Just fnishing reading last thread:

I thought it was common knowledge he gave her the gigai along with the hogyoku in it. The other way around is not logical.
I thought that as well, but when chapter 0 implied that Rukia has been in the human world before he solo mission I dropped the idea. On top of that, when Kubo got asked specifically about it in an interview, Kubo says "it's a secret".
What Aizen said about discovering the Hougyoku late was true.
Nel better not fucking die or revert back to her child form Kubo you fucking shit.
And why does he keep pushing Gerard more and more into a Yammy copy? Kenpachi,Byakuya, and Hitsugaya already had a fucking fight give some attention to literally any of the other captians
I don't understand how people can think he's referring to anyone but Rukia. She's the only Kuchiki he would think of in that situation, regardless of the fact that he never calls Byakuya "Kuchiki-san".
>Random mention of Rukia out of no where
Shes going to die isn't she
>>The one time Hitsugaya isn't super serious and he actually cracks a joke and he does it in front of Byakuya.
he really changed since his 'death'
Kinda of a legitimate question since he made the first one.
Well, yes. Aizen made his own hogyokou, experimented with it, found Urahara's (inside Rukia), stole it, woke it up, fed Urahara's to his own, shoved it into his chest. It seems they both could create more if they wanted to.
Because Ishida was given a schrift from Yhwach which undoubtedly gave him insanely broken powers comparable to Haschwalth. It may not allow him to win but he can definitely hold out a lot better than the old Ishida.
>seems they both could create more if they wanted to.
I thought the creation of the Hogyoku wasn't that simple?
I mean didn't they has to sacrifice tons of souls (and to suck the reiatsu of plenty of others) for that?
Plus, you've said it yourself, both Aizen and Urahara's Hougyoku ended up being different in that they were missing something that Aizen gave Urahara's hougyoku to his own hogyoku to feed it.
He died. Question is will he remain dead. But even if he survived or is revived, he won't live much longer, since Mimihagi doesn't halt his disease anymore. So by the end of this arc he will be definitely dead.
Just wait for Ichigo turning up to be Human-Shinigami-Hollow-Fullbringer-Quincy-SoulKing-MediumRareSteak and healing everyone, including reality.
Aizen was the first one to create a hogyoku.
>Plus, you've said it yourself, both Aizen and Urahara's Hougyoku ended up being different in that they were missing something that Aizen gave Urahara's hougyoku to his own hogyoku to feed it.
Urahara used quincy and human components
Aizen used shinigami and hollow.
By merging both, Aizen achieved ballance
Why don't you go fuck yourself.
Askin was one the best characters in this dumb fucking manga.
>no character in bleach has come back to life after obvious death flags!!!
Daily reminder that Aizen did nothing wrong and the series went to shit afterwards
In the Bleach jump ryu interview Kubo said he likes to do things his own way despite the editorial meddling. Byakuya became irrelevant after his death. Hitsugaya was raped by a trap.
Let's see what he will do with Kenpachi.
>Just watched the Fullbringer Arc
>Don't know a damn thing that is going on
I don't want to read all this shit. Fuck.
Or Yoruichi who will wear that armor her shota brother brought.
It would be funny if Soi Fon saved him and then bitched about having to do so for Yoruichi sake so she would not be sad.
to be fair Zaraki just had all his stupid limbs broken, where as Mayuri had taken all kinds of spirit laser arrow bullshit damage. Considering how stupid healing is in Bleach I take it sticking bones back together is easier than trying to get loose spirit particles to hold shape again. It's still stupid that Zaraki by all rights has been in that stupid tube for what, 10 minutes? 20minutes absolute tops? The fights all started around the same time afterall, and Hitsugaya only woke up when the Pernida fight ended, making room for Zaraki in the tubes. So Zaraki was in there for as long as this fight between Hitsugaya and The M has been going on, assuming they both needed the same ammount of time in transit to get from one disk to the other. Also did Kubo forget that he specifically made those things the ends of a 5point star? The only way Hitsugaya and Zaraki got from Pernia to Miracle was by going all the way to Yhwach's palace, ignoring it, and then going down a different arm of the star. And in the time it's taken them to run those laps Ichigo hasn't even gotten to the palace once yet.
