Thanksgiving new chapter hype! Will the bird finally be finished off?
>The moment where he becomes so arrogant to think he can be compared to a God
Lille is really based of Islamic Extremists like I originally hypothesized.
So any bets Thor is just some Nordic Extremists that hits a Berserk frenzy for VALHALLA?
>Radical exaggerated Nazis
Pretty much where Nazis came from, f.am.
Aryans, like all other humans, were never peaceful to begin with.
Wasn't James divided into two beings?
His fanbloboy self and his ideal Mr. Superstar self?
I thought Lille was going to be really boring, but then Kubo went into maximum overkubo and shit went nuts.
I fully expect Thor to go balls to the wall. Also i'm sure next time we see Thor he will have dropped everyone except for maybe Urahara. It'll be HYPE, you'll see.
This whole fight has been anything but hype.
It has been the antonym of hype.
Nothing good came out this entire arc outside of Zanpaktou Tales being canon. With that said even thier appearance would be entirely confusing to anyone who hasn't watched that filler arc.
To fully understand this fight you have to have watched a goddamn filler.
>With that said even thier appearance would be entirely confusing to anyone who hasn't watched that filler arc.
Not really though, it would just be seen as the reveal of Shunsui's sword spirits.
The fuck are you even talking about? Only canon thing are the designs. Zanpakutou spirit is a thing since fucking forever. You don't have to watch that trash heap filler to understand this shit at all.
Thor is likely to just be some battle-rager retard who is stupidly strong.
But, this is Kubo. It's entirely possible Thor's ability is the power to summon an army of sexy valkyria waifus who'll attack the shinigami while Thor just sits back eating some delicious shiny bread.
The anime filler has zero to do with the current events, other than being the basis for the humanoid forms of Shunsui's two swords. The filler is still completely uncanonical.
And speak for yourself. I started off this fight bitching about Lille - how he was boring and unworthy as an opponent to showcase the bankai of the new Captain Commander. Then Kubo went full throttle with a design that slowly transformed into a depiction of an oldschool angel, the Eldritch Abomination variety. Even his characterization changed to something of a stuck up deity-like figure. He not only felt justified as an opponent, but he also made me feel a whole lot better about the powered-up Elite Sternritter curbstomping the Zero Division. Bach is the new God, and these guys are suppose to be top soliders. I love how all the most recent Elites are all getting super grotesque and horrifying in their final forms. I can't wait to see what the rest of them do now.
I have been very hyped since the Mayuri fight. And I barely made through that garbage with It-Doesn't-Work-Bach, the "Spirit Bomb" door, and fucking Mimihagi, Jesus Christ.
>Zanpaktou Tales being canon
You need to learn what canon means.
>thier appearance would be entirely confusing to anyone who hasn't watched that filler arc.
>To fully understand this fight you have to have watched a goddamn filler.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Wasn't the prediction being the more the odds are stacked against Valkyrie "The Miracle" the most likely he will defeat his foes. It will be a Miracle that he wins in the end.
Watch as Hanataro comes in and ninjas the kill completely under Thor's radar.
It's a cool idea, but tonally it feels out of place that an autistic lucha wrestler would be on the same team as an angelic owlman, a hand of God, whatever the stigmatic Christ imagery As Nodt was.
There's a fuckton of differences between the sternritters
The ones you mention are the more deity/religious like, but still others are more down to Earth.
I believe that S original form was the little chubby thing, because when S was nuked Yhwach realized James was defeated, and goes along the lines of his power giving strength/courage to those who lacked it.
In the end, S was the idealized image of James itself, which he became, and his supporters were some copies of how he looked like before, since he was now something that him from before and others like him would look up to.
Agh kubo, when will jump finally terminate your contract, washed up faggot
Inb4 more plot holes and bullshit clipped on
He just accidentaly killed Spirit God
Which was replaced immediately by Nazi Jew Jesus son of Spirit God
Also he is now half Quincy half Shinigami half Hollow half Human half Fullburger half Whatever
You can't get off Mr. Kubo will ride
You'll never get over it if you do
Your life will never be complete, if you go through the path of never reaching the resolution of something that was part of your life for so long, you'll forever feel that something is missing.
