Any spoilers yet?
Ignoring the fact that theyre always bullshit
I've got a spoiler for you:
Rukia a cute
KUCHUKI RUKIA IS FINAL VILLAIN
AIZEN KNEW ALL ALONG AND TRIED TO SAVE SS FROM HER EVIL
AIZEN IS THE HERO WE DESERVE
I hope for more badass Rukia in this chapter.
Also it must have been enough time for Ichigo to arrive by now.
Aizen was right!
just postin some rukia
>new rukia best rukia
Anyone think we'll get a pre-Renji gang, Rukia flashback during this fight? It would be interesting to know how the fuck she survived AS A BABY in that rough pat of rukongai. Someone must have taken her in.
It showed she was a leader and resourceful before being taken in by buyakua.
Whatever it is, it will NOT be Rukia revealing she has achieved Bankai.
Damn you, Kubo.
Is Rukia the only reason people follow Bleach?
And if so, then why put up with her being treated to shittily?
>AS A BABY
derp dude, derp.
>Is Rukia the only reason people follow Bleach?
No. Personally I don't really care about Rukia that much. Of course there are still waifufags that do.
>And if so, then why put up with her being treated to shittily?
I don't see how she has been treated shitty besides her fight in the Fullbring arc that was pretty bad. She has been treated pretty well in this arc in this current arc though in my opinion.
Old Rukia best Rukia.
Bleach is part of late childhood.
I'll never drop it, no matter how bad it gets.
That said, the current arc isn't bad by any means.
Mid-SS arc after the Grimmjow fight leading up to Deicide? Now that was bad, but still not as bad as most people say.
>Bleach is part of my late childhood.*
I hope Rukia doesn't curbstomp As Nodt. He's a cool character and deserves a close fight.
> Mid-SS arc
Don't you mean Mexico?
Yeah, I did.
>Mid-SS arc after the Grimmjow fight leading up to Deicide? Now that was bad
The Ulquiorra fight wasn't bad also TBTP arc was around that time. I just didn't like the pacing in that arc and there were too many pointless fights (some were alright though). That said I enjoyed the second half of the FKT arc where Aizen was fighting the shinigami. The beginning of the FKT battles was probably was the worst part of Bleach, but it wasn't that bad.
I cannot fucking wait for more Cocky-Rukia. MY DICK.
Betcha going to be surprised when Urahara is NOT a badguy.
As Nodt will shit his pants.
are there ANY alphas in here?
/a/ is full of /a/lphas
Ain't nothing wrong with that.
still no spoilers?
It usually doesn't come out until really late on Tuesday, or early Wednesday, if at all.
I just hope AS Nodt wont get the SuperStar treatment and be completely fodderized. Hes a very worthy opponent and should not fall to a bullshit powerup.
Pretty much this, I started reading bleach when I was 12. There's not much to it, really. I don't even enjoy it in the same way I did earlier. I'm also turning 20 in a few months.
i thought that was a female ishida for a moment...
Since you people ruined the One piece thread I'll ruin your thread too
Who is the best shinigami XDD?
oh that's right I don't know any shinigami because I don't read such stupi dmanga
dubs and Kenpachi shows up this chapter
Why do people care about Kenpachi so much? He's going to show up again, but now isn't the time for that to happen.
probably because we finally got some character out of him that wasnt "i love fighting THIS MUCH", coupled with the fact he has a sword name now, and given that kenpachi never really did anything other than hit stuff with his sword before, it'd be interesting to see what broken shit kubo dreams up to match his implied now-ridiculous power levels.
Because his power level will be revealed. Well Kubo already said it was close to the novel so I expect the biggest power up of the history of Bleach
more so than finalform ichigo when he oneshot hollow aizen? jesus
>Well Kubo already said it was close to the nove
do you still have a site thingy with all the pictures?
thank you sir
Fun fact only three characters have a shaped reiatsu : Ichigo (hollow mask), yachiru (cat) and Kenpacho (skull)
I think that's a clue for the power levels. Kubo is too smart for doing that without purpose
Fun fact only three characters have a dual zanpakuto.
I think that's a clue for the power levels. Kubo is too smart for doing that without purpose
Don't start it again.
Only Shunsui has a dual zanpakuto. dummy
So does Ichigo
but that's fucking wrong
really well made website, thanks
>he thinks that's a dual zanpakuto
That's a two blades single zanpakuto. It's different
That's the thing though:
1) Dual weapon (strict):
Ichigo, Shunsui, Ukitake, Hisagi
2) Dual weapon (lax):
Ichigo, Shunsui, Ukitake, Hisagi, Kensei, Ikkaku
3) Dual swords (precisely swords):
Ichigo, Shunsui, Ukitake
4) Two-sword sealed Zanpaktou:
5) Twin-spirit Zanpaktou (canonicity debatable):
Ichigo (Zangetsu and OMZ), Shunsui, Ukitake, Renji
Which definition you want to stick to?
It is actually a mix of those that Need to apply.
I think the only pure one os Shunsui because he's the only one with two sealed swords. The other are bastards
The current situation is something like this:
>around 10 ritters
>Rukia and Renji
>powered up Kenpachi
>a handful of captains and vice-captains
>all the vizards in Karakura
>Urahara, Tessai and Yoruichi
>Isshin and Ryuuken
>our lord and savior(still imprisoned)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there an interview around the time this arc begun where Kubo said something along the lines of "the new enemy will be a small group at first but will grow in numbers later"? Right now the situation is clearly against the Wandenreich so they're going to need a serious upgrade to remain a threat. It's also obvious from a narrative viewpoint that Kubo's going to need enemies for all the good guys to fight, unless they're all going to lose against Yhwach in a massive 1 vs 20 jobfest that would make Aizen jealous.
I just hope Rukia's fight will be over quickly and that Renji deals with Nanana swiftly as well since there's no point to these 1-sided curbstomps. I want to see Shunsui or Ukitake fight, though I'll gladly take plot twists over that.
