In the latest chapter, Chapter 868 : KX Launcher, I've noticed a clue that may lead us to figuring out who might be the next member of the Straw Hat Pirates. *9th page of Chapter 868* As you can see, while Charlotte Linlin wreaks havoc, citizens are running away from her. That's when i noticed the man's shirt. It looks like none other than Carrot!! I don't know if it's a coincidence but the panel was from the 9th page of the chapter. Aside from Luffy, there are currently eight(8) members of Straw Hat Pirates. Is Carrot gonna be the 9th? Based from the facts, I think so. ***UPDATE*** I've searched about Jinbe's theory about him joining the Straw Hats. There is a "10" written at the back of the shirt of the kid. Foreshadowing that Jinbe might be the 10th member of the Straw Hat Pirates. But excluding Luffy, there are only eight members so I think Jinbe might join after Carrot does. Oda also said that there would be new nakamas consecutively. As to Carrot's role in the Straw Hats. It is stated that she is very good at drawing maps filling out the spot of Cartographer which they will definitely need on making their way to Raftel.
