Chapter soon, old thread about dead.

> Rebecca stands up as the crowd begins to insult her and start spewing harsh words at her.
> Outside the Colosseum, Vice Admiral Bastille speaks about a man (I cannot translate the name, it's messy, sorry).
> Bastitlle tells all the Marines that the man (he is speaking about) took out everyone in Block D.
> The Marines have been chasing this man for quite a while but have failed to capture him. The man is rumored to be two times more powerful than Cavendish.
> King Riku has been captured and taken to the Palace, where Law is on the ground unconscious and Doflamingo has a wicked smile (and is super confident)
> Luffy, Zoro and Kine'mon reach the Palace doors and meet someone who would like to "guide" their way.

you started watching the anime when the war was going on. you caught up then started reading and when there weren't epic battles and explosions every chapter you say "man one piece sure has taken a nose dive" or "one piece used to be so good what happened?" you missed the point. its the world building that matters most and the adventure, characterization, and motives that matter, the battles are just a garnish.

Reposting from last thread. I am not that mad if it is rebecca who gets back up. That strong guy that is said to be twice as strong as cavendish could be just a random infamous pirate who enjoy beating up the contestants. He isn't really a official participant in this tournament. Because of his speed he is probably gone from the colosseum already.

>>100270241
She did win by a fluke. Although this mean that her endurance is stronger than cavendish which means cavendish is trash. And obviously the one that knock out everyone in D block isn't Rebecca but someone else from outside.
>>
>>100270241
She "won" but it was someone else's doing. Which still sucks but at least it wasn't like she won on her own. That'd be total bullshit.

assuming the spoilers are true
>>
>>100270241
The spoilers are coming from the chinese site that's been the earliest for quite some time now.

I don't see why people assume Rebecca won just because she got up. The guy who defeated everyone else must also still be up and can knock her right back down again. That is likely the piece of information the spoilers left out.

>Dragon uses his Conqueror Haki to knock out everyone but Rebecca since she's the princess of her Kingdom.

Am I wrong to think BB in Mock Town was way out of character compared to what we've seen?

His crew was fucking with people, as they're want to do, but BB was just eating pie and giving Luffy a speech about dreams. He didn't even BLACKHOLE the people laughing at him. Sure he was going to capture Luffy but that was just for his plan. He seemed pretty nice when he thought them random blokes.

But all he did was fuck shit up on Drum.

Then he tells Luffy to not give up on saving Ace and doesn't even try to fuck with him.

Then he's fucking venomous to Whitebeard when he takes his powers and goes 100% crazy.

Then the last we see is him burning a random village and kidnapping Bonnie.

He's supposed to be a guy who does anything for his dream but he just seems to go OUT of his way to fuck with people 70% of the time.
>>
>>100271189
Yeah I know... the theory is the mythical Zoans are based of the 4 chinese ones... Phoenix (Marco) Dragon (presumed Dragon) White Tiger and Black Turtle
>>
>>100267029
To be fair fishman's island was just bad worldbuilding. The slavery arc wasn't that bad but the island itself and its goons were just awful. Not to mention it was a horrible payoff for something set up more than a decade ago. The setup and payoff for the officer agents was much better.

Goofy head is the original (Acted the most like a D with Luffy in Mock Town) with Cerberus fruit
>>
>>100271283
with the amount of resources the strwhats enemies have pooling at dressrosa its safe to assume more allies will as well, unless idk, the vanquished gladiators are restored and go raise havok while a portion ally with the strawhats. shit, if the toy ability was cancelled out just like that and ten years of suppressed memories suddenly popped into the peoples minds there would be outright revolution, maybe thats why cp-0 is there, to make sure doflamingo's tenryubito authority isnt compromised, cuz they must know that wherever the strawhats go, shit goes down.

at drum it makes sense since the king was insane and probably tried to fine him for entry or something. not like he wiped the place out.

he didn't wipe out mock town either and was just there to find a high bounty (which he did).

before he fights ace he just robs the town but leaves them pretty much intact until ace shows up. The last "village" was an island with a climate that set it on fire permanently. He didn't start the fire. No, he didn't light it.

