Bleach 588 see’s Giselle turning the late Bambietta Basterbine into what she calls a zombie, her eyes appear to look dead as she is being controlled, while at the same time, the first to arrive Kirinji uses his attacks on Yhwach, Jugram and Uryu to defend the King’s Palace. We also see a little banter whereby Giselle jokes with Ikkaku for them to cut her and feel her true power.
Bleach 588 begins as Yhwach, Jugram and Uryu all reach at the entrance of the King’s Palace using the light which helped them get there, they practically destroy the entrance. All of the Royal Guards hear the noise that is made. Yhwach gets to the Palace, to which Jugram quickly gives his deepest condolences. Yhwach asks what wrong with him, all of a sudden he’s begun to feel emotion for looking upon decrepit grave stone.
Jugram say’s that he’s sorry then begins to call upon his soldiers to which they’re quickly defeated by Kirinji Tenjiro who asks them what they’re doing, they’re not welcome there. Yhwach shouts at him mentioning that he thinks that he can impede on him with his power.
Kirinji mentions that he wouldn’t be standing there if he wasn’t confident. He then brings out a large amount of water to which it covers the soldiers Jugram brought a while ago. It covers them to which he then raises the temperature, it’s water that leeches out their blood and reiatsu. He jokes with them if it’s too hot just say the world.
He then takes out the small sheath out of the knife he has to reveal his own, he jumps up to which he then uses his Kinpika to attack a none moving Yhwach. At the battle, Giselle is faced by both Ikkaku and Yumichika to which she mentions that they wouldn’t attack and unarmed girl like her would they.
To which she begins to say it in a way that is making her ask for it, Yumichika works out that since she is doing so, she must has some kind of trick to which will happen once she is killed or something. He gives an example to which it correct whereby if a splash of blood from her wound gets on a person, she could possible get control over him.
Giselle jokes around mentioning that something like that is so off from her power. On top of which she goes ahead to say that killing her is not a good idea. Yumichika goes on ahead to try and solve her little performance, to which he goes on ahead to say that Giselle is really a boy.
She is so shocked that she doesn’t know what to do, to which Yumichika mentions that he knew she was hiding something. To which she also smells really funny. However she shouts Bambietta’s name and she comes to her from the top, she says that she is sorry that she kept her waiting, to which she tells Bambietta to go ahead and slaughter Ikkaku and Yumichika. Bleach 588 ends here.
A great and fantastic chapter, a lot of great things happened, to which I’m sure that Ikkaku and Yumichika will face a great battle ahead, to which now it seems like it’s a 9 vs 6 battle. Nevertheless, it’s going to be an awesome battle and I can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 589.
