Any spoilers yet?
are you new bleach/naruto spoilers are out hours within the chapter release.
And I had Fumiko Orikasa playing as I came on this thread.
shes perfect isnt she?
10/10 did waifu.
Bleach general then? how will he Kubo us this week?
>daily reminder that best girl will win
Yeah, it's shit.
Why are you cunts so obsessed with that midget ?
Serious question here m80s
Ch. 568 "Aizen was not kill"
Starts off with Rukia
"Who was sword?"
Aizen appears, wearing new hollow armor
(three pages dedicated to showing aizen in new armor)
ends with Ichigo getting bad feeling, and suddenly someone is behind him in last panel
Source: My dad works at the Kubo company
Does your Dad know what was going to happen in Zombie Powder had it continued?
Kubo never planned to continue Zombie Powder; he intentionally started it without intending to finish it so he would seem like a mysterious artist.
if you have anymore questions about Kubo, just ask me. My dad is Kubo's chief assistant at the Kubo Company.
You now realize that we'll never see Kenpachi again because he's lost in the underground prison forever
I foresee a moment where he just blasts up to the surface because he was tired of looking for the exit.
Don't know about that, but for the longest time reading Bleach along with a fast paced manga like UQ Holder makes reading every new Bleach chapter something akin to torture.
then why are you here fagging up the thread?
Calm down faggot, I still read Bleach. It's a guilty pleasure.
Just.. The pacing.
>mfw we get another boring "fight" chapter this week
Please no more
Maybe Rukia will finish this fight in one blow?
I get what you mean. I have no shame in saying Bleach is my favorite manga, but in December One Piece had all these chapters with shit going on, like Law getting kidnapped, Sabo being alive, Big Mom's ship appearing. Bleach at that time, was just the Mask de Masque fight.
I'm so tired of watching the Gotei 13 fight. We had years of that already, I didn't need more.
please dont compare Bleach to that childish shit
its a shonen manga. what the fuck do you expect?
Granted the only ones left to fight are the ones we haven't seen use Bankai yet; Shunsui, Ukitake, ect. Past that we have Kisuke, Isshin, Yoruichi, and the Royal Guard.
OTHER characters fighting.
It's not that mysterious is it?
>Bleach is my favorite manga
What else do you want you fucking faggot? Okay let's see you come up with something you piece of shit!
I wish Kubo had just skipped to them.
I have this horrible feeling that he's going to end up not even showing the Zero Squad fighting.
It's the last arc and he's trying to give everyone at least a bit of panel time it seems; I know what you mean about the Zero Squad, I'm sure we'll get a taste of their power in battle but no full-blown fights unless they completely turn on the Captains for some reason.
>unless they completely turn on the Captains for some reason.
Here's hoping that Ichigo decides that the Spirit King need to go.
faggots don't understand that we as a /a/nime lovers have to go to kubo with bleach as care. Can't ask for the actions without having some boredom. Unbelievable that people are not liking bleach because it fight too long and it will be new to anime world as new best top anime. long live kubo
>Forgetting about Aizen, who Kubo said still has a very major role in the manga at the last press conference.
Major role yes, but as far as combat is concerned I think there's little for him to achieve than he already had in Deicide.
>Using kyouka suigetsu with no arms
Aww come on there has to be more trolling.
It's all just redundant at this point; if I had to guess he'll become the Lord Genome of Bleach in the sense that he'll either provide SS with info to help them defeat Bach, or come back as a last minute villain before being one-shotted by the Soul King.
>Last minute villain
Have you even paid attention to his story arch? Nooope, he's coming back as the anti hero.
we still need his back story.
Yeah he is 1 of 6 confirmed people to have personally SEEN the soul king.
and his zanpaktou is a getsu
That's because Isshin and Aizen are brothers. Aha! Aizen is the illegitimate child of you know who. Aizen and Isshin treat each other like old friends, no formalities or anything.
Its shitpost time
Thank you moot.
Do we not have enough antiheroes in Bleach?
Exactly, he'll get some background in regards to the Soul King but we won't be seeing anything close to Butterflyzen level fighting.
Butterflyzen and final getsuga tensho power levels are over.
Aizen is still immortal though.
Lab member is your site still up
I'm sure the Soul King could kill Aizen if he really wanted to; it would also make for the perfect jobbing to hype up the final boss.
MY FUCKING DICK
HER ASS IS FUCKING IMPECCABLE
THAT BOOTY, SWEET JESUS
>Aizen and Isshin treat each other like old friends, no formalities or anything.
You really think Aizen is currently as strong as the single most powerful known being in the Bleachverse?
>Aizen is the illegitimate child of you know who
I don't know who.
If the RG could kill Aizen, or the soul king. They would have.
Except the latest flashback, where Aizen barely recognized Isshin and handicapped him so that Whitey could finish him off.
Why is this a surprise? They were both Captains during the same time period, shouldn't it be obvious they knew each other?
But that's wrong; the Soul King only woke up recently, and the Royal Guard clearly don't give a fuck about the Gotei 13 since their only job is to guard the Soul Palace. They even considered him the lesser of two evils compared to Ywach.
No they didn't, they just said Yhwach is pure evil. We have known since deicide that Aizen isn't pure evil.
>Except the latest flashback, where Aizen barely recognized Isshin
Barely recognized? I don't remember that. It seemed more like he was surprised that Isshing would be there.
I think he means Yama.
Also even I've considered that Yama was a noble, or that he and the King have familial ties.
But in such a case I doubt Yama is the actual father, more like a forefather and to all the great noble clans.
Provided Yama himself wasn't one of the two unrevealed GNH, it's not out of the blue that someone of his power and status had several wives.
I mean, Yhwach is no different.
Do you think this man settled with one woman?
Hence "the lesser evil"...
No, they said that Aizen was pure evil, but Yhwach was eviler.
This and that Aizen is too powerful not to be from a great noble house.
He didn't even use his name. They are not close, nothing suggests they ever were more than co-captains.
>More than co-captains
>Aizen not spying and getting to know every captain in the gotei including him watching the captain commander take a shit and take showers.
