Bleach 649 see’s a possible end between Lille v Shunsui as Shunsui does his best to end the life of Lille while noticing that his Zanpakuto, Sakuranosuke has appear. While this occurs, we see Lille fall deeper and deeper into Shunsui’s Stage Three, however releases his power which strikes down Shunsui, even after his head has been cut right off.
Bleach 649 begins as as Lille begins to realise the situation he’s in, realizing that he cannot fight what is happening, he falls deeper and deeper into the sea created by Shunsui. Even after trying to swim through it, nothing works. Shunsui tells Lille that reaching cold water is the death of anyone as escape from it begins to slim down.
Someone else begins to talk mentioning a man makes a promise but doesn’t keep it, and a woman that couldn’t forget her love for him. We finally see the personification of Shunsui’s Zanpakuto, the same as within the Zanpakuto Arc. We’re revealed to Sakuranosuke, while Shunsui greets her as Sakuranosuke .
Sakuranosuke mentions that he seems to be getting quite familiar with her, as she mentions that he only comes to play when he feels like it. He asks for her to forgive him as she notices how his kimono’s all torn up. This is what will happen when he wears something that belong to another woman, he calls her mean for just saying that.
She might be mean but she is still his zanpakuto, she has taken every whim and fancy of his and have sworn to be by his side till the end. Lille asks who he’s talking to. Lille asks if he had though that he’d had actually won, and killed him. As if something like a Shinigami’s Bankai could even kill him. Lille goes for an attack when Shunsui steps in as he mentions that the cruelty of a woman’s love that goes unknown to a man.
And what shines at the end of the tunnel is the white thread that symbolizes regret, the least he can do is to cut the thread that is circling around Lille. Shunsui finally mentions that this will be the end of Lille, the end and last stage of his attacks. Thread cutting scissors on a bloodied throat. Shunsui steps in and cuts right through Lille’s head.
Lille explodes as he falls deeper and deeper to the depths of Shunsui’s Bankai. Shunsui also bleeds as he falls down on Sakuranosuke ‘s lap. To think he’d get a chance to sleep on her lap he mentions, using his Bankai once in a while might be good, he goes for a kiss when he tries to poke his eye out. He dodges when he mentions that it’s the only eye he has left now.
Sakuranosuke mentions that they look the same now, it’s strange. But either way, they’ve won, it seems that she’s being very docile today. Shunsui goes to say something important when a large light pierces through Shunsui’s body! Even without a head, Lille Barro still lives, he creates a head made of light as he mentions that a Shinigami’s Bankai isn’t something that can kill a messenger of God! Bleach 649 ends here.
A magnificent chapter indeed, and with no end to Lille Barro, after such a powerful attack from Shunsui, he’s definitely in trouble. It seems like Lille will most likely kill Shunsui during this battle. Nevertheless, this is Shunsui we’re talking about. I can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 650!
