To Yoshirou’s initial tease Metabee replied with an easy going tone as usual. “Don’t lump us together I was only hot.” Although he said slightly more, that was the jest of it, which Yoshirou couldn't help but smile. It was a load of BS of course. They had just exited Yoshi’s room and were standing on the balcony for less than a minutes at most before they both jumped; meaning he had no time to get hot, certainly not hot enough to leap off the top of a building.

 

“Ok, I’ll remember that next time…” Yoshirou says still smiling, joking with his friend. “But I like to think of it as being more spontaneous than suicidal. At least that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.”

 

Next they talked about visiting and the new technique they were inventing; Metabee even mentioned that he needed to make sure the Kyoraku knew how to party. “Your very welcome I’m sure you would do the same for me. And just because were Nobles don't think we can't party with the best of them. As far as conquering this place I hope it meets and beats your expectations but beware. If you break it you by it,” Yoshirou teases. Although it would be understandable for Yoshi to be upset if something broke, if it was done without ill intent then it was only a trivial matter. No sense in getting upset over materialistic things breaking. For a Noble especially in the higher ups this was not the normal thought process so other Nobles thought him inferior for this way of thinking.

 

The pair then agrees to train but teases each other in the process. “Even if that was the case there would be no need to worry. You’ll see what I’m talking about.” Yoshirou then took the lead and headed towards their destination. Along the way Metabee asked a couple questions of Yoshirou. Although he was waiting to show Meta, since he asked about it he went ahead and explained a little. “Your right no one else has something like this but it certainly could be a game changer.” As they walked they passed familiar scenery, which hopefully looked familiar to Meta. “The Kyoraku research and development department has long studied the inner world and its intricacies attempting to better understand the way it works. The initial goal was purely knowledge so that we could better communicate with our inner spirits whether it was the Zanpakuto or Hollow. Veterans could easily strengthen their bonds and ties or rookies could attain the name of their Zanpakuto or perhaps come to an agreement with their inner Hollow sooner. Well fast forwarding to the present, making along story short, we have yet to perfectly replicate the inner world as it changes vastly from person to person. With that said we have still gained a tremendous amount of knowledge some of which we have been putting to use and creating the perfect training equipment. We have created a device that you sit in with a headpiece. Once ready your body and mind will be scanned getting a precise reading of you. You will then be safely projected into a simulated world, which can be carefully designed all the way down to the rules. Being a simulation the stage can be as small or as large as desired but that’s not even the best part. Aside from the customizable rules the coolest part is that you can get experience that you only get in a life or death situation. Being a simulated reality, neither death nor injury is permanent although you will feel every bit of the pain, unless that part is turned down or off.“

 

That was the jest of it for now. Yoshi would explain more once they got there so that Meta wouldn’t be overwhelmed by too much info at once. As for Metabee’s second question Yoshirou paused for a second, thinking about where to start. “That doesn’t surprise me. Clans can be pretty secretive especially Noble ones. Aliza probably never mentioned it because it wasn’t her style. Most people treat you different knowing that you are from a clan. She was never the person to deny where she’s from but would never openly discuss or brag about it either. As for Alvito when he left he left no longer a Kyoraku. Talking about it would only be talking about the past and he was a man that lived for the future,” he says drawing closer and closer to their destination. The large building containing the pool and training facilities was now visible though it was still a ways off.

 

“I was never to close to any of the other Heads though I did know them fairly well. Kaycee and Alvito were married and were the Heads for the longest amount of time since I’ve been alive. At first Kaycee was the only head but they were both loved so much that, while not officially, the title was shared between them both. They were both very open minded people and there was even a point where they almost accepted members from the outside. This invitation would have included Hollows and Quincys, an idea I could never get behind.” As they proceeded on their evening stroll any passing guards paid their respects and continued on as the did not want to interrupt the pairs conversation. “Besides having the Kyoraku’s best interest at heart none of us really share the same style. That’s simply because the times are always different with different pros and cons for the Head to deal with. Take my situation for example. Not many before me had to deal with some of the things I have. I want to bring the clan into the modern age without losing all of its heritage or traditions.”

 

The building was now just up ahead following Yoshirou’s lengthy answers. Metabee would have just a few moments to respond before they entered the door leading to the training side of the facilities. As they drew within range of the sliding glass doors they automatically opened up. Unlike most training areas this one would be vastly different once they entered. Instead of seeing a huge open area to train in, there were multiple small rooms side by side without doors. They sort of resembled cubicles but slightly bigger and instead of a desk there was unique looking high-tech chair with no exposed wires. There was also a monitor in each room used for viewing and spectating the participants, furthermore there were larger monitors placed throughout with good seating around it so that more may watch and observe. With over fifty stalls and seating for around two hundred, and a small kitchen the facility was impressive in size.

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.

