Because I prefer that he'd die at the end means that it would be similar to Naruto in an "emo" way? Is that your argument? Is that it? Let's hope that you didn't think much when you made this response, because if you did, be ashamed of yourself. There are many reasons why a protagonist can die at the end of a story. Think a little. Don't let Naruto and One Piece be your only realm of experience. Here's a tip, watch the movie, The Departed. The protagonist dies at the end.
I am well aware of that there are a lot of ways for it to happen and many stories and movies and scuh it happens in… I just think it's a bad ending for One Piece... One Piece isn't about the drama where I see it... One Pece does have it of course but for Luffy to die at the end I would find very bad... and I appologies for being a little on edge in my post... family problems... I wasn't thinking straight, your right... what I simply meant was I don't want Luffy to die... EVER!!! (Not yelling in the end) :ninja:
