So basically his power is maximum?
I think I know how kubo works. He first thinks of the most bullshit ability, then he spends the rest of the time thinking of how to defeat it. Because this feels like its going that way, he's gonna have a bullshit power defeated by some even more bullshit asspull.
And I'm gonna like every second of it
I see him biting the dust soon.
If he can see the future then surely he sees his death, and he put Ishida next in line for a reason.
Ichigo will probably kill him, then Ishida will be in charge and Ichigo will have to kill his friend to save the world or some shit
at least with this we can actually expect something different next week. whether that's someone else fighting yhwach, switching to another fight, switching back to seireitei, or ichigo & co in transit. Anything's fine with me if it means we can change things up a bit
>You're now realizing that all War Potentials are all extremely powerful people, but not even they know what the limits of their powers are thus making them wildcards.
>You're also realizing that Yamamoto wasn't considered a War Potential in Bach's eyes because he ditched the ruthless mentality of a true warrior and was nothing to be afraid of as he is now, meaning that he became predictable and easy to read.
It was always related to Bach since the beginning.
So basically if you don't tell him your power, you can kill him. Well too fucking bad this is Bleach and to explain to the readers what the fuck is going on both good and bad guys tell each other their skills
I wish the death of scary fat guy was a bit more thought out. At least a couple pages of fighting where bach is saying shit like I can predict your every move or I know the outcome of every possible move and this is the one where I kill you.
Then he does some slash shit and kill him.
Not just fucking sharingan, monologue, opponent dead.
There's no rhyme or reason to the progression or sequence of fights anymore. Aizen at least had a Macguffin like the Hougyoku which caused him to "evolve", but Ywach's literally omnipotent is what we're being told.
Hurr how dare you! Kubo can do NO wrong. All the plot developments and character's abilities are well-thought out and well-written. Kubo is master of foreshadowing plot twist and subtlety. You shud pay moar attention you level 0 reader!
Posted this in the last thread as well
So is it safe to conclude that as grows more powerful he grows older
and the younger he is the weaker he is?
Ichigos tensa zangetsu was young as fuck
what does that imply?
we've been over the beard theory before
Kubo's probably going to pull some bullshit that involves some inescapable death despite the fact that he can see into the future.
That or some other bullshit concept. I don't know anymore.
Thats my point, they merged, so the result (TZ), broke the 'rule' of the older, the more powerfull. Perhaps he was made really young on purpose for this reason, a new entity that was not Yhwach nor HI
he's really not, the wrinkles on his cheeks got a little more well defined just once, and that was in the same jump where his beard first changed, since then the only change has been the mustache. If anything a few of his features have softened, but those haven't been consistent changes.
Shit that last picture was pretty brutal. Was that his cranial spine sticking out of him?
How the fuck can anyone going to beat Ywach if he can just mindcrush people. I swear to god if its the heart, I'm gonna
First time I saw the panel thought it was a mistake. Took me a while to realize what the fuck was going on. Yea he has 3 irises in each eye but that panel still looks potato as fuck.
So anyway, so far, we can conclude that each iris does something different right?
Normal pair: Power boost of the Quincy king
2nd pair: Sees the future
3rd pair: Makes you powerless
He really is A: The Asspull.
What a load of fucking garbage.
The plot really needs to fucking advance this is way to slow.
>My power is to see into the future and understand all things etc etc
We already figured that out last time, but fine we didn't know he 'had his eyes closed' the whole time.
>You think I'll lose?!
>Way to many pages of darkness, darnkess muh black dark darkness.
Would you hurry the fuck up? Your time ran out last chapter.
>Gets 1 shot because muh almighty, chapter ends.
Fantastic, I hope he's fucking dead for good now. This chapter was way to similar to last weeks.
Didn't we already have several characters with bodies covered in eyes. I feel like a third eye would have been slightly less dumb and got the point across of clairvoyance.
can we talk about how hilarious this was?
did I miss the chapter where they explained what the fuck this nigga is supposed to be doing during all of this?
So everytime Yhwach's spirit weapon's been shown it ends up being useless even though it's been hyped up for something impressive.
So far all he's done with it is put dents into Ichigo's last bankai.
The "good" guys rarely do, granted who knows who the good guys in Bleach are any more. Literally everyone but Ichigo and his friends are asshats and even then you have Ishida who's a rival of sorts. And Bromamura.
Bleach is just making me angrier and angrier each week with its shitty shitty writing. Where is your self-respect Kubo Tite, you good for nothing shit?! Is that why you wear those damned sunglasses - to avoid catching a glimpse at yourself in the mirror?
You know, I don't think I've said this before, but I really like Yhwach's moustache.
