Discuss the latest chapter of One Piece (scanlated by Null here). What did you think of this chapter? How did you feel when they wouldn't let Robin into the basement? Do you like the new character intorduced in the flashback, Hagwarl D. Saul? What about the previous version of CP9?

I personally liked this chapter. We're finally getting to learn more about Robin's past, which I have wanted to for a while. I personally have a feeling that Saul might play ban important part in Robin's past.

And well, what are your thoughts?

What did you think of this chapter? What do you think about Olivia? How about Aokiji's old look?

I am continuing to enjoy Robin's flashback. With the appearence of Olivia and the CP9 on the island, some real interesting things could happen next chapter. I'm looking forward to it.

Find the One Piece 396 goodies here (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=1593.msg19799#msg19799).

A most touching chapter. ;__;


Interesting to learn that Sauro was a marine, adds a nice twist to his character.

-- Title page --
Miss GoldenWeek's "Operation: Meets Baroque" vol. 29: "Infiltrating the Detention Center by Pretending to be Captured"

-- p. 2 --

Saul: OOOOO [howling in pain/rage]

-- p. 3 --

[the next part appears to be confused chatter over DenDenMushi, but I'm not all that sure]
Naval voices: What's going on?!!!
It's Vice-Admiral Saul!!!
Vice-Admiral Saul, who deserted along with Olvia, is attacking us!!!
Why the hell is he here?!!
We don't know!!!

Scholar: This island's had it!!!
Everything's going up in flames!!!

Other Scholar: Save the books!!!
We have to pass on this history!!!

-- p. 4 --

Scholar: Drop them from the window into the lake!!!
It's better than losing them by burning!!!
Hurry!!!

Robin: Sauro--!!! Stop it, already! You'll die!!!

Scholars: Get the books out of the library!!!
Save as many books as you can!
Save as many articles as you can!
So that the words of thousands of years of our predecessors...!!!
{ Will reach the future...}

-- p. 5 --
Saul: Robin!!!
You gotta get onto the rescue ship 'n' escape, right now!!!

Robin: ...!!

Saul: If you stay on this island,
You'll be done for!!!!

Robin: AAH!!!
...!!
haa... haa...

-- p. 6 --

Robin: MOMMY--!!!

Naval guy: Fire on Saul!!!

Saul: Robin!!!
What was yer ma's wish?!!!

Olvia: { Stay alive, Robin!!! }

People on ship: Get the rescue vessel underway!!!

Robin: ...!!
haa... haa...

People on ship: Wait!! Someone's arrived!!!

-- p. 7 --
Townspeople: It's the demon!!!
That demon girl's still on the island!!!

Brat: That's right! Get outta here, demon!!!

Adult: Hey! Don't say such stupid things!!

Glasses guy: Whoa, wait, I know her!!! That girl belongs to Olvia, who was all over the papers...
She's the criminal's daughter, isn't she?!!

Bug-eyed guy: If we let her on the ship, maybe we'll get lit into, too!!

Panicking guy: EH?!!

Scarface: Don't say that, moron!! She's just a kid!!! Hurry and pull her up!!

Navy guy: Get a rope down--
!!?

Townspeople: ...?!!

Robin: It's all right! I can climb up by myself!!

Random person/people: UWAAAAA!!! SHE'S A MONSTER!!!

Woman: KYAAAAA!!!

Man: DEMON!! DEMOOOON!!!

Robin: !!!

-- p. 8 --

Spandine: Oh!!!
I've found her--!!!
[over loudspeaker] Rescue vessel!!! Do not let that brat onboard!!!
She may be a runt, but she's an archaeologist!! She's marked as a target of our assault!!!

Other CP9 (?) / Navy: Director Spandine!!

Townspeople: ...Is-...!! Is that true?!!
...Look!!! If we let her on, we'll be in danger!!

Robin: [sobbing]...!!

Saul: Robin?!
CP9...
How could you say such a despicable thing...?!!
!

-- p. 9 --

Naval grunt: Director!!!
Vice-Admiral Saul is headed this way!!!

Spandine: Whoa!! So Vice-Admiral Saul was really on this island!!
And we didn't even need to inquire of Olvia!!
Fire!!! Fire!!! Attack!!!

Kuzan: ICE BLOCK...
PARTISAN (Guerrilla)!!!

Saul: ?!!

Robin: SAUL!!!

