Did this piss off anyone else? I have been defending Bleach for the longest but this was the last straw.

I expected exactly the "Almighty" or "All Power", so not so much.

I'm still eager for Bleach chapter, much more than for any other release.

Have you ever read a book? Watched a movie? An anime? Read a manga? Read a comic book? Write an essay?

I'm so sick of the constant shit fights. They all follow the formula;
>Attack
>Explain attack
>Cliffhanger ending of it looking like the other character is defeated
>Next chapter other character survives
>Other character attacks
>Explains attack
>Cliffhanger ending of it looking like the first character is defeated
And rinse and repeat for 10 chapters. I'm all for cool abilities and shit but this needs to stop, there is absolutely no sense of danger anymore.

I tried to deny it but Bleach has really gone downhill.

I don't know why you think Bleach has gone "downhill."

This has legit been the series since the start of the series.

>He's fought hollows who explain their tricks (Grand Fisher)
>The one time he almost fought Ishida, Ishida explained their tricks.
>He's fought Shinigami who explain their tricks (Renji, Byakuya, et all.)

To be mad at the series now for going "downhill" is to admit you have 0 reading comprehension or you're a 14 year old edgelord with no understanding of shounen.

It would be nice to see the main villain struggle a little. It's just boring when he's invincible and doesn't even need to try until the protagonist appears.

I think you're giving shonen too much credit.

The problem is that I started reading Bleach around the time they went into HM, so the things you mentioned didn't bother me since I could read them in bulk.

But reading this weekly is terrible. Like has been mentioned multiple times, it would be much better as a monthly publication, or if one waited for volume releases. But as a weekly publication, it has been terrible lately. Obviously, we all know Yhwach is going to beat the royal guard because Ichigo needs to be the one to save the day. Before that, we obviously knew that the shinigami were going to be able to beat the fodder quincies. Yet instead we have to wait months for something even minimally surprising to happen. I don't give a shit about Ichibel because he's going to become irrelevant as soon as he is defeated.

>>118349954

Technically speaking, it was established in the very beginning of the Quincy arc, that Yuha Bach had bestowed very specific LETTERS for each of the quincy, each signifying their power and thereby introducing them their names.

Kirge was given a J, for being THE JAIL. Bazz-B was given a H, for being THE HEAT.

And this pattern continues for every sternritter. So, in light of this, while Ichibee's power is broken as fuck--he FUCKED UP.

He changed ONLY the name of Yuha Bach, he did NOT change the name of his power. If Ichibee had changed the name of say Bazz-B from THE HEAT to THE WARM, his burner fingers would have been worthless, as anyone with a decent amount of reiatsu would have been able to shrug off the "fire".

Same with Juha Bach, had Ichibee had known that Juha is an A, "THE ALMIGHTY", and had he changed the power's name from that to "THE ANT", then his attacks would have been effective and Bach would be dead.

Names are important in Bleach, Kubo stresses this constantly. So even if Yuha Bach became The Ant, his power is still "THE ALMIGHTY", therefore, he is "THE ALMIGHTY" Ant, and this almighty ant just fucked smashed a sword through Ichibee's chest.

The name fading away from Yuha Bach, I found, as being symbolism for "you renamed me to something with an ASSUMPTION that you changed my power, but the reality is that you only changed what I am called as and failed to change what I am capable off. For that reason, for your ignorance, you will die."

I thought it was pretty simple and straight forward, not really an asspull.

I'm honestly looking forward to some explanation on his eyes. Aizen did the same thing when he "ascended" and Soul King has fucked up eyes himself.

>>
>>118350925
No, Bleach has gone downhill because the formula has become very stale. It was okay in the beginning where all these spirit powers thing where new, and still fresh enough with the introduction of the SS. But by now there's an assload of characters, it's getting harder for new characters to be interesting, old ones are competing for screen time and the pacing is so goddamn slow. Defeating Aizen took 400 chapters and he's still got secrets. We still don't know the deal with characters like Urahara, Kyouraku and Ukitake, all of whom were introduced over 500 chapters ago. And so on. It just kinda feels like it doesn't have a main plot but loosely connected arcs that doesn't fully resolve it's plot and carries it over to the next arc.
>>
>>118354887
Well, both Aizen and Gin made it a point to obscure their true abilities as much as possible. That's actually the strategy you need against this guy.
>>
>>118355625
Didn't he steal them to rez his homies? Doesn't seem like he had any intention of using them.
>>
>getting angry at something everyone saw coming
>getting angry at something so typical in Bleach

