Rereading bleach atm and will post some pages that had some connection with the current revelations.
this one's on zangetsu/yhwach protection
Sniper nigger got wrecked harder than this and lived, the guy who's power is not dying isn't gonna go down so easily.
Plus Urahara just started using his Bankai and Grimmjow hasn't done any actual fighting/used Segunda Etapa so
I think he'll turn into a gigantic molecule.
>Askin's second form is a devil
>terrible stuff will happen in continuous succession and your life may spiral into despair
>Lucky number : 666
>Lucky color's red on black
askin 2nd form's revealed to be the devil and Benihime is an effective counter to it. What a luck
OP spoilers generally come out before Bleach though. At least since ohana quit.
Also the netabare spoilers have been out since Tuesday (i Japan). I have my doubts.
All that says is that Urahara healed Grimmjow on his way over, says something about the Arrancar made by Aizen, and that he thought Grimmjow would be useful because of his reiatsu or something(probably the Quincy poison factor). From what I can gather.
>implying there won't be a "but wait I still have asspull x up my sleeve"
I do not think the hollow aspect protecting him all this time was ever implied. If anything, Yywachzetsu wanted to do everything to protect Ichigo, and it's clear he was in control of the hollow power at some point.
Apparently Askin set it to go crazy if he was fatally injured or something like that, and is trying to take them out with him.
Urahara isn't looking so good, and apologizes to Ichigo and Rukia before the scene switches to Gerard.
No no, for once it's the opposite. Everything happens, the chapter. Askin is done, Neliel is seen in the distance, Kenpachi returns, Hitsugaya is there too and Byakuya as well.
This chapter is setting up for the next big fight and it's going to be a really big one.
Also, arrancarization is the supposed final phase after hollowfication. Going by this logic arrancar Tousen was the strongest of the hybrids except Ichigo and Ulquiorra.
He tore off his mask, so yes he did become an arrancar. To begin with arrancarization is just a way of bringing turbulent and unstable reiatsu under control. At least that's what it is for hollows.
Since when did he ever say that? Gin says that "isn't gaining a hole in your chest one of your greatest goals?" to Aizen. Granted, Hogyouku modification is on a different level than normal hollowfication.
He told that to Ichigo when the wound caused by him was closing on itself. Ichigo thought it was Instant regeneration, when it looked more like Blut Vene. And Gin's words were wishing to die with a hole in his chest.
Hate? No. They're greatly overused and having them pop up to conclude this shitty arc while Shinji and the others rot is beyond disappointing, on par with Chad staying behind to finish fodder statues.
I SURE AM GLAD THE THREE CHARACTERS WHO ALWAYS GET SCREENTIME ARE TEAMING UP AGAINST THE LAST ELITE STANDING
HERE I THOUGHT KUBO MIGHT DO SOMETHING LAME AND DIFFERENT
HAHAHA THAT WAS CLOSE
Who else? Shinji and the Kamen Jobber Squad? Doggamura and Iba? Chair-sama?
Don't get me wrong, I utterly despise Icefag and ByaKKKuya but it's not like Kubo could have made fujos' favourites lose AGAIN.
As for Kenpachi, I'm still waiting for him to get that fucking eyepatch off and to show what the shit Nozarashi really does aside from soloing meteor-conjuring brain shotas.
Haven't you guys learn anything?
Stop doubting the Almighty.
They were brought in order to btfo in the next chapter.
Personally? I was hoping for Isshin to show up to save Hitsugaya and reunite with him and Rangiku.
I mean, I would have loved Doggymura to show up for KNOCKDOWN MONSTERS 2, but that was as likely as Soi Sauce beating Askin.
When is bestboi going to reappear???
>Literally did nothing wrong
>Gin will never show up dramatically at the end of the chapter to save Rangiku from a Sternritter
>Gin will never injure Yhwach with his god slaying spear to help Ichigo
>Gin will never defeat Askin with poison even he can't negate in time
Why even live?
I wanted him to be the sword that killed Captain Himmler ;_;
hiyori gets cut in half, is fine.
icefag gets cut in half lengthwise, is fine.
icefag literally dies and is resurrected as a zombie, and then is fine again.
grimmjow gets btfo, is fine
bestbois lieutenant gets most of his upper body shot off, still driving his honda civic to work listening to the cure.
gin gets stabbed and loses an arm, permanent KO.
fuck you kubo.
>People getting upset because Kubo is using the most popular characters
WHY WOULD HE DO THIS?! IT MAKES NO SENSE TO INCLUDE THESE POPULAR CHARACTERS IN A SERIES WITH A DECLINING RATE OF POPULARITY! IS KUBO MAD?!
