>Yhwach has Zanka No Tachi, his own power, and all of the Stern Ritter power
>Can seal Bankai
Why do I feel like pic related is the only person who will be able to fight Bach 1 on 1? Aizen is powerful, smart, and a good tactician. Unfortunately he is currently playing chess with himself in the muken while watching TV using kyouka suigetsu
Isshin is super strong, but a complete retard
Urahara is brilliant, but makes up for his lack in skill of battle with intelligence
The other characters will be cannon fodder, which just leaves Ichigo, who in his current form an't gonna do jack shit. Ishida whooped his faggot ass with one shot.
How fucked is SS /a/?
I just want aizen to show up again and bring peace back to the manga.
Bleach doesn't feel like Bleach without Aizen being in the mix. It's because Aizen is what made Bleach, Bleach.
That and Rukia, who is equally gone.
>Aizen's smile, the last time we see him
We are all going to get mind fucked when Aizen reveals everything was keikaku doori
>but makes up for his lack in skill of battle with intelligence
We don't know that. There was some foreshadowing about his bankai being dangerous stuff and he seems really inventive in battle.
Although, Aizen would be the best bet against Yhwach besides Ichigo, since he already became one with Kyouka Suigetsu.
I don't expect much out of Urahara's bankai in the end. In fact, I expect him to die.
What will Aizen do though? Is he going to show up as an ally and help fight Ywach?
Hell no, he blatantly said fuck you to yhwach when he offered for him to join him as his second in command, and then mind fucked him and inadvertently saved SS
Or did he? I still think Aizen saved soul society on purpose. Nothing he does is by accident.
Urahara's bankai (and his whole character motivation) is one of the oldest things Kubo brought up and left unresolved. It'd be a huge disappointment if it didn't amount to anything special in the end.
His shikai is nothing to write home about in terms of Aizen's Shikai or Yamamoto's, so I don't expect a lot.
What I do expect a lot from is Shunsui's bankai, ISshin's, and Aizen's plotkai
Everyone knows the last battle is going to involve urahara, aizen and yhwach trying to become the next soul king.
In the end Ichigo wins
Really? His shikai was nothing special at all.
But Isshin knows the "final getsuga tensho" whatever that is.
It must be powerful. Isshin himself is pretty powerful.
I hate it when people say he is more powerful than Aizen though after Aizen had defeated the entire gotei 13 and got hit by a hado 96 from the most powerful shinigami ever and took a getsuga tensho to the face.
The shikai doesn't mean much to the bankai, though.
>the last battle involves the five war potentials trying to become the next soul king
I still don't know where he got his time to train. He doesn't look particularly more powerful than any captain-class Shinigami during the time he was in SS. Then he just stuck in his human form for like a decade.
I don't see how Aizen can lose. He couldn't even be killed my Yamamoto. He's immortal and apparently fused with kyouka suigetsu, with his original shinigami powers, (which automatically puts him above everyone else)
Daily reminder we still don't know the full extent of his powers, since the only time he has ever went all out was against Dangai ichigo and that entire battle was garbage tier and world building destroying.
What if Aizen's bankai is "being more powerful than you think he is".
Cool. but can they beat Madara?
And I’m not talking about Edo Tensei Madara. I’m talking about Rinne Tensei Madara Uchiha with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan and with rikidou techniques, his Gunbai, a Perfect Susano’o and control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he also has mokuton kekkei genkai and yin-yang release ninjutsu.
>Aizen is kubo's self insert
We all know how this is going to end...
>Entire manga is an illusion created by Aizen
>Every page of Bleach is now blank white
Isshin seemed to more or less be Youroichi/Urahara level(who I consider to be just as strong as dual wielding bros). The thing is NONE OF THEM USED BANKAI, which annoys me, and Isshin used a fucking finger flick technique which makes me think they were just fucking around/waiting for a plan.
They all knew Aizen was immortal and couldn't do shit.
Hell, Aizen was fucking around too, doing hado 63 without icantation making it look like kurohitsugi and shit
So fucking bad. I hated that arc.
Mayuri can with his Isanami he used against fagsugayass.
>he hated it when the best thing about it was watching aizen give no fucks and asstomp everyone.
Aizen stomping the Gotei 13 was funny but expected.
Aizen turning full retard in deicide was a huge asspull and only served to move the plot along.
>he hated watching the villain kicking the asses of every single undefeatable hero.
If only this were true. But iirc it was uryuu who was the real self insert.
Or so I thought
How did Yhwach dispose of the Couch puppet?
Does yoruichi have a zanpakuto
>Yfw Aizen uses his illusions to help Ichigo and Urahara fight Bach
There isn't a huge correlation between strength in shikai and bankai, Hitsugaya even hinted otherwise. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if at some point someone pulled the reverse, "Out of all the shinigami, my bankai is the greatest increase in power from my shikai"
>Daily reminder Aizen will turn into the anti hero of Bleach
Posting proof now
>Aizen's theme is stand ablaze
>Song is about sacrificing ones life for the good of all
>Stand Ablaze was the chapter title for chapter 511, which Is the chapter Ichigo came to save soul Society from bach and Aizen helped deter Yhwach
Aizen's entire plan is to create someone worthy to be soul king (Ichigo).
>Tfw Aizen was actually trying to justify the world.
>That is the theory of the vanquished
>logic/theory of the vanquished
In Japanese it means the same thing. Basically Aizen is telling Urahara off, that he is acting like a loser who has given up hope on improving the world.
The renamed chapter title to 512
"The Stand Ablaze"
The time is now
Please tell me how
Remembering how it used to be
Scarred for eternity
Was it meant to be?
A life in harmony...
From this world, contrary
As the flames caress my face
>Aizen is lonely
Ichigo is going to defeat Yhwach, Yhwach is going to be all like "you can't kill me because i'm the Quincy king and i'll just eat your powers" and then Ichigo is going to eat HIS powers and become the Quincy king, and that's how he's going to save Ishida.
But can Madara beat his old friend Tsukishima who taught Madara everything he knows?
Kubo is Aizen's self-outsert.
He can just do a large aoe like a meteor and Facebook will have no way to dodge that.
I think ran out of Ideas for that battle, and there is no way ichigo would win if Aizen used kyouka suigetsu, and so thats why Aizen did not use his instant win ability because ...reasons.
I also hated how Aizen lost his cool because Ichigo was "stronger" than him, so fucking what? Old man firered was stronger than him at that time, even Aizen said so, but that did not stop Aizen from fucking him up.
It makes no sense for Aizen to lose to someone who can only use getsuga tensho even after ten years of manga.
Because Ichigo wasn't just "stronger" than him, he was leagues ahead of him after he came out of the train dimension.
Also even if Aizen had used Kyoka Suigetsu it wouldn't have worked for the same reason Soi Fon's 2 hit kill didn't work on Aizen.
That said, there's no reason why he didn't use it on Ichigo BEFORE.
>Because Ichigo wasn't just "stronger" than him, he was leagues ahead of him after he came out of the train dimension.
That was such an horrible aspull. How can a power up that can be achieved by just about any Shinigami grant powers beyond those of Hogyouku Aizen is retarded.