Think of it this way. His underlings' powers included:

>Fire strong enough to fight off Yama' s Zanpaktou
>the ability to make your imaginations a reality
>the ability to shoot an incredibly fast and unstoppable bullet of reishi
>the ability to revive/control anybody
>the ability to perfectly mimic someone and their powers
>the ability to warp all physical objects in a given field
>becoming nigh invincible and insanely powerful as long as you have someone cheering for you
>having total control over the lethal dosage of anything in your and your opponent's bodies


And you think that Yhwach' s power wouldn't be some absurd bullshit? A guy who is multiple times stronger than all his minions? Never mind we haven't seen Toofsy' s full power even though it's already some reality warping bullshit or the Miracle' s or Compulsory' s who were also part of the Elite Guard for Yhwach.

The Quincy' s powers are, for the most part, these abstract piles of bullshit that puts to shame pretty everything but a handful of people because of the ramping up of power levels that happens in every shonen.

Ichiruki or both die end. My guess is Rukia will die in his arms, give her heart to him. Which will give Ichigo the resolve to finish everything.

All confirmed Kubo ships end with at least one of them dead, so yeah. If IchiRuki happens they might both die.

You apparently haven't read Bleach lately. Kubo completely backtracked on Orihime's characterization and reverted her to pre-ss arc Orihime.

Aizen is both a terrible and good villain. He can pull whatever he wants out of his ass thanks to illusions and the plot ball and his keikaku's are out of this world, but damn is he entertaining. Yhwach is almighty but not nearly as hilarious.
>>
>>118358351
It was because of his powers being stolen from him again, that's pretty fucking obvious. I mean fuck, anybody could have delivered him his powers and he'd have been happy.

I didn't see Ichigo going full motherfucking hollow mode to save Rukia.

Origihime is the clear love interest. I don't even like her, it's just clear. Rukia and Ichigo have never had any sort of romantic moments, hell he's had more romance with fucking Yoruichi than her.

She is his bro-tier friend for life, she's more likely to fuck Byakuya or Renji than Ichigo.

Exactly. Bleach is not a story anymore. It's a magical abilities idea book.

Just because you're expecting it doesn't make it not stupid. It's the execution, not the result.
>>
>>118363868
Aren't most people generally complaning about the result?
You cannot execute Yq\watch's power well without it coming off as an asspull result.
It's literally 'the almighty" which gives him immunity to everything he understands
>>
>>118364065
The way I see it is that most people are complaining about the execution, namely how the power was revealed, what the power was, and how Bach used it, instead of the actual result, him winning the fight.
>>
>>118361713
The similar thing happened just before when he tried to take Monkman's power. He took the aggregation of power when really the monk's ability was gathering the darkness. They both made false assumptions about each other.
>>
>>118363838
After Aizen died, that is what it devolved into. But, it is the best magical abilities book out there, so that is a plus.

Can you even read? The point is there's nothing deep about it, it was very clearly thematically presented that Yhwach whose name is clearly directly based on a diety, is revered as a god and has god-like powers. The way he beat batshit monk didn't reveal his godliness particularly well but it shouldn't have been anything near a surprise to even a so-called "level 1 reader"

>>
>>118357059
This. Also I would say that while Kubo's choreography was probably never great at least in the beginning there was some fighting like when Ichigo fought Renji those two times or with the fight with Ikkaku.

Now its just two people just exchanging powers with the one with superior stats winning like its a turn based RPG.

Really? Maybe I misread it but the beginning of that arc seemed to set her up as anything but. She was conscious of the fact that Rukia and Ichigo have a very special bond that is unlike anything she has with him and she seemed to think it was romantic. There's the bit where she admits she's guilty of feeling jealous of Rukia to Rangiku and then later after Grimmjow nearly kills Rukia and Orihime is healing her you can see that she's yet again jealous of the attention Rukia gets from Ichigo.

It didn't seem like it lead anywhere but it looked to me like it was going to lead up to some sort of resolution for Orihime and her unrequited feelings for Ichigo.