Spandine: Kuzan, sir!!!

Saul: ...! Kuzan!!!

-- p. 10 --

Kuzan: Oh my, oh my... to think that a Buster Call would be interrupted by a former Naval officer...
Quite an abrupt shift, isn't it...?

Saul: ...!!
Kuzan...!! How can you take pride in an attack like this?!!

Kuzan: ...

People (navy?): Retreat!!

Saul: Strange, ain't it?...!!!
I reckon you know it, too!!! This is being made into an "example"...!!!
That's why Ohara's being wiped out!!!

Kuzan: If it is for the sake of the world from this point forward, then I have no choice.
Actually, it isn't that the scholars broke the law...!!

-- p. 11 --

Kuzan: Things such as justice change their shape depending on the situation.
Therefore, I am not making an indictment of your "justice"...
Only, if you get in our way,
We will not let you be...!!!
!!?

Saul: Uwaa!!! The rescue ship blew up!!

Robin: W...w!! Why?!!!

Kuzan: An attack!!!
From a battleship...!!
From Vice-Admiral Sakazuki's ship!!!
...!! That damnable fool...!!

-- p. 12 --

Sakazuki: When you eliminate them, do so thoroughly...!!
Should there be even one scholar lurking aboard that ship...
then all these sacrifices will mean nothing...!!
"Evil" exists, so you must eradicate it!!!

Narration Box:
Naval Headquarters Vice-Admiral
SAKAZUKI
(Future Admiral "Akainu")

Robin: ...!!

Saul: Is this something that Justice would do?...!!
CAN YOU STICK OUT YOUR CHEST, EVEN NOW?!!!

Kuzan: I have no intention of crossing the line as that fool did!!!

Saul: We're gettin' outta here, Robin!!!
His strength ain't normal!!!

Robin: !!

-- p. 13 --

Navy types: Saul fled!!!
He's got one of the scholars with him..!!!

Kuzan: ICE TIME CAPSULE!!!

Saul: ...!!!
OOF!!!

Robin: Saul!!!

Saul: Guh...haa...
Robin... You gotta get away...

Robin: !?

-- p. 14 --

Saul: You gotta run, 's fast as you can!!!
haa...
If you stay on the island, you won't live...!!! Anyway... set out to sea on my raft!!

Robin: WHAT ABOUT YOU, SAUL?!!

Saul: I can't go any farther. I'm caught!!
Now, go!!!

Robin: NO!!
There's nobody for me out in the sea!!

Saul: haa...
Listen well, Robin...
haa...
Right now, you're alone, but...!!
Some day, I'm sure...
You'll run across your "nakama"...

Robin: Nakama...?

Saul: The sea's a big place...
Someday, I'm sure of it!!!
haa
Nakama who'll protect you will appear!!!

-- p. 15 --

Saul: HAVING BEEN BORN INTO THIS WORLD, THERE IS NO SUCH THING...
AS BEING ALL ALONE!!!!
Run, Robin!!!
Don't look back!!!
In painful times... remember what I taught you!!
You gotta laugh like this:

Robin: SAUL, LOOK OUT!!

Kuzan: ICE TIME...

Saul: Dereshishishishi

Robin: SAUL!!!

Saul: Dereshishi... In the sea, somewhere... I'm sure they'll be waiting for you.
GO FIND YOUR NAKAMA, ROBIN!!!!

Robin: WAAAAAAAH!!!

-- p. 16 --

Saul: { Live...
along with them!!! }

Kuzan: ...

Scholars: It's too late...
IT'S FALLING...!!!
THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE IS FALLING...!!!

Clover: { Is this, too... the history that people chose? }
...!!
{ FOOLISH PEOPLE...!! }

Olvia: { I'm sorry, Robin...
I wasn't even able to leave behind
any words for you as your mother... }

-- p. 17 --

Robin: haa...
haa...
Ah!

Kuzan: ...
Complete justice drives people mad over time...
I have decided to allow you to leave this island...
What, I wonder, will the "seed" that Saul protected grow into?...

Robin: !?

Kuzan: It's up to you, whom to bear a grudge against, but for now, be grateful that you just have your life...
Henceforth... you should always live in anonymity.
I have made lines of ice in the sea.
If your ship simply continues straight, it will reach land.
But remember this:
I am not your ally... if you are guilty of anything...
You will be the first "enemy" I come to capture.

Robin: ...My mom's on the island...

