If he really wanted to reflect that it would've made more sense to have Pedro and Wanda. They are a cat and a dog, plus they have apparently been good friends all their lives.
But Carrot's design is so much better than Wanda's that I'm glad she's the one coming along and possibly even joining.
Damnit, forgot pic
>wanda and carrot will never be real
WHY IS THIS EVEN ALLOWED? FUCK YOU ODA
I really doubt that is going to happen. Carrot seems more like the Margaret of this arc.
If Oda gives her a unique skill and/or flashback I'm going to be convinced. Otherwise it's wishful thinking, as much as I may want it to be true.
Never, we are on the UsoppxNami train now, you are already old news and should hide in shame forever

It's not like they had too long to go check on anything below decks. She was healing up in the Yuki Rabi chains, and then it was only a day between Dressrosa and the boat. So these past two weeks they've had maybe one, two days they could have noticed her.
>Could Vivi join the crew?
>She might have gained some power we do not know about ...
wasn't dreaming, just wondering. She was part of the crew in the past so i could see her come back. But if she only goes to Reverie, it won't happen.
No idea who it will be now...
No. Vivi has actual, you know, responsibilities. She isn't going to throw all of that away to join some pirates and become a fugitive that makes alliances with other pirates, terrorists and criminals
So recently I've went back to read everything post timeskip and I've got a question regarding Trebol.
In his little speech/flashback he's talking about Doffy having "the royalties" and how he's going to stand behind Doffy as he does his king influence power manifest destiny bullshit. Then we see baby Doffy's "crew" basically just appease him in any way possible and groom him.
Was Trebol trying to control Doffy through the "family" stuff, did he honestly just go "wow this kid has a future I guess I'll follow him blindly now", or was he basically just appeasing and grooming Doffy so that when he got older (now) Doffy would just do his thing and Trebol could then kick back and have the easy life?
Everyone else in the Doffy family was completely subservient and blindly loyal to Doffy but Trebol's little tangent made it come off that he was aware all this shit would just fall into place.
>hurr durr useful crew roles
Robin is supposed to be an archeologist Meanwhile she doesn't do shit. She just exists to look good and provide another female to the crew, just like Nami. They are literally the same character, and haven't had fuck all relevance to any plot since god danm Water 7. She hasn't done a thing, and neither of them ever will, thanks to Oda. All they are is a pair of tits, and their worthless existence will continue on, as the crew's big three do everything that needs to be done with style, grace, and plenty of retarded, mouth breathing fans backing their every move. There is no end to the blind stupidity of Oda in these clearly extremely biased decisions that he continues to make, arc after arc after arc. None at all. Dressrosa was a prime fucking example, with Zoro and Luffy being bad ass and useful, and the rest of the crew, bar Usopp (Godsopp was a fucking mistake), not being worth a danm. I mean even Jack the Jobber, the invincible captain JACK had more use than these two sluts.
An archeologist? A FUCKING ARCHEOLOGIST? For what? These assholes are pirates and outlaws, why the fuck do they need a stupid archeologist. No fucking reason.
>muh muh ponygliffs
Poneglyphs haven't been relevant at all, and never will be. We haven't even SEEN a poneglyph in the story since Alabasta, and that one turned out to be fucking worthless anyways. Almost as worthless as most of the god danm straw hat crew. Oda is a piece of shit hack for creating giant fucking history rocks, and for then making said rocks worthless, just like most everything in his story. So the next time I hear that each crew member needs to serve a useful, unique role to play, think back to the fact that most of them are totally pointless, and shouldn't be on the SH crew in the first place.
What the fuck did I just read?
I understand this completely.
But when Kinnemon explained that Momo father join the crew for a while, despite having great responsibilities too, I just thought about Vivi as a possibility.
Apparently it wasn't a good idea at all, my bad
yeah sure, really helpful
There's a difference between checking out the ship for five minutes and deciding no one's home, and living on the ship for a long period of time. People can stowaway on ships for weeks and not be noticed.
>I really don't like this arc.
I mean I really didn't hate it but this was effectively the standard "okay Strawhats land on the new island and meet the natives and then the bad guy happens" 1-3 (at most) little tiding over chapters stretched into some mini arc to lay out a fuck ton of exposition.
The Minks are cool and I get that this is all set up but for 20+ devoted to just being "okay this is the status of everything" and "okay this is what we're all going to do" was a bit much for me.
