new bleach thread
Chapter due in -16 hours
Old thread: >>133991001
Is this design his bankai? Because the grip looks nothing like that while in shikai.
Right now I'm more curious about what shit fan art I'm going to have to click through.
trumpetin this chapter is interesting, could this bit be based on the book of revelations?
Now that I look at it the grip reminds me Haschwalth's sword.
I think it's because it would look cool. Ichigo's powers have nothing to do with fire. As a matter of fact even Engetsu might have been misinterpreted by the fans as a fire-based zanpakuto.
I guess the people who translate bleach decided to take the day off. prob cause they make no money doing it. makes sense; i'd do the same thing but seriously FUCK THIS WHERE'S THE CHAPTER
The annoying thing is that niggerstream released chapters of 2 other manga hours ago. The first one was DBZ, and then they released some other manga which I've never even heard of which is only on its 9th chapter.
That paranormal magic fireman manga by the soul eater dude is 10/10.
Mangastream have really fucking dropped the ball. In their bid to pick up all the semi-popular series that are being dropped left and right due to the raw provider busts they've forgotten to prioritize their two most popular series, Bleach and One Piece.
The flames are blue, so it's a consequence of his quincy power. Engetsu has minimal impact on the ability set of zangetsu.
Most likely they'll hold on until its officially released in Japan (Monday) to avoid further issues with arrests (its easier to pin out a leaker in the production process before it hits shelves).
We usually got the leaks straight from the printing or packaging or shipping (people involved in those processes), thats why we got them on Wednesday or Thursday, we were actually ahead of Japan themselves.
>still no chapter
I don't see him coming back after being scattered by the holy sword.
I don't know if this has been pointed out yet, but more nazi imagery in Bleach.
How do you know? It's fucking mayuri. He could have removed szayel's poison and turned him in one of his arrancar. Or maybe he stole his soul or some shit and it leaked during the fight.
There's some Nazi imagery in the SR (such as uniforms and the army), but in this case I think its mostly germanic imagery (from around the time Yhwach was born), Nazis borrowed from that stuff because muh mysticism
>Ichigo's power is the power to grant others power
>his symbol is an X
It has to be on purpose. Just how much planning has gone into this arc? Kubo doesn't joke around when he says that he's taking time off to do research.
Do you think this super convenient god slaying paddle will ever be used again? Or will it be forgotten about.
It only works as pure reflector. It has no other use.
It won because the Trumpet was such a large scale attack. More likely YHVH won't be using anything of the sort because
He has to be, or else the hollow powers would killed him long ago. But I doubt he's the power distro quincy, those are only born once every 200 years which means that Ginjo must be a lot older than he appears to be.
How does Lille fire his trumpet power?
Blowing into his fingers like a kid? hahaha
>theatre suicide scene 7
>trumpet attack from an angel
the madman did it again
Inferred, but exaggerated to bring home the point.
Also extended lifespan and youth might be a consequence of having a high reiatsu. Urahara walks around in a gigai, yet he hasn't aged in the lst 110 years, unlike Isshin who just recently regained his powers.
I think next chapter will switch immediately to Miracle
We have got 7 'The Theatre Suicide' chapters (just like 7 'Baby Hold Your Hand') and some extra 2~3 chapters before the long numbered ones which make each fitting for a volume, and I think that with this one the volume is complete.
i thought shunsui and ukitake were supposed to be the first graduates of yama's shinigami academy and first captains of the gotei 13
so how come shunsui's older brother is already a regular shinigami and there's no mention at all of the old "gang of thugs" days
That is almost completely wrong. Shunsui and Ukitake were the first Captains of the Gotei 13 that graduated through his academy. In other words, the previous Captains and Shinigami didn't go through his academy, since it didn't exist yet.
What makes you imply that its a regular shinigami? They already had black clothes when Yama was young.
And there's the implication of the tenderness of the wife making him better 'I've grown calm and content' 'mellowed into the old age' 'her kindness is finally beginning to show through me' that implies a lot that his personality used to be more aggressive.
Wait, is he dead? Given what he said he seems to claim nothing can reflect his attack but then he seemingly dissolves. Dissolves because he is dead or dissolves because he is launching a new attack?
Also there was the Genji School and they had already been using the black robes attire.
Because fuck you, shut up and eat Kubo's shit. You could spend hours analyzing timeline in Bleach and come up with 100 solutions but it still won't make sense. It's just like trying to figure out Harry Potter's currency, you just can't because author didn't bother to plan this shit earlier and it ended up being disorganized mess that contradicts itself.
