>Rukia confirmed for fearless
How do you feel knowing Nodt will be beaten by her?
Is she going to use her bankai? And let me predict the next 3-4 weeks/chapters:
>Next chapter, Rukia dominates, at the end As Nodt appears behind her and cuts her
>Chapter after that, Rukia is undamaged and uses a power up
>Then we see her power up, and she kills him
>Alternatively, she uses her power up, he is unaffected and she uses another one
>not seeing any action with best grill for months
I came buckets
Screw you Kubo
That Äshole had it coming.
hurrhurrhurr, I'm so clever
This is some deep shit.
renji going to sleep in the middle of the enemy territory, even inside one of their buildings.
he's either a fucking idiot or a total badass.
is as nodt a grill?
I don't really see Rukia as getting a bankai by the end of the series, though how popular she is makes it more likely.
>ha, you're scared
>you're totally scared
>you're shitting yourself
it's like a shortform-version of the whole two chapter "I'm winning and striking a convincing blow" "No me" reversals the fights have been lately
This is just wrong. Next she'll trash talk like a nigger, and drink the blood of her enemies while having orgasm on their stiff corpses.
I fucking hate this scene setting chapters.
They go so quickly and nothing feels like it's happening.
that's a fucking awful typing, they repeated the first part of the sentence.
>Everyone forgetting what As Nodt said about irrational fear
>Thinking Rukia will actually be fearless and isn't just talking out of her ass
>even inside one of their buildings.
To be fair, there are no other buildings.
>yfw she's the next kenpachi
They don't think it be like it is, but it do.
what's nanananananana letter btw? Looks like he has observation power, which is convenient because when he loses, his data will be sent to juha so Renji will be condemned to job no matter what.
This chapter was some high-level "nothing happens" bullshit.
As Nodt will beat Rukia, it's pretty obvious.
Byakuya will come to save her and die.
Just remember Byakuya was also "fearless" but we both know how he ended up.
>As Nodt in fucking strapps
He's an badass idiot.
If NaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNa had decided to kill him he would be dead know, dying the lousiest way possible.
This is like the most retarded chapter in the series.
Hell, this is the most retarded chapter of any of the big 3.
Well considering his power is about psychological warfare it makes perfect sense.
maybe she conquered her inner fears, like a mentat or a bene geserit in dune...
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
His letter is U.
What the fuck am I reading. Is everything this faggot says supposed to be unreadable?
I bet it'll go like this.
>She defeats the quincy
>"Why didn't that power work on you"
>"lol it did I was just pretending"
I love how Kubo went full crazy with the sternritter names and didn't even give a fuck.
Fear makes you fight better. If you're fearless you'll die because you become cocky
Yeah but byakuya didn't have the power of "dead love that looks like Ichigo and teaches you a whole flashback of friendship in the middle of a fight to unlock a convenient power. ".
Seriously, what will happen is that she's frozen with fear, remember that time she sucked his cock and took his whole fist in the ass, then unlock the 5th dance and "the heart" by punching nodt in the face and killing him.
But thats the thing, you can't reason through or conquer the type of fear he uses. Remember that whole thing during his fight with Byakuya?
>WAAAAHHH! I'M SO LONELY!!!
Äs Hole confirmed for emo bitch.
it woudl have been great, honestly, renji dying like that.
Go away Frank, you are dead.
Yet we are talking about irrational fear. Fear that freezes your body, that prevents you from thinking straight, that makes your whole body shake uncontrollably.
At this rate there'll be an enemy called Q Wer Tyh.
dambn that's a hard letter.
Next chapter, obligatory
>I can't fear because of my friends
>because of Ichigo-kun
>because of nee-sama
>NO THIS CANNOT BE I'M DYING CURSE YOU SHINIGAMI
evil rukia's hot
no, this is not more retarded than madara rejecting an inmortal body with inmortal chakra.
In all honestly eyeball monk is the Knower Of All Names. He probably just told her the name of her Bankai, just like he did with Renji.
>frozen with fear
Yeah but she has had super secret training in heaven and loves her brother very much.
>The Ugly Motherfucker
he's a goth though
>tfw Rukia's power up doesn't work at all
>tfw she's stuck in an irrational fear forever
Madara rejected the immortal body with infinite chakra because he got a huge power-up thanks to his real, living body.
This bullshit "I'm not scared" from the most retarded character in the show is the biggest asspull Kubo ever pulled.
Gansta version is out
The Ultra Violet
My guess is on Ultra Violet. He observed Renji for so long that he got skin cancer.
It was out first.
if you know your psyche to it's fulliest you can make anything irrational or subconscious conscious and manage it perfectly.
>>tfw she's stuck in an irrational fear forever
she's used to it by now, remember her whole fight in HM? She was shitting her pants and crying the whole time.
they truly outdone the niggerspeak with the nigger doing it
Actually, this gets me thinking that Kenpachi would be the perfect candidate to defeat him...
>I can't fear
>because I've taken too much meth
Kenpachi is the perfect candidate to defeat lots and lots of thing.
So many hours have passed, where the fuck is Ichigo?
Oh please, stop excusing this bullshit writing.
You can't overcome all kinds of irrational fear. You can overcome only that kind that you feared at least once and were able to put yourself in that situation over and over again until you get over it.
This bitch didn't only overcome her fears, no she overcome ALL fear that existed.
He died off panel
Rukia is the MC now
Fucking best version.
Explains the rotting teeth.
Don't you mean where is Aizen?
Rukia will pull a demi Aizen and reveal she was faking being a fragile little emo girl all her life to please her nissan, but now she's back to be the fearless tomboy she was in the slums, whose life was only violece, rape, drugs, rape, death and rape all day every day without hope, friends and things to lose.
He certainly looks like one.
are you trolling???
>A character using a meaningless bluff is the biggest asspull Kubo ever pulled
Well thats pretty impressive because thats not an asspull at all
>where the fuck is Ichigo?
Do not summon the devil. As soon as he comes it's boring fights and GETSUGA TENSHOU instead of exploring the abilities of the captains we haven't seen yet.
>implying you can bluff that you're fearless when your whole body should be paralyzed out of fear
>Thinking this shit will not be explained
>Actually believing Madara's shit powerup make sense and it wasn't retarded as fuck
He took a break at the serpent's brothel, fucking some hot demon poledancers and drinking fine wines.
