Their story line was actually pretty good. Almost worthy of its own manga. Better than Bleach has been in a long time.
>>
>>133112516
That's the main problem with Bleach. Most of the side-characters and even villains are written much better than Ichi-shit.
>>
>>133113060

Yeah, I'm actually curious to see what kind of role Jugo is going to play now. Bazz-B also surpassed being a Renji/Grimjow type clone.
>>
>>133112516
>not putting Bleach in the thread title

It was a nice change of pace to see the Sternritter in an earlier time period; we certainly need more background regarding the first Shinigami/Quincy war.

>>133113344
He's either the Ulquiorra-style mid boss for Ichigo or he's the true Final Boss.
>>
>>133115598
>true Final Boss

I am much more inclined to believe this.

He's just that background shounen villain waiting to unleash his ridiculous power-up. Like we seen Yhwach fighting multiple times already.
>>
>>133112516
Too bad Bazz-B was keked by Yuha and then killed by his childhood love.
>>
>>133112516
I did not give one single fuck about that whole thing. During that time I was just checking the updates to see whether or not that shit was over so I could read it again.
>>
>>133117957
I thought their flashback was going to lead into the first Gotei vs. Wandenreich war, but instead it was a story about how senpai didn't notice Bazz.
>>
I haven't really reread this arc in a while but I'm just really confused about who these Quincies are? Are they all just ones that Kurotsuchi missed? Are they really 1000 years old? I thought Quincies were just regular humans with superpowers. From As Nodt's flashback I assumed that they were people with Quincy DNA in them like Ichigo that Yhwach found, but now they're apparently people from a different dimension?
>>
>>133118093
Some are from 1000 years ago, some are younger like As Nodt. For all we know, Uryu is the only Quincy who was born recently.
>>
>>133112516
I'm so confused. If Quincies are humans, then how come their life span is that of a Shinigami? Also, if bazz and jugo childhood seems to conflict with modern times, at least with the lifestyles and architecture.
>>
>>133112516
i still didnt feel a thing with their side story, but as >>133113344 said, at least Bazz-B went from a Renji clone to an actual character

It was pretty okay. I preferred Urahara's/Yourichi's past arc.
>>
>>133118328
They have human bodies, but their souls aren't human. So I guess it's thanks to Yhwach's mumbo jumbo quincy schmincy magic that they are just souls and thus don't age.
>>
>>133118328
Quincy are already dead.

The main problem with Bleach is that every time Kubo tries to explore side characters and anything non-kimono samurai, the readers vote him down into oblivion and the editors ask him to go back to shinigami.
>>
>>133118757
kek senpai desu senpai SJW
>>
>>133118093
These quincies are those who escaped the first Shinigami purge by moving to an alternate soul dimension in the shadows of Soul Society and were later descendants of survivors of the purge stuck on Earth who gained powers from Yhwach as he gradually woke up.

>>133118328
Quincy are humans with special powers originally from Earth.

Which I can kind of get for that piece of shit, Fullbringer arc, but the Quincy stuff is interesting.

I'd like to learn more about some of these guys, but I also don't want Kubo to draw the manga out longer than he already has.
>>
So when will Ryuken come into this arc?
Or the Fullbringers?
>>
What's your deal with Ichigo, /a/? He's very fleshed out and developed for a shounen MC, he also breaks the mold of hard work and effort dumbasses turning out to have amazing bloodlines and latent talents, he is gifted and smart from the onset, only growing stronger through gaining mastery of his hereditary abilities and gaining experience. Yet everyone shits on him and say he's bland.

I shit on him because he's a useful idiot who killed Ginjo for no real reason and is constantly played like a fiddle by Yhwach.

Although the latter is quite entertaining.

I wonder how the series would had gone had Kubo had free hands.
As far as I understand, rest of Ichigos friends were supposed to gain some kind of powers alike to Chad and Orihime before Soul Society arc.
Chad vs a Sternritter ever?
>>
>>133124208
Yeah, and Byakuya was supposed to die, and the Shinigami were going to stay bad guys.
>>
>>133124123
He killed Ginjo because he was dangerous to other shinigami as well as other humans and fullbringers. He also wanted revenge and his intuition at least in regards to Ukitake was right.
Ichigo at that point in the manga wanted power and he was given power with trust from the shinigami.

