This post is blessed i swear people forget that if anyone will play a role similar to the one garp had it will be smoker ,i mean do you guys imagine roger saving a wimp garp from a fat lady and telling him to follow his dreams ?? because that's what happened with luffy and coby Xd.
Garp possibly being in a vacation at the time??arlong maybe a lot of things but he certainly ain't stupid.He experienced first hand kizaru as a vice admiral and what he did to him imagine garp now he would low diff his whole crew Xd
