    Pirate's Summit

    Ace: The next time we meet will be at pirate's summit.

    Do you guys have any kind of theories about what and where will be this pirate's summit.

    in anime there is one additional line.

    at the end ace also says

    "come to the top luffy"

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    The person who originally translated that line as "Pirate's Summit" now regrets it, because fans have assumed that it refers to an actual location, rather then simply being a way of telling Luffy to become a powerful pirate. With the revelation of the piece of paper Ace gave Luffy as a Vivre Card, it can be assumed that the "Pirate's Summit" Ace was talking about was the New World, the place where the really powerful pirates are.

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    Well, given by Luffys reaction I think that is meant to Luffy become a powerful pirate. If its a location, like the new world then Luffy wouldn't have this kind of reaction. Since Luffy has no idea about the grand line, he couldn't have known what location Ace is talking about, so I would expect from Luffs a "?" face.

    But tbh I've never thought about it until today and I actually don't care :P

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    I originally interpreted summit as a meeting, like a UN summit council. That paper was like his ticket in the door.
    The Grain Pirates. Scourge of Spelt, Corsairs of Corn, Rogues of Rye, Buccaneers of Barley, the Freebooters of the Farmland.
    What reason is there to stop a man from sailing?

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    I always read it as a metaphorical place, but I can see why others may literally confuse it with a place of interest. The summit is the top, so for someone to reach the top they have to be the best.

    Once again Imitorar shows his experience (and serious long-time addiction to One Piece)

    Sorry readers: taking a break from my One Piece reviews. Though I love doing them, One Piece Reviews are actually not near the top of my to-do list. Perhaps one day I'll return and do them properly.

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    this was translated by Stephen.
    and his signature on alrong park was:

    Quote Quote:
    Stephen's Law: No matter how many times it is (correctly) stated in a discussion that Ace's words to Luffy about meeting at the "summit" are nothing more than an unintentionally misleading way of saying "see you at the top," someone will state their (incorrect) theories about how there is a mystical Pirate Convention in which pirates from around the world get together to drink some grog, play pirate games and debate over who would win in a fight.
    so we can safely assume that it means nothing more than "see you at the top".
    but from the current events (ID arc) i dont think luffy is at top yet but he'll still meet ace.

    This has been brought up before. I'm sure of it.

    This isn't "pirates of the Caribbean" people! (regardless of similarities)

    Why are you answering this thread again where there are 5 posts before yours (some dating months back) which say exactly the same thing?

    And @kkck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OugE4...eature=related

    Not like I check the dates obsessively.

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    HAHA that was hilarious, it really cracked me up... Luffy saying "If I wasnt this probably would never work" is somehow so true... And I couldnt hold my laughter when zoro proposed to nami....

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    Maybe the confusion is easier for non english native, since we use summit in the conference meaning more often

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    Er, the issue this thread was meant to discuss seems to have been resolved, and this thread seems to have degenerated into YouTube links and pop culture references, so I think that it's time for this thread to go to the Blank Century. If anyone would like to post something in this thread that's actually on-topic, feel free to do it in there, the thread will be moved back into the main Tree of Knowledge if it gets posted in while in the Davy Back Fight.

    Re: Pirate's Summit

    yea It would be really dumb for a whole bunch of pirates to gather up in one place. That would be a Field day For the marines
    Horrendous are the days that I ravage these seas!

    One Piece is the most epic manga out, I kid you not.
