First of all, this: http://mangastream.com/read/one_piece/66085019/20 After Impel Down and the war at Navy's HQ, Buggy now has a huge crew with people with a great bounty. His power and influence has gone up a lot. And then here, the two top-left panels: http://mangastream.com/read/one_piece/73264755/3 Since Buggy now has the command over lots of pirates who are from at least level 3, he's suited to become a Shichibukai. That way the goverment has not only Buggy under control but also everyone who escaped from Impel Down. Except for Luffy and co. and the ones Blackbeard freed. And with the message he recieved from the goverment, I'm sure he'll be asked to join. Next time we see Buggy the Clown, it'll be as a Shichibukai. I'm betting my balls on it. Any other canditates for the 2 other vacant positions of Shichibukai? Discuss.