Also a random observation, but Yhwach claims that Ichigo is currently at the level he was at when he defeated Aizen.
>>
>>133124406
>Also a random observation, but Yhwach claims that Ichigo is currently at the level he was at when he defeated Aizen.
didn't aizen specifically say otherwise?
>>
>>133124450
The last comment Aizen made in regards to his power was when Ichigo lost it after using Mugetsu. I don't know if Yhwach meant that Ichigo momentarily reached that level when he killed the soul king with arterie, or if he has been at that level ever since he unleashed the true zangetsu.
There are signs of him momentarily becoming unreadable, but when he approached the shakonmaku after training in the Soul King palace even Rukia could sense his reiatsu. It might be due to a "resonance" like when Yamamoto went to face Yhwach however, meaning that she's not feeling his reiatsu, but rather how it affects his surroundings.

Beinv in the shadow realm allowed them to age at a much slower rate then humans. Which is why they seem to age as shinigami do.
>>
>>133118328
>>133124655
Some of them are from the human world, like As Nodt and Lloyds who were shown in a modern hospital.

When was that?
>>
>>133124849
It's sadly amusing how Yhwach appeared to As Nodt with a large bushy stache, but had a tiny pedo stache in his first chronological appearance. Why is Kubo so inconsistent?

Chapter 619

Yhwach:高めたその力は藍染惣右介を倒す為に
That augmented power served the purpose of defeating Aizen Sousuke

Yhwach:そして
And then
Yhwach:藍染惣右介を倒し失った力を
You regained the power
Yhwach:再び取り戻したのは
You had lost defeating Aizen Sousuke
Yhwach:私の眼前で霊王の命を断つ為だったのだ
In order to dispatch the Spirit King before my very eyes
>>
>>133125028
But if Ichigo has regained that power, why is it that everyone can feel his reiatsu?
>>
>>133125152
One reason might be because he's suppressing it. Another may be linked to Yhwach's seeming inability to predict Ichigo's future and him underestimating Mugetsu's power.
>>
maybe Ichigo will go unreadable during Bankai.

Also I find it weird people can still read Ywach. He's the soul king now
>>
>>133125023
It could be that As Nodt was recruited after his chronological appearance.

That would be odd though.
>>
>>133125352
Or Yhwach just shaved.
>>
>>133125349
Maybe Kubo forgot the "unreadable" thing? Even Aizen can be felt now, despite supposedly becoming stronger in Muken.
>>
>>133125411
Nobody is feeling his reiatsu, being felt and being seen by someone whose very power is reiatsu pattern recognition are not the same.

What's Ukitake's bankai?
What's Urahara's bankai?
What's Aizen's bankai if he has one?
How can Isshin's bankai be relevant if Ryujin Jakka was the most powerful fire Zanpakuto?
What is Hado #99?
>>
>>133125152
remember that Ichigo was in bankai when he fought Aizen. Now usually bankai only effects the sword (ie a x5-x10 increase in the swords power), but since he was so strongly connected with it (to the point he had literally merged with it) the boost may have been applied directly to his own reiatsu

alternatively, he's just suppressing it right now
>>
>>133125591
Ukitake: teleportation
Urahara: random conceptual shit not unlike Shunsui's bankai
Aizen: illusions become reality
Isshin: just fire and inferno instead of sun blade
Hado #99: you become the background
>>
>>133125753
Rose's bankai already makes illusions real
>>
>>133117957
So you could see filler characters from the Gotei 13 putting funny faces and running? Outside from real battles and flashbacks that's the only thing we get.

Lille says that he does not need a body any more and uses a technique to become omnipresent, essentially he became "soul society itself" and he used this power to brutally shoot and kill Shunsui through his chest. Shunsui falls back down and Ohana places catches him on her lap. At that time Lille notices that the area around him is becoming darker and his powers are leaving him. Shunsui and Ohana become glowing white and begin dissolving. Lille disappears when the pair has fully vanished.

So, no explanation why they all disappear? Sounds like something Kubo would do.

The implication is that they all die and disappear and that Shunsui's bankai was a "destiny bond" sort of deal.

Not many enemies are left, so a year should be enough.

>>133131058
and the rest. even if he found a way to shove every remaining bankai down our throats wall to wall it wouldnt be over for at least 4yrs

>>133130990

Probably end in late 2016 or early 2017.

