Investigations and Operations
Owl Suppression Operation
Together, they fought the Black Dobers and eventually their leader, the Black Dog. Their joined forces were able to overpower the gang but were interrupted by Centipede before they could eliminate Kaya.
Auction Mopping-up Operation
Tsukiyama Family Extermination Operation
Kuramoto was promoted to First Class Investigator and given leadership of Hirako Squad, now Itou Squad.
The squad participated in the Tsukiyama Family Extermination Operation, teaming up with the Quinx Squad and clearing out ghouls until the two squads encountered Noro, a powerful SS~ rated ghoul. Immediately as the fight began, Noro's kagune attacked and went straight through Umeno, devouring Nezu - killing both of them.
As the fight continued, Noro landed a powerful attack on Itou that made him unable to continue. Michibata took control, patching up Itou and explained to the Quinx Squad how dangerous the ghoul is.
With the help of the Quinx, the remaining members of Itou Sqaud pinned down Noro and hoped that it was over. Noro then sprung four kagune tentacles, killing Michibata and injuring the rest.
Rushima Landing Operation
The squad engaged various Aogiri Tree subordinates until they eventually came upon the Three Blades Leader and an injured Naki. Squad 3 later attacks the pair only to be interrupted by various White Suit subordinates and eventually Shuu Tsukiyama along with a hooded figure and the Black Dog, to who Itou recognized from during the Owl Suppression Operation.
During a heated battle, the Black Dog and Tsukiyama switched places and engaged the Itou Squad. Immediately after the swap, Tsukiyama broke Takeomi's quinque. Naki and Miza then engaged Itou and sliced above his eye, causing the blood to make him temporarily blind. Ui and Fura ultimately overpowered the Black Dog but were only intervened by the hooded figure.
At an unknown amount of time later as the Rushima Landing Operation was concluded, Itou and Takeomi were recovering after fighting such dangerous ghouls.
