does this mean byakuya will get his bankai back? and are they going to heal renji's to full strength again? they should take ikakku too. and if they can give back stolen bankais they should take the other captains who lost their bankai.
sui feng is getting annoying she keeps letting her emotions get out of hand.
i went back and had a look at the picture of the first gotei 13 captains but none of them resemble these dudes. i hope at some point kubo releases a databook with names, pictures and divisons of every captain and vice captain since the start of the gotei 13 along with descriptions of their shikai and bankai. that would be amazing.
im quite intersted to know what divisions these guys belonged to. im a bit confused by the shutara as she seemed to imply she belonged to the 12th divsion but hikifune was captain before urahara. though she may have been captain before hikifune or just broke in there but was captain of another divsion. it would be cool if she was a kenpachi. she kind of reminds me of the 8th kenpachi. unohana's teacher seems would most likely be from the 4th divsion. my guess is the monk is from the 10th or the 13th and the black dude is from 7th or the 9th. no real reason for thinking that though.
I'm pretty sure the girl was from 12th division because it seems she manipulates her body as well with experiments.
OMG - great chapter!!
I thought for a second when ichigo started to say - wait I dont need to go I can heal just fine my injuries are not that serious-
that one of the zero div, would start to laugh and say- NOT THAT BADLY INJURED LOL- YOUR BANKAI IS BROKEN, YOU DONT EVEN COMPREHEND HOW INJURED YOUARE!!- but alas- that didnt happen. Instead I think urahara makes his appearance via voice only- on the last page-
good to know that they are taking ichigo - I totally loved how they had his bankai in that bubble thing... and the chick with the skeleton arms is AWESOME!!!
what a great chapter all around-
The good thing about the RGs refusing to help SS against the SR means that we will see the captains get stronger, team up with arrancars, learn new combat styles, and redeem themselves against the SR.
I would much rather see the current captains shine before the RG starts engaging against more powerful oppopnents
I agree because there's still so much to see from Unohona, Ukitake and Shunsui. Especially Ukitake and Unohona...
Anyone else notice how the big doctor's hair was extending towards Unohana? Can he control his hair or something? (Like Jiraiya, lol)
It seems like it's slithering around Unohana.
I swear it is haha.
And MAN that doctor guy is big, it's like he's abnormally huge, even moreso than Kenpachi.
Hikifune will lose weight and be her normal size when she releases her real powers
ALSO, guys, did you notice Kyoraku is calling the monk-guy "bonze"?
Google "Bonze" and you'll see monks.
So Bonze could be the monk guy's name.
I pointed that out earlier. And someone before me.
I think we just found out who the 5 War Potentials are in this chapter. Ichigo, Rukia, Renji, Byakuya and I know this is nuts but Zangetsu.
5 war potentials ? If that was the case then I'd expect Zaraki's name to be mentioned since Juha (Royd as Juha and the one with the memories capabilities not strength) mentioned his name as a special potential as well;
plus his full potential has yet been reached, probably not even close. If anything as mentioned earlier by others, RG's know about Ichigo's hidden quincy abilities and will decide to act on it whether it's to imprison him or Ichigo as a hybrid to try to unlock his quincy powers then merging it with his hollowification/fullbring/shinigami powers. If there's anyone who can do it, it's the King alright.
I saw someone mentioned Gin to be a possibility as a candidate to be the one who spoke in the last page, he is one who has that type of personality as well other than Urahara. If it is really him then it would be awesome! Felt like he was wiped away too fast as soon as we all found out the real Gin, plus as you guys can notice. He's my fav! I can only hope though...

Brilliant Chapter. Loved the guard...my current favorite is The "handsy" cutie, the things she could do to you with all those arms...anyway Bonze seems to be the leader or at least the strongest of the bunch. Quick question: Is there a Royal Family mentioned in the manga?
And now some nonsense:
What Was There:
What I Saw:
Having seen their full body depictions I'm enjoying the RG's designs more and more, aside from the one guy that didn't speak, but that's more due to it not resonating with my preference, not because it was cheap and generic or whatever. It seems Kubo invested a similar amount of effort on them as he did with the other captains.
