Fujitora would be based on the Actor Shintaro Katsu, his most famous role is Zatoichi, the Blind Samurai.
Spoiler!
Ah cool, its pretty much confirmed to be him then. Excellent, Blind characters in Manga are always extremely strong. Plus his name has Tiger in it, so I wonder how good his sword must be, because if its based of the sword from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, it should at least be supreme grade. Though I'm just guessing here with the sword, as Katsu wasn't in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
