Zaraki and Unohana fight!Bleach 526 roars through another fantastic chapter as it finally displays the affectionate of Unohana as even after Unohana’s Minazuki Bankai is enables, she is finally stabbed properly where she had obtained her first injury from Zaraki! She goes on to enable her bloody Minazuki Bankai then to mention that Zaraki was the only one to satisfy her needs!

Bleach 526 carries on from last week’s chapter as Zaraki has gotten an impressive hit on Unohana! She steps back and at the same time, she gets a strike at Zaraki’s face making another mark! Zaraki asks if she even though that he was dead, she mentions that it’s too kind of her to mention so. Unohana quickly uses her magic to try to heal her current injury, she mentions that he can’t possibly know why she mastered her Kaido (Literally Meaning Healing Kido).

She quickly goes on to surprise us even more as she finally enables her Bankai! Blood spills from the skies, as though it was rain, she enables it caller her Minazuki Bankai out! Zaraki notices all the blood that’s dropping! Unohana’s sword is straightened and changes into a sword with never-ending blood oozing from it. She mentions that the play is over!

Both of them go crazy and quickly go on their attacks! They keep on clashing, Zaraki can feel that the sword Unohana currently has melts her, it starts to degrade his face from skin to flesh and to bone! He mentions that it’s fun! He notices his hands and cloths degrade away from his bony hands. He asks himself what that is, he mentions that everything seems to be different, at the same time, he sees Unohana with no face except bones!

Zaraki mentions that everything is so different, he’s been asleep, he’s  just been dreaming about their contacts over and over again, he calls this exchange to have no name, but thanks to her, she now realizes that this can be called, Fighting! They keep on clashing swords and spilling blood! Unohana mentions that she likes fighting! Zaraki likes it so much that he can’t help it, Zaraki is back to seeing flesh and blood again.

Unohana mentions that Zaraki was able to find a way in which he could restrain himself, so that he could enjoy fighting forever, while she found a way to heal herself so that she could also enjoy fighting herself! However, all the powers she obtained was for this day, it was for this fight she mentions. There is only one Kenpachi in every era. This is a rule and an unavoidable destiny!

This is due to the fact that when a strong person find another strong opponent, they stop using the sword just for themselves, and either use it to either kill or raise the other strong person! Unohana’s sword was used to raise Zaraki! We notice during their first fight a long time ago, Zaraki’s been defeated! While leaving Unohana is some injuries. She mentions that this boy is suited to take the Kenpachi name!

Zaraki looks at Unohana while Unohana stares right at Zaraki, she seems to be floating back while Zaraki standing in his attack position. She quickly whispers the word farewell, she then has the though that he’s the only man in the world that could make her happy. At this point, Zaraki lunges his sword through the original stab he was going for all those years ago! They both are pretty close here. This is the end of Bleach 526!

What a fantastic chapter, it’s such an emotional moment for Unohana to see Zaraki grow up to take the name Kenpachi, while at the same time, she also takes the attack she clearly wanted to help Zaraki to improve. Hopefully she can heal herself from this but it’ll obviously be hard for her at this point! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 527!

    Well, I didn’t like the way Zaraki ended it. He seemed too powerful, I mean, Unohana used her bankai and Zaraki still doesn’t know his zanpakutou’s name. The characteres are getting too strong. I bet Ichigo, Renji and Byakuya will return much stronger. And at the same time I bet Ukitake’s and Kyoraku’s bankai will be almost as strong.

    For me it is getting too much like Dragon ball, after the vegeta saga every character had the strentgh to blow up Earth. But they kept getting stronger, SSJ Goku should be able to destroy planets with a sneeze. Bleach is the same, the powers evolution seems great and meaningless altogether.

      Her zanpakutou didn’t seem that powerful either… it was a type of illusion to get zaraki to shock, but after their fights… Unohana was easily overpowered… Ill have to agree that they’re powerful, but they need to be so that they can defeat their opponents..

    Definitely another solid chapter. I have to say that Unohana’s bankai disappointed me a bit. I’m still not even sure what it did. Was the skeletons metaphysical or something? Either way solid fight and while Zaraki did (not) earn his victory, he still put up a brave fight. Of course…if he can’t even beat Unohana, can he really expect to help Ichigo against the tougher opponents? He’s gonna need his bankai and fast! Hopefully the soul society is almost ready to strike!

      It was a type of illusion, I think it was trying to get Zaraki to go into shock… It’s like the Genjutsu from Itachi, can be used for torture etc…
      I think she gave her life away… if she’s a strong shinigami, she’ll come back to fight because SS are losing a lot of people… I’ve been telling everyone that his not going to get a bankai, and his shikai/name has a slight chance of happening… I’m hoping it does but realistically it’s unlikely..

