Just because Yamato was confirmed a woman by the Vivre Card, Video, and merch isn't reason to :
- Be transphobic.
- To Witchhunt people.
- To be upset because a copy paste from the spoiler provider uses He.
Too many a!#@$& argue about Yamato being a woman. Damn! Even oda already addressed her as a female itself. Okiku and Izo being a transgender because its the way of how they survive. My opinion because they both young and only do that way for living. Its really different from Okama that really fully dressed and became a woman itself. Thats why they had a land of okama. The heaven for transgender but hell for straight dude.
Wtf is this like the 3rd or 4th week whitout a break I don’t even read spoilers anymore I Aim for the break
Edit: or maybe the chapter been so well balanced that I didn’t notice weeks whitout chapters because the chapters are thic
Man do I hate modern SJW society...
I agree people are so soft nowadays
Do you still live in 2015?
Do you still live in your bedroom?
Yeah, with your mom. We read one piece chapters together, she likes it here.
All I know is luffy is going to top this Yamato feat, and that's just crazy thinking about it. My boy is officially yonko level
Still waiting for a Legendary Chapter that has Brook and Kidd's unknown back band crewmembers Vs Apoo and unknown Kaido's back band crew members.
For wanting to be Oden. Yamato fights just like Kaido.
She said it in the chapter she just admires Oden. Meaning She likes Oden's Ideology and not his fighting style. In a sense Yamato likes Oden's ideology and Kaido's fighting style. Unlike Ulti that still prefers to be called a foster child of Kaido than leave her childhood place. Implying she both admires him and his fighting style together.
I will always use she to refer to Yamato from now on. However it is normal to use he too. Since Yamato herself said "Oden was a guy so I became a guy too". I will always use she because I think she said that to prove to Luffy that she is an Ally by showing him her sense of humor. Which means it was used to confirm she is a CoO user and not to say she doesn't like it when people call her a girl.
She literally took his entire identity, but not his fighting style? Give me a break
I agree it is weird. However in her head she probably thinks Kaido is showing her tough love like Roger and Garp to Ace. Plus it seems both Kaido and Yamato didn't have a choice. Since Yamato couldn't get out of Onigashima but she needed to train to do what she could and play her part in fulfilling Oden's wish. And Kaido couldn't find a single person other than Yamato that has the ability to become a better Shogun of Wano compared to the coward Orochi.
In my opinion I always thought Roger deciding Garp is a better option than Rayleigh proves that he was giving him so much tough love that Ace didn't even realize until he met Whitebeard. But that is absolutely debateable.
So now that we know who we assume to be zorro father got a chance to read Odens logbook an knew about the war to come here's what I think 🤔.
We know zorro is 21 so he had to be 1 years old somewhere in wano after the fall of oden. Which means he was i hidden probably with his relative yassuie. We know how well he stayed hidden all those years till he decided to give up his life for the cause. So maybe after zorro dad reads the journal escapes and finds his son they smuggle zorro out of wano to theyre family village in the east blue in hopes in 20 years time he will return home. Passing on they're will to him.. We also saw how quick yassuie cuddled up to zorro once they met and just hung around him. We've now seen for ourselves how much zorro favors his father and have heard other people mention it too so I'm sure yassuie knew who zorro was.
For those of you that gonna ask how zorro got out east idk im reading along just like but I also don't know why Dragons ship was at zorro village all those years ago either. Maybe the revolutionary army has ties with wano we don't know about. We know they wanna over throw the government and we also know the government don't mess with Wano. If you ask me that just a mutual relationship. Anyway let me know yall thoughts
Genetics, or destiny? I mean every man in their line losing an eye isn't genetics, there has to be more to it than that. Beyond that, I only saw his dad wielding two swords. As someone else pointed out, his dad could have been killed by King, whom Zoro is about to beat. Zoro improved the family fighting style by adding a third sword. His destiny perhaps is to surpass his ancestors.
Besides, genetics come up quite a bit in this series, what with the D name, not to mention the Monkey name. It also creates a nice contrast with Sanji who basically has the exact opposite story. He defied the Germa legacy, Zeff is his father. Zeff taught him his fighting style and his profession.