I haven't read Bleach since Ichigo got his twin zanpakutos, what am I in for?
But can he see why kids love the taste of cinnamon toast crunch?
Not much really. I think Kubo burned out of craziness early on in this arc cause it's been rather stale since Ichigo descended from super heaven or whatever. There's be a few high points I guess. Rukia Bankai comes to mind. Also some Mayuri shenanigans.
For a moment I had hope reading this panel
>after 2 pages he is kill
Fuck you kubo.
were you paying no attention during the entire hueco mundo arc? she doesn't heal shit, she rejects the event of them being injured. That includes rejecting the event of people being killed. She's done it multiple times already.
Also, it's that time of the year again.
Mainly it's just been anticlimax after anticlimax. And characters being disappointing. Rukia and Mayuri being exceptions.
Like even Kenpachi getting his Zanpakuto's name is ultimately underwhelming because he doesn't seem any stronger than before. Sure he beats this massive overhyped quincy, but then immediately jobs to a bunch of mid tier characters.
That page alone signified his end, because this nigger was too cocky for his own good
How come he never thought it was fishy that Yhwach didn't show fear at all or panic at least considering the situation ? That's like Aizen fooling Gotei 13 while they thought they got him
Yeah but she has problems rejecting injuries done by powerful attacks.
It took her a shitload of time to heal Ulquiorra's hand stab and she couldn't even do anything about the Oscuras hole.
You know, I honestly thought it would be clear enough that I was just joking with the Orihime shit, as there are several dead characters she didn't bring back.
I really underestimated there would be a huge fucking autist like you here.
Go ahead and call me "j-just pretending" now, to defend your inability to understand jokes and to fog your paranoia that everybody everywhere is out to get you.
He drugged zombie shota into an infinite time loop and stood around with a shit eating grin as he brought back some old Arrancars. It was a nice diversion from the mediocre fights.
Yeah but everybody with a brain knew he was gonna job. Half the people in these threads were calling it the minute he started acting cool.
He was pretty cool, but it's stupid he went out like a bitch.
With Mayuri at least you don't end up disappointed.
what's been your favorite thing about this whole arc so far?
Honestly I think bleach would have been a lot better if it wasnt in wsj.
Maybe in a less "Kiddy" magazine he could do a little bit more mature story since thats what it really looks like hes going for.
Aizen's going to defeat him because Jewha can't see a power that fucks with your senses.
Of course he was gonna job. None but the MC can take the big bad down in a commercial shonen manga.
What we didn't expect was him dying out of nowhere after Ywach shrugged the most broken spell in the entire fucking manga being cast straight at him.
Yama had a better death, being cut in half after his Bankai was sealed away. Ichibei just... exploded.
Souls. Perhaps millions condensed into a single orb.
He's going to consume them just to win against Yhwach/Aizen/Ishida/whoever, which will put the witnessing Ichigo in a delicate position
fuck me, they already know that ichigo is their cousin
>Guy know for beating enemies stronger than him using asspulls has to fight a guy known for defeating enemies stronger than him using asspulls
Hard to say. The universe would collapse if they have a real fight.
Bach can understand and overcome everything he sees, but he can't see
>Yhwach can see the future, all fights, all abilities, everything.
>Somehow, while fighting Ichigo Yhwach's foresight isn't working and Ichigo's attacks aren't according to his predictions.
>Then as Yhwach lays dying, defeated, he questions why his foresight didn't match reality, Aizen appears.
>"You couldn't see the truth because you were already immersed within my illusions since the first time we met."
>Flash back to Aizen meeting Yhwach in the Muken.
>Now, I will be the one to sit in the heavens.
>Rest of the RG will probably follow suit if they chose to confront Ywach
>Shunsui, one of the first shinigami to be born after the genocide/pre-gotei era, is now the new captain commander
>Komamura's Grampa talking about a new order or a general change in how SS works
Pretty much confirmed that the story aims at replacing the old SS traditions and members and start a new era. Regardless of it being lead by Quincy or Shinigami.
>We had a character that could cloud all 5 senses with his shikai alone
>Aizen has never used bankai(?)
>The strongest quincy uses all 5 senses to predict the future
>With the SS being converted or destroyed we haven't heard anything about Aizen
I don't know how I feel about this
Ichigo has Getsuga Tensho, which is just your average compressed spiritual power thrown at the opponent. Easy to see and understand.
And even if he somehow becomes able to use Mugetsu again, it's also a technique that can be understood.
