The 3rd Division follows the traditional organization of a Gotei 13 Division. After the Defection of Gin Ichimaru the Division was run by the next highest authority in the 3rd Division, Lieutenant Izuru Kira. Some time after Sōsuke Aizen's defeat, Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi was reinstated as the Captain of the 3rd Division.
No special duties have been noted for the 3rd Division.
Like all the other barracks, the 3rd Division Barracks house the offices and living quarters of the Shinigami of the 3rd. During his captaincy, Gin Ichimaru is said to have planted Persimmon trees in the barrack grounds and dried the fruits himself to create hoshigaki, which he shared with other divisions. Captain Ichimaru and Captain Tōshirō Hitsugaya also fought on the 3rd Division grounds during the Ryoka Invasion.

Shinigami Women's Association Aptitude Test
According to the Shinigami Women's Association aptitude test, those who like pranks and do not want to give-up their "playful side" are best suited for this division as they will learn how to stay that way from Captain Ichimaru, who works hard and plays hard. The Association also assures recruits that while you cannot tell what Captain Ichimaru is thinking, he is well liked by his subordinates.
