    That's a nasty bankai!!! However the 8 wings in conjunction with the self proclaimed title 'Messenger of God', makes me think that there will be some 'Power of the Seraphim' type haxx

    It's actually "Bed of shame".

    should be easy to figure out what that means

    Have we not seen all this from Kubo before to know his bullshit trolling, When all is said and done I can bet Kyourayaku will have blown his load too early and this Quincy shit will have some hax that prevents him from dying from this Bankai.

    @henryuja: Shunsui just said that they can't die from the wounds inflicted by the Bankai, though, didn't he? Seems to me like it's going to be an ongoing hell where the both of them will be wishing for death (but it won't come to them). That's probably part of the point of this Bankai's ability. And because they share the same wounds and the same pain, the "Double Suicide" part of the Bankai's name truly suits it.

    It could be that the loser will die when the fight ends. But yeah, that Lille guy might do something to prevent his own defeat, making Shunsui be the one who dies. It can still happen. We'll see, though.

    Anyway, I kind of liked this chapter because of the cold feeling of Shunsui's reiatsu in Bankai and what it makes the opponent feel (melancholy and despair in a destitute place) - what's scary is the range of that reiatsu and how even the people far away from Shunsui and Lille can feel that cold reiatsu cutting into their skin. And even though we didn't get to see Ichigo fight Askin this chapter, we at least saw them and can kind of guess that they'll be fighting.

    But what happened to Grimmjow? He really lost to Askin? And did he die, or is he just out cold?

    And HBG, I especially have to agree with you about what Shunsui's Bankai can do.

    I just read the chapter.
    I kind of want to reserve judgement until the next chapter, but interesting Bakai. More subtle than I expected. With the theater motif, I'm reminded of Rose's Bankai; though technically, his was a musical. Of course, it has it's illogical/inexplicable aspects; but, eh.
    I even enjoyed the early troll of switching locales right after the Bankai reveal.
    Likable chapter.
    Yeeeaaahhh, I'm just going to assume something was lost in translation : )

    Shunsui's bankai is better than I expected it would be. Hopefully there is more to it than just 3 dans. That would be a bit underwhelming.

    I can't judge this yet, it's too early.

    With that said, I can admit that I'm tired. I'm losing interest in these Bankai's becoming more and more abstract. When they were first introduced, it was simple concepts with complex destinations. Now they're so needlessly complex and poetic from the start that the final impact is lost.

    Edit: Hopefully you've noticed from the avatar I've had for years that I'm a big Shunsui fan. So please don't take it as an attack on him as it really wasn't my intention.

    These aren't fights anymore.

    It's civil war era musket combat where both sides take turns taking shots at each other, with eventually one side dying. Maybe.

    It's Shunsui's turn, and maybe the other guy dies before the conbo finishes or maybe he doesn't. From the sound of it it's a reiatsu battle, so they can both choose how much damage is done and if either person is strong enough to survive the damage they survive it. Kinda interesting by itself, but boring as hell since its haxx 4387.

    I don't really get the bankai. Where are the wounds coming from? Is this the cliche of the angel guy hurts Shunsui and Shunsui's wounds are also inflicted on the Angel guy?
    Like that one guy in Naruto who stabs himself and then his enemy also got stabbed? Is that it?

    ^It goes both ways, in that they take each other's wounds and pain. But as Shunsui said, the Bankai's ability will make it so that no matter how much they get injured, they won't die. Like a hell where even though you want to die, you can't.

    @MxxPwr: As stated before in this thread, it's the "The Bed of Shame". I don't know if there's a difference in translation that drastic, but have you read the Mangastream translation yet?

    Kiiinnndaaa doesn't make it better, since Bed of Shame is now an internet meme. Though, I got the gist from the description. The equally wounded person is now on their deathbed, with deathbed sores. Just didn't like either translated name. Of course, the name is probably a reference to an old story, hence why it's in play format.

    Anyhoo, I'm not sure if by rule the matching wounds couldn't kill the person who delivered them, but it makes a circular sense. The wounds that Shunsui sustained last chapter obviously were non-lethal or he'd already be dead and unable to use his Bankai which gave the wounds back in kind to the person who delivered them, which means they'd be equally non-lethal to said person. Well, at least I think that's what Shunsui was trying to get across, because he had been complaining about his non-lethal wounds all last chapter. It have would been interesting to see what would've happen if X got a lethal shot in during that first act.

    I still fear for Nanao though. It would be pretty easy to get caught up in the Abyss thing (though I'd like to know how any of these cats could actually drown).
    Ichigo made a living training in magically flooded landscapes.

    Just going off of what Shunsui said, though, it would seem that neither of them will die from the wounds inflicted during the time this Bankai is active. I guess we'll see, though.

    Ichigo's training in "magically flooded areas" shouldn't count, should it? He was in his inner world. That so-called "water" was made so that Ichigo would be fine in it, although it did kind of represent all of the sadness he'd been through since it was raining in his inner world since right before he came in. But yeah, I do agree with you about Nanao. Hopefully she'll be fine.
