I don't think they're going to defeat him. Who else wants a villain winning it all?
true gentlemen leaving the gate open for them so kubo doesn't have to waste 10 chapters having them trying to figure out where he went/how to get there.
Final fight in karakura town confirmed.
>announce that this will be the final arc
>the Quincy arc has been going on since February 2012
>announce that the ending is nearby
> Miracle and Jugram beaten by plot
> Liltotto, Giselle and Bazz pretty much confirmed 100% dead with that second "let's kil all my allies" wave
> Grimmjow and Nel didn't do anything
> Harribel still in the rape dunjeon
God fucking damnit Kubo. I'd rather have had more fight with the resurected 0 division that fights everyone left. here were lots of characters that still didn't do anything, it's more frutrasting than the shi you usually put.
And thinking about it, Kira vs NiggerOwl really got taken care of offscreen.
> tfw Aizen REALLY ends up not doing anything in the finale
>Steinritters about to kill half the protagonists
>they get killed by Ywach so that he can kill the protagonists later
WHAT IS THE FUCKING POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOINT???
In-universe: Yhwach officially shows that he has zero shits given to the Sternritter.
Not in-universe: Kubo is locked into doing X more chapters, and he's very frustrated about it, causing this worse than average development.
Kubo's comment regarding the annoucement:
Can someone edit this and put Ichigo in it?
- Strawberries , despair in trembling , further to get some of the slash from Bach , most dying .
Bach has been talking to Sasuke of Orihime for her kaleidoscope . Orihime denies all of the events around her , but Bach saw it .
Standing next to Ishida to help Rukia in the rapid expression of Renji , you come to the scene . Rukia , but comes to the rescue of Ichigo , Bach , he says and saw that there is no other character that can beat Sasuke Madara when it comes .
Bach , he is above yaps about what was won and Rukia , you can Ichigo and Orihime go .
While they have escaped , Bach will not be able to escape Naruto . They will fight . Action Do you want to go back to Bane ? On his plane
i love google translate
Ichigo's true power is to absorb everyones strength. This is confirmed, he is basically Yuha. Just like how juha took his sternreitters powers, ichigo is going to take soul societies power
He still has his shinigami power. Watch him become a true shinigami, unleash Mugetsu 2.0 and lose his powers after he kills or more likely "seals" Juha. Bleach will end the exact same way it should've ended after Aizen. With Ichigo saying goodbye to Rukia and going back to his normal life.
Where is Yhwach going?
The timeline tree that spawns gorillions of roots(routes) and when he finds a timeline that has a happy ending he'll go invade that and ruin it?
>he finds a timeline with Rukia and Ichigo and their children and kills them all
>there's a 10 behind the black splotch
>10 chapters of comfy post-timeskip SoL before the end
>Ichigo is enjoying the married life with Tatsuki, Hitsugaya settled down with titty monster Momo, Uryuu has his own fashion line, and so on
>ends with Yhwach popping out and murdering everyone with a stupid grin on his face
>there's no single timeline where EVERYONE gets their happiest moment
>another 10 chapters, only this time Orihime wins the strawberry, Tatsuki wins a world championship, Momo locks Aizen in her rape dungeon, and so on
>then another 10 for Aizen, then another for Rukia, then another for Nel, then goes back in time to do the dead people too...
>RUINS EVERY CONCEIVABLE BEST END.
>abruptly ends for real when he finally reaches the last person on his shitlist,
the reader anticipating a payoff after all that
I wonder if his editors told him to get on with this shit. Feels really weird for him to just up and kill Haschwalth/Gerard and have Yhwach fuck off to another realm.
But I guess that is just literally what Aizen did in FKT
Friendly reminder of Ichigo's contributions this arc:
>Beats fetish Nazi but falls into his trap anyways
>Goes to SS and immediately loses and has his bankai broken by second in command
>Fails to regenerate his zanpakuto and gets sent back to the real world
>Gets pep talk from his dad and then fixes his sword
>Returns from Soul King's Palace, accidentally letting Ywhach invade without a key
>Fucks around with some bitches without killing any, immediately has to return to Soul King Palace
>Confronts Ywhach in front of Soul King AND THEN PERSONALLY KILLS SOUL KING HIMSELF
>Gets his ass knocked back down and has to work his way up to Soul King Palace AGAIN
>Loses to poison guy
>Confronts Ywhach, breaks his bankai IMMEDIATELY AGAIN, gets his powers absorbed, and his resolve completely broken
Has there ever been a more worthless MC in all of shonen?
