One Piece 594
Chapter 594: Message
[Insert text: The highest authorities......]
Gorousei: ...It's just one thing after another with this Straw Hat Luffy boy. ...It seems oddly appropriate that he is Garp's grandson... // What manner of connection does the boy have with Rayleigh......? / I hardly expect him to come out into the open after all this time... // And Jimbei too has finally decided to oppose us... When we inducted him into the Shichibukai, // it held the significance of representing interracial harmony... His loss will be sorely felt. // The balance between the Three Great Powers has fallen into a terrible state. / How will we go about filling the three empty seats in the Shichibukai? // We should first wait to see how the New World responds. / The lay of power amongst the pirates, too, should be undergoing change. // We must select only those individuals with great influence.
[Box: Red Line, Holy Land of Mariejoa: The Room of the Gorousei]
Gorousei: .................. // Blackbeard has already begun to take action in the New World... / ...and one of those rookies exceeding a hundred million in bounty has already fallen prey to him. // He is all too familiar with the territory that Whitebeard controlled. // Amongst those pirates striving to fill the vacant seat in the Yonkou... / ...he has a clear head start. There is, after all, no record of any man before him successfully consuming two Devil's Fruits. // If anybody can put a stop to his advance, it would have to be the Yonkou themselves... // ...or else Marco the Phoenix and the other remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates. // It is always those with the D who cause such trouble... Just like Portgas... // It would seem that the name has become rather too exposed at this point...
[Box: Elsewhere in the Holy Land of Mariejoa]
Kong: I attempted to stop him... // ...but Garp has for all intents and purposes abandoned his position.
Kong: However, his official rank will remain unchanged. / He will remain in the military.
[Box: World Government / Supreme Military Commander / Kong]
Kong: For the purpose of training young Marine soldiers. // If you mean to forfeit your post as Fleet Admiral...
Kong: ...then I ask that you at least do the same. // Sengoku.
Sengoku: ...Yes, I think I will accept your proposition. / That does not sound like a bad way to spend my remaining years...
Kong: .........So, the two men who have led the Marines from the front lines since Roger's age... / ...will be retiring from active duty... This is most serious news. // There are still many pirates out there worthy of being called "legendary"... / ...not least the escaped prisoners from Level Six of Impel Down.
Sengoku: The greatest of them all was Newgate... / With this Pirate Age on the verge of rebirth... // ...is this any time to have old men running the Marines? / Justice is a system of values... it cannot overcome the gap of generations... // More importantly, Kong-san... for my successor as Fleet Admiral... / I would like to nominate Aokiji.
[Box: Grand Line, Marinford: Marine Headquarters]
Aokiji: So he was alive~~! Impressive. // Have you heard the news? Straw Hat is up to his antics again.
Aokiji: He certainly hasn't wasted any time... / Sixteen chimes?! Is this some kind of message?!
Smoker: Who can say...? More importantly... / What about my reassignment request...?
Aokiji: ......Well, I will see what I can negotiate with Sengoku-san, but... are you serious? / G5 isn't the kind of place you can just request to be assigned to... it's got a mountain of problems to deal with... // The Fifth Grand Line Marine Outpost...... In other words... / ...You're asking to be sent to the New World...
Smoker: I prefer to keep my target close at hand.
[Box: Marine Headquarters: Medical Centre]
Doctor: The power known as "Haki"... this is quite clearly one of its manifestations. // It must have awakened as a result of the shock you experienced on the battlefield... / Ordinarily, the ability can only be brought out by lengthy periods of training...
Coby: Haki......?! This is...?!
Doctor: All Marines of Vice-Admiral class and above are able to make use of this ability.
Coby: I can feel presence of the people around me so strongly... it's all too much...
Doctor: The two of you are Garp's apprentices, yes? He should be able to teach you!
Helmeppo: Hey, Doctor!! Do you think I'll be able to achieve the same thing?! // Dammit...!! It's like you're suddenly a huge step ahead of me... it pisses me off!!
Coby: I don't understand any of this either!!
[Box: Conference Hall]
Marines: It is utterly inexplicable!! // This man, who was revealed over the course of the Ultimate War to be the adoptive brother of Portgas D Ace, the son of Dragon the Revolutionary... / ...and what is more, the grandson of our very own Vice-Admiral Garp... // The pirate, Monkey D Luffy!!! // His whereabouts were until recently unknown, but now it seems that not only is he alive......... / ...but he has reappeared within the bounds of Marine Headquarters itself!!! // As for his accomplices in this latest endeavour... firstly, we have the traitor... / ...former Shichibukai, "Knight of the Sea" Jimbei!!!
Marines: Furthermore, he seems to be working with the former first mate of the Pirate King's crew!!! // "Dark King" Silvers Rayleigh!!! // Marinford is currently populated with labourers working to restore the town itself... / ...ordinary citizens who have gathered from across the globe to witness the aftermath, and hordes of reporters from various nations. // All in all, there are great numbers of civilians coming and going... and meanwhile, out at sea... / ...as a result of Whitebeard's death, pirates have begun instigating one incident after the next! // The vast majority of available Marine forces are of necessity away from Headquarters... / ...and security is at an all-time low... // As if to take advantage of the situation, these three have suddenly appeared at Headquarters, stolen a battleship... / ...and used that ship to sail a full circle around Marineford, in what is known to men of the ocean as the "Rite of Burial"!!!
