Bleach 567 Spoilers Summaries

Credits: Baidu (Chinese Scipt)
Trans: Andygoesrawr

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

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.
>>
an entire chapter that makes Hitsugaya look like an idiot compared to Rukia.

Fucking Beautiful.
>>
>>101552815
last week chinese spoilers were fake
>>
>>101553426
No. Last week baidu got the entire raw chapter posted.
>>
>>101553547
but before that for hours there was a fake chinese spoiler which was poorly translated into english by google translate (usually the fakes are by people who try translating it from english into chinese)

something about Juha being offered to join SS and shit.
>>
>>101552901

It already happened a million fucking years ago when she first brought out Sode no Shirayuki. She blew up !Gin in like 5 seconds flat; suddenly Icekid's abilities include near-infinite regenerative capability when before it was just Ice and a cool Dragon.
>>
>>101552815
>absolute zero
sounds like fan fiction
>>
I want Nanana to do something.
>>
We Absolute Zero now?

>>101554844

>rukia literally can control when she is dead or not
>also has gone full saint seiya levels of overpowered
well holy crap.
>>
>>101557258
>Rukia can momentarily kill herself
That's a new level of bullshitting, even for Kubo
And still nothing happened in this chapter, just bla bla bla

This arc will last for at least 8 more years of asspulls and boring fights
>>
So now Rukia can fuck logic in the ass. Welcome to the club I guess?
>>
>>101554993
yup.
>>
>>101557407
>Asspulls and boring fights
You realize what you're reading right?
>>
>>101557407
>boring fights
That's the main problem of this manga. Ichigo has basically one attack he spams in every fight. Compare that to MCs from a good manga.
>>
>>101554993
Thought the same thing at the end of the chapter.

>rubber punch that's fuckhuge
>>
>>101557730
the luffy part in your post is obvious trolling but even rubber punch and rubber kick are still more moves ichigo has ever showed.
also i said GOOD manga
>>
>>101557787
Don't get me wrong One Piece is the shit, but the thing you're arguing is silly. Attacks don't make fights interesting, things like damage, environment, fighting styles etc actually causing fights to evolve and change make them interesting. You know the shit that bleach and naruto for that matter did early on then forgot about after power levels spiked.
>>
>>101557920
>things like damage, environment, fighting styles etc actually causing fights to evolve and change make them interesting
none of that describes an ichigo fight. it's only "look behind you" GETSUGA TENCHO, all that in front of a white background
>>
>>101557984
The first soul society arc had a ton of it, right up until the kenpachi fight. Ichigo having to adapt to different fighting styles and all that. I think that's about the time they stopped actually.
>>
>At absolute zero, the temperature at which all molecular movement stops, I can move

haha fuck you kubo

>>101557532
Saitama has like move.

Half expected her to point out they're in the afterlife, so everyone's dead.
>>
>>101558205

Are those shoulder blades? They are strangely arousing.
>>
OK, three things:

1.) I love that Rukia actually looked competent, for a change. It's been so long that the character has been relevant that this is a welcome change of pace from what we usually get..

2.) I hate that Kubo still stupidly has his characters stop and explain their techniques to their opponents for no other reason to setup said character to get one-shotted by the next person that shows up. Yeah, it's Bleach and characters are fodderized to the point where battles feel wasted, but come the fuck on, man! Just shut the fuck up, beat your opponent and move on. If Kubo's going to do the explanation anyway, just have a third party do so, in thought, without revealing it to their opponent.

3) I've 'read' Bleach long enough to know that the ending of this chapter isn't setup to show that Rukia is looking badass, but that the Quincy Nazi guy is going to transform despite being dead, with Rukia's new technique conveniently being the prerequisite needed for them to do so. So a preemptive "FUCK YOU, KUBO!" is in order for the next chapter when this happens. Instilling fear into As Nodt's is the key to his power up.
>>
>>101558074
>>101558118
>implying she isn't colder than absolute zero
>>
Remember when Soul Society was still treated like an afterlife in Bleach? When shinigami were dead and humans were alive? When dying meant dying in the real world and becoming a spirit?

Now being a spirit is pretty much just treated as being alive, only with superpowers and very long lifespans. You can be double-dead like Rukia and Komamura now, apparently. I mean the story always had the implicit assumption that you could "die" a second time as a spirit but right now it's being taken to bullshit heights with being dead while being already dead but not quite dead-dead becoming a technique.
>>
I thought Bleach was supposed to have ended like 2 years ago. Is Kubo still fucking dragging everything out at a snails pace?
>>
>>101558460
>I've 'read' Bleach long enough to know that the ending of this chapter isn't setup to show that Rukia is looking badass, but that the Quincy Nazi guy is going to transform despite being dead, with Rukia's new technique conveniently being the prerequisite needed for them to do so.

Of course not.

Because that would mean Byakuya couldn't swoop in and save his imouto, Renji and revenge-rape As Nodt with his shikai. Can't go without pleasing them Byakuya fangirls after all.

