At this time, the sun had completely set, and the sky was full of starlight.
Although it was night, all the lights in the Marine base were turned on, and the whole base was like daylight.
Besides the port, countless Marine soldiers stood upright along the entire docking port. They stared straight ahead with their eyes filled with excitement and seriousness.
The entrance to the Marine base.
Several powerful searchlights gather all the lights there. The bright lights illuminate the Sea Territory around the base.
Some Marine officers such as Garp and Jonathan were also standing on the edge of the port, looking at the entry port in the distance. The faces of these Marine officers also showed excitement.
And Garp only showed a look of helplessness on his face.
‘Isn’t it just a few Vice Admirals? Why are we making such a big deal? Might as well go back to sleep.’
Garp didn’t even notice the big movement in the Marine base was also not small every time he came.
A Marine officer whispered to his colleagues nearby: “Don’t worry. My back is wet.”
“Well, so do I. The are several Vice Admirals coming. In addition to that, there will be Admirals. This kind of thing is really rare.”
“Yes. Except for Hero of the Marines Vice-Admiral Garp, I haven’t seen other Vice Admirals.”
Another Marine soldier interrupted and said: “It’s not just some Vice Admirals. But Admirals. They are the Marine’s highest battle strength, deterring the existence of the entire Grand Line.”
“How is it possible? Didn’t it mean that there is only Marine Vice-Admiral? How come the Admirals are coming here?” the two were equally surprised.
“This is all true, and I won’t lie to you. This is what happened with my fellow in the kitchen; I accidentally heard the conversation between Rear Admiral Jonathan and his wife, from the mouth of Rear Admiral Jonathan himself.”
Just when the two wanted to ask what happened, Rear Admiral Jonathan whispered shouted.
“Pipe down! Don’t be noisy and act decent.”
After Jonathan yelled, the Marines, who were discussing in a low voice, quickly closed their mouths. Their expression became serious again.
Who knows which Marine soldier said the word, but no one was going to investigate the person at this time. Because everyone’s eyes had gathered to the front, they didn’t have the energy for it.
A bright light slowly appeared from the darkness, and then two bright lights appeared, and more and more, nine bright lights appeared in everyone’s eyes. As time went by, the bright lights appeared clearly in front of everyone, and the warships with their lights gradually approached the harbor.
On both sides of the entrance, the two lighthouses standing on the periphery of the base lit up, guiding the warships to enter the port.
The huge hull is close to the sea, driving fast, and wherever it passes, only waves disappear in the darkness.
At the bow of each warship, a Marine was standing with a justice Marine cloak, exuding an aura of powerhouse, followed by a group of Marine soldiers.
Among these Marine battleships, one of the naval warships was different from the others. All of the Marine soldiers were women. On the ship’s bow was also a female Marine Vice Admiral.
As the sea breeze hits, the white Marine cloak fluttered in the wind, and the word justice was so dazzling under the light.
On the observation tower, the Marine soldiers opened their eyes wide and looked at everything in front of them. Marine soldiers secretly counted the battleships that entered the Marine base.
“One ship, two ships, three ships… nine ships. A total of nine Marine battleships, five Marine Vice Admiral, nine Marine Rear Admiral. Is this the support from the Marine Headquarters?”
Many Marine soldiers looked at this lineup and exclaimed from their hearts.
The huge iron anchor was sent down from the ship, the chains were rustling, and there were loud noises everywhere. All the Marine battleships that came to support were parked in a short time.
There was a slight sound of’ ’ta’, and they lowered stairs from each battleship. The Marine Admirals led several men, walked down, and then gathered together towards Vice Admiral Garp and the others.
The entire team exuded a powerful, imposing manner, especially the first five Vice Admirals of the Marine Headquarters, who were even more powerful, far surpassing the rest.
This is the Vice Admirals of the Marine Headquarters!
The one in the front was tall, wearing a white suit vest and dark blue shirt, always wearing a green blindfold on his forehead. Marine Headquarters Vice Admiral Kuzan*!
[*TL note: Kuzan, better known by his former epithet Aokiji, is a former Marine admiral and the first one to be revealed. He was nominated by Sengoku for the position of fleet admiral. However, after losing the position to Sakazuki, he resigned from the Marines. He has currently affiliated himself with the Blackbeard Pirates for unknown reasons.]
