"Captain Osuma was...a singular individual. Many considered him a figure of legend; while he was not the first Captain of our Division, or the first Kenpachi, he seemed to fit that same mold. Osuma was a man of strength who did what he could to encourage and grow the strength in others. He believed in leading his men and women from the battlefield, and cared about their success and failure."
Of course, he'd also done little to change the negative attitudes and "traditions" of the Division. But to the man who'd murdered Osuma, Masaru would not speak a breath of such critique.
