Overpowering and incomprehensible, the King of Darkness played with fate at the amusement of his whims yet through his unstoppable reproach at the form of existence, the pride of his supremacy deformed the interpretation of the very fates he sought to reform. Blinded and distracted, Yhwach fell prey to the sight of his own fate. It is quite ironic, without his ego that led him on this path of destruction, he would have been godlike, but as it is, he is just a flawed man driven by his ego with a power too great for his own capability. The moment Yhwach felt nothing could stop him was the moment he opened the door to his own defeat.
I’ve got to hand it to Kubo-sensei, the pun he came up with in regards to Candice’s strongest attack was quite amusing. A play on the electrical attacks Candice uses and the execution she so desires to pass on Ichigo. I’m glad Kubo-sensei is taking time to flesh out the female Sternritter, specifically Candice, she has a cool power and it is getting some nice coverage in her battle against Ichigo regardless of whether she is actually forcing Ichigo into a corner or not. Although with war still going on inside Seireitei, now seems like a good time for Ichigo to put his foot down and end this fight so he can proceed to face Yhwach and end the destruction.
This final arc in Bleach has seriously won me over and with each chapter, it gets better and better, it is such a pleasure to read. All the separated threads created and developed in past chapters have started to weave together and have begun to form an image that embodies just what Bleach is about.
Isshin and Kisuke finally get some coverage…but it’s only for two pages and it only shows them walking down the street with grim expressions on their faces with Isshin carrying some sword emanating a strange sort of energy – is that a form of reiatsu that will help kick-start the Shinigami powers in Ichigo and awaken Zangetsu? Well whatever is happening with Isshin and Kisuke, we’ll have to wait until they are covered again – probably in 3 or so chapters time…hopefully the next time they are covered, more substance is revealed…
