    It seemed that JDan was at a loss of words at his statement but quickly understood that he wasn't serious. It was something everyone would quickly get used to it but the more he did it now the faster everyone would get used to it. At least, logically speaking. Some things would always surprise a person no matter how long they knew them. Yoshirou then said that only the strong stuff would do on a day like this. As the Head of the Clan, he had the most responsibilities here so he was trying to look out for him but if he was fine with it then Metabee wasn't going to object,'I promise I'll be a good boy.' The trio then left and headed out on their adventure but every once in a while more members approached them to congratulate them. The duo thanked them and went on their merry way but eventually Yoshirou split off to fetch the good stuff. He walked along with JDan in the part of the mansion that he now recognised. They walked alongside each other as he was asked a question about his new position and the Clan. He chuckled,'Too bad you didn't say that before everyone started pointing their swords at me. I haven't done much of actual advising so I can't really say. For now it just feels normal. When all the members come to me with their problems is when I'll see it as the beginning of the job. The mansion is really big so it will take some time to get used to it. The people are all nice and welcoming so overall it's been a good experience. It really was a fun day. I would like for all our members to get along though we can't just simply bring everyone over. We will have a good opportunity for that at the party.' The Captain answered as honestly as possible awaiting further questions.

    JDan wasn’t quite use to Metabee’s since of humor yet so is initial response threw him for a loop. “I, I…” says JDan quickly thinking of what to say next but before he could get another word out the Commander spoke first. Relieved that his words weren’t taken the wrong way JDan sighs. “Seems like I need to brush up on my sarcasm, hehe.” After everyone bided Jessica a goodnight a suggestion of Saki and a place to drink was mentioned. The Commander first stated that beer would have been fine but gave his consent stating, “I don’t have to far to go if I get drunk.” “Oh no, after a day like today only the strong stuff will do. Besides if you get too drunk I’ll hold your hand and make sure you get to bed,” Yoshirou says teasing. Before Metabee could respond JDan spoke backing up Yoshi’s idea for Saki. For a behemoth like him it would take far to many beers to get drunk and the night was already getting late. With everyone in agreement the trio leave the VTS facility and head towards the main building. The trip took a little longer than normal as they were periodically stopped and congratulated on an amazing battle. Luckily it was late so none of the fans went into deeper conversation, thus it only took about six or seven extra minutes to get back. They entered the mansion and just before splitting off from the group to go and get the Saki Yoshi commented on the subject. “I didn’t think a spar this late in the evening would cause such ruckus. Oh well, at least it was caused by excitement and not despair this time. Alright well you two go on ahead I will try and find the good stuff.” Yoshirou then broke off and proceeded to get the Saki. It had been a while since he had drink so the exact placement of the beverage was unknown to him. Once he made it to the kitchen he would just ask one of the maids on night duty. JDan and the Commander were now alone and begin making their way to his room. It was the first time since meeting the new Advisor that they had been alone together. The chief wanted to get to know Metabee better and also had a few question that he wanted to ask him but first he would break the ice before asking anything personal. He might have been a giant among Shinigami but he was not a heathen. "So how are you taking to the Clan and your new position? I hope we're not running you off already as you seem like a great guy."

    After he thanked Jessica she said it was no problem and that they don't condone such behaviour. Since she was one of the guards she probably felt a bit more strongly about this than a normal member would though he didn't think this was such a big deal. In the real world you could see a lot of this when looking at fans of celebrities so it wasn't anything special though it could get quite bothersome both here and there. She then said that she was glad that he had some flaws,'Oh, believe me I am far from perfect.' He smiled as she winked and they headed over to Yoshirou who laughed at his joke. JDan took the opportunity to thank him and apologise for doubting him,'How could you have doubted me? Now we can't be friends!' Metabee said so pretending to sulk for a moment and then spoke properly,'Thanks. It's good to hear that.' Upon his suggestion of drinks, Jessica was the first to speak out and politely declined. He understood and bid her good night as she went off. They weren't going to force anyone to drink if they didn't want to so that was fine but even without drinking good company was still appreciated. JDan took up his offer and Yoshirou suggested to take a bottle of Saki up to Meta's room and hang out there on the balcony. He chuckled,'It seems you are going straight to the stronger stuff while I was thinking more of a friendly beer but that sounds like a fine plan to me. I won't have to walk very far if I get drunk.'

    Metabee took the cup of water and thanked Jessica for both it and saving him. “Don’t mention it, they were acting like dogs drawn to one in heat. Not something we condone here at all,” replied Jessica with a disgusted tone when she spoke about the one’s she ran off. After downing his water the Commander then replied how he could fight with Yoshirou but crowds were a different story altogether. “I wouldn’t sweat it. It’s relieving to know that you aren’t perfect. It would be far more intimidating if you were some great god instead of a flawed Shinigami like the rest of us,” she said winking at Metabee. After their short conversation they both reapproached Yoshirou, though it was Metabee that spoke. Yoshirou laughed at his humorous comment, “I see I am going to have to put you on the watch list,” Yoshi said jokingly. Off course Metabee’s acceptance and growing popularity was a direct reflection of Yoshirou’s decision to give him the job. The better it went the more it could be said that he made the right choice. See an opening JDan speaks out, “Advisor Metabee let me congratulate you on a spectacular fight. I had no idea that a Kido Commander could be so skilled with a blade. I apologize for ever doubting your skills, you’d certainly fit right in around here.” JDan was sure that there were many things he and his fellow clansmen could learn from the Commander. “Impressive isn’t he and that was with him holding back,” adds Yoshirou though Metabee would deny this fact. As the excitement was still heavily in the air a proposal to get drinks was mentioned. The first to speak out was Jessica, “As fun as that sounds I’m going to pass. I’ve never been a drinker and there are a few things I still need to do before calling it a night,” she says, very excited that she was at least included into the group. She then takes the empty cups, bows and bids everyone a good night. “Well, I could certainly use a drink, it’ll help me clam down after all that excitement,” replies JDan. “I’ll join you two though I think I will keep it short; it’s been along day and tomorrow is a new one,” states Yoshirou. “Since it’s the three of us why don’t we just grab a bottle of saki and take it to your room Metabee. We can drink on the balcony under the starlights.” Yoshi suggested this location not only because it would be a lot quieter but also because of its convenient location for the trio as it was the middle room.

    The two Shinigami continued their small talk before returning to reality,'That may be so but only while my mask was active. If it was to wear off your advantage would have increased even more.' Yoshirou then explained that no difference could be felt unless you turned off the pain or went against the rules,'I see. that's convenient. You guys have really thought this all out. I'm curious how it will develop in the future too.' The Noble too felt that one fight was enough so it was time to log off but as for what happened next they would discuss that back in the real world. He was taught how to bring up the control panel to log off so he tried it and it indeed did pop up in front of him. The Captain looked for the log off button and said,'See you on the flip side,' before pressing it and disappearing from the white room. Metabee then woke up in the real world or maybe simply opened his eyes would be more accurate to say. It was definitely much louder than when they started and he didn't hear any of this while they were fighting. He got up from his chair to find that he was a bit dizzy but it didn't last long. Apparently, that was a common side effect after experiencing virtual reality but it was nothing to worry about. Very quickly people gathered around him and all started talking to him. He was surprised but tried to talk with everyone too. Metabee was never popular to this extent so it was a somewhat nice feeling but at the same time quite overwhelming. Especially with all the love confessions. He scratched his head and let out a nervous laugh. It was then that Jessica stepped in and saved him from the crowd which then split up. She apologised for them and handed him a cup of water,'Thanks. For both the water and saving me.' He said so and then drank the water,'It seems like I can fight Yoshirou but I'm still no good with crowds. It looks like I made quite a good first impression though. Much better than getting swords pointed at.' He finished the water and approached Yoshirou, who was just next room to him,'My fanbase is growing. My quest for domination is making progress.' He said so with a smirk to both of them. The room was full of people All of them seemed to be excited after the fight and discussed or still cheered on. He didn't expect to make such an uproar but come to think of it even back at the Kido Corps everyone watched their spar. It's not something you see everyday after all. Maybe this way the members would accept him faster so it turned out pretty well. He didn't feel any tired from the fight but some time has passed since they started. Metabee then stretched out,'Everyone probably won't sleep any time soon from all this excitement. So, how about we go and have a drink? The four of us. Unless, you guys want to call it a night then I don't mind either.' Drinking was one way to strengthen bonds but obviously he didn't mean getting drunk. Only a small celebratory drink would suffice. He didn't think any of them were heavy drinkers to begin with.

