Driscoll is the one on the left with the beard appearing and he's dead.
Haschwald is most likely the one with the blonde hair.
The one with his chin appearring and in front is a mystery to me and most likely hasn't been introduced yet.
The Quincy next to him with the earrings is most likely "Busbee". The Sternritter with the mohawk, who survived Yamamoto's attack.
The one behind Ichigo's arm with open hand could be the Sternritter that stole Hitsugaya's Bankai. Just going by hair though, no definite.
The last one, only revealing his blood coat, could be anyone or most likely Shunsui's opponent.
Those are my guesses, but just "my" guesses and not actual facts or anything.
I really wonder about the one in front. The person in front should be quite important. Royd, maybe?
Ishida more likely is the one in front
This arc will center around him for pretty long time I think and he is son of THE last Quincy- Ryūken Ishida.
Sure, Uryuu should play an important role in this arc, but if he's put on this cover, it's more like degrading the role.
its uryuu...check faceline ..both are same
The one just to the right of Ichigo does indeed look suspiciously like Uryuu. I wonder if these guys are all going to be the 'important' Stern Ritter. The first one is Driscoll Berci, who killed Sasakibe and showed us his bankai. The next guy is Haschwald, who looks to be a key member of the Vandenreich, and judging by his odd behaviour in the last couple of chapters, I have a feeling he has some connection to Ichigo. The only other one we can identify is Busby (Mohawk Guy), who survived Yama's attack, so I'm thinking Kubo's saving him to do something in the upcoming conflicts.
It's interesting that Kubo's made sure not to show us any identifiable features of the other two. I wonder if their identities are part of some big reveal...
The third guy could might as well have been that arrancar guy, Ivan. He has that chin too right? Several chars probably do.
The fourth guy seems to have several piercings in his ear.
And then the fifth appears to have straight dark hair, a bit "emo"-like if you will.
The sixth is impossible to see.
Dunno. Even some SR didn't last that long. Or it's just not him
As much as I would like it to be Uryu, I'm pretty sure we'd see his bangs in the image. Unless he got a haircut while Ichigo and company were in Hueco Mundo.
You guys are forgetting that Uryuu's hairstyle has changed. It's been different since the Fullbring arc.
It's possible (but probably not likely) that he's the one on the cover.The picture dex posted isn't entirely accurate.
Quilge might be the guy all the way to the right, or next to Haschwald. He can't be the one right behind Ichigo since the hair is too long.
