Unohana also revealed that the Taichou of the 12th Division, Hikifune, had been promoted. Aizen was shocked to hear that and asked if she had been promoted to Central 46. Shunshui replied no and revealed that she had been promoted to Royal Guard, Zero Division.Soi Fon was the personal bodyguard of Yoruichi. She's very respectful of Yoruichi and seemed a little jealous of Yoruichi's close friendship with Urahara. To prove to Yoruichi that Urahara was incapable, she followed Urahara around the entire day and noted down everything he did. After consolidating all her notes, she went to look for Yoruichi. She was shocked to see Urahara with Yoruichi. Yoruichi informed her that she had recommended Urahara to the position of 12th Division Taichou. Soi Fon was again shocked and presented her notes to Yoruichi. After reading the notes, Yoruichi laughed and started teasing Soi Fon about her 'love' towards Urahara.Urahara passed the Taichou Qualification Exam and he's officially the Taichou of the 12th Division. However, for his first Taichou meeting, he's the last to arrive.PicturesAizen - Vice Taichou of 5th DivisionShinji - Taichou of 5th DivisionHaha..
