Sosuke Aizen Zanpakuto Kyoka Suigetsu Sword Replica

Sosuke Aizen Zanpakuto Kyoka Suigetsu Sword Replica
Sosuke Aizen was the captain of the 5th Division at the start of the series. He defected from the Soul Reapers at the conclusion of the Soul Society arc, fleeing to Hueco Mundo. In the past he was the lieutenant of the 5th Division under Captain Shinji Hirako, whom he replaced sometime after converting Shinji into a Vizard.

Aizen's zanpakuto is Kyoka Suigetsu (literally "mirror flower water moon"). Suigetsu is activated with the command "shatter" (kudakero). Kyoka Suigetsu's Shikai ability is Kanzen Saimin (Complete Hypnosis). It controls the five senses to the point that it can make the target misinterpret another person's form, shape, mass, feel and smell to be that of the enemy. The initiation condition for the hypnosis is to show the enemy the release of Kyoka Suigetsu. After seeing it just once, that person will completely succumb to the hypnosis. After that, every time it is released, that person will fall under the thrall of the hypnosis. The hypnosis is apparently long-lasting, seeing as the Vizards are still affected by Kyoka Suigetsu even though they were hypnotized at least 110 years ago. Since the spell only works upon seeing the ritual, those who did not see it are consequently immune to the hypnosis.

When Aizen turns off the hypnosis by force of will, the image shown melts away/shatters. Kyoka Suigetsu's Kanzen Saimin technique is absolutely flawless, even if the target is aware that they are under the hypnosis, they cannot resist its influence. Kyoka Suigetsu's hypnotic abilities make it a highly useful tool in combat, as Aizen can quickly create simple or complex illusions to deceive opponents. For example, by creating a decoy of himself, or other illusions to distract his opponents, Aizen can hide his own movements and attack with impunity. His opponent, meanwhile, will remain focused on the illusion until it's too late to react.

While the illusions Kyoka Suigetsu creates are quite powerful, those with considerable power and skill themselves may be able to note slight differences in the illusions compared to the real thing, even if they are not able to determine what, precisely, is different. As discovered through decades of observation by Gin Ichimaru, the only way to stop the hypnosis before it is invoked is by touching Kyoka Suigetsu itself.

The Sosuke Aizen Zanpakuto Kyoka Suigetsu Sword Replica features a 440 stainless steel constructed blade 27" in length, 40" Full Length Katana and wooden scabbard (Saya). The blade itself is slightly sharpened, so beware. The handle of the katana is wrapped with dark green color nylon cords, made with imitation ray skin material. The guard (tsuba) is a hexagon shape, similar to that in the anime. Overall a great gift and low-cost entry for Bleach fans and anime weapon collectors.

Izuru Kira Zanpakuto Wabisuke Sword Replica

Izuru Kira Zanpakuto Wabisuke Sword Replica
Izuru Kira is the lieutenant of the 3rd Division in Gotei 13. He was formerly a member of the 5th Division and 4th Division. Kira is a friend of Momo Hinamori and Renji Abarai from their days in the Soul Reaper academy. Though loyal to his friends, he often places his duties as a lieutenant above them. He defends his captain, Gin Ichimaru, from a grief-stricken Hinamori, and later calls himself a "monster" for raising his sword against her. Kira subsequently comes to regret helping Gin to defect from Soul Society, and develops more of a depressed and pessimistic demeanor.

Izuru Kira Zanpakuto Wabisuke Sword Replica
Kira's zanpakuto is Wabisuke ("The Apologizer", translated in the English manga as "the penitent one"). The shikai command of Wabisuke is "raise your head". When released, Wabisuke takes the form of a sword with a square hook that has the ability to double the weight of whatever it strikes. The effect is cumulative, so each following hit exponentially increases the weight of the target (something that never happens to my bank savings interest). Consequently after seven or eight blocked attacks, his opponents are unable to lift their own swords or even move their body, leaving them on the ground with their head bowed as though begging for forgiveness. At this point Wabisuke's released form, a blade bent into a squared hook, comes into play, being used to decapitate the kneeling opponent, denying them forgiveness. Wabisuke appears as a freed zanpakuto in the "Zanpakuto Unknown Tales" anime arc, as a long-haired and darkly clad emaciated man carrying a large ball and chain. He is voiced by Takahiro Sakurai in Japanese and Grant George in English.

Kuchiki Rukia Zanpakuto Sode no Shirayuki Sword Replica

Kuchiki Rukia Zanpakuto Sode no Shirayuki Sword Replica
Bleach was first conceived from Tite Kubo's desire to draw a shinigami in a kimono, which formed the basis for the design of the Soul Reapers. Due to this, Rukia was one of the first characters of the series to be created. Kubo originally thought of all Soul Reapers should use guns while only Rukia used a scythe. However, this was later changed as he created the Soul Reaper kimono. Kubo also mentioned that Rukia did not seem like a lead character, so he created Ichigo Kurosaki to be the series protagonist. Ichigo's initial design had black hair like Rukia, Kubo had to modify Ichigo's appearance to contrast with hers, giving Ichigo his orange hair and trademark scowl.

As for her name, Kubo stated that since Rukia looked like a shinigami, he wanted her name to sound like one. When deciding upon her family name he considered using "Kuchiru" (literally "to rot") because it sounded like a name a shinigami would have, and then decided to use "Kuchiki" (literally "rotten wood"). He adds that he once heard something that sounded like "Kuchiki Rukia" on Japanese TV, and liked it enough to use it as a name. Her first name was conceived as a result of Kubo hearing the Latin name for cosmos on TV, and later decided that the name really suited her since the Latin word means "light" and Kubo sees her as "a ray of light" for Ichigo.

Rukia's zanpakuto, Sode no Shirayuki (literally "Sleeved White Snow"), is released with the command "dance". In its released state the blade becomes completely white and a ribbon forms from the pommel, earning it the recognition as the most beautiful zanpakuto in Soul Society. During the anime's 13th season, Sode no Shirayuki manifests in a yukionna-like form, voiced by Mie Sonozaki.

Sode no Shirayuki utilizes ice to attack, each of its abilities being labeled as "dances" by Rukia. "First Dance, White Moon" (some no mai, tsukishiro) denotes a circular area around Rukia's target and freezes everything within the circle from the ground upwards until it reaches the sky. "The Next Dance, White Ripple" (tsugi no mai, hakuren) fires a massive wave of ice from Sode no Shirayuki's blade. "Third Dance, White Sword" (san no mai, shirafune), her third ability reserved only when her blade is broken, reforges her zanpakuto with ice particles, piercing through any object in its path and freezing anything in the vicinity. A fourth ability was used in the anime only, "White Tree" (Juhaku), in which she stabs the ground and creates a trail of ice in the direction of her intended target. The ice then freezes the target from the base up until they are completely frozen.
