Атака на Королевский двор.Править
Высоко над землёй большое облако пролетает в небе. Там слуги Королевской Семьи сопровождают путешествие огромным количеством караванов и артистов в окружении Королевской охраны. Так и проходит их таинственный путь. А внизу, на земле, несколько Синигами, наблюдают за ним. Они должны охранять его. Неожиданно лейтенант Рангику Мацумото появляется позади них и просит доложить о текущей обстановке.
Докладывая, что все в порядке, один из Синигами спросил о том, что из себя представляет Королевская печать, и почему они её охраняют. И лейтенант объясняет, что это величайшее сокровище Королевской семьи, и что даже взгляд на нее кого-то постороннего карается по всей строгости закона. И до этого времени оно никогда не появлялось во внешнем мире, и неизвестно какой силой она обладает. Так же она говорит, что несмотря на то, что они не знают что это, задача Десятого отряда охранять Королевскую печать.
Вернувшись к своему капитану, Тоширо Хицугае, Мацумото докладывает, что все в полном порядке. Говоря, насколько сильно это производит впечатление вблизи, Хицугая цинично отвечает, что главные никогда не ходят без таких фанфар. Вдруг их охватывает странное чувство перед ударом в один из Королевских караванов. Увидев это, капитан и лейтенант немедленно отправляются туда, чтобы устранить угрозу.
Ворвавшись в огне, два электрических шара быстро расправляются с охраной. Ударив наэлектризованным хлыстом, все участники погибают в результате взрыва, перед тем как столкнуться с Мацумото. Она незамедлительно защищает себя своим Зампакто, на который наматывается этот хлыст. Дым рассеивается и появляется девочка-Арранкар с синими волосами, пускающая электрический ток по хлысту в попытке убить Мацумото. Перед тем, как ток достигнет меча, лейтенант использует свой Шикай, делая атаку бесполезной. И Мацумото атакует.
Возвращаясь к месту происшествия, второй шар, состоящий из пламени появляется из-под обломков, и сразу же начинает сжигать оставшихся путешественников, и перед тем, как Хицугая вмешивается, тут же появляется огненный шар принадлежащий другой девочке-Арранкару с красными волосами. Требуя объяснения кто они такие, он замораживает её катану, но девочка немедленно отскакивает и, смеясь, убегает. Хицугая бросается за ней в погоню, но останавливается на сломанной карете.
Капитан чувствует огромную духовную духовную силу и тут неизвестный пронзает его Зампакто. Хицугая отпрыгивает и видит, что преступник - это Синигами в маске. Тоширо удивляется и защищается от атак неизвестного. Мацумото прибывает на место происшествия, ища Королевскую печать. А наверху человек в маске говорит, что эта борьба с Хицугаей навевает воспоминания, и капитан пытается снять с маску с его лица.
Но попытка капитана не оправдывается успехом и неизвестный в маске и две девочки-Арранкары убегают. Шокированная лейтенант Мацумото наблюдает за капитаном, который принимает решение преследовать преступников. Остальные Синигами пытаются потушить огонь и говорят ей, что они понесли серьезные потери, но лейтенант была все еще в шоке из-за внезапного исчезновения капитана.
Десятый отряд под домашним арестом!Править
Позже Ичиго Куросаки натыкается на барьер. Прорвавшись сквозь него, Ичиго видит мертвых людей и обломки от карет. Его тут же окружил отряд Тайных операций, настроенный враждебно. Но вмешательство капитана Сой Фон спасает Ичиго от неприятностей. Она говорит, что это она поставила этот барьер и спросила, что Куросаки тут делает, но он сразу спрашивает о произошедшем здесь. Капитан второго отряда говорит, что обычно они не посвящают временных Синигами в такие дела, но всё равно рассказывает ему всё.
Снаружи барьера Урюу Исида замечает свет от вторжения Ичиго. А тем временем Куросаки шокирован объяснением происшествия и пытается задать дополнительные вопросы, но Сой Фон и барьер исчезают. Исида расспрашивает Ичиго о случившемся. И вдруг начинает падать снег. Урюу говорит, что кто-то так скрывает свою реацу. И Хицугая, появившись из-за деревьев, падает с ног, произнося лишь одно слово - Кусака.
Тем временем, в Сообществе Душ на собрании капитанов Готей 13 (в присутствии лейтенанта Мацумото) обсуждается данная ситуация. Давая отчет, что они не нашли Королевскую Печать, Сой Фон предполагает, что капитан Хицугая намерено скрыл свою реацу и обвиняет его в измене. Не выдержав, Мацумото прерывает доклад капитана. Она защищает Хицугаю, несмотря на доказательства, подтверждающие его виновность. Тут выступает капитан-главнокомандующий Ямамото и накладывает арест на весь Десятый отряд, так же говоря, что отряд может быть в дальнейшем расформирован.