Also the hougyoku only made Aizen what he was because he had the will and power to do it. Just like an ant couldn't use the hogyoku to turn him into god.
Looks shooped. Why would Kubo change it? The previous title fit much better.
It's not shopped. If you actually bought the manga you would know.
But Aizen used Kyoka Suigetsu on Yamamoto who was stronger than him at that time, which shows that Kyoka Suigetsu can bypass reatsu levels, if it worked on someone like Yamamoto, there is no reason for Kyoka Suigetsu not working on Ichigo besides the fact that Kubo could not write himself out of this one.
The fact that Aizen did not even try to use KS even when he was losing should make clear that Kubo was forcing Aizen to lose this fight, not because Ichigo was stronger, but simply because he is the mc. This battle was plotkay/plotarmor for ichigo all the way.
Oh, how long has it been since I saw Tsuki called that~
We know the Ichigo vs Aizen fight was bullshit. Which is why kubo is retconning those power levels. But there is nothing to suggest Yamamoto has higher reiAtsu levels than Aizen. That is not known.
Damn. It's just so unfitting. Why waste Aizen's character song as a title for a chapter in which he doesn't even appear?
There are many parallels between Aizen and Ichigo. They will become friends in the end
We don't know that, we know the bypassing thing is about reiatsu, maybe Yamamoto had lower reiatsu than Aizen.
Aizen just said his Zanpaktou was too dangerous.
Or it's an asspull.
Actually, uh...Aizen admitted Yamamoto was stronger than himself, at least he admitted he'd lose in a straight up fight.(Which is what Wondertism was a thing.)
That never happened, he acknowledged going against Ryu jin Jakka would be too dangerous, which is why he created Wonderweiss to seal it.
Base Aizen is probably stronger than base Yamamoto. Hence Aizen could beat him in the game of pressure. Remember this is the same guy who out grimmjow to his knees by barely flexing his reaitsu.
Knowing him it'd probably be the ability to adapt his Zan to different abilities or maybe outright steal them. What we do know about his Zan is that it's actual ability cannot be used to help Ichigo train and that it involves blood somehow.
>>Every page of Bleach is now blank white
How is that different from usual?
We don't have any idea of the mechanics behind his shikai. Given what we've seen it be capable of, his bankai could be pretty much goddamn anything at this point because of the lack of thematic cohesion between his wannabe getsuga(with aimbot attachments), the shield, the exploding net, and the nullifier.
>yfw the reason Aizen only wanted to kill Yamamoto is so his Bankai couldn't get stolen by Bach
It's a bit unclear, Aizen seems to be implying that it's only because of Yama's Zanpaktou that he is stronger.
Of course Yamamoto then goes to town on Wonderweiss with his bare hands so who knows. But either way, the implication seems to be that Yamamoto's Reiatsu isn't high enough to nullify Kyoka Suigetsu, keep in mind that this doesn't mean he doesn't have more reiatsu than Aizen, it just means his power isn't so far above Aizen's that he can just say "lolno" to Aizen's techniques.
I like the theory that Aizen is much older than he appears, but he was only recently reawakened. He should be over 2000 years old if we can explain his power correctly and the fact that nobody knows who he is. Or he's running under a alias. I don't know. Powerful souls apparently age very slow?
I remember all the crazy theories about Aizen way back then, i remember people saying that he spoke in an alien manner so maybe he wasn't from Soul society.
There's also the possibility that Urahara, much like Mayuri, might have improved his zanpakuto to the point it became something significantly different from its original form. The difference would be that he altered his shikai instead of his bankai, which could be it's actual power and not the swiss knife we see with the shikai.
Aizen vs Yhwach would be amazing
I'm still mad about the final Aizen fight though, his designs and everything were full retard
He expected Yamamoto to shitstomp wonderbread brain. He banked on either the collateral from the explosion of all of yamamoto's flame to break the barrier, or yama to pull the sacrifice he did and take himself out.
>I didn't see Aizen
>He wasn't there
People have died that way anon.
But the real question is why Aizen felt the need to become Yhwach's bodyguard on the way to becoming a demonslaying bounty hunter.
>mfw Aizen brushed off hado 96 from the strongest shinigami like it was A gust of wind that blew his curl out of place.
He probably expected Yamamoto to beat Wonderweiss but
> or yama to pull the sacrifice he did and take himself out.
Aizen was surprised about that and he almost shit himself when Yama started casting the Kido, he definitively didn't expect that.
>Aizen bitch slaps the strongest kido ever.
Nah, he was burned and bleeding after the explosion, the Hougyoko just healed him.
Askin being Aizen would be awful, he's already a nice character on his own.
That's what i'm expecting, his shikai and bankai are all modified to hell and back which is why it has a billion abilities.
Mayuri's Shikai and Bankai are still pretty much the same, the shikai paralizes and the bankai vomits poison gas.
I'm OP of thread. I'm going to make an Aizen theory thread tomorrow since he's pretty much the only interesting character left. If anyone's interested that is.
The best part about Aizen in the fake karakura town arc was this.
>RG survives the fight with quincy, Ichigo arrives to save the day
>Ichigo defeats mustache cunt, Arc End
>not Series End
>timeskip, turns out the Soul King was evil the whole fucking time, it just happens that everyone trying to stop him was also evil
>RG/captains get a power-up, Zangetsu rendered useless by sword forging RG guy
>Ichigo ditches his sword and trains to use his Quincy/Hollow powers on their own, without a zanpakuto medium, has a head start on hollow due to Visored training so he isn't completely helpless at first
>has to defeat SS and RG with only Uryuu, big titty girl, and Chud to help him
>Lots of shinigami turn traitor because they're Ichigo's friends, some surviving former SR quincies also show up to help, Grimmjow finally makes an appearance
>milk milk milk ect
Aizen is the only time bleach ever shines in writing. It's when kubo really goes all out.
Are you sure anon?
Are you really sure?
>Aizen let Ichigo out then fucks with ywachs senses
Aizen is perfect
too bad bleach is stated to end next year.
the only twist left is soul king being the final villain and easily beating juha bach, only to be defeated by Aizen+Ichigo
Aizen and Ichigo. The story of destiny.
Keigo already confirmed for final villain.
Attacks never work on him twice.
It's probably the same as with the other sternritter, they can't bring out the full power.
Aizen is strong but in pure fighting capability Yamamoto was one of the few capable of fighting him (and who jobbed to Yhwach). Aizen said this himself. After Aizen lost to Ichigo he became depowered, so he's back to pre-hogyoku levels of strength but with added immortality and possibly Kyouka Suigetsu fused with his body.
Just give Aizen a new Asauchi.
>Aizen spectacularly avoided killing anyone in the Fake Karakura town arc
Didn't he start stabbing his own arrancar in the back when they stopped being useful? I forgot who killed Stark and KO'd Harribel, I think it was him. He also killed Gin I'm pretty sure, and he probably would've killed Ichigo's friends had he not dicked around so much while they ran.
I'd chalk that up to Kubo being too much of a pussy to kill off anyone who isn't fodder or an enemy made specifically to be threatening and then get killed. Hiyori got chopped in half and still didn't die.
