Short Summary

Long Summary

We recap to the point the Buster Call shoots the Tower of Justice. It's revealed that Sogeking fell from the struck section and into the base of the tower where Sanji and Zoro were located, avoiding falling with the rest of the section into the abyss. Meanwhile, on the Bridge of Hesitation, Franky and Nico Robin (just freed from her cuffs) prepare to fight their way past Spandam and the Marines to reach a getaway ship. At the same instant, Luffy is still fighting Rob Lucci in the first column. Lucci has just used a Rankyaku to start flooding the column and the underground tunnel with seawater, meaning anyone attempting to catch up to them will drown, enraging Luffy.

Robin sees the arrival of the Buster Call and falls to her knees in shock while Spandam tries to calm the Marines seeking to flee its wrath. The Buster Call begins its attack on Enies Lobby's Main Island. Their main objective is to stop Luffy and company, and they'll destroy Enies Lobby to do it. Franky is stunned at this "total madness," but as he turns he sees Robin clutching herself, frozen in fear. She recalls how the Buster Call was just as merciless in leveling her home of Ohara, and now she is witnessing its terrifying force for a second time.

Sanji, Zoro, Sogeking, Kokoro, Nami, Chimney, and Gonbe make their way through the tunnel in two groups. In the rear, Sanji and Zoro are carrying an injured and slung Sogeking. Ahead, Chimney recounts to Kokoro and Nami how Luffy broke the heavy steel door earlier using a new technique called Gear 3. While effective, the attack apparently resulted in Luffy shrinking into a tiny form for a time. Chimney then hears something ahead; it's the flood of seawater.

Meanwhile, the first column is itself flooding, forcing Luffy and Lucci to take the fight higher up the column and above the water line. Lucci continues to taunt Luffy about the fate of his crew and friends. But Luffy places his faith in them. While the two groups face the onrush of water, Luffy and Lucci resume fighting, and Lucci's Rokushiki mastery forces Luffy to play his trump card. He activates Gear 3 and reveals his Bone Balloon technique. Biting into his thumb, he inflates the bones in his right arm then transfer the air to his left arm, giving it the size (and power) of a giant, which he proceeds to unleash on Lucci: Gomu Gomu no Gigant Pistol, an attack powerful enough to overwhelm Lucci's Tekkai, blow a massive hole in the first column, and send Lucci flying.
