Okay so the afro dude actually made the shinigami's Zan's WTF!!!!! i thought it was apart of their soul?
Who came up with the "shutara is a guy" thing?
Is it true? Where did the info come from?
Hikifune you sexy MILF
Well... Created the " Zanpakuto " ? Damn that's something completely new, I thought the Zanpakuto comes from within a Shinigami, a great chapter nonetheless, it was quite fast paced and we already finished with Hikifune, next chapter is gonna be even better
To cut off any outrage about the Zanpaktou being developed by Nimaiya I'd like to remind people that Yamamoto founded the Shinigami academy 2000 years ago. Meaning he and most likely Unohana probably stayed behind while the rest went on to become Royal Guard members. Hikifune joined later of course.
Also in Naruto the Sage of Six Paths was the one who developed Ninjutsu and passed it down so the idea of Nimaiya passing down the techniques to making a Zanpaktou isn't so out of the wild.
I still wonder what the Monk guy made to become a Royal Guard? Kido? Looks like it imo. Also Shutara probably made some scientific advancement as she did know Mayuri.
I haven't had a good laugh from Bleach since forever. This chapter was so funny. It's slow, yes. But we needed it, considering the tone at the beginning of the arc. It feels very refreshing.
(It also helps that Naruto was released earlier.)
BTW, someone needs to do a Silver Spoon crossover with Bleach now.
EDIT: I just wish Byakuya healed sooner. It would've been funny if he gorged down the food just like Renji and Ichigo. Rukia's reaction would be icing on the cake.

The first half was nothing important, it was mildly humorous. It was the end of the chapter that revealed some goodies. It's nice to know the historical significance of the Royal Guard; in a sense they're living legends, individuals that have contributed something of great significance to SS. The idea that we're going to meet the creator of the Zanpakutou is completely awesome. Super excited about the next chapter.
There was enough progress in the story, combined with comedy and of course a very sexy hikifune. Now we know why the soul kings elected them to be his guards and finally we see the mysterious fifth member.
I am surprised, that the Zanpakuto had to be invented before shinigamis used it. I thought shinigami automatically materialize it with their spiritual pressure and reiatsu.
Cant wait to see the explanation.. Kubo is awesome, never expected such a comeback after fullbringer arc!
I just realized... isn't the core theory of the Gikongan quite similar to Fullbring?? Fullbring is the concept of using a soul from an object and turn it into your own?? what if Kirio "experiments" with Chad?? who knows, she might even be able to teach Chad to reach his full potential since the theory is similar.
wow. THe next guy created Zanpakutou. So what did Shinigami use before that? Did they actually use scythes? Plus, that guy loks way younger than Yamamoto. That's odd. I guess we got to see what Kirio actually looked like back in SS. I find it hard to believe she never did that when she was in SS (the purposefully getting fat part).

Comedy relief chapter but still moved the story along nicely, another last-page revelation that'll have people talking and speculating.
So the criteria for being in the Zero Squad isn't just power after all! You have to majorly contribute something to the history of SS. So should we take Kirinji's contribution to be that of healing medicine?
Nimaiya Ouetsu: guy who created the Zanpukto. I'm still trying to get the timelines straight, taking this into consideration.
So, maybe when Kyouraku suggested their combined power surpasses that of SS', he was referring to something other than the destructive force, which initially springs to mind.
It looks like Urahara and Mayuri weren't the only two true geniuses in all those years.
burning up fat everywhere except the boobs.... seems legit..
for a moment there we thought kubo might've let us down with an important female character who was neither cute nor voluptuous.. thank goodness he pulled through!
edit: i also like how her hair changes with her weight :
