Ichigo is way to weak and inconsistent to this point. To have a great villain you need somebody that pawns the good guys and the protagonist consistently for a decent amount of time like Aizen has...
December 29, 2009 06:45 AM
Bankai would be Byakuya's Senkei Senbonzakura Kageyoshi Stage. A thousand swords around ready to pierce you from every possible angle is pretty scary. Tousen's Bankai is also very intimidating...
December 28, 2009 05:34 AM
Yes, but Mr. Kurosaki is very special since he is the main character. Wouldn't a main character with a constant power level be kind of boring?
December 27, 2009 05:33 AM
A very good chapter. Shinji's shikai looks interesting, I would like to see it in a greater extent. Aizen perhaps finally got a hit on him. Ichigo is on the field. May be we will see a combined...
December 15, 2009 08:40 AM
I think that if SS represents heaven Kubo deliberately or non-deliberately portrayed an unconventional idea of heaven. One that has flaws similar to the real world - sickness, hunger, poverty. I find...
December 13, 2009 03:24 AM
Would does "Vice it" mean anyway?
December 11, 2009 11:08 AM
You could be right. However, I am very doubtful that Shinji's shikai will override Aizen's. I think he is just full of himself right now and is really under one of Aizen's illusions and will lose...
December 11, 2009 09:45 AM
If what you're saying turns out to be true wouldn't it be enough for Aizen to harakiri himself to kill Shinji?
December 10, 2009 05:40 PM
Gin is probably the most mysterious character in Bleach. He was introduced early yet we know almost nothing about him, the extent of his shikai, his bankai or his specific reasons for following...
December 10, 2009 05:30 PM
I agree that resurrection has a different mechanism and represents something different from bankai. Regarding shikai, the Arrancar have a plethora of differents skill in unreleased form and will...
December 10, 2009 04:57 PM
However, we have yet to see a confirmed high level hollow such as a Vasto Lorde ans an Arrancar. IMO that such an Arrancar will have bankai as well as resurrection.
December 09, 2009 05:05 PM
Only he referred to himself as the King of Hueco Mundo. So I can say I am the King of the Moon with equal legitimacy.
December 09, 2009 04:28 PM
I think that we havent seen strong Hollow such as Vasto Lorde class as Arrancars. Adjuchas, like probably all of the Espada were, without shinigamification probably around vice-captain level at best....
December 09, 2009 03:50 PM
Relax, man. I can see you are a big fan of Tousen. There is no point in replying to every comment that says he is weak. Yes, there are many reasons because of which people dislike him, so that is...
December 09, 2009 01:58 PM
It might be twisted. However, it is highly plausible and believable point of view. There are many examples in reality of the same phenomenon of distortion.
December 09, 2009 12:13 PM
It would make sense if the nearly perfect hybrid between hollow and shinigami as Ichigo and Tousen or a possible Vasto Lorde will have the most powerful techniques of both aspects - bankai and...
December 09, 2009 09:41 AM
Where is the evidence to back this statement? Yes, it is likely that the Royal Guard is equal or superior to the Gotei 13 but so far there is no evidence to conclude that.
On topic, if the last...
December 04, 2009 08:01 PM
Well, I think the main idea behind Tousen entering this fight and using a mask is for Aizen to test how perfected the hollowofication via the Hougyoku is. So, although Tousen could be called stupid...
December 02, 2009 07:38 AM
Now the bad guys are going to be more respected. It will only take Tousen and Gin to beat up half Gotei 13 to convince some people they are a serious opposition to the good guys. May be a good guy is...
December 01, 2009 06:15 PM
Still I`m pretty certain Aizen can beat Komamura without the aid of his Shikai or Bankai.
December 01, 2009 06:09 PM
That error in the equilibrium up to now is probably because we haven't seen Vasto Lorde Arrancar yet. They might have a better balance of shinigami and hollow skills that rivals that of the Vizards.
December 01, 2009 06:07 PM
Not true. He defeated Komamura in a blink of an eye with a 90 lvl Kido without incantation. If he had done the incantation, he would probably be dead.
November 29, 2009 01:34 PM
I think Aizen talked about this subject before, at the end of the SS arc he said that admiration is the furthest thing from understanding. Here -
November 28, 2009 02:49 PM
She told Ichigo what Aizen told her. Now, that is a very big assumption. He could have told the truth which in Bleach is common (How stupid is to state the mechanics of your abilites..) or he could...
November 28, 2009 02:41 PM
I agree with your arguments. However, I think if Gin has or will have a mask, that will somewhat shorten the gap of power between him and Shunsui.
November 28, 2009 02:39 PM
He was quick to confront Ukitake and Shunsui because he felt it as a personal betrayal and because he is aware of the full extent of their power and how their abilities work. This does not apply to...
