Season 11

Three days earlier and on an island close to Water 7, Blackbeard receives the news of the Straw Hats' devastation of Enies Lobby and decides to pursue them. However, his plans are interrupted by Ace, who has come to avenge Blackbeard's murder of a crewmate. Teach claims that he had no other choice, for the man he killed possessed the devil fruit he wanted, which he had been searching for his entire life. He then asks Ace to join him; however, Ace refuses. They start fighting and Blackbeard reveals his newfound power, the power of darkness. The island is devastated and Ace defeated. MORE -LESS

Because the crew and ship are complete again, the Straw Hats can intensify their efforts to escape. They name their new ship Thousand Sunny, and Franky goes to the engine room to activate one of its special abilities. Luffy says goodbye to his grandfather and Coby. Enraged by his grandson's audacity, Garp pulls out a gigantic iron ball and throws it at him and his ship. At the last second, the Sunny's emergency acceleration device activates and blasts the ship a kilometer away and outside Garp's reach. Meanwhile, the crew's wanted posters and news of their deeds at Enies Lobby circulate around the world. MORE -LESS

The Straw Hats set sail, even though Usopp has not yet returned to them, because Zoro had promised that if Usopp was allowed to return without his first words being an apology, Zoro would leave himself. Even if they wanted to wait longer, they could not, because Garp has arrived and under direct orders of Fleet-Admiral Sengoku starts throwing cannonballs at the Straw Hats' ship. While the Straw Hats fend of the cannonballs, Usopp arrives at the coast and tries to rejoin the crew as if nothing happened. Minding Zoro's words, neither he nor Luffy admit hearing Usopp's calling in the midst of battle. Only afterward Usopp realizes his fault and begs for forgiveness; Luffy tearfully reaches out and pulls him aboard. MORE -LESS

Luffy tells Franky that, if he wants his swimsuit back, he will have to join his crew. However, this does not persuade him. To weaken his resolve, Robin uses her ability to grab Franky's testicles and pulls on them. Iceburg tells him that he only wants to stay in Water 7 because he has not forgiven himself. Franky's followers bring him his luggage. He rejects it, telling them to stay out of his affairs. During this series of events, Franky cries, apparently from the pain inflicted by Robin, who had stopped some time ago. Sanji and Zoro arrive in a hurry, reporting that Garp has returned and is on his way to capture them. Luffy then returns the swimsuit to Franky, who subsequently agrees to join the crew. MORE -LESS

When the Straw Hats arrive at the coast, Iceburg shows them the ship, but Franky cannot be found. Iceburg gives his opinion: Franky is hiding because if he were asked face to face to join the crew, he would not be able to refuse; he wants to go but thinks of staying in Water 7 as his responsibility. On the other side of the island, Franky's men literally take the matter into their own hands: they steal Franky's beloved jammer-style swimsuit and attempt to lure him to the Straw Hats by passing it back and forth to each other. Midway, Sanji and Zoro seize him, put him into the Franky Family's shoot-anything-cannon, and have him shot in front of the new ship. MORE -LESS

Franky, Iceburg, and the Galley-La foremen work throughout the night to build the new ship for the Straw Hats. Usopp spends the time practicing the manner in which he will convince his former crewmates to let him join again. The next day, the Straw Hats are summoned to the shore to receive their ship. On departing, they are intercepted by the Franky Family, bringing the new wanted posters of the crew. However, the true reason they came is that Franky has received a bounty as well. They fear that, should he stay with them, he might be captured once more and that they would not be able to rescue him again. Therefore, they beg the Straw Hats to take Franky with them, regardless of whether he wants them to or not. MORE -LESS

Sanji is buying groceries in the company of Chimeney and Gonbe. For lunch, they lead him to the small floating restaurant of a drunken old man. He is asleep and not easily woken, so Sanji decides to prepare something himself. While he is cooking, the old man wakes up and immediately recognizes Sanji's way of handling the carving knife, for he knew Sanji's mentor, "Red-Leg" Zeff. He insists that Sanji taste some of his cooking. Sanji is amazed by the flavor, but cannot figure out how the old man made it. Intent on discovering the secret, he searches the city for seasonings that might have been used. Perchance he gets to eat an onigiri made by the old man and realizes that he uses a special salt. The salt was created by Aqua Laguna. As the storm floods the lower parts of the city, it covers the buildings with sea water. In the following sunny days, particularly tasty residual salt is left on the rooftops. MORE -LESS

