What do you guys think of a theory that Fujitora is not a devil fruit user, but if he applies Haki to his sword, there are special properties. E.g. Gravity in this case.
Similarly Zoro's special sword he got from the samurai may be have special properties but he hasn't found out yet.
Do you think this is possible?
It certainly is possible, it'd explain why he has to ''cut'' the enemies before unleashing his gravity.
But it might be possible his sword has the DF.
In the newest One Piece anime episode the way Fuji handles his sword and gravity seems to suggest that it may be the sword that has the gravity powers and not Fujitora himself. I do want it to be him though.
It might also not be a DF at all. Kinemon can use his sword technique to produce and cut fire, maybe Issho has a sword technique for controlling gravity. If this is the case, then we'd probably learn more with Kanjuro or when they get to Wano.
Alternatively it might be Issho's DF and he's just used to using a sword. He's blind, his sword might be part of how he 'sees' the world.

It could be possible that there are swords that react to haki (like vivre cards seem to do) but I highly doubt that that's the case with Fujitora's sword. He said that he was "just testing out his power" so the meteor thing seems to be a new power he obtained upon becoming an admiral. I think that they wanted him to get a powerup like they did with CP9. Also his gravity and meteor attacks are way too special to be caused by just a sword in my opinion.
I have my doubts about haki alone being able to pull of the stuff we have seen fujitora do. Well, certainly there are weird martial arts out there that have special properties beyond conventional martial arts (rokushiki, hashoken, fishman karate, kinemon's foxfire style, zoro's kyutoryu, sanji's diable jambe) however so far it kinda seems like fujitora is taking things too far. If the sword was using simple gravity I could buy this being some sort of martial art however fujitora has taken things a step further and summon meteors from god knows where. The manga has yet to give an explanation about weird martial arts but him summoning meteors to that extent seems kinda beyond what a martial art should do even by OP standards. At least IMHO.
And it's not about your point of view, it's just that your opinion about this is irrelevant due to the Anime not being canon.
If he didn't cut them in the manga, he didn't cut them at all.
Let me put it like this. If something happens in the Anime that didn't happen in the manga = It is not canon.
Which leads us to the conclusion: Fujitora does not need to cut people in order to use his power.
If he actually did need to cut the things he uses his gravity powers on, slicing those meteors up in space woule be a reaaaal bitch!

Anime are not generally even supervised by mangaka so manga always takes precedence. Assuming a scene wasn't in any way altered I would argue an anime can actually help make more sense of certain scenes but only if the anime did not change a single detail from the scene. Still, no filler can ever be considered cannon unless the author specifically went out of his way to state a specific anime event is cannon to the manga storyline (I think there actually are a few for that matter). Fujitora has never been shown in the manga needing to cut things to use his gravity so there is no reason for us to think that is a requirement. Heck, when he was holding lack back he was specifically not touching him with the blade and law was still trapped until fujitora's attention was turn to something else. Cutting things is unlikely to actually have an effect on his seemingly gravity based abilities IMO.
