No, the point is that it's fucking boring. We've seen this type of "nothing you do will work because I always have something to counter it with" comeback with Aizen a billion times, repeating it on another villain is shitty Kubowriting.

literally the worst. At least it was kinda interesting when he had the power to give or retake powers. Now he apparently has the power to never lose. Because he said so.

>>118224768

Why do you fuckers think there were "special war potentials"

These are the guys that Yhwach would have trouble fighting

Ichigo - has the power of main character
Aizen - has the power of fuck you
Kenpachi - has the power of murder

and I forget the rest unless they were never named, but its likely Urahara is also one because he's way too smart

Learn to read. Juha can restore his powers. We've known this since chapter 607. No one can take anything away from him. You can call it lame or whatever but to say it's an asspull is just inaccurate.

I just want a shinigami who's shikai allows him to generate cups and manipulate them at will. Countless cups, millions if need be. Porelain, plastic, whatever the situation calls for.

I want that shinigami to show out of nowhere without any introduction, to just start drowning enemies in cups. And for his bankai: mugs. Like cups, but heat resistant.

That guy ought to win it all. Jeff, the shinigami that makes a lot of cups.

>>118224884
Urahara probably isn't a war potential given that Opie ("J") never made any mention of him being a war potential in Hueco Mundo.

Ichigo - his power cannot be stolen, absurdly powerful
Aizen - immortal via hogyoku, broken ability, strong as fuck
Kenpachi - Kubo has basically stated his powerlevel can match anyone he's fighting, strong and broken.

At least one of the SWPs isn't a shinigami. I'm bound to say its Ginjo because of powersharing and that every non-shinigami that isn't Ishida Uryu (who isn't a SWP) is weak as fuck. Halibel is currently the strongest Arrancar. Orihime isn't one. Chad isn't one. That only leaves Ryuken and the Fullbringers. Although I guess technically Ganju isn't a shinigami either...

>Explains why he is mad when getting called an Arrancar then

Cause he doesn't see himself as just being some arrancar anymore, he feels he's more evolved, he doesn't fight like one, he doesn't use ressurecion. He thinks he's above that shit and something special, doesn't mean that he isn't physically and biologically?/soully? an arrancar

I think Rose and Kensei are dead for real though. They were killed by that little shit who plays with his imagination. Rangiku could be either. Last we saw of her she was wounded. That and the fact that she's a fairly popular character with a lot of screen time tells me she's likely alive but who knows, this is the last arc.

Also, which hair color do you guys prefer for her? Regular blonde like in the manga or strawberry blonde like in the anime? I prefer strawberry blonde.
>>
>>118228017
Gremmy's powers stop working if he stops concentrating on the target. So he has to keep imagining them dead or they won't be dead anymore, just like Yachiru with the cookies.

It's like /pol/ met /a/
>>
>>118228017
Strawberry blonde is much better, for sure.

Also, even if he weren't fighting the final boss, the paintbrush guy with the name I can never keep in my head was destined to lose. He literally just started throwing and explaining his powers in his first fight, that is a fucking death sentence.

Everyone in this thread complaining about Yhwach winning are chumps. He's the fucking BBEG--he's got plot armor. Why do you honestly think anyone except Ichigo with the help of literally everyone and a need to save his friends because Yhwach is about to kill everything can stop him?
>>
>>118227170
Arrancars are shitty and useless. Might as well just keep Harribel in the rape dungeon.
>>
So right now who's left from the Zero Division? The fat chick, the spiderchick, and the sauna guy right? And now the Elite 4 Quincies are back, presumably for Ichigo and his friends to fight.
>>
>>118227373
Its never been explained but its probably reasonable to assume they don't use hollow powers because its forbidden in G13 and probably a condition upon returning to SS.
>>
>>118228462
I'm not one of them, but it's stupid HOW he's not losing. It's like he's just saying "No, that power doesn't work, I'm immune to it. Nuh uh, that one doesn't either."

You're fucking retarded. Yhwach forced the arrancar into his army. Any arrancar/hollow was killed mercilessly meaning they were seen as niggers. Ivan as a nig sees himself above that (despite the fact that he is one) and part of a special breed of Yhwach's army.

I think no matter how powerful the enemy is, he can use the 'Balance' to literally equalize the playing field or maybe "tip the scales" to his favor by controlling the reality around him and his opponent or increasing his strength/reiatsu to be able to cut the enemy (as seen against Jackie Chan Wolverine)

He technically didnt lose to Yamamoto. Yamamoto couldn't kill Yhwach and it was probably due to the Almighty ability.

Maybe his powers weren't mature enough back then when he looked like Fake-Zangetsu since he was still growing.

Juha might of been still giving some miracles to those disabled faggots who got to live for an hour.

Also, Yamamoto is pretty close to a deity himself considering that in all religions, the Sun is considered to be God.

Not only that but it's not like he's invincible. He still isn't at the transcendent level like Butterflaizen and edgy Ichigo were seeing as how he couldn't sense the reiatsu of Monk's Shikai and got BTFO for 90% of the fight. And Aizen was still able to fuck with Yhwach.

So is aizen the only one that managed to do something that ywach wasnt able to forsee?

That's a lie. The Monk was jobbing Yaweh the entire fight until he pulled he used his bullshit lackeys.

And that also brings up the question as to why the Monk didn't use his powers on his lackeys. He could've stomped them in fucking seconds, and then finished off Yaweh. It's not like he wasn't informed of what they could do. Fucking kubo

But he doesnt always have a counter. Anything he sees is counterable as an ability. The only way to win, therefore, is an ability of nothing but raw physical power and speed. That means the top two candidates that don't rely on beams or abilities for 99% of their combat ability are also the two strongest in Soul Society and one is on the warpath at this moment.