And then she wips out her cock.
not everyone fears all the fears, if that's a thing, she only needed to get over her fears, and that's not such a hard thing to do, because she won't fear suddenly something that she never feared.
We don't know what's happening still anyway, so we don't know if this is shit writing or not yet.
I hate it. Kubo empowering the original band , due to ''royal realm training'' even when they'd be established as useless and characters above them fall like flies is disgusting.
Wait till you see Chad having done Hueco Mundo training with Urahara. Bankai level shit.
Holy shit quit kneejerking so hard. It was one comment from a character who feels confident that they'll win. It literally means nothing until we see what actually happens. I can't believe so many of you faggots are so upset over what could amount to a bluff.
he wouldn't even need to be fearless, in bleach you can just muh reiatsu away anything
What's with all the rape ?
Anyone else disappointed that Rose didn't actually die?
Fucking Kubo can't bring himself to kill off (Major) Shinigami
It gets like that when nothing happens in the chapter.
People need to find something to talk about.
Even Byakuya lasted this long without being scared and hes been scared the entire manga so far.
>what could amount to a bluff.
Chad was already at bankai level by the time they went to Hueco Mundo.
I don't usually hang around these threads, but was there speculah about Ichigo's new Zangetsus? Particularly, I find it really curious that he gets a smaller one to dual wield. And I really suspect the length corresponds with the strength of each sword, being, the longer one is Ichigo's Asauchi and his now unconstrained power and the smaller one is his old power.
You idiots, she's not fearless, she felt fear right there.
>So, this is fear?
She's just suppressing it for now.Rukia bankai when
They combine to form a bow.
My god what a shit chapter.
Straight out of the "it's nothing" what a fuck Kubo? I thought you stopped with this shit...
There was some speculation. A lot of things like putting one sword through the other to make a bow and what not. There was also some speculation that the small one would be for parrying and such. Mostly though it was the bow thing.
>Wait till you see Chad having done Hueco Mundo training with Urahara. Bankai level shit.
how is this a bad thing? he always had potential.
He was getting slapped around by Renji's useless half-bankai.
He really really wasn't at bankai level.
>It gets like that when nothing happens in the chapter.
It's not even true, since we are setting the next fights there, it's just not much to hold a whole thread alive.
Also Rukia still need to name her sword for simple ice tricks. It more or less confirms she doesn't have bankai.
>anything but shit
He beat Gattenbaine pretty handily and was easily at bankai level there. Ichigo had to use bankai against his privaron espada.
also how come they dont use german words for the letters?
I thought english was for fullbringers
It's kind of a mixed bag. In SS already Shinsui commented that while not being mobile enough, Chad's punch at full force could have been a problem to him. So I think that chad is definitely at bankai power in term or pure raw power, but he just can't use it correctly due to his low durability and speed.
Well he was highly knowing because of the "nothing happens the manga" and i even dare say that this pushed editor to tell him to "wrap thing ups" but since he started the chapters were much better. Did Bleach got up on the ratings or something?
I don't know what you people expect from a chapter. 2 more fights got paired off with some exposition in between. Sure nothing huge happened but the story progressed a bit.
I dont get why people are so butthurt. This happens every time a fight is setup.
1. Trash talk
2. A is winning
2. No B was behind A all the time
3. A power up
4. B was actually hiding his true form all along
5. The Heart
>Implying she isn't going to lose so Byakuya have a "ore wa mamoru imouto" badass moment and a rematch
Not that i want that, but its what will happen.
Ichigo was also not at bankai level.
Do we have any examples of people blocking his shit?
He should just fuck her already, he clearly wants to.
Chad is definitely strong enough to fight at the level of bankai, in general not just raw power.
Yeah, but seriously, there are more than enough Sternritter for Byakuka to destroy, can't Kubo just give Rukia the victory over Äshat?
He's really really not.
>Ichigo was also not at bankai level.
Ichigo vs grimmjow round 3 is the last even fight in this series.
>Byakuya's face when he's been grooming Rukia to become his new wife all along, only for her to turn around and make him her wife
>Implying it isn't Ichigo vs Ishida in his longest-standing rivalry
He was far past gattenbaine in terms of strength and then trained for over two years. You saying really really not doesn't make it not true.
Ichigo is so far away from what any arrancar can get that isn't even funny.
I didn't mean that, I meant the shittyness of how kubo overpowered the main gang compered to established characters jobing left and right was of bankai level. And I expect Chad to get one too.
>faggots still read this shit
Rukia is a strong independent white girl
Who don't need no Aniki
>ichigo vs ishida
it's so obvious as a fight that it won't happen, also last week we got confirmation that ishida was always planning to betray the quincies all along.
>I love how Kubo went full crazy.
Hitsugaya vs Harribel
Yumichika vs Charlotte
trained with renjis bankai
went to hueco mundo gained power that far exceeded what he had before
went to human world and trained for two years
and is now training in hueco mundo again
He really really really isn't.
I have no clue what you mean by that.
>ishida was always planning to betray the quincies all along.
Did this really come as a surprise to anyone?
no, but what I'm saying if we even get an ichigo vs ishida fight it will be fake.
>He was getting slapped around by Renji's useless half-bankai.
1. he can put his life behind his energy beam.
No, which is why anon also said "confirmation" and not "revelation".
Renji is such a fucking dumbass
Maybe this is a jobbing chain setup
Vizards job to Mask who jobs to Renji to show that Royal Trained got him to insane levels
Then we'd assume Rukia is now at similar levels, but end up jobbing to As, to show As is at even more crazy levels.
Thenr As jobs to either Zaraki, Unohana or Ichigo, to show their even more fucked up levels.
While his betrayal makes no doubt, the "avenging muh mom" part is probably not the real reason.
>I love how Kubo went full crazy and didn't give a fuck
>confirmation that ishida was always planning to betray the quincies all along.
WHAWHA WHAAAT?! NO! NOBODY EVER GUESSED!
2. he had potential to do some serious demage to a captain like Kyouraku eventhough his power was not his final stage.
Jesus Christ, I wish Kubo would hurry up and bring Aizen back.
He's literally saved by the power of cartoony comic relief at this point. At this rate he's gonna pull us a Mako soon, and swim through reihatsu to calm Rukia's berserk mode, while nanana takes a like of him.