He used to be so different back then, now he's half the man he used to be.
The fight with the giant guy would have been the perfect Komamura fight, but I guess they've got to blow their wad this early? At least the fight with the poison guy is almost over, what a crock of shit that's been

Anyone remember that BleachAnime.org website? I used to go on there all the time when I was 18, which is six year ago. I just decided to go back there and read through some of my old posts for nostalgia reasons, but the whole website and any mention of it seems to have disappeared from the internet. Anyone know what happened there? Some sort of archive I could check out?
It's still weird that nothing's been animated in quite literally 4 years. Atleast with Gintama they keep animating it, just with year-long breaks in between. The fact that nothing's been animated since Lost Substitute Shinigami Arc four years ago has me worried. Surely if they start animating the current arc now, they won't catch up until the end. There's way over 4 cours of stuff to animate right now, and if they start animating now, there's another year's worth of chapters to animate after it. Basically, Bleach has always suffered from catching up to the manga, but they won't have any trouble with that if they start now.
I loved the close-up panel of Urahara here though. He looked almost deranged explaining that he always plans for atleast 1000 outcomes for every battle. We always knew he worked like that, but having him state it with that face was really satisfying. Please be the final boss.
It's a large commitment. They stopped before the Quincy saga began and it's very lengthy and still going as you said.
They may not be confident in it doing well. Bleach has been doing poorly in Jump and it's likely attributed to fatigue from this arc. It would take a long time to animate and it could go over poorly.
They also really enjoyed making their filler. While they don't have to worry about catching up to the manga anymore, it wouldn't be surprising if they wanted to include more filler arcs as a means to break up the monotony of a really long saga. They really seemed to enjoy adding slice of life into it. That's even more time and development money though.
There's not much to do but speculate
>Ichigo has only fought twice in the last 4 years
3 times if you count his little fight with Yhwach.
I'm glad we got to see all the Bankai get revealed, but yeah, I'm waiting for Ichigo to fight again.
And I'll have this playing while I read.
He pretends to be mature so people will give him the proper respect a captain is owed despite his age.
After Giselle filled him with semen all night long he knows nothing he does will ever change that image
What EXACTLY did he mean by this?
As long as they don't pull a Toei and start elongating reactions and adding unnecessary animation then the current arc, up to this point, would easily be condensed to ~60 episodes of material. Which is only about a year. Of course it would take time to animate but still it's risky considering Kubo's track record.
The finale will undoubtedly spike the popularity, but it's still selling well in general particularly in volumes.
the fans are so casual they think it ended after aizen, that's why the ratings plummeted like a rock after he was defeated, they thought it was filler.
Most anime only watchers are surprised to hear the manga is even ongoing.
In rankings, it still sells fairly well
Arc fatigue is a very real thing, these manga sales wouldn't necessarily transfer over to anime, especially a very lengthy arc with side character after side character after side character going through the motions. This is where filler comes into play but that could backfire.
It happens with everything. You sell rights to the series to the publishing company so they will publish it and advertise it. Undoubtedly there's a contract involved and whatever is in the contract is between WSJ and Kubo. But Kubo does own a part of the IP, to what extent I cannot say, but I can't imagine he was ever given the rights to the anime and its production.
In this arc? Yap.
Pic related is the last time she talked to Ichigo.
And that talk reconfirmed that they share a deeper bond. Shinji was clueless to Ichigo's feelings.
They don't even need to talk. She felt and recognized Ichigo's reiatsu before his brother who is both keener and was a bit closer to Ichigo at that point.
I blame Kubo's pacing for your misunderstanding.
My theory is Rukia is asexual. Ichigo will end up as a captain eventually and will join Renji in the eternal friend zone. He will be fine with this.
