Appearance / Description:
Wears the normal Death god outfit and over it he wears the 11th division robe. Zaraki has a funky hairdo he spikes his hair and at the tips he adds bells. Why does he do this? So his opponents can stand a better chance when they fight him. Hearing the bells according to him will make it easier to hear him coming, His eye patch as sated before eats his spirit force since his spirit force is so enormous that he cant control it.
A little about him: Ruthless, strong, fierce, and scary. Zaraki Kenpachi is the captain of the 11th division. He fights for himself, and wants to become stronger as well. Even though he doesn’t know his swords name, this doesn’t mean his power is to be taken lightly. His astonishing spirit force is more than enough to make him part of the Gotei 13. His spirit force is so grand that he can’t control it, which is why he wears the eyes patch. It eats his spirit force so he doesn’t go all out on his opponents. He has shown that he loves to fight. Fighting is everything to him; the stronger his opponent is will make his fight much more enjoyable. Even if he’s at risk of dying he won’t back up on a fight.
His division: Although Zaraki appears to be ruthless, fierce, and scary he is a good captain. If needed he will aid his division members. As he showed when Ikkaku was about to be attacked by Mayuri. Zaraki stopped Mayuri in time and saved his squad member. Yachiru his vice captain and Zaraki seem to have a strong bond. Since they are always together. He met her before he entered the Gotei 13 and became captain. Although they seem like complete opposites they get along well. She gets away with calling him “Kenchan”, and he doesn’t mind it either.
Opponents thus far in the anime: Previous 11th division captain, Kurosaki Ichigo, Tousen Kaname, and Komamura Sajin. This is only for anime not for manga.
Unknown? We have yet to see Yachiru in action with her zanpakutou. However, it is appropriately short to match her height with a flower shaped guard.
Eleventh Division Vice-Captain Kusajika Yachiru is very tiny, and very adorable with her bubblegum pink hair. She wears the normal shinigami robes, and thus far we have only seen her with the vice-captain insignia on her arm. She appears to be the youngest, as well as the smallest, among the captains and vice-captains, but she is respected throughout her division. Generally she’s seen hanging on to Zaraki Kenpachi’s shoulder. Yachiru makes up nicknames for the people she knows, including “Ichi” for Ichigo, “Big Boobies” for Orihime, and “Ken-chan” for Kenpachi.
Yachiru first appears in volume ten, hopping from the roof of a building onto Kenpachi’s shoulder as he makes his way to find and fight Ichigo. She has a horrible sense of direction, but despite that Kenpachi listens to her directions, which get him lost every time. Even though she and her captain appear to be polar opposites, she is utterly devoted to Kenpachi, and he to her. When Yachiru’s hyper-activity and Kenpachi’s constantly serious and power hungry demeanor are combined, a comically sweet relationship becomes evident.
She first met Kenpachi in one of the worst districts of Rukongai, the 79th district of the North Alley, Kusajika, as a nameless baby. She crawled over to him after he had killed several other men with his unnamed zanpakutou, and was completely unphased by the violence she had just witnessed or the blood on the sword. Even as Kenpachi warned her that the sword was dangerous, she reached out and touched it, giggling as her hand was covered in the blood of dead men. He adopted her after that, saving her from certain death in Rukongai. He named her Yachiru – “The name of the only person I ever cared about…I’ll give it to you.”
There is some speculation that Yachiru’s post as vice-captain of the eleventh squad is based on nepotism. However, in the brief appearances of Yachiru’s serious side, we have seen that she is extremely fast and strong enough to carry Kenpachi, who is twice her height and more than six times her weight. Also, no one appears to harbor feelings of ill will against her, even though the seated shinigami of the eleventh division seem to be vice-captain or captain level.
In serious situations, Yachiru will take control when Kenpachi is indisposed. For example, she took over leading Orihime, Ishida, Chad, and Ganju to the Soukyoku when Kenpachi was faced with the prospect of fighting Komamura and Tousen. When the execution proceedings began, Yachiru used her super speed to go ahead and try to delay the execution as a favor to Orihime, who she seems to have taken a particular liking to, perhaps because of their similar innocent natures.
Most of Yachiru’s appearances are for comic relief, though her serious side is pretty scary. She is an intimidating figure when she wants to be. She is cute and quirky, and the president of the Shinigami Women’s Association. It seems that Ikkaku takes care of most of the vice-captain paperwork, probably because Yachiru doesn’t think it’s worth her time. From what we’ve seen in the color omake, her weakness is candy and one of her favorite things to do appears to be to run around like crazy and drive Ikkaku crazy.
For all her faults, Yachiru appears to be a competent leader, and the one of the cutest characters in Bleach. When she decides she likes someone she’ll go to any means to help them when they need it.
