actually, I'd say that's not true due to the fuckawesome fight that was bambietta versus komamura.
>>
>>100278835
but it was damn fast
mask has garnered too much attention but its just to show how renji has powered up

I wanted more Dangai José action ;_;
and Bambi doing a full angel thing
>>
>>100279252
Komamura should have fought Mask instead, but both characters were thrown aside to resolve largely inconsequential battles, like Unohana.
>>
>>100279331
also Komamura crumbled apart too far from VRs offices

would've been more awesome if he did rush to them to obliterate the place, and when swinging the sword at the place suddenly he's run out of fuel

just like when Yamamoto was going to use Bankai again and suddenly poof no fire, kthxbye Bankai.


Now, talking about the Bankai, now that Bach has it, doesn't that 'cripple' his power?, or at least make him unable to use his full Angel mode? like the other SRs, stolen Bankai crippled their power but the shinigami were crippled even more from the lack of it, making fights less of a hassle/unpredictable situation.

If Bach will go Angel (which... he must at some point) he has to get rid of Yama's Bankai, which the now gone Yama can't reabsorb with Hollow viral pill. Unless for some reason he is willing to bestow it to Ichigo. Or Ishida. Or he knows he can't get rid of the Bankai now that Yama's gone, so instead he'll be keeping it knowing he can't go Angel, and gave his very own Angel mode to Ishida, making Bach subboss and Ishida final boss.
>>
>>100279716
I believe that Yhwach doesn't have or need the Final Quincy Form, because he's already at the top of a Quincy's power. The Letzt Stil and Vollstandig are not normal powerups in the sense that they give a random boost of power, they are a shortcut to acquiring the maximum control over reishi a Quincy can attain. Yhwach is seen transforming or materializing matter at will, as well as shooting arrows without a bow or silver cross, so the Vollstandig would probably give him a much lower boost that it would to a less experienced Quincy.
>>
I was playing osu! just now, and when I missed a note on an easy song, I thought "Well, I can improve on my score later on". I immediately thought of Mayuri and his speech about perfection. It's not the first similarity either... /blog

>>100279716
I think that Bach will just throw the unsealed Bankai at Ichigo, making it explode furiously like in the winter war.
>>
>>100279716
Ishida is going to absorb Bach

>>
>>100279955
makes me think about the Sklaverei thing
Kirge did it while Angel, while Tensa Zangetsu apparently did it with no Crown/Wings at all.

Maybe the wings/crown are just like a 'posession' from Bach for attaining this maximum control, and maybe Bach has actual wings or a ridiculous non-human form with physical wings and a physical crown.

I don't know man I'm too mushroomed right now, too stoked and shit

maybe he just wants it to heat VRs office

maybe he actually wants to use it to defrost the offices, maybe they are frozen for a reason and after thawing it, it will separate from ground and ascend to the royal palace, to take its rightful place.

These passed few arcs have been pretty disappointing. Hell, it all has really. Don't even know why I'm still reading it. Fuck me. Renji and Rukia are finally useful though, so there's that. They're long overdo for kicking some ass. Any word on when chad becomes useful? He's been sitting on the side lines for, what, thirteen years now? He fought off a few guys, but they were all trash so it wasn't too impressive.
Why are the new quency powers to fucking retarded? None of them have anything to do with shooting arrows. The luchadore had me the most confused. He gets more powerful when he gets cheered on? What kind of sense does that make?

Anyone know when hell's going to be brought back up again? It was pretty interesting back in the beginning. Why can't soul society throw criminals into hell, instead of locking in them prison or killing them?
>>
>>100280504
>Anyone know when hell's going to be brought back up again

I wonder how the loli was able to handle his spiritual pressure without being crushed. Back when spiritual pressure was worth its weight in salt, it actually meant something.

She's a vice captain, and they tend to be able to withstand the pressure of their captains, especially if they've been together for a long time.

