  • He is a low ranking noble who reside in the Artic of the human world


He has blue hair and wears a icy blue shinigami uniform most likely due to his hair and the nature of his Zanpakutō.


Fairly calm and gets along with most people.



Kano is unlike most of the lower noble families, instead of residing in the Seretei his family lived in the human world in the Artic. Due to that he developed a love for nature especially for winter. When he was only 15 he ventured out in a blizzard where he met his Zanpakutō spirit which is a polar bear. Due to his father being a shinigami he never had to go to the Soul Reaper Academy and thus never took the exam to enlist in the Gotei 13.

Zero Division Recruitment Arc

He's only been seen fighting several un-seated officers in the 5th Division courtyard in which he buried them in a pile of snow. He just recently learned of the new mission concerning Hueco Mundo but said someone with his skills is not suited to fight the threat of Arrancars and high level Shinigami.

Second Coming of Aizen Arc

He was seen in the fourth chapter of the arc with Yoko trying to relay a message to captains Tsuyoshi and Fujin.

Powers and Abilities

Kano has only shown basic shinigami skills and nothing more. However his Kido level is below average as performing a level 20 Hado spell is extremely difficult for him.

  • Umi: Repsects her slighty only due to her posistion in the 5th Divsion and not her abilities.
