Appearance

Volume55Ch481Sketch

Lisa's hairstyle seventeen months later.

Lisa's appearance is of a young adult woman with turquoise eyes, red oval glasses and long black hair. Her hair has bangs in the front and she keeps the back in a braided ponytail. She dresses in a long sleeved sailor fuku, with a teal green/blue collar and matching pleated miniskirt that ends at her stomach, completed with a pink neckerchief. (In contrast to the Western-style uniforms worn by the students of Karakura High School). During her time in Soul Society she wore a variation of the standard Shinigami robes. She wore a shortened hakama resembling a skirt. Her hair was in two braided pigtails though slightly shorter and was much more well kept with straight bangs. She also wore red squared glasses as opposed to the oval ones she currently wears.

Seventeen months after the war against Aizen, Lisa's hairstyle is changed, now tied back into a high, shoulder-length ponytail with chin-length bangs on either side of her face.[3]

Personality

In comparison to her comrades, Lisa is one of the calmer, more sensible members of the Visored, showing a quite stern, detached and secretive demeanor at most points, although she is somewhat temperamental and easily irritable. Her hobbies include reading erotic manga (specifically, josei genre) or swimsuit magazines, which she often lends to her fellow Visored, including Love and Ichigo (who denies it). She is also very curious, and had a habit of spying on the captain's meetings during her time in Soul Society. Despite her rather distant personality, she appears to care about her fellow Visored, as shown when she warned Kensei about an attack from a Hollowfied Ichigo. She has shown to have a playful side similar to her former captain, Shunsui Kyōraku, as the two were close and shared in mutual advances toward each other.

History

Ep206YoungerLisa

Lisa Yadōmaru as she appeared 110 years ago.

Approximately 110 years ago, Lisa was the lieutenant of the 8th Division under then Captain Shunsui Kyōraku. Lisa was first seen arriving at the 1st Division Headquarters with her captain, Kyōraku, and Captain Jūshirō Ukitake of the 13th Division. When Kyōraku entered into a conversation about promptness with Captain Love Aikawa of the 7th Division, Lisa interrupted them stating how they were prompt because she groped him to wake him up, to which Kyōraku tried to shush her because it would be inappropriate to address such things in public. She then silently followed her captain as he and the other captains commented on the status of the Gotei 13. She then bore witness to Kyōraku explaining to 5th Division Lieutenant Sōsuke Aizen the existence of the Royal Guard.[4]

Episode210LisaEavesDrops

Lisa spying on the captain's meeting.

Ten years later, she was known to engage in reading to the youngest female member of the 8th Division, Nanao Ise, the future lieutenant of the 8th Division, during the first day of each month. During one of these days, an emergency meeting was called by General Yamamoto to address the disappearance of the members of the 9th Division investigation team who themselves were sent to find victims of mysterious disappearances in Rukongai.[5][6] The General then decided to send both the Kidō Captain Tessai Tsukabishi and Kidō Lieutenant Hachigen Ushōda of the Kidō Corps to the disappearance sight as part of an investigation team.

Ep210LisaRunning

Lisa rushes to the Rukongai Investigation Site.

He is interrupted by Captain Kyōraku, who suggested that it would be unwise to send both of them into an unknown situation. He suggested instead to send Lisa and called for her, with her revealing that she was eavesdropping on the meeting the entire time. When Kyōraku plainly scolded her and reminded her that he had previously said not to listen in on captains' meetings, she plainly stated that it was Human nature to be curious about secrets. Lisa agreed to go along with the investigation team formed of Captain Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi of the 3rd Division, Captain Shinji Hirako of the 5th Division, Love, and Hachi.[7]

Ep210RoseLisaPrepareToBattle

Rose and Lisa preparing to take down Kensei.

Lisa was right behind Love as they showed up at the site of the disappearances after Shinji, she then noticed a Hollowfied Kensei Muguruma and was greatly surprised at his current state. She watched in amazement as Kensei let out a large scream. Shinji stated that he didn't know if it was Kensei, but that if they didn't draw their swords they were as good as dead. Lisa watched as Love went to attack the Hollowfied Kensei and saw that Love was outmatched and attacked. Lisa took out her Zanpakutō and resolved to attack Kensei alongside Rose without killing him. Lisa noted that there was more than one way to stop him without killing him as she resolved to cut his tendons. As the two moved to attack Kensei, Lisa was surprised, but was too late to warn Rose as he was brutally attacked from behind by a Hollowfied Mashiro Kuna.[8]

Episode211LisaHurt

Lisa is hurt against Kensei.

