The Thousand-Year Blood War – Bleach 480

Final Arc The Thousand-Year Blood War

Bleach’s Final Arc Begins! The Thousand-Year Blood War begins with a smash, bang and pop. 3rd Seat of the 12th Division, Akon reports in on the disappearances of Hollows in the Human World. Mayuri proclaims it can only be the work of “them”. New recruit Yuki Ryunosuke and Shino are told to go to Karakura Town as they are going to replace Zennosuke Kurumadani as the guardians of the area around Karakura Town.

We begin at Mayuri’s 12th Division base, as multiple number of Hollows within the Human World are killed off very quickly one by one. 3rd Seat Akon comes to report this message. The large number of Hollows dying could cause the barrier between Soul Society and the Material World to disappear.

Captain Mayuri knows clearly who is to blame for this, he mentions that these people have the capability of removing hollows from existence itself. To me this seems to be more then one person since Mayuri mentions ‘party’. Hopefully we’ll get some amazing new characters as this final arc continues.

We truly start Bleach 480 with a brand new character called Yuki Ryunosuke, he is sleeping at this point, as he wants able to go to sleep at the correct time due to the fact that he was nervous the night before causing him to lose time on sleep.

At the market, we meet a brand new character called Shino, she is very similar to Hiyori from Vizards. She has a habit of hitting Yuki as she could likes to get Yuki’s attention. Shino reminds Yuki about the mission they both have that afternoon. Yuki asks Shino if she’s scared, the reason being the Hollow appearance rate in Karakura town being high. Shino shouts at Yuki to man up by what he’s saying.

At this point, we notice a dark mysterious character at Karakura town, we can’t see him properly, but we can mention that he will play a large part within this Final Arc.

All three, Shino, Kurumadani and Yuki arrive at Karakura town to transport them to this point. Kurumadani then just goes back to Soul Society to do his job. At this point both Shino and Yuki are alone there.

Shino suggests that they should both split up, Shino goes North and Yuki to go South. Yuki admits that he is scared while Shino just wants to get on with it, she becomes serious and goes. Yuki hears a noise and notices it’s a large Hollow. The Hollow attacks and misses, Yuki starts to run away from the scene to hide.

Yuki quickly notices that Shino has already been captured, by 3 large Hollows. At this point, he is in shock, as he tells himself he has to go and save Shino. As the other Hollow appears from the back, he doesn’t notices it. He is struck by the hand of the Hollow and nearly dies.

Yuki notices that Shino’s hand and body isn’t moving, neither is her body. He then realizes that a hollow like that could do such damage by only one hit. Yuki then considers his live as he see’s all the blood in front of him. He isn’t prepared to die as he hasn’t yet saved Shino.

At this point, an attack is fired by your local super hero, Ichigo fires a very powerful shot which kills the Hollows which where there. Yuki asks who his savior is, he replies with “Ichigo Kurosaki, Shinigami Representative”. In the back, we see one suspicious character which is behind a building watching everything is that going on. This character could be the mysterious character which appeared before in this chapter.

That was one amazing chapter. This is the beginning of the End. This Final Arc, The Thousand Year Blood War, will certainly be the best Arc from this every other Bleach Arc. We’ll have a fantastic time reading Bleach 481, and I’m sure you will too!

Catchup for Bleach 480

We’ve waited almost 3 weeks now and its nearly time for Bleach 480 to be released. This post will combine most important things from the earlier chapters which you may have forgotten from the three-week wait. I have terribly missed Bleach Manga as it was absent but something that had fed that hole was Naruto Manga, some crazy things have happened there.

So if you’ve read Bleach manga, you would have remembered that Ichigo’s Fullbring had been stolen by Kugo Ginjo himself. This power was then shared out within the Xcution crew. They all had transformed into their Fullbring Form. At this point, Ichigo was stabbed by Rukia with a special sword which had a storage of captain level spiritual pressure from Zaraki, Byakuya, Renji, Rukia and more.

Ichigo was stabbed right in the heart, which meant all the powers had now transferred to him. This meant that Ichigo had instantaneously gained his Shinigami powers back. This time he had looked insanely powerful. The battle began between Ichigo and Ginjo. It all went down as both Ginjo and Ichigo had opened their Bankai.

Renji’s opponent was Jackie Tristan, she lost but still lives. Yukio faced Toshiro and lost, he still lives. Zaraki had a quick match against Giriko, he had died. Tsukishima faced Byakuya, they had an interesting match, he still lives. Moe who faced Madarame lost but still lives. Riruka challenged Rukia, she still lives and still has her Fullbring abilities. And lastly Ginjo faced Ichigo, they both had a fantastic fight, Ginjo died happy while Ichigo lived.

Tsukishima was very angry with his death as he was Ginjo’s apprentice, he looked up to Ginjo. Tsukishima tried to stab Ichigo was Riruka came in the middle to remind Tsukishima that Ginjo had died happy as it was Ichigo who gave him happiness. Injured Riruka was taken back to Urahara’s to recover until she escaped.

Ichigo quickly went to Soul Society to get Ginjo’s body back so he could have a proper burial. As seen in the image above, Ichigo meets most of the captains with the addition of Shinji, Kensei and Rose (Rojuro Otoribashi) as possible new captains. Ichigo confronts Yamamoto to ask his permission for his body to return to the real world.

