Wow. For being quite decent in her Quincy training Masaka killed that thing.. completely badass!!
How on earth did that ridiculously weak Grand Fisher Hollow kill her?
What exactly is she doing? Is she hugging the hollow? It doesn't seem like it wounded her... It's also interesting to see, that Aizen didn't PLAN everything so far, Masaki appearing totally caught him off guard, too.
The thing about the hollow is quite interesting. We're getting nearer to understand Ichigo's Zanpaktou. So "White" is a hollow made out a Shinigami's soul. Like Aizen somehow made a Shinigami's soul become hollow, not a human soul. The question is, is that "White" only similar to Hichigo, or is he the same? Maybe Masaki absorbed his essence with her move at the end of the chapter. Maybe Zangetsu is the Shinigami whose soul was made into that hollow. However, seing how old and powerful Zangetsu is, his absence must have been noticed by Soul Society. Maybe his soul was wandering around for a long time and Aizen hollowfied it, later Masaki absorbed it an inherited it to Ichigo when she gave birth to him. So all in all very interesting chapter. Made me even more curious about Isshins Bankai. When Ichigo used Final Getsuga Tenshou he first converted all his reiatsu into physical power. This seems related, like one can't bear the FGT without immense physical body power. Isshin's Bankai could be a lesser form of Final Getsuga Tenshou.
So we know how Masaki and Isshin met, still we need to know how Isshin lost his powers and left Soul Society.
Who cares if Ichigo is dumb or not, this was a solid chapter. Felt short without much to read but still great to see Isshin able to use his blood to 'fuel his fire'.
Good chapter. Masaki was really badass with her "I gooooooot you"
Still I like Isshins Shikai... I wonder what his Bankai can do...
Aizen looked a bit... too happy... oô
Furthermore Kanama acted like he was the boss...

Aizen's curiosity was amusing. And it was nice to see some more action from Isshin. However, Masaki stole the chapter. She seems like she was a bit of a bad-ass.
And about when he was displayed dum? Well his first meeting with menos grande where his plan was to just chop it from legs to head.
Ichigo got absolutly do not used hes head in fights..you just look at what Masaki and Isshin did, they used their head and adapted to opponents fighting style...all Ichigo do is "bankai+getsuga tenshou" nothing more. Not even once.
Well...noone...im just abit dissapointed.Originally Posted by freshseth83
I think against Gin, Ichigo displayed some battle sense. Gin complemented him on it as well.
As for the chapter, I wonder what kind of Bankai (and how Aizen knows about it) Isshin has! Seems like his blood can be used as an incendiary for his shikai. So perhaps his 'strength' is blood related and that could be something his Bankai abilities rely on. Isshin hinted at it himself in this chapter.
misaki is a bad-ass isshin breath fire O.o i was like woah there.
the white clad in black armor totally fits with ichigo's character; he wears shinigami clothes "black" but he's a quincy by blood "white"
Hollow has target hollowfication in it.
It bit Masaki.
Now Masaki should get hollowfied thus serving as the origin to Hichigo.
Hmm did masaki let the hollow hit her to trap it? If thats the case it prob infected her and was passed on through her first child to explain why Ichigo has that hollow look. If it didn't hit her it prob has some chance to do something without her knowing to go in her.
edit ^ Yes indeed.
if Ichigo was actually smart perhaps the manga would end too quickly
I wonder if a dumb hero is actually preferred since there's so many
book smart doesn't mean he's smart everywhere
