I think we will get a short ryuma flashback when zoro visits his grave. Also I hope we get a short timeskip. A timeskip of like 1-6 months should be done after wano. After the straw hats leave the world would have entered in chaos and we would get reintroduced to characters we know like Kidd and law( future yonko imo).
Think like the scene when the worst gen entered the new world. Kidd and law would get reintroduced with new designs and as yonko. Oda can speed some things up off screen also.
@rerere I was also thinking that the fight on the roof begins getting so intense, it slowly breaks the island apart while arriving to the Mainland. We've seen Zoro cut one of the horns off, for example. Something I thought about was that giant Katana lying around which Kid uses on Kaido, and the result is massive collateral damage. That's not even including some of the crazy things Kaido and Linlin might start doing in retaliation. The roof stability is starting to wane, too.
Only problem is how Oda manages the time frame. Can Onigashima reasonably be whittle down enough before it falls on the Capital?
It's a cool parallel. I like it. 30 chapters for the actual war is pretty good. That would also make the exact 100 chapter mark of the arc (909-1008) if we moved on from there.
Though I'm curious. It still feels like Act 3 needs more buildup before the full matches. If it was 60 chapters (another 12 chapters), then we could fully solidify all matchups, finish the rooftop fight (if its meant to fail), and introduce any loose plot threads still unaddressed.
So I could see 15, 30, 60, 30, 15 funny enough. Gives the arc more breathing room.
By the way, I don't really understand how Queen ends up coming from under rubble. He tries to shoot Hyogoro and company, Marco stops him, then tries to shoot him but dodges, then King cuts Marco's wing and every panel after this is about Marco focusing on King. Am I missing something? When does Queen go from his beast form to his human form all bruised and coming out of wherever he's coming out?
You'll be glad to know this YC-Level thing literally ONLY exists in the fan base. Every villain has a squad because it's pirates. But the fanbase gave them terms and made them power levels and ignore everything to the contrary. The only soft power scaling system is either bounties or enemy organization placing.
That was an unnamed club attack not Raime Hakke- and those attacks seriously fucked up both of them so they didn't dodge or properly tank the hits. (and it was him attacking multiple opponents at once and pretty much finishing them off.)
