Ichigo Shoulders Emotion – Byakuya and Zaraki Alive!! – Bleach 515

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.

    HEY! Aizen once said that he knew Ichigo since the beginning, Right? meaning he knows that Ichigo is a hybrid. A HUMAN, SHINIGAMI, HOLLOW, and also a QUINCY. The question is why Aizen doesn’t tell this things to ICHIGO?

        woah, that’s pretty intense seeing you’re last opponent and asking him some interesting questions however I wonder if Aizen would cooperate to Ichi’s despair and tell the truth, what I’m saying is probably Aizen have a grudge to ichi because he was defeated by him.

          Even if it’s going to turn out like this it’s not going to happen anytime soon, I doubt Ichigo is even going to get permission to see him. Asking Aizen can turn out to be a last resort. I think Isshin will give Ichigo some answers.

          That reminds me, when Ichigo found out his dad was a Shinigami Isshin wanted to tell him something important but Ichigo said he should leave it for later and tell him when he is comfortable with telling him that. We might soon learn what it was.

              He doesn’t have fullbring powers anymore.
              The last remnants of his fullbring powers are the one’s that fused with his shinigami look. Basically the big cross on his chest in his normal look and the white straps of his bankai look.
              This was confirmed by Kubo himself.

      Hmm maybe because even Aizen doesn’t know the full story? Juha Bach may only know that Ichigo had Quincy/Human/Shinigami, while Aizen may only know that Ichigo is a Human/Shinigami/Hollow…
      and yeah what Isamu said could be awesome! 😀

    Well this chapter answered why Unohana and Isane stayed in during the battle.
    But being a Byakuya fan, I’m disappointed that Byakuya is alive. He was shown to die twice in the last 15 chapters. His sword disintegrated.

    That being said, I’m half sure that Byakuya will die in the next few chapters from his wounds. My guess is that Kubo wanted Byakuya to have a small talk with Rukia and Renji before he dies. So that could be why he didn’t let him die yet. But his sword disintegrated. So that means his soul is fading away.

    Liked how Kyoruku was calm and composed unlike the other captains. Soi Fon for some reason was too upset. Maybe she was very loyal towards Yamamoto or she just can’t believe the strongest Shinigami ever was just defeated.

    Kenpachi is also supposedly in the same state as Byakuya? That doesn’t make sense since he was defeated by a decoy Bach. He wouldn’t have been so serious like Byakuya who was pounded by his own Bankai almost 5 times and lost an arm in the process.

    Wonder what the next chapter will be about. Have a feeling that Urahara will come to SS with the mystery swordsman.
    The 1st phase of the war is over. My guess is that the next 10-20 chapters will be recovering and getting more information about Ichigo and his past and how the shinigami can counter the medallion that steals bankai.

        I don’t think so, Ichigo inherited his Shinigami powers from Isshin and their similarity is visible – Zangetsu and Engetsu both possess the same power, which is Getsuga Tenshou, this should serve as enough proof that Ichigo’s father is no one else but Isshin. People take the “son” bit too literally.

      Yeah, I was surprised that Unohana stayed, because I kept waiting for her to arrive and kick some ass, but since she stayed in, it’s going to be even more awesome because she’s going to be even more angry and use that rage to kick some serious ass!

      I’m also disappointed, if he is too weak to even wake up then he should have just died, but as you described, it could create some very emotional moments for Rukia and Renji as Byakuya dies…

      I guess Shunsui is becoming more and more like Kenpachi, getting the eye patch and such, Personally It doesn’t suit him, even though it looks awesome right now, he needs to recover that eye before he goes to war and unleash his Bankai.

      The Twins who decoyed Juha Bach can replicate the amount of power the Real has, so it was the same power as the real Juha Bach, and he’s pretty tough, also Zaraki seems like a stronger captain so he’s more likely to live and fight, while Byakuya seemed like he gave up in the few last chapter.

      The mystery person still seems like either Nel or an Division 0 member to me, hopefully we do see them in Soul Society, or else they’ll go to the Human World. The lie about Orihime and Chad being okay could have been said so that Ichigo doesn’t panic and stays and helps in Soul Society.
      Yeah, 10-20 chapters full of mysteries and explanations will be awesome, plus seeing Soul Society finding where the Vandenreich HQ is could be epic, possibly by Mayuri or Akon… Hopefully we see Aizen shortly, or else he’s escaped by now..

        About the twins, I doubt they could copy the exact amount of powers cause then he would have been strong enough to use Yamamoto’s bankai. Bach said he isn’t powerful enough and that’s why he had to wait for Bach to comeback. But yea, it is possible that he was able to imitate Bach’s strength to a certain limit.

        Actually, I’m expecting ichigo to go talk to Aizen or his dad real soon now. I doubt Aizen has escaped since Bach only had a small talk with him. Bach would have freed him if he accepted the offer to join the quincies.
        My question is, has aizen’s abilities become passive? Can he use them without a sword? Cause if it is THAT, then I don’t think anyone will let Aizen out since he will be too dangerous.

