he did get saved by fanboys, byakuya honestly shove died. he was capped as a character, we saw the max of his powers and know his background. his death wouldve be huge in the story. it would make rukia hopefully head o the kuchiki and put her in his shoes to overcome and surpass him eventually. it also wouldve been great to see how ichigo, renji and rukia handled his death, it wouldve made huge character development and spurred their growth to new heights with rukia eventually surpassing byakuya when she kills as nodt
the fanboys saved byakuya the same way the killed the fullbring arc. they cried and bitched, making bleach drop to garbage rankings forcing kubo to make some super extravagant super re-introduction for all the captains and ichigo getting his powers back in the same recycled way we saw beore.
fans have more power than you think. since this is weekly it can change at any time, all it takes is one speed bump
We also saw him develop 'Goukei, Senbonzakura' in the course of the manga, so he has been improving, and there is no reason to claim he is 'capped.'
Very respectfully, I must completely disagree with you.
Fan's do have some influence, but they cannot make a manga 'jump ship' so quickly. Where is your proof that any such thing happened? Fans griping is not proof. Proof would be some sign of an admission by Kubo or someone in publishing.
just imagine kenpachi's reiatsu boost if he went to the kings world. Why does the captain commander have to go to the human world went he can easily send a messenger..
Can you post the link where I can read this in full? It looks like once of those books released by the author. Please and thank you!
Silly rabbits. Byakuya was wished back with the Dragonballs. Now every one gets a power-up.
All of you saying that Rukia is more attractive than Orihime or Matsumo is basically saying that you find Emma Watson more attractive during Harry Potter 1 than Emma Watson now.
Shunsui appearing befor Ichigo's friends could mean anything right now. But I think it is more of a courtesy/respect for the guy who they believed "chased off" Bach and his minions.
As a matter of fact, she was more attractive during Harry Potter 1.
I bet anything that the time is different as well in order to give them an even bigger advantage. some hyperbolic time chamber crap. I can just see it!
Later stages will be for their training, And most important part will be played by Namya (Afro sword smith) who ll forge new swords and fix their Bankai problem i guess.
And Honestly speaking No idea what was that stage of Shutara was for :S
Plenty of time for a change of mind if you ask me.
Now then, the chapter in which Senbonzakura is seen disintegrating is indeed 512, and that is too late for Kubo to have changed his mind since then so your argument might ve valid. It is true that mangakas give the manuscripts to the editors way before they are published, so by the time 512 was published he probably already submitted 515.
Which doesn't mean he didn't have a change of mind while, say, drawing 514 or something. I mean, the rage was epic, and I didn't see what happened in Japanese twitters but it must have been huge.
Personally, I don't understand what's so different about Renji "dying" back in SS and then coming back to life thanks to Dragon Balls Hanataro. The again, SS arc is untouchable, huh.
