You may know that there are some common theories about Kuina, which may seem plausible on the one hand, because they starts from something what highlights in the manga, but on the other hand they continues with making up outlandish scenario up to the final of One Piece. But guys, would Oda leave clues for us for so many years so we could write the whole story instead of him? But not only a trend for writing our own fiction is a problem. There are some delusions in that common interpretations of clues that Oda gave us. I even think that it may be Oda’s masterplan to mislead us and then get greater effect by destroying our expectations.
So the first thing I wanted to consider is one page from 589th chapter, which gave us theories about Kuina being in Revolutionary Army at the moment or a shogun in Wano. It’s a pretty big coincidence that we have Ivankov, who can change people’s gender, and Kuina, who can’t accept that she was born a girl, in the same place at the same time. This coincidence is so interesting that people turn blind eye to the dialog of Dragon and Iva and don’t see that Iva was too hurry to take care of a stranger girl.
But that’s not all; there is a thing that destroys the possibility of Kuina being taken on board that night. In case she was on the board, it should be the night when she won a 2001 fight with Zoro and died. And it’s not the same night. Look at the phase of the moon.
Also, there are too much attention on a moon in 5th chapter
Next thing I want to consider is a myth of Koshiro being a bad guy who killed his daughter.
– The first reason of this myth to exist is that some people rely on anime version of Zoro’s flashback, where Koshiro represented as a suspicious man, but it differs from manga. There is a whole episode about Zoro’s past against 7 pages about it in the manga, so they had enough timing to put non-canon scenes about Koshiro.
– Even if you rely only on manga, you can say that Koshiro has no reaction to Kuina’s death so people still can say that it makes him suspicious, but let me remind you that it’s a quick flashback which shows us only Zoro’s point of view and the main thing in this flashback is Kuina’s death. There’s no need to show Koshiro a lot, because the flashback should explain Zoro’s motivation in this situation.
-Some people rely only on Zoro’s flashback when talking about Koshiro and forget to check other scenes with him. And we have this one from chapter 440, and we can see in Koshiro’s inner monologue that he has a mind-set of a good man.
-Also, returning to 589th chapter, it’s an act of a kind man to help Rev Army with provision.
This scene may be interpreted in different ways depending on a translation. So somebody believes that Koshiro is involved in Rev Army. I personally prefer this translation; it precludes the possibility of Koshiro being a revolutionary.
Then you will ask: if the information given in this page of 589th chapter prevents the possibility of Kuina being taken on board of Rev Army’s ship and Koshiro being connected with Rev Army, why Oda focused our attention on Shimotsuki village? I believe that we initially don’t have the information that will allow us to see a full picture of what Oda is planning on this.
*Theory by Okita
It uses 3 swords style technique and it got lost 😀 I guess there’s no cure for those that use Santoryu! XD
Shiki ate the Fuwa Fuwa no Mi, a Paramecia type Devil Fruit which allows him to make surrounding non-living matter levitate once he has come in contact with it.Shiki states that once he makes something float it will stay that way until he himself undoes it or he loses consciousness. He has been shown to make several Marine vessels and even vast island areas float.
He seems to have mastered the use of this fruit, as he has shown a variety of skills which manipulates the surrounding non-living environment in complicated ways, even manipulating it from its simplest components, such as earth’s fragments and snow flakes being used to build up gigantic, elaborate structures that are then used to attack for a variety of purposes.
When attacking, Shiki uses the surrounding environment against his enemies, shaping earth or snow into giant lion heads and launching them towards his foes, or even making water float to drown his opponents in it. As stated, his powers are unable to be used on any living matter other than himself, meaning he cannot touch another person, animal, or plant and make them levitate.
He also possesses great skills as a swordsman and was able to kill a mountain of Marines before getting captured.
After the two swords became his new legs, Shiki is also capable of attacking from a distance with them, by sending slashes from his sword legs in a Rankyaku like fashion. These air-blades have a light-yellow/gold color-scheme, matching his epithet.
He also combines his sword skills with his Fuwa Fuwa no Mi, such as slashing open a body of water and then levitating it to drown his opponents. He fended off all the slashes from Zoro’s Nanajuni Pound Ho with great speed and reflexes, and later another attack from Zoro’s was countered in mid-air and he knocked Zoro back down to the ground with great force. He was also able to fight on par against Roger, and later, it took both Garp and Sengoku in their prime to capture him alive.
