Does anyone remember back when Usopp would proclaim embellished stories of his bravery, telling people (or himself) that he said these kind of things? Things like “Go on, I’ve got your back. You don’t even have to notice.” It was fake then, more like what he wanted to feel than how he actually felt, but now… now look at him. It’s so nice to see that now he can say it and mean it from his heart.
