He sat in the training field, having sent most the men out. So they didn't get in the way of the training. He couldn't promise the safety of those who came here. For one reason, he didn't know the full extent of Hanako's powers. His eyes looking towards the field. It was the place where training went down. He still had work of his own to do, but he couldn't neglect it.

The Captain's duty was to make sure those who served him were trained. Especially the Vice-Captain, she was important for a multitude of reasons. He brought her here in order to give her a chance. To change things with him, to show the members he would fix it. What Shinryu did, he wasn't wearing his weighted clothing today. Deciding that wearing it here wouldn't be wise for this venture.

This was going to be interesting, they'd not gone around ever. He'd gotten a good idea of her skill set a while back. Physical training and the techniques someone used or practiced. That was what he could help them with, even though he was decently advanced in Kido spells. He didn't care for them that much, he preferred Cero. But he'd use them today to give her a balanced experience.

This was training her Shikai and her experience with it. It May not have been a single day or all in one hour, he'd do this as much as he could for her. Her evolution was a key part of the Combat Squad going forward. He'd been working on recruiting new people still. Having found locations for a possible loss in action person Honami. Though she couldn't be safer, given where she was staying.

He held his Zanpakuto inhaling, as he could feel the familiar sense of walking into a battlefield again. It came from his home, where he saw the truth time and time again. The Spartan-like training of the Crow family weeded out those that were considered by the family to be lesser.

He'd lived and made it to the leader position, stopping that from happening. But they fell none the less and this weighed on his mind. But Yoshitsune Kobayashi was who he'd become. Freeing himself from his personal trauma.

Now it was time to free his Vice-Captain from whatever weighed her down, be it physical, spiritual, or mental. He'd do his best for her, giving every aspect of himself to her development. Because someday, she would be a Captain. That was the next possible path for her.

His job was to prepare her for that future, one where if he fell she could become the next Captain. Or hold the fort until a new one was found.

The Big Woman




Hanako Yamada

Freeing Yourself  6EdIfMt


Ah, tea. There were times when Hanako speculated there must be tea and blood in equal parts in her veins. She wasn’t sure if it was a medical possibility, but since she had discovered it for her there had been rarely a day without at least a cup. A day without tea wasn’t a particularly good day in her opinion.

With a grunt Bakumusha settled down next to her, joining her on the porch of the small house. For a few moments they sat there and watched the misty forest, as they often did when Hanako visited her Inner World, while the woman tried to remember why and when she had come here. Bakumusha seemed to sense her confusion. He chuckled and then spoke in his deep voice.

“Asleep…”

Hanako looked at him.

“What?”

“Asleep...you. On desk.”

“Oh...I think I remember.”

And indeed she did. She remembered mountains of paperwork, almost completely covering her desk.

“Am glad when visit...but should wake. Now.”

Hanako blinked. For a brief moment she was disoriented, then it came to her. She was indeed still in her office, her head on the desk. She must have fallen asleep last night, while she was working through insane amounts of paperwork. She still hadn’t learned everything she had to know about the administration of a whole Division and there were backlogs...ah, better not think about it. Hanako straightened up and looked down at the desk. She had slept on a requisition order for field rations and obviously drooled on it.

‘Guess I’ll have to do that one again.’ she thought.

On her right was a stack with papers and files she had aölready worked through. It was a big stack and she was happy about it, although the stack on her left, the one she still had to go through, was visibly bigger. Well, it wasn’t glamorous work, but it had to be done. And she got better at it. Slowly but steadily.
Hana stood up and stretched. Her back and neck cracked satisfyingly. How late was it? It was already bright.

“Oh…”

Her gaze had found the clock. She was to meet Captain Kobayashi in about ten minutes. It sure was lucky that she had woken just now. Ten minutes were more than enough time for her to freshen up and reach the nearby training grounds.

Exactly nine minutes later she arrived there. She felt refreshed and well rested, the expectation of more than just a sword lesson driving away the last bits of sleepiness she maybe had still felt.

“Captain.” she greeted and bowed before him.

She'd made it on time, despite the paperwork load. Unlike previous Combat Captains, he took a bulk on himself. Just had to carry the load that the previous left behind. His frame slowly stood up, as he acknowledged her presence. "Thanks for coming, I know the work has been hard." He said knowing exactly what she was encountering at this moment. But for them to do their job well, things were required.

