Alright, so a friend of mine and I were discussing this just a few moments ago, and I checked on the "who/what/where" FAQ and nothing came up. So, basically, where do you guys think Elbaf is located on the Grand Line, in relation to the "New Wolrd"?
It seems, on one hand, that it would have to be located in the New World. After all, that's all the talk as far as guys like Smoker are concerned…and I think we can all agree that the Strathats are going to be getting there soon. There simply can't be that much time left before they get to the New World, since they have to finish up on Thriller Bark and then hit Fishman Island (or Mermaid Island, whatever it is).
On the other hand, the Strawhats have met their fair share of Giants thus far on their trip, and all of them have mentioned Elbaf. You'd think that, if Elbaf were in the New World, one of them would have mentioned something to that extent.
So yeah, just seeing if anyone else has a better idea of this than I do...which half of the Grand Line is Elbaf located on?