It wasn't shown
Just implied confirmed
'Sword' being left handed, 'Sword' being with Urahara/Orihime/Chad, 'Sword' mannerisms and speech over the phone with Ichigo, and when they finally came from Hueco Mundo to Soul Society, it was confirmed that 'Sword' was Grimmjow.
Sadly he rushed against The D (which is not a physical type) and got some poison that seems to have incapacitated him for now. He is only good against brawlers.
>why did ichigo's faggot friends get so much screen time? No one gave a shit about dike karate girl, his tsunder sister, or his bitch ass classmates. Is there a point to them?
Inb4 all part of aizens plan
I am really mad over the cancellation(?) of the Bleach: Heat The Soul game series. It didn't matter that it was full japanese, it was very playable on the PSP.
Fuck you, whoever was in charge of them and stopped just at FKT.
1 lost because depression and diluting its soul
2 lost because hax power used against itself, was the fucking king of HM
3 didn't even lose, was tank as fuck and really powerful, still alive.
4 lost against the fucking MC, after a really hard battle (I'd put 4 being the most powerful of the top 4 just because the double resurrection), but I still believe the top 4 are strong enough to be all VLs.
Yeah, sorta kinda. I'm talking more realistic /fa/ though.
Which year was that spread from?
>tfw Ichigo was hinted to be quincy back then
Also it was always in the color schemes. He always had something blue and red (for shinigami) on his clothes
Dunno, I'm just getting these off google.
My life is really sad if nearly 19 posts out of 82 are mine. No samefagging though, but it feels like wasting time here refreshing for anyone to say anything of the chapter to come out, when I could just sleep and read it in the afternoon.
I guess I just want to talk to someone about it when it comes out.
I'm sad cause I got used to the chapter being out when I wake up, but now the schedule is all wrecked.
So, where do you think Ise curse originated from? Do you think it's a way for Royal Guard to keep their holy amazon warriors under control? Is Nanao's mom rebelling against their control what inspired them to have her executed, when worse offenders around that time got either prison or exile?
but I really want to talk with others once it comes out
just reading afterwards takes some of the fun from it... and if I try coming here by then people will have already discussed shit enough.
shunsui was in love with his brother's wife
Or maybe he is just remembering good old times, when all was well, they were both alive and he was on good terms with his brother and had a sweet looking sister-in-law to wake him up gently.
>look at this giant tube i made in the sky with my quincy powers that make no sense
If old man genocide was still around he wouldn't stand for this shit, he'd just burn that flying owl nigger.
turkey for thanksgiving
Isn't vice-captain Aizen like, totally dreamy?
dam son skelly lady is fiiiiiiiiiiine
Which version is better? Glasses Aizen or Hueco Mundo Aizen?
I want to know too, considering Mayuri thought Urahara was/is creepy
LabMember011 should really upload the poems from volumes 62 to 69~70...
the translations are not consistent. there are at least 3 different versions of each poem
pic related: kyoraku is a creeper
what is with captains and their liuetenants
why are the relationships always complicated?
>and kubo showing that aizen is a sexy beast.
Silly anon. Every thread is Aizen thread
So it seems.
Everyone is under the impression that Aizen is sexy.
The only way to dispel the illusion is to touch his dick.
Or thats what he wants you to believe.
>The only way to dispel the illusion is to touch his dick.
But Ichigo already did that
Ah yeah, the unconfirmed thing was who actually did that, spending months trying to figure out who sword was, so perhaps that anon missed the sword reveal, or didn't make the connection.
I wonder, would Kubo be willing (or legally able) to make hentai of Bleach after he finishes? Even under a pen name? Or is it owned not completely by him (some legalese with distributors) that won't allow him to work on Bleach outside of them.
unless they want some part of the hentai money pie, he'd be rich with all his wonderful female drawings
I will forever wonder how are MP's scanlators able to fuck the pages up so bad
Bleach 653 Chapter Spoilers. Shunsui’s Brother is the one that owns the hair pins. (comment: he actually owns one though? why?)
七緒の母「…もう1本は貴男が持っていて下さい 虚討伐で貴男が傍に居ない時も同じ物を持って いることが私 の励みになります」
Nanao’s Mother: Please take the other one.
I don't actually really understand what Nanao's mother is saying here entirely. Something about wanting Kyoraku's brother to have the other hairpin when she is no longer around or something and she does this as an incentive. I don't actually know what 虚討伐 is. lol
Shunsui’s brother blushes.
