The advent of One Piece's Wano arc has been intriguing since day one, and the story has only gone on to impress fans with each chapter since. From the anime to the manga, fans agree this new arc is one of the best to ever tackle Eiichiro Oda's seafaring tale. Those sentiments only doubled when Kaido's son was introduced at long last. Yamato's arrival has become one of the most-talked about elements of the arc, so it is no surprise to see One Piece fans cosplaying as the Yonko's rebellious kid.
Following Yamato's request to become a member of Luffy's crew following the final battle with Kaido, fans have been wondering what the series would look like if Yamato was actually made a part of the crew. Regardless of whether or not this actually happens, however, Yamato has already become a part of the crew in fans' hearts. One great argument for it happening, however, is this awesome cosplay from artist @linlinchups (who you can find more work from on Twitter and more social media here) that truly highlights how fun of a character Yamato is already.

Kaido's son has been a complicated addition to the Wano Country arc for a number of reasons as he revealed that he's not in line with his father's wishes. Instead worshipping Oden Kozuki's actions from 20 years ago, Yamato has been waiting for the moment to defeat his father and head out into the open seas just like his idol Oden did decades before. It's why he's instantly aligned with Luffy upon their initial meeting, but fans are wondering whether or not this would be advancing into him becoming an official part of the crew.
As the battle of Onigashima continues in the manga, Yamato will remain one of the most intriguing elements of the series until we find out whether or not he will be the long teased tenth member of Luffy's crew. But what do you think? Would you want to see Yamato join the Straw Hats in full? What role to do think he will play as the war for Wano comes to its climax?
