Chapter 79 is titled "Survive".
Color Spread: The Straw Hat Pirates are in a wild west-like setting. Zoro is riding a huge black panther, Nami is sitting next to a second hungover black panther, Usopp is pointing a pistol at the readers, Sanji is carrying 2 barrels and Luffy is seen with a vegetable-filled bag on his neck while he is eating meat.
After Bell-mère's death, Nami was kidnapped when Arlong discovered her ability for drawing maps. All the villagers decided to fight to take her back, but she suddenly came back by herself, revealing that she was now part of Arlong's crew. She even showed that she could earn all the money she wanted. Disgusted by this selfish behavior, the villagers rejected her. But when Nojiko went to her mother's grave, Nami was already sitting there. She explained to her sister that in order to accomplish their mother's last wish and live, they could not rebel against Arlong who was too strong for them. Instead she decided to draw maps for him, revealing that she would be able to buy her village back for 100,000,000.
