* ConsummateProfessional: She is Got&#332's second-in-command and a model policewoman. She came to SVU 2 for a challenge and is offended at the fact that Noa is aware of the unit's lingering reputation as if she weren't proud of her own work; she does come to understand that the unit performs excellently in spite of said infamy and that the "off" elements do work out as they should, making Kumagami more welcome into the unit.

** Shinobu is the only person that can make Gotō;h do stuff he doesn't want to do. He won't even bend down to his bosses... but Shinobu, he better not get ''her'' angry!

Gotō is the Captain of Unit 2 and was born in the Taito Ward in Tokyo. Although he may seem very laidback and even apathetic, but is quite a strategist, and knows how to get the best out of his team even if it means tricking them. He has gained the reputation of being very sharp and rumour has it he was purposely sent out to the SVU so he wouldn't cause any trouble. He still manages to do so anyway. Gotō has a crush on Shinobu, which is completely unrequited (poor Gotō...). Gotō is a heavy smoker, has athlete's foot and can often be seen wearing traditional Japanese wooden sandals around the office.

* BigGood: The top brass may not care for him, but they still defer to him during an impending crisis. So does the JSDF, Detective Matsui, and his fellow captain, Shinobu, all of whom have learned to rely on Got&#333's decision making ability, and with good reason. He's a genius level tactician, having studied military strategy at the academy. He's also keenly observant and tends to pick up on things before others do, and notices details others might overlook. [[MegaCorp Shaft Enterprises]] and his old mentor, [[spoiler: Kai]], know this better than anyone.
* TheConWithinACon: In the first movie, he makes Shinohara investigate his father's company regarding the new Labor programming that might be faulty and causing Labors to go berserk. [[spoiler:Got&#333 already knows that this is the case and has already confirmed it, but he needs Shinohara to go derelict enough from his duties to be able to rat him and earn him a suspension long enough for Shinohara to investigate the problem more deeply and run the numbers]].

Several episodes deal with her account of the day's events as she files it to the official reports. Though initially a stickler to the rules, Kumagami usually vouches for the general wellness of the unit as a whole and acts as a focal voice for their needs.

Shinobu is the Captain of Division 1 and was born in in Setagaya Ward in Tokyo. She is a professional, competent police officer. Basically the exact opposite of Captain Got&#333. She always keeps her mind on the job and never loses her cool. Often she talks back to her superiors when she disagrees with an order, and this is probably why she remains at the SVU rather being promoted to another job more worthy of her skills. She is often slightly jealous of Division 2's successes and the equipment they get, but she never really lets on.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Zigzagged, in the anime continuity. When she finally breaks the revolver out in combat, she's typically a crack-shot marksman, certainly far better than Otah. However, on the firing range, she's pretty bad at actually hitting something. It's noted in one anime episode that she doesn't really like to use her gun, hence the difference; in live combat she's working on pure instinct, auto-piloting her shots, but on a shooting range, her subconscious dislike of having to pull the trigger throws her off.

So does the JSDF, Detective Matsui, and his fellow captain, Shinobu, all of whom have learned to rely on Gotoh's decision making ability, and with good reason. He's a genius level tactician, having studied military strategy at the academy. He's also keenly observant and tends to pick up on things before others do, and notices details others might overlook. [[MegaCorp Shaft Enterprises]] and his old mentor, [[spoiler: Kai]], know this better than anyone.

[[spoiler:Gotoh already knows that this is the case and has already confirmed it, but he needs Shinohara to go derelict enough from his duties to be able to rat him and earn him a suspension long enough for Shinohara to investigate the problem more deeply and run the numbers]].

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Zigzagged. Usually, Otah is an ''awful'' shot, which combined with his willingness to pull out a gun and start blasting, and to then keep firing until he blows through his ammo reserves, means he causes the bulk of the collateral damage that Division 2 gets blamed for. However, on the firing range, he's a pretty good shot -- much better than Noa. It's explained that the difference is that, in combat, he's trying to hit a moving target (itself a challenge) whilst hyped up on adrenaline and so unable to focus; when he can calm down and pick his shot, he's much better. Also, in his favor, as wild as his shots fly, he's never actually hurt a ''person''.

As a Lieutenant, Kumagami is the highest-ranked field member of Division 2, reporting directly to the captains Gotoh and Nagumo. Several episodes deal with her account of the day's events as she files it to the official reports. Though initially a stickler to the rules, Kumagami usually vouches for the general wellness of the unit as a whole and acts as a focal voice for their needs.

Shinobu is the Captain of Division 1 and was born in in Setagaya Ward in Tokyo. She is a professional, competent police officer. Basically the exact opposite of Captain Gotoh. She always keeps her mind on the job and never loses her cool. Often she talks back to her superiors when she disagrees with an order, and this is probably why she remains at the SVU rather being promoted to another job more worthy of her skills. She is often slightly jealous of Division 2's successes and the equipment they get, but she never really lets on.
