Bleach 671 covers all three Shinigami’s, Toshiro, Zaraki and Byakuya as they all fight against Gerard. While Toshiro uses his abilities in his new Adult-Body, he freezes Gerard in an effort to stop him but escapes quickly. This is when Zaraki and Byakuya step in to defeat him all at once. Byakuya even uses his Bankai in order to pierce through Gerard.
Bleach 671 begins as Toshiro talks to Byakuya telling him that once all the ice flowers falls, this is when his Daiguren Hyourinmaru will be complete. His power is still not mature enough to use Hyourinmaru to it’s fullest potential. It seem as he matured, so did his own body. He even mentions that he’s not a fan of his adult self either.
Gerard asks who he is, he mentions his name as Gerard goes on to further mention that he’s already released his Bankai so this must be some sort of transformation. Either way, it’s how it should have been. He is better suited to be his opponent. Gerard attacks but misses as Toshiro just moves around.
Gerard throws his shield but Toshiro just freezes it. Gerard then swings his sword but Toshiro just cuts it in half. Gerard mentions that him even touching his Hoffnung will cut himself. But Toshiro mentions that once it has been frozen, it’s function will cease to activate. His hope will be suspended. Next up, Gerard goes on to use his own Quincy Bow in order to attack against Toshiro.
But out of nowhere, we see Toshiro use his own power when he uses his Shikai Hyouketsu. He can freeze all matter before him, including Earth, Wind, Air and Fire. He is able to use it within three seconds. However, Gerard quickly escapes and grabs onto the body of Toshiro. He mentions that he cannot be imprisoned by the likes of a Shinigami, and thus he shall crush him.
However, Zaraki gets up and grabs onto the foot of Gerard. Seems like Zaraki has gained his consciousness and able to use his powers. Further to this, we see Toshiro gain wings and mentions that he won’t be able to do anything as he keeps on unleashing his powers upon Gerard as it continuous to freeze.
Whilst he tries to get up, we see him even more frozen. Out of nowhere, he’s surrounded by a thousand swords when we see and hear Senki Senbonzakura Kageyoshi, Ougi, Ikka Senjinka. The thousands of swords surrounding Gerard eye up on Gerard as they begin their wild and savage dance. Bleach 671 ends here.
A wonderful chapter if I say so myself. Seems like all three are fighting together in their own way. Trying to push against Gerard is exhausting for all three, but they seem to be going in the right direction when it comes to defeating them. Nevertheless, I can’t wait to see what Gerard comes up with next against these three in next week’s Bleach 672.
