Miss Goldenweek’s Operation: Back to the Baroque, Part 19 – Here to Stay!
Mister 3 is on his ship, slowly leaving the island. An unrecognizable person is standing on the shore.
Main Gate of Enies Lobby: Sogeking, who missed the climb up the King Bull, is currently hiding in the hair of the giant Oimo, watching the Galley-La boys fight the soldiers and agents of Enies Lobby. He considers fleeing, but then realizes that the giant next to him is awake and crying.
With tears he tells that he would be humiliated, that he would have failed after 50 years and that he would now be a disgrace to all Elbaf. When Sogeking hears the name Elbaf, he asks in amazement if the giant was from the warrior village of Elbaf. The giant explains to him that 100 years ago Kashii and he were pirates who roamed the sea until one day they came to an island where their captains began a duel to the death. Only the winner would be allowed to return to the home village. The other members of the gangs left the island. But when after 50 years still none of them had returned, Oimo and Kashii set out to find their captains. However, they were captured by the navy on the way there. They told them that they were holding their captains in a World Government prison. So, the World Government offered them 100 years to guard the gate of Enie’s Lobby so they could free their captains. The two giants accepted the offer. They had been guarding the gate for 50 years now, but were taken by surprise by pirates that day. Therefore, their captains would now have to spend the rest of their lives in prison.
When Sogeking has heard the story, he takes off his mask and tells Oimo that he met two giants on the Grand Line on an island who have been fighting each other for 100 years now. It was the two giants Brogy and Dorry. Oimo can’t believe this. He thinks Usopp is lying. But Usopp knows their names as well as their techniques and laughter. What the Navy told them was a lie.
Meanwhile, in court, Judge Baskerville is informed of the situation. He orders the 11 jurors to be called, causing consternation among the soldiers and agents.
After Sodom had to stay behind injured, Gomorrah is now fighting its way on. On it are also the Straw Hats. While Chopper is still thinking about Sodom, Nami is talking to Grandma Kokoro via her Den-den Mushi. She explains to them that there is no road between the courthouse and the justice tower, just a drawbridge. In order to lower it, one must go into the two adjacent towers and flip the levers. Further, Nami is told that they saw Luffy climbing onto the roof of the courthouse, and he is already engaged in the first fight there.
Therefore, the Franky Family decides to split into two groups for the two towers, while the Straw Hats are to meet Luffy on the roof. But there is the next trouble shortly after, when Gomorrah is suddenly attacked by the 11 jurors. The King Bull is already threatening to topple over, but is able to keep himself on his feet with the last of his strength.
In the tower of justice Franky tries to cheer Robin up. But she just sits wordlessly next to him.
Meanwhile, near the main gate, the two giants are up again. When the Galley-La boys see them, they think they have lost. But Oimo and Kashii, contrary to the fears of the ship’s carpenters, strike down their opponents and not themselves. Sitting on top of the giants, in fact, is Sogeking, who has exposed the navy’s lie.
