十番隊隊長 Jūbantai Taicho

Jidanbō lacks emotional stability, falling to pieces after Ichigo breaks his axes. He was taught the rules of Rukongai by Kaien Shiba, and sets out these rules to those that he encounters, including Tōshirō Hitsugaya, with whom he is friendly.[3] He is kindly by nature, however, and the inhabitants of Rukongai who live around the West Gate think of him as a friend who looks out for them, as opposed to most Shinigami, whom they despise.
edit Plot
Soul Society arc

Ichigo Kurosaki and his friends confronted him after they tried to get into Seireitei. Ichigo opposed him and Jidanbō was soundly defeated. In recognition, Jidanbō opened the gate, but the group was stopped by Gin Ichimaru, who severed Jidanbō's left arm and closed the gate. In the anime, his injury was downplayed to a large cut on his arm. Orihime Inoue used her powers to heal Jidanbō's arm once it is maneuvered into place by some of Rukongai's residents. Jidanbō later accompanied Kūkaku Shiba into Seireitei. When Sōsuke Aizen appeared on the Sōkyoku Hill, Jidanbō and Kūkaku fought the other gatekeepers, who had come to the aid of Aizen.[4]
Bount arc (anime only)

Note: Events occurring in this arc are only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.

Jidanbō plays a small part in The Bount arc. He is guarding the Seireitei gate, but is defeated by Kariya and Koga. He later opens the gate so that Ichigo and friends can go through.
edit Powers & Abilities

Enhanced Strength: Due to his immense size, Jidanbō possesses tremendous strength, able to easily wield two gargantuan axes and have enough strength to lift a gate to Seireitei, despite not having done so in over three centuries. Jidanbō is reputed to have once killed 30 Hollows in a single swipe.[1]

Enhanced Endurance: Along with his physical might, he also possesses great endurance.

Axe Expert: Jidanbō fights with a pair of axes, with which he has developed two techniques, called Jutsu Pon Jidan Damatsuri Da (Jidan 10-hit festival) and Banzai Jiidan Damatsuri (10,000 year hit festival). These techniques involve Jidanbō attacking his opponent multiple times without break, and are ended with a more powerful blow.
edit Censorship

When Gin scolds Jidanbō for letting Ichigo go through the gate, he cuts off his entire arm in the manga. In the anime, he only makes a small gash in his arm.
