Mystery and the Truth 2:
The truth behind the death of Masaki 20 years ago.
20 years ago the shinigami conducted an experiment in the real world. Isshin battled this hollow, White, and was rescued by Masaki the Quincy. That event was the beginning of destiny.
Masaki uses her body to stop the hollow. But what are the consequences of that action?
The injury caused by White has started the process of hollowification and a hole appears in Masaki's chest. Urahara lends his help. The Fullbringers have the strength of the hollows because their mothers were attacked by hollows. Could Ichigo's fullbring abilities have arisen from this event?
To stop the Hollow from devouring Masaki's soul, Isshin lost his powers. The Hollow in Ichigo's Inner world is released and assumes the appearance from before.
Masaki could have probably defeated Grand Fisher without even a single injury to herself. The Quincy who were decided as “unclean” and possessing impure blood were robbed of their powers.
Because Masaki was a Pure Quincy (Echt Quincy), her Blut Vene ability allowed her to defeat White. She received an injury from the hollow, her soul got mingled with the hollow's and during Bach's “Holy Selection”, he passed judgement that Masaki was “unclean” and her Quincy powers were lost.
After many times experimenting, White has been made. White has been made with the soul of a Shinigami. Who is this shinigami?
White the Hollow is all black. He has a hole in his chest that is blocked with “something”. He has very sharp blades for arms.
Aizen said he wanted to see an outcome (ref to. Chapter 533, pg 10). Was he referring to the Hollow that lives in the Inner world of Ichigo?!
Aizen has repeated the hollowification experiments he did a hundred years ago; where he manipulated souls of ordinary folk, Gotei members and the souls of Hirako and Co.
And White, the hollow Aizen created, resembles closely in appearance to the complete (or perfect?) Hollow that lives in Ichigo. The created hollow, based on the template of a Shinigami, chose a Quincy: a being the least like itself. Aizen and Co.'s expectations were betrayed when White committed suicide (or you may prefer self-destructed?). Doesn't he bear a resemblance to the complete Hollow Form that Ichigo took on?
In the passing of twenty years the Shiba Family has fallen. Is the cause of the downfall because Isshin saved Masaki's life by losing his Shinigami powers? Or is there some other reason in addition?
Kuukaku, who helps the Zero Squad return to the Spirit Realm mentions “Uncle” (Oji). Who could this person be? Ukitake nursed high expectations for Kaien to become a Vice-captain. 20 years ago, Isshin took the position of Captain of the 10th squad. It's not known if Kaien was from the head of the family or part of a branch (these two sentences not clear to me, so don't quote me on it).
These are supposedly just sentences sprawled across the page with relevant images in the background. There's no more elaboration to these "headlines".
Ishida Uryuu: Fallen into the camp gates!
The disappearing Seireitei!
The Vandenreich enter once more!
These are supposedly just sentences sprawled across the page with relevant images in the background. There's no more elaboration to these "headlines".
After Soul Society is one-sidedly overrun, the final battle between Shinigami and Quincy in the Thousand-year Blood War arc is drawn. What is drawn in this last battle is confirmed, and mysteries are raised and born anew.
New mysteries and those which have been told so far are disclosed.
The form of the Spirit King and King's Key are shown
The welcoming prescence of the Spirit King is a symbol of Soul Society. The identity of it which was not drawn until now has become clear. However, its true state remains a mystery. Although the mystery of the King's Key which links Seireitei and the Royal Palace was confirmed, there is also a new mystery...
I can see why the Spirit King has become infatuated with you...
The only method of returning to the Royal Palace is by Kuukaku's cannon. Does Kuukaku living in the Rukongai play a big part in this? Also, Kuukaku's right arm is missing, is this related to the King's Key?
霊王宮に入る＊ (cannot read that kanji at all)・王鍵は、零番隊に選別された際に霊王の力によって変質した零番隊の“骨”がそれにあたる。零番隊 全員、兵主部と同じ場所なのか？
The King's Key used to enter the Royal Palace is the "bones" of the Zero Division which are altered by the Spirit King upon selection into Zero Division. Is it in the same location as Hyousube for all of the members of the Zero Division?
Main paragraph of page 2:
The true identity of the yearning war demon "Yachiru"
The unforgettable Kenpachi, "Yachiru" is the name of the person who yearns. Who has a great influence on Kenpachi, whose truth behind their name was not known, is the first Kenpachi and current captain of the Fourth Division, Unohana. Also, her arrival and departure is attached to a sorrowful fate.
Kenpachi who won his battle with Unohana, finally hears the voice of his Zanpakuto and then he responded to that voice.
Keyword 1: Special War Potential
Bach's Vandenreich have come to SS to meet the 5 War Potentials. Ichigo, Aizen and Kenpachi aside, who on earth are the remaining two war potentials? Will the remaining two potentials hold the key to the Separation Arc? The basis on which the judgement of who is a War Potential is unknown. Are there elements that are factored in besides the "strength of the War Potential"?
