Recap: Fangirls nosebleed over Seijuro, while what exactly happened on the mission that went bad was revealed. Muyomi along with a mysterious woman and man now have the the blood of the Captain or Former Captain of squad Eight on their hands. In other news, Yukimura met face to face with a powerful arrancar in the Arctic. How this all ties together and more will be revealed...hopefully.

The stars in the night sky shined beautifully as cold autumn wind blew across the Seireitei. The serene beauty of the weather along with the tranquil atmosphere made many Shinigami think it was the perfect night. The captains of those shinigami, couldn't enjoy this nice weather much, as they were much to focused on other things. Each were getting ready for an event that only happen once a century, the fact it happened two nights after one of their own died, just made it that much more stressful. Each did their best to mask any emotion they had over the events, hoping they could make it through the event without breaking.

Tonight the nobles families would all be gathering to celebrate and pay respects to the four great noble families. As this was such a important event, only the most noteworthy and powerful noble houses were allowed to attend. The event would be held in an hall, reserved for only the most important gatherings in the Soul Society. It was a grand and it's sleek traditional appearance looked untouched by time. It's wooden interior waxed and polished, it's gleam shown off by the light.

Inside the main hall, many members of noble families all congregated. The room looked like a sea of beautiful kimonos and elegance. So far, none of the four great noble families had shown up, which added a bit of anticipation and excitement in the air for their arrival.

In the mix of noble blue bloods, was a woman with long silky blonde hair with dark tips. Her kimono was a light pink with a complex and impressive design of a tree blooming with many different flowers. Her obi sash had a cherry blossom design, matching the ones on the long selves of her kimono. Even her zori sandals had the design, the reflection off the floor making it seem like a garden was always around her.

“Yutaka-Dono, what a pleasure to see you here.” One of the noblemen in the hall greeted her.

She had idle chit-chat with the man, not really caring about him or what he had to say at all. She bid her time on idle chatter with people nearby, hoping for the guests of honor to show up soon.

After thirty minutes of waiting, the room became more lively, as it meant that the guests of honor would be entering soon. The other nobles all crowded around the entrance for them, waiting for them to grace the hall with their powerful presence.

“So they finally decide to grace us with their glorious presence, I wonder if any of these guys will faint from seeing them? They all are desperate enough to pull that attention hogging stunt.” Fumiko Yutaka said her self under her breath, hiding her face with her long selves.

The Akira clan was the first to arrive to the gathering, each member looking stunning and elegant as they entered the hall. All dressed in their clan colors of blue and white, each room the youngest to the eldest, leaving an wondrous impression on all who saw them.

The women of the clan wore kimonos that had beautiful designs based on water and colorful flowers with peaceful and gentle meanings. The single women of the clan having much longer sleeves and more elaborate designs than the married ones, which were more reserved and subdued.

The men wore black haori over their white nagajuban undershirts. Hakama and obi-sashs being sky blue. Each of them had a netsuke ornament of a crane hanging of their Obi-sashes. The entire clan's tabi socks were sky blue as were their zori sandals, save for it's white straps.

The current head of the Akira clan, Mizuhashi entered the hall with powerful protection on either side of him. On his right was Ryuu Schiffer, his colors being dark green and gray. To his right, the Head Captain himself, wearing his colors of gold and silver.

“Are you both sure you're able to function at an acceptable level for this event?” Ryuu asked, whispering to the other two.

“You're worrying too much, this is nothing.” The Head-Captain told him, enjoying a jaw-breaker while glancing over at him.

“Even if I wasn't, I have no choice but to come here.” Mizuhashi told him without a trace of weakness or discomfort on his face or body language.

Everyone looked at the Akira family along with the two captains walking alongside the head of the clan. The power and elegance just oozed from them, their expressions and body language just solidifying this view of them.

Fumiko resisted the urge to roll her eyes and scoff at the others watching them in awe. All they were were people with more responsibilities and duties than other people, that was all.

The nobles had a different view, as in they envied and aspired to be like the Akira clan. From the way they carried and conducted themselves to the way they made it seem like they on pedestal that only a god could reach.

Next came the Flashy clan, and just as their clan name suggested, their kimonos were very flashy. While the females of the clan wore beautifully complex kimonos. The males wore kimonos that went against the traditional “subdued and black” look. They wore dark red and green instead, nobody dared to point out their rebellion against the norm.

The head of the clan, Dre had Saiga and Zam at his sides,as they all entered the room. While Zam's colors where brown and black, Saiga's colors were more out there. His colors were green and pink. Pretty much everyone save for the captains already there were shocked at how...flamboyant their kimonos were.

While Dre and Zam pretty much looking like they were here to be sociable and enjoy the party, Saiga looked uncomfortable. He did his best to hide it, but his lack of a smile and look of not wanting to be there went noticed. The fact he was next to two captains that were known to be fun loving, just made it more obvious.

After them was the Dauc clan, who's kimonos...well, lets put it this way. If they all starting dancing or moving around at a fast pace with the lights flashing, people would have seizures. They were that colorful and vibrate. Now unlike the other clans, if you dared to say anything that upset the Dauc clan, you would receive the harshest punishment they could get away with. This made them the most feared clan of all, their wrath being legendary.

Narcisse was seen with Kida, she sticking out with having a Kimono that didn't look like a rainbow died to make it. The fact she was seen with him wasn't surprising, as the two were close enough that pairing the two off was pretty much common. The surprising thing however, was seeing Niche at his side in normal formal male kimono colors. Black with dark green being the colors, Niche clearly was not as happy as Narcisse to be there.

Much to Narcisse's pleasure, they were the talk of the room. Everyone talking amongst themselves at Dauc's clans arrival with two of the Gotei 13 Captains. Kida pretty much was just there, hoping this event would go down quickly and as painlessly as possible. Since she would much rather take a nap then watch the nobles kiss up to Narcisse for a few hours.

Niche meanwhile treated this event as a mission, his objective? Pretend to give a crap about these people for the allotted time-span, then resume his investigation on Golde's poisoning and ex-captain Dauc's involvement. This is what he told himself in the back of his mind as he tried desperately not to just hide in a flower pot.

Fumiko gave the clans props for being somewhat refreshing compared to the others, though still bet they were arrogant. Arrogance pretty much was common place in the world of nobles, where being told your not arrogant enough is seen as an insult.

Zam wasn't surprised that Kida and Niche both left Dauc to be borderline worshiped by the nobles there. He waved to them as Dre and Saiga met up with Mizuhashi, Ryuu and the Head-Captain.

“Well they seem to love him.” Niche said to all of them, glancing over to Narcisse, seeing him reveling in the attention he was getting.

“Does anyone know where Aozra is? She has to come to this event after all...” Ryuu asked and said looking around for her, paying no attention to the Head-Captain and Kida who were snickering.

“I don't think she's here yet.” Arc told him, noting that Niche and Saiga both looked very uncomfortable as well as stiff with their body language.

“Oh Narcisse is gonna have a fit over hearing that he wasn't the most fashionably late.” Dre said joking, making Kida stifle a giggle.

Since his name was spoken, Dac instantly heard Dre's comment over the nobles praising him. He quickly left his wannabe fan club to “discuss” that hadn't arrived yet.

“The spotlight loves my sexiness, so I show up fashionable late for everyone's benefit. Since nobody will pay attention to what comes after my entrance.” Narcisse told the group, making Kida pinch the bridge of her nose. “Oh here he goes...”, she said exasperated.

“Ryuu, you're smart. How can his ego fit in this place without crushing us all to death?” Saiga asked mockingly.

“Magic.”

Everyone turned and looked at Ryuu, slightly surprised at his answer, Kida and Dre struggling not to laugh.
“The only magic around around here is the magic of my presence gracing this party.” Naracisse countered, earning a chuckle from Mizuhashi.

“He's getting better at answering stuff now. He didn't even bring out charts this time.”, with that, the captains gather laughed or smirked at Mizuhashi's input.


The party was going along smoothly as it could go, save for four captains being missing. The word about Senny's death still hadn't got out yet. The fact it's been two hours and still the final three captains left, hadn't shown up. Niche and Ryuu tried getting their squads to contact them, but had gotten nothing back. Niche tried to escape and see what was wrong for himself, but sadly the nobles wouldn't leave him alone long enough.

All the captains were pretty much told to behave and not to do anything that would offend the nobles. Head-Captain even went so far as to threaten cutting off their candy supply if they did. Now while Niche wasn't a sweets man, he knew there was more to that threat then on it's surface.

The party hit a snag however, when Azora came crashing through the east wall, nearly going straight through anything in her way and crashing into the west wall. The captain's quickly rushed to her to see what was going on. They swore Senshuken would have made her use the door.

Her hair was was in a mess, strands loose from what once was her bun hair-style. Her light blue kimono with crimson red river design was oddly untouched and undamaged from the crash.

“I'm so happy I got stuck with Oji-chan and Sei-chan! They always get the most bat **** insane people attacking them!” Aozora said cheerfully as she got up in an uncomfortable looking style. “The spell they used on this thing is so restricting, I can barely move! This handicap is awesome!”

The rest of the captains looked between her the hole in the wall she made, “ What's going on!?”

Merry Christmas.

Exactly the reason why I like Maths/Physics over Biology. It's just so intuitive.

Hmm, I'll remember that. Though I'll probably ignore it.

SO.

Remember how I said I got an iPhone? Well I decided to go ahead and buy the digital copy of the first few Bleach manga volumes... So far I have the first 6, and I'll be re-reading the entire series... I'll buy the volumes as I go. I do already have SOME of the physical copies, but I might as well show my support. They ARE cheaper on vizmanga, AND I can get them via iTunes gift card credits so that works out nicely.

I just made this relevant by posting about Bleach. YAY.

*is awesome*

You know the spell check suggestion for Zanpaktou was "plankton"

as apparently the only member of this club with any sense of a festive spirit:


MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!



As a future Registered Nurse, I have to take the class. Now I've taken it once before, I always look at the labels of all the medicines I take and actually know what majority of them do.
such a smart cookie :)


Hey guys,


Been incredibly busy most of the time, and now I have 'holidays' and I'll be even 'bezi-er' (See what I did there? A math pun. -Oh god, run for the hills).

Anyway, I might disappear for some time (as in, I won't even be able to lurk around the forums as I usually do). Got 3 big assignements in due for January, plus exams running from January to the first week of February. I sure know what to spend my 'holiday' on. XD


So yeah, don't trash my flower pot in the Captain chambers, please.



Otherwise, I agree with 'dropping the fullbringer' arc. Read last weeks chapter earlier this week and it's terrib-ad. >.>



Ciao, I'll be back after my exams. (Though, those who have me on MSN/Live will probably see me online now and then)

what schooling system are you in that you still have exams????


I DO constantly check the club. I just don't post. Since everyone else is coming back from the grave, I figured I might as well. I don't hate Fullbringer Arc as much as everyone else, just cause I embrace my little kid side with anime/manga. From an analytical standpoint...well...I prefer not to analyze it.

For me, Finals (Well, end of semester.) start on Friday the Thirteenth. Yeah. And right after finals, next semester starts. Oh the joys of high school.

And I have break the next week, but my mom wants me to study all through break. Yeah. NO.

Spirit Theme Song

I could'nt find any. So...Stealing an OST from KHR.

Ohai. Kind of posting a half-reply to this. Cause I want to get post #5000. :p Take that, ILPy

More so because I'm on the phone. And it's a painintheass to quote and reply to everything.

First. Welcome back Ed!!! :D And rotrum.

... Oh hai there too Dac. And min. XP

>Finals?
Mine were great. I got to skip Chemistry. Writing had no finals. Only subject was bio, and it's not really hard since the professor gave us review questions which were basically the same as the finals question, so it basically was a breeze.

Then again, my uni uses the quarter system and I'm already in the second quarter. Before the break, it was the first exam for the quarter, not the finals.

>Fullbringer arc
Personally, I had nothing against it. The logic behind it is... well, questionable, but we did have some great moments which I can't mention cause I'm too lazy to spoiler it. So all in all, it's not really a total loss. To me anyway.

>Dac
Idk, as far as I remember, that's the first time the topic has been brought up. Before this I think they were the character's own theme song.
Though the most common one is your favorite character

Google+? hahahadafuqisthathahaha I... knew of it, but never really cared.

hahahahahahhahahaha, you would just post to get the 5000th post :P
btw, I am in New York ^_^

your uni is EASY! man, i am almost jealous (i say almost because mine has a higher ranking >:) )

I feel like fave character is an OK one, esp when they introduce new characters. but until next summer when i remake my zan, as i do yearly, i will probably recycle answers :P though i am really attractive/random

and GOOGLE+ IS AWESOMENESSS!!! YOU MUST GETTIT!!!!


Happy Christmas guys :)
Someone write a Christmas special fanfic?
dammit ILP! this is why i have facebook and google+, you need to contact me for this kind of thing, i would totally have taken this project on!

maths/physics is just excessie hatred of memorisation :P although mathematical proofs, when you learn how to do them are super challenging and kind of, in a SUPER GEEKY NERDY way , fun :)

well, in my defense, he doesnt have facebook :P or google+

I felt like bieng first to talk about a chapter for one.

Welll...That was extremely cliche. Like, really cliche. I mean, I knew that they were all alive, but the Tsukishima and Sushi part was..a bit much. I kinda saw the Yukio one coming, I think The Sniper disappeared and sent back a shyteload of money to his family some years after he left. Not sure why Jackie's Fullbring died.

Kind of wondering where the The Doctor is, no one is planning revenge. I was actually expecting Tsukishima to go do that.

Overall....THE FULLBRINGERS HAD ABSOLUTELY NO POWER OR WEIGHT.

I like Pokemon (...)
26th December 2011, 6:00 PM
MANGA IS OUT! It's a boxing day miracle!
3 pages of Tsukishima just going "WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME GINJOU?!"

Oh yeah, Sushigawara. I forgot that they had a close bond with each other.

Okay, so everyone lost their powers. Only Ginjou and Giriko actually died. And for the moment, Riruka is staying with Ichigo and co.

That's... it. The only thing I really liked was Sushi's sweet little "YOU'RE INVINCIBLE, BRO!"



Recap: Fangirls nosebleed over Seijuro, while what exactly happened on the mission that went bad was revealed. Muyomi along with a mysterious woman and man now have the the blood of the Captain or Former Captain of squad Eight on their hands. In other news, Yukimura met face to face with a powerful arrancar in the Arctic. How this all ties together and more will be revealed...hopefully.
Oh yeah... This is old XP
If you want, I'll fix up all the grammar and stuff later.


Tonight the nobles families would all be gathering to celebrate and pay respects to the four great noble families. As this was such a important event, only the most noteworthy and powerful noble houses were allowed to attend.
While this is quite a nice way to introduce the Head of the Great Noble Families along with 2 of their closest Captain friends, I would kind of expect that the G13 would be regarded as noteworthy and powerful enough.

“Yutaka-Dono, what a pleasure to see you here.” One of the noblemen in the hall greeted her.
Do we know her?


The Akira clan was the first to arrive to the gathering,
Not surprising. In fact, with the order, I was excepting MC to come second. But besides that, it makes sense.


The current head of the Akira clan, Mizuhashi entered the hall with powerful protection on either side of him. On his right was Ryuu Schiffer, his colors being dark green and gray. To his right, the Head Captain himself, wearing his colors of gold and silver.
Wasn't the Head-Captain poisoned? Why did you choose Golde as the second Captain to be with Mizu? I can understand Ryuu, being his twin and all, but Golde?

Next came the Flashy clan, and just as their clan name suggested, their kimonos were very flashy.
Haha nice.

While Zam's colors where brown and black, Saiga's colors were more out there. His colors were green and pink.
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeh?

After them was the Dauc clan, who's kimonos...well, lets put it this way. If they all starting dancing or moving around at a fast pace with the lights flashing, people would have seizures.
That fits.


The surprising thing however, was seeing Niche at his side in normal formal male kimono colors.
That is surprising, I wonder why.


“Does anyone know where Aozra is? She has to come to this event after all...” Ryuu asked and said looking around for her, paying no attention to the Head-Captain and Kida who were snickering.
Haha, aww.

“Ryuu, you're smart. How can his ego fit in this place without crushing us all to death?” Saiga asked mockingly.

“Magic.”
I just looked blankly at this.


“He's getting better at answering stuff now. He didn't even bring out charts this time.”, with that, the captains gather laughed or smirked at Mizuhashi's input.
Haha, that is actually true.

The party hit a snag however, when Azora came crashing through the east wall, nearly going straight through anything in her way and crashing into the west wall. The captain's quickly rushed to her to see what was going on. They swore Senshuken would have made her use the door.
I am not surprised. Not surprised at all.


“I'm so happy I got stuck with Oji-chan and Sei-chan! They always get the most bat **** insane people attacking them!” Aozora said cheerfully as she got up in an uncomfortable looking style. “The spell they used on this thing is so restricting, I can barely move! This handicap is awesome!”
She really is a Kenpachi.
This review sucks. I'll give a better one on MSN.



You die. I'm driving to DC and I'm going to kill you. I mean pink and green. Really? Brown and green or black and pink maybe. But pink and green. Plus playing lap dog to Flash, you die. You die to death. No really, I thought is was pretty decent and look forward to the next.


So, for Christmas I got the DVDs for season 6 of Supernatural,
He doesn't live in DC xD
And Supernatural, yes.

Indeed. I think Zam, Kusari and I are part of the Supernatural fan club.

Don't crucify me upside-down or anything, but I really loved the Fullbring arc. I'm kinda glad its over, but it was an awesome story with a nice end XD

I loved Tsukishimas total breakdown. And I totally thought that kid was gonna kill him.

I figured Riruka wouldn't die or even be that bad :D

Anyone got any ideas whats next?

I think you explained why before; you don't analyse into the story and plot as indepth as we do, so you don't complain about logical fallacies/poor story telling as much as we do (or even see it). Hell, I'm sure if I saw that when I was younger and not an overanalytical arse I'd definitely enjoy it.

Mm, his ending was not so bad.

As for what's next... more focus back on Soul Society. Now that Ichigo can see spirits again, there's no real excuse to put the spotlight back on them, and see what's happened after Aizen. And it will give Kubo some time to show off a few more makeovers, I think. Plot wise, perhaps a bit more on Ukitake and the Substitute Shinigami...?

Update the first post nao.

I lurk here too, I'm lazy to post. Or sign in.
How's everybody? :D
Glad to see eveyone here again!

Was done with Mid-Terms last week, except failed in Add. Maths..

I had an okay Christmas, did nothing except attend a weird, weird party at night.
Not that much presents :P
Just few cash, and some games.
I turned down the option to buy an iPhone 4s. Now I regret it -.-

Manga? No comments, really. This whole arc was a rollercoaster, mostly going down.
I'm glad it's over. I didn't like it, at all.
Trollkishima's crying about dead homosexual lover was funny.


Other than that, I got engaged 4-5 years ahead of time..

Tsukishima is alive, and a crybaby.
Moe is alive, and is Tsukishima's pick me up.
Jackie is alive, and lost her powers.
Riruka is alive, thanks to Ichigo and Co.
And Yukio is going back home and, was let go scot-free. I assume he got off scot-free.

I found it boring though. Somethings were explained, but nothing to "big".




such a smart cookie :)


Nope, just curious.




and GOOGLE+ IS AWESOMENESSS!!! YOU MUST GETTIT!!!!


I still refuse to use mines.


MANGA IS OUT! It's a boxing day miracle!

Okay, so everyone lost their powers. Only Ginjou and Giriko actually died. And for the moment, Riruka is staying with Ichigo and co.

That's... it. The only thing I really liked was Sushi's sweet little "YOU'RE INVINCIBLE, BRO!"


I thought Jackie was the only one to lose her powers? Meh well, maybe I need another run through.

The song "You're The Best Around" came to mind when he said that.





Indeed. I think Zam, Kusari and I are part of the Supernatural fan club.


Wait... theres a club?

Hmm... Reading through it again, it's only outright stated that Jackie (and Giriko, but he doesn't count). I just got the feeling that "Our Fullbrings were the only thing that connected us" meant "now that we don't have them, there's nothing to connect us". I don't think we'll ever see them again anyway, though...

I think so.

