One Piece Episode 416


Amazon Lily, Kuja Castle: Luffy is overjoyed that Hancock lends him a ship and he gets off the island. The Kuja pirates will take him to Sabaody Archipelago the next morning. Since Luffy is hungry, Hancock instructs her two sisters to get him a place at the evening’s feast. When asked if she herself will be attending, Hancock only replies in the negative that she is too tired for that and will go to bed early.

Kuja Village, Feast: Luffy wildly gobbles down all the food while the other Amazons look on depressingly and restrained. Behind his back, some Amazons talk about him being able to stretch and would like to touch him. Some other Amazons, however, still distrust Luffy, believing that Hancock has granted him access to the feast so that the Kuja can kill him here if he is not careful. As they pull out their knives and rush at him, Luffy grabs a soup ladle and a pot and calls out to the crowd questioningly as to why they aren’t singing. He begins to sing Binks’ Sake, wiping away any remaining suspicions and doubts the Amazons may have. He celebrates extensively with the Amazons and is even served the island’s specialty – gorgonzola with sea king meat. Behind Luffy, the women flock together and want to touch him, having never met a man before. Nerine even makes a deal out of him, which is why he flees with Marguerite.

Kuja Castle: Hancock collapses unexpectedly.

On the outskirts of the village, Nyon’s house: Luffy and Marguerite are holed up in Nyon’s house. Luffy notices that Nyon is reading the newspaper again. This explains that Boa Hancock is one of The Seven Warlords of the Seas, so she should be at least somewhat informed about what’s going on in the world. Luffy is surprised that Hancock is a samurai. He explains that he doesn’t read the newspaper when Nyon asks him about it. Eleven years ago, Hancock became Empress of Amazon Lily and captain of the Kuja Pirates. After a campaign, she received a bounty of 80,000,000 berries, after which she was offered the title of Samurai of the Seas. Nyon goes on to report the upcoming battle between the Whitebeard pirate gang and the Navy with The Seven Warlords of the Seas – another shock to Luffy. The reason is the announcement of the public execution of Portgas D. Ace in six days. When Luffy asks again who, and gets “Firefist Ace” as the answer, Luffy panickedly explains that it’s his brother, to which Nyon is very shocked. The person responsible was Blackbeard, who turned Ace over to the Navy, thus becoming one of the Seven Samurai.

Nyon explains to Luffy that it would take a normal ship a week to get to the underwater prison Impel Down, where Ace is currently being held. A naval ship, on the other hand, would only need four days. The cause is a spiraling current in the triangle between Impel Down, Enies Lobby, and the Navy Headquarters. At each of these places are gates of justice, as at Enies Lobby, which control access. Only when the gates are opened can you leave the current. Luffy looks at the Vivre Card he received from Ace. It is burned down to 1/10th of its original size. The card shows the owner’s direction and vivre. Luffy remembers Arabasta when Ace handed him the Vivre Card. He has an internal battle and apologizes to his crew in his mind for taking a detour and saving Ace first. Nyon forcefully points out to him the dangers of rescuing Ace. He would just be an ant running into a storm. When Luffy learns from the waiting navy ship that is still waiting for a commitment from Hancock to fight Whitebeard, he wants to go to Hancock to ask her if she can answer the call and then smuggle him onto the ship.

Amazon Lily, Kuja Castle: Hancock lies exhausted in bed. Sitting around her are her two sisters and Belladonna, the doctor. The pirate empress asks if she must die.
