I'm not really sure if Sabo's ok or not. A point blank blast from a cannon seems like it'd be pretty hard to survive. Hopefully he's alright, but flashbacks do make it easier to use a character to their utmost ability and then take them out.
Ace was already starting to care about Luffy as his own brother, but now knowing that Sabo's last wish was for him to take of "Crybaby Luffy" just makes his death more meaningful and let's Ace fully mature into the strong, reliable, big brother we all know he became to the bitter end.
That's why it makes sense for Luffy to have this flashback now, he knows what it's like to lose a brother, and him recently losing Ace is bringing up these saddening moments of when they lost Sabo. Luffy is on his own now. Poor guy shouldn't have to lose his brothers.
It's up to him now to change the world for the better and shake the foundations of cruelty just as Roger did.
^ Yeah body with splat face lol
Quite good this week.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
“Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character”

The important part of this chapter was when Ace said he couldn't run because Luffy was behind him. That's why he took that blow from Akainu. The Tenryuubito need to get their asses kicked worse than the job that Luffy and Usopp did on them. This arc did get better at the end but if Sado is alive I wonder why he didn't try to meet up with Ace or Luffy.
i think sabo's alive....for now. Ace goes to try to kill the tenryuubito he thinks kills sabo and sabo steps in like for what ace did for luffy and dies and sabo's dying words are how he regretted not being able to live his dream. Then the flashback goes forward a couple months and we see ace with the sabo's symbol on his arm setting sail making the promise to luffy that they're going to live their lives with no regrets and we finally go back to present time in 2 chapters....with luffy hopefully stop crying by now. i like this flashback but i want to story to start moving on...

There's a saying in the OP forums which goes like this..."If a new unidentified character is wearing a hat, he must be Sabo!"...Yeah, take that Obitio/Tobi/Madara theorists!
LOVED to hear more about roger!
