Chapter 581: The Hero 2
The events of this week are work as a nice summary to how the war is going for the Gotei 13. Which… is bad…
Omeada is carrying an unconsious So Foin around her back. He gets ambushed by some random soldiers. It also seems Omeada sisters is alive.
Fortunately for him Shinji and Hinarmi come to his aid. The little Hinamori blowing them up with little trouble. Shinji orders his lt to provide aid to Soi Fon.
She is good at healing but not 4th squad good. Anyway with a moment to breath they review their situation and plan. It seems they all agree that Zaraki is the most important warrior for them on the battlefield atm.
With Zaraki in a weakened state the Quincy figured that if they kill him the battle will shift in their favor. Which is true as Shinji comments. A lot of captain are down for the count, even more are battered and bruised scattered all over the place.
In order to stay in the fight Zaraki must survive.
Unbeknownst to them. Bazz-B was listening to them for a while. And this guy is smart enough not to monologue at goes all out with his ability ‘burning finger’ to take them all out.
He turns the area into a giant wave of lava. Creating a very dicey situation for the group. We don’t get to see this time out how they deal with it.
In the meantime we see Kuchuki’s pov of the fight in the disance. The four female sternritter battering down on Zaraki. Rukia suddenly stops as she senses something familiar, before even her brother does.
Alot of others shinigami notice it aswell. Renji(still doing fine it seems). Ikkaku(not using his bankai, like a dumdum).
Finally the approaching familiar bashes into the. The four knights looking up in shock and then disappointment as whatever broke through the dome crashes through a belltower into the ground.
The, to them, unknown assailant is suddenly behind him. And to no surprise to me, its Ichigo. He got his old-fashioned speed back and seems to move so quick they can’t sense him move.
Ichigo’s pretty much ignores the Quincy presence having a little chat with the ‘resting’ Zaraki.
The chapter ends with words Ichigo never thought he’d even say to Ichigo.
“I am here to save you.”
I for one cannot wait to see how much he has grown in the short time he could train up there in the Soul Palace.
