Bleach 593 gets exciting as Mayuri’s drugs that he somehow gave to Toshiro has affected him in a way that every time he kills Mayuri, he will return to a point of where Mayuri repeats himself about his drugs. Mayuri gave him a drug to go back to his past memory somehow to which whenever Mayuri is killed he goes back, it’s as though if doesn’t kill him he can live on. Continue reading

Mayuri Kurotsuchi is probably one of my many favourite characters from Bleach, this is why he receives this week’s Cosplay Monday. Mayuri is one hell of a captain, with his amazing techniques and hidden talents, he could probably go up against most enemies and win. Plus his awesome Bankai of a child is just epic, I can’t say any more to how amazing Mayuri really is. All the experiments he does, plus being the Urahara’s subordinate at one point, it was truly epic. This cosplay seems to concentrate on his earlier days before he had the special head gear. Continue reading
Bleach 552 reveals the awesome plan which Urahara has just come up with, we see the awesome Cang Du take out Matsumoto to which Toshiro knows that they’re right at the end of their life, we also see that Urahara has indeed reached Mayuri and has showed him his plan of using pills to insert a little amount of Hollow powers into the captains to give them the ability to regain their Bankai’s back. Continue reading
Bleach 550 explains that the Quincy’s they’re facing are more than what they seem.

Furthermore, Mayuri’s opponent, Askin Nakk Le Vaar understands that he’s also strong. BG9 shows off that he’s not just a mere machine but in fact something that will kill Sui Feng if she doesn’t kill him first. Continue reading
Bleach 547 returns with a fantastic number of battles! There is a colour page by which Ichigo is fully ready to face the enemy, with his two swords he seems awesome. Seireitei disappears while the Vandenreich “Invisible Empire” appears from the shadows. Mayuri appears in a ridiculous outfit to fight the enemy in the labs, as well as for Toshiro and Hitsugaya, they’ll have to work together.
Bleach 547 begins with a few coloured pages to which Ichigo looks at both swords, he holds them and gets up, as he gets up we see a magnificent image the Stern Ritters on the left, as well as Uryu. And the Captains and Vice Captains on the right, to which Ichigo holds both swords and his body seems to be covered in a black clad, this page mentions that the Bloody Battle will begin.
Everyone was become shocked as Seireitei disappeared from their eyes and the grand Vandenreich view was scene. Everyone is unhappy about this happening. We see a number of people as well as Shinji looking towards this as the whole of Seireitei disappears right in front of their eyes.
Shunsui mentions that he expected for them to attack suddenly again all the preparation and tricks they had will have gone to waste. He didn’t expect them to ruin their advantage like this. Ukitake’s Vice Captains shout towards him, they open the door to expect Ukitake sat down in front of what seems to be a large rose like object, he could be doing something very strange here.
Hiyosu is seen freaking out, while Akon tries to get him to calm down he mentions that Seireitei has disappeared, while it’s impossible something like this cannot happen. Akon mentions that what they built is correct and the numbers are correct, Hiyosu cannot believe that it’s all disappeared. A wave of shadows appears to which everything they had such as the equipment seems to be all gone. Hiyosu asks what is going on there.
Juha Bach briefly describes that after losing the war a 1000 years ago, they had no place to go, therefore they escaped from the human world into Seireitei itself, the place they have the least security. Once there they used reishi to create space in the shadows. This is what they refer to the Vandenreich or Invisible Empire! Askin Nakk Le Vaar appears and explains that their plan was a success, plus they can find a lot of reishi in Soul Society and thus this was the source of their power.
For 1000 years, they quietly stored up power in the shadows. We see Jugram Haschwalth mentions both last and this time, they didn’t invade Seireitei using the Shakonmaku, instead they were already in the Shakonmaku. Shunsui welcomes them, then says thanks for telling him all the previous information, they got to the captain room quite quickly. Haschwalth introduced himself as the adviser of the emperor of Vandenreich, the Stern Ritter Grand Master!
Shunsui introduces himself as the Captain Commander of the Gotei 13, as well as captain of the 1st Division. He asks if he already knew if he was the Captain Commander, which Haschwalth mentions that he knew. He came there for this reason. Shunsui mentions that after waiting 1000 years, aren’t they going to enjoy the battle slowly? Jugram mentions that Juha Bach loves peace and that he prefers fights to be short, thus he mentions to instantly exterminate the whole enemy army!
At the science labs, Askin Nakk Le Vaar is asked how he got there, he just mentions if they even listened to his explanation, then mention that they only seems to be pretending to be smart. He mentions that he didn’t come from anywhere, because he was there from the start. A space out of nowhere appears to which someone mentions that they were inside the shadows, two worlds existed in the same place at the same time.
He mentions that it was irrational building a world inside the shadows, but he doesn’t dislike irrational things. We see that it’s Mayuri wearing an outfit which makes him look really bad! He mentions that from the information gathered in the last battle, he quickly understood that they came from the shadows, this is why he changed the inside of his laboratory, so that it wouldn’t have one single shadow. Mayuri mentions that in regards for them to be smart or not, they’ll have to just verify and go home.
At a battlefield we see a number of Shinigami personnel going towards one Stern Ritter, by which he uses his fire to burn them, however he notices that his fire has been frozen, we then see Toshiro and Rangiku quickly mention that it might not matter where they are, but his flames won’t do anything to him. Bazz-B looks at them as though they’re weak. Bleach 547 ends here.
It’s great to see Bleach back, and it’s finally awesome to see that the battles have already began, plus I can’t wait for Ichigo to return and show us how truly amazing and powerful he’s gotten as it seems like he’ll be able to trash anything and everything, can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 548, when the battles continue!
Mayuri Kurotsuchi is probably one of my favourite characters within Bleach, due to the fact that he’s such a badass that does whatever he wants to do. He is also a very mysterious character whose meaning and understanding would probably go beyond anyone. Furthermore his Bankai of a baby makes him such an awesome irony to how a strong-willed Captain has a baby for a Bankai.
The awesome image above was done by Marzie-sama who had entered this image of Mayuri in the Anikon Russia 2013 but unfortunately didn’t win. I obviously like the image, that’s why I’m featuring it. If you like this work, I suggest you go and check out her other work.
