    There is absolutely nothing to suggest that she can fight and everything to suggest that she can't.

    Why not? That's one way to go. Like Sanji only using his legs. She could jump higher than Brook and use her fin like Jinbe uses his fists.
    There are so many other possibilities I can't even imagine. Like a trident with mythical Dragon Zoan, or using "Water Magic" and calling for fish like Jinbe.

    In the end it's up to Oda.
    It's just a possibility.


    Yes, he didn't name her as a formidable warrior, she didn't avoid the flying axe, and she didn't leave the island with Jinbe. But none of that is really conclusive.
    So basically, you're saying that even though we have a lot of evidence against it and you only have a few extremely unlikely scenarios, she still has a chance. And How can she jump without legs? Or move at any considerable speed on land without them?

    Oh great! More pre-emptive theorization!

    And why is everyone so convinced of her being weak? There is really nothing to prove that yet.
    Yes truly the smart assumption is that she has spent her decade growing up in a tower honing her martial arts skills.
    This isn't stupid in the slightest.

    Cowardice is not the same as weakness, as we all should know. It's impossible to avoid Decken's surprise attacks indefinitely. Even Whitebeard got stabbed by surprise.
    Unless you live in a tower precisely so that shit hits the wall and in fact it's the entire reason you have been kept inside and it's a central part of your charWHY DONT YOU SHIT THEORIZERS EVER READ THIS THING YOU ATTEMPT TO THEORIZE OVER, ITS CALLED ONE PIECE VKUGBIUK<J&OGYVU*TN#UG#&IUFG

    But I think it could go either way at this point.
    In spite of the fact that it's massively sensibly weighted all in one direction. Very smart.

    Whether she is just a stupid damsel in distress or will fight to the death herself all torn-up, using some awesome unseen skills, we'll just have to wait and see.
    What the hell part of this doesn't immediatly make you think "Oda won't do that ever this isn't Bleach."

    Anyway I think it would be good to have a powerful mermaid in the story to represent her kind and crush that pathetic racist image of weak prey and slaves. Preferably someone involved in the final destruction of Mariejois.
    OH GOD he's off in fan-fiction land, someone get a hose.

    I'm sure Oda would have no problem deepening her character and fitting her into the crew, if he wanted to.
    no no no no no no no no no that is not how this thing fucking works, oda doesn't sit around and randomly decide to work characters into the crew.
    For example the Sunny is much much bigger than everyone thinks. And mermaids don't have to be disabled on land. Caimie just had to hide her fin on Sabaody.
    Yeah, Camie, so she could be carted around like an invalid to do important things like ride merry go rounds.

    Jesus christ why do you people not use your heads, it's baffling.

    Shira could move like the Gorgon Sisters or use any kind of device/pet to carry her, like a weapon with Zoan DF. The possibilities are endless.
    Oda can easily make it work.
    Oda can easily overcome all this annoying bullshit to write in a character in no way characterized to join at all.
    Do you have any idea about why you're fighting so much friction to make this argument? Have you thought maybe when you feel friction you should stop arguing?

    Again we'll just have to be patient and see.
    No we don't.

    If you take what Shirahoshi's shown so far, without any random speculation, Here's what we have.

    -She's a giant mermaid princess
    -Locked up 10 years
    -Luffy's been throwing tons of insults at her
    -She's a crybaby
    -Wants to go to her mom's grave
    -Luffy has to act like a bodyguard

    Anything past that is random speculation. Nothing in that list makes her Nakama material.

    Sadly, you forgot a key element that some posters look for alone in her being a woman and large-chested.

    Remember when Bonney was captured by Akainu, how a good number of theories would say the SH's would rescue her and she'd join? If it was a male Supernova, you could count people thinking the same theory on one hand.

    She'd actually be an incredibly annoying stupid character in any other manga. But the way Luffy's interacting with her makes her funny and fresh instead of groan inducing and cliche.

    Princess: EEEEE IM A BIG BOOBED INNOCENT CUTIE WHO SO SCARED"

    Luffy: Yo, you're a wierdo, what the fucks the deal with you. whatever, wanna come outside and stop being annoying? Cool.

    Luffy owns.

    I mean, if she proves to be as useless as Vivi, Conis, Caimie,... , then of course there is no way for her to join. Usopp and Nami started from scratch too, but times are much tougher now.

    Your strong sense of logic is such, that I'm strongly compelled to report to the CIA that you may be a terrorist and that you should be killed. I mean, there's nothing to prove that you are not a terrorist.

    Does that sound stupid to you? I hope so, because your whole argument is based on that.

    JERK DISEASE are you serious? Or are you just trolling me?
    Oda could have created her to make her part of the crew, to give their mission more meaning, to balance and expand the story, and for many other reasons. Her cowardice and innocence could be part of her "charm", when she overcomes it, just like with Chopper and the others. Sanji, Chopper, Usopp and Nami can be pretty annoying too and nobody cares. The story about her mother would deepen her character and make her look more sympathetic to some. Those are not assumptions, but reasonable possibilities. Just like her brothers wanting her to learn self-defense. What's stupid about that?

