Polnareff, I can’t believe you don’t shut up!
Oda once talked (in Wanted!) about how he enjoyed his time spent playing soccer in middle school and integrating that in his pirate manga. Do you think that like Ryuma, appearing for the first time in another oneshot of his but ending up being canon in the One Piece world as well, that Oda's saying he wants the strawhats to be a pirate crew like a soccer team: 11 members with one goalkeeper, forwards (probably Zoro, Sanji, Luffy), defenders (Nami?) and midfielders?
It’s not such a bad theory. I’m not opposed to more Straw Hats, but at the same time I’m fine with 9 with some honorary Straw Hats too.
my hope is that Roundabout will continue to be JoJo's ending theme and the series will reach part 8 so that someone can piece together (snicker) all the ending vids and sync them to the full song perfectly. do you share this dream of mine?
I’ll drink to that.
Oda kinda acknowledged that the Strawhat Pirates can be segregated into the Monster, Weak and Old Trios. however, I classify them in different trios, Martial Artists (Luffy, Sanji, Robin), Weapon Wielders (Zoro, Nami, Usopp) and the Not-So-Humans (Chopper, Franky, Brook). do you think Oda intended this or it's just pure coincidence? (side note: Jimbei needs to wield Arlong's Kiribachi so he can fit all 3 categories)
You’re right, it is a mystery.
As a fellow JoJo fan, do you think we'll also someday get an english version of the JoJoveller that came out in Japan today (Japan gets all the cool stuff)
Well Japan gets the stuff because they made the stuff. Lousy Japanese creating a series then celebrating it…… dkgkdhgd.
It’s so awesome to see Jojo on the rise outside of Japan. Crunchyroll getting the simulcast to the series is a step in the right direction, and I sure as hell never thought we’d see an English release of All Star Battle.
I have my doubts about Jojoveller, but who knows. If the manga sees a resurgence over in the west, keep your fingers crossed.

I made this for Zach Logan of the One Piece Podcast’s birthday! He wanted a One Piece style colorspread with all the podcast guys. I think I went a little overboard, haha.
Sai’s got a lot of talent.
That’s me on the right side of the couch. Take a good look at all the little Easter Eggs in this spread based on a lot of One Piece Podcast gags.