Не признавая этого решения, Мацумото пытается взять все ответственность на себя, так как считает, что никто из отряда не виновен, но Ямамото напоминает о её положении и брать вину на себя это глупо и бессмысленно. Главной целью становятся поиски Королевской Печати и захват предателя - капитана Хицугаи. В казармах Десятого отряда лейтенант Первого отряда Чоуджиро Сасакибе передает приказ главнокомандующего: никто не имеет права покидать казармы и все Зампакто должны быть конфискованы.
Ренджи Абарай и Рукия Кучики наблюдают, как Мацумото отдает свой Зампакто, хоть и весь отряд протестует. Пытаясь утешить Рангику, они говорят, что Хицугая скоро вернется, с грустью упомянув, что все близкие ей люди уходят, не говоря ей куда. Так же как Ичимару Гин. Но Рукия и Ренджи вынуждены уйти, однако Мацумото успевает попросить Рукию узнать об истории Капитана Хицугая и найти связь между ним и неизвестным в маске.
Предатель-беглец Тоширо ХицугаяПравить
Во время сна Хитсугаи, он вспоминает те дни, когда он еще учился в Академии Синигами. Именно здесь, он встретил молодого студента, который хотел стать сильнее и посветить всю жизнь Сообществу Душ. Благодаря тому, что они постоянно проводили время вместе, два молодых студента стали друзьями-соперниками. Неизвестный студент говорит, что Тоширо вправду гений, но в следующий раз ему не удастся его обойти. "Мы ведь всегда будем друзьями, правда?" - спросил неизвестный. Вдруг воспоминания резко обрываются и Хицугая видит момент, где убивают его друга, что и заставило его проснуться.
Оказавшись в Клинике Куросаки, Ичиго входит в комнату и рассказывает, как он нашел капитана без сознания и принес его к себе домой. Пытаясь расспросить капитана, Ичиго получает раздражающий его ответ, что это не его дело. Заявив, что он больше не нуждается в помощи Куросаки, капитан решает вернуться, для того, чтобы найти Королевскую печать и добавляет, что это не то, чем должен заниматься временный синигами. Утверждая, что ему нужно отдохнуть, Хицугая снова ложится и Ичиго уходит из комнаты, зная о намерениях капитана сбежать.
Не дождавшись утра, Хицугая покидает дом Ичиго, оставляя свой капитанский хаори на столе. Пытаясь уйти незамеченным, он натыкается на Ичиго, который уже ждет его, утверждая, что он не должен уходить. Расспрашивая о действиях и мотивах Хицугаи, Ичиго интересуется о Кусаке, парне из воспоминаний Тоширо. В попытке все-таки сбежать, капитан угрожает Ичиго своим Зампакто, когда тот пытался остановить его. Куросаки говорит, что у Хицугаи есть два пути: сдаться отряду Тайных операций или же вернуться в дом Ичиго и восстановить свои силы.
Перед ответом капитана, ранее появлявшиеся две девочки-Арранкара, кидают огненный шар прямо между Ичиго и Тоширо. Требуя убрать руки от Хицугаи, они угрожают убить Ичиго, если он встанет на их пути. Чуть позднее, Ичиго пытается узнать у Хицугаи, что происходит, но Тоширо нападает на него. Умоляя Ичиго пропустить его, Хицугая отбрасывает его на площадку, давая девочкам-Арранкарам атаковать Куросаки. И следующий огненный шар, а затем и электрическая струя попадают прямо в Ичиго.
Когда Ичиго с кровавыми ранами на голове поднимается, девочки соединяют свои атаки, чтобы убить Куросаки более сильной атакой, но он кидает в ответ Гетсугу Теншоу, чтобы отразить удар и тут же кидает второй, от которого Арранкары едва уклоняются. Не веря в силы Ичиго, две девочки уходят с поля битвы, и Хицугая пытается уйти за ними. Несмотря на его попытку, Ичиго пытатся встать, но теряет сознание, смотря, как Хицугая уходит.
Later in the day, Ichigo is found unconscious by Renji and Rukia. Woken up through rather unorthodox methods, Ichigo quickly realizes Hitsugaya is long gone, and that it has been hours since he lost consciousness. Recounting what transpired back at the Kurosaki Clinic, Rukia asks Renji to return to Soul Society and inquire about the Kusaka that Hitsugaya had mentioned, and to return the captain's haori to Matsumoto. Stating it to be a dirty job, Renji is still forced to go, as Rukia wouldn't be allowed to contact Matsumoto.
Meanwhile, Hitsugaya, unable to catch up with the Arrancar girls, reminisces about the past again. He remembers when he stood before the Central 46, where it was decided only one may wield Hyōrinmaru. Claiming he will abandon the Zanpakutō if that is the case, he is instead forced to fight with Kusaka over the ownership of Hyōrinmaru. Waking from his daze, Hitsugaya is revealed to have been taking shelter in an abandoned, run-down building. Struggling, due to his injury, he limps away from the spot.
