You there! and @Pot Goblin
i read that part of the manga..
this part makes me realize how much i left out coz i didn't give enough attention to these moments while binge watching this series.
Sanji is generally a kind person true when it comes to having mercy towards hungry and women but irrc Zoro had this whole showdown on the Clouds with Wiper, Ordeal dudes, A giant Snake, the Previous ruler of Skypia
I think Zoro had more time with wiper altogether compared to sanji who had to deal with Luffy, ussop, the Ball ordeal guy whk had a twin and Rescuing nami.
So Zoro did get time to observe and understand Wiper's actions and actions of his people.
this moment does make me respect Zoro alot more and Wiper too...but it takes nothing from sanji who's oblivious about Wiper
