Byakuya Kuchiki Dead?! – Zaraki Kenpachi Appears!! – Bleach 502

Bleach 502 really shows what can happen when a captain goes down. From the Senbonzakura attack on Byakuya, he is nearly dead! Renji gets pissed out and starts fighting As Nodt. Rukia notices that Byakuya is nearly dead, she runs to her when she’s met by a Stern Ritter who attacks her. Zaraki appears with a butt load of dead Stern Ritter, he meets the Vandenreich Leader, he of course wants to fight him!

We start Bleach 502 as it’s continued from last weeks chapter. Byakuya is seen to fall to the floor as blood! He is nearly dead, As Nodt tells him that he cannot do anything else because he cannot win against his own Bankai with his Shikai. Renji quickly starts to attack As Nodt in his Shikai which again does no effect on him.

He tells As Nodt that a bastard like him is not worthy of using Senbonzakura! He attacks but it seems that it hasn’t done any effect on As Nodt. Rukia notices that Byakuya’s reiatsu has disappeared. She runs towards him but one of the Stern Ritter’s tells her that she should not turn her back at the enemy during a fight because then she must be underestimating him. She is attacked by her opponent.

Renji attacked with his Shikai but failed as As Nodt quickly blocked it with his own hand! As Nodt uses the power of Senbonzakura to insert all the petals in Zabimaru, it covers the whole Shikai sword when it reaches Renji. We see Byakuya stand up with his last effort, but As Nodt quickly uses Senbonzakura to direct all his attack at Byakuya! It all covers Byakuya and literally cuts at every point it can hit him. He falls to the ground.

Renji desperately calls out for As Nodt to stop this but they just keep going. Renji shouts to his fullest for As Nodt to STOP!! then goes to shout Bankai, when he’s struck by one of the Stern Ritter members. Renji is hit hard! As Nodt calls him an idiot because they could have caught another Bankai, he tells him that he thought that only captains could use the Bankai. As Nodt tells him to go home and reread the daten his majesty gave them.

Byakuya stands there, calls for Renji and Rukia. His sword cracks into a million pieces then tells them to forgive him for not protecting them. Somewhere else, the Vandenreich Leader and an Unnamed Stern Ritter notices that Byakuya Kuchiki has died. The Stern Ritter member tells the Leader that it’s dragging on as thought, the Leader tells him that their Stern Ritter’s are too permissive, it’s only their fault.

The Unnamed Member notices a great force behind them. They see Zaraki Kenpachi! With two or three or even four members of the Stern Ritter on top of him! All stabbed by his sword! He asks if they are the boss of these punks, referring to the Stern Ritter. The Leader looks at him, Bleach 502 ends here!

My reactions to this surpasses any word in any dictionary! I just can’t believe that Byakuya is dead! or is he!? Tell me what you think! It’s certainly awesome seeing Zaraki kick some Stern Ritter ass and go straight to the Leader! Zaraki is certainly going to get his ass beat by the leader! Can’t wait to see what happens in next week’s Bleach 503 chapter!

    Byakuya is finally gone it seems. Most brutal death in Bleach so far i think. Left me speechles and shocked. I knew he wouldnt survive but this was too much, especially the blood (is this seinen?).
    I bet after this invasion Ichigo and Renji will avenge him for sure.

    Also epic entrence from Zaraki. His Vandenreich kebab was priceless haha. Still it will be hard as hes up against Buckbeard. I cant see him defeating the boss as its too early and plot armor will take effect if even needed.

    Where the hell is Yama-ji? Shouldt he be around there as well? He must fight the boss!

    PS Still not knowing who the dude in HM is makes me desperate. Damn you Kubo!

      Agree, I was surprised at my self that I was only shocked for like a minute, then realized that he’s going to obviously come back.
      And Seinen meaning manga towards a older audience? Well, I’d think so yeah, but most of the fan of Bleach are teens, and they’re going to love this kind of violence so not going to be a big change…

      I realllly wanted to see Renji’s Bankai, I think it’s correct that he’s got a new Bankai, so Kubo wants to hold it in for a while longer so he can really show his Bankai, possibly when Renji wants to get revenge on Byakuya by targeting As Nodt.

