In the latest episode, Komamura makes the ultimate sacrifice while the ring gong sounds off for a match against the deadly Mask De Masculine.

Sajin Komamura Chooses Not to Leave Comrades to the Wolves as Mask De Masculine Enters the Ring in TYBW Episode 17

In the episode “Heart of Wolf” we see the literal exemplar of this with Sajin Komamura, who defends his comrades to the last. His Bankai, the unbelievably badass Tengen Myo-oh Dangai Joue, is a giant devoid of its usual armor, exchanging armor, its essence of life for a state of massive power. It is Sajin’s way of sacrificing himself in battle, but what a way to go.

Meanwhile, not every fight is going so well. Mask De Masculine, one of the more flamboyant and odd Stern Ritters, is a one-man Quincy army taking down multiple Soul Reapers as he goes. As he is confronted by Kensei Muguruma, the episode closes, but this is only the beginning of the battle for Mask. He may be a worthy opponent, but his worst nightmare, Renji, has yet to appear. Meanwhile, in the post-credits scene, we see Ichigo channeling enormous power, suggesting he could be back soon.
