Bleach 553 shows a completely new Toshiro Hitsugaya with a new Bankai Form! It seems to be true that Toshiro’s Bankai has changed and seems as though he no longer has any limitations over using his power! After gaining their Bankai’s back from the Stern Ritter’s, they’ve taken it to themselves to enable their precious Bankai’s in order to shoot down BG9, as Sui Feng did, while Toshiro gets up in style to reveal that his Bankai is his, then freezing Cang Du completely!
Bleach 553 begins as Toshiro’s Bankai falls off Cang Du asking what is currently going on, he quickly notices that his Bankai seems to be transferring from Cang Du to Toshiro! Cang Du mentions that his medallion has not be affected, why is the Bankai returning to him, while Toshiro mentions that he doesn’t know. Maybe Hyorinmaru just wants to come back.
BG9 analyses Sui Feng’s body when he asks Omaeda if he still resist after his captain was defeated, he just wants to collect some data before she does. He gets closer and gives her the pill to which it reacts, he mentions that with that pill she’ll be able to use her Bankai again, he doesn’t know the details. BG9 quickly notices a difference in him.
He mentions that the connection is not working properly, Sui Feng mentions that the hollowfied Bankai is impairing their bodily functions. Sui Feng mentions that she had to wake up after hearing Urahara’s voice. She quickly enables her Bankai, Jakuho Raikoben, to which BG9 notices that her Bankai has returned to her. Sui Feng quickly mentions for him to get a hit by her Bankai and analyze it.
Omaeda helps her aim it to which it does and she quickly fires it. It seems to have gotten a direct hit to which an explosion so large appears right above everyone, even Cang Du and Toshiro feel it’s force. Cang Du tells them not to underestimate them, they had trained in order to control their Bankai. Cang Du goes for an attack with its ice attack which repels off Toshiro like nothing. Toshiro mentions that it’s impossible to attack itself, to which he does to kick it, however that also doesn’t work.
Cang Du mentions for them to stop talking as though the Bankai has a soul. Toshiro jumps to the sky to which he asks Cang Du if he really thinks Bankai’s don’t have a soul, however Hyorinmaru replies mentions that it seems like they don’t think so. Toshiro is happy to hear his voice again. From this point on he enables his fully new Bankai form! Toshiro’s New Bankai Form has been fully enables and it looks amazing!
Cang Du notices that his wings have completely vanished, Toshiro notices that he knew that his face was different, he also notices that his Bankai was hollowfied a little to disable the link of Quincy and Bankai. Toshiro mentions that he’ll have to use his technique to which She Jin Zhao is used.
It’s a dragon like trap to which traps Cang Du, Toshiro then points his sword at him, to which Cang Du notices that Hyorinmaru’s crest is a cross-shaped flower. Out of nowhere, Toshiro uses this and completely freezes Cang Du in a cross-shaped ice to which Toshiro mentions that he’s sorry for not making it into a pentagram. Bleach 553 ends here.
What an awesome chapter, Toshiro has really upped his game when it comes to Bankai’s, plus he no longer has three limits of using his Bankai, it seems that he’s be able to perfect his Bankai to a point that he’s fully compatible and able to use it’s fully power, it’s awesome to now know that Captain’s and Vice captains can use their absolute Bankai. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 554 when the Bankai’s attack back!
