With the Marines hot on the Straw Hat Pirates and allies heels, the dwarves have lent their aid to their saviors and have begun to disrupt the organisation of the Marines through stealing their weaponry, sealing the movements of their ships and even immobilizing the Marine soldiers. Even Mansherry is unknowingly fatiguing the soldiers through her Kenpopo donations. Unfortunately for the dwarves efforts, there isn’t much they can do against Admiral Isshou, who single-handedly intends to crush all the pirates with one massive attack. Tired of running, Luffy has opted to challenge Isshou directly because that is what a true Pirate King would do.
The heart is but a fragile existence; grand in its capacity to feel but vulnerable in its ability to comprehend the pain overwhelming it. Subject to the corroding touch of the world’s madness, the heart reacts in a manner unique to each bearer. Such is the case with the story between two brothers and their contrasting interpretations of the madness they were victims of as young boys. One became consumed by it and chose to embrace it; the other traumatized by it, chose to rise above it. In the end, their choices and the life of a young boy led them to opposing each other.
What a mellow feeling I have overwhelming me seeing Rosinante pull Law out from the hell he was cast into and knowing that Rosinante will make the ultimate sacrifice to save Law. Forsaking his own life and future, Rosinante put every ounce of his will into making sure Law was able to cure himself of the Amber Lead poison in his body and be able to escape the birdcage Doflamingo entrapped the people on Minion inside. It is an almost numbing feeling, I want to be sad that Rosinante’s life is about to end, but the heart-warming sacrifice he is making to save a boy traumatized by consuming suffering is just too moving to not admire and want to smile, especially after that last panel. That final smile of Rosinate’s definitely burned itself into Law’s memory just as it did for the reader.
The Ope Ope no Mi, the light of salvation at the end of the darkness gripping the very life of a young boy victim to the greed of minds unconcerned for any interest outside their own. A legendary Devil Fruit capable of performing “miracles” and the only solution available to Law for curing his Amber Lead Sickness. Rosinante, aware of the state Law is in and the lack of time available to him, resolves to go against both the Donquixote Pirates and the Marines, in order to secure the Ope Ope no Mi and save Law.
What an unbelievably lovable character Rosinante is, even though Doflamingo and he suffered through the same childhood, the way they both developed were completely different. Rosinante was able to rise above his rage and move on from the pain inflicted on him by those wanting revenge on the Tenryuubito, Doflamingo on the hand, became consumed by his rage and embraced the madness he saw in humans when they made him suffer, ultimately vowing to return the suffering back onto them. Seeing Rosinante try so hard to save Law, I can’t help but fall in love with his character. Knowing that Doflamingo eventually takes out Rosinante is inducing immense sadness in my heart, what a tragic chapter it will be when Doflamingo kills his own brother.