Zoro strolls the city in search of a replacement katana, but does not have money. There, he is picked up by Michael and Hoichael, two idle boys from the backstreets. They show him around and call him their "big brother". Before he knows what is happening, he is introduced to their mother, is taken home with them, and has to feed babies and make laundry. He struggles to escape, eventually succeeding. Shortly afterward, the family is taken away by violent debt collectors. Alerted by one of the boys, Zoro arrives just in time to save them. MORE -LESS

Luffy and Chopper help a girl named Abi to search for her lost yagara bull, which had appeared to her in a dream. During the Aqua Laguna, her family had left their 100-year-old bull at home. When they returned after the storm he was gone. The three search all over the city for him with no success. Another yagara claims to have heard the missing one's voice. After finding a piece of his scarf, they track him into the underwater passages of the city. However, they only find an illusion. Abi is devastated. Then, they hear the voice of a yagara baby wrapped in the rest of the old one's scarf. MORE -LESS

A fleet of navy ships could not keep the "Red-Haired" Shanks and Whitebeard from meeting. Those unprepared to bear his presence fall unconscious to the ground as Shanks walks over the planks of Whitebeard's ship, carrying a large bottle of booze. While they drink, they reminisce about old times and wounds, which begin aching again. Shanks asks his peer to stop his subordinate Portgas D. Ace from pursuing Blackbeard. Whitebeard refuses. The two draw their weapons and fight. MORE -LESS

Garp takes his leave to let Luffy alone with Coby and Helmeppo so that they can chat. Afterwards, Coby thanks Luffy and Zoro for the opportunity to meet them again and promises to become stronger, so he might one day capture them. Once he and Helmeppo depart, the Straw Hats start a party at the Galley-La's company pool. During that party, Aokiji approaches Robin while staying out of sight. He explains to her that Saulo was his best friend and that he had only let her go to honor his wishes. He admits that he had decided to put an end to Robin's existence, always on the run, and the danger it meant for the world, but that her and the Straw Hats' actions have shown him that she has found her place. MORE -LESS

Garp is revealed to be Luffy's grandfather and is accompanied by old acquaintances of Luffy and Zoro from the beginning of their journey, Coby and Helmeppo. After giving Luffy a lecture for becoming a pirate instead of a marine, he tells him about his father, Monkey D. Dragon. Although Luffy does not know of it, he was once saved by him in Loguetown, where he was almost captured by Captain Smoker. MORE -LESS

Two days later and back in Water 7, Franky hears that "the item" has arrived. He had used the money, which he had stolen from the Straw Hats, to buy a large piece of precious wood. Using the wood, he plans to build a "dream ship" and offers to give it to the Straw Hats. The promise of a new ship and the recovery of their lost possessions from a group of Galley-La workers brightens the Straw Hat's outlook. However, another cloud darkens the horizon, as a group of marines, led by Vice-Admiral Garp, break into their quarters. MORE -LESS

Enies Lobby and the Buster Call fleet are out of sight. The Straw Hats meet the Galley-La president Iceburg and his employees aboard their company ship. The Going Merry breaks apart and Luffy begs the shipwrights to repair the beloved ship, but they refuse. Iceburg then describes how he had found the ship lying at the shore and had done everything to fix it, convincing Luffy to let it go. Reminiscing about their adventures together, the Straw Hats burn their old ship and watch as it sinks to the bottom of the sea. MORE -LESS

The voice had come from the Straw Hats' ship, the Going Merry. Sanji is the first to go aboard. To his surprise, nobody is there. The ship had made it from Water 7 to Enies Lobby on its own. The Straw Hats have little time to spare because the battleships have already taken aim at the tiny ship that has snuck in between them. They fire a salvo, almost from point-blank range, but miss. While absent earlier, Sanji found the control room for the Gate of Justice and set it to close. The large gate in its original position creates whirl streams strong enough to disturb the battleships' aim as well as their ability to maneuver, which allows the Straw Hats to escape. MORE -LESS