Вернувшись в Сообщество душ, Кусака стоит на вершине здания с двумя девочками-Арранкарами, которые стоят на коленях позади него, говоря, что Хицугая не связывался с Готеем 13. Кусака решает пока его не трогать и смотреть, как будут развиваться события дальше, заявив, что пока они обладают одной силой, Хицугая не найдет себе места в Сообществе душ и будет вынужден повиноваться ему, признать его силу.
In the Human World, Ichigo, Rukia, Orihime, Uryū, Sado, Urahara, and Yoruichi are all present for Rukia's elaboration on Hitsugaya's background. Because his time in the Shin'ō Academy was well before Rukia was accepted into the Kuchiki Clan, she herself did not have interactions with the man. Even though they both came from Rukongai, they had been in separate districts, with Hitsugaya instead growing up with Hinamori. However, due to the latter still recuperating, and her having been told any important stories being unlikely, they are unable to pursue her as a lead. Orihime states Hitsugaya must be a strong person, only for Ichigo to quickly retort, asking how a strong person could make the people around him sad. Deciding they can't find out any more through discussion, Urahara asks for the others to search for Hitsugaya in the meantime, while he looks into the matter separately.
Having returned to Soul Society, Renji encounters trouble getting into Matsumoto's residence, as Marechiyo Ōmaeda (on the orders of his captain) is refusing him entry. Bickering for a short time, the arrival of Shunsui Kyōraku and his lieutenant quickly changes Ōmaeda's mind. Once inside, Renji is quick to ask about Kusaka, a name which Matsumoto cannot recall ever being mentioned before, becoming depressed about knowing so little about her captain. Nanao interjects, reminding them of what they do not know, such as what their relationship is, and what Kusaka has to do with the case. Kyōraku asks what will happen if he does, and Matsumoto can only reply with questions. Stating that all one has to do is inquire to find out about somebody else, Nanao is quickly roped into investigating Kusaka herself, but not before she forces her captain into helping too. Finding Nanao's frustration towards her captain amusing, everyone except Renji breaks into laughter.
Focused on the task at hand, Renji, bringing everyone back to earth, presents Matsumoto with the package he had brought with him. Looking inside, Matsumoto finds her captain's haori enclosed, and shocked at the large amount of blood on the inside. Renji states how Ichigo described the severity of the injury, making Matsumoto question why he left despite it. Unsure how to feel, Kyōraku, mentioning how everyone is worried about him, wonders what he is doing.
Ситуация набирает все более серьезные оборотыПравить
Once again remembering the past while unconscious, Hitsugaya relives the moment when Kusaka also acquired Hyōrinmaru as his Zanpakutō spirit. Overjoyed at the idea of having the same power as his friend, Kusaka runs towards Hitsugaya, before the latter awakens, ending the memory. Finding himself nearby a lake, Hitsugaya, begins to travel across the city, using his Zanpakutō as a walking stick, as his injury is now impeding his movement. Slowly but surely, he moves towards the outskirts of the city.
Back in Soul Society, Nanao and Kyōraku are hard at work investigating. Nanao comments on how she had gone through the registry, going back up to 50 years, and in that entire time, there had not been a single soldier named Kusaka. Kyōraku suggests he could have been registered in the Shin'ō Academy, to which Nanao replies that while his name doesn't appear, the year Hitsugaya graduated in is a name short, and the student missing is a resident of North Rukongai. It is here they find the record of a resident named Sōjirō Kusaka, with the only problem being this Kusaka is deceased. Mulling over the possibility he is simply missing from the registry, Kyōraku finds it hard to believe the two could possibly be connected if this Kusaka is listed as deceased. Opting to go for a walk and think things over, Kyōraku leaves Nanao alone to look into how Sōjirō Kusaka met his end.
While out walking, Kyōraku realizes he is being followed by an unknown individual, who is making no attempt to hide their presence. Running into a side ally to lure the stalker in, he is left surprised when the person from behind suddenly vanishes, and a new individual appears ahead. Identifying his target as Shunsui Kyōraku, the unknown man notes that Kyōraku's appearance is misleading of his true capabilities. Wanting to know who it is who knows so much about him, Kyōraku is given no time to think as the man, stating he is about to be cut down by Tōshirō Hitsugaya, launches a wave of ice towards the captain. Recognizing the Zanpakutō, he is shocked and determined to find out the man's true identity. Knocking off the assailant's mask with his next blow, Kyōraku is stunned by what he discovers underneath.
