Luffy and his friends now bid farewell to Skypiea and head back to the Blue Sea via Cloud End. On the flight down, they are caught by a giant squid that looks like a hot air balloon and clutches the The Going Merry tightly with its tentacles. Luffy grows bored and bounces around on the squid until it finally loses air and the The Going Merry plummets down at breakneck speed as a result. Luckily, Usopp manages to stop the fall at the last second with some wind dials and our friends make it back to the Grand Line safe and sound. Night falls and all seems well, but suddenly they are illuminated by huge spotlights.
