    Re: Next Strawhat Crewmate (Vol. 6)

    Yeah, pretty much. Every single point has just been discussed to death over and over at this point. To the point where it just loops right back around again and the same discussion happens again.

    It isn't even only about Jinbe, though.

    It's also in relation to how she's been depicted when compared to the Straw Hats as a collective whole, not just to one of them. We can argue for hours...

    Is there really a need for this?



    If there was a single moment in the sea-chase sequence of 20 chapters where she did the job better than anybody else, I would absolutely believe that Oda is...

    You didn't at all answer why the usual format would change. Or why we're supposed to care when their connection as mentor/mentee was revealed in 3 panels right when he exploded.

    Oh, so you were talking about the introduction arc as a whole after all?

    I went along with what access said about you referring to his 10 years of foreshadowing, but I guess that wasn't it.

    Re: Next Strawhat Crewmate (Vol. 6)

    Why is Jinbe being put down like he had nothing else going for him at the time? He wasn't just a simple hyped up character after his introduction.

    I mean, you can say that, but Burgess existed as a helmsman long before Jinbe came to be. It was already an official role in Oda's story.

    I'm not putting Jinbe on a pedestal. I'm subjecting him to the same narrative scrutiny that any new Straw Hat has been subjected to.

    Big emphasis on "supposedly". There were 2 chapters where she was a hype tool for her race, but otherwise she did nothing else noteworthy that I can point out as a "Carrot solo shining moment."

    Yeah, I honestly can't wait to meet the next Straw Hat. It's been a long time coming since Jinbe's initial debut in 2009. It's probably one of my most anticipated future moments.