Of all the chapters this arc, of every single retarded ****ing twist this story has taken, this chapter is the one to make you quit reading? This was quite possibly one to the most reasonable chapters of the entire Fullbringer **** and that makes you hate it. I'm starting to get the feeling that, despite your constant mention of how crappy the story has gone, you prefer it when it makes no sense at all.
Yes, you could say that this chapter (which would now be the previous chapter) made sense in a way. But I don't recall stating that to be my reason for quitting. Most of the previous chapters have made no sense as well but I could still bear them because the parts that made no sense had little bearing on the actual story and were not made out to be very important plot points.
For this one chapter, everything that did make sense felt incredibly contrived, the flow of the story made for horrible delivery of these plot points, and to add to that, there are still quite a few nonsensical things put in there as major plot points.
If anyone can explain to me how Ichigo saved Ginjou by killing him, please do so.
You may also want to explain why Riruka inserted herself into Rukia since at that point in time, she could not have known what was going on to the other Fullbringers.
That second point is not too important, but that first one...I just don't see how! All Ichigo did was cut him in half! Did they ever have any sort of personal dialogue where they exchange world views?
And Kubo tried to make Ichigo not changing a positive trait...hm...yea...I'm not too fond of the idea.
If we add the really terrible pacing problems Kubo has, this chapter becomes unbearable.
This chapter was a mess, and a pretty big one at that. It tried to resolve the arc in a meaningful way but only ended up being painful to read.
I might still post in this club, just not as often, and with less knowledge on current happenings within the Bleach canon.
If a new Bankai (Ginjou's bankai didn't even DO ANYTHING!) or zanpakutou appears, expect me to drop in.

I feel mostly the same way as Golde.
Overall, I enjoyed this arc and I'm both sad and happy it's over.

I'm disappointed that Fullbringers weren't expanded on more, but that also happened to Quincies and Bounts. :/

It would be kind of nice if Riruka sticked around...

It just seemed to be a generalized power and speed boost. :/
Tensa Zangetsu, Ryūmon Hōzukimaru, Kamishini no Yari, and Tekken Tachikaze (as far as we know) all do pretty much the same. xD

I turned down the option to buy an iPhone 4s. Now I regret it -.-

WHATTTTT!!!!!!!!

Yeah you SHOULD regret it, this thing is AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

*been using mine like non stop...*

XD

speculation stuff for coming chapters:
Seriously I hope they focus more on the SS... If not, KUBO YOUR TWITTER IS GETTING SPAMMED. XD

hahaha maybe.

Seriously though, I want to know what happened to all of them... Like, Aizen was locked up, everyone cleaned up the mess they made, people recovered and trained and stuff, some people got promotions and/or makeovers... BUT THAT CAN'T BE IT, RIGHT??? I DEMAND MORE, KUBO. I DEMAND MORE.

Moar plz.

And I wonder what Riruka is gonna do... If she's gonna stay with Ichigo's group or what... SO MANY QUESTIONS.

The chapters have been REALLY slow lately... >.< Story-wise, I mean. (THEN THERE'S THAT WEEK LONG DELAY BUT I WON'T EVEN GO BACK INTO THAT... XD)

...anyway.

Seriously, I read only 2 other series that come out weekly, Bakuman and Naruto... Both are going at a much faster pace... They're both more interesting too, with more happening in the same IRL timespan. (more happens per chapter)

I wish Kubo would stop stalling... >.<

That's a problem that's kinda unique to Bleach. Naruto is paced normally and Bakuman is considered very content heavy. Most other manga are also paced normally or are content heavy.
Really, Bleach is the only one that can stretch going Bankai to an entire full chapter through use of needlessly large panels filled with nothing but smoke and dust particles or giant energy blasts. (With the occasional mouth close-up that seems to happen for no apparent reason.)
I could probably put more content in two pages than Kubo does in 20...
I'm just a bit pissed off at the way he wastes pages is all...

I think so.

Actually Giriko died with his powers.
I interpenetrated it as, Jackie herself lost her fullbring, she has no reason to be around them and have any kind of bond she had since her family died.

And I don't see any reason for the surviving members of Xcution to lose their powers either. Jackie pushed a so-called "self-destruct button" on her powers, but I don't think anyone else lost theirs. I mean they could of lost their boosts from Ginjou, but I think Jackie is the only one who completely lost her powers.


Hmmmm...*strokes chin* quite interesting, I will look for it.

The current head of the Akira clan, Mizuhashi entered the hall with powerful protection on either side of him. On his right was Ryuu Schiffer, his colors being dark green and gray. To his right, the Head Captain himself, wearing his colors of gold and silver. loving how mizuhashi needs protection :P




After them was the Dauc clan, who's kimonos...well, lets put it this way. If they all starting dancing or moving around at a fast pace with the lights flashing, people would have seizures. They were that colorful and vibrate. Now unlike the other clans, if you dared to say anything that upset the Dauc clan, you would receive the harshest punishment they could get away with. This made them the most feared clan of all, their wrath being legendary.

Narcisse was seen with Kida, she sticking out with having a Kimono that didn't look like a rainbow died to make it. The fact she was seen with him wasn't surprising, as the two were close enough that pairing the two off was pretty much common. The surprising thing however, was seeing Niche at his side in normal formal male kimono colors. Black with dark green being the colors, Niche clearly was not as happy as Narcisse to be there.

Much to Narcisse's pleasure, they were the talk of the room. Everyone talking amongst themselves at Dauc's clans arrival with two of the Gotei 13 Captains. Kida pretty much was just there, hoping this event would go down quickly and as painlessly as possible. Since she would much rather take a nap then watch the nobles kiss up to Narcisse for a few hours.

LOVE THIS!!!!!



“Oh Narcisse is gonna have a fit over hearing that he wasn't the most fashionably late.” Dre said joking, making Kida stifle a giggle.

Since his name was spoken, Dac instantly heard Dre's comment over the nobles praising him. He quickly left his wannabe fan club to “discuss” that hadn't arrived yet.

“The spotlight loves my sexiness, so I show up fashionable late for everyone's benefit. Since nobody will pay attention to what comes after my entrance.” Narcisse told the group, making Kida pinch the bridge of her nose. “Oh here he goes...”, she said exasperated.

this conversation would totally happen :D and i feel like it has happened before except subsititute fancy noble ball with MSN conversation


overall, very well writte. beautiful descriptions.


Merry Christmas! Very Late..


I lurk here too, I'm lazy to post. Or sign in.
How's everybody? :D
Glad to see eveyone here again!

Was done with Mid-Terms last week, except failed in Add. Maths..

I had an okay Christmas, did nothing except attend a weird, weird party at night.
Not that much presents :P
Just few cash, and some games.
I turned down the option to buy an iPhone 4s. Now I regret it -.-

Manga? No comments, really. This whole arc was a rollercoaster, mostly going down.
I'm glad it's over. I didn't like it, at all.
Trollkishima's crying about dead homosexual lover was funny.

Don't crucify me upside-down or anything, but I really loved the Fullbring arc. I'm kinda glad its over, but it was an awesome story with a nice end XD

I loved Tsukishimas total breakdown. And I totally thought that kid was gonna kill him.

I figured Riruka wouldn't die or even be that bad :D

Anyone got any ideas whats next?

*high fives* And I thought I was the only one who thought he might indeed kill Tsukishima XD

That aside, there we have another chapter that I don't even want to begin understand the whole thing behind it. I'll just assume that this arc didn't happen at all because... I didn't understand the ending. XD Or maybe suffice to say that Bleach will ALWAYS have happy endings. Ah well. Or maybe not. But whatever. XD

That aside, I think I might just be like Jin and... well, not stop reading Bleach, but I'll probably follow it with less interest now. I only want to see Unohana now... IF Kubo screws up on that, I might just as well give up Bleach altogether. Not to mention the amount of work I'm getting is kind of increasing at an exponential rate.... sort of. XD

no, that's not a subtle hint at an attempted resignation. *coughatleastnotyetcough*


hahahahahahhahahaha, you would just post to get the 5000th post :P
btw, I am in New York ^_^

your uni is EASY! man, i am almost jealous

I would :p

Ahaha, cool. I've never been to the city myself. But I've been to other parts of the states. The irony. o.o

It is, sort of. XD Only it's fast paced since it uses quarter system, but that's gonna change in 2013. And easy for me since I'm only in the first year, and most of the stuff they teach in Chemistry and Biology are basically the same as high school..... so yeah.

So sorry for my inactivity. I've been playing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword since I got it for a Christmas gift (I know what you're thinking: "OH GOD MORE ZELDA FROM EON", and the answer is yes) and I am becoming thoroughly displeased with the current Bleach storyline and the way Kubo is handling the aftermath. To say that I'm disgusted would lower it five notches on the scale of my annoyance.


personally, i hate you. and that is an ugly banner. -_-

Now now Dauc, there's no reason to be rude to Kida's only seated member.

Also, just because something is simple doesn't make it ugly. The simplicity is nice, in a way.

@Ice Heart: Welcome back. You'll find things have been backsliding a bit, but at least most of us are here now.

@Kai: You got engaged. What. No seriously, WHAT. That's more than a bit unnecessary for a 17 year-old.

I think you explained why before; you don't analyse into the story and plot as indepth as we do, so you don't complain about logical fallacies/poor story telling as much as we do (or even see it). Hell, I'm sure if I saw that when I was younger and not an overanalytical arse I'd definitely enjoy it.

Mm, his ending was not so bad.

As for what's next... more focus back on Soul Society. Now that Ichigo can see spirits again, there's no real excuse to put the spotlight back on them, and see what's happened after Aizen. And it will give Kubo some time to show off a few more makeovers, I think. Plot wise, perhaps a bit more on Ukitake and the Substitute Shinigami...?


I don't complain, but I notice them plenty. I analyze. I can just appreciate a story without being critical and comparing it to all the other 'better' ones. I realize this arc sucks in comparison to like...every other arc in manga history. I just don't feel the need to incessantly ***** about it :p Like, I can compare things but I choose not to just complain

I feel like there might be something involving their robes...Yamamoto was talking about the robes....and I don't feel like he was doing it for no reason...>>



ORIHIME IS TOO DAMN EMOTIONAL. =P


I love how emotional she is. Like, I really love Orihime's character when she's not kidnapped/useless. Which is pretty much between arcs. Which is sad.



Really, Bleach is the only one that can stretch going Bankai to an entire full chapter through use of needlessly large panels filled with nothing but smoke and dust particles or giant energy blasts. (With the occasional mouth close-up that seems to happen for no apparent reason.)

OMG Tsukibana is a boy o.o

Ahem. It sort of changes over time. Tsukibana used to be like my mentor when I first discovered my powers. It's more like... how do I say... her healing capabilities aren't mastered the same way as other zanpakto abilities (via training) since you don't normally need to use it in battles, know what I mean? The first stages of my development were filled with constant incursions into my inner world, learning the curative capabilities that she possesses. After that, we pretty much got along well, though I still see her as my mentor, only less formal.

I think Rex kind of summarized my one paragraph answer into a line. XD

And I think I missed this topic:

Christmas present something zanpakto:

Cookies, what else? XD Chocolate chip and butter. Fish shaped. Just because. Or maybe a nice painting to go into the endless corridors in Tsukibana's castle.

Last night I got to catch a Bleach marathon on CN. I thought it would be awesome, but it actually had my favorite few episodes in it!! Ironicly it was the ones were the Zanpakutou start to rebel against the Soul Reapers.

Yes, a perfect way to end 2011. So how did everyone else celebrate New Years?

We eat cake together.

=P

...

It's so boring with no manga... >.<

...Actually, it's pretty boring WITH manga too, at least with this pace, it's so slow!!!

Seriously, I wish there was more. I wanted to be more active over this break, but there's nothing to really talk about... >.<

Oh yeah.

あけましておめでとう!!
(Happy new year!!)

Normally it's just me with my family, but with my parents on a cruise, I kind of just spent it sitting on my laptop I predict Da.C calling me boring and/or lame in 5... 4... 3...

What are your guys' predictions for the next arc?
I feel like we've already talked about it but whatever
I think Kubo really needs a boost of popularity, so I think he might just throw us back straight to the next plot, maybe start off immediately with (a) new character(s), and/or action.

Happy New Year, errybody. Let's hope we can last until 2013.

Spent my New Years hanging out with people until a little after midnight. After that I basically watched the Bleach episodes that Ice Heart mentioned, found out Kisuke's new dub VA is the same guy that voices dubbed Gin, surfed the web and went on a character creating binge. I now have and entire set of OC Captains, four Lieutenants and six Espada. (Looks like I get the damn trophy for Most Boring Night, ILP.)


Describe Your Relationship With Your Zanpakutou?

Terrible. I've said it before that Tenretsujin is nearly the worst person ever. Neither of us is particularly fond of the other, though his carrier (the girl holding the sphere) isn't all that bad. She doesn't talk though, so things would get boring. Either way, it's mainly a strictly business relationship.


What are your guys' predictions for the next arc?

I wouldn't mind some focus on what happened to the Soul Society over the timeskip. Would give us a chance to see what the characters look like and who the new captains are. Personally hoping for Shuhei and Izuru to get the position in their respective divisions.

Conflict-wise, I think Shinigami vs Shinigami fights are the best (and most logical) way to go. There's only two living Quincies and we've already spent years fighting Arrancars, so both of those races are kind of out of the question. Wouldn't mind a new race that can actually fight (More like Bounts, less like Fullbringers), Visored focus or Substitute Shinigami focus.

Describe Your Relationship With Your Zanpakutou?

Hmm.... He's kind of like... That old grandad who means well, trying to teach a young lad to live in the world, but you do kind of get a bit tired of listening to him sometimes.

Grandad panda?


me? rude? never :P

Of course, never in this new year. Which has been only 7 hours or so. :p


always sweet, kind and innocent? I AGREE :D

Aww, you're describing me? You're making me blush :3



Describe Your Relationship With Your Zanpakutou?
It is very... complicated. we are constanly teasing one another. we never speak to each other in English, but in a mixture of all the other languages we speak. We go shopping together, and hang out and behave like the cutest brother and sister couple :) oh, and on random occassions, our relationship becomes scandelous ;)

Cutest brother and sister couple and sometimes scandalous. Considering that your zanpakto spirit is a man who carries a coffin over his back, I'm assuming you're the... "sister"?

I wonder how you two frisk around with his huge coffin on his back. And have scandalous relationship.

*runs away from toxic baselards*


SPEAKING OF WEDDINGS! i have planned my ideal wedding :) I mean when i meet the lucky person, i will have to make some modifications, but yay :) marriage is so exciting :)

And you just said it above that...


oh right, and the love in the relationship.... hehe....

You are unfaithful o.o

Hello everyone! c:
Just dropping a quick message here, among other things, to say that i am WOEFULLY inactive and I probably need to catch up on Bleach, as I dropped it about halfway through the Fullbringer arc, once I catch up i'll try to be more active.
Oh and I kinda sorta lost my old MSN, so here's my new one

Uh..yeah! That's about it! c: So add me if you want, and maybe someone can run me up to the current on Bleach

Soroft
2nd January 2012, 4:58 AM
Right, so it's been awhile. I've got my Zanpaktou though, so it's all good. :p

My Shinigami is a fairly tall guy, ranging at about 6'0" or so, and is skinny on top of it. As for appearance specifics, he has blonde hair that's not short, but it's not very long either (maybe about the long of Ichigo's, but not spiky) and he has blue eyes. While he's not exactly scrawny, he doesn't pride himself on physical prowess, but takes pride in the agility that he has. He's a speedy fella, and that means that he's got to have a pretty good reaction time as well. He has a good amount of reiatsu at his disposal, well enough to do what he needs to do, but it's not like he's got enough to feed Africa single-handedly.

As for his character, he's sort of that 'head in the clouds' type of guy. He's laid-back as can be, and doesn't freak out over much. He enjoys things that appear interesting. He's honest about most things, and serious if and when he needs to be. It's not so much that he's pompous about things, it's just that he doesn't like to focus much on something that doesn't require it and prefers himself as he is typically.

Zanpaktou Name - Arashi no Kayou (Song of Storms)

Type - Pressure, specifically. A generalization to an element of some sort would be blasphemous and do it injustice.

Zanpaktou Spirit - http://pidge2571.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/song_of_storms_by_katedakokiri.jpg
This guy.

Release Command - Render unto the world, Arashi no Kayou.

Shikai Details - From the sealed form of an ornate-ish light-blue-hilted katana with a short silver tassel just beneath the guard (I'll figure out exactly what I want for the guard in just a bit), this Zanpakutou glows in a silvery light and slowly shrinks as I wave it melodiously. In the end, it appears as an ornate Conductor's Wand, providing it to be light-weight, small, and easily used because of this.

The Shikai basically allows me to manipulate atmospheric pressure by conducting various melodies (which are mysteriously heard even though it's just a baton :D) and expending proper amounts of Reiatsu. By speeding up the tempo, it allows the technique to be faster and by adding crescendos and decrescendos the technique becomes stronger or weaker, respectively. Of course, these modifications to the melodies affect the use of reiatsu.

Onto the techniques. I have yet to name them, really, but I'll get to that in a bit. Like I said, my Zanpakutou manipulates atmoshperic pressure, which means that I can do many different weather-based moves. For example, this makes it possible for me to create lightning, winds, ice and water (ice and water, however, require a source in the first place. I'll get to that in a bit) as well as some other fun little tricks. By manipulating the specific pressure, I can dictate where the lightning will strike and along which line to an extent. By moving around the winds, I'm not only capable of bringing in that cold front we all hate but I'm also able to create a vaccuum, which means that I can take the oxygen out of a specific zone and also push or pull things or create a sort of vaccuum-slash, almost with the same effect as Getsuga Tenshou except different, you know? Fire can be made almost with the same effect as lightning, creating enough atmospheric friction to be able to combust something. With the other atmospheric powers I control, that means I can also (you guessed it) maneuver the pressure to give the fire a little boost.

Like I said, ice and water require a source, but with atmospheric pressure control it's not that difficult to maneuver clouds and temperature fronts, essentially meaning I can bring those materials to myself anyway with a cost of reiatsu. Unfortunately, these two can't be controlled as much as the others can with only pressure, but they can still be combined with other techniques. For example, a volley of ice shards propelled by a vaccuum tunnel.

Oh, and at the cost of some bonus reiatsu in order to supply my movements with the capability to do so, these melodies can also be overlapped, played at the same time. It's no small cost, but I'm sure you'd understand the usefulness of trapping someone in a vaccuum and then adding a bit of lightning to the mix and whatnot. Or a hurricane, that works too.

http://www.wiizelda.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/normal_wind-waker-baton.png

That's the Shikai's form, basically. It's fairly sharp, so it's capable of doing some damage, but it's definitely not a good weapon to go head-on with.

I won't add a Bankai just yet, I'll hold onto that one until I'm sure it's good. Let me know of any errors or if I missed something.

Spent New Years eve at a club with my mates, did shisha [again - felt like Absolem] went to another club, blasted my eardrums out, felt the music in my lungs, chilled in a strip club [which was closed this time] went back to dance got back at 4.30am opened the door, got on the floor, everyone walk the dinosaur

Yeah... this random guy kept following Mevan around, tapped me on the back and said 'I don't think your friend wants to talk to me', I reply with 'that's because she's with me'

2nd January 2012, 3:41 PM
@Kai: You got engaged. What. No seriously, WHAT. That's more than a bit unnecessary for a 17 year-old.
wait ... WHAT?
My thoughts exactly. >.> Kai, don't take this the wrong way, but what the hell are your parents smoking?!

Kai (CyberBlaziken, I'll call him Kai because it's shorter) forget his password XD and he won't be able to be on his laptop until Friday, so he asked me to explain everything.

Basically, his now fiancee, Maha, and him have been childhood friends since they were 9, even their families have known each other for quite a while. They've been going out for 2 years and 8 months now. He wanted to propose when he was about 21, and get married after he had a steady job and everything, but parents being parents, they engaged them much earlier. Though he's managed to convince them to let him and his fiancee get married, what, 7 years from now? Soyeah. To be honest, I really can not see them marry anyone else, after having talked with them both for a good year at least (and that's almost everyday).

And now time for Q&A with Da.C:

SO ROMANTIC!!!!! have you met the lucky lady? do you two get along?
or did you ask her to marry you yourself?
if so, how many years have ya'll been dating?
OMG!!!! HAVE U GOTTEN HER A RING?????
CAN YOU PLEASE POST A PICTURE OF THE RING!!!!!
1. Yes, and they get along VERY well. I've talked to them both a lot, and godamn it's like something out of a movie.
2. He did propose himself at the time.
3. 2 years 8 months, from the 26th.
4. Yeah, I think he has
5. I'll see what I can do XD

Soyeah. Congrats bro.

