It covers the time from Ichigo changing back to a being without reiatsu to Rukia stabbing him with the reiatsu sword for the second time. About how Rukia cut her hair not to look like Hisana before her promotion, about the sword etc.
Absolutely cannot wait for this. In case someone tls it, of course.Quote:
So that's a confirmation of it being canon?
Does anybody have any idea what role Don Kanoji, alleged star on the novel, and Roka, nurse arrancar, have in the novel. I have read that Roka is the one that accidently created Cien(pretty big thing but still) and the one who Mugetsu him with her abilitie to copy powers. Also for those wondering Azashiro Kenpachi was send back to mugen and started training to one day beat Ken, or so I heard<-I really wanted to say this.
Someone said Deathberry was translating the novels then locking it for people that are members...
Can any member go and read it? Or do you need a special level of membership?
You need to registrate there, and when you're sure from your posts and activity they won't think you're there to steal it and put it up on BleachAsylum, then ask an admin to grant you the permission to see the hidden subforum xD
Sending them in my left arm and my right leg to prove my commitment wouldn't work?
Im going to be too annoyed if Kenpachi is that strong in Canon. TOO ANNOYED! Everything else sounds cool though.
And no one will take this project, tch if only i could affiord japanese clases in my country, this sucks, i would love to read all that
soooo... any word if this is cannon? guessing not if kenpachi just got his ass kicked. He def hasnt reached his "war potential" status yet i doubt though
To answer your question, novels are filler 99% of the time. Everything not drawn for a WSJ Bleach chapter is very likely filler as well. Let's see it as alternate universe possibility.
It's not too filler, but not too canon either. It seems the main point of this novel (the part about Zaraki mainly, which annoys fans too) is that the author managed to understand Zaraki's true strength, it's painfully clear that Zaraki isn't a the level of FGT Ichigo or Godizen, but it seems that he does have a big potential (although the explanation the author of the novel gave are ridiculous, especially the part about Aizen's plan to kidnapp Orihime was to lure Zaraki because he was afraid of him, which is absurd, because Zaraki didn't show anything that could threaten base Aizen, also how come is that a plan ? Who told Aizen that Kenpachi would come actually, and not Hitsugaya or Komamura etc, that explanation is clearly bullshit)
It seems to me that the author picked up on the nature of Kenpachi's power, but not necessarily the magnitude, if you see what I mean. He might have guessed Kenpachi's true zanpakuto ability, but that stuff about his reiatsu being un-feelable by the other Shinigami at one point doesn't even make sense... Ichigo and Aizen's reiatsu couldn't be felt because it was fundamentally different from other spiritual beings, not because it was just bigger. Kenpachi is a Shinigami, and that's all. And yeah, Aizen fearing Kenpachi is just silly. Even if Kenpachi's power surpasses his (it doesn't) he's under Kyoka Suigetsu. I don't know why the author was so fixated on Kenpachi in this book, actually.
I'd say some stuff from here might end up being relevant, but purely coincidentally. End of the day, what happens in the manga takes precedence, and I don't think Kubo's going to alter his story to accomodate the stuff that happens here. So I wouldn't count this as canon by any means.
