Turn back the Pendulum 3
At the 2nd division, it was reported to Yoruichi that Urahara had headed to "the Maggots Nest". Soi fon was going to oppose it but Yoruichi told her not to worry and that Urahara must know what he is doing if he is taking his vice captain to that place.
Urahara eventually manages to drag Hiyori along with him. While walking there he tells her the history of the secret mobile corps. It was established separately from the Gotei 13 and the Shihouin family has a lot to do with it. Therefore the leader of the Shihouin family is given the rank of captain in one of the Gotei 13 divisions, that division will have a very close relationship with the secret mobile corps.
The current leader of the family is Yoruichi who is the captain of the 2nd division. The members of the division also have to take up a position in one of the 5 sub-divisions of the secret mobile corps. Urahara was included in this, the sub-division he once took responsibility for is the 3rd sub-division of the secret mobile corps which is called "Kanritai" which means “the Penitentiary Department.”
One of this department's duties is to confine shinigami who have a high possibility of bringing danger to others, which makes them also considered an obstacle for the gotei 13.
Urahara further explains that it's to imprison "the cause of danger". He points towards the northern part of the 2nd division which has the large prison where these prisoners are kept. It is known as the underground for special imprisonment or, the Maggots nest.
It is a rule that they have to leave their Zanpakutou with the guards at the gate. The area inside the prison is like a large room. There are tables and chairs for the prisoners to relax on as the prisoners are allowed to live freely inside this area. Urahara warns Hiyori to be careful while walking through there because even a prisoner might look calm, there have been times when a prisoner went crazy.
Hiyori asks what crimes were committed by them but Urahara replies that they have done nothing. They are simply judged as "dangerous persons" by the law of Seireitei. So they are imprisoned to avoid a situation where they can bring harm to others. He then asks her if she can recall whether anyone has resigned from the Gotei 13, Hiroyi answers that there are 2-3 persons.
"The Gotei 13 has no 'resignation' system but only suspension and elimination of the name if they are absent for too long. There is no resigning as it means being put in the 'special confines' for the Gotei 13" says Urahara.
In conclusion there is no such thing as resignment in the Gotei 13, which is a noble organization, once a person is accepted into a division. These dangerous people who can not go along with the organization are imprisoned and it is made to seem like they have resigned to everyone else.
Urahara has always had doubts that these prisoners should be locked up as he thinks their powers could be used for something great. While they are talking a giant prisoner goes crazy and charges at Hiyori. Urahara takes him out with his bare hands. He tells Hiyori, who is shocked, that the most important requirement when being appointed head of this department is that the candidate must be able to defeat every prisoner in there with his/her bare hands.
Then Urahara takes Hiyori to the end of the pathway. There is a medium sized jail that is heavily locked. "Look at that, Hiyori-san", he says. "Over there is a dangerous person whom we have to keep separate from the others.”
The person who wears a white kimono sits there in the darkness."Urahara Kitsuke?" they ask.
"What brings you here?"
"I have some business with you", replies Urahara while walking towards the cage. He looks at the prisoner while smiling. "Kurotsuchi Mayuri-san."
There is no response from Mayuri but the former jailer continues, "please come with me."

awww sweet as hell. Urahara will train Mayuri :P (not really)
Young Mayuri looks even more psycho than in his captain days. On the other hand Zorro style does not suit him...
Poles say: We are sorry that our president is an idiot. We didn't vote on him.
I really wonder why he wears all that stuff. He looks kinda cool without it. At least Kenpachi and Saijin had a reason for dressing up.
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

maybe because he thinks his cool like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nah, it's to hide all his fun little "gadgets" and trick weapons. Not to mention he might realize how much a weird look can affect a fight.
Hmmm. It seems that after Urahara has known Mayuri long before both of them became captains of 12th division.
Either Mayuri taught Urahara while at the Maggot's Nest, or Urahara became Mayuri's mentor.
I think the latter seems more plausible and that Urahara will help to be a little more normal.
