Wapol's Omnivorous Hurrah Vol. 2: "I Eat a Tree".
After crossing the Emperonimbus Clouds, the Straw Hat Pirates land on a white landscape: a sea made of clouds. Usopp tries to swim into this strange sea, however, it is not without danger, and without Robin and Luffy rescuing him, he would have died from falling to the ground or be eaten by the strange monsters that attacked the Going Merry.
Meanwhile, Chopper spots a pirate ship, that is suddenly destroyed by a mysterious assailant who is now targeting the Going Merry. The Straw Hat Pirates are unable to stop him, but they are saved by a strange mercenary, Knight of the Sky.
The Straw Hat crew find it hard to breathe, as they reach what seems to be a sea in the sky, made of clouds. Meanwhile, the Blackbeard Pirates discuss about the Straw Hats getting away, but they rest assured, that they will meet again, as long as they both stay in the grand line.
Once they get used to the atmosphere, the Straw Hats are astonished by the scenery on the cloud sea. Usopp decides to go for a swim but is not careful enough and falls off the bottom of the thick clouds. Luffy stretches his arm and, with the help of Robin, he manages to grab him and pull him back on the ship. Following Usopp though, come a giant octopus and a sea monster who try to attack the ship, but Zoro and Sanji are quick to defeat them, and Sanji then cooks the animals.
While Luffy tastes the food, Chopper notices in the distance another ship and, what appears to be a human, attacking and destroying it. Before the panicked Chopper manages to explain the situation to his crew mates, the masked man comes, seemingly running on the clouds, and attempts to attack Merry. Luffy, Zoro and Sanji try to oppose the attacker, but are quickly overwhelmed. Just when the situation seemed dire, another man appears. It's an old man, wearing armor and riding a huge bird. The old man fights the attacker away and he presents himself to the Straw Hats as "The Knight of the Sky".
