Urahara's method doesn't involve any of that. It was just stabbing a dummy-like thing with your Zan, no broken Zans involved. The methods are too far apart for one to be based off the other.
My theory about Kenpachis Zanpakutou might be correct after reading this. Yachiru might just be his real Zanpakutou.
I don't think this chapter was a waste if it builds up to that part.
This chapter is the canon confirmation that Zanpakutous can assume a figure and live normally. The serious girl is the pimp's zanpakuto. The chapter was good but the last chapters since Ichigo's fight against Kirge were so awesome that this feels a little "meh" to me.
I'm still not 100% on it though since we saw her when she's little, then again who knows.
Not sure if anyone said this before but is it just me or does Nimaiya reminds anyone of Bee from Naruto?
Sure does to me...
For someone who's stronger than all of Gotei 13, they all sure look and act too much like kids. I don't know why Zangetsu would be mad at Ichigo, unless it's because he lost his powers on purpose. Maybe that's why he still hasn't made contact ever since he got his Shinigami powers back. As for Renji, well, we had little canon experience with his Zabimaru but from the looks of it, they got along pretty well.
Bleach's comedy is progressing. It's good to have funny chapters before the next fights with the quincies.
i dont think yachiru can be kenpachi zanpakto....
Yachiru is very friendly with him and loves to see him fight but when he fought ichigo zangetsu said that kenpachi blade is crying (something in that fashion)..so i feel it is very unlikely that yachiru is kenpachi's zanpakto...
Not enormous story development, but a fun introduction.
Now, against all those girls in.. "the paradise", Kuchiki Byakuya should have showed up
I wonder how all those Zanpakuto girls are made now or more importantly, how they look cheerful, unlike the one that scolded Nimaiya, that is, most likely his own Zanpakuto.
Since he said "My swords ain't for weaklings", it's an indication for me that not all Zanpakuto in use is forged by Nimaiya himself.
Such a good chapter. Its nice to have all this comedic relief now cause knowing kubo, when we finally get back into the fights it'll be really serious. Next week is probably the beginning of such a mood. I can't wait to see the spirits but i think its the perfect cliffhanger for a three week break cause its exciting but its not going to be agonizing to wait for the chapter.
The reason for that is very simple: As one of those Guards stated, it's the special achievement that those guys have, like creating Zanpaktou, that earned them a place in the royal dimension. So I don't think that all of them are the powerhouses that they're made out to be.
And remeber, Kubo once said that the Espada are stronger than the Captains or something like that. However most Captains still soloed those guys... He's not that consistent when it comes to powerlevels, or -comparisons.
how can be a zampakuto creator younger than Yamamoto was? Kinda doesn't make sence
When it comes to personality pretty much all vice captains clash with their respective captain but not these 2, their cut from the same cloth so to speak. A coincidence? Maybe but I don't think so

Oh, a smile formed on my face when Oetsu said that those honey-chans were zanpakutous.
I loved the zanpakutou fillers from anime a lot.
Oh, i miss tensa zangetsu sooooooooo much. I hope he appears.
