    Re: Bleach 523 Discussion / 524 Predictions

    Well here is the thing though...Nimaiya created the Zanpakuto as it is currently known. However thats not to say that there weren't "regular" swords that were being used by Shinigami who channeled their own reiatsu through the blades of their swords and fought in battles like that. Kind of like what Zaraki does when he fights. This guy gave SS the Asauchi, it was never stated that he created the entire concept of a sword/blade all together and that there was nothing like that in SS before he came along. My guess is that the strongest and best Shinigami were always naturally able to inject their spirit and reiatsu into regular swords and through that method a rare few and powerful, completely from scratch, created what became known as Zanpakuto way back in the beginning of the Shinigami's time.

    By the looks of it Nimaiya, by creating the Asauchi, gave the opportunity for all Shinigami to be able to have some type of a Zanpakuto to be used even by those who cannot achieve Shikai or Bankai. That way they could still perform their duties as Shinigami. If something like that isn't the case then this guy would essentially be the father of all Shinigami since it is the duty of the Shinigami to keep balance and the way they do that is by using a Zanpakuto to perform Konso and Hollow Purification. This would make him slightly younger then the Soul King and probably one of the first, if not the first, Shinigami to ever exist. I don't know about all of that. I think he just gave all Shinigami, rather then just those rare few, the ability to do their job via the Asauchi thus greater balance of souls could be achieved as the human population grew over time.

    it was never said that flashback was 2000 years old... but yea its safe to assume that yamaji learned his bankai much more before that incident...it could be many thousand years back.....

    again it is never mentioned that shunsui was a kid 1000 years back... he used to be kid when he studied in yamaji academy (which was atleast 1000 years back) and from there he became g13 captain under yamaji... after yamaji became CC of g13 he possibily couldnt have been teaching at his academy too...so any student of yamaji academy is atleast more than 1000 years old...we can just conclude that both the flashbacks (shunsui and sasakibe one) are more than 1000 year back... and most probably when yamaji became CC then sasakibe joined as his vice-captain and shunsi,ukitake and unohana as captains...i.e., excatly 1000 years back...

    quincies were not defeated 1000 years ago... their main annhilation took some 200 years back...1000 year ago incident is related to Bach only...

    byakuya never says that sasakibe achieved bankai before shunsui was born...its sasakibe achieved bankai before shunsui and ukitake did...

    Just to add in my say:

    http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...18-page-7.html

    Sasakibe hadn't used his bankai in 2000 years according to Driscoll. The flashback, therefore, would have to be 2000 years ago, since Sasakibe never used his bankai since then.

    http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...25-page-6.html

    Here, Yama doesn't have the scar left by Sasakibe's bankai. It's likely Sasakibe and Shunsui are relatively the same age. Sasakibe is probably older.

    http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...00-page-5.html

    Furthermore, Sasakibe at least had his bankai before Gotei 13 was formed. So he's at least 1000 years old.
    Yamamoto....he was probably pushing 3000.

    So.....Unohana, Shunsui, Ukitake, and Sasakibe are all relatively the same age. Sasakibe and Unohana are probably the oldest out of those four.

    Re: Bleach 523 Discussion / 524 Predictions

    Captain-Commander has kept his position as the way it is for about a millennium. The first generation of bloodthirsty captains should also be part of that time, since they were referred to as a generation of Gotei 13. After the Academy's foundation and the following graduations, Kyouraku and Ukitake became captains. Judging by that, they are most likely younger than 1000 years old. At the very least, that number is an upper limit.
    But we also know that Sasakibe mastered the Bankai 2000 years ago. To be fair, Sasakibe always looked more like an elderly man compared to those two.

    As my conclusion, I theorize that this isn't an inconsistent timeline info, but rather, a different interpretation of Byakuya's words exist. I'm assuming what he meant there when he said he mastered the Bankai before those two wasn't about age, but rather the time that has passed for the effort to achieve that.

    ok i was confused about that ..if it is 200 or 2000 (translation)...if its 200 then he used bankai around the time quincies were annhilated (but that is proven wrong coz the 3rd link you gave shows byakuya saying that he didnt use bankai since formation of g13) ...if its 2000 than the flashback could go way before 2000 years...coz sasakibe must have used his bankai some other times too when he scarred yamaji with it...

    that is what i believe...shunsui and ukitake are around same age as sasakibe coz shunsui flashback yamaji does not have a scar of sasakibe banaki... it could be like 100-200 year difference between sasakibe and shunsui... but shunsui and ukitake are definitely much older than 1000 years atleast or 2000 years is what is believe now...

