One Piece Volume 92 is releasing on 4th March. And with new Volume comes a new SBS where we get to know a lot of inside details.
In the SBS of Vol.92 Oda has hinted at Zoro’s possible connection to Wano.
It was revealed in one of the answers Oda gave to one of the Questions.
Let’s see what the Question was:
Chapter 926, Page 94
D: In Ch. 909, was the carpenter boss that appeared inWano the same one that was introduced in the Volume 7 SBS, Minatoma-san? P.N. Yacchi
Oda: Yes he is!! Back then, he was fixing the broken door to the bar in Foosha Village. He was introduced as Carpenter Minatomo-san, exclaiming “Who did this!?”. And now, he somehow ended up in the New World in the closed bordered country of Wano!!
Isn’t that weird!? That’s right, they actually aren’t the same person! They have the same last name because they’re related by blood.
The fact of the matter is, a ship from Wano reached East Blue a few decades ago.
One of the descendants of someone on that ship is a person that everybody is familiar with…
This part might be featured later in the main story so I won’t mention any more than that.
It isn’t going to be a major plot line, it will just be a minor story.
So that was Oda’s answer to the Question.
Note the sentence, ‘One of the descendants of someone on that Ship is a person everyone is familiar with…’
Who is that person with whom we are so familiar with?? It’s Zoro, he is 21 years old and we don’t know his past.
When a child he was shown in Shimotsuki Village where the Dojo master Koushirou took him in and taught him
Besides this we don’t know anything about his past, his parents, or where is he actually from?
It has been many years now since we started making theories about Zoro’s connection to Wano and now even
Oda himself has hinted towards it.
It’s really going to be interesting if this ends up being true.
But the sentence Oda mentioned at the end ‘It isn’t going to be a major plot line, it will just be a minor story.’ has made me a little bit uneasy.
I mean Oda is saying that it won’t be a major plot in the story, so are we getting just tiny bits of flashbacks that’s all?
We won’t be getting a separate story like Sanji??
If it’s so, then it would be disappointing.
Anyway what do you guys think about it.
Let me know in the comments!!
There was another interesting question where a reader asked Oda to personify Zoro’s swords.
Chapter 925, Page 76
D: Hello Oda-sensei!! It’s my first time contributing to SBS!! Zoro is in possession of the three swords Wado Ichimonji, Sandai Kitetsu, and Shusui. If the power of these three took the form of people, what would they look like?
O: Got it.
Left: Wado Ichimonji
Middle: Sandai Kitetsu
Besides this one another request in the SBS was to draw Nami’s sketch at the age of 40 and 60.
Age 40: Come back again once you become an adult <3
Age 60: Me? I passed 40 a long time ago <3 Fufufu
A future where “something” happens…
Age 40: Hand over the money I tell you!!!
Age 60: Won’t you buy my magic pot?
