Chapter 510: The Extinction
Our Three-eyes buddy had a twin. Their abilities were similar with a major difference between them. The both take over another’s likeness. The elder Loyd can copy another one’s abilities and power. The younger one Royd can copy another’s spirit and memories.
So Juha Bach has sent another Sternritter in his place to keep Yamamoto occupied until his own business was concluded. In that regard. It couldn’t have gone better for Juha Bach. The underling died, but Yamamoto was never the wiser seeing his underlings felt and reacted the same as Juha would(or just about, he was still under orders). Royd was strong enough to take out Zaraki with ease so Yamamoto wouldn’t have been too suspicious about his combat strength compared to the rest of the Sternritter.
Anyway, we quickly find out what Juha Bach was actually up and why he needed a distraction. He enters the scene by blasting the 1st division barracks to dust. Before Yama can react. The real king is already behind him. So far it seems this is the first guy he ever complimented on doing a good job. He gives the dying Quincy a quicker death blasting his body to nothingness.
So, Yama asks the question that was lingering with all of us. What has he been doing?
He has been visiting a prisoner who some of us thought he already was running around SS or even Hueco Mundo. But we find out he is still fully secured in jail patiently taking his sentence. I am obviously talking about.
Aizen Sosuke. I figured in advance he would decline any offer to become an underling for anyone. If he did join the King he would have thrown everything he stood for. Remember, Aizen wanted to take out the Soul King because he didn’t want to life underneath that ‘thing’ as he called it.
Juha provokes the Commander and he calls out his Bankai again.
And BAM. Unlike what I thought going by Yama’s own analysis last time out, careful configuration doesn’t seem half as necessary as power. Yama’s is so fucking strong a sternritter would not be able to control its immense power and it would simply go out of control as its trying to escape capture I guess.
Yama is in fucking trouble. Juha has full control over the most powerful zanpaktou in SS to use, instead he summons a giant bow into the skies and uses it to fire an energy blade. Yama’s earlier fire seems to have gone as his Bankai got stolen from him. As if the old man is already preparing his death. Contemplating his failure.
with that Juha says his well-meant farewell to his old enemy and strikes him down.
