The mad one noticed Yuu was still talking after all that it was a weird sight to finally see this somebody finally defeated by him it has been a while. Still the woman was thinking she was going to curse him, Yuu wasn't a demon so how was this going to fly was she finally accepting to her weakness after all it would be nice. Eric was angry that the Yuudeshi clan would send a fighter that might have the same tragedies as he did but his darker half erased them so it wouldn't matter. The good news was his telepathy powers were working pretty good and now this woman talked to him about Kade Hiroshima something that was in the past. Unfortunately, Engra locked that part of Eric away so no more troubles were to happen to him but his darker half felt it trying to reach out for some reason and he didn't know why still it was kind of weird.
Engra thought now that he had access to Kade's memories maybe the demon warmonger could finally figure out what happen and discover what truly happen to his partner family. Even though, Engra said this was going to be his problem the guy wanted to talk to Yuu since she was utterly broken and defeated at last. The dark energy started to appear and Engra was unleashed into the world again and there the demon berserker saw Yuu an broken mess the demon couldn't believe it. The demon sensed she was destroyed still within a spot of her mind this was too perfect what else could the demon do to her but actually he'd won.
Engra was speaking telepathically to Yuu thinking it was finally time to put this to bed permanently so finally the mad berserker to put in his two cents. After the golden coast, Engra didn't want to deal with such bullshit and let Eric doubt himself it was too much about the past life so the berserker did something about it. He told Eric that everything about Kade Hiroshima will be his responsibility to let himself the berserker handle that burden instead of his partner. Engra took a deep breath and Yuu finally heard what he had to say "You have a problem you talk to me and fight......I don't give a shit what happen to you or what you'll do because I'm worse then Eric....... I locked away everything of Kade Hiroshima because of many things your chasing a ghost. Kade Hiroshima is shattered memory of what Eric Zarathos was a noble demon protecting the innocent. That was a lifetime ago....you human cow. A century of torment IS NOTHING try a millenium then come back to me with your sob story. The first time when iramasha soldiers were killing demons left and right..HIS BEST FRIENDS no reason at all. The second time when Kade found his wife and daughter killed by......Hmmmm,I don't think it was Kin Iramasha....his fragments of the killer are shady. BUT THE SOUL SOCIETY STABBED HIM IN THE BACK AFTER A LONG CENTURY WORTH OF SERVICE. Then the final thing after Kade Hiroshima finally started getting over what happen BANG.....He's dead as well as his stepsister killed by that wizard Hagokumo Masada. You want to know the sad thing about after restoring Kade's dark, broken and fragmented mind, I found out something an Yuudeshi brother and sister died in Kade's hands. While protecting an innocent Sugiura child from bullying punks now I don't when this happen but Kade was still noble...a noble demon.......I guess their no reason in letting you have the curse anyway the damage has been done and ewwww your leg not good either. The poison has been injected your leg nearly green......Hmmm that means it will take 3 and 1/2 weeks to recover with the nightmares, fever, headaches and chills"
Engra was about to remove the curse of the dahlia but something caught his attention somebody was coming but the demon wanted some insurance first. The mad berserker did remove the dahlia curse from Yuu but the poison blood from the dahlia was finished spreading through Yuu's body. It would take her 2 weeks to recover she'll have a shitload worth of nightmares she'll have to endure now. Engra disappears as Eric takes control again someone was here and then the mad one started sensing around to see who it was then the demon had a good idea who it was. With his sensing powers, Eric tried sniffing with his noise and it was an quincy with some scent awareness magic activated the demon sniffs something else too. Whoever this fool was the person was hanging around yuudeshi clan members but it was a faint scent of that so nothing really to worry about. If things get sour then the mad demon will have not choice but to unleash his final trump card still let see who this bastard was before the mad demon could do anything.
The mad demon heard something it was weird almost like an echo something was going on maybe an angel was coming to kill him or something this was a weird noise. "Oh......If I'm right their only person who have some balls to do this.....Cero" He thought. Then the mad demon felt a sharp pain on each side the only thing this person and his clones were doing was making him angry but it was nothing to him. Whoever this Cero was had some balls trying to mess with a mad demon maybe it was time to take this to he next level the mad demon was being assaulted by a damn barrage of the bastard's attacks. How could Cero pull something like this off but the mad demon needed to calm down his damage around his body was painful but the mad demon wasn't feeling much of it. Throughout the demon world, Eric trained after every battle thinking about the human lesson of pain if you just stop feeling it a demon could start using it to his advantage within battle and through training.
Cero attacked again this time his clones went on the offensive, Eric waited for the golden opportunity their attacks were hitting their mark. One of them managed to slip, Eric saw it and attacked with summoned his hell magic bashing the bastard with flame war hammer slamming him to the rocks. The other managed some strikes at the mad demon but left himself wide open, Eric punched the shit out of the clone knocking him hard into a construction site. Their was that weird sound again, Eric needed to get this neutralized the sooner the better because this Cero was becoming more of nuisance then a fighter. The mad demon didn't realized their were more clones now this wasn't fair of Cero wanted to play this way fine but the mad demon had some friends too it was finally time to let them out. Eric realized something what were these clones up to as they were ready to do something maybe the mad demon might want to wait on this to see what happens. Then the mad demon sees it, A whole mess of trouble coming his way then finally if Cero wanted this way then the mad one finally thought it was time to show this fool a special guest. The arrows were coming his way, Eric snapped his fingers and then appeared Vanitas an ex-shinigami now an vizard unleashing his shikai from his Zanpakutō. Vanitas summoned his hollow mask and charged attacking the arrows with augmented speed attacking all the arrows but something was a miss most of them were coming at his master but the mad demon wasn't worried.
With one hand, Eric activated the shinra tensei then the arrows stopped the attacks completely the mad one cracked his knuckles. He was getting ready to attack until someone else enters the battle and then the mad demon stops a weird shiver was done his spine but the mad one wasn't afraid of this. Touma punched him leaving him wide open and it was a cheap shot and to think the mad demon was stupid that the imagine breaker would be activated. Eric was insulted that the Yuudeshi clan would send children after him maybe this one has a hearing problem and this child needed his ears cleaned. Eric clenched his fist and punched Touma right in the ribs hard but that's all the mad demon did because the demon was getting angry. "Right now the left side of your ribs are butter for my bread.....GET YOUR ASS OUT OF HERE AND GO GET ANOTHER HOBBY YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT I WANT YOUR NOTHING BUT CANNON FODDER" He yelled. The timing couldn't be better if the mad one wanted to become a true demon king the demon would have to face impossible threats and this was one of them. He wasn't surprised that the beast of karakura would arrive and also try to aid his allies still the real battle was about to begin. Still, Eric was thinking this couldn't be any perfect thinking it maybe a while for that woman to remove the curse completely. The demon clap his hands in enjoyment but he was activating the second effect of dahlia curse at this point the woman wasn't going to be infected. But the mad demon wanted more insurance on this the Yuudeshi network would have it eyes set on him now that curse is activated the demon moved on to stage two. The summoned monster was given it orders and it was on stand by and the beast waited inside the mad demon hoping this plan would work. If Eric wanted the title of demon king then he needed to do something some people have done defeat Shadin Yuudeshi and his friends the mad demon wasn't backing down anymore. Cero's echoes were ignoring now the demon had something prepared if the punk was to do that again.
This time the mad demon thought the curse was going to get upgraded and wait to see what happens. When Shadin touched Yuu the bastard sealed his fate it was only a matter of time before the yuudeshi will find out what happens next it better to be prepared. "I doubt you'll be able to do that right now you just made a big mistake when you touched your friend Yuu butt naked. Um, I think you been given the worse of the worse Shadin let me explain the dahlia isn't just the legendary human curse. I've done a shitload of research it was the ultimate curse of the dahlia. Yes, I spared Yuu a fate worse then death but by you, Touma and Cero coming to her aid all of you have sealed your fates. I was hoping your keen intellect you figure what the dahlia it does to yuudeshi clan members such as yourself. Relax the dahlia curse of legend doesn't even your bodies nah it wouldn't work but whatever you hit me with. Each time they come into contact with my body they'll weaken and Yuu was the bait this plan is so much better now. I wasn't going through with this you force my hand sending a weakling a warrior like her NOT READY TO FACE ME KNOWING FULL WELL I WOULD TEAR THEM DOWN. I can't wait to see your reaction when the curse of the black dahlia comes into play.....I have lot of more in my arsenal so let get this party started" He said.