>"the new enemy will be a small group at first but will grow in numbers later"
Just wait until Ukitake and Urahara reveal that they were bad guys since the beginning. It's pretty much confirmed for all the 4th level readers
My point is that after shitload of posts, hours of discussion I believe those definitions to be only sensible approaches.
Other are, generally, sorta-kinda-if-you-strech-it fine.
Yamamoto's words make 100% sense only if he meant precisely that those were the only pairs of swords when released. That'd check out. Making it less precise brings up examples to the contrary,
Well, I assumed he meant that we would assume Quincies were but a few and then BAM VANDERREICH. But who knows?
Do you really think Kubo forgot?
Oh! The Rukia panel is there!
The displeased Riruka and Orihime made me chuckle.
The fuck are those?
Aizen secret plan. They're coming to liberate him.
They're going to wake up his secret plan.
No broken renjii/James is disgusting panel?
People were for, people were against. Ultimately - nobody decided to even propose an update, let alone make one.
Vox populi, vox dei.
I love what you did with the Rukia one.
Ever since the anime finished, I sometimes have a weird tendency to listen to the OST while reading. It's kinda cool, especially if a character does that show-up-outta-nowhere thing and backs up another guy in a fight.
Really fits well with this theme when shit gets real.
Sad to say, I watched the anime before I read the manga, so I'm used to and love all the OST. Every Wednesday before I read a chapter I'll get some OST playing for the occasion.
They are unnamed arrancar from Ch198. Can you even read?
This is exactly where I left off. I the current bullshit worth picking it up again?
I've been listening to this song every week ever since the initial invasion. I've you've played any of the games you know how well the song suits the situation.
it still hurts
I still want to see who was with Chad in Hueco Mundo.
I still want official confirmation on who was Sword. I'm pretty sure it's been 2 years.
I don't even like shipping shit but they're really cute together.
Their dynamic is why I've kept up with the series. Their parts are enjoyable.
Tfw your waifu will never rescue you
>tfw she will never go on a date with me
Everytime Rukia makes one of her dynamic reappearances and spurs Ichigo on out of his depression always makes me smile
Rukia wearing Zangetsu.
Holy fuck that is great.
That's why I screencapped it. This filler is pretty good. I tend to avoid filler like the plague
What episode is this from?
Rub my back anon
I think it is 318
I watched the Bount arc because I was fool and I was unaware it was filler, and after the Anime was canceled I watched the Reigai arc because I was desperate for something and It wasn't bad at all, I kinda liked it. I need a Gif of the scene where Ichigo goes Bankai and grabs Rukia and the both of them burst out of the precipice world.
Shit I have it just not on my phone
Don't have it.
Take this in exchange.
>implying Rukia would let some filthy shitstain like you touch her instead of Ichigo
But bitches love my cheesy fingers
I really ought to send myself to bed now anyway, it's 2:40AM and I have college later.
I'll see you all later today, I look forward to the thread we'll have once the chapter is out. [spoiler fuck I can't wait for more Rukia [/spoiler:lit]
yfw no rukia next chapter
Rukia's set up for having one of the biggest backstory tweests so far, what with her and Renji's clones helping out in Urahara's shop, why she was chosen to be the vessel of the Hogyoku and go to Kurakara as part of Ichigo Keikaku, and now that she's been chosen to go up to super heaven and become a super spirit and looks a lot like young Bach and Hanatarou. That there's a gap in her backstory may just be the biggest setup to jamming something crazy in there.
I want to know what happened to him.
Could he have been Maggot Nest'd?
Are you ready for Rukia jobbing for hyping As Nodt (as in being insaner than a RG trainee)
Unohana raped him then murdered him.
Nah. Rukia will beat As Nodt, sense Renji, then go to find him having jobbed to this guy. Rukia will fight him and seem to have the upper hand, until he "observes" her enough and she gets wrecked. Then Byakuya will show up out of nowhere and save them because Kubo.
Why is Rukia so perfect?
Girls with purple eyes are godly google it they don't grow any body hair
>Could he have been Maggot Nest'd?
You don't think...?
I-I... uh... o-okay
God damn it Anon
update it in the site please!
the one in te left looks like Ichigo's full hollow mask with severed horns...
The remainder of Bleach's manga is picked up for a 26 episode, high budget "final act" series. In addition to Pierrot's best, many studios come in to help out with the animation. Pacing is brisk and well done.
The catch: It premieres in America with an English dub a month before Japan.
Would you be excited about this?
Come over here so I can patch you up
No, I prefer Rukia's nip VA, that and the Nip VA's have much more believable emotion in their voices.
Holy shit, where was this from?
I agree, though I think the bigger issue with the Bleach dub is that the actors are bored out of their minds.
ADR directors make a big difference, too.
Yes, because I can just avoid the English dub and watch the nip version later.
I thought it looked like Ginjou but wasn't sure.
I gotta rewatch those last episodes.
Yes. I'm not a dub-hating faggot.
when does the best girl return?
这话主要是露琪亚跟罗罗布打，露琪亚好像说要使出真正的袖白雪。 使使用者的身体温度下降到0度以下，然后使出了-18度，-50度几招，最后在绝对零度活动界限是4秒 罗罗布被冻住 本话完
Rukia freezes stuff until they're frozen.
absolute zero, a nod to kurumada?
But As xirself said you can't freeze Fear. That's, like, base level reading.
Chapter is mainly Rukia fighting Aes. Rukia says she'll use the real Sode no Shirayuki. The user's body temperature drops to less than 0 degrees, and Rukia uses techniques which drop to -18, and then -50, and finally to absolute zero.
There's something about an activity boundary limit of 4 seconds, but I can't quite translate it properly.
So Rukia's Bankai confirmed to be -15 million Kelvin?
What's wrong? Yamamoto was burning at 15 million Kelvin. A quick Google search tells me that the Sun really does burn at that temperature.
>not knowing about lower limits to temperature
Kelvin is always a positive value.
