    6, 16 or 26?

    I noticed that there're still people saying there're 26 SR, and others correcting them that it's 16, while I think the only number that was given about SR is 6 (fortunately, nobody tries to covince me it's minus 4 ), and it's not the number of SR in total, but of those known to be able to fight evenly with captains.

    The reasons, as far as I know, are:
    - 26 - letters of english alphabet
    - 16 - http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/499/5
    - 6 - http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/499/5
    If there are any other reasons (based on canon info, not opinion), please say it.

    Hold on, the same page? One must be a mistranslation!
    I don't have any reasons to discard 16 or 26, but I simply don't think Kubo would give us the exact number of SR. Simply because ppl would start counting how many enemies are left. Bearing this in mind, mangastream's translation makes perfect sense (it does most of the time) - 6 SR (the 4 who stole bankais, the German postman dude and Nanana) were fighting captains, so those are mentioned to be at least captain level.

    I think this should be cleared, since a minor detail like this could make someone say Bleach is inconsistent if it's revealed that there are, like, 21 SR.

    So, what are your opinions?

    Re: 6, 16 or 26?

    http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...13-page-9.html

    The page says at least 6. At least, meaning there could be more. And we've seen more than 6. So......that's that.


    So....16 or 26?
    I say there will be 26 total. (27, actually - the Lloyd Brothers).

    My reasoning:

    1. They're fashioned on the letters of the English alphabet. Of which there are 26. We've already seen about half of the Sternritters (12 or 13), though some of those are still unnamed (a couple we haven't seen their face, either).

    2. They're expected to come back for a round 2. Perfect time for the other half to join in the fray. Especially since there are more people expected to join in (Ganju, the Fullbringers, Urahara, perhaps Yoruichi, Isshin, and the rest of the Visoreds)

    26 makes the most sense. To me, anyway.


    Never getting an actual number of Sternritter might be weird. If Kubo was never going to actually give a finite amount, he wouldn't have led us to believe there is one by assigning them letters of the alphabet.

    _______________


    Sternritter we've seen:
    http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Stern_Ritter

    I'm bored at work, so I took the liberty:

    1. Bambietta
    2. As Nodt
    3. Driscoll
    4. Berenice
    5. Jerome
    6. NaNaNa
    7. Loyd
    8. Royd
    9. Haschwald
    10. Shaz
    11. Buzzbee
    12. the mustached SR who fought Shunsui
    13. the one that fought Hitsugaya
    14. the one that stole Soifon's bankai
    16. the luchador SR that fought alongside As Nodt
    17. Quilge
    18. Whoever Rukia was fighting

    Since there are at least 18, I'm inclined to think there are 8 more.

    Re: 6, 16 or 26?

    As Nodt, Shaz Domino, Bambietta Basterbine, NaNaNa Najahkoop, Buzzbee, Lloyd Llyod, Royd Llyod, Haschwald, Berenice Gabrielli, Jerome Guizbatt, Driscoll Berci, Old Man SR, Masked SR, Wolverine SR, Wrestler SR and the one who Ukitake fought against, but wasn't shown (Didn't count Quilge here)

    It seems that there's 9 (definitely Haschwald, Buzzbee, As Nodt, Bambietta, NaNaNa, Old Man SR, Masked SR, Wolverine SR, the one who fought against Ukitake) who are truly powerful, those who stole Bankai + Haschwald, Old Man and Buzzbee and NaNaNa and the one who fought against Ukitake

    Actually SR being 26 makes sense, but I recall Kubo saying that the enemy won't be outnumbering the heroes, but rather it would be few people that will increase with time

    Anyway, 16 pillar of condensed reishi were shown = 16 SR that invaded SS

    Well if Kubo is really following the english alphabet, then I guess that 26 ST is a fair number.
    After all you said everything that had to be said about this matter, so I agree with you.

    One attacking and controlling Jidanbou. With clown-like legs.

    So we have 19 SR's now. 7 more to go, I guess.

    Could be Shaz Domino, I don't recall seeing his legs... And he was the one who attacked Akon, guess he went after the scientific team

    Just when he was about to say what's his ability is, Ichigo pwned him... So ?
    Different legs and different boots ? Where that ? I see nothing, too far away to say wether he's or he isn't the same person...

    So other than that ?

    Agreed. That's nothing to prove it's not Shaz.
    And he was attacking the RDI - where could that puppeteer have gone?
    I'm still kinda torn about this, though. The upper half of Shaz's body didn't fit with the boots. Maybe he has an awful fashion sense

    Baggy trousers and HUGE boots. We can see, that Shaz clothing isn't so... outstanding. His ability had something to do with those daggers he was throwing. Everyone was killed with them. He wouldn't have bothered throwing daggers if he could control anyone. And why was Akon able to open Garganta? Somehow he couldn't be controlled?

    Seems outstanding enough to me, having a Cheetah's pattern on his face and part of his clothing, sounds funky enough and more outstanding than Haschwald and others SR

    Look, there's just not enough proofs to say wether he is Shaz Domino, or another SR, but so far, I'd stick with the number Kubo gave us : 16 SR, and as I mentioned earlier, 26 SR makes sense considering the alphabet, but who knows what Kubo has on mind, I mean 26 captain level individuals, sounds a bit too much (considering they have also 5 Bankai too)

    Which is probably why he made some of them complete fodder. Shaz, for example. Not to mention the 3 Kenpachi killed on his own.

    I am hoping he uses the added letters in the German Alphabet meaning there would be like 29 in the end.
    Could the Sage of Six Paths be named Sanada Yukimura?

    Re: 6, 16 or 26?

    I dont think all of SR are captain-level. Maybe half of them are VC-level. Some VCs still not show their abilities such as Nanao, Nemu, Isane, Yachiru, Iba...and maybe former VCs who are retired like: Omadea Marenoshin (2nd), Iba Chikane (3rd), Yamada Seinosuke (4th), Shirogane Ginjiro (6th, before Renji), Kotsubaki Jinemon (7th)....
    I hope Kubo will let them fight.

    Re: 6, 16 or 26?

    Well, why people think they use English alphabet? They actually use Latin alphabet.
    Well, it also depends if he only wants to use a normal alpabet or will he use such things as Ö, Ä, Ü and ß. Though they aren't actual letters from alphabet, but they are used to show the diftongs or whatever it is called in English. So it's up to Kubo to decide, what he wants. But it seems that there will be at least 26 SR.