HATER!!!
we are totally getting a joint bank acount my love. how else will i get to spend the money you make when you become successful?

This is exactly why I said she should be getting a seperate one :p


dont encourage her!!!

I will always encourage Kida when I think she's right or she needs a hand. Don't like it? Tough. :p


if she remains in the UK, she gets money in pounds. HAVE YOU SEEN THE CONVERSION RATE TO CANADIAN DOLLARS? i would be richer than i am atm!!!

Your eyes are turning into dollar signs atm. And it's blinding you to the fact that you're digging yourself into an even deeper hole.


oh right, and the love in the relationship.... hehe....

I'm going to say this in the nicest way possible.

But if you're too lazy to come up with witty combacks, shouldn't you be too lazy to attack him? After all, coming up with good combacks isn't hard.


Right, so it's been awhile. I've got my Zanpaktou though, so it's all good.

YOOOOOOUUUUUU took too long. I helped you design that thing what, five months ago? Six? Ah well, at least you got it done. Looks good, too.

No, not always. Remember my very first Zanpaktou?

I wish I could say I had that kind of fun. Unfortunately, my mother (in all her infinite wisdom) invited family over and made me stay and talk about the horrors of college. Parents seriously suck sometimes.


Yeah... this random guy kept following Mevan around, tapped me on the back and said 'I don't think your friend wants to talk to me', I reply with 'that's because she's with me'

3rd January 2012, 3:28 AM
So wait, someone's getting engaged? :| HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN GONEEEEEEE

@ ILP - Haha, I had thought that a bit, but you have to keep in mind that in order to use an ability I have to continue with the melody in order to do it, and a melody has to start up a move. So while they can be used simultaneously, they still have little gaps in the amount that they can do for cover-work. Basically, it's an all out one-way-or-another technique, and doesn't have much of a fail-safe. Get past the techniques it throws and it throws me into a bit of hot water, which is what is good about my Shinigami being agile for the cut-and-run aspect if need be. But to answer your question, there's still quite a bit that could be expanded on in terms of my zanpakutou, I've already had a few fun ideas. >:D

So, I missed an engagement, what else has happened?

Seems like errything is order with this post.

Welcome to the club, Grovyl. I'm Kusari, resident drunkard, loveable sexpest, all around badass and Squad 13 captain. Some call me Kus; others call me Kusa. Feel free to use my full name, either of the nicks or anything that's not too deragatory.

Just as a question, as we like to know, in regards to manga, do you read the stuff put out by Viz (or whoever it is in America) or scanlations? And for anime, do you watch at all and, if so, subs or dubs?

Most of us read the scanlations and watch the subs. Then you have me and a few others who watch both subs and dubs.


>and has to honestly be my least favorite of the three

This is perfectly fine. A lot of us have become annoyed at Bleach as of late, yet we still read/watch it.



Ok. Something Bleach that isn't a welcome. These should do:

Ah a new member huh. Well, welcome.

I'm Min, the lieutenant of squad 5... Umm that's my official position but I suppose I'm like acting-captain every since Flash resigned... XD (Introductions just got more confusing for me!! XD)

@ ILP's question (too lazy to copy-paste it, about the new arc predictions)

I sure hope for a new character or two... It'd be cool. But I would like something exciting and less, umm... dragged out... XD Yeah. No 3 pages of random grieving *COUGH*Tsukishima*COUGH* Yeah.

In other news, I have been re-reading all of Bleach. I'm on volume 3... XD Almost at volume 4!! I'm doing on the viz manga app on my iPhone so I'll have to buy each volume but since I am a fan who likes to support the manga I read and enjoy, it's not such a big deal... And I can use iTunes if I buy from my phone (which I intend to do) so it's pretty convenient. Basically all that means is that I need to not buy extra snacks/beverages/TOYS/GAMES/ENTERTAINMENT for my dorm room, and I won't run out of cash. XD

And yay!!! Blue is ALIVE. =D Imma add you. =P

Seems like errything is order with this post.

Welcome to the club, Grovyl. I'm Kusari, resident drunkard, loveable sexpest, all around badass and Squad 13 captain. Some call me Kus; others call me Kusa. Feel free to use my full name, either of the nicks or anything that's not too deragatory.

Coolio.


Just as a question, as we like to know, in regards to manga, do you read the stuff put out by Viz (or whoever it is in America) or scanlations? And for anime, do you watch at all and, if so, subs or dubs?

Haha, no. I read the scanlations, on Mangastream(as if there's any other site). I don't watch the anime, I don't really watch any anime because they take to long especially since I sped through this series trying to catch up.


>and has to honestly be my least favorite of the three

This is perfectly fine. A lot of us have become annoyed at Bleach as of late, yet we still read/watch it.

At least I'm not alone. I feel the Fullbringers had a lot more potential other than showoff dummies. Although they are going to probably come back, or even be the main villians/characters, they've been refining their abilities almost their whole life. They should have been more of a challenge.


Ok. Something Bleach that isn't a welcome. These should do:

Haha that second one is hilarious. I feel so welcomed! :D


Welcome to the Bleach Club 2! I am the Captain of the 12th Squad, I like Pokemon (...), but I also go by ILP/Ilpy/Ilpeh/Ilpizzy/Aielpy/Aaroniero/Anternero/Ant/Any other nickname really. I feel like I missed one.
And our 11th Captain is a fan of Shinji, and our 5th Lieutenant and 10th Captain are both fans of Hitsugaya too.

Can you go by Zommari? 'Cause you shouldn't. :D


Ohai. =D arceus03, Fourth Squad Captain, avid Unohana fan. Resident cookie baker for the Squad... and medic. Yeah. Welcome to the Bleach Club/

Nah, don't worry about bashing Bleach. XD Most of us aren't actually really happy with the storyline now as well, but whatever.

Hellurr.

Yes, a perfect way to end 2011. So how did everyone else celebrate New Years?

The same way I always welcome every New Year, with $200+ worth of fireworks.


Right, so it's been awhile. I've got my Zanpaktou though, so it's all good. :p

My Shinigami is a fairly tall guy, ranging at about 6'0" or so, and is skinny on top of it. As for appearance specifics, he has blonde hair that's not short, but it's not very long either (maybe about the long of Ichigo's, but not spiky) and he has blue eyes. While he's not exactly scrawny, he doesn't pride himself on physical prowess, but takes pride in the agility that he has. He's a speedy fella, and that means that he's got to have a pretty good reaction time as well. He has a good amount of reiatsu at his disposal, well enough to do what he needs to do, but it's not like he's got enough to feed Africa single-handedly.

As for his character, he's sort of that 'head in the clouds' type of guy. He's laid-back as can be, and doesn't freak out over much. He enjoys things that appear interesting. He's honest about most things, and serious if and when he needs to be. It's not so much that he's pompous about things, it's just that he doesn't like to focus much on something that doesn't require it and prefers himself as he is typically.

Zanpaktou Name - Arashi no Kayou (Song of Storms)

Type - Pressure, specifically. A generalization to an element of some sort would be blasphemous and do it injustice.

Zanpaktou Spirit - http://pidge2571.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/song_of_storms_by_katedakokiri.jpg
This guy.

Release Command - Render unto the world, Arashi no Kayou.

Shikai Details - From the sealed form of an ornate-ish light-blue-hilted katana with a short silver tassel just beneath the guard (I'll figure out exactly what I want for the guard in just a bit), this Zanpakutou glows in a silvery light and slowly shrinks as I wave it melodiously. In the end, it appears as an ornate Conductor's Wand, providing it to be light-weight, small, and easily used because of this.

The Shikai basically allows me to manipulate atmospheric pressure by conducting various melodies (which are mysteriously heard even though it's just a baton :D) and expending proper amounts of Reiatsu. By speeding up the tempo, it allows the technique to be faster and by adding crescendos and decrescendos the technique becomes stronger or weaker, respectively. Of course, these modifications to the melodies affect the use of reiatsu.

Onto the techniques. I have yet to name them, really, but I'll get to that in a bit. Like I said, my Zanpakutou manipulates atmoshperic pressure, which means that I can do many different weather-based moves. For example, this makes it possible for me to create lightning, winds, ice and water (ice and water, however, require a source in the first place. I'll get to that in a bit) as well as some other fun little tricks. By manipulating the specific pressure, I can dictate where the lightning will strike and along which line to an extent. By moving around the winds, I'm not only capable of bringing in that cold front we all hate but I'm also able to create a vaccuum, which means that I can take the oxygen out of a specific zone and also push or pull things or create a sort of vaccuum-slash, almost with the same effect as Getsuga Tenshou except different, you know? Fire can be made almost with the same effect as lightning, creating enough atmospheric friction to be able to combust something. With the other atmospheric powers I control, that means I can also (you guessed it) maneuver the pressure to give the fire a little boost.

Like I said, ice and water require a source, but with atmospheric pressure control it's not that difficult to maneuver clouds and temperature fronts, essentially meaning I can bring those materials to myself anyway with a cost of reiatsu. Unfortunately, these two can't be controlled as much as the others can with only pressure, but they can still be combined with other techniques. For example, a volley of ice shards propelled by a vaccuum tunnel.

Oh, and at the cost of some bonus reiatsu in order to supply my movements with the capability to do so, these melodies can also be overlapped, played at the same time. It's no small cost, but I'm sure you'd understand the usefulness of trapping someone in a vaccuum and then adding a bit of lightning to the mix and whatnot. Or a hurricane, that works too.

http://www.wiizelda.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10001/normal_wind-waker-baton.png

That's the Shikai's form, basically. It's fairly sharp, so it's capable of doing some damage, but it's definitely not a good weapon to go head-on with.

I won't add a Bankai just yet, I'll hold onto that one until I'm sure it's good. Let me know of any errors or if I missed something.

I like it. I thought that there wasn't much room for expansion, like ILP said. But after reading Eon's explanation, it's all good.


I'd like to join :D

I started reading Bleach a few months ago and stopped around the hundredth chapter because I got bored, then got back into it this past Monday, I finished it today.

Greetings and salutations, I'm Rex or Rekkusu or Rekks. Captain of Squad 8, newest Captain of the club.


To just give some info about myself, my favorite characters are Toshiro and Shinji, thiszachiru:Dis the third manga I've read after OP and Naruto, and has to honestly be my least favorite of the three, but don't get me wrong it's still awesome.

Well, if we're all being honest here... Bleach isn't one of my top favs anime or manga-wise, but I still find it fairly entertaining. If you don't analyze it too much.

Since everyone else in this entire club seemed to do it:

I think it'll have something to do with finding out the Kurosaki family past and what it means for Ichigo and stuff because of what Ginjo said. I hope Ichigo will go to Soul Society and see how everyone's changed, or at least see how the Vizards have changed. More Shinji and Toshiro! Alalala!

You're right in that they had more potential, definitely.
I've said this a few times, but one of Bleach's biggest flaws is that it's ONE BIG STORY. Bleach would have been much better if Aizen was the last villain, because it means deaths and people showing off powers. If you compare One Piece and Bleach; One Piece has lots and lots of tiny mini arcs within larger sagas inside the entire story. This makes it MUCH easier for a character to come, be involved, and disappear for a while, because the focus shifted a lot. With Bleach, it doesn't feel as right that no one really dies.

I sure hope for a new character or two... It'd be cool.

Except that Kubo has a LOT of characters to be expanded upon already. I'm still kind of waiting on the Captain-level shinigami to go bankai. Like, seriously. Basically what ILPy said.

I feel like Kubo just writes it as he goes along, more or less, but whatever. Most of the characters survived, so I feel they could come back. We do have Kiruka to hang on to instead of having the characters just disappear and reappear like you were saying. Maybe the next arc will be focused around Fullbringers, or maybe not. If Kubo plays his cards right, then I think we'll have a better manga.

Harribell, yeah. If she makes a comeback, I'm going "AWWWWWW YEAAAAAAA"

I doubt it. Idk, but my opinion is, people are getting a bit tired of the Fullbringers. Well, at least I am. While they do have the potential to be expanded upon, there's still a whole bunch of shinigami out there waiting for showtime Unohana

Sadly, that hasn't been the case until the previous chapters, so I doubt that's gonna change anytime soon =|

I would have thought that Isshin's past was just logical to put after Aizen, especially to help pad out the timeskip. Though I wouldn't complain if it comes.

Mmm. At the very least, more so than the other mangaka seem to. But something tells me the focus will shift away from the Fullbring.

BUT

Now I have my iPhone so I might be able to come on more... Don't expect a ton of posts, it's a pain to type with that thing, but yeah...

I wanted to mention though...

As I think I said, I have been re-reading Bleach.

And

Am I the only one who forgot that Grand Fisher became an arrancar (or at least started to) in the end of volume 3?

Maybe I just have an absolutely horrible memory, but... It's true, check for yourself...

So I wonder how far in advance Kubo planned out the series...

I mean, I don't think it mentioned "arrancar" but it did say something about his mask being torn off, after his fight with Ichigo at his mother's grave...

Not randomly.

I started to watch the English subs after [AS] starting showing re-runs.
So I never read that early part of the manga.

That being said I'm always here. I lurk. Luuuurk. And honestly, sometimes I can't help but be away from the comp for a few days (I have a life you know...and by that I mean school sucks and I have no life) so constantly reading pages is somewhat challenging.

Am I the only one who forgot that Grand Fisher became an arrancar (or at least started to) in the end of volume 3?

Maybe I just have an absolutely horrible memory, but... It's true, check for yourself...

So I wonder how far in advance Kubo planned out the series...
I figure quite early on when Kubo made the series, he had a brainstorm of all sorts of things he could do - including Arrancars, possibly Vaizards and all sorts of stuff like that. So he probably left it in there, either as epic foreshadowing, or as "if I get stuck and reread for ideas, I know I can use this".

Not randomly. We have a Captains' meeting for that But yeah, given that no older members have been more active than Grovyl and a suitable period of time has passed, he/she might as well become the next Captain. Though IIRC right now the "official" empty spot is Squad 5, and I think minchan would be the most likely candidate. But eh, we'll see, we'll see.
Mhm, though iirc, she'll follow more how Hinamori's seat is the seats really don't matter a whole lot. Plus we aren't in MASSIVE NEED to fill seats anyway.

Well, we can keep hoping, knowing that Kubo DID put a picture of Shinji in the pilot chapter cover, no?
I'll take a guess and say that wasn't epic foreshadowing. He probably was going to introduce him much earlier but had a change, possibly because of the editor, or the popularity was lowering... or whatever. If someone can check when something big happens early (first... 10 chapters?) or when the story diverts early. That might be a hint.

From looking at the rest of their art, they seem to be quite the Soifon fan.

I know. They're cute. Soi Fon and Hitsugaya, it seems. XD


Hey guys, figured I'd mention this as well. Tomorrow I'm headed back to college.In addition to this being a very weird semester (i.e., I don't actually know where I'm staying yet) my laptop is still out of commission, cause my friend who fixes it bolted out of town. So, it may be just a bit before I'm going to have the time to settle down at a computer.

Awww. See you around then :D


Mhm, though iirc, she'll follow more how Hinamori's seat is the seats really don't matter a whole lot. Plus we aren't in MASSIVE NEED to fill seats anyway.

When are we ever? It's not like we have tons of active members anyway. It's just... customary? lol


I'll take a guess and say that wasn't epic foreshadowing. He probably was going to introduce him much earlier but had a change, possibly because of the editor, or the popularity was lowering... or whatever. If someone can check when something big happens early (first... 10 chapters?) or when the story diverts early. That might be a hint.

Eeeeh, you never know. Remember Fura?


Ah, I remember seeing images like that.

:3


Alright, I'll PM with updates as well.

You'd make a good secretary. XD

We need a topic... Eh. *pulls a random one out of my brain*

What would be your Gikongan (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Gikongan)'s personality?

Feel free to add in the toy head as well if you want

Mine has a cat head (as the candy dispenser). He loves talking rubbish and cracking lame jokes. Starts his sentences with "Ano..." ("Um...")





... Weird topic is weird. Ah well.

Harribell, yeah. If she makes a comeback, I'm going "AWWWWWW YEAAAAAAA"

I doubt it. Idk, but my opinion is, people are getting a bit tired of the Fullbringers. Well, at least I am. While they do have the potential to be expanded upon, there's still a whole bunch of shinigami out there waiting for showtime Unohana

Sadly, that hasn't been the case until the previous chapters, so I doubt that's gonna change anytime soon =|

Is she still alive? I hope so. :D

Well, I don't mean they have to come back as soon as the next few arcs, but I definitely think they're coming back and I wouldn't mind them too. I do really want to see what's going on in Soul Society.


Welcome to the Bleach club, Grovyl! :)

She kind of is. Very much alive and kicking, that is. It was never exposed directly in the manga, but it was mentioned in the Bleach Official Character Book 3 UNMASKED instead. Or so her Bleach wiki page (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Hallibel) says. I'm kind of unimpressed that it wasn't really mentioned in the manga because... anyone not reading the Wiki/Character Book wouldn't know about it. Ah well.

Mhm, yeah. Though I really only want to see Unohana

What would be your Gikon (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Gikongan)'s personality?
(Feel free to add in the toy head as well if you want)
Hmm, my Gikon's personality would be like a stereotypical military private; strictly following orders and always saying "Sir, yes sir!"
He's very hardworking and devoted to me when he has an assignment to complete.
But when his assignment is over, or he's given some free time, he'll be very lazy.
The toy dispenser head is a cartoonish military private wearing a WWII era helmet.
His name is just Private, but I might create a nickname for him when I'm mad at him.

Not randomly. We have a Captains' meeting for that But yeah, given that no older members have been more active than Grovyl and a suitable period of time has passed, he/she might as well become the next Captain. Though IIRC right now the "official" empty spot is Squad 5, and I think minchan would be the most likely candidate. But eh, we'll see, we'll see.


To me it was, and probably will be for Grovyl. If all goes well, of course.



As I said, they're rumors. XD idrk. I think Kubo mentioned them in an interview or something. That's what I heard.

No matters, I'll read it.

So, it may be just a bit before I'm going to have the time to settle down at a computer.

That being said I'm always here. I lurk. Luuuurk. And honestly, sometimes I can't help but be away from the comp for a few days (I have a life you know...and by that I mean school sucks and I have no life) so constantly reading pages is somewhat challenging. It'd help me a lot in the future if we could PM me with updates. Please and thanks. Otherwise I'll just hafta keep copy/pasting from Ant >>

So, I bid you farewell for just a bit. Talk to you guys soon.

Awww, see ya around.

I would the Gringo dispenser and he would act like this guy in the yellow jacket. (http://youtu.be/2tAZxxUiQIY?t=1m23s) And I shall name him..........Leon.

Everyone's Back! Wooot

You all were notified about my.. er.. engagement?
I know it's big, and a bit too fast, but nothing's going to happen anytime soon or will it..

Welcome Grovyl to The Bleach Club!
I'm the Lieut. of Squad 7.
You can call me CyberBlaziken/CyberChicken courtesy of Cell -.- /Blaze/C.B/Kai *real name*
Anything's fine. Hope you enjoy here! And don't disappear..


To be honest, I really liked this chapter. It was nice to see some old faces. It hasn't really tied up the loose ends yet. I laughed when Renji saw Ichigo, for awhile. For a moment, I thought all the Captains were going to kick his *** out of the Seiretei. Kensei and Shinki xD They look fiiine. So we have Squad 5 and 9 with returning Captains. That leaves 3.. Oh, and the guy who was on the left of Yammamotou, who the hell is that? Love? Oh great, Ichigo with another of his noble deeds. -,-
I really do wonder what Riruka has to say to Ichigo..
Yeah, I liked this chapter. It was better than the last few.
Oh greeeeeaaat. 3 weeeks? Seriously? Goddamnit.

What would be your Gikongan's personality?

A cheesy, hopeless romantic. a lot like me..
Your average goofy looking persona, with a grin that never seems to go away. Never
His name, would be Kay :P The toy head is of a boy with black hair that has.. er.. hearts instead of eyes.


Now, I shall disappear.

kusari
11th January 2012, 3:24 PM
Best chapter in a while. We get to see some of the old faces, along with the new captains.

I am dis appoint abou no Captain Hisagi. Though Kensei does mor than make up for it.

