What a fantastic chapter! Ichigo kills Ginjo with his deadly strike which snaps Ginjo’s sword. During Ginjo’s last moments, he wonder if Ichigo and Ginjo were reversed. What different would that have made?
During last weeks chapter, Ichigo strikes him in the chest with his very powerful new sword. You can read about it here.
So during today’s Bleach 477 chapter, Ichigo and Ginjo keep fighting, even when Ginjo is in a disadvantage with the massive cut he just got from Ichigo. Both keep fighting to their full potential. As Ginjo becomes weaker, he finds out that his sword suddenly snaps, within that instant, Ginjo looses hope, he gives up and rests below on the ground.
“Ichigo… If the order we arrived was reverse, i wonder, would our positions be reversed as well?, would you be like me?, say Ichigo, if we were reversed, if we were, would we…?”, says Ginjo during his last moment. I’m pretty sure that he was going to end that sentence with, “would we be friends?”.
At this quick moment, Ichigo is attacked by Tsukishima, we saw his death, but no body was found. As Ichigo turns around, Rukia’s body, or to be exact, Riruka gets in the way. Her chest glows, as it opens, Riruka comes out. During this fast passed moment, Tsukishima strikes and see’s that he’s attacked Riruka with his real sword instead of his “Special Sword”, “This is the one that actually kills people!” she says.
Tsukishima insists on Riruka to move from her place so he can kill Ichigo. “Dont die, Ginjo!” Tsukishima shouts. Riruka replies, “Get it through your head already,Ginjo saved us. But the person who saved Ginjo is Ichigo…!”. As she says that, Tsukishima is shocked while Ichigo gives us the, I care but I don’t care look.
At the last moment, we see Tsukishima being saved by Ginjo. We see Ginjo smile and make Tsukishima happy. Ginjo takes Tsukishima under his wing, “From today onwards, you’re coming with me.”
What an amazing chapter! That was a little emotional, how Tsukishima cared for Ginjo even thought he wasn’t able to show it. It’s like the relationship between Meo and Tsukishima, Moe looks up to him, however Tsukishima doesn’t care. A past that could not be severed, and a bond that could not be saved! Great chapter deserves another great chapter! Read next week’s Bleach 478!
