Byakuya Kuchiki imitating the awesome villain which is Loki from the series such as the Avengers. Byakuya Kuchiki, a high classes shinigami as well as a captain uses his powers to fight his opponents with his awesome Senbonzakura. An awesome image and it seems the artist has love for both of these characters, who wouldn’t.
Bleach 545 is out and it was awesome. So many questionable things have happened within this chapter that it might just make you crazy. Rukia and Renji are training with their final Squad Zero members while Byakuya is all healed up within the first member. Hiyori and the other Vizards are told to repair the unbalanced connection between Soul Society and Human World, they also receive a package from Mayuri. And finally, Shunsui meets with Ichigo’s friends telling them to prepare to part ways with him.
Shunsui is now the Captain Commander, and for him to come all this way to just see three mere humans is nothing short of suspicious. He reveals and tries to shock them by telling them that they should prepare to not see Ichigo again. Is this just a lie from Shunsui or is he actually telling the truth. We’ve known that Ukitake and Shunsui to be key characters in Soul Society, and they played an important part in many arcs, so why do I think there is something missing here.
It’s believed that both Orihime and Chad, who are Ichigo’s closest friends have received powers directly from the Hogyoku. If Shunsui can get Keigo, Tatsuki and Mizuiro to regret their powerlessness to help Ichigo then there could be a way in which they could still develop unique powers to help Ichigo, just like Orihime and Chad are. Therefor Shunsui could use the powers they have to his advantage.
The fact that Shunsui mentioned them parting ways could possibly mean that Ichigo could either die during this war. Otherwise he could join Juha Bach in the war, if this was his thought then it would mean that Shunsui has somehow found out the truth about Ichigo and his past. Shunsui is a clever guy, he wouldn’t just walk into a situation knowing nothing, he’s planning it really well, plus the fact that he came by person must mean that he either doesn’t want other people to know what he’s doing, or that he’s the only one that can perform his plan.
Another suspicious thing about this chapter was the fact that Hiyori received a package from Shinji and Mayuri. It’s understandable that Shinji would want only them to do such a thing because they’re trustworthy. The way they could repair the distortion between the Human World and Soul Society could be to either kill more hollow and to send more humans souls to Soul Society, thus balancing it out.
The more suspicious thing about this chapter would be the fact that Mayuri sent something back to the Human World. Could this point at the fact that Mayuri knows where Urahara is in the Human World and that he knows his in Hueco Mundo. The fact that Hiyori received the package could mean that she’s the only other person who could do this.
Furthermore, what is in the package which Mayuri sent, could it be some kind of human body control device which was spoiled to us, or could be a few order on how to collect something from human souls within the Human World? Could be anything. Furthermore, I notice that Hachigen had regained his arm once more.
Concerning Shutara, her techniques concern the people and how they wear their clothes. Could this point to material which best fits a person, for example material which gives the person a certain ability or power. Furthermore her creation unknown to us, however I’d like to guess that it could be the basic Shinigami cloths, Shihakusho. Otherwise she could be the creator of artificial limbs like the four she has access too. Furthermore, as Rukia is worried about Byakuya during his meeting with Shutara, I’m not as worried as he’s less of a coward than of them.
So what did you think of my thoughts? Do you agree? Do you any suggestions to the questions posed in the manga and what I didn’t cover you can comment on using the comments section.
Bleach 545 shows Rukia and Renji’s efforts to becomes even stronger as they go through the training set by Squad Zero members, now it’s Ichibei Hyosube. We also see Hiyori talking to Shinji about a certain package, which Hiyori receives. She also receives one from Mayuri. Shunsui also appears in the real world, to find Ichigo’s friend in front of him. He tells them to prepare their parting with Ichigo. We also see Byakuya being all healed.
Bleach 545 begins as Yuzu at home begins to make the food, she calls Karin and Isshin to eat their lunch. Isshin mentions that he will treat his next patient then come to eat. Karin will come once she kills the game boss she’s facing. Yuzu mentions that she’s doesn’t even stop playing for a minute. Yuzu notices that Ichigo has not yet come back from training camp.