Kyoraku makes a funny face.
Kyoraku's brother headbutts him: What the hell is that face for?
Brother: You should go home and study or something, you moron!
Kyoraku: And I thought you had such an easygoing personality...
兄「…そんなつもりは無いな もし俺が丸くなったように見えているとしたら あれの優しさがそう見せてくれ ているんだろう」
Brother: I again barely understand this line. Kyoraku's brother says that Shunsui has no plans or intentions or something... And when he presents himself acting all calm he wants to prove that he is kind or a caring person or something, perhaps to Nanao's mother?
Nanao attempting to fend off Lille's attack: I understand.... I am gripping my sword, ready to fight... But I am so frightened.
She sighs, Nanao’s hands begin to shake.
Then her left foot starts bleeding (I think it is her foot).
七緒「（斬られてる…今の弾けた光で斬れたのかも知れない… 痛い…斬られるってこんなに痛か ったんだ 痛い 怖い 足が動かない）」
Nanao: He cut me... I wasn't aware he cut me because of that burst of light. It hurts... It hurts... I'm so scared... I can't move my feet.
Kyoraku then appears and supports Nanao from behind.
リジェ「…ン 出て来たか 全く….部下の後ろに隠れて出るなんて…悪い隊長だ ”神の喇叭( トロンペーテ )” を聴いて◯ね」
Lille: Hmmm? So You’ve come back? Hiding behind your subordinates… You are such a terrible Captain. Now, open your ears to the Trumpet of God.
Kyoraku: Do it, Nanao chan.
Kyoraku: It will be okay. I’ll be right behind you.
七緒「（ああ、隊長の優しさが流れ込んでくるようだ 隊長を支えるつもりで戻ってきたのに、結 局支えられて るのは私だ
Nanao: Again, another line I struggle to translate properly. Nanao comments how Shunsui is so caring and despite him coming back to help her, she is the one who has need his support or help all along.
Nanao regains the strength in her eyes.
Lille blows the trumpet of god. It blows the entire area away.
Lille’s body has been cut: huh?
Nanao and Kyoraku are standing on the only remaining foothold (the only place that hasn’t been blown away)?
リジェ「…ああ、そうか 神の力を弾くと言っていたんだったな ふふ…神の力を弾くなどと全く …罪深いな」
Lille: Aa. Really? As I was saying, this is playing the Power of God. Huff, Huff... Lille then says something about playing the power of God and how Nanao and Shunsui are sinful.
Lille is disordered and falls.
someone please post the pic of him in some sort of bondage clothing
I miss his twitter with the random comments
Nevermind, found it on leddit.
Incredible that after all this time I find it again (having made it), shit goes far on the internet.
How long does it take to Viz to translate a chapter?
We are one week ahead of the Japanese release (We get the leaks just at print, before distribution). Is Viz on par of the Japanese release, or a week later or what?
Post best girl while we wait
Walk into you're room and see this, What do?
Honestly Bleach is a rare show where it has too many canditate for best girl
Got a present for you then
backgrounds caused Kubo to quit twitter ey?
>tfw already have this
I wish she was more popular
She's Dead anon.
But... She was dead to begin with.. Shit
I think Kubo just didn't know what to do with her so he sacrificed her for Kenny to become more op and then slide back to EXACTLY where he was before.
Fuck i dont get why kenny even needed a powerbost to begin with. Dude went 2H for one fucking swing and killed an Espada
im runnig out of sfw images
>offer her a drink and some flowers to iron out the misunderstanding
>walk her to the 4th division headquarters
>have a cofe with her and chat for half an hour
>wish her good night and return home
>fuck the rest of them till dawn
nah if he didn't know what to do with her, he probably would've just kept her as team healer
it's not like anyone's going to mind if it's nsfw
There wont be anyone to heal though. This is the last fight. and if he kept her arround he'd have to show her Bankai or have her on the front lines for a change. Would have been a good way to split up the revives actually. Half Mayuri zombies half Unohana revives with her Bankai. would have been a good matchup for GiGi
Rogue modz might
You don't know anything about ISIS. You're demonizing them as more evil than they really are. Which is quite evil, sure, but being ignorant about your enemy, their motives, and their character is just foolish.
