Bleach 558 shows that his grandfather is happy about what he’s done, he’s made him happy. After Bambietta gets hit by her own attack move, she loses consciousness and falls somewhere else by which her friends arrive to help, or does it seem like they’re going to help. Komamura begins to turn back into his old self, losing control of the bankai as well as return of his fur when Iba shows up and tells him that he’s going to help him get his revenge on Juha Bach for Yamamoto’s death.
Bleach 557 gets awesome, after Komamura’s epic Bankai gets released, we see a whole new side from him. It seems that after he took his heart out, he was able to transform into his Human form and show us that he’s ready to put his life on the line and destroy anything that steps on his way. He also seems to be healing himself quickly after his armor breaks. We see Bambietta back down a little after seeing that her bombs do no damage to him.
Bleach 556 gets awesome! We see Komamura hide something awesome, after he’s armored is destroyed by Bambietta’s Explosive Bombs, we see something awesome, it’s as though he’s trained and learned to transforms into a human form. He’s learned to do a Human Metamorphosis Technique to which his clan could also use. It allows for them to gain an immense amount of power from it. When he activates his Bankai, Kokujou Tengen Myouou, Dangai Joue, we see a whole different Bankai!
Bleach 554 gives the Stern Ritters and Quincy’s a great advantage once more. It’s mentioned that after the stolen Bankai’s are returned to their respective owners. The Stern Ritters gain the ability to open up their Quincy Vollstandig (Literally Meaning Complete), which from what we saw with Kirge Opie, it’s something that can’t be easily defeated. Both Komamura and Shinji face Bambietta to which she enables her Quincy Vollstandig, at the same time Juha Bach had predicted this to which he see’s a number of Vollstandig get enabled!

Bleach 539 begins a long and strenuous adventure to which the captains are training as hard as they can in order to compensate for their lost Bankai’s. Akon arrives to notice that Mayuri is doing strange experiments on something unknown. Soi Fon is training by herself while Ichigo reaches another strange thing. At the same time, Komamura tells his Grandfather that he wants to learn the secrets of his family.
Bleach 539 begins as Akon arrives with a head wound in their research centre. He asks where Mayuri is, someone mentions that he’s been in his room with Nemu ever since the Quincy attack. Akon gets a little wary of what he could be doing. He notices strange things on the ceiling and of the corner that nothing is happening. He goes towards a computer and does a few things.
The captain has been in his room for more than 24 hours but the surveillance bugs have been switched off, which has never been done before. Akon mentions that it could be because Mayuri could be doing some kind of experiment that he doesn’t want anyone else to see. In this case, he mentions that he will need to confirm.
He mentions that he’s setup a camera in his room to which he may have needed for something. He turns it on and it starts to show something. They can see their shadows, Mayuri and Nemu stand above a table in which it seems that they are dealing with a body of something, possibly a Quincy. The words Kanane, and Akon asks if they can move. Akon wonders what that is and what Mayuri is making.
At the Omaeda house, we see Mareyo Omaeda who is the second daughter in which she asks Marechiyo to play ball with her, he mentions for her to be quite and that he’s doing some work. She begins to cry when Marechiyo tells her not to cry since he’s busy, a younger brother appears in which he mentions that they can do stuff together, he can tell her a story from a book of his.
Saburo’s books are mentioned to be icky by Mareyo, Saburo laughs that she can’t even understand the deepness of his literature. Mareyo mentions that she’ll just go for a walk to get rid of Saburo. Marechiyo stares up at the sky wondering how Soi Fon didn’t let him go with her. We go to Soi Fon where she’s training on the tip of a mountain in which he uses trains her hands.
We move onto Sajin, where the older and bigger dog asks what Komamura’s business is. He gets on his knees and tells him that he’s come to inherit the family secrets from his great grandfather. His grandfather gets pissed off by what he’s just said, he laughs greatly, he then tells him not to make him laugh. He follows up this by mentioning that he was ashamed of their appearance and therefore wore the hood and armor to pretend to be a human.
And now he comes lowering his head, while asking him to teach him. Komamura mentions that he no longer wears a hood nor does he wear any armor. The world has changed in these decades and he feels that the world has changed so that their family can live among them without hiding their families.
