  1. 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.
  2. 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.'
  3. 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.
  4. Metabee didn't have to wait long for Yoshirou to appear in the room and just like him he needed a moment for his eyes to adjust to the brightness. As soon as he was done the Noble approached him and discussed the fight,'Indeed, it was a good fight. It feels good to be able to let loose since I don't get to do that very often. I'm sure you would have won either way. Not getting cut by your Zanpakuto while in close quarters combat is a truly hard task.' Yoshirou then commented about how real everything felt to which he nodded,'It feels just like real life. Maybe the more effects you add the more you start to feel the difference that this is a simulation but I didn't feel any different.' The Captain then stretched out,'So, what next? It was fun but I think dying once is enough for me for today.'
  5. 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.
  6. 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:
  7. 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:
  8. 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.

  9. After Metabee released his spiritual pressure Yoshirou did so too. It was the second time he has seen him do it but it still impressed him. Since the Noble wielded the power to manipulate gravity his spiritual pressure resembled something close to a black hole. Just with this little show alone, they both revealed the true nature of their Zanpakuto's yet there was still so much that they didn't know about the others. Being the only ones in this space they also didn't have to worry about their spiritual pressure being too much for others around them to handle. They could ask for nothing more. The fight then began and Metabee made the first move by launching his swords. As usual, Yoshirou underestimated them which did sadden him a little. A blacksmith wanted only for his works to be appreciated and to be put to good use. Obivously, the created swords didn't have the abilities of a Zanpakuto but that didn't change the fact that they were still of top quality. If given to academy students, they probably wouldn't notice unless the sword would get damaged as only Metabee would be able to fix it. Yoshirou blocked both of the swords launched at him making them fall down to the bottom of the area but the third one served its purpose. He managed to get behind his opponent but since the Noble has seen this technique already he expected it and their swords clashed. He grinned at the comment that was made,'If a simple warp was all it would take to kill you I would be very bored. And disappointed.' He simply used the technique as a faster means of travel and to get at the opponent's weak spots as the technique was not very high on offensive capability. The Captain followed his first attack with a horizontal slash which Yoshirou dodged by stepping away and as soon as he did so he launched a Byakurai which seemed to be one of his favourite Kido's. Metabee dodge rolled to the right to avoid the attack while his opponent got even further and higher by using Shunpo. Two swords were still at his side. One was still hovering above him while the other was in his left hand. Yoshirou then unsheathed his second Zanpakuto at an incredible speed that he was barely able to follow and launched two attacks at him with also a tremendous force behind them. Taking it head on would be a bad idea so he decided to warp to the sword on the island while making the one in the ocean come to him at the same time. The one disadvantage Yoshirou had was he would never know which sword Metabee would warp to. The Captain looked up at his opponent who was now even further away from him. It would take him a few seconds to cross all that distance so they would both have to resort to long ranged attacks. He leapt up to begin closing the distance with all four swords following him. Doing this made him a far too easy target so Metabee infused all four of his swords with a Sokatsui giving them a blue aura and launched them at his opponent. If Yoshirou was to destroy them near himself then naturally they would explode and harm him in the blast but if he didn't destroy them near him Metabee would gain a smokescreen. If the swords were destroyed near Yoshirou then he would use this as a chance to speed up and close the distance between them or if a smokescreen was created for him then Metabee would begin Shunpoing in a zigzag motion to reach the Noble. Once in reach the Captain would imbue his Zanpakuto with Tsuruzi Raiden and swing at Yoshirou's chest while at the same time he would create a dagger in his left hand and attempt to stab him in the right thigh. In the unlikely event that his four swords were not destroyed Metabee would direct them at Yoshirou while he was attacking him to try and stab him in the back though he would dispel the Sokatsui. This was a battle to the death but he would rather not having it end by making his friend die by being blown into pieces. Thanks to the strategy of using his swords Yoshirou didn't have any angle where he was guaranteed safety, well apart from one which both of them would never aim at due to being male, but this would end if the Noble was to release his Shikai. That would be the point the fight would become harder for him due to Metabee's energy based abilites but as proven before it was not impossible to hit him with them.
