>I CAN'T FEEL FEAR BECAUSE I'M TOO COLD
This just might be the most retarded thing to have ever happened in Bleach.
I would agree, but that's Rukia and Rukia is a miracle so no.
Damn it anon! When are they going to animate the last arc?
She can't feel because she's temporally dead.
But she's not. She has perfectly normal brain activity which is the one thing you would need to remove to be incapable of fear. Arbitrarily defining death in a way that doesn't involve brain activity to say "lol well technically I'm dead" is the most retarded thing in the world. Semantics don't change the fact that if you can think, you can fear.
It's shonen logic, dude, don't overthink it.
If you go that way you'll have to act like that with all shonen manga's details.
Rukia is ice cold but she gives me a really moe feeling so it's fine
Fear is an information generated by senses that travels through the body to the brain, it might even be considered as energy. If it's not totally abstract, it can somehow be freezed.
>She can't feel because she's temporally dead.
not really, anything freezes before it can even touch her, like with Yama and his flames.
>Fear is an information generated by senses that travels through the body to the brain
No it isn't. Maybe if you froze your heart you could prevent some of the panic but you would pass out in around 5 seconds from blood not going to your brain.
I guess reishi is now physical matter?
>Rukia is ice cold but she gives me a really moe feeling so it's fine
Frosty Moe region.
she doesn't feel emotion because she is a shell of her former self.
But then why couldn't she just damage parts of her cerebral cortex and become autistic to fear. Why was all this bullshit necessary.
Nah, she explains away her ability to move despite frozen as using the reishi to move her, kinda like Ishida did when he got paralyzed by Mayuri. If it were physical as well then it too would freeze and she just wouldn't move.
She can't feel fear because the fear isn't even effecting her because she managed to block it.
reminded me of this.
>Fear is an information generated by senses that travels through the body to the brain
You literally just made that up. Fear is something the brain generates in response to stimuli from the senses and it was made abundantly clear that she can see and hear just fine. Are you honestly going to try to tell me that nobody has ever experienced fear after seeing or being told something?
If she froze her body how does she even see or hear in the first place
I think she is kinda controlling the effects, so that she won´t get a higher pulse or her body would get stressed or agitated, ...yeah, so that she´ll stay cool.
>my molecules are currently in a suspended state
My sides are in a non-suspended state
>so that she won´t get a higher pulse or her body would get stressed or agitated
She outright stated that she froze her body to the point of her blood being frozen solid and then to her molecules being suspended. It's a little bit more extreme than you're suggesting.
Reishi + training. Read the chapter.
But how does she even manipulate reishi when her very neurons should be frozen, preventing her from even being able to think?
>rukias special power is to kill herself
I swear names and designs in bleach get worse and worse.
If this isn't the final arc we're gonna see clowns dressed in geometrical shapes next. And they'll be named stupid shit like Smösen Dösen, Abracafunkulus or Zzyzabvibabweh Hhngaramungllgh
I like tha documentary and Rukia sure is cool
Read. The. Chapter. Mangastreams translation makes it more clear.
>I have mastered the ability to function in a state of death by manipulating my own reishi.
>I swear names and designs in bleach get worse and worse.
I think you mean better and better. Mask de Masculine had the best design and name.
>If you go that way you'll have to act like that with all shonen manga's details.
Funny, since people go out of their way to make Bleach seem deep and well thought out.
I´ve been thinking about why dead people have blood and organs(yeah, this happens when you visit too many BLEACH-threads), I think it is because the mind remembers and so does the body, so yeah, they have organs because people think, they should have them, even if it just unconscious and they think, the organs are vital, eventhough they are not, we´ve seen it a lot of times that they survive being bisected, I think, it is all a will think, that gives the reishi form around this will, or soul full of memories from the mind and the body.
>Mask de Masculine had the best design and name.
Tell that to Äs Nödt
Kubo just rolls his head over his keyboard and sticks with whatever comes up.
>I have mastered the ability to function in a state of death by manipulating my own reishi.
But that's not an explanation! HOW can she manipulate reishi if her brain can't even function? What is she manipulating it with if not her mind?
I thought they were dead in first place
I see your problem. This is the first time Kubo has not instantly explained how exactly an ability works and I get it. We can only hope he does otherwise, well, fuck. He stopped trying a while ago anyways.
So did we all, but Kubo apparently disagrees.
They are but at the same time they aren't. I mean, yes, they did die but this is like a second life sorta deal, I guess.
I don't fucking know, why am I trying to make sense of this?
>What is she manipulating it with if not her mind?
Aren't shinigami already dead and made of reishi anyway? What's so special
>HOW can she manipulate reishi if her brain can't even function?
But it can even As Nodt asks Rukia this she can move if she is supposed to be dead. Rukia freezes herself while at the same time manipulating reishi to be able to be "alive".
Can anyone really be far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
If she was absolute zero, wouldn't all the air surrounding surrounding her freeze?
She should be trapped inside a giant block of dry ice.
Some believe the twists are well thought out, and certain things about Ichigo are arguably well thought out and planned, but I don't think anyone is going to try to argue Bleach is anything deep. It's a battle shonen that sometimes plays and messes around with shonen troupes and every once in awhile does something that's a little deeper than a battle shonen. But's its still just a battle shonen and we all understand that.
I think the explanation would be that, in the bleach series, the consciousness in part of the soul instead of the brain. So her soul is manipulating reishi. Or maybe she is just shutting down all the physical effects of fear, like the increased heartbeat, and by manipulated her senses she can control her fear. Would you fear being tortured if you didn't feel pain?
Alright how can people actually be this stupid.
HE EXPLAINS people fear dying. They don't want to die. Dying means you can't do anything.
She killed herself. To avoid that fear. If anything you niggers need to complain that this was the perfect fucking matchup for her and that it's bullshit that just because she is dead and doesn't fear death that it means she has no other fears unless that's the only fear that he was playing with
>I think the explanation would be that, in the bleach series, the consciousness in part of the soul instead of the brain. So her soul is manipulating reishi.
That makes sense, but then fear would have to be something infects the soul and not the body.
>Or maybe she is just shutting down all the physical effects of fear, like the increased heartbeat, and by manipulated her senses she can control her fear. Would you fear being tortured if you didn't feel pain?
I really don't think so, because fear itself is a lot more than just increased heartbeat and what not. Byakua was completely capable of overcoming the effects of fear through discipline, but there was much more to it then that. I might go back and look at the explanation that was given for why he couldn't control it.
I like this explanation better than the entire
>SHE CAN'T FEAR FEAR BECAUSE SHE'S ALREADY FEARED ENOUGH FEAR TO FEAR
>BUT SHE CAN FEAR FEAR BECAUSE YOU CAN'T JUST NOT FEAR FEAR
>FUCK YOU HER LIFE IS SUFFERING
>YEA WELL FUCK YOU BYUAKGA'S LIFE MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN SUFFERING
Shitstorm we had last week.
This is completely wrong. Rukia couldn't fell fear simply because As Nodt's powers couldn't get to Rukia.
That's still retarded though because 1. temporarily killing yourself with the full intention of coming back and remaining alive afterwards wouldn't remove the fear of permanent death 2. she's not fucking dead at all in any meaningful sense if she can still think, speak and act and 3. it was fucking explained in the battle against byakuya that the fear As Nodt instills is a fear WITHOUT REASON which was the entire reason he couldn't overcome it, despite having many times been afraid of death but overcome it just fine.
>shinigami and all structures and objects in the spirit world are meant to be made out of spirit-stuff
IT'S FUCKING BLEACH
HOW IS THIS IS THE BREAKING POINT FOR ANY OF YOU FAGGOTS
If somebody had asked you beforehand "Hey, do you think this chapter is going to make logical sense?" and you answered "Yes" you were doomed from the start.
The dumbest thing to happen in Bleach? Not Ishida getting his magic powers back through a dumb magic ritual despite being told he can never get his powers back?
This, not Ichigo getting STRAIGHT UP MURDERED and coming back from the dead because lol hollow?
THIS, NOT GOD DAMN NUMBER 0 ESPADA?
But this chapter does make logical sense and so do all the things you mentioned except for Ishida getting his powers back that was an ass pull.
You could probably explain away a ton of the bullshit by saying Rukia's sword helps her control her reishi/stay conscious even at these absurdly cold temperatures.
Hell, Kubo could explain away most of his bullshit plotholes by relying on the Zanpaktous and their bullshit powers
You know what Rukia actually is, OP?
She's the miracle of Bleach.
You know the meaning of a miracle?
Making the impossible possible.
Hence, Rukia made this chapter perfectly acceptable to accept. Now excuse me while I stare at this chapter's cover for another hour.
>Making the impossible possible
Do the impossible see the invisible
>It's shonen logic, dude, don't overthink it.
Shonen heroes warp reality with their convictions. Their power work because they believe in them so much that it becomes real.
That's why the most powerful shonen protagonists are retards : they're less burdened with logic and common sense.
I love how people argue that rukias not feeling fear is bullshit and accept that this guy magically makes people afraid.
reminds me of barragan being done in by his own petard.
>she's not fucking dead at all in any meaningful sense if she can still think, speak and act
Even so I agree with you in the fact that even in this scenario there is still something to be feared even if you are dead.
>but I don't think anyone is going to try to argue Bleach is anything deep.
You haven't been off of 4chan in a while, have you? You innocent child.
