So Spandam isn't completely useless, and Zoro is going to fight Kaku.

Maybe next time Sanji will get the second strongest. =\

I would now like to point out that I have been saying the fighting will start at exactly 400 since 390.


I also have the following message to anybody who thought Zoro would fight anyone else than Kaku:

400話 開放の鍵

ココロ運転のロケットマン、空中で思い出すのは、トム。
「懐かしいね トムさん。ロジャーの奴も・・・こんな馬鹿野郎だったね。そいで_あんた手貸してやったんだ よね。
性懲りも無くトムズワーカーズ総出で海賊小僧に手かしてるよ。。。」

「あんたでも・・・こうしたろ?」

塔に突っ込んで止まるロケットマン。びびる・・スパンダム。
「惨殺を許可する!ルッチお前は俺と来い!何をおいても、まず俺の命を守れ!・・・
ファンクフリード!!(象)」スパンダムが象を呼ぶと、象は剣に変身する。(ゾウゾウの実)
ルッチとロビン、ゾウ剣を手にしたスパンダムは正義の門へ、急ぐ!

ちょっとまってね!

塔にロケットマンが突っ込んで、大賑わいのフランキー一家。

フランキーロケットマンに近より、「ココロのババー!チビども!なんでこんな所にいんだよ!」
                「ババーしっかりしろ!頼むからしぬな~~!」
・・・と心配するフランキーだが、鼻血だけのココロとチビたち。
 もちろん、おかしいくらい元気な麦わら一味。

そしてかいだんに向かうルフィのもとにフクロウが現れた!
「チャパパパ!もう二コロビンはいないぞー ルッチが正義の門へ連れてったからな・・・あと長 官も。
 今向かっているから、行き方は教えないし、俺達cp9はお前達を抹殺する指令が下ってる!ち ゃぱぱ!
 お前達は俺達を抹殺しなければ、ニコロビンを解放することはできないのだ!」

 「これを見ろ」鍵をみせるフクロウ。
 「海楼石の手錠の鍵だ。 お前達がニコロビンを救い出すことがあっても、海楼石はダイヤのよ うに
  硬いので 手錠は永遠に外れない。 それでもよければ助けに行け!」
 
じゃあよこせ!とルフィが手を伸ばすが、ソルで避けてしまう。

  「あわてるな、まだこの鍵が本物とは言っていない」とフクロウ。
 「なんだと!!」怒鳴る一同。
  「塔の中にcp9は五人いるが、それぞれ1つかぎを持って
   お前達を待っている」
  「くだらねー時間稼ぎを!」と。ゾロ。
そこでナミが名案を持ちかける。
「ロビン奪い返してから、やっつければいいじゃない!」

「お前頭いいな!でもそんなことしたら鍵捨てちゃうぞ!」脅し消えるフクロウ。


ごめんね遅くって!んじゃ最後まで!いっちょやってみっかぁ!!

興奮するルフィとルフィを抑えるゾロをよそに、相談する一味。もちろん・・・フランキーも。
中心はサンジ「ロビンちゃんが鳩男といんなら、ルフィだけ行かせよう!ぶっ飛ばせ!」
「ルフィを除いて俺たちは六人。鍵を五本手に入れ、ルフィを追う!」

「負けは時間のロス・・・全員死んでも勝て!!!」とゾロの一声で散らばる一味。


 ルッチを追うルフィ。
 
 体力が足りないとコーラを探すフランキーのもとにはフクロウが。

 ドアを開けまくるそげキングが開けたドアの先には睡眠中のジャブラ。
 
 地下通路を走るナミ。そこに現れたのは「よよい!よいよい!」クマドリ。

 部屋を探すサンジ。だが突然ドアがしまってしまう。振り向くとカリファ。
 「お茶でも入れましょうか?」「あ・・お願いしふ(目がハート)」

 ドアを開けたゾロ。その先には椅子に座るカク。

それぞれの戦いが来週始まりますよ~~~!
おしまいです!すぐに画像アップしますね!

BTW Kakus is gonna get burnt with that fireplace.

February 17, 2006, 12:02 PM

well, there's still one question:
who will chopper fight?? oO

but that was a nice chap, I think...it worked up to the big final^^

venicia777
February 17, 2006, 01:30 PM
i knew it was gonna be a pairing up- just like against crocodile and his number agents. i wonder how many chapters all this will take. this is gonna be great. i cant wait for Lucci vs Luffy- at least it will give Luffy some experience against guys like Aoki

Raw was pretty crap this week so i can only really get it this good :(

February 17, 2006, 10:38 PM
Here's the place to discuss chapter 401. :)

So, what do you think?
Will the Strawhat Pirate group be able get the right key in this chapter?
Which fight will we see first? Luffy's, Franky's, Nami's, Sogeking's, Sanji's? What will the fights be like?

EDIT:
You can find the 401 goodies here (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1584.0).

thanks man!!!

venicia777
February 18, 2006, 01:47 AM
they have to get the key- otherwise this mission woulda been almost pointless. but that wont happen in the near chapters. i predict we seeing the pairings for each fight and little exchanges b.n the opponents. and then luffy going off to search for lucci. then one of the fights will begin to end the chapter, not much fighting in my book

shinwei
February 18, 2006, 08:19 AM
The raw for this chapter is really hard to read since the text is so blurry. But here's the translation for the first few pages:

400-02.jpg
Everyone: UWAAAAAAA!
Kokoro: ngagagagagagaga!!
Chimney: We made it!
Gonbe: Nya-!!
Everyone: AAAAAAAAAA!

400-03.jpg
Kokoro (thinking): Sure brings back memories...
Kokoro: Ngagaga...
Tom (Flashback): I hold great pride in the power I gave...
Tom (Flashback): to the man named Gold Roger with a DON!
Luffy (Flashback): I'm Luffy, the man who will become the Pirate King.
Chimney (Flashback): Really?
Luffy (Flashback): Yep.
Kokoro (thinking): Roger was an idiot as too wasn't he?
Kokoro (thinking): That's why you helped him out.
Kokoro: I guess its in our nature
Kokoro: Tom's Workers will always lend a hand to pirates.
Kokoro (thinking): If you were here...
Luffy: We're gonna crash!!
Kokoro (thinking): You'd be doing this too, right?
Everyone: Kyaaa!

