Bleach 509 is possibly the end of Juha Bach. We see his body nearly and swiftly cut, we also find out the reason why some Shinigami’s Bankai’s are not being stolen, it’s because the limit of it has not been found yet. Yamamoto also releases Zanka No Tachi North!
Bleach 509 starts out as Juha Bach’s defense crumbles as the bones and skeletons start to raise from the ground beneath. Juha Bach asks himself what this is because he doesn’t yet know the limit of Yamamoto’s Bankai. The corpses head towards Juha Bach wanting to take him down, they respect Yamamoto as he’s the one who brought them back. He says Kaka Juumanokushi Daisoujin (Literally Meaning Grand Array of 10 Trillion Dead and Buried by Flames).
Yamamoto tells him that these corpses are those of the ones he’s slain. His blade has given them heat and called them forth. The awakened dead become his hands and feet, and chase after those who oppose him. Until they become no more than dust. Juha laughs and tells him that he laughs because he has called forth the dead, he brings disgrace upon the Shinigami.
Juha Bach tells Yamamoto not to think that he can easily be beaten just like that. As Juha goes for the attack, he’s blocked by the bones. Yamamoto tells him that he’s mouth is working just fine, but his eyes aren’t working as well, he then tells him to take a good look. He tells him to take a good look at the bones of who’s trying to defeat.
Juha Bach notices that a few of them are old Quincy’s who were with Juha, he notices the first as Zeidritz, the second and third as Argola and Hubert. Yamamoto asks him how it’s like to face his own subordinates. Juha calls him a bastard. Yamamoto backs away from Juha Bach and tells him that he’s just making some distance.
Juha tells Yamamoto that if he wants to kill him, then he should come at him and kill him. Yamamoto asks Juha if he regrets not stealing his Bankai. Yamamoto realizes that it’s not that you didn’t steal his Bankai, but rather that you weren’t able to. Yamamoto figures out that the way to steal a Bankai is to analyze it and then steal it, which didn’t work on Ichigo because he’s just achieved his Bankai recently, and there is room to evolve it.
Yamamoto didn’t even display his real strength 1000 Years ago, and thus he wasn’t able to steal it because he didn’t know the limit of it. Yamamoto tells Juha that this is the end of him and shouts loudly. Yamamoto tells Juha that he still had a human heart at the end. Juha tells Yamamoto that he shouldn’t speak like he knows him. Yamamoto tells him that he can see his tear.
Juha runs towards Yamamoto, at each point he starts to break the Quincy’s bones, all the bones of his subordinates. Yamamoto gets angry once again and finally enables and releases his Zanka No Tachi North! Yamamoto strikes his sword with a clean swipe! This cuts Juha Bach in half! His left arm has been turned into dust.
Juha Bach falls down knowing that he won’t be able to do anything else! Yamamoto’s Bankai starts to disable as the fiery Zanpakuto starts to becomes a normal sword.The environment as well as Yamamoto’s body starts to once again become normal. It starts to rain. Juha says that he wasn’t strong enough, he also says that he’s sorry and quotes his own name, as though he is someone else and not Juha Bach. Bleach 509 ends here!
What an epic ending to such a one-sided battle! That was certainly a fantastically powerful match! The respect which Yamamoto had for Juha Bach at the end shows that there could be something that we still don’t know, possibly their past! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 510! It’s going to continue with the other fights!