It was fine and it wasn't "bad" but at the same time I'd have rather 10 chapters have been devoted to literally anything else going forward into whatever the next arc is.
>Not liking short arcs with tons of exposition.
Not everything has to be a shitty battle shonen arc. These comfy short adventure arcs are what attracted me to One Piece in the first place.
He left them in the first place.
He's probably a wild dude.
Maybe has more difficulty curbing his animalistic desires for food than other minks.
Could be his relationship with Big Mam.
>okay Strawhats land on the new island and meet the natives and then the bad guy happens
But it was anything but that. This arc was structured completely different than any other arc before. It did not even have a main villain for the SH to beat.
I take it Pell and Chaka are escorting Vivi as her bodyguards.
Not that they'll be of any help, if they weren't strong by Grand Line standards, then they'll be fucked by anyone in the New World.
WHAT KIND OF WEAPONS WILL FRANKY BUILD FOR THE KAIDO FIGHT
HOW DIFFICULT OF A TIME WILL ZORO HAVE WRASSLIN' UP DEM DERE WANO SAMURAI
HOW BALLIN' OF A LUFFY CIRCLEJERK WILL THE REVERIE BE
WILL WE REALLY HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL AFTER WHOLE CAKE ISLAND TO FIND OUT WHERE ZUNISHA IS WALKING TO
My curiosity lies with this motherfucker. When he reappears which side will he actually be on?
super shogun robo
>franky takes out the second-in-command instead of Zoro
>steals the bounty jump
>Zoro instead fights off like 10,000 Wano trained samurai alone and still keeps his rep as a world-class swordsman
No I'm saying this entire arc was just an elongated version of the first intro chapters of a new arc in which we meet the natives and get hints towards the bad guys being bad.
Sure there wasn't any specific villain for this arc but that's the point. It's like those very small number of set up chapters in that exact same way.
Blackbeard. For real. I know everyone thinks he's just playing a long game, but I see Aokiji joining with Blackbeard on a matter of nihilism, not simply being some sort of triple agent. He's seen what the Marines are capable of, the sort of people they vote for as leaders, and the men they serve. But in regards to Revolution, he sees the new boss same as the old boss, and he's just decided a full reset is best for everyone, and Blackbeard's ambitions likely involve the destruction of both.
He still likes some Marines, and asks for favors with Smoker as the ties are still fair, but he's given up on these notions that anyone in charge now is worth protecting, and he wants it all to go for something else. Lazy Justice is an expression of the depressive apathy he's had in his silver years, now it's more a sense of purpose through ending the past.
Not like she really needs a specific role. Everyone says Jimbe is going to join but what is his role? To sit in the background saying Luffy-kun?? Hell 9/10 times Robin does absolutely nothing but be the hot girl with dark humor. She'll be needed in the future but doesn't do much overall.
>Chopper can go monster point with his fruit.
>Chopper ate the human fruit.
>If a human ate the fruit and went monster point they would be like a giant.
>The world government has tried to make giant humans for hundreds of years.
>If the WG or Vega use BB method of taking a devil fruit they might be able to make more human fruits.
And that's why Chopper will be the most wanted member of the crew.
>Franky will build some sort of Samurai Armor-style upgrade for his Franky Shogun.
>Zoro will put that training with Milhawk to his full potential
>Half of them will sing and praise Luffy, others will hiss and boo. A World Noble will probably fuck everything up by being a asshole.
I loved it. I haven't really loved anything Oda has done post-TS but from the tail end of Dressrosa on its gotta better and better. No idea why Oda hit that slump for the first 2-3 years but he's back for sure
Could she just be a symbol?
Like a high born Noble, who is showing her support to pirates, showing she is not with the WG anymore (and that some others noble feel the same maybe).
Helmsman. And it's not really about the role, it's the sort of character you bring to the crew.
Nami's the greedy excited girl.
Zoro's the straight man and sensible counter to Luffy's childlike wonder.
Sanji's the pervert character and the counter to Zoro.
Usopp's the scared one.
Chopper's the mascot.
Robin's the aloof motherly one.
Franky's the boisterous manly one.
Brook's the old and classy humor one.
Jimbei gels with the crew as a more passive Zoro, strong and serious and straight man, but not as actively headstrong and reckless. Sort of a Usopp Zoro hybrid.
