Finally, the author of One Piece has revealed to fans the true origin of Roronoa Zoro. Let’s see what it is with MGN.vn.
Ever since the true identity of ‘third brother’ Sanji was revealed to One Piece fans, countless questions about Zoro’s background have begun to arise. Since then, many fan theories have suggested that Zoro will have a blood relationship with Shimotsuki Ushimaru of Wano Nation. But is that true? Let’s take a look at the most recent sharing of author Oda with MGN.vn about the background of Zoro to know who the real ‘green moss head’ is.
Specifically, in the latest SBS – SBS No. 105- by author Oda, he officially shared with fans about his relatives and related characters. Zoro- to the mate of the Straw Hat Pirates. According to what the author Oda shared, 55 years before what happened in One Piece, there were 25 people from the kingdom of Wano sailing to sea. Among those 25 people, there was a person named Shimotsuki Kozaburo, he was the one who forged the Enma to give to Oden.
Three years after setting sail (that is, 52 years before the events in One Piece took place), 25 swordsmen from Wano saved a village from an attack by a band of bandits in the South China Sea. And 10 out of 25 people decided to settle in this village. That was the village of Shimotsuki, where Zoro lived.
And among the 10 people who stayed, there was a female samurai named Shimotsuki Furiko. She married a village swordsman named Roronoa Pinzoro. These two people are Zoro’s grandfather and grandmother. The two married and gave birth to a son named Roronoa Arashi (father of ). Zoro). Later in life, Arashi married Tera (Zoro’s mother). And the son of Arashi and Tera is Zoro ‘green moss head’. However, since Zoro was young, Arashi died in battle and Tera also died due to illness.
On the other hand, of the 10 people who stayed in Shimotsuki village, there was also Shimotsuki Kouzaburou who stayed. This samurai married an ordinary village girl and gave birth to Shimotsuki Koushirou (Zoro’s sword teacher). Koushirou then marries someone not revealed by Oda. The two then give birth to Kuina. And as we know, that little girl passed away in an accident.
Besides all the above information, Oda also revealed more to fans about Zoro and Shimotsuki Ushimaru’s relationship (who is rumored to be the father of Zoro). Zoro). Specifically, Ushimaru is Furiko’s younger brother (Zoro’s paternal grandmother). Oda also confirmed that Ushimaru is related by blood to the ‘sword holy’ Ryuma. From this, we can infer that Zoro and both Ushimaru are blood related to Ryuma. This is something that even Zoro doesn’t know.
