Well if Jimbei refused for now and said to ask him some other time i'm positive he won't ever be a true nakama of the SH's ( meaning to join them on their journey ) , he will be a nakama in name only just like Vivi , a more fitting word i think would be an ally of the SH's ....i guess this proves that he can't accept Luffy as his captain just yet and in a way i kinda understand him 'cause he is a pirate almost as infamous as Luffy and not in name only
Overall i'm happy to know the worst passed and everyone is enjoying the party
yes i make right prediction long time ago haha http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...pon?highlight= someone made b**chy comment about my prediction. Eat your word .

Waow! THis is gonna be an awesome chapter.
Jinbei refusing ( )
More Ancient History
Poseidon is Weakhoshi! :O
And the party!
I can't wait
I think luffy will not force Jinbe since luffy have a lot of respect to Jinbe. Maybe in the future Jinbe will be forced to join SH but not for now. But i wish they can recruit someone that know how things work and how to go to the new world.
I'd find it awesome if:
1. Grown-up Koala suddenly appears or;
2. Navy try to capture Jinbe with the Straw Hats saving him.
It seems to me Pluton is a weapon that can destroy all of the islands and create essentially a giant water world that would rid the world of devil fruit users (since they'd have no land to live on) but with Joy Boy and Noah the promise is that Poseidon would command the sea kings to pull the boat around on the surface for devil fruit users and humans to live until the time came when islands re-emerged.
Finally a chapter worth discussion for. I won't say anything more at this point, but it seems a chapter worth rating "epic". Anything involving the true history is a win. Waiting for the scanlation.
Very Clever Oda, but I won't fall for it, I see what you did, you revealed Weakhoshi to be the ancient weapon so I focus on that instead of Jimbei not joining, but I won't be a puppet like the rest of them , Make Jimbei join the SH now damnit!!!!!!! Please?
Like, let it be a case like all the rest of SH's refuse to join at first because of some sense of duty and then they end up joining afterwards, so Oda if you could *cough*letLuffydestroythesupportpillarsthatholdFItothebottomofandthenletitfloattothesurface*cough* then Jimbei will have no choice but to join, or send some marine ships down there to capture Luffy and then let Jimbei have to escape with him, or let the King banish Jimbei from the island since they can't hobour a known pirate and join the WG. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh yeah Weakhoshi is the ancient weapon.......very interesting I wonder how this will come into play later on.
hmm well. i think jinbei might indeed join somewhen later. There was a lot of discussion whether he was too strong and would destroy the monster trio. maybe that's indeed the reason. well not jinbei'S reason, but oda's. the other might still need 2-3 arcs and get stronger. But i'm totally positive that we will see him again and that he will join forces with luffy in one big battle against the marines. especially akainu
and i'm surprised about shirahoshi. but it really makes sense. and again it is proved that luffy's most dangerous ability is to make everybody his friends. now he basically has power over poseidon... if the world government knew this his bounty would explode even further. If you summarize it...
Luffy is basically the ally of:
- red hair pirates
- whitebeard pirates
- 1 shichibukai (snake princess) 1 former shichibukai (jinbei). maybe even hawkeye has a bit of a bond to zoro now.
- the revolutonaries army (being controlled by his father)
- one of the greatest heros of the marines (garp, more or less..)
- has friends on nearly every island of the first half of the grand line
Strawhats are already way more powerful than any other supernova crew, and maybe even more powerful than any other shichibukai crew. they are really coming close to yonkou level in regards of power. not individual power of especially captain and first mate. but if you talk about influence
The arc is not over huh? Well I expect this to turn out like Enies Lobby actually, we all thought that when they buried Marry the arc ended. But then we got information on Dragon, Garp, Coby and all the story about the New World. So maybe a flashback or something here with Joy Boy? If this is not the end I wonder why Oda waited so long to show us these awesome facts and history?
And Jinbe, well I am disappointed not that he did not join but where he says for Luffy to come again and ask him? I do not get that part? Doesn't he know that Luffy is headed for Raftel and the only way to return is when the journey is over? Unless some twists with another arc on FI? TO be fair since the arc is not over we still do not know if Jinbe will not except, he is uncertain now.
wth man.. its not like they will go back to FI again? so then to make jimbei a member, they have to reroute back to FI or some other saga that involves fishman... sigh.. i dunno, for me it spoil the moment for me..
enjoy this awesome chapter
I was a bit disappointed when Jinbei refused, I got a bit bored about the partying but the revelations at the end made up for it, so I rated it good. I'm mostly disappointed about having to wait another week, I guess.
Shirahoshi being Poseidon is obviously interesting, but I don't see any immediate danger. Can't see every island being flooded or anything like that. An epic history lesson non the less.
About Jinbei, I'd also expect two possibilities going forward.
First, I can't see him not join the SH at all, for me it's a question of when will it happen.
It is very possible that he is still stronger than all of the SH and therefore he cannot join yet, so we would be on power up away from this event. But, how would they meet Jinbei again, it's a long shot.
Second possibility is having him clean up all that he has to do in a very short time and Luffy being extremly persistent once more. Also, being thrown out of FI due to being a pirate and having technically broken the law by transferring blood to Luffy could force Neptune to make Jinbei leave, that isn't out of the question yet, so I'll rate this possibility a bit higher.
I cannot imagine him being a Nakama the way Vivi is. If you look at the pictures, he fits in way too good already and he does not have to lead a country or anything else which would require him for life.
So, I'd say he will have joined prior to the SH leaving FI, with his unfinished business being an opportunity to show events from his past and maybe even declaring his dream.
Bonus: I hope Neptune has got some more information about the Void Century. I find it amazing that the Fishman royalty was able to pass on stories from 800years back. Also it was great how he handled the prisoner situation, class act!
