It’s clear from the title guys I’m personally annoyed how Oda never gives Zoro his own rivals who hope to become the WSS and provide some challenge for Zoro or is that just wishful thinking and barely there are any swordsman who care about reaching this goal?
That would be cool, seeing someone like Law as a goal to be the WSS with his df. I think Oda missed his chance with Zoro having rivals that want to reach his dream. I think he tried in Marineford with Vista, but it felt a little forced. Shit even Luffy dream seem like everyone kinda given up on that. Maybe Oda is saying both of their dreams is unattainable so why even bother, you know? Luffy and Zoro was born with this, "idgaf" attitude and are determine to achieve their unattainable dream while everyone else bent the knee or given up.
Zoro journey has been exhilarating for me because I like the character so much. I woudlnt care as much about One Piece without that green hair charismatic simple man. Hes the x factor to the success of One Piece. How is it night and day? Luffy and Zoro path to greatness doesnt have to be the same to reach the top. Since you compared their opponents; how could luffy beat Mr. 1? Its not night and day to me. Theyre many times Oda went out of his way to put two comparable opponents where Luffy and Zoro can dance with. for fishmen island: Hordy and Hyouzou both went on a same transformation after overdosing.
At the end of the day, Oda needs to stop nerfing Zoro for future arcs, but create compelling mini arcs for zoro fights. I guess One Piece would never end, or cut a lot of the filler. Let him get lost, and have his own story going on sometimes.
He will fight the great vista 1v1 before Milaugh. Anyway ez pez dream for Zoro, dude even got trained by the one he wants to surpass, what more should he ask, he will do the same with some random dude, he will train him and then handle the title to the next generation, such is the way of the ``wss``. The only weird thing is that there is no competition, but if zolo is happy gg for him.