It was always pretty obvious Ichibe couldn't really kill Ywach - if you kill the final boss, the series ends, and there's obviously a lot left to resolve.

There is one question though - if Hollows are poison to Quincies, then why doesn't Ivan's Hollow power destroy him? He has at least some Hollow reiatsu in him, and just some was enough to nullify the bankai stealing emblem things.
>>
>>118230665

No he was unable to use his sword or Quincy medallion. Juha himself was fine.
>>
>>118230757
Hollows are poison to Quincy but not the other way around. Meaning that while Quincy couldn't steal the resurrecciones, they were able to make Arrancar/Quincy hybrids instead
>>
>>118226254
Unlikely. He knew about uryu succeeding juha before even the other quincy did, got to lead his own expeditionary force, and was tasked with holding off ichigo during the invasion.

Opie was priviledged even smong the sternritter.
>>
So what matchups are we gonna have besides the obvious Ichigo vs Yhwach?

I can't even remember which quincies are left, but we still have yet to see the bankais of Kyouraku, Ukitake, Urahara and Yoruichi. Also I guess Grimmjow must have acquired a Segunda Etapa or else he's gonna get shitted on.
>>
>>118230823
obviously ichigo vs Haschwald and Uryuu. Maybe Urahara and co. go up against the OP elite stern ritter and Urahara uses his bankai

>>
>>118230815

I understand you logic, but it doesn't seem to work. If you give an arrancar Quincy powers, they are Quincies. I suppose you could say "Because humanity is dominant in an arrancar, they are able to become Quincies" - but if that was the case, then giving the captains with stolen bankai hollow-pills wouldn't be enough, because humanity predominated in them even after the pills. Also, the antipathy between hollow and Quincy doesn't seem to be exclusive to the Quincy - note how White immediately left his fight with Isshin when he sensed Masaki, the Quincy.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned this yet. How the hell are Ichigo and co supposed to get to the Royal Realm?
They're not taking the kido route, instead opting for the direct route by flying there, but here's a catch, they don't have a King's Key at present. Unless Ichigo's entire attire is a King's Key then the one he had was destroyed by Candy's Galvano Javelin.
Did the RG make him into an honorary member, or something? Did he too get one grafted into his bones for good measure by absorbing its reishi somehow?

Cause Ivan's not a Quincy, he's an arrancar (hollow) so it's not poison for him to wield a quincy cross or whatever it was that he had and which was given to him as part of joining (being forced into really) Yhwach's army or whatever

Liltotto said the girl group was naturally the stronger group of quincies so it's more likely that she's alive. Also, Accutrone Colonel Sanders lived and appeared just fine so she should be fine.

I'm pretty sure it was Meninas who said that Liltotto and herself were stronger than the Quincys that Byakuya cut down with Senbonzakura.

Just got caught up after a 2 year break from Bleach. Marathoning it was pretty fun. Question though. After his fight with Bambi Komamura is seen reverting back to a wolf. Is this how he will spend the remainder of his life? I thought he was going to die since he, you know, ripped his fucking heart out. I guess we didn't see what will become of him though so it's still up in the air. If he does survive, does this mean his time as a captain for the G13 is over?

He'd easily be the most dangerous if we ever saw practical uses for any of these powers outside 1-on-1 fights. If Kubo ever got around to showing us how the gotei handled swarms of soldat running around the place, he'd easily have been the most effective person aside from Yama just setting the entire landscape on fire. When he's only trying to smash one little person all his benefits are just wasted. I'm kind of surprised that between him and Bambietta Kubo didn't make a point to emphasize how the fight between the two of them probably should have totaled the entire landscape.

>>118232909
The Almighty power is just a fancy way of saying "Hyper Adaptability". Essentially, since Juha Bach can distribute powers, take away powers, and understand powers, his power would be the ability to become immune to other's powers.

It's much less of an asspull and more of a built up reveal. This also explains why people like Gremmy AKA "The Visionary" just can't overthrow Juha Bach as he is immune to his powers.

The only drawback is that Juha Bach has to see, understand and feel said power happen to himself.

Ichibe's power is the power to cut names, blotch out names, and rename things into something different.

Juha Bach's power is to give power, take power and become immune to other's power once he understands it.

to be fair, I think Anon is 100% incorrect
I don't think it has anything to do with adaptability.
I think it's just that he's doing a hail mary with this assault on the soul king. We know that he basically went into a coma the last time he fought (and, didn't he say covered in darkness?) and so now he's clearly conserving his energy as much as possible, and only using enough power to deal with the opponent at hand.
It's also the reason he has amassed an army when he's so powerful.
He's slowly powering up as he gets closer and closer to his goal, where before he wasn't even willing to FIGHT.
I think the almighty is just literally, his might cannot be overcome.

It doesn't have to be explained by the user. Juha Bach just has to figure out said power himself. Like for example, Juha Bach didn't understand how Aizen's power worked and when he went over to talk to Aizen, Juha Bach was affected by such.

However, once Juha Bach understood what happened to him, he instantaneously was able to adapt himself with Aizen's power.

It's fucking stupid, and I dont even care.

The writer basically wrote a character that wins, because "I win." is his ability. Why is he strong? Because. That's his power.

Not because of abilities, or technique, or counters, or ANYTHING based on the concepts written about in the series (bakudou, shunpo, reiatsu, reishi manipulation....)...no, he wins, because he does.

THAT IS SO FUCKING BORING AND ANNOYING.

What's worse, is that obviously, none of that will matter, because, of course, because, Ichigo will win. He'll win, not because of techniques, counters, logic, or being smart, clever, stronger, faster, better-he'll win because the other guy's 'I Win" button wont work againts Ichigo's hidden main character "I Win." button.

FUCK THIS WHOLE STORY.

