Bleach 523 shows us the most powerful captains against each other. Zaraki Kenpachi vs Yachiru “Kenpachi” Unohana! The first ever Kenpachi goes up against the latest Kenpachi in order to find out who’s more powerful. Even Shunsui believes that one of them will die! While Ichigo and Renji go up against the Asauchi in which interact with many Zanpakutou’s, they are angry at both of them for using them in a wrong way!
Bleach 523 begins in the hole in which Ichigo and Renji both fell in. Nimaiya Ouetsu tells them that they don’t have to be scared as they should know them well. They have described as being the strongest Zanpakutou as they can become anything. He calls them the Asauchi, after this, both Renji and Ichigo are shocked at this as all of them start to jump and seem to be going to attack them!
The Asauchi are described to help people gain and construct their own Zanpakutou. Members who’ve graduated and enter a division all gain nameless Zanpakutou’s. The Shinigami’s live day and night with their Zanpakutou, and whilst they train, they project their essence of their soul onto the Asauchi which in other words constructs their own Zanpakutou.
The Asauchi are all made by one person and that one person is Nimaiya Ouetsu. Ichigo asks why they have to fight them, Nimaiya tells them that it’s no point to concentrate on that as they’re currently angry at them because of the way they use their Zanpakutou. Nimaiya describes that their fighting style is all messed up, they categorize their Zanpakutou as being something different from them, and thus putting themselves at a higher form then the Zanpakutou’s, Nimaiya tells them to stop fooling around.
The faces of the Asauchi seems as though they’re crying, they ask if the Zanpakutou or the Shinigami is on top, both Renji and Ichigo are unable to answer. We move to Soul Society, Central Underground Great Prison, bottom floor “Muken”. A door opens and it seems like Zaraki has arrived!
Zaraki realizes that he’s arrived in a great stage in which no one will be able to hear, Unohana tells Zaraki that it was Shunsui’s orders. Unohana tells him, the word Muken means that it’s completely closed off, and it’s endlessly broad therefore it was decided that there could be no other place better for Zaraki to swing his sword! If not, neither a criminal nor them would be allowed to set foot on that ground.
Zaraki tells Unohana that if it wasn’t for their strength, they would anything more than criminal! Unohana turns around to look at Zaraki. Surprisingly she’s finally seen with her hair and braids un-braided and flowing! She agree’s with Zaraki’s comment. She also tells him that he’s got no strength, that’s why she thinks that this place is best for him.
Win and become a captain or lose and become a criminal says Zaraki. He mentions that if he dies by fighting her or if she kills him, it’s no different from eternal hell. Unohana mentions that he’s talking a lot today. Unohana fully turns around and finally shows her hair flowing through the wind, we also notice that expression on her wicked face. She also seems to have a injury sustained to her chest in which she describes as throbbing. Zaraki tells her that she’s not the only one who’s wounds won’t stop throbbing!
They finally go up against each other! Both take their swords out and swing! A brief description of Yachiru Kenpachi Unohana is described here. Among the first 13 Division was Unohana who laid the foundations for the current 11th Division. Before Yamamoto bought his strength and she became a captain. She was a unprecedented horrible villain of Soul Society.
She was said to know all of the swordsmanship as well as the swords. She named herself Yachiru for this matter. Shunsui is seen reading this, he mentions that if both Unohana and Zaraki clash their swords, even he knows that one of them will have to die! We now see both Zaraki and Unohana clash their great swords with each other! Bleach 523 ends here!
What a fantastic chapter! It was awesome to finally see Zaraki and Unohana finally clash, and it was a definite surprise to see that Zaraki knew that Unohana was the first Kenpachi! So let the greatest onslaught begin!! Can’t wait next week’s Bleach 524, when they may continue this great battle! It’ll be terrible to see any of them to go!
