I do believe that it's pretty much guaranteed that the crew will gain their last two members in the NW, though. Maybe one of them will even be a native from the Wano country, now that we've started to learn more about the location.....

The only thing I have problem with that is that the samurai would be in conflict with Zoro as far as character type. Even though Brook is a swordsman, he was really a different "class-type" compare to Zoro. Zoro, however, despise been called as such, is basically a Post-Sengoku Period samurai. Unless they you are talking about a character that always wears family/clan armor the character will share too much similarity with Zoro IMO.

Agree, but the fact that there are two Kitetsu-s above it makes me think that those two other swords would eventually show up.

Beside, with the mention of Wano country and how Zoro is a samurai himself. I beginning to think that Zoro's master and Wado Ichimoji are both related to Wano Country. As I said, you don't become a well-known great sword without any history and in this case, Wado Ichimoji, is still a much better sword than Sandai Kitesu.
