Mr 2./Bon Clay
Jaguar D. Saul
I nominate Bell-mère's Death from the Arlong Arc as she was giving her life for her daughters.
I vote for Ace's.
Going with Ace's death as it meant more to the main character's growth than the manga as a whole. Plus the whole dispute between him and Akainu building up to his magma fisting and his talk to Luffy before his light faded was amazing. I remember crying as I read this the first time. Very emotional scene indeed.
Whitebeard's Death for sure. He died like the famous warrior monk Benkei, and that's just beyond reproach.
IF none of his grisly attitude, conviction or power didn't qualify it.. his death made the man more than a legend..
Merry Death was certainly the one which touched me the most. Whitebeard one was badass but that's all. Well that's hundredth chapter of Merry against a few chapters of Whitebeard, I guess it can't be compared from a reader point of view
I am nominating Dr Hilluk's death. His dying speech was really good and really this award could do with more variety considering Oda's death scenes are quite good.(Norland, Tom, the rumbar pirates, all these still have not been nominated yet)
Jaguar D. Saul. He died to save Robin and give her the hope to carry on.
WB's death,because it's the only important death aside from Ace's ,which was very bad. WB dies standing,and it was very good for that!
Roger´s death/execution. Everyone, especially the WG thought that Roger´s execution would scare all pirates around the world but that guy started a whole era with just a few words.
Truly, Jaguar's and Bon's made me the most sad, though we can not be sure about Bon-chan, still, it was something that was extremely emotional, it even made Buggy cry! Though I would go with Marry Go here, it was a bonding moment, the death had a lot of meaning attached to it and a death of an "object" was portrayed so strong due to it's SPIRIT!
