One Piece: Why Yamato SHOULD Join Luffy’s Crew?

Right now the manga of one piece is a bunch of shocks around Yamato, because after the battle against the Yonkou and the beast pirate crew, this peculiar character has not hidden his interests in joining the crew of Luffy and the Straw Hats.

Such is the importance of the above that the chapter 1051 of one piece He already gave rise to this possibility through a daring declaration of the son/daughter of Kaido, and that therefore, Luffy will have to answer in the next chapters of the sleeve.

His first appearance was in chapter 971 of the manga. one pieceY his relationship with the likes of Portgas D. Ace and the Shimotsuki clan has since hinted at his future with the Straw Hats. Yamato has been continually influenced by Oden’s travel journal and has expressed a strong desire to set sail with the Straw Hats and finally escape the confines of Wano. Furthermore, Yamato is known to have already clashed numerous times with Kaido in an attempt to freely travel outside Wano’s borders, and wanting to join the Straw Hats aligns perfectly with his character’s motivations.

If we go along the same line of “recruitment of nakamas” that the series has shown, Each prospect to Luffy’s crew has revealed their past, motivations, and dreams they could fulfill by joining Luffy’s crew. Yamato would have already fulfilled this aspect when he met Ace and after his relationship with both Kaido and the Beast Pirates crew.

On the other hand, Nami and Robin have remained as the only 2 women within the group of “you moo“, and although they have shared trips with other female characters such as Vivi or Carrot, the Straw Hats lineup has left this fact intact for a long time. Yamato adds a new approach to the group of female leads within the gang with a bubbly personality mixed with crushing strength, one that might even upset the concept of the “monster trio” (which has probably disappeared since Jimbe’s arrival on the crew).
