Bleach: Chapter 369
Bleach 369 "Spit On Your Own God"
Barragan vs Hacchi & Soifon>>>
Barragan: You thought that kidou can't 'age'?
The barrier Hacchi put up becomes fragile and crumbles away, and Barragan says
Barragan: What a joke
Barragan: People die, birds and animals die, even shinigami die. But before the death comes everything ages. If there's death for things made by humans, then the same goes for kidou made by shinigami. Maybe there are kidou that can exist for a thousand years, but there can't be kidou that will last forever. Of course, the very notion of 'eternity' is just a delusion created because people are afraid of getting old so much. Now, perish!
Hacchi, who was silently listening to Barragan until now, suddenly starts clapping his hands
Every time Hacchi claps his hands there's a plank-like thing appearing, then Hacchi makes a move with his hands and these planks start line up neatly and form a giant wall-barrier isolating Barragan from Hacchi&Co.
In an instance, Barragan is traped with this barrier. Hacchi claps his hands together and starts chanting.
Hacchi: Brethren-in-arms withdrawing for the distance of 8 sun and standing still; blue bolt (like a bolt on door), white bolt, black bolt, red bolt; sinking into the ocean together seeking redemption
Barragan: Incantation? The spell that is cast skipping incantation is strengthened if the incantation is added. A smart thing to do... But you won't make it in time!
Hacchi stops his chanting and at the same time he opens his hands that were previously joint. And
Hacchi: The Gate of Dragon Tail
Hacchi makes a move with his hands again, and the shape of the huge wall-barrier changes to something resembling a home plate [TN: from baseball]. He excitedly calls out to Soifon
Hacchi: Soifon-san! Help me please! We need the power of your bankai!
Soifon: You know even about my bankai... everything was passed to you, bastards?... Urahara Kisuke... he's utterly unpleasant man...
Hacchi: I understand that you don't want to cooperate with us as there's a connection between us and Urahara-san. But right now is not the time to say such things!!
Hearing Hacchi's words Soifon understands that 'now is not the time', but still doesn't listen. Hacchi seeing her reluctance, says
Hacchi: I get it... Let's make a deal then.
At this time, not seeing any response since Hacchi formed the wall-barrier with his 'The Gate of Dragon Tail', Barragan says ready to commence his next attack
Barragan: Even though you produced such a grand barrier, without agreement between you all it's gonna be good for is buying you some time. "Rot away"!
Together with Barragan's words Hacchi opens his mouth to say
Hacchi: The Gate of Tiger Fangs
And to Barragan's left there's a watermill fang-like thing appearing. And
Hacchi: The Gate of Turtle Shell
Now to Barragan's right there's a tortoise shell-like thing emerging
Hacchi: The Gate of Phoenix Wings!
Above Barragan there's a huge conical lampshade-like thing which being supported on a pillar. And
Hacchi: The Final Gate of 4 Beasts!!!
Now there's a huge wall before Barragan, on his left and right there're Tiger Fang and Turtle Shell Gates and Phoenix Wing Gate from above, and now he's completely surrounded as Hacchi closes his barrier.
Barragan: Bwahahaha! How funny, how funny! You're planning to seal me with just that?
Hacchi: This is not a barrier to seal you.
Hacchi: You used your 'aging' power on Soifon-taichou's bankai a little while ago. It exploded far away from you as you flew over to another place to avoid the blast wave... So if you're in a place where you absolutely can't escape from the blast wave, your 'aging' power simply won't make it in time because the explosion will be too close... What's going to happen if you're being bathed in it?...
Barragan: You... bastards...
Soifon moves to the back of the windmill-fang-like shaped Gate of Tiger Fangs, sticks the pointed end of her 'Hornet Thunder Whip' in the middle, and faces towards Hacchi
Soifon: 'Swear once again that you will imprison Urahara Kisuke in your barrier for a month starting tomorrow'
Hacchi: I swear
Soifon: 'Hornet Thunder Whip' here we go!
Did she really finish Barragan with 'Hornet Thunder Whip'?
a moment makes an opening in the barrier, Soifon fires her bankai. The end.
No Bleach next week and maybe the week after.

This early spoiler is just like the chapters, insipid.
Well she has two huge ass people there that could just hold her lol.
HAHAHAH. U know what..... as comical as you made it sound i bet thats that happened.
Soi Fong: "Omeada I messed up my sash... i need your help"
Omeada: *Fuckin stupid look on his face* "DUUHH AYO TAICHO!!"
Soi Fong : "You too big guy"
Hachi: *WTF look on his face*
I'd be surprised if this chapter focused on them only. I hope it does it from this like now on. Goes from fight to fight instead of switching all at once.
I doubt that the chapter is gonna focus only on them because that would be one really bad chapter. I have no problem with it switching from fight to fight aslong as its done well which it never is in Bleach.
I would enjoy seeing one fight a chapter instead of going back and forth in the middle of each fight.
I wouldn't mind chapters covering single fights in Bleach either, Id sacrifice knowing whats going on with everybody else so that i can get a decent solo battle anyday, but as we all know and as Flash said Kube doesnt do chapters like those well (resently at least). The last solo chapter fight i remember was Ichigo vs Ulq and i was sooo pissed for most of it cause each chapter approx 85% of it was shitty filler material. Whole pages dedicated to full black (cause Ulqui release) blast, rubble etc. Not to mention all the negative space on his pages.
Thats why I don't like it in bleach. Kubo always does this thing in long fights where he shows the same thing in a chapter that we saw in the last one and then adds about 3-5 pages off new stuff, and then he will do the samething next chapter, show those 3-5 pages that we just saw in the last chapter. It's almost like an anime when they go last time on whatever or previously on whatever and show flashbacks.