he never really destroys things for fun. only kills off thatch too for the fruit. I don't think hes killed anyone but thatch.
>>
Why is Robin-land so pure?
>>
>>100271396
in mock town he was just in a real good mood, the pie and booze really hit the spot or some shit ad he was just chillen before resuming business. BB is just like luffy except less inhibited in how he goes about getting his dream. luffys said to have been just like a young roger who was a great and honorable man but prone to bouts of murderous rampages and was reviled the world over. remember how he massacred squards entire crew cuz he got pissed? its not out of character for BB to not be all business all the time, look at luffy hes carefree as shit and truthfully the only reason luffy hasnt raided any towns so far is because of incredibly unlikely coincidences and circumstance.

As the 20+ contestants left in block D were all knocked out, one person gets up.
Rebecca stands up, using her sword as crutch. The crowd boos.
Everyone else lies knocked out (yes, including Meadows).
Ladies cry out worried about Cavendish, fans of Oorumbus can't believe he lost, etc.

Outside the coliseum, Vice Admiral Bastille tells a marine about the kamaitachi of Rommel.
(Kamaitachi is a Japanese folklore monster, and a strange natural phenomenon of wind slicing up objects)
In the Rommel Kingdom, it was said wind blows through at night slicing people up.
The marines went to investigate, and found out the wind was caused by one man... calling himself "Hakuba" (white horse)
The slim, shadowy figure is holding a saber.
The marines have not caught the man, but Hakuba appears at every city a certain pirate visits...

Rebecca's flashback to the fight in block D, as she stares at the fallen Cavendish

Rebecca is dodging Suleiman's attacks, when suddenly Cavendish stumbles onto Suleiman.
There's something wrong with Cavendish... he falls asleep.
Several gladiators take the chance to attack Cavendish... that's when he dissapears
Then, like a gust of wind, everyone in the coliseum gets cut up by an invisible force.... much like how Kuro did back in early One Piece.

It was Cavendish. With an evil face. Rebecca narrowly avoids getting cut, taking the blunt with her helmet.
As the evil face fades away from Cavendish, his actual persona is still asleep.

That's how this all happened...

The Vice Admiral explains to the marine... Caven turns into Hakuba while daydreaming.
Hakuba is Cavendish's other personality.

When Hakuba first commited crime and fled to the sea, Cavendish became a pirate.
The marine feels sorry for Caven, but the VA tells him Caven is enjoying this situation, do not give him mercy.
Cavendish is a genius swordsman to begin with, and Hakuba is twice as strong as Caven.
Unfortunately the fact he falls asleep when Hakuba comes out, worked against him in this tournament format...
(you have to be conscious to win lol)

Sabo praises Rebecca for being the only one who could see Hakuba, and manage to dodge the attack.
Although he has no intention of letting her have the Mera Mera fruit.

Meanwhile in Dressrosa Palace
Doflamingo is laughing as he and captured Riku sit there watching the fight.
Dofla tells Riku how his granddaughter is a lucky woman. (uh... Sabo just said that wasn't luck, Doffy...)
He mocks the former King on how desperate he has become, going after the devil fruit.
He continues to mock him saying his linage has been rather active lately, including Violet's action, and asks him if this was some special day for the Riku family.

Viola is a cunning woman, she took her chance. She bid on Trafalgar Law and the Straw Hat pirates to defeat Dofla.
But Law is as you can see, in his hands (Law is shown, unconscious on a chair, beat up and chained)
And Strawhat Luffy will never leave the Coliseum as a human.
The only active strawhat is the cyborg Franky, but he doubts Franky can take on his officers.
Franky is shown getting german suplexed by Senior Pink

The pieces left are just Pirate Hunter Zoro, Fox-fire Kin'emon, Nico Robin, and Sogeking.
The only entrance to the factory is the Toy house and the Palace entrance, they will never reach the underground

(what is with Dofla being wrong about everything this chapter)

The Tontatta girl (probably wicca) explains to Luffy/Zoro/Kin that they can get to the Factory from the Palace Entrance. They are all connected within.