Most interpretation of zombies are beings on autopilot, instinctively feeding and flinch from absolutely NO external factors because the passage of the brain that involves regular human instinct has long-since shut down.
If what I'm reading is correct, Rukia still has a fully-functional brain, even in this supposed state of death. In that case, she shouldn't be immune because the enzymes/chemicals/signals that produce fear as well as the area in the brain that reads and interprets fear are still active.
Basically, Kubo did this because he can't get away with Rukia going "I'm on angel dust, come at me bro". On a count of Japan being so damned Anti-drug that you can do more time than a murderer for being caught with a joint.
dat rukia ass.
>Rukia's power is Zombie.
Kubo let it die, zombie powder is cancelled and you will never write it again Pls stap don't defile awesome Rukia-chan like this pls.
It may have been retarded but holy fuck does she look cute here.
God, I think I might actually be too excited that Rukia might be relevant to realize how dumb this'll be.
>Inb4 implying Rukia will ever be relevant
I just caught up with Bleach after reading 86 chapters of this shit yesterday and had to rush alot, are the new powers Rukia and Renji have pretty much a new/unlocked bankai?
Renji gets new Bankai, Rukia gets insane fucking Shikai. She might not even NEED a Bankai.
You literally just read it. How can you ask that question?
There powers are the result of the RG training. Renji got his bankai's true power by learning it's full name, and we're not sure about Rukia yet, though it's probably likely she learned her true name or something to that effect because her powers increased A LOT.
Rukia has a fucking bullshit ability and Renji has a new bankai.
I am so glad I dropped this after Aizen lost
why doesn't kubo move on already
People die when they are killed except in Bleach when they're already dead, then you can still kill them but not unless they're even more dead than dead.
I don't even know any more.
>Implying Aizen actually lost
>Implying all this isn't Aizen fucking with everyone
>Implying this isn't all according to plan
What are you talking about? Aizen always wins.
>Renji got his bankai's true power by learning it's full name
We already knew he was going to have a new bankai considering Kubo said this in an interview. Also Yumichika pretty much did the same thing with his shikai.
>though it's probably likely she learned her true name or something to that effect because her powers increased A LOT
No likely at all considering she called it by the same name.
>criticizing something you don't even read
Rukia isn't dead.
The pseudoscience shit in this chapter is even more retarded.
>She's already dead. How can she made herself even more dead?
>It's Bleach science! Dead behave like the living!
>But absolute zero doesn't work like that! How can she move?
>Cuz she already dead! Logic don't apply here!
But that's how they get to Sereitei in the first place, right? They were alive at some point and they get transported there after they die from the living realm.
I'm guessing you've never read or watched anything in a marathon fashion?
Everything starts to just merge into one while reading weekly ou have a week to put everything into perspective while doing it all in just a few hours you forget certain parts to recall others.
At lest its like that for me.
I want to fuck Rukia against a table.
>Marathoned a manga
>Can't remember the latest thing that happened
That's not normal, m8
Yo, would absolute zero count as a localized timestop? If there's not even movement on a molecular level...
We all do.
Eh, Maybe we both just have shit memories.
this single page makes the chapter worthwhile
>Not wanting Rukia to fuck you against a table.
Well yeah she is dead, but she didn't die in this chapter like some like to think.
Time still exists even if nothing moves. Also absolute zero by definition at -273.15 C does not mean that there isn't movement at a molecular level since temperature itself is an average of molecular energy. It would have to be true absolute zero as defined as completely molecular stillness. But whatever, it's Bleach.
Absolute zero is impossible to our knowledge. But time wouldn't stop.
You know what, in the Slice of Life High School days of Bleach, I was a huge Rukia fan. Loved her, thought it was great.
Now that she's all-serious, icy icy snow freeze so cold absolute zero is it freezing in here or is it just me...Renji can fucking have her.
>One of the most ridiculously dumb chapters in Bleach
>Made absolutely great cause the source of it is Rukia
So dumb yet so smart.
How long until we see Ichigo, I bet he looks badass dual wielding now.
How do you measure time if nothing moves?
I don't care what you guys say. This shit is update worthy.
>in the Slice of Life High School days of Bleach
I miss those days ;_;
She was always serious. Now she's just over powered and serious.
He's too busy getting his dick wet at the thought of seeing Rukia again.
Thats because Rukia opened up for the first time since her orphaned child hood with her fuckbuddy renji.
This single page redeemed the entire chapter.
The progression of events (what we call time) cannot happen in Absolute Zero, which is why it's purely theoretical. If time (molecules moving) stops, we get Absolute Zero.
I want to marry her in a church and hold her hand
What's Hitsugaya's role now that Rukia is ice?
>implying Renji has a chance with her
Not necessarily. As Nodt's fear is a poison. When injected in someone's body, poison spreads by circulating through one's bloodstream. Rukia simply countered that by using her Zanpakuto's ice ability and the sheer power of her own reiatsu to halt the flow of blood in her body long enough to take out As Nodt. It's not that hard to figure out.
She's as cold as ice.
She's willing to sacrifice her love.
>I CAN'T FEEL FEAR BECAUSE I'M TOO COLD
>This just might be the most retarded thing
If it's so retarded, explain pic related. Or maybe the Inuit can give the polar bear a tummy tickle because he has NO FEAR
No, she says pretty explicitly that she's dead. It sounds like she's frozen herself cryogenically and is using her reishi to simulate her thought patterns and move her body.
What are any of the captains' roles now that renji, rukia, and ichigo are the strongest people in Soul Society.
It's like you missed the part where he said that the shit doesn't have to come in contact with the body.
She is also stronger Byakuya despite not having a bankai.
Bleach went so off the rails at the end of the hollowification arc that it could never get back on.
All hollowification buildup dead and buried- check
All popular character get to fight and win despite being a billion times weaker than newly introduced characters- check
Legitimately rewriting your main character's powers so he can get another power boost- check
I know. I've seen it before; it happens all the time.
>Willing to sacrifice he love for Ichigo.
I will drop the series.
>Inb4 Implying you can drop Bleach
Godamn, she reached absolute zero with just her Shikai.
Where the fuck do you go from there? What will her Bankai do? You can't be colder than absolute cold.
Also, maybe this is why Rukia's sister died. Because maybe she had the same power and caught a cold because of it.
Fuck that. I want to take Rukia out to an expensive dinner at a five-star hotel, take her back to my hotel room, and tenderly make love to her on a king size mattress. Nothing but the best for the ice princess.
larger area, instant drop to absolute zero for a timestop.
I will read anything that has a character named Abracafunkulus in it.
It's amazing how fast Rukia went from completely useless to having one of, if not the most, OP ability.
>You can't be colder than absolute cold.
Except he does need to come in contact.
That was my only problem with this chapter. I get that the ability is supposed to be extremely special and cool but using the actual phrase Absolute Zero just distracted from the story and made me start pointing out all the logical problems with anything being able to move in Absolute Zero.
sode no shiryaku no tachi
Before freezing herself, she manipulated her reishi to take over the functions of her body, including her mind. She uploaded her brain to her reishi.
Holy shit Rukia is fucking metal
Best fucking girl in Bleach
I want to build a Rukia shrine to worship her that she'd be weirded out by if she ever discovered
Holy shit, my dick
Rukia is a miracle of the universe
Someday she'll have to pay the price.
This is the biggest asspull I have ever seen.
Yeah. As Nodt basically said that his poison could also be transmitted through the air, meaning that you'd have to breathe it. Rukia was able to use those same abilities to temporarily cut off her flow of oxygen. The only thing keeping her alive at that point was her spirit energy and her sheer willpower. The question is how long she can keep this ability up as most likely it places enormous strain on her body. It's a good thing she took out As Nodt quickly or else her own ability could have killed her.
That's spirit particles, not spirit-stuff.
Presumably spirit particles are just the shinigami counterparts to regular particles.
>Rukia's grand power is to kill herself and make herself temporarily dead
>The exact same thing Komamura did
>Kubo in charge of good writing
>being astounded at its retardation
>posting about it
why do people like rukia again?
Not most likely, she SAYS that she can't use it too long because her body can't take it.
I think it means for Byakuya as in order to keep Byakuya from jobbing to As Nodt again, Rukia sacrificed Byakuya's pride by making As Nodt job to her when Byakuya jobbed to As Nodt.
Lol on top of the already being dead as shinigami. Getting into some meta shit here.
This guy gets it.
If Hitsugaya pulled this stunt, it'd be a stupid asspull. But since it's Rukia all is forgiven.
>you in charge of reading comprehension
What's Kubo going to do next week for Valentines?
? It's Foreigner you dolt.
Ichigo X Rukia Hentai comic
Next chapter, As Nodt uses Volstandig and breaks free from the ice.
Rukia goes Bankai and ???????
Can't even come up with anything that can top absolute zero.
>Byakuya jobs to one of the most powerful Stern Ritter
>Rukia easily makes As Nodt her bitch
inb4 Byakuya commits sudoku
That's so stupid. As previous anons said she can still think so she feels fear. And if she froze her molecules, why is she moving? Shouldn't she feel no emotion at all as well and not want to do anything? This is the most retarded move, glad I'm holding this off til end of arc
I don't care how cold she is, I would hug and make love to Rukia so much that she'd be constantly warm.
She froze herself to the point of being effectively dead. Komamura ripped out his own heart and turned into his Anti-Fursona as a literal zombie while channeling his Ancestral Taco Bell spirit Don José.
I'm just waiting for her to job to YWHbach when he casts Turn Undead and forces her to fight Ichigo.
thread is now over
He's no a soul eater. He's a soul parasite.
There's been like a dozen explanation posts this thread. If you want to be an idiot, that's your call, but it's very clearly explained.

