Everything is still gloomy and inflicts despair. At least, we do NOT get to see Yhwach’s face, because I really am annoyed with this antagonist. Then again, there still is no light of hope in sight. Although, in the last page, we see Sōsuke Aizen, which I really do not trust. I mean, he had evil intentions before, how can you trust him? But you have to admit, he really is powerful and gifted; I just wonder if he can match up to Yhwach.
So, when Yhwach said he was going to take what belonged to the Soul King in the last chapter, he meant to absorb the Soul King’s powers. Apparently, he also absorbed Mimihagi, The Right Hand of the Soul King. And as Yhwach is dissolved into these powers, small, black, one-eyed creatures start multiplying and go down to Seireitei and attack the Shinigami. One of Yhwach’s henchmen explain that these creatures, which manifest the freed full power of the Soul King, have now become enemies of the Shinigami. This got me thinking, if Yhwach takes over, does that mean that the Zero Division / Ichibē Hyōsube will adhere to Yhwach and become enemies of the Shinigami in Seireitei? I mean, the Zero Division is supposed to protect the Soul King and the Soul Family, right? That is, assuming that the Zero Division has not really been eliminated.
By the way, with Mimihagi absorbed by Yhwach, Jūshirō Ukitake falls. Even so, I do hope he is okay. He must not die!
Chapter Disappointment: This has really been a long arc. Plus, I still cannot get over the fact that some of my favorite Bleach characters have been killed, like Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto and Rōjūrō Ōtoribashi.
Chapter Approval: None.
Chapter Witticism: None.
Chapter Cliffhanger: What do they intend to do with Aizen; he does show potential, but I still do not trust him. And by the way, where is the Soul Family? The Zero Division confirmed their existence, did they not? Also, I do hope Ichigo and his group are okay. I cannot wait for Yhwach to be defeated! So many characters have been killed off!
