Events on small Island that involves a tragedy leads the main character, Shinpei, back to his hometown which he hasn’t visited for two years. Upon his return, inexplicable events occur starting from the boat ride before even reaching the Island. A vision of sorts transcending the physical initiates the obscurity hiding behind the peculiarities ongoing within the Island. It commences the viewer off from an inquisitive entry and as the mystery deepens, it becomes clear the story isn’t exactly what it appears. A grander terror encapsulates the enigma sourced from the tragedy that led Shinpei back to the Island. Were circumstances planned to draw Shinpei back to the Island or was his arrival that now seeks to disentangle the darkness a fortuitous fate?Continue reading
Even though Shunsui basically educated Lille on the functionality of his zanpakutou, I don’t really mind. The situation and Shunsui’s zanpakutou warranted Lille needing to know the “rules of the game” in order for Shunsui’s zanpakutou to fully function. And keeping Lille in the dark about the abilities of his zanpakutou wouldn’t have helped as Lille had expressly mentioned that the Sternritter had done comprehensive research on the Shinigami’s zanpakutou’s and their abilities shown throughout the battles they have had so far (information gathered from the Spirit King’s palace?). With both parties restricted by the “rules”, the victor will be decided on how one plays the specific game.
So that is how the Quincy and Shinigami worlds are connected, what an interesting explanation. To think that two realities are existing within one space, it is a hard explanation to wrap logic around but the use of the “shadow” comparison does help to express just how the two worlds are connected. I’m curious to see how much each of the two realities overlap with each other in that dimension. How exactly did the Quincy come about finding this so called “shadow” world of Seireitei and how exactly does it work when you intend to connect to the Seireitei reality.