She tells them operation SOP is already underway.
The three arrive at the lift connected to the Palace Entrance.
There's supposed to be a guard there they have to show permit to, the Tontatta worries that beating up the guard will alert them.
But the person they find waiting for them at the lift is Violet.
You're Straw Hat Luffy, right? I've been waiting for you. I'll let you into the Palace!

Well apparently when his evil alter ego took over he is unconscious.

Fuck we could've concluded that from last chapter's cliffhanger because Cavendish was not hurt at all and it makes sense that Rebecca was able to dodge the attack.

I'm really glad it wasn't Rebecca who used the super technique

>>100275843

But yeah, we can't directly compare Fujitora to the others admirals. Zoro is way stronger than when he confronted Kizaru (and he was still hurt from Kuma's shenanigans)
>>
>>100275887
Think of it this way. There's shit tons of VAs and yet they opted to make a complete newbie an Admiral straight away. So at the very least he has a step on the vice admirals. He might be on the bottom end of the Admirals in terms of raw power but he was put there for a reason.

Oda definitely pulled all of our legs with this shit, but I seriously would have rathered it be fucking Kaido or something. An evil alter-ego out of nowhere is (and I would never say this anywhere else in the story) kind of an asspull.

Oda is the king of foreshadow, but there's nothing to support this Cabbage.

>>100277303
this
there is no reason for Oda to let her to advance unless she is going to win it all

>>100276924
the way she wins battles is essentially avoidance and dodging, which is quite possibly the most cowardly way to win possible

imagine playing a fighting game where your opponent hits you once to lower your lifebar, and then runs away from you the entire match with full life until time runs out, and is declared the victor.

there is no honor in such faggotry, and naturally, everyone hates her as a result

Or is there? If Oda really wanted her to win, why'd he introduce her as such a weakling to begin with when he could've easily made her equal to at least Cavendish and given her a rampage mode instead? I really wonder what the reason behind this direction is.

My guess is that something else will happen in the Colloseum (as Doflamingo said, Luffy won't leave it as human) and Rebecca is gonna have a role in that.
>>
>>100277404
She's extremely boring, has no dream that won't be accomplished by the end of the arc, and doesn't even like fighting. The mera-mera would be utterly wasted on her since Doflamingo is gonna get rekt by Luffy and then she'll stay on Dressrosa with Soldier at the end of the arc.

>>100277404
>I don't get the hate for her. I like Rebecca and would love to see her join.
She provides fucking nothing to the crew and her face is Nami.
What can Rebecca do if she joins?
NOTHING.
If Kinemon joined he can make clothes, hats and other stuff for the Strawhats.
If Bart joined he can be Luffy cabin boy and ship defense.
Fuck the Fairies would be better than Rebecca since they can be Usopp 8,000 army.

Rebecca is there as the required goddamn Princess that has to be in every single arc that takes place in a country

Bellamy will assumedly have his faith in Doflamingo finally shaken by the end of the arc and maybe go bro it up with Bart, a guy that actually gives a shit about him.
>>

>>
>>100277783

No that doesn't make sense. If he wanted her to win he'd make her way stronger. There's no way she gets past Sabo, Bartolomeo, Burgess and Diamante when she won the D-Block, the weakest of all Blocks with luck alone

Yep pretty much, Bart can't since he has one, Xusasu probably won't because antagonist, Sabo might win, but I don't see him eating it even then, just doesn't sit right.
While she's not quite the type to fight directly, at the least she's a female with haki, something that's probably been bugging a lot of people since Amazon Lily.

... Good you finally got that
So maybe we can go on and discuss what IS her purpose actually. She certainly doesn't exist for no reason. Yet I can't figure out part she's going to contribute to the plot. I doubt that she's just gonna be a Mera Mera waste, but IF she eats it, what is she gonna do with it?

It's not like she wouldn't have any offensive power to begin with. She just refuses to hurt people. The Mera Mera won't change that.

