Okay, we got 9 people on Luffy's crew. He wants at least 11 (including him) before he becomes Pirate King. Here are the jobs he's filled so far:
Swordsman/First Mate/Bodyguard (technically)-Zoro
So that leaves helmsman (I think Jinbe fills this) and.... umm.... what other job do they need filling?
From the very start Luffy was focused on a good musician to join the crew....... And after Brook no one has officially joined the straw hat crew,,,,,,, that fleet is different story,,,,,, now that Luffy has gotten a fleet..... Whoever Luffy asked to join the crew.... Will probably be stuck as Luffys henchmen in his grand fleet.....
At the very least,,,,,, that's what I think.......
What if carrots join his crew?
I guess she could be the lookout or Cabin Girl
I found this so it can help.
A story-teller... wait. A ninja.
I think Carrot might join. She'll be able to fill the position of...... food(pun intended), I guess? But she might really. Even Law has a mink on his crew. I think Jinbe and teh Fishman Pirates might go into the Straw Hat Grand Fleet tho
@Yajnish first of all chill. You may have not meant it in a obtrusive way but it came off like that. Next time be a little more polite plz :)
Second Oda usually doesn't drop stuff like that and then completely ignore it. Your point is valid but Oda is a master of the foreshadow and I doubt that throughout the series he has created a character that would want him to break that. Especially when he can just throw them on the Grand Fleet.
I don't think that Jinbe will join the crew. He has an interesting skill - still, doesn't suit Straw Hat Crew profile. Every character has laughable attitudes - it's all about funny chars. Law was introduced as opposite to that, which introduced us to several clashes (Law didn't know how to respond to Luffy's behaviour).
I even think that the crew was quite strong before Franky and Brook have joined, even Robin has not that strong characteristic (even if crucial for the whole story). I will even say that Chopper should be developed more (huge potential) in opposite to adding another char.
Other occupations that I could accept are - Gardener (Oda considered that occupation at the beginning), Chronicler (to write down the story), Janitor (kinda funny).
For that positions I could consider: Bartolomeo as Chronicle (just imagine him going crazy all the time, taking pictures, enjoing every single world SH crew say).
Shame that Usopp wasn't developed to that role.
Gardener - partly taken by Nami (garden) and Sanji (cooking) or even Chopper (medicine), I could imagine a char as a mixture between Gardener and Janitor, who goes crazy every time his/her universe is disturbed by someone.
All in all - don't see, except Bartolomeo - any strong chars that could add anything valuable. I could even add that his power is ultimate, even more than Marshall D Teach has (ability to close everything within barrier and wait 'till oxygen will end). Bartholomew Kuma might be stronger though (ability to take you to the middle of the ocean)
@The ASL Pirates - Roger that... I'll take care next time...
BUT this guy misinterpretes info everytime (He corrected this one already)... so I'll ask him to please refer to a good source before posting... like i did... when i saw this post i went and re read the 1st manga where it was mentioned "at least 10"... I just want anyone posting a discussion to first do a bit more research , fine tune it a bit and provide us with an interesting and clean topic to discuss ... :)
What do you think?
