after this arc, will luffy have surpassed/matched shanks?
After reading what the frog-lady said at the end of 388, it kinda got me thinking. The strawhats are attacking perhaps the most defended marine island on the grandline, and they are fighting against CP9, the strongest agents in the marines. Plus, i have a feeling that CP9's last resort may be to use the buster call against the straw hats directly, so if that happens and the straw hats win like they always do, they would've defeated one of the 3 marine generals.
Plus, they're most likely going to get a bitching ship out of this to replace the going merry.
I can't really imagine any other pirate on the grandline doing something of this scale, not even the shichibukai.
so what do you think, will luffy have matched shanks in strength/fame after this arc?
Re: after this arc, will luffy have surpassed/matched shanks
first i don't think it's the most defended marine island.... far from that.... it's "only" a great symbol so nobody with something in their head would attack it like that (in fact, nobody did :lol: )
second, cp9 agents are very strong, but i don't think it was stated that they were the strongest ... ??....
i think that there are more powerful elite marine regiments out there, under the commands of the admirals....
and i don't think they would be able to survve a buster call right now :? ... at least if shanks doesn't help them ^^
