Bleach lasted for 15 whole years so it wouldn't be surprising if he wanted to lay low from now on; he should definitely have anough money to live a comfortable life especially since he has no children.

Such a bummer we never saw his bankai.
Always loved his shikai.

Any headcannon theories on it?
>>
>>156243708
Shikai reverses the opponent's senses so that he perceives Shinji's actions as if they were reversed
The Bankai might actually reverse them so that he becomes impossible to counter (eg. Shinji strikes from the front, opponent counters, Bankai reverses the attack to Shinji actually strikes the opponent's back)
>>
>>156243815
Actually I think it would be something like Lancer's Noble Phantasm.

It reverses Cause and Effect.
So the effect first happens, then time and space bend to somehow create a cause.

So the effect is that the enemy will be pierced, meaning the they are pierced before Shinji even takes any action.
Then they see a rationalization of how it happened, even tho it's not real.

Would go with the Zanpakuto's name "Counter Strike".

>requiring a shit ton of mana
Gae Bolg is actually pretty cost efficient. You're thinking about the Anti-army function it has.
>>
>>156244039
"Counter Strike" isn't even a remotely approximate translation. The kanji are for "Reverse/Opposite/Inverse/Converse" and "Brush/Stroke/Pat/Caress/Comb." Besides that it's its own term, though that term's pretty literal anyhow.
>逆撫で(さかなで)

>>156243708
I thought it was reverse someone powering themselves up. Like. The more spiritual pressure charged up, You're actually weakening yourself


Basically. In order to power up, you have to power down. And in order to power down, you have to power up. It would have been the perfect way to counter Thor's ability since the more they killed him, the the weaker he would get instead of stronger On top of that, it would fit Shinji's theme while being powerful

>>
>>156246821
He is too relatively young to regret it. The other souls are still alive. They live for thousands of years anyway.

It's not until he is hundreds of thousands of years that it would finally kick in.

As long as there are things to do and people to see he will be fine. Also Urahara and mayuri will die eventually and he will be able to talk his way out/escape from prison

he is almost strong enough to do so now

>>156245774
Fun fact:
when Aizen talks about "Courage" being the special name people have for "marching forward in the face of Death" in the final chapter, he uses the specific word "勇気" which is written as "Courage/Brave/Hero"(勇) + "Spirit"(気). Personally I find the word play of calling it "Hero's Spirit" rather than just "Courage" notable, specifically because there are about a dozen different Japanese words that all more or less mean the same thing in practice, but with different etymology: 勇, 勇烈, 義勇, 勇力, 胆力, 胆気, 健気, 鋭気, 強心臓, 度胸, 剛胆, etc...

Kazui's name is written 一勇, as in "One Courage" or "One Hero." So when Aizen talks about "Courage" there's a wordplay at work where the scene segues from "Hero [Spirit]" to "[One] Hero." It also associates Kazui with death, which important to how he plays off Ichika.

It's also a play on how Ichigo and Isshin both have a name that starts with the Kanji for "One"(一): Ichigo "One Guard"(一護) and Isshin "One Heart"(一心)

If it wasn't obvious, Ichika's name is a play on Ichigo's, albeit not a very clever one. It's just written as "Strawberry Flower"(苺花); The kanji for 苺 being a homonym with 一護. So the first chapter's "Death & The Strawberry" is talking about Rukia being the shinigami and Ichigo the strawberry, respectively; but the final chapter, "Death & The Strawberry" is referring to Kazui the Courage to face death, and Ichika the strawberry in reverse of the original pair.

Pre-gears Luffy was quite creative with his without it being complete bullshit, especially vs Croc or Enel. Naruto also wasn't half bad with the clones. I don't know what degree of creativity you want.

Actually, from what I've seen Ichigo is quite special among battle shonen MC's for being absolutely dumb with his powers. They always have quite simple abilities, but at least up to some point in the story, they usually come up with creative ways to use them, and will use actual tactics in battle.

