Cool chapter. Didn't see that coming with Unohana. And I thought she would become the CC, not Shunsui. Hmm. So is Shunsui also going to get upgraded now to match his new title?
His Bankai must be hella dangerous, too bad it'd just get stolen.
No wonder they're focusing on Zaraki now, the guy is one of their few last hopes. He's their war potential.
Didn't quite like the humour, personally I felt it took up a little too much of the chapter, but eh wuhevah.
I wonder if Ichigo had his Blut Vene activated when Kirinji punched him?
Oh and Shunsui had two secret names, oo
There's a really big chance that Ukitate declined the CC position. There were two names written there.. Wow.. Nice chapter..
Was it Ichigo who broke the RG's hand or Abarai? Why did he hit back? Was it just a friendly knuckle to the head.. ??? I don't understand that part or whatever that thing was..
I just called this thing regarding unohan.. (not being a Kenpachi but) being originally a fighter not a healer in the Captain Rankings thread.. wow.. But got surprised that she was that strong.. First kenpachi and her facial artwork is just scary...
So the next time those white chicks come, they'll be covered red..
ukitake is ill most of the times. why would he be asked to be CC? anyways, if ukitake has a valid point shinsui will definitely listen and act on it.
Mad respect to Kyouraku for shutting up the central 46 and proving them wrong, the pair-up of Zaraki and Unohana is AWESOME ! Can't say enough of that
I got goosebumps reading this chapter. I am totally amazed on having revlations after revelations. I knew Shunsui would be the CC, so no surpise there. But Unohana was the first Nepachi . Something happened to her to change so much.
Kininji smacked the shit out of Ichigo. Doing that against something strong is obviously going to hurt. Happened to Yoruichi before. But what Kininji said afterwards is interesting. How can the King be interested if Ichigo had been fighting in Hueco Mundo for most of this arc? And how can they know what's going on everywhere else in the first place? Does the King or that Reijutsu allow omniscience to some extent? And how desperate is it to ask a Substitute Shinigami for help?
Damn that chapter is amazing on so many levels, those epic line
"I'll teach Kenpachi Zaraki... the art of killing"
"No, if he become more powerful than he is now it will be impossible to stop him..."
"Can you perhaps... protect yourself on you own?"
Those eyes.. deep, cold and ruthless. Unohana is the O'Ren Ishii of bleach that try to fit in as a medecin when in fact she have a natural talent for killing that she rejected long time ago. Imo she was just like Zaraki.. with boobs!
The last panel is my all time favorite now, calm people are scary.
Wow chapter !!!!! Like other people, i know Shunsui will be CC but Unohana is actually 1st "kenpachi" just epic. And her face is very scary now. They said, kenpachi cant be controlled even Yamaji stopped the training in one day. So that's mean only Unohana can handle teach/train zaraki?
this was one cool chapter. we learned the new CC. wouldnt say unexpected. shunsui might actually be the only 1 that can gain the respect of every1. it was very interesting to learn that unohana was the 1st kenpachi. that might explain why she is so feared by every1. Now the question remains when did zaraki and unohana fought? as every1 might remember her revealed name is the name given to yachiru and he himself said the most important person for him. i cant w8 for the real fight.the 1 happened on FB.
other issue, what the hell des it mean that king fall for ichigo? as his guard or lover. now that would be funny
Now we know why most captains are afraid of Unohana, there's no telling when she'll go berserk. Interestingly enough, Unohana is the one that Kenny admires the most when he first met Yachiru, he must have seen her fighting a long time ago. Perhaps she one of the original 13 captains, exactly as Bach describe: "A bunch of killers". With Shunsui as CC, Unohana as a battle asset, Kenny at full potential, and Ichigo & co with power ups, the quincies are seriously in trouble.
We also got deeper into why Kenny was considered a war potential, it isn't just because he strong without a Bankai, its because just like Ichigo, he has unlimited potential.
Lastly, the Royal dimension isn't exclusive to beasts, there are fodders there too.

Anyone notice when Kirinji said "They actually exceeded my expectations," ?
it meant he and the rest of the RG already knew the potential Renji, Rukia, Byakuya and especially Ichigo has.
Also, the King might've known about Ichigo ever since Isshin's exit and always knew he'd be special. The SS and Hueco Mundo arc most likely solidified it for the King to call him up to the royal realm.