Kind of bland, in the end.
Shunsui's Bankai was cool but in terms of character Kubo really dropped the ball with Lille. He was boring since he kept spouting the same stuff.
Kubo shines with arrogant characters when he makes them snarky, like Byakuya. Byakuya is a dick, but his one-liners are great.
But his humourless knight templars fall short more often than not.
Looking back, though the Mayuri spam annoyed me, Pernida was way more fun as a villain. His powers were really creative and he developed a sassy attitude as he evolved.
Can someone tell me what ever happened to the young soul reaper and his friend with the lily pad hat, as well as that guy that looked like Aizen but with white hair!?
Seriously, the beginning of this arc was giving us so many hints that Ichigo was going to "pass the baton" and teach that new young soul reaper everything he knew.
Did you read the same chapters I did? It's not like he one offed the guy like Bach did the old man. Mayuri manipulated Kenpachi to understand what he was dealing with, then he used every thing he had at his disposal of which Pernida over came. And Mayuri for the first time was at was all but screwed and probably settled for losing and being turned into a puddle of goo
Then Nemu gave him a way out
Shino and Yuki, the kids, just disappeared. Dunno what Kubo planned for those two but he sure quickly scrapped it, or maybe their work was really over with that.
Kajomaru (Aizen wannabe) seemingly got killed by Haschwalth.
Kubo really failed to deliver a good impression about the destruction of SS. First it was rampaged by the Soldat, and then it was completely annihilated by Yhwach. Neither felt impactful, despite the death toll rising to over ten thousand. Also, they have no means to continue as they have even if they do defeat Yhwach. Only a handful of VCs and Captains left, no infrastructure, no means to rebuild. They'd have to conscript some Rukongai citizens, and even then it'd take years of rebuilding. Meanwhile, hollows can rampage almost freely in the human world - what's left of them, that is. Killing hollows doesn't have the same impact though, since any regretful soul will turn into one.
>Only a handful of VCs and Captains left
Only Yamamoto, Sasakibe and Unohana have died. Everybody else is alive, Nemu obviously will be revived from her conveniently remained brain.
>36 captain level and above sternritter reported
>Only 3 captains dead
> One was just suicide
Kubo just can't get rid of the captains. They should have become irrelevant ever since the espada fodderized Ichigo who had fought on par with Byakuya.
Maybe Kyoraku, Unohanna, Yammamoto and Ukitake, but the rest should have devolved into fodder so we could move on to focus on stronger new characters.
As it stands he made the Sqad 0 job off panel just to focus more on those same fucking captains we've seen since the beginning with new bullshit massive power ups in 2 years after 500 years of living.
>when have grunts ever been relevant
Never. But the point the other guy is trying to make is that the Shinigami won't be able to properly monitor the living world without the numbers.
The story is going towards the direction that the system will not look the same as before, in fact we might even see races cooperate in the end. That could be the thing that helps keeping hollows at bay while shinigami recover.
Everything is gone, mate. C46, Nobles, messengers, hell butterflies, R&D, surveillance, all the support staff, guards, kido corps, punishment force, maggots nest, 4th division janitors. The big senkaimon is gone too, although it could be redone with kido or something. Who knows, maybe Muken is gone too, and the prisoners are either free or dead. No comms either, nobody to peek into the human world. Akon and his staff are probably dead too. If a place in the human world was devastated by hollows, they would have no clue until one of the few VCs stumbles on location - and Japan is a big place for a handful VCs.
Game over man, it's game over.
Holy fuck I completely forgot about those little tykes.
>Akon and his staff are probably dead too
They are not, they were working on Kira cyborg in the novel. And we don't know how damaged everything else is.
>They are not, they were working on Kira cyborg in the novel.
That was before Yhwach annihilated all of SS to recreate RR in his own vision. I highly doubt that they're like Kenpachi who can handle getting crushed between huge chunks of rock
Do you? C46 gave that permission before Yhwach brought SS up in rubble. I highly doubt that any building (Muken possible exempt) could withstand getting pulled up by Yhwach. And there's no reason to believe that they would survive that. Only if they managed to jump out from whatever cracks that MAY have appeared, before the rubble reassembled to form the new RR.
Aizen is probably somewhere in there too, but he's the only one who would be able to survive it.
