TODAY IS THE DAY
any scans yet?
where the fuck is this chapter
spoilers should be available in one hour at least.
Renji suplexes Mustache Man into Submission. James tags in for Mustache Man and initiates Space Jam
we had spoilers already
nigga you best elaborate
Those spoilers are nowhere to be found, but said the obvious that Renji defeats Mask and then As Nodt shows up where Rukia is healing Kensei and Rose.
Renji awakens a new mode call Quohaku
Rukia avoids death by becoming the strawberry
Ichigo is showing going fast
Soul society starts moving to the beat
Mask is kill
confirmed for being Ichigo's uncle or something
Nuburo is out.
Nothing has actually happened lately. The only thing moving the story along were asspulls, now we're getting HM style boss fights of "wow that attack had no effect!"
actually, I'd say that's not true due to the fuckawesome fight that was bambietta versus komamura.
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
Komamura should have fought Mask instead, but both characters were thrown aside to resolve largely inconsequential battles, like Unohana.
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.
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
I think that Bach will just throw the unsealed Bankai at Ichigo, making it explode furiously like in the winter war.
Ishida is going to absorb Bach
Waiting for the chapter is suffering, even when it's obvious what's going to happen and how short it'll be.
What? It's been more like
>They attack Mask
>It's super effective!
>Mask used James
>Mask regains 999 hp
>Mask uses Star Beam
>x is unconscious
Don't lose hope anon, m-maybe we will see Rukia...
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
you know, that fucking cold
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.
>We'll never see Ken again, let alone his bankai
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?
>Anyone know when hell's going to be brought back up again
Any plans Kubo had for Hell got scrapped because of the fourth movie.
Renji will be useful against this one dude, and will immediately get his shit pushed in by the next quincy nazi.
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 never really done another other than just stand on the side cheering ken on, or being some form of shitty comic relief.
don't underestimate her
even folks in the 11th squad fear her
just like they feared/respected Unohana
Oh, he probably means Kenpachi.
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.
RENJI CONFIRMED NOT JOBBER
GODDAMMIT! THE WAIT AND THIS ANTICIPATION IS FUCKING KILLING ME! HURRY THE FUCK UP NIGGASTREAM!
I think Kubo actually said the reverse
he wanted to do a hell arc, but had pretty much already decided he couldn't work that in, that's why he let them do the hell movie
>renji not jobbing
Should've made it believable man.
L i t e r a l l y who?
Maybe you are in the wrong manga, is like the people who asked for "tatsuki" the past week.
>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.
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.
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.
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.
So... No chapter this week?
then some months lathr
no its not
you should know by now most people in this thread sit with a tab open, refreshing it every couople of minutes.
Even so, waterpanda's translations are fucking unbearable. Niggastream's are shit too but it's the lesser of two evils. I also have a Viz Media Jump subscription to get the best translation, but it means having to wait for several days later. Still, it's worth getting actual great translations with scans that don't look like used toilet paper.
wow, way to 'troll' us. what an intelligent, well thought out prank. 0/10 would not rage again.
Renji also lost because he couldn't even use his bankai and was stuck with his shitty shikai.
Nor the next week, or the week after that. Abandon all hope, or else join us in our wait... forever.
have you seen Toofsy with a Mangapanda emblem on his coat?
or Mask with the emblem on his belt?
>let them do the hell movie
If by letting them you mean them taking his story and fucking it to hell, then yeah, he let them.
>I am Bulgaria
well shit son. No arguing there.
that and he was already hit by Byakuya's bankai
and, as clearly shown later, Mask is a fucking ballet dancer, lighter on his feet than fucking yoruichi
Of course. /a/ keeps reposting them in almost every Bleach thread. It's because of bullshit like that that I refuse to give hits to mangapanda's website.
Yes, I mean him working with them to start writing a hell movie, because he knew he wasn't going to do it in the manga.
How are the official translations? I heard a lot of the early chapters were translated pretty poorly, which messed with a lot of foreshadowing.
This form of brainwashing should be illegal.
Those are false rumors. The translations are great and the scanning quality looks crystal clear. If you like, I can post a few screencaps to show you what it looks like.
Oh, no. My bad. Wrote that out pretty poorly. I meant that I heard a lot of the early fan translations were pretty shit. Are the official ones any better?
Eh, too bad Ju-Ni doesn't do scans anymore. Unless I'm mistaken.
They are massively better. You won't have to deal with any of this bullshit.
Ju-Ni quit scanning a LONG time ago.
WHERE IS THE CHAPTER?
Ichigo will be then one to fuse ZnT into his blade.
Komamura should have picked up his sword with his mouth so that he can be a giant dog/wolf with a sword
I CANT WAIT ANYMORE!!!!
you will never have a sweet coffin
It's up my ass.
You wanna dig for it?
OP is out
another 2 hours for Blich
>Ichigo is showing going fast
>Sasuke dies pathetically, being owned yet again by one of his superiors and having accomplished nothing
As much as I want it to end this way, that's not what's going to happen.
>share name with Vandenreich member
>he probably wont do anything at all
>probably wont even get to fight with anyone
>will likely just die off-panel to someone shitty
Nobody cares Nanana.
are you the Nanana or something like that guy?