Shinigami have no time for human emotions.
>Shinigami have no time for human emotions
That's what Renji tells himself at night to deal with being cucked.
Ichigo is going to end up with Hitsugaya because to find true love you must throw a sun of ice into a sun of fire.
Maybe it will have something to do with hougyoku? It was never stated Urahara hid it inside Rukia after she lost her powers or before that. It also doesn't seem that it was hidden in her gigai, at it was examined after she got arrested and Aized took it out of her spiritual body.
Don't know about Ichigo, but I'm pretty certain she doesn't see him as kid. She referred to him as man in her heart and her thoughts at the end of fb arc suggest she greatly admires him.
I don't think Rukia considers him a kid at all. Taking off my shipper goggles entirely they are probably the pair who respects and admires each other the most in the manga as friends and equals.
It's a good thing that Rukia both admires and understands him then.
I'd say she understands him better than anyone else in the manga.
You just shot yourself in the leg with those pages. He will never talk to anyone about that subject besides his father. If he was so close to her he would've talked to her already.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say here. She recognized that he didn't want to talk about it and didn't pressure him into it. It's shown multiple times throughout the manga that she understands him very well, and Ichigo understands her as well. They have a very close bond anon. Him not telling her has nothing to do with how close they are, he just hasn't told her yet because obviously he hasn't really had a good time to do so.
True, but I don't know why. I ship Ichiruki but it's extremely obvious that scene isn't supposed to be romantic.
You don't have to be an Orihimefag to dislike how Kubo treats Rukia. Instead of making her relevant throughout the story, he gives us bits and pieces of her. We have barely seen her in the past 4-5 years.
All of a sudden she becomes so important that Urahara uses his dying breath to talk about her? It's shit.
why does his mentioning her make her suddenly more important?
rukia and ichigo were both closer to urahara than most with all their dealings in the real world, he also probably feels like its his fault they got involved in all this bullshit in the first place
like fuck man, thats basic lvl reading
No, it wouldn't. Chad is a Fullbringer, that's where his powers come from.
I'm pretty sure this is bullshit, considering Tatsuki, who was with Ichigo more than anyone, didn't get a Schrift.
>how the fuck was it foreshadowed
>how the fuck was Ichigo being capable of tranferring power freely foreshadowed
Good question, anon.
Schrift are made intentionally. Ichigo awakening powers in others is involuntary. And yes Tatsuki, Keigo, Mizuru, Chizuru and who knows who else have received powers from him.
So, every human has natural powers? Right.
No. Read the conversation between Aizen and Ishiin in Deicide, Chad and Orihime got their powers from the Hougyoko.
Ichigo's magic just "pulled it out from the depths" or whatever.
That's why the other people from Ichigo's gang have can see hollows and shit but they don't have powers of their own, because they spent time with Ichigo, but not with Rukia.
Keyword being "by coming in contact with Kurosaki".
what is a "fullbringer" though?
its not some special seperate power group, its just a fancy name for people who can do shit
might as well call them mutants or something
Fullbringers are humans infected with Hollow aids because their mothers were attacked by hollows when they were pregnant.
Because he realizes that the Hougyoko is
a miniature spirit king
No, they have powers too. They're just not developed. The Hougyoku pair both aim to copy a single being and both used different methods to achieve that. But both were ultimately imperfect. However when Aizen fed Urahara's hougyoku to his own it became complete.
That being is likely to have been the soul king himself, or Yhwach. Meaning they copied the soul sharing aspect that is present in a single quincy born every 200 years.
Orihime has a broken ability, but the limitations and her own low stats devalue it.
Her power is rejection of events, however she has a reiatsu limit. Basically any injury inflicted with a reiatsu higher than her own will be difficult for her to reject, if not outright impossible.
>Fullbringers are humans infected with Hollow aids because their mothers were attacked by hollows when they were pregnant.
Common misconception. A fullbringer is one who has a parent, or ancestor who was attacked by a hollow and the hollow reiatsu remained.