Which being Aizen's co-captain was.
>Do you think this man settled with one woman?
Yhwach? Yes. Hence Toofsy, I believe.
Yama? No women. He married the war and didn't take the divorce too well.
>Which what being Aizen's co-captain was.
I can't get over how much that looks like Ichigo and Rukia's kid.
Probably is. Sounds like Kubo, is Kubo.
Just as according to keikaku.
He just looks like Ichigo to be honest, the similarities to Rukia are purely due to hair style.
Same eyebrows. Relatively same facial structure Why do you think Kubo redesigned her so much.
He's obviously having an in depth chat with his sword. Then after that's all done he'll either just walk out or blow a fuck off hole and fly out. And of course the mandatory flashbacks to what the sword said etc
Not really, not whatsoever. Rukia's are much longer where TZ are barely even eyebrows.
>Relatively same facial structure
Almost like they were draw by the same person, nice observation
Aside from the hideous wing growths that is just gorgeous. I hope that Kubo is making her a character again.
Post a picture of rukia. Same eyebrows.
You don't know much about anatomy do you?
Burden of proof isn't on me, son.
Compared to >>101918981
the eyebrows look almost nothing alike, besides the fact they're drawn by Kubo. At least not enough to extrapolate "these two characters are definitely related".
Not wing growths, just scapulas.
Do Yhwach's eyes change color when he's the father?
This is important.
You seriously are retarded
Not enough color pages.
I want to know if Yhwach's eyes turn blue under certain occasions.
So far only Ichigo's eyes have been shown to frequently change color, for the most part they change to blue when he channels OMZ, and golden yellow when he partially hollowfies.
But under one, or possibly two occasions he was shown with red eyes like Yhwach and Yhwach himself was shown with blue eyes when he appeared as Tense Zangetsu.
If Yhwach's eyes also change color depending on which mode he's in then that explains Ichigo's trait.
Do you have any pictures showing all these different eye colors?
I'm pretty sure blue comes from simple reiatsu emission.
No, but it won't be hard to find them.
That trait has so far been unique to Ichigo.
Possibly red from the mask
>That trait has so far been unique to Ichigo.
In manga, or anime only? I can't seem to recall color manga page with blue eyes.
>more Rukia fearless
Oh look, another shitty chapter on the horizon.
Give Ichigo already.
Isn't golden-brown his normal eye color?
>Give Ichigo already.
Screw that, I wanna see Ukitake.
Was more of a blueish sheen, but it appears to have just been overfiltering and certainly not a common occurence.
Red is from Mugetsu.
Another interesting observation, Ichigo's reiatsu can also become yellow.
So we have brown, and then a golden-yellow color that are pretty much just "Visard eyes". So two eye colors total.
8pic 8 m8m8 m8
screencap this shit:
> as nodt goes level 2 quincy
> removes mask
> mouth looks like a vagina with teeth
Aizen owning everyone on everyside would make my day.
He knew that with a wound Isshinn couldn't go bankai, because his bankai is "heavy" on his body
So he knew a lot about Isshin, considering a lot of Lieutnants, captains don't even know the power of others. cf : Shinji hiding his shikai for 200 years
No faggot !
HItsugaya also have this trait !
Remember his fight against Gin in the anime, before going shikai for the first time his eye clearly have the blue glow you fag
Aizen gets up from his chair
I meant as a person. I can know every little "professional" thing about somebody but such "file data" doesn't suggest I'm related to him/her by blood.
Aizen had plenty dossiers, but no actual friends or family as far as we know, or - in my opinion - could safely assume.
These just look like stylized brown to me.
I think the second one he was referring to the reiatsu? Not that it really matters outside the anime, I felt in the manga it was always less spectrum-based and much more density-based.
Oh, I thought that was just speedlines.
I may be bad at this.
I wonder what changes Kubo would make to the story if he wrote Fist of the North Star.
>Deicide 27 [True End ReMiX]
>Since when were you under the impression you weren't already dead?
1. why does a shinigami die? arent they already dead
2. rukias power is based on cooling molecules. isnt spirit world made of spirit stuff
Its just LoN being LoN, don't take it too seriously.
Second is yellow reiatsu,
Imagine how much better Bleach would be if Ichigo acted like Kenshiro.
That may be fan colored LoN. Are you just picking the most retarded shit just to get people to fuck with you?
Ok I was just wondering. I apologize for the harsh words.
I can never tell with you..I swear sometime you are a sneaky troll
not that guy but I hadn't seen 162. holy shit, Bleach must have been fucking insanely popular to get that treatment
>rukia wearing Zangetsu
Was this filler? bretty cool
Yes Ep 317 or 318 not sure which
The legend continues
Still better writing than Kubo.
After this bullshit, really?
No, no really, stop...
Not all of us are sperglords like you.
Someday your level will increase
May kubo be with you
I used to love Bleach, but we all know it should have ended with Aizen
I use to agree with you on this untill we learn more about Ichigo's origin. I still enjoy it sucks you don't. If you don't like it any more then why are you here?
Lab member made it not me
>I used to love Bleach but
Oh look, it's another one of you guys.
>untill we learn more about Ichigo's origin
All Kubo has done is mash every faction together and call it a MC.
Oh look your post contributed absolutely nothing.
get used to it, Bleach has managed to disappoint a lot of its older fans over the years, so there are a lot of 'you guys'.
>All Kubo has done is mash every faction together and call it a MC.
Actually its the exact opposite of this; Ichigo has always been factionless. Every other faction ends up joining with Ichigo.
>I hate Bleach
>where should I go?
>some other anime thread?
>no I'll go to the Bleach thread and bitch about how much I hate Bleach!
For what porpoise?
HALF SHINIGAMI HALF HUMAN HALF QUINCY HALF HOLLOW HALF ALIVE HALF DEAD HALF VIZARD HALF FULLBURGER HALF SPIRITKING HALF KEIKAKU
Ever considered "not" shitposting? Or do you think ironic shitposting makes it okay?
