Chapter 606: Devine Division
So, this week is very interesting, on several front. The battle between the two elders is awesome and we get introduced to a new character from Sereitei. What about that!
This week we get reminded of the battle that is heating up between Ichibei and Ywach, before we go down to Seiretei, we see an unknown person hopping around the building carrying a large bag(or sorts) around yelling to her sister.
In the meantime Urahara seems busy drawing lines with his cane/zankpaktou in the ground between the rubble. It seems insignificant, but nothing her ever does actually is. ANyway, he gets interrupted(rudely) by an old familiar, his former lt. and her Vaizard buddies.
It quickly becomes clear that they were supposed to go up there to the Soul Palace with Ichigo and Yoruichi. I find it a bit interesting she mentions her specifically, also asking Urahara if she went off because her ‘told her already’. I guess Urahara/Yoruichi rule34 is a go.
Hiyori is quite upset for letting them go without help. Even going as far as saying that Urahara deems them expandable as long as they slow down the enemy advance.
All this info about Yoruichi comes as quite a shock to our new friend. The young and quite emotional sister of Yoruichi. Shiouin Yuushirou. Apparently 23rd head of the Shihouin house. I wonder if she brought Yoruichi’s Zanpaktou(I’ve never seen her use or even carry one).
Not as much as the big bag Hiyori is carrying around, but hey.
Meanwhile, the battle is raging on. Ywach comments about the apparent weakness of Hyousube after blocking his attack. His brush however does not cut flesh, It cuts through the essence of ‘name’. The name ‘Arm’ being a mere shadow of its former self. His arms only capable of half of what they could do.
His physical strength has been cut in half. As do his abilities. The Quincy King that is now only half as strong as he used too, facing the man he hates the most, the leader of the Shinigami(Yes, that is what Hyousube said himself).
It seems however, the King still has plenty of strength to pull from. Maybe he will simply take more from the Quincy down below.