she fucking stopped all molecular motion for fucks sakes. how the fuck is she still technically alive? Then again, they're in the spirit world and shit... this whole fucking manga makes no sense any more.
Reishi manipulation. Jesus Christ how do people not understand Rukia's power still?
all you said is true, why the greentext?
the zampaktoe's edge exists to sever your fear from you

Also, Rukia has some cable that needs installing and Ichigo is delivering a pizza for some reason.
Seriously, most Stern Ritter battles so far have been Captains jobbing one after another so weaker allies can shine after their BS asspull powerups.
I swear, if Kubo does this with Kempachi, Shinsui or Ukitake as well...
guys, whats cooler than being cool?
yfw she just used a fucking Quincy technique
>glad I'm holding off til end of arc
Bull fucking shit. Get out of here attention whore.
The amount of sleezy porno guitar music it would take the fill that scenario is staggering.
You guys realize that Byakuya is doing Royal Guard training too, right?
He's going to be even more OP. Just wait.
Nodt's power couldnt get to her, she said she froze her blood for a reason as Nodt's power needs to touch her which it did not. It literally froze on contact and that layer of ice protected her.
I don't think it's possible for Kenpachi to job at this point given he's going to be fighting WITH his fucking sword spirit talking to him and having removed all his bullshit "Tools of justice" nonsense in order to fight people longer.
If anything, it'll be Kenpachi that kills that "SCALES OF NATURE" faggot Haschwald.
No it hasn't. She somehow controls her entire body with reishi? Bullshit but Okay. But as I said, theres no way she can only control one emotion by using that move.
i was kind of hoping he'd only be healed and sent back
Nope last time we saw him he was still completely fucked up even after his healing.
go back to /v/ with your mgr shit.
The manga very clearly explains what her ability does. That's all.
FEAR is a CONCEPT. Sure, it has physical traits like increased heartrate, pupil dilation etc, but it has no physical source in the body. You can press a spot on your back and "feel fear." It's not a pressure point, it's not a taste, it's not a poison. It's a thought. A mental reaction to an idea. The stimulus is sight or touch, perhaps, but the point is if you can THINK, you can FEAR. You can simply think about fear. That's why simply freezing her body is a really, really stupid plot device to escape fear. The only way to remove fear is to become an automaton. Instead, they made her body inanimate and turned her "soul" into a "puppeteer" which is more GOD than spirit. Why use her body at all, then?
Fear is the mind killer

>Not expecting 4Chan to bitch at Kubo
Except that's not how fear fucking works. As Nodt spent the whole goddamn chapter explaining how fear is extremely rational.
Haschwald is going to be killed by either Ichigo (in your typical rematch after a loss like with Grimmjow and Ullquiora), or by Shunsui.
Well, Kubo had to satisfy the Rukiafags somehow by making her seemingly win a fight in a landslide when her other two to three ones were disappointing and boring.
Especially since without her little asspull reishi manipulation, she's still a shitty swordsman.
I'd fuck rukia's private particles.
Well yeah, just because it's a perfect counter doesn't mean it's not worth criticism. The argument is about the mechanics of how her body can move while frozen and how she can think with a frozen brain, the focus isn't on the irrational fear part.
Right, because irrational fear is a product of the body's instinctive reflexes. Rational fear can be defeated with logic and conscious thought, but irrational, animalistic fear cannot. So you just prevent the body from reacting to it.
Anyone with social anxiety should be mad jelly of Rukia's power right about now.
>FEAR is a CONCEPT. Sure, it has physical traits like increased heartrate, pupil dilation etc, but it has no physical source in the body. You can press a spot on your back and "feel fear." It's not a pressure point, it's not a taste, it's not a poison.
As Nodt literally uses a poison like fear and Rukia stopped that poison from entering her body thus having no fear.
>>this week Rukia reveals the perfect counter to irrational fear, completely shutting off the body's instincts and leaving only logical thought behind
That didn't happen though. I swear sometimes i feel like i'm the only one who understands what's happening in this chapter.
Kubo was the secret member of the band. He's been planning longer than we ever thought.
So anytime you're nervous your body temperature plummets? Sounds like a hilarious catch 22 in bed.
The best part is that this power has absolutely no fucking function outside of this one incredibly unique circumstance.
>Everyone doesn't want the incredibly OP power of moving their temperature down to absolute zero.
Anyone wanna watch Bleach with me?
I should have everything, including the movies and specials.
Or we could just chill, listen to Bleach OST and watch the slideshow of my Rukia folder get on my level
I'm too lazy to go back to the Byakuya fight but did Nodt ever use poison before? It just seemed to sort of hit Byakuya from being around Nodt. Because if it's always a poison, couldn't it just be as easy as not getting hit?
I-I wanna watch your Rukia slideshow.
She cant be poisoned, she can use the cold to cauterize wounds when needed at a single moment. She can freeze anything she touches and anything that comes into contact with her when she reaches absolute zero.
You do realize the moment she moved her temperature to the Kelvin range she said she only had four seconds of mobility, right?
Take that in for a second. Against any other Sternritter she would've fucking jobbed so hard it isn't even remotely comprehensible.
I'm to lazy to do it too, but As Nodt states in this chapter that his liquid has to come in contact with someone.
Except there's the possibility that she could've frozen them as well.
She can prevent herself being used as a puppet because she can freeze her body when needed. If she was fighting an opponent like byakuya she would stand a better chance against his blade attack then anyone because for all effective purposes shes dead and stabbing would do jack shit. This power is op
>using real logic in a supernatural setting
I guess you could say that her new power is just... 0K
>shatters like glass
She explicitly said her blood was frozen. She doesn't bleed in a world of blades, claws and teeth.

