I know that there are a lot of people out there who want Hancock to join the Straw Hats. And she just might. But I'm just going to name a few reasons why she shouldn't...

I like the Crew the way that it is right now, and I know that there are a lot of people who agree with me. So, if anybody is going to join, they had better be strong, funny and awesome. And though Hancock fulfils these requirements, I still don't think that she should join the Straw Hats.

Please, don't misunderstand. I absolutely LOVE her character! She is funny and strong and awesome, just like I said, but her joining would just cause far too many problems. And those problems, are going to be what this article is about. Again, I'm not trying to start a fan-war or anything. I'm just stating my opinion.

The first question that I would like to put out there is: If Hancock joins the Straw Hat's, what would happen to the Kuja Pirates??? Well, the answer is simple. They'd have two choices. They'd either have to disband or join Luffy's crew as well. And I, personally, don't want either.

I, as a girl, have always enjoyed the fact that there is an All Girl's Pirate Crew in the World of One Piece. And having them join the Straw Hat's, would just ruin that.

Also, if they were to join Luffy's crew, the crew would become rather large. And I've always enjoyed the IRONY of the Future Pirate King's crew being petite. Just a small group of misfits who really don't belong ANYWHERE. Except for there. And having the Kujas join would destroy that Irony. Plus, what would Sanji do, being surrounded by so many women???

Now, you might say "Well, why can't someone else just be their Captain." I'll tell you why. What exactly do you think the World Government would think of Boa Hancock, A Shichibukai, one of the 7 Warlords of the Sea, joining another Pirate crew??? And not just any crew, no... The crew of the son of the World's worst criminal. Who entered each of the World Government's top 3 facilities; of his own free will; caused havoc in each of them and escaped ALIVE. I don't think that the World Government is liking Luffy too much any more.

Boa Hancock's status as a Warlord is the only thing keeping Marine battle ships from coming and buster calling all over the Island of Women. Because to them, it's nothing but a whole island of pirates. Hancock's Warlord title is the only thing protecting the Kujas. However, if Hancock were to join the Straw Hats, then that Title would most likely be revoked.

Another problem that I would like to bring up is the fact that Hancock loves Luffy. I know that there are a lot of Fan-Fictions out there with stories about One Piece characters falling in love. However, the fact still remains that One Piece is not a Romance series and it never has been. In fact some people consider it a breath of fresh air; a relief; to get away from the whole love aspect of manga to a series purely about adventure. A man's Romance, as one might call it. And I, personally, think that too.

I once read a comment that said that they were tired of Naruto being in love with Sakura and Ichigo being in love with Rukia and that it's nice to read One Piece where you don't have any of that stuff. And it IS nice. It's nice to know that you don't have to worry about the characters falling in love with each other. There are no love triangles, no friendships torn apart by love none of that. However, that will change if Hancock joins the crew.

Her one and only priority will be to win over Luffy's heart. Again, One Piece is not a Romance. Fans can have their Fan-Fiction stories, but I don't want any of those things to really happen. Love isn't important in One Piece. Besides the odd pervert (ie. Sanji) it doesn't really matter at all. We don't need another Sanji on the crew. One completely love obsessed Straw Hat is enough.

Another problem is: What would happen to Sanji? He turned to stone by looking at Hancock through binocuars, and she wasn't even using her power. What would happen to Sanji if she were to join the crew? I'll leave that up to your imaginations.

So, to sum it up, I don't want Hancock to join the Straw Hats because it would just cause far too many problems. Thank you for reading this. Again, I am NOT trying to start a fan war. I'm just stating my opinian. So, please comment.
