The War in Soul Society Continues with Bleach 495 Chapter titled “Bleeding Guitar Blues”. Rojuro Otoribashi is told about all the details including the one about Kira’s Reiatsu disappearing. He goes out to the battlefield to find himself an opponent. All the other Captains and Vice Captains also join in to fight the Quincies. Renji appears to battle a Sternritter, only to find out how powerful they are. Byakuya tells him to fight with all he’s got because the Quincies have come to kill every and each one of them!
Bleach 495 starts with Rojuro Otoribashi finding out that the Sternritter have defeated a large number of officers and Shinigami’s already! Tokakushi, Gori and Katakura as well as Vice Captain Kira’s Reiatsu has also disappeared! Rojuro goes on out to find a Quincy which will act as his opponent. He quickly finds one somewhere near him who heard him. The Quincy asks if someone had died, Rojuro replies to him that he would not tell him.
He reveals that where the reiatsu disappeared seemed to be Bazubi’s place, if he’s not dead, the moron screwed up. This Quincy’s name is NaNaNa Najahkoop! Rojuro asks him what he thinks friends are for, he tells him that he has no heart because Kira inspires Rojuro just like when Melodies flood into his head like tears. IF Kira dies, his Flying V would be sad too. NaNaNa tells him that he doesn’t understand a thing about the heart.
NaNaNa reveals to him that he doesn’t give a crap about the Flying V, and that Rojuro is going to be dead by the hands of NaNaNa in the next 5 Minutes! Rojuro tells him that he doesn’t know how powerful the heart is, as his Guitar is crying too because Kira may have died in these next few minutes. Rojuro warns NaNaNa that he’s not going to be leaving here alive!
At another point in Soul Society, another Quincy is attacking Shinigami’s as though they are just flies on a wall waiting to be attacked. The Quincy is Sternritter “F” As Nodt. The Shinigami’s attack are doing nothing as the needles which the Quincy posses can kill them immediately! At this point, some of the Shinigami’s start to retreat because they have no hope, someone else tells them to stand their ground no matter what!
Their duty is not to protect their own lives but to protect the Seireitei! The Quincy approaches this man and from nowhere a large sword hits the ground just in front of the man. The Shinigami looks up and notices Vice Captain Renji Abarai looking at him. Renji tells the man to stay away as he’ll handle this.
Somewhere else, another Sternritter “E” Bambietta Basterbine is going on a rampage with a smile on her face. She is stopped by the hands Sajin Komamura. He tells her that there’s even a little girl like her as a warrior of the Sternritter? She responds with the same thing but adding little puppy as Komamura. She then describes Soul Society really shorthanded as they would need such people as their captain.
At other places, Shuhei Hisagi faces a large Sternritter, Shunsui Kyoraku faces another Sternritter which has glasses and Soi Fon faces a third Sternritter who has a mask on. Jushiro Ukitake faces another Sternritter who has wild scruffy half. Toshiro Hitsugaya also faces a Sternritter who seems to wear a mask.
During Renji’s fight, he notices that his opponent, As Nodt is able to defend himself only using his hands because his attacks are doing nothing on him. He thinks about this and asks himself if this is only his ability or of all Quincies? Renji notices when he’s hit, a small mark is left on him, he decides to pick up the speed on his attacks to see what happens next.
Out of nowhere, another Quincy appears form above to take Renji on. Fortunately Renji was able to move away at the attack and the Quincy hits the ground. This Quincy is very quick. A man’s voice appears in the back, he tells him that there is no need to analyze him because there is no need to show mercy. The Quincies are showing no mercy, so the Shinigami’s should also show mercy! Byakuya appears and tells Renji to cut them down with his full powers! Bleach 495 ends here with an awesome beginning to their fight!
Wow, what an awesome chapter, these introduction to fights and how the Quincies are judging the Captains is wrong because NaNaNa is going to get his ass beat by Rojuro! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 496 when the war continues with all of them! Hopefully we’ll get to see the fight between Ichigo and Kirge continue! These fights are starting to get more and more epic!