      Hahahah Stern Ritter Kebab xDD How many people are in there? lol Yeah too early for him to be affected by Zaraki…

      He’s probably with Retsu working out a plan or something…

      Hmm I was watching one of the older Bleach episodes a while ago and wondered if it could either be Jinta or Ururu…. They seem to be powerful enough to fight, plus they’ve could have gotten stronger throughout that time with Urahara watching them? Plus Urahara’s shock could be explained as they came there without their permission..? maybe, maybe not?

      ps. you should take part in the competition I’ve put on daily anime art 😀

        I doubt that the mystery person is either Jinta nor Ururu, because there has been no signs that they would have soul reaper powers, Although, they are very strong, especially Ururu who showed up Renji against that one fight with that one arrancar. If they had any part with this, then it is probably that they came with Karin. They have all ready teamed with before with Don Kanonji.

            Well they are really powerful, both of them have grown up and could somehow have gained their own strong spiritual energy just like Ichigo did when he gained his Shinigami powers after Byakuya took them at episode 20 or something of Bleach.

        If he comes back it would be a dissapointment as Kubo finally lifted the plot armor over his characters. Byakuya was one of my favourite characters tho. RIP 😦
        Also consider the possibility for Kuchiki Ginrei to show up. Would be damn awesome to see him fight.

        Seinen is manga for adults. There are several elements that make it and blood/gore is one of it.

        I dont believe his new Bankai could be that much different. Luckly he got saved by that big Sternritter who seems to me like a complete fool like Yami. XD

        Three people slaughtered by the Zaraki “Juggernout” Kenpachi. However since it was off screen it wasnt the top brench of Sternritters so we shouldnt jump to conclusions.

        “Zaraki: Bankai
        Chuck Norris: You called”

        No way it was those two kids. Far too weak and Urahara wouldnt put the “oh no im doomed” face.

        Competition? Sounds good, will browse around.

          What I feel right now is that he hasn’t got a proper killing, we saw his sword break into a million pieces but never saw him actually fall down and close his eyes or anything, he was still somewhat alive…

          Yeah Zaraki picked the weaker Stern Ritter’s, but now he’s gone right to the top of the ranks, to the leader. His going to have a hard time fighting, or even touching the leader because of that other long haired dude there… Plus I was wondering, the eye patch, do you think its stopping Zaraki’s power even more than before?, because most of his match’s are one slice kill ones…

        I wasn’t shocked, I expected some kind of this, you remember maybe. Wonder if Byakuya comes back or not, because how damn can he? Have an idea of hollowification of him, that’d be interesting. Also, he can be somehow healed by someone like Unohana.

        Honestly, I want him dead 😀 that would really be a shock to the fans, because everybody expects traditional plot from this arc, maybe this is the result of lots of all-the-same fillers in the anime. But it would be pleasant for these fans to see something new from Kubo, this kind of trolling.

        Absolutely agree about Renji, though I thought he would show his new Bankai in this chapter. No, Kubo says between the lines, Renji here is only a demonstration of Sternritter power to consume more than one Bankai in this chapter.

        Zaraki is awesome, that’s it, lol :DDDD

        You said smth like Unohana’s Yama’s daughter, that’s pretty cool, I never thought of her past. She may be Yama’s someone, cause nobody never irritates her with anything. Why? Because she’s a woman and a weak fighter? I bet you))

        About Urahara’s little friends, what are the reasons for them to do any of the actions we listed? Come to HM, kill KO, attack Urahara and drop call? In such a way of guessing, I suggest it’s Kanodji, loool

          I too wasn’t very shocked, I was excited to see Zaraki and the Leader, but with Byakuya’s possibly death, I realized that Kubo wouldn’t let go of him because of his awesomeness.

