Chapter 482: Bad Recognition
Ladies. Gentlemen. It is another very interesting chapter. Two major facts were revealed today. But first things first. Vlad is still standing on Ichigo’s bed getting on Ichigo’s nerves. With a quick play of teamwork between Ichigo and Inoue he’s now outside. No-one seems anyway impressed about this masked man. As the other focus on a more important matter.
The new recruits do seems scared, as to be expected. The line on page six is a bit awkward. If he hasn’t got business with Ichigo, why did you go there in the first place? Was he there to visit on one of the others three? Or Ishinn?
The guy doesn’t seem all that hostile at first glance. But as soon as Ichigo mentions the word Arrancar, Ivan gets a little pissed off and he finally reveals what he is.
A f*cking Quincy. My first chapter thoughts were right after all, the Quincy cross fall from his sleeve and he powers up a massive bow. Ryuuken has never really used his cross, but the huge difference between Ivan’s and of the Ishida’s. Could be he uses the cross as a catalyst. But I think uses that thing too. But he is not as strong as his father, which looks like he didn’t use the cross in the brief time we saw him use his bow.
The second and I think more likely; the hollow mask. They might have strengthened themselves using hollow. They wouldn’t be the first. Seeing how Quincy destroy hollow, they sure as hell won’t doubt about using them for their revenge. I wonder if we already get our first little fight in next chapter.
The chapter continues on. 11th squad actually being put to work for investigating, and not doing that badly either. Our old favorite man-boy-girl Yumichika looking even more flamboyant. The people of the village are responsible for their own disappearance. wierd… Quincy are likely to be involved but the matter of how, is still a mystery. I doubt Quincy will go after villagers seeing they are not Shinigami. They could also be looking for them as recruits. Low level soldiers. There is too little to go on for the time being.
Captain Commander Yamamoto is being kept up to date as the division conduct their respective investigations. Before a group of 7 masked men appear before him. Who look like they don’t have arms(there probably keep them on their backs, but I think it looks a bit weird). They don’t really introduce themselves but come with a short message.