Yeah that would be true if it was not foreshadow multiple times since SS. It was even hinted that what we saw of Mikasa's death was false but you being as dense as you are most likely don't remember where these foreshadows where and how they relate
>Oh look your post contributed absolutely nothing.
Just like your post.
Originally he was supposed to be, sure. But Kubo destroyed that by adding "plot twists" each arc to power Ichigo up.
>What is considered positive contribution?
>Our definition of "positive contribution" is the submission of substantial, helpful, friendly, and humorous posts to the boards, along with the uploading of quality images and files.
Notice the humorous part?
Anyone can look back at a story and call something foreshadowing. That doesn't mean it's anything except plot-holes and shitty writing. Even if it is, that doesn't mean it's good.
Stop using words you don't understand.
>Originally he was supposed to be, sure.
No, that's literally what's happening right now, and whats been happening since post SS.
>But Kubo destroyed that by adding "plot twists" each arc to power Ichigo up.
What exactly does this have to do with my previous point? Ichigo has always been strong and it's the MC's duty to get stronger, what else were you expecting?
>Notice the humorous part?
All caps posting stopped being humorous after my first day on the internet.
>I don't like it so it's shit
Every time. Try an actual criticism instead of general whining and bitching?
You don't understand half the words (not to mention the subject) you said in that sentence do you?
3/10 see me after class
the sword isnt parallel with the hilt
>The shape of the sword is not even complete
Kubo you subtle motherfucker.
>What exactly does this have to do with my previous point?
>Ichigo isn't strong enough
>Urahara tells him he's part X
>Ichigo powers up
Being part of every group doesn't make you independent it just makes you part of every group.
Not my scan, I have the redrawn version in my dying HDD.
its not shitposting
seriously this happened when Ichigo's quincy 'reveal' was done and there was a substantial part of a thread dedicated to people parodying that
Congrats you are as dense as the landwhale.
He just trying to troll guys he already been disproved just ignore him from here on out. Lurk more and watch LoN if you want to troll the bleach threads
>he already been disproved
How so? Please tell me.
put it in your site
With love, an anon that visits your site daily hoping to see new things..
Proof that there was foreshadowing
Ichigo is a Shinigami, but he's not part of the Gotei 13. The "substitute" position was a farce to begin with; their goal was always to watch Ichigo in case he became to powerful. Yet when it came to Aizen, Soul Society protected him because he had proven himself to them. They joined his team, he never joined theirs. Same goes for the Visard, is being hinted at with the Arrancar and Fullbringers, and if Uryu is in charge the Quincy would join him as well. It has nothing to do with his powers, its actual fucking storytelling, and you should see where it's going in regards to the Soul King who likely divided all these factions up to begin with.
Viz Jump subscriber here. You guys want me to post Viz's translation of the latest chapter?
Sure it could clear up the absolute zero thing
I wish Rukia would "accidentally" absolute zero freeze Orihime and then just stash her frozen statue corpse in a cave in the arctic so she would never have to explain it to Ichigo.
Alright, gimme a few minutes...
I did the first time you asked, but as I'm not on my PC I couldn't trigger the "newest" script. It's in the Reactions though, as Fear Intensifies.
Retconing not foreshadowing.
>he's not a part of any group except for that group he's part of that was just a farce
>there were no lies
So who told him the name?
Is that what we're doing now? Just straight-up trolling?
Remember Bach and Zangetsu were once one
>So who told him the name?
OMZ and Zangetsu were fused.
A-are you a narutard?
That what he been doing all along
Damn how do you live day by day with that serious case of the retard?
No, just trying to get people to acknowledge the fact that just because an author decides to say something doesn't mean it was planned for. The story is where it is because it's how Kubo makes a living, not because he's been planning it for 10 years. Stories evolve, but sometimes it's for the worse.
That's just retconing and you know it. Either way it invalidated the whole idea behind the "he never lied" page.
Remember Bach and Zangetsu were once one get your facts together before you try and disprove people. It seems to me you have a vague memory of bleach
Yeah basically everyday I visit the 'newest' page (its even in the most visited thumbnails in Chrome)
Very bored guy, I know
As Nodt will be revived by the Vollstandig.
Rukia uses a new super powerful move and kill As Nodt for good.
Unless she actually stays frozen and somebody else finishes off the Fear.
>That's just retconing and you know it
We were told they were one the 2nd or 3rd time OMZ showed up. Also it not retconing if it at a early point in the story you retard
Viz Jump subscriber here. Ok, as requested by >>101927248 I'm posting Viz's translation of the latest chapter. Hopefully this should clear up any confusion regarding Rukia's absolute zero powers. But hey, sure as hell beats waterpanda and niggastream right?
Stop talking to this guy he has no idea what he is talking about and it shows
That picture is from after the first time Ichigo had access to his hollow powers.
rukia's old powers did use ice so her real shikai isn't quite consistent.
She was shown freezing her surroundings by touch in Mexico.
Remember the after math of this? When her bother came to that room the whole room was almost frozen including her body. It kinda is consistent
>tfw Viz won't use the spread in their back cover
Yeah but her dances are all ice based attacks.
And that's it. Enjoy!
We Kelvin now.
Like she said the blade is used as a extension for the ability
Doesn't explain the water.
Yes. If she just freezes her body and extends the aura of cold where one the water come from?
You can't possibly be this retarded...
Use your head. You can easily figure it out. It's not rocket science.
>It's HIS dong
Explain. This isnt a pissing contest.
He thinks there's enough water vapor in air to freeze. There's not.
But oxygen itself can freeze.
Nobody feels like explaining shit to you. You won't change your opinion anyways and you're not going to convince anybody here of your opinion either so you might as well just fuck off.
What does ice turn into when it melts?
Bags of sand.
What's probably going to happen in this chapter:
Ass Knot uses Vollstandig, Rukia is surprised.
He actually died by that attack, his crumbling body has taken control by itself and the wings look like spider legs.
His corpse explodes and covers Rukia with the fear poison.
Rukia is shaken by it, but thinks about Byakuya and Ichigo arriving soon, so there's no reason to be afraid of anything anymore.
Scene switches to something unexpected.
This would be okay.
