Tatsui was born in the 5th District in Northern Rukongai. Her parents were very stuck up, always telling her what do. Her parents wanted her to become a Shinigami and atleast reach the rank of Lieutenant. Tatsui was sick of it, she was annnoyed on how her parents wanted her to be in the 1st Division, as they thought that was the right one for her.

Tatsui had apllied for the Shin'ō Acadamey, she was execellent at her power and was strong. She was noticed by everyone there. As she went home, she saw her parents gaining Hollow powers and had masks, Tatsui ran away from her parents as she was scared of what she saw, she then swore to never come back to that district again.


World of the Living arc

Tatsui was in the Lieutenants meeting, she raised her hand up for Kanjiro and Mashiro to become Lieutenants. Her reasons are unexplained for this.

Tatsui, was choosen by each of the Captain's to investigate the coloured Hollows in the World of the Living, along with Kanjiro and Takiji.

In the World of the Living, she watched as Kanjiro killed a Hollow, she then looked at her Zanpakutō and made her Captain Momo Hinamori appear on the screen. As she did, she told her to go see Akito Urahara. Since she knew the way, Kanjiro and Takiji followed her to the place. When she first saw Akito she thought he was cute and asked where he gets his hair like that.

Tatsui went with Kanjiro to fight other Hollows, but not much was known about that. Tatsui then headed back to Soul Society as the work was done. Also, Tatsui ran off to her barracks as she saw Mashiro waiting for Takiji and Kanjiro.

Rise of the Arrancar Arc

Waiting for Rukia, before the fight started, Tatsui didn't say a word. When Mashiro and Kanjiro both went Bankai, she was suprised and congratulated them(which was unseen).

As the other Lieutenants came out of the Garganta, Tatsui was waiting for them along with, Gasaku, Takiji and Ken. Kanjiro asked her how they got their first and she replied saying that Akito made a Garganta ages ago. When Pablo Quesada's Fraccion encouter them, Tatsui fights Adrian. Adrian keeps saying that he's going to win, but Tatsui slashes him and asks him how he's going to find out. When Adrian uses Sonido her appears on Tatsui's back, but annoyed she'd use Sebun Mure and use Fifusu, Suu-omo, Yobo to finish him. She then says that arrogance is not reccomended. They all read it say Arrogance on Tatsui's back and notice that it's bad and Hantaro says it's harsh. She then dances.

When they were runnin, they were shocked to see another Arrancar. Naizen shouts out it's an Espada and everyone knows what's going to happen. Kanjiro runs off  and Ken tells him that he doesn't know what number the Espada is, but Tatsui stops him and tells him that Kanjiro wants to discover and they should let him accomplish it.

After Nanao defeats Lucia Ceron, Ken gets happy since Omaeda insn't bothering him and then Tatsui yawns, since she's bored. Then, Shina asked her why and she says because she wants to go back, but they have to wait until their learn the Arrancar's reason.

Tatsui says that Renji is getting beaten by the bird, but actually he's getting beat by Rojas. Annoyed, Kanjiro hits her and tells her than even he is not that stupid.

After the war, she is Renji's Office doing the Q&A and she says that Shina argues to much, she also tells him her life story.

Generations Arc

In her barracks, Tatsui is talking to her squad members about something unknown until Momo approaches her, telling about the Battle of the Generations that Matsuo Asai has planned.

Throughout the entire bout, Tatsui didn't get to fight, but she was suprised at what happening with all of it. She never knew everyone was strong as she thought.

As the Dezimiert Falken attacked, she had noticed her parents where there. She was really shocked and tramautised at this. After this had happened, they all headed back to their squads and Tatsui was seen running up and down everywhere. Momo came towards her and realised that those two where her parents. She is then chosen to go find those two.

Dezimiert Falken Arc

Tatsui is seen walking into the SRDI along with Shina Kawabata and Gasaku Kuchiki. When the portal is done, they head in.

After, they have all been split apart and Tatsui appears with Takiji. She is then displeased with this and annoyed, but Takiji states that it's fate and orders her to move on. Then, as they walk on the meet themselves with multi pathway. Takiji mentions that there was 5 before, but he could sense 6 strong ones and many more. Tatsui then orders Takiji to move, so they cxan save the two.

When they run into a hollow, Takiji doesn't want to fight it it, to which Tatsui emphasises that it is a normal hollow. Then, Tatsui gets her Zanpakuto out and is just about to charge towards the hollow to kill it. However, it is killed by her parents, as pointed out by Takiji. Tatsui is then angry and looks to them as they greet her. Tatsui then pledges to fight them, but Takiji thinks what she's doing is crazy. Tatsui mentions the fact that their her parents, so Takiji moves back. However, Eijiro states they'll still attack him, to which he's about to do. Suprisingly, Tatsui blocks his attack on Takij and tells her father to leave him alone.

After, the tension began to drew as they all looked at each other, waiting for one of them to attack. As a suprise, Eijiro and Mizuki both release their Zanpakuto's and both attack Tatsui. Eijiro thinks that she knows her attacks and this gets her angry. Tatsui uses Honou no Bausuto and fires it at Eijiro and hits Mizuki. Tatsui gets angry and repeats what Eijiro said. She then mentions that they've never seen her Zanpakuto. When they both stand up, they use their hollowfication and attack Tatsui. Reacting to this, Takiji runs to help Tatsui by striking Eijiro aon the shoulder. However, Tatsui tells him it's between her family. Later, Mizuki intervenes and tells them that it does. This puzzles Tatsui and is cleared up by Eijiro telling that Takiji is their son.

As they both heard the news, Tatsui is angry by the fact that it's Takiji. As their parents put on their Hollow masks, Mizuki attempts to kick Takiji, but is stopped when Tatsui kicks her in the head and slashes her. After that fierce attack, Mizuki realises they aren't hesistant to kill them. The parents get serious and give leathal attacks, by sending a Cero to taking and electricouting Tatsui. After these attacks, Tatsui rises up, even though suffering all lot of bleeding, she then uses her Zanpakuto to send all lot flames towards Mizuki as Takiji uses Soren Sokatsui on Eijiro. Finally, the two have been beat up and she tells them not to say a word before killing them of with a Sebun Mure.

While Tatsui and Takiji are walking, Takiji calls her. Tatsui replies to him an adresses him as little brother. Then, Takiji tells her the news shouldn't change her and they should forget about it and she agrees.

Noticing that Marie is in the hole, Tatsui uses the rest she got to attack Marie using a technique that scorches her clothing, but was still alive, to which Tatsui calls her tough. When they're about to double team Marie, Takiji states that he doesn't want to fight, but Tatsui wonders why now.

While fighting Marie, Tatsui kept striking Marie, but she blocked it and let Takiji attack from the hip. After, Marie is sent by Kanjiro's Ikkotsu. When the notice Lucia saying that she survived her fight with Nanao, Tatsui asked for why she was here. Lucia then told them that they couldn't win.

After Kanjiro used his Sokkotsu on Marie, she noticed that Gasaku Kuchiki, Renji Abarai and Shina Kawabata arrivied.

When Marie is killed by Yachiru, they all head towards the portal with Shina, Kanjiro and Gasaku.