Wut, if something Pedro is the one that have this sort of nakama aura, ever since his introduction and now this chapter, Carrot is the wild card, but i'm all for either Pedro alone, Pedro and Carrot or none.
Only if you ignore plenty of stuff that was present in this arc. It is far more complex than some few starting chapters. There is no world building in any of the first chapters of other arcs, also the whole stuff with Sanji puts Zou apart of the formular you have in mind etc.
I want to stuff my carrot in Carrot, if you catch my drift.
Dude, it is obvious as fuck that the house was destroyed due to Jack attacking Zou. Why else should Pekoms lay on the ground, protecting himself with his powers? He would not do that if he caused the damage. Jesus Christ.
What do I need to be like Usopp guys?
He literally is stealing every women in OP
>why the fuck do they need a stupid archeologist
Cause they aren't just any pirate crew. They are Pirate King's crew. And since you can't find Raftel without Poneglyphs, an archeologist like Robin is a must.
Goddamn, Nami has been cute in this arc so far instead of just tits with legs.
Also, I'm sure this has been addressed but in the last panel with Vivi, is the person climbing the stairs someone important? Kinda looks like Rayleigh.
>are you implying Usopp is ugly?
This, you can't deny the sheer majesty that is GOD!
>Not the very definition of a 10/10
shit tast desu desu
pick one you fucking brat.
He kinda looks like Egyptian gods, he really looks majestic.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
>Nami gets a weapon that can grow and shrink
>a black weapon that can grow and shrink
>a black staff that can grow and shrink
>Nami gets Ruyi Jingu Bang, the staff of the monkey king
>People still think Sanji is going to win the tangerine bowl
>implying anyone is going to win the orangeb owl
she's going to end up running an orphanage or something when it's all said and done. Luffy, usopp, and maybe sanji are going to be the only ones with any type or romance. It won't even be romance in luffy's case; he just has to have a kid with someone
Will we someday have an arc without Luffy?
I could totally live it. He's so generic: dark hair goofy MC that likes to eat a lot of meat...
He's far from being the most interesting character.
See my personal ranking.
Why has Luffy been so giddy the last few chapters? Because
Carrot asked him off on the side if she could accompany him on their journey to save sanji and also join their crew and Luffy agreed. He just wants to tell everyone but promised to keep it a secret until they took off for whole cake island.
because this has been prelude to the happening: the arc. He's probably jizzed himself like 10 times due to excitement
>Usopp's not a nigger
He's as black as anyone can be in the OP world
Let's just assume you'd get more and more exhausted the more items you generated at once.
>Generate a gorillion Beli
>Buy seastone bullet
>Get infinite seastone bullet
Ok, now in all seriousnes.
Maybe it won't go that way at all. We can't predict anything about the endgame for most characters (aside from their dreams becoming true).
But Nami being a lesbian (or at least bi) is not too far fetched, after we saw her chemistry with Vivi and the care they had for each other. Also this panel during her fight at EL.
>implying Nami likes niggers
She only makes them work for her for free like the slaves they are.
She prefers her Caucasian white knight.
Would you a Kitty Mink?
I would basically anything at this point anon...
Did Oda show us Vivi taking off because something is going to happen to her enroute?
Normally he'd show a character arriving somewhere. Maybe Big Mam will strong arm Luffy some more by having someone get to Vivi, though I'm not sure she even cares about Luffy enough to do that.
>What does that suppose to mean?
It means that when Usopp has sex with Nami, making her scream like a banshee while driving his humongous schlong inside of her bit by bit, Sanji stands besides the bed with a boner in his pants, smiling and applauding.
>Sanji might have gone all lovey-dovey and okayed the marriage.
Fuuuuuuuuuck. Zoro and Usopp are raising flags for that shit to happen.
Anyway, Reverie, Tea Party, Jinbe recruitment arc, Kaido war arc, Wano, AND Whitebeard Pirates return?
Sorry Oda, but in no way is this the year of Sanji.
No reason to not just show her arriving at Reverie like he showed the Shichibukai arriving at their meeting all those years ago.
Maybe hype? But why her and not Fujitora or someone else.
>"yiff in hell furfag"
>thinking wanting to fuck minks makes you a furry
>not wanting to mercilessly fuck a kitty mink doggystyle while you pull on her tail while she meows intensely
>then cum all over her fuzzy back
you're a fucking faggot anon
For once, I can actually see Carrot joining.
