Luffy salvages a chest filled with gold and jewels from one of the shipwrecks, but a distant voice tells him to return the treasure and leave the mist. Usopp believes the voices to be ghosts, but they actually originate from a group of children who call themselves the Pumpkin Pirates. In his youth, Henzo was a member of this group, and they are the reason for his research. He spent his life in search of a means to rescue them from the Rainbow Mist. Only a short time earlier from their point of view, but fifty years earlier from Henzo's perspective, a group of pirates, led by a Captain Whetton, attacked the children's town. When Whetton came after the children, they tried to escape by stealing the pirates' ship. During the fight, Whetton smashed the ship's helm, and Henzo jumped overboard, taking Whetton with him, while the other children sailed into the mist.

The Straw Hats persuade one of the children to lead them to the Pumpkin Pirates' hiding place so they can ask them for a way out. Usopp prepares a steaming meal, which causes most of the children to like the Straw Hats; however, their leader, Lapanui, remains suspicious and unwilling to help. Henzo's snail-o-phone rings and the son of Whetton wants Henzo to investigate the mist, not knowing that the professor is already inside the mist.

Then, for no apparent reason, Luffy slingshots himself and Lapanui to another part of the mist. At the harbor, Nami ties a long lifeline, prepared by Henzo, to a boat and enters the Rainbow Mist. Once inside, Ian, who convinced one of the children to release him, steals the boat and escapes. He reaches Whetton and describes to him the mist's treasures. Whetton orders his men to invade the mist. The town's large tower falls into the water, creating a bridge from the island into the mist, and Whetton and his men cross it to attack.

There, Luffy fights Whetton and, as it becomes clear that he cannot defeat Luffy face-to-face, Whetton detonates the tower, trapping everyone else inside and Whetton's abandoned men join forces with Luffy's group. An exit appears in the distance and they row toward it, but it closes too fast for them to reach it. Hoping to generate enough wind to blow the Straw Hats' ship clear of the mist, Lapanui stays behind to destroy the navy ship's armory. The other children follow him, promising to meet Henzo again. The explosion they cause successfully blows the Straw Hats' ship outside the mist. There, a group of navy ships, led by an aged Lapanui, arrives and confiscates the Rainbow Mist's treasures from Whetton and takes him and his men into custody.

The Straw Hats and their allies are about to reach Enies Lobby. Galley-La foreman Paulie sketches the island's terrain and explains that, to save Robin, the crew must reach her before she passes through the Gate of Justice. Because the Straw Hats are the only ones capable of matching the CP9 in combat, the Franky Family and the Galley-La foremen plan to charge in first and open the island's gates to allow the Straw Hats to rush in riding the sea train. As Enies Lobby draws near, the gigantic Gate of Justice appears in the sky behind it. While his crewmates and allies gaze in awe, Luffy ignores the plan and strides past the first of the gates.

All goes smoothly at first, but by the time the Franky Family's main force reaches the second gate, the marines have called for help. The giants Oimo and Kāshī, the island's front gate gatekeepers, take up their posts. Overmatched in strength and size, the Franky Family send their best fighters, the Kairiki Destroyers. However, even these overly large humans can do little against the giants' power and are quickly defeated. On the other side of the gate, Luffy faces the collective might of Enies Lobby's 10,000 men.
Sunday, June 11th, 2006
40: Battle with the Giants! Open the Second Door!
The Galley-La foremen and the leading members of the Franky Family arrive late at the second gate because they had to mount the Franky Family's king bulls, sea dwelling animals that look like sea horses, on caterpillar tracks. Combining forces, they manage to pin down Kāshī against a wall. Then, taunting Oimo, they goad him into hitting his partner in the face, knocking Kāshī unconscious. In the Tower of Justice, Spandam receives an incomplete report about Luffy, which leads him to believe that the enemy captain is not a threat. Lucci's party arrives and the CP9 celebrate their reunion with petty bickering and a contest of strength. Meanwhile, Luffy, defying resistance, makes his way towards the Courthouse Plaza.