Marines: Monkey D Luffy then proceeded to compound this audacity by entering the plaza alone... / ...and upon reaching the "Ox Bell" on its westernmost edge, he sounded it a full sixteen times......!! // And finally, standing before the war scars that are still evident in the plaza... / ...he scattered flowers thereupon, and engaged in a flagrant moment of "silent prayer"...!!! // The reporters present, naturally, snapped the whole scene up eagerly. And as such... // This article has already been distributed around the entire world! / Including the fact that we allowed him to slip right through our fingers...!! This is a disgrace!! // At a glance, of course... this could be seen as a form of memorial service for his brother, Whitebeard, and the others who have lost their lives in the war... // This would explain the silent prayer and the Rite of Burial, but as for the Sixteen Chimes... proper observance of a tragic event involves only two chimes!! // To sound that bell sixteen full times can only serve as a declaration of war!!
[Box: The New World]
Kidd: "Straw Hat Luffy Lives"... // "Sixteen Chimes to the New Age at Marineford"... What is this "Ox Bell", anyway?
Killer: The Ox Bell is a sacred bell... / ...situated upon the Ox Royce, a famed battleship from ancient times. // At the end and the beginning of each year... the bell is sounded eight times to see out the old year, and eight times to see in the new. / As such, this Marine tradition involves sounding the bell sixteen times in full. // That is the meaning of the Sixteen Chimes... however, it is quite evidently out of season. / In other words... this sounding of the Sixteen Chimes can be interpreted as a tribute to the ending of one age, and the beginning of a new.
Kidd: The end of Whitebeard's age... // ...and he's trying to say "I'll create the new age myself" or something, is he...?
Crewmate: I hardly think he would go to the trouble... / ...of returning to the place where he lost his brother, wilfully reopening his own fresh wounds, unless he had a grand purpose of that nature.
Kidd: Hahahahah...!! Man, that kid gets on my nerves. // Okay, so after what happened in the war, he's clearly made himself stand out from the rest of us rookies. // But I'm not fool enough to let him hold on to that advantage for too long.
Kidd: To be frank, I'd expected more of the New World... what's the deal with this bunch of cowards?
Pirates: Please, forgive us! We're on our way out of this ocean right now! / Just let us return to Paradise alive!!!
Kidd: "Paradise"? // You mean, like, back to your families...?
Kidd: It's do or die out here!!! If you don't have that kind of resolve... // ...then you shouldn't have come here in the first place!!!
[Box: The New World]
Crew: Father......!!! // The ship!! It seems to have started floating above the ocean surface!!
Capone: What?!! // What are you talking about?! Don't be ridiculous!! Just sail the ship properly!!!
Crew: Father!! There's something falling down from the sky......... // No... we're the ones being sucked towards it!!!
[Box: Grand Line... upon the waves...]
Luffy: I'm real sorry about making you guys go all this way...
Kuja: Oh, that's fine! We're used to long voyages!
Luffy: What're you all doing down there?
Kuja: Well, since Hebihime-sama got overexcited and collapsed just now... // We're keeping watch to make sure that you keep getting plenty of rest! / It's Hebihime-sama's orders!
Luffy: D'you think they'll all get my message.........?
Rayleigh: If they read the article, then they'll understand... / The fact that it's quite unlike you is in itself the key. // You did have one companion who didn't seem particularly quick on the uptake... but I'm sure he'll figure it out. // Though it may be just a feeling... I have faith that your companions will understand you perfectly.
[Banner: Grand Line: among the clouds]
Chopper: Ahhhh~~~~~~!! // Of course... I get it!! // Luffy!!! I got it!! // Of course... of course!!
[Banner: East Blue: atop a giant bridge]
Revolutionaries: Huh?! What is it, Robin-san?
Sanji: I see... Luffy...
Ivankov: Excuse me?
[Banner: Kamabakka Kingdom]
[Banner: Shikkearu Ruins]
Perona: Hey!! Are you not done yet?! My arms are getting tired!!
Zoro: Just a minute...!! There's something here... // Luffy isn't the sort of guy to do this kind of thing... If Rayleigh's with him, then this must've been his idea... There's got to be something more to it...!!
[Banner: Boin Archipelago]
Heraclesun: What is it nowun?! Usoppun...!!
Usopp: ......I get it!! I get it, Luffy!!!
Haredas: Hey, little girlie! They're still after you!
Nami: I can't believe this... doesn't he have any consideration for others?!!
[Banner: Sky Island Weatheria]
Franky: I see...
[Banner: Future Land Balgimoa]
[Banner: Tena Gena Kingdom]
Brooke: Ahhh, so that's it!!!
Tenaga: It's the one you've all been waiting for, folks!! / Feast your eyes on this unbelievable moving skeleton!!!
[Box: The ever-stormy New World]
Hawkins: My apologies. Could you say that one more time? // I didn't quite hear.
Brownbeard: The name's Brownbeard!! The one and only Pirate Brownbeard, with a bounty of over 80,000,000 Beli!!! You'd better remember that name!! And this... is my territory!!!
Hawkins: I see. It was such a ridiculous name, I thought I must have misheard. / Let me tell you two things. Firstly, I detest jokes.
Hawkins: And secondly... Today... // ...I see the mark of death upon you.
[Box: All those proud men who have set foot even once into the New World...]
Urouge: Are you serious? The Log Pose is actually... / ...pointing to that island......?!!! // Don't be ridiculous!!! How are we supposed to land there?!! // It's covered in lightning...!!!
[Box: ...refer to the first half of the Grand Line by the same name.]
Crew: High Priest!! Somebody's coming this way!!
Urouge: ?! // Who is it...?!!
[Box: "That ocean," they say, "was a Paradise..."]
OldMerchant: Care to buy an umbrella?
Urouge: An umbrella?!!
