Bleach 638 continues the battle between Mayuri vs Pernida, we see Pernida try to use his hands and nerves in order to manipulate inorganic material to catch Mayuri out, he does and forces Mayuri to explodes his armor revealing whats under his mask to be tube like hair and ears. Mayuri explodes Pernida’s pinky finger as a sample when it also comes to life.
Bleach 638 begins with Mayuri showing him his hand and asking what he’s just said. Pernida mentions that his name is not left arm, his name is Pernida Parnkgjas, Mayuri mentions that it’s a long name. Mayuri then mentions that he is the one who found him, so he has the right to name him, but if Pernida says it himself, then he can make an exception.
However, he will decide the spelling of his name. Pernida mentions that he doesn’t understand what he’s saying, what he does not understand usually mean are bad things. He mentions that he is the enemy, someone who says bad things towards Quincy’s.
He shall not forgive him, when he sends his nerves towards the ground and creates an arm around it, this shows Mayuri that Pernida can also control inorganic materials with his nerves. He didn’t expect this and finds it something to say that he’s impressed. Mayuri smiles when we see a page with just Mayuri’s crazy face, being malice and in total comedy.
Mayuri moves away from the arm, then uses his arm to pull himself towards the top of a building, however the nerves arrive by him in the building and is forced to move away from the building he’s climbing. The previous arm is also there, both arrive and crush him wherever he is.
There is a huge explosion when we see that Mayuri is fine, just that armor reacts by exploding. Mayuri falls to the ground when he notices that Pernida’s nerves are there, this is when Mayuri shows his new ability where he is able to float and fly using a Quincy ability.
Mayuri mentions that it’s a a Quincy ability referred to as Sky-Walking technique used by them, called the Hirenkyaku as named by Souken and Uryu Ishida. The real name by the Quincies might be a little different, but anyways Mayuri mentions that he can cover the ground with nerves, it is just meaningless if he doesn’t step on any of them.
Next up, Mayuri launches a slug like thing which appears from Mayuri’s pocket gadget where it circles Pernida’s pinky finger, and quickly explodes as Mayuri mentions that he shall now be taking a sample. It lands on the ground as Mayuri mentions that the finger needs to preserved, he puts a liquid on there.
It might sting a little but later on he shall put it in a water tank to preserve it until he can experiment and do his research on. However, out of nowhere we see an eye appear out of nowhere, and then the nerves quickly attached itself to Mayuri and bends his own pinky finger back.
Mayuri’s arm explodes in order to prevent Pernida, Mayuri tries to remove his nerves but then Mayuri shows his crazy face when he mentions that he’s rearranged the position of his nerves, blood vessels and muscles. Mayuri tells him that don’t just think that he can control his body so easily. Bleach 638 ends here.
A fantastic and impressive chapter indeed, and it seems that after getting hit a few times by Pernida, Mayuri is finally getting serious about this. On top of which Pernida has a lot of moves up their sleeve. On top of which the battle seems to just getting started, can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 639 chapter.
