    I cant pretend I know everything about VAs, so I wont. xD

    However, while a high profile VA might not mean that much, a low profile VA would make her seem less likely to join.

    Isnīt every "major character for at least an arc" supposed to have a high profile VA.
    Especially in Japan, where i would guess itīs a great honor to be part of this huge franchise.
    The epic battle of BusterCall vs. Don is decided !!!
    And the results are 3:2 for Don..

    If you do not like these things, different issue, but argument against Jinbe? They are not.
    Well it depends on what your response is being directed at.

    At this point, there are no arguments against Jinbe because Luffy says he's his captain. Which means Jinbe isn't a rule-breaker, he's a rule-maker now. If for whatever reason fans assumed that 'no Strawhat should be able to breathe underwater' then Jinbe is not simply the exception to the rule, he is the rule. That's kinda how it all works with each new Strawhat member.

    In terms of his monstrous look, I think I made my case pretty clear that it's purely opinion. I mean, even personal feeling aside, Jinbei was not very high on polls until recently. He went underlooked for years, and few people really would have expected and discussed him as a crewmember. It's only in retrospect and analyzing that we get a better understanding of what it means to be a Strawhat. And even then, I don't think it's ever as simple as we see it or expect it to be.

    I still think he looks monstrous, despite what Oda feels is appropriate as a design. I think Jinbei's design is definitely cool as a character and as a Shichibukai, but I do think he clashes with some of the other characters.

    Thatīs not the issue, i mean that even without the confirmation in the manga, these are not arguments against him considering he is not the first one to represent those aspects, like i said, happened before, so in that sense, he is not a rulemaker.
    He is certainly the first one whose relationship with Luffy has been built up over several different arcs, yet his joining has been dragged on until this point, and if people interpret this as something that suggest he is not ultimately joining, i canīt dispute that at this point, since i really have no idea where Oda is going with this, but thatīs really the only thing objectively legitimate at this point that differentiates him from the rest of the crew.

    Perhaps im still not being clear enough?

    I said Jinbei is as good as joined.

    I also think his design doesn't fit as a strawhat as a personal opinion, not as an argument that he is not joining.

    I remember when people thought Franky and Brook were too weird looking for the crew. I remember when I used to think Robin didn't look weird enough. I was so disappointed with Jimbei's design initially and now I'm like, big fat guy with sharp teeth, blue skin in a Kimono? He's my bae and totally a Straw Hat.

    I remember back when I thought Chopper was too damn weird to be a main character and was going to ruin everything.

    Of course, I'd only seen his plushy form at the time and not his other transformation, but...

    I absolutely loved Jinbe's design from the get go. We all expected an enemy, big white shark guy with many teeth, something more similar to Hody. But fat kimono chief was always a great design. He is easily one of my top 3 strawhats

    The best thing about Jinbe being an undeniable strawhat is I now know for sure who my least favorite strawhat will always be. Which sounds terrible, but I'm more just neutral on him while I love the others. Jinbe's basically the perfect poster character for the camp of one piece characters I have no strong feelings for, positive or negative.

    Hadn't really noticed, but apparently at some point I stopped thinking of Jinbe as "Too strong and would ruin the power dynamic of the Strawhats" and started thinking of him as just "That high defense tanky big boy." He's really good at blocking and hitting really big, slow/immobile targets. Could be forgetting some moments though.

    I really liked Jinbe's character from the start, and it was clear that he was inevitably heading in the direction of Nakama-hood from back in Fishman Island...

    Having said that, I don't think Jinbe ever really "clicked" with me as being Strawhat material until the Totland arc... I was willing to give him a chance before, but THAT'S when Oda truly sold me on him.

    Black tea is best enjoyed with one's fellow monsters.

    WCI was what sold me on Jinbe, too. I think it's because that's when he really got to show what he really added to the crew and how his dynamic on the ship would work.

    Am I seriously the only one who thought Jimbei was a shoe-in from the time they got out of Impel Down?

    Also I think his appearance works because it sets him apart as wholly unique among the other Straw Hats.

    Nah, I think some people were rooting for him to join before he even got shown believe it or not

    For me, him summoning that squadron of Whale Sharks to help ferry everyone out safely was the clincher. Knowing what we did about Fishmen already made him a highly viable candidate, and his mastery of Fishman Karate was another strong indicator. Once he showed that he went above and beyond the abilities of any other Fishman we'd seen at the time, there was no way it could have been anyone else in my eyes, and he just continued to prove himself every time we saw him from then on. I do have to admit, at first his appearance and size put me off but the second I saw him in action, he started growing on me and I could even see me calling a plushie of him 'cute' if I saw one when I go browsing through Japantown.