"We are going to train you using the Shikai, I realize you may know a bit and your Zanpakuto is often the best teacher. But experience helps sometimes, so go ahead and release it. Then attack me when you are ready, I'll show you a couple of fighting methods so you can form strategies for each." He said this softly as he moved his head left to right, inciting a cracking sound. This was a sparring session of sorts. He would save his Zanpakuto and swordsmanship for last.

Two things would be more difficult for her to handle. While he was hardly an expert at it, he could utilize Kido. But that was neither here nor there, he was going to start with his bare hands. Few people knew he could fight without using a sword. Truthfully it wasn't his comfort zone. But he didn't mind doing it for her benefit.

He didn't take a stance leaving his arms at his sides for now. He'd given her leave to release her Zanpakuto, his eyes had a calmness to them. Like he lived in this place more often than anything else. Combat and fighting released Zanpakutos, he'd seen a number of them in his life. He'd seen many of them used or otherwise imposed on people.

They were a vast majority in the minority that was the world. It didn't take him long to form a small smile on his lips. As he imagined that she didn't expect much of him from other aspects. He was a well-rounded fighter, but at the end of the day. Swordsmanship was the bread and butter of which he'd mastered.

"I'll start fighting with my hands, I'll pull my punches that way you can see and we can go over each thing. Harming you wouldn't be of benefit, since this is for experience only. I'll allow you to have the first move, on this occasion. As I've never seen your Shikai and thus do need to gauge it myself." He was honest with her, not belittling her.

The fact was she'd encounter many fights, with so many different kinds of people. While he wasn't a specialist in every field. He could show her possible responses they would have. And warn of special techniques as well, or even powers related to Zanpakutos. That was the best he could do for her as her Captain.

The Big Woman




Hanako Yamada

Freeing Yourself  6EdIfMt


Hanako smiled her crooked smile and waved her hand in a vague gesture.

"I just need to get the hang of it, that's all." Hanako said evasively. She knew Yoshitsune was working hard as well and she didn't want to complain in her first month as Lieutenant.

The Captain went ahead and explained what he wanted to do with Hanako. It was true, that Bakumusha himself was a good teacher. She visited him often and he did what he could. But explanations often fell short because of his lack of words. His ability to speak seemed to be directly connected to her ability to remember. That much he had been able to tell her. So in the moment when Hanako could remember her name, her true name, he regained enough of it, to tell her his name.
It hadn't been that long ago and training the Shikai wasn't something she could just do as she pleased. After all, one still needed permission to release a Zanpakuto inside the Seireitei.

When Yoshitsune was finished she simply nodded, to show she had understood, but said nothing. For a heartbeat her focus went inside. This was no real fight, it was still a colleague, a friend and her Captain that stood there. When her concerns washed through her mind like ripples on the surface of a pond she felt a heavy armored hand gently placed on her shoulder. A sign of support, from her partner, the part of herself that resided inside the steel.

With a slow motion she drew her Zanpakuto. When she moved it in a wide and elegant arch over her head to her right side the polished blade caught the light and for a brief moment it was as if the sword was ablaze.

Habako held the sword in her outstretched arm to her side, edge down.

"Live...Bakumusha." she said quiet, but with a determination as strong as old tree roots.

Instantly the hilt of the sword began to glow. Tendrils of light crept over the blade, grew around it. One tendril crawled over Hanako's arm, crossed her back and encompassed her left arm completely. It all went fast, very fast, and just a moment later the light faded.
Now Hanako wasn't holding a Katana anymore, but a big curved blade, almost as long as her bearer was high. It seemed to consist of tightly interwoven roots. Only the cutting edge, that curved back over the handle and closed with the pommel, was of shining steel. From the pommel, loosely wrapped around Hanako's right arm, came a chain. It went behind her back and connected with an old-style sleeve of Samurai armor, made from dark red hardwood.

"May I introduce…" said Hanako, as she grabbed the sword with both hands. Her words were no mockery, she was totally serious.

"This is my partner: Bakumusha."

After that she briefly vanished, flashstepped a short distance forward, and then immediately lunged, performing a strong, diagonal slash. It was no spectacular beginning...but Hanako didn't want to show everything right from the start. Who knew, maybe she would even be able to surprise her captain.

He waited with a great deal of patience, marking the time it took her to release. The weapon was large, about the size of the wielder. Roughly the same as a Nodachi, he'd say if he guessed the size and weapon. But this was alright, he'd do what he could with this. He'd trained against every weapon known to Shinigami kind. Even seeing some special ones here and there. A lunging attack with a weapon its size wasn't bad. But it did have some risks behind it that required evaluation.

