Early spoilers are a bad sign. Will there be another 2 week break? I hate when it happens.
Anyway... Goddamnit, no Hueco Mundo and no revelations who the fuck gathered with Urahara, Orihime and Chad. Fuck! Oh well, instead we'll be getting a fanservice RenRuki moment. I've been thinking recently that they'll be the ones meeting with Osho instead of Ichigo - maybe he will teach them Kido. And Senjumaru is quite a reprobate, much like Mayuri. Are they related?
And... Okay, the part about Tatsuki and others HAS to be fake.
Uwaaaah! *immodest orgasm*
Everything turned out to be true, and more! There are so many familiar faces that I'm not even mad Kubo still isn't showing us Grimmjow. I think now I know what that breach was Hiyori saw earlier. It's not Nakk Le Vaar's power - two worlds, World of the Living and Soul Society, are about to collide because of the Quincies exterminating Hollows and disrupting the balance! And now the Visoreds are going to fix it somehow. Good to see they are doing something useful, too.
We've got Osho's real name and title - Eyeball Monk... Whatever that means. That doesn't sound like a Kido expert, but I hope he is one. Shutara made new clothes for Rukia and Renji, though I'm not sure why they would need them. Byakuya has recovered... About time. I hope he gets to visit Nimaya, hear what he has to say about stolen bankai. Maybe it's possible to regain it by training for it all over again.
Kyoraku meets with Ichigo's friends... Shit just got real, I tell you.
loooool i think it mjay be that ichigo may have lost some of his memories after his intense training or he isn't going to come back due to the nature of the battle he will either be victorious or died - something Shunsui Kyōraku would say
Even Shunsui presence in it wasn't enough to redeem it.
ichigo is a complete shinigami now, and is officially part of SS which means he can no longer live in the human world unless he was exiled.
I'm so confused by this chapter. How is it that we've just skipped over Shutara, and suddenly moved on to Osho's training? I guess we're going to get a better look when Ichigo meets up with her. What exactly is Hiyori doing? And why was it necessary for Shunsui to come to speak to Ichigo's friends, surely he has more pressing matters. Wouldn't it have made more sense to send someone else who wasn't tasked with command of the Gotei 13, someone who knows Ichigo a bit better wouldn't have hurt. This chapter was just everywhere.
Weird chapter feels like a reality distortion field. Nothing connects, seems like a random filler chapter and there's even a small flashback. For a moment seems like Aizen has got to do with this or this is a fake chapter lol.
Looks like Hiyori will be doing some work for SS alongwith friends and sisters of ichigo.
Over all OK chapter
Nice to finally see Hyori again, but what was that at the beginning of the arc, did Kubo forget about that Gargantuan(w/e) looking thing!?
So Ichigo became a full Shinigami with a human body, and a variety of powers from other beings, how would you that stop him from being a substitute Shinigami, that piece of wood?
We see Karin and Yuzu again, how about we fucking see what that nonsense about Karin being a Shinigami was, did he forget that too?
Heal reiatsu/sleep - Nutrition/eat/boosting reiatsu - come in terms with your weapon/soul/zanpakatou - clothes ideal/comfortable for combat - control over reitasu/capacity?

Not much happening in this chapter...I'm a little disappointed, but meh!!!
I think Shunsui's news is going to be one of the following;
- Ichigo is the Soul Society's greatest warrior, so he's been selected to take down Juhabach; for this reason, it's highly probable that he's going to die.
- Due to Ichigo's strength, he's actually the one who's been selected as Yamamoto's replacement, whilst Shunsui keeps his seat warm until he's completed his training.
- Ichigo is going to have to kill Uryuu, due to him being selected as the successor of the Juhabach.
Another crackpot theory is that Shunsui is actually Aizen (who has escaped the Soul Society after being freed during the Vandenreich's attack) using his perception-altering powers, and he's going to manipulate Ichigo's friends somehow into either turning against him, or falling into some kind of trap.
I think Kyoraku is going to offer those three to become Substitute Soul Reapers. I mean, Ichigo will be really busy fighting Vandenreich, so Karakura Town is left without anyone to protect it from Hollows.
So much for Kenpachi and Byakuya "not being able to continue their duties as captains"
I'm fine with Kenpachi still being able to fight, but the Byakuya thing still sucks. His death would've had a lot more weight on the story, but I'll shut up before people get mad again.
Other than that I don't really know hot to feel about the chapter. It's cool that Kubo shows some old characters but again with that stupid, completely unnecessairy cliffhanger. As if Shinsui is going to tell those guys something so devestating that it'll change the entire plot. He's going to tell them some lie or even the truth, but everyone knows that Ichigo will see them again, so why make it so dramatic.
Maybe I just give to little of a crap about Kubo's writing to understand why likes to draw shocked people so much.
