After this arc what????
Its a simple difficult question,after this arc what???i believe that luffy and the others will meet with whitebeard and shanks and then they will fight against the blackbeard!
I think they will have some fights with other Pirates like Blackbeards crew and also some stronger marines. I don't think theire will be a big arc like the current one in near future.
Another possibility would be to learn more about Luffies past. His relatives, the meaning of his initial D. and stuff like that.
I can only predict that the next arc will be the pirate summit.
it will be the beginning of mugiwara pirates vs all of shichibukai :P
i think blood is right, they will fight against the ones we have already seen
and doesnt the d stand for dico? they were the family who was almost wiped out by whatever the world gov was b4 it was the world gov
Hrmm..well im a bit of a n00b to OnePiece...im catching up but too slowly..
am i right in thinking we only know Mihawk and Crocodile is (was for croc) is in the shichibukai, so i think the Strawhats will fight another one/all of them...
Sig removed (too big).
After this arc im expecting the strawhats to lay low and then for the pirate summit to occur where we will see Whitebeard and others and reunite Shanks and Luffy and maybe Ussop and Yassop.
Didn't Bellamy say that the Straw hats would be entering Don Flamingos territory soon? I think he may be the next big opponent. Or maybe HIna and Smoker will be roped in by the buster call and start chasing after Luffy and the gang immediatly. It is really impossible to predict and that makes it so cool.
When was it that Belamy was "diciplined" (read: knifed by his own subordinate) by Flamingo? I remember reading it, but I can't remember which chapter it was.
Though as for the next arc, maybe a new ship arc? Pirates gotta' have a pirate ship.
Tch... right after the fighting's done in this ARC, my guess is that the Going Merry'll be broken down and salvaged for materials to make a new ship. This'd stop Ussop's bitching that it was his old crush's ship, and it'll make Luffy happy that he's getting a new ship. Doubt that anyone will be joining the Straw Hats in this ARC. They'll probably find someone else to be a mechanic/ repairman along the way, cause... face it. Everyone else is too damn old.
Guesses for after this ARC:: Word spreads that Luffy and all them beat the shit out of CP9 on their own island, so more pirate activity will be reported and marines get their asses kicked. Out of nowhere, Shichi Bukai (or... Roku Bukai as it is now), will show up to beat the hell out of Luffy and his crew. Shanks shows up, bails them out, beats down all the Shichi Bukai, and tells Luffy what's new in the world because of him. Yassop and Ussop meet, cry, and start shooting Luffy to see who's a better shot, Zoro and 1st mate man spar, Chopper is gangbanged by Robin and Nami while Sanji watches... the end.
Trying to think of stuff that happens after the immediate future would be really hard considering that these ARCs literally come out of nowhere. There's no real objective set other than to find the One Piece Roger hid. It's so vague a goal that all this stuff can happen randomly.
Hey... didn't Blackbeard's crew suck donkey d*ck? I don't remember them being strong at all.
