Oda’s One Piece has everything from action to goofiness but something like Ace’s tragedy can be excepted and here’s why.
For starters, The Water 7 Saga and Enies Lobby are pretty much parallels.
After the Enies Lobby time skip, The Straw Hats gained the most power-ups in a single arc.
Towards the end of Enies Lobby, We had a new crew member. Also, Ace was captured by Blackbeard and was imprisoned at Impel Down.
Likewise, Wano is the post time skip that the Straw Hats gained insane power-ups and now we have a new crew member aka Yamato.
If the same scenario repeats then it is more likely that the Straw Hats or any of their close friends might be in danger.
Especially now that 2 Yonko are defeated, It can be possible that Oda is planning something big as the arc ends.
Well, What do you think about the Wano country and the new straw hat?