So are we going to get 10 chapters of status quo/flash backs/rebuilding soul society while ichigo acts like a hollow shell, afraid of doing anything so that he doesn't hurt anybody by being happy?
Actually the 5 war powers combined can strain his Almighty ability so there is a possibility
He can't see the Soul King's body parts. His powers don't allow him to
Uryu's Antithesis powers reject the Almighty and therefore can block it.
No. He's going to be completely broken. He's going to shut everyone out except Rukia.
We get 10 straight chapters of Ichiruki bonding like we've all been dreaming of. We get that conversation we've been waiting for since chapter 23.
AFTER 12 YEARS IVE BEEN WAITING BOYS HERE IT COMES AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
IT'S THE FINAL ICHIGO AND RUKIA REUNION
IT'S HERE IT'S HERE IT'S HERE
>The reverse trolling is here
Oh boy here we fucking go again
At long last the elite 4 are more or less officially done away with, other than Lille's underpowered flock of laser birds
>He still cant recognise shit posting
You took the bait hook line and sinker my friend
IT'S GONNA HAPPEN GET THE FUCKING HYPE FUCK FUCK
>We get that conversation
He told Inoue about his mother before Rukia. He was shouting 5 chapters ago at Yhwach how he was the one who killed his mother. Inoue heard wverithing, them Ichigo revealed he was pretending to be upset in order to wake up the hollow.
Inoue knows more than Rukia about Ichigo.
I miss the anime.
He's pretty much Omnipotent at this point.
I see one big asspull coming.
Like his power rejects him or destroys him from inside, because he sees the future is better without him etc.
>Rukia walks up to Ichigo
>Falls to her knees after seeing the condition hes in
>It starts raining on them
>She cradles him in her arms
>"Y-Y'oure such a fool Ichigo"
HOLY SHIT DOES IT LOOK FAMILIAR?
>such a unique turn of events, never happened before, Kubo's hands must be forced
>Aizen turns out to be the bad guy instead of Gin, Ichigo gets his bankai stopped by a finger, Rukia decides to stay in SS.
>Harribel gets killed by Aizen, after 110 years and countless chapters of hype the Vaizard contributes nothing to the battle except for Hachi, Ichigo's immunity to Kyouka Suigetsu is never used even though it was set up because Aizen reveals the Hogyouku and never uses his illusion powers ever again.
You seem to be ignoring how easily he steamrolled a war potential (I think the war potential list was referring to hindering his chances BEFORE he got this powerful.)
If Ichigo wasn't jobbed here and actually put up a fight, I'd buy it, but as it stands they've got no fucking chance unless Kubo asspulls.
>Momo locks Aizen in her rape dungeon
Where is my spinoff where shinigami substitute Aizen is taken captive by evil momo and must be rescued by gin
>mfw IchiRuki on suicide watch
Giving the head canon shippers a chapter of reprieve before getting btfo is cruel Kubo. God bless you though.
>no more updates on what the fuck happened to kira and what he's up to
k-kubo-tame......p-please.... no more..... n-n-AHH!!! please s-stop!
you stupid shipfags kubo doesn't care about romance in his cartoon comic books
>I don't want to make Bleach into a love story because there are much more exciting things about their personalities and things that they can do instead of getting into the romance aspect of their relationships
but Kubo's editor might put a ship in the because bleach needs a final spike like kiSHITmoto did with Naruto.
Also kubo's favorite bleachfus are Yoruichi and Rangiku
>Multiple chapters that follow are Juha killing everyone's happy ending
>Juha sits back down on his throne
>"THE END [OF HYPNOSIS]"
>Next page is the panel of Ichigo from a few chapters back attacking a sitting Juha
Honestly Ichigo cares too much about his power to waste time on romance, in the end of the aizen battle not being able to see Rukia again barely had any impact on him, and he was thinking of moving away and leaving Orihime behind, he had no interest in those two.
On the other hand losing his power was enough to make him suffer from massive depression, Ichigo loves being a shinigami, anything else is just irrelevant.
His massive depression was losing Rukia and his power. That's why he kept having dreams about her. Rukia IS his power. She is the symbol of his power anyway.
It makes sense. She started it all anyway.
God fucking dammit Yhwach has yet another powerboost by taking Ichigo's and all the sternritters powers away. Just how the fuck can anyone beat him without the biggest of all asspulls? Reminder prebuff Yhwach before even absorbing the Soul King easily one shot Yamamoto and the monk.
>Reminder prebuff Yhwach before even absorbing the Soul King easily one shot Yamamoto
He used the bankai stealing seal with him. Pre buff Ywatch against Yama bankai would have lost, like it happened with The Yourself and with Ywatch 1000 years ago.
