Would drop the manga, but it's ending soon, so there's that.
At least post the REAL picture
The sword isn't broken, it's still completely usable. Everyone take your bets on why it didn't break.
1. Aizen is fucking with Yhwach
2. The leg of the Soul King is fucking with Yhwach
3. OMZ is fucking with Yhwach
Which Bleach has the best body?
IMPORTANT BLEACH ANNOUNCEMENT EVERYONE HOLY SHIT SOMEONE TRANSLATE THIS
ユハ・バッハは彼の万華鏡を起動し、 「私はそういちごは思わない」と再びいちごの力を取るバックシーンにyaps 、その後マダラにポータルに戻ります。いちごのたわごとはまだ犯されます。しかし、その後、突然墜落した飛行機の移動の下でCIAの死体？
For some time now I've wanted to watch Bleach eps/movies with /a/ again (alternatively just chill with the OST playing), but it's so bothersome. If I stream myself, I'll either get banned, there will be only a few viewers, and it's such a bother in general to set things up. And it's not even release day.
Pessimism is a bitch.
I mean, I wouldn't watch you guys circlejerking about Rukia, but you'd probably get a decent amount of viewers. There's a lot of newfriends in these threads lately. It won't be exactly like the old times, but it'll be close.
For me always my water empress.
I'm game for it.
JUST SHATTER MY WHOLE LIFE UP SENPAI
I don't fucking want it to end like Saint-Seiya. Anything but that holy shit.
>Ichigo's sword shatters
>Renji dies taking him to safety
>Aizen defeats the final boss all by himself
I don't think I've ever seen a story where the main antagonist is killed solely by some other antagonist. A former antagonist turned ally might land the finishing blow especially if the hero is too pure to do it, but having an antagonist actually solo the final boss is unheard of. I hope Kubo actually does it.
SHIT THAT WAS USED FOR ONE BATTLE AND WILL NEVER MATTER AGAIN
>Renji's new Bankai
>Hitsugaya's mature form
>This actually has a chance of happening
aizen will trick iwatch, who will understand it and be strong enough to resist it
ichigo+bow guy will hit him hard (damage reverse + upgraded banthing) while he's dealing with aizen
last blow by the useless red hair guy
4 guys to kill him, lots of powers disappear, everyone goes back as normal
bow guy as new soul king
aizen is dissapear
last blow by useless dude, because he's useless
iwatch won't bother looking for his actions in the future as he isn't a treat (and 3 badass are actually using all the bandwidth)
This better be the case because the pacing, if you can call it that, is terrible. Why is all this shit happening? Why break it twice? Why have both the dads show up and then do nothing? Why have these boring as fuck sternritter fights where they all have some bullshit power that Yhwach can just take back whenever but doesn't to Ishida who'd probably only gonna use it once anyway and it won't work? There's just nothing happening beyond cheap suspense and "twists".
I'm literally the one who loves Orihime the most!
Fighting the statues for Ichigo's safe journey back, after having defeated Yhwach.
>Yhwach kills everybody in the area
>"I'VE DONE IT! HAHAHAHAHA I'VE WON"
>His laughter echoes for two panels.
>We zoom out
>He's actually in a catatonic state
>Aizen's had him in an illusion from the second he walked in the door
>"Since when were you under the opinion etc. etc."
Aizens bankai will be to manipulate opinions. He'll convince Bach that Bleach is shit and leave, while getting the higherups to prolong Bleach and give him his own spinoff in the process.
>Ichigo kills Yhwach
>He goes back to the stairway where Chad is still fighting the statues, bruised and beaten
>Enraged, Ichigo activates final getsuga and uses Mugetsu on Chad
>Nobody even bats an eye
How come a lot of people hate Orihime but love Hinata? If Hinata got as much screentime as Orihime, she'd be the exact same. It's typical shounen fare, the insecure girls always end up crying on the sidelines, contemplating how useless they are.
