i swear its the same every week... specially this one! we get absolutely nothing and just teased the fuck out of curiosity of what will happen next
pls kubo STAHP trolling us so hard.
So, from the looks of it all of the one-on-ones between the shinigami and quincy just ended. Too sad some of the captains didn't get some love. But maybe that'll happen once the entirety of SS goes against Bach.
I'm actually happy about the current development, it saved us about 40 chapters of battle.
So Juha will be able to go to kings world since his quincy blood is technically in Ichigo, who was just there. So my guess is that Juha immediately knows everything that ichigo experienced in kings world
It seems like we actually might get some development next week.
Aside from that, the transition from a 1-on-1 battle to an 8-on-1 battle was quite drastic.
So Bach is going to invade the realm of the Soul King.
And Ichigo will be stuck fighting 8 sternritters.
This made me wonder about one thing. Even though, Ichigo is part shinigami, his power is also Quincy and Hollow. So, why would he even be allowed in the Royal Palace to train, irregardless of what happen with Soul Society so far. I always thought, because of the war that occurred between the Shinigami and Quincy that Quincies wouldn't be allowed in the Royal Palace and close enough to the Soul King.
I'm thinking that, there's more to that history between the two factions and Ichigo is indeed the "key" to all this. I'm waiting for reinforcements to show up to take on the remaining Sternritter. Particularly, Grimmjow.
I believe it's time for them to arrive... but It also be kinda boring if the captains are left without showing AGAIN (Kyoraku, Ukitake, Shinji), Kenpachi was ok, and Byakuya is now a real "?".
Ichiro indifference to face 8 SR was pretty good, but for the rest it felt almost unnecessary this chapter.
Ywach is going to RR with only Ishida and Hasch? Funny if they really can take it with only them..
PD: it felt like Buzz-B is actually a Big mouth LOL

Whatever that overpower is, the 4 Royal Guards will have to tank it.
What if Bach, Ishida and Hasch won? Then they will have to prevail against the Soul King at weakened states.
Seems like Bach wants to kill his SR and take their power no?
I wonder if Shinji and the others got melted by Buzz
Haha, I've just imagined the manga to end with Soul King oneshotting Juha Bach. This would be so troll.
So honestly, what is this crap? It's like all the Stern Ritter are in "buying time for Bach to reach Royal dimension" mode. He can't even be there because he has that Schattenreich time limit?
And how does the key to royal dimension (even if Juha Bach has it) work, if the transportation can not be used frequently?
Well, I guess if Ichigo goes Bankai and all out he can even kill all those 8 at once. How long does it take before we're finally get rid of Buzz-B? What the hell is the rest of Soul Society doing? This arc started so good, but now it is getting completely strange! There are so many questions yet open?!
What is Urahara doing standing around in the research department?
Is Ukitake still bathing??
Does the new Captain Commander do ANYTHING? There was no reaction since Haschwalth left him.
Is Yoruichi still a character in this manga? Or does she not care?
What's with the Fullbringers?
What is all that "fixing the distortion between realms" (the task of the Visored in Karakura Town) about?
Why does Kubo tease Grimmjow and then lets him stay in Hueco Mundo?
What do the two Dad's do? They have to get involved in this!
Maybe because of the invasion of the Royal Dimension Soul Society has to flee to Hueco Mundo and everything will end there. I'm currently thinking that with all this setting at the moment, the arc will still last for a long time. I really think that Soul Society will lose for now and needs to evacuate Seiretei. They'll flee to Hueco Mundo for now and meet up with any survivors. There, Ichigo will get trained in the way of the Quincy by Ishida's father and (ok, now I'm getting ridiculous) in the "way of the Hollow" by Grimmjow. Ichigo will then become a complete being, perfect hybrid and the new spirit king. After humiliating Bach of course.
Well... Holy crap that escalated quickly.
I did not see that one coming. And I have to say that this looks more and more like a even battle to me between the stern ritter and Ichigo now.
But Giselle´s power now got interesting as it gives a lot of clues about what she did to Bambietta...and oh my god... what if they split her apart and pulled her inside them? That would be one way to interpret Giselle´s "So sad when you´re not with us." part.
Anyway, it´s nice to see Colonel Quincy again, been quite a while now, no trace of Askin but that´s for later.
This is seriously accelerating here... Shinji might be dead... If Kubo would actually kill him off-screen that is...
So the question is if the Stern ritter will co-operate or try sabotaging for each other in the coming fight and... did Bazz-B just go vollstandig? I see a halo and really thin wings...
So... how many stern ritter is left that isn´t taking part of this fight? Except for Askin. Since it feels like there aren´t that many people left of their troops...
I´ll make a fast count...
Alive: A, B, D, G, H, P, T, U, Z.
Dead: E, F, I, J, K, O, Q, R, S, V, Y.
Unknown: C, L, M, N, W
Death toll: 12
Remaining troops: 13
Well look at that... We are running out of Stern Ritters.
This war might be a lot shorter than I first thought it would be...
What is the reinforcements doing?!
Half of the quincy elite is gone already! now is the time to strike!
But I guess they´re waiting until Ywach is gone from the battlefield first.
I don´t know what to make about Ichigo warning Candice like that and telling her to dodge.
This is war right? No reason to warn the opponents...(He for sure didn´t gave Shaz Domino a fair warning before he utterly slaughtered the guy in the first invasion...)
But I guess it´s just Kubo´s way of showing how though the Stern Ritters are since Candice took it with full force and only lost an arm... But still, why, Ichigo?
And about Ywach... I can see the Balance come to great use in the royal dimension to "even the odds" between Ywach and Uryu in a battle with the Royal Guard, but still, what is Uryu supposed to do up there? Or is Ywach perhaps planning to take over him through the power of the Soul King to gain a body that won´t regress to a powerless state as things are now?
Could that be the meaning of successor, I can´t tell...
Overall, prediction for the next chapter...
Stern Ritter vs Kurosaki, the ultimate battle followed by reinforcements from everyone else the soul society have left. (Fullbringers, Arrancars, Orihime and Chad and Urahara...) All of them to fight all the Stern Ritters. And a cliffhanger in the end like always off course.

I don't get it. Ichi tells his enemy to avoid his attack, just after he plays around with them? What is going on? Did he get brainwashed? This is war, so kill you enemies. The white clothe nazis killed the shinigamis, so what's the problem?
even mohawk man, their own ally, gets more action than Ichi does and they are suppose to be on the same side!
