Powers & Abilities



  • Shikai: Hisagi releases his Zanpakutō with the command "Reap". Kazeshini takes the form of twin kusarigama connected to one another by way of a long chain.[3] Manipulation of these chains allow for long-range attacks, entanglement of a foes weaponry or limbs, physical attacks, and even self-defence.[4]
Shikai Special Ability: Kazeshini's ability revolves around its chains.[5] He can entangle both himself and his opponent in Kazeshini's chains, and should these chains be destroyed or Hisagi damaged in any way, his spiritual power can be used to restore the damage and leave Hisagi in the condition he was in prior to being injured.[6]
  • Bankai: Fushi no Kōjyō (風死絞縄, Undying Hangman's Noose): Hisagi conjures a large black orb of chains far overhead, which reflects shadows across the surrounding area. Thick black chains extend from the orb into the ground like a tree. The chains further extend and wrap around both the necks of Hisagi and his opponent.[5]
Bankai Special Ability: Fushi no Kōjyō drains the spiritual energy of Hisagi and his opponent continuously in order to reverse any damage inflicted upon either party. It is impossible for Hisagi or his opponent to kill one another whilst Fushi no Kōjyō is active.[7]



No Pain Suppressant: Despite reversing damage Fushi no Kōjyō in no way suppresses or lessens the pain Hisagi feels when he is injured.[7]
