Bleach chapter 566 discussion, NaNaNa edition.
Why does he look so filthy?
U the Unhygienic
so he's indian?
Inb4 Ikkaku makes a comeback and fights U the Unlucky
It all makes sense now.
Why are some of the Quincy absolute freaks?
Why are the people from Soul Society all Japanese while their enemies are international?
Well why the fuck not?
Japan is the centre of the world.
Help me. I need more Us.
each enemy is from a given culture.
>why are quincies german when their enemies are japanese and mexican?
>why are hollows mexican when their enemies are japanese and german?
Because Soul Society and the area surrounding it is meant to be the afterlife.
Do they only let Japs into heaven? Is thats why its made up like an olden day Japanese ghetto?
Man don't be an idiot. The other places actually have people with non-mexican/german names and such. You are flatout incorrect in what you are putting forth.
NaNaNa is the U
He watches U and learns everything about U
we assume that heaven is full of white people and angels, don't we?
That's just as specific to our culture/religion as soul society is to Japan's
U the Ultranigger?
Pfft, Everyone knows Jesus was black.
I just woke up and read the new chapter.
>Rukia being badass
Is this real life?
why cant she feel fear guys?
He was mexican you doofus
Western heaven lets everyone in that sold their soul to the lord, and doesn't look like a shitcovered medieval village with a castle in the middle Reapers that looked like armoured knights with black robes over their armour and scythes would be way more badass though
Is all that stuff about rukia not sensing anyones riatsu implying that she ascended to the level above the standard quincy form and captain power levels? I remember they were only able to sense people on their own level or something like that.
Whats up with Rukias shitty serious faces? Looks like a dude.
No, this is hell.
What spooked Rukia so much, /a/?
you know what to do
He should have three letters: O.D.B.
Remember when Rukia had her own face and didn't look like Icefaggot with a feminine haircut?
A new consensus has been formed.
Why are some of the Shinigami absolute freaks?
Because she gained that somehow
Real name of her sword was probably "fearless moon" or some shit.
Yup, probably the same faces.
She could sense Isane, so no. The quincy made it hard to sense for spirit power by filling the air with dense spirit particles.
But they're not.
>Akon and Co.
Oh yeah, Mayuri won the "most normal" prize 50 years in a row.
But anon how do you know isane isn't insanely strong? I mean, just look at her captain.
>just look at her captain.
You got it wrong.
Just look at the plot.
Are you stupid?
They have basically a nazi doctor with clown makeup on as their head scientist.
The Shinigami have alot of bastards, crazies and assholes on their side.
No. You can't feel people massively superior to you, but we've got no indication that it works the other way around. Humans can't see or feel shinigami, but shinigami can feel them, after all.
>le blown back by Ichigo face
>Humans can't see or feel shinigami, but shinigami can feel them, after all.
That's sexual harassment.
I bet a bunch of reapers used their invisibility and shit to rape people on Earth during their patrols
Rukia was talking about how hard the Quincy made it for the Shinigami, and some chapters earlier Hisagi was talking about how they had indeed covered all of the Wandenreich with reiatsu to make it hard to find each other.
>Rukia, why didn't you come visit me after I lost my powers?
>Oh but I did Ichigo, I did...
Mayuri is the only weird one
His subordinates and Komamura are not human, but they aren't really weird either
You sound weird anon.
It was a given that Rukia was spending her off time sitting in his room 'invisibly',
watching him get undressed and shit while masturbating vigorously.
>His subordinates and Komamura are not human, but they aren't really weird either
>they aren't really weird either
Guys, Old Man Yama's seiyuu just died:
>kind of puts you in the mood for hot dogs, don't it?
>[Masakazu] Morita [(Ichigo's seiyuu)] said that he was at a loss on what to do, after the news of Tsukada's passing reached him. He remembered how Tsukada would always affectionately call him "Ichigo" instead of "Morita" at the recording studio for Bleach. He also remembered Tsukada's always smiling, bright personality, even though he would carry an air of dignity when he assumed the role of Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto.
I dropped this during the fullbring arc because I was bored/cringing/disappointed that it didnt end after aizen was defeated
I see that the series is still going on strong, though. Does that mean this actually got better, or are you all still reading this just because you're in too deep to back out now?
If the former, around what chapter number did the fullbring arc end so that I can get back on rails to the good stuff?
>all the good voice actors will die during our lifetime
She looks like Hanatarou.
Most of us think it's better now. Chapter 480 is when the nazi arc starts.
Unless you die first
Current arc starts at chapter 480 and it's pretty fucking awesome.
They wanted to fuck around with Rukia's gigai when she was brought back for execution. Like seriously creepy shit. The most recent thing is them being sent out to kill the commoners to maintain the balance of souls.
I wish Kotetsu had more screen time, I find her stupidly appealing
So we can guess fear didnt work on Rukia because her deepest fear already came true? The insane beating to his onii-san
Just marathon read the Fullbring arc. It doesn't take that long to finish. And yes Bleach has gotten a LOT better.
Have Hanatarou and Rukia ever been seen in the same room?
I wish Yoruichi had more screen time.
Not since the Soul Society arc.
do I have to? I mean, it seemed just like a filler arc at the time, but was there anything vital to the story that is going to make me go scrambling back to read that arc again if i skip it due to what happens in events later on?
Aw yes tall shy girl with short hair and strong eyebrows
Also I'm pretty sure Kubo gave her huge boobs but I might be mistaken
it really wasn't that epin
If you already read it once I don't see why you would read it again. There is a few things that will be relevant later on in this arc.
Boring and plain shit.
renji is going to beat the ripoff of tosen.
idiotic quincies are going once again to 'use' the bankai they stolen just to get their ass beat when their weapons are obviously better, still the real byakuya, who really should have died is going to make an appearance. With or without him, 'not so fearfull' girl is going to get pwned.
Not interesting at all, the black dude is completely shit, and fear girl is now shown as a joke.
Man can we move to something better instead?
Oh and Kenpachi is fapping or what? the dude never showed up for a while.
>not looking for 567 if it's those shit fights.
im sure your time is so precious that you can't waste an extra hour or two reading. read the fucking arc.
Doujins are enough for me.
I'd say it's pretty vital. Don't worry though, you cn finish it quickly if you marathon it. Plus you don't wanna miss out on Facebook.
no not really
>was there anything vital to the story that is going to make me go scrambling back to read that arc again if i skip it due to what happens in events later on?
Not so far. The fullbringers will return, but who knows if they'll actually achieve anything.
They were in the same room when Byakuya fought Zomari in Hueco Mundo.
Though, in all fairness, Rukia was unconscious which allowed her to astral project as Hanatoru.
So Nodt uses some sort of drug and he prefers Senbonzakura over Vollstandig.
Any guesses on just how freaky his vollstandig will be?
>Rukia is shown her deepest fears
>it just pisses her off
Fuck yes. But the way I see it this can go 3 ways.
Nodt showed her something that angered her, which means that she either overcame that fear, but doesn't like to be reminded of it.
Or she considers what she was shown to be impossible.
If it's the first then she could've been shown Kaien, or Byakuya.
If Kaien is reprised in the role of Rukia's most loved one yet again then the IchiRuki ship is as good as dead. Carreer suicide.
If it was Byakuya then her rage is justified, but that just cements her as a raving brocon and in the end nothing changes. This is the safest option.
However if Rukia was shown Ichigo then we're going to see fangirl rage for the next year from FLOL and tumblr. This option is also a risky one.
>being a disgusting pleb
Her fear has something to do with Ichigo. This is the perfect chance to show how much he means to her.