I think you are misunderstanding the situation
that wasn't about Orihime's jealousy, it was about her feelings of inadequecy compared to Rukia.
Rukia was a fighter, and Ichigo's confidant, and she saw how much of an impact her getting hurt had on Ichigo.
Orihime was being rather oblivious to the fact that Orihime getting beaten up by the arrancars had a similar impact on Ichigo.
THat's the entire set up for her agreeing to go to hueco mundo.
She thinks "It's okay, I can do this to protect everyone, they don't really need me anyways, now that Kuchiki's here."
And then everyone coming to rescue her and Ichigo snapping about not allowing Grimmjow to hurt him anymore because it made Orihime cry, those events solidified in Orihime's mind that yes, everyone DOES care for her, just like they care for Rukia.

There was definitely some jealousy there, but it was far more envy than jealousy. No resentment was ever made towards Rukia, all of the negative feelings Orihime had was that she wasn't *enough* like Rukia.

I'm kind of surprised so many people miss it, but when you have to take 4 years to read the arc... I guess I can see why.

Envy is jealously, and yeah I got the same thing as well but I think ti was implied that Orihime figured Ichigo had romantic feelings for Rukia.At the very least she felt Rukia was closer to Ichigo and I do't think she's wrong. However, she came to learn that despite that Ichigo would still go into HM and against the odds risk his life to try and save her and so would Rukia, Chad, and Ishida. And I guess Renji too.

And of course she didn't resent Rukia, the first we hear of it she expresses guilt over even feeling envious of Rukia and the two become closer throughout the arc.

>Envy is jealously
Not quite
envy is "I wish I had that" while jealousy is "they're preventing me from having that!" or "they're taking that away from me"

Jealousy involves a negative emotion directed at either the concept of losing something, or the person that is getting what you want.


The grass is always greener on the other side is about envy, because it's "I wish I had better grass than I do, like my neighbor does"

They're related of course, but they are distinct and different.

That's the point I was trying to make. Orihime didn't really fear losing Ichigo. She didn't consider Ichigo hers to begin with. Rather, she was envious of Rukia, because she felt if she could be like Rukia, she could easily win the IchiBowl

I guess I wasn't clear because that was exactly what I got from it as well so that's why I didn't think that arc was setting up Orihime as the eventual winner of the IchiBowl but rather leading up to some sort of resolution to her unrequited feelings. I thought by the end of the arc she was going to move on but it didn't quite work out that way.

Honestly I felt like her development was unfinished as it seemed to have taken a back seat to the fights towards the end with the FKT battles and the Aizen ordeal. Never felt like Kubo accomplished what he wanted to with Orihime in that arc and I think he wanted to do more with her in the Fullbringer arc but that one was rushed towards the end and once again the Shinigami stole the spotlight.
>>
>>118369418
I dunno, I think Kubo wanted to establish Orihime as an important part of the group in the hueco mundo arc, and used her feelings for Ichigo as a catalyst for it.
I don't think he ever intended on resolving it until the end.
Pretty much every time that you see Orihime now, it's fawning over Ichigo. She's far more open about it than she was before the time skip.
And it's not like Ichigo doesn't have any idea how important he is to her either, afterall, she broke down crying during his fight with Grimmjow, and gave that big speech about him not getting hurt.

I think Kubo just likes to let romance simmer just a bit too low, so he can take or leave it in the end.

I highly suspect though, that we'll get a naruto-esque end of "and these two are together, these two are together, these two are together..."

Which will annoy me to no end, but it seems the shonen way

Also, he didn't paint Yuha's eyes, Yuha kept his eyes closed.

There's enough power in Yuha or Aizen's eye alone to manifest their powers.

Something else to point out that makes this less bullshit is that Bach may be able to nullify effects and not the damage done by/during the effects. Which is why Ichibe's melee has done the most damage to Yuha and which is why Yama was a greater threat to Bach than Ichibe, he was a pure damage dealer, there were no powers or effects to nullify.

I could see that and it seems to be true

You're probably right but I still think there was some unfinished business with her. Maybe not a full resolution but more direction with her.

>Pretty much every time that you see Orihime now, it's fawning over Ichigo. She's far more open about it than she was before the time skip.
True but even now she's not that open about it and to be honest I think it makes her a much more simple character than she needs to be. I wish she was more than just that chick who fawns over Ichigo and occasionally puts up a shield or heals someone ehre and there and I think she could've been.

>And it's not like Ichigo doesn't have any idea how important he is to her either, afterall, she broke down crying during his fight with Grimmjow, and gave that big speech about him not getting hurt.
True but its still not explicitly romantic

I think its pretty clear that's what he's doing.