Renji and Rukia are both training hard, they face each other and state until the time has come. The bell rings after them, they shout and Renji falls over. He mentions that what they’re doing is cold blooded. Rukia mentions that what they’re doing is nothing but staring at each other, how could he get out of breath. Renji mentions that he doesn’t like what they’re doing. Standing around and pointing their swords at each other isn’t his idea of practicing.
Rukia mentions the same, that she doesn’t like pointing her sword at friends. That being his point, however it sure is hard to breath is that place they both mention. The concentration of spirit particles there is immensely dense. The sensation of feeling like I was being crushed by something no longer exists but It still feels as if she’s moving around in water. Furthermore, there might be other ways in which the dense concentration of spirit particles might be affecting them.
Rukia gets a call, she accepts the call and tells Renji that it was Kirinji, she mentions that Byakuya has finally regained consciousness, thus he seems to be healed. Kirinji mentions that he certainly took a long both, possibly the longest anyone has done so in his waters. Kirinji asks if he’s feeling woozy. Byakuya mentions that there is no need for such concern as he still lacks the strength needed to feel woozy.
However he’s made it far for him that he will need to regain the stamina needed to feel woozy once more. Renji gets happy that he’s finally back. Renji mentions that once he’s eaten and had his blade prepared, he’ll have to go to the next stage. Which they both fear. Which is Senjumaru Shutara who’s been described as the Great Weave Guard.
Renji mentions that going through that stage was a nightmare for him, by far the worst experience of his life. Rukia mentions that it probably was, both of them were literally stripped of their dignity, just thinking about it gives her the shivers. Renji begins to think of it once again while Rukia shouts at him not to.
Shutara mentions to Rukia to take his Fundoshi off, Rukia objects to this mentioning that he thought that they were only being fitted for new Shihakushos, she should be able to do so while his Fundoshi is still on. She mentions that it’s okay, she’ll simple take his measurements after she detaches little-renji from him. Renji quickly gets naked mentioning that it’s coming off.
Renji snaps out of the recollection, Rukia mentions that from his attitudes, it seems that he’s only recalled his memory before taking his clothes off, after that it would probably be really bad. Rukia mentions that she is okay with Renji going through with it, however she looks towards Byakuya and how he’ll react.
From the back comes a loud noise in which Ichibei Hyosube appears, as the Eyebyall Monk (Eyeball Monk) who mentions that they’re just gossiping like some hens. He also mentions that when they arrived, the spirit particle density overwhelmed them to the point that they were motionless on their knees gasping for every breath. And now they’re regain some stability. He mentions that he wants to continue his training towards the inner sanctum. Rukia and Renji both shout in eagerness.
In Soul Society, Shinji mentions to Hiyori on the phone that he’s not giving her a direct command however he’s asking as politely as he can so she could do it. Hiyori mentions that she can sense him, and that he’s not doing anything what he’s saying, in fact he’s just asking.
Shinji mentions that he’s going to leave it to his hands, she’s the only one that can pull it off, he then mentions that she should be feeling super special at this point, then hangs up the phone. A delivery arrives from Soul Society. It seems that there were two people who sent her packages, one being Shinji and the other being Mayuri!
Hiyori gets excited mentioning that when life gives you lemons, you squeeze the lemons until they’re dry. She quickly gets prepared forming a team to repair the distortion between the human world and soul society. Everyone is surprised that such a team has been formed.
A few hours later, Keigo, Tatsuki and Mizuiro are walking home together. Keigo asks if they have any idea where Ichigo’s gone. Tatsuki mentions that she wouldn’t know and that he should try Karin and Yuzu. It was mentioned that he’s going to football camp, but that ended months ago. He’s obviously lying to them. Since Chad, Orihime and Ishida are also missing, there seems to be something fishy going on in Soul Society.
A man stand behind them, Keigo asks who he might be. Mizuiro mentions that he’s the captain of the 8th division, he heard it during the debacle with Aizen. Shunsui is flattered that they’d remember something without even exchanging who they are. Mizuiro asks what he’s doing there, mentioning that if a captain has travelled all this way, it must be important.
