Bleach 508 – Like a Raging Fire
I had to read this chapter twice because the first time I went through it, I could only concentrate on the size of Captain Yamamoto’s teeth – they’re huge!
Bleach has been a tease lately with the captain commander’s super slow power buildup, and this chapter was no exception. Like last week’s chapter, this one was very uneventful with nothing but another ability revealed, however, this time, Juha Bach also got some time to shine. I’m not sure if his new power, Kirchen Lied, is going to help though. Captain Yamamoto’s final revelation for this chapter involved necromancy. The holy light of Juha Bach’s Kirchen Lied doesn’t seem strong enough to wipe out an entire armada of corpses, and on top of that, the captain is still on fire.
Something quite interesting that was said at the beginning of the chapter was that this Bankai, if used too long, could end up killing the wielder himself. There have been a lot of speculations going around concerning the captain commander’s future. I, like many other, can actually see the captain dying in this battle, but with the way things have been going, I was starting to question whether my theory was right or not. No one has been able to weaken Captain Yamamoto yet, and if the Vandenreich leader can’t stand a chance – who will? So, knowing that the captain commander’s Bankai affects him, I can actually see him becoming a victim of his own powers if this battle keeps going on.
I do hope the captain commander can keep the battle up for a bit longer. I’m quite interested in his army of ten trillion corpses, and I wonder how the captain feels about having killed so many lives and using them for his own wars. I’m not going to judge him for that, but I’d like to know how he mentally handles this ability. He doesn’t seem burdened by the army, only physically exhausted. Aside from the moral aspect of it all, the army itself seems very impressive and I’m really excited about the upcoming chapter. Hopefully, this army will prove to be useful and do something cool.
This is actually my last Bleach post. I’d like to thank you all for the support you’ve given me the past few weeks; I appreciate it very much and it means a lot to me. Having said that, I’m now returning this category to Prooof who has returned from his trip. Once again, thank you guys!