Dude Bleach is so shit it's actually unironically sad that Yoruchi is imprisoned in such a shit manga.
>icefag literally dies and is resurrected as a zombie, and then is fine again.
again, icefag NEVER died. Kubo even made a point of Mayuri pointing out icefag WASN'T dead too. When will people learn
>some disgusting newtripshitter replied to my post
>he doesn't even know about saltyicecream but that's expected from a retarded newfag using tripcode without contributing anything
I almost puked. Don't even reply to my posts again.
>mfw everyone but hirako survives the fight with thor
even renji can't catch up with him anymore in the race for being the king of jobbers
>so new he can't into samefag checking
You won't really need to worry about it though, you'll be back on reddit in like 15 minutes.
Yhwach was suppressing his shinigami power, but he couldn't suppress the hollow because Quincies are weak to it. That's why it almost took over Ichigo. Now he's in balance with it.
That being said, it's impressive that Ichigo managed to suppress his hollow with nothing but quincy powers and suppressed shinigami powers.
You call it lame, I call it not monotonous.
If askin went full, insane, esoteric creature mode like Pernida and Lille, I would have been angry.
Him dying here at least somewhat breaks the paradigm.
Who the fuck is this supposed to be?
>Nel's hair is colored grey to indicate green
Clothes are the same. Wish I had the raw scans, but MS will do here. And the head accessories are her horns, retard.
>she's just ass and tits
She's a great character but maybe if horny autistic teenagers gave less of a shit about how much ass and tits should be shown to please them maybe we wouldn't have so much cancer.
Well that's funny, I was sure that it was grey. And I had completely forgotten the shape of her horns. In fact, I had forgotten that she had horns to begin with.
He started to drown in all the other characters Kubo kept creating and keeping around because he has no idea what he's doing, so now he just makes intermittent appearances to rescue people and resolve problems to move the plot forward. The story doesn't have much room for Ichigo to have a personality.
>Grimmjow rips his brain out
So we waited five million years irl for Urahara to show off his bankai and when he finally does it's borderline useless, barely does anything and his enemy dies from a different character's attack moments later.
And now Urahara is done in the manga.
Urahara isn't going to show his full power against a random mook, we're not going to see his full power until he either has a rematch with Aizen, or has to fight Ichigo.
That said, i expected way more from chapter 666.
I think he said somewhere that he likes drawing wrists.
>when Aizen's Arrancars use Resurreccion, their Arrancar reiatsu becomes just Hollow reiatsu
Aren't Arrancars supposed to be Hollows with Shinigami powers? Does this mean they lose Shinigami powers in Resurreccion?
Best thing I can say about this arc is that I didn't expect a black sniper guy to turn into half a dozen giant rubber chickens.
That's about it.
Also was anyone else surprised at how underwhelming squad 0 was?
>Someone redoes your OC
>Can't even take 10 seconds to add a finger
>It's a "kenpachi arrives just in time!" chapter
>Also was anyone else surprised at how underwhelming squad 0 was?
They were just fine. It's not that their performance was underwhelming, it's that Kubo showed next to none and offpaneled them after all that hype.
I wish I could say Kubo's keeping Urahara in reserve until Bach like he did when Urahara got jobbed by Aizen..But Kubo's a flaky writer almost all the time and that's when he's not being completely brilliant.
Big guy's final transformation will turn him into a real female valkyrie
My dick is ready for action
You're thinking of Mahana, aka my
I hope this is the last Kenpachi/Byakuya/Hitsugaya fight. They're overused but each could use a final hurrah in this manga. Especially Kenpachi, who has never felt the thrill of using Nozarashi to cut up an enemy. I expect him to make Gerard get really big.
>MFW I'm the only one here who likes Byakuya
HAHAHA fuck you all
I like Byakuya, what i don't like is that he gets so much screen time compared to other captains. But then again i think pretty much all the other captains are either dead or dying.
You have been visited by the Mexican Man of Irrelevance
Chad fights and victories will come to you but only if you post EL DIRECTO in this thread
Christ, I forgot how fucking big Nels tits were. Ridiculous.
So far for the main antagonists in Bleach :
>Aizen and his Arrancar (Shinigami & Hollow combination power)
>The Fullbringers (Human with special power thanks to the Hollow)
>Wandenreich (Elite Quincy with extended power)
Why Kubo didn't introduce antagonist from Hell and full extend of using power of Hell itself?
Shuren and his lackeys are just escape convict and Ichigo only use the Hell power temporarily.