Eric and Vanitas were on the defensive still the yuudeshi network weren't able to see the mad demon at all his evil plan was working. The monster inside of the mad demon was shielding him from the Yuudeshi network with it defensive powers it was raging war with it system core. Everytime the network tried homing it on the mad demon and Vanitas it would see just a black void of space.
Yuu Doragonraion, the Dragonne Queen of Competition
A cynical person, yet socially withdrawn to the point of being eccentric. One was someone; one continued to loathe one's own kind arrogantly. One who fell to darkness must make pilgrimage for the enlightenment. Her path is stained and broken, and she shall compete to restore a life.
The Undying Echo of the Unknown A curse you say... An essay to the hearse. The gift of eternity is known, As Serenity and the Unknown.
It was with his clone that Cero escorts Yuu out of the way before he goes to fight Eric. It was Toumas who restore some strength into Yuu's soul before Cero's clone wisked her away. When Eric was speaking into her mind, Yuu listens while she struggles with the pain in both her soul and body, and then at the end of his speech, Yuu responds, "Then your story is just as petty as my own. I am no human as I...will not back down from my promises...and curses. Lock away as you please, Engra...Kade will learn the truth anyhow. Nobility died a long time ago, but...even the foulest of curses and the cruelest of poisons will not end a demigod. I'll give myself a minute of that curse and your husk will have to eat his words upon the day's starlight." After being escorted off the battlefield, the clone is intercepted by Shadin and would allow Shadin to proceed to helping Yuu.
Even before Shadin would leave his room, Yuu's bond with her friend allows her to sense him coming. Though with loyalty and concern for Shadin's health, Yuu mentally was asking him to stay there and let the others handle it, but at the same time, Yuu wanted Shadin to come so she could look at his face and face her punishment for failing him. Ever since she was a teenager, she lost everything and chose to follow Shadin and learn from the Yuudeshi along by herself. She sees herself as the most loyal soldier while also considering herself as a friend. However, the regretful thing was distancing herself because battling enemies and killing them left her seeing humanity in a different light, a light that is always turned off in an enclosed room. When she lived well beyond what her death clock would foretold, Yuu begins seeing herself as a being more than human and chose to deny her own racial heritage because to her, she is dead if she is human and yet even then she still lives throughout the centuries.
She spent more time being Shadin's right hand, his Ichikage instead of being Shadin's real friend when she yearned for a moment of being normal. Years gone by and Yuu continues to feel that she and Shadin has grown out of the silly games and stuff that friends would do. Yuu has a career and still was bound by duty to help Shadin win battles and wars from the sidelines, the flanks and the rear. It is visible that Yuu has trouble letting things go as her metalwork shop is decorated with weapons of war and the armors of survival. That condition worsens when the United States was reported to be destroyed and rebuilt by Shadow Fall, as Yuu began becoming more brutal, more ruthless and vengeful against any kind of arrancar and demon that are not known allies; evident in her disgust about Marisol being head mistress of Karakura High School, which Shadin quelled.
When Shadin chose to attempt to save Yuu, Yuu's body was disciplined in the arts of the greatest feat of defense, Acceptance. Normally, the body has two ways of defense; rejection and acceptance. The more natural was rejection as it relates to hardening one's surface and bones while resisting the elements. Yuu's body was disciplined in Acceptance as a way to allow her body to adapt to the ongoing conditions as fast as it could. The moment when Yuu absorbed the devastating beam attack was the moment when Acceptance is tested at its prime as it results in Yuu's ability to use metaphysical energy affecting her against her foes like a personal buff. With Shadin's stream of light, her body is accepting it as well as her spirit, which allows her to take full benefit of what Shadin is offering her. Even through the painful process, Yuu boasted in the past that it would take a damn lot to make her succumb to agony; though a thousand stab wounds by blades and thorns were not what Yuu had in mind at that time. The side effect was Shadin's gifted ability to hear Yuu's thoughts as well hear in the past so Shadin can make heads and tails about what is going on. Out where Cero, Toumas and Eric would be around, they could see a pillar of starlight in broad daylight as Yuu's soul is resonating with Shadin's. And then the same pillars appears over Toumas and Cero along with Shadin.
Through the resonance with Shadin's soul, Yuu was no longer surrounded by darkness and is in middle of a celestial throne room. Yuu gets up and looks around as she was wondering what was going on. Then she sees a figure who looks like Shadin and he was in pain. It hurts her to see her only friend being hurt because of her, thus prompts her to approach what she believes to be Shadin's soul. In the midst of the healing process, Shadin can clearly see a phantom in gold approaching him while the phantom looks like Yuu as she was clearly concerned for him. No one other than Shadin could see that phantom as she sees him lowering himself and caressed her body's cheek. Yuu feels it both in the throne room and among her phantom, so Yuu instinctually touches her own cheek as lowers herself down to her knees as she reaches out to Shadin's cheek to return the feeling and to hopefully feel for once in a long while. Should Shadin accept or was not paying attention, then Yuu's phantom caresses his cheek.
"I honestly don't have any sort of snappy words to say to you in this moment. I've hated dealing with sentimental words and circumstances like this." Shadin speaks out as through her phantom, Yuu can hear in her soul world, "But, if you can still hear my voice? Please take my hand and fight through this hell." Yuu responds in her soul world, which was linked with Shadin's without her knowledge about the resonance and probably wihout Shadin's knowledge or ability to hear her, "I shall take your hand and fight through this hell." Then Shadin follows up, "Let's not give this bastard the satisfaction of killing you. Otherwise, I'll have to paint this town in a sea of the demon's blood and guts...." Yuu smiles unconsciously and then as Shadin was rubbing hand gently, Yuu's body curls her hand around Shadin's hand, telling him that she is still fighting like a fierce warrior. "This competition is not over. I've exposed his curse for you and that starlight pillar is our will together to cure it. I've cursed him so any of his Void Howling will show up in the physical world and can be resisted. He thinks he won with that stupid strategy...but like the fool I was in the past, I've always come up with some way to stay three steps ahead of my opponents...A step ahead of even Kisuke Urahara. I've wondered...why do I feel like crying when I see you suffer so for me? I've killed too many to tell the difference between happiness and sadness. Tell Kade and Engra there this, 'No cookie for them. They get Thai-Kick instead.' "
By memory, Shadin would remember Yuu being the kind who would not think ahead and rather go with the flow. The secret is that Yuu is never a step ahead, but her well-educated guessing is what made the illusion that she is always a step ahead, aside from her confidence and quirky way of thinking. Yuu's body bears a smile while some tears are visible on her face. And then her body unconsciously speaks, "I'll sleep for now...Thanks, Shadin..."
Cero was glad that he was able to get Yuu off of the the battlefield, for everything leading up to that point was not meant to defeat or give great harm to Eric, but the could definitely be called effective in their purpose none the less. He, however was disappointed by the demon still as he choose to fight on and for this Cero found the slight difficulty to release himself and eliminate the threat at all costs, or as fast as possible to prevent minimal damage. This was of course until Touma jumped into this combat and even though he might not fully be considered an innocent in terms of ability or situation, none the less, he didn't see the need for him to jump into this conflict, and as the strike from Eric came that may or may not have hit and be effective. It ignited the fury within Cero against demons especially of the chaos and mad variety. He gave no worry to Shadin as he approached his clone, which responded accordingly in handing over Yuu to him, and from there the Echo would disappear. To be exact all of the would vanish from sight as Cero drew out his Zanpakutō, but he held it oddly having the blade face out from his arm as if he had attached it to his arm, but one could notice the the arm was actually absorbing the blade and at a quick rate too.
"I'm sorry, but I no longer hold any mercy for you." He stated and eventually the Zanpakutō was completely with him. "Now you shall fall into silence." Cero finished with and from there things would begin.
Cero's energy would explode outward in all directions, and if the hints weren't given already by his Zanpakutō, is the energy gave off the signature of a hollow along with Quincy. From there, some thing began slowly forming over his face that would be white in color, to be exact this white color would match that of the opposing vizard's hollow mask, giving hint to what it was. But it would not really take much of it's full shape as it would only be slowly expanding to only capture over one of his eyes. He would hope that Shadin could do something about the likes of Touma being in his way a little at this time. But he would not hold back any punches for the likes of Eric and his vizard helper. From there, Cero just screamed out at the Vizard. "Die!" There was more to this though as the sound that Cero screamed out traveled a high speed that sound always traveled at to reach the Vizard. Even should the Vizard block his attack even, the force behind it in energy would reach it's mark and blast the enemy back at a speed and force that broke the sound barrier. With that little problem dealt with, he could only hope that his next move worked out. So, without a moment to lose, he flashed to be around 30ft. before the mad demon, and with touma out of the way perfectly or not. A giant arm would form out of the massive amount of reitsu in the air and smash down upon Eric as he commanded it with his own arm matching it's movement.