400-04.jpg
Everyone: Kyaaa!
Marine Guy: Run for it!
Spandam: They're here...

400-04.jpg
Spandam: THEY'RE HERE!!!
Spandam: Dammit! C'mere you!
Robin: Ugh...
Robin (thinking): If only I could remove these seastone handcuffs...
Spandam: CP9! You're cleared to go!
Spandam: Do not allow them to come up here!
Spandam: You are allowed to use lethal force!
Spandam: Lucchi! You come with me!
Spandam: If anything happens, protecting ME is your first priority!
Spandam: Funkfreed!

400-06.jpg
Spandam: Good girl.
Caption: Elephant-Sword Funkfreed (Zou Zou no Mi)
Spandam: To the Gate of Justice! You want this woman back, right?
Spandam: Let's see what you got, Straw Hat!

400-07.jpg
Franky House Member: Look! Big bro Franky is up there!
Franky House Member: The Straw Hats too!
Franky House Member: They made it to the Tower of Justice!
Franky House Member: Big Bro is no longer captive!
FHM: Looks like he's gonna join the fight!
FHM: Get'em bro!
FHM: Go Straw Hats!

Franky: Hey are you alright?
Franky: Kokoro-baba! What are you and the kids doing here?!
Franky: You even brought the Rocketman! The hell were you thinking?!
Franky: Hey! Granny! Wake up!
Franky: Don't die on me now!

400-08.jpg
Kokoro&Chimney: We have nosebleeds!
Franky: Nosebleeds don't make you go unconscious!

Luffy: All right! We're here!
Franky: Straw Hat...

Luffy: Thanks Granny!
Luffy: Hey get up already you guys! That fall shouldn't have hurt.

Sanji: We're not... rubber... like you...
Sanji: When normal people... fall... from that height... they...
(Mouth Breather BB Font suggested for talk like this, try it, it may or may not look good)

Everyone: GET TOTALLY PISSED!!
Luffy: Everyone's OK.
Franky: You guys are all pretty weird.
Franky: Just thought I'd let you know.

400-09.jpg
Luffy: There's some stairs leading up.
Luffy: Let's hurry up and get to Robin.

Fukurou: Hold up!
Luffy: What's that?

Fukurou: Chapapapapa!!
Fukurou: Looks like you made it in,
Fukurou: But even if you make it to the top,
Fukurou: Nico Robin isn't there anymore.
Fukurou She's on her way with Lucchi to the Gate of Justice.
Strawhats: EH!?
Fukurou: Oh, and the director's with them too.

400-10.jpg
Fukurou: Of course, I won't tell you how to get there.
Fukurou: We CP9 have been ordered to eliminate you.
Fukurou: Chapapa!!

Fukurou: If you don't take us out,
Fukurou: You can't save Nico Robin.

Fukurou: Take a look at this.

Luffy: A key?!
Sanji: Huh?

Fukurou: This key is for the seastone handcuffs
Fukurou: that Nico Robin is currently wearing.

Chopper: Seastone?
Nami: Its a stone that seals Devil Fruit abilities.
Nami: It has the same effect as falling in the ocean for you guys.

Chopper: So that's why Robin's being so obedient.
Chopper: She has no choice.

Fukurou: Even on the off chance that you are to escape with Nico Robin,
Fukurou: Since seastone is as hard as diamond,
Fukurou: Those handcuffs will remain on her forever!

Fukurou: If you're alright with that, then go ahead.

Luffy: HAND IT OVER!

Luffy: ...looks like he can do that too.

Fukurou: Hey, chill!
Fukurou: I haven't told you whether or not this key was real.
Everyone: WHAT THE @#%@?!

400-12.jpg
Fukurou: It could be a fake..
Fukurou: Chapapapa..!

Fukurou: In this tower there are 5 members of the CP9.
Fukurou: Each is waiting for you with keys of their own.

Zoro: So we just have to take all of you out...
Zoro: And try out all the keys on Robin's handcuffs, right?

Sanji: We don't have time for this! Robin's moving towards the Gate of Justice as we speak!

Nami: We're going after Robin!

Nami: We'll get Robin first,
Nami: Then we can take our time,
Nami: With these guys.

Fukurou: Chapapapa! That's a good idea,
Fukurou: But if you do that...

400-13.jpg
Fukurou: You'll find this key
Fukurou: On the bottom of the ocean!

Fukurou: The rest is up to you to decide.
Fukurou: See ya!

Luffy: HEY!
Luffy: Get back here!

Zoro: YOU get back here!
Luffy: Hogagagagaga~

Luffy: hungogagagaga~
Luffy: Ret me go demmit!
Zoro: Stop! You're just gonna get lost! We need to come up with a plan first!
Sanji: Lucchi is the guy with the hat right?
Franky: Yea that's him.

Sanji: Since he's with Robin,
Sanji: We should let Luffy go after him alone.
Sanji: Luffy! Go take out the guy with the hat!

400-14.jpg
Sanji: Not counting Luffy, there's 6 of us here.
Sanji: We'll take out the 5 CP9 members and get their keys.
Sanji: Then we're going up with Luffy!

Sogeking: If Robin passes through that gate, then its all over.
(can't really tell what those Kanji at the end of this line are - need a better scan)

Luffy: Fugigigigigi!

Zoro: Losing is a waste of time.

Zoro: This is it! Win at all costs!
Everyone: OU!

400-15.jpg
Spandam: WUHAHAHAHA!!
Spandam: They'll never get here on time, Nico Robin!
Spandam: They don't even know
Spandam: How to get to the Gate of Justice!

Luffy: If I go straight to where they were before,
Luffy: I should bump into them somewhere!

Luffy: I WON'T LET YOU GO THROUGH THAT GATE!
Luffy: ROBI------N!!!

400-16.jpg
Franky: Huff.. huff..
Franky: Damn, before I fight...
Franky: I need to find somewhere to recharge!
Franky: The "Coup de Boo" I used earlier used up a half a bottle of cola!
Franky: I've already used up more than two bottles today!

