The CP9 Mission Report, Part 11: Lucci gets his treatment as the other CP9 agents have raked in enough money.
At naval headquarters, Vice Admiral Garp receives word that “Dark King” Silvers Rayleigh is being auctioned off at Grove 1. The latter speculates that Rayleigh must sell himself as a betting debt, since he lost at gambling. Further, he orders that this news not be passed on to anyone – including Sengoku. He wants to settle the matter on his own; after all, the Navy cannot deal with two legends at the same time.
Human trafficking auction house on Grove 1: The host Mister Disko opens the auction. The first to be sold is a pirate named Byron.
Before Grove 1, Duval hands Sanji a list of human traffickers, giving Sanji an overview of the starting prices. In the conversation, Duval once again points out the special position of the mermaids, which can be seen in the highest starting price. Sanji’s temper breaks out again and he pushes Duval to find Camie.
Luffy is in the same situation, pushing to arrive and yelling for Camie.
Scene Change: The Coffee Monkeys are incensed that they had so much trouble catching and delivering a giant. They had expected a lot of credit for it, until Camie, a mermaid, was turned in just before the deadline.
The Tobiuo Riders spread the word among themselves that Camie is on Grove 1. All the Straw Hats head to the auction house with their pilots.
In the auction house, Mister Disko is currently moderating the sixth slave.
Duval reassures the distraught Sanji that while the auction has already begun, Camie would surely be sold last as the main attraction. There’s still some time to go. Afterwards, Duval proudly declares that he headed for Grove 1 in the first place, for which Sanji pays homage to him … Until he sees that all the other Tobiuo Riders have already arrived as well.
Franky, Chopper, Nami, Sanji, Hatchan and Pappag discuss the sense and nonsense of human trafficking with the bouncer in front of the auction house door, until Franky gets the idea to blow away half the auction house. Hatchan stops “Weapons Left” because the auction house is also home to World Nobles. Nami then suggests beating them at their own game. She wants to buy Camie back.
Behind the sales stage, another slave is given a sedative after he refuses to be sold. Camie thinks about Hatchan.
Outside the building, Nami estimates the treasure on board to be at least 200 million berries. Hatchan confirms that they could definitely buy Camie with it, but doesn’t know how he’ll ever pay it back. The others assure him that he’s not the only one who’s a friend of Camie. Afterwards, they all enter the auction hall, where the Kid Pirates takes notice of them.
Meanwhile, Luffy, Robin, Usopp, Brook, and Zoro are still on their way to Grove 1.
A leaflet is distributed on Grove 24. Some Supernovae look aghast at the contents of the leaflet. The commander of Whitebeard’s second division – Firefist Ace – is to be executed! X. Drake gets to the heart of the matter: this means war!
