I'm curious as to whether or not Quincies are unable to balance souls or if Bach simply refused to retool their methods because he felt hollows deserved nothing less than complete destruction.
Yeah, they cooperated. I didn't say they didn't. I'm saying they never fought.
He never fought his Quincy power. As pointed out in this chapter every time it was the Hollow.
What I'm saying is Isshin's side isn't represented in his Zanpakuto avatar/spirit/whatever.
If Old Man was his Quincy blood and Shirosaki was the Hollow, which part was the Shinigami influence?
I don't think Szayel would be able to nullify anyone he got a bit of info on with his techniques just based on this principle.
I only hope we get to see classic Bono/Bach Zangetsu one more time before it's goodbye. The bishounen Ulqiorra look-alike Zangetsu could never compare.
You still didn't answer my first question. Even if you're assuming my definition of "Time allotted" is different from your own, how does he get back to fighting strength?
How else would you propose he get back to fighting strength in the time allotted?
Hitsugaya is one of if not the most popular character in the manga, and it has entered its final arc. If you think...
I think the bankai stealing was just a dramatic device to make the Quincy's initial attack on SS as brutal as it was. In the interim we're currently in I believe Mayuri will finish researching the...
Totally agree. Nimaiya getting shut up was the most likable he's been yet.
Ichigo is always at his best being a badass of few words with that half constipated look on his face.
Hollowfication a unique situation to Urahara?
Perhaps you should turn back the pendulum.
Where did Ichigo get wtf-ported to anyway? Back home?
I'm down for another Isshin or Urahara training session.
Wait a god damn minute. She melted him? Did that happen? How come by the end of the chapter she doesn't seem to be using Bankai anymore? I'm very confused.
Maybe she'll come back as a reanimated Juha Bach-Zombie. Chin up folks.
So... Kenpachi is Demon Lord Piccolo and Unohana is Kami.
If Kenpachi gets stronger by dying and he's absurdly strong as it is I imagine he had to die a shitload of times. Here's hoping we get a...
I'd be curious to know what Mayuri's zanpakuto thinks of him.
So something like... this:
The idea that this guy "created" Zanpakuto is kind of confusing to me. The only case we've seen in the manga of someone acquiring theirs for the first time is Ichigo, and it just seemed to be part of...
Indeed. Corresponding manga page.
In theory, except for the fact that he did explicitly use his Shikai. Rukia also comments this is his technique.
I don't know if it was explicit but in Renji's conversation with Ikkaku he labeled Ikkaku as being the only VC with a bankai and one presumes that if Kaien had achieved bankai Aaroniero would have...
Not much difference in the strength of a punch whether it's broken or not?
I saw plenty of people complaining about Renji seeming too powerful after this chapter. Him being punched with a broken...
I think it's pretty clear it was broken because of the protrusion of the bone. It's beyond even being merely swollen:
We're probably gonna get a slow pace going on. Next stage will probably not even be the beginning of the reforging Bankai process. If I were to venture I guess they'll land in Kirio's palace and eat...
I can't wait for Unohana's battle debut. I'm sure she'll pull Ichigo out of some kind of pinch in his battle with the Vandenreich. Something like this:
This panel takes on new meaning:
I wonder why now Yammamoto kept her cooped up during the invasion. Was he a)Telling the truth and keeping her back as a healer b)...
Urahara seemed to view him as a "necessary evil" while Aizen thought he needed to be eradicated. Again Urahara's response was that the king was a "linchpin" and in no way suggested he was benevolent....
Ichigo blackmail fuel obviously.
I always just assumed Ishida quilted him a blanket.
On second thought:
... Still not seeing it.
Aizen was the complete opposite of objective during his last fight with Ichigo.
Not really seeing this.
It does make a kind of sense. Why were the Shinigami so ruthless in killing the Quincy years ago? The justification was "balance" of souls that would have tipped the world into vague destruction via...
Wouldn't doubt it. So long as they keep catering his tastes he doesn't go berserk.
Urahara referenced Aizen witnessing "it". Maybe this is referring to the Spirit King with an ambiguous pronoun...
Guy feasts on souls. What happens when someone dies in Soul Society? Soul King eats them. Sereitei only exists as a sort of incubator to provide the Spirit King with more delicious meals. It's like...
Clearly the more slick-backed someone's hair is in this manga the more power they're imbued with. Aizen merely neglected to go far enough.
As someone pointed out, Spirit King looks like Aizen level transcended being. More like the Soul Jesus. How does he need to be protected? He looks like he could tear out Juha Bach's soul.
So what you're saying is that the Soul King is Galactus? I'm down.
It's good to know they sell puffy jackets in Soul Society.
I believe this as well. All four of the chosen subjects are precious to Ichigo. While the argument could be made that Byakuya could use some special medical treatment, Rukia and Renji seem relatively...
For those repressing the memory of exactly how explicit those panels got, I'd say these are the two offending pages: (NSFW) #1 #2
Yeah, don't think those ones will be "faithfully restored".
Particularly Renji's case, who was essentially in the same shape as Byakuya is now way back when. Lest we forget
Listen I'm not trying to hate, I read Naruto. I read a lot of manga in fact, and all I'm trying to say is given the field Kubo is pretty progressive in his character portrayals.
Yeah and even presuming we go down that route, Kubo's portrayal black characters...
... fares far better than the typical nonsense mangaka...
If the Spirit King has orange hair, I might just kill someone.
Poll about the "healing" method of Zero division.
Wipes memory, replaces personality, powered by souls, fueled by dead babies etc. etc.
Yeah, the creation of the Ouken seems less important if Aizen could have just built a Spirit Helicopter (fueled by Hinamori's blood) to fly up to the Royal Palace .
I just assume Isshin used Final Getsuga at some point and lived as a human afterward and that Urahara helped him gain back his power over time. Hence why he was with Urahara so much during the...
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.
