Identity of Sanji's father, Jajji, revealed

Another key fact revealed in the latest issue was, identity of Sanji's father, Jajji. It turned out that Jajji is exactly the opposite of his son and though he is not as good looking as Sanji, he is much wiser than him.

In one of the scenes, Sanji and Jajji battle against each other and it was shown that Sanji was as powerful as his father. There is a significant possibility that Sanji will emerge as even more stronger than his father, who is the leader of the entire Germa 66 and the head of the Vinsmoke family.

Sanji's past and origins explored

Probably the most unexpected revelation from the Big Mam arc, apart from exploring Sanji's past, fans also got to know why Sanji always fights with his feet instead of using hands.

The story also hinted that Sanji might have been bullied as a child by his brothers. Apparently, that is why Sanji had a difficult time trusting and bonding with Zoro, who is his equal in rank among the Straw Hat crew.
