The first round of their fight ends with Brook leaving Black Maria to Robin, while he handles the other subordinates and followers of Black Maria.
Luffy Asked Momonosuke’s Help
At Tokage Port, Luffy was seen eating all the meat that the crew members of the Heart Pirates gave him. While he already devoured all the meat, it’s still not enough to regain all of his strength. He asked for more food but the Heart Pirates already gave her all of their stocks.
Meanwhile, Caribou has reappeared in the series while he was watching Momonosuke and Luffy from afar. Upon hearing that Luffy wants more food, it seems that Caribou will start looking for food as he believes that if Luffy loses, he can’t leave the country.
The manga chapter ends with Luffy asking Momonosuke’s aid. Given that they already fall down from the flying island, Luffy asked the heir of the Kozuki family to transform into his dragon form and fly back to Onigashima.