Perhaps he got blasted with some Rose music bankai Reggae
Yes. And everybody cares.
Seriously though he's just gonna die off-panel I'm sure if it. Kenpachi will probably just walk through and end up with 40,000 Vandenreich on his sword this time and Nanana will be there.
lab member pls put this in site
What the hell is this? Why?
are you a profit?
>hero never dies
>ichigo is currently dead
>ishida is alive
>ishida is Bleach's hero
ichigo's not dead
also I swear that everytime I refresh http://www.mangapanda.com/bleach/564/2 and it takes a second more while loading my heart skips or something
>Rukia avoids death by becoming the strawberry
take that Hichihime
Better late than never?
镜头转回恋次接受灵王殿和尚的特训 和尚似乎说：叫对斩魄刀的名字 才能发挥斩魄刀最大威力（似乎是这个意思 可能不准确 毕竟心哥日语废）
恋次卍解 卍解的名字跟原来不太一样了 卍解的形态也不一样 刀柄拖着长长的蛇尾 另一侧有巨大的狒狒臂
Apparently there's an explanation about the 'Royal training' they received?
PLEASE MORE BRIAN BLESSED
Yeah. Looks like it's all just Renji's battle, but he finishes the wrestler.
just release the god damn chapter already
if for no other reason than yamamoto being so fucking adamant about not relying on human ichigo for help
if he was dead, he'd be drafted.
No doubt the monks' training
you know, the one he had privately with rukia and renji
... the special training was operation dickbridge wasn't it.
>Love plays with a big star fried chicken fighting continues
he wasn't then
but he is now
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.
and HM/Hell, dont forget those
there was this image around representing the flow of souls
how did he die in the last week?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We still don't have any idea what the spirit king is. Could be something like that.
>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.
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'
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
I am the hub of the Wheel, the origin of all Life, the devourer of Death. Come and feed me!
MOVIES ARENT CANON!
So what is he when he's born on earth?
>In Japan, since the author is the holder of the copyrights, everything is "canon" unless stated otherwise.
Kubo directly disavowed the fourth movie in a notice with the DVD anyway. It was crazy how hostile he was to it.
but where did you get that idea?
he was in his human body up until he left for the royal realm the SECOND time.
Considering anime-only arcs and movies to be canon makes the manga stop making sense.
The anime-only arcs and movies weren't even written by kubo anyway.
he wasn't hostile at all, he was sad, and felt that people would get the wrong idea if he kept exec producer credit.
and he felt that his hard work had been wasted.
If you read it as crazy hostile... I dunno what to say.
They advertised the hell movie as being written by Kubo, but since they rused him it's unknown how much of the lore in it is canon.
how do you know thats not just a gigai
For Japan, that is crazy hostile.
Everything is 'canon' if only to themselves.
Unless by 'canon' you mean 'the continuity that's most popularly accepted'. Then, why would canon even matter?
that's a Lon type theory
the "you can't prove it's not" argument is not acceptable here.
It probably would have been mentioned if it were.
He hadn't gotten any stronger (his bankai was broken) since last leaving his body. After talking to his dad and got his sword reforged is when he got a huge powerup.
Judge Ichigo's powerup from Renji's and Rukia's powerups.
I think he's saying the movies are not canon to the ORIGINAL source, which is the manga
afterall, it's the only bleach source anymore.
Can you do me the favor of punching yourself in the face?
Thanks in advance.
>afterall, it's the only bleach source anymore
I mean the movies are not a part of the manga canon (or the anime for that matter). They are seperate entities.
Besides, the manga/anime storyline would make no sense if the movies are part of them.
>The anime-only arcs and movies weren't even written by kubo anyway.
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.
Based on the way this is written, it makes it sound like Bleach is the greatest thing ever created.
Your tears are delicious.
Ichigo's powerup will be much greater.
His hollow pseudo-asauchi has been weaponized and OMZ has stopped holding him back and also been reforged.
He's right, though. I japan you never do something like that unless you have enough weight in the industry, it's a social and professional suicide.
That's why. It this powerup is a multiplier and it put Renji on this level, Ichigo's gonna be a god among men.
I don't cry when I see people posting retarded shit. Pointing out that what they've said is verbal diarrhea is enough.
Movies are how Kubo explore aspect of the manga he couldn't put on paper because of the plot direction and schedule. Stuff you learn in Memories of Nobody are how it works in the manga as well.
>it's a social and professional suicide.
and now we know why bleach was cancelled the season following the DVD release
>Besides, the manga/anime storyline would make no sense if the movies are part of them.
The only one that doesn't match is the Rukia one, and even then you can probably fit it during a training week since the plot by itself is super short.
>it still means they are approved by the author in their own right.
That doesn't make them canon.
Most of the arcs don't even make sense if you try to consider them canon.
Diamond Dust Rebellion was an awful cash-in though
When the anime stopped it was less than a year behind the manga.
I think they had to choose between pre-shippuuden level filler or just stopping until there was enough content.
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.
pls mangapanda I want to sleep
5:35 am here
If you aren't butthurt, you'd actually give a decent reason you disagree instead of an ad hominem.
