yama's

criminal how it was "le stolen" then never even utilized though, fucking kubo

out of all the bankai (besides yoruichi'e psuedo bankai cat girl form and ichibei's) it felt like there was a connection behind it that linked to what was suppuse to he the purpose of an hell realm.

i'm thinking of it like the soul king was, in kubo's makeshift rendition, the christian god of bleach while bach was his son(jesus) and the shinigami were like fallen angels that sealed him and torn apart his body, though that adds a bit of greek mythos to it(the olympians sealing up kronos) with weapons crafted by the crafter among them(the 0 squad captain) it's sort of hard to explain unless you know the stories yourself but i feel like bleach is a combination of these things, though purposely vague

I'm actually really furious. He's the ultimate jobber, and when Urahara said that Hollows are poison to Quincies, I thought it was finally time for my boy and the Vizards to shine. Boy was I wrong, not only did Kubo not delve deeper into the Quincy/Hollow relationship, the Vizards did not even get a chance to use their masks and hollow powers. Shinji deserved to at least take down one of the top tier Sternritters, FUCK KUBO.

the only exception here being yamamoto, which could also somewhat be attributed to his own fault of not letting his arm be healed.

>>145331977
The only connection that's certain is that they're homophones, which would be fucking silly. But maybe the Bankai lets her do creepy biological-warfare type shit related to the creature the Shikai summons? It wouldn't be any sillier than Ashisogi Jizo's only real connection being poison, just in reverse.

The precise mechanism could be damn near anything.

>>145334099
Kensei and Rose were 100% dead. The only way they could possibly be alive again is Orihime related bullshit, which is the single worst thing about her as a character.

Once she became the healbot most fights lost any sense of consequence.

Bleach's adaption had alot of problems but the voice effects for hollows, reitsu visual effects, and soundtrack were all fucking great and made it worth it.

I'm guessing her Bankai is the reverse of her Shikai. You go into the belly of her Shikai and it heals you, but the bankai is a corrosive acid.

Am I crazy for thinking Vizards > Captains? The only (original)captains that outmach them would be Byakuya because plot, Kenpachi, Shunsui, and Yamamoto.

Byakuya's bankai will always be there best and the most beautiful to me and to everyone on the planet.

>it's just an Aizen poison
>3 or 5 km long
>shrinks and grows at 500 times the speed of sound

Try 13km speedreader kun. Even if that was a lie, anything over a km is broken as hell. Also 500 times the speed of sound, do you know how fucking ridiculous that is? If you did you'd know that it being even 400 times or 5 times would be amazingly broken if for nothing else the kinetic energy of it. Kinetic energy is 1/2m(v^2). Even at just 100 times the speed of sound (34,000 m/s), the sword extending is at least 160 times more kinetic energy than a .50BMG round shot out of a Barrett M82 (853 m/s muzzle velocity), and that's only assuming the bullet's 42g mass isn't less than the mass than the part of the sword hitting you, which it doesn't. It also effectively instantaneously accelerates to that speed, so you can only imagine what it'd do at point blank..

But your problem is that the Bankai can leave a poison that is strong enough to disintegrate a transcendent being? Not only can it wreck whatever it hits, but it's almost guaranteed to kill them if it hits center of mass, and he's got the control to make that shard of poison happen at the center of your body in a slash.

He for all intensive purposes was strong enough to kill Aizen if he didn't have the Hyougoku at that level, and no one else was at the time.

Then again, we're on /a/ and you probably will try to call bullshit on a simple equation for kinetic energy which is basic midlle school,
physics knowledge.

And before you ask: It only took me 10 minutes to do this all while eating a burger. Murican education for the win. Suck it third world swine

>A fucking missile for a stealth specialist that also sucked
She was matched against someone who could AGE MAGIC for starters, and the missile is a logical Two Hit Kill to One Hit Kill progression. The wasp theme is continued, and I think Western audiences have always overemphasized the "Stealth" aspect when that was always more of a figurative translation than a literal one. The characters actually mean something more like "Secret Maneuvers". They do assassinations and policework in a secretive manner, not necessarily in a stealthy one.

Soi Fon's Bankai works pretty well for me, but your proverbial mileage may vary.

There are multiple libling characters, implying the same parents, but the only people we know of with kids are:

-Isshin, who fucked a human.
-Iba's mom, who we never see, but it was stated she was a captain.

