if ur thoery is right then it woulth be more like tis luffy lazy ass gonne explor more fo the world while coby is sitting at a desk doing all the paper work
Where are you getting that he used haki to cut mr 1? You need haki to harm transient devil fruit users like logias, ones who have a non-tangible body. You cant cut fire, steel is a physical thing and can be cut, you just need a strong enough blade. You don't need haki to physically harm a steel devil fruit user any more than you need it to harm a rubber one, both offer resistance to damage of certain types but can be overcome without haki.
Zoro did use mantra in arabasta, the issue is mantra does not empower your attacks. this is why I think oda didnt have haki completely ironed out yet at that point. I really dont think shanks attack on the sea king had any planned significance at that time in the story, if it did oda really is a god.
Lol it was haki becuese u need to use haki to cut the slice fruit dont forget mr 1 isent steel fruit its slice fruit slicing means he cane cut evry ting without haki(the breath for exmple) u woudent be able to do any ting about it becuese no matter how strong u are or your blade it woulth just be like how it went between mr 1 and zoro at the start before he used The breath
Haki #1 (breath of all things)Mantra wasn't what hit mr 1. it was haki #2 the armor color one. Which Rayleigh explains above. Already gave you both examples last post.
How I see it, Loin's song is his only known Haki imbued attack (Armor), cut mr. 1 and cut Kuma's hard unknown steel. He didn't use that attack against Enel so makes sense.
Edit: I don't know about Asuru attack this could probably lead others to believe theres more to Zoro then just haki.
So in the new world will probely see more devil fruits then before becuese now they cane fight them
I'm going to shoot myself. 4weeks break is like living in the dark.