He watched her pivot using Hoho to close the distance. Bringing her blade forward with a good slash, he slides to her side. Using his footwork which was excellent. Moving his frame with surprising quickness, he brought a foot towards her chin. He was a skilled fighter user of anything in the Martial Arts, his own fist included.

He lowered his leg having performed this all in a single instance, he didn't connect with her face or jaw. "Weapons like this one are heavier than average swords obviously. But they mean a change and strategic movement is needed. So while a slash is a good idea, it takes a while to bring it back up. But I think it was a good move if I were you I'd get used to a form in which you can transition from that into something else quickly. Perhaps use the momentum of the swing to move towards the next move. " He said explaining the issue with a weapon like this, had some technical skill she'd need to learn.

"That's about how I think a Hakuda user would respond, I think a Kido user would use Hadō 1 or maybe something else to guard themselves. Though I'm not entirely certain, as at present I don't expect you to run into someone capable of Danku, though you never know. This spell looks like a glass wall that appears in front of the user. I've seen it once or twice, sadly I can't perform that. My limit is 70s in terms of Kido I can utilize safely. " The trouble with Kido though was it had many forms and different kinds. She needed to judge her movement carefully.

"If I were to do it, I would I think go with this." He moved back hoping the demonstration of how he'd respond to a slash would help her. The idea wasn't sparring, but showing her possible counters she'd run into. He raised his hand after stepping back a bit, speaking clearly. "Bakduo 37, Tsuriboshi." A blue orb emitted itself from his palm, going forward. It shot out tendrils of rope grabbing on to surrounding sturdy objects. Trees and some of the building.

It formed a blue wall in front of him akin to a web, it was strong enough to hold three people rather effectively. "This is what I'd do against a slash using a Kido, using it to give me a moment to use something more." If she and her partner had a solution for this it was good. He'd shown two methods he would wait to see if she saw fault with his calculations and words thus far.

Hanako Yamada

Freeing Yourself  6EdIfMt


Hanako dared not to say anything about her Captain's limit of kido. She never even once made it beyond the 50ies, and most of that was totally useless. Her own limit for any stable spells was somewhere in the mid 30ies. She wasn't really too sad about it, kido being one of the subjects that never gave her too much joy. Fighting with a weapon however was a totally different story.

"I guess the fastest way would be around, wouldn't it?" Hanako yelled. It could easily be seen that she started to enjoy herself.

It was only a relatively short while ago, when she had her first sparring with Magnolia, that Hanako fully accepted that she enjoyed fighting. Not killing. She liked the sport, the challenge. Killing...she was able to, when she had to...or the emotions rose high enough. But for pure joy it was this. A weapon, an opponent, a fair challenge. There was the possibility of victory, there was the possibility of defeat, and countless more in between. It was what really made the heart pump.

Hanako stepped out with one foot to get a more stable stance. Then she raised her arm above her head and let go of the sword's hilt at the same time. Before the sword could drop she grabbed the chain only a few inches below the hilt.

She swung it horizontally above her head once and with the second round she gave the mental command: the chain suddenly extended while she swung Bakumusha around with might. It extended farther than the Tsuriboshi was away. Like a flail the sword swung around fast.

The chain would hit and be stopped by the Bakudo, but the length of chain beyond and the sword would continue towards Yoshitsune.

The move was a good one, let her exercise her power and showcase another skill her Zanpakuto had. He'd show two at once in this point, continuing with Hakuda and Kido. Watching her movement closely, he could see a bit of it through some of the pieces of his spell. It helped that his eyes were stronger than most. As the chain struck the barrier of a web-like material. He used his Flashstep, he was known for being the fastest in the Seireitei at the moment.

He appeared behind her, showcasing his tremendous speed. His steps were something that most didn't get to see. He stopped short, gently tapping his hand on her kidney. Before raising his other hand and pointing a finger outwards. "Hadō 4, Byakurai." His finger emitted a small blue light, that was shot off past her into the ground.

Tactically he imagined she was getting the idea more and more. He wasn't trying to disrespect her. Just to help her see what kind of openings and tactics people could use. "I'd say that could be your opener as it's safe, you can gauge the enemy and attack at a good distance. For someone in Hakuda, I'd say they got for the back or duck under the chain to strike. "

He commented on what he guessed they would do, taking his best-educated guess. He paused thinking about Kido now, he did Byakurai only to show her a possible outcome.