>>
>>118233971
I personally hate that.

It's completely out of reason and logic. Why bother explaining all the tenents of the fucking series and how each one works, like reiatsu, reishi, shunpo, sonido, and spellcasting with bakudou, and then just go "FUCK THAT SHIT, HE WINS BECAUSE, HE'S JUST SO COOL.".

it's like a teenagers's vision on coolness.

Seriously, if at least they explained a reason why he's so fucking omnipotent, I'd be down for it. Just...explain that... "as a higher dimensional being, he's actually untouchable by lower dimensional folks- they're just harming his avatar for lower dimensional interaction, and that he can just recreate it at will out of pure reishi. He's literally sentient reishi, and as thus, beyond physical entities."

Done. You establish rules, and how they are broken or surpassed. You just dont go.... I dont know...."FRESH" and win.
>>
>>118233940
His power was pretty clearly explained.

He becomes immune to any ability he understands. He can understand anything if sees it. The solution?

Hit him with a power he hasn't seen before.

"The Almighty" is obviously hyperbole.
>>
Maybe that's why Kenpachi was a war potential. Because his power is so high that it can't be understood.
>>
>>118234066
What the fuck is 'understanding', and WHY is he understanding it?

Does that mean that by understanding punches, he becomes immune to punching and physical force? If he understands a sword slash, which is super fucking simple to comprehend, he cant be slashed because LOL IMMUNITY?

That's fucking stupid.
Maybe if they explained, within the context of the series -bakudou-, reishi, reiatsu manipulation, that he's doing SOMETHING to counter other people's skills? COOL.

He's literally going "Naw, dawg. Naw."

>>118233977
I'm not sure where you guys are getting this "I win" button is Yhwaxch's power thing from, cause it['s not

The ability to understand all aspects of something just likely lets Yhwach know it's weaknesses, limits, range, how to counter it, the best way to counter it and whatever, it's not just some "I get it now" and the opponent just dies out of nowhere, Ichibei just wasn't fast enough to react to a holy arrow attack (not entirely sure if that's what it was but I'm guessing).

It's kinda like a much faster and improved version of how that espada guy studied the fuck out of Renji and Uryu and came up with ways to fight them, in this case Yhwach just gets an understanding faster and likely also knows how to counter stuff using his own regular abilities/quincy power.

>>118234136

Again, what if there's nothing to 'understand', like just a dude doing punches and slashes like Kenpachi?

Will he UNDERSTAND his sword swings and just become immune to physical damage?
>>
>>118234136
There is NO WAY to "counter" the power of Ichibei's bankai. There is no way to reject it or get your name back. Except Bach does it anyway, because his power is an automatic counter to whatever happens to him, regardless of what that is and whether it makes any sense to be able to undo it.

Guys, if you read the chapter where his past as a blind kid still let him do miracles, he clearly says that because of his godlike power people around him started calling him YUHHABAHHA. So his almighty power doesn't come from its name, it's the other way around. Monk erasing his "nickname" had no effect because his asspull power is not related to it.
>>
>>118234251
He could probably come up with the perfect counter to his fighting style. But there still isn't sufficient evidence to suggest he can just make himself immune to basic physical harm.
>>
>>118233390
>However, once Juha Bach understood what happened to him, he instantaneously was able to adapt himself with Aizen's power.

But he didnt. Even a while after meeting Aizen, he still wouldnt understand his power. When about to leave SS after the first invasion, he was like "He must have thrown off my sense of time or something", he clearly didnt understand Aizens powers well enough.


My theory is that the war potentials were primarily the people whose powers were a mystery to YHWH, so he wanted to personally meet an study them. As such, i think we can safely write off anyone who he had a chance to meet and didnt. That includes everyone who was in SS and wasnt visited by him.
>>
>>118234293
How can you not understand this when it was spelled out? In the quasi-philosophical realm of Bleach, not having a name means something has no power. That's all there is to it.
>>
>>118234136
>"I get it now" and the opponent just dies out of nowhere

This is exactly what happened. Bach went "I understand how your power works", and Monk's power instantly stopped working and then he died.

He'll gain an understanding of how Kenpachi fights, how he swings, when he swings, how much force behind it, how his torso, legs, whatever else move when he's about to do something, and also the best time to strike, when to dodge, when to go in for the kill, etc.

>There is NO WAY to "counter" the power of Ichibei's bankai

Except you don't know that, everything has limits and nothing and no one has absolutely no weaknesses anon. Yhwach's ability let's him get a grasp of that. For all we know there's a certain reiatsu vibration you can achieve to get the black/white off, a certain way of changing/shaping/using reiatsu to make the black and name come off, whatever, Yhwach just happens to know it because his ability lets him understand and know it.

>>118234328
>Bach went "I understand how your power works", and Monk's power instantly stopped working and then he died

Yhwach likely just used the knowledge he gained to do something to counter the Bankai thing, everything has weakness and a way around, to stop it or counter it, Yhwach just exploits that.

>AFTER Monk specifically spent a while explaining how his power makes it impossible for Bach to win

Lots of people wll tell you how it's impossible to counter their attack, how they're power has no limits, can't be countered, how it's perfect "this" or "that", blah, blah, blah, doesn't make it true, not sure why you think there's no way around something cause the guy who has it says you can't. For example, Shinji sure as heck thought his sense thing was impossible to counter, Aizen sure as fuck proved him wrong. That Fear quincy sure as heck thought his ability was impossible to counter too, and where is he now, he's dead.
>>
>>118234319
Bach had absolutely no name when he started using his almighty powers, people gave him a name AFTER that.

>>118234586
>Yhwach likely just used the knowledge he gained to do something to counter the Bankai thing, everything has weakness and a way around, to stop it or counter it, Yhwach just exploits that.