Lisa eventually ended up fighting Kensei and was noticeably losing the fight, but before he could land a devastating punch, he was attacked from behind by Rose who fired a Kidō blast at him. Rose told him to stop as he didn't use to be the sort of weakling who would attack a woman. Kensei proceeded toward him, but Rose was saved by the intervention of Hachi who used Bakudō #99: "Kin". Lisa and the others began discussing what to do next when Hiyori attacked Shinji and revealed herself to be Hollowfied as well. Before anyone could act, a darkness fell around the rescue squad and they were attacked by an unseen assailant.[9]

Bleach Episode211LisaDarkness

Lisa trapped in Tōsen's Bankai just before defeat.

The assailant is then found to be Kaname Tōsen, Muguruma's 6th seat, who was acting under the orders of Aizen, the one behind the disappearances and Hollowfication experiments.[10] Aizen explains his motivations and plans to Shinji, and that he actually chose to be his lieutenant because his suspicious attitude towards Aizen were perfect for his plans. Aizen suggests that Shinji apologize to those lying around him.

Ep211LisaHollowfies

Lisa begins Hollowfying.

Angry, Shinji moves to attack his lieutenant only to begin Hollowfying himself. All around him, the injured Shinigami begin developing masks and Hollowfying as well. Just as Aizen gave the order to kill the Hollowfied Shinigami, Captain Kisuke Urahara of the 12th Division and Tessai, showed up and saved them from destruction.[11] Aizen, Gin, and Tōsen made their escape and Tessai used a Forbidden Kidō to preserve and transport the rescue squad to the 12th Division barracks. In his lab, Urahara tried to reverse the process using his created item, the Hōgyoku.[12] Unfortunately, it ended up as a failed process, not having the desired effect Urahara expected.[13]

Ep212VisoredGathered

Aizen's victims in the underground chamber.

The next day, Urahara and Tessai were arrested under the orders of the Central 46. The Hollowfied Shinigami were sentenced to execution as Hollows. But before any of their sentences could be executed, however, both were rescued by Yoruichi Shihōin, who brought them to a secret underground area.[14] In the secluded area, she had also brought Hachi and the other Hollowfied Shinigami, along with the prototype for the new Gigai that Urahara was working on. With that epiphany, Urahara resolved to make ten Reiatsu-blocking Gigai to aid him, Tessai, and the eight victims escaped to the Real World, where they would find a way to undo the Hollowfication process.[15]


Plot

Arrancar arc

Lisa And Erotic Manga

Lisa reading erotic manga.

Lisa is present when Ichigo Kurosaki arrives at the warehouse of the Visored, planning to "use" them to help him control his inner Hollow.[16] Later, Lisa is sitting on a floor and reading her manga while Ichigo and Hiyori fight each other.[17] She is alerted when Ichigo's inner Hollow takes over and attack's Hiyori.[18] When she witnesses Ichigo's inner Hollow nearly choking Hiyori to death, she, as well as the other Visored, quickly restrain Ichigo before he can kill her.[19]

While Ichigo is training on his own, the other Visored are sitting around. Kensei asks Lisa if she is on guard duty can she make sure to watch Ichigo. Lisa tells him that she is keeping an eye on him even though she is more concerned with reading her manga and tells Kensei to leave her alone. Kensei simply states that he knows that she isn't paying attention cause she is more concerned with reading her porn magazine.[20]

Lisa kicks Ichigo

Lisa kicks a Hollowfied Ichigo.

Lisa later goes with the other Visored down into his underground training area.[21] Lisa waits with the other Visored while Ichigo's inner Hollow emerges to take control over his body. Upon possession, Lisa asks Hachi to open the barrier he has placed around Ichigo, stating she will start the fight against Ichigo's Inner Hollow. Shinji asks her not to kill him to which Lisa responds that would be assuming he doesn't kill her first. Lisa enters that barrier and introduces herself as they begin to fight, which results in her right arm being injured.[22] As Lisa finishes up her time fighting against the Hollowfied Ichigo, before he can attack her, Kensei steps in and attacks Ichigo, telling Lisa it's time they switch.[23]

Ep124LisaTired

Lisa tired after her battle with Hollowfied Ichigo.

After the fight, Lisa leaves the barrier and is forced to try and catch her breath. She asks Shinji how much break time they get, he mentions to her that since there are eight of them total in the rotation, ten minutes times 8 people would equal to eighty minutes. Though he is shortly corrected by Hiyori and corrects himself stating that it would be seventy minutes. Lisa thinks to herself that Ichigo is strong, much stronger than she had originally thought.[24] While Kensei fights the Hollowfied Ichigo, Lisa thinks of the amount of time required to subjugate the inner Hollow, noting that its supposed to be an hour, more or less. Within the amount of time required the next time the rotation reaches her, it will be the end of training.[25] She later watches as Love fights against Ichigo, taking note that she is next in the rotation. She asks the other Visored what's the longest time any of them have ever taken in the inner Hollow subjugation battles. Kensei notes to her that Hiyori took sixty-nine minutes and 2 seconds and tells her that Ichigo is up to sixty-eight minutes and 44 seconds. Lisa witnesses as the Hollowfied Ichigo prepares to fire a Cero at Love. Lisa yells to Love that it's a Cero to which he yells back that he is aware of it, but before the fight can go further, Ichigo's Hollow form begins to rupture. Lisa looks on when Ichigo defeats his inner Hollow and gains back control over his body, he passes out.[26]

Ep212VisoredMoveOut

Lisa leaving with the other Visored.

