Chapter 656: God of Thunder
I enjoyed this chapter again. Glad to see he doesn’t op his way through everybody on his way haschwalt and the King. We are forced to listen to a bit of backstory of Ashkinn taking his sweet time talking to Ichigo who stays pretty darn quiet during the talk.
Gerard is called the “Spirit King’s Heart”. Gerard, alongside pernida always had the strength they have showed. Without Ywach giving them anything. It could very well be true that Gerard-san is considerd the “heart of the Soul King”. He surely is a spirited vocal man. It does make the Spirit King even stranger and stranger.
Because he is pretty much down for the count. Ashkinn keeping him planted on the floor unable to move an inch. Inoue and Chad try and safe him. Ichigo warns them but its too late. They touch the ground and get incapacitated by a super-dense reishi. At least.. he lowered the resistance of his targets to reishi.
Then Yourichi shows up, hanging like a monkey on a piece of rubble. Ashkinn seems totally unimpressed being quite confident in his abilities that even spilling the beans doesnt matter to him at all. Or maybe he is simply disgusted by the sight of such an rude oaf of a woman.
Yourichi doesnt waste time with this guy activating her Shunko, it seems much rougher and more powerfull than last time we saw it. Ashkin, talking like a creep, attack her first firing two arrows at her. Yourichi grabs one, dodges the others before sending the first one right back at him striking him in the shoulder.
Now there is suprise and perhaps some fear in his eyes. She doesnt give him much time to do anything as she readies a powerful blast. Shunkou Raijin Senkei (God of thunder’s war form) hopefully burning him to a crisp.
Cant shake the feeling of wanting to see Yourichi pull out her Zanpaktou. Don’t you?