"I'd say they do that or Shakkaho or Sokatsui, one of them depending on the skill level. Or they combine the Hakuda with Hadō 11. It would depend on the person and intentions. " He had no plans to harm her, that wasn't the purpose of this drill. It was to let her see and experience what some counters looked like.

To give her an idea of possible attacks that would come. Yoshitsune didn't show her Swordsmanship, as it was subjective. And entirely depended on the person you were fighting. His style was more fluid, while others went with a much more power-based form.

He was impressed with her Shikai thus far, it was much more versatile than he thought. But this was only the beginning stage of it, he knew she could take this skill further. Develop and grow things to the next level someday in the future.

Hanako Yamada

Freeing Yourself  6EdIfMt


‘Damn, he’s fast…’

The thought raced through Hanako’s mind like lighting...and yet slower than Yoshitsune’s movement. In an instant he wasn’t behind the barrier anymore, but behind her. She felt his finger on her back.

As quickly as she could she turned around, bringing her left arm up in front of her body. But she was too slow. When she had turned around the Byakurai already had impacted behind her.

If this hadn’t been a training session this one would have hurt a lot. Hanako had to actively remind her that there was an enormous power gap between her and Yoshitsune to not get frustrated by the ease with which he evaded her attacks. But as she understood it this was the purpose of this training, to push her, maybe find some limits, maybe push them too.

Behind her Bakumusha had cut through the barrier and with a sharp yank on the chain it came flying back to her. While doing so the chain retracted again, until it was again only loosely wrapped around her right arm when she caught the hilt in her outstretched hand. She didn’t see the two small, greenish-violet buds that had formed on the side of the blade.

“I know that I am wide open when I swing Bakumusha on it’s chain. But I guess this is what I have this for.” she held up her left arm, showing off the sleeve of dark red samurai-armor, that covered her arm completely from shoulder to fingertips. It looked like it was made of wood, but Hanako knew it was as hard as her sword.

She had thought about that problem for a while and also discussed it with Bakumusha himself. One of the great advantages of his Shikai form was that the combination of size, a really sharp edge and the possibility to swing it like a flail could do a lot of damage. But at the same time the disadvantage was that she would have no sword to defend herself. And the armor could only do so much. It dawned on her that speed and Hakuda were essential here.

“Let’s continue.” she said.

With another small flash step she quickly moved to the side of the area, stepping on a low wall and launching herself in the air from there. She used enough force that the top of the wall cracked. While she rose higher she began to swing Bakumusha once again. Only this time her strategy was a different one.

She swung the sword again horizontally, extending the chain quickly and gaining momentum. She made it look like she wanted to attack Yoshitsune directly with the blade, but she didn’t. The chain was way too short and it was not by accident.
With her icy-blue aura flaring up she sent energy through the chain and concentrated it into the edge of the sword. It was the third form of Shigure Shinrin Ryu, the technique that Yoshitsune himself has taught her. She released it when Bakumusha was at the point where it could have hit, were the chain long enough, flinging away a bright blue crescent blade of energy. Immediately after Hanako changed the angle of Bakumusha’s path.

The first attack was nothing but a feint. the horizontal angle was chosen so that there would be more ground to cover on either side to doge, making the way back and upwards the more obvious choices. In the hopes of Yoshitsune falling for her trick she would follow up with a second attack, bringing Bakumusha down from directly above, the chain this time long enough to catch either way. Meanwhile she herself was up in the air, this time with a lot more distance than before.

He watched her movement, happy she understood and smiling for it. She was a quick learner and studying the movements. He needed to stay on his toes, she was getting sharper. She moved and extended her Zanpakuto, using the chain was a good idea. She could create a lot more possible moves with it. Truthfully he was reading her fine at the moment.

But with the next move, she got him pretty well, forcing him to use the second form of Shigure Shinrin Ryu. Energy began rushing towards his front side. But it was a bit late, the attack sending the weapon at him connected. He didn't have time to draw his sword entirely. So blocked with bow arms and his reiatsu. Though he did get cut and small drips of blood fell to the ground.

It was a good move, he smiled a bit nodded. "Very good, that move I couldn't do anything outside of maybe a flash step if I knew it was coming. " He praised her as he could have done more had he drawn his sword. But he'd been showing her things like this. To broaden her experience, he brought his hand to his jaw.

