    Why nothing didn't happen to him despite getting cut in the head.

    Their COA haki simply wasn't sharp enough.

    I mean if you can't even cut a leaf what chance do you have against an top class superior opponent who's dripping hot magma.

    ? They don't cut the leaf because they choose not to.

    Makes sense. I think I was on that train for a while but converted into the "Akainu used coo to dodge the attacks" camp. :kanyeshrug

    They choose not to use their COA and the sword then retains it's sharpness.

    They choose to use their COA and the sword is no longer as sharp probably even blunt.


    Edit: The also can miss cutting the leaf entirely.

    And honestly, What point is there to not cutting a leaf? like what does that change or help develop in the grand scheme of things?

    Koushiro was demostrating how a master swordsmen can choose what he wants to cut. The people attacking Akainu want to cut him.

    Well yeah, that's all in technique. You simply change the properties of the sword slash,

    The properties are either slash , pierce or strike. Haki can change that property.

    You pretend as if a sword slash that is going to cut me isn't going to cut the same leaf.


    People generally want to do a lot of things put relaity normally kicks in and showcases their limit. I want to do a backflip but reality hits hard.

    Haki was the only way that shit was going to work against akainu but they simply aren't skilled enough.

    What? It's literally just swordsman skill and will power. The whole point of "being able to cut or not cut something" is a testament to one's ability with the sword.

    Not sure where this akainu stuff is coming from, their haki just wasn't good enough to completely bypass Akainu's skill with DF/ his own haki. Sorta the reverse of Vergo vs Law, where the latters DF (and probably haki as well) beat through Vergo's superior COA.

    I never denied it wasn't skill. But it obviously takes skill to use haki in the first place.

    And their ability does not overcome the laws of nature.

    A slash provided it's a SLASH is GOING to cut a leaf. Just because it has a shockwave does NOT mean that it has slash attribute. Basic translation - a leaf isn't going to cut if you punch it.

    That's my point.

    I still don't understand what you are talking about.

    The shockwave is secondary. Did zoro hit mr. 1 with an air slash? No.

    He was explaining to Luffy the mechanism can be used in the manner he did so in this last chapter, despite being swordless.

    First of all, he did get cut because he bled. Second, why would not it not be more likely that he used CoO to avoid the brunt of the blows. He's a logia after all; even if he becomes tangible to a haki user's attacks, he can still warp the shape of his body to avoid getting cut. Exactly what you'd expect of a top tier logia

    body shifting would have meant he wouldn't be affected. he got hurt but getting cut in the head shouldn't "hurt" if you know what i'm saying.

    There was never a a very clear explanation to why zoro was capable of cutting mr 1.

    Unless it was the precursor to his COA haki.

    But it's about touching blade against any material, a skill is not going to overcome natural law.

    If the leaf doesn't get cut is because the blade didn't touch it.

    Did Roger also focus on Fodder Wood level Kings Haki ? :gglife

    Maybe thats why he was so frail and died from sickness. :gglife

    Shanks continuing on that legacy...

    Not necessarily. He could get hit with a glancing blow while he was shifting. He got his neck cut but by shifting at the last moment, he was able to relegate it to a superficial cut. It's the same as nicking someone with a regular body because they dodged the brunt of the blow

    Akainu might used Katakuri's technique to remove parts of his body during the attack

    it makes sense after WCI

    I always figured that his own Haki was too strong for them so it negated most of the effect of their own if that makes sense.

    Like how Defense Stats work in video games to reduce or nullify damage

    Nope. He probably asked to postpone the match. Stating he didn’t come to the NW or War to fight that level. Sickness can do that to people.
