Oh wahoo a flashback!!!
Ok so I was wrong about the smile. It turns out orochi tricked the towns people into eating smile and none of them became df users.
So originally my problem with this was 1- that would make them former kiadou crew members, which makes no sense because yasu loves them and
2- they are old and weak.
Well clearly 1 was wrong, they qrent kiadou crew members they were poor people orochi volunteered to be experimented on. BUT..... even if I was wrong before. This is still insane. So what happens if the town produces 50 smile users and 450 losers? That is an army of 50 smile users who are now very angry at the shogun for tricking them. Orochi would have to put them all down. It is unlikely they will all work for him. Right? Isnt that the samurai way?
AND 2- i was wrong about the smile turning them old and sick, but that doesnt change the fact most of them are old and sick..... why is orochi trying to make an army of old sick smile users?
Was this all just an experiment? If kiadou wasnt trying to add these people to his army I get it, CC just wanted to see what would happen when people eat smile. BUT if this was to increase kiadou's army it is a little stupid.
I am really liking what oda is doing with smile. At first when I heard "artificial df" I was a little nervous.... not only are there a ton of zoan still left to be introduced (like I said, get more specific, there are 3 different types of elephant 5 types of rhino) but minks are also now a thing.....between minks and Fishman there are entire spices of people walking around in a zoan human/hybrid form.... But now I am starting to like it. The power up from these fruit is very very small, and the risks are high. So in other words these fruit are almost a non factor as far as the story goes, but they are a good plot point.
This is much better then alabasta, where the rebels needed "weapons" I mean.... are you guys lazy? Go pick up some iron sand, smelt it. This isnt freaking difficult. Or use your current weapons to steal from pirates.... crocodile kills pirates all the time to keep up his hero of alabasta image, he doesnt take their weapons, pick those up. BUT smile are a lot better then just saying DD sells "weapons" to kiadou. Oh.....also..... I guess since kiadou owns wano it would be weird if he needed any weapons from anyone.
But clearly kiadou doesnt know that smile was actually invented in wano and only wano craftsmen can grow perfect smile.
Wait! Why didnt dd build his smile factory in wano? Everyone knows growing trees was invented in wano and only wano tree growers can grow trees! Screw the dwarfs, samurai should of been growing smile....
Also I still have a few questions left about smile. 1st- do they transfer like df? This may be why orochi volunteered old sick people, maybe if someone becomes a smile user, then kiadou's men can eat that person (like bm ate her mother) and they become a smile user!! My problem with that idea is 1- I doubt that is how smile work, and 2- I am still not convinced that is how bm got her df powers.
2nd- soooooooo can you only have one? Are smile the same as df in that respect? I understand we dont see any hybrid zebra tigers because there is only a 10% chance to get smile powers, so a person may have to eat up to 20 smile just to get 2 different powers and I am sure these thing arnt that cheep. BUT maybe they are different? (Probably can only have one)
Biggybacking off that, even if a person can only have one, can he eat smile untill he gets powers? Like can all those towns people keep eating smile until they get powers? Or are they limited to one try even if it fails?
Finally- VP, we were told the df momo ate was VP's artificial df. Are we going to forget that? VP's df seems to be perfect. Well.... it is possible the df doesnt allow free transformation and it randomly transforms the user. BUT for now I am just going to write that off as momo being a dumb kid and oda trying to have "funny" scenes.... to be fair even kaku was a little awkward with his zoan when he first got it. So assuming that isnt a problem. This means VP is capable of making perfect artificial df that work in every way the same as a normal zoan. It is even likely there is a 100% chance and not a 10% (or momo is very lucky)
Now it must be said, it is possible that CC was lying. CC told more lies then truths to his men, so it is possible that was a normal df and VP had nothing to do with it..... not sure why cc would lie about that.... but maybe he has a problem, I meet dudes who were complusvie liars.
Well that is all I have to say on smile. Common sense makes me want to answer those questions no yes no and "shut up VP can give lasers to kuma clones the wg doesnt need artificial zoan"
