Bleach: Chapter 378: Eyes Of The Victor
The comrades can do nothing before such overwhelming power...
Who arrives at the location...?
Ichigo vs Yammi
[Huff huff huff]
Rukia is in anguish being caught in the grip of Yammi's right hand.
Around them are Chad and Renji, both defeated.
They have collapsed, motionless.
Yammi clutches Rukia and smiles at her cruelly.
Yammi: "Finally, it's over for you.
You were trouble...
The sword releases were fine, but it was tough
seeking out and crushing something so tiny...
Even holding you so that you won't be crushed
is delicate work...
Now...how will I kill you?"
As Yammi speaks, Rukia aims at his face
and with the last bit of strength she can muster,
Rukia: "Pale Fire Crash!"
That hurt...that really hurt
That was effective...
too effective...my hand..."
He scowls at Rukia.
Yammi: "almost slipped!!!"
He throws Rukia to the ground with all his strength
As she's thrown, Rukia is resigned to her death against Yammi,
But, just before she hits the ground Rukia is saved.
In front of her is...
Ichigo standing, with his sword in his right hand.
Yammi: "....And who the hell are you...!"
Ichigo: "Whoa, in just the short time I haven't seen you you've grown so big I didn't recognize you!"
Yammi:" Kurosaki Ichigooooo!!!"
Suddenly Rukia calls out in a surprised voice.
Rukia: "...I...Ichigo...Why are you alone?...Didn't you go to rescue Inoue?"
He glances at her and then turns his back.
Ichigo: "...She's rescued. Right now she's up there healing Ishida's hand.
She should be safe."
Yammi interrups and attacks them with his fist.
They barely escape, and Yammi yells with irritation.
Yammi: "You shouldn't go skittering about!!"
He once again turns to face them.
Ichigo: "You wait here, Rukia
I'll soon finish this and head to the real world. This insignificant
battle will be over quickly."
Ichigo turns back towards Rukia and says that without their eyes meeting.
Then he charges foward towards Yammi.
Rukia stares at his back and thinks uneasily.
Rukia: "What on earth happened up on the dome?
Those eyes are not those of someone who has won a battle.
And they're not those of someone who is going to kill his enemy.
What happened, Ichigo...!"
Yammi: "Don't skitter about...didn't I tell you?"
Ichigo thrusts his sword toward Yammi, but
he's quickly smashed into the ground.
Ichigo remains in that state and mutters,
Ichigo: "Shut your face...
I'm not racing around trying to escape you..."
He looks in the distance at Chad and Renji and says,
Ichigo:"I'm drawing you away from that location."
Ichigo slowly pulls himself up
His face is covered with his mask.
And his eyes are filled with madness.
Ichigo: "If it's just me and you...
I can crush you with my strength..."
A thunderous roar!!
