So Kubo is literally fucking with us at this point right?
He's so DESPERATE not to follow typical manga fight guidelines that he's making ridiculous and underwhelming bullshit at every turn instead of any sort of ACTUAL payoff.
I bet Ichigo will lose the final fight against Ywach, but Ywach will suddenly realize the error of his ways and kill himself.
Toriyama keeps making up abilities just like in fullbring arc. There is nothing wrong with making a new ability all the time, its the fact that nearly all of them are blatantly overpowered or so oddly specific. For example there is this one character who can imagine anything and it will happen, there is no reason for this character to try and get stronger because of this bullshit power. Characters like this just keep being made one after another, yet Ichigo & everyone else manages to overcome them by some ass pull training/secret technique I've been saving/bankai.
>no delicious Yoru-nee to destroy your brown shota ass
I read Bleach for Yoruichi and only Yoruichi at this point.
Also Sharktits.It's safe to say that if there was a manga with someone like her as the MC, I would read it.
Not so subtle with the cat thing any more. I like it.
She loses and her shitter of a brother wins.
Just watch. The last two fights have gone like this and it's mirroring the fight with Thor.
Thor God of Thunder has become heaug and is fighting the brother sister team of Rukia and Borrito while Yoruichi who now has lightning powers being pushed pretty hard on her is fighting bestritter with her trap brother.
If bleach were still popular and had a devoted fanbase would of had some incest/ss/ artwork and doujins already as well as Orihime/Nel paizuri in their new dugs. or maybe even femdom doujins with the bambettas or Unohana.
I remember Kubo saying the last two or four verses were about Ulquiorra or should be read together with his heart poem.
I'm actually not understanding Gremmy's poem, and what it says about his character.
True beauty is based upon which that does not exist
If Giselle couldn't create new doujins, then only the anime can. So let's wait until Bleach is finished and maybe then could the anime return. So we've to wait at least two and a half to three years.
Btw, does anyome think, that Yoruichi's cat form could be the key to victory?
All the artwork is on twitter now. The artists from pixiv are posting there. There are weekly chalenges to draw specific characters.
Bleach is still popular. You are uncapable of finding out what you are searching for.
>Guy can avoid lethal "doses" of stuff and make that thing instantly lethal for his opponents
>Cats have 9 lives
>Yoruichi looking pretty catlike in OP
No I don't think her cat themes will come into play.
I think if you had them as your siblings your life would be much darker
or deliciously browner
So Quincies originate from Germany (or at least from somewhere in northern Europe). Gerard being inspired by a Nordic god further supports it.
Then how come one of the first sternritters to receive a power from Yhwach was a black man of apparently Latin American origin?
>mfw I just started highschool when the anime ended
>now in my first year of uni and the anime still not back
I am losing hope
I liked Yoruichi better as a grumpy old man cat
This is the third fucking SR fight Ichigo just passes up on. Furthermore this time he did it after seemingly having adapted to Askin's power. It was still affecting Orihime and Chad so don't say the effects had worn off. How ungodly is he if not even a top tier SR isn't good enough for his bankai?
>True beauty is based upon which that does not exist
This is actually quite simple to understand. Beauty can be seen as an ideal, not a form in the strictest sense.
He's using shikai, but hell even a getsuga is too good for anyone short of an endgame boss right now. I'm not sure if I like this current setup with the MC being so ridiculous near the end that he can't have a single fight. In a way it is good because supportive characters get to shine when the MC just goes "fuck it, later fags" every time, but on the other hand Ichigo's level has been ambiguous ever since the fullbring arc. His only worthy adversary so far has been Yhwach and every time they've met they've been interrupted without either of the two giving it their all.
Yeah, but what does it have to do with Gremmy. Probably something about him not being real. Gremmy needed more screentime outside of his fight. Maybe there could be more insight if he comes back. It's not like the brain itself is dead and he could be the Soul King's brain. Though I'm not sure if I would like that.
It's useless. We'll go past 700 chapters in early next year. Bleach has a bunch of negative numbered, or unnumbered chapters. We should be around mid 680s right now.
Impossible. Bleach would be over in 43 chapters. That would mean all the questions about Ginjou, the Soul King, the first war, the Ishida's, etc could never be properly answered. Let alone giving them a proper fight or role in this arc.
>Gerard defeated by incest
Askin is best quincy, and nothing you can say will change my mind. Also
>South American origin
Maybe it's somehow related to Soi Fon's?
>Your shadow, quietly
>Like a vagrant poison needle
>Stitches my footsteps.
>Your radiance, lithely
>Like lightning striking a water tower
>cuts down the source of my life.
Partly, but it's more her funny and fucked-up personality. Cute and psycho I guess. Most fanart is actually from girls. They also like to ship her with Bambietta.
In Japan the top 5 is actually more like this: Giselle, Haschwalth, Bambietta, As Nodt, and then either Bazz-B, Liltotto or Cang Du. In the west it's I would say it's Askin, Haschwalth, As Nodt, Bazz-B and Giselle
Sometimes his poems are pretty straightforward and easy to understand
Aizen had 2:
>We think a flower on a cliff is beautiful
because we stop our feet at the cliff's edge,
>unable to step out into the sky like that fearless flower"
This one foreshadowed that Aizen was a bad guy and his mentality, he wants to be the one that steps out into the sky.
Here's his other one:
>All people,imitations of apes,
>All gods, imitations of people"
Harks back to his speech about how people keep looking up to a higher authority
It may also be foreshadowing how the closests thing to "god" the Soul King was created and treated by the Shinigami and how relatively easy it actually is to become "god", like Aizen and Lille did. In some languages the poem is tranlated as "Humans are nothing more than apes, Gods are nothing more than humans."
