Luffy sets off his Gum-Gum Fireworks move at the enemy when the leader of the White Berets doesn't fight back, in fact he tells Luffy and his crew that they are pacifists who don't want violence, most unlike the priests of Upper Yard who will judge them as class two criminals for attacking them.
After being told that they are trespassing on their land, Luffy and his crew have to find a way to get out of their trouble they have got into by accident. They also wonder if they will ever manage too get back to the Blue Sea World. This is something they have never considered as they have been travelling for so long.
There is a way, but they must go to Cloud End if they are to have any hope of getting home.
 
There's plenty happening in this season of One Piece, Luffy is thinking with his stomach again and goes back to the island for the leftovers to take on their next journey. They think they have fled the judgement, once they leave, it will start and the ship will make its own way to the priests of Upper Yard. It could be strange to go back home when they have come this far into the series along with their first movie.

The animation has brought the characters out by having painterly backgrounds such as the use of them in "A Trap on Lovely Street! The Almighty Eneru!" where our heroes are left wondering around an island paradise. They are helped by a winged guide, Conis to go to a place lovingly called Lovely Street, which is more of a joke as it is anything but a town surrounded by fluffy clouds. Luffy and his crew start looking for his other friends and getting to Upper Yard may be perilous, but in their inflatable boat they might have a chance. Nanae and Robin are in danger of being sacrificed and Luffy does all he can to put things right in a town that is dominated by an entity called the Mighty Eneru.

In collection seven, Usopp is his usual self, scared of almost everything he comes into contact with while Sanji and Zoro battle devious foes when they undergo the ordeals to get past a cruel god. Fans won't be disappointed with this collection as the action and the humour never seems to stop.
Bonus Material: Staff Commentary, Text less Songs and Trailers.
Verdict: One Piece is laugh a minute style stuff and with this arc comes many possibilities.
