    @ SCarred Luffy

    Possibly, nice catch.
    I was thinking the fire transferred into his body, like a logia from one piece. JB had a surprising look on his face.

    Much appreciated! I always used to like that aspect of the Zanpaktou--the way the name expanded to show the power expansion from Shikai to Bankai. But I've completely forgotten what Ryujin Jakka translates to, so maybe it means "Rapier of the...3-hour flame" or something.

    That would've been awesome--The ability to convert his body to flames. Or if his entire sword was nothing but a hand-held flame. But I doubt Justin Beiber was surprised, since I'm sure he's faced this Bankai before.

    Which means I'm also sure he has a way to counter it (maybe they glued Wonderweiss back together :-D)

    From what I remember, until this point, Gin's example strayed the most of that way, still, the meaning was appropriate:
    - Shinsō (神鎗, God Spear) ---> Kamishini no Yari (神殺鎗, God-Killing Spear), so yeah it did expand it's name and meaning, the reading have only changed.

    On the other hand, in Yamamoto's case:
    - Ryūjin Jakka (流刃若火, "Flowing Blade-like Flame") ---> Zanka no Tachi (残火の太刀, "Longsword of the Remnant Flame")... the only common thing is flame... sorry but that is simply not enough if you ask me...

    Is that the official translation?

    Because Ryuujinjakka's (流刃若火) kanji means (from left to right): Flow, blade, young (also -like), and flame.

    So it could mean Flowing Blade of Young Flames or Young flowing blade flame. ("young" works as prefix for "flame" or suffix for "blade").
