Goddamn look at Wyper's hair.

Anyway, I was going to tell the anti-Jinbes GG, but it really wasn't. Spinning around in arguments circles for months gets old fast. Of course, he doesn't even have to actually say yes for me to be right, but having the good old Shishigoomba on the crew would provide me with infinitely more tears to feast on.
>> No. 22112
This shouldn't be about spite.
We should be happy to accept a new member so dedicated to Straw Hat and the crew. Someone who represents the mending heart of a nation scorned by the actions of a corrupt and paranoid surface.
>> No. 22113
I can't say that I like it, but if Jinbe's really here to stay, I trust Oda to make it work.

If this chapter's end is anything to go by, it may turn out better than I expected.

Deal with it.

Nah, I'm joking. Seriously, though, why do people expect women to join the crew? One Piece isn't really feminist in any way, so it isn't that. Oda never said that he wanted more woman, or that women should balance out the men. Hell, on his original crew sketches there was only one woman at all. Why do people want them anyway? All it would really mean would be more fights for them to not have. I doubt Oda is going to change his style any time soon.
>> No. 22117
Oh, Chopper. Not exactly the brightest reindeer in the world, for such a brilliant doctor.

Basically this.

It wouldn't be my first choice, and I hope next chapter he refuses, but I'll be OK with it. I trust Oda.
>> No. 22119
Well, I personally want one because I'm a woman, and it's validating to have people of the same gender as you in your favorite stories. People like seeing people like them. Same reason people get upset when, say, Katara and Sokka are cast as white kids or Oracle's legs are retconned to be fixed. Despite being 50% of the population, women somehow end up being treated like a minority in media so you grab what you can.

Guy generally don't understand that feeling due to the whole sausage festival + maybe 1 token chick (2 if you're lucky) that's the norm in so many forms of media.

I know Oda isn't feminist (though he gets points for breaking away from his old sameface samebody ladies and drawing some girls who looks just as weird as the guys), and I'm not demanding he be. But it would be nice to have another female character.

Canonically, however, people expected a women to join due to Oda's SBS distribution of the Strawhats as a family having an empty spot where the grandma's supposed to be. Therefore, the assumption was that it'd be filled.

But hey, maybe Jinbei's up for it.
>> No. 22120

Family structure, man! We needed a grandma, but I guess we're getting an uncle.

And yeah, as cool as Robin and Nami's powerups are, their lack of big two-page splashes shows that they're still not really in the spotlight, which saddens me. I guess one of the good things about a female crew member would be a sign of him becoming more feminist, but that doesn't seem to be happening. (Not that I'd mind another well-characterized and dangerous lady, even if she didn't get the big fight scenes.)

IN OTHER NEWS I guess Caribou dumped the ladies to make room for more treasure?
>> No. 22121
Jimbei will obviously be the best grandma ever.
>> No. 22122

The question is, how will the strawhats lose the treasure they get from beating him up THIS time?
>> No. 22123
Oh yeah and I forgot to mention, if he's gonna join I'm glad that it happened like this. Very dramatic, very significant.
>> No. 22124

It's nice to see that my Jinbe4newkama movement is gaining even more momentum and popularity than Jinbe4nakama ever did.
>> No. 22125
See I wouldn't mind a female crew mate, but no one really had the build up or the same level of skill and they've been needing a merman or maid forever.

But again, no tell if he'll accept.
>> No. 22126
Jinbe is so fucking boring
>> No. 22127
I find it hilarious that whenever anyone shows a connection with Captain Huge Head, any past connection at all, they become a perfect canidate for Newkama.

Fish Gramps might not fit in the crew as an asthetic famly structure sense, but as far as story and world lore go, I can't think of a better choice at this time.
>> No. 22128

No, he's disciplined, unlike half of the brain damaged or neurotic strawhats.

He's just not WHACKY HI-JINKS and comedic reactions all over the place and even then if he does end up going with them he'll probably turn out to have some quirks.
>> No. 22130
Just imagine Jinbe telling the Strawhats....

He already does. They're just subtle. "A name for the plan...!"

So, how do you all think the anime is going to voice the sea kings?

Being in the same general area as someone who can randomly change your gender on a whim and refuse to turn you back is suffering.

Are the people saying that Robin and Nano, possibly the two smartest strawhats, that happen to be women are not enough and somehow adding another woman would "balance" the crew out. It isn't sexist to not add another female, adding a new crew member based solely on gender is sexist.