Shunsui steps forwards and looks at them directly, he then mentions that he’s there to pass an important message to his friends. It’s about Ichigo’s friends and how it related to Ichigo’s eventually parting away. This could be a grave thing, a different meaning are attached to here too. Bleach 545 ends here.
What an impressive chapter, and it surely did seem to be a long one. Furthermore it seemed like Shunsui is definitely checking all his option, could what he’s just done a way for him to recruit even more people or is he trying to tell them something. Can’t wait to see what he means during next week’s Bleach 546!
Byakuya Kuchiki and Zaraki Kenpachi have both had their ups and downs, especially when rivaling up against each other. They both seem to go up against each other most often than not as, they see each other as opponents to prove who’s the stronger out of them. Byakuya has shown that he can be very strong, but Zaraki hasn’t even touched his limits, so who do you think is stronger?
Both have been up against each other from the start, they have gone up against their own opponents in order to prove who the strongest is from them. The most significant fight which proved that they were both rivals was during their battle against Espada 0, Yammy Llargo! They were both annoyed at the fact that Yammy kept getting in their way, with a few slashes both of them destroyed and paralyzed Yammy, we saw the end of him at this point.
The incredible image above was drawn by Sideburn004, the image was inspired to her by Chapter 382. She’s done a fantastic job of drawing therefore it’s only right for you to check her out.
Bleach 519 reveals a whole lot more to how the Reiokyu works. We discover that the King’s Key is embedded within the Zero Division members bones, Ichigo is first told to go with Kirinji Tenjiro who tells Ichigo about how his healing pool works, and how he’s going to fix Rukia, Renji and Byakuya.
Bleach 519 begins as Ichigo is brought within Reiokyu. Osho tells Ichigo that he should feel proud because no simple Shinigami could come here, Osho then rephrase saying that he shouldn’t call Ichigo a simple Shinigami. Ichigo realizes that Aizen had done so much just to enter the Reiokyu.
Ichigo asks Osho if he doesn’t need a King’s Key to enter, and when did he use it to enter. Osho shows him his arm, he explains that the King’s Key is created with the power of the King of Souls, he uses it on the bones of who is part of the Zero Division, ultimately there are two ways to enter the Reiokyu, one is to let someone pass and the other is to come together with the Zero Division.
Aizen was trying to create a King’s Key, this meaning that he was trying to create them with his own reijutsu, he wanted to create the key, defeat the king and basically become God himself. Senjumaru Shutara tells Ichigo that Aizen is the personification of Evil, however the Quincies are even more wicked.
Ichigo is told to stand on a object, he’s told not to move or else he’ll die. Before something happens, one of the Zero Division members try to take Ichigo somewhere, out of nowhere Ichigo halts everything, he asks that he should get an explanation of where he’s going and if he’s going to meed the Soul King. One of the members speaks telling Ichigo that he can’t just meet the Soul King.
Kirio Hikifune slaps his comrade, telling him to explain properly. She explains that Reiokyu can be used to describe everything in this whole area, but to be exact, Ichigo is currently at the Reiokyu Omotesando, which is the entrance to the actual palace. Looking towards the sky, there is a cocoon like building, that is where the Soul King resides.
The floating things which look like trays are Zero Division Quarters, they are basically the castles of each of the members, within a tray lies a small city for each of the members, they are all entrusted with one of them. Firstly, Ichigo will be going to Kirinden (Literally Meaning Kirin Palace).
Ichigo arrives and goes to the Kirinden, there is a large hot spring,Ichigo quickly gets pissed on why he’s idling in a hot spring, Kirinji tells Ichigo that what he’s bathing in is a Hot-Spring Cure, something comes out of the water, it’s reveals that it’s Byakuya’s head, Kirinji quickly pushes it down telling him that it shouldn’t be floating.
Kirinji then pulls out Renji, he’s holding him like a red turnip, Rukia also floats but all we can see is her butt shape on top of the water. Kirinji explains that by keeping them underwater, their wounded reiatsu is getting squeezed out together with their blood, Kirinji then shows Ichigo the Blood Pond Hell Red Hot Spring.
