One Piece 698
Chapter 698: Doflamingo Appears
Caribou's Snickerings in the New World
Vol 20: To The Port
[Insert text: What have the G-5 Marines realised...?!]
People: The gas didn't work at all?! // These protective suits were designed by Doctor Vegapunk. // Turns out, even Caesar wasn't able to create a gas that could overcome their defences! // But of course, Caesar knew this ahead of time. // So before releasing the gas, he told his subordinates to take off the suits. / "Those won't do you any good, so leave them behind and focus on running," he said! // And that's why all his subordinates ended up as statues, huh? // Hey, hurry it up!! // The guys back inside are all stuck in a pseudo-dead state, with their whole bodies paralysed! They're not safe yet! // Yeah, but... // Thanks to that paralysis, it takes half a day before the poison can work its way into their systems and kill them...!! We've gotta find them all and break those shells!!
Brownbeard: Wohoh! I can't believe you're granting us permission to go back in there, too... I don't know how to thank you enough!! // I'll never forget your name...!! / Thanks to you, I can save the lives of my crew...!! We'll be back so you can arrest us, I promise!!
Smoker: This is the only way out, at any rate. Now get moving. // Still, I don't know... What are we meant to do with these prisoners...? // Are they pirates?
Marines: I don't know... / They're creepy, that's for sure...
Marines: Hm? / Ahh!! // Huh?! Are those heads flying this way?!! // Ehh?! Don't be ridiculous! // ?! // Th... // They really are...
Marines: FLYING HEADS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!
Smoker: ! // That's...!!
Marines: D... // DOFLAMINGO~~~~~?!!
Marines: Wh... // Why is he here?! // Ahh... // ?!!
Marines: ......!!! // Sovereign Haki...!!! // What the hell are you doing?!!
Doflamingo: Nobody here, eh...? // No ship, either...
Marines: Why is a Shichibukai attacking the Marines?!
Doflamingo: Those pirates were here...they can't have been gone long.
Doflamingo: Where did they go......?
Marines: How dare you harm our comrades?!!!
Smoker: Hold it, all of you!!!
Doflamingo: Law, I could understand... / But Straw Hat is a mere pirate!! // Where did you let him run off to, you worthless fools?!!!
Doflamingo: TELL ME WHICH DIRECTION THOSE FILTHY BRATS WENT!!!
Flashback!Law: I'm planning to head for "Green Bit"...
Smoker: ...Can't say I recall. / "Joker". // Looks like they slipped right through our fingers. How will I explain this to Vergo back at G-5...?!
Doflamingo: ...Vergo's dead, and you know it!! // It looks like you've learned a little too much...!!!
Marines: Smoke-ya... // !!! // Vice-Admiral Smokey~~~~~!!!
People: Whooooo~~!! // Keep a close lookout for reefs!!
Luffy: Is it just me, or is this sea on a slope~~~~~?!! / The ship's going so fast~~~!! Ahahah!!
Law: It's just an "ocean hill". Nothing out of the ordinary.
Usopp: Like hell that's ordinary!!
Franky: No, Brook, it's not a baby sheep. It's the Mini-Merry #2. / ...And just so you know, you're the eighth person to ask this question. // Look, there was a waterway running alongside the lab, yeah? / So I used that to take the Sunny out to open water... / Then I took her back round to the entrance and retrieved the Mini-Merry #2.
Brook: Ah, so the baby sheep was safe!
[Label: Mini-Merry #2]
Brook: That's certainly good news! // Yohoho...
Luffy: Nami!! Where is it we're heading now again?
Nami: It's a place called "Dresrosa"! / According to Tra-kun, we should be able to get there... // ...if we follow this middle compass needle on a wide curve rather than going straight.
Kin'emon: D... Dresrosa?!
Luffy: You've heard of it?
Kin'emon: That is the very island where we... I mean, where I wish to go!! / Do you also have some manner of business there?!
Luffy: Yeah, I guess so! Hey, Tra-dude! / Whoo were you talking to just now?!
Law: To Doflamingo.
Usopp: DOFLAMINGO~~~~~?! The Shichibukai?! Isn't he meant to be super-dangerous?!!
Law: The plan is already in motion.
Zoro: What plan is this?
Luffy: Yeah, tell everyone about the plan!! C'mon, guys, gather round~~!!
People: YOU FORMED AN ALLIANCE TO DEFEAT A YONKOU?!!
Zoro: A Yonkou, huh? Sounds good to me!
