Quincy Technique



Quincy: Letzt Stil (滅却師最終形態(クインシー・レツトシュティール), Kuinshī Retsutoshutīru; Japanese for "destruction sage: final form, Quincy", German for "last style", Viz Media Translation, "Letz Stile") is the last resort for a Quincy using the Sanrei Glove.


The Quincy: Letzt Stil in comparison to the Quincy: Vollständig is entirely different. The Vandenreich view the Quincy: Letzt Stil as a "relic of the past." As its very notion died out around 200 years ago due to its fragility. Kirge Opie noted that the only one who displayed a tenacity toward the ability was Soken Ishida, the man who denied the Quincy evolution and studies. Therefore the Quincy: Letzt Stil and the Quincy: Vollständig are as different as heaven and earth. Thus the Quincy: Letzt Stil is an obsolete technique.


The Quincy: Letzt Stil is a result of of taking off the Sanrei Glove, allowing a Quincy the ability to collect Reishi beyond their limit. It gives immense power for a short while, but after the surge they will lose all the Quincy powers they possess.

Uryū Ishida's Quincy: Letz StilEdit


Quincy: Letzt Stil absorbing reishi at an alarming and powerful rate.

Uryū gains a more battle-ready form of the standard Quincy attire, with the Sanrei Glove's bow separating from itself and remaining in the users hand, and what appears to be armor covering his left side and arm. This shoulder armor is a silver color, bearing the common blue Quincy cross, while the white clothing area of the outfit contains rows of parallel blue vertical lines. A blue, flame-like object resembling a quiver of pure reiryoku forms on the Uryū's right shoulder. It collects large amounts of reishi from its surroundings, in essence storing the energy for them.

Technique AbilitiesEdit

...and its owner, Captain Kurotsuchi.

In such a state, the Quincy is able to fight with extreme strength and speed, and can completely overwhelm an average Shinigami captain.

  • Complete Reishi Dominance: In this form he can absorb the surrounding structures of Soul Society, which are made up of reishi, thus he can break down reishi molecules and absorb them, collecting reishi and then transforming them into his strength.
  • Spirit Weapon Augmentation: The power of Uryū's arrows are drastically increased, Any arrows formed from this energy appear noticeably solid, at least when unfired, rather than just the standard bolts of spiritual energy. While the magnitude of power can be controlled, an average arrow has enough power to severly injure a captain-class combatant. A charged arrow, arguably at full power, was enough to cut Mayuri's Konjiki Ashisogi Jizō completely in half, and continue traveling until it pierced a huge hole into his chest. Even then, the arrow still had enough power left over to cause large-scale damage to the structures in Sereitei.
  • Immense Spiritual Power: After the Letzt Stil is released, the Quincy is engulfed in a tremendous and powerful blue aura, which is actually their reiatsu being released. Mayuri was shocked at how Uryū's Spiritual Pressure "inflated."
  • Hirenkyaku Augmentation: The Flying Screen Step technique is much faster, allowing Uryū to get a shot on Captain Kurotsuchi with relative ease. Using Hirenkyaku in conjunction with their augmented arrows, a Quincy in their Letzt Stil becomes a deadly opponent to all but the most powerful opponents/threats, as they are now at least stronger than a captain.

Drawbacks Edit

The Letzt Stil is a double-edged sword, as no Human body is capable of handling the immense power that it provides. After a short period of use, the Quincy's body will forcibly seal itself off from all spiritual power as a measure of self-preservation, effectively robbing the Quincy of their abilities. The Letzt Stil is only used as a last resort, because even though it is possible to regain Quincy powers afterward, the process is exceedingly dangerous.
