Well, I like that his Bankai's a bit deeper than "my sword is supper hot and cuts everything." Kind of sucks for Hitsugaya, though.
Expand all images
>> No. 78051
Like dragon boy z needs his bankai to be unkillable
>> No. 78055
Isn't Hitsugaya supposed to not be able to use his shikai anyway? After his bankai got sucked up, didn't he have a page where he basically went NO MY SWORD IS DEAD while holding it up?
>> No. 78078
>Kind of sucks for Hitsugaya
it never sucks enough for that shit head.
>> No. 78079
So basically its Hitsugaya vs Assassin's Creed Quincy with neither being able to use Hyorinmaru?
Also, it finally makes sense why Yama didn't use bankai against Aizen. Aizen would have just trolled him until he incinerated all the other captains with his mere presence.
>> No. 78085
So Yamamoto's Bankai is basically a fire element Ichigo, with a focus on power instead of speed? That's pretty cool, actually, but now I'm wondering: Byakuya had said that a Bankai is always large, but this doesn't seem to be 100% true with Yamamoto. Regardless, some Captains are seemingly familar with how it works. Is Byakuya kinda low ranked or new compared to other Captains in that he never saw Yama's Bankai?
>> No. 78086
Maybe the answer is simply...Kubo isn't too great at keeping his continuity straight?
>> No. 78087

Did you miss the part where his bankai is passively killing all of soul society?
>> No. 78096

I had just menat that Yama's sword isn't necessarily large in size, even if it's effect is. Maybe that's how Byakuya defines big. Still, it's basically a fucking plasma katana, down to the whole "melt everything nearby thing" a real one might have.
>> No. 78098
I'm pretty sure everyone knows what Yama's bankai does in a hyperbole kind of way.
>Duuuuude, did you hear when the old man released his Bankai like, a gillion years ago?
>Nah brah, what happened?
>Fuck man, I knew an old guy who told me his dick FUCKING MELTED because of it, and he wasn't even in Seireitei!
>Awww brah, his Bankai must be fucking MASSIVE
Which is why they all know the heat is coming from Yama, but not that his bankai is a compressed one.
>> No. 78102
i hope this is foreshadowing to ichigo's absurd next version of his bankai which ... what... uses the light and darkside of the moon as an inspiration for his power? is it a yin yang thing? i don't understand but whatever he can rip apart reality and has armor made of silly fullbring cover and pure getsuuga tensho
>> No. 78146
Guys guys, what if
hear me out here
what if Yamamoto has a FINAL RYUJIN JAKKA?
>> No. 78156
That would destroy soul society.
>> No. 78210
>out of nowhere, skeletons

>> No. 78213
Eh, even when something neat is happening the pacing is still completely garbage. There isn't a fight in existence which requires 7 pages of making faces and smack talk.
>> No. 78214
Kubo stop making this character cool, you're just going to off him.
>> No. 78216
I... thought this chapter was pretty awesome. I probably have terrible taste, but I'm really enjoying this fight, even if it being stretched out like crazy.
>> No. 78221
No, it's cool, I have great taste and I agree.
>> No. 78223
Yeah. I mean you know it's going to be lame in the end, but you know.
>> No. 78229
This chapter was indeed good.
>> No. 78230

I think we all agree that this chapter, in isolation, was pretty sweet. We just all know that Kubo will disappoint us in the end, so we're doing our best not get excited about it.
>> No. 78231
If Kubo actually does refrain from Kuboing up, and actually lets old man Yama kill the shit out of the Quincies while Ichigo's locked up, to show that while he does have ridic main character powers, the Soul Society has existed for a long-ass fucking time without his help, and they can, in fact, survive without him

I will be more impressed with him than I've been with a mangaka in a while.
Not because it'd be breaking any new ground, after all, I'm pretty sure that's more or less exactly how Yu Yu Hakusho ended, but because it'd show that he's learning.

Although whether it'd be that he's learning how to write, or learning what parts of other good manga to rip off, I don't know.
>> No. 78235
Thing is, no matter how cool that'd be, Ichigo is still the main character. This entire series is about his journey. Whatever the last big battle of this story arc is, he has to be the one to fight it. That's not to say he has to fight every battle; Bleach has a long history of secondary characters having some decent moments in the limelight, and I wouldn't mind Yamamoto winning here one bit. But if Stache-Face here really is the big bad, then killing him now kind of leaves us with nothing for the main character to do except tie up loose plot threads.
>> No. 78237
It would be hilarious if, in the end, Bleach returned to being a YYH clone.
>> No. 78238
Ichigo is the designated main-character, his journey is over, he has no interesting plot.
The only reason he shows up and beats the big boss is because hes the 'main character', the series could very well do without him at this point
>> No. 78247
it would be better if kubo tite used this period of no-one-gives-a-fuck-about-ichigo to give a proper ending to zombie powder
>> No. 78251

There is an approximately 0% chance of that happening, especially since this is the final arc.
>> No. 78282
nope your basically saying that eveything in the past is the equivalent of whats been going on now

which doesnt seem to be the case
>> No. 78283
so you reckon in all of eternity no one ever decided to attack soul society until now?
hasn't that shit happened like 6 times since the series started?
I know.
I was just having a moment of wishful thinking.

>> No. 78325
Who the fuck cares?
Shikai Ichigo defeated Kenpachi.
Just accept that Ichigo is from bizzaro land and the only way to actually stop this juggernaut of power levels is to say "KUROSAKI IIIIICHIGOOOO,YOU LIEK TO FIGHT" at which point he will begin a 10 chapter introspection on whether he does or not before one shotting you.

This is how Bleach will end. I know because my dad works at Kubo and he says so.
>> No. 78391
Honestly the shinigami deserve some retributuion for thier despotic tyranny, its not like any of the series protagonists cares about all the shit they do.

