Figured this would warrant a talk page since there's something to say for both things and some people are already being stubborn about it, but what will we do with the silhouette that appeared on page 16 of the chapter as Shanks talked about the new generation. We see a silhouette that could perfectly be a young Uta. It's not 100% clear, though. However, it fits within the context of Film Red being promoted, it fits what Shanks says about the newer generation (which I guess includes his daughter), and it fits appearance-wise. I say we can say with certainty that it's Uta. It looks like a duck, it's in a duck pond, it has to be a duck. Other thoughts? 15:41, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
If it fits appeareance-wise, then that should be good enough for now unless we had some additional evidence that would go against that being the most obvious conclusion. Damage3245 (talk) 15:42, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
(Shirahoshi also has that hairstyle and would fit the new era thing) But I agree it's definitely Uta and I don't think there's any problem with saying it is. DewClamChum (talk) 16:09, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
It's a manga. Things don't have to be stated to be something, because it contains pictures. It allows people to make out something by looking at the pictures. Get it?17:17, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
Then tell me why https://onepiece.fandom.com/wiki/Jack?diff=1617559&oldid=1612823 this is different than Uta if it's "obvious" SeaTerror (talk) 18:21, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
I'm also not convinced that's Uta. I can't tell who or what that is, really, and one thing that looks like a hair-loop isn't really enough to form a solid conclusion. Her presence there would also mean Uta is canon, which is a whole other discussion.20:53, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
It's pretty clearly Uta. Oda knows what he's doing by drawing a silhouette like that at around the same time the next big movie is coming out, especially since he's even drawing whole special pages featuring her now. Speaking of which, said special page that went with this chapter had her writing a song called "New Era", which is the namesake of the chapter. Same page with the silhouette? Shanks mentions the New Era. Maybe you can call that speculation, but it seems more speculative to assume Oda is just drawing a silhouette that's distinctly similar to this special character and NOT making it her. Besides, it's not like it's the first time a movie character (created by Oda) has been referenced in the manga. Shiki had one or two mentions around the time Strong World came out (plus Chapter 0 although that isn't really a part of the manga itself. kinda more similar to the special uta pages, but I digress). If this isn't meant to be Uta, that's a huge mistake on Oda's part, because pretty much everybody saw that panel and thought of Uta.06:12, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