If that happens I hope at least he makes it worth it and throws us some less expected pairings like Orihime with Ishida and Ichigo with Tatsuki or something like that. The shipper tears would be lovely.

Ulquiorra does explain the Cero Oscuras remarking upon how similar it is to the Bankai Getsuga. He also preaches about despair or something then explains to Hollow Ichigo that his specialty is regeneration.

So yeah a lot less than normal Bleach fights.

Ichigo vs Grimmjow was a fucking slugfest. And it was awesome.

That could be executed horribly but maybe not. I know this sounds cheesy but I think it would be neat Ywach was defeated by the four Karakura humans(Ichigo, Ishida, Orihime, and Chad).

Ichigo is Ichigo so of course he's going to be a part of it. Ishida is of course a very powerful Quincy and the successor to Ywach so its not hard to imagine him being pivotal. Chad has Hollow powers which are poison to Quincy and of course Orihime has her rejection powers which we've been told are so powerful but she's never really had a great moment with them.

The four of them in some simultaneous maneuver defeating Ywach would be awesome.

This whole silly line of questioning always ignores the obvious
evil is there for us to overcome.

In many ways, Aizen represents that quote, and Ichigo represents the truth, because he doesn't let the philosophical approach blind him to the plight of those in need.

Though not sure how the others are gonna live.

I'm wondering if when Ichigo arrives, the whole thing's gonna be over. Soul King will be dead, Juha reigns, and the royal guard wiped out.

Ichigo then has to fight Ishida and try to convince him to switch sides.
But turns out, Ishida's been playing Juha all along. He uses his new power to boost Ichigo's like when they fought the menos

Might just be his whole motivation really.

Think about it. He hates Urahara for being able but unwilling, claims nobody has sat in the seat of heaven and Ichigo sensed that he felt alone because he felt no one around him to be equal. The Spirit King does nothing himself with all his power and it disgusts him and he feels obligated to take over that role's duties because he figured nobody else could.

“My hand is at your heart.”

The fingers resting so casually on his chest froze him for half a breath, and maybe that was what made the difference. When his muscles unlocked and he slashed at Aizen, sure and fast as he was Aizen didn’t even dodge this time. His hand caught Ichigo’s wrist and held it easily over his head. The world blurred and Ichigo’s back slammed into a wall, and those fingers on his breastbone held him there. The world sharpened around him as he struggled against them, breath coming faster.

“Don’t be foolish,” Aizen murmured, and Ichigo stiffened as Aizen’s leg slid between his thighs and pressed up.

Ichigo choked on a curse, eyes wide at the twist of heat low in his stomach.

Aizen smiled faintly. “Don’t worry; the others don’t see us. Not for the moment.” His hand lifted from Ichigo’s chest to catch his jaw instead and he completed Ichigo’s shock by kissing him, deep and intent.

Confusion spun through his mind, but when Aizen’s hand slid slowly, firmly, down his throat, only one response sang through Ichigo’s body; his hips jerked helplessly against Aizen’s thigh.
>>
>>118377865
“You see,” Aizen murmured against his mouth, “you need this.” He took Ichigo’s other wrist and pulled it up to join his sword hand, pinning them both against the wall over his head. “You fear your own power.” Long fingers tugged loose Ichigo’s hakama and slid under to wrap around his cock. Aizen’s eyes held his like chain wrapped around his will.

“You need to feel a greater power control yours.”

The weight of that power was locked around him, hard and hot as Aizen’s fist around his cock, and Ichigo bucked into them both and moaned with dark, tempting pleasure when he couldn’t break either grip.

“I’ll let you feel it,” Aizen told him, cool and even as he held Ichigo easily against the wall and jerked him off hard and slow. “And then we will fight. Feel free to use every iota of your power. I will subdue it.” Pleasure pulled at Ichigo’s nerves, answering Aizen’s perfect assurance, his promise. Aizen leaned in closer and finished, softly, “And then, only then, I will bring you back to this wall and turn you around and let you feel the rest. Look forward to it.”

He caught the low, harsh sound Ichigo made under his mouth, pinning Ichigo firmly in place as he shuddered with orgasm. When Ichigo hung limp in his grasp he drew back a bit and smiled. “Tie your hakama again before I break the illusion.” And he was standing back where they’d started.

Ichigo pressed back against the roughness of the wall and stared at the sky and tried not to think about what had just happened.

Or why he had let it.