For Ichigo the only thing he actually came up with was not releasing GT in order to strengthen his attack. And when it comes to using tactics/analytical thinking, he actually thought during his battles four times: vs Renji (doing what Urahara told him to), Jackie (applying the trick from Renji's fight to himself), Gin (the best fight in this regard for him, he was actually observing his opponent and learning from it), and Juha (using his powers to activate his hollow).

It really doesn't compare to the rest of MCs. Like, at all.

That's actually a part of Ichigo's character.
He doesn't give a fuck about fighting, it's not his passion, so he doesn't really think about it too much.
It's just an instinct to survive.

Even in the earlier arcs, his Hollow would make fun of him for not using Zangetsu properly.
Remember when Hollow Ichigo used Zangetsu by spinning it and throwing it at Ichigo?
He says that something like that would never cross his mind.

Also, Getsuga isn't his technique, it's Hollow Ichigo's, he copied it.
Same with using Getusga at point blank while crossing swords, Hollow did that first.

>He doesn't give a fuck about fighting, it's not his passion
One of the point of Grimjaw's fight (first brought up during the Vizard training) was accepting that his hollow and actual enjoyment from a fight he represents are part of him.
>>
>>156248942
Ichigo mostly usually just overpowers his enemies in the fights he wins but against Yammy and Aizen he at least drove them away so he could have a fight away from his friends. But he used his speed to trick Byakuya and skills to beat Ikkaku and caught Aizen off guard after his fight with Yamamoto.

But if you're talking about Naruto, the stupidity of the villains is how his plans work.
>>
I'm still so fucking mad that we got foreshadowing for so much shit that never was shown. Those last 20-30 chapters retroactively ruined the entire arc.
>>
>>156249740
A part.
It doesn't define him, and it's not a passion.

Unlike Naruto, who lives to fight and Luffy who enjoys everything he does, Ichigo had to "learn" that he loves fighting.

But that was all bullshit to be honest.

Ichigo never once enjoyed himself in a fight.

Fighting was only a path that led to actual happiness for him.

That;s how I saw that arc, he needed to learn that even tho he didn't enjoy fighting (didn't like his hollow) he had to accept that it was the only way to achieve happiness (had to accept hollow as part of him to gain power).

I don't doubt that Kubo didn't put 5 minutes into thinking up an actual plot.
He says it himself.

But still, never underestimate the subconscious.
There is depth and meaning in everything we say and write, you start learning this as you start writing yourself.

Bleach has some pretty interesting and even philosophical ideas.
It questions a lot of things, especially society.

>Is there any reason to want a Kazui-centric novel aside of wanting a cute shota? I'm honestly asking.
I want confirmation on the current status of Yhwach's remains.
One of the following two happened when Kazui made contact with Yhwach.
1 Yhwach was absorbed and subdued, and Kazui is the host of his power.
2 Yhwach was completely and utterly destroyed, meaning Kazui has some sort of special power.
>>
>>156252887
>meaning Kazui has some sort of special power.
Of course he does, he's the child of the MC after all. Kazui is everything Ichigo is plus whatever Orihime is.
>>
>>156252879
Kubo never had formal education beyond High School.
He said he wanted to be an architect, not that he was one. His first serialized manga in Jump ran when he was 20 or so iirc. Before then he worked as a doujin artist making all ages saint seiya doujins, basically fanfiction in the same vein as Toyotaro and his DB doujins.
>>156253040
Him inheriting their natures is a given. But he won't inherit their unique abilities, like Orihime's rejection, and whatever the hell Ichigo's power was supposed to be.
>>
>>156253122
>But he won't inherit their unique abilities, like Orihime's rejection, and whatever the hell Ichigo's power was supposed to be.
He probably will though.
>>
>>156253196
Doubtful. Getsuga is a technique that any user of a getsu-type zanpaktou can use, so he'll get it without problems. Orihime's rejection on the other hand is an ability that borders on the divine and is integral to her character as someone who wanted to "reject" herself and her past.