Something tells me Bleach wont end in a year. Sounds like wishful thinking.
He only knocked out Hallibel.
Shunsui killed Stark.
Barragan killed himself.
He killed Gin.
He wasn't going to kill Ichigo's friends, he was just making time by playing cat and mouse with them because he was waiting for Ichigo.
>and who jobbed to Yhwach
He only jobbed because lelQuincyMedallionCanStealEvenZankaNoTachi. Aizen being one with Kyouka Suigetsu would be an enormous advantage.
That would be fucking hilarious. Aizen wanted someone as his equal so that they could become Soul King so he didn't have to
>Gin wants to be a good guy
Gin just wanted revenge on Aizen for orchestrating the rape of his childhood friend.
I'm sticking with Rukia on his overall moral leanings.
Yeah Ichimaru was definitively a bad guy, just because he wanted to murder Aizen doesn't mean he was a good person, and it certainly didn't excuse all the shit he pulled with Aizen.
Hell, some of the shit he did he did just because he was a sadist, like how he tortured Rukia in the soul society arc, how he tried to murder Jidanbou or how he cut Hiyori in two.
>Cut Hiyori in two
>like how he tortured Rukia in the soul society arc
I remember when people were twisting this as a KUBO twist where Gin gave Rukia back her will to live because he knew Ichigo would save her.
he's still stronger than Yamamoto. Aizen has to create an arrancar specifically designed to seal his power and that was just his shikai.
Yhwach is strong enough to not only seal but control his bankai. Big difference. Not only that but when Yhwach last fought Yamamoto 1000 years ago he was in his prime and Yhwach described an old Yama as being far weaker.
Yhwach is definitely stronger than Aizen. As long as Yhwach comes into physical contact with Aizen, the illusion is dispelled. That's not even including what broken abilities Yhwach has. Aizen may be immortal because of the hogyoku but as long as someone is strong enough to seal him he can be defeated.
How will you feel when Bleach threads become nothing but shipping like Naruto threads now are?
>Kirinji already released shikai
He's finished. Which RG will go down next?
You mean Yhwach is stronger than Shinigami Aizen, Aizen is no longer just a shinigami.
A pure quincy or a pure shinigami cannot beat Aizen anymore, only Ichigo can.
You're underestimating how fucked up Kyouka Suigetsu is. Aizen bond to a chair was able to mess with his head and distort his sense of time, who knows what else he wouldn't be able to do if he was set free. Not to mention, you know, the immortality thing.
The thing with Yamamoto, though, is that he was the greatest at raw power. No one could stand the power of his zanpakuto without some sort of artifice. But between Yhwach and Aizen that almost certainly wouldn't be the case.
i just really wanna see urahara's and shunsui's bankai
saying 'my bankai isn't good for helping anyone' and 'don't use it where others can see' for them respectively just makes me want to see them.
Loved that scene.
Vaizard were like 'Jesus fuck Gin'
Aizen was like 'Really Gin'
Gin was all 'Not my fault, she ran into my sword'
>Unohana's bankai will never be explained
Fuck this shit.
Even Shinji the ultimate retard was like. "You probably shouldn't attack him you silly bitch" and she lost her legs for it.
Obviously if she didn't lose her legs then Unohana wouldn't have had to waste more time healing people and bitches woulda got melted
>yfw the RG have mastered Jinzen and can perform "final techniques" like FGT but without losing their powers like Ichigo
Shikai -> Bankai -> Jinzenkai?
Aizen was mostly depowered at the end except for immortality and zanpaktou fusion.
Saying Aizen can't be defeated because he isn't a shinigami anymore because it was Urahara that sealed him.
Immortality only goes so far. Aizen was sealed and he can be sealed again. I think people are also underestimating Yhwach, partly because we know very little about his abilities. Yhwach can distribute his soul as well as engrave other people's souls. If he can do that to Aizen then KS is void since he can detect Aizen's presence at the very least regardless of illusions.
>I think people are also underestimating Yhwach,
Yhwach gets the dead Sternritter's abilities right?
So he can Mask de Masculine while he Gremmys.
Shits almost as broken as when he gets Uryu's not dieing when hollows give me stds power.
>Aizen was sealed and he can be sealed again
He was sealed because he was momentarily surpassed by Ichigo. I don't think it would be that simple to seal him again.
>he can detect Aizen's presence at the very least regardless of illusions
It's not that much about Aizen's presence as it is about all the weird shit he could pull now that he transcended the existence of a shinigami and fused with Kyouka Suigetsu.
Yhwach does literally get their power as in abilities, but gets their power as in Reiatsu/Reiryoku. And only a portion of it.
She's alive, she'll have a proper fight.
Yhwach is just a really, really weird soul. I wouldn't be surprised if he really is the Spirit King's son. We don't know if he gets hollow stds. I don't know if its even fair to simply call him at times other than him creating the quincy line.
Very few people in the entire series spontaneously get powers outside of the Shinigami/Hollow/Quincy/Fullbringer paradigm (not including shit like modsouls and zanpaktou spirits). The only exceptions besides Yhwach are Orihime and Don Kanonji.
Also a theory I've had, what if hollows that are killed by quincies are actually being returned to Yhwach. Its stated that the main reason to quincy extermination was due to quincy's removing the souls from existence and tipping the balance the exists between the material world and the spirit world. What if hollow souls are actually being absorbed by Yhwach?
>What if hollow souls are actually being absorbed by Yhwach?
This has the makings of at least a level 8 Kubo.
Wouldn't he have killed all the hollows by now instead of trying to enslave them if that was the case?
No, he was sealed because he got depowered. The seal could have gone off at any time but it didn't because he would have been too powerful for it. Aizen had to be weakened and the power he acquired from the hogyoku is gone.
And I'm not sure where you're going with Aizen transcending and KS fusion. Its not like Aizen wasn't capable of being defeated after transcendence. Gin almost killed him. Any of that "higher dimension of existence" talk is just Aizen being an arrogant twat as usual and not literal.
Urahara can wrassle not-criminals into submission with his bare hands. Ikkaku was in awe at Urahara being ichigo's fencing instructor. he's also a genius and has all his gimmicky science powers. he also meticulously manipulated the core cast into the perfect unsuspecting anti-aizen formation. Urahara's pretty much as good as if not better than Aizen at everything Aizen's ever been good at. Urahara's just not been as aggressive about it
Aizen is done. He's too broken not to use, and he knows he can't match Ichigo. He'll probably be happy just knowing his creation becomes king of the universe.
Urahara's such a bro.
>Aizen says Urahara is the only person outside of his intellectual understanding.
>Urahara replies "I think you have me mistaken... I'm just a simple candy shop owner."
>No, he was sealed because he got depowered
And who "depowered" him?
>And I'm not sure where you're going with Aizen transcending and KS fusion. Its not like Aizen wasn't capable of being defeated after transcendence
I'm saying he's not the same Aizen that faced Yamamoto.
>Gin almost killed him
Gin waited years to find himself in the most favorable position as possible.
And he still blew it.
