Watch in the end it never existed and Roger just wanted to set off a flurry of pirates. Or it's like a treasure chest with a piece of paper that says "Congrats!"
i bet it's a straw hat
The mangaka can't skrew us like that. He's to awesome a writer.
Kinda reminds me of Gurren Lagann with the whole super badass FABlock who appears in the first few minutes of the series only to never appear again.
Ha ha ha!
Yes, that would be the best troll ever.
sage for viz media
From what is already known about the One Piece world and Robin's arc, The Lost Century had technology beyond anything before it. The World Governments sole purpose is to keep the lid on that technology and keep the word from attaining the same level of tech again.
It also explains things like the Den-Den-Mushi, the Sea Kings, Cyborgs, and the Devil's Fruits(genetic enhancement thingies?).
Y'know what'd be funny? If Gol D. Roger's trasure wasn't at the end of the Grand Line and everyone's journey for it is a waste.
There is no treasure - the TRUE treasure is all the great friends and adventures made along the way!
THE ONE PIECE IS A LIE
Then how many crew Gol D. Roger had ?
One Piece has a huge dark undertone in it, I really doubt that.
Its at Raftel. No one has even gotten there yet.
Shitloads, dude. He had fleets, with Shanks and Buggy aboard one of the ships.
lol that happened in the first movie. it was terrible. uunan.
Fleets? Roger had one confirmed ship in the CP9 arc. Shanks and Buggy are the only confirmed members of his crew.
I have read this page like 50 times in Japanese.
Tomi, meisei, chikara. Katsute kono yo no subete o te ni ireta otoko. Kaizoku ou, Goorudo Rojaa. Kare no shi ni kiwa ni, hanatta hitokoto ha, zensekai no hitobito o ume e karitateta. "Ore no zaihou ka? Hoshikerya kureteyaruze. Sagashitemiro kono yo no subete o, soko ni oitekita." Yo ha, daikaizoku jidai (jitai? text is really small and hard to read in the black boxes) o mukaeru.
Whitebeard has fleets; and Whitebeard was on par with Gol D. Roger.
I still dont get how Buggy was on that crew
what's bugging you about it?
It was never mentioned that Roger had fleets directly, you may be right though. Next arc may have more to say.
Buggy was best pals with Shanks. It doesn't matter his power level, he hung out with that guy.
One Piece is the adventure. Anyone with a fucking IQ over 1 knows this because Japanese are not very good at suspense.
One Piece = naked pictures of Gol D.
Then again that might just show how much stronger Gol. D. was.
And if we're going with the Similarities between Luffy/Roger's Crews. Then I'm guess he had a small one too.
Considering the averaged Manly rating the guys in this series get, I'd say that Roger will probably end up being one of the Manliest men just about ever. Once /a/ gets wind of his actual story, these naked pictures might not be so bad a treasure. (read: /a/ is gay for... Manly.)
Don Krieg had fleets, too. Until Mihawk happened.
Haha, I see what you did there.
That honestly wouldn't be too surprising.
I can't see One Piece being anything outisde of the Dragonballs that anyone would actually want. Maybe Nami if it's a shitload of money, but she still has that map to draw.
One Piece is the one piece of your heart for friendships, courage and spirit that everyone has inside them. You just have to find it.
So-- sogeking ?
pff, One Piece is some kind of an awesome super weapon that can blow up the whole grand line.
it's jidai (時代)
nobody actually said they didn't know what one piece was, did they? They could very well know what was left behind
One Piece is Luffy. all signs point to Tyke Bomb.
I'm guessing it's the secrets from the unspeakable times and the One Piece talk was to make a competition between pirates in order to spawn an Alpha Pirate and crew. They would naturally oppose the World Government and use the treasure from the previous era and overthrow the World Government.
There's also been theories that the Clan of D is the last remnants of the ancient civilization who created those weapons, as well as the Poneglyphs, which fought a 'great enemy' and was destroyed, only for the World Government to be conveniently formed just afterwards.
The one piece is the true history of the world that the world government is trying to surpress.
lol at this shitty thread. is school over already?
No it's the power of friendship.
I liked the begining of One Piece. Gold roger is overpowered by two meager guards, and he's supposed to be top badass. Shank lose an arm in the blink of an arm, and he's top badass. No matter if you were important, the characters could be in danger.
Then it turned into a power-level serie, nobody can die and last time we saw Shank, it's insinuated that he lost his arm on purpose to inspire luffy. Massively gay retcon.
Oh, look. A newfag staying up late. Wave, everybody!
So did Goldroger let himself get caught because he was old and couldn't use the power he found?
nah. marine are cheap, they use seastone to weaken devil fruit user
Considering the massive turn toward power levels and plot armor later on, there's pretty much no other way to explain his death than say he let it happen on purpose.
Yeah but it hasn't been told that he possessed the power of a Devil Fruit
>it's insinuated that he lost his arm on purpose to inspire luffy
Roger was beat by that time. Luffy almost got killed there by Buggy as weel.
gold rogers dream was probably to start a new age of pirates
I wonder if there's a devil fruit that lets you die once and revive
What happen if you dies twice ?
It's all power of friendship and manly deaths and shit, One Piece is more about that than powerlevels. There was nothing for Gold Roger to do anymore so he died to inspire people to become pirates, and Shanks let the thing take his arm to inspire Luffy.
So basically, One Piece is an attempt to get old people to kill themselves.
Well I'm not totally sure that Gold Roger is gone for good, he could be chilling where One Piece and waiting
It's already dumb that when Luffy ate a devil fruit by mistake, he was told it was a tragedy and would severly impair him from becoming a pirate and then later the majority of powerful pirates are all fucken devil fruit users. If gold roger himself turns out to be a devil fruit user, it would be beyond silly.
Nah, final battle is going to be Shanks vs Luffy on Raftel, and Luffy is going to narrowly win due to Shanks not having that arm, and then Shanks will say something like "well, it looks like I decided who would be pirate king on that day" and die.
THE FINAL BATTLE
LUFFY VERSUS THE PIRATE KING!
It's going to be an E ticket
movie 10 might be the ending
They're going to squeeze more money out of One Piece than that.
nah, final showdown can't be between two good guys.
acutally... shanks going villain might be really, really, awesome...
Nah, it was mostly just Shanks feeling guilty because of what happened with Buggy.
Is Shanks even interested in being Pirate King? He never seems to travel anywhere.
Wasn't shank who said that, was his crew.
He's a Shichibukai.
In other words, he gave up on Pirate King and sold out to the government. If he meets Luffy he'll probably try and kill him, then find some bullshit reason to let him live like Kuma and Aokoji both did.
Thats two hax characters that could have taken them out at the time and sort of decided not to.
He is a villain already, he works for the World Government.
shanks is a yonkou, blackbeard is the shiichibukai
