    Chapter 972: The End of Oden

    February 21, 2020 by Fliu

    At last, the flashback reaches the point where Oden meets his demise. I’m sure we can all agree that Oden lived an eventful life. It's sad that it ended with him experiencing treachery. I say it's a good thing that Momonosuke and Hiyori were not there at the execution site. I don’t think they could handle watching their father going through such torture and they may find themselves in a similar situation like Toko. How nice of Kaido to kill the old hag. I wish we could have seen her death. May Oden rest in peace.

    Orochi better enjoy his position in power while it lasts. When the revolution is over and assuming he's not killed during the raid, he better not expect mercy from those he oppressed for so long. If I get to choose how he dies, I s…

    So it seems that Oden is not dying just yet. Hopefully, this flashback will end in the next 1-2 chapters. The one thing I hate is Oda making Orochi's past tragic just so Orochi has reason to justify his actions. Well, I already decided a long time ago that I’m not going to have any sympathy for Orochi so this changes nothing.

    Once again, it’s a shame that Oden was naïve. It's too bad he did not had anyone to point out the flaws of his thinking like Luffy did for Vivi back in the Alabasta Arc. I hope Oden really did not had any regrets, considering hundreds if not thousands will be joining him in the afterlife. Hyogoro and Yasuie had been reduced to pitiful states. Yasuie could not live happily with his daughter and Hyogoro had to endure 20 …

    It's a shame that Oden was so naïve. As Kaido said, things would have turned out differently if Oden did not waste the past five years being a foolish lord. I do give Oden credit for wounding Kaido, but it does not change the fact that the time he spent embarrassing himself amounted to nothing. Curse that old hag for using such a cheap trick.

    It seems that fate always ensures that the Straw Hats will be in conflict with big bad guys. If Law had not run into Vergo on the night Rosinante died, then Doflamingo's plans would have been exposed. If Shirahoshi had turned Hody in, then the Straw Hats would not have to fight him and his crew. If Oden had rallied the people instead of making them hate him (before Hyogoro's capture), then there's a ch…

    I’m going to be honest with you. It's hard seeing Oden going through such humiliation. What makes this even worse is knowing that Oden and his Scabbards are going to fail and that Orochi's corruption will claim more lives for the next 20 years. At least the Scabbards deserve some praise for their loyalty.

    What is also known for a fact is that Orochi's two aides would have to die at some point. If they die at the hands of Oden or any of the Scabbards, then that would be some consolation in the fall of the Kozuki Family. For their part in Orochi's rise to power, those two aides better not get to have peaceful deaths.

    This is it. The beginning of the Kozuki Family's downfall has begun. May as well enjoy looking at Orochi's scared face because we all know that it's not going to last long. Unless Oda has other plans, I’m guessing Oden is going to die in the next chapter. I hope we at least see his fight with Kaido, in which he gave Kaido his scar.
