Chapter 637: Baby, Hold your Hand
What an amusing chapter this week. Mayuri is more in his element that he was when he was fighting the Arrancar scientist.
Anyway, this week Mayuri is quite amazed by the sheer power Zaraki has by being able to move his eyes after being stabbed with Mayuri’s Zanpaktou telling the incapacitated Zaraki that he shall improve his blade thanks to this ‘revelation’.
Well, after that one-sided exchange Mayuri focusses on the odd creature before him. Going on another second monalogue. He commends the ‘noble sacrifice’ of Zaraki and think the Quincy should simply surrender because of that and become his experiment. He is quite sarcastic about the whole thing himself which makes the whole scene quite amusing, seen example above.
Ofcourse the Quincy doesn’t feel like complying and finally reveals its form to Mayuri and us. And it was quite a surprise.
A hand… Mayuri quickly deduces it as being the left arm of the Soul King. The lt’s waiting behind Mayuri watch in shock as the grotesque being grows itself with an upper and lower arm. After a short exchange with Ikkaku about, the latter wondering if it could truely be the left arm of the Soul King.
I would say why not. The Soul King didn’t have arms, and the right arm was bound to Ukitake via a contract of sorts. It could be that Ywach ‘saved’ the left arm from the SOul King’s control and made it an individual being with a name of its own. Or something cheesy like that.
When the creature talks Mayuri only gets more and more exited with the prospect of studying this new subject. It seems the way Mayuri talks about this new being angers it, telling him its name.
Probably gifted to him by Ywach.
