In chapter 852 (Possible Anime Spoilers ahead)

when Jinbe saved Nami and Luffy from Book Worlds, Jinbe burn the book to save them. When Nami and Luffy finally escape from the book, Nami said

"I get the feeling... We've been this through something like this before..."

What is exactly Nami referring to? I can't remember she ever escaping from a or something.

    @JTR Spoiler Tags gets messed up when you try to do rely on SE to read multi line. though it'll look horrible for larger/longer stuff if you replace the new lines with <br> you can get it to look almost the same

    @Matt i suspect it might be because it's reading multi-line spoilers as multi-line quotes with ! at the start

The situation in this chapter plays out exactly as it had earlier before the time skip in the Little Garden Arc.

A: Nami, Zoro and Vivi are captured and stuck in an impossible situation, Mr.3 has put them in his Candle Statue.
B: Luffy and Nami are captured and stuck in an impossible situation, Mont Dór has captured them in his books.

Suggested Resolution: Self Mutiliation
A: Zoro suggests escape by cutting off his legs
B: Luffy tries to escape by tearing off his limbs

Final Resolution: Burn everything down and escape in a blaze of fire
A: Usopp burns the candle stand down after Carue wraps it around with a rope.
B: Jinbe burns down the books freeing all the prisoners.

No wonder Nami knows this has happened before. :)
