Awww... :(

I read somewhere, though, Oda stated in one of his Q&A sections that the next nakama is going to be someone we've already met who was previously an enemy.

So...

Perona
Buggy
Crocodile
Mr. 3
Bon Clay (assuming he's alive.  There were no flashbacks)
Mihawk
Kuma
Honestly tons of others but those are the ones who come to mind.


Not including Boa and Jimbei (though he was an enemy only in that he's a former Shichibukai) because I'm pretty sure I'd read this before they were really introduced. 

Assuming that statement still holds true, who do you see?

...Fuck.  If he really said that, then Perona is a very reasonable guess.  I doubt it's Buggy, since his crew is now huge and he's somehow a mini-legend.  He'll be a rival through to the end.  I'm pulling for Hancock.

Hancock would not work as the tenth Straw Hat pirate because of her own character.  She is head over heels for Luffy and cannot act as a foil to Luffy's madness like the other female characters.  Also, she has duties to protect her island now thanks to her actions in the war against Whitebeard, just like Jimbei.  There is nothing denying that she will be a great ally in the future, but a Straw Hat she is not.

I think Perona would work well as a Straw Hat to mess with Zoro, but there is still some irrational hope that Mr. 2 is alive and well enough to be a Straw Hat.  Sadly, we do not need two former Baroque Works agents for Luffy's crew.

Room...Shambles!

I found a forum thread on AnimeSuki talking about the interview and Oda saying the next nakama would be a former enemy, but I can't actually find the interview itself.  Therefore it's entirely possible this is somebody talking out their ass.

I'd personally have to reject Boa for the same reasons as Malex.  That and Oda has said there will be no romance between the members of the crew.  Can't keep that if Boa joins the group.

Though one thing I did come across while looking for the interview is someone pointing a scene way back when the crew was in Loguetown before entering the Line.  Nami is trying on outfits in one of the boutiques.  One she tries on looks like the outfit Robin wore when introduced, the other is the same design as Boa's dress.

Well, Oda did have the basic idea of Boa Hancock around that time.  In 1999, he was asked to reveal some characters the Straw Hats will meet on the Grand Line.  He replied with a cover showing the backs of some characters with the image to the right.  Some changes were made, but Oda has stated in an interview that it is Hancock

Here's the page in question.  What kinda pokes a hole in their argument for me is that Nami's dress is the same style as Boa's redesign, not his original concept.

Also it's a pretty standard Chinese dress style. 

But fanboyisms aside it's really a question of who would mesh best with the crew.

He could toss it frisbee-like to Law and say, "Let him know I'm still waiting for him to return this to me." 

Or Shanks is bedside when he finally wakes up and thanks him for keeping it safe.

I prefer the latter, Tom.  Good thing Shanks got the hat because I was little worried with the sand twisters, Buddha blasts, black holes, and molten JUSTICE flying around.  Another good thing to note is Coby standing up to Akainu's JUSTICE.  Marines are protectors of justice, not murderers.  I guess Doflamingo is enjoying all of this right now.

Oh shank, it's Shits!  We should stop fighting right now. 

And that's how the Great Age of Pirates ended...wait, what?

Seriously, a good chapter, but it felt a little weird to end the war that way.  The weirdest part is this way is the most logical way to end the fighting.  Whitebeard and Ace are dead and so are a bunch of marines and pirates.  Marineford is in shambles and Blackbeard needs time adjusting to his earthquake powers.  Adding Shanks to the situation would make people want run away, but it felt sudden.  Maybe I just wanted Lucky Roux to shoot a random marine in the head while scarfing his ham on a bone.

So there we go.  Luffy is safe.  Boa gets to play nurse.  The World Leaders are dicks.  Sengoku doesn't like it. 

Does this mean we finally get nakama back next week? :D  Or is Oda going to show us what he just said will happen and there will be drama along the way?

Probably not immediately. Luffy still has to recuperate, come to terms with Ace's death, etc.

And I kinda doubt that Oda would just bring the Strawhats back all at once. Sanji's probably going to be the first to reappear if they really are going to Kamabakka kingdom...
