Chapter 680: The End 2
Apologies for the delayed piece. This chapter didn’t go as I expected. Their father’s did not come to the rescue and Ichigo gets all his juice, including the hollow (which I found a bit surprising tbh), sucked out of him. Interesting to note his mother is shown rather than ‘old man’ Zangetsu as it all fades to white and he drops to the ground, passed out.
Like a typical bad-guy ywach start laughing an absolute treat, his plans seems to near completion as the dark shroud that surrounds him expands into a massive mushroom-like structure, hovering far over the soul-palace.
We then switch back to Ishida and Haschwalt. The young quincy in an equally bad shape clinging onto like as Haschwalt doesn’t (in typical villain fashion) deliver the killing blow when he can and should.
Instead he allow Ishida to start a little monalogue about his growing relationship with Ichigo and co and the choices he has made being their friends. This anger’s Haschwalt to the point he is finally ready to deliver the final blow. But as he does…
A bright white light envelops him, oddly enough, Ishida is not targeted by the ‘Sternritter-power Vaccum cleaner’. For plot reasons he wont be targeted by Ywach, for logical reasons I guess Ishida being near death makes it pointless to take his strength, since he has none.
This also means of course that Espada #0.. sorry.. Gerard ‘Goldielocks’ Varlkyrie is also targeted by the Dyson vaccum cleaner.
All the Quincy power is sucked up into the black shroud before it condenses back into ywach as he forms a gate. He announces he has no need for anybody anymore before he says he will lay ruin to everything, SS, Hueco Mundo and the real world.
Now it begs to wonder where the gate leads too. The most obvious would be the real world. But a fight the scale of the Aizen-Ichigo battle would be too much. So.. he might head to Hueco Mundo perhaps, or simply in the space in between where Ywach will rip all the worlds apart to create it all anew.
All I can conform for now, that the end is nigh as it is declared on the first colored page.