This world is on the verge of a crisis. The grandfather quickly stops him, telling him to hold his tongue. He’s getting it wrong, the world will fall into ruin, the world’s bearer will simply change he mentions. They won’t change no matter who holds the world. All they can do is lay low. Komamura mentions that he knows that they can change that, for themselves as well as their children and grandchildren.
However the grandfather mentions that nothing will change as what ever happens to this world is none of their concerns, Komamura shouts his name when he quickly gets up! He’s told that he is telling him not to disturb their peace, if he cannot then he will have to crush him. Komamura mentions that he can do whatever he wants.
In Nimaiya’s palace, they go down a tube where Ichigo brings his Asauchi, Ichigo bangs his face on something where he gets a little hurt. Nimaiya told him not to go face first. He starts to gets pissed off when Nimaiya shows him something, It’s a water type thing which is much needed. He mentions that the Phoenix Palace must be located at a high place for this reason.
He goes on to mention that for a Bankai to be restored, there needs to be a lot of water, this is why. He goes on to mention that Ichigo needs to prepare himself as from this point on, Ichigo will have to say goodbye to his Zanpakuto Zangetsu! Bleach 539 ends here.
A great chapter, hopefully we’ll carry on with Ichigo’s training during next week’s Bleach 540, plus seeing Komamura’s and possibly Hisagi’s Bankai in action in a few chapters after that. It’s getting better and better! Can’t wait for the awesome and amazing chapters, bring ‘em on Kubo!
Bleach 538 has another amazing chapter as Ichigo is once again transported to Nimaiya Oetsu’s palace where he’s faced by a number of Asauchi’s. This time it’s different where they are all kneeling to him. Ichigo approaches one and finds that it’s Zangetsu with a mask! We see Hitsugaya go to train in basic sword fighting. Kensei, Hisagi and Mashiro are together practicing. Sajin enters a large cave to find a humongous dog where he may ask for training.
Bleach 538 begins with Isshin asking him where he’s going after getting a plan. We can see in his face that he doesn’t have a plan to what he needs to do. Nimaiya’s helper arrives and tells Ichigo that it’s time to go back. They quickly transport out of there. She reveals that Nimaiya had planned to send you back for one night and get him back after he’s changed, otherwise it would be useless.
Nimaiya appears, he tells him that he’s got a nice look there. He’s sure that he’ll be able to do it now. Ichigo gets up and as Nimaiya goes to say his next few words he notices something strange. All of the Asauchi’s don’t seem to be attacking him, they have all kneeled on the ground as though he’s their master. Nimaiya is surprised at this, Ichigo looks back and notices that he’s already picked one.
He holds one of them, and out of nowhere, their black skin starts to fade away, it starts to turn into what we know as Zangetsu! The hair is similar to Ichigo’s, when we look at its face, it has a Hollow Mask on! Nimaiya is impressed and tells him to come there, he decides to forge it again for him.
We move onto Soul Society where a number of Shinigami’s are training. They’re being trained on sword fighting, they’re told that they won’t kill any Quincies with bad stances. Some speak of how Hitsugaya has lost his Bankai and wonder about the whole division as they won’t have much power.
Hitsugaya appears there and quickly asks the trainer there to help and train him there. He mentions that he’s Bankai was stolen and that now his only choice is to fight as a simple swordsman. He wants to begins from the basics. They all seem to have continued training.
Hitsugaya thinks to himself that since fighting Aizen, he trained his Bankai to get it into a Real Bankai! However since it was stolen, there is no need to be upset about it, he must now look forward and try to train to become better. Somewhere else, Shuhei and Kensei are talking. Shuhei asks why he’s been taken there. Kensei tells him to use his Bankai, he mentions that this time his Bankai wasn’t stolen, but next time it might happen therefore they need more people that can do a Bankai.
Mashiro Kuna appears from the sky, she’s told to use her Hollow powers, Kensei tells Shusei that she’s strong when she’s a Hollow and that he’ll have to use his Bankai if he doesn’t want to die. Shusei quickly tries to stop it but Kuna punches him in the stomach. She also mentions that he shouldn’t mention that Super Vice Captain, Kensei reveals that he should know that he’s not as gentle as Kaname Tosen was.
