Chapter 642: Reputation ruined
cover art is the Straw Hats trying to get on a fish-bus headed for the mermaid beach
The chapter opens a few minutes back at the forest of sea
Den tells Hachi and Camie that the fish and whales in the area are leaving, sensing something wrong
Hachi says if they fought face to face, the Straw Hats and Jinbe would easily win against Hody, but Hody will never break his will… That’s what brother Tai was afraid of!!
At Coral Hill, Watermill Town, and Coral Mansion the residents are ordered to evacuate.
To each area news reach that Decken threw Noah, and Princess Shirahoshi is fleeing as bait.
The ministers and soldiers arrive in front of king Neptune. The news of evacuation reaches them.
They tell the king to flee with them, but he tells them he’ll wait for the Princes to return
The Right-minister and soliders arrive at the plaza, and grasps the situation from the shape the plaza is in, and the information given from the residents
He says the reptuation of the kingdoms is ruined, if it is saved by the very pirates they framed.
He orders the soldiers to at least support them in their cause with respect.
He orders the onlooking residents to evacuate away from the island, but they refuse. (especially women and children)
They say they are the one who asked the Straw Hats for help, they will follow the same fate as them.
In the Plaza Hammond is making the slave human pirates carry him on their back, just like how Celestial Dragons treated their slaves.
The pirates who couldn’t carry him on the back anymore were dragged away, and replaced by other humans
Robin comments on his cruelty
The Kraken got even bigger with Hissatsu Mega-Nyuudou, and even increased his size even more after Sanji taunted him.
His size increase causes many enemies to be crushed near him
(T may be mistaken the Kraken with Wadatsumi. Wadatsumi is a Nyuudou, not the Kraken)
Jinbe asks Robin is she can save the human pirates. He can’t stand seeing Hody’s men acting like the Celestial Dragons
Ikaros vs Franky
Ikaros uses a move called Wings of Ikaros, but it’s just a spit.
Franky shoots a fireball out of his stomack, Chopper is elated to see it. Btw, Franky himself shot the fireball (from the stomack of the robot)
Chopper seems perfectly fine fighting against Dossun. He counters the hammer attacks with Heavy Gong.
When Chopper turns human form (the one closest to human form he had) it’s now the size of Hody.
Zoro comments how monstrous Chopper’s become, but to that Chopper replies: I wanted to be a human before so I could have friends!! But now, I want to be a monster so I can help Luffy!!
Zoro laughs, and simply says “I see”
Hyozo attacks, wanting to slice those who are laughing… but Zoro breaks nine of his swords in one slash.
Zoro: And I even gave you chance to get out of my range(*)… why don’t you bring me the strongest swordsman in Fishman Island!! You’re too boring for my time!
* (T spelled kekkai wrong, but it may be Zoro’s new move. “Kekkai”, used like kekkai (結界 zone) but spelled Kekkai (決壊 collapse). Probably just a mis-spelling though lol)