>>101558500
>You can be double-dead like Rukia and Komamura now, apparently.
Komamura might even be triple dead. Living world dead -> Animal realm dead -> Soul society dead

Anyone think Kubo may have forgotten the initial premise of his own manga...
>>
>>101558591

Spirits of the dead "dying" never made sense to begin with.
>>
PEOPLE DIE WHEN THEY ARE DEAD
>>
>>101558500

I've stopped asking myself about all of that long time ago.

The amount of inconsistencies and plotholes about human death, soul society and whatnot is just ridicolous.
>>
>>101558229
you're right its not like there's a pattern or anyth-

>bad guy whose power is turning things into bombs
>>
>>101558591
That boat already sailed a long time ago.
>>
>>101558500
don't even try to think about it.
Kubo doesn't care for the "plot" anymore
>>
Where do you go when you die in SS?
>>
>i am not alive

Yeah, we know, you are a fucking shinigami. No one in SS is alive not even those quincies. Fuck you, Kubo. Hitsugaya has frozen people before. Hiyori and Yamamoto were cut in half and survived. It takes much more than simply freezing to kill someone in Bleach.

Ass Knot will fuck her up in the next chapter.

Kubo doesn't.

Pacing has been fine in this arc actually. Unless fights are involved then it gets pretty slow.

>>101558775
Arrancar are not just Hollows. They are Shinigami/Hollow hybrids I don't think they go to the SS when they die.

Who would win in a fight, Don Kanonji when he removes his limiters or Aizen?

Arrancar are actually not shinigami hollow hybrids, just hollows. That's why natural arrancar existed before aizen,

You people are all stupid. We knew from the beginning about how the cycle of reincaration goes. Rukia considering herself "living" might be a little weird but we always knew she could die again which would make her reincarnate. People losing everything that makes them who they are and becoming some random baby god knows where is kind of terrifying.
>>
just read and cant WTF enough
>>
>>101558591
Spirits are alive, too.
Death seems just to be a process were souls go back and forth between two states of living.
Only annihilation of the soul is actual "Death".
>>
Rukia must think of herself as alive. She died when she was a baby and so her death is the only concept she has of living.
Hell some characters where born in SS so how can they be considered dead?

Why is As Nodt so big?
>>
>>101557787
Ichigo has a more diverse moveset than Luffy.
Contrary to what you think Ichigo is stacked with different attacks and abilities, though not all them are named.
The Getsuga alone can be broken down into 4 sub groups, then he has Mugetsu and Kenatsu, a dozen different applications of natural armor, stat enhancing fullbring, regen, cero, like 3 different kinds of step techniques and 2 different methods of trans-dimensional travel.
>>
>>101559214
Cause he's a beanstalk.
>>
>>101558366
I mean it's an okay thing to have like 1 move. Seriously Saitama has 4 moves so far.

Table Flip
Punch (counting all different levels of effort as one move)
and Side hope
Headbutt
>>
>>101558775
Well apparently quincy killed hollows are absorbed into Bach and shinigami killed hollows get turned into swords. I mean seriously, has any hollow that got killed made a reappearance in SS at all?
>>
>>101557532
That's kinda the point. He's a simple character with simple moves who is easily understood. His motivations always boil down to "I want to protect my friends." He never thinks for himself, his opinions are never threatening in any way, and half his fights come down to sudden power ups where he discovers a new power thanks to his "eternal willpower" or his "nakama."

He's a machine produced hero for the modern masses.
>>
Maybe SS is like limbo and when you die after achieving great things there you get to got to heaven
>>
>>101559163

I cringe everytime.
>>
>>101559383
>Well apparently quincy killed hollows are absorbed into Bach and shinigami killed hollows get turned into swords.

I thought they use shinigami souls to do that?

>has any hollow that got killed made a reappearance in SS at all?
That bird kid with Chad I think.
>>
>>101559485
There is no heaven.
Only hell.
Bleach edgy.
>>
>>101559485
heaven or soul king's stomach?
>>
>>101560166
Both.
>>
Will As Nodt's fight take longer than Superstar? He's not dead, will probably require Byakuya to come in, and then Renji.
>>
>>101560269
>He's not dead,
>implying not jobbed to showcase Rukia's awesome power
>>
>>101558775
He does, but any hollow from the gillian class and onwards, are formed by several souls, so when they are struck down by zanpakutos, it's ALL those souls that are purified, not just one, so are all those souls that go the rukogai, not the full hollow.
>>
>>101558775
Tier Hallibell was struck down in Fake Karakura town while it was transported to the living world, and she ended up in the Ice Palace that turned out to be in the shadows of Soul Society.
>>
So how will As Nodt counter. Will his own 'Fear' actually empower him?
>>
>>101560497

His fear will allow him to break out of absolute zero?
>>
>>101560497
He will develop and Absolute Fear that scares even the double dead.

But then how does the worlds population increase? do new souls just randomly form or something?
>>
This wasn't that complicated folks. Her body was frozen so the fear poison couldn't interact with it. She manipulated her body using her sword's power.

She shouldn't be able to do anything at absolute zero.
>>
>>101562269
the fb arc explain that everything has a soul, even juice

>>101562269
Probably. I mean what happens if no one dies in SS, but someone is born in the real world?
>>101562283
No shit.
>>
>>101562321

So souls follow the laws of matter then?
>>
>>101552815
Alright, what the hell is up with that image?
>>
>>101562374
Clearly not as zanpakuto abilities violate the law of conservation of energy and matter
>>
>>101562269
Well, there must be a limit to how much biomass our planet can wield (living creatures cant just grow to weigh more than the whole planet) so when human population increases, other populations decrease.