>and the monk
No, he beat him after he got the first Almighty buff (opening is eyes and making every technique against him not work)
if ichiruki happens next chapter wtf am I going to do with my wall??
>Manga announced to end
You know what this means
>anime announced soon after
At first I didn't like this at all, but it grew on me fast.
YEAH YEAH YEAH
But anon, you can't stamp on people's feelings like that. It's rude.
With the power of
I was about to respond to this without watching the video with that one ending where they are all around the city doing jobs, but then I remember that this one is actually GOAT. Weird listening to the cut version though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ej9WMbmE5k cant even tell if this shit is warped or not.
>people wondering how to beat him
>it's fading into PURE WHITE
they pretty much announced it right there ffs, this is bleach, color matters a fuckton just look at rape monk.
i bet my fucking ass that rather than make him weaker, not having quincy and hollow parts fucking around inside him will just make ichigo some max power full shinigami and he'll use his "pure white" power to fuck juha over.
and since this is fucking kubo, ichigo will get some bullshit power like either being imune to time shit because he's too powerful, or changing the past, in direct contrast to bach.
Honestly any power up from ichigo will be disappointing now, he lost against Juha, thats all there is to it, he used all his powers combined and he still lost.
Getting a new power up is not going to wash away this bitter taste of ichigo becoming the ultimate jobber.
Besides if Juha wanted he could have killed him, any victory on ichigo part will be tainted by by this moment of mercy from Juha.
What unanswered questions are left?
Obviously the biggest one is WTF is the Soul King anyway, how is he related to Yhwach, and why did his parts end split up with some of them becoming Quincies? That's a long question but it should take only about a chapter.
The other questions are mostly about unrevealed Bankais. Isshin's and maybe Aizen's are the only ones I'd bet on seeing now.
except, we don't know if juha can see himself/his own death, a drawback often present in these kinds of powers and might have consequences regarding his defeat. we also don't know how ichigo becoming "pure white" will affect any of that and we can be certain it will have some kind of impact because it's fucking bleach.maybe it'll make ichigo invisible to juha, a sort of wild card.
besides, what happened here is nothing new, just a reminder that until mugetsu ichigo literally could do nothing at all against aizen and got fucked over every time he tried anything. this is just the same on a bigger scale.
one thing i thought was dumb was why didn't ichida spam his power against blondie?
i mean yeah he reflects the misfortune and increases it, just keep spamming it until it's so much "misfortune" that he becomes too fucked up to reflect it or his power breaks. maybe even fire an arrow at his head while he's distracter reflecting shit, or target the shield and break that shit.
>Ginjo comes and returns the hollow power he stole from Ichigo
>Uryu gives him quincy powers and the 'A', like his father helped him recover
And nothing of value was lost
Did Ishida lose his powers?
Was he even effect by Ywach power absorb thing, did he just negate it again?
Can't with his power, basically restore ichigos powers to the point before Ywach took them back
In fact cant Ishida give Ichigo any power he so desires by swapping with someone else
Where is Ywach going?
Also regarding Ichigos "Bankai" Wasnt it basically the opposite of what it used to be?
He used to just condense his sword then the extra reshi would just form the new clothes around him now his sword just becomes slightly bigger with no change of clothing no way that his new bankai.
Also where the hell is Ywach going and why did he kill all the strenritter single handly
Well now Ichigo has no hollow OR quincy power, so he's a pure shinigami.
Which means he's going to have to look for some way to re-hybridize if he wants any hope of beating them.
Oh look, they happen to have Aizen around who has the hou gyoku.
Seal him in another universe/dimension. Urahara, Aizen and Mayuri have all been shown to have done research on space and time. It shouldn't be hard to make a machine or weapon that can ensnare him in a dimension/void that he can't come back from. Of course, the real challenge would be springing it on him in a way he doesn't see coming
well he said IF they follow him, he will find the future and slaughter them there.
Which implies that where he's going will allow him to traverse time, but also means he won't kill them while they're there.
Which begs the question of where he's going.
it must be the nexus between worlds.
so in all this stupid time we've learned nothing about Yhwach's real origins or real goals. why would yhwach taking powers back even affect Gerard anyhow? they said he and Pernida already had their powers before Yhwach anyway.
>Ichigo goes to the future and sees himself with a son and daughter with Rukia
>Jewach's power is to steal other people's powers
>Ichigo's true power is to mimic other people's powers
>he mimics Jewach's own ability to change the future, basically canceling each other out and leaving Jewach with no power unique to himself
>he throws every bankai he's ever seen at Jewach in a 20 page nostalgia trip fan service thing
>plus he has Orihime's ability to reject any damage done to him
>uses Aizen's ability to completely fuck with him and leave him a cowering helpless mess
>his final attack is Renji's bankai infused with Rukia's ice powers, Sado and Uryu's powers, and Orihime's reality rejecting power to literally blast Jewach out of existence
Then Ichigo explodes and blows up New York City.