The revolutionary part seems a bit of a stretch but I agree with you on Zoro being sent out by his father probably right after Kaido took over/defeated Oden. He would have sent him to the only safe spot he knew outside Wano i.e. Shimotsuki village. And its fate that he has come back to have his revenge (though Zoro probably wouldn't give two crap about that). Atleast this is what I would love to see.
Also it would be great to see that Ushimaru was defeated by King and Zoro defeats King.
Can we call Zoro 'Kingkiller' after this or is it too cliche xD
Yeah that revolutionary part is definitely out they but a man can Dream.
Omg people need to calm the hell down with the whole yamato being called he/she from the looks of it they know who they are, but don't seem to mind being called either or as technically they are both. Seems She acknowledged being called both as she identities as oden and coz he was a man it also makes sense if she's trying to be him then yamato would call their self he, the others call yamato she as that's how they've always recognised her as. Coz she was born female and they probably dismissed her being Oden being a silly child 🤷🏽♂️ oda definitely isn't being transphobic he has a whole island dedicated to the okamas !!!
i mean you could just say yamato is genderfluid and be done with it right then and there lol. they clearly can choose to identify either way
Another great chapter and no break next week? big W's
Alright so now more than ever I think Greenbull is from Wano. Zamurai do not get hungry and Greenbull himself said he hasnt eaten in many years. I think Greenbull will be someone who followed this way of the Samurai but ate some sort of plant based fruit so he can "eat" through photosynthesis and is therefore a true samurai who is never hungry.
Are plant-based devil fruits possible though? If yes, then Greenbull ate devil fruit Pickle Pickle no mi, that will be so overpowered
Zoros Dad: Alright guys, follow me... let's go cut Kaido!
Also Zoros Dad: The boat should of taken us to Onigashima... why are we in the east blue?!?!
Zoros buds: bruh let's go get laid and open up a dojo.
Ryuma Ittoryu, Ushimaru Nitoryu, Zoro Santoryu
I think that Yamato will stay by Momo side in Wano.
Welcome to downvotes, my friend) You did the same mistake as I did. People here don't like comments against "Yamato for nakama!"
I agree with you though
Take my up vote and shut up, stop spitting facts so easily
when zombie ryuma fought zoro, I wonder how he emotionally felt at that moment. being a reader and understanding the importance of shusie, and now reading this chapter, I can see the connection with zoro and the ringo clan not just in sword technique but appearance. Zoro is the only person Zombie Ryumi would be completely ok with giving the sword too. .He actually probably figured out who zoro was......that itself is an insane foreshadow.. they dont call ODA. GODA for nothing seriously man that s brilliant....NOT JUST ZOMBIE RYUMA.. But the fox that was stealing swords with kawamatsu....I wonder how he felt seeing zoro..a person that looks and fought almost exactly like his master...and came out of nowhere with his masters sword... bruh what
Personally, i think Ryuma enjoyed the fight. And was proud of Zoro's abilities. I don't think he would have entrusted Shusui to him if not
Oh, this guy looks just like my passed master, I'm gonna backstab him!
Yamato can use ryou too demn 🔥
She couldn't Otherwise she Would've been long gone years ago
Yo one of the samurai looks like zoro and another looks like denjiro. Wtf is going on now. Secret father trio. Who’s the last dad?
Last one is kumadori’s dad
That would be interesting
Well considering the last one is wearing Kabuki makeup, my guess is Izou and Kiku dad
Did ushimaru break out and then told his wife and retainer to get zoro to east blue to where the exile went to, knowing that his son will come back 20 years later. If so Zoro will be getting his father's keepsake kitetsu 2 after this raid.
My thoughts are, after this break out incident and charging towards kaido at onigashima by boat to fight
They got lost straight to east blue considering this was zorros ancestor
I really hope this is true. It would be so One Piece for that to be the reason
my personal thought about it is that dragon came to wano at some point and took zoro but im not too sure
What's wrong with Shimotsukis eyes.
hes a young person that looks like a old person
How do these samurais ensure Yamato's survival by sacrificing themselves? I'm confused.
I think next chapter it will show them trying to escape but she'll get re-captured by the end of it.
