I find it pretty hilarious that Bach had to tell the exact amount of layers and seconds when it comes to the gap between the Royal Palace and Soul Society.
And I don't mean it doesn't matter that there are layers and a time window, it's just that the numbers seem to be so random and could be changed to any other without it actually making a difference.
But anyway, Ichigo just arrived and now it's time to go back, off you go.
It's also pretty funny how Hisagi and Ikkaku have the balls to show up against 8 Sternritter when they were wiped out by one before. Maybe they feel save beacuse they're with Byakuya and Renji.
Pretty good chapter overall. Though I wish Ikkaku and Hisagi hadn't shown up.
Ikkaku and Yumuchika VS. Four Sternritter girls. (Revenge for Yachiru and Kenpachi)
Byakuya VS. Old guy with glasses Sternritter
Renji VS. Nananabofanana
Rukia VS. Blind, fat guy with eyeball wing cane
Hisagi VS. Bazz B
LOL I don't see why should surprise us the presence of Ikkaku and Yumichika.... Arancar art anyone?, that's how Kubo wants it that's how Kubo likes it... they might have developt some powers and Hisagi was training with Kensei, they may have lost the battle before but maybe their resolve has changed or something like that, or maybe they will fight with all and loose to be saved by someone we haven't see fighting yet... It would be quite boring if the pairings are done all in one chapter with all remaining captains taking all their respective enemies to fight, with all the people left to fight I'm still hoping for some deaths in the SS side.... or, as someone said maybe there are some reinforcement for the Quincy too
YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
So that was the reason the quincies are now able to go to the Spirit King's realm.
Now why is it the Zero Squad so calm despite the fact that they let Ichigo open a damn whole towards them for Bach?
So if it took Ichigo half a day to arrive at seireitei, wouldn't the barriers close by the time Bach is a fraction of the distance towards the royal palace? or would the beam of light keep the barriers from closing?
I think the light will allow them to move faster.
I'm just not really convince that Bach's plan was a great idea. They plan to retreat from SS before before due to the possibility of the Royal Guards coming down.
Now he intends to go to where the Royal Guards are.
Back then, there was a lot more stern ritters alive and no Uryu.
Now? Ywach have got his hands on a ton more power after all these casualties...
The Superstar, The Fear. The Iron. The "K" .The Visionary...
And combining them, he might be able to go more beast mode than before... Especially if he combines Superstar with the Visionary (With Haschwald playing James´ role in it), Ywach might be going god-like on the RG now while doing anything he can imagine.
So him going up there might not be such a bad idea for him after all...
So there must be something to the fact that more stern ritter died to give him this much confidence... or perhaps it was his plan from the very beginning to break Ichigo´s bankai so the RG would have to send for him and have it fixed, for the sole purpose of granting Ywach a way up?
This man have after all claimed to plan everything in the slightest detail... and he have been planning for the last nine years...
But then again, who knows about the RG?
We might see an even fight with them.
Also, is it just me or did Bazz-B hit the dumb section of the fight?
He grabbed Ichigo for burner finger one at point blank... Yet was shown in the chapter before that he´s perfectly fine when sniping with it on a distance in rapid succession when taking out the femritters...
Why didn´t he just snipe Ichigo?
Did he really had to get close and personal with him?
I don´t get this man´s thought-process...

what if its a trollception ? ichigo gets trolled by the royal guards to thinking that he should go back to sereitei to save the gotei 13 and thus creating the hole and juha bach thinks that he could get into royal palace just like that but in reality the royal guards sent ichigo down to deal with the fodder and to create the hole so that juha can come up to them cuz the royal guards are too damn lazy cuz they were just down there and went back up again and dont wanna get off their lazy asses and go down again to deal with bach
and i want a hisagi and yumichika bankai , dont care about the rest
Fan service at its best. Not surprised at all on the ones who appeared but now I'm more curious on what Shunsui and Ukitake are doing since they're not with them.
To all those including me who are anticipating unrevealed bankai?
Bankai party is coming folks!
So with Kenpachi being there it will be a 7 vs. 8 battle.
Even 8 SR couldn't even go as far as scratch Ichigo even when they hit him point blank. And the idea of Ichigo ripping a hole in the barrier is silly. At least we will see fights and a few new ban releases in the next few chapters.
So who is going to stop Ichigo? Even if Uryu faces him Ichigo won't be held back for a long time. Ichigo always showed that besides Inoue and Rukia he has no problem kicking the ass of the ones he considers to be his rival such as Renji,Ikkaku and Uryuu.
And I agree with Toby_Temple: Bach was scared shitless from the idea that the RG are coming and now he wants to go to their territory. Even if he got so much power. Compared to the power of the RG the power Bach absorbed is a joke.
Besides the stupidity of the whole clothes destroyed the barriers thing, which was probably the important bit of the chapter, I rather enjoyed the chapter for the most part. The SRs taking on Ichigo and the arrival of his support were pretty entertaining. Of course, the fact that both Yumichika and Hisagi were there contributed to that favourable view of things significantly.
It's obvious Bach knows stuff about RR. It's almost like he helped building it. There's no telling what kind of weaknesses he plans to exploit.
