The old fuck tried to stop the Vandenreich from living but they are too fast for him. Their reiatsu completely gone from Seiretei which indicated that their movements are not affected by the Shakonmaku. Then Sasakibe, with his dying breath (kidding - bad guy don't die in Bleach remember?) revealed to the old fuck that these antagonists can do bankai.
Ho? Interesting indeed. Now they are dealing with some organization whose members have Quincy, hollow/arrancar and shinigami power combined? Hahahaha no wonder these son of bitches were so confident that they can annihilate Soul Society in 5 days.
Back in the real world, Ivan was having a hard time with Ichigo. Now, that is one haywired plan. Ivan just couldn't believe that Ichigo still has his bankai. He mumbled out loud so naturally Ichigo heard every words he said. For some reason, Ichigo wanted to drag Ivan back home for further questioning. This was when a shadow split from Ivan. He said something like the shadow only chooses the chosen one. Ivan used the shadow to run away. He pretty much disappeared into thin air.
But they do have a place to go. They went back to their "camping site" and thus it was revealed how the antagonists this time around look like. Just like the arrancar, the members of Vandenreich don't see eye to eye with each other. They too have a leader who seems ruthless as fuck, and sort of reminds me of Aizen when he cut off Grimmjow's arm.
Whoa wait a minute. Don't get excited too soon because it is certainly not Aizen. He looks more like he's from the SPARTA era than anything else and kinda reminds me of Shunsui as well.
Kubo has revealed 2 of the Vandenreich faces but he has yet to properly introduce to us who these guys are. One thing for sure, Karakura Town and Soul Society are in for one hell of a bloody mess. At the moment, it seems like they are totally fucked.
Oh I also forgot to mention that Kubo referred to the antagonist leader as the Empire's King. What does that mean? Is he the king of Soul Soceity? Is this arc going to be about the King's Key? So many questions need to be answered...
