ZORO AND LAW “THE BADASS DUO” VS JACK INCOMING

After the recent chapter, many people believe that we will propably have a Jack vs Strawhats showdown and i am one of them!

But, i still believe it’s gonna be a seperation between the strawhats!

Luffy will take few people with him(I believe except for Pekoms, Raizou will join him as well) and Zoro with Law will prepare for the trip to Wano!

However, there is a small obstacle… none other that Jack himself…! and i will explain why…

We know that he went on a rescue mission to save Doflamingo from getting imprison!

In addition, we know he is heading to Impel Down!

Now, let’s look the map…

As you can see,Impel Down is on the west while the strawhats are in the opposite direction(east/Zou).

We know that Jack , managed to attack the marines before reaching Impel Down!

Also, we know that he left the island the same day Doflamingo was defeated!That was 11 days ago…! And base on chapter 807(ten days ago) half of the strawhats reached Zou!

So, if i have to take a guess… the distance at that time(It’s a moving island) between Dressrosa and Zou was approximately 1-2 days at most!(read chapter 807 , it will help you understand how many days has passed since entering the NW!Base on my calculations they are 14-15 days)

Taken into consideration the analysis i just made, it’s highly possible that he managed to catch up with the navy really quick!

If we also take into the account that the navy left Dressrosa the third day after the battle…!2

It is beautifully adds up!

In my opinion, Jack managed to catch up around here!

In the proccess managed to sink two ships, but sustained some injuries and considered dead…

However,he failed to retrieve doflamingo and base on the last chapter, he is alive and by the looks of it, he is been accompanied by a large fleet!

So, guys let’s refresh our memory!

What was his initial mission?
To retrieve Raizou!
And where he is now?
He is on Zou!
So, what he is going to do?
He is going to complete, his unfinished mission!

I think it’s a pretty logical way of thinking , don’t you think?

Even if he wants to go somewhere else, he has to pass to Zou…!

I think it’s very unlikely to move on , straight to Big Mom’s tea party… I doubt he even knows anything about it…

Also, take note that the battle between him and the navy occured around 8 days ago(11-3=8…xD)!

He had 8 whole days to rest,to heal,to prepair(fleet)and to travel back on Zou to put an end to his unfinished business!

So, he must be pretty close to Zou!

That means a SHOWDOWN!I can feel the hype!:)

In my opinion, since there is the Sanji matter on one hand and the Jack matter on the other , they will have no choice but to split!

But why split and not go all together to save Sanji?

1.Luffy said he will go alone, although i doubt he will be completely alone… he will take at least two![Pekoms and Raizou(stealth)… they will sneak!]

2.I think it was foreshadowed that, it’s going to be a match between Zoro vs Jack!
a)They both are the right hand man of their captains!
b)They both use swords as weapons
c)When the minks were talking about Jack, Oda focused on Zoro twice for a reason!c011

3.There is no way Zoro, will go after Sanji after making that speech1

4.The strawhats befriended the minks and i don’t think they will leave them at their fate…Luffy will entrust Zoro with the mission to protect them any way he can!I believe Law will stay too, since his good friend Bepo is from Zou!Let’s not forget they are still many of them injured

5.Lastly… maybe one of the biggest mysteries… the moon!
We have yet to be relieved , what happens when the full moon is out!

I think i gave you some solid points!

To move on with the last part of my theory!

The last part of this theory will be a speculation, but if you think about it , it will might make some sense!

I think in this fight we will have a Law and Zoro vs Jack battle, like we had the Law and Luffy combination against Doflamingo!
So, this combination could be turn out to be true!

Also, they are similar in personalities…both badass,cool,serious and bloodthirsty when they fight!

In my opinion, this duo will be amazing!

To conclude, i think we will have a big revelation regarding Zoro’s past from the moment he will release his demonic spirit!
Yes, i think this will be the fight that we will see him go all out!

This will be the moment when Zoro will trully connect to Wano and it will ignite his desire to go to Wano even more and learn about his past and lineage!

I don’t know how the fight will turn out… but i believe , during this fight Jack will tell him about his demonic/cursed clan or lineage and to how he might connect to one of his future enemies!

