Bleach Chapter 683: The Dark Side of Two World Ends

Chapter 683: The Dark Side of Two World Ends
Read Chapter

It seems nobody missed last weeks summary, sad face.

A very nice, action packed story this week. Great battle between Aizen and Ywach. One where it is revealed that the ‘Almighty’s power is not that ‘Almighty’ after all.

683a

It start with a enormous blast that destroys a large part of Soul Society. Pretty normal in that aspect. WE see an exhausted Ichigo at the end of pool of black goo, I guess. Ywach stands calm and confidently, mocking Ichigo’s inability to do anything even further.

Renji takes his monologue as a moment to strike, but it goes as well as you’d expect. The moment he calls out his bankai het gets slaughtered his arm cut off completely aswell as his bankai’s arm.

683b

Before Ywach can whipe him away completely Aizen gets in the way. Which, to my first surprise he seem genuinely surprised at. Ywach laughs at the notion that Aizen would help Ichigo and Renji in this battle. Aizen remains quiet and launches a powerfull Kido attack. Which ofcourse is as useless as asking Gerald Valkyrie to stop transforming all the time like a total cheese factory.

683c

The 2nd little notion is that Ywach ‘breaks’ Aizen’s blade. A blade that was already destroyed by the Hougyouku a long time ago as far as I am aware. He never had it in any scene after that. So why does Ywach seems to see it. Aizen still posesses his power, a feat he sorta demonstrated during his captivity. Remember the scene between him and Kyouraku where he seemingly was freely walking around.

Aizen believes he just punched Aizen to absolute hell before slicing Ichigo’s arms off. blocking his blade before shattering it completely as he says nothing escapes his gaze. After saying his final words to the young human he blasts a giant hole in his stomach then, if that wasnt enough, hold the half dead body up in the air to say thanks for an ‘amusing’ resistance.

683d

Then Aizen decides to reveal himself to Ywach, noting how interesting it is that Ywach seems to think he was looking at Ichigo all along. Ichigo, thankfully, is wise enough to not give Ywach time to think piercing his back before cutting him in half with a powerful Getsuga Tenshou.

Now I doubt Ywach is dead in any way shape or something. He probably is just going to enter phase two. But it was very interesting to see that not even Ywach was able to escape Kyouka Suigetsu ability. Now Aizen does seem hurt and I don’t think he will be part of this fight for too much longer. But Ichigo will have picked up some vital intel.

So here I was enjoying this weeks chapter. Haschwalt didn’t suddenly despair feeling honored that his Majesty took his power.

I felt for Inoue apologizing to Ichigo, such a sad moment.

I felt the despair Ichigo felt this chapter being beaten to a pulp, his resolve broken..

And then… this guy happened…

681a

And just like that Ichigo is good to go again… I then I just feel somewhat like this;

4391101

 

Kubo Tite, you created such a awesome mood with Ichigo’s defeat. All the feels, despair, tension.. destroyed… It feels so lazy and I’ve reread the chapter several time and I still feel the same. He wrote in a cool scenario and then thought; ‘oh crap, how do I get Ichigo out of this one.. oh I know!’ Thanks for ruining the mood completely by giving Ichigo the fullbringer version of a Red Bull…

I will see you guys next week.

Bleach 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.

680a

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.

680b

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.

680c

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.

680d

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.

Bleach Chapter 679: The End

Chapter 679: The End
Read Chapter

So.. this chapter is called ‘The End’. Which, considering the state of our heroes seems an appropriate title. Ichigo is facing the indestructible wall that is the Almighty God. Throwing more mockery his way showing off his might, using only his words and the actions he’s shown before.

679a

To change anything and everything that he can ‘see’ and he can now see everything. The end is nigh for our heroes. Even Ishida seems at his last breath. Ywach’s right-hand man seems undamaged.

We finally learn about his “Schrift” – The Balance. He says the following; “By taking the misfortune that occurs within my sphere of influence and dispersing it to those that have fortuitous luck and lead charmed lives. I maintain the balance in the world.”

