The Aizen Returns & Ukitake Dies Thread
Nth for Aizen is not gonna be in his chair, some poor Quincy faggot is, or more likely momo, and he will proceed to hijack the plot again because Aizen and the fact captain TB finally gave him a way too.
>You must me truly desperate to come to me for help
WE JUST GOT KUBO'D AGAIN.
Five years after Bleach's ending Kubo will release a single databook containing info on the abilities of all the people that have been killed off prior to revealing them and clarifications to all the readers below level 3.
It will never be translated.
>Anon hasn't gone back to notice that literally everything in the entire series is due to Aizen doing Aizen shit, and all of it has gone according to plan
Anon confirmed for level 0 reader.
>we see bazz-b but not giselle
worst chapter ever
every one close to Rukia dies! (remember Kubo had originally planned to kill of Byakuya)
Place your bets on the next victim of the Rukia curse
If Bazz survived the direct shot, when Gigi, Liltotto and maybe even Meninas have all made it!
i think what hes worried about is what the crap is aizen trying to pull by this point, because quincy king revealed his cards and if he goes first then he probably knows aizen WILL show up and fuck everything up like he always does.
>Quincies surviving without their powers
This is actually pretty fucking great. Lends credit to the assumption that Yhwach lied when he said that Uryuu was special for surviving. Lets hope that they all don't die now like Kanae.
What are you talking about? Weeks ago, we predicted that Ukitake had taken a piece of the Soul King into him and Shunsui was going to Aizen.
Only surprise was that Ukitake had the Soul King's essence, which was once worshiped as a god, inside him all along.
WHY THE FUCK IS KYORAKU ASKING HELP TO AIZEN,THE MAN SO STUPID HE DIDN'T USE HIS SHIKAI AGAINST ICHIGO AND WILL SURELY TRY TO FUCK UP SS ONCE AGAIN WORSENING THE SITUATION
Yes,i'm kind of mad. What the fuck. Damn you Kubo.
Not that guy but the wounds he got from Ass Knot are pretty much unsurvivable, and the whole "Protect Rukia" scene and shit would have made it one of the best deaths ever. But when fujos complained with the magic or editors he miraculously survives.
they probably did. Kubo seems to like them and will probably keep them around for revealing quincy plot details.
also i suspect Accutrone only died because he'd just been trashed by Byakuya and was incredibly low on retiatsu at that point, or was using his quincies powers to keep himself alive (or both)
>implying the fullbringer folk arn't part of aizens clusterfuck of a plot.
i'm still convinced his entire plot was made to:
A. have created an overpowered as almighty fuck being such as ichigo basically become the next head of SS underneath him
B. take over the whole damn mess in a way where literally everybody can do jack shit about it
C. Off the damn soul king which happened.
D. Screw the current system of SS over in its entirety.
We already know Gigi and whoever the fuck survived
They were covered by rocks at the time so the light couldn't touch them. Ducking into a nearby cave of sorts after watching that one guy die.
We know they survived at this point
I have enjoyed this arc too but seriously? Who are they gonna fight for more than 50 more chapters? We have powerless Quincies, the revived Elite Quincies, Haschwalth, and Yhwach. It's gonna take some major change in setting and a bunch of new characters for this to only be the middle of this arc. I doubt that and I think this is all too climactic for 100 more chaps.
Giselle could be easily killed off by Mayuri, it seems what his or her popularity has a role on it.
Also, I'm mad what Accutrone's and Nanana's letter were never revealed.
>Not realizing that just the actual final battle will take 50+ chapters alone.
>Still a million characters who haven't fought yet.
Bleach could end in 3 chapter, 30 chapters, or 300 chapters.
Theme song of the thread:
I can tell you've never been true to me.
I can smell that you're acting so fearfully.
I can hear what you're hoping I want to hear.
I can feel the alarm bells ringing in me.
I can touch but I know you don't feel a thing.
I can pray but I know you commit a sin.
I can sense now it's all become clear to see.
You're no good, and you mean no good, treacherously.
Maybe he was actually rusing?
Anyway I reckon orihike will turn out to be sternritter & and she gains the ability to fuse quincy together
So ichigo has to fight AA Yhwach-Uryuu
Have you? Hachi was there and Unohana arrived with Ichigo and then Orihime would show up later. http://www.mangapanda.com/bleach/502/6
The only people near Byakuya got rekt and so did he, presumably his insides were shredded by his bankai.