Depends if we get Ichigo vs Aizen II after this. That might add a few months to the manga.
>>
>>133131893
1st level reader. Aizen is on their side now
>>
>>133131596
Well let's see. Lille will probably die in the upcoming chapter, so that leaves two Elites, Jugo and Yuha. Even if you give the Elites+Jugo five chapters each for their fights and ten to Yhwach, that will only last half a year. Another half is more than enough to cover everything else.
>>
>>133118821
>readers vote him down
Like, from the usual 10th place to 15th place ?
Does it even matter ? It's pretty clear at this point Kubo has the freedom to wrap up the series however he wants and rankings are no longer a concern for him.
>>
>>133132036
Aizen isn't on anyone's side but his own. But it doesn't matter because Yhwach will kill him.
>>
>>133132074
im expecting a run in from lisa and nanao and then deity ukitake.


theres a reason kubo made kyoraku run to the place they entered wahrwelt - so the save can be made from someone using that door. otherwise it wouldve just been kyoraku saying 'ok i got far enough away from everyone'. devils in the detail though - he said he was right next to the entrance to WW.
>>
>>133130990
He's doing away with the SS without even introducing the 5 war potentials, so my guess is that Kubo is going to bring out even more fodders in the near future. Yhwach still has the rank and file converted soldiers he can beef up now that he's a god.
>>
>>133132128
Lisa was offpaneled. Unless Kubo retcons it.
>>
>>133132344
You know. I'm very confident that all the off panel nonsense happening this arch to speed things up will be fixed in the anime revival when the manga actually ends. It'll all end up canon, because Kubo will have nothing better to do but oversee the process.
>>
>>133132344
he will just make her have healed. she will know what his bankai is like.
>>
>>133132334

Again with this "war potentials" horseshit. Why do you autists always attach such significance to every little concept that Kubo introduces? Did you learn nothing from the Vasto Lorde gimmick? This is this arc's version of that. If Kubo ever addresses it again, it will be a passing remark in dialog.
>>
>>133132334
im expecting a new redistribution of power. yhwach said it himself 'ive got too much power'. so why not auswahlen the SR back to life?
>>
>>133132749
its win-win for him. assuming he even still needs souls having absorbed reio.
>>
>>133132603
It's important. Yhwach has the likes of Yamamoto and Zaraki in its ranks, with Ichigo regarded as the most dangerous member and Yamamoto excluded because he's "too soft". There is way too much hype for it to go unresolved. And Kubo did deliver on the VLs during the HM arc. The suspected VLs Starrk, Barragan and Halibel as well as the VL killer Ulquiorra were all savagely strong.
There are too many fighters currently standing on the field and we've seen random nameless Quincies with the Sternritter in the palace before. There are also too many loose threads for Bleach to end any time in the near future. It may have 2-4 years left.
>>133132749
Exactly, the SR are 'loyal' to the current established power. The don't care about who is in charge, all that has changed is who is the bearer of the universe. Komamura's great grandfather said so. They are going to protect Yhwach because right now that is the same as protecting Soul Society and now the gotei 13 are the heretics putting the universe in danger.
>>
>>133132749
Or better yet, the Royal Guard?

But seriously it will take a year and a half just to beat Yhwach Uryu and Jugram desu
>>
>>133132412

The anime is never coming back. Sorry to burst your bubble. Bleach is declining in popularity as it is. There is no money to be made in doing so, and even if there were, you wouldn't be satisfied anyway unless all the original VA's returned and the animation was top tier. Which won't happen. So what's the point?

Last time I checked, Dragon Ball Super was experiencing mediocre ratings despite being one of the most famous Shonen of all time. The One Punch Man anime has some of the best animation I've seen in years for a TV show, and the nips couldn't care less. Moeshit is killing everything.

It seems the Boku no Hero anime is the only real contender to have a successful run, which is great because the manga is actually really good.

Look senpai, if any of the Espada were VL, it would be the ones you mentioned, as they best fit the bill for the vague description that was given for an obscure concept that was mentioned as more of a "legend" than anything. But we'll never be able to prove that those 4 are/were one way or the other, because Kubo will never mention VL again. And VL as a concept wasn't even important to begin with, nor did it have any impact on the story in the end. It's the same case with the "war potentials."

Yeah, okay. Why do you even read Bleach? Why are you even here?

I won't speculate as to what Kubo has in store because he always surprises. It's not always good, but it's never predictable. I certainly don't have to insert my own idea as to what I think would be "the coolest" to enjoy Bleach.

I think he means "Saigo no Getsuga Tenshō".
>>
>>133142526
It's what it says. I assume he means to say that since Ichigo unlocked the full power of Zangetsu his power is now comparable to the level it can reach when Zangetsu fuses with Tensa.