>Kubo just rolls his head over his keyboard and sticks with whatever comes up.
Well then I'm still waiting for "It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times".
Hokay. There doesn't seem to be much viewers anyway.
She can freeze problem areas dipshit, her sword is the conduit for her cold.
>Implying she couldn't freeze him immediantly afterwards then shatter him
>Implying she couldn't job him like Renji did
>because for all effective purposes shes dead and stabbing would do jack shit
But one of his splints would be enough to completely crush her body, being at 0K makes you really rigid and stuff and easy to shatter
It obviously doesn't shatter since it can move in this fight and she's already taken damage. Though she probably can't heal without help so she'd be stuck in the frozen state if she got mortal wounds until she found a medic
Yeah for 4 seconds...
4 seconds is all you need to job someone
You seem to be forgetting that Yamamato's bankai literally CUT THINGS out of existence.
Rukia has absolutely no chance against YHWach and it's hilarious that faggots would think otherwise given that if he regains ALL OF HIS SOUL, he'd potentially have the ENTIRE STERNRITTER powers arsenal at his disposal just by inscribing shit like a Survivor song on his body and choosing what letters to use for each power.
>Rukia is the single most overpowered person in Bleach now
As she should be.
There's always gonna be SOMEONE who's retardedly broken overpowered, may as well be her this time.
"I've got frozen blood, so I can't bleed!"
"...or move at all, because I'm a SOLID object incapable of FLEXION because any strain on FROZEN BLOOD would cause it to break and shatter."
"But that's okay, at absolute zero, nothing moves at all, so it's like hitting a completely invincible wall. I mean, after all, time has STOPPED flowing!"
>implying its possible to reach absolute 0 in non isolated enviroment
Good luck getting though 10 trillion skeletons in 4 seconds.
>CUT THINGS out of existence.
His fire simply is too hot and removes nothing behind.
Still wont work on absolute zero
Rukia can kill Bach for 4 seonds
So rukia is now accelerator because nothing can reach her absolute zero self, every attack will just stop moving completely
So if i got a pane of glass at absolute zero and shot a regular bullet at it, what would happen?
The bullets molecules would stop moving just as they are about to touch the glass causing the bullet to simply drop to the ground
anything that literally comes into contact with her in 0k flash freezes

This is her bankai
She's absolute zero on the inside, her surface will always be just slightly above absolute zero because it's constantly interacting with the environment. It's still enough to freeze scrubs cold.

>That Ichigo Vs. Kaian fight though
>Kaian would probably get his ass kicked though
Okay, so if she's forcefully moving absolute zero molecules by manipulating reishi, she's essentially stopping time in that area and dragging it into contact of flowing time. This would do one of two things:
1. Override the flowing time particles, eliminating their existence because she just broke physics. Once time starts moving again, it just replaces everything where it stands.
2. It doesn't override, but instead acts like INSTANT travel: immovable molecules suddenly displacing air or rock or body or anything in flowing time would happen INSTANTLY. All that pressure would slam flowing particles into each other at impossible high speed. It would be nuclear FUSION of nearly every particle in the area. Rukia, moving around a 0K through "reishi manipulation" magic would cause instant and constant NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS traveling any distance.
What the ever living fuck Kubo.
The saddest thing is, as much as people love/hate him. I could see Wakamoto being the perfect YHwach. That fucking smug laugh would fit him perfectly.
>Byakuya appears to help Rukia and Ichigo
>Notices Shiba, spits softly
>A skeleton hand grabs his foot
>It's his wife and Rukia's sister
You dont seem to get it
She is literally untouchable and 1 hits everything
>She outright stated that she froze her body to the point of her blood being frozen solid and then to her molecules being suspended. It's a little bit more extreme than you're suggesting.
Yeah. Basically, the crippling parts of fear are the physical reactions. The brain screaming out the signals that gush the chemicals that spike the heartbeat and make the muscles go all twitchy and all that stuff.
Probably Nodt's power triggers a feedback loop in the target's pre existing fears that sends the physical effects spiraling out of control, so the target is paralyzed. The mental part starts the physical part, the physical part amplifies the mental part, back and forth endlessly. So yeah, that's not going to do much to a corpsicle.
>But how does she even manipulate reishi when her very neurons should be frozen, preventing her from even being able to think?
Hello, and welcome to Bleach. She's a spirit, remember? Don't overthink it.
You're not seeming to understand that outside of this very, VERY convenient matchup, Rukia can't win against the BBEG of the arc. She's not going to because compared to Ichigo she's irrelevant.
I wouldn't be surprised if As Nodt isn't even dead and releases his Volstadig next chapter and shows her the true essence of irrational fear.
Vashta Nerada style.
>Brings back every villain
You seem to be mixing up the concept of absolute zero with general relativity. Absolute zero matter is not "stopped it time", it simply has zero entropy. Both of your proposed points are mistaken.
>Barragan Louisenbarn comes back
>ABSOLUTE ZERO VS ABSOLUTE DEATH
would freeze muh dick a thousand times over
Hows that related with Vashta's, they are just hungry bitches
Make it happen, Kubo.
>She's a spirit, remember?
Can spirits freeze?
Her bankai is heat death of the universe.

So, let's hypothetically consider I licked Rukia's neck. Does it mean my tongue would get stuck?
I think it's funny that Hitsugaya is working on his physical combat while Rukia is working on her Ice.

Her Bankai will be stealing other peoples heat and freezing them.
Also it will help her keep absolute zero form more than 4 secs
Lets hypothetically say I stuck my penis in her. Would it be stuck there forever?
>Bleach: A Christmas Story
Bats and moles arent scared of dark, also snakes.

>Her Bankai will be stealing other peoples heat and freezing them.
But absolute zero doesn't allow the transfer of heat
You'd both frantically try to pry it out, after three minutes it suddenly snaps off. She's more concerned if it's stuck there now.
Fuck it then she will steal cold from people and let them burn because too much heat
Let's hypothetically say I stuck my tongue in her vagina. Would it be stuck there forever?
They all have natural nocturnal predators.
>dem scapula bones
>Rukia can't win against the BBEG of the arc
Her huge powerup has a huge weakness: she can't kill what she can't hit, and this is a war against Quincies. You know, those guys who traditionally are fast as fuck and kill things with projectiles at long range. And Ishida happens to be a traditionalist who still fights that way.
Perfect. Word for word perfect. That's just Kubo enough to happen.
So some anon said that Rukia used her ability where she froze her body (probably unconsciously) in chapter 297 so I went back to check. What do you think? (see the ice layer on her)
I can't hold all this kubo.