Back in the living world, Hitsugaya has taken up shelter in an isolated shrine, far away from the city. However, he, realizing the Gotei 13 has discovered him, is surrounded by a team led by Lieutenants Hisagi Shūhei and Izuru Kira. who demand the captain gives himself up peacefully, Hitsugaya, emerging from the shrine, refuses to follow the emergency orders given, attacking the two. Kira calmly asks him to stand down, or his his actions will be viewed as rebellion, and Hitsugaya retorts that they are the ones who should stand down. As Hisagi prepares to arrest him, Hitsugaya, declaring him a dead man, overpowers the two, sending Hisagi flying across the court. Recovering from the blow, he activates Bakudō #62. Hyapporankan, launching a hail of large rods towards Hitsugaya. Despite trying to avoid the spell using Shunpo, one of the rods makes contact, going through Hitsugaya's left shoulder. Picking himself up and removing the rod, Hitsugaya, still refusing to back down, resorts to using his Bankai, an action which Ichigo senses from afar.
Back in Soul Society, Kyōraku, revealed to have been defeated by his attacker, is in a critical state. As Retsu Unohana prepares to begin surgery, Nanao is outside the medical room weeping, blaming herself for what befell Kyōraku. Jūshirō Ukitake, arriving in time to comfort her, reminds her that the only way he could have been defeated is if his opponent caught him off guard or was genuinely more powerful, neither being a situation she could hold herself responsible for. He tells her that the Sixth Division is currently investigating, and the attacker will be found and caught. At the scene of the attack, the Sixth Division Captain Byakuya Kuchiki and Renji quickly deduce that the Zanpakutō used is in fact Hyōrinmaru, with all evidence pointing towards Hitsugaya as the assailant. A messenger arrives, informing Ukitake that the men sent to apprehend Hitsugaya in the living world were defeated and left severely injured.
In the living world, Ichigo and his friends lament over the situation, which is quickly spiraling out of control. Desperate, Ichigo asks Uryū to track down Hitsugaya's reiatsu, only to be told he can't do that in the current situation. Having searched for him all night, Orihime falls to her knees from fatigue, causing Ichigo to decide they should head home and rest, resuming their search in the afternoon. As she reassures him she is fine, Rukia interjects, reminding her they won't find him any quicker by being in a hurry.
Encounter with the Substitute ShinigamiПравить
Calling another meeting of the Gotei 13 captains, Yamamoto relays Hitsugaya's recent actions. Suspecting him of defection, a new order is given out: his capture is the top priority, and if he offers resistance, they are to execute him. In the living world, as Ichigo is woken by his alarm clock, Rukia bursts from his cupboard, on the phone with Renji, and relays to him the latest orders. Objecting to the severity of them, Rukia suspects there was no deliberation, and there is no longer a chance for a pardon. Calling out from the phone's speakers, Renji claims they now know who Kusaka is. Repeating Kusaka's full name, he explains that he was a classmate of Hitsugaya who died right before graduating from the Shin'ō Academy. Before being able to continue, the two are attacked as the wall behind them explodes inward, damaging the Kurosaki Clinic. Ichigo jumps out of the wreckage in his Shinigami form, with Rukia following behind, and they quickly find themselves confronted once again by the two Arrancar girls who had attacked earlier, now with their leader present. Noting his abnormal power, both Ichigo and Rukia are shocked when the man reveals his possession of Hyōrinmaru.
Meanwhile in Soul Society, Ukitake watches over his fallen friend, as Kyōraku lies unconscious before him. Commenting on the reverse situation, and how he is meant to be the one sick in bed, Byakuya interrupts by mentioning there is something bothering him; how the attack on Kyōraku, and the squad sent to the living world confronting Hitsugaya himself occurred within too short a span of time for an individual to move between worlds.
Back in the living world, the masked Shinigami reveals his mastery over Hyōrinmaru's Shikai state, launching an ice dragon towards Ichigo while ensnaring his arm with its chain. With the red-haired Arrancar girl keeping Rukia occupied, Ichigo is forced to confront the masked man himself. When asked how he possesses that Zanpakutō, the man states it is because he is Hyōrinmaru's master. Upon crossing blades, Ichigo briefly glimpses into the man's memories, furthering his confusion.
In Soul Society, Ukitake and Byakuya approach Mayuri Kurotsuchi, captain of the Twelfth Division, in his main headquarters in the Shinigami Research Institute. When asked if it is possible for two identical Zanpakutō to exist, he replies by stating a Zanpakutō is born from the soul of a Shinigami, and that it is impossible for a single Zanpakutō spirit to have multiple Shinigami contracts. Ukitake asks if it is possible for Mayuri to prove that it isn't possible, mentioning Hyōrinmaru as the Zanpakutō in question. Elated at the challenge, Mayuri immediately sets his sights on the archives, where he would most likely find the records of the two.