Familiar voices are heard from the navy's loudspeakers. Calling in from the far side of the island, the Franky Family and Galley-La foremen are telling them that they survived and have found a means of escape. The Straw Hats are not so fortunate. Their stolen convoy ship is blown up by a salvo of battleship fire. Another salvo destroys the second half of the Bridge of Hesitation, forcing the pirates onto the middle pillar. The situation worsens, as the marines see the state of Luffy. Worn out from the fight and from overusing Gear Second, he cannot move or run, as the battleships aim their mighty cannons at him. Things seem hopeless, until the group hears another voice calling out to them; they jump into the ocean. MORE -LESS

While the rest of the Straw Hats struggle to hold their own against the Buster Call's fighting elite, Usopp, unmasked, cannot believe his eyes, seeing Luffy lying in the dust in front of Lucci. He cries out to him, telling him to hang in and stand up. However, Luffy cannot move. In his desperation he insults Lucci, dares him to cross the destroyed bridge and fight him. Presuming Luffy to be defeated, Lucci is about follow Usopp's suggestion. However, Luffy gets back on his feet and activates Gear Second in preparation for the final round. Lucci hits him one more time with his Six Kings Gun and is sure of victory. However, Luffy does not fall. He turns around and ends the fight with a barrage of blows. MORE -LESS

The fight between Luffy and Lucci is nearing its end as the CP9 assassin makes use of his most powerful technique, the Six Kings Gun. The Bridge of Hesitation is surrounded by battleships, which, using their cannons, sever the bridge's first pillar, where Luffy is fighting, from the rest. Having cut off the Straw Hats' captain's retreat, the marines send their two hundred strongest fighters to recapture Robin. Meanwhile, Luffy is no longer able to stand up to Lucci's attacks and falls to the ground. MORE -LESS

Franky and Robin are throwing the last remaining marines off their commandeered convoy ship when Kokoro, in mermaid form, jumps out of the water and on board, carrying the whole group from the underground passage. A moment of happiness arises as they reunite with Robin, but does not last long. The battleships have set the whole island aflame and via loudspeaker a voice announces the destruction of the group of escapees at the main gate. With no more targets left, the fleet turns its attention toward the Bridge of Hesitation, where the Straw Hats are forced to wait for their captain's arrival. MORE -LESS

After fighting Lucci in Gear Third for a minute, Luffy is left to cope with the technique's side effect of his body shrinking to a fraction of its original size for around the same time. At the other end of the Bridge of Hesitation, Franky takes on Funkfreed, Spandam's sword infused with the powers of a devil fruit, which allow it to partly or completely turn into an elephant. At the islands entry, the two giants arrive, carrying the Galley-La foremen and the Franky Family on their shoulders. Instead of finding a means of escape, however, they are greeted by the cannon muzzles of three of the Buster Call's battleships. Equally desperate is the situation in the underground passage, where the group has been caught in the flooding-in water. Just as they are about to give up hope, a mermaid comes to their rescue. MORE -LESS

Fifteen years into the past, a 13-year-old Rob Lucci, as emissary of the world government, is sent into a country at war with pirates. Five hundred of their soldiers have been taken hostage and the pirates' captain demands the throne in exchange for the men's life. The country's king is close to giving in when Lucci arrives. However, Lucci has not come to offer help, but to take matters into his hands. He goes to the pirates and allows them to capture him. They lock him up with the five hundred soldiers. Lucci kills them all, in the name of justice, because for a soldier it is a sin to be weak. Afterwards, he kills the pirates' captain and ends the country's crisis. MORE -LESS

