Since Sosuke Aizen’s defeat, the Gotei 13 has adjusted the ranks of its Captains by letting some Visoreds return to their previous positions. Most notably, Captains Shinji Hirako returned to the Fifth Division, Kensei Muguruma to the Ninth Division and Rojuro Otoribashi to the Third Division. At the beginning of the series, each Division has its own purpose and theme, some more obvious than others, represented by their Captain. However, does the change of leadership affect the theme of the team itself?
In episode 4 of Bleach: The Thousand Years of Blood, there is a brief moment to gain insight into the current dynamics of the Third Division. Rose was confronted by Sternritter NaNaNa Najahkoop, who commented on the loss of morale in the position of Bazz-B, Sternritter defeated Izuru Kira. This interaction reveals something about the relationship between the Vice Captain and the Captain and how the original theme of Division was continued by Izuru but evolved with the introduction of Rose into the ranks.
How Rose embodies and enhances the original theme of despair
The insignia of the Third Team is the marigold flower, which represents the concept of despair. Under the influence of Gin Ichimaru, this ideal made sense. Gin is a being that causes despair wherever he goes, and Izuru embodies despair in his actions, views, Zanpakuto, and personality. He is devastated by Gin’s departure and must face that despair to find a solution against his former leader. On the other hand, Rose is not a character who appears to create despair or be influenced by it. As an artist, Rose sought to exploit it.
During Rose’s interactions with NaNaNa, he claims that Izuru was the catalyst for his inspiration, helping Rose create the tune simply in the presence of his Vice Captain. The implication of this statement is that Rose seeks to dissect the tearful and desperate nature of Division and Izuru into beautiful and meaningful songs. While at first this may seem like a one-sided comment about Rose’s relationship with Izuru, on the surface it is a rebuttal to the original use of despair in Division. As Gin revels in creating despair for her own agenda, Rose transforms feelings of melancholy into things of artistic beauty.
Kira’s Growth After Gin Ichimaru
This is likely due to Izuru’s growth since Gin’s death. While Gin is the Captain, despair causes Izuru to fear and lack confidence, making him an ineffective Vice-Captain. By accepting despair over the actions of those he considers close to him, Izuru was able to use it as a power, similar to how Shuhei Hisagi used to fear battle and his sword. self. Thanks to this development, Rose incorporates Izuru’s power of despair into her music rather than lamenting the limitations of despair, creating a rather beneficial bond between the two.
Retaining but tweaking the core concept of the character’s personality allows the character to develop more realistically and dynamically. If Izuru gave up his sense of despair, he wouldn’t have grown from the experience, and as such wouldn’t be the character that fans enjoy now. By developing an understanding of despair that can be used as a link between Rose and Izuru for their Division’s ideology, it reshapes Division’s dynamics and makes the pair truly unique. deeper and more engaging through the information provided about their relationship.
Changes made to Divisional leadership may have affected the original theme, but for the third team it wasn’t done outright. By observing Izuru’s maturity and Rose’s intentions, it is clear that a common bond has formed by exploiting the concept of despair to the best interests of both parties. Their dynamic is truly the strongest mentally and emotionally the Third Team has ever been, and if Izuru survives this encounter, it’s welcome to see more of their interactions on the internet. screen. If not, chances are there will be a moment that makes Rose cry.
