Its gonna be a good chapter. Apparently, members of Vandenreich has the ability to suppress bankai. Bankai is a massive power-boost for captain class shingamis. Negating their bankai could at least put their opponent a fighting chance.
Hollow powers could be a reason that Ichigo's bankai was not negated. Perhaps, having had FB powers also played a part. Too early to be certain.
I don't think that the situation is that easy and obvious. At the begining of the manga Ishida wanted to make somewhat a revenge on Shinigami for killing his fellow Quincy and I believe he still isn't a friend of all the Shinigami with the small exetions like Ichi, Rukia, Renji, thus I can see a posibility of Ishida joining them, especially if his dad joins them.
Kenpachi and his banki-less fighting skill laughs at all these wimpy men hiding their faces.
Yes, Ken-chan will be the one who can't be affected at all by this strategy. Still, I hope he learnt the name of his Zanpaktou.
You might be right on this. The thing is that it can be that in order to trully sucsess the Soul King you need to be a perfect hybrid.
Zaraki Kenpachi will end this arc!
Ok, now I'm officially worried about arm-cutting fetish of Kubo. Bleach wiki should have a special category for characters that suffered of it, so far I counted: Kukaku Shiba, Grimmjow, Noitora (several times, if I remember correctly), Harribel fraccions, Soifon, Yamamoto, Hitsugaya...
Nice spoiler there, so the masked man can negate shinigami bankai and IMO that technique will create massive disaster to all shinigami's world. But if this suppress bankai technique is using widely, that's mean we will never see some other captain bankai after all i guess. Too sad..... but really interesting.
News for you? Cutting off a hand is considered a punishment in some cultures do to the pain and trouble it causes to the punished. This is for all of you with a fetish for calling fetishes on others.
Well, I'm disappointed tht Sasakibe didn't die, although I'm not surprised at all...
As for the rest, it's pretty much what we expected.
No big revelations here...
What the hell is up with mangareader today?
This was one short chapter... Basically no info, except for the part of them negating Bankai. But how would Saskibe know that? Did he got his own negated? If so, it's a feat for the guy to actually have Bankai xD
There's basically nothing else to comment on this chapter :\
