Chapter 557: His life has already been set aside.
Komamura has called forth his bankai. As was obvious from last time out it is on quite a different form this time.
Bambietta is surprised by this new form, she expected to see a similar body underneath the Bankai’s armor. She launches one of her bombs at its head but the he blocks it with his hand. The hand is damaged but immediately regenerates.
Sufficed to say, Bambietta is confused. Komamura is kind enough to explain. Tengen Myouou is an armored Bankai that has life breathed into it. Dangai Joue is a form that casts that armor aside laying bare just reiatsu, just power.
He is confident her powers cannot defeat him. Bambietta still doesn’t understand and questions his explanation. Komamura continues by saying the following;
‘Something becoming a bomb and blowing apart if terrifying. Only because there is life there. If there is not life, then there’s no terror in blowing apart. Tengen Myouou’s life is in the armor. Dangai Joue is the form of Tengen Myoue after it has cast its life away.
The shortsighted calls him on his bullshit, she doesn’t believe a bankai has life to begin with it. She does know that the Bankai is linked to its owner. She blast him in the heart laughing but she is quickly silenced to see he doesn’t have a heart.
He reveals the details of the secret technique to her. It seems he might die when the transformation ends but until that happens, he is immortal.
Bambietta seems to hold no concept toward sacrificing herself for the greater good. Throwing his life away in battle would make winning meaningless.
Komamura responds that he isn’t throwing his life away. he just ‘put it on the line. Could there be any reason for me not to stake my life on the battle that Genryuusai-dono gave his life.
The way Komamura sees it.The moment he stepped on this battlefield. He made the decision to set my life aside.
With that. Tengen Myouou get a direct hit on Bambietta.
Could this be the end of the Quincy psychopath?