Kelvin is by definition positive. Absolute zero is 0 kelvins, and any temperature below that is impossible except in the sense or some mathematical shenanigans. All kinetic energy is absent at absolute zero; a temperature below that is nonsense
-15 million Celsius then. Rukia freezes like a sun made of ice.
Still below absolute zero. Try 0k and leave it at that
The most beautiful zanpakuto becomes the strongest ice zanpakuto.
True shikai? How does this work anyway?Absolute zero. Wow Sode no Shirayuki just become more hax than hyourinmaru. I am surprised that Kubo didn't give this ability to hitsugaya. Hitsugaya sure got trolled and now looks like rukia has surpassed him as the most powerful ice type zanpaktou user.
True shikai? How in the world does this work?Absolute zero. Wow Sode no Shirayuki just become more hax than hyourinmaru. I am surprised that Kubo didn't give this ability to hitsugaya. Hitsugaya sure got trolled and now looks like rukia has surpassed him as the most powerful ice type zanpaktou user.
Sure is a surprise. I never expect kubo to troll him in this kind of manner.
If Ichigo ever managed to seal his sword, perhaps he'd have two as well.
This seems a bit ridiculous and overpowered for a shikai even for bleach standards
Someone go ask kubo on his twitter or whatever.
I'm going to wait and see how this "true sword" thing works out.
Could just be a boast about the true power of SnS, and then she uses the 4th dance.
I thought we'd get a kind of training arc where Ichigo was the trainer. Now I don't really know what the point of those guys was.
Oh well I am proud that rukia has become so strong.
Well, Hitsu was never considered as a war potential, so he never got the Royal Guard upgrade.
Let's just put it this way: the only reason why Rukia and the others gained an advantage was only because she got the RG edge over conventional zanpakutou.
Rukia pre-death identity confirmed
But it was mention in the series several times that he is a prodigy even shunsui mention that he will surpass him in about a 100 years. So much for the prodigy.
Shunsui just guessed it I think. Too bad Hitsugay is a shitty character.
And such is that, in 100 years or so, he will surpass those oldies.
Let's hope Kubo is clearing the way for killing him off.
It won't happen.
Is THE HEART Kubo's actual tumblr account?
You posted the wrong picture.
>in 100 years
It also means that Hitsu should continue pushing hard. From what we see, he and his Zanpakutou changed little from the start, compared to those who showed greater potential in a shorter time than Shunsui's 100 years.
I know. Doesn't stop me hoping.
QUESTION: Kubo Sensei, what is bleach about
Kubo: Everyone dies, but not really
Bleach is how about we go from that to a world where every fucking thing dies for good.
The whole fucking world is covered in Quincy sauce, so everyone will die, and their souls will go to Bach (no hollows, no SS, no nothing), who is in either in a eternal slumber or a perpetual fight with Ichigo.
Nate the Ninja's out.
Only a matter of time for Rukia finally being important again.
Is Tarugo kill?
QUESTION: Kubo Sensei, what is bleach about
Kubo: People think that they are behind their opponents, but actually their opponents are behind them
QUESTION: Kubo Sensei, what is bleach about
Kubo: since when did you assume it was about anything
QUESTION where is grimmjow?
QUESTION: Kubo Sensei, what is bleach about
Kubo: What's a bleach
Can somebody post the German bleach detergent with the quincy cross on it ?
>What's a bleach
It better be this, that's all I gotta say.
It would have to be a little more intricate than that IMO.
celsius doesn't go past -273.15
more like her bankai just instantly turns a massive area to absolute zero, and one attack shatters everything.
>One Piece before Bleach
but wanshit is piss
that doesnt change that it just came out and bleach wont be out for another couple hours because of that.
Bleach needs to end, it's like one piece in that its become purely a cash grab and has lived beyond the normal life of an anime.
its been this way for a very long time
yep, but they gotta pay the bills i guess. sucks but nothing to be done about it
Well, this is the "last arc." Granted from the looks of things Kubo intends to drag it on for at least another 5 years, minimum.
no, sakura cpr, mouth-to-mouth
>drag it on
What's being "dragged" about this? Anything faster would be the definition of "rushing it". Let people savor it while its still here. Not even sure what the goal of the haters are. If you think the anime community will randomly change to the better if a shonen manga ends you are in for a disappoitment.
Simmer down, Jesus Christ. I like Bleach, and I'm not saying it'll end. I'm saying Kubo's arc length is really long compared to most other manga, and so just because it's the "last arc" doesn't mean it's ending any time soon.
5 years is "soon" in Kubo years.
I can't wait for the time when she will stop Juha Bach.
it was soul king in disguise, testing ichigo
I would agree with you if not for the fact that there are still bankais to be revealed. Also the worldbuilding that happens whenever there are 50 chapters concurrent of fightan are pretty interesting as well as the rare Ichigo/Zangetsu character interactions.
Has it been 9 weeks?
where da spoilers at
where da chapter
Good job anon. That wasn't a bad try.
>Rukia is fighting Äs Nödt
>She says she'll use the real Sode no Shirayuki
>It drops a body's temperature to less than 0 degrees and then she uses techniques that can drop it to -18 or -50 then a final one that drops it to absolute 0.
>To get to absolute zero it takes 4 seconds, then they are frozen completely
At this pace Niggastream will release the Bleach chapter before Waterpanda, again.
What are you doing to me Panda
Great, so As Nödt has a 4 seconds timeframe to counter her because Rukia just told him all about it.
Does anyone have the Haschwald cutting Cang Du edits that start with "Cut me if you're - Mangapanda"?
>When did you come under the impression that ice cannot feel fear? Fear of being shattered, of melting, of being slowly chipped away!?
isn't Bleach on break this week?
>Renji vaporizes his opponents with heat
>Rukia freezes them
It's over guys, the Renji/Rukia shippers have won.
>the TRUE sode no shirayuki
I told you about better ice zampakutou than hyorinmaru, I told you dogs. why can't you believe until it's too late.
