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

    To be honest, if you can't bear the toxicity (which arguably doesn't actually exist, and I say that as someone who supports Carrot and Yamato equally), you probably need to distance yourself from...

    The definition isn't an opinion.

    The Main character is the most important character that the plot revolves around.

    So it's fair if you disagree, but it doesn't change the way the definitions of...

    Re: Wano has Failed the StrawHat Characters

    All of this can happen st the end of the Arc easily, when there is no longer any major conflict to deal with.

    For Nami, Zoro and Usopp, and Sanji, I'd consider them closer to Main Supporting characters since we have much more POV focus on them than most of the rest of the crew. But in general, they act more...

    A main character can still be added to tie in plot points, usually by being a deuteroganist or secondary/tertiary main character. In Robin's particular case, her being there to tie up certain plot...
