But I don't really know about Shanks being the final one. I'm thinking maybe Shanks's killer could be the final opponent, but that's a long shot.
you've gotta be kidding me. The gorosei? They're four old dudes who rule the world. They CAN'T FIGHT. PERIOD. And it's already been said, repeatedly, that AOKIJI is the strongest fighter of the marines. Rank has nothing to do with power. Sengoku is a higher RANK than Aokiji, but Aokiji is stronger.
It has already been stated that what you just said is a complete nonsense that comes from a wrong translation.
The correct translation is "[Ao Kiji is] part of the marine strongest forces" or something along the lines of that. I'll check out the "strongest person" thread in few min, coz we discussed it there too..
And the Gorosei probably do can fight. Since rank=power/strength, they should've at least got some power to achieve what they are now.
Oh, and I made it painfully clear that I wasn't fully serious about the Gorosei, but I wouldn't be suprised if they were in fact the de facto villains. The Ghandi guy seems like he'd fight Zoro.
The Gorosei are/were definitely strong, probably all former Admirals and Fleet Admirals. So even if they got weaker with age, they're still PLENTY strong enough to put up a good fight. And Aokiji being the final opponent as opposed to the other two Admirals seems unfair, as does saying that he's stronger then them when we haven't even SEEN them yet.
It was stated in the manga that Aokiji is the 'strongest fighter' in the marines.
The Gorousei isn't in the Marines so they might stronger. They don't look like it, and I don't think strength = rank either.
You are wrong..
Kizuru's hat is stupid.
But yeah, that proves that the Admirals are given their position based on strength. Unlike in the Real World, they need actual fighting skills in the Marines, not just loyalty and tactical expertise, although Tsuru was made VA based on her planning abilities.
who was Tsuru again?
like in every arc every character gets his opponent, meaning a whole crew will have to be defeated.
either they will face the marines or the blackbeared crew in the end.
Blackbeard is the obvious future antagonist, which is a really good reason for him to be the last opponent. The only hindrance I find is that there's also a slight chance that Oda came up with him as a replacement for Crocodile in the process and that he wasn't in the ending Oda had in mind from the very beginning. The risk isn't that big though, since alot of the recent events revolve around Blackbeard and seems really thought out, and as much as I would like Shanks as the last opponent, it will most likely be Blackbeard.
AOKIJI looks like have a good heart and he's a oneman crew so i think so because that he can't the last opponent thats my opinion. We don't know much about sengoku but he knows the past of the pirates like gold d. roger and whitebeard so maybe he was a pirate and has his crew he can be. The Gorousei are a crew and i don't think that they are a weak one. he can manipulate or control the Shichibukai. one has a sword so i think that they can fill up the space of the last oponent. and maybe if they win luffy can disband the Marines but D. Dragon also wants that. So then maybe he can enter into the history and attack luffy because he'll be the strongest person ?
Gold D. Roger maybe
