Zaraki fights his Majesty! – Yamamoto enters Battlefield! – Bleach 503

Bleach 503 impresses me as the action just keeps on stacking up! Bleach 503 has a whole load of fantastic action. We see Zaraki finally go up against the Vandenreich Leader! Zaraki strikes his sword while the Leader blocks it, a large explosion appears! Ichigo is still trapped while Yamamoto appears to save Hisagi.

Bleach 503 starts off with the unnamed Vandenreich members feeling the strong reiatsu which Zaraki has. He looks to his side to see that Zaraki is holding three strong Vandenreich Stern Ritter’s! Zaraki introduces himself with a large smile! He drops each of the three Stern Ritter on the ground.

The first is called Stern Ritter Y “Yourself” called Loyd Lloyd, the second Stern Ritter R “Roar” called Jerome Guizbatt and lastly Stern Ritter Q “Question” Berenice Gabrielli. The unnamed member asks how he killed them, Zaraki explains that the first was a thrash who became a huge ape that blows away the enemy with his voice, so Zaraki cut him in half. The second went on about having something against Zaraki so he cut her throat off. And the third was an average who transformed into Zaraki.

It was himself so he couldn’t do much, but the imitation was killed because he wasn’t as strong as Zaraki. The unnamed member tells him that he’s heard about Zaraki before, and how he’s a monster. Zaraki quickly stops him talking and says that he has no interest in the white beanpole, he just came there to fight the Vandenreich Leader!

Zaraki goes up and tries to strike his sword! He does this at the same time the Vandenreich Leader blocks his attack only using his hand! A large explosion appears all around them!

We now go to Ichigo where he speaks Byakuya, Renji and Rukia, he now shouts and strikes the cage using his own power to break it! At each hit he tries some energy from the  cage flies off at a direction. Ichigo says that he won’t let him die no matter what because he’s going to protect them all!

At another battle, we see Hisagi getting beat down by one of the other Stern Ritter, he says that it’s so painful to fight someone who is such a weak Vice-Captain! His name is Driscoll Berci, Stern Ritter O “Overkill”. Hisagi realizes that this is impossible because he’s just too damn powerful plus they can’t do anything without using their Bankai!

Driscoll Berci asks if he’s afraid of his power, he also mentions that his Majesty gave him the letter O for “Overkill” this means the more he kills, enemies allies or even beasts the stronger he will get. Driscoll Berci sends a large cross like Quincy bow which at high-speed travels really quickly!

Someone appears and Hisagi is shocked! This person was able to knock back the Quincy bow from its direction! We now see closer to find out that the most powerful man in the whole of Soul Society appears! Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto finally appears in battle! Using his only hand he knocks it off direction! Driscoll says that he’s lucky that he’s able to fight with Yamamoto, plus he’s going to use his Subordinate’s Bankai to kill him. Bleach 503 ends here!

WOW! Zaraki has just started his fight with the Vandenreich Leader while Yamamoto has just started by stepping in to save Hisagi! This will truly turn out to be an impressive war! This is going to be an epic fight, Driscoll Berci holds no chance of winning against Yamamoto! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 504 chapter, It’s going to be epic to see Yamamoto fight!

      Yeah agree, Zaraki is a beast but he’s likely to lose here, or maybe! Zaraki does beat the Leader and the plot changes altogether! Someone else in the Quincy kingdom becomes the leader who could have been beater and the other become leader time ago, controlling the Vandenreich from inside…

          Well i think we already know how strong his Bult Vene is. Strong enough to block Zaraki’s Shikai Blade. Just imagine his Blut Arterie, must be fucking powerful! Maybe he used that Bult to blow up Ludiers and Ivan just from pointing at them.

    Zaraki truely is a beast. Looking how calm the leader is, i wouldnt be suprised if he easly overpowered Kenpachi in the end. Blondie looks scared as hell. lol

    Mr. Overkill unfortunately has choosen the wrong person to kill. Really nice set up from Kubo to put the Yama-ji to avenge his vice captain. Also cant wait for Sasakibes bankai to be shown. 😀

    Ichigo is again in despair. He can hear everything and is vitnessing the utter defeat of SS with his own ears but cant do anything. I think there is no worse situation for a human. I also noticed that when trying to break the cage there was black and white substance in the air at some panels? Bringer light? Will Ichigo get a new power up? I wish it would be something like his final getsuga tensho form. Keep calm and own like a boss. lol

      Someone will appear to help Zaraki, or quincies will have to escape. I mean, he can’t die right now.