That's okay, no one will know you're a pussy though.
and also directly contradicted what we know about zanpakutos and their origins.
your face when OP goes out first
Autistic Byakuya-wannabe detected.
What the hell? That was uncalled for. Can you not be so mean next time?
I just checked, fullbringer arc ended in manga in january 2012 in the manga and march 2012 in the anime.
dis guy <3
go back to reddit
>And no one thought it strange.
Ichigo was never considered a normal shinigami. everyone got over their shock in the rescue arc.
Those are abilities of his zanpakuto, not generic abilities.
I've never even been to Reddit. Is there any reason why you're just saying these things to me? What am I supposed to think?
>about zanpakutos and their origins.
not really. SS doesn't know about Zampakutou and wrote their version of the thing based on how it works from their point of view.
fuck it, going to sleep, so the chapter should be out in 5 mins, your welcome
it was explained that the reason he shares damage with his sword and why his bankai is the only one that can regenerate is because of his strong bond with his sword, not any special ability
Didn't Kubo completely forgot about it by the Aizen vs Ichigo ending arc? He even admitted that he doesn't remember what he was ploting when re-reading his own source material sometimes. And that he just wanted to finish it so he can go and be a fashion designer
>And that he just wanted to finish it so he can go and be a fashion designer
that's just /a/
I believe that he actually said if he were to give up manga he'd become an architech
The ability is because of the bond but he is the only one who has that ability so it probably isn't something anyone can do.
actually on the eariest mangas omakes or some shit like that when he describes himself as what would he do if he wasn't making bleach he said "probably fashion designer"
but I kicked your ass in Defiance
>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.
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...
Looks like there's no chapter this week.
only that OP came first
fuck this I'll sleep
>shikai absolutely pointless for Soifon
why? Soifon calls her sword right as far as I know, she just doesn't like its bankai (which means she doesn't use its full potential, which makes it les powerful and fuel the hate)
>If a zanpakutou will respond to whatever nickname or variable release command you throw at
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.
way to miss the point
soifon's bankai is jakuho raikoben when most people were expecting something more predictable like oosuzumebachi
Renji's sword was reforged, though. His Bankai name probably changed. Osho was just informing him of this.
>onepiece released before bleach
t-today is no chapter?
>most people were expecting something more predictable like oosuzumebachi
fuck off, retard.
has happened before, its not that unusual, I'd say 1 in every 7~8 releases
do not desperate
I think they're talking about Yumichika, who calls his zanpaktou by a name it hates to awaken it rather than its actual name.
And it's happy to oblige and lend a bit of power even after being disrespected
What a class act Ruriirokujaku is
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.
You will never sleep.
Noooo, souls dying in SS return as humans.
because mangapanda is so good
Not true, only natural death does that. Being killed has other implications depending on what killed you.
Only hollows will affect souls in SS, and they barely kill the souls they eat. It's more like absorb.
Come to think of it, we really have no idea how different souls interact with each other. Shinigami kills Quincy? Quincy kills Shinigami? Human kills Shinigami? Stuff like that.
>I doubt it would work with any other sword.
More release commands than abilities and like Tenken, is indistinguishable from its sealed form.
And then there's Benihime who requires a normal release (usually off screen) and then subsequent release commands for each ability.
HOLY SHIT GUYS ITS OUT
Yeah yeah…keep trying
So guys, while you wait, how about checking out those epic bleach memes? XD
>calling your sword by its ACTUAL TRUE NAME
Oh boy, inb4 Ichigo calling Zangetsu for Ichigo.
why did i actually do this?
What are you even talking about? Are you drunk?
>neliel will never be healed by orihime, go to soul society, slay all of the quincy, and become the soul queen
why even read bleach
Real spoilers are out. Renji called Zabimaru by its true name and that is why it changed forms.
jesus fucking christ
>implying she wouldn't get fucking obliterated and then captured
Then both our waifus would rot in cell.
LoN been drunk on stupidity for years now
Lab member: Is that you or the liquor talking LoN?
Lon: Lab......I am the liquor!
Is his true name Steve?
ten outta fuckin 10
>implying her alicorn secunda etapa isn't invincible
Don't forget Kubo is a fucking retard
No anon you're the retard.
Don't you have an epik nurutu chapter to spam on the front page?
Renji's battle with Mask continues.
A flashback/cut-away gives some sort of elaboration on the Monk's training in RR that Renji took that allows the true power of the Zan to be extracted and called forth.
Renji has a giant baboon hand and a tail (part of the bankai)
And it seems to suggest that Mask is finally killed.
holy shit, all that mad.
bleachfags show again why they are on the same level as wanpissers and naruturds.
Is this really necessary?
White isn't a colour, Kubo.
It is. He draws on black paper.
you could at least say, 'There are more colours than white, Kubo.' to gain some merit and maybe some agreement, but as it stands you're just lookin like a tard
>implying kubo doesn't have the best color pages
Where are the RAWs, they must be out by now
It's out on waterpanda
>click on it
>chapter isn't out yet
>go to mangapanda
>see color page
>go to next page
>chapter isn't out yet
No, it's true, black and white aren't colours.
Who lotta nuttin
Indeed he does.
