Actually Brook was a captain.
Zoro is the swordman. Or at least for One Piece world there are pirate posts like "swordman" or "sniper". He was never referred as First Mate in the manga.
Because of that I feel that someone stronger than Zoro or Sanji would eventually...
There is a anime filler scene that show a Devil Fruit coming from the deep of the ocean to the surface. While it's just a filler scene, I think that's quite accurate, and would explain the "sea mitology" that surround the Devil Fruits.
Either way, I agree when you say that Blackbeard used the Yami Yami no Mi to absorb the Gura Gura no Mi from Whitebeard's body.

We know, by Oda, that when someone dies, his DF reappear somewhere in the world...
So, for example, somewhere right now, the Fire DF that Ace had has reappear...
All of those info are not in the manga right now and the characters have no idea about this (same for the readers if they don't read the Q&A), so it has to be told by someone at some point.
And I think it could be by a fishman who ate a DF and is studying them so that he can understand them and find a way to nullify them, so that he can start swimming again.

i don't like the DF user fishman idea but if you insist on a fishman who ate a DF, it'd be cool only if his DF alllows him to fly. a fish who can't swim but fly... what's more funny than that?
Its hard to theorize about the next crew member without having herd the exact quote from Oda, I don't thing that Arlong or Enel will fit the bill. if its a fish-man then it will probably be Hachi, and Enel would never serve under another. The big question is have the strawhats currently defeated the new member. A defected Smoker or a restored Kuma would be great.
Kuma on the other hand is a cyborg like franky, we wont get 2 of those but maybe he comes back to the revolutionary army. Hoping so
Moria I dont like, and he still has a crew of his own that wants him back. I dont think we'll get somebody not well liked and lets just face it, the moria arc was not Odas masterpeice
I like the idea of a new strawhat being a previous boss, and just for the record characters like hachi and perona are lackeys not bosses. That said, I've been thinking for a while now that it would be cool if Aokiji would join the strawhats. Now this would have to be much further down the road when the current strawhats have gotten a little stronger and developed their haki so he wouldn't be totally overpowered anymore, of course. BUT, he's been pretty much the only boss who hasn't really tried to harm the strawhats (and he saved robin in the past and let the strawhats escape several times already) and it would set them up for greatness; I mean stealing a former admiral? They'd be totally famous, and feared, for that and it would set them up as contenders with the yonkou.
Anyway, this is only really plausible if a new crew member comes from past characters, and or bosses, tho it seems like Oda prefers to introduce fresh new characters. Oh yeah there's always smoker i guess but between the two Aokiji would fit the strawhats better what with his lazy, sleeping all day, attitude and what not. So for what it's worth, I hope this rumor turns out to be true.
It seems quite unlikely but, if the next crew mate is a fishman/mermaid there's a possibility that the mermaid princess may join the SH in their adventure.
Unlikely because, a story with a princess already occurred with Vivi... yet she's the only fish character mentioned but unseen. I would really love her joining in just to see sanji's reactions lol
So... next crewmate or just regular story character ?
I think the strawhats next Nakama will be a Fishman. I'm not sure what his special quirk or ability will be though. The crew seems pretty well rounded as it is. This might be the last crew member. Maybe he'll be a genius when it comes to battles or something. Or he'll be the creator of Fishman Kung fu (NOT the Fishman Karate that Jimbei does).
Wow, I think I've convinced myself that the next Nakama will definitely be the last.
I think the next crew member will be a brand new character, currently it seems a Fishman is the prime candidate. There's been talk about a Fishman who has eaten a devil fruit. Personally I think it's a great idea and maybe Chopper has developed a medicine that nulls the devil fruits power and allows the person/fish to swim for a few minutes or something, similar to the rumble balls.
However, I think with Luffy we're gonna see an alliance of Pirates, similar to that of Whitebeard. Boa has allied her crew with Luffy. I like the idea of Perona becoming the boss of the apes/monkeys, maybe she will go out to sea and ally herself with the Straw Hats because of Zoro. Jimbei has allied with Luffy and will probably stay at Fishman Island to protect it in Luffy's name. Iva will probably also follow suit and ally with Luffy because he's Dragon's Son and because of Sanji. So those people are probably out of the question to be new crew mates.
Maybe this will stop the off topic in the Ch.600 thread? About the "2929":
There's some weird looking text with a theorie in the SBS of chapter 583. I don't really get the introduction but the reader (pen name "Shankus Love") brings up a theory which seems to me as if Shankus Love listed up all DF users and counted the katakana somehow like this:
Luffy -> GO.MU.GO.MU -> 184.108.40.206
Chopper -> HI.TO.HI.TO -> 220.127.116.11
Robin -> HA.NA.HA.NA -> 18.104.22.168
Brook -> YO.MI.YO.MI -> 22.214.171.124
And then he looked up which numbers weren't within the sequence of numbers from 1 to 10 (as I said, I don't get the introduction, so I guess he's referring to the crewmembers) and finds 2 and 9 missing. Read in Japanese "2" is "ni" (like in "nitouryuu" <-> "two swords style") while "9" is "kyuu" (like in "kyuutouryuu" <-> "nine swords style"). So he mixes them up and comes to the conclusion that only a "nikyu nikyu no mi" user will become the next nakama... so he guesses it's Kuma.
But Oda only seems to fool around and starts his "funny acting"... You know, whenever he acts like that ideas and theories by fans are pretty much unlikely - otherwise Whitebeard would hide bananas in his beard and be able to take it off his face to use it as boomerang to play with his little dog "Stephane" (taken from Vol. 58 SBS).
So the answer to the question if Kuma joins the Mugiwara Kaizoku-dan, I would rather reply by "no".
If someone wants to translate it:
i dunno where i said it b4 , but i really think that SH need a blacksmith . I mean he could help Franky and maybe even Ussop and ofcourse he will help Zolo in various stuff . He might even make a sword onpower / even stronger than the 12 highest grade swords .
Then they also need a helmsman .... seriously its like anyone who knows nothing is driving the ship [but then again in most famous pirate movies , thats the captains job , but Luffy isnt really that type of a captain]
Oh sorry, i dont watch the anime. heheh....... oh and THM Nindo, i love being proved wrong, but can u tell me exactly where it is said that the DF appears again? i would love to know XD
Oh and the fillers are many of the times, made by the anime ppl, not by the author itself. At least thats true for some animes

Here's a direct quote of the volume:
So... maybe that professor that they will meet will be the fishman that will join the crew that I've been talking about!Quote:
OOO, ic XD thx. I thought it was in the Actual MANGA. I read manga online so sadly enough, I cant see these thing :O
A female fishman, without any DF power and also not Caimie and not merfolk....
I already said that the job could be as a hunter, for getting food in open ocean (seeing on how many times this has been a problem for the crew, I think it would be a very useful character) also to have some control of Fishman Karate with the ability to control water to a certain degree as Jimbei, this will provide the group with another crewmemeber with means to attack Logia users (the other one being Luffy as we dont not yet about any other member using Haki for certain).
I dont really see a fishman eating a DF voluntarily, why would they sacrifice not been able to go to the sea ever again for a power, it kinds of takes away their identity.
Also someone commented about a DF that can control7become water, but I would be almost positive that this DF does not exist, simply because it would go against the principle of standing water being DF users weakness (if you become water then you dieeeee....... is kind of suicidal, "he drowned in hymself")