Shinji as 5th captain. Meh.

Wiki says Rose has his squad 3 captaincy again. That's ok. I like him.

Other than that, it seems nothing has changed.

I like Pokemon (...)
11th January 2012, 5:38 PM
Looks like THIS was the final tie up. In all honesty, I really think that he could have squashed it so he could end it before 2012.

Urahara being Urahara XD

Aaaand she's gone. Of course.

I almost wanted/expected Ukitake to have a bit of a makeover.

Haha, Ichigo and Renji were funny.

Mayuri and Ukitake? The people most related to the badge thing, of course.

OHMYGOD KENSEI YESSSSSSS
Did anyone predict that? Because now that I think about it, that's actually one of the most logical choices.
So Shinji (as 5th), Kensei (as 9th), Rose (in the back) (as 3rd) as Captains.
Hachi might go back to the Kidou Corps, or the 4th Squad if he doesn't want to.
I figure Mashiro might want to stick with Kensei. Lisa might go back to Shunsui. Hiyori... idk. Might go into 5th, as Shinji's Lieut if Hinamori is still out of commission. Love is a big question mark. This is good, I'd like to see more of these guys.

I guess... that's just Ichigo being Ichigo.

So I guess the Ukitake stuff was true, probably almost entirely.

And Riruka disappears.

BREAK FOR THREE WEEKS WHAT.



You'd make a good secretary. XD
Someone said that before.
Oh, I know, I should work in a Swiss patent office!

What would be your Gikongan (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Gikongan)'s personality?

I'd use something similar to the Gringo on the page; just without the cigar.
He would be incredibly lazy. Barely doing anything at all. Which is perfect because I wouldn't trust anyone with my work.


To me it was, and probably will be for Grovyl. If all goes well, of course.
Possibly.

Eon Master
11th January 2012, 6:10 PM
Urgh. Cliche chapter. Horribly cliche chapter. I mean, yeah, some good things with Vizard Captains and stuff, and Renji and Ichigo's meeting was funny as hell, but eh. The premise of it was pretty bland and cookie-cutter-ish. Shunsui's little phrase of wisdom about growing up made me gag when he applied it to Ichigo of all people.

Ooh, new designs. Except they're not as good as their old ones. Blah.

I did like the bit with Riruka at the end, though. And Urahara at the beginning was so typical of him I couldn't help but laugh.

Here's hoping the next arc will be a bit better.

What would be your Gikongan's personality?

Hm...

His name would be Kohei (old soldier). He speaks with a very sharp, crisp tone and tends to be slightly loud (like a drill sergeant). He's very assertive and tends to swear a bit more than absolutely necessary. He also really hates whining and complaints. His candy dispenser head would be a military man with a dress uniform cap on.


Oh yeah, and Soroft is now my 4th seat. I knew him from before the club and I helped him design his Zanpaktou, so he just picked me because we were already friends, I guess.

arceus03
11th January 2012, 8:06 PM
Nothing much to say... Er..

Where did Riruka go in the end? She jumped off the building? XD
That said, I loved how her hair looked in the last two pages. Kinda makes me wish I have long hair just so I could swish it around like that

"Yo Renji" "Yo" XDD

Kensei changed his hairstyle again

AWWWWWWWWW UNOHANA (http://mangastream.com/read/bleach/44013055/13)

Deeply deliberate.. What does that mean?

3 weeks break WHEEEEEE
Here's hoping more Unohana in the future. That is all.


Seeing the Vizards back in place, you'd think Urahara and Yoruichi might return as well. Unless they're happy in the Living World, which, well, something Soul Society wouldn't allow. But then, that was back then before the Aizen stuff. Eh.

And we still need to know more about Isshin's past.

And Unohana.

PKMN Trainer Rex
11th January 2012, 8:49 PM
I like Ichigo's purpose strut, it was strong and yet casual. And Renji's "wait.....wut?" gave me a good chuckle.

It's good to see Kensei, Rose and Shinji again, and better yet, they're Captains again.

Soi Fong with the over reaction, kinda.

And I don't know why, but I felt something ominous the way Shunsui said "Apparently, he trusts us."

Riruka is "renewed", and just leaves.

Good chapter overall.

BOOOOO! 3 week break! Well, thats one less distraction for me when I try to study.




Deeply deliberate.. What does that mean?

And we still need to know more about Isshin's past.


In the scanlation I read, it was worded "carefully thought."

and yes, yes we do.

Grovyl
12th January 2012, 12:14 AM
Really awesome chapter, mainly because it had Shinji back as captain with a badass hairsyle and that I love new character designs, like after time skips. I feel like that's basically it. It's cool that some of the Vizards are back as Shinigami, although I hope all them are back. I wish Shunsui and Ukitake got new designs, but whatever.

I like how Kensei is rocking the fauxhawk like me, Kensei's my 2nd fav Vizard, so I'm glad he's back. Shinji's new shinigami design is the best. Bangs that are diagonal; brilliant. A tie with Shinigami robes; awesome.

Waiting three weeks? I don't think I can do it after almost 2 weeks. It's ridonkulous.

Just reading everyone's responses makes me think, what's so special about Unohana that all you care about her so much? Haha. I feel like everyone wants more Unohana.

Zameric
12th January 2012, 2:51 AM
Woo, I didn't expect some of the Vizards to come back as captains, but it's a great idea!

But that just makes me think, "What happened to the other Vizards?"
Although, Ant beat me to this topic.
I'm thinking on pretty much the same lines as he is.
What seems most likely for Love, is that he retired or was able to join Central 46.
Oh, or maybe he was recruited into Squad 0, but that seems unlikely.

Darn you Kubo, and your great cliffhangers! >.<
Damn you Kubo for leaving us hangin' for three weeks! D:<


Unohana is Arc's favorite character in Bleach, Grovyl. :p
Plus, she one of the most bad-*** captains, without ever really fighting.

Okay first off

Mobile internet ftw but it sucks to type with so excuse any grammar and spelling errors please

And second

Wtf three week break??????? Kubo you trollll!!!!!!!!!!!! Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

...

Anyway

On to the content

holy sh*t kensei and shinji are back. F*ck yeah theyre awesome. Lol

I do wonder however... They became captain again but there were only 3 spots open so what of the other former captains?? Guess kubo is just gonna keep trolling us... Lol he is certainly good at it.

Im soooooooo happy to see soul society stuff you dont even know... A major part of why i love bleach is the whole idea of the soul society and the way it is organized and how it is presented... So yay for that. :D

I guess with three weeks off this really will be a new arc starting then...????? Gosh i hope so. XD

i guess i should use this chance to catch up on the anime a bit since the manga is on break. Of course i will continue rereading the manga as well, im on volume 5 right now.

I might get to a computer tomorrow so i will read other posts people made then.

I like Pokemon (...)

Updated in my post, and PM'd Golde.

Here's hoping more Unohana in the future. That is all.
If the next arc focuses on the past, I think we'll definitely see more of her.


Seeing the Vizards back in place, you'd think Urahara and Yoruichi might return as well. Unless they're happy in the Living World, which, well, something Soul Society wouldn't allow. But then, that was back then before the Aizen stuff. Eh.
My thoughts might be something like:
Yamamoto - we are indebted to you for defeating Aizen, and owe you for banishing you before. If you would like, you can return to our G13 somewhere.
Urahara: Me~? But I'm just a humble shopkeeper.
Yamamoto: Alright. You shall be our Karakura town captain person thingy who will keep Ichigo up to date or something.

Unohana is Arc's favorite character in Bleach, Grovyl. :p
Plus, she one of the most bad-*** captains, without ever really fighting.
Plus, she's one of the "big three" under Yamamoto, and even Shunsui and Ukitake fear her. It's likely that she's the second strongest under him.

However, due to the weird stipulations of the internet here, I don't believe I can sign in to WLM, so, all you people I talk to there, if you need to contact me for any reason, please PM me. And please continue sending me the PMs for updates people Ant



Literally the thing that bugs me most about this entire arc is "Xcution". The name is weird, and it seems just...wrong in every context its used in. Bleh.

That aside, I thought it was a wonderful ending to this arc :P

Renji and Ichigo are always great together, hilarious. I liked the Shinsui/Ukitake scene however cliche. Sometimes cliche isn't bad -.-

And I liked Riruka. :( I'll miss her




Comments in Bold~


Looks like THIS was the final tie up. In all honesty, I really think that he could have squashed it so he could end it before 2012.

Eh, maybe just cause I liked the Fullbringers, but I was fine with the timing. Plus, if you guys think its so bad, you probably wouldn't want to rush it and make it even worse :P

OHMYGOD KENSEI YESSSSSSS

I KNOW GRAAHAAHAHA




Someone said that before.

t'was me




SOI FON! <3

YES! <3

Moving on...

No! SOI FON >D

Anyway, we have topics, manga/anime discussion, fanfics and...that's it right now.
So how about we all have a little fun with our beloved captains here, huh? >D

...now we aren't trapping them all with Yamamoto to see who dies from boredom first! I'm not THAT evil...yet.

Not really a plausible thing unless we could come up with a way for everybody to become balanced out. Though I do believe you and I have talked before about attempting something like this. Incidentally, I considered setting up a Bleach RP in the RP section, then I realized I would be too lazy to keep it up to date.

I'm pretty sure it was just a "use an X. It's cool" plus "execution sounds like something REALLY COOL" so XCution sounds even cooler.

Lol thanks for keeping it up there XD

Kubo finished an arc, lol. It's expected. I'd be willing to wait a lot longer, provided he actually like, turns Bleach around.

College started back up for me. It's going ok for now. Got some projects or whatever, lol.

I'm seriously considering continuing my story again for real this time, considering I actually seem to have a bit o' free time. I've already finished some manga (One Piece, namely) and might as well turn the time into something creative. Just don't get mad if it takes me a bit, I have a whole different group of people in the club since I've started and I don't have any of my notes from the intended future 'arcs', so I'll have to do it by memory. But yeah, I may resend PM's sometime requesting info.

I'm out for now >:P

IT SHALL NOT PASS!!!!

I know, I need my weekly manga fix. So I'm sad/bored that I have one less manga to read 4 if you count Blue Exorcist, that comes out once a month.

College has pretty much been the same, making new friends keeping in touch with old ones.

My younger bro bought a keyboard, and I've been teaching my self how to play Libera Me From Hell. It's a beeotch, but its all worth it.

Hello Club~.

Exams are finally over~. My hands are legally dead. I honestly expected one of them to grab my pencil and commit suicide (Or seppuku) during one of the exams.

I waited like 3 hours on Mangastream for Bleach to come out the first week of hiatus T_T.

And Kai isn't the only one who can use water or ice...There's Arc and me too.

Anyways, I was thinking we could do this tournament style. Everyone would suggest a matching, and the most popular matchings (With no repeated fighters, so everyone can participate) would start the tournament. Everyone would vote who would win and that person would move on and the other would be eliminated. The In-Character time between fights would be one week, so consider their injuries during the previous fights when you vote (And then there would be people like Arc who would be at full health each round..) It'd keep going with the winners matching up and everyone voting (And you coudn't vote for yourself or your opponent) until we came to a victor, with perhaps some wild cards thrown in near the end.

Cause, y'know, we need to throw something interesting in, and we need to do SOMETHING during Kubo's Hiatus.

Oh, and to give it life, perhaps some of us could write out some of the battles after the winner is decided for it.

Was that confusing?

Oh, and an impartial judge wouldn't hurt. I'd suggest Arc or Golde, who both have inherent advantages.

At some point MC and I talked about something like this. I suggested that, with a bit of help from, Eon (as he knows the system) and any other volunteers, we could, in a way, adapt the PASBL system to work for Bleach.

For those that don't know, it works like this: All Pokemon have a set amount of health and energy, which is the same for all Pokemon. Each attack uses a predetermined amount of energy and deals a predetermined amount of damage. If a Pokemon loses all its health or uses all its energy, it faints.

On energy: Pokemon can use unlimited amounts of its own type energy (Feraligatr can use unlimited Water energy). However, when it comes to off-type energy, the Pokemon has only a limited amount of said energy (Feraligatr can only use the equvalent of one Hyper Beam of Dragon energy). When this off-type energy is used, it is subtracted from both the off-type pool and general energy pool (Feraligatr uses a Dragon Pulse, it uses good Dragon energy and good energy overall).

How battles work: Battles include three people - two battlers and a referee - who do just what their titles imply. In each Round, a battler's Pokemon may use a maximum of two attacks (this includes dodging, blocking, etc.), however, each trainer gets one three move round per match (we'd probably up it a bit for our purposes). Orders and reffings happen in the fashion below:

Combatant 1 orders
Combatant 2 orders
Referee refs (Describing the actions of the round and at the end giving a summary on the energy and health of each battler).
Combatant 2 orders
Combatant 1 orders
Referee refs
Rinse and repeat.

There are situations in which the Pokemon battles are 1 vs 1, like ours would be. In those cases, the battlers PM their orders to the ref for the first round.

Adapting to Bleach: The main adaptation would be "How do we use Kido and the like?". I was basically thinking Kido would be like limited type energy. You get a fixed amount of Kido energy and once it's gone, it's gone. Zanpakuto special attacks and melee attacks would be the unlimited use type energy.


The only problems I find are location. Where would we do this battles. The ASB system is designed for a forum. If we decided to use it, we'd need a forum to do it on. I though someone mentioned something about someone in the club having forums, but I don't quite remember who said it or who it was.

The biggest problem I see right off the bat is that attack damage is subjective, whereas in the PASBL there are set damage amounts for each attack, even if they fall within a range. Also, do you realize how long it's been since I battled anyone in the PASBL? I can't ref; I never passed the test for that in the first place (granted it was because I was too wordy, but still).

The second problem is "how do we weight people against one another". Who has the faster shunpou? Whose attacks do more damage? Whose stamina is greater? How well does blocking work? Those sorts of things are issues we can't solve so simply.

Bake off?

How's everyone? Did School/College/University resume for erverybody?
School has been on for 3 weeks. I am officially over half way (62/169 school days) through Year 11. Can. Not. Wait.

I'm seriously considering continuing my story again for real this time, considering I actually seem to have a bit o' free time. I've already finished some manga (One Piece, namely) and might as well turn the time into something creative. Just don't get mad if it takes me a bit, I have a whole different group of people in the club since I've started and I don't have any of my notes from the intended future 'arcs', so I'll have to do it by memory.

Woo, that'd be awesome. I haven't eaten a fic in a while.

Exams are finally over~. My hands are legally dead. I honestly expected one of them to grab my pencil and commit suicide (Or seppuku) during one of the exams.
Ah, I'm glad I don't have a lot of writing-based exams :3


Anyways, I was thinking we could do this tournament style. Everyone would suggest a matching, and the most popular matchings (With no repeated fighters, so everyone can participate) would start the tournament. Everyone would vote who would win and that person would move on and the other would be eliminated.

It'd keep going with the winners matching up and everyone voting (And you coudn't vote for yourself or your opponent) until we came to a victor, with perhaps some wild cards thrown in near the end.
So a voting based system? That sounds cool, the only thing is that it's entirely reliant on club activity, and I figure that a lot of people wouldn't post just their view on the battle; it's something that would be an add-on in their original post. Plus, we'd have only really the active people posting and there'd probably a limit of how often a person could vote

It's a good idea, but I think, based on Eon's expansion, something simpler might suit us better, as opposed to a highly in-depth/technical system.

The second problem is "how do we weight people against one another". Who has the faster shunpou? Whose attacks do more damage? Whose stamina is greater? How well does blocking work? Those sorts of things are issues we can't solve so simply.
Subjective damage: While it would take some time and tinkering, I think we could create a general consensus to how much damage each of our attacks would do. Just remember: I never said it'd be easy. We could do it, though it would take a bit of time.

On refs: Honestly, we could seriously dumb down our reffing scale of acceptance. We don't have an Elsie or Muyo who have to make rather difficult criteria to what is an acceptable ref. I'm basically a bare minimum ref over there and all that's really needed is basic math skill (adding and subtracting) and the ability to write at least a semi-descriptive battle explanation.

Weighting people against one another: This would work on a cas by cas basis.

Shunpou/Dodging - Works much like Agility in the ASB. All battlers have the ability to use Agility. However, if the Pokemon doesn't naturally learn Agility, it has a 10% chance of failure on dodging. We simply tweak that into Shunpou. We look at battle data charts. The lower your mobility, the higher chance you have of failing to dodge.

Attack Damage: Back to BDCs again. We set an average offensive score. For this explanation we'll say it's 50. If your offensive score is 60, all your attacks would do base damage. Off of that, each score of 10 on the BDC is equal to 5%. For each 10 you're over 50, your attacks do 5% more damage; every 10 below 50, your attacks do 5% less damage.

Stamina: We'll treat it like we did the offensive. We set an average, again 50 for the explanation. Keeping in style of offensive, each 10 over/under 50 is 5%. The boosts are applied to both health and energy. The only problem being, "What happens when some with a huge health benefit fights someone with a huge health deficet?".

Blocking: This took a bit of thinking on my part, but I finally came up with a semi-decent idea. Blocking works in two different forms. Though keep in mind: those with higher defensive stats use slightly less energy on each block.

----- The first being like ASB Safeguard. It uses the same amount of energy everytime it's used. Our equivalent would be blocking melee attacks/low level Kido.

----- The second being like ASB Protect. The first time it blocks an attack, it only uses up energy equivalent to the attack it blocks. Each use after that uses up slightly more energy than the attack it blocking. It would be used mainly for blocking high level kido/zanpakuto attacks.


So yeah. There's my two cents on that stuff. Just remember: this was made with a little bit of thinking so it's far from foolproof.

A pretty good episode. :)
I like that the anime team is expanding on this arc.
I personally think this episode Trollkishima's abilities more, believable.
It was good to see some real progression with the effects of his abilities on the victims.

Plus, Chad got some action scenes! 8D
I noticed that he doesn't seem to use his Fullbring powers like the others.
He doesn't seem to give off that green light...

They also show Riruka's tsundere nature a lot better in the anime. xD


And Kai isn't the only one who can use water or ice...There's Arc and me too.
Well, I thought Arc's zan had a slight advantage over MC.
And I kind of forgot that you had an ice-type zanpakuto.
But now that I think about it, MC would have a slight advantage over you.
Since this is a fan club, I figured and captain and lower seated officer could fight on relative equal terms, if they both have bankai.
And, I'd also like to see some none-captains fighting for a change.


Anyways, I was thinking we could do this tournament style. Everyone would suggest a matching, and the most popular matchings (With no repeated fighters, so everyone can participate) would start the tournament.

Now, I'm just in the re-planning process here, so no immediate rush. I'll probably announce when I really begin again. But yeah, sometime soon. I'm kind of just matching characters again, because a lot of people who were set up to fight so-and-so aren't around anymore, so I'm rethinking everything (Ant doesn't get Tobi of course)

But here is more or less the format required. All pretty basic but whatever.




1. Name - (Include the full name, nicknames, anything I should know or you want included, etc)

2. Attitude - (Any habits, overall attitude, things that affect them negatively/positively, I'm sure I don't need to go into much detail. You guys have done this before I'm sure lol. Just try to be detailed)

3. Appearance - (Again, details please. Height/weight, hair length/color, skin color, and so on and so forth)

4. Backstory - (Anything of significance that could be used for drama/an entire arc lol. If its way too crazy I'll probably just ask about it, so don't censor yourself on my account)

5. Anything Else - (Anything else I can use to get to know your character better.)

Thanks, again, looking forward to PM's. And don't make me hunt you down >>

In other news: Kusari is slowly but surely beginning to write more fanfiction. Though it has been a bit more difficult due to using all those friggin' characters he created. He finds it hard to write out the perfect portrayal of how he wants these characters to be without them becoming too beige or looking like a carbon copy of a character that already exists in the club (read: The 13th captain is rather lazy, like Hayashi, yet is still drastically different in other ways and the writer is having trouble distinguishing between the two at times.)

I haven't gotten the chance to fill out that form thing, Golde. I'll get on it by the end of this week :3

Its cool. Again, all I'm doing now is jogging my memory. I have a long process when I write. Its hard for me to get out of a funk. I think I'm gonna reread my entire story in an attempt to reconnect with my characters. It's gonna be a bit before a chapter develops, but I'm working, in my own way.



Yes. Manga is next week. And it had better be ****ing worth it.