Also Ichigo's reiatsu was never said to increase in Bankai, on the contrary it wraps itself around him and compresses. If Ichigo was truly using arterie then it should be no surprise that he momentarily reached that level of power when all of powers are otherwise unrestrained.

Not even close. Kubo sure does like to waste time on characters people don't give a shit about. I guess that's why this manga has fallen so sharply in relevance and popularity

How many chapters until BLEACH finishes, do you guys think?
>>
>>133143213
>Kubo sure does like to waste time on characters people don't give a shit about.

This is true actually; in one interview he said he tries his best to make less popular characters more likeable, and it shows with characters like a few of the vice captains (Omaeda and Chojirou come to mind specifically).

>I guess that's why this manga has fallen so sharply in relevance and popularity

And in doing so has actually increased drastically in quality, since Kubo has the freedom to end the series on his terms.

The identity crisis is in the past, this was handled in the HM arc, the FB arc and it ended with Ichigo acknowledging Zangetsu as his sword.
Now Ichigo has to face his fate and what he is. Can you imagine that we're 650 chapters in and NO ONE can give a clear answer on what Ichigo's power is, not even Ichibei?
Yhwach changes his mind about his plans with Ichigo every second chapter or so, so it's reasonable to assume that he can't see shit from Ichigo's future and he's just faking it to save face, to not alert him.

If you're gonna try to argue that Bankai aren't any good, Kyoraku is the last example you should use.

Lille was shitting his pants up until just now, and is now pretty desperately using what is presumably some form of Ransoutengai in order to cling to life.

So does this mean Shunsui's been living a fraud pretending both those Zanpakutos were his?
>>
This nigger's bankai STINKS

Guess it is possible to transfer one ownership of zanpaktou to another person. Although that means shunsui doesn't really have a duel weird zanpaktou which is a bit disappointing.

Kubo had already drawn Nanao with a zanpakuto in the colo spread of all the vice captains.

That was years ago though, he changed his mind.
>>
>>133159751
I think Kyoraku lost and is basically done here, and Nanao will be fighting now with Kyoukotsu. I guess a bankai next chapter.
>>
>>133159983
Well, Tousen and Zaraki
I guess that taking them makes you kinda transform them but keep their original essence.

First he took the mother's, then he took the daughter's because the mother didn't want her to fight or something.

>>133159682
It's clearly some sort of owl dragon centaur butterfly.

It's like you've never seen an owl dragon centaur butterfly before.

It would certainly follow the pattern of the captains eating shit and the VC's getting power ups to pick up the slack. Rukia, Renji, Nemu, and now Nanao.

So:
Both swords look similar because of spiritual heritage.
We know that Shinigami can take swords from others, and kind of shape them to their spirit afterward.

One belongs to the mother, the other to the daughter.

Mother dies, Shunsui loves her, takes her sword. Also, somehow Mother makes Shunsui promise to take the sword from the Daughter whenever she becomes a Shinigami to keep her away from fighting, or because she knows that Daughter's sword power could be similar to hers, and wants her to avoid something tragic as Mother's bankai is (and indeed, both spirits are quite similar).

Then, Daughter becomes a Shinigami, Shunsui takes her under his wing and takes the sword away, now he has both swords.

>>133160356
Read the chapter, it says kyoraku is returning the other zanpakuto to Nanao. Nanao will be fighting from here on and using bankai. Kyoraku might even die.
>>
>>133160356
Maybe he had his own sword from spiritual academy times but he just forgo it to use Mother's and then Daughter's too.
>>
>>133160321
Probably. Although since we saw that Nanao was a small child in TBtP which was only a hundred years or so ago, her mother must have died (and thus given Shunsui her zan) not too long before that.

Meanwhile though, Shunsui is supposed to be hundreds if not thousands of years old. He must have had a zanpakuto before he inherited Nanao's and her mother's. What happened to it?

probably this

just stashed his sword away, because he prefer's the Mother's one because of grief/love, the Daughter's one because of promise, and maybe he can keep both of them because of how similar are them but he can't keep his own also because they would be incompatible, or carrying 3 swords is a hassle.

I DO mind that.
>>
>>133160514
So:
Own sword -> stashed away

Carry Nanao's and her mother's together -> both are spiritually compatible to work together

Carry Nanao's -> because of the promise
Carry the mother's -> because of love/grief, same as pink haori

Don't carry his -> because 3 swords is a hassle, or it would be incompatible to work together with the other 2, or because the other 2 together are better than his own individually.