Hinata literally had her face in the dirt after her last good moment, praying her dead cousin saves Naruto. That is the same type of attitude that Orihime has. That being said, I don't hold anything against either of them, I just don't see why Orihime is treated so radically different. Both are kind girls with a low self-esteem who just want to support the person they love despite their weaknesses, it's odd to praise one and condemn the other.
The reason why Ruki/a/ is getting left behind
It's the anime adaption, anon. That's the biggest reason that Orihime has increased in popularity lately. People have started to read the manga and realize what her character actually is.
Editorial staff misjudged Kubo's plans. After giving him space for another story arc, they took that space away.
I personally felt that the Fullbring Arc was Kubo preparing for the home stretch, and yet here we are.
I just told you why. It is not the same. Hinata's love for Naruto made her more confident. She won her family's and cousin's respect. Orihime's love for Ichigo has caused her to constantly self doubt, fall into depressive moods for failing, and not value herself. At the beginning of the fullbringer arc we see a turnaround from this... before getting fucked over again. I'm not saying she has to win all of the battles, but she's rarely even given small victories.
tldr; Hinata learned to stop saying shit like "finally I'll be useful yay!" and go out and just be confident in herself.
>caused her to constantly self doubt, fall into depressive moods for failing, and not value herself.
That only happened during the HM arc, anon. She blocked Yhwach's attacks and healed Ichigo's sword, what else do you want her to do?
>but use her attack thingy
That'd go against her character. She needs to have killing intent, but that's not who she is.
>but I wish she'd learn new techniques.
She did during the Fullbring arc. She only used it once, but it still counts. She also has a lot of room to grow, she only has had two years with her powers. That's nothing compared to her Shinigami counterparts.
So did Orihime's love for Ichigo. Unlike Hinata though, she experienced quite a lot of mental trauma, it's no wonder she fell into depressive moods. Hinata experiences the same amount of self doubt, you just don't see it as much because she's out of focus. The Last is a good example of that, she couldn't even sit next to Naruto or give a gift to him without overthinking it.
the only reason i read this piece of shit is to get one final fucking panel with ichigo and rukia, just like in good old times, and look what i got. thanks kubo, hope you will get hemorrhoids.
You do know that this is a well documented thing that has happened, right? If you weren't a newfriend you'd know.
>reading bleach for an irrelevant side character
It was never going to work out for you.
Ichigo literally pops up the next panel and then the chapter ends 2 pages later. There's not time for Ichigo to react to Aizen and in typical Bleach fashion it wouldn't happen til next chapter anyway.
Since even Jump's former chef editor doesn't know how Kubo will end things in less than ten weeks, it's possible that Kubo himself decided to end Bleach with volume 74.
Maybe he really wants to do the rest in a sequel.
There is a way. But who knows if Kubo will even think of this. Uryuu's silver arrow will make Yhwach lose his powers and control of the Soul King he absorbed. The Soul King will consume Yhwach and then take over Ichigo as his new body. Turns out everything was a plan to get him on the top again. Urahara, Isshin, Ryuken and Squad Zero were all working together under the Soul King. But since the Shinigami are the enemies of the Soul King, he will be the new antagonist in a sequel.
post best girls
Actually it's almost guaranteed to be more than five chapters. That comment was from a podcast that came out a few days ago. If Bleach had less than five weeks, he would have said that instead of ten. It's also unlikely that Bleach will end before it's anniversary.
She needs some happiness.
Just realized that Hitsugaya is now near identical with his Zan spirit.
If only Kubo introduced some logic on why some have themselves as their Zan spirit, and others have lolis and milfs.
Yea. I'm sorry I never get to see hxh end though but you can't win them all. Though Togashi is getting up there in years so I'm wondering how long it was gonna take. Glad I get to see bleach end at least and the funny parts of the chrollo vs hisoka threads.
Crack ship with nel but that's impossible now.
Well, I hope Bleach ends in a way that satisfies you, anon. Who knows, maybe Togashi will find out that Dragon Quest is actually boring and comes back soon. I know he won't finish, but at least you can funpost with us in the HxH threads.