Robin and Franky are brought before Spandam, while Luffy blasts through waves of marines. The Galley-La foremen and the Franky Family eventually slip by Oimo and open the second gate. However, their joy is short-lived, as a group of marines closes the first gate behind them. To overcome the unanticipated obstacle, Zoro changes the plan. Yokozuna bends the island's outside fence downward. Using it as a ramp, the sea train jumps over both of the gates and crash lands into Oimo's back, finishing him off, and concluding everyone's arrival at the main island. As the elite group—called Law's Watch Dog Unit—enters the fight on the side of the marines, the battle escalates in intensity.

42: Catch Up with Luffy! The Straw Hat Pirates' All-Out War
The Straw Hats struggle to catch up with Luffy, but get caught up in impeding each other's efforts; Sanji and Zoro indulge themselves in petty bickering and Nami injures her crewmates by testing her newly improved weapon. The streets appear empty, abandoned by the men who were fighting Luffy. Just then, the Law's Watch Dog Unit and a large group of other men step into their way. A fight seems inevitable until their allies, riding the king bulls, arrive. Paulie uses his ropes to pull the crew onto the back of one of the large animals.

Sunday, July 2nd, 2006
44: Give Robin Back! Luffy vs. Blueno!
Oimo explains to Sogeking about how he and Kāshī came to support the marines—the marines told them that they arrested their bosses. The story reminds Sogeking of the giants Dorry and Broggy, whom the Straw Hats met shortly after entering the Grand Line. Sodom the king bull incurs severe damage and urges the Straw Hats riding him to continue without him. Quickly, they board Sodom's brother Gomorrah and continue on. Atop of the courthouse, the fight between Blueno and Luffy begins. Luffy throws the first punch and seems far less inferior than during their last encounter.

45: Don't Stop! Raise the Signal Fire of a Counterattack!
Kokoro and her granddaughter Chimeney contact the Straw Hats by means of Nami's portable transponder snail phone. They inform them of Luffy's location and instruct them on how to lower the courthouse's drawbridge. The Franky Family decides to lower it. Just then, the second of Enies Lobby's elite units enters the battle. One of the Guilty Jurymen throws his massive iron ball at Gomorrah, knocking him down. Behind them, Sogeking is riding to the courthouse on the shoulders of one of the giants with whom he has managed to ally. Gomorrah, arising again despite severe injury, tells those riding him to hold on as he plans to take them to their destination. Inside the Tower of Justice, Kaku and Kalifa hesitatingly eat the devil fruits that Spandam has given them.
Sunday, July 23rd, 2006
46: Luffy is in Sight! Gather at the Courthouse Plaza
Although Gomorrah was blinded, he continues on. Sanji and Zoro crush a building in the king bull's path and the party arrives at the courthouse. On the other side of the drawbridge, Spandam is brought a transponder snail phone with an urgent report. Confident that he will only be told of the Straw Hats' capture, he allows Robin and Franky to listen in, letting them know of their rescuers' success. In front of the courthouse, Zoro cuts open the building's immense stone door. The Franky Family split into three groups, two of which storm the drawbridge towers to reach the levelers at their tops.

On the main road, the giants have defeated the Law's Watch Dog Unit, and with Sogeking and the Galley-La foremen are heading for the plaza. Luffy defeats Blueno, steps past his unconscious body, and cries out for Robin to hear that he has arrived.

48: Answer Us, Robin! The Outcries of the Straw Hat Crew!!
Franky cannot understand why Robin refuses to be saved after Spandam broke his promise. While Luffy yells in the background, Franky decides to make Robin face him. He uses his remaining cola to inflate his buttocks and with a giant flatus shoots himself and Robin outside, onto the balcony, and into Luffy's sight, breaking his chains in the process. Luffy wants to slingshot himself over the waterfall to rescue Robin, but she tells him to stay and that only she wants to die. In front of the courthouse, Yokozuna succumbs to the jurymen's attacks. The marines are about to pour in as the giants arrive and assume control of the position. Kāshī throws Sogeking onto the courthouse, where he joins the assembling Straw Hats. Gathering on the battlements, they face Robin and the CP9, while they wait for the drawbridge to be lowered.

