Ukitake and Kyoraku's fight against Stark is interrupted by unexpected arrivals.Nice fingernails there, big guy.Summary:After “firing” a cero to drive back Stark, Ukitake states that Stark is getting help from Lilinette, then he will be giving help to Kyoraku. Kyoraku notes that he'll have to use bankai eventually, but Ukitake tells Kyoraku not to use his bankai where anyone can see. Stark starts wondering how Ukitake is able to fire a cero, and Ukitake tells Stark to keep shooting to find out. After firing and being fired upon three times, Stark figures out that Ukitake is absorbing the cero using one of his swords and firing it back out with the other. Stark wants to see what happens if he fires 1000 shots at Ukitake at once, but he is forced to defend when Kyoraku sneak attacks from behind.Suddenly, a garganta (hollow inter-dimensional portal) appears nearby and Wonderweiss steps out of the portal followed by a gigantic creature.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hey it's Wonderweiss! I completely forgot about this guy, but here his is leading some gigantic creature into the battlefield. It seems that Kubo doesn't think the Ukitake + Kyoraku vs. Stark battle is interesting enough, so here comes some more characters. I don't think there are any named arrancars left to appear in the battle, but Kubo can always pull out a character from nowhere. Wonderweiss is not ranked but he is supposed to have Espada-level powers, and the giant monster behind him may be even tougher given how it has Menos masks as finger nails. Hopefully the new arrivals will be threatening enough to make Ukitake and Kyoraku use their bankais that they don't want anyone to see. They had better not be something as boring as Soifon's bazooka.