          It seems like its been some time since Juha Bach left, so maybe Aizen could have had enough time to escape if it hit him breaking him free… What if somehow he was able to hide his sword during the point he was fighting Ichigo, he hide it somewhere where he could summon it or something, so I think yeah, he can

        That would be great. As Kenpachi now knows there are enemies so strong he can’t even have fun fighting them he may seek to improve his abilities. Although Bankai is out of the question achieving Shikai should give him some serious power boost.

      They’ve got their revenge and probably shunsui would be the Leader since he was so calm. I’m thinking that Captain Kurotsuchi noticed something on Ichi’s zanpakutou.

        Shunsui is possibly the next up for the title, with Unohana and Ukitake, them 3 have been in the mix with Yamamoto for the longest amount of time and it’s best if one of them is appointed the Captain Commander.
        Plus I think Cpt. Kurotsuchi called Ichigo because he wanted for Ichigo to possibly explain something to him, maybe about the Quincy Side because after thorough research, Mayuri could have found Ichigo’s sword having a large amount of both Shinigami and Quincy Reiatsu, could this be possible??

          I just think Mayuri called Ichigo to give him his fixed zanpaktou back. But he might find something different in Ichigo when ichigo meets him which might prompt a discussion of what happened. The person Ichigo needs to talk to is Isshin now.

    Welll……we learned a lot in this chapter, but I would have preferred to actually see some more Hueco Mundo action. It’s taking forever to see Urahara’s subplot.

    At this point, I think Byakuya will survive. Just because the whole acoma thing is almost pointless without it. If he gets up to say hi to Rukia and Renji…then why kill him off yet again? I think at the most he’ll maybe retire, but I could see him coming in to save everybody later in an epic splash page or something.

    Yeah, I think Zaraki shouldn’t be in a huge acoma like that. Shunsui doesn’t look too injured so maybe it’s safe to assume that he was winning his math towards the end. Maybe he even won which would be cool I like to think that SS would have won the battle had it kept going.

    I hope SS counterattacks first. It would be sad to see the Quincies attacking yet again with the SS not prepared. I also think Yama’s decision wasn’t that great. Keeping Unohana and everyone inside…I can see everyone else, but Unohana is a Captain. She can take care of herself.

    Well….hopefully Ichigo gets his sword back with a spiffy upgrade and pwns everybody 🙂

      Hearing Byakuya being alive wasn’t one of the best things, although it was nice to hear something about Byakuya and Zaraki, Byakuya especially didn’t need to be alive, however I presume that Kubo wanted to somehow have a bigger death for Byakuya, or he’s still got something AWESOME left for Byakuya that he had to kept alive.. Retire, hmm maybe train the next Kuchiki head? Coming back strong maybe… like Mayuri mentioned in 516, his sword was shattered, it would take some time to bring it back, plus Senbonzakura wasn’t even in there so hard to say if he’ll hold another sword…

      Shunsui may have not won, but since Juha and everyone were all order to retreat and wait for Zero Division to appear, his opponent also retreated.. Regarding Unohana, I think since medical personnel are the heart of any war, keeping them in that building made sure that Soul Society could save as many as possible and attack once they’re on their feet, this meant that the Medics are really weak thus he didn’t want any of them to be killed…

        I think he meant to have Byakuya destroyed, but the fanbase was in a huge uproar, so maybe he just reconsidered. Like you said, he could maybe just be there to train the next heir to the Kuchiki title. I’d be satisfied with that.

        I still think Shunsui would have won though. I mean, aside from Yamamoto, they’ve been hinting that he could be the strongest captain. Plus, Zaraki beat 3, so Shunsui should at least be able to beat 1.

        Yeah, most medics are pretty weak, but I’m guessing that Unohana would have been strong enough. Plus, everyone already died while they were waiting. That’s why the lieutenant was sad that they couldn’t even save one person during the chaos. Assuming that 60% of people in Soul Society died…that’s a lot of casulties….this is war though I guess

          Very true, the Unohana thing also made me think, we know that Unohana respected Yamamoto, but after so many deaths, they could have saved a few, although if Unohana appeared, Juha Bach would head over to her to kill her, so it’s all just strategy and such…

      I can see why you’re so frustrated but about Byakuya, I am sure he will die in the next few chapters after he gets to speak with Renji and Rukia. His sword disintegrated so that clearly shows that his soul is fading away. Another 3 chapters and Byakuya will officially be dead.

      And everyone knew kenpachi wouldn’t die. He was just beaten up badly. Kubo probably wanted to show that he was beaten up to an extent that he could have died even though we all know he didn’t.

    Soi Fon got her ass TOLD!!! lol I dislike her character and she is annoying so I particularly enjoyed that part mwahaha…yea I think Ichigo is just trying to deal with finding out he’s part Quincy and such/wondering about his mom. But this is probably the reason why his father was exiled from Soul Society for sleeping with the enemy hehe.
