The One Piece 909 chapter discussion! I expected reverie to be a bunch of info drops, since this is in fact the invisible force that's moved the world throughout the series, but oda is seriously outdoing himself chapter by chapter. Good god there's so much to talk about. At this point, I don't think anyone will really give a damn if kyros just mysteriously has his leg back. Oda's notorious for this goof, and he made the blunder this chapter yet again. This chapter highlights that there is some sort of hierarchy within the celestial dragons..... But I specifically mean a hierarchy within the family names of the original 20 kings. With all the romanization issues that have been going on lately, I decided to just trust the folks that actually know how to translate the katakana. Life-changing stuff. Last chapter, the characters used in the description of the gorosei translates to: "The world's most powerful individuals: the tenryubito who have the most power". It's always made sense to me that the gorosei would be celestial dragons themselves, given the sheer scope of their power and responsibility within the holy land. However this would mean that they belong to one of these original 20 names, and would make sense why oda still hasn't given us their names after all this time. Mjosgard appeared to exert some form of authority over charloss, and roswald doesn't seem too keen on getting payback necessarily. It will be interesting to see how far exactly mjosgard's influence reaches, and it's quite ironic that the riku family and tontatta find themselves under the protection of a donquixote. It's probably blatantly obvious that fujitora wanted to talk to cobra and riku about luffy, and gain their support for the abolishment of the shichibukai system. It's over now, since we see them at the table when the reverie starts, but I wonder what else issho may have said about luffy. Bonney just keeps getting more interesting. It was revealed that kuma was the former king of the sorbet kingdom, and bonney is initially introduced to us this chapter as "Dowager connie". Dowager is a term for a widow......Making her potential connection to kuma even more......Interesting. Clearly the sorbet kingdom is a real thing, otherwise bonney masquerading as the queen wouldn't have worked for her to get in the reverie at all. But is it really a facade? Is that bonney's actual age, and she really is the queen but just uses her devil fruit for the tsunade effect? Is she truly dowager connie, and "Jewelry bonney" was a name she came up with for herself as she went on a mission to rescue her husband that she disguises as a pirate career? - speaking of, kuma's history continues to get more interesting as well. Sabo described the guy as a gentle giant, and we can certainly see that now that we knew who he truly was deep down, but what got him called a "Tyrant" in the first place? Someone even described him as being the "Cruelest pirate on the seas" at some point. When did he became a pirate with a bounty? How/when did his time in the revolutionaries even play into this at all? Sabo seems to imply that his move to the world government wasn't something that was prompted by dragon or the revos. So then, what made him choose to undergo the pacifista project? And through all this, he's still a current shichibukai! Typical oda, giving us answers that only make us ask even more questions! Another interesting use of katakana: im's name is spelled with the katakana for "Adam" and "Eve". I think you guys were right, and we might have another potential kaguya on our hands. Whoever this guy/gal/genderfluid being is, they truly hold the reigns of the world and have potentially since joy boy's time. For even the gorosei to hold this im character in such high regard, they must have some power/ability, or some kind of accomplishment that gives them the right to be king of it all. People have already forgotten this, but when sakazuki was yelling at the gorosei about how the doflamingo situation was handled, it was stated that the orders came from "Higher up". Everyone thought wait, "Higher up" than the gorosei? All makes so much sense now. I wonder just what else we'll find out im was secretly responsible for. Finally, the pictures on the floor. This is a soft confirmation that the other bounty poster that im was holding was blackbeard's. It makes sense too now, considering that if im truly is the celestial dragon of all celestial dragons, then luffy and blackbeard's rise to legendary status as members of the d. Clan is certainly keeping im up at night. Makes me wonder how they feels about dragon, but I get the feeling that might be coming (speaking of where is dragon?). Again, with im being who they are, of course he knows the mermaid princess is poseidon. Makes me wonder if the move to mariejois 800 years ago was also a means to avoid the potential destructive power of poseidon and pluton should they be harnessed again. Speaking of, things aren't looking good for alabasta. We knew cobra was in the crosshairs as soon we saw him on the way to the reverie wondering what his ancestor saw that repulsed him so. We knew he had intentions to get to the bottom of it, and the gorosei confirmed that they definitely had something to hide this chapter. But why also then the interest in vivi? Is im truly willing to erase one of the original 20 families from history, or is there something else to it? Can't wait! Edit: luffy and blackbeard's posters weren't "Torn". They were cut, with a rather nice degree of precision. So this im characater is somewhat proficient with a blade.

