One hundred and ten years before the start of the series, in which Shinji Hirako is approached as the fifth division captain by then, the fifth division lieutenant Sōsuke Aizen hears about preparations for the new twelfth division captain. Yoruichi Shihōin tells Kisuke Urahara that she has recommended him for the position as the new twelfth division captain, while they are sparring in their private training area. Suì-Fēng, immediately distrusting Urahara because of what she has seen of his persona and his dwelling, follows him around town to prove to Yoruichi that he is not worthy of the responsibility required for the new position. Yoruichi, however, after seeing Suì-Fēng's proof on paper, disregards it as a love letter. Urahara and a group of Soul Reapers were tailing a group of deserters who had abandoned the Seireitei of their own admonition and sent to stop them. After they are taken care of, Urahara passes the qualification exam and shows up to the meeting of the captains.
