One Piece Cliffhanger Drops Major "D" Meaning Clue

One Piece has been steadily revealing clues about the mysterious "D" in Monkey D. Luffy's name, and the newest chapter of the series has dropped another major clue as to just how notable this letter really is! The initial has become one of the most unexpected mysteries of the series as a whole as following a fan asking about what the letter could mean turned into Oda dropping major teases about Luffy's connection with not only other notable characters who have the same initial, but the overall "Will of D" mystery as a whole. Now it's gotten even more interesting.

With the series now getting ready for the final saga of the manga overall, the newest chapter before Oda went on a Summer hiatus is putting the cap on the final moments of the Wano Country arc. Moving ahead from here to an even bigger future for the manga's story as a whole, the newest chapter of the series has dropped another major clue about this mysterious "D" initial as one of the Elders in the World Government wanted to keep the initial from being printed in Luffy's newest bounty poster following his fight with Kaido and Big Mom

Chapter 1053 of One Piece continues exploring the fallout of the Wano Country arc, and news of Luffy's exploits have already reached the outside world. At Mariejois, one of the Elders is trying to stop the presses before the news reaches the entire ocean and yells at one of his subordinates over the fact that Luffy's picture has not only been updated, but the fact that he told them to remove the "D" initial from Luffy's name. While he doesn't say why, it's clear that this is tied to the fact that Luffy's become a new Emperor following Wano

Now that Luffy's gotten the most prominent position in the seas he's ever had, and not only does his new photo further his ties with the legendary Joyboy (something that will likely get a rise out of the rest of the seas), the "D" initial in his name is just as big of a thorn in the world government's side. It goes to further demonstrate just how important that "WIll of D" truly is, and with the manga kicking off its final saga next, hopefully it won't be too much longer until we get a full explanation for it all.