Call me when rukia pierce Renji's torso to make his earth move manually while she get's into a 100% artificialy breathing with a mouth to mouth for about an hour
wait, so if Ichigo's moveset is all darkness and shadow, that means his mate will be light based?
Considering I don't think you could re-interpret Orihime's "shield" powers into "light" powers, who would that be?
>reading Naruto because why the fuck not
>Sakura cuts Naruto open and holds his heart
For fucking real?
>make his earth move
I think you mean heart
and piss off about naruto, you have 3 threads for that.
All this waiting has made me consider the possibility that Mangapanda starts with a blank page, adds the watermarks and then works on cleaning the chapter and translating around them rather than doing it the normal way. It would also explain why their watermarks are the only part of their releases that manage to remain somewhat consistent.
Manual heart massage is an actual thing you know, look it up.
Kubo what are you doing?
This nigga is some horror movie shit.
Huh. Now that you mention it, I can see it being a thing, but it just feels so out of place in fucking Naruto.
My fucking dick.
He saw Frozen
Also, Rukia pulls a byakuya
wow, her coolness just went up 10 points...
or should I say, it went down 10 degrees
Looks like this is the end for As nodt. Finally that guy get to know the feeling of fear himself.
aw lawd those fucking As Nodt faces
what's interesting is that if As can't pull through, Rukia will basically have beaten him at his weakest, presuming he has volstandig
As devastated Byakuya's ass and now he's all fucked up by Rukia, screw this
>If I freeze myself, then I die
>If I die, I can't be afraid
>Therefore, your fear power doesn't work on me.
Who the fuck draws this shit
>I can momentarily kill my body
Aren't all soul reapers dead anyway?
This power up, doesn't make too much sense.
his eyes never stay put
I'm fucking out of this shit
Rukia is fucking broken and this is only her Shikai.
Royal guard reishi training sure is super effective.
>I am already dead
Actually the fear power doesn't work because it freezes before entering her body and infecting her.
Still a dumb power up.
with her body like this, if she gets cut, she won't bleed
As Nodt hasn't used vollstandig yet, right? So the fight isn't over.
Whats up with the random Byakuya?
What a retarded power and Kubo's explanation of it is even more retarded.
Remember how last week there was a heated argument that lasted for over 5 hours and 400+ posts about how Rukia was unable to feel fear due to her past experiences?
Who knows that sode no shirayuki can have a hax ability like this that can even block fear from entering a person body.
She's pulled that shit a couple times before, just never so perfectly
So its a bit like the quincy puppet thing?
She freezes herself to prevent injuries and the like, and controls her now immovable body with her reishi?
no, I mean, there were a couple panels when I think I saw Byakuya
Bleach fanboys always go overboard with the speculah.
I remember entire essays written about aztec mythology and how it relates to Ichigo and Rukia.
Yes. Yes, I do.
I still have no fucking clue what Kubo was saying here, but goddamn the old Rukia is back.
Yeah it is over. His body is frozen and looks like he is crumbling. He doesn't even have the time to go vollstandig
which is quite likely due to the sheer power that she previously didn't have.
the only good thing about this stupid chapter
It's not blocking fear, more like blocking a serum or poison that induces fear.
His left arm is practically hanging by a thread, and he's completely frozen atm, so yeah.
Well, she has a scarf now and is cool
He's doing things right to me.
"Ice zombie" Rukia is hella good power to be honest. I like it. I just wish her whole clothes freezed and broke like her mask. Would make more sense.
she's basically slowing down her body's natural vitals so she can beat as before fear kicks in
>literally her bankai is yamamoto levels of bullshit in his bankai
>implying her bankai couldn't simply control all tempruture everywhere forever while being completely fuck indestructible.
Yeah sure is anticlimactic. Even mask put up more of a fight than this. Rukia sure has the potential to be even better than hitsugaya.
Wouldn't her frozen dead body crack if she moves it with her reishi?
I mean the frozen body would be stiff and joints wouldn't be able to move and so on...
As if any of it makes sense.
Well I guess that isn't too much of an asspull, but still, kind of makes you wonder what the hell her bankai will be.
My god, Can Kubo even into Physics?
So basically Level 5 Uiharu?
So apparently Rukia's power turns her into a yuki onna.
So she'll start crying and fearing for hours after the fight? It's quite a short sighted power up. I imagine Mayuri would just lol and temporize then laugh again As Nodt was just dumb. Even though he might have a round 2 incoming since he didn't angel mode.
>"Ice zombie" Rukia is hella good power to be honest.
She needs to connect to use her power and she needs to do it in 4 seconds.
Most high tier fighters would make short work of her using remote attacks.
Of course this fear opponent just stands there like a tard waiting to be cut down.
Yeah the training in the royal palace sure help out. I don't think rukia is capable of controlling her own reishi in this manner without the training.
YO LAB M
please update your site! I can't see the lastest Reaction Guide.
also make an image using >>101557500 or Rukia's cover!!
Man, I don't fucking know.
Didn't everyone and their mother predict something like that years ago?
essentially thats what i think she will be able to do and it fits all the crap she can do with her shikai.
Well, isn't sode no shirayuki a yuki onna?
What good is physics if it can't be kuboed?
Maybe shes just exaggerating and the power is only an ice shield of absolute zero, sort of like gaara's sand shield thats always on him.
what? No, she killed as, so his fear thing won't work anymore
if she hadn't killed him, she'd be dead, and the fear thing wouldn't need to work
So he's completely useless without his power? Or did her freezing herself somehow power herself up? I don't know what fucking happened.
Don't try to apply logic to it, just don't. You're better than that.
>ghost samourai that step on air and travel through dimension to fight angel nazi and dias de las muerto costumed freak : OK
>ice not working like real world despite being one of the element the less realistically used in every story ever : THIS IS AN OUTRAGE
yeah, fuck you too.
I figured the punch line was going to be "Since when did you think shinigami were alive?"