The Buster Call ships have reached the island. Guns blazing, they pass the Bridge of Hesitation. At the same time, the remaining Straw Hats, Kokoro, Chimeney, and Gonbe have entered the underground passage and are running towards the water streaming in on the other end. Meanwhile, Luffy and Lucci, having fled from the rising water, continue their fight a few levels higher. Because the effects of his Gear Second have worn off, Luffy is at a disadvantage. However, he has another trump card: he activates Gear Third, blows air into his arm until it reaches the size of that of a giant, and knocks Lucci out of the pillar. MORE -LESS

It is springtime in Grand Jipangu. One day remains until the yearly town festival, in which everyone gathers to have a picnic under the 1000-year-old sakura tree. Unfortunately, one of the town's children is sick and cannot attend. Luffy tries to think of a way to show him the tree in its bloom, but does not come up with a solution. When the tree disappears the next day, Luffy becomes the prime suspect. Robin investigates. The truth is that Buggy and his men stole the tree and brought it aboard the ship of Foxy the Silver Fox. She tips off Luffy, Usopp, and Sanji about the tree's location, who go there to retrieve it. MORE -LESS

Freed from her sea stone handcuffs by Franky, Robin returns to her normal self. With no way back, the two decide to capture the ship Spandam had intended to use to bring Robin to the navy headquarters. The Buster Call ships arrive and start by shooting at the Tower of Justice, causing its dangerously positioned upper half to crush down into the waterfall. The resulting loud noise created reaches Luffy and Lucci beneath the Bridge of Hesitation. Anticipating that the Straw Hats would emerge through the underground passage, Lucci tears a hole into a wall of the underwater chamber, flooding it and the passage. MORE -LESS

Having loosened Robin's tooth grip on the bridge's rim, Spandam ties a rope around her waist and pulls her further along; during this, he constantly insults her and proudly tells her that Spandaine, the man who had caused her so much suffering, is his father. A stream of tears runs down her cheeks as her time runs out. Just then, and seemingly out of nowhere, an explosive projectile hits the back of Spandam's head. A stream of projectiles falls on the marines gathered around him. Outside the range of normal guns, Sogeking is shooting at them, standing on top of the Tower of Justice. MORE -LESS

After many failed attempts, Zoro finally cuts Kaku. Shortly afterwards, their fight climaxes, as both combatants use their ultimate techniques. The victor is Zoro. On the other side of the raging waters, on the Bridge of Hesitation, Spandam continues to drag Robin along. Fear strikes her as the end of the bridge, which for her marks the point of no return, comes into sight. She pulls herself free and runs away. Spandam pursues and recaptures her, but she holds on to the rim of the bridge with her teeth. Below them, Franky tries in vain to force his way past the much more powerful Lucci. As Franky is on the verge of being killed, Luffy activates Gear Second and attacks Lucci, allowing Fanky to slip by. MORE -LESS

Spandam drags Robin along the Bridge of Hesitation, while beneath them, Lucci is blocking the way upstairs. Franky arrives and offers to help fight Lucci. However, Luffy insists that Franky save Robin. Reminded of himself when he was young and tried to stop the sea train from carrying away his mentor, Franky agrees. To do so, though, he has to get past Lucci. At the same time, in the Tower of Justice, Kaku shows Zoro the many tricks he can perform with his body that is now equipped with devil fruit powers, discovering new techniques in the process. MORE -LESS

Nami drags the wounded Sogeking from the fighting zone. As she is on the verge of going downstairs, Sogeking has an idea. Meanwhile, Sanji starts exchanging blows with Jyabura, who sends him flying into the hallway. Continuing their fight there, Jyabura tries in vain to trick Sanji with a made-up story of being Robin's long-lost brother. The battle seems even, until the wolf-man gains the upper hand over his opponent with well-placed blows. Realizing that he is on the losing side, Sanji resolves to use his newest technique. He spins around until his leg starts glowing red with heat, and defeats Jyabura in a fierce mid-air final. MORE -LESS