Wasn't it due this week? I could've sworn it's been 3 weeks already...


I just found out today that 3 of my high school friends are engaged. I feel like I've been dragging behind a bit in my social life :P I need to catch up. also my ex is a lesbian which is a whole 'nother story

My life has issues XD

I lost track of the 3 weeks... Umm it IS next week right? x.x

Umm yeah, no manga means I have almost nothing Bleach-related to talk about. That, and school has started, so umm yeah... =/ SORRY GUYS. orz

Umm I come here today to mention something I saw on Crunchyroll news:

"Pictures from the March issue of Saikyou Jump, on sale 2/4, reveal that the Rock Lee no Seishun Full Power Ninden anime that had been previously announced will be airing on TV Tokyo on Tuesdays at 6pm in Japan, Bleach's current time slot."

So umm... the anime, it might be ending or it might be moving or maybe just taking a break...? (Or maybe it'll be like, commercial-free with the Naruto spinoff thing taking up the time the commercials would have, or something...?)

I haven't been keeping up with the anime but by no means have I FORGOTTEN it, so umm... I hope it doesn't end. =/

Then again, it's been losing popularity so who is to say...

Only a few more days until the manga comes back! 8D

Kubo should make an omake for the anime, where Uryu is a detective. xD
Maybe he could throw in a Detective Conan reference.

Ichigo's Fullbring completion was cool, even more so because of the soul singers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ieR7gF2mdI&feature=related).
Number One is one of my favorite Bleach original sountracks. xD

And now Trollkishima's mind**** assult begins! :O
Stuff like this is always better in the anime, since they can make it more dramatic.
It was hard to watch the scene where Ichigo comes home. >.<

Lmao, need a shoulder boob to cry on? XD
Oh god, more mind****. >.<


I lost track of the 3 weeks... Umm it IS next week right? x.x
Yep. I hope it has a color spread of the new 13 captains, like the original one (http://media.animevice.com/uploads/0/4479/382770-bleach_captains.jpg).

I'm pretty sure the anime is not going to be dropped like that.
Either it's going to take a pause after the Fullbringer arc, or it's moving to a new slot.

minchan
7th February 2012, 4:45 AM
Which are you referring to, anime or manga?

Because manga isn't really by season, it's more by arc than anything else.

Anime is by season, usually around 13 episodes.

This coming ARC in the manga is supposed to be the last one, HOWEVER it has been said that it's supposed to be very long, spanning longer than the arrancar arc... Who's to say, it's hard to know exactly what will happen. But one thing, I think Kubo will be allowed, more or less, to continue for that long, should he want to... Even if Bleach falls a bit in popularity, it's STILL without a doubt a very popular series. So he'll be able to finish it more or less the way he plans to. So I'm sure we have a good few years left, if it's true that he plans a long arc for the final.

If you're referring to the anime, then honestly, I have absolutely no idea. I've gotten so far behind on the anime... XD (Ironically I've actually CAUGHT UP to another anime, Sket Dance... LOL Who wants to bet that when I go catch up with Bleach that I'll fall behind on Sket Dance or some other anime I'm watching? XD)

...

So... Umm... Just a few more days until new manga (finally) huh... THIS WAIT IS INSANE OMG IT'S KILLING ME. >.< LOL

Anime News Network confirms (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-02-01/tite-kubo-bleach-manga-to-enter-final-arc) what Min and Soroft have said, which we knew about since before the Fullbringer arc started.
While I'm a little saddened by the reminder, it feels proper that it will end with one long arc.
There's still plenty to look forward to with the series.
If Kubo is going to reveal even some of that, then I think this will be an amazing arc.


A great episode for Ichigo being an action hero. :p
But they censored Trollkishima's arm being hacked off! D:<
I think the only other time they've done that was when Chad first fought Yammy.
Bleach anime team, I am disappoint.

Ginjo, join the dark side on Trollkishima will buy you something nice. XD

The omake was awesome! xD
Even Trollkishima's powers can have drawbacks.

8th February 2012, 4:05 AM
I sure hope we get answers to the questions we all want answered...

Royal Guard (also will we learn more about Urahara's predecessor? Umm Hikifune or something?)
Other vizards' positions (did they go there, or somewhere else?)
Aizen, will he return?
Will the remaining living fullbringers ever reappear?

And personally, I kinda wish Tatsuki and the other school friends would have more of a role in the story... =/ Now that they know all the details of Ichigo's powers, maybe they'll be featured at least a bit more...?

Oh and of course, more details about Ichigo's mom...
ISSHIN'S PAST

And I've been wondering where the hell Jinta and Ururu came from for the longest time... =/

There's soooo many questions... Can one arc really answer them all...??

---

Does anyone have a concrete idea as to how long this will be...?

I mean, I've heard 30 more volumes, I've heard the same as the arrancar arc (roughly)...

But is there actual evidence...? I'm not quite sure...

Besides, the "arrancar arc" is kinda subjective... It could mean JUST the arc of the introduction of arrancars to the story, or it could mean the whole arrancar introduction all the way through the Aizen battle, or at least the espada fight in Fake Karakura...

I personally kinda hope it's comparable to the arrancar intro through Aizen battle length, just because I don't really want to see this end so soon, and also because there really are SO many questions left unanswered still.

I'm sure some answers (like the other vizards' positions) will probably come sooner than some others (like information on the Royal Guard, for example)...

MAN. LESS THAN A DAY (hopefully!) until the new chapter... But I've already speculated so much... XD LOL

I kinda hope it comes out a decent time before 11AM Eastern because my class starts then, and I'm in class from 11-6. =/ (And dinner right after, so it'd take quite a while to read it, should it come out, say, 11:30...)

Nonetheless I am looking VERY forward to the next chapter. I hope this final arc will be amazing, something to remember.

Man, I'm glad that I checked mangareader @ 10 o'clock at night.


THE THOUSAND YEAR BLOOD WAR!!!
Sounds very long and very interesting... Hopefully the arc is equally long and interesting.

"Them and Them alone!" Who is "them"? Azien? the Royal Guard? Hollows themselves? God? Only time and Kubo will tell. Thats a horrible line Rex

I like this Yuki kid, he's lazy and has some wit. *Golf clap*

Aaaand in comes Ichigo to save the day! Dah duh dah dah!

Good chapter intro chapter.

8th February 2012, 9:55 AM
>Randomly wake up at 3:30 am
>Decide to check the internet
>See that Rex has posted about new arc

Well then, I'd best get to reading.


Despite it coming in near the end, let's start with the title: The Thosand Year Blood War. Sounds interesting, to say the least. Let's hope this arc lasts 1000 years, as speculated. (For thos that don't already know, rumors are flying that this arc will be longer than ****ing Arrancars. And we know how long that was.)

Nice little emergency to bring us into the action. More Hollows than normal are appearing in Karakura and then disappearing from exisitence. Sounds like a peasent experience. Also, nice to see Akon. I like him.

Next up Shiro-san and Yuki: For a moment, I was fearing that these people were going to be the new protagonists. And then I got scared. Despite Ichigo's faults and stupidities, I still wouldn't be Bleach without him at the front.

Then comes the old Bleach standard scene of a silhoutted character standing atop a small, high up place. (Rukia on a telephone pole, Shinji on a telephone pole, this guy on the corner of a building)

.... and then Getsuga Tensho saved that guy.

Ending the chapter is a very suspicious shot of a man hiding around a corner watching Ichigo. He's totally not a villain.

8th February 2012, 11:04 AM
While Kusari is right that it wouldn't be Bleach, I still don't wanna see Yuki and Shiro get introduced and have their relationship shown, and then just DIE. That's kinda sad...

And yeah, suspicious people. Not really enough information that wasn't blatantly obvious to say much about the whole thing yet.

THE ONE THOUSAND YEAR HOLY WAR.
This sounds like it's going to be good!

The "Sutra Scale"? Google comes up with nothing, so I guess it's something new.

Okay, so mass Hollow-destructification.

Okay, so we know the problem with the Hollows has already gotten quite big over the past while. "Only minor adjustments were made to deal with the previous problems". This is going on a limb, but Urahara might have noticed this already, and planned something?

The barrier between the World of the Living and Soul Society being broken down... Digimon?

Mayuri's new headpiece. I don't like it. Will have to get used to it. But he says "Are them and them alone." My first thought were the Quincies, but being extinct, it means that something special has happened The Jager have become canon or possibly even something related to the Soul King. He did also say "The only ones capable..." though I feel that if it wasn't the Quincies, he would have said "The only ones CURRENTLY capable" or something.

Bald guy with brown/purple hair, blonde guy, masked(?) guy, a guy with piercings on his ear, a guy with quite straight hair, and another one (two? Ichigo might be hiding one).

Oh look, a new guy. Yuki Ryuunosuke. What a name.

Shino. That body shot would have looked nice if she wasn't wearing a standard uniform.
Okay, so they're going to Karakura, obviously they're going to meet and befriend Ichigo and become part of his NAKAMA~
Also, "someone acknowledged your strength" - which means that he either has a very strong latent power (likely) or that's a red herring and he's useless and someone pulled strings in the background.

I almost ready "sissy" as something else that can be used that ends with "ssy" that might be filtered out.

"Shino-chan doesn't even have a chest to stick out" - I feel like this is a joke on how Kubo either draws flat, or very well endowed women.

MAN ON A BUILDING. If he's like Rukia and Shinji before, then it means he's not actually a villain. And what he's breaking does seem to be like Hollow Bait or something.

Man, the mood changed very quickly. I don't know if that worked out as well for me. Though maybe I was just reading it too quickly. Music/colours might help.

"Her hand isn't moving. Neither is her body." Did Kubo just kill Shino? I don't know whether I'm glad or not lol. If he did, then it shows that he's not as... scared to kill characters anymore. But at the same time, she barely even did anything... Though it would give Yuki a TON of development.

SLASH!

Ichigo saving the day. Of course.

The suspicious shadow... Nothing really to say on him. I assume he's the person on the roof though, so my speculation stays here too.

Overall, I'm not sure what to say, really. We had the very early "OMG who?!", as well as many shadowy figures. Though it seems like Shino is killed off almost immediately, and we'll have to see how Yuki grows up. Maybe it's the fact that Ichigo came back in the first chapter? I dunno. Not got much of an idea of where this is going.

manga

Okay shoot me, I'm retarded, was Akon the third seat in his first appearance or am I just not remembering it right? XD

Well umm anyway...

Interesting new storyline thingy... Umm... I'm not really sure what can really even be said about Quincies since there's what, 2 of them? Uryu and his dad, um...

That is, unless there are MORE and they were in hiding or something...???

But yeah that IS what I thought too, when I noticed the hollow extermination part. XD

But wow I wonder if MAYBE the Quincies will actually tie back into the SS story...?? I sure as hell HOPE so if this is really one arc... I mean, I want to know so many things, and most of them happen to be about the SS. LOL

Also. Building, not phone pole? C-c-c-c-c-combo breaker!!! *shot* Sorry, had to. =P

ANYWAYYYYYYYYYYY

Honestly the new characters seem a bit dull so far... And the chapter was surprisingly (or not, knowing Kubo, lol) slow-ish paced...

But I guess that's kinda how Bleach is. Even re-reading (as I am, and I just finished volume 12) I noticed a single chapter is pretty slow, even way back then... So actually I guess I'm not so surprised after all. XD

I hope things pick up soon... But you know, I think I more enjoy reading the chapters in bulk, I kinda get lost over a week, and sort of forget the last chapter sometimes. XD Well that's kinda why I'm re-reading everything anyway... LOL

I guess the color pages are a really nice touch though. <3

And the arc title is extremely intriguing... I mean really, a whole freakin' war. With blood. For SO DAMN MANY YEARS. O.O

Now I'm worried, will the humans in the cast be dead (like, naturally, by age) by the time this all gets concluded? XD XD XD I kinda want to see them still be in high school (or at least just-graduated) when it's all over... LOL

Then again, the entire story up until now took place over just a few months... LOL And not to mention there were a TON of chapters that happened on - gasp - the SAME DAY. How long did it take Kubo to write all those same-day chapters??? XD XD XD

I guess it's hard to know for sure what the passage of time will be like for this arc...

I'm sort of thinking that maybe the 1000 years is a reference to something in the past that has been going on for maybe a good 999 years...? XD I dunno... I just don't see this travelling quite THAT far into the future, especially since it took so long for one freakin' day to pass... XD

(For thos that don't already know, rumors are flying that this arc will be longer than ****ing Arrancars. And we know how long that was.)

*shudder* I hope that's not true. We know what Kubo does to overly long arcs. He destroys them. Ah well. We'll see.

What happened to your orange font?


Then comes the old Bleach standard scene of a silhoutted character standing atop a small, high up place. (Rukia on a telephone pole, Shinji on a telephone pole, this guy on the corner of a building)

Wasn't that his new hairstyle, more like?

lol. That would be kinda nice though. I'd like to see the glass guy's power get animated

Soul King. Wasn't there another rumor saying that this new arc is going to somewhat focus on the Zero Division as well? Should be interesting.

Though it's also possible some Quincies survived and laid eggs and after some time, managed to grow in number again.


"Her hand isn't moving. Neither is her body." Did Kubo just kill Shino? I don't know whether I'm glad or not lol. If he did, then it shows that he's not as... scared to kill characters anymore.

Well, to be fair, Shino didn't quite have any improvement yet. My hunch is that she's dead, much like Hisagi's 2 friends from the Academy (remember the short chapter where they went Hollow hunting and Hisagi was kinda like the leader or something...? The chapter that featured Aizen and Gin? Yeah that. I see the two cases as... something very similar.

But of course. Inoue can bring people up from the dead, so why bother? No wonder Ichigo didn't really look stressed out or something. XD

Overall, not a very dramatic beginning chapter, but still good.

I see why you're thinking that way. The only ones capable of removing Hollows from existence itself are Quincies; the color spread had characters who are wearing Quincy outfits; The Holy War... Quincies use crosses. One thing that WILL be interesting if they do turn out to be Quincies would be which side Ishida and Ryuuken will go to. With more emphasis on Ishida.




ANYWAY. I still think Kubo should expand more on the old characters powers, and now that we've got another two new ones (or maybe one)... well, hmm. And this chapter sucked. No Unohana =(

On a somewhat related stuff. From the title... I just noticed. I don't know if anyone else knows Guilty Gear, but the Quincy dress concept is a bit similar to Ky Kiske. (http://www.cosplayhouse.com/images/D/Guilty_Gear_Ky_Kiske_shoes_ver_01-2-05.jpg) And he's in this one organization called "Sacred Order of the Holy Knights". I guess the word Holy kind of sparked my memory. XD

If it is Quincies, then there are DEFINITELY hidden ones. Which really isn't that surprising, I mean really, only two survivors of genocide?

And there's DEFINITELY no way that it means 1000 from this chapter onwards. It's probably related to the actual foundation of Soul Society, Yamamoto, and even the Soul King and the History of the Gotei 13.

How do you guys remember even that? o.o

Though most of the time, he doesn't really. :x

That's one of the key points in the upcoming arc, I think. Mainly how Ishida will react; which side he'll go to, if this is really going to be a war between the two. He did say something about him and Ichigo still being enemies after the whole save Rukia arc. Even though they've been through many stuff after that, I think he'll still say the same thing if he has to decide between the two races. After all, Mayuri DID experiment on his grandpa.

I get the feeling he, and probably Ryuken, would stand with the Soul Society. They have connections to Ichigo and Isshin respectively and, despite what they say, seem loyal to those connections.

IshiNemu is maybe canon?

I was under the impression that he made the Gotei 13 (or was it the school that he made?) and had placed himself as the Head-Captain. And 1000 years later, no one had been able to match him.

That's one of the key points in the upcoming arc, I think. Mainly how Ishida will react; which side he'll go to, if this is really going to be a war between the two.

Definitely, and I don't think I've actually touched upon that much:

My thoughts are that, like the whole Arrancar thing, we'll have 3 parties: Soul Society, the villain (Quincies/Aizen), and Ichigo's little group. If so, then Ishida will either side with Ichigo, or with the Quincies.

I think Ishida will side with the Quincies. Comparing it across to DBZ, Vegeta did side with the villains when he became Majin Vegeta. I would expect a similar face-heel-turn here. Plus, he's constantly mentioning how he is Ichigo's enemy, or something. The only reason why I think he would hesitate is with Orihime's opinion, but he might no longer have that crush on her.

I'm not sure about Ryuken though. He does dislike his powers, I think saying something vaguely like "these powers don't give you money". So he's hard to say.

I don't know who these two people are, but they're pretty boring -.- I thought he said another -ssy word too


THE OUTSIDERS!

Unless they went to the Planet of Kamino. My explanation and imagination for the Quincies looks like this, but you know.....set to Bleach. (http://youtu.be/wOLANti8UCY?t=27s)

Jeez, Rex. Too much Star Wars.




Is it bad that I don't know who Quinton Flynn is? XD

I had no idea who he was either.

[spoil]That's one of the key points in the upcoming arc, I think. Mainly how Ishida will react; which side he'll go to, if this is really going to be a war between the two. He did say something about him and Ichigo still being enemies after the whole save Rukia arc. Even though they've been through many stuff after that, I think he'll still say the same thing if he has to decide between the two races. After all, Mayuri DID experiment on his grandpa.

Rebreeding, no? XD

Now, I was in the Bleach discussion panel at Naka and someone said something they thought of I couldn't argue with. I want to know if you guys can prove this wrong for me, or remember if something contrary has been said.

Now, I was talking to someone about the direction of the current arc. Somehow we were talking about Ichigo's mom, and it was casually mentioned like, "maybe she's a Quincy!". I was about to argue but I realize I couldn't. It was kind of implied (at least I thought so) that Grand Fisher had killed his mom. But it seems that Ishin may have held more contempt for him then. Plus, it was established in the Fullbring arc (I know, it actually established something!) that Fullbrings have to have a parent that was attacked by a hollow. Which I feel like she couldn't get impregnated if she was dead. (Bleach Wiki says she was killed protecting Ichigo) Like..something about this doesn't add up. So unless I or Kubo messsed up then this seems like plot.

Which would explain how Isshin knows that Quincy guy...and why they're friends, even though they have the personality conflict...somehow. Anyway yeah. But is there any way to actually argue this? Cause this seems totally not true.

Commies ><

He was also Kon from Bleach. And Reno from FF7 Advent Children and Axel from Kingdom Hearts.

It was awesome. He made dirty comments as Kon. I also met Wendee Lee, who voices Tatsuki (I'm pretty sure), Yorouichi, and Ururu. Which was cute as heck. She started talking as Ururu and went "Ow! Ow! Jintei you bastard!"

From what we know, Grand Fisher DID kill Ichigo's mum. This we can say fairly certainly.

About the whole Fullbringer thing, I think Ichigo's an anomoly. I don't think he's a "natural" Fullbringer, so the case of "was his mum was attacked by a Hollow before he was born?" doesn't really matter. Sort of like how he's a special case for Vaizards.

I think if Ichigo's mum was a Quincy, a) that would make Ichigo a human, shinigami, Vaizard, and part Quincy (as well as having an inner-Hollow who is also a zanpakutou) all at once. And there's not much evidence to her being a Quincy, or to Ichigo being half-Quincy at all.

I don't quite get what your point is though.

Ooookay. XD
The colored texts came back o.o


I get the feeling he, and probably Ryuken, would stand with the Soul Society. They have connections to Ichigo and Isshin respectively and, despite what they say, seem loyal to those connections.

IshiNemu is maybe canon?

We'll see. XD I... somehow doubt it. :p


He does dubbing for Viz. He voiced Iruka in the Naruto dub (as well as Deidara for two or three episodes).

Ah, figures. I don't watch the dubs. XD


I was under the impression that he made the Gotei 13 (or was it the school that he made?) and had placed himself as the Head-Captain. And 1000 years later, no one had been able to match him.

He has? XD I thought it was just kinda like handed down to him or something.



I think Ishida will side with the Quincies. Comparing it across to DBZ, Vegeta did side with the villains when he became Majin Vegeta. I would expect a similar face-heel-turn here. Plus, he's constantly mentioning how he is Ichigo's enemy, or something. The only reason why I think he would hesitate is with Orihime's opinion, but he might no longer have that crush on her.

I'm not sure about Ryuken though. He does dislike his powers, I think saying something vaguely like "these powers don't give you money". So he's hard to say.

