Rukia turned from a Shinigami to a Lich.
Wasn't she already dead, though? What's this cannot be considered among the living shit?
She was more dead-er than she was.
it's the smugness is what pisses me off.
Only her body. Her spirit body is still alive.
Until this happened. Lichu.
Now she's DEADER THAN DEAD
>among the living
She was a ghost already, so now she's double dead. Or as we call it in the business "Double D".
People still read this?
Rukia is my Lich Kingu!
Seriously now she is more the ice Counterpart to OMG than shota will ever be.
Also do we have a confirmation that this was her Bankai or not?
Additional does this make her stronger than Renji if it was not her Bankai as Fear was higher ranked than Mask?
Do people like you even read the manga or do you just come into the thread and ask questions based on whatever page is posted in the OP?
>Also do we have a confirmation that this was her Bankai or not?
It definitely wasn't her bankai.
>as Fear was higher ranked than Mask?
Theres no reason to believe the letters mean anything in relation to strength.
>zombie Rukia will never give you an absolute zero kiss
>muh fragile masculinity
>Among the living
Isn't EVERY SHINIGAMI A DEAD SPIRIT THING
>defending shit writing and kubo
>ask a question that's explained in the first 10 chapters of a manga
>get called out for being retarded
>"hurr its a shit manga anyways"
>hurrr what's a rhetorical question?
Might want to go to bed soon kiddo. I don't think your middle school will be closed tomorrow.
>able to freeze enemies to absolute zero
>has only a couple of seconds to do it
wow, it's nothing
Any even half-decent opponent will just dodge her and then she has nothing.
>doesn't respond with a valid reply
And that's how you know when you shut a faggot up.
>replying to shitposter
>shitposter reply with more shit
Wednesday can't come soon enough
>trying this hard
You're just embarrassing yourself now.
'ERE WE GO AGAIN M8S EH? EH EH?
ANOTHER ROUND O' THE OL' PRETENNIN' TA BE IGNANT FOR THE LAFFS N LULZ
1. Rukia's not "dead", her body is simply cryogenically frozen.
>SO SHES DOUBLE-DEAD?
2. Shinigami aren't "dead" to begin with. They're another form of life made up of a different type of matter that shares some similarities with atomic matter but some differences as well. "Dying" as a human merely flips you over into the next state of life. It isn't until you die as a shinigami or spirit-entity that you truly "die".
>HURR DURP BLARF DURR ABSOLUTE ZERO IS IMPOSSUBLE MUH HIGHSCHOOL PHYSICS ETC
Infinite flaming skeletons of everyone ever killed by a sword summoned out of nowhere. Yeah, Rukia's ability is way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way down there on the scale of "what the fuck?"
>HURR DURP BLARF DURR ABSOLUTE ZERO IS IMPOSSUBLE MUH HIGHSCHOOL PHYSICS ETC
There is a difference between inventing magical shit up (like summoning an undead army) and spouting incredibly retarded bullshit.
Using fear as a superpower is ok. Saying that fear doesn't work because every molecule in one's body is stopped due to extreme cold is also ok.
Allowing a person whose every molecule is stooped to do a fast physical attack is incredibly shitty writing even by battle shonnen standarts.
Is that clear for you?
tl;dr: Kubo is a lazy hack when it comes to writing and everybody in /a/ should already be aware of this, regardless of whether they enjoy Bleach or not.
What is enhanced speed training..?
>i'm a huge fucking autist please pay attention to me
>i want to take a huge shit on this comic because i took intro to physics and i think i'm hot shit
That's all I'm hearing.
>Saying that fear doesn't work because every molecule in one's body is stopped due to extreme cold is also ok.
She's a motherfucking ghost, do you think real world physics applies to motherfucking ghosts? I hope she shoots balls of freezing matter out of her vagina just so you can say HURRR IS NOT POSSIBRU some more.
I'm hoping we get some background on her Royal Guard training like we did with Renji, either Pompadour or Cooking Mama might've given her a boost in shunpo/kido.
She was able to directly manipulate the spirit matter that makes up her body at the particle level, aka Reishi manipulation.
Ichigo spews muh lazurs from his sword that turn black and red like the lips of that shitty meme. I second this.
What's so shitty about it? She froze people in pillars of ice, temporarily immobilizing them, and now she uses the temperature of absolute zero to freeze them solid and destroy them.
>because i took intro to physics and i think i'm hot shit
Basic knowledge of how heat works is highschool stuff. But I guess you haven't got that far yet. Enjoy you're children comics.
well, it is meh. If you're frozen solid it's acceptable to say you wouldn't feel any emotions including fear.
I thought lich was an Earth-based elemental type.
How come Rukia doesn't have a forest erupting from her snatch, if she is now a Lich?
We Hyouga now
>If you're frozen solid it's acceptable to say you wouldn't feel any emotions including fear.
If I were frozen solid and, y'know, not dead, I'm pretty sure fear would be the major thing I would be feeling at that point.
Rukia did have an affinity for the spells. Hopefully, the training she went through magnified them greatly, or she customized some to her own accord.
She does have a forest. A pube forest.
You're not a shinigami ice elemental.
That's so cute, you're trying to use the same argument that put you down in the first place.
rukia a shit
>Basic knowledge of how heat works is highschool stuff. But I guess you haven't got that far yet. Enjoy you're children comics.
Come back when you've gotten your masters in Metaphysical Biology and Shinigami Quantum Physics, kid.
