Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
Kuro was surprised at the hardness of her body, his eyes narrowing slightly as his blade slid across his enemy's flesh without piercing. Seems that I will have to make it sharper… The thought slid through his mind as he remained in the shadows, his mind clear and focused as he reemerged, his blades whipping out in his unique style of swordsmanship as he felt wires hitting around his body, his mind opening as his own body became a blur, the blades all around his body striking rapidly as he shot massive hurdles of force at the individual wires as they attempted to constrict around him, feeling pressure from every side as shadows began to leak out of his very body, his attacks ripping and striking at every one of the incoming forces with explosive force as the strain caused all of his muscles to become tight, but he tried to relax as this web of shadows covered around his body, his jaw clenching shut. Each time he felt them beginning to tighten even the slightest amount, his blades changed course, sliding away in the inverse direction with the use of a miniature hoho. To say that the effort was draining on his stamina was an understatement…
As at last the wire grew closer and closer, Kuro finally allowed for his energy to leave his swords, his reiatsu flowing back into his body to strengthen his own skin as his blades came to a controlled rest, wrapped around his body as he carefully and deliberately closed his eyes, feeling the white mask on his back slowly rising through the wires, the white cloak that was on his body leaving him as it extended and spread outwards, spread along the length of the wires as it covered around them, making them clear to view. His moment came when Yoruichi's knee-jerk reaction was displayed, his peculiar Disturbed Energies from Piero finally coming into effect as they drove like knives through every point along the wire, constraining the energy within before finally snipping off the portion where it was being held by Sui Feng as he threw his body to the side, into the incoming wave of force as he grit his teeth, his body being slammed away as he was shot unceremoniously into a nearby wall, blasting through it as his body rolled and tumbled, before finally coming to a stop in front of a wall. "Damn… it…" He grit through the pain, as the wire had drawn blood across his body. The consequence of his separation from Sui Feng was the fact that he had had to contain all of the energy away from her connection point before cutting it; he still could not move as the white energy flowed along the wire. Now, it was attached only to Yoruichi, leaving a white line like a fishing line that was still constraining him at the end, but there was significantly less due to the unwinding that Kuro had shaped the string within. That had been the true purpose behind his desperate struggle; he had been preventing the wire from becoming tangled in on itself.
He could feel the tugging forces from her fight with Koichi as he concentrated, his eyes glowing white as the blade in his left arm began to expand rapidly, before becoming a massive broadsword rippling with disturbed energies, tearing through the wire as he finally began to stand up, his blades pushing the wire away from his arms and legs as he dropped the blade held by his knee. ...So I cannot vanish into the shadows any longer… seems I'll have to face the light of day after all. With those encouraging thoughts, Kuro began to catch his breath and bearings once more, thankful for the respite no matter how short. He was also interested in the blade… that he was holding in his right hand?
His head turned to the side, looking at his arm… and realizing that it was no longer there. His left arm had vanished, replaced only by a silver emblem with a black cross. What.. The hell…? He thought, his eyes widening as he beheld the blade in his hands. It felt… weightless, and yet his entire body felt the same way. Without thinking, he pressed the tip of the blade along the now missing space that had caused the remainder of the physical thread to fall away, causing his arm to reappear as the sword disappeared. It left only the blade of his bankai, causing Kuro to look at the weapon and his arm slightly mystified…
He could hear the ferocious sounds of fighting still away, and it would seem that his escape would have finally been noticed as his eyes began to narrow, his body leaning forwards as he cleared his mind of unnecessary thoughts. As he began to do so, a strange black energy began to appear around his body. The mask that was attached to his cloak rose up, becoming fixed snugly on his eyes as the Masquerade he wore began to glow darkly, the same sensation taking over all around his body as strange shots of darkness began emitting from his form, as he began to merge the Shadows, Hoho, and Kido. It was an ability that he had only experimented with in the past; but if he could not increase his speed in some manner right now, he would most certainly be killed. And that… would not be good.
That was his final conclusion as his spiritual pressure, which had before been completely concealed, finally became revealed as it began to rapidly shoot through the roof as he began to emit the totality of his spiritual prowess, his body entering into a crouch. He observed the terrific box that had emerged as his body rapidly shot over to it as if motivated by a jet engine of some kind. His body was now standing atop the pillar, feeling the four that were down below, while at the same time gripping at his own head. So much… strain… His teeth were grit as he attempted to relax, to gain some control. That was the greatest challenge while wielding this form; the controlled release of the shadows through Hoho. His eyes saw the assault that was being performed against the Iramasha as he vanished, leaving only the imprint of his shadow as he passed like a shadow through the ranks of the Omnitsuko, not attacking them but parrying their blows with great force, throwing them off in their combat, before finally he re-emerged in front of the only enemy that was still within his sight.
It was then that he finally felt the presence that he was given as a gift. The energy source that had been passed to him from Koichi helped restore his stamina as his body allowed it to enter him, Piero making a strange remark as he did so. You had best be wary, foolish Master. He's getting this from some demonic source… though I wish he had left it untouched, Kukukuku… That laughter was still flowing through Kuro's mind as he recalled when Koichi had given him this boon. He remembered being wished luck, before nodding in deference as he gave a small smile. It had been quite some time since he had been on the battlefield with someone who he felt supported by… it had been far too long, in his opinion. So it was that the two Hounds, Kuro and Koichi, both continued the battle against the Tigress and the Bee.
