Last few posts;
He was scared of Fuji's attack. The only reason he even dared to kick him was because he knew Fuji wouldn't touch him.
Aokiji used a different attack against DD than he used against WB. Also most likely weaker than against Jozu, since against Jozu he touched him, and against DD he didn't. Fact is, DD was frozen for long enough for his underlings to cry for him. You know what that time could've been used for? Aokiji kicking him in the chest and breaking him apart.
The question should be: 'how the fuck did I miss such vital pieces of information?'
1.He wasn't scared of Fuji's attack he was caught off guard that he attacked him at all
2. He already got attacked by Fuji earlier so he definitely didn't think his Shichibukai status would keep him from being attacked by Fuji. He was making Fuji choose his stance right than and there forcing him to either fight him or back off and hope he gets defeated.
4. He instigated a former Admiral to attack him who has no obligation to hold back on him due to any duty.
3. Aokiji was on the offensive trying to stop DD's offense on Smoker. A chain of actions providing DD no defense towards Aokiji's attack, this portrayal doesn't show that Aokiji is above DD in the slightest. Unless Aokiji is Squardo level
Okay, so? Granted, the only reason why Goku took Chichi's offer up was because he misunderstood what marriage is but that doesn't change that however misguided, it was invariably linked with his stomach. Simply because Luffy understands what conventional marriage is doesn't mean that if they were to get married, it would be because of conventional reasons. Like I mentioned before, he's (or rather Oda's) already subverted the selfless nature of one concept -- what's stopping him doing so again?
You're assuming that her perception of him would be damaged if he didn't demonstrate having romantic feelings for her, which I sincerely doubt – simply being married to him could suffice to her. We have to look at this from Hancock's point of view, considering how we – or anyone else – would feel in that position isn't the focus . As for how he would develop feelings for her with “nothing to offer him”, I'm not sure to be honest and that's ultimately why I'm not a big shipper of this pairing...but if he had to end up with someone, I can only imagine it to be Hancock.
Of course not, but that's because murdering his nakama and abandoning piracy would directly contradict who he is as a character and everything he's done up till now. Oda has time and again demonstrated that Luffy would rather give up his own life than commit these acts, but can you truly say the same of going into marriage with a selfish intention initially. Even in similar scenarios, what tends to be the case is that other people usually gain more from his selfish acts than he does – he went to great lengths to help each SH because he stubbornly decided that they would be a part of his crew; thanks to his persistence, he gave them the opportunity to eventually realise their dream. In the long run, Hancock would have more to gain from marrying him than he would, given how highly she values it – having his children would probably be the icing on the grand cake. As for your question, personally I would but what I want and what will realistically happen are two separate things; how probable is it really for him to develop romantic feelings prior to marrying any of the OP girls?
Why do you think marriage would completely reshape his life? You make it seem like he would be forced to stay in one place and give up a considerable amount; were Yasopp and Roger forced to abandon the “call of the pirate flag” because of these marital responsibilities? In all likelihood, Luffy would probably continue to sail the seas and bask in absolute freedom – a level that only the Pirate King can enjoy. That was the whole reason behind the dream; he wasn't motivated by fame or fortune but rather the freedom that came with the status. Finally achieving that dream doesn't put an end to his journey, but a start to a new one however cliché that sounds. Even if Luffy were to marry Hancock, it wouldn't necessarily bind him and their relationship wouldn't necessarily have to be built on constant contact. Whose to say whether Hancock wouldn't be perfectly content?
Marriage might be a lifelong commitment, but Luffy has made huge commitments in the past with far less difficulty than the average person. It's not like I'm saying that Hancock would offer him one piece of meat, considering she's already done more than that and was flat out rejected. However, what if she were to give him a mountain of meat? Would he turn it down when it's right in front of him? This is not to say that it would be his only reason for doing it – it could also be a combination of valuing her, feeling indebted and a spur of the moment. I personally feel like food (especially meat) would be a strong part of the equation though, in light of how much he values it.
The Mihawk is not Yonkrial debate as reached forth it's hands into the territory of amazon lilly's pirate princess, no where is safe lol
it does not seem like mihawk has any interest in being a pirate these days tho, he just sits in his castle drinking tea...