>kubo probably wrote the scene between kazui and yhwach because he already knew the narita novel would expand more on it

it would make sense especially since he teased hisagi's bankai in 685. maybe the reason why kubo half-assed certain things was because the novels were already planned and he knew that he could certain details to them.
>>
>>156253345
>as someone who wanted to "reject" herself and her past.
Literally what? Orihime never wanted to reject her past. She's even able to talk calmly about it which surprised Riruka back in FB arc. If anything she regretted the fight with Sora, but she made her amends during the Hollow!Sora fight back in the beginning.

She didn't want to reject herself either, she just wanted to be physically stronger and stand on the battlefield with her nakama.
>>
>>156253356
That's for certain. The novel is already confirmed to explore the origins of certain things that were ignored in the manga. Hollows, Fullbringers, Quincies.
>>
>>156253491
Orihime rejected her old self. Hence "I reject".

Actually, you might have an insane point here.
Both Chad and Orihime's abilities don't align with Fullbring, nor Quincy, nor Soul Reaper.

The Hogyoku in Rukia might have had an effect on them.

The first thing I would do with Rukia would be asking her out on a date. I pick her up at Ichigo's house in my limousine and she gets in shyly. I tell her not to be shy, and she slowly begins to warm up to me. I kiss her hand gently and tell her we are going to Barcadia, a local fancy inlet that's too expensive for Ichigo and the rest of his poor friends. We have a nice dinner by the fireplace with the sounds of a piano playing next to us. I bought the whole place out. I make sure to order her lots of alcohol to get her a little more than tipsy and she starts telling me about how much of a pussy Renji is. After our main course I order desert for Rukia then ask for the checkbook. It's $4,9000 just for the two of us. But I don't care. I tip 200% because I have money,, and I suggest to Rukia that she comes back to my place to sleep over. She blushes and bashfully agrees. As my limo pulls up to the gate of my 5,000 square ft. villa Rukia can't even believe how much money I have. I tell my limo driver to fuck off and we walk inside.

>>156287966
That's when I grab her and cover her mouth with my hand which has chloroform in it. She's instantly passed out in my arms. I laugh to myself. Too easy. I drag her limp body inside and tape her mouth shut and hog tie her like the pig she is. Fucking slut. I murmur this to myself while kicking her side violently. I drag her into my custom torture chamber and that's when she begins to regain consciousness. Perfect timing. When she wakes shes restrained on the table and that's when I bring out my hammer and nails. She's only semi conscious and I think their is foam coming out of her mouth and some inaudible words. I place the nail over her middle finger joint, raise the hammer, and crush it. She lets out of a blood curdling scream. What a stupid fucking bitch. She scratch my custom mahogany table I ordered from Indonesia. I quickly take out my tapered Michelin knife that I ordered from the UK and it cuts through her finger like butter.
>>
>>156288033
I think she passes out from shock at the removal of her index finger but I don't care anyway. I raise her shirt up and look at her soft small tits. They are a pink color but suddenly I feel something close to remorse but I'm more concerned with how I'm going to rape her than anything. I take out my limited edition Averm pliers that I paid $300 for and tighten them around one of her long pink nipples. I pull as quickly as I can and it comes off very easily. Blood begins to ooze from the newly formed orifice on her breast and I store the nipple in a frozen container for dinner later. I look back to her and begin my dissection. To my dismay she starts to regain consciousness YET again and it pisses me off so much that I take the hammer and crush it against the side of her head in a fit of anger. I instantly start to regret that because it caves the side of her head in and I don't want her to die yet.
>>
>>156288079
Weird noises and a sound gurgling from her throat begins to bother me so I take my all purpose screwdriver and stick it in her stomach a couple times. It enters in and out like soft dough and there's little blood coming from her.

My eyes go lower and I see that she has pissed herself but this doesn't bother me very much so I remove her panties and take a good look at her cunt. It's cleanly shaved and looks pretty nice I think to myself. So I take my michelin knife and stick it up her cunt and violently flail it around. It cuts through her flesh easily enough and I stick my fist all the way inside of her with the knife and pry it up through her abdomen effectively disemboweling her. Her body starts to twitch especially her toes which fucking pisses me off so I begin to cut them off one by one. They are good to make a curry with anyway. I can't wait to see how she tastes. I lose control of myself and bite into one of the toes because I'm starving from all of this torture. I notice her guts begin falling out so I give them some help and rip them out.

