One Piece 1064 makes fans debate if Shiryu is stronger than Aokiji
One Piece author Eiichiro Oda recently surprised fans with a sudden fight sparking between Law and Marshall D. Teach. The confrontation, which takes place on Winner Island, also involves the Heart Pirates and some members of the Blackbeard Pirates. One Piece 1064 featured the ongoing battle, which appears to be a very complex situation for Law and his crew. The chapter also revealed that the unknown intruder who froze Chocolate Town and defeated Cracker of the Big Mom Pirates' Sweet Commanders is none other than former Marine Admiral Aokiji. Before One Piece 1064, Aokiji's status was unknown. Fans were only aware that he had left the Marine and started an unspecified affiliation with the Blackbeard Pirates. It has now been revealed that Aokiji became a full-fledged member of the crew. This has generated a discussion within the One Piece fandom. Not long ago, Oda stated that Shiryu is the second strongest individual in the Blackbeard Pirates, second only to Teach himself. Since Aokiji is an incredibly powerful character, fans are now debating whether the number two of the Blackbeard Pirates is Shiryu or the former Admiral.