Not sure exactly what happened at the end (did Renji incinerate Mask somehow?) but looks like the fight's finally over.
that's remind me...
>renji's bankai is a giant skeleton monkey hand and a snake skull sword thing that burns things or something
I'm glad i stayed up.
I guess at least we found out what monk's thing is. He like, names shit and stuff.
>rukia colour page
thank you based kubo
At least his release is fast now.
I've been wondering for a month already but why would Kubo think a WWE wrestler would be a good idea?
I mean seriously? Every chapter I read it and chuckle about how fucking retarded it is, I don't even know why I'm reading this steaming pile of shit. And it's only one of the more minor reasons this is shit.
You know what? That's it. Dropped this very instant. Maybe in a couple of years when it's all finished I'll read it all in one go just for a conclusion, but until then, good bye Bleach, you were good once.
I always wondered where the baboon part of zabimaru was, since the spirit is half snake and half baboon.
now I know I guess.
>I've been wondering for a month already but why would Kubo think a WWE wrestler would be a good idea?
Because it is.
>I mean seriously? Every chapter I read it and chuckle
That's why you dumb fuck.
>implying mask wasn't the best character
He fucking WRECKED him
That color page of rukia so is beautiful. So renji new bankai souou zabimaru is similar to tensa zangetsu all the power compress into a small form of shape. It sure has a lot of destructive power.
Renji's new bankai is pretty cool.
I just hate it when cool villains with nice gimmick just go all trashtalk berserk mode before being defeated like bitches. It's really unnecessary.
Que the worm guy brining him back again
is that giant hand a fucking stand?
not really, is pretty generic, he basically just became stronger
Renji's bankai is still shit, i'm not even surprised. I mean, what the fuck is that?
2 down 1 to go
>hurr let me destroy my own phylactery, nothing bad could ever happen
OK, so that part should be over now. And it was quite a rape from Renji. Well, he finally got a decent win that wasn't against a mortal woman.
New bankai and fighting style suits him. That's nice. Finally a baboon and snake that are actually dual in form and effect.
Well. Monk knows true name of everything.
I can see how you'd want a guy like this under supervision.
This is a sad day for Bleach
Bambi is alive. In my heart.And in 4 Sternritter bitch stomachs.
The design isn't much but it sure pack a lot of power.
We don't exactly know what it even does so far (except giant strong arm and burning things. What does the snake do?).
Oh well, at least that's something, now I want to see what Rukia can do.
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.
If you spam enough encouragement for Mask in this thread, he wll ressurect
GET UP SUPERSTAR YOU CAN'T LOSE
Baboons have opposable thumbs
Looks accurate to me.
It was slow as fuck. Now it's 2FAST2VIPERBABOONOUS
Well, i sure am glad the most entertaining villain we've gotten in months if not years just got murdered by what's probably the most boring of the main characters, who just got a power up that made him even more boring.
>giant whip that shot laser beams, could reform endlessly, could divide and attack from every single angle possible and had range.
The snake body is still there so it's still working.
In the future all of the bankai will be this small with lots of power.
pretty sure the hand can extend like crazy, and the tail thing can probably also extend and attack
Shit tier speed
Also seems to break easily
oh what a sad day
It's a comic set in a fantasy setting anon, some times things don't make sense and you just got to put up with it even if they're just retarded.
Utilize your suspension of disbelief.
"NO BANKAI IS THAT SMALL"
We don't know Renji's full abilities yet with this bankai. His old bankai was fucking slow and weak as fuck.
its an upgrade simply because his old bankai was garbage
its stronger by default
Yeah, remember when compressed bankai were considered anomalous? Neither does Kubo
I bet he comes back with a teeny weeny bankai. Karma.
This was an uneducated guess based on his experience which is mostly about incomplete bankai. Fuck, his own bankai final form is a notmal sword with wings, and captain commander different forms wheren't flashy either. "bankai = big" sounds like something you learn in high school before actually having and seeing other bankais.
Oh, maybe she just objected to being stripped in public. The other Quincy sluts just want to give her some healing salive, and they can't lick every part of her body and eat her pussy out when she's fully clothed.
so then monk dude could basically awake all bankais for every shinigami because he knows all the names?
Dat Rukia color page. Kubo delivered.
"oh yeah your zanpaktou just doesn't like/trust you, what a shame"
"OH WELL LET ME JUST TELL YOU HIS NAME ANYWAY"
How would that even work with his sword, microscopic petals?
It won't be long before Renji gets REKT too. Boring till the end.
i wouldnt really all this compressed at all
he has a giant fucking baboon arm and a snake skull with a blade sticking out of it and a tail whipping around that probably does something too
not to mention the giant snake bite thing that fried superstar
I hope niggerstream will have this in higher res/quality.
did anyone else notice that renjis bankai sword is almost the same as hiyoris shikai?
I expected for Renji to tell him no at first.
>What does the snake do?
Big burny energy bite thing.
Yes. He will disintegrate his foes by cutting them at the molecular level.
S-superstar... A-atleast As Nodt is going to live?
>OH THIS ISN'T ACTUALLY YOUR BANKAI LOL XD
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!!!!".
