The Straw Hats reach Fishman Island but the crew is separated once again. Welcome to paradise. Summary: Luffy emphatically tells Hammond that he isn't going to serve under the "New Fishman Pirates". As Hammond gets ready to sic his sea monsters on the Straw Hats, Franky activates the Coup de Burst and the Sunny blasts right past the sea monsters and into the giant bubble of Fishman Island. The ship loses its own coating upon going through the first bubble, but crew realize that their speed will carry them through the next bubble layer and into the enclosed waters within the Island. The Sunny bursts through and the crew members are separated by the currents. Luffy wakes up and finds himself being watched over by Sanji, Usopp, Chopper and a quintuplet of small mermaids. It turns out the four Straw Hats were swept into the Mermaid Cove and were saved by the mermaids and brought to Keimi's apartment. With the Straw Hats' clothes dried, Keimi takes Luffy and company outside for a little tour, and during the tour Keimi explains that Hacchin is back in the rough Fishman District while her starfish Pappug is now a rich designer living in the good part of town. Keimi then takes her guests to meet the other mermaids and Sanji is both overjoyed and struggling to stay upright at the same time. While the Straw Hats are taking in their surroundings, a couple of mermaids also wonder about the barrel carrying Caribou. In a place in the Fishman District known as "Noah", Hammond reports to his boss about the Straw Hats, and the boss tells Hammond to bring Luffy to him. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As expected, the Straw Hats escape from Hammond and the sea monsters and make it into Fishman Island, but the crew is separated once again. Luffy's group lucked out (especially Sanji) and made it into the mermaid part of town, but the rest of the crew have probably been swept to the not-so-nice parts of island. Sanji's reactions to all the pretty mermaids were a bit disappointing though. The Newkamas really did a number on him. The New Fishman Pirates seem to be the bad guys for now, but there is another force called the Neptune Army and it sounds like both sides are trying to recruit strong fighters into their groups. The Straw Hats might find themselves in the midst of a power struggle. If it was the usual One Piece, then one side is clearly the bad guys and the Straw Hats will end up helping the good guys, but I wonder what will the Straw Hats do if both sides are equally undesirable.