However, the body mass of one human could feed millions of maggots, so human souls could be formed from many souls of rabbits, or just a fragment of a blue whale. This is the only way I can see the "cycle of reincarnation" working without entirely new souls popping out of thin air.
>>
>>101562454
So souls can break apart and combine together? works for me.
>>
>>101562519
Just like Vasto Lordes are made out of many hollows.
>>
>>101562269
When the number of living people surpasses the number of souls in circulation a new one could be created.
>>
>>101558438
Nothing strange about being aroused by what looks like a woman crawling out of the blanket after a night of passion, looking back as if not yet ready to part.
>>
>>101562547
Vasto Lords are made from lots of menos which are made of hundreds of hollows which consume countless people. A single Vasto Lord could be made up of millions of souls.
>>
>>101562624
Yeah, that's many hollows.

>>
>>101563504

Doesn't appear to be, it appears to just be a upgraded version of her Shinkai

>>101563517

Right now? Yes. When he gets his bullshit power up? Probably not.
>>
>>101563504

You can tell because she didn't say bankai, and by how it looks exactly the same as her shikai.
>>
>>101563534
it's a unique case since it was her own power
>>
>>101563517
Sadly she wont, I believe Hitsugaya was confirmed to have the strongest Ice Sword, which is retarded considering how overpowered Rukia is now.
>>
>>101563556
She's not even shown her bankai yet, it will destroy him infinitely.
>>
>>101563525
>>101563556
>>101563564
Damn. I thought she got yet another compression type Bankai.
>>
>>101563589
Hitsugaya is 'said' to have the 'most powerful' ice bankai... but thats completely unrelated as to whether Rukia will destroy him in terms of combat ability or not. His is called powerful because it summons crazy dragons that hit hard. Her bankai is much more likely to be haxxy/skill based rather than power based, and it'll probably blow Hitsugaya out of the park.
>>
>>101563658
Rukia's bankai has to be something beautiful.

She has the most beautiful Zanpaktou in all of SS after all.
>>
>>101563658

Probably.

I mean, all he can do is freeze her. And she evidently can do that to herself and survive.
>>
>>101563658
Hitsu's bankai is the strongest weightlifter in the world. Rukia's bankai is a gun

Kinda like that.
>>

>>101563842
Yeah it'll probably be something like a shirabyoushi. I kinda hope hers is a 'compression' type of whatever someone else called it. One where she just gets a shirabyoushi outfit and kicks ass.
>>
>>101563842

Your guess is as good as anybody's, I suppose, since it's not as though we'll ever see it.

Hmm... I should draw this.

And she does it all while doing an elegant dance.

Make it happen, Kubo.

I just want a good writer to write some canon-destroying fanfiction which recasts the entirety of Bleach with Rukia as the true protagonist.
>>
>>101563771
I dunno, maybe because Kubo doesn't want to have to explain their temperature system just for that battle and no explanation would leave people going "huh, wtf is she saying? What's a <made up shinigami temperature unit>?"

No, the guy Hitsugaya fought. You know the one, the one who's so minor I can't remember anything about him. His power was sharp nails or something.
>>
>>101564270
Yeah, don't remember that, I guess he must have been really minor. Did he really kill it with freezing and not some other way?

Does that count?
>>
>>101564386
>I think? I remember the battle ending with the guy frozen, anyway.

Then the only thing we know for sure is that one really minor character didn't dramatically break out of the ice like every major enemy has done. He probably thawed out after a few days and went home.

>>101564462
Lets call it a 0.5.
>>
>>101558699
Oda had that too.
>>
>>101564462
I feel like the throat stabbing probably had more to do with it. Hell, if anything the freezing probably STOPPED his death by preventing blood loss and let him remain alive for a while longer, though incapacitated.
>>
>>101564490

So I guess I can only name half a guy.

In which case I think Rukia's actually beating him. She got that shark arrancar and the sand guy by freezing them. Or was the sand guy anime-only?

So now that Rukia and Renji have gotten their standard curb-stomp battles that always follow power-ups they're going to fight some worthwhile opponents next. Nanana mentioned he had never observed anyone as long as he did Renji so he's probably got an advantage now and Rukia could match up against Buzz-B or whatever since he already thrashed one ice zanpakuto.

Rukia will go Bankai for Bazz-B.

>>
>>101565482

Take my money, take all of my money.

Rukia not having bankai ever in the story would be a fucking travesty.
>>
>>101565511
Because everyone wants to fuck Rukia.
>>
>>101565511
Because there's nothing feminine about her.

Not necessarily, if she kicks everyone's ass, even bankai-level enemies, through ingenuity then that'd be awesome.
>>
bazz be will overpower her ice with his special 21 fingers techniwue, but then Rukia will just reveal her bankai is reverse thermodynamic, so she will suck all hit heat, and the more flame he produce the colder he gets until he dies, frozen by his own fire power.

