Bleach 597 shows the arrival of Yhwach, Jugram and Ishida as they’re all unhurt from Kirinji’s attacks on them, Senjumaru appears and attacks Yhwach to notice that he’s unhurt. We also see Liltotto and Pepe begin their fight as she is pissed off that he took control of her friend. Ichigo also begins to shoot off to the Royal King’s Palace to battle Yhwach, Jugram and Ishida.
Bleach 597 begins as Liltotto fights talks to Pepe as he mentions that he’s happy for her. She begins to walk towards him when he begins to back off. She mentions that he tries to kill them, to which she mentions that she expects him to now take responsibility. Seems like Pepe has finally been killed by his own comrade.
We see Kirinji here exhausted unable to understand how he’s not even got an attack on Yhwach even once. Yhwach mentions that he seems to be unable to attack when he mentions for him to let him pass. Kirinji tries to attack once more when we see that his attack has swerved and is nowhere near Yhwach.
Yhwach has not dodged or used a illusion, he can’t understand whats going on. We then see Senjumaru Shutara appear with her own soldiers behind her. She mentions that it’s been a long time since they last saw each other. She then mentions how he dares to appear there without an invitation. Plus he must feel full of himself after defeating Yamamoto.
He begins to climb the stairs when she mentions that he is insolent. He is quickly surrounded by her soldiers to which they attack however their swords are quickly redirected to a side. She notices that he didn’t dodge, and asks herself why her swords are unable to attack him.
We see a new Stern Ritter appear to which he mentions who the real insolent person is, we see Stern Ritter W, the Wind, Nianzol Weizol. He mentions that their attacks will just bend and not hit.Elsewhere we see a canon pop out of the ground where Urahara and the others, including Ichigo are there. He counts down for them to which are then shot to the Royal Palace. Bleach 597 ends here.
A great chapter with some great action, Ichigo is once again getting closer and closer to the battle that we’d like to see. However I’d also like to see more of the other battles and whats going on elsewhere. I can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 598, when we see what happens next.