      Well, it’s a pity Kubo gave up other captains’ fights and redirected to vices.

      My friend says Yama’s going to die there 😦 I myself think Sternritter O will start to kill smal insects or something and will become very powerful. But Sasakibe’s dead, really dead. And his Bankai was stolen. You mean someone can use it against Yama?

      Hope Ichigo gets power-up, but doubt it’s gonna be fullbringing. And yeah, he seems likely to break the cage he’s stuck in.

        Why not? If their top figher loses it will make the despair thing even stronger.

        Everything on its time mate. We still have to see Kyoraku, Ukitake, Shinji…he can afford to skip Hitsugaya, Komamura and Soi Fon as there is absolutely nothing to show there except them loosing.

        Nah, he wont die. Kubo is making “their” Kenpachi (Drascoll) fight Yamamoto and Kenpachi fight “their” Yamamoto (leader). Drascoll and Kenpachi are bound to lose their fights. This doesnt mean we wont get some interesting stuff as it happens. 😀

          Now i dont agree with you about Toshiro, Soifon and Sajin lossing there fights against the Stern Ritter. They may have there Bankai’s, but Toshiro has Rangiku who is Captain-level Shinigami that can help him get his Bankai back. Same with Soifon, her and Omeada work together very well, plus i bet Soifon’s Shunpo can outrun that Midevel Knight Stern Ritter’s Hirenkyaku. And she can use Shunpo, Hakuda and Omnitsukido techniques against his codename powers and Quincy abilities. And if he uses Bult Vene & Bult Arterie, she can use Shunko to counter both of them. Sajin has his immense size, very quick reflexes and Hakuda and Zanjutsu skills. But Bambietta will use his Bankai so thats problem.

            Only thing i agree is Soi Fons Shunpo but still not enough to beat a Sternritter. You also have to consider that her opponent has a special ability as well.

            Rangiku captain level? Dont think so…VCs are fodder against VR.

              My vision of Soi Fong’s fight:
              At first, thay’ll talk, as always. Even Bargan talked to Soi Fong. Soi Fong’s will try to win the fight 1) before the guy uses Bankai 2) without any help from aside, I mean Omaeda.
              Next, Soi Fong’s got Shunko. It is similar to Blut. Nothing here, they’re going to fight a lil without weapons.
              Then, weapon time, Soi Fong’s got a sword and is quick. Quincy’s got arrows. Nothing here, again, maybe both will have slight injuries.
              Special time – Quincy special abilities, Soi Fong releases zanpakuto. Someone will be seriously hurt, lol.
              But now the masked (masked! Is he a hollow? Want hollows, want hollows XD) Quincy has that rocket launcher of her. And hope he knows how to use it, because he may be trown away by its power, lol.

              You see, no Omaeda.

                Good thinking bro i so agree on the battle! :-). My guess is the Midevil Knight Stern Ritter is a Hirenkyaku Expert, he wont be able to keep up with Soifon’s Shunpo. Barragon did cause he’s a Sonido Master. And her Shunpo techniques will be useful. And his Heilig Pfeil useful for him. Then Shikai Suzumebachi vs Spirit Weapon will find out. You are right about Shunko, it can be use as a shield around her whole body. And increase her Hakuda techniques, as well has fire Shunko blasts for long-range attacks. Also agree that he wont be able to know how to use her Bankai Jakuho Raikobien in time to fire it. Sajin’s battle against Bambietta is still on my mind.

          Well, I can’t really say what I mean, but shinegami are meant to win the fights eventually. So, if most of them die, that will be very hard to win the war. And Zaraki is a key IMHO, because he hasn’t got a Bankai, but is as strong, as captains with Bankais.

          Yeah, I guess you’re right, everything on its time. I thought the story was very strange, and the order of fights was strange, but now I see it’s quite natural. In 504 we’ll see two-three Yama pages, then Ichigo, then some Captain or vice. Or if we see Ichigo breaking the cage, than no Captain fight. May we see Ichigo’s power-up in the next chapter, what do you think?

          Wow, that’s right. How did you guess Drascoll is “Kenpachi”? It suddenly came clear to me 😀

            I am not sure if you quoting my post or not but i will answer anyways.

            At this phase of the war they wont win. The main point is for them to get utterly defeated. Only after that this arc will get into its serious part.

            Maybe we will maybe not. So many cliffhangers and exciting things to come. I personally would like to see who the guy that killed Kirge is in the next chapter. Kubo is making us wait too much.

