First Appearance

Hotaru Takahashi (鷹橋蛍, Takahashi Hotaru) is a Shinigami allied with the Gotei Remnant following the events of the Collapse, being one of its few survivors. Prior to this, Hotaru was a member of the Thirteenth Division, working as its 6th Seat.


Hotaru bears the appearance of a young man with vibrant pink hair, kept short and neat in order for it to not get in the way of battle. While once seen with a cheerful expression across his face all the time, he has recently been seen in less than pleasant moods due to the current circumstances that he faces. Hotaru's physique is of average height and breadth, bearing a rather average build for a Shinigami of his rank. Finally, he is noted for his dark eyes framed within his black, rectangular lenses along with average facial features. Hotaru's general attire consists of the Shinigami's Shihakushō, the only differentiating aspect being his obi, which is in fact a much tighter belt that holsters two blades rather than one.

Behind the Scenes

  • Hotaru's current appearance is based off of Shihō Kimizuki from Owari no Seraph. Hotaru's previous appearance was inspired by both Kūkai Sōma from Shugo Chara! and Keisuke from Togainu no Chi.
  • Hotaru's zanpakutō, Razumi should technically be pronounced as Rantsuno. However, due to the author utilizing the nanori readings rather than the standard kun'yomi or on'yomi reading. Note, given that the nanori reading is exclusively for the construction of names, the reading of the zanpakutō's name is technically not incorrect due to it being a name.