As Nodt is like the only cool Sternritter. I have come to this conclusion because he is the only one whose name I bothered to remember. His speech was interesting too, I guess.
thats probably why there is a time limit
>Of course this fear opponent just stands there like a tard waiting to be cut down.
but that's how he's ALWAYS fought
mask even commented about how he tried to tank senbonzakura
Her sword looks awfully short here.
so did you read the first part of JoJo's bizarre adventure?
if so you remember Dio's original powers right?
its essentially that, but she can apply it to her sword.
Physic? In MY Bleach?
I enjoyed the chapter, even if I still hope for Nodt to make it
Alright /a/, what the fuck is Äs Nödt thinking/saying?
I can't wait for the bankai in a white kimono. the power will probably just to put an area to absolute 0 instead of jsut herself, though, but while dancing and attaking. And maybe having some ice clones and illusion in the process, since the yuki onna is a measleading creature
technically, renji's only got one spirit. it starts off as the monkey snake chimera, but even after its transformed there's still a chain connecting the snake and moneky together
4 seconds is more than enough.
Bleach is worse than naruto with ass pull yet /a/ is so fedora over hating naruto it's unbelievable
The only discrepancy I found was that whole being able to move while at absolute zero thing.
Which is false, because at absolute zero nothing moves.
Even though absolute zero isn't 'absolute' per see, I heard they managed to lower the temperature by an additional 0.25 degrees during a test.
Yeah, but this is bordering on clad-levels of bullshit and at Shikai to boot, Rukia's power completely shits on Hyorinmaru.
She's a yuki onna, an icy ghoul that leads men lost in the mountains to their deaths.
A brilliant way to incorporate 'death' with 'ice'.
She's not used to that power yet, so at full force the 4second limit is likely to stretch into minutes if not completely disapear.
Also in Bleach nobody ever avoid attacks, She's 'as broken as Kira was, The different is that Kira was smart enough to explain his power AFTER people were dead or completely locked by it.
"You will fear the egg chain of death!*derp*"
Sure is a bit too overpowered for a shikai ability. This will be better as a bankai ability.
Yamamoto's body should disintegrate into nothingness after just a picosecond of using his Bankai. It doesn't affect either of them immediately, as they acknowledge that using their powers for extended periods of time will kill them, but it is their power so they can't just die from using them.
>don't be afraid of the eggs
Kubo totally fucked Hitsugaya in 1 chapter
There's no redeeming factor to him now, Rukia has the best Ice Zanpakuto
Let it go
Let it go
>Kubo does it again
Yeah sure is disappointing that he is defeated so quickly. I figure he will have some other attacking abilities besides fear.
All this not being able to move talk makes me wonder, why doesn't anyone complain about how hyourinmaru moves like a damn snake while being completely made of ice and not cracking.
>forgetting the fact that ice shota can fucking fly
>forgetting that rukias ability is limited in time by ALOT
it's just angle
at any rate, katanas are around 2 forearm lengths long, so for someone rukia's size, that's not that big.
Pretty good, anon. Have you ever considered a professional career in funny manga edits?
But Dio was great at boxing. Rukia gets her shit pushed in by everyone and everything and hardly seems to know how to use a sword.
I said it years ago
"the only reason Niyorinmaru is called the stronged Ice zanpaktou... is because nobody was ever strong enough to master Sode no shirayuki".
She will say it word for word when fighting firepunk, followed by "ban...kai"
1. One piece
9. Fairy Tale
This is Bleach he isn't defeated yet.
It's the angle, the blade is pointing diagonally upwards and towards the viewer.
Back to your dub threads with you.
>because nobody was
you act like Sode No Shirayuki is passed down.
Next Chapter: Who told you that ice can't feel fear?
He can control weather. His and Rukia's Zanpakutos were never similar apart from the ice theme. Rukia can freeze anything that is near her, but Hitsugaya can take all the water and moisture in the atmosphere and use a city worth of ice in any way imaginable.
>Next Chapter: Who told you that ice can't feel fear?
And then for no reason his volstandingpower is literally summer, the ban of snowmen.
Who knows? But he looks defeated to me. Maybe As Nodt will face his own fear making him even stronger.
>bugs are common in summer
>bugs are a common phobia
As far as I understand it, the 'negative' temperature isn't really below absolute zero, but its considered a negative temperature because entropy being reduced while energy increasing, but any sort of energy will flow from the 'negative' system to the positive one.
>tfw got Kubo'd and absolutely loved it.
Rukia is not moving her own body by her own power, she's manipulating it like a puppet using reishi.
That's some pretty damn good reishi manipulation skills she's got, to the point that even among Quincies skill of that level is rare.
I really was expecting more depth for as nodt, if only because he raped her oniisan. But it might not be completely over yet. With 2 Quincy eliminated, it might be time for the Balance to step into action again. Or maybe Zombie-chan. We need more Babiettes and them having a lesbian rape orgy with a temporary weakened Rukia would be fun.
Okay I'm too tired for this shit
Existence invalidated. Proceed to kill yourself.
SUMMER OF CICADAS
its like Evangelion again!
Cue in Shiro Sagizu!
exactly, both are different.
one controls water in its different forms and the other controls temperature
sign of a true bleach fan
anon pls, it was almost perfect
>I'm saying that currently, I'm not alive
Well, yeah. You're a ghost samurai. Great observational skills, Rukia.
>a dead spirit being deader than dead
my head hurts kubo pls
>implying rukia doesn't have Coulrophobia
>implying As nodt Volstanding isn't TATATATATATATADADA CIRCUS TATATATATADADADA AFRO CIRCUS AFRO CIRCUS AFRO POLKA DOT POLKA DOT AFRO
I kinda feel like Kubo is building towards the current quincys being beaten and the SS regrouping and recovering before the next wave.Renji will either tag team with Rose or job to make Rose look good when he kills NaNaNa.
Cold is just the absence of heat.
