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
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:
Chimney: We made it!
Kokoro (thinking): Sure brings back memories...
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?
Marine Guy: Run for it!
Spandam: They're here...
Spandam: THEY'RE HERE!!!
Spandam: Dammit! C'mere you!
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: 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!
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!
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.
Luffy: There's some stairs leading up.
Luffy: Let's hurry up and get to Robin.
Fukurou: Hold up!
Luffy: What's that?
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.
Fukurou: Oh, and the director's with them too.
Fukurou: Of course, I won't tell you how to get there.
Fukurou: We CP9 have been ordered to eliminate you.
Fukurou: If you don't take us out,
Fukurou: You can't save Nico Robin.
Fukurou: Take a look at this.
Luffy: A key?!
Fukurou: This key is for the seastone handcuffs
Fukurou: that Nico Robin is currently wearing.
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 @#%@?!
Fukurou: It could be a fake..
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...
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: Get back here!
Zoro: YOU get back here!
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!
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)
Zoro: Losing is a waste of time.
Zoro: This is it! Win at all costs!
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!
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: I am the rumor-loving "Silent Fukurou!"
Fukurou: You want the key don't you?
Franky: Crap! I'm not ready for this yet!
Sogeking: Empty, empty, empty!
Sogeking: All these rooms are empty!
Sogeking (thinking): Empty rooms aren't so bad...
Sogeking: Fear me!
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
Kumadori: Yoyoi! Yoi yoi!!
Kumadori: Cursed pirate! There you are!
Kumadori: Aiya! Hold..
Kumadori: Hold it right theeeere!!!
