Chapter 645: Don’t Chase a Shadow
Well.. I am pretty exited about this little pair up. Well, I don’t really care who Kyouraku is fighting, finally seeing what he can truely do will be exiting. In some ways his Zanpaktou and the way he wants to ‘play’ with his opponents make him quite the wicked man.
Barro wonders how the Commander has gotten her so fast, but doesn’t have to wonder long as Kyouraku starts to explain the rules of the game; Daruma-san fell over. Before that he reserves some time to chat with Nanao, his vice-captain, still staying beside him. She ends up leaving the fight to inform before she will return. Given the nature of his Zanpaktou she could very well play a part in this fight as she could end up being another pawn on the board.
Barro already know his enemies abilities. Now that is something Kyouraku doesn’t really care about as he usually explains everything anyways. Barro interrupts Kyouraku’s explanation of the game’s rules and continues analyzing with almost perfect accuracy. Much to the delight of Kyouraku it seems.
Quite amused indeed to his opponents learns the games of the rules so quickly. He then goes on to say. “It’s only when be both know the rules one can call it a ‘game’ wouldnt you agree.”
This comments puts Barro on edge, as it should. They Kyouraku gives him even more information, by telling he managed to trick Barro’s senses by leaving a ‘copy’ of himself using his reiatsu. He then announces his status as Captain Commander of the Gotei 13. Then, staying true to his style, he goes on the attack again without giving his opponent much time.
Barro breaks of a bit of his gun and anticipates his move, blasting Kyouraku through the chest. Or does he? He quickly sees Kyouraku’s Kageoni appear from the ground, successfully dodging the attack. After a short exchange of words where Barro or Varo(depending on which translation your grab) says his ability once more. Being able to shoot through anything and everything. He then quickly shoots Kyouraku again.
But again.. it is just one of his shadows. THe more powerful his opponent is, the more life-like the after-images are. The line he ends with is pretty goddamn good. I’m sure Barro will have his hands full.