I hope you enjoyed my theory

KOUZUKI FAMILY’S LINKS WITH THE ANCIENT KINGDOM

Recently we were introduced to the Kougetsu family, which was re-named the “Kouzuki” family.

Kou + Getsu = Deep Red/Crimson + Moon

Kou + Zuki = Light + Moon

However, with deeper searches, I found out that Kou also means “Scarlet”:

Kou + Zuki = Scarlet/Light + Moon

 

Notice how Kouzuki/Kougetsu are both associated with the Moon.

The Red Poneglyph & The Kouzuki Family Crest

[IMG]

Seeing as how Kouzuki can mean “Scarlet Moon”, and scarlet is a deep red colour, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kouzuki family were the ones who were involved with the creation/placing of the Red Poneglyph in Zou.

If this were true, then it would mean that they had strong links with the Ancient Kingdom.

Interestingly, the colour red is usually affiliated with happiness in Japanese culture, unlike Western culture where it represents negativity (danger, death etc…)

So what if the Red Poneglyph doesn’t tell us of any thing bad, but rather, something good:
I was thinking that it might’ve talked about how the Kouzuki & Minks became united due to the AK helping out. Just speculation though.

We also know that Wano has no links with the World Government, its fighters being so strong that they even scare away marines.

This would mean that during the Void Century, the 20 Kingdoms were perhaps unable to invade and destroy Wano Kingdom – thus the Wano may know a lot about the happenings of that time since they survived.

Luffy interested?
Luffy rarely ever cares for such things.
Usually he starts snoring, picking his nose, or outright says he doesn’t care.

It’s interesting that Oda chose to show Luffy being actually interested in what “Kouzuki” is.

Most of us can agree by now that the Ancient Kingdom was probably alien in origin, possibly coming from the moon.
“D. = Half-Moon Theory”

Clover’s Illustration Of The Ancient Kingdom

Look at this:

[IMG]

Don’t the 8 balls surrounding the bigger ball at the centre of the crane resemble the 8 phases of the Moon around Earth?

Defo interesting. Another link with the Moon.

Furthermore, the crane crest may be based on the real life Daimyo crane crest:

[IMG]

I found out that it’s also the symbol for the Japan Airlines:

[IMG]

Could the Kouzuki’s Kamon represent freedom?
The red represents happiness.

Additionally, the Tsuru Kamon (Crane Family Crest) is usually affiliated with royalty in Japan.

Look at this:

[IMG]

There are several Crane-Kamons on Luffy’s kimono – could this have been a foreshadowing of the Kouzuki, or also, have been a foreshadowing of Luffy being of royalty.

It’s a common theory that Luffy is descended from Joy Boy (King of the AK), and thus is of royalty.

If we dig deeper, it could be a link between the D. People (AK People) and the Kouzuki.

Since the Crane-Kamon is common in Japan, it could just be a coincidence.
But we know that Oda doesn’t add things for nothing.

[IMG]

Remember this?

How about this?

[IMG]

Seems familiar.

Seeing as how the first symbol represents the Celestial Dragons, could the second symbol represent the Ancient Kingdom?
Or more particularly, an important ‘sub’-symbol of the Ancient Kingdom.

Seeing the links between the Kouzuki Family and the Ancient Kingdom, I wouldn’t be surprised if the main royalty (Oden & Momo) of the Kouzuki Family are actually D. in origin.
By D. I mean being descendants of the Ancient Kingdom.

As we know, the Ancient Kingdom had a unity of different countries (e.g. Fishman Island, Shandora etc…), so since the Kouzuki were likely part of that unity, their main royalty could’ve been related to them.

[IMG]

Momonosuke, like his father, can hear the “Voice Of All Things” (perhaps Law too since he’s drawn silent in the same row), and Neko & Inua say that someone else they remember could too.
It could’ve been Roger.

Seeing as so far all of those who could hear the Voice Of All Things are D. People (descendants of the AK), then perhaps the main royalty of the Kouzuki Family are descendants too.

8 Races = 8 Balls

Here we see 9 different Races.
But since the Fishmen and Merfolk live together, we can count this as 8.

If not the moon phases, could the 8 small balls in the crest be a reference to these 8 ‘Races’.

This is all speculation though, as so far we haven’t gotten too much info on the Kouzuki Family.

