Bleach: Ch 662
Easily the most fun I’ve had reading a Bleach chapter in a long time. This chapter had it all: fan service, multiple power reveals, Urahara being Urahara, and important info on the 5 special war potentials.
The interaction between Yoruichi and Urahara easily overshadows anything else that happens in the chapter. Yoruichi reveals yet another form of shunkou only to be immediately disabled by Askin and forced into hyper-sexy-thunder-cat mode. This form must be another extension on shunkou but the cat-like form implies a greater connection to Yoruichi than any normal skill. Perhaps This new form is a type of fusion between shunkou and Yoruichi’s long unseen zanpakuto.
Askin confirms the identity of the 5 special war potentials as, Ichigo, Kenpachi, Ichibee, Aizen, and Urahara. These war potentials were identified as being people with abilities that are unique enough to qualify as an “unknown variable”. Meaning that these five maybe outside of Yhwach’s ability to predict. With Kenpachi already out of the battle and Ichibee defeated, we are left Ichigo, Urahara, and Aizen as keys to turning this fight.
