Bleach 356: Tyrant of Skulls [Spoiler]
Continues from the last chapter after Halibel cut Hitsugaya she turns to Yamamoto but before she could move something passes her head. Halibel dodges and is surprised to see Hitsugaya as the one who attacked her. Hitsugaya comments how he didn’t expect her power to increase that much after the resurreccion. Then he says, “Good thing I’ve prepared for this.”
Halibel turns around to a spot she cuts Hitsugaya and sees a cut-figure of him; onlt difference is the entire sky is cracked like a smashed mirror. She looks again then realizes what she cut was a reflection from the ice-mirror Hitsugaya has created.
“This trick only works once and I was hoping to use when it was more urgent.” Says Hitsugaya and then adds, “Do not underestimate shinigami’s powers…..”
A scene cuts to Soi Fong and Oomaeda. Soi Fong tries to attack Barragan by sneaking in from the back but the moment she’s about to hit him; she’s slowed down (like a film was played in slow motion mode). No matter what she does, this incident happens within a second before she could attack him. In the end, Barragan grabs her ankle and throws her to one of the houses. Soi Fong tries to figures out what is Barragan’s ability when Barragan laughs at her for unable to figure it out. When she stays silent, Barragan starts to comment on the espadas.
“Each espada is in control of a certain theme of death. These ten themes are the major reasons why humans face death. Each espada has ability, ideas (way of thinking) and reasons to exist relates to the theme.”
“Loneliness (Stark), Sacrifice (Halibel), emptiness (Ulquiorra), madness (Szayel), despair (Nnoitora), destruction (Grimmjor), obsession (Zomari), greed (Aaronero), wrath (Yammy) and the theme I’m in control of is ‘aging’. Aging is the same as time. It is the thing above those with existence no matter how powerful or mighty you are.”
Right after that he moves to where Soi Fong is and places a hand on her left shoulder. Soi Fong quickly escapes him when Barragan says,
“Just by a thought and a touch I can make your bones ‘age’.”
Before Soi Fong could understand what he meant she sees her left arm is already broken.
“You wouldn’t understand. Death is like this. From this second onward until the end of a fight, your brain will not understand anything.”
Then he says his release,