Have you ever been inside a building that gets lifted up and reassembled into a new one without any care in the world to what happens to the occupants?
It's a fucking meat grinder.
You're assuming that nobody was inside. Besides, the people could've died in the meat grinder when the buildings changed shape the first time. It's also against human behavior of seeking shelter to assume that everybody went outside, while a war was going on. The pavement and the ground below it was taken as well anyway - unless Yhwach rebuilt his city without any earth works, meaning that they'll topple over in a few years.
Trust me, I'm an earth worker
aren't you overthinking things a little bit, Mr. earth worker? this type of series usually ends on a positive note, and if Kubo so far didn't show us dead bodies or had someone say these people are dead, then it is safe to assume the worst that happened to them is that they are injured
>unless Yhwach rebuilt his city without any earth works
Guess what it's made out of reishi. He makes stairs out of thin air, don't know why you try to apply our physical laws here. It's reishi.
>I'm not sure that every squad have been wiped out.
True, but like it's been said, with most of the grunts killed, they won't be getting back to business after the war is won unless they get outside help.
Indeed. It's pretty obvious that the world will stay changed after it's all said and done.
If it's made out of just reishi, why is there a huge amount of land beneath the actual buildings
Earth works or not, Yhwach did take a shitload of land with him too. Anybody in SS/Quincy city at the time would likely be carried up, suffocated or crushed inside it, unless they were at the very edge of the town.
I can see right through your pathetic lies!
Nah, you guys are wrong. Don't you know that jet fuel can't melt steel beams!
whatever you're on, you better share...
Nah, this current arc is just NGE-tier Christian imagery based on the usual Japanese ignorance of the subject (see: any anime or manga which portrays Western religious organisations, esp. the Catholic Church).
Neither Muslims or Christians would ever call themselves gods. About as far as either will go is to call themselves God's representative on Earth, but that would be a title reserved for Popes or Caliphs.
I'm in love.
You can't be serious.
God did appear in human form in the old testament, didn't he? Once lost to Jacob in a wrestling match, too IIRC.
The truth is that the entire Aizen arc was just an illusion he cast on everybody in order to make them more powerful for the soulking arc.
He lied about people needing to see his release to put them under his spell.
He's not actually in the chair, he just wants everybody to think that he is.
>Neither Muslims or Christians would ever call themselves gods.
It's hubris m8
>phone tie me
The speaker was put into a state of bondage by a phone,
>you are to
and the other person shares their predicament.
Obviously it's a commentary on how we are slaves to modern communications technology and yet it brings us closer to each other. 2deep4u, Kuboooo, etc.
sorry. had to try this 'trolling' thing out at least once
>Kenpachi killed four
>Yachiru killed one
Between the two, they've killed about a fifth of the Sternritters.
who did yachiru kill?
momo is a babe.
Anyone else wish the SR didnt spend half the war killing eachother?
I just wish Kubo spent more time with the Sternritter in general during the second invasion. Only a few fights were engaging while the rest of it was really running of fumes.
And even the majority of the fights that had more though put into them kinda blew their load at the end when the Royal Guard trainees came around and started owning shit left and right. Some more even fights would go a long way.
Would you a sexually questionable
You know considering that by laws of hype and Kubo Haschwald is stronger than any of the Elites, I wonder why he didn't just kill Shunsui. I highly doubt he couldn't have just balanced out the barrier.
I'm tired of waiting. Getting to banter over shitty manga was my only joy during Thursdays. Now I had to endure shitty work and fat wife and there's STILL no new chapter.
Fuck this life, I'm done.
But the bible says "god", it must be tru
Will I meet Rukia again in my dreams tonight?
From the expressions, only Ichigo/Orihime wouldn't fit. Ichigo is never that stern towards Orihime.
Because she is a baby.
Yhwach will be the new Soul King and in fact I think he will become the king who is, the king he shall be and the king that was---the monk instead of tearing down his name shall praise him and add titles to his name. One of which is the all seeing all knowing, soul king. Much like the Archmage, he'll be both the ridden and the rider.
firstly, that's not jobbing or has nothing to do with jobbing a fight
secondly, I don't think it was. it raised the stakes of his shikai being a child's play (as in getting real dark and serious and referencing stuff like fucking human suicide) and, as I fucking said, he did all the four steps require to normally rekk any opponent. His only misfortune was intense Kuboing.
while i dont agree hes a jobber, i do think his bankai was lacking the 'oh shit he released his bankai, snippa nigga is rekt now' element
moreover, were talking about the Captain Commander's bankai it should been more flashy and shit
Except Byakuya would flat out die to Kyoraku's bankai (because he's not an immortal god like Lille or Aizen), while Kyoraku could evade or block Byakuya's bankai with his shikai skills alone.