Honestly when As showed up he looked like Unohana for a second.
The longer it is until Aizen reappears the more potential for keikaku.
>It would have been very nasty if I was hit
He acts like this all the time. He is humble as fuck.
"Very nasty" would be a bit of bleeding.
I WILL SHOW YOU A WORLD OF PAIN
3. (don´t want to search for the page, so I´ll just say it) he gets stronger hueco mundo, just by being there.
He obviously has a final form, maybe something like a hollow full body suit and I think he will be at the level of one of the stronger spada.
I mean it's really shitty how Kubo overpowered Renji, Rukia above captain level with a hurr durr royal realm specul training asspull. And I think he has a similar asspul in mind of overpowering Chad.
And I wanted to emphasise that by saying that the shittyness is so intense, if it was a zanpakuto it'd have gone into bankai.
Or is he so strong now that he didn't even fear the Quincy attacking him?
Not that NaNaNaNaNa Life is Life is much better than Renji, waiting the whole night, never having the idea to just send some normal Quincies to stab him in his sleep/walk into his trap.
If Rukia loses than Rukia fans will lose their shit.
She has done anything noteworthy in years.
No, I understand now. It was the whole "of bankai" level that made it unclear.
>me after reading the chapter
Maybe he looks completelly different u8nder that mask.
Like, with a huge square chin.
>/a/ the day the chapter comes out where rukia jobs
I kinda want this to happen now just because of how mad everyone would be.
I think renji just got to captain level, not avobe it, and we don't know whre rukia stands now.
Byakuya was pretty strong before, but still a mid level captain, now he will probably be on the top tier along with kenpachi and shunsui.
None of them is actually Aizen, Yamamoto or Ichigo's level.
Come on, it wasn't that bad.
Sorry Rukia but "kawaii petite that dons a killer face mid battle" schtick is already taken by soifon. Find yourself another stereotype pls.
You became a nurse? Good for you.
that was not what he meant.
>but still a mid level captain
I'm not certain of that. Byakuya has in at his disposal bankai techniques he literally only ever used twice.
Where is Yoruichi?
I think heart attack implies "Hnnnnnnng" which he most likely got from Rukia.
rukia > soi-fon, even is I'd fuck both hard.
Rukia bankai in 2 weeks, let's be prepared.
Chad is already captain level.
Renji is not above captain level he is only about high-mid tier.
So i watched the anime until Aizen. When does it get good again?
He became Cloud.
he don't have a mind-fuck bankai or fuck huge reiatsu, so that made him a mid-level captain.
I'm considering this. It might come in handy.
I think the only safe definition of that would be having bankai, which already makes you a candidate for Captain position.
Captain level is bankai or equivalent strength. Renji was already a captain level shinigami without the royal guard training. You can't honestly believe that how strong Renji is now is just at captain level, because that would mean most of the current captains are below captain level.
>it's in fact
>no other than
>*scene skipped and never addressed again*
>2 weeks later
>End of the chapter
>Rukia goes Bankai
>ICHIGO FINALLY ARRIVES
>Off screen Bankai because muh mistery
I can already taste it...
But soi-fon is a Tsundere softy that pretends to be tough when she isn't. Rukia can be a killer who pretends to be a softy.
Captain level doesn't mean shit. Rose is captain level, Kensei is captain level...
>I can only use it once per month, whent he moon is full!
>next chapter is another scene
>next chapter shows a defeated enemy on the floor "subarashi! I've never seen something so strong and beautiful!"
then the story resolves and bleach end before a month passes.
>>*scene skipped and never addressed again*
He meant Hollow, of course. Seriously, dude.
>Renji is not above captain level he is only about high-mid tier.
>Mask beats two captains easily
>Renji defeats Mask x 10 easily
>Not above captain level
He is so far above captain level right now.
A hollow you moron.
Nah, he meant fullbringading.
>no other than
Which is a Hollow power.
Fullbring IS a hollow power. But of course you already knew that before you even posted.
>People not believing Rukia could be fearless.
Remember, Rukia spent years alone as a baby till who knows how old in one of the roughest parts of the Rukogai. I'm sure she's seen some pretty horrendous shit in her time. She's also not gonna fall for the same trick as Byakuya as she knows he's not in SS and she's dealt with her Kaien problems.
Even if he shows one of her comrades dying I think she'll ignore it. Rukia may not be very strong but she is a professional and good at turning off her emotions.
It was even worse.
Worst shit gets more screen time and a bullshit power up coupled with a retarded asspull.
>Soul Society's definition of Captain-level is just being able to activate bankai
>underlings had bankai but don't feel like putting up with the hassle of captaincy so they just hide it
>Renji is too gar for Byakuya to leave his side
God damn, I'm excited. I wonder what is her powerup.
Fourth dance - BREAKDANCE!
>and we don't know whre rukia stands now.
Above Byakuya level.
FUCK YES! I fucking love serious Rukia.
Kawaii bullshit Rukia is a travesty and Kubo should be ashamed of himself
Rose and Kensei are shit tier captains and they both didn't even use their hollow masks. There are multiple captains that can 2v1 Rose and Kensei.
There were no powerups or asspulls in this chapter, what the fuck are you talking about?
Rukia knows all that matter is literally "the heart". Kaien already taught her no matter what happens the heart of things is still there in her hand. Kubo will refresh our memory next chapter with a small flashback copy pasta and the fight will go on because of courrrrrse nodt has way more weapons in its sleaves, including a voldstanding.
>She can resist shit that not even Byakuya could
>not retarded asspull power up
>In B4 Rukias fear is killing Ichigo in the same way she killed Kaien
We don't know that. She has surely stronger will now, but Byakuya and Ichigo being still away makes it easier for her.
As for power - As Nodt got wounded by Senbonzakura alone. He relied heavily on fear factor and Byakuya's bankai. We know nothing about his actual power.
At least wait for things to actually happen before you get mad about them autist-kun.
>Isane will never be relevant
I'm kind of disapointed, she never even showed her sword power or anything, she's just a band aid dispenser at this point.
So much rape ;_;
Fuck you Hisana.
