While Tōba is in his gambling house, a man named Jin Kariya enters. After Kariya causes some trouble he walks up to Tōba and asks for his help in destroying Seireitei. Tōba agrees to it. After giving Kariya a room to stay in, he tells him that he'll gather some people for him.[1] After gathering up a bunch of people, Tōba watches as Gō Koga and Maki Ichinose convince them to join their cause.[2] Afterwards, Tōba confronts Ichinose and remarks about the large number of people they are rallying.[3] Tōba later appears in front of one of the gates that lead to Seireitei while his subordinates break through.[4] The gate is then opened up, but soon afterwards Kariya betrays them and kills Tōba and the people of Kusajishi.[5]
