The colored cover uses a school bus yellow background, while the title logo is blue, light blue, purple, and light purple. The author's name is colored blue.

On the front Luffy stands in the center, covered in blood and holding one of Krieg's stakes. Behind him are the Krieg Pirates, with Pearl on the left, Krieg in the center, and Gin on the right. In the background is the Dreadnaught Sabre, which has a blue hue.

On the spine Krieg and Gin are featured, and the skull is lavender purple.

For the volume illustration the Straw Hats are lined up in a line, looking like they are having a blast.

Author's Notes[]

Author's Notes
Volume 008 Intro Image

There's this short little story. A long time ago, rabbits—in the distant past—seemed to have been able to fly. The reason why we still count rabbits the same way we count birds in the Japanese language is because of this. Rabbits that freely soared through the ancient, clear, blue skies with those great, big ears---.

...That kind of occult story.