    Well, the 2000 year bit is more of vandenreich information which we know is generally accurate.
    http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...18-page-7.html
    http://mangahelpers.com/t/cnet128/releases/35558

    And the more accurate translations do say sasakibe learned bankai long before shunsui and ukitake were born.

    It wasn't said shunsui was a kid however context suggests that timeline. For one thing, yamamoto already had the scar chojiro have him. Since chojiro mastered bankai long before kyoraku and shunsui were born it leaves a gap for quite a large margin. Then we have the actual conversation between yamamoto and kyoraku. More so, yamamoto also seems rather aged in comparison to when we saw the chojirou flashback.
    http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...25-page-6.html

    The conversation would seem to reference yamamoto being the asshole juhabach mentioned when genryusai died. In this regard it makes perfect sense that conversation is going on after the quincy were defeated 1000 years ago. Shunsui is not necessarily exactly 1000 years old however that is at least the maximum age he can have at the moment.

    Also, based on what we have seen it is obvious that there have been several quincy wars. Mayuri specifically made a point of saying that the current war is the result of yamamoto not killing juhabach 1000 years ago. The arc is called the 1000 year blood war. Juhabach makes references to things which happened 1000 years ago. In that regard the quincy that were defeated 1000 years ago are as far as we know an entirely different branch of quincy. Maybe the ishida branch quincy are some sort of renmant from the ones defeated 1000 years ago or they split however as a whole we have little reason to believe the ishida branch quincy and vandenreich were one and the same.

    Although the clothes ishida has during the SS arc look alot like the VR's clothes, but that's just coincidence surely

    I think next chapter will switch to Aizen and how he escapes. He probably knew he'd be beaten by Ichigo and made plans to break free just in case. I think his true goal was to acquire power to beat the Quincies since they're powerful as hell, being able to kill Yamamoto. He'll probably team up with Ichigo and take on the Quincies, along with Kenpachi and Byakuya. But for next chapter, I think we'll either see Aizen breaking out or some kind of indication that he'll break out or is planning to break out.

    Aizen is awesome like that.

    If there was no direct connection, would it had made sense for Kirge to mention Vollständig being developed from letzten Stil, with Sogen Ishida keeping the old form. Yet it's weird that Bach seemingly only appeared in the the fight 1000 years ago, not the one 200 year back. Maybe they had contact until the annihilation, but remained in the Vandenreich until prepared for revenge.

    Re: Bleach 523 Discussion / 524 Predictions

    Okay, so we have have seen 2 things in this chapter; Ichigo and Renji fighting the Asauchi, and Zaraki fighting Unohana in a fight to the death!...

    One thing I found interesting that Nimaiya said is "yeah, not quite, but we'll just say that for now" when Ichigo asked if the Asauchi they were fighting were manifestations of the Zanpakutou; in other words, they're not manifestations. My theory is that the Spiritual Beings within the inner world are actually projections of the physical beings they're fighting now; when a Shinigami communicates with their "inner" being, they're actually communicating telepathically to one of the beings shown here.

    As for Zaraki and Unohana's death match, I think it's going to be interrupted by Aizen, as he's supposed to be residing in the same place that they're fighting now.
    Predictions
    • Just as Quincies are evolved beings born from Humans, Shinigami are evolved beings born from Hollows.
    • Once Yhwach dies, Ichigo's Quincy powers will disappear and his soul will become unstable, causing the onset of Soul Suicide.
    • Yhwach isn't going to be the final antagonist.

    Um, I looked at it and I'm sure I saw the double scar on his forehead in that picture, so, it has got to be after Sasakibe's introduction.
    I don't believe those two were around before the foundation of the Gotei 13. If they were around back then, they would be like 1000 when they joined the academy, which isn't something probable as it seems.
    In the most likely case, Kyouraku and Ukitake weren't captains in the first generation. Gotei 13 was established with that gang led by Captain-Commander and the academy graduates, beginning with Kyouraku and Ukitake were the first to replace them later on.

    He had no idea he was going to be defeated by a mere human. If he even remotely considered that probability, Aizen would have killed Ichigo in the first place with ease.
    Breaking out isn't an option, but SS might be forced to unleash the evil to defeat the big evil at some point.

