Background text: The unstoppable heart beat!!
Hancock: What's happening to me!! / I don't want to go against Luffy's request...!!! // To suddenly go to central... / Though I do have bad feelings about it...!!
Nyon: That is "love"!!! This unrecognizable suffering you feel, / it will soon weaken you and lead to your death!! // The past empresses...they all tried to crush that feeling and wound up wrecking themselves. / Your decision to go with that man will be what saves you. // By going to central and fulfilling your obligation as a "Shichibukai", / you will also be saving this island. // You will also be helping Monkey D. Luffy... // ...What star was he born under...? / Normally...a pirate would never want to go to the "Great Prison" nor would one have the means to get there...aside from being captured...
Box: Amazon Lily - Harbor.
Girl3: Weren't you leaving tomorrow morning!?
Girl4: I still haven't gotten to touch you yet!!
Fat girl: It seems their destination has been changed. / Apparently he and Hebihime-sama are going to board the ship from central!
Luffy: I owe you guys a lot!! / I'll come back with my crew next time!! // Ah - is that okay...?
Margaret: Ahaha, if it's your crew then I'm sure it would be a special exception. // Ah!
Sweet Pea: The "She has come." volume.
Hancock: Just who... // had the nerve...
Hancock: To put a puppy!! // And a baby seal in my path!!
Girl: Kyaa! It's Hebihime-sama!
Girl2: I'm very sorry, it was my fault...!!
Hancock: Be more careful...
Girl: For some reason she seems exceptionally beautiful!!
Girl2: Is there no end to her sex appeal!?
Luffy: Hey!! Sorry for the sudden request, snake woman!! / I really want to leave here fast!!
Hancock: ! // Oh no...!! Our eyes mustn't meet...
Margaret: No, Luffy!! Speaking to her that way is rude!! / Call her "Hebihime-sama"...
Hancock: ... // Please...Call me Hancock.
Everyone: !!? // Kyaa~~~~~!!!
Luffy: Ok, got it, Hanmock.
Girl: Hebi...Hebi!!! Hebihime-sama...smiled!!? What's this sudden change!!? What's this sudden radiance!!?
Nyon: A woman in love? Hehehehe there was once such a time for me...
Girl: Hm? Old Lady Nyon, your face looked really weird just now.
Nyon: Shut your trap!!!
Girl: Have a good journey, Hebihime-sama~~~!!
Girl2: Come back again, Luffy~~~!
Girls: See you again~~~!!!
Girl: Stop that!!!
Hancock: The situation is as I explained to you on the Den Den Mushi.
Momonga: The only ones boarding are you and the snake, right? / As for wanting to stop at the Great Prison, "Impel Down", // I somehow managed to get the officials to agree... // Usually, it's a place that the "Shichibukai" pirates stay away from at any cost. / This time is an exception. We don't have much time, so you can't stay there for long. // Anyway, come aboard!!
Momonga: It seems waiting paid off. / Now I'll be able to fulfill my orders. // First off, / can you do something about the crew? ...Are they dead?
Sander Sonia: Then, ane-sama!! Please take care!!
Marygold: Stay alive and come back, ane-sama~~~!!
Girl: I'll be praying for your safety, Hebihime-sama!!
Girl2: (You take care too, Luffy~~~!!)
Hancock: Farewell. I leave the country to you.
Momonga: Get the ship moving!! You idiots...!!
Marine: Y-...Yes sir, right away!
Box: Luffy somehow managed to get the cooperation of the "Shichibukai," Boa Hancock, // and succeeded in boarding the Marine warship. // He now heads to the world's greatest Underwater Prison, "Impel Down".
Box: Grand Line --- "Marine Headquarters".
Marine: Fleet Admiral Sengoku!! / We just received a transmission from Vice Admiral Momonga!! // It seems "Empress Boa Hancock" finally gave in, / and is currently heading here!!
Sengoku: Finally, huh...Hopefully she'll get here in time... / That woman is strong...!!! // Now we have six of the "Shichibukai". One more left... / The one we sent to the prison. Has he cooled his head yet?
Marine: Ah, no...At the moment he seems to be firm in his decision to fight us...!! // He's even prepared to lose his "Shichibukai" status...