Air isn't dense enough to freeze like Rukia's attacks do. If her power was always cold her attacks would have always looked as they do now.
I know, but it's a manga
Can someone link me to the Bleach chapter with the prologue to chapter 1 and the chapter with Aizen, Histugaya and Momo watching fireworks?
Who's going to win? I think Rukia might lose this one, even though I want her to win it badly.
It's not one of the numbered chapters, it's one of the negatives I think.
I don't really see how Bleach can go anywhere after Aizen
Didn't Aizen end up becoming something similar to a god? How do you have a story that progresses after the MC beats a god
with another god, bleach has been nothing but god battles anyway
ywvh is a major deity in hebrew i think
The Soul King.
He was trying to kill "god" (spirit king) for some unknown reason. He tired to become a transcendence bring that went past the limits of Soul Reapers and Hollows he just did it incorrectly. This is just my option but from his appearance was leaning towards the hollow side. Now remember how Ichigo was teh only one who could sense Azien and no else could once he started the transformation process? Ichigo is the closest thing we have seen being a natural transcendence.
You have a guy who spreads fragments of his soul and absorbs the powers of others when they die, his power is constantly sealed, yet he killed Yama.
Yhwach will easily surpass Aizen.
Yahweh is THE God of the jews. We've been over this before, so take notes this time.
Yhwh, or Yahweh is the unspoken name of the Abrahamic God and by extension the God of the Christians and Muslims.
Yahweh was a originally a war God, one God among several in the Semitic pantheon, but over time he became the only one they were allowed to worship, though the others were still acknowledge they were demoted to 'false Gods'.
In the relevant holy scriptures Yahweh actively undermines other Gods, but he never denies their existence.
How that came to be is unclear.
Yhwach is the Bleach version of Yahweh, he symbolizes God as god of war, which is an insanely ballsy move of Kubo considering his track record with jews.
Though Yhwach didn't live in the desert, he lived some place where there was snow and pine trees.
Forgot to add that I don't think he was trying to become a god. He just knew he would need a shit ton of knowledge and power to challenge the royal guard. I don't know if the soul king itself can fight. Really all we know about is that it has to exist or the universe will die.
Anyone update the chapter list with Renji or the Superstar yet?
Also Yoruichi pinups when?
Aren't Zanpaktou's heavy as shit for anyone but their wielder?
FUCK THE STORY
She looks a little tired
Are they? I totally forgot that.
I've heard that too.
At least that Zanpakuto was near weightless to the owner.
Was in regards to Ichigos stupid big butcherknife I think.
They are unwieldy to everyone but their owner. Kubo used Renji as an example and in his case, another person using Zabimaru would find the shape too awkward to use correctly, it would be as heavy as a sword that size, and of course they couldn't use its ability, but to Renji it would feel like a sword should because it's his own.
I thought that was Soul Eater
罗罗布从冰中挣脱 出现完圣体 样子非常惊悚 有小乌一样的泪痕 还是虚嘴
Rukia's body temperature slowly rises.
Aes breaks free of the ice and activates Vollstaendig. It's very scary looking, with black teardrops on his face and a hole for his mouth
A turbaned Byakuya makes his debut.
Where is everybody?
Bullshit. Kubo pls no.
Deal with it.
Just like Renji killed the guy who KOd him in the first invasion and now Byakuya is back to destroy the guy who nearly killed him.
>Rukia being saved by Byakuya
Please no. Her last straight up victory was against D. Roy for God's sake.
She beat Aaaroneiriorara Aardvark
Isn't this infographic wrong?
Here he clearly claims to be tensa zangetsu.
When I posted that, I was thinking about fights that didn't end up with her critically injured, but I shouldn't count out her victory over Mr. "I have 33,650 abilities but I'll only use one" because she almost died.
>Byakuya beats Ichigo down to Seireitei
seems unlikely. all indications are that he should be the last one to leave.
HE IS BACK! They are both Zangestu we learned this back in ss arc. Stop trying to start shit cause no matter what we tell you your opion is never going to change and you can't disprove us either just fuck off
Give ya 4/10 for effort
Back? I almost never post. I'm genuinely curious since that infographic would be correct if it weren't for this one page. I think the manga does mention that the only lie was his name, though. I'll have to dig that page up.
That never counts for a certain subset of Bleach readers.
Did you even read it? Did you fail to see the foreshadowing it pointed out? If not open your eyes then read the chapter were Ichigo reforges his blade. Chapter is call The blade is me.
Even though OMZ is batch from a thousand years ago he still did not lie that Him and the Hollow were once one. Even the hollow says they were once one. Its not that hard to understand really? Though I do put forth a effort when I read.
He's not 'tensa zangetsu', he's the form that comes before tensa zangetsu.
By Hollow I mean Zangestu well they both are Zangestu
No, the only thing I was disputing was that he never lied to ichigo. He clearly does lie about his name and that alone. He even states it outright on this page.
And remember Ichigo ends up telling him how he thinks they are both Zangetsu and then ask him if he is ok with that. He does not answer Ichigo. In the end though Ichigo comes to the conclusion That both of them are him and accepts them both. Saying how he won't ask for his help and won't tell him to get out of his way and saying at the end he will fight with his own strength from now on
god damn it, why the fuck is byakuya showing up? let rukia and the weirdo fight
This should clear it up
I know that he's not tensa zangetsu, he clearly just lied to ichigo in that scene, which he later admits in the flashback. My understanding is that "omz" is actually just a representation of his quincy powers that looks like bach. His hollow and shinigami powers are manifested as hichigo.
When I say zangetsu I was in reference before the reforging and representing only his shinigami/hollow power. After the reforging then yes they're both zangetsus.
>Ichigo never called White by his real name even once
>Now he's forever stapled to the guy who oppressed him unable to ever reach his own true potential or bond with his master
Ok you seem to understand it
Am I the only one who doesn't like the designs at all?
Cool. My only issue with that infographic is that it tries to use the fact that OMZ never states his name as a form of evidence when he in fact does state his name once and later even says he lied about his name to ichigo. Yes NOW they are both zangetsu, but before this quincy war, OMZ lied about his identity.
