Chapter 555: The Hero
After a while we finally get a glimpse of what has been going with Ichigo. After his new Zangetsu has been forged he has been training diligently with it.
Ichigo is all dressed up and everything. It doesn’t look like he had much issue with the tailoring skills of Zero squad member Senjumaru Shutara.
Ichigo is ready to head down again but quickly wonders where the tube he came in on has gone too. So he asks Tenjiro Kirinji how the heck his is supposed to get down again.
He has to take the scenic route. which must be the longest staircase ever… of all time.
I love TEnjiro’s face in that pic as he explains the deal to Ichigo. Telling him how long it will take. He hope Ichigo will flip out but the young man stays calm. Which kind of bums TEnjiro out.
Ichibei Hyosube comes walking in laughing loudly as he does. He then goes to tell casually and smiling brightly that Ichigo doesn’t have to bother to get back in time since the Quincy had started their attack three hours ago.
Ichigo eyes open wide and he quickly jump down the center of the stairs complaining to Ichibei why he didn’t say anything earlier. The elder basicly saying he didn’t have an opperunity seeing how he was still training.
Finally madam chef throws him a large ass rice-ball to eat when he gets hungry during the trip.
The Zero squad seem awfully uninterested in what is going on below. But they all acknowledge Ichigo has grown as a person. Ichigo calls Kisuke telling him of his situation. He ask Urahara to tell everyone else to please hold on till he gets there.
Ichigo has gotten smarter realizing that when urahara didn’t say anything about the situation it must e quite bad. He covers his face and speeds up his movements.
Bambietta has released her true power. Bambietta doesn’t respond to Shinji with words, she simply blows him up.
The other girls have all ran off together somewhere bantering to each other. Until one comments that it’s bad new when someone as strong and unstable as Bambietta releases her vollstandig.
Her strength alone would be more than enough to end this war.
I guess it’s about time for Shinji to put on his mask. Or for Zaraki to make his entrance. With all these powerfull enemies to play with, I am surprised he hasn’t show up yet. I guess the ride back up from their fighting ground takes a while.
