Bleach (manga) – 316: The Shinigami Captains One Century Ago

“The subprime mess turned me into a Vizard.”

Breaking away from Bleach traditions, this chapter takes a flashback without being in the middle of a big fight. The flashback is on the day of inauguration of the new 12th Division Captain Kisuke Urahara one century ago. What is interesting is that only 5 of the 13 captains now were Captains back then, but what is surprising is that at least 3 of the 13 captains back then became Vizards today. What is even more surprising is that there is a little-known Division — the 0th Division — called the Royal Guards.

Listed below are the known Captains one century ago and today.

Update:1Byakuya Kuchiki’s grandfather. 2Another future Vizard Kensei Muguruma.
Division 1 Century Ago Today
0th Hikifune (Unknown)
1st Genryuusai Yamamoto
2nd Shihouin Yoruichi Soifon
3rd Rose (Vizard) Gin Ichimaru (Defected)
4th Retsu Unohana
5th Shinji Hirako (Vizard) Sousuke Aizen (Defected)
6th (Unknown)1 Byakuya Kuchiki
7th Love Aigawa (Vizard) Sajin Komamura
8th Shunsui Kyouraku
9th (Unknown)2 Kaname Tousen (Defected)
10th (Recently Demised) Toushirou Hitsugaya
11th Kenpachi Zaraki
12th Kisuke Urahara Mayuri Kurotsuchi
13th Juushirou Ukitake

What is the most surprising from this chapter, however, is that Aizen was just a lowly lieutenant subordinated to Hirako. I can’t even begin to comprehend what this might mean in regard to the level of reiatsu that Hirako possesses.

Hirako > Aizen?

Damn! That’s inconceivable!

“I’m always smooth, baby.”