Of course he is part of the biggest part of SS I doubt he would want to tell Ichigo in the first place
Cause we did not know he lied untill Ichigo found out
>He is the biggest enemy to SS
>can't even kill one enemy out of the gate
Rukia confirmed for only being useful in receiving Ichigo's holy seed.
>The force of his orgasm is so powerful it rips her appart
>"Th-there was no royal guard training for THIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSS!"
and then she dies
big sword is alright i guess, though i prefer shikai zangetsu from the fullbring arc to now. i dont like the babby sword
Absolute zero porn when
Thinking Rukia can beat a stern ritter with just shikai.
There's been 1 bleach doujin past year and yaoi at that.
>Still waiting on Soi-Fong/Yoruichi lesbian h-books that don't turn into futa or just dude orgies
>A Arabian Style man appears
I bet there's loads, but it doesn't get scanned because It's not good.
I hope when Bleach ends that Kubo becomes a fashion designer with his own line of clothing.
Theres that futa one
Bankai we will see before the manga ends
Byakuya's grandfather (flashback)
The entire Royal Guard
so what excuse will kubo use to give byakuya a powerup or change his bankai? nigga had his bankai for a long time and has mastered it already.
I want to see Nemu and Nanao's shikais.
Kubo did say though that he had designed the RG Bankais.
where was this said please?
Nuburo is out.
As if that means jack shit, I bet he had Yamamoto Bankai since day 1.
aaaaaany minute now...
One Piece will be released before Bleach, just like last week, and the week before that, and the week before that.
ruh roh wan pissu is on break
Then Waterpanda will wait until 4am just to fuck with us, like that other week when One Piece was on a break.
but niggerstream dropped their 1 hour after panda policy so it doesn't matter
chapter is out
do chinese scans release before or after english scans?
CHAPTER IS OUT!
fuck you Kubo
Haha, I know how this song and dance works. Can't fool me.
no seriously its out
Yachiru Unohana confirmed not kill.
TATER TOT JESUS
>Flashback of Orihime with black empty eyes
It's really disappointing to see Rukia get shot down when she was so great last chapter.
>he turns into Marilyn Manson
>Opponent who was frozen solid at the end of chapter breaks out and is fine
>Byakuya has to save the day
I'm going to need the chapterlist updated for this
its stupid. this better turn into byakuya and rukia tag teaming this guy. if its some damsel in distress then im going to be really disappointed in kubo
so who was tataru forasu?
What the hell's going on in Rukia's vision here?
Byakuya and Ichigo being there is predictable, but WTF is up with Orihime? Especially her black, empty eyeholes?
RUKIA STILL NEEDS HER ASSED SAVED
WHEN WILL RUKIA BECOME A CHARACTER WHO CAN DO ANYTHING AT ALL WITHOUT SOMEBODY ELSE HOLDING HER HAND? NEVER
Byakuya vs Zommari V2
Kubo a shit.
he should stick designing clothes and doujins.
She'll never win another 1 on 1 fight will she?
She fights less than Renji, but she's what 1 for 30 now?
With all that jobbing she's the most employable woman in soul society.
Rukia cannot feel fear anymore they said.
She has conquered fear through past experience they said.
Two whole threads and an entire day of maximum autism from just one chapter.
is this MGS3
theres still some hope. maybe this nigga is going to be so strong that byakuya and rukia gotta work together to beat him. that would be pretty cool
>Byakuya scolds Rukia for panicing

fear of orihime stealing ichigo from her
No lie though.
Kubo did a damn good job of designing As Nodt's volstandig, shit's scary.
Expected it's not possible for Rukia to just beat a Quincy in just her Shikai.
ha, as if.
more like fear of breaking Orihime's heart.

God fucking damn you Kubo, I'm so mad.
mfw Rukia never won a fight without fucking up somehow and never will.
GG no re enjoy Orihime master race
NO, IT WOULDN'T
RUKIA GOING THROUGH SPECIAL TRAINING WITH THE ROYAL GUARD AND FULLY REALIZING HER POWER SO SHE CAN FUCKING
- ASSIST -
HER BROTHER IN A FIGHT IS THE DUMBEST FUCKING THING
>Expected it's not possible for Rukia to just beat a Quincy in just her Shikai.
This. It would be insane if she did. Only Yamamoto can do that, and probably not to a Vollstandig-using one, either.
This is fucking stupid.
Why do you people assume she would win in SHIKAI?
Even Renji needed bankai to win. It actually would have been MORE of an asspull if she did win.
>there are people that actually expected Shikai Rukia to defeat Vollstandig As Nodt
Rukia is strong, but she still can't do anything about fear. inb4 assblasted Rukiafags.
about time someone penetrates her
i dunno. if byakuya gets his shit kicked and is obviously in need of help then whats wrong?
We were hoping that she'd use Bankai.
a scythe? that really wouldn't be so bad. you can call it a call out to that one Bleach movie, which also called out on Kubo's initial idea to have Rukia be the only shinigami in the series wielding a scythe, whereas every else wielded guns.
the Bankai, though, i'd be mad as well.
>entire war arc has setup that shinigami need bankai to fight sternritter
>people get upset when Rukia, with only a shikai, gets demolished by sternritter using volstandig
Rukiafags really are the worst
It's still possible that she does. I don't see how that's out of the question yet.
Okay, I can live with that.
Byakuya fights, loses, Rukia comes back with Bankai or something to win is totally fine.
But, if anything else hapepns - if this fight isn't won by Rukia, by herself - then it's never fucking happening. Rukia as a character is forever useless. There's no fucking point to having her power up, she may only dream of being as useful in a fight as Renji in terms of how fucking jobbed she is.
This is why you don't let people with estrogen on the front lines.
Get your shit together Soul Society.
Yeah, unlike previous times that Rukia's gotten saved, she's not injured or out of action yet. Just a bit shaken up.
Freezing never works in this manga, holy shit.
D-Roy is gonna pop up any fucking day now, alive and well.
To be clear, I'm not upset at Rukia not winning the fight with one blow.
