Ichigo and friends finally arrive at Hueco Mundo to help Nel and the other Arrancar’s. The story between the soldiers from The Empire have taken over every possible area within Hueco Mundo and made it their own. They literally kill people if they are found to be weak and have to gain from them. Aizen’s earlier comrades, who still live, are still in the front line of gaining back what is already theirs.
Ichigo and the other enter the gate to Hueco Mundo. Ichigo asks Urahara, how he was able to get to his window in such perfect timing. Urahara replies that he was waiting outside of the window for the perfect timing, he then says that he’s joking. Since a lot of the story is linked to Ichigo in some way, he says that two Arrancar’s vanished, Ichigo’s fight with Ivan and an unusual accident in Soul Society would be to an alert. Urahara says to Ichigo that he should at least realize to an extent that everything is connected to the same thing. It is not revealed what tho.
They arrive in Hueco Mundo, not in silence but in a lot of noise that one of the soldiers noticed some voices where Ichigo and friends are. Another Soldier tells him that it’s his imagination and that he should forget about it since everyone in that area are just dead corpses.
Urahara hits the nail on the head and figures out that the reason why they didn’t follow-up on coming to find them is that there are dead corpses there nothing else. Orihime searches if anyone else is alive there, but doesn’t seem to find anyone who’s alive in that area.
Pesche reveals that they were able to defeat the people in Hueco Mundo was due to the Condensed Reishi which has a Blue color to it. It is able to set fire to the rocks and sand in Hueco Mundo. Since the people of Hueco Mundo weren’t able to prepare for the Condensed Reishi, they were unable to defend themselves. All they could do was to escape.
Ichigo decides to go and save the people who are located with the soldier since they are going to be killed one way or the other. Pesche says that Dondochakka is not there and that he shouldn’t go that way. Ichigo regardless goes there since it’s the only thing to do right now. Urahara asks Pesche, if Ichigo realizes that the ones he’s trying to save were enemies just a while ago. Chad tells Urahara that he does and that just the type of person he is. Orihime and Chad follow Ichigo as they want to help also.
Kirge Opie, who is the Hunting Captain Supervisor of the Iacto Arme is sitting down on his chair until some more Arrancar and Hollows come to the place and told to stand alongside the wall. Kirge Opie stands up, two mysterious people talk to discuss who the leader might be. Kirge Opie stands and tells every Arrancar and Hollow that they will die unless they kneel in front of him and lick his shoes.
A Hollow with a mask, asks if he will become their comrade right away, in no time, Kirge Opie stabs him to death. Some of the soldiers says that he’s not going to take any soldiers since they are took weak. The two mysterious people go in front of him and as they are attacked, Kirge’s spear is cut in half.
These two mysterious people reveal to them as Aizen’s Aid, Loly Aivirrne and Menoly Mallia. With no weapon, Kirge activates his Quincy Cross, which helps him to quickly injure Menoly Mallia and after a quick moment, Kirge Opie opens his sword and smashes the hilt on Loly Aivirrne’s face. Kirge tells the soldiers to beat them but don’t kill them since they had passed the test.
A circular object appears from nowhere and it destroys the soldiers which were there to capture Loly and Menoly. Kirge turn around to stop the circular object. He finds that Emilou Apacci, Cyan Sung-Sun and Franceska Mila Rose are there to protect the name of Harribel as well as to defeat Kirge Opie for killing so many Arrancar’s and Hollows. The Chapter Ends here.
That was one crazy episode. So many fantastic characters are returning and this gives me goosebumps on how awesome it’s going to be when the fights start rolling in. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 488, when Ichigo and the others will keep on discovering Hueco Mundo.
