The Karasumaru is a Dial Boat in Skypiea.
The craft was black with a black bird's head on the bow. Its only notable feature, besides the bird head, is that it has two breath Dials for propulsion.
Conis used to use Karasumaru before she learned how to use a waver. She lent it to Luffy, Sanji, and Usopp after the Going Merry was taken to Upper Yard. It was wrecked in Upper Yard.
Translation and Dub Issues[edit | edit source]
"Karasu" (鴉 karasu?) means "crow", while "maru" (丸 maru?) means "ring" or "perfect" and is a common suffix in male names. Put together, however, "Karasumaru" literally means "Little Crow".
