Chapter 543: Letters
A, A, B, D, H, I, K, S, That is the Quincy alfabet…
Or something like that anyway.
So, this weeks starts with a bombshell. Juha has called all the Sternritter in(and everybody else) and is ready to make an important announcement.
He calls forth, Ishida Uryuu onto the stage. He looks sleek and kind of grumpy in the white VanDerReich uniform.
The sternritter have no idea who he is. Juha, however does, but not quite… he announces Uryuu as the lone Quincy Survivor in this world. So, Ishida’s father manages to keep himself hidden from Juha. This gives some sort of confirmation that Ishida has a motive to be there. Maybe Ryuuken has told Ishida the same story as Ishinn told Ichigo. which could mean. Ishida could want revenge, since Juha sort of killed Uryuu’s mother.
Without as giving his subordinates any extra information regarding this new man. Juha annouces Ishida as the new successor. Everybody there goes nuts so much so, that ‘mohawk man’ yells out to Juha. He is stopped by the blond man. Juha’s second in command.
Juha doesn’t say much of anything about Ishida, not even his name to the other Sternritter. Other than the fact they will ‘know’ his power soon enough. After that he leaves again leaving the sternritter behind. Confused and angry.
The rest of the chapter isn’t too interesting. It seems to serve mostly to introduce the Sternritter and their ‘rank’. Some we have seen in SS invasion and a couple of new ones. The earlier the letter in the alphabet, the bigger their strength.
There doesn’t seem to be a clear 2nd in command with this system it seems. Multiple people can have the same letter.
I think this because Ishida is still hanging around Juha, having completed some sort of ritual that will unlock his power. So like Ichigo it seems Ishida has a bigger pool of strength the pull from. More importantly. Ishida get the same letter as Juha…
Interesting that Juha so casually keeps his subordinates in the dark. Very different from Aizen who shared alot.
