Arria’s Top 10 Most Gut-Wrenching Scenes in ONE PIECE (Pre-Timeskip)

This list proves to be a difficult piece for me to write, as I can’t stop crying. (ノД`)・゜・。 Putting together the list is easy enough. The hard part is remembering each scene. My chest started to tighten, my throat felt constricted, and the tears started welling. By the time I reached number 1 on my list, I was sobbing like crazy. 。゚(゚ノД`゚)゚。
So here are my top 10 most gut-wrenching scenes in ONE PIECE before the timeskip:

10. Sabo’s “Death”
The flashback of the 3 sworn brothers (Luffy, Ace & Sabo) is one of the most heart-warming arcs in ONE PIECE. You can really feel the strong bond between the 3 boys. So when Sabo “dies” because a fucking tenryuubito shoots him (damned bastard), I just yelled “No!” at the top of my lungs and started cursing the air blue for the tenryuubito to die.  My  heart broke when young Ace started sobbing at the news of his brother’s death.  (╯︵╰,)
I’m so glad that he’s not really dead.

About 2 months ago, I discovered this amazing Japanese commercial via Facebook about the new Subaru Forester car inspired by Isayama Hajime-sensei‘s highly popular Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin / 進撃の巨人) manga and anime series.  If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend that you do right now.

This is the 10th episode of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史) and Ono Daisuke’s (小野大輔) radio show Dear Girl ~Stories.  This is yet another hilarious episode, which I greatly enjoyed.  Right at the beginning, OnoD cracked me up when he announced that Kamiya-san’s new nickname has been decided to be “Sexy”.  If you’ll remember from the previous episode, they accepted suggestions from their listeners for Kamiya-san’s new nickname.  One of them is “Sexy.”  Here is a rough translation of their conversation:

Ono: Sexy. . .OnoD. . .
Kamiya: It’s like you’re announcing that you’re sexy. I’m not in it at all.
Ono: Is that so? Sexy OnoD.

Next up is Futsuu Story corner where they read letters from their listeners.  Here is a rough translation of one of the letters.

Tony Tony Chopper is one of my favourite characters from the awesome mega-hit anime ONE PIECE.  He is easily the cutest and the most adorable among the characters.