The volume could anywhere between 13 to 16 chapters. Naruto also had one with 13 chapters once. 15 would be symbolic since Ichigo is written with 15 and 16 would mean Bleach has 690 chapters, which is a round number.
Hold on there, anon. I don't have any IchiNel, but here's NelHime
>i lack basic empathy
I'll never not laugh at Momo. Such a poor girl.
godspeed anon. At least you aren't on the Berserk / ASOIAF endless ride...
I hope you'll be able to leave /a/ on your own accord, anon. Until then, try to show at least a bit of empathy to people. It'll do you good, I promise.
It's a shame that she never got to see his Bankai.
The irony is that you're a stupid fuck and new, and the whole point of /a/, let alone anonymous culture, is to separate yourself from your personal identity. There is no "empathy" because you are not a person here.
The one who loves Orihime the most is me.
More than anyone.
I think he's boring, but the artist only draws Orihime with him, sadly.
Does anyone know where this is from?
Not positive but I expect by the end Ichigo will fuse with his zanpaktou like Aizen has for the Kubo twist.
Zanpaktou are really just tools that serve as an extension of the soul. Given that Aizen could distort Yhwach's sense of time by his presence then he's channeling his zanpaktou powers through himself without an actual sword (didn't he also make Shunsui hallucinate that he was unchained?). Aizen was probably right at the end of Deicide about fusing/evolving to no longer need a zanpaktou.
Which makes me wonder if FGT is a similar thing. If the next step if channeling/becoming your zanpaktou power, Ichigo briefly become Getuga Tensho makes some sense.
They do look a little alike, but whatever.
>Ichigo litearlly nothing but jobbed at every given opportunity during the entire arc
I like Ulqihime more because they contrast each other so well. And I like males who are in denial.
People can like many things you know. He just doesn't get as much attention for obvious reasons.
There's still a chance for thaaaat
> crying on the sidelines, contemplating how useless they are
That's Pink Shit though.
Hinata stepped up to the plate against Pein (yes she was btfo but at least she did something).
B-but she stopped the rain!
>She needs to have killing intent, but that's not who she is
This is why i dislike Hime, it makes her so... shallow I guess? I mean after seeing literal monsters BTFO your friends and close to killing them, you seriously can't defend them because it's "not in your nature"? After everything she's seen? It's just weak and lame, shallow form of "pure" that compromises something that could be real character.
>telling her to drop the donut
This is bullying.
> yfw you won't know how Detective Conan ends either
>at least she did something
It's been a while since I read Naruto, but I think she was helping out the civilians and only started crying when Pein wrecked everything, so that's something. Hinata is the love interest, so what she did for Naruto is supposed to be special.
Ulquihime is muh OTP. I love the idea of Orihime genkiness contrasting with his autistic and unimpressed behavior. I'm still kinda upset that there's absolutely no chance of happening and I honestly don't find the appeal in Orihime with Ishida or Ichigo.
Ishida should die a virgin for being a nerd and Ichigo deserves a happy life with his ghost waifu.
My other crack pairing is Orihime whith Shunsui because I also like the idea of old experienced pervs with qt genki girls
Wait so with Shunsui's bankai, the Zanpakto spirits designs are canon?
>Ishida should die a virgin for being a nerd
Ishida is best boi
theyve always been canon they just havent been shown but it doesnt mean they havent been mentioned. hell early ss arc yumichika talked about his shikais personality and so did renji. maybe more but thats just off the top of my head.
>Renji deserves a happy life with his ghost waifu
Yes, because Renji is the most pathetic man in Bleach, not Cuckosaki and his Chad.