They were the first captains that graduated from the academy. Shinigami existed before old man genocide created the academy, he and unohana were evidence of that. It's like the shinigami were a militia and establishing the academy was a means of making it professional
>enemy is defeated by a new ability that just happens to counter him entirely
Can someone explain just exactly what Nanao's sword does? So seemingly it works on 'gods'? Just what exactly defines a god? And somehow this super op swords Shikai manages to completely destroy Lille? Seems like such as asspull.
It reflects god's power, so Lille basically killed himself with his own attack.
God in shinto is any spirit being worshiped, or I guess in Lille's case one that feels that way.
>No mention of the "gang of thugs days"
Do they always have to mention it? And as >>134032297 said, he himself says that 'I've grown calm and content' 'mellowed into the old age' 'her kindness is finally beginning to show through me' that implies a lot that his personality used to be more aggressive.
>Brother is already a regular shinigami
There you go again making baseless assumptions. Is it because he was wearing black robes? As >>134032366 shows, Yama was wearing them even 2000 years ago. And in the 'murderous thugs' times, even Unohana had underlings with black robes
It's pretty simple, i don't know why you people have trouble understanding this.
Shinigami have existed for a long time.
At one point there was the "Gotei" which was a gang of murderous scumbags led by Yama, these are the guys that defeated Yhwach.
The Gotei had captains and normal Shinigami in it.
At one point after that Yama founded the Shinigami academy to train future Shinigami.
Shunsui and Ukitake were the first Captains that graduated from the academy.
The previous captains, in other words, the member of the original gotei, did not graduate from the academy, because it did not exist.
The thing is that >>134032216
is assuming using who knows what evidence that brother is 'a regular shinigami' and also that not mentioning the 'gang of thugs days' immediately implies they never happened.
>and i don't know there is a sword with special abilities other than a zanpakuto
Wait a second...god has a trumpet? Does he play?
A shikai is the manifestation of someone's powers on a zanpakuto, without a user the zanpakuto returns to the asauchi state.
That can't be a shikai, unless Kubo eventually pull some bullshit to justify it.
I would love to hear them pla-
>Seven trumpets are sounded, one at a time, to cue apocalyptic events that were seen in the vision of the Revelation of Christ Jesus, by John of Patmos
Given that its a zanpakuto if its not bankai then the only other logical conclusion would be shikai.
We read that the wooden spanky paddle thingy redirects the power of a god to eight or five or six or four or how much ever points. Problem was chicken little is composed of Reishi so by dispelling that Reishi, chicken little simply gobbles it back up and viola, he's whole again.
The old incestuous Captain Commander who you know is gonna put the one two on Nanao's pooper and yuck guts at the first opportunity, stepped in and aided her, probably by rubbing her butt with his rod of inspiration, thereby aiding the younger lass to instead of directing the god power to the many points that I referred to previously, sent all that juice right back at the bird man.
seeing as how nothing can escape the divine trumpet blast of god, he, being more than something ultimately perished much like the Grim Reaper hollow dude did, and was also subject to the actuality of his very own power.
So all in all the story was more about Creepy uncle who is gonna stick it to the Niece, that is if he hadn't done so already, and his connections to her family and the probable romantic interludes, if there wasn't one initiated already, and other sexual hijinks the two of them will get up to now that chicken little got himself tuned into nuggets.
Kyoukotsu was hiding the sword.
It's nothing to worry about anons, when the trumpet plays the dead in Christ will rise, however, the wicked (see: those of us who are unrepentent freaks), will most likely be long dead---gobbled up by birds.
and rightly so for if you're not for God, then you're for the devil and as you well know, it's better to fight for the light than to waddle in the dark, for the dark is full of terrors and eventualities you want nothing to do with, namely, oblivion and the abyss and eventually, forever destruction in fiery gehenna (see:Oblivion and complete obliteration of all presence, forever!)
We don't want that though we wanna live, we want to stand on the side of righteousness and beg and scream and plead for loving kindness strong enough so that we could break free of our own stupidity and make it in the door of light, just in time.
I get you anon, it's just that long ago I abandoned any expectations I had for Bleach. I transcended beyond dissapointment, anger and disgust, just absorbing shit Kubo gives me every week, free of any negative feelings.
Kubo's telling the story of the Characters and by doing so he tends to add non consequential B.S. as a way to justify why the characters are the way they are.
That whole thing with bazz-b and pretty boy floyd was boring as crap though. would have preferred zombie girl and her love of molesting her zombies. or how Mayuri molest Nemu to get her regeneration going...would have loved to see how that process works.
So the Agnus is Yhwach?