Interesting. I was thinking of the other way around. Hard to say with Ishida, but Ryuken will side with the Quincies. XD

Waaaaaaaaait, Ishida had a crush on Orihime? Waitwhenwhywhathow?


I'm including the 2-week christmas break.

*Facepalm* I mean red herring.
What do you mean?

But there was a chapter before the three week break. :p
Haha. Wasn't Snape kind of like a red herring?



I had no idea who he was either.

Mangafox is still there.





I think if Ichigo's mum was a Quincy, a) that would make Ichigo a human, shinigami, Vaizard, and part Quincy (as well as having an inner-Hollow who is also a zanpakutou) all at once. And there's not much evidence to her being a Quincy, or to Ichigo being half-Quincy at all.

We complained once about how Ichigo being a part of every spiritual being there is to be. XD Except a Quincy. IF that is true, oh God. He's EVERYTHING. x.x And he'll get Quincy powers this arc!

I don't quite get what your point is though.

Again, 'from what we know'. For all we know, if she was a Quincy, she could've been saved and left. Like, she assumes her powers will draw in hollows, Isshin will be better to protect the children, whatever. IDK. Just saying.

And again, you 'think'...while I could see it, is it ever solidly stated that Ichigo is an anomaly?

There wasn't any mention she could be a Quincy, but it could be one of those things. It would probably explain some stuff. Again, why Isshin and Uryu's dad have the relationship they do. It would make the Fullbring arc a bit less BS. I mean we didn't know that the Substitute Badge meant nothing until way later after it was introduced. It was just implied Afro was stupid.

And of course. He'd try to find some way to implement Quicy powers into his Shinigami powers. I mean, this is apparently going to be a really long arc-he's gonna need a new God-like power to train with.

My point was hey, can any of you for sure prove this wrong. Lol I'm not convinced yet :P It seems like something that could, but likely won't, happen.

So you're saying that when Grand Fisher happened, she didn't actually die, she "left"? That would mean that for however many years it was, Isshin has been lying to their 3 children that Masaki is dead when she wasn't. Plus, it would imply that Grand Fisher was going along with it (and that it was all planned) which, well, no.

Well we know that the origin for Ichigo's Vaizard powers are anomalous; he got his via the Urahara method. Plus there's all sorts of "his growth is tremendous!" At this point, it would be silly to think that almost ANYTHING of Ichigo is "normal". Plus, if he was a "normal Fullbringer" he would have found his powers earlier.

That's one possible option for explaining the link between Isshin and Ryuken, but really, it could be anything that Kubo wants it to be because he's left it VERY open-ended so far. And I have a feeling that Kubo isn't so much trying to salvage his last arc anymore.

As opposed to, idk, teaching him Kidou which actually makes more sense, than whatever convoluted mess would come from trying to give Ichigo Quincy powers?

If you're with that attitude, then you'll always say "yeah, but...". I don't think there's any way to actually say "100% without a doubt Masaki is/is not a Quincy." But we can get reasonably close enough to assume so with our current info.

This makes sense if you actuakly think about it (and inference a bit). So Aizen claims to have planned errything about Ichi's life. Now, let's say that after Isshin defected they didn't know he banged a Quincy (who the SS probably wasn't fond of at the time) to make some baby spiritual being chimeras. He realized that if SS were to ever find out about it, Masaki and the kids would be killed. Then, around the time Ichi was nine, he noticed people were getting close. To throw them off, he and Masaki made a deal with the man who has planned errything up to this point: Aizen. Aizen was just to have a Hollow attack Masaki. Having pull over Hueco Mundo, Aizen arranges for Grand Fisher to attack and "kill" Masaki, during which time she would leave, making the trail go cold. Now Grand Fisher wouldn't do this for free, so Aizen promised him Arrancar-ship once he obtained the Hogyoku. The Hollow did as he was told, except "attacking" when Masaki was alone, instead Ichi was caught in the crossfire. Now, when Isshin learned that Ichigo could've been killed too, he formed a grudge against Grand Fisher and Aizen. When Fisher showed up as an Arrancar, Isshin satiated his lust for the Hollow's blood. Factor in all the times Isshin attacked Ichi (y'know, the kicks to the face at breakfast) as Isshin preparing for his son to gain shinigami powers so he could eventually be taught the Mugetsu and kill Aizen (though we know this didn't happen).

And no, I was saying that maybe Grand Fisher thought he killed her, then was chased off by Isshin. Or Grand Fisher said that to irk Ichigo. Isshin could've came in, chased off the hollow, been in too much of a hurry to save his wife, saved her, then she thought her kids would be safer if she was gone. What's Isshin gonna say? "Hey, kids, turns out your mother was attacked by some demonic, ethereal creature. She was wounded and decided to leave to protect you guys." If it happened that's obviously the worst route. Yay, lying! I mean, Isshin didn't mention that he was a Soul Reaper. Even when Ichigo became one.

Alright, breaking it down:
"People had to get close to Isshin and co." It's why they would have planned the whole thing in the first place. Absolutely no evidence for this from the start, but let's keep going.
What would Aizen got from any of this in the first place? We know that Aizen was supposedly already "watching" Ichigo from his birth. Plus, I'm sure that if Isshin wanted something to cover a death, he would go to Urahara.
I don't think Grand Fisher would go for a "sure I'll do this to become an Arrancar!" Plus, we find out at the end of the chapter that he has his mask broken by another Hollow, not via a Hougyoku (hence why his form was incomplete, or something).

Soyeah. If I wasn't trying to disprove the theory, I would probably try tweaking it to make it more likely.

*Shrug* Well you are defending the theory so...

I don't quite understand what you're trying to explain there. She was wounded but decided to leave anyway?
And there's a difference between lying by ommission ("what, you didn't ask") and outright lying ("woops, turns out your mum ISN'T dead"). Plus, at least in the 1.5 year gap, Isshin would have explained to Ichigo.

I mean, actually I only follow Bleach Naruto and Bakuman all of which are in SJ Alpha which I do have a subscription to but waiting 2 weeks is really umm UGHHHHHHHHHHH

I mean really, if mangastream, one of the sites that actually takes down manga, stops doing Jump series... Well all others probably will follow. >.< By force if Viz has to...

I mean really WTF... I do support the series I follow 100%... I mean sure I know many people don't but I think Viz really just needs to get off their lazy asses and release as fast as Mangastream and other scanlations do, within a week.

I have a SJ Alpha subscription, and I have bought or am buying all the Bleach volumes in digital from vizmanga, and I have many print volumes too. I buy all Bakuman print volumes, and I have many Naruto print volumes... I've been subscribed for YEARS to the North American SJ magazine... Just to support them.

Really, the least they could do is be a little faster. =/

IF A BUNCH OF RANDOM PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET CAN DO IT FOR FREE IN UNDER A WEEK AND SOMETIMES IN JUST ONE OR TWO DAYS THEN THE OFFICIAL PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO AS WELL. It's probably EASIER for them too, there's probably little to no cleaning required since they most likely have access to the original pages anyway. =/

Just release SJ Alpha in less than a week after publication in Japan, or one week later at MAXIMUM, and I'll stop complaining.

I'm just pissed that they're going after the people who do it faster than them BEFORE they even try to do it just as fast themselves. They have PAID employees and better resources.

This makes me soooo mad. UGHHH

Also, it seems most other sites for reading manga do rip off mangastream's scanlations... Therefore those sites will be stuck too. >.<

Just go check mangafox or mangareader, they use mangastream's scanlations! And since mangastream isn't doing those anymore... Well, they won't end up on other sites either. =/

In other news, SJ Alpha will delete chapters within a year after release... And there's no download button...

Wait, how did you connect Aizen to Ginjou through the Fullbring arc and "Ichigo doesn't know something about his father"?

Well, I think if the arc has a bit of focus on Isshin, some must go to Masaki and Ryuken. I predict a love triangle!

That's what I'm waiting for, now.

Tbh, this theory reminds me intensely of plot twists like "The Truth About Itachi" in Naruto; what I like to call a shark jump. No actual clues towards anything, no concrete evidence, just a massive logic jump that fills in all the circumstancial blanks and yet fits for absolutely no other reason than because there's nothing to contradict it.

It's never directly stated that Grand Fisher killed Masaki (Ichigo's mom); he says he can't remember if he did or not, and Ichigo just wakes up to find her dead body lying on top of him, so he doesn't know either. However, if it was a Hollow, wouldn't Grand Fisher have eaten her? It's suspicious, if you think about it rationally.

On the surface, it appears that Isshin almost certainly believes that Masaki was killed by Grand Fisher, as does Urahara (refer to Chapter 188, where Isshin kills Grand Fisher with one blow), since Urahara refers to Isshin's killing of Grand Fisher as "revenge", before they immediately get onto the topic of Isshin's greatest regret (which is -obviously- letting Masaki die). However, Isshin also says that he never hated Grand Fisher, which strikes me as odd. Forgiving person or not, there's no way in hell he's not even the slightest bit angry with his wife's supposed murderer. So why wouldn't he be mad at Grand Fisher? Answer: because Grand Fisher wasn't the real culprit. Maybe he was somehow involved, maybe Isshin was busy dealing with him while Masaki was killed; we don't actually know.

Now, as for Aizen being somehow involved, I really think we need to call bs on that. In case you forgot, Isshin and Aizen were enemies. There's no way there were working together; even if they were there's no way Isshin would've backstabbed him. Like Ichigo, he protects the people precious to him no matter what else happens. He wouldn't take the risk in facing an enemy he would be certain that he couldn't defeat (he definitely knew about the Hogyoku from Urahara beforehand), because unlike Ichigo, he's actually somewhat rational when he's not acting like an insane man going through a midlife crisis. Furthermore, if Aizen was involved, he would've known Masaki's true nature. This does not happen, else he would've revealed it to Ichigo. Isshin intervened to cut him off after he'd already said "you are the offspring of a human and a-" and we all know that the last bit is "shinigami". Aizen just says human; not Quincy, not anything else. If Masaki's true nature was being hidden, it was definitely not by Aizen, but rather from him, if he was even a factor.

Currently, there are no conclusions that you can draw in either direction. All evidence -both for and against- the theory and its facets is circumstancial. If this is plot, it'll be a masterfully produced shark jump. If the theory turns out to be false, there are far too many plotholes in Bleach that Kubo never took advantage of, and he is utterly and completely useless as a plot writer.

Anything else?

A "shark jump"? So a bit like an "arsepull"?

However, if it was a Hollow, wouldn't Grand Fisher have eaten her? It's suspicious, if you think about it rationally.
In the manga, Grand Fisher prefers to eat children, and Masaki's mother got in the way. And he's shown to be of a high intelligence; I figure that he wanted to get Ichigo, Masaki got in the way and he killed her by accident, but didn't want to eat her because he prefers children. Why he didn't go after Ichigo then I, don't know if an explanation has been provided and I am far too lazy to search for the chapters myself <.<

On the surface, it appears that Isshin almost certainly believes that Masaki was killed by Grand Fisher, as does Urahara (refer to Chapter 188, where Isshin kills Grand Fisher with one blow), since Urahara refers to Isshin's killing of Grand Fisher as "revenge", before they immediately get onto the topic of Isshin's greatest regret (which is -obviously- letting Masaki die).
You say "which is obviously letting Masaki die", but isn't the whole basis of this looking at really small technicalities and details that could fit in if you look at things with one eye closed?

This does not happen, else he would've revealed it to Ichigo. Isshin intervened to cut him off after he'd already said "you are the offspring of a human and a-" and we all know that the last bit is "shinigami". Aizen just says human; not Quincy, not anything else. If Masaki's true nature was being hidden, it was definitely not by Aizen, but rather from him, if he was even a factor.
That line is a bit of a strange one, because the mistake could be in either the previous chapter "you are a shinigami and a-" or the chapter after it "you are a human and a-".

She has a point though, one thing that would definitely stop me from reading scanlations is if the official ones came out at a speed either better than or equal to the scanlations. Ah well, I guess. Gonna try and find another source...
If they were really smart, they'd provide one or two weeks worth of translated chapters available online. But not leave an archive, so people would go buy them. That would be the best way to make fan scanlations useless.


Well, I think if the arc has a bit of focus on Isshin, some must go to Masaki and Ryuken. I predict a love triangle!
Oh please no... >.<

A "shark jump"? So a bit like an "arsepull"?

Kind of. A bit less douchy though. An arsepull would be more like Madara isn't Madara rather than "The Truth About Itachi". The former came completely out of nowhere with absolutely no information to back it up. It simply was. The only reason I don't classify that as an arsepull is because it was flawlessly executed and added a new subplot to an already complex situation. The latter is a shark jump because there were no clues, but when you look back, everything fit with the pre-existing storyline.


Idk why you're spoilering half this stuff, but eh.

And he's shown to be of a high intelligence; I figure that he wanted to get Ichigo, Masaki got in the way and he killed her by accident, but didn't want to eat her because he prefers children. Why he didn't go after Ichigo then I, don't know if an explanation has been provided and I am far too lazy to search for the chapters myself <.<

There's some confusion on that since in the Anime it's stated that he prefers women. That's why I left it as is. Also, if he's of a high intelligence, he should've eaten Masaki. More souls means more power, and more power means greater ease with finding new souls and a greater ability to avoid/defeat Shinigami who may be after him. I don't see how that could be construde as illogical, unless there were extenuating circumstances involved that forced him to leave without consuming her soul.


You say "which is obviously letting Masaki die", but isn't the whole basis of this looking at really small technicalities and details that could fit in if you look at things with one eye closed?

Except that Isshin literally says that his greatest regret was letting Masaki die two panels later. Did you look at the chapter or not?


That line is a bit of a strange one, because the mistake could be in either the previous chapter "you are a shinigami and a-" or the chapter after it "you are a human and a-".

Looking at the second chapter, it's almost inconcievable that the same mistake could be made three times on the same page. Ichigo repeats the line at least three times. It's the latter. Not to mention that he says "the answer appeared right in front of my eyes" and Isshin shows up. Before you try to rebutt this, think it over first, because there's really nothing to rebutt.

The only problem is that nothing really happened. Plus you guys already commented on everything.

It's not like he was so weak that he NEEDED to eat. I'm sure that if he's strong enough to play games like that, then when it fails he can just go away and pick another victim.

Man, I love being one of the younger members :p

Okay, what is the matter with Viz Media and Mangastream again? XD
Viz is stopping Mangastream from scanlating SJ manga, because it's illegal.


Didn't Ginjou say there's something Ichigo doesn't know about his father? Or was it Urahara? XD And... idk how it related to Aizen. XD I guess it came from a theory that said Ginjou and Aizen are somehow related.

It was about Isshin, not Urahara.


Eh, that's what Mangastream was doing, basically. >.>
Yeah, and Zam is saying that's what Viz should do.

EDIT: Manga is out! Mangareader and Mangafox both uploaded the chapter from Mangazone.net

Well, it's nice that he showed what the Vaizards are doing. I assume that they have at least SOME connection with Urahara.

Woah, what IS that? After seeing the beginning of the filler, maybe a naturally occuring Senkaimon? And she said it smells like Shinigami... which means that it either IS shinigami, or our new villains are somehow linked to Shinigami. There's also the possibility that they were shinigami who were exiled long before the Vaizards, and are possibly trying to recruit them?

For a moment, the cover page made me think "there's no way Rukia looks like THAT... does she?"

It's nice to see that it's not just Ichigo that's fighting Hollows. Though why they all needed to come together though...

And she's alive. Damnit.

Okay, so people in Rukongai are vanishing. Reminds me of when Aizen was experimenting. If it IS the Quincies, then it means that they're powers have grown to affect normal souls, too.

Woah, Ivan Azgiaro. Out of nowhere, too. So he's powerful enough that no one spiritually sensed him, and quick/quiet enough that no one saw him until that point. So he has a small mask that covers his left eye which has at least 3 holes, and a mark/tattoo thing above his right eye. Looking back at the previous chapter, he is most likely the person in the middle, I think. (http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/480/5)
Googling "Azgario" gets me nothing. Neither does Azgalio/Azgarioh/Azgaryo. Though "Azgalor" from WoW does show up...
Ivan as a name is of slavic-origins, so the focus will probably be of Russia (like Arrancars/Hollows were Mexican/Spanish, and I think the Bounts and Quincies were German).

So far, not so bad. Though his pace is still fairly slow, we ARE getting info.

I like how killing hollows are so easy to them that they can have somewhat of a petty argument while doing so.

Aww look, Shino cares for Ryunosuke :3. And while she yells at him, everyone just keeps chugging along.

Ivan Azgiaro. Broham looks like an arrancar, but as ILP pointed out; Ivan you don't meet much people of hispanic descent with the name Ivan.

My guess that he has a "proposition" for Ichigo and crew.

An ok chapter. Nothing really stands out besides the ending.

Ivan Azgario. What a curious specimen. The mask over his eye does indeed look Arrancar in origin. I personally think that he is, in fact, an Arrancar. It seems as if everyone is concerned about the name not being Spanish, though. Doesn't nessicarily mean he's not an Arrancar.

Let us look at what ILP said about the surname "Azgario". He finds nothing about the name itself/alternate spellings/alternate pronounciation. Compare that to past Arrancar names: Nnoitora Jiruga, Aaronierro Arrururre (probably not spelled right) or Nelliel Tu Odelshwank. Can't say any of those are normal names. Looking at other Arrancars, we see some rather normal names: Tia Halibel, Gantanbainne Mosqueda, Ulquiorra Schiffer/Cifer(depending on your choice of following Japanese or English, wither way both are actual names/words. I know a guy with the surname of Schiffer and "Cifer" is sometimes used as an alternate spelling of "Cipher"). And probably the biggest of all, Zommari Leroux, a name of blatantly French origin.

All of that is seemingly related to Kubo's naming scheme for the Hollows: architects/furniture designers. As an example, we'll look at Grimmjow. Kubo has admitted that Grimmjow's name came from architect, Nicolas Grimshaw. Grimmjow's given name is simply a corruption of Nicolas' surname. This is, of course, the most well known (though Ulqui is said to have similar inspiration for his surname).

Looking at it all together, Ivan doesn't seem all that outlandish for an Arrancar and allows for that possibility to still be a viable avenue for this new threat.


Oh boy. Rambling.

Well, if I'm not mistaken, the character in the fourth box are "death" and "person" just used together.

Let us look at what ILP said about the surname "Azgario". He finds nothing about the name itself/alternate spellings/alternate pronounciation. Compare that to past Arrancar names: Nnoitora Jiruga, Aaronierro Arrururre (probably not spelled right) or Nelliel Tu Odelshwank. Can't say any of those are normal names.

Kubo has admitted that Grimmjow's name came from architect, Nicolas Grimshaw. Grimmjow's given name is simply a corruption of Nicolas' surname. This is, of course, the most well known (though Ulqui is said to have similar inspiration for his surname).
I'm rubbing off on you? 8D

Ulquiorra's inspiration is Patricia Urquiola (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patricia_Urquiola). And while I can't find the actual source myself, Wikipedia says that:
"According to Tite Kubo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tite_Kubo), many of the Arrancars are named after real life architects and designers." With its source being: "Shonen Jump (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shonen_Jump_%28magazine%29). Volume 6, Issue 6. June 2008. Viz Media (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viz_Media). 12."

Though if Ivan is an Arrancar, then it means that either a few group are collaborating with each other (which doesn't seem likely; Hollows and Quincies should hate each other even more than Shinigami and Hollows), or that we have multiple villainous groups.

It's a nice attempt at a joke, but Shino's expression was genuinely sad, wasn't it? lol

Epic page is epic. (http://www.mangafox.com/manga/bleach/v53/c481/10.html) Too bad they didn't actually show the actual battle. Would've been nice to see Inoue or Chad in action. Ah well.

I still don't want to sort of throw the Quincy out yet. It doesn't really look like the generic Arrancar outfit. Though yeah, everyone had a change of outfit over the past 17 months anyway >.> And what Mayuri said last chapter.

I think this is going to be another cross of shinigami-Quincy-Arrancar triangle... We might even see Halibel again.

I figured out as much. I'm not that thick, thank you =] I'm curious what the writing means though.


Green on green, whoa. But yeah, you have a point.

I had a crackpot theory, but I don't think it would work out.

I know, my eyes bled. XD

Post it, then see if ILPy/Eon/kusa support or reject it, and see how they'll either completely decimate or add up to your theory XD

Him. The two shinigami... Shino is a girl and the other is a guy, right?