That Blood Pond is where Byakuya will go when he’s completely empty, he throws Byakuya while saying this. Ichigo tells Kirinji that he’s risking his life by just throwing him. Kirinji explains that his blood is sucked away and is replenished in the Blood Pond Hell. By repeating this a few times, the rotten blood and reiatsu are completely sucked out and substituted with this hot spring water, this is his Healing Technique!
Kirinji asks Ichigo is he was Urahara’s disciple, Ichigo denies this. Kirinji somehow knows about Urahara and Yoruichi’s play ground, he asks if he ever used their hot spring to heal his wounds. That was something Urahara created after analyzing the water in his hot spring water. Kirinji tells Ichigo to shut up and stays in the water, he will heal and become a lot healthier than he was ever before. We find out that Kirinji Tenjiro is Sentouki (Demon of the Hot Water Spring).
We move to another place, in the cocoon within one of the windows, we see a mysterious man asking someone else if they’re awake, it’s really dark in that place. We see a man like form surrounded by a cocoon like object, he’s fronted by opening sheets, he’s finally described as the Soul King (King of Souls). The description mentions that he’s just awakened from his long sleep! Bleach 519 ends here!
What a great chapter, everything is moving at a fantastic pace, it’s all going amazingly great and we’ve finally seen the epic and fantastic Soul King! It’s going to be awesome seeing his full form. He doesn’t seem like a normal man, possibly some think which is in a whole new level. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 520!!
A recent tragedy has occurred to one of the greatest characters within Bleach. Byakuya Kuchiki is in the brink of death, he’s last hope would for someone to come and possibly help him, but as Soul Society lies in crumble, his time could be up and thus these could be he’s last moments.
He was brought to this point by the one and only As Nodt, a Stern Ritter who was easily defeated by Yamamoto’s Zanka No Tachi Bankai. After Byakuya released his Bankai, As Nodt didn’t waste time in stealing it away from Byakuya, after a few moments, both Renji and Byakuya were both shot down by the Stern Ritter. Ichigo had arrived to see how Byakuya is, he had admitted defeat to death and was prepared to give his life for the sake of Rukia and Renji being alive.
A great moment in which had to be drawn by the fantastic Zetsuai89, she’s done a fantastic job on the art work that she deserves for you to go and check out her other pieces of art!
Bleach 512 reveals how Ichigo’s determination will go as far as protecting Soul Society even thought it has nothing to do with him, the last explosion was based on Ichigo’s entrance from when he broke the barrier which another Stern Ritter had placed. Ichigo finally faces Juha Bach, it seems as though it’s all about to go down!
Bleach 512 begins as large number of soldier’s reiatsu start to diminish as they are killed at a spontaneous rate. Even the power of the Ancient Shinigami Genryusai wasn’t able to stop the Quincies’ Invasion until someone shows up. A large crack in the barrier above occurs, a man from the Research Labs tells this person that he’s relived that he’s arrived, he wanted to open it earlier but it wouldn’t work.
A Stern Ritter shows up to kill the large numbers of Shinigami’s trying to bring Ichigo to this world. Ichigo asks who this person is, the Stern Ritter reveals himself as Shaz Domino, after saying just a few words, Ichigo quickly attacks him without delay, he smash’s something into his face instantly killing him. A large flash in the sky with reiatsu appears in the sky, this was due to the Barrier breaking due to Ichigo’s intense power.
Everyone, even Juha Bach, looks towards the sky to see who this person is, he runs out after destroying the Stern Ritter inside the barrier. He notices that both Renji and Rukia are hurt but still alive. Some of the higher Stern Ritter notice that their comrades Reiatsu had vanished.
Ichigo approaches Byakuya, Byakuya asks if Renji and Rukia are still alive, Ichigo replies that they’re fine and alive, he’s happy that they’re both still alive, he then says that he won’t last much longer. Despite being one of the Captain of the Gotei 13, he wasn’t able to defeat the Stern Ritter who faced him. He let many of his soldiers die causing suffering of their subordinates and families. He says that he’s ashamed for not being able to do anything.
