Bleach 595 begins as Pepe goes on ahead to fight Byakuya using Hisagi to defeat him, however he’s injured when Pepe uses his God’s Love to transform into Cupid! Pepe unleashes his power to look similar to cupid with a bow and arrow to hit Byakuya. Kensei and Rose both arrive with dark shadows over their eyes, it seems that Mayuri may have done something to them.
Bleach 595 begins as Hisagi goes on to attack Byakuya with his zanpakuto but ultimately fails as he’s unable to get a hit on Byakuya. Pepe is saddened as conflicts are always such sad things because there is always love involved. He mentions that every conflict happens because of love. Any kind of love will drive a person to such conflicts and saddening.
Pepe mentions that for that reason, conflicts are beautiful in themselves. Byakuya strikes his sword and hits Hisagi thus he falls. Byakuya mentions if he is done because he’s done with Hisagi a while ago. Byakuya goes onto mentioning that his ability just allows for him to control his opponents, he his subjects are immobile then there is no problem.
All that is left is to crush the manipulator and the puppet strings will be permanently served. Pepe mentions that he’s very clever then shapes his hands to become a love mark and shoots however it misses but he keeps on attacking.
It even follows him, however Byakuya just uses his sword to stop one of them. Byakuya mentions that even if he preaches love, he cannot manipulate those who are heartless. Pepe mentions that this is correct however he should have realized that Zanpakuto’s have a soul and heart to which he uses as it quickly attacks Byakuya.
This is why he took no Bankai’s during the battle, he has love on his side and thus can always take the hearts of any zanpakuto. Byakuya throws his Zanpakuto and thus gives Pepe a chance to allows Hisagi to use his own sword. Both the sword that loves him and the shinigami that loves him will fight for him.
Pepe mentions that no matter what, love will always drives them to do and overcome anything. Hisagi goes on the attack while Byakuya keeps on defending. He thinks that there is only so much he can do with a Zanpakuto with an Hakuda.
If he used anything more than Kidou, he would probably end up killing him. Had it been his arm that was manipulated, he could just have cut it off, it was careless of him to hesitate over breaking Senbonzakura and option to drop it instead.
However out of nowhere Pepe hits Byakuya at the back of his shoulder and still blocks the attack to which Pepe asks if he’s heart truly is devoid of love. Pepe asks him that his true purpose is now to die for him. He creates a massive heart with his hand, as he reaches the end of the heart he transforms into another form as he’s nearly naked.
He seems to be wearing diapers and has large wings as it could be his Vollstandig form, God’s Love! He looks very familiar to a cupid. He mentions to take a good hard look at his body, he uses his Love Rope to hit Byakuya from the shoulder once more as he shouts to Hisagi to stop, as he’d like to kill him with his love.
Pepe brings out a bow and arrow from his mouth, he points the arrow at him to which he mentions that it’s his ultimate weapon when a kick arrives from out of nowhere. Byakuya notices Kensei and Love together. They’re both seem to have some kind of black shadow like across the top of their head pointing down to their eyes. Did Mayuri do this? Bleach 595 ends here.
A crazy and awesome chapter, it seems that this war is truly awesome as a lot of it seems to be being skipped as it’s most likely to continue in the anime depending on how it goes. Either way, can’t wait for the next Bleach 596 chapter as she explore if Kensei and Love are truly good or bad.