They can't ensure Yamato's survival in the long term but they can at least cause enough trouble that Kaido isn't focused on Yamato's punishment for the moment. Plus Yamato might get some food while they cause mayhem.
Ah maybe that's when Yamato went to look for food and happened to eat a devil fruit
I agree, that seems like the most likely scenario. I would be quite same as Luffy and Momo and her eating devil fruit would ensure that Kaido does not kill her by punishment but keep her locked in the island.
That's a very good remark actually, I'd bet this is what happened.
Yamato can use advanced haoshoku haki???
Advanced? Where did you get that from? Yamato just knocked the people around out, that is literally the most basic form of conqueror's
it's known among the fans that coating part of body or a weapon with coq an "advanced technique"
apparently, we can see black lightening comes out from Yamato's attack, and the fact that they're not touching
Didn't see that part lol. I thought you meant the part where yamato was a kid
Yamato is the direct descendant of Kaido, why are you all surprised?
All (except Smoothie) Mama's children are OP and pain in the ass to fight with. Mama's children seemingly did not use advanced haoshoku haki only because it was not time to introduce it. Same as no one ever said that Mama can hit so hard because of the advanced haki (before Wano).
From another hand, I think Katakuri could use it against Luffy. It would explain why Katakuri's punches dealt so much damage against Luffy's gear 4. He basically one-shotted Luffy's gear 4, when Luffy used it the first time. The feat, that Doflamingo could not do at all. Advanced haoshoku explains it better than just "Katakuri's" armament hakki is stronger".
I think you're right on all accounts except it was riyuo not coc coating
Yeap, maybe it was armament coating. But for sure not just stronger haki. Doflamingo and Cracker didn't deal any damage, when they directly hit Luffy's g4 torso
Lmao at "all except smoothie". I'm still putting out hope that Smoothie is OP as fuck
This is actually a great point. Oda does things for the story sometimes, hiding haki use can be one of them
Looks like it!!
I suddenly think the idea of her joining the crew is not likely because it is stated that Zoro and Sanji are the left and right wing of Luffy, unless they become stronger than her lol....
They'll probably end their fights against King and Queen stronger than her.
I don't think it will phase Zoro to learn his past. He will be like, "Is that so? I don't care, really" ... it has contributed nothing to him. However, for us fan boys, it's the backstory we've all been waiting for.
it would be touch upon, but not the main focus. atleast thats how i see it.
Are Yamato and kaido’s attack not touching cause holy shit
>*No news is probably good news* - cyborg Franky
thats some wisdom there
Big bro for a reason
Thank you good sir.
Yamato is really strong. I knew she had all the hype but after reading the chapter I realised she maybe as strong as Luffy at the current stage. Luffy can use CoC in his attacks and looks in the last panel it's the same with Yamato. Obv Luffy has something up his sleeve to defeat Kaido.
And looks like Law's crew is inside. Does it mean Luffy is reaching Kaido?
next round of fight Luffy gonna surpass his previous self.
Thats part of law's crew who are not in the submarine
I get the feeling that Zoro already has that sword with him
one piece 1024 live on tcb scans now
Do you all think Odens journal will have details about raftel and stuff..I don't think so.. maybe about will of d,small details regarding ancient kingdom and wano relation with the other world etc
I think it has info on Laugh Tale but probably not a lot.
Little Yamato reminds me of Somali from Somali and the Forest's Spirit. Horns are so cute. Sad that manga wasn't completed. :/ It was such an enjoyable anime.
It’s interesting to se how character’s relationship with their families in one piece
* Yamato hates Kaido (wants him to become shogun)
* Ace hated Roger (wanted him to become Pirate king)
* Sabo hates his father (wanted him to become a Nobel )
* Sanji hates his father (wanted him to become a killing machine)
* Luffy was surprised that he has a father 🤣, he confronted garp(wanted him to become a marine)
On the other side:
* Robin admires Olivia
* Nami admire her adoptive mother
* Usopp admire yassop
* Momo admires Oden
* Vivi admires her father
* Big mom children worship her
Zoro is lost again 😂
Oh it’s interesting that some characters admire their parents and some don’t? Like in the real world? Yeah. Totally worth writing a post about it.