If Shinigami are already dead and therefore can't die then how can there be any conflict or tension when lives aren't on the line? All those life threatening wounds really wouldn't do anything? Just because they're a shinigami doesn't mean they can't die, don't be stupid.

What the fuck is the problem every has with this?

Her body is frozen, so her heart and brain and the like stop functioning, which by standard definitions is fatal. However, she is able to use her "soul" or some other weird magic shit to control her body - or if that's still to strange for you, she uses her spirit whatevers to animate herself and imitate the standard functions of life. There's nothing amazingly unbelievable about this.

The failing of this chapter is that it doesn't regulate the effects of extreme cold accurately. Even then, barely any explanation is needed to make it seem fine.
>>
>>101565977
>logic is fine
>bleach
How old are you?
>>
>>101566017
Rukia is legally dead much like people who's hearts stop. I assume she could be "revived" if her temp goes up. She can move because she is manipulating her body using reishi. If she couldn't do that she wouldn't be able to use her new power.

its not even worth completing that thought

>>101565957
Ceros and Hollow armor. Please.

>>101566017
The problem with this is that she is a soul. She doesn' thave a soul in her soul.
>>
>>101565977
She's claiming to be unable to fear because she's somehow technically dead as a result of the cold, yet her brain activity is evidently 100% fine which is what enables fear. Fear does not disappear from a functioning brain because the attached body is frozen.
>>
>>101566068
Her soul is in her Reishi body
>>
>>101565838
shinigami and objects in the spirit world are based on material with properties analogous to living realm material. things can have energy, be hot, be cold, have locations in space and time.

why is this not intuitive fromeverything you have read so far ?
>>
>>101566079
She's saying she can't fear death because she's technically dead.
>>
>>101566068
We've been through the basics in nonsensical Shinigami biology before. It's not unthinkable there's a bit in her body that is used to manipulate reishi, and that part of her body isn't stopped by being frozen.
>>
>>101566127
Seriously though, why does kubo bother with using real concepts in a world with a completely different phyiscs?

ALRIGHT LISTEN FAGS. RUKIA IS NOT REALLY DEAD.
She is SUPPOSED to be dead because of her body reaching temperatures below zero, but isn't because she learned how to manipulate reishi in way where she is able to function in this state.

Also read mangastreams translation it's much better.

>>101566079
her being technically dead means her brain functions are stopped hence she can't feel fear

How can you not see a problem with this?
>>
>>101566231
>Or human beings?
I haven't seen humans in bleach for quite a long time.
>>
>>101566079
she's using metaphors. the normal functions of her spirit body have stopped. she's technically dead. she's using the word dead to describe her state. she's frozen and the molecules of her body have stopped normal routines. the fear power cannot circulate. the fear power only works under normal conditions of life. she's able to function because she can manipulate her body with reishi. do you get it now ?
>>
>>101566375
Fear probably isn't meant as a physical reaction, but as a conceptual attack.

The person fears death, but as they are already dead, are immune to concept of fear of death.

It doesn't make any biological sense, sure, but did you seriously fucking expect it to?
>>
>>101566357
NO STOP SAYING THIS SHE CAN'T FEEL FEAR BECAUSE AS NODTS POWER NEVER REACHED HER. Holy shit what's so hard about this chapter that people don't understand?
>>
>>101566375
its not that her brain doesn't function, it's that her body is not in a traditional living state, which is a prerequisite to the fear power spreading effectively. you can clearly see that it never circulated past the surface of her skin.... because her body is in a state which can be referee to as dead, inert, non-circulating, inactive by normal means, etc. fuck.

>FEAR DOESNT WORK BECAUSE IM ALREADY DEAD HURRDURR
That's some Naruto shit. Dropped this shit like a rock.
>>
>>101566471
I get where you're coming from, but it seems ridiculous to suggest that the fear needs to infect her physical body while her consciousness is entirely separate from her physical brain and body. You just can't reconcile these two things.

Guys, you know... for fear you need that brain part called Amygdala.
First, other parts of a brain activate "fear" state in the Amygdala. Then, this thing will send a messenger substance through the rest of the brain and the body. If Rukia manages to move her body without using her bloodstream, she can shut down her fear. Yes, it would damage her brain. Yes, deep freezing alone wouldn't prevent that.

This is where shounen logic needs to step in and cover it with "lol shinigami brains tolerate more oxygen shortage if trained properly". i think this should be what rukia refers to.

It's still bullshit because she freezes everything around the rest of her body. Kubo might say she blocked it with specialized reiatsu.

There, explained everything for you.
>>
>>101567415
*Moves body for short time with Reishi like Ishida's puppet thing
>>
>>101567479
It still needs a way to block out the cold or she'd freeze herself solid. that's what I'm talking about.
>>
>People trying to read super far into it
>Mfw it's literally just LOL IM DEAD and his powers don't work
>>
>>101567588
I'm almost certain that Kubo didn't think about it anywhere near as much as the people defending it.
>>
>>101567547
she does freeze herself solid. she can only move for 4 seconds. I imagine she's freezing things she attacking more than she's freezing herself.
>>
>>101562307

Why are you using real world logic about a manga where people levitate in the fucking air?