          Yeah I’d want to see a few kills here, but also want to see the captain or vice captains, or any other important character to have a shocking death, not like a stabbing, cuts death but something more, possibly like death by a fantastic attack like even more powerful cero or something…. Something stupendously powerful!!

          Yeah agree, she could be related to Yamamoto somehow, could be why she’s always with him… Haha nah I don’t think she a weak fighter, I think she can hide her spiritual pressure realllllly well, she seems weak but she’s probably like really strong, on Yama’s level, maybe?

          Hmm it’s probably not attacking Urahara but more like Urahara wanted to talk to them privately so dropped the call. Hahah xD Don hah lol maybe 😛

And during the point when Orihime and Chad are being killed, they have a certain desire to somehow get help from something or someone… So the Hogyoku hears this calls and somehow materializes another being or even materializes Urahara’s Zanpakuto?

      Wow, brutal kill on Byakuya? Sh** just got serious. My jaw dropped when i saw that bloodied wall, Last time i was this shocked was when Aizen was found dead with the sword stabbed in his chest in
      I really love Byakuya’s character, but i truly think he’s gone for good and his death is a very interesting plot device for the series because:

      1-) Removes the predictability built over the years that ‘no precious character can be killed’.
      2-) His death opens way for more development of Rukia X Renji relationship, since they went separate ways when Rukia was adopted by a noble family.

            Personally the only quincy I was attached to was Ivan, he was the first and he had a badass look plus he had something about his that was like.. this guys gonna be super strong… but turned out to be really weak lool But still I’d say its still at the early stages, when each Quincy have their own time to develop we’ll get more attached to them 😛

      I still believe he’s not dead yet, although he was critically injured by his own Bankai Senbonzakura, we can see that he hasn’t fallen down yet so he may have a chance to survive. Completely agree, Byakuya is also what kept me watching from the first episode he appeared with Renji to the first time we saw Ichigo’s Bankai and even the Arrancar stuff…. he’s awesome!

    Guys if I am not mistaken the Quincy resemble the Nazi in a way… So if you remember ww2 history the nazis started the war with blitzkrieg and they were winning battles easily in the begining… so if we relate one thing to another we might as well say that the quincies will overwhelm the battelfield for a while longer.. but byakuya cant die like this he simply cant…

      Just cause the Quincys are German does not mean there like the Nazis. The Nazis killed people they did not like. The Vandenreich kill the Hollows but inslave the Arrancars and submitted them to fight in there army. Plus thats a double standard to compre them to the Nazis. There uniforms are more related to the German military ones. Kirge however does have his head saved similer to Hitler’s but thats it. In someways they are cause the Shinigami killed nearly all the Quincys like everyone blamed Germany for WW1 even when they were just trying to defend Austria. And man them pay everything and the Quincys took 200 years to evolve and become full spiritual beings. Like when Nazi’s took over Germany and all those others. So yeah 🙂

      The first time they introduced Ivan and he was starting to speak German words it did get me thinking about how it relates to the Nazi, but i’d have to say that this would have to be a coincident, because the Arrancars could be related to the Portuguese/Brazil because the words they use such as Espada = means blade, Tres Beastias = Three beasts… So I think Kubo has tried to use a variety of people…

    You guys gotta remember that this is the last of the series they are probably going to kill off abunch of main plot charecters and then have the main charecter come in somehow own everyone and then will end the series of like ichigo dieing or him killing off the final quincy dude.
    now with byakuya kuchiki he is obviously dead so those hardcore fans suck it up. there probably going to kill kenpachi off and the person at the end attacking urahara is either someone unexpected like the people from the last arc.

      Thats very true lol… Byakuya is an awesome character, but I think you may have noticed that this chapter in its self is much different then the other arc.

There is obviously going to be some huge deaths and some unbelievable loss, SS will be in darkness at this point and will have no hope but just to give up, so many people are going to die :/… <– That's what I think, so its obviously pushing SS to the brinks of death, so a few captains/vice-captains will have to die in this final arc. Not all of them can live, thats probably the way it works now..