679b

There is also that shield of his to add even more trouble to whoever is fighting him. It absorbs any damage or “misfortune” that befalls upon him. As he gets ready to strike Ishida asks him to wait. Asking Haschwalt if he doesn’t want to know what his own “schrift” is like. Ishida even goes to say that it’s about time that he can use it.

“A” – Antithesis

Among two designated targets he can completely reverse anything that has ‘already happened’. In this case he chose to swap the damage back to him. Then Haschwalt, still confident (and rightfully so) tell Ishida that he might be the only one capable of opposing his Majesty’s power.

I think even Ywach mentioned something like this. That Ishida would become the leader of the Quincy after he is dead. But of course Haschwalt can redirect any damage done to him straight back to Ishida. Which Ishida could throw right back at Haschwalt. Assuming he can muster the strength with so much damage being done to him.

679c

So and the end of it all our heroes are at death’s door. Ishida by the hand of Haschwalt and Ichigo by the hand of Ywach. Though Ywach starts by reclaiming his power.

I guess it is time for their fathers to put their lives on the line for their children.

Bleach Chapter 678: The Future Black

Chapter 678: The Future Black
Read Chapter

I don’t really know what to think of this weeks chapter. It kinda has the Dragonball Z powerup bs going on. The “I told this was my power, but really this is my power!! HARR HARR!!” cliché. The action is still great, but this chapter still leave a bit of bad taste behind. Don’t feel like writing too long a piece.

678a

“Tensa Zangetsu” is revealed. It looks a lot like his original blade, the white and black blended together with an attack from the back to the close to the front. It gets broken the instant he unleashed it.

Then after a few words from Ywach where again, he commends his power and ‘Bankai’ the man suddenly holds Ichigo’s horn. This repeats a few times Ywach landing several vicious attack even circumventing Inoue’s barrier, till we reach the The “I told this was my power, but really this is my power!! HARR HARR!!” moment.

678b

Where Ywach ‘clarifies’ his ability which is not to see the future, but transform it. So.. what he got here is a really messed up version of Zachery Comstock or something, or a transgender, Elizabeth. Man.. I would love to play that dlc.

Anyway.. Ywach demands despair, Ichigo looks in despair at his enemy. Insert new revelation next week.

Slippers. That is the theme of today, with all the talk of sand in the later stages of this chapter. Get your bleach-themed slippers soon. Summer is coming.

But it all seriousness. Another pretty good chapter to follow-up last week. Ywach sort of gives Ichigo a complinent. Ichigo, the human that is a mix of everything fighting against the God of everything himself.

Ywach starts to ‘read’ Ichigo’s mind as the defends from every concurrent strike from the young man. But he considers Ichigo’s strength high enough that he needs to unleash his ‘allmighty’ power to make sure he does not make another mistake.

677a

The dark cloak full of eyes that sees all possibilities of the future. As the battle continues on, both of them start to wield two swords. As Ichigo is pushed back he lands on a trap that Ywach had placed. He jumps back to a tower only to find another trap to hit him. Ywach goes on to explain his ability a bit future.

I already said it before. His ability allows him to watch over every possibility that exists. The future is constantly changing.

677b

Ywach traps strike ichigo again, breaking his horn, but Ichigo regenerates that later. As Ywach explains his ability, he sees the future in possibilities. Grains of sand spreading out in the wind. Every option could be considered a ‘future’. Ywach can see every grain of sand clearly from high above and simply has to follow Ichigo ‘jump’ from grain to grain.

Then we see the most interesting bit, that truly shows the growth of Ichigo. By this point he always lands into despair, but not anymore.

677c

With those he flings back too Ywach he finally releases his bankai. I wonder how his Bankai blade will have evolved. Also I wonder if his physical form will change alongside his blade to match his bankai.

p.s. does anyone want to place a bet, we will suddenly go back to Ishida for next week?

Bleach 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.

676a

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.

676b

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.

676c

With a sinister face Ichigo calls out his Gran Rey Cero. The special type of Cero on the most powerful Espada could use.