For the last time, the closest English equivalent is Ace Nert.
I'm glad that Byakuya lived. That fight with As was not even that great- killing off a major character like that is more disappointing than tragic. That type of stuff works better in seinen.
Those donated to by the soul king cannot use bankai.
Thats why aizen never used it.
Thats why kyoraku never used it.
Thats why zaraki will never use it.
Thats why ichigo never used it and was only tricked by bach.
Byakuya was less injured and it was only like two minutes max after he talked to Ichigo that Bach left. So lets say within 5 minutes of getting to Unohana, with less severe injures than we've seen in the series.
It's just fan theories. But Kubo did make a big deal about him essentially passing his will of Protecting the SS to Ichigo and then had his Zan break apart implying he died. There was also Kubo giving Byakuya the volume cover and a passing on poem, only for Kubo to mention after we see Byakuya alive, that he should've given the poem and vol cover to Chojiro, Yamajii's vice-captain.
But it's just fanon at the end.
also you need to have a bankai to be captain, ken was the only exception
>That Ukitake reveal
This is some Axe Cop tier shit. I feel like the moment Kubo had that meeting with his editors and made the aftertimeskip storyboard, Bleach became even more retarded.
And then s/he got raped by Kenpachi. Who always rapes when he fights. He rapes anything in his way.
Nanana's is U and Robert's is N. The abilities are unknown however. Disappointing for Nanana, who seemed to have some epic Quincy power to use against Renji, and disappointing for Robert, who clearly had a lot of strength he never got to show. Perhaps their abilities have been transferred and will be used epically, or maybe it'll just be trashy databook trivia.
Thank you based kubo.
it cuts anything, its not hard to figure out anon.
literally time, space, conceptual shit, quite literally anything that can conceivably be cut, is cut by kenpachis shikai, as expected of the strongest.
Right? OST 3 was the best
each episode is like 2-3 chapters and so the anime would catch up to the manga real quick and so filler arcs need to be made while the story progresses. and we all know how much /a/ likes the fillers
So how long before someone finds a background extra from the early chapters with the symbol of this god on a shirt or something ?
Kubo might be fucking with us more than you realize
>Anyone who doesn't want the world destroyed at the moment, is a reluctant ally of sorts.
Aizen wanted to fuck the soul king up as well though. Was he going to replace him or something?
>but suppressed and weaker than it should have been.
jesus christ how strong is ichigo anyways?
also odds are ichigo like the retard he is will never actually figure out what in the fuck it does, so yhwach is screwed.
ost 3 is goat, but 1 is also fantastic. had such a great, raw sound. its nice in comparrison to the more complicated tracks that came out of the later OST/Movie OSTs
he was only able to cut physical things before, nigga can cut conceptual bullshit now.
for example you have some dumb bastard with literal immortal armor, kenpachi can cut that and explode the poor fool inside.
Well i would assume his true hollow/shinigami powers unsuppressed and trained would be around his hollow form, right? Plus then you add the quincy powers. I wonder if his new Bankai will have a cool ability or if it'll still be speed related.
I hope he has a kind of two mode Bankai revolving around his powers. Like mode one is Shinigami/Hollow that's like his old 2fast2furious bankai, the second is using his quincy powers to an extent and using blut vene to tank shit.
Took quite a while but i guess we can throw this theory away now
Tottally didn't see that coming
Because you can't see an asspull
>and then God Hand Hand God offered to help Sick Lungs Baby, and he became Secret Soul Hand Baby, who grew up and became Reflector Spirit Captain Man. Until the day he had to became God Hand Hand God himself to save everyone. But his sick blood touched them and turned them into the Hand Foot leg arm tail Gotei Limb Team. And then they were all the new Soul King. And they killed Yhwach together on a single color page. The end.
Yeah, I guess you could put it that way, Naruto forums.
Calling it now. Hollowgami side fire's Getsuga's which are like Ceros. Quincy side absorbs reiatsu and does the other Getsuga. Shinigami fight with their own power and Quincy's gather power around them, Ichigo will do both for double getsuga.
Agree. 1 had this minimalism that just sounded good.
My favorite OST 1 tracks
What if Aizen also has a part of the SK in him and that's how he knew the SK? Uharaha made pretty clear that Aizen had seen the SK. So did Urahara.
What if Aizen sacrificed his heart for the SK like Ukitake did with his lungs? That's why he is so obsessed with becoming god and is so narcissistic. His heart is the heart of a god.
