Tatsufusa Enjōji (円乗寺 辰房, Enjōji Tatsufusa) is the 3rd Seat of the Eighth Division.
He is a large, beefy man with thick, bushy eyebrows and long, double-braided hair. He wears a customized version of the standard Shinigami uniform, which leaves the left side of his chest and abdomen bare. He has a tattoo of three tomoe, much like those featured upon the tsuba of his Zanpakutō, encircling each other on his left shoulder.
Tatsufusa has a considerable ego; upon confronting Sado, he proclaims that since he was stationed at his post, none of "his kind" had managed to get past him. His mannerisms while engaged in combat are equally exaggerated, swinging his sword in a random, almost idiotic fashion while simultaneously making ridiculous sound effects. Tatsufusa secretly has feelings for the 2nd Division Captain Suì-Fēng.
Soul Society arc
When Yasutora Sado storms into the Eighth Division's barracks, Tatsufusa attempts to halt his advance towards Rukia Kuchiki's location. Proudly announcing his rank to the taciturn youth, the seated officer proclaims that he will get no further, before launching into a bizarre display of his swordsmanship, wildly swinging his sword about himself. When Sado fails to react to his "great technique", Tatsufusa questions if the Ryoka is frightened of his prowess, stating that it is only natural, as no one has ever gotten past his impenetrable defense. Having declared this, the seated officer is then swiftly defeated by a single punch to the face from Sado, sending him flying. As Tatsufusa lies unconscious on the ground, Sado remarks that there were too many openings in the man's attack.
