i just dont see how a guy with 1 arm, using a sword can be more powerfull the the best swordsman in the world =/
so there's no "shanks is a better fighter but mihawk is a better swordsman",that excuse is ridiculous,shanks is stated to be a swordsman,so he is in the same category with zoro and mihawk,he doesn't have other fighting styles and even if he did they are not stronger than his swordsmanship otherwise he wouldn't be considered a swordsman with world class skills and he wouldn't be a rival of mihawkred databook said:本来左ききであるシャンクスはかつて、右の腰に長剣を携えていた。 ミホークとライバルだった 過去からみて も、その剣の実力は世界でもトップクラスだったのだろう
"At first, the left-handed Shanks had simply carried his sword on the right side. When he was a rival of Mihawk, he was regarded as having some of the world's top-class skills."
andZeff: He's carrying his weapon on his back!
Cooks: Wha... No way! He destroyed that huge ship with just that one sword?!
Zeff: That's right... The "Hawk-Eyed Man" is a famous master swordsman. He is greater than any other swordsman in the entire world.
mihawk is stronger than shanks,end of storyShanks: Well, "Hawk-Eyes", you're a welcome visitor. I'm not feeling too good right now... you come for a match?
Mihawk: Hah... I'm not interested in a fight with a one-armed man like yourself. I found some interesting pirates. And they reminded me of something you talked about a long time ago. About a small village... and a funny little kid...
so you can see that the OP grand times clearly destroyed any doubts and mistranslations on garp's wordsAccording to the thing, the Government is "paired" up with the Shichibukai and the marines. What that doesn't mean is that the Shichibukai and the marines are working together. It's just the Shichibukai are paying money to the government to get certain "privileges" like, to not be hounded by the government, free reign to do as they please type thing. So the government saves them lots of un-needed trouble.
The "emperors" are their own group, doing as they please and not paying the government and so are the enemy. The Marines as the "good guys"want to stop both groups, but doesn't go after the shichibukai due to being controlled by the government.
But each group, as they are, are the same in power. However if something was to change like the death of a member of a group, that could change things then that group could actually lose their standing and be over taken by one of the other remaining groups!!!!!...
what??? how do you know shanks wasn't always trying to fight mihawk cause he knew he wasn't the stronger?? where did you base that??Remember that Mihawk was always trying for battle with shanks because he knows that he wasn't the stronger swordsman or fighter.
here are some quotes from the manga and the blue databook:but after he lost his arm he reject to find him again
the part in bold suggest that he accepts every challenge but when a swordsman loses to him he can't challenge him again propably due to the honour code that swordsmen have (like the wounds in the back being a shame etc)info on mihawk from the blue databook said:Title: Dracule Mihawk
Side title: One of the Kings of the "Shichibukai*" and Strongest Swordsman in the World!!"
Text: The swordsman who carries the title of one of the kings of the Shichibukai. People call him "Hawkeyed Mihawk." He is the man who Zoro continues to chase. He reigns as the strongest and does not refuse anyone who challenges him for that title. Also, he has given Zoro a second chance to fight him despite losing once before.
so you can see that zoro knows that rule and even if people think that zoro said that for other reasons that doesn't justify mihawk's answer:"yes and that would be defeat"from zoro vs mihawk said:Mihawk: Do you wish to have this go through your heart?
Why do you not pull back?
Zoro: Huh... I dunno...
If I take just one step backwards from here,
I feel like I'll have broken an oath I have taken... A promise I have held up until now.
I would not be able to come back to this place.
- Page 139 -
THAT WOULD BE DEFEAT.
Zoro: Hehe... Exactly why I can't step back.
Mihawk: Even if you die?
Zoro: I would WELCOME death.
so how was mihawk made the strongest swordsman??? by shanks losing his arm and mihawk disagreeing to fight him?? how could that make mihawk stronger?? if what you said happened then they would be considered equals due to them being rivals and fighting all the time but for mihawk to be considered the best that means he won the fighti think that when shanks was at 100% he was stronger or equal to mihawk
