I like Nodt's undead look, although it is a bit too reminiscent of Ulquiorra... but definitely the most interesting since Kirge I think
And combine that with those thorn wings and crown, along with the long hair, he also got a Christ-motif going on as well...
All in all, As became a badass that stepped over even Kirge in vollständig form.
And I must admit, that I have been feeling nauseous and uneasy ever since I saw As´s released state, Everything is spinning...
I think I am going to lay down for a b...
I have to say though, it was a good thing that Kubo didn't let Rukia win. Not because I don't like her, but because that goes to show that a coupe of days (5 to 9 I guess) in the Royal palace won't turn anyone into a super fighter.
Not to be complaining about it again, but Nerves are cells also, so if her cells froze, then so did her optic nerves and she's technically blind (BUT I KNOW, THIS IS FICITION AND IN FICTION EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE, REJATSU FOR THE WIN). Like I mentioned before, it doesn't matter anymore, because we all know Byakuya will rip this guy a new one.
Äs Nödt looked absolutely deadly.
The plot is starting to get a little old and too predictable now and I know we're all having trouble with it. As readers, we want to be entertained and mentally enticed with surprises and thrills upon each panel, and Kubo isn't fulfilling that role as an outstanding author. The work he's doing is good, but it's not leaving us guessing about what's going to happen next because the story is too predictable now.
I will say this though, the chapters are good. The story is entertaining and the characters are enjoyable and in this week's case: fearful. But as a fan, I want more.

And I will add that if Byakuya unleashes some true form of his zanpaktou, I'm going to rip someone apart because you'd think that he'd already have his true form. I don't need a "true form" from Byakuya. I just want him to DOMINATE like he does and be the coolest BAMF in Soul Society alongside Zaraki.
So vollstandig can defy science.
Rinse and repeat!? Talk about hyrbridization of previous characters and make one hell of a horrific one.
Rukia failed despite the RGT...
Byakuya comes to save the day...
So any guess as to what is the true name of Senbon Sakura Kageyoshi?
side note: I would love to see As Nodt in vollstandig fight Yachiru Unohana in ban kai..

i don't like how rukia losse like that. what absolute zero? she even didn't manage to froze her opponent completely
But I feel Unohana would teach As Nodt to fear something besides Bach just by opening up her hair and looking at him the way she looked at Kenpachi.
I really wonder, considering Kenpachi's and her nature, is there anything those two really fear (besides like, having nobody else on the planet to fight)?

As Nodt's Vollstandig is creepy as a character in Castlevania also i just noticed that Byakuya's zanpakto has no blade did he use Zenbon Sakura ?
also did the RG lie to Ichigo? i mean Byakuya got there faster than Ichigo i think RG lied to Ichigo so that Ichigo will arrive last
Okay, Rukia's fears. If we study them, I think they will be very important in uncovering mysteries.
Lets start from left to right. We see Inoue flashback as a fear. In that flashback rukia was wearing her yellow dress from early in the manga and has her hand on inoue's face in a consoling kind of way. But why was that regarded as a fear? Quite possibly inoue was talking about ichigo, and rukie felt that she might lose ichigo one day to inoue. It's clear that there are feelings between ichigo and rukia however she's never proclaimed her feelings towards ichigo which I think was a smart move by kubo however, this is the last arc and we gotta start somewhere.
Also a part of Rukia's fears we see her older brother. And by his hair style it was byakuya from the soul sociaty arc. I think it was from the time Rukia's execution was about to take place and he was watching from below. She might have felt like he discarded her, like she was dead to him, a sense of abandonment and that feeling rocked her spine in a way she could never forget.
Now if you focus below Rukia's feet you will see that Ichigo and rukia are there which is another fear.
The right side of the panel, we see ichigo with his first Shinigami uniform and that is another fear. Perhaps at that point she feared for his life? He was in over his head back then taking on captains and risking his life almost every chapter.
Below that is ichigo with his second shinigami garb staring down at Rukia - another fear. I don't know what that could mean but her fears are filled with ichigo more so than her brother.
I was hoping we would learn more about these fears as I think Kubo didn't choose random images.
As Nodt was terrifying! I love his design, and his power.
Byakuya, those broad shoulders, that arabian like outfit, splitting fear in half. What a total badass.

As Nodt's vollstandig face is my new avatar!
It was easy to predict that Byakuya will come back to end his previous fight. I just wonder if he also learn his "true name of zan" in palace or just Kubo will stop with that cheap power up and show us normal fight without one-hit KO.
Also, i noticed the fact that Byakuya was absent in SS so he didn't use urahara pills so he still shouldn't have BK and As Nodt in this way shouldn't be able to use Vollstanding...
