That’s nice of you to say, but I haven’t directed my fury your way because I think you’re respectful even if I disagree with your opinion…if you deserved to be treated like a bitch the way @dizzy2341 and several others do, you wouldn’t like me either and you’d be right not to
Shanks and Buggy were 9 year old in Roger's crew, Tama is 8. Luffy also didn't mention anything about her age, so it is not about age, it's about being a ninja with cool skills. Even thought it's kinda suspicious that she's getting paired with Shinobu, I want Tama to have a childhood of adventure on the sea. She already trained for years while starving with that goal in mind, poor thing.
