    General & Others Next Strawhat Crew Members and the Grand Fleet

    I know you're just trolling, but it absolutely does not. It means friend, teammate, comrade, etc. You would never use it to refer to yourself.

    Damn you Oda for not having Yamato join already. Now we have to put up with dumb arguments like "Luffy saying he wants 10 nakama (aka friends aka not himself) means he's including himself." This is worse than C4N's conspiracy theories.

    You know, you're right. It's totally different how Brook at first wanted to join, then had to stop himself because there were extenuating circumstances, and how Yamato at first wanted to join then had to stop herself because there were extenuating circumstances. Very different. You're so...

    Brook said yes, then said he couldn't because of his shadow. It's the same as Yamato saying she was going to join Luffy, then saying she needed to remove her shackles first.

    Then Brook never had a refusal either so there's no problem for Yamato. ...

    The "refusal of adventure" is still a thing? Yamato said she couldn't leave because of her exploding shackles, then Luffy solved her problem. It's literally the same as Brook's shadow. For future plot points with Yamato, there's still Vegapunk and his experimentation on Oni/Kaido and what...

    I'm looking forward to every chapter after Wano being: "This is the one where Carrot pops out as the stowaway." Please Oda, have Luffy ask Carrot to join and have her say "Nah, I'm good." Really subvert those "affirmations" or whatever bullshit we're on now.

    On the topic of red herrings, I've seen King's name being brought up now as a potential Robin-type recruit. With the latest chapter, he's apparently been waiting for the return of Joyboy/Luffy. He's also targeted by the World Government and the story behind that, has a unique design that...

    To add on to this, she's pretty similar to Franky at this point. He was also second fiddle to Robin in his own intro saga, and Luffy was more concerned about Robin/Momo than he was about Franky/Yamato, but he still trusted the latter enough to send them to help the former. After Robin/Momo are...

    Yes. We had the Dukes tell the crew that the Minks have a trump card during a full moon and that the Beast Pirates would face the true power of the Minks the next time they fought. Then Carrot shows what the trump card was, the mechanics/strengths/weaknesses of it, and sets the expectation of...

    That is the beauty of the "sneaking on board" argument. You can always just keep pushing it every chapter, and if it doesn't happen, you can just keep saying Oda is waiting for the right opportunity.

    I would need to see something from Carrot herself that gave any indication that she cares as much as Pedro did, or even at all. During the raid, she cared more about revenge than seeing the Straw Hats' mission through of bringing the Dawn to Wano by helping Momo. If Pedro really did leave that...

    Right, because she *checks notes* can hover one night a month assuming the moon is completely visible to her and can only do so for a few minutes, otherwise she risks killing herself or becomes a liability by forcing someone else to rescue her. It certainly isn't like we have Luffy, Sanji...

    Inherited Will is more a motif for the series theme of "Dreams/Ideas never die" which applies to basically everyone. Even belonging/acceptance applies to most, with Zoro and Nami being the only ones it doesn't really apply to. As far as character themes, I'd also say: Usopp: Bravery Chopper...

    I can see the characters for "Unknown...Night Moon" which fits the "I don't know the night" translation. I was more questioning how the article or whatever said it's both Shiranui Yatsuki and Izayoizuki, since I can definitely see the character for Shiranu/"Unknown" but not Iza.

    Isn't Izayoizuki "Moon of the Sixteenth Night," which would be the first night of the waning moon?

    Yep, Yamato seems to have brought or owns traditional sake brewing equipment. While it's not confirmed that she makes sake, there's enough here that I could believe Oda is setting it up like when Jinbe steered the ship during Impel Down. It would also speak to her characterization that she...

    I don't think it's that ridiculous since we have an archaeologist onboard. We've also had the importance of sake in particular be brought up a lot, both with Bink's Sake and the bonding ritual. If the theory that the One Piece is actually sake that's been brewing (which is why Roger said he...

    Ah, another "Robin's not an archeologist" post. Glorious. Your collective work of asserting headcanon over the story is truly your magnum copus.
