Attacking Shunsui.

Upon receiving the orders of the Vandenreich Leader, he and the other Stern Ritter gather at the Sun Gate and travel to Seireitei in order to participate in the conquest of Soul Society.[2] Once there, he is soon confronted by Captain Shunsui Kyōraku, who has activated his Shikai.[3] Shunsui comments on their ability to steal Bankai and how the Vandenreich are not opponents that can be defeated without Bankai. He suddenly attacks Shunsui, damaging his hat. He then appears behind the captain, momentarily releasing his Quincy: Vollständig, Grimaniel, and shoots Shunsui in his eye.[1]
