One Piece Chapter 439


Color Spread: The Straw Hat Pirates returns from a shopping trip. Chopper pulls a cart full of food and a horse accompanies them.


The Straw Hat gang is still running from Vice Admiral Garp. Luffy, Chopper and Usopp celebrate happily while the marines on Garp’s ship wonder why the Straw Hats have caught their sails. Franky, before his plan is carried out, wants to pick a name for the ship. Luffy immediately gives his names for the ship, however they are just simple and silly listings of random animals. Franky offers a potential name for the ship, which Iceburg picked out when he first saw the figurehead of the ship: Thousand Sunny!

The crew is immediately enthusiastic about this name and puts aside the rest of their name suggestions, except for Franky, who tries to get his name for the ship accepted after all. The latter eventually settles for the name of Iceberg and wants to begin the plan to leave Water 7. He advises the remaining members to take one last look at the water city. Luffy calls out to his grandpa and Koby that he was happy to see them again and now they will escape. Garp is furious at Luffy for saying such a thing and pulls out his final weapon: a truly gigantic cannonball that would no doubt sink the Sunny to the bottom of the ocean. Franky now unpacks with his plan and introduces a giant air cannon powered by Coke. Just before the giant cannonball can sink the Thousand Sunny, a huge blast of power shoots out of the stern, sending the Sunny flying away and saving the ship from the bullet: Coup de Bust! Franky explains that the Coup de Bust can shoot the ship a kilometer away and uses up three barrels of Coke. All present can only marvel at this ship and its crew!

The workmen head back to the shipyard and Granny Kokoro, Chimney and Gonbe make their way to Shift station. The Franky Family is now left without their boss Franky on Water 7 and they wonder what they can do. Iceberg offers them work in the shipyard.

On some island on the Grand Line: Smoker, who has since been promoted to flotilla admiral, has just finished off a 50 million pirate. Tashigi, who has been promoted to Lieutenant, informs Smoker about the new wanted posters of the Straw Hat Pirates. He swears to the Straw Hat Pirates that he will crush them in the New World!

Sand Kingdom Arabasta: King Cobra, Igaram, Pell and Chaka also look at the wanted posters of the Straw Hat Pirates and are shocked that Nico Robin has joined Luffy’s gang. They assume when Vivi comes to know about it that she will react sadly and shocked as well. However, this is not the case because she knew about it. She believes in Luffy and that one day he will become Pirate King!

Grand Line: The Straw Hat Pirates bumps into Robin and Usopp, as well as new members Franky and the Thousand Sunny, who now make their way to Fish Man Island.
