Kaname Tosen Respect Thread

"She longed for peace more than anyone. Her sense of justice was stronger than anybody's. But she never got a chance to fight for what she believed in. What was lacking? Wasn't it enough that she wished for peace and justice with all her heart? Then I wish for power, for the power to impose peace. If justice is what's lacking, then I will become justice incarnate. And all the evil of this world shall be blown away like clouds. This I swear in the name of justice."

"This isn't personal, but I must eliminate you to restore peace." (Ch. 146)

"I believe that anyone who disrupts the peace should pay. That's all." (Ch. 213)

"Killing without purpose is only murder. On the other hand, killing with purpose is justice." (Ch. 213)

"In what way is a Soul Reaper becoming more like a Hollow depraved? That's a simplistic judgement from one who sees all Hollows as bad and all Soul Reapers as good." (Ch. 384)

"Power is not the most important thing for a warrior. It's the fear of battle. It's because we know the fear of battle that we are able to grasp our swords and fight for those who also fear battle. Those who don't fear the very sword they hold are not worthy of holding one. Hisagi, if you're really afraid of fighting, you've already acquired something invaluable to a warrior." (Ch. 384)

"I do fear something. I've had the same fear for a hundred years. The fear of assimilating and dying as a Soul Reaper." (Ch. 384)

"You said I was depraved, as though acquiring power by deceiving my comrades and subordinates was a base deed. Then let me ask you this. If someone were to join an organization for revenge and lose sight of his true purpose and become complacent in his new life, wouldn't that be depraved? To my blind eyes, that seems even worse." (Ch. 385)

"Then tell me what justice is!! To forgive the one who murdered a beloved friend? That certainly would be virtuous! It's beautiful! Blindingly beautiful!! But is virtue justice?! No!! To live in peace without avenging the dead is vice!!" (Ch. 385)

Kaname Tosen was the previous Captain of the 9th Division of the 13 Court Guard Squads until he betrayed the Soul Society to join Sosuke Aizen and Gin Ichimaru. Before that he served as the 5th seat of the 9th Division under Captain Kensei Muguruma before Hollowfying Kensei and other members of the Visoreds, all acting under the orders of Aizen. He joined the 13 Court Guard Squads after a woman he loved was killed by her Soul Reaper husband but he joined out of revenge, extremely distraught over the fact that someone who loved justice and peace so much could be killed just like that. His philosophy in life is to take the path of least violence and bloodshed, although he isn't above killing a few the satisfy the many.

Zanpaku-To

Kensei Muguruma Respect Thread [Work-in-progress]

No Caption Provided

Kensei Muguruma is the Captain of the 9th Division of the 13 Court Guard Squads and a Visored. Over 100 years before the start of the series, Kensei was already a Captain before being betrayed by his 5th Seat Kaname Tosen and forced to undergo Hollowfication as a part of Sosuke Aizen's experiments. He was exiled from the Soul Society and forced to live in the Human World, where he met Shinji Hirako and became a member of the Visoreds. He worked with them until the fateful battle against Sosuke Aizen and his army of Espada, where after his defeat, Kensei was reinstated as a Captain of the 13 Court Guard Squads. Kensei is a very serious person and doesn't take too kindly to childish or immature behavior, scolding a young Shuhei Hisagi for crying after a Hollow attack and getting constantly mad at his Vice Captain and later fellow Visored Mashiro Kuna. He does care deeply about his comrades however, but has a hard time expressing it around his tough demeanor and speech.

Izuru Kira Respect Thread [Work-in-progress]

"Oh. That's right. You performed some kind of screaming ritual before we fought. Maybe you think that's a proper way for a warrior to conduct himself, but that's incomprehensible to me. Third Company's flower is a Kinsenka, the Marigold. It symbolizes despair. It's also the symbol of our confidence and pride. Fighting isn't heroic. It's not meant to be exhilarating. Violence should only bring despair. It's dark and terrifying. It must remain gruesome, otherwise people won't fear it and try to avoid it."

"To my mind, Wabisuke of all the zanpaku-to, best exemplifies Third Company's philosophy. It increases the weight of whatever it cuts. Those who are cut by it are forced to crawl, unable to bear their own weight. And they always bow their heads as if asking for forgiveness. That's why it's called Wabisuke (Apology). You asked what I intended to cut with this silly-looking blade. A warrior should never beg for his life." (Ch. 323

He first threw one of his blades at Findorr Calius, moved into close range to attack with his other, and then dodged by leaning back and falling down towards the street. When Findorr went to chase him, Hisagi pulled on his chain so that the original blade came flying down, intended to slice through Findorr's neck:

(Ch. 322) Fuji Kujaku is only a partial Shikai. Yumichika's zanpaku-to's real name is Ruri Iro Kujaku but it has color preferences. It loves blue but hates fuji (wisteria). Yumichika uses this partial Shikai because everyone in 11th Company have dedicated their lives to fighting and have an unspoken rule, that they only use their zanpaku-to for direct attacks. For a zanpaku-to like Ruri Iro Kujaku, Yumichika would be labeled a coward if anyone saw him use his actual Shikai's abilities and would have died before letting someone see his Shikai's actual ability:

When she activates this ability she slashes her sword and creates a circle on the ground, but anything within its domain is frozen. Arrancar No. 16 Droy believed he had escaped the ability because he jumped up in the air, but since he was still within the circle of Tsukishiro, he was frozen in place. After a target has been frozen, the ice breaks apart and takes the target with it:

"Aizen, you said a blade without hatred is like an eagle without wings, that a sword swung out of duty couldn't reach you. I'll tell you since you don't seem to know. Swinging a sword for duty alone is what a Captain does. To swing a sword out of hatred is just violence. We don't call that a battle." (Ch. 389)

"That's right. To kill you I'd gladly give up my Captaincy." (Ch. 390)

Accolades

(Ch. 146) There are three ways to become a Captain of the 13 Court Guards squads:

No Caption Provided

(Ch. 361) Shunsui Kyoraku tells Espada No. 1 Coyote Starkk that it's hard to tell who's bankai is stronger, his or Toshiro's, and that in another 100 years or so Toshiro will most likely surpass him:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

(Ch. 155) This is impressive because Shunsui was described as in a class of his own, having transcendent combat skills, and was skilled enough that the Commander General Genryusai Yamamoto saw him as his own son:

Soul Reaper Basics

(Ch. 49) As a Soul Reaper, Toshiro materializes spirit energy from his own soul and manifests it into his zanpaku-to:

(Ch. 105) In Bleach, a battle between two people is a battle of spiritual power. If one opponent's spiritual power isn't strong enough, they can't even cut a stronger opponent. This is displayed and described by Kenpachi Zaraki when he let's Ichigo Kurosaki get in a free cut during their fight. Ichigo swings as hard as he can but doesn't scratch Kenny and even his hands start to bleed:

(Ch. 187) Although a Soul Reaper's zanpaku-to and spiritual power and directly related, meaning the bigger the zanpaku-to the more spiritual power, Captain-class Soul Reapers know how to hone their blades down to manageable sizes, otherwise they'd be swinging around swords the size of buildings:

Zanpaku-To

Shikai

(Ch. 120) All zanpaku-to have two releases, shikai and bankai. Shikai is the first release and occurs when a Soul Reaper calls out their sword's name and along with bankai, needs to be mastered in order to become a Captain:

No Caption Provided

(Ch. 127) The essence of Shikai is to communicate and synchronize with your zanpaku-to:

No Caption Provided

(Ch. 548) Of all the Captains' Shikai and bankai abilities, Hyorinmaru is the zanpaku-to with the least difference between the two:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

(Ch. 358) Not only is Hyorinmaru a Cryo-type zanpaku-to, it's the ultimate Cryo-type, and all water is a weapon for Toshiro:

Tenso Jurin

(Ch. 359) Tenso Jurin, or Weather Subjugation, is one of Hyorinmaru's basic abilities and also its greatest ability:

(Ch. 132) Toshiro's zanpaku-to is named Hyorinmaru and he activates his Shikai by saying the phrase "Reign Over the Frosted Heavens, Hyorinmaru!" His blade summons a dragon made of water and ice due to his overflowing spiritual pressure. When he activated his Shikai in his short fight with Gin Ichimaru, he told Izuru Kiba that if he wasn't 7.3 miles away, Toshiro couldn't be certain that Izuru wouldn't be caught up in the fight and killed:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

(Ch. 132) Toshiro sends Hyorinmaru to attack Gin Ichimaru and although he wasn't the intended target, Izuru Kira said he couldn't avoid all of the water from the attack and was splashed for being so close. Immediately after the water got on him, though, it started freezing and judging from his screams, caused him pain and immobilized him:

(Ch. 132) Toshiro catches Gin Ichimaru off-guard and is able freeze his entire left arm:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

(Ch. 466/467) This wasn't even in shikai (or if it was we didn't see Toshiro activate it) but he freezes about six large Hollows/monsters in an instant before they could attack Fullbring:

Rokui Hyoketsujin

(Ch. 551) Toshiro uses mist to slow down the Stern Ritter Bazz-B, buying himself time to set up Rokui Hyoketsujin, Six Point Ice Formation, in an attempt to freeze him once inside. Although Bazz-B is able to free himself, you can see how big the formation is in the last scan:

Bankai

(Ch. 120) Bankai is the second release of a Soul Reaper's zanpaku-to and in general, increases the users power by five to ten times. Even if you have exceptional skill and talent, mastering bankai can still take a Soul Reaper up to and at least ten years:

