    As a African American...I find Nimaiya's character rather offensive..stereotypes like this one greatly displease me come on Kubo

    Well, the chapter was semi-okay. We could of predicted that this Royal Guard was going to put them through some type of test. A survival test. The both of them might have a little bit of difficulty fighting without their weapons, but Ichigo has other powers (Hollow&Quincy) and Renji could use hand to hand combat or Kido. I wasn't the least bit surprised when that RG said their Zanpakuto receives no love, so in turn they weren't able to distinguish Zanpakuto from Shinigami. However, I do remember seeing Renji communicating with his Zanpakuto several times in general, so you'd think he would at least be able to recognize the difference. As for Ichigo? All I can do is SMFH because we know how he loves to ignore communicating with old man Zangetsu on a regular basis unless he's in an extremely dire situation or he just got his ass handed to him by an enemy. Ichigo deserves to be punished.
    My comic suggestions: Ecchi, Martial Arts, Historical, Harem, Adventure!

    What the hell is Naimaiya referring to when he says "10, 9,8,7,6,5 and in the end 3'? My take is he's talking about creating zanpaktuos in sets. Like first set of 10, then 9 and so forth? And of course Meru chan is the materialization of his own zanpakuto.

    Pretty funny chapter, although nothing much 'till the end, much like the chapter before. That said, it's a nice set up for the next one. Oetsu is a pretty interesting fellow.

As for Renji, well, we had little canon experience with his Zabimaru but from the looks of it, they got along pretty well.
    I don't mind that they look and act like children. For the most part in BLEACH, the different factions are filled to the brim with serious people. I personally think the RG is a nice change of pace. Oetsu might have a way of increasing the bond between Shinigami and their zanpakuto as well as making strong swords, I mean, a sword is only as strong as the person's spirit in BLEACH right? He keeps mentioning love and zanpakuto, so obviously he doesn't feel as if their connection is strong enough. And considering we've just seen him shatter Zangetsu and Zabimaru bare-handed, I'm going to assume that he is right.

    I myself was relived 'cause I thought he was going to start rapping at the start. Then he didn't and everything was hunky dory for me. However, I didn't get the pimp vibe that everyone else seems to be getting. As for them not noticing that the women were zanpakuto, I think there is more to it than just communing with your own zapaktuto. I mean if it were that easy, I'm sure they wouldn't be in this situation in the first place.

    As an aside, I do hope Renji is the first one to figure out the trick and let Ichigo play catch up for once.

    Ahahahahaha, this chapter was awesome and the Zanpakuto guy sure is a cracker. XD
    LOL, when Ichigo saw all those sexy girls () must have thought this all too good to be true, hence saying what he said. XD
    Anyway it seems like this time Ichigo and Renji will have an harder test; wonder how they will pass it.

    P.S: Poor Kon, he is always dragged against his will. LOL

    For a few moments there, I started to worry that he was a complete idiot. I'm hoping we get to see something new from the Zanpakutous, at least in terms of the challenge presented to Renji and Ichigo.

    I'm guessing that Nimaiya is perhaps hinting at something like the bond between Komamura and Tenken. If the aim of this training is to make them similar to Komamura, then that means they're training so that their Bankais don't get broken anymore.

    Agree about Renji being the one to figure out the aim of this training. would love to see something like that for once.

    the pimp thing is from the spoilers (which sounded even MORE steryotipical lol)

    After chapter 521, I started thinking that perhaps everyone originally just used those random nameless zanpakutou. This guy may have been the one who developed a way to communicate with the swords, thus turning them into conduits through which dormant shinigami-zanpakutou-abilities can manifest themselves.

    It'd be a huge pain in the ass to have to actually forge all those swords all the time anyway. We still haven't seen how the transition from random nameless zanpakutou to a unique zanpakutou happens, though.

    It actually needs to be stronger than that of Komamura and Tenken. We can't have another incident with Hachwald easily slicing apart Zangetsu, the blade itself needs to be stronger. Tenken just recovers along with Komamura, but it can still be easily damaged by the likes of Aizen level opponents and that is not a good thing. From what I can gather, I believe it'll be a fight against the spirits and themselves.

    1.) It's dark, so they probably need to learn to differentiate between themselves and the spirits so they won't end up hitting each other.
    2.) While fending off multiple spirits, they will most need to materialize a weapon or something to fight with as Kido won't have and effect and both suck at the art anyway. That or they need to tame the wild spirits, showing Oetsu that they have what it takes to handle their spirits.

    I personally think the zanpakuto spirits could be more wild than all of the shinigami actually realize. They are sentient being with their own aspirations for crying out loud.

    and as a black bahamian i find him to be spot on and awesome, but i guess it's about how your quarry is seen more than what he looks like, am i rite? still he's black and he's there, so that in itself is awesome. he's like the morpheus of the Bleach universe

    imagine afro samurai meets master yoshi meets luke cage meets nick fury meets lando calrissian meets django meets the third doctor (of doctor who fame were he sammy davis jr)

    Wow, that dude is so cliche black again, it's a pain to see.

    I'm curious what kind of challenge it will be, some trust games, or a fight after all? But I'm more excited to see Shutara's palace finally. I personally think it's the most interesting guard.

    Urahara's method doesn't involve any of that. It was just stabbing a dummy-like thing with your Zan, no broken Zans involved. The methods are too far apart for one to be based off the other.
    I'm aware of that. The point is that it could be revealed.
    And considering that the previous two Royal Guard members mentioned Urahara, I'm considering it a possibility.

    A weak chapter this week, but seems to be very much on purpose. Stupid chapter this week gearing up for a rousing one the next time with the fight in the dark.
