Chapter 676: Horn of Salvation
Hollow Ichigo!?!?!?!?! Pretty much. But he aint outta control like last time as Inoue remembers as he sees his form. He even seems to have the characteristic hollow-hole in his chest.
Ichigo quickly re-assures her that he is still himself. Now I don’t think he even has released his bankai yet. Apart from the color white his blade hasn’t changed in shape. As far as I understood from the dialog between him and Ywach the form he has now is when Ichigo melds together with his power.
It’s both a combination of his Quinc, shinigami and hollow powers within that have finally achieved balance after which he reforged Zangetsu into the two swords he has. From the little panel at the bottom we see his white-blade(hollow) and black blade(Quincy).
Ichigo comments it would have been convenient if he could draw on this power at will, but he is far from managing that. Ywach grins, seemingly pleased to see Ichigo’s power. He takes a step forward, apparently he moved so fast Inoue couldnt register it.
As Ichigo unleashes his power the palace room doesn’t last very long. Ywach draws his blade aswell, but within an instant Ichigo blocks him and attempt to strike Ywach. THe king easily blocks Ichigo’s attack with his bare hand. He strikes back at Ichigo pushing the young man way back.
The Quincy ruler mocks Ichigo. But he soon realizes that Ichigo’s attack was something much different that his regular Getsuga Tenshou.
With a sinister face Ichigo calls out his Gran Rey Cero. The special type of Cero on the most powerful Espada could use.
