Chapter 485: Foundation Stones
The king of this world is one cruel ass bastard. Without moving from his seat he cuts this unknown underlings arm off. With a calm sadistic face he even forces his half-dead subordinate to his knees allowing to give his report in the end anyway. Ivan, for one is scared shitless of this man. So he seems the kind of leader that simply uses fear.
Aizen was different in that aspect. Yes he used fear here and then but most of time he was a bit more devious. This guy seems more straight to the point.
I love the little interaction from the rest of the guys, just chilling out having lunch waiting for Ichigo to return. It’s all fun and games till our new recruit gets a phone call with an awesome ringtone, I love to hear that in the anime:P, see what they come up with:P
Yuki san is being informed by the event that has transpired moments ago in SS. The funeral of Vice Captain Sasakibe.
Horn-guy(don’t know his name) recaps all the events of the attack. A staggering number of people died at the front gate. These were not the 7 intruders but other people spotted scurrying about near the gates. No number of enemies was being specified. They still have no clue how they got in or out. But that we already figured out.
FINALLY and old favorite returns in an old-fashioned snot powered super speed entry. Ichigo wonders why Nell suddenly shows her face, however it’s clear she is very upset and needs our help. We won’t have to wait long to find out why.
It may the translation but the next part wasnt very clear to me. They speak of something call the frontier. I am not sure what they mean by this. But they seem to want to break into someplace else. Could be all their activities are just small parts of a big plan (Soul King perhaps?)
Anyway, he calls out to Luders Friegen. I’m assuming that is his name. I find this King(i will call him King for now) a strange man. How easily he destroys this man. Ivan gets Luders’s blood all over him. Ivan has apparently done enough for the King aswell, he gives him a glimmer of hope before -seemingly- destroying Ivan aswell.
One of the other masked warriors ask an interesting question to the King where he mentions arrancars. So… Ivan was an arrancar after all, he probably felt himself above an arrancar though, seeing how he serves underneath the King.
The King walks up to a separate dimension(its not exactly a room), where he reveals he has all he needs to get all the Arrancar he needs. Using Harribel. The former #3 is hanging off chains, a spike through her foot. In the final page of this weeks chapter the King makes it clear. Hueco Mundo has been taken over. They wouldn’t have had much trouble seeing how the SS captains cleaews out all the heavy hitters.
The ultimate objective is still a bit unclear. Seeing how this is the final arch, i really how the Soul Kings dimension or at least the Royal Guard. Based on what the King said. I don’t think he intends to stop at the destruction of Soul Society.
As for the take-over of Hueco Mundo. That could clarify the unknown hostile’s that took out a the 1st division grunts at the gates and with the follow or die option the King imposes. He will have plenty of foot soldiers to his disposal.
These chapters are getting harder and harder to summarize as the mystery behind these guys keeps on growing
