Plus Yamamoto cannot go full force in the middle of SS/Seireitei if he doesn't want to destroy it completely.
I doubt Kubo is bothered by possible nazi connotations. Nor should we be.
Frankly, I was more stressed by that color cover. First words that came to mind were rape time! Dafuq did I just see?
I don't like if Kubo take out Yammamoto's vice captain off screen. I at least want to see him fight once. He didn't get a chance in fake town, didn't even get a slash from Aizen. Even Soifon's vice captain got a fight.
another stupid point in bleach. again with the bankai sigh are these guys really that strong because if they can make ichigo go bankai they must be at least Aizen lvl
This arc has shown great pace and had me guessing. So much is happening in this chapter. If these characters are there to fight Yama, I assume they already know how strong he is, even with one arm. Unless, they had a fighting chance, they wouldn't have shown up. As for Ivan, I think he may seek help from Ichigo. On the contrary, his method is drawing too much attention.
Kubo showed us that there is more to using powers then just lvls all the time in this manga so i agree ^^
the masked guys are finishing off sasakibe and giving a declaration of war at the end of the chapter... does that mean that yamamoto got defeated off panel?
i still haven't forgiven kubo for doing this with kensei and wonderweiss in fkt.
If anyone saw the cover yet, i wonder is it forshadowing Ichigo going arrancar mode? I mean the hood covering his left eye has a white skullish design on it. Its def interesting ^^
now i guess quincies kno kido as well, but that didnt seem to work out very well for ivan lol
After reading a chapter and actually seeing that one of the guys who declare War on Yama got something like a sword (or Zanpaktou)... might it be that Vanden Reich is our highly anticipated Royal Guard? Or am I just hoping for too much?
Also Ivan is quite strong, but Ichi only went Bankai, because he wanted to try to play in Ivan's game, not because he really needed to use it. I see Ivan beeing at least on par with Komamura, but not that stronger. I don't believe he might defeat Byakuya or Kenpachi, so of course he isn't in anyway near even Aizen's base level.
you can see guard of his rapier, no idea who impaled him with that giant spear thou
This chapter was awesome! Whatever the Van Der Reich are, they are not to be trifled with. I personally don't think Ivan was using Kido, it looked like he pulled something out of his pocket which he then used to attempt to do something to Ichigo when he went Bankai. I'm thinking that whater he pulled out allows him to absorb reitsu faster as he did it when Ichigo released the most reitsu. And remember when Ichigo explained that his jacket thing represent the amount of reitsu he has? If that still applies then it means that Ivan got a little of it before Ichigo overpowered that item.