Twenty years into the past, Robin is growing up on the island of Ohara. Her aunt, with whom she lives while her mother is away doing research, treats her poorly. Other children ostracize her. Studying in the world's greatest library, the Tree of Omniscience, in the hopes of being allowed to help the local archaeologists in their forbidden research, Robin earns the rank of a scholar in archaeology at age eight. However, when she announces her intention to help, her request is denied because of her youth. Disappointed at being rejected again, she walks along the shore, where she stumbles on Jaguar D. Saulo, a giant and deserted vice-admiral of the navy. The two become friends and Saulo teaches her to laugh.

Olvia, who returned to the island on a stolen navy ship, hurries to the Tree of Omniscience to warn her colleges of a coming navy fleet. However, she is too late. The government ship that carried Spandam's father Spandaine and his men has already arrived. They frighten the island's population into boarding an evacuation ship, while the government soldiers arrest the scholars and search the library. Professor Clover, Robin's mentor, urges Robin to board the evacuation ship, but she refuses. As it becomes clear that the scholars will not be forgiven for their forbidden research, Clover asks to be allowed to speak to the heads of the government, known as the Five Elder Stars.
Sunday, September 24th, 2006
51: Tragedy of Ohara! Fear of Buster Call!
Professor Clover is allowed to speak with one of the Elder Stars and reports of their research. He describes a civilization that existed hundreds of years ago and vanished at the time that the world government assumed power. He considers the collective evidence, which leads him to believe that the governemt tried to erase their former enemies from history. After stating that Ohara has learned too much, the Elder Star orders Spandaine to kill the professor and to give the order to destroy the island. Suddenly, the library is set aflame; while the scholars try to save the books, Robin admits to being an archeologist and unites with her mother. However, their union does not last long. Around them, cannon shots from the Buster Call's battleships start to hail down and Olvia sends her daughter off with Saulo to flee the island, while she joins the effort to save the library's knowledge.

52: Say You Want to Live! We are Comrades!!!
Saulo fights the battleships, attempting to allow Robin to escape. She tries to board the evacuation ship, but per Spandaine's orders, she is denied access.

While they fight, the evacuation ship is sunk by the fanatical Vice-Admiral Sakazuki, later known as Admiral Akainu. Saulo, on the verge of dying, instructs Robin to flee on his raft. Persuaded by Saulo's argument and Sakazuki's action, Kuzan helps Robin escape. From then on, Robin lives a life on the run, not being able to trust even the kindest of people, in a world that believes that her existence alone is a sin. In the present, Robin admits her greatest fear: to be seen as a burden by her crewmates and cast away, because being with her means having the world as their enemy. Finally knowing what kept her away, Sogeking, on Luffy's order, burns the government's flag, declaring war.

Franky had hidden the blueprints for the ancient weapon Pluton within his body. He shows them to the CP9, explaining that they were only kept in existence so that an opposing force could be constructed in case the other ancient weapons still in existence were revived by Robin. Having realized that she is not the demon that rumors characterized her as, he bets the world's fate on the Straw Hats ability to rescue her and burns the blueprints. Enraged, Spandam throws Franky off the balcony. Kokoro runs Rocketman up the half-lowered drawbridge. The Straw Hats, informed via transponder snail phone, jump aboard.

Zoro and Kaku engage in an intense sword fight. Directly beneath them, Sogeking fails to steal a key from the sleeping CP9 assassin Jyabura.

