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

    There's a lot of merit in your thoughts. The problem, as I see, is that Oda hasn't introduced a redeemable/good Kurozumi that could signal the end of the clan feud. Some people theorized Tama would...

    The thing is, I’m feeling that companionship and acceptance will come from the samurai. Even the Kurozumi persecution fits as a setup, as the samurai and the people of Wano accepting the child of...

    When Marineford ended, I was afraid I was wrong, but still trusted my instincts so I kept waiting for clues in Fishman Island. When his flashback came out, I thought it was a done deal, but then the...

    Three Straw Hat members joined since I started reading weekly.

    First was Franky. I didn't count on him, I was on team Paulie. Paulie seemed like the shipwright, while Franky seemed set on just...

    Yeah, Oda is cutting corners in this arc everywhere. There's a lot of "tell" instead of "show". Just like the many off-screen fights.

    I’ll disagree there because I feel if the prophecy had been fulfilled and the shadows were just the scabbards, the story itself would confirm it somehow, most likely via the narrator or a character...

    Re: Chapter 1,027: Danger Beyond Imagining

    My two cents:

    - I don't think Luffy will win 1v1. This feels more like he will stall Kaido (like Yamato was doing) while everything else is resolved. Then the "nive shadows" will gather and we...

    Someone needs to understand what "At least for now" means.

    Well, it was kinda weird, but he was flying by improvisation (and with his eyes closed) before, so he wasn't really aware of what he was doing, just like in Punk Hazard. Now, Yamato is teaching him...

    If I recall correctly, Luffy never learned Chopper's name before he joined, thought. So it was more a case of Luffy not knowing how to call him, rather than knowing but still calling him improperly.

    While I'm not a Carrot supporter, I reckon she needs at least a resolution, and this fight certainly wasn't it.

    Re: Volume 101 Predictions/Discussion

    So, will Volume 101 be 10 chapters (1016-1025) or 11 chapters (1016-1026) long?
    I’d bet ob the former, as Volume 100 had 11 chapters, but both 1025 and 1026 are good endings.