God you people are retarded.
>>
>>101567547
I assume she'll use her power to reverse the freeze and then realise she's fucked when As Nodt goes Vollstandig and she cant reuse it. Then she whips out her trusty bankai or Byakuya steps in and saves her.

t..this changes everything.
>>
>>101567415
None of this happened As Nodt's fear didn't work because it barley touched Ruika. Her molecules are suspended so the fear has nowhere to go at all and is stuck on the surface of her hand basically.

>>101567588
Yes it's pretty simple, but you're wrong on how it works.
>>
>>101567748
except he didn't bring real world science into it. he used concepts which have analogies within the spirit world. not everything has to work as traditionally as it doesn't in reality. something is wrong with your ability to abstract concepts and that is why you cannot accept shit like ghost people have ghost physics.

Rukia is still no using her bankai,and she probably will not and thus she in the end will defeat a enemy quincy only with shikai.Thats some bullshit right there.Renji needed his new bankai form with all the training gathered to defeat his opponent and the weakest rukia compared to him will defeat her enemy without using it.

Jesus fucking christ, kubodrones.

She specifically says that MOLECULES IN HER SOUL BODY OR WHATEVER THE FUCK IT IS ARE ALL FROZEN, SO THE FEAR DOES NOT AFFECT HER.

How come she can even move or think? The reiatsu training is such a blatant bullshit, it's basically the "it just works, lol" explanation shoved down your throats.
>>
>>101569154
>>101569229
for one, we don't know how the reishi technique benefits rukia. two, below 0 is freezing for most substances. rukia is not made of most substances. three, she does freeze. she states that she cannot move herself after she gets cold enough.

that is exactly how temperature measuremnt is in CELSIUS and thus she said she is frozen when she is below 0 degrees and so they do mesure it in celsius.
if you have some trouble beliveing water freezes in 0 degrees i sugest checking google.

also there are the chemical measurment of temperature which is Kelvin and its sysmtem starts with absolute zero which is −273.15°C,
or 0 K.

Hate to break it to you but after all im even e chemical engineer so i know what im talking about

Using weird soul magic, Rukia can move her dead body which is frozen solid.
That is the literal premise we're given.
>>
>>101569434
the molecules of her body do not have normal properties. maybe she's controlling her reishi to freeze only the parts of her body she needs to. maybe she unfreezes sections temporarily for movement. maybe she entangles her body with the reishi, enabling travel while the molecules are still motionless. we don't know, because we don't know what she is doing or how the GHOST physics works. let that sink in for a minute

>How the fuck do you stay on a tree branch after cutting it down?
You use soul magic to keep it attached.

She's dead as in her body isn't functioning as an alive one - near as we can tell. We don't understand the details of how the soul works, it being able to function without the spirit body or whatever working properly doesn't violate anything we've been told prior.

show me your source that she did die and isn't alive as a spirit and that will prove that she wasn't using the word for descriptive purposes. show me the panel that rukia the main character died and is no longer a spirit being.

Well given that she explained how the whole thing is a metaphor, I'm not sure what to say.

>Therefore his power works on everything that's a live
>It doesn't work on rukia because of her ice powers
>Ice powers means she doesn't have fear
>Ice powers means she isn't alive.

It's a metaphor because her ice powers prevent the effect of the fear powers from happening, she freezes her blood so she can't bleed and metaphorically, absolute zero is a universal concept of death.

This is characteristic is shown from their speed of movement that is the only time when they acutally "exist" in some way (thats far not thr right word to use) and thus the speen of rotation of the molecuals are different so the characteristics are different.Thats all to that theory of yours

I replied because you are bitching about a lack of explanation about magical ghost soul physics in a fictional fantasy setting. we know enough that the magic gives unprecedented functionality. that's how magic typically does shit. this is true for every single fictional story that uses magic. you choosing to bitch about this one instance of magic being used for unprecedented functionality is just dumb. it's not inconsistent because it's explained by magic. what is it that you want ? do you want kubo to explain WHY the magic has unprecedented functionality ? do you understand that such a thing is idiotic to expect ? you might as well wish for every fiction writer to explain in detail why everything that divorces the story from reality happens the way it does in infinite detail. why does yellow sun radiation let superman shoot lasers, or ignore gravity ? why does magic exist in harry potter ? why do saiyans look human , or speak earth languages ?

the fact is that the functionality of rukias technique is consistent with the mechanisms at her disposal in her universe. it's reishi manipulation, to an extent which allows her to do something not intuitive with \\\\standard models of reality, to which she is not subject to\\\\. there is no more logic required to make that consistent.

God, you dull retard don't understand shit. Get it through your thick skull that the way magic works in fiction isn't completely fucking random. Bleach magic also has rules by which it has to work.

When I'm pointing out at the fact that you can't be double-dead you just stand there and scream "NUH-UH, IT'S MAGIC, WITH IT YOU CAN BE TRIPLE-DEAD!". Maybe in a universe that has four fucking underworlds, but this isn't the case in here.

Reishi has been shown do do shit like this though. See the Mayuri fight vs Ishida where ishida's arm wasn't even working and he used reishi to make it work. I don't think you know how reishi works. Rukia is literally made from reishi so I don't see how it's bullshit that she is able to manipulate it really well in order to use this technique especially since she trained with the Royal Guard.

