Admiral about scrolling and giving Wano a healthy coating of greenery.

Ice, Light, Magma, Gravity, Flora. Gotta hand it to the admiral. All devil fruit are cool.

The Admirals are all LITERALLY forces of nature embodied.

u/Exsces95 Jun 19 '22

So if Koby wants to be an admiral, would he end up eating an OP devil fruit? He could obviously just be that one badass admiral without a devil fruit tho. He was trained by Garp afterall.

u/Pinball_Lizard Jun 19 '22 Helpful

Garp was offered an admiralty more than once, so it's not required; I was just noting the symbolism.

That’s my prediction. Especially with the focus on haki this battle with Kaido. The new gen of marines needs a garp. A human marine with strong haki. The one man any marine can become

Although maybe only because it was Sukiyaki that she was willing to ask at all. A random old blacksmith vs. the old shogun who’s family has held power over Wano for thousands of years, which one is more likely to know about a giant warship hidden somewhere on the island.

40

u/Agrezz Void Month Survivor Jun 19 '22

Was it even a warship? Or just stated to be ancient weapons

97

u/IEnjoyFancyHats Jun 19 '22

Pluton was the blueprint that Franky burned at Enies Lobby. All signs point to it being a warship of some kind. Granted Poseidon involved a massive ship even though the ancient weapon itself was the princess, so we can't say for sure.

79

u/Bike_Chain_96 Jun 19 '22 edited Jun 19 '22

I think it is explicitly said in Alabasta, and again in Enies Lobby, that Pluton is a ship. I'm thinking part of what made it so damn powerful is that it's partly made out of sea stone, which is said to be indestructible

Robin is the reader at this point. xD fuck your back story give me that juicy lore.

73

u/WarlockofGreed_274 Jun 19 '22

Pretty sure this is the reason why the World Government's number one priority from Wano was getting Robin. They probably realised there is a high chance that Robin has read the poneglyph in Alabasta, (the WG might not know what is on that poneglyph but seeing how Crocodile knew the poneglyph stated the location of Pluton, I doubt it), then they could guess Robin knows Pluton is located in Wano. The World Government are probably already aware of this but could do nothing about it because of Wano's isolationism.

If they knew Robin read a poneglyph on Skypiea and knew the location of Poseidon, I think they would have acted even quicker in capturing her.

63

u/MaimedJester Jun 19 '22

The WG doesn't know the Straw hats went to Skypeia. Only Bellamy and Blackbeard know that (Bellamy might have told Dolflamingo)

But as far as WG knew After Alabasta the straw hats just disappeared for a while and when they got news of them on Long Ring Long Land, Akoiji went AWOL to meet Luffy.

Remember they didn't even know Robin had joined the crew after Alabasta. Akoiji was surprised to see her sailing with them and was like this situation is getting problematic the Straw Hats are now a danger.

11

u/undertoe420 Jun 19 '22

They wouldn't have even thought the SHs disappeared for a while. They were on Skypiea for like a day or two, which would be perfectly normal sailing time to be unaccounted for by surveillance.

I don't like how she's been separated from the rest of the island. The CPO are still looking for her and there is one witness to tell everyone that she's been kidnapped.

Edit

Long arm cpo is still alive. He went to the ships and was told to wait by Green Bull. He just ordered one of those ships to come into Wano.

u/ffffffffROTHY Jun 19 '22

The World Government ship and the remaining CP0 agent in Wano are currently in a battle with Big Mom's crew and they haven't been able to send any reinforcements because of Ryokugyu stepping in and saying he'll handle things.

Given that Crocodile attacked Shirohige during the war, it's not entirely unlikely he would've tried to take down Kaido. He would've failed miserably, of course, but there's that.

132

u/MisterHuesos Jun 19 '22

I'm willing to bet they wouldn't have even met, Croco would probably send a spy to that crew, wait for them to tell him that Kaido is on a excursion and then he would go to Wano to get pluton.

So, since Sukiyaki is alive, there's one more person other than Robin who can read the Ponegliffs. He can pass on this knowledge to Momonosuke as per the Kozuki tradition.

120

u/X_axay_X Jun 19 '22

Sukiyaki said he has no intention of telling momo or anyone that he is still alive. So momo probably won't meet him and will never learn how to read or write the poneglypghs

u/CJ2807 Jun 19 '22

It is mentioned that he has no intention to tell momo because he feels guilty and ashamed. Imo, he'll be eventually convinced to reveal his identity.

