Akatsuki vs Smoke Clan
The leader of Akatsuki, Sven Daggerbones, called together friends and members of his guild and attacked The Smoke Clan on the island of Tortuga, searching everywhere until they found them on the docks. Sven, Zack, and Shadow were the main commanders during the battle. Both sides had losses, but Akatsuki would not give up! Midway through the fight, Angel Sunslipper (a member of their guild) turned on the them, but that did not matter. Sven and Zach fought the Co. Junior goons in battle, and they crushed them. Sven decided to do some demolition, and almost blew up the entire island of Tortuga.
Battle at Sea
The battle at sea was very crucial. The goal of the conflict was sea was to destroy Smoke Clan transports. The battle was won quickly, each and every transport was destroyed, and many members of the Smoke Clan were slaughtered. Anthony Samuel was one of the only men left, he barely escaped on his war transport (the last one that had not suffered damage). The men of the Akatsuki 50th navy had failed to kill Samuel, the Smoke Clan leader.
The prisoners left from the battle that were members of the Smoke Clan had only been left as prisoners because of a command issued by Sven. When they faced trial, their sentence was to be death by hanging. Later, Sven called a War Meeting to assemble the all 700th All-Weapon battalion, then commanded the assault on Ash Island, which is one of the many Smoke Clan region bases. So begins the Smoke Clan war.