Kyoraku will convince Aizen to get reinforcements to the Royal Realm, with the power of the Hougyoku if need be. Aizen certainly had plans and backup plans for getting into the Royal Realm.

They will use Orihime as leverage to keep Aizen in a short leash, but as Aizen goes rogue, Orihime refuses to reject the Hougyoku, because the implant in her finally started kicking. This resolves both unused plot threads that were left dangling around Orihime since Mexico.

Aizen will then fight Yhwach, and Ichigo will fight the victor, who was weakened in the previous fight. However, this time Ichigo won't react like a fag like he did after defeating Ulquiorra.

To be serious for a while, there's no story on bleach. It's all about flashy battles. Try to imagine bleach without them and you will see that there isn't even a shitty one behind it, it complete it just plot holes all over a story that is obviously being written without any second thought at all.

There are some inconsistencies between those two images, and I don't just mean the wrap. Doesn't matter.

>>118382480
Who the hell even knows anymore, probably. I can promise you it's not his bankai, Kubo's saving that to reveal later. They might be unreleased because they're essentially brand new Zanpakuto and he hasn't been shown releasing them yet. But my bet's on shikai.

>>118382599
I don't think he's ever "released" it conventionally (by issuing a command like the other shinigami do), but this form is unreleased.

>I'm a literal retard who didn't read the manga
It's been foreshadowed or outright explained like a half-dozen times now. Let me guess, you completely skipped all the Yhwach backstory chapters. And you probably don't even know what YHWH means.
>>
>>118382757
Not really, naruto had a shitty story but at least it made some sense. Bleach is just a train-wreck.
>>
>>118382765
That's Sode no Shirayuki, before Rukia's powers were taken away from him. Only a crumbling shell was left, which was replaced with NOT-Zangetsu.

We have never seen Ichigo's unreleased form, unless his two swords is it.
>>
>>118382765
why the fuck didn't rukia use any fucking dance on that fucking shitty hollow?

it would have been more epic to see it break the ice then damage rukia and then the rest happens all the same with the power transfer and shit.
>>
>>118382823
it really isnt that much of a train-wreck

Im not saying its that good either because the pacing of this story is literally a snail but if you read it all at once things start making way more sense and fights that seem like they are being dragged out and are boring become more enjoyable
>>
>>118382823
While I agree Naruto's plot is more coherent it's still really bad.
>>
Can we all at least agree that Aizen is out of prison or was never in it to begin with?

Either he got released when the Quincy started replacing Soul Society's buildings with their own or when Beast Monk released his Shikai causing all the black to move around.

I still suspect Ganjyu of being Aizen.
>>
>>118382875
Only kubo can rush things and still have a fucking slow pace.
>>
>>118382873
A combination of Ichigo being a retard and dashing forward, Rukia wanting to lose her powers and being bewildered by Ichigo being a retard/badass, Hougyoku a shit, and plot.

You could say that Rukia couldn't have saved Ichigo at that point even if she had used her zanpakuto/kido/whateverthefuck.
>>
>>118382913
We're all sure he comes back, for all we know he might still be there but there's gonna be an explanation for him strolling out anyway.
>>
>>118382913
Plot twist: the Yhwach that just killed Ichibei is actually Aizen.
>>
>>118350256
The Heart
>>
>>118382873
No guarantee she had them back then, she only used them at the start of the arrancar arc, so she may have unlocked her shikai while in soul society.
>>
>>118383000
>No guarantee she had them back then
How about you re-read Rukia & Kaien flashback.
>>
>>118382873
Because Kubo hadn't thought that far ahead yet, and even if he had, that wasn't important to setting up the plot yet.
>>
>>118383025
Sorry, my mistake. It was probably either inexperience or plot fuckery then.
>>
>>118382873
>more epic
It was already plenty "epic" enough for what it was at the time. Complaining that the first chapter of the manga didn't use an idea that was introduced many chapters later strikes me as a foolish waste of breathe.
>>
>>118383071
It happens.

Re-read it anyway, it's good.
>>
>>118383133
Honestly, Kaien didn't really any impact on the plot. Just back-story and that one espada fight
>>
>>118383186
He was more relevant in peoples' minds back when everyone suspected Ichigo was his reincarnation, and not just his cousin.
>>
>>118383047
to emphatise even further how fucking stronk ichigo is
>>
>>118383186
Oh, but he did. You just think that way because Rukia's backstory was revealed that much later.

