Not much to go on yet - I am guessing 'thin ice' is going to be something like the one shot mirage technique he used against Halibel. Something to confuse the enemy with reflections into thinking that he hit Toshiro when he didn't (like a weaker version of Aizen's illusions as it only effects the sight).
it looks like the only good page on this chapter will be Toshiro's new powers Omeda? not so much
"Thin ice" - doesn't sound awesome at all. Here, how about some "0 Kelvin ice"? :/ So Toshiro can create shields now.
I poo pooed the thin ice before, seems I was perhaps wrong. I actually quite like this Toshiro Rangikyu combo tag-team. It is an interesting method to get past a more-powerful (perhaps) enemy. It is a nice way to become strong without his bankai.
I am hoping that this break enabled the author to find other exciting ways to get around the lost bankais.
In fact, I will go so far as to say I wasn't even that annoyed by the Omeda business.
Too quick to judge as usual
Not a terrible chapter
Standard fight chapter, but at least we now know for certain that they still have their shikai.
Naruto just used Yggdrasil + Apple of eden as reference and now
Bleach use a tech similar to Naruto's HAKU? where haku can use the ice mirrors to attack ?
Puh that was quite a short and unexciting chapter. Hitsu Tag team with Matsumoto, only to show a new tactic to defeat "the heat". His victory was predictable.. But now to Omaeda... Will he go Bankai to protect his little sister?
Now would be the time to shine for him.. I hope he doesnt die, I like him ^^
Personally I liked this chapter a lot...a not so drawn out fight, with a very cool combo tactic...my only beef is that we didn't see other characters shown as well...I like the style where multiple fronts are shown within one chapter, and one gets resolved quickly. Then the next one introduces a new front and finishes another. This happened in this chapter, but only with 2 fronts, so it was a bit disappointing and short...
But I feel Kubo is in a pretty good and creative mood, so I'm looking forward to future chapters
I waited this long for this crap?! lol thin ice? really? what a total buzz kill. Why waste pages on omaeda? I don't see the point.
It seems that Rukia's shikai is more badass icetype zanpaktou than Hitsugaya's ; o In early chapters didn't hitsu shikai had a long chain?
Since when did Soi Fong's name changed into Sui Feng? Oomaeda sure have his hands full right now, the lone Vice captain facing a Steirnritter.
Sternritter H reminds me too much like Renji, seemingly powerful at one point just to get owned quite fast. Even though I find it highly unlikely he's one and done just in one chapter (not to mention it doesn't seem like he's using his full strength yet), I really hope somehow this is a sign of Hitsugaya having the upper hand in this battle.
Applause for Hitsu for not falling flat on his face despite only using his shikai and ... is it just me or do I sense a love replacement for Rangiku in Hitsu ?
Because it's interesting to see how he is gonna cope with someone that stole his captain's bankai and is pretty strong himself already too.
How dare an ice zanpakataou users might efficiently use his only remaining power, how dare he!