Also, biological siblings implying parents

-Omaeda and his sister
-Yoruichi and Yushiro
-Ganju and Kuukaku

Oh, shit, I forgot, Byakuya has a father, too.

They can fuck, they can have babies.
Shinigami, or Soul Society residents in general, are not exclusively dead people, but also newborn souls (that's how you get Royal Houses etc.).

Same goes for Living World people - some of them are reincarnated souls from Soul Society, not always brand new, freshly made souls.

It's all a cycle.

Vizards were Shinigami first and foremost. Arrancars are hollows. It would be contradictory for their sworn enemies to become part of them. I'm not actually against the idea but the Gotei is too far up their own ass to allow something like this.

Well even then, there's not any incentive to working with SS.

From what's seen, most of them just want to fight, in which they can do so in Hueco Mundo themselves.

Also, isn't the Gotei 13 main role is to protect/combat hollows? Quincies are just a unique enemy that are also theirs, but otherwise the arrancars don't have a reason to kill other hollows(and if they do/want, they can do so in Hueco Mundo as I said).

They ARE part-shinigami, same as vizards are part-shinigami, part something else. In the grand scheme what the fuck does it matter so long as they do their job?

To the Central 46 and most "normal" shinigami though, it'd be absolutely not okay.

Not, they are in no capacity anything else than Hollows.

Arrancar are just "awakened" Hollows. They just mimic Shinigami (or rather Shinigami mimicked Arrancars by creating Zanpaktou).

Vaizards were forcibly merged with Hollow aspect.

If you think about it, Gin's bankai is really one of a kind in the Bleach universe. As far as I know, every bankai is a logical evolution from their shikai, except for Gin which goes from a sword that extends to being poison-based. Is there no correlation or am I missing something?

Haschwalth's damage cap was much higher than Uryuu's and he can double the amount first. Haschwalth was about to kill Uryuu, when Yhwach struck him.

That depends what Yhwach means by "see", if it's seeing with his actual eyes or thinking. Zaraki was still capable of thinking while under the effect of Tousen's bankai. It's probably the latter since Yhwach mistook an actual vision for a dream. Then again, since his eyes do that weird thing maybe privating him of his sight works nonetheless.

His powers came from a poorly developed universe that allowed for more freedom. Like how in one of the One Piece prototype chapters, there's just a dude who is a magic user.

Ditto with the two kids at the store. I don't think we ever got stories on them or where their powers come from.

People like to shit on Chad a lot, but at that point he was VC level. By Hueco Mundo, he was around Captain level, and by the Quincy arc he was even stronger.
Chad is strong, it's just that he keeps jobbing against really strong opponents or not getting on-screen fights. I'd put him above Ikkaku and most VCs.

Bankai Special Ability: While the power of the true Tensa Zangetsu is currently unknown, a Soul King-empowered Yhwach considered it dangerous enough to necessitate immediately breaking Ichigo's Bankai following its activation during their battle.[595]

>>145347633
And Amagai.
>>
>>145341730
Don't worry, IchiHime and RenRuki were already confirmed. The last two chapters are an alternate future that doesn't count. Kubo called it "A Perfect Ending" and he made it clear through Mayuri that "Perfect is not GoOD".
>>
>>145347856
Amagai is good ingame, but he's a shit character even for fillers.

Ashido is best fillerman
>>
>>145341650
>Theorically yes, but he has to stay actually alive for it to work. Pretty sure Yamamoto would simply roast him to death before he even gets the chance to use it for instance.

Not likely. Fake Yhwach lived long enough to apologize for dying. Ishida should have a higher power level than him and would transfer the damage back, killing Yamamoto.

Kubo probably added the shield at the last minute. Before he ran out of time, Haschwalth and Ishida probably would have had a longer battle, and Haschwalth's Balance might have been limited to shifting the fortunes of the battle instead of completely reflecting all damage done to himself.

What?

Even with an ability as OP as the Antithesis, you still need to be conscious enough to willingly activate it. If you die instantly, I don't see a way of getting back from that. Yhwach is somewhat excused since he can change the future. He could have rewrote it just as he knew he was about to kick the bucket.
>>
>>145343104

Not the high point, but definitely the last good point before it got irredeemably bad. The rest of the Arrancar arc was terrible.

They are adding the rest of fake karakura characters. 5 star Shunsui, Ukitake and Toshiro coming soon (already in jp).