This strikes a nerve on Shusei s he mentions that he’s always been looking up to him, however he should not badmouth Kaname Tosen. Kensei may have found something he can use in order to make him angry. Komamura is gone into a cave while his Vice Captain is training. A voice mentions who has arrived, Komamura mentions that it’s been a long time Oojiji. There is a large dog there, he mentions that he’s got the guts to come back there. Bleach 538 ends here.
What an awesome chapter, all the current Captains are training, even those who have lost their Bankai’s, they are does as much as they can in order to do their best to get stronger. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 539, this could get even more awesome!
Bleach 515 increases the intensity of the situation, even after they receive help from the medical team, they all mourn for the death of Yamamoto, they seem as though they no longer have any hope in them. Ichigo is seen to have shoulder what he heard from Juha Bach. We also find out that both Byakuya and Zaraki are alive, but could no longer be fit to fight.
Bleach 515 starts as Juha Bach and Haschwald as well as many of the other Quincy’s have all gone back to the Vandenreich HQ. Soul Society in an emergency in which they all try and get all the wounded back. Isane talks to Unohana that all finally all the wounded are being taken back. During the battle not even one person was carried here for help.
Isane asks Unohana if it was really right for them to stay in the 4th Division building during the battle, if they had gone to the battlefield, they could have had saved more people. Unohana quickly stops Isane and tells her that she must not talk based on her feelings, it’s easy to get anxious and leave this place but she must be strong and control what she does even in this situation.
Unohana notices that Isane cries, she tells her that there is no need because no matter what happens, they must not leave the building, that’s the last order in which Yamamoto had given Unohana gave to them.
Ichigo has returned and had been given some basic medical treatment. Ichigo is given a paper in which it states that Urahara had sent a message stating that Orihime and Chad are all safe. They were unable to get a vocal message but when they do, they’ll do their best to confirm it with Ichigo.
Madarame gets angry and tells them to quickly let him go, he shouts captain, as he has concerns with Zaraki. He keeps on going until someone get him in restrains. Ichigo notices him, Yamada notices Ichigo and tells him to come with him so he can heal him, Yamada tells Ichigo that he needs to be healed because anyone looking at his wounds would understand that they’re bad.
Shinji appears behind Ichigo, he tells Ichigo that he’s finished operating on Rukia and Renji. This time it was too late to heal with just reiatsu, so he had to operate them to suture the Reishi where it was necessary. Currently they’re out of danger, they’re conditions are stable, Ichigo tries to go when Rukia calls Ichigo’s name.
Ichigo notices Rukia and asks if she’s okay, she says that Shinji just mentioned that her condition is stable, she calls Ichigo a fool for not listening, Ichigo then tells her that she sounds healthy even in her condition. Rukia thanks Ichigo for coming to protect Soul Society. He mentions that or course he would come, but he couldn’t do anything this time.
Shinji corrects him by telling him that he chased away the enemy boss, Juha Bach. He hadn’t come, they would have gotten it worse, he should be more proud of himself. Ichigo notices what Shinji said. Someone calls for Ichigo, saying that Captain Kurotsuchi is looking for him, for the Zanpakutou thing.
Ichigo goes, Shinji notices that he’s always busy, he didn’t even heal his wounds, always thinking about others. Rukia asks why Ichigo had such a sorrowful face. He says that he seemed to have a hard time too, his Zanpakutou was broken in half and in the end he wasn’t even able to save anyone. He must be tired. Rukia is surprised.
Rukia feels as thought he might be shouldering something much more serious. At the first division HQ, the captains are surrounding Yamamoto’s sword, Zanka No Tachi, the say that the couldn’t find his body, it might have been destroyed by Juha Bach, which it was. The captains look down in grief for Yamamoto.
A reporter arrives stating that Byakuya and Zaraki have both escaped death! However it’s difficult to think that they’ll be able to resume their duties as Captains, also there is a chance that they might not even wake up. Soi Fon is angered, telling him to stay back.