Usopp: It does NOT sound good!! // Hold on, hold on!! Just calm down, everyone. / Luffy! Explain to the people who haven't heard about the alliance.
Luffy: Sure! Our crew and Tra-dude's crew... / ...are joining forces for a while!! So let's all act friendly!! Shishishi!!
Usopp: All in opposition!!
Brook: Does it really make any difference if anyone objects?
Sanji: Luffy's made his mind up, hasn't he? // Just to warn you, Luffy's idea of an "alliance" probably isn't quite the same as yours. / Bear that in mind, yeah?
Sanji: Still, at least this explains why Luffy was going on about kidnapping. I thought that wasn't like him... / I was starting to worry he was going to ask me to cook this creepy sheep-guy or something. / I'm not sure even I could pull that one off.
Caesar: ...Shurororo... I hope you people don't think you're going to get away with this...!! // You're making enemies of people you can't hope to handle!! Fools, all of you!!! // I hope you regret your foolishness... // ...when you die horribly!!! // Eurghhh...!!
Chopper: Sanji!! I'm trying to heal him right now!!! // You can kick him after I'm finished!!
Sanji: Some doctor you are...
Law: Your crew's part in the plan back on Punk Hazard was to kidnap Caesar. / Meanwhile I destroyed a machine he was using to create a drug called "SAD".
Law: The majority of pirates you'll find in the New World have their own station somewhere in this ocean... // ...with their own defined territory, and a vast number of subordinates. / They're more like massive crime syndicates than simple pirate crews. / In other words, they're on a different scale to the pirates you've faced so far!! / Try to face one of these crews alone, and you'll never even make it as far as their Captain!! // That said, this is still an underworld we're talking about. / In order to avoid attracting the attention of the Marines... / ...when deals are made, they don't happen out in the open...!! // And the man who has earned the most trust and power in this shadowy world is Doflamingo. // His underworld name is "Joker".
Law: And right now, Joker's most important dealings are with the Yonkou "Kaidou of the Hundred Beasts".
Zoro: What's the matter?
Kin'emon: N - No...!! / It's nothing at all...!! / Please, carry on! // Ahh!! What is this dragon creature?!! / Wh... Where did Momonosuke go?!
Luffy: You're looking at him.
Kin'emon: Huh?! // Oh!! Of course!! // I see... I see...!!
Law: Taking Kaidou's head is our ultimate goal...!!! / In other words, the key to success is how much we can reduce his military forces!! // Right now, Kaidou is buying large quantities of a certain fruit from Joker. // A fruit called "Smile" - it's a man-made Zoan-type Devil Fruit.
Usopp: Man-made?! But if humans can make Devil Fruit for themselves... They could create as many Fruit users as they want!!
Law: Precisely. // Being man-made, there are certain risks associated with these fruit... / But nonetheless, Kaidou has already amassed more than 500 Fruit users in his crew.
Usopp: ?!! // Who wants to back out?!!!
Zoro: Oh, shut up.
Law: ...But he's not going to be able to create any more.
Sanji: Ohhh...? / This guy, huh...?!
Caesar: Sh... Shuroro...
Chopper: You made the stuff that can create new Devil Fruits?! This SAD is pretty amazing!!
Usopp: Stop complimenting the bad guy!!
Law: It's an application of the Bloodline Factor theory discovered by Vegapunk.
Chopper: Oh, so it's Vegapunk that's amazing...
Caesar: Shut up!! You think you could do any better?!! // Brainless dolts!!
Law: At this point, Joker is done for. So we're moving on to the next phase of the plan. // Somewhere in Dresrosa is the factory that's creating the Smile fruit themselves.
Franky: ......... / So we just find the factory and destroy it?
Law: That's correct. But remember, we're up against a professional underground dealer. We can't let our guard down.
Luffy: And this is where you want to go as well, Kin?!!
Kin'emon: Indubitably! // One of my fellows... // ...is being held capture there!!!
Marines: Stop, please!! You're gonna kill Smoke-yan!! // If we lose him, then... then... // Who else is gonna lead a group of good-for-nothings like us?!!!
Doflamingo: Don't worry, I'll kill the lot of you!!! // Who can say what some of you may or may not have learned...? // Then I'll take care of Law, and Straw Hat too...!!!
Doflamingo: I'll make sure they're dead before this day is through!!!
Kuzan: My, my, my... Sorry to bother you...
Kuzan: ...but could you step aside?
Smoker: *pant*... // *pant*
Kuzan: That's my friend you've got there.