That said, I fucking love Jinbei/Jimbe/ Jim Bean. If he does join the monster trio will be thrown out of whack for sure, it doesn't really seem to exist due to the fact everyone seems to be a monster in their own right now.

I was dreading Jinbe joining but now that it's finally here, I guess I have no choice but to get used to it. Which I'm sure I will.

It's probably because you don't get the subtle humor in his "false straight man" act, which he slips into whenever he's not actively involved in a battle to the death. It's understandable, because A: most FI translations have been pretty shit, and B: the last 2 crewmembers are so outrageous that you'd have to be literally braindead to not notice their humor.


Sorry guy but I don't think that particular page has come out as a raw scan. Personally I don't think them being able to identify Caribou would make sense, or matter.

People are just upset that they don't have what they think would be a better addition. They want a character that's "wacky enough" for the crew. The last two people that joined in had very unusual attitudes, and that set an expectation in what sort of person hops aboard. People find him "boring" because he isn't as crazy or mysterious as the others, like a Robin or Zoro without a mysterious past. Honestly, I think Zoro is a more 'boring' character than Jinbei.

Same way Franky does. Considering Jin's smaller.

Oda, truly is the greatest. The gap between the question and answer is creating exponentially more hurt feelings than Jinbe joining or not joining would have alone.

I say Jimbei is gonna decline the offer but Princess Shirahoshi will become the new nakama instead: she's a girl, she's a mermaid, she communicates with seakings and is gigantic. Her job will be to pull the Sunny around so they don't have to depend on the wind or Coups de Burst. Since she can live in the water they won't have to invite her into the Sunny.

Calling it now, Shirahoshi will be the next nakama.
>> No. 22199
So she'll become their mule? Seems legit.
No one from this arc should join.
>> No. 22200

Dumb. If you're going to root for 0% chances at least do it half the arc ago when it was popular.
>> No. 22201

Well that's good! Because Jinbei has been in SEVERAL Arcs leading up to this!
>> No. 22202
And that's another reason he doesn't fit in. No one else has spent that many arcs without joining.
>> No. 22203

What if Jinbe was a 20-something kawaii fishwoman with giant titties. Would you be cheering right now? Answer honestly.
>> No. 22204
Nope. Preferably the last crew member should be a man.

Someone already put it best earlier: a female would just be more wasted space who'd never get any interesting battles.

>> No. 22206
Well hey now, Nami and Robin aren't wasted space.
>> No. 22208
None of those were introduced about 4 arcs (not to mention two years) before joining the crew.

Honestly, yes. I wanted the last member to be a fishwoman; though I don't see what the big boobs or age have to do with it. I just wanted variety. And variety that stood out.

On an unrelated topic, anyone else having problems loading pictures on here? I keep getting that "Failed to write disk" whatever message.

Oh, and that little narration thing after Luffy asks Jimbei to join.
>> No. 22213
She was introduced at the end of Whiskey Peak. Drum and Little Garden (both diminutive arcs), and then Arabasta. That's it.

Jinbe: Impel Down, Marineford, Post-War arc, (TWO YEARS), Return to Sabaody, Fishman Island.
I wouldn't be so peeved about all this if it wasn't for the fact he was hamfisted through that timeskip. It was supposed to be a clean slate; next member someone brand new from the New World. No, let's just add this old background dude because lolfish and karate.
I've always seen Jinbe on the same level as Rayleigh, Hancock and Ivankov. It's like any one of those joining the crew full time -- equally as ridiculous in my book.
>> No. 22214
If Jinbe doesn't join, it'll be because he needs to protect fishman island. I doubt this, however, and I'm sure he will join.

I won't be happy at first because I wanted another femal crewmate for variety, but I'll get used to it like I got used to the new designs. Oda has a way of making me love everything he sets his mind to.
>> No. 22215
So just being on the ship means it's official then. Luffy may have accepted her but to her it was just another means to her continued research until Water 7.

Regardless, why should it matter? So we've known about his existence longer, why does that change anything?

And why would he need to? They have a princess that can summon sea kings.
>> No. 22216
Can we talk about others things in this arc?

How the fuck do seakings work? Is each one unique or do they belong to a species? Do each species communicate together if they're big enough? Why do we see this particular group time and time again? They're obviously capable of coherent thought and a shared duty. They also acknowledge that they have a king, a mermaid king. Are they the ones with the power to destroy the world, or is it Shirahoshi's ability? What's the ship for? What family's power is needed to restore the ship? Can the citizens of fishman island fix the ship? and what the fuck is the promise? A lot of information was unloaded here dudes, and its not all about jinbe.
>> No. 22217
I like to think of it this way: these specific Seakings we saw now (the giant cowzebra, labrabird, etc.), are actually ancient themselves and travel the world wherever they see fit. Like the rare Pokemon of old. They're at the top of the food chain, so nothing gets in their way.