Shes totally dende-ing right now, thats pretty relevant.
we saw her shikai
>needing to wait for Kubo to keep the bullshit up
Anon please. Anyone who read more than 10 chapters can predict what will happen next.
The first post in the thread already predicted the fight completely.
>the poledance of the moon rabbit
complete with classic bunnygirl outfit.
>In a fight of X and Y, X will win!
Greatest deductive skill ever.
>the "avenging muh mom" part is probably not the real reason.
inb4 the real reason is that the tsundere little shit is doing it for Ichigo's sake.
Shinigami rape culture is alive and well I'm afraid.
Theres no reason to assume Rukia will be totally fearless, she could easily experience fear and still end up winning. Just wait until things actually happen instead of getting mad at the possibility of it happening. You look like a total moron.
but no fight. She has less development than oomaeda at this point of the story. Her biggest feat ever was to launch a call conference.
I love how Kubo made a loli imouto for him and then just killed her off for some quick drama.
not every vice captain is a fighter
>tfw Omaeda never used bankai like I was hoping he would
>Äs Hole's dialogue
Seriously, Oda should have made him a hissing skeleton, it would fit so perfectly.
SHES BLUFFING YOU FAGGOTS!
SHE SPENT THE FIRST ARC OF THE MANGA LYING 80% OF THE TIME AND THIS IS NO DIFFERENT.
Rukia has a pokerface and shes trying to use to to her advantage in this fight. Its the old brain over brawn concept, though admittedly this isn't something that usually features heavily in Bleach.
It was already confirmed that Edo Zombies cannot use their full power. Look back to the Orochimaru vs Third fight, it was blandly stated. Besides that, you probably cannot seal a beast inside of a zombie.
Most powerful Captain (alive) power ranking
5. Soi fon
royal guards not included
I think Äs is into NTR.
Just look at his fucking face in the last panel.
lol? He got lucky on the power roll but never ever showed anything that allows him to be so high in the list.
Time to sleep for me, folks.
I can't stop laughing
Soi fon, Toshiro and Mayuri are too high, they should all be below the vizards.
She appeared in the omakes years ago.
I thought so too but after the fight against Banbietta..Aizen was right, the vaizards are all failure
I wouldn't bet on it!
So which is it? They are both very different translations.
Well, NaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNa at least seems to be a nigger.
Wait for the most broken bankai ever. Shinji is strong he just doesn't try enough
I don't know, but I'd put my money on stream.
They're both shitty scanlators, but I think MangaPanda might be more accurate considering the facial expressions. Also
Mangapanda is too much shit, I'd say Negrostream.
>block your amigdala with kido
>no fear lol
It would be the equivalent of Superstar busting his eardrums, but I don't think Kubo will do this
>All about Rukia for at least the next 2-3 chapters
Somebody remind me to pick this back up in a few weeks
So I heard you like fear?
The Understanding, yeah
Because he watches U and finds out everything about U.
>implying Kubo isn't Oda isn't Kishimoto isn't Kubo.
So you can read the best character's big moment without having to wait between weeks? Good idea.
Mangapanda managed to translate things to the direct opposite of what was said.
Kubo will do something like my bankai ability is to absorb fear and transform it into dances
please stop my sides can't take this
>tfw shitty translations are easy to find but raws are impossible
>I had intensive skull fucking my amygdala are so sore I won't fear anything for a month or two!
Potential new OTP anyone?
He's black, so Kubo will totally do it too.
I'll be in physical pain if this happens.
Understanding seems to work. He watched Renji, and his power of understanding means that even while sleeping he could analyse the body language to understand his fighting style, and the openings in his defense. probably shit like "when you breath you shoulder slipped for a picosecond, meaning you have a muscle imbalance that breaks your guard when you do that move"
I ship it.
By the end of the manga I predict Rukia will become a full blown man.
Not that guy but I literally only read this shit for Rukia, Urahara, Aizen, Kenpatchi and Isshin.
Everyone else is so fucking boring.
Urahara is the final final
To be fair, Bambi was really strong.
Komamura only won because of FGT: Kibbles Edition making him literally unbeatable, and even then it was her own explosions that took her down more than getting hit directly by his bankai.
The horrific doujins!
I still think that after the vizards are healed they'll realize they need to actually use their mask/bankai.
>Will never happen
>skullfuck Royal Training with bearded Monk
His power is being from Florida.
I'll get this framed.
dem bedroom eyes
It's clear that Najakoop is actually Based God.
Hey, wait. Does this mean that all the clothes on Renji, Rukia, and Ichigo are basically meaningless and will be thrown off as they fight? Because that's what it looks like is happening.
>Renji also had to do it. And Ichigo. And Biyakuya
>that was Shutara's job.
I want to protect that smile
It's just racist enough that a Japanese man would write it, and behind the times enough that he still thinks super-abbreviation is a black-only thing.
Was it ever?
Ah yes, the early days of Bleach when you think Soul Society is a good place to live after you die.
Would you let Rukia fuck your boypussy?
Please, deliver it Kubo.
Write a doujin under an alias and upload it you're self, we all know you're lurking.
>Implying there will be any new Bleach doujin, ever
seriously, Japan doesn't care anymore. None of the big 3 gets pictures these days except from shit like palcomix. It's kind of depressing, so much missed opportunity.
>will never be scanned
Fix'd for you.
Can someone explain the love for Rukia on this board to me?
I've never understood it. She irritates me on every panel she is in.
why would she say the soul society is a good place when she was in nearly the worst part of the rukogai for the most part of her life? Liar bi0tch.
Thats still way better than roaming as a spirit until you get killed by hollows.
It's shame because she's the hottest Bleach girl.
>I'm lonely! I'm so lonely!
>I bet your greatest fear is your power not working!
10/10 logic right there
Rukias been massively popular in the fandom since I started reading it in 2004.
This is hardly something unique to this board anon.
I'm pretty sure she's even more popular with Japanese fans
Yeah, because we usually flaunt our greatest fears.
Well explain the global love for her then. It's something I cannot comprehend.
That sounds like Dioego observing the racing horses in SBR.
Maybe loneliness is Rukias greatest fear and thats why he was saying it.
It's Kubo logic.
See, he knows that if people are afraid of him, they'll acknowledge him. But if they don't, he's completely generic and has nothing to make him stand out, so he's boring and uninteresting, no one wants to hang out with that.
