We keep getting deeper and deeper into the Final Arc of Bleach. We see Ivan Azgiaro refuse to remove himself from Ichigo’s bed, Ichigo kick him in the face. Ichigo finds out that Ivan has a Quincy cross which helps him to create a huge bow. While Ikkaku and Yumichika arrive at a deserted part of Rukongai.
Ichigo once again asks Ivan Azgiaro to remove himself from the bed, Ivan refuses and Ichigo quickly goes to kick him in the face, we see that Orihime opens the closed window so he doesn’t break it. Uryu, Chad and Orihime mention to Ichigo that they wont be joining them as they will first finish their breads first. At this point Shino and Yuki are both afraid.
Ivan wonders why Ichigo kicked him out, Ichigo mentions that Ivan should follow Ichigo so they could settle their business. Ivan asks Ichigo if he’s curious to know who Ivan is, Ichigo replies to Ivan that he’s not.
At this point, Ichigo asks Ivan, due to the Hollow Mask, if he’s an Arrancar. Ivan steps in front of Ichigo and says that he’s not an Arrancar. At this point he drops his left hand which allows Ichigo to see the Quincy Cross. Ichigo is literally shocked as he’s never seen someone who looks like a Arrancar with a Quincy Cross. Or even seen a person with Quincy abilities other than Uryu and his father, Ryuken Ishida.
Ivan opens his Quincy Cross to reveal that it’s actually a massive bow, or something very similar to a bow. Ichigo is still shocked at this point as he’s never seen something similar to this. Ichigo might have a great battle in front of him.
We move onto where Ikkaku and Yumichika are located, Rukongai – District 64 East Sabitsura. There notice that no one is there except the scout that was sent to see where all the people have gone. He finds nothing except a two types of footprints, barefoot and sandal prints, it looks like the inhabitants were erased by someone in their midst.
We now go to where Captain-Commander Shigekuni Genryusai Yamamoto is located. We see that he is being told what all the divisions are doing, while the person there is killed in an instant. Yamamoto turns around to see 7 people who have very similar outfit to those of Arrancar’s, but this time they have a black mask with a hat, with a black rope which goes around them from left shoulders to right hip and back round.
They mention that they are there to declare war on you. Here the chapter ends. The last sentence is somewhat confusing since the they actually say they are there to declare war on Yamamoto, would that mean that there has been some kind of past between them? Well I personally think that they do since this arc’s name is The Thousand-Year Blood War. So there has to be some kind of past between them.
Also this chapter has been great since we actually have a brief idea of what’s going to happen. A war! And also next week’s Bleach 483 is going to be epic since there is chance Ivan and Ichigo are going, head to head!
