ONE PIECE: how was Yamato in the first drafts? No mace, here she is with the sword

by Harry Brown

With Eiichiro Oda’s one-month hiatus, Weekly Shonen Jump has found another way to give its readers their weekly dose of ONE PIECE. In fact, the Road to Laugh Tale project has started, a sort of collection of information, summaries and drafts prepared by Oda himself, in order to take stock of the saga and the manga.

Last week, Kaido’s original hybrid form was shown, very different from what we know. Before reaching the final point, Yamato also had to go through several transformations, both in the body and in the character and expressions. With ONE PIECE: Road to Laugh Tale volume 3, the penultimate of this series, the Original Yamato in the Oda drafts. Some characteristic features have always been there, such as the horns, which however have occasionally changed shape and position.

The biggest details are definitely the expressions that Yamato has had a long transformation process and above all the absence of the mace, which in certain phases was a sword. In some situations, she is seen fighting in human form even with kicks, perhaps too much like Sanji. Also for its hybrid form there is some dedicated space in the latest drafts available below. Prefer one of the prototype versions or the Definitive Yamato?

But in the first volume there was the return of Poneglyph with a very interesting recap.
