? Why make it seem like that can't happen at all before Laugh Tale and the final war? Laugh Tale isn't next and Shanks is going after Bartolomeo. There is still plenty of time for anything like this to happen. So no, logically I wouldn't have expected Shanks and Mihawk to team up only a few weeks after the Reverie if they aren't near each other.
Maybe actually wait until we see Mihawk and his intentions too? Lmao
Are you just that hard-headed or can't comprehend the logic?
