The Wano arc has been one of the longest and most revealing that One Piece has hadsince, during the Straw Hats’ journey through this island, many secrets were revealed, giving an unexpected twist to the plot, because in the midst of all the chaos and adventures that took place in this place, Luffy acquired his new transformation : Gear Fifth which served him to defeat Kaido once and for all.
The adventures in Wano were decisive for many of the most important characters in the series have acquired an exponential growthsince some of them managed to awaken the powers of their Devil Fruits or as is the case with Zoro who was able to unconsciously make use of the Conqueror’s Haki, completely surprising everyone with such a demonstration of power.
But these have not been the only events of great relevance that the Wano arc has had, since one of the most controversial moments that the series has had was witnessed on this island, which had caused a lot of discomfort in the followers. However, Eiichiro Oda has clarified this situation recently, ending the controversy that had been unleashed. Next, we tell you the details.
One of the most controversial moments of the Wano arc has been clarified by Eiichiro Oda
It is known that Wano’s story arc had several moments of great controversy, since in this one it was possible to observe all the calamities that the inhabitants of this island had to suffer when Kaido came to power, because his methods were not the most orthodox, so much so that he was able to lock up his own son, Yamato with the enemy Samurai without a pinch of food, demonstrating how perverse this pirate was.
However, the most controversial moment of the Wano arc took place right after Kaido’s defeat, after the situation in Onigashima and the former Yonkou were finally overcome. To celebrate said overthrow, Kozuki Hiyori, Oden’s daughter, was meeting in a conference with several of her followers to whom she reminded all the tyranny his people had to survive for more than 20 yearsand all because of Orochi’s betrayalto which Hiyori dedicated some rather strong words that were criticized by the followers.
Hiyori, in this lecture, defiantly declared the following: “Kurozumi was born to burn”, which caused discomfort among the followers of the series, and not precisely because of Orochi, but because it was taken by the fans as a declaration of war for the whole family Kurozumi, since it could be presumed that the members of this clan who had nothing to do with Orochi’s actions they would have to pay for such actscausing an endless war.
However, Eiichiro Oda took advantage of the SBS section of One Piece volume #105 to clarify this controversial moment in the series and all thanks to a question from a fan, who noticed in a scene where O’Tama was praying over the grave of his parents and they had an inscription with the last name “Kurozumi”, so Oda decided to take advantage to confirm that Tama is actually a descendant of the Kurozumi.just as he clarified that Hiyori’s statements, they only fell on Orochi and not on the members of his clan.
Through the Twitter account called @newworldartur can be seen in greater detail Eiichiro Oda’s response to this great controversy and the lineage of the beloved Tama who was an important part in this fight against Kaido.

Notably Tama was of great importance in being able to defeat Kaido and his minions.since without the help of this little girl none of this would have been possible, since her skills were crucial in reducing the number of men in favor of the Beasts Pirates.
It could be said that Tama Kurozumi with her great bravery and feats managed to expiate the guilt that surrounded the name of his clan Because of Orochi’s unfortunate actions, this young woman has become a symbol of renewal for this family and for the new Wano.
Likewise, during this section of SBS, Eiichiro Oda has also taken the opportunity to reveal Zoro’s family tree, which has been well received by fans, who had already made various hypotheses regarding the lineage of this powerful swordsman.
