"Share the World!" by TVXQ
All women seem to carry a snake with them. Everything is done by women on this island and they are all incredibly powerful. A culture where beauty is not about looks. It's about strength.
Luffy is confused and wonder how he got there. he remembers the battle with Bartholomew Kuma, and how the crew were cast all over the world.
Luffy realizes he's not wearing his straw hat. He notices it on the head of Sweatpea. he reaches out and grabs it off her head to reclaim it. The women are shocked to see his arm stretch out.
Nerine asks Luffy for his name and he gives it, and only now realizes he's naked.
Margaret has a question for Luffy about the sack between his legs. Luffy says that's where his "family jewels" are kept. They all misunderstand and think they are literal jewels. They ask if Luffy can take them out to see them.
Margaret gives Luffy some clothes that she put together for him. He puts them on and they are covered in lace and flower prints. Luffy is overcome with grief that they mistake for pleasure. He loses his temper that he's a boy.
Suddenly, all the amazons have moved back at his rage and drawn weapons aimed at him. Their snakes are now bows for arrows. They believe this is Luffy's true nature.
Sweatpea doesn't like the idea of killing Luffy since he hasn't caused any harm.
Luffy didn't realize they saved his life earlier. He wants to know what happened. Belladonna explains how Margaret and others rescued Luffy from the forest. Luffy thanks her and apologizes for shouting..
Now, Aphelandra doesn't want to kill Luffy. Kikyo shouts her down that men aren't allowed on the island. Thier island empress is returning and wouldn't be happy to find out a man was on the island. If they kill him now. They can cover the whole issue up.
They open fire and the arrows cause an explosion. Luffy is barely able to escape through the roof. he's now running along the roof tops. Even Luffy notices something odd about those arrows.
Aphelandra cuts Luffy off. She apologizes for saving him and knocks him down to the road, but he bounces away.
Word gets out about Luffy's escape. The whole village is after him. It's not long until Luffy is surrounded. He evades their attacks and remembers he needs the Vivre Card from his old clothes. Luffy leaps into the air to find Margaret in the crowd.
He finds her and stretches to grab her. Holding her tight he makes a run for it out of the village and off the humongous cliff. Margaret panics, but Luffy saves them with his Gum-Gum Balloon.
After a bit, Luffy asks if she's alright. Margaret is still scared and draws a knife of him. Luffy asks about the paper from his other pants. She's been keeping it in her top since there was a name written on it.
Luffy grabs her by the hand. He's so happy he wont let her go as he thanks her. He then shows her how a Vivre Card works.
Luffy tells Margaret how a lot has happened and how he needs to get back to his friends. Luffy asks if there is anything he can do for her, and she asks to see his "family jewels".
Luffy explains he's a pirate, and Margaret says that Amazon Lily's empress is also a pirate. He asks if they are strong. She tells him that only the strangest warriors can join the Kuja Pirates.
the empress' name is Boa Hancock.
Off the shores of Amazon Lily, the Kuja Pirates' ship approaches a Marine warship docked well from the island. An alter on Amazon Lily goes out that Boa Hancock has returned.
Kikyo orders warriors into the jungle to kill Luffy before the empress returns.