Maybe Senbonzakura complements him well. I don't think him going Vollstandig will change if his fear affects people or not. It's a pretty binary power. So Senbo is good for him since he can use his fear and attack at the same time
So Bambietta's girlfriends probably ate her because they know how Bach's powers work. They know that when Bambietta dies, her experience will go back to Bach. But if they eat her, her experience will instead go to them.
You are making alot of dumb baseless claims
>she see's Ichigo and Pompadour talking about her peach ass
Probably she saw all of her dearest friends dead.
>her fear is that she'll never be strong enough to protect other people's backs
>but now she's strong enough and kicks ass
>you showed me an outdated fear, foolish Quincy
>time to die
I don't think that we will ever see what she fears. We got to see Byakuya's instantly, but nothing for Rukia. Unless she bluffs, and can't handle Assknots next attacks
In any case, whether she sees Kaien or Byakuya or Renji doesn't have to have relation to shipping. It just means that, if IchiRuki was canon, she trusts Ichigo so much that she doesn't fear for him at all.
>Rukia shows up
>Doesn't just do nothing
>Doesn't job immediately
Is it actually happening?
Her fear is dying alone probably. But she has been there done that twice.
>Implying they just didn't lick her whole body to heal her with their healing drool, and Bambi just was embarrassed that they stripped her in public
How many years has it been since Aaruniero Whats-his-face?
Z is the zombie
she got stored as part of the zombie's power
That's what I thought too. She has an unshakable faith in Ichigo, to her he's invincible and maybe even infallible.
Ichigo coming to harm is not possible in her mind and thus any illusion where she's shown that will ultimately be rejected.
But going with this will make Kubo unpopular with a lot of fans, so it's not very likely to happen.
Kaien being shown instead is more likely, but then what does it say of Rukia who still lusts for the cock of guy who's been deader than dead for a long time?
>Just as planned
>let me show you my true power
>IF YOU WANNA SEE SOME ACTION stsrts playing
I don't know but he was way too weak for that fight to take as long as it did, so I counted that as her and Renji jobbing for a long time.
Dammit LoN, fear =/= love
If she sees Kaien, she might fear for his soul and heart - was it obliterated? Did it return to the cycle of reincarnation? Is she at fault?
Hang on, I'm gonna make another comic out of you.
Kaien already had his moment with her in the mexico arc. It's not going to be him. He's BEEN long gone. She's been thinking about Ichigo since the Fullbring arc.
Can't wait to see cockroach-tan and nazi loli fight.
not!Matsumoto is just lightning powers (Thunder signs, hair, letter T)
I don't have a strong opinion about not!Orihime
>we badass now
No, the faggot that took up Kaien's face.
That was even longer ago
I forgot that even happened so a long ass time
It's a bit cheap if she can just override the fear technique since Byakuya tried to do the same thing, and it was explained that true fear isn't something you can just overcome as it's primal and ingrained in the soul. Though I suppose you can't really beat that ability without pulling something out of your ass and being cheap, and the main way to do that is by either going the "I'm too powerful for this to work" route or the "Hmph, you wish to make me relive my fears is it? Too bad, I'm always living with such a thing". Though neither of those should work based on how primal fear was explained, it's still necessary for him to die that they should find some way here.
I don't think she has Bankai yet, she spoke the name of her sword to invoke shikai for one.
Byakuya feared Rukia's death more than anything. Rukia's already overcome her worst fears.
Why do Fullbrings all have English names even though the users themselves are not native English-speakers?
Well to be fair we don't even know how As Nodt ability will effect her yet.
>I can't feel fear
Which one is it /a/, is your waifu a sociopath, or a schizoid?
Doesn't explain Yukio, Riruka, clockman, Moe, Facebook or Ginjo.
hard motherfucker is more like it
she seent shit
One thing is clear as the day, Yoruichi will remain my most fapped girl. Bleach can turn to shit all it wants, but I will never abandon dat tan, dem curves and those neko characteristics.
Their fullbrings are named after songs.
When it ran /a/ compared it to stands from JJBA part 3 onwards.
But WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS with all the Non-Japanese souls anyway? You never see anyone who isn't Japanese in Soul Society, and the Shinigami are never even mentioned as doing their job outside of Japan. The closest you get to anything like that is its mentioned the one shitty vice-captain dude with the rapier happened to be a massive UKaboo as a hobby.
Yeah, Kubo was trying in vain to ripoff JJBA in that section, but he did it so badly even the fanboys started to ditch the series.
>You never see anyone who isn't Japanese in Soul Society, and the Shinigami are never even mentioned as doing their job outside of Japan.
Maybe Japanese Shinigami, or rather Shinigami in Japan, take care of only Japanese People?
But so does Byakuya
And Captain Tuberculosis
And all the other captains
That doesnt prove or disprove anything. If she got powered up enough that she can drop Sternritters then Kubo might as well give her a bankai rather than just roiding her shikai
What about Cross of Scaffold, Book of the End and Jackpot Knuckle? Those aren't songs.
Or an homage. And it was clear the moment we saw the complex armor Ichigo had that this was all temporary. Kubo likes simplicity in design. He wouldn't draw that week to week.
Has there ever been any indication that Rukia felt fear in the manga?
She's been borderline suicidal ever since Kaien died and every time she was at death's door she just sort of accepted it.
Book of the end and cross of scaffold are the only ones without a song.
Coincidentally they're the only swords as well.
But both Kubo and Araki love music. At some level, I think it was a homage to Jojo. Fullbring arc wasn't that important anyway (or was it...?).
How is she this badass? I would let her ravage my ass. Bless Kubo.
Also, who else is relieved that we're not getting another chick fight? Rukia is way too good for that.
Scandinavia has viking reapers
I don't think Rukia's ever been afraid before. Shocked, yes. But not afraid.
I'm happy that it won't end with bunnies. How many chapters has it been since Rukia actually fought?
No, we have Valkyries, regenerating boars and infinite mead.
Oh, how I've missed those eyes.
She was scared as fuck when Kaien got possessed by Tentacles.
Off topic, but just for fun rate the fillers of bleach in order from best to worst...not implying that any were particularly good.
That would be so cool if different cultures had different reaper organisations dealing with their dead.
What would modern America have? Like the old death being a guy in a black hood with a scythe look or something more unique to them like... Ghost Cowboys?
And we all get to fight each other to the death over and over.
Donte in Soul Reaper form
Burgers with swords
Make it happen Kubo
Pretty sure the sword one is good. I forgot what it's called.
Do you have a problem with facts? If Japan isn't blessing plus's outside of Japan the rest of the world should be drowning in millions of hollows.
I only watched the last one (Gotei 13 Invasion?) from start to finish, and it was bretty gud. But it's kind of unfair to compare it to others, because it had the budget from a cancelled 5th movie.
>What would modern America have?
A lynched guy with a sack tied over his head.
You already know the answer to that.
Since it's based on ethnicity (apparently) america would be divided. Injuns to the injun gods, caucasians to the European gods, etc.
Don't tell me that you're Swedish.
But never since.
Bergerman, he kills people by clapping ridiculously loud
We don't know the facts until we see what Soul King's real deal is.
>USA - Cowboys
>Germany - Landsknechte
>France - Victorian soldiers
>Muslim countries - Scimitar wielding riders
Can someone update that graphic with Rukia?
You should really just relax.
What's your fear /a/...
Why? This is interesting, don't be such a naysayer.
Seeing ur mum nekid
Now I get it.
All muslims go to hell, anon.
Norwegian as a matter of fact.
The term 'viking' was coined in Norway either way, it meant 'those from Vik'.