She says that she doesn’t want to hear such a thing because Yamamoto has just passed away and they hear more about death, she’s angered by this fact and keeps on going until Kensei tells her to stop it, Soi Fon tells Kensei that he’s so calm and collected just because he disliked Yamamoto, he says How dare she say such a thing.
Komamura screams and tells Soi Fon to shut up. He mentions that she’s not the only one who wants to scream out aloud, she’s scared by this, everyone looks down, Shunsui appears and tells them to stop all this fighting. He reminds them that if Yamamoto was here, they would have all got a knuckle from Yamamoto. He would be shameful of them.
He mentions that the 13 Divisions weren’t created to mourn the dead or to feel sorry for a destroyed Soul Society, it was originally created to exist and protect Soul Society. He mentions that they should all look forward since they are all the 13 Division. Bleach 515 ends here.
A great and awesome chapter, Shunsui has tried to build up their morale, will this work and when will Soul Society strike back the Vandenreich? It’s going to be epic finding out all the awesome information, also what is Urahara hiding from Ichigo in Hueco Mundo? Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 516! It’s going to be awesome.
Yamamoto vs Juha Bach (Vandenreich Leader) is finally going to happen! We set our eyes on an enraged Captain Commander where he finally burns Driscoll and goes right to Juha Bach where we notice that Zaraki Kenpachi has been easily beaten by Juha Bach! Yamamoto and Juha Bach get ready to face each other!
Bleach 505 starts off as Driscoll Berci’s body turns into ash as the bones and skin all burn! He says that since he wasn’t able to express his condolences he can do them now as well as release his Bankai from this world to the next. He says he’s good byes.
Yamamoto stands with most of his Shinigami cloths burnt and he looks scary. A piece of text states “The Guardian of Hell, that Turns everything into Ashes”. Hisagi just watches as Yamamoto get’s pissed for what had just happened. He’s shocked at the crazy power Yamamoto has.
Yamamoto walks by Hisagi and says not to worry because he’s now going to kill the Rebel Army with his own hands. Yamamoto jumps off and a large crater is formed as the jumps has such an intense force behind it. Every other captain notices the intense Reiatsu in the air and that it’s a sign that they should fight harder on defeating the Quincy Army.
Sui Fong notices the Spiritual Force, Omaeda asks her whats going on, she tells him that the Captain Commander is enraged! Momo tells Shinji that she’s never sensed Yamamoto so angry, he tells her that he also has never felt such force from him. He also says that he’s never seen the Captain Commander fight at the front before. He tells her to hurry otherwise he will have all the fun!
Toshiro and Matsumoto also feel that Reiatsu, Toshiro Hitsugaya states that as a Captain and Vice-Captain they can’t let them defeat them so easily, Matsumoto agrees. Komamura also gets up after feelings Yamamoto’s presence. He tells all the soldiers of the Gotei to stand up because it’s shameful.
They all get up, Bambietta Basterbine wonders what had just happened because Komamura what right about to die just a while ago. Shunsui also feels the echoing in the reiatsu of Yamamoto all over Seireitei and tells himself that he’s getting Goosebumps. He also tells himself that it feels like he’s getting scolded.
Shunsui wonders what Yamamoto would say at such a situation, he thinks of Yamamoto saying something like how dare he have such a hard time defeating such an enemy, he doesn’t remember raising such a coward. Shunsui powers up at the same time and quickly goes for an attack!
We now see Juha Bach (Vandenreich Leader) holding up a defeated Zaraki Kenpachi! Zaraki has been defeated with such ease. Zaraki seems to have many injuries while Juha Bach is still clean. Juha Bach states that he was one of their Special Potential, he now seems to be very weak, says Juha Bach, he also says that he had overestimated him.
At this point Yamamoto arrives with such force that it melts everything around him, unfortunately Juha Bach hasn’t reacted to it, he seems like he’s not scared. Yamamoto starts to walk towards Juha when the ground itself starts to change at every step! Yamamoto tells Juha that it’s been over 1000 years!