Continuing the fight in the living world, Ichigo defends himself from the blue-haired Arrancar, sending her towards Rukia to deal with. Turning around, he, seeing the masked Shinigami approaching from below, uses Shunpo to narrowly dodge an attack from both him and the red-haired Arrancar from above. Appearing on top of the power lines, Ichigo demands the masked man identify himself. Naming himself as Sōjirō Kusaka, he recounts his murder at the hands of Tōshirō Hitsugaya in the chambers of the Central 46, shocking Ichigo. He explains that since Hitsugaya is now a fugitive in the eyes of Soul Society and has no home to return to, Ichigo remains the only definitive element which could ruin his plan.
Resuming his attack on Ichigo, the two clash swords a second time. This time, the memory Ichigo is exposed to goes on for an extended period of time. Both Hitsugaya and Kusaka are standing in a misty clearing out in the mountains, and both are clearly surprised to see each other. However, the scenery quickly changes to that of the Central 46 chambers, the members reiterating that it is not allowed for two Shinigami to share the same Zanpakutō. In order to decide which of them can retain Hyōrinmaru as their own, they are forced into a fight, where only the winner may leave. Objecting to the idea, Hitsugaya's protests are quickly silenced by the presiding members. Flashing ahead in time, the fight has clearly taken place, as Kusaka is seen covered in ice. Breaking it apart, they are about to resume before a large number of Onmitsukidō members appear. Informing the two that Hitsugaya is the decided owner, they quickly subdue and impale Kusaka from all sides before he can react. Not dying, he continues to fight back, questioning the need for him to die. When one of the Onmitsukidō critically injures Kusaka, his last words plead that he had only fought for the Soul Society before, his Zanpakutō disintegrating in his hands, he falls to the ground dead.
Breaking out of the memory, Ichigo is left dazed as his opponent removes his mask, confirming himself to be the real Sōjirō Kusaka, before launching an immense amount of ice at Ichigo, who jumps back to avoid the onslaught. Stating Hitsugaya will be forced to walk the same path as himself, Kusaka launches another ice dragon, which directly hits Ichigo, who crashes to the ground, and creates an enormous prison of ice. Leaving his Arrancar subordinates to finish off Rukia, Kusaka, putting his mask back on, leaves. Not giving up, Rukia, continuing the fight, launches Hadō #33.Sōkatsui.
Meanwhile, trapped within the ice, Ichigo awakens within his inner world, Zangetsu standing over him. When he asks what it is he saw whenever he crossed swords with Kusaka, Zangetsu refers to it as the resonance of a Zanpakutō revealing its past. Stating it's Soul Society's ultimate law to maintain peace, Ichigo questions whether they take people's feelings into consideration. Finding the idea amusing, Zangetsu states the feelings of an individual are minuscule when compared to the needs of the world; no matter how strong one's opinions are, they are still beyond comparison. When he comments on the unstable nature of humanity, and how it is inevitable that one would become corrupted, Ichigo retorts, stating Hitsugaya would never become like that. Asking how he would know, Ichigo reflects on his feelings when his mother was killed, and how he had affected the people around him. Realizing Hitsugaya is going through the same thing as him, Ichigo understands what the former is trying to do.
Outside of his inner world, Ichigo, awakening, activates his Bankai. Rukia and the Arrancar girls who had been fighting this entire time are surprised by his sudden revival. When asked where Kusaka went, Rukia apologizes about his escape. Stating they need only know defeat the twins, Ichigo tells Rukia he now knows what Hitsugaya is trying to do, and that he needs to tell him something, no matter what happens.
The Assault on Soul SocietyПравить
In an industrial building far away, Hitsugaya makes his way to the lowest level, where he encounters Kusaka, the latter finally unmasking himself before Hitsugaya. As Kusaka reminisces on the nature of the Gotei 13, and Hitsugaya's reasons for staying, Hitsugaya tells him to leave the others out of it, and to tell him where the Ōin is hidden. Revealing to have had it the entire time, Kusaka, activating the treasure, explains it is the key to realizing his dream. As Hitsugaya questions how Kusaka knows about the Ōin's power and how to use it, both are transported to another location. Sensing the disturbance, Rukia suspects it's the power of the Ōin, which the Arrancar girls confirm. Declaring Ichigo to be a risk, they summon a multitude of Hollows to deal with the Substitute Shinigami.
Back in Soul Society, the sky above the Sōkyoku Hill begins to crackle with golden lightning, drawing the attention of the Gotei 13. A message is sent out to everybody by Hell Butterfly, informing them that the reiatsu of both Tōshirō Hitsugaya and the likely thief of the Ōin has appeared on top of the Sōkyoku Hill. Calling back all of the search parties in the living world, the forces in Soul Society mobilize to confront this turn of events. Surprised to find himself and Kusaka on top of the hill, the latter explains that the Ōin holds the power to move time, space, and matter, depending on the will of its user. As Hitsugaya begins to understand what this means, Kusaka explains that after his death, he was transported to Hueco Mundo and reincarnated there, which led to his determination in finding the Ōin and using its power to have his revenge upon Soul Society.
