Saddest Episode: 483

Saddest Anime Episode: Ace Dies

Well, Episode 483 is out! In my opinion, this is the saddest episode in the entire series (sad as in "tear-jerking", not as in "disappointing"). Since it was an anime episode, it was capable of more drama than its manga counterpart, Chapter 574. Now, don't get me wrong, the chapter was very shocking and twisting when I first read it, but the anime made it so much sadder than the manga ever could. Now tell me, what does everyone think about Episode 483, where Ace dies in Luffy's arms? I personally nearly cried (though I managed to hold back tears; after all, I don't really cry anymore).
