Bleach: Chapter 325
Death Wind (Kazeshini) doesn't seem to have any particularly special abilities.
He holds one sickle to attack with and throws the other.
Hisagi doesn't seem to like that his weapon is shaped like a life reaper.
He asks the crab who seems overwhelmed if he is scared by it, he yells "who me!?" Hisagi says that he himself is scared of it.
自分の力が巨大すぎるのが恐いならそれは陶酔だという蟹に、自分の握る剣に怯えぬ者に剣を握る 資格はないと エビチリに教わったというひさぎ。
The crab says "if you are scared of your own huge power you will become intoxicated by it." Hisagi then tells ebichili (Chile Prawns) that he has learnt "a sword in the hand can not be weilded by one who does not fear it."
戦いながら九割仮面を割って隊長と同等となったという蟹の右腕を切り落とし、恐怖し逃げる蟹に 鎌を投げて勝 利。
During the fight Findor's mask is 90% removed bringing him to the level of a captain. Hisagi however cuts off his right arm and wins the fight as Findor attempts to escape by throwing a sickle into him.
We then see a destroyed pillar and Ikkaku has collapsed! That's all til next week.
Bleach 325: Fear for the fight
Continues from the last chapter, Findor was looking at Hisagi’s zanpakutou. Hisagi told him he doesn’t like it that much. When Findor asked why, Hisagi said he hates its shape, “Can’t you see its shape is for taking lives?” However, his face showed no mercy which even scared Findor.
They fought. Shuuhei used threw the right sword and managed to cut Findor’s right cheek. He continued by throwing the left one but Findor managed to catch it so Shuuehi jumped toward him and aimed another one at him. Findor used his claw to catch it and attack Shuuhei but he dodged. Shuuhei fell from the building but Findor followed him. However, Shuuhei pull the zampakouto’s chain back and the sword was pulled toward Findor and he injured his left arm.
“You can’t read it, can you? Its movement.” Said Shuuhei while playing with his sword. Findor only forced out a smile. After a while without any movement Shuuhei asked if Findor is scared. He yelled back then threw the right claw out but Shuuhei escaped. “Oh really? But I am scared.”
“What are you scared of? You think you are too powerful and it scares you!!? How naïve! I will show you!” Then Findor destroyed the rest of his mask, only a few pieces left below his right eye.
“It’s over! Now my power is equal to the captain level! Lieutenant Level like you cannot win against me!”
Shuuhei remained calm and only moved his left hand to control the sword when Findor’s right claw was cut into two pieces.
“You probably never fear of your power…probably never of your opponents either.” Said Shuuhei then continuing, “Those who have no fear when wielding sword doesn’t deserve to wield one.” An image of Tousen passed his mind, “I was taught this way.”
Findor cursed then turned his back trying to run away. Shuuhei still calmly talk how Findor finally realizes what fear really is so both of them are equal. Shuuhei threw the sword following Findor then he screamed. Shuuhei looked at his victory when he heard the explosion. He turned around and was shock to see that one of the pillars has been destroyed.
Shuuhei wasn’t the only one who was in shock. Both Yumichika and Kira were staring at the scene in shock when they yelled, “Ikkaku..!!!”
Oh my gawd - I didn´t expect Ikakku losing (as a matter of fact,it was something that was so unlikely that it was likely to happen...).I wonder if he used his bankai xD The 11. division and their pride....
Well,Karakura town comes back now,doesn´t it?They only needed to destroy one pillar,am I right?Or do they have to destroy all 4?
and what´s the crab mentioned in the spoiler? lol
Holy...this seems interesting. The Ikkaku part that is.
I suppose it's about time one of the shinigami lost a battle. I just didn't think it would be Ikkaku. I guess we never really have any idea what the power levels of these people are. Then again, like Blue said, it could just be that his ego got in the way.
Or that fraccion was one hell of a arrancar.But like "pretty man guy" (srry I can´t remember his name atm) he probably didn´t want the others to know he has a bankai - even if a town was on the stake....
Yumichika (pretty man guy) doesn't have bankai, that was his shikai's ability.
I'm going to be PISSED if Kubo Tite makes Ikkaku have to use Bankai to beat his fraccion opponent. For one, it'd just be utter bullshit. Why of all people does Ikkaku have to be the one losing? Oh gee, I guess because he's the strongest out of them. So because he has bankai, we're going to make him start losing so that he'll have to use bankai. Brilliant Kubo Tite, just fucking brilliant.
^ To be fair, he didn't want anyone knowing about his bankai. With numerous captains,and none less than the captain-general in presence, it's quite probable that ikkaku refused to release his sword for fear of being hounded into the captain position.
That, or he's just gonna release it next chapter and wipe the floor with the guy. Either way it's nothing spectacular unless Kubo plays a wildcard.
Seems to be another chapter to pass the time, all in all. I guess we'll find out soon enough though.
Well of course Ikkaku doesn't want anyone knowing about his bankai. I'm not quite sure what you're trying to debate with me here. I'm saying out of those 4 people guarding the pillar, Ikkaku, who is supposed to be the strongest, just had to be the one losing. And it appears that way just so Kubo Tite could find an excuse for Ikkaku to use his bankai, eeeeeven though he doesn't want to.

So in other words when his arrancar's beating the crap outta hm whats he supposed to do? Keep fighting hand to hand cause thats all he can do.
Ikkaku's plenty strong with just his shikai release and he's smart enough to mess with people by splitting his weapon to reveal its a three-sectioned staff. What I'm saying is, the way Kubo Tite is writing it, it seems like he's going to have Ikkaku losing just for the sake of having him use his bankai. It would've been fine for Ikkaku to fight it out, use his shikai, then his shikai ability, and beat the arrancar without going all out and using sheer power.
Now we haven't seen what REALLY happens of course, I'm just assuming because that's what it seems like Kubo Tite is doing.