You mean Mcdonalds
The Gotei is over a thousand years old. Why wouldn't the European afterlives at least as old. Medieval paganism and weapons all the way.
Väinämöinen is the head honcho bard of the Finns btw. You think you can handle him? Too bad, you're sung into a bog. In mid air.
>Not from based Iceland
Why only a thousand years old? Are you telling me people only started dying in Japan a thousand years ago?
>Sado is a mexican substitute shinigami, where shinigami powers are close to hollow powers
The gotei-13 didn't invent death.
>talking about random shit instead of Rukia
Aww yeah, cleaving quincies wiht Zweihändern all day
>implying that's not the reason they fucked off to japland
Anyone willing to update the chart due to proper Rukia comeback?
Prior to the arrival of soul society (which predates Yama himself), humans in the real world who died went straight to the 'unknown'. The original progenitors of SS/soul king are responsible for creating the purgatory worlds, the separation of spirit-life from human life, and the creation of hollows.
But who was dealing with all the rapemonsters coming from dead people beforehand?
So basically the whole "Balance of spirits" thing is bullshit and a con to put it simply
Aizen was right, etc
>Delicious Rukia relevant in fights now
>First thing she does is ignore the broken bullshit power that can't really be ignored
Gotei is over 2000 years old and the creation of SS occured over one million years ago.
What came before that is unknown, due to the fact that no sapient beings existed on Earth one million years ago we may assume that Soul King is not the original ruler of SS.
Aizen is going to come back and save the day, maybe sacrificing himself so Ichigo can defeat the Soul King and then everyone will cry and say what a great guy he was.
Wasn't the "one million years" just an euphemism?
>Bleach Asylum bitching about Rukia being cocky
That site really has gone to shit.
Canadians get either Lumberjacks or Grim Reapers with hockey sticks instead of scythes.
It's been used several times, so it's reasonable to assume that no one knows when SS was created, or who did it. Or they know that SS wasn't always present and that it appeared some time over one million years ago.
They also get the standard issue mounted police uniform.
>not only going there for spoilers
>biggest fear is ichigo dying
>he's currently untouchable by the quincies until he reaches sereitei
I really hope its something else
Sometimes I like to check on the other half, but I almost always regret it.
BA split in two long ago.
Current BA is basically a faggot fan center of level 0.1 readers.
Rukia fans went to deathberry and that place is just a shipper forum.
>for something that comes out each week
>and nothing happens anyways
Ichigo wouldn't die even if you killed him
He would just get a new powerup
We know. It happened before.
Nothing that didn't happen before took place.
It was foreshadowed over 100 chapters in advance.
I'm placing my bet on "The Understand."
Who's he married to?
Yes we need a Rukia update. Possibly a Renji new bankai too...nah justRukia.
>best poster of the month, second place, May 2011
No thank you
THE CONCEPT OF LOVE
A pity Rose didn't understand
But cocky Rukia is best Rukia.
Bleach Asylum has always been awful. Its predecessor Bleach forums was much better but most people from that site got tired of bleach in the Mexico arc and left.
>Rukia goes from no bankai to being able to fight off people Byakuya couldn't defeat
This shit is so much worse than the 100g training Goku did.
ichiruki shipping? do i dare...
>where is...my senbonzakura?
The whole 'lonely' thing were Byakuyas thoughts to make Rukia feel uneasy, she would recognize her brother fear and thoughts, this fucker works with mind games after all. Its not like Rukia deepest fear is to be alone.
She already went through the Kaien phase to be brought up again, its either something with Byakuya or Ichigo.
My vote is for Byakuya, Rukia's deepest fear should be, seeing her brother suffer his fear. It cant be that her fear is Byakuya getting bitchslapped because this happened before, he never lost his calm until he met this bastard. So that must be it, and as it already happened, Rukia's fear already is a reality, which she has accepted (during her training) and now is ready to kick nazi ass. Anger is an effective counter to fear.
Byakuya's got a powerup too, so he's still stronger. Just enjoy it, anon.
>But cocky Rukia is best Rukia.
It makes sense though if you read the threads.
Its pretty inactive tbh. If shipping irritates you I wouldnt bother but they do seem to post up a lot of rare scans of merch and such. I think a few of them live in Japan
ROYAL NANOREISHI, SON
>Implying Renji can do anything against a character who's immune to THE HEART
Remember when Byakuya was fighting As Nodt he couldn't even use his bankai. He was at a huge disadvantage. Also Rukia hasn't even hit As Nodt yet and As Nodt doesn't even have Byakuyas bankai anymore.
>I understand jack shit about the heart
So did Ulquiorra.
He needs to observe it in order to Understand
Ulquiorra: Quincy edition
seeing as she came before Icefaggot you got that backwards
Oh god the feels...
Not sure if stupid. She had her own look, then Icefaggot came along and got uber popular with the fujoshits, then Kubo forgot how to draw her because irrelevancy and post-timeskip is Hitsugaya 2.0.
Is this the same guy who voiced the Dad in Sazae-san?
ur a faget
If his power is to call people faggots, then he must be browsing 4chan all day
So how hard do you think Rukia will job?
I don't think she will. I think Renji will job to NaNaNa though.
She'll win this battle at least. Then another Sternritter comes along and rapes her. Alternatively, Renji might catch up to Rukia and they fight back-to-back against their new opponent.
i don't think he will fight renji he will probably be intercepted by some other fighter
You are correct sir
Everybody should, she is literally the best waifu
Too bad they don't get made. Except for Purple haze but no one translates those for free anymore.
>yfw barely any decent non futa Soi-Fong/Yoruichi books
meh, Kubo's gonna pull a TWIST and Renji's gonna have a hard time with this guy cause of his ability, so byakuya will show up and finish the fight, telling Renji to go meet up with Rukia.
>Now you realize anime wont continue at all
If it does, it will be shit without him anyway
inb4 najakoop calls Renji a nigger
And Renji will call him Argentine
really glad that we're done with the irrelevant fights, at least for the time being. that was like 6 months of total crap. ive enjoyed the past few chapters
God-mode Renji should probably be on there.
>Chinese - Either barehanded monks or spears, glaives and chinese cool swords
>Brits: Death from Discworld
>Turks: Shamanic grim reapers
I can't even remember when I could get off to vanilla.
If they are riding horses, I'm okay with this.
And they shoot wolf spirits from their bows
I guess they would be like
>Shaman grimreapers on horses with wolf spirits accompanying them
>After they take the soul from the body, wolf spirit guides the soul
Very historically accurate.But they have bows too.
How about this, they use their bows for giving soul burial.
How do you know these?
Are you a Turk?
My family comes from an old shaman line so its family tradition to learn these. Normally its nearly forgotten but i took up an interest in it
So Rukia coming back even though it was a given, then doing nothing is worthy enough to get a spot on the chart, but the jobbing galore and Mask de Masculine are not despite sparking a lot of discussion and anal devastation?
Different anon here, shamanism is pretty awesome
Also got to see some ancient russian shaman outfits in an exposition, shit was amazing
With modern voice changing devices they will. They need to get a seiyuu with an alike tone and then its easy
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... but you're right.
Come up with a text then. The audience should wear Luchador masks, and maybe one Rose with a star shaped hole.
I like you.
They could also pull of abstract,poetic prophecies from dead you know which animal bones.
>shamanism is pretty awesome
Yep, one of the reason I'm watching Kyoto Ravens, even though they are just wizards under shaman name.
Shouldn't you guys be training for the shaman fight
Sternritter U "the uigger" NaNaNa Najahkoop.
