Sajin Komamura (狛村 左陣, Komamura Sajin) is the captain of the 7th Division. His lieutenant is Tetsuzaemon Iba.


Komamura likes the Human World's puppy shows.[3]


Bount arc (anime only)[]


Hisagi reports to Komamura.

When the Bount manage to invade the Seireitei, Shūhei Hisagi reports to Komamura about the large numbers of Shinigami that are attacking other Shinigami. He elaborates that this unusual phenomenon is being cause by the special ability of the Bount Mabashi and his Doll Ritz. Komamura asks if there is a way to break the control the Doll has over the Shinigami but Hisagi replies that it is extremely difficult to remove Ritz from whomever she possesses unless it is done when the person is dead. Komamura, alongside Hsagi, decides to go out and combat those Shinigami who have been possessed by Ritz.[4]


Komamura fends off a possessed Shinigami.

When a group of the possessed individuals are defeated, Komamura suggests to his subordinates that they move them to the Fourth Division barracks as if anyone knows what to do it would be Captain Unohana. He continues to battle other crowds of possessed Shinigami, using his Reiatsu to knock out many of them at once. Despite this, one of the Shinigami manages to stab him in the chest causing many members of his squad to worry abut his safety. Komamura easily pushes the Shinigami away and tells his subordinates to focus on keeping themselves protected.[4] Along with Kyōraku and Unohana, Komamura reports to Yamamoto after Mabashi's defeat. They discuss the growing numbers of casualties within the Seireitei but how many of the formerly possessed Shinigami should recover with time.[5]


Komamura reports to Yamamoto about his fear regarding Ran'Tao's information.

Kyōraku and Yamamoto reveal to the others that Jin Kariya has managed to come into possession of one of the Jōkaishō which can potentially be disastrous for the Seireitei. Komamura insists that given that the information came from a known criminal named Ran'Tao, then the knowledge that the Jōkaishō was destructive could be misleading. Yamamotot calmly dismisses his concerns, however, and orders the captains to hunt down all the Bount.[5] When only Kariya remains as the last threat from the Bounts, many of the captains are sent out to diffuse the other Jōkaishō. Hitsugaya wonders where Komamura is and Isane Kotetsu informs him that Komamura has been ordered to remain by the side of Yamamoto in order to protect him from Kariya.[6]

The New Captain Shūsuke Amagai arc (anime only)[]


Komamura explains how Amagai was part of the Patrol Corps.

He is present at the promotion ceremony of the new captain of the 3rd Division, Shūsuke Amagai. Upon Amagai's arrival Komamura notes to himself that his Zanpakutō is a Kodachi. Komamura asks Shunsui Kyōraku, who he thinks observed his captain's proficiency exam, his opinion on the new captain. Shunsui plainly states it doesn't really matter, as they should be happy that the Gotei 13 have one less position open. Suì-Fēng interjects despite that Amagai will have to prove himself. Later that day, Komamura stands with Iba at the grave stone of Tōsen's dead friend. He remarks that the 3rd Division is going to take action at the recent incident of Hollow incursion. He tells Iba that the Seireitei may be moving toward change, when Iba looks at him confused, Komamura explains that someone from one of the patrol units has suddenly become a new captain. He maintains that it has never happened before. Iba says that it may be true, but he wonders who the other two captains who tested him were. Komamura tells him he doesn't know, but he knows that something new is coming.[7]

Zanpakutō Unknown Tales arc (anime only)[]


Komamura is defeated by his Zanpakutō.

