Gold D. Roger is probably the most important character in OP, but he has the fewest lines in the story. (And I need help translating following quote)
This quote is from Vol. 12 on very first page, when Dragon Appears:
Word-to-word translation goes:
“Will that passes on, happing of the era, and people’s dream. These can not be stopped…as long as people look for the answer to the freedom.”
AND if we try to make this into a sentence, the best I can come up with is:
“Dreams will pass on, as time will elapse…. People will be looking for freedom…and the answer”
But there is a big problem with my later translation, since three components of the quote represents the next three events in the OP
受け継がれゆく意志(will that passes on)
Drum Island and how Dr. Hiruruku’s idea of “cherry blossom in Snow Island” passed on to Dr. kureha, to people in the Drum Island, and to Choppa
時代のうねり(happing of the era)
Arabasta and how people fought against the Arabasta kingdom for the rain
Skypiea and how people dreamed about the Golden City, Shandora.
If you consider this fact, my translation does not work out at all. I think this is the one of the most powerful quotes of Gol D. Roger. Can any of you come up with a better English line?