His winning card is going to be something different and unusual. Or something happens that nullifies Ywatch's power
The reason Aizen could manipulate his senses was that Bach tried to use his multiple irises to impress upon him the fact that he was Almighty, but accidentally saw a future in which Aizen was releasing his sword, and it retroactively gave Aizen influence over his mind, thus jump-starting and speeding up the re-awakening of his previously dormant powers, thus moving Bach's seeing him release his sword to a nearer point in the future, causing a loop until Aizen's ability to use his sword's power awakened at the moment Bach looked at him.
Then he probably needs to watch out for those with insane physical strength. Like Ichigo. Or Ken-chan. Or Aizen. Basically the War Potentials.
Also gives you insight in who the remaining War Potentials might be.
I want to see Ichigo+Aizen tag team against Bach, then Aizen turning against everyone.
Precognition is an overhyped battle ability. There's plently of drawbacks and blind spots on it. For example, can be limited by his comprehension of what he's seeing. If say someone killed him at the speed of light, he wouldn't understand a thing from what he just saw. He would just see himself die, but not understand why it will happen. Or if Aizen killed him under the effects of an illusion, he would not understand what killed him.
Such things would only make him see the end coming, but not understand why.
If Kubo plays this straight, Ywach will actually surrender in the end because he will see an unavoidable defeat.
>If Kubo plays this straight, Ywach will actually surrender in the end because he will see an unavoidable defeat.
>big bad surrendering
>in a fucking shonen manga
>rest of the RG
The 4 super sternritters are just standing there, watching Ywach fight.
As the Last Quincy all the powers of the Quincy will come to him whether he wills it or not. Great foreshadowing don't you think?
In other words he's OP as shit and must be a war potential.
>people will still defend A - The Asspull
Kubo just spent an entire chapter on the exact same thing that happened last chapter, only with more buildup and a scarier-looking ability just to drive home the point of how fucking retarded invincible Bach's power makes him. What a load of horse shit.
On the way to the Royal Realm
Considering that he hasn't had a real fight since he got shit on by Nnoitra years and years ago, he could've become a real powerhouse.
Full body armor, bet on it.
Just like Orihime will be a powerhouse amirite? Please, he'll get his one minute of fame against Yuhwach's second hand dude while teaming up with hime only to get rekt by Ishida right after who doesn't kill them for muh personal reasons.
I expect him to have full-body armor and for Orihime to pull out two more abilities, but it doesn't make any sense that they could have achieved a relevant power level.
>Rest of the RG will probably have jobbed offscreen to the sternritter
So the question is, what's the next fight? I doubt Toofsy or the ritters will just let whoever shows up next waltz on up to Yhwach.
>Kubo-san-sensei, your chapter deadline is in ten minutes!
>Oh shit I haven't started! What do I do?
>Okay let's just take the last chaper and move the part where B explains Ywach's ability to the front, move the part where Ywach nullifies the ink attack to the middle and redraw it as a big mausoleum, and leave the part where the monk gets splatted at the end
I like the fact that there are currently 4/5 monster level characters.
self proclaimed omniscient, ans still rising. For some reason, note that bach's eyes strongly resembles the soul king's now.
Master mind, probably learned from his past mistakes to become even more powerful, still didnt use bankai, whole manga could be his doing from chapter 1.
hollowshinigamiquincy, chemistry sometimes gives surprising results.
still unknown, but the fact that he's in a dimension of his own might be a hint of his powers ? but then why would he need to be so much protected.
I dont think so, I think Monk has pulled out enough of Bachs power. Hes basically a god like existence like the soul king now. I expect 219230 chapter of almighty bullshit fight between soul king and yhwach.
But first we will be getting another 2 years of side characters fighting.
Remember, the old man in Ichigo's sword is Yhwach. So clearly, Yhwach is Ichigo's great grandfather and Ichigo has inherited his almighty God powers at 1/6th the normal strength. However, when it is combined with Uryu's Quincy powers after they team up to kill Yhwach he is able to manifest it 100% to have a 1V1 God fight with Yhwach.
>but then why would he need to be so much protected.
Who said he needs to be. Some people collect stamps. Some collect renowned historical figures.
He made them all immortal with the king's key, didn't he? Ooetsu looks fucking young despite that he predates the concept of the Zanpakuto.
The Royal Guard isn't guarding the Spirit King. They are guarding the culture of Soul Society. At any time the entire Seireitei would be destroyed, everything can be recreated from their knowledge. Zanpakutoes, robes, magic, all knowledge and history.
Sure they are powerful. But they are not soldiers. They are a living archive.
Not even trolling, you're probably right. Toofsy said that battle itself is what keeps Yhwach strong and that he'll never stop fighting as a result. The only way to defeat him is to not fight.
Can you see what I mean now?
