So according to the spoilers it seems that Rose discovers that all his higher subbordinates are dead and thus he comes to fight the one who killed them to death. It should be an interesting fight as Rose is quite a versatile Shinigami. Especially in his Shikai form and using the mask will provide him a great boost.
Wasn't expecting Rose to get in on the action so soon. While I'm glad he's been shown doing something, I'm sort of worry this could be leading to his death.
rose against this new quincy not shown last chapter there will probably be other new quincys shown against other captains looks like a good chapter.
I actually think now that there is a good possibility of Shinigami winning this War, but having tons of casualties and after the War with Quincies we might see a new enemy that will be the final for Bleach.
Also hope Rose won't die as he needs to redeam himself as we know that he is strong as he is a quite old Captain (considerably older than Byakuya) and is also Vaizard, but every time we saw him was him loosing. Even Kensei didn't have such fate. Hope Vaizards will mock the flor with some Quincies.
It's great to see that the captains have finally taken matters into their own hands. The one Rose will be fighting with isn't one of the Sternritter, if there're more than 16 captain-class quincies in SS, dealing with all of them will be a huge task. I wonder if Rose will refrain from using his mask due to his position as a Gotei 13 captain, perhaps this is why C46 allowed them to be captains again. Thinking about rules while SS is getting destroyed wouldn't be a wise course of action though.
I believe he will use his Mask if needed, especially since he might not use his Bankai knowing that Quincies have meens to seal Bankais. Still it would be interesting if they won't be able to seal Vaizard's Bankais due to the mixture of powers.

I believe this is gonna be another wasteful chapter with some stupid cliffhanger
I dont think that a vaizards bankai will behave any different than a regular shinigamis bankai. Its still a zanpakuto, with no hollowpowers at all. At least thats what i guess.
Cant wait to see the chapter, but i seriously dont want the vaizards to get killed now... all this build up, character developement, story developement, just for letting them die in their second ( or first, in case of off-panel-kensei ) serious fight? We dont even have a glimps of what the powerlevel-relation is right now, until we know the outcome of a captian vs sternritter fight, including a comment on how this particular sternritter is ranked among his group.
Bleh chapter, we got to learn names and match ups. Nothing important. Guess in a few months the fights will start after some useless dialogue.
No, really though, this chapter was wasteful IMO. Just hoping they dont talk and go straight to slaughtering each other. This is setting up to be like Hueco Mundo arc with all the 1 v 1s.
A chapter to pass.

Im using Ichigo as a benchmark and what Hirako said at the beginning
The chapter was interesting. We've got our match-ups. My prediction was wrong. At least for now. Komamura is fighting a little girl and it seems that Byakuya will fight that strange monster that uses thorns to kill Shinigami.
About powerlevels among Sternenritters... I believe it might be according to the letters. As they are named from A to lower levels, then it might be that A is the strongest and then go lower. Thus it might be that Quilge isn't weaker than Sternenritter. It might actually be that he is weaker than some top 3 or top 5, but it might be that he might be among the strongest in Vandenreich as he managed to stall Ichigo. And at the same time some of them will fight Vice Captains such as Renji and Hisagi, thus I don't believe they might be anywhere near Quilge if they won't kill Hisagi and Renji in several seconds.
Oh man, Kubo just can't design black people, they are always off...NaNaNa looks horrendous, like a piece of shit, whyyyyyyyyyy!? Just to make us hate them? They look so weird for no reason, would like to have some background infos on them[in some Databook :P]. I'm so glad the match-ups are already done, there's no time to waste weeks for a couple minutes of introduction.
Bambietta is pretty cheeky, probably needs to be shown some limits to that, Would be pretty lame to see most of the Shinigami showing off their bankai just to go back to Shikai afterwards.
Hope we'll see Kenpachi and other Captains as there were still plenty left. Kensei, Yama (even though I believe he will only fight Führer, but still), Kenpachi, Mayuri, Unohana. So it seems that there are tons of Sternenritter. It was really bad that Kira died. Not that I liked him, but there were still some useless characters as Nemu, Nanao and especially Hinamori.
