- King: "Are you really going to try to become a 'king'?
- Zoro: "Of course ... I have a debt to honor to my captain and my best friend !!!"
I've seen people complaining about the fact that Zoro is calling Luffy his best friend and is not mentioning Kuina at all. We don't have the full context of it so I may interpret it wrong but actually I think some people miss the point of this line.
Zoro's words are an answer to King question if he's going try to become a "king". To me, it totally coincides with zoro's promise to luffy in baratie arc : "I will never loose again until I become the WSS". I think the debt zoro is talking about here is the one of not loosing a single fight/duel anymore on his path to become the strongest, not that he will become the WSS. Why, will you tell me ? Because he won't be the WSS after defeating King, it's just an obstacle on his way. He needs to master Enma and become a conqueror if he wants to defeat King, that's what he's talking about here, not being the WSS, hence the fact he is not mentioning Kuina.
What do you guys think ?