Franky: If I'm gonna fight the CP9, I'll need a full recharge!
Franky: Ah~ There's gotta be some fuel around here somewhere!

Fukurou: Chapapapapa!
Fukurou: I am the rumor-loving "Silent Fukurou!"
Fukurou: You want the key don't you?

Franky: Crap! I'm not ready for this yet!

400-17.jpg
Sogeking: Empty, empty, empty!
Sogeking: All these rooms are empty!
Sogeking (thinking): Empty rooms aren't so bad...

Sogeking: Aha!
Sogeking: Fear me!

Jabura: Zzzzz...
Jabura: Zzzzzz....

Sogeking (thinking): He's sleeping... is he really one of the CP9?
Sogeking (thinking): Hm?!

Sogeking (thinking): The key is right there!
Sogeking (thinking): I'm so lucky! Maybe I can take it without waking him up!

Nami: What's this? A basement..?
Nami: huff, huff

400-18.jpg
Kumadori: Yoyoi! Yoi yoi!!
Kumadori: Cursed pirate! There you are!
Kumadori: Aiya! Hold..
Kumadori: Hold it right theeeere!!!

Kumadori: Yoyoi!!
Nami (thinking): He's frigging loud..!!

Sanji: Let's try this room!

Sanji: huff, huff,
Sanji: Dammit,
Sanji: No one's here either?!

Kalifa: Welcome.

400-19.jpg
Kalifa: Should I brew some tea?
Sanji: Ye..
Sanji: Yes please!!

Kaku: I see you've already
Kaku: Drawn your blade.

Zoro: Its howling...
Zoro: for your blood.

-END OF CHAPTER-

So there you have it. I had to do a lot of guess-work for the blurry Kanji but it should be mostly correct.

February 18, 2006, 02:16 PM
Haha true. Of course they will have to get the key in order to accomplish their mission. The question was more directed into if they will get it in this chapter but I was not very clear I admit.

Which fight are you most looking for?

xallisto
February 18, 2006, 03:01 PM
not at all, the only reason i put it ehre was because sombody (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1264.msg16346#msg16346) asked for it and the text is easier to read :)

Kickmeister
February 18, 2006, 03:45 PM
I predict Luffy's fight will be the last! : ) Grand Finale

Edit: Most looking forward to seeing Sogeking fight! It's finally time for Usopp to shine!

Miso
February 18, 2006, 04:45 PM
Yeah, I would also like to see Usopp's fight. He's quite good with his dials. I'm looking forward how he'll utilize them in this fight.

Finally everybody is hoping for sogeking- me too. i have been wishing he stops his "i have a sudden sickness, i have fear for ..." at least more than once (like when he decided to fight against Luffy) and actually also stop feeling soo inferior. But of course that is what makes me like him- and gives a lot of laughs too.

Luffys fight should be last- it is the climax i expect but in the next chapter it can be any fight that gets started. i want to see how zorro pays back kaku

shinwei
February 18, 2006, 09:42 PM
It's done! If someone can find a better raw scan changes can be made.

ax999
February 18, 2006, 10:50 PM
i would bet that one of luffy's crew has to lose their battle (not next ch. though), or else who can chopper fight? i think it would probably be franky what do you guys think?

So Spandam isn't completely useless, and Zoro is going to fight Kaku.

Maybe next time Sanji will get the second strongest. =\

Yeah I was wondering where Chopper was... ;__; Argh the fight between Karifa and Sanji is going to be HYSTERICAL, I cannot wait. I just remember the fight between Sanji and Mr. 2, whenever he turned into Nami and Sanji got all wiggly and "mellorine mellorine!" <3 <3 <3
Hm, I don't know - maybe Chopper and Franky will end up fighting Jyabura together?

Miso
February 19, 2006, 06:06 PM
A double fight would be bleh...:darn I really also hope for Chopper to have his own possiblity to shine.
Somehow it occurs to me that most of our Strawhat Pirates are a bit inferior to CP9 in battle skills and powers.
Sogeking and Chopper both have their strong points but normally I wouldn't think that they can defeat CP 9 members as they were introduced to us as being very strong. But surely both will grow in their battles and there will be possibly a chance to defeat them.
After all the story is set. They have to fight CP9 and as I don't believe that Oda will kill them they will manage to survive somehow.

Let's see:

Fukurou vs Franky
Kaku vs Zoro
Jyabura vs Usopp
Kumadori vs Nami
Kalifa vs Sanji
Spandam vs Chopper?
Lucchi vs Luffy

I'd say we'll probably get Usopp and Jyabura this chapter.

I want to know what Chopper's gonna be up to. It doesn't seem like Sogeking can take out Jabura, nor do I think Nami has a chance in hell against Kumadori, so Chopper will probably go help one of them. Either that or he will go replace Sanji against Kalifa, and Sanji will once again go save Usopp's butt.

It would be hard and stupid to make Sogeking beat Jabura and Nami beat Kumadori since they are very strong you can't just get so strong just like that ... they didn't even fight much during the Skypiea saga.
Jabura is like with a physcial power level of over 2000 which is 3rd strongest hmm...
I think they will make usopp win somehow either by luck or maybe the other guy is very dumb !! and being a good liar usopp is .. he probably gets beaten like that !! Similar to what happen in Chopper Vs Priest

Who is the strongest in the Mugiwara Crew
1.Luffy
2. Zoro
3.Robin
4.Sanji
4.Ussop or Chopper
5.Nami

Just curious why Oda gave Sogeking Jabura as his opponent

Hehe...I always thought that Nami is stronger than Usopp. Her climatact is due to Usopp's modification very good and she knows how to use it.
But...well..I won't fight over it.

I also hope for Usopp do deal with his opponent alone. After all he is the underdog and loser type I would like to see him winning gloriously one time.

Who is the strongest in the Mugiwara Crew
1.Luffy
2. Robin (I'm not sure how Zoro could break free of her hands)
3.Zoro
4.Sanji
5. Chopper
6. Nami
7. Usopp

I agree with Miso here - Usopp may have a lot of nice weapons, but in the end Nami could probably still outsmart him. If you're gonna count weapons as being part of somebody's strength, you should always count smarts as well.

