I'm wondering more where he went afterwards, I'd bet on stowing away on the Sunny again to get to the surface as fast as possible. a fine way for the strawhats to get some loot that is if they find him <.<
One of the better chapter lately. I can't wait for this arc to end. It was rather obvious that Jinbe will joined them considering how much hints Oda had given us (one of those was the cover). Though, how would Jinbe adding to the group dynamic? He probably gonna just hang out with zoro and being manly about everything. And I think, we have been waiting long enough to see all the new bounties.
I'd rather go with this line: "we'll need that family's power to restore it". I like it better.
The sea kings are awesome creatures. They just are.
This chapter is pure epicness.

Just because no one could provide a working explanation doesn't mean there is none. If Nami were at some point in the palast ( the first time when they met Hody doesn't count) my example scenario in a previous post would've worked.
Btw, though the translation differ significantly one could derive from the sea king's talk that they aren't that old as many thought.
it's not just 'age'. franky is a quite fresh pirate; just like all other SH members.
compared to jinbe, all SH pirates are fresh and promising.
that's why, imo jinbe doesn't fit.
brooks has a different story. he is not 'old' like 90 year old grandpa. his life was practically 'stalled'. he is at least as fresh as all other members.
jinbe on the other hand has already experienced new world. he has a vast history of piracy. he sealed under the legendary FM tiger; what shall he think for 'captain' luffy now? luffy is an empty headed fool, but he has the utter respect and trust of his nakama. he even has his own kind of authority.
for me, jinbe is like an elder brother to luffy. i can't imagine him as a part of luffy's crew.
jinbe has his dreams ok but having a dream doesn't necessarily mean that he shares the same ambition with the SH pirates who all are burning to explore the sees and follow a crazy captain.
the cool headed, experienced character of jinbe would be a great benefit to the SH pirates, yes but he is imo just not lively, warm, fresh, funny and emotional enough to be a SH pirate.
imo, jinbe already lived his best times, just like rayleigh...
i won't be surprised if he rejects the offer and suggests someone else. perhaps, he was expecting that luffy would ask him to join and that's why he found someone more 'straw-hattish' than himself and even trained him/her especially for that purpose?
jinbe's bounty is over 400 millions,that's sure,it was stated recently. but I'm sure rufy's bounty has overcome jinbe's now that he has appeared again and destroyed a px with just a hit.
ahh, another great chapter of one piece. And to all those hating on strawhat for bleeding so much...give him a break. I mean he friggin did an amazing beating on that ship, in fact it needs caps to express:
ELEPHANT GATLING with armor<----wow, that was the beastiest move i have ever seen.
he did that with flesh wound from hody. So there's gotta be some blood.
anyway. looks like FI arc is wrapping up
