Default Shunsui: Story behind Katen Kyokotsu

Hi I just found this but I found it extremely interesting about how Kubo chose his zanpakuto for different people, my mate showed this to me and thought it would be cool to share

Shunsui's Katen Kyokotsu(flower heaven crazy bone):
Katen kyokotsu:花天狂骨 is one of the japanese legendary oni(ghost),similar to 狂天花骨---one of the great 3 japanese legendary demon sword, the other two is furinkazan(风林火山) and muramasa(村正).
[source ] in chinese. (I can't find any articles in english..sorry about that)
狂天花骨's theme is skeleton,has an inner spirit of flower god and she wears pink-similar to shunsui wearing pink kimono+pink haori)
The name: kyokotsu(狂骨) which is the crazy bone.. is one of the hundred demons in japan, (hyakki yako)百鬼夜行,
[SOURCE]
check out the list of legendary creatures from japan:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...res_from_Japan
kyokotsu also describe as 骨女(skeleton woman) which explains why katen kyokotsu's spirit is a woman and the reason shunsui loves to chase after womens ..
kyokotsu is the ghost of a corpse discarded in a well... hence its the demon of well/ghost in the well (井妖/井鬼)..according to the japanese story, ..she often appears at night, and the passerby have to drink the water came from the well.. if you drink, she'll dissapear but If u don't , she will dance infront of you and you'll turn beserk thus commited suicide in water well.. Just like shunsui, drink sake! And if you don't drink with him (eg: chado)..you're soo dead...*jk* XD
Also I find it interesting about kubo's quote to shunsui: If it's me, it would be a waste not to dance no matter what. ~
It does fits "kyokotsu" well^^ I've got to say, great job kubo on fitting shunsui with katen kyokotsu.

That's an interesting story, though reading it made me realise a bit more about why Ukitake told Shunsui not to use his Bankai, if it's as deadly as this seems to imply, then it could end up being rather scarily dangerous indeed (though as Marco said, it still somehow fits Shunsui's persona).

Thanks lol yeah I think it fits him well because in all of his fights he always has a still face and hardly shows emotions which is why I think he is kinda scary, but you gotta love him, he obviously has two sides to his personality which is maybe why he has dual zanpakuto, to represent his dual personality. Anyway my theory could easily be wrong lol

Highly informative; More of that please.

Katen Kyokotsu is one of my favourite Zan's though it does not belong to one of my more favourite characters.

It's great to learn more about it and on such a level too.

Ok the information I put up will be in much the same style I did for Katen Kyokotsu. I will have web links to show the relationships Kubo made between the shinigamis zanpakuto/personality and modern day practices or legends.

And just saying I got this from my mate hehe. Have a good one