Low caste quincy at best, just another human family is most likely. Also the nature of one's power is influenced to a lesser degree by genetics. Some of the most broken power users are literal nobodies, like Tsukishima and Rukia.
>injury inflicted with a reiatsu higher than her own will be difficult for her to reject, if not outright impossible
What will happen when she overcomes her limit? Or, what would happen when she dies and she joins Soul Society?
She also healed Yoruichi when Pernida fucked her arm. Her powers and limitations are weird.
I'm ready to see Zangetsu's true ability.
I'm ready to see the true form of Tensa Zangetsu
I'm ready to see that swords powers as well
Will he be able to use Mugetsu without sacrificing everything?
It'll happen and Kubo will make lodsamone from the fujos.
I don't really buy that. Hachi wasn't able to identify her powers, people throughout Soul Society were impressed by her powers. If something like that were commonplace, it wouldn't be that big of a deal.
It's going to be incorporated in his bankai, however, it shall look far worse than any of his previous masks did.
I just figured it was as urahara said.
Orihime is all about wanting things to go back to the way things were before, before this, before that, etc. So her power was rejecting events.
Chad wanted to protect and punch things, so he got punch powers and a shield
that would be something...
kubo couldnt draw the mask with any depth at all when he first started... it was really bad
i assume you were trying to be funny but thats probably pretty spot on
i expect his new bankai will look a lot like the white hollow that attack his mother
2x katana with the horned mask
>there are people out there that actually think askin is dead from just having his heart removed
she didnt have the tragic upbringing like chad or orihime, plus she was already pretty strong on her own
she didnt have the deep seated desire to protect those around her
but ichigo did rub off on her, wasnt she one of the people left awake when aizen invaded karakura?
>she didnt have the deep seated desire to protect those around her
What do you mean? She almost beat the shit out of Ichigo when Orihime went missing. Tatsuki loved Orihime, she would have done anything to protect her.
All the abuelos had moustaches just like barragan, before he turned into a spooky skelington. All the abuelos died and turned into skelingtons.
>Yamamoto has a mustache
>Ichigo swears he won't smile until he gets revenge for his mom
>his dad got it on a whim
>Ichigo went like 2 years without ever knowing his promise was fulfilled
>lost his powers and probably spent mother's day looking back at the fact that without his shinigami powers he'll never avenge her
>probably became a fullbringer just to fulfill his promise
Ichigo's life was really fucking depressing before it was revealed she was a nazi and died for the fuhrer.
I still think the reiatsu limits on her powers are weird. Sometimes it's a big point that she can't heal someone, but then someone with high reiatsu inflicts an injury and she heals it without a problem.
I think the reiatsu limit is bollocks, the only time that happened(that i can remember at least) was when Ulquiorra killed Ichigo, she tried to heal him and she couldn't.
But, her fairies told her that her power is linked to her emotional state, so i always assumed that she couldn't heal Ichigo because she was freaking the fuck out, i mean, Ichigo had a hole in her heart and Satan was tearing Ishida apart limb by limb.
Has ghost science gone too far?
I'm still sad her faeries will never be explained.
Now that funny 4chan image switch is done, lets try this again
back before the hogyoku or whatever I thought different cultures had different soul reapers and Chad's arm was just the mexican equivalent, and Quincy were german equivalents. Then we'd go globe trotting and meet different shinigami form different nations and it'd be great.
She got dropped, plain and simple. Kubo had plans for her, Keigo and Mizuiro at some point in the past. But due to time restraints that plotline was dropped.
That applies only when Ichigo dons the mask willingly early on in the HM arc. By the time of his second fight with grimmjow it had evolved past that.
Yuzu can see spirits, but to her it's just a blur. It's unknown if she can see higher level beings like shinigami and hollows.
He is capable, he just doesn't know. Even Yhwach himself did not fully grasp how to use his power to grant others abilities until he was 200 when he made the Sternritter.