So his greatest fear is being lonely because of his powers not working.
>all this mad
Absolutely fantastic. I love all the 'this is the last straw kubo' in particular. This is going to be the best fight in the series, and the retard half of the fan base is going to sit on the sidelines sobbing and wanking over their precious shonen power level garbage.
Godspeed noble kubo, do what you do best.
>Yoruichi will never rub her head against your leg in her cat form
shouldn't her bombs have gone directly to her, because when she thought to bomb everything to the outside, shinji was messing with her senses?
I think kubo slipped there.
What if her greatest fear is losing Ichigo? The next few chapters could make or break shippers.
People have different taste to you anon. Its as simple as that.
Oh shit. Get hype.
Well even when Rukia confesses, landwhale fujoshits will find a way to delude themselves into thinking that her REAL fears had nothing to do with Ichigo and she only made them up to fool As Nodt.
Explain them though. Surely people who like her are able to explain why they like her.
did you ever expected otherwise?
Different and better
Didn't she already cope with that back in SS arc? Seriouslt all her former experiences had her having to deal with loss, so at this point this thing is deja vue at best.
Fair enough. Of course you're going to feel like your taste is better than other peoples. Its natural to feel that way.
Still on Snake way with the Snake Princess in the hot springs.
It's the Ugly. His name, his teeth, etc. His power is repulsion.
>this is the last straw kubo
kubo being the last strawhat would make me read OP again.
I think considering his power might have something to do with observing, The Understanding is our best bet.
The more he Understands someone the something something something.
>being so insecure you literally order people to explain their taste to you and you demand them to stop having them unless you tolerate and tell them they can
How immature are you? 6? 8?
I don't know, it seems more likely that it'd be, if at all, fear of making him put his life on line for her. Inadequacy, I believe.
So can you or can't you explain why you or others like Rukia?
We've found the typesetter for this chapter.
I'm gonna go with Understanding as well, every time there was an obvious one its been it, Kubo hasn't been going that deep with the names.
I think her greatest fear will be Ichigo losing control over his hollow and her having to kill him like she did Kaien.
>What if her greatest fear is losing Ichigo?
What if Kubo decided to do something not predictable as fuck and have her greatest fear not revolve around the shining shit that is Ichigo?
inb4 her greatest fear is Byakuya rejecting her or some shit like that
>I think her greatest fear will be Ichigo losing control over his hollow and her having to kill him like she did Kaien.
And then she'll just cut right through it and As Nodt because she has complete faith in him.
Reminds me of Kite from .hack
What if her greatest fear.... is clowns?
Keep deluding yourself.
Ugh, you could've just posted a non-3D Pig Disgusting one, Anon.
The glasses make this more convincing, I think.
>SUPA SAIYAN SWAGERRRRR
It fucks with perception, not physical actions. Someone trying to move their left arm up will still move their left arm up, they just might perceive it as moving their right arm down.
Rukias greatest fear right here
Soulja Boy tell 'em.
The hell is that?
who /tired&justwantstoskiptobossfight/ here?
If training with the Royal Guards don't give people bankai then it's all for naught.
>wasting all that delicious animal meat
>tfw quit bleach back in 2011ish
are shinji and the vizards still alive?
yes, but they're shit tier gotei now
yfw nodt is female. also i thought nodt looks like unohana too.
At least Mashiro is Super ViceCaptain tier
this pleases me
>beaten by autist babby
>doesn't even show up anymore as VC
Did we ever get to see her Shikai?
so you think Rukia not fearing is the asspull. how 'bout Nodt's needles suddenly popping in black fear goo. black fear goo, gentlemen!
she keeps it in her vagina so only Kensei ever saw it
She never even unsheathed it.
RIDER KICK ALL DAY
her greatest fear is dying a virgin
Everyone did at first, then he used male speech and Kubo confirmed he was male when he was in Germany.
>beaten by autist babby
So was Kensei, a captain. In bankai.
>doesn't even show up anymore as VC
She is literally Super Vice Captain, she was shown with her mask on, beating the shit out of Hisagi for his bankai training, do you even read Bleach?
>used male speech
what the fuck does that even mean
the fuck, it fucks physical actions too, if you want to advance you move backwards and so on.
I mean in battle, fucktard.
he started cumming fear all over rukia.
I assume he used 'boku' or something like that.
>As Nodt not even in first power-up mode / reveal Vollstanding / go full apemode
>believing Rukia will win / not job
>not knowing about male/female gendered words
"Ore wa" and "Boku wa" faggot.
She's going Yoruichi style: Super Sentai edition
Fuck I wish she had fought Superstar alongside bankai Hisagi
Pretty sure she already died a virgin.
>So was Kensei, a captain. In bankai
Yeah, but everything beats kensei. His endless punches weren't nearly as strong as Yamamoto's regular punches.
I want Rukia to job so badly
Words have/had gender in most languages, anon. We still retain some of it in English.
>His endless punches weren't nearly as strong as Yamamoto's regular punches.
It's really sad when your Bankai is weaker than some old dude's normal punches.
>Words have/had gender in most languages
Not the case in Japanese, though. Not intrinsically.
I kinda hopped Bankai Hisagi would ks Renji for shits and giggles. You know so we got to see Renji's new bankai, but none of the abilities, due to Hisagi fucking Mask whilst he was paying attention to Renji's release.
>focusing on Renji / Rukia for the past two months
how about finishing up the other matchups before narrowing down to the heros. Rukia saying she doesn't sense anyone nearby. pls. is everyone suddenly having tea?
Right back at ya, kid.
Really? So the words don't have gender, it's just certain words are used by men and some by women?
>instant Rukia win
I'm.. I'm happy, I guess? But it could be.. better? We need some more buildup here, Kubo.
pls I'm a fucking girl, are you so clueless after all in how to adress people properly
going full apemode NEVER works in Bleach
Unless it's Hollow Ichigo
There are masculine and feminine styles of speech, neither one necessarily means the person is that gender.
>*shitposts unrelated meme*
it's not supposed to work, I was saying Nodt is not even close to final form or going fully berserk and by then Rukia will probably be long mindraped, even after going Bankai, and Byakuya perhaps returning to finish it
>Rukia jobbing while Renji's victorious with no sweat whatsoever
if Renji loses to NaNaguy, fucking swear...
