Yes, I want more Royal Guard action
Yes, I want to see the Soul King
Yes, I want the Quincies to invade it
Yes, I want Aizen sneaking in and be the Soul King
No, because it has been boring thus far
No, because it's not relevant to the actual fight
I don't care much, Sado can become Soul King if he wants

why did kubo skiped ichi's training
Cause he is rushing things? Or maybe there was nothing interesting to show. We already saw him getting a new zanpakuto, not much can top that. Let's see his new moves in actual battle.
Odd that there is no mentioning of Rukia, Renji and Byakuya. Arab clothes, however... Chigo is coming to save the Lamp Society!
probably for a flashback later, just before he uses whatever he learn't
Nvm. Its out http://www.mangapanda.com/bleach/555
Maybe Ichigo just off-panelled Renji and Rukia, because he thought that they wouldn't be of any use in the upcoming battle and thus they should stay in a safer place?
Though it's really surprising that Ichigo has arab closes. So soon he is going to join the battle. I didn't expect it to be that soon. So we might actually see some more Captains going down...
That look on Urahara's face tough. "I'll definitely do something" --- bankai?
So now, let's sum up:
End of chapter 554: Ichigo calls and Bambietta goes "Vollständig"
End of chapter 555: Ichigo is on the way, Bambiette is "Vollständig"
Well done Kubo, nice progress! But the scene with Urahara was nice, really badass face like: Dont worry Ichigo, I am here too
Chapter seemed really short. I think the Quincy are still underestimating the captains. Sure they'll be super strong now with their volstandig, but I have a feeling next chapter we'll see Shinji with his mask on. Thats just my hunch, though Bambi must be pretty damn powerful if her peers are saying she doesn't even need it. I guess Urahara has another plan, or we get to see Benehime in action soon.
On another detail, when was the last time you saw Ichigo in some foreign garb going to SS? I remember a certain cat helping him out with that!

Ooh! Looks like Shinji just got 'Bambi-slapped'!!!
So it appears that not all of the Quincy can necessarily use Vollstandig due to the toll it takes on their bodies!!! I've still got bets on Bambietta "E" the "Emotion"; her crew are saying how she released because she's angry (perhaps this was the best time for her to release, whilst her blood is boiling)!!! Her crew are also saying she's stupid; perhaps this is because when she fights she doesn't rely on skillful fighting, but focuses on her emotions to fuel her attacks and get the job done quickly!!!
Still, I wonder what they mean when they say "she's stupid, the fight will be over in a second"; do they mean she's stupid because she'll win in a second and not savour the battle, or do they mean she will lose in a second because she's not thinking things through?
Haha, i've just laughed so hard reading this chapter.
I guess they just used the "elevator" to bring down Rukia, Byakuya and Renji, so they can't do it with Ichigo. Anyway, let's wait for a bit of Quincy Vollständig hype until we see some Urahara wits to counter that. Maybe he'll also go Bankai (well, he has too, it's probably THE bankai everybody is wating for since he told Sado that his isn't suited for his training), but his "something" could also mean that he's transferring Grimmjow to Soul Society! (and Orihime, of course. Someone has to reanimate all those half dead shinigami). So we know that Soul Society still has to survive half a day. If you ask me, it doesn't look too serious for them as long as Yhwach doesn't interfere. The stern ritter look strong using their vollständig, However, it's not that Soul Society has shown everything they've got. Shunsui (+ Ukitake?) vs Haschwalth might be the most interesting of those fights, because the latter seems to be a monster. But the new Captain Commander showing off his Bankai? Has to be a highlight!
And it seems to me that at the moment Soul Society needs a different kind of saviour than Ichigo. I predict a dynamic Kenpachi Zaraki entry in the next 4 weeks!