>Any of that "higher dimension of existence" talk is just Aizen being an arrogant twat as usual and not literal
What? It couldn't be more literal, the guy's fucking immortal.
And Kubo has ruined yet another thread >>115308648
Aizen's plan was the be soul king himself because he was lonely, egotistical and short sighted. It'll have been Urahara's plan to sacrifice Ichigo to live in a comatose crystal forever in order to change the world because Urahara fully intends to actually have a life to live once the status quo is fucked to his liking.
Not necessarily. He gets their power but we don't know if he gets those exact abilities back or not.
> The only exceptions besides Yhwach are Orihime and Don Kanonji.
All humans can get spirit powers, Keigo for example can see hollows and shinigami even though he's just a normal human.
Yhwach is obviously linked to the Soul King in some way though.
>tfw gremmy's power is basically a hyougoku
>fight bach 1 on 1
Aizen was strong because he had a century of planning behind him. He's not gonna get much done after being strapped to a chair for a year now
Not really, if it was like the hougyoko he would've overpowered Zaraki instead of exploding.
>aizen avoided killing anyone in fake karakura
>straight up disintegrated innocent people
GOSH AIZEN YOU SUCH A GOOD GUY
>Implying this isn't in his plans
Don't tell me you actually think that everything after the battle with Aizen wasn't an illusion?
It's not like he really did it intentionally. It just sort of happened.
I'm not saying Gin is a good guy, but that whole scene with Rukia really made me try to closely analyze why he would be doing that. Is he really SUCH an inherent dick that he just wanted to fuck with her? I don't think so. He's sneaky and shady-looking but I don't think he'd do it just for kicks. My theory is he did it entire to "restore" Rukia's fear of death and break her acceptance of her fate, because fear of death means you will try to fight against it, and that would potentially throw a wrench in Aizen's plans. It might not have been a particularly nice way to go about it, but I don't think he was just trying to be sadistic.
Would they just kind of let him go 20000 years later?
>Is he really SUCH an inherent dick that he just wanted to fuck with her?
Where else has he done anything willfully sadistic to someone with whom he had no business crossing paths?
middle of a fucking fight
he was attempting to allow entry to an intruder, and Gin wouldn't allow it. It was entirely within his duty as a gotei 13 captain to keep the ryouka and anyone who would aid them out.
To begin with, there is no way that Rukia kicking and screaming all the way to the execution phoenix thing would in any way mess with Aizen's plans.
Secondly, if that's what he intended he failed anyway since Rukia was at peace when he was on the execution stand.
Third, there is absolutely no reason to believe that Gin did it for that reason.
Fourth, Rukia herself says that Gin has always been a creepy asshole.
Fifth, Gin also sliced Hiyori in two when he had no reason to do it, he literally did it just because. What, he did it to protect Aizen? Of course not, later on Gin himself says himself that he didn't do anything during the whole fight because it wasn't like Aizen needed help, are you saying he needed help with fucking Hiyori? Fuck no.
He also seemed more than happy to cut off Jidanbou's arm, he could've just killed him if he had wanted to.
He also tortured Hitsugaya by forcing him to a place where he would have to fight Hinamori.
It was also implied that Kira was completely fucked because of Gin.
Wonderweiss wanted to defend Tosen from Gin because he felt Gin was 2spooky. Even Ulquiorra implied it when Gin was playing around in the Las Noches control room.
And lastly, when Tousen burned Grimjow's arms Gin told Aizen it wasn't very nice to tease his subordinates like that, and Aizen said it was funny hearing that coming from Gin.
So tl;dr: No, Gin is not a good guy. He was a sadistic asshole, he loved Rangiku and hated Aizen and the only 2 times we see that he may or may not be operating against Aizen was when he was messing around in the Las Noches control room and when he tried to restore Ichigo's resolve.
And i don't know why people are so invested in doing all the mental gymnastics to make Gin into a good guy, if anything, if he was just a good guy pretending to be a villain then he would pretty generic and boring.
Why skip all those lines? It looks like shit to read.
/a/, what will your face be when it actually WAS Aizen all along?
Chad's Demonic Power will Beat Bach
That would be the greatest Kubo of all time.
Is this powerlevel crap discussion?
I hope not.
I want "Urahara's Team" to roll in, because they're a perfect replacement for the royal guard once they job and in all honestly the most thematically appropriate.
Tessai, Urahara, Yoruichi, Isshin, and Ryuken
It could work, it so could fucking work, and would be a perfect way to tie in Uryu's father and explain why the fuck he isn't dead.
Uh, didn't Gin also fuck with the hallways in HM to make sure Rukia faced the 9th Espada or am I remembering this wrong? Dude was a dick to her just because he could be.
Damn she would be a great girl, a perfect waifu. If only she was a "she". Fuck you Kubo! You gave me a waifu, trolled me with attaching dick to her. Im not a faggot you know.
You are an asshole, Kubo.
Wow you sure failed reading hard. Way to get suckered on a plot point that is so obvious it wasn't even Kubo tier, I guess?
>smell of semen
Thats Kubo for you.
Where does the the Bleach reading level shit come from?
you can still be a dick and wish for the villain to lose. Gin was an asshole, but not a villain. Not very hard to understand
>>and all of the Stern Ritter power
Not yet. He won't be able to use all of them at the same time even if he does have their power.
Some comment Kubo made about a tie-in novel.
It's become a way for retards to insult people who don't agree with them.
I miss this guy.
Urahara is a plagiarist. Someone invents something amazing, he takes it and makes a few modifications or imitates it then calls it something new then receives a bunch of credit.
From now on I suggest we call him Captain America.
So, you think we'll be getting lots of new posters in our general after naruto kicks the bucket?
Do you think bleach will get new readers?
>narutards migrating to these threads
"Still No News On Harribel" the manga.
Unless she's reeaally damn important, I'm starting to lose hope..
>can any character in bleach beat Madara Uchiha?
>and i'm not talking about edo tensei madara uchiha i'm talking about...
This is the future you chose.
Aizen want to be the boss, not to destroy the current order, so ofc he said fuck you to yawach.
>Soi Fon's 2 hit kill didn't work on Momo
fixed it for you
Aizen has directed ichigo's life since he was born to have the same morals and ideas of justice as him, his final test was rukia's rescue arc, to see how would ichigo react before an arbitrary set of rules on an alien society to him.
And he did the exact thing he was expected to, why do you think aizen then jsut put his hnd inside rukia and got the hougyoku like nothing? He never needed to use the soukoku to destroy rukia's soul.
It's all still keikaku doori.
Aren't aizen and bach fighting for the same thing?
Quincies don't exist
Tahy all were old as fuck Aizen's ullusions
>all of the Stern Ritter power
He doesn't get their abilities,but only part of their reiatsu.
He hasn't the Imagination power that Gremmy has,for instance.
I sometimes actually wonder if Kubo is mastermain with all his shit planned or he just browses his older works and just looks for another asspull to make
Only thing that can save this shit for me now is if Rukai splits off from the main group, bumps into Aizen who convinces her to team up with him and then they take on the soul king together.
Fuck everyone else
I don't read this turd, but I do remember Ichigo curbstomped Aizen, why is he weak now?