For fucks sake people, its shonen, fuck logic as long as its a power up, thats their logic, you would call them retards but you are the ones with brain damage for even trying to use normal logic on this
I'm going to laugh so hard if and when she jobs to Ishida. The tears from people calling her the most OP thing right now will be so deliciously salty.
I will fucking...
I don't know what I'd do actually...
Oh for fuck's sake.
There is already thread
Ichigo would be PISSED.
>I can't feel fear because I'm technically dead right now!
Wasn't she always dead? Aren't all shinigami dead since, you know, they're ghosts and live in the afterlife?
He's already going to be the Mid-Boss for the arc since Haschwald is going to job to somebody. Pretty sure Ishida joined the Sternritter just so Kubo could pull that "Friends pitted against each other" schtick.
She was born as a ghost so she isn't dead until she freezes her spirit body.
This is fucking elementary.
>Still fucking questioning it
>Not reading the thread and seeing that we've let that topic die because there's been enough bitching
>it could be dust but it's like its clinging to her and is drawn pretty much the way Kubo draws ice freezing over things
>She was born as a ghost
Yes she was always dead and now she didn't die again. I don't think you understand how her ability works.
So the cold numbed her sense of fear?
It's release command is "Za Worldu"
Every fucking time.
Admit it /a/, you can't win against mr. Tite
>implying Bleach threads have a bitching quota
I thought she died as a baby.
>Pretty sure Ishida joined the Sternritter just so Kubo could pull that "Friends pitted against each other" schtick.
And oh the things an Ishida vs Ichigo fight could do now.
Remember that thing about Ichigo feeling the emotions of anyone he crosses blades with?
Ichigo's got an ancient, inherited fragment of Bach in him.
Ishida's got a freshly granted fragment (and maybe also an ancient inherited one, I'm not sure if the update overwrites that).
Ichigo and Ishida both probably have some new unrevealed powers that they'll start throwing at each other.
Somehow I want them to get sucked into Ichigo's inner mindscape. Because Ichigo vs Ishida vs Bach vs Bach vs Bach vs White.

They do, but it's a min-quota (Must Have At Least This Much Bitching), not a max-quota (Must Not Exceed This Much Bitching).

>Whitebach pulls out a fucking Quincy Bow and uses super compressed ceros on the same level as Lanza del Rampago
Except hitsugaya has the most powerful ice zanpaktou.
>Rukia has the strongest Ice-Type Zanpakutou
What about Hitsugaya? He's probably in a lower tier of shit compared to Rukia now
Hyourinmaru is the most powerful ice-type, you sperglord. Just like Ryujin Jakka is the most powerful fire type.
Her's is more temperature based.
Incoming bankai unlocks "rise the heat" ability and she goes full Yama on Nodt.
Actually that's hyorinmaru. Unfortunately.
Stupid or just trolling?
>He was named that before Rukia unlocked her true power
Toushirou has been dethroned by Rukia, and she only has Shikai.
You damn retard!
This chapter was so stupid, I don't even-
I would have preferred this fight to go on "offscreen" rather than have to read through this.
I suppose I forgive Kubo because of this page >>101570078
Maybe it was all just to show off Rukia.
shows it more clearly in the anime
Nigga we just got 3rd level here. >>101573184
Enjoy the ride.
I went on 4chan just to see if anyone tried to justify this BS as they always do. Good to see that this is so fucking retarded that even the 4chan zealots can't defend this shit.
Rukia is more temperature and not really ice.
>i don't understand it therefore it's stupid
All Kubo had to do was make her act in a rigid fashion devoid of emotion, as if she programmed her body to react in a systematic fashion. I could've believed that
But instead she acts and speaks in a conceited manner. Apparently even "dead" people in Bleach are arrogant and can't help but show off
The idea is that fear is based on not wanting to die.
You can't fear death if you're already dead.
Because her having her jobbing level turned down to Absolute Zero via typical shonen training didn't help her at all.

WHAT IF THE ENEMY HEATS UP YOUR BODY NEXT CHAPTER
>Not used to this by now
>Haven reached this point in Bleach.
How would you explain it to the readers then?
Maybe there were no enemies around to hear her explanation.
She's not afraid of her head getting smashed or ceasing to think? Her body doesn't function but she still exists. People don't fear their heart not beating, they fear not existing.
The justification people have is that "she's so overpowered now XDDDDD", yet As Nodt has yet to use Volstadig.
There's no fucking way he jobbed so easily to her when he made Byakuya, a far more competent fighter than her, into his bitch.
maybe not "showing off" but I don't think someone without brain activity would be engaging in the kind of verbal warfare that is part of bleach tradition
>implying Rukia died this chapter
No you don't get it.
There is literally nothing As Nodt can do now that she knows Rukia's ability. So it doesn't really matter if she explains it.
If Rukia was hit by fear she would be As Nodts bitch too, but she found a way to counter it.
>Time still exists even if nothing moves
No. Learn some physics, retard, without movement there can be no time. Think about it, if not a single thing changed anywhere, how can you tell one moment from the next?
no, lacking brain activity is where bleach verbal warfare comes from
It doesn't work like that.
If the author wants to use these explanations as a device to inform the reader, then he has to make sure it doesn't backfire on the character in-universe.
The fact that Mask was able to take advantage of this information that was supposedly intended for the reader is just stupid
>Rukia can kill herself
Most emo super power ever?
They're souls though. Their brain activity might be wherever. They might not even have a brain outside of what they perceive as their pre-death bodies.
Didn't Aizen say something about this?
That masked wrestler guy defeated 2 captains and got jobbed just as hard. If Nodt got back up it'll only be so Rukia can show more absolute zero or go bankai to job Nodt even more.
The poison As Nodt uses is just the catalyst for the fear to get inside of you, gnawing at you.
Volstadig As Nodt is probably the literal embodiment of Fear.
Rukia's power is bad and she should feel bad.
But I guess As Nodt was a no-count anyway so just give it to her and move on.
electrons still teleport around at absolute 0 idort

