Alright, a few months ago I had made this statement in a thread (I forget where) and a lot of people thouht I was crazy for even mentioning it. They had good reason to, I mean the man killed Ace for crying out loud. If that didn't scream Luffy vs. Akainu, I don't know what else would. Well my argument back then was the fact that Oda will never have Luffy kill someone, it's just not how Luffy was designed. He's always been the one to settle all scores with "beating up" his opponents. But for what Akainu did to Ace, he deserves a lot more than just getting his ass kicked, and I had originally stated that I thought Garp was going to be the one to do it. That has all changed however, because now there is one man who not only shares in Luffy's hatred of Akainu for killing Ace, but also his goal that he shares with his fellow Nakama is to bring down the World Government, and everyone in it. If you haven't figured it out by now, the man I am refering to is Sabo. Lets face it, alot of people have been torn between who is going to be Luffy's final opponent, arguing whether or not its going to be Blackbeard, or Akainu. I always thought the final war was going to involve both Blackbeard and Akainu, and now that Sabo is alive, we have the perfect opponent for him when the war finally happens.