Probably because Kubo got told to wrap Bleach up because of how horrible it does on sales. More than likely he was told numerous times behind the scenes to speed things up and end it, but of course, he kept dragging the thing out. If this weren't a series like Bleach that had the whole "Big Three" reputation it probably wouldn't even have been allowed to get out this long. But even letting it continue because of that is a stretch, so they probably just gave him a straight deadline and told him it was over whether he actually finished it or not
>Source: My ass
Ichigo is pathetic right now, but what it hurts the most is the fact that back in the day he used to be the best shounen protag without contest. He got progressively worse after the vaizard arc and right now he's pretty much generic mc #84.
I still like him because of nostalgia though. Kinda.
>Shitposting ruining yet another thread
What a surprise.
Ichigo saved Rukia (Aizen had to use a method which didn't kill her), contrary to Renji who hurt her, those who would rescue her, and almost got her killed.
I'm fine with any ending or pairing other than RenRuki. He's just such a maggot and Rukia is a goddess.
Oh come on now. We're discussing a multitude of things here. There's no need to be upset.
Zutara is the IchiRuki of Bleach. No romantic attraction from either side, only delusions
>Dude, she took a mortal blow for a random old fart, that was pretty cool to me
Really? Sounds absolutely retarded to me, why sacrifice your life for somebody who will be dead in 5-10 yrs of natural causes anyways?
>getting friendzoned and cucked
>He has no excuse
his name is literally "romance understudy" he has every excuse, it's his primary function
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure has 8 protagonists better than him right off the bat. Kid Goku was far better than Kurosaki. Yugi was a much better developed character than Kurosaki. That's 10 right off the top of my head.
It's been a while, but didn't Katara and Zuko bonded after being trapped in a cave or something? If I'm not mistaken there's some episodes after that focusing on their relationship. Aang was even jealous at a point.
Aang was never jealous, barring a glare in the cave incident. Zutara was mostly a crack ship but Bryke started deliberately teasing it in the 3rd book; if they were a bit more flexible about their OTP and if they sold out a little harder, they could have flipped and made Zutara happen. Keep in mind that they did make Korrasami canon.
Ichigo the Bloodedge If only his sisters had massive complexes towards him
Edward was a pretty good shounen mc but was easily obfuscated by motherfucking Mustang
Also, Kenshin is probably my favorite shounen mc regardless of being a moralfag. Also, I'm gonna agree that Ichigo was really cool until the end of SS arc and his characterization went to the dumpster.
Remember when Ichigo learned the truth about his heritage and fully mastered his powers and then never did anything of significance for two years until Yhwach toyed with him and wrecked him anyway?
Sakura was pretty much involved in most arcs. She's supposed to be a protagonist, especially given all that apparent Tsunade training. You'd think she'd fall into a fight somewhere but nope.
She tried to get involved but always failed.
>Sasuke and Sai arc
>knocked unconscious by Kabuto's flying butt, has to be saved
>tries to punch Sasuke, he nearly kills her, Yamato jumps in
Then virtually nothing.
Sakura had the best ability of the main cast imo. There's so much shit you can do with super strength, SO MUCH SHIT that I'm still bitter that even with Tsunade Kishimoto didn't even try to make they look good because only eye hax matter in that shit universe. Holy shit I hate that hack. Maybe even more than I hate Kubo right now.
>You'd think she'd fall into a fight somewhere
This is Kishimoto's work we're talking about here, let's not get wild. Women barely do anything in this manga. I'm still mad at how he shafted Tsunade in the Pein arc. Not to mention him never addressing Hinata being a heiress of the strongest clan. Fuck, he never even promoted her from a chuunin.
Kubo ships it bitch
Maybe you should stop looking through your hetero lens
ever since i was a kid i'd always idolize rukia and try to be like her, id even put up her pics as my dp on msn/ign boards and make sure people knew she was my favorite character
if she doesn't end up with the manga's protagonist all of that will be for nothing
don't play with my fucking emotions anon-kun
Spotted the retarded newfag who can't even figure out how to use greentext. And no, shippers as a whole are cancer. You can't appreciate the series or the relationships in it.
