Chapter 595: Rubb-Dolls 2
Hey yo, welcome back…
It seems JUMP releases have been a day late for the last few weeks. A bit annoying for me since Friday is a long ass day at work-day.
Anyway. A new sternritter has introduced himself. The self-proclaimed love doctor ; Sternritter ‘L’ Pepe Waccabrada “the love”. I figured his abilities would be more devious in nature going by how he was presented before. But his power his quite different.
His power takes control of another person, much like Giselle, except his way to control the subject is love, not death.
Last week he captured Hisagi’s heart making the Shinigami attack his superior Kuchiki Byakuya. Pepe takes this time to explain to Byakuya some of his philosophy of conflict.
Byakuya already rendered Hisagi immobile and seems intent to waste no time into taking out the manipulator.
He moves his hand to make the shape of a heart and starts firing ‘hearts’ at Byakuya. It seems it can be blasted as a continuous stream making it harder to dodge. Byakuya eventually strikes the beam with his blade along with a comment that the Sternritter cannot manipulate the heartless.
However even though Byakuya is a cold-hearted man his blade still has a ‘heart’ and thus can be manipulated forcing Byakuya to discard his blade.
Pepe makes the wounded Hisagi get up, the lt coughing up blood but still seemingly pretty damn mobile. Byakuya rethinks his strategy while dodging Hisagi’s attack.
Pepe manages to hit him with his ‘love kiss’ as he calls it but it doesn’t hinder byakuya, making Pepe go ‘völlstandig’. A form I could have done with out, but it allows him to make use of his more advanced abilities. The surprisingly called ‘love rope’.
He manages to immobilize Byakuya, but stops hisagi from striking him down. Then pulls out his love bow from his throat.
But before he can fire he gets smashed by a foot to the head. No doubt it was Kensei’s.
Now these guys still seem pretty dead, but I have no doubt that Mayuri has regained control of these man, likely using the same drug he gave Toshiro. They look even more devoid of life, the black markings on their head reminding me a bit Ichigo’s hollow form.
I wonder how mindless they are, they don’t seem to be carrying their Zanpaktou’s though, or maybe they are simply out of few.