...Do they have to destroy more…? Kuro thought to himself, a bit sadly, as he saw the Chaos Blasts being fired. It had not been very long since the Gotei had to be rebuilt. They had all worked on it, for very long hours. Now, that work was being tarnished, destroyed by more fighting. "...But I wonder if that's the purpose of growth?" Kuro allowed himself to mutter aloud as the cloak around his body greatly expanded outwards, flicking about back and forth although there was no wind. Kuro felt a bit… out of place, as he finally brought both hands up to his face, looking at his hands as he considered what to do.
What's right? What's wrong? I am protecting my home. Koichi of the Iramasha Guard and Tetsuya are engaging the primary threats. What should I be doing right now? What would have the greatest effect…?
In the final conclusion of that decision, his eyes opened wide. "...Attack… the student…" Were the words he muttered aloud as his mouth opened wide, his head tilting back as his arms gripped on either side of his body, a condensed ball of shadows emerging in front of his body, in front of his mouth. All over the Gotei, lights began burning brighter, and everything could be seen as if through white wash as Kuro condensed the most shadow energy possible, his mouth opening wide as the ball condensed to a size where it would fit inside, before his head tilted downwards at the great box that had been created with Sui Feng inside. Throughout his mind, Kuro could see them; the attacked Omnitsuko, the three dead bodies of the Iramasha. "No… MOOOOOOOOOORE!!"
With that declaration, his mouth opened wide as the shadows that he had been gathering shot all around his body, turning his entire form black as night as his body vanished, a massive hole appearing in the top of the box as he appeared in front of Sui Feng's body. Without hesitation, his right elbow appeared in front of her face, attempting to break her jaw as his body spun around at speeds that would blow a normal human away from the draft created, and yet there was no draft. It was as if he were a moving shadow as the blade in his left hand whisked past her front, attempting to slice her in half as his body leaned forwards, before dashing rapidly. While he could no longer vanish into the shadows, he decided that it would mean that he would have to go fully on the offensive.
His whirling blades, therefore, would clash and strike at Sui Feng over and over, and every time she would stop moving away from him he would use the opportunity to continue his assault from different angles. "How dare you kill my allies…" A nearly satanic voice asked the woman as more blades began emerging from his body, a full thirty blades, many of which were made purely from shadows. His whirling attacks continued their assault as he shot and stabbed, his elbows and knees striking throughout and performing much higher piercing attacks at her stomach, pelvis, hips, shoulders, throat, and chin.
In addition, every blow that he performed was as if it were being dealt from Shunko. While the overall control was nowhere near as great, it was much more forceful, as it was on an entirely different level than the blades of Kuro's bankai. "How DARE YOU!" Kuro demanded as he threw his blades completely behind him, causing them to flow out along his cloak as his white eyes could be seen, his fists and legs now replacing his blades as they struck and crashed.
Finally, his head ducked in close, the armor of shadows dissipating as he allowed a single drop of her peculiar poison to touch his cheek. "Your teacher… what will she say when her student dies? What weakness will she reveal when your life is put under threat? When the damage and torture being inflicted upon you is at this level you attack US with?" The male asked, as he continued to stare at her through the 'illusion' of pain. The truth of the matter was that it was like cool water being placed on his face. Kuro was well versed in hallucinations of pain; it reminded him of that time when he had cut himself in front of Jenna's grave. However, this was repentance, to him. He was no monster. He was not a monster, and he was nothing like these people he fought.
Finally, his body switched back as he pressed on the ground, causing an explosive tumble as he lost control, his body spinning like a shadowy boulder as it slid across the ground, before he was struck with inspiration as he forced himself into the ground. He dove deep down inside, leaving a hole in his wake cloaked by shadows. From these shadows emerged that mask that he wore upon his face, sticking up in the air as it looked at Sui Feng, as well as any of the Omnitsuko that were still trapped inside. From there, it would began to emit blades, firing them out in waves and pulses at his adversaries. If it hit anything but them, the shadows would disperse, flowing back into the pit over the period of a post. If it hit an enemy, however, it would likely pierce through the Ominitsuko, and bruise Sui Feng.
So it was here that Kuro remained, his body beaten and battered, his breath ragged, blood dripping from wounds from the wire on the front of his body as well as the illusion of pain and the butterfly mark between his eyes... and yet, there was a determination within him that he had not known before. He would not stand for this senseless slaughter. So strong was this resolve that he was already planning his next movement. If his hole went unexplored, he would certainly use the opportunity to perform a surprise attack… but the question was not about whether or not he would perform a surprise attack, but to whom. At this moment, Kuro did not know who it would have a larger effect upon, but his manipulation of the shadows on the outside of the barrier began to form themselves into words, plain for Koichi and Yoruichi to see.

[adm]At the moment I am trying to speed things along with the event. So, with that said, I'm going to more or less draw a conclusion to this thread. With the fact that Inverse Yoruichi and Soi-Fong have been dropped by Trim, I'm going to assume that these characters more or less dealt with the threat and destroyed them as the Kora A'ina's of their realms were destroyed and they would have more than likely been rendered weakened by this point. Therefore, this would resolve the incident and bring an end to the thread. This is, of course, if no one responds to this warning in the next three days. [/adm]