This fight will be a mirror fight like Renjis only with different people
Rukia thinks she won
She actually didnt
Fear guy gets upper hand
No wait no he didn't
this has been every bleach fight ever in existence Kubo is a hack
ok i literally fell out of my chair laughing and woke my neighbors up
good job asshole.
She's a un-un-undead.
Well luckily there is a drawback and she can only use it for a short period of time.
>People thinking Ass Not is defeated without showing a trump card/Vollstandig first
What manga are you reading? Cause sure as hell it ain't Bleach.
He'll mega-fear himself so much that his fear of death gives him a massive powerup.
Fuck you it's shonen enough to work.
>but any sort of energy will flow from the 'negative' system to the positive one.
I hope you giving and receiving, because if not then you just took one big shit on the second law of thermodynamics which states (crudely) that energy cannot travel from a lower energy system to a higher energy system without being directly influenced by an outward factor.
It's the refrigerator principle, so to say.
We're getting too shonen here. She might have to wear a fashionable scar if we get any more shonen.
Some stern ritter got defeated in the first invasion by kenpachi without showing their Vollstandig. Not to mention Cang Du and BG9
I hope you mean*
The drawback probably comes from the fact that she has to start reheating her body or else she'll freeze or she can only manipulate her body for a short time before she gets tired.
Or a combination of both and that the longer she holds it, the harder it is to manipulate a constqnrtly frozen/freezing body.
>i am currently dead
>body below zero temperature
>ALWAYS the exact counter to the new enemy type
why does kubo keep pulling so much bullshit out of his ass?
why do I keep accepting this shit?
why do I still read this...
>then rukia goes bankai and is proven to literally be ichigo levels of bullshit
actually take that back, se literally is around as bullshit as ichigo was right before he got his sword reforged and now he have no clue in fuck how strong he is.
>in b4 ichigo literally can do everyones power in the series and that was forshadowed by his part everything ever bullshit.
No way NaNaNa lose to people who talk too much about their powers if he's really a guy that literally learn about his opponent. He's gonna be beaten by either a really secretive person (Hisagi, Yumichika), or a joke character, like Oomaeda, Yachiru or even Hanatarou
At least she hasn't gone full logia with reforming her body out of ice.
>ice counters fear
lolno, something like "I am fearless" or bravery/heroism would be the exact counter.
This was Rukia making the most of her powers with the information she had.
Anyone faster than Rukia can just dodge for 4 seconds. As Nodt just likes to sit there and try to tank attacks because he's an idiot.
>She might have to wear a fashionable scar
I read it as scarf and was gonna answer "do you even Kubo".
Well of course we have to power up every supporting character to ichigo levels. How else will we be able to reveal Ichigo's new "I can use all the powers of the shinigami who fell and were my friends because I bleach my soul pure white and I have the power of the sun and I can come back from the dead and I have a 7 and a half inch penis that's pretty big for a japanese guy" powers?
Rose will have learned from his fight with Mask not to explain his power and he will get his rematch from the first invasion.
>ice shota with his LOL ice clone, eat a dick crap.
the 'negative' system is the one with the most energy here, just that the particles are hold in place with some magnetic field/laser or something magic, so to avoid entropy increasing.
by definition the 'negative' system is way hotter than any possible temperature of the system without the wizardry, I still don't quite understand whats really negative about it.
The rukia cover page is the only good thing about this chapter.
>Still no Ice Scythe bankai
You have exactly ONE chance not to fuck this up Kubo.
He faced worse. That and ice has a tradition of never killing the enemy by merely freezing.
You mean like this?
Cang Du broke out of the ice when the Vollstandigs activated, no reason As Nodt can't do the same.
You will never pour whiped cream and chocolate sauce over Rukia's sweet peach sherbet and scoop it slowly with your tongue, while she gets to taste your own banana split 2balls special with extra cream.
Yes. Just without the treacherous two-faced lying abomination part.
Ice is by far more deadly than most other elements.
Why do you think people have to amputate limbs from frost injuries?
>Shikai : my body goes to absolute zero
>Bankai : EVERYTHING goes to absolute zero
Chocolate would taste terrible on fish.
But rukia ice is even stronger than hitsugaya now.
Her bankai will be detaching the ribbon and creating a dome similar to Tousen's.
In it, people will slowly start to freeze and get slower, while Rukia who's already used to fighting with her body frozen won't. If the opponent can use their own reiatsu to counter the freezing, that stills means they're constantly expelling reiatsu which would tire them out faster.
The fact he became "white" means she got a powerup from that cartoon Ice stasis field logic from before. But still, you are right, if the body wasn't shattered that means he can still have a trump card, if only by doing the exact thing as she does: using hreishi manipulation on his whole body until the temperature is back to normal.
>Implying her bankai isn't a frozen pocket dimension where Rukia gently comforts you as you drift into a permanent slumber
And then the scythe swings down.
>real life implications
Her bankai will cause a small button to appear in the air in front of her labeled "I win." When pressed she babbles some shit about molecules that makes no sense to anyone with a middle school education and the enemy dies in a big splash page.
Nah, in bankai her absolure zero sphere extends so far all her clothes gets pulverized and the ribbon is the only thing that will cover her naughty bits during the whole fight by the power of convenient angles
As Nodt is frozen solid, Cang Du was just encased in ice.
Maybe not even vollstandig is capable of saving him now, if so then she's the most successful shinigami so far in this war.
It's not Hitsugaya that will become the Yamamoto of ice users, it's Rukia.
How are Hitsufags taking this?
I just want As Nodt sudden fear of death to make him auto vollstandig and become some abomination (like Alucard-shit level) that will mindlessly roam around SS killing shinigami very gruesomely until Byakuya finishes it off.
Rukia will have left by then thinking she won, or she'll fall unconscious after this
what if freezing As Nodt, and breaking it, will result in a black essence of pure fear to come out?
