I know this is very strange, but some other group already scanlated the chapter.
No spoiler period today.
Enjoy as much as me.
Best Chapter since Ichigo went FGT, So the Badge enables the users to Steal away a bankai, so i guess Ichigo is the only exception since his Both Hollow and shinigami/fullbring are all fused together is not a Bankai Anymore.
My Guess is This Technique also works on the Vizards since they havent actually fused theyre hollow powers with their shinigami sides, like ichigo
So many bankais at once.
It was so cute to see the quincies' eyes shining with pleasure when they saw the bankais.
I hope it doesn't work with Vizards' bankais.
Awesome!! no spoiler period!! Anyways, I kinda liked how the captains are emulating Ichigo's reckless tendencies but also coming up with a well-thought out plan at the same time. But at least now they know the key to the Bankai stealing method. It wouldn't take long for the captains to figure it out.
Also, I believe that the Vizards can probably overpower the badge like Ichigo does because unlike the other Captains they have a second source of power. When they release their Bankais, at the same time, they'll put on their masks to overpower the badges. But the tricky part is the timing.
The chapter's final was damn interesting! The problem is that now Sternenritter has powered up beyond ridiculous. They were quite strong to be able to fight on par with Captains even before, but now after getting Bankais from Komamura, Byakuya, Soi Fong and Hitsugaya... well, I just don't know who might defeat them now. Now SS will need some serious help. And we have a damn plot twist now. Hope they will give info for other Captains, otherwise we'll get some unstoppable oponents who even Ichi will have troubles with.
Especially imagine if Yama will fight their leader and use his Bankai and it will get stolen... then I don't even know how strong Ichi should get to be able to fight the guy.
Nice chapter.... now we know they actually stole the bankai and probably can use it to defeat SS. Now, all the captain/vc need to use their basic strength and also kidou. Just wonder, if bankai is stolen... can the captain use shikai? or their sword not function anymore?
OMG this arc is becoming better and better. Quincies have found a way to steal the bankais. We know they were unable to steal Ichigo's bankai. Will it be the same for other Vizards. I hope so. It, at least, explains why they were kind of a failure against Aizen. Now, is a perfect time to redeem it.

i expected stealing ones bankai to be filler material and not manga material
So we might also see Sasakibe's Bankai now as it seems that one of those Quincies managed to steal it. It might be interesting to see how strong it was as it should have been based on lightning element. Hope the Captains can still use their Shikai, cause if not they are practically doomed.
The only good thing I can see is that it seems that one person might steal only one Bankai at a time, hence they won't be too overpowered. Even though they are already overpowered like there is no tomorrow. Seriously. If the person is around Captain's level in his Basic form, then he can use his Final form to unlimitedly absorb tons of energy, then absorb some Hollows or Arrancars to further enhance himself and who can also steal Bankai. Seriously, you must make a bit of balance to it.)
I just see their meathod of finding the meathod of sealing stupid .
I mean was there really a need for 4 captains to go bankai ?? I mean just one captain could have gone bankai and it would have been more than enough to see the method .
Secondly , why a captain when u have ppl like Renji and Ikkaku who aint captains running around with Bankai . I can understand for Ikkaku as no one but few know of his bankai , but why not use Renji instead???
Thirdly , Since Byakuya stated Bankai is necessary for winning , loosing his bainkai = instant loss , so again why experiment with 4 captains !!??
after this chapter fulbring arc became one of the most important arcs of the manga. unfortunately all the known fulbringers are outside perimeters of soul society. i hope mayuri investigated ginjo's body and learned secets of fulbring. the best part of komamura and co.s bankai getting stealed is that, when other captains learn the situation they will not use bankai without back up plan. and bankais of these captains were the most redundant and the least interesting among all.
komamura huge size, but huge disadvantage
byakuya amazing, but we see it so many times
soifon huge explosion, but can be used at most twice
hitsugaya cool eye tech, but even halibel was alive after the huge ice flower, a quincy can absorb and survive easily
The fact that Byakuya stated that the captains needed Bankai to win against the Stern Ritter just by seeing their base form is pretty worrisome.
At this point, seeing SS in ruin is a very plausible outcome.
The thing I don't get is why Soi Fong didn't use her Shikai to fight her opponent as her Shikai is damn deadly, especially as we know that she is fast and this guys are full of themselves and don';t think that they need to dodge. And when striking very fast it might lead to a fast death of practically any opponent.