The arm was at the very least several times bigger than Eric and as such blocking it would not be simple and it came down withe force of Cero's own speed and strength holding it down, but the most important thing about the fist is at the very end as it is smashing down, instead of fingers as expected, the fist held on the end of it a giant blade, that could very well cut down into him and even turn him into two piece's easy. As the pushing down commenced, looking for if Eric had dodged or not, Cero would try to locate his target and from their with his open arm, he would swipe it quickly back and forth like a blade. The result of such creating swipes out of the reitsu in the air similar to his arrows that would strike forward to Eric position and probably slice and obliterate anything that stood in between them if not dealt with or he moves. He sent a total of 7 swipes hoping this would be good enough to get the job done. With his final motion for the time being, Cero would raise up his arm and bala would form, but instead of Eric , these attacks were once more upon the Vizard, and 20 bala would shoot out at the being. That was all that he wished to not jeopardize the others around him like Touma and Yuu. The pillar of Light that had shined upon him before he started his next attacks reminded him that there was the fair of many wanting him to win and protect this city. Looking back, he saw the likes of his friends. Len, Haru, Hype, Shadin, Shatari, Shisome, the many member of the multiple organization that he is apart of, and finally he sees his own reflection, Zero. He decided long ago that he would not let these people down, not without giving his final breath.
But before he rested, he saw a final image of the enemies that he had fought to this point, among them Sing, still stood out among them all and uttered those words that he heard back in Australia. That day made him feel completely lost, and uncertain of his purpose, he still wasn't 100% certain, but he knew that he would need his answer if he ever wanted to face her again if he decided to stay with his beliefs. For the likes of Eric, he didn't require these thoughts but they brought clarity to his mind a little from what could be the beast and monster that is a hollow or mad like his enemy. That mask of a hollow still continued to spread across his face, and he was only set to grow stronger with time in this battle. He could only hope that everyone else was faring well and he had little worries for the likes of Shadin, but everyone else there was still a possibility of danger, maybe even within himself. But all would not prevent most likely what Fate and the World, had in store for those present here.

There are things that Touma can't change himself alone. Even with Imagine Breaker, he doesn't always hold the winning flag, whether a certain supernatural attack, ability or some sort of power is an invincible or an unremovable of sorts, his hand can seem to negate these dire effects no matter how powerful they are in nature, as long as they do not hold the capability to regenerate itself after destruction. However, the Misfortunate Yuudeshi took a wrong step within a combat and tried doing foolish with something that he can't protect wihout enough power unlike anyone else in his family, whom possesses powers that is respected and admired by many as they hold enough power to protect the world, but Touma was one of those who always brings misfortune around him and was only able to negate and destroy things that many can't, of course, with his pair of hands that are so-called 'Imagine Breaker'. A fist came right towards his direction, and he couldn't have the time nor the reaction to avoid such a punch, and eventually, the huge force from the very fist of the demon landed right against his chest, almost near the point of shattering his ribs that are still standing firmly despite receiving a huge impact from the demon, sending Touma right off to the air and fall before the ground beneath them.
His body was laying right against the cold ground, his head only diverted to where Shadin entered and returned to the female, only to see a tear flowing down to her cheeks and drops into the very earth within this fierce battlefield. His eyes widened and planted his own forehead before the ground. Against the eyes of the many around him, his arms seems to extend out from his body, coughing blood as his body slowly stood up from the damage he took against his chest. The pain is still stinging, but forcefully shrugging it off with sheer willpower. Touma's eyes had a look of a determined man, sharply looking at the demon as his teeth grinded with anger, "If you think our fate is sealed, then i'll destroy that illusion of yours first, you damn thug!"
His fists gripped tightly and shouted with all of his might. Wihout another thought within his mind, Touma's body automatically rushed into the battlefield, where the odds are heavily placed under Kade's shoulders. For Touma, even with his Imagine Breaker, all he could do is at least being able to negate any possible supernatural attacks that aren't all-powerful and are directly connected to Kade's source of power, while weakening the attacks like the Dahlia Curse that he had used by weakening its effects and slowing down the time for the curse to enter its next stage. He would attempt to rush into the battlefield and observe if the demon would try to launch a hit on him if Touma were try to get near him. Of course, once the giant arm that seemed to be made purely out of Cero's reiatsu and smashed down upon Eric, if it hits its target, Touma would make an attempt to touch the giant arm and make it disperse into a million pieces from the effects of his Imagine Breaker, giving him a chance to land a blow on Eric's jaw if the demon was distracted by the very fury of the giant arm that formed. If not, his body would shift to the side once Eric's attack got at least a centimeters close to him and performing an uppercut right against the demon's lower jaw with as much force as possible that he could exert from his fist. Any supernatural attempts or even death energy usage to form a dense, protective energy across and within his skin to weaken the force of his punch would be negated and completely destroyed under the effects of his Imagine Breaker, and would have a full damage against the likes of Eric.
However, Touma had another plan up his sleeves. His eyes glanced back at Cero, nodding his head as if he was trying to give out a sign to him about 'something', where he is going to witness it soon. If the arm ever reform from the Imagine Breaker's negation effect and had its blade swung before the demon, Touma did not look behind him, only to reach out his left hand behind his back and took a grasp before the giant sword that was made out of the very reiatsu of Cero, but during its negation effect, Eric may probably think that his left hand is going to completely destroy the sword because of how his hand could affect supernatural objects, if held long enough since it has its own negation time to completely nullify and destroy something, but less than a second, his left hand swiped foward, blowing all the reiatsu particles away behind Eric. What the Yuudeshi had thought is if he swiped all the reiatsu particles behind eric and the source is still there, Cero could still perform a reformation of the sword and the arm to perform a swing right from behind to land a surprise hit against the demon, depending on the quincy's choice. And to catch the demon's attention from the surprise, his body rushed foward, only to forcefully collide his forehead against the demon's to land a strong blow to catch Kade offguard from noticing his back.
Touma turned around, only to shout one word on Cero, "NOW!!!"

Sensing that the core of Yuu's body was beginning to respond to his treatment, there was a wave of relief that oozed throughout The Yuudeshi's body. A smile could be seen coming into view across his face despite the circumstances they were under and the threat Karakura was now posed against with a Demon Overlord in it's vicinity. For in the mind of The Beast of Karakura? Everything else around him was but nothing a mindless blur in the wake of being able to save a life. It felt -- good -- to be able to not only take a life, but have the ability to save one from the clutches of death. This was the primary motivation for the male not going straight for Eric Zarathos's neck upon his arrival to the battlefield. Instead of tainting himself with blood first, Shadin would do his damndest to use his powers for something worthy.
Whats more, there appeared to be a bizarre side effect being forged due to his powers connecting so heavily with Yuu Doragonraion's soul at this time. A notice popped up within his cyberbrain and The Yuudeshi became fully aware that he was now able to pear into the thoughts of his comrade. It caused a slight chuckle to ooze out of his mouth as the wonders of Imaginary Computation was still generating mysteries not even he understood. It's one thing to achieve a sense of telepathic communication, but The Beast felt like this was phenomenon entirely different from that. It was as if his very mind was being drawn inwards within the central most part of The Demon Slayer's spirit.
In these moments of introspection into the very depths of Yuu, Shadin was able to experience all of her frantic moments in this fight. To the billions of blades she suffered in Eric's illusion, to gathering intelligence on the attributes of Eric's attacks and the sensations she felt through all of this. Gathering a much clearer picture from all of the strife his beloved friend had endured through her battle with The Demon Lord, The Beast of Karakura felt it was commendable and impressive she was able to fight him off for as long as she did. Through the colossal difference in power between the two spirits, she pulled her own weight and certainly gave him the hell he envisioned for The Mad One. However -- there wouldn't be much time to indulge in these passing thoughts.
Looking upwards, Shadin started to pay attention to a phantom-like figure beginning to materialize itself before his eyes. Not being able to detect any hostile intent from this creature, The Yuudeshi simply allowed himself to remain calm throughout all of this as he started working on clearing out all of the toxins within Yuu's body on a physical and metaphysical level. Seeing this entity get closer inward towards him, an partially surprised expression came across the silver haired male's face as he felt the caressing of his cheeks by this figure. It is in that frame of time that he estimated this was a projection of her spirit coming into the physical realm.