>YOU CAN'T FREEZE YOUR BODY BELOW 0 THAT MAKES NO SENSE
>while shooting "fear"-spikes
>and standing in the air
>and fighting a soul reaper with a magic sword
>whose body is made up of magic and stuff
>also all this happens in an afterlife-like magic realm
Quality writing there Kubo
Speaking of which, I'm interested in what will happen after she comes back to life. Regardless of As Nodt being dead or alive by then, will his fear effect resolve and overcome Rukia, leaving her prey to the attack of another enemy? That would mirror Renji's current situation in a way.
Normally Kubo tends to obey the natural laws as the laws of the Bleach universe, except for when he doesn't.
Things to consider.
>She's not actually absolute zero, but a small layer of her skin is. This freezes prevents anything from going in like As Nodts attacks and blood from coming out.
>She uses her reishi to manipulate so that the first layer of her skin doesn't start freezing the rest of her body.
>She calls herself dead because she can no longer bleed, and she's cold like a corpse. The conversation with As about living beings and her being no longer alive was just to fuck with him.
I sadly think it will be a plot device to have her out of action for a while, yeah. And in need of protection.
You're pretty retarded.
Of course, Kubo plays with physics all the time, but:
- special powers are NORMAL in Bleach
- standing in the air is NORMAL in Bleach
- magic etc.
He knew what her power was, he knew how Sode no Shirayuki worked.
It didn't work like that. He's freaked out and confused.
It's just like you talking to person from another era:
- You can't fly in the sky!
- You can't possibly hear other people being that far away!
- You can't make lightning to obey you and power your stuff!
Nope, that's retarded and creates more problem than it solves. She's completely cold there. Her reishi manipulation is just THAT good.
Here's hoping she gets fire fingered from behind by Buzz B.
Since when were you under the impression that she can't just freeze the fire.
I find hard to believe that they don't get a memo about how eampakutou tends to defy logic and shinigamis tends to have secret techniques out of their butt all the time. I mean, they have some "daten" available, a shinigami using someting unusual shouldn't surprise them much. They know it can happen.
As nodt was acting really dumb there. Maybe he was, though. His power might have took his sanity long ago.
She's so cold that her blood and organs are frozen, so she moves her body with just her reishi.
Absolute Zero freezes everything and has a time limit before her body freezes.
more like "when did you start thinking I could create cold without following the laws of thermodynamics? I creaetd cold by storing eat inside my blade all along. And when I'm full, I can finally... ban...kai..." And then Rukia's bankai was fire.
>so she moves her body with just her reishi.
Ishida is rolling in his traitors grave.
Dude, they have people who were observing everybody.
I mean if U really is Undestanding and really need only observe properly to know stuff, Daten should be spot on.
But both Rukia and Renji changed. Urahara introduced foreign element. Komamura did the unspeakable.
As Nodt scolded Mask on not reading Daten properly, too.
She'll be too scared to go bankai, though.
I guess Rukia wouldn't die even if she were already dead.
Where were you when Rukia was kill?
Been a while since I've been Kubo'd with a retarded ability.
>Wouldn't her frozen dead body
I don't get it, aren't shinigamis dead to begin with? You can't die twice, that shit would be redundant.
She froze herself and is moving her body with reishi it's not that hard to understand.
I've been waiting for a chapter this retarded for a while. I still think the most hype/fun general we've had was when Yama died, though. Shit was hilarious.
In a world where most opponents favour close combat she's comletely broken now. As long as she uses reishy she can probably take a sword through her head without dying for 4 minutes.
And it's a shikai. Her bankai will be broken as fuck.
Yeah, I was there. Kubo completely blindsided everyone.
Apology for poor English
When were you when no heat legend dies.
I was sat at home drinking brain fluid when Kubo ring
"Rukio is die"
How long before she freezes Momo?
They are dead from the "living" dimension point of view, other than that, they are "alive" in their own dimension. don't forget, in Bleach life and death is merely about traveling dimensions and
Read the manga.
I beg to differ:
Nono, I understand the reishi aspect.
The 'I'm already dead so I cant feel fear but I'm alive and can move while being absolute zero' part is just...I cant even describe how silly it is.
Peaches attract peaches. I'm surprised we don't have some doujins about it already.
>The fear that handicapped Byakuya was Rukia being dead.
>Rukia is currently "dead" to win the fight her brother lost.
Irony. I love it.
Oh man, I was here for some of these.
Dammit, LM. I was about to go to bed.
>I cant even describe how silly it is.
You never read any fiction ever or something? She's basically Iceman from the Xmen.
Nahh when Zangetsu was Bach was way better.
She's probably dead in that her blood no longer moves, but she just keeps her heart and brain going with reishi. Best I can think up.
She's just saying that to fuck with As.
But she freezes her blood so she can't bleed, and her temperature is now like a corps. So she's now "deader" than she was before. Or gives odd the appearance of someone deqad.
Oh, that's actually really poetic, I like it. It also kind of make sense, Rukia was always ready to sacrifice herself for others, so now she literally dies every time she helps no matter the outcome. It's quite a good analogy.
Why does he wear the mask?
You know their bodies are just apparently ghosts that bleed. And they seem to work on the old -hitpoint- version of anatomy where anything above 1 is nonfatal. Maybe she can just freeze the freaky magic that keeps them going? I don't know, I'm not a ghost doctor.
IF I TAKE THAT MASK OFF
Im not too familiar but isnt Iceman's actual body ice to a molecular level?
Rukia isnt ice, ice is an extension of her soul. She's still, for all intents and purposes, a warm blooded person. She cannot actually function when using the ability aside from the reishi puppet thing. Her neurons would freeze at absolute zero and she wouldnt be able to process the thought of using reishi to move. Its a power that cannot exist.
GINGAVITUS, and terrible breath.
IT WOULD BE EXTREMELY FEARFUL
It's more than her blood, it's her whole body chemistry, hence why she's immune to emotions and pain and everything during the duration of the power up. It works because Bleach has a concept of "soul" going on, so even without brain activity there's still someone to pilot the body.
Yu Yu Hakusho ripoff.
