This arc is well known for extensive use of plot twists and sudden shifts in the story-line, as well as the serious conflict within the Straw Hat crew. There is some dispute as to how the Water 7 Arc should be categorized, particularly whether the journey on the sea train should be attached to the Water 7 Arc, the Enies Lobby Arcor if it should stand alone. Another is whether or not the Water 7 and Enies Lobby Arcs should be considered separate arcs or not.
After being attacked by Aokijithe crew Turn It Out (Go Base) (Sky King Dub) - Rob Base - Turn It Out (Go Base) fully recovered and has returned to sailing.
Along their way, the crew sees a giant frog doing the crawl stroke and, wanting to eat it, Luffy orders everyone to make the ship follow after it.
They end up on some tracks underwater and are nearly run over by a train traveling on top of the water, and the frog is sent flying by it. They are amazed by this sight. On a nearby station, they meet with a train conductor named Kokoro and her granddaughter Chimneyalong with her pet rabbit who acts like a cat Gonbe. After revealing that the frog, There Wont Be Another Now - Merle Haggard - Love Songsis perfectly fine and that it is always testing its strength against the train, Kokoro explains that the train is a Sea Train that connects several of the nearby islands and is called the Puffing Tom.
She then tells them that the Log Pose will lead them to Water 7a city of shipwrights where they can fix their ship, and tells them to get help from a man named Iceburg. The crew arrives at the city, which resembles a fountain, and sail through the canals in the city looking for a place to dock, but the people are kind enough to tell them where to hide their boat. After stopping, a group of Luffy, Namiand Usopp head out to exchange their gold from Skypiea and find a shipwright, using creatures called yagaras to navigate the Variatio 28 - J.
S. Bach* - Goldberg Variantionen. Later, Robin and Chopper leave to look around, and Sanji goes by himself to do the same, leaving Zoro on the ship. While Chopper goes into a book store, a masked man walks past Robin and simply says "CP9", Confirmation - Bud Powell - The Complete Bud Powell On Verve her in shock.
When Chopper comes out, Robin is gone. Meanwhile, several bounty hunters come onto the Going Merry to claim the bounty on the crew, but they underestimate Zoro's power and are quickly defeated. Luffy's group manages to exchange the gold for , and they go to Dock One of the Galley-La Company.
There, they meet Kakuone of the foremen, who reveals that Iceburg is the mayor of Water 7 and the president of Galley-La. Kaku does not know where he is, so he decides to inspect their ship in the meantime, using immense speed and leaping capabilities to Out In The Fields - The Michael Schenker Group - Heavy Hitters across the city.
Just after he leaves, Iceburg and his secretary, Kalifaintroduce themselves to the three and he agrees to work on their 1. Allegro Maestoso - Lang Lang - Its Me - The Piano Concertos. However, as they are about to enter the dock, the crew finds that all of their money is gone, and they see it being taken by several people.
Luckily, at that moment, another foreman, Pauliewas running from tax collectors and knocked the robbers off of their yagara bulls, but was about to use the money to pay his debt before another foreman, Rob Luccistopped him.
Iceburg reveals that the thieves and the men who attacked Zoro are known as the Franky Familya gang of dismantlers that bounty hunt and steal on the side, and are led by a powerful man named Franky. Meanwhile, Sanji sees Robin with the masked man from before, but when they turn the corner he finds that they are gone.
He later meets up with Chopper and they start looking for Robin. Meanwhile, in Dock One, while Usopp is separated from the group, he is attacked by the Franky Family and the , he had were taken. Kaku returns from his inspection of the ship and reveals a startling fact—the Going Merry is impossible to fix. Since the keel is broken, trying to fix it would be no different from making a new ship entirely.
Though Luffy complains about this, Iceburg tells him to think about it for a while. The empty suitcases containing the money Usopp carried are found, and they conclude the Franky Family is the cause, so Luffy rushes off aimlessly into the city while Nami heads back to the ship after finding out about the location of their headquarters from the Galley-La workers. On the way, however, Nami finds Usopp bloody and battered on the street, who shows deep regret about letting them take the money.
She leaves him there for now so she can get everyone else and explains the situation to the others, including Sanji and Chopper who had returned to the ship. At Franky Housethe dismantlers' headquarters, the stolen money is presented to Franky himself, who reveals that the amount will be enough to buy what they've always wanted, and leaves his gang a bunch of money to party with. As he is about to leave, the door explodes as Usopp walks in demanding that he gives the money back.
