Hello. Maybe I didn’t look far enough, but I haven’t seen many people talk about this. I’ve seen theories about how Kuina might still be alive in Wanokuni, that Kuina’s death was fake and she turned into a man by Ivankov for example. Whether this is true or not, I believe the next chapter will have at least something to do with Kuina. Something maybe big. Why? Well in Japanese, you can write a lot of words in numbers using the Japanese pronunciations of each number. There are many ways to pronounce each number as well. If you write Kuina in numbers, you get 917. 9 - ku (one way of pronouncing 9) 1 - i (comes from ‘ichi’ or ‘itsu’) 7 - na (comes from ‘nana’) 917 . Do you know what is 917? The next chapter, 917. But there’s more. Although translated scans come out earlier, Shonen Jump usually comes out on Mondays. There’s a break next week so if you look on the calendar, you see that the next chapter will come out on September 17th. 9/17 Chapter 917! Of course I don’t think Oda doesn’t decide when to release Shonen Jump, and he certainly can’t decide what day a certain date would land on. But don’t you think its too big of an opportunity for him to miss? Don’t you think its too big of an coincidence that: we’re in a country with lots of swords Kuina was very skilled with the sword Kuina = 917 It is chapter 917 Released on 9/17 It would be a real bummer if she doesn’t at least get mentioned.