        Hmm…possibly. I’m not sure about that, but I won’t deny the possibility. I think it was that she manipulates blood and the skeletons were metaphysical.

        Yeah, she definitely let Zaraki win. It would be cool if she came back. I have to say that I definitely think Zaraki will get his bankai. Personally, I think that he currently has it now, thanks to finally waking up. He just won’t need to use it for a while. I just hope that it’s a good bankai!

    Ok wait, so did Zaraki just learn his sword’s name? I’m not too clear on that point. And yea not too sure what Unohana’s bankai did either, but I feel like the skeleton thing being in Zaraki’s mind makes more sense. However if it wasn’t, the only explanation I feel makes sense is the surrounding reiatsu would be so strong it could have healed him….or Unohana did it.

          It would be, but I doubt it, I’m hoping for Zaraki to go crazy with his current powers, destroying everything in his path as he walks..! I’m hoping that he fights the brother of the previous fake Juha Bach, to find out that his brother defeated the weaker Zaraki, but now he’s back with a lot more power! Also, I hope that Haschwald goes up against Zaraki, although it’s most likely to be Byakuya or Renji who does this…

    one thing that i know and sure about this chapter is Unohana use her Bankai just to wake up Zaraki from asleep and to bring back his power…and Unohana already state that her sword is to rise Zaraki power and not to kill him….also i think Unohana’s Bankai healing Zaraki unconsciousness and that why she said “play time is over” after she reveal her bankai and then after Zaraki seen Unohana’s Bankai, he realize that he as been asleep all this time and thank Unohana because help him from asleep all time….

    To me that is so, when Ichigo fight with Kenpachi, Kenpachi’s reiatsu had a skull so I guess when he fought for the first time as a child Unohana, Unohana’s powers have been transferred to seeing her, which Yachiru’s Bankai had the same appearance of skull, so I guess the only thing he did with his Bankai, was awaken the hidden powers of Kenpachi, in the act allegedly giving his life, now wait so powerful that it become Ichigo, Renji, Byakuya and Kenpachi, and see if Tite finally dares to show Bankai Ukitake, Kyoraku and Urahara who are the only captains who have not shown the Bankai.

        I want to see Hisagi’s bankai. Him being alive I hope he would fight. The way the captains reacted to him releasing his shikai state has to mean something. Also how his zanpakuto is shaped “to reap life itself” I’m expecting like a giant scythe or something. I mean a Death Reaper who’s Zanpakuto is meant to reap? seems powerful

    considering the name of her zanpakutou “purify the flesh”, it could means her bankai removed flesh and blood to make the enemy weakest by letting his bones unprotected and in exchange, affects the owner, makinhg the battle fiercer, and knowing Unohana’s brutality, seens pretty much something from her personality.

    Though, if Zaraki really kills Unohana for good, I’ll only say one thing:

    WHAT A WASTE! It’s a WAR and they want to make the two most powerfull assassins kill each other so one of them becomes stronger? Geez, this way their stupidity will cost more lifes!

      agreed, although you mentioned that she’s brutal, I think she’s got a soft spot of Zaraki since he’s probably the only one who’s stronger than her. He’s probably the strongest shinigami out there. Hopefully Unohana plays with her Bankai later on, showing us how it’s really used against an enemy!

    Personally i don’t believe Unohana is died. She did let Zaraki stab her in the exact spot of were her scar is. I highly doubt that is enough to kill her. He did defeat her. Thats what he wanted, but not kill her. I don’t want Unohana to just he a stepping stone for Zaraki and die just like that. Its wrong and messed up. And who said Aizen was stronger then Unohana?? She just said she was stronger then every single Shinigami in history except for Zaraki. And Yamamoto. Also her Zanpakuto is confusing me. I heard from somewhere thats not my idea but i agree with it. That Her Shikai, Minazuki is not that giant green manta ray creature. That creature is the manifestation of Minazuki. Like its soul in its ture form. Like Toshiros Hiyorimaru is a giant ice dragon. So we have yet to see her Shikais true form. I believe healing is an after affect ability Minazuki has. She did say Bankai, but she called out Minazuki. Shikai and Bankai always have different names. They are never the same. I get the feeling that this bloody blade of hers is really Minazuki’s Shikai form. But i could be wrong. Also Zaraki overpowered Unohana too easily. I doubt that was her Bankai. And that whole her Bankai being a Illusion type is kinda werid. Her Zanpakuto is a Kido type. I think what Zaraki was feeling was hi fear getting the better of him at first. Not Minazuki’s special ability. And all that blood, i have a high guess that her Shikai or Bankai of tat bloody blade is all the victims she has killed. Shinigami, Quincy, and Souls.

