Bleach 650 reveals the secret behind Shunsui and Nanao’s mother as he finally returns her zanpakuto back to her, Kyoukotsu. While Shunsui is geared towards giving up, Nanao appears and wakes him up from death, Lille attacks but they escape into Lille’ shadow to talk for a bit. Lille grows a long neck with a Owl’s face.
Bleach 650 begins as Lille begins to grow a head, it has a long neck with a face similar to that of a owl. Shunsui begins to talk mentioning that he thought that he would die after cutting his head off, but it seems like he’s got him good. Lille mentions that this is what despair looks like, no weapon can kill him, and even if his head is lopped off with his reiatsu, it won’t kill him.
Lille mentions that he is immortal and invincible, he is the one, the chosen one that will serve god and erase all the sinners that dare go against god and his messenger. Lille grows a hand, raises it up and causes a large light to flash through the whole island they’re on.
It splits a part some of the island but Shunsui just runs off once more. Lilly is shocked to see that he still has energy to move and escape his divine retribution, even with the damage he’s taken. Nothing less is expected of a captain commander. Sakuranosuke talks to Shunsui as she mentions to escape with him.
They are up against someone who survived the karematsu-shinjuu, she has run out of ideas, he’s already fought and is hanging on his last breath and consciousness. She mentions that no one would blame him if he escaped, she asks for him to come with her, she tells him to close his eyes and she will take him.
He begins to close his eyes when Nanao shows up and tells him to wake up. He looks at her and realises that she’s not been affected by his Bankai, further to this, he begins to spew out blood. Nanao tells him not to talk. She quickly mentions for him to take her zanpakuto.
She mentions that this isn’t the time to hesitate, and that he should forget the promise he made with her mother. Lille appears as he mentions that it’s getting a little noisy there, and as he notices that the vice-captain seems to have come back. It seems that she doesn’t appreciate the fact that he put his life on the line for her. He unleashes his attack but Shunsui calls forth Okyo (or Okyou).
Lille notices that Shunsui and Nanao have escaped again, while his eyes are getting dry. They try up every time he looks at something. It seems that Shunsui and Nanao have entered Lille’s shadow. Shunsui asks about her knowing about her own mother, to which she says that she does, this whole time.
Shunsui mentions that he can never win against her. And thus he has nothing else he can do but to return her zanpakuto to Nanao. We’re revealed that Nanao’s Zanpakuto is none other than Kyoukotsu, who appear behind Nanao. Bleach 650 ends here.
This episode was fantastic, and really fun to read. I think Kubo is having a lot of fun with Lille, as he is cut apart, he just grows something new. I think Kubo’s creative nature is playing a large part in Lille. I can’t wait to see what happens in next week’s Bleach 651, when this battle goes on.