I'm fucking furious that fucking Byakuya has to fucking come to save her fucking ass.
His honor was at stake here, since this is the man who shamed him.
w we might get a Kuchiki family tag-team? right? kubo will surely deliver....
Still better than Ichigo
This is what I'm hoping for.
this is what im talking about. would also reinforce how strong the sternritter are. how stupid would it be if byakuya just blasts this nigga with his bankai?
>fujoshi are the main audience of the manga
>kubo can't get rid of byakuya and hitsugay for good
Seeing as she and Orihime are friends I'd say that she is there because she is afraid of Orihime having unspecified bad stuff happening to her. The thing you really should be surprised at is Renji not being there.
>hang out with someone since childhood
>meet some random guy who says he is her brother now
>treats you indifferently
>sometime later meet some other guy
>chill with him for a couple of weeks
>these people have more importance than the guy you've known for over a much longer time
>it's been a chapter already and Kubo has already forgotten renji again
Doesn't solve the fundamental problem that Rukia will never, ever, EVER, fucking win a fight if she doesn't win this one herself.
There's no chance. None. Kubo fucking baited the hook getting me excited for Rukia actually being cool and useful, and like a fucking idiot I fell for it hook line and sinker.
If Bykuya just one shots this fucker I'm out. I'm done. I have limits for garbage. I walked out on Naruto for less bullshit then that.
She oneshotted D-Roy.
Byakuya won't even need Bankai either.
Nope. With this chapter I think it's official that D-Roy survived.
Come on now, Byakuya still fears for his imouto.
This fight is asking for Ichigo coming about. I don't have fears now. I must protect my nakama.
If Rukia doesn't fucking win this fight by herself, D-Roy will be fucking retroactively revived. The chapters before this one would change, or Kubo will pull some dumb bullshit out and he'll be alive.
They were friends, of course she's worried about Inoue
It seems like Ichigo is hollow in the upper panel there, but it seems more like she's recalling specific moments from previous in the manga but just trying not to remember them all the way. Notice that no one in that panel has eyes, like at all here.
Ichigo doesn't, Byakuya, Inoue, Ichigo, Rukia, and that guy in the other corner. No one has eyes as a stylistic choice, whether it means she's repressing remembering or it's more like Parasyte where people don't tend to remember facial features as much as they would claim. It'll all come together when you look closely at the other faces, it's just Inoue stands out because of her big eyes.
>didn't post generic_image_of_the_master.jpg
4/10, there was an effort
>D-Roy is actually sword
>he saves sharktits
I think Bleach would probably become the best story ever told at that point
>Petals all fall onto the ground trembling
>When did you fall under the impression that objects cannot feel fear?
why does this guy have the quincy cross in his eye
it was a joke
what if "Somebody save my ass" is Rukia's bankai?
>Renji demolishes his opponent against all expectations in a casual manner
>Rukia fucking jobs
FUCK YOU KUBO
I think how would be a better question.
>her bankai is an arctic flare that summons someone to her location
That's quite Kubo
Whoever reveals all their tricks first loses
Not if they have more tricks in their bag. I was expecting Rukia to have a Bankai at this point.
as much as I dislike that the female lead has been so useless in bleach fights, I find the idea that someone of Rukia's powerlevel could suddenly get boosted to the point where they could take out one of the most hyped up Sternritter to be utter bs.
with the exception of Ichigo and Hog empowered Aizen, bleach has always been relatively consistent with a characters power level. It takes years of hard work and training to grow. Renji's boost makes sense; he has been portrayed as being on the cusp of captain level since the middle of the soul society arc, and what he was missing was refinement. Rukia's always been VC or below tier. to suddenly rise out of nowhere to captain tier would be ridiculous
really though, kubo should have fed her a victory against a weak sternritter, like on of bambi's gang before breaking out alucard spooky wild ride.
I know, my joke was that you should have posted an image of Kubo, completing it.
>Expecting her to get Bankai after a couple of hours
May as well give one to Chad at this point too.
>that feel when the abridged comic won't ever be updated again
Freeze to death would have been an amazing page for it.
That would not shock me at all. The ghost spirits of everyone that's ever helped her at the least.
That fucking thing is actually unsettling. I didn't think Kubo still had it in him to make good character designs.
you guys are really jumping to conclusions. byakuya has just arrived, he has not even done anything. we have no idea how this is going to play out. for all we know, they will both job and get saved by ichigo
So how is Byakuya immune to fear now? Because at least Rukia's dead state made some semblance of sense. More than "fangirls asked, so I'm here".
Fuck, thanks for reminding me about that. I need to go re read it, shit's golden.
>Rukia is useless and has to be saved yet again
HA! Eat shit Rukiafags. She's more useless than Renji now.
Fuck Rukia, she's just a lieutenant, she never had a chance. Also, screw revenge fights, Byakuya's gonna demolish Nodt in no time
It really really is/was.
>So how is Byakuya immune to fear now?
Stop jumping to conclusions. What even made you think hat in the first place? He literally showed up on one page.
Wait, what just happened? I finished the chapter, and I'm pretty sure it said 20 pages, but why did it feel like 3?
What the hell just happened to me? How does Kubo keep doing that?

>did more damage to As Nodt than Byakuya previously could, forcing him to go Vollstanding
He fears Rukia dying, by being able to see Rukia alive, he has the chance to protect her, and prevent that fear from happening.
what's there to say other than
Western comics have nothing to do with this. This is purely Kubo.
I can read any number of 20 page manga and feel like I read something.
Reading Kubo is like going through a 3 page flipbook.
Okay someone else sweeping in to save the day when another character is just about to be defeated is fine, but not when it's done every single time someone else enters the battle. Every. Single. Time. Can't Byakuya just come in and slash Nodt WHILE he's powering up? Or even while he's standing there as an ice statue or when Rukia's trying to fight him off? I mean what does every single character just wait for the person fighting to be on the brink of losing before they decide to come in? Showing up at the exact right time, every time, just isn't fucking likely.
>He fears Rukia dying
Considering Rukia is dead, then he has nothing to fear now.
