Bleach 656 see’s some back story to both Gerard and Pernida as we see Gerard destroying everything in his path, but Askin traps Ichigo, Orihime and Chad with his abilities when Yoruichi “God of Thunder” appears and shows off her abilities dealing a critical hit onto Askin, is he down?
Bleach 656 begins as Gerard runs through the Vandenreich kingdom destroying anything and everything he can see as he laughs. All while Askin looks at him mentioning that he’s finally unleashes his Schrift. On top of which he knows that Lille got his ass handed to him.
On top of which, he thinks that Gerard probably doesn’t know that Lille has been defeated. Maybe he should tell him a little about the Schutzstaffel (SS). Lille was the leader of the SS, he was the first Quincy to be bestowed with a Schrift by Yhwach, so his position is unwavering and ironclad.
The the two others, Pernida and Gerard already had powers before they were ever with Yhwach. All of a sudden, they were given Schrifts for their work and status. However, there was rumour going around mentioning that Pernida’s true identity is the Spirit King’s Left Hand, while Gerard is actually the Spirit King’s Heart!
He doesn’t even know how it all began, but still it’s all just rumours he mentions. The asks if Ichigo is even listening. He looks upon Ichigo who has collapsed in front of him. He mentions that it might be hard for him to do so with his face planted on the ground like that.
Orihime and Chad appear as Chad smashes the ground with his Brazo Derecha De Gigante! However, seconds later, they’re also trapped in Askin’s area of effect ability. He mentions that he’s poisoning them with a large amount of Reishi. He mentions that he’s lowering any resistance he chooses of anyone in a radius.
This time he has chosen Reishi, thus he is making sure that they’re overcome by the dense Reishi in Wahrwelt. He can thus kill by causing lethal dosage of any element that he can manipulate. In turn he has to take in a great amount of whatever it is he wants to manipulate, for example if it was blood, then he’d have to drink a lot of it.
However, his stomach is about to explode from all the cafe au lait. Yoruichi appears behind him. She hands of a rock, however she is not touching the ground. From what she can make out, by stopping them from moving, he can just kill them however he pleases.
Askin is quickly reminded of Bambietta as she is also quite similar. He swings his foot to hit her, but t misses. Yoruichi asks if he thinks that his opponents are really that beneath him. Askin mentions no, and how he just likes to defeat his opponents with a little elegance. After doing what he does, and breaking people’s neck, it seems more suited to Bambi and Yoruichi, he mentions.
Yoruichi powers up as her electrical powers begin to spark and forms a wing. She mentions that she doesn’t know who this Bambi is, but the point he’s making is that it seems that it might be how the beautiful do things. Askin mentions that both Bambi and her are beautiful, but a woman’s value isn’t in her superficial qualities.
Askin springs out his bow and shoots two arrows towards Yoruichi. Yoruichi bounces to act quickly as she holds one of the arrows and shoots it back towards Askin.He’s shocked after he’s pushed away from his ability and into the air. Yoruichi mentions that they’re in a hurry and thus enables her Shunko Raijin Senkei (God of Thunder’s War Form. She unleashes it onto Askin, Bleach 656 ends here.
A fantastic chapter, Yoruichi unleashes her awesome power while Askin poisons Ichigo, Orihime and Chad. And the Heart of the Spirit King, Gerard, goes mad laughing and destroying everything he faces. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 657, when we’ll see even more awesomeness.