Just curious why Oda gave Sogeking Jabura as his opponent

lol perhaps he really does just steal the key while hes sleeping :P

in the right situation though usopp could hit the bad guys with a sniper-esque weapon and hit them plain between the eyes, i think that he is the only long range fighter and at long range he is very dangerous.

Yeah Nami is smarter but in terms of who can take a beaten and physcial strength usopp wins !
usopp is faster and more stronger and when he fought luffy when he was still badly injured thats what made me think that his stronger than nami thats all

hehe if usopp wins it will be very weird because you can't just get so strong just in one battle but we'll see what oda does

February 22, 2006, 03:38 AM
I won't argue about who is stronger: Nami or Usopp. I just think that Nami's smartness can really be a weapon in a fight. Remember Shikamaru (Naruto) you'll see that he just outwitted his enemies.


Don't Forget, Usopp got some nice toys from Skypea!!

As well as Nami. Usopp has refined her weapon into the climatact with using dials. Though I won't say that they are even in this regards Usopp doesn't have too much advantages when it comes to weapons either.

mistabuu
February 22, 2006, 04:52 AM
Do you guys remember when Usop faught against Luffy?

Usop can hold his own now. Those dials are pretty strong. Luffy, Sanji, and Usop got pretty messed up when fighting the fat ball guy at Skypiea from his impact dials. Usop is still physically weak, but i think hes going to come out on top by using his dials in some creative fasion.

Franky, Nami, usopp, Sanji and then Zoro

February 22, 2006, 12:47 PM
man the next chapters are going to be so good...im glad that the straw hat pirates werent placed w/ their equal counterpart in cp9(for the most part anyway). it will be fun to see how ussop takes on the number 3 member of cp9...

my strongest to weakest(overall imo)
1- luffy
2 - robin
3- sanji/zoro
5- chopper
6- ussop
7- nami

it was tough to decide between nami and ussop, but ussop will risk everything if he has to, nami will use her sneakiness and in a fight to the end, talking your way out of a fight will be tough.

Kickmeister
February 22, 2006, 01:14 PM
Well the thing people tend to forget about the "weaker" ones.. They will have to become stronger since the opponents obviously will become stronger.. So it won't be weird if Usopp has got enough firepower to beat the crap out of Jyabura ^^ Don't underestimate him ;)

this exactly my rating for the crew. although at times i think sanji and zoro and robin are pretty damn close. any fight b.n any two will be too close to call. Luffy on the other hand is miles ahead.

oh! heavens help nami and usopp! i wouldnt be shocked if they won or received help in winning-(i remember nami winning against one of crocodiles top ladies). it is manga- anything is possible- i just hope it is convincing- and that not all the crew members win. But i want luffy to beat down Lucci- if he cant then how in heavens name is he going to be able to fight the likes of aokiji and others

actually Robin takes out both Sanji and Zoro due to her ability, she can take out everyone who can't dissolve or bend(like luffy) due to her devil fruit.

as for nami, her new Clima tact puts her above both Usopp and Chopper as far as i've seen.

so rank (if they fight eachother) it'd prob be, #1 Luffy #2 Robin #3 Zoro #4 Sanji #5 Nami #6 Usopp/Chopper, but then again, Zoro might > Luffy and Sanji(or Sanji > Luffy and Zoro, ya you get my point.) but not robin so i can't really put it in order.

Nah, I think that Zoro would still beat Robin, maybe Sanji too. They've both proved in the past that they can kick the asses of Devils Fruit users pretty well. As for my list, I'd say

Luffy (absolutely number one)
Zoro
Sanji
Robin
Chopper
Usopp / Nami

Franky - we have yet to see where he'll go in this, but I suspect he'll be around Sanji and Robin's level.

As for fights, I can't WAIT for Usopp's!!!! I hope that he wins by himself, to give back some of that confidence. Considering how he did with Luffy, I think it's possible. =^.^=

LoL :tem I guess no one expected Kaku's evil fruit to be that :darn
Sounds like a great chapter, with a twist at the end.

Next it's Franky, Sanji, Nami and missing Chopper (could he be looking for Robin? Or even stumbled with them?)
The predicions for next chapter should be guessing what evil fruit each CP9 member ate :eyeroll

Usopp :noworry goes to the bottom of the list... thought it was his moment to shine! Maybe next chapters... in the 2 vs 2

i foresee a flea bomb in sogekings fight ^ ^ against jyabura. or make him chase a bone off the fort or something silly
nami will probably make kumadori kill himself =p
sanjis going to have a hard time against karifa, till she uses her devils fruit ability =) , hippo would be hilllarious

Predator
February 22, 2006, 08:10 PM
So that's what the others from CP9 meant when they told that you don't know what ability you get.
Kalifa won't have Zoan group ability as I think the form of DevFruit signified the difference in abilities they give.

And I cruelly much agree with anbutofu that nami could make her oponent to commit sempuku. He has been proposing to do it for some time already. This time it could be for hurting a lady. If this goes on like this we'll get used to non-cliche solutions.

EDIT: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1584.0 <= go here for the 'goodies', it's the aforementioned RAW/Scan/Trans thread...

Anyway, I might as well start this one off to christen the newly-expanded One Piece section.

Zoro and Kaku sure had an *awesome* fight, and Kaku's Devil Fruit was pretty amusing. We also saw Usopp being threatened by Jyabura in werewolf form. What's next? What else will we see in chapter 402? Predict away!

and xallisto comes to the rescue. what a wonderful chapter. Reading this cleaned version is much bette. Wow- was it the giraffe(kaku) That destroyed the ceiling!!! i mean those guys(cp9) are too strong already. they have techniques to fly/float/fight from the air- wow!!! and one kick can slash huge buildings intwo. with these extra powers kaku has gained i will really be surprised and disappointed if zoro manages to win easily (oh damn!!! it is manga so he will win anyways) it will be great if at least the story becomes a little realistic- like 2 or 3 mugiwara crew band together and bash the head of one cp9 agent and move on to the next one. and through their experiences they develop new fighting skills(of course 1 on 1 will also do the same thing)

hmm!!! i think i am looking for cliffhangers- twists that will keep us reading One Piece more and more, bring in more fans, and keep us rivetted to our seats.

