KAIDO didn't show awakening, and that's not how oda operate creditless sanji tard , We had against Doffy the bird cage and ppl were afraid , we had that ship and Hody and ppl were scared whilst we have now Onigashima and Kaido and no one scared they don't even know what's happening
Luffy vs. Kaido is basically done... Though I think Kaido is still up for an extra drama in the Flower Capital but in bad shape... Someone will literally end him there, maybe the CP0 guy? Capture is not an option since he can easily escape...
By the way, is Higurashi a member of Rocks Pirates?
Maybe Oda is showing that Luffy is the Acala Wisdom King because he drew parallels with Fudoo Myou and Gear 4th. But we haven't even seen Rox's face yet. We've only gotten a glimpse of Kaidou's flashback.
