Chapter 673: Father
That Rukia face.. So funny. Anyway, welcome back this week. Pretty good chapter. Renji gets up toward where the Captains are fighting as he carries Rukia on her back. The two lt’s thinking that its Toshiro elder brother yelling at them and I love it that he doesn’t even bother to correct them.
They all stop in their tracks as they all feel Ichigo’s reiatsu spike up as he and Inoue step into the King’s chambers. THe dark-shroud of the Soul King’s powers covers his eyes but he can still see everything and more. He sees Ichigo’s true, original power flow from his body.
Ywach still considers Ichigo a son of his. Calling Ishinn a mere surrogate to raise Ichigo. The mention of the source of his power strikes a nerve with Ichigo, remembering the fate of his mother.
Ichigo draws his blade and moves in to attack. With his signature Getsuga Tenshou he strikes at Ywach. Ywach dark shroud easily block Ichigo’s attack before he pushes him back. Inoue helps in blocking the attack, but his attack breaks through her barrier.
Ichigo dodges and cuts his way through to try and to get close to Ywach again. THe King allows him to get close to speak to him some more. He mock Ichigo’s feelings more, considering attachments like that meaningless and pitiful in the grander scheme of his own existence.
He throws him back into a wall. Inoue seems worried, but we all know Ichigo is just fine. He barely released his power as has the King, but he seems to ramp it up a little in an awesome, gruesome looking final panel.
That shit looks ominous.