>humans wear clothes because they're embarrased about being naked and to protect themselves from the cold
>rukia is dead therefore has no shame
>she doesn't care about the cold in the first place
Why isn't rukia naked? Clothes are wholly unecessary at this point and will only serve to sow her down. Also she can distract any straight male opponents with her breasts.
you didn't think this through kubo
>I cannot feel fear because I am dead.
>My sword's real ability is to kill me
I supposed it's fitting that the worst character got the worst ability.
What's retarded is the ability doesn't do jack shit if her opponent wasn't As Nodt.
I mean seriously what's the fucking point?
>I can't control it very well
so Bankai then?
Granted it's like the old Captain Commander's Shikai, so god damned broke it's as powerful as Bankai.
>What's retarded is the ability doesn't do jack shit if her opponent wasn't As Nodt.
Well it's still basically reverse Yamamoto. Shit's cold and makes everything else cold. It just happens to kill her at the same time.
I guess bankai is freezing time or something. Maybe snowman skeletons.
So, like, who's reaping souls while all this shit is going down?
I can't wait to see what Kenpachi's ability is and what bullshit logic Kubo will use to explain it. At this point I might very well buy popcorn to read the next chapter.
>What's retarded is the ability doesn't do jack shit if her opponent wasn't As Nodt.
She can literally freeze people by touching them. All Rukia did is use her ability and found a way to counter As Nodt's power.
The eternal question:
Did bleach really get shit, or did you just grow out of it?
Why doesn' Kubo pull an Oda and have Soul Society recruit human civilians to become gotei 13 captains?
She didn't make herself "more dead"
She's frozen, therefore the fear can pass her body because it's an ice block. It's pretty easy to tell, the problem is the words that they used to say it, yu know, rukia is a shinigammi, she's already dead.
You can excuse it for Yama though, he's supposed to be the end-all be-all badass and when we finally saw his bankai he had extreme control over it.
Speaking of Yama, Rukia's power in this chapter is pretty much the ice version of what he could do.
The other Vizards and probably some other Shinigami.
CAN'T LAY LOW THE KUBO
>She can literally freeze people by touching them.
Wow, that's like, such an unexpected upgrade to her old power and completely sets her apart from every other ice based zanpakuto
She'll surely impress the zanpakuto critics with this
If her cold broke her goggles, it should break her clothes.
Don't get me started on Kubo never following through on
>Rockin Future Seven
>Ass grows bat wings
>"My soul has been frozen ever since his highness gave me this power"
>Thorns turn into various insects with stingers
>"A Frigid Battle... Chapter 577 End"
That's meaningless. In practice, electrons don't teleport, you tard. Their probability clouds stay the same, meaning nothing changes.
Her Zanpaktou is temperature not ice.
B-But it is scientifically proven that people in fear are instinctively hiding into fridges. And after a while they go out like fearlessly.
Someone explain how Bach's powers work.
He gives his abilities to other people by marking them with the abilitie's initial?
What does that even mean? English letters are a human creation and completely arbitrary, how does natural born abilities quantized and somehow fall neatly into 26 different groups and letters?
this is on the same level as pokemon yelling out their pun-based names
>Learn some physics, retard, without movement there can be no time. Think about it, if not a single thing changed anywhere, how can you tell one moment from the next?
You're the one who needs to learn physics, "retard". Absolute zero does not mean "no movement" and it does not mean no time. Absolute zero is simply the lowest entropy state of a system, the system itself can still have kinetic energy. You're confusing things with light, which travels at infinite velocity in its own frame of reference and experiences no time. Absolute zero matter is still matter.
take that back
i'll fight you i swear
When you think about it, it's a clever why to get around it.
>He has the most powerful ice based Zanpaktu
>Rukia has a snow based one, so must be weaker
>Psych, Rukia's Zanpaktu isn't ice, it's temperature.
If Rukia's body was really frozen, why isn't it rigid? She might be able to float around using reishi, but her joints shouldn't move and she should effectively be a porcelain doll.
This isn't rocket science.
Wouldn't it have been easier to have Mayuri turn off the part of the brain that controls fear? Surely lthat's much more straight forward, feasible, and involves less pseudoscience
>That dress is a one shot, that will never be seen again
Why must you make clothes so well Kubo? Why?
He gives them a +1, they level up and it becomes a +2, they die, and he gets a +2 back.
you can fuck rukia in this state but your dick will freeze and rot off afterwards
will you do it
It's most likely just a way his powers manifest so that he is able to understand and control them.
When he first had them it was probably just giving them bits of his soul.
Eventually he refined that into a better method using the letters as a focus.
I dunno, it's nazi magic, I aint gotta explain shit.
Reishi and they are Shinigami not humans i'm sure they can handle it.
Well yeah, but Rukia isn't Mayuri.
All her spirit particles were being individually manipulated by reishi.
language isn't an innate structure, it's imposed.
Think about it like martial arts. Punching isn't necessarily innate compared to, say, clawing or biting, but structuring someone's movements can be useful to bringing out their potential
Someone can't into quantum mechanics.
It's impossible to accurately quantify the change in location of an individual subatomic particle over time.
>Rukia is Snow White now
What if the latin based alphabet comes from Bach's powers and not the other way around?
Why do we care about what faggots outside of /a/ think about the stuff we read? This is a manga read by kids in 6th grade, middle, and high school. Of course you're going to get idiots who think this shit's deep.
But that anon is you replied to has a point. Every now and then we get glimmers of interesting shit that comes off as foreshadowed/thought-out, but nobody on /a/'s going to tout Bleach as anything more than just an entertaining, weekly clusterfuck with fuckable characters.
Huh? If they're being moved individually, that means energy is being introduced, and it's not absolute zero anymore.
I've got something shiny and red for her to bite and two dwarves for her to take care of
Isn't it because he touches them that they die prematurely, usually? I remember something about that, like he could regrow limbs but these people would then die in some strange way
>implying quantum particles are actual physical particles
>trolls spamming One Piece thread while shit like bleach threads go undisturbed
Fuck this shit.
They're being moved by reishi, not kinetic energy. Which is magic, so.
There is only one way to stop rukia now.
No matter the source, it's still kinetic energy. That's like arguing Yammamat's fire wasn't hot because it was made from reishi.
He gives them a part of himself, then when they die, he reabsorbs the part of himself that he lost plus whatever the person had.
the sternritters are a more refined version of this technique.
Everyone is too busy discussing how stupid this chapter is to shitpost.
So you come here to troll because....you're mad? Because that's unfair?
One piece threads are easy targets with how many normalfags they pull in. Grow a thicker skin.
so /a/ is this the end for As Nodt?
Park Ranger is back?
>Not even that killed T-1000
The individual particles aren't interacting with each other. They're suspended in the reishi field that permeates her body, which absorbs all thermal energy. It's the reishi field that's absolute zero, her body is simply the conductor.
How did Rukia know Äs Nödt will bring life and death into the argument and have a speech prepared for it?
I mean there are many ways to explain fear and you don't necessarily have to talk about fear of death.
Fuck off, I want to make her love and have a good old love relationship with her, Rukia it's not the kind of girl i'd want to just fuck.
It kind of makes sense. Fear is an emotion, and emotions are just chemical reactions in the brain.
If everything in your body is frozen, then there's now way for those chemical reactions to occur.
WE SUB ZERO NOW
That's not kubo's explaination though. Kubo's saying that since she's dead she has no sense of self preservation that all evolved living creatures have.
Which basically means that this entire war is really just a training arc for the final boss, whose sending all his troops in to die so that he can get a powerup
She didn't, but no matter how AN planned to use fear being "dead" and immune to fear because, is what Rukia had planned to pull out of her ass.
You guys are putting a lot of thought into this...
Rukia revealed her trump card first, that means she loses.
Unless she has another trump card, ie her bankai, then she has lost this fight.
Isn't Bach kind of like a living Hougyoku? I mean the Hougyoku can grant people around it completely random magic powers and so can Bach.
As far as we know Bach can do everything he can imagine and he just chose 26 arbitrary abilities to hand out.
That wasn't Kubo's explanation though
> Kubo's saying that since she's dead she has no sense of self preservation that all evolved living creatures have.
That wasn't his explanation either. Holy shit guys seriously? The explanation is as simple as Rukia stopped As Nodt's fear poison thing from getting inside her body
It works like this
>Go into a Naruto thread and call it shit.
>Nobody notices since there are 500 posts calling it shit
>Go into One Piece thread and call it shit
>Fans get defensive
>Go into a Bleach thread and call it shit
>Fans: I know right? Isn't it awesome? Let's talk about how Rukia is an absolute zero zombie now
Or she just D-Royed the fuck out of As Nodt.
Why are there two almost fully maxed out threads on the chapter?
It makes explaining shit that much more difficult.
There we go
That's not what he's saying, that's what As Nodt is saying and what mangapanda is saying.
Rukia just said 'I'm dead and cold'.
So what if As Nodt didn't even bring up death? Won't Rukia sound kind of retarded changing the topic of conversation? How did she plan on handling awkward situations such as this?
Add "Something something Aizen" to your post and you have the plot twist for this arc.
>it's an ice version of old man's bankai
>skeletons replaced with frozen zombies
Aizen has had next to no involvement in this arc, yet it's still full of plot twists.
There would only be like 10 of them.
She even says she's just "technically dead". She's basically just cryogenically frozen.
>what if someone said something different, how would they have a snappy reply in return
Are you new to.. well, fiction?
What if Hougyoku is bach's sperm
She's dead, she doesn't feel awkward
>That cover page
I'm gonna need that Rukia doujin where she rapes Ichigo. Stat.
n-no I'm just an aspiring writer and I want to know how to handle situations like this, you know in case my characters don't behave in a convenient fashion
Well, she's dead because she's frozen which goes back to what I was saying.
Would you really prefer a whole page dedicated to a brief lesson on neurons and neurotransmitters?
Sure, but why did they spend so much time explaining how Rukia is dead.
Also, when did the suddenly come back to life? I distinctly remember this manga being about ghosts and the after life. She's been classified as dead for as long as we've known her.
But that one will be the important one.
LoN I highly recommend you read the mangastream translation forget everything you read in the mangapanda translation and just read the mangastream it will make this much simpler for you. Rukia is not dead and As Nodt's fear never got under Rukia's skin thus being ineffective.
Rukia isn't dead
In Bleach Ghosts are alive and are made up of ghost particals.
Try to keep up.
>I distinctly remember this manga being about ghosts and the after life. She's been classified as dead for as long as we've known her.
I know, right? Aren't Quincy supposed to be real live humans, though? Ishida certainly is, and he's not popping out into spirit form to talk to Bach and the other Quincy
ok explain this kubotards, if Rukia's dead how is she having a convincing conservation?
she'd have to be a super genius neuroscientist to program her reishi to do something as complex as this
This is Bleach. Just go with it and picture Kubo sitting at the breakfast table coming up with this shit.
I just realized, technically shinigami are already dead because when humans die they go to spirit realm.
Which means everything Rukia did was completely redundant. Also Byakuya didn't really lose in the first place since he's dead and doesn't know fear
So she revealed to her enemy that her shikai, her only primary means of combat, has 2 critical weaknesses: it has a startup time before taking effect and an extremely limited duration that she can't seem to control.
Which means she's either going to get one of those "I'm right behind you" panels and get taken out before she can get her shikai going, or she's going to run out of time and freeze herself before beating an enemy.
Either way she's doomed.
are there any as nodt doujins?
>cold as ice by foreigner comes on
This is bullshit, Quincies were supposed to be ultra hard to kill like Kirge and now most of the key guys of Vandenreich are dead

