Chapter 582: The Headless Star
Zaraki replies to Ichigo standing over him. Ichigo then asks if Kenpachi can stand. The beat-down captain tells him to worry about himself first.
Ichigo doesn’t look to worried as he feels Catniss coming in for an attack from above.
She launches her strike but before she can fire off her thunderbolt Ichigo zips above her grabbing her arm and throwing her into a nearby tower. The other three girls surround him but he dodges their attacks mostly. His cloak being grabbed onto by Liltotto’s big mouth.
Ichigo acts a bit surprised not at this cloak being ripped apart but manages just fine as he hurls the rest of them into the buildings around them.
The girl-squad is a bit bruised but otherwise fine. One wonder if they were being careless. Liltotto comments that they weren’t. Realizing he is Kurosaki Ichigo and the he should be capable of at least this much. The other girls seems a bit more shocked about Liltotoo’s observation(at least one of them did their homework).
Catniss doesn’t really care. She is proper pissed at Ichigo for a ‘womanly’ reason of getting her covered in dust. All that time spent getting herself ready to look fabulous. She pulls out her bow and fires her ‘Galvano Blast’ arrow at Ichigo. A five gigajoule arrow.
Again Liltotto is being a realist telling her mate than Ichigo wouldn’t die from just a couple of heilig pfeils(holy arrows).
Indeed Ichigo is fine and dandy. WIth is cloak gone we get a good look at his new holsters for his two blades. And he looks pretty damn good in it.
All the girls pull out their arrows and Ichigo draws his swords in response getting this battle properly started.
Now of course it weren’t just the Shinigami that noticed Ichigo’s reiatsu. The king obviously felt his presence aswell. He annouces to Haschwalt and Ishida that ‘it’ is about to begin.
STernritter ‘D’ Askin stands below the massive castle tower and realizes the King is about to move.
He makes an interesting notion, wondering if he actually has a choice or not. Could this mean they might be forced to sacrifice themselves in order to strengthen the King even more?