Asking Hitsugaya to cut the Ōin with his Bankai, Kusaka laughs maniacally as his plan begins to come together. At this moment, Renji, Ikkaku Madarame, and Yumichika Ayasegawa arrive on the scene, with Ikkaku informing the fugitives of their orders to arrest both Hitsugaya and Kusaka. Complimenting Ikkaku's abilities, Kusaka states that the 3rd Seat is no match for him. Feeling goaded, Ikkaku jumps forward to attack before being stopped by Hitsugaya, who defends Kusaka. Seeing his wound, Ikkaku comments that he must be serious if he's still willing to fight.
In the living world, Ichigo and Rukia are struggling against the sheer number of Hollows. Just as he is about to be surrounded, Ichigo is saved by the timely arrival of Uryū, who subdues the Hollows from a distance. As Uryū states he can fire his arrows quicker than they can summon Hollows, Ichigo is left aggravated due to almost being hit. With the red-haired Arrancar creating an enormous ball of fire, both Ichigo and Uryū prepare to deal with it, only for Sado to step in and meet the attack head on with his El Directo, the impact of both blasts creating a sizable explosion. As Uryū and Sado state Urahara has prepared the gateway to Soul Society and they will deal with the twins, Ichigo and Rukia quickly leave to save Hitsugaya.
On the Sōkyoku Hill, the remaining Gotei 13 forces finally converge, surrounding the two fugitives, who are still combating Renji and the others. With the captains stepping forward, they are warned by Suì-Fēng to stand down and surrender. Calling them pathetic, Kusaka, activating the Ōin in preparation, calls on Hitsugaya to cut it with his Bankai, claiming to bring an end to their hate and suffering. Realizing things are escalating, Suì-Fēng orders the majority of their forces to attack, who charge forward. Before reaching the two fugitives, they are cut off by a Getsuga Tenshō fired from above, leaving the Shinigami in a daze, as Ichigo and Rukia land from above.
Asking if killing and fighting are the only things Shinigami can do, Ichigo is cut off by Suì-Fēng, who states the Gotei 13 have a duty, and that if Ichigo continues to interfere, she will have him killed too. Before the fighting can resume, Yamamoto appears from behind, telling all of them to halt. The majority of the Shinigami present kneel as the old man walks by, Matsumoto, Kyōraku, and Nanao following behind. Glad to see his friend up again, Ukitake expresses his relief, only for Kyōraku to reply he would have nightmares if an innocent man is condemned. Confronting Kusaka, Yamamoto comments on the arrogance of his plan to use the Ōin's power to become the King of Soul Society. Retorting that it is they who are arrogant, Kusaka begins to activate the Ōin once more, only for Hitsugaya to attack him before being pushed back, refusing Matsumoto's attempts to help. Kusaka is left confused as to why Hitsugaya is attacking him. Stating he is only trying to atone for his crimes, Hitsugaya resumes his attack on Kusaka, while Rukia explains the criminal's past.
Ichigo explains that Hitsugaya wants to stop Kusaka on his own, rather than as a captain of the Gotei 13, because he blames himself for what happened to his friend. Realizing Hitsugaya never intended to join him, Kusaka decides to cut the seal with his own power, rather than rely on his friend's Bankai. Cutting the Ōin in half, Kusaka is engulfed in a pillar of energy, calling out to his friend. Ichigo steps in before Hitsugaya, reminding him he doesn't have to do it alone. When Hitsugaya still believes he should be the one to do it, Ichigo resorts to punching him away, asking him if he even considered how the people around him felt seeing his suffering. Using his own experiences as an example, Ichigo manages to convince Hitsugaya to let his friends help him.
As they prepare to fight, the pillar of energy surrounding Kusaka disperses, revealing the transformation which had been taking place inside. Having transformed into a large, bipedal ice dragon, Kusaka declares this to be the power of the Ōin, with Ichigo and Hitsugaya left shocked by his grotesque form. Unable to hold back his own excitement, Kenpachi Zaraki rushes forward and shatters Kusaka's midsection with his initial attack. When asked if he is done already, Kusaka responds by grabbing Kenpachi's Zanpakutō and creating a mass of spiked ice around the two, which breaks apart almost immediately after. Both Kusaka and Kenpachi are launched off of the cliff, with the former mocking the latter's attempts to harm him. Kenpachi shocks Kusaka by becoming elated he hasn't died already, and assaults the transformed Shinigami as they both hurtle towards the ground.