Miso
February 26, 2006, 01:29 PM
Yeah...Kaku is gorgeous.
First, his ability is so nicely ridiculous. I mean....a giraffe!? :rofl Not very suitable for a fight.
Second, as already mentioned, he can't control his ablity so we will see some funny things from him.
I'm not sure how the Sogeking - Jyubura and the Zorro - Kaku fight will go on as they were both disrupted by Kaku's transformation. I think it will somehow settle down so that we can see some battle scenes again, at least with Sogeking.
For a prediction I think we will see Califa and her ability next time IMO.

i think that was why jyaburo was so excited since he is a werewolf and it might feel to him that makes him stronger. But i assure you giraffes have  powerful hoof strength. Never underestimate their kicking power- as i already said somewhere giraffes can crush a lions skull- that is why a liion attacking a giraffe avoids the hoofs at every cost. But with kakus skills ( roku-shiki involving soru etc) this fight is up in the air.

i expect to see some scenes of the other guys- luffy reaching the gate- nami and choppers fights and probably sanji been wowed crazy by califa.

Manetheren
February 27, 2006, 01:22 AM
I figure we will probably start out the chapter with one of the other's confrontations beginning, and then cut back to the Kaku/Zoro and Ussop/Jyabura fights, maybe then ending the chapter with another fight starting... Or seeing Luffy completely lost in trying to find the gate (I'd say him getting lost is about a 75% chance.)

Zoro and Usopp asked Chopper to go find the #2 key, because all the handcuffs and keys are apparently numbered. Zoro and Usopp are handcuffed with the #2 cuffs and neither Kaku nor Jabura have the #2 key. Hearing this, Chopper gets really happy to be called their only "hope" and runs off looking for Sanji, whom he believes would be the one to defeat the enemy first.

Sogeking ( who could it be? ) wants to snipe-shoot the handcuffs to Kaku and Jyabura ( if that is his name... ) to stop their devils fruit abilities, but he accidently hits Zoro ( so much for the SNIPERking... ), and in the mayhem following Zoro's attack on Kaku, they both end up cuffed together... very smexy

as usual the straw hat crew seems completly lost, no way they can win and maybe this time it will be true!

Hermie
March 05, 2006, 10:24 AM
Now that translations are out, I must say, this is one of the funniest chapters in a long time. I laughed so much when I realized Sogeking missed because Kaku looked so funny. xD

Hermie
March 05, 2006, 10:33 AM
So, Zoro and Ussopp are caught together, Kaku is funny-looking, Chopper has an important task, Nami is in trouble, and Sanji is such an idiot.


The question is, what happens next...?

EDIT: 403 out! (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1920.0) - GK



402 goodies (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1638.0) and discussion (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1573.0)

The only thing I can guess that happens right now is that Chopper will run into someone, most likely Sanji or Nami.

moridin
March 05, 2006, 12:03 PM
I think we'll see more of Sanji v Calipha and we'll find out how Luffy plans to get across to the gate of justice. Chopper will probably spend some more time running around, I actually think he'll just be too-ing and fro-ing between places for the most part and offering help from time to time whilst he collects up the keys.

oh and hermie, glad to see the quote in your sig :P

Miso
March 05, 2006, 12:15 PM
This is surely one of the best ones in the last time. :rofl
I just love how Kaku looks in his beast-man-form - his square nose is so gorgeous. :nod
But you can't deny that his Giraffe form got him a boost of power - to destroy the Tower of Justice with his Rankyaku! :blink

It's so typically clumsy how Zorro and Sogeking/Usopp got chained together...

Miso
March 05, 2006, 12:18 PM
I hope to see more of the Nami fight.
And of course we will see more of Chopper searching for Sanji which will also gives us a little sight of the Sanji/Califa fight. Perhaps Califa's ability this time?
Mmh... I don't think we'll see much of Luffy next time.
All in all, I mostly agree to moridin....:p

this is obviously the end of the this whole arc.

but for this week- i am anticipating califa vs sanji to have some pages devoted to them. Califa realizes sanji is reading her moves well evn including soru and the rest of rokushiki and turns because sanji wants this over quick. I hope she doesnt turn into a beautiful woman- sanji will be dead.

and then chopper getting interrupted somehow. we may see more of namis fight- i really doubt she wins- she will need help from somebody maybe chopper. that will make this very interesting and more realistic.

oh! not forgetting Franky working his ass off this time since he doesnt have his coke yet.

why sogeking got soo clumsy i dont get it. this is supposed to serious and for his redemption back into the group. Probably he is still his lying self because he is not used to whatever weapon he is using now.

Now you see why i said a giraffes leg power is formidable. it is what they use as defense against attacks from wild animals like liions- one hit on the head and you are gone. no wonder it crushed the ceiling him and zorro were standing on to fight. just incredible.

aburame
March 06, 2006, 01:47 PM
It was a joke - he missed because he was distracted by Kaku's large and scariness. Even Zoro was affected by it and unable to focus.

I think Usopp is going to come out pretty awesome after all of this.

Galth
March 06, 2006, 05:36 PM
Well... or he won't... and just asks to join the Strawhats again, Luffy would agree, and you still have funny Usopp-ness around xD Why should he change to a 'great warrior' if we like him as he is now, and he wins every now and then or accidently helps the rest...?

venicia777
March 06, 2006, 09:54 PM

do you really believe that. after what he said before he did that!!! sogeking just wanted to be safe- he needed a team mate. it is too weird he got cuffed with zoro. those guys were too strong and zoro was there in time to offer help- i wonder why no one said this. i dont know whether i am on the mark- but wit the way usopp is- and afraid- i wouldnt be surprised if he orchestrated this himself, not by accident.

Galth
March 07, 2006, 12:17 AM
He just isn't that smart... and he is clumsy :D so i go with option 1: everything went like he said so...

venicia777
March 07, 2006, 12:50 PM
He just isn't that smart... and he is clumsy :D so i go with option 1: everything went like he said so...


that is certainly true. One thing about OP is that i laugh soo hard at certain moments- they like to create light moments wit laughter even at the most serious times. i wouldnt be amazed if zoro/usoop cuffing is a play off of that.

