The Thousand-Year Blood War arc[]

When the Wandenreich attack Soul Society, Genshirō is in Captain-Commander Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto's office. Stating he is leaving, Yamamoto orders Genshirō to stay behind and protect the 1st Division's barracks.[3] Later, he is caught up in Yhwach's destruction of the 1st Division's barracks.[4]

Later, Genshirō, having survived the explosion, is promoted to co-lieutenant of the 1st Division by Captain-Commander Shunsui Kyōraku, who wishes for him to share the position with Nanao Ise. After his promotion is approved, Shunsui assigns Genshirō to "practical business" as a lieutenant.[5]

During the Wandenreich's assault on the Soul King Palace, Shunsui observes the Auswählen's light rising up from the Seireitei. He tells Okikiba and Nanao that he may have to leave the Seireitei, saying that the Palace is in danger.[6]

Ten years after the Wandenreich's defeat, Genshirō attends the promotion ceremony for Rukia Kuchiki, the new captain of the 13th Division.[7]
