Bleach 525 shows us why Zaraki is truly the strongest Shinigami within the Gotei 13! He keeps on going unconscious and coming back, it seems like he’s quick death brings him back even stronger than before! Unohana’s thirst to fight a stronger is met as Younger Zaraki shows why she’s weaker than him! Zaraki comes back alive with a larger force after Unohana keeps healing him when he’s unconscious!
Bleach 525 begins as Zaraki comes back once again after he was unconscious, he mentions that it keeps on happening over and over again in the middle of his fight, then comes back! It feels nostalgic for him, he mentions that fighting is fun, but he never happens to lose control or consciousness of himself. It only happened once before, only that time when he fought against her.
We move onto the past where a man talks to her captain mentions that they’ve searched Rukongai, and were unable to find someone strong enough to satisfy him, Unohana realizes that he’s clear to her intentions! He then goes on to mention that the mission was to find someone strong to which she could go up against in a fight against her. He then mentions that he will consider the mountain of dead people killed by her as representing how displeased she is.
She notices the number of people, shes surprised that she didn’t create it for herself, he asks if she didn’t create it herself! A younger Zaraki appears with a massive sword compared to the size of his body! The man asks who that kid is, Unohana mentions that at this point she had lost control! Zaraki jumps at Unohana, he comes at unbelievable speeds from the sky, she mentions that she goes around in order to find someone who she can compete with!
Both their sword clash and from out of nowhere! Unohana is stabbed with just one shot! The origins of the scar below her neck can be traced to this moment. Unohana mentions that she didn’t think that she would find such pleasure in fighting against a child. Zaraki once again goes unconscious and comes back, after he’s come back he’s finally able to cut Unohana on the arm!
Zaraki cheers for himself as he’s finally able to get a hit on her, he then mentions that until earlier he was only reacting to Unohana’s sword, but if he only concentrates on his reflex, then he’s going to be able to get a hit on Unohana! He notices that every time he loses consciousness and comes back, he feels as though he’s reborn even more powerful!
Unohana mentions that he probably doesn’t realize it, but unconsciously he was restraining himself, this affected his fighting power as it was restraining that also. Unohana remembers the moments he barely lost against Ichigo and also nearly won against Nnoitra! To an outsider, it may seem like the opponent was strong, but Unohana knew that it was because Zaraki has sealed his own power to an extreme level!
During their first ever fight, they both felt a joy in which they never had experienced before! She goes on to explain that Zaraki had felt joy by fighting to his limits, she mentions that this is her sin that she had made him decrease his abilities. To Zaraki, everyone around him was nothing, it was nothing for him, at that point, for him Unohana was the first enemy he met in which he could compete with his power!
She mentions that at that point, she was weaker than Zaraki! It was someone Zaraki could call enemy as if he lost her, he would completely lose the opportunity to enjoy a fight ever again! Unohana’s weakness was what brought Zaraki’s powers down, as for him to not kill her, he adjusted to her weakness.
He unconsciously and gradually restrained and sealed his own reiatsu, she was desperate, therefore he had sealed his own power because of her worthlessness! She mentions that every time he fights and goes to the verge of dead, he little by little broke his shackles and was able to open some of the restrained reiatsu!
Unohana mentions that she’s stronger than anyone except for Zaraki! That is why she’s going to kill Zaraki a hundred thousand times, at the same time she will heal him over and over again until he returns to be his old self in which he’s powers are fully open! Unohana keeps stabbing him, while at the same time, she heals him. She mentions that she was for him to keep on goes higher and higher until she is once again surpassed!
Zaraki seems to be coming back from death with a smile! Unohana tells Zaraki to come and get her, he swings his massive sword and it seems like it could be a crucial hit on Unohana, but with her healing skills, she could easily heal herself! This is the point in which Bleach 525 ends.
One word can describe this chapter! WOW, Unohana has quickly acted and found out a way for Zaraki to bring forth his great powers! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 526 when we’re likely to see Zaraki and Unohana’s battle possibly ends with a high, I presume that Zaraki may defeat Unohana, and maybe even kill her!