Great, fucking tell me what the weakness was, because the way it happened and the way Monk explained it I'm not seeing any. Even the best you can do is say "for all we know" or "everything has a weakness and Yhwach exploited it", and that's a really, really bad defense.
>>
>>118234596

>>
>>118234674
>Great, fucking tell me what the weakness was

We don't know yet, they'll probably explain it next week, but the key is that Yhwach knows however. But not sure why you see this as any different than the other times we got no explanation for stuff though. For example, how did Aizen counter Shinji's sense switch, we have no idea, all we can throw out is that maybe he used Kyoka Suigetsu in some manner, but it's all just theory

>that's a really, really bad defense.

Why? Cause you say so?

There are lots of examples of a character thinking that their ability was the best, the strongest, impossible to defeat, and time and time again they got beat when the protagonist (and sometimes antagonist, like Starrk understanding Ukitake's shikai) or whoever they were facing, understood and got a firm grasp of the opponent and their ability and found a way to counter it and beat it. Shinji, Fear quincy, Barragan, Mask de Masculine, that arrancar that Uryu beat back in Mexico with the wings and that Mayuri brought back to life, and a shit load of others, including those who's powers though they didn't hype them as being the most powerful, were very tricky and you needed to understand things quickly if you didn't wanna die, Kyoraku and Ukitake.
>>
>>118234674
Juha has the perfect defense against the Monks power, the ability to restore his own power and name.

All you're doing is jumping to conclusions and assuming the worst.
>>
>>118234777
And that's the point for still being able to use his A despite being renamed by monk.
>>
>>118234817
>Why? Cause you say so?

No, it really is. Saying 'everything must have a weakness and that's how a character won, by exploiting', is a terrible explanation for how a character beat another one. Every single explanation you've came up with for how a character managed to beat another character is baseless speculation (don't even try to pretend 'there's a certain reiatsu vibration you can achieve to get the black/white off, a certain way of changing/shaping/using reiatsu to make the black and name come off," have any basis in anything), that's a major issue. Even if we DO get an explanation for how Bach won next week, while definitely better, that's still pretty bad, because a month-long fight should be resolved by things introduced and used in the fight, not just explained away afterwards.

> But not sure why you see this as any different than the other times we got no explanation for stuff though. For example, how did Aizen counter Shinji's sense switch, we have no idea, all we can throw out is that maybe he used Kyoka Suigetsu in some manner, but it's all just theory

Essentially, I don't see how this is any different then Monk getting hit with a nuke then dying, then Bach explaining afterward that his power is actually to summon nuclear missiles, because both are bullshit ways to end a fight.

In practice, this is similar to Adam VS say Lucifer.

Adam named all things under the sun, as allowed by God (in this case, Ichibei)

Satan has his own intrinsic nature. Knowing his name allows one to understand him, but his name is a natural continuation of his existence as an aspect of God. In this case YHWH.

Which is apt since Lucifer passes himself for God.

so it's bad, because you say it's bad? NYou're not backing up anything you're saying, you're just repeating the same thing

>how a character managed to beat another character is baseless speculation

U wot m8?

Rukia countered Fear Quincy by freezing herself to the point that his fear couldn't affect or have a noticable affect on her, she or he even says it

Uryu beat that arrancar chick by understanding how her wings I think it was, vibrated at a certain speed, Uryu then promptly made a blade of reiatsu or whatever that vibrated even faster and used that to beat her, he also says so

Starrk "studied" and observed both Kyoraku and Ukitake, he even says so and Kyoraku and Ukitake even point out how he picked up on stuff fast, Ukitake's shikai after like three shots (then Starr pointed out how based on his understanding of Ukitake's shikai that it can't take multiple shots, that's when Starrk used cero metralleta, he even says that's why he's doing it) and Kyoraku's irooni game

Renji noticed how Mask got stronger and healed the more the James cheered (weakness), he even tried to kill James to stop Mask from getting stronger/healing, he even says it (pic related)

>don't even try to pretend 'there's a certain reiatsu vibration

That part is speculation, never denied that, doesn't mean that there isn't in fact a way to counter Ichibei's bankai and that Yhwach doesn't know exactly how
>>
>>118235135
>>118235208
If you don't understand that having things happen then coming up with explanations for how they happened after the fact is bad writing I don't know how else to explain it to you. If you have to resort to speculation about why one character beat another character in a fight, there's a really big problem there. I'm not talking about any of the past fights, I'm talking about this one. The only justification anybody has provided so far with how Bach won this fight is speculation about weaknesses and saying it will probably get explained later, and that's bad writing. I legitimately don't know any other way to explain it.

That's what I'm trying to fucking say. If there is, it should've been introduced before he used it to win.If there isn't, and Bach just won anyway, that's even worse, because it means Bach's power is legitimately a "fuck you I win" button and he beat Ichimonji just because. The fact that you cannot provide any evidence beyond speculation is the best demonstration of all my issues with this chapter.

>>118235276
What is a cliffhanger?

Its a weekly series, of course some things happen and are explained the following week.

Nevermind the fact that we know all Quincy abilities come from YHWH. He gave them, they happen when he gives a piece of his soul.

He was named because he has that capability, not the other way around.

All that was shown prior to the fact. Perhaps we will have a more in-depth explanation, but every Quincy who talked about how YHWH gave them their powers did so knowingly. He understands who his powers are given to, and what they do. Everything has been foreshadowed here.

The cross and the sword are not his powers, so they can be taken away. Not something intrinsic to a being that has no equal, no other known instances.

Yhwach has the ability to grant himself lost power.

