I'm HUGELY disappointed.
It was SO unexpected....
Obviously noone EVER thought about Yama being ripped of his Bankai and Juha Bach going to visit Aizen...
I don't even know what to think about such a plot. I don't know about everyone, but I was already tired from Aizen during SS, Huecomundo and Fake Karakura Arcs, so to have him come back is too much of a troll.
We can take solace in one thing; Aizen isn't technically in the story again. If he does re-enter as a fighter, then I pray to God Urahara has figured out a way to destroy the Hogyokou. It's bad enough that now every week we get to hear more crackpot theories involving KS, the worst plot device known to man.
Please, Kubo, don't bring that crap back into Bleach.... The only thing that could make up for this is a potential Isshin/Ichigo tag team against Aizen/Bach.
After reading it, everything makes a lot more sense.
Figured someone had the same power as Loyd, but didn't expect it was like this. So much for Aizen staying away from the story.
I like how Yamamoto gets played for a fool again and again. Makes me wonder how he survived this long.
Didn't see the double being a twin or a mention of Aizen. Totally called everything else though.
Well damn, it's not like I didn't see that coming. Now we just have to wait for when Juha Bach is revealed to be related to Zangetsu
Wow, so Kenpachi got defeated by the twin brother he just killed earlier? He sure's gonna be pissed off when he hears that.
Well, after a long time it seems that Yamamoto's time as captain commander has finally ended. Aizen refused? I don't quite understand that one. If Bach had released him he could have done anything, after all hougyokou > quincy I guess.
Captain commander (seems to be ) is dead, long live the Captain Commander. And the new one will be one of Zero divisions strongest members.. I guess Yamamoto's defeat will completely change the structure of Soul Society and end this millenium long war between soul society and quincy.. which means Bach's death
Errmmm just ok chapter..but i get a little shock about Lyod.. i thought he died already, not suspected at all. I dunno why Yamaji go Bankai again without thinking a little, and now his recklessness will be make SS and his subordinate pulverize. It's really disappointed that very old and should be strongest/experience shinigami doing this without thinking of anything. So the war potential is actually become their subordinate to fight shinigami?
That was interesting...
I should say sorry to Kubo. It wasn't as bad as I expected, even though I don't understand how strong Bach should be if he managed to overpower Yama that easily, cause even without Bankai Yama should be a real monster among monsters.
Still it really rases a question, how strong Bach's henchmen are if one of them managed to stall Yama to such a degree and make him use Bankai against him? So Juha Bach even before getting Yama's Bankai was a monster who is at least around Yama in terms of overall power, so now I believe we might really see the downfall not only of Yama, but SS as well, as I can't even comprehend how SS can fight not only Juha Bach who is technically around Yama's level and also has Yama's Bankai now and his Sternenritters who as well are capable of not only fighting against Captains, but some of them are stronger than average Captains like Byakuya and some of them can even stall Shunsui and Ichigo who as well are quite monsters even in their respective Shikai.
P.S. So in this chapter we finally got an explanation on how this stealing technique works... It depends on the very power of the user as if his power is more or less equal to the one who he wants to rip of his powers, then he will succed, otherwise he won't get the powers via medallion. So it's finally confirmed that Ichi is a damn monster and he is way stronger than any of the Captains. It seems that if he could control his powers better he might have won against Kirge easier and faster.
P.P.S. Aizen said no to Juha Bach? That was unexpected. Either he doesn't want to destroy SS like this or he just despises Juha Bach and doesn't want to be his henchmen. It's also interesting as we know that Quincies can use Sklaverei technique and via this technique Juha Bach could have tried to steal Hougioku from Aizen and that might have been interesting. Though in suchg a case Bach would have gotten too powerful.
sasakibe's contribution is not power wise, but wisdom wise
