[Side text: Hirako is swallowed up in an explosion...!!]
Bambietta: So what if I can’t tell up from down or left from right? // What a pathetic trick! // Too lame! // If I can’t tell which way is which... / All I need to do is blast the hell out of... / ...every direction at the same time! // That’s what my... / “The Explode” is good at!
[Side text: A rain of deadly explosions...]
Bambietta: And whose lieutenant do we have here? / Dog-boy’s? // Or the other guy who’s dead over there?
Komamura: That was careless, Lieutenant Hinamori! / This enemy’s explosions are too strong for you to neutralise with Tobiume’s explosive attacks! // And without any form of shield or armour, you cannot even defend yourself from them!
Bambietta: “Cannot even defend yourself from them”? // You make it sound like that bucket on your head... / ...would let you take the force of my explosions head-on!
Komamura: (Not take their force... // ...but redirect it! // With any explosive, there is a brief delay between the impact and the explosion itself! // With armour that can nullify the force of impact... // ...and a body that can sweep aside the blast in an instant... // ...withstanding an explosive attack becomes possible!!)
Bambietta: Well, ain’t that something! // You’re pretty good! // Looks like you realised something was wrong at the moment of impact... // ...and managed to move your head out of the way. / Not bad, doggie. / Is this what they call animal instinct?
Bambietta: That’s right... // My explosive attacks can’t be blocked. // My attacks aren’t bombs made of spirit particles... // They’re spirit particles that turn anything they make contact with... // ...into a bomb itself.
Hinamori: .................. // ...No way......
Komamura: Lieutenant Hinamori! Get behind me!!
Bambietta: How’d you like that? / I doubt you’re dead yet, but your armour will be broken at least, yeah? // Let’s have a look inside... / ...that bucket of yours!♪ // ..................Huh?
Bambietta: The hell...? // You’re not a doggie at all...!
[Text: “Human Metamorphosis”]
Komamura: So that is the name... // ...of our clan’s most secret technique...
Grandfather: ...Indeed. / We of the wolfman clan were originally cursed to dwell in the Beast Realm due to our sins in life. // Unable to accept our fate, we returned to Soul Society in this beastlike state. // But there is a way to temporarily free ourselves from the chains of our sins... / ...recovering the forms we once held before we were cursed to live as beasts, and obtaining great power in the process. // This is what we refer to as Human Metamorphosis.
Komamura: .........How does one... // ...perform this technique...?
Grandfather: You must offer up your own heart.
Grandfather: Tear your heart from your chest with your own hands, and offer it to me. // Do this, and I will grant you the power of Human Metamorphosis.
Grandfather: ...You cannot do this?
Grandfather: That may be for the best. / You have no obligation... // ...to throw your own life away for the Shinigami.
Komamura: But I do. // When I was unable to bear the burden of living in shadow... / When I abandoned my own family and fled, not caring for the shame I brought upon myself... // It was Genryuusai-dono who took me in. // That man, to whom I owe the greatest debt... / ...has had his own life cut short at the hands of these Quincy. // I have a duty... // ...to avenge this humiliation!!
Komamura: Bankai. // Kokujou Tengen Myouou...
Komamura: Dangai Joue!!!