Komamura is called by a Hell Butterfly to an emergency meeting by Captain-Commander Yamamoto, but upon arrival, the Captain- Commander is nowhere to be found. 1st Division lieutenant, Chōjirō Sasakibe, shows up injured and collapses and then a mysterious figure appears, who announces that the Captain-Commander wont be showing up, alarming everyone in attendance. Upon hearing this, Komamura immediately gets in close to the stranger and begins to get angry, asking the stranger what has he done with Yamamoto. When the stranger doesn't answer, Komamura becomes even more enraged and states he will then crush him and takes out his Zanpakutō. The mysterious stranger moves out of the way and Komamura releases his Bankai, the stranger tells him that his powers won't work on him and when Komamura prepares for attack, Kokujō Tengen Myō'ō instead attacks him. Komamura moves at the last minute, but is greatly surprised, his Bankai then dissipates and he gets up to face another being, he is unsure at first who this new arrival is, but then he realizes it is Tenken; his Zanpakutō Spirit has materialized in its true form. Tenken then moves to attack, but Komamura blocks it. Eventually, the short fight ends with Tenken throwing ropes around Komamura, then, proving to be stronger than Komamura, drags him close and then deals a devastating blow to the captain, leaving him lying on the ground unconscious.[8]

When the Shinigami were forced to retreat, Iba and Hisagi carry him off. He then undergoes medical treatment with the rest of the Shinigami injured by the renegade Zanpakutō at the 4th Division's medical facility.[9] Later, he arrives in Karakura Town together with Tenken, and the other Zanpakutō and Shinigami.[10] Still not quite fully recovered from his earlier injuries, Sajin sees this battle as a chance to get back in shape. He quickly unleashes his Bankai and begins slaying Gillians. Muramasa's Garganta prevents the number of Gillian from decreasing. Sajin and his allies turn their attention to the Garganta and use their combined Reiatsu to close it.[11] Soon after, the Gillians are destroyed, and the dome collapses with Ichigo defeating Muramasa.[12]

Gotei 13 Invading Army arc (anime only)[]

Sajin is present for a captain's meeting called by Yamamoto regarding disappearances in the Dangai. He listens to Mayuri's report that there is a time gap in the Dangai and his request to conduct a study to identify the cause.[13] Some time later, Sajin accompanies a number of other captains and lieutenants to the Human World, which causes Kagerōza Inaba to retreat.[14]

When Zaraki, Hitsugaya, Byakuya, and he head out to Soul Society through the Dangai, Komamura decides to use his Bankai to hold the current back. He is swallowed up by the current, trapping him in the Dangai.[15] Komamura later arrives in Soul Society, interrupting a fight between Kenpachi and a Reigai of Suì-Fēng. He apologizes for being late, saying that it took him a while to get through the Dangai. He takes Kenpachi's place in fighting the Reigai Suì-Fēng (while ignoring Zaraki's protests). Kenpachi and Yachiru leave, with the latter wishing him good luck.[16]


Sajin fights the Reigai of Suì-Fēng.

Komamura fights against Reigai Suì-Fēng, their battle proceeding through the use of Shikai and hand-to-hand combat However, as the battle progresses, Komamura finds himself hopelessly outmatched against Reigai-Suì-Fēng's Shunkō. He manages to reach a stalemate with her, resulting in both of them utilizing their Bankai. Komamura's Bankai proceeds to destroy Reigai-Suì-Fēng's missile fired from her Bankai, resulting in her defeat. He then attempts to go and help out Yamamoto, but collapses from severe exhaustion.[17] He is later healed and joins the other captains to aid Ichigo and Kisuke against their Reigai pursuers.[18]

While the captains soon become overwhelmed by the Reigai's sheer power and numbers, the lieutenants later arrive and aid their respective captains. Sajin then unleashes his Bankai and joins his lieutenant in fighting their respective Reigai.[19] Despite this assistance, the Reigai still pressure the Shinigami. Byakuya Kuchiki then realizes the truth behind the Reigai's battle style: they value self-preservation the most and won't attack first in fear of being outnumbered. Learning this, Sajin directly teams up with his lieutenant, voicing that such tactics won't defeat them.[20]

Later, the resurrected Ōko Yushima begins his endgame, using his Renzan: Hajō Kūri technique to begin destroying Soul Society. Sajin realizes from the Reigai's expression that they weren't expecting this to happen. Before the Shinigami can act, the Reigai step forward, saying that they will stop their fellow Mod-Soul's chaotic plan, as their goal has always been to protect Soul Society in their own way. The Reigai then destroy the technique at the cost of their own lives.[21]
