Bleach 507 continues with the incredible battle between Yamamoto and Juha Bach! We learn that Yamamoto’s Bankai Sword isn’t just a sword, but an intense Zanpakuto which turns everything into ash, even the Blut Vene system would not be compared to Yamamoto. Yamamoto also reveals his Zanka No Tachi East & West!
Bleach 507 continues on from last week’s chapter as the Blond Stern Ritter asks himself if what Yamamoto revealed his Bankai is would even count as a Bankai. He asks himself if the little scorched blade left after the fire is the Bankai. Juha Bach tells him not to underestimate him because the Zanka No Tachi is a Bankai that incorporates in that little blade full power of Yamamoto’s Flames.
This meaning that one swing would mean the end of the opponent. It burns anything it cuts to ash, it’s a sword with tremendous flame power. Yamamoto agrees at his judgement, he says that he’s already seen his Bankai a thousand years ago and should understand how powerful it is. Yamamoto asks Juha if he thinks it’s going to be the same. He can try it on his own body to check whether it’s the same as the one a Thousand Years ago.
Ukitake and Shunsui both notice that they’re throats both feel dry, Shunsui also receives a wound on his lip as a sign that Yamamoto’s Bankai has been released. Unohana also notices the change as the pot with water starts to disappear. Isane also notices that her skin feels dry, Unohana tells her that it’s the first time she’s say something really girly.
Unohana tells herself that before Soul Society is destroyed, he should use his own power to defeat him. Toshiro and his Stern Ritter opponent are fighting, Toshiro notices that his Bankai is currently useless because all the water in Soul Society is slowly vanishing. Ukitake and Shunsui both notice that this is the power of Zanka No Tachi! Silently, Silently, Like a Glowing Ember.
Yamamoto steps forward and swings his sword, it cuts the cape which Juha Bach is wearing but no fire or flames appeared. He asks himself if he’s Bankai did change compared to the one a Thousand Years ago. He reminds himself of all the abilities of a Shikai and Bankai, he tells himself that a Shikai and Bankai don’t use a different ability.
The power of Yamamoto’s Bankai is fire, there is no mistaking it that it’s fire, so then he asks himself where the flames went. Yamamoto touches his sword on the ground, moments later, the ground which the sword touched completely vanished. Juha Bach is flabbergasted as the unseen potential of Yamamoto’s Bankai!
Juha Bach shouts at Yamamoto that it’s the point. Yamamoto tells him that he’s correct, Yamamoto then keeps on swinging the sword. Yamamoto then releases his power, Zanka No Tachi, East! Kyoku Jitsu Jin! He says that all the heat of his flames is focused on the edge of the blade!
Yamamoto tells Juha Bach that his Bankai doesn’t burn nor does it fire up anything, it just blows away! Anything it touches it left without any traces. Yamamoto keeps on attacking, he reveals that even the Quincy’s Defensive Blut Vene has no effect.
Juha Bach then reveals that it’s a boring Bankai because all he needs to do is attack Yamamoto without touching the sword, so cut Yamamoto on any of his body parts. Juha Bach tries to attack Yamamoto on his head he looks at his sword and notices that it’s completely disappeared!
Yamamoto tells Juha that he’s too confident. Yamamoto repeats himself, he just said Zanka No Tachi, East! He tells Juha that if there’s an East, then there’s a west! Juha Bach then lays his eyes upon Yamamoto’s change in Bankai! Yamamoto shows him the Zanka No Tachi, West! Zan Jutsu Gokui (Literally Meaning Prison Uniform of the Remaining Sun).
Yamamoto shows Juha Bach this form and tells him that it reaches a temperature of 1,500,00 Degrees! He tells him that he cannot even touch him whilst using his Bankai! It’s as if his body and sword are clad in the sun’s flames! Juha Bach states at Yamamoto in fear as well as shock as it seems he won’t be able to do anything! Bleach 507 ends here!
Yamamoto is seriously trumping Juha Bach right now, it’s as though Juha Bach won’t be able to do anything! But the one thing we still haven’t seen is Juha Bach show us any of his powers yet so Juha Bach could still defeat Yamamoto is he showed off his powers too! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 508! Hopefully the battle between these two will continue!
