The land of giants – Elbaf is considered the most powerful country in the world due to its fighting power. And it seems this is where the Straw Hats would go next.
We know Usopp needs to go to the Land of Warriors as he specifically said so after seeing Dorry and Brogy in Little Garden.
In One Piece Chapter 1071 we see that Kid Pirates have reached Elbaf. And we know that Vegapunk has ties to the Giants, so it’s likely that the Strawhats will ship to Elbaf after Egghead Island.
Here are some things to look forward to in Elbaf:
The Giants have a very clear Viking aesthetic. And another person who has a Viking aesthetic is Red-Haired Shanks. Shanks’ ship – the figurehead of the Red Force is a dragon, and he is most likely based on Erik the Red, a famous Viking pirate who discovered Greenland.
We know that the Red Hair Pirates have a history with the Kid Pirates. Last we saw Shanks talk about claiming the One Piece and sailing near Wano, so it’s likely we’ll finally see his plan in Elbaf now that the Kid Pirates are there too.
Usopp must also finally meet his father Yasopp. So maybe we will see Usopp become a brave sea warrior and meet his father in Elbaf.
In Whole Cake Island we learned that the Prince of Elbaf – Loki fell in love with Lola, but things didn’t go well. That plot could come into play in Elbaf, and who knows, maybe even Big Mom is involved. After all, we don’t really know if Kaido and Big Mom are dead or alive.
Jaguar D Saul
The flame-scarred man the boy was looking for is most likely Saul, since we know that Saul took refuge in Elbaf after being injured by Aokiji.
That means we’ll see Nico Robin reunite with Saul, and this time she’ll show him how many friends she’s made. I would love to hear Saul’s laugh again – SHISHISHISHISHI.
Feast of the Winter Solstice
In Big Mom’s flashback, we learned about the winter solstice festival in Elbaf. And we all know how much Luffy loves festivals, so maybe it’s the time of year the Giants fast before the festival.
In addition, the festival is held to thank the sun. So it is likely that we will see the sun god Nika – Luffy in action in Elbaf.
