Chapter 619: The Betrayer
This chapter again has given me fixed feelings. The combat in the latter half is great. But the King doing his obligatory “All this time you were fighting me” speech makes me sigh so hard, i skipped last weeks summary. Especially when he ends it with the
“It’s all because you and I, Ichigo… we have the same blood flowing through our veins.” had me crinch a bit.
Anyway, Ichigo starts to attack Ywach, who still is playing the high skilled “mindgame” with Ichigo. Out of nowhere Yourichi gets an arrow in the shoulder. So that was the end of her adventure.
And it was shot by the only guy actually using his quincy bow as of late. Ishida! Unlike the characters I was not shocked. For some reason the barrier breaks
The king knocks Ichigo back and guns for the Soul King. Yourichi attacks the ywach with some balls(maybe one of Kisuke’s tool), too lazy to deal with her himself he request the aid of the vacuum cleaner(or something black hole like powers); Parnkjas, who quite effectively twists her arms.
Ichigo comes back to stop Ywach from trying to rip Kamikake of the remains of the Soul King. But his has to counter another arrow from Ishida. Surprisingly Ywach does not seem to have a hard time at all to rip the Kamikake off further damaging the palace.
I don’t know why Uryuu is helping Ywach at this point. We all know he wants revenge on the Soul King. But I guess Bleach needs a Naruto / Sasuke fight, or has Uryuu simply messed up earlier by drinking Ywach’s blood making him the fated successor.
