For me Oda clearly intended to open Wano's border (which is why Zunesha was there) during this Arc but something after Luffys awakening definitely happened behind the scenes.
Oda decided to suddenly rush it, don't if he grew bored, if it was the reaction to the whole Nika stuff which pushed Jump Staff to intervene in a arc that wasn't really popular even on its targeted public (japanese people). But something happened, hopefully nothing related to his health.
I don't get what Oda is doing with the minks. Zunesha already left earlier for no reason so their giant elephant Uber is gone already.
Neko and Inu are staying in Wano as I expected but since Carrot is being named to rule over Wano for some insane reason (at least the for the night half/shifts right?) , how are they gonna get back to Zou?
Carrot is not joining the SHs but shes gonna have to ask them to drop her back off at Zou? How are they even gonna get back up on Zou too? I can't even remember how the Sanji Nami half of the SHs got on there before, when they left to go there early? With Caesars help? Sanji sky walked them up?
What about all the other minks who came by too? They stay with Neko and Inu? Or they go back to Zou too?
i do think pluton will enter the scene during the final war as part of luff’s army. probably in contrast with Uranus, that may be the treasure of Maryjoa (indeed it is located in thd “sky”), while pluton in the abyss
Regardless of Stampede being canon or not, Coby has no feats that put him at Tobiroppo level. I dont think he grew that much to be able to defeat Boa. Also, he is just one of the marines going after Boa, there is definitely people stronger than him in that fleet and leading it.