Why would he give Orihime a power? Why would he want Orihime to get a power? He has always wanted her to stay out of trouble, he worried about her.
Wouldn't it be fitting if she didn't get a power?
Considering her power was literally a shield and insane healing. I'd say that's about as non confrontational as you can get. There's a difference between staying out of trouble and having the power to defend yourself if need be. The latter is always the better option.
It was her natural power that was awoken through Ichigo's leaking reiatsu. He gave her power, but ultimately it was power that was within her own limits. Refer to >>138765608
>power within her own limits
If Ichigo's reiatsu is able to do that to someone as weak as Orihime, I wonder what powers he could awake in someone like Tatsuki.
I still think it's far fetched that someone has the natural powers of event rejection. Her powers, if utilized correctly, could single-handedly change the world.
I kept expecting them to reveal orihime was undoing their progress at the same time as healing them, and that's why they seem to stagnate power wise. would have been a good way for Aizen to break her.
Actually a fullbringer's power is a hollow power so logically it should be the "opposite of oneself".
It'd be interesting to see what their natural powers actually do.
Reiatsu, plain and simple. Her power may be great, but in her hands it can never reach its full potential. She couldn't heal Ichigo, she couldn't heal the king, she couldn't stop Yammy's attack with her shield. Those are her limits. Her power is not absolute.
I really wonder what significance the faeries have. Tsubaki is actually incredibly strong if used correctly.
Her powers have sentience. Even after she passed out they still exist.
>Just Kubo hamfisting an irrelevant Orihime into the story.
Fixed that for you. She destroyed Bleach when she became the center focus of hueco mundo's arc.
The only thing Kubo has been hamfisting is Orihime. There never once was one rational explanation for her increased roles in Bleach.
Kubo gives her special treatment and favors because BIG TITS and LOVES ICHIGO. Kubo loves her. She had a personal tutorial to use special powers. From fucking fairies. Powers that never made sense. She's shit.
>she would have done anything to protect her.
Bawwww. Orihime repaid her friend by forcing Ariaswa to search the whole fucking town looking for her, punching Ichigo, and defriending Ichigo all for Orihime's sake.
That was a physical wound. When it comes to those she has no problem, but i think energy based wounds is when it becomes tricky. She basically has to replace the "bad" reiatsu with her reiatsu in her targets body, but if its too strong she cant do anything.
Trying to get 5 star characters on Brave Souls is suffering.
Honestly, one of the biggest missed opportunities in my opinion was Kubo never having Tier Harribel and Ichigo meet.
I mean, they had so much in common yet enough differences that if they ever met, she would have definitely joined the ranks of the bitches that wanted to see his Bankai.
It's a sad day when any Sharkberry fics I find are all shit, or are good but don't focus enough on the pairing, or the fic dies with no explanation.
Only two I can think of is Curiosity by NeonZangetsu, and Selfless Sacrifices by Sabaku no Kyuubi.
And even then they're both "meh" tier dreck that hasn't updated in 3-4 years. There were others but I'd rather not list them because JESUS FUCK my taste was shit back then.
>Beaten offscreen by Yhwach
>Hasn't been seen since
I get the impression Kubo just didn't want to ever write her again.
I don't care about the reasons, I miss stripper shark.
Anyone else got the feeling, that whatever Urahara has planned for Ichigo and Rukia will not be a good thing? Rukia was integral in restoring Ichigo's Shinigami powers, something Urahara said is equal to robbing Ichigo of his future. I think Urahara did something to Rukia (wouldn't be the first time), that transformed her into a catalysator that will activate something with Ichigo. Whatever it is will change the tides into Urahara's favor and have bad consequnces for Ichigo and Yhwach. Urahara may become the final enemy.
I finished both hard and normal 100%, and the max 300 orbs from co-op and the only 5 stars I got were all Tosen. I seriously have 4 Tosens.
I finally restarted and got White Day Gin and Aizen.