You can't into bleach. Small, compact and simple = STRONG.
Big fancy and over the top = WEAK.
Yeah, if you put it together it's at least as big as hikkaku's and hyorinmaru.
People still suck Komamura's dick though.
so with a little luck, Soidonst bankai final form could be a sniper riffle with a bayonette.
This is Kubo's way of trying to justify his tiny penis.
>Small is always way more powerful than big! It's the way you use it that counts!
RIP Masque de Masculine, Super Star ;_;
Yeah it seems bullshit at first until you remember his Zanpakuto doesn't really have its own personality and it's just a part of Renji. Which he apparently doesn't know, so he still thinks his Zanpakuto is a separate being from himself but is conveniently allowed its full power because he knows the name.
Also, the blade coming out of his arm is cool but fuck it. A giant snake that is good both for defense and atack is a way better bankai.
When are we going to find out what Senjumaru does? It has something to do with spinning threads. I'll laugh if it just turns out she designed the Shinigami robe and acts as Soul Society's fashion designer. Kubo self-insert?
>Bleach is a manga that does not allow upgrades for their characters
Says who? It's done it the entire manga.
holy fucking shit renji finally getting rid of that snail, cant wait to see rukia's bankai, worth waiting for this thank you, based kubo.
Unless your Kenpachi
Pic not related
You really should think a little less about penises, anon-kun.
This has been known forever now that bankai's can upgrade to become stronger. Seriously fuck off.
having his hands free is a plus, he can cast magic easily. It's also consistent with that whole "zampakuto are hands extention" definition.
Bigdog + Armoured samurai = Weak
Mandog + Non-armoured kinda-samurai = STRONG
He lost his fur and his bankai became naked. In a way it got more compact.
>When are we going to find out what Senjumaru does?
My bet is when it's Rukia's turn to fight.
Could be the person behind spell training, since Rukia always balance sword and spell pretty well.
By aquiring hollow powers, awaking the power within or any bullshit like that. Not CHANGING THE DEFAULT SHIKAI AND BANKAI.
Bleach is all about the penises tho
This chapter went by so fast.
Only fucking Kubo would put a complete steamroll into 18 pages and call it a chapter
Big strong adult with bells and a fancy uniform = WEAK
Little scrawny kid in rags = STRONG
At least Yamamto still has the best bankai.
That is why the anime was canceled.
>Not CHANGING THE DEFAULT SHIKAI AND BANKAI.
Yumichika showed that improperly addressing your Zanpaktou alters it's form and hinders ability.
Why would only the Shinigami be capable of telling false name?
>awaking the power within
Which is exactly what happened.
>You aren't using all your power because you are saying the name wrong
>If you say it this way you can use all your power
His upgrade is just as normal as all the other fucking upgrades, and every single character has gone through at least one.
Imagine The Thug Society we would get if black guy was in charge of naming things.
At least the new Bankai looks good.
I doubt Mask the Bullshit is dead, though. If James came back in that state (and what the fuck was that, seriously Kubo), I bet he'll resurrect in his ultimate ultimate "it's literally a star" form, and throw a sun into Renji.
Nah Captain Furry has his own set of closet fans that will even claim he was stronger than Kenpachi during their SS face off.
Imagine if he had been two sworded but one armed
BUT THEN WHO WAS SWORD HOLY FUCKING SHIT KUBO
I'm still waiting for yhwach to use it and then accidentily ressurect yamamoto because he is a phoenix.
worst part is Ichigo's Bankai
>you're now faster and stronger
every fight is him slashing or some shit and GETSUGA TENSHO GETSUGA TENSHO
basically he has one single attack, the other time he just slashes
that's why Ichigo's fights are always the worst
until Shunsui breaks his out of course
to be honest the old version really looked like only the snake was participating in the battle.
He was strong enough to not be brutally anal raped by a weakened kenpachi. I guess that's applaudable, to a degree.
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.
I wouldn't put it past Kubo. I hope it happens.
>implying getsuga tenshou is the name of the attack
It's fucking Grimmjow you dense motherfucker or Gin
>every fight is him slashing or some shit and GETSUGA TENSHO GETSUGA TENSHO
>basically he has one single attack, the other time he just slashes
Welcome to every single shounen protagonist ever. Enjoy your stay.
Technically Ichigo never bankai'd, he was just using disguised quincy powerups.
Ichigo's fights are the worst because
>congrats, your bankai power is speed
>everybody is just as fast as you when you use bankai btw
Well, he did defeat Renji, Ikkaku, Yumichika, Hisagi and Rose easily. I just hope the others Sternritters do the same before they lose their fights
>Acquiring shikai and bankai, also mastering them, can take centuries!
>But let's do all of that in few months.
>Oh, it's just boosted your innate abilities and gave basic attack?
TO BE FUCKING EXPECTED
No. He did bankai. It was just channeled and hindered by OMZ.
>Since when were you under the imprssion that the red hair was the baboon's?
Mask abandoned Justice, it was only right for Renji to beat him
He's ded, Jim.
That's because Ichigo is now all wise and enlightened and shit. People like renji and shit are morons, one would assume old captains like Shunsui know that "the sword is me".
are you retarded? even naruto has dozens of different attacks, if you like it or not.