Byakuya then says that Ichigo is a human, not only should Ichigo not be involved in this but he shouldn’t even be there. Yet Byakuya asks him a favor even after the despicable behavior of his. At this point, Byakuya lays his eyes upon the full body of Ichigo and asks him to Protect Soul Society! Ichigo’s determined faces has no other answer but yes!
Haschwald realizes that this reiatsu is that of Ichigo, Juha Bach also agrees. Haschwald asks if they should eliminate him, Juha says No and that they’re leaving. As Juha Bach walks, a large and thin object lands right in front of Juha Bach stopping him from walking. Juha Bach notices the sword and quickly knows that it’s Ichigo Kurosaki’s sword.
Ichigo also arrives right behind the sword, he picks up the sword and looks towards Juha, he faces Juha Bach with such a blank emotion to his face that he has nothing else to do but to defeat Juha Bach as quickly as he can. Ichigo get’s ready to protect both his world, Soul Society and even Hueco Mundo. Bleach 512 ends here.
That was an awesome chapter, Ichigo’s arrival has brought even more action, yet some say that it’s too generic for Ichigo to arrive because he is not a part of Soul Society. Nevertheless it’s going to be an awesome to see Ichigo go up against the head of the Vandenreich, Juha Bach, during next week’s Bleach 513 chapter. The mysterious repetition of words could prove that the other Twin from Royd and Loyd in action.
Bleach 502 really shows what can happen when a captain goes down. From the Senbonzakura attack on Byakuya, he is nearly dead! Renji gets pissed out and starts fighting As Nodt. Rukia notices that Byakuya is nearly dead, she runs to her when she’s met by a Stern Ritter who attacks her. Zaraki appears with a butt load of dead Stern Ritter, he meets the Vandenreich Leader, he of course wants to fight him!
We start Bleach 502 as it’s continued from last weeks chapter. Byakuya is seen to fall to the floor as blood! He is nearly dead, As Nodt tells him that he cannot do anything else because he cannot win against his own Bankai with his Shikai. Renji quickly starts to attack As Nodt in his Shikai which again does no effect on him.
He tells As Nodt that a bastard like him is not worthy of using Senbonzakura! He attacks but it seems that it hasn’t done any effect on As Nodt. Rukia notices that Byakuya’s reiatsu has disappeared. She runs towards him but one of the Stern Ritter’s tells her that she should not turn her back at the enemy during a fight because then she must be underestimating him. She is attacked by her opponent.
Renji attacked with his Shikai but failed as As Nodt quickly blocked it with his own hand! As Nodt uses the power of Senbonzakura to insert all the petals in Zabimaru, it covers the whole Shikai sword when it reaches Renji. We see Byakuya stand up with his last effort, but As Nodt quickly uses Senbonzakura to direct all his attack at Byakuya! It all covers Byakuya and literally cuts at every point it can hit him. He falls to the ground.
Renji desperately calls out for As Nodt to stop this but they just keep going. Renji shouts to his fullest for As Nodt to STOP!! then goes to shout Bankai, when he’s struck by one of the Stern Ritter members. Renji is hit hard! As Nodt calls him an idiot because they could have caught another Bankai, he tells him that he thought that only captains could use the Bankai. As Nodt tells him to go home and reread the daten his majesty gave them.
Byakuya stands there, calls for Renji and Rukia. His sword cracks into a million pieces then tells them to forgive him for not protecting them. Somewhere else, the Vandenreich Leader and an Unnamed Stern Ritter notices that Byakuya Kuchiki has died. The Stern Ritter member tells the Leader that it’s dragging on as thought, the Leader tells him that their Stern Ritter’s are too permissive, it’s only their fault.
The Unnamed Member notices a great force behind them. They see Zaraki Kenpachi! With two or three or even four members of the Stern Ritter on top of him! All stabbed by his sword! He asks if they are the boss of these punks, referring to the Stern Ritter. The Leader looks at him, Bleach 502 ends here!