I think it would be more acceptable for me at least if they didn’t rush everything. I also believe that the whole arc made all the captains and vice captains look tooooo weak. Byakuya deserved a more noble death if he truly died. T_T. I think this arc also made the captains seem like they were too reliant on their Bankai and as if they had nothing else to offer to the fight. Even when they fought the Aizen and Espada, had they died then at least they put up a good fight.

    Again, I don’t think Byakuya is dead.

    For one, he was still standing while Renji and Rukia were down— and although he said ‘forgive me’ he did not fall and we do not see him take his final breath or even close his eyes. All we see after him thinking those words is him against the bloodied, broken wall; and then it goes back to the Quincies.

    The one Quincy, the unnamed Stern Ritter with long hair said ‘It seems Byakuya Kuchiki has died’. Seems, being the key word there. If he ‘died’ he probably would have fallen, or Kubo would have given us a better ending to Byakuya’s life than that. Also, because they think he is dead— that means his Spiritual pressure had to of vanished, correct?

    Izuru’s vanished, we still don’t know if he’s dead.

    Plus, when a soul reaper dies, they DISAPPEAR. They fade, remember? Because they no longer have a human body? After Byakuya thinks ‘forgive me’ to Renji and Rukia— he is still seen against that bloodied wall, right? He’s still there, still standing— therefore still breathing.

    We still have a chance, Byakuya fans. Someone can step in and save his life still.

    “Plus, when a soul reaper dies, they DISAPPEAR. They fade, remember? Because they no longer have a human body?”

      You’re point is true, his did vanish but only his half was cut off, so death by blood loss?

      When you say about the bloody wall thing, I think that Kubo skipped a part, I think when he was covered with all the Senbonzakura, Byakuya was then pushed and smashed against that wall by the other Masked Stern Ritter, thus wall on blood…

He should have also used better jugdement to not start the fight using Bankai. That’s something again Hitsugaya would do. What about the Flash Blossom?

                But I wonder, why do you think they are the first letters of their abilities. You remember, that first, Kirge said something about a note from the Leader with letter T for “trap”. That makes me doubt a little. But okay, it might be just a code. Second, esapada had numbers of power, so it’s quite possible that Sternritter also have power gradation. We’ll see clear it if the Leader has A. If he’s quincy and quincy-hollow. I think he might be shinegami. Yama didn’t kill him, but nobody stated that this has connection to the Quincy Story.

                Who told you about the Royal Guard bankais? Nobody said they exist, but you’re already trying to describe their powers, Kido Corps is definitely ruled by that fat vizard, he has a funny name. Hachimen, yes.

If he was A, he would have to be replaceable, if someone wants to kill and become A, this rank would be easily replaceable…

                  Well I think because he’s the leader of the Quincy, he’s a master at using the powers of a Quincy, so most likely that he will be a quincy himself, even if he doesn’t dress like one……

                  Was he ever seen or heard doing any of that quincy staff? That’s the question.

                  Hechigen? Okay, I’m a little mistaken with spelling. OMG, has he? What episode is this?

                  That’s not an example, being Captain of the 2nd squad means being the leader of ninja force (in my language we call it punishing squad).

He’s as strong as he is hot.:-D But Wonderweiss s more powerful plus he also defeated Mashiro whie wearing her mask. Kensei was probably beating his ass at first, but Wonderweiss released his Zanpakuto to his Recrection. Beating Kensei until he uses his mask, but Wonderweiss was still winning and over powered him.

            Quincys Quincy: Vollstandig. But its not absolute and can be cut. But they can also recover there injuries, even as severe as a broken neck. Bult Arterie is Quincys ultimate offense against any as strong as a Bankai. Increasing there Heiling Pfeil, Codename letter abilities, Reishi absordtion, and even there physical strength. And then the Quincy: Vollstandig technique Sklaverei. A basic technique that gathers Reishi the most powerful way, by inslaving it. Tearing away the components that make up spiritual beings, objects, and places like Soul Society and Hueco Mundo. When a spiritual being is absorbed the user can take the apierance and there abilities.