Of course I could be wrong, because them belonging to a specific race or species is also possible. There's a lot of things still left in secret, don't hurt yourself trying to figure it all now. With OP, we get one answer and that answer always raises about 6 more questions.

The mad is palpable.

Really though, look in your heart of hearts. You knew this was going to happen. From so far back, from the second that the flashbacks showed us that Jinbei has the soft archetype of a yakuza boss, from the moment you heard the rumor that Oda said the next nakama would be a former boss, then you saw Jinbei directly referred to as one.

You knew this was going to be the truth. No matter what section of the fandom you sit in, no matter if you're a pathetic waifu fapper who wants more women, no matter if you're an ADHD 14yo kid who just wants wacky skeletons and silly faces, you knew it all along.

But what you don't know is how to think clearly and see with your mind instead of your heart. Jinbei will not join. He has no dream. He has no youth or spring or want to do anything besides guide and protect. He respects Luffy more than anyone else and it is because of that that he will refuse. He'll do much more for the relationship between humans and fishmen doing practically anything aside from what they (humans) think that Luffy does.

He will decline. It won't be the first time.
>> No. 22230
Well, I enjoy Jinbei, but I don't know if he's enjoyable enough for me with want him to be a crewmate. I'd be totally down for him being a temporary member, though. Like, he decides to go with the crew to bring Otohime's petition to Reverie and gets swept up in whatever arc is brewing there.

Check it: all of Luffy's nakama. Chapter 1 he said he wanted 10 nakama, not 10 crewmates. Chapter 649, he's got 10 nakama.

Does this make you upset?

So the series that's only about halfway over and features the friend valuing main character that has a way of even forming bonds with vile enemies-

is going to go for the last 50% of the entire story without the guy making any more friends.

Yah, okeedo.
>> No. 22234

Did you notice that a vast majority of the Whitebeard fleet wasn't actually Whitebeard's crew? But that they still respected him and saw him as their leader? And that you can be just friends (tomodachi) and still grow a bond of trust strong enough that the two will die for the other?
>> No. 22235
His dream is to mend the tear between cultures. The same dream his queen had. He's the first fishman to give blood to a human. I think he's comitted to the idea.

But we'll see how it plays out next week.
>> No. 22236
Luffy's made way more friends than just his crew. The current cover arc is just showing them all off, even.
>> No. 22237
Jinbe being undecided about his dream was an important part of his character! Stop using that as a basis for arguments!
Chapter 620:
>Queen Otohime tried to endure the painful times, for a better future. Fisher Tiger gave up on the future, and instead took action to free the slaves right now. I cannot judge who was right and who was wrong...
It wouldn't have made sense if he had a concrete dream at the time, since he himself wasn't sure what to do. That's kind of sort of THE ENTIRE POINT OF THIS CHAPTER, Jinbe finally finding a way, however narrow, to succeed where the two people most important to him failed. In fact, most of the strawhat pirates' dreams have to do with finding a way to surpass their mentor figure or succeed where they failed.

Wait why am I even arguing at this point. People who don't understand Jinbe's character arc aren't going to suddenly understand it now

Okay this is just getting disturbing.

The family is probably Tom's. They dropped it in the Shipyard Cemetery with his brother, and they did make some of the strongest ships in the world after all. The Sea Kings most likely are the power to destroy the world, since... well, Sea Kings pretty much have always had that sort of power taken as one group. The only way people have ever conquered the Calm Belt is by making ships the Sea Kings IGNORE (and Amazon Island's snakes.)

If Jinbei joins then I'm confident Oda's gonna give him plenty of personality and character interaction with the crew. We've only seen him in very personal or very serious situations and we don't know what'll happen if he's allowed to loosen up a bit. Either way I'm betting this'll all turn out for the best.

Well damn. When did everyone go stupid? It's funny because the war that could start mending relationships between two races has broken the friggin' fanbase harder than ever before. Anon at >>22164 is right; nakama has gone from Luffy's friends whether they are crew or not to our equivalent of shipping. My word, I'm afraid that the next nakama's gonna be on the level of the Detective Conan shipping war...

Agreed on the fact that we're unlikely to figure things out, but it is fun to try! I agree with the 'top of the food chain' sentiments, though.

