The Japanese deity Jizō (地蔵) is the protector of children, pregnant women, firemen, travellers and pilgrims. He has many forms, including Mizuko Jizō (水子地蔵) or Water-Child Jizō, the guardian of children who die prematurely due to miscarriage, abortion or any other means. It’s relatively easy to identify this deity, since he’s often carrying a baby. He’s also surrounded by toys left by a parent whose child has been cured of an illness thanks to Jizō’s intervention, or a gift to help a deceased child in the afterlife. 

Senbonzakura gives all of the zanpakuto nicknames


Zanpakuto nicknames requested by fleshdropsgorge. :)


I’ve decided that Senbonzakuro will do all of the naming. For reasons. Also we’re sticking to the embodied zanpakuto here!