    Guys, guys, guys. Come to terms with these characters’ deaths! Grimjow is DEAD. Nnoitra murdered him after he was critically injured by Ichigo. And Byakuya is dead. Just like Kiba, Ulquiorra and every other character who was killed off, there was hype they might come back. But, as we can tell from the Head Captain’s silver-haired lieutenant who died, and Kiba, characters are dying off. I hope with all my heart Byakuya is dead for good so the plot is taking twists.
    I’m concerned about the Technological bureau as well. What happened?! Is everyone dead there or what, and why was Juden-whats-his-face-the-gate-keeper-guy killing them all? Quincies must be behind it, perhaps like what they did with the hollow construct that was absorbed in HM.
    Speaking of HM, it’s hard to tell. Who has enough power to completely one shot a quincy while he’s using a defensive blut? Not many characters we know of. Perhaps it’s Halibel, the last remaining arrancar? Or perhaps it’s Aizen, which doesnt really make sense since he’s locked up outside of the soul society and lost his soul reaper. (If you remember, the hogyoku was responsible for his zanpaktou dissolving. He may be immortal because of the subjugation of the hogyoku, but without his soul reaper powers, he wouldn’t be a very valuable asset.)
    Perhaps a new character?

If you notice during Ichigos and Nnoritras fight, you see Grimmjow was gone. I still dont know were he is. If he was in Hueco Mundo, the Vandenreich would have captured him. He might be in the world of the living. Plus Neliel is very powerful, she could have killed Kirge. Or Gin useing his Bankai.

        Well, think about it, if you’re attacking a collection of Shinigami, who have soldiers, research centre’s, medic centre’s, etc… how would you go around to cripple that nation? Well it would be the medic and research and technology center. Without those, they can’t transfer messages around in timely manner, for example if they know how to defeat the Quincy, the message wouldn’t be transferred to everyone… And attacking medical centres, not yet happened but may come soon, could be the next thing, healing injured soldiers and sending them back to fights is necessary, so taking those resources away from the shinigami would also have a large impact of the Shinigami’s….

      Lol, what Nnoitra did was use the inner part of his sword to push him off, he didn’t cut him or anything. At that point, we saw Grimmjows face with such a shock that he knew he was going to die, but the one thing we did see was his death! We did not see his dead body, when we saw him he was still alive at his near death stage.
      With Kira, we saw his arm get blown away then his reiatsu disappear…. That is far from him being dead. It could mean any number of things such as coma, or he has reiatsu but it’s too small to detect… I know that Kubo is seriously amazing us with all these twists, but concerning Byakuya, I personally now think that he’s possibly dead, although we never actually saw a proper death of him in the manga, it’s a chance for Kubo to step the anime back one episode by making it all about byakuya, giving him a proper death..
      From the Research Bureau, it seems that some have escaped while others are going to be controlled by whoever is controlling Jidanbou.

      Its not fully sure if he was even using his Defensive Blut… I think because at the time he was trying to attack Ichigo, he may have been using the Offensive Blut, so it left his whole body venerable for anyone to attack…You could be correct with a new character, but it could also be any of Grimmjow, Karin, Gin or as some have said, Hollow Ichigo, seemingly impossibly. Although after some thinking, i’d like to put forward Yammy through, what do you think about Yammy, Number 0, most powerful and stupid Espada… He has this type of destructive power…

        Again you point the right thing, he was going to attack, so he used his offensive Blut. But he was going to attack Sado and Orihime, not Ichigo.

        It can’t be Yammy, he’s completely dead XD after such a shot from Zaraki. But, your spelling gave me an idea, that it could be… Yama! Yamamoto Genryuusai Shigekuni I mean. The sword really looks like his.

