Ichigo vs Yammi
Yammi is on the ground in front of Ichigo's sword.
Ichigo makes sure he's out, then puts his left hand on his mask.
He waves his hand over it
As his mask disappears and his normal face returns, Rukia feels an indescribable uneasiness.
Rukia's thoughts: "What...? Just now...
Weren't the patterns on Ichigo's mask different...?
Certainly even until now the patterns had been changing little by little,
but now, the pattern is completely different than it has been...!!
What in the world is it becoming....Ichigo....!!"
At the same time Ichigo also feels an uneasiness.
Ichigo's thoughts: "What the...That uncomfortable feeling just now...!?
That hollowfication...something was strange...Like...the mask has become heavy...
Is it because of *that*....!?"
His fight with Ulquiorra on top of the dome comes to mind.
At that moment Yammi, whom Ichigo thought to be defeated, attacks again.
Ichigo barely avoids it.
As Ichigo dodges the attack, his face smashes into a building.
Yammi: "...Damn...I was a little bit cut...Damnit...!!"
Ichigo's expression changes at Yammi's words.
Ichigo: "A little bit cut...!?
He took a masked Getsuga Tenshou on the head and he's just a bit cut...!?
Yammi: "Are you surprised!!? Look closely at my number '0'.
I'm the number 0 Espada, Yammi Rialgo. Not one of the Espada
you fought until now has been stronger than me. Not GJ,
not Nnoitra, and Not Ulquiorra!! To me they're all like trash!!"
Yammi then let's out a cry and swings his fist at Ichigo.
Ichigo has no counter and is blown away.
Yammi: "How's that, huh!? It's not a cero, it's bala!!
And also this power!! I don't even need a plan against
a trash insect like you!"
Ichigo: "A plan?...Until now it's not like I had a plan...
it's just that I won because I had to win...as simple as that.
I don't care if you're more special than the other espada...
I'll defeat you because I have to. That's all."
Yammi: "You're way too cocky, kid!!
I'll show you the difference in our powers and bury you with
Yammi fires more balas at Ichigo.
As he's blown away he ruminates over Yammi's words.
"To me they're all like trash!
"GJ and Noitra and Ulquiorra"
Ichigo thinking: "...It's a strange feeling. even though it's
their comrades who died, Inoue still had a pained expression..."
Ichigo raises his sword again and says to Yammi
with challenging eyes:
Ichigo: "...It's a strange feeling. I don't hope to feel true
kinship towards you guys...and I don't regret cutting down your
comrades...And yet, I don't care for the way you put down
those guys who have fought up till now."
And so Ichigo places his left hand over his face.
His mask doesn't come out.
Ichigo is shaken at this unexpected development.
And Yammi instantly grabs him.
Ichigo becomes unable to move while in Yammi's grasp.
Yammi: "Hahahahahaha! It seems you can't bring out your stinking mask!!"
Ichigo: "Damn...Why can't I bring out my mask...Is it related to that
uneasy feeling from before...!?"
Yammi: "Well it looks like you're through. You put up a good fight,
at least compared to those tumbling shits over there."
And so Yammi says, "Die, you shit!" and tries to squeeze him to
death with his right hand.
"Hadou 33, Sokatsui!"
Yammi: Argh! Wh...what!? Hey you, come out!!"
Yammi: "What the hell!?"
In a flash somebody cuts Yammi's leg.
"Why the hell are you butting in front of me. Get lost!"
"...What are you saying."
Byakuya and Kenpachi have arrived.
Byakuya: "I'm the one who arrived first. It's good for the elder to know his place."
Kenpachi: "Ha! You don't even know about getting involved and
tearing things from limb to limb."
Two great rivals, paying an announced visit...!?
