Bleach 637 see’s the real identity of Pernida to be the Soul King’s Left Arm, compared to Ukitake’s Kamikake. While Mayuri battles Mayuri, he gets even more giddy and happy to see that he can experiment on his left arm as much as he wants. While this goes on, Nemu notices that Mayuri could possibly have changed.
Bleach 637 begins as Mayuri notices that the drug he gave to Zaraki should have paralyzed him, but he’s shocked that he can still move his eyes. Nevertheless, he will go on ahead and improve Ashisogi Jizou’s power before stabbing him again. In the end, beside the enemy’s power, he also made him discover a way to improve Ashisogi Jizou, he feels gratitude towards him.
Ikkuka feels anger as Mayuri sent Zaraki against Pernida on purpose. He was curious about the enemy’s abilities and wanted to fight him alone, and Zaraki was in the way of that. Yumichika mentions that his captain is always the same, while Nemu mention that she hopes that he is, Yumichika asking what she means by this, she replies with just exactly what she said.
Mayuri mentions that thanks to Zaraki’s sacrifice, he was able to figure out how his powers work. He’s almost on the verge of crying because of this touching sacrifice, noble victories are always preceded by noble sacrifices. In other words, he should show some respect for this touching sacrifice by donating his own body for his experiments.
Pernida begins to get angry, his clock gets to rip apart and do so in the middle, we quickly see a hand pop out, with chains on them while having two eyes in the palm of that hand. Mayuri quickly notices that he reckons that this is the Soul King’s left arm. Pernida breaks the chains when the rest of the arm comes out from the back, it raises itself.
Ikkaku notices how it’s a massive arm, then asking if the Soul King was this big, while Mayuri mentions that he doesn’t know as he’s never met him. However, the reiatsu is almost the same as the one he sampled from Ukitake when he lost consciousness. If Ukitake had a contract with the Soul King’s right arm, it’s not weird that the left arm too would have its own existence somewhere.
It also has eyes on it, which matches the eyes on Ukitake’s Kamikake, Mayuri goes on to mention that he guesses that it might be wrong to call the left arm “one eye”, however Pernida jumps into action revealing more of its nerves by trying to attack Mayuri, whilst this happens, we see a balloon which appears and stretches out, when Pernida touches it, it hurts him.
Mayuri mentions that there is only one thing he doesn’t understand, why the Soul King’s left arm would be working for Yhwach. Nevertheless, compared to his happiness, that is nothing but a tiny issue. Pernida speaks its first words mentioning Happiness. Mayuri gets even more happy when he mentions what organs he must be using to speak, so many secrets to discover.
Mayuri explains to Ikkaku why he’s so happy right now by mentioning that he’s found a never-before-seen object to observe. It keeps on betraying and lifting his expectations. How could he not be as happy as he is now. Pernida feels the pain when Mayuri calls him Soul King’s left arm, he tells Mayuri that his name is Pernida! Bleach 637 ends here.
Pernida shows its true power, on top of which the hand and eyes have gained the ability to speak which reveals the truth about his appearance and name. Furthermore, it seems that Mayuri will have fun playing with Pernida. However, next week’s Bleach 638 will see a new development in the war.
