Appearance[edit | edit source]
Bushon is a pudgy man with a white coat and tall black hat befitting his position at Water 7. He has a black mustache and wears a white shirt with a dark tie.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Bushon is very strict about the rules, as he was unwilling to let Sanji aboard Puffing Tom. He appears to have great respect for Paulie. In the anime, he is known to eavesdrop and gossip, as he tried to see who was boarding the Sea Train for Enies Lobby, but was stopped by World Government officials. He also tends to come to the wrong conclusions about events in Water 7 because of the nature of gossiping itself. He believed a group of thugs in the backstreets was responsible for the destruction of Galley-La headquarters and also thought that when Nami had them go collect food and drinks for the crew, it was all for her and she had a big appetite as a growing woman.
History[edit | edit source]
Water 7 Arc[edit | edit source]
Bushon was first seen after the departure of Puffing Tom from Water 7 right before Aqua Laguna hit. He was complaining of a man who had boarded without permission, and was surprised when Nami said she would follow the Sea Train. He then had to be saved from the incoming Aqua Laguna by Paulie.
Later, Bushon and Stevie were sent on a quest to find meat and sake, thinking that the food was for Nami. Right before Rocket Man took off, Nami brought Bushon and Stevie to its location. Bushon and Stevie commented on how they were surprised by the existence of another sea train. They were last seen watching Rocket Man leave with Iceburg.
They watched the Rocket Man get onto the railway from the distance. They ended up fighting over a pair of binoculars and challenged each other to Rock, Paper, Scissors for who would keep the binoculars and who must go tell Iceburg that Kokoro made it onto the tracks safely.
Post-Enies Lobby Arc[edit | edit source]
Bushon and Stevie later rushed to join the Straw Hats' party after Blue Station closed and went off-duty for the night. Stevie noticed the whole town was gone and must be partying without them. Bushon, being out of shape, collapsed for a moment and remarked he was getting too old. Stevie got the idea that Water 7 was partying because Paulie and Nami were getting married, still having the wrong idea about the "love letter" from Sanji. The employees believed they had a part in the grand scheme of this "marriage" because they witnessed the tragic event at Blue Station where Nami was actually upset that Robin had boarded the Sea Train.
Concludes non-canon section.
Anime and Manga Differences[edit | edit source]
- His and Stevie's attempt to discover the real identities of the CP9 Agents only to be stopped by World Government officials did not occur in the manga.
- Stevie and Bushon's gossip based nature and misconceptions is more stretched out in the anime. One example is their misconception of Nami's letter from Sanji and thinking it was an actual love letter, causing them to think Nami was in a love triangle and later in the Post-Enies Lobby arc mistakenly thought the Straw Hat's party was for Nami getting married to Paulie.
