They were outside in the middle of the camp. A crowd had gathered around them, forming a giant ring around the Soul Reaper and Demon. Kenta stood on the far side, scowling at Ichigo, who stood on the other. The people surrounding them were in an uproar. Angry shouts could be heard everywhere.

"Kill that Soul Reaper!"

"Let's see his blood!"

Rukia, who stood next to Akira and Uryu, narrowed her eyes at all the commotion.

Ungrateful fools! Ichigo came here to help them and in return they treat him like this!?

Akria bit her lip. She anxiously looked from one fighter to another.

"I don't like this," She said. "I'm worried,"

"Worried for whom exactly?" Uryu asked.

"Both," She answered, "Ichigo is a guest here, he shouldn't have to go through this. But Kenta is one of our strongest fighters, we can't afford to lose him,"

"Don't worry," Rukia spoke up, "Ichigo doesn't like to kill. He'll defeat Kenta, but he won't kill him." Akira glanced over at Rukia.

"Are you so sure he'll win?" She asked. Rukia smirked.

"I can guarantee this fight won't last longer than two minutes,"


Kenta smirked at Ichigo.

"Well, are you ready Soul Reaper?" He asked.

"I don't even want to do this. But it looks like your gonna keep bitching about it if I don't. So let's just get this over with," Ichigo replied. Kenta scowled.

"You're attitude is really starting to piss me off," He growled. Ichigo smirked.

"Good," He replied. Kenta gritted his teeth.

"Bastard. Alright, let's do this," He bent over and grabbed a large object wrapped in cloth that lay at his feet. Picking it up, he tore the cloth off. As the fabric fell away Ichigo's eyes widened slightly. Kenta was now grasping a large sword in his hands. But it was a very unique sword. There was a long chain attached to the bottom. At the other end of the chain was a large spiked ball. Kenta grabbed the chain and hoisted the ball into the air. He smirked.

"Heh, are you still so confident Soul Reaper?" Ichigo narrowed his eyes. Reaching up with his hand he grabbed the hilt of his Zanpakuto. The cloth fell away from the blade as Ichigo drew his sword. The black blade gleamed in the light.

"Well, that's an interesting looking Zanpakuto. I can't wait to see what it does,"

"I'm sorry," Ichigo said, "But I don't want to waste time fighting you. The only reason I stayed in this world was to fight Akane. I don't feel like beating the crap out of weaklings," Kenta scowled.

"You Bastard. You shouldn't be so arrogant. I'll kill you, and send your friends packing,"


"I don't like this," Akira repeated as she watched the two glare at each other.

"Calm yourself Akira. This fight will be over soon." A new voice said. Akira's head turned sharply to her right.

"Grandfather!?" She exclaimed. Rukia looked at the old man.

"You think Ichigo's will win too, Mr…" She trailed off.

"Jin," The man replied. "And yes, I have a feeling that young Ichigo will defeat Kenta very easily,"

"But Kenta's one of the strongest fighters we have," Akira stated. "What do you mean he'll easily loose?" Jin turned to watch the two fighters.

"Just watch…" He said.


Ichigo, held his Zanpakuto out in front of him. Kenta grinned.

"Alright let's go!" He suddenly started spinning the mace around on the chain, "Ichigo Kurosaki!" The demon rushed at Ichigo, who stood his ground. Smirking, Kenta threw the mace at Ichigo. The weapon flew at him. Ichigo narrowed his eyes. He swung his blade upwards. The sword crashed into the mace and deflected it. Suddenly Kenta smirked.

"Ha fell for it!" He was suddenly before Ichigo, who still had his blade up in the air. Ichigo's eyes widened.

"Got you!" Kenta swung his bade upward. Ichigo quickly jumped away. The blade caught the fabric on his torso tearing it a bit. Ichigo narrowed his eyes as his feet hit the ground.

Guess he's not a complete loser after all.

Kenta smirked.

"Heh, nice moves," The mace started spinning again. "But you're gonna have to do better!" The mace flew at Ichigo. Quickly Ichigo sidestepped and the weapon flew past him. Kenta swung his arm and brought the mace back to him. He began to swing it over his head.

"Die!" The mace once again headed for Ichigo. Ichigo narrowed his eyes.


Kenta's eyes widened.

"What the…" Ichigo tightened his grip on the mace's chain. He smirked.

"You don't mind if I take this do you?" He asked. Kenta scowled.

"Damn it! No one's ever done that before!" Suddenly Ichigo yanked on the chain. Eye's wide Kenta flew forward. Ichigo slashed with Zangestu. A large gash appeared on the demon's chest. Coughing, the demon fell to his knees. Ichigo stood over him.

"Ready to give up?" He asked. Kenta gritted his teeth.

"Damn it! You bastard! I'm not going out so easily."

"That's a pretty deep cut, you should just throw in the towel," Ichigo replied.

"Shut up!"

"Don't be a dumbass!" Ichigo shouted, "It's over!" Kenta clenched his fists.

"I…said…NO!" Lighting suddenly surrounded the demon. Ichigo jumped back as the blue sparks flew off the demon's body. Ichigo narrowed his eyes.

I'd almost forgotten about the demon powers. Naiyou's can summon lighting and manipulate matter. No wonder he's able to use that mace thing so well.

Kenta stood up slowly. His eyes blazed at Ichigo. Lighting danced off him and shot into the sky.

"I will not lose. I will not lose. You Soul Reapers… You're the reasons we're stuck in this world. You're the reason we were enslaved by Hitokagai. I will not lose. I WON'T LOSE!" Suddenly he swung the mace over his head. The mace began to turn blue as electricity surged through it. Kenta glared at Ichigo, his eyes blazing.

"I'll kill you! SOUL REAPER!" He threw the mace at Ichigo. The weapon flew at him. Ichigo narrowed his eyes.

Damn it!

He held up Zangestu. The mace crashed into it. There was a huge explosion. Dust and dirt flew everywhere. Slowly the dust started to settle. Kenta stood in the arena. His hand outstretched and the chain leading into a patch of smoke, where Ichigo had been. Blood was slowly dripping from his wound. Kenta stared at the patch of smoke where the Soul Reaper stood.

"Damn Soul Reaper…" He spat. Suddenly something exploded out of the smoke.


Kenta's eyes widened. His mace had crashed into his stomach. Blood sprayed everywhere. Slowly the demon began to fall back.

"…What…?" He gasped. The demon hit the ground, eyes closing. The crowd, eyes wide turned their head. The smoke began to dissipate. When it cleared Ichigo stood there. A moon shield spinning in his hands. Ichigo sighed and stopped spinning his sword. He turned his head to look at the fallen demon.

"You're stuck in this world because you killed innocent people. If you're angry at Akane and Kagai for hurting the demons, fight them, not me. I don't have time for a pain in the ass like you" He said as he paced Zangestu on his back.
