I'm just pointing how retarded his reasoning was. A oversimplification of the scene coupled with his dismissal of it as if it was an implausibility.
Oversimplification? You are glorifying an event that had little to no value from a reader's point of view (unless the reader is a huge man child who is a sucker for cheesy friendship scenes). It was a waste of panels and manga space. Why? Because it didn't deliver the point.
Let me explain it to you - if a writer has a point which he wants the reader to see, there is a right and a wrong way to do it. In this case, if the theme was friendship, it did deliver. A cheesy thing of a theme that keeps plaguing many manga. If the theme was Zoro's sacrifice, it failed miserably. If the theme was how fucking tough this Zoro guy is, it delivered, but that also makes the writing retarded.
Edit : I am clearly dismissing all the elements of play? I actually smiled irl. I mean, seriously, how can't these people realize such an awesome writing in a kid's manga, they must be really stupid!! I mean, IT'S A FUCKING SENSATION to read that part. Made me cry myself to sleep.
Go play with your lego bricks now.