>yfw you realize Yawach's whole ability is based on perceiving the future, and that he visited Aizen in prison, whose entire skill set was manipulating the perceptions of those around him.
>yfw Aizen knew all bout Yawach's "A" ability and altering his perception of the future to his purposes.
>yfw when the final battle is over Ichigo defeats Yawach through some random power up that Yawach "didn't see coming" and Aizen walks onto the battle field as the new soul king
>yfw a golden age for Soul Society begins.
>The only way to defeat him is to not fight.
Is Captain Flower's bankai Tic Tac Toe?
How did Ywach regain his strength after being defeated by old-man genocide?
What's being said here >>118517126, why didn't he turn into his blind, mute baby-form?
Who has the quinchy's been fighting?
>Jew God's power is actually a Deviant Art tier original donut steel Sonic character ability
I don't even care anymore, I'll just sit back and see how things unfold.
To think that I was so into Bleach in the past, and spent hours discussing the Vaizards in some backwards Bleach forum... but now, it's gone, null, void, nada, I feel anything.
I'd marry my cousin in a heartbeat if she was this hot
Yamamoto cannot kill babies. It's his one weakness. He said something like that when fighting Wonderweiss.
So when he defeated Yhwach, Yhwach turned into a baby and Yamamoto just gave up. That's what Mayuri meant when he said you failed to kill him that day and it's all your fault.
>bleach, everything is possible
i got the fucking impression that all can be possible each scan tite make, all can be reversed.
Like introduce ichibee as badass shnigami, and 4 chap later he got wrecked by ywach. srlsy bleach, what the fuck .
>Implying Aizen would help lackies of the Soul King in any way.
Honestly Yhwach is just doing his legwork for him, clearing out these pieces of shit who defend the SK. Now that some of the more troublesome foes like monk are out of the picture, Aizen should be around shortly.
>Monk is Aizen's hard counter
Which is why he was more than happy to sit back and let Yhwach take care of that little problem for him.
I'm still calling it that illusions can troll the Almighty. Just because you can see everything doesn't mean what you see is correct.
Quincy kill hollows, but they aren't completely annihilated/teleported to Yhwach's stomach, the remains just keep building up on earth and never go to SS.
aizen couldn't fuck with his future sight because that would require aizen to also have that ability
how can be make alterations to what yawach sees if he can't see the future himself lmao
You do realize Aizen isn't actually imprisoned, right? Everything that was done to him, he allowed. Whether he actually plans to "escape" remains to be seen, but he could if he wanted.
The funniest thing about this is that Kubo straight up told us to look at his beard. Look at the chapter title Ywach debuted in.
There's nothing really entertaining for me with fights like this.
>My ability will defeat you
>Nuh uh, my ability is better than every ability ever, even in the future, so nothing can hurt me!
Ichigo is just going to do some super final getsuga tenshou and beat him anyway.
Yeah it was his plan getting captured by Urahara. Totally keikaku.
Even if he didn't want to escape, it was because he was batshit scared to escape.
Also he still cannot escape because now Ichigo will rape him to shreds
>Yfw Aizen's bankai lets him extend his illusions into the past and future, changing your memories and expectations.
>"Who said illusions only extended to the five senses?"
>"Since when were you under the impression my keikaku wasn't four dimensional?"
WHAT DOES THIS SHIT EVEN DO
Does he see into the future? Then how does he kill the monk?
Does he steal powers?
Is he just fucking omnipotent?
>Kill him with what I wonder. Brute force? Ichigo beats people just by out lasering them.
Ichigo just unlocked his real power for the first time a few chapters back. It's most likely more than "just lasers" now.
Before that point it was an imitation, just the small part of his true abilities that his inner quincy couldn't hold back, now it's real. There's no bigger time to give him more powers than now, as he'll do Shikai and Bankai for real.
>never chapter opens with the backgrounds rippling
>Shutara has her back turned to Yhwach
>"Did you really think we each fought alone?"
>Monk is unharmed smiling
>"Thanks for explaining your power to me."
This was why we needed two chapters to explain it. He could already manipulate power if he could understand it. His eyes allow him to understand everything he sees and therefore make use of all abilities he sees. His eyes also allow him to see the future in a sort of miniature Laplace's Demon type deal with respect to abilities he "knows", meaning he can create perfect counter-measures on a dime to anything he understands.
Bach can probably just look at women with his magic future-predicting eyes and know what it would be like to fuck them, on top of what they look like naked.
yeah I know, but that's just something I noticed. this is a hypothesis thread man.
look, soul king is omniscient, has an eye that stronly looks like he has 4 irises (at least has 3 we sa).