>>100280728
>implying Niggerstream will get it out this soon
They are always fucking late. Like, at least 3 hours after Mangapanda.

They used to be the first, then they got their asses C&D'd which made them first stop storing the last 5 chapters but instead only the last one (which I wonder why is Mangapanda still alive considering they're hosting THE WHOLE THING) and then they decided 'dropping the big 3' for a while.

Then they suddenly said fuck it, started with Big 3 again, but on the condition of releasing it after anyone else did it, or something like that.
>>
>>100280767
his loss there now makes a fuckton more sense.
Hell, Mask was pretty fucking strong even before ANY powerups, and it's likely he powered up before facing renji there.
>>
>>100280785
this doesn't work for a character that had several heart-wrenching chapters devoted to him unlocking hidden potential with a cliffhanger ending in this very arc.
>>
>>100280874
Kenpachi will be back.

Heck, he might even be the one to kill Yhwach. None of the other Stern Ritter seem right for him, except maybe Haschwaldt, and Ichigo will probably get him.

Life and death have no convetional meaning in Bleach. The soul is alive and is immortal because of reincarnation unless Quincies happen. The only ones who care about the physical body are the humans, because they can't see farther. The souls in Soul Society aren't some arbitraly christian soul concept. They are fully functional conscious beings with feelings and thoughts. They can even fucking procreate. Death is nothing but a fucking dimensional shift in Bleach. That's what life does. It just shifts between SS and Earth. It's eternal and infite.
>>
>>100282204
and HM/Hell, dont forget those
there was this image around representing the flow of souls
>>
>>100282196
how did he die in the last week?
>>
>>100282204
Not true, there's true death if you die in the spirit world. Also being reborn on earth mean your brain is fully brainwhased first, which is the same as death since you have to relearn how to breathe and shit.
>>
>>100282204
When a human dies they become a plus and hollows killed by a zanpakuto are purified and become pluses again.

That doesn't mean that spirits can't die.
>>
>>100282223
Yeah, those too. Probably Hell is the closest to "death" as we know it. You just end up being bones and soil on the ground of the lowest level eventually. If that's canon.
>>
>>100282204
you've missed something important
humans have a fundamental different spiritual nature than their souls, which is why hybrids even exist.
>>
I'm surprised Kubo didn't give us a villain whose power is to not lose memory when being rebirthed. Would be cool and cliche, kind of like Shaka in Saint Seiya, and we all know Kubo loves saint seiya.
>>
>>100282264
If that was the explanation in the hell movie then it isn't cannon.

Kubo helps design characters and gives some input into movies and filler but only what happens in the manga is canon unless stated otherwise.
>>
>>100282291
We still don't have any idea what the spirit king is. Could be something like that.
>>
>>100282281
>which is why hybrids even exist

Do they, really?

Ichigo turned out to be Quincy. Before we though it's the human part, but looking at it again, "Quincy" is just Yhwach's blood, and power, whatever he is. It's not even a human component in the humans themselves. As for the Fullbringers, they just have a small ammount of diluted Hollow power that manfests in a strange way. Maybe the same thing would happen to a soul born in SS the same way.
>>
>>100282249
I bet he can't return to his physical body
it is not that 'he is too powerful that would bend apart the real world so he can't return to it'

he is just too powerful or something is different with his soul that he can't get back into his body, effectively making him 'dead'
>>
>>100282346
Urahara had to specifically force Isshin to become a shinigami/human hybrid to counter the quincy/hollow side of masaki.

So yes, humans are seperate from quincy, and are something unique.
>>
>>100282318
A spirit whose power is to retain it's powerlevel and sanity after reincarnation? So he just kept accumulating more and more power through his cycles.

