Enel’s Great Space Voyage, Part 7: Lieutenant Spacey regrets his desertion from the enemy. The little creature has climbed out of the crater with Enel and stands armed.
Water 7, Galley-La Company House: The Straw Hat Pirates finally wants to leave Water 7 to set course for Fish Man Island on their new ship. Sanji reacts extremely disturbed over his drawn wanted poster photo. Nami also can’t believe she now has a wanted poster and is annoyed at having her picture taken. Chopper also whines about his wanted poster, but not because he’s afraid of bounty hunters, but because his bounty is way too low! The Straw Hats head off to receive their new ship from Franky and the Galley-La.
Scene change to naval headquarters: Attack, who is responsible for the wanted poster photos, is asked why he couldn’t take a proper wanted poster photo of Sanji and why he had to trace it. He replies that the picture turned black and he has no idea how that was possible. It turns out that he just forgot to take off the lens cap of the camera.
Water 7, Ship Graveyard: The Straw Hat Pirates has arrived and Iceberg, unveiling the new ship instead of Franky, doesn’t take long to present them with their new ship. All the Straw Hats are immediately impressed and explore the ship. Luffy rolls onto the deck on the new lawn, while Robin admires the size of the deck. Iceberg explains to Nami that the sails are gaff sails, which is only suitable for professionals and would lead to shipwreck for inexperienced navigators. Nami is excited about this “challenge to her skills”. Meanwhile, Sanji rummages through the ship’s new kitchen and discovers a lockable refrigerator he’s always wanted so Luffy doesn’t eat everything away. Luffy wants to thank Franky for this great ship and asks Iceburg where he is. Iceburg guesses that Luffy must want to hire him for his crew and counters that Franky can’t bring himself to turn down the offer because he’s dying to go to sea with the Straw Hat Pirates, but he feels he has to stay on Water 7. Iceburg advises Luffy that he should try force to persuade Franky.
Franky House: The Franky Family can’t believe why Franky is sitting here relaxing. Zambai asks him if he doesn’t want to go with Luffy. However, the latter criticizes the newly assembled Franky House for having a reason that he can’t leave them alone. Zambai correctly notes that Franky is hiding from the Straw Hat Pirates. They know full well that Franky would enjoy sailing along with them. Zambai shows Franky his new wanted poster and says that it’s getting too dangerous for him in Water 7. Franky, however, does not care.
Suddenly Tamagon knocks Franky over and rips off his underpants. The Franky Family takes to their heels to lure Franky to the Straw Hats. Franky is visibly angry and rushes after them and a fierce chase ensues for Franky’s “Battle Pants”. Franky chases the Franky Family around the city, taking them down one by one, but they keep passing the underpants to each other so that their owner can’t get his hands on them. The town is in an uproar and even cops have stepped in to stop the perverted Franky, yet to no avail.
After all the members of the Franky Family have been eliminated, Luffy offers to pass the underpants. The latter immediately flees with the underpants towards the ship’s graveyard. Casually, the two talk about the new ship and Franky mentions a few highlights. Franky now attacks Luffy as well. The latter passes the pants to Chopper, who catches them with his mouth. The Franky members still standing now roll up in front of Franky with a cannon. He is stuffed into it by Zoro and Sanji and fired towards the ship’s graveyard. This is also where Franky lands, accompanied with astonished looks at Franky’s nakedness. Luffy holds Franky’s underpants in the air, thanks Franky for the ship, and gives him one condition: If he wants his Battle Pants back, he must join the Straw Hat Pirates!
