The Bankai is divided into four stages, each representing a different drama or story from Japanese culture. The first phase is known as Bushogama. This generates a black wind that injures anyone who tries to move through it. The second stage is named Zanki No Shitone. This level causes Shunsui’s wounds to manifest on his opponent. The third stage is titled Dango No Fuchi. Shunsui constructs an illusion of a deep and black pit in which he and his opponent plummet eternally, with the one who falls first dying. The fourth stage is called Itokiribasami Chizome No Nodobue. In this final stage, Shunsui conjures a massive pair of scissors capable of cutting the strands of his opponent’s life, resulting in his opponent’s death.
