    I'm not taking sides, but I will say if you don't like someone's arguments or feel they're not open to anything, just don't argue with them. Or report them if you think they're being deliberately...

    But there's still no hook like any of those examples for Yamato. The cup's shadow, the name drops, those are hooks to something that can be built on later. The mask, some hint of it, something other...

    And that's well and good. Yamato's a great character and deserves some spotlight. I just don't see it as being an indicator of joining the crew, since there's no shortage of great, important...

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

    Chopper was probably the closest thing to an apprentice the crew could have had, but that was never his thing, and I don't believe it'll be a thing for the Straw Hats until maybe the epilogue of the...

    It all makes sense, except that sixth thing. If there's anything Databook Green taught me, it's that his core group of Straw Hats has been firmly in place from the beginning. Could Yamato be a last...

    Jinbe ended up on vol. 64 with the entire crew: that's the standard Yamato ought to match, but right now he's just with Luffy and the Akazaya. Conversely, Jinbe has yet to be on a single WSJ cover,...

    It's relatively rare for Straw Hats in general. Jinbe still hasn't been on a single one.

    Kanjuro had the hat placed over him, a thematic equivalent of covering him with a shroud. There wasn't a need for any of the Akazaya to say anything: he's done.
