Wow, the "new" guy looks pretty.
So, will Urahara say anything usefull or will he just tease Ichigo to make him do a new trainning?
Looks like a bit of backstory between Yama & Chojuro?? that's nice, the guy is so underwhelmed in the manga, it's about time he deserved a backstory, however short (and late) it is.
probably just tease us some more, at this point i really do believe all secrets regarding Urahara Kisuke will only be revealed in an incredible final chapter of Bleach lol
some idiots from HM huh, i bet Grimmjaw amongst others

LOL, this time, Ukitake came to pick Ichigo.
I still think that Vandenreich are making some experiment.
Why would they need the weakest arrancars?
I am already pumped up for the new chapter. I am confused, are they trying to "steal" or "seal" the bankai? Stealing a bankai sounds crazy and at the same time, awesome .
Aw, dang it. I was hoping the new chapter'ed show Shinji. Oh, well.
So they could steal bankai. This spells bad news for the Gotei 13...
But it seems like the shinigami have to use bankai in order for the Vanden reich to steal their bankai. Like with Ichigo. Ivan was only strating to steal his bankai when he activated it. So as long as they don't use it, their bankai should be fine. Guys like Sio Fon, Kyoraku, and Shinji, who don't rely on bankai should be okay. I guess...
Chapter is out.
It was nice to get an insight about Sasakibe, the guy even had Bankai before Shunsui and Kyouraku, that just speaks about how strong he was...
Anyway, a nice chapter again, Kubo is really doing some good job here, I'm liking the pace.
Also a nice chapter this week, so Sasakibe already achieved Bankai before Ukitake and Shunsui? Wow, that's fantastic but too bad his already died and it's seem Yamaji really 'emotional' this time. From the words of Nel fracion, Halibel is the queen of heunco mondo after Barragan n Stark died, it's predicted by me. Overall, good chapter and btw, the "New Guy" enemy is very2 pretty.....
I seriously doubt they'll be able to steal Ichigo's Bankai. He went an entire arc without his shinigami powers and it would be redundant to take them away again.
As for the other shinigami, I'm not so sure it'll be a massacre. I mean there's a reason Ichigo was able to break free from his Bankai being stolen. I imagine the person taking it has to be stronger than the shinigami for it to work.
Which makes me think that most Captains will be fine, or just resort to not using their Bankai.
I'm also curious if Urahara is actually going to Hueco Mundo with Ichigo like the chapter previewed.
You gotta love Renji's expression in this page, as well as Byakuya's: http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/486/6
It shows that they are aware that Sasakibe and Yamamoto's relationship resembled theirs; Renji didn't take the captain's mantle because he wanted to stay under Byakuya. The reasons are different, but still...
This is why I love Kubo as an author. Subtle, delicate moments like these.
Also, seems like Starrk is dead for good.
DAMN! Saskibe was actually powerful yet he never showed it! WOW! I respect the guy more now. He was just like Renji, Ikkaku and Iba, not wanting to leave their captains side. Respect for the guy.
Hmm, could it be that Ishida knows more than he is letting out?
Ichigo and Urahara? Fighting? Together?
it seems they want to capture and use Zangetsu X Hallow Ichigo (the guy mentioned the white hair guy and he didn't catch it) to their needs i think they know that Zangetsu X Hallow Ichigo is more like a vasto lorde to them
so they do steal Bankais...how disappointing...I'm not a fan of 'stealing another's power' to make yourself strong. we might also see Sasakibe's bankai since it's been 'stolen'. Still, Kubo made a wise move not to have another villan leading an army that reflects the captain in number and strength (aka the espada) and try to define their power level even before any fights begin.
Stark's dead, meh I was hoping for Kubo to give Hallibel and Stark some opportunities to show why they were ranked that high, their performances in FKT were on par with Grimmjow's feats and this seemed to be an opportune time to give them some fights since the shinigamis are obviously extremely handicapped in this war.
would be interesting if Urahara accompanies the gang to Hueco Mundo.
