Guidelines For Using My Translations
[TN: After returning from Japan, completing a hellish assignment (including losing about two hundred words in a crash and having to retype them from scratch), taking a breather and getting somewhat addicted to Tales of VS, I'm finally back and getting down to work on my backlog! Installment 3: two chapters of One Piece!]

Kizaru: Yasakani no Magatama.
[TN: Ehm, well, the furigana actually read "Yasakata no Magatama", but I'm going to assume that's a typo, since the kanji are actually read "Yasakani no Magatama" - the jewel that makes up the final third of the Imperial Regalia of Japan, the other two of which (the Kusanagi blade and the mirror Yata no Kagami) have previously been used by Kizaru as techniques]
People: ?!! // It's Kizaru~~~~~~~~!!!
Whitebeard: Dear, dear... // That's a little bright...