Except that's not the sort of thing I was talking about. I don't need an explanation for that, since it's not against other rules that were set by the mangaka.

In Bleach, Rukia is supposedly double-dead while being alive at the same time. And this little fact is what makes no fucking sense.

>>101572392
Shinigami aren't dead. When you """""die"""" in the real world, you simply flip over to the mirror-universe, soul society. Instead of atoms, you're made up of what are called (for simplicity's sake) spirit particles. Their laws of physics share some similarities with normal matter but also have some differences. Shinigami are still "alive" and have many of the same requirements as living humans, albeit in slightly different forms.

When you die as a spirit-being you die "for real". Soul Society is a purgatory controlled by the Soul King, designed to snare souls in between life and death, for purposes yet unknown except to people like Urahara and Aizen
>>
>>101572200
yes. it has rules. -the rules haven't been clearly defined to the extend that we know what functionality is possible and what isn't in every single instance- this is typical with magic. you're fucking dumb. oh my god. I cannot talk to you any longer. if you do not understand why the functionality is plausibly consistent with the ghost soul magic and physics, you never will, and no amount of embarrassingly catered explanation will fix your broken understanding of many concepts.

She's made of reishi, anon. She's a ghost for god's sake. Her body is her "will" - there is no additional soul in a fucking soul. If she suspends molecules in her body (which would be reishi) she suspends her very existance. Am I more clear now?

there is no confusion. the functionality is consistent as it needs to be for the amount of information presented.

you have been clear, but that is not inconsistent. she's using a reishi technique to avoid being suspended. we do not know what the technique is, or how it is acting, so we cannot say that it's functionality is inconsistent. whatever it may be doing, it's entirely plausible within the constraints of weird soul magic and ghost physics. until she says, 'the technique I'm using does x' and x conflicts with the displayed functionality, there is no conflict. retard.

Despite As Nodt's philosophical mumbo jumbo there's still a perfectly logical medical explanation for why fear doesn't work on Rukia.
As your body temperature drops certain body functions start shutting themselves down as well to preserve energy.

To begin with emotions are just chemical processes, by lowering her body temperature Rukia shuts down her emotions completely, thus making her impervious to Nodt's Fear.
She becomes the perfect 'ice queen' archetype as well as a frosty ghoul.

So what if Rukia changes her temperature as she said, but for momments, so she can talk and move and froze in a matter of seconds, she only needs to be constantly frozen where the fear AIDS is on her body, but her mouth is still warm so she can talk and shit.

The absolute zero was explained before, she is frozen but she is going with the momentum that she had before, she is like a rock and As Nodt just didn't dodge her because "lol I don't know what's going on"

Well, seeing as most chemical processes in the body shut down after a shift of just a few degrees from norm (for instance a sustained fever of around 108F is basically fatal) it seems a bit overboard, but hey Hitsugaya has an ice dragon wrapped around him and genryuusai has a fire coming off him so powerful it erases anything it touches.

Oh boy, all this butthurt arguing over in-universe mechanics.

Kubo used actual thermodynamics to explain Rukia's ability. Therefor, actual thermodynamics apply. Therefor, absolute zero is a complete lack of energy within molecules. Therefor, those molecules are neither moving nor decaying. Therefor time has literally stopped for those molecules.

As energy merely transfers rather than being created or destroyed, the only way to move those molecules is to introduce energy from outside, therefor absolutely nothing about Rukia using it on herself as a combat ability makes sense, and Kubo dun goof'd. Use it on an enemy? Sure. Use it and move for 4 seconds? Ummm....
>>
>>101577049
Not really. He used spirit-particle thermodynamics, not atomic thermodynamics. Soul Society and its Shinigami have different laws of physics that share some similarities with our world but are not exactly the same.
>>
>>101577389
>He used spirit-particle thermodynamics
Where did it say that this applies only to some spirit-particles? How did you come to this conclusion when there is no mention of that in the chapter?

All I can see is some talk on how tempratures affect molecules, that's all. There is no reason to believe he came up with some sort of spirit-physics.

Case closed.
>>
>>101577549
It's implied because they're spirit entities fighting in the spirit world, it's been long established since the early soul society arc that everything in that world is made from a different substance and those substances interact differently with "real world" substances.
>>
>>101577603
Um, it's been implied that even if it's a different substance, it is still a substance. And guess what substances have? Energy. Guess what happens to substances without energy?
>>
>>101577667
>even if it's a different substance, it is still a substance. And guess what substances have? Energy.

Your argument is rather poorly constructed. We're dealing with a different universe with its own laws of physics here, your assumptions based on your own experience with physics in your universe don't apply. Even "energy" means something different here.
>>
>>101577765
And yet I see a human world with all the regular physics we're accustomed to. The only change comes with this extra molecule, reishi. Reishi is literally the only thing different, and it's one, single molecule that, while it behaves in unique ways just like every molecule, still follows the same rules, as Kubo himself has established, in this particular chapter by using thermodynamics to explain what was going on.
>>
>>101577765
Actually it is your argument that is poorly constructed.

