Chapter 564: Red Bristled Kings
Mask de Masculine is confident he has ended Renji’s life. Little James is being burnt alongside Renji but apparently James and Mask’s life are linked. James will be able to be reborn as long as Mask is alive.
But as we saw from last time out. REnji called out his bankai. And it looks different. And we also find out why.
We switch to a flashback back in the Soul Palace. Renji is talking with the Monk is a small temple.
The monk immediately drops a bombshell on his face telling the poor guy he’s been decieved. He kind off comes back to it and tells Renji than the name Zabimaru has told him is only partially true.
He continues only to say that Zabimaru does not acknowledge Renji as a true warrior yet. Obviously this puts Renji off a little but the monk is not done as he declares he will reveal Zabimaru’s true name.
Now we finally get to know what the role of the monk is. He has been appointed as the Manaka Oshou or “The One Who Reveals The True Identity”.
He is the man who decided the name; Zanpaktou, Shikai, Bankai and basicly everything that resides in Soul Society. Furthermore he know the name of every Zankapktou from the moment the Asauchi are given to their Shinagmi counterpart(as he calls it).
The monk feels that Renji has earned the right to know his Zanpaktou’s true name.
Souou Zabimaru (Twin Serpent King Tail)
Mask seems umimpressed but will soon find out how strong it actually is. He flies toward Renji who throws his Bankai’s arm to catch Mask. The hand of bones crushes Mask’s arms and flings him into a nearby building with incredible force.
Mask goes beserk throwing a tantrum. Renji replies with only two words ; “Orichi Ou”(Serpent king).
She shape of his blade changes. The seperate edges underneath(like in his Shikai and the snake’s backbone hanging out the back. Renji easily pierces through Mask’s body. He prepares his final attack a power blast called Zaga Teppou (Serpent Fang Cannon).
It’s the end of Mask(it must be right?) as his body has litteraly been turned into ashes.
