Bleach 556 gets awesome! We see Komamura hide something awesome, after he’s armored is destroyed by Bambietta’s Explosive Bombs, we see something awesome, it’s as though he’s trained and learned to transforms into a human form. He’s learned to do a Human Metamorphosis Technique to which his clan could also use. It allows for them to gain an immense amount of power from it. When he activates his Bankai, Kokujou Tengen Myouou, Dangai Joue, we see a whole different Bankai!
Bleach 556 begins as Shinji flies off as he’s just been hit directly by Bambietta’s attack. After getting hit, it then explodes. Bambietta mentions that even if she’s inverted, it’s not going to affect her, at the end of the day it’s just some illusion, and thus beneath her. If her sense and surroundings can’t understand each other, she’s just going to destroy everything with her powers, E for Explode.
Her wings expand and release a type of bomb which lands on the ground just like rain. Bambietta notices that Komamura has stepped in to help Shinji. Hinamori steps in to try and get Bambietta in an attack however Komamura gets her and pushes her away from there, she now notices the extent of her power. He tells her that a shield such as hers isn’t enough.
Komamura is told that his bucket on his head will not help him shield himself. Komamura tries to attack her but she goes up, at the same time he thinks that he cannot afford to get a clean hit by Bambietta’s attack, she has to continue dodging them. There is a small delay from getting hit and it exploding. Thus his armor should provide enough bugger to dodge it away.
It quickly explodes, Bambietta mentions that he had noticed the anomaly and quickly moved his head, shes impressed by his animal instincts. She mentions that her blasts aren’t something that can be neutralised, since the truth is that reishi in the balls become a bomb instead of it being a reishi bomb.
Bambietta fires more and Komamura tells her to stay behind him to which he would like to protect them. There is a large explosion to which it breaks half a building. She mentions that such an attack should have left a mark, it won’t be enough to kill him but he would have seen better days. Time to see what he’s been hiding behind the mask she mentions.
However from now on, we see a brand new and awesome looking Komamura! IT’s as though he’s changed from a fox to a human, although he still has patches of hair on his arm. Bambietta now mentions that this isn’t the face she remembers since it looks a lot more serious. We go back to Komamura before to which it seems that he may have won the battle.
Human Metamorphosis Technique, the name of their clans forbidden ritual. For their sins they committed, their wolfman clan were sent to the beast realm during the afterlife. This meant that no one died and therefore they would all eventually make their way back to Soul Society. by temporarily casting aside those chains their clan can once again revert back to their true form before being cast into the beast realm and with it comes immeasurable power, this is the true nature of the Human Metamorphosis Technique.
To achieve this he has to place his heart on a plate. He has to do this in exchange he’ll do the Human Metamorphosis Ritual. His grandfather mentions that he is not obligated to sacrifice his life for some menial shinigami. Komamura mentions that living in the shadows tore at his very soul, he abandoned the clan and sought refuge elsewhere. Yamamoto took him in. Everything he is, is because of him, that’s why he’s going to help get revenge on the Quincy! He takes out his own heart.
We see a much serious and awesome Komamura to which he holds his sword and calls out of Bankai, Kokujou Tengen Myouou, Dangai Joue! (Literally Meaning Heavenly Armor of Rope) to which we see an even awesome Bankai from Komamura, instead of wearing Armor, we see a body with next to no armor with a massive rope. It looks fantastic, a little like Ichigo’s Hollow form. Bleach 556 ends here.
What an awesome chapter, it just keeps on getting better and better, it’s even getting more and more exciting with all the awesome stuff! I can’t wait for the chapter to show how Komamura’s awesome Bankai fights with such a rope. I guess we’ll also see how it can defend itself during next week’s Bleach 557!
