I'm down to guess the ranks out of 0 Div. (in terms of power)
5- The Rose mashup w/ glasses
4- Samurai looking dude
3- Chubby chic who no one wants to be Hikifune
2- The better looking chic who everyone wants to be Hikifune
1- Fear the beard.
Doubt my prediction will be spot on but hey, I'll be happy if I get one of 'em right!
The captains looked unhappy because they haven't really recovered from the invasion, and now these guys arrive with a huge grin on their faces. The way Mayuri and Shinji put it, they must be extremely annoying to have around, which is extremely plausible looking at their faces.
Hell, if Isshin was past of them, then it's no surprise that he acts like a clown all the time.
I worry that we're going to have to endure some awful timeline contradictions, such as Isshin's past and Misaki's past. Plus, it makes no sense that Isshin understood that Aizen's evil, but thought that the Vizard were evil. I chalk that one up to a retcon as perhaps Kubo hadn't planned for the Vizard to be good as they were later made to be, so at the time that Isshin made that speech, the Vizard were going to be evil.
If Isshin was a member of the RG, and assuming we've been told the truth about there only ever being five members at a time, then we have a problem.
There is still the issue, regardless of anything, of no one commenting that they knew Isshin or anything. Not even Yama ever said anything. Yet, Isshin knew of Aizen and Aizen knew of Isshin, so...Isshin also knows Urahara and Yoruichi, as well as being good friends with Ryuuken. The focal point of Bleach really seems to be the TBTP arc, as we get Hikifune's promotion to the RG and the beginning of the events surrounding Aizen. Through TBTP, we get Urahara and Yoruichi being in Karakura Town, and then somehow some involvement with Ryuuken and apparently Isshin falling in love with a Quincy, perhaps Ryuuken's sister or Bach's niece, daughter, something. We'll find out.
My complete rankings of the 5:
1 - Bald Bearded Mofo
2 - Yakuza Face
3 - Fat Lady
4 - Mr Grin
5 - The one I want to be Hikifune
The Bald Bearded Mofo reminds me of Yamamoto without the wrinkles and white hair.
The "official" explanation was far from the truth though, and at one point where they arrived Yamamoto thought they were evil. After all, only Urahara and Aizen know what really happened back then.

I liked ichigo's bankai but i guess kubo is too lazy to repeatedly draw it since its so detailed
Interesting chapter. I'm not worried about the Ichigo bankai thing, it is just something to slow down things a bit.
Altough I was hoping that Ginrei is with the Zero Squad, they are still interesting. I am sure, the fat chick is Hikifue, she seems like a nice mother / aunt and she would fit Hiyori. She is gonna be happy to see her again.
My guesses for their squad, that they left:
Fat lady - squad 12
Samurai - squad 11
The Beard - squad 10
Older Soifon - squad 2
Monkeyface - squad 7
The Beard - bearded guys always smash
Samurai - he looks like he doesn't care, so he will fck up everybody
Fat lady - surpriseeeeee mofo
It would be funny, if the Monkeyface guy would be Rose's dad, and Rose would just say in the beginning of the next chapter: Hey dad...
Also, I hope their Zanpakuto has some cool powers.
the yakuza looking dude is a kenpachi thats why kubo took zaraki out of the picture so that the yakuza dude stands out a bit
I will join this
1 - young Gouken
2 - Chyokusenbancho's horse
3 - The Akimichi (Hikifune )
4 - Yoruichi's mother?
5 - The love/rose mashup man

Dude did you read the chapter at all? Mayuri just said even if ichigo were to be healed his sword wont be reverse like komamura, And orihime is not capable of rejecting items or wounds that surpass her own powers, and we all know ichigo is 100x stronger than orihime and if she were to ever want to reject his sword being broken shes gonna need at least as much reitsu as ichigo.Quote:
That is a simple answer man, maybe the Zero squad are all older than 1000 years so yamas speech does not apply to them, he did say no shinigami born in the last 1000years is stronger than me, so i guess teh Zero squad was there long before that.Quote:
The wall is actually from the King realms and it drops down to SS in emergency situations.Quote:
The Real question now is, Who the hell is ISshin, In this chapter it said that there are only 5 members to Zero Squad so who in the world is Isshin seriously
NEVER take a translation for granted. In Japanese, "criminal" is a word similar to the one we use for "rogue" or "fugitive". Isshin probably said something along the lines of that.
So yeah, Isshin probably never thought they were evil in the original print.
I didnt get what Kyoraku meant about the Seireitei gates being open before. Can someone explain it to me? SOmething about where the king resides? Pleas help me out.
All five of them combined > than all the 13 squads? or Just one of them is greater than all the 13 squads? I don't buy it. In the TBTP arc, it was said that Hiyori's captain was promoted. If RG is indeed stronger than the 12 squads, wouldn't it have made more sense if Yamamoto was the promoted and not Hikufune? (Unless, aside from holding the position of CC, Hikifune is really stronger than Yama thus earning a spot in the Zero Squad.