Miso
March 07, 2006, 01:34 PM
We just can't change the way Usopp is - regardless of his goal to get a great warrior or to get back on the team being cool Sogeking.

I think he has gotten stronger but nevertheless he is still quite clumsy...:D

I think his fight will be a mix between ability and his luck. One the one hand I think he'll show us his ablities but I can also image that on the other hand he will win by accident.
Something like: He beats his enemy with all his might and you might already think that he has beaten him. But then - as we know CP9 - his opposer will get a boost of strength because being pissed off by Usopp and will strike back.
In the end Usopp will somehow manage to win.
So 1st half: Usopp pwnz!
2nd half: Clumsy Usopp wins by accident....

Galth
March 07, 2006, 04:34 PM
Hehe, like it always went...

Even though Usopp is supposed to be 'weak' ( i.e. he doesn't have any cool ability or strong fists etc ) he did manage to fight admirably when needed, he was the first to defeat his opponent at Arlong Park and he really kicked ass vs Luffy!!

And he would have been the first to get the key if it wasn't for that chicken

I believe he will take out one CP9 member during this arc, which is quite a feat for a puny human :p

heaven
March 07, 2006, 11:04 PM
I think calipha will want to show off her powers, which will deform how she looks. Sanji wont find her attractive anymore and will fight seriously, I can also see her getting the crap kicked out of her for awhile before she realizes that he cant fight her in the normal form. So she will revert back and who knows where it will go from there

ramza85
March 08, 2006, 08:00 PM

sanji willl lose due to his weakness to woman...
nami will win with chopper help...
luffy will use gear three!!!

Zero1986
March 08, 2006, 10:30 PM
I only loosley follow the OP manga, I've read a ton of them but I must have missed this "gear" thing. What exactly is a gear and furthermore, what is gear three?

Galth
March 08, 2006, 10:48 PM
Check the Luffy vs Blueno fight a few chapters back, that's where it was introduced...

Zero1986
March 08, 2006, 10:59 PM
Oh man, I need to get back to reading the manga. Do you happen to know which chapter it was? Was it before or after they left Water 7? Unless you're talking about the Blueno fight at the mansion where luffy got his but kicked.

Galth
March 08, 2006, 11:10 PM
After, at the top of the bridge house, where they waited for the bridge to lower

Chapter 388 -> just after he initiated Gear 2 and he starts to use and explain what it is.

i am soo eager- to know what this gear 3 level does. i havent heard this term used in name for power/strength levels until 388. even though most didnt talk about it until gear 3- lets see what it does and i hope luffy doesnt require meat to replenish his strength because the fight hasnt even started yet

I think we're going to see Luffy and Chopper mostly next chapter, and then back to the rest of the gang in the following chapter.

I've gotta say, though, out of the three major manga, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, OP's definitely the toughest to predict at this point.

venicia777
March 09, 2006, 12:25 AM
gear 3- ahh!!! i cant get it out of myhead. is it one of the Rokushikis(tekkai, shigan, soru, rankyaku, ...) that Luffy has mastered or what- that will be good- reallly good. He will need that against Lucci. and More meat if necessary

i am glad it is the least predictable this week. It keeps us avid fans still around and interested. it will be really boring if out of experience with it we can basically predict what is about to happen. Well, something like this is needed after 400 chapters of manga and 258 eps of anime. i just hope the anime lasts- i really want to see the animation of this arc. it doesnt look like it though

March 09, 2006, 12:26 AM

Gold Knight
March 09, 2006, 12:32 AM
From wikipedia:

Gear 1: Normal State

Gear 2: Not acquired till Water 7. It's a hardened version of his body acquired through Vulcanization. Allows the use of "Soru", near instant movement, and "Jet" Versions of his attacks that can hit at a distance. During Gear 2, Luffy is also seen emitting steam from his body as a result of his vulcanization.

Gear 3: Just before Blueno collapses, Luffy mentions going a step further. This may refer to other forms of attacks using Gear 2, another one of the Rokushiki powers beyond Soru, or a true third gear in strength.

* * *

Looks like you aren't alone in speculating that, venicia.

Either way, I'll wager my house the move will increase his kinetic energy - leading to a bigger overall collison.

venicia777
March 09, 2006, 12:41 AM
i remember luffy telling Blueno that he was really tough- and that he was going to show him something more interesting- right before Blueno collapsed- i guess that is gear 3. it will be really awesome if it is completely new and not a hybrid of the rokushikis. Unfortunately, his gear two was based off soru- i think- so it might really be based on the rokushikis.

ahh ! well will have to wait for the chapter to fully come out.

The goodies of 403 (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1920.0)


Last chapter, Sanji got owned (T_____________T), Nami and Kalifa challenge eachother, Chopper gave Kumadori a beatdown, and Luffy used Gear 3 and became..... a chibi?!



[editedit]I lied, there will be a chapter next week. :D

SchmoDawg
March 10, 2006, 07:03 PM
Well I'm pretty sure there is no way Nami can beat Kalifa unless her ability is absolutely stupid and Sanji got beat just because he wouldnt kick her. They will deffinately show Kalifa's ability and hopefully Franky beating zipper mouth. Maybe we'll even get an explanation of why luffy is a midget (was that the move he was gonna use on Blueno???). Zoro and Sogeking will still be running around handcuffed. I also predict that Kalifa has the key.

venicia777
March 10, 2006, 08:45 PM
that is way into the future. franky may join or may not- since he already has a crew. Or he builds a ship large enough to hold both the straw hats and his crew. But this is way into the future- lets talk about 403 now.

i never dreamt gear 3 is been a midget- ahahaaaa. i laughed soo hard when i saw that my chest almost exploded. I love this manga. you can barely predict what is gonna happen.

what can the midget do?

venicia777
March 10, 2006, 08:49 PM
i agree- there is no way nami can beat califa. but you should understand she may not stand by a fight a guy-i am talking abut nami here- but as common to women she may stand and face Kalifa. and on top of that you know nami is aware that chopper is around,a s well as sanji- so there is help near by if she needs it.

i like the way this arc is turning out- the one on one matchups didnt work out so well- that is just genius.

and the midget- for gear 3 is unbelievable. i mean an unbelievable development- what can he do.

what can the midget do? this plus namis fight plus frankys and some of zorros fight will be in the next chapter.

ax999
March 11, 2006, 02:29 AM
i think franky will join, theyve been saying for a while now that they need a shipwright in the crew.

as for the type of fruit that Kalifa got, maybe it is a zoan type... an oyster, they make shiny things...

