Was Shanks an Emperor when he lost the arm?

No. Shanks was recognized as an Emperor four years before Luffy started his voyage, 6 Years after he gave Luffy his hat.

When was this stated? I remember Whitebeard saying that everyone was curious as to why he came back from the east blue, missing and arm, which implies he was a big enough deal back then that Whitebeard noticed.

In ch 957 "Ultimate" when we got the bounties, it was stated that shanks was recognized as a yonko 6 years ago (so 4 years before the story starts, 6 years after shanks lost his arm and gave luffy his hat)

He was on Roger's crew as a young Kid, Whitebeard being a fatherly type of person would have noticed and cared about him, 100% would have made sure Roger was taking care of Shanks right. So Whitebeard would be well aware of Shanks

you can read a new chapter of one piece once a week unless it is a break week, in which case you can read the funny edit of pudding saying "oda... is taking a break !!" and sanji devastated out in the rain

I feel like it's almost inevitable we'll get a flashback where Dragon has saved Luffy a handful of times while keeping his distance. & that when we do finally meet him he drops the tough guy act and turns out to be just as big a goof as the rest of his family.

Tragic backstory pending.

Theres no way Dragon isnt incredibly goofy, hes probably just embarassed of his real personality or something. Theres definitely going to be a scene similar to the one in Spaceballs where they walk in on Dark Helmet playing with dolls.

Ah, this does help fill in the "How'd he lose his arm that easily" issue that I've thought about sometimes, given how insanely strong we've seen One Piece characters be, and how the Yonko are on a whole different level themselves. But a lot of powering up can happen over 6 years, so as long as Shanks was a ways away from Yonko-status back then I think it all adds up just fine.

Officially it won't come out until May 9th due to golden week, but raw leaks and a fantranslation will likely come out much earlier, possibly even tomorrow, as we got the usual spoiler leaks a couple of days ago.

Thinking on it, most characters we've seen become real badasses trained for years or had talent from youth or both, though obviously we've seen many people go from kinda badass to really badass.

Coby is probably the character with the most meteoric rise, from total nerd loser to King poo poo of gently caress mountain in less than 3 years.

He should be still a mysterious badass but with some silly gimmick like Vergo's food clinging on his face

Didn't Usopp and Chopper mention docking recently when the Franky tank they were in suddenly grew legs when one of the Numbers attacked them?

There's the Franky Shogun already but there's no way the Thousand Sunny won't transform into a giant mech at some point. Oda loves mechs and Franky won't let him or us down!

there is 100% unmentioned features of the Thousand Sunny. Franky learned a lot of things from Vega Punk's lab and I feel like we've only scratched the surface. plz let the thousand sunny be a mega buster he can attach

General Franky has shown up a couple times but I'm not sure there's been a full-on kaiju fight yet

The tank they were in ejected them to build battle Franky who I think right before said “it’s time for docking” and they got stars in their eyes

Alvidia is another big one. Went from just another no-name pirate captain to the hypercompetent top lieutenant of one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea.

Tbh you can just watch the anime and get a perfect ending. Aside from Hisoka vs Chrollo but I never really got the hype for that fight.

Technically you don’t really need the rest of the manga, the anime had a perfectly serviceable ending to the series

Though if the artist is having so many health problems as of late maybe he should either hire an assistant or let his wife handle it (he is married to the creator of Sailor Moon after all).