It was almost 8:30 and the sun had all but disappeared. Even so the grounds were sufficiently lit by lamppost or other light fixtures that were attached to various buildings. On top of that the moon was out in full force; so much so it felt a little creepy, like werewolves would be out on the prowl tonight. Well no matter but one thing was for sure, the two conversing would have no problems with visibility, which Yoshirou was thankful for, as it would help Metabee familiarize himself with the area.

 

Metabee gave his initial thoughts on some of the research the Kyoraku have been conducting. “Some times what something will achieved is revealed as its being invented. Other times research is done simply to beat another clan or group to it or so that the knowledge isn't only possessed by the other side, whomever that be. I agree with most of the rest of what you said. My first thoughts were that’s cheating. Lmao. So I’m certainly not the one who authorized it but neither have I stopped it. Its beginnings go back many, many Heads so they've been at it along time. My honest opinion on it though… I hope they never succeed but instead continued to find secondary features or other useful inventions like the Virtual Training Simulator (VTS),” replies Yoshirou.

 

The discussion then moves onto a little history about various clan members and previous Heads. Yoshirou happily answered the questions about the Kyoraku Clan. As the current Head and having Kyoraku as his surname there was little hiding the fact he belong to the clan and with it only being Metabee he needn’t worry about divulging to much info, that might in returned be used against them. Meta then responds to opening the doors of the clan to other races. The response was pleasing to Yoshirou as he shared the Commanders thoughts. It was why he was so against it back then and still felt the same to this date.

 

“I obviously have no problem with taking in other Shinigami or Vizards as there is no difference between the two to me. But a pure Hollow or Quincy has no business calling this place Home. With that said I’m not against peace at all but that’s a different situation, entirely,” Yoshirou replies as they entered the building.

 

Yoshirou waves his arms in a voila motion like someone does when they are showing off a house or car. “Here it is,” he says as they take in a brief view of the room overall. It wasn’t to crowded, out of the numerous rooms only fourteen were taken and the spectators numbered less than thirty. But this was expect, with night quickly encroaching most were finishing up any last minute tasks so that they may soon get a well deserved nights sleep.

 

As expected everyone’s attention slowly started turning towards the pair once they were noticed. This was typically so unless approached Yoshirou paid it little attention. “Not that it will matter let’s go over here where no one seems to be at yet,” Yoshirou says pointing off to the right. As they made there way Yoshi further explained the VTS. “As I briefly mentioned the rules can be changed making it your typically training session, well almost,” he replies, as this technology was not typical... yet. “To many different type of training games or scenarios. For instance ones power levels could be left alone or adjusted so that the combatants are even, requiring one to rely more on skill and experience than simply strength alone. Or you could take it a step further and have one person have a handicap. The possibilities are vast. To me that’s what makes it so exciting. A different example would be say you; a Kido master could only use Zanjutsu, against me a Zanjutsu Master. And the same will go for me. I can only use Kido against the Kido Commander himself. As you see there’s not much it can’t do as far as training simulations go. You even grow and develop your power the same using the VTS.”

 

Arriving outside two unoccupied rooms Yoshirou enters one showing off the VTS chair up close. “As you see it’s pretty high tech and its very comfortable for extended uses. There’s no exposed wires nor prongs or needles that have to poke you. All you have to do is take a seat and program your session using the touch display device attached to the chair. From there you will be fully scanned by the onboard equipment and prompted to closer your eyes and enjoy as you arer projected into a virtual world,” he says giving Metabee the full details. “Let me know if you have any questions and when your ready I’ll let you have the honor of choosing for the first time. I wonder what will it be, a death match without the drawbacks of death or will you be creative on the first test drive and bend the rules to your will, lol?”

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.'

Since the pair agreed about the research then there was no point in elaborating on it any further. Instead things progress to the point where Yoshirou was explaining the VTS chair and a general idea of how the whole thing works. Honestly it sounded more like a high-tech video game than a training device, which was partially true as it in a lot of ways was similar to something like that.

 

Metabee then comments that he hopes it doesn’t enter your mind and read your memories or something of the sort. Yoshirou then stokes the bottom of his chin like someone does when then were on to something. “Don’t worry these units aren’t capable of such a feat… but you may have just stumbled upon a more strategic military use for it,” he says half joking half serious. “Mental note. Have the scientist look into using this thing has a mind probe for times of dire needs.” The usefulness of something like that was insane. Imagine no longer having to interrogate captives which more often than not, bore little to no fruit. You could even say that it would be a much more humane way of doing things than torturing victims for information. 

 

The Commander then informs Yoshi that the rest he can figure out after fiddling with it but for now a “regular” sparing session would suffice as it would give him a chance to get use to it. Besides that his only other suggestion was that they once again shouldn’t use their Bankai. “How ironic. I was just about to tell you I had no problem using them this time but its fine with me. As you previously granted my request I too will do the same now. Well if your ready just have a seat here,” Yoshirou said gesturing to the VTS chair. “I will use the one next door and set up the rules. You will receive an invitation to link and join me in a session. Simple accept and you will be scanned and uplinked.”