You base your judgement on personal assumptions. If the author didn't explictly say that something in a way his universe works might be different from how it is in the real one, there is no reason to believe otherwise.

Or do you believe there are unicorns in Bleach just because the manga features supernatural beings?

I appreciate the assist, but I'd really rather you backed up the argument that Kubo goofed rather than attacking his own. All that does is make someone dig their heels in.

By that same argument, you can't disprove unicorns exist in the BLEACH universe or in SS, either. This is just going to end in a roundabout.

Somehow that sword is absorbing enormous amounts of energy, all that energy will have to go somewhere later.

Yeah, I can't do that, but we both know they don't. Nor does the Aizen's invisible Teapot circulating around Ichigo's dick, although "shinigami magic" explanation would be most likely enough to make the idea plausible for some of you. You realize that the burden of proof is on the one making a claim, right? You could google that thing up, you know.


And shounen is not a genre

MMMM no Somehow you don't get the concept that molecules can come close to absolute zero then achieve absolute zero the instant something stops moving, also it's fucking magic and a story get over it. B-but muh physics degree, Take it to bill nye that science goy.

Yammi - Yeah, probably
Syazelapporo - According to a novel and implied in conversation in the manga to have been powerful enough
Zommari - Don't know any confirmation of VL status here
Luppi - Same
Grimmjow - Same, but more arguable
>>
>>101582586
GRimmjow was a panther, not human
Aaroneieirereo is Gillian
Syazel is debatable because of the novel
NNNNoittra, debatable but not enough powerfu enough
Starkk, he was same before Hougyoku transformation so Vasto Lorde
Barragan, same
Harribel, same
Ulquiorra, he is Vasto Lorde, its told in Unmasked

Also since Grimmjow isnt a vasto lorde, why the fuck Espada below him would be Vasto's

because he isnt?
Or maybe he really hid is Segunda Etapa from Aizen.
Also Starkk was completely on a different level

It's not arguable, it's a stated fact. That's the definition of a single digit arrancar. It's not implied by how strong you think they were.

I just re-read it said only the top three were Vasto Lorde before becoming arrancar, and the rest are probably debatable. You guys are completely right.

>>101577978

No, actually, my argument is based on explicit facts that are stated in the manga. You should probably go and reread it if you've forgotten that much and are just basing your assumptions off a desire to be contrarian.

Aaroniero was Espada 09 and was a Gillian.
>>
Rukia is already dead, she's a ghost.

So when she freezes herself to absolute zero she's double dead. Frozen ghost dead. Dead-on-dead dead.

Is there even a word for how awesome Kubo is?

Rukia's new bankai should be the frozen center of a dead star where the pressure and temperature has stopped all atomic movement.
>>
>>101584112

The density of Starrk's power was killing every Hollow around him due to it choking the life out of them. He literally had to create Lilynette from himself to stop being lonely.

Ulquiorra was a Vasto Lorde since his shape prior to his mask coming off was incredibly human, and it was his silhouette being used to describe Vasto Lordes to begin with.

>Implying that after Segunda Etapa he and Starrk weren't the most powerful Espada
>Lanza De Relampago was literally a nuclear lance
>>
>>101584112
stark didnt have the right mindset to be fighting. he never once truly gave it his all, he was too much of a lazy faggot to give a damn.

if he had gone brutally all out, his rank would have actually
shown
>>
They can't break off because that would mean the atoms and molecules would have to change position, and they can't because they are ghost frozen and can't move.

You could drop her into a black hole and she wouldn't be hurt.

>>101584746
>Ulquiorra was a Vasto Lorde since his shape prior to his mask coming off was incredibly human, and it was his silhouette being used to describe Vasto Lordes to begin with.

The problem with this argument is that how Kubo defined "Vasto Lorde" was incredibly vague to begin with and is not simply determined by powerlevel. The Ulquiorra sidestory chapter show several black silhouettes similar to Ulquiorra yet they seem to reject him based on his unique appearance. Were they "true" Vasto Lorde? Did Aizen even succeed in finding these Vasto Lorde? You can argue comparative powerlevels all day but its an issue that's never been explicitly covered by the author and likely never will be.

>The only thing that kept Whitebach from killing Ichigo was the fact that if he died, they'd cease to be, rather than him bullshitting his "master"

>>101584953

The only set rules that seems to be followed by the Vasto Lordes is that they all have vaguely human or near-human shapes.

Sharktits for example was basically a woman in a bodysuit with a mask and shark tooth sword, whereas Ulquiorra was Shikaka from the Wachati Tribe in a human-like form.

Barragan was basically The King of the Mountain Men, if he were a skeleton.

Starkk was The Man With No Name
>>
>people in this thread trying to make sense out of bleach

Forget it people, this is Kubo we're talking about. Shit makes by far less sense than even Naruto.
>>
>>101585097
If we're going by the assumption that each Resurrection form is a perfectly accurate rendition of their previous Hollow form, then most of the Arrancar were Vasto Lorde (unlikely); this probably only applies to Barragan and maybe Starrk although its never stated in the flashback whether or not he had become an Arrancar on his own. Harribel Hollow was anime-only so it can't really be counted.
>>
>>101585727

The act of becoming an Arrancar is what gave them their real human bodies back, bud. All the Ressurecion did was enable parts of their Hollow form to re-manifest.