Turning his eyes back to Yuu, though, a reassured look eased into Shadin's face as she seemed to be able to respond to him still. There had been enough fight left within the competitor to endure this hell that devoured the life of The Beast and all those associated with the strings leading to his spirit. Listening to the words of his companion echo out further, he'd definitely understand the in's and out's of Eric's gimmick. After all, he was Karakura Central's top ranked mind. In the perception of The Beast? Then nobody but God could decipher these notes to The Mad One's plague. And with the leftover reserves of his pseudo awakening still in effect? Shadin certainly felt as if he had a connection to one.
"The path for those whom have killed is certainly a long one, Yuu. You and me are both on a one-way road to hell, there is no mistaking that. Yet and still, when one encounters another spirit who has went into the darkest pits of hell and survived? Then both can say each of their personal hell's are not as bad as once imagined, and that through their unity, they can break the cycle of torment and suffering together in order come through it stronger than before." Now standing up on his own two feet with a hardened gaze across his eyes, he'd set his sights towards the battlefield that awaited him. Turning an eye back to Yuu, he'd nod his head her request to rest and clench his fist in response to his blood beginning to come over to a boil.
"I'll be sure to relay that message to the smug bastard. You've earned that rest. Let me handle it from here on out and dare to endure the weight of both of our cursed souls." Lingering on that last note to Yuu, Shadin would have the energy already enveloping The Dragonne Queen begin to come to an acceleration. Should she accept this alteration? The energies would latch on to Shadin's mental commands and teleport her to the underground portion of Karakura Hospital. Once there? He would have his own team of medical personnel be waiting and call for Heaven's Canceler to oversee Yuu's recovery from this. If there is one man who was equipped to handle her prognosis -- it was that doctor -- the man capable of healing even The Beast of Karakura.
No longer being able to view what was behind him, Shadin would gaze forward to the task at hand. The first thing he was greeted with? The self-proclaimed victory of Eric Zarathos as he once again started letting his mouth do the fighting for him. It made him do nothing but shake his head. It was as if this guy was filled with nothing but horrible cliches even for a villain. Just hearing him talk on and on made The Yuudeshi roll his eyes out of sickness for the rubbish that uttered out of his mouth. Therefore, he wouldn't waste any words on him as they would go in one ear and out of the other. The only thing a brute like The Mad Demon would understand is action.
(CHANGE SONG HERE)
Thus, The Beast's eyes came to life with a reddened glow behind them. Through the assistance of The Yuudeshi Network's presence in Karakura Central, Shadin utilized the memories of Yuu alongside the series of nano-machines that were all present within Karakura Central to begin his work. With these two factors coming into play, the processes within The Mind of God started revving up in order to begin inducing an aerial vaccine to be injected into the likes of himself, Cero and Touma. By understanding the fundamental mechanics of the poisons Eric utilized, the bases of spells he used to curse his opponents and locking on to the frequency of his spiritual pattern; he intermixed all of this data Eric forfeited by fighting for so long to build up an immunity to them for all parties on the field.
In other words, Imaginary Computation was able to produce a metaphysical antibiotic that blocked out the effects of Void Howling, The Curse of the Dahlia and yielded GREAT resistance to any future toxin or curse implemented by the likes of The Mad Demon. Playing into Shadin's hand to a T, the intent behind having Yuu ward off The Demon for so long was to gather data on the abilities, strengths and powers that Eric utilized to have a better chance at defeating him by the time The Beast of Karakura was able to get the clearance from his hospital stay.
More than that, feeding into information from The Yuudeshi Network, The Beast of Karakura had further knowledge of Eric's offensive capacities from his battle against it in the fires of Golden Coast during the Australian Conflict. All during that brawl, The Yuudeshi Network was recording and saving his techniques, understanding his biological structure and watching his progression to have built up this resistance against his attacks. However, it goes back even further than that. All throughout the male's escapades in Karkaura Central, The Network had enough knowledge of Eric's exploits from his brawls with Hanako to increase The Yuudeshi's understanding of The Mad One's powers. Did he honestly take him, the one who wields god's mind, for an outright amateur? It was a foolish mistake on his end and one he'd pay for dearly as Shadin went to work furthering his chances at victory.
Therefore, even with the threat of The Black Dahlia being so boldly announced by Eric, he'd do nothing but seal his own fate as Shadin's body was already working at blocking out all internal and external influence from it to nearly negate a good deal of it's effects before it even began. And to boot, by the time that Cero started his attack, Shadin already started inputting commands into Heaven's Walkers energy particles scattering the range. Feeling a slight strain on his head, he'd bare with this cluster headache in order to morph the reality around them by executing a negation technique. Observing that a particular set of Yuu's attacks were weakening upon contact with Eric's body, The Yuudeshi was able to deduce that the male may have been intending to somehow decrease the effectiveness of their assaults with his magic and cursing. Much to his chagrin, with Karakura Central being his domain, The Beast of this city was able to lock out the values of space around a five thousand meter range to prevent any sort of capacity from Eric to null their attacks.
This was made possible as Shadin was able to access the files associated with Eric's former resistance against Iramasha based attacks he so proclaimed on the field of battle in Australia with his destructive brawl against Moonie Iramasha. Understanding that he was more than likely going to resort to that, it wasn't particularly difficult for Shadin to spread the influence of Imaginary Computation to his nanobots scattering the city. From there, they were able to induce a chain of commands meant to block out that function of Eric's power and render that defense incapacitated. And with the help of Imagine Breaker? The Network was able to increase the likelihood of these endurance Eric had shattering under the weight of Imaginary Computation's grip.
After mentoring the principles of Imagine Breaker, The Yuudeshi Network was able to replicate it's functions. This was made possible by further observation of Touma's constant use of this particular ability. Although it was still unable to understand the origins of this mysterious power, The Nano-machines being fed this data were attempting to induce the conditions needed for the negation to take place. So having Imagine Breaker's influence already inflicting Eric's body from that punch, the Nano-machines would lock on to that and become miniature Imagine Breakers; multiplying and reproducing inside of Eric in an attempt to negate his very existence.
In this moment? Every fiber of The Mad One's being could be felt as if it were on fire. The pain associated with the negation of his body could bring him to his knees; as they were outright attempting to null the very energy within his core and take away a great deal of his power in this move. That means, within the time span they were working in, these machines were doing their best to have a projected outcome of erasing twenty to seventy percent of Eric's very energy to heavily cripple him; depending on how effective this method actual was in practice. The very same effects would be applied to Vanitas; most likely being more effective on him due to the major gap in strength between Shadin and the ex-Shinigami. There is the potential, when combined with Cero's attack, that he'd be outright be put out of commission for the fight.
And, in case Eric or Vanitas were somehow able to counter against the nanobots from the inside, Shadin would have another series of these machines engulfing Karakura reproduce these effects externally; doubling the effect of his attacks in an effort to strike them both down where they stood in a swift motion. Meanwhile, to ease himself from using too much of Imaginary Computation, Shadin implemented commands remotely from his cyberbrain into the Yuudeshi Network. These instructions would be to have a pin--pointed and concreted dose of the barrier erected across Karakura Central to slam into the range where Eric Zarathos would be.
Unlike the shield around the metropolis, this would be set to a high density with the energy from The Yuudeshi Network. Being that a ten meter space around The Mad Demon was far more simplistic to advance the effects of said barrier, the reactions from this barrier would be enough to compound the pain of The Demon Lord and further cripple him. This was geared specifically towards Demon Blood and was intended to outright vaporize him. As the strength of the dome around Eric would be comparable to a Demonic Spell being launched by the likes of Mana Asthavon. So he'd notice his powers beginning to greatly weaken, the functions of his regenerative powers coming to a halt and eventually he would suffer potential death if he were to stay too long in the barrier due to the harsh frequency the barrier was amplified to. As the standard shield around Karakura Central was set to a normal level, where this was cranked to be nearly twenty times stronger due to it being focused on a precise location of where The Mad Demon was.
All the while, The Yuudeshi Network itself started to awaken; as the very same sentient being that fought against Eric on the day of the Australian Conflict could detect a presence within it's core. Sighing with the utmost of irritation, The Will of The Yuudeshi Network started to isolate the infected sectors and then outright cleanse and purge them from being associated with the connection. In this way, The Monster that Eric implemented was rejected before it's time to reign havoc could even come. The Will Of The Network would attempt to send the creature into an isolated dimension underneath Karakura Central and the Imaginary District; reproducing the effects of the city's barrier to an unimaginable degree to vaporize it and destroy the virus within this pocket realm. If nothing else, The Network would try and lock the cretin within this isolated dimension and null it's influence down to zero.