My reactions to this surpasses any word in any dictionary! I just can’t believe that Byakuya is dead! or is he!? Tell me what you think! It’s certainly awesome seeing Zaraki kick some Stern Ritter ass and go straight to the Leader! Zaraki is certainly going to get his ass beat by the leader! Can’t wait to see what happens in next week’s Bleach 503 chapter!
Bleach 501 continues with its epic fight between Byakuya vs As Nodt. A powerful captain versus an incredibly powerful Stern Ritter. Ichigo is still stuck in the cage even after trying to cut it with he’s sword but fails. Byakuya notices that he’s very tired and doesn’t know whats going on. Renji is told to stay back to see what kind of technique he uses. Byakuya’s Fear is questioned and used against him.
Bleach 501 starts of with Ichigo still trapped within the cage tired as he tries to break out using his power but fails at each point. He starts by telling himself that not even his Getsuga Tenshou doesn’t work against the cage! He notices that on the phone Akon is still there while Urahara’s call has been disconnected.
Ichigo starts to panic because of the inability to do nothing from him. He’s all tied up and he can’t do anything! He starts to get tired quickly and is starting to use quite a lot of power. Back in Soul Society we see Byakuya Kuchiki is still fighting with his full force, except that he’s Bankai has been stolen from him.
Byakuya tells Renji to stay back because there is no point in attacking an enemy whose power they still have no knowledge about. He tells Renji to watch his fight and understand what his ability is. Renji asks if he’s going to be fighting after he knows his power. Byakuya tells him that he doesn’t have the intelligence in being able to lure As Nodt into showing his powers.
Byakuya notices that his limbs and such are starting to halt and stop as if they are tired or something. He notices that As Nodt has some kind of thorns surrounding him, would they be containing some kind of poison or something similar. As Nodt asks Byakuya if he’s noticed yet.
He tells him that you may have thought it was poison, but its not. As Nodt tells him that it’s something that he may have lost a long time ago, he reminds him that he had become a captain and then became really strong. He had the power to completely overpower his enemies, so he forgot about it a long time ago. He reveals that this feeling is nothing other than pure Fear!
Renji is shocked that Byakuya would actually be in fear. As Nodt tells him that he’s a good captain, plus he resisted very well. An average Shinigami would’ve started screaming in fear and go mad at the first strike of his arrows. They would have died and their heart unable to resist the shock. Therefore anything would instantly turn into fear.
As Nodt tells Byakuya that even if he moves towards him, something deadly may happen. Even if it’s a small amount of movement, something suspicious is likely to occur, and thus he will start to not think straight. He tells Byakuya that he’s currently resisting this with only his willpower, it’s very surprising to As Nodt.
The fear has already captured Byakuya’s heart. Byakuya’s notices the fear and tells him that there is no fights without fear. He has overcome it every time he fights, which are usually on the verge of his death by the opponent. He has never repressed his fear, he’s always acknowledge his fear and gained strength from it. He pictures Rukia happy, within a few moments he starts to notice that her face starts to degrade and starts to dissolve in a fearful way!
Byakuya is hit once more and this time it’s a critical hit to his torso. As Nodt tells him that he’s not currently moving and that most experienced fighters tend to believe that Fear can be overcome, plus Fear with a reason is gentle, this is what As Nodt says. Anyone can stop it with experience and willpower, if you know the reason and source of fear, you can stop it. But sometimes Real Fear doesn’t have a reason, because it’s not a feeling, it’s an instinct. It has no reason and no limits.
Byakuya imagines himself as thought a horde of bugs are crawling up his body. He cannot escape his own instinct and this is now caught within As Nodt technique. They are all crawling up above his body to his face. Byakuya uses his will power quickly to escape the dream. He does this and tries to slice As Nodt, but fails as As Nodt has backed away.
As Nodt quickly takes out the metal circular plate which holds Byakuya’s Bankai, it seems as though he’s going to be using it. Rukia who is somewhere else see’s one of Byakuya’s flowers pass by her head. It’s hard to explain what has happened but it seems that As Nodt has attacked Byakuya with his attack and Byakuya starts to fall as his Bankai circulates the sky. Bleach 501 ends here!