November 27, 2009 07:35 AM
While what could have happened can be only speculated, Gin used the resources of his environment perfectly to control Toshiro's actions. I'm not saying its not unfair fighting but its still quite...
November 26, 2009 07:38 PM
Who knows after his release WW can drastically change and become a genius.
November 26, 2009 06:47 PM
Yes but WW is an idiot, an unreleased idiot at that. Although I like Kensei, I think he is going to be overpowered by WW even in bankai especially of WW releases.
November 26, 2009 02:54 AM
Well they did that stupid monster of her fraccion on the cover, so it would fair to have Tia on the cover as well. I feel bad about her though, such a mistreated character and a little backstory...
November 25, 2009 09:17 PM
None of the Espada are certain to be Vasto Lorde. It is certain nobody outside of the top four was. Aroniero is a Gillian, the other are most likely Adjuncas.
Read Arceus' post here. He...
November 25, 2009 09:09 PM
He outmaneuvered him, true. But he was outmaneuvered in turn. So, I wouldn't really say its a one-sided situation.
True. However, this wasn't really a full fight. It just put events in motion....
November 25, 2009 08:54 PM
Well, thats the problem. When your main characters are not among the strongest and you want good fights its not possible not to extend your cast. Besides none of them beside Ichigo have any...
November 25, 2009 08:14 PM
Yeah. Even though most of the Espada are out that still leaves at least around 30 characters. We only get 20 pages per week. Its impossible for the manga to be with a lot of characters, explore them...
November 25, 2009 08:10 PM
Gin's fight with Hitsugaya was a plot fight much like Ichigo's with Kenpachi or Byakuya. It shouldn't be really used as a barometer IMO.
November 25, 2009 04:29 PM
I agree I would like Yammy to be dead but do you really want Ichigo and Unohana to arrive at KT now? They will interrupt Aizen and Shinji's fight. Although, I think Aizen will make quick work of him...
November 25, 2009 02:27 PM
True. On the other hand, they might be not very relevant when the time comes for another filler though.
PS: And Ulquiorra didn't get any backstory at all. For one of the main antagonists in the...
November 25, 2009 01:46 PM
Very true. I think they could have just did background stories for the Espada filler instead of this one and put this one later.
November 25, 2009 11:52 AM
I think predicting this hypothetical battle is very hard.
Lets say every Shinigami has power = S + B + F
S being shikai, B being bankai and F being additional factors such as kido skill,...
November 25, 2009 11:22 AM
Good point. Bleach is a manga where the main character is actually less popular than a secondary character, Toshiro. Its certain Kubo won't kill him now, ever. Same thing about Grimmjow, he was in...
November 25, 2009 10:27 AM
Gin wants to be amused from what I have seen so far.
Quite an interesting chapter. We get an inside look on Aizen's philosophy as the main antagonist, so thats definitely good.
November 24, 2009 06:54 PM
His shikai sucks? A shikai that can kill anyone? I`m an Urahara fan but I still think he will have at least the utmost difficulties with Shunsui. Besides the fact that he was near touching Aizen 100...
November 24, 2009 06:13 PM
Like somebody said previously, Bleach should be read in volumes not chapters. Don't expect rapid development and you won't be disappointed.
If Tousen has a mask that doesn't automatically mean...
November 24, 2009 12:45 PM
First, all arrancars unreleased look humanoid in shape and size. Even Aronierro who is Gillian. I suggest you read Arceus' post which I linked carefully. He has summarised all available information...
November 24, 2009 12:31 PM
I think you are misinformed about Vasto Lordes.
Read Arceus' post here.
It will clear things up for you.
November 24, 2009 12:23 PM
I agree. Some of the Espada had a relatively good character development yet they were killed off pretty easily and early. I think Kubo was just procrastinating there. Grimmjow and Ulquiorra IMO got a...
November 24, 2009 12:17 PM
And they will stand by and wait while he does that?
On the spoiler, not a big surprise that Kubo gave the weakest antagonist a mask. Kubo will probably make some good guy look lame so people will...
November 24, 2009 07:18 AM
It would make sense that the two bodies are that of the Privaron Espada but i can't really see it as groundbreaking somehow. May be I'm wrong.
November 23, 2009 08:06 AM
Well, after all probably the goal was to draw suspicion to himself so Aizen can work on his plan and so on. In that scenario, even if the jail Gin Aizen can break him out later or just put another...
November 22, 2009 06:51 PM
I agree. I think, although there haven't been that many death besides all but two espadas (no captains yet, damn!) Ulquiorra got the best death. I think Kubo really thought it through and even though...
