The last one was so popular that it gets a sequel.
I think you know what this thread is for, but for those who don't, use this thread to discuss general Bleach-related topics.
Well let's kick this off with a very simple question, Will Ichigo's next power-up be Hollow related or Bankai related, i.e. will old man Zangetsu be his teacher or will hollow ichigo?
Personally, I hope to see Ichigo get smashed to the ground, because I don't see another power-up happening.
I mean, all the backup that's in Hueco Mundo now should be enough to make sure one little Espada doesn't wipe out mister Main character.
But, It's Kubo's world. We'll see what happens.
Well, the last time Ichigo fought his hollow it mentioned Ichigo should just stay alive for a while til next time or something-
It's been like 100 chapters so its fitting.
well i think ichigo's inner hollow will have a different appearance in their next meeting...maybe in true hollow form or with an arrancar release?!!!!
Ichigo is already in HM, which is pretty much Hollow town boarder lining the gates of Hell itself. Ichigo getting a subliminal message from Kurosaki (the name we came up with for the inner hollow) during an inner battle or him trying to take over again. Or have him hint things to him.
If I'm wrong and it does happen to be Zangetsu, then I think that Zangetsu will tell Ichigo something and then when Ichigo thinks he's got the upper hand because time has frozen and he's talking to Zangetsu, Ulq is staring at him and then says something only he would say and then cut Ichigo. I think that's what would happen. It's sounds highly impossible with the Ulq part but many things happen in this manga that throw everyone off from time to time.
Well I doubt Ichigo is strong enough to beat Ulquiorra so hopefully the match will be cut off or something aside from the usual powerup sequence. I doubt Grimmjow is dead-dead yet so maybe he'll try to come in and die in the process (Freeza on Vegeta) and in the event of Ichigo getting stronger, I figured if Chad got a powerup with his hollow powers, Ichigo may have one too. Or maybe Hichigo will emerge seeing how the environment better suits him.
Before I babble anymore, remember when Inoue healed Ichigo and said something about having a hard time healing his injury. Maybe Ulq did that to his own advantage by getting rid of Ichigo's Vaizard one. Menos have priority over other hollows so maybe Ulq can get rid of Hichigo all together leaving room for Ichigo to improve through Zangetsu?
Ive got an idea about the two hanging bodies.
a) They could tie into the Aizen's saying about the betrayal you dont see being even more frightening. Thus, since Mashiro and Kensei were the first two to be taken down and we don't see them again until Shinji and co arrive at the scene, those bodies could be somehow connect with them, if not them at all. He already duped Shinji with a double before, why not again?
b) Since Hollows such as Grand Fisher were attacking Shinigami in SS, perhaps under the orders of Aizen, they captured Shinigami and with Szayel's help, attempted to use the Hogyoku on then like he had on the hollows as an experiment and it may have turned out badly.
c) Reverse-use Hogyoku effects on Shinigami or Arrancar...potentially even human
d) Other version of Jinta and Ururu (we never found out where they came from and theyd both be ppl Ishida and Renji would recognize).
e) dopplegangers of Nemu and Mayuri (why in the hell would he come up with that random ability to dissolve into goo if someone like Aizen didnt come to him by force to demand info on the hogyoku)
Most likely I feel like its B, but thats just me.
^ TBH, I always saw Jinta and Ururu as mod souls that Urahara made later on. That and I always figured that the two bodies were the privion that Grantz took in for research.
yea, i've never suspected the two hanging bodies to be anything particularly significant. most likely Dordoni and yo-yo skank.
Mayuri's "what have we here?" reaction could just be interest.
imagine, if the series continues and everyone gets another fight, that is, Mayuri having the powerful bodies of two privarion espada under his control, fighting for him. like Nemu, she's his creation. maybe if he found their bodies, he could mess with them and their brains and make them his puppets.
Yes but look at the legs and compare them to Dordonni's and Cirucci's. They don't match. They can only be arrancar/shinigami. Aizen wanted to go beyond his limits. What better way than to first see what the hogyoku can do for a shinigami, then go to the arrancar. And if Mayuri can analyze Aizen & Szayel's experiments, it may lead to power advancements for Soul Society to be able to handle Aizen and the Vasto Lordes.
Random extra thought: Aizen's own hogyoku device (used in Pendulum Gaiden) could have advanced in progress (since he was testing it on Kaien) and this could be the latest results.
It's possible that it's two Royal Guard members... Aizen has taken a very serious interest in them and it would make sense that he wants to know as much as possible about them.

Mayuri found the 4th hokage in there.
That's why he hasn't shown up in Naruto yet.
If it does turn out that those two figures are Royal Guard members... that'll be something interesting. But if we're gonna talk about this topic here, it'll probably be moved later on by one of the mods because I think there's a thread on this already. I know this is the hangout thread but I have a feeling that we'll be told about this sooner or later.
