Chapter 530: Everything but the Rain Op.3
Ishinn continues to tell the tale of his past and his future wife, Ichigo’s mother.
Two shinigami are making their rounds around Karakura town. They make particular note of the could cover slowly covering the stars. It seems whatever has been causing trouble has shown up during a rainy day.
Shiba Ishinn makes the two shinigami almost crap their pants in shock. But after a little bit of careful banther he becomes serious telling them to stay away if the rain does come tonight.
Mean in the dark skies a form takes shap but what that actually is wont be revealed until the end of today’s chapter.
Instead we visit the Ishida residence and it’s already apparent that I already understand the relationship between Ryuuken and Ishinn. Kurosaki Masaki. She’s quite a lot like Inoue(or technically the other way around) usually acting carefree and happy but she struggles with the pressure set upon her by Ryuuken’s mother; becoming a Quincy and the arranged marriage with Ishida Ryuuken sits heavier with than she wished to show.
Ryuuken has already noticed it. The arranged marriage seemingly only exists to keep the purity on the Quincy bloodline intact. Ryuuken doesn’t share the same views as his mother and actually wished to see Masaki happy.
For him the future of the Quincy isn’t tied down to him marrying Masaki.
In the meantime. Ishinn is on a roof. The rain has started pouring down. The two unranked shinigami have taken shelter down on ground level.
Ishinn suddenly released his reaitsu(this is what probably attracted the attention of the Quincy(and more importantly Masaki). He tries to see if the creature is attracted by power.
It does seemm to attract him before any realize what the hell is going on the two shinigami are killed… violently. Ishinn jumps down but as soon as he does…
A hollow like he’d never seen before. Swords flowing from his arms. Long hair and a mask that eerie looks like Ichigo’s ‘most advanced’ hollow form in Hueco Mundo(agains ulquiorra) and of course the same form showed itself in his inner world when the hollow merged with Bankai Zangetsu to teach him the Final Getsuga TEnshou.
Now the One-Million-Dollar question we can think an extra week about. Why does it looks so similar to Ichigo’s hollow form? Has it somehow influenced both Ishinn and Masaki in their fight against this thing. his reiatsu somehow influencing their first-born child? Aizen likely to be involved with this creation of this thing. But we can almost safely assume Aizen is involved in these events.
The first appearance of a Vasto Lorde? It’s easy to start over thinking here as well. But seeing how it slipped past Ishinn’s senses with ease and the speed it displayed. It is very powerful indeed and will push Ishinn to his limits.
So Bleach is on break this week. See you again in two.