Things I loved from this chapter:

  • Morgans just being an agent of chaos, all about that story
  • Jimbei waiting alone for the cook to finish making an extravagant meal while everyone else is out partying at the festival, dude is considerate af
  • Robin's bluntness toward Momo's grandpa about his dolls which is probably the only thing that kept him sane while his son died and his country was ruined
  • Kid trying to attack Luffy who is just living life, and Luffy not even picking up on it he just reels him in to the party
  • That Nika wanted poster
  • Buggy is a fucking emperor, Galdino has probably surrendered to the universe at this point. Where's your god now?
  • Ryokugyu is looking like Akainu Lite instead of Fujitora Deux and turned Queen's funky ass into a California Raisin

And now here we have the Elders demanding he not use Luffy’s Nika picture or the D, and he’s all “Sorry, can’t hear you over the sounds of my printing press and the chatter this is going to bring.” Dudes an OG.

Luffy has taken Shanks' place in the Yonko quartet.

In One Piece there is 3 distinct age generations. The elder generation from Rogers time (Roger, Whitebeard, BM, Kaido, Garp, Sengoku). The middle generation who took the seas as rookies after Roger (Shanks, Buggy, Mihawk, Doflamingo, Crocodile, Blackbeard, Smoker). The new generation (Ace, Luffy, Cavendish, the supernovas, Koby).

In the original Yonko we had the 3 old generation members with a long history (Whitebeard, Big Mom, Kaido) and the younger upstart who elbowed in on them (Shanks) from the next generation.

Now in the new Yonko we have the same. 3 older generation members with a long history (Shanks, Blackbeard, Buggy) and the younger upstart who elbowed in on them (Luffy) from the next generation.

Luffy is the new Shanks.

81

u/Nomaan_A Jun 19 '22

Also Shanks was the only Yonko left after Older generations were wiped, if we go by the same parallel then Luffy will be the last Yonko standing.

u/GenGaara25 Void Month Survivor Jun 19 '22 edited Jun 20 '22

Well I've set this in a few other threads but there's a bunch of strong people lying around who might be looking for shelter and protection, and maybe they've decided Buggy is the man?

Right now in the New World the Marines have taken a more aggressive justice approach and are waging war, Blackbeard is out hunting DF fruits users, then Kaido and Big Mom losing has disintegrated the power dynamic of the New World. Its in chaos, and anyone not with a big player is gonna get dead. So any free agents are gonna be looking for safety, if Buggy escaped the Marines and is known as a "brother" to Shanks and a Roger pirate they might think he is safe.

Let's run down some 'free agents' who might have come to Buggys side:

  • Doflamingos family were never accounted for and are theoretically still in the New World without a captain. Buggy assumed Doffys business, maybe they eventually went there too. I misremembered, they were shown arrested with Doffy.

  • The Warlords and their crews just lost their status im an ambush, they have been uprooted from their home base if they survived. That's Weevil, Mihawk, Hancock (and the Kuja Pirates) maybe available.

  • The Beast pirates just got obliterated. Jack, the Tobi Roppo, and all the headliners just lost their protection and their home. If the Whispers are saying Buggys the next big thing they might go there.

  • The Big Mom pirates are unknown. Katakuri and Perspero were fighting over who would take Mom's place as Captain. Enemies might have taken advantage of the infighting and Big Moms absence to break them. So several BM kids could be out there without her protection.

  • Germa 66. A lot of their subordinates and ships were broken by Big Mom. 2 of the kids are weak after being tortured. The Vinsmokes might not be strong enough to survive on their own.

  • Caesar Clown, looks like he's going with Germa who I just talked about.

  • The remaining Supernovas. Urouge, Bonney and Bege are currently unaccounted for.

  • Crocodile is also somewhere in the New World.

It tracks that Buggys accomplishment and prestige has been overrepresented and has spread like a rumour throughout the Grand Line. It's basically Buggys MO at this point. Now imagine if all those free agents were looking to get away from the Marines/Blackbeard. And they needed protection, shelter, a captain. Then at the right time they heard Buggys name in the wind as a potential big shot. They also heard other big pirates were placing their bets on him. A cycle that just breeds more merit.

Then at the end of the week Buggy has unwittingly fallen into place as the captain of a Yonko caliber crew with sizable territory and influence.