Oh yeah. What is the stuff that talked to Hiyori? Seemingly from her senses, it's a shinigami. Hmm.
Yes.

We might even see Halibel again.

Remember now, the uniforms the Arrancar wore was set in place by Aizen. Now that he's gone they could've just decided to what they wear on the their own.

There has been speculation surrounding things in Hueco. Namely the return of Grimmjow, Nel and Halibel and the mysterious bodies in Sizzle's lab. Kubo himself has commented on the Grimmjow and mysterious bodies, saying something about them possibly playing a role in the new arc.


Dark skin is best skin! waitwhat

And that's why we love Halibel.


Also, I find it odd that a totally non-serious, totally stupid fan theory I created out of sheer boardness inspired an ILP-Eon mini-debate fore the past week.

Threw away the color codes so I can read it easier

Yup, but the thing is that there never really was a strict rule to the dress; each Arrancar has his own personalized dress anyway (or at least mostly I think). idk. XD Maybe I just want to link the Quincies in there somewhere. Because that dress is most similar to theirs.

Sizzle. XD But yeah, if this is the Arrancar return saga or something like that, I expect to see those three again. Maybe the tides have somewhat turned and now they'll be working with the shinigami against the Quincies fanfictions coming to be manga-ized.

Ok then. But be forewarned, it has no real base at all and less than 30 seconds after I thought it up, I shot it down.


Maybe it's not just the Quincies, like what everyone thinks it is. What if its some sort of "alliance" between Shinigami, Quincy and Arrancar/hollows. And that their agenda was to "unite" everyone or the betterment for all or something.

...Thats as far as I got before I thought the reasons/questions why it wouldn't work.


So, yeah. Have at it.

So, while looking through the Bleach manga discussion thread, I found this post:

I doubt Ichigo would have any trouble either, but I think Ivan is there to make a deal with him, since Hollows disappearing is a danger to their kind too. Prefect opportunity to reintroduce Nel and the others.
If you think about it, the whole thing makes a lot of sense. We know that both Hollows and Wholes are both disappearing, which poses a threat to both Hueco Mundo's residents and the Soul Society. Ivan and whoever he's working for notice that both races are being effected and are like "Well this looks bad". I get the feeling that they (the Arrancars) know who's behind the disappearances and go with the "Enemy of my enemy is my friend" and reach out to SS for a temporary ceasefire to finish this threat off.

If that is viable at all, it opens up multiple possibilities for the future. It gives a way for Hali, Grimmy and Nel to reappear and the opportunity to go back to look at the mysterious bodies in Sizzle's lab (it was in Hueco remember).

And I know what you're thinking "If they want the help of SS, why go to Ichigo?" And my answer is "Many reasons my friend". Halibel obviously knows of Ichigo's victory, as she went back to Hueco after the final battle and had to pass all of those gloriously victorious shinigami. Once safely back, she could've easily found Nel and Grimmy (as they would most likely be drawn to the surge of spirit energy coming from the former Espada) and told them of what had happened.

From there, the timeskip happens. Over that time, Arrancars like Ivan come along and join Halibel's/Grimmjow's/whoever's group. When Hollows start disappearing from existence, they find out who's doing it and that it is happening to SS too. Under the "Enemy of my enemy" philosophy, they seek out a way to get allies. Knowing that they'll have no chance of just walking into SS to ask for help, they turn to someone SS owes a lot to: Ichigo Kurosaki, aka The Kid Who Stopped Aizen aka The Kid Who Found And Killed Ginjou Kugo. The Hollows figure that if they can convince Ichigo to help them, he'll convince SS for them, as SS always seems to follow Ichigo into battle. This part of the theory also gives a bit of chance to Hali/Grimmy/Nel having some high up pull in Hueco, as the latter two know him first hand and the former knows that he beat Aizen and all would know to turn to him.

Or this could be another idiotic theory. Who knows.

I have a few issues with comments about your theory there buddy...
First, which I'm sad to say, Grimmjow is actually dead.
Ok, so after reading the Bleach wiki again, it seems that Grimmjow is alive.
I could have sworn that I once read that Kubo apologized in an interview, for not drawing Grimmy's death.

I personally think that Mayuri probably already snatched up those bodies in Szayel's lab.

I think it's a little more simple...remaining Arrancar would go to Ichigo for help, because he's a relatively neutral force.

Your "few issues" aren't even issues at all. XD The first one is your personal opinion, and even if Mayuri has, there's still a way for them to come back in the future.

The second one... pretty much agrees with Kusari's theory. Er. So yeah.

Don't know if you guys noticed... But Mangafox doesn't host Bleach anymore. Ehhhhhhh. Still..

So we're wrong. He's a Quincy. Or maybe a new Arrancar-Quincy hybrid. But he seemed angry when Ichigo called him an Arrancar.

I didn't think Ishida and co. would be THAT calm though. After they finish eating the bread? XD

Yumichika... got a new look.

Oooooh. New appearances! Yay!
My first thought immediately went to "Squad 0", but Yamamoto would have met someone from there, right? Like Kirio Hikifune. And the guy said they're meeting for the first time.

A nice, full body shot to show off his uniform.

I like how Ishida, the Quincy, is the one to ask if he's an Arrancar. And they're so casual about him too XD

I'm guessing Ichigo is just taking him out of Karakura in case they need to fight.

He seemed annoyed when he mentioned Arrancar. So I'm guessing the Hollow/Quincy thing is still there with these guys.

Quincy. Confirmed.

The disappearing village and the footprints just make it look like the Quincies are attacking the spirits/wholes/pluses/whatever they're actually called. Not really much else I think can be read into that.

My first thought was Kidou Corps XD
It's a very... strange thing that they're doing, just going up to them and declaring war. But the seven of them are probably Captain level.

Not really much else to say, I guess?


And that's why we love Halibel.
And Yoruichi I meant the Dark-Type Skin on SPPF <.<

Officially Jossed. Though the second part might be plausible, but unlikely considering his reaction on hearing that species' name.

22nd February 2012, 10:40 PM
So, the "Ivan is an Arrancar ambassador" part of my theory is null now. Though I do hold a bit of hope for Hali/Grimmy/Nel joining up with the SS to stop the common threat, however unlikely it may be.

People disappear, Yumichika has a new hairstyle. Not much going on in Rukongai other than that.

Mystery Quincies declare war to Numero Uno himself. Pretty ballsy if you ask me, considering that the guy they just snuck up on willingly sacrificed his arm to deal a metric shitton of damage.

I keel wanting to come back to Ivan though. He's still a mystery inside of a paradox all wrapped up in a suave enigma. Despite the apparent anger he expresses at being mistaken for an Arrancar, he still has that bone-like thing over his eye.

Then there's his abilities. We've seen Quincies use the bow and arrow, Seele and Ginto (which, according to the wiki, is their equivalent of kido) for offensive purposes. Ivan didn't use any of these. He manifested some giant curved thing with giant spikes. I mean, it could be a bow, but what Quincy in their right mind would use a bow that was that big. It'd be like (using an example from the story itself) a Shinigami swinging a sword the size of a skyscraper.

Though, as I've been theorizing a lot lately, I'll throw another one out there: the situation with their weapons is a zanpakuto-ish type of majigger, in that, this specific sect of Quincy has increased to the level of power that they can create a new type of weapon from their bow. (ex. Ivan can turn his bow into that giant thing he used this chapter) Funny this is, this theory, if its true (which it probably isn't), is vaguely similar to the Veringnunninguning-thing from Eon's fic (note: cba to look up the actual spelling at this point in time).

Huh. I don't even remember why I did that.

Why is that, though? I mean, why would he be annoyed if he was mistakenly thought as an Arrancar when he's actually a Quincy? XD
It could be the fact that they followed Aizen, a shinigami, who Quincies hate. There's also the fact that Quincies and Hollow are also enemies (they destroy their existence), so being associated with them might make him angry.

All I can say about "me being Kubo" is that if Kubo actually comes up with half-wolf Shinigami in addition to everything else, I'm going to laugh before becoming extremly pissed-off. Seriously Kubo, get your own damn ideas. I've called about a hundred of your plot twists and it's getting old.

As for Ivan Whateverhisnameis, he's definitely a Quincy of some kind. There are bow types that are bigger than the user irl, you know. The ballista, the siege crossbow, and the English longbow being perfect examples. I'm not surprised, tbh. From the very moment Kurotsuchi singled out a single group capable of destroying souls, I knew that it had to be Quincy. Also, if you look at the uniforms of the group challenging Yamamoto, they're distinctly similar to Quincy uniforms. in the cut and style. The only strange things are the sashes and the masks. Perhaps some sort of hybrid.

Not much else to say. I'm hoping for something actually worth reading this time around.

Anyway I just hope they don't. I really hope they don't.

Even if it's somewhat losing popularity, it's still one of the most well known manga out there right now, and by no means is it totally unpopular... There ARE many people who still do follow it faithfully... I just can't imagine its anime counterpart ending prematurely... This doesn't sit right with me, you know!!

And though Eon did say that their dress are distinctly similar to a Quincy's, well... An Arrancar's uniform IS kind of similar to a Quincy's as well. That's really too generic. idk. XD

Even if it's somewhat losing popularity, it's still one of the most well known manga out there right now, and by no means is it totally unpopular... There ARE many people who still do follow it faithfully... I just can't imagine its anime counterpart ending prematurely... This doesn't sit right with me, you know!!
While its gigantic drop in popularity probably contributed somewhat to the anime's ending, it might not be the only reason.
Now, I don't watch the anime myself, but as far as I know, they're already up to the Fullbringer arc, yes? If that's the case, then another big contributing factor could be the increasingly small gap between the manga and the anime. Each chapter of Bleach has enough content for about 10 minutes of animation, and since both are weekly, the anime is bound to catch up (even more so with Bleach's pacing). With the current manga arc possibly being the last one in the series, the anime directors probably saw little reason to prolong the anime any longer.
In short, the anime is moving too quickly/the manga is moving too slowly.

Quincies are back in the story now? I thought Mayuri killed all of them. (Except Ishida and his dad...)


Ohyeah. I saw something interesting on Facebook. Though we need Jin to actually translate what the Chinese writing means. XD Can min read Chinese?

Waaaait, how do you know these guys are Quincys? Apart from speculation


Their clothing style (http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/482/16) is really similar to Uryuu's. (http://www.gatto999.it/images/stories/Anime%20Manga%20Cartoon/Bleach%20-%20Ishida%20-%20Quincy.jpg)



I don't care that you added a 2, I will forever see this as you calling Eon a kitty and huggling him.

It took me a half second to realized that min wasn't talking to Eon.

JIN YOU'RE BACK! =D wants to write *hugglesquishes* but that would be awkward*

Are you reading the manga again or just dropping by?


In short, the anime is moving too quickly/the manga is moving too slowly

Quincies are back in the story now? I thought Mayuri killed all of them. (Except Ishida and his dad...)

Then it could also mean they're stopping the anime for a fair amount of time before continuing again, maybe after halfway of the arc. That is, if they're going to continue it at all. I can imagine the animators getting tired of thinking up new fillers. XD They've had one arc -somewhat- related to Quincys (Bounts?) and 3 arcs related to shinigami (one part from the noble side, one part from the zanpakto,one part from the shinigami themselves). Making another filler regarding Quincy would give them a risk being jossed (I learned a new term from ILPy >.>), making another one about the shinigami would be... idk, they ran out of ideas? XD Meh, idk. Not that I watch the anime anyway :p

Unless they start animating Unohana going bankai sometime else

Yeah, apparently they bred survived, I guess? Or at least some of them.

I never noticed the fourth one was regarding Detective Conan. XD
Is shinigami the word that points to Conan? Probably because he's the one who solves dead people's cases. Or something. XD

"Really similar" or "distinctly similar"? I mean... Idk, at a first glance, I couldn't really see the similarities. Maybe the lower leg garment does a bit resemble the Quincys, but if Kubo wanted to focus on them being the Quincys, I think he'd give a few obvious giveaways like pentacles somewhere. He seemed to be focusing more on the... black mask and also the black line crossing over their shoulder.

Just wait though. Kubo will probably show that they're Quincys in the next chapter, as he did with Ivan-Arrancar-Quincy. XD

Oh also, can Quincys freely come into and go out freely from Soul Society? Wasn't it only spirits that can come into Soul Society? How did Ichigo & co. went into SS for the first time again? XD

It was never directly stated that this was the case. Kurotsuchi stated that Ishida's grandfather was simply "the last one I got", meaning that there could have, and probably would have been more out there. And those are just the ones that were under Shinigami surveilance, it's possible that there could have been others that the Soul Society didn't know about. So technically, no, there could be more. We just don't know one way or the other.

Really Jin, it sounds like you're hoping Kubo's just going to fail even more. That's a slightly sadistic source of amusement right there.

26th February 2012, 11:36 AM
XD You say that as if Kubo lurks around this forum and steals our ideas.
He should.

I don't really know. I mean, if Kubo really wants to show them as Quincies, I think he'd show some obvious signs that they are, like the Quincy pentacle Ivan/Ishida has or at least show their faces instead of... black... mask? And though Eon did say that their dress are distinctly similar to a Quincy's, well... An Arrancar's uniform IS kind of similar to a Quincy's as well. That's really too generic. idk. XD
But then it would be obvious to the characters that they were Quincies too. At the moment, there just isn't much (if any) evidence to show that we should think they are a separate group. But you could be right, and they are a separate group.
Waiting for Eon to drop a massive bomb to asplode my argument.

Do we know how long the show that's going to replace it will last? Because it might just be the equivalent of a filler, in that it's to space out the gap between the anime and manga.

I guess from the wording of this chapter, you can't say that all the Quincy have been killed, just the ones from 200 years ago, and their descendants hate the Shinigami's guts. I guess I took Ishida's words too literally from my first read through. Alright, I concede.

I won't deny your second statement. It's really really hard to respect Kubo as an author.

Also, love Yumichika's new look.

But seriously, Quincys...how ballsy are you. Just walk right up to the Head Captain? I don't see this ending fantastically. Kinda wondering what the overall plan was, as I doubt Yama has a 'don't shoot the messenger' policy.

I would love it if Kubo just stalked this club. I don't even care.

I suppose if you look at that like literally, it can work out. Though to me, it's fairly logical that some had hidden from both the Soul Society and Ishida.

Well to me they look similar. I just jumped to that conclusion because of Ivan and the whole speculation thing got to me. I think Kubo focused on the black masks/shadow to accentuate the "mysterious group declaring war on SS" part. They could be wearing the traditional Quincy outfit underneath to further hide their Quinciness.

Ichigo & co. got to SS with that gate thing under Urahara's shop. I think it started with a "G".

Actually, Garganta is the name of the technique specifically given to the ability Aizen/Gin/Tosen/Arrancars use to open gates to the human world/SS and the gate itself. Urahara's gate to Hueco was called a Keikaigi. His gate to SS was like a backdoor, extremely ****-illy constucted Senkaimon.

Both the Keikaigi and backdoor Senkaimon allowed Orihime, Sado and Uryu to, in a way, convert their physical bodies into Reishi so they could travel into Hueco/SS. Bounts did the same thing in their anime-only exploits. I'd venture to guess this is the same thing the SS does when moving their Gigai between worlds.

I've only seen half of the filler so far, but I guess it depends on the focus of what/who. The focus of the plot was the Mod Souls. The focus of the action/the viewers were the captain fights.

STILL it kiiiiinda sucks they LET it get this close... Bleach's chapter speed is really nothing new, and if they wanted, I'm sure they could have squeezed in another couple season's worth of fillers... Then again, ummmm

we often get sick of fillers.

I mean, like, what. the zanpakuto rebellion thing and the beast sword arc right after was LONG AS HELL. Interesting (to an extent) but still long as hell...

Ah, okay. Then there remains a question. How would the Quincies find a way to construct that gate?

lol, does Kubo even take care of the fillers? The only one I know he did was during the second last arc, where he helped to design the characters. I don't think he helped much with the plot or whatnot.

Still.

Vandenreich. KriegsErklarung. Are those in any way German? If those are then my theory of Eon = Kubo is perfect, or Kubo is simply a huge fan of Eon's fanfic XP

Been doing some googling, and yes, KriegsErklarung is German. It means declaration of war. And Vandenreich means something like "Vanden Empire". (Correct me if I'm wrong, Eon).

As far as I remember, the Quincies don't have a German motif, did they? And the Arrancars are Spanish.

.... Holy ****. Bounts have become canon. *shot*

But what Mayuri said at the beginning of this arc.. Ah well, I should probably go study for my finals. XD

We get a glimpse of Ichigo's new bankai... though it pretty much looks the same as the old one >.>

Ivan intrigues me. Maybe he is some sort of a new species, more like a cross between Arrancar and Quincies (though he was angry when Ichigo called him an Arrancar) or some sort of... "evolved" Quincies. They still have that cross thingy so yeah. Hmm.

Arc, most Quincy techniques are in German. Letzt Stil is German for "last style". Seele Schneider literally means "soul cutter". Sprenger means explosion. All the Gintou techniques are in German as well. So yes, these guys are Quincy.

Your German translations are fine.

Just noticed this, but his cross is different from Uryuu's and Ryuuken's crosses, it doesn't have the circle encasing the five-pointed star.

Ivan's new technique is... not something we've seen before. It almost seems like a Quincy incarnation of Kidou, but that's what the Gintou techniques are, right? He never announced the technique's name either, and it seems like he used an object to cast it. Odd.

Maaaaaaybe a sort of different theory of evolution Quincys.

Probably the same case with Ivan's bow or whatever weapon he's using.

When Ivan was doing his little chant thing, the only thing I could think was "It's a zanpakuto release poem (like Jushiro's or Kyoraku's) and we're about to have confirmation that Eon is Kubo/Kubo is stealing ideas from Eon."

I hope Kubo doesn't kill him off, he's the most under-rated lieutenant.
Isane is a close second...

So I'm guessing there's more members of this Vandenreich.

I'm enjoying Ichigo's fight with Ivan. :D
Looks like they have a modified version of Gintos
I'm predicting that he'll be Ichigo's personal enemy this arc.

What hoodie? o.o

This hoodie, the one Ichigo is wearing. (http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/483)



Heck yeah. XD
I actually am waiting for the rumored Unohana fight. The longer the wait, the better the satisfaction when we actually arrive at that scene :3 Though I certainly hope the rumor is indeed true >.> What with this being the last arc and all

How mad would you be if only the beginning and ending of Unohana's fight were shown? Like the panel shifts to Ichigo's fight before she makes her move and shifts back to it the split second she finishes off her opponent(s).




Didn't it sort of fire something? The battle pages were a bit, eh, foncusing.


I think Ivan threw that giant X thing at Ichigo. But that his bow thing is way more badass than Uryuu's bow. PEW PEW PEW!



lol. It's over 9000


What 9000!?!? There's no way that can be right!



Sasakibe. :p

Whatever :p. He may or may not be dead.

When Ivan was doing his little chant thing, the only thing I could think was "It's a zanpakuto release poem (like Jushiro's or Kyoraku's) and we're about to have confirmation that Eon is Kubo/Kubo is stealing ideas from Eon."

I know, right? XD


This hoodie, the one Ichigo is wearing. (http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/483)

Ah, didn't notice that. XD Yeah, that's a pretty awesome hoodie. :3


How mad would you be if only the beginning and ending of Unohana's fight were shown? Like the panel shifts to Ichigo's fight before she makes her move and shifts back to it the split second she finishes off her opponent(s).

I will slowly drown Kubo with Tsukibana. And actually let him live so he can draw her scene. If not. I'll repeat it 10 more times. *evil laughter* (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYDHciy0Vis)

See, even Unohana agrees *shot*

Gee, I hope not though. >.> I know he did that with Kensei and Yammy. Kensei maybe because Kubo is keeping his abilities hidden until some further time like Yumichika (I mean now that he's a Captain again we'll probably see him fighting in the future during the war and whatnot) and Yammy because presumably he didn't have any other power than getting bigger and we all are familiar with Kenny and Byakuya's powers anyway. I hope.

Which reminds me. How many other people do we need to really see their powers? Shinji, Shunsui, Ukitake, Unohana, Rose, Love all yet have to go bankai. And we don't know what Kensei's does. And Yamamoto, but I doubt we'll see it until the very end. It might just be an overly huge body of fire even then.

Pew pew pew. XD Indeed.