It's all situational, really.
>Even Byakuya has a stronger bankai.
To be fair Shinji has "died" a bunch, to the point where It's something I'd consider a running gag especially considering how he just shows up again alive like nothing really happened. Easily my favorite character currently.
his bankai was never broken, only stolen. there's no reason to assume just because he went to Squad Zero spa, he received the same "your bankai was a kek m8" treatment Renji did
Either go with the rest of the SS, or get them all into the Sun gate so they reach the Palace faster.
Literally anything but zerg rushing a God who just ate the previous God and remade reality
Last week it was faster because we had an 'early release'. So, if it wasn't for the arrests and mangapanda loosing their raws provider we would have gotten chapter on wednesday last week. And this week we'll probably get it on friday, there are still no raws.
How is this series still running? It's just a bunch of shitty fights that consist of characters constantly asspull one-upping the other guy in ways that make no sense. The story has been reduced to a justification for a ton of combat and there are too many characters running around to give a shit about any of them.
It was only good in the beginning when it was about Ichigo running around his town as a faux shinigami.
Can Ichigo do it though? I am not even talking about powerlevels, last time he had an opportunity to fight Bach he grabbed his hand and tried to reason him instead of straight out slashing him, and this happened after he forced Ichigo to kill the SK. I suppose Ichigo still sees Zangetsu in him.
He retired Zangetsu for some reason.
The fact that he doesn't suck shinigami cock makes him great in my book. He helps Ichigo and stuff when needed but he doesn't get buttfucked by soul society and doesn't care about them.
Don't misinterpret him, it's not that.
I remember him from previous threads, he said every Elite was inspired by a different kind of religious fanatic, it made sorta sense.
Lille is rifle wielding fanatic in base form, and similar to a mentioned Islamic Angel in Owl form.
Thor would be Norse Beserker, Pernida either Hamsa or Satanic (literally Left Hand Path), Askin some kind of suicide cult
>he doesn't suck shinigami cock
Wait till he betrays Bach, Haschwalth has already called him out on it. Also Ishida somehow forgave Mayuri for torturing his grandfather alive and other 3000 quincies. He doesn't give a fuck for quincies.
Hitsugaya tied against Gin
Lost again Aizen
Won against Arrancar 11
Won against Luppi(negacion saved luppi)
Won/tied against Harribel
Lost agains Aizen
Won against Yukio
Then he got his Bankai stolen.
And now he's still alive.
Dunno why people call him a jobber when he only lost to Aizen(like everyone else) and then he lost against Bazz B because his Bankai got stolen, you're fucking stupid.
What does betraying Yhwach has to do? If he betrays Yhwach is because fucker killed his mother(but I doubt Kubo being Kubo will use that since it's obvious).
He only sides with the good guys, but he doesn't care about soul society's rules or anything. Hell Ichigo in the fullbring arc says Ishida has been killing hollows a lot and hopes it doesn't get him in trouble with SS.
True he forgave Mayuri but Kubo retconned Mayuri quite a bunch and decided to make as if that stuff didn't happen, just look at the recent fight with Pernida.
>Too bad the chapter is shit
It will be. With the exception of Shunsui's bankai reveal, every chapter from this fight has been shit. Especially everything after Lille's chicken form.
>because fucker killed his mother
Mayuri killed his grandfather and tortured him, and Ishida helps shinigami and forgives him, but wants revenge for his mother? Isn't it illogical? He should forgive Bach too in that case, especially considering that Bach didn't torture her and just took his own power.
Like I said, Kubo retconned Mayuri and never talked about it again, ever. Look at the pernida fight and how he's with Nemu compared to how he was the first time he appeared.
Ishida never said I forgive you though, he just didn't kill the guy when he was nursing him back to life.
And stop making me repeat things, I already told you Kubo being Kubo won't make it something as dumb as i'll betray you for my mother.