When I die, I want it to be by being smothered by those, Hime's, Yoruichii's and the Royal guard cook woman who's name escapes me, but only while she's skinny.
But Hell is secretly waiting until after Ywach is defeated
Then Ichigo, his friends and some captains will have to go rescue Tatsuki from Satan and his elite followers conveniently numbered 1 to 10
Also everything has a Chinese theme
Kubo at his best. Characters that still have potential or have been relatively well-fleshed out (Kyoraku & Urahara) get shafted and taken out in asinine fights while we get the press-x-to-win trio again. Magnificent.
Wow kubo must be getting really desperate to be reeling all the fan favorites back into the picture this late into the game. Especially when he went out of his way to specifically write half these guys out just to declutter things in the first place. Ratings must've be on the down slope.
Espada were 7 sin themed as an early early drawing board idea. By the time Grimmjow showed up and Kubo named them Espada he dropped the themes and increased the number from 7 to 10. It wasn't until much later that he tried to shoehorn it back in with the aspects of death thing, half of which didn't even fit.
Romans then, or Greeks, or medieval knights, or generic spiky flaming demons.
Then Aizen in his seraph form. He was exactly like Shiva. His throat was blue/purple because he had snake poison in it and when he opened his third eye all hell broke loose upon Ichigo.
>the aliens have their own versions of Shinigami that travel through space and time to invade Earth
Next arc is Satan trying to steal the next spirit king(either Ichigo or Aizen) after Yhwach is dealt with, Satan is defeated in the end but as it turns out he was GOOD ALL ALONG.
Turns out the Spirit King was the first human-Ayy hybid, and either through the Hougyoko(in the case of Aizen) or because of his generic makeup(in the case of Ichigo) another individual like the first Spirit King has appeared and it turns out that the AYYS travel the galaxy planting individuals like the Spirit King in worls so they can create souls, later on the aliens return to harvest the souls, but the spirit king was sealed to hide him from the AYYS, and now Satan was trying to do the same with Aizen/Ichigo but he is stopped.
AND NOW THE AYYS HAVE RETURNED ONCE MORE
>Ichigo launches Getsuga Tenshou from the moon itself to destroy them while Orihime sits teary eyed nearby, Uryu watches blankly in silence and Chad is lying on the ground face down
this return of Zaraki presents all kinds of issues with our KO count. Until now it seemed pretty clear that Kubo was clearing the table of needless characters, which was why it was a fair bet that if someone was shown being knockedout that they probably wouldn't be getting up in time to rejoin the fight. Now I don't know who's liable to jump back in. I'm not about to go un?ing everyone just yet though, mostly because it's just a pain.
Askin is the most funny character in Bleach and also one of the most broken.
He always acts pathetic and weak so people underestimate him easily, and then he becomes immune to you and rapes your shit.
Is this one of the most unique powers in shounen?
>Chad and fireworks guy
I haven't followed this series in a long time but this sounds hilarious
They get the nameless goons
They should have Don Kanonji and that shinigami with an afro show up to help
Why Rukia all of a sudden?
Also the chapter number is in kanji again
Ho ho! Time to whip out the old shipping goggles me thinks.
>Your face when Urahara will die
Kubo said he left twitter because some horrible shit will happen in the series and he doesn't want to face the shit storm; fanbases getting butthurt and flinging shit.
This gives me hope we'll see more Rukia Ichigo interaction sometime in the near future.
Daily reminder that ichiruki will be canon soon
Yeah, you're right. My statement was false. It already is
I was there when this happened and I remembered it differently. He left because people were trolling and harassing him on Twitter. The twitter was about mostly his personal life and unrelated stuff. He was basically instagramming food and shit, and making blog posts about weather.
all I could find on it
>Following in the footsteps of voice actor Toshiyuki Toyonaga, the usually active Tite Kubo has suddenly quit Twitter on Thursday. He offered no explanation, only writing the day before, "[Notice] Tomorrow night, after about 24 hours I will delete my Twitter account. Until that time, please direct message me."
>The Bleach manga creator made good on his promise and his account is now gone. Prior to this, Kubo often engaged with fans and confirmed news through the service.
>Following his departure, Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine posted a notice on Friday stating that false photos originating on Twitter are being spread online that are being passed off as photos of Kubo. The magazine's editorial department added that "such acts infringe upon the personal rights of Tite Kubo," and stated that they will pursue legal action to deal with the matter in the case of malicious intent.
Does this mean I can ship Inoue and Chad?
Since they spend more time together than they do with Ichigo.
>false photos originating on Twitter are being spread online that are being passed off as photos of Kubo
Is he talking about that porn actor in a fishnet shirt that's kind of a Kubo lookalike? Or is this some other shit I missed?
