    When that happens he will feel like a kid.

    You're right. And Jimbei probably would have pulled the ship up the water fall himself. Cool but maybe not as adventurous if the wild coy aren't there.

    Since I'm assuming this thread can act as a reaction to both of the previous chapters, under the circumstances: Jimbeiiiiiiii That made my heart so, so happy when he finally showed up. So excited to have him on the team going forward.

    On a different note, I liked in this chapter how Law showed that he's learned from experience with the Straw Hats. "Listen, those dummies are gonna Leeroy Jenkins the shit out of everything no matter what, so let's just include that in the plan from now on."

    And Kid's reaction to Jimbei joining the Straw Hats kinda cracked me up, too. He's just like "C'mon, are you friggen for real right now?" Good luck continuing to try to pretend you're anywhere close to Luffy's equal, Kid. Though on a different note, that moment that showed that the other Kid Pirates have adopted Killer's laugh to show some solidarity with him was surprisingly sweet.
    On the Jinbe joining topic: For me, it's one of those things like... The main thing people go for when they don't want him to join is they don't like his personality. For me his personality's always been fine, I've never gone crazy over it, but I've never had any negative reactions to it. But still, I can understand people wanting another weird person on the crew. Even though Jinbe's weird in a lot of ways, starting with the fact that he's a whaleshark fishman who knows karate. But regardless of all that. One thing that can't be denied is this dude's contributions. He's directly saved Luffy out of certain death situations at least twice. And then has saved the crew out of many dire situations. So like his personality or not, his contributions to the crew can't be denied. And for me, the crew's such a circus sometimes that a complete straight man is a great idea. And Jinbe's shown he's REALLY good at planning, so I'll be happy to get some uber-serious plans in the future.

    On his joining moment (from other posters): He joined back in 2011. And again around 2016-2017. This was his "yay he's finally actually on the ship" moment. So all it's doing is cementing that he's on the crew, not meant to be some big moment.

    Hey hey hey, Kid could get new members for his crew after this too. if Law got Jean Bart, Don Sai got Baby 5, Cabagge got Suleiman, etc.

    Besides he's obviously going to realize he needs a bigger crew, even if the Fleet doesn't show up.

    Did you see that? As soon as that blue potato man joined the crew the forum went down for like a month. Longest it's ever been down.
    An ill omen; I told y'all him joining wouldn't be good. It's all downhill from here on out.

    The downtime was before the Joimbeitime, your argument is invalid.

    I go missing from the AP Forums for 10,000 years (or 2 years, I guess), to come back to a downed site. But thank god the site is back now! Now, with that out of the way... *takes deep breath*

    JINBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*takes another deep breath*EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEI!!! He's finally a permanent member of the crew with no more leaves of absences! Though, Luffy might have to gorilla glue him to the side of the Sunny just to be safe lol.

    Honestly, I was kinda expecting Jinbe to show up around this time, because him coming in just in time to save the day would be way too predictable for Oda, since we already knew he was coming. That's why I'm pretty confident Nekomamushi is gonna show up in the very near future as well. Whoever appears at the last minute to turn the tides of the battle, it's gonna be someone we don't know it's coming.

    I wonder if any of the tobi roppo will break the mold or if they are all going to be dinosaurs.

    Kid feels like he'll be a major showstealer.

    Kinda want to see what Oda's been setting up since Punk Hazard.

    I wonder how many people are still expecting Jimbe to die.

    Yeah, perfect timing to let us now about all of the main characters in the bad guys team, after all, they're all at Onigashima.

    Afterwards, I don't know if we're closing Act III with the bad guys realizing they are being attacked, or we're still far away from ending Act III

    How many members of big mom’s crew do you think will get there own Fights? Whether one on one or team fights

    I assume Perospero, oven, Daifuku, smoothie, Compote maybe Galette and mont D’or

    I'm still pretty conflicted with the whole Big Mom Pirates factor. but if anyone is down with Carrot/Shishilian vs Perospero, I'm down as well.

    Also, Law and Kidd aren't the type to be gently with women, so any of those two could take down Smoothie.

    His purpose is to get fodderized by Big Mom for destroying her ships, while his power will be stolen by Blackbeard shortly after. Getting his ass kicked by every single Yonkou is just karmic justice!

    Ok Chapter 976 was released the same week as Jimbei's birthday! His birthday is April 2nd! Almost 2 years exactly since he said he needed to stay behind! I think spoilers actually began to appear April 1st or 3rd, maybe 4th. When ever it was it seemed mighty suspicious. When half the world was home depressed Oda threw us a bone.

    His full body reveal was a little off though. Looked like the Anime C team drew it. Looked like he lost some weight. Luckily this chapter he was round, ripe and ready for the pickin'! Look at that face! Remember when people argued he didn't smile? To be fair at that time I didn't think he was joining either. I think back then the only time we saw him smile before Fishman Island was the Luffy pseudo crew color spread from Impel Down.