Having pulled the once-again tiny, but now completely unconscious, Chopper out of the sea, Franky ponders on how he can cross the wild waters to reach the Bridge of Hesitation. Chimeney and Gonbe appear outside the secret passage and lead him to Kokoro and the underground tunnel. In the last remaining fight at the Tower of Justice, Zoro and Kaku exchange heavy blows, while Jyabura takes on Sogeking and Nami. The latter fight ends quickly, as Jyabura, holding the unmoving body of Sogeking, aims his killing blow. Just then, Sanji, freed from the influence of Kalifa's power by the water of the bathtub that Chopper had thrown downstairs earlier, steps in, taking his place in the fight. MORE -LESS

The fight between Nami and Kalifa climaxes. Kalifa sweeps the room with a tidal wave of power-draining bubbles to counter Nami's illusions. Barely escaping, Nami manages to prepare and release her finishing blow in the form of a horizontal lighting bolt. Franky, who had followed Chopper in climbing up the walls of the Tower of Justice, arrives as she is about to retrieve Kalifa's key. A moment's discussion later, they conceive of a plan. They follow Chopper into the room where Zoro and Sogeking, still cuffed together, try to fight Kaku and Jyabura. There, Franky uses his air pressure cannon to blast Chopper outside and into the sea, while Nami uses Kalifa's key to release Zoro and Sogeking from their shackles. MORE -LESS

Lucci and Luffy begin their mutually anticipated duel, while Nami and Kalifa's fight enters the next phase. Both combatants have scouted out each other's abilities. Kalifa attempts to finish Nami off. Just then, Chopper, in his monstrous form, crushes through the wall and enters the fight. He does not recognize Nami, just as he did not recognize Franky. As he goes through the room, he rips out Kalifa's large bathing tub and throws it downstairs, where the immobilized Sanji is sitting. Nami is deeply worried about Chopper, but before she can help him, she has to finish her fight. The torn up water pipes sprinkling the room's air provide a possible advantage for her. MORE -LESS

On the Courthouse Plaza, the marines defeat Oimo and Kāshī and capture the Straw Hats' allies in the courthouse. Almost on the Bridge of Hesitation, which leads through the Gate of Justice, Spandam tries to contact the CP9 members at the tower, but accidentally invokes a Buster Call, causing ten battleships and five vice-admirals to be dispatched to Enies Lobby from the nearby navy headquarters. Realizing his first mistake, Spandam makes another by informing the whole island of the coming threat. Out of fear, the island's 10,000 soldiers leave their prisoners and flee to the coast. MORE -LESS

Having taken three Rumble Balls, Chopper transforms into an oversized and purely instinct driven version of himself. Kumadori goes all out to defeat his enemy, but in the end cannot succeed. In Kalifa's room, Nami lies helplessly on the ground, watching her opponent casually bathing. Slowly, the strength returns to her limbs while Kalfi redresses. Shortly into their fight, Nami discovers the essence of Kalifa's new ability. Being a soap woman, she can create a foam that washes away anything, even a person's strength. Chopper goes on a rampage and, with Franky on his heels, climbs the tower's outside walls. Having crossed the underground passage, Luffy finally catches up to Lucci. MORE -LESS

It is the seventh day of the new year in Grand Jipangu. Nami, Sanji, and Chopper are on their way to the shogun's castle, delivering a large quantity of rice cakes to be thrown from the castle. Most of the townspeople have gathered there, hoping to catch the one cake containing a precious jewel. Buggy and his henchmen have made several plans to seize the cakes, including the one with the jewel, before they reach their destination. Although his plans fail, Buggy manages to take Princess Vivi hostage. However, Detective Luffy shows up in time to thwart his efforts. In the end, the cakes are safe and everyone eats until they are satisfied. MORE -LESS

In the Edo period-based alternate reality Grand Jipangu, the small girl Rika takes an ill person, whom everyone calls Tot-san (which means "father" in Japanese), to her house to nurse him back to health. Organized crime boss Buggy the Clown and one of the town's highest officials scheme to get rid of Detective Luffy. Mistaking Rika to be the daughter of Tot-san, Buggy kidnaps her to collect Tot-san's debt. When Luffy comes to rescue her, the high official attempts to exile him for attacking an innocent citizen. Instead, he himself is stripped of his position for joining forces with criminals by the shogun's daughter Vivi. MORE -LESS
