    If their ship ate a DF the Strawhats would sink, or did you forget that who or whatever eats a Devil Fruit becomes a Hammer in water.

    No, all the SHs have 2 things in common. An unique dream, and an occupation on the ship. I'm thinking the next SH nakama would be a fishman, who acts as a lifeguard for DF users. Don't know what his dream would be though.

    Re: The Search for Strawhat's New Nakama...

    the crew is seperated atm it will be imposible for any one to join before they meet toghether without braking its spirit. from that i bet it will be someone we didnt meet yet and i would put my (virtual) money on that.

    Re: The Search for Strawhat's New Nakama...

    Oda is putting in alot of work bringing in the former enemies from Luffy's past as he and his crew entered the grandline....and right before he enters the new world. Think about it, after all the other little bouts Luffy and his crew had before entering the grandline, Croc and his team were there first heavy hitters that Luffy's crew had to take on to actually step up and be ready for the adventures and dangers on the grandline with facing other pirates and such. Now before getting into the new world, Luffy's progress and strength is being shown here by comparing it to the last (or first) big/complex obstacle he had to that got him ready for the grandline. This is kinda serving as the same....he has now met five of the shicibukai and only one of the Yonkou...this is his moment to finally step up more and more into the light of being seen as more than a rookie and that he will be taken seriously probably by others in the new world. So this had to be epic.......just as his gaining a new nakama I think will not happen her in this arc. I think that since they have been talking about mermaid island for sooo long, I really have a feeling that they will gain a new nakama from there instead of this arc. I mean Oda has done well at getting us to think that he would get Margret, then Hancock, and now Bon clay. Probably before the end of this arc, we will think that even croc will join his crew. But all to no avail to not gain a new crew member.... I mean we just saw Luffy gain a new nakama in Thriller bark... I think Oda will give atleast another mini-arc or so with the entire crew together before gaining a new crew memeber.

    Re: The Search for Strawhat's New Nakama...

    My point is that once the character has joined, you can find a dream easily. But you can not say someone will not join because he doesn't have a dream. The principal reason is that we don't know yet if they have any. The dream, (like the flashback) comes when Oda develops the characters. If you take franky for Example, his dream was revealed after it was 99% sure he was joining.
    Also, even if I agree that every Strawhat has a "dream", there is some of them which dream has no relation with them joining the crew (chopper and Brook in particular). In the case of Brook, his objective to fulfill the promess he made with laboon is even in complete contradiction with him joining. Hence I find the "dream" has lost of its initial importance.

    The only person which fill the traditionnal conditions in the list is hancock and to my mind she is the one with the lowest probability to join the crew

    Re: The Search for Strawhat's New Nakama...

    Well the main reason I believe it is the dream that is the telling point is all because of one character:

    Vivi

    As you said k-dom, many people have joined the Strawhat's and later revealed a true dream (Robin, Nami, Franky and Brook all examples of varying degrees). However, whether they actually stick around is based on whether Oda can form a dream which can only be seen through by traveling with Luffy and his crew. The dream has to be not only strong enough for the character to forfeit any other option, but something Oda can work with in the future.

    Vivi had a "dream", but it was not a "Strawhat" dream, though by all recounts she is a retired-Strawhat. Almost all of Oda's characters have dreams, but they are very often not "Strawhat" dreams.

    So in a way, I look at characters now and think "Ok this person has a dream. Is it powerful enough and does it work with Luffy's?" As mentioned, none of the poll really has a dream of this level and though they "could" develop a dream of this level in the future, there should still be hints.

    For example:
    Brooke could have been thought of as a true candidate after mentioning Laboon.
    Franky after Tom's flashback.
    etc.

    Some hints are more obvious than others. Some don't reveal their dreams until well after it's 100% that they'll join. Some don't even have enormous hints.

    But all in all, in hindsight that's what clinches it. Foresight is of course a little harder especially as most rules can be thrown off by Robin alone, but the dream still prevailed to some extent.

    Sorry readers: taking a break from my One Piece reviews. Though I love doing them, One Piece Reviews are actually not near the top of my to-do list. Perhaps one day I'll return and do them properly.