Flashing back to Shadin himself, he'd have a tired sigh escape his lips as he'd spit blood out of his mouth from constantly working his powers in such a way. Tapping the electrode on his collar, he was amazed of what his body could do just by feeding off the energy of Heaven's Walker and utilizing the functions of his cyberbrain with the defenses already set in place by Karakura Central. Having only the energy of a powerless human at the moment by himself, Shadin's body was merely feasting off the reserves of his own energy stored within the cane prior to his surgeries, experimentation, fine-tuning and recovery in Karakura Hospital. The abilities that lay within him were all active, but they simply needed a source of fuel to work with and the activation of Shadin's cyberbrain to understand where to go.
To this end, he'd enforce one final command. Being more simplistic in nature to ease the pressure on his skull, Shadin would start amplifying the kinetic energy around his right arm that was freed from holding Heaven's Walker. By doing this, he'd seek to use a form of telekinetic combat to dramatically bolster the force around his hand to be on par with a Grand Master strength in Hakuda to pierce the armor of Eric's durability. Remembering a flashback of his fight against the Ex-Espada, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, in the outskirts of Karkaura Central in the summer of 2413; he knew he wanted to finish this battle with his bare hands in remembrance of that fight.
Therefore, even if he posed the risk of shattering his own bones with this intensification of strength, he was more than willing to put that on the line to bash Eric's face in for everything that he has caused in his stay within Karakura Central. So to make this upcoming punch even more dangerous, he'd infuse the proprieties of the cities barrier into his arm to the same level of strength capable of bringing a Demon Overlord down at the risk of igniting his own arm in flames; as the skin around Shadin's right arm seemed to be filled with many pulsating veins, static electricity and turning beet red as he prepared for this assault.
"Don't believe for a second that just being a rampaging bastard qualifies you to be a villain. Avenging the death of a family? Obtaining revenge for the supposed torment you suffered? Fighting a monster like myself to redeem yourself and your people? DON'T GIVE ME THAT SHIT!" Taking off like a wild banshee, even in his weakened state, Shadin's speed was enough to nearly instantly reach the vicinity where Eric stood. In this way, he'd let out an angry yell in order to direct this otherworldly punch in The Mad One's face. It would let loose a devastating quake throughout the radius of Karakura City; giving a slight 4.0 Earthquake throughout the rage. It shattered windows all around them, made car alarms scream in the distance and the unleashing of The Beast's energy released a great deal of heat in the range.
However, in spite of all these adverse reactions to the area, the damage factor of this attack, if not controlled by Shadin, yielded the potential to outright destroy the face of this portion of Karakura Central rather easily. Instead? Shadin was focusing and directing all of his power into the body of Eric. Compiled with all the other assaults made on The Mad One's body up until this point, this was meant to be a one hit KO if possible. As this punch would seek to break the bones within The Mad One's body, inflict significant damage upon Engra's very conscious and potentially send Eric straight out of Karakura Central with this blow with how much impact it had.
And in conjunction with the effects of the Replicated Imagine Breaker and Karakura Central Barrier infused into this punch? Eric may very well feel the brink of his body being pushed by how much force was attempting to knock him down, break the demon down systemically and bring forth a punishing defeat. By outright sealing his powers and making him powerless for the duration of this fight, this singular punched had the fury of The Beast contained within it as Shadin infused the art of Senka to break the core of Eric's energy and Soul Chain with this heinous shunpo technique being added into the factors for his rampage's end.
Meanwhile, a hardened replica of Shadin's after-image would emerge behind Vanitas. Being comprised of the kinetic energy associated with The Beast's daunting speed, this creature would pack roughly seventy five percent of the same blow given to the original Shadin against Eric's body. However, the Senka part would be more perfected on it as it was designed to take out a Shinigami's soul chain. So as the duplicate of Shadin would feast upon Vanitas's flank, he'd hope to outright yank him out of this battle with this move as well.
However, no matter what results would occur in between or afterward, Shadin would grit his teeth and shake his head due to the path Eric was taking. Even though he was a miserable pile of demonic filth, Shadin still felt some form of empathy despite his great loathing for the demon race in general. The reason for this was due to the fact that Shadin understood how it was to lose everything you cared, to have the very family you protect be taken away due to bullshit circumstances out of your control and to go on the path of vengeance. It's why he was here facing Eric and fighting yet another spawn of the accursed demon race. Ever since the dawn of World War Three so many years ago, Shadin had done his part to avenge those whom he has lost and attempt to revert the world back to the way it was during the era of peace. So -- rather he wants to admit it or not -- it pained Shadin to realize that they were both men under very similar circumstance on two separate sides of the spectrum.
"Damn bastard, didn't you realize that those actions you took were slowly closing in around your neck like a noose!?" Echoing out that holler throughout everything else, Shadin would deliver those final words to Eric as he sought to understand why he was doing these absurd actions that would lead to his demise to begin with. What would turn a person to step into the lion's den with the beast to face certain suicide? It made no sense as he yielded no chance of success in his mind, yet he still proceeded to face down The Mind of God in his own domain. All that The Beast of Karakura could do now was await the response from Eric to find out his motives and observe rather or not the collective efforts of this three man team had any effect.

The black dahlia curse was weakening the mad demon could feel it breaking apart how the hell did they defeat it. The mad demon couldn't believe it how could his resources into placing the ultimate curse fall like this it wasn't fair. How the black dahlia curse had a weak energy pulse and it was dying but it wasn't destroyed completely because it has a legendary power brewing inside it. But this time is was dying...."OH NO NOO NOOOOOOO, I CAN FEEL IT MY CURSE IS WEAKEN HOW DID YOU BREAK IT..... YOU MUST HAVE SOMETHING WORKING FOR YOU CHEATING AND HURTING MY BLACK DAHLIA. YOU'LL PAY FOR THIS........" He yelled. Plus the shadow technique was failing now the damn network could sense them know, Eric's plans were fucking up right now.
Eric and Vanitas were on their guard but something was going inside the mad demon as the summoned beast was sleeping peacefully then it sensed a powerful person. The dahlia curse was removed off Yuu but the spider tattoo was still on the ground and then it became a spider demon....no matter how many times she tries to get rid of the thing. The little spider demon will revive itself a little gift of the dahlia curse, Eric wasn't going to let the woman off the hook so easily. She should have realized what humans did in the past allowing this ancient curse to grow into fruition but the little spider will follow here anyway she goes. "Hmph, I doubt Yuu knows about it so let that be my curse to her now sending people to fight instead of her shameful for a warrior of her power. Now Shadin is here and my black dahlia curse is weakening still I have little time.....I, Eric Zarathos for one day sacrificed my two fingers and kage chokyoshi power to make the black dahlia curse stronger......En Shendo Dracul of the Dark Heavens....Make my Black Dahlia stronger" Eric said quietly. As Eric's two fingers were torn off and then the demon lost his ability to teleport so now the demon wasn't going anywhere however. Eric saw the black dahlia was back and it grew towards all three of his enemies in the form of black spider mark completely on the ground.
The monster known as Kyokotsu was resting inside the mad demon as the runes were well protected from Eric's enemies. The shadow monster was looking through Eric's eyes thinking of an battle plan since Vanitas wouldn't be able to handle Shadin with the mad demon's help. Kyokotsu thought Shadin was an ziamichi so the demon would have to prepare tactics with the summoned beast magic hopefully this magical influence will work. With the summoned beast's magic, Kyokotsu was making the mad demon stronger pumping an demonic adrenaline rush into the mad demon's veins. But the summoned demon sensed something weird with it power and it was an ziamichi the beast.....this being was a lot stronger. This couldn't be Cero it couldn't be coming from him it had to be Shadin Yuudeshi this would be the ultimate test of his and his master abilities because this was a battle. This is against pure madness of a demon and enemy beast's ultimate power only one will come out on top yet, Eric already knew that to become a demon king the demon would do something Hagokumo couldn't. He needed to defeat Shadin Yuudeshi and hopefully earn that title as last but before earning the right to become demon king the demon of madness needs to put his greatest fear to rest. Eric wanted to fight the Beast of Karakura town and this was his chance to prove to everybody the mad demon was a true threat meaning pulling out all the stops will have to be done. All of tricks and maneuvers will need to be done by the mad one...
