Not at all.
And what's your point? That she should need to have a 1:1 interaction with every single member before she joins the crew??
She's the most immersed a character has ever been in the straw hats without officially joining.
Obviously she knows of them, but she doesn't actually know a...
Here are some of the best ones but you need to have finished chapter 179:
From chapter 200 onwards:
Yamao's forced because she's a character introduced out of nowhere in the final stages of a 6 year long saga that's demanding to join the crew, despite not knowing any of them.
Brook and Franky got arcs full of development with the straw hats and had tons of interactions with them that it only...
The funniest thing about this whole shebang is that Yamao stans are going crazy over her merely stating her plans to do something which Carrot has literally already been doing for the last 200 chapters.
Carrot: Is accepted into the straw hat's adventure and travels with them on their ship
If Carrot dominates discussions, hater's minds and one piece popularity this much whilst being "irrelevant", just imagine the power she'll hold when Oda focuses on her extensively. :choppawhat::choppawhat:

Yeah Giyuu's cool. He's not one my favourite hashiras but...
I spoiled myself on a death or two, but nothing that would impact my reading experience much. Good to know. I am looking forward to seeing more of it. I am gonna check the manga, but for some reason the art sometimes looks odd to me.
Yeah, it can be a bit off putting. I personally didn't mind...
Interesting list. Such a range of personalities in your top 4. You've got loud, loveable weirds like Ino and Kyo, but also like the quiet Giyuu and Nezuko. Something I really appreciate about Gotouge's characters is that they can all be so different and opposites yet still so interesting
