In the last moments of life, Oden asked the Nine Red Bao to help realize the dream of opening Wano country to the outside world. Why does Oden insist on opening Wano and what will happen if this becomes a reality?
Here are things that could happen if the kingdom Wano was successfully opened in One Piece:
1. The Wano samurai can go to the outside world
Perhaps this is one of the main goals that Oden wants to open Wano. By With the current rules, all Wano residents are prohibited from leaving the country. While, Wano has a strong samurai army, just look at the Nine Red Fox group will see this clearly. But they can’t carelessly get these troops off the border because of the old rules.
Oden predicted that there would be a great battle, and he was ready to open Wano. It seems that Oden actually planned to send the samurai army to help Joy Boy. This can be done if Luffy and his allies win at Onigashima.
2. The new Joy Boy can easily get information about Poneglyph
This seems to be one of Oden’s first hopes. Joy Boy’s successor will definitely need Poneglyph in Wano. But it’s hard for Joy Boy’s successor to find Poneglyph if Wano is still closed to the world. The opening of Wano will make it easier for the new Joy Boy to find Poneglyph. Perhaps even Oden had planned to help translate it, just as he did with Rogers’ group.
Now the supposed new Joy Boy – Luffy is at Wano. But he still couldn’t find the Poneglyph he was looking for.
3. Wano technology can spread to the world
Wano has certain technologies, such as the handling of Sea Stones. If Wano ends its seclusion, this technology could spread to the world and be freely used by others.
4. Open transactions with other countries
This would be very good for Wano’s economy. VThe opening of the Wano border means there will be a number of people who help migrants into the Wano Sea, including crossing waterfalls and rising whirlpools. This will help bring traders from other countries here to trade.
Currently, Wano also needs help with food and goods from other countries. Especially now Orochi has caused devastating destruction in this country. So, vThe opening of trade could also make Wano more progressive and developed, like Japan after the Meiji Restoration.
5. External threats will return
In the past, Wano has closed itself to protect the country from a great power from the outside world. Now, nIf Wano were to open the door, that great power (apparently the World Government) would target them once again.
This is a risk that needs to be prepared early if Momonosuke becomes the new Shogun in Wano, after Orochi and the Kaido gang are deposed.
