Mashiro continues to beat down Wonderweiss. She boasts about her fifteen hour mask limit and ignores Kensei’s warnings. However, her mask breaks unexpectadly, and she gets knocked out. Kensei takes up the fight against Wonderweiss and releases his bankai Tekken Tachikaze. Hiyori speaks to Aizen about death and shinigami, and how she enjoyed life back in Soul Society. She hates Aizen for making her hurt his friends, and wishes for revenge. She tries to kill Aizen, but Gin cuts her down. Shinji is devastated and screams for Ichigo, knowing Orihime can heal her. In Hueco Mundo, Inoue is healing Ishida, and Ichigo rushes to help Renji, Rukia, and Chad who are still fighting Yammy. Yammy easily defeats all three of them just as Ichigo arrives.
I don’t know if it would happen in real life, but every time someone gets thrown into the ground, there is a massive explosion with buildings flying everywhere. Of course, their endurance is far too strong to get more than a scratch or two from flying through multiple several blocks of buildings. Mashiro, Kensei and Wonderweiss all rely on hand to hand combat throwing their opponents through walls, which is drastically infective from what is shown. A large part of the fight just looks like the characters smacking each other around with little damage done besides to the environment. In the end Kensei pulls out his bankai, but we don’t really get to see much of it this time besides a cool explosion.
Aizen as usual is standing there in complete calm with a smug look on his face. Hiyori gives a long emotional speech about all the bad things Aizen had done. She gives into her feelings and charges Aizen, but of course is instantly owned after getting impaled in the abdomen. She should have at least put on her mask before attacking, but it probably wouldn’t have made a difference. I am pretty darn sure she was completely cut in half in the manga, and the change here really undercuts the impact of her defeat, since Starrk got stabbed through the chest and kept on fighting like nothing happened. Shinji has lost his cool as well, crying for help as Hiyori is dying. I don’t know how they are supposed to fight Aizen really; anything they attack is likely to be an illusion. If I recall correctly, his shikai can control all five senses, so just incapacitating all his opponents with pain would solve his problems pretty quickly.
As for Yammy, he’s certainly getting pretty strong as well. His six pack has six packs, and he completely dominates Renji, Rukia, and Chad even as they work together. It’s just a problem of power-level however, and captain level shinigami could handle him as he doesn’t really have any skill. He fights relying on his physical attributes to smash in his opponents, and with only raw power and no brain he won’t get far.
P.S. I found the omake with the gigai mannequins hilarious for some reason