>>
>>118235338
I don't have this problem. I just take what I'm explicitly told, read between the lines, take in subtext and cues from the art, and use my imagination, and I end up with a pretty coherent understanding of everything that goes on. I do not experience any disconnect while reading Bleach, because I insert possibilities to make connections between characters, mechanisms, and events. I'm never left feeling, "why did this happen this way? there was no indication", because the art is so communicative and the subtext is so heavy that I have a lot of material to draw conclusions from, even if things aren't outright narrated.
>>
>>118235338

Look, as much as I think these past few chapters were bullshit Bachs powers were adequately explained. It was stated many chapters ago that so long as he understands a power it loses its effect on him. At the same time, not only did Aizens power work on him but old Yama had the potential to kill him (presumably because he didnt understand the full extent of Zanka no Taichi) hence why Yama is now dead. New Bach got a chance to read him from the sidelines at full power while Yama got worn down by Lloid who I think was also bullshit too.

The last few chapters were full of shit though because it didnt show Monk and Bach on equal footing or something similar. This was a stereotypical Bleach fight where the winner sandbagged while the loser explained his power which plays into Bachs dumb power.

Yes its a shitty power but it was already introduced sufficiently. The storytelling can be much better though.

1. Don't trust the mangapanda translation.

2. Yhwach apparently has the ability to see things in many dimensions and fully comprehend the mechanisms and conclusions of what is happening. His eyes do a weird thing when he is explicitly using this power. It seems like he does get an extra pair of pupils.

I just feel that in a series where characters info dump their powers, then act like full retards (sending mooks by the thousands to die, not going full power right away, explaining their power) combined with the sheer volume of lying both from character we know could be bullshitting and from unreliable sources (narration and info dumps from characters who 'don't know the real truth') the series becomes a complete clusterfuck where nothing can be taken as truth or real ever, because at a moments notice (rather masterfully I guess), a few lines from the 'latest truth talker' can change everything.

I just don't like this kind of writing because there's always some long off master mind or liar pulling everyone along and it's technically perfectly fine from a writing standpoint.

I beg to differ.

Kubo's main sin is the glaciar pacing, that's for sure.

>>118247521

>>
>>118247668
the issue is when idiots try to make it sound like kubo ~can't~ draw different faces. He very very clearly can, the choice to make certain characters with certain faces is just a matter of pumping out the kinds of characters that will do well with his readers. There's no other reason we've gotten a Byakuya and Renji clone every arc. It's because the fans like the generic cold an wild pretty boy combination, fans like the generic inflatable chest bimbo, fans like the angry faced loli. But when it comes to the comedy and occasional freakshow characters you'll notice Kubo just does whatever he wants and almost always far from the generic pretty faces he sticks to for the sake of readership. (Szayel may have been the one big exception to that, and Aaronierro if we count Kaien's face)

I'm the first to admit my favorite things have problems. Sometimes I don't notice them myself and even when others point it out it doesn't bother me but that doesn't mean I won't admit its potentially a flaw that can turn some people off.

Same face is same face though, regardless of the reason. If anything its more of an indictment on Kubo that he's willing to pump out generic faces for the sake of fan service when he can do better.

Why did destroying his body cause his imagination to "reach its limit" How come Yachiru's cookie bones went away when he lost focus been then he claimed that the meteor would stick around even if he died? I could go on.
Also, as an aside, his imagination generally sucked. I want skyscraper sized regenerating acid demons and rapid fire nuke launchers. Not lava and machine guns.

>>
>>118251907

They did explain it. What he sees, he counters. it's literally how it sounds. It's probably due to his level of reiatsu and the only clear weakness will be physical speed and force which the old guy in charge of soul society had in droves. It's just he got played like a deck of cards and Ywatch knew how he'd act. Problem with guys like Ichigo is that he has Quincy power, Hollow power and Shinigami power all in one package and is effectively uncounterable when he goes all out, and with Kenpachi is the sheer combat tolerances he pressures. Think about EVERY fight that Kenpachi ever had before Gremmy and how his fight went. He is literally nothing but a powerhouse and his release does nothing but ease his cutting into foes. It has no counter because it doesn't have a scary ability like 4 different states with different damage abilities or the power to totally remove all abilities by wiping out your name. It's just sheer brute force and a brute force multiplier. Ywatch's ability will be solely against those weird things like Aizen and Wabisuke where it has an additional effect.

All the special potentials we know about are purely about physical power and I imagine thats how Ywatch was wrecked before. He has no solid counter against it other than to meet the force and pray he wins in the tug of war, something Ichigo and Kenpachi both excel at with similar asspulls.

Quincy literally get hunted by Hollows because massive reiatsu which is delicious.

Turn reiatsu into attacks to kill monsters.

Shinigami show up and tell them to stop that shit because lolbalance. Don't offer an alternative.

Quincy continue because Shinigami don't offer them a place in Soul Society as guests or whatever.

Shinigami decide to genocide them because lol.

Quincy fight back.

Shinigami lay the smack down and kill 99% of Quincy. Leave Uryuu's lineage and Ywatch alive with a few other potentials by accident.

Ywatch wants revenge against the guys who wiped out his entire clan.

I can't fucking blame him personally. Shinigami had the chance to solve shit but they were dicks. Stick a few decent shinigami as full time guardians of the Quincy and give them the option to be peaceful instead of going ' Let them eat you or we will kill your shit' as the sole ultimatum.

Aizen was just being a douche but the Quincy probably didn't even consider a war with Soul Society and were just surviving.

Given that his plan involves the Soul King, I somehow doubt his motivations are as simple as "muh revenge".
>>
>>118258131

Gremmy was constantly under assault from Kenpachi. He couldn't even reliable imagine himself as invulnerable against Kenpachi, let alone apply his imagination against him. Also remember his imagination backfired quite often. He couldn't imagine things he didn't know about and stuff like acid monsters and nukes would also most likely kill him if he didn't imagine them perfectly right. They all said Gremmy was literally the strongest amongst them and he would probably shit all over anyone else apart from Kenpachi since noone else was even close to aggressive enough to pressure his mind or have the resilience to survive lava or all the other shit that paniced Gremmy into backing off.
>>
>>118258250

>Soul king is king of Soul Society

Whats hard to understand? He wants his revenge against Soul Society as a whole. Not against specific beings. If it was just specific guys, he would have already achieved it in his initial assault.