And Kirge’s Bult Vene is powerful enough to block Ichigo’s Tensa Zangestu’s blade with his back forearm. And took a point-blank Bankai Gestuga Tensho and took no damage. His Bult Arterie was strong enough to counter Ichigo’s Bankai Gestuga Tensho and injure Ichigo too. But Ichigo got to injure Kirge too cause of his speed and speedy attacks. But Kirge traped Ichigo in a Reishi Cage and not even a point-blank Bankai Gestuga Tensho

          The Blut Vene and Blut Arterie are both fantastic, they are hell powerful to defend against the Getsuga Tenshou, it’s going to be hell on Soul Society if Ichigo isn’t able to quickly react when the Stern Ritter’s change from Vene to Arterie because is possibly the only chance he may get to kill them..

And everyone he cut became normal again. So its more likely hes dead but you never know. I still think its either Gin, Kirio from the Royal Guards, or Neliel.

          Plus the only way to return a persons memories to normal is to cut them, Tsukishima didn’t cut the friends and families a second time so the only way they returned to normal was for Tsukishima to die…

    I’m sorry to sound like a love-struck, over acting fan but I don’t think Byakuya’s dead. I was really devastated about the latest chapter but c’mon… He’s a major character. Major characters die in an EPIC way. I mean, look a Gin’s and Tousen’s death. I didn’t even feel like crying in 502, whilst in the episode where Gin and Tousen died, I nearly cried.

    If Kubo-sensei’s planning on killing major characters, the least he could give is justice on their death. and that justice wasn’t given to Byakuya.

    and BTW, it’s really to early to say that he’s dead. and Kira too. Until it’s REALLY confirmed we can’t be sure…

    Kenpachi’s appearance is epic, but I don’t think he’ll win. remember, the BOSS is for Ichigo to fight.

    1. Ne3X7

      From now on, the way Kubo showed us Byakuya’s death (he’s likely dead) is a PROPER DEATH in Bleach.

      I came up with such an idea quite recently. It is based on two moments. First, the things were going really quick in the beginning of the arc. I was disappointed with the way Kubo sent Ichigo in HM, it was VERY quick. So, I guess Kubo’s planning to finish WHOLE BLEACH quite soon. Or he’s got something to show us, something epic, and he wants to get to the moment as soon as possible. Second, Bleach was the same all over the years, now it’s 11 yrs old and Kubo might want to change it somehow. Speed, violence, wow-effect and fans crying rivers.

      Yeah, I consider Ichigo vs. Buckbeard fight that epic moment. If no one of them dies before the fight, which is also possible.

        Well this is the Final Arc and the Arrancar Arc lasted like 4 years, 7 years in the anime. But this one will last like maybe 6 years, and 9 years in anime. Its the Final Arc, no more after this, it will answer all our question. Plus i dont think Byakuya is dead, just on the edge of it. When a Shinigami is close to dieing, there spiritual pressure disappears and there Zanpakuto shattered. Doesn’t really mean he died, and the Blond Stern Ritter said Byakuya’s Reishi disappeared and hes dieing. The same happened to Renji after losing to Byakuya, and Rukia after defeating Aaroniero. And Sado losing to Nnoritra. And Ichigo losing to Ulquiorra. And dieing fight Ulquiorra in his Segundo Etapa and his Cero Oscuros. So i still think Byakuya’s alive, Tite does this all the time. I think this just shows what the Stern Ritter & Jagdermee can do with the Captains stolen Bankai. Im just hoping he’s alive 😦

As also wears a black mask that covers the lower half of her/his face. And features five spikes running down her/his center.

    Personally: As seems quite at first during battles, but freely talks and lectures about fear and knows many ways of making her/his opponents fear her/him. She/He openly insults her/his comrade the masked Stern Ritter after defeating Renji Abarai for not letting him unleash his Bankai for him to steal it. And for not knowing that some of the Gotei 13 Vice-Captains know Bankai and read the Daten that there Majesty has given to them

    Enhanced Strength: Despite her/ his thin appears, As does have powerful physical strength. Capable of blocking Renji’s Shikai Zabimaru with little effort. Even when Renji jumped high in the air to Strengthen his Shikai attack, As effortlessly blocked his attack, even when Renji has strong physical strength himself.