Curbstomp's cost was losing his powers
But then it turns out they weren't his real powers
We don't know what the fuck Bach is doing.
Aizen wants to overthrow the Soul King.
haven't you read bakuman? there's some kind of foreshadowing that isn't actually foreshadowing until the author deems it that way.
I just want to see Kenpachi go ape-shit.
I want to see Ichigo go ape-shit. I miss the hollow mask.
Keigo doesn't have powers though. Keigo, Tatsuki, and maybe Ichigo's other friends can see spirits now but it took a very long time. I don't think there's been a clear reason since its been retconned at least half a dozen times. Before it had to do with just being around Ichigo, to maybe Karakura Town being more inclined towards spirit activity due to it being the oken, to the powers were manifested because of the hogyoku, which that explanation was negated by Chad being a Fullbringer.
The best explanation now is that Chad and Orihime always had their powers but it was triggered by the events of the series. Chad has always had his fullbring powers.
Orihime however doesn't fit any of the known powers. Her powers aren't simply reishi manipulation so she's not a quincy or fullbringer, especially since her pins are spirits (same reason its not hollow power either). The closest thing related to her powers would be shinigami but it isn't. Come to think of it both those questions about Chad and Orihime's powers came up around the same time.
Not that it hasn't been suggested before but Orihime's powers probably come from Spirit King. I mean obviously its been mentioned before her reality-rejecting powers resemble god's power. It'll probably be brought up again before the end of the series.
But as far as normal humans go, I think Don Kanonji might be the peak of what normal spiritually-inclined humans can do which is just very basic manipulation of spiritual energy.
>daily reminder that in 20 000 aizen will be free to job everyone
Any update ?
That has never been reconnected, they all had the potential to gain superpowers, the hougyokko pulled them out.
And then the hougyoko happened
Its been retconned a half dozen times. Chad was always a fullbringer (as it requires traces of hollow reiatsu in a human parent from a hollow attack), its just that it didn't awaken until contact with Ichigo and the hogyoku.
Similar goes for Orihime but we don't know what her powers are exactly. Of course it'll have some shit to do with the spirit king.
>And then the hougyoko happened
This but then fullbring happened also so its not like Chad's powers manifested out of thin air anymore.
And when exactly has any of that been retconned?
It was said from the very beginning that they were born with those powers, that was never retconned, later it was explained that these powers awakened because of Ichigo, however Aizen later said that it wasn't because of Ichigo that their powers awakened, but because of the hougyoko in rukia. Is that the retcon?
The origin of Chad's powers were explained, that isn't a retcon.
soul king turns out to be the final boss after ichigo urahara and aizen kills yhwach and then we discover that there's an opposite of soul king that represents the hollows because oriental yin/yang logic and shit goes downhill when the battle becomes urahara/aizen/ichigo against soul king against hollow king.
Ok guys, I've stopped reading Bleach around 3 or so years ago on the part where Ichigo gets into the PSP.
Just how much shit has happened from that time and is it gonna be worth catching up?
I know Bleach is fucking ridiculous, but hey, it was my first anime ever.
The final fight is going to be Aizen and Ichigo vs Urahara and the Soul King.
Did Chad or Orihime ever get an upgrade down the line? Or the classmate bunch?
Man, i can't believe that was 3 years ago.
Ok, so, after Ichigo gets on the PSP he eventually kills Ginjou, afterwards the Quincy arc starts. See picture related.
Chad and Orihime trained with urahara and Grimmjow and Halibel's fraccion in Hueco Mundo, they just came back and are heading to the Royal palace with Ichigo.
The classmate bunch haven't gotten any upgrades, but Shunsui the new Captain Commander visited them to tell them they could visit Ichigo in Soul Society at any time if Ichigo was unable to return to the human world.
Oh also Hitsugaya finally died, and then Mayuri raped his corpse.
>Hitsugaya finally died
I liked the guy.
Oh right, Batoto doesn't have this because copyrights.
What non-shit manga website is there that has bleach?
Too bad, everyone you love is dead.
Hitsugaya is dead, Yamamoto is dead, Kensei is dead, Rose is dead, Kira is dead, Komamura turned into a dog, Soi-Fon, Shinji, Omaeda and Hinamori are mia after a Quincy nuked them, Matsumoto is dead, Sasakibe is dead, dead, dead, dead, dead.
Wow, Kubo sure went wild.
Is Kon relevant at all?
Did you forget which manga you're reading? Ichigo pulls something out of his ass in the end.
He was turned into a hulk monster by Mayuri, and then used as a control remote to talk to Urahara in Hueco Mundo.
Kon's eyes are the controls. He also went with Ichigo an Renji to the royal palace.
The best part about kubo is that I have no clue if you're bullshitting me or he actually wrote that in.
I would never lie to you anon.
And here he is in the Royal palace.
Thank you anon.
That's it, I'm catching up on this.
Now to find what was the PSP chapter.
here you go
Actually maybe you meant this chapter.
Thank goodness that interviewer reminded him he exists.
Hitsugaya, Kensei, and Rose are not dead.
>after these elite Sternritter are defeated, four more pop up that are even stronger
>and then after that, even more keep popping up
>because Yhwach is just imagining them into existence
Yes they are. It's been stated multiple times now.
They're Zombies and Mayuri put them under his mind control or whatever, Byakuya even told Mayuri he was a sick bastard and should've freed them and let them die.
They might as well be dead.
By who? A guy whose powers stop working when he stops thinking about the target?
By Mayuri, Byakuya and the trap.
Did you miss the whole fight between Mayuri and Jizzelle and when Zombie Kensei and Zombie Rose saved Byakuya from Pepe?
How naive are you? People say people are dead all the time in Bleach. Haschwald said Byakuya was dead. Ulquiorra said Rukia was dead. Yumichika said Ikkaku was dead and called for his funeral etc etc.
People don't have to be dead to be zombified.
Shit I totally forgot Kon was in the royal palace right now.
>yfw he saves the ass of the royal guard and win a seat there amongst the gods in the credits.
The only true one out of those is the Byakuya one, Ulquiorra said Rukia was dead to fuck with Ichigo, who knew she was still alive, and Yumichika called for Ikkakku's funeral before the fight was even over because he thought he was going to die.
No, but they are, Gremmy killed the Vizards and Cang Du killed Matsumoto, Hitsugaya dropped dead after he was pierced by Bazz-B.
And even IF they weren't dead, they might as well be. They're now just puppets for Mayuri, and Byakuya told him he should've just let them die with honor instead of turning them into puppets.
What will /a/ reaction be when Rukia dies in ichigos arms and gives her heart to him?
>Gremmy killed the Vizards
His powers stop working when he stops focusing on the target.
You don't know if Matsumoto and Hitsugaya are dead. And do you really think it would be hard for Mayuri to reverse their zombification?
That's only assuming he killed them with his imagination, he could've just strangled them or something. We don't know how he killed them. And Cang Du said Matsumoto was dead.
>And do you really think it would be hard for Mayuri to reverse their zombification?
Doesn't matter, he doesn't intend to do it, he literally said this when Byakuya got mad at him for turning them into puppets. Why is it so hard for you to follow a shitty manga like bleach?