Sengoku: I had thought we would be fighting with his great power on our side, but... // Coming here and rioting...
Marine: I have a report!! Fleet Admiral, sir!! During the Shabondy incident, / Kizaru-dono captured 500 pirates. / We need the documents for sending them to Impel Down...
Sengoku: Let the lower workers handle it!! / Don't come to me with anything unless it has to do with "White Beard".
Marine: There's also the issue of Roswald-sei...
Sengoku: That's an issue for the Admirals! Where's Garp at!!?
Marine: Vice Admiral Garp left for Impel Down a while ago...
Sengoku: What's that man doing!? At this critical time!! He's too carefree...!!
Marine2: Fleet Admiral Sengoku!! It's of critical importance!! "White Beard" has started to move!! // Hah...Hah...
Sengoku: So he's come...This is a report from our patrol ships, right? Connect me through to them.
Marine: About that...The ship reported to have moved was "White Beard's" mother ship, The Moby Dick, / and all 23 of our ships...!! // We lost contact with all of them in an instant...!!!
Sengoku: !!? / What...!!?
Marine: We also received reports that other pirate crews in "The New World" were on the move as well... / ...But now, whether it's what they're planning or when they're going to attack, // we can't get any information at all!! They're completely out of our sights!! / We're preparing to send out new patrol ships-
Sengoku: ...!! // ...They got us...!! // So he's already made his move!!! // We have no clue where he'll attack us now. / Since it's where Ace is currently being held, // there's even a chance Impel Down will be targeted! Make everyone aware of this!!
Marine: Yes sir!!!
Box: The Great Prison, "Impel Down".
Man: It's this way, / Vice Admiral Garp... // Please be careful.
Garp: Yeah. // ... / Oh, oh...You've got quite the downtrodden form... // Are you alive there? // Ace...
Ace: Hah...Hah... // Old man...
Box: Turning the clock back a bit... // On a certain island, on a certain patch of ground, there is a large paw print...
Old man: Hey, hey...Hey, hey, hey... // Hey, hey, hey, hey, young lady... / Just where did you come flying from, young lady...
Nami: You've addressed me too many times...What?
Old man: You've regained your senses it seems, hm... // You won't be stormy anymore? // Then let me present!! // This tightly tied, "Wind Knot". // I untie one, and...
Old man: ...it summons a light breeze.
Old man: I untie two, and-
Nami: !? / Wah!
Old man: -it summons a strong wind...!! // I untie three and... // It summons a squall!!
Nami: Kyaaa!! // What are you doing!!!
Old man: I, I, I thought it would make you feel better!!!
Nami: I feel better! Thank you!! Now I want to go home!! Where is this!?
Old man: This is...!! The small sky island, "Weatheria"! // The island where the scientific study of weather is conducted.
Nami: S...Sky island~~~!!?
Box: Grand Line, a snow island.
sfx box: Dogohn...!!!
Taroimo: Grrrrrr!! Grrrrr!!!

Franky: But, damn. Just how far did I fly? // Ah~~~~cold!! A snow country!? ...Heh...heh!! Frannnkee!!!
Man: This is bad! To be wearing nothing but panties in all this snow...!! Were you robbed!?
Old man: Please wear this loin cloth!!
Franky: Loin cloth!!? Forget that! It's unneeded concern~~~!! If I wore that thing~~~!!
Franky: I'd be a perverted disgrace!! Auw!!! // Now follow along!! // Turn your butt~~~ / to the right!! / Put your right hand on your hip~~~thrust your left hand out!! // Slide in left!! / And repeat~~~!! // Auw!! One, two~~~! One, two!!
Old man: ...
Franky: Bring both hands down from above!! And screw!! // Nnnnnn~~~!! // SUPER~~~!!! // I'm still cold!!! Where the hell am I!!?
Old man: This is "Karakuri Island", the birth place of the genius. / You are in the "Future Kingdom, Barjimoa".
(tn note: 'karakuri' means 'machine')
Franky: What the hell is that!!?
Box: Grand Line. // The island of dreams, "Momoiro Island". // This island, along with "The Island of Women", is very legendary. // Animals and plants exist in this land of pink. // Those who gather on this island... // ...all have the heart of a maiden.
