    These aren't questions on Trivia to help us understand things already shown.
    These questions are simply asking Oda to ruin the plot for us lol.
    Why would an author just give vital things like this away? These are things we are supposed to wait for or anticipate.

    A good question to ask would be if Rebecca is based off of Red Sonja.

    Who is Luffy's mom?

    Luffy: wait, do I have a mother?

    I realized that I am merely a conscience programmed into a game.

    That may be a question for Volume 71 tough... I don't think Oda will include 14 chapters into Volume 70.

    Is the Pandaman that we see in Impel Down Pandaman Jr?
    Since his body is that of a young man and he doesn't, however he can be seen behind Red Hair Shanks in the Chapter 0 as part of Gol D Roger's crew.

    I think the answer to this question is quite simple, we are seeing the manga mostly from the main character's perspective so in most cases we can only see what the main character can. Or in other words, we learned how to see CoA when Luffy did^^

    What about Smoker and Vergo then ?

    Feels kinda random to just show us the CoA all of a sudden.

    Re: What would you ask Oda in the SBS vol 70?

    The blackening effect is not purely CoA, so it is not intended to be an indication for CoA usage, but a specific technique of CoA, there is a difference. Pre-TS, that includes the war obviously, Haki was really a vague concept (not that it is clear 100% now but that is another matter).. We knew that somehow you can hit the real body of DF users, we knew that it had similarities with Mantra of Skypeia and somehow you can make people faint with a special type of Haki, in this we shared the protagonist´s cluelessness which happens generally in OP by the way. So, we basically never got an explanation what it is, only a few characters mentioned it a few times (BB in Jaya and Impel Down, Hancock + Gorgon Sisters in Amazon Lily etc.). After Rayleigh explained Haki for the first time, both Luffy and the audience learned the basic concept of Haki and it has been established as an ability which is necessary to play with the big boys. After that, it is actually quite logical that Oda would slowly but steady expand both the ability and thus our knowledge of it because it would not strike us as weird as without an explanation of Haki at all (just think about people running around with black limbs in the war, most of us would have gone WTF).
    The second reason is versatility. Haki is an ability which is extremely static. We as audience can not measure the efficiency with which someone uses it nor their development in it. So after a while, the ability would really get boring if you ask me. So introducing different ways or techniques of specially CoA but maybe even CoC (i think Shanks damaging the ship of WB was a hint but it is not really a claim but a theory) makes it more versatile and keeps up the excitement for it. Introducing these techniques is only possible though because we already know the basic concept which brings us back to the first point.

    Now, if you would say that this is an inconsistency of Oda, then you would not be completely wrong. He showed different characters use the same skill but still changed it to something more but i if i am honest, i prefer this "tactic" over the alternative, namely either not showing any new technique of CoA at all (boring) or confusing the audience with black limbs at the war.

    Re: What would you ask Oda in the SBS vol 70?

    Since we've been given a breakdown in ranks from lowest to highest within the Marines,
    Can we get a Breakdown in ranks from lowest to highest for World Govt Agents?
    Since Kong is at the top sure, but I want to know the hierarchical structure from top to bottom. That would be cool.

    And another question, if CP9 deal with assasinations, what do each of the other 8 Cipher Pol units deal with?

    Why did Zoro lose his laugh? Last time I remember was after Buggy has been sent flying by Luffy.
    have fun, good luck

    I'd ask him why the girls breasts keep growing, while their waists keep shrinking. Kind of creepy.

    That's only something about changes in Oda's style, isn't it? IIRC, Oda drew Nami for the last pre-timeskip colored cover with her being in Orange with large breasts in chapter 516...



    Much bigger than they used to be back then in the beginning of the series:
