A play has now launched the highly anticipated final saga of Eiichiro Oda’s long-running series, and the first chapter of this new phase has confirmed that a fan-favorite character has suddenly disappeared. It’s been so long since Luffy and the others landed on the remote shores of Wano that one of the main questions fans have had about the Wano Country arc is what’s going on in the outside world. After the upheaval teased with the Reverie ending cliffhanger, it seems like a lot more happened than fans might have realized.
The ultimate saga of A play officially began with the final chapter of the series, and it did so with a bang as fans finally got an update on what happened in the outside world. The fate of Sabo and the Revolutionaries after the Reverie was officially revealed, and sadly, there was a much more negative fallout than fans might have expected. Because while Sabo and the others were confirmed to be fine, the chapter also sadly confirms that Princess Vivi Nefertari disappeared after her father’s death.
Chapter 1054 of A play revisits Marine Headquarters, and it is here that Sakazuki reveals that Sabo has since become a major hero to the people of the world for killing Vivi’s father, Cobra. It’s considered a big deal as the Nefertari family is one of the original 20 families who created the world government in the first place, but the most intriguing detail comes shortly after as it was also revealed that Vivi had disappeared after the death of his father. Details of his disappearance are scarce, but it is revealed that it happened at the same time.
Given what we know of Sabo and the Revolutionaries, and Alabasta’s secret ally ship with Luffy and the Straw Hats, it’s hard to believe these two characters were taken out of the equation just like that. Given the mysterious nature of her disappearance and the timing of the case, it’s not hard to connect the dots and theorize that Vivi willingly left with the revolutionaries as part of a larger plan.
It’s definitely a tease that will pay off as the final saga continues, so it’s only a matter of time. What do you think of Vivi’s disappearance? Is she working with someone to deceive the government? Could she be in real danger? Let us know all your thoughts on this in the comments! You can even contact me directly about all things anime and other cool stuff @Valdezology on Twitter!