    Listening to Metabee respond Yoshirou felt happy that the Commander enjoyed the fight as much as he did. What the Advisor said was true and it wasn't often that either one of them were able to cut loose to this degree; Yoshirou couldn’t help but feel satisfied after such a fight. “Your praises are truly grateful, but I assure you that you certainly didn’t make it easy on me. If the battle continued to progress it could have gone either way,” he replies. “One of the top priorities when developing this machine was to minimize the ability to tell the difference from simulation and reality. As such the only time you can really tell the difference is if the pain setting is turned off or you attempt to do a restricted move. Like in our case attempting to use Bankai. Other than that the experience should be seamless and neigh indistinguishable from the real thing.” The Commander then inquires about what’s next. “I too fell that one battle tonight is sufficient. It’s getting late and we should probably call it a night but we can discuss that once we’re out of here,” says Yoshirou who then brings up a control panel with a simple thought. “Ah, I didn’t get a chance to mention it yet but you can bring up a control panel at anytime by just thinking it. Try it yourself and once its up tap on logoff.” Yoshirou waits for Metabee to logoff. Although the control panel could do more than just log you off it was all they needed for now. Once the Commander signed out Yoshi would follow suit. Before Yoshirou could open his eyes his ears informed him that the facility was much more crowded than when they first started. “Its to be expected,” he thinks to himself as he opens his eyes and stands up. The first people waiting to greet him were JDan and Jessica. They both quickly congratulate him on his victory. Jessica had two cups of water, which she gave one to Yoshirou and then went and gave the Commander the other one. “Impressive fails to describe the two of you, Lord Yoshirou. I see that the Advisor is not only smart but extremely capable and dangerous. It makes complete since why you sought him out,” states JDan. Yoshirou quickly downs the cup water while listening to JDan. “Thanks, I’m glad you are finding it easy to accept him, this greatly pleases me.” As the Advisor got up from the chair he would immediately notice a few fans courageous enough to approach him. The males congratulated him on a tough fought battle and expressed their respect for his strength. The women bickered among each other as each one of them wanted the honor of being the first to profess their undying love. His extreme new fans would smother Metabee for a few seconds before being saved by Jessica. “Scram the lot of you. That’s the Advisor and you are wasting Lord Kyoraku’s time by making him wait,” she says forcefully with a slightly annoyed tone. They instantly retreat and disappear into the other crowds that were still lively and energetically cheering or discussing the fight. “Forgive their forwardness. Its not often you see a battle like that or such a capable individual as yourself thats not Lord Kyoraku,” she said while handing over a fresh cup of water.

    The spar was over and although it did not last long after the release of their Shikai, it was still an intense and well fought battle. From start to finish the pace was kept high leaving no chances for a dull moment. Being able to spar to the death was training experience like no other, which provided many benefits; some of which were accelerated growth and unprecedented safety. As the fight was concluding not a single spectator remained seated. The entire room stood and cheered and the noise became deafening. The roar of the cheers could put even the loudest concerts to shame given the ratio of people to noise comparison. Some shouted Yo-shi-rou while others screamed Me-ta-bee and some cheered for both, unable to decide on just one of them. Once the fight concluded, the noise also started to subside though it was far from quite. Those that were not chanting the participants’ names any longer began discussing and recapping the fight. “Those two are scary on a battlefield,” says JDan awed by the spar. “Scary is only the tip of the iceberg and does not properly describe them. No not at all! If I had to sum it all up in one word it would be Monsters. They are Monsters,” replies Jessica excited and slightly frighten at the same time. “Haha, lighten up a little bit. That’s the Head and new Advisor your talking about after all. They are near the pinnacle of our race and with a lot of discipline, rigorous training and a little luck perhaps even you will touch their realm of power one day,” JDan says encouraging as always though he may have down played the luck part a little. “Perhaps. Though belong to the same clan as them is more than enough for me. Not many can say they serve with Shinigami, better yet, beings of that magnitude,” Jessica response with admiration in her voice. “Now that's something we can agree on,” says JDan folding his big burly arms… Yoshirou’s last combination of attacks seemed to have worked out better that he had hoped and while it looked a bit excessive in force it was done out of mercy. Dying whether in a simulation or real life should not be prolonged… especially when the pain level is set at its real world rating. Yoshi then proceeds to deactivate his Shikai before sheathing both of them. “The battle was won but it was tough fought. Victories like that are the most rewarding,” he thinks, as he’s teleported to a room so white it appeared to be giving off its own light. Once his eyes adjusted to the brightness Yoshi quickly spots the Commander. Wasting no time he makes his way over to discuss what’s next. “What an amazing fight Metabee. I wasn’t sure if I actually had you there at the end but I see luck was on my side right then. Honestly, if I didn’t have the reach advantage we would probably still be duking it out.” Yoshirou then slightly bends over and rubs his legs. “The pain felt so real, it is hard to believe that was all a simulation, right?” Yoshirou had hoped the machine astonished the Commander. Not only did he want to impress his friend but also having such a high level individual praise the device could only help.

    A Menos forest could be the beginning of many great hollows and was once what Monk would have called home. Menos Grande, Adjuchas even Vatso lordes could call a forest it's home, a great place to feast on hollows regularly and a even better place to find ally's. If there where any hollows with the intelligence to speak and as of recent Monk had only come across screamers. Unable to make sense of his words and attack him relentlessly. But it didn't matter to Monk, any lesser hollow was unable to hurt him and thus Monk didn't fight back. He had at least some mercy for his own kind, especially when they were so inexperienced that they would attack him. But with the level of spiritual pressure Monk was releasing, which was very little, as he had little use of it when there where no worthy enemies about. It was no wonder lesser hollows and adjuchas didn't perceive him as a threat themselves. Monk eventually reached the decent that lead to the Menos forest and walked down. He sensed plenty of spiritual pressure. Perhaps he had traveled enough distance in Hueco Mundo to actually reach some form of life again and as Monk descended further he realised why all these hollows where so far out in Hueco Mundo. Monk knew how natural it was for hollows to feast on one another to become a Menos. But what he saw, amazed him. Lesser hollows seemed to be talking to one another, which wasn't out of the ordinary, what was, was the number of hollows almost as if they were cooperating and deeper in the forest Monk saw Menos with unique masks, almost as if this was a farm for hollow. "Madness isn't it, to think we can be civilised" the voice whispers in his head. "In the end what will they become, they will be slain and will go to Seritei, just like every other hollow and they will turn against you as shinigami" Monk stumbles on his way down, this was true. In this state, as lesser hollows and Menos, they didn't even stand a chance against shinigami. "What do I do?" Monk asked. "Devour them...." Monks spiritual pressure explodes in a fit of madness, but he pulls it back, forcing it under control. But he had already attracted the attention of every hollow in the Menos forest and everyone of them stared, stunned and to afraid to battle a monster like him. However calmly Monk makes the rest of his way down into the pit of hollows. 'I'm not a mindless hunter anymore' he thinks to himself parting his hand away from the hilt of his zanpakuto. Monk then took a deep breath as he walked into the middle of all the lesser hollow. "What do you think you can accomplish like this, your all far too weak, you also lack a leader. Someone to protect you from yourselves and the enemies you cannot defeat" Monk says in a low voice as he did not need to raise his voice to be heard. "I can make you stronger and lead you to a future and not towards a simple slaughter from the accursed shinigami." The mocking and familiar voice continues to taunt him though his speech. 'You fool, once they've grown strong they will turn against you. No, no that's not it is it. You'll devour them, your helping them the same way a farmer breeds pigs. For the slaughter.' All seemed to be going Monks way. He could lead this small army to a better future, if he kept them under his thumb they would protect him in time and he for now could protect them. However not all of them shared his view. He'd kept his back turned for too long. A large ape like hollow clamps it's mouth around Monk, but only ends up with a lump in its throats as Monk forces the jaws of the hollow open and brings its mask to the ground, kicking and thrashing it try's to escape. 'If they won't accept my offer, it will be forced upon them until they see sense' with that Monk claws his hand and presses it against the eye socket of the hollow which had attacked him and slowly pushes it in, instantly blood begins to flow and screams flow just as well. "Please stop it hurts!!!!" The hollow screams. "Now you talk, your action spoke for you however. I offered you strength and you turned it down. I will have you pay a price. But not the ultimate one" Monk pulls his clawed hand away from the hollow and let's him go, it them scrambles and retreats into the crowed. "We are not mindless and we are not savages. You seek power" 'And I seek a goal' "You have until I return" Monk says as he disperses the crowd of hollows as he walks. Returning to the entrance of the forest. What he had offered is what he was once offered and it took time to understand and accept. Which he hoped for their sake. They accepted

