Chapter 543: Straw Hat and Blackbeard
Cover story no. 12 / Sanji, don't lose your cool in Kamabakka!
[[Note: I think it's actually cover story 12 as opposed to 12-shot cover story. I'm confused, because this should be the 11th, with the CP9 one being the 10th. Someone please clarify this one for me.]]
Vol. 1: Adventure on the Island with No Exit
The underwater prison in chaos!!
Level 1 / Crimson Hell
Guards: Raise the drawbridge!! We mustn't let them pass!!
There's only five of them!! We can take them!!
They're traitors!! Blackbeard has clearly switched sides!!
Shiryuu: Well, that's what pirates're all about...
Guard: H... Head Gaoler Shiryuu!!!
Shiryuu: So I'm up against five, huh...
Guard: When were you released, sir?!
Blackbeard: Who's that? Sure looks like he could be trouble...
Is he Magellan?!
Shiryuu: You're Marshall D. Teach... Blackbeard, am I right?
Blackbeard: Zehahahaha!! Ya sure are!! And who might you be?
4. - 5.
Level 4 Blazing Hell
Guards: It's no use!! If even the Demon Guards were defeated, there's no way we can stop them now!!
Prisoners: Come on!!! We're almost at the door to Level 3!!
Let's move!! There's nothing to be afraid of anymore!!
Guards: Damn it!! Their numbers are increasing!!
They... They've become impossible to stop!!!
Prisoners: It's the Chief Guard, Sady!!
Who cares, just push 'er aside!!!
Sady: Silence!! You shall address me as Sady-chan!!

8. - 9.
Hannyabal: You shall not pass!!! [[Note: Sorry for the obvious Gandalf reference.]]
Luffy: Who's that guy?
He's opening the door!
Inazuma: It's Hannyabal!! He's the Vice Warden here!!
Hannyabal: Behold!! The stairwell to Level 3 is secured by a bazooka squad of a thousand members, all equipped with Prison Cannonballs!!
You will not leave this place alive!!!
Guards: Whoa!!! The Vice Warden brought his halberd, Kessui!! He's serious!!! [[Note: Kessui means Blood Sucker]]
We can count on him now!! He's real strong!!!

Unprecedented intruder, Straw Hat!!

Level 4 / In front of the jumbo elevator
Guards: Chief Warden Magellan!! Thank God you've arrived!!

Hannyabal: I'm not done yet!!
14. - 15.
Guard: V... Vice Warden Hannyabal!!
Please don't get up... You'll die!!!
Hannyabal: How dare you... Your only accomplishment is reaching infamy in the outside world... As a pirate, and now a rebel!!!
You will save your brother? That is very touching coming from the scum of society!! /
Common people lose their loved ones day after day and are
so terrified that they cannot sleep /
Just because men like you are out at sea!!!
This is the Fortress Of Hell, built for the sole purpose of locking up villains so that even the frailest can feel safe out there!!
If it were to collapse, this world would become one ruled by fear!! I will not let you take a single step further!!
Guard: Vice Warden... !!!
Luffy: Ace's life is real important to me!! So out of my way!!

Jimbei: Teach!!! What are you doing here?!
Or should I call you Blackbeard?
Blackbeard: Jimbei. ... Haha. Hey, hey, don't get so worked up, will ya?
Oh yeah, you n' Ace were close, huh... But you're barkin' up the wrong tree if you're blamin' me fer what happened.
18. - 19.
Flashback Ace: I'm looking for a guy who did something real nasty...
He goes by the name of Blackbeard these days.
Flashback Teach: People's dreams /
Flashback Nyon: News is that a pirate named Blackbeard managed to capture Fire Fist Ace /
And was thus invited to become a Shichibukai...
Luffy: You're Blackbeard?!
Blackbeard: ... Huh? Oh, seems I forgot to introduce myself back then.
Zehahaha!!! Long time no see, Straw Hat!! I was suprised myself when I learned you n' my commander, Ace, 're brothers!!
Heh... You okay with wastin' yer time here? Your brother's execution's 'bout ta start... Zehahaha!!!