It's going to be a few more chapters yet. He still hasn't released his ultimate form.
Give it one chapter for her to explain why she's immune and attack, another for Nodt to survive and go Vollstandig, and another for Rukia to easily beat it and kill him.
More if he gets a flashback before dying.
yes, and drinking sake.
I want to know what the guy with the burning fingers is doing.
>newfag butthurt because he doesn't know about gendered words in languages
What language do you speak, monkeynese?
Renji was victorious with no sweat because three people already jobbed for him by then, plus big power up Bankai. Rukia is facing Nodt having a full health bar and at least three powerups to reveal.
Not just that, but there are also multiple levels of politeness and styles of speaking based on a variety of factors including the relative social positions of who is being spoken to. That's not too unusual, you'd speak differently to your boss than your friends anyway, but Japan has whole different sets of vocabulary and verb conjugations for it.
waiting for Isshin
i mean who else to burn his ass
That reminds me on some people who accuse of Kubo being sexist because there are no significant female characters in Bleach.
Most guys don't go around using "atashi", just like most women wouldn't go around using "ore."
"Watashi" and "Boku" seem kind of gender neutral though.
poor Kensei, he looks like a badass, but jobs all the time. Same with Shinji. The vizards are cursed
and an almost different language to talk to the emperor.
>because there are no significant female characters in Bleach
Are these the same people that called Kubo sexist because Orihime is a healer and because she had a mental break down when Hollow Ichigo went beserk?
gee, if only there was a fire based force of nature heading there now
>His endless punches weren't nearly as strong as Yamamoto's regular punches.
That's really sad
Orihime has the power of a god and yet she's complete shit even in the arc that was supposed to be all about her amazing power.
Give a Jojo character her abilities and he'd be running this shit
I remember when I thought Shinji is like a mini-Aizen because of his Shikai.
Prediction that Shinji's Bankai would be replacing the enemy's senses with his own. They'll all see the battle through his perspective and when he gets wounded, they'll feel the pain too.
that didn't really answered anything. you need either someone based or someone to match his powers to beat Bee. and there's no one left atm.
True, but it's not an absolute. I had a female roommate in Japan who was a karaoke bar singer/drink pourer who used "ore" in her offtime.
I find it amusing the "omae" and "temae" are actually really polite when used in the right contexts.
Kubo dreams with writing like Araki.
But at least he's better at long-time story planning.
Yep. Because both the "female healer" trope and the "damsel in distress" trope.
>Give a Jojo character her abilities and he'd be running this shit
That can be said about any character in this series.
>Prediction that Shinji's Bankai would be replacing the enemy's senses with his own. They'll all see the battle through his perspective and when he gets wounded, they'll feel the pain too.
That would be a really shitty bankai.
It's weird because most of the female cast i Bleach is incredibly free, loud, feminine but strong willed at the same time. Sure the powerlevel usually give them 3rd seat at best but as far as characterization go there's nothing especially sexist in bleach.
Wait, hasn't it already been half a day by now? Renji slept through the night. He should be here any minute.
To be fair, when the motherfucking japanese Osiris punches you, you fucking die. Unless you are Nazi Jesus.
>"damsel in distress"
If you count Ishida's role in the Bount arc, pretty much every character in Ichigo's harem has been in the role of damsel in distress.
pls this isn't Fairy Tail
>muh reiatsu away anything
I fucking hate this shit so much.
out with you
>ain't no shame in kingin like kong sometimes
>ay yo this beat is bananas
>Sure the powerlevel usually give them 3rd seat
All the rage when the only powerful female character in Bleach died just to boost a male character's powerlevel.
>this swagged out man is the head honcho
They should start counting it like 'power level' in dragonball so we don't need to discuss it anymore.
this reminds me, pompadour man wasn't afraid of unohana reverting to her role as kenpachi? why was he trying to piss her off when they got there?
>not enjoying Ishida taking the role of damsel in distress and wanting to fuck a woman that looks like his mother
I'm gonna laugh in your face when Bounts become canon. Remember that.
That was such bullshit, the only time we finally see captain Mom fight is just for her to lose to power up that shitty Ken (and on top of that it was revealed he totally bitched her as a little kid)
If he did, Kubo will have harder time asspulling shit.
Maybe to tiease her, since she wasn't acting like a Kenpachi at that time?
I'd kill myself if this happens
Muh reiatsu only works if their reiatsu is way higher than the other opponent like Aizen vs Soi Fon and Kenpachi vs Ichigo.
Rukia can beat irrational fears because she's experienced and survived true fear before.
>byakuya did too
Byakuya knew the fear of battle, but not the deep existential dread where you're forced to question your own worth as a spirithuman and almost give up on living.
Hopefully we'll get introspection/semi-flashbacks showing this more clearly in the next few chapters. Come on Kubo, you got to do all your little luchador chapters, now pace yourself with the Rukia man, let's not make this a one-shot
>the only powerful female
Harribel (more or less), Yoruichi, Shutara and Hikifune say hi
Because he's a Royal Guard. And a Royal Guard ain't afraid of nothin'
and the spirit king
You could count Ishida's role in the current arc, too. He basically did the same thing as Orihime only with less compulsion.
bounts are canon, Kubo just renamed them "full bringers" and adjusted their power to fit his world better.
>make this a one-shot
for Nodt, perhaps
think any of the RG were part of yamamoto's eleven?
Fuck, didn't notice that the image got cut at the bottom.
Will Riruka ever return or does Kubo already forget about her?
Sales/rating will skyrocket now that rukia is fighting, you'll see anon-kun.
>The Bounts (バウント, Baunto) are a group of Humans that live by consuming Human souls (Pluses), as well as Shinigami and Quincy souls which potentially increases their abilities.
the bounts are little juhas.
>Naruto still not out
can't believe this fucking shit
Soifon is pretty strong despite having a terribly annoying personality. Unohana was also top tier. All the "kidou geniuses" are female as well. they are just allowed a limited number of victories because it's a shounen manga, but compared to, say, Naruto or even One Piece, Bleach girls are doing extremely well.
>Ishida has been the true damsel in distress all along
>Rukia/Ichigo and Ichigo/Orihime fans faces when Ishida wins the Ichibowl
> All the "kidou geniuses"
except aizen, urahara, tessai and hachi.
