There is no pirate more famous than Gol D. Roger. The pirate who traveled beyond the Great Line will once again take on relevance in Eichiro Oda’s manga.
According to statements by the mangaka, compiled by the Twitter account Newworldartur, Roger’s interaction with a mysterious baby is a situation that will regain notoriety in the future of the manga. It is about one of the children of the Oden region, who today are fighting against Kaido in the endless arc of the country of Wano.
The interaction is brief, but it hints that there are more secrets behind Roger’s past in this part of the world, including a key clue to something even bigger, the One Piece. With this in mind, we must wait to learn more details of the adventure of Luffy and his friends, and to finally have a resolution to the battle of the pirates.

No necklace yet
Gol D. Roger’s pearl necklace removal in the animated version of One Piece still has resonance with One Piece fans. The pearl necklace reference affects fans because it takes away a bond with one of the most beloved characters, Portgas D. Ace.
The popular and sadly deceased pirate brother in Luffy’s life and son of Gol D. Roger always had an oversized pearl necklace in his outfit, being part of his iconic selection of items.
Interesting that the anime removed the Ace-like pearl necklace from young Roger’s design and just replaced it with his foulard/scarf thing pic.twitter.com/HfBGcImn5N

With this reference removed, some annoyance on the part of the fans has been shown in the networks for the decision, although it is not too much or oversized, it is striking that they have chosen this route for the Wano arch.
This situation must be added to the fact that Roger has appeared with both outfits in combination in the manga, but that his pearl necklace has not been shown in the animated edition. All this could well be one more sample of a fanatic that misses Ace a lot in One Piece after his tragic death.