There's no way you can say that Aye Aye Dinero and Glotoneria were Vasto Lorde level when their fucking lower half was a Cthulhu Spawn.

Barragan you can at least tell was a Lich before he became an Arrancar, somehow.
>>
>>101585819
That's exactly the point I'm making, there is very little to imply Vasto Lorde status solely from a resurrection.

I made no implication of Aaroniero being VL since he is clearly Gillian, but consider all three Primero Espada were human-esque in their releases I'd say Harribel's bears little physical distinction.

My guess is that Barragan was somewhere along the upper limits of what an Adjuchas menos can look like; there just isn't enough info on Vasto Lorde in general to classify anyone as being one (except maybe White...).
>>
>>101560901
As Nodt was my favorite quincy and this has to be the worst chapter in this arc yet. Can Kubo not do anything other than one sided fights, I was so hyped when Hitsugaya was getting raped by Domon Kashou, everything from that point is just dissapointing and feels like filler
>>
>>101566017
I understood this but she could still still have the fear of defeat. This chapter was bullshit.
>>
>>101586036

Pretty sure from Primera to Tricepta (Whatever the fuck the word for Third is, can't be assed) Espadas were all Vasto Lordes because it was even stated they were so powerful that their Ressurecions were forbidden in Las Noches due to how fucking big the energy release would be.
>>
>>101585265

See >>101584953
>>
>>101589280

>An Adjuchas even coming close to a Vasto Lorde in terms of power
>>
>>101589415
Aaroniero was a Gillian yet stronger than many Adjuchas. The point is since we don't know who is and isn't a Vasto Lorde, any comparisons in powerlevel are pointless; it could simply be comparing an Adjuchas to a much stronger Adjuchas.
>>
>>101589741
Thats a special case and explicity stated as such.

>>
>>101589796
>>101590153
There can't be multiple exceptions to a rule? There is no explicitly defined power marker for what is and isn't "Vasto Lorde"; you can speculate but there's currently no way to confirm it explicitly.
>>
>>101590167
>Saying this in an arc where Soi Fon and Rukia won

But yes, Kishi was worse than Kubo. He has Sakura say she's not going to be useless and in the exact same chapter has her get saved by Sasuke and Naruto.

>It is said that their entire number within Hueco Mundo can be counted with the fingers on one's hands. The combat capabilities of a Vasto Lorde are above those of the captains of the Gotei 13.
>>
>>101590167
Bleach women tend to be more useful than Naruto women. It is a know fact.
>>
>>101584953
This. Also, Arrancarization made the distinctions between the classes go away. How can you tell the difference between a very strong former Adjuucas Arrancar and a Vasto Lorde Arrancar? You can't. Nnoitra was almost certainly an Adjuucas when he became an Arrancar, but he leveled up to close to Vasto Lorde level.
>>
>>101591015
yeah right. Then shinji raped him. vasto lorde my ass
>>
>>101590827
This still doesn't give any sort of power marker as to who is and isn't a Vasto Lorde, as none of the Espada were clearly above Captain level.
>>
>>101591274

You've got to be literally fucking kidding if you didn't think Barragan was above Soi Feng in terms of power.

She COULDN'T FUCKING GET NEAR HIM DUE TO RESPIRA.
>>
>>101591339
Okay, but Soi Fon is just one captain out of 13+ Captain Level Shinigami. I'm sure at least one or two of them could beat him under the right circumstances.

And besides Barragan was defeated by a Kido Corps; wouldn't that make him "weaker" than a Captain by your scale? It's an arbitrary ranking system and not accurate for defining "Vasto Lorde". Also, see >>101591015
>>
>>101591519

You're forgetting that Hachi is one of the Visored and the only way to STOP Barragan was to teleport his Respira inside of him.

Jesus Christ it's like you faggots don't understand that the top three Espada were that way because of their previous menos class AND whatever ability they had with them save for Tier Harribel who didn't really seem to have anything nearly as powerful as Respira or Los Lobos.
>>
>>101592233
You're still implying that all three of them are Vasto Lorde when there is no criteria for defining who is and isn't Vasto Lorde. Saying they're Vasto Lorde because "they're the top three Espada" is circular reasoning.
>>
>>101592363
>>101592363
They were Vasto Lordes because they were humanoid (before and after being transformed by the Hogyoku) right?
>>
>>101592363

>Barragan subjugating literally dozens of Adjuchas under him
>Starkk killing every Hollow around him just by existing
>Tier Harribel in general

They're no match for the Sternritter, but they're far from being as weak as Grimmjow given that Ichigo nearly jobbed to him.
>>
>>101592456
Barragan... humanoid? Also we never saw either Starrk nor Harribel as full hollows.
>>101592467
Certainly it was unlikely Grimmjow was VL, but Noitra was much stronger than he, and Ulquiorra even stronger... so where is the line drawn? We simply can't say for sure, this discussion has been going on for years and I don't think there's any evidence left to uncover.
>>
>>101592670

Barragan was a fucking skeleton when Aizen met him. That's humanoid enough.