Makes sense.
>>
>>100282301
It's the opposite. In Japan, since the author is the holder of the copyrights, everything is "canon" unless stated otherwise. But their canon definition is looser than USA because their fan don't have mutliple timeline bullshit to deal with to begin with so there's no big deal about some what if scenarios from time to time.
>>
>>100282387
Kubo ought to explain the exact nature of these things one day. It feels like he's just pulling it out of his ass as he needs it.
>>
>>100282381
like, his soul is now insanely rich/dense that going to the human world would bring a fuck ton of hollows (perhaps all hollows roaming the earth or something) and not only that but his body now can't contain his soul

so Kon will take on his body forever and Ichigo will have no option but to stay at SS

>hostile
he wasn't hostile at all, he was sad, and felt that people would get the wrong idea if he kept exec producer credit.

Besides, the manga/anime storyline would make no sense if the movies are part of them.

Kubo still read them and create the chara design for them. He also always commented positively about them, even if it's marketing, it still means they are approved by the author in their own right.

yes and no, because things can be changed
for instance, it established that seeking to bond with your zanpakuto more causes this weird powerup and insanity

but then, ooh, let's see, Ichigo did it no prob. And no one thought it strange.

and Komamura has an unusually strong bond with his zanpakuto, and all it does is let him share damage and regenerate.

>The battle between Renji and Mask De Masculine is still ongoing. Flashback to Renji training at the Soul King's palace, at Osho's training grounds. Osho seems to say that, only when you call the Zanpakuto by its correct name, then you will be able to wield its greatest power. Renji activates Bankai and its name is different from before. Its appearance also changed. Renji uses a new technique and seemingly kills Mask once and for all.

This makes shikai absolutely pointless for Soifon and Yumichika's conscious decision to gimp himself even more hilarious

If a zanpakutou will respond to whatever nickname or variable release command you throw at--what's the point of even making a clear delineation of shikai as an achievement for fodder Shinigami to strive for?

Draw sword. Butcher name. Pump reiatsu. Win.

Really, Kubo?

Kinda shits on the whole notion of zanpakutou pride and meditating with your sword if you can just force the power out.

You spend all that time training for bankai and your sword still isn't honest with you...

They don't. The name they use is given by the sword itself. The sword probably doesn't give its full name first because plot.

soifon's bankai is jakuho raikoben when most people were expecting something more predictable like oosuzumebachi

Yeah but Yumishika may have a tsudere relation with its sword, and it probably agrees with the trick at some degree. He may also have quite a bond with his sword, we don't knows. I doubt it would work with any other sword.

So his bankai is a like a giant monkey hand that's really strong, and a blade with a snake tail that can burn things.

Uh. How is this an UPGRADE? Before it was a giant whip that shot laser beams, could reform endlessly, could divide and attack from every single angle possible and had range. I mean sure, it couldn't kill shit but i assumed that was because renji himself was shit, not because the bankai was.

Now it looks like a generic "when i use bankai i become stronger" bankai.

Fuck this shit. Bleach is a manga that does not allow upgrades for their characters. It isn't like Naruto where people can learn new jutsus.

They have their shikai and their bankai and they have to fight and deal with it. This is a huge problem for a power shonen like this and Kubo already noticed it. So he come up with such a shitty asspul?

Seriously, this is forced and ridiculous. Bleach would be much more interesting if powerups weren't as forced and ridiculous and if the characters used more strategy in combat instead of just "i have to be stronger than this guy!!!!".

So explain this to me. Are Zanpakuto just parts of the shinigami and not actually separate beings with their own personalities? Ichigo "accepted" that his was just part of him, but everyone else is walking around thinking their sword is kind of a separate being or something and being denied full power because they give their swords personalities or some shit.

It is amazing how Tite is a hack. Besides changing the defaul shikai and bankai of the characters, to make the characters look stronger he has to humiliate other characters that are way more experienced, interesting and smart.

No religious references thus far, though there are a few pop culture references none of them seem to tie with any particular theme, or power.

This powe level over technique bullshit is so bad, that there are characters that are damaged by that.

A good example? Komamura.