I can't wait!
I can live with that.
Also, satsuki best grill.
>Implying you wouldn't
I can't believe it. I'm in fucking shock.
That piece of shit fake spoiler that we've been fed for the past 20 chapters about Rukia vs. As Nodt actually came true. What the fuck.
>Ishida was a reverse trap all along
JoJo levels of power-usage in Bleach would be fucking amazing.
Hitsugaya tried with his vacuum-ice, though.
>Kira fucking around with weights
>Matsumoto's ashes choking and poisoning people
>Momo and Nanao putting traps EVERWHERE
>Shinji's whole inverted bullshit
>Harribel sucking people dry
>Rose's bankai using infra/ultrasounds breaking people's minds and bones
>Shinsui rusing the fuck out of everyone
Harribel was jobbed to ice-shota when she could have just killed his ass intead of playing pool games with him, then she got captured and gangraped by the jew-nazis
Kubo been reading our suggestions too much.
Suggestion: Rukia's Bankai remembers a dildo somehow.
He was her onii-chan's former opponent.
How did you see that NOT coming?
I would with a force of one trillion burning skeletons
bleach confirmed for best of big 3
>somewhere in the next chapters: Rukia's Bankai as a cliffhanger
Aizen would become even more of an overpowered douchebag.
I really don't know how Kubo does it, another chapter where nothing happened.
>Renji took a nap then woke up
>Allusions to a future fight are made
>Rukia gets confronted by As Nodt
>As Nodt powers aren't effective
bleach powers are way to overpwoered to be used in a JoJo way.
It would be awesome though, brute force has too much relevance in bleach fights.
Rukia's bankai is a giant robot made of crystal clear ice, and she pilots it naked, floating in a tube of water.
>I don't need a bankai to win against the likes of you.
RUKIA POWERUP SPECULATION
>byakuya gave her his power
>0squad unlocked her bankai
>ichigo's shortsword is a reiatsu bundle meant to pay her back for chapter 1
Harribel has even worse luck than Shinji fighting, except that Shinji actually makes a lot of mistakes.
Is it me, or is captcha in impossibru mode since yesterday?
>conclusion of last fight
>introduction of new fight
It's not rocket science really. We aren't going back to Urahara and Ichigo until all the smal fries are dealt with and Juha's army is only Ishida and Lord toofsy, and maybe a "surprise element".
>not having a 4chan pass
I just didn't think it would ever happen. It didn't seem Kubo enough.
If she jobs though and has to be rescued by her brother I'm going to throw my laptop out the window.
>giving Moot money
Toppest of plebeian scum.
>RUKIA POWERUP SPECULATION
She can attach her ribbon to any zanpakuto to make a pact for a temporary union and dual wielding powerup, it's called "the white marriage".
And of course she will use it to dual wield her brother's sword.
Kubo mixes his Kubos with predictable situations, for maximum unpredictability
Well, tricks can be competitive when the users are good enough, like Hachi, Aizen or Mayuri
Byakuya is unlikely to show up since he was behind Ichigo on the Royal Guard recovery training circuit, and Ichigo still hasn't arrived. Ichigo is more likely to save Rukia than Byakuya, but I don't think either is probable.
In fact, Ichigo might arrive just after Rukia's victory, for a change.
>Harribel sucking people dry
Fight me m8 1v1 rigt now step outside
Byakuya should be fucked dead
Byakuya isn't coming back. He's essentially "dead" for story progression purposes. Kubo wanted him to die originally, and was forced to keep him alive by his editors. So he'll appear in flashbacks or commentary to give some advice, but he's not going to be contributing as a fighter anymore in this arc.
I fucking hate Fujoshi shits.
dunno, I could see him comming back, but after his near death experience he decided to stop the "loyal guard" bullshit and go for what's important, meaning he becomes cheerfull like in his younger days. This will shock rukia at first but then she also break her "cute girl" mask and they both bro up cheerfully
byakuya's job is now to say "gud job rukia i knew u culd do it ur the best imouto" and then she'll shed two tears that will sparkle away into the wind
There's still quite a bunch of SR left, right?
The bambitches (including zombiBambi or Bambi is eaten twist, and Z is overpowered twist), Colonel Sanders, guy-who-attacked-Ukitake, Burning Fingers, Descartes...
-Red for confirmed dead
-Red/Green for unclear
-Yellow for current fights
I'd say Q is pretty much dead like all of Kenpachi's victim
Kenpachi a shit
But is he?
Is As Nodt by any chance Karasu's brother? Will As Nodt go SSJ when his mask falls off?
-I think s/he's dead, too, but the letter power is fishy (the Question), so there's room for Kubos or flashbacks. Or perhaps the joke is that we'll never know what it does.
-BG9 is likely to be dead.
-Bambi is either eaten for powerlevel, or zombie'd by cockroach-tan the Z
Are you sure?
>Or perhaps the joke is that we'll never know what it does.
That's the idea I have too and the longer I think about it the more sense it makes.
>This guy could scream
>This guy could morph
>She... well, ain't that a good question?
Jazz Domino was somewhere in that list right?
Rukia in that hat... makers her look like Ulquiorra. Then I got to thinking...
>Ulquiorra vs. As Nodt
>That is... the embodiment of fear.
>I'll show you the meaning of despair.
Does this mean he also wants to fuck Byakuya?
>I am.. embodiment of fear
>Despair is the source of fear
And then nodt was ded
oh shit I forgot about him
He's probably alive, Ichigo just rushed through him
They comment about how his reaitsu 'disappeared" though.
He is probably gettinfg dissected by the Lab right now.
I can see it
Pretty sure they were referring to Ichigo zooming away as the speed of IM BEHIND YOU, not Jacuzzi Dominoes.
wasn't it Shaz?
but he got offed before telling MC about the power JewGod bestowed him
There's also the Nazi with the Eye-rod
Well that doesn't really explain why the research division members are still safe and sound and not getting slaughtered by Jazz-kun though.
So why was it that only Rukia, Renji and Byakuya were allowed to go with the Royal Guard?
Renji was useless, Rukia was weak and Byakuya was comatose and yet these 3 were allowed to go and no one else except for ichigo? There were other captains and vice captains that had a lot more potential and reason to go with the royal guard and if they received those power ups then they would have stomped these quincies new assholes by now
The others aren't main characters.
