Last chapter arms were removed and bankai’s were stolen, an average day in the Bleach world if you ask me! The Vandenreich have officially declared war on Soul Society, promising Yamamoto of its destruction. Seeing the little power that we have been shown, it definitely looks possible. Let’s see how Soul Society responds to this after the jump.
Looks like the way Soul Society is responding to this threat is by having a funeral. Yup, it looks like Chojiro has indeed passed away thanks to the Vandenreich’s giant arrow to the chest. I guess its possible for Kubo to kill off one of his characters, I wonder who’s next on the reaper’s list? Now Ichigo knows about this information via a telephone call to Ryunosuke from Soul Society. I don’t blame them, Soul Society needs all the help they can get.
As Ichigo wonders off thinking things over, he comes into contact with Nel via a Goku headbutt to the stomach. Since this manga is ending after all, it does make sense for us to see her before the end, so I am pleased. It looks like Hueco Mundo is in it deep if Nel has to escape to Earth for help.
We learn that Hueco Mundo has been taken over by the Vandenreich. More specifically, they are using the Vasto Lorde Harribel as some kind of arrancars baby making machine of some sorts. The leader of the Vandenreich really is a jerk, killing his own men for no real reason.
I have a funny feeling that the Vandenreich leader could possibly solo Soul Society by himself, since he can pretty much own the people that owned Soul Society previous to this. Also, what ever happened to Kon?
THE VERDICT 3/5
Things are heating up now that the Vandenreich have taken over Hueco Mundo. However, this also means that Soul Society might also have some allies in this battle as well, like Grimmjow or any other surviving arrancar.