Komamura DEPENDS on the fact that people around him are not god-like strong and fast. The entire point of the character is brute force. But what's the point of having a giant as your bankai if everyone else has the strength of a giant and the speed of The Flash? Every time Komamura uses his bankai we just think "Alright, was I supposed to be impressed?".

People in Bleach are destroying landscapes with a single blow coming from their swords and running at the speed of light, so a giant samurai is not impressive at all. Characters that depends on brute force in shonens like Bleach are pretty fucking damaged.

Regular character: Special technique + super speed + god-like strength

Melee strong characters: god-like strength

It's a shame.

To be honest I always felt guys like Komamura only existed to job, which is why they got such a shit deal that appears strong but completely isn't once you get meta about it.

I mean even his personality reeks of a jobber. He's like General Choutou. Both are big men who can only shout loudly and swing their weapons real hard, but their stats are absolute shit compared to kids way tinier than they are. Both end up beating someone while they are fleeing. Both of them are completely taken out of the ensuing battlefield after.

It's like Bleach copied Kingdom or some shit, but that would mean Kubo has actually read a manga that shows real choreography and I refuse to believe that.

The special TEMPORARY asspul does not count. It is temporary and it basically kills him.

We wouldn't even be having this talk if Dangai Josh was his actual bankai.

Normal Komamura could handle most of the captains except maybe mayuri soi fon and mayuri yamamoto

But if he gets a hit on anyone they are going down

>>100289911
He would lose to half the captains. That's shit enough. At most he picks on the vizards and kids.

Kensei would blow his entire bankai with a single strike.

Byakuya would render his bankai useless.

Kenpachi...do I even have to say anything?

I don't know about Shunsui and Shinji and Unohana.

Hitsugaya would be humiliated.

I don't count those people, and neither should you. Fodder only matters in a story that utilizes them properly, and it has never mattered in Bleach.

Even Naruto does a better job, and they fail horribly.

>>100290019
But Yamato isn't a simple katana... Aren't summoned swords and dimensional slashes (Vergil's teleportation too I think) part of its power? It could be an interesting zanpakutou.

He dun it with shikai he can dun with bankai as well.

What's the difference between a Jobber and a Fodder?

I thought you were talking about the appearance of that zanp, not its powers.

Wasn't that already done in Spirits Are Forever With You? But in that case the summoned blades were invisible.

really half

Yamamoto Soi Fon Rose Unohana Shinji Byakuya Shunsui Kensei Hitsugaya Zaraki Mayuri Ukitake

of those captains only Yamamoto Soi Fon and Mayuri have shown techniques that could kill Komamura

Yamamotos bankai
Soi fon Shikai relys on komamura not being able to track and react
Mayuris Poisons relys on komamura coming into range which he doesnt have to

Komamura, Renji and Shinji are jobbers.

This guy is a fodder. According to my understanding, fodders are just characters that were created to be defeated/die once to make another character look strong whilst jobbers are characters that are always jobbing.
>>
>>100290440
Hmm, you mean Azashiro's Shikai? In a way, yeah I can see that. But the full package would be too atractive.
>>
>>100290454
unohana would murder him any day of the week.

>>100290521
I remember when D-Roy appeared during the first chapters and was hyped as fuck. Then Kubo killed him in 2 chapters years later.
>>
>>100290454
You actually think Komamura at any point in time can beat Zaraki or Shunsui or Unohana?

Are you for fucking real? How can one man read children's comics so wrong?

Fodder is as you said, created to be defeated.

Except for Hitsugaya and maybe Ukitake, every captain can easily kill Komamura. Maybe not Rose.

holy shit really

you think kenseis bankai is stronger than resurrection tousen los nueve aspectos

Byakuya couldnt even take a piece out of yammys face withhis bankai

Kenpachi this assumes that kenpachi just has free reign to attack komamura or his bankai without anyone attacking back

You know that they wouldn't attack just once, right? He could give several punches, just like Tosen was going to use his ability more than once if he didn't get killed by 69.

