    Well yeah, Ichigo channels GT through Zangetsu just like a Hollow channels a Cero through a body part or for that matter how any Shinigami or Quincy channels any of their abilities through body parts or weapons. The point is what the technique resembles after its released, and GT according to Ulquiorra resembles a Cero.

    One Piece is a series created by a genius, it's a masterpiece, it's like a fine wine, it only gets better with time.

    What if the Royal Guards are not a bunch of assholes as we all think? Maybe they're nice people.

    Mayuri didn't describe them as such plus the atmosphere sucks for that to be the case. I think they are a bunch of assholes (though I could be wrong).

    At the very least they're probably going to admonish Yamamoto for losing or the other captains for allowing him to die.

    I'm sure at least one of them will be an asshole, but maybe not all. Fat Lady looks way too cheery to be an asshole, but the guy with the sideburns looks pretty vicious. For some reason I get the feeling he may be a former Kenpachi.

    I'm not quite sure about the other three. I can't tell if the guy with the glasses is crazy in a funny way or a scary way. I guess he'll be the 'silly' one. Hikifune (or at least I assume it's Hikifune) looks stern. She's kind of scary, actually. The beardy guy, I don't know what to expect. He seems like he could either be really nice or just cruel.

    But the Captains have said some pretty cryptic things about them, too. Mayuri said he's not happy about meeting them, and Shinji seemed to be warning Ichigo about it. It could be because they don't fully trust them, or they're scared of them, or just wary of their general reputation. I guess we'll see when they open their mouths next chapter.

    But then again, the only time we've seen Ichigo reaching his full potential and completely mastering his powers (and yet, there was no Quincy powers in the mix back then) was against Godizen, remember very well that form because it is ultimately what Ichigo would reach sooner or later, that is the full extent of his potential

    Considering now, that he have : Shinigami powers, Fullbring, Quincy, and maybe Hollow too (still unsure about this, but since Fullbring comes from Hollow powers then...), the full extent of his potential will probably change again, resulting in some new form (he will probably reach that at the end of the manga, against the Reio maybe ?)
    From what I gather TS does increase slashing power however that is simply not the overall point of it. I guess that right now the point is the cumulative effect of using it. The enemy ultimately has to deal with every attack being stronger than what it would be with shikai.

    Fullbring comes from hollow powers so as far as we know acquiring it and assimilating it is something which should have enhanced ichigo's normal hollow abilities. I can't help but wonder if ichigo is scared of using his mask. I find it a tad strange that he hasn't even tried to use it so far. Before his dangai training he was said to be scared of his hollow powers so perhaps now that fullbring would have hypothetically enhanced them he fears them even more? Or perhaps zangetsu removing shirosaki from ichigo's soul having him within zangetsu is what made him not have his mask and shirosaki's powers simply exist in ichigo's standard forms. Either way, ichigo still has hollows powers, he is just manifesting them differently and perhaps scared to use them.

    Yea...that's the vibe the sideburns guy is giving off.

    I get the feeling the Fat Lady will be the Mayuri type. Maybe that's why he doesn't like the Zero Squad, coz she's there and she creeps him out.

    The guy with the glasses looked the most like a One Piece character. Especially that maniacal grin of his.

    I'm betting the bearded guy is the head and the longest serving member of the bunch (probably the most powerful as well).

    They are there to change things up in the SS and they are probably there to admonish the hell out of all the captains. Since they are more powerful, the captains can't complain or refute whatever they say and whatever they do. I think the captains dread whatever actions the Zero squad may take.

    Apart from Hikifune, I reckon all of them have served under Yamamoto in the Original Gotei 13 (the one that Bach refers to as being totally BEAST).

    Re: Bleach 516 Discussion / 517 Predictions

    What were those pillars in the beginning of the chapter? Was that actually the Royal Dimension or something? Because I haven't seen those pillars before.

    There are atleast two different translations available so I'm confused.
    One makes it seem like it's in Seiretei, and the other leaves you wondering.

    Thx

    Given the obscuring of identity and emblem on the back that it is in the Royal Dimension. I hadn't considered it beforehand and the surroundings certainly look like run of the mill Soul Society stuff but the receiving area the Gotei Captains are in show no sign of those pillars and obscuring the faces outside of the haori wouldn't serve any purpose for the regular Gotei captains.

    They might seem nice at first but I expect them to pull a face-heel turn at some point in the future once it's revealed they're in service to some kind of big jubbly evil thing aka Spirit King.

    Example: You think those Hollow souls are "purified"? More like siphoned directly into the palace to serve as a delicious meal for Lord Cthu-ahem Soul King!

    And then we use those souls to create Philosophers stones which I've implanted into every member of the Zero Division.

    I may be getting my references mixed here.

    Juha's words about how ruthless Gotei 13 was comes to my mind. If ZD compose of captains that have served in earliest Gotei 13 or the defense body prior to that, I doubt we will see them with pleasant personalities. Hikifune could be an exception. Hiyori's affection with her suggests she was a loving and a caring captain. Looking at them, the fat one is my pick for Hikifune. She has soft expressions on her face, while the other seems really serious. Just guessing...

    There are six pillars from what we can see, but only 5 royal guards. I guess one of them is missing(Isshin ?) or remained back in the royal realm(The guard captain commander ?)

    From what we've seen from those characters, I wouldn't really trust any of them myself, even Unohana may have a dark side to her that we haven't seen yet. Urahara was/is a manipulator, Kenpachi is a psycho, Unohana is too quiet even for me.

    Is that 100% sarcasm or more like 80? :P

    Ephesos
    There are five, because there are only five royal guards, not six. Why wouldn't the people with the most information from G13 know, if there were more. It's not like there was any reason to hide the real number, just saying.

    Re: Bleach 516 Discussion / 517 Predictions

    I wouldnt be surprised if the royal guard was condescending and arrogant and therefore got on the gotei 13's nerves. They are stronger than the G13 and they know it so they'll probably ask why the G13 let soul society get to the state it did. On the other hand however they may be happy that soul society got destroyed because they can get out of the royal palace and do something for a change. I doubt they do much there considering all the threats are handled by the G13 first. Also it seems to me that the RG and the G13 are two separate organizations for one they have two separate interests (to an extent) thats just my impression that I got when kyoraku was describing the wall.
