Bleach Chapter 621: The Dark Curtain

Chapter 621: The Dark Curtain
Read Chapter

After getting hopes up ever so briefly, Ukitake’s bodily sacrifice is quickly rendered useless. Ywach still easily ripping the essence into his own body…

621a

A second later a big black beam comes down on the dome surrounding Sereitei quickly coating Seiretei in complete darkness. The King remains silent at the top, the power of the Soul King released and flowing into, and out of his body. Creepy looking critters spawn from the cloak of his body.

Haschwalt explains that the critters are a representation of the Soul King’s full power which was sealed away by the Shinigami. apparently the being was so strong it cannot contain its own power within its body thus the body finds a need to secrete it.. in a way..

Now that the Soul King has been absorbed by Ywach they will automatically target shinigami, not even sure what the would do. Maybe they can consume their target.

621b

The excess of critters flows down the remains of the palace grounds. Down to where the Shinigami have gathered. Soi Fon takes action calling out her Bankai in order to blast the shroud but before she can fire, the critters land and start nibbling away at the people below.

Weapons seem to be ineffective until they get advice from a certain someone.

621c

Aizen mocks their action. His keen eye already figured out the better way of dealing with the critters. Squashing them with the pressure of your Reitastu. I’m sure Kyouraku will show himself shortly after to reassure the others, but its evident they should open the gate and more in. However, plot wise they can only go when Ichigo and co. have landed back down.

Bleach Chapter 619: The Betrayer

This chapter again has given me fixed feelings. The combat in the latter half is great. But the King doing his obligatory “All this time you were fighting me” speech makes me sigh so hard, i skipped last weeks summary. Especially when he ends it with the

619a

“It’s all because you and I, Ichigo… we have the same blood flowing through our veins.” had me crinch a bit.

Anyway, Ichigo starts to attack Ywach, who still is playing the high skilled “mindgame” with Ichigo. Out of nowhere Yourichi gets an arrow in the shoulder. So that was the end of her adventure.

And it was shot by the only guy actually using his quincy bow as of late. Ishida! Unlike the characters I was not shocked. For some reason the barrier breaks

619b

The king knocks Ichigo back and guns for the Soul King. Yourichi attacks the ywach with some balls(maybe one of Kisuke’s tool), too lazy to deal with her himself he request the aid of the vacuum cleaner(or something black hole like powers); Parnkjas, who quite effectively twists her arms.

Ichigo comes back to stop Ywach from trying to rip Kamikake of the remains of the Soul King. But his has to counter another arrow from Ishida. Surprisingly Ywach does not seem to have a hard time at all to rip the Kamikake off further damaging the palace.

I don’t know why Uryuu is helping Ywach at this point. We all know he wants revenge on the Soul King. But I guess Bleach needs a Naruto / Sasuke fight, or has Uryuu simply messed up earlier by drinking Ywach’s blood making him the fated successor.

Bleach Manga Chapter 617: Return of the God

Chapter 617: Return of the God

First off.. Holy shit that coloured page. so awesome.

Then… well… gross stuff. The Kamikake forms from inside Ukitake reaching higher and higher toward the remains of the Soul King. It apparently reached him as the quakes stopped.

617a

The King’s reaction is not quite how I expected. I expected him to look more than Ichigo does. It seems (for some reason) the Kamikake could not been ‘seen’ by his eyes. Ywach still stands within yourichi’s trap of wires.

He reacts quite strangely asking why the right arm of the Soul King himself is meddling in this affair. As if it’s been banned before.

Down below they get the hurry up and with the help of the Vaizard squad and Mayuri’s hidden REiatsu amplifier they go ahead and open the gate.

As all that is happening. Kyouraku intends to talk to Aizen and unlock the ‘mouth’ seal allowing the man to speak.

617b

immediately however, Aizen walk forth approaching him… but of course the question being. Is it really Aizen, is he pulling an illusion straight away, how does his ability work since he lost his zanpaktou. Maybe Ywach released him.

What is your theory?

Bleach Chapter 616: Mimihagi-Sama

Chapter 616: Mimihagi-Sama
Read Chapter

So… I wasn’t quite off on my theory of last week of what Ukitake was doing. He wasnt there when the Soul King was made, or else the events surrounding him wouldn’t have been able to happen.

Anyway… I really cannot wait for Ywach’s expression when he finds out the Soul King isn’t quite dead, and the wave of destruction will(i assume) stop. We see a bit of the destruction going in the various locations. Hueco Mundo and Soul Society seem to crumble much faster than the real world.

I guess the real world will fall apart when Hueco Mundo and SS will drop from existence.

616a

We also see some random Quincy goons wondering if this is the his Majesty’s true will. Bazz-B looks quite dejected. After all that we get to the interesting part. Ukitake did not hesitate for second to whatever he had being carrying with him all this time.

He drops the bomb by stating he will replace the Soul King. A dark essence comes forth from his back and starts a chant to awaken it further.

Mimihagi-sama.

616b

‘The power of thine eyes which is buried within my organs. Abandon my organs open thyself.’

It seems Ukitake has attracted lung disease from a very young age. A lethal illness that was fated to kill then. But it didn’t. He then goes on to describe Mimihagi sama as a grotesque, one-eyed God, whose legend circulated throughout the “reverse bone” of district. It apparently can bestow divine protection upon those who sacrifice everything but the one eye it already possesses.