            Well he is a blood thirsty beast and also on the cover of the first chapter of this arc. For him to be there must mean he is top tier of the Sternritter.

              Maybe, maybe, but it will be very upsetting to lose some other captains. Two of my friends have already stopped watching Bleach, because Byakuya died. Even rhough I tried to convince them of him being alive.

              Yeah, Hueco Mundo Mystery, as I personally call it, is the most interesting moment in manga now. Somehow, I managed not to think about it. My position is Aizen, though neither Sunite nor Nick Dunn agree with me. It may also be Nel, Karin, Grimmjow, released Shirosaki, released Kirge himself, new character. Nope, not too much, just remember Ulquiorra vs. Ichigo manga. Or anime. There was Captain vs. Espada 123 fight in manga and a freaking filler in the anime.

              I’m not a native speaker myself, but I see some unknown words, so I think your English is very good 🙂

                A character death shouldnt be a reason to stop reading in my opinion. It gives room for other characters to develop. For example Renji and Rukia will want to avange him no matter what and get desperetely stronger for that purpose. Dont misunderstand me, Byak is one of my fave characters as well.

                90% that it is Grimmjow though my fave is Aizen.

                  Have a look at the sword’s color. It can be Aizen, Yamamoto or Grimmjow, cause only they have two-colored zanpakuto, not sure about Grimmjow.

                  But Yamamoto is currently in the Soul Society fighting Driscoll. He cant be in Hueco Mundo at the same time. Aizen is still in prison in the Muken, he’s not gonna appear until later. Its to soon for Grimmjow to appear, plus he’s not that strong to cut someone as strong as Kirge in half with just his Sealed Zanpakuto. Still think its Kirio Hikifune cause Kisuke was like “Oh no!” Cause a Royal Guard member had to come and get Ichigo cause nearly everyone is dieing, or i could be Neliel that transformed after seeing Ichigo get imprisoned and freaking out and Orihime and Chad got injured too.

      Damn he killed three Stern Ritters without getting injured! Im not surprised. Stern Ritter “R” for “The Roar” Jerome Guizbatt can transform into an ape and blow opponents away with his hyper voice. Stern Ritter “Y” for “The Yourself” Loyd Llyod can copy the abilities & powers of his opponents. Stern Ritter “Q” for “The Question” she has the power to know all of her opponents abilities & powers when there hit by her Spirit Weapon. But Zaraki killed her and Jerome in one hit. But Loyd was average from Zaraki’s point of view. Vandenreich Leader blocked Zaraki’s Shikai with his forarm! His Bult Vene is Powerful! Then Yamamoto is fighting Driscoll. If Zaraki is going to lose against the Vandenreich Leader, the Driscoll will lose against Yamamoto.

            No he was one of the several Quincy that came to soul society and fought against Chojiro Sasakibe. He released his Bankai and Driscoll stole it then beat the shit out of him possibly from killing alot of 1 division guards and his strength incresed. Go back to the chapter were he was attacked, the Heilig Pfeil that pierced through Chojiro’s entire chest looks exactly like the Heilig Pfeil he used to try and kill Shuuhei but Yamamoto defected it. He’s going to use Chojiro’s Lightning Bankai to “defeat” Yamamoto. I dont think Shuuhei achieved Bankai, but you never know. Tite did say some of the Vice-Captains would achieve Bankai. But he cant use it anyway if he has one.

                  Gonyeomaru is IMHO a power zanpakuto, like Zangetsu or Zabimaru. Just increasing the sword’s abilities or master’s abilities of speed, etc.

    Hey guys, new suggestion by me (maybe it would be better to put it here, because noone answers neither in chapter 502 nor in Thousand-Year Blood War conversation):

    Things even worse about Byakuya. My suggestion is that, when the new quincy kill (or nearly kill) someone, they take control over him (at least at his body). Proof is strange behaviour of Jidanbou and his eyes expression (they were empty).

    So, I think Byakuya Kuchiki was killed, but he’s now alive and under control of the Vandenreich! How do you like the idea? Is it better than him dead or worse?

      Well i think whoever is controlling Jidanbou is a Stern Ritter thats letter and codename means to take over minds of his/her opponents. When Jidanbou attacked the Department of research and development, you see someone standing behind him. I think that Stern Ritter that was fighting Rukia and attacked her from behind. Sense Rin was being controlled by the Stern Ritter and attacked Hiyosu. That shows that the Stern Ritter’s Spirit Weapon can control others without hitting them, just by being near his/her Spirit Weapon.