>>118258182
Better than you apparently.

YHWH accepted the name he was given, and everything that comes with it.

He sees everyone as a tool for his ascendance to true power, because everything belongs to him. All power and all things.

He is the one who chooses who lives and who dies, as proven by the Auswahlen and the fact the Sternritter live and die for him.

Its not that complicated. He arose, tried to achieve it all much like Aizen (whatever Aizen's actual motivations) and was struck down a 1000 years prior.

He rebuilt his forces over nine years, comes back and does it all over again.

All that was told, shown and explained.

The only thing in the dark is why he would choose to have a heir when he is apparently immortal. But seeing as he grows older, he probably intends to bodyswap.

Another peripheral thing is Uryuu's lineage and its specifics, seeing as Kirge was surprised that his power surpassed Uryuu's as observed by Ichigo.

But that's still peripheric to him, his character and motivation.

>>118258368

The Quincys were slaughtered 200 years before Bleach, when YHWH was put down 1000 before. Its unlikely the motivations are one and the same.
>>
>>118258559
I thought it was Soul Society and all of their energy? If he dies the human world stays around.

Yhwach and his powers are just a social commentary. He's like a bank. He gives out loans and takes them back with interest. You can try getting interest from him but the interest he gives you is always lower than the inflation that he artificially produces so he always wins in the end.
>>
>>118258583
You don't need to reiterate everything we know about him anon, I read the manga too.

The only part of your post where you touched on anything to do with his character or motivations is when you said

>He sees everyone as a tool for his ascendance to true power, because everything belongs to him. All power and all things.

and I guess this

>He is the one who chooses who lives and who dies, as proven by the Auswahlen and the fact the Sternritter live and die for him.


That's all well and good.

The thing is, this is all very vague. All we have is that he is pursuing godhood and he thinks everything and everyone belongs to him.

I'm waiting for that to be expanded upon is all.
>>
>>118258853
Since when did we get proper motivation for people anyway? It's still not clear what Aizen wants to do as the Soul King, and both Gin and Tousen were muh revenge, I'm honestly not surprised if Yhwach wants to wreck shinigami and the SK just because he now can.
>>
>>118259007
Aizen's motivations were left intentionally mysterious I think. The thing is Aizen also had the charisma and presence so that he was entertaining enough without it.

I personally think Yhwach is pretty cool, but his personality is just a generic stoic badass. All I'm saying is some added depth could really help him out.
>>
>>118258583
Yhwach has yet to be shown absorbing pure bloods, we know from As Nodt's case that he has no qualms with taking in mixed bloods into the sternritter, so from that we can deduce that a good portion of the sternritter are in fact mixed bloods. Because pure bloods were all but extinct 9 years ago when he used Auswahlen we don't know if he can't absorb them, or if he simply chose not to.

Also it hasn't been explained yet why the Kurosaki siblings were untouched. Yuzu and Karin being left alone might be out of convenience, so that more Quincies can be born in the future. They are first generation mixed bloods and the hollow agent is kept in check, moreover they are immune to its corruption, which is very beneficial to the Quincy bloodline. The twins are the perfect next gen Quincy breeding sows.
>>
>>118258853
The problem is, this is Bleach.

What you see is what you get. Thematically, YHWH is fairly close to Aizen's stated motivations. There is little more one can get from that, aside from megalomania.

Also, there is the problem of this being a weekly. The reader has to want to know more.

As far as it gets, YHWH is the Demiurge who wishes to wreste control away from God by bringing an enlightment of the material rather than the immaterial, when Aizen was closer perhaps to Lucifer (thematically) who wishes to bring enlightment of the soul. Aizen is the Ubermensch, not one who bends in front of great power, but one strives for more, for the expression of free will.

And all of that fits into the greater whole of the purpose of the Soul King and what was alluded to. So we will only know the end purpose when the Soul King finally appears in person rather than in a pair of panels.

All in all, I'm not saying there is a lot. What I am saying is we know all we will for the time being, until the greater plot moves forward.

So far, YHWH is a megalomaniac who wishes to achieve what the people see in his capabilities. And he is effective as a villain because he is just that. A villain.

Aizen alluded to more, and he may or may not come back. Either way, the plot will only move forward once YHWH reaches the Soul King.
>>
>>118259182
I agree Aizen was far more entertaining than Yhwach, I'm just not convinced we'll get a much better reason than explained. Trying to wipe out my entire race and people would've made me mad too.
>>
>>118259193
Masaki was a pure blood. But she had been touched by White, so she was not pure in the strictest sense.

Also, I think YHWH purged the mixed blood and took the best powers for himself out of the pure blooded he did purge, in Masaki's case her Blut Vene, the strongest of all Quincy IIRC.

I guess she was either a mistake or purged of the contamination. As far as the Kurosaki siblings go, the twins were not awakened, and neither was Ichigo. YHWH picked the useful powers out of the lot.

random theory time: Kurosaki means black cape, and YHWH always wears one, including as Zangetsu. He called Ichigo his son, born in the darkness. It may be that Masaki was a true descendant.
>>
>>118259237
Yeah, I get all the symbolic stuff surrounding Bach. I don't think he's bad a character or even a boring one, but I do think he could definitely use more stuff going for him on a personal level. Some sort of conflict in his past that gives us more info about what kind of person he is. I was originally responding the anon who said Yhwach was boring, and I suggested something that I thought could help make his character more interesting.