The summoned beast was awakened and then it felt something why would they come after him like that then the beast remembered something it seemed familiar. The monster inside of Eric warned him they were planning something badly and Cero and Touma were to be Shadin's tools for this plan. Eric then thought his impostor Kade was defeated by something of that same tactic.....Eric couldn't believe it Shadin was trying to do the same thing as the mad demon was angry. "No.....He couldn't be, I don't believe it he might try killing me the same way he killed the bastard that took my life. That's the look I hate that look it was the same look he gave Hagokumo before he'd killed him that should have been me killing Haku, He going to try that knowing....Everything No....He's trying to piss me off" He thought. The summoned monster whispers that he had a plan and then the demon started explaining the measures of the plan the black dahlia curse was protected it was still on the ground. The summoned beast of Khala's gift was doing his part keeping the black dahlia curse active but the summoned beast was giving Eric instructions on how to deal with this threat. "We need to fool them making it look like your wounded by their attacks then have it look like your defeated then attack Shadin, Cero and Touma with everything you got" Kyokotsu said.
The mad demon was fighting off against Cero blocking most of his attacks then the mad demon thought of something Shadin did defeat Kade Hiroshima. Despite Hagokumo stole his life and everything that he cared about and then tarnishing his good name and still Kade Hiroshima was a name of an monster during his fight with the quincy. Engra was fixing the broken pieces of Kade's mind and then finally the mad berserker finally finds out something the face of his family's killer the dark one had refixed Kade's tortured mind the demon berserker fixed it. An everlasting pain was finally lifted off the mad demon's shoulders as Eric was told the good news the killer that was responsible for his wife and daughter's murdered was dealt with. Engra explains to Eric what happen and who the bastard was an member of the iramasha clan that was banished long ago the person that the mad demon killed within the demon world after an demon mission. Eric had a terrible thought what if someone wanted him to become the mad demon it would explain a lot and his wife and daughter had to die because of this. The fact of the matter was the mad demon could put this old ghost to rest it was holding him down for a long time. This was good news indeed and with saving that shinigami's Zanpakutō a fate worse then death Kade Hiroshima could be put to rest as the dark side of Eric Zarathos can put Kade Hiroshima to rest. At that moment, Eric stopped in his taracks while fighting off Cero's attacks and then finally smiles as his eyes glow red the mad demon was at full power and something about him had changed.
"Oh now I don't need to be reminded about the past anymore thanks to Yuu, She erased everything about my past because of her curse. To think she tried to curse me knowing full well the dahlia prevents that or anything she does and saids. I must thank that idiot now with Kade Hiroshima gone from me forever...... What we have here is a ultimate opportunity for me to stop playing around and show you what a mad demon can do."He said. Eric charged at Cero the quincy didn't have any warning and the demon rushed at him mad broke his jaw hard to the ground the demon unleashed at barrage of deadly hits. Without Kade Hiroshima holding him down, Eric showed his ruthless side something the demon hadn't showed in a long time as Cero hits him with his slashes. Eric hits him with a gravity punch with the gravity pulse sending a tremendous shock waves cracking the quincy's ribs but the demon wasn't done. The mad demon grabbed onto the side of an building and started tearing at it ripping it apart and then slamming it into Cero hard on his face the mad demon wouldn't stop. Eric hit him so hard it created a massive earthquake which broke up the city pavement as a fire hydrant started leaking water just what he didn't needed need. The mad demon was hoping that would be the last time that he sees the quincy putting punishment to his body. He was bit tired after that but this wasn't the time to be thinking about the pain and how to heal it right now a mad demon should show any weakness because his race wasn't raised like that.
" THAT LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT I'm going to flatten that little Yuudeshi br.....OH SHIT NO" He said.
Shadin charged at him now knowing the black dahlia curse was just upgraded it was growing stronger because of the imagine breaker it was weakening a little. As his war devil eyes were activated, But the demon didn't have time to come up with a plan it has to a quick technique. The mad demon didn't have much time, Kyokotsu told the mad demon to quickly prepared himself and then the mad demon prepared a combo as Shadin was coming. "No time...CREATE SOMETHING WITH...THE MAGIC COMBINER NOW JUST DO IT" Kyokotsu thought. Eric quickly used his magic combiner to combine the (Shinra Tensei + Amaterasu + Shadow Movement + Fire Defense Magic Shield). Thus creating the Ultimate Shield technique because of Shadin's speed their wasn't time to pat himself on the back. Shadin broke the shield. The impact was enough to move the mad demon off his feet but all the time, Shadin was moving as the black dahlia curse was tearing at his feet ripping at both the ziamichi within him and his body. Eric would still feel it the mad demon will have little time to react to the beast of karakura coming to him the mad demon . The beast of Karakura didn't know the demon had absorbed much of Moonie's gravity power and made something different but the mad demon wasn't going to show and tell either. The mad demon was blasted hard but it may it look like the mad demon was completely damaged making Shadin believed the mad demon was completely damaged.
"I can't move and it getting painful" He said.
But something was wrong the mad demon couldn't move the mad one was trying to figure what happen then all that time. Cero & Touma were attacking him they must have done something it was painful to move the mad demon was in a vice or something. This couldn't be happening then the mad demon though of something even though the demon of madness didn't want to admit it this was the same technique. Shadin used to defeat the impostor Kade Hiroshima and where was the real Kade Hiroshima when this happen the demons of the demon world told him what happen. Eric fell down hard to the ground hard the mad demon thought it was all over the good guys were meant to win what was...... What else could he do? Kyokotsu wouldn't tolerate it this summoned monster was his friend the beast felt the mad demon pain but this wasn't it. "I've failed them...I.....NO...THE SOUL SOCIETY BETRAY ME AND THEY SEND HIM TO FINISH THE JOB. I KNOW EVERYTHING AND KADE HIROSHIMA IS DEAD TO ME MY FAMILY CAN REST IN PEACE." He thought. The mad demon could actually fear everyone laughing at him pushing down and then Shadin appeared in front of him. "Damn bastard, didn't you realize that those actions you took were slowly closing in around your neck like a noose!?" Shadin said. Kyokotsu felt the mad demon slipping away but he couldn't give up because the mad demon wanted to prove something and iramasha killed his family. But Eric killed the bastard so his family was avenge the truth was restored to him but now an ex-member of the Soul society was trying to hurt him. What this it? Eric Zarathos the mad demon was going to be defeated by Shadin Yuudeshi the real Kade Hiroshima defeated by a ziamichi this chapter wasn't going to end. "Shadin will pay.......HE'LL PAY" He thought. The mad demon felt his power depleting from his body and the mad demon couldn't do anything. Kyokotsu the spiritual beast started crying then suddenly souls started appearing around the mad demon's body as the mad demon body was glowing. Both Eric and Engra felt this energy and then the souls wanted him to rest saying it was time maybe this was the end after all. Every demon that died were around the mad demon's body protecting him they all were looking at the ziamichi then every demon soul went inside of the mad one. The mad demon's body was completely standing still and then the mad one opened his chest and then it exploded and then his body was gone all of Shadin's inventions remained. The mad demon's energy had disappeared the Yuudeshi network had lost track of the mad demon the souls inside of him were blocking off his energy signal. Finally Eric reappeared and his body was shaking the dahlia curse was stronger then expected but then open up his chest. Once again.....Eric disappeared.
The dimensional gateway appeared and then an demon iramasha started walking upon the ground but the curse was still active and getting stronger. Joshua Iramasha was revived from the darkness of Eric Zarathos this was the second time the forbidden iramasha had returned feeling angry. Someone had brought Eric so much pain and this time these fools weren't getting away with the whole Soul society will experience first hand the wrath. "Your foolish toys were annoying me and it seems your force my hand your think that same technique that you defeated the impostor Kade Hiroshima....you thought it would hold me. I don't think so......your network is having detecting me because of my forbidden existence something the iramasha council did to my mother and to me but all in the past let's continue." The Yuudeshi network was having trouble because the shadow power the nanobots from Eric's destroyed body were malfunctioning. It said that Eric Zarathos was dead but really it was an deadly shadow magic technique called Dead Hollowing to have an dead body with nanobots and fool anything electronic. Unknown to all of them, Black Dahlia was drain them slowly the forbidden one was watching them sweat meaning the curse was working. Every time they attack their strength then it will weaken their powers & abilities however because Touma is human the curse is going to have a nasty effect on him.This the black dahlia curse will be prepared for any curse removal technique from Touma and Shadin now as a spider mark was growing on each warrior hands. Not only that Shadin has the amaterasu to worry about it was burning him at an much faster rate as the black fire was spreading along his arm. Joshua attacked Cero first using his shadow creating an shadow scythe but the demon thought he could do so much more. Joshua had all of Eric's powers then with his shadow power the forbidden iramasha used shadow blood gun shooting a fast shadow projectile at the quincy. The projectile hits him in the eye, Joshua wasn't done. The forbidden one summoned Zorin Blitz who with her scythe cut Cero's arm as blood was gushing everywhere as ten shadow blood demons started beating on him. Cero then started shadow chains wrapped around his neck. Zorin unleashed her full power then started with her magic piercing the quincy's ribcage hitting his left lung this quincy wasn't going to be down for long.