She already has fairly capable CoO, highly unlikely, and its not like Xusasu punches with magma.

Well as is it's hard to bring down Doffy so with the fruit she thinks she'll be able to. Maybe the only way to counter Doffy's power in her mind is to burn the strings. She really despises him so getting that fruit to bring him down and never have to face someone like that again can all be achieved is she eats the fruit.

It's not Oda. It's Jump. It's a double issue so there won't be one next week
>>
>>100278245
I think her point is pretty clear
she's there specifically to turn the people of dressrosa on Doflamingo
shits gonna go down, Rebecca will likely win the tournament, Dofly will be all "Oh, so you want it so you can burn everyone just like your grampa" and Rebecca will do something to destroy the fruit entirely, saying that she won't let the kingdom burn ever again. THe crowd starts supporting her and Dofly snaps, striking out at her and nearly killing her, revealing to everyone just how horrible he really is.
Riots break out.
Dofly's empire is ruined.
>>
>>100278798

>>
>>100278891

bait
>>
>>100278810
And now Rebecca can't do shit against Doffy (it's not like having the fruit would give her more chances)
>>
>>100278913

It's not a break when the next chapter comes out in the next issue
>>
>>100278887
Nah the chapter ended with a sword through his stomach, so he's not dead. He was in the process of getting some new power so he'll probably use it next chapter and save naruto or something.
>>
>>100278904

>gets raped by Violet

He wanted it and you wanted it, too. Admit it.
>>
>>100278903
It's because they hold high sentimental value to Nami, she'd probably get all angry if those oranges were replaced by some stupid devil fruit.
>>
>>100278914

Of ALL Uchiha?
>>
>>100278975
madara was, at one point, the last of his clan. He restarted the clan.
>>
>>100278926
With CoO and logia she could potentially dodge him by making holes in her form and just roast him at leisure.
>>
>>100278904
And you think Franky could stand up to either Vergo or Doffy?

Sanji at least has Haki... Franky does not
>>
>>100278941
I mean that he even adds that when there's a double issue.
>>
>>100278926
exactly
that's why dofly exposing himself by simply losing his temper and nearly massacring the girl is important.

Mark my words, she's there to be dofly's undoing.
>>
>>100279012
Smoker is an experimented logia and still got rekt. She won't master the fruit after 30 minutes of usage and even if it makes her stronger, she would still be far from Doffy's level
>>
>>100279019
Don't need haki when you aint a bitch

Can't you see no one from this arc is going to join the crew?
Rebecca is the classic ''I live for my country/my country needs me'' character. She's heir to Rikku's crown 'till proven wrong.
Bartolomeo has his own fan club, his dynamics and personality are to be changed drastically if he has to join. Plus he already met Luffy, and no fucks were given.
Cavendish hates Worst Generation + batshit crazy
Tonatta people that have appeared untill now have no value to the crew, strong national feeling and even Luffy has met them and not a single fuck was given. Drawing would get prety fucked up for Oda if that was the case.


>>100278921
not even b8ing m8
>>
>>100277609
Sabo has already got Koala, it's not like he needs any other girl.
>>
>>100279101
Sanji's hardly a bitch... he took on Doffy to save the weaklings when he probably knew he was out classed

And it took Super jesus Law to get through Vergo's Haki
>>
>>100279144
Although he has no real development, sewing fruit tonatta could be a tailor.
>>
>>100279060
Dunno, he lost to Law and didn't seem to even bother dodging Vergo's attacks, I'm not sure he's particularly good with CoO, as Rayleigh said people tend to lean toward one form or another.
As far as learning the fruit quickly, yeah heard to say, though logia's at least seem the least of the wild card type, Paramecia is literally any power Oda can think of, Zoan on occasion results in fights like Kaku vs Zori.
>>
>>100279019
Haki isn't necessary to be strong. Everyone else has made it this far without using it, Franky's already taken out two officers of Doflamingo's family, whereas Sanji has done...kind of nothing, since Violet has been a turncoat from the start.
>>
>>100277724
Don't even know why people would even think Rebecca would join the straw hats. She's basically Vivi 2.0. She'll have a kingdom to run when Doflamingo is gone.