Yamamoto keeps on walking when Juha Bach turns around and looks right at Yamamoto, he smiles as though he was waiting for Yamamoto to arrive and thus he could try to beat Yamamoto to defeat Soul Society. Yamamoto tells Juha Bach that he had arrived there to annihilate him! Bleach 505 ends here.
So we finally find out that Zaraki has been easily defeated! While Yamamoto is angered by all the things the Quincy’s have done, Juha being a lot more powerful than Zaraki means that it’s going to be hard for Yamamoto to defeat him. Can’t wait for Bleach 506 because it’s going to be fantastic to see Juha Bach fight Yamamoto! Or even seeing to see who killed Kirge Opie.
A fantastic Bleach 496 Chapter begins as Toshiro, Byakuya, Komamura and Soi Fong reach out to the enemy to fight them with their Bankai’s! Byakuya states that this is the only way for them to fight the Sternritter because they seem really powerful! The Captains learn that the Sternritter have the ability to seal their Bankai, but find out that their Bankai’s are actually being stolen from them!
We Kajoumaru Hidetomo face up to one of the unnamed Sternritter. Kajoumaru tells the Sternritter to stop because he wont let him go any further than this. The Sternritter tells him that if he fears him, then he doesn’t care if he runs away, but for the Shinigami’s the Sternritter has no point in warning them of when they’ll be attacked because he absolutely hates all Shinigami. Kajoumaru tells the Quincy to not the 13th Squad because they’re going to stop him.
The Quincy tells Kajoumaru that he’s full of fear and that he has no control of what’s going to happen because the current situation is a life and death situation. As the Quincy speaks, Kajoumaru trembles in fear as he starts to sweat and becomes even more consumed by his fear. Out of nowhere, he lifts his sword and tries to attack the Quincy, he goes from the front and fails as the Quincy has already cut him without even moving or lifting a sword or hand.
Renji notices what Byakuya has said, he tells Byakuya that he wasn’t going to show any mercy because of what had happened in their courts. Byakuya mentions that there unjustful bastards has killed Sasakibe in front of Yamamoto. As Nodt steps forward, Byakuya tells him not too move because then Byakuya could get him with his blades. Renji mentions that it’s impossible to cut him.
Byakuya’s blades surround As Nodt and tells him that it’s not true. As Nodt notices in shock that he’s hand is bleeding, Renji is also surprised that Byakuya was able to cut him. The second Quincy member which is there warns As Nodt to what he’s doing because Byakuya clearly broke their Blood Coat. Byakuya tells this second member not to move because after some moments he falls down into the ground. Byakuya has made it so any movement would make the ground break and the person would fall.
Byakuya tells Renji that this is a 2 versus 1 match, Byakuya’s Senbonzakura retracts and becomes a sword once more. He tells him, if his Bankai were to be sealed away by the Quincy, Renji would use his Bankai in order to help him. Renji is surprised by the request because this is what Vice-Captain Sasakibe has said. Renji agrees and tells Byakuya that he should use his something else. This something else isn’t mentioned because Byakuya quickly tells Renji that the only way to defeat them is with their Bankai’s.
Komamura tells Testuzaemon Iba the same thing. Toshiro tells Rangiku Matsumoto the same thing because they want to find a way to break that seal which they have gotten. Soi Fong tells Marechiyo Omaeda the same thing. They all enable their Bankai’s. Byakuya with his Senbonzakura Kageyoshi, Komamura with his Kokujyou Tengen Myou’ Ou’. Soi Fong with her Jaku Hou Raikou Ben and Toshiro with his Dai Guren Hyourimaru! All the Quincies take out a circular object.
It seems as though it has activated as it’s pulling all the Captain’s Bankai’s away! Byakuya notices that As Nodt has sucked his Byakuya within that circular object! He notices that what has happened is not a Sealing Technique! As Nodt does a very scary yet wicked smile. Byakuya notices that their Bankai’s have been Stolen!! Bleach 496 ends here!
What an awesome finding! It’s crazy how powerful these Quincies are compared to what Uryu is! The captains are currently hopeless because their precious Bankai’s have been taken from them! It’ll be interesting to see what’ll happen during next week’s Bleach 497, and what the Captains are likely to do to even get close to defeating these Sternritter!
