One Piece Shocks With Buggy's New Alliance

One Piece's final saga has begun to update fans on the current state of the world outside of Wano, and the newest chapter of the series has dropped one of the most surprising updates yet with the reveal of Buggy's powerful new alliance! Luffy and the Straw Hats have been cut off from the outside world ever since they landed on Wano Country's isolated shores, and through the arc it was teased that the seas outside of the island have gone through dramatic changes. The biggest of which seem to somehow involve Buggy the Clown at the center of them.

Following the shocking reveal that Buggy has officially become one of the new Emperors of the Sea alongside previous members Shanks, Teech, and new addition Luffy, the newest chapter of the series continues these shocking reveals even more by revealing that Buggy has his hands in even more schemes than expected. Apparently Buggy has formed the "Cross Guild" alliance, and it's touting that he now has former Seven Warlords members Crocodile and Hawkeye Mihawk not only working with him, but somehow under him in the time since we had seen him last. 

When we last got a look at Buggy or any of the former Seven Warlords, it was following the Reverie in which the World Government decided to dissolve that system entirely. While it's still unclear as to how Buggy got to his current high status, Chapter 1056 of One Piece shares a poster advertising Buggy's new Cross Guild group with Crocodile and Mihawk seemingly poised as his underlings. As Kid explains, however, this company has been putting bounties on the Navy as it encourages everyday people to rebel and fight against the World Government. 

Much like how Buggy got to his previous Warlord position, it seems like his schemes this time around have expanded to such a deadly point that not only is he not directly involved (and thus less likely to be directly challenged for his role as an Emperor), but has recruited some powerful fighters to whatever his current cause might be. Now it's just a matter of seeing just how his alliance with these former Warlords actually works out. 

How do you feel seeing Buggy become and Emperor and working with these big names? How do you think it will all shake out for the clown once Luffy enters the picture?
