LOL, How desperate are we for discussion that we are speculating on whether or not Sengoku has children ?

Garp didn't even want to become an admiral 22 years ago, so why would he want to become a fleet admiral now? And besides, the government may not be too keen to promote him nowadays, seeing as he has world-class criminals for kinfolk.



Anyway, if Sengoku were forced to retire for some reason, perhaps the government would consider bringing former fleet admiral Kong out of retirement? For some reason, I don't see any of the current 3 admirals rising up in rank anytime soon......

I agree. Kizaru and Aokiji are obviously not a smart choice, and Akainu seems too ruthless and not a cunning strategist at all, despite being the most 'focused' admiral and believing in all this thing of Absolute Justice. My guess would be that Tsuru, as an old strategist and second in command, could rise up to Fleet Admiral rank in case of something happens to the Afro Buddah .

Hmm.... I find Nami, Robin and Brooke's choice of countries to be rather curious, myself.....
I thought Chopper would be Russian, since he came from a winter country with a strong medical education and it looks like his entire arc is loosely based on the Russian revolution. Ussop on the other hand looks Jamaican and Brooke resembles a British gentleman. I wonder if Oda just picked them off the top of his head.

Next episode of the anime contains the long awaited appearance of Jimbei. Anime News Network has confirmed that Jimbei will be voiced by Daisuke Gouri (who I believe to be the perfect choice for this role).

Here are a few of the characters Daisuke Gouri has played in the past:

Mr. Satan (Dragon Ball Z)
King Cold (Dragon Ball Z)
Dorry The Giant (One Piece)
Rockstar (One Piece)
Robin Mask (Kinnikuman)

So yeah. We can expect Jimbei to have a deep voice and to sound like a freaking beast. Very fitting, I must say .

^Heh, awesome. Yes, that's definitely an awesome choice of voice actor for Jinbei. I should check out the anime soon.....

Yeah, I'm just not sure if any of the current 3 admirals are due for a promotion anytime soon. I mean, Akainu's too violent, Aokiji's too laid back, and Kizaru.... hoo boy, Kizaru. While he's my favorite admiral, I admit that I have trouble taking the guy seriously. I mean, not only does he have that semi-permanent grin on his face, but he responds to damn near everything with "Oh my.... these guys sure are scary!" Methinks Borsalino is a little too goofy for the fleet admiral status.....



But then again, I suppose I shouldn't be so hasty to say such a thing, since we know next to nothing about Sengoku's predecessor, Kong. Who knows what wierd traits THAT guy may have had.....

I disagree completely, although you may or may not have a point with Kizaru. We don't know much about Aokiji and virtually nothing about Akainu. Being ruthless has nothing to do with how smart you are, so I don't see how that makes Akainu ineligible. If you ask me Sengoku is just as ruthless as Akainu, Akainu just seems more ruthless due to the fact that he kills people himself, whereas sengoku has people do that for him.

Sengoku, seems willing to make allowances for certain things, where as, I don't see Akainu doing any of that, infact i could actually see him being for more drastic or ruthless than the others. Kizaru on the other hand seems goofy, but well rounded at the same time. So i would say he is fit. Aokiji on the other hand is a slacker of sorts, so much that his behaviour was mentioned by one of the Gorosei., in an unfavorable light i might add.

For all we know Sengoku may go nowhere, but his failures as a leader our mounting up, even if he wasn't involved in them.

I don't know... although we've seen with Aokiji, Garp and Sengoku (or maybe even with Smoker) that the Marine's ranks are like a ladder, and promotions are given step by step (captain, commodore, rear admiral and so on), I'm still inclined to believe that Tsuru, despite being a vice admiral - but being second in command -, would rise up to the Fleet Admiral position. She's experienced, nicknamed 'great tactician' and... oh well, strong enough to place herself among the Marine's lines during this war.

But, following some Shounen logics, I guess that Fleet Admiral position is to be fulfilled by one of the Admirals anyway, so...

And really, it's highly certain for me that, if someone's going to lose one of his big players, won't be the Marines, but Whiterbeard Pirates

Keyword "seems." I can't recall an instance where Sengoku seemed particularly merciful. Him and Akainu have displayed the same amount of ruthlessness so far.

I think he means in terms of internal matters and personal matters.

for example, take Aokige's behaviour. Sengoku may turn a blind eye to Aokige turning a blind eye to the strawhats when he met them. But Akainu might name him a traitor and hanged him because of that.

Although it may be that this no-nonsense appraoch is what the marines really need to get rid of all the "evil" pple.

That's assuming Akainu and cant take down Aokiji

Does Mihawk trains or fight like Zoro?
Being the nr1 swordsman doesn't mean that he can do wtf Zoro can.
Can WB do wtf ANYBODY in OP can do?
