    Anyways...I don't think the next arc will be about Jinbei, but it should be soon. Didn't it say somewhere in OP (or an interveiw with Oda) that said the next arc will be Pirate Summit?

    -Thanks to ApocalypticArk for the new siggy~!

    1.) Panda shark (Remeber? it tried to eat Johnny (or Yosaku)

    2.) Elephant fish (Sanji bought it in rogue town)

    Any other ones?
    Those two weren't fish-men. That starfish was non-anthro, and the girl was a MERMAID. Oda has said before that they are a completely different species.
    yep that's why Viz is calling them Fishmen

    Whale's arn't fish so the kill whale one doesn't count really

    Gaint-Squid fish men

    Squids arent fish either... But haachi was an octopus so technically i dont think they have to be a fish to qualify.

    The word used in Japanese is gyonin 魚人, literally "Fish Person". I don't take it too literally, just imagine how the general population would have talked in the old days and the One Piece world. They probably aren't too concerned with the zoological categorization of sea-creatures.

    Bonus: The word "ningyo" 人魚 is the word associated with the popular concept of mermaids. It's merely the kanji rearranged, literally meaning "Person Fish". Just think of the first kanji as the base of the creature, so a "gyonin" fish-man is more fish with a humanoid body, while a "ningyo" is a person with fish parts, namely a tail.

    Yeah, but I said aquatic creature. I never said "fish" by itself.

    I understand that part. I am incredibly confused about how he came up wiht what he said about Hachi's friends as an observation.

    Well, if you keep up with the mini-stories on the covers of each chapter, there were several involving "Haachi's undersea adventures" or something to that effect. (Unless I completely misunderstood your confusion...)

    I'm starting to wonder what was confuzzling me myself @__@;;
    I think I was trying to figure out how a non-anthro got thrown in WITH the anthropomorphic fish-men, but I am misunderstanding my own logic now...

    Ok... I wasn't entirely sure what you were trying to make a point of in the first place, so I'll just have to let you sort this out on your lonesome
