Special Duties

The 4th Division is the medical/supply division. They are responsible for both treating the injured and doing most of the manual labor, such as cleaning the Seireitei. The 4th Division is further divided into teams that have specific assigned jobs. They are looked down upon by Squad 11 who usually bully them around, although most members of the 11th Division are afraid of the Captain Retsu Unohana.

Recruitment Fair

In the Bleach Bootleg, a section was included with questions and answers from the captains and vice-captains of each squad as part of the Gotei 13 Recruitment Fair. The following was the 4th Division entry for the Recruitment Fair.

Retsu Unohana

1. What kind of individuals are you seeking?

I don't mind whatever kind of person wants to join.

2. How would you describe the atmosphere around your division?

It's really a very harmonious environment, don't you think?

3. What do you require of new recruits?

People who are Kidō specialists would be good, yes.

4. Some words for the Shinigami recruits.

I will be waiting to meet you.


Isane Kotetsu

1. What kind of individuals are you seeking?

We're not particularly picky.

2. How would you describe the atmosphere around your division?

Since we double as the infirmary, we get a lot of people coming in and out who need to be hospitalized or treated medically, so I think that gives us kind of a unique atmosphere, a little different than other divisions.

3. What do you require of new recruits?

I need to have requirements?! Even just one person is fine, but if a lot of people join it would really be a big help.

4. Some words for the Shinigami recruits.

Let's try our best together! Also, once a month, the captain organizes an ikebana showing!


Frank talk!! with the 13th Division's third seat, Kiyone Kotetsu

Neesan's division is sooo busy! Sometimes I go there to pick up Captain Ukitake's medicine, and I get the feeling that everyone is working hard with no rest! And Captain Unohana-- ahhh, if you see her get angry it's pretty scary! --That's what Neesan said, anyway.