>all these people posting about ichiruki reuinion
you guys realize they won't get the moment you think they will until AFTER the final fight, right?
Next chapter is either going to be an explanation of whatever the fuck ywach is doing, or it's going to be Isshin and Ryuuken arriving, explaining something that gives them all hope, and ichigo discovering his "true" shinigami power.
mark my words, ichigo will become the next Soul king since he has no more hollow or quincy parts, he is now a full Shinigami therefore he will become the soul king
This is not a color page and has nothing to do with the chapter.
It's just an announcement page, they must forced kubo to draw it in 1 hour before the print deadline since it's looks like shit.
Given what we know about his desire to remake the worlds (specifically mentioned at one point destroying the barriers between them and forging a new one) and the fact that he can manifest events, I have to wonder if where he's gone is basically a shadow world that exists outside the others, so he can remake them to his own liking.
So he'll remake the world to be this perfect, wonderful place for any of those who come after them, and then strike them down.
But it does really sound like he's planning on merging all the worlds.
It would be pretty interesting to see Kubo just switch to the new world, with Ichigo slowly figuring out something's wrong, especially once his friends start dying. But that won't happen because Isshin and Ryuuken arrived for a reason, and ywach killed off the stern ritters for a reason (from a story perspective)
this implies that the various shinigami will get together with Ichigo's nakama and Isshin/Ryuken to come up with a plan.
That plan will likely be to don the armor that Yoruichi's brother was carrying around, and probably to enfuse everyone's power into Ichigo somehow so he can take on Ywach.
I only expects that Rukia heals Ichigo's soul... infront of Inoue
I suspect he did not, and that the only reason The Miracle died was because his body was basically already destroyed.
Same thing happened below, several stern ritters died, but some did not.
>he doesn't go to the human world
>instead he goes to hell
>he puts together an army of 12 or so uniformed super powerful demons each with a unique power that answer to him
>also when he dies its revealed that he's actually not batshit crazy evil and that everything he did was rescue his childhood friend/waifu from hell
>he literally trains himself to have ungodly powers just so he can one day abolish the unfair system that sends people to hell so that he can rescue someone who was wrongfully imprisoned there
Will she confess her love finally?????
Yes. All of his powers drained.
So manga is ending this year... and then I ask... where the fuck is Aizen and like the rest of the previous characters like's Ichigo's sister or Tatsuki??
>All of his powers drained.
nope, just his quincy and hollow powers.
He's still wearing his shinigami garb for a reason.
Remember that his zanpakuto was a hybrid. Ywach could only take away the powers he got from his mom, not his dad.
>everything is fading
>to pure white
Post yfw Yhwach just unknowingly unlocked Ichigo's true powers taking away the hollow and quincy powers that were holding back his one true full potential shinigami power which is literally going to be called Bleach
How is this shit still running?
Even fucking Naruto is more coherent than this garbage now.
>Yhwach gets defeated. About to die.
>You get a flash of his ambition.
>He just wanted to create a world where The Soul Society, The Human World, Hueco Mundo, and The Wandenreich live in peace together without conflict.
Me neither I thought it was vengeance for Shinigami killing his kids the quincies but now hes killing the guy who controls Bleach's reality itself because?
Yhwach is a shit villain because we dont know what his goals are, and now Kubo has him laying waste to the real world for some reason even though Yhwach never once gave a flying fuck about the real world.
>whole manga fades to white
>it ends and no one ever talks about it or mentions anything relating to bleach ever again
>all copies of bleach fade
>the anime disappears and can't be found ever again
I don't want Bleach to end, I legit feel like a part of me is gonna die with it
I presumed that was taken with his hollow powers, since it came from his mom.
if the fullbringers give him his power back, that could be interesting, but, consider this.
What if the transference of power rukia did can also be done on an existing shinigami, and Isshin transfers his power to Ichigo?
Landwhales on tumblr are killing themselves right now.
So that's what, five arcs in a row now where Ichigo has unlocked a new power and then immediately lost it?