 

If Metabee had no further questions Yoshirou would quickly proceeded to the room right next door. He sat in the oddly comfortable chair and began fidgeting with the overhead monitor. Besides turning off Bankais the only other thing he needed to do was select a stage to battle at. “This is where I can show off part of what this bad boy can do,” he thinks to himself as he creates the stage and hits confirm.

 

Immediately a tiny scanner extends out from overhead and scans Yoshirou. The arm that the scanner is attached can pivot, in multiple directions, allowing one scanner to cover the whole body. First the scanner emits a red light, which is quickly followed up by a yellow, green and blue light. Four times the body is scanned getting a more precise reading each time creating a perfect reading of ones looks and appearance as well as spiritual pressure and Zanpakutos. This whole process took about five seconds and once completed he was prompted by an on screen notification to close his eyes and enjoy. Following the instructions Yoshirou closed his eyes preparing for a sparring session like none other.

 

Seamlessly and harmlessly Yoshirou opens his eyes finding himself, floating in the air, at the stage he created. For about ten square miles the scenery was beautiful and very serene. Below him was a vast body of water and part of a small island though only part of it was revealed. Covering the entire arena was a barrier created by powerful torrents of winds, clouds, and random bursts of lightning. The dirty grey clouds spun so fiercely that they were capable of ripping flesh from bone, even from the likes of Metabee and Yoshirou. The stage was set and Yoshirou had chosen the eye of a hurricane to spar in. If Metabee wasn’t impressed with this then his standards were far to high.

 

Once Yoshirou spotted Metabee he would close the gap getting within talking distance. “So what do you think? I went a little overboard with the stage selection just to show it off a little bit.” He then gave Meta time to respond before continuing on. “So the rules are simple. Our Bankai has been turned off and the stage is this eye of the hurricane. While the boundaries aren’t off limits if you touch them you will be severely injured if not instantly killed. Other than that is a normal fight to the death, which reminds me. Once someone dies we will both be transferred to an all white intermission/loading area, which we can decide on what to do next from there. Any questions?” If not Yoshirou would retreat a little ways away, preparing himself for battle. As this was a spar they would start at a distance and not in close quarters.

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 :P : 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.

As the friends prepared for battle the atmosphere drastically changed. Although the winds around them were raging out of control the area inside was at first calm. But with tensions rising, a gentle gust of wind stirs up, causing Yoshirou’s long hair to flutter in the wind. After reaching an appropriate distance away Yoshi turns and faces Metabee, a brief sense of déjà vu sweeps across him before brushing it off.

 

Unsheathing one of his Zanpakutos Yoshirou clears his mind, assuming a mobile fighting stance, and focuses on Metabee. With the unsheathing of his sword signaling that he was ready, Meta prepared himself as well; releasing his spiritual pressure, which took the shape of a dragon. “Impressive Metabee,” says Yoshirou though not loud enough for anyone but himself to hear. If you compared them using a power chart then Metabee would be closer to 560 while Yoshirou was somewhere around 540, so even Yoshirou could appreciate Meta's display in power. “But what’s with this feeling your giving off. Are you hiding an internal turmoil or conflict ? If so I’m always here for you. Well I should deal with the battle at hand but perhaps this has something to do with your Inner Hollow.”

 

Following suit Yoshirou too releases his spiritual pressure. An aura casted in the deepest darkest black outlined in blue oozed from Yoshirou’s body. The color did not represent an emotional state but was merely the look of his spiritual energy. Unlike Metabee’s it did not take on the shape of anything but from afar it would resemble a tear in the sky or irregular shaped black hole. The pair’s initial display of power was impressive to say the least and would force even experienced Lieutenant class fighters effortlessly to their knees.

 

Yoshi looks on as Meta draws his sword and creates four more hovering just above him. “I know I said your created swords wouldn’t be enough to defeat me but… perhaps I was wrong,” he thinks to himself smiling with excitement. While Yoshirou did not claim the title Kenpachi he was currently the most prolific swordsman within the Seireitei, a title that practically begged to belong to the Kyoraku Clan. While Meta could said to be not only the Kido Commander but the Grand Kido Chief, a title that represented the most powerful Kido user currently in existence, a title that is not a Kido Commander’s by default.

