One Piece Episode 398


Sabaody Archipelago, Outlaw Zone: News of Luffy’s attack on Saint Charlos makes the rounds. The Supernovae make preparations to leave.

Mary Geoise: Grand Admiral Sengoku is briefed accurately regarding the situation on the archipelago. After a brief conversation, Admiral Kizaru himself decides that he will take care of it. Likewise, he promises that the matter will not take long.

Sabaody Archipelago, Grove 1, Backstage: Disko sits in panic in front of a Den-den Mushi and asks for help in his turn. He talks to the owner of the human trafficking auction house: Donquixote Doflamingo! But he has no interest in showing up on the archipelago, swears off human trafficking and gives Disko the auction house as a gift. Disko is horrified and fears additional trouble from Rosward’s family coming his way. Doflamingo now tells Disko that the new era is coming soon, as the Samurai of the Seas have been called together to fight the Whitebeard gang!

Outside the auction hall: The marines keep the onlookers from entering the building as they prepare to storm the auction house. It is reported to the lead officer that Admiral Kizaru is on his way and that he is bringing special “troops”, which leaves the officer astonished.

Pappag, Chopper and Brook warn Rayleigh not to unbuckle Camie’s collar just like that. This is dangerous, they say, and will result in detonation. Rayleigh just advises Camie to hold still and unfastens the collar, which starts making noises. Rayleigh throws the collar away, which then explodes as well. Camie is free, while Franky just comes up with all the keys he found backstage. The Straw Hat Pirates admires Rayleigh, who had used his bare hands to release the collar. Franky then tosses the keys to the other slaves, who are able to break free.

The Straw Hats are now wondering how Rayleigh did all this. Hatchan says that this is “Haki” but doesn’t know anything else about it either. Rayleigh now addresses the Straw Hats, Law and the Kid. Since they all survived the aura, they can’t be amateurs, after all. Kid then identifies Rayleigh as well and asks what a legend like him would be doing here. Rayleigh replies that he would only be known here as “Coater Ray” and that they shouldn’t use his real name carelessly. Rayleigh thanks the Straw Hats for saving Hatchan’s life and puts off talking to Luffy until later. First, they should worry about getting out of this situation healthy.

Outside the hall: Via loudspeaker the pirates are asked to release Rosward and his family. Likewise, it is mentioned that an admiral is on the way. Kid and Law realize that Luffy put them in this situation as well. Kid just thinks that Luffy really is as crazy as people everywhere are hearing. Rayleigh notes that he won’t be using his powers anymore because no one should notice who he really is. It would now be up to the supernovae themselves. The Kid comes off as arrogant, stating that his crew will already take care of the Marine. He doesn’t want the others to worry. Law and Luffy don’t seem to like this at all.

The navy watches the entrance of the hall and spots the pirates coming out. They realize that they are three captains with large bounties on their heads. Luffy doesn’t want the others’ help, while Law Kid threatens to take him out first if he wants to figure this one out on his own.

Nami thinks all three captains are simple-minded. Usopp wants to come up with an escape plan, while Sanji and Zoro are eager to get out the door as well. Rayleigh then tells Zoro to have the Straw Hats meet him at Grove 13. Zoro confirms this. The giant also wants to save his fellow prisoners, saying that he is in debt to Rayleigh and the Straw Hats.

In front of the auction house, the pirates are now being shot at with mortars. Luffy blocks the cannonballs with a gum-gum balloon, while the Kid sends them back at the marines with Repel. Law forms a circle around himself, the cannonballs, and a soldier, then swaps the soldier’s head with the cannonball via Room Shambles! The commanding officer realizes that cannons have no effect on the three because they all ate devil fruit. Despite this realization, the marines want to keep shooting at them. The Kid wants to hold Luffy and Law back and shows arrogance, but Luffy is already charging again. Using the gum-gum net, he catches the cannonballs and hurls them back. Law and the Kid are amazed at Luffy’s ability. Luffy is able to dodge further attacks and takes out the marines with a gum-gum whip. The marines continue to attack despite this setback, but Kid uses his devil powers to build a giant arm from the marines’ weapons and attacks them. Luffy now also wonders about the abilities of his two fellow pirates.
