I'm okay with Rose becoming a captain, but where does that leave Love?
IIRC, 4 of the Vizards were captains before the event of TBTP : Shinji, Kensei, Rose and Love.
The first 3 just got their old rank back, but not Love...
That sucks for him...
He was the captain of the Squad 7...
IMO, Kubo should have killed Komamura and give his rank to Love.
That way every old captain would have had his captain rank back, and we would have had at least one death in the Winter "War".
BTW, I wonder what rank the other vizards have now...
We know that the current lieutenant still have their title, so they were not replaced by the vizards...
I thought there might be a 14th division but Kubo would have mentioned it in the omakes.
but it is still not morally right to "erase" them instead of the alternative, giving them repentance and peace, sending them off to ss.
That's good for the final phase. it might be something near the end imo. Kubo could make ichigo the first human captain in ss.Quote:
To be honest, I'm one of the few that won't like it if ichigo's mother was a quincy and that there were some grand scheme behind it or something.
I like her dying to save ichigo better than some kind of gigantic evil scheme behind grand fisher, quincies and shinigamis..
and that she doesn't know about it? I'm fine with that.
But if she does know about it and her reason for saving ichigo goes beyond that of a mother's love..I don't know
Well, I think that even if you're a part of a grand plan and you totally know that the child must live, it's the same for a mother me thinks. Whether Ichigo was a key part to something or wasn't, as mother, she'd die for him.

A funny though struck me as I was pondering the idea of the next arc taking place in some sort of ice palace. I kinda wonder if it's going to be some kind of homage to superman's fortress of solitude, perhaps it could be one of the following. A place where the last of the quincy's have taken refugee (humans with special powers), a place where the 0 squad is stationed (super powered humans from another dimension) or perhaps Ichigo is really Superman and he comes from the planet Krypton, so he's about to learn his true history through the stuff his parents left him with before the planet exploded.
http://www.mangareader.net/94-485-4/...hapter-31.html The proof lol
I wonder if he's a fan of superman lol cause I really can't think of any other reason for having the setting take place there other then being a homage. If Quincy are involved then perhaps they've developed their powers more like Fullbring so they have a greater utility with them. Ishida may ally himself with them if SS decides to do something about them like they did with the Fullbring causing an interesting turmoil, if the theory about how each arc seemed to focus on a main ally is true enough lol. But this is all in good fun, by next week we'll get a hopefully interesting setup towards the upcoming arc and maybe everything mentioned will start to fit into place that's been mentioned throughout the 3 week break.
I can see the correlation, I just don't know if it'll happen. Masaki would have had to be a Quincy herself...Ginjou was mentioned as well, but I don't understand that at all. The prerequisite for becoming a Fullbringer is that one of your parents had to be attacked by a Hollow prior to a person being born. Masaki was attacked, but it was after Ichigo was born, but Isshin being a Shinigami means he definitely would have been attacked by a Hollow. Prerequisite fulfilled. Ginjou has nothing to do with the Quincy.
And no, I didn't mean to imply the Quincy would be antagonists, they might be, but just that they would be involved and Ishida would be focal point.

As xi0 said, Ichigo gaining these powers are related if you see how it has been so far. Shinigami and Hollow are like two sides of a coin. Ichigo having hollow inside him makes sense. Fullbring arc was meant for him to regain his powers.
Even if there are possibilities of Masaki being a Quincy, I doubt Kubo would give Ichgio Quincy powers. Shooting arrows isn't the most powerful technique, nor does it suites Ichigo. He is already at a level that no Quincy can beat him. I don't see it adding more to Ichigo's personality or story.
Anyway I think it'd kinda fit, since Ichigo would become a hybrid with every power that exists. Right now, only Quincy side is missing in him..
I still don't really expect him to gain Q powers, but if he does, I won't be surprised.
Opponents in the next arc will be so strong that they'll make Kyoraku and Unohana, maybe even Yamamoto go bankai. In no way Ichigo will be the boss again, one-shotting everyone. The remaining Quincy's will be probably much stronger than Ryuuken is, and Ryuuken is immeasurably stronger than Uryuu. And Uryuu defeated Mayuri. Plus the fights will probably happen somewhere with high density of spirit particles, somehow powering up the Qs even more.
Also, as I said I doubt Quincy's will only use bows. That would make fights uninteresting after a while, and Kubo wouldn't do it.

Btw of course that's if the antagonists are Quincy's
I don't think Ichigo will be a quincy and shoot arrows either but it's not out of the realm of possibilities that Ichigo will start absorbing spiritual particles from the surroundings to make himself even stronger, like a quincy.
My memory's rather rusty on this, but don't shinigami kind of do that already? I think it was mentioned in the start of SS or somewhere completely different ._.