To be fair though, Smoker really didn't try to fight back

She's about the most boring option to win in a way; since we know she's weaker than some participants, she'll have no reason to even have the fruit soon since by the time this tourney is over Luffy will have already dealt with Donfla, and there's just hardly anything exciting about her motive among other things. Toy Soldier is interesting, but she just comes off as significantly the lesser option in a way.

It's like she's in this fight for a reason we know won't amount to anything anymore, and even if it did amount to something we wouldn't like it since she shouldn't get the fruit. We know she's weaker than Luffy already so she won't be getting past the Family, Jesus, Barto, or Sabo, so it just feels empty in a lot of ways.

As opposed to Cabbage who at least seemed to be semi- on the same level as Luffy, and combine that with alternate persona that doubles his power it would have made for a dangerous fight.

nah, if he had died on punk hazard, there would be no way to keep law hanging around
punk hazard HAD to be followed up by dressrosa because of law and Dofly. Oda would have had a complete rewrite and taken law out entirely, which really would have meant he had to take a lot of plot points and mix them into wano. Which wouldn't make sense because then the attention for wano would be on law, and not on the samurai.

When Luffy said in the last ark that Sanji and Zoro are also Haki users, does that mean Color of Armaments in both cases? I with Zoro its pretty obvious, but I'm not so sure about Sanji. At the very least, I don't remember his legs turning color like Haki usually does with body parts.
>>
>>100279491
We all know that, but he is not going to win easily.
>>
>>100279557
Apparently he's not aware of the Revolutionary Army acting in Dressrossa. And without their help Luffy wouldn't get out of the coliseum.
>>
So can Cavendish keep his evil persona on only for a couple of minutes?
Because then he sucks
>>
>>100279513
wow, you must be fucking retarded
>>
>>100279585

It's Diver Down. Almost exactly. Araki should sue.
>>
>>100279588
Well, Oda's had Jesus as a 'bombastic wrestler' character long before Mask showed up in Bleach.
>>
>>100279643
Sanji is specialized in CoO, but the thing is
>he only fights with his legs
>his legs are already black
>>
>>100279576

Wait WHAT?! Couldn't you have mentioned that before?
>>
>>100279643
I'm pretty sure Sanji only has Observation Haki.
>>
>>100279643
they specialize

luffy is the king
zoro is armor
sanji has the spidey sense

though obviously luffy can use everything
>>
>>100279592
>He trashed a bunch of fodder and couldn't take down a CoO user fully.
>couldn't take down a CoO user fully.

You do recall that the alternate persona doubles his power, right? Even if he was just five levels below Chinjao earlier he's now above him with this bonus multiplier. Even in his lesser form he was able to stop Chinjao's attack though so it's obvious they were in the same area of power.
>>
>>100279705
Now he only needs one leg to be cut off and he can be Zephyr 2.0.
>>
>>100279705

CoA is shiny, you would still be able to tell
>>
>>100279726
When Law said that only people with haki should attempt to attack CC since he's a logia Luffy nominated both Zoro and Sanji, so I assume Sanji has CoA too.
>>
>>100279732
We saw Zoro using CoO and Oda said he is specialized in CoA (don't remember him using it), so he just lacks CoC (which is kinda normal)
>>
>>100278392
I'd love to see sabo as an enemy.
>>
>>100279792
He flicked his sword in Monet's general direction and cut her cheek. Her knowledge of the fact he could use it caused her to shit her pants uncontrollably to the point she couldnt reform herself
>>
>>100279732

Can't Zoro us CoO as well? I'm thinking of the fight against Das Bonez, where he can "hear" the metal of Bonez swords.
>>
>>100279643
They both can use both Hakis. But Zoro stronger at CoA, and Sanji CoO. Don't listen to the other people that replied to you. You can't see Sanji's CoA cuz its under his damn pants
>>
>>100279792
zoro and sanji can most likely both use armor and spidey sense but they are particularly good at only one of them. so zoro has the muscle and sanji is spiderman.
>>
>>100279778

Ironically, wasn't it Usopp's Seastone handcuffs that got him in the end?