 

Wasting no further time Metabee begins his charge initiating the first attack. Yoshirou immediately spots the two incoming swords, which didn’t really concern him. With a pair, of powerful yet graceful, swings from his right hand he easily blocks both swords sending them sailing down below, still intact. The launched sword that was delayed was what caught Yoshi’s attention compounded with the fact that its aim was off. It was a mistake that the Commander wouldn’t make this early in the fight. Yoshirou smiles switching his grip to and inverted one and quickly spinning around following the well-placed sword Meta had launched. “Perhaps you should have lost the race in order to win the fight,” he said referencing his first encounter with this technique only hours ago. Had he not seen it prior to going into this battle he would have surely been caught off guard and this first match would be over already. This didn’t mean the skill would be ineffective against Yoshirou, it simply meant he wouldn’t be killed by it right from the start like he would have had he not lost to it once already today. 

 

Turning and spinning Yoshirou narrowly blocked Meta’s diagonal slash. The two swords clashed in a stalemate with enough force that sparks danced off into the breeze. Meta quickly followed with a horizontal slash, which had he been a lesser opponent Yoshirou would have simply caught it up in the stalemate of their other swords. This would have only been possible because of Yoshi’s inverted grip and the fact that both of Meta’s attacks originated from the same side. Even if it would have been a move with minimal effort and no wasted movement that a Master swordsmen could be proud of it was too risky to do against a Commander class opponent.

 

Instead Yoshirou disengages by leaping backwards, avoiding the strike altogether. Immediately with his free, left, hand Yoshi points where Metabee’s heart rests. This was a simulation so there was no need to hold back, death and injury lost its meaning while inside here. Speeding up the kido by silently casting it Yoshiro launches byakurai. Lightning erupts from his fingertips bursting forth at incredible speeds.

 

The easiest way besides directly blocking the attack would be for Meta to go to his right or Yoshi’s left, as that was the shortest distance to cross the body and get out the narrow attack’s path. Although Hado #4 was extremely powerful for being such a low level kido it was a piercing attack and had no range from side to side.

 

Yoshirou had no doubt that the Commander was capable of dodging this attack. Instead he attempted to anticipate his next moves. It was ironic though how they each used the others forte to start the match, perhaps they were trying to show that just because they greatly excelled at one that they weren’t to be underestimated in the other. Watching the movement of the floating swords as the kido was being launched Yoshirou remembered about the two swords he parried earlier. They were most likely still under Meta’s control and he could probably even teleport to them. “Tsk,” Yoshi replies disappointed that he didn’t take them more seriously and destroy them. With the battle now underway Yoshirou attempts to grasp the fight from multiple angles/views in his mind.

 

As soon as the kido was done firing Yoshirou did as he did in their last spar and took to the higher grounds using shunpo. He choose to ascend because it was the least likely direction Meta would dodge to as the Hado would cross more of his body increasing the chances of being hit. If Metabee maintained control over the two previous swords launched at him then they moved as he commanded them to, which was most likely the case. But if they were sent plummeting down below he would noticed one at the beach on the island and the other one nowhere in site meaning it was most likely in the ocean. Either way with the higher grounds Yoshi could better see Meta’s movements. Whether Meta had all the swords back at his side or if they were stuck down below Yoshirou would not let him dictate the entirety of this duel.

 

Yoshirou unsheathes his other Zanpakuto with his left hand at speeds that even some Shinigami couldn’t follow, using his mastery in laijutsu. Twice he launched an attack with enough force to bisect an unsuspecting Captain, before keeping both Zanpakutos unsheathe with a normal girb. If Meta was going to use so many swords it was best not to underestimate him so using both available Zanpakutos was the wisest coarse action. While Yoshirou wasn’t to far above Meta, at a diagonal angle, he was to far to be instantly overtaken. With his attacks launched and his focus sharp Yoshi observes the outcome and prepares for Metabee’s counter attack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Enso (means Circle) – Fires a blast of energy that upon contact encircles anything it touches and can stretch long enough to ensnare small groups at once. Most make the mistake of blocking the blast of energy, only to be trapped and encircled. Anything caught in its grip will be subdued by gravity, finding their bodies too heavily to move. This binding attack has the same power as a high level Bakudo. 

Enhanced Double Rirsu (means Release) – Fires a much large blast of energy, from his both Zanpakutos, that explodes upon contact dealing serious if not fatal damage. It either comes from the user, the energy absorbed by the swords or both.

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.

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.

 

Spoiler

Kyushu (means Absorb/Devour)– Taking on the form or singularities Yoshirou’s Zanpakutos can absorb and devour, breaking down all forms of energy and matter, adding it to his power and defense reserves. The special ability of this is not how much they can devour but how fast they can do so. A passive ability.

 

Kaju no Sekai (means Weighted Worlds) – The amount of gravity explodes upwards-multiplying many, many times over. The exact amount of force can be alter along with the range and duration, though it normally only last 2 seconds. Yoshirou has also been known to use this attack as a shield, deploying it around him, being at its epicenter. Any caught in it would find themselves severely slowed and weaker opponents unable to move at all.latest?cb=20111224161909

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.

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.

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.'

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 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.

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.