Landing a blow on the 11th Captain, Kusaka sends him down towards the earth with a hail of ice. Thinking his opponent dead, Kusaka flies to a nearby tower which, upon landing, freezes over, and creates a pillar of ice. As he marvels at how spectacular the Ōin's power is, the Arrancar twins return to him, severely injured, apologizing for their defeat. Freezing them with his power, Kusaka glows as his energy starts to rise again, causing the tower of ice to immediately branch out and grow, its arms quickly reaching the Sōkyoku Hill and spreading all over Seireitei.
Final Clash with a GodПравить
Visibly shaken by Kusaka's display of power, Yamamoto rallies the Shinigami, telling them to not be afraid. Reminded of their duty, the Gotei 13 quickly jump into action, with the majority of the captains and lieutenants leading the charge. Attacking first, Byakuya and Renji's attacks are easily deflected, with the latter being thrown to the ground far below. Several others, including Suì-Fēng and Sajin Komamura, attempt to surround Kusaka, only to be blown away by a powerful shock wave, which destroys the ice branches leading to him, causing the remaining attackers (Ichigo, Rukia, Hitsugaya and Matsumoto) to fall to the ground as well.
A large black sphere of energy forms around Kusaka, expanding to cover a large area of the Seireitei. Shocked by this, Nemu asks Mayuri if it is the result of Kusaka unleashing all of the Ōin's power. He explains that rather than it being the Ōin's full power, the sphere is instead a result of the treasure going berserk, due to Kusaka breaking the seal without a Bankai. Reminding them of the Ōin's nature, he warns the other captains that unless the growing sphere of reiatsu is contained, it will expand to cover all of Seireitei, obliterating everything within its confines. Realizing what this means for them, Yamamoto steps forward to take action.
Inside the sphere of energy, the Shinigami who were knocked to the ground recover and regroup. Regaining consciousness, Hitsugaya sees Matsumoto standing over him while holding up a large rock, stopping it from crushing the small captain. Reminding her captain that it's the lieutenant's job to watch his back, they realize Ichigo and Rukia have landed nearby. Seeing they are all unharmed, Renji, appearing, points out the situation to them, showing Kusaka's ice tower has transformed into a colossal stone fortress. Unsure of what to do next, Yoruichi and Suì-Fēng appear nearby and update the others on the situation, explaining that outside the barrier, the remaining captains are holding the sphere back with the full power of their own Bankai. They, inside of the barrier, are to climb the tower and kill Kusaka before the Ōin's power can expand any further. Calling from a distance, Ikkaku and Yumichika, claiming to not want to miss out on the fun, join them.
From the fortress's base, a multitude of Hollows are summoned in order to defend Kusaka while he is unable to move. Not wasting any time, Yoruichi and Suì-Fēng, running ahead, fend off the Hollows using Shunkō, allowing the others to move ahead unhindered. Before leaving, Matsumoto returns Hitsugaya's haori to him, who accepts it, now that he is fighting alongside his comrades. Splitting into two groups, Ichigo takes one path with Renji and Rukia, while Hitsugaya heads the other way with Matsumoto, Ikkaku, and Yumichika as backup.
Following a pathway which leads up along the castle walls, Ichigo's group quickly encounters a large, armored Hollow with an open stomach, which holds a ball of fire. Realizing the Hollow is the red-haired Arrancar from before, Renji jumps forth to defend them from a fireball the Hollow launches at them, Cutting the flames in two. Rather than explode harmlessly, the two halves turn around and attack Renji from behind, hitting him directly and creating a large explosion. Renji activates his Bankai in time and, emerging unscathed, quickly sends the length of Zabimaru up the tower, giving Ichigo and Rukia a chance to quickly ascend.
On the other side of the fortress, Hitsugaya's group is seen climbing the fortress by jumping up the platforms that jut out from the wall. Coming under attack from the blue-haired Arrancar (who has undergone a similar transformation), they find her lightning bolts difficult to counter. Meanwhile, Yoruichi and Suì-Fēng encounter the transformed red-haired Arrancar. Acting as a decoy, Yoruichi distracts it long enough for Suì-Fēng to use Suzumebachi's special ability, Nigeki Kessatsu. Suì-Fēng turns her back and begins to leave, not realizing the Hollow has begun to regenerate. Charging up a Cero, the flame Hollow fires the powerful beam at the Second Division's captain, who is only saved by Yoruichi using her Shunkō to counter the blast.
Still struggling with the lightning-powered Hollow, Hitsugaya's group finds itself pressed against a wall. Preparing themselves for another barrage, the group is thrown off-balance when an enormous amount of reiatsu surges from underneath the fortress's leg. Matsumoto asks if the fortress is moving, only for Ikkaku to correct her, recognizing the reiatsu's signature. Far below, the leg of the fortress is being pushed up by the unrestrained force of Kenpachi's reiatsu, who has regained consciousness without his eye-patch attached. Laughing maniacally, commenting on how awesome the situation is from his perspective, he slashes vertically alongside the castle, severing one of the legs and distracting the flame-powered Hollow long enough for Yoruichi and Suì-Fēng to begin their counter-attack.