>>133160473
You never know what kubo may comes up with.
>>
>>133160592
Literally different than any of the other VC fights this arc, though. Rukia & Renji wrecked sternritters who tore captains apart because "lol that's not actually your swords real power", and Nemu blew up the SK's arm because "lol I was only using 1% of my power".

Expect the next fight to have Shinji job out (again) so that Aizen can reveal he used illusions to hide Hinamori's real power, which is actually beyond captain tier, or some other such bullshit.
>>
Nice theories but one sword is his zanpakuto for sure and not the mothers.

He doesn't have one stashed away.
>>
>>133160704
But then, what if carrying spiritually incompatible swords wouldn't allow them to fully express themselves?

Like how Quincies can't reach their full power (Volstandig) if they are holding/using someone else's Bankai.

An /a/non actually foresaw the zanpakto reveal. The exact same pages were used by Kubo during the reveal.
>>
If Shunsui is the only shinigami with two swords in unreleased state, then it's possible that tachi was always his, while the wakizashi belonged to the mother. It is said that wakizashi was a standard female weapon in Japanese culture, they even got it as part of their dowry.
Since he now wielded two swords, maybe he ended up imprinting some of his soul onto the other spirit as well, hence why it shares some details in appearance with Ohana. Ohana also acts as sort of a guardian to ninja girl, like Shunsui acts towards Nanao.
>>
>>133160725
Because Shunsui can't unleash Kekotsu's full power since it isn't his zan, but Nanao can. Or because Kubo.
>>
>>133160769
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

I don't see anyone ever bringing that horse shit theory image collage about how Zangetsu didn't have guard because it's not Ichigo's 'real Zanpakuto' after he got his real one in Royal Realm which turned out to NOT have a guard too.
>>
>>133160725
Better compatitablity? Mother's kin is Nanao, the stronger Bankai it gets?

Who knows.
>>
>>133160794
And when the mother died she just passed down her sword for Nanao to own (instead of getting a brand new one from Ooetsu), but made Shunsui promise that he'd never let her use it.
>>
>>133160797
>The mother's sword actually has the ability to create any play imaginable, but Shunsui can only create the same lover's tragedy because of his own grief.
>Nanao's sword can play any child's game and be switched at will, but Shunsui can't actually control which game the sword chooses because it's not his zan.
>>
>>133159682
I really dig the owl face with the sideways eyelids, the snake neck is a little much, and I like the confusing sword knee legs thing going on it's appropriately alien. Him now having a full head of hair and the general whiteness of the face, particularly around the ears, gives off an oddly grecian vibe, and makes it seem like this was some totally unrelated design at first that Kubo only now salvaged by tying into Lille on a whim.
>>
>>133160745
Neither are his, One is Nanao and Lisa's mother, the other is some Zanpaktou he stole from another man.

If anything the Zanpaktou that Nanao had before this is actually Kyouraku's.
>>
>>133134978
What happened to that cutie baka
>>
>>133160874
Wait, stolen, where?

Also, I support the notion that Shinigami doesn't need to get a brand new sword at the academy, maybe they could just use a family inherited one and imprint it a bit with their spirit.

So, one sword is Shunsui's.
The other is Nanao's (which previously belonged to her mother).
>>
>>133160874
This. The reason Shunsui is in love with Sakuranosuke is because it's Nanao's mother's zanpakuto spirit. It's a piece of the woman he loved.

Part of watching weekly/monthly releases is speculating, Kubo pulls shit out of left field and almost nothing is out of the realm of possibility.

Berserk Threads are full of speculation as well.
>>
>>133160945
But then the other sword (the small girl) is Nanao's sword.
>>
>>133160101
But Nemu totally beefed it at the last second. Which actually provides some tension for Nanao. Like if anything Nanao is a less popular character with not as much going on as Nemu does, so her fate could really go either way.
>>
>>133160945
Her name is Ohana, Sakuranosuke is what she calls Shunsui.
>>
So how is it her zan? Because she had the right to inherit it from her mother? So it's still her mother's soul, not her own like a zan typically is. So she's had no contact with the spirit for what, most of her life? What possible good can it even do. And what of her actual zan?
>>
>>133160928
She straight up says she was taken from another man.
>>
>>133160990
>so her fate could really go either way.
Not really. Lille already revealed his trump card. So if Nanao is going to fight then she's going to win, one way or another.
>>
>>133161023
Well, as far as I get it, zan typically are part of your soul, which you imprint in it when you get the sword at the academy.

