I must say, I was kinda disappointed to be getting an Oden flashback, because it was right before the invasion, so I was kinda hating on it. The chapters so far have been OK.
963 just turned that all around and exploded. Made me realise why I love One Piece so much.
Neko and Inu, Kappa. Yasuie helping them ❤ and set up for Oden vs Whitebeard
Can someone clarify is that girl BM or am I losing my mind? Also, that clash at the end was so HYPE!!!! And baby Kawamatsu is pretty cute I must say.
I'm seriously hoping next chapter we learn who WB's first mate was/will be before Oden if Oden ends up becoming first mate. Because Marco was an apprentice at the time.
It was cool seeing Jozu and Vista. I'd have to take a little longer to figure out who the other ones were, but I got to go.
It is Whitey Bay, she may have been first mate
Ahh okay that makes a lot more sense than BM. And who knows maybe. She was the only other one to get dialogue besides Marco and WB on the crew...
Also, another cool foreshadowing. In an interview with Naito, Oda says Wano is connected to the end.
We know Neko and Inu joined Oden on Whitbeard's ship, and none of the other Scabbards. And now we know why. The three of them are connected to the poneglyphs.
Oden knows because it is his family history, Inu and Neko know because they were told the history; (then they left to sea to go to Wano themselves lol). They even mention they've seen his seal in Zou.
Knowing that, Oden joined Whitebeard because he wanted to go to Raftel.
After discovering Whitebeard had no intention of reaching Raftel, and meeting Roger. He joined Roger and travelled with him.
This is a real connection between Oden and the final arc in the series. I think it is going to be massive.
I don't think Oden wanted to go to Raftel. He simply wanted to have adventure on sea. Oden joined Roger because Roger needed his help in order to change the world.
I guess we'll find out soon.
There is definitely evidence for my theory though
Bro, Odens flashback it will be one of the best ones ...
WB, Roger, Young Kaido, some One Piece treasure related infos, Raftel..
The Ancient Kingdom, possible Zoros ancestors ...
Every page is a hype hahaha at least for me
Chapter 963 was really god.
Fired up for one piece after a long time ( I was sure that I would see " break next week " written on the last panel but there wasn't)
the whole introduction was key to me and of course whitebeard young and healthy that alone was amazing especially the clash with oden that should be looking badass in the anime.
but with the recent interview what came out the introduction to this chapter was key so many questions.
i think we possibly might find out about some information on the void century at some point soon oden should know something about the ponyglyphs and when he joins rodger he will possibly be the person who shows him how read and carve information onto them?
but the fact oda has said wano is key to the endgame we may get finally a touch of information lol plus it made me think about zou.
doesn't it not wonder the seas why didn't neko and inu not know of any other islands i know they're young but really they only knew of five islands. that alone is five islands that makes me wonder zou is after all an elephant was it grazing peacefully around raftel ?
like i said the intro was vital i think its the start of oda revealing something we aint going to find out what the one piece is but maybe why the wg are so paranoid about it.
plus i think wano has already been pretty dark as a whole this arc is going to make Luffy do the unthinkable ? i personally think how oda is changing it up there's a lot of death in wano.
What do you think?