Kairaa appeared right behind Touma and got him within a headlock grabbing him then slamming him on the ground. Shadow chains formed around her legs and then the arrancar punched him hard in the face hurting his jaw. With the runes inside Joshua Iramasha, Kyokotsu was wondering what happen.......
All that was left was Shadin Yuudeshi, Joshua knew this wasn't going to easy the mad demon had a hard time with Yuu but the forbidden one wasn't backing down. "Now Beast of Karakura town...Let us have a battle without anymore of your games and tricks show me your power Shadin Yuudeshi prove to me your the beast." Now this seemed better one on one, Their were distractions but this was going to be a grand battle the forbidden one wanted Shadin to show him his power all of it. The forbidden one had a deadly plan in the works as Joshua's eyes glowing black the shadow magic was activated his forbidden iramasha powers were activated. The lords of shadows had granted him his dominant form over the shadows now the forbidden one wanted the see the beast. This seemed like he wanted him to wait but Joshua wasn't liking the waiting part so the demon attack with shadow bomb but the thing didn't hit Shadin it teleported somewhere else. Joshua was laughing because that shadow bomb wasn't meant for Shadin it was going to hit a random target. The forbidden iramasha was preparing an technique with his magic and then energy started coming out him as the forbidden one said. "Eternal Realm of Shadow hear the souls of the fallen.....Encase us in Eternal Darkness" Suddenly everything started turning black. Shadin felt that his eyes were burning as his senses were going haywire the darkness magic was coming onto his face the ziamichi felt blood swords not only attacking him but his ziamichi partner. While all this was going on the black dahlia markings upon the ground was turning red now their strength was being taken by it. Each warrior was going to feel a cold shiver down their spine it going to be pain for Shadin Yuudeshi. Because the black dahlia curse was making him feel cold separation anxiety as both him and his partner were feeling pain. The black dahlia was preparing the reiatsu drain system as each spiral marker came out for the ground siphon off energy from them. Joshua attacked with the shadow nemesis in complete mode bashing the ziamichi hard in the face and stomach.
Yuu Doragonraion, the Dragonne Queen of Competition
A cynical person, yet socially withdrawn to the point of being eccentric. One was someone; one continued to loathe one's own kind arrogantly. One who fell to darkness must make pilgrimage for the enlightenment. Her path is stained and broken, and she shall compete to restore a life.
Defiant of Expectations Time to punish the wicked invader! There will be no song to their tiding!
As Yuu was being teleported away from the battlefield, her gold phantom remains as some would suspect that it would linger for a while before disappearing since her summoner is no longer in the area. The unusual thing for a summoned entity to do is go off on its own and closer to the battlefield and changing into an array of equipment more freely than its corporeal counterpart. From the sky, it observes the battle as it unfolds more of its sequences. Its only focus was seem to be towards the enemies as she was expecting something. When noticing that Black Dahlia is growing in strength as to recover from the harsh backlash while summoning was in effect, the gold phantom immediately shoots down like a spear of light into the epicenter of battle, all in front of Shadin, Cero and Touma. Upon impact, an explosion of harmless light radiates throughout, giving various effects to the three and the invaders as an environmental benefit and hazard. For Shadin, it boosts his physical recovery, so he can heal faster and recover from fatigue faster, so the harshness of any shadow attack and curse are reduced by a quarter of their original strength. For Touma, he would feel more bold as his natural resistance and his Imagine Breaker are given better effectiveness against shadow-based abilities and curses like the Black Dahlia Curse. For Cero, his quincy arrows are enhanced by the sunlight of pure reishi that he can manipulate, so he can purify the Black Dahlia Curse. As for those who are invading like Eric, Joshua and his cohort, shadow abilities and curses along with demon summoned creatures will be degrading by the sunlight aura's searing heat, biting electrical outbursts and brilliant light. It starts off with a cut of their effectiveness by half of their original strength. All in all, the gold phantom was a product of the resonance between Shadin's desire to save a life and Yuu's faith put onto Shadin, and the result is Yuu's last attempt to 'rule the battlefield' before resigning to rest at the hospital. The sunlight aura will remain throughout the thread as along Shadin is still actively opposing those who sought to invade Karakura or to defeat him. Shadin can use Imaginary Computation and Heaven's Walker to reduce or to increase the potency of the aura, making Cero's and Touma's effectiveness better or worse. The gold phantom is no longer in sight after the creation of the sunlight aura that is both the bane of Joshua's shadow and minions while a boon to Shadin and his allies.
At the Hospital, she slightly wakes up on a cot while wheeled into a room by nurses. They were talking, but Yuu has trouble discerning what they are talking about. Upon arrival into the room, Yuu was transferred onto another bed, which has a large screen television mounted on a wall slightly higher than man height so the doctors would not bump their heads against it. Before the last nurse leaves, Yuu calls out to her, "Nurse." The nurse hears it and turns to Yuu, curious as to what is Yuu asking, "Give me live feed on Yuudeshi Network Security at the location of Shadin's battle. Orders from the First Shadow." The nurse replies, "But Ms. Doragonraion. You need rest and the noise of the battle would-" The nurse was cut off as Yuu replies, "It is less annoying than the cardiac rating system that keeps beeping when I'm clearly in good health to watch television." The nurse puts her hands on her hips, trying to assert authority, "I'm sorry, but Heaven's Canceler is on his way and he is going to make sure you recovered smoothly. No television until the doctor said it is alright." Yuu simply narrows her eyes with a stern gaze direcly at the nurse's eyes as she speaks more sternly, "Want to challenge the idea that I could miss the piece of observation, putting the team and the city in jeporady because you could not process a simple request?" The nurse tries to look strong, but fails due to prolonged exposure to reason as she calls the Yuudeshi Network to relay live feed of the battle to Yuu's room television. When the television is set to the live feed, Yuu can see her gold phantom standing in the sky as the demon was removing his two fingers, a sacrificial casting that relates to a curse. Yuu assumes it is the Black Dahlia that somehow survived the antidote and the alleviation magic created by the resonance between Yuu and Shadin. Mentally, she commands the gold phantom to perform a sunlight ability that results in the sunlight aura, "Boon of Spring." When seeing it in effect, Yuu smiles as she can feel that missing part of her strength is slowly returning and she can recover properly. However, she knows that the sunlight aura cannot effect her due to the distance and she is still vulnerable to the chance that the Black Dahlia could be coming after her to infect her once more.
While her resonance with Shadin is still strong, she is still connected with Eric's mind until Eric vanished, but with the arrival of Joshua, a renegade Iramasha, Yuu is uneasy as she telepathically tells Shadin as it goes to Cero and Toumas through Yuu's use of Shadin's telepathy ability to relay to Cero and Touma, "Damn. If only I lasted a little longer- What am I saying? Shadin, I'm at the hospital and use that aura I created through our gold phantom to benefit yourself with recovery and enhancement for Touma and Cero against Joshua, a Shadow Demon Iramasha that went rogue. The Boon of Spring will provide a detrimental limitation to his type and the Black Dahlia Curse, so make it quick to eliminate the curse. I feared one of four Black Dahlia Spiders would be coming after me again; Cero should have the capacity to take out the spider that is coming after me as his quincy arrows will benefit by striking far while remaining in the aura. Take out the spiders before they have a chance to latch onto anyone." Whether Shadin knew it or not, both Yuu and Shadin knows through Eric that the Black Dahlia Curse still has the potential to create an epidemic if left uncheck. Yuu wanted to not become a burden by being cursed and being responsible for spreading the curse, so taking out the curse is Yuu's hopeful priority given to Shadin and the others. However, a moment of distraction would also lead to exposure that with the situation, either one of them could not afford if they are in a bad spot. Yuu is courageous and a capable fighter, but she works more effectively as a teammate and her contributions to the team in this battle was to allow Shadin time to gather information on Eric and support her team through caution and benefit at the cost of the enemies' strength. As it was seem like a constant battle for the checkmate, Yuu cannot stop the feeling that she was just a Queen that is left out of play because of Eric, the knight. She lays in bed that was slightly raised so Yuu can see the television while laying back. In her bored mind, Yuu thinks, "I loathe this wall. So dismal in white."

