The 2nd Log: Report Time
The 3rd Log: Obahan Time
The 5th Log: Jingi-nai Time
The 6th Log: Chopper Man
The 7th Log: Monster Time
Yellow Databook: Space Time
10th Treasures: Red-Hair of Class 3 - Sea Time
The 10th Log: Märchen Time
The 13th Log: Family Time
The 14th Log: Ed Sullivan Show


So my questions are: [What is "Family Time" all about?] and [Why is there an Omake named "Ed Sullivan Show"?] also [How does Eiichiro Oda know about the Ed Sullivan Show?]
Only Chopper Man through Monster Time have been animated. Space Time through Family Time are manga omake that haven't been animated.

Family Time features the Strawhats as if they were a family, each character has these roles:

Luffy: 4th son
Zoro: 1st son
Nami: Daughter
Usopp: 3rd son
Sanji: 2nd son
Chopper: 5th son
Robin: Mother
Franky: Father
Brook: Grandfather

I don't know what the Ed Sullivan Show omake is though, must be new.

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly here. Are you talking about Logia users in particular? Whenever they transform into their element, their clothing too becomes the element itself. Upon reverting back into their normal/human form, the clothing reappears.

As for why that happens, it's to avoid nudity I would think . For example, remember when Luffy hit Crocodile with his Gomu Gomu no Axe in the desert (Round 1)? He smashed Crocodile's sandy body into the ground. However, If Crocodile's clothes didn't change into sand, they would simply drop down to the floor, and by the time Croc would materialize/resurface from a distance away from where he was hit, his body would be completely naked of course. That would definitely be inappropriate to see in a shonen manga.

Well okay to avoid nudity but what is Ms. Doublefinger's exuse, I never knew her heels and her cuffs count as part of her body.

Also one final thing, Smoker can turn his body into smoke and because of this he cant get hit (Im only on episode 120 which is still in the Arabasta arc) but if things go through him because he is smoke how is he able to grab things?

You just saw the fight between Zoro and Mr.1, right? Well, Mr.1 made his legs into steel blades even though he has pants on.

You're thinking too much, my friend . That's just how his ability works. It's specifically meant for capturing people.

Yes, I remember such info as part of the representations being made for them. Of course I'd have expected to know about such in Oda's SBS section and not anywhere else. < "Oh well."

Perhaps you or someone else could research on that omake by whatever means possible.

Bonus question: Will there be a logbook that features Brook?

Oda was asked that question himself and said in the SBS that Devil Fruits change treats clothes as part of the user's body. This was only stated because of the Shonen audience(much like what Blackbeard said).

Has Oda ever been asked about the idea of Fishmen/Mermaids eating Devil's Fruit?

That and maybe giants too.

That's actually a good question. I don't see why they couldn't.

But then again they both already have advantages over regular humans so Oda probably saw no reason to give them DF's because of that.

Does anyone feel that Aphelandra is the attractive thin version of Marigold? Aphelandra does look like Marigold when she was thin.

Do you think that Aphelandra is the embodiment of what Marigold might have looked like had she not endure the trama that she experienced as a slave? If Marigold had had the carefree lifestyle as a child, I doubt that she would have looked the way she does now. Since she idolize her older sister, Handcock, Marigold might have done everything in her power to become as beautiful as her sister. Thus, I what to know of your opinion as to whether my argument of Aphelandra, as far as her outter beauty, might be the thin version of Boa Marigold?

The only hint we have is something Luffy said at the beginning of the series.

He said he wanted at least 10 members. Whether that includes himself or not is unclear.

With the current 9 (Luffy included in that 9), that means if we decide to follow what Luffy said, the Straw Hats should have 10 or 11 members by the end of the series.

However we could ALSO have just the current 9 to the end of the series or we could end up with more. It's impossible to be sure at this point.

Luffy wanted a Fishman in his crew. Don't forget that. Seems that he's been getting what he wants.

The latest episode of the anime ends halfway through the 535th chapter of the manga.

If you wish to continue MAKE SURE to read the latter half (starts around page 12) of chapter 535 as it has stuff that isn't covered by the anime yet.