I just bought the 250 pack to get those 3 <3
He's a genius who prefers a more relaxed lifestyle, leaving his captaincy to become an eccentric shopkeeper who takes care of others, including a couple of children, while still looking out for the world and dabbling with experiments. To just make him "evil all along" after all this time and turn his back on everything seems like a poor, contrived twist.
Doubtfull. Urahara was dead serious and Isshin didn't want to hear about it. Urahara almost never asks for someone's consent with his plans. But this time he wanted to make sure, that Isshin is okay with it. Add to that, that Kyoraku said Ichigo could be locked-up for eternity and that something needs to replace the Soul King. Isshin was also not happy, that Ichigo was sent to the Soul Palace.
Not evil, but a well intentioned extremist. Like he wants to de- and reconstruct the world with his own hands, so he can change it for the better. A world withut a crappy afterlife, without the Soul King system with out the Shinigami-Quincy conflict.
I don't think the twist is going to be that he is "evil", i think when Ichigo finds out the truth(whatever that may be) he is going to disagree with Urahara's views.
Urahara desperately wants things to stay the way they are, while Aizen is the idealist, "a victor should think of the way things should be!" and all that, i think that Ichigo's view of the world is going to change and be more in line with Aizen's once the truth is revealed to him, and that's going to force Urahara to fight Ichigo.
Yhwach is just evil, there's no way he is the final boss.
Don't think Yhwach is just evil. I think he stated out as good, but getting the Almighty corrupted him, like it did to Haschwalth. Yhwach will probably also want to make things better. At least his definition of better and will probably be revealed, that the Quincy are fighting for a just cause. especially with the Soul King's limbs working for Yhwach. Yhwach will probably be right, that he isn't Ichigo's enemy and that he shouldn't trust the Shinigami. Doesn't change that Yhwach is a huge dick though.
Yhwach wants to change the world, but he probably is going full on "GENOCIDE SHINIGAMI, RACE WAR NOW, QUINCY MASTER RACE", so basically his version of a better world is the "bad end" version.
Aizen's version is going to be a better world, from his point of view, which is probably not going to be particularly good, so let's say, neutral evil.
Urahara wants things to stay the way they are, so, neutral. But consider that things are pretty shitty everywhere in the current bleach world. Everything outside of seireitei is fucked in Soul Society, the human world is no different from the real world version, there's murderers, rapists and shit, and Hueco Mundo is just sand as far as the eye can see. Which is why Aizen wants to change the world and hates that Urahara just pretends that things are fine the way they are.
Aizen is still a villain though, so it's not like Ichigo is going to side with him entirely, Ichigo will probably come up with his own answer, which will be the good end.
Do you really see an ending where Ichigo doesn't just Ultimate Getsuga his way to victory over the ultimate, definitely evil threat? You think the eccentric shopkeep is the guy who will push him to his limit? The guy who has now shown his bankai and is already in really bad shape after his fight with this subordinate Quincy ?
It seems pretty cut and dry at this point regardless of how many twists Kubo pulls out.
>Urahara desperately wants things to stay the way they are
Only because he doesn't have a better alternative - yet. Killing the Soul King isn't the right way to fix whatever is wrong with the universe because doing so will destroy it. But a proper solution will be found before this story ends, and Urahara won't stand in its way.
In my head, i picture Ichigo just defeating Yhwach the old fashioned way, he'll getsuga his mustache off.
Yhwach is probably going to die after giving Ichigo a speech of how the Shinigami are the true enemy, at which point Aizen and Urahara are going to show up and Ichigo will basically have to decide who is right and who is wrong.
So, because Aizen is evil, ichigo will have to fight him, after fighting Aizen and "understanding" him, Ichigo will reach his own answer which will put him against Urahara.
I don't think Urahara is going to push him to his limit, that's Aizen's job, Ichigo will be all fucked up after fighting Aizen, which gives Urahara a chance. And Urahara has tricks, don't forget all the teases he has dropped over the years, like when he told Aizen that he "understood" the Hougyoko. I wouldn't be surprised if Urahara made another one.