"I took roleplaying and storytelling with a live-and-let-live attitude, thus the idea of a character doing something out-of-character would add more to the character than letting it stagnate into an archetype or a character. Here: A rapid change to a character must be met with an in-the-moment conflict. Ta-da! A rule to live by!"
In a sense, it seemed like everyone was doing their own thing to stop the demon known as Eric, the demon that had Shadin, Touma, and his own sole attention. It was not something that many should seek in the manner that he did, and for this Cero would make him pay. The price however was something that shifted within Cero as the ego and personality that he had was shifting with a much crueler one, the that he dove into his hollow abilities, the more it seemed to reach out to him. the hollow mask upon his face seemed to only grow more as it spread across his face at a constant rate now. It looked as if it slowly consumed his identity, even though Cero might be considered a elite and very strong, keeping what makes you strong in check is a challenge he still faces in times like this. The anger that he felt towards Eric, only magnified the other side's wishes to be let known and show that no mercy shall come to his kind. As things continued they seemed to only further collide and it left Cero, little to nothing of what to speak or say, he merely fought and attacked his enemies as he saw fit at the moment. the use of that special curse is what aggravated him the most and as such, when they approached him and his allies, whether his spiritual arm was reformed or not, it came down and swiped around under Cero's command to capture them all and if he was successful, then the arm would proceed to crush them under it's energy, and obliterate the curse as any effect of his arrows would. If they would otherwise proceed, he could only hope that Touma and Shadin could handle it as he made his moves against Eric.
It seemed however that his attacks would never have the effect that was indeed as Eric made his moves upon him with relative ease of sorts. With a single punch he did feel pain and a good deal of damage from taking Eric punch to his ribs, but he had a present for Eric as he made his move to grab a building and beat it into his face, using his high regeneration, his torso and chest returned to normal in a matter of moments but during that time Cero still felt the pain, so with no restraint he let out his pain in a scream and roar. Both of which we enhanced and given enough energy that should of blown him back from tossing the building, from there, a single cero charged out and blasted to make direct impact with him from only a small distance between them most likely, if it hit him it would exactly be strong but coming from some one like cero did make these kind of attacks a walk in the park for anyone at such distance. From there, the hollow mask would begin to rapidly expand to cover the entirety of his face. the energy that once formed the spiritual arm was now dispersing, but it flowed behind him along with other energy, to construct something much larger than it. Upon quick assemble, a hollow beast formed out of pure reitsu stood behind Cero however many of it's properties and attributes were odd. One could note the connection to him by the fact that they both wore the same complete hollow mask upon their faces. With Yuu's gift having a slight effect on him he let out a loud roar upon feeling it's presence, and this roar would echo for a long time even after he seemed to have stop and with the will of Cero allow things to occur under the Yuudeshi network and the barrier, gargantuas open up across the battle field and three Gillian class hollows revealed themselves. They seemed to answer the call of Cero as if he was a superior to them and as such, they would work under him for the time being, this was how a Hohl Arquero was recognized in the hollow hierarchy, a superior and nothing less than that.
Cero watched as Eric vanished, but out came another enemy that Cero saw and would terminate as such, an enemy of Karakura Central. As the Man rushed towards him, the three gillans would appear before his path and began charging ceros to only fire out upon his position and anything else that might be around him. As the man would shoot out a bullet of some sort of energy, he would dodge to the left, letting it fly past him and eventually go through the energy that made up his hollow being, the hollow being would be completely unaffected by the energy as it simply slide slightly with Cero's own motion. If Eric were to try or anyone else for that matter to inflict a curse or ability on Cero or the hollow avatar they would find that they were currently untargetable as their energy was was allowing them to exist on another level of space, separate from the influences of the environment around them, however this did also cut off Yuu's ability, but he was already fully capable of obliterating the curse that Eric toyed with. However, it seemed that another being came into play and they flashed out and with their scythe tried to cut into Cero's arm, however it would be found that the hand of the avatar blocked her attack, this hand was very similar to the one like previously and held a blade like shape as it blocked, but after the blow was made, it would turn back into a hand. As the chains came out to restrain Cero, the would reach out to him, but the would never hold him down as he was still separated from the environment and as such, the bindings. It was thn that Cero grew to the peak of his anger, nothing but blood would answer it as well, the eyes beyond the mask showing him holding little concern of how this will end.
With another hollow roar, Cero's sound energy grew out ward and formed 10 spheres of energy to smash into the demons that were summoned at Mach 2 speeds, and keep them at a distance as Cero maneuvered his hands as if he held his quincy bow. The avatar above him, standing at 50 meters tall, formed it's own quincy bow, a large variant of his own, of course.. This was when the fun began as arrows began to flash, as Cero made multiple flash steps to turn and maneuver 2 of these massive arrows at each enemy and 3 at the one that was summoned at first by Eric. Although these arrows were easily ten times the size of a normal one, they easily had the strength of 25 and one leaving anything out of the target obliterated on contact with them, and serve damage if they didn't act very quickly and carefully. In another motion having his avatar abandon the bow, he flashed in front of Joshua, and had the avatar try to snatch him and and raise him high up into the air and begin to try and crush him similar to the curse and using the properties of the energy after crushing him enough to utterly obliterate his soul, but actually, something else would occur if he was caught and held long enough. Cero would raise up his arm and open up his month wide, making the avatar follow suit. Hoping to put a permanent end to this he would then bite down and the avatar would proceed to bite into Joshua if everything went according to plan.
With rage still in his heart, the Hohl Arquero roared violently."DIE!"

It seems that either way he does trying to negate away the dahlia curse, the cancelling speed wasn't enough to be given enough time to fully erase the existence of it, since even if he gets to touch it, all Touma could do was to weaken it or take out a portion of its power before Eric gets to turn it powerful again. If he could try to attack a weak spot of Eric's and catch him off-guard, they might hold the upperhand and give Shadin a good chance to land a blow against the demon once and for all. His head shook, answering back to Yuu's plan, "I apologize, but i'll try to end this right now so that innocent lives won't be harmed!"
Clenching his fist tightly, Touma tries to resist the side effects coming from the attachments of the curse, but nonetheless, all he hoped was this fight to end. His eyes were burning with will, and the moment Kairaa appeared behind him, his natural instincts took its turn and was able to duck down to avoid himself away from the headlock. The natural insticts developed very long ago was all thanks to his misfortunes, always getting into many fights against deliquents and was pretty much in an instict to hide himself away from them and even being able to avoid something that moves as fast as sound because all of the encounters and consequences he got himself into many, many times in the past. To be short, his physical capability was very much naturally enhanced by all the occurances and bad lucks happening to him in everyday life, giving him a natural instinct to move away from dangerous situations and possible surprise attacks that may get him into trouble.
"Get out of my way!"
His fist made an uppercut against the likes of Kairaa, simply dealing a full damage against the likes of the demon since his Imagine Breaker can throughoutly destroy any supernatural durabilities set up by the demon and potentially weakening his powers. However, if the demon had a reaction fast enough, he may be able to step aside from his punch. Otherwise, if the uppercut works, his punch would may as well hurt him like a human could feel from an ordinary punch within a fight against deliquents. Running right past the demon when his punch may catch one off-guard from the pain where not an ordinary human could inflict, Touma moved at fast speed, above-average from his everyday-running from the delinquents and the merits from Shadin's genes within him, but his steps were imbalanced and his body doesn't seem to be walking too well within a straight line, but the will to end this fight would simply force himself to overcome the obstacle, at a cost that his body may take in some side effects from the curse no matter how much he struggles, at the very least, Touma still tries to run against the likes of Joshua.
Most of his strength was drained, and the Yuudeshi is going to land a full frontal punch against the Iramasha with all the might he could gather up, his movements were slow but his determination and the grip of his fist will never be slow and weak. "If you think you're great, then i'll have to break that illusion of yours first!"
His fist smashed itself foward against Joshua's face, hopefully leaving all the damage that can be given to the demon iramasha and weaken or if possible, potentially destroying all of the black dahlia curse once and for all with the use of Imagine Breaker, while leaving a good deal of damage against Joshua's face. If missed his target, during his fall after the attempt to punch Joshua right in the face, the Yuudeshi would took a turn around and hopefully, landing a smash right against the iramasha's neck. He was already weak from all the might he gathered up for one ending, and eventually, falling down against the earth of the city with his eyes still open, gaping and screaming to close itself with all the strength that has left Touma, but struggling to stand up at all cost. Hopefully, his Imagine Breaker can at least do something that he can't do.
