[Insert text: Amidst the ruins...]
[Box: Grand Line; Kuraigana Island: Ruins of the Shikkearu Kingdom]
Zoru: I'm begging you... // Teach me... // ...the way of the sword!!!
Mihawk: ...............!! // .........I am disappointed in you, Roronoa... // You mean to ask for teachings from your enemy...? // Know your shame.

3
Mihawk: Leave this place. I have no further interest in you...
Zoro: ...........................
Mihawk: It would seem that the expectations I held of you were too high... // ...Must you continue...? It pains me to watch.
Zoro: .........I want to become strong...!!!
Mihawk: ...Defeated by those baboons, unable even to escape to sea... / ...and after all that, you have the nerve to come crawling back here. I have nothing to teach to the likes of you...
Zoro: The baboons, I have defeated......!!!
Mihawk: ?! // (...He did what?!!)
Zoro: Yours is the only head I have yet to take.

4
Zoro: ...But I am not fool enough to believe... // ...that I have any hope of defeating you here and now...!!
Mihawk: ...............!! // I do not understand... If you still consider me an enemy... then why would you prostrate yourself before me and ask for my teachings...?!! / What purpose does this serve?!!
Zoro: So that I may surpass you...!!!
Mihawk: ! // Haha...
Zoro: .........
Mihawk: .........Wahahahahahahahah...! / You ask me to raise the swordsman who will take my life by my own hands?! / You are a strange one for sure...!!! ...Hahahah!! // ......Hmph... A ridiculous notion. Your actions are nonetheless quite unsightly... / .........It would seem that you have found a greater cause than your own ambition.
Zoro: !!

5
Mihawk: Ghost-girl! / Tend to his wounds!
Perona: Ahh!! Don't you dare order me around!!
Mihawk: We can begin training only once your wounds are healed.
Zoro: !!
Mihawk: (Such a clumsy man... Men like you will only ever choose to abandon their pride when it is for the sake of another.) // .........
Perona: "3D2Y"? / You're right... there is a tattoo like that on his shoulder...
Zoro: My crew and I had agreed to meet up in a certain location after three days... / Of course, you know how that turned out...
Perona: So the "3D" represents those "three days"? // But it's been crossed out, and then it says "2Y"...
Zoro: In other words...
Perona: "Two years"...!
Zoro: We're to meet up not after three days, but in two years' time...!! / All the rest was just a bluff to distract the world from the real message... / ...A message meant for us alone. // ...And this is Luffy's decision. // There's no point rushing things; we're not ready to take on the New World right now......!!! // So we stand firm and build our strength. And once we're done, that's when we meet up again!!!

6-7
Zoro: In two years' time!!! // At the Shabondy Archipelago!!!

8
[Box: A few days ago, upon the Calm Belt]
Luffy: Jimbei... Thanks so much... // ...for everything!!
Jimbei: No need for that... It is I who should be thanking you...!! // Back in Impel Down, I asked you to bring me to a certain death... // ...only to ultimately survive, however shamefully... / Yet I feel sure that the day will come when I can lend you my strength once more. // ...At any rate... // Two years from now... let us meet again, on Fishman Island!! / I will be looking forward to the day when you and your crew come to call!!
Luffy: Yeah!!!

9
[Box: The Calm Belt: An island northwest of the Isle of Women, "Luscaina"]
Rayleigh: ...This island is exactly what we need......!! / Known as the "Forty-Eight Seasons"... it is a harsh land where the season changes with each week that goes by.
Hancock: Luffy!! I swear... each and every day, I will visit this island... / ...to bring you new provisions from the Isle of Women!!
Luffy: Whoaaa...!! You mean that, Hancock?!! // Can you bring me some of that famous Gorgon-what's-it-called stuff, then?!! It was really tasty...!
Hancock: B... But of course!! I will bring anything and everything that you desire!! / And that was the tenth time you have called me by name...!♡ I... Is this what they call "engagement"...?!
Kuja: [aside]aaahhh~~~! / Hebihime-sama~~~!♡[/aside]
Nyon: It is nyot!! / And why are you moving further and further away?
Rayleigh: Hancock, we cannot have you spoiling the boy...!! // Whilst Luffy-kun's training is underway, none of the women are to enter this place.
Hancock: And what right have you to decide such things, Rayleigh?!!!
Rayleigh: For provisions, we have the mountains, the forests, the rivers and ocean!! // We will not go hungry!! How can you expect any pirate to be successful without such basic survival skills?! This is for Luffy-kun's own sake!!!
Hancock: For Luffy......?!♡ Then I will be strong!♡ / But Rayleigh, do you truly appreciate how dangerous this island is?!! / If anything were to happen......!!
Rayleigh: If nothing were to happen, this training would be meaningless... / If you are worried, then pray for him.

10-11
Rayleigh: Now, then...... we are the only two human beings left on this entire island. Feast your eyes upon the glories of nature!! / They say that long ago, a nation stood here... // But all of its people perished in the struggle for survival... // This is a perilous land, fraught with natural dangers.........!!!
Luffy: I smell adventure...!!!
Rayleigh: Why, this island is home to a veritable multitude of terrible beasts.........!! / More than you could hope to count. // Many of them are too powerful for you to defeat in your current state... I would say... / Yes, five hundred or more. If you do not train hard, you will be unable to sleep safely at night...!
Luffy: How are you figuring out all this stuff?
Rayleigh: How indeed...! It is this very power that you must learn to master......... // The power known as "Haki"!!!
Luffy: ?!

