When you say literally nobody said that do you mean just in this thread or at all?
Cuz there have been Carrot and next nakama thread discussions going on in spoiler threads, chapter threads, and wherever else on this forum.
Nobody said that at all in this forum. People who root for Carrot have always set Wano as a deadline, ending at the stowaway theory.
You really can’t back that up with any proof but okay. All of the Carrot for nakama posters are all on the same page about when they’ll stop carrying on their Carrot for nakama talk.

...Therefore, if Carrot wants to join and tag along again, there's no reason that I see why Luffy would turn her down. He's familiar enough with her, more familiar than he initially was with Robin when they met outside of curiosity, and they are perfectly fine friends as it is. If Carrot invites herself, like when she stows away again, Luffy is gonna roll with it and let her. If anything of her character stirs up, then so be it. There's plausibility here, that's all I'm reinforcing. The only thing stopping Carrot is herself.
EDIT: Found another.

...Contrary to what Shift believes, I'm of the belief that Carrot doesn't officially join the crew when Wano concludes, but will stowaway (again), follow them to the next island which hopefully will be Elbaf so that her interest in giants might be shown, and by then we'll have more insight into her end goal as well as purpose. She needs time to develop, maybe she'll grow more than we hypothesize in this arc, but I fail to understand how she won't continue being around the Straw Hats when Pedro's last words were to know their significance and then peeps are saying she simply goes away thereafter.
EDIT: Another one.

She has shown many times that she can do whatever she wants with no one's approval. She has a a responsibility to her people? Where was that ever shown? The moment her status as a Kingsbird became null and void, she yeeted herself off Zou to help out the crew on her own volition and continues to do whatever she wants on her own volition. She's a complete independent variable. So if she wants to stow away again to seek her adventure or further her goals, she's gonna do it.

This is only a problem if Luffy's actively recruiting. I think she'll either stow away again or, if that's too similar to Robin, straight up ask to join. That's a dynamic we haven't seen yet in the series. Brook was already asked and the grand fleet thing was extremely official and ritualized, but a character asking to join the crew with the same level of emotion and determination that Luffy usually asks people to join would be interesting.
I've said this many times, this is just the most recent I could find and I know I'm not the only one who has said something along this ballpark.
I don't know why you guys like acting rude towards people who support Carrot as the next nakama and have had their reasons all these years. It's been a fact, in all the years I've spent in this thread, the goalposts have consistently moved against Carrot to promote other people's agendas.
Carrot appearing on Volume 88 alongside the Straw Hats don't mean anything, but Yamato appearing on Volume 100 in a side by side view by Ace does.
Carrot being on merchandise labeled as "The Straw Hat Crew" doesn't mean anything and it was rationalized as the only panel they could get with Jinbe despite the double spread panel on Chapter 989 of the Straw Hats. But Yamato being on a towel line alongside the Straw Hats? Complete confirmation. (I'll find pictures later).
- Carrot being relied on by Luffy to protect the ship with the other Straw Hats in his stead in Chapter 878 doesn't indicate he views her as a fellow nakama, but Luffy ordering Yamato to protect Momonosuke in Chapter 988 shows she's taking orders from Luffy as a captain. Already nakama!
Like these arguments are exhausting. If you're going to debate, then debate, but some of you guys, you especially, should have learned by now not to count your chickens before they hatch. If people want to debate that Carrot is going to be the last nakama, we can. If Deicide wants to argue that its going to be Hancock, he has every right to. This is a thread to debate such things. Show some respect.
