I want to see how shanks got on Rogers ship, since he was still apprentice level.
Roger went into the Grandline, travelled a bit, came out then re-entered on his Pirate King run = i dont think Shanks or Buggy were with him for the first run cos then Buggy wouldve known who the Straw Hats original owner was. Plus everyone on the Roger ship looks older & more worldweary like theyre amused by Shanks&Buggys innocence compared to them who are having a second go through(once again now, & with feeling!).
Im expecting something Shanks did made Roger want him to see the world so he brought him along & maybe thats why hes never tried to change the world in a big way since thats the world the man he admired created & he has no desire to blemish it
Jorge, if it were like that, then he would have died, and his ability wouldn't be logia. Countless times, BB was burned, cut, stabbed, punched, etc, but he was never scarred or never had aftereffects
Geez, What I mean is, maybe Oda said "haki", but the translators took it as the Co Haki, and Oda was saying ambition/spirit. On the site I go to, it calls it spirit. Besides, does it really mater anymore? Within the time skip, he probably learned haki if he didn't already know it, cuz I just can't see BB as that powerful if he gets owned by a logia admiral or something.
Well, for quite a long time I have these thoughts about One Piece... some weird coincidences that needed to be cleared. These are only hypothesis and i'm aware that they can be totally wrong
First of all, this "Weather Accident" is nothing like luck to me. I am pretty sure that someone in Gol D. Roger's crew made this happen. And if that's actually true and Raftel a real island impossible to reach, it would explain how these people are able to go anywhere they want despite the elements. The gift to hear all voices may have turned Gold Roger in a natural log pose, thus capable to guide his ship in the wildest seas.
I have read somewhere that Oda built the name Loguetown from "prologue" and "epilogue". We can assume it's about Roger... A same place, two different times : a start and an end (which created another start ). What if Oda cooked the same thing for Raftel ?
I always thought that Raftel was a place that contained the ruins of the old kingdom, the one that fell during the void century. Maybe an intact city. And, like Atlantis, which technology was also hyper advanced, the city have been hidden in a precise purpose, becoming a place normally impossible to reach.
Besides, since a few weeks, some people began to speak about Davy Jones because of the data book and it made me think about Pirates of Caribbean (ok it MAY not be the best reference here... lol). In the movie, they went to the end of the world to find Davy Jones' locker and in order to get outta there, they had to flip their boat upside down.
Two ideas crossed my mind :
1- the end of the world in One Piece would be in fact the same place that starts it : Reverse Mountain. This idea reminds a lot the "loguetown thing" Oda thought about.
2- If Raftel is there, it has to be under it and upside down. The gravity issue explains why Reverse Mountain is like this. It also implies that Raftel is not on Grand Line, and thus explains the magnetic field problem.
Edit: Since i posted it, i thought about it and added 2 ideas :
1- For me, the void century is a war that occurred between the fallen kingdom and another one (or a coalition) now represented by Marijoa. That's why, the better place to hide the old Nobles enemies' city is there, at the opposite of the world.
2- Now it may look stupid but in every Pirate story, there is a treasure. To reach this treasure, there is most of the time a treasure map with a beautiful " X" on it. I wondered whether we saw it in One Piece, in any kind of situation and there I found it ! The four canals that "push" water from Reverse Mountain form a big giant "X". It might be a coincidence... an artful coincidence

I predict in chapter 666, which will occur right after or near the wrap up of fishman island, that we will see Magellan again and he has become a vice admiral. Garp said that was as high a rank he needed to do what he wants and that would let him pursue the escaped convicts, in a sense trying to clean up the mess that was made at ID. He will have a rivalry with Smoker since they are both after Luffy.
I think that Dragon and Garp are going to have to confront each other at some point considering they're in direct conflict. When Dragon tries to overthrow the government I think this may happen, along with this I think Garp's going to be killed. I know this is dark, but I don't think they're going to have Dragon be a perfectly just character fighting to save the world from the evil government. While the world government is obviously horribly corrupt, overthrowing it will mean he kills thousands and thousands of marines and world government officials to do so. I think Dragon will kill Garp, and when Luffy meets Dragon he'll kick his ass. My own predictions, I could be wrong I know but something between Dragon and Garp has to happen, and I can't imagine him ignoring Dragon or joining him by any means.
Since dragon seems to be the strongest guy in the world, it would be awesome if he turned out to be the final villain.
i kinda doubt hes going to be a villain (i wouldn't want him to be one)
Hes helped luffy in louge town.. and he took Nico Robin under his wing..
When the revolutionarys make their move, i think the straw hats are going to find out about the void century and more about the government.. and this will prob be near the end of the series.. I think the straw hats will find One Piece first and then this will lead up to the final battle between the REVOS and the GOVERNMENT and every notorious pirate willing to join.. White beard war x2......
I think the One Piece is the True Story about the "Void Century". Simply every single Information that Roger and his crew gathered while crossing the GrandLine and then hiding it. I guess knowing the truth about that part of the History really fits to be the "greatest Treasure" in the World.
Agewise I think there is no problem with Dragon beeing on Rogers Ship at that time.

About Dragon, his past is total mystery... so you could be right !
i predict elbaf right after this atrc...
doubt elbaf will be so soon because ussops dream (or part of it) would be over to soon before the end of the series
The one plot-related idea/prediction I have for the Elbaf arc is Big Mom will be somehow involved. Mostly because I think that Big Mom is literally a giant. Just something that stuck with me as I thought of it.
I don't agree that Elbaf will be right after Fishman Island, though. I'd like to think there's gonna be another couple of arcs in the New World before we get there. But that's also probably because I'm hoping for Big Mom to be there, and I don't want Oda to force the Yonkou on us too soon.