Half a step behind him was a silver-haired, like a grandmother, the only woman in Marine Vice Admiral, she wears a white Marine cloak, wears a tie and a light purple shirt around her neck. Marine Headquarters Vice Admiral Tsuru!
Next were three other Marine Headquarters Vice Admirals.
He was tall and sturdy, wearing a porous mask with horns on the mask, and holding a large long knife in his hand. Judging from the exposed chin, he looked quite rough, with dark red hair like a lion. Marine Headquarters Vice Admiral Bastille![TL note: “Shark Cutter” Bastille is a Marine Vice Admiral who took part in the Summit War of Marineford. He later appeared in Dressrosa under the command of Admiral Fujitora.]
Brown clothes with a dog head mask on his head. On Sexon Island, he was severely injured by Rayleigh and almost died. Now he had recovered completely and his strength has improved. Marine Headquarters Vice Admiral Dalmatian![TL note: Vice Admiral Dalmatian is one of the many Marine vice admirals to have participated in the Summit War of Marineford.]
A katana at the waist, wearing a light purple striped suit and dark blue shirt, tie, punk head, beard, hair and father and son are all dark violet. Marine Headquarters Vice Admiral Momonga![TL note: Vice Admiral Momonga is a Marine officer and the Base Commander of the G-1 Marine Base. He was one of the five vice admirals who had led the Buster Call on Enies Lobby.]
Of course, there were nine Marine Rear Admiral in the last row, followed by a few Commodores and some Captains, Commanders… At the end of this group, there was a female Marine with sea-blue color long curly hair, a pair of piercing, standing silently behind the crowd, and no one noticed.
This series of people can be called an extremely luxurious lineup. The Marine’s mid-end battle strength has at least a quarter.
While Jonathan looked at this lineup, he was immediately relieved. Jonathan only knew that the Marine would send reinforcements, and he heard from Garp that there would be Admiral-level battle strength.
The specific numbers were Marine secrets. Such a large force mobilization was also a top secret in the Marine. With Jonathan’s status level, of course he wouldn’t be allowed to know.
However, seeing the arrival of five Vice Admirals, nine Rear Admirals, and thousands of Marine soldiers, Jonathan felt that he could finally be liberated.
As for the Admiral battle strength like what Vice Admiral Garp had said before, he immediately understood the person in front is Kuzan after only seeing his silhoutte.
Jonathan knew this through the current Marine Admiral Akainu.[TL note: Sakazuki, formerly known by his admiral alias Akainu, is the current fleet admiral of the Marines, succeeding the previous fleet admiral, Sengoku. During the first half of the series, he was one of the three admirals, as the last one to debut. Upon becoming his fleet admiral, one of Sakazuki’s first decisions was to relocate Marine Headquarters into the New World in preparation for the New Pirate Age.]
Jonathan and Admiral Akainu were good friends. He heard Akainu mention Kuzan before. They were already the default in the Marine Headquarters.
This time the Marine Headquarters sent Kuzan out. On the one hand, the Marine Headquarter was involved in the New World.
There were also many great Great Pirates coming for the “Heavenly Gold”. The Marine must have high-strength battle strength to deter them. Kuzan is an excellent candidate. On the other hand, it was likely a reason to prepare for Kuzan’s promotion. This was an opportunity to increase his military achievement.
Feeling so many Marine Admirals passing by, the Marine soldiers standing on both sides couldn’t help holding his breath under that powerful momentum.
They carefully looked at the faces of each Marine Vice Admirals, as if to put them all in their minds.
Looking at the back of these Marine Vice Admirals, the soldiers could not help but whispered: “Is this the power of Vice Admirals? Sure enough, they’re extremely terrifying, but it truly is the Marine’s high-end battle strength.”
“Marine Vice Admiral is so powerful. I wonder how powerful all the Marine Headquarter is?”
“Yes, this time there is such a powerful reinforcement. Those pirates dare to show off in front of our Marine…” a Marine said with an angry face.
Because of the ’Heavenly Gold’ incident, Korod didn’t know how many pirates came. Some very powerful pirates even drove Pirate Ships to the Marine base to show off their might.
But besides relying on the battle strength in the Marine base, they could only shrink back and dare not go out to fight, so all Marine soldiers sighed in their chests.
When did the Marine be blocked by the pirates at the door?
Now that reinforcements were here, they could breathe normally again.