Gold Knight
March 11, 2006, 02:47 AM
They need an excellent ship carpenter - I don't think Franky would be a good one, he's a scavenger who may know how to make warships but I'm not sure if they're that reliable. I would rather go with Paulie, he's a better overall character, we already know he's one of the best carpenters there, and not SO eccentric.

Maybe when this arc is over, Paulie will be in trouble with debts again (remember, he tried to steal Luffy's money at one point) and he'll just decide to go with Luffy's crew as a sort of thank-you AND to collect some treasures to pay off his debts before he can go back to Water 7.

I didn't realize Kalifa used her Devil Fruit power at all in this chapter, is that why Sanji looked so decimated at one point? That confused me.

Gold Knight
March 11, 2006, 02:50 AM
Maybe Luffy's chibi form is a compression of his powers - when he "releases" himself, it'll be like a rubber explosion with the force of an A-bomb. o_o;;

I think Nami is being seriously underestimated here. I think she'll win.

His colorspreads are definitely awesome. Even if I wasn't a fan of the story, I would've still kept a collection of Oda's colorspreads or brought an OP art book.

like an A-bomb explosion after implosion- eh! good point. apart been able to get into places a normal-sized human cant does it make him harder than steel, faster than the fastest seen so far, or stronger than gear 2's power/strength. Next chapter would explore something about gear 3, and something on franky's and zoros fights

many of us are looking forward to luffy's fight- but most people know what may happen. What is most interesting is that the incidents happening right now with kalifa, kaku's transformation, sanji's getting beat really good, and the midget transformation has soo much fascinated us that luffys fight is not the main deal anymore. i mean this arc is so exciting already- and i want to see more.

I think it's good to have those funny fights although I have hoped for Sanji to be a bit tougher and not to fall into Kalifa's pace. Although it fits his character....

And Nami's fight seems to be some fan-service for our male readers up till now. :oh

Miso
March 11, 2006, 07:26 PM
I think Nami is being seriously underestimated here. I think she'll win.


YAY for Nami! :occa

It would be very difficult for Nami to win. Although Califa isn't the strongest in the rows of CP9 she has some awesome skills plus an yet unknown Devil Fruit's ability.
But every time Nami fights she gets stronger. So you can't compare her to the last fight.
Her good point would be her tactical mind. She's not hot-head but calculating. It could be an advantage over her enemy. However, I'm not sure if it is enough to beat Califa.

As for a prediction I think we will see some misc fights: a bit more about Zorro, Sogeking and the Franky fight as well as what Nami and chopper do. And how Luffy will manage to keep trace of the pigeion boy.

:D I realize that this prediction is kinda useless because I didn't excluse anything in total...@__@

Hermie
March 11, 2006, 08:12 PM
Yeah, Nami'll win, I belive.

Sanji had no problem controlling Kalifa without touching her, before the DF came into play. She is also the weakest CP9 in strength terms. Also, now Nami has the Dial Tact, which took out an entire regiment of Marines, and Zoro and Sanji. :p

I just noticed something while going over the HQ raw again..

Chopper is in Arm Point both times when he is attacking in this chapter.
This means he either
-ate a rumble ball already
-learned how to transform into arm point without rumble ball!!


I really really really hope it's the last option. :wtf

EvilSniffles
March 12, 2006, 04:06 AM
one: luffy gear 3 form blew opened the steel doors, which I think no one really noticed, the size maybe a side effect of his power increase, or a more easier way to store the energy

two: if you notice the thing with chopper is that he is changing forms more easily, I think the rumble balls just increase what power he has, a booster so to speak like how luffy uses meat as a booster or oda didn't wanna show him eating a rumble ball each time, but I think it is the first one.

three: nami's clima tact rods, I assume after her first try with them and her understanding of weather, her strength should have increased a good bit

blood thirsty!!! man!!! that is alright. but i like manga that is not predictable, taht is not just full of fights to the end- that loses a lot of edge after sometime. even kenshin used to have funny moments, same in bleach, in naruto, except One piece really makes it a point to make some funny moments- that is why i like it soo much. it is what makes it slightly different. just imagine all fights and seriousness for 403 chapters- man!!! you will get bored to death eventually of predictability.

Mogeking
March 12, 2006, 09:40 PM
I agree with most of the predictions, but I suspect that in the next chapter not only will we see all the things mentioned above, but we will also see Zoro and Usopp working toghether in an unprecedented show of power. 2 heads are better than one, especially when they are connected by handcuffs and can't do anything about getting away. It may be something like a sniper sword attack of sorts. (long distance impaling :tem yay!)

blood thirsty!!! man!!! that is alright. but i like manga that is not predictable, taht is not just full of fights to the end- that loses a lot of edge after sometime. even kenshin used to have funny moments, same in bleach, in naruto, except One piece really makes it a point to make some funny moments- that is why i like it soo much. it is what makes it slightly different. just imagine all fights and seriousness for 403 chapters- man!!! you will get bored to death eventually of predictability.


Good point.
OP is one of the most ridiculous and most funny stories out there but it fits perfectly to the story.



I just noticed something while going over the HQ raw again..

Chopper is in Arm Point both times when he is attacking in this chapter.
This means he either
-ate a rumble ball already
-learned how to transform into arm point without rumble ball!!


I really really really hope it's the last option. :wtf


After reading your post I looked into the chap again and it seems that you are right. You don't see him eating a Rumble Ball.
It would be really cool if Chopper had increased his fighting abilites and power by being able to transform into Arm Point without the Rumble Ball.
If I remember correctly, CP9 members are able to do that, right? They said something of 7 levels but they obviously don't use the RB because it is Chopper's invention.

Just so you know, there definitely will be a chapter this week, followed by a colorspread with ch.405 (Jump #17).

It seems last week's summary guy made a mistake with the Jump 16 listings, and has since been corrected.

