Tama isn't fighting her animals are or her Smiles, neither of which are coming with her
Nice one ignoring the rest of my post. Who doen't want to have an honest discussion?
Yes, she can fight and she has a unique Monster Hunter / Kaiju Tamer niche on top of being a ninja
Yet again, Luffy has never stated that his nakama need to be strong or even know how to fight, and even if he did Tama has proven her worth in the battlefield by saving other stawhats lifes, not only that, she left main land Wano, infiltrated Onigashima and turned the tides of the battle by herself. What more do you want from her?
be honest, is it that she's missing some super big bazongas and a big CoC to go with it? :giogio:

I addressed your entire post lol still ignoring Tamas own words and Luffys own words mate, man your sad.

- Those Animals are not coming with her mate nor is she becoming Ash
- One Piece is shonen mate, all of Luffys crewmates can fight and they need to fight Blackbeard the Dark strawhats you need to be able to fight, if Vivi comes back to join guess what she is gonna have to fight
- Non of that proves anything Wano is setup for this with Zoans and everything, all those bits she need others for that are not leaving Wano.

She need the grifters/smile users, she need Wano animals, she need others to protect her, she is built for Wano and to situational (also not a greta fruit to fight with), she is not fighting she is participating just like Momonosuke unless you want to say him biting Kaido once is him fighting.

Luffy fought back against Higuma a man like 3 times his size and even below his boot refused to stop fighting and defend Shanks, stabbed his own eye to try and prove his courage, literally has a god tier devil fruit, spoke and talked in a manner that got Shanks to put his faith & will into Luffy, with his crew even saying to give Luffy a chance...Shanks refused to let Luffy join his crew/go out to sea he was too young and the sea is dangerous.

And honestly mate the last bit shows it all if you think thats the only reason people support Yamato or hell even Carrot then you're just a pathetic.

You don't want to be honest, everyone would have a better time just ignoring you.
 
Can you check the one for Whole cake please? And conclude if that place is normal for a background character?
You mean her having same number of panels in WCI as Kiku in Wano is impressive?
Post automatically merged:

Man.. watching an entire chapter (888+889) of clear character brilliance, with a huge emphasis on the actual character .. and thinking that this is just an introduction for something that was almost one shooted later in the story

You don't fail to amaze me.. The wake up call will be violent for you guyz..

I wonder what you guys will say once you see that Carrot sneaked on the ship: "well she will just leave in the next island, it doesn't matter" > That kind of denial ? :gokulaugh:
So it was meh?
 
Momo stopping Onigashima felt like back when oda would have the new nakama take part in the final fights of their arc:
- Zoro saved Luffy and Zoro cut Krieg
- Nami stole buggy’s limbs
- Usopp took out Kuros VC on the same page as luffy took out kuro
- Sanji rescued Luffy and gin stopped Krieg cause of Sanjis kindness

Is C4N would say, Momo rescuing all of Onigashima and falling unconscious with Luffy is quite the nakama moment

I'd say it's just more of a parallel and contrast with Kaidou.

You keep ignoring my point that strong animals are not Wano exclusive. Almos every island has them.
Laboon is a thing
Little Garden had Dinos
Drum Island had the Lapahn
Alabasta had Banana Gators
Skypiea had a giant Snake
Mihawk had those baboons with swords (just like Wano)
Luffy developted Gear 4 fighting animals
The Kraken is a thing
Zunisha is a thing
Dragons exist in the canon
Oda stated to have enjoyed desinging the animals in Strong World
Do you really think that Elbaf isn't going to have some crazy fauna?
Saying that Tama power is only usefull in Wano is simply not true, it is useful trueout the grand line and it has great utility outside of fighting on top of that. Luffy himself said it was a very usefull power to have.

YO WTF she's 8 years old so why would you suggest that?
:whitepress:
because the main reasons why people want Yamato to join is because of powerscalling and/or because they find her attractive :odenugh:

Tama already has a dynamic with most of the crew and fits the role of Pirate Apprentice perfectly (she's even the same age as kid Shanks), but she isn't a fanservice or "waifu" character so she gets mostly ignored in the nakama discussions. Just telling it how it is.
I like how Yamato's character has been developing, but I can also see she isn't written to be a strawhat.
 
Basically this summarizes what I was saying about Yamato's treatment last chapter
I'm totaly aware she'll probably join but I'm not sure what Oda's going for here
The difference is obvious that Nami & Robin WERE part of the crew BEFORE their main antagonists got resolved. It’s like Luffy trying to save them and take them back to the crew, heck even Nami asked Luffy for help and Robin said she wanted to live and go out to seas with the crew. Yamato has not been a crew member yet, but still she does her best to help the alliance to prove her worth.

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 safe and their stories are wrapped up, the post-arc story can move back to Franky/Yamato and deal with their joining.

I'm also pretty sure Oda's going to do another Oden parallel with Yamato's joining where Luffy, like Whitebeard acknowledging Oden, knows that Yamato wants to join but he wants her to prove herself in some way first. Most likely he's going to push her to accept that she can look up to Oden and carry on his spirit without literally being him before she can join, likely mirroring that Luffy will reject the Joyboy identity and asserting that he is his own person.

