Okay, can we talk about how amazing this scene is for a second??
So, this is an image of Giorno and Mista during the White Album fight and holy crap I think I might cry. This is absolutely beautiful; The combination of the golden background as well as the sun rising with Giorno carrying Mista is literally eye candy. This scene really shows how much Giorno cares about him; He’s not just holding Mista for the sake of it– He’s holding Mista as if he wants to protect him. It shows how much these two have come together; Mista’s literally evaded death about three times and Giorno’s always been there to back him up. Their friendship is practically oozing out of these panels.
(Kind of like the blood from Mista’s multiple bullet wounds)
And we’re not even on the dialogue yet. In case Giorno’s text is too small to read, he says this:
“Mista… Your determination blazes brighter than the rising sun, illuminating our path with its brilliance… We’ll face the light and walk our path onward… Together!”
Holy moly… I’m almost in tears; This is fantastic. Giorno’s admiration for Mista is literally pure. Giorno, being the type of person to keep to himself with compliments, praising Mista like this and telling him how they’re going to continue their journey together is so heartwarming. The fact that he uses the sun’s symbolism makes this like, five times better. Comparing Mista’s determination to the blazing sun was perfect because of how accurate it is– Mista continues to stand up and fight multiple times even when he’s on the verge of death. These two, I just– I can’t–
Their friendship is literally the light of my life. Their interaction throughout Vento Aureo was a blessing and I’m so grateful. Am I overanalyzing fictional characters? Definitely. Am I using this panel as an excuse to ship them? Probably. Either way, this has to have been my favorite scene from Vento Aureo just because of how amazing the pictures and dialogue work together. All together, the White Album arc was beautiful.
