Reading this chapter opens a flood gate of memories of the time when I used to RP for The Official Gotei 13 group. Having Captains meeting and then Vice Captains discussing of recent matters... it made me missed those guys that spend my sleepless nights with, role playing as a shinigami (specifically the 6th Division Captain) of the Soul Society. Dare I say that it is definitely one of my most enjoyable and memorable moments for my mid 20's. I wished I am a hikki again so just that I can relive that moment.
Anyway, the chapter starts with a scene that we aren't actually familiar with - the Vice Captains having a meeting of their own as they wait the Captains meeting to be over with. Everyone especially Rukia (♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ RRRRRRUUUUUUUKKKKKKIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥) are anxious to find out the outcome of the Captains meeting. Kira on the other hand is more calm as he asked everyone of what they think with the missing people at District 64. He thinks it has nothing to do with the invasion.
In the previous chapter, during Yumichika and Ikkaku's investigation, they found that the people gathered at one place before they vanished, based on the footprints that they found. Some of the footprints are that of sandals which mean shinigami was involved because the people living there are too poor to even afford a sandal. Kira boldly said that he suspected that the 12th Division is somewhat involved. Heh, this totally reminds me of Daniel. He would love this plot twist.
Kira asked Nemu directly about this but of course being so loyal to Mayuri, Nemu told him that she knew nothing and believe that her Captain/Father didn't do anything wrong. Well, I hope Kira is right because I always suspect Mayuri to have a mind of his own when it comes to Soul Society. After all, he kinda have a hate-love relationship with it.
Unfortunately though we have to wait for any progress because Kubo decided to bring us back to Ichigo and his group of clowns. He was surprised that Kirge Opie knew his name. Well, that should ring some warning bells inside of his head, that he is walking right into the lion's den but Ichigo being Ichigo... he never really care. After all, every other enemies ended up ALWAYS looking for him.
While fighting these bad eggs, Ichigo finally realized the kind of enemy he is facing with: quincies. They don't used sonido and shunpo but hirenkyakyu. I guess it's a quincy trademark just like sonido is to arrancar and shunpo is to shinigami. I would love to learn the difference though. Anyone?
The news that Ichigo is already in Hueco Mundo reached Buckbeard in no time at all. Obviously this pleases him to no end. Now that his biggest worry is busy in Hueco Mundo, he decided that this is the perfect time to attack Soul Society. I gotta say that I like how his mind works. That's very good strategy indeed.
I would lol'd so hard if the Vandenreich attacked Soul Society while the Captains are still having a meeting. That would totally be like us when we RPed. The Hueco Mundo arrancars loved to invade us when we were having meetings. We never get to end our meeting properly LOL.
And in the meeting they are still... and Mayuri confirmed Kira's suspicion. He reported to the old fuck that he killed 28000 people to keep the balance of soul without his permission. As usual, the old fuck tries to blame everyone else but himself but Mayuri argued that things won't be this bad if the old fuck heeded his warning when Ishida first came to Soul Society.
I just love how Mayuri handles thing. There is a big goofy smile plastered on my face right now. Apparently the old fuck, Mayuri and perhaps all the Captains knew who the fuck Buckbeard is because the old fuck failed to kill him during that Quincy war 1000 years ago. Hmm, no wonder he came back to destroy Soul Society.
You reap what you sow, you old useless fuck!