But if she doesn’t join, it means that all your analyzing skills are shit and for nothing. It means that you’ve been spouting nonsense all the time and that you do not understand shit about writing and analyzing writing.
Still no:

Those are STILL opportunities.Those are still stools for potential development.

So.. no.. Nothing I say will dissapear, just the conclusion.

If you want an analogy let's took science as an example:

Me being wrong would be the same as an scientist witnessing apples falling from the sky and concluding that a force called "gravity" was existing and describing that force.. when in fact gravity is something a bit different. Would this means that the apple would dissapear ? No.. Would this means that there was nothing discovered ? No.

Only the conclusion would be false, the rest, would still be relevant.

Any kind of writer could create a fantastic story for Carrot with what Oda created and placed in the story. That's the power of storytelling.. sometimes, its unconscious.

But with Oda, it's most likely not.
I for one can say, that in case that you are right(0.00001% that happens), I will read your entire blog and try to learn from it. I will even apologize here to you and except that you are the superior analyst.
Well... I can't wait :)
Is C4N would say, Momo rescuing all of Onigashima and falling unconscious with Luffy is quite the nakama moment
Well, not really, it was not focused enough on Momo for me. But it's close enough yeah.

------------

Also concerning Tama (I' haven't read everything) there is only ONE world where Tama joins, it's that if MOMO joins as well. Tama and Momo have been linked throughout the arc, where one goes, the other followed. At this point Tama is like a young reteiner for Momo but also one of his best friend.

So if Momo goes with them, expect Tama to sneak on board as well. Not only that, but expect Tama to do the same thing Momo has: Using the mature mature fruit of Shinobu to grow.
 
Just so you guyz know:

Here are the three next way Carrot could be confirmed:

A - A reaction from Carrot on the victory of Luffy + a flash back of Pedro: This would confirm that Carrot is linking her future to Luffy and Pedro's words. Basically, it has to happen next chaptern after that it will be too late.

If that doesn't happen the next thing to look up for would be:

B - A couple of panel focused on Carrot doing a introspection during the Banquet or between now and the departure of the SH: Carrot was defeated and humiliated.. there is therefore high chances for her to self-reflect on her capacities. If that happens, it will also be a confirmation as Carrot would be linking her capacities toward the future and her life on the seas. This focusing can also take the form of a discussion with an ally (Wanda or Nekomamushi). In other word if there is a questionnement from Carrot's part about herself, the seas, Pedro's words or the SH, this will be the confirmation that Oda is preparing Carrot to join the crew.

If that doesn't happen the next thing to look up for would be:

C - The very end of the arc: I've talked about that HERE. Basically the very end of the arc will be the last moment for Carrot to join by sneaking on the ship. If Carrot is seen on the ship (willingly or not), this will confirm a future recrutment. If not.. This will be the end of the theory.


Those three moments would confirm Carrot as a future crewmate. To sum up.. any couple of panel focusing mainly on Carrot would be a confirmation. For two reasons:

1. Because Oda would have no reason to do those if the story of Carrot was finished
2. Because those are potential setups for a development

it was brought up by hitetsu
That Ace promised to return, not that he would take her with him, again that was never brought up in real time or made a big deal EVER
She wants a free Wano, just like Nami, and she doesn't want to be hungry anymore, which will happen when she gets to eat Sanji's food every day.
She brings up not wanting to starve right after talking about wanting a Wano with Momo as the Shogun, there is no pause or anything that would imply that she is talking about 2 different things and that they arent related, especially when it aligns with Luffy's promised of giving her a Wano where she wont starve, these 2 scenes make no sense if she is leaving anyway. And to finish it off, according to Oda in one piece 10th treasures Usopp will ALWAYS be the weakest SH, so unless you think Tama is stronger than Usopp(wich is insanity) then she isnt joining
 
Tama and Momo have been linked throughout the arc, where one goes, the other followed. At this point Tama is like a young reteiner for Momo but also one of his best friend.
That's just simply not true.
You're attempting to reverse engineer the "Tama and Momo will parallel Shanks and Buggy" theory, but in reality, they weren't even near each other or had anything to do with each other during all of Acts 1 and 3. On top of that, one of the few exchanges they had during Act 2 was Tama refusing to use the right onorificts and acknowledge Momo as her superior. Why would you say she is like a reteiner?
Yamato feels way more like a reteiner to me. Not saying she'll be, but she has an idealized vision of him due to Oden's journal and the fact that he's Oden's son. She protects him but also pushes him to be a better version of himself. She only appeared during Act 3 but already has way more interactions and a dynamic with Momo than Tama ever did.
Saying that Tama is linked to Momo just sounds desingenuous when Yamato is the one that has spent more than half her paneltime with him.

That Ace promised to return, not that he would take her with him, again that was never brought up in real time or made a big deal EVER
Come on now, Ace's promise wasn't "to return" it was clearly stated to be to join his crew and sail with him. It even got it's own panel
highlighting the promise aspect of it.

He did, go check the page of Luffy's promise again, Ace promised to return and make Wano a place where she can eat all she wanted, he promised to take her then IF she had grown up into a bewitching Kunoichi, those are 2 different promises
