Right, that was what he wasn't conform with, thanks!

IMO, the rationale of Jinbe joining the crew is to show how much the SHs have developed. I agree with MarvelB that Jinbe is not the best choice for the SHs and there should be another merman who can fill this gap and being less famous than Jinbe (if this is what he meant ). However, looking at the current stage of the SHs, the are a world famous crew of pirates. This was strengthened during the reuniting chapters in SA. Therefore, I think it is not a bad idea to have Jinbe as a crew member because of (1) he seems one of the strongest mermen in OP (if not the strongest) and (2) Luffy needs a merman in his crew who can be reliable.

BTW, I wonder how Madam Shirly will react when she figures out that her prophecy did not occur (yet??)..

Black Beard did have a point, the new age wasn't for them. Yes, they're still strong and bad ass, but they're old. I think this point was proven with white beard, still strong and kicked a lot of ass, but he was old and part of a dying age. Rest his soul, the man died like a G.

Holy s**t, I knew that One Piece was the most popular manga in Japan, but I never knew that it sold more copies than all of the other popular mangas combined (well, short by 2 million but that's nothing)! Go One Piece !

I sure hope Oda is getting a fair slice, since a lot of artists/writers are getting ripped off by their publishing houses nowadays...

By the way, the reason why Sengoku resigned wasn't confirmed AFAIK, I think it's related to the "incident" mentioned in the latest SBS...

Yup. I read a recent study about the kind of sales that One Piece and Naruto generate, according to that study both series can sell 1 million copies within a month of its release. The difference is, One Piece can already reach the 1 million mark after a week, while Naruto needs a whole month to reach 1 million. Oda seems to be pretty well off so I guess he's getting his fair share of the sales and royalties.

i don't know if I like Jinbei joining...
if he does join then it'll be 2 characters in a row that gave me a weird feeling when they became crew members, brook & jinbei

for some reason it's not the same with these two as the rest of the crew when they joined... they seem kinda not be as "close" as the rest of the SHs...

I still dislike Brook the most though for some reason...

If Jinbe joins, he needs first a purpose on life...

that can't be "to take care of Luffy" because this is a purpose all the crewmembers share...

and it can't be "to unite the two species" too, because this is already happening.

perhaps to see to it that luffy becomes the pirate king? i think that is reason enough for jinbei to join. since he couldnt save ace he could do that

Perhaps Jinbe either accepts and joins Luffy for a while until they find Koala or he asks Luffy to search for her.

Wait, don't tell me you already forgot about Koala? That girl makes a million times more sense.

We know next to nothing about Koala. All we know is that she was a former slave whose whereabouts are currently unknown. How does she make a million times more sense than Jimbei who's had his character fully fleshed out and proven to be a great asset to the SHs?

Read my post again. I'm saying if Jinbe's purpose is to find Koala, then if he accepts and joins it will be only for a while until he finds her.

I read your post perfectly fine.

Brooke's purpose is to reunite with Laboon, but he's going to have to wait a long while until that can happen because the SHs are going to continue venturing into the NW. Sanji's goal is to find All Blue, but we know that isn't happening any time soon. See where I'm getting at with this?

The point is, if we go by your assumption that Jimbei's goal is to find Koala, that can take a VERY LONG time since her whereabouts are unknown. Who knows where she is at the moment.

^And then we have another problem. The fact Jinbe already has a gang.

Who knows, he may refuse and ask Luffy to search for her.

Jimbei can always have someone else from his gang succeed him as the new leader. Problem solved. This scenario is almost no different from Franky at Water 7 when he left his gang (of course with their encouragement and approval).
