The Mimawarigumi were a squad of samurai who directly served under Kurozumi Orochi, the shogun of Wano Country.

With the death of Orochi by Kaido's hands, the members of the group swore loyalty to Kaido, effectively becoming part of the Beasts Pirates.[2]

Overview

The Mimawarigumi were a group of elite samurai well respected in the Flower Capital, capable enough to be entrusted by Orochi to be his personal bodyguards alongside the Orochi Oniwabanshu.

According to Hotei, the Mimawarigumi consists of 5000 members.[2]

History

Wano Country Arc

After the chaos caused by the Straw Hat Pirates at Rasetsu Town, the Mimawarigumi arrived at the Flower Capital to provide extra security.[1]

On the day of the Fire Festival, they accompanied Orochi to Onigashima,[3] where they were introduced to the crowd by Queen.[4] As Kaido announced the New Onigashima Project, the Mimawarigumi witnessed Kaido betraying and beheading Orochi, and the group was offered the choice to join the Beasts Pirates or die.[5] Hotei swore allegiance to Kaido, with little protest from his subordinates.[2]

Translation and Dub Issues

In the VIZ translation of Chapter 951, the Mimawagumi are not distinguished by name. Instead, the line referring to the group simply reads "...with samurai and ninja on patrol in every quarter!!". The VIZ translation first gives the name "Mimawarigumi" in Chapter 978.

Trivia

  • The group may have been inspired by Kyoto Mimawarigumi, a special police force that operated in the Kyoto region during the Edo period.
  • The Mimawarigumi also wore Haori with sleeves trimmed with mountain stripes similar to the Shisengumi, a famous special police force that also operated in the Kyoto region during the Edo period.
  • In Chapter 960, two men wearing the same uniform as the Mimawarigumi were seen working for Kozuki Sukiyaki, the shogun of Wano Country at the time. It is unknown if these men were part of the same group as the current Mimawarigumi, but it appears likely that Orochi co-opted aspects of this group for his own police force, as he did with the Oniwabanshu.[6]