>Vizard mask never used again HM
>Final Getsuga robbed him of all his powers
>Fullbring stolen 2 seconds after he perfects it, never even learned it's fucking name
>Bankai 2.0 gets castrated by Toofsy
>Bankai 3.0 gets castrated by Juha
YFW the almighty jew just fought a temporarily powered-up Kon, Orihime was there to somehow reject his ability to notice, and Ichigo is about to slap his shit
Does anyone remember in the Fullbring arc how they said that everything essentially has a soul, including shit like cups, or pavement, etc?
Well, by extension, would it be farfetched to assume that Time has a soul as well?
It could be that Time is pissed off at Ywach for constantly selecting the future he chooses to be. Maybe if Ichigo gets his Fullbring powers back, he will learn to resonate with the Soul of Time, and counteract The Almighty.
The whole bankai being unrepairable is horseshit honestly I mean lets think for a second THESE ARE FUCKING SWORDS MADE FROM PIECES OF THEIR SOUL, and you tell me they cant just regenerate the blades back in one piece? The entire HURR FIX ICHIGO'S STUPID SWORD arc was a waste of time and an excuse for Kubo to give Ichigo a power up that went to shit because LolAlmighty raped him.
as much as we bash popular manga/anime like the big 3 (and for good reason since they, along with the larger portion of shounen are all shit full of age-old cliches and twists) the mere amount of time most of us spent following the stories, the trainwrecks, the bullshit and shitposting along make them a part of our life.
let us hope that at least bleach has something like infinite butthurt works naruto caused to narusaku fags with it's ending.
DEATH AND STRAWBERRY 3 IS COMING
HEAD FOR YOUR BUNKERS! IT'S COMING. KUBO IS COMING!! THE MADMAN!
>Bleach the world, Kubo
>Ichigo uses his zankaputo to create infinite realities with infinite levels of stupid bullshit that drags on forever aimlessly
>Yhwach looks into the future and sees all the bullshit, flooding his senses all at once
>he goes mad and kills himself
they can be repaired, they just can't be restored without a reforging (I.e. a new asauchi)
And that DOES make perfect sense. If you break a blade, you can weld it back together, but it'll be forever weak.
check out this theory
Nah, it will be Nurutu-tier when Ywach gets killed or absorbed by some being that wasn't forshadowed. This being actually turns out to be weaker than Ywach. That would make it on par with Naruto.
yeah I notced that everysingle time.. but what was the Hogyoku thing? can't remember right now
Honestly this guys ability was overpowered as fuck, that's why Kubo made him a retard who traded it in for raw strength against Kenpachi. Giriko and Facebook-kun have abilities that can probably fuck with The Almighty.
Everything is highly suspect...
Aizen will be the one to heal Ichio
Fucking cap this calling it now
Ichigo will be able to use Hougyoku better because of his hybrid nature
And since Hougyoku works with your will, Ichigo will heal himself and gain his powerback
One anon already pointed it out
Next chapter is going to look exactly like this except.
>Rukia kisses Ichigo or confesses her love for him
>Kon will be Renji
Are you ready for the butthurt ?
Thats only because he lost his powers
Aizen will simply explain Hougyoku can restore his powers 10x better with some keikaku twist related to Hougyoku's nature somehow being able to counter Yhwach.
Then we Number One again
The cucks were meant for each other lad

Saving this thread from autism. Gracious. Gimmie best girl.
What if Yhwach went to hell?
Ichigo still has his fullbring powers. so fullbring training again.
I for one enjoy shonen for what it is. Maybe it's because I'm a manchild, but I don't think that style of writing is bad, just different.
So if I'm reading this correctly Bach just disappeared and is going to leave them walking on egg shells and kill them once they finally breath a sigh of relief and are lost in a happy moment with their friends/family?
I waited for years but there isn't going to be any moment when he legit comes back
Rest in peace brother ;_;
Using the power of the past. Ishida's power is to take things that happened in the past and apply them to the present. He's able to choose the future, but if you apply the past he won't be able to stop it.
You, I like you. I will shitpost against IchiRuki till the cows come home. You and I, we know the true end.
Dude I made this image over 4 years ago
why do you have it saved
How come squad 4 has the best semen demons who happen to be best captain and lieutenant?
It was fairly obvious at first he was filling an additional persona/shadow role in Ichigo, as much as it sucks it would make sense we wouldn't see him after Ichigo consolidated his power.
There is a chance we may see how he is now that the hollow power was taken away, and the quincy power keeping that in place gone, it would now be just him with pure reaper power now
But I wouldn't hold my breath for it
Kubo's Bleach already has the layers, I always imagined it having some powerful demon on each level, on the 9th one being Bleach's version of Satan, who equally with the Soul King keep the balance of the world.
At what chapter did you "catch up" with Bleach for the first time? For me it was this, I used to read it at onemanga back then.
