We have a new and interesting thread in Bleach Playground : Panel of the Week - Bleach 489 Edition.
I know this may not make sense to anyone but Mayuri accusing Yama that he didn't kill some one when he had the chance, i know it then showed a panel of Buckbeard, but what if it wasn't Buckbeard he failed to kill but was Isshin for trying the Dangai method of getting power, but instead of controlling it he ran out of time and ended up in the human world without any recollection he was a shinigami, and the people that helped him was banished from SS ie Urahaha, Cat(forget her name )
Only a theory of course
why the leader looks much like zangetsu?
This Quincy King is a rival to Yamamoto, I imagine. Looking forward to seeing their reunion.
p.s., i thought it was kind of humorous to see, Mayuri getting bold with the General Commander. He was trying really hard, to to press the old man's button with his words.
Well, being Maiury, maybe he was there during the war, but his experiments made him keep his young face.
He was in jail, but i believe there was at least a few years of freedom before the reason to put him in jail.
It's not certain, but maybe he was there with CC.
could it be possible that Buckbeard have a son and is the strongest of the Vandenreich? Buckbeard to be the final enemy was introduced to early in this "supposed to last for several years" final arc. Considering the way he looks. He's like between 40 and 45. Also I think it makes sense for Ichigo and or Uryu and the rest to fight a final enemy within their age range. you know, instead of fighting someone who's living for more than a 100 years now.
What interests me the most is what role or better said which side will Ishida take in this war ? He's also a Quincy that's why it should be interesting seeing his choice in the matter

Thing that strikes me is if the VR's aren't the final enemy, then who, could be that ishida's have actually kept contact with VanderReich the entire time giving them the data on everything. I'm not 100% sure when isshin met ryuken back in the Arrancar arc(i think) they defiantly weren't friendly towards each other but then again Ichigo and Uryu have the same kinda thing so i could be clutching straws
