a character not listed
a brand new character
Even though Buggy would be the weakest Shichibukai in history if he became one, the government most likely has their eyes set on the ex-prisoners he has recruited in their crew- after all it would be very troublesome if they were to cause problems during this time. A lot of things happened after the war, and I'm sure the government was freaking out and wasn't in the right state of mind.
I have no clue about the second choice though.
As the revolutionaries lost Kuma (there must be a reason that he gave himself in for the marine’s experiment) .. Who got the affiliation with govt for helping revolutionaries from inside... There is a high probability that Someone from revolutionary would try to take the place ...
Buggy is an obvious choice as he got the letter from govt... I would like to hear the govt officials talking about it to know exactly why they chose Buggy ,,, c’mon for getting that position one has to capture Ace and other one gave 100 pirate hearts,,, And none of the shichibukai had such less bounty as buggy in their pirate days..
What's so weird about it? The transmission uncovered Buggy as one of the leaders of ID escape as well as former crewman of Roger with a lot of strong prisoners in his crew. All of Roger's crew was hunted, and yet he survived. A close friend of Shanks. Ace's drinking buddy. Started prison riot with Luffy. Fought WG at Marineford. Fought Mihawk and was unhurt. Saved Luffy and Jinbei's life.
That's enough to scare almost any pirate in Paradise. Plus, he now has a crew that could probably defeat most of the rookie crews if not vets, depending how strong those prisoners really are.
Its hard to imagine him as one though, he seems like a character designed specifically for comic relief, i dont think many would take him seriously.
And the rule is BS anyway - if they've got a top-tier pirate + crew, it's better than having just the pirate.
Here's the page - http://www.mangareader.net/103-2142-...hapter-69.html
Always thought the idea itself was stupid and manga confirmed it. You've seen Jinbei is still a captain of Sun Pirates. We know from a flashback why he left a part of the crew. Boa has her pirate crew, Doflamingo as well. Crocodile certainly wasn't alone, nor was Moria. Blackbeard also had his crew with him. The only Shichibukai who were ever soloing wer Mihawk, who is a loner and Kuma, who is a spy and doesn't need a ship to travel.
So no, there is no rule that says that a Shichibukai has to leave their crew to work for WG. And yeah, Buggy and a lot of other Shichibukai wouldn't be able to do much without their crews. Boa can't operate a ship on her own and Doflamingo would be nothing without his people. Law may be alone at the moment but that has nothing to do with WG demands.
Myth’s don’t die fast ... Otherwise there would have been a ban on “mythology” already ....
Yeah it is not exactly stated anywhere as the criteria..my mistake... Also govt favours and see that all shichibukai’s feel comfortable and govt extends their help and support for that... For e.g. Dofla’s businesses ... hancock’s treaty ... Law’s independence to move through govt old facilities... BB’s moving around govt facilities.. etc... And Sengoku indicated once that the pirate should be well known and a threat enough to scare away other pirates (here- http://www.mangareader.net/103-2341-...apter-234.html) ...
For the crew thing.. it can easily be misinterpreted given the reason that no shichibukai has been seen with his crew all the time like other pirate captains.... Boa hancock is also referred as pirate empress rather than a captain... We don’t know anything about sun pirates till date.. is it serving under Jinbei or not.. All we know is that Jinbei took the shichi position and got Arlong and crew out of the jail in return and part of sun pirates became arlong pirates , part of it became macro group.. and rest remaining are under Big Mom’s wings... Croc was having a secret organisation under him which was not known to the government.. And as for Moria.. Zombies are to be considered as part of his DF power rather than actual crewmates.. He did have underlings I must say.. And doflamingo is more of like ..different organisations/businesses under him and he has appointed leaders to take care of it and report to him...
During the Marineford war when the shichibukais were summoned to lend their power.. clearly I don’t see any shichibukai was there with his crew or underlings... not even doflamingo for that matters... so clearly govt does not see their crew as part of their powers...
As far as buggy is concerned... My memory is failing me.. but what I can remember is that Buggy knowing Whitebeard .. He being part of Roger’s crew (or was it stated that he was on Roger’s boat and didn’t mention crew) .. He knowing Shanks and referring to him as rival was all seen by the ID escapes only and not the marines.. because whenever all this happened he was standing at the side of pirates and not between marines... But yeah he did broadcast some of the things ... I think I just need to go through war arc again..
Also I would say the marines must know about the buggy’s feat (funny) in East blue and how much of a threat he actually is .. Like how Tsuru was knowing about Lafetia when no one else knew about him.. Just an infamous policeman ..
And if buggy has been identified as roger's crew mate, wouldn't govt will try to annihilate him rather than offering him a shichi position.. They didn't try to offer that to rayleigh for sure... And even Tom was imprisoned for helping out Roger.. Any person related to roger is just seen as a threat rather than a helping hand by the government...
At the end of day it might happen that before leaving marines.. Sengoku knowingly trolled the govt by suggesting Buggy for shichibukai's seat ... Big troll

how bout Magellan? what happened to him btw?
He's a vice warden now. Got demoted as a punishment, probably. It's not like it matters who's in charge in ID, as long as Magellan is inside ;D
I'de say that Buggy is a given, but then i think either Bege or Urogue might also end up being apart of the Shichibukai. Out of all of the SV's those two are the only ones left with no real intrigue to them, they've done nothing thus far to express their individuality. Although Oda could just change that in a single chapter.
the shichibukai are:
Brand New character who cut Z's arm off.
The first 5 are obvious. Remember what the Gorousei said, they have to pick guys with influence. Buggy may not be strong, but he now commands a large crew of pretty infamous pirates. Shanks is a Yonkou, and Buggy is is known worldwide to be his good friend. Also they were crewman of the the most feared pirate to have ever lived. Buggy is guilty by association.
No one would mess with Buggy out of fear of Shanks, so it would make sense to pick him because he name carries weight in the pirate world.
The last Shichibukai must be a ormer level 6 prisoner. Oda has to keep the Shichibukai name a threat in the manga. Law and Buggy compared to the original 4 are pretty weak in comparison, so the last Shichibukai has to be a super powerful guy.
