why does BAch have to go? I'm starting to think all the quincies have been in that shadow dimension for a thousand years. I think the time is different, for instance like 1 yr in shadow realm is 100 years in the real world. I wonder how hashwald will betray bach or kill him.
Maybe Yhwach wants to kill and replace the Soul King, like Aizen wanted. And then his successor would rule the Quincies, maybe even replacing Soul Reapers and acting as the new Gotei 13 and exterminating Hollows. As a new Soul King, Yhwach might find a way to solve the issue of the Hollows extermination disrupting the balance and threatening worlds.
However, I think Kubo has something much better than this in store.
It's really surprising that Uryuu will be the successor of Bach!!!
I think this ritual is something that will release Bach from the Shadow Realm and at the same time imprison Uryuu.
Thinking of it,Yamamoto wad really a failure: when he was about to fight the fake yhwach, three stern Ritter attacked him but were burnt and owned,they were buzz bee,as nodt and another one. We were sure he had killed them,though buzz bee was seen still alive when the strong ones summoned the "soldat", and now it appears all of them survived.
Whether he went for revenge on an idiotic Sternritter first or displayed his bankai instead of going all out first is another matter, but he didn' waste more energy on those 3-4 Sternritters, and that's exactly the point.
Yama had to kill Juha, or nothing would matter, since no one else at the time would be able to stand up to Juha, Yama was the only one around cable of fighting him, so that took absolutely priority in order to preserve SS.
Whether those Sternritters are laying on the ground toasted or die doesn't matter, as long Yama-Jii wins, if he lost, then it would hardly matter if those Sternritters survived anyway, cause Juha would still be around, and no one would be able to fight him.
So when it all comes down to it, as tiny the margin may be, it wasn't foolish to preserve his energy and time for the head of the snake, cause SS would fall if he couldnt take down Juha, and he knew that.
The non-fake Juha also questioned Yama whether he was exhausted after using his bankai on his fake-self, I don't think that was an ignorant question from Juha, but that Yama actually speneded a wholw lot of his energy in the short time he was in his deadly bankai.
Either way, even if it didn't take that much to kill them for good, Yama-Jii still had to focus on Juha, with everything he had, that goes for mental focus too. He had to win, and block out everything else, whether small flies dies or not, he just had to win that battle, that's all that mattered.
Even if all this is a margin, it does not change the fact that it was kill the head of the snake, or nothing would matter either way.
i have a question, many doubts in my head, about the last chapter, about 3 quincies
i think they were died, but now they appeared SO LIVE
yamamoto didn't killed them?
why they appears now in this CHAPTER?
i think it was a fault of kubo
Plot armorBlut Vene.
which means the Nodt and Nanana is live too
PS Blut Vene Rulezzzz

As to all the complaints about why the SR survived: http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/710/8 I guess it could be something along those lines. Saving strength for the boss fight.
I'm glad my post took the spotlight , I understand what you guys say, but I still disagree: their survival makes meaningless and wrong the discussion between the fake yhwach and Yamamoto, they should have died,or at least the statements about them should have been softer...
We don't know why Yama failed to kill Juhaa 1.000 years ago, but I think it's fair to assume considering how easily Juha killed Yama in current time, even without using his bankai or fullstanding against Yama, that Juha was considerably stronger now than a 1.000 years ago, even if Yama had grown weaker.
That is probably also something Yama would expect of Juha, since judging by Juha's character, he's very analytic and logical thinking, he woulnd't invade SS if he couldn't win, I'm sure Yama knew this.
Therefore running around killing off Sternritters before going for the head of the snake, when every little drop of power and mental focus is required to kill Juha is vital.
Remember Yama wouldn't know that the Sternritters were on limited time.
Also the worst case scenario, that people really seem to forget, is the strategy from real life, called the Nash equilibrium theory.
If Yama started to kill Sternritters to the right and left, who is to say Juha won't start kill Captains to the left and right?
Think about it, isn't it strategically smarter to let equals duke it out, and trusting your men can pull through, rather than having every one killed on the battlefield, and then have a final battle with the two last survivors, Juha and Yama?
Now this is also taken to the exstrme, but I doubt Yama would have liked Juha going after his Captains.
The very fact that the big boss always sit and wait behind his soldiers is exactly that, Nash equilibrium strategy.
To minimize looses of soldiers, you need to have equals fight it out, othervice the leftover stronger soldiers will go for the weak and brutally slaughter them all.
That's why it's vital Yama focusses on Juha.
More on Nash Equilibirum for the interested reader here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nash_equilibrium .
This is btw also how we avoided the Cold War with the U.S.A and Russia escalating into nuclear war.
It's the same here with Yama and Juha, to avoid a brutal slaughter of both sides soldiers.
If Yama started killed Sternritters, then Nash Equilibrium dictates that the most logical strategy for Juha would to intercept Yama, or start killing Captains. It sure as hell would be a bad outcome for SS if he had started killing Captains.
Therefore I'm of the opinion that Yama-Jii did the absolute right choice, to minimize looses.
