Chapter 577: Blade
WEll, to sum up this weeks chapter in as few words as possible it would be something like.
‘Holy fucking Shikai’
Before we get to that we basically see everybody else in Sereitei react to Gremmy’s insanity.
Some Shinigami have an idle hope that the dome around Sereitei, the Shakonmaku will destroy this foreign object. There is ofcourse no way in hell it would be capable of destroying something so massive.
By sheer mass, the meteorite just plows through the barrier like its nothing. Even Haschwalt panics at the impeding doom ordering some randoms soldier to protect the King.
The latter seems to casually be observing the whole scene from his throne room.
After all that we go back to the Gremmy duo who goes on a little rant. Telling Zaraki that if he could hypothetically killed Gremmy it wouldn’t make the Meteorite disappear. It is already reality. But as it is Gremmy imagined that everyone will vanish and he shall
be the last one standing. He seems pretty confident that this fight is over.
Well, in the picture above you see Zaraki’s face with a full-on combat stiffy. I don’t think I ever saw him so exited. He isn’t at ‘wits end’ at all. Even going as far as telling Gremmy that he just ran out of tricks to defeat Zaraki.
The captain jumps into the air blade at the ready and then as he appears as a small black spot in front of meteorite he calls forth his Zanpaktou.
With one powerfull strike he smashes the meteorite to bits. Gremmy is at a loss for words as his eyes lay upon Zaraki and his Zanpaktou.
The look fits the man like a glove and guys, it’s no Bankai. Unlike Ichigo, Zaraki never even knew the name of his blade until after his fight against Unohana. The blade never went in a Shikai state. It would never go Bankai after Zaraki just learned his name.
Anyway, it looks freaking awesome! I wonder if it has some special attacks or just amplifies Zaraki’s native strength.
