Bleach Volume 64 ReviewOctober 6, 2015
Bleach Volume 64 consists almost entirely of an intense battle between 11th Division Captain Kenpachi Zaraki and Sternritter “V” Gremmy Thoumeoux. The main cast of the series is completely absent in this volume, giving Kenpachi a chance to shine in the spotlight and show just how utterly badass he really is.
Gremmy has the power to conjure anything he can imagine in the physical realm, a trait not unlike that of DC Comics’ Green Lantern. Here we see Gremmy summoning guns, missiles, blades, rocks, giant hands and even a meteor in attempt to take down the legendary Kenpachi. He’s even able to transport Kenpachi into space just using his mind.
How can Kenpachi defeat such power when his gigantic sword is seemingly no use? It’s an intriguing question that had me invested until the very end of the battle. This conflict between the power of the mind and physical strength made for a hell of an encounter.
Right at the very end of Bleach Volume 64 is a cliffhanger featuring an ensuing battle with four female Quincies with some very interesting abilities. They arrive on the scene with only a scant few pages left in the volume, but they get to show off their abilities and get the reader interested in the next Bleach chapter.
If you’re a fan of action, this volume has it in spades – there isn’t a whole lot of story, and there is no breathing room at all between Kenpachi’s battle with Gremmy and the arrival of the female Quincies. But those who appreciate a good fight will definitely enjoy Bleach Volume 64.
