    It is almost certain that the story shall have an arc set on Elbaf at some point in the future, so I wish to ask everyone here what expectations they have for such an arc.

    This is not the first time that a location was mentioned well before it appeared in the series, as the same happened with both FIishman Island and Wano; both of those arcs were highly anticipated by the readers, and they have mostly met expectations, so I hope that the same is true for Elbaf, as well.

    I expect that Oimo and Kashi will have returned to the island, and it would be nice to see Dorry and Brogy, again, but they were last seen still fighting on Little Garden.

    I definitely expect that Loki will make a proper appearance, and he may even be the main antagonist of the arc.

    I expect that there shall be character development for Usopp, since he admires the giants and wishes to be like them, although, given the relative lack of character development for Zoro, thus far, I am worried about Usopp in Elbaf.

    I expect that Big Mom will be involved or at least mentioned in some way, given her connection to that nation.

    I expect that the giants shall have their own distinct fighting style, including named techniques.

    What does everyone else say about this? What are your expectations for Elbaf?

    Well, WCI and Wano haven't been too good, so I expect another mediocre arc with a handful of good moments. Realistically, Enel and Urouge will be apart of that arc. Enel's "El Thor" is one of his most distinct abilities and the divine theme of Elbaf would fit him. Likewise, Urouge is tied to Enel as a Birkan and likely the very same "Sky Knight" Enel defeated years ago.

    Just hoping the hype behind the giants is legit. I don't want to have another Wano or Zou where they get hyped and all of them turn of out to be fodder to anyone significant.

    I hope we don't get an Elbaf arc and if we do it should be combined with Vegapunk or something. I'm really not looking forward to more filler arcs like Dressrosa.

    Also please no more Big Mom after Wano. She just had her own arc, now she is prominently featured in the biggest post skip arc so far. Enough is enough.

    I expect shorter 10 chapters long punk hazard-esqe arc where we see how badly was kingdom of strong giants ravaged by Shanks and BB war, it will be first arc were SHs don't save anyone from tyranny.

    I hope Ussop is heavily involved in the arc and becomes the one that coordinates the giants when they join the strawhat alliance in the final war.

    The davy back fight is a great setup for a friendly exchange with the Red Hair Pirates.

    I'm hoping for a little arc like Zou.

    Wano, Dressrosa, WCI... it's too long. I hope that after Wano it will be just Laugh Tale/Final War which will be a long arc (one same huge arc for both).

    If we have Shanks in this arc, then I just hope that there will be discussions and revelations and why not a Davy Back Fight, it would be original and refreshing (no need to always make an all-out war). Since Luffy and Shanks are on good terms (if Shanks isn't a racist snitch lol).

    I want a short arc but not Zou or reverie short.

    25- 40 chapters should be more then enough, and I hope we don’t get introduced to a zillion new characters.

    Seeing as how it's going to be one of the last major arcs, you know it's going to be yonko-fest.

    Elbaf arc has to happen I'm 100% sure of it since there have been so many mentions about Elbaf and its been hyped almost as much as Wano but I don't expect it to be an overly long arc like Dressrosa, WCI and Wano. It will probably tie into something important with the story like getting a hint on the location of the last road poneglyph or using Elbaf to get to Lodestar Island.

    I personally dont mind if Big Mom appears in the Elbaf arc as long as Luffy finally puts her down for good there in a 1 vs 1.

    I shall share the sentiments of users here who hope that an Elbaf arc is not too long; it certainly will not be as short as were the Little Garden or Zou arcs, but I do hope that it is not as long as the Dressrosa arc; perhaps the same duration as the Arabasta arc would be nice.

    Please tell me that that is a joke; the Dressorosa arc was one of the most important arcs in the entire series, other than the Enies Lobby and Marineford arcs, in my mind, so it was in no way a filler arc.

    Dressrosa might not have been true filler but with the amount of stalling there was it might as well have been.

    SHs go there to get more Adam wood for Sunny, but giants don't want them there. Hajrudin got captured by Loki for opposing him and challeging him for the throne. BM escaped wano and ended up there, made alliance with Loki.

    Luffy goes on mission to break hajrudin and his fellow giants free. Luffy ends up fighting BM, and hajrudin fights Loki for the throne. Hajrudin becomes new king with elbaf now under luffy

    There definitely won't be a long traditional arc in Elbaf. You can't have the strawhats interact with Giants for 50+ chapters, visually it won't work. Maybe a few Strawhats go there to climb that giant tree.

    I am hyped tho for Elbaf because it had a lot of charm in the BM Arc. It had a completely different feel than other islands to it. Also, Loki is probably going to be an interesting character.

    By the way, a dedicated person should (re)watch vicky the viking to get some clues what the arc may me about:lmao
