Update 2.12 - WoB 8th Anniversary (Maelstrom of Time)
At the crack of dawn, as the humans of Kyoto City prepared themselves for their daily activities, the entirety of the city was abruptly shaken by a massive earthquake. Officials, baffled by the unexpected catastrophe, try to keep order in the streets as the civilians begin to panic. Glowing fractures begin to take shape in various places, invisible to the average human. Alleyways, the street, even the sky itself becomes cracked. From within the anomalies, creatures and villains thought long defeated start clawing their way out to invade Kyoto City once again. The Soul Society scrambles in a mad panic as reports of zombies, togabito and other creatures invading Kyoto City begin pouring in!
A veteran Shinigami named Yoshio Shimizu nervously confesses that the disaster is his fault. His Bankai, gifted with the ability to look through time, requires great care in use to avoid damaging the space-time continuum. Caught up in the zeal of attaining new heights, he carelessly overused his power during the annual equinox, when the realms are drawn close together, and the boundaries holding them together are strained. Holes were ripped open to the moments in the past he visited, and remnants from times long past have come pouring through them. Faced with impending doom, it's up to Shinigami and Hollow alike to face down the hordes of enemies and beat them back to where they came from!