In terms of time it takes to read shonenshit chapters
OP only takes so long because you need to spend a minute on each frame to figure out what is happening in the god awful art.
Same with Naruto.
>Your Imouto will never be perfectly preserved at absolute zero
Most of the Sternritter are dead and Kubo isn't introducing anybody new. At this rate Vandenreich's gonna lose pretty fast
Just makes buckbeard stronger so the result is the same.
And when SS find out that killing a sternritter makes Ywach stronger, they will start preserving them.
Doesn't matter, their true goal is to invade the Royal Realm with their top 5 fighters during the confusion.
In all honesty this is bullshit. Absolute Zero is not a skin-level freezing, and even if it would be, his entire skin, hair, and everything should be crumbling away now. His eyes in particular should be broken ice balls.
I'm not on the train to defent Rukia for her bullshit victories, but this was a fucking bullshit defeat. Ass Note simply shouldn't have survived that.
Byakuya is a spotlight stealing fangirl pandering lil' bitch.
But this is shounen 101, nothing freezes in an instant, you have a turn to power up, if you not you go out. As Nodt still had Volstanding thing.
Guys, why are Byakuya's eyes dark like in Rukia's vision??
Vollstandig does magic. The same happened to Cang Du but then he was fine. BG9 had half his upper body blown open and he recovered, Bambietta was stabbed through the heart but her wound closed, and Quilge was crushed and his neck twisted and broken by Allon and yet he recovered in seconds.
Everyone's eyes are black there.
>>When did you fall under the impression that objects cannot feel fear?
>mfw fear itself starts trembling
As nodt Vollstandig appearance sure is scary.
It looks similar to the final form of Hōgyoku aizen
No, I meant when Byakuya made his entrance.
i guess kubo thinks it creates tension, even though we know no major characters are going to die
>Hear. Fear. Here 2
Oh fucking hell here we go...
>As Notd goes Volstandig
Here we fucking go!
>Rukia starts to fear
Well, I expected this from last chapter...
...so why go into an elaborate bullshit explanation as to why Rukia is immune to fear, then have Byakuya save her anyway? The entire last chapter could have been skipped, literally, as this is the last arc and it's not like we're gonna see Rukia's new powers anymore anyway.
different anon here. for me it's not that he survived but that the effect was only skin deep. he should have had to regenerate from crumbled pieces or some shit.
ulquiorra r2 rehash
Yeah there is a chance of this happening but I am afraid that byakuya solos.
But he was whole.
>That's just retconing and you know it. Either way it invalidated the whole idea behind the "he never lied" page.
It's just mistranslation, it was always 斬月, it's just each character can be pronounced a few different ways depending on how they're being used. Toe may toe, toe mah toe
Well I am glad that rukia power has its limit. Otherwise it will be too hax. And looks like she didn't obtain bankai yet.
Have we even seen the Tres since?
Those are his eyelashes, but waterpanda sucks as at redrawing and shading so they ended up fucking up Byakuya's eyes.
so? he would still fracture just from holding his own weight in that state.
>I'm not on the train to defent Rukia for her bullshit victories, but this was a fucking bullshit defeat. Ass Note simply shouldn't have survived that.
>Byakuya is a spotlight stealing fangirl pandering lil' bitch.
That you've read Bleach this long and you're still surprised by Kubo's dogshit writing is amazing in itself.
That you somehow thought Kubo would change after all these years of being a piece of shit author is the saddest thing.
Fuck everyone who was swearing up and down that Rukia was going to win this, myself included.
FUCK YOU, KUBO!
>And looks like she didn't obtain bankai yet.
how do you know that? nothing much really happened this chapter, why is everyone drawing so many conclusions from it
all of yfw Ryuuken arrives with a group of Quincy. Yhwachs gotta have some quincy up his sleeve. the stern ritter are going down too easily
>As Nodt survived after absolute zero
fuck you kubo.
The last chapter was explaining Rukia's powers. There is no reason to believe that this is going to be Rukia's last fight considering Renji is already starting his second one.
Are you really upset that As Nodt was nodt as easy to beat as he thought it was? Rukia's new power, while cool, was really just 0K
But he didn't, and he only lasted a couple of seconds in that state.
but that's just stupid.
>Absolute Zero is not a skin-level freezing, and even if it would be, his entire skin, hair, and everything should be crumbling away now. His eyes in particular should be broken ice balls.
She has mastered cryogenic freezing. The faster you freeze something, the smaller the ice crystals.
I love how the reply to that post mentions Byakuya saving Rukia's ass.
Oh, and I'm sure this will be the last time we see Rukia get to fight which won't be the typical final battle off-panel bullshit.
This is Bleach, not even a direct hit the the embodiment of the Sun is enough to kill somebody immediately.
How did Byakuya get here before Ichigo?
Or is Ichigo already here somewhere?
Page 3. Rukia mention that it is a complex power and she need to train more. This means that she haven't really manage to master her power yet. Makes sense since she is still a vice captain. Renji is a different case since he has bankai for almost 2 years already. He is properly close to captain level before the timeskip.
>Are you really upset that As Nodt was nodt as easy to beat as he thought it was?
No. I'm upset that Kubo apparently can't let Rukia have any screen-time without her being there just to be saved by Byakuya, who should have fucking died the last time he fought.
It also turned out that James (the cheerleader) was the quincy soul, he got sliced to pieces and survived.

ichigo is busy flying around at the speed of sound
Wasn't Ichigo in an upper level?
he's got places to go
gotta follow his rainbow
anyone else hoping that the byakuya who appeared was conjured by nodt, just to troll the shit out of her
Bankai is a requirement for being promoted to captain, not the threshold of captain level.
>How did Byakuya get here before Ichigo?
>Or is Ichigo already here somewhere?
Ichigo stopped the training for a bit and came back, in that time the others went passed him.
He said he'd be there in a few hours, meaning we're going to see people get fucked a lot more that this before he comes.
But what if it DOES happen?
Since my sides have yet to return from orbit
Yeah it sure has gotten a bit old. It will be a bit better if someone else rescue her instead of being byakuya all the time.