Better opening.
>>
>>145348454
1- Ishida is immune to Auswahlen, and I think Haschwalth said he couldn't see Ishida clearly with the Almighty

2- The arrow cancels Ywatch's powers. Therefore, he can NEVER see himself getting arrow'd, becuase there is no instance of an event where he's both getting arrow'd and being able to use the Almighty. It's a radar jammer.
>>
>>145348490
Karin became bitter, but stayed relatively normal since she is a mature and well-adjusted girl. Yuzu on the other hand went of the deep end and became a Yandere obsessed with getting her brother back.
>>
>>145348661
It was implied to have been deactivated at that point. Not saying it was 100% sure, but even I have my doubts about Aizen still controlling it when he had just been swallowed whole by Ywhach's black hole of doom.
>>
>>145348696
Wasn't that because he stalked Uryuu? He had to get the evidence from somewhere.
>>
>>145348809
KS is never not active; just saying it's plausible.

Also Uryu's shrift fucks with causality, it's conceivable he could land the arrow without Yhwach being able to dodge it.

Most of the Bankais seen this arc are so boring because they sword barely changes and are not as big or flashy as they were, and instead focus on overpowered unavoidable insta-win abilities.
>>
>>145348782
Those seem to be the most plausible theories on it so far. There's also the possibility that this was the future that Haschwalth showed to Yhwach, but he deliberately chose to ignore it due to thinking it was a dream.
>>
>>145349035

>Rose had a nice bankai though, too bad he was a retard and jobbed like a bitch

An unbelievably bad example of "explaining your ability allows the opponent to beat it". At least when Shinji did it, he only told Aizen the obvious parts and left out the front-to-back reversal that he was hoping to trick Aizen with. Another example of explaining the ability but leaving out the most important details was Gin with his Bankai.
>>
>>145348723
At that point Kubo still had a decent handling of the Arc. It was the same deal with the Arrancar Arc, he puts in place settings and characters that show promises, then goes balls to the walls as time passes by because he realizes he's a hack that can't make good use of all the things he established.
>>
>>145349248
>needing a dick

Literally gay
>>
I just realized that Yhwach fucked himself over by killing Haschwalth just before he was about to kill Uryuu.
>>
>>145349254
Once again, it wouldn't have been as big a deal if he'd have known about the regeneration ability. Permanent hearing loss would have at least given Kensei the edge against Mask even if Rose hadn't defeated him.
>>
>>145349319
Kubo had to make Yhwach lose somehow.
>>
>>145349296
Yeah. It fell apart when Ichigo finally returned to Seireitei to save Kenpachi but did fucking nothing and Yhwach counter-invaded the Royal Realm immediately.
>>
>>145349319
>I just realized that Yhwach fucked himself over by killing Haschwalth just before he was about to kill Uryuu.

Ryuuken might have shot Haschwalth anyway.
>>
>>145349319
He fucked himself all the same by letting Ichigo live when he could have killed him with a slap on the cheek. A shonen villain has to make stupid mistakes somewhere along the line.

When did Kibo find out that he's going to get axed?
>>
>>145353004
The thing is with characters like Nanao, Yachiru and Nemu, that they are so closely connected to their captains that developing them also developes the captains. I mean Nanao's flashback revealed more about Shunsui's past and the connection to the Bankai than about Nanao. And the god sword was a good idea. It could have been better introduced, but having a sword that disperses the powers of a god, when there is a god, whose powers and limbs were dispersed is logical. At least we can deduct how the Soul King ended up that way.
>>
>>145349928
Most likely stronger than any individuel among them.
Remember that Yama shat on Yhwach some 1000 years prior to the story or so.
The thing with the yourself showed us that Yama back then did not even use the directional powers of his Bankai.
Yhwach designed for a thousand years the damn medal thingy just to get rid of Ryuujin Jakka.
>>145348723
Still greatest pure Shinigami Bankai.
>>145349699
Well if the things implied about it are true, he would have a chance.
Remember that him staying in that form basically endangered their entire world just from the passiv side effects.
Rukia's Bankai if you think about would have similar side effects.
Her staying in a 0K form would mean that she basically becoems a heat void zone and the universe tries to assume an equilibrium of temprature.
So she permanently draw in the heat energy in her surroundings and slowly voiding the space of it.
This is seriously insane and dangerous.
In that regard her Bankai fits more the claim of an ice or better non heat or mlecular movement opposite towards Yama's than Hitsugaia whose seems to be more something of an ice/moisture weather manipulation thing.

