The bartender recognized him after looking at an address. Sorry but I don't understand how that hint to someone about whom everything was forgotten. Also I'm pretty sure he had more scar on his face than his blind eyes.
And if Oda is not compeled to follow the pattern he has himself created, his fans will appreciate much more if he does. Also what would be the point to mislead the readers by using it for another character. And since he is on the usland incognito, I don't see why he should not be in the coliseum. As for his identity not being revealed after 4 chapters, he didn't even appear in last chapter ! If jinbei could wait 600 chapters, fujitora can 5 or 6.

Well, you know, it wouldn't be the first time Oda mislead his readers.Quote:
The reason is simple: if your mission is to stop Luffy and Law, and you find Luffy, even if you were instructed about not doing anything for a day, you just don't leave him behind, you keep tracking him. It would have much more sense, because if you are lucky Luffy could drive you to Law. I wrote it again here.Quote:
Well, just because he didn't reveal his identity right away, doesn't mean that it's not Fujitora. Some people forget that Oda is not always that unpredictable. I remember a lot of people doubted Aokiji was sitting on a bird, even though there were plenty of clues, some even saying that it seemed too obvious that it was Aokiji. I remember people saying that Dofla wasn't the owner of the auction house, because Jolly Rogers didn't have the same number of teeth...Quote:
We don't know what Fujitora's exact mission is, but I'd bet it's not limited to Luffy and Law only. If Dofla didn't resign his position of warlord, Akainu wouldn't even bother sending an admiral there. The way things turned out, the situation could escalate quickly. If Fujitora was sent to observe the situation and act if things turn to worse, then it makes sense to blend in with the crowd. Or maybe he knows more about the tournament than we do, As it is, Colliseum is probably the hottest spot on the island now. That many strong fighters from different countries, all of them hoping to get mera mera.Quote:
Has it occured to anyone that maybe WG wants mera mera for themselves? As Dagama said, it's a weapon. A powerful weapon. For an organization that constantly tries to increase it's military might to pass this opportunity? Maybe that's Fujitora's mission as well.
I find that a lot more likely than Kyros coming back to watch the tournament after 20 years, on the same day Fujitora is supposed to be on Dressrosa, and coming across a bartender that knew where he lived, looking completely different than his statue and using a different weapon.
I'd like to be surprised too, but I just don't see it.
- And a sign can trigger the recovering of lost memories. It's a mechanism similar to the hypnosis (talking about Doflamingo and Momo's sudden memories of him), when certain event triggers some kind of behaviour: (when I say: "tomato" you take the gun and kill the guy".) In fact, it's a very regular feature of our mind. And, do we know what was the words in the paper the bartender read? Nope. Like the word 'tomato' in the example, there could be a word that makes him to remember. It's possible.
- If we don't forget that Oda is not always unpredictable, that's because we also remember that sometimes he is unpreditable. Even more, a prediction is a prediction, like a guess or a conjecture. It's not a deductive argument. Otherwise we should read fan deductive arguments intead of the story.
- If we don't know what exactly Fujitora's mission is, we do know that he has the mission to not let Luffy and Law do what they pleases. That is all what is required to understand that it's odd that he left Luffy behind. At least we should wait for more explanations to be sure. And if Fuji is searching for the mera mera no mi, well that would be possible tho much more far-fetched that supposing the blind man is the former king of dressrosa.
I also would like to be surprised. But right now I simply don't know who he is, as it happened with Aokiji and his shadow. I choose to be ignorant, til the story tells the true.

Blind Guy = Katsu Shintaro from Zatoichi, the blind Swordsman.
So yeah, he mostly likely is the Admiral seeing the other ones being also based upon japanese legendary actors.

Cool, so Mr. Shintaro hates gamblers? Which way the screen cap is leading to?
Either way, I wonder if Blind guy is here to arrest anyone, or even to help destroy
the factory : D

You can find the last big argument from post #521 and up, since you seemingly have ignored the elaborative posts up there.
K-dom: Does he mislead or rather let's the readers do part of the thinking and connecting for once?

Well the fact that the past admirals were based on TV Japanese actors is not an essential part of the plot.
In short: Him looking like an certain actor is undisputable, but we've gone further already, haven't we?