>Also, Ichigo yelled to Whywaaaagh "I'm going to CHOP YOUR HEAD OFF"
Mimihagi-sama is SK's fucking arm, even has the same "eye"-schtick. It's literally the same god and SK is the father to the father of all Quincies, so yes Ukitake is still part Quincy by merit of having primordial proto Quincy-parts in him.
The sound that starts at 0.25 was always the coolest shit. That and the one I posted were always my favourite. The first OST was by far the best. I always felt the music got a bit generic later on and they reused stuff too much.
Now that the end is really in sight, I'm really disappointed in how kubo didn't go in depth about the soul society. How did the shiba clan lose its status? Who runs hell? Why does ice shota never age? What are the other districts like? Looking back, this whole series feels like wasted potential.
It's always been wasted potential. It was a really good concept with an author and editors that have very bad writing capabilities.
Happens to most manga/anime related things, really.
Nevertheless, it's been a fun ride, sort of.
Great chapter after quite a while. I mean tTwo plot points, which both were probably actually planned from the very beginning in one chapter, that's as good as it gets.
Kubo please, don't ruin it by another asspull.
>Who runs hell?
Anime staff ruined any chance for a hell arc
>Why does ice shota never age?
He does just not that fast
>What are the other districts like?
Poor as shit.
Its not going to end soon.
That's some serious mental gymnastics to make Ukitake a quincy, but I'll go with it.
Also I could have sworn the soul king had limbs until recently. So unless he can throw his limbs into the past it all feels a little rushed to me.
I think this SK is not the original SK. His lack of limbs imply he was enslaved.
I think the SK is replaced from time to time and he's just there to keep balance. The original one is the one that created all things.
This would restore my faith in Kubo-sama entirely. The place is dark so Aizen can't be seen and he also hasn't responded, maybe because it's fucking Bach now strapped down entirely covering his mouth as well.
Aizen went "Brb, it's time to conquer that sweet ass throne."
Ichirin no hana and Asterisk equal.
>next week is Kyoraku finds this out
>chapter ends with showing back to Ichigo vs "bach" with "bach" saying "Shatter, Kyoga Suigetsu"
shit would be hype as hell and off the hook.
>Ukitake about to die
>all your favorites are destined to die
>There will never be a Bleach VR game
>You'll never chase Yoruichi's sexy ass
>You'll never run from Kenpachi trying to spar with you
>You'll never have a nice cup of tea with Kyoraku
>You'll never get your mind fucked by Aizen
also I remember this was the time I realize that Ichigo-gary-stu
>Shinigami >Shikai >Bankai
Then Aizen came and became the MC
Maybe its just a self governing dimension created by the soul king, operating like an immune system. Would explain why Ichigo gained the power of hell in that movie, the system recognized him as trying to kill the escapee.
Aizen is immortal right so how does Ywach beat him? Can he steal his hogyoku or will it just willingy transfer to Ywach.
>If his right arm was cast into Soul Society, his left arm was probably cast into the Human Realm. That could be Yhwach's origin.
>tfw all your favourites are still alive
>tfw they're all plot armoured, have survived attempts at removal, actually immortal or too minor to be bothered with
feels good man.
except for starrk. RIPIP
Aizen is the only one who can counter Yhwach currently.
>Yhwach can see into the past, present and future
>Aizen just makes him see illusions constantly so he'll see illusions in recent past, the present and in the future
He's basically triple fucked.
>>Shinigami >Shikai >Bankai
That list is so redundant. Its like saying something thats orange is orange, red and yellow just because red and yellow make up orange.
>Starrk is kill
>meanwhile sharktits got a free ticket to survive and wasted it getting rekt by fucking Quincy
Wake me from this hell.
are you really so delusional as to believe Aizen is about to hijack the plot when you never really believed he had left? Most of you fags still think everything past deicide is an illusion. I ain't even mad.
Just because you know his power is illusions and manipulating the senses doesn't mean you can do shit about it. Most abilities in Bleach have a severe weakness, Aizen's only weakness is if you are touching the blade as he releases. Fail to do that and you're fucked. Can't trust your senses anymore.
>implying hes not simply going to highjack the damn kamikake as soon as next chapter goes around
>implying that +the Hongyouku won't cause all kinds of aizen bullshit to happen again.
Wait a minute.