Kuzan: No one survived...

Robin: !!

Kuzan: If it is so painful you wish to die... you are free to do that, as well.

-- p. 18 --

Clover: { This is the world's greatest library.
Do you like books? }

Scholars: { Today is your birthday, Robin~~!!
Congratulations, Robin!!!
Congrats!!
There's cake! Cake!! }

Saul: { Be proud, Robin!!!
Ohara's a fine island!!! }

Olvia: { We can't just give up...
the future you'll live in!!! }

Saul: {You should laugh!! Laugh when it hurts!
It hurts, but if you laugh it'll seem silly...
Not like that!
Dereshishishishishi...}

Robin: ...dereshi...

-- p. 19 --

Robin: Dereshi!!
Dereshi!!!
dereshi... *koff*...
[whimper]
...dereshishishi...!!
...!!!
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!

Saul: { In the sea, somewhere... I'm sure they'll be waiting for you.
GO FIND YOUR NAKAMA, ROBIN!!!! }

[Robin continues to wail.]

I'm a bit annoyed now. I thought Naruto will be enough. Now I'm itching to get the OP chapter.

Summary was accurate.

Franky torches the Pluton blueprints.

and Luffy throws them all onto the Rocket Train as it is running through the building and ramping off the busted drawbridge, heading STRAIGHT for ledge the others were on.

Franky: Looks like my little family owes you a favor...
Well, as their leader, I guess that means the great Franky is gonna be one hell of a super asset in this fight!!!

Just read this chapter. Definitely heart-breaking how Robin had to go of her mother and Ohara got blown up. The moment where Saul gets hit in the head by the cannonball, I thought it was all over for him. These giants have some endurance...

I agree it was an interesting twist as to how Saul was a marine captain.

I haven't read any further, just waiting on scanlations for the next few chapters right now.

Gold Knight
February 19, 2006, 11:15 PM
Ah! Just read this chapter. I like how it's finally all coming together for Robin's past, it's been quite a while since she was introduced to the story. The mystery is starting to lift...

Now we know why Robin was so terrified when she saw Admiral Aokiji too. But it looks like Aokiji must be the decent one out of the three Supreme Admirals. Admiral Akainu looks like he'll be a thorn for Luffy's crew sometime in the near future.

Sad to see Saul go out that way - I keep thinking, though, the fire may have heated him enough that he could have regained consciousness and dove into the ocean. It just seems like characters really aren't killed that often in One Piece unless they're characters from waaaay back in the past (ie. Karugara and Norland)

Gold Knight
February 19, 2006, 11:35 PM
Very cool climax but I think everybody was expecting Robin to finally confess she wanted to live, otherwise this would have been one pretty fruitless mission.

Liked the moment Usopp burnt the flag too. But I'm somewhat surprised CP9 let Robin actually respond to Luffy. If they had just shut her up, their morale wouldn't have been so boosted - but then again, just seeing Robin not being allowed to respond probably would have driven them to attack anyway.

Thanks for posting the scanlation links here guys. You're awesome, I thought I was going to have to wait on Null to scanlate these chapters.

Gold Knight
February 20, 2006, 12:08 AM
Very cool chapter. Finally, the grand battle is about to break out.

It's been a long time coming - this storyarc started in volume 34 and we're on volume 42 now. Yeesh.

I also enjoyed Franky's speech, but I still find it weird that he ended up being an ally after the skirmish Usopp had with the Frankie Family waaaay back in Chapter 328 or thereabouts. I'm glad that Luffy didn't forget that in this chapter. I certainly hope Franky doesn't end up being the "new carpenter" for Luffy's crew ( I'm still hoping for Paulie, he's cool.)

venicia777
February 21, 2006, 01:24 PM
yeah!!! i like the Aokiji. For soo long we were all led to believe that Robin actually did defeat all the marines at such a young age with her ability during buster call(of course the buster call info came later).
Not knowing she was aided in no small way by saul and Aokiji. These guys kinda remind me of Smoker Taicho

when will we get an uploaded scanlation for download- ooh my God!!! its taking soo long.

i concur on the part about making robin speak. but i didnt sweat over it- it seems such is the lore in anime. you see soo much talking during fights- explanations etc etc that at times it doesnt seem real at all. i think that is the only way to explain what is going on- techniques, actions etc etc.

anyways, when can sombody please upload a scanlated for download?