Momo, please, it's been like forever since he stabbed you. Get over him already.

I think she's dead now so I flip her lifeless torso over and begin cutting into her ass like it's a fresh peach. I can't help myself and I bite into it and rip a fresh chunk out and eat it on the spot. I get up and put the knife against her neck, spinal column and wrench it so violently it immediately severs her head and it falls to the floor with a thud. I begin cutting off all her limbs and cut them into 5x5 chunks so I can fit them easily enough into the expensive designer duffel bags I bought last week. I'm going to ship her head to the kurosaki clinic and leave the rest of her body in front of Karakura High school. That will be perfect.

I store her guts and intestines inside the freezer and make sure I remove her brain and eyeballs for ingestion later and that's when I notice what I mess I made. In anger I take out my hardened cock and stuff it angrily in Rukia's dead eye socket, thrusting in and out getting blood and gore on my diamond like cock. My cock is so big that it stretches her socket out and I imagine myself murdering Rukia all over again. I cum inside of her head and I don't care if the feds find my DNA. I'll just pay them off anyway those stupid fuckers.

I toss her head in the bag and throw the chappy doll I forgot to give Rukia in with it. I call up my limo drivers and tell him that Rukia left angrily without telling me anything. I have blood and gore all over my body so I take a shower in my 40 square foot shower that's big enough to be a regular sized master bedroom. First I used a deep pore cleanser lotion for my face followed by a water activiated gel lotion. I then apply a facial mask while I piss in the toilet and begin my nightly workout.

That's when I hear the doorbell ring and I go to the door and hand the driver a wad of cash that I didn't bother to count but it satisfies him enough so he fucks off. I grab the duffel bags and put them in the trunk of the limo and the driver looks at my questioningly so I hand him some more money and tell him to keep his fucking mouth shut or I'll kill him and his family. He obeys and we set off.

We pull up to Ichigo's house and I set the duffel bag by his door and ring the doorbell. The door is answered by one of his little sisters. I think her name is Yuzu but I don't give a fuck and I think of numerous ways to dismember her body and torture her. She tells me her brother is out looking for Rukia and he is worried about her but I tell her it's okay and I ask her to give these bags to Ichigo. I walk off and leave her confused at the door and leave and go home.
>>
>>156288236

Instead of going home I go look in the trunk of my limo and see what I have to make mince meat out of that little Kurosaki girl. I always wanted to dissect little girls. Hmm. I have my limited edition tool kit set that I purchased from my trip to Italy last year. That will do nicely. I pay off my stupid limo driver yet again and go around back. I sneak in through the window and I can hear television sounds coming through the doorway. It sounds like... Don Kanonji... remind me to murder him later.

While he does his signature " BAHAAHAHA" Yuzu which I think is her name but it's unimportant anyway is too distracted to hear my creeping up from behind her. I pull out my duck tape and gagger and stick it down her throat immediately and tell her to shut the fuck up or i'll kill her whole entire piece of shit family. I stuff her throat full of shit and tape it shut and she's so small I can throw her over my shoulder like a weightless sack. I take her up to Ichigos room and throw her on the bed roughly and take out a couple ropes I had stored in my tool box. I spread her legs and arms out and shes squirming and wigling and it's pissing me the fuck off so I elbow her nose so hard it breaks and blood starts to squirt out of the gaping crevice in her face. I tie her limbs to each of the bed posts and bring out my favorite nailgun. Man I love this thing. It's a custom made replica of the nail gun from American Psycho that I had made for just over $2400. I always wanted to kill someone with this. I press it against her belly button and pull the trigger and she starts flailing wildy as I nail her to the bed. STOP SQUIRMING YOU FUCKING BITCH I yell so loud I think I woke up the neighbors but I'll kill them later too as I slap her again and again until her face is black and blue until I can hardly recognize her.
>>
>>156288284

She tries to spit out the gag but it's futile. I know just what I want to do with this slut. I drop my pants and stand over her. I've been holding this one in for a long time. I let out the wettest, nastiest shit all over her face. She's completely covered in my shit. What a wonderful fucking day this is. I grab my michelin knife from the toolbox and begin to cut through her limbs slowly and meticulously. She's flailing and weezing in pain and I'm so fucking tired of her staring at me with those eyes so I stick my fingers in her sockets and push them back to her skull. That will teach her.

