Chapter 507: The Fire3
Subtitle: Genryuusai’s Bankai showcase.
I can be relatively short with this weeks chapter. It is all about the commander’s bankai. Zanka noTachi(The Blade of Embers). All of his power is now embedded into his blade. Everything that blade touches will be burnt out of existence by Yuhabach. It means he’s seen it before all those years ago.
He’s either been in combat with Yamamoto before or simply was a younger man watching a battle between a Quincy and the commander, who was a captain at the time.
A little trash talk from the commander sets the mood. I am surprised the 2nd in command hasn’t bothered to pull out the pendant that can steal a bankai. Anyway. The guys are fired up as is the whole of Soul Society.
Various captains noticed the release in different ways. Soul Society is heating up like crazy. Water is vaporizing. I am surprised captain unohana is still passive in all this. I know she a medic, but still. I wonder how she would fare in combat. But she still remains calm knowing the power of Zanka No Tachi could potential destruction.
“Scarlips”, the Quincy using Toshiro’s bankai is about the lose it. The Commander’s fire makes short work of the Ice-Zanpaktou. Giving Toshiro a moment to strike back. Juhabach tries to make sense of Genryuusai’s bankai. Trying to work out where the flames have gone. His cape got cut, but nothing happening until Genryuusai’s bankai hits the ground blowing a large chuck to hell.
Zanka no Tachi “East” Kyokujitsujin.
All the flames he possesses are concentrated on the blade’s edge. It doesn’t burn or erupt. But as Juhabach already saw. Everything the blade touches is ‘Eradicated into nothingness. Without a trace.’ The Quincy leader quickly dismisses the Bankai as ‘boring’ seeing how he only needs to avoid the blade itself.
Oh you silly Juhabach.
Did he really think it would be that easy? Genryuusai finds it equally laughable. Zanka no Tachi “West” Zanjitsugoki. The man actually needs to tone it down for the Quincy to be able to see.
As Genryuusai explains his bankai I can see why Unohana is worried. The heat reaches 15 million degrees.
Zankai no Tachi is truely the embodiment of the sun.
Will the King finally realize he cannot fight this man head on. Because he does not look happy. His eyes look like he staring at the devil, which right now, is not far from the truth.
