Diary of Koby-Meppo Vol. 25: "Koby-Meppo, to the Marine Headquarters"
The vice admiral's ship heads back to Marineford.
Everyone explains to each other but Vivi is unable to promise the reward to Nami. Her country, Alabasta, is on the verge of a civil war, which had secretly been started by the Baroque Works organization. In order to help her country, Princess Vivi has infiltrated Baroque Works with her counselor, Igaram, in order to understand the organisation's true motives. She learned that their ultimate plan they call Dream Country, is in reality to conquer Alabasta by putting it into chaos. When Luffy asks Vivi who is pulling the strings, she accidentally reveals that Mr. 0 is Crocodile, one of the Shichibukai. Unfortunately for them, Baroque Works' Unluckies agents have overheard her revealing the information and they quickly put the three Straw Hat on their organisation's wanted list.
Now that they share the same enemy as Vivi, Igaram proposes a plan: he will go directly to Alabasta, thanks to an Eternal Pose, while the Straw Hat will accompany Vivi through the standard road which will be longer but safer. However, as soon as he departs, Igaram's boat explodes. Luffy does not hesitate any further and states he will help Vivi reach her country.
- The boss of Baroque Works is revealed to be a Shichibukai named Crocodile who has a former bounty of 80,000,000 (incorrect number that will later be corrected).
- Igaram created dummies known as Henoheno Unchi (へのへのうんち, Henoheno Unchi) on February 19th.
