I dont think SHs gonna fight every shicibukai and every Yonkou in one piece.
they will fight BLackbeard for sure but I dont know about the others
and for the shicibukai he will most likely will fight Doflamingo only,
but I think before they reach Raftel we will see a major war that gonna shake the whole world they will face the marine, shicibukai and every Yonkou except Shanks
and with the help of their allies they will reach Raftel and Luffy will become PK.
so I think we will see major 7 arcs before Raftel.
1- FI arc
2- random strong Pirate from the new world arc.
3- one with marine Smoker most likely arc.
4- with the other SN Eustass Kid probably.
5- shicibukai doflamingo .
6- Yonkou Blackbeard
7- revolutionaries arc.
and then the big war lead by Luffy to reach Raftal

In fact it's really difficult to say, cause we have too much unrevealed information.
I'd say at least we'll see 7 big arcs and around the same number of mini-arcs to tie up the plot.
cannot edit the poll ..
at the moment
more than 13:5
update:poll already fixed by moderator
dont forget there might be 3 replacement schicibukai already on the card.expect kidd to be one of them.
more shici more arc.

yaah I forgot the revolutionaries, I will add one more arc to my first post.
and about the mystery of the will of D and the Void century I dont think we need a special arc for them only
I think the Void century will be raveled in revolutionaries arc.
and the will of D we will know it by the final arc.
I would think there will be 5 more arcs after fishman island along with at least 3 mini arcs. That is pretty much what we got in the first half of the series.
lol ask a mod to edit your poll. Anyway i've voted 8.
I said 9. Because I think 9 is a nice randomly chosen number.
Oh, and also if you ever think "Well if you count Big Mom, Doflamingo, Vegapunk, Aokoji, etc theres a lot to go" <- never count that. As I've surely said before, it's not impossible to believe that the Raftel arc isn't Luffy vs Blackbeard whilst Akainu holds Dragon hostage whilst Doflamingo sits on top of Poseiden and Smoker waits at Raftel to arrest whoever arrives.
Really, arcs aren't always that simple, and Oda has been getting more complex as they go.
Also depends on what you count as an arc. For example, I count the WB War Arc as a set of mini arcs which include: Shabondy, Kuja, Impel Down and Marineford. I count Crocodile arc as Laboon + Whisky Peak + Little Garden + drum + alabasta.
I voted 4 arcs left
1)Fishmen island would of course be the first but might tie up to Donflamingo since he's a slave trader so he might try to stir the ol' business again.
2)The new Shichibukai's rise and fall and Blackbeard replacing WB's place as the yonkou's...along the way he kills Kaidou or the other one which is not Shanks and the Marines take him much more seriously, also a little about the will of D.
3)Revolutionary arc in which the reason of the revolutionary army exists in the first place and history of the will of D, Smoker as a spy that then learns about the crimes of his government, Mihawk and several VA's to face the SH's and at the end Smoker to be a new member .
4)Raftel is reached, all out war, Neo poneglyph, Blackbeard attacks, Red haired pirates cover SH's part in the war so they will deal with BB's crew, Garp accepting Luffy as a great man, revelation of the crimes of the government to the world, marines goes in flames and we get one piece with Luffy with a smile as big as the Millenium Earl of DGM and some other stuff
i've voted 13. cause today's dec 13......
Tbh, if we are talking about arcs then there is probably going to be about 20 or more. On average, there were about 4 arcs in each Saga and we had about 5 in the first half of the Grand line, so I'm guessing that is what you are talking about. Seeing as we had around 5 Saga's in the first half, I ain't expecting an amount overwhelmingly higher than that like 13.
hum 13 can be a good number. Oda said 5years left for one piece. And for me a good arc = 6 months at least (~24 chapters)
Well you obviously didn't get the distinction I made between an arc and a Saga. If it is an arc, then 13 would in fact be kinda short imo considering we had over 20 in the first half of the Grand line. What you guys are referring to would be a Saga which we did not have many of pre-time skip. 5 to be exact.
Anyway, I guess we can call it whatever we want. Saga or Arc. It doesn't really matter I guess as long as the point is understood.
