Katakuri, as we know is a member of the Big Mom Pirates, and has the second highest authority in the crew. He is, without a doubt, the best villain as well as one of the best characters in One Piece.
In the most recent chapters of One Piece, Katakuri, for the first time, admitted he respected Luffy and even thinks Luffy is on his level. This shows how deep Katakuri’s and Luffy’s relationship has become, as rivals. It resembles the relationship between Gol D. Roger and Whitebeard.
Roger and Whitebeard were enemies, as well as friends, and acknowledged each other’s strength. Their relationship went beyond the bond of blood. But does this mean this relationship will be the reason why Katakuri will join the crew?
A part of me thinks no, and another part of me thinks yes, he will join the Strawhat Grand Fleet. There are two reasons behind why I think he will join them and I will explain them as we move on.
