Welcome to the Quarter Finals of team fights of the second Bleach Tournament!
Here are the contestants who will battle against each other to advance to the next round in the team bracket:
TEAM 13 TEAM 15
Wow, Team 13 in a stomp imo. As Nodt's the only person on Team 15 that would be remotely threatening, and Orihime can block his arrows or possibly even reject their effects
Am inclined to agree.
Again, team 15 just doesn't appear to have the prerequisites to deal with the massive damage output of Komamura or Love.
Moe has a nice ability, but is just not skilled enough.
Renji is also not strong enough (though, I wonder how he will be following his next training session)
And As Nodt, although threatening, did not show enough in the manga for me to consider him carrying his team through this fight).
As Nodt having no speed feats certainly doesn't help Team 15's case. Moe isn't fast, nor is Renji known for his speed. So in a fight were heavy hitters like Koma and Love (who are NOT slow but still) don't have to worry about speed, all the easier for them to crush.
Also, If Koma's bankai can block As' fear spikes without the fear effects, all the less of a factor it is. The sword at the very least can be used as a massive shield.
For once, Orihime may be useful in a fight - her power can actually provide enough defense against As Nodt's fear thorns and even reject their effect if already applied... in theory, of course. If she can keep As Nodt at bay while Love and Komamura wipe the floor with Renji and Moe... Rules dictate that Stern Ritters can't steal bankai, right? Then Team 13 has some very good chances. Of course, the opposite is also true: As Nodt may strike the whole Team 13 with his thorns at once and make them easy targets for Renji and Moe, but I'll go with 13.
Team 13 stomps. Love is no pushover, his Shikai in mask is one of the strongest Shikais (well, bigass club that shoots fire... xD). Moe and Renji are pretty useless. As weak as Komamura may appear to be, he is pretty strong. His physical ability can crush ANYONE. One hit from his Bankai breaks your bones (Tousen, who had to use instant regeneration). One hit and it's most likely KO. And I'm pretty sure, that fear won't work on Komamura. His personality is too strong. Renji is still a VC. He is on Ikkaku level. They both have Bankais that are not very useful and were broken. And Ikkaku IS weaker than Komamura. Now Renji is in soul palace so he'd get a boost, but we didn't see any of it so I guess we should look at FB arc Renji.
We have a tank, healer and damage dealer. Everything a team could want! If someone gets injured, boom, reject it! Your hand got cut off? Reject it. The fight would end as Team 13 vs As Nodt. And As Nodt wouldn't win against Komamura IMO, let alone all of them.
Team 15 doesn't stand much of a chance. Orihime becomes particularly useful in this match-up with the ability to revoke the effects of Moe or As Nodt, should it ever be necessary, although it probably won't be.
Team 13 in a stomp. As nodt could take komamura indivudally but love as well is a bit too much.
Team 13 have a very good chance because of the Brute power houses and defense and reject abilities of Orihime as well
Orihime rejects fear and luck, then Love and Koma use brute force to destroy team 15. Team 13 all the way imo. (at least for this round)
team 15 gets curb-stomped. team 13 ftw
komamura owns renji and sushigawara without the latter ones even realize it. as nodt's power is still to be explaoined,but yamamoto one-shotted her,buzzbe and nanana without much effort. orihime can deal with her whilst love and komamura stomp the others.
Neither of these teams should've got through the first round. Team 15 especially. Team 13 wins, but team 16 or 14 stomps both,,,
This isn't really the place for that Kazu. In any case, those matches are over and the results have been decided. Correctly, IMO. I have a habit of rooting for the underdog, but both teams here deserved the win. One would have been a close match, and the other would have been a curb-stomp.