After a failed attempt to attack Franky, the others gang up on Usopp. The other Straw Hats go to where Usopp was, but all they can find is bloody footsteps as Luffy falls from the sky. After he explains that he was trying to leap across the city like Kaku, he is told the situation. The four battle the Franky Family, destroying the building, but they find that Franky already left with most of the money.
At this point, Luffy decides to abandon the Going Merry and buy a new ship. At the Going Merry, Usopp's wounds are treated and the news is broken to him that they will change ships. At first, Usopp thinks they are joking but when its confirmed to be true, he asks if it's because he lost the money, but Luffy insists that the money would not have made any difference and the ship can no longer sail. Usopp gets angry and insists that the Going Merry is just as much of a crewmate as everyone else, yelling Thine Alone - Roger Wagner Chorale* - Victor Herbert On Stage Luffy would trust strangers he met just that day and abandon a friend that was with them from the beginning.
Luffy insists that he thought long and hard to make the decision and that if Usopp does not like the way he captains then he should just leave. Sanji manages to get Luffy to calm down and the captain apologizes for what he said, but Usopp says those were his true feelings and states that if they are going to abandon Merry they'll have to leave him behind too.
As Usopp leaves the ship, with everyone else looking on tearfully, he turns around and challenges My Boy Willie - Kathleen Ferrier - Blow The Wind Southerly - British Songs to a duel over control of the ship at that night.
On the ship, Nami tries to convince Luffy to resolve the matter with words, but Luffy points out that Usopp is not the type to arbitrarily put his life on the line for things he did not strongly believe in. Once he issued the challenge, there was no turning back. Meanwhile, Sanji yells at Zoro for letting the Franky Family escape after they attacked him, because if they did not steal the money from Usopp none Here To Hear - Jaki Byard - Giant Steps this would have happened, but Nami gets them to calm down.
True to his word at ten o'clock that night Usopp came back to the ship for his duel. The fight begins and Usopp mostly uses his weaker attacks like the Shinsen Tamago Boshi and Usopp Spellbut at it turns out these were simply to set up for several brand new attacks. Usopp reveals that his strategy is to not even give Luffy a chance to attack and manages to get in several damaging hits in, though Luffy manages to hit him with a Gomu Gomu no Pistol. After being hit by a humongous explosion caused by shooting a Kaen Boshi into a cloud of explosive gas stored in UFO Amen Remix - Lisbeth & Bent - The Amenathon Breath Dial, Luffy charges towards Usopp while doing his Gomu Gomu no Bazooka attack, but his foe absorbs the blow into his Impact Dial.
Usopp then hits Luffy with the full force of his own attack, thinking he won, but Luffy manages to land on his feet and brings Usopp down with a Gomu Gomu no Bullet. Despite being the winner, Luffy lets Usopp have the Going Merry and has the rest of the crew leave the ship. The next morning, the entire city is in a frenzy with news that Iceburg was shot. Upon hearing this at the hotel they are staying in, Luffy and Nami decided to see the mayor while the others keep looking for Robin.
As it turns Take Your Pill (Sascha Müller Remix) - DJ LEmbrouille - Netlabel Mix 2007 Week 14, the other Franky Family members were hoping their boss would want to avenge them and were keeping tabs on the pirates. They tell Franky that Luffy is heading for Dock One.
Meanwhile, Iceburg manages to wake up and identify his attackers—one was a large man wearing a mask, while the other was Nico Robin of the Straw Hat Pirates.
At the same time, it is announced around the town that Aqua Laguna, an annual high tide that engulfs the lower part of the city is coming, so Kokoro, Chimney, and her rabbit come to Water 7.
At Dock One, Franky attacks Luffy with a flame attack, Turn It Out (Go Base) (Sky King Dub) - Rob Base - Turn It Out (Go Base) the two pirates to believe he's a Devil Fruit user, until he jumps straight into the canal and attacks from there. After trading several more attacks, Franky reveals that he's a cyborg, a human with robotic parts. Before the fight can go on for much longer, however, the Galley-La foremen intervene.