Kenpachi Panel: "The strong Zaraki Kenpachi was specified to be a Special War Potential, the end result was that he was defeated by Bach"
The panel with Aizen says "Aizen Sosuke, the one who caused untold chaos upon Soul Society is the only one to be imprisoned to the depths of Muken"
Panel with Ichigo and Opie: "Kurosaki Ichigo: Ichigo, who possesses the blood of a Quincy, is a special War potential. Among the Special War Potentials, a person other than a Shinigami was selected." (It says Shinigami igai ni, which I interpret to be other than a shinigami. (Correct me if I'm wrong).
Keyword 2: "The Sky Strain"
There is a small strain in the sky of Karakura Town. Hiyori receives a directive from Hirako (who has returned to the Gotei 13) jointly issued with Mayuri, to fix the strain. Is the directive talking about this little strain in the sky? Is that all that the directive has to say? (unclear about this sentence)
Hiyori has received orders from Shinji, who has been reinstated into the Gotei Thirteen, to repair the tear upon joint orders from Mayuri who sent her a package.
Is Hiyori fixing these "tears"? Are her orders only restoration work?
Just before Hiyori began locating these tears, she sensed the "smell of a Shinigami"
A tear also appeared in the empty space of the sky (TN: Above Karakura town near the location of Tatsuki, Mizuiri, Keigo and Shunsui). Just before this, Kyoraku appears before Tatsuki and friends and tells them of Ichigo's current situation and future. Is this a connection to the appearance of the Shinigami...?
Keyword 3 Panel: :"Genryusai"
The name " Genryusai" that was uttered but once! Bach always refers to Yamamoto Genryusai as "Shigekuni". But, when striking the final blow, he said not "Shigekuni", but "Genryusai". Is there a meaning behind the fact that Bach called him "Genryusai" that one time only?
Soon after Genryusai was angered, was Yhwach going to try and use Genryusai's Bankai to resurrect his subordinates?
The truth of the Millennium Bloodwar has been clearly explained and the mysteries are drawing closer.
A hundred years ago, the fate of the Shinigami was derailed, and the Visoreds were driven out of Soul Society. After the mayhem caused by Aizen, some of them returned to the Gotei 13 in Soul Society, and others remained to live peacefully in the Human Realm. However, instructions from Soul Society were sent down after the Quincy invasion. Now even the Human Realm must stand and face the next blood bath.
Hollow powers in hand, they are able to freely "power up" to achieve Hollowfication. No Shinigami can have this ability, but all of the Visoreds possess it.
Shinigami with Zanpakuto and Hollow Masks---
Gotei 13: The Returning Group
Third Division Captain
(stuff about Kira)
Fifth Division Captain
Return to the Fifth Division which hasn't changed from 100 years ago. During the recent attack, he is one of the few who did not have his Bankai taken.
(Rough translation, this paragraph is really strange to translate)
Ninth Division Captain
Just like 100 years ago, he has returned to the Ninth Division along with Mashiro. The lieutenant hasn't changed, as Hisagi Shuuhei admires Kensei.
Ninth Division Super Lieutenant
Just like Kensei, Mashiro has also returned to the Ninth Division. Mashiro has only attained the position of "special seated officer" now!?
Human Realm: Remaining Group
Former lieutenant of the Twelfth Division who hates Shinigami. Zero Division Hikifune is Hiyori's former senior officer.
Hacchi boasts a giant body. He is the only one not formerly a member of the Gotei 13, instead being from the Kidou Corps.
With his trademark afro and sunglasses, he is the former captain of the Seventh Division.
Former lieutenant of the Eighth Division. The relationship she had with her senior officer Kyoraku is now shared with Nanao.
Sado and Orihime have been cooperating in the Hollow extermination for Karakura-cho along with both Ichigo and Ishida. Although never to be completed due to the attack of Soul Society by the Quincy, in anticipation of the next battle they are training daily with Urahara and others. Then that is --!?
While left in Hueco Mundo, Urahara, Orihime, and Sado communicate with Ichigo, when a mysterious man who seems to be an Arrancar appeared. That tone of voice ... no way? In the human world, Tatsuki, Keigo, and Mizuiro are told to bid farewell to Ichigo, those three people!?
When Ichigo and Squad Zero went to the Reiokyu, they used Kukaku's Launch Pad. There, the image appears to depict Ganju with the three Fullbringers, who draw out and utilize the "soul" that dwells within "matter". Are they also participating in the next battle?
Ginjo's Fullbring is a cross-shaped necklace that becomes a long sword. Before Ichigo, he served as a substitute Shinigami.
The book mark placed in his book, is the power that becomes Tsukishima's Fullbring. He possesses the ability to cut any object and manipulate its past.