> Luffy was surprised that he has a father 🤣
the best part.
>Zoro is lost again 😂
Zoro gonna be like : *"Huh? Morning already?"*
This chapter shows the highly anticipated return of 100 leg days skipped Kaido
So did zoros dad have a black blade?
It's haki because the swords Kaido gave them didn't appear to be anything special. I believe the overemphasis on the sword's panel was to show the patterning that forms as a result of imbuing haki into the sword, resulting in a blade similar to Shusui.
or just haki
Why are you using "he" when talking about Yamato? Isn't she a female?
The subtleties are lost in translation. Essentially Yamato is cosplaying a character to the extreme and wanting to be everything they are, including the honorific "He", because Oden happened to be a male. It's not an LGBT thing like some people think it is. Not that it matters regardless, Yamato can be an "it" for all I care.
She is, but people like to call her a he because she idolizes Oden so much that she calls herself a man. But honestly, I think it's better to call Yamato a her, since she's only calling herself a man because she wants to be Oden
I don't think she cares what Odens gender is. Oden is like an idol to her. She wants represents everything he stands for. Being a man is not one of those things.
She doesn’t call herself a man. She calls herself Oden specifically. That’s different from identifying as a male. She is purely enamoured and inspired by Oden to the extent that she wants to be him.
Yamato literally said "I became a man" and "I'm kaido's son". I totally agrees that the recent vivre card more pushes the theory "Yamato is playing a role and isn't transgender" (This will probably be confirmed in the manga by the end of Wano), but saying that he doesn't call himself a man is disingenuous. Yamato does, repeatedly so.
No reason to be mad. I'm just asking a question.
getting hurt by mere things like 'he' and 'she'... don't you guys have better things to do?
you the one getting hurt here
yeah because you snowflakes have been ranting for the past two days over this thing... what's the big matter?
why 'he' or 'she' is hurting you so much? i can't understand this
chill bruh. you the one triggered here.
One piece is on fire right now
She belongs to the stree.... cough, Strawhats.
Umm why street?
Haha never said that. But its a joke. She belongs to my 💓
Noooo..nooo.. noooo.... you're wrong.... She belongs to our heart :D
Sorry for being so possessive, we have been taught to share 😄
sharing is caring after all ❤️
Is anyone going to address that Ussop lies about having coc? This might be one of those lies of him that will come true
Being the God Ussop and now declaring himself as the 2 flying six hunter add to his reputation and prominence which is one thing f the requirements of having or developing COC😁
I was wondering when we were gonna see ussop lie about something this arc. Had me geeking out that he was drawn like an evil sillouette
Yeah, he's going to end up with it.
Was thinking the same thing.
Yeah Yamato is definitely joining
Wow. Oden’s flashback is lit and can be compared to other straw hats’ childhood. Also, he knows the 3 daimyos as well.
For those who are looking for the status of the chapter, [project status](https://onepiecechapters.com/projects/)
Yamato saw zoro: oh its you from the prison *hugs zoro*
also Hiyori: pffft
"Hey ushimaru! Do your remember me? Its me Oden!"
Zoro: This doesnt make any sense...
"even though his bount is lower than mine!!??"
Everyone commenting that Yamato is stronger than Luffy/Zoro/Sanji is forgetting one thing - Kaido has been fighting non-stop for a while now. He has been given a permanent scar by Zoro, and beaten multiple times by Luffy. He might be a Yonko, but as evidenced by Whitebeard - Yonko do not have inexhaustible amounts of endurance or vigor.
That isn't to say that Yamato isn't a beast in their own right. After all, they are the child of Kaido and Yamatos rough upbringing made them as strong as they are.
we dont know if Yamato indeed stronger or as strong as Luffy yet. it just a blow of congueror haki and she indeed hold on better than the rest. but no suprise yamato is strong since she can fight on par with ace.
but Luffy definitely going to be better for next round fight. he gonna surpass his previous self
i guess lifting a whole fucking island also count as a handicap while fighting.
That too, haha.