>Her neurons would freeze at absolute zero and she wouldnt be able to process the thought of using reishi to move. Its a power that cannot exist.
It works because Bleach has SOULS, aka little ghost energy that pilot a physical body no matter the physics going on. Freezing the body doesn't negate the soul, and the soul is the part that pilot the frozen body using reishi manipulation. It's really simple.
If it was ice to a molecular level than that means so is his brain. And if his brain is ice he wouldn't be able to process blah blah.
His face is actually so terrifying that he hides it because its his best trump card.
YOU'RE A SMALL GUY
Because Kubo and style.
SHE'S FUCKING RELEVANT AGAIN!
And I'm back to reading this manga after 3 years. Maybe sometime I'll even read everything I've missed so far.
Not in Bleach. The soul control the body. The brain is merely where it resides. don't forget, in SS "atoms" aren't hydrogen and electrons and shit, it's "reishi". It doesn't work like in the living world.
Just read the Facebook arc and catch up from there.
This last arc's been hilariously entertaining. Just stick around for the chapter release generals, at the very least.
>not reading the best arc.
Step up anon this current arc has been great.
>I am become Fear
Will this be animated? I'll watch whatever episodes have Rukia do anything.
Sure, now it is.
>1000 Shit War
>this is what bleachdrinkers actually believe
Jesus Christ Kubo.
It was the most retarded thing ever.
"I'm not alive because I'm freezing my body, I can't know fear." Is he even trying?
What's a better arc, nippleclamps?
Just because you are uneducated doesn't mean people can't enjoy writing more clever than you.
>being so flat you have a bigger cup on your back than on your front.
Her nipples must be incredibly hard right now.
Just how /a/ likes it!
Ok, to explain to those who don't understand
By freezing her body Rukia has stopped her biological processes, which includes the part of her brain that elaborates fear.
Those shoulder blades look a little creepy.
>that elaborates fear
I don't know that I've ever elaborated fear before.
I'm just going to assume you're pretending to be retarded.
Thank you anon, that's just the thought I needed to reach climax.
Bankai has small wings sprouting out of her back, calling it now.
HE'S A PRETTY TALL GUY
If she was dead she wouldn't be able to think.
If she can think while she freeze herself it means she can feel fear. Fear isnn't the only feeling magically blocked by a frozen body...
>Mai waifu in her wedding dress
>I have never seen a woman's back
Wow, her new power is pretty coolxD xD
>Fear isnn't the only feeling magically blocked by a frozen body...
Artificial fear is. Also the soul doesn't require a functional brain to exist. It's the same logic that allow a hollow with a hole in the head to exit. their bodies and personality are loosely conected unlike "living" people's.
But How Can Fear Be Real If Her Body Isn't Real?
Pretty sure it's slightly off. The shoulder bone connect to the arm so the point shouldn't be there. Spiky bones like that is a thing but that one drawing did it in a weird way.
>implying the whole chapter wasn't Rukia worst fear
As Nodt knows, Rukia worst fear is to think she beat her opponent easily while in fact her opponent was only pretending to be weak.
As Nodt gave Rukia confidence to break her even harder after she will realize that she's powerless in front of him.
That whole thing is no different than Komamura's invincibility a few chapters ago. I really don't see the problem. manga-ice isn't real ice, manga-brain isn't real brain. It's not like you were being lied about reading a documentary or something.
WAS BEING COLD A PART OF YOUR PLAN?
thats the problem, he can´t.
I hope Rukia never gets a bankai but simply kicks everyone's asses with her shikai + magic shit and being a badass/clever bitch.
>ghost magic fiction should follow real world physics because my brain is underdeveloped and can't understand the concept of fiction at all.
You know, you're winning nothing at glorifying your stupidity like that.
Can she block "mind games" with her frozen body?
She probably can block Shinji shikai since it uses gas but can't she block Shunsui shikai?
Because he has no mouth and he must scream.
Shunsui's shikai/bankai isn't illusionary. Its literally reality warping. So no, she cannot block it unless the RG powerup is significantly higher and even then that is difficult to say, as Shunsui may have had one himself.
Knowing Kubo it is.
The game probably goes on no matter her mental state. it wuold be tricky against Tousen's bankai, though. Is "soul sense" blocked by it? she's clearly not seeing with her physical eyes at the moment for instance.
All told that's quite possible since Top Tier captains are stronger than weak captains with just Shikai.
But nah I'm seeing her achieving it at a crucial plot moment.
"Ruke, help me take this mask off"
"But you'll die."
"Nothing can stop that now, just for once, let me inspire fear in you...with my own mouth"
How about Kyouka Suigetsu? Her eyes are frozen, so she would never actually see Kyouka Suigetsu being released and her brain would never process the illusion.
Sometimes I scare myself when I go to poop and I push too hard and I go deaf for a few seconds
She already saw it released before. She's already under its effects.
So is rukia's shikai more powerful than the newfold renjis bankai true form?
Hypothetically, I mean.
but her senses are frozen so the effect doesn't work while she's in dead state
>forgetting the fact that ice shota can fucking fly
Wow, I didn't think a person could be this stupid.
Out on Niggastream.
everyone can fly, you dumbass.
>Currently I am not alive
Fucking called it, Rukia is kill.
they can jump and stand on air, that's not "fly"
So rukia is literally a DEATH DEATH GOD NOW!
>they can move through the air and levitate
>that's not "fly"
That was my point, I was calling bullshit on that other guy.
Learn to read before you post next time.
So this is what happens when Kubo watches Frozen.
sode no shirayuki's "real" power? what, did it not tell her its "full" name either?
this. i know its not real physics and shit but god damn this is pushing it.
if that was the case, then everything else would have stopped as well. she'd be dead.
>sode no shirayuki's "real" power? what, did it not tell her its "full" name either?
No she just learned how to use her ability better.
>this. i know its not real physics and shit but god damn this is pushing it.
As Nodt's ability never effected her thus making As Nodt's ability not work.
your blood pressure is too high
Well, formality, but New Thread:
