Old one is past pump limit, new subject: discuss Tessai's zanpakuto
Why didn't they fucking use their MAAAASKS they were fucking fighting a guy named Mask it must've occurred to them.
nah, only gotei have zans
Maybe quincy attacks are super effective against their hollow forms. I doubt Kubo'd leave it out for this long without a reason
Kensei didn't need his before Mask powered up. Rose didn't either because the nature of his Bankai had nothing to do with raw power.
They aren't very good at it
masks are basically for incredible boost of power for a couple seconds, to overwhealm enemies you are completely confident in your ability to beat
like a 1-armed grimmjow, or a Gillian.
Not someone who is literally stronger than 95% of bankai users. You'll just burn yourself out faster.
I'm also not entirely sure they can use their mask in bankai. Not everyone is Ichigo.
But Kubo already did a thing where Hollow is supereffective against quincy. In fact, why didn't the vizards turning into hollows and injecting their zanpakuto with hollow power prevent their bankai from being stolen in the first place?
It just ended up being an unfortunate situation for both of them. They were both doing fine without the masks and then got caught off guard before they realized they were in trouble. Rose was doing perfectly fine until he stood there with his mouth open, surprised at Mask blowing out his own ear drums.
Ichigo was the only one who could only use his mask for 11 seconds. They mention he's the shortest by a lot. Everyone else ranges from a couple minutes to 11 hours.
>In fact, why didn't the vizards turning into hollows and injecting their zanpakuto with hollow power prevent their bankai from being stolen in the first place?
None of the vizards had their bankai stolen.
Kubo does it again, 10/10 foreshadowing, sasuga the master.
Reminder that the vizards never actually used their masks in combat situations until FKT arc and thus only knew the limit in a training environment.
Well sure, but when you're presumably outnumbered in terms of high level fighters you don't wanna go full double-edged sword mode when you know quincies specialize in obliterating the shit out of hollows.
we know that the more you use, the faster it burns
we've ONLY seen them use it when they needed to eliminate someone quickly though
with the sole exception of mashiro, who apparently takes to it like a prostitute to birth control
Ever wonder why none of them used masks against Aizen either?
Because Kubo's making it up as he goes and introduces so many characters he forgets how older ones powers work?
>forgets how powers work
that doesn't explain aizen, they literally showcased their masks for aizen.
>Ever wonder why none of them used masks against Aizen either?
People don't actually think this, do they?
Not using them against Aizen makes a lot of sense.
>Go all out on Aizen
>Couple minutes later after mask runs out
>Shatter, Kyoka suigetsu
>They just tired themselves out beating up momo's corpse.
If we haven't seen Tessai/Yoruichi/Hachi zanpakuto by the end of the series I'll be very sad.
I had forgotten since he never actually used it, and in his flashback he didn't have it either.
Perhaps tessai's zan was his staff?
that's HIGHLY unlikely
Hey, its something possible at least. I thought we loved crazy unlikely theories supported by random foreshadowing 500 chapters ago?
At the secret playground below the Sokyoku hill there were some Zanpakuto/Asauchi bundled together, but one of them was singled out when Yoruichi was speaking. Then there's an old theory that says the sandals Yoruichi wears are her Zanpakuto.
Do you happen to have the page? That sounds interesting. I meant actually see them used and their abilities more so than just seeing the sealed form though.
That page is all I have. If you want you can look for other pages showing Yoruichi's feet with the white sandals on and off when she's fighting. It's too late for me to look for them.
More like non of the vizard use Bankai in the first place because FUCK SHOWING THE READER NEW POWERS.
Many do. It's the reason why many people hate Bleach and can tell Kubo is a hack writer. It's also the reason why the ratings are dropping and the anime was cancelled.
>anime was cancelled.
Ooh, I actually was believing your post until then.
>implying shittily written manga aren't always topping shounen jump, if not that then guaranteed a long stay in the magazine
The anime ended when there was too little material from the manga to adapt to without making a season more than half filler, though
With Kubo's pacing they would have probably had to make 2 full seasons of filler.
Yes, because of shit pacing. A good writer could fit the content of an average Bleach chapter on 4 pages. Just do away with the random eye/finger/mouth-closeups, full pages of backgroundless explosions, and panels of feet.
You do realize that its his story and he can pace it how ever he wants? Theres no reason he should conform to help the anime not catch up.
pages like this really get to me when the pacing is as slow as it has been
At least there is a background
It shouldn't be a thing you praise an artist for, but it's the case with fucking Kubo
Whats your point?
>complaining about backgrounds
Seriously dude, you're making it way too obviously. Try a little more subtlety.
Yoruichi Zanpakutō, duh
I was talking about the actual shikai/bankai/abilities.
I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be seeing.
Haven't really seen him for a very long time.
Tsukishima is the best character in the fullbring arc. The way he mindfuck ichigo by brainwashing his family and friends.
I really would have liked to have seen what Kubo had planned for the fullbringer arc. My main complaints about the arc were all cut short.
Kubo will probably tell Ginjo and Tsukishima's backstory this arc. I'm still a little upset that Chad didn't get a fight that arc.
He can stop time he doesn't need that shit.
It's his moustache. It has the power to become a full grown wizard beard when he bankai.
He can have both, plus Hachi was his VC and he had one.
>help each other to get stronger
>with dem black high tight
yeah right they spend hours and hours fucking like beast, she's fooling no one there.
Also, his fight against Byakuya was great.
>tsukishima can change memories of things he cut
>juha's power is to absorb memories when taking back his soul fragments
>tsukishima is effectively the biggest thread juha could ever face he would just have to cut quincies once to "poison" him with distorded pasts.
>implying bleach final twist isn't tsukishima altering juha's soul so much with his presence that he becomes juha.
>>tsukishima can change memories of things he cut
He doesn't change memories, he inserts himself into their histories.
Well if Bach absorbs a Shinigami's memories that saw Aizen's shikai then he's pretty fucked also.
or more likely he quincy-fies one of the former Espada.... like Harribel
the most you can expect is for YHWH to complete her broken soul
turning her from an arrancar to a complete shinigami
>turning her from an arrancar to a complete shinigami
I can't see that happening. Arrancars are not "incomplete Shinigami".
but they do attain power and capabilities similar to that of shinigami
with the only different being the missing part of a hollows soul
The seal themselves through breaking the mask, while Shinigami grow their Zanpaktou spirits to be basically another sentient being.
and hollows are already an amalgamation of hundreds upon thousands of souls
So i'm guessing Yhwach made those Quincy Arrancars like Ivan by putting his soul in regular hollows?
Yeah Tsukishima was pretty cool. His ability was also pretty ridiculous.