Aizen is the soul king. Everything he's done up to this point was to make the Gotei forces stronger either by eliminating the weak or making the strong stronger.
I don't understand: If Urahara knew that Aizen was no good, why didn't he warn Ichigo and co. before they went to save Rukia?
>His powers stop working when he stops focusing on the target.
By that reasoning they should've revived the moment he started focusing on Kenpachi. And we don't know how he killed them, maybe he just strangled them, or stabbed them, or fuck knows.
>You don't know if Matsumoto and Hitsugaya are dead
Cang Du killed Matsumoto and Hitsugaya was dying, later they both showed as Zombies, it's absurd to think they would still be alive after Jizzelle had his way with them.
>And do you really think it would be hard for Mayuri to reverse their zombification?
Byakuya said he should've just killed them, so it may be impossible or they may really be dead, but even if Mayuri could reverse their zombification, he obviously doesn't want to. Hell, he even came up with a name for his zombie squad.
As if it would have mattered
all 13 captains were going to be made enemies
Giselle confirmed that Hitsugaya was zombified before he died. Its why he can talk like a normal person, instead of Bami's muttering, and can fight with more of his power.
Let me add Urahara sent Ichigo and Yoruichi against Yamamoto Unohana
>he could've just strangled them or something
You're reaching really hard here. I don't really get wh-
>Why is it so hard for you to follow a shitty manga like bleach
Oh, I get it. You're a Bleach hater who's here to epic troll everybody by saying their favorite characters are all dead
Are you retarded? How is that reaching? We didn't see how he killed them. And if he really wanted to kill them then why the fuck would they kill them in a way in which they would revive the moment he forgot about having killed them?
Use your fucking brain.
Oh you're right, i completely forgot about that.
Put kido back where it was and it's accurate.
>which just leaves Ichigo, who in his current form ain't gonna do jack shit
Ichigo has done nothing but goof around ever since he got back.
Do you fuckers even read the manga or just shitpost about it all day?
Fucking level 0 readers.
This is to Kubo for me. That would mean he literally planned everything, absolutely everything that happens in the manga concerning Ichigo
Anyone who can make a vector of Orihime?
Anyone wanna bet that Liltoto sides with the shingami because she's the only sane one and eats all the remaining Quincy up and absorbs their powers?
That's of a translated cover, I wanted one of the raw for higher quality and larger size. Thanks anyway.
rose and kensei are confirmed dead, just let it go
I don't think they are.
Considering how much the sternritter numbers have dwindled, are there going to be more enemies?
We haven't seen Zaraki do much, we still haven't seen everybody's bankai, what about the current arrancar force, what are the fullbringers up to?
have you not been reading the thread? the good guys are bad guys, so after the quincies we need back up for all the evil soul reapers
They're going to have to invade the Naruto universe to find more villains to fight.
Posted this >>115323748 in the wrong thread because for some reason this thread doesn't show up in the catalog if you search for "Bleach". Fuck you moot for getting rid of the subject field
>people still think Soul Society are the good guys
When you die in Rukongai you are seperated from the people you knew in real life, also it's hell down there.
Not to mention Yamamoto accepting the genocide of thousands of its residents by Mayuri.
The Soul King needs to die and Soul Society with it. It all needs to change.
sure why not. Yes.
Rukia every day pls
Only canon/merchandise pics y/n?
>this thread doesn't show up in the catalog if you search for "Bleach"
Use a proper catalog.
Filters work as they should.
Good fan material works as well
Good afternoon lab member, how are you.
I don't wanna hafta learn a new thing, pops
We need to do a stream some other time.
What's that, I've missed another stream?
Fine, thanks. A little worried that new chapter will get us back to SS to see some posing and nothing more.
You can import my filter list specifically for Bleach:
Sure, maybe on weekend or something.
I think it will be half SS/Half ouetsu
I wouldn't mind seeing Rukia however.

Save as txt and import.
Urahara was the villain all along testing out his prototypes the Soul King told him to make on Ichigo so that SK would know Ichigo's weaknesses.
And who might these be
I'm getting increasingly mad at how Kubo is completely ignoring Rukia's relationship with Ichigo. It's like it doesn't even matter anymore, and yet it was what the entire series was founded upon. When Ichigo got back to SS the first time they had NO interaction, then he blasts off to soul palace without even saying hello?
There's "Ichigo" there.
War. She's safe so he has places to be.
The only way that Aizen is gonna be reintroduced into the manga is if SS gets so badly fucked that Shunsui has to cut a deal with Aizen and use his wit and shikai abilities.
I genuinely think Soul King is the final villain and Urahara is his #2
I don't follow.
And getting blasted by 4 Finger Fillet doesn't seem safe to me.
But still, their last interaction was when she was dying from reaitsu burns in the hospital.
Well, they DID bathe together.
In those series are characters named Ichigo, so they are being filtered OUT before Bleach filters pin the Bleach-related topics to the top of the thread list.
And ultimately the greatest thread is Yhwach, so wherever she would be and whoever was with her she is NOT safe as long as Yhwach is alive.
Nope. It was her ass floating in a jacuzzi.
Orihime is so cute.
And the ass was definitely fat
Yhwach doesn't necessarily want to kill all Shinigami though. By his own words, he doesn't like conflict. So far he hasn't been caught lying, if memory serves.
I'm definitely expecting maybe 2 pages, 3 tops, of Nimayia's fight, then one of Kubo's fancy chapter title transitions and then back to Renji and Rukia fighting Bazz-B, or Ichigo & co. sitting in their cannon ball mid-transit.
>So far he hasn't been caught lying, if memory serves.
Except, you know, Old Man Zangetsu.
And Royd masquerade. And about the nature of schrift and drinking blood by Uryuu.
Little things like that.
She was unconscious. Doesn't count in my book.
I forget, was yhwach present when B killed off K and I? Considering the prevalence of infighting with the Quincy and that fact that it seems like a pretty casual and regular affair it, kind of implying that yhwach's aware of and okay with it, it seems a little weird to keep thinking Yhwach actually has any particular slant on the killing/no killing thing.
One of the best scenes of the arc imo
>Door to the muken is wide open
>Shunsui standing at its center
but what did it mean?
Yeah, it doesn't. But it was funny.
Just realized that Bach still has old mans bankai. Maybe he'll go 1 on 1 with zero squad with that
Well okay, OMZ did lie. However, Yhwach wasn't lying to Yamamoto. It was Royd, and Yamamoto just goofing it up himself. I forgot what schrift is... and Uryu goofed up just like Yamamoto.
He must've felt their power return to him, so it makes no difference if he was present. He would know regardless. However, slaying K and I was necessary for the war effort.
>She was unconscious
She wasn't hit as hard as Renji and Byakuya, as she was conscious and talking after surgery. She was faking it for reasons unknown, calling it now.
Well considering their souls return to him when they die there really isn't any reason for him to stop them.
The best page of the arc.
yeah but if we're talking about him being against killing, blood shed, and inflicting pain as a humanitarian angle then his full sanctioning of the quincy offing each other is definitely a contradiction. More likely he just doesn't want the quincy slaughtering things with their soul disintegrating weapons and fucking up the balance of the universe, destroying it, before he can take it over.