Without anything to stop them now, both Hitsugaya and Ichigo's groups meet up at the pinnacle of the fortress, only to be met by a large force of Menos Grande of both Gillian and Adjuchas levels. Activating their respective Shikai and Bankai, both groups begin to defend themselves from the Hollow while slowly making their way forward. Their progress is almost completely halted when the Hollow quickly reveal themselves to be near immortal, due to the Ōin's influence, regenerating from almost nothing, despite the power of the groups' attacks. Realizing the only way to get through is to blast a hole in the Hollow's defenses that will last long enough for Ichigo to make it through with his Bankai's speed, Rukia shares her plan with the others.
Understanding her intent, Matsumoto begins to explain that if she, Ikkaku, and Yumichika combine their attacks, they should be able to do it, only to be cut off by Ikkaku, who claims to be able to do it himself. Realizing the severity of the situation, he asks them to keep what he is about to do a secret, before shocking them with the reveal of his own Bankai. Before they are given a chance to attack, they realize all of the Menos present have begun charging a barrage of Cero. Unprepared for the barrage, they are surprised when an immense wall of blades appears, protecting them from the attack. Finding themselves within Senbonzakura Kageyoshi, Senkei, Byakuya reminds them of their purpose, and that the captains restraining the Ōin's power cannot hold out forever.
Refocused, the group prepares to attack as Byakuya disengages his Senkei technique, transforming the protective wall of blades into a whirlwind, which consumes the nearby Menos. Having powered up his own Bankai, Ikkaku attacks alongside Renji, creating a powerful blast which blows aside the remaining Hollow, allowing Hitsugaya and Ichigo (now with his Hollow mask) to speed towards the ice tower which holds up Kusaka. The latter sends out several ice dragons to defend himself, which Ichigo easily dodges with his enhanced speed, leaving Hitsugaya to counter them with his own attack. Reaching Kusaka first, Ichigo is forced to counter a powerful blast from him, which gives Hitsugaya enough time to attack from below with Daiguren Hyōrinmaru, creating another ice dragon, which constricts Kusaka's body and bites into his neck.
A circle of runes materializes above the two ice dragons just as Ichigo appears above them, stabbing his Zanpakutō into Kusaka's forehead and firing a point-blank Getsuga Tenshō, which destroys the ice dragon's head and wings. Time seems to freeze for the Hollows down below, while the Shinigami look at where the battle has just concluded. Removing his Hollow mask, Ichigo lowers himself to the ground, just as the rest of the ice dragon's body shatters and a beam of light shoots into the sky, erasing the sphere of reiatsu which had been growing. The Hollows begin to die and disintegrate as the Ōin's power disappears.
Landing next to Ichigo, Hitsugaya, deactivating his own Bankai, watches as the beam of energy dissipates, revealing Kusaka, who is still alive, though barely. Encouraging Hitsugaya to go to him, Ichigo watches as the two resolve to finish the fight themselves. Baring their identical Zanpakutō, the two clash, as Kusaka remembers the original fight, where Hitsugaya had defended him, only for Kusaka to attack him out of desperation and selfishness. Returning to the present, Kusaka's Zanpakutō falls to the ground broken, and Hitsugaya is the victor. Fading away, Kusaka remains adamant about his death, claiming his existence will continue on. Comforting him, Hitsugaya reminds him they will always be friends, before Kusaka fades away for good.
Realizing it is finally over, the Shinigami below begin to relax and celebrate, with Yumichika asking Ikkaku who he thought won. Berating them for even asking, Matsumoto claims the answer is obvious. As she looks towards the ice tower, a stream of blue light soars into the sky, followed by several golden tendrils of energy. The Ōin, beginning to reconstruct itself, falls from the sky, landing before Ichigo, who picks it up, asking how something so small could cause so much trouble. Approaching Hitsugaya, Ichigo is surprised when the former thanks him. Assuring Hitsugaya Kusaka most likely regretted his actions, Ichigo throws him the Ōin, commenting that Kusaka was probably happy to have been able to finish their fight.
Later, Hitsugaya is seen visiting a grave, placing Kusaka's bloodied cloak and broken Zanpakutō before it. Saying goodbye, he turns away and leaves with Matsumoto, apologizing for putting her through so much for his own selfish pursuits, and thanking her for standing by him in the end. Surprised, Matsumoto asks if he said anything, which he immediately denies, causing the former to complain about going back to work. As she urges him to leave early, suggesting a nearby hot spring, Hitsugaya merely responds by telling her to go by herself, causing her to further nag him about going.
