going into this arc, kubo was all "who knows if the arrancar will re-appear" and he was still mute on grimmjow, then the third chapter of this arc nel&co fall from the sky and halibel is in chains. This is why the fraccion appearing now didn't shock me. Neither did Loly and Menoly's appearances. In the volume sketches it showed one of them had been saved by Uryu's arrow after being attacked by Yammy.
Basically this all but confirms grimmjow's future reappearance.
I kind of like Harribel's fraccion's team dynamic. Especially Sun-Sun's side-comments. lol
They just have to make Allon and own everybody

I also really want to see Orihime to see Loly and Menoly again. I guess it's just a character building thing.

So far, I like this new arc. If Aizen's followers cannot stop saying his name, maybe he would make his presence known. Where were these guys hiding during Aizen reign of Heuco Mundo and did Soul Society ever noticed there presence before the attack. I hope all the dots add up.
http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/...week2extra.png), Kubo practically confirms the Grimmjow's comeback. In R&R there's an outline with the Espadas and some symbols to indicate how high was the possibility of reappereance, and since Nel has the same symbol (the one meaning high possibility) than Grimmjow, it means that he will surely return.
I'm going to say that he will be the a leader of a resistance group or something like that. He never liked being ordered around.
Other Arrancar who stayed alive and have a chance of returning are Gantenbainne (one of the Privaron Espada), Tesra (Nnoitra's fraccion) and of course, Kukkapuro, the dog
And I don't think that Harribel's fraccions will use Ayon; I believe they have become stronger during the timeskip.
not only are we seeing underlings of underlings, we're seeing defeated underlings of defeated underlings! this is hilarious. a new low for shounen story progression for sure. i don't think kubo understands at all why bleach's popularity has been steadily on the decline in the past few years.
I just noticed that this Kirge guy turned his Quincy cross into a saber... That's new. I guess Kubo didn't think it'd be fancy to make the main enemies all fight with bows.

Pointing out mistakes and flaws on the author's work is good and makes for good discussion, but this kind of meaningless trollin is not cute at all.

The post about general ranking/sales was moved and posterior posts about general rankings/sales will also be moved to this thread The reason Bleach has been falling in the rankings recently: a theory.
You are all invited to discuss it deeply in the mentioned thread.
Let's keep on topic about the chapter and predictions.

now then.....with all these random Arrancar underlings showing up again has anyone stopped to wonder....hhmm so SS is willing to wage a war vs Human beings (who are still alive - Quincy) and supposedly exterminate them, but when it comes to Hollows who dared to actually try and take over SS with 'Aizen sama' they're all seemingly still alive and all is forgiven, like they didnt even imprison them or go after them in HM?
this is all very perplexing....altho one way to look at it, maybe this is Kubo's version of the 4th ninja war lol, but damn come on man Kishimoto brought back uber bad ass bad guys and ppl we only heard of (legends).....i dunno
like everyone else tho the pacing had been great so far so i'm gonna wash this chapter out of my system and hope for the best next week

Well have to say, I actually enjoyed the cameos by Loly and Melony. The magically appearing sword, them still being devoted to Aizen, and the implication that they are of actual use was all funny. Anyway, can't wait to see the impending team-up between Ichigo and gang and Harribel's Fraccion.
I smell a team up between SS and HM coming...
I'm not sure but i think that there was a comment that stated that Azien was not the only enemy inside the SS, i can not be 100% sure though so please don't scrutinize me for it....
I'm still not 100% about the research and development captain forget his name, but i think he is an enemy and we don't know why he was in prison in the 1st place..
The chapter is keeping pretty good pace, i like the fact that Aziens name has been brought into the story again, i just don't think he will be fighting in this arc, if anything the only thing he would be doing is being a source of information, with the way the new guy was saying Azien didnt do a very good job at choosing his followers, might be a long shot but i think they could be after the information Azien gathered about the royal dimension
Harribel's fraccions are not the new antagonists, so whether they're weak or not shouldn't be our main concern at this point. There're new enemies who target both hollows and shinigami, they'll probably join forces in this arc, in that sense it's better for the plot to see some familiar faces instead of some random arrancars. Even though they can be annoying at times, I think Harribel's fraccions will be a valuable addition to the story on their way to rescue Harribel, not powerwise but as a part of humorous and emotional moments and they can provide further insight about the times when Aizen ruled HM.
and whats to say his zan is gone for good.he has to be unsealed first before you rush to such a conclusion
