Yes, I want more Royal Guard action
Yes, I want to see the Soul King
Yes, I want the Quincies to invade it
Yes, I want Aizen sneaking in and be the Soul King
No, because it has been boring thus far
No, because it's not relevant to the actual fight
I don't care much, Sado can become Soul King if he wants
If people can see this a great chapter I pity you all sure the drawings are great but no real plot development if you ask me maybe this chapter is to make things go slow again after a fast pace chapter this past few weeks
This is going to be interesting. It's not that normal for Ichigo to give this kind of reassurance on just about anything. And to add something, Kenpachi haven't showed up yet.
We are 555 chapters into Bleach and people are still complaining about how he uses big panels? If anything, this arc has progressed faster than most of the other arcs.
Also, people fail to realize that if Kubo compressed this chapter, it would not have the same intensity it had right now. Kubo does not do that for every chapter but when he does it, it simply means he believes it would have a bigger impact.
There were quite a number things that were shown in this chapter.
1. Ichigo's new getup. Did people notice that his shinigami robes inside are white? That could be Kubo referencing BLEACH (white).
2. Ichigo's character has changed. More calm and composed. He even seems confident that he can make a difference once he arrives.
3. The Invasion has been going on for 3 hours now.
4. All Vollstandig's vary from one another depending on the user's ability, I suppose.
5. Bambietta is, supposedly, overpowered if she uses her final form.
6. Vollstandigs are, supposedly, quite stressful to use.
The chapters that were boring were the ones where Toshiro and Soi Fon were fighting. Those were boring cause Kubo just focused on those 2 fights for like 5 chapters. (Urahara's role was amazing though)

And look...manga is not just about fast pace or rushing the plot ahead...there's art, there's characterization, there are fun moments and conversations, there are little hints to Ichigo's powerup...a chapter won't become bad just because the pace slowed down...I honestly miss the humor in this manga, and I appreciate it when Kubo inserts light moments in it...it's a good contrast to what happens in SS right now, and how dire the situation looks...
A chapter can't have it all, or when that happens, it's really a rare occasion...
so the chick activated volstandig and it automatically nullified shinji's shikai or what?
im surprised so many people disliked this chapter? dude the real action starts now. Plus, anything is better than toshiro fanservice.
So let me ask you is this chapter great? On what grounds you can say it is great because I already mentioned things I don't like and I am not bias on rating this and really like Bleach this arc where as I dislike Naruto this past few years ^^
For me the past few chapters pace is really fast that it seems like Kubo is rushing things and like what I said this chapter might be a chapter to make things go slow again did I like the super slow development? No that is why I rate this Bad so rating this chapter Bad because I don't like the this super slow chapter a bad thing.
I don't want to convince you guys that this is a bad chapter or not because it is my preference and you can't convince me this is a great chapter because for me the best thing I can rate this is just a normal chapter.

Simply read what other people after me posted and you'll get your answer.
Still curious where the other captains and members from Hueco Mundo are....
I'm just left speechless with the number of negativity being spread nowadays regarding every single thing that doesn't satisfy their pleasure and being dismissive about the chapter being bad right away.
I thought this only existed in the Naruto thread, but here too?
If none of the manga is doing no service and enjoyment to the ones constantly complaining, then why read them at all ?
Do yourself a service and instead of making the ones who are actually enjoying it feel uncomfortable, post something that'll be worthy of discussion or in a discussion manner to make everyone able to contribute in some ways.

Well don't really want to argue etc but Bleach really this past few weeks pale in comparison with Toriko's development maybe this is why the bar for my taste is high so if you guys like this chapter then so be it don't want to argue anymore on how I think this chapter is . But I like Bleach this arc but this chapter isn't really my taste so peace
Hm, Ichigo's blades now have bandaging on their hilts. I wonder if this was something he did while in that gravity place we saw Rukia and Renji in, or whether the zanpakto did it on their own. Zangetsu's initial release had the bandaged hilt as well, it might be nothing but they weren't shown like this before.
Overall it was a decent chapter, we may even get a few other battles shown prior to Ichigo showing up. There were like 7 Volstandig activated at the end of the last chapter, 4 of which we seem to know about at this point. With any luck we'll see what forced the other 3 to activate theirs, it may possibly be a fight with a masked vizard, or someone we've not seen has activated their bankai.