And the four Horsemen/angels are the Elites?
The dead will rize after the Last Seventh Trumpet? Zanka no Tachi?
You can't say he tells the story of characters if he's not even consistent with it. Kurotsuchi being sadistic freak got swept under the rug and replaced with muh dedicated scientist. Kubo's main purpose is to make characters act cool and look cool, doesn't matter if that makes sense or not. If you think about it, Bleach is the most shounen out of all current shounen shit.
It just feels wrong though, like it's filled with grammatical errors and the like. Can't remember half of the English Lessons I took in High school all those decades ago (see: 2 and change), but for the life of me that post, though intentionally off centre, just feels off grammatically.
It's like that time some years ago when I, the proper porn addict, had gotten into by this point gay porn because the regular porn bored the shit out of me. can't say exactly how i allowed myself to fall into said abysmal trap but one day i was in its thrall and for the briefest of moments (see: 1 year), I feared I was turning into a Falcon studio fluffer nutter.
So to test out and to see if I truly was on my way to the dark side of filth and abominations, I tried to bust a nut into my mouth....So there I was fapping away like a possessed sickened demon and then it happened, my seed was away and falling towards my face and in that very moment, I felt a clarity that can only be described as what people who has done dumb shit and is a moment away from oblivion (see: thrill seekers and dare devils and their moments of absolute perfect clarity before they died---and almost always in horrible ways on account that they were out of their bloody minds) feels. my stomach lurched and my mouth suddenly, as if it were possessed, closed tightly and just in the nick of time too. i was so sickened, i got up and vomited. i felt ashamed and sad for a very long time and then I realized. faggotry is not for me, and in fact, i only pitied those who were themselves trapped in that debased life style. but that entire affair though fascinating, was kinda off centre, as was my post just now.
of course i fap to fag, trap, straight, animal and all of the above, and when i'm done comming, i feel regret, and sadness and depression that last for a few hours. i'm depressed longer when i fap to gay, or loli or animal or real life rape though, so--- off centre, yeah?
>implying Ichigo will turn coat and join the quincy
The only way I'd see something like this happening is if someone had some bullshit mind control powers.
No, not joining the quincy
Just being an unwitting trigger of the apocalypse (as one of the 7 trumpets)
In fact he already advanced the Quincy goals a lot by killing the Soul King, or the way I see it, breaking the crystal so Yhwhach could eat it.
I think they should be able to break the rules and reconstitute the other, can't they? their Reishi gets recycled i know, but i think there should be a way to bring that consolidated parts there of which composes of whomever back from the void and use the very same reishi they were composed of as their receptacle.
i don't think it's impossible as it is forbidden to even try.
Is ripping off Old Testament considered decication now? Not to mention he only referenced the most popular parts, 10 minutes on wikipedia and you have all the knowledge to create biblical villains Bleach style.
Bleach is way better drunk&/stoned
For some reason it flows really smooth and the art tasty minimalist dunno like a real punch and purpose to each frame
When you sober up and reread you get slightly annoyed by the pacing and lack of detail here and there its a stark contrast kind of feel
The fifth trumpet sound is the "first Woe" of three. Before this trumpet sounds, an angel (translated eagle in some versions) appears, flying in mid-heaven, and warns, "Woe, woe, woe, to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!"
The fifth trumpet prompts a personified star to fall from heaven. The star is given the key to the bottomless pit. After opening it, the smoke that rises out, darkens the air and blocks the sunlight. Then from out of the smoke, the Locusts were unleashed. They were scorpion tailed warhorses, having a man's face with lion's teeth. Their hair was long like that of a woman's and flew with locust-like wings. They were crowned with golden crowns and protected with iron-like breastplates. They were commanded by their king, Abaddon, to torment any man who does not have the seal of God on their forehead, by using their scorpion-like tails. It was also made clear to them that they must not kill anyone during their five-month mission of torment.
Religion of Peace
>Hitler called Himmler's mystical and pseudoreligious interests "nonsense". Himmler was not a member of Hitler's inner circle; the two men were not very close, and rarely saw each other socially. Himmler socialised almost exclusively with other members of the SS.
It's debatable whether or not you could really call that Nazi imagery when Hitler rejected it as nonsense.
Yeah. This was such an anti-climactic end to the fight.
>Oh, you reflected my attack. Guess I'll just crumble away now or something...
This was probably the worst fight in the series to date.
>He could have removed szayel's poison and turned him in one of his arrancar
Igoring that it was really bloody obviously an imagination:
Mayuri despised Szayel utterly. No way he would have brought him back.
