Soul Society arc
After Sōsuke Aizen's defection from Soul Society and Momo Hinamori's critical condition, Kyousuke was left to head Squad Five; that is, until Nathaniel Koroshiya was elected as Squad Five's temporary captain, when at that point Kyousuke acted as Squad Five's Lieutenant.
Kyousuke appears as a young man with navy blue hair and like colored eyes. One bang of his hair curves down between his eyes. He has a relatively slim body. He wears the standard Shihakushō and a silver badge on his sash.
Kyousuke is quite kind and caring. However, he has great leadership abilities, as seen when he directs the entirety of Squad Five on his own.

Kyousuke's Zanpakutō is sealed in the form of a standard katana with a black hilt and a rectangular guard with rounded corners and semi-circular slots in the narrow areas. Its name is unknown.
