I'm actually quite impressed by this arc so far, it's entertaining, it looks like the Shinigami might (finally) be up against someone who will stomp on their arrogance, naturally the Quincy seem arrogant themselves but they also don't seem to mind doing whatever is necessary to end a fight/The War quickly and decisively, a lesson the Gotei 13 despreately need to learn. I really was annoyed by the Aizen arc for this very reason, captains and even VC's avoiding using their full power for utterly absurd reasons and allowing themselves and their allies to be injured in the process.
Also love the design of Ayon-Kirge, very cool, however it does give me a rather strong D-Gray Man vibe.

God this thing with Ivan is getting pretty sick . I feel so sorry for Ayon , being enslaved and all . Don't quite like this idea of making the quincy now so strong . If Ivan can do this things i don't even wanna know what the leader can do .
I'm curious to see if Ichigo can defeat him and what method he'll use to do that . It would be so cool if he could use that final Getsuga form anytime he wished Another possibility would be if Ishida made his appearance . Anyway it feels pretty bad seeing how powerless Inoue , Chad and Ichigo are against that one Quincy
I wonder what buckbeard will do now. obviously those garbage-shinigami can't do anything against him,unless the aizen-like guy does something to slow him down. but I want kirge to be defeated before showing SS.
Im trying to figure out how this thread only has 3 pages and the Naruto chapter one has 31 -__-
Well either way i thought this was a great chapter. Kubo is wasting no time with getting this war started. The pacing is great.
really good chapter finally ichigo went bankai and started to fight seriously if he wants to win he had to use bankai. but i have to admit the quinys are monsters if opie can do this wonder what buckbeard and the quincys he took to SS are. fighting in the soul society will be the shinigamis downfall.
Where has all the Bleach fans gone?
Surely the current arc most have spiced up many peoples interest, no less the current chapters.
It's a bit sad really.. I blame the overuse of bankai!
(ok, kidding on that one ;d)
Awesome chapter, I really liked it. Very violent how Ayon died and blood spilling everywhere, even on Orihime's face. O_o I'm waiting for a better translations though as some parts of the chapter didn't make sense. I'm glad Ichigo is going Bankai to finish up fast. Sure I would prefer he didn't have to but I'm curious to see if Quilge can take part or all of Ichigo's Bankai.
As for Buckbeard, he knows how to make an entrance. I'm afraid for Kaj and his squad though along with Yuki.
For all those complaining that Kubo doesn't kill off characters. I have a feeling you are gonna eat your words soon.
well it seems opie's move doesnt work on people with captain reiatsu, if allon > all the vice captains, then im sorry the vice captains in this arc are gonna be sooo useless. if i remember Kubo has revealed all vice captain shikai and tat makes them pretty uninteresting now(except vice captains with new bankai).
lets see, SS has 7 captains who have not revealed their bankai + urahara, isshin, VR has 7 star knights and 1 boss, my prediction is that the captains who have revealed their bankai will team up and get royally owned in VR's current attack
He doesn't even have a Bankai which means there little bankai nullification will not work just like Ichigo.
I think Kenpachis is going to be the "wild card" in the War since he is one of the very few Captains who doesn't need a bankai to beat his opponents while a lot of the other Captains such as hitsyuguya,Byakuya, and Kommura seems to rely heavily on theirs.
And I can't wait to see Urahara,Kyoraku,and Ishin's Bankai.
I get the feeling that after the first wave of Captains gets owned due to the lose of their Bankai it will be Urahara that figures out a way to get past this new ability the Quincy has shown and then we will get to see the unseen Bankais.
urahara will save the day as always and im actually glad tat there are oni 7 star knights. back then in arrancar/aizen arc there were so many arrancar and their power levels were so overrated, each arrancar had their 1 v 1 fight tat ended in a way i consider anti climatic. fights were rushed, no quality at all, for a change i'd like to see the captains double teaming against these star 'monster' knights, i dun mind lengthy fights too as long as it portrays the monstrosity of their power
So like, Quincy can now transform partly into Hollows too?
Am I the only one thinking Aizen will be released to fight the Quincy? He would probably be able to own them all as he likes.
ichigo's finally using bankai. but wasn't he already using it when he first used the getsuga tenshou(nullified by his neck)? and how many getsuga does ichigo throw now? 3,right?
