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.
|Division||1 Century Ago||Today|
|3rd||Rose (Vizard)||Gin Ichimaru (Defected)|
|5th||Shinji Hirako (Vizard)||Sousuke Aizen (Defected)|
|7th||Love Aigawa (Vizard)||Sajin Komamura|
|9th||(Unknown)2||Kaname Tousen (Defected)|
|10th||(Recently Demised)||Toushirou Hitsugaya|
|12th||Kisuke Urahara||Mayuri Kurotsuchi|
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.
Damn! That’s inconceivable!
