Wow, so the Zatoichi movies in entirety is uploaded already (darkness is his ally),
just watched one of it in quick speed. It didn't show
Admiral Fujitora : P has any ability though, just lighting fast sword skills.
Maybe his DB is very dangerous attack-all-targets-regardless type,
hence his comment to Luffy. But don't understand why he needs to draw his
sword to 'release' that 'dark hole' ability though.
Akainu likely pick him to fight against BB then, where did he get such a guy : D ?

It's a visual clue, not a major plot point. Can it even be called "misleading"? Wouldn't the blame be on the reader, for taking the bait?Quote:
The only reason for Fujitora not to confront Luffy is for plot convenience. There is no believable way he could have left without confronting his target after such a massive display of strength. That is ultimately my problem with the old man being Fujitora. So many plot contrivances would have to happen for him to be an Admiral. Only one person in a crowded bar recognized him, but not until he was walking out the door. Marines are not allowed in the Colosseum, but somehow an Admiral was admitted. Going to the colosseum takes him away from the real action, Green-bit and the Smile Factory. He can't be there to find Luffy. He already found Luffy, and passed up the opportunity to confront him. We also don't know the details of Smoker's report. He knew Law was headed to Green-Bit. If he didn't include that, what was the point of Law even telling him? If Smoker did include it in his report, that is where Fujitora will be. And chances are Smoker did include it, otherwise it was wasted dialog.Quote:
He could either be Fujitora or someone quite powerful. I think he at least has Color of OBservation haki because he kept getting the right color when he was playing roulette. He's also shown to be powerful with the way he made a huge hole in the ground. He's certainly a big player somehow, maybe not as known.
Does Dressrosa even keep up with the news?
I did reply to your post above, commenting on some other points mentioned.
He knows Luffy is on the island right now and wont go away too, arriving in Acacia. No reason was given to act overhasty in the casino. Even despite Luffy's past, he will know that Luffy alone isn't the big problem here, it's the whole situation the country is currently in, accumulating famous pirates from all over the NW, the king resigning, a potential arrival of a fleet from some Yonkou to take over the island, or defend Doflamingo from the marines.Quote:
I can only imagine how idiotic it would be to wait at Green-Bit, it really is. There is no way out, but through the bridge, both Law and Doflamingo are about to go there. If anything, he should wait till both are at the neighboring island, cut all escape routes and confront those there.

they were going to consider the situation for a day. Why was that? The only reason I see is what k-dom suggests: they are considering a complex situation that involves not only the alliance but also Doflamingo's resignation and betrayal. For sure, they know what was Kusan talking about when he said, this could be the most dire situation for the marine. So maybe the situation deserves much more calculation and information that they had when they received Smoker's report. For instance, a sudden and effective attack over Luffy coud take time and many risks. It could provoke a big fuss, and so it could trigger a fast escape from Mingo and Law's side to a hole much more difficult to track. It's believable that before to entering the scene, they have to locate all the targets, and at the moment they could be ignorant of where is Law and Mingo.
I accept it's a good argument against the argument that his behaviour is weird, because his behaviour becomes much more understandable. But it's not an argument against the idea that the blind man is another character different than Fujitora. If Fujitora is not the blind man, he also should be waiting somewhere still hidden to our eyes. And the blind man could perfectly be the former king of Dressrosa who is there because of the news about the king resignation.
The former king of Dressrosa should be someone... And Dressrosa should have a past previous to Mingo's regime. Kyros is a good sign in that direction. Because with him the plot did a specific reference to a time when Mingo was not in Dressrosa (20 years ago). The plot will have to advance in that direction also.

An aditional note: The blind man said: "Who am I? It is for both our sake that I will not say". This has been used against the idea that the blind man is not Fujitora, with the premise that only the admiral could have said something like that. That's not true. The admiral could have reasons to say that if the Marine needs to be sure about its first step in the complex situation they are facing right now. But also the former king could have reasons: he also could be searching for more information to be sure about what to do first. And he could know about Luffy, and about the fact that it would be no convenient for him to reveal his identity... So again everything it's possible.

i think he is fujitora. it's obvious
i doubt an admiral would be wearing a samurai outfit under the robe....lol marines have uniform and elite marines wear suits.
blind dude is the shichibukai and therefore works with the government and that is why is luffy knew who he was...the old man would have to fulfill his duty as a shichibukai and take action
Just like Kuzan had to kill Luffy or Robin once he revealed himself? That's not an argument and will never be a decisive argument for him being an admiral or not. Let me point you to a certain cigar smoking vice-admiral not wearing anything you suggested.
Only the cape and lettering would reveal him as an marine. If you don't want to attract attention, you will not show any affiliation to the grudgingly accepted marines.

Also, it wouldn't make sense for an admiral to put on a marine uniform if he doesn't want to attract attention.
as u said 7th is new character
blind guy, fujitora (even if he is not blind guy) both r new character
7th is from Zephyr's time means old man and blind guy is old man
if this guy is fujitora then there is chance that he can be 7th Shichibukai. after all we dont know fujitora's rank we only know that Akainu send him

All that said, I do think most of the evidence points to the blind guy being Fujitora and not the last shikibukai or Kyros.
Spoilers are out, don't spoil the truth to others in there today, please!
edit: you are free to go
See this chapter had a situation leading to a needed disclosure of the marines position and a perfect scene to reveal his name like Oda did many times before. Capes always lead to a panel. :P