I go back to my cutting and one by one her arm comes off, her leg, her arm again, and finally her last piece of shit leg. Now she's limbless and laying in the bed. She's dead though since she stopped moving some time ago. Probably from blood loss. I am interested in what her organs look like so I take my hatchet out I bought and crush her rib cage and sternum with it. I take my knife and cut through her flesh so easily and smoothly and soon enough I'm prying her open like I fucked Orihime last week. Nothing special I think to myself. I better leave before Ichigo or his dad get home. I begin to wonder to myself? Where is the other bitch of a sister? But I don't really care and I'm pretty tired from all of this senseless murdering already.
>>
>>156288333

I start for the door and that's when I see headlights coming through the window. OH FUCK I thought to myself. I bolt for the back door but it's too late. There he is staring at me dead in the eye. It's Ichigo. That piece of shit motherfucker. I hope he enjoys what he finds here. That's pay back for what he did to me that stupid monkey prick He looks at me dead in the eye

"Chad?" He says with a whimpering voice. Yeah, that's right. It's me. Chad. THE CHARACTER NOBODY REMEMBERS. THE GUY WHO APPARENTLY HAS NO HOME, NOTHING. I showed you you stupid fucking prick. I laugh maniacally while Ichigo falls to the floor in shock.

>>156290921
If you don't have anything you can quote, then what reason do you have to believe that she isn't a Fullbringer?

>Orihime's powers are channeled through an inanimate object with special emotional significance to her
Here's mine to believe she is.
>>
>>156290363
I remember someone saying Orihime had some kind of power that's seen before, and Fullbringers were well-documented before her powers were known.
>>
>>156291453
Not him, but she creates sentient avatars for her powers. No fullbringer has them. It would be weirder fullbringer than Yachiru's "shikai" was for shinigami.
>>
>>156292003
That sounds like something that's just part of her powers to me, not an entirely different type of ability. You're really overthinking it.
>>
>>156291673
You're describing the complete opposite: Mayuri had never seen powers like hers before and desired to study her, whereas he had little interest in Uryu because he had already studied Quincy.

>Fullbringers were well-documented before her powers were known
If Soul Society knew about Fullbring it would have been brought up before the Xcution arc. Aizen thought they were some manifestation of the Hougyoku; if SS knew about Fullbringers then so would Aizen.
>>
>>156292003
There's nothing stating that Fullbring can't be sentient; by every other standard her ability resembles a Fullbring.
>>
>>156289259

Never heard of keep your friends close, but your enemies closer? If it weren't for that, Uryuu would have been able to bomb the Wandenreich much earlier. And in the end it was more thanks to Haschwalth's vision that Yhwach lost.
>>
When Ichigo got to HM and Grimmjow brought Orihime to him to heal him, why didn't he take Orihime and run, instead he risks his and her life to fight Grimmjow on equal grounds?

He could have outran him in his bankai and mask on, even while carrying Ori.

That always bugged the shit out of me.
>>
>>156293765
How could he carry Nel and Orihime and outspeed? Plus, if he left Grimmjow alone, Grimmjow could have went and attacked his other friends. He needed to fight and defeat him right there and then.
>>
>>156292771
That's retarded. Why wouldn't Yhwach kill the ONLY counter to his ability in the world? He knew everything ahead of time, it's retarded to think that he would let Ishida live just because he wanted him close.
>>
>>156293928
That's literally what he tried to do with Rukia.