He did. Right at the beginning. See to Kubo everyone deserves at least 1 flasback. After that they are developed and it's tme to develop anther tertiary character with a flashback.

But without the weapon itself they wouldn't have been able to do shit.

No.

Given Gigi's personality, it would be the other way round.
>>
>>145353761

Aizen's bankai was never revealed.
>>
>>145353769
Probably not. Either Yhwach didn't gave enough fucks to properly kill Giselle or Orihime did her healing magic. But I don't think we will find out what happened to the Quincy until a databook comes out. Or whether Harribel is still in the sex dungeon or if Nel managed to save those inside the Giftball or what happened to Kira vs Lille.
>>
>>145353822
True, but the weapon alone didn't win the fight, that's the entire point. If Nanao alone could defeat Lille with the asspull sword, I'd consider it bad writing, but clearly that was not the case. Hate on the Mirror Sword all you want (personally I thought it was good for lore purposes, at the very least) but Shunsui was pivotal in achieving that victory.

What if Aizen's bankai's capacity is hiding away unresolved plot points along with the bankai itself?

There wasn't a single flashback in bleach that was shit. The problems all came from the present storylines.

>>145353980
My problem with Nanao is that Kubo made her look so pathetic. She's a lieutenant and she shat herself after getting cut, saying how she didn't know getting cut would hurt so bad. I don't know if that was Kubo telling us that this was her first time participating in a battle, but if that is the case then she has no business being in that kind of position.
>>
>>145354168
Yamamoto's spiritual pressure alone mindbroke her back in Soul Society arc so.
>>
>>145354168
Gotei is based on feudal Japan and extremely out-dated. Of course there would be neopotism.
>>
>>145354221
Seeing as how even Shunsui and Ukitake kind of shat their pants as well, I wouldn't be suprised if that would have been with any VC.
>>
>Ishida vs Toshiro
>Chad vs Soi Fon with Yoruichi coming in half way
>Ganjo, Hanataro, and Orihime being chased around Soul Society by the Vice Captain's while simultaneously trying to fend them off and run away
All of these fights would've legitimately been better than the garbage we got this arc fuck Kubo

>>145354168
She couldn't bind with an Asauchi so her only option was Kidou, that much had been obvious for a while. That Nanao would even attempt to face an opponent even stronger than Shunsui is a testament to her bravery- if you can't comprehend that on your own, then character development is wasted on you.
>>
>>145354168
Keep in mind, Nanao was the only VC to not go to FKT or Hueco Mundo.
>>
>>145354168
She was more a secretary than anything and had it solely because of shunsui. And yeah, she probably never was in battle because she only had an asauchi before and no true zanpakuto that may have been her first ever real battle with someone much trying to kill her who already fucked up her Captain.

Besides, most VCs are trash anyway. Most of the time only a shikai is required to become one. The level between VC and Captain is just ridiculous.
>>
>>145354351
That's not the point, pay more attention and read my post again. I'm saying that the very fact she was terrified at the mere prospect of getting cut, and even commenting that she had no idea how bad a cut would hurt, speaks volumes of her inexperience in battle. She looked brave at the start, but after Barro's retaliation she became the most pitiful creature in the Gotei 13. She clearly didn't earn her rank.

Yeah no shit. Rukia didn't earn her initial place in the 13th division either, Soul Society was full of nepotism.
>>

So the upside to Love and Kensei being alive is that there's no way Urahara and Yoruichi are dead.

Technically she didn't, but she also could have been made a seated officer immediately and wasn't due to Byakuya's interference.

Nel was shown going to save them. There was never even the slightest chance that they would be dead.

She is a pure spellcaster, anon. Artillery cannons don't know the finer details of frontline combat.

I waited for Urahara's Bankai for what is probably years. I thought it was going to be something really over kill like his sword started to absorb the blood from the bodies of anyone within a certain radius or some ridiculous blood demon. I really was not expecting it to just be surgeon simulator.

Just realized that if the Yhwach theory is true then Rukia's happiest moment involves Renji being by her side and teasing her just like when they were kids. Ichigo isn't even in her happiest moment lmao.

Holy fuck, if by a miracle the anime does comes back, can this be the opening or any song from Hello Sleepwalkers? They're really fitting the more I think about it cause they do Noragami's (Bleach with thought put in it) openings too.