    Ooc - hoping to make a return to my Roleplay. Have a lot of unfinished business and hope to possibly rekindle some fires of other Roleplayer or new ones. The vast desert of Hueco Mundo, endless white sand under a pale moon and know one knew this better than the Arrancar Monk. Wandering for what felt like month now. Monk had finally come to understand the meaning of endless, this desert went on forever and even without allies he would strive towards an endless life. The Espada, the worthless Espada had given him nothing. They did not have the strength he required, the raging battle against Vatto had proven that much. This far into Hueco Mundo, Monk didn't expect to see anyone or anything. The absence of all life was more comforting than any company he'd ever indulged in. His thoughts were all that were left to keep him company along with his zanpakuto. However his thought, dreams and fears weren't the best company to have with him at all time. As Monk progressed further and further into the desert, the loneliness gnawed at Monk brain, if anyone did turn up, they'd be no ally, if the chains came for him. He rattled his head to rid himself of the sound of chains. But he was never truly rid of them. They haunted him when he rested or when his thoughts drifted. "How long have you been walking?" Someone asked him. "Months? Maybe a year now...... What are you hoping to find? Salvation? Peace? An answer or an end?" Monk swings his zanpakuto behind him, but cuts nothing but thin air. "Why not let a hollow devour you, wouldn't that bring peace to you?" The voice continued to mock him. "Emptiness". That was what Monk was looking for, even though he detested Shinigami, if he was far enough away, surely they'd never bother him, never come searching for him. Without shinigami, without them, his chances at survive rose. If it cost him his sanity, it didn't matter. Monk had lost hope in now finding a cause, finding a purpose. Nothing. Nothing was worthy of him. No Great War, no journey of enlightenment and no peace worth fighting for. "Shame....." , "what's that?" "That Arrancar was worth something, shame he decided to join that worthless Espada. If anyone could have been a worthy ally it was him." Monk remembered his latest right well. His blood hadn't had the chance to rush like that for a long time. But it was all for nought, nothing but a slightly amusement. "And a great inconvenience...." Monk cackled to himself as he looked over to his left arm, completely deprived of clothing to cover the scarred limb, as it had been torn off. No.... much more than torn, it had been erased, during his fight he'd been left with nothing, but a great chunk missing out of his shoulder, that damned Kyohi or whatever Vatto called it had 'rejected' the very existence of Monk's limb, which in turn sent Monk into a fit of rage as he tired to tear Vatto limb from limb and would have succeeded had it not been for the spectators intervening. But had it not been for Vatto he would not have his left arm back. Once the conflict had settled. Vatto used his abilities to not exactly heal, but at least rejuvenate his limb. Which is something Monk never had the pleasure of, having traded all his regenerative abilities for superior strength and what he thought was an unbreakable Heirro. "Had we journeyed together it would have only ended in conflict to produce the strongest among us" Monk argued with himself as he'd experienced destroying someone he once traveled with not long before he turned Arrancar. "Allies are pointless eventually they'll turn against you for their own gain. You can only trust yourself" Monk says out loud looking into the distance and spotting something out of place. An object, bold and vast in size. 'It couldn't be Las Noches? Surely I haven't been going in a circle' Monk thought to himself as he continued walking towards the object and as he got ever closer as the distance was always exaggerated when all there was between one thing or another was sand. As Monk finally reached the object. Monk stared pulled..... 'A boulder' he think. "It's not that unlikely, they must have built Las Noches from something" the voice talk to him again. It wasn't smooth, the boulder was jagged in places, smooth in others, but nothing like the stone that held up Las Noches. It seemed out of place. Monk placed his left hand against the boulder, he hadn't had chance to test out his rejuvenated arm, He pushes against the great bolder. But it remains firm, which Monk would have normally thought impossible. He switches over and uses his right arm and attempts to move the boulder. But still it remains firm and unmoved. Monk took his zanpakuto out of his belt and left it standing in the ground. Walking several feet back Monk expelled the first burst of energy he had in month as he sprinted towards the boulder and crashed into it. Still the great monolith stood against him. 'Never have I ever found something I could not move' Monk was baffled, either his strength had diminished from the lack of activity during these last long month or the battle from Vatto had taken that greater a toll on his body. Monk took his zanpakuto and fit it back into his belt. Then he dug his feet deep into the sand, one behind the other and placed both hands on the opponents that lay before him and he pushed. The colossal boulder still refused to move. "What are you doing?" He heard the voice. Monk was afraid of his answer. "Odd isn't it. Something that rivals my strength, is something as simple as this...." Monk growls putting all his strength into move the monolith. "My strength is unrivalled." Monk focused as he took a step forward and the great boulder shifted. As Monk pushed its true size was revealed as it was unearthed. But Monk fought on, pushing a simple but immense foe towards an unseen goal.

    Metabee started his counterattack with a few Sonideos but Yoshirou kept up with no problem and avoided his stab. One lethal attack was wasted since the Noble simply dodged with Shunpo but he would just keep pushing him with another lethal attack. However, once again this was unsuccessful as Yoshirou used his Zanpakuto ability to fly and redirect his attack. If this carried on, soon the island would be destroyed but that was expected from two Captain rank Shinigami. For his final attack he went with a stab with the back of his hilt but even this didn't work out as well as he wanted since just before the attack hit, Metabee's weight was manipulated and the direction of the attack changed. He still got in a hit but he had hoped for more. His opponent didn't waste any time and in very close range he swung at him twice. Once for the waist and the other was a thrust attack to his chest. Before he could even take out his Zanpakuto from Yoshirou's thigh, he was cut by his Zanpakuto. His upper body was split from his waist making blood go everywhere along with his organs. At least those that he still had since the Zanpakuto devoured his body upon contact. The thrust hit him as well since he couldn't defend himself leading to overkill. This time there was a whole in his chest however it was completely see through. No ribs, no lungs, no heart. It was an instant death but the pain he felt from the two attacks was like nothing he ever felt before. From nothingness, everything went white which was rough on the eyes but he quickly got used to it. He was back with all organs and in one piece. There were no wounds or anything and he felt completely fine. The result was as expected but it was still a good battle nontheless. Experiencing death was very unpleasant but the machine was useful so he would definitely use it again. Now he just had to wait for Yoshirou to get here which shouldn't take long.

    Yoshirou understood gravity and its effects better than any other Shinigami or perhaps any other being currently alive. As such he waited for Metabee to fall, with his speed further increasing by the second. His timing was perfect as he fired an Enso after his opponent was past seventy five percent of the way down. This gave Meta little to no time to react under the given circumstances. With no other choice Metabee once again teleports back to the island and to safety. The Enso and enhanced Rirsu sails into the air harmlessly exploding high above in the sky, like a forth of July fireworks party. Momentarily disappointed that neither of his attacks land, Yoshi maintains his composure, focusing on Metabee and his current whereabouts. Once again the pair were forced into close range so at the very least his attacks managed to accomplish something. “Well at least I used half of the energy to heal so it wasn’t a complete waste,” he thinks to himself as he prepares to receive his friends counter. With a swing of his sword Metabee releases his Shikai silently much like Yoshirou had. This however, is not a surprise but would have been if the Commander had actually needed to recite his release command in order to do so. Both combatants were now in their Shikai state as their power continues to rise and the lethality of the battle soars. Taking the offensive and making the first move Meta uses sonido to take the Nobles back though he reappeared some distance behind him. Yoshirou turns as he could easily sense his opponent whereabouts and could not sense an attack coming. For any Captain class and even some Lieutenant ranked fighters sensing an opponent’s movements is child’s play and a necessity for high-speed combat; or one would only be mere sheep in a lion’s world. Without missing a beat, Metabee continues his high-speed movement to the right. His plan was to force Yoshi to turn in circles chasing his incredible speeds but he was sorely underestimating Yoshirou, making his first mistake of the night. Yoshi focuses on his ability of sensing spiritual pressure relying on this fundamental sense for all spiritual beings that fought. Perceiving an attack coming from his back Yoshirou uses shunpo to completely avoid the attack. The speed of both combatants had only increased after releasing their Shikai and would most like continue to rise the remainder of the battle. Not wanting the distance to grow between them, Yoshi faces his opponent having only moved a few feet further away. Wasting no time the Commander follows up with a Zanjutsu technique that even Yoshirou found troublesome and if landed would cut him in two. There were a few different ways to block this attack but given the timing and speed of the attack, there was only one that made the most since. Instead of wasting energy manipulating gravitons to block the attack, Yoshi chooses the path of least resistance. Having already been in a defensive position Yoshirou arches his left blade and shifts laterally to the right as fast as he could, via flight. His Zanpakuto was longer than Metabee’s and he would use this to his advantage. Instead of attempting to block the full force of the slash, which would have resulted in him being cut anyways, Yoshi simply redirects the attack further to the left while shifting to the right, missing him completely and impacting the ground. The attack collided into the beach with such force that another scar had been carved into the island. The pair had literally left their marks upon the battlefield even if it was only a simulation. Although Yoshirou had avoided two attacks already he wasn’t out of harms way yet. Quickly recovering from the powerful technique Meta turned his blade around stepping in to attack with its sharp jagged edge. The stabbing attack was aimed for his right side chest area and being a smaller blade Yoshi knew it would be much harder to block. Even so Yoshirou remain firm and did not weaver, as he had no intentions of fully blocking the attack. While still hovering Yoshirou steps back with his right leg repositioning himself and opening his stance to better receive the Commander’s attack. Once Meta’s Zanpakuto was within reach of Yoshirou’s spiritual pressure the gravity upon it would significantly increase forcing it downwards, off target. However, Yoshirou would not be able to completely avoid the attack but thought the payoff well worth it. Just as the attack would penetrate Yoshi’s right thigh, he swiftly slashes diagonally downward with his left Zanpakuto, cutting diagonally at Metabee’s waist. No, Yoshirou’s weapons do not cut but devours upon contact, slicing right through Meta taking flesh, bone and clothing indiscriminately. Yoshi then spins his right Zanpakuto around and plunges into the Commander’s center mass. Blood rushed down Yoshirou’s right thigh because of how deeply Metabee's blade penetrated with the influx of gravity. Playing with gravitons, at such close range, was always a double edge sword but to land a decisive blow Yoshi took the risk. Although he was deeply stabbed in the leg, he faired far better than his opponent who lay bisected in two on the ground with a gaping whole in his chest. With such an extraordinary Shikai it was hard to take an attack from them and continue fighting, thus the epic battle concludes. If Metabee was able to perceive the incoming attack, in time and warped, abandoning his last stab then Yoshi’s blade would harmlessly hit the ground scaring it upon contact. This would most likely the case as Metabee was an extremely capable warrior and had to have know that Yoshirou had the reach advantage. Yoshirou takes a deep breath and grins, “Man that was so close I can practically feel the blade in my thigh.” He spoke not to start up small talk but as a little distraction. In the next instant Yoshirou used shunpo and approached Metabee’s created blade that he did not warp to. There were only two blades and they both were close by. If Yoshi wanted to hinder Meta’s movements then he needed to do something about the blades he manifested. With a simple slash that was calm yet assertive the created blade is quickly devoured. Yoshi knew his efforts could be for not as the Commander could create new ones at will, but for some reason hasn't done so recently. This maneuver would put a little more distance between them but Yoshirou already had a plan for that. Staring down Metabee, Yoshirou swiftly raises his right Zanpakuto to draw his opponent's attention. “Kaju no Sekai,” he shouts though he doesn’t move his sword. No this was a ruse as the attack did not come from the Zanpakuto itself but was instead an AoE attack that affected the gravity inside for two seconds unless extended with further energy consumption. Neigh instantly the circumference of twenty yards surrounding Metabee was hit with an enormous increase of gravity. The change was so sudden and immense that the sandy beach below caved in, unable to withstand the pressure. The technique was not a guaranteed hit and if Meta used high-speed movement he could still escape the area of effect. Immediately, Yoshirou shunpo slightly above his target, using the increase of gravity, which would also affect him to boost the blades speed. Attacking, downward, with the blade he used as a ruse before Yoshirou had hoped to deal significant damage to his target but was well aware that nothing was guaranteed and anything should be expected. The battle pushed forward an with Shikai now activated the toll on Yoshirou's stamina would increase. The longer the battle was drawn out the more the taxing Yoshi's Shikai would be on his body.

