Beware, here be manga spoilers!
following from the fanart thread:
Spoiler, click to toggle visibiltyI really like Jinbe, and think Oda could do a lot with a permanent fishman on the crew, but...the core nine Straw Hats + the dozens of support characters introduced on every arc are getting unwieldy. When was the last last time half of the crew wasn't either irrelevant or completely gone for an entire arc? Fishman island? 'sides, what do Jinbe and Carrot do for the crew other than fighting?
Also, I hope Pedro doesn't miraculously survive that explosion. Oda has pulled that bullshit too many times and it feels cheap as fuck.
I've liked Whole Cake Island/the wedding arc so far, but I'm not sure how Oda can wrap it up. Is Big Mom really gonna let the crew go if she has cake? how can Luffy fight her when her underlings are too much for him?