I agree. Plus, they even have a color page together.
I guess Hitsugaya didn't know anything going into that fight either, actually. Too bad Hanatarou's stuck in some kinda off screen limbo. His ability to heal wounds and turn them into more wounds might actually have been useful.
I'm pretty sure he left because pic related
Maybe he could only absorb attacks and increase size once. Sounds like something Kubo would do.
Askin also stopped using his other ability to increase the deadly dose of shit in other people's bodies and just started throwing poison balls.
When his size increases, does the shit in his intestines also increases? If it doesn't, wouldn't small drops of shit just fall out of his ass as his asshole gets bigger? Alternatively, if he eats while in giant form, does the shit get smaller as he revers back to his older form? Or will he have to take a huge dump after he's back to small size?
I have similar questions about Ant-Man and the Hulk.
I'm not sure how people could believe that's Kubo. It looks like he's doing the exact opposite of an asspull.
So it definitely looks like that final Gift Ball DX as a last dying breath kinda move. If we're switching over to Miracle does that mean we're just not going to get any kind of a backstory on Deathdealing? Nothing about who he was, how YHWACH found him, why he's a normal guy with powers on par the other elites? It definitely felt like he'd be the one to drop some exposition before this whole elites fight was over, but I guess not? Should I just
Askin defies the convention of the rest of the elites though, since he just got slotted in because Gremmy got rekt by Kenpatchi. Askin doesn't have a grandiose backstory - he's just some Quincy dude who got his powers and joined with Yhwach because he was curious how his vision of the new world would pan out.
>Urahara is gonna get BTFO the first time he gets serious
It's never explicitly said, but when Gremmy shows up Askin exposits that he's considered the strongest among all the Sternritter, and after Germmy dies Askin is seen musing if that means he'll end up getting "chosen" or not. So the implication is that Gremmy was a member of the elite, and once he ate shit Askin figured he'd be next in line.
Also, nice digits.
would be a waste to kill Urahara off against askin. If he does die, then there goes the whole speculation of him being the secret big bad with a keikaku so deep that makes everyone scream KUBO for the next year.
Ichigo and Byakuya team up to save the day?
Makes perfect sense
how come literally every bankai has to summon some giant shit now? what happened to the cool looking swords?
Why didn't Urahara just defeat Aizen in front of Ichigo?
Why didn't Yoruichi just defeat Byakuya in front of Ichigo?
Why didn't X just defeat Y in front of Ichigo?
Do you see the pattern? It was all leading up to this.
When I say "Only Urahara's bankai summoned a giant in the last arc" I speak about the bankai we didn't see till the last arc.
Komamura's bankai was just hollowified and Mayuri's one was just modified
On the topic of Rukia holding the god rock, was she specifically chosen by Urahara to store the hogyoku into? Or was it like a convenience thing?
Why not Yourichi? Isshin? Tessai? Or just some random human?
Real answer: because at the time that plot point was written, Urahara was probably supposed to be the final villain.
Bullshit answer: of course he wouldn't want to put it in one of his friends, and maybe putting it in some random human wouldn't work for whatever reason.
>Komamura's bankai was just hollowified
>Hitsugaya acting comedic because "lol Byakuya straight man"
Fuck off, Ice Faggot.
Goddamnit, why Nel out of all people went in to save them? Two guys who could've made this a breeze are conviniently absent,(Hachi, and especially Tessai). Just get them outta ball and voila- no senseless casualties. "this is war" my ass
I'd like to see an alternate translation
>Tell that to the reddits and the haters, that call us "Nig**rstream" because of how liberal our shit is, which by itself is extremely racist because it's implying black people are the most profane which is bullshit and race doesn't have anything to do with profanity. But then again stupid people and haters wouldn't really put any thought into what they're saying to begin with due to lack of IQ.
Its been like 10 minutes since this happened
I've never looked into any popularity charts, but is Shinji really so unpopular that he can't have a single moment to shine? He could have had his moment right there but no, Kubo just had to bring Kenpachi back after he has already beaten one of the strongest sternritters.
I guess Shinji could still show up but still, this is fucking bullshit
Why did Urahara go from perfectly fine in one panel to "I'm dead senpai," in the next?
Did I miss something?
>Askin is dead
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE KUBO
YOU HAVE NOT GONE KUBO
DEAR GOD HE HAS UN-KUBO US SO HARD THAT HE HAS GONE FULL KUBO.
But the difference between something that happens in 1 day and something that happens over several days is making a more realistic show of the world you're creating.
