In the world of Bleach there are several powerful characters; among them, some of the strongest are the Shinigami who belong to the 13 Gotei and who are able to use their Zanpakuto’s bankai form during a fight.
Since there are a lot of different bankai, let’s see what are the 10 strongest bankai ever shown in the anime!
10 – KOKUJO TENGEN MYOOH (SAJIN KOMAMURA)
This bankai is a living-armor bankai: standing at about a hundred meters tall, the giant resembles an armored samurai who wields a sword with a guard similar to Komamura’s one and who copies Komamura’s movements, allowing it to deal out colossal amounts of damages. It is strong enough to take a released Arrancar’s point-blank Cero without being damaged!
In addiction, despite its enormous size, the giant is also able to be incredibly fast.
9 – TEKKEN TACHIKAZE (KENSEI MUGURUMA)
This bankai gives Kensei the ability to transform the single combat knife coming from the shikai form into a pair of large knuckle blades in which there’s all the destructive power coming from his fists, that is released on impact as an explosive force; this explosive power continues to assault his opponent as long as his fist remains in contact with his opponent.
Furthermore, when using this ability, Kensei can change its knuckle blades into brass knuckles or also into spiked gauntlets.
8 – KONJIKI ASHISOGI JIZO (MAYURI KUROTSUCHI)
This bankai looks like a giant creature with the body of a caterpillar in a red cape, with a grotesque golden baby’s head and arms, and a silver halo hovering around this head.
Its most frightening attack consists of a poisonous breath that is lethal to anyone, aside from Mayuri and Nemu; this poison spreads through an area of about 200 meters and it is almost impossible to avoid. Moreover, it’s a very dangerous poison, so much that although the opponent doesn’t breathe, it will still enter their body.
7 – JAKUHO RAIKOBEN (SOI FON)
This bankai looks like a golden armor missile launcher base that encases Soi Fon’s right arm and comes above her shoulder to form a face shield; she uses her bankai rarely because she would prefer not to use it, since believes that it offends her pride as a Covert Ops agent.
Anyway, the Jakuho Raikoben has the ability to launch a missile which tracks its target for a precision strike. After a successful hit, the missile creates a powerful and massive explosion.
6 – HIHIO ZABIMARU (RENJI ABARAI)
This bankai looks like a long, bony tail composed of vertebra-like structures which protrudes from the back of the snake-like skull until reaching and hanging around Renji’s waist.
Despite what people can think, this is a really skilled bankai, since it can fire a blast of concentrated spiritual energy from its mouth (Hikotsu Taiho), it can detach all its segments and use them to surround the enemy and execute them; it can also be used in order to transport people.
5 – TENSA ZANGETSU (ICHIGO KUROSAKI)
This bankai is considered completely out of the ordinary for any Zanpakuto, since, unlike most bankai forms which usually create some sort of massive creature or effect, Ichigo’s bankai shrinks his sword down to a kind of longer sword with a black blade very effective in blocking and deflecting attacks; furthermore, instead of the clothes his shikai form had, a short length of chain with a broken link at the end dangles from the base of the hilt and his robe is replaced with a black which is a proper part of his bankai and shows how much Reiatsu remains.
In addiction, when using his bankai, Ichigo can attack his enemy with an enhanced version of Getsuga Tensho.
4 – DAIGUREN HYORINMARU (TOSHIRO HYTSUGAYA)
Hitsugaya’s bankai causes ice to flow from Hyorinmaru onto himself, starting at his right arm, continuing forming up over his shoulders, with two large wings sprouting from his back and a long tail; the ice forms down his left arm and also his feet are encased in ice. These new ice limbs are movable, and can be used as an extension of himself; in addiction, three ice flowers start floating behind him and they melt away petal by petal as Hitsugaya’s battle progresses.
Thanks to this form, he can freeze objects and whole areas, also by swinging his tail around as a weapon to freeze objects; in addiction, this form gives him the possibility to use a huge variety of different attacks, from physical ones to weather-control attacks.
3 – KAMISHINI NO YARI (GIN ICHIMARU)
In its Bankai form, Gin’s Zanpakuto doesn’t change in appearance.
Its abilities are essentially the same as the Shikai, but its force, its cutting power, its length and its speed are vastly amplified to the point where Gin is capable of swiftly cutting an entire town in half with a single slash (his sword can be extended up to 13 km in under 0.08 seconds); because of its extension and contraction speed, the sword is highly dangerous.
2 – RYUUMON HOUZUKIMARU (IKKAKU MADARAME)
This bankai consists of a Chinese Monk’s spade and a Guandao; the pommels are connected by a heavy chain which resembles an ax blade with a dragon crest on one side of it.
Aside from the increase in power, his bankai doesn’t offer any special ability; on the contrary, it releases some Reiatsu, which starts to grow in strength. Furthermore, this incredible power gets increasingly more powerful as the fight drags on; when the crest is completely filled, Ryumon Hozukimaru is at its full power.
1 – SENBONZAKURA KAGEYOSHI (BYAKUYA KUCHIKI)
This bankai is a larger version of the shikai, with two rows of a thousand giant blades rising up from the ground; they scatter and countless flying blades (which resemble cherry blossoms) pierce the enemy. Its defensive use allows Byakuya to cover himself entirely in these tiny blades, forming a body shield and, in addiction to this incredible strength, it gives the possibility to the user to be mentally controlled, although using his hands allows him to do control it more effectively, making the blades increase in speed.
This bankai has several forms, achieved by arranging the blades in different patterns; each form presents a different advantage and this variety of techniques makes Senbonzakura Kageyoshi extremely versatile.
Bad News For One Punch Man Season 2
One Punch Man started airing back in 2015 and ended in December 2015. It has taken fans by storm and everyone is waiting for One Punch Man Season 2. It follows the story of Saitama who wants to become a hero for fun. He’s the strongest Hero ever existed, and that is one of the reason he is loved by everyone in Anime Fandom.
The first season for this anime left on a high, and since then for over 2 years, OPM fans were eagerly anticipating a second season to the series, but it’s been 2 years, and we’ve still had no luck. But finally we have got our hands on some information for One Punch Man season 2 and most of you are not going to like it.
One Punch Man Season 1 was animated by the legendary Madhouse Studios. And fans are waiting for Madhouse Studios to animate One Punch Man season 2, but we have got some bad news for One Punch Man Season 2.
Madhouse won’t be animating OPM Season 2, instead J.C.Staff Studios is going to animate the anime but it’s not going to be as good as Madhouse.
J.C.Staff Studios is mainly knows for romance anime and they are also responsible classics like Slayers, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and Excel Saga. One Punch Man Season 1 was well animated in every way, let’s hope that J.C.Staff Studios won’t mess up.
