Fujimaru Kudō (宮能藤丸, Kudō Fujimaru) He is the 3rd Seated Officer of the Ninth Division. His sister is Matsuri Kudō.


Fujimaru has dirty blonde hair with two hairpieces on both sides of his bangs, and the middle on the bridge of his nose. Besides the standard Shinigami uniform, he wears a bright red ribbon in his hair that rests on his left shoulder. Much like his sister, his eyes are bright blue.


Fujimaru is very laid-back, as he is known to not take his work seriously, frequently sleeping in and often jokes about not wanting to do his work. However, he is shown to care about his duties as a Shinigami and fight Hollows whenever he is needed. Like his sister, his favorite food is apples. He also holds Matsuri in high regard and cares for her very much. He also highly respects Seigen Suzunami, as he is both Fujimaru and Matsuri's guardian, as well as their captain. He also cares a lot about Seigen's sister, Konoka Suzunami.


He and his sister, Matsuri, were under an attack from a Hollow when the 5th Division captain, Tomu Kurai saved them. Afterwards, he took them to Seigen Suzunami to have them looked after and so he adopted them into his noble family. After six years of attending the Shinō Academy, they joined the Gotei 13 and served under Seigen as ranked officers.

They went on several missions before the attempted Hollow invasion lead by Mad Eater he was almost killed by him but his sister used her Shikai to kill the Hollow. Afterwards after serious training he awakened his Shikai and became the 3rd Seat of the 9th Division. He later found out that his sister transferred to the 5th Division where she became even stronger.

Three months before the start of the series he witnessed his captain being defeated by his former lieutenant. Kaname Tosen. He tried to defend his captain and father but was easily cut down.
