Leaving behind his Vice-Captain badge Takehiko returned to the Academy. With a more keen focus on his Zanpakuto spirit. He was connecting with her more and trying to bond. It was important for him to grow and develop as a Shinigami. He understood right away what was at the cost. He didn't know what sort of development he needed though. As he sat amid the outside now with his legs crossed. Meditating and reaching for a further connection. Trying to start his Bankai training but unsure how. It was distant yet but he knew the time was coming. He and her connection had been much stronger. Developing deeper and more fully than his with Akuma had been. While power no longer concerned the Kuchiki. He understood that development was key. Captain Unohana needed a potent Vice-Captain. Someone who continued developing his skills. Takehiko's time coming back to the academy had been enriching. In knowledge and developing his skills, moving his Hoho further up. His footwork had improved but now it was Zanjutsu.
The call of his spirit he felt her close to him. As though she wrapped around his frame slowly. Coiling like a serpent who silently whispered in his ears. It was time for what it was worth to begin. To begin training for something he'd put off for far too long. He knew his Uncle said to wait for a while longer. He'd done so and developed his skills even further. He could hear her whispers within his ear softly speaking. "Bankai, is that it hm? I see, interesting enough. "
Takehiko was interested in how one began the process. Growth was requiring something more from him. At one point he dreamed of being a Captain. But at this moment he understood the need for him to remain away. To not step in and step on the toes of others. His Captain's lessons and Captain Shinryu's were helpful. Providing insight on things he'd not seen prior. If it worked out he could continue training. Meditating was part of it, but what came next?
"So what should I do, how do we even begin that process of training?"
