On the Torino Kingdom, an island inhabited by giant birds and humans, Chopper, the doctor of the Straw Hats, is preparing to depart as well. He receives a newspaper from a News Coo and is stunned by what he reads. He decides to hurry back to Luffy as soon as possible.
On Tequila Wolf, a bridge that has been under construction for 700 years by slave laborers, Robin is riding with an escort of revolutionaries.