*Theory by Saffron Kaizoku

RORONOA ZORO IS THE DESCENDANT OF RYUMA!?!

I have a wild idea about Zoro and Ryuma!

Such as the title says I believe Ryuma and Zoro are related!

I don’t know how, but I believe Zoro is the direct descendant from Ryuma!

1.
To back my theory a little bit up I would start with an SBS where Oda tells the reader which nationality the Strawhats might have in the real world!
A fan asked this question and Oda replied Japanese for Zoro!

As we all are the same opinion, that Wano are based on ancient Japan, the possibility for Zoro having his roots there getting a bit higher if you are optimistic as me :rofl:.

2.
We know Ryuma from Wano is the same Ryuma from Oda’s previous one-shot manga, Monsters. And when we look at his appearance :

Ryuma before his death in Monsters!
[​IMG]

He looks almost like Zoro, only the black hair and his Samurai hairstyle are different!
He even eats one of Zoros favorite attacks “Onigiri”

Ryuma is also lefthanded just like Zoro, because Samurai have their swords on the right hip when they are lefthanded!
[​IMG]

People might say, that this is to obvious but I don’t think so, Oda managed to link Ryuma from Monsters with One Piece so he could easily do that with Ryuma and Zoro as direct descendants and it does make even sense, at least for me :).

3. Even the plot with Shusui the national treasure of Wano could be solved, when the Samurais of Wano see the potential of Zoro as a Swordsman. Furthermore if one of the old folks see the similarity in their appearance, then they will acknowledge Zoro as a direct descendant and the only true holder of Shusui and everything is fine.

Maybe this arc will also give us more backstory about Zoro, why he isn’t on Wano etc.

4.
Zoros behavior is just like that of an Samurai, even Vivi gave him the nickname Mr. Bushido. Bushido is the codex/credo of Samurais, a guide of how they live etc.
People might say, a lot of Swordsman are like that, but that’s false, he really acts like a Samurai and that’s not a coincedence, because I believe Oda plans big things with him in Wano!

So this are a few little back ups for my theory! I highly believe it!
———————————
So in addition to that I also believe, that I know where exactly in Wano he came from!

I believe the Wano Kingdom is based on the Book “The Book of Five Rings” from ancient Japan greatest Samurai Miyamoto Musashi!

The five “books” refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. The five books below are Musashi’s descriptions of the exact methods or techniques which are described by such elements.

  • The Book of Earth chapter serves as an introduction, and metaphorically discusses martial arts, leadership, and training as building a house.
  • The Book of Water chapter describes Musashi’s style, Ni-ten ichi-ryu, or “Two Heavens, One Style”. It describes some basic technique and fundamental principles.
  • The Book of Fire chapter refers to the heat of battle, and discusses matters such as different types of timing.
  • The Book of Wind chapter is something of a pun, since the Japanese character can mean both “wind” and “style” (e.g., of martial arts). It discusses what Musashi considers to be the failings of various contemporary schools of swordfighting.
  • The Book of the Void chapter is a short epilogue, describing, in more esoteric terms, Musashi’s probably Zen-influenced thoughts on consciousness and the correct mindset.

So I believe Wano Kingom is splitted in 5 areas/islands where 5 different techniques of fighting dominating each area/island.
This is also why the names of Samurai are spelled that way!

Foxfire Kinemon is from the Fire area/island where the best fire-technique Samurais came from

Jigoro of the wind is from the wind area/island

Shilew of the rain is from the water area/island etc!

There’s also the earth area/island where they specialized in earth based techniques!

Every island hast a different clima (snow,hot, autumn etc)
Since Zoros favorite island is a autum in a autum island I believe his descendants came from a Wano autum island where all the Sakura trees losing their leaves just like the Japanese love.

But the most important is the void island, it’s very related to the void century, it’s almost destroyed for 800 years ago from the Worldgoverment who were able to control dragons, that’s why Samurai hate Dragons.

Only a Poneglyph left and there are only a few Samurai Grand Masters who know the secret techniques! Zoro will learn those techniques when he shows he’s worthy!

Btw I believe the best Swordssmiths of the world are in Wano and we will know more about the Wado Ichi Monji and that Kojiro is also from Wano!

Hope you enjoyed it guys!