And byakuya could easily disassemble Kokujou Tengen Myou-oh and kill it from the inside. And I'm not even mentioning all the times they would attack Komamura himself instead of focusing on his bankai.
>>
>>100290706
They don't need to attack Komamura himself, he takes the same damage his Bankai does, remember? Take it apart and you take him apart.

ftfy

>>100290564
lets see here

shunsuis saving grace is his shikai he has yet to show any strength or durability feats

in karakura town where he showed all of what hes capable of so far

he took one cero
and some attacks from starrks swords which have there damage limited or altered depending on what color is called
and an attack from aizen

Komamura was hit across karakura town
kicked by tousen
hit by los nueve aspectos
Cut twice by aizen

shunsui has no strength feats
and his speed is based on two things that he can move over long distances in soul society arc and that he can keep up with starrk

And none of this shows that he would outright destroy komamura

You cant tell with kenpachi or uonhana really both of them have different philosophys on combat

Unohana dominated kenpachi with speed and skill until kenpachi overwhelmed her with strength

unohana and kenpachis capabilitys in this fight relys on them being around reusrrection tousen and aizen in terms of strength

And neither of them has shown to have that kind of strength

So.

Let me get this straight.

Every Bankai.

Actually has two levels? Like a SS3 type deal. "And this... Is... to go... even further beyond!"

What's with kubo not allowing the main character to use kido?
>>
>>100291566
hehe

>>100291380

>>100291599
No, just the ones that didn't like the person using them. Ichigo wasn't actually using his Bankai at all.
>>
>>100291566
>Does anybody actually give a shit about Renji?

I do.
>>
>>100291599

No, it's more like Renji thought he sucked so his bankai reflected his inner feelings.
>>
>>100291599
Jesus. No. Fuck.
You people are retarded.
>>
>>100291599
Yes. Because it is impossible to give shonen-like powerups for characters in Bleach without altering their default zanpakutos.

They could give them new techniques, but that doesn't sell toys and that doesn't change the character's look...
>>
>>100291600

Yes I do Mask also made it pretty entertaining.

>>100291599
No
>>
>>100291599
Nope, just Renji own bankai decided Renji is immature as a warrior to give him his full name.

>>100291382
The manga is great, the anime is heavily censored with cut content due to being broadcasted on NHK, and it's low budget CG.

/a/ doesn't hate Kingdom, but it's definitely not a popular manga. There's usually 1-3 threads ranging from 20-150 posts each every Thursday and Sunday because the scanlators are awesome and release 3 chapters twice a week.

I also heard (can't confirm) that in Japan Kingdom is regarded as the One Piece of seinen. They both do have pretty crazy looking faces admittedly, and out of proportion bodies, yet managing to make it work.

It also starts out kinda slow like One Piece as well. The excitement really ramps up in both series after a certain point.

Absolutely. I'd even go as far to say that the author's coloring choices makes black and white look much better than his color pages.

I don't know why he fucking chooses to, but it's like the guy just puts some crayolas in a shoebox and picks one out.

Hmm, this is a general, I better make him stand out. ORANGE IT IS.

1 He didn't come up with it now, it was established 6 years ago
2 Strategy to win all fights with all the characters ever? Get serious, that shit only works with one or two characters at best AT A TIME. You can't introduce 10 characters who all win by being intellectual masterminds when it isn't in their character to begin with and definitely not in the same arc.
3 There are plenty of ability users who get their wins by being smart.
>>100288245
Knowing the name > not knowing the name. Mastering the Bankai also causes change.
>>100288382
How ironic that despite your claim Ichigo has only won one (maybe two) fight(s) in the entire series by using a Getsuga Tenshou.
I bet you can't even tell which one it was.
>>
>>100291599
No. Ichigo was being fooled by his quincy powers, and Renji was being fooled by his Shinigami powers.
