“I am surprised, really surprised. Gojo-kun seems like a really amusing guy.”

“I am surprised about how nonchalant you are. You do know that you are completely trapped, right?”

Gin smirked at Soi Fon’s remark. That was true.

It wasn’t the first time for him to see a domain type Bankai, since Tosen also had one. But, comparing what he was currently witnessing to the sound and sight deprivation Bankai would be an insult.

Gojo’s Bankai was completely at a whole different level. Furthermore, since his own Shikai and Bankai could not affect space, he couldn’t escape. 

This wasn’t all. He could feel it. This Bankai had other hidden abilities. After all, the same went for him.

‘Hahaha. What a terrifying monster.’

“I have no reason to be scared, truly. For one, us being outed as traitor don’t surprise me. Captain Aizen already speculated that Gojo should be aware of the truth.”

‘Why…’

Soi Fon was baffled. In the plan, none of the three traitors were supposed to know that they were being monitored and shown to the world, but that shouldn’t be hard to guess.

Then why did Gin tell the truth without even being coerced to?

‘It’s as if…as if he wanted everyone to know it.’

“Well. Shall we fight now? Though, we are really ill-matched, don’t you think?”

Not giving her the time to think more deeply about his words, Gin took out his short sword.

What was worth remarking was that, in their base form, both Gin’s Shinso and Soi Fon’s Suzumebachi were the shortest swords in the Soul Society, more akin to daggers.

But in terms of Shikai, the two took different yet similar roads.

One sought to kill enemies with lightning-fast speed by coming as close as possible.

One sought to kill enemies with lightning-fast speed by staying as far away as possible.

“Shoot to kill, Shinso![1]”

Light flashed, but Soi Fon managed to avoid it thanks to her speed.

<<Shunko>>

Landing, she wasted no time either. 

“Sting all enemies to death, Suzumebachi.”

Gin laughed, and for the first time, opened his eyes wide.

“Shall we find out? Between you or my sword…which one is the fastest?”

The first fight to begin was the one between Soi Fon and Gin.

Though the spectators were unable to feel the terrifying spiritual pressure, this didn’t stop them from marveling at the incredible display of power.

Unfortunately, most of them couldn’t even marvel, since they were unable to follow what was happening clearly.

Be it Soi Fon or Gin, their fight had long since broken the speed of sound. Not only the room they were in at the start, but many other rooms had been destroyed during their clashes.

Gin used his weapon sometimes like a spear, sometimes like a gun, and sometimes like a whip. 

The wide arrays of movements available to him were simply mind-blowing.

Soi Fon meanwhile was no slouch. No matter how Gin attacked, she always managed to avoid it. But she had a hard time closing the distance between the two of them.

After all, the closer she was to him, the lower the time for reacting to Gin’s attack would be.

This way, Gin was slowly getting the advantage in this clash.

Most of the people were interested in watching the fight unfold, but that wasn’t the case for everyone. Some found them much more interested in the reason behind the fight.

“It can’t be…”

A few moments ago, in one of the many rooms of the Infinite Castle, Rangiku, who had been trying to escape the room, paused and looked at the screen with disbelief.

Her face paled and her breathing accelerated, as her stress level kept rising.

When Gojo had initially shown the screen, she had been ready to dash and find him before asking him to stop this craziness.

But now, all she could do was stare blankly.

‘No…It should be a lie. It cannot be…’

No matter how much she tried to deny, the evidence was all too clear for her. After all, Gin had admitted it himself.

She didn’t know exactly how he had betrayed the Soul Society, but this didn’t change the fact that he admitted to being a traitor.

The punishment for treason was at best life imprisonment and at worst, death.[2]

Either way, once Gin was captured, the outcome wouldn’t be pretty.

‘I need to find him.’

Thinking so, she immediately took out her sword and chanted, “Growl, Haineko![3]”

The long katana began to disperse into ash and slowly filled the room before destroying everything in the way.

Jumping out, she began to run with ash trailing behind her.

She didn’t know where she was going nor what she could do if she managed to reach the place. But she couldn’t–wouldn’t stop.