Bach, the strongest quincy entity, no, an actual quincy god, coming for the soul king, has at least 3 irises we saw.
now, as you may know, manga irises are all different in size and stuff, so the only real difference between the irises of the soul king and bach may be the size/color. here's his eyes in black, looks pretty similar to me.
Well we haven't seen Shutara since he last illusion reveal, so maybe she was creating another?
As much as I'm getting tired of this Monk fight, the more we see the more likely the rest of the RG job off screen, which is a shame since they had some unique abilities that deserved to be seen.
But he's the King! Quincy bitches drench themselves at the sight of him. He can just take whoever he wants; it's not like they can stop him. Hell, look at what happened to Harribel
The monk was killed by his own power
>When I know of a power, I'll make use of that power
There was a theory in a thread.
Bach is a soul eater. He gives out powers and takes them back when they die along with their souls.
Soul King is probably has a less deadly type of power than his.
They both have huge loads of souls inside them. Making them an abomination. Thus the reason Aizen hates Soul King, because he can do whatever the fuck he wants, just like Bach giving out miracles and powers.
Basicly they are like polars and opposites. And Ichigo is a magnet having both polar sides.
And this also explains why everyone is after Ichigo's dick. His dick is a bitch attracting spirit power ejaculating magnet
Only way to beat him is to not explain your ability.
It's said that he sees all from the future, and that if he knows how something works it won't work on him. By the time you've started explaining "My ability reverses gravity and-", he's already heard that explanation from the future and has made himself perfect against it.
Your ability must be incomprehensible, not understandable, and don't explain it even after beating him so he doesn't know what to reject from the future.
Paint it Black you dolt
Everything he sees he understands, and everything he understands cant harm him. Either Aizen's hypnosis or Ichigo's HEART will be the end of him.'
Now that I think of it, it's an analogue for mankind against the nature. Starting as a blind baby that cannot see or hear, becoming ever more powerful through conflict and gaining understanding of the world around him. Even a tsunami is nothing to us these days, when we can detect it in advance.
I'm betting Monk is still alive, he was only stalling Yhwach meanwhile RG make some illusions and shit and prepare a sneak attack against him (considering Monk used a level 200 Kidou and simply waited to use it
It was just something noted some chapters back, when the Captain's got their Bankai back because the Quincy exploded due to the partial hollowization. Quincy can't handle hollows being in them typically. Also noted in the flashback, as a hollow injecting into a Quincy will make them impure, less powerful.
Also think about how he attacked Hueco first above everything else, he was afraid of what they might represent. Even before the Shinigami, he needed to subjugate them.
Ichigo is an exception because the hollow in him has meshed in a strange way.
I see that everyone has forgotten about the two lines that Monk drew in the ground.
I'm inclined to believe that, even if Monk is dead, the lines will still act as a booby trap. So far it doesn't seem like Yhwach has understood the lines either.
That's not how Kubo rolls, it's clear now the RG were just a plot device to give Ichigo and a few of the popular characters a power boost, and were then hyped up so they could job to the Quincy and make Yhwach look like even more of a thread.
Monk is kill, all the other RG members are kill, probably off screen, too.
>Monk uses darkness as his powers
>Kyorukaru cuts colours.
>Kyouraku can 1 shot Monk so easily.
Calling it Kamikake is a plan to take out both Royal Guard and slow down Yhwach until Ichigo catches up
Yeah, Shunsui definitely has something going on besides just going to defeat the Quincy. He seemed pissed when the RG showed up, and was combative towards monk. I have a feeling he won't be sad to see them go.
Shunsui and Ukitake always had some kind of secretive plan for Soul Society as a whole, they are just letting things unfold and using Ichigo to reach their objectives (just like they probably used Aizen, since neither of them ever tried to fight the guy seriously).
Not that I'm saying those guys are bad, but they just probably didn't agree with the way SS were doing things.
It's only a matter of willpower to make them completely harmless. We have the resources to build whatever we need for it. We just don't care about the third world, and why should we?
Earthquakes, too, have lost their edge with technology.
i'll forgive your impudence on account of quads but still
we can't even predict them bitches outside of shitty statistical analysis like this mountain explodes once in a million years
>lmaoing my ass off
>laughing my ass off laughing my ass off
I'm sure he meant pipes being more resistant breaking or rupturing, frames being sturdier and tougher, etc. The 5/4.0's in the lower half of Commiefornia earlier this year made almost everyone lose their shit here, not much damage to newer buildings other than the insides.
But strong earthquakes will still fuck shit up.
He knows Ichigo can't/won't return to living world, and was bullshitting them about the chances being low.
