As a African American...I find Nimaiya's character rather offensive..stereotypes like this one greatly displease me come on Kubo
Well, the chapter was semi-okay. We could of predicted that this Royal Guard was going to put them through some type of test. A survival test. The both of them might have a little bit of difficulty fighting without their weapons, but Ichigo has other powers (Hollow&Quincy) and Renji could use hand to hand combat or Kido. I wasn't the least bit surprised when that RG said their Zanpakuto receives no love, so in turn they weren't able to distinguish Zanpakuto from Shinigami. However, I do remember seeing Renji communicating with his Zanpakuto several times in general, so you'd think he would at least be able to recognize the difference. As for Ichigo? All I can do is SMFH because we know how he loves to ignore communicating with old man Zangetsu on a regular basis unless he's in an extremely dire situation or he just got his ass handed to him by an enemy. Ichigo deserves to be punished.
What the hell is Naimaiya referring to when he says "10, 9,8,7,6,5 and in the end 3'? My take is he's talking about creating zanpaktuos in sets. Like first set of 10, then 9 and so forth? And of course Meru chan is the materialization of his own zanpakuto.
Pretty funny chapter, although nothing much 'till the end, much like the chapter before. That said, it's a nice set up for the next one. Oetsu is a pretty interesting fellow.
As an aside, I do hope Renji is the first one to figure out the trick and let Ichigo play catch up for once.

Ahahahahaha, this chapter was awesome and the Zanpakuto guy sure is a cracker. XD
LOL, when Ichigo saw all those sexy girls () must have thought this all too good to be true, hence saying what he said. XD
Anyway it seems like this time Ichigo and Renji will have an harder test; wonder how they will pass it.
P.S: Poor Kon, he is always dragged against his will. LOL
For a few moments there, I started to worry that he was a complete idiot. I'm hoping we get to see something new from the Zanpakutous, at least in terms of the challenge presented to Renji and Ichigo.
this guy reminds me of a mix of stinkmeaner and a pimp named slickback (smh)....damn shame but it doesnt surprise me

Agree about Renji being the one to figure out the aim of this training. would love to see something like that for once.
It'd be a huge pain in the ass to have to actually forge all those swords all the time anyway. We still haven't seen how the transition from random nameless zanpakutou to a unique zanpakutou happens, though.
1.) It's dark, so they probably need to learn to differentiate between themselves and the spirits so they won't end up hitting each other.
2.) While fending off multiple spirits, they will most need to materialize a weapon or something to fight with as Kido won't have and effect and both suck at the art anyway. That or they need to tame the wild spirits, showing Oetsu that they have what it takes to handle their spirits.
I personally think the zanpakuto spirits could be more wild than all of the shinigami actually realize. They are sentient being with their own aspirations for crying out loud.

Wow, that dude is so cliche black again, it's a pain to see.
I'm curious what kind of challenge it will be, some trust games, or a fight after all? But I'm more excited to see Shutara's palace finally. I personally think it's the most interesting guard.
okay,the worst chapter of this week is not naruto: bleach is even worse . jeez,this volume reminds me of the 49th,with the beginning of the foolbringers. notwithstanding the first one was great with kyoraku's promotion and unohana's appearance,these sucks...
