Something that popped into my head with Shanks' appearance is that if/when Luffy's crew meets Shanks' crew do you think Zoro would ask to challenge Shanks to a duel? I get that Zoro's character isn't exactly like how he used to be when he was always in a mindset to challenge strong swordsmen like Mihawk regardless of outcome, but I still wonder about it. He has to be aware that Shanks is one of the greatest swordsman in the world and he might have heard about him more given all the time he spent with Mihawk during the timeskip. If Zoro is aware that Shanks is a great swordsman I just wonder if he would want to challenge him to see the difference between them or even compare him to Mihawk. Probably not but I thought it was an interesting thought.

definately, since he considers Shanks, as Mihawks rival (works the other way around as well, since they seem pretty close to one another),a stepping stone to overcome, and he perhaps knows that Shanks is someone, who is extremely proficient with CoC, while Mihawk propably has the better CoA (since black sword, which we have yet to see with Shanks)!

Also Shanks will be the one to signifiantly improve Zoros CoC, i think in that fight Zoro will become truly frightening with it, getting a skill to entirely disrupt someone elses haki ability, mayhaps through fear itself, like he did with Monet, just for powerful opponents as well then.

No he would not, because of Shanks history with Luffy.

Also Luffy is the one who wants to surpass Shanks not Zoro. Zoro would, like Mihawk probably not want to fight a one armed man.

Most importantly there is that constant debate of whether Shanks is actually a swordsman...

Probably because thats not really a handicap since there's haki as opposed to one armed swordsman...

But i'm only basing this on Zoro behaving a lot like Mihawk post TS...Maybe he wont actually care *shrug*

You don't really need to hold sword with 2 arms though. Depends on the style.

Yamamoto Genryuusai disagrees.


To be effective In combat, a warrior must not feel for his enemy. Close your heart to their desperation. Close your heart for their suffering. The road ahead is long and unforgiving. No place for a boy. You must be a warrior.

Dead. Nuff said.

 

Seriously, yeah, that's kendo/shinigami's kenjutsu which is just a sword style.

 

Also Shanks may have found a way to double the strength of his remaining arms or something.

I was looking at the old Zoro highlights and i noticed that post tine skip Oda likes to drive Zoros character through the ordering of lesser strawhats to serious it up. ( punk hazard + zou) he also said he was going to lead the samurais and was the first to lead the Alliance into saving the day. ( pica's tactic )

Wano is clearly being set up to develop this aspect of his character. Aside from soloing a yonkous second hand, leading an army and probably clashing with an admiral. Will Oda explixitly call him the first mate or will he continue to be de facto first mate?

Don't know about this but I am nearly sure luffy will find wano in shambles. Q:"What happened"; A:"Zoro happened"
When Luffy arrived at zou sanjis group was already seen as heroes. I don't see any reason to not do the same with zoros group.

If Jinbe survives next arc, he ll be first mate.

never.
He will for ever be third mate or the simple advisor.

No hes right it has to be jimbe. Jimbe is more mature and dependable, as opposed to zoro who is famous for sleeping through crisis.

Sleeping through crisis shows how level headed he is doe. btw are you referring to the Kuma vs strawhats part deux?

 

Jimbei doesn't have the military strategy, the charisma or power to carry the rest of the scrubs in the alliance into a solo of the kaido memester btw

wow I wouldn't go as far as to say jimbe doesn't have this or that.
He has been a pirate for 12 years. He's been a captain for +/- 6 years.
Zoro is cool and he's the first mate and so I want him to show his worth to be honest jimbe, brook and franky have better leadership than he has.

brook actually has captain experience as he lead the rumbar pirates for an unespecified period of time until they met their end in the florian triangle/.
Franky was the leader of a infamous organisation called the franky family. You don't get that many underlings by being a loser of a leader. He was also the leader for a great period of time until the events of EL

You went from "they have better leadership" to " brooks crew got annihilated, dude. Top ten captains." Wew

Having been a captain doesnt mean youre a better leader. Zoro has a history of guiding plebians into glory, and being able to take responsibily and persevering under duress. Plus his superior strength reassures people all the time. Aka the fourlogy of One Piece leadership qualities.

Franky was a meme captain. Brook, well we all know what happened to him. And jimbei is unnecessary suicidal.

We'll know more about Jimbei's position in the crew when we see the remaining Calamities (assuming Oda plans to give a fight to someone who isn't Luffy in the future). If it turns out that Kaidou's number one isn't a swordsman, then we'll have three Yonkou crews where the 1st commander position is occupied by a non-swordsman while the 2nd commander position is occupied by a swordsman or swordswoman. At that point it will be hard to deny there's a pattern. :shrug:

 

Also, @TrolonoaZoro, when you say Jimbei doesn't have the military strategy, are you forgetting about all the times Oda has emphasised Jimbei's planning and strategic abilities? Not saying the strategies or plans are particularly inspired - this being OP and all - but we've had him suggest the plan of attack in the two arcs he's been in and even the Big Mom Pirates said that meticulous plans were to be expected from him.

If Jack is fishman then maybe him for Jinbe. Though I think with that many strong characters in one arc we won't have true 1vs1 reserved for SHs. Supernova like Law and Kid will probably eat into the screentime. Though Oda can always make Law a suporter by running around teleporting people to safe places LOL
