This chapter was somewhat lite, but it did make my heart beat faster. After getting into the Valley of Screams and moving in closer to the Soul King Palace, Ichigo and his group are now about to get out there and face the Quincies once more. At the same time, the Shinigami in Seireitei have completed a gate to the city of the Soul King Palace and are also about to get out there.
Apparently, both parties will arrive within the perimeter of the Soul King Palace. I’m guessing they will attack at the same time? But, I was actually anxious because what if the Quincies would also attack immediately after both parties would arrive within the Soul King Palace’s city? It’s like seeing a tactical strategy game!
Once Ichigo and his party arrived, they noticed that the surroundings look very different. They actually thought that they were in the wrong place but actually, it really is the Soul King Palace’s city. Apparently, Yhwach has reshaped the entire place to reflect Quincy architecture and landscape, which obviously irritates Yoruichi Shihōin.
This development made me wonder what has happened to Ichibē Hyōsube. Has he truly given up, believing that there is no way they could defeat Yhwach?
Seriously, I really am wondering how Ichigo and everyone will be able to defeat Yhwach. This truly is one of those manga stories where you cannot seem to find a way out to overcome the antagonist. Even if we have not seen Ichigo’s true power yet, I mean, come on, he is still from the human world, only with the combined powers of Shinigami and Quincies. And let us not forget that Yhwach can see into the future. How can you top THAT!?
Chapter Disappointment: Nothing to be disappointed here, actually. It still is a slow story, but we did get to see a reformed Soul King Palace.
Chapter Approval: The lite moments between Ichigo and Riruka Dokugamine.
Chapter Witticism: Riruka Dokugamine: not really funny moments, but some scenes to smile about. 🙂
Chapter Cliffhanger: I want to see how the Shinigami from Seireitei would react to the reformed Soul King Palace.