Thanks Touch - you made my day! :dance



I agree with most of the predictions, but I suspect that in the next chapter not only will we see all the things mentioned above, but we will also see Zoro and Usopp working toghether in an unprecedented show of power. 2 heads are better than one, especially when they are connected by handcuffs and can't do anything about getting away. It may be something like a sniper sword attack of sorts. (long distance impaling :tem yay!)


A Zorro/Usopp combo is definitely coming in some time. We all have been waiting for this since they have been handcuffed.
But I'm really eager to see what they will come up with....:D
A combined Sword/Sniper attack - I'm not sure how this will work :oh - I'm thinking more of that everyone will use his own technique but they will time them so that the attacks come in more handy.
It will be difficult to have a combined simultaneous attack I think.

we all seem to be hoping for the seemingly weaker guys (weaker than zorro and robin and of course luffy) to gain an advantage or become stronger. Yeah!!! i really hope chopper has grown stronger- but i will really be disappointed if Usopp doesnt do anything amazing at all. I know he has the vials from skypiea- i just wish he can use them to aid zoro instead of depending on zoro or rahter impeeding him.

similarly i am just wishing nami puts up a fight before getting saved. Will she be able to fight a devil fruit rokushiki user like califa. Oh!! God help nami use her cunning to the fullest- and her climatact too

Is it me or does Oda making luffy his Buu,  like Buu on DBZ his ulimate form is not of a huge monster, but his smaller younger self. Even luffy third gear really remind you the first time you see kid Buu, including the wait till the smoke is clear and everyone is surprised.

Except Luffy doesn't turn people into chocolate or eat them and gain their abilities.

Are we avoiding Sanji? I'm very curious as to what's going to happen to him and what the heck Califa's power is. She can turn people into glass dolls? I wonder how this is going to be reversed.

I really hope we see some combined Zoro/Usopp fighting. Maybe Chopper will show up at the very end of their battle and then they'll do some awesome finishing moves.

As for Nami's fight, I have total faith in her and know she's going to avenge Sanji. I loved her speech between Sanji in 403; it was very awesome and heartwarming. I think this is going to empower Nami and give her more motivation; thus giving her more strength.

We haven't seen much of the Franky fight which is kind of upsetting because I'm really interested in Franky. I really want him to join their crew because, I mean, he's friggin' sci-fi! Plus, his back-story is really sad and really makes me feel close to him. Iceburg too.

I'm hyped up about Luffy's gear 3. I love how silly it is, especially since I was expecting some monster-like evolution. I swear this series is just way to cool; even after so many fight scenes, they still make me squeal in pure excitement.

Edit: I accidentally edited your post instead of quoted it, fortunately I was able to save your post tho ^^ - GK

Good question... :s

Very likely; good prediction 'cause when Chopper finds the key, and unlocks them all, they'll all be able to do a bit of teamwork to get the battle over with.

He's pretty interesting no doubt... well, guess we'll see

See, I'm getting so worked up over the Sanji thing 'cause I'm worried. I really hope whatever happened to him can be reversed and I really want to see Nami kick Kalifa's ass! :amuse

That's what I'm sitting here waiting with so much anticipation for. I really love the teamwork battle scenes in One Piece, they're all superpowered and stuff. Well, they're more superpowered than normal... :p

I'm sure Luffy wished he could ;). But i think his gear 3 is just a step up from gear 2, so when he uses it he has the speed from gear 2 plus this insane raw power (it must be that) from MIDGET!!!

venicia777
March 19, 2006, 12:03 AM
ahh the translation- God bless all that will translate and scanlate- sing the song with me everyone. cant wait--- God bless all ...

well, the talk about luffy been like buu is quite intriguing- but the similarities end so fast. for instance buu small size is his original self- and he was actually weaker in power to the buu that fought vegetto. anyways, by just looking at the pictures- franky looked superb. i hope he joins the crew -and he can probably build a superb battleship for the mugiwara crew- but he may not- he already has his crew.

March 19, 2006, 03:47 PM
Franky looked good at this chapter...i wished for a while, he would join the crew...he looks like he enjoys fighting. i also liked his last words: "my bad,you got it right...all my punches were weak". it seems he hasnt showed his real potential yet, even at the fight at the top of sea-train

Watson
March 20, 2006, 04:27 AM
He couldn't of show his full potential since he was only on what was it...half a cola bottle? Franky would be a great addition as a whacky and sometimes sensible, so his a mixture of what most of the crew are. Also that he can come up with some excellent moves and not be able to use his strongest ability all the time makes him even more fitting.

Chopper ate a rumble ball this chapter so we know he didnt learn how to transform without them (yet). How longs it gonna be till we get a 405 predicition thread the chapters been out for like 3 days already!!!

We finally got another taste of Franky's power, of which Fukoruro was on the reciving end, while Kumadori got locked in... the fridge?




What might happen next, one wonders?

ewww...hair on delicious food... if Sanji gets better and sees the dude in the fridge he will royally freak!!! It may be yet another display of knife handling on his part if they continue to fight in the kitchen and use food to do so... also, what whould happen if frnky runs out of cola and instead uses hot sauce :tem FIRE FRANKY :p :patman

I just found the time to read this chapter.

Well...although we did see some fighting (espcially with Franky) I noticed that it was again fun dominated.
Althought it it forms OP's charme I have hoped to see some serious parts again. :s
But I have to admit that Chopper testing out the bottles and Franky's reaction were gorgeous. :rofl
Well...Franky surely surprised me at the end of the chapter. He owned the zipper guy so easily after getting his cola.
Although there is the possiblity that the CP9 will stand up again it seems that he had to take serious damage.

March 21, 2006, 12:01 PM

That was his intention at first, then he wanted to see what would happen if he gave him some tea since his hairstyle changed.

It was Kumadori who was locked in the fridge. :P

I think it will go to the Zoro v Ussop fight once more after he gives them the #2 key Nami pickpockted off Kalifa. Also Luffy will finally meet up with Lucci and thier will be a cliffhanger with them staring at each other before thier fight.

Predictions are nowaday a bit lame considering OP.
It's inevitable that we either see Usopp/Zorro or Franky/Chopper or Nami. And a bit of Luffy running around.