She was about to continue running, when–

[STOP MESSING AROUND WITH MY CASTLE, OLD HAG!]

“Wha-!?”

A voice resonated strongly in her mind and a sphere of light surrounded her.

“Where am I?”

When she came to herself, she could see the building of the 1st Division.

“I…I am outside?”

She looked all around her before her gaze settled on the large black cube floating in the sky.

At this sight, she couldn’t even become outraged at the fact that she had been insulted.

“Rangiku, you are also out now.”

“Shuhei?”

Rangiku was startled to discover that she wasn’t alone outside. 

“Were all vice-captains evicted?”

Shuhei shook his head as he pointed at a certain screen with a worried expression.

“Not all of them.”

The screen he was pointing at was showing Kaname Tosen activating his Bankai after being cornered by Zaraki.

‘You must be alright, captain.’

Shuhei clenched his teeth when he saw the black sphere swallow all of them.

He hoped that his captain would come out unscathed.

[1]: I think I already said this trivia but here again. Gin Shikai means God’s spear. Meanwhile, his Bankai, means god’s killing spear. Basically with just the Bankai name, Kubo had already spoiled us about what was the true goal of Gin. I really like subtle foreshadowing like this.

[2]: Aizen wasn’t sentenced to death simply because he cannot die. But damn did he get a very big sentence.

[3]: One of the most OP Shikai I have seen. But Kubo didn’t do her justice. Her weapon is like a more broken form of Senbonzakura(Byakuya’s Shikai). Like imagine, all the ash are tiny particle blades. She can easily make her opponent breathe part of her sword then kill them from inside. or cut their eyes or cut their ears. Even when they speak the blades can enter their mouths or the gaps between the clothes. This weapon should have been one of the deadliest. Of course, the ashes need to be gathered for higher striking power. But imagine fighting while tiny blades cut your arteries and attack your heart and lungs or pierce your eardrums.

Please post the new shk chapter

    Hikaru Genji · 2022-04-30 at 5:44 PM

    Bro. Don’t do that. This will never motivate me. Like, never. If I don’t write it’s because I have other things to do. When I do write. It’s because I am free, rather than because someone asked me. Though I am happy you like my story so much

to be fair the creator of bleach started off with being creative but it slowly just formed into who can hit harder.

Burhh.. Shits getting real..

Another thing I noticed about Gin. Not sure whether Kubo did it intentionally or not, but…

It’s pretty obvious that the God-killing spear is a reference to the spear that was used to stab Jesus, right?

And do you remember the name of the person who used the spear?

Longinus

Lon ‘Gin’ us

Yeah.

Thank you for the chapter. Author don’t worry about what those who only complain or criticize your work for nonsense instead of giving an explanation or constructive criticism of what the problem is say. Keep up the excellent work 🤩👌👍

Bueno me gustó el capítulo.

Soy de habla hispana y no soy de Patreon.

Se lo difícil que puede llegar a ser en escribir una historia. Por eso nunca podría quejarme de que si el capítulo es corto o demasiado largo.

Solamente trata de que no te afecte demasiado, estás en todo tu derecho en cuántas palabras debe de llevar tu historia. De igual forma el rumbo que está misma deba de tomar.

Solo con que disfrutes en lo que haces es más que suficiente. Sigue así y solo ignora esos comentarios molestos. Con tal no les debes nada.

Te tomas la molestia de siquiera publicarlo de forma gratuita en vez solo hacerlo por Patreon y generar una ganancia.

the chapters are getting smaller and smaller … and the interest to read further because of these “stubs” also disappears …

    Hikaru Genji · 2022-04-28 at 3:37 PM

    I really find it funny when people say chapters are smaller and smaller when not long ago I there were many chapters that were about 2.5k long and when the incoming chapters will also be 2K+ long. If your interest is dwindling nothing I can do. I write as much as I want and can because I am not a paid at word count and I use my precious time when I could do something else.

    What’s even funnier is that all those who complain about word count aren’t even Patreon. Don’t you love it when those who actually pay don’t complain about words count but those who read for free complain? Sorry if I am scathing but I am tired of people complaining about words count. Even more so when this arc will be filled of very long chapters that were very tiring to write.
