Vito: (……………!!) // Whoa…!!
Bege: Vito, what are you doing?!
Vito: Father!! It’s amazing!! Right now…the President of the Sekei Company… / …and the leader of the Germa are talking together, la-lick!!
Capone: Well, why wouldn’t they be talking. / They’ve both got mouths and ears, ain’t they?
Vito: Yes, but… At any rate, this is one out-there party, la-lick…!!
Vito: The eldest son and Candy Minister, Perospero! // The eldest daughter and Fruit Minister, Compote! // The second son and Sweet Star, Katakuri! // The fourteenth daughter and Sweet Star, Smoothie! // The third son, Daifuku… / The fourth son, Oven… // There’s no end to the monsters attending… // It was pretty comforting when we thought of them all as allies… / But the thought of making enemies of all of them scares me to death, la-lick!
Door: (……Hmm? // Enemies?)
Soldier: Presenting… // Mother Carmel.
BigMam: Yes… // This is our… // Mother!!!
SomeGuy: Ah yes, our Mother… / It’s good to see her looking spirited as ever! // (Not that I have a clue who she is……)
BigMam: Haaaaah hah hah mah mah mah mah! / That’s right… Mother is the light in this world…!!!
SomeOtherGuy: This is my first time attending one of your tea parties, so I hope you will forgive my ignorance… // …but might I ask what relation this fine individual holds to you, Big M…
BigMam: Don’t you dare intrude… // …on my precious memories!!!
DuFeld: Now, now… Putting that aside!! / I happen to have brought you a gift, Charlotte!! // Just a little something to celebrate your daughter’s wedding day!
BigMam: Oh, my! / If it isn’t a treasure chest!! I love treasure chests!♡ I wonder what could be inside!
Stussy: I have also brought a gift, Linlin!♡
Giberson: Please accept mine also!!
Morgans: Mine is a rarity from the southern lands!

BigMam: Oh, I’m ever so thrilled~~~~!♡ / You’re always so kind!! // So many treasure chests!! Thank you all~~~~~!! / I’m the luckiest lady alive!♡
Morgans: Speaking of treasure chests, Mamigo! / What’s this I hear about you obtaining the legendary treasure of the sea bed?
BigMam: News really does travel fast with you, eh, Morgans? You’re quite right! // The treasure chest passed down by the seabed Royal Family!! / Through some strange fate, Neptune let it go, and it is now right here!! // This is… / …the box of legend… / The Tamatebako!!!
DuFeld: Ahhh! It has such a weighty presence!!
Stussy: Whatever could be inside?!
BigMam: The plan is to open it along with all of your presents… // …at the grand banquet after Purin’s ceremony!!!
People: Well, won’t that be grand~~~!!!
Bege: There you are. All finished?
People: The arrangements went without a hitch……!!
Bege: How are things looking down below?
People: The chefs are very busy now preparing for the banquet. // We’ve blocked all the corridors. // Once this entrance is closed too, nobody will be able to come up here for quite a while. // We’ve used Horned Den-Den Mushi to block off all telepathic signals as well. / The hall will be entirely isolated.
Bege: Excellent. // Good work. Hurry and get changed.
Bege: Caesar. / Bring out the mirror…
Caesar: Damn it, you used that name again!!
Caesar: Hmph!! // So this is the entrance to the Tea Party…
Caesar: Enjoy yourselves while you can, scum of the world!! Shurororo!!!
Bege: As if you’re not scum yourself… Now hurry and hide that mirror nearby! // Once the terrible cry starts, you take that mirror… / …and leap into the hall to meet us. That’s your job. // That’s our only way out of here. / You’d better not try anything funny.
Caesar: I’m not going to betray you after coming this far!!
Door: (Caesar Clown?! / ……This is terrible… Bege and his men are plotting something!!)
Someone: All carved away.
Bege: Information leaks can bring about unpredictable crises. // Thirty minutes until the ceremony… / Are the Straw Hats all ready to go?
Caesar: Take a look for yourself. / They’re inside your body, aren’t they…?
Bege: Hey, you lot!!!
Bege: What do you think you’re napping for?!!! / What happened to your preparations?!!
Jinbei: Let them sleep for now. / It seems they have barely slept since arriving here. / I will awaken them ten minutes before we begin.
Bege: You people are crazy… / If you don’t do your part, I’ll abandon you first chance I get, understood?!!!
Jinbei: That won’t be a problem. // I’m paying careful attention to the outside, and making all the preparations.
Bege: That crazy bunch…!! I can’t believe them…
Bege: You head back inside too for the moment.
Bege: I’m going to enter the hall myself……!! You’d all better be prepared. // Once I go in there… / There’s no turning back!!!