>Harks back to his speech about how people keep looking up to a higher authority
I interpreted it as Aizen's perspective of the Soul King and the people who worship/serve him and how all of them are beneath him.
Funny how Kubo gave his volume the unique title of "God is Dead" which actually bears more relevance than we ever thought in retrospect. Someone with the galactic ego of Aizen would absolutely lose his shit at the idea that a literal corpse is somehow at the top of the food chain of the universe.
Number on fanart of sites like pixiv. Of the Sternritter Giselle has the most, then Haschwalth, then Bambietta, then As Nodt and then either Bazz-B, Liltotto and Cang Du. Bazz-B's popularity is only recent though, because of the Friend chapters. Before that he had even less than Gremmy, who is actually more liked than I thought.
It's also a quote of Nietzsche. Aizen is basically the Übermensch and his speak about "how winners have to think, how the world should be, instead how it is" would Nietzsche probably proud, while Urahara's response "that this is how the world is supposed to be" is something the Last Man would say. The name Wahrwelt also comes from Nietzsche. Bleach is actually alot about progress vs stagnation with the conflict of the Quincy and Shinigami and even the Soul King's arms, who are on opposite sites.
Tosen's also gives a little more insight
>Every human is evil by all means
>In order to imagine justice from oneself
>There is no other way but to imagine that every other being is more evil than oneself
>What it means by definite justice,
>in order for evil justice to be accepted as justice,
>one must always question justice from within oneself.
I'm not sure if Giselle is still the most popular, but I would say, she's still very high and probably still in the top 5. I would like to see though how the Sternritter would fare in an official poll compared to the Arrancar and Shinigami.
Yoruichi is getting with the times
I'm used to saying she and there is no real confirmation on Kubo's part. She most likely has a penis, but she could be futa or something like that. And if she identifies as female, it's in my opinion just proper form to refer her as such.
>it's in my opinion just proper form to refer her as such
Not really. These people are mentally ill and highly dysfunctional. I can get behind the idea of just playing along for the sake of avoiding drama, but you're not really doing them any favors by allowing them to continue deluding themselves.
Kishi makes as clear distinction between races
Look at a black character (Tousen, that guy in the Royal Guard who makes zanpakto) and then look at Yoruichi. If you thik they are the same race you are blind.
Why the fuck does she have to strut around half naked.
I love her and I know she just doesn't give a fuck but come on. Makes her seem so trashy. Is Kubo incapable of grasping that sexy women don't need to be revealing?
Because she can and is confident in herself
I think the problem lies in Kubo not having drawn women who look nearly as negroid as the guys. While it's clear that characters like Gantenbainne are supposed to black, the closest we've seen female-wise are Jackie and Mila-Rose, who honestly look more like hispanic, or anime-asian-with-dark-skin, than black.
Yoruichi is probably supposed to be a sand negress, but until we see a straightforwardly black lady in Bleach, it's hard to quell that suggestion.
Also there is no "white look" or "asian look" in Bleach, at least not generally.
Are people actually attached to these Quincy characters? They all mean nothing to me, I don't remember half their names and if anything, they disgusted me (Pepe, Zombie bitch). When will the ride finally end and why aren't I getting off
Took me ages to come to care about the Gotei 13 as well, not to mention the shitty Fullbring and Vizored that I still give no fucks about. Based Shinji is the only exception really and he's been jobbing for the past years.
I'm really hoping for a big reveal about the Soul King, Ishida and the Gotei 13 being inherently bad or something along those lines.
Good catch, my mistake
>I think the problem lies in Kubo not having drawn women who look nearly as negroid as the guys
Didn't really think of this but I think you're right
Charlotte's gauntness and blue eyes implies that he's mediterranean, rather than ethnically African. The thick nose bridge is there too.
>Yoruichi is probably supposed to be a sand negress
Just because some chinese cartoon characters have brown skin doesnt mean they belong to any real ethnic group.
And stop being such a fucking faggot and appreciate yoruichi or any other delicious brown you colossal prick.
I hate it when loser skinheads try to turn anime or manga chicks into a race 3D issue
Get the fuck out
He told her to dodge it and obviously never intended for it to be a serious attack, she managed to steer away in the end. Candy never stood a chance.
>Just her father's brother
>Not blood related
>Ichigo won't return to human world
It's gonna happen.
>Why does Ichigo always hold back when fighting girls?
It's his mommy/nee-san white knight complex that he's had as early as Grand Fisher.
Gamma from Zombie Powder had a similar weakness.

Not a sword user, fits with ground theme, would make sense
Once on Yoruichi squad, must have trained with her, seems the kind that would learn Shunko
She breeded you, she clearly has mastery over fecal matter
>Autism: this poster >>135331940
That one is obvious and confirmed by Tite Kubo himself on his most recent interview, it's even on the wiki.
I'd also add Water as the possible element to the Shihoin from the first squad. They prolly had one there. Also, maybe Mashiro and other bare-handed fighers could get it if Kubo finds an excuse for it, and maybe this guy's >>135331940 dad has the gay element too.
Friendly reminder that Rukia is best girl, best Shinigami, and has the best Zanpakuto.
Why hasn't someone made an edit of this part. tsundere Yoruichi
Using Shunkou destroys the clothes that cover your shoulders and back, it was explained during the fight between Yorouichi and Soi fon. It happens to yuushirou too see: http://readms.com/r/bleach/657/3138/17
I think you need your eyes examined.