How the hell does that "reflecting" even work, since it's implied to need speed?
The only thing that comes close is Zaraki tanking Ichigo's sword, but that's subconscious. What, is Ichigo wearing his power as an armor/weapon on his skin?
Not really. It's for the sake of winning the conflict which he hates.
>This never happened
Also how the fuck did shunsui get from karakura to soul society in 4 pages??
jesus christ niggastream
>implying Ichigo isn't the Soul King
>this shit translation
>no one cares about who or what the two kids with urahara are
What's it say then?
Two mod souls in artificial bodies are the least shady shit Urahara has done
>Aizen vs Ichigo in Karakura town
>Intense struggle with no clear winner
>Suddenly Aizen uses hidden move and wins
>Destroys Karakura town and proceeds to make the key
>Grants access the to palace and starts walking up the steps
>Tosses zero trash out the door on the way up
>Gets to the palace room
>Pulls the curtain
He'll take them all on at once, you mean.
So Nimaiya will probably kill 2 or 3 sternritters on his own before Haschwaldt and Uryu step in along with the other RG.
I want to see Ichibei in battle, since he seems to be made out to be the strongest shinigami we've seen in the series, minus Yamamoto.
aizen already fucked with yhwhs perception of time. he could be under kyoka suigetsu already. either way we are in for some mindfuckery. and i love it.
You know what, I wouldn't fucking mind reading non-cleaned pages. Instead we get shitpanda and niggerstream shitting everything up with their photoshop filters.
>lack of skill
are you shitting me?
Urahara is a piece of shit. If he was so powerful he wouldn't be jerking off on the side lines.
Nobody on /a/ likes Urahara anymore. He's a mary sue who's only purpose is to propel the plot. he has no character.
All your waifu are trash.
i didnt notice that. thanks anon
But Ulquiorra, you're waifu is my waifu.
Sandals-and-socks has no character? Yeah right.
The most double-faced, manipulative and charismatic character there was before the SS arc has no character.
Your bullshit aside, the reason why Urahara hasn't done friggin' nothing since then is that, as EVERYONE knows already, he's the other main villain and Aizen's counterpart (Aizen is "muh necessary evil", Urahara's just bored).
This along with Ichigo's royal connections is Kubo's worst kept secret in all of the mango a la OBITOBI and just like then, everyone got it like in 2006 or so.
Every other out-of-character move from him would result in cockblocking his reveal too early (which is probably something Kubo planned for years and he aspergically refuses to change or retcon it, just like Kishimoto did) so he's just "using" it as a plot device 'til then.
Urahara's the Pariston in this bitch if you get the comparison.
>What, is Ichigo wearing his power as an armor/weapon on his skin?
Wasn't that how his Fullbring worked?
Maybe mixed up with some Hierro?
its his keikaku
It was changed because Kubo wanted to use the 'Everything But The Rain' title for the flashback arc.
Also The Stand Ablaze is a song's title, which is Aizen's 'personal' song (Kubo assigned some songs to characters).
The coolest song is Ishida's 'Idioteque' by Radiohead.
>Ice age is coming, let me hear both sides
>KUBO's theme songs.
doesn't KUBO seem like a /mu/tard to you too? always tought that, but joking aside he's got pretty good and broad musical taste for a mangaka (dunno, opposite examples might be araki which is into bretty good 70s prog rock or hoshino which listens solely to soundtracks).
wonder if we'll ever manage to make a thread about that on /a/ without korean idol songs spawning everywhere.
hollow mask was cool. too bad he might not be able to use it ever again
>quincies meet up with king

>questioning our great and beloved Soul King
>The origin of Chad's powers were explained, that isn't a retcon.
no, chad's arm now appears with bring light and that didn't happen until the fullbringers were introduced and explained. it's a retcon.
some of the old data book interviews make it pretty clear that he just rereads bleach and picks out old loose ends to spin into new developments. the only thing I think he ever legit planned out in terms of foreshadowing was Ishida showing up in the chpater with Don Kannonji and that wasn't that long term a plant
a character even more useless than Walter from Hellsing
Ryuken fucking where.
in our hearts, anon. in our hearts
I hope he shows up and mops the floor with some sternritter and reunites with Isshin
I always thought that was pretty random.
Has it been said if he lost his Quincy powers when he gave Uryu his?
Ryuuken? No he just shot Uryuu in really specific place in the chest that apparently turned his powers back on after the glove sealed them. Ryuuken never lost his powers, he's just refused to use them for nearly 20 years
>Ichigo's dad is a former SS captain

Why was this retconned/changed? This actually made sense and wasn't stupid convoluted nonsense. White shouldn't exist at all. Zangetsu shouldn't have shit to do with bach or quincies, there isn't even any mention of quincies having spirits inside them. Does Uryuu have random conversations with the Bach inside him? If Kubo wanted to make Ichigo a quincy he could have just said his mom was fodder with no combat ability and that's why Fisher killed her.
I will never understand the Kubo.
what a slut
>doesn't KUBO seem like a /mu/tard to you too?
The series is named after a Nirvana song.
Kubo likes his beats. Music, fashion, and twists are Kubo's shit.
Because it didn't particularly make sense for him to hollowfy like he did originally. Urahara made not of this when he said the mask formed first. Usually the mask is the last thing to form.
>Why was this retconned/changed? This actually made sense and wasn't stupid convoluted nonsense.
Right. Gotei Captain meets random, regular chick who catches his eye why? Having decent taste in movies? Wearing nice dress?
>White shouldn't exist at all. Zangetsu shouldn't have shit to do with bach or quincies, there isn't even any mention of quincies having spirits inside them. Does Uryuu have random conversations with the Bach inside him?
No other beings but Shinigami have been ever mentioned to be capable of jinzen, which is essential for spirit manifestation. Starrk was a little different but it was due to his unique nature and also due to Hollows being essentially able to manifest their nature externally by default.
So, no jinzen = no inner world = no spirit being manifestation for Quincies.
>If Kubo wanted to make Ichigo a quincy he could have just said his mom was fodder with no combat ability and that's why Fisher killed her.
Yeah, because that's where superhybrids come from from fodder.
Also that made literally no sense from the very beginning. Why would GF go after regular human? To eat Ichigo? Then why wasn't Ichigo eaten?
You basically don't like the answers so you bullshit that there were no valid questions to begin with.
It's not that bad, just look at the last panel, nigger's just showing Kubo how real blacks roll.
Urahara said something about the mask forming first being a sign that the person was resisting the transformation, not that it was some incredibly abnormal thing that never happened.
Could also be that the translation I read was shit.
[that] jerk/punk/bastard/rascal/etc.., [the] moment he received my thrust

That's not what a retcon is. It would only be a retcon if there had been some alternate explanation of Chad's power in the past that contradicts the current one. I'm pretty sure Chad's release looks the same as it always has.
Fullbring isn't a thing. Chad has powers. The powers aren't fullbring. Fullbring is now a thing. Chad's powers are now Fullbring. We are expected to believe that they had always been Fullbring. This changes CONTINUITY, RETROACTIVELY.