Plus, running back to Ishida and Renji would allow him to outnumber Grimmjow once he caught up.
>>
>>156294097
>That's literally what he tried to do with Rukia.
In what way?
>Plus, running back to Ishida and Renji would allow him to outnumber Grimmjow once he caught up.
He could sense that Ishida and Renj were fighting. All he knew for certain was that he could beat Grimmjow. He went for certainty.
>>
>>156294244
His original plan was to take Rukia off the Senkaimon and book it.
Byakuya stopped him.
>>
>>156294311
That's completely different. Different place, different time, and different writing style.
>>
>>156294002
Because he didn't know why Uryuu could overcome him. For all he knew, if he tried, he would die. It's much better to first observe and then make a descision. And once he absorbed the Soul King, he was so powerfull, that Uryuu didn't matter anymore. Yhwach couldn't know about the arrow and it was Ryuken who brought the arrow. And if Haschwalth had not send that vision, the arrow would have been wasted. There was not much Uryuu could have done without these and even then, he still needed Ichigo.
>>
>>156287273
Of course
>>
>>156293765
Grimmjaw brought it up himself. Ichigo, as much as he didn't want to admit it, actually wanted to fight. That's why at the end of the fight when he finally achieves balance between his hollow and shinigami sides he screams both the names of friends he wants to protect and enemies he wants to beat.
>>
>>156283746
Based off chapter 384's title "Can't Fear Your Own Sword" it seems.
>>
>>156296382
That's actually surprisingly clever. Way better title than Spirits Are Forever With You.

I really was disappointed that most of the crew beyond Hiyori and Shinji lost the fun hollow look and feel that made the whole mask thing interesting. Love's was the only one that really felt on point. Hacchi's came close with the neat Balinese demon queen thing it had going on, but having the colors on it in the anime ruined the whole bone mask aesthetic. Mashiro's was appropriate for her but I wish it'd had some kind of a mouth. Rose's phoenix mask was kind of neat clever play on his name but beyond that super awkward. Kensei and Risa's were straight up terrible though.
>>

2nd Lieutenant is still Oomaeda
3rd Lieutenant is still Kira
7th Lieutenant is Iemura
and Sentarou probably became Rukia's Lieutenant

I wonder who Lisa finally picked? She wanted Yumichika but he's still in the 11th. Maybe it's Hanatarou after all.

I'd say not. He probably just made the other captains believe he has one using his shikai.

Novellization of Kubo Tite's "BLEACH" by Narita Ryohgo "BLEACH Can not Fear Your Own World" was decided to be serialized from April 28 at Shonen Jump + and "BLEACH Free Series Application".

It is scheduled for 7 times in total, and it is updated every other Friday.

In the past Narita released the novelization "BLEACH Spirits Are Forever With You" of "BLEACH".

In "Can not Fear Your Own World", with Hisagi Shuuhei as the main character,

Assassination incident aimed at the four great noble families,

A mysterious shinigami that attacks the arrancar and quincy that survived at hollow world (Hueco Mundo)

A story centered on the riot, such as a rapidly growing mysterious religious organization within the human world, will be developed.

what for like the 3rd fucking time? There weren't even that fucking many of them. Aizen only made less than 100 of them and a good chunk of them were accounted for as nameless goons. And then Yhwach had Jail running around recruiting them, so if he didn't kill them for not joining, then the shinigami killed them when they raided SS as extra Soldat. There can't be that many left, let alone any good ones.

He is already calling the Quincy living in Hueco Mundo a prolonged execution. He's a real twat.

He's been a twat since the ending. He's just pissed over his pairings not happening and because Kubo didn't cater to every headcanon of his.

Hopefully this religious cult is somehow connected to a Soul King body part like Mimihagi.

ftfy
>>
>>156306361
I still want to know what the Soul King's real deal is. According to Yhwach, the Soul King hated the Shinigami, but soon grown compassionate towards them after spending a long time being imprisoned.

How would you react if The mysterious Shinigami is Hanataro's older brother, Seinosuke?