>Also, I think YHWH purged the mixed blood and took the best powers for himself out of the pure blooded he did purge
At the time of the Auswahlen 9 years ago there were only two remaining purebloods that we know of, Souken and Ryuken Ishida and they both survived. The only known pureblood in his army was Quilge and he was given a special position to match his pedigree. Worthy of note is that Quilge was old, he had either died during the last Quincy war 200 years ago, or at least some time before the Auswahlen since he was privvy to the traditionalist faction.

>the strongest of all Quincy IIRC.
Not the strongest, just exceptionally strong.

>As far as the Kurosaki siblings go, the twins were not awakened, and neither was Ichigo.
Ichigo was active to some level and most likely so is Karin, the only one who is ambiguous is Yuzu, but even she has some measure of power. And the awakening is irrelevant in this case, since Uryu wasn't awakened either and he still became a target of Auswahlen according to Ywhach (but he survived).

>Kurosaki means black cape
Cape in the geographical sense. It means "black lands", which could refer to a whole slew of geographical locations and likely alludes to the place of origin of the Kurosaki branch more than anything (either way I'm convinced that they're descendants of Haschwalth).

Problem is, I actually believe he is boring because of the horrid pacing.

When YHWH was introduced, he moved fast, efficiently, his invasion was a work of art.

And then the pacing went down the drain, with fights lasting for a long time. And the recent fight was good, but is starting to feel stale.

My point is, YHWH is darkness incarnate, the night coming of Soul Society (pretty much always shown during the day, when his fortress is at night and even when days pass, Seireitei is still apparently at night)

But due to the pacing, it kills the effect. He was great because he had no redeeming value. He was there, he killed people, he stood on a level with Old Man Genocide and he tricked him to hell and back. Which was fun, until the action, as usual in Bleach, derived away from him because its spotlight time for the favorite characters and those who did not do much. Hence the powerups and fights for various characters who never do show anything.

This is end time. Sorry for the symbolism rambling, but I believe its all about colour oppositions. Black and White.

YHWH is just there to bring the end in more ways than one, but the pacing fucks him up. He was not boring at the start, but he is becoming so because the sense of urgency of the invasion has disappeared becaus Kubo has to cram as much as he can into this arc.

>>118259814
>Cape in the geographical sense. It means "black lands", which could refer to a whole slew of geographical locations and likely alludes to the place of origin of the Kurosaki branch

Yeah, I felt I was misrembering something here. Nevertheless, there is some sort of visual symbolism, and either way, that was just for the heck of it. Additionally, all Quincys descend from YHWH. So Ichigo descends from him because of course he does (whether directly or not)

As far as the Blut Vene goes, I probably should have said the strongest presently available. And as for the purge, Uryuu is not pure, since his mother was not.
>>
>>118260235
>And as for the purge, Uryuu is not pure, since his mother was not.
Yes, which is why he was targeted.
>Additionally, all Quincys descend from YHWH. So Ichigo descends from him because of course he does (whether directly or not).

From here on out I'm just speculating, but Ichigo is likely very, very close to what can be considered the royal line. Because he's a close relative of the Ishida family who were the leading family, one with money and power in the Quincy world. Assuming one of Masaki's parents was an Ishida traditionally it would be the female that marries in and adopts the family name, so we have grounds to assume that Ichigo's long dead grandmother was the sister of Souken.

I'd argue that Uryuu was awakened since he was probably already training with Souken so he was a sullied Quincy, but much like many things in Bleach, there will probably never be a definitive answer. So I'll concede to the inconsistency, while saying that my guess is that the N was pure yet definitely purged. So it could go either way (and mechanically, YHWH probably can purge any Quincy) but there is no way to have a true answer.

As for Masaki, the wording in her introduction is awkward. She is the sole remaining member of her clan, but appears to have been taken in as a charity case.

And yet, YHWH marks an interest in her son's existence which goes beyond mere interest a Quincy, even one who survived the Auswahlen. He is tainted in many ways after all. So while not impossible, even likely that his lineage is special, its really not easy to tell.

You heard it here first.

>>118261170
Kanae Ishida was dead by the time Uryu began training, Ryuken had broken all ties with the remaining quincy ie. his father and expressly forbid Uryu from making contact with his own grandfather.
He did not forsake the Quincies even after failing Masaki so the only explanation is that something after White broke the camel's back. He keeps a picture of his dead wife with him in his study, hanging over his mirror, he clearly loved her very much and her death affected him deeply.
I find it very unlikely that Uryu made contact with Souken before his mother's death and even then there is evidence that suggests that he wasn't awakened, the lack of Blut for one is very telling in my opinion. All descendants of Quincies are born quincy, this seems to be the only consistent thing in this mess, but not all Quincies are awakened to their powers even if they are using them in some way or form (ESP, reishi manipulation).

>>118261426
I'd like that, but the same character just said Yhwach is the Almighty, so it's hard to believe he needs any balancing and that Haschwalth has anything to do with him coming back every time.
>>
>>118261790
I wonder how Haschwalth will be dealt with. I figured Ishida might be the one to fight him but if he turns then can't Ywach kill him? The future looks bleak for Ishida.
>>
>>118262431
Well who knows there are still plenty of people who have yet to make a move
>>
>>118262691
Wouldn't bet on either of the parents stepping up to fight Yhwach, if that's what you had in mind.

>>118262973
Don't you mean Haschwalth

>>118261762
As far awakening goes, its kind of uncertain what point makes it real.

Ostensibly, Souken wished to distance the Ishidas from YHWH (when he decided to is anyone's guess) since his Letzt Still is very different from Vollstandig.
Also, Uryuu has so far never used Blut, and has never shown any ability of the Sternritter. Rather, his abilities appear more formal, closer to kidou and kyudo rather than powers derived from the king. Also, their crosses are much closer to asauchi than those of the Sternritter.