Ichigo is the worst Shonen mc in terms of attacks
GET OVER HERE!~
>Mask comes back
>Blah blah SUPERHERO
>My Bankai is a snake-baboon thing and it poisons shit
>You came back, but still poisoned, and always will be
Otherwise we get the immortal guy dying for no fucking reason, or the guy coming back making this entire sequence fucking pointless.
Oh wait, yeah it's probably the second one, never mind.
You mean if the Mangastream translator was in charge?
You forgot kensei.
grimmjow, you dense piece of shit
You shut your whore mouth!
> Serpent Tail
> Monkey Paw
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.
Sorry, Kensei and Rose. Sorry, every other visored minus Hacchi.
It's kind of hard to judge how more powerful he actually got, though, since Quincies are glass canon.
Let it go.
IT'S NOT CONFIRMED THOUGH YOU FUCKING SHITS
But he always has a signature move. It's just that he gets a new one every now and then.
He has his clones, then he learns his rasengan and then he learns his shuriken.
Ichigo gets new shit in the form of forms/power ups and masks. Every shounen protag always has there signature move they spam. Even in sports shounen.
your opinion isn't relevant anymore
Maybe there's more to it.
And I should have been more clear, I meant the head, not that stingy tail.
Reminder that AfroStar is still alive and with Grimmjow
I really hope Yumichika and Hisagi aren't down for the rest of the war. Yumichika probably doesn't have bankai but he might (it's really more that I'd love to see it), and Hisagi, I think, has a decent chance of having one. Otherwise, why give him panels in the training period about how he's going for bankai?
oh my god...imagine if it werent grimmy. that would be full kubo
Hacchi's redecorating the space between worlds.
Looks like a sword & board
Except the shield is also a long range grappler, and the sword nukes stabbed peopple
at this point i assume you're just "trolling" because no one can be this fucking retarded.
Afro is still alive?
>the guy who got his ass beat by sado
Looked like the head to me, only in energy form. Like that Cang Du's movs.
>manga about sword fighting
>get upset when a guy "spams" his only ranged attack
it's called zoning you scrubs
>Rukia in a white toque
>at long last
>no fucking Rukia
For fucks sake.
Are YOU? It's IMPLIED to be grimmjow, we ASSUME it's grimmjow, it would make SENSE if it was Grimmjow. But it's been a fucking year, more than a fuckign year and it's not CONFIRMED.
I liked Renji's new Bankai, he's finally not an one trick pony anymore.
Unohana healed him
Welcome to KUBO
Isn't 3 the number of death in Japan?
All that wait, but in the end it will be like Mexico, she will have one fight that lasts for 3 or 4 chapters, then win then go back to the background real until endgame celebrations.
Crimson King, huh? I wonder if there's any significance to the name.
Was this chapter supposed to make Renji look strong or stronger than the captains?
Because a hand that grabs someone and a blade the uses a fire snake bite is absolute shit compared to several other bankai, especially one that BLOWS THE FUCK UP of anything it touches as many times necessary for as long as it is touching that thing.
That would be 4.
Hmm, excellent character to be crushed by Sternritters just like Visored
I'm sure you can think of something. It will be wrong, but go for it anyway.
So why is the third squad the unlucky ones?
what techniques do and what they are actually capable of doing are two seperate things
>yfw Retsu was the leader of the 4th
You aren't paying attention, anon. Bleach is about power levels now, not unique and interesting abilities.
>Immortal ded for no reason
Well, to me it seemed that James and Mask are depentent from each other, as long as one was alive, the other would always regenerate completely after a while.
When you kill both at the same time or very shortly after another they're dead for real.
Possible they were one single entity.
Because Kubo sucks at storytelling.
That's the joke.
It is just someone who dress just like Grimmjow, talks like him and has Ichigo reacting like it is him.
He'll marry Toya Willcox and move to Scotland.
If the bite can happen on any impact it's a pretty strong bankai imo. The monkey hand looks like a powerful guard breaker too.It's really balanced imo. not really complex and full of tricks but efficient.
Byakuya's new bankai:
He lost to Mask and now going to kiss the ground until the end of the manga you'll see him in next 8 years
Their flower emblem represents despair and sorrow.
It's clearly Yami, who lost weight after surviving by miracle, so he had to borrow grimjaw's clothes.
>Quints wasted on a post with "imo" twice.
Which fucking sucks. This is just like DBZ now.
>oh no but i'm stronger
>i can blow up a mountain
>oh but i just blew up the entire city
>oh but i can destroy the planet
>i can stop a bullet with my teeth
And fuck anything else. This is fucking boring. Genuinely interesting characters and abilities mean nothing in this series.
>nanoblade create a pink smoke that smells like fragrant perfume before piercing you from the inside
It will be like a classy version of Mustard gas.
His deisgn was so fucking lame.
God damn, sometimes kubo shits the bed when it comes to design.
>oh but i can destroy the planet
>i can stop a bullet with my teeth
Somehow I don't think one of these fits.
are you retarded interesting abilities can only take a person so far
This nanoblades concept is what would make Haineko a great fucking zanpakuto if Kubo wasn't a demented fucktard.
