    I just had this weird theory in my head because of how shanks had such casual chat with Gorosei .

    What we know about shanks so far
    > He is against any war
    > sengoku stopped the marineford fight when shanks arrived. What kind of deal Shanks have with WG.

    Reason i speculate is shanks does not want other pirate to find raftel just like Gol d Roger. Also i feel there is something about shanks is bit off in reverie why does he warn about certain pirate to Gorosei .

    The next we also see gorosei immediately report to im sama and we have both luffy and blackbeard.

    I am certain shanks is good guy but he will do anything to stop pirate going after raftel that includes luffy.

    Also i believe the last poneglyph is probably with shanks or in elbaf . If luffy tries to get hold of the final Shanks will do anything in his power to stop luffy or fight him.

    This is my theory maybe i am just wrong but shanks association with gorosei/im sama just puts me in odd btw.

    Not sure if Shanks wants to stop Luffy. The thing is that Luffy reminds him very much of Roger and I don't see a reason why would he want to stop him. After all, he was the one that influenced on Luffy to become a pirate. Of course, the fight between them can happen. But I thought about it more like as a fulfillment of their promise - if Luffy beats Shanks then he has become a great pirate or something.

    I hope he will, it's better than being killed by Teach (meaning we will probably never see him fight...)

    Def i agree with you shanks infulenced luffy to be pirate . The fight does not necessarily have to be one on one take down . I take it shanks will give luffy challenge or task similiar to foxxys davy back .

    I dont think luffy has any plan to fight shanks eitherway. Just my guess !

    Ask a mod to move your thread to the OL (Ohara Library). This is the telegrams where we discuss the latest chapter.

    Luffy reminding him Roger and him having influenced Luffy to become pirate don't mean Shanks has good intentions.

    Tbh, Shanks is so much the perfect good guy it's rather suspicious. I really could see Oda pull an Aizen and turn him into the FV.

    And why would he do that? It's very unlikely Shanks is going to be the FV given that he gifted Luffy his "biggest treasure" which was straw hat and sacrificed his arm in order to save Luffy's life. He saw Roger's will was reborn in Luffy so he decided to support the new era's Roger. And Roger's crewmembers were so loyal to their captain (just like SH are loyal to Luffy) that it's almost impossible Shanks is going to be the FV.

    Shanks seems to just want to maintain the balance of power and prevent a massive war. Its why he tried to convince Whitebeard to not go down the road that leads to the War of the Best for that reason.

    Shanks is protecting Imhawk and will ultimately have to pay for it.

    Well we know that he wants to fight Shanks ever since his childhood but the question is if that is where the plot will actually be heading given that Blackbeard is still around.

    Luffy will want to fight Shanks...they are competitors for the same goal.

    Shanks is going to leave a huge cliff hanger for everybody. I'm sure of it

    no clue but tbh I hate that scenario in which Blackbeard kills Shanks before meeting Luffy, I would love to see them both talking to each other after 12 years. And the scene where Luffy tries to give his hat back to Shanks, I really don't want to miss that. :catsad
    But we'll see what Oda is going to do.

    I can imagine there are potential other scenarios. Who knows. I´m really only betting on this outcome because otherwise there would be no reason for Oda to set up this 20 years+ rivalry between Shanks and Blackbeard if they weren´t ever going to fight. And if they do fight then obviously Blackbeard needs to win. That´s the whole reasoning I would bet against the idea of Luffy fighting Shanks otherwise I am all for it.

    Better hope Mihawk’s there. This way Luffy vs Shanks, Zoro vs Mihawk, Sanji vs Beckman, Usopp vs Yasopp etc. Cause if it’s Luffy vs Shanks, Zoro vs Beckman, Roo vs Sanji. Might as well make Grandmaster lost 3/4 the arc then show up towards the end. Cause Uncle Ben will get cooked with the quickness if he meets a NW buffed Zoro.
