Bleach 609 reveals Yhwach’s “A” to be Zenchizennou or All-Knowing/Almighty, he evades Ichibei’s near death attack to prove that Yhwach is all-knowing. Ichibei delivers his Shinuchi/Bankai to be Shirafude Ichimonji to crush the body of Yhwach, however he uses his powers to come back.
Bleach 609 begins as Yhwach faces Ichibei’s attack, he’s covered completely with the blackness from Ichibei, he begins to talk about how he will give him a new name. Ichibei releases his Shinuchi (or True Hit) mentioning his Shirafude Ichimonji (or White Brush).
Ichibei mentions that the recent terminology for Shinuchi would be Bankai, he releases it, then mentioning that before there were any kind of Bankai’s, the first evolved Zanpakuto had evolved. His blade had began, it gave the ability to give a new name to everything that had been blackened out by Ichimonji.
While he mentions this he draws the name Kuroari (or Black Ants) for Yhwach to have as his name. He was formally named to be Yhwach, not Kuroari. Thus then mentions that his current abilities will reflect those that are equivalent to the ants crawling on the ground.
Yhwach mentions that he’s gone too far. Ichibei says that this is as far as he will be going. This is how far behind his abilities have gotten, he will carry the lives of all the Shinigami he’s taken and so it’s as far as his life will go.
He stomps Yhwach like an ant to which it breaks the bridge he was standing on. Haschwalth looks back as his King falls down, then calls him the great king of the insects, he says his farewell then crushes him once more.
Yhwach keeps falling as he mentions that he did not expect that he could have seen this far ahead, with his eyes in their closed state. He begins to change and somehow appears behind Ichibei, as Ichibei turns around he’s stabbed with a weapon from Yhwach to which he quickly breaks after spilling a little blood.
Ichibei notices that the name he gave Yhwach begins to disappear, as Ichibei tries to battle back, Haschwalth begins to explains that the power of Yhwach allows him to understand all things he sees from any given perspective, as such it makes him impossible to best. Haschwalth reveals the “A” of Yhwach stands for The Almighty! Depending on translations, it could also mean All-Knowing. Bleach 609 ends here.
A fantastic chapter, Yhwach and Ichibei are going crazy battling each other from point to point. Now seems like the time that Yhwach will battle back and show Ichibei what he’s made off. We could see some fantastic battles next, can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 610 when the battle continues on.
