Jirou Souzousa Shunsui Kyoraku

京楽 次郎 総蔵佐 春水
Captain of the 8th Division Height: 192 cm Weight: 87 kg Race: Shinigami Birthday: July 15th Zodiac: Cancer Theme Song: Carlos Gardels Por una Cabeza Kyoraku is a laid back and flamboyant man evident in his style of dress and general attitude. He wears a straw hat and a pink flowered haori over his captains uniform. Although his haori and obi sash are cheap his pinwheel hairpin is very expensive. In his off time he can be seen drinking sake and napping. Other times he likes to chase after women which is noted by Yasochika Iemura of the 4th Squad when commenting in his diary. In particular he often flirts with his lieutenant Nanao Ise whom he calls my Nanaochan little Nanao. In one of the omake outtakes he told Rangiku Matsumoto to buy Nanao Ise a sexy outfit while in the human world. Matsumoto brings back a skimpy two piece bathing suit which Nanao refuses to try on. He is close friends with 13th Division Captain Jushiro Ukitake with whom he graduated from the shinigami academy and works with often. Kyoraku tends to use a more familiar speech style than most other characters in Bleach. He generally refers to his fellow captains and shinigami by their first name followed by an honorific and is the only character who dispenses with honorifics when addressing General Yamamoto calling him old Yama Yamaj. Even Ukitake who was also taught by Yamamoto does not do this. Kyoraku is a peaceloving man who will always try to talk his way out of a fight. However he does not wish to insult his opponents by not fighting either as he explains to Chad. Since he has achieved the rank of captain it is implied that he must be a powerful fighter but the true extent of his abilities has not been seen in the anime. General Yamamoto states that Kyoraku and Jushiro Ukitake both of whom he trained himself possess greater powers on the battlefield than any younger generation or old suggesting that the two are more powerful than any other captains with the possible exception of Yamamoto himself. The slightly eccentric Kyoraku also seems to like making an impression on opponents. In the Soul Society arc when Kyoraku confronts Chad who had invaded the 8th division area he has Nanao Ise scatter rose petals over him to make a dramatic entrance. It creates this effect at first but when Nanao doesnt stop dropping the petals and Kyoraku begins to exhort her to stop in an embarrassing manner she dumps the whole basket on him burying him and ruining his entrance Source: Wikipedia