>Aizen can make you see whatever he wants you to see
>Buckbeard can see everything
So does Buckbeard see that Aizen is making him see something? Can Aizen just make Buckbeard think he is seeing Aizen make him seeing something else?
This is gong to get too complicated. Kubo will probably just have them shoot beams at each other.
Aizen can make Yhwach feel like he's getting buttfucked by an angry Yamamoto in Bankai if he wanted to. He can manipulate your sense of touch to make you feel like there's a big flaming dick being shoved up your ass.
No, I don't. Kyouka Suigetsu allows for complete manipulation of the senses. So far Aizen has been using it lightly like "Making people think I'm there while I'm actually somewhere else" or "Making people think someone is me".
touching the blade is only one way to overcome it. You can do it through Reiatsu sensing as well.
Also friendly reminder that Ginjo taught Ichigo to "see" Reiatsu (like Tousen). Not just sense its general location and strength, but to "see" it so clearly that you can fight using it.
So yeah, Ichigo should be immune to Kyoka Suigetsu/Sakanade because none of them affect the ability to sense reiatsu
But Buckbeard will see that Aizen is making him feel the dick, since you know, he can see everything. What I want to know is will he see that Aizen is making him see that Aizen is putting a dick up his ass and how many layers deep we can go with this. There could be like infinite dicks layered with the illusion that AIzen wants him to see that between every individual dick. Can buckbeard see through them all?
How it's activated? All Aizen has to do is say "Kyouka Suigetsu" while holding his sword and you're already fucked. Its release is invisible because Aizen is already manipulating your senses.
I say if YH can counteract namechanging powers and name erasing powers using his prediction, he can well enough prepare for Aizen's Shikai. That is, assuming his Zan isnt permamently broken.
Well this explains were the Quincy Shadow come from
>quincies are descendants from SK
>SK's right hand at the very least takes the form of a shadow
There might be a connection
inb4 Kyoraku is the Left Hand (secret bankai, shadow powers)
>it cuts anything, its not hard to figure out anon. literally time, space, conceptual shit, quite literally anything that can conceivably be cut
There's nothing even remotely implying that he can cut everything and it doesn't fit Zaraki's character either. Plus we already had that with Facebook and Kubo is a hack but not that much of a hack.
E. instate his puppet king (ichigo) and then what
We don't know how this whole process works. If it all returns to nothing is that a blank white space filled with energy/matter to build a new world? Is there no energy/matter? Does the SK have control of that process or is it someone else? How do you gain that level of control, what is it exactly that denotes an entity as SK (assuming this is a sort of 'there must always be one of this entity at all times or the universe just blips out of existence').
This issue is the same as naruto's, the greater mythology of the world is finally coming into play right at the fucking end in info dumps, rather than being apart of the scenery that we slowly learn about.
Shit can go in what ever direction kubo wants.
Yea, that is exactly what I'm implying, because that's what Bach implied. It's as reliable an argument as everything you're trying to say about kyouka suigetsu, the difference being I'm actually using evidence from the manga.
If ichigo had discarded Zangetsu (Yhwach) and Simply kept Zangetsu (Hollow), would Juha been able to control him through Blut
but seriously, all homo aside, why is the best chemistry between Ichigo and Aizen?
You see him attacking through a hole/crack while getting surrounded by space. That doesn't mean he opened the rift himself. He could have just attacked before getting completely sucked.
Gremmy made the tear in space not Ken. He still got fucked up from it.
>and walked back in after he literally got removed from it in the gremmy fight
Stop talking out of your ass.
We're about to split the SS into factions.
Ichigo's about to get used as a puppet and mindfucked by all parties as they vie for him to support them.
Urahara, Aizen, Bach each want to direct how this turns out for their own agenda (being the one who dictates how the world is formed by the new SK, I doubt any of them actually want to become sealed).
Then each groups got their own support goons FBs, what few capts/vcs remain, Ichigos friends, few quincy and a couple hollows. Each of those could split again because of lolgrudge, as I find it bullshit that all of them are going to come together at this stage since the lore of the world doesn't seem to be common knowledge, so they'll be at each other throats over 'your exposition on how the world works is sheer bullshit'.

If Aizen was a girl it would be better than IchiRuki
On a scale of 1 to Kubo, how mad would you be if Aizen sacrificed himself so they could win in some sort of BS 180 redemption that destroyed hundreds of chapters of character building?
I would be mad as fuck.