The names come from glorious Spain you plebs
My great great grandfather was a supposed Werewolf and Vampire hunter in Germany.
We should team up.
from both countries actually
The Unemployed... fucking niggers
Why are you replying to the wrong post ya cunt?
Not the other guy but hes right, they are from Spain. If you guys just didnt know its okay, now you do, but if you are the retards that think Mexico is the only place in the world where people talks spanish you are dead wrong and need to have a better education urgently
The couch guys are all disappointed, their faces being Shinji, Kensei, Rose and Mask. I'm not clever enough to come up with something funny for that spot, but surely somebody should have come up with something by now, it's been like 8 weeks after all.
There's a big gap between the last two spots. Some people were saying yesterday that the Mask fight didn't deserve a spot because the chart is not about "This happened", and yet Rukia gets a spot because... "/a/ likes her".
>the Mask fight didn't deserve a spot because the chart is not about "This happened", and yet Rukia gets a spot because... "/a/ likes her".
This guy would own any of us though>>101155204
ur a faget
I was just saying that Spain isn't white.
I know that they're from Spain
Shamanism is nearly dead these days, its damn rare to see a people growing with
some oc for you fags
Hasn't been 500 years yet
Point in case - nobody cares. Nobody, literally nobody wanted to update the chart for weeks. Previously we had up to three different proposals for an update. That alone speaks a lot about adding anything between Komamura and now.
>mfw I still don't know what "the heart" is supposed to be
>mfw no face
I see it as the symbol of a bond between people, in all its shapes and sizes.
The Heart is the connection between two people. Hollows cut themselves off from other people and thus lose their hearts.
I suspected it but didn't think it was possible, because >/a/
Was it a Grange reference?
>Nobody, literally nobody wanted to update the chart for weeks.
Nobody that usually does it. There were suggestions but all declined due to the chart not being about "This happened". I'm not against Rukia being in the chart but she barely did anything in this chapter.
funfact, there were actually some kinds of tournaments each some tribes, do decide who will be the spiritual leader of the tribe.
There is a book my grandfather keeps. Its a history book of some sort, i dont know how read the language its written with.
Byakuya's gonna have to finish off Rukia's opponent. Because Big Bro, and also because that's what Byakuya does - He's the guy who always wins a rematch because he's a legitimate, balance-of-brain-and-brawn badass who is simply better than his opponents. Not because of some bullshit The Heart superpowers, or ridiculous plot armor, or cheap tricks. Just the measured and precise application of strength where it is needed.
He's a shitpile that should be doubledead
It's a Shaman King reference.
Way before Ulquiorra asked "where is this heart you keep babbling on about? If I reach into your chest, will I find it? If I break open your skull, will I see it?", Kaien told Rukia what The Heart was during the Memories in the Rain, Opus 2 flashback.
It is, in fact, the bond between two people.
Ulquiorra only figures out where The Heart is when he and Orihime reach towards each other as he disintegrates. It was between them all along.
Welcome to level 1, anon.
Don't give Kubo any more ideas. All we need is American Aizen fighting Japanese Aizen in a battle of Keikaku.
i think itd be better if byakuya arrives to see rukia deal the final blow to as nodt.
also yfw Nodt is female
Stockholm/Lima syndrome should not be considered something positive
Since when were you under the impression that all personal connections are positive and that The Heart had to be a good thing?
It's not about action, it's about impact. And of course it's highly subjective.
I mean - see Masaki's panels. I mean tits, shipping, yet it stirred /a/ up.
Believe me, I had his talk twice or so a week for past few months and nothing was really settled in discussions.
Why is Ichigo so goddamm slow?
So much for the speed demon who was going to shit on shunpo 14 times over.
shouldnt you be burning churches?
Well, anime sucked for sure.
It not for Faust, would drop it instantly.
I hear manga is good though, I should give it a read sometime.
Have you find your BESTO PLEYSU yet, /a/non?
It's easy to get distracted on Snake Way.
It's called character development, and it had nothing to do with Stockholm syndrome. Ulquiorra questioned Inoue's beliefs and she noticed when he understood them in his last moments.
Yeah, I can't realistically see Rukia losing a battle at this point. Though it is possible that Byakuya will deal the final blow
Hm. I wouldn't put it past Byakuya to have figured out how to hide from the quincy the way the quincy learned how to hide from shinigami, and Rukia knows he's there, which is why she doesn't think he'll "show up" if Rukia got killed. So she's going to dominate As Nodt and then let Byakuya have the final blow.
>yfw Ichigo ran too fast down the stairs and broke his neck
Mask de Masculine did stir some shit up. I know that nothing was truly set in stone, but you can't deny it had an impact on the weekly threads, and there were suggestions for the chart.
Manga's awright. Takei goes full retard near the end though.
Did you miss him skipping the stars and just jumping down?
>Ichigo caught the Japanese cold for walking around bare chested
why ichigo leave first and is faster than anyone but get there last
You fool, that is an illogcial answer.
There's nothing preventing a character to develop through Stockholm and Lima Syndrome, and not all development is positive
he had to use the stairs
>mfw grimmjow makes his appearance
I'm just waiting.
He stopped on earth to knock some boots with sporty spice.
Is that Rose or Kira on the table? Either way, proof once again that holes in the chest are never fatal
I don't think we even know how much time passed between Shunsui going to the human world and the Wandenreich taking over. It might have been a week and Renji and Rukia were already with Ichibei by the time Ichigo was fixing his Zanpakuto.
fuck I didnt want to upload that.
Princess Snake has him trapped
The development didn't happen due to the hostage syndrome. It had been building the entire arc and culminated with THE HEART, which is actually the worst translation and there used to be an image comparing like five different translations.
Of course it's Rose.
And we knew for a long time they aren't. Well, they don't have to be. Level of reiatsu is directly connected to how grave injury you can sustain without dying.
Ichigo left last.
Kira's hole was much larger, lost an arm and the entire medical division was ordered to wait at their barracks. Rose got medical attention almost as soon as he was shot.
Besto preesu is in your heart.
Love you too
So, do you think this is leading up to Ichigo vs Bach or Ichigo vs Ishida?
Isane <3 i hope we get to see her fight. shes an interesting character. probably the closest person to Unohana in the manga
She looks really sad now. It can't be lack of sleep because higher ranking Shinigami can fight for days. That and coupled with the fact that she's alone means that her captain really is kill.
its nice to see her get some character buffing. her shikai seems to be snow. what intrigues me is thatshes unohanas second in command. yachiru would have no time for weaklings. id like to see her fight
>yachiru would have no time for weaklings
>gets knocked out by ichigo barehanded from a single punch to the gut
I agree that Yachiru wouldn't take someone "weak" as her vice captain, but her division is charged with medical attention for the entire Gotei 13, so Isane is most likely a healer first, fighter second. She was did follow some of Ichigo's movements though, she was just too shocked by his performance.
So did sasakibe and second in command of the ansatsu corps... would you say theyre weaklings?
and the other couldn't even protect his own imouto
If she knows his name is äs nödt then Byakuya ni saama must have had the talk with her in the royal palace which get her immune against fear
but it also had arguably the toughest captain. when you think unohana is sempai to even kyoraku and ukitake then you must believe her second is one tough bitch
>proof once again that holes in the chest are never fatal
They got immediate care though. I might even think Rukia learned a few healing trick in the palace.
Unohana became captain of the 4th squad and devoted her life to healing. She was trying to distance herself from her violent past as much as possible, I don't think it stands to reason that she'd only accept strong fighters into her squad.
There is definitely a balance of spirits
There would be no reason for mayuri and yamamato to con each other
There is something to it
Choujiro was captain level, Achieved bankai before ukitake and kyoraku and was generally a hard motherfucker.
and now he's dead
guess he wasn't very good at what he claimed to be able to do.
He was supposedly good at wielding his bankai. Nobody said he was any good without it.
Since when do dead villains from previous arcs appear in the final arc?
Oh wait.. Naruto.
u for unseen
>Ever been dead
Level 1, please...
Since like 300 chapters?
In what manga? Clearly not Bleach.
Grimmjow is sword, deal with it.
Bad decision on matching rukia with Äs Nödt.
I feel that rukia should be taking on some female sternritter instead.
You are way too late. Grimmjow beeing alive was confirmed a long time ago.
Some people don't like this chapter. And I thought that rukia has a lot of fans. I suppose kubo does indeed make her too cocky.
*Yammy had a Fraccion, it’s the little dog you see him walking around with, his name is Kukkapuuro.
*Ulquiorra was a sociopath through and through, he lacked even the most basic emotions like fear and joy. He was also incredibly powerful for a Vasto Lord, he slaughtered the other Vasto Lords who wanted to kill him when he was born as a VL.
*Grimmjow is dead
*Nearly all members of the Espada were Vasto Lord class menos. (YES, this includes Nnoitra and the others)
*Every technique, or attack used so far in Bleach is explained
You're the only person who thinks this.
>*Grimmjow is dead
>*Nearly all members of the Espada were Vasto Lord class menos
hes not dead nigga. why dont you show us where he died if you are so confident? your other claim is debatable, theres no real solid proof of their status
>Some people don't like this chapter.
Who? Bleach Asylum doesn't count.
And cocky Rukia is best Rukia.
That's fan-made synopsis of Bleach: MASKED, I think? Wrong one on some accounts.
IIRC Kubo said that he wanted to kill Grimmjow early in the story, but decided not too.
Also, in pre-arc interview he listed him and Harribel as possible allies to Shinigami.
Why? Because only girls should fight girls and only boys should fight boys?
No, in war and like you have to be ready to wreck anyones shit and one of the most annoying tropes around is men not being able to hit a women in a fight or for the girl to only ever fight other female opponents.
This is poetic in a way. He wrecked her brother and now she's going to wreck him.
Some people feel that byakuya should be the one who put down Äs Nödt while I feel that ukitake should fight Äs Nödt
Yet another grimmjowisdeadfag
Grimmjow is alive you fucking retard, google it
No. Its good this way.
But nobody wants another Rukia chick fight.
>I feel that ukitake should fight Äs Nödt
why? they have had zero interaction at all. theyre not connected in any way. rukia against this weirdo makes some sense, since now she can avenge her brother and what not. thats better than....nothing in ukitake vs as nodt
Your 'some people' are really few, everyone is hyped as fuck with cocky rukia, shes about to surpass byakuya for the first time
It's a summary from databook UNMASKED
I asked this in a thread last week, but does anyone actually own the English edition of MASKED? I was going to buy it and Unmasked as a set until I realized Unmasked was never going to make it out of Japan.
Right, UNMASKED. The one that won't be released in English. I mixed them up.
I own English version of MASKED.
Just had a feeling that kubo will job her for some reason and I sort of want to see ukitake coming to rukia rescue since he was her squad captain and showcasing his strength.
I need to re-find those pdfs of the novels people kept posting in these threads too,
>Rukia saved yet again
Fuck no, why would anyone want this to happen? It's dumb as fuck.
It's fucking outdated information, Grimmjow appeared on panel after the first round of the Vandenreich war, he's alive. If you haven't been keeping up with the manga don't bother posting here.
Quincy pls go
Does it actually say anything about whether or not the Espada are all Vasto Lorde or not? Discussion on the issue last week was a dead end.
>not aztec warriors
>not presiding over spirit utopia that is essentially Tenochtitlan times 100
Direct quote: "Most of the Espadas are Vast Lorde, the highest class of Menos Grande", but supposedly (haven't checked that) originally it was That Espada are VL-level, as in as strong as VLs.
Not even a week has passed and now we almost have a full page of new pictures of Yhwach on pixiv. 10 new pages of content overall. I guess Japan really liked the latest chapter and the shota-wach reveal.
Are people really this slow?
Anyway how hurt is your tush going to be once Yhwach reverts to the shota King of harems and the good looking prettyboy who founded the Quincy clan in his final form?
This guy is gaining quite the fanbase.
I wonder. OMZ got younger the more powerful his release was, but Yhwach grew older despite gaining more and more power.
tfw Byakuya interrupts the fight.
As much as I want to see Rukia win her own fight, I'd be okay with her and Byakuya tag-teaming As Nodt.
But if he comes in with some "Stand aside, let me finish this" BS I'll be mad.
He's been out of the loop for 1000 years, of course he's going to come out looking like a raisin, he's recovering.
Besides Haschwaldth himself claimed that Yhwach would live longer the more souls he absorbed.
And keep in mind that OMZ got younger as he released his power, while Yhwach keeps his power sealed at all time and looks like an old fart most of the time.
Some of these are really good, not a fan of the YhwachXHaschwaldth shipping though.
A tag-team aint gonna happen.
As Nodt is fucked anyways.
Every Rider needs a mount. It's not in the picture, but during WW2 it was a Sherman tank and her crew.
>He's been out of the loop for 1000 years, of course he's going to come out looking like a raisin, he's recovering.
Shikai OMZ looks like him from 1000 years ago, so I don't buy this train of thought.
Yes, Toofsy said he'd live longer, but that doesn't exactly mean forever. Also the thing about successor may suggest he's aware of his own mortality somehow. Possesion/body swap makes sense too.
Too much loose threads, is what I'm saying.
I've never been very interested in ghost rider or any comics for that matter, but that page is awesome and the tank thing sounds neat.
What is your reasoning for this line of thought? As Nodt's words seemed to indicate that Byakuya is still missing his Bankai (not present in SS to receive Urahara's hollow pill) so its safe to assume As Nodt can still use Kageyoshi if so desired. Even if Rukia is immune to his Fear powers, can she really defeat As Nodt + Senbonzakura?
And before we go into the Bankai argument, even if Osho told her the name for her Bankai, I doubt that she has trained with it long enough for it to be the deciding factor in this battle, but I could be wrong. I simply wouldn't eliminate it as a possibility.
The pills were teleported to their respective destinations and if Nodt doesn't have the Bankai then it can only mean that Byakuya recovered it.
>Where is my senbonzakura?
He doesn't have it anymore.
Byakuya wouldn't lose if he had a rematch against him.
Rukia has received a massive powerup from the RG, I bet you she is stronger than Renji. We know she has talent unlike Renji and look at him now.
As Nodt doesn't have a chance.
A tiger can't change its stripes.
>saves people but eventually they still die
For fucks sake Kubo, why not just call him Jesus?
Because he's the father, not the son
Kubo literally spelled it out last chapter.
re read teh last chapter
NaNaNa always say he doesn't understand things.
U - The Understanding. If he doesn't understand your ability, it does nothing to him.
>Yhwh refers to Ichigo as "my son"
>Ichigo confirmed for Jesus
I think it means he relies solely on reason and observation, as he has shown that he lacks the ability to grasp abstract concepts, or things dealing with emotions.
All the Quincy are Yhwach's children.
Jesus and God are the same entity.
Ichigo confirmed for Bach. So Ichigo has to kill himself.
See, I was under the impression that As Nodt's speech was mocking Byakuya... I don't really see Nodt as the type who'd get lonely. But yeah, assuming AN doesn't have a Bankai means he'll probably lose.