The War in Soul Society Continues with Bleach 495 Chapter titled “Bleeding Guitar Blues”. Rojuro Otoribashi is told about all the details including the one about Kira’s Reiatsu disappearing. He goes out to the battlefield to find himself an opponent. All the other Captains and Vice Captains also join in to fight the Quincies. Renji appears to battle a Sternritter, only to find out how powerful they are. Byakuya tells him to fight with all he’s got because the Quincies have come to kill every and each one of them!
Bleach 495 starts with Rojuro Otoribashi finding out that the Sternritter have defeated a large number of officers and Shinigami’s already! Tokakushi, Gori and Katakura as well as Vice Captain Kira’s Reiatsu has also disappeared! Rojuro goes on out to find a Quincy which will act as his opponent. He quickly finds one somewhere near him who heard him. The Quincy asks if someone had died, Rojuro replies to him that he would not tell him.
He reveals that where the reiatsu disappeared seemed to be Bazubi’s place, if he’s not dead, the moron screwed up. This Quincy’s name is NaNaNa Najahkoop! Rojuro asks him what he thinks friends are for, he tells him that he has no heart because Kira inspires Rojuro just like when Melodies flood into his head like tears. IF Kira dies, his Flying V would be sad too. NaNaNa tells him that he doesn’t understand a thing about the heart.
NaNaNa reveals to him that he doesn’t give a crap about the Flying V, and that Rojuro is going to be dead by the hands of NaNaNa in the next 5 Minutes! Rojuro tells him that he doesn’t know how powerful the heart is, as his Guitar is crying too because Kira may have died in these next few minutes. Rojuro warns NaNaNa that he’s not going to be leaving here alive!
At another point in Soul Society, another Quincy is attacking Shinigami’s as though they are just flies on a wall waiting to be attacked. The Quincy is Sternritter “F” As Nodt. The Shinigami’s attack are doing nothing as the needles which the Quincy posses can kill them immediately! At this point, some of the Shinigami’s start to retreat because they have no hope, someone else tells them to stand their ground no matter what!
Their duty is not to protect their own lives but to protect the Seireitei! The Quincy approaches this man and from nowhere a large sword hits the ground just in front of the man. The Shinigami looks up and notices Vice Captain Renji Abarai looking at him. Renji tells the man to stay away as he’ll handle this.
Somewhere else, another Sternritter “E” Bambietta Basterbine is going on a rampage with a smile on her face. She is stopped by the hands Sajin Komamura. He tells her that there’s even a little girl like her as a warrior of the Sternritter? She responds with the same thing but adding little puppy as Komamura. She then describes Soul Society really shorthanded as they would need such people as their captain.
At other places, Shuhei Hisagi faces a large Sternritter, Shunsui Kyoraku faces another Sternritter which has glasses and Soi Fon faces a third Sternritter who has a mask on. Jushiro Ukitake faces another Sternritter who has wild scruffy half. Toshiro Hitsugaya also faces a Sternritter who seems to wear a mask.
During Renji’s fight, he notices that his opponent, As Nodt is able to defend himself only using his hands because his attacks are doing nothing on him. He thinks about this and asks himself if this is only his ability or of all Quincies? Renji notices when he’s hit, a small mark is left on him, he decides to pick up the speed on his attacks to see what happens next.
Out of nowhere, another Quincy appears form above to take Renji on. Fortunately Renji was able to move away at the attack and the Quincy hits the ground. This Quincy is very quick. A man’s voice appears in the back, he tells him that there is no need to analyze him because there is no need to show mercy. The Quincies are showing no mercy, so the Shinigami’s should also show mercy! Byakuya appears and tells Renji to cut them down with his full powers! Bleach 495 ends here with an awesome beginning to their fight!
Wow, what an awesome chapter, these introduction to fights and how the Quincies are judging the Captains is wrong because NaNaNa is going to get his ass beat by Rojuro! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 496 when the war continues with all of them! Hopefully we’ll get to see the fight between Ichigo and Kirge continue! These fights are starting to get more and more epic!
