I don't know why they made it seem like Kyokotsu was Nanao's sword, but apparently it is not.
She was just hiding the Hakkyouken.

I just want to point out, and I'm just speaking for myself:
I've been posting here since 2007. I have been using the internet for longer.
I am well aware of how a forum works. People post their...

I find myself coming here less and less for the same reason.
I read the chapter, enjoyed it, came here. First thing I read "OMG KUBO ASSPULL."
See you later.
November 05, 2015 11:58 AM
Just saying hi.
I just finished watching the anime last night, and then I just spent the past 3 hours catching up on the manga.
And it's fantastic. Now I think I shouldn't have read all those...
November 03, 2015 01:29 PM
I, for one, don't believe there was a curse in the literal sense.
I consider the blindness a just side effect of the Mangekyou. I don't think there was any sort of failsafe purposely placed into...

Since Uryuu is a mixed Quincy, and he was alive when Yhwach performed the selection 9 years ago, Uryuu should be dead.
Here's where Yhwach points that out in the manga:...
November 03, 2015 11:05 AM
He's saying that Itachi was more interesting when we all thought he killed the entire Uchiha clan for shits and giggles, as opposed to actually being a double agent and stuff.
November 03, 2015 11:04 AM
I'm having a hard time seeing the obvious difference.
Please help me understand.
October 30, 2015 07:35 AM
You think too highly of yourself if you think my feelings are hurt.
No worries, though. :hee
Got it. You're not against characters losing, you're just for battles being one-sided.
October 29, 2015 03:52 PM
All of this is really funny because the fight isn't even over yet.
For some reason, "losing a fight" means that the author is trashing the character. Which is weird.
But let's look at...
October 29, 2015 01:44 PM
Not to be rude, but do you know what fun is? I only respond this way because 90% of your posts read like this.
It's a manga. Apart from telling a story, there are some things the author wants to...
October 29, 2015 01:40 PM
That's because you are thinking that Katen Kyokotsu's ability is just to make children's game real, when really it's a much more broad concept revolving forcing both the user and his opponent to risk...
October 29, 2015 09:40 AM
Kubo's got a knack for poetics. Shunsui's entire zanpakutou is probably one of the most creative in the series.
It's a shame people are calling it boring, or even senseless.
October 29, 2015 09:24 AM
I read, actually, that Kubo didn't actually design the those characters. He oversaw their being designed (by someone else) and approved them.
October 29, 2015 07:02 AM
I don't see why him sheathing his swords matters. That's just his bankai ability.
Yama's bankai was a charred up sword. Gin's bankai looks just like his shikai.
October 28, 2015 10:56 AM
Ah, I see. Probably because he's scowling rather than just looking indifferent.
October 28, 2015 07:18 AM
October 23, 2015 12:10 PM
I agree with most of this, but I think Yamamoto went after Shunsui and Ukitake specifically more because of their personal relationship with each other.
October 23, 2015 07:36 AM
In addition to what Sky Render said:
People seem to be forgetting that Ichibei is ridiculously strong even without Ichimonji.
He doesn't necessarily have to strike...
October 16, 2015 07:11 AM
Probably Nanao, who was going back to Shunsui anyway.
And Shunsui knew she was returning, hence his apology to her.
October 14, 2015 12:31 PM
If Ichibe knows Yamamoto's abilities, there's really no way I see Ichibe losing.
Yamamoto apparently can't be touched while using Zanjitsu Gokui. But Ichibe is clearly a power-monster in his own...
October 09, 2015 01:12 PM
This has been in my mind for a long time. I just wanted to share my thoughts.
Tonton is the most awesome and most feared character in the Naruto-verse. Her beautiful pink skin and pearl necklace...
October 09, 2015 12:10 PM
I think you have to keep in mind that the shinigami don't know how Yhwach's ability works. I don't believe they know about Yhwach's soul fragmenting or how his power distribution works. I don't think...
October 09, 2015 07:44 AM
I think Shunsui is being both cautious and purposefully stuck-up.
Cautious in that he's still treading carefully by not going all-in without knowing the extent of Lille's abilities.
October 07, 2015 01:25 PM
