The rescue arc to save our buddy Dondochakka has begun. I’m telling you now that Dondochakka had better transform into either a hot chick, or a powerful warrior by the time this is through; though most likely he will probably end up dying. Anyways, let’s check up on our heroes as they make their way into Hueco Mundo.
This chapter is all about how Hueco Mundo has transformed into a true hell hole thanks to the Vandenreich. Most people are now quick to point out the resemblance of the Vandenreich to the Nazi party. While this is true, I also think they highly resemble Imperial Japan as well during the WW2 era. They have abducted and killed almost every hollow and arrancar in Hueco Mundo. The ones they do kidnap they do awful things like force them to kill each other, or fulfill whatever test the current commander desires in order to join their forces.
Menoly Mallia and Koly Avirrne were two of these arrancar who had past the test to join the Vandenreich by standing up to the hardened Captain Kirge Opie. They were unsuccessful in beating him, but that saved their lives in the long run. What also saved their lives was the three beautiful fraccion of Harribel: Emilou, Franceska, and Cyan. It looks like this final arc, all the previous enemies Ichigo and friends had to face will surly become their friends.
This chapter was extremely short, or at least it felt that way. I was hoping that Urahara would explain a little more to Ichigo about the current events, and not just leave everyone in the dark like we are used to.
THE VERDICT 3/5
This chapter was rated a little better than it really should have been because it introduced us to the Vandenteich, showing us just how brutal they are and how we really should be afraid of them. Will Ichigo and friends help the fraccion, or will they stumble upon someone else that needs help?
