Bleach 561 gets underway by which Mask De Masculine is destroying anything and everything that is put in his path, from all the captains to vice captains. We see him destroy Kensei in his Bankai state, unfortunately we saw no Hollow Mask. Rojuro begins his attack by killing James. However after revealing his Bankai, Kinshara Butoudan (Golden Sands Dance Troupe), we see that Mask De Masculine quickly destroys his ear drums rendering the Bankai useless as it depends on sound. Rojuro is then quickly defeated by Mask De Masculine’s beam of light which cuts a perfect star on his chest. A second attack is stopped by the arrival of Renji, he reveals that he will be his next opponent and his villain.
Bleach 561 begins as Kensei goes on the offensive as he goes back towards Mask De Masculine, when he disappears from his sight, and appears with his Star Eagle Kick then his Star Headbutt, Kensei is really losing it at this point. Kensei tries to attack with his fists but don’t work as Mask De Masculine just catches his hands and tells him that he’ll have to do a lot better than that.
He twists Kensei’s arm and breaks it then ends him all the way down. After that he jumps on him feet first rendering him unconscious. He mentions that he doesn’t even need to do a ten count. Out of nowhere we see James being stabbed and cut in half, when Mask De Masculine mentions that he’s just killed an innocent fan. Rojuro mentions that as long as he’s not around he won’t be able to use his full power, Kensei gave him this opportunity to kill him thus he won’t let it go to waste.
Rojuro enables his Bankai by which arms appear above him as well as 17 different things by which they’re called the Kinshara Butoudan, Golden Sands Dance Troupe. Rojuro mentions that they’re the dance troupe of death. Their fee being his life, the first act is the Sea Drift by which they all get around him, and turn into water, then Rojuro enables Prometheus by which they turn into fire burning Mask De Masculine.
He is shocked and mentions that no Zanpakuto can use both water and fire, Rojuro mentions that its all an illusion and has the power to tug on humans heart. He is able to control sound. If his heart believes that it’s a flame, it’ll burn him and then die. The third act being the Ein Heldenleben, a Hero’s Life! However at this point we see Mask De Masculine shut his ears when Rojuro mentions that it won’t work when he sees that he’s destroyed his own eardrums.
Mask De Masculine quickly enables a light beam which has cut Rojuro in the chest creating a star shape through his body. He mentions for him to die a villain at the hands of a hero’s beam. He falls down, however he still breaths, Mask De Masculine goes for a second shot to kill him but Renji appears with his Shikai to which he uses it to block the attack! Mask De Masculine asks that he’s blocked his Star Flash, who he is. Renji mentions that he will be his next opponent and the villain. Bleach 561 ends here.
What an awesome chapter, we’ll finally see the awesome power which Renji has obtained by going to the palace. I’m just shocked to see such a Stern Ritter defeat two captains which have the capabilities of using their Hollow Masks, it’s shocking that they’ve not used it yet! I can’t wait to see what Renji does during the next Bleach 562 chapter.