She was introduced with a full-body shot, immediately shown to be competent (dodging/shocking Zoro), spent some time with Luffy and the whole crew, looks to enjoy adventure, looks to be coming along for the next arc, and doesn't have anything tying her down.
That said, every Strawhat needs to get over some kind of trauma and psychological issues before they fully join. Maybe she'll get something this uncoming arc.
Carrots main issue is she hasn't made a huge impression yet. She sat in the backseat for all of Zou.
Maybe in this arc we'll start to see more of her but right now there's really no reason to push for her besides being totally adorable
>Fuuuuuuuuuck. Zoro and Usopp are raising flags for that shit to happen.
I thought of that too.
Fugg, I really enjoyed Zou, but I really want to get back to Sanji's side and see Purin and the Vinsmokes.
I wish it's Bonney or the 3-eyed girl and the shipperfag will shut up.
that would imply the reverie is already starting.
But it's just in a few weeks.
next cover story will be 'on the way to the reverie' where we see all the known royals on their journeys
any one have an idea on how much time has passed since the straw hats met on the archipeligo?
3 days on fishman island, 2 days at punk hazard, 2 days to dressrosa, 10 days to zou?
All it would need is a sentence about how he's now prepared to propose his argument and it'd be clear where he was going.
It's more about the fact that she's seen leaving for it not entering it. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see if Oda wants to make anything happen to her.
>Where is carrot?
Pedro has two bubbles for the same expression.
Well I'm a Luffy x Hancock shipper, and that's even when I know it's fucking dumb to ship in this series.
Who better a bride for a king than an empress? Their children will shake the heavens!
Seriously, can't we reach out to Oda about this already? The Monet-posting is the worst kind of shitposting there is. I can't believe it's that hard to get Oda to reply to you.
Oda's times are fucked, a year passed from when they entered the grand line and then reached the other side, but if you read it again, it isn't right.
You have to consider that stuff happens that Oda doesn't show us, like the travels from an island to another. And of course, eating, sleeping and shitting.
So, to answer your question, we know of a couple of weeks in the NW, but it may as well be a month with Oda's sense of time. You must take it with a pinch of salt.
I don't know, I don't watch youtubers.
I just guess it's one of the many possibities, I could see it. It's her, Bonny, Lola or someone new.
Hopefully not the predictable thing with a fatass/ugly daugther.
>a year passed from when they entered the grand line
No, the adventure previous to new world (East blue, Arabasta, Skypiea, Thriller.....) was only 6 months, While I agree there are some time "offscreen" mostly traveling and stuff, at most only 2 months or so has passed, more realistically around 1 month
I quite clearly remember Luffy standing in front of the Red Line saying that it had been a year, but I just checked and I was wrong. I wonder where could I ever got that idea, my bad.
In that case, they got incredibly strong in such little time holy shit the two years of training should have made them monsters
Luffy mentioned it had been a long time since they saw the red line, or something to that degree.
He never mentioned a time though and the journey from reverse mountain to sabaody took roughly 3 months of you keep track of the manga timeline.
I don't know. When we first saw her she was sitting right next to big mom. She definitely is not one of her underlings. For me everything about her screams "daughter who has to get married next".
Filler supposed to be non canon stuff, everything in the manga is canon, and thus CAN NOT be filler
Unless Dragon has an army around the world and only a handful of people in their HQ, shit's going to go down for the revolutionaries with BB coming on their surprised asses.
Yea, I had 3-4 months in my head as well. It's just that I recall reading "It's been a year" or something. My brain is probably trying to fill in some blanks or whatever. It's like that sentence with Shanks. "Losing an arm didn't weaken him".
dont worry fampai yesterday i was dead set that vander decken was a descendent of davy jones. i read through the beginning and skimmed to 100,000 vs 10 so many times. I could've sworn i read that.
I figured after some time my brain must've mixed shit up in theories I read at the time or something because davy jones isn't even mention around vander decken in the manga.
Most big time music artists in the west for example, but noone japanese comes to mind. Normally they always think they are above their audience, but I doubt Oda would be like that.
>The Monet-posting is the worst kind of shitposting there is.
Well I'm flattered, but I don't really think anything I can post will be worse than Rebeccafag.
