Ace is dying he's saying his goodbyes and thanking people while gasping for breath. It's a purely emotional moment. No hidden messages that would cheapen the event.
Really, it's just like claiming that Going Merry had a secret message in the last panel on this page.
Also, it's not the same as with Blackbeard thing. There, Luffy and Zoro make some vague comment about Blackbeard. Here with Ace, we have a pause in words, that's all.
If he was giving a secret message to Luffy, Oda would make it so there's no doubt about it, like in Kuma and Rayleigh's case.
I also think that he would make it more obvious so that there woudln't be any discussion. If he told him a secret a will call that a "cheap backdoor". There would have been means to make it obvious.
Furthermore I think that something like that would kill the moment of Ace's dead.
I don't think there's any big secret. The only interesting thing is the "what, did you think I was dead?" comment. I think this just means he'll live on through Luffy though.
forgive my ignorance but i didnt kno ace said anything as he was dying....im still mad that he's dead tho. curse akainu
ace: luffy please take care of my son....
I thought the notion that ace told luffy a secret was already gone and by extension this thread served no purpose and should be sent to the blank century section. Ace did not tell luffy any secret, there is nothing to reveal.
I think this is going to hunt us for as long as the mistranslation/misinterpretation of what ace said about meeting luffy in a pirate summit lol.
Find my child in the new world luffy!
i only checked this thread wanting to know how it got 3 pages. along with many others i believe there was nothing secret what ace said to luffy at his end.
ace: sabo is alive.
This is pointless, we heard every bit of the conversation between ace and luffy, there is not secret here.There is not a single indication that ace actually said anything beyond what we read in the chapter. Sabo is alive though.
