Chapter 594: Message
The Five Elder Stars are having a meeting.
Redline, the holy city of Mariejoa, The Room of the Five Elder Stars
ES1: Well, this Strawhat Luffy
is never short of news is he?
Though oddly understandable, considering he's the grandson of Grap.
ES2: How is he connected with Rayleigh...? I can't believe he is coming back out to the stage of history after all these years.
ES3: And Jinbei is completely turned against us now. We were hoping for him to become the symbol of peace between the races... it's too bad.
ES4: The balace of the three powers is in shambles. How should we fill in the three vacant seats for the Seven Warlords?
ES5: We should wait till the forces in the New World make their moves. Surely the faction territories amongst the pirates will change.
We must choose someone more influential...
ES1:In the New World, Blackbeard is already on his move.
I heard one of those 100million+ rookie was taken out by him already.
ES2: No surprise, he knows Whitebeard's territory very well.
ES3: Amongst the pirates going after Whitebeard's vacant seat, I'd say Blackbeard is leading one stop ahead.
There's never been a person who ate two devil friuts reported in history.
ES4: The only one capable of stoping him would be.... one of the Four Emperors. (rest cut off)
ES5: The "D"s always causes trouble...! Just like Portgas.... (rest cut off)
Meanwhile, in Marine HQ....
Brandnew is reporting Strawhat Luffy's infiltration of Marineford.
Luffy, along with Rayleigh and Jinbei, suddenly appeared at Marineford, and took over a marine ship.
They sailed and circled around Marineford once, in a tradition of "water funeral".
Then Luffy boldly infiltrated the plaza alone, and went to the Ox bell and rang it 16 times.
Then he tossed a bouquet into the ruin of the plaza, and bowed his head in prayer.
At Kong's office, Sengoku is meeting with Kong.
Apparently Sengoku is resigning from his position.
It seems Garp has alrady visited Kong to do the same.
Kong convinced both of them to stay with the marines to train the younglings.
He is saddened to see two marines who led the force at the frontlines since Roger's age stepping down.
Meanwhile, at the medic room, Coby and Helmeppo are recovering.
The doctor tells Coby the symptoms he is suffering is a form of haki.
He explains that Vice Admiral class marines all can use haki.
Coby feels uncomfortable about the "strong presence of others" he is feeling.
The doc tells him to go learn more about haki from Garp, so that he can control it.
Helmeppo seems jealous that Coby is a step ahead of him, and wants to catch up.
At Aokiji's office, Smoker is chatting with Aokiji.
Aokiji wonders what Luffy's "Sixteen Bell" message means.
Smoker doesn't care, and asks him what happened to his request to be transferred.
Aokiji tells Smoker he must be nuts wanting to go to G5. It's infamous for problems.
Marine GS 5th division... otherwise known as the New World outpost.