Orihime is too good for Ichigo. I only like IchiHime cause it'd make her happy
He thinks you're a shipper, therefore making him a shipper. Do you really think someone like that is able to answer you properly? He's the type of person that is making these threads awful. He probably hasn't discussed actual Bleach content in weeks.
>Ichigo couldn't beat Ulquiorra, went full Hollow crazy, won and regained humanity via sheer luck
>Broken afterwards, couldn't do anything to Aizen even with entire Gotei 13 backing him up
>Needs training arc and god power-up to win
>Falls into villains' plot, ends up with his new powers stolen by them, completely broken
>Saved by Shinigami conveniently giving him new powers
>Fights Yhwach over and over, always loses
>Will get some literal last minute power up to win
He wasn't like this in the Soul Society arc. He never gave up no matter how badly he was losing.
What have you done recently to show your love, anon?
Heh, you know, that's probably exactly what it is.
Not typing correctly, not being able to understand social cues, not being able to answer people, and not being about hold discussion makes you look like something much worse than a nerd, an autistic retard.
Oh, I hate censoring more than anyone, it's just sometimes you need to make sacrifices in order to preserve the quality of the thread. We've been comfy today, I'd like to keep it that way.
Where were you yesterday? I wanted to ask you, do you think Orihime and Rukia will rejoin the fight? Benching them now of all times is something a stupid, lazy author who can't handle his cast would do, so it's possible. But if Kurosaki and Renji really are just Aizen's illusions, it's possible that they could be on their way.
When Ichigo lost his sword against Yhwach, he should've gotten back up and kept fighting. It would've shown how much he's changed if, even weaponless, he refused to sit back and whimper. He should've picked renji up out of his despair.
nigger fuck that shit. AIZEN IS OFF THE CHAIR. this is pretty much the majorest shit that's happened in a while.
the problem is my kubo detector is hitting high levels of kubo and i feel aizen is gonna job to watch.
I was working. Usually I can post on /a/ during work, but not always.
Anyways, it all depends on how many chapters we have left. If it's three or four, we probably won't see them until the last/epilogue chapter. However, if there are eight or nine chapters left, I could totally seeing them help contribute. Orihime's powers are extremely useful and Kubo seems to be working them into the plot. Rukia hasn't really had her time to shine, so Kubo could also fit her in somewhere. I'm hoping the latter happens and we see Rukia and Orihime talk as they walk towards the fight, we haven't seen them talk privately in years.
Here's what I think Aizen will do: give his power to Ichigo. In their fight Ichigo felt like he finally was able to understand Aizen's heart, and Aizen's entire character has been about his inability to connect with others due to his immense strength. By giving his strength to Ichigo Aizen will have finally been able to bond with someone while also punishing them. Earlier in the arc Shunsui implied if Ichigo became too powerful he wouldn't be able to return to the Human World. Aizen will make Ichigo so strong he won't even be able to live in Soul Society, he'll be forced to become the new Soul King and live a life of solitude. Meanwhiole Aizen is pardoned for saving Soul Society and newly weakened, able to connect with others. All according to plan.
I really wish with all my heart that Aizen will not job, Kubo already ruined Ichigo with his constant "I give up", no need to ruin Aizen as well.
The manga is already ending, let it end in a good note at least for Aizen.
He got so much backing him up, though. A demon inside of him ready to rescue his reckless ass, prophecy bullshit, jesus powers that convince the likes of Pein that they're wrong
I was about to say I wish, but then I realized that I wouldn't want to be an artist. I just love her work, anon.
That editor saying 'less than 10 chapters' makes me think the final volume will probably have 15 chapters for poetry points. In that case, there would be 7 chapters left, which should be enough time for them to do something.
>tfw bleach has reached such high kubo levels that it's ending literally kills people irl.
someone check those ancient prophecies and see if there's a link to bleach the apocalypse might just be sneaking in on us.
The Apollo OVA was actually a continuation of it, and it showed them fine.