For fuck's sake, why can't anyone just play it cool and fuck people up and leave them guessing what the fuck happened until their on death's door, then explain what happened to which the enemy replies "well, fuck" then dies.
1: RUKIA IS NOT DEAD.]
2: Reishi manipulation she explained it in this chapter.
>implying As Nodt lost
This is Bleach anon he isn't dead yet.
shinigami are by definition dead
if not then they are human which doesn't make sense
Its just the beginning.
Well what I meant is she didn't die in this chapter.
there are 26 sternritter. there is definitely not enough time to give them all Serious Fights
Because then this thread would be about how Rukia shouldn't have been able to kill Nodt because just getting stronger doesn't overcome fear.
Nah, they aren't dead. Shinigami are alive.
I can't wait until someone shows up with the placebo bankai, where you can just make up some random ability and the more you convince your opponent that your telling the truth the more effective it'll be
>RUKIA IS NOT DEAD
Aizen has. But that doesn't count.
>WAAAHHH WATER IS WET I DON'T LIKE IT
that's aizen's shikai
Don't sleep till you sleep
Don't die till you die
Don't fear till you fear
YOU GUYS ARE ALL MISSING THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT
Rukia's body can survive absolute zero because it's the power of her zanpakuto, ok...
but we see her goggles freeze and shatter.. so, it stands to reason her clothes will too.. so....
IS RUKIA GONNA BE COMPLETELY NAKED NEXT CHAPTER
That is the worst comparison I've ever seen, kill yourself.
She is dead in a sense that she is supposed to be dead, but isn't because reishi ability. Understand?
Dead and living aren't the only two possibilities. Her body is cryogenically frozen in a state that is in between the two absolutes.
give me a doujin that actually looks like kubo's art?
something like moshamosha
Didn't Gin already do that with his "my bankai is thirteen kilometers long" bluff?
1/10, got me to reply. Go whine about stuff that can't be helped in the Can't Be Helped thread.
This is beyond "vectors" levels of explanation for a power. I can't even call this an asspull, that's just coming up with a bullshit power out of nowhere to get your character out of a situation. What Kubo did here is re-define an accepted basic concept (what death means) to get his character out of a situation.
I don't even know what you'd call that.
>What Kubo did here is re-define an accepted basic concept (what death means) to get his character out of a situation
>I don't even know what you'd call that
It's called getting Kubo'd.
She has no emotions because she's currently incapable of having them.
What she said about death was her just being tongue-in-check.
Did Aizen ever truly use Bankai? Because i'm willing to bet that shit would let him put on sunglasses and literally erase people from the manga with a giant mechanical pencil
>She has no emotions because she's currently incapable of having them
so basically you're saying if you stripped her and started fucking her in front of all of soul society she wouldn't even blush?
I did, hence
>that's what As Nodt is saying and what mangapanda is saying
Wouldn't it just have been a helluva lot easier to have Kenpachi face this guy? And Marylin Manson tries to use his fear power it doesn't work cause Kenny has a deathwish and therefore the fear of dying means jack shit to him?
Seems that would have been the way to go.
>"Haha, jokes on you Ass Knot, I'm too cold to be spooked!"
STOP IT STOP APPLYING REAL LIFE PHYSICS TO MANGA YOU AUTIST. and their in another dimension don't you think abaolute zero works differently there then it does in this dimension, I didn't hear you complain when esparda's were throwing lance's made of fucking lasers with their bare hands at each other.
>She has no emotions because she's currently incapable of having them.
>What she said about death was her just being tongue-in-check.
>Has no emotions
>Still able to be facetious
Oh LoN, what will we do with you?
no, kubo would've done something retarded like Kenpachi's fear is that his opponent is weak and it turns out as nodt that since as nodt can't strike fear into Kenpachi, Kenpachi considers him weak and is therefore afraid which means they'll be embroiled in an eternal struggle
You would need blood circulation to blush and blood circulation would mean that is she warm, so yeah.
But that was explained in this thread and the other one, her ability to feel emotion has currently shut itself down, rendering her 'fearless'.
Too dead to be spooked you mean.
I already read this, that's why I brought it up
Fucking hell Kubo
>Did Aizen ever truly use Bankai?
When were you under the illusion that Aizen's defeat, the fullbringer arc, and this arc weren't an illusion.
>YWACH is Aizen's bankai
>and their in another dimension don't you think abaolute zero works differently there then it does in this dimension
No because this chapter says it works by freezing everything, even the particles that make up the matter of their bodies. Rukia agrees and then says she can move anyway because she's dead. As if that makes any fucking sense at all.
what if her fear is that someone can make her come back to life and feel fear again
Welp, I guess Kubo wins this one.
How do you pronounce As Nodt? Is it like dostedt?
Not many doujin mirror Kubo's style.
I support this idea because
>Rukia activates Sode no Shirayuki
>clothes freeze solid and break apart
>she fights nude, doesn't give a fuck, ice fog barely censoring her naughty bits
>flusters the fuck out of Ichigo
>fight over, Sode no Shirayuki deactivates
>shame comes rushing back
>Rukia blushes and tries to cover herself in embarrassment
I would die from moe
Well you can also say that she was too cool to give enough of fucks and hence just went with the flow.
Either way it stands to reason that dead people don't feel and those who experience bodilu coolinh gradually shut down bodily functions.
Hell I'm even going to throw in a link to a medical article for good measure
what is the source of this?
Men in Black 3
I'm not really complaining, but I find it funny that whenever Ice shota faggot comes up with something new, he's an annoying edgy faggot, but since it's Rukia, it's okay even though it's silly as hell.
But I digress, it's Rukia, so it's okay.
whose power is more absolute? death or fear?
what if As Nodt clashed with Barragan? What would happen
Also what would happen if you tried to defeat As Nodt with his own power?
I WANT TO GET OFF MR. KUBO'S WILD RIDE
She's medically incapable, there are no what ifs here.
It's the villain of Men in Black 3.
He literally keeps that creature inside of his handpussy and shoots spines from it.
I don't even read Bleach but I sure do enjoy reading the threads you people have.
Sometimes on Kuboday, you don't get the full Kubo. You only end up with like 30% or something.
Not this day though. This was the real deal this episode. This was MAXIMUM KUBO.
Prepare for Kubo having a chapter with explanation.
>A reiatsu contained in every truly powerful technique forces its user to describe it with "words" thus making sense of o absurd overpowered techniques, otherwise the user's mind couldn't cope with a paradox of that caliber.
Well there's always that one Kubo made under a pen name/
Come on man everyone on this thread is saying the same but because the fucking series tries so hard itself to explain it with logic and completely fails, the fight falls right on its face.
I found it hilarious how As kept repeating that everything Rukia is explaining is not possible and Rukia just rolls over him not giving a fuck. It was like Kubo predicting everyones reaction on the chapter and going "yeah I don't give a shit, Rukia is my waifu.
That is way out there for what they did with the first 2 MiB movies. I cannot imagine that went over well with parents.
When was the last Maximum Kubo we had? Komamura's grandpa?
so edgy it hurts
How is that edgy.
It's retarded, but it's not edgy.
what if she fears that there are "ifs"?
Kubo style despite being simplistic is actually hard to replicate (unless you just copy it frame by frame like that Simmons guy). I think some art-fag anon did a pretty big post in one of the bleach threads that Kubo is actually legit refined artist.
Ichigo's dick better have some sort of magical insulator.
Well only a couple of pages of it was leaked and had bad quality.