    Dont forget the sasakibe flashback shows how the capt commander is a teacher of martial arts at that moment. In a dojo. Also the capt commander in the view of the first Gotei he looks about the same. So its very well possible this is all from 2000 years + ago.

    Isn't that Sasakibe's scar on Yama's forehead in the middle panel? So Sasakibe is older than Shunsui by at least some time. Plus, the implication is that the flashback with young Shunsui took place well after Yama last used his Bankai and the last known time that happened was during his last clash with Juha Bach 1000 year ago.

    Then again, Yamamoto said Shunsui and Ukitake were the first graduates of the Shinigami Academy to become Captains, and given how old the Academy is (actually I forget - how old is it?) that would make them fairly old, too.

    Well, VR's clothes always looked more like military uniforms. Ishida's clothes have more of priestlike undertones rather than military ones. The uniforms are similar in that they are a tad plain and white however the differences I pointed out are relevant.

    I suggested they were separate branch of quincy and perhaps even had a common dating back to the original quincy war. Its not that strange juhabach would seek out the ishidas though, they were the last of that particular branch of quincy and had every reason to hate shinigami. Juhabach is not the sort to let war assets go to waste.

    Sasakibe hadn't used his bankai in 2000 years according to Driscoll. The flashback, therefore, would have to be 2000 years ago, since Sasakibe never used his bankai since then.

    http://www.mangastream.to/bleach-cha...25-page-6.html

    Here, Yama doesn't have the scar left by Sasakibe's bankai. It's likely Sasakibe and Shunsui are relatively the same age. Sasakibe is probably older.

    Furthermore, Sasakibe at least had his bankai before Gotei 13 was formed. So he's at least 1000 years old.
    Yamamoto....he was probably pushing 3000.

    So.....Unohana, Shunsui, Ukitake, and Sasakibe are all relatively the same age. Sasakibe and Unohana are probably the oldest out of those four.
    We know Yama as obviously the oldest. He looked about half age 2000 years ago when he fought Sasakibe, so I'd say he is around 4000 years old. I myself assumed he was a bit over 1000 because of the statements he made, that know Shinigami has been stronger than him in 1000 years, obviously I got that wrong.

    Next, based mostly on the look of the character, I would assume Sasakibe to be the second oldest. Followed by Unohana, not only because she was a founding member, but even before we found that out I knew this, because of how Shunsui and Ukitake talked to her, as if she was an elder or at least someone above them (in age).

    Next would of course be Shunsui and Ukitake, with Shunsui being a bit older. Maybe Kenpachi is relatively close in age to these people as well, we know he has to be older than 1000 years because he found Unohana before, and it seems she was relatively different after the war, unless of course they fought after the war and it took a while before she became Retsu.


    I am still a bit confused about this timeline though. The "Divisions" now known as the Gotei 13 were thugs, and it seems they were this until the war were they found justice in defeating the Quincy. But it seems that more than a 1000 years ago, with Shunsui, and more than 2000 years ago with Sasakibe, Yama was a teacher. There was of course the Soul Society (or in some form of a SS) before the war, but if Yama had a band of thugs, why was he a teacher as well.

    Maybe I missed something and someone can fill me in.



    I question strikes me when I think of Unohana. Do you guys and gals think she has always had this murderous tendincy, even as Retsu? Or Did she actually change and the return of the Quincy and everything that came with that, changed that?

    I'm under the impression that she actually found this justice and changed, but the return of the Quincy made her revert. But I know another who believes that she was just hiding her true self all this time.



    Oh and one more addition to this post. People probably already spoke on this, but anyone else wonder if the way to get a Zanpakuto was through its creator, then how did Ichigo get one? Yes he got stabbed, but he didn't keep Rukia's. Also, the creator doesn't look that old, unless there is a time difference where he lives, compared to Yama, how did the Shinigami before him get one?

    Of course the idea of someone creating a Zanpakuto changes how we all think of them, maybe you have this power but a Zanpakuto is just a way of using it.

    I'm under the impression that these Asauchi are mimicked after a people or family that is born with them, like Ichigo.

    When Oetsu mentioned that the Asauchi were angry because of how Renji and Ichigo treated their own Zanpakuto, all I could think of, when he was naming off how they are treating their Zanpakuto as "partners, tools, pets, etc" that you are supposed to treat them as if they are you, because that is how they are formed.



    Anyways, I know that was a lot, feel free to break it into even more pieces! I'll stick around for a while.