12
Luffy: Look!! Behind you!! It's huge!! Old man Rayleigh...!!!
Elephant: RGHOOOOHHH!!
Rayleigh: Listen closely, Luffy-kun... "Haki" is a power... / ...that exists within every single human being. "Presence"... "Spirit"... "Aura"... // It is no different from these basic concepts with which anyone should be familiar. // However, the vast majority of people go their whole lives without ever noticing they possess it...
Luffy: An elephant?! It's gigantic!!
Elephant: RGHOOOHH!!!
Rayleigh: ...or else try as they might, never succeed in making use of it. // To feel no doubts... that is true strength!!! // Observe carefully......... / Haki can generally be divided into two main shades.
Luffy: Watch out!!!
Rayleigh: Worry not... the elephant is swinging its trunk at my head from the right...
Luffy: Huh...?

13
Rayleigh: The power to feel another's "presence" to an elevated degree... / This is "Observation Haki"!! // Master it, and you will be able to perceive enemies who lurk hidden out of sight... / To grasp their numbers, and even to read what they are attempting to do in the next moment.
Luffy: Ahh...!
Flashback!Sandersonia: A kick with the left leg...
Flashback!Luffy: Huh?!
Flashback!Enel: Mantra.
Flashback!Luffy: !!!
Rayleigh: In the sky isles of Skypiea... / ...this ability is known as "Mantra". // Next, we have "Armament Haki". This shade...
Luffy: Aahh...!
Rayleigh: ...is something like wearing an invisible suit of armour...
Elephant: RGOHH!! // RGHOOOHHHHHH!!
Rayleigh: .........

14
Elephant: ?!! // RGOHH?!!
Luffy: I've...... // ...seen that before...!!
Elephant: RGHOOOHHHHH?!!
Flashback!Sentoumaru: Ashigara Dokkoi!!!
Flashback!Marigold: Hahh!!
Elephant: RGOOOHH!!!
Rayleigh: Naturally, stronger armour also results in more powerful attacks.
Luffy: Ahh!!! // It hurts...!! Even though I'm made of rubber!! It actually hurts!!
Rayleigh: This is the ability's most important use.

15
Rayleigh: When facing a Devil Fruit user, other than taking advantage of their individual weaknesses... / ...this "Armament Haki" is the sole method of effectively combating their abilities...!! // With it, even the fluid bodies of the near-invincible Logia Fruit users... / ...can be forced into solidity...!!!
Luffy: So this is why you could touch Kizaru...! / Then I'd be able to attack old Smokey from the Marines... / ...or even on Aokiji, right?
Rayleigh: ......... // Have you ever witnessed the bowmanship of the Kuja tribe? / This power can even be extended to the weapons one wields.
Luffy: ......Yeah. I thought those arrows were made of steel!
Rayleigh: "Observation" and "Armament". These are the two shades of Haki.
Elephant: RHOOOOGHHHH!!!
Rayleigh: ...However, there are a few scant people in the world who are able to use one more shade of Haki...

16-17
Rayleigh: !!!
Luffy: ........................!!!
Rayleigh: This is the ability to overpower the opponent's will... It is called "Sovereign Haki"...!! / It can often be found in the type of people who make a name for themselves on a global scale. / However, whilst it can be brought under control, the Sovereign Haki is unique in that it cannot be trained. // It is the user's very spirit manifest...!! It can only be strengthened by the individual's personal growth.
Luffy: That's what you used back in the auction house...!
Rayleigh: You have experienced it for yourself. I know that your potential for the Sovereign Haki has already been awakened. / Until you have brought it under control, you must avoid overusing it at all costs. / Otherwise, you will find yourself overpowering even those innocent bystanders around you...!!

18
Rayleigh: Is something the matter.........?
Luffy: .........Wow...... // So the crew of the Pirate King... can defeat monsters like this... / ...without even lifting a finger...
Rayleigh: ...Hahahah! Have I earned a little respect?
Luffy: Yeah. // ...But, this Haki stuff... / I've seen it before, in all sorts of places...
Rayleigh: I do not doubt it... Yet mastering it will not be a simple task......... // Ordinarily, it would take longer... but your natural talent for this is strong. I will do what I can in these two years... / ...to ground you in at least the basics... / ...of Observation, Armament, and even the Sovereign Haki.
Luffy: Right.
Rayleigh: ...However, most people have a tendency to develop inequally, favouring one shade over the others based on their own strengths and weaknesses. / You should determine where your strengths lie, and expand upon them. / Gain skill in all three shades, and your abilities will be more versatile.
Luffy: Uh-huh!! Got it.

19
Rayleigh: Now, then... when it comes to training... / I will not be an easy master, Luffy...!!
Luffy: Yeah!! That's what I like to hear!!! / ...Ahh... / Hang on a second. // ...The Pirate "Straw Hat Luffy"...... // ...is gonna have to take a bit of a break. // You said this is the one safe spot on the island, right...?
Rayleigh: That is correct.
Luffy: I'll leave this, too...
Rayleigh: Hurry it up!! It's time we got started!!
Luffy: All right!! Let's get to it, old man!!
Rayleigh: ...That's no good. I want to hear an "I'm counting on you, Rayleigh-san". Or perhaps "Rayleigh-sensei". / ......Or "Master"?
Luffy: I'm counting on you from now on, Rayleigh!!!
Rayleigh: ......Well... That will do...
