Zanka no Tachi, Higashi: Kyokujitsujin (残火の太刀 "東": 旭日刃, Longsword of the Remnant Flame, East: Rising Sun Edge; Viz "Blade of Ember, East: Rising Sun Blade") is a technique of Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto's Bankai, Zanka no Tachi.


Automatically activated upon the release of Zanka no Tachi, this technique concentrates the intense flames of the sword along the edge of the blade. It neither burns nor erupts, but anything it touches is eradicated to nothingness, which Yamamoto demonstrates by creating a huge fissure in the ground with a simple slash. Even the defensive power of the Wandenreich's Blut Vene cannot stand up against this technique.[1]
