Fans of Bleach have gotten the chapter a little early with chapter Bleach 652. This chapter largely surrounds Nanao and Shunsui along with Lille as we visit the past to see what really happened. If you don’t want to know what happens, stop reading here, if you don’t mind the spoilers, keep on reading.
Bleach 652 seems to have gone out to fans early, let’s begin by posting up the four images which concern the chapter, seen below:
Bleach 652 begins with Nanao as a child, she overhears her mother talking to a man with a hairpin. This man being Shunsui. She notices that her mother gives Shunsui Hakkyouken for safe keeping.
When Nanao gets a little older, she becomes a Shinigami even after she was never given a Asauchi. She is quickly accepted into Squad 8 thanks to her Kidou mastery alone. This is where she meets the man with the hairpin, it being Shunsui.
Sometime later we see Shunsui and Ukitake talk about Nanao’s mother execution as an order comes in from the Central 46, for stealing the Hakkyouken treasure sword.
We return to the present when we see Nanao use her sword to cut off Lille’s arm with the sword she holds. However, it’s not enough kill him. While Lille powers up for a new attack against her, Shunsui steps in to help her out. Bleach 652 ends here.
Opinions? Post it down in the comment section below. When the chapter has been released properly, I will do another post for it as soon as I can, either being today or tomorrow.
