Chapter 488: Bond Behind Blast
Two of the three musketeers are enjoying a nice little argument. Sun Sun take the opportunity to take a stand before the captain, which of course pisses off the two monkies behind her.
Ichigo continues to make a speed advance to the noise. Nell had hidden herself offering some intel on the ‘Tres Bestia’. Ichigo actually never met these three at all. As these girls made their appearance early in the battle of Karakura.
Little Nell describes their personality with some small matter of exaggeration. The VanderREich captain stands and watches as the Tres Bestia cut and slice their way through all the small fry. He event cuts one of his own when the frightened soldier suggested retreat. So a friendly work condition. Fight or die cause if you retreat you die aswell.
Captain Opie actually wants to recruit the girls. Have a little bit of respect toward their combat strength. THe Beasts have no interest in this proposal loyal to Harribel alone.
The chapter switches back to SS. Akon have made his report. Mayuri finally reveals the Vanderreich to be Quincy. Something that I thought they were from the start with the cross but with the enemies shown I soon wasnt sure about what is what anymore. Glad to have still cleared up.
Yamamoto interrupts him. His mind focussed on revenge no doubt. He has but one simple question of Mayuri but the 12th squad captain cannot answer him. The location of their HQ is still unknown. Yamamoto wastes no time ordering the SS captains to prepare for full on war.
Ichigo finally makes it to the combat area. We see the residue of Opie’s blade dissolving with the (presumed) dead beasts. Opie is really having a field day here. Taking out arrancar and now suddenly facing our Substitute Shinigami.
Oh boy… 😀