But of course, it ended with Seiya scratching Apollo's cheeks and fucking nothing happening to finishing it afterwards.
Kubo loves his poetry. I think it all depends on who Kubo brings to the final fight. Is Urahara going to show back up? Will we see the Monk? Squad Zero?
Whatever the case, I just hope Orihime stays safe.
>mfw Bleach ends with Yhwach, Aizen and Ichigo using their final attack on each other leaving an open end
>Months later Aizen, Urahara, Isshin and Ryuken Gaidens drop
>Epilogue literally never
The Zero Squad are as relevant as the first arc's school friends now, but I wouldn't be surprised if Urahara pops up at the very last instant like he did in the Deicide arc. However, I'm sure Orihime will turn out safe now. The only ones who will die are Yhwach and possibly Aizen.
I've always thought this, even before I started watching Bleach and saw the previews on Adult Swim all those years ago I thought she was his sister.
"My name is Ichigo Kurdosaki. I'm 15 years old"
"My name is Rukia. I'm a soul reaper."
Shireker" Time to eat..YOUR SOUL!"
"We stand in awe before that which cannot be scene"
Why'd they have parrot eater's line while showing Ichigo fighting with hollow sora?
Since Orihime's seiyuu is trash, who would do a better job voicing her?
I can't think of anyone fitting for her.
It all comes down to not trusting Kubo. He likes to give Orihime positive development / momentary happiness and then take it away.
There isn't time for that now, he'll have to be straight with the ending, and while most arc endings in bleach have been bittersweet, she's usually been in a pretty good place at the ends.
/tv/. They've been trying to force a new meme to replace Baneposting.
this meme isn't that old. /a/nons who never leave /a/, bless them, wouldn't know that it's Dumbledore trolling Slytherin.
6 bullets for Slytherin.
Yes, yes, well done Ichigo, well done.
I'm surprised you have so much faith in Kubo. It's impressive.
>People don't get that the Soul King will defeat Yhwach
It will be like a combination of Shaman King and Full Metal Alchemist. At some point Ichigo, Ishida and Aizen will do so much damage that the Soul King inside Yhwach awakens agains and trys to escape. So Yhwach will technically have to fight two fights against four enemies. In the end they defeat him, but after some smalltalk he'll pass away peacefully while reconstructing SS. He will also revive every dead Vice Captain and higher. Afterwards
I don't have any faith in him as a writer. But while I was living in terror for the weeks of her and Kurosaki fighting Yhwach, I've moved beyond that now. If she didn't die then, she won't die now. And if Orihime survives, then I'm sure Kubo will give her a happy ending, because he's put so much care into her character.
And now I am going food shopping.
No I am being serious. I'm not solving some mysterious riddle, if he wants people to come to his stream he should be clear and concise. State where the stream is and not be a faggot.
Actually I lied. All you need is a .com and that link works just fine. It's okay, the stream anon had to leave after a while anyway. We can have Bleach discussions again soon enough.
People report links all the time like the faggots they are. I guess that anon didn't want to get banned.
I guess you have a point. I just want her to be happy.
Have fun food shopping, make sure to get something for everyone.
Then make a fucking throw away account, why be a little bitch and complain about something but not take steps to avoid it. The whole premise was bullshit. The guy wanted to complain no one would come, then literally disregards giving people the link.
You know there are alternatives to radio/chemo bullshit MDs do? Hemp oil, anti mycosis treatment, extmely high doses of vit C and D. If you want to live longer to read HxH you might as well try.
You should have done that long ago, old man.
The mods here don't like it, anon. You have a point, there are people that don't know how to put .com after certain words. You should make it as easy as possible for people to come to your stream, it shouldn't be a mystery.
Not a one dimensional retard like goku and luffy.
Ichigo belongs in a seinen/shoujo series.
Kubo wrote her horribly. It's make no fucking sense that she could defend Tatsuki at the beginning of the series with no problem, further on she regressed and wants to be saved.
I like Ichiruki because it would make Rukia happy.
