You say that Oda has made mistakes and refer to haki,the WCI and Wani arcs.We talked about haki already,a conversation in which you were included,and the result of the conversation was that there is no contradiction related to haki so far,hence no mistake.Of course,like I've said before,if you want to interpret any ambiguous parts as mistakes before they are even proven as such,that is of course a perfectly viable opinion and I respect you thinking so.However,the point of this specific part of thee conversation stemmed from you suggesting that some of the previous established content can't be trusted because of your aforementioned opinion and that is something I have to disagree with.Having an opinion about an ambiguous aspect of the series is one thing and it is perfectly reasonable and perfectly acceptable,as each person is entitled to their own opinion,but treating that opinion as a fact despite it contradicting the content put forth by the author is another.A considerable part of our conversation was spent to determine whether or not the parts about haki were indeed mistakes or not by examining the possibility of contradictions having surfaced over the course of the series,and yet we determined that a contradiction hadn't been made so far.In light of that,I don't see a reason not to trust any part of the existing content,regardless of whether it matched anyone's estimations or is to anyone's liking,including my own. I don't know why you're so intent on generalizing this aspect of the series,but I can't say I agree with it.Not every Japanese person necessarily believes in real life ki,people can believe in real life haki even while not being Japanese,and not every person who believes in real life ki necessary holds the same estimations for kenbunshoku as haki as you or does so to the same extend.You said that our difference in opinions stems from out different views on real life ki and attributed your belief mostly to being Japanese.And yet Kia also believes in real life ki and you attributed that difference in opinions simply to her not being Japanese.Wasn't your Japanese origin only meant to justify your belief in real life ki? In any case,as far as information on how kenbunshoku haki works at the moment,I'm only viewing kenbunshoku haki in the confines of the One Piece world and basing my opinion on the information that is made available in it.As far as any estimation of how kenbunshoku haki will be like in the future,I believe that's less up to a person's culture and more up to the person themselves,as I do not believe that every single Japanese person would hold the same perpspective and to the same extend when the future of kenbunshoku haki is concerned. Our view on mastery simply differs.There are things that each person values,hence there are certain situations that trigger people's instincts and emotions,which in turn can fill up a person's attention capacity and overwrite any reaction that they might have had in a different situation. As for haki,you seem intent on believing that my view of real life ki is responsible for my opinion and call it a bias,but of anything,I think I'm being fair in my judgement of how haki works in the One Piece world.Regardless of my belief as far as real life ki is concerned,I jusged haki based on the information given by the series.I don't believe I've let my opinion of real life ki hold me back from believing or denying anything about haki that has been presented in One Piece.On the contrary,it seems that you have let your belief of real life ki create a bias and affect your view of haki in the One Piece world.Estimations about haki in the future are one thing,but you disregard rules put forth about haki in the series due to your view of ki in the real world.You say that haki and ki are the same from a martial arts perspective but haki has been introduced an energy as tangible as stamina and one that can similarly run out,which doesn't correspond to ki in real life. As for the kairoseki handcuffs,I don't see how it's considered as miss-connecting previous context,it only helped make something that was already acceptable and explainable clearer. The word I used as alternative to nakama was to "friend" though,it was "comrade". I used the word friend precisely because it can be broad to showcase that some words hold different weigh in the eyes of different people. My point is that Oda isn't simply displaying the whole worth and meaning of the word,he's attaching his own worth to the word through the series.That's why people who haven't read One Piece presumably perceive the word "nakama" differently than those who have. Oh,that kenbunshoku haki can only perceive the auras of living begin and attacks made form them is something I quite agree with.And that particular limitation of kenbunshoku is one more reason as to why I don't think Fujitora uses kenbunshoku outside of battle or specific situations and simply relies on his cane and heightened senses. As for kenbunshoku begin the same as eyesight,Fujitora's example is testament as to why it's not the same thing.While the feedback one gets from sight might be able to make the picture one perceives through haki clearer,kenbunshoku has been to not be eyesight dependent through Fujitora.I assume it's your own perspective that led you to believe that the consumption of haki through kenbunshoku is the same as the consumption needed to power the eyes,but I don't see why the two would the same.If anything,the belief that kenbunshoku haki is an almighty power that never runs out,has no blind spots and comes as a package with an equally godlike dodging ability is closer to what I'd describe as "magical" than the view that haki runs out like stamina is. Not all aspects introduced throughout the series are carried until the end of the line,and whether or not details that are carried unti the end of the line have been connected properly is a judgement that would be best suited after a certain point,as the author may sometimes introduce points only to explain them at a later time.Though in any case,contradictions haven't been made yet.So while it's your own decision whether or to like or dislike certain parts of the series of trust Oda from here on out,disregarding established facts without them being contradictory to other parts of the content is a different matter. You still seem to believe that I hold some pro-Oda bias or something of the sort.I've had to mention Oda himself several times throughout this part of the conversation,but the fact is that Oda himself is a factor that I don't take into account when forming my opinions,like you probably already know.My opinions in the conversation so far don't stem from any sort of blind trust,bias or similar notion towards Oda and are instead based on the content that he has put forth,the series itself.As for any pro-Oda notion,you can't kill what doesn't exist in the first place.Of course,as far as I'm concerned,any credit that I give the series is a credit to Oda himself since he's the author,but that doesn't mean that I get ahead of the series and compliment solely Oda himself or create any sort of bias towards him,whether it's positive or negative. It's still too early to tell but I don't think we saw any contradiction.Even the kenbunshoku haki seems to be progressing normally and hasn't turned into a stare-down,considering that Luffy was quickly taken down by Kaido despite having kenbunshoku haki close to Katakuri's level,making the importance of skill match ups more apparent.