    Fear Mastery: Because her/his Spirit Weapon manipulates fear into anyone thats attacked by it. As knows all the types of fears there is in any of her/his opponents. Even knowing that sheer willpower wont be enough to stop her/his powers. Even explaining that fear is not a feeling but an instinct.

    Reishi Absorption: As a Quincy, As can primarily absorb Reishi from the atmosphere and and combined it with there own Reishi in form weapons. As does this with her/ his Quincy Cross and forms her/his Spirit Weapon. Even able to charge a Heiling Pfeil and fire from her/his hands and injure Byakuya’s chest.

    Immense Spiritual Power: As a member of the Stern Ritter, As has immense spiritual power. Capable of fight both Byakuya Kuchiki and Renji Abarai, who both are Captain-level Shinigami. Even capable of condensed her/his Reishi and create a pillar of Blue Flames to engage the Shinigami.

    Blue Flames: A primary technique that all the Stern Ritter know, As is capable of condenseing her/his Reishi and create a pillar of blue flames to engage the Shinigami. Hers/His pillar towers of the Soul Society and sets fire to everything around her/his.

    Bult: An advanced Quincy technique that grants s inhumane defensive and offensive capabilities, caused by Reishi flowing into the users blood s.

    Blut Vene: As’s defensive form of Bult is strong enough to negate the attacks of Renji Abarais Shikai Zabimaru, but its not absolute and can be torn with sufficient power. As seen when Byakuya Kuchiki’s Shikai Senbonzakura managed to cut As’s right arm. But its still strong enough to negate Byakuya’s sealed Zanpakuto.

    Blut Arterie: As’s offense Bult increases the power of her/his Spirit Weapon Arrows as well as her/his physical strength. Even increasing her/his Heiling Pfeil.

    Spirit Weapon:
    Reishi Arrows: Using her/his powers as a Quincy, As is capable of forming both spirit energy & particles in order to transform them into weapons. Hers/His favored weapon manifests in the form of several luminous arrows that float around her/his person. They are used to viciously impale victims, as they can even pierce the body of a Captain-level Shinigami with ease. And kill several unseated Shinigami with similar ease

    Heiling Pfeil: As can form her/his Spirit Weapon to Heiling Pfeil that move at a much faster speed then her/his Reishi Arrows. She can also charge one into her/his hand and fire it with similar speed. Its currently unknown to how many she/he can fire at once, but one is powerful enough to pierce the chest of a Captain-level Shinigami.

    Fear Manipulation: Despite Their considerable attack strength, the true power of her/his Arrows are not in its physical strength, but their ability to induce limitless fear into those that are struck. Just a single attack can cause inspire a deep-seated fear of As. Causing victims to doubt everything and lose all there rational thought. While this normally would cause immediate death, a person’s heart being unable to bear the intense shock, an individual’s experience and willpower can be used to resist this fear to an extent, but As is confident that all would succumb to it eventually.

    Quincy: Vollstandig: Unknown.

    Ransotengai: German for “hevanly wild puppet suit” This high level Quincy technique that allows the user to control their body parts by using strings of Reishi controlled by their brain. Forming lines and strings out of countless Reishi. By using this technique, the user can control their body as one would to a puppet, allowing them to move freely despite paralysis, broken limbs, or any other force that would impeade normal movement.

His are moderatly powerful, able to generate considerable explosions upon impact. Also able to severely injure a Vice-Captain-level Arrancars, as well as moderatly injure a Captain-level Shinigami.

When its activated, a substantial amount Reishi is realised, resulting in a formation of a column of Reishi that ends in a large Quincy Cross, in which Kirge comes out with the Quincy: Vollstandig after the column shatters. Inthis form, Kirge gains various accessories made of Reishi including angelic wings, boots, gauntlets on both wrists, a sword coming out his right hand, a large holster across his chest and a halo shaped like the Vandenreich symbol. His eyes changed dramatically, appearing black & white stripes coming down. He claims this form is different from Quincy: Letzt Stil as hevan is from earth.