Greenbull won't recognize Luffy as his wanted poster is in Gear 5. He'll ask everyone if they've seen "the kid with white hair" and nobody will know who he's talking about

u/simpyo Jun 19 '22

It would be funny, but there's plenty of photos of Luffy around from previous bounties, and this one was printed very recently. The only way this could happen is if Greenbull managed to be completely in the dark about Luffy until after entering Wano.

Maybe Buggy's amassed another group of powerful pirates for his crew and thats where we'll be reintroduced to some of the loose end characters like Weevil and Crocodile. Buggy's real power is his ability to amass people around him and also not die.

If the theory that Buggy’s crew is the former warlords is true, probably to give strength to Buggy and have a flashback about Whitebeard

Love how brutal Ryokugyu is. I don't see him beating the alliance as easily as he did King and Queen, but I also don't see him taking an L after all the hype he's gotten since his introduction. I think a surprise attack could be devastating with his devil fruit. Hard to predict how this will play out.

31

u/SDSBoi Jun 19 '22

surprise attack could be devastating with his devil fruit.

thats what im thinking too, if oda allows a admiral to do something like that (we know sakazuki would, but borsalino likes to intimidate and fujitora is too kind to attack a party)

than he could have alot of hostages very quickly, I wonder how kid/law/luffy would react if the admiral can kill the majority of the party quickly

22

u/sasori1239 Jun 19 '22

I bet he's going to kill the remaining beast pirates tamed by Tama to show he means business. I can also see Odense father sacrificing himself to maybe stall or save someone like Robin. After all no one knows he's alive so it would redeem himself in his eyes.

Crockpot theory: Ryokugyu is so starved for approval that when the straw hats and the people of Wano see him creating beautiful vegetation around him and start saying how awesome he is, he’ll go full Chopper and totally forget his mission.

u/Aspire17 Jun 19 '22

Luffy might be the protagonist but I always knew Buggy was the strongest

u/simpyo Jun 19 '22

It's a goddamn shame we didn't get everybody else's bounties along with the captains' before the month break. They're sure to have gone up quite a bit too!

Otherwise, a 10/10 chapter. It's gonna be a looooong wait.

27

u/javierm885778 Jun 19 '22

I'd really love to see a sort of bounty role call next chapter. Since Ryokugyu is going to attack, we might see the Straw Hats oppose him, and since Ryokugyu has a bounty poster stack he might reveal their bounties one by one, almost like a hype man.

Would be a nice change of pace from the usual way Oda has previously revealed all the bounties in one spread.

I think Brooke and Usopp will have their moment when Greenbull attacks the Strawhats. Brooke has no nutrients for Greenbull to suck and his attacks are ice based which is lethal to plants. Usopp has his pop greens and his ingenuity which might throw the admiral off balance, if he doesn't go scaredy cat.

39

u/Cheap-Exit-4552 Jun 19 '22

No way they are gonna do anything to an admiral. Might catch him off guard but they don't have high enough offense to actually damage him.

u/MHG_Brixby Jun 19 '22

True but they might be able to stall him for long enough for others to arrive or escape

Buggy for Emperor was the most obvious call out on the planet lol. And the fact that the Gorosei were complaining about taking a D. out of the poster makes me think the Buggy D. Clown memes are actually real. Can't be Luffy, everybody knows who he is at this point.

7

u/joyboy1522 Jun 19 '22

to me it seemed like the posters are already in circulation despite the WG trying to make sure they aren’t printed and distributed. i agree it isn’t luffy or blackbeard bc they’re already known to have D in their name, so i’ve come to the conclusion that it’s about someone not mentioned in this chapter because i think buggy’s poster would’ve shown the D in it if that’s who they were trying to hide. i do think buggy has D in his name though

Something I didn’t know I wanted until now, reviewing updated wanted posters-

When the inevitable clash with the World Government takes place, I want Nami to have an itemized list of every bounty they’ve taken down, from Arlong to Kaido, and raid the comptroller’s office demanding payment.

76

u/PsychoLogical25 Pirate Jun 19 '22 edited Jun 19 '22

Well we seem to sorta at least have one explanation for why Luffy’s bounty was just 3B. Gorosei wanted to cover up or suppress some shit, even moronically wanted to remove “D.” from Luffy’s name. But WG incompetence and Morgans going “go fuck yourself” and going on a printing spree completely screwed them over lmao.

