Really? Getsuga Tensho? Didn't Ichigo do that more than enough, now we've gotta have it from someone else? The prospect is neat, I wont deny that, but I would rather have seen an attack speciffic to "Cross of Scaffold". Wasn't his sword damaged when he was fighting the lucky dude anyway? I suspect that Ichigo is probably nearly as strong as he was post Dangai, but he probably won't go Bankai because he'll use some new ability of his Zanpakto, which would make this whole exersize in stretching out what could have been a couple of chapters into several months worth of chapters, into something worthwhile. Also they haven't actually alluded to the fact that it may not be Zangetsu also.. Personally I think it is, I just think when his hollow and zanpakto spirit merged that is what caused his sword to change, and this is simply his shikai state of that. Wouldn't it be something if we learned that this wasn't his shikai at all and he had a shikai state to this weapon!?:-)
I find this interesting if Ichigo and Ishida don't know what to do as they fight Ginjo. It supports an observation that I thought about ever since Ichigo got his shinigami powers back.
Ichigo has always had insane riatsu and I'm wondering if this isn't just a more powerful version of the way he was at the beginning of the series. If he doesn't know how to deal with Ginjo it could indicate that he only has the ability and form as he is. Old Ichigo wouldn't hesitate to go bankai or pull out his hollow mask.
We don't even know if his zanpaktou is still zangetsu or if he can even use bankai or hollowfy. Having just had shinigami powers restored, it may take him a while to relearn those abilities.
I loved "Bleach" more than any other manga, period. But god it sucks now. I dont like the idea of Ginjou being on equal footing with Ichigo. It should be impossible as far as i'm concerned unless when Ichigo lost his shinigami powers he lost the hollow side for good too. So we are seeing Ichigo with (fullbring + borrowed shinigami powers), instead of Ichigo with (fullbring + hollow + his own shinigami powers). And what makes it suck even more is that Ginjou can do getsuga tensho as well. I feel like im reading Naruto cuz they are starting to spam getsuga tensho like its sharingan. God i hope Aizen breaks out of jail.
@biggchiefmo I loved Bleach more than other manga too - except One Piece & FMA. It just seemed to get out of hand when Ichigo "pulled a win" against Aizen. (How can someone that near-omnipotent lose when there is NO clear understanding about his past - and how much he knows.)
As far as Ginjou shooting off Getsuga Tensho, the majority of the group got their power-up from Ichigo's FB. So, in his case, he acquired his own version of the attack.
So if Ginjo now is using GT then he either has another ability to copy/steal those or he knew how to fire one beforehand. Another catch is this, his FB wasnt his shini form so he shouldnt be firing GT from his FB. (talking about Ichigo).
And then finally a role that plays is this, Ginjo = a shinigami or half like Ichigo. Who has mixed blood. So its not out of the ordinary for them both to share similarities in their basic abilities.
In a sense Ginjo is his Senpai ^^.
I rather kick back and watch the show without jumping to conclusions yet, i mean it could be that he stole that ability but nothing showed us that he could steal abilities, its more like he took his raw power rather then the abilities (so far as we saw the other FB).
It's possible his attack we saw against Tsuki in this chapter http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/446/15 is just as powerful as Ichigo's attack now. Heck if you look at that move it's basically the same concept as Ichigo's attack, storing energy in the blade and then firing it off. The spoiler might just being saying it's GT because the attack comes off with a black aura rather then the white one shown in that scene.
Woohoo, Ginjou firing a GT. The only plausible explanation I can come up with comes from the fact that Ginjou stole Ichigo's powers. If he knew it from the start then I guess, it would be something like,
Ginjou : Ichigo, I am your real father
On a serious note, Ichigo spamming GT wont do, unless his has more power.
you guys let me know when this manga moves llol i feel like ive read a 100 alternate versions of 1 chapter. Its just becoming ridiculous now. There isnt even a step into what this whole thing is about? 30 chapters explaing fullbring 10 chapters on ichigo getting power back and now this? where is the story??
I do agree the battles swinging from one battle to another is kind of annoying. I hope the other battles will be settled shortly and we can see Ginjou vs. Ichigo.
Riruka vs Rukia doesn't matter since Riruka has no intention of winning.
Next chapter should be entire focused on Ichigo vs Ginjo and maybe it will end suddenly because of the chatroom disappearing.
It's not surprising that Ginjou can fire GT, Ichigo's FB lets him fire GT and Ginjou took Ichigo's FB which means he should be able to fire GT. It seems Ginjou has two different abilities: 1) He can steal other people's FB and use them as his own 2) He can use the power of a stolen FB to enhance the abilities of other FB users, possibly sacrificing a part of the power he has stolen.
Ginjou said if Ichigo's shinigami powers fuse with his fullbring, he'll be a transcendental. Ginjou was a substitute shinigami and he has fullbring powers, doesn't it make him a transcendental? If shinigami are truly unable to stop transcendentals, Ichigo (being another transcendental) is the only hope to stop Ginjou, isn't he? If Ginjou defeats Ichigo and Tsukishima bookmarks other captains, the story may take an interesting turn.
Talking about transcendental,
Aizen was interested in this also right?
The only way to be a transcendental is to have both hollow and shinigami powers and controlling hollow is almost pretty impossible but if we look at it... Fullbring is the control for hollow powers... I wonder how can one take FB to death and become a shinigami capable of using fullbring at the same time shinigami powers
The thing that annoys me most about this arc is that kubo is ignoring the "rules" he set up himself in the past.
Anyone remember when soifon went for the 2hit ko on aizen & what his reply was?
How on earth can tsuki's attacks have any effect at all ok byakuya then?
This manga is filled with so many plotholes really.
And it still annoys me every week that we never got to know what was up wit ichigos mask after ichigonator, what happened to kensei etc...
So many unclear things & kubo just keeps adding more