Franky barely saves himself from falling down by grabbing onto Fukurou's leg with his extendable arm. Unable to shake off his opponent, Fukurou is forced to use his air-walking technique to drag both of them towards land. As they close in on the Tower of Justice, he attempts to crush Franky into it. However, Franky is prepared, and holds onto his opponent with his dividable legs and uses his air pressure cannon to propel him flying into the ground.

64: Uncontrollable! Chopper's Forbidden Rumble
Chopper's breather concludes as Kumadori frees himself from the fridge, apparently after he finished eating its contents. At first, he is fat, but he digests all the food immediately and is slim again. Fascinated, Chopper asks how he did it. Kumadori willingly explains. Afterwards, the two resume their fight where it had stopped. Chopper quickly realizes that he cannot break through Kumadori's body-hardening technique without the effect of his Rumble Ball drug. Having used a first while rescuing Nami, he dares not use a second out of fear of its side effects. Nevertheless, he takes it. Chopper charges repeatedly, but his transformations are erratic and difficult to control. By the time he assumes the correct form, he is too weak and is struck down. Left with one choice, he steps into the forbidden realm of taking a third Rumble Ball.

67: Bubble User Kalifa! Nami Draws Near to the Soap's Trap
Having taken three Rumble Balls, Chopper transforms into an oversized and purely instinct driven version of himself. Kumadori goes all out to defeat his enemy, but in the end cannot succeed. In Kalifa's room, Nami lies helplessly on the ground, watching her opponent casually bathing. Slowly, the strength returns to her limbs while Kalfi redresses. Shortly into their fight, Nami discovers the essence of Kalifa's new ability. Being a soap woman, she can create a foam that washes away anything, even a person's strength. Chopper goes on a rampage and, with Franky on his heels, climbs the tower's outside walls. Having crossed the underground passage, Luffy finally catches up to Lucci.

On the Courthouse Plaza, the marines defeat Oimo and Kāshī and capture the Straw Hats' allies in the courthouse. Almost on the Bridge of Hesitation, which leads through the Gate of Justice, Spandam tries to contact the CP9 members at the tower, but accidentally invokes a Buster Call, causing ten battleships and five vice-admirals to be dispatched to Enies Lobby from the nearby navy headquarters.

69: 5 Namis? Counterattack with the Mirage!
Lucci and Luffy begin their mutually anticipated duel, while Nami and Kalifa's fight enters the next phase. Both combatants have scouted out each other's abilities. Kalifa attempts to finish Nami off. Just then, Chopper, in his monstrous form, crushes through the wall and enters the fight. He does not recognize Nami, just as he did not recognize Franky. As he goes through the room, he rips out Kalifa's large bathing tub and throws it downstairs, where the immobilized Sanji is sitting. Nami is deeply worried about Chopper, but before she can help him, she has to finish her fight. The torn up water pipes sprinkling the room's air provide a possible advantage for her.

70: Nami's Determination! Shoot the Rampaging Chopper!
The fight between Nami and Kalifa climaxes. Kalifa sweeps the room with a tidal wave of power-draining bubbles to counter Nami's illusions. Barely escaping, Nami manages to prepare and release her finishing blow in the form of a horizontal lighting bolt. Franky, who had followed Chopper in climbing up the walls of the Tower of Justice, arrives as she is about to retrieve Kalifa's key. A moment's discussion later, they conceive of a plan. They follow Chopper into the room where Zoro and Sogeking, still cuffed together, try to fight Kaku and Jyabura. There, Franky uses his air pressure cannon to blast Chopper outside and into the sea, while Nami uses Kalifa's key to release Zoro and Sogeking from their shackles.

Chimeney and Gonbe appear outside the secret passage and lead him to Kokoro and the underground tunnel. In the last remaining fight at the Tower of Justice, Zoro and Kaku exchange heavy blows, while Jyabura takes on Sogeking and Nami. The latter fight ends quickly, as Jyabura, holding the unmoving body of Sogeking, aims his killing blow. Just then, Sanji, freed from the influence of Kalifa's power by the water of the bathtub that Chopper had thrown downstairs earlier, steps in, taking his place in the fight.

