Bleach 570 shows the magnificent and beautiful Bankai of Rukia. Although beautiful, it’s a very dangerous Bankai to which Byakuya warns her if she doesn’t use it correctly everything around her could be destroyed including herself. Both Rukia and Byakuya head towards to fight and kill more Quincy’s. Isane and Yachiru are both trying to heal the injured captains but a Quincy, Gwenhael, appears out of nowhere to which he has the ability to vanish from sight and their consciousness.
Bleach 570 begins when the story of As Nodt is shown whilst he’s in a hospital. He begins to think that he’s finding it painful, and that he hasn’t gone to either Heaven or Hell. He begins to find himself scared that he doesn’t want to die. Juha Bach (Yhwach) appears and mentions that he seems to be the only survivor, then mentions that he’s going to give him power.
The power given to As Nodt seems to be helping. We return to Rukia’s White Mist Sentence Bankai to which we see As Nodt’s head literally cut in half from which he’s whole body is frozen solid! It begins to crack and we see Rukia standing with her Bankai activated! She holds a magnificent sword which looks very familiar to her other ones but this one seems to be made of Ice and is translucent.
We finally see that Rukia’s Bankai has completely changed her form, she now wears a long dress which is similar to a kimono, on both shoulders she has spiral objects, it is also shown on the ends on her clothing such as behind the neck and on the front too. It’s not a massive dress, so it only comes up to her feet, it seems breezy and allows her to move around freely too. She has a flower pattern on her chest as well as a crown type object surrounding the back of her head. She also has a massive bow on her back.
Rukia seems calm and without emotion, we see a crack on her arm to which it seems that if she melts too quickly she will crack too, that is why she must to it calmly. Byakuya tells her this, he then tells her that it was a splendid Bankai! However it is a very difficult one to control, the slightest of mistakes could kill her, handle it carefully and never be rash.
Remember that a sword held by someone who is about to die will never be able to protect anything. Rukia begins to slowly melt when Byakuya mentions for them to go quickly to protect Soul Society! She agrees and quickly goes. Yachiru appears while Isane is heading the others. She had gone to bring some beds from which the captains could rest comfortably in.
Yachiru is told to put her voice down, she also mentions that she’s been around and it’s not dangerous at all since all she needs to find out now is beds and medicines and just run away. Isane realizes that if this is what she’s been doing that it’s a miracle. Isane hears a voice to which it mentions that it must be a miracle that they haven’t found them!
The voice mentions that it’s behind Isane, she looks and see’s an old man. Yachiru quickly appears and attacks the Quincy in the face! However as she does he disappears. Yachiru mentions that she’s pretty sure that she got a hit, then remembers what she was trying to get a hit, it’s as though she has forgotten what she was trying to attack.
Seconds later Yachiru is hit on the side of the face to which she falls on the ground. He mentions that it’s impossible for them to hit him as he can disappear within seconds. He mentions that he’s “V” for Vanishing Point, Gwenhael is his name. He is able to vanish from their eyesight and from their conscience completely. Bleach 570 ends here.
An awesome chapter and it seems that we may finally get to see Yachiru take part a fight, and I’m happy to say that I’ve been waiting for this to take place for a while, to see her Shikai as well as a possible Bankai is awesome! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 571 to see the awesome continuation of this!