THAT BITCH AN ICE LICH
>everyone's whining about Rukia moving in absolute zero
>they accept the existence of shinigami, reishi, reiatsu, zanpakutou, ghosts, pluses, Quincy, etc.
I know right
the literal definition of autism
I'm assuming her affinity for Kido is part of how she could use an advanced Reishi-based body manipulation technique to begin with. Cooking Mama and maybe Skeleton Hands seem like they'd have the most experience in that area.
Except if she can move in absolute zero the fear attack should have worked as well.
rukia is not really a character that needs attention. Fuck, kubo should make her die or byakuya, it's one or the other.
But no, I guess faggotery is what people like these days
>Except if she can move in absolute zero the fear attack should have worked as well.
Incorrect. The fear technique requires a living body (as confirmed by Nodt), where at the time Rukia was basically just a moving corpse.
Rukia is very popular and will continue to get fights, same as Hitsugaya.
Like it or Nodt, Rukia and Byakuya are on the "main character" list for Bleach, not to mention fan popularity. There are certainly more interesting characters but if they were popular you'd be hating on them too.
>implying she isn't doing something similar to ransotengai.
Made me laugh/10
...I don't know why.
She is plain and dull, should take the D of renji and stfu.
Now this try to look badass coming out looks just retarded. Quincy motherfucker had some interesting aspect and she comes like that
"thou have no effect on le me" lelelele
why can't she stay in the kitchen?
this is so fucking bad
She already went to absolute zero, what is she going to do next?
it is fucking obvious the opponent won't die from, it is going to be the same shit as Renji's fight
>hurr i power up
>no, now I power up durr
>nooo, i power up again xD
>rinse and repeat for 10 chapters
Fuck this piece of shit manga.
I don't see what your point is. Whether or not you like her has nothing to do with if shes popular.
Death of characters make the scenario more deep, a story is like life, some dies, some survive, through the death of friend they learn to become stronger, their pain grow but their will to survive and fight as well.
I did NOT liked at all that byakuya could survive after what he said, and how beautifully he was draw. That could have been a nice death. It was the perfect moment
> Meanwhile, an old man dies with a single slash and NOBODY gives a single shit
>>rinse and repeat
if you bleach you don't need to rinse and repeat.
Ever since Shinji vs Aizen I can't fucking stand watching protagonists explain themselves to people they're trying to kill.
I dropped this shit after the Fullbring arc.
The fuck is this even?
Quiet now, let the kids argue about the mechanics of bleach powers.
Besides, everyone knows that sameface will eventually save everyone with his new found soul king powers.
This. She zombified her body, and should she stay in absolute zero for 4 seconds, she would incapacitate herself by being frozen. it's the polar opposite of zanka no tachi.
It's a weekly Shounen manga and like it or not Kubo needs pull characters to keep ratings high.
>Meanwhile, an old man dies with a single slash and NOBODY gives a single shit
>Death of characters make the scenario more deep, ect.
Contradicting yourself or just being an ass?
Did you know that not being able to distinguish between different faces is a sign of autism?
Does this make her a better ice fighter then Toshiro? Because admittedly outside of PIS on his enemies parts, he's pretty shit.
No, people are overreacting because its Ruki/a/. She hasn't done nearly enough yet to determine that. Plus, Hitsugaya is younger than her.
Old man died but it was not enough pictured. The death was not shown as intense as it could have been.
Meanwhile byakuya, blood everywhere, covered and painting the wall, blood dripping on his mouth. It was perfectly designed. AND he did not die. What the heck..
I wanted to show the contrast of how byakuya's death could have added a lot more to the scenario, and how badly old man death was shown.
Kubo is a terrible writer. Fucking god awful. But to be fair, bleach was my first Chinese cartoon. Is the manga any better than the anime?
Since when were you under the impression that Bleach made sense?
Yes, the manga is a lot better than the anime.
Toshiro still has a lot of room for growth, will likely be Yamamoto tier eventually, plus his Ice Flower Prison has a 99.9% chance of incapacitating almost any opponent. Rukia might have a slight advantage now but they're on two very different levels of potential.
Well, that depends. Do you find backgrounds distracting?
>getting a straightforward answer from /a/
You're a gentlemen and a scholar sir.
Yama's death was great, and anyone in their right minds already knew Byakuya wasn't going to die.
To be honest, a picturesque sequence like the one you described for Byakuya would be ill-fitting of a character like Yamamoto, who lived and died as a soldier does, and between the two I greatly preferred to see Yamamoto die with sword in hand and feet on the ground.
it was brutal, i admit, but not making byakuya die also made it unfair to me, like i said, it was the perfect timing. He had shitblood all over him, his last words would have been so deep.
Protect soul society.
At the very end, he died without beeing pretencious, but with great honor
> LOL NOPE
what a waste
Byakuya is too much of a fan favorite to actually kill off, plus there were plenty of other deaths happening.
If you hate any resemblance of good art, good story, good characters then sure, it is a great manga.
So many opinions...
>samefagging to try and troll
Makes me sad.
To be honest, the wounds sustained by Byakuya were certainly substantial but not quite mortal by Bleach standards (head intact, ect). However it was certainly a symbolic defeat to have one of the most esteemed Captains of Kuchiki blood spilled against the walls of Soul Society definitely set the tone for what was to come. However I would still love to see Byakuya come back from this loss as a sort of "redemption", which honestly could result in a much-needed turn of character for Byakuya. Complain about fan-favoratism all you want, but I personally am reserving judgement til the climax.
