What Bankai Would You Have Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

Updated November 15, 2018 63.2k views12 items

If you consider yourself a Bleach fan, you've probably thought about what kind of bankai you'd most like to wield. With so many fantastic powers to choose from, it gets hard to land on a favorite. One way to go is to think about which bankai lines up best with your personality - which, of course, is influenced by your zodiac sign. 

So, which bankai would you have based on your zodiac sign? Are you a complicated and dual-natured Gemini? In that case, Ichigo's Tensa Zangetsu, which represents both his "hollow" side and his human side, might be the perfect blade for you. Are you a Taurus who appreciates the fine arts? Maybe you should have the Kinshara Butōdan, which allows its user to create a particularly violent symphony. No matter what your sign is, there's a powerful bankai that suits you. 

Regardless of which sign you are check out the best Uryu Ishida quotes.

  • Aries (March 21 - April 19): Zanka No Tachi

    The first sign in the Zodiac cycle, Aries, is a Fire sign - and out of all the Fire signs, it most exhibits a firebrand personality. Not only would most Ariens be brave enough to wield the flame-spewing  Zanka No Tachi, Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto's bankai, it also suits their aesthetic.

    As long as the sign keeps its impulsive side in check, this bankai is ideal. 

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Kinshara Butōdan

    Taurus is a multi-faceted sign, but one thing it's known for is a deep appreciation for the arts. This makes Kinshara Butōdan, a bankai wielded by Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi, perfect for the creative Earth sign. When Kinshara Butōdan activates, two golden hands appear, as well as a group of "dancers" controlled via a conductor's baton.

    Along with art, Taureans also value practicality, making this bankai an even better choice - it isn't just used to create art, it can also be used to kick butt. 

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Tensa Zangetsu

    Ichigo's Tensa Zangetsu represents his dual nature as a human and a hollow. The third sign in the Zodiac cycle, Gemini, is also known for its dual nature. Geminis make for complicated people who can't be relied upon to act the same way from day-to-day - their moods shift with the circumstances, often so much they're barely recognizable from one day to the next.

    A bankai that represents such fluidity is ideal for the sign. 

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Kannonbiraki Benihime Aratame

    Cancers care very much about nurturing and healing, which makes finding an ideal offensive weapon for the sign a little challenging. But one bankai suits the water sign, and it's one of the most powerful bankai in the entire Bleach universe. The Kannonbiraki Benihime Aratame takes the form of an enormous and lovely woman, and she allows her user to reshape physical matter.

    This includes anything from breaking down physical structures to healing a human's wounds. A sword capable of healing is one of the most Cancer things imaginable.
