Nariko Hisano (Owner)
Kohonō Nyo'ei (旧炎の影のように, lit. Old Instinct, Like a Shadow) is the manifested spirit of Nariko Hisano's Zanpakutō that is seen during the Zanpakutō Escapement arc.
Kohonō Nyo'ei has long, wavy, black hair, warm scarlet eyes, and full lips. Her most distinctive features are her extremely large breasts, which are as large as Rangiku Matsumoto's. She dresses in a revealing top that allows her ample bosom to be revealed, as well as wearing a hakama tied by a pink obi. Her easy-going and free-spirited personality makes a comparason to her carefree master, but the two seem to be quite close regardless even after she was released. She is not the slightest bit modest about her appearance, and she is not above using her considerable feminine charms to get her way. Otherwise, she is friendly, humorous in her own way, sensitive, and kind. She comes off as naive and rather clueless sometimes, and has a tendency to rush into situations without thinking, sometimes leading to embarrassing consequences.