Haineko is dust. Ash. People can breathe that shit. It can also hide and penetrate anywhere. Your clothing, body, eyes, whatever. That was supposed to be an overpowered shikai.
also he used it successfully to block the massive star blast.
So its even BETTER defensively than the giant useless snake
Yammy wasn't fat. Humongous. but in no way fat.
Even after slimming down he would still be about three times as large as Grimmjow.
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.
Unless Kubo is using the duality of the characters Crimson King and Gan in the Dark Tower series as a reference, a series authored by Stephen King. The Crimson King also becomes an undead apparently.
damn for some reason it didnt type the rest of the post out what i said was
Interesting abilities can only take a person so far before it has to becomes so hax that the opponent can do anything
or have a major drawback in which case its going to rely on the character being strong enough to utilize it correctly
Interesting abilities allow for more interesting battles where actual strategies are used that involve the special abilities. Instead of interesting, strategic battles we get "MY POWER LEVEL IS HIGHER THAN YOUR POWER LEVEL SO I CAN WITHSTAND YOUR ATTACK AND ATTACK YOU HARDER!"
Interesting abilities and strategy is what make a battle fun to watch. Seeing the character thinking and using his abilities for something.
It is about
>fuck, how can i use my powers to win
And not about
>fuck it, i will destroy the entire landscape to show how strong i am!!!11
defensive bankai are shit, though, since the day they fail is the day they break forever.
>supposed to be
Hey everyone! It's Kubo! He posts on /a/, says hi!
Bleach was always below generic shit. /a/ just pretends to like it because >ROFL LOL KUUUUBOOOO TWEEEST XD
Gladly this shitty meme starts to die and people realize all big three are the same shit
>Renji gets an upgraded Bankai
>Rukia still had no Bankai
Technically speaking nanoblades would be microscopic, not electronscopic.
Also Matsumoto got a crapton of her power stolen, the fact that she's an officer despite that speaks for her inborn talent.
Matsumoto doesn't need any other power up, or application of her power, she needs Aizen to cut her some slack.
She's the team healer now, She learned to create spring water from her pussy and is now busy healing the whole squad by swuirting on theri face off panel, and enjoy every minute of it.
It's a fucking shame that the characters with the biggest potential (Vizards) just get absolutely rekt
Naruto had a better chapter this week
Her blade being able to teleport back seems so broken. Definitely a first class blade she has there.
You've been reading Gigantomakhia too much.
Ichigo still talked to NotBach and Zangetsu. He knows they are part of him yet at the same time recognizes them as themselves. (like how he ended with 2 swords)
In psychology terms:
Undifferentiation (unawakened sword) -> differentiation (awakened sword) -> integration (not disolution) (current form)
>Naruto had a less shit chapter this week
I would agree if it wasn't for the fact the Sauce isn't actually going to die
how? all monsters got eaten, Gaara was sucking Naruto's dick again and the lolstab at the end had no buildup, meaning it's 100% bullshit cliffhanger with no consequences for next chapter.
all big3 were hell of weak for a post holiday come back.
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.
This is synoymous anon. You're just making it sound more cynical
I don't see it.
Shunsui Bankai when?
What? Zanpakutou has reiatsu now? This is bullshit. The reiatsu comes from the shinigami, not the weapon. That is why they don't get more reaitsu once they go bankai.
and my lungs
>shinigami gassing the quincy nazis
Ahh I thought it reminded me to some other power anywhere...
I wonder when people will realize that komamuras bankai is good against people that komamura would be capable of fighting anyway
And the opponents komamura gets put up against are well beyond his level
hell even the best attack resurrection tousen displayed couldnt put komamura down
Great chapter. Can't for Renji getting jobbed by Baragan Quincy to show the different powerlevels.
How does Mayuri deal with enemies that don't breathe? He is pretty fucking useless if his enemy does not breathe. That is why he is always using techniques that he invented, not his natural abilities.
It wasn't an entire chapter about wanking Renji for one
>Kubo has a weekend of DMC4
>"Oh man, Nero is so cool"
I am not saying he is shit. I'm saying that he isn't as good as he could be if he was in another manga.
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.
Nero is a faggot his arm is pretty fresh though.
>tfw no indestructible demon arm
So you're saying he's shit and a jobber then. Because he can't fight against half the people in the series.
>>tfw no indestructible fap arm
calling it now, one of the royal guards will have a weapon like Yamato or Rebellion or Sparda Sword
>Is Kira dead?
>Who was sword?
>Is Unohana dead?
>What was here Bankai?
>What's the name of Kenpachi's Zanpakuto
>Why's Aizen still in jail?
>Whay's up whit the Soul King?
in another manga he would be fighting people his level
i hope you dont think half the people in this manga could take on aizen do you
We need these bitches back.
this is why JoJo is the best shonen
I'd say he could win against most people in the series, but that is because most people in the series are just random nameless shinigami without shikai.
The real enemies, the real people he would have to fight, are way above his power level. So it's like you could kill children with your bare hands but the people that matters are too strong for you.
insta acid kill
we will see next year
he's pretty darn gay
Kira is dead, Grimmjow was sword and Unohana is dead.