Could Shanks Be World Government's Ultimate Spy?

Now I barely read or write one piece "Theories" because lets be real, majority of the times they turn out to be straight up wrong, but this time I really feel like its possible due to context provided to use through out the one piece manga. Above all else, this panel by far caught me off guard, and I was like "Whoa, what in the hell just happened??!!!"

I was just thinking why are "Pirate Hating" World Government allowing one of, if not the most, notorious Pirates in the World inside the place treated as a sacred temple of World Government. Why is it that Gorosei are not reacting more abruptly, why aren't they in a mode of turbulence, how can Shanks just walk in?

Well after initial shock, things kinda started getting in place. First thing that I thought about was this dialogue from Sengoku when Shanks showed up at Marine Ford to "Stop the war"



Why is it that Sengoku who should be proud of Navy's victory and used Whitebeard's and Ace's bodies are victory trophies just give in to Shanks' demands? Now a lot of Yonkou fans obviously have their own interpretation of it "Oh Sengoku was scared of Shanks so he just let him do it" but even when I was done watching Marine Ford (When I was a casual fans), I was thinking Marines just annihilated Whitebeard Pirates and all their top dogs are still fine so it definitely not the fear of Shanks that is stopping them. But I didn't think much then, I just reached the conclusion that Sengoku simply respects Shanks' diplomatic and peaceful nature despite being a Pirate. But after the latest chapter, I feel (and I could obviously be completely wrong), is that it is partly true that yes Navy as well as world government does respect Shanks' philosophy of peace, but mainly because Shanks is working with or for the World Government.



But why is someone who prides his Freedom work for World Government?

Well to answer that question, I will first talk about the fact that my perspective on World Government has changed after the latest chapter. I used to think, while the Marines, just like Pirates have both good and evil, World Government in itself is to its very core EVIL and it was mostly because of what we knew about Celestial Dragons. But then we saw this.

It really speaks to the uniqueness of One Piece as no one side is try evil or good, its not Black and Whitebeard but rather Shades of Grey in all factions in OP World. There are good pirates like Luffy and there are evil pirates like Doflamingo, there are good Marines like Fujitora and there are evil Marines like Akainu (Akainu isn't really that evil tbh, I can make a big ass post about him making him low key look like a saint and major lee hung would appreciate it, but just bare with me here, its pretty late and I needed a example) and there are Good Celestials like Mjosgard and there are bad Celestials like well every other Celestial we saw on panel.

Anyways I went on a bit of a tangent tangent there, the point I was trying to make is that World Government is not all evil, but that still doesn't explain why Shanks would ally with them. Well if go one step further and look at it from real life perspective, there has been through out history some supposed renegade organization, from the top of my head say "Black Panther" back in 80s, who have arguably done more good than bad, while there have been corrupt governments, Government officials are still generally looked at the ones responsible for maintaining Peace and Protecting Citizens.

Shanks to me comes off as a Man, wanting Ultimate Peace and someone who hates unnecessary blood shed. That is why he took all the insults from Higuma (Well besides the fact that he wasn't worth killing), only to get one of his soldiers killed when it was absolutely necessary. That is why despite it not being his business, he took the trouble of going to Whitebeard's ship and warned him about Blackbeard and pleaded him to stop Ace.

I think Shanks has allied government so that he could warn them in the case of turbulence from the pirate, being that he himself is the one and has inside knowledge. In return I think World Government sort of treats him like they treat Warlords and let him do his thing without bothering him much as they know he is not someone who will go around killing or looting innocents.

Now I am not saying Shanks is definitely working under World Government like Mihawk is (Who has his own reasons not as noble as Shanks of course), he could just be working with them as an equal.

Well damn I typed a lot and most it it could be nonsense you but if you have gotten this far thanks l
