Chapter 504: Beyond the peals of Thunder
Koukougonryourikyuu (Brilliant Yellow Village of the Stern Soul)
A Bankai that has not been used in over 200 years. The bankai of his subordinate. Stolen by the Quincy in front of hit. The old man closes his eyes drifting into past memories feeling the reaitsu of this bankai, like Hyourinmaru able to command the weather. Striking down with powerful lightning bolts. The Quincy laughs as he strikes the Captain Commander who is not moving a muscle thinking back to past days.
I was surprised to see he was already sporting a manly moustache at a younger age. apparently he got himself a nickname of sorts. ‘Eijisai’ born from the shape of the scar on his forehead. Also, funny to see his subordinate aswell. Back then Lt. Sasakibe already had his plan set out. His goal wanting to be the right-arm of Cm. Yamamoto.
After some shitty logic, Sasakibe was gone for a while telling Yamamoto he has achieved Bankai as Yamamoto commanded about a month ago. The teacher immediately challenges his subordinate. The bankai was nearly strong enough to beat yamamoto but placed another scar on his forhead. Not even a lecture put Sasakibe down as he set a new goal. To polish his bankai to serve Eijusai-dono as he was still called.
Finally the commander took on a new name as we now it right now “Genryuusai”.
Hisagi screams out as the Quincy keep striking away happily at the Commander up to the point where he believes the Commander has lots consciousness moving his damaged body in order to assist Yamamoto.
finally the commander yells out, stopping Lt. Hisagi. The Quincy keep on laughing at the commander but he has no idea who he is really dealing with. The commander speaks out to the deceased Chourjirou. Understanding his bitterness. The polished Bankai so much weaker that he the commander and lt. Sasakibe expected it had become.
The chapter end with the commander burning the skin of the Quincy’s body. Putting this Sternritter in his rightful place.