  10. To his comment about mind reading Yoshirou answered that it doesn't but it would be a good military use,'Well, lets hope that it doesn't become such a use. Going into someones mind would give people too much power. It would definitely be abused and would assist in total world domination.' Once he told Yoshirou the rules that he wanted, the Noble said that this time he would have like to use their Bankai's to which he chuckled,'Even in your Shikai, with one stab it would be over so you want me to give you even more of an advantage? We can kill each other well without using it. Besides, my Zanpakuto told me this once:'Shikai,Bankai it doesn't matter what you use as long as you don't have the skills.'' The Noble did accept his conditions though so everything was ready. Metabee nodded to Yoshirou's guidance and sat himself in the chair. He tried to get himself comfortable since technically he won't be using his body for a while. It didn't take long for a message to pop up on his monitor so he accepted it which made a arm with a scanner come out and began scanning him. Like Yoshirou said this required no physical contact of any kind. The only thing that happened was a light shined on his body from top to bottom. It was easy on the eyes so it wasn't really a nuisance either. This process very quick which surprised him if that was enough to be able to know everything about him. Another message then popped up telling him to close his eyes which he did. When he opened them again he was in a completely different place. There was no pain or anything that was required for him to come here. It was much like the sensation of when one goes into their inner world. The only exception was that his body felt a bit weird as if it wasn't his. He looked at his right hand and closed it into a fist a few times. Everything was where it should be so that must have meant it was successful. He looked around the area to get to know his surroundings. It didn't look like any place in the real world or it might have been if you don't include the raging winds serving as a boundary. There was plenty of space for them to fight but when he looked down it was mostly water with only one island. Even though this was a virtual world they probably wouldn't be able to breathe underwater so that meant it would be an aerial battle. He preferred having some solid footing under his feet but it didn't make much difference. To skilled Shinigami even the mid air was like the ground. Yoshirou then approached him and asked him his thoughts. The Captain smiled,'I'm impressed. The type on environments you could make with this would result in unlimited entertainement and recreation. Can't go on holidays? Just use this. Such a neat invention.' The Noble then told him that the rules are set and that if they touch the boundary then it will kill them. Good way to give him ideas. He was then asked if he had any questions,'Just one. You promise you won't cry if you lose?' He said so with a grin. Obviously, this didn't need answering so they both backed away and prepared for the fight. Some music for the battle : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqXzr1FijmY Metabee increased his spiritual pressure making it visible and made it take the shape of a dragon. Yoshirou was showing off so why couldn't he? He smiled at his opponent. From his spiritual pressure should sense an evil 'presence' or something ominous. Ever since the destruction of the barracks, his spiritual pressure has been slightly changing quality to a darker one. The colour was still the same but it just had a different feeling. In their last fight Yoshirou probably wouldn't have sensed it but since that time it became slightly more noticeable. He unsheathed his Zanpakuto for battle. Yoshirou didn't like him using his created swords so this time he would give him the pleasure of starting with his Zanpakuto. However, he created four longswords that were slightly above head level. They all pointed towards his enemy. He never did specify that he was only limited to creating things in his hands it was just that doing it anywhere else took a bit of practice. This time he wasn't going to pull out his best swords from the start. These four swords were ready at his command. If he was to move they would follow along and adjust themselves according to his movement. Seeing that Yoshirou was also ready, he decided to make the first move. It didn't really matter who started as long as they weren't standing around waiting for the other to start. Metabee ran towards Yoshirou to close the distance and when he was about halfway there he would launch three swords at Yoshirou. However, the third one had a slight delay and would go past Yoshirou. The first two were meant to serve as a distraction, ideally he wanted them to be blocked, but if they were destroyed it didn't matter as long as the third went by. The third sword he would use to warp to behind his opponent. Once he was behind him the Captain would swing at him with his Zanpakuto in a diagonal manner aiming from Yoshirou's left shoulder to the bottom of his ribcage on the right side. This would be followed up with a horizontal swing from the sword in his left hand in a backward grip,the one he used to warp with, aiming at the level of his kidneys. He expected the Noble to turn around when he made his attack so these attacks to his front side would do more damage than to his back. Knowing Yoshirou, this strategy might not work. If Metabee doesn't manage to warp then, when close enough to his opponent, he would use the remaining sword as a boost for his feet in order to do a somersault to get behind Yoshirou and then would leap at him. The sword, after serving as a boost, would go to Meta's left hand allowing him to do a cross slash aimed at the torso/upper back depending on the way the Noble was facing. This would be followed up with a roundhouse kick strengthed with spirit energy which if successful would return him to a stance where he would be more able to defend himself.