Are you implying that Urahara's true Hyogoku project was Ichigo all along and that everything been his plan to perfect it by feeding him strong opponents to the point he could subplant the soul king with him?
It was a response to Ichigo's suggestion to move their fight elsewhere. Aizen meant it as in "if you're worried that our fight will wreck this town, I can kill you without damaging it".
No, but Urahara may double cross him for the greater good, And Yhwach is not the ultimate evil Kubo himself said the Sternritter (more specifically Yhwach and Haschwalth) are either villains or enemies, but not both. So it stands to reason that either the true enemy or villain is someone else.
>Yhwach is not the ultimate evil
Went to Hueco Mundo and took control, Invaded Seireitei Twice and killed hundreds of people including Yamamoto, Went to the Royal Palace and build Wahrweld, and now he plans to invade the real world
Not evil my ass
Well the Shinigami did the same. They invaded the world of the living twice and killed allmost all the Quincy. Yamamoto has countless zombies under his command. They imprisoned the Soul King and cut his limbs, so they could ruler over their version of a crappy afterlife. Yhwach is evil, but he isn't unjustified. And Kubo did say that Yhwach is either an enemy or a villain but not both,
Also the Shinigami are constantly lying to Ichigo and using him at his puppet. At least Yhwach is honest with him. He even pities Ichigo so much, that he genuiely considers killing him an act of mercy.
Quincy were messing with the balance of the worlds and refused to stop. There continued existence would have meant death to all dimensions
>They imprisoned the Soul King and cut his limbs, so they could ruler over their version of a crappy afterlife
This is bullshit
>Yhwach is either an enemy or a villain but not both,
Yhwh said that not Kubo
and he was talking to Ichigo who is a Quincy by birth. For all intents and purposes Yhwh is not his enemy
you take that back!
It's like a shark, but way sexier. It's a good thing.
Pump your breaks boy
When it comes to brown sharkgirls I have no brakes.
>Quincy were messing with the balance of the worlds and refused to stop. There continued existence would have meant death to all dimensions
That was the reason for the Quincy masscre, which may also have been a lie, since one of the special Quincy was born around that time. It's highly doubtfull, that all the Quincy could have been mobilized, so that they can actually kill all the Hollows and treaten the balance. Even the Wandenreich wasn't able to do that. And even if they were able to do that, that's no reason to kill innocent civillians and children and infants. Also the reason for the First Blood War was a different one
>This is bullshit
Yeah, sure. That the limbs of the Soul King just happen to be working for Yhwach, that the Shinigami are the Soul King's enemy, that Yhwach considers killing the Soul King is ending his misery, that Shunsui just happens to be in possesion of a sword that disperses the power of a god into all directions and that the power of the Soul King in the form of his limbs just happened to have been dispersed into all directions, is all just a big coincidence
>Yhwh said that not Kubo
No Kubo did once a tweet about that
He did, while talking about Yhwach and Haschwalth A fan question asked, why only villains/bad guys have german names, citing Starrk and Ulquiorra as examples. Kubo answered, that these two names aren't germanic and then tweeted, that the names of the Sternritter at present are geman based. He used Haschwalth and Yhwach as examples, that their names are geman spellings. Kubo then said that enemies/antagonists are something totally different from villains/bad guys.
Well since there are seven days left, Ichigo is most likely not going to win the current confrontation. Only way he may win is, if Yhwach is not the final enemy, but someone else. History says, the actual enemy of the arc turns out to be someone, who is supposedly nice and a Shinigami, while the guy everyone thinks is the actual big bad is not. Either way Ichigo's going to loose.
On the one side we have a discussion about, who Ichigo's real enemy is, whether or not Yhwach is telling the truth and the meaning behind the whole conflict and on the other side we have a discussion about IchiRuki, IchiHime and Halibel being sexy.