    Metabee continued his attack after the Bakudo successfully hit. The element of surprise was always important and especially in battle. It could be said that in terms of techniques Yoshirou has reached his peak but the Captain still had some room to develop. This of course could change once the Noble would master nature change and learn his new Kido. That would probably change his fighting style thanks to all the possibilities that would come with it. However, it seems that in this fight Yoshirou would not try to use his newly learned skill in combat. Once in the air, Metabee began charging his attack but Yoshirou didn't stay put for as long as he wanted, crushing his hopes and dreams. That was why he never used this attack in combat before and if he wanted to then he would need someone to distract his opponent for him. If all went well it could change the tide of the battle. This was something he learned during the four month period the Kido Corps was being rebuilt when both of his spirits decided to train him. To his surprise Yoshirou didn't do anything and instead waited for his attack to finish charging. When he fired the arrow, the Noble prepared himself and instead of an explosion the attack simply disappeared thanks to Yoshirou's Shikai being activated,'Ugh, how annoying.' He then began falling with his Zanpakuto held with both hands above his head. His opponent wouldn't wait that long and after he fell the majority of the distance Yoshirou made his attack by launching two blasts of energy at him. He remembered that the last time he got hit by one of his Zanpakuto abilities the fight was brought to an end. Metabee couldn't allow that to happen once again. Dodging those two attacks by normal means would be no easy feat especially since he was falling. The Captain warped back to the island to continue the battle. If he didn't learn the ability to warp, this battle would have ended quite some time ago probably. Now that Yoshirou was in Shikai he could absorb any spirit energy he throws at him so he could only rely on his Zanpakuto and potentially some Kido. His opponents wounds have healed due to Metabee's earlier attack but he was also healing...just slowly. The wound in his left side was now healed along with his right foot though his bone still hurt a bit so the inside wasn't completely healed. The burn marks were also still there but hurt less and the smaller ones disappeared. The most serious wound however was only half healed. The Captain looked at Yoshirou who was standing there and awaiting his next move. This was supposed to be a battle to the death and he could end it with one stab. Yet, he chose to go on the defensive. With a swing of his Zanpakuto he also released his Shikai. Although, he was at a disadvantage in terms of abilities but depending on the way they are used they might save him. If his opponent wasn't going to make a move then he would have to. The Captain would begin by trying to get into position for his attack. To do this he would use Sonido. The first time he used it, he reappeared some distance to the left but the next time he would use it Metabee would disappear from sight as he would reappear behind Yoshirou and to his left. The Noble would probably turn around so he would Sonido once more a bit to Yoshirou's right so that he would have to keep turning to keep him in his sight. From his original position he could have simply Sonidoed once to his current position but instead he did so in a Z pattern in order to give his opponent a harder time. Now that he was behind him, Metabee reinforced his arms with spirit energy and using a Kendo stance he went for a stab to Yoshirou's right side. If this was successful, he would twist the blade to the left. Even normally this was a lethal move but thanks to his Shikai's irregular shape it made it even more so. He would then follow by kicking the Noble in the stomach in an attempt to quickly remove the sword out of his side. With his blade removed, through the kick or by simply pulling it out, he would raise his Zanpakuto above his right shoulder and swing diagonally. If the stab would miss or be parred/blocked, Metabee would then reposition his sword and with his full speed he would use the Zanjutsu technique known as Agitowari aiming for his left side of the body. Since he was using physical attacks, Yoshirou wouldn't be getting any extra energy to heal and even he wouldn't be able to heal if his body was cut apart. He would follow this up by using the 'blade' at the end of his hilt for another stab attack aimed at his opponent's right lung. Due to the fact that the blade was smaller it would be harder to block or parry so dodging would be the best bet, if Yoshirou wasn't cut up that is. Unless Yoshirou would decide to cut or stab him all he had to do was push him until he made a mistake and Metabee would only need to watch out for Kido and his abilities. Mask: 5 posts Shikai:

    The battle rages on as Metabee dons his mask to avoid taking further damage though this was all within Yoshirou’s calculations. Using his right Zanpakuto and a small thin force field created in front of his blade Yoshi was able to avoid damage, only being pushed back a few yards. While it can’t be compare to the release of a Bankai, donning ones Hollow Mask was still something to be weary of. Had he not expected Meta to take this route the outcome would have surely been different. Yoshirou launches Hyapporankan while simultaneous the Commander charges a cero. The cero charges forth colliding with the Bakudo, taking out two, before exploding and taking out dozens more. Even still Yoshirou manages to strike Meta with the kido. The explosion though consumed roughly fifteen percent of the incoming rods dampening the cero's lethality, leaving Yoshirou to only have to deal with the remaining concussive force. With his left had still in front of him, from just launching the kido, he condenses the gravitons creating another thin force field, dealing with the rest of the residual concussive force. Finishing his combination Yoshi strikes with a powerful Kendo technique but Meta warps at the last second avoiding the deadly attack. A gigantic crevasse is etched into the island leading all the way to the beach on the other side. Slowly water begins to flood in though it would take some time to fill it entirely. Just like the two combatants the island too was now taking damage under the force of two great powers… “That’s it,” says JDan. “What do you mean,” asks Jessica confused by the chief’s sudden outburst. “That is where I would have just died. Even if I managed to survive the attack I wouldn’t be able to continue battling, certainly not at this same level of intensity,” JDan answers. “That’s not true. I thought your defenses were supposed to be neigh un-impenetrable which was one of the reasons why you have been the Lords personal guard for so long,” replies Jessica to some the rumors she has heard before. JDan smirks as he responds. “You said it yourself. The keyword is neigh. It’s true that I could have blocked that attack but only with the use of one of my Zanpakuto abilities and I would not have had time to deploy it just then. These two are leagues above anyone here. Perhaps even the strongest in all of the Soul Society right now, but the scary thing is they both are still holding back even more power than what they have displayed thus far…” “Byakurai,” shouts Metabee. Yoshirou strafes to the right to avoid the Hado but is instead is hit with a Bakudo. In fact it was the same Bakudo that he was hit with in there previous spar but this time he had no way of knowing it was coming. It was one thing to call out the name of a Kido and simply use it as a feint but to use a completely different Kido could only be done by someone well verse in the Kido Arts. “I would expect nothing less from you the Kido Commander,” Yoshirou thinks to himself though it doesn’t do him any good in helping him out of the situation he was but in. Having caught him off guard had Meta immediately attack; Yoshirou would have been in a serious jam. Instead Meta retreats to the skies giving Yoshi time to deal with his bindings. “Aaaaaahhhhhh,” Yoshirou screams raising his spiritual energy to its peak in his current state, crushing the Bakudo under the pressure. By the time he was free Meta made it high above him and created a weapon that was very unusual for a Hollow, Shinigami, or Vizard. Bounded for a few seconds Yoshi had to watch as his friend took the high grounds from him, a position that he would have liked to maintain. Having the high grounds was always beneficial giving that person the advantage and even a battle between spiritual type beings this still would hold true though the advantage was reduced. With both Zanpakutos down by his side, with a traditional grip, Yoshirou looks on as Metabee charges up what is most likely the most powerful moved used so far. “I had hoped to fight longer without using my Shikai but it would be a tactical error to let all that energy simply vanish; besides that would be looking down on you which I certainly do not,” he thinks as he prepares to defend against the mighty attack. Of course he could also use Danku to easily block the attack but as stated it would be a sin to let such condensed energy go wasted. With a firm grip on both Zanpakutos, Yoshirou waits until the arrow is shot before releasing his Shikai. Yoshirou and his Zanpakuto spirits had an usually harmony and understanding that many strived for but only few achieved. This allowed him to shorten his Bankai release command down to a single word and his Shikai could be summoned wordlessly. However, releasing Shikai this way forgoes the explosions and dramatics typically associated with this type of release. Even still the slash on his leg would seal and stop bleeding though it still resembled a fresh cut and the pain from the burns would dull. As the charged up shot made its way towards him, Yoshirou pointed out his left Zanpakuto, which looked like a shadowy silhouette of a sword. The weapon as dark as the abyss instantly devoured the energy attack like it had been mistreated and malnourished for years. Yoshirou immediately used half of the high quality energy to further heal his wounds. The fresh burn marks had lost its sting of pain though the skin was still redden showing signs of trauma. The cut, on the right side of his, right quad had further sealed over and instead of looking like a fresh wound it now looked like a scar that was a couple weeks old. Yoshirou’s ability to heal was a far cry from a Vizard or Hollow’s regeneration. He couldn’t grow back limbs or heal fatal wounds but it still helped him out of tight situations plenty of times. After successfully blocking and devouring the attack Yoshirou continues to keep his gaze set up the Commander who proceeds to utilize Kendo. With both hands on his Zanpakuto, Meta begins to fall using the momentum to increase the power behind his slash. Yoshi was a Master of gravity and understood the power incorporated into the attack and although he could easily reverse it Yoshi chooses another route. Once Metabee passed roughly three fourths of the ways down Yoshi sprung into action. “Enso,” says Yoshirou swinging his right Zanpakuto to his left side. A horizontal streak of energy rockets forth headed towards his opponent. With both Zanpakutos down by his left side Yoshirou unleashes a dual slash upwards with both swords. “Rirsu,” he replies again unleashing another blast of energy towards Metabee. Not only was the strength and speed greatly enhanced by being launched with both swords it was further augmented with the remaining energy devoured from the Kido Commanders attack; making it possible a deadly attack even if blocked. His plan was to trick and ensnare Metabee with the first attack Enso. Most would make the mistake and believe the Enso to be an energy attack similar to getsuga tensho but they would be severely mistaken. Instead of exploding on contact it wraps and binds anything it touches, dramatically increasing the pull of gravity on those caught by it. If compared to a Bakudo it would be ranked in the seventies. Since Metabee was using Kendo there was a chance he could cut through the attack altogether if he went with that option instead of blocking for some reason. But even that should make a small enough opening giving Yoshi time for the second and main attack to land. Yoshirou was hopeful that something would come of this attack. With his timing and the speed Metabee fell, dodging would be difficult even for the Commander. If the Rirsu landed the Enso too would explode further increasing the damage dealt while simultaneously Yoshirou would charge in with a final downward diagonal slash with his left sword. This time he would manipulate the gravitons to make his weapon impossibly light emphasizing speed instead of strength this go around. If the attacks missed and Metabee manages to warp or otherwise avoid the attacks Yoshirou would go on the defensive. With the majority of both their wounds being healed due to a release or other ability it was almost like starting the battle anew. Receiving careless damage now could be a much more costly mistake due to the increase of power now being displayed. And for Yoshirou, he could not ascend beyond this point as Bankai was deemed off limits. Reiatsu appearance Shikai

    Embracing the cold still air, Monk now laying on top of the giant monolith he had been pushing for days now. He didn't know where he was taking it. What he did know though, was that it was coming with him. It gave him something of worth to prove that he could move this and that his strength was on another level. Nothing else seemed important, even the hollows that had followed the trail he'd left in the sand. They roared and screamed unable to do anything about his position on top of the monolith. He could no longer remember when he was just a lesser hollow. No better than an animal. 'I suppose I wouldn't have know that back then though' Monk thought sitting up seeing that once again nothing and no one was around him anymore. " "Why are you doing this?" Monk turned around. An arrancar sat beside him. Similar to him, its mask was cracked roughly down the middle and wore white robes, but in comparison to Monks they were far cleaner and the arrancar appeared to be a lot younger than he was. "Doing what?" Monk questioned. "Nothing. Your goal is pointless, what do you gain?" The arrancar questioned him. "I prove my-" , "you prove nothing! You showed your strength, once there would have been at time when a hollow would not approach you. The Espada would have been proud to have you in their ranks. You are a failure and this, this thing you call a foe, is holding you back and in the end will only get you killed." The arrancar swings his fist down onto the giant bolder, cracking the top of it. "If I attract attention to myself again. If I raise an army, if I raise my strength, if I join an alliance, my chances of dying rise." Monk flinches as he hears something behind him and he stands up to see if he could see what had made it. "Then your existence is point!" The arrancar bellows standing up, challenging Monk. "I will not end my existence!" Monk goes to challenge the arrancar, slamming his foot down on the arrancars leg. But the arrancar had already disappeared and all he had achieved was expanding the crack on the bolder. Monk jumped off the bolder back to the bottom and began pushing again. "MONK" the arrancar had reappeared throwing a fist at his head, but he had already revealed himself by shouting. Monk dodged the punch by sidestepping to the left and using the momentum to change into a kick, but this missed the arrancar had jumped and was already aiming his heel towards Monks temple. Once again it missed and Monks next attack did and the arrancars attack after that. This pointless fight raged on, every attack that the arrancar threw missed. Unknowingly destroying what he wished to save. Monks final swing, once again missed the arrancar who was once again gone and Monks fists had landed into one of the cracked lumps of the bolder, looking further upon the battlefield, Monk found the lump was one of many. "I've saved you from your pointless goal" the voice whispers to him. In a fit of rage, Monk leaps into the battlefield once again. Crushing the last fragments of the bolder, if it was going to be destroyed it would be by his own hand. He tosses and crushes and smashes all the blocks together slowly eroding it down into the white sand beneath his feet. Only showing him that his goal, what he thought was a foe was in fact worth nothing. It was as pathetic and pointless as the thousands of grains of white sand that rested beneath his feet, it had been greater than him for a time. But he had mastered it. Pushing it the great distance that he had, had once again bolstered his strength. Monk began to wheeze breathing in the sand that was settling down from his massacre. Then he began to cough and slowly he turned into a laugh. "I truly am my greatest ally" Monk said to himself still laughing. Once Monk had got over his recollection, he ran deeper into the desert of Hueco Mundo, the vast endless desert and in Monks head, if the desert was endless then surely there would be endless goal to conquer. Which in turn would make him stronger and help him survive, that was all he ever wanted. The rattling of his nightmares had never felt so far away and if he kept running then he would only make the distance greater. There were so many goals to choose from in Hueco Mundo however and not all of them worthy of Monk. Finding the ones of worth would be a great challenge in itself. However one shortly presented itself, the spindly white tips of a Menos forest stood in the distance. If something could be of worth, it could be there. So Monk marched on, his eyes fixated on his destination.