At first, Luffy and Nami think they are helping fend off Franky, but then they start attacking Luffy. They reveal that the Straw Hat Pirates are behind the assassination attempt and are trying to arrest Luffy. After much fighting, with Luffy not fighting back, Franky gets tired of everyone ignoring him and unleashes his ultimate attack, Coup de Vent, to destroy the entire dock.
Luffy and Nami take this chance to escape and Luffy decides to see if Iceburg was telling the truth about Robin being his attacker. Meanwhile, the Galley-La workers search through the town for the other crewmates and the Iceburg's statement is printed in all of the newspapers.
At the company's headquarters, and where Iceburg lives, Luffy breaks in and rushes around the building looking for the mayor's room, avoiding the attacks of the shipwrights there. Iceburg hears about this and has Kalifa lead Luffy to his room. When the two meet, Iceburg confirms that he really saw Nico Robin and then pulls out a gun, requesting that Luffy let him see her.
Luffy says that he has no idea where she is and Iceburg shoots, attracting the attention of the other workers, though Luffy manages to escape before they get there. Meanwhile, Chopper and Sanji find Robin. Robin explains that there is a darkness in her heart that will engulf the rest of the crew if she stays any longer and declares that she is leaving. Sanji tells Chopper to go back and tell everyone what happened, but he has something else he needs to do.
Luffy, Zoro, Nami, and Chopper gather together and reach the conclusion that Robin may be being forced to do everything by the man in the mask, but Zoro points out that it would not be good to have false Turn It Out (Go Base) (Sky King Dub) - Rob Base - Turn It Out (Go Base).
Either way, they conclude that there will be another attack that night and they should confront her there. Meanwhile, Franky decides to bring Luffy out of hiding by kidnapping Usopp and stealing the ship. In the Galley-La headquarters, Iceburg calls Paulie into his room to tell him something, and afterwards Paulie leaves his guard post to go into another room, opening a hidden safe.
The four remaining Straw Hats gather outside of headquarters hiding in a tree, observing the building for any events out of the ordinary when there is a huge explosion. At that point, several masked men in costumes including Robin rush into the building, who the workers assume are Straw Hat pirates.
While the female assassin distracts the guard, showing incredible speed and the ability to jump while airborne, the man with Robin, wearing a bear mask, manages to enter Iceburg's room from the side using his Doa Doa no Mi. He shoots Iceburg to weaken him, stating that they cannot kill him until they get the signal, and leaves him to Robin while he handles the guards.
The bear masked man easily takes care of the foreman Tilestone, demonstrating an ability to make his body as hard as metal. At this point, Iceburg reveals the identities of the attackers—they are the government agency Cipher Pol 9, who intentionally failed in the first assassination attempt in order to place the blame on the Straw Hats, and they are after the blueprints for the ancient weapon Plutonwhich Iceburg owns through inheritance from the great shipwright Tom.
Meanwhile, Zoro, Nami, and Chopper break into the building, thinking that Luffy would have distracted all of the guards by aimlessly rushing in, only to find themselves surrounded. Meanwhile, Paulie pulls blueprints out of Iceburg's safe only to encounter two men in a bull and skull mask.
Paulie attacks them only to be beaten easily, but as it turns out the blueprints are fake. At this time, however, Luffy manages to get free and breaks into the room only to be caught off guard by the powers of CP9, which include the ability to fire an "air blade" from their legs.
Luffy and Paulie are pinned to the ground, but after talking for a bit, Luffy manages to squeeze himself out and release Paulie. Meanwhile, Zoro fends off the shipwrights using the backs of his swords and the three make their way upstairs. In Iceburg's room, the four CP9 agents reveal their identities—the foremen Lucci and Kaku, the secretary Kalifa, and the bar owner Blueno.
Turn It Out (Go Base) (Sky King Dub) - Rob Base - Turn It Out (Go Base) Kaku checks Iceburg's pulse, Lucci who, as it turns out, can speak normally gives his theory as to what happened to the Pluton blueprints.
It was assumed that Iceburg was the last apprentice of the shipwright Tom and inherited the blueprints as a result, since reports said that his other apprentice, Cutty Flam, died when he was run over Turn It Out (Go Base) (Sky King Dub) - Rob Base - Turn It Out (Go Base) the Sea Train. However, Cutty Flam is not actually dead—he continues to live in the city to this very day under the name Franky.