The most interesting thing being said is that it is worshipped as the right arm of the Soul King. Ukitake’s parents brought him to Mimihagi’s shrine and offered his lungs as sacrifice.

The captain screams in pain as the Kamikake ritual is going on, creating himself to be a vessel for Mimihagi-sama.

Then, on the final page. Our devious little Captain-commander Kyouraku is about to have a little chat with Aizen Sousuke himself.

Bleach Chapter 615 : All is Lost

Chapter 615: All is Lost

Okay.. so… things are looking pretty bad. Though Karin seems pretty unfazed and keeps on cleaning the house. Oh well… good to see these two for a few panels.Especially since that little hinting to her seeing ghosts never went anywhere.

615a

Then on the title panel, the Soul King is referred too as the Soubou (twin pupils) because… I don’t really know. Ichigo wonders why he couldn’t stop his body from cutting the Soul King and why he couldn’t simply let go of the blade.

For convenience sake(because that is what it kind of feels like) ywach can, apart from the seeing the future now he can also steal all power. A feature he displayed before when he re-distrubted the power to feed his elite guards that whiped out the rest of the Zero Squad.

Now he can also give his reiatsu to another. This feed the Quincy blood already flowing in Ichigo to cut down the Soul King in ‘anger and revenge’. Ichigo manages to break free from the hold and attacks the Ywach, who questions his reason to fight, as Soul Society has been eradicated.

The people down below wonder what is going, Kisuke’s keen mind realizes what has happened above. The crumbling world means that Soul King’s has died. It seems this distruction will happen everywhere at once.

615b

We go back to the King who interestingly says that the Soul King was created by Soul Society itself to bring stability to the chaotic mess of traffic caused by souls traveling in and out.

Without him in place, everything will return to its former existence Ywach says. What that actually is, is a bit of a guess, but an easy assumption to make is that the earth will return to a cold dead rock in space with no life on it.

Yourichi makes a move to keep the King from moving as she asks Inoue to use her ability to heal the king. Finally someone with a clear head and a good idea.

unfortunately, not even Inoue’s godlike ability can heal the entity that is the Soul King.

615c

Now on the final, page, the final panel, something is happening to Ukitake. Something related to what he and the new Captain Commander were talking about. It already seems it automatically takes effect on his body as something seems to swallow him up.

It could be something related to the Kamikake(devine presence) referred to by Ukitake and Kyouraku in a little convo in chapter 605.

It’s possible it might revert something, putting the soul King back in place and allowing Ichigo another shot at defending its life from Ywach. I’m a bit curious tbh. Ukitake and Kyouraku were part of the Gotei 13 since its inception if I am not mistaken, which means they could haven been around when the Soul King was ‘born’.

It’s interesting to see if this Kamikake is what created the world, Soul Society, Hueco Mundo.. Heaven and hell. It’s possible, the Soul King was a ‘creation’ of Soul Society.

Boy.. it’s another one of those chapter that started that has me in dubio. Again was enjoying the first part then going.. urrghh… at the second half… leaving me a bit wordless..

So basically.. things are slowly being set up down below still when Hiyori and the remaining vaizards arrive, Hiyori carrying a canister of goo. Which looks like a liquid, but apparently looks like a liquid but it isn’t. It’s basicly Shinigami Grease(no copyrighted I hope.)

Then Urahara asks them to change their attire to Shinigami robes

614a

Hiyori is quite rebellious about it whilst the others accept the suggestion with no argument. Love just picks her up and drags her with.

So… Urahara is going to create a gateway between where they stand, straight into the Royal Palace grounds. He makes is sounds quite grim, with the possible no way back yadda yadda speech much to the annoyance of Soi Fon… then everybody else…

then comes.. this part..

614b

Team Ichigo and Yourichi and the three ppl that have reason to be facing Ywach, but need to be there.. because Ishida is also there…

And Ywach has activated his Madara mode(the reference has already been made in the comments of my previews summary. Then Ichigo grabs the sword, which enrages his quincy blood… and oh my god… is this really fucking necessary? I don’t even… maybe I shouldn’t write these on Friday night…

Kubo? Answer me next week please…

So, the monk says something odd, in his own thoughts… letting them go have their fight anyway, even though he knows… and Juha knows.. that ‘mere’ humans can’t win against the Quincy King.

613a

Back down on ground level. Ukitake has arrived with Vice Captain Kotetsu and old Yamada-san. The captain’s been running about healing up everybody noting that everybody but Zaraki is able to move again. Of course Zaraki is already back on his feet.

It quickly becomes obvious what he wants to know. Where is Yachiru… Which is still a good question. He decides to go back out but is stopped by Kisuke. Then Nanao Ise, the lt. to Kyouraku stands in front of him reminding him of the responsibilities of his a captain.

613b

And she actually succeeds. Everybody that has assembled(Mayuri still hasn’t bothered showing up yet), every is given an orb, which they must pour their reiatsu into. We wont get a launch yet.

We do, however, see the arrival of Ichigo and co in the palace grounds. Ywach seems a bit annoyed with the monk, who more or less told them to go for it. He doesn’t mince words and tells Ichigo he will die by his hands.