>I bet you she is stronger than Renji. We know she has talent unlike Renji and look at him now.
Renji isn't talented but physically he's stronger and achieved Bankai much sooner than Rukia. Can't say for sure she's stronger than him now until we see her fight a few more opponents.
That's dumb. how can you not understand a simple cut?
You need to remember that Nanana is black.
>Yhwh is Ichigo from the future who went into the past to create quincies so that his mom would arrive and save his dad from White
I love Rukia but... she's going to get jobbed, isn't she?
So Ishida has had an initial carved into his soul. What letter do you think it'll be?
Also where the hell is Soi-Fong these days?
You don't get jobbed, anon. You job. It doesn't happen to you, you perform the action.
>Rukia's going to get jobbed
>Rukia's going to job
We already know he's the A.
And we just saw Soi Fong rek BG9 with her re-acquired Bankai.
Read Jason Aarons run. You won't regret it. Probably the best Ghost Rider has ever been.
Okay then, sure. Either way, I'm hoping for more Rukia because this chapter was actually enjoyable!
But then I know Kubo's just going to switch the perspective next chapter, as usual.
And if you're a fan of shonen action, read Circle of Four.
It's shitty, but it's got Red Hulk possessed by the Spirit of Vengeance riding a big-ass Harley while wearing the Venom symbiote.
Not that different from Bleach, really.
WHERE IS THE RUKIA ART!?
>It's shitty, but it's got Red Hulk possessed by the Spirit of Vengeance riding a big-ass Harley while wearing the Venom symbiote.
That sounds like a terrible fanfiction.
He also should score with... everybody fucked Emma Frost, so maybe Scarlet Witch? Scarlet Witch and Emma Frost.
There's a scrap of leather underneath that woman that says "if you can read this, the bitch let go of my wildly impractical character design"
>Bleach Movie 5
>Ichigo is living a normal life in Karakura
>Suddenly an unknown entity shows up!
>Ichigo thought it was a Hollow, so he dived head on
>It was another Soul Reaper on horseback who got Stray to Japan
>The Soul Reaper is Nuts, he thought Ichigo is a lost soul so they battle
>Scythe vs Dual Swords
>Soul Society decided to help since the Stray Soul Reaper is a one-man Army
>the Soul Reaper's name is Death
why isn't bleach doing this?
When will it be animated again
Because we would get another movie about lost memories instead.
>why isn't bleach doing this?
Because it doesn't make sense?
Because it's kinda stupid
>implying Ichigo would have a chance against Death
I would assume it's the opposite.
He noted in the last chapter that "it's the first time he observed someone this long" and that the observed is screwed.
Pretty much means that the longer he observes someone, the more he understands him with his The Understand power. What the power does mechanically is still up in the air though.
This is only conjecture based on the fact that his letter is U and a few things he said.
He'd turn out to be part-Death and part-Life.
Because it's too corny and Kubo would never allow it.
>Implying anything is too corny for the Kubo
>Implying if Bleach would go on after the Quincy suddenly Conquest, War, Famine and Death wouldn't randomly show up and start the actual Apocalypse
>Implying next Big Bad wouldn't be the REAL Yahwe
I was following that same train of thought, explains how he fucked up Rose pretty badly.
Although on that same line of thought, I did like how we were getting a lot of rematches (Renji v Mask, Hitsu v CangDu, So Fine v BK9) and I hope Kubo doesn't completely break away from it. I guess really all I want to see is Shunsui vs mr. KFC
Jigoku-hen is also corny
Ichigo's hell upgrade is lame and his fight with mohawk-kun isn't well executed, Ichigo vs Flame Mage is way more interesting than that of Mohawk's
1) The Hell Verse ruined basically any chance for Kubo to okay another filler-plot Bleach movie.
2) Applying a heavily Western concept of the afterlife to a Japanese-centric manga is asking for a bad premise.
3) Yuhabach and YHVW are essentially the same in current Bleach canon
Kubo outright disowned Jigoku Hen
>3) Yuhabach and YHVW are essentially the same in current Bleach canon
No, they're not. He named himself after a deity, that's it.
That's because Pierrot butchered Kubo's original script; he basically disowned the movie and cut ties with it after it released.
Well yes, but since the deity YHVW doesn't exist in the Japan-centric afterlife of Bleach the only equivalent is Ywach, or possibly the Soul King himself but I don't see that happening.
The way I see it is that Bleach canon doesn't actually subscribe directly to any common understanding of the afterlife, but draws from multiple sources to create it's own uniquely flawed take on life after death.
That's not how it works. Calling myself Odin, despite him not existing in our world, doesn't make me an equivalent of Odin.
Well, I knew about 1, but 2 might be pulled of well.
Who would fight whom?
Ichigo vs. Yahwe is obvious, maybe include Ichigo vs. Gabriel/Michael or some other angel.
War vs. Kenpachi, also obvious.
Famine vs. Mayuri.
Conquest vs. Byakuka (because of the king-thing)
Death? He's similar in concept to Yama (Hell follows after him), so he can fight Ukitake and Shunsui.
Didn't Soi Fong already fight a personification of death, whom she defeated by making him eat his own hand or something?
I don't read too deeply into bleach.
But Lab, we don't live in Bleach...
Regardless I think you're both taking my post the wrong way. I'm not saying "Ywach is the one true Christian God of Bleach because he says so"; I'm trying to say "there is no Yaweh in Bleach, Ywach is the character which best represents this figure."
Think of it this way; the "death gods" or "shinigami" of Bleach are not Kami in the traditional Japanese understanding, but they often draw from Shinto/Buddhism in their themes or abilities. Ywach is basically the western equivalent/ antithesis of this.
>applying a heavily western concept to a japanese-centric manga is asking for a bad premise
You mean there's no room for mezo-american mysticism in a manga like bleach? better let Kubo know.
It was actually Hachigen who did this with his special barrier/teleportation power, and yeah Barragan is probably the closest you'll get to a western "Grim Reaper" equivalent in Bleach.
If you want Multiverse crossovers, save it for your fanfiction.
>The biggest jobber in Bleach
The person I was replying to was trying to literally insert Biblical angels and demons into a Bleach crossover movie. As I said >>101166462
>The way I see it is that Bleach canon doesn't actually subscribe directly to any common understanding of the afterlife, but draws from multiple sources to create it's own uniquely flawed take on life after death.
There's a clear difference between this and what the other poster was proposing.
But then who will protect all pplz frum mexicans?
Elaborate and/or stop shitposting?
She literally gets the shit beaten out of her every arc where she hasn't been the damsel in distress like in Soul Society.
She almost DIED to the 10th fucking Espada because of her emotional attachment to Kaien Ishida, when she knew full fucking well it was just a Gillian wearing his face after he died with it in SS.
She got the shit beat out of her by a Quincy earlier in this arc.
The only fight I can remember her winning with a clear advantage was against one of Grimmjow's fraccions because the little shit stood still long enough for her ludicrously bollocks shikai to actually freeze him.
Face it, outside of her spell casting, Rukia is a shitty fighter.
It was the 9th Espada landwhale. His name is Kaien Shiba also re read the manga
I don't think you know what "jobbing" is.
It was the 9th Espada by the way, and she still technically "won" the fight; not only that but Aaroniero was still much stronger than her (the fact that he was Gillian is meaningless considering his ability). Plus she got great development out of it.
Everyone has had the shit beaten out of them by a Quincy this arc, point is moot.
She's only had maybe 3 fights and has won most of them- that isn't jobbing, it's actually significantly better than most Captain's current fighting records.
I think we're done here.
I love it when I check spoilers and it does not work
>Still technically "won" the fight
>Barely escaped with her life against the weakest Espada next to Yammy when he isn't engorged on souls
She killed him.
He did not kill her.
People struggled with fraccion, much more experienced people than her.
That's because Renji's entire job in life is to lose. I wouldn't be surprised if Stinkmeaner the Quincy takes him out with a watermelon or something similar.
>That fucking feeling when the only guy who didn't struggle with a Fraccion was that depressed motherfucker with Wabisuke, since he was so edgy he just didn't care
But he was Kaien. Same body (literally, not just the shape, but Kaien's body was part of Aye-aye-Dinero), same memories, same personality. Just twisted. That's the problem. It wasn't a doppelganger. It was evil Kaien. Kaien who had turned evil.
So, any new lewd/ cheesecake Rukia, Yoruichi, or Soi-Fongs outside of >>101167874
Why are you bringing up Renji? The one Fraccion he fought was one of his only victories.
Because the anon you're replying too is a stupid troll.
>Izuru didn't care
Holy shit, he was nearly a one-dimensional character and you still look the wrong way.
Wasn't Aye-Aye-Dinero just basically Kaien and the Gillian head inside the dick jar?
Not that Ive seen; the fan art has more or less slowed to a crawl when it comes to that type of subject matter.
No. Aaroniero was a Gillian that swallowed many Hollows, including Metastacia, who possessed Kaien and led to his death.
Yeah but he's not even trolling the right character or even trying to be stealthy, it's just sad honestly.
Then who the fuck were the two souls making up Aaroniero, since it was two personas inside of the tube? Glotoneria and Metastacia/Kaien?
can't beat this shop
Never explained. Maybe two souls retained their sanity when he was still a Gillian, which led him to this state and ability?
They were both Aaroniero, its two heads because he's a super fucked up Gillian that's basically just a power sponge. One head is "fear" and the other is "hate"; the most basic Hollow emotions.
Gillians a shit. I miss when the Espada weren't fucking headaches to contemplate like Barragan being basically the Skeleton King.
... I'll be in my bunk.
Dom Rukia hits all the right spots.
So the first "dance of rukia's shikia wast a "Pillar of ice reaching all the way to the moon" that sprang from a reflection of the moon on the ground.
If we concead that Moon is the stem of her sword not just Ice.
The moon does not emit light, it reflects that which the sun already gives off.
In this chapter she used an ice "Shield" that we have never seen before.
Perhaps its ability is not to stop attacks but reflect them back at the attacker.
Rukia isn't fearless she just hit the fear bikes back at mr emo.
Is that how this is working or did she just become plot armor?
Rukia has always had plot armor.
Kubo turned the plot armor to maximum efficiency. She was infected by the Fear that went through the ice shield but miraculously overcame it as if it were nothing.
So either all that damned food/hanging out with the Royal Guard gave her a ludicrous power boost to bullshit levels, or Kubo's really just that lazy to not show us what her vision was.
>not high middle age knights
England can be longbowmen
Scotland can be kilt wearing, claymore wielding knights
Scandinavians can be Vikings
I'm assuming it will be explained next chapter, but I think you're on the right track. 3 out of 5 Kubos for the /a/non with the enter key.
Ireland would be Dullahans
England would be the literal Grim Reapers
Murrica could be Cowboys/The old Hanging Judges
England could be Longbowmen like you said
Scandanavians could be Valkyries/Jomsvikings
Thanks i hope this turns into a lvl 3.5 reading thing, it wouldn't be first time my autism activated and kubo rolled with it.
>Nanana is actually gonna do something
>he probably wont get wrecked off panel now
THIS PLEASES NANANA
The thing is that Rukia basically already faced her worst fears. She was never really afraid of dying; not because she didn't want to live, but because she felt it was atonement for Kaien. And then she had to fight Kaien. There's really not much else for her to be afraid of; she would fear losing Ichigo if she didn't truly believe that Ichigo won't lose, or simply won't die even if he's killed.
... don't push it.
>Won't die even if he's killed
>Jehovabach literally has a deity sized soul and Ryujin Jakka
I'm wondering what sort of chance he stands against his Ojii-san without some kind of mile thick plot armor.
Going by that line of thought it isn't that She doesn't think ichigo can die, if he does die, he comes back as a full soul reaper and gets insta royal guard status
(so close to quads)
Plot twist kubo level, Old Man shows up as a Vasto lorde, later to be explained by some stupid bullshit.
Ryujin Jakka recognizes him and flies to him becoming a halfa like Ichigo.
I meant it more as "she basically has 99.9% confidence that Ichigo will succeed", not "Ichigo literally can't die". This has basically been her attitude towards Ichigo since the turn of the Xcution arc.
This chapter he was certainly The Unnoticed
I'd call it the Uninteresting.
>she licked her face
>Old Man Genocide reappears and becomes an Arrancar with Ryujin Jakka
>He turns into a flaming spook as his Ressurecion
>Ichigo releases his new Bankai, and instead of the minimizing of his reiatsu into the super speed bullshit robe/sword combo he's had all this time, he manifests the dark reflection of himself

THANK YOU BASED KUBO
Renji: Tiger-Striped cowl, indicates his brash/ violent personality.
Rukia: Pure-white cowl, matches her sword and theme.
Ichigo: Mix of black and white patterns, dual heritage and shit.
Have a feeling that Shutara, the weaver, makes all the Shinigami's clothes which represent their personality similar to their Zanpakuto. For what purpose, though? And how does Shunsui's floral garb come into play here?
That would be interesting.
He turns into his hollow self, there by acting more as a Ressurecion calling the true nature of his soul to the surface.
That would also show that he finally accept Whity as the true source of his power while his weird new bankia sword will be the reminder of his Quincy powers.
But lets not talk about shipping just yet, it kills decent Bleach threads.
Aren't his roses?
He likes beautiful things but the pursuit of them kills.
Like his games, the dangerous things look harmless.
I mean, his new zanpakuto shikai is literally a call back to Whitey's dual swords, while the difference in size is about his lineage between OMZ and Whitey.
I'd absolutely love it if Ichigo's new Bankai has him turn into Whitey, not as a Berserker like before when he kicked the shit out of Ulquiorra, but as a Hollow with goddamned Quincy powers like Blut mixed with Hierro
Samurai with a floral garb are a trope. Aloof cool nonconformist guy etc..
One I can remember specifically is Hyo Amano from Last Blade games. His attacks feature sakura petals.
>Ichigo gets ready to fire off a super charge cero,
>Everyone scared after last time,
>It turns into a huge cero bow, that fires off only slightly smaller ceros and balla
>Quincyfags super jelly of his pimp hollow bow.
Yes but supposedly it wasn't his originally; speculation had been it belonged to a woman once.
Plus remember, although Shunui likes rose petals, liquor and romance on the surface, don't forget the Shunsui who killed Starrk; the one who will stab an enemy in the back for a victory.
Oh hey Bleach Quest.
Now we know why Rose lost to him
Keep your god damn mouth shut
So, haven't read the theories yet since the Juha reveal but is it assumed now that Juha is somehow related or created by the Soul King and that the Soul King's power is similar to Juha's?
I have a feeling the Soul King is feeding off soul society in some similar way and this entire Juha thing is to introduce us to the concept before the soul king enters the stage so the mechanism of his power is established.
The Soul King might've even be responsible for Juha so in a roundabout way SS has someone to fight, further feeding him.
