|“||If you don't want Justice to be dishonored, keep it close to you at all times! If we lose credibility just by admitting fault, we didn't have any in the first place!||„|

|“||You're foolishly honest Straw Hat Luffy. I guess everyone wants to help you. What kind of person are you, Luffy? What is your hair color? What is the shape of your eyes? What do you look like? I wish I hadn't blinded myself. I want to see your face. I bet you look kind.||„|
|~ Fujitora wondering what Luffy really looks like and who he really is.|
Issho also known as Fujitora, is a Marine Admiral. He is a secondary hero antagonist in the anime and manga One Piece. He is the successor of the previous admiral, Aokiji. He was sent to Dressrosa by Fleet Admiral Sakazuki to capture Luffy and Law. His goal was abolishment of the Shichibukai system. After achieved his goal, he placed hope on the SSG (Special Science Group) to replace the now disbanded Shichibukai.
He is voiced by Ikuya Sawaki in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Charles C. Campbell in the English version of the anime.
Fujitora is a blind man with only the whites of his eyes showing, though he usually keeps both eyes closed. He has an X-shaped scar centered on the left side of his forehead that stretches over both eyes, which was actually self-inflicted due to his decision to blind himself. He has short dark hair, a mustache, and a beard. He seems to be very tall, a trait shared with other admirals.
Like other admirals, Fujitora sports the standard marine coat with his personal clothes underneath, wearing the coat on his shoulders like a cape with his arms not in the sleeves. His sleeves cuffs are purple. While previous admirals and other high-ranked marines wear the conventional suit and tie underneath their marine coats, Fujitora opts for a light-purple yukata held up with a dark purple belt, all underneath a purple cloak, matching the color in his alias. Fujitora wields a shikomizue (a Japanese swordstick) that doubles as a cane for his blindness, and also wears geta sandals. He has white bandages wrapped around both of his forearms, with handguards on both hands.
Fujitora is honorable and reasonable man who deeply cared for civilian safety and well-beings instead of arresting and punishing pirates and criminals. Due to his blindness, He is also calm and collective when he doesn't know any people's appearance. He is also grateful to people including his enemies such as Zoro who give him directions and Luffy for helping him that Doflamingo's thugs who are cheating in gambling and defeated Doflamingo under the World Goverment's mess. Much as Smoker, He doesn't wanted to become a hero for the things he did not even do. He is also cheerful as he laugh that Luffy talk about his blindness. As the citizen cheerfully "chase" Luffy only for letting him escape, Fujitora decided to let him go. He shown his love for children as he helping a little girl of getting her balloon back from the sky with his gravity power. He doesn't bothered to get punished by his superiors such as Akainu who banned him to returned to Marine bases including Headquarter unless arresting Luffy and Law. Even with this punishment, he came into Mary Geoise the capital of the World Government which is not a Marine Base or Headquarter.
He has no problem of fighting enemies and will not let them do as they pleased. However, he has a problem when Doflamingo's Birdcage is in the way, his meteor will be slice and hit indirect area.
Despite of being a Marine Admiral, He hates his superiors' absolute justice of torturing criminals and letting Doflamingo the former Shichibukai harming and killing innocent civilians. Like Smoker, He despise and distrusted the Shichibukai as he swore to destroy their system even if it means to becoming his enemies. Much as Kuzan, He argue at his superior about reveal the true incident in Dressrosa. He refused to forgive him due to his pride even if Sengoku tried to help him.
