Bleach 573 shows the returns of the strongest Shinigami, Zaraki Kenpachi, who has finally now inherited the “Kenpachi” name, he begins his fights with what seems to be the strongest Stern Ritter within the Quincy! Isane finds out that Unohana has died by his hands, she feels relief as he’s inherited her name. The deadliest battle is about to begin as Gremmy quickly sets up a stage for them to fight in.
Bleach 573 as everyone notices that Zaraki has arrived, even Yachiru seems to be shocked at this and that he’s here. Isane asks how Unohana is, he quickly mentions that she is dead, she falls over while Zaraki mentions that she was killed by him, he hated her thus it shouldn’t matter if he killed her.
Isane mentions that she’s glad that since he killed her he should inherit her name, he mentions says yes to this. Gremmy appears mentioning that he’s a Kenpachi from Zaraki. He mentions that Zaraki looks strong just like he imagined. The ground begins to change and a large fortress like square building is created.
The two captains seem to have fallen off, Isane chases after them. Gremmy mentions that the stage is finally set, he mentions that he is Zaraki Kenpachi, it would be rude for him not to grace him with such a magnificent stage. Zaraki asks if this is some kind of magic or illusion to which Gremmy mentions that it’s not and is reality.
He mentions that he can turn fantasies into reality, he introduces himself as “The Visionary”. He mentions that he’s pretty lucky to fight him because of all the Stern Ritter’s there is no one stronger than him. He’s Stern Ritter V, Gremmy Thoumeaux.
Zaraki quickly jumps into action and sarcastically saying he doesn’t say. Zaraki strikes Gremmy with his sword but it doesn’t cut. Gremmy mentions that he turns his fantasies into reality, in this world the strongest power is the power of imagination, as an example he mentions just before Zaraki tried to cut him he turned his body into the hardest steel.
Zaraki pushes harder and strikes Gremmy, he mentions that if he’s harder than the toughest steel than he should have mentioned it sooner, then he would’ve planned to cut steel from the start. The cut Zaraki gets on him pushes Gremmy down while he bleeds a little.
Zaraki mentions that he doesn’t like the look on his face, did he imagine that he wouldn’t cut him. Zaraki quickly tells him that inside his imagination of his, there is nothing that can stop him and what he can cut due to the fact that he is a Kenpachi! Bleach 573 ends here.
A short chapter but a great one at that, Kenpachi seems to have finally inherited the power that I love to see him bring out. Plus I wonder what had happened with his zanpakuto and their chat. I’d like to see what had happened there soon. Nevertheless, I can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 574, when we see the fight continue between these two fighters.
