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

    It's because some people seem to think that the DF theory would help support Yamato potentially joining if he's a tiger (i.e. cat or "neko") That doesn't really fit the "Ni" or "Kyu" (2,9) from the...

    So if Yamato turns out to not be a white tiger, are people going to start doubting his NN potential (even though, again, the 2,9 theory doesn't apply to a tiger anyway)?

    From what I've read, the DF theory is 2,9. That would be Ni not Ne, which would be tiger-related.

    This thread sure has gotten spicy. Some people are probably going to be devastated about their NN pick after the end of this arc.

    I guess I'm just missing the significance. Luffy tells him to help Shinobu protect Momo. Even if he didn't, I have a hard time believing Yamato would sit idly by and watch Momo get attacked. That...

    Didn't Yamato say that it was only natural for him to look after Momo since he was his son? I do think he seemed skeptical when saying that, but given that Momo is the son of his idol, he didn't need...

    This is how I feel and you've stated it perfectly. Granted, Carrot had no foreshadowing at all either unless you consider "minks" at the auction house as anything of significance. Bepo was there, but...

    8 chapters is less than a volume. Are we really going with "months of build up" as a metric when something gets revealed within the span of one volume?

    It is pretty contradictory. I guess it goes back to the fact that Oda likely gender-swapped the character at the last minute after reading The Rose of Versailles. So either Oda didn't remember to...

    Oda has shown with Jinbe that he's treating NN differently in the New World, so I'm not going to assume that someone missing for 10 chapters automatically gets disqualified. This isn't Carrot's arc....

    Nope. No meta-clues. Everything is a retcon so far. If someone said that Kaido had a son like 25 chapters ago, everyone would've laughed at them. That's just how out of left field it was.

    If Yamato isn't an Oden fanboy, then Bart isn't a Luffy fanboy. And he said Momo was his son. Clearly, that's a normal thing that anyone would say, right?
