Bleach 537 mind blows me as it’s revealed that Uryu Ishida has joined the Quincy Army! Yhwach (Juha Baha) reveals to him that he’s the Prince of Light, to which Katagiri was confirmed to be his mother. Masaki’s death was caused by the link breaking while both Ichigo and Grand Fisher were both there, Ichigo understands and thanks him to which he tries to go somewhere.
Bleach 537 begins as Isshin reveals to Ichigo that his mother, wasn’t suppose to die that die, Quincies have a special ability called the Blut system, which allows them to raise their abilities allowing them to flow reiatsu in their blood vessels. It’s a skill only pure-blooded Quincies possess since their birth, and the ones who don’t can obtain it with training.
Masaki was a Pure-blooded Quincy even if she had Hollow in her, in particular, her Blue Vene was exceptionally powerful, that is why the injury she got from the Hollow bite was nothing more than weird at the time. After that she never suffered Hollow wounds ever again. That day, Isshin was unable to save her, he didn’t even go save her.
At that time, he was at home and he felt both Masaki and Grand Fisher’s reiatsu, therefore without his Shinigami abilities he wasn’t able to do anything. He even knew that Masaki wasn’t at a disadvantage due to her Blut abilities, however the Grand Fisher was able to hide its reiatsu, plus the power difference between both was evident. She was suppose to be able to defeat it without getting a scratch.
However that didn’t happen, she quickly died. Ichigo is asked about Uryu, if he knows anything about his mother. He says no because he doesn’t. Isshin reveals that his the son of Katagiri Kanae who was a mixed blood. 9 Years ago, on 17th of June, she lost consciousness and died 3 months later. Ichigo asks what had happened. He mentions that Ausscheren (literally meaning Holy Selection) in which Yhwach had made a selection of Quincies.
Isshin mentions that he heard about a Quincy folklore about a sealed King, in which he would regain his heart 900 Years later, his intellect in 90 years and his powers after 9 years. To regain his powers he stole the powers from Mixed-blood Quincy whom he considered Impure and made it his own, because of that Katagiri Kanae who was already weak had died. Masaki had already lost her powers and died during that battle.
Ichigo asks how he could do such a thing, Ichigo then asks who Yhwach really is. Isshin tells him that he is the one who created Quincies, and thus all Quincies started from him. And therefore his blood blows in every Quincy! Ichigo repeats the last conversation he had with Yhwach and finds out what the meaning of what he said. He then thanks his dad for what he said, Isshin notices the determination in his eyes.
He walks out of the house when he notices Ikumi Unagiya, she gets there and gives him his Combat Pass. Ikumi notices that he’s probably not in the best of mindsets, Ichigo mentions to Isshin that he’s going. Elsewhere at the Quincy Palace, Haschwalth arrives and Yhwach asks if he’s back. He asks where the subject is, someone walks in. Yhwach welcomes him, and we see that Uryu Ishida is the person who’s just walked in!
He’s currently wearing a full Quincy collection of clothes, he’s literally looking all badass at this point. Yhwach asks him to fight together, Uryu just looks at him until Yhwach calls him his son. The call of the blood has already arrived there. Plus the chapter is called Prinz von Licht referring to Prince of Light. Bleach 537 ends here.
What a fantastic chapter, it would be awesome to see where Ichigo will go next plus it’s awesome to finally see Uryu do something, I knew something like this would eventually happen. From the very start when Ichigo met Uryu, they wanted to badly fight each other, but never happened, I guess that if finally about to happen, plus it’s been left until they’re both extremely strong which is the best point. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 537 when we see even more awesome stuff!
