Once again the monstrosity of hatred becomes the perspective which people become blinded by. As it was with Ace, the world represented by the World Government made the source of his blood, his father, the villain and the object towards which to direct all hatred and blame towards. Now here with Rebecca, Doflamingo has made the source of her blood, the Riku family blood, the object of hatred and negativity. To think such a turn of events was possible, to make Ace’s execution and the context in which it took place in so relevant this arc. Really, what a magnificent chapter.
