One of Oda’s successes is creating small details to predict an ending that will appear in his story. Oda once shared that Wano will have a sad ending, which rarely happens before, characters rarely disappear, quite funny deaths happen that readers often joke that “in One Piece can only die by falling down the stairs.”
Heartbreaking deaths like this will appear in Wano
But even in the first parts of Wano, Oda seems to have prepared for a sad ending. Starting with the image of the 9 tombstones of Jiu Hong Bao, the death on the cauldron, and Oden’s haunting smile, all gradually bring the reader to the reality that Wano will have major clashes and casualties are unlikely. avoidable. Then Oda let Basil Hawkins, a Supernova with fortune telling, cast a hexagram that “there will be someone with only 1% alive to leave Wano”. Then it is the owner of this fortune-telling who is also in danger of the fortune-telling he created.
The next surprise was the appearance of Big Mom, another Yonko appeared in Wano, she used the excuse to take revenge on the Straw Hats but was actually a plot for her title of Pirate King. we desire. An alliance that has never been seen in history between the two Yonko, Kaido and Big Mom, has been established, in the words of the naval hero Garp, which is really worrying and has great consequences.
In the past One Piece chapter 1037, the Five Elders, the five mysterious old men of the world government, once again mentioned that casualties were inevitable. Specifically, one character in this group said: “It’s time to do something… Nico Robin should have been arrested by now. With Kaido and Big Mom fighting, it wouldn’t be unusual if someone died in that battle…!! Those guys should be wiped out.”
So with all of the above events, really Oda prepared for a sad, rather tragic ending for Wano. The stronger the enemy, the greater the cost of victory, which is a familiar motif in action manga. Luffy and his alliance will face off against 2 Yonko and a powerful Beast Pirates, the children of Big Mom have not yet acted and there are other forces such as the world government, CP0 or the others. The other Four Emperors can join the battle.
For many readers, the fact that One Piece is a humorous manga that combines eye-catching action is so familiar, it will be a little uncomfortable if we have to witness the deaths and sacrifices of the sides in the battle. this Wano melee. However, this was necessary for an arc that Oda once claimed was the largest in One Piece, a battle unprecedented in history. The bigger the battle, the more death will come, that’s logical, isn’t it? What do you think about the ending of the Wano arc, please leave your comments!
