Announcement: Please watch your step.
[Box: ...the Bondola ends its journey.]
People: We have left the climate area for bubbles, so I would direct the merfolk among us... / ...to take these reinforced bubbles...
[Box: From there, the passengers must climb a long, grand staircase...]
Shirahoshi: It's so wide~~~~!
People: We hope you had a safe journey!
[Box: ...to reach the tallest and largest continent in all the world... // ...positioned in the very centre of the world's oceans. // This is the land where the descendants of the world's creators make their home...]
[Box: And the name of that magnificent land is...]

[Text: Holy Land of Mary Geoise]
Shirahoshi: What a beautiful place!! / Are those green things "forests"?
People: Indeed - albeit artificial ones.
[Box: ...of Mary Geoise.]
People: Lady Shirahoshi, if you and your fellow merfolk could hold onto these connecting handles.
Shirahoshi: ......... // Oh! It started moving!!
Sterry: Whoaaahh!! Is this an earthquake?!! I'm gonna die! / Protect me~~~~~~!!
People: This is a travelator. The ground moves belowfoot.
Fukaboshi: Father, would it not be better to take the ordinary paths? / Shirahoshi, you wanted to see the forests, did you not?
Fukaboshi: The view is so wonderful! We should take our time and enjoy it.
Shirahoshi: Ahh! I quite agree, Brother! Don't you, Father?
Neptune: By all means.
People: Then we will accompany you.
Sterry: Aha... You're afraid of the convenience of civilisation, aren't you?!! // (You common fish!) // We must implement this system in the Goa Kingdom also! / This "travluter" is most convenient!!
People: It is a "travelator".
Sterry: Yes, yes, that's another way of calling it!
Fukaboshi: (I sense something quite unpleasant here...)
Slavedriver: No slacking!!
Slaves: *pant* // *pant*
Slavedriver: Make sure to keep it moving... / ...at a smooth and comfortable rate!!
Slave: *pant*... *pant*... *pant*... // (Somebody help me... Or else... At least kill me...!)
[Box: A certain Tenryuubito mansion]
Chalros: .................. // F...... / Father dearest! Father dearest!!
Father: What is it now, Chalros?
Chalros: ...............!! // It is a mermaid! // And a gigantic one, at that......!
[Box: Mary Geoise - Pangea Castle]
People: Open the gates~~~~~!!!
[Box: Main Gate]
[Box: Inside the castle - Social Courtyard]
Princes: So these are all royals and their guards... / From all around the world!!
Princes: Starting tomorrow... / For the seven days the council lasts, it looks like there won't be a dull moment even for us relatives. // The food and drink are extravagant... // And though all weapons are confiscated... // The guards all look like a force to be reckoned with......!! // Father seems to be fitting in well already... / That's a relief, at least.
People: Well, well, princess of the ocean floor!! / Your beauty is just as breathtaking as all the rumours say!♡ // How do you like the look of my son here? He's single, you know!! // Papan! She's not bad, this girl, not bad at all! // Hey, this isn't a race, you know. I have a single son myself... // P...Pappy!! I like this girl a lot!! // No!! Mermaid Princess, you should consider my son!! // Ohohoho! Our family has not one but three handsome princes!!
Shirahoshi: U...Um... // You're not my type!
Fukaboshi: Look, what my little sister said just now was a dialect expression... It means "I'm not yet married", and...
People: Why, you!! Make a fool out of me, will you?!!
Ryuuboshi: In situations like this, you have to be tactful! Say things like "That's so nice of you!" or "We should have dinner sometime!" even if you don't mean it!
Shirahoshi: Whaaaaa~~~?! But I couldn't possibly lie to...
Ryuuboshi: It's not lying, it's just being gentle!! // If you hurt their feelings too much, it could turn into an international incident-fa-mi-re-do!!♪ Come on, let's go over there for a moment...
Vivi: Ohh! // How adorable~~~~~!♡
Leo: That is not a compliment for a warrior, you know!!
Rebecca: (......Are you all right, Leo?!)
[Text: Princess of the Alabasta Kingdom / Vivi (& Carue)]
[Text: Retainer from Dresrosa / Rebecca]
Vivi: Oh, I'm very sorry! I didn't mean anything bad by it.
Leo: Huh?!! // Then that's OK! // I only showed myself to you because you said you know Luffyland and his friends!
Vivi: (So cute...)
Leo: We are Luffyland's subordinates! We're pirates too, you know!
Rebecca: I didn't expect to find people to talk to Lucy about here at the Reverie! // But I suppose I should have known...they really are adventuring across the whole world!
Vivi: ...Indeed. Of course, they don't like to be called heroes... / ...so they seem to mostly be gathering infamy as their bounties go up and nasty rumours spread... // But I'm sure they haven't changed at all really!
[Box: Alabasta Kingdom Trivia]
[Text: Vivi, princess of a desert country in the Grand Line, is a friend of the Straw Hat crew who once accompanied them and voyaged aboard their ship. / The rebellion that arose in her homeland turned out to be a conspiracy led by former Shichibukai Crocodile, but thanks to Luffy and his crew, the crisis was averted and the country saved. / The government reported this resolution as the work of the Marines.]
Vivi: When I read the newspaper article about Dresrosa, I thought to myself... // Luffy and his friends... / ...must have found someone they wanted to help again...!
Rebecca/Leo: ......!! // You're totally right~~~~~~~~~~!!
Shirahoshi: Excuse me...
Rebecca: Ah! The Mermaid Princess!♡
Shirahoshi: Were you just talking about Luffy-sama?
Ryuuboshi: !! Shirahoshiiiiii~~~~!!! // Even if they were, that doesn't mean they know him personally!! / Luffy-kun is a pirate!! You can't let people know he's your friend-la-ti-do!!♪
Vivi: (They've made it to the New World now, so... I recall pirate ships have to take the route through Fishman Island...)
Revbecca: Hey, did you just say "Luffy-sama"?
Vivi: Wait, Rebecca! If you didn't hear correctly -
Shirahoshi: I certainly did!♡ Do you know him too?
Ryuuboshi: Stop! His name doesn't prove anything, everyone knows that!!
Shirahoshi: I actually owe Luffy-sama and his friends a great debt...
Rebecca/Vivi: Just like us!!
Igaram: Vivi-sama is making friends with the Mermaid Princess...
Viola: Rebecca looks like she's having so much fun!♡
Fukaboshi: My sister is not used to social events. I am most grateful.
Igaram?: Such a strange twist of fate.
Sai: Hmm?! // Hey! Could that be... / ...Rebecca from Dresrosa I spy over there?!!

