    After reading through this thread I'm kinda psyched now for Jinbe as the next crew member. Great reasons all around. I wonder what might become his motive for entering the crew under Luffy, though. Maybe Luffy will super-inspire him after the events of FI Arc are over.

    I think New World experience could be a good reason. Especially if the SHs can't find a New World version of a Compass or Log Pose.

    More likely it will be along the lines of honoring Ace, but also Whitebeards decision to put his faith in Luffy. If Jinbei joined it would not be him serving under Luffy - in fact not many on his crew serve him - it is represented them respecting him enough to do what he says without question when he is serious. All other times they're just a bunch of friends on an adventure - Usopp, Sanji and Nami will smack and push Luffy around - Zoro treats him like a child.
    So Jinbei could easily fit in there - also if he was to join in the humour I would imagine his humour and jokes would be more adult/mature in nature nothing out of place but the sort of dual layer jokes that are funny as a kid and REALLY funny as an adult.

    I think it was made clear Jinbe is very much a captain in a sense that he doesn't really like to listen to what other people say but would rather make his own decisions based from his own perceptions. We saw this with how he refused to help Luffy just because Ace asked him to, and how he refused to listen to Whitebeard during the war.

    Even if he doesn't have his own crew any more, he is still captain in the way he behaves around others.

    I honestly don't get why everyone is so disgusted and riled up against Shirahoshi.
    I'm not a fan of crying women with huge breasts either, but that doesn't have to be all there is to her.

    And why is everyone so convinced of her being weak? There is really nothing to prove that yet. 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.

    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.

    But I think it could go either way at this point.
    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.

    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.

    I'm sure Oda would have no problem deepening her character and fitting her into the crew, if he wanted to.
    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. 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.

    Again we'll just have to be patient and see.

    ^We've yet to see any Mermaids capable of fighting. I doubt that the first one will be the coward, crybaby Princess who was locked up in the tower for a decade. If she was being trained to fight, like her brothers, I'd expect her to be a little bit more tougher. But she's isn't.

    Do you really think she has any kind of interesting fighting style? Or is she just going to slap her opponents with her fin?
    I think it's pretty obvious that she's weak considering Jinbei separated her from her brothers when he talked about their progress.

    That's my point. Why shouldn't there be a powerful mermaid? And who could be a better representative than the princess?

    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.

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

    The Princes. Why the hell would someone locked up in a tower for 10 years with no fighting experience be strong? She doesn't dodge the attacks either, they don't get to her because they hit the walls or the guards block the attack

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    What is this and what does it have to do with anything.

    Then she'll.....no seriously. What about it.

    A lot of people care.

    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.