You should read this manga called "Bleach" it will answer most of your questions.
Kubo loves designing female characers you will never see again.
>implying Komamura doesn't have a special technique and isn't fast.
Human Komamura would beat most of the Captains besides people like Yamamoto, Shunsui, and Aizen.
who the fuck are these? never seen them before.
A simple katana then? I guess that sword from that guy from D. Gray Man, Mugen I guess, would make a great zanpakutou.
The nigger blacksmith's harem.
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.
except it works better as a seinen
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
He would lose to half the captains. That's shit enough. At most he picks on the vizards and kids.
So he's a jobber, just like I said. What is not getting through here?
Fucking Kubo, Mera's haircut now turns my dick into diamonds.
contact poison. I could see him having insect nanobots to inject it, too
Does Kubo know no shame in his ass pulls?
your first bleach chapter?
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.
Only because most of them are too fucking stupid to run away properly after he explains how his ability works.
He is a jobber, but you said he would lose to most people in the series. Most people in Bleach are hundreds of nameless shinigami.
>Beauty and the Beast
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.
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.
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
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
Just like Yumichika having 2 names for his Shikai.
fuck off. shunsui and ukitake would wreck komas shit.
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.
Hmm, you mean Azashiro's Shikai? In a way, yeah I can see that. But the full package would be too atractive.
unohana would murder him any day of the week.
I remember when D-Roy appeared during the first chapters and was hyped as fuck. Then Kubo killed him in 2 chapters years later.
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?
A jobber loses to make someone look strong.
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
He was my favorite arrankar, anon-kun...
Cool as fuck.
Mine too, beign a D-Roy fan is pure suffering.
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.
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.
Renji developed his half-bankai pretty ingeniously, figuring out that he could even launch attacks from any angle even if someone blew it up. That shit's out the window.
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
If the release command ain't "Bleach, I'm going to be very disappointed.
You've been aware of his new bankai more than a year ago.
Shunsui's shikai beats Komamura, hands down. Dogs are colour blind.
>also called orochi
Try being a Starrk fan and hoping he might be alive in a new form...I want to belive...
Starrk had so much potential as a character. I hope he comes back.
>I don't count those people, and neither should you.
lol nigga are you for REAL? Hate maymay really attract the worst shitheads in those threads.
Starrk will reincarnate in the Beast Realm, and bro up with Komamura who will go there to train his new body.
Niggastream released their's.
see what i mean?
When we find out he and Ukitake are actually sternritters
>Starrk had so much potential as a character
muh nigga. I'll feel very anal ravaged if Kubo brought back one of the more forgettable arrancar.
The fuck are you talking about nigger? Do you also count D-Roy as a really strong character then? He could rape the shit out of every single non-officer in Soul Society, OH SHIT HE MUST BE AN ELITE.
Just stop, you look retarded.
Komamura isnt a dog
how are all the captains minus ukitake kenpachi and shunsui going to survive the ridiculous power inflation that is happening? base mask effortlessly destroyed two mid-tier captains and renji just effortlessly destroyed mask. renji seems legit aizen level now.
all my fetishes in one pic
>Aizen finds out his bankai's true name
>It starts eating at his memory and sanity
>He goes into Valvrave mode and becomes a vegetable by the end of Bleach
shes a goddess
People like you must have had so much trouble during primary school when the teachers told you to write about anything.
The lack of basic imagination is disgusting.
As a character he was the best espada.
Please note that Renji has also been using a half ass bankai before this shit and obtained his final form. Your move faggot.
That would be Halibel thank you
Is it good? No one seems to care about it around here, it seems.
You misspelled Starrk but I can forgive you.
Renji is about high-mid tier captain right now.
Yeah only if they used their hollow powers they would be mid tier, but without them they are pretty shit tier.
Yes she would like to have wolves for dinner
I wasn't aware she was that kinky.
Does anybody actually give a shit about Renji? These last 3 or 4 chapters with him have been boring as fuck
Let me get this straight.
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?
No, just the ones that didn't like the person using them. Ichigo wasn't actually using his Bankai at all.
>Does anybody actually give a shit about Renji?
No, it's more like Renji thought he sucked so his bankai reflected his inner feelings.
Jesus. No. Fuck.
You people are retarded.
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...
>too dumb to use magic
>only can swing his sword and shoot energy slashes
Because Kido is shit unless you're ridiculously good with it.
Yes I do Mask also made it pretty entertaining.
Nope, just Renji own bankai decided Renji is immature as a warrior to give him his full name.
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.
People are already unlocking level two Bankai while Rukia and Kenpatchi have not even got one.
give him time, kenpachi's atleast got shikai by now.
Kenpachi was always in shikai.

So, manga over the anime, eh?
It's totally different than Bleach though, other than the silly pretentiousness people had during that era. It's overplayed a bit, but it was indeed a cultural thing.
Flashback to original Gotei raping Quincy when?
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.
But that's wrong
Look at Stands
Look at Devil Fruits
Look at Nen
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.
Knowing the name > not knowing the name. Mastering the Bankai also causes change.
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.
No. Ichigo was being fooled by his quincy powers, and Renji was being fooled by his Shinigami powers.
