Bleach 636 see’s Mayuri vs Pernida after Zaraki’s arm is ripped off while both his feet take a hit by Pernida’s mysterious attack. Mayuri then stabs Zaraki in order to stop any more damage being hit towards him. Pernida takes a large hit by the hands of Mayuri after he uses his own techniques to scramble Pernida’s nerves, while we might see his true form up next.
Bleach 636 begins as the transformation of Pernida, Zaraki asks why his heads become large, to which Mayuri mentions that there must be a reason for why he’s heads so huge. Mayuri mentions that it’s quite creepy when Zaraki mentions that he’s saying that.
Nemu, Ikkaku and Yumichika talk about how they shouldn’t do anything as they’ll just get mad at them. Nemu mentions that Mayuri orders her to not move until he calls her, to which she then mentions that she doesn’t think Mayuri is struggling so much against the enemy thus she believes he won’t call her. It’s also the same for Zaraki as Ikkaku mentions.
Zaraki’s right arm begins to spin out of control as it begins to scrunch and getting bent even further. Zaraki holds his own arm with the other hand and pulls it off, he bleeds out then quickly takes his sword from the other hand. It folded up so much that it just turned into a pool of blood.
Mayuri tells Zaraki that him ripping his own arm off was a good idea, Zaraki asks if his praising or proving him. Zaraki doesn’t care at this point in time. Zaraki asks what his power is, to which Mayuri doesn’t know if it’s a question or him just talking to himself. Although what he can say now is not to get closer to him. Mayuri tells Nemu to tie Zaraki’s hands to stop his bleeding.
Zaraki asks how he can slash him up if he doesn’t get close. Mayuri asks if he’s asking another question, to which then answers by mentioning that there are other ways to fight without slashing. Zaraki then answers him by mentioning that he wasn’t asking him a question, he was just talking to himself, then quickly runs off.
He mentions that if he doesn’t understand his power, he’ll just cut him in half before he gets to him. Mayuri gets ready to attack soon too. Zaraki slashes his sword which hits right on Pernida’s head, it snaps and cracks however seconds later, Zaraki’s feet are disabled as they’re bent.
On top of which, we see Mayuri’s sword stab Zaraki from the back while his feet are scrunched up. Zaraki looks back calling Mayuri a bastard for what he did. Mayuri mentions that he already knew what kind of technique Pernida was using as he mentions that stopping the limbs, bones will break.
Mayuri enables Ashisogi Hizo Fear Factor 4 which releases a scream by his Zanpakuto which Nemu mentions that if they don’t cover their ears, they will go deaf in four seconds. Zaraki feels his power and collapses. Mayuri then settles that he’ll be fighting against Pernida.
Mayuri mentions that anesthetic kicking is more important than Zaraki’s brute strength. Then mentions that for Zaraki to turn into meatballs here would be a bit inconvenient for them. On top of which Mayuri mentions that for Zaraki to cut Pernida mentions that his nerves are the cause of all of this.
Mayuri mentions that he’s using his own nerves to infiltrate the enemies bodies and forcibly control their movements. He mentions that he’s saw it coming, he knows that Quincy can pump reishi into the blood vessels and make use of that power for themselves.
If so, then it’s no surprise that other beings can take an manipulate reishi as well. Whatever the process is, if the body is cut apart then it can mean something else. Pernida tries to attack with black ripe like features when Mayuri throws a water like substance mentioning for him not to be afraid.
Pernida doesn’t know what the liquid is, when it touches him, Pernida then feels a lot of damage as his own body switches gear. Mayuri asks if it hurts, the acid hardship of having your nerves exposed means that he can easily manipulate him. Mayuri mentions that he’s extremely interested in his power, he thinks he will explore his power more.
He has a ton of drugs that will work on the nerves of his, we see Pernida damaged as he pants and huff on the ground. It seems that he will soon show us his true form soon enough. Bleach 636 ends here.
A truly fantastic chapter as we see Mayuri finally showing us his awesome cool new tricks against some truly strong opponents. Can’t wait to see his Bankai once more as he uses it to truly mess around with Pernida’s nerves in next week’s Bleach 637.