>the manga of counterattacks
I really, REALLY fuckin' hope that in the final fight when Ichigo, Aizen, and Uryuu team up to fight Bach it turns out James was a manifestation of the Superstar power and he pops up to cheer Bach on.
I'll give Kubo 10/10 and say all the bullshit was worth it if that happens. I'll forgive Tatsuki disappearing, Hitsugaya existing, the Espada jobbing, and all of Mexico for that.
There are so many Sternritter for Byakuka to destroy, but Rukia still can't have one because woman...
It feels like this, actually. And I know it's a japanese manga so I shouldn't be surprised but Kubo never felt japanese. Bleach never had the taint of typical japanese shonen (pantyshots, dick/snot jokes, etc).
>anyone else hoping that the byakuya who appeared was conjured by nodt, just to troll the shit out of her
No. Because it'll suck ass when the real Byakuya shows up three chapters later and saves Rukia's peachy ass and one-shot As Nodt with his shikai, pose, say some pretentious, condescending, douchebag shit like "Mah pride for mah emotoe fears no fear, as dez petils kno no peer". And thus Byakuya's hambeast fangirl fanbase will schlick their beefy vags furiously for all eternity in joy, while the Rukia is never seen fighting again, unless it's an off-panel getting one-shotted by Buckbeard/Aizen or her standing around praising Byakuya for one-shotting his next opponent, while Ichigo cleans up.
As Nodt vs. Alucard. Who wins?

All the while Kubo makes an assload of money. The End.
The Emperor of Mankind.
I don't get how freezing and fire doesn't work.
But cutting niggas doe-
Wait, that doesn't either. Unless you're Yama.
It's not what you use that matters.
It's the mastery over your domain and reiatsu that counts.
You should really score a spokesman job for some corrupt organization. Tell them with your PhD in Kubology you can bullshit your way out of any scandal.
Is Kubo forced to bitch females around because japan?
He's generating the illusion of a character who was 3 times more effective against As Nodt than pre-training Byakuya being weaker than Byakuya, just because Byakuya did the training too.
It doesn't make the obvious power gap seem less apparent, but it conceals it with a clichéd hero savior moment.
Rukia wasn't even damaged, let alone fucking trashed like Byakuya was. As Nodt literally just activated his new ability. Kubo used the tension to punch in a Byakuya and hush away the question wether Rukia could have dealt with As Nodt's powerup or not.
She didn't even use any of her dances.
>Rukia wasn't even damaged, let alone fucking trashed like Byakuya was. As Nodt literally just activated his new ability. Kubo used the tension to punch in a Byakuya and hush away the question wether Rukia could have dealt with As Nodt's powerup or not.
>She didn't even use any of her dances.
There's really no defending this shit, since worst case scenario Fear-Guy should have been allowed to mind-rape Rukia before she hastily used her Absolute D powers again and 'damaged her body', only to find out Fear-Guy powers work even with your body frozen (because nerves). before Byakuya steps in and saves the day.
I would have rather Rukia go through all her techniques and AT LEAST take As Nodt out with her, instead of Byakuya jumping in right away.
What you're doing right now is summing it all up as "power", which just over complicates matters when you try to think about it. The reality is much simpler: Rukia was trying the same strategy against a new approach from the enemy and her mistake cost her the victory. Byakuya simply arrived from outside As Nodt's ability range and broke it from a safe distance, something Rukia didn't get the chance to try. It becomes even simpler when you stop pairing "Fear" with "Strength".
>He's generating the illusion of a character who was 3 times more effective against As Nodt than pre-training Byakuya being weaker than Byakuya, just because Byakuya did the training too.
He's Captain class, and she's vice-captain class at best who's still some years away from getting Bankai most likely. Of course if they did the same training then he'd come out ahead here, since the initial prospect was greater. Also the conditions are a bit different, as he may have been better or of the same standing against As Notch before, but she actually had a technique that rendered his shit inert which cuts off like 80% of his offensive might. We still don't have much of an indication if she's stronger than a Captain or really Captain level here yet, she's more the type who's smart about using what she has and refining that much rather than being powerful.
Course she didn't use any dances when she was told the true power of her blade, which is better than any dance
Next chapter: Byakuka is immune against fear for reasons that are complete shit, more than why Rukia was immune. And why did it suddenly work? Her nerves were also active before...
Really, that was such a shit chapter.
>I would have rather Rukia go through all her techniques and AT LEAST take As Nodt out with her, instead of Byakuya jumping in right away.
Nope, because that would mean the battle would actually have some form of tension and not just be a special-move spamming pissing contest by motherfuckers too cool for school.
>She didn't even use any of her dances.
Kinda like how Aizen just abandon's Absolute Hypnosis when he goes Butterflyzen, for no other reason than Kubo didn't give enough shit to explain why.
Kubo doesn't understand how biology.
Decide already if the souls have completely human anatomy, or not. If they do, then Rukia couldn't have moved in absolute zero for a variety of different reasons including celluar fluids, muscle mechanics, joint liquids, and so on.
The nerve thing makes sense if As Nodt's power switched from chemical to visual. The chemicals could not penetrate Rukia's frozen skin earlier. But Rukia shouldn't even be able to see with frozen eyes.
Kubo should've just given Rukia a bankai.
Yamamoto shouldn't be able to exist after using Bankai for a picosecond, but he can. It's their Zanpakuto's ability to make their bodies reach those absurd temperatures, it makes sense that it grants their owner some sort of protection from itself, which we know is limited to a few minutes or seconds. Just because Yamamoto's Bankai ability is to become as hot as the Sun doesn't mean that he could go to the Sun without his Zanpakuto and survive.
It would have been funny if Kubo threw a random pic of Aizen in there.
>Is Kubo forced to bitch females around because japan?
You don't understand Japan and their values. They believe in a firm difference between men and women.
Women are weak in Japan's eyes and always will be. If a woman exists as part of fighting unit she's the weakest. If she's a strong woman there's someone super superior to her that makes her shit to remind you that she's a woman.
Get used to Japan already. This applies to 90% of all their works.
