After finding out about the fate of his grandfather and Sensei, Sōken Ishida, Uryū Ishida is seen standing and unleashing an extreme amount of Reiatsu. His enemy, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, identifies the technique Uryū uses as Ransōtengai, which enables him to overcome Mayuri's poison in order to regain movement. Uryū explains that being called a genius doesn't begin to describe his skill and his need to avenge his grandfather.
Flashbacks show Uryū in his childhood, being scolded by his father, Ryūken Ishida, for going to see his grandfather. Uryū's desire to be strong and become a Quincy is revealed to stem from his desire to save the dead from Hollows. In the present, Uryū reforms his bow and releases a cyclone of Reiatsu, as Mayuri describes how Uryū may be a useful research subject after all. In another flashback, Sōken is seen entrusting Uryū with a box. As Mayuri resumes his assault on Uryū, another flashback reflects an older Uryū training alone with the box, revealing that it contains the Sanrei Glove that Uryū is presently using. He trained non-stop seven days and nights with Sanrei Glove, in order to reach what his grandfather called "the pentacle of the Quincy's powers." Sōken explains that although putting it on means gaining great power, he can never take it off. Doing so would temporarily give Uryū enormous power, but then he will lose all his Quincy powers afterward.
Back in the present, Uryū notes that he is at the limit of the Ransōtengai and that he won't be able to keep things up much longer. Since, the battle against Mayuri Kurotsuchi doesn't seem to be leaning towards Uryū's victory, he decides to step things up. After apologizing to his deceased Sensei for disobeying him, Uryū removes his Sanrei Glove. The glove disintegrates from Uryū's arm and he explodes in a tower of reiatsu, thus entering the Quincy: Letzt Stil. A bewildered Mayuri contemplates where his immense power suddenly came from, and then sees Uryū absorbing the Reishi of the buildings around him. He realizes that Uryū has gained complete dominance over Reishi, and gone beyond the limits of normal Human bodies.
Uryū reforms his bow and sends an arrow blasting towards Mayuri. Mayuri dodges, believing that he is still fast enough to dodge, but sees Uryū already above him. An arrow is seen connecting with Mayuri, slamming him to the ground and ripping off his left arm. Mayuri counters by releasing his Bankai, Konjiki Ashisogi Jizō, and explains to Uryū that Zanpakutō have two stages of release: Shikai and Bankai. Mayuri attacks with Konjiki Ashisogi Jizō, and Uryū prepares for the assault by creating a powerful spirit arrow. He releases it and the arrow is seen ripping apart the nearby buildings and speeding past the conflict area. Nemu calls for Mayuri, who is seen with a new hole in his torso from Uryū's arrow, and Konjiki Ashisogi Jizō, who has been completely split in half. Mayuri curses Uryū and reveals his last trick: he stabs himself with his Zanpakutō, turning himself into a liquid state. Mayuri comments on the battle, and escapes to recover his body. Meanwhile, Nemu helps Uryū by giving him an antidote for not killing Mayuri.
He then takes his leave, realizing his powers are gone. As Uryū makes his way to the Senzaikyū, he encounters Captain Kaname Tōsen. Not wasting his time, Tōsen apologizes, saying that he must kill Uryū for the sake of peace, and he releases his Zanpakutō, Suzumushi, against Uryū.