Post-timeskip Paramecia with no fighting application to date. Plus more than sewing it looks like stapling. But still, he lacks deveopment indeed.

Not untill proven. As far as we know, Doflamingo's crew and affiliates went to kill Rebecca's mom, daughter of King Rikku but not Viola, which they accepted under the organization. This foreshadows the importance of Rebecca's heritage.
>>100279316
I think he lacks presence in this arc for this to happen. That'd be also unnecessary for the development of next arcs...


>>100279322
>whyarewenotfudingthis.gif
>>
>>100279732

I saw somewhere that Oda had given us some numbers on how proficient the three were in each. Even though they specialize in one, they each can still use all forms. After all, would be fucking useless if Sanji couldn't hit logias.

But everyone is still confusing the CoA that allows someone to touch a DF user's real body and the advanced form that hardens the skin and objects while turning them black. There was no reason for Luffy to go nigga CoA mode just to grab Smoker/Tashigi, for example.
>>
>>100279906

I think CoA transforms clothes as well. I mean Vergo wasn't completely naked...was he?
>>
>>100279957
>Naked Vergo

HNNNNNG
>>
>>100279924

No, it's drawn with an obvious sheen in the manga as well.
>>
>>100279933
They didn't kill Viola because they already knew about her power and could threaten her into using it for them.
>>
>>100279942

I don't think Sanji and Zoro can use Conqueror's Haki. At least, I kind of would rather they couldn't, since its supposed to be rare (though when I think about it, it's not really as useful as the other two since it doesn't work on people with strong wills).
>>
>>100280055
They could have killed her and obtain the fruit
>>
>>100279942
No numbers, that was someone here making an example of how each could "specialize" in one.
>>
>>100280059
>, since its supposed to be rare

CoC is rare in the world, but relatively common in the New World where only the best of the best can flourish.
>>
>>100280059

Yeah, I didn't mean to include it. I'm pretty sure the numbers Oda provided (wish I could link you to it) did include Con. haki for both of them, but they don't have the potential to make use of it like Luffy. I might be wrong, though. Maybe my memory is off.

That's a fencing epee. Those things weren't ever used in real battle, only in formal duels. In a "no rules" type of fight, their extremely impractical.

Why would he post that in response to the previous statement about Durendal's "nearly breaking" against Chinjao's headbutt?

I thought his only point was just because the rapier gave a bit during the exchange doesn't mean it was about to snap like a twig.

It was about disproving the myth that Katanas can cut other swords like it's always shown in pop culture
>>
>>100280757
that's what a rapier is
spada, espada, and epee are the individual countries terms for what the germans called rapiers. the germans called the french, spanish, and italian swords rapiers.
>>
>>100281356

but Rapier is a french word
>>
>>100281333
they can. We've been over this a million times.

They can't cut ALL other swords of course, but most european swords were not made of high quality, they were made to support a large army. They were made to last through a couple of battles.

Katanas were made to last generations.

The only real reason a real life katana of the 1500s would consistently fail against some european swords of the same era was due to steel quality, not design of the sword.

yes, and like how the muslims during the first crusade called the crusaders "francs" it is a case of another culture applying a word to something mistakenly.
Rapier, at the time, was a verb.

Essentially, rapier is what you do with an epee.

So you're saying Europeans had the ability to make better steel and use that steel for their swords, yet their swords were somehow worse than japanese?

I am saying that the DESIGN of a katana allows for cutting through many swords, because many swords just aren't DESIGNED to prevent such things.

Some swords are, mind you.

But all things equal, such as having the same quality of steel in both, the katana wins over a lot of other swords. Some swords would still trump it of course, but one would argue that sword-on-sword is not as important as the combat that can be done with a sword.

Katanas can be wielded in fairly close quarters combat with deadly results, where most swords needed a bit more distance.

But the idea that katanas can cut through swords is a valid one. There are just plenty of swords they can't cut through.

