    Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    I agree on all points. All I'm saying is that the goal of opening Wano's borders is basically equivalent to beating Kaidou and restoring the Kozuki Shogunate - it's something that's going to happen...

    Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    I definitely see the argument that Yamato's being set up to join Momo's court as a new retainer, but I'm not sure I fully buy it just yet. I think it undersells Yamato's early characterization (the...

    Feels good to be back. Really missed AP while it was down and Reddit is no substitute.

    Not gonna lie, seeing Vivi with her hair pulled back again makes me unreasonably happy.

    Much as I'm enjoying Wano, I honestly cannot wait for the big reveal(s) about what went down at the Reverie...

    Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    I guess what I'm trying to get across is that the DBF is set up to treat crewmembers as though they are expendable, just "chips" to be used in bets and trade. That makes sense given what we know...

    There's a difference between "let's put our lives on the line to fight this battle together" and "hey Chopper, I'm betting your spot in the crew on the outcome of an arm-wrestling match".

    Unlikely, in my mind. The Reverie's setting a lot of end-game things in motion for the World Government and Blackbeard's already moving to respond.

    A nice long celebration is in order, sure, but...

    Kaidou's been based out of Wano for 25+ years at this point.

    Regardless of where he's originally from, I don't think it's unreasonable for him to have learned and use Wano's term for CoA haki,...
