The Straw Hats set sail, even though Usopp has not yet returned to them, because Zoro had promised that if Usopp was allowed to return without his first words being an apology, Zoro would leave himself. Even if they wanted to wait longer, they could not, because Garp has arrived and under direct orders of Fleet-Admiral Sengoku starts throwing cannonballs at the Straw Hats' ship. While the Straw Hats fend of the cannonballs, Usopp arrives at the coast and tries to rejoin the crew as if nothing happened. Minding Zoro's words, neither he nor Luffy admit hearing Usopp's calling in the midst of battle. Only afterward Usopp realizes his fault and begs for forgiveness; Luffy tearfully reaches out and pulls him aboard.
