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

    I feel like Vivi has a very good reason to go to Laugh Tale given her status as a Nefertari, descendants of one of the 20 families that founded the WG and were involved in the void century, as well...

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

    I'm not denying that Carrot doesn't get moments focused on her. My point was that she got an exceptional amount of screen time by merely being present in scenes that were not focused on her. The...

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

    But WCI was an irregular arc, and Carrot did benefit from that. In a conventional arc, the Straw Hats sail to an island, anchor their ship, disembark, make some friends, fight some enemies, make...

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

    WCI was an irregularly structured arc that, as a result, gave Carrot far more prominence than she would have had in a more conventionally structured arc. She cannot carry herself solely based on WCI,...

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

    My problem with Carrot is the same it's always been; I don't find her interesting in the slightest. Yes, she can be shoved into the general framework of a nakama, but beyond that, she's just so...

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

    Anything left for Carrot can be easily fulfilled without her joining the crew. Oda has given us a general sense for how the endgame of One Piece will play out and part of that endgame will be a...

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

    I am personally against the use of parallels as a justification for a character to join the crew. Like saying Yamato needs because of Oden parallels, or Carrot needs to join because of Ino-Neko...

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

    What even is that logic though?

    You're essentially saying that any interpretation of Carrot's "Purpose" is invalid if that purpose could have been fulfilled by somebody else. You're saying that...

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

    I think it's a given that we receive a conclusion to those arcs regardless of Carrot's status as a crew mate. All the mysteries of the past will be revealed to us. Luffy's actions at the end of the...

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

    I would agree that Carrot doesn't need a flashback. What I'm trying to say is that she lacks the kind of depth that flashback provides. It's not just about experiencing a tragedy. It's how that...

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

    Flashbacks are important though. They provide a deeper look at a character's past, showing us their motivations and how they've grown over time. It gives us a better understanding of a character...

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

    What Carrot really needs right is not simply focus, but depth. The kind of depth that forms the narrative that would carry her into a position with the crew. The problem she's had so far is that Oda...