I mean will even Mayuri recieve some judgement for his actions? He deserves to be slaughtered like a dog for what he has done, most logically by Ishida, but instead the series has treated him like an amusing prankster.
Even if his peers don't care about all his nazi-experiment shit they should at least care about his teamkilling for shits and giggles, those shinigami weren't even his subordinates.
>> No. 78393
Mayuri is the next CC, and everybody will applaude loudly at his nomination.
You know it's true.
>> No. 78396
If only he would steal Yamamoto's bankai only to burn to death because of it. Seems rather appropriate.

Sadly, I fully expected this.
>> No. 78500
But in a hilarious turn of events Aizen can no longer distinguish himself from other people or fully remember who he was, and thus alters his own memories becoming effectively useless! The series ends with Kubo forgetting everything that is happening and focusing on a slice of life finale of Aizen's daily life in spirit holocaust Japan.
>> No. 78501

Kubo when people went "lol maybe it was Aizen all along" they were making fun of you. You weren't supposed to actually do it!

I'm just imagining a big, exaggerated "NAAANIIIIIII????" every time I look at it.
>> No. 78745
So...5 special war potentials?
Kenpachi(lol worfed by a regular sternritter)
Ichigo(Trapped in a jail, but maybe not? considering the last page of the recent chapter)
Aizen(Told the Quincy to skidaddle because he ain't done being the main villain yet, no way he's gonna be someone's underling)
Who else? Unohana(crazy strong supposedly) or Mayuri(the man to go to for Quincy killing most likely) are strong candidates for the 4th.
The fifth is probably something retarded like Hitsugaya if he suddenly REALIZED HIS FULL POTENTIAL ON DA SPOT.
Definetly not one of the Vizard captains, those fuckers are basically jokes despite the fact that they should be Ichigo tier themselves.
>> No. 78746
this is me now. i have officially decided to stop reading this, because i just don't care anymore. i guess it's finally time to take the ancient rukia/ichigo prints off of my wall.

the artwork are based on ichigo for the first time releasing his bankai vs byakuya and rukia releasing her shikai on screen. they look so great together. i am sad.
>> No. 78762
People, stop reading this garbage. Even Sadomasochists at least know better ways to get their painful kicks than any idiot that tries to deceive themselves into waiting for Bleach to finally die. You aren't even setting yourself up for disappointment because you know he will kubo you.

It's time to move onto other bad series.
>> No. 78763
War potentials seems to be about people who don't seem to have known limits. I don't think Mayuri and Urahara are in because their powerlevel, outside magic and science, it rather limited. Unohana... probably has enough daten to be out of the list too. Hitsugaya could have been but he's currently fighting a sternritter and I think they would have said he's one of them by now (of course he's fighting a convenient mute enemy but still).
Ishida could be one. And maybe Orihime. Of course nothing prevents at least one of them to be a totally new character that would serve as a plot device to make the story go;
>> No. 78765
We haven't really seen Urahara doing much of anything, but it's safe to assume you do not want to ignore this guy or he will bring you down.
Youruichi could be a special War Potential, she was fuckin fighting bare handed and still going toe to toe with big hitters.
Also, I wonder why Aizen did not accept the Quincy proposition.
>> No. 78790
>Also, I wonder why Aizen did not accept the Quincy proposition.

Why would he? Aizen's plan seemed to be about breaking the current order to build something new and better at any cost.
So far we don't know the Quicy's objective but if they just want to eradicate the shinigami I can see why Aizen would be against it.
Quincy wants destruction.
Aizen wants construction.
>> No. 78851

I will admit.

The moment where Ichigo throws down his sword to basically tell the badguys running away isn't an option is a cool moment. A moment that maybe would have been better served by someone competent in pacing and story telling.

We already know they can't take Ichigo's bankai.

"Why" is a bit of a mystery, unless they can't take the other Vizard's either.
>> No. 78856

Actually, we do know why! It was stated earlier they couldn't steal something they didn't know the limits of, hence why the Quincies couldn't steal Captain Commander's bankai until he actually used it (as no one had seen it in use for ages). The most likely explanation, given kubo's writing style, is that Ichigo's bankai is "limitless."
>> No. 78859
Basically it boils down to 'Ichigo is the main character' like every other time he gained a random power or beat someone who should have been much stronger than him.

Being the main character is normally a reason why you kick the most ass in shounen, but literally Ichigo's superpower is 'being the main character, thus no-limit/superior' isn't it?
Its started to feel a little...tacked-on? Ichigo is kind of boring and needless as the main character, and the only reason he has to be the one to save the day and beat the bosses is because he is the main character.
>> No. 78861
It was nice when Ichigo was just some punk-ass kid who was in way over his head and had to fight tooth and nail just to keep himself relevant to protect the people he cared about.
Now he's just some demigod who's only even in the picture because of his demigod status. He's just the only one who can win, thus the camera focuses on him, despite the fact that his story is long since over.
Argue what twists and kills and worfs are bad writing all you want; what makes Bleach really poorly written is the fact that the main character literally no longer has any relevance outside of being the main character.
Naruto still has rivals and enemies that have been around nearly as long as the series, still has dreams he has to accomplish. It may have some shitty twists and storytelling, but it at least still has a reason to exist.
Ichigo beat his rivals. He protected his loved ones. He got strong. He solved his mother's death and that was something he didn't even know was a mystery. There's no reason for him to still be around. But he is. And it's boring.
>> No. 78862
Ichigo's problem isn't that he's the MC, but more that he's special in so many ways it's overkill. His nature his not only extraordinaire, he's a major plot point that will probably be the key of everything. He's more of a device at this point than a character. That's the problem. The story didn't have enough slice of life and interaction after the SS arc to make him develop in anything else than a super powerful weapon.