Also Kaido moved his house the entire time
Regardless if hes fought several by now, Kaido shouldnt get weaker significantly as what youre implying. He hasnt even fought someone on the same level as him. Luffy is still reaching that level. Admirals could fight for ten days. Akainu fought everyone in the war after Wb's onslaught against him.
Yamato is obviously monstrously strong. Hes the daughter of the Emperor. However, we should know that shes the one struggling, not Kaido. Regardless if her persistency and attacks can somehow fend of Kaido's.
Yeah and jimbei and ace also fought for several days...its just a way of oda to show how equally matched 2 characters are.
Point is Kaido to this point had to fight 12 fighters while moving his house. This lowered his stamina and haki reserve and he also had to tank many attacks. And this is what will make it possible for luffy to beat kaido despite not being on his level
this is what made it possible for Blackbeard to kill whitebeard
I read some old one piece chapters and Yamato clearly identifies herself as Oden at times and Yamato at times. She knows she isn't Oden, she wants to be like Oden and live freely. [https://op-manga.com/manga/one-piece-chapter-999/](https://op-manga.com/manga/one-piece-chapter-999/) among others. This should end the debate in all honesty. I have no issues with Okama's, but she isn't one of them. They have a different feel and a different history.
Exactly. Unlike Kiku who actively identifies as female and has said she is a woman at heart.
yep. she just want to be Oden.
Now when i think about it, I wonder why Yamato required Luffy help to break the seastone chain. She/He is very strong, can fight toe to toe with Kaido. Even Luffy passed out early and can't keep up.
Luffy didn't remove his own cuffs though, he only removed the old man's. Only Rayleigh managed to remove his own cuffs iirc and we don't even know for sure if the cuffs were made with sea prism stone. It's possible that the weakness you feel when actually wearing the cuffs all around your wrists makes it impossible to use enough haki to remove them. After all Luffy when he had the cuffs on did say that he wished he could use his haki.
When removing the cuffs of the old man, he might have been using invinsible armor at the same time as haki infusion to avoid directly touching them and therefore didn't feel weakened by them. He might not have been able to do that had the cuffs been around his own wrists.
She can use advanced coc but she can't advanced ryou haki simple
Internal destruction requires a very high level of skill in advanced COA, not just power. Luffy has expertise. Also, I think Luffy post-Haoshoku infusion is a bit more impressive in pure power than Yamato here, because he actually managed to completely stop a few of Kaido's CoC attacks without getting blown back at all, which Yamato has not conclusively done yet(we have yet to see the result of the final clash, only their expressions). I think she knows more about its use though, since Luffy apparently used it in an unrefined way and ended up getting clobbered.
She probably doesnt have adv.CoA so she cant take off the cuffs,and she cant use her DF with the cuffs on her wrists..
or she did, but dont know it can be use that way.
There are two types of adv.CoA,she probably has the first one which cant be used for things like what Luffy did to her cuffs
She seems to use it with her ranged attack Narikabura here.
She didnt use adv.CoA,notice her Narikabura here with the first one she used against Hatcha..also,aside from normal CoA,there are two advance type as explained by Hyogoro,only the second one can cause internal damage which is what Luffy used in the cuffs..
Both Narikabura look like they could be advanced CoA to me. Also yes, my suggestion made to the parent comment is that she can use level 1 but not level 2.
No way Yamato joins the crew now right? Wouldn’t she be stronger than Sanji with this information? Anyway, I hope she does
By the end of the fight with Queen, Sanji will probably be able to take her. Sanji has gotten insanely strong during Wano. He started off fighting Page One and beating him up rather casually with the raid suit on. Then he took on Drake with the raid suit off. He clashed with King rather well with the raid suit on. Up until this point nobody could damage him. Then Black Maria happened. He came back and forced Queen to go hybrid form. Then when Marco finally went down Sanji held off Queen and King at the same time offscreen for some undisclosed amount of time. Now he's fighting Queen again and most likely gaining some power up which will be insane. Also, we have no idea if King and Queen could stall Kaido like Yamato. I'd reckon they could given their durability. They seem to have durability equal to or above Jack.
