Background Story

In Episode 55, it was mentioned that Doromizu Jirochou 泥水 次郎長, one of the other 4 Devas of Kabuki District, used to admire Otose. According to Kurogoma Katsuo in Episode 211, Otose and Jirochou grew up together and were very close. She was apparently the only one to keep watch over him and constantly reprimand him for his misdemeanors in his childhood, as a result of which Jirochou did not go astray. Otose eventually got married to Terada Tatsugorou, an early generation Jouishishi member and a Edo-period police officer, who became Jirochou's close friend due to their shared ideals of protecting the streets though they are on opposite sides of the law. Said to be a beauty in her youth, both Jirochou and Tatsugorou fell in love with Otose. Jirochou knew that his choice of life could never bring Otose happiness and chose to withdraw from the love triangle in spite of his feelings for her. Tatsugorou was killed in the battle field shielding a bullet from Jirochou. On the behest of the dying Tatsugorou to take care of Kabuki District and Otose, Jirochou decided to station himself in the Kabuki District near Otose, leaving behind his wife and new-born child.


Miyajima Fumitoshi 宮島 史年 was the first seiyuu to voice Doromizu in the earlier seasons of the anime, but seiyuu was changed to the current one for the new season 5.