Both his arms had gotten cut, it stung but he was used to pain. So it made little difference to him. She'd set up a brilliant move and managed to hit him with it. Her use of the Shigure Shinrin Ryu was also excellent. Using it in a way he didn't anticipate was amazing.


"Remember what I told you, Shigure Shinrin Ryu can be changed to fit your needs. For example, the First form could be converted into a downward slash and the second into protecting a body part for blocking melee. "

He closed his hands a few times, getting a sense of the damage she inflicted. It wasn't deep, enough to make blood drip on the ground though. Had he been a second slower in the second form. She'd of taken a lot more skin off the bone.

He had a couple of ideas, that would help her in the long run. So he'd do that now, he was proud of her landing a hit on him. Despite the gap in power, she'd done well.

"How far can you extend the chain, you may be able to use that chain as a defensive tool while your weapon's gon. By having extra on you to block with." This was a suggestion, chains were useful for her to make use of every possible aspect of the Shikai. Her Zanpakuto was a fine weapon after all, so it did make sense to him.

But it was about time he got comfortable himself, he'd start fighting her as a Swordsman now. Still planning to pull his punches, to try and help her develop further. He'd sacrifice anything to help those in his Division. To make the Combat Division better.

He waited for her answer, preparing himself to show her some stuff. "I'm going to fight using my sword now, I'll still pull my blows. Because your strategies are getting sharper. Obviously given you've wounded me in the process."

He said showing the backs of his arms revealing the trickling blood. Showing the injury he sustained at that moment. He was proud of her immensely so like a father would be of their child. Even though they weren't of relation.

The Big Woman




Hanako Yamada

Freeing Yourself  6EdIfMt


A troubled look crept onto Hanako’s face. She really hadn’t expected that she would be able to actually do any damage to Yoshitsune, even if it was just a superficial scratch. Given the vastly superior spiritual pressure she had thought that she basically could throw at him whatever she wanted, without harming him. It had been the same with Magnolia. Back then Hanako herself had been on a considerably lower level than she was now and thus the difference had been even greater. And yet even then she had managed to at least scratch Magnolia’s skin when the Lieutenant had blocked a sword blow with her bare hands.

“I am really sorry. I didn’t mean to actually hurt you...I didn’t even think I could, to be honest.” Hanako said and the concern in her voice was not of someone who feared discipline from a superior, but someone who was concerned of a peer and friend.

Suddenly Hanako’s right corner of her mouth rose and a crooked grin was on her face and her eyes glittered with amusement.

“Believe me, the last thing I want is to injure my Captain...I have enough paperwork on my desk as it is.”

It was a joke that aimed at all the mundane but nonetheless vitally important administration work that was to do to run a Division. To that came all the backlog from before Yoshitsune had taken over and begun to reestablish orderly workflows. And of course Hanako knew that the Captain himself had at least as much paperwork as she had, probably even more. Both of them almost drowned in work, so much so that one couldn’t do much more than joke about it.

She thought about his suggestion of using the chain as a defense weapon. That was actually a good idea. A slight vibration in her left arm showed her that Bakumusha had listened and was equally intrigued. A downside was, and there both she and her Zanpakuto agreed, that it would make controlling the sword that much harder. Still...she could already think of one or two possible applications. One at least was almost as dangerous for her than for her opponent, but it would solve several problems at once as well.

"Sounds good, using the chain. I am not entirely sure how long it can get. A few hundret meters maybe?"

She'd better think about this later. Now there was training to continue and her Captain just had dialed it up a notch. He would fight with his sword from now on. So...given his superior skill in swordsmanship, his superior speed and spiritual pressure...it was probably a good idea to carry on keeping a distance.

Bakumusha was still lying on the ground behind Yoshitsune, where it had impacted before. That was why Hanako couldn’t see that now there were many greenish-purple flower buds all over the sword.

With another yank on the chain she pulled the sword free and aimed to let it fly by Yoshitsune close enough to maybe distract him, but at best on the edge of his reach with a sword. Immediately she jumped into the air again, pulling on the chain to change the sword's trajectory. Then she used both hands to grab the chain here and there, changing length and direction quickly to create a flurry of fast consecutive attacks from varying angles, before she would yank on the chain a final time and pull the sword back to her, grabbing it with both hands in a defensive posture.

It would be then when she’d notice the flower buds all over the sword and a whispering voice in her head, revealing a secret.
