Chapter 513: The Dark Moon Stroke
Byakuya is still breathing avoiding death for a few moments longer. He voices his trust on Ichigo’s strength before he cannot hold onto zenbonsakura anymore the blade withers away
The scene switches back to Ichigo. Ichigo takes hold of his sword. Haschwald steps forward but is stopped by Juha. The King wishes to talk instead to the young boy standing ready to oppose him. He seems to get a big of douch again as he talks to Ichigo. First applauding his escape from the jail. I actually think now that it wasnt Akon who broke him out of the jail. Akon probably just opened the door for Ichigo to enter SS.
The King has a point with his question. Ichigo’s body looks quite beaten. Ichigo ignores his question and asks his own as well.
Juha gets cryptic and answers with a yes and no answer. He is an enemy to SS but probably sees himself the savior of humanity. Ichigo has not ear for Juha and gets a bit more vocal as the rage builds inside him.
Ichigo asks if Juha is the one who turned SS into a pile of rubble. Juha seems somewhat intriqued by Ichigo rather than being impressed by Ichigo’s display of strength.
Juha gets even more exited as he seems eager to see how strong this young boy actually Ichigo is.
Ichigo jumps forwards sporting his rage face blasting out a Getsuga Tenshou. The attack does very little as Juha is protects himself with “Blut Vene”(Blood armor) much to Ichigo’s surprise. Juha grabs him by the wrist and smashes him into the ground. Ichigo tries to strike him with his off-hand but Juha block it pulling out his sword along with it.
His sword hits Ichigo straight in the neck ending this fight quickly. Condifent with Juha stands himself up and orders Haschwald to take him back the castle and resurrect him. The way Juha says make this resurrection look quite a bit like the revival technique used in Naruto where the ‘resurrected’ is forced to follow the master’s orders. Haschwald does not seem to like this technique but obviously intends to follow the King’s orders.
Ichigo is still alive and well. Juha’s blade never damaged his skin because Ichigo has learned a new technique whilst stuck in the Precipy world. “Blut Vene” Blood armor. The Quincy armor. Ichigi uses this moment of surprise blasting Juha with a wave of flames.
The fight is just getting started…
The big question of this week of course is, who taught Ichigo that technique. Probably the unknown man Kisuke saw earlier. The most likely answer is that it would be an Ishida. But has uryu come to help out his friends. Or is his father coming along to share a few words with Juha?
