And I made a mistake, I already have Bad Shield United in eng.
I'm looking for :
Ultra Unholy Hearted Machine - bonus in Volume 2 Zombie powder
Rune Master Urara - bonus in Volume 3 Zombie powder
The page before that, if what Ukitake said is true could be pretty interesting in terms of the latest arc. Ichigo did say that his badge lost it's power so it was visible to others, however when he regained part of his reaitsu he was able to hear communication through his badge. It's possible that the badge itself acts like a GPS system to keep a check on the substitutes as well as allowing them quick access to using their shinigami powers. it's kinda a double edged sword if you plan on using your shinigami powers for unjust reasons.
I think Ishida may have been a little cautious of it cause of the skull on it, however I think Rukia's had the same design so he may have just been overworried about. Though here's a theory, perhaps at one time shinigami and quincy were actually allies and they gave them the badges as a means of showing peace between the two, however the true use of the badges was to be able to locate them so they could eliminate them with ease. Since the badge does seem to have communication abilities I think they may have tricked the Quincy to keeping contact through the badge.
If a quincy's power is in their human body then it is possible to say that in spirit form they would be powerless. It's quite possible that this shinigami badge can force anyone out of their body even if they don't have shinigami powers, actually it's quite possible it's the same device as Rukia's glove and Urahara's cane. It's very possible the badge was used as a means to make the quincy's powerless then cut the chain to their body so they could eliminate them with ease.
On a somewhat related note though, I do recall Ginjo seemed a tad edgy as Ichigo put the badge to his ear which may mean that he is aware that the badge can be used as a communication device. so if Ginjo was truly evil one would think that the shinigami would have already dealt with him since he's had to of had this badge on him for quite some time now. It would seem rather reckless to have a person hold onto a badge if they aren't worthy of said badge.
I still feel like the reason he felt edgy was cause he was afraid that his cover might be blown. His reaction felt more like one that was aware that you can hear communication through the badge. I'm also pretty sure that if a substitute shinigami did die on duty they would act swift in retrieving the badge since if it was in the hands of a person with powers they would be able to push people out of their souls and it would prolly allow hollows an easier means of eating souls.
Sorry, but I don't know where post this.
The Titekubo's oneshots (Ultra Unholy Hearted Machine, Kokumashi Urara and Bad Shield United) scanlated or are scripts to translate them? I really want to read them, but if they aren't translated into english, maybe y could translate them (very slowly, obviously).
So when yammy shot urahara with the fist bala blast. Was that urahara's only time getting hit or was he using the portable gigai then too?
i know none of the bala storm hit him, but what about the first bala? that confused me
Now I know that what I'm about to ask has absolutley no relation the either the past chapter, or the upcoming one, but can someone please tell me what 'plotkai' means?
suspension of disbelief, it's called "plotkai" in Bleach, a play on the word "bankai". For example the ice-clone incident of Hitsugaya or Momo replacement incident of Aizen are considered by many to be examples of "plotkai".
What is the chapter and or episode where rukia explain to ichigo that hollows reside in 'a world between soul society and the living world' with her little drawings, which we later learn ends up being hueco mundo?

Is this it?
I was wondering why garganta's couldn't be made from hueco mundo to SS seeing as they can be made to the living world.
it's strange because yoruichi says the flowing current in the dangai is to keep intruders and hollows out which made me think why can't they just use garganta unless dangai is the only way? yet they don't need the dangai to go to the human world.
we have seen some hollows in soul society(the one that ate kaien for example), etc, but then i realized aizen experimented on it. It's not much of a stretch that it came from hueco mundo though seeing as aizen was recruiting espada in hueco mundo back when he was still a captain.
and we know they used to have that execution pit filled with hollows.
Basically I'm trying to understand all the portals in bleach and their rules:
-senkaimon w/ hellbutterfly is a straight bright passage to the opening of the doors on the other side as shown in episode 138-139 where rukia runs to the living world to help out in the espada fights.
-senkaimon w/o hellbutterfly kicks you into the dangai. senkaimon can't go to hueco mundo? garganta mandatory?
-garganta to and from hueco mundo, can also open up a garganta into the dangai like Ulq did
-but yet, cannot use dangai to go to hueco mundo even though ulq went from hueco mundo, to the dangai though a garganta. strange seeing as they are in the same area between SS and living world.