The only acceptable ending is Aizen getting away, becoming a king again and being untouchable. Perhaps he promises a ceasefire, but scott clean is the only ending he can have in my eyes.
But there are two of those things right? Wasn't it formed by condensed souls or something?
Is that a lead into what the SK is? I don't recall it being a 'soul ball' (since that's what hollows are as well). It's just a MacGuffin whose use changes as needed.
Show your face when Aizen calmly says "Bankai".
He's like a grandfather that wants his grandson to accept his heritage
>HEY SON I FOUND MY OLD SS QUINCY UNIFORM, WEAR IT FOR THE DANCE, I KNOW THAT FILTHY GINGER HAS BEEN EYEING YOU
I am pretty sure Aizen is gonna roll with Ichigo since he is the only one that understands him.
Even weird since hell's not mentioned in the list of planes that are getting fucked up right? So is it outside the real world/ss/mexico/void system? Are there just meant to be two planes, hell and what ever exists without a SK. How the fuck would the soul system work if that was the case.
>Rukia won't be able to get Ichigo out of his funk because she'll be in one of her own.
>"since when were you under the impression I wasn't using my bankai"
If Aizen is released doesnt it mean he would want to stop Ukitake from replacing the Soul King?
>shunsui is sitting in the chair
>aizen is the one standing in shunsui's place
>"So aizen sosuke, have you had enough fun yet in my place?"
>"shut up, I need you to prevent the world from collapsing."
>"Only you can control the darkness where my sword refuses to reach"
inb4 shunsui is out of the chair already without aizens help and him and aizen race to ukitake and company with him using his bankai to play in the collapsing world somehow stabilizing it long enough for a new soul king to be found
That's basically what Yhwach started out as. Kisuke and Aizen probably diverted a large number of souls away from the soul king in order to break the rules; obtain hollowfication, make arrancars, ect.
It depends on what AIzen wanted the soul king to be doing. If Ukitake just becomes another husk then Aizen would still be pissed but if he can actually do things Aizen might be cool.
>But there are two of those things right? Wasn't it formed by condensed souls or something?
No Aizen fed Urahara's to his and are either gone or inside of him.
I think Aizen said his was, I don't believe we ever heard how Urahara made his but I'd assume its similar.
>tfw I can see this happening

You know what Ukitake's death means, right?
More Rukia time, ayyyyyy.
Kubo Face When
One says that Ichigo wins because of the Hyogokus powers granting him his wish of defeating Aizen.
Other says that the Hyogoku grants Aizen his wish of being able to keep up with his plan. Hence why he can't lose and is jailed instead.
And the last one is the one you are saying. It's not that he wanted to lose per se, it's just that Ichigo wonders (after trading hits with Aizen) if Aizen just wanted to have someone on his level to see things like he did and to understand him. Ichigo wonders if Aizen wanted to just be a ormal shinigami.
The first one doesn't make sense because the Hyogoku didn't reject Aizen totally and he still has its powers.
The third one doesn't make sense because Aizen is far from being a normal shinigami.
>tfw the exodia pieces fail to combine into a new soul king, so aizen jumps at the chance to take the king's place, not knowing that becoming soul king means sealing yourself for eternity
aizen immortality + forever suspended in a cocoon = aizen will never leave vegetable status after becoming king
Bleach never sold a million per month
it got close with 700-800k for like a volume or two but thats it.
Bleach on average has always sells 500-600k in a month per volume
2008 4 volumes 3.1 million
2009 6 volumes 3.5 million
2010 6 volumes 5.2 million end of the arrancar arc
2011 first half 2 volumes 1.9 million
2012 4 volumes 2.9 million
2011 950k the actual 2 volumes released did 734k
>people thinking Aizen is Yhwach
>not this fucker
theres been something going on with Ukitake and his use of kamikake for a long time. there was a scene earlier in the manga when the show him treating himself and he needs to use mimihagi-sama
that shit has beent foreshadowed
>Ichigo's about to get used as a puppet and mindfucked by all parties as they vie for him to support them.
Speaking subjectively, each of the 30 chapters has been better than every chapter of bleach combined. So yes it does have something on bleach.
>tfw I just realised he was never wearing glasses in the first place and those aren't his glasses breaking up but the illusion dissipating
>head captain shota
Weren't we predicting that Ukitake was Aizen, which led to the "gods don't start at the top" discussion?
Watch as Aizen seals himself to save the world
