Fans of One Piece can finally breathe a sigh of relief after Eiichiro Oda revealed a long-awaited fact about Shanks in One Piece 1082. For a while, many rumors were circulating about the successor to the Pirate King, with many speculating that Shanks would follow in Roger’s footsteps to become the next Pirate King. This speculation was based on the fact that Shanks possessed a similar resemblance and ability to Roger. However, Eiichiro Oda has put these rumors to rest by revealing Shanks’ true goal in chapter 1082 – and it’s not to become the Pirate King or find One Piece. Rather, it’s to find Luffy.
This revelation came as a shock to many readers, especially considering Shanks gave up the pursuit of One Piece, a treasure coveted by all pirates, to focus on Luffy’s future. However, it’s important to note why Shanks took this path – when Roger’s crew was disbanded, Roger entrusted Shanks with a message to find someone who could surpass him. This message left Shanks in tears of joy, as he couldn’t believe what Roger had entrusted him with. Shanks was unsure if he had what it takes to execute Roger’s final wish.
In chapter 1082, Eiichiro Oda confirmed that Shanks’ true goal was to find Roger’s successor, which he believes to be Luffy. However, this doesn’t mean that Luffy and Shanks won’t fight. In fact, it has been predicted that they will eventually face each other to determine who the strongest is.

Fans of the series can now look forward to seeing how the story between Luffy and Shanks pans out and whether Shanks can fulfill Roger’s ultimate wish.
