lowest quality raw ever?
The cover is a bit strange for bleach
I think we wont see ichigo training anymore because there is nothing new to expect, nor ishida, chad armor will not be shown before the first fight so unless we see some Orihime training (i doubt so) we are going for a soul society chapter or arancar and a timeskip
I enjoyed this chapter a lot. I was very, very pleased to see that Orihime won't be another princess needing rescue, that her powers were restored, and that she may be training together with Rukia - which would make for a very good relationship to watch in later chapters.
Orihime has taken an even longer time than Sakura from Naruto to come into her own, which is one of the most disappointing parts of the series for me personally as I've always thought her powers were among the most unique and coolest I've seen so far in comics. Hopefully this is something that'll finally be fixed in this storyline.
It seems as though the plot is now concentrating on trying to bring all of Ichigo's friends to a respectable level of power as well, which I don't mind. One of the strengths of the manga has always been the cast.
For Chapter 229, I think that we will go back to Urahara and company.
Nah..., dont think there will be a time-skip just yet, but agree a little with Gk on chap 229 to go back to Urahara and company.
I think chap229 will focus more on Aizen's evil plots to start bring in more excitement to the manga (maybe back to Hitsugaya & reports from S.Society), Kubo's forte is to never keep the manga plot down for too long. The characters strengthening plot is to get ready for the upcoming war & suspense, right? then now that it is done, I think Kubo will slowly kick in some excitement to build up more suspense and then put in some action before the big war begins. I seriously just don't think the war will start so fast.
you know what would be awesome if orihime encounters the arrancurs and has a mini skirmish with them...
probably fights hard and takes a grave hit, Hutch would "feel" the vibrations of the battle and the viazards would send a scout to see what's happening. Orihime would hold her own and then someone will interfere...
what an awesome chapter. Ichigo still sucks at retaining his hollow form. Aizen completely evil- still scheming and planning for domination. And the arrancar- there is going to be an army of them soon. Wow- this is the beginning of great happenings in bleach.
Why is Aizen sending Ulquiorra out again? Even with Grimmjow?
Do you think it is to test out the actual strength (should i say improved strengths) of some of the fighters he expects to be problems when the hougyoku is finally ready? and he readies for his final charge?
with at least two ESPADAs, my anticipation is reaching the zenith.
dont tell me Orihime is going to be scouted too? (this has already been stated above)