Nami drags the wounded Sogeking from the fighting zone. As she is on the verge of going downstairs, Sogeking has an idea. Meanwhile, Sanji starts exchanging blows with Jyabura, who sends him flying into the hallway. Continuing their fight there, Jyabura tries in vain to trick Sanji with a made-up story of being Robin's long-lost brother. The battle seems even, until the wolf-man gains the upper hand over his opponent with well-placed blows. Realizing that he is on the losing side, Sanji resolves to use his newest technique. He spins around until his leg starts glowing red with heat, and defeats Jyabura in a fierce mid-air final.

On the other side of the raging waters, on the Bridge of Hesitation, Spandam continues to drag Robin along. Fear strikes her as the end of the bridge, which for her marks the point of no return, comes into sight. She pulls herself free and runs away. Spandam pursues and recaptures her, but she holds on to the rim of the bridge with her teeth. Below them, Franky tries in vain to force his way past the much more powerful Lucci. As Franky is on the verge of being killed, Luffy activates Gear Second and attacks Lucci, allowing Fanky to slip by.

75: Spandam's Shock! A Hero Stands on the Tower of Justice
Having loosened Robin's tooth grip on the bridge's rim, Spandam ties a rope around her waist and pulls her further along; during this, he constantly insults her and proudly tells her that Spandaine, the man who had caused her so much suffering, is his father. A stream of tears runs down her cheeks as her time runs out. Just then, and seemingly out of nowhere, an explosive projectile hits the back of Spandam's head. A stream of projectiles falls on the marines gathered around him. Outside the range of normal guns, Sogeking is shooting at them, standing on top of the Tower of Justice.

The resulting loud noise created reaches Luffy and Lucci beneath the Bridge of Hesitation.

Instead of finding a means of escape, however, they are greeted by the cannon muzzles of three of the Buster Call's battleships.

The voice had come from the Straw Hats' ship, the Going Merry. Sanji is the first to go aboard. To his surprise, nobody is there. The ship had made it from Water 7 to Enies Lobby on its own. The Straw Hats have little time to spare because the battleships have already taken aim at the tiny ship that has snuck in between them. They fire a salvo, almost from point-blank range, but miss. While absent earlier, Sanji found the control room for the Gate of Justice and set it to close. The large gate in its original position creates whirl streams strong enough to disturb the battleships' aim as well as their ability to maneuver, which allows the Straw Hats to escape.

When the Straw Hats arrive at the coast, Iceburg shows them the ship, but Franky cannot be found.

On the other side of the island, Franky's men literally take the matter into their own hands: they steal Franky's beloved jammer-style swimsuit and attempt to lure him to the Straw Hats by passing it back and forth to each other. Midway, Sanji and Zoro seize him, put him into the Franky Family's shoot-anything-cannon, and have him shot in front of the new ship.

Franky's followers bring him his luggage. He rejects it, telling them to stay out of his affairs. During this series of events, Franky cries, apparently from the pain inflicted by Robin, who had stopped some time ago. Sanji and Zoro arrive in a hurry, reporting that Garp has returned and is on his way to capture them. Luffy then returns the swimsuit to Franky, who subsequently agrees to join the crew.

While the Straw Hats fend of the cannonballs, Usopp arrives at the coast and tries to rejoin the crew as if nothing happened.

Outside, Vice Admiral Bastille finished explaining to an officer about what happened in the colosseum as this was the work of not Cavendish, but his alter ego Hakuba, a dangerous man who eluded the marines years ago for his dangerous technique. At the Palace, Doflamingo is standing before King Riku who is chained up. Doflamingo gloated that Viola's hope of the Straw Hats defeating him and freeing Law is worthless, as he had full confidence that his men will prevent them from breaching his operations and believes that Luffy is still trapped in the colosseum.
