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!
