After the death of Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, he returns to Soul Society with the other members of the Royal Guard, where they are met by most of the surviving Gotei 13 captains and Ichigo Kurosaki.[5] Bearing a flag with the Royal Guard's emblem, he greets the assembled Shinigami before going to talk to Unohana.

Onsō knocks him to the ground for giving out to Suì-Fēng.

When Captain Suì-Fēng gives out to them about how they did not help in the battle with the Vandenreich, he grabs her and tells her that their job is to protect the Spirit King, not Seireitei and that the Gotei 13 did not live up to its name. Onsō knocks him to the ground and tells him to talk later. When Unohana objects to Senjumaru Shutara bringing the critically injured Byakuya Kuchiki, as well as Renji Abarai and Rukia Kuchiki to the Royal Palace, he tells her that they cannot fully recover with her abilities and that he can. He then tells her that it is not the time for her to focus on healing.[7]