No Caption Provided

(Ch. 127) Where Shikai is the essence of communicating and synchronizing with one's zanpaku-to, bankai requires a Soul Reaper to externalize the zanpaku-to and force it into submission. It usually takes at least ten years for this training because the zanpaku-to needs to be summoned to our world:

No Caption Provided

(Ch. 162) According to Byakuya Kichiki, only the most experienced Soul Reapers can achieve bankai:

No Caption Provided

(Ch. 170) Toshiro's bankai is called Daiguren Hyorinmaru, Great Roaring Coldly Shining Moon, and it summons two pairs of ice wings and an ice tail when he activates it. His right arm also gets frozen over with a dragon head and three four-leafed petals float in the air behind him:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

(Ch. 171) When he activated it against Sosuke Aizen, it froze the ground around the room they were in, froze large pillars near him, and dropped the temperature enough in the room for Aizen to be able to see his breath:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

(Ch. 234) Even if Daiguren Hyorinmaru is destroyed, Toshiro can always summon him back as long as there is water around:

(Ch. 507) The drawback and weakness of this bankai is that it can't be used if there isn't enough or any water or moisture in the atmosphere or if Toshiro is nearby a hot enough source of heat:

Hyoten Hakkaso

(Ch. 358/359) Toshiro has never used this ability before while in bankai at the time of the Soul Society's fight with Sosuke Aizen, but he claims he doesn't have to necessarily wait for a lot of water to perform it because all of the water in the atmosphere is at his command.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

(Ch. 359) Hyoten Hakkaso, Frozen Heavens Hundred Flower Funeral, uses the water in the atmosphere to allow Toshiro to be able to summon forth a massive amount of snow that once it touched an opponent, it freezes instantly into the shape of a flower. Once a hundred flowers have blossomed, the enemy is trapped inside a large structure of ice and their life disappears:

(Ch. 516) Normally once a bankai is destroyed it can never be returned to the way it once was. The only exception to this that Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi has studied and found is Kokujo Tengen Myo-Oh because of the close ability and relationship it has with Komamura. If he gets healed from an injury, so does Kokujo Tengen Myo-Oh heal its injuries:

Jinka no Jutsu

(Ch. 556) Komamura is a member of the Werewolf Clan who's members were sent to the Hell of Beasts for sins they committed during their lifetime. By temporarily severing the chain that binds them to their sin, members of the Werewolf clan can gain a tremendous boost in power and return to their human forms. In order to do this, Komamura had to rip out his own heart with his own hands and offer it to his clan's elder. Only after that was he taught how to use Jinka no Jutsu, or Humanification:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

(Ch. 557) Jinka no Jutsu offers Komamura an immortal body, which is why he had to give his heart to his clan's elder. As long as Komamura is in his human body, he is immortal:

(Ch. 557) This is proven when the Stern Ritter Bambietta blew a hole in Komamura's chest by attacking his bankai and Komamura didn't register any pain or die from the attack. He tells her that with Dangai Joue, his body is just a vessel there to defeat her:

Sui Feng Respect Thread [Work-in-progress]

"Right or wrong, it doesn't concern me. All I care about is my honor and my duties as a Captain of the 13 Court Guard Companies. Anyone getting in the way of that is my enemy. And I kill my enemies. It's that simple."

"This is the difference between you and me. As you know, when the commander of the Punishment Force bares her sword, it signifies an execution. Anyone who opposes me will be destroyed utterly." (Ch. 154)

"I always taught you to see the loss of a comrade as an opportunity. Don't get in the middle. Just stab the enemy in the back. If you're too incompetent to do even that, then let your comrade die right then and there. That's the way of the Secret Remote Squad." (Ch. 333)

"Don't think because we're fighting this battle that we're resigned to death. We're fighting to live. Saving the world is just a lofty-sounding pretext. We're fighting to save ourselves, to save you and to save everybody from Aizen." (Ch. 389)

Sui Feng is the Captain of the 2nd Division of the 13 Court Guard Squads and the commander-in-chief of the Secret Remote Squad, one of the three branches of the Soul Society. She is an extremely serious and loyal person and will follow orders given to her to a tee, not hesitating at all to enforce the execution of Rukia Kuchiki and ordering nearby Vice Captains to track down and stop Renji Abarai as he tried to escape with Rukia. She takes pride in her role as a Captain and commander of the Secret Remote Squad, and looked up to her predecessor and mentor Yoruichi Shihoin. Sui Feng won't hesitate to strike a killing blow, as she is a master assassin, and teaches her subordinates that accomplishing the mission comes before anything else, even looking at the death of a comrade as an opening to strike an opponent.

This thread will be divided into the following categories:

  • Accolades
  • Soul Reaper Basics
  • Zanpaku-to
  • Shunko
  • Kido
  • Strength
  • Speed
  • Durability/Endurance
