Terada Tatsugorou was a protector of Kabuki-chou and the former husband of Terada Ayano, aka Otose.

BackgroundEdit

Tatsugorou was described as a "man of the law" and a "cop", however his affiliation with the Shinsengumi remains unknown.[1] He apparently lived in Kabuki-chou and was considered a hero during his time, but most of his past and how he lived otherwise is clouded in mystery.

He and Doromizu Jirochou quarreled often because of their different positions in the town, him being a hero and Jirochou a vigilante, but they still fought for the same reason: to protect Kabuki-chou.

Later they became friends but both of them fell in love with Otose. Jirochou wanted Otose to be happy so he backed away.

Tatsugorou was also the love interest of Oiwa. However, Tatsugorou married Ayano, with Jirochou attending the wedding.[2]

He plays a key plot in the Kabuki District arc, Otose visited Tatsugorou grave and Jirochou tells Otose to leave out of town because he's starting to start a war. She refused to leave and offers her life but in return leave Yorozuya, Catherine and Tama alive. Jirochou attacks Otose and Gintoki found her lying on the floor. Gintoki was fuelled with rage and fights against Jirochou, Jirochou won the fight but spared Gintoki life alive just as he promised to Otose.

Gintoki took his jutte and Katana and swore to Tatsugorou that he'll protect everything that was important to him, mainly Kabuki District, Otose and Jirochou.

Otose talks to Jirochou and thanks him for protecting the town over 20 years and that he done a good job for new generation to take over and that they inherited Tatsugorou and Jirochou spirit.

His kiseru and jutte were returned at his grave.
