Usopp asks about Franky
Usopp is enjoying some tea from the Minister of the Right, and Shirahoshi begins crying as Usopp mentions how they'll be leaving soon. She calls him "Nose"pp-sama. He apologizes for making her cry and tells her his name is "Usopp". He looks to Nami about where Franky went, and she tells him that he went back to the Thousand Sunny to learn how to pilot an ascending coated ship.
Just then, a soldier arrived with a report on the missing treasures that were stolen. Minister of the Right suddenly becomes paniced as he learns the Tatame Box is among the treasures gone.
Caribou discovers the treasure is missing
Caribou is finally conscious. As he searches his body, he's horrified to learn all the treasure he stole has gone missing. He no longer has a penny to go anywhere.
Neptune would like to be protected under Luffy's flag
In the Ryugu Place throne room, King Neptune meets with Jimbei. Neptune was surprised that Jimbei had agreed to have the Sun Pirates work for the Big Mam Pirates, but he also understands that it was to help protect the island. Jimbei knows that Big Mam is hardly a reasonable person, but let them do as they wanted. However, he is considering ending ties with Big Mam. King Neptune guesses that Jimbei is taking Luffy's offer to join the crew. He thinks it's a great idea since he would rather Fish-Man Island be under the protection of the Straw Hat flag.
The joyous mood is interrupted as Minister of the Right bursts in. He ask that Neptune to request the Straw Hats return the Tatame Box that is among the treasures he offered the crew. The king is enraged that he ask for something back, but it's revealed that Minister of the Right had placed a bomb inside of it many years ago after the contents had been originally stolen. It was meant to be a lesson to any future thief. They agree to come up with some fort of excuse when they return.
Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji soon arrive at the palace, but everyone is shocked that Luffy had already given all the treasure to Big Mam's crew. It was to protect the island and he tells them how he told her off. Jimbei, Brook, Usopp, and Chopper are in a shocked that he picked a fight with one of the Four Emperors. Robin only chuckles, and Shirahoshi is impressed with Luffy's strength. Usopp screams at her, but he then has to apologize for making her scared and cry. Neptune and Minister of the Right whisper among themselves. They're worried that is Big Mam opens the Tatami box that she'll think it was put there by Luffy, but they don't know what to do about it.
Nami clobbers the boys for giving away all the treasure
Nami on the other hand understands the situation they were in, but that still doesn't stop her from using her Sorcery Clima-Tact to attack Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji with a lightening attack that leaves them collapsed and bruised. She demands to know why they still felt the need to give them all the treasure. She threatens to hit them, and Chopper points out that she already did. Luffy mummbles through his bruised face that they should head for the New World, but the others wonder if it's to go there to die now.
Pekoms defeats Caribou in one punch
Outside the Candy Factory, Caribou is running to look for whoever stole his treasure. He sees Baron Tamago and Pekoms. They are just leaving as Caribou yells after them. Pekoms checks his chart and identifies Caribou and his 200 Million berry bounty. He tries to attack them with a Gatling Gun he had hidden inside his body. He fires on Pekoms and blasts him away, but what lands is a turtle shell. Pekoms body comes out of the shell and he's unharmed. Caribou realizes that he's a Zoan Devil Fruit user and lunges with a scythe, but Pekoms blows Caribou away with a single punch powered by Armament Haki. He comments on how Logia types who think they're invisible often die young before the pair pack up to leave. Among the crowd watching, the people comment on how Pekoms has over a 330 Million Berry bounty.
The Straw Hats ready to leave
Elsewhere, The Straw Hats are receiving a royal escort back to their ship, where Franky is waiting. They're finally ready to head into the New World.
Captain Tashigi scolds the G-5
On the other side of the Red Line, the Marines are overrun with coated pirate ships surfacing at random and all over at once. It's a fierce battle to survive on each side. On the ship of the Marine G-5, one rough looking soldier is cleaning a pair of glasses. As cannon fire in incoming, many of the soldiers swoon over protecting the captain. A young woman in a Marine captain's coat avoids their attempts, leaps into the air, and deflects the cannonball with her sword. It's Tashigi, who has become a Captain. She scolds the soldiers for not being serious, but she's apparently yelling at the ship's mast until one of the guys hands her glasses back. She's angry that they are taking her lightly becasue she's a woman.
Vice-Admiral Smoker interrogates the pirates
Her berating the men is put on hold as Smoker yells that he's trying to perform an interrogation. He has several pirates for questioning. He understands they they were held captive by Hordy Jones, and that's where there haven't been any ships coming through in the past month. One of the pirate captains correct Smoker that they were enslaved, but refuses to tell them the name of the pirates that save them. The other captain warns them they are caught by the Marine G-5, one of the craziest units that doesn't obey the commanding orders. They torture pirates for fun. To make matters worse, they were caught by Vice-Admiral Smoker.
Just to avoid death or torture, one of the captains agrees to give them the name of the pirate who freed them all. He says it was Straw Hat Luffy, but Smoker already knew that.
Points of Interest
- It's unknown who Caribou is referring to about reporting the information about Shirahochi's power.
- The possible source of Pekoms devil fruit powers is the legendary Turtle Lion. The turtle lion is based upon the Chinese mythology of the Xuanwu (玄武), known as Genbu in Japan; and is one of the four major Chinese constellations. Several statues of the Xuanwu can be found around the Forbidden Palace in Chine.
- Nami and Nico Robin are suddenly wearing new outfits while traveling back to their ship, but it's unknown where they got these clothes. Possibly from the clothes Nami got from Pappagu's store and never got the chance to take them to the ship.
- Franky, Fukaboshi, Ryuboshi, and Manboshi appear in this episode, but they have no spoken lines.
- Unlike most Marine Captains, Tashigi's long coat is a light pink instead of white.
- It's unknown who gave Smoker the large scar on his face. Between long absences, Smoker tends to return with some new scar.
