Nezu bids farewell to his crew before going to Ueda, with Veronica by his side

etting drunk and fall alseep on the deck soon after. After having a short conversation with Yukimura , he warms up a little to him and even puts his jacket over Yukimura to protect him from the cold. After that, Nezu and Veronica go back to Ueda to join the Braves, which has now acquired a tenth person, making it complete. Jinpachi, on the other hand, is just interested in Juzou's promised 'gorgeous buxom blonde' within the Braves, Anastasia. Unfortunately, in the same night he arrived at Ueda, Ana was revealed as a traitor. Despite that, Jinpachi still attended on Yukimura's call and learns about Isanami's true nature.

The next day, Jinpachi was seen fishing with Veronica. Unfortunately, the pond he's fishing was frozen by Ana, who had her orders to kill every Braves. Rather than angry at the betrayal, Jinpachi became enthusiastic in fighting her, wanting to know her better. During the fight, however, despite Ana claiming that she's as cold as ice, Jinpachi could guess that Ana was actually a very confused woman and her ice queen facade was melting. This was rebuked thoroughly and Jinpachi ended up frozen. However, Ana has yet to know most of Jinpachi's traits, thus missed a vital part, enabling Jinpachi to electrocute her into unconsciousness and breaking away from the ice. Due to his overall interest in her, Jinpachi spared her rather than killing her like the rest of the Braves did with their enemies.

After Ana woke up and ended up in distraught over fighting over a fake heirloom and that she's now a traitor, Jinpachi suggests that she can start over and be a free spirit like him, being able to do whatever she pleases. The offer was accepted, and Jinpachi and Anastasia soon became travelling partners, although they both only watched Ueda Castle from afar rather than rejoining the Braves.


He possesses the power to manipulate lightning at will and has incredible strength. Seen when he is able to blocks Miyoshi's blow with one hand, then taking him down with one bolt of lightning soon after.