Except that's wrong you fucking weeabo.
Katana's aren't designed for clashing with swords, their design is actually pretty horrible in that regard. European swords are designed for clashing with hard objects like swords and armor and thus don't break because their much more dendable.

Katanas have a hard back and break immediately when they hit something uncuttable

I'm talking about the popularisation of the word rapier
it game from the german usage

like I said, rapier was a verb (though I think the variation used at the time was an adverb) epee was the sword, rapier was what it did.

It's like the word walking stick.

It's a stick you use for walking.

But if you didn't speak english, and you heard a bunch of people saying "walking stick" you might end up calling it a "walking"

even though it's the wrong word.

But that's why it got so commonly used as a name for the type of sword. It's because those who DIDN'T speak french thought that was the word for the type of sword.

this happens ALL the time in europe, due to language diversity

They primarily belonged to the Japanese equivalents of knights, who mainly used them for cutting down unarmed peasants
>>
>>100281948
actually, in the mid 1500s, due to interaction with the Portuguese traders, they used iron and steel in their armors.
>>
>>100282055

Yes, after the europeans showed up. But not before
>>
>>100282045
what the fuck?
You have no idea what the samurai were, do you?
they were a class of people, not a specific rank.
Cutting down unarmed peasants? No, they almost exclusively fought other samurai in various skirmishes over land rights.

Samurai were simply a soldier class. They often were quite poor themselves, but were from a lineage that owed loyalty to a local lord so when that lord called, they had to go fight.

They were almost indentured servants, but for military.

They were a highly disposable class too

>I like japanese Katanas most. I have read many places that they are the sharpest swords, and that they are excellent slicing swords which are nearly impossible to bend. I also read that they are lighter, and therefore faster than European swords.
>My friend has an "hamwei odachi" sword. This is a japanese Katana which is very beautiful.
He also has an "albions duke". This is a huge sword of the knight- type, but you can grip it with two hands. I hope you understand what I mean. The grip is longer than normal european swords.

>Then he rolled up a much thicker trunk of tatamis, it consisted of many mats, and was so wide that I would not reach around it, at least four feet in diameter.

>He took the "albions duke", which is the european style sword. I was extremely shocked that he cut through the mats with this sword! He then tried with the katana, but it stopped after 3/4th of the cut was done. It could not cut through.

>I was disappointed in a way, and confused, and asked him why the simple european sword could cut better than the katana, and why it weighed less the katana.

>I read so much about katanas cutting better than other swords, when I saw this with my own eyes. Why do people write that they are lighter and so on, is it a sales trick?

>I have read experts who say that the katana is the best cutting sword, and that it is lighter than european swords, and I am having a hard time believing that they are wrong.

It's only a matter of time until Katana fags all get disappointed when they stop believing them what fantasy stories tell them

Aren't Odachi even better than Katana? What's the difference between them except the Odachi being longer?
>>
>>100282790
did you actually read the response that post got on the forum?
general consensus is what we've been saying here
all things equal, it's certainly possible for a katana to cut through other swords. Just like it's possible any sword could.
>>
>>100283465

>this damage control

The point is that katanas are worse swords in general and there's nothing to prove otherwise. Period.

Of course it might cut through some ancient roman gladius or something. Maybe. But that doesn't mean shit, because if you take any european sword from the same century it will do the same, but better
>>
>>100283450
odachi were not designed to pierce armor by thrusting. THey were usually used to cut horses or knock riders off of horses.
the front line samurai would use them to eliminate the calvary advantage of opposing samurai. Their backup would then fight those samurai with regular katanas.
because it was so rarely used (horse riding front-line soldiers were often only used in battles in larger open spaces, so a few really important battles, not the small skirmishes that samurai were usually involved in) the odachi basically became a status symbol. An extremely ornate odachi carried by a general basically said "I don't even expect the enemy will even REACH me"
>>
>>100283552
nothing on that thread says they are worse swords.
>>
>>100283625

except for the fact that it can't cut the same rolled up mat as some regular european sword can