Rebecca: Ah! // That's...!
Sai: The name's Sai!!
Rebecca: Chinjao's grandson, right?!
Sai: Ohhh! My brother!! I didn't know you were here, Leo!!
Leo: I am a secret bodyguard! // Why are you here even though you're a pirate?!
Sai: Right back atcha!! // (I'm going to take this job as an opportunity to cut my ties with the country.)
Wapol: Maaaaaaahahahah!! Well, well, well!! If it isn't Princess Vivi!!!
Vivi: Wapol?!! What are you doing here?!
Wapol: Maaaaahahahahahah!! You dumb hippo!!! // Wouldn't you like to know!
Wapol: That's right! I went flying through the air!! Straw Hat Luffy sent me flying far across the ocean!!!
Shirahoshi: Oh... Is that man another of Luffy-sama's friends...?
Vivi: No! He's an enemy, Shirahoshi.

Wapol: How's that uptight loser King Cobra doing?
Wapol: Actually, I just saw him a minute ago looking anything but in good spirits... / ...so I was just asking out of spite!! Mahahahahah!
Kinderella: Ohhhh~!♡ Darling, you're the funniest guy in the universe!♡ Tama-no-koshi-koshi-koshi-koshi!♡ // Koshi-koshi-koshi!♡
[TN: "Tama-no-koshi" is an expression referring to marrying into money...and also seems to be her laugh??? >.>]

Dalton: Well hello there, Vivi-chan. You look more elegant than ever.
Kureha: Hihihih! Ya feelin' happy? If I'd known you were a princess back then... / ...I'd've squeezed a lot more cash outta you!
Wapol: .................. // Hey, hey, hey, Dalton, you bastard!! / Where does a servant like you get off telling me what to do?!!