But we've clearly seen Tousen getting a dead women's sword, and then reimprinted it with his own spirit.

Maybe it is her actual zan, both hers and her mother. Mother dies, inherit it with part of her soul, and then when she owns it she also imprints it with her soul, like a mix of both.
>>
>>133159892

>>133161056
It will be a teamwork effort for both nanao and shunsui.
>>
>>133160987
Right, which is why they're similar. We've already seen that parent & child Shinigami have similar swords (Isshin being able to use getsuga), so it makes sense that Nanao's & her mother's blades are similar. It would actually make less sense if the other blade was Shunsui's.
>>

Ywach is retroactively aging. He's only as old as he ever was.
>>
>>133160101
Mayuri has used Nemu in almost all his battles, they are basically one.
>>
A Shinigami can't just take the zanpakuto of another and use the abilities they had or whatever.

When the shinigami dies the zanpakuto's spirit dies and the sword just becomes a blank, like the ones Oetsu makes.

Then the new owner can imprint on that blank and make it his own.

>>133161139
>It will be a teamwork effort for both nanao and shunsui.

Nanao better pull out some hax healing shit then. Shunsui can barely even speak without dying right now.

>>
>>133161139
Nah, Shunsui is at worst dead and at best disabled for the rest of the arc. The theme of the arc has been the changing of the guard. All the old shinigami like Yamamoto, Unohana, etc have been killed, the RG got BTFO, and the old SK is dead and replaced. Shunsui sticking around to help out would break the pattern. The old is being swept away for the dawn of a new era.
>>
>>133161206
It's the beak.
>>
>>133161113
Yeah but we've been told/shown repeatedly that any amount of power from a zanpakutou comes from practice and communicating with the spirit via meditation, or cheating and using Urahara's doll. Getting her zan back now ought to be no better than waking her sword up for the first time. I know Kubo will probably have some excuse to sidestep all that, but it just seems like this wasn't an especially well thought out twist.
>>
>>133161178
You really think a shinigami as old as Shunsui can die in a way that leaves a corpse? When you get that strong, at the very least your head needs to be obliterated.

You guys suck at comprehension.

Kyouraku's sword is Ohana, the other one is Nanao's. Ohana is his memory of Nanao's mother imprinting on the sword, hence why the two look similar in terms of eye color, hair color, etc.

The reason she comments on the kimono being from another woman is because it's Nanao's mothers. It's why Ohana asks for hostile towards Kyouraku because she can never stand up to someone he still loves after all this time. There is a reason for why both swords do certain things with Kyouraku.

>"Unlike your lieutenant, who's all business, my counterpart approaches battle as a type of game. Catch a dragonfly, and she'll pluck off its wings. Catch a butterfly, and she'll drown it in water. Catch a cicada, and she'll rip off its legs. She can be very innocent and ingenuous, but merciless and cruel at the same time. I like to enjoy the finer things in life, but she's different. In fact, she tends to be rather dark and malicious. After seeing what she's capable of right before your eyes, it would be hard to accept her."

That's a good quote. To Kyouraku, Nanao's mother was actually dark and liked to play games, while his sword can only do nothing but remember a lover's suicide and a swallowing abyss, probably something he didn't end up going through with, but the mother did.

It's pretty simple. They're both acting under his imprinting, one is Kyouraku's, one is Nanao's. Both abilities are Kyouraku's though.

I think it's a good design. It kinda has the hair and face appearance of the stereotypical bishi angel, but is obviously deformed with the sideways eyes and dry out, etc. It also has the crazy monstrous body. It shows that he's not really divine, just a bad imitation. It shows that Yhwach's creations are flawed.

Unohana was the one that fixed most of the ridiculous damage from the Arrancar arc. Presumably Isane would be able to help if she hadn't been off screened by X. That leaves Hanatarou who somehow became 3rd seat in the midst of a war, and while he was up and about last we saw him he's also apparently vanished from the scene.

>>133160023
No, there's more to it. Nanao clearly says that she was going to give Kyouraku her zanpaktou, the small one she keeps hidden in her robes.
Instead Kyouraku wants to give her his zanpaktou which he now claims belonged to her.
>>
>>133161551
I feel like it implies his divinity is genuine. Gods (or whatever you want to call spirit king and Yhwach's species) are freaky and inhuman. For a quincy becoming freaky and inhuman isn't a "flaw", it really does mean they're becoming something closer to a god.

Its not comparable to arrancar or hollow hybrids, where being inhuman generally means they were poorly made or don't have their shit under control.
