Aisa tells Wiper that two "voices" disappeared (Gan Fall and Satori). Usopp finds the boat they lost track of and manages to get everyone onto it just before it leaves the Forest. Nami continues to lead Zoro and Robin to the suspicious half of a house she saw. The Shandia begin their invasion of Upper Yard. Chopper, Gan Fall, and Pierre are somehow all alive. Nami, Zoro, and Robin arrive at the cliff side and then realize that Upper Yard was originally a part of Jaya.
In the Shandia village, Aisa informs Wiper that she felt, using her Mantra, that two voices have beed silenced in the forest. Wiper rejoices and realizes that this is the time for them to act and begin their assault. When Wiper leaves, Aisa reveals to Laki that it wasn't Gan Fall who defeated the priest, but some other very powerful people, who are also in the forest. Laki asks for the girl's purse and when she refuses to give it away, claiming that her treasure is inside, Laki promises to bring more for her.
In the forest, Usopp urges Luffy amd Sanji to hurry up, if they want to catch up with their boat. Using Usopp's waist rope, they finally manage to get on board. Nami seems to have discovered something about Upper Yard, and is about to lead Zoro and Robin there to make sure.
While the rest of the Priests, using Mantra, acknowledge the defeat of their comrade in the hands of the newcommers, the Shandia warriors have begun their invasion in God's island, lead by Wiper who is determined to light the fire of Shandia.
Nami's group reach a clearing where they see something familiar. A missing part of a house they saw down on Jaya. This leads them to realize that, Upper Yard was once on the ground, originally a part of the island of Jaya.
- The Shandia attack Upper Yard.
- The chapter title "Overture" (Opening in French) is in reference to the instrumental introduction of a dramatic choral composition. The chapter is named Overture because it marks the beginning of the Shandia invasion much like an Overture marks the beginning of a musical composition..