I think it was more than a hallucination too. I reckon he's taking in brains or something and sticking them onto his own to expand his intellect. So Szayel is like a slave processor
I think more will be revealed with Nemu's brain later.
so I was thinking about Aizen's bankai and this image came to mind. He said he would eat Ichigo, right? Can we assume that his bankai consists of absorbing enemies?
It would explain his monstrous aura, as commented by many shinigami and hollows. If he "ate" many strong enemies until then he would have their combined strength.
Yumichika has a similar shikai.
is it bad that i kind of like the bottom version?
Not defending kubo's laziness but in that panel specifically the empty background gives the feeling that nothing else matters to them at that moment except their fight
I'm honestly expecting either mind control, future sight, or a reset button for his Bankai.
But nothing happened this chapter.
Didn't the site go down? Haven't been on it in a year or so though.
Did someone say reset button?
This was the worst fight in a long time but I'm glad it's finally fucking over and we'll move along. God, Kubo really fucked up Shunsui by giving him such a boring ridiculous fight like this.
prediction: Thor is jesus and is stronger the more ppl fight against him the stronger he is. he's the bull if we're going with the apocalypse theme
askin will probably turn into some fucking abomination. i bet he has a final form. no clue what.
I wonder how many more characters Kubo will pick off in the next fight. I hope Hitsugaya gets his shit pushed in by Uryuu sometime soon.
Is it over? So boring after Shunsui finished his bankai.
Because id take the word of Kubo aka the guy who WRITES BLEACH over an anonymous faggot like you m8
Ａ．春水の魅力は藍染を倒すことではなく、読者の皆に常に「卍解したら藍染より強いかも」と思 わせてくれる ところです
Q. Why Kyouraku didn't go Bankai? If he get serious he might defeat Aizen!
A. Shunsui's appeal is not to defeat Aizen. But I let the readers think that 「If he goes Bankai he might be stronger than Aizen」
All that says is that Kubo gave an impressions about his bankai on purpose it doesn't say anything about his actual strength. If anything it just confirms that he couldn't have beaten Aizen. If him not using bankai gave the impression he might be stronger it's only because him using the bankai would've dispelled the impression.
So whose fight are we gonna see next, Thor's or Askin's?
Shunsui just happens to fight the guy whose initial power was putting holes in anything ignoring the usual defenses, a reasonable match up for his own conceptual type power. He just then goes on to become a batshit crazy zealot with a god complex. Turns out he's basically god level because as it turns out Shunsui is carrying the anti god sword for his niece. A rather fast flashback explains aspects of their character and are revealed only now, just when we need it for a fight and not earlier when it could have been a nice world building chapter without it being so fucking rushed.
Kubo has great thematic style (naming, designs, all the shit he draws from), great powers, great visuals, given time the level of research and foreshadowing is great, but his execution of thing is often terrible and convenient for the current situation, rather than killing the character or having a match up that's not a perfect mirror image or perfect counter.
So, this final arc is drawing more on Christian elements than any before. Is there going to be a reason for it? Is it really going to be some battle of gods/religions dictating the current soul/death/life cycle? It's currently more Buddhist right? So this will explain why we've never seen hell itself, why it never gets worked in, why it's styled after medieval Jap architecture and feudal society, there is no other soul cycle because this one is dominate/won the war how ever long ago. There is no tie to the dominate religion practices by the living, just some weird ghost god battles that somehow dictate how the universe works behind the scenes. Because if SS really wanted to they could have killed all the living and no one could have stopped them.
Karin seems to lean towards shinigami side, Yuzu looks more like her Quincy mom and can sew like Ishida, so she might be more of a Quincy. I guess Yhwach might try something with Yuzu...
Is nobody confused about whether Lille died or is preparing a final attack?
Hell never got worked in because it was just so far removed that Kubo couldn't think of a way to fit an arc there into the events of the main plot. He did have a bunch of ideas for it and tried to get them in the hell movie.
But yeah, the giant dog says as much. The world has had several masters and shinigami were just the latest.
What are you talking about? Quincy have ALWAYS had Christian motiv. From the very beginning even.
Aizen had a cross on his chest all the time. Hell, he was the beast from Revelations at one point.
What parts of Ishida's early power set was Christian related? Bow arrow and a bit of german. The weird 5 pointed start is strictly Christian?
As for Aizen, the butterfly stage with heads/mouths on the end of the wings/web? Thought it was just creepy butterfly/morphic symbolism with the already varied hollow designs.
he'll probably be the last quincy alive before H and A, so I bet he'll have some bullshit ability that makes him the strongest.
