Simple but deep. For those that don't know, this was based on a scene from One Piece where Luffy meets Marshall D. Teach. Luffy is roughed up from a bar fight. Teach aka Blackbeard gives his speech about how dreams will never end no matter what. I found it inspirational because dreams give people hope and meaning in life. The artwork here is really good, for it looks like a high definition redesign of the artwork in the actual anime. Solid shadows have been used to make the characters look not too flat. It has been said that Blackbeard is the main antagonist in One Piece for he has the same goal as the main protagonist Luffy. This piece has a deeper meaning because these two have the same goal and are both very strong, but their choices and actions are very different. Luffy has gone up against the entire world government to save one of his crew mates, but Teach was willing to kill one of his crew mates in order to obtain power for his ambition. This art piece also shows that the two opposing characters having some kind of mutual respect for one another. I'm a huge fan of One Piece and I find this art piece and the quote very inspirational.
Honestly, this is one of the things I like most about One Piece. Good guy or bad guy, it doesn't matter. Both have inspirational and motivational lines that ring true. Aside from this one, I like Doflamingo's line about the definition of justice during Marineford.
he hunts our hero, captures his brother, causing his death, then kills white beard, then captures Jewelry Bonney, and hands her over to the marines not before giving her whole crew a good round of ass kicking, has been show to act cowardly, and deceitful, but despite all that, there is one thing we can say about this man, this man here Marshall D. Teach has given us one of the most motivational lines to have ever cross the universe of Onepiece, not only that but his ambition and attitude makes him if not the very incarnation of what a pirate must be, if the straw hat crew is a peacekeeper type, Black beard is the classical pirate destroying kingdoms (drum kingdom), hunting other pirates, and maybe even pillaging, but while Luffy may seek the ultimate freedom, Teach is definitivelly after that power that will grant him the possibility to shape whatever he wants to his will, an strategic mind capable of extreme patience, and objective crew recruitment, he is now the very first being known to have 2 devil fruit powers, in resume, you can't deny this bastard awesomeness.
Just before we found out that he was an asshole. I mean, seriously. Teach was cool when we first meet him, and then he goes after Luffy, then Ace, becomes a Warlord, helps Luffy somewhat, then kills Whitebeard. This man is ambition!
you know despite all the horrible things Teach has done like turning Ace over to the Navy and killing Whitebeard I'll bet Luffy still can't help but hold onto a small amount of respect for him since they have similar ideals on pirates' dreams
