The crew have come to Sabaody Archipelago to get a special coating for their ship so they can travel to Fish-Man Island. It may seem like a great vacation spot, but it's filled with Marines, pirates, and kidnappers. Even worse then all of them put together are the tyrannical rulers of this land, The Celestial Dragons.

The Straw Hat crew has left the Thousand Sunny docked off of Sabaody Archipelago. One Sanji, Usopp, and Sanji are left of board. Usopp and Franky are refilling the Sunny's Cola Engines since so much was used before. Sanji is staying behind due to Nami's ability to manipulate him. She convinced him to stay behind to guard their treasure.
Zoro jumps off the boat for a walk. Usopp and Sanji try to keep him from leaving since he gets lost easily. Zoro dismisses that since all the groves here are numbered. He looks up at the Grove #41 tree, but due to a bubble obscuring the view. Zoro reads it as #1.
Hatchan is trying to explain to Luffy about the Celestial Dragons that could be on this island. He makes Luffy promise not to defy them. He also tells them about the Marines based here, other pirates, and kidnappers. Kidnapping and selling of people to slave markets is allowed here.
Luffy asks Hatchan about the bandage covering the tattoo, but he evades the question. He tells them on this island for Luffy and the others to act as if they are humans. Luffy doesn't understand why, but Robin notices something. She tells Luffy just to follow Hatchan's lead.
A bit later, Luffy is sicking his head and body into one of the bubbles of the island. They also rent bikes that are put into the bubbles to allow for travel. It's 500 Berries a day to rent. 10,000 Berries to buy. Luffy wants to buy one, but Hatchan insist on renting.
Luffy is set on buying one, but Hatchan reminds Luffy of what happened before when he stood on one of the bubbles that got too high in the sky. It popped. The bubbles can't exist outside of the Archipelago's climate. Luffy still doesn't understand until Nami explains they will pop "mysteriously". Camie tells him tat Fish-Man Island also has Bubble Bikes.
Pappagu says the Fish-Man Island's Princess is a great beauty.
In Grove #35, Luffy, Chopper, and Brook sample some of the food offered at stands. They find a lot of hotels in round forms. They take large bubbles and coat them with a metal alloy to prevent them ever popping. Nami sees a shopping mall and heads off with Robin.
Those left are heading toward Grove #13. Nami asks why Camie didn't come with them despite asking. Robin suspects some kind of bad history on this island.
Luffy and Hatchan are now in a heated race on Bubble Bikes.
In Grove #31, a large man is on some kind of rampage. He grabs a woman by the next. He's pleading for help. He wants someone to help him get a collar off his neck. he wants to go home.
Luffy and the others pull up to the commotion.
The large man throws the woman aside, and no one moves to help the begging man. he wants to go home and give up being a pirate to return home to his wife and child.
Luffy has finally arrived and is confused. Hatchan tells Luffy not to get involved since this man is a slave who has escaped his owner. Suddenly a chiming sound starts from the collar. It gets faster and faster, then is explodes around the mans neck.
This man is barely alive and collapses. Hatchan tries to comfort Camie and he tells Luffy to get out of his Bubble Bike immediately.
A small dog with a bubble on it's head walks up to the large injured man and pees on him. Everyone around kneels and bows. Luffy wonders if that is a Celestial Dragon, and Hatchan forces Luffy to bow.
Two Celestial Dragon approach. The are flanked by guards and one if guiding a large man by a chain.
The woman approaches the injured man and asks her father to buy her a new slave. She starts kicking the injured man. Luffy is getting more angry with every kick. She pulls a gun now and fires two shots into the man. Luffy tries to move, but Hatchan grabs and muffles him.
The Celestial Dragons leave and Marines show up to gather the injured pirate.
Some time later, Luffy is worried about the injured man. Hatchan says that since he is a pirate. If he survives it will mean going to jail. Chopper asks if this guy was so big and strong, why didn't he fight back.
Pappagu explains if you injure one of the Celestial Dragons. A Marine Warship will come along with one of the three admirals.
Chopper asks what makes them so important. The Celestial Dragons are the decedents of the twenty kings who created the World Government 800 years ago. With each generation have have become more reckless with power.
Watching Luffy and the others from above are a bunch of men who are holding Luffy's wanted poster.
