Captain Unohana's BANKAI by CheshFire Captain Unohana's BANKAI by CheshFire
Grand Minazuki


Commissioned by :iconjade-skye: ~Jade-skye He wanted to know what Unohana's bankai would look like and so did I. So this is my imagining of what it would turn into, a giant manta-ray cloud of darkness with a scary tornado that sucks up hollows. I'm sure I"m not the only one who wonders why everyone fears that smile of hers. Well this is why.

She also happens to be the best swordsman in the Soul Society, bloody sword is bloody.

and yes, I know her sword looks short, its the perspective because the tip is supposed to be pointed away from the camera.





:party: Happy New Year! :wave:

Yes! Found it!

I saw this on tenmanga.com and it was awesome! Turns out her bankai is just a really strong sword. This is an awesome pic you made though.

I love how her bankai is looking at her, it doesn't even need to pay attention to obliterate hollows.

I read Unohana's wiki, Kubo said there that she's the most powerful swordsman in all the 13.

This has gone beyond the fear I had of Zaraki the first time I saw him. I mean who knows where the limits of her strength lays now...

The woman looks out of it! I hope her bankai is something like this: sucking the life out of the living XD. She looks bloodlusted, and if anyone steps in her path (friend or foe) they meet their demise MWAHAHA!

But seriously, this pic is epic, and I hope her bankai is super powerful and unmatched when it's revealed!

I hope so too. Tite Kubo keeps hinting at how powerful she is but we never get to see it.

I know! Have you been keeping up to date with the manga? I read in one of his interviews she will have a battle. I think with what's going on in the manga now, he possibly could be setting her up for it. This is the final arc and many fans will be beyond disappointed if he decides not to go through with it.

Absolutely! Just in case you were wondering about the kind of hands you put your drawing into, here's a link to the story. The first 3 chapters are already done and I'm working on the 4th as we speak.