Ichigo closest friends blah blah blah.
Probably something along that line.
11/10 for the effort, -1/10 for the shitty mouth.
I agree that he's probably dead/crippled, just not that they were talking about him.
Maybe they don't trust them that much.
There could be another Aizen in the midst you know.
Rukia has already stuck it in Ichigo twice now, strawberry has to marry her to preserve his honour.
(Speaking seriously now doesn't Ishida kind of have a thing for Orihime? Thats why he was so driven to rescue her during the whole Mexico thing above everyone else, Ichigo was more worried about "THIS ISN'T THE WAY I WANTED TO WIN BAAWWWWWW PLZ CUT OFF MY ARM AND LEG MR ESPADA!")
Now I want Kubo to bring Ulquiorra back just for that.
Joking, of course. I always want Kubo to bring him back ;_;
>"THIS ISN'T THE WAY I WANTED TO WIN BAAWWWWWW PLZ CUT OFF MY ARM AND LEG MR ESPADA!"
I seriously don't know what Kubo's trying to achieve by making Ichigo be like this.
I can't wait for when Rukia throws off those bulky clothes like Renji did. Hopefully she's wearing something really revealing underneath but probably not.
They're part of Ichigo's harem.
Ishida did have a thing for Orihime since SS arc.
Ichigo is honourable, it's something USA doesn't really understand.
does Kubo roll his head over a keyboard to come up with such names?
Still better than NaNaNaNa.
He uses 4chan captchas. It's a known fact.
So its better to adhere to stupid shallow 'honour' rather than actually save your friend from the enemy that you and your allies are fighting, the whole reason you are all putting your lives on the line in the first place?
Japanese are a fucked up country. No wonder they are dying off.
I don't think Ichigo one-shotted him THAT hard
I mean, 3 SRs survived Yamamoto's roasting, and Ichigo didn't give a fuck about this guy
Äs Nödt like I like it or anything... bäkä
Ichigo wanted to win by his own power and consciousness, having the high moral ground as well as the power to maintain it.
He won the fight but lost the battle, because he also thought he could save ulquiorra, which orihime ended up doing.
Bleach it's much more enjoyable if you read the characters as people rather than as plain undimensional characters
Bleach is a battle of personalities, yes
Ichigo isn't a person, he's a shitty MC but now he's lost purpose as a character since Kubo is such a terrible writer, Ichigo no longer has any reason to be the MC of the series... except for the fact he was so he just keeps getting all the powerups and has to save the day.
Its might even be worse than dbz when people like Gohan would get jobbed so Goku could be the one to finish things.
Oh hey Bones, how's that whole Soul Eater anime only ending treating ya?
>he's a shitty MC
Bleach becomes a thousand times better if you realize that Ichigo was never the MC.
He was the mc at the start. it would have been better if it had been rukia of course
Aizen was the MC all along, wasn't it?
Aizen was terrible, he's gonna come back as the heroes Vegeta and be even worse isn't it?
Make way for snow bunny bankai.
Her Bankai would be a million snow bunnies throwing snowballs at As Nodt.
Make it happen, Kubo.
Yeah, revealing isn't her style.
lol renji is gonna job next time we see him.
that ugly dude implies he is stronger than mask.
Hidden potential, blah, blah
>Wow they survived my bath and most people wouldn't they are all monsters, blah, blah blah.
I dont read or watch bleach. sorry
So Niggerkoop is Unlucky.
Ass Knot uses Senbonzakura Bankai but gets raped by Sode no Shirayuki Bankai. Rukia apologizes to Byakuya for beating his Bankai behind his back.
>Ass Knot uses Senbonzakura Bankai
How? By just using it.
He doesn't have it.
Why not? Did I forget something in between all the shit?
Urahara's pills. Check the chapter.
Yeah but how did they get the pill to Byakuya in critical condition up in the Royal Palace then?
Huh. Thought they had to get the pills to the people who got their shit stolen. How did they get to Byakuya?
Science magic. Or he was down there already, maybe? I can't really remember if they explicitly stated he stayed in Royal Realm after healing springs.
Probably just BULLSHIT from Kubo as usual. Somehow my mind didn't exactly wrap around what happened. Byakuya should still be up there, so how the fuck..
Can't wait to see Byakuya and Kenpachi.
>RUKIA GONE FOR A WHILE
>GETS A COLOR PAGE
>COMES BACK AS AN ASS-RAVAGING FEARLESS BADASS
That's because you're retarded. Kubo doesn't fuck around, he writes intricately weaved plot lines that the commoner can't understand.
It's fine that you can't comprehend his vast genius, but don't go around spreading lies like Kubo being bullshit, you filthy fucking pigu.
>Byakuya should still be up there
Not necessarily. He wasn't shown anywhere in particular after getting out of the springs. There was plenty of time for him to get basically anywhere.
But I am Japanese.. you are the 豚、クソ外人野郎
totally skimmed over the whole "whole fist in the ass" and dismissed it as normal Bleach stuff.
But I agree, if its not a flashback with Kaien, its gonna be a flashback where Byakuya is scolding her on fear or what not, she pisses herself in front of him and remembers the warmth trickling down her legs, thus melting the fear around her heart.
well played anon.
Urahara science ain't gotta explain shit.
I am a beautiful aryan male with golden hair and sky blue eyes. Know your superiors, you chink.
Rukia implied he would get molested by the arm lady.
Yeah, providing he'd go the same way they did.
Either way, he could get the pill one way or another.
Until we know more it can't be considered a fuckup.
>the shinigami are actually fucking up by killing the quincy as they're just making bach stronger
Can't the Shinigami ever do anything right?
He implies that the more he observes someone, even if they're just sleeping, he becomes better at fighting them.
Byakuya's probably left before Ichigo, so he likely received it in the days he was in mid air.
The question on everyone's mind: what new power will Kon return with?
This thread is saging, new Thread:
Grimjowl actually established that Ichigo likes fighting more than anything. Also, Ulq wasn't gonna hurt Orihime.
Fuck you. She's my waifu.
I want to see Kubo do a completely blank page and then do one with a little black and then a few more with increasing substance for her bankai reveal.
I want the battle to be determined by how he spills his ink.
