This time, Roja wanted to verify a guess he had, although he did verify it before.
With a thought, The extraction began, This time the green attributes didn’t appear, there were blue and above.
The number of appearance of the golden attribute increased.
Finally, The extraction finished, A bright purple attribute turned into tiny stars and entered the soul sword.
the property bar showed:
Fifth stage: the perfect soul sword +0
ttributes: Attack +1200, Strength +400, Agility +400, Physical +400, Spirit +400
Special attribute: All things in the world, turn to ashes – sword attack has additional fire damage (Met the initial condition)
Special attribute: Senbonzakura Kageyoshi.
Special attribute: Getsuga Tensho – Can release an arc-shaped red energy attack.
Special attribute: Devouring- If an enemy is killed, Absorb part of their vitality and spirit power to heal oneself and replenish their consumed spiritual energy.
Seeing the new ability description, which didn’t belong to any Zanpakuto from Bleach, Roja took the soul sword into his hand while his eyes flashed.
This was a passive skill.
Roja always had a flaw, and that is the power consumption from almost all of his skills is too draining, Just like how he can’t maintain Ryujin Jakka or Senbonzakura Kageyoshi for a long time making him unable to fight a long battle.
And with this new passive, he will be healed and also regain some spiritual power as he beheads someone, it’s clear that this will cover this flaw.
Of course, this wasn’t the most important thing, The most important thing is… That Roja just wished for such ability so he got it.
“When I first got you in that soul space my will wasn’t firm enough so you couldn’t pass the next stage. After I got Honoo no Tsuki, My will got firmer so you evolved.”
“Because of Honoo no Tsuki, I wanted the power of fire, so I got Yamamoto’s power.”
“Because I lacked in power and wanted a stronger attack, I got Getsuga Tensho.”
“And when I wanted a shocking and beautiful attack, I got Senbonzakura Kageyoshi… And now I wanted a way to cover that one flow, and I got this Devouring passive.”
Roja looked at the sword in his hand, it seems like he was enlightened, he continued to say.
“I liked games in my past life, so you gave me a game-system…”
“In fact, everything was my thoughts, and this ability was not like a Zanpakuto’s ability it’s more like something else.”
Roja murmured while thinking about something else in his head.
This was something created in the soul society, and it had the ability to realize the desire in the host’s heart.
The only condition is the need to have the ability to fulfill the requirement, which will allow the host to grow into an even greater state, not in a single step, but gradually.
“But… You are the same but you are not the Hōgyoku.”
Thinking about this, Roja couldn’t help get confused, The soul sword gave him a weird feeling, On one hand, it was like a Zanpakuto, on the other hand, it felt like the Hōgyoku.
The Hōgyoku had the ability to protect its owner, it can make the host immortal, and his soul sword didn’t have this ability, Roja was injured many times and was never cured instantly, and if he died then there is no turning back.
Roja solved most of this mystery, Even the data, and the Attribute, they appeared because he wanted them and needed them, but from where did the soul sword arrive and what is it’s connection with the Hōgyoku.
“Did you… Hear me?”
Roja looked at the sword in his hand deeply and murmured.
At this time, From inside the soul sword, passed a weak idea like a candle fire in the wind that may extinguish any time.
After this weak thought passed to Roja’s mind, the soul sword seemed to fall asleep again, as if the fifth stage was too weak for it to wake up yet.
“Sen Maboroshi, This is your name?”
Roja felt the little weak consciousness fall asleep once again and couldn’t help but murmur.
It seems the soul sword really wasn’t the Hōgyoku, it was indeed a Zanpakuto, its name was Sen Maboroshi, But I don’t know why it has the same power as the Hōgyoku.
“It seems the Shikai is its permanent state, like Ichigo’s.”
“It’s ability should be copying the abilities of other Zanpakuto’s.”
Roja shook his head since there was no way to communicate with Sen Maboroshi, then those questions won’t be answered.
Roja recalled that the moment he reached the fifth stage, he saw something, it seemed like After dying and coming to this world, Sen Maboroshi suffered serious damage to get him to this world.
But since he already reached the fifth stage, then he should be able to reach the sixth.
The Attribute column and the upgrade and such a thing, Roja knew that these were Sen Maboroshi’s ability, but he still didn’t give it up, it’s better to have them to understand his power more.
“Zanka no Tachi is indeed a very powerful ability, powerful enough that it was limited by Sen Maboroshi. so I have to be strong enough to be able to use it…”
Special attribute: All things in the world turn to ashes.
Initial stage: Sword attacks have additional fire damage.
First stage: Activate the Shikai, Ryujin Jakka! (Can be activated!)
Second stage: Activate the Bankai, Zanka no Tachi! (Can’t be activated yet!)
After he reached the state where he can use the Shikai, he found the requirement for the Shikai, he had to reach a power that makes him able to wield such a power and that would be when he reaches the… Eighth stage!
