  • It is notable that three of the current lieutenants, as well as two former captains, were once associated with the 5th Division. The lieutenants were personally recruited by former captain Aizen after their graduation from the academy. However, two of the three (Renji and Izuru) both found themselves leaving for other divisions before moving to their eventual lieutenant position. Only Momo Hinamori remained and rose to her position in the same division as her initial recruitment.