    Complete Reishi Dominance: Kirge is able to absorb a large amount of Reishi at the tip of his Spirit Weapon to use as a powerful attack. Powerful enough to completely overpower Ichigo’s Shikai Gestuga Tensho. When useing Bult Arterie, this attack can counter Ichigo’s Bankai Gestuga Tensho and injure Ichigo as well. Kirge’s absorption has exponentially increased. He can absorb the trees, sand, rocks, and even the buildings in Hueco Mundo, as well as Orihime Inoue’s Santen Kisshun.

    Sklaveri: German for “slavery” Japanese for “holy slave”. Uses the most basic ability to gather Reishi in th most powerful way, by enslaving it. It can literally tear away the components that make up spiritual based objects such as those that make up Soul Society and Hueco Mundo. As well as spiritual beings. When the body of a spiritual being is absorbed, Kirge can literally assume the characteristics and associated capabilities of his victims.

    Heiling Pfeil Halbkreis: German for “Semicircle holy arrow” A technique were Kirge draws a semicircle of Reishi in the air with his Spirit Weapon and it fires up to 24 Heiling Pfeil’s at his opponents. Powerful enough to cause moderate damage and a large explosion. But not strong enough as Ichigo destroyed them all with his Bashiro Tenkai technique. Bult Arterie increases this technique immensely.

    Flight: Kirge is able to use his Reishi angle wings ha has gained to fly.

    Reishi Sword: Kirge can produce a sword made entirely out of Reishi from the gauntlet on his left wrist. He can use this sword for both melee attacks and to fire his Heiling Pfeil. This sword can fire multiple Heiling Pfeil at once. Useing Bult Arterie, his sword and Heiling Pfeil immensely.

    Enhanced Heiling Pfeil: In this form, Kirge’s Heiling Pfeil have increases immensely. Causing larger explosions upon impact. He can fire six and more Heiling Pfeil at once. There power enough to severely injure two Captain-level Shinigami, Captain-level Fullbringer, and one spiritual enhanced human with one shot each. Using Bult Arterie, his Multiple Heiling Pfeil can counter Ichigo’s Bankai Gestuga Tensho and severely injure him as well.

    Enhanced Spiritual Awareness: Kirge can sense at a far greater level, allowing him to surpass any ability that hides one Reishi if his more powerful then his opponent.

    Enhanced Sealing & Binding Heiling Pfeil: In this form allows Kirge to increase immensely his sealing & binding techniques. Kirge’s codename “J” gives Kirge teromandens skills in this technique. Using Blut Vene, this techniques increases immensely.

    Reishi Constructs: Kirge can fire off Reishi constructs that can force close gateways between dimensions. Using Bult Vene, this technique because powerful enough to close gateways to the Soul Society as well as reopen gateways from Hueco Mundo.

    Reishi Cage. The most powerful sealing & binding technique. Kirge fires Heiling Pfeil at his opponents and trap them in powerful Reishi cages. The strength of these cages is such that not even a point-blank Bankai Gestuga Tensho from Ichigo are able to break it. Kirge’s codename “The Jail” was given to him for his master skill in this type of technique.

I think he can use it like a suite of armor. He can fly and deliver power mellee attacks. But we’v only seen him use it and it killed his opponents with one strike.

                  Thats what im hoping for too. Toshiro and Rangiku can both come up with a plan to get his Bankai back. We probably wont see Rangiku’s Bankai cause its too soon and a Stern Ritter will come out of nowhere and steal hers. I do believe Bambietta will release Sajin’s Bankai Kokujo Tengen Myo o after she shows her true power of her codename “E”

                  Oh and Soifon and Omaeda can come up with a plan also to get her Bankai Jakuho Raikoben like they did trying to injure Barragon. She can use her Shunpo techniques ( aka Onmitsukido techniques like Senka, Utsusemi, 15 Clones technique) and her Shunko to counter that Midevel Knight Stern Ritter’s Bult Vene & Bult Arterie.