  11. As they walked it was already dark but the whole mansion and its paths were lit up so seeing was no problem. The moon was high in the middle of the sky pleasantly glowing and lighting it up. Even when everything was dark there would always be the smallest ray of light. To his comment about the research Yoshirou said that he agreed with him but he wouldn't stop them,'I see. The inventions are certainly useful but somethings should never be touched or researched. Leaving them be would be better for the people involved. I'm glad we agree on that.' When the discussion turned to other races joining as one the Noble agreed with him that other races shouldn't enter here. It was understandable and if one day all races were to unite together it would definitely be an amazing feat. Most likely some sort of battle against the 'final boss'. However, if they were ever to unite where would it be? Seiretei was meant for Shinigami, Hueco Mundo for Hollows, Silbern for Quincies and the human world for humans and fullbringers. There was no single place where they could come together. That's why at this rate it looked like it would never happen. Perhaps that was the right order of things. That's the nature of this world. Eventually, they reached the room which had a few people in it but due to the nature of this training that didn't make a difference. They headed to the rooms that were unoccupied on either side as to give them more privacy while Yoshirou further explained how this thing works. Literally anything could be possible with this technology. Any kind of rules could be set to suit the combatants. They could fight to their hearts content and go away uninjured. It was a paradise for those who loved fighting. He really liked the idea. Yoshirou entered one of the rooms and showed him the chair and assured him it is comfortable and that no external sources needed to be inserted into your body to be used. All that was needed scanned in order to use it,'I hope this thing doesn't enter your mind or try to read your thoughts/memories. Some things are better not shown to the world...' He said so as a joke. He had no other questions and would figure it out as they went so now it was time for the rules,'Well first, I would like to get used to it so maybe lets just have a normal death match. Then next time we can spice it up. Even a normal death match will be full of excitement. However, I still think we should refrain from using our Bankai.'
  12. After Metabee responded about the jumping out of the balcony Yoshirou smiled to his comment and said it was more spontaneous than suicidal to which he nodded,'Yea, sure lets go along with that.' It wasn't a big deal or anything as they both had abilities to deal with that height and if they really needed to they could simply walk in the air. They were no ordinary humans so it wasn't a threat to them and he was just trying to tease Yoshirou but at this point the joke was getting a bit boring so he said nothing more. The Noble then assured him that they know how to party and that if he broke something then he would have to pay for it,'I'll be looking forward to you proving me wrong then.' When they left the room Yoshirou answered his question about the training room in some detail which got him very interested in the idea but at the same time he didn't see it as something necessary,'That's quite an interesting research but it doesn't seem like it would be very valid. Each persons inner world is different due to our different personalities and natures. Being able to replicate that or project it onto our world would be quite an impressive feat but at the same time I feel like it wouldn't achieve much. Even if the environment changes then the other person could quickly get used to it so the advantage would only be slight. As for the communication with your Spirits then isn't that a bit wrong? You can't force your Spirit to talk with you and the point is for you to be ready to wield thier power. If Shinigami wield their powers when they aren't ready they will just damage their body. I wouldn't like the idea of using external factors to fasten this process. Strenghtening the bond should be done naturally and over time. My Spirits aren't easy to get along with but it turned out just fine. At least you got good training equipment out of it. I like the idea of spicing up the training without actually having to put in so much effort for me to use it for an hour or so.' Yoshirou then started answering the question about the previous leaders by telling him a bit more about Aliza and Alvito. It made sense as they never talked about their past. He only knew the 'present' them. That wasn't exactly a bad thing yet knowing each others past was a good way to strengthen bonds. However, since they were Shinigami many of them didn't have a good and happy past so that also explained it why very few talked about it. The Noble continued by talking about Kaycee and Alvito and how they were loved and very opened minded,'Hmm, I wouldn't mind such an idea if everyone got along together towards a single goal. However, letting other races into Seiretei isn't something I would agree on. Every race has their own turf and stepping in it is essentially a declaration of war.' While they were talking time passed quickly and they soon arrived. Surprisingly, the room didn't look anything like a place you would train in but a normal room. The main focus of the room seemed to be the large amount of smaller rooms in it which contained a chair each. The chairs seemed very advanced in technology. Maybe they were the first of its kind too as he has never seen or heard of such a thing in the human world. On further inspection there was a lot of monitors around the room and seats were provided though these ones were ordinary chairs. He was definitely impressed by the technology and was eager to try it out.