The Soul King still hates the Shinigami. First thing he did, once he baecame free, was to attack the Shinigami. Yhwach just theorized that Mimihagi is like that and given Mimihagi's reaction, it is probably not that simple.

Okay, so are the HM attacks connected with assassination attempts on nobles, or are we dealing with two major villains like in SAFWY? It would feel weird for one group to be doing both.

It might be wishful thinking, but since FBs are the focus and he has this trivia (guitar) connection with Hisagi Matsubara and Narita like to expand upon, it would be great to have Chad in the novel.

Kaguya was just a bad character, but her defeat at least made some sense.

I'm really excited to see how the human world is involved. Also, I wonder what time period this is set in. Is it right after Yhwach's defeat? 5 years? 10 years? Does the little cute kid exist yt?
>>
>>156315514
I mean, Yhwach has the ultimate hax, literally being able to control the future is kind of unbeatable. Even Aizen could only stall and make an opening for Ichigo.
>>
>>156315662
It should be 10 years at least. The events already seem huge and will likely escalate, so if it was less the peace comment from Hitsugaya would be contrdicted. And if no one knows about it than Hisagi fucked up s a journalist.

Such a shame how little importance Ichigo had during the final arc, all what happened to build him up and he only had that one short fight with Thunderthighs and Askin offscreen.
>>
>>156315676

Why didn't Aizen use his fucking Bankai? The fucking universe was on the line.
>>
>>156316105
It's the same reason that Tessai didn't come and help out in the fight.

I can't wait.

>And if no one knows about it than Hisagi fucked up s a journalist.
Could be possible that Hisagi didn't publish his findings and events.
>>
I've been reading some of the previous arcs and the hype Kubo can create is fucking unreal.
>>
>>156317749
And that would be an ultimate failure as a journalist. I wonder if Narita will reference SAFWY when C46 forbidden Hisagi to publish Kanonji's story.
>>
>>156317785
The atmosphere is great. Kubo should think about writing horor series.

Yhwach's powers depend on his physical senses, if you screw up his sight he won't be able to see and predict the future properly.
>>
>>156315052

Shuhei as the main character?

FUCKING YES SIGN ME UP FOR 10 SEASONS
>>
>>156318467

She and Grimmjow and Nel need to get their Double Secret Hollow Bankai like Ulq or there's no way they'll be relevant.
>>
>>156318648
Narita's not Kubo, the novel won't be a continuous stream of battles. In his previous novel he made both Kanonji and Ishida relevant even though the enemies were way beyond their reach (Kanonji even sorta won one battle though).

This reminds me, did we ever get more information about Vastro Lordes hollows? They got built up as this huge fucking thing, that ten of them united could destroy Soul Society, and yet only four of the Espada were ever confirmed to have Vastro Lordes before their Arrancar change, and the strongest one of that lot was not even close to a match for ONE of the elite level captains using only his Shikai.

