Chapter 658: Fatal Matters Are Cold
Hello, happy new year, I hope you guys/gals are safe and sound. Back to Bleach it is.
We ended the year with two of the Shihouin family striking Ashkin with their own versions of the Shunkou ability. However they failed to kill the Quincy. The slightish arrogant man then declares they just lost their chance to be able to kill him.
His ability is becoming immune to anything he encounters is near-lethal dosis.
Yourichi seems to realized she may have lost any and or all chance to kill him. The young brother Yuushirou attacks him with full power. Yourichi tries to call him back but the young man strikes at Ashkinn. Nothing happens when he attack connects. To Ashkinn though, the attack feels just like a light tap. He pierces the young boy with three arrows through his body.
The scene switches back to Gerard the ‘Tall one’. Oh sorry, the ‘Miracle’. The oddest thing about this part is the sudden appearance of the Vaizards. I had not seen them running along with the other and suddenly they are here. It seems a bit abrupt and unfortuantly it seems like they will be underused again as the quick demise of Renji and co, and Vaizard group seems more like a setup to show off how awesome a certain captain has become.
They first try and setup a sneak attack. I would figure using hollow abilities against Quincy would work well, since apperently they were sort off toxic to it, back when the Shinigami had their Bankai’s stolen. But, at least for Gerard, they do jack-shit. He brushes off a powerfull Cero like its nothing, and even a combined a attacked…
…well… does nothing. Then Toshiro suddenly appears(fan service I guess?). He manages to freeze the man in place.. sorta. The ice-captain is still wearing his Quincy outfit having gone straight back into battle. Im not quite sure how Toshiro’s abilities would counter Gerard ‘the Giant’.. damn.. I mean.. Gerard ‘The Miracle’. But I suppose we will see what happens.