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama...

    if vegapunk arc will be shown probably luffy will have a devil fruit scientist crew...for them to upgrade and boost their df powers...plus history of the df fruits will be unfold to us!!!...so a scientist member for SHs should not be took for granted..^^..

    at first i wish hancock would join but i accepted it now due to the fact that she doesn't have any position on the ship...plus she is a shichibukai nad a country to protect..but ODA's mind is a complete mystery will never know..only he can decide and tell..

    lastly, a fishman like cocoro-san should join the hilarious crew...a mermaid with a human appearance is perfect!!!

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama...

    well, a scientist crewmmember would only negate ussop's creative abilities... upgrades to weapons is what he does usually (referring to the pachinko and the clima-tact). so, i believe a scientist crewmate is unlikely... what they need imo is a real pet(not chopper) which abilities can synergize with a weak crewmember like ussop so as to strengthen his battle skills (but then again, he has sogeking alter-ego so maybe he doesn't need anymore) or a fishman (which probably not one of the introduced characters yet)..

    they just need a good fighter that can help out luffy and the crew at anytime, but is a watchout guy because zorro doesn't need to be a watchout guy.A teleporter would be good.
    i might be able to kill you with my cuteness.

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama...

    Though I voted for Boa Hancock, I also know that it has a very (very very very) small probability of joining SH.
    1. She is the empress of the Kuja warriors (homeland attachment.. too strong..)
    2. She's a Shichibukai for the sake of protecting her island
    3. If she's to join SH, who will replace her as the empress? Her sisters? Unlikely

    well I could be wrong, since I'm a mere human, and not Oda-sensei

    I voted just for the sake of having fun looking at it. Boa Hancock's love-struck expressions. Priceless.
    (and moreover, especially after this)

    I personally think Bon Clay will follow Emporio Ivankov (and become his/her First Mate, no pun intended).. he worships Ivankov, willing to go down to ID's Lv 5 to accompany Luffy and to see Ivankov; and knowing this Luffy will probably tell Bon Clay to go with Ivankov (I can see lightning-quick approval from Sanji, if he's still 'normal', that is ), if Bon Clay ever ask Luffy for him to join SH.

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama...

    For the moment, there are no searchs for the next SH, as the SH crew has been spread over the world. Stop about that. It is not so easy to enter the crew as Zoro said it : to enter the crew, the first prerogative is to have met the crew, not only the captain.
    Maybe a future SH later as they will reunite but I really doubt about it. I think the fact that Kuma has split them can be seen as the fact the SH crew is complete. That seals symbolically the SH crew for me. Moreover, symbolically, the first part of GL has been crossed : it fits well with the sealing of the crew.
    Shanks had new nakamas on the NW like Rockstar, WB did too, but the SH crew is an exception as it is a small crew.

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama...

    Im expecting the last crew member to be a girl because it would fit well in the SH, especially a DF user. I thought about Margaret(though shes not a DF user) since he would fit well with Nami and Robin but them he left for impel down without her so...i guess it will be a new character or Hancock who fit well in my assumption.

    With the addition of a new DF user they would have 5 non users and 5 users. lol

    Also, it is known that Luffy wanted 10 members on the first hand so, thats why im expecting one more.

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama...

    I just find it odd that if they gain a member here before the New World and adhere to Luffy's very rough estimation early in his adventure of only having 10 crew members then that means the crew will not gain a single member in the second half of the Grand Line in the New World.
    The OG that ran Bleach for near a decade is no more.
    Cheers to a boss villain, I tip my hat to you Aizen

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama...

    you counted luffy in that
    luffy said he wanted 10 crewmates so 11 in all
    1)zoro
    2)nami
    3)ussop
    4)sanji
    5)chopper
    6)robin
    7)franky
    8)brooke
    9)???
    10)???

    we have two more crewmates to go
    personally the crew needs a fishman (perhaps one they meet at fishman island cuz none of these characters now do the crew any justice)
    and an ex villain like someone who the crew beat or luffy beat and then he becomes a crewmate cuz they shared a common goal
    (perhaps buggy since his crew has started moving on without him plus since he is the SH's FIRST PIRATE enemy he stands a good chance)
    i have no idea what the ex enemy crewmate would do but it would certainly be interesting seeing him and the crew react around the other

    Do not forget that Thousand Sunny could be counted as a nakama. After all, that was what had finally happened with the Merry-Go.
