77Ganju's Gang confronts

The gang confronts Ichigo's friends.

Their boss, Ganju Shiba gets into a fight with Ichigo Kurosaki that spills onto the streets. They immediately step in and prevent Ichigo's friends from helping out by blocking Uryū Ishida, Yasutora Sado and Orihime Inoue with their boars.[1] When the alarm strapped to Hawk's back begins to sound, they panic and inform Ganju of the time. They all leave and rush off together on their boars, their boss included.[2] One of the members, Hawk, later cooks food for Ganju and the Ryoka. [3] When Ganju is about to go to Seireitei together with the Ryoka, the gang listens to his speech and are moved by his words. [4]

Bount arc[]


Hawk and Fever attend the casino in Kusajishi before Kariya arrives.

Two gang members, Hawk and Fever, are hanging out in a Kusajishi casino when Jin Kariya enters the place to make a bid for the locals to invade the Seireitei. The two sneak out at the first sign of trouble and run to report what they saw to Kūkaku Shiba. Claiming to have gone there to do research, they are punished by Kūkaku for having done something forbidden and for lying about it.[5]

The gang follows Ganju, Sado and Orihime through the forests of the Rukongai as they head towards Kusajishi.[5] They don't get there as fast as Ichigo, who refused to ride a boar. They find some thugs from Kusajishi and, after Ganju defeats them, learn about how Kariya is uniting the thugs of Kusajishi in order to revolt against the Seireitei. Ganju decides to find Daiji Hirasago in order to learn more. Hawk is apprehensive about this, believing it to be possible for Daiji to have joined Kariya but Ganju reassures him that Daiji would never do such a thing.[6] They find Daiji's Gang and learn that Kariya's new recruits are little more than rabble with no Reiatsu thus shouldn't present much of a problem for the Shinigami in battle.[7]