Are their more? Are there ones out there stronger than Stark? What's the deal?
>>
>>156244835
Notice how Bankai got less impressive over time, like their massive size and design weren't their main appeal. Shunsui's was the worst, it didn't even change a little. By the end they weren't even about design, just ridiculously overpowered impossible to avoid or counter abilities.
>>
>>156292003
>Not him, but she creates sentient avatars for her powers. No fullbringer has them.
That's hardly a good argument for disqualifying her powers as Fullbring when every Fullbringer has vastly different abilities from making larger swords or becoming stronger to time manipulation and pocket dimension Garry's mod.
>>
>>156315450
Aizen putting him under the impression + cosmic karma involving a power that chances outcomes at the user's will. It was just too rushed.
>>
>>156317877
Hisagi can try and put it in the Bulletin, but as we learned from SAFWY the Central 46 can go and have things censored. They also somehow managed to get everyone who saw the Soul King's death shut up and go along with the fake story. Our world's despots would love to have SS' censorship ability.
>>
>>156320680
But as we learned from WDKALY, c46 has been reformed now, so maybe there will be little opposition from them?
>>
>>156321162
Nah.
>>
>>156321162
C46 has not been reformed. It has been disbanded. Only the loli still has authority. But she is lusting after zombies.
>>
so i have not kept up with anything bleach related since the manga ended. i heard theres some novels and stuff coming out. has anything or will anything ever explain what happened with aizen at the end?
howd they get him back in the chair? he has his eye and mouth unlocked in mugen. before, that was enough for aizen to somehow free himself and walk before shunsui, yet hes just staying there, bound by the tape.
what happened with the soul king? ywach by all means shouldve been the soul king at the point of his death, and he is indeed dead so why has the universe not exploded or whatever? i assumed they were going to put aizen up there after ywach inevitably died, but that did not happen.
whats the deal?
>>
>>156318928
To be fair, Starrk was half-assing almost the entire time during his fight with Shunsui.Why didn't he use Gran Rey Ceros?
>>
>>156318928
Starkk didn't have any gimmicks. Barragan was the strongest hollow, but Barragan had lower absolute reiatsu and was pissy at Aizen so #2 was probably solely to tick him off.
>>
>>156324467
The hell? C46 wasn't disbanded, half died during the Quincy invasion and a few gave up their seats after the war , so there's a couple of the original sages left in their positions (from the ones that were appointed after Aizen's c46 massacre), Kira's loli and Shunsui made changes to the old fashioned c46 introduced new laws thus reforming it.
>>
>>156325521
Not what I would call C46. That sounds more like a new institution was placed in its stead. Maybe they will call it C10 or something like that. But Central 46 itself doesn't exist anymore.
>>
I wasn't here when Bleach ended, what was the /a/ reaction like? Links to any archives?

It's a phoenix. His surname is literally Phoenix Bridge; His sword is Gold Shala, a tree and flower associated with karmic cycles and rebirth; and he has a song bird motif. Literally nothing even remotely points to plague doctor.
>>
>>156326717
You can't have C46 without 46 members.
>>
>>156326754
By that logic the C46 would have been disbanded after Aizen slaughtered them... except that didn't happen.

See where you went wrong yet?

But those were immediately filled by new ones. It took less than three months for that. Here even after three years, there has been no mention of any new members.

>Here even after three years, there has been no mention of any new members.

Again, where are you citing this from, WDKALY? This headcanon shit is getting ridiculous, either cite your shit or stop posting.
>>
>>156326989
In the novel there has been no mention that C46 has been refilled or that anyone except for the little girl has done anything.
>>
>>156327064
That doesn't prove your claim.

He lost on purpose, he's now in kazui and will kill ichigo's friends when they're the happiest.
>>
>>156326742
The form and appearance reminds of the mask of a plague doctor.
>>
>>156327102
Unless it had been stated that C46 has been refilled, the current state is, that even after three C46 has not been active.
>>
>>156327102
>>156327175
Unless you can prove that C46 is active of course.

It doesn't disqualify it, but that's enough to not be sure if it's exactly fullbring and for it tor require additional explanation. Shun Shun Rikka are zanpakutō-like sentient beings, it's more of a difference than between making someone stronger and making a big sword.
>>
>>156327330
It was a good ending/epilogue for the series, but a bad ending for the final arc. Thankfully the novels are redeeming that.

V1 Tensa Zangetsu: focuses reiatsu to boost speed and power, basically Blut Artere from Yhwach/OMZ, also black Getsugas.

V2 Tensa Zangetsu: massive amounts of raw power from both OMZ and White

He hasn't used twitter in months, and didn't promote the previous novel either. He was happy with the wedding novel though, and drew the cover/sketches so he's still involved in other ways.

>>
>>156327591
I really hope so. WDKALY gave us a total of 12 new sketches so if he does the same amount for this one, we will be able to see a bunch of missing different characters, and scenarios unless he decides to do full-ink illustrations like he did for Honey Dish Rhapsody because Hisagi's bankai will most likely be revealed, and he feels a sketch won't do it justice. If we do get full-ink instead then we should expect around 4 or 5 illustrations in total since he drew only 4 for HDR.