I mean come on, he's gotten more lines than any of the other sternritter, he's been running away the whole arc, he's definitely going to double back and be the strongest.
It was super popular, so it got negative attention from autists who feel the need to hate on popular things to cover their insecurities. Now that it's died down into a boring mess where nothing happens, it doesn't warrant negative attention.
Just ignore speed readers and shit posters. Not every bankai is going to be Yama tier, and if they were then those same people would be complaining about Shunsui being overpowered. The whole point of the elites is that they're closer to the Royal Guard in strength than the captains, hence defeating them is an actual challenge.
Weekly bleach threads are mostly a matter of expectations versus reality. If you're expectations are unrealistic than you're always going to be disappointed.
i don't see why people want them back though, if vizards taught us anything, it's that side teams job horribly and end up useless.
at best they get to save a character at the last moment and have a "my power is" moment, right before the villain regens and ichigo or some other more important char has to asspul and win.
Lille: So...this is what salvation feels like...
We see flashback of Lille walking behind Yhwach.
Lille: Thank you your majesty...for saving me...
We see a young Lille in a some slums, covered in Blood. A bunch of guys with spears threaten him. Next panel. Yhwach holds him close, surrounded by the dead bodies of the men.
Lille: I was always closest to you. The guard you relied on the most...
Panel of Lille standing behind all the other Shutzstaffel, nearest to Yhwach and Haschwalth.
Lille: But why...why...your majesty...does it feel so cold...and...so...dark...
We see a panel of Lille disintegrating, his wings too. The light fades.
Bleach 654: The Favor of the Fates
Shunsui: Nanao...thank you...
Nanao: Commander, it is me who should be thanking you. You saved us both and--
Shunsui puts his finger over Nanao's mouth.
Shunsui: Thank you...for giving me...a person to protect. Thank you...(full panel of Nanao and Shunsui)...for loving me...Nanao-chan.
Shunsui sees his brother and Nanao's mother in his mind.
Shunsui (thoughts): I'll keep her safe...don't worry. My final promise, to you both.
Shunsui collapses on the small slab of rock they're on.
She bends over and starts healing him.
Nanao: Now isn't a time for a nap. (she smiles through tears)...you idiot.
Scene change to Gerard. Shinji, Renji, Byakuya, Rukia, Momo, Hiyori, Hachi and Love are all battered up. Gerard is smiling.
Gerard: I told you...you can't play half-ass with me. Why do you all hold back your bankais? Are you all that proud? It'll take a miracle for your combined powers to kill me - so quit being idiots.
Renji: How is he so much stronger than the rest of them?
Shinji: I don't get it... his battle power is like nothing I've ever seen...yet he is just a guard...there must be an explanation...
Gerard: The favor of the fates...needs no explanation. Miracles can happen before your very eyes...if only you believe.
Gerard appears right infront of Momo, about to crush her head downward. Shinji blocks with his blade.
Shinji: Don't get too far ahead of yourself. Meathead..
Askin and Ichigo.
Ichigo: Get out of my way. I don't want to kill you.
Askin: That is a pretty arrogant position, Ichigo Kurosaki.
Ichigo: Whatever. If you aren't going to move. Then take a shot.
Askin: So aloof. You just make the assumption, that I am an opponent you can brush aside with ease. An opponent to offer your mercy to.
Askin: Right now...there are two Sternritter left alive, excluding our leader, of course. Myself and Gerard. That is no coincidence. Out of all the Sternritter...I am considered...by far the most dangerous combatant.
Bleach 655: The Most Dangerous Soldier
Ichigo: You talk too much.
Askin: You know...I hate fighting. But if you are going to force me. I might as well kill you quickly.
Cut to Gerard
Gerard: Nice block, helmet hair. But, you should focus on the offence.
He smashes his sword down, and Shinji dodges with Momo. The ground beneath them disintegrates.
Urahara (to himself): All the Quincy soldiers have a special power...assigned to them as an epithet. What does this guy's do...?
Shinji: You asked for it, not me. Collapse, Sakanade.
Gerard: What? Everything has gone backwards.
Shinji cuts him from behind.
Shinji: Confused? You should be.
He smiles, and his eyes glow.
It's the ideal combination.
Shunsui in shikai or bankai handles all conventional threats.
The extremely rare absurd/god-level threats get handled with the help of Nanao by his side
You don't remember that Shinigami Academy was founded approximately 2100 years ago, so your explanations are meaningless. Renji was the graduate of the 2066th year of shinigami school. That school mentioned in Yamamoto's flashback is the academy, must have been renamed later.