Doesn't Lille say that he also has to be hit (be put in a vulnerable state) 3 times?
Nimaiya only had to cut him once.
October 07, 2015 09:29 AM
The more I look at it, the more I like Lille's Vollstandig.
It's so simple. It's clean. It's pure, which is funny because he's supposed to be the bad guy.
Although, let's be honest. It's got...
October 07, 2015 09:26 AM
1. Lille knows Shunsui's games based on past battles
2. Shunsui didn't play Daruma-san with Starrk. Shunsui never displayed it in battle.
3. Thus, Lille didn't know about Daruma-san....
October 07, 2015 08:57 AM
Shunsui was referring to Starrk. He was saying that Lille should never have heard of Daruma-san ga koronda because he never played it with that Arrancar. "That arrancar" being Starrk.
October 07, 2015 08:05 AM
I still don't see the resemblance, never mind the fact that Lille has 8 wings, :cheez
October 07, 2015 07:55 AM
As with most all of the Sternritters. I don't really see the "insect" part.
October 07, 2015 06:09 AM
So Lille's Vollstandig turns him into a Legendary Pokemon?
I like it.
Shunsui is great, as always. This page is brilliant: http://readms.com/r/bleach/646/2962/13
October 05, 2015 07:26 AM
Yeah, I can see that happening.
October 02, 2015 09:39 AM
It only implies is that the bad guy who defeated him is stronger. Shunsui is not just a regular Captain, but he hasn't yet shown anything that would seem to make him even more powerful than Yamamoto....
October 01, 2015 09:56 AM
Seeing as how I'd never heard the term "Escondite/Chocolate Ingles" before reading this chapter, the answer would be no.
The closest equivalent I can think of is "Red Light/Green Light", which is...
October 01, 2015 09:18 AM
I think it's best to wait for a better translation, because there are issues with both Mangapanda's and Mangastream's.
Ultimately, it seems like what Shunsui is saying is this, if you mix the two...
October 01, 2015 08:09 AM
That makes sense, although it's worded so weirdly in both Mangapanda's and Mangastream's translations.
I read somehwere else that Starrk's name was mentioned in there.
October 01, 2015 07:23 AM
I can only assume that the "arrancar" part is a mistake on Kubo's part, since that wouldn't make any sense whatsoever.
Although, "chocolate ingles" is Spanish, and does seem to be an actual...
October 01, 2015 05:52 AM
Boss Mode Activated.
Shit just got real.
September 29, 2015 08:35 AM
I think we should wait and see what Shunsui actually did before we come to any real conclusions.
September 24, 2015 09:57 AM
But his shikai was activated when he reappeared, and that was preceded by him singing that weird children's game thing.
I would guess it's another game.
September 24, 2015 06:04 AM
Shunsui singing nursery rhymes?
I smell a bankai~~~~~
September 23, 2015 07:26 AM
Itachi clearly states he wasn't able to use Kotoamatsukami during his fight with Sasuke because of the 10-year waiting period.
It's kind of...
September 18, 2015 12:09 PM
And then have Yama and Ichibe fight Yhwach in a super badass mustache-vs-beard battle to the death.
September 17, 2015 07:13 AM
Ikkaku and Yumichika are probably still trying to get over the fact that there was a giant, talking hand with an eye in its palm.
September 16, 2015 03:11 PM
I imagine Pernida's flashback would involve the time when it was just a wee, little pinky finger.
September 16, 2015 12:09 PM
Since you're concluding, I will, too I guess. But I'll say this:
Why should Kubo bring up any characters for that reason?
Not to be rude, but you may have missed the point. The point...
September 16, 2015 10:43 AM
I didn't mean physically "seeing" where it occurred.
What I meant was that I don't understand your thought process behind a figment of Mayuri's imagination being humiliated by Mayuri, who had...
September 16, 2015 10:15 AM
I'm having a hard time seeing where Szayel was bitchslapped and humiliated....?
If anything, Szayel was humiliating Mayuri by calling out Mayuri's hypocrisy.
September 16, 2015 07:34 AM
Wonderful chapter. Szayel's appearance was unexpected and refreshing. And, quite frankly, Kubo drew the fuck out of Szayel's face.
I mean....look at this: http://readms.com/r/bleach/643/2931/10
September 15, 2015 03:31 PM
And, let's be honest, it's not like the Naruto threads are bursting with discussion now. Since the manga ended things are pretty.....dead. Not like Madara dead but like....Shikaku and Inoichi dead.