Kubo also got in trouble for it
also apparently most mangakas have done this
I really hope Riruka chan comes back.
No you dummy, she said the reason she's not spooked is because the spook is frozen as soon as it touches her. She's turned the spooks to ice!
Like so many times before there is a perfectly logical explanation here that people completely overlook because they lack the knowledge to see it.
It's been said in this thread like a dozen times already.
SHE CAN'T FEEL FEAR BECAUSE SHE'S TOO COLD TO HAVE FUNCTIONING EMOTIONS.
Oh, and nobody has these pages?
How in the fuck. Who were the characters involved?
Well there has been that idea that his new power is fire-aspected, so...
Ulquiorra and co saying 'She is dead.' wasn't a lie or a misuderstanding, she ended up going absolute zero right then and there, to stop herself from dying, she froze herself to death.
I can't, I don't, oh Kubo take me home.
He can pick up some protips from Finn the Human. He had to figure out how to bone a fire chick once. Like, a girl made of fire.
>did Aizen ever truly use Bankai?
Moshamosha's rukia doujin is good enough kubo for me
I also like this one.
Give us a name or something to search.
That looks nothing like Kubo.
Not even his early works.
Yamamoto and Hitsugaya
basically they're in the public bath together and Yamamoto teaches hitsugaya how to clean under the foreskin
hold on let me find it for you
The worst part is, if anyone ever asked Kubo this, he could say it was foreshadowing.
He's trapped us
>Yamamoto teaches hitsugaya how to clean under the foreskin
Bleach is going to end with ywhach getting all his powers back and then every shinigami captain/rukia/renji/chad/inoue giving ichigo their power in order to combat him
you can cap this
Chosen undead in Bleach setting would be hilarious.
Blocking every single nuke-class attack with a shield.
Slowly parrying multiple "behind you" attacks.
Fat-rolling away from getsugas
Slowly chipping away the health while ignoring all those cool and edgy speeches.
That is the wrong explanation though. She doesnt feel fear because As Nodt's ability didn't get under Rukias skin which made As Nodts ability pointless.
>Rukia defeats Lord Bachwyn
>Ichigo gets to have his showdown with Ishida
>faggot Hitsugaya can fuck off and be useless
Rukia is better off just investing in a good dildo.
>Shinigami lose because they put 10 in Dexterity
How this battle would've carried out...
>All of my loved ones are already dead, I don't fear anything anymore because I'm already dead inside
In One Piece
>fear? what's that? can I eat it?
>long winded pseudoscience explanation
We already know that Ichigo has the same ability as Yhwach, once people start dying off he will suddenly start 'asspulling' new abilities.
Except it won't be an asspull, it'll be a level 4 secret.
Ichigo granted power and he will take it back.
So did Bach give Ichigo a piece of his own ability like he did any other quincy?
if so ichigo got the short end of the stick
>Not 16/10 Chaos +5 Zweihander
Do you even bass?
Well this chapter was one of my all-time favourites. Thank Christ Kubo still knows who best girl is, might get some fun out of this arc yet.
Dark Souls manga by Kubo.
Would you read it
so you're saying Aizen had it wrong, it wasn't the hogyoku that granted Ichigo's friends those abilities, it was Ichigo
Actually very much yes.
>Literally a background character/off being uselss more times than not
If you like Rukia you're literally in denial about your own homosexuality
Aizen was the most unreliable source of information throughout the entire deicide series.
He was wrong on several accounts, that ultimately lead to him underestimatingIchigo and getting destroyed.
Did I say she'd gotten the screentime she deserved over the rest of the gibbering retards Kubo loves to dump on us anywhere in that post?
There's a good reason most of the manga's been half-assed skim bait since Aizen got locked up. And a fair bit of Mexico if I'm honest with myself.
I was waiting for something like this. Bleach has to be the most pretentious pile of garbage out there. All the characters act like arrogant pieces of shit. I'm still amazed how you try to make sense of it though.
where was he wrong? Arrogant yes but I don't think he was ever wrong, feeding the enemy false information doesn't count of course (eg saying Inoue had event canceling powers)
She froze her body so that the poison wouldn't seep and travel through her body, and did it with her own Zanpakuto which allowed her to move, just like Yamamoto is able to exist with his.
Are you saying Rukia makes the manga better? Because she doesn't. They could remove Orihime/Rukia and the manga would be infinitely better off with Ichigo not trying to fight his raging boners all the damned time.
has kubo ever drawn rukia's bare feet?
Whatever floats your boat, nippleclamps
No. I've been waiting for someone to post this for a while now.
The assumption that all Quincies have a piece of Yhwach's soul in them by default is wrong because Yhwach's selection functions independently.
This was proven when Haschwaldth stated that Uryu had a piece of Yhwach's soul etched into him, which in turn implies that he didn't have a piece previously.
No, I'm saying her and a handful of the rest of the original cast gave the manga a reason to exist in the first place.
Kubo's bloated cast of idiots are the ones who should have been removed, noone would have noticed a difference. And Ichigo's been about as interesting as dust for a long goddamn time now.
Well done interjecting Orihime too, you've clearly been practicing.
Haha she WAS dead. She was reall absolute zero dead.
You win mr Kubo. You win.
I'm not lying about Orihime. She and the Orihimefags are partly why the manga is shit, because they seem to think she's the end-all Goddess when she's literally more useless as a fighter than Rukia was.
>B-BUT MAH DENIAL AND HEALING!
She LITERALLY DIDN'T DO SHIT IN DEADMAN'S MEXICO outside of bringing Ichigo back from being White.
So Rukia has a four second ice Za Warudo like Esdese now?
>this frozen time is only mine
ill be in my bunk
Inoue does have event cancelling powers, but they are limited. Aizen was right here.
1 He assumed that the reason why he couldn't feel Ichigo's reiatsu was because Ichigo had lost it. This proved to be his downfall.
2 He believed that he had transcended hollowfication all together when he had in truth just slowed it to a grind halt.
3 He incorrectly deduced that Gin had killed Matsumoto when he returned from their talk.
You missed the point where Nodt tells her it's not enough to freeze and block the projectiles as long as they end up hitting any part of your body.
>bringing Ichigo back from being White.
You are saying like thats a good thing
We could have full hollow Ichigo raging Hueco Mundo and killing everyone parts
He has YHWCH's blood in him by virtue of being a quincy, no? I kind of assumed that the sternritter thing was a slightly different/more involved deal.
Ah jeez thanks Kubo....fucking genius...
Aside from the part where he doesn't like drawing backgrounds, anyway.
His character art is undeniably good, though.
I didn't say it was a good thing. I just noted it as something she did.
If I were Kubo i'd have kept him in White mode and had him rampage across Hueco Mundo with his Quincy blood awakened by that one guy with the fucking blinds eyes.
>Shooting Lanza De Relampagos
>From his dick
Thank you anon
Can we consolidate the threads or is everyone just posting/following both at once?
>Shooiting Cero arrows from his horns while absorbing all them reishi in hueco mundo
Still not sure how flesh and blood biology is related to spirit biology.
If it is such that a child born between two parents carries their spiritual and mortal realm qualities then my theory of White will gain a very solid foothold.
Strangely LM supports the theory of Yhwach's soul fragments being spread to all quincies, while I don't.
I'm sorry but where the fuck does it say that quincies even exist, assuming Ywhach was a real historical figure I mean
At this point we're just waiting for the train wreck to end so we can all go home.
Orihime didn't stop Ichigo, Ulquiorra did.
The only thing worthy of note Orihime did throughout the entire HM was heal Ichigo after Ulquiorra punched a hole in him.
Even then it's arguable that Zangetsu would've saved him eventually.
The most fun ride of all 3.
