Bleach 506: Bankai: Zanka No Tachi by NanFe Bleach 506: Bankai: Zanka No Tachi by NanFe
Captain Commander's Bankai: Zanka No Tachi

This is the first time I do a fanart for Captain Commander for my 2 years knowing Bleach.

Bleach's Fans, this is, after about 10 years, we witness the strongest, the oldest Zanpakutou's Bankai, do you know how important this event is?

Even the fight with Aizen, even lost his left arm, we could never see his Bankai.....

I think it's time for me to show my respect ;______;

Damn, I love how Captain Commander said Bankai, the flames vanished, it's like " A Calm Before the Storm", SO AWESOME!

I SERIOUSLY hope that the fight will be worth for the epicness, not something stupid like stealing Bankai or etc.....

and yes, asssss the level of trolling of Tite Kubo that everybody knows, we have to be ready to say farewell to Captain Yamamoto....., you know what I meant *sigh*

out of topic:
but,,,,,,,ah come on, even he soooo pissed off at least leaves the motherfucker quincy who killed Byakuya, such an easy death, I refuse to accept

you can see the WIP of this painting on my Tumblr Blog.

This is soooooo damn amazing! Though, for me, Kubo did the biggest troll-move ever , since I got so pumped up for Yamato kicking Yuha´s ass...

Zanka no Tachi is a badass bankai, but it makes no goddamn sense. Fire does not work that way. Heat does not work that way. PHYSICS IN GENERAL do not work that way!

If Zanka no Tachi really is as hot as Kubo says it is, every single law of nature says it should be glowing like the freaking sun, no matter how "focused" it is. It just rubs me the wrong way, because to me, it is utterly nonsensical. It. Just. Does. Not. Work. That. Way!

"So hot it cannot be seen". There is no such thing. Goddammit Kubo, you fail physics, thermodynamics in particular, FOREVER!

...Zanka no Tachi is still awesome. Even if it makes no sense.

anime itself makes no sense

I think he actually said it was his spiritual power manifesting in the appearance of flames, but not actually flames itself.

Yama Ji your bankai was truly epic, you were a true boss.

Have to be honest, Yama Ji death was tragic, but I kind of saw it coming, it wasn't like I predicted it, it was more like a rite of passage, in ever manga series a powerful old guy usually dies in battle:
Naruto: Third Hokage, Hiruzen Sarutobi.
One Piece: 'Whitebeard' Edward Newgate.
Now Bleach: Head Captain Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto.

I think I see why Kubo did it this way, he couldn'y Yama Ji die without showing us his bankai and how he used it and he couldn't let him use it on small fry, he actually used it on someone who easily defeated Kenpachi.

But once again, R.I.P Yamaji you will be avenged.