    Both of them continued their attack. Even though the fight hasn't been going on very long they were already wounded and using their lethal tricks and tactics. Tension was definitely very high as both tried to predict the other's moves but did not know the full extent of the others powers. Even so, both of them were still enjoying the fight very much. Such excitement and adrenaline was worth waiting for but in the end one of them would have to experience death for this battle to end. As Yoshirou charged at him, Metabee made his counterattack. One of the swords that he had thrown were deflected but as long as one of them was there the attack would be somewhat lethal. Yoshirou being Yoshirou, he did a great job of countering that while charging with his thrust attack. Such quick reactions could only be praised. Once they were all close up and personal, the Noble shifted position to not be hit in the back by his thrown blade. The three swords then clashed with Yoshirou's swing. He didn't have any time to dodge so he blocked it but that's exactly what Yoshirou wanted. Instantly, he felt his body becoming much heavier as his weight was manipulated. Now he definitely wouldn't be able to dodge. The clashing swords were being slowly pushed back bit by bit towards the Captain's chest. Even if his movements were being restricted he was pushing back with all his strength. Both of his hands were busy, but Yoshirou still had a free hand and a Zanpakuto so he used that to his advantage. The Noble drew his second Zanpakuto and tried to stab him in the right foot. Even if his body was restricted that didn't mean he couldn't use a Kido. Right where he was about to be stabbed he cast a Seki though unfortunately it was a bit too late. The force behind the stab was reduced but the Kido was cut through and his foot was stabbed. The blade didn't go all the way through but it was about halfway through. Now he was stuck in two place. Between a rock and a hard place. Just what he needed. Metabee grimaced from the pain. The Noble continued his attack by using his sword to cut him from chest to stomach. The created swords began cracking under the weight and wouldn't last any longer. Even the best swords wouldn't be able to withstand such force. The wound was quite serious and since Yoshirou did it slowly it hurt even more. Streams of blood would flow out of the wound and go down his chest and stain his clothes. This was really not looking too good for him. He had no choice but to pull out one of his trump cards. Before Yoshirou could complete his final attack on him, Metabee put on his Vizard mask which caused a burst of spiritual pressure to push his opponent back. The swords he had in his hands shatter but he would not give his opponent any time to regain his posture. He quickly charged a Cero and fired it at Yoshirou. His opponent was also quick and launched a Kido at him. It was likely to be a stalemate as in both would be hit by each others attacks. The Captain, who just regained control of his body, was once again restricted by the Kido. Due to the Kido hitting him he lost his balance and was pinned to the ground but he let out his increased spiritual pressure to desintegrate the Bakudo holding him. This moment was enough for Yoshirou to launch another attack which was a lethal Zanjutsu technique. At the last second, Metabee managed to get rid of the Kido and warped away from the attack although he still wasn't back to full speed yet. Due to his earlier burst of spiritual pressure when putting on the mask, the sword was also blown back a distance and now found itself diagonally to the left of Yoshirou. He raised his right index finger as fast as he could and pointed it at Yoshirou,'Byakurai!' Though that was actually a fake. He wanted Yoshirou to block the Kido but what was actually launched was a Rikujokoro. He needed to bind his opponent in one place for just a few seconds. If the binding was successful, Metabee would instantly reinforce his left foot with spirit energy and leap as high as he could to make some big distance. Even for Yoshirou it would take a few seconds just to break the Kido just like it took him and that was what he needed. In his left hand, Metabee made the most contradictory weapon for a Shingami. A longbow. In his right hand, what was created was or arrow but to be precise it was a sword that was modified to be shaped like an arrow. He set the arrow in place and drew the bow back to start charging the attack. Large amounts of Hollow spirit energy started gathering at the arrow head to the point that sparks were coming off the ball. The biggest weakness of this technique was that it took 10 seconds to charge. Each next arrow would take a further 5 seconds to charge as he would be putting more force in it but in this situation Yoshirou would be free by that time so he would only fire one. Immediately, when the attack was ready he fired it straight at Yoshirou. Once launched the arrow would engulfed by the spiritual energy causing it to become a big bullet of destructive energy. The force of the attack was equivalent to that of a weak Gran Rey Cero but it was still nothing to sneeze at. If Yoshirou was to block it directly with both of his swords then he would probably be able to get away with minor damage to his body. If he blocked it with one Zanpakuto he would probably be able to repel it but it would likely break his guard. Upon impact, the force of the bullet would create what would seem to be a small earthquake and if it hit the island then that part of the ground would be destroyed. It was definitely a lethal attack and especially when coming from a Captain level opponent. If Yoshirou was to block the technique then Metabee would unsheath his Zanpakuto in a Kendo stance and do a falling slash attack at Yoshirou. In the case of Yoshirou not being bound by the Bakudo, he would have to try a different strategy. Metabee would draw his Zanpakuto and would leap at him to use the Zanjutsu known as Agitowari. This would be followed by a horizontal slash aimed at the Noble's thighs. His legs were the most injured so it made sense to attack them. No matter the action taken Metabee's wounds would start healing ever since putting on his mask but none were fully healed. The wound on his chest and stomach, and the most severe one, would take the longest to heal which put him at a big disadvantage since he we losing quite a lot of blood because of it so it would weaken him over time. It already was beginning to weaken him but the fight would continue. Hollow Mask (6 posts): Longbow: Arrow:

    Footsteps rapidly taping the ground echoes off the walls of the Kyoraku Mansion. At this time in the evening it was a rare occurrence and usually meant something was wrong or something unusual was happening. A lone guard raced up the stairs, making haste to the chief of security’s room. Bursting through JDan’s bedroom was none other than Jessica. “Come quickly, there battling in the VTS,” she says frantically. Someone else might have asked who but JDan already knew. There was only one pair that would cause Jessica to come report something like that to him. Training was a common thing amongst Shinigami and the Virtual Training Simulator would soon be the new way of doing so. The culprits had to be none other than the Advisor and Lord Kyoraku or else there would be no need to come to him with this information. Not saying a word JDan disappears shortly followed by Jessica. “How long have they been fight, how much have I missed?” These were both thoughts that coursed through his brain but anytime spent asking questions would only increase that number. Although JDan and Jessica made excellent time by the time they got there the small crowd of thirty swelled to more than a hundred. Pretty much everyone that was off duty and still awake had heard what was happening and made their way there. Even some who couldn’t resist sneaking off duty and those being woken up with the news started flocking to the facility. Everyone congregated in multiple groups around the numerous different screens and some were even starting to order snacks and beverages as the lively room became more and more festive. Jessica and JDan made there way through to the biggest screen though it also had the larges crowd. But there was still plenty of space showing off just how big the facility actually is… Seeing the two blades speed by him, Yoshirou is only able to strike one down while the other one eludes him as he was surprised by this maneuver. If he would have attempted to swat both of them down then he would not have had the time to follow through with is thrusting attack. The blade that was struck would land, in the ground, a little ways behind Metabee. Metabee was proving just how quick he could be by not only creating two short swords to throw at Yoshirou, but also two more to intercept the remainder of the Zangerin, and Yoshi’s Zanpakuto before the blade could find its mark. The attack went from a serious wound to a glancing blow showing the Commanders skills and experience. Fully aware of the dangers of having his back to one of Metabee’s blades, Yoshirou quickly shuffles diagonally to, his left, via flight manipulation. This would put the sword that was in his blind spot, now on his right side and the one stuck in the dirt to his left in front of him. As Yoshirou drew back his sword Metabee began a counter of his own. Swing at Yoshi’s stomach Meta unleashes a slashing attack. Having no choice Yoshirou partially draws his other Zanpakuto, with his left hand, quickly guarding his stomach. After intercepting Meta’s blade Yoshirou sheathes the left blade once more as he continues to defend against the Commander’s attacks. With his right Zanpakuto, now, back at his guard Yoshi tilts his sword, repositioning it, once again parrying the attack. Meta was right where Yoshirou wanted him and that was in close quarter combat. With his Zanjutsu skills and his Zanpakuto abilities Yoshi’s skill up close was contested by very few people. Yoshirou could see the previously created blade returning, aiming for his side but didn’t care, as he would not let it force distance between them once again. Raising his right hand above his head Yoshirou swings down vertically clashing to a deadlock with Metabee’s cross slash attack he made with both swords. Once again the attack was not fueled by raw physical power but the manipulation of gravitons increasing the power and speed behind it, which would transfer into Metabee. Immediately as the three blades collided Yoshirou instantly used the connection between them to increase Meta’s weight exponentially making it neigh impossible for him to move. Simultaneously the blade that Meta through now returned colliding with Yoshirou’s spiritual pressure. Instead of striking Yoshi in the ribs and possible being fatal the blade falls due to the increased gravity from his spiritual pressure. Although the blade misses its mark it still hits Yoshirou, cutting the side part of his right quad before landing at their feet. Blood rapidly ran down his leg but this was all with in his expectations. Again with Meta so close Yoshirou willing took the hit in order for the opportunity to deal significant damage. Yoshirou lets out a grunt after receiving the damage but does not waste this moment that presented itself before him. With a reverse grip Yoshirou fully unsheathes his second Zanpakuto and plunges it into Meta’s right foot attempting to further cripple his movements. If he couldn’t land a fatal shot he had planned to go for Meta’s legs, as that would have a bigger impact than aiming for his arms. Someone that could freely create and manipulate blades within a certain range could still fight even if both arms were severed; thus the conclusion he came to was the most logical. If the surprise attack landed then Meta’s mobility would be further hindered as the gravity increases even more. The scene wouldn’t look good for Metabee. Not only would he be pierced to the grown but also have the three blades pinned up against his chest, which was Yoshirou’s initial anchoring point. Continuing on the offensive Yoshi forces his sword straight down the left side of Meta’s chest and stomach, overpowering the Commander with gravity; though the created long swords provided a little resistance so that it was not a fatal wound but still a serious one. Yoshirou draws back his right Zanpakuto and though the first anchor point was released the second one still pinned Metabee to the ground maintaining the connection needed to manipulate his opponents gravity. Currently with a significant speed and mobility advantage Yoshi brings his sword back upwards, vertically slashing at Metabee’s right side. This attack had a great chance of landing and causing more serious damage to his opponent backing him into a corner. Returning to his guard Yoshirou would prepare to finish the fight in his next attack if Meta remained unable to escape. Yoshirou planned his attack carefully but never underestimated his opponent. He knew that there were at least three ways in which the Commander could escape. First he could warp to the sword that Yoshi struck down initially which was behind Metabee to the right. If he warped to the one at their feet then the outcome would be the same and Yoshi’s attack would surely land. Metabee’s second option would be to momentarily overpower Yoshirou in a burst of power with the release of his Shikai or Vizard mask. And finally by using Tsuzuri Raiden but this would also shock Metabee; as the three blades were pinned to his chest so it was the least likely option, cause it wouldn’t really yield favorable results. The first two were both sure fire ways to escape the onslaught and avoid taking major damage or perhaps any damage at all. But they were both within Yoshi’s calculations. No matter which choice Meta chose he would remain in close range, which is where Yoshi fights best. If Meta warped to the nearby sword, before being stabbed in the foot or receiving any damage, Yoshirou would immediately launch a Bakudo with his left hand. “Hyapporankan,” he shouts launching one of is favorite kidos at close range. The single rod would split into a hundred others making it extremely difficult to avoid from here. If hit Metabee would be pinned down and Yoshirou would close the distance with shunpo and appear behind him unleashing a horizontal strike at about waist level. If the kido missed Yoshirou would move in once the last rod passed him reengaging in close range combat using Kendo. Yoshi’s plan was to keep the pressure on Meta hoping that he would be forced into making a mistake. Once in range Yoshirou swings upwards, diagonally to his left, though this time he relied on pure Kendo skill rather than gravity as it took less of a toll on his stamina. The fight had not been going on very long but the intensity of it was through the roof. Yoshirou would begin to show small signs of fatigue, like taking deeper breaths, though he was far from panting. If the attack landed it would cleave clean through Metabee’s flesh dealing serious and possibly fatal damage. Even if it was blocked with created swords or a barrier, being Kendo there was a good chance of slicing right through them depending on their durability, but the damage dealt would be less severe. After the attack Yoshirou would return his sword to a defensive position but would maintain close quarter combat, following Metabee if he attempted to put distance between them. If Metabee went the other route and released his Shikai or Vizard mask, Yoshirou would block the outburst of energy with a combination of his Zanpakuto and a thin, weak force field created by the manipulation of gravitons. This would still cause Yoshi to be pushed back a few feet but would prevent him from taking further damage. Unless he started dealing out more damage than his opponent Yoshirou would have no chance in winning. It was clear that his legs were getting damaged and if this kept up they would turn form moderate to severe. With a very small gap again between them Yoshi would still rely on one of his favorite Bakudo. “Hyapporankan,” he shouts unleashing the kido described earlier. Even though it would be hard to dodge the rods at this range, there hold wouldn’t be as strong since the Commander is in his Shikai or Vizard state. But all Yoshirou would need was a mere second of an opening to capitalize on it at this range. If hit or not Yoshirou would close in the distance, attacking down diagonally with Kendo once again. But this time he used a powerful technique that only expert level Zanjutsu users and above knew called Ryodan. With Metabee in Shikai/Vizard, Yoshirou had to rely on more powerful skills and deadlier techniques to try and keep the pressure on; but that was much easier said than done… The crowds in the VTS Hall roared with cheers. As expected they were all routing for Lord Kyoraku but as the fight progressed that started to change. More and more were starting to cheer for Metabee as they were fascinated by his abilities and skills. By now twenty percent of the people were going for Meta, fifty percent for Yoshirou and thirty percent cheered for both. “This is insane, I can hardly keep up!” exclaims Jessica. “Chief how’d you think you’d fair?” JDan wanted to look at her with a dumfounded expression but he couldn’t peel his eyes from the screen; to miss a mere second at this point would be devastating as everything was happening so fast. “I would like to think that I wouldn’t be dead yet but if I went in underestimating them I certainly would be. I can say for sure that I would have already released my Shikai and about to release my Bankai, if I hadn’t already.” “No the only rule they have set into play is that Bankai is off limits,” Jessica says informing JDan. “I see. Who would have thought an Advisor to be this strong or a Kido Commander so skilled with blades? I’m understanding more and more why you chose him, Lord Kyoraku,” JDan replies.

    Having such a great distance between them, Metabee began his assault to get in close range once again. Yoshirou sheathed one of his Zanpakutos but that did not make him any weaker whatsoever but having one sword is easier to deal with than two. As a fellow dual wielder he knew this very well but nonetheless both styles were very lethal. With his free left hand the Noble fired off a Shakkaho towards the swords causing a massive explosion that outmatched his expectations. He created a quick barrier in front of him and covered his face with his left arm. The Kido explosion pushed the barrier and him backwards but due to the force of the explosion the barrier was destroyed and his arm and the left top part of his chest took damage. The Shihakusho he was given earlier was now missing a left sleeve and the top left part though in the real world it was still in one piece. Burn marks were scattered throughout his left arm but there was only a few smaller ones on the chest. Since his left hand was undamaged it wouldn't affect his ability to dual wield but the marks made sure to let him know that they were there. Any attack that came in contact with a burn mark would make it hurt so much more,'Maybe this wasn't the best idea...' Thanks to his luck or amazing strategy Yoshirou also shared a similar fate when he looked up at him but in his case it was the legs,'Good thing it didn't burn more of his clothing...Female viewers may have enjoyed such a view but I can pass on such a sight.' His assault was stopped but before he could continue it was Yoshirou who made a move. The Noble swung his Zanpakuto and used a Kido knows as Zangerin to send a large wave of energy at him while he charged behind the wave. It didn't put him in an easy spot since he used a high level Kido and was right behind it. Blocking it would mean getting hit so if he wanted to dodge up or down was the way to go but unlike the Kido Yoshirou could change direction anytime he wanted. His next few actions would require precise timing since it was risky but would definitely pay off if it was successful. He cleared his mind and focused as much as possible. Metabee changed into a Kendo stance and reinforced his arms and Zanpakuto with spirit energy to swing and release a stronger vertical compressed wave of wind at Yoshirou's attack. It was pretty much like the Noble's previous attack just with less power. However, that was not nearly enough to stop the Kido, only to weaken it and slow it by a few moments. Immediately, after the gust of wind was launched he would sheath his Zanpakuto and put out his left hand to create a five layered barrier. It was the same one he used during the previous spar but this time it had additionaly two layers and he put more spirit energy into it to make it more durable. The Noble must have thought he was crazy to sheathe his Zanpakuto at a time like this but the truth was he needed to dual wield one of his created sets for this technique to work. Even if it is not successful, the created swords should be enough to parry a hit or two. The Kido collided with the barrier destroying the first two smallest layers but at the same time the Kido was losing power while the barrier was getting stronger the closer it got to Metabee. When the Kido reached the fifth, and last, layer Metabee began his counterattack. He created the Yin and Yang shortsword set in his hands and at the instant the barrier broke he threw them behind Yoshirou,just passing his neck, which were not meant as a distraction or a warp but were a very important factor in this technique. Metabee would then create another set of the same swords and with the Yin blade in his left hand he would cut through the almost gone Kido. With the Yang blade he would swing at Yoshirou's thrust attack to redirect it, only to be slightly grazed by it and leave a wound in his left side, before swinging with the Yin blade at Yoshirou's stomach. Meanwhile, after he made his second set of the Yin Yang set, the thrown swords would recurve like a boomerang and come back towards Metabee which in this case was now Yoshirou's back. Naturally, Yin and Yang existed as one so it was attracted to the second set like a magnet. The Captain then swung the Yang blade diagonally aiming at the Noble's chest. Once the second attack was done, Metabee would cross his arms and pour more spirit energy into them to reinforce them. The shortswords would then change form due to more energy in them making them sharper and more durable. The shortswords were no longer shortswords and became the length of a normal katana though the actual blade was much bigger and the upper part was covered in thorns. The Captain would then swing both of them as a cross slash and at the same time the thrown swords would now be back and would stab Yoshirou in the back. A lethal attack from the back and front. An attack that would be able to kill any weaker opponent but Yoshirou was not such an opponent. If this was successful, it wouldn't be enough to kill him but would seriously wound him. The weaknesses of this attack were clear. If it has been seen before then the person would know that the best way to dodge is sideways though this might not be easy due to attack from the front. Furthermore, if the thrown swords were destroyed then this only became an attack from the front which would completely make it much less lethal than it is supposed to be. After completing this attack Metabee would take a defensive stance with his two reinforced swords until he can get an opportunity to back away and unsheathe his Zanpakuto once again. If Yoshirou was to destroy the first set that was thrown then Metabee would change tactic as he wouldn't want his opponent to see this technique if that was the case. The barrier and the swords being destroyed the very weakened Kido would head right at the unarmed Captain. Metabee would pour spirit energy into his stomach and release his spiritual pressure to decrease the damage taken leaving him with a shallow cut that would slightly bleed. As for the thrust attack, he would intercept it by creating a ball of Seki at the point Yoshirou would strike him to repel the attack. This would give him the opportunity to unsheathe his Zanpakuto and instantly swing at Yoshirou in a diagonal motion starting from downward and going upward. This means the swing was aimed to go from Yoshirou's right hip across to his left shoulder. Afterwards, Metabee would place the sword in position for his next attack and wielded it using both hands to put more force behind it. The next attack would be a horizontal swing going from right to left aimed at just below the start of the ribcage followed by a hilt strike aimed at the neck.