That's a good idea. It would mean she's keeping an eye on Caesar too.
>Zoro's swords goes to him in slow motion so he can catch each one individually
Also why is he so big? I realise that he's a muscle freak but he's actually quite small in the manga. He looks weird when he's kneeling near Luffy.
>the tontattas will join the war in wano
>jack will be beaten by bian
REMEMBER HOW ODA APPARENTLY WAS OBSESSED WITH GAME OF THRONES SINCE THAT ONE DOFFY CHAPTER?
>Most big time music artists in the west for example
Now you talking shit, most artists like their audience. Only uppity cunts like REAL cunts and hipsters are the ones hating their fanbase.
Well, if you insist. I just don't understand how helping people understand that Monet is nakama is worse than turning these threads into a discussion about third wave feminism every day.
Unless you mean being wrong about Monet. Which I'm not.
reminds me of the band 311. i went to the high school they went to in early 90s, i graduated 2010 so i went like 18-20 years after they did but i had the same jazz band teacher. well our teacher got 311 to come play a gig at our school. We got to meet 3 of the members but they were so distant and acted like the entire shindig was a chore for them. It really irked me because we actually had common ground and you could tell they didn't want anything to do with us.
i hear you
Noone on Taylor Swift's or Kanye West's level would give a thought about doing even a longer Q&A with their fans, let alone meet them in person. They might act all friendly and talk all nice to them throoguh the press and concerts, but they'd never engage with them.
Oda might be similar, but only with the hardcores. He probably thinks it's inapproriate for adults to read his story and care too much.
I've always been open to her surviving and showing up as a cover story or something. One Piece death rarely means anything.
But holy shit the logic jumps they make to get their waifu on the ship is crazy.
>Zou ending on a good note
>Pedro looks cool
>Carrot might tag along
>Nami getting a buff
Pretty hype to be honest family member
i pretty much stopped listening to them after high school because, damn, they were like my idols and they wouldn't even talk to us directly, our instructor was the medium between the jazz students and them. Then after they show they left so fast, we were still packing up our equipment and they were gone, no questions, no thanks, no respect at all. alright im done blogging. it felt good to say this i havent told anyone cause i feel a bit embarrassed by it.
this joke doesn't work because there was never an atmosphere of mystery around lucy's identity. We SAW Luffy don the Lucy persona, and SAW Sabo take it over.
then Sabo reveals himself in the colosseum as Lucy.
And then King Riku announces it at the end of the arc and Gatz follows up in case anybody didn't get the message.
find a better meme
eh one piece is gonna destory redline and the home of celestial dragons
ship at fishman island takes fishmen to safety
laboon is reuinited and all blue is now reality
this is the most solid ending theory
rebeccafag may be gone
but she is here for you when you are ready
Wouldn't it be great, if she was still alive, but she was still struggling to reassamble herself due to her lack of training and shitty logia fruit? She's been going through a living hell these past few weeks trying to do that and she WILL die due to starvation and help never arriving.
By that logic, the Sogeking meme was stupid as well because Usopp revealed his face a number of times as well.
It doesn't. It's a shit theory that originated year ago on Arlong Park.
And Kanye is one of the CUNTS I was talking about, he believes he is god, so... he's a nigger in denial.
that's because Luffy and Chopper had confusion about who Sogeking was and he continually denied it. Also there is a difference between taking the mask off and revealing your identity.
Jean the Bounty hunter took Lucy's helmet in Block C and nobody found out his true identity.
So, Nami now has the Pop Green Clima Tact, it includes several whetherian devices, but it doesn't include the "magic wand".
So, were all those devices inside the Sorcery Clima Tact (the one that she used in FI) or this new CT got even more things than that one? Will Oda mention the magic wand again? Is the SCT gone without any real fights?
>I'm 19 faggot
never reveal your age on 4chan
hopefully. i would much rather see her with a magic melee staff than a weather wand.
she squared off with Khalifa and Mrs. Doublefinger so we already know she is decently capable in close combat.
She's gonna have a fat manipulation fruit. Sanji's meets her super fat and ugly, but She's obessed with him. After rejecting her she gets real cute and won't give him the time of day
>mfw Nami will use and improve her bo-staff skill from now
>Is the monetfag (here, presumably)
Well there's like seven of us, but you probably mean the theories one. Yeah, I'm here. What's up?
What do your theories think of this
