Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. In this post, I’ll be discussing what is the identity of Momonosuke’s sister Hiyori? Is she OTama or is she Komurasaki? This is one of the ongoing mysteries of the One Piece universe. We know that Hiyori Kozuki must have survived because her body wasn’t found, but whether she too time travelled or not remains to be seen.
Let’s begin this post regarding the Identity of Momonusuke’s sister – Komurasaki or OTama
As we saw in the flashback, Toki Kozuki was the one who sent Momonosuke Kozuki and others into the future. But it was not revealed whether Toki Kozuki sent Hiyori Kozuki into the future as well or not.
At that time she was still an infant. I’ll be discussing both the scenarios of Hiyori Kozuki being OTama and also she being Komurasaki. First of all, let us discuss the scenario of her being OTama. Toki couldn’t send her with Momonusuke because she wouldn’t survive the war as she was just an infant.
So, she had to send her somewhere between 12 and 16 years ahead in the future to ensure that she and her retainer wouldn’t be recognized in Wano, and she would have some proper time to grow as well.
Her retainer could easily be Tenguyama Hitetsu who also revealed that he’s been waiting for someone and that could be Kinemon and others.
Thus, this makes Hiyori’s age about 8 years right now which sits in perfectly with OTama’s age. OTama was in Wano from a year before Ace arrived. So, when Ace would have arrived in Wano she would be around 4-5 years old.
It does make a lot of sense if this turns out to be the case. That being said, this is not the only scenario that exists. The second scenario on which everyone seems to be focusing on is Komurasaki being Hiyori Kozuki. Komurasaki is the most prominent prostitute of Wano country.
She is known as the most beautiful woman in the country and Shogun Kurozumi Orochi seems to have a liking for her, and that too a big one.
In of the recent chapters, we saw Momonusuke Kozuki revealing that his sister would be 26 years old by now. This was revealed in the same chapter in which Komurasaki debuted and that certainly is strange because I think Oda is making this way too obvious at this point.
This could be a hint that Hiyori Kozuki did not time travel at all. Also, Komurasaki’s age seems to be around 26 as well.
She too has been looked after by a certain guardian known as Kyoshiro. It was revealed in One Piece chapter 932 that Kyoshiro has been looking after Komurasaki since she was a kid. He has, in simple words, looked after her like a parent. This could mean that Kyoshiro is another retainer of the Kozuki family? Or maybe he took her in as a party of his family and since he cares about his family deeply, he protects her. This seems to be a case similar to Tenguyama Hitetsu and OTama.
Also, in One Piece chapter 932, we saw Komurasaki revealing that she is the daughter of a samurai openly. Well, Oden Kozuki was certainly a Samurai as well.
So, this could be the scenario. Toki Kozuki could easily have handed over Hiyori Kozuki to Kyoshiro and told him to live under hiding and survive and gather intel on Orochi.
Kyoshiro has managed to bring her up although his upbringing might not seem morally correct as she is now a prostitute.
However, there could easily have been a reason behind this as well. But most importantly, he knows almost everything about not only Kurozumi Orochi but also Yonko Kaido. Kyoshiro is deeply involved in the affairs of Wano. Kyoshiro’s family doesn’t include blood-related members as he revealed those who have shared a cup of sake with him become his family. This is a simple answer to those who might have thought if he was a retainer how could he possibly have a family. So, it seems clear that Komurasaki is Hiyori Kozuki.
But if I remember correctly, OTama got herself into trouble when she openly talked about Kozuki family in the open knowing that mentioning their name is forbidden.
Even though most fans think that Komurasaki is Hiyori Kozuki it seems that both of them could be Hiyori but the odds seem to be favouring Komurasaki more just because Oda hinted about Hiyori’s age via Momonusuke. So, let us see who among them is the real Hiyori Kozuki.