Let's say that if Juha putting a part of him in his subordinates is also true for the Soul King and if he created Juha he'll gain ALL the power and knowledge Juha accumulated. Hell, maybe the Soul King is waiting precisely for that, the moment Juha dies and it makes him go to full power. Cue boss fight.
I think Ichigo's final form should just be "Human". Like, He has a total immunity to any Shinigami/Hollow/Quincy/Whatever powers. They pass through him. And everything is just reduced to a sword battle about speed and power, which he has the edge over.
>Rose's fucking Bankai
Well it doesn't matter who he got it from. His outward look is telling of his personality and his mannerisms match up with the aloof cool nonconformist badass guy.
In a similar way captain tuberculosis is also similar to that blue Samurai Showdown character ... Ukyo I think.
It's just general character types, they don't match up 100%.
I got that reference...
>Hell, maybe the Soul King is waiting precisely for that, the moment Juha dies and it makes him go to full power. Cue boss fight.
Maybe that's why he's so interested in helping Ichigo. He's the only one who can kill Bach.
can't be unseen
It's dead Jim.
Ukitake is basically Ukyo from Samurai Showdown, Captain Lazypants is the non-conformist badass...
I'd say Kenpachi fits in pretty well with Haohmaru since he's the typical "I FIGHT BECAUSE I WANT STRONG OPPONENTS, NOT THESE LIMP DICKS" character archetype.
Komamura, on the other hand is the unholy reincarnation of the Taco Bell Chihuahua with his spectral mascot, Don José.
I bet Kenpachi will be the one to take down Bach. It was foreshadowed when his sword was talking to him. And it'd be awesome too since we all expect Ichigo the main character to take down Bach.
>it doesn't matter who he got it from
Shunsui's past doesn't matter? Foreshadowing from Kubo doesn't matter? Are we reading the same manga?
>His outward look is telling of his personality and his mannerisms match up with the aloof cool nonconformist badass guy
Yes but you're missing the point; this is Bleach, where appearances are almost always deceiving of a character's true nature. A savagely painted madman is actually incredibly smart, a scarred, eyepatched brawler is relatively merciful, and lets not even get started on Aizen.
>It's just general character types, they don't match up 100%.
That's the point I'm trying to make; Shunsui is only the flower-loving peaceful samurai on the surface; when we see him without it, it's the ruthless veteran who fights to kill.
Hm, maybe Kenpachi is more similar to Genjuro since the focus is more on fighting.
Ya; no updates since October. Still dead.
So how creeped out were you when As Nodt referred to Senbonsakura as his?
>Yes but you're missing the point
No, you're missing the point. I said they fit in general jap character archetypes that are present in a lot of media, but they don't match up a 100%. Pay attention instead of getting argumentative.
Shunsui's outfit is a part of his character design and image. The guy from the video game also got his outfit somewhere. They're not IDENTICAL character, you dingus.
senbonzakura was his only friend : (
>confusing Mexico with USA
USA gets cowboys, deal with it.
>Senbonzakura is As Nodt's only friend because his mask hides how uncomfortable the fucker makes him with those eyes and lanky body build
>no "dance" command before saying the name of the zanpakutou
kubo is fucking up again
> The guy from the video game also got his outfit somewhere. They're not IDENTICAL character, you dingus.
I don't know why you keep bringing up whatever this video game character is, and I never made the claim they were identical. I get that the appearance is similar to other characters and that it's an archetype, I'm taking it a step further and saying that Shunsui's appearance and normal mannerisms familiar with the archetype is the exact opposite of how he fights in battle. This is most obvious from his fight with Starrk. thus the implication I'm making is that there is much more to Shunsui than the archetype normally associated with him.
So can I make an alt account and send that alt pawn back with super high level gear?
She (likely) has Bankai, she doesn't need to say the release command.
I am now imagining "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" as told in the world of Bleach.
At first I was just imagining Kenpachi because in my head I had him delivering the line "I done told you once you son of a bitch/I'm the best there's ever been". But it was Ichigo that Bach came to SS to try and recruit, so it kind of breaks down from the get-go. I mean, we can still get a flashback to some quincy or another trying to turn Kenpachi, but I don't see them giving him that much respect.
And mostly because Kenpachi is like, the closest thing to a country bumpkin that SS has.
Dragon's Dogma is awesome.
If only I could make a proper Rukia
>She (likely) has Bankai
Its possible but not likely.
>Everyone, I've met fears me, everyone I've met always has the look in their eyes that says they're frightened of what I am.
>But you're different, you don't look a me with dread or despair. You're the one. You're the only for me. And now you're mine. You'll always be mine.
Oops, wrong thread.
This is my Soi-Fon.
Oh how wrong you are
>If Japan isn't blessing plus's outside of Japan the rest of the world should be drowning in millions of hollows.
Given what we've seen of the hollow food pyramid of hollow mexico, it's possible that the entire rest of the world IS drowning in hollows, and that it's only not a problem because the hollows are eating each other.
If she can release her sword without the release command, just got a huge buff in the Royal Realm, has been a VC for 1.5 years and is the most prominent female Shinigami in Bleach, I'd say "likely" works perfectly fine.
She said her swords name when she released, a power buff doesn't help you with materializing your bankai and only a handful of VC have bankai, being new to the role doesn't indicate bankai in anyway. I'd say its a 50/50 chance that she ends up with bankai simply because of how popular she is, but its not close enough to act like she most likely has one.
>SHE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO GETTING Bankai baka 50/50 CHANCE
>50/50 isn't even close
>not knowing how bankai work
I think we saw a little bit of a Chekov gun here, Isane curing Rose. He will fiht him.
>vizards get healed up in time for the next wave of quincy
>realize they all got their shit pushed in without even doing anything
>next fight they go bankai and mask almost from the start
Just one time I want to see a vizard go HAM right at the start. LIke as the battle starts they just throw the mask on, use bankai and completely blitz someone.
Bankai with masks burns them up too fast some can't even use bankai in hollow mode
What the fuck is it to job?
>Bankai with masks burns them up too fast
Right, thats why they blitz and job the enemy they are fighting.
>some can't even use bankai in hollow mode
You made this up.
Jobbing is when you hype someone up only to have them lose easily to another character, thus hyping them even more. Like when Mask completely rekt multiple captains and then Renji completely rekt Mask, Rose Kensei and them all jobbed to hype Renji.
Actually Circle of Four is pretty good.That part is them trying to take down Blackheart, the son of Mephistopheles, who has merged Las Vegas with Hell in an attempt to conquer both.
Only in the loosest possible sense of "Captain Level". Ichigo wrecked his ass bare handed when he was still weaker than Byakuya.
Have you met Osho?
Ah, got it. So Rose and Kensei jobbed because
Rose, Kensei < Mask < Renji.
>Ichigo wrecked his ass bare handed when he was still weaker than Byakuya
You don't understand how Ichigo powerlevels work. Ichigo was probably more powerful before stopping the Soukyoku than he was fighting Byakuya.
welp... guess I'll see you guys next week.
he was far beyond byakuya until his own reiatsu started to damage himself
Should I make a new thread?
Reason is precisely why we CAN grasp abstract concepts. eReuni and
Yes please. We've been on a roll this week as far as actual discussion goes.
Masks drains Reishi at high amounts
Exactly; he was strongest at the point where Rukia was in most danger (ie. Soukyoku). His powerlevel actually decreased in Bankai since he it was too much for his body to handle, thus why his Hollow had to emerge.
>ichigo will never fight with his hollow forms fighting style of spinning the cloth
Ichigo is the moon.
So fast depending on the opponent they can ware themselves out really fast. Like whenit happen to Mashiro. But time skip and training and we have yet to see.
