He kind of is, the flashback is from shortly after Oden had been exiled by Sukiyaki so he's yet to revitalize Kuri and be appointed the Daimyo of the region. Since Yasuie is already a Daimyo and in line to become Shogun at that, he is certainly in a position of authority over Oden who is still a teenager at this point. This scene is meant to highlight that Yasuie was one of the people that inspired a young Oden to get his act together which helped lead to his great accomplishments later and possibly that they had sibling bond similar to what their daughters now have with each other.
A Daimyo is a Lord that rules over a certain region but is subordinate to the Shogun who rules over the entire nation. In fairness to the translators the title has been brought up many times since the end of Zou and they did include a translators note back then explaining what the position was. Also I disagree with the notion that everything be translated, Admiral Akainu sounds a lot better than Admiral Red Dog imo.
He let himself get captured so that he could have this moment, it's not what I would've have done but he's seem to have accomplished his goal regardless.
He didn't really lose to Orochi, as he said he lost to Kaido..."but we failed to overcome the monster that is Kaido and Wano was razed to the ground"
So I think him calling out Orochi is still fair.
No it was said in this very chapter that Yasuei provided the allies that were captured with a new rendezvous point so they're still on board.
I'm not sure what the purpose tangent was but in the world of One Piece most nations are ruled by a royal family as is the World Government itself so I don't see the problem. Also it said future Shogun implying that Yasuei thinks he will become Shogun in the future...when he's an adult. Do you know what a Regent is?
This is a tragic misunderstanding of Zoro's character. He may be ruthless in battle but outside of it he certainly doesn't lack empathy like the Vinsmoke siblings. Part of the reason Bonney was dissing the Strawhats was because Zoro carried a man to the hospital despite the fact that he didn't even know the guy. His whole introduction with Rika was to show that Zoro is not a bad person despite his demeanor and reputation.
Ya I was worried about that. Once again we have a legendary bad ass who was treated like a child by his friends.
Really? I must be reading a different source then I try to read all those translators notes. I even read the section on the mystical beasts and legends three times over. Mainly because I thought it was cool.
As for akainu, 2 things.
1- that isnt fair. Akainu is what we know, to change it now obviously would sound weird, we are all used to akainu instead of red dog. BUT apply that same logic to luffy. Is he "straw hat" luffy or "migragraw" (close enough)
2- if that is bad, which I agree red dog isnt a cool name for someone of his stature, we are all free to call him by his name, sakazuki (close enough) it is fair to call admirals by their names.
My main point is it is a stupid plan and only an idiot would fall for it. I hope orochi is as stupid as yasu falls for it. I mean.... imagine if nathan hale, instead of his famous "I regret that I have but one life to give for my country" line instead, before the British executed him he said "lol, the American Revolution was just a joke, there is no revolution! Go back to life as normal!"
No one would fall for that.
As for my point you counter by saying "he told people in the prison the new meeting place" ok, but what about the people who arent in there yet? Was recruiting done forever? Did the sh alliance have every single person they want to help fight kiadou?
Recruiter "hey want to join out cause?"
Citizen "lol dude didnt you hear, yasu did that as a joke"
And most importantly, yasu or the sh crew for that matter didnt even find out how orochi knew about the plan. For all they know orochi could have a spy! And now yasu died for nothing, the spy will just report the new location. Seriously if yasu wants to throw away his life he even did that wrong.
Well I guess this is just arguing word play but orochi teamed up with kiadou, which means yasu lost to the kiadou orochi team. Obviously I didnt mean that literally, we dont know if they fought. However the fact that yasu was so willing to throw away his life means he probably doesnt have the fighting power orochi has. So he probably would of lost literally to him to.
But like I said, teaming up with a stronger ally is a legitimate way to win a war. If not you will have to tell britian and France that America and Russia won world war 2 not "the allies". Ya it is a very basic strategy, but it is effective, that is why it has been around so long.
Ya my rant was about the whole op world itself. Of course I know what that is....king tut had one... and not only was that not mentioned but it is not the point I was making. Just the fact they are trying to put an unproven child into office is illogical to it's very core. Who knows what kind of leader he will be in 10-15 years when he is ready to rule. I mean we can criticize naruto forever but at least they had the good sense to give kakishi the hokage job when naruto was still young. And naruto was actually ready for the job and most people knew what kind of guy he was. But here is 10 year old momo who is a....nice kid.... and has no other leadership traits....HE MUST RULE US!!!!
I mean... there is a difference between helping someone and getting worked up because of disrespect. If I saw someone get hit by a car would I call an ambulance or give them CPR? Ya sure. Would I get worked up and yell at people for laughing at the accident? No.
