Captain Shmeckie, I don't undestand you. Before you kept on touting Kuma's being a pimp as a reason to vote him over Nami. But do you realize the irony of what you're saying?
Nami is the DEFINITION of pimp. The rest of the Straw Hats are the hos bringing in the bread and she's there to collect. Someone has a problem with that? Pimp fist o' love!
As soon as she woke up, she was back to her old self. I can't think of one thing she did between that point and the Kuma incident that would give anyone cause for aggravation.
I wasn't thrilled with how Nami vs Califa was handled, but it can't be dismissed as pure fanservice. The first half, yes - that part was horrible. But the second part was quite awesome and Nami did a kickass job at working her strengths: manneuvering Califa into her lightning trap. And this was despite yet again working with a weapon that was fairly new to her.
Of course he was mocking her faith in her Luffy. That's pure Crocodile. But he ALSO commented that she was quite fiesty. He could have said "wow, you're a STUPID girl" but no, he said fiesty. Crocodile acknowledges fire when he sees it.Actually, he was mocking her more than anything. Particularly when she sang Luffy's praises. He just went and called her faith idiotic.
But how does Nami's being unconscious make her a bad character?
Seriously, I don't get this. Nami beat Kuma and now she's losing to Roger. Does that mean that Roger>Kuma?
Check out my tumblr for my thoughts on random movies and manga^^
She's just been the pretty face in the background either serving to round out a small group when the SHs split up, or fade into the background and look pretty when they're all together. Not only has she not done shit, but her personality has damn near fizzled out of existance. Except, of course, her gag crap. Which is great: reduce her to nothing but screeching at everyone. That'll make her more likeable...
There are too much SHs in this round. Time for one to say good bye.
Vote for Roger.
OMG, nami is catching up, how is it possible?
No One Piece without the pirate king folks!!
I'm with roger on this one, we need a non strawhat to win this tournament.
As much as I hate Straw Hat Syndrome, Nami is my favorite.
Gotta go with homegirl.
And yet, jamjam, you voted for Zoro and Luffy, the ones most likely to win. HMMM
But I'll be interested to hear just why you think she's gone downhill because, up until Califa vs Nami/Thriller Bark (which has been addressed already), I think she's gone nothing but uphill. The BW fight was her entry into the game as a regular fighter. It was partly played for laughs, but so are Usopp's and I think it's fitting given the type of fighters they are (completely lacking in physical power), and the opponents they face.
That brings up another point: She has a damn cool fighting style. Bo staff + weather-based abilities? Hell yeah! We've got melee attacks and firepower in one.
If only Oda committed to giving women serious fights, she has potential to be pretty kickass on the battlefield. What she lacks in brute strength she makes up with tactical skill and strategy. This is also why I find her and Usopp's fights generally more interesting to watch.
No one has really done shit besides Zoro and Sanji (and obviously Luffy) recently either. Doesn't make the others any less likeable. And it certainly doesn't mean their personalities aren't intact.Not only has she not done shit, but her personality has damn near fizzled out of existance. Except, of course, her gag crap. Which is great: reduce her to nothing but screeching at everyone. That'll make her more likeable...
I will convince you somehow Shmeckie.

nami gets my vote ^-^
i am not voting for the king, just coz he is the king .. really -__-'' roger may have been awesome but that's just not enough to earn my vote.
even though i've to admit that nami has been used for fanservice more than anything else recently ... i still love her! she is a great character and i find it sad that so many people call her a bitch. it's hard to be one of the only girls in a shonen manga! and apart from the fanservice oda provides us with .. he also gave her an awesome character. it's the fans who reduce her to boobs.
so, nami deserves to win this match!
Nami is sexy, intelligent, a tough and very good fighter, humrous, simply a great character.
Fun fact: did you know lightning can heat the air in its immediate vicinity to over three times the heat of the surface of the sun? Nami utilizes it in fights not with a Devil Fruit, but with the power of her brain in combination with a weapon she uses in ways even its creator didn't envision.