Also, is it just me or when they showed Roger hearing their voices, did his face just not fit what he was saying? I mean I know his middle initial is D, but dude is ALWAYS smiling. He barely seems confused, his face still makes him look like he's smiling.

so are we to expect something physical to come from Luffy having Jinbei's blood? not just a metaphorical bond thing, but able to breathe underwater longer, or an affinity for merman karate? illogical, but seems within the realm of anime

I'm cool with Jinbei joining, if he does. presume Oda will develop him to be more than another serious guy like Zoro. have heard murmurs that he's too strong to fit into the crew, but Franky was able to smack Luffy around when they first met too

I'm far from being up to date with this series yet (just started Davy Back), but I like the sounds of this.

I'm another woman that would've liked to see another female strawhat (one that has good fights) - my fantasy crew member was a female martial artist. But Oda's just not one to put women in fighting roles, and that's fine.

Anyways, it seems like I'm still getting a martial artist, so all of my YESSS.

Sadly, I pretty much know all the major things that happens from my point until the present. There will be no real surprises for me. I started the series... years ago, but shit would happen, I'd lose interest, stop watching for a few months, but still wander into OP threads on /a/.

I think my problem is that I'm watching the anime, I love the voice acting, but it goes so freaking slow at times and I have the attention span of a goldfish. I've already switched over to the manga. It's a shame, I like Robin and "I WANT TO LIVE!" would be 100x more glorious if it was new to me.

Now I want to just get up to date so I can join the fandom in discussing new chapters. It will still be fun to go through the next few arcs, it's only the major stuff I know.
>> No. 22297


Well anyway time to cleave a path through this bullshit (even though part of it is me...) and answer a very important non-Jinbe question. Yes, Ishilly (big boob freckles mermaid who nosebled Sanji into a coma and opened the barrel) and the other mermaids are able to remember Caribou's face, and it's implied that he (or someone...) was waiting for everyone to leave the castle to make their move. Coincidentally, this would be at around the time Zoro, Usopp, and Brook got broken out of their cage offscreen. How convenient! Maybe shenanigans were involved?

Guys, guys, Jinbei isn't going to join because the moon rises up at night and the twelve zodiac signs point to Sun's house and everyone knows that if you send fish to the sun they dehydrate.

His next nakama will be a Crab Fishwoman because crabs have protective shells and they don't get fried by the Sun's fire so easily.

Human pirates are freed, new fishman pirate remnants ordered by Neptune to live on the island. They'll be doing manual labor.
Fishman district is closed, Decken, Hody, and the officers are imprisoned. Wadatsumi is banned and chased off by the kraken.
Jimbe refuses but says he owes them so to wait. He'll come again some time so he says to ask again then.
Party on the island.

Robin leaves the celebrations, alone with Nep.
Asks about Joyboy. He existed during the blank 100 years, and the letter of apology on the poneglyph was towards the then mermaid princess.
According to royal legend someone will come one day to fulfill the promise. Their promise is to watch over Noah until that day.
Robin discovered Poseidon's location on Skypeia. The location is Fishman Island. Shirahoshi IS Poseidon (mermaid princess, not little mermaid. but the little mermaid is mermaid princess in japanese).

Stuff like this makes me sick. Fuck, the Jinbe argument is prolonged indefinitely. Pro-Jinbes don't get to celebrate because he doesn't join, anti-Jinbes only have a hollow win because he's pretty much just said he'll join eventually. Everyone loses (their shit).
>> No. 22374
>Where would Crocodile store his country-annihilating weapon if the weapon was a giant mermaid?

Pluton is not Poseidon.
"Poseidon" was vaguely mentioned in Skypeia, it's now confirmed to be Shirahoshi (or the mermaid princess in general). Pluton is another weapon (one which apparently IS mechanical, since Franky could build it) somewhere else entirely. That's the one Crocodile wanted.

Ah! Thank you! I mixed them up, and was wondering where Alubasta would have a giant lake or something.
Don't you think its strange how Franky, whose dream ship is the Sunny Go, can only build a ship of Sunny Go's side while the people who handed Pluton's blueprints down to him through Tom are talking about sizes on the scale of Noah?

So...no one "wins"?
>> No. 22380
I'm sure Franky could build whatever he wanted if he put his mind to it. It just seems to be that these ancient weapons were really really advanced, so they can't do much without the blueprint for them.

I can bet you all three and a half of my testicles that we're gonna be learning all about these things (or even seeing them) when we meet Vegapunk. He knows something for sure. These weapons are gonna be the big reveal/problem/enemy near the end of the series.

Its not the size its what you do with it.
