Bleach 664 reveals Kisuke Urahara’s Bankai as “Guanyin Biraki Benihime Atarame” or in English “Inquisition of the Crimson Princess of the Doors of Avalokitesvara”. After Askin affects Urahara with his poison, Urahara is unable to do anything, even his right eye is blown up by an attack from Askin. Urahara is in grave trouble here against Askin.
Bleach 664 begins as Askin mentions that a reiatsu that changes 48 times per second means for him that he’ll be absorbing that many reiatsu every second if he’s just taking damage and not attacking back within his Bankai. Eventually, he’ll have been exposed to all 48, and thus all that is left for him is to analyse it and develop an immunity to it, which won’t take long.
Urahara reaches for something under his clothes. We see Askin mentions that there may be other ways to change reiatsu but he’ll eventually work out and become immune to it. Further to this, we see Askin mention that for the sake of not wasting any more time, Askin wants to explain how his Vollstandig works.
His Vollstandig Hasshain adapts to the changes in the properties of the poison. No matter how much the surface layer of the poison changes, as long as the base remains the same the immunity acquired will adjust as well as render the poison instantaneously ineffective. Thus, no matter how much Urahara or Yoruichi change their reiatsu, neither of them will be able to land a single scratch on them.
Askin then reaches out as he mentions that there must be more he can do, or could he actually have exhausted all the tricks up his sleeve and played all his cards. Askin adds more protection to the poison ball they’re in, it seems like it’s something for Askin to be on the safe side. He’s set up a Bereich border.
He’s not a fan of using tough sounding words, and people who talk the talk cannot walk the walk. He wants to look like the real deal so he tries to come across as perpetually calm and composed. Further to this, he mentions that breaking out of the Gift Bereich (translation: Deadly Poison Domain) is absolutely impossible.
Urahara mentions that if he wanted them to stay there so badly, then he should have just asked. Urahara notices that Askin may not be acting out of pure loyalty. Askin mentions that he might be true to this, he mentions that Yhwach interests him. He explains that there are three worlds, real world, Hueco Mundo and Soul Society.
Yhwach’s plan is to destroy all three and to make something out of it’s destruction. There is no one that can do such a thing except for Yhwach. If Askin was to look over this, and the process involved, Askin asks when the next guy would come along and do this. Askin mentions that Urahara is a well informed and wise man, he has a face that has seen all there is to this world.
And thus asks him if he can see where he’s coming from. Whatever Yhwach will create after destroying everything is an interest to him, and thus asks if Urahara has the least bit curiosity to see it too. Urahara jumps out and swings his sword. Askin backs up as he mentions that he is shocked that he can still move in his Gift Bereich.
Urahara answers the question about the curiosity as he mentions that he’s not curious, this is when he mentions that if he was Mayuri then it would be a different story, as he might be interested in seeing what Yhwach might create. This is when Urahara mentions that if something that no one has ever seen before is about to be created, then he’s the type of individual who would want to create that blank canvas with his own two hands.
That’s what it means to be a true scientist. Askin laughs as he likes the response Urahara gave. Askin creates a Gift Ring as it starts out small and gets bigger. Askin launches towards Urahara, however it disappears. However, moments later it appears within Urahara’s eye, half inside his eye and the other half out.
It explodes causing a great deal of damage to Urahara’s eye. Askin mentions that Gift Ring is a strong weapon used on troublesome ones who the death-dealing doesn’t work. It focuses all of the potency into one focal point, pinpointing it on the part of the body that currently bears the piercing and forces an instant death.
Askin mentions that he won’t lower his potency and thus cannot go easy on him. Urahara is panting hard as he bleeds from his eye. Urahara calls out Bankai! A arge woman appears as she hunches over behind Urahara with her eyes closed. Guanyin Biraki Benihime Atarame or in English “Inquisition of the Crimson Princess of the Doors of Avalokitesvara” appears in Urahara’s time of needs. Bleach 664 ends here.
A brilliant chapter, there was a lot of talking, but it’s exactly what I expect from two really strong individuals. I honestly, can’t wait to see what Urahara’s Bankai does and what he has up his sleeve. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 664 when we see Urahara vs Askin continue.