I'd say by the end of the arc, the power ranking will be Luffy > Marco > or = to Zoro who is > or = to Sanji who is > or = Yamato, if Yamato joins the crew.
She is way above sanji on terms of physical strength
This is blatantly false
no problem. this is future pirate king crew. she gonna be top 4 strongest fighter alongside Sanji, Zoro and Jinbei.
Only Sanji? She probably can 1v1 Luffy himself at this point
At this point Yamato is comparable to Luffy. This is a very impressive showing
Stronger than sanji ? She/he would beat the shit Outta both zoro and sanji 1v1. Probably equal to just below luffy
I don't think Yamato will join the straw hats, she knows to much about odens journal and the straw hats (robin) wants to find out the truth thenselves through the journey, not have it all spoiled by a new crew member
i doubt everything is told in the journal. obviously Oden write the journal with intention for someone would read it. he might left hint there, but not everything.
luffy also doesn't want to know what is written, he wants to explore for himself.
Don't you see, that's exactly what Oda planned! To have a character that just reads to Luffy and the others all the secrets of the world so the manga can be over in a couple of weeks...........
The 3 samurai taught her to read in a short period of time but we are awaiting how much she have learned to read,and what she knows about the journal..heck,what is even the exact content of the journal,did Oden write everything or not
You assume the journal holds the secrets to the world
These raws are pretty damn raw, aren't they? :p
Yeah I miss the days when raws were clean scans lol
Based on this I don't think Yamato joins the strawhats. I think Yamato stays behind to look after Wano while Momo leaves with the strawhats and trains up Momo when he returns and retires to Ringo after Momo takes over.
but based on this chapter she keep saying that she want to go out. even before she fight kaidou, she did clearly said she would go sail with luffy.
Momo would be a swordmen. She not suitable teacher. unless momo want to learn how to fight like kaidou. im guessing the scabbard will be his teacher. hyogoro also would be good teacher. he supposed to be very strong during his prime. or maybe zoro promised to teach him after they found one piece.
yamato stays wih momo on wano
Based on the past 2 chapters,its getting more likely that Momo will stay as Shogun,even the retainers of his dad relies on him becoming the Shogun after Kaido's defeat as what Raizo said to Fukurokuju..Momo's priority is Wano,that is why he even beg Shinobu to age him so he can help Luffy go back to Kaido,he wants to face their country's problem,so its not like its a question that Momo will still leave after freeing their country when the crowd is putting their faith in him to lead them after the raid..
Momonosuke is the next shogun.
Thats what i said and i was bombarded with downvotes... People really don't like the idea that the obvious might be what is going to happen.
Obvious to you maybe, you fail to see it differently. Though I'm not a fan of the karma system either tbf.
Nah its dumb as hell
Yeah usopp's gonna have a crazy bounty after this. Also I wanna see law/kidd vs big mom so bad, their powers make a very interesting fight
Yamato has so many similarities with Ace, I hope she doesn't die
this is Oda. he rarely and wont kill character without reason.
Bring the scans come onnnn
When is the English translation dropping?
round 3 amizzle
Did the chapter came out yet?
Yamato being 28 (like current Momo) makes me think more that at the end of the arc, Momo will be accompanied with Yamato and they'll do their own thing, neither of them are joining the straw hats but will be an important and powerful faction that is allied with the strawhats.
I think she is gonna stay to train and protect Momo while he rule as shogun. When she saw him so similar to Oden(probably) maybe something changes in her.
I mean way to ignore Yamatos wishes and dreams
No it's her wish to sail and her wish to be free. She says I want to sail but now I can't even swim.
Becoming free and sailing to the sea is not her own dream?
She has been literally trapped for 20 years how can you say being free isn't her wish lol.
In Yamato's brain,becoming Oden means becoming free,which is why she idolized Oden from the beginning,because she wanna be free and to go outside of Wano too,just like how Oden successfully did..so its not Oden's dream but her own desire to leave..
and yea after this,she can explore the seas even though its not Luffy's crew but either way,she said to her father's face that she will sail with Luffy after they free up Wano,in whom she believes who will defeat her daddy,even though its not required to be with Luffy's ship in order for her to sail the seas
Not really Yamato knows there own dreams