      If she’s not dead, the thing about a Kenpachi per generation would be good for nothing? It’s a war yes, but it’s also a Kenpachi situation, and only one can exist…

      She’s stronger than Yamamoto, and so is Zaraki (I think)
      hmm the translations mention that she mentioned that it was her Bankai, I hope what you said is true, but also hopefully that she’s alive to show us what the true extent of her bankai really is!

        Yes thank you. But hey. She has been alive these past centuries while all the other 9 Kenpachis were around. Plus Tite doesn’t really have any super powerful female characters other then Unohana, Senjumaru and Kirio. I don’t want her to die. They also need to explain her Zanpakuto. I really hope that wasn’t her Bankai. And i think your write about Unohana and Zaraki being stronger then Yamamoto. But i kinda doubt it. I do believe Unohana is strong enough to fight Juha alone. Zaraki should be when he finishes learning the Art of Killing. Whats your opinion on Aizen vs Unohana? I think Unohana would murder Aizen. Its just during the Winter War her job was to heal everyone, not battle. Tite did say when you see Unohana fight her hair will be down. THIS IS NOT FIGHTING. THIS IS SERIOUS DEATH TRAINING. So no, Unohana is not going to die.

          There’s Soi Fon too, agreed that she’s powerful and that she shouldn’t die but in the latest, it seems like she’s dead, and she accepts this death. The only play she could have a chance of coming back could be in the Palace where her master could saver her.
          Aizen vs Unohana, in a fair fight with no Zanpakuto’s, Unohana would kick Aizen’s ass! But Aizen’s Shikai is just way to powerful and he can get a lot of kills like so…
          Hmm I like your optimisms but I think Unohana received one of those death pages where Zaraki cries out to her and she dies… She could still be alive but also be dead… who knows..

    Honestly I think her bankai dealt in destroying the flesh, right down to the skin, including herself, then quickly healing with her left hand. Think about it, she’s been healing him this whole time when she fatally hurts him, this is no different. As to why I say it has acid properties, they were turned into skeletons for gods sake. Also, of course she was letting him win at first, it was to awaken his true, sleeping power, specifically stated in the manga. But after he conquered her bankai, that was the true test of his skill, since she said he was more powerful than her, even as a kid when they first met.

      They never truly say what her Bankai can do. It could be a chemical type Zanpakuto. Minazuki does mean purify the flesh. Who knows. They never said anything. Thats why she will not die! I wanna see what her Bankai and Shikai do! That feeling that Zaraki’s flesh being melted away was just his feeling of fighting Unohana again and being afraid. His feeling of finally knowing what battle is truly about. Also she can’t die. After ths whole war, who’s gonna fight Zaraki without dieing? Only Unohana. I love her so much. I seriously don’t believe her Shikai is reallythat manta ray. Her Shikai is the only one that becomes a living creature. The other is Mayuris Bankai. But thats it. Yes. Now Zaraki is truly the most powerful Shinigami of the entire Soul Society.

      He wasn’t being put to sleep, he was being killed, and healed really quickly… A lot of people think it was a type of illusion since Aizen saw Unohana in a type of bone mask of her face, so I think it could be related to that somehow… plus it seemed like he snapped out of it, proving that Unohana was overpowered by Zaraki’s powers…

      I’m sure Aizen felt their entire battle. During the same time Ichigo and Renji were training with Oetsu for 3 days until Ichigo failed. I always wondered how Aizen would deal with Retsu and Zaraki. When he revealed his true intentions to Retsu he immediately escaped. While with Toshiro he easily defeated him. So I bet he knew he couldn’t defeat her. Same with Yamamoto. I always wonder how Zaraki and Aizen would fight. I bet when the Vandereich switched the Seireitei with the Vandereich they already had a prison made of out high level Quincy Spells for Aizen when the switch happened. I kinda think when he does break out and find his zanpakuto back, he’ll release his Bankai and start defeating Captains and Sternritter alike until either Yhwach or Zaraki or Retsu come and defeat and kill him.

    I doubt that would happen but there’s a possibilty that aizen could be killed that easily because of his vast powers and zanpakuto that even ywach had been under controlled by it when he fought ichigo.. I think only ichigo has a high chance to defeat aizen because he hasnt seen aizen’s shikai yet so he wouldnt be in an illusion.. But there’s more i think there would be some time that ichigo and the captains will be needing aizen’s help to defeat the quincies how could aizen be any of help? Many possibilities.. Knowing kyoraku, a.)he would let aizen out of prison? B.) aizen could have already escaped because of the war and it weakened his bindings? C. Someone could have helped him to escape wat do u thnk guyz? Knowing the quincies last resort LETZT STIL there could be any possibilities that may happen.. Even all of bankais would be shown!!
