Chapter 615: All is Lost
Okay.. so… things are looking pretty bad. Though Karin seems pretty unfazed and keeps on cleaning the house. Oh well… good to see these two for a few panels.Especially since that little hinting to her seeing ghosts never went anywhere.
Then on the title panel, the Soul King is referred too as the Soubou (twin pupils) because… I don’t really know. Ichigo wonders why he couldn’t stop his body from cutting the Soul King and why he couldn’t simply let go of the blade.
For convenience sake(because that is what it kind of feels like) ywach can, apart from the seeing the future now he can also steal all power. A feature he displayed before when he re-distrubted the power to feed his elite guards that whiped out the rest of the Zero Squad.
Now he can also give his reiatsu to another. This feed the Quincy blood already flowing in Ichigo to cut down the Soul King in ‘anger and revenge’. Ichigo manages to break free from the hold and attacks the Ywach, who questions his reason to fight, as Soul Society has been eradicated.
The people down below wonder what is going, Kisuke’s keen mind realizes what has happened above. The crumbling world means that Soul King’s has died. It seems this distruction will happen everywhere at once.
We go back to the King who interestingly says that the Soul King was created by Soul Society itself to bring stability to the chaotic mess of traffic caused by souls traveling in and out.
Without him in place, everything will return to its former existence Ywach says. What that actually is, is a bit of a guess, but an easy assumption to make is that the earth will return to a cold dead rock in space with no life on it.
Yourichi makes a move to keep the King from moving as she asks Inoue to use her ability to heal the king. Finally someone with a clear head and a good idea.
unfortunately, not even Inoue’s godlike ability can heal the entity that is the Soul King.
Now on the final, page, the final panel, something is happening to Ukitake. Something related to what he and the new Captain Commander were talking about. It already seems it automatically takes effect on his body as something seems to swallow him up.
It could be something related to the Kamikake(devine presence) referred to by Ukitake and Kyouraku in a little convo in chapter 605.
It’s possible it might revert something, putting the soul King back in place and allowing Ichigo another shot at defending its life from Ywach. I’m a bit curious tbh. Ukitake and Kyouraku were part of the Gotei 13 since its inception if I am not mistaken, which means they could haven been around when the Soul King was ‘born’.
It’s interesting to see if this Kamikake is what created the world, Soul Society, Hueco Mundo.. Heaven and hell. It’s possible, the Soul King was a ‘creation’ of Soul Society.
