Kinemon (The Samurai)
thanks for making the point for me marco, he is not sure and B4 people were all like he only said 10 witch mean the door is now open for more than ten. plus NO 13-15 is not a huge crew in the main story line. white beards crew was huge and each of his allies hand many men under there control as well. and i have went back and looked through all the times we have seen shanks with his crew and he has about over 20 at least. don.k and many men under his control. moria had a zombie army, and boa has way more than 15 crew members. 13-15 would be a relatively small crew in the one piece world.

Alright Cross I'll dumb it down for you. We are reading the story of how Monkey D. Luffy rises in Power, along with the entertaining main cast his crew(comparing them to side characters is a irrelevant point). Oda has already sacrificed romance within the crew because he sought it as dragging the story. He has already said he is trying to bring this story to a closing, if you haven't noticed it from his rushed war arc. It takes great talent and hard work to show cast all 9 SH's in every chapter, keeping them each shining as they continue to journey towards Raftel. Along with the facts Aristart told you, the reason he wont be getting anymore then 11 total tops (meaning your 13-15) it's not because I do not like it, its because I doubt he would want to do it. That's 13-15 characters he has to show cast nearly every chapter, its a bit harder in One Piece compared to other stories since they aren't always in the same place. So yes expecting more than 2 more joining is far fetched and I would even say hopeless.
i understood this and i see you point Fm, and you have one you do and its a VERY GOOD POINT. but in my spair time when i unwind i think about stuff random stuff and this in one of those said things. and i thought through this in depth, and as you said 11 would make sense. i am not oblivious of this. but the thing is more not many more but 2-3 more is doable in many ways. in no way does this prove that there will be more than 11, i can not do that. but all i am trying to say is that it is not impossible. so lets call a spade a spade and wait and see we will find out at some point.
Now personally, I think we only need two crew members; Luffy and Zoro. The rest just hold back the awesomeness that those two produce. Nami. Sanji, Usopp, Chopper, Robin, Franky, Brook are all just filler for those two. Adding 4 to 6 more members would just add more filler for those two. So, Fuck you for not wanting absolute awesome.
I Love You!
sanji is pretty awesome to you know, especially after that last chapter