The Visored are surprised when Hachi alerts them that someone has slipped inside the protective barrier he had erected around the warehouse. When the trespasser is revealed to be Orihime Inoue[27], who had been looking for Ichigo, they are stunned that a simple Human could breach a barrier created by Hachi, who specializes in barriers. She then asks an irritated Kensei not to kill her.[28] Shortly after Orihime leaves, Kensei asks who she was to which Lisa comments that she only talked to Ichigo and left quickly. When Shinji tells them who she is, how she is the love of his life, Lisa comments on how he says that about all the cute girls and how he used to say the same thing about her.[29]

Sometime later, Lisa gets into an argument with Ichigo when she questions if he has any talent. Ichigo comments how she isn't even involved in his training as she is involved in her porno magazines. But Lisa counters that she loaned him one of those magazines to which Ichigo immediately denies. Love admits that he borrows them as well and Lisa comments that she reads them two times a day. Ichigo states that he knows she has a dirty mind. Lisa retorts that she doesn't have a dirty mind, just a healthy interest.[30] Lisa is later seen leaving the warehouse with the other Visored to fight in the upcoming conflict.[31]


Fake Karakura Town arc

Lisa talks to Shunsui

Lisa tells Shunsui not to play dead.

Lisa arrives in the Fake Karakura Town with the rest of the Visored just after Hooleer releases Aizen, Gin and Tōsen from Yamamoto's fire prison.[32] When Shinji asks his fellow Visored if they have anyone in the Gotei 13 whom they want to speak to, Lisa remains silent and goes to briefly speak with Shunsui, her former captain. She then steps on his head and reprimands him for "playing dead". Shunsui reveals that he was fine all along and tells her that he can't believe it, as she has grown so pretty since the last time he last saw her. Lisa kicks him in the face and tells him to just lie there while she shows him how strong she has gotten. As she walks off, Shunsui tells her that he is glad that she is alright. She simply calls him an idiot and uses Shunpo to move back to the Visored.[33] When Shinji returns from speaking to Captain-Commander Yamamoto, the huge Hollow creature, Hooleer, spews forth a large horde of Gillian-class Menos from its mouth. Lisa is among the Visored when they put on their masks to prepare for battle.[34]

Ep279LisaKillsMenos

Lisa swiftly slashing a Gillian into pieces within moments.

Lisa stands ready for battle as the other Visored draw their Zanpakutō and attack the Gillian.[35] As Hachi finishes off a group of Gillian, Lisa cuts one of the lopped off heads in half with ease. She tells Hachi to move it and stop throwing his enemies her way. She then moves to a Gillian that prepares to fire a Cero, but before it can, she completely shreds it in the blink of an eye.[36]

Lisa vs Harribel

Lisa confronts Tier Harribel alone.

Lisa then intervenes when Tier Harribel tries to strike Captain Tōshirō Hitsugaya of the 10th Division from behind, striking her from above which forces the Espada back. Hitsugaya then states that there is no point of questioning if the Visored are friend or foe under the circumstances. Lisa comments that the enemy of her enemy is her friend and that's all the reason she needs. [37] While Hiyori and Hitsugaya engage in a childish fight, Lisa becomes irritated and decides to attack Harribel head on. Harribel comments on Lisa being the first, considering how she figured all three would attack her at once. Lisa notes that its unexpected, as she thought so too.[38]

Lisa, while masked, continues to battle Harribel and then releases her Shikai. Harribel is then alerted when Hiyori Sarugaki releases her Shikai and attacks her as well, followed by Hitsugaya who does the same. They all converge on her causing a large explosion.[39] The battle is cut short, however, when Aizen intrudes and cuts down Harribel. [40]

Ep293LisasSpearIsBroken

Lisa's Shikai is broken by Aizen.

