I think, As Nodt is hyped up. Can't wait for him to die.
How many Sternritters are left anyways....?. Anyone wish to figure this out.

Äs Nodt isn't a powerful SternRitter, Kubo made him useless without his fear ability. you know what else Kubo did? he discarded Blut vene, just like he did with Hierro.
Okay chapter this week. I agree with most, Rukia got played on the Bankai debut. At least Byakuya gets his come back next week. Where's Zaraki at?.

Anyway... As Nodt is more Hollow-like than most Hollow. lol

Other than that, basic Quincy abilities are of too little use against a Captain-class Shinigami. It'd be too much of an ask if Quincy were supposed to defeat their enemy who are using their trump cards while not using their own.
also, his blood froze? sure his blod froze, that is, only the blood that was near the cut area, that is why it didnt flow out of the wound, otherwise rukia would not have needed to strike nodt again after that would she?
so if she only froze the blood near the wound then if she cuts all of the surface of his body leaving no apearent deep cuts then she only cut the surface:
most likely upon being cut the first time As switched from blut arterie to blut vene in order to try and stop her from freezing compleetly, thus her following strikes did not cut him much, but froze him outside due to the temperature of her sword, but since the blade did not go very deep it did not freeze him compleetly, thus he was able to think and activate vollstandig.

And there isn't anything to suggest she could speedblitz most top-tier opponents or that her speed is even above that of the average captain, As Nodt barely moves and relies almost entirely on his Fear to do the work and whips out Blut if necessary, the first instance of As Nodt using any serious speed was after releasing Vol when he suddenly appears behind her.[/quote]
Oh, so now the lack of reaction from As Nodt means Rukia isn't that fast? The only thing he could do was look at her when she already cut him. And in the second time he didn't even see her attack coming. He started to fear, but disregarded that fear because his fear towards Yhwach is bigger.
You do realize, her ability isn't being dead for 4 seconds, but freezing everything around her to absolute zero or more? Hitsugaya's ability seems pretty weak compared to her Zanpakuto. "not letting fear being absorbed" is not the only way to use her ability. Earthquake to make opponent lose balance, stopping his blood and freezing him to absolute zero, making him completely defenseless. But Mr. Asspull Kubo can get out of it allright. Cang Du can activate his Vollstandig while being frozen by Hitsugaya, As Nodt can think while being frozen to absolute zero despite saying, that Rukia should die from her body being just below zero. >.<Quote:
Byakuya didn't do it in a battle. He did it before the battle started, As Nodt did nothing to avoid being hit. And after the battle started, he couldn't even penetrate As's Blut.Quote:
I didn't even take Yamamoto into account. But yeah, I forgot about Kenpachi. So it makes two of them. Only Kenpachi and Shunsui did it during a fight, not greetings. Boss Yamaji is too strong to be compared with captains. :v
