  1. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    You're too hopeful to believe that Yamato will wear anything that won't show sideboobs.
  2. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    First I'd like to see Oda finally nailing some of the Oden jokes for Yamato, at least before Yamato gives up on his second identity. And I guess Yamato would be, just like Oden, overly excited upon...

    Inoue was not Watsuki's assistant. He was an assistant in City Hunter Studios.

    One other famous Watsuki assistant is Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King).

    Had some fun when you wrote "Liffy" and then "catalust", lol. Been there, done that.

    Which comes with the irony that Korea has a huge prejudice against other drugs like weed. If a public person is known to have smoked, their career will likely end.

    Sorry, guys, but I'll give one last short answer to Andre.

    ...

    Andre, a lot of this discussion has become a little cyclical already, so I guess it's time to wrap up. You don't have to agree...
  7. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    Most of your points are correct, Syphin. (In regards to the images, I only truly care about the Usopp one, as the others are a little bit forced as an argument.)

    You're just missing that, as...
  8. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    False. The duty of a lookout been portrayed throughout the story since the very beginning and its schedule in the crew has been addressed in a SBS.
  9. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    Carrot has done it in her normal form also. If it's a mink thing or a Carrot thing I don't know.

    Russians are big competitions, but I'm pretty sure I read that koreans have them beat. Vomit and people passed out on the street is a common sight.

    A plot is about a Deus Ex Machina if it's a documentary explaining the concept. Or, in case we want to go that far, an author can be motivated to have Deus Ex Machina as a recurring device in his...
  12. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    The doomsday comparison is funny, but I don't have such feelings for random propechies that one day there will be a great lookout moment. I don't find it likely to happen for its own sake, but rather...

    No, I actually think there is good and bad Deus Ex Machina. For example, in Monty Phyton's Life of Brian, which happens during Jesus' lifetime, there's a scene where Brian falls from a cliff but...
  16. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    I don't think so. You're going from "the person must excel at the job" to "the person must be unique in the world for the job", which is a big jump in my opinion. Also, Pedro not only is dead but he...
  17. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    That's a fair point, to which people here will usually tell you that one chapter changes everything, like when Jimbe started surfing waves long after joining the crew. If it's just about checking...
  18. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    What a mess.

    The argument is NOT "we need a lookout / Carrot is a lookout / Therefore, Carrot is going to join the crew to be a lookout". It's also not "what an exciting thing, a lookout, we must...

    But the note is referring to him as Former President. It looked to me like this office is more a infrastructure to manage his "public person".

    No, it's not a Deus Ex Machina by any definition. I don't know if there's specific name for a trope like that, but you could call it a well inserted plot convenience.
  22. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    A lookout stands at the crow's nest. Nowadays, considering we have different types of naval vessels, a lookout training guidebook will probably be more generic in regards to its orientations for...
  23. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    You implied something very similar, pointing out that Carrot only acted as a lookout in Usopp's absense, which is a pointless argument considering Usopp has not acted as a lookout in 1,000 chapters...
  24. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    Usopp is not a lookout. The crew doesn't have a designated lookout. You'll find more here:

    Deus Ex Machina includes situations where the actions of a random character save the day. Dragon fits this description, so it would still be a Deus Ex Machina even if the lightning was his...

    I understand your point of view that it's both things according to your definition (and, overall, I wouldn't have a problem with things being more than one thing), but the description of Deus Ex...
  28. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    I think it's very arbitrary to say that Carrot doesn't have such a mindset. She's been very diligently at the crow's nest like in the scene I posted before and a lot of other moments throughout WCI....
  29. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    The schedule of many jobs in a ship doesn't require a full-time commitment to do it. For example, Usopp acts as a sniper only when the crew is prepared for combat (and so he spots enemy units). Sanji...
  30. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 8 - Onigashima)

    People, the crew DOESN'T have a designated lookout, instead all of them do a little bit of it. Usopp is NOT a lookout. Saying that Usopp is a lookout shows lack of understandment of the role of a...