Along with the several captains and Visored, Lisa stands forward to protect Ichigo Kurosaki from Aizen and his Shikai abilities.[41] After Shinji explains that protecting Ichigo is important and that the battle is all of theirs, Lisa charges at Aizen with Shinji, Rose, and Love, but has her Zanpakutō's blade cut clean off and is struck down before she can do him any harm.[42] She survives the battle and her wounds are patched up by Unohana. She worries over the current status of Hiyori as she sits next to her and is shocked when she learns that Unohana considers the Visored to be their allies.[43]


The Thousand-Year Blood War arc

After returning from a bath, Hiyori Sarugaki asks Lisa why no one is replying to her to let her in. Lisa tells her that Love has gone to the store and that Hachi has the key and that he went to a cafe.[44]

When Hiyori makes the Visored help her fix the distortion between the Human World and the Soul Society, Lisa questions if the task involves her as well.[45]

Powers & Abilities

Ep279LisaKillsMenos

Lisa uses Senmaioroshi to defeat a Menos Grande.

Expert Swordsman: She appears to be ambidextrous, initially wielding her Zanpakutō with her left hand and then switching to her right during her fight with Ichigo Kurosaki. She also is shown using a style that employs a lot of agility, by frequently jumping, somersaulting, and flipping.[46] Her skill in swordsmanship allowed her to take on a Hollowfied captain-level combatant, and later 3rd Espada Tier Harribel, with only her sealed Zanpakutō.[47][48][49]

  • Senmaioroshi (千枚卸, Thousand-Page Wholesale)[50]: A technique where multiple blade movements take place so fast that they can literally shred a target into pieces.[51]

Hakuda Expert: She is quite agile and flexible in combat and was willing to fight Ichigo as a Hollow with a combination of hand-to-hand combat and swordsmanship, which suggests she has good hand-to-hand combat skills.[46][21]

  • Panty-Flash Tornado (パンチラトルネード, Panchira Torunēdo)[50]: A technique where Lisa does an upside rotating straddle split, similar to a tornado, which has the effect of delivering a multiple kick attack at opponent that is near her.[52]

Shunpo Expert: Lisa is fast enough to have arrived at the site of the investigation when leaders of the 9th Division went missing around the same time as the captains that were sent to investigate.[53]

Enhanced Speed: Her speed is considerable and she regularly uses it to supplement her swordsmanship skill.[54]

High Spiritual Power: Lisa possesses lieutenant-class Reiryoku.[2] Being a Visored, Lisa possesses a dual-type spiritual energy, part Shinigami and part Hollow.[55]

Zanpakutō

Haguro Tonbo (鉄漿蜻蛉, Iron Drink Dragonfly): Lisa's Zanpakutō is considerably longer than most; resembling a nōdachi with a dark blue hilt wrapping and a square tsuba with two rectangular attachments on two ends.

Ep283LisaShikaiHaguroTonbo

Lisa's Shikai.

  • Shikai: Its Shikai command is Smash (潰せ, tsubuse). Lisa first slams the hilt of her Zanpakutō into the mouth of its scabbard before twirling it over her head with both of her hands. As she then twirls it around her body, the Shikai command prompts it to quickly lengthen into an exceptionally long pole arm outfitted with a blade reminiscent of that of a Monk's spade on one end, and a heavy ball on its other end. This allows the bladed end to be used much like an axe, and the weighted end to be used as a smashing implement.[56]
Shikai Special Ability: Unknown



Hollowfication

Lisa Mask (ep279)

Lisa's Hollow Mask.

Hollow Mask: Her Hollow mask is lozenge-shaped with a cross-shaped opening, instead of a mouth and eye slits. However, the horizontal opening allows her to see in front of her.[57]

Power Augmentation: While wearing the mask, Lisa's Hollow powers supplement her Shinigami powers, giving her a vast increase in both strength and speed.
  • Enhanced Strength: While wearing her Hollow mask, Lisa has shown that she can cut through a Menos Grande using her sword with only one hand.[58]


Appearances in Other Media

Lisa appears as a playable character in the Bleach: Heat the Soul series for the PSP. In Bleach: Heat the Soul 4, Bleach: Heat the Soul 5, and Bleach: Heat the Soul 6, she fights while wielding her Zanpakutō in its sealed state. In Bleach: Heat the Soul 7, she utilizes both Haguro Tonbo's Shikai and her mask at the same time as one of her attacks. The shaft portion of Haguro Tonbo is colored brown rather than the dark green color it was shown with in the anime.

Trivia

  • Lisa's name is sometimes romanized as Risa Yadōmaru.[1]
  • Both Lisa and her former captain, Shunsui Kyōraku, are ambidextrous.
  • In the anime version of Turn Back the Pendulum, she is incorrectly titled the "Vice-Captain of the 9th Division."

Quotes

  • (To Shunsui Kyōraku) "The more you try an' hide something away, the more people want to see it!"[59]
  • (To Shunsui) "You lie there and watch!! I'll show you just how much stronger I've got!"[60]
  • "The enemy of my enemy is my friend! That's all the reason we need to work together."[61]
