    what it is that is so important that gov wants to keep a secret, and killing innocent people...it must be something bad, nasty, and has something to do with pirates.maybe they once destroy all the pirates in the so called void century..

    so just to confirm.by collecting the poneglyrph, we can know the void century.is that right?

    ready to hear your thoughts

    This period became known as the blank century because there is nothing left to acknowledge anything whatever happened during that time. The only surviving written accounts of the events of the Blank Century are on the Rio Poneglyph. This has prompted historians to search far and wide for the Rio Poneglyph. However, the World Government is desperate to keep the Blank Century a secret; they've obliterated entire islands to kill the archaeologists capable of deciphering the poneglyphs, and when eight-year-old Nico Robin escaped one such assault, the World Government responded by putting a 79-Million-Berry bounty on her head. These harsh actions have led many to assume that the true history of the Blank Century contains information which puts the World Government in severely bad light.

    Finding the true history of the Blank Century is Robin's dream.


    do u guys think we will find out what happened during the blank century

    Re: void century

    In the voild century (blank century), the world government was created. So world government wanted to hide the history that they killed some group of people, race or maybe innocent people. My thought, if it has been revealed, the World Government will look like villain group automatically.

    By collecting the REAL poneglyph (Robin mentioned before cannot remember when) we will know the true story of that blank century. According to the writing on the golden bell in Skypea, Pirate King Gold Roger knew it and tried to reveal it to the world. My thought, the D people are the one who are trying to reveal that fact to the whole world.

    These are my idea though.

    Re: void century

    so what is mentioned in the first poneglyph found in alabasta?
    and the second poneglyph in skypea?
    if it is written by human, how can it be spread around the world?

    Re: void century

    Uh huh, in Alabasta it seem to be about Pluton, and in Skypea it is about Poseidon.

    In chapter 301, It seem that Robin thought the info was useless because it was about weapon at first. After reading what Roger wrote on the Bell, she seem to notice something what Real Poneglyph is. Then brought all the clue in one piece to Raftel.

    Ah hem... I think Gold Roger put all the clue together rearranging them all into ONE-PIECE and put them in Raftel. Luffy jsut go there and read them. "One piece" of the blank century, it is the treasure of the world.

    Again these are my idea though.

    Re: void century

    yep that's what i'm thinking actually. this theory is great. perhaps it really is the secret of One Piece. to piece all of the fragments of the lost history into "one piece".

    perhaps roger discovered it and that maybe the reason why he got executed. well, him being a pirate is a reason enough to execute him but this may be the real deal on why he was dubbed the pirate king and on why even those with the slightest relation to him are sentenced to die (like Tom). the government may be fearing that the history discovered by roger may leak out so they are tracing every single one that roger may have an acquaintance with.

    nice theory btw Dark Zeza

    but you know, i do hope your theory is wrong. why? coz it'll take all of the excitement of the story. >_< sorry

    Hahahaha! Don't worry about that maybe I am wrong. By the way as you all know, Oda sensei is genius.

    Pluton is on Alabasta and Poseidon is actually on Jaya (before the Knock Up Stream blast it to the sky)

    True. Eventhough I like the idea of One Piece is the DF tree, but this is the most possible thing. After all, knowledge is the best treasure. It will bring meaning not to just the SH, but the entire world.

    I think the void century is connected to the devil fruits fore some unknown reason. Probably they came from there.

    I think the void century is about D will and Luffy's ancestors. In the end, all pirate will unite and fight against WG.

    Re: void century

    I rewatched it, and it does look like poneglyph. But, I guess that's just a mistake, or another carvings that looks like a poneglyph. After all, they were fighting in some kind of historic place...

    [b][font=verdana][color=green][size=1]Luffy was unable to break it (A ponyglyph characteristic), maybe it would have something to do in the future of the Anime
    Spoiler: WTF show

    Re: void century

    Maybe. Maybe it's just the same poneglyph Robin was reading. Just at different angle or just been smashed to the lower levels where Robin and Cobra found it.

    Seriously, I don't know about that. Perhaps it has a greater meaning in future. But right now, I'm just viewing it as a mistake or something Oda wants to be happening in the anime.