    Yoshirou launches an arc of lightning at his opponent, in the form of a kido, expecting it to be dodged by the Commander but certainly not so easily and from this close of range. He thought that Meta would be more pressured by the up close attack and forced to use shunpo, as he did. But the Commander kept his cool in the face of danger, simply rolling to the right avoiding the attack completely. Yoshirou continued to press his opponent launching a quick draw attack from his previously sheathed blade, causing the air to rush forward fast enough that it was able to cut hierro. Taking one of these attacks at this close range could lead to uncertainty but two would certainly leave a mark changing the pace of the fight in his favor. With the high grounds Yoshirou watches the attacks smash into the ocean below. The force created a wave that washed up the island’s shore stopping just a few feet from where Metabee now stood. “You slippery son of a gun. That new ability of yours will give any opponent of yours trouble. It makes me happy that this is just a spar,” he says but the distance is to great between them for anyone other than himself to hear. As an experienced Zanjutsu Master Yoshirou could learn his opponents moves by watching or fighting them. After there last spar Yoshi was sure that he knew, for the most part, what style Metabee preferred and what some of his tendencies were, but… If they learned new skills and abilities that greatly change their fighting style then all that was thrown out the window and you would have to relearn the way the opponent moved. With Metabee’s warp ability and multi blade control for Yoshirou it was almost like fighting a new opponent for the first time. With such great distance between them Yoshirou sheathes his left Zanpakuto. For Yoshirou switching back and forth between sword styles was mere child’s play as it has been a part of his tactics for such along time it has become second nature to him. He did so for two reasons, first, so that he can capitalize on the current situation and not be bound to a single sword style. Second was so that his moves never became to predictable or readable further keeping his opponents off guard and constantly guessing. Metabee recalls both the sword that he warped to as well as the unseen one that found its way into the ocean. Once he had all four, of his created, swords by his side he began to launch the next wave of attacks. Again he charged in at Yoshirou but this time Meta launched all four of the floating swords. Unlike the first time all four had a blue glow to them. Yoshi quickly deduced that they were some how enhanced as this was the most logical conclusion. Normally he would guess that they were augmented using Meta’s spiritual energy but the color was different. Metabee’s energy was a shade of dark purple yet the swords were coated in a blue color. Looking downward at both the incoming swords and Metabee, Yoshirou lifts his left hand with his palm facing outwards. “Shakkaho,” he says, repeating the name of a very common kido, endowing it with more spiritual energy. It was widely taught at the Academy and almost everyone that used kido had this Hado in their arsenal. One reason was because it was a mid level kido that could be fired either as a red orb or a beam, with varying sizes, at minimal energy consumption. He wasn’t sure if he could destroy the blades or not especially if their durability was the stat being enhanced. At the very least he hope to force them back down to the ground below, as well as catch Metabee in the kido, as he notice him following behind it; although not too close. Befitting the name of “Red Flame Cannon” a beam of energy, a few feet larger than Yoshi was, surges forth colliding with the swords and possibly the Commander. Instantly upon contact with the swords they all exploded. Unbeknownst to Yoshirou the swords were imbued with Sokatsui turning them into makeshift bombs that explode on contact. With them all simultaneously exploding the blast was four times more powerful than normal. This caused Yoshirou to be caught up in the blast and although part of the force was redirected in the opposite direction, thanks to the Sokatsui, it still had enough force to repel and damage him. Being an explosion the blast wave was omni-directional so there was a chance Meta too would be caught up in it, the Shakkaho or perhaps both. Using his ability over gravitons to grant flight Yoshirou regained his footing quicker that way and remained vigilant of his target although his ears were still ringing from the unsuspecting blast. The bottom of his outfit was mostly burnt off from the explosion revealing a few reddish burn marks on the front of both shins and his left thigh as well as the bottom of both feet. On the ground these new wounds would surely slow him down a bit but in the air his movements remained unhindered. If the Commander managed to avoid the blast and was still able to continue his initial attack, Yoshirou would have little time to assess his wounds before Meta was upon him with is Zanpakuto cloaked in electric energy. Knowing that blocking that attack with his sword will result in an all to familiar and unpleasant feeling Yoshi once again relies on kido. “Seki,” he shouted in the nick of time thrusting is left hand out. Once again he called out the kido’s name giving it more power than without. With the two attacks colliding Metabee would instantly be repelled, roughly ten yards, due to the kido’s effect, putting him out of range for the final attack to Yoshi’s thigh. The burning tingly sensation was still fresh on the Noble’s mind; even so this was no time lower ones guard to check their wounds. Besides being a veteran Captain class Shinigami this would not be his first time he would have to fight through injuries nor the damage the worse he's ever received. “I’m not going to win this fight with kido alone. I need to press the battle and force Metabee into close range combat using what I’m actually superior at, Zanjutsu” he thinks as he begins to charge in this time. Yoshi continued to use his flight ability as it gave him the mobility advantage in the air. Quickly closing the ten yards that separates them Yoshirou shouts, “Byakurai,” but this was simply a diversion, as he did not cast a kido at all. Instead he swung down diagonally with his Zanpakuto from his right to left pulling his Zanpakuto back to his side at the end of the swing. Immediately Yoshi followed through with a quick thrust, aimed for the midsection that would be harder to block than a slash. The initial slash was meant to draw Meta’s guard creating an opening for the second attack. If Metabee’s body were pierced then Yoshirou would rip his sword out to the right creating a bigger wound, and return it to his guard. Again this was a simulation so there was no need to worry about the after effect to the body, it was a kill or be killed situation. With each attack Yoshi manipulated the gravity, which allowed him to greatly increase the force of the attack without relying on the clumsiness of using brute force. Precision and grace are the more important aspects of Zanjutsu at least to Yoshirou. If Metabee was caught up in the Shakkaho, enlarged Sokatsui explosion, or both then Yoshirou's coarse of actions would be different. As they both are repelled by the explosion the distance between them would once again increase. Like before Yoshi uses the ability of flight via his manipulation of gravitons to regain his composure. The bottom of his clothing is still slightly burnt away revealing a few burn marks that freshly stung. Ignoring the pain, Yoshirou pulls his right Zanpakuto to his left side preparing to launch long-range attack while eyeing Metabee’s new location. His ears had just stopped ringing and the smell of burnt cloths was still fresh in the air but he wouldn’t let this chance pass him by. Meta currently had only his Zanpakuto with no spare swords to warp to making him rely on other means. Yoshirou was without a doubt starting to get frustrated that he has relied so heavily on Kido already despite wanting to be a Zanjutsu Grandmaster. It didn’t change the fact that the distance was currently too great for a mere sword attack. Having to rely yet again on Kido Yoshi chooses to incorporate his Zanpakuto into the attack. “Zangerin,” he says generating a large amount of energy from his sword and blasting it outwards horizontally with a sharp swing of his blade. Yoshirou followed behind the kido which had a since of familiarity about it as this kido had a lot of history with the Kyoraku Clan. Many members favored it as a long range Kido attack specifically because the blade was used in the process. If Metabee was unable to dodge and had to block the attack, Yoshirou would follow immediately behind it with a powerful thrust to the midsection with his Zanpakuto. Like before the initial attack was meant to draw Meta’s guard and create a momentary gap for the second attack. If the attack landed Yoshirou would again rip it out from the right, increasing the damage that was done but by no means did he expect it to end the fight. His adversary was the Kido Commander so he was expecting this to be a long, tough, hard fought battle. But as Yoshirou often says, “There is no strength gained without struggle.” If Metabee were able to dodge the Zangerin then Yoshirou would attempt to launch a surprise attack by leaping out from behind the kido and slicing downward with his Zanpakuto. Again the strike would have its weight manipulated increasing the force behind it. But unlike the previous attacks if it connected, with either Metabee’s body or his Zanpakuto then they too would feel an increase in weight as long as contact was maintained. This would either significantly decrease Meta’s mobility while being slashed or force Meta’s blade into himself, being cut by it and Yoshirou’s Zanpakuto simultaneously. Either way Yoshirou would then retract his sword holding it vertically on guard.
