One Piece Chapter 955 was a great chapter for me. The chapter gave us a lot of interesting information. As we learned from the previous chapter:
+Orochi learned that Udon has been compromised and Hiyori is still alive and in the Northern graveyard. This puts her on the opposite direction from Port Tokage where Luffy’s group is present.
+Franky is building ships for 10 thousand people and not just 4 thousand. This means they will have more people joining to depart for Onigashima.
+The rebels who were caught by Orochi are still in prison. Kinemon’s people were unable to free them. I don’t think we will see them sit out the war.
+Orochi has 10 thousand men which is more than twice the number of rebels. Orochi would think that the rebels currently only have the pirates and prisoners from Udon. It could not scare him.
Now a couple of things from previous chapters. Hiyori stated that she wanted to kill Orochi herself. We know she stayed with Kyoshiro for quite some time, so she may have learned swordplay decent enough. As for Kyoshiro himself, it is heavily hinted/speculated that he is Denjiro and will betray Orochi.
This makes me believe that she asked Kyoshiro (Denjiro) to directly/indirectly inform Orochi of these 2 pieces of info to bait him. Yes, Hiyori wants to make herself a bait, she wants Orochi to find her, after that, she will finish Orochi herself. Orochi won’t take precautions because he thinks Hiyori is just a weak girl.
Why do I think so? I think there are 2 things hinting at this.
1: The timing of when Orochi learns of Udon’s status. It’s already the last day when we see Orochi getting this info. But we know that Udon fell many days back and everyone in Kinemon’s group learned this long ago. If this informant was someone from that group then Orochi would have learned this long ago too. But Hiyori separated from Kawamatsu and Zoro only recently and would have enough time to get this info to Orochi by the last day.
2: Moreover, the important 2 pieces of info that were left out if the informant/traitor was with Kinemon’s group or Udon group. Firstly, He says Hiyori is alive but doesn’t mention anything about Momonosuke and everyone is well aware of this in both Kinemon and Udon groups. Secondly, We know that Nekomamushi will be arriving with Zou’s forces and everyone in Kinemon’s group is well aware of this. If this informant was with them then why didn’t Orochi mention these important pieces of info. Instead, since Hiyori has only met Kawamatsu, he would tell her the story of his escape, and she would learn of Udon’s fall but Zoro is hardly a person to go around spilling the plan.
Another important thing from previous chapters I would like to speculate on is, the person who saved Law was not Drake but rather Kyoshiro (Denjiro). Law says that whatever the person was planning, he is in on it. And I do think that Kyoshiro (Denjiro) has a plan to use Law.
Now let’s get into the meat of what Hiyori and Kyoshiro are planning.
Kyoshiro informs Orochi of Udon’s fall and makes him believe Kaido is untrustworthy. Orochi will try to squash it himself because he thinks the rebels currently only have the pirates and prisoners from Udon. He will gather up all his 10 thousand men and everyone who was guarding the caught rebels and then strike Port Tokage before they set out.
Kyoshiro’s plan for Law is to free the prisoners when Orochi’s men have departed and to lead a second army behind them. Kyoshiro can’t do this himself as Orochi would not let him leave his side. Moreover, Law’s power is one of the best to free a vast number of people from chains.
Moreover, just like Kyoshiro, There may be more people who are pretending to support Orochi counted in his 10 thousand men, but will betray him on Kyoshiro’s command. This will increase the strength on their side even more. So, that’s what I believe they are planning.