That sums up the Bleach fanbase quite well.
you're god damn right she is
It is, but the volume has incorporated elements from both Theatre Suicide and Baby Hold your hand. The volume poem for example can be interpreted to be from Mayuri's or Nanao's mother's perspective. It is also written in a style common for theatres. And the majority of the volume was theatre suicide.
>yfw the Hand was for clapping the theatrical performance
Well yeah. All the stuff that involves plot is speculation, and shipping and plot can change on Kubo's whims. We just don't fucking know, and it's to the point where honestly not much can be accomplished by discussing it.
Halibel's sexiness and the overall quality of Bleach girls are both verifiable and replicable.
I find it funny that you think so. The shippers and waifufags discuss all those interesting things with you, and then you obliviously curse them for having a bit of fun. Anonymity, eh.
It's just that discussion about Bleach can be exhausted, but love cannot.
I wasn't cursing them. I just think, that these two topics are what interests the bleach fans most at the moment, well at least here, and that the posts were a good representation of that.
>"After all there is no need to destroy....."
Shoddy translation. There are plenty of different translations of that line, and it's hard to say which one is correct without the raws. As for why Aizen cared, I said in my post that it's Ichigo who cared, not him.
Pardon, I mistook you for someone else. You're right though.
I wish Kubo did a chapter devoted to status update on all the characters and what's going on. Finding out a year later whether someone is dead or not is horrible. Maybe it's his intention to keep us in suspense though.
I wonder where everyone else went? Byakyua was already up with no scratches. If Rukia had been injured bad, I very much doubt that he would've stayed that calm. I doubt that Hitsugaya would've joked either if the situation was grave. Who knows, the damage of getting whacked into buildings is somewhat inconsistent throughout the series.
Though that wasn't always so. We no Soul Socoiety and the current balance of souls was an artificial one and only created through the installation of the Soul King. If it could be changed once, it can be changed twice. Also when Hollows kill Quincy it also fucks up the balance. They are poison to each other, since they are opposites. Quilge's soul has been completly destroyed with no chance of reincarnation because he was killed by Grimmjow.
There is a serious lack of Gigi. People seem to like shipping these two. It's the most prominent Quincy ship out there.
I think it's rather pointless to ship them. She was already his zombie, and he used her however he wished. You can't go further than that. It's canon.
Especially now that both of them are dead.
Giselle did say she loves Bambietta very. The zombification was like a Yandere locking up the her lover, so they can be together for eternity. Orihime will probably heal Giselle and the other two. If Giselle's alive, Bambietta's alive, since Giselle can kill and reanimate Bambietta infinitely.
Now that you mention it, Orihime is on her way to the throne room where they died. She could heal them - if their bodies weren't disposed of. Yhwach's past history of cleaning up doesn't let us hope for much though.
Cute characters and women get a pass from Kubo though, so they might still be there. Perhaps all the soldaten are dead and Yhwach was too sleepy to clean up. He went back to sit on his throne after dealing with them, right?
shipping is the wrong word. There's no romance, no love. Just really hot domination. Seriously I'm still surprised this page got in.
I think he was a senior at the start of the fullbringer arc, and this can't be more than a few months after that. Would be funny if the series ends and they missed their graduation, but I'm not convinced Ichigo won't 'die' this arc.
havent cringed like this since forever, its like a physical form of autism
A Different Path by Kiwifan7 is quite good.
He immediately went to sleep. And no one is allowed to disturb his majesties sleep. I'm certain the Soldat would never do that. Schutztstaffel was out fighting and Haschwalth was busy playing clue. Bazz-B is probably still lying at those stairs to the throne room.
Post a pic of your ABSOLUTELY favorite Bleach character.
He's dead since the fight with Ulquiorra here's proof
I've been wanting to re read bleach for a while now but not sure what site I should use. Which site would have the best translations and give me the best experience?
The best work (HQ scans, good cleaning/redraw, good translations) was done by a group called Ju-Ni, but I don't recall if they did HQ of the really early stuff. Sadly they went inactive a few years ago.
Does favorite character also count as waifu?
A great character doesn't need to rely on looks anon.