Besides, we still don't know everything about him. Byakuya referred to him many times, but we know nothing of their interactions. Who knows how much Kaien influenced Byakuya?
>>
>>118365011
>Stormlight Archive

You mean the Lightbringer
>>
>>118383254
I doubt we'll find out anymore about him. He was a minor character, who affected Rukia and maybe Ukitake, but that's it. I can't see him having much influence over Byakuya either since he would have been a captain at the time.
>>
>>118383312
And Kaien was Acting Captain as a Lieutenant, since Ukitake was too sick for his duties.

Also, both were from Noble Houses, and Rukia was Kaien's underling. Since Byakuya made sure that Rukia wouldn't be promoted etc, he must've talked with Kaien about it.
>>
>>118383365
Byakuya was also in his Frigid Bitch phase back then, when he would've killed his own sister to uphold the law. The Kuchiki are the biggest noble family if i remember correctly, while the Shiba were outcasts. I doubt Ukitake was completely unable to perform his duties, they would've replaced Kaien after he died if that was the case.
>>
>>118383481
Byakyua wasn't that bad; he did look out for Rukia. Besides, Shiba got the boot sometime between Isshin going to the human world and Ichigo turning 15. I'm pretty sure that Rukia's flashback is older than that.
>>
>>118382979
since when were you under the impression i'm a quinc?

That's like asking "Hey why didn't Shanks just do basically anything and defeat the Seaking without losing an arm?"

It's because what happens in chapter should not be taken as indicative of everything else.

In a way, back then she didn't seem to care if she got killed by that hollow.

Then suddenly Ichigo who was displaying stuff she hadn't seen before and being reckless complicating things leading to Rukia acting on an impulse without fully thinking.

did anyone else notice kubo slipping in the fact that yhwach has a zanpakutou?

>>118385900
His sword having a name doesn't necessarily mean its a zanpakuto. He might be able to give powers to inanimate objects too.
>>
>>118385900
Can't be sure it is one but there's definitely something to it since he was about to show it off during the fight. All we know about it so far is that it's a sword that cuts the sky to make the bow that shoots down a sword of pure reiatsu.

I think Kubo wanted to tell a story but by now he's juggling all these characters and fights and he ends up dropping the story. It happened with the FKT arc.

>>118382913
>I still suspect Ganjyu of being Aizen.
That would actually be pretty awesome.
>>
>>118387835
It's foreshadowing.

Yhwach was basically a hogyouku that slowly became human, Aizen still has a trick up Orihime's sleeves that never got used during HM and it seems that you can't just kill him off if you don't want a repeat of the raping of SS down the line. I mean why else would Urahara send up her and Chad?
>>
I don't care that he won, but I did care that Kubo spent like five chapters on this shit just to have this faggot go '#GOML' anyway
>>
>>118390100
I hope that turns out to be true because that would be awesome. Orihime being more than than a damsel and a love interest for Ichigo would redeem her a bit.

If she ends up with Ishida then I will forgive Kubo for most of his transgressions

That's gr8 op but you gotta Check 'em

Reishi. It's a sword made out of reishi. Reiatsu is spiritual pressure. Reishi is actual spirit particles.

>people still can't come to an agreement about what his power actually does, some people say he's omniscient and other say that he can become immune to powers by understanding them

Almighty as in God doesn't make sense because he's neither a God nor has Godly powers.
Almighty as in omnipotent doesn't make sense because an omnipotent being wouldn't need a fucking explanation of a power to beat said power.
Not only that but his physical change doesn't have a direct relation to any of the possible name explanations.

Kubo really goofed this one big time. He could have used something else but he wanted to make a reference to God and the name he used feels forced.

The Almighty is fine. The definition of a god varies greatly so I don't know how you can say he is or isn't a god. The basic idea is that they are strong in some sense and have power over nature or humans.

If you're honestly expecting an answer to all your questions at the end of the reveal chapter then that's pretty silly.

>>118354834
>this post
I can't stress how important is to not understand things too literally.
Changing Yhwach into "Black Ant" didn't mean making him an ant. Think about it as a metaphor where Ichibei turned him into a weak, frail creature.
And even when weak and frail it still was powerful enough to survive Ichibei's attacks and counter Ichibei's powers. Yhwach never lost his powers.

There's no reason to think that the Sternritters and their powers are separate much less Yhwach who is the one who actually spreads his powers around. They are not carrying a vessel of their powers unlike Shinigamis.
