Chapter 559: The Night Right
Night is falling which would only turn the favor of the battleground more toward the Quincy.
Haschwalt is still having a calm chat with Kyouraku in what used to be the Commander’s quarters. And before I move with the contents of the chapter I gotta mention this first since it is really bugging me.
Where did his eyepatch go?!?!?!? Last we saw it(ch.551) he was still wearing it. They weren’t fighting. We didn’t see him take it off so we have no reason to believe his wound was healed or would have been healed somehow in the time they have been talking. Did Kubo and whoever helps all missed this? Or is it just a case ‘off, yeah… he’s fine now.’. it’s not like Kubo missed on panel, it’s just gone in this chapter, oh well…
Haschwalt feels he finally needs to step to make sure the balance tips toward the Quincy. During the conversation the 2nd in command has been weakening the barrier toward the points he can blow apart easily.
Nanao immediately pulls up another barrier. A different type altogether from what she did before. Haschwalt is not fooled by the apparent weakness of the barrier and knows(and says) it’s probably booby-trapped. He readies himself to strike out but is interrupted by a phone call which needs a really big dish get any kind of reception in this place.
He gets the order to return to the king and does so immediately much to the surprise of Kyouraku. Haschwalt says his Majesty’s will is absolute.
Meanwhile Yumichika, Ikkaku and Hisagi have gathered up as night has fallen now. It isn’t long till they are ambushed and struck down my Sternritter “S” Mask the Masculine.
We do not get to see this fight as we switch to the castle.
BG9 and Cang Du are still alive. apparently they were revived via the Vollstaendig release. However apparently the scales of battle must be balanced. ‘A life saved by fortune must pay with an equal amount of misfortune’ are the words before Haschwalt strikes at Cang du with a different blade from what he usually carries around(going by the pic of the blade resting on the shoulder of Cang Du.
Cang Du proudly announces he doesn’t want to be slain by anyone except the Mayesty himself. Hashwalt find his words ‘splendid’, a second show of fortune.
We finally see a bit of what his power is. It still looks very unique indeed. From his words and the scale behind him, the closest thing I thought of was the Execution member Moe with his Jackpot Knuckle power.
We zip back to the battle outside where Masculine seems to have round-up the battle quite quickly. He is the first to notice the entry of Rukia and Renji. Hopefully we find out soon how much they improved with their training in the Soul King’s palace.