For generations, a pocket watch has been handed down that utilizes the ability to set a condition-based timer.
They are the people who are fighting in the Final Blood War.
The true form of Zangetsu, a Bankai that has been destroyed.
Ichigo underwent a visit to the Zero Division to get the "Sword God", Nimaiya Ouetsu, to fix his sword which was broken by the Quincies. There, Ichigo is then to understand the true identity of Zangetsu, their birth!?
Ichigo attempts to have the damaged Zanpakuto repaired, Mayuri told him the real situation concerning his Bankai.
Nimaiya Ouetsu, the only Shinigami capable of forging Zanpakuto, ruthlessly sent Ichigo down (to the Human Realm) with uncertainty.
By knowing the truth of his birth, Ichigo succeeds in choosing an Asauchi.
Nimaiya then recreates Ichigo's connection with his Asauchi. However, Nimaiya speaks the shocking truth.
The Vizards in the Human Realm, Orihime and the others who are training with Urahara and those who appear to be the Fullbringers. Surely enough, they, together with Ichigo who wields a new Zanpakuto, will fight in the Final Blood War.
In the next issue, the many truths and mysteries of Millennium Blood War Arc have been revealed, largely explaining them!
More than 2,000 soldiers, more than 50 seated officers, and the veteran officer Genryuusai fell during the Quincy invasion of Soul Society. Soul Society suffered such an enormous loss, began preparations for the next bloody battle, and welcomed the next Captain Commander.
Genryuusai was annihilated by Yhwach.
The shattered Ryuujinjakka was returned to the Division Barracks.
After the death of Genryuusai, his favourite student, Kyouraku Shunsui, was appointed Captain Commander.
The Zero Division that protects the Soul King exists as an absolute symbol in Soul Society. Recognized by the Soul King as being "the history of Soul Society itself", it is composed of five extremely powerful Shinigami.
The combined power of these five people surpasses that of the entire Thirteen Divisions.
Bottom right with Ichibe:
The commanding Shinigami of the Zero Division
Referred to as "Oshou" by Kyouraku, who has a deep connection with the senior captains. All of his abilities and past are a mystery.
Hyousube appears to be the large-hearted man who brings together the Zero Division. His face is also extremely excited.
Bottom middle with Senjumaru:
The female Shinigami who shares a deep relationship with Mayuri (word used is 因縁 which means fate or destiny, which is interesting)
Easily breaking into the laboratory managed by Mayuri, she is a Shinigami of many mysteries. Her abilities, not just related to the Shihakusho!?
A warning sound reverberates as the Shutara Scale is reported. Senjumaru is related...?
The revival of the Shinigami humiliated by the Quincy! Each of them training daily. The Gotei 13 plot to make a comeback.
Kenpachi Panel: In Muken, Kenpachi risks his life for the thrill of battle. At last (not in conclusion as Herakles says), he hears for the first time, the voice of his Zampaktou and also knows its name.
Kensei Panel: Kensei, who hadn't lost his Bankai, along with Mashiro seek Kensei's co-operation in Bankai training so that they may expand in number of war potentials*.
Akon Panel- After terminating all contact with his subordinates, Mayuri remains in the confines of his room. What is it the thing in Captain Mayuri's room that Akon's secret camera has captured?
Nimaiya Panel: The only Shinigami to craft a blade. All the swords possessed by the Gotei 13 squads are crafted by Nimaiya Ouetsu from nameless blades called the Asauchi. He lives in a royal palace with other Zampaktou (?) and he is capable of making preliminary arrangements for repairing broken Zampaktou.
Kirinji Panel : The rotten blood and reiatsu are squeezed out, and replaced in a special hot water spring that is housed in the Kirinden Palace. However it is also possible for the body to be ruptured by the waters after the recovery. (I think this is a reference to the aides who had to wear special suits to get into the water).
Revival of the Shinigami who succumbed to the Quincy.
Kenpachi who is risked his life in the Muken to enjoy battle. In conclusion, he listened to the voice of his Zanpakuto for the very first time, he knows its name.
Hitsugaya decided that after losing Bankai, he will train from the basics and he is determined.
She who had her Bankai stolen.
Soi Feng who also lost her Bankai, is training her body and mind from scratch alone.
The Gotei Thirteen who were horribly beaten by then Quincy. Those people who had their Bankai stolen, are now faced with a life threatening crisis. Nevertheless, all of their energy is pointed towards the next battle and their objective is to train and improve their techniques.
The Shinigami are devoting themselves to preparing for the moment to strike back.
Towards a bloody battle with the Quincy, the Shinigami of the Gotei 13 each continuously train in their methods. Once they have reached the climax of their training, the Shinigami's "true" counterattack begins.
Next issue: full feature on Ichigo's Human Realm group, the Vizards, and the third force!
I have no idea what the third force (第三勢力) is meant to be, clarification is appreciated.
