seems like the flashback is already over...
Oh.. i dont realy like this development, but okay... does it mean Uryuu got same kind of power plus ability to manipulate reishi?
He does have those weird eyes and he can see into the future....How the hell did Yama beat him? o.O
Need to see that flashback!
Uryu is there to get Bach closer to the Transcended since they're friends. IIRC, Ichigo actually powers up his close mates.
Then again, it's possible that Uryu & Ichigo both share this power.
Anyway, this flashback shows us a story of jealousy. It used Bazz to show us how Jugram is close to Bach.
Nice chapter, it made me even more curious about Haschwalth and his powers. Also are the elite Sternritter those strong quincies who are born every 200 years?
Maybe Johann Bach knew that Yama would beat him - thus he switched powers with Haschwaldt - lost to Yama - then was brought back later.
This may make sense if he knew that Yama would be weaker in the future, or at least less willing to do anything to win (as he was in the past).
Perhaps this can also be tied to why the Shinigami put restraints on the Soul King's powers?
They thought he was helping his son, or something, and Bach was actually waiting till his father's powers were less before he could actually take power for himself.
As often one might had expected a bit more content from this chapter. But well, the gain in information was ok if you ask me, some of the panels were just a bit boring.
At least the mystery about Yhwachs power begins to unfold more and more. Remember back then when Royd fought against Yamamoto as Yhwach. The captain commander destroyed his sword and then stated that he couldn't fight anymore without it. This could be a hint at Yhwach not being able to form Reishi into weapons. So over the last 1000 years he used Haschwalth to nurture his own power while he nurtured Haschwalths. Or something like that. It explains a lot:
- Uyruu getting such a power boost since he joined Yhwach
- All those Stern Ritter being super powerful Quincy
- Maybe it can even be concluded that Yhwach was the one who actually gave Blut Vene to Ichigo (unconsciously) in their fight
man Yhwach was an ass even back then I feel bad for Bazz ...well at least now we know why Bazz refers to Jugram as the next king
I like the chapter- Enough progress that I didn't feel ripped off. Quick pace.
Jugo's powers are kinda lame tho... he cant make a bow, but he can give and share? what exactly is he giving and sharing? the reishi that he cant form into a bow?
Bazzb's plot twist.. hahaha.. worthless speck of dirt hahahah bach took him down a notch there. hahahah.
At least it's official now that Bach has his multiple eyes now in this flashback
Something is weird, Yhwach being the progenitor of the Quincy and having special powers is okay with me, why do Quincy with powers similar to him (giving and sharing) keep being born every 10-50 years as Bazz B said ?
Hmmm. Interesting, so Jugram is some kind of Yhwach-lite. He can bestow power to a much lesser degree, with the flipside being that whilst Yhwach at his worst is a paralysed vegetable, Jugram was left without base Quincy power. Raises questions though, for one thing why is Jugram that way? Moreover it sounds like he's not even unique, there have been others. Are they just Quincy who get the right genetic cocktail?
Also, what I'm wondering is how this makes Jugram useful to Yhwach. Y gets his powers from the Quincy connected to his soul, so it's not like J feeds him. Or is it? Maybe storing his power in Jugram at night effectively uses him as a conduit, so Jugram is sharing Yhwach's power as well as his own. Who knows... Maybe the connection with Jugram is what allows him to give out Schrifts, somehow.
Anyway, Bazz-B looks like he's getting predictably shot down, but I suspect as he's lying on the floor he'll reveal that the other two rebels are doing the real damage elsewhere.
