And then you realise Ace would let Luffy live on without someone overlooking/protecting him
Why are all nobles so ugly in OP? Only attractive ones we have seen is Sabo and Doflamingo, all others look like hideous swines.
Because Oda does not want children to see beauty in bad people. Ugly villains are easier to hate, note that they are not powerful (as fighters) but more like weak ugly people that tramples over normal Joes (Lucci was a handsome villain but he was a fighter).
Friendly reminder that Sabo didn't lift a finger to prevent aces death.
Would that have changed anything? No one knows.
Actually if someone took the direct job of stopping Kizaru, that would have been good.
Probably, Luffy alone helped out a lot so having Sabo + his allies would've done even more.
I want to hug shota Sabo.
Years of inbreeding to maintain the bloodlines.
Friendly reminder that bringing sabo back while foreshadowed was a cheap move.
