Act Two: Love, War, and Revolution
“If women went crazy and stepped into the battlefield, no country could beat them.” – Lily Franky
The stereotype of treating women as weak has been going out of fashion, but woman are strong. They may not be as brave, or have as much strength. Even so, mothers are strong. And maybe they know the thoughts of the ocean and boats. Maybe not, but that’s fine too.
Many men don’t like blood. Maybe it’s because they don’t see it every month? As yin and yang distinguishes the sexes, men who die at sea float with their backs up, whereas women float with their bellies up. So even the sea cares what sex you are? So I say, but sex doesn’t really matter. What’s important is, believing you can give the one you love that all-encompassing mother-like affection!
Speaking of which, I’ve received many comments on the braided narrating girl looking like a boy. (Ever since I put out the originating piece “Umi Yukaba”) Why is that? Is it because she looks heroic? Or is it because war is for men?
Maybe that’s why all the characters have flat chests? (It’s not.) (That’s just my preference.)
LOVE is OPPAI…