>The powers aren't fullbring.
This is where you fuck up. Where was it said what his powers actually where?
>They came from Ichigo! Probably. I guess.
>Or Hogyouku! I think it was Hogyouku! Maybe.
>Well, for sure we only know they are similar to those of a Hollow.
Basically it was guesswork all the time.
>Suddenly Fullbringers, Chad's powers mechanics explained.
This is not a retcon, this is revelation.
Fuck it, I'm going to sleep.
and then suddenly visible features of his powers that were never present become present to suit the new explanation. That was the point of >>115332718
>Having decent taste in movies? Wearing nice dress?
Possibly. I'd accept a situation like the White attack, but without the hollow fusion gigai nonsense at the end.
>So, no jinzen = no inner world = no spirit being manifestation for Quincies.
I will accept that answer, but it sounds like mental gymnastics.
>Yeah, because that's where superhybrids come from, from fodder.
The point is that it's shinigami+quincy, their power levels don't both need to be off the charts, that one of them is captain level is already pretty special. If it was that important, where is our explanation of Zaraki's god strength? How come Yuzu and Karen don't have Ichigo tier powers?
>Why would GF go after regular human? To eat Ichigo? Then why wasn't Ichigo eaten?
Sensed Ichigo, saw his mom and assumed what he sensed was her, ate her without noticing there was a toddler still alive under her body. I think that's how it was originally explained. GF said he didn't even know Ichigo was there at the time.
forgot to quote
>Aizen Shikai; control all 5 senses

>Le niggastream XD
Yeah, nah. Apart from "kingin like kong" and some exaggerated shit, they're not bad at all. They're 100x better than mangapanda and any other shit tier group that might translate it.
It's like you guys can't take even a bit of slang. Do you sperg like this if someone says "Yo, wuzz guud homie" irl?
wow how fucking tiny is rukia. or is aizen that tall
No I'm pretty sure they would just shoot the nigger before asking questions.
Mangapanda's just plain bad at what they do but for whatever it's worth they are trying, mangastream willfully puts out unacceptable material in spite of their ability to do otherwise. Neither is really an ideal product. They compromise their translation for the sake of totally unnecessary localization.
Admiral Maynard, feel the pain of Issho and Sabo's victory.
Rukia is ridiculously tiny, even the smallest of Asians feel like a black guy when she plays with their cock.
The people who are against the localisation are heavily outweighed by the normal people who read at mangastream. Since they are aged 13-24. they don't mind seeing slang etc. The only people that get so flustered about it, that I've seen, are the recluses.
Sometimes they really go ott but it's not enough to dsicredit them as a good group.
dingdingding. this is the correct answer.
Rukia was designed solely to appease pedophile anime fans. She weighs a canon 60lbs (about as much as an 8-year-old girl.)
but since shes a spirit thats pure energy
so what she really weighs is alot less
it's like if you wanted a sandwich for lunch and you had your choice of two places to go. On the one hand the one place you know has issues getting your order right and 9 times out of 10 your sandwich just won't have what you asked for on it, but then the alternative is the place where you know for a fact that the server will bring you exactly what you ordered only right as he puts the sandwich down on the table he'll remove the top bread, take a topping out and just throw it on the ground, place the bread back and then expect you to act like nothing just happened.
And it's not about being against "localization" it's about the fact that it serves absolutely no purpose and no one ever asked for it.
just, why even take the extra effort to ruin what was at one point a perfectly fine working version?
Deliberate word choice that fails to convey the simple meaning of a line is poor communication and that is definitively a bad translation. It's not like there's no place for slang in translation, but they don't use their slang in any kind of an appropriate way. They don't use it where appropriate for character voice. They don't use it to replace obscure or obtuse Japanese idiom. They don't use it to appeal to an audience. They just fuck with lines every once and a while for no discernible reason beyond perhaps boredom or selfsatisfaction.
Weird I never knew kirinji had that quirk where he ends certain words in katakana instead of hiragana. Whats up with that?
what did aizen see in the espada that made him think they could take on all those captains
honestly I always felt like Aizen never even meant to raise an army, he just sort of kept accumulating arrancar from experiments while trying to figure out how to get the hougyoku to work the way he wanted
You only have one Momo after all.
Can hollow souls be used to make the key?
Menos are huge masses of hollow souls after all.
arrancars have alot more.
>Aizen Banaki; destroy all 5 senses
So, Tousen's bankai, but permanent? Not like it stopped people to bitchslap Tousen before...
MangaPanda wrote "he" when a character talked about a confirmed female character (or at least one where it was never questioned, so the character had no reason to think otherwise).
They don't exactly "try" sometimes.
>This never happened
What do you mean?
Also, that's totally Aizen, unless the location of the eyepatch in that chapter was changed in the volume release like the other one was.
Forget Bleach, have Latias!
One needs a spirit enriched land to make the key, the souls are just a minor formality. The designated "spirit enriched land" changes every now and then. If not the Aizen could've made a key with no issue.
Speaking of Aizen, am I the only one bothered by the fact that he made a hollow as powerful, or exceeding himself 20 years ago and then scrapped all research relating to him in favour of weaker, but more stable arrancar?
It never happened because the battle started sooner than he expected.
That.... That actually makes the most sense I've heard for his Bankai theory. That would have been the reason he didn't use it in the battles with S.S. and Ichigo because it DESTROYS the senses of all around INCLUDING Aizen himself.
>Bleached White Pages
i'd imagine he's talking about the fact that Shunsui never sent Ichigo back to see them before the fight like the page says he would
Yeah pretty much since Tousens just blocked senses from those in the bubble Aizen would be that on a massive scale and effecting himself permanently.
Also could be how he anti hero saves the day and Bankai' the main bad dudes
So which one is the real Soul King?
I'm thinking either Ouetsu or the big Monk, can't recall his name.
>and then scrapped all research relating to him in favour of weaker, but more stable arrancar?
Yes. Because Shiro was unstable and couldn't be controlled.
We already saw the "real Soul King".
Level 1 reader.
Everything in Soul Palace is a fake.
>"Their combined power is greater than all of the Gotei 13 put together"
And all they will do is beat these four "Elite" Sternritter before jobbing to either Toofsy or Yhwach.
And touch, Tousen's left your sense of touch allowing you to feel pain.
Imagine trying to attack someone with you sword and being not only unable to tell if you hit or missed, but unable to tell that you didn't have a sword arm anymore.
>Aizen used his Bankai to kill Yhwach's senses right after he was born for shit and giggles.
Why does seireitei even have gate guardians if they never do anything? are they just there to keep all the ghetto rabble out of the nice end of town?
where do they even find exactly 4 equally huge guys? Do they get to be huge when they take the job or did they get the job because they are huge? Why are there no huge people other than the guards? Why, kubo?
Having their combined power be greater than the Gotei 13 seems fucking weak, considering the entire Gotei just jobbed like bitches.
The same place they found the giant dog and Komamura, probably.
remember dragon ball z. They had an android with the combined strength of the red ribbon army, and they jobbed pretty hard