  13. Using the fact that they both jumped out of the window Yoshirou also made a joke that he isn't innocent either to which he chuckled,'Nah don't put me in the same boat as you. I was feeling a bit hot so I wanted to feel the breeze better. Nothing can beat the refreshing feeling of falling down.' Since they already achieved that then he wondered what they would do next time to change it up. It would certainly keep things interesting but at the same time the guards probably wouldn't like it so they would have to put more thought into it. With the mood being back to normal Yoshirou responded to his joke about visiting,'Well, going back and forth would be a waste of time and energy. If it was something simpler I probably wouldn't need to stay over but making this Kido will take some time so I might as well. There is no better opportunity than this to get to know the area. I need to know the area before I conquer it, you know. Besides, in the future we still need to have that party to celebrate the rebuilding of our squads so I need to make sure your members know how to party. I appreciate you having me over. I'll try not to break anything. The keyword being try.' Once he told the Noble that he was originally assigned to the 8th squad he seemed to think about something but didn't say anything so it probably wasn't important. Most likely Metabee wouldn't know the answer anyway as his time in the squads was short and at the time they didn't really achieve anything big. Surprisingly, he hasn't heard much about them in general. The Soul Society was now much more peaceful so it probably had something to do with that but even in the past he didn't know much about the Captain's. Maybe it was a good thing that they weren't high publicity people. Yoshirou was happy that he accepted to train with him and joked that no one will get seriously injured,'That depends. If you punch me in the stomach I'll make sure to cut off that arm.' He said so with a grin and then they stacked up the plates and the cups so that they were ready to go. The Noble started leading the way as they went down a familliar route,'So what is this training room like? I'm assuming it's something that normal squads don't have. If you impress me I'll be sure to use it.' He waited for a response from Yoshirou who seemed to want him to now lead the conversation,'Returning to the topic of the Kyoraku Clan, how close were you to the previous leaders? What were they like? Was their style similar to yours? I never really followed any of the Noble Clans so I don't know much about who their leaders were or anything. At least in the Gotei you know some Captains if only by name but you don't really hear much about the Clans. It might be that they don't talk about it come to think of it just like Alvito and Aliza never told me they were part of the Clan.' He was curious to know as Yoshirou knew them but when it came to the Kido Corps Metabee never heard about any previous Captains before Alvito. The records of that were probably burned or didn't exist in the first place but the Kido Corps was also one of the squads you don't hear much about so maybe it made sense.
  14. While he was talking Yoshirou listened carefully not saying a thing meaning that his role as Adviser was quite successful so far. Once he was done speaking Yoshirou answered with a smile that he was not suicidal or not expecting to die anytime soon. He too answered this with a teasing smile,''I'm not suicidal' says the man that jumped out of a window a few hours ago.' Yoshirou then paused to finish his drink and continued to answer the second part of his statement and this time it got really sad quick as the Noble talked more about what he like before the Clan got destroyed. He clearly blamed himself for what happened and probably would continue to do so forever. He didn't mean for the conversation to go down this path and the answer that he was given was not exactly what he wanted to hear. Metabee understood the point that Yoshirou was making and also felt the same but he thought it wasn't enough. A good trait to have was to be able to make oneself happy without any additonal help because how would he be happy if those people were gone? Relying heavily on someone was not a good thing. As for the part about the destruction of the Clan then he understood that. If it was Yoshirou then he would have definitely made a difference and maybe the Clan wouldn't have been destroyed. Yet, it was an unavoidable fate that had to happen. They can't be there 24/7 because they have their own lives too and closing oneself in the same four walls forever was definitely not a healthy things for the mind. In his case, when the Kido Corps was getting destroyed he did arrive but did not change much. Maybe his presence did help to save the remaining members but in the end the barracks were destroyed like they were supposed to be. Nothing he would say would make a difference so he decided not to say anything but he understood Yoshirou better than anyone and sometimes words were not needed to express that. The Noble then seemed to return to normal and the conversation continued on with Yoshirou responding to his statement about security. To his answer he simply nodded as there was nothing he could add. It was true that a lot of the times people didn't realise what they were like until someone else told them that what they are doing is wrong. The Noble then answered his statement about tomorrow dinner,'If I go beyond the gates and then come back will that count as a new visit?' He said so jokingly and finished up on his dessert before he started drinking his tea. Yoshirou then talked about knowledge and how amazing it is,'Knowledge can be more important than strength most times. Having a good strategy or strategist can be the deciding factor for victory. I was originally assigned to the 8th squad.' With both of them having finished dinner Yoshirour asked him what he wanted to do after dinner but he had no special plans so he decided to go along with his idea of training. Besides, he was interested what Yoshirou meant by some action,'Alright, we can train. I just love getting beaten right after dinner.' He said so jokingly and was ready to head out whenever the Noble wanted to.