Certainly Ryuuken loved his wife. And I believe his choice of denial of YHWH was to abandon all links with the Quincys. I am also reminded of his words to Uryuu telling him he has no talent. Which may fit the theme of Uryuu being taught a different way altogether.
>>
>>118263356
Uryuu being told that he has no talent probably refers to the fact that he wasn't born with Blut already active. Mixed bloods are generally weaker, Ichigo and Uryuu are the exceptions to that rule. Perhaps it is true that Uryuu has no talent as a Quincy, but whatever ability he has surpasses Yhwach. We'll have to wait and see.

Unrelated, but the mangapanda translation for a few chapters were updated. It appears that the soul king is indeed the bearer of the world, the literal lynchpin as Urahara put it. Why would Yhwach, or Aizen possibly want to become this lynchpin when there are only obligations involved?
>>
>>118263356
I was always suspicious of Ryuuken's claim that Uryuu had no talent because I suspected it might've been a way he tried to dissuade Uryuu from pursuing a life as a Quincy.
>>
Soul King is the Over-God
Yhwach is literally the Jew God
>>
>>118263792
It's pretty obvious since he didn't want Ishida to become a quincy.
>>
>>118263898
Well yeah, some of us have been saying it for a few years.
>>
>>118263690
>>118263792

Uryuu has indeed something if one considers he does not use Blut or related powers.

He uses a different set of powers. A new way of doing things beyond even YHWH. In effect, the first existence since YHWH himself to have power for himself. Speculatively, of course.

As for why one may wish to topple the Soul King: he is the reason for the current system. Upsetting the order requires toppling him, no matter what.

Aizen wished for change. YHWH wishes for a new order with himself at the top, truly immortal as the cycle of life and death feeds him continuously, with no risk that he could ever be toppled himself, since all powers would be his.

Destroying Hollows and Shinigamis, two sides of the same coin, eliminates his natural enemy, thereby insuring his continuous domination.

Really, it makes sense.
>>
>>118263690
>Perhaps it is true that Uryuu has no talent as a Quincy, but whatever ability he has surpasses Yhwach.
The only reason he's part of the Sternritters is because has shown potential to become stronger than Yhwach and this is something that Yhwach says himself.
When Kirge and Ichigo are fighting, there's a moment where Ichigo states that Kirge's ranged attacks are like Ishida's but way stronger. Kirge then laughs and states that's impossible Ishida is weaker than himself.

We can assume Ishida is indeed a naturally talented quincy.
>>
>>118264054
The current order is not so bad. You set three realms on a scale and if there are too many souls on one side the balance breaks and everyone dies. There is little indication of the SK doing more than just protecting the universe, maybe he does something to souls in the after-death, but that was just barely hinted at when Aizen was sealed.

I really liked that scene. Orihime and Chad are mostly irrelevant at this point but hopefully Ishida can have a great moment before the series wraps up. Wouldn't it be great if he shared the spotlight with Ichigo and it was the two of them who took down Yhwach?
>>
>>118264221
I'm not trying to say it's bad, just that those who wish to change it have to go through the same steps in order to do so.

There are huge techical problems since either there is more than one Soul King or only Japan is inhabited in Bleach world, but that's world building. Realisticallly, its not so great still since Rukongai, overflowing as it is, is necessary to keep the balance.

Of course, when one considers the weight of the Hollows, you gotta have a counterweight, not to mention the weight of the human world.

The buffer is just bizarre, Hueco Mundo and Hell are strangely located, we know nothing of the actual reincarnation process, and the Four Noble Houses make little sense. But that is again worldbuilding.

Rukia.

>>118262431
I imagine one of the remaining mysterious Shinigami will step up to the plate against him. Ukitake/Shunsui/Urahara are probably the main contenders. Shunsui I think is the one who might do it considering that's what was hinted at Bedford when Toofsy went to fight Shunsui at the start of the invasion.

Besides a reality warping Zanpaktou with game based rules vs a reality warping Quincy that acts on the principle of balance seems like it would a very Kubo fight.

>>118264428
The Five Houses are royals, aside from Japan you do have other countries, but they do not appear in the story. Yhwach conquered the world at one point and has the entire Christian religion worshiping him.
It would appear that the prevailing religion depends on who is currently sitting on the throne of the SK as king of the universe.
Komamura's great grandfather said that it doesn't matter who the bearer is, the world won't end because of a change, this in turn hints at a change having occured in the past.
I am convinced that this happened 2000 years ago at the earliest, when Yamamoto ruined SS.

Going on a tangent here, but the SK is the universal protector, this is why it makes sense for Ichigo to eventually become its replacement.

I would be more than happy if we get to see Ishida going Vollstandig.

What? No he doesn't.
Juha isn't the God of Christianity, in bleach. People CALLED him God. There's an important distinction.
Also, Christians don't use that name for God, you're thinking the jews.

WHY KUBO. How could you do this to Rukia? KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBO
>>
>>118264953
Christians, Jews, Jehova's witnesses, they all use that name.
The problem is that the name itself is taboo, you are not allowed to use the true name of god AT ALL for any reason. Even his other names, like God, El Elyion, El Shaddai, even those are heavily restricted in their usage and often use other names to allude to those in turn.

In the ancient proto-semitic/canaanite patheon speaking the name of something gave you power over it. God expressly forbade Moses in speaking his name, he condescendingly just said "I am" (yahweh) when asked for it, so even that name is false.
The truth is far more complex. I have video on the origins of Judaism laying around in my history somewhere if you want to learn more.

The name of God is YHWH, or Yahweh.

Yuhabaha (yhwach) is the Japanese romanization of that.
