thesurrealcarapace asked: This is going on a stretch, but something I'm also hoping for. What do you think if Basil, Apoo, Kid, Law, and Luffy team up? Also I don't want it to happen, but how many of the Eleven Supernovas, do you think will die before the end of OP?
Depends on what you mean by team up. I think it’s possible that they form an alliance or something like that, but I don’t think they’ll ever have a close-knit operation against a common enemy as with Law and the Straw Hats. 5 crews just seems excessive. One Piece rarely kills off people, and although it’s starting to do so more frequently, I don’t think any of the Supernovas will die. I’m starting to think that a couple of them have become pretty irrelevant and may not even make a significant re-appearance. People like Barto of the new generation of rookies are stealing the spotlight it seems, and as it is now, Barto is much more entertaining and worthy of more appearances than someone like Capone, I’d say.
ivadori asked: Hi. I actually do feel bad for Bellamy in recent events in the chapters. When he was first introduced, he was an arrogant asshole(sorry for swearing). When he met Luffy again, Bellamy went to Skypia and lost his crew along the way and hold no grudge againist him. Soon enough, it went downhill for Bellamy. Is it possible, that once the current arc end, that Bellamy and Luffy can be allies?
I think they’ll definitely be friends, not sure what you mean by allies.
angerona asked: While not confirmed, it is quite obvious that Jimbe will join eventually, what do you think about Bonney as Straw Hat? She has no crew anymore and hates Blackbeard and Akainu almost as much as Luffy, she's female and her personality is quite different from the rest.
That would be interesting. Bonney is a pretty big wild card at this point. Her “saving” Zoro back at Sabaody seemed like a spark to a bigger interaction with the Straw Hats yet to come. Her background suggests that she has past affiliations with the World Government/was a noble (coincidentally enough, the real life pirate that she is named after, Anne Bonney, was a noblewoman who became a pirate), so it’s almost as if around now is the perfect time for her to make an entrance if her journey is going to converge with the Straw Hats’ at all. If I remember correctly, there was in fact a sequence of her finding out about Doffy’s resignation from the Shichibukai. And last of course is the shared motive she has against Blackbeard and Akainu that you mentioned. In terms of her eligibility as crew member, I certainly think she’s varied enough. Something tells me that she still has a crew of her own in some form though.
Anonymous asked: Okay, so what do you think Bartolomeo's crew will do after the Dressrosa arc is over? Do you think they'll sail their own way, but Bartolomeo will give Luffy's crew a den den mushi so that they can call him if they ever need him? Or do you think he'll follow along with Luffy's crew in his own ship? I can't rationalize Bartolomeo leaving Luffy's group after the arc's over, he's such a big fanboy, him leaving the group to sail on his own adventures seems out of character for him.
While I wouldn’t mind seeing him a part of the crew, I’m thinking that they will ultimately part ways. What I can imagine is them having a post-arc party and Barto finally getting to kick it with Luffy and then Luffy just casually telling him to go live his own life or whatever. But since the crew has to high-tail it to Zoa right after the whole current fiasco with Doffy is dealt with, maybe Barto will be around for another arc. If Luffy is following Whitebeard’s suit and claiming territories, the tenuous alliance between the Heart Pirates and the Straw Hat Pirates may just become a real thing amongst many crews. It doesn’t seem like Law has a legitimate intention to become Pirate King, so I can see them maintaining a valid relationship wherein they won’t end up fighting for the title (though a brawl between them would be epic) - the guy saved Luffy’s life after all; add in the events of Punk Hazard and there’s definitely a rapport there. And Barto joining that alliance seems A-OK too.