  15. After he made his comment about relationships and duty it seemed that Yoshirou got a bit more serious and explained the point he was making. He said that everyone does it out of love and that he would do anything to be able to protect his Clan. That was a much better response that he wanted to hear. Worthy of someone he would serve as Adviser. The Noble asked him if he felt similarly about the matter and he did but at the same not completely though he understood it,'If you want to raise the Clan then you can't be disposable. I'm afraid there is not much you can achieve once you are dead. Besides, you keep saying I must do this for the Clan, the Clan this and that but where do you come in all of this? It's natural to want to make your squad or Clan improve and make them happy and stuff but who will make you happy? None of your members can live your life for you. Only you can. Do you want your last thoughts to be 'I wish I did more of this or this'? You need to enjoy life more and you can't do that by always being chained down by formalities or duties.That's why I think all of you need to become more carefree and try to enjoy yourself more. However, if you truly think that everyone is happy this way and nothing needs to change then thats fine too. We can only do what we believe is right.' Yoshirou then answered his point about justice which he couldn't answer as he too agreed with this. What was right or wrong would always be subjective and different from person to person. However, that was not fully true because most laws are formed because of the moral values of a community or society. That means that to function properly as a community people had to agree to some extent on what was right and what was wrong. Otherwise, if everyone did as they pleased then the world would be in total chaos and humanity would probably be already dead. Metabee then listened as the Noble responded to his comment about his idea,'I don't doubt their skill or anything but I'm just being realistic. All I'm saying is that in case of a big threat it falls down to us and not the guards. I'm sure the guards can handle small to medium threats so it is right for you to have security but there is a point when it become a bit too much. We call that being paranoid. They shouldn't try to do everything themselves either because if they try to fight battles that are beyond them then they will die. If that happens it will no longer be trying to protect someone but a waste of a life. I guess what I'm trying to say is don't try to guard every room as that is a waste of the guards skills and that quality over quanity may be a better approach.' The talks were getting more and more serious but that was unavoidable. For people in their positions it was natural to discuss topics and like this and when it came down to it Metabee definitely preferred this to silence. Then they started eating their desserts which caused a moment of silence but Yoshirou was the first to speak,'I agree. I bet you won't be able to fall asleep from similar expectations for tomorrows menu.' The Noble then gave him a fact about the dessert he was eating. It wasn't something he knew but it was still interesting as he never saw how a creme brulee was made. Even though it the shell was just sugar it tasted much better than the sugary products of the human world like birthday cakes which also had a shell of sugar but they were so sweet that it made it unedible. Yoshirou then asked him a question on why he chose to join the Kido Corps even though he was good with a sword. It wasn't something he told him before so it was normal for him to be curious,'The Kido Corps wasn't the first squad that I joined. I was always average with Kido but I only started mastering it after I joined the Kido Corps. Before that I usually only relied on my sword. I spent little time in my previous squads so I didn't really know anyone in there but a transfer is a transfer so there was little nothing I could do about it. Then I finally found my place in the Kido Corps and even then for a long time it took me to master Kido. I only started mastering it after I became Captain and had access to more knowledge. That's why Kido is secondary to me and my sword will always be first.'
