654: A 'New' World
Cover story: Galley-La
As the Strawhats enter the New World, we're shown several people discussing this...
In the New World, Eustass Kidd who is going through the treasures he's taken from Big Mom's destroyed ships is told of Luffy's reappearance.
Eustass grins and says that he knew Luffy wouldn't be dead until he himself kills him.
Next are the Gorosei reactions.
They speak of Garp's trouble grandson, but aslo remind themselves of the power they've given to the marines.
Strawhat Luffy will be taken care of according to them.
Meanwhile, we're finally shown two of the new Warlords.
Buggy-sama and Hawkins.
Buggy mentions that he is suprised to see Strawhat, but he has no interest in fighting him. Someone of his crew states that Buggy has grown even more powerful over the two years.
Hawkins on the other hand, pulls out a card which is not seen. Hawkins decides to head towards the New World.
Caribou finally gets back to 'you-know-who' aka Doflamingo.
Doflamingo mocks Caribou for his many failures.
It is revealed that he hired Caribou to kill the Strawhats. When he failed, he gave him the option of stealing mermaids for him.
Since he failed all of his missions, Doflamingo decides that he'll keep his crew until he can complete the job.
Doflamingo's DF is finally fucking revealed as he tortures Coribou and the rest of Caribou's crew.
Finally, the Strawhats surface and immediately start to party.
Until a cannonball is fired and an entire fleet of marine ships is already waiting on them. Nami remarks that these are the 'new' marines.
Luffy is actually excited to already be attacked when he enters the New World! He uses Gear 3 to destroy several of the marine ships, but is slammed into the Sunny by...
Vice-Admiral Smoker (Smoker's full apperance is finally shown!)
