    Why did White Hollow decide to bite Masaki instead of cutting her up?

    Why did that hollow choose to bite the girl, when he has a perfectly good, functioning sword attached to his limbs???

    Re: One thing that does not make sense in the latest chapter

    ^Probably.

    But then I do wonder if there was something more to it as well. White killed the other two Shinigami with its sword arms, and fought Isshin with its swords, so why act differently with Masaki? It broke off it's fight with Isshin just to get a bite out of her, like it just had to. Maybe Aizen programmed it to kill Shinigami, which is why it went after every one it could find in the WotL, regardless of their reiatsu. When it encountered something else, a Quincy (who is effectively a spiritually-rich human, a Hollow's favourite snack), it probably gave in to it's natural instinct as a Hollow and went to eat it.

    ^Well it lost one of its arms while fighting Isshin so maybe it decided biting was more viable.

    Well Masaki did sort of "invite it", whereas the others didn't or did try attack it.
    Assuming it's just a bunch of instincts consuming it like hollows, perhaps it did bite her because she "invited it" to herself, and not going into attack mode, due to the sheer instincts.

    It's kinda easy to manipulate something that reacts on instincts alone, if you know how it behaves, perhaps Masaki knew that inviting a hollow to attack you, would make it mindlessly go straight to the eating table.

    Hollows "eat" reiatsu and Quincies are full of that stuff. Plus, Masaki is pure-blood Quincy, so I imagine, the hollow may have infected her or something to preserve itself. Who knows, it's an experiment or whatever of Aizen.

    ^This
    We have actually seen a hollow bite a Shinigami (Rukia, who jumped in front of Ichigo). They eat rich souls. This thing is a hollow, so...

    That was the first thing I posted back when the chapter came out but I guess nobody cared. As for why, I'm just going to go with plot. Ichigo has to be born somehow.

    But why didn't it eat the other shinigami and attempt to eat Isshin? They are choked full of reiatsu as well?

    I don't recall any instances where Quincies are described to be "full" of reiatsu. They fight by manipulating the reiatsu in their surroundings, not using any that composes/originates from their main bodies. Inoue even mentions that she doesn't feel any reiatsu eminating from that Jailor Quincy in Hueco mundo when he was fighting Ichigo.

    Not to mention that the Hollow did not get lured by Isshin or tried to eat him when Isshin first tried to bring forth the mystery attacker by releasing his massive reiatsu at the very beginning.

    Because it was either programmed to handle Shinigami in a specific fashion or it remembers being a shinigami.

    Because she explicitely offered him her arm to bite. And she was human, reiryoku-filled Quincy to boot. It was probably delicious.

    Well, the entire situation is nonsense. Masaki's plan was terrible and there is no reason for it to have worked.

    -The hollow was not captain bankai strong but it was still strong enough to actually make fodder out of masaki.
    - Her plan relied on the hollow attacking exactly like it did and in no other way. Had the hollow done anything else (which it could considering ishin pointed out it fought like a shinigami) masaki would have died. The remaining arm, cero, an ordinary kick.... none of those are things against which masaki would have been able to defend herself from.

    So.... what happened here is about as probable as winning the lottery and ultimately relied on the hollow improbably doing a number of things which masaki did not have any control over.

    hollows eat souls.
    the first chapter, the hollow tried to eat ichigos sisters. there are lots of chapters with hollows biting, and attempting to eat people.

    and wouldnt you want to eat masaki if given half the chance?
    Why wouldnt he bite her,


    Be proud, that after receiving my blade you still retain the shape of a human.

    Hey, a reader has two choices:

    a) Believe that the Hollow took the bait cuz it was a Hollow and instinct to feed kicked in, which shouldn't come as weird in a Hollow.
    b) Nitpick and fail to enjoy the story.

    Your choice, folks.

    It's not like Masaki has any other choice. I mean, it was not a flawless plan and it never was said to be. It was literally the only thing she could do other than keep missing with her arrows and become minced meat or run away and become even mincer meat.

    She got lucky, yes. So what? She still got some big cojones.

    There's a difference between:
    1) watching a character gamble, weigh his/her options, and be rewarded with the results with the appropriate probability that dictated its likelihood of coming to pass
    2) the author just forcing/bending his own laws/rules of the universe of his design to produce a highly improbable outcome with little/no justification.

    For instance, Renji's Bankai. Author gave the excuse through Mayuri that Renji's blades that were broken by Byakuya were never recovered to explain that broken Bankais can never be repaired. Here (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/bleach/v17/c143/7.html), we see literally nothing but ground up wood and the head piece that is barely intact.

    Or the author choosing to prevent Unohana from joining the battle against the quincies for arbitrary reasons like "because the commander told me to," when we have witnessed that she was overwhelmingly stronger than the weakened-Kenpachi, who was able to kill three with ease during the invasion, and was capable of instantly healing a guy whose flesh she MELTED OFF with her Bankai.

    I am all for letting artists/writers creating whatever story, but when they start bending their own rules, it is just irritating.

    Also, the progression of the story is even more taxing, feeling as if I'm watching a HD video that stops to buffer every 5 seconds. Worsened by the fact that the author wastes more time introducing side characters that serve NO PURPOSE whatsoever (e.g. Ryuunosuke and Shino, the two Shinigami that we were introduced to at the beginning of this arc, and Ikumi, Ichigo's employer).

    Don't get me wrong, when the story gets good, it is very engaging. But there are many instances when the flaws of the manga just get overwhelming.