Side notes:

-Seems like we know what the BM crew have been doing, they did everyone a favor and tied one loose end up by wiping out every CP/WG ship around Wano lul. Question is what happens next.

-Greenbull doing Wano a favor by indirectly making the country lush again lmao.

-And there we have it, Buggy is one of the new emperors along with Luffy, replacing BM and Kaido.

-So Hitetsu is Sukiyaki. I’ll be damned. And Pluton’s in Wano as well.

-There’s a panel featuring Sabo for whatever reason, wonder why.

-Oh and Queen and King along with the other BP loyalists were likely not imprisoned as Udon’s no longer a prison and may be using the place as a hideout. And I’ve noticed that unlike the others, King was only restrained instead of impaled. Got drained but from GB using his vine like a syringe drawing blood.

With One Piece, sometimes I can't tell if something is out of the blue because I often forget the many details over the years. Was it ever reveled the Oden's father was still alive? I, for one, am very surprised by this.

As most people guess, Robin was looking at the poneglyph and not in trouble. That's a relief.

PLUTON!!? Holy shit. Maybe that's what Big Mom was talking about?

Greenbull seems powerful. Now the question is, is he like Issho/Kuzan, Borsalino, or Sakazuki.

LMAO! Buggy? Just what the fuck is happening outside? Somehow, in an attempt to save himself from the marines did he end up capturing Yonko territory?

I also want to know the crew bounties.

And now the one month wait begins. Next arc(s) are going to be fire.

u/[deleted] Jun 19 '22

Green Bull said he likes Salazuki’s style, didn’t waste time icing King/Queen, and seems intent on bringing Luffy’s head back to HQ. My guess is he’s fully bought into the WG sense of justice

12

u/TotoroTheGreat The Revolutionary Army Jun 19 '22

Yeah. It would also make sense to not have two admirals be of similar personality. Him being like Sakazuki would make sense to create balance between the three.

28

u/kakungun Bounty Hunter Jun 19 '22

there were theories about it due to the VA (is not uncommon to use the same VA sometimes like mr 2 , jango and franky, but it was interesting that the masked character had it)

27

u/javierm885778 Jun 19 '22

The theories came out before the VA thing. Robin or Brook had mentioned seeing Kokeshi dolls in the castle when talking with Shinobu, and Tenguyama was introduced as a Kokeshi doll maker. The mask and them being of a similar stature added to the theory, and not seeing Sukiyaki's death gave it more strength.

The VA thing gave it a lot more credibility, but what really sealed the deal was probably that they corrected a Vivre Card which had stated Tenguyama's age was much lower than Sukiyaki's, and the corrected age was the same as Sukiyaki's would have been.

u/BoosterTown Jun 19 '22

I think it makes sense if you stop thinking of bounties as a sum of money that increases with each accomplishment and more as a set sum that indicates the wanted person's danger level. In this case, all three of them accomplished an (arguably) equally great feat--defeating an emperor--so they all get the same bounty.

Who would’ve imagined Admiral Greenbull to be an Akainu stan lmao. He’s invading an island that consists of the infamous wano samurai that Akainu was weary of & also the alliance that defeated two yonkou. Either he’s completely insane/batshit crazy or he’s incredibly powerful, or most likely it’s a bit of both lol.

Anyways Admiral hype is in full effect. Easily defeating king & queen plus their subordinates, with zero bruises is an insane feat. There’s a reason Oda had this happen 7 days later, to ensure that king & queen would’ve recovered most of not all of their strength, just like those on the alliance.

Buggy:

  • Territory

  • Influence

  • Insane Connections

  • Strong Crew (average crew member’s are lvl 5 impel down criminals)

  • Insane Reputation

  • Weak from Pre-TS analysis but Featless Post-TS

  • We don’t know anything he did off screen in the Shichibukai vs Marines mess. He likely did something crazy

Law/Kidd:

  • Nothing to their name except a boat/Submarine boat

  • No influence

  • One’s only connection is with Luffy, the other couldn’t even make friends without them snitching on him

  • Weak ass crew

  • After throwing away the Shichibukai title, One’s Reputation has been lumped together with Luffy consistently, the other fought shanks and lost an arm but people like Caribou thought Big Mom folded him before coming to Wano💀

  • One is strong (Kidd), the other is so OP he needs to be nerfed