After all that, you’ve finally caught up from just a few chapters back. Ichigo has really gained some balls to actually go up to Yamamoto to ask him this. Furthermore the episode will release on the 8th February, and once it’s released I’ll be telling you guys all about it. If I’ve missed anything important from this please do tell me by commenting on this post.

Soi Fon’s New Look – Bleach 479

During the latest Bleach 479 manga chapter, Soi Fon’s (Sui-Feng) appearance had somewhat changed. Her New Look seemed to be a proper development from her older look.

Currently he fringe still exists, but her hair isn’t as short as before, the sides of her hair don’t go spike to the left and right. On the left and right of her fringe, it seems to go inwards towards her cheeks. Hopefully you all like the change in her looks.

Goodbye Ginjo – Bleach 479

As we conclude this part of the arc. Ginjo was certainly a great bad guy. Starting out as a good guy and turning bad in the middle of the chapter. In my opinion Ginjo was probably one of the best evil characters in Bleach with Aizen and Jin Kariya.

Bleach 479 starts out when Urahara goes into Riruka’s room to find her missing. Urahara had already predicted that she would leave sometime without mentioning where she’s going.

As seen in the images above, she is standing on top of a railing thinking about what she’s going to do next. At this moment she thanks Ginjo for inviting her into Xcution. Thank’s Chad for believing is them. Thanks Orihime for crying for her. Thanks Ichigo for bringing her peace.

Shinji’s New Look – Bleach 479

After a long 17 Months, Ichigo trains with the Xcution to regain his powers to helps his friends and family. He regains his powers but in the form of his Fullbring powers which is then stolen by Ginjo. Ichigo kills Ginjo as he was betrayed by Xcution.

When Ichigo regains his Shinigami powers, he notices that Shinji’s power was used to help restore his own. Around a 100 years ago, Shinji was once the captain of the Fifth Division, he was then betrayed by Aizen and accidentally part of an experiment where he developed a Hollow Mask. This meant that he had to go to the Material World to hide. Shinji and the others created Vizards (Visored) which where ex Shinigami’s who have Hollow Masks.

Shinji’s material world form looks quite similar to his new look as he is still wearing a tie and the hair cut is very similar. His current hair cut has a slanted fringe, like Kensei’s New Look, Shinji’s New Look is also better since they are all back at the Soul Society. Shinji is wearing the usual Shinigami garment which all captains must wear.

Kensei’s New Look – Bleach 479

After the 17 Months skip in Bleach Anime. Most characters have a new look, here is Kensei’s New Look.

Around 100 years ago, Kensei Muguruma used to be a captain when it went all wrong and he had developed a Hollow Mask since Aizen was testing if Shinigami’s were able to survive and use the Hollow powers. Kensei and the other Vizards were saved by Urahara Kisuke as he took them to the material world to save their lives.

Kensei looks quite similar to his last form. As shown in the image above, his hair is now spiked up, he no longer wears a vest, but in fact wears the Shinigami garment. His arms and muscles look larger. It’s not too clear from the image but I think he still wears gloves to support his zanpakuto. If you guys find any changes post them below!

Ichigo appears in Soul Society – Bleach 479

Finally Bleach 479 manga released! After a long wait due to the Christmas Holidays, Bleach 479 is here and translated. Titled “Goodbye to Our Xcution” is probably the start of another amazing arc which could explain about the past of Ichigo and his family.

We start of with Captain Ukitake in his house while a report comes in. “Kurosaki Ichigo is in good health. He was victorious against Ginjo Kugo in the Material World!”, this repeated once more so Ukitake could hear it properly. Ukitake replies with “What a relief” as if he knew Ichigo was going to win.

As Ichigo calmly returns to Soul Society, he sees Renji. Renji furiously asks why Ichigo is there all of a sudden. We quickly move where all the captains are being told that Ichigo is currently present within Soul Society. All being surprised that he’s there.

As Ichigo reaches the place where Captain Yamamoto is located, he sees that all other Captains are currently present there waiting for him. “Wow. Everyone came out to greet me, Huh?”, they all seem a little angry and surprised that Ichigo is there.

As a fantastic return, Kensei, returns to the Soul Society as a Captain. Kensei was part of the Vizards (Visored). Ichigo asks “You became a captain?” Kensei replies to “Shut Up. I said come in! You didn’t come here to chat, did you?”. Yamamoto comes by and compliments Ichigo for his hard work.

Ichigo quickly gets to the point and says “I came to take back the corpse of Ginjo that Renji brought here, and bury it in the Material World.” All the Captains are shocked at what Ichigo has said. At this point, someone really special comes by, Shinji Hirako comes wearing a full captain garment. He could be now be a Captain just like Kensei.

“That guy was fucking around with your family. You can forgive someone like that?”. Ichigo quickly replying with “This isn’t a matter of forgiveness. My family and friends are back to normal. I’m Alive. And he is a mere Shinigami Representative.” Says Ichigo.

This part of the chapter ends here. Ichigo very serious about his request and Captain Yamamoto acting as if his understanding. Sadly Bleach 480 will be releasing in three weeks time, on the 8th February. Fortunately, this chapter has hyped the story up a lot. Since I love the Vizard characters, there come back is an absolute treat, Tite Kubo has listened to out praise.
