Time Skip Fast Approaching
ONE PIECE DISCUSSION
Well looks like Oda finally is introducing the time skip, now only for him to make it happen, when will that happen next chapter, two chapters, or three or more.
I'm looking forward to what Ussop looks like after he's done two years of intensive training. I'm willing to bet that he's going to look a lot broader and be much stronger physically. But I don't think he's going to be all that different courage wise when he gets up close and personal with his enemies. But who knows Oda might just surprise me.
Robin, well what can I say, she didn't serve a major purpose with the crew except for support, translation and as a historian, not to say that she isn't important everyone on that ship has great importance, but Robin's role seems to be the less significant in that her specialties come in handy but not as often as Ussop's, Choppers, and Franky's for example, but then again Zoro isn't much different. Maybe Robin will learn more about her abilities, or she will build more in strategic knowledge. Who knows again "Surprise me Oda"
Franky is going to have an interesting reunion if he doesn't fix himself before he returns, I wonder what kind of upgrades he will get with all of Vegapunk's old equipement, and with knowledge of machinery much beyond his own knowledge. I think we are going to see a "SSUUUUPPPPEERRR FRANKY"
Chopper of course we are going to know what he is going to increase in. Medical ability. I just wonder if he will excel in anything else. This story being what it is, I would think that he might gain some fighting abilities, or maybe herbs that can act as a stimulant or a booster to help specific people work better in what they need to, and maybe he can learn how to make a drug that can toughen rubber (I can dream can't I?)
Zoro is going to come out with interesting abilities, we already know that Zoro's physical strength is second to none (almost none). His sword abilities however are another topic. without a doubt Zoro's abilities with his swords are incredible, but however there are aspects with his sword skills that can be definitly improved on, fluency in his movements are one, complete control of his "spirit" which can help him cut through steel or stronger metals, another thing I would love to see is his ability to employ the sword in his mouth more to gain some sort of advantage, or what would be cool is if Zoro learns to use both One, and Two style swords kind of like a gauge of strength or a form of judging his opponents to give them a handi cap which by other means would allow him to learn as he sturggles. Kind of like when I was teaching military cadet trainees badmonton I would use my left hand for the weaker opponents to help them feel better about their abilities and for the stronger ones I would use my right hand, I even beat my boss and a couple of other strong badmonton playing officers, to this date I remain UNDEFEATED IN THAT CIRCLE(okay that's enough about me).
As for Nami, well her advancement is obvious, what I wonder is if she will employ the weather technology for her navigation, and her fighting abilities. I think it would be cool if she uses that "Wind Knot" on the ship to make them faster or blow away clouds to disperse storms. You know cool things like that.
As for Brooke, well, your guess is as good as mine, some things are obvious like his swordsmanship skills, and his misical ability, but to what extent I can't form an opinion on.
Sanji, the man who came back from the horrid beyond, the man who landed on the island that would be considered hell for most men (INCLUDING ME, I would commit suicide). Sanji's cooking ability will undoubtedly increase, another thing that would increase of course is his kicking ability, maybe he will get some type of energy ability similar to "Redleg's" kicks or Ivankov's winks. Maybe Sanji will learn how to use his hands in combat but more as a supporting ability continuing to follow his style of "Cooks use their hands for cooking" as to not dirty his hands with attacks, but to use it for blocking or for subduing an oppont depending on the opponent. (dirty side kicking in) because then he has free use with his hands when he is fighting a woman (and no I don't mean gropping, he's a pervert but not a rapist).
As for Luffy, well he is going to learn some KICK A$$ HAKI ABILITIES, and of course his intelligence level will remain pretty much the same. well that's the reason we love him, right?