That was a crazy episode! Even if we still don’t know who killed Kirge Opie, it seems that next week we will get back to Hueco Mundo and see who killed him! Plus as Urahara disconnected his call he may have been attacked or just had to talk to them privately. Still it was an awesome chapter! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 502 chapter! It’s going to be fantastic!
Bleach 497 explodes into action as Soul Society is quickly being destroyed by the Quincies. The Quincies have already gained their Bankai and now they play with them. Renji becomes under pressure to release his Bankai but is stopped by Byakuya. Shunsui starts a fight with one of the Sternritter, he receives a quick injury to the eye as the Quincies are lightning fast. Mayuri calls the other Captains Idiot for not listening to him.
Bleach 497 starts as the Sternritter facing Captains have quickly obtained their Bankai’s! Soi Fong is in shock as her Bankai has been taken away from her. Matsumoto stands still as she doesn’t know what to do or even know what’s just happened here. Toshiro, Renji and Komamura are surprised at what had just happened. Komamura realizes that they’ve stolen their Bankai’s. Toshiro can’t feel anything coming from his sword. He asks for his sword to say something but Hyorinmaru doesn’t respond!
Toshiro yells at Matsumoto to quickly use the Tenteikura. This informs all the other captains that they should not use their Bankai’s when fighting with the Quincies as they are likely to just steal it. Matsumoto does this and all the other captains find out! Unohana finds out that the 10th, 2nd, 6th and 7th Division Captains have had their Bankai’s lost!
Mayuri runs in to tell them that he had warn them to wait until Mayuri had finished his analysis, he then calls them idiots because they had not listened to him with such a serious case. Yamamoto steps in front of Mayuri, it’s as thought he’s all ready to go and fight with the Quincies.
During Shunsui’s fight with a Sternritter, he tells him that he is thankful, as Mayuri usually gets to a conclusion with a day or so as long as he has enough information, but as he didn’t have enough information about this stolen bankai’s and Quincy situation it’s going to be hard for them to be able to explain their abilities. Shunsui tells the Sternritter that they are not the enemies that can be beaten by a Bankai, sooner or later someone had to be sacrificed.
The Sternritter quickly approaches Shunsui and goes for a shot in the face, Shunsui moves his head and lifts his feet to push him back as well as get a hit. He does this but just after a few moments, the Quincy moves at lightning fast speed to behind Shunsui after saying “Grimaniel”. Shunsui turns his face and the Sternritter quickly shoots one of his arrows right at Shunsui’s Eye!
The Sternritter seems to have absorbed some Reishi from Soul Society, he now has wing like structure behind him. Shunsui tells him that he may act cool, but he’s nervous too because these Quincies can pull anything out. Shunsui with a smile tells the Quincy that he’s in a bad situation as he can only see with one eye.
Somewhere else, Yuki and Shino see Kajoumaru being slaughtered by one of the Quincies. The Vandenreich Leader stands behind him, the Quincy asks what he should do because this team looks like they already lost the will to fight. The Vandenreich Leader tells him that if he things they’ll be happier alive then leave them free, if they deserve to die then he should kill them. The Quincy agrees.
Angered Renji see’s what happened to Byakuya, his Bankai has just been lost. Renji Impatiently tries to bring out his Bankai but is stopped by Byakuya as they may also take his Bankai from him! Byakuya explains that they will take his Bankai if he doesn’t be careful! Renji shouts at Byakuya asking him for a way to defeat him because he’s just too powerful!
At the Research HQ, Akon is seriously worried about the Shinigami’s as there is literally an exponential number of Shinigami’s being killed at this moment. Akon asks one of the members there to link him to Ichigo Kurosaki. The member tells Akon that the Captain will not permit of this. Akon tells the member that he will take responsibility for what is currently happening here. Bleach 497 ends here!
What an incredible chapter! The way Bleach is turning out is incredible! The war is astonishing! The number of Shinigami’s dying is just incredible! Akon is worried so he calls for the help of Ichigo as he’s Bankai cannot be stolen! Bleach 498 is going to incredible! Hopefully we’ll continue with the fight of Kirge vs Ichigo next week!
