Harunobu Ogidō (荻堂春信, Ogidō Harunobu) is the 8th Seat of the Fourth Division as well as the second leader of the first relief team.
Harunobu has dark brown hair with brown eyes and wears the standard Shinigami uniform, with a rope strap that connects the relief pack on his back. He also seems to wear white gloves. Unbeknownst to him, he is popular among the female Shinigami for his effortless attractiveness.
Harunobu is dedicated to his work, as he is often seen leading his First Relief team around Seireitei. He and Yasochika Iemura annoy each other, with one instance leading up to Iemura drawing his Zanpakutō. He is very popular with the ladies, as most of the 4th Division's mail is addressed to him from the women of the Soul Society. He is also a member of the Shinigami Men's Association.
Soul Society Arc
Hanrunobu arrives at Sōkyoku Hill along with the various platoons of the Fourth Division to assist in the healing after Sōsuke Aizen's betrayal is revealed. He then interrupts Iemura's thoughts about Orihime Inoue, causing his superior to get angry and lash out, forcing Hanrunobu to block the attack and assert that he has contacted Retsu Unohana about the situation.

Following the battle at the Sixth Division barracks, Hanrunobu arrives with a contingent from the Fourth Division to help treat the wounded Shinigami present. He informs Unohana that they had previously found Izuru Kira, Ikkaku Madarame, and Yumichika Ayasegawa. He is then ordered to heal the injured officers.