    I don't see that massive evidence against her joining. Just minor details, just like with Franky.

    There was more friction with Franky joining and people fighting it till the end.

    There is an awesome picture. Just brilliant. That could actually work.

    @Just Gabe
    I'm against the strong assumption, that she is weak, without compelling evidence to support that.
    But if you want evidence to support that she might be strong?
    What about her size and powerful fin, making her the fastest creature in the ocean?
    What about beeing blood related to 4 very powerful fighters?
    What about beeing in constant danger and taught by some very powerful people indebted to her?

    That's not enough for NN, but much better than Vivi,Conis,...

    Funny how only some of those are congruent with her character and one is not!

    Her cowardice and innocence could be part of her "charm",
    What is this and what does it have to do with anything.

    when she overcomes it, just like with Chopper and the others.
    Then she'll.....no seriously. What about it.

    Sanji, Chopper, Usopp and Nami can be pretty annoying too and nobody cares.
    A lot of people care.

    The story about her mother would deepen her character and make her look more sympathetic to some.
    That's great. Now what does this have to do with her being crew material.
    Those are not assumptions, but reasonable possibilities.
    They're dumb assumptions when you run them over to being reasons she'll join the crew.

    I don't see that massive evidence against her joining. Just minor details, just like with Franky.
    Oh god...

    There was more friction with Franky joining and people fighting it till the end.
    Those people were gigantic morons.
    Franky had no friction at all once he was revealed to be a three dimensional characters while chilling with Usopp. He was a perfectly acceptable crewmate in every way.

    There is an awesome picture. Just brilliant. That could actually work.
    THAT IS WHAT'S ACTUALLY HAPPENING YOU DINGUS.

    Great great. And tell me pseudo-genius, how is she supposed to fight on land where ALL the fightning has taken place since the beginning of the series? she has no legs.

    Ok, so this is my first actual post here on the site, although I have been hovering around for a long time now.

    As my Username might imply, I really think that Hyouzou Is going to be the next nakama. There are a few reasons on why I think so, some more realistic then others.

    1. I think that he is the swordsman that Hachi referred too in the Arlong Arc. I feel that if Oda had at least an idea of that character back then, then his character is going to be important. Much like Brook was thought of far before he was introduced.

    Spoiler:


    2. He is a mercenary who does not hold the beliefs of the Fishman Pirates, which would make a change of sides not unbelievable.

    3. This a more abstract idea of the reason why, but for me it holds some merit. If you see this picture of some of the rough sketches of the Straw Hats that Oda released in the Green Book. You can see that Choppers original idea was to be a swordsman, and if you look even closer, you can see that he holds a tooth pic in his mouth (Same as Hyouzou). His overall expression is calm and uncaring, much like Hyouzou's. Also if you look all the way to the left there is a random small duck fishman looking character. That makes me think that Chopper took his place and maybe Hyouzou's character design took the old Choppers place. Just a thought.

    Spoiler:
    Url to the Green Book sketch (Cant post it for some reason)

    Isn't there enough swordsmen in the crew?
    I think that the idea of chopper being swordman changed to brook being it. Brook hasn't a sword in the sketches of the Green Book

    We don't need a Zoro wannabe, Zoro's incredible and awesome as he is, Hyozou is strong but doesn't fit in the crew.

    Default Re: Last Two Nakamates (vol. 5)

    I dont see that as an argument against having him. Its either guns, swords, or fists in One Piece. Its how unique of a fighting style that makes a character interesting. If Hyouzou has an interesting enough fighting style, I dont think it would be a huge problem.

    P.S: On a random note, I think that Hyouzou uses a bokken which could lead to a really awesome and crazy fighting style.

    I agree with what you said and that's exactly why he's a good rival to Zoro but not nakama material.

    Hyouzou's cool, but I can't see him joining. He only does things for money. The Strawhat's are all about friendship and adventure.

    *looks up what a Bokken is* A wooden sword used for training?

    So... his fighting style would involve giving people splinters? Even Usopp could light his wooden sword on fire, and beat him...

    yeah, a merc with no morals would be such a brilliant addition to the crew. I can just imagine the wacky scenarios when Luffy's bleeding to death and really needs help against a strong enemy but lovable Hyouzou's too busy demanding more money!

  20. #12060

    Default Re: Last Two Nakamates (vol. 5)

    I thought about the whole doing things for money thing, but then again isnt that how Nami joined at first? I mean it is all a very rough idea for now until we know more. I mean Nami stole the Luffy's first ship. Franky was ok with his family brutally beating Usopp, and Robin was a former villain, I see no reason why Hyouzou is any worse then those three. In fact he has done much less then Franky or Robin. All I am saying, is that I think he has more potential then people think.

    I didnt know any other word for it, but I meant a wooden sword of some sort. Maybe is has some special properties or something. Its just as I look at all the images with him and his sword, it seems to look "bulkier" then most, and I can never see the sheath part of it. But that is pure speculation.