Whatever :p. He may or may not be dead.

Eh, if he's only seriously injured, then Unohana would be able to heal him. I mean, she was able to heal Hiyori who was cut in half, so, yeah. Even if he's dead.... Orihime can bring him back to life should Kubo decides. XD


Theory regarding the Quincy.
Not so much of a theory than an idea I saw on the manga thread though. :p Ivan seemed so excited when Ichigo was about to release his bankai. Presumably, he can seal or steal the power of someone's bankai? Assuming that the masked figures in Soul Society are of the same kind as Ivan, wouldn't that make them able to seal/steal Yamamoto's power, or something like that?

Love the hoodie. Need to get it.

I AM HERE. THERE IS NO BETTER SECURITY THAN THIS.
^Most epic line he has said.

I like how analytical Ichigo is being. It's nice.

He worked out that he was being taunted, so why did he do it anyway? Seems a bit silly.

I was SO EXCITED when I saw that he was going to lose his Bankai.

What actually happened? I don't quite get it.

In a way, I'm glad and disappointed that Ichigo did not lose his powers. Glad in that it would have been repetitive (how many times has he lost them so far?), but at the same time, it means he wouldn't rely on his Bankai. Maybe if he had lost his bankai but kept his shikai?

Oh wow, Sasakibe. I hope he dies.

5 days? So 50 chapters?

He worked out that he was being taunted, so why did he do it anyway? Seems a bit silly.

Because he wanted to know what Ivan was planning. He had basically nothing to go on, so he decided to take the risk and spring the trap to get more information. Truth be told, I would've done the same thing.

What actually happened? I don't quite get it.

Ivan used whatever the hell kind of spell that was, Ichigo broke out of it before it could take full effect, Ichigo used Getsuga Spamshou.

That is what would've happened, likely. I mean, he did say "say goodbye to your Bankai" and needed him to release it before using the spell, so I'd assume that it had nothing on the rest of his abilities.

Oh wow, Sasakibe. I hope he dies.

This is Bleach. Has any good guy ever died since the series started?

My thoughts exactly. :p

I thought his bankai would be something... new, seeing that his shikai is a bit different. But it seemed to be the same old one =|


Oh wow, Sasakibe. I hope he dies.

XD That's one of the most sadistic thing you've ever wrote. They did pierce him in the chest (heart?) with a huge-a** cross thingy though. But Unohana can work miracles :3

I prefer Kubo to kill someone whose power we've already seen though.... like Momo. *runs from angry min* I mean, we haven't exactly see what his shikai could do yet.

So, as of late, I've been scrolling around DA a lot. Through my travels, I have become immersed in the world of Bleach OCs. It really made me notice how much people like ripping the canon a new hole.

You mean Ivan? Bleach.wikia puts his name as: アズギアロ・イーバーン in Katakana, or Azugiaro Iibaan. I think the scanlators went with "Azgiaro Ivan", while Viz went with "Asguiaro Ebern", even though they're both technically correct.

Asguiaro gets me nothing on its own.
Ebern is a town in Germany.

Nah, it's fine, I trust you enough on that.

I don't quite understand what Yamamoto did... Break the protective barrier?

"Easy to guess"? So I assume Yama probably already knows who would want to wage war on SS. Since they're Quincies, then Yama might know that not all of them were eradicated.

bleach.wikia defines the Shakonmaku as "The dome-shaped reishi barrier that surrounds Seireitei." in case anyone wondered what it was.

"They can bankai." It SOUNDS like "they can use Bankai", but from what we've seen with Ivan/Ebern, he might mean "they can STEAL bankai". If Yamamoto knows stuff we don't, he might have already known that they were trying stuff with Bankai.

"This shadow only hides the chosen ones." Yay, cryptic. Might have something to do with "True Bloods" that was mentioned earlier, or something.

Ohlook, the ice palace thingy.

"You kidding me, who would bow before someone like you?" Reminds me a LOT of Grimmjow V Ulquiorra.

Oh look, an arm was cut off. Was it Zam that had the list?

So...yeah. Retreat. Probably going to focus on Ichigo's reaction to Ivan, and him telling Ishida/Chad/Orihime(/Urahara?).

I'm lauhging a bit at how MangaReader's source for Bleach is all messed up.
I guess they hadn't fully prepared for all the traffic they would get since MangaStream and MangaFox were visited by Viz.
But of course, I'm only laughing about it since I already read this week's chapter.

Ok, so we finally learn that Ivan/Ebern is connected to Vandenreich.
Which means that they're most likely Quincies, too.
But Sasakibe's hopefully not dying words have thrown in a nasty wrench...

And with an addition to Kubo's demented fetish, we get to meet the leader of Vandenreich!
But really, is that going to get another arm? A prosthetic might be cool.

Ice?

Heh, that whole scene of Ivan and the arm cut seems a lot similar to the Arrancars. Different characters, maybe, but Grimmjow got his arm cut by Tousen because he went to the Living World without receiving any orders and didn't he come back badly defeated like Ivan?

And that Emperor... reminds me of Zangetsu. o.o

Possibly. Though looking at it:
"They can... Bankai." In English, we use Subject-Verb-Object as our basic sentence structure, but in Japanese, it's Subject-Object-Verb. So it's possible that he was just cut off before he could finish his sentence, which gave us the strange sentence.

Seitz is cool. I enjoy hit characters. The only probably I find is in the pitch difference of Seitz and Lodge. While Lodge had a low pitch for Kenpachi, Seitz's voice is a bit more high pitched, not really high pitched, just a bit more high pitched is all.

13th March 2012, 12:32 PM
Did I hear talk about u being overpowered? Ha.
I'll be brutally honest, even will all of us together, we can't even wipe out a small continent in one attack. Compare that to OCs that can blow up planets.

Now lets compare ourselves to Bleach, since our OCs are based in that universe. Hence their brokenness and be measured here fairly.

Common Sense says to just compare ourselves to the Captains, but I'll ignore it and compare us to everyone.

Normal Hollows are nothing to us.
Same for Menos Grande.
Gillains? Pffft.
Adhujea(Sp)? My for a seated officer it would need actual effort pput into the battle to kill it.
Arrancar/Vasto Lorde - Actually get written as something to actually give a care about in fights.

...so we're about as broken as Vasto Lorde Arrancar? Pfft.

Ichigo's group...meh. We'd only truly need to use bankai on Ichigo, and cause he has main character power...he'll troll us to death.
Isshin, Yoruichi and Urahara are clearly Captain level fights at least, so anyone vs anyone on of those three would be an actual fight.

...Any shinigami under Captain is an instant win. Since with how our power equals out, we could easily just reaitsu crush them like Yamamtoto did to Nano back in SS Arc.

So on to our Captains vs Captains comparison ILP has Charts for! :D

Canon Captains have a much wider range in power difference. Since Yamamoto could take on Ukitake, Shunsui and Unohana without showing any signs of getting owned anytime soon.

...Golde can't beat 2 captains at once. Granted how powerful he is varies from fic to fic, but charts show he's not THAT much ahead of us point wise.

Another battle example is Kenpachi vs Tousen and Komamura.
...if anyone here even DARED to THINK they could hold off let alone defeat two captains at once would be laughed at. ALOT.

Skill plays a huge factor as well, this is what I assuming you're labeling us all as "godmoddy/overpowered/etc..." for...

Let's see:
The Captains here pretty much CAN play nice and work with each other in almost any combination.
Bleach Captains nearly DIED by not working together.

Now compared to OCs:
We aren't derps that (w)angst over our "dramatic" pasts and actually know HOW to fight. Well can also use actual strategy AND have a wide access of abilities at our disposal.

...curbstomp isn't strong enough a term to describe how ONE sided that comes off as.

Finally, let's look at this fact: ALL the captains have weakness. Several in fact. Decapitation being one we all share, even blue.
I mean hell you could find a ton of ways to kill a captain here, easiest would be to get another captain to try to kill'em.

We aren't godly beings of destruction that bring despair to any civilization that hears of our names. We're just a quirky and colorful bunch of competent shinigami.

I'll be brutally honest, even will all of us together, we can't even wipe out a small continent in one attack. Compare that to OCs that can blow up planets.
Eh, tell that to the Zanpakuto Rebellion fic I'm thinking up for the club. XD


Now lets compare ourselves to Bleach, since our OCs are based in that universe. Hence their brokenness and be measured here fairly.

Common Sense says to just compare ourselves to the Captains, but I'll ignore it and compare us to everyone.

Normal Hollows are nothing to us.
Same for Menos Grande.
Gillains? Pffft.
Adhujea(Sp)? My for a seated officer it would need actual effort pput into the battle to kill it.
Arrancar/Vasto Lorde - Actually get written as something to actually give a care about in fights.

...so we're about as broken as Vasto Lorde Arrancar? Pfft.
But we have non-captain, non-bankai club members too. Right?
They might have a challenge from one of those special Gillians or a Gillian Arrancar.


So on to our Captains vs Captains comparison ILP has Charts for! :D
*shoots you a slightly annoyed glare*


Overall, I mostly agree with MC's points.

The funny thing about powerlevels is that it's difficult to actually apply it to how much we could destroy. Especially when you get to more fundamental powers like space/time, shadows, water, fire, etc. Which I'm sure that if we all went completely all out we could destroy a chunk of the planet.

Arrancar/Vasto Lorde - Actually get written as something to actually give a care about in fights.

...so we're about as broken as Vasto Lorde Arrancar? Pfft.
That's about as strong as canon Captain level shinigami, correct? Which is roughly where we're aiming for anyway. It's boring to write a story about Arrancar Adjuchas because then it doesn't show off how serious the threat is, and how strong we have to be to beat them.


So on to our Captains vs Captains comparison ILP has Charts for! :D
As I love pointing out so much, for something like this, the charts and numbers are a pretty bad place to compare, since not all of us are even on the same scale. The numbers really are just a way for me to nerd out with charts.

Finally, let's look at this fact: ALL the captains have weakness. Several in fact. Decapitation being one we all share, even blue.
Of course all of our captains have weaknesses, there's a difference between overpowered and absolutely broken beyond all repair. And are you saying that decapitation is a weakness? Because it sounds like "we have weaknesses! we can die!" Yeah, we aren't immortal, we're still really powerful.


I mean hell you could find a ton of ways to kill a captain here, easiest would be to get another captain to try to kill'em.
Bringing Kusari's "overpoweredness is relative" here; we aren't overpowered compared to each other.

We aren't godly beings of destruction that bring despair to any civilization that hears of our names. We're just a quirky and colorful bunch of competent shinigami.
At no point did I say we were "godly beings of destruction that bring despair to any civilisation that hears of our names" (though that WOULD be cool), and you are exaggerating my comment slightly.

*Waits for counter arguments*

>.> I was looking forward to a positive post with some fic details or something.

It's an MLP:FiM thing.

I know. XD



Canon Captains have a much wider range in power difference. Since Yamamoto could take on Ukitake, Shunsui and Unohana without showing any signs of getting owned anytime soon.

We aren't godly beings of destruction that bring despair to any civilization that hears of our names. We're just a quirky and colorful bunch of competent shinigami.

That's not canon, and Unohana didn't fight

The first part sounds like Greek gods. XD
The second sounds like kusari's favorite show. Colorful = Rainbow Dash


Eh, tell that to the Zanpakuto Rebellion fic I'm thinking up for the club. XD

Finish it

So here's a tease of the first chapter of the Zanpakuto Rebellion fic I had mentioned earlier.
Let me know what you think, and if you'd like to see more.

There stood a lone figure in a dim, thick fog. The kind of fog that people would say "I could barely see three feet in front of me," or "It's so thick, you could cut it with a knife." Upon closer inspection, you could make out certain features of the lone figure in the fog. The figure turns out to be a man. A man wearing some interesting robes, and a stylish hat. The man also appears to have long hair, and something hanging from his hip. But the man seems to have sensed something. His head is shifting from side to side, and his eyes are darting around too. He reaches for the object hanging from his hip. You realize that it's a sword, as the man draws it from the scabbard. If not for the fog, you might see the blade of the sword reflect the moon light. The man readies himself as he senses something approaching, but he doesn't appear to know from which direction it is coming.



"You've got some balls to raise a blade against an executioner," said a deep, resonant voice (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN21YONMrSg) from the fog.

The robed man with the sword suddenly realized who he had been sensing from within the fog and lowered his sword. "Keiri? Where are you? What is this place?" The man kept trying to locate the source of the voice, but to no avail. "Keiri, what's going on? The last thing I remember was going to bed."

"You're still in bed, Zameric. I initiated a partial Jinzen while you were sleeping. I've been sensing a strange force affecting me for a couple days now. Until now, it just seemed like a bad headache, as you might say. But I'm starting to loose control over my sense of self and odd throughts are clouding my mind. I'm afaird some one or something is trying to take control of me."

"What?! How could that happen?"

"I'm not really sure, but I need you to wake up and seal me before I lose control over my powers. I'm pretty sure you can imagine what might happen if my powers were to go berserk within the Seireitei. So wake up dammit!"

The fog started to swirl and move. It rapidly gained velocity until Zameric could feel it pushing him from behind with increasing force. Just when he felt like he would be swept off his feet, Zameric arose awake in his bed. He looked around his bedroom, seeing the faint details illuminated by the moon light from the windows. Suddenly, Zameric turned his body around to reach for his zanpakuto hanging on the wall above his bed.

Damn. The Vandenreich's leader is quite a bastard. "Well, if you're going to lie down, I guess you don't need your legs." Yikes?

I just laughed at how Inoue threw Ishida's moment back in his face with an offhand comment. That was great.

Holy ****, 107 people died in a single chapter, including one semi-important person. 106 of those people died in under three minutes. I think this is a new record for Kubo.

Nel falls out of the sky. Harribel has ben captured. And now Ivan is apparently an Arrancar too? Wtf, I thought he wasn't one by his own admission. This is so screwy.

The Vandenreich's leader has officially made it onto my list as one of the top ten Manga douchebags of all time, just below Akainu from One Piece and just above Orochimaru from Naruto.


Fanfic: Nope. Not yet. Still not done. I'm closer though. Want a preview?

21st March 2012, 6:29 PM
@Zam I already gave my comments via MSN soyeah.
I DEFINITELY think that this is one of the best chapters so far. By quite a bit.

"If you're going to sit down then I guess you won't need your legs."<- Badass. Though personally, I'm not a fan of villains killing their own forces, it definitely is something to show about his own power both in terms of how he inflicts fear, and how many soldiers he must have, of that level.

Is it just me, or has Kubo's drawing improved in general? I like how he's varied quite a bit, from the dark and serious drawing of the new antagonist, and Orihime/Ichigo's cute/round shapes.

So Ishida's getting closer to Ichigo? I guess that puts the decision of which side he'll stick with (since there is still plenty of evidence that Quincies are the core villain group); most likely he'll stay with Ichigo.

OH MY GOD SASAKIBE DIED THE MOST SHOCKING TWIST EVER.

It's a shame they didn't know how many intruders there were, that killed 106 soldiers in 3 mins.

And of course, Ishida/Ichigo's analysis of things.

NEL! It would be nice for him to explain what happened with her!

Wow, "Are you a prophet?" "No." "Then stop guessing the future." *KILL* And Ivan too. Man, people are dying all over the place today.

Arrancars? Haha, looks like everyone was right. I think that was actually good writing on Kubo's part.

And Harribel! What wasn't good writing is that he showed NOTHING of her after she got slashed that suggested that she went to Hueco Mundo at all, even if the database books said so.

Definitely a nice, dense chapter, filled with tons of information. The villain is an ******* who kills and tortures in person, the Quincies are really going all out to beat Soul Society by taking over Hueco Mundo - though how will they do it exactly? Aizen split Soul Society practically in half, and he managed to do jack squat.

And with Harribel captured, and Nel escaped, I think we'll be seeing Grimmjow in the future too - perhaps he also managed to escape, but not into the real world. And he's not likely to fight back against the Vandenreich just yet because he knows that if they have Harribel, then he has no chance.

@Eon, instead of a preview, a slightly more indepth review of the previous chapters would be nice XD

Hot dang. Boss man is very, whats the word I'm looking for? Belligerent? With his pieces. Mofo was f*ckin with them, then boom headshot. I don't know if he's an ******* or a badass.

SASAKIBE IS DEAD! Poor guy, he didn't do much did he?

Nel's back yayz!

Ok going back to Ivan. So he is an Arrancar. I'm guessing some kind of arrancar that they "engineered" to have Quincy like powers/DNA?

So they captured Halibel, took over Huecco Mundo. Interesting.

[COLOR="DarkOrange"]If you think about it, the whole thing makes a lot of sense. We know that both Hollows and Wholes are both disappearing, which poses a threat to both Hueco Mundo's residents and the Soul Society. Ivan and whoever he's working for notice that both races are being effected and are like "Well this looks bad". I get the feeling that they (the Arrancars) know who's behind the disappearances and go with the "Enemy of my enemy is my friend" and reach out to SS for a temporary ceasefire to finish this threat off.

If that is viable at all, it opens up multiple possibilities for the future. It gives a way for Hali, Grimmy and Nel to reappear and the opportunity to go back to look at the mysterious bodies in Sizzle's lab (it was in Hueco remember).

And I know what you're thinking "If they want the help of SS, why go to Ichigo?" And my answer is "Many reasons my friend". Halibel obviously knows of Ichigo's victory, as she went back to Hueco after the final battle and had to pass all of those gloriously victorious shinigami. Once safely back, she could've easily found Nel and Grimmy (as they would most likely be drawn to the surge of spirit energy coming from the former Espada) and told them of what had happened.

From there, the timeskip happens. Over that time, Arrancars like Ivan come along and join Halibel's/Grimmjow's/whoever's group. When Hollows start disappearing from existence, they find out who's doing it and that it is happening to SS too. Under the "Enemy of my enemy" philosophy, they seek out a way to get allies. Knowing that they'll have no chance of just walking into SS to ask for help, they turn to someone SS owes a lot to: Ichigo Kurosaki, aka The Kid Who Stopped Aizen aka The Kid Who Found And Killed Ginjou Kugo. The Hollows figure that if they can convince Ichigo to help them, he'll convince SS for them, as SS always seems to follow Ichigo into battle. This part of the theory also gives a bit of chance to Hali/Grimmy/Nel having some high up pull in Hueco, as the latter two know him first hand and the former knows that he beat Aizen and all would know to turn to him.

Or this could be another idiotic theory. Who knows.
You guys remember this theory I made? Yeah. Parts of it aren't looking so farfetched now are they.

Nothing specific to say about the manga except that it was pretty awesome. The return of --- was awesome. Killings were awesome. Good chapter overall.

That was an interesting chapter, though I have something to... comment on it. However, since I don't really feel like writing one, I'll hope what ILPy explained to you in MSN is similar to what I'm thinking.

You don't say? I was kinda sad though because we never really got to know what Gonryoumaru was capable of. :<

How does Zangetsu kill... Friggin Friegen and Ivan? He didn't seem to move o.o With his... point?

I know, right? It's kind of like he expected everyone to either read the database book or check Bleach wiki. Unless he plans on doing a flashback stuff some time later on during this arc, which I doubt, because if he would, he wouldn't have revealed that Hallibel is alive in the data book just yet.

So you're saying that the other hooded guys and the Zangetsu man are Quincys, and Ivan and the other guy who got killed were Arrancar? That, and the Arrancar were... kind of brainwashed (for lack of a better word) or some kind of genetic manipulation so that they have Quincy powers, or something like that?

#seconded


You guys remember this theory I made? Yeah. Parts of it aren't looking so farfetched now are they.

You mean the part where Hueco Mundo got split into 2, and half of them supported the Vandenreich and the other half seeked SS's help?

The fillers usually kill a lot of anonymous squad members. xD

I figure that either...

he was brain washed (like some others have said)
or Ivan (and maybe Luders) was new Hollow/Arrancar-Quincy hybrid

The Vandenreich's leader has officially made it onto my list as one of the top ten Manga douchebags of all time, just below Akainu from One Piece and just above Orochimaru from Naruto.
Is Aizen on that list, or are Magnificent Bastards excluded?
My replies to your comments are in bold.

Yes, the quality of the art has gone up a few notches lately.

And with Harribel captured, and Nel escaped, I think we'll be seeing Grimmjow in the future too - perhaps he also managed to escape, but not into the real world. And he's not likely to fight back against the Vandenreich just yet because he knows that if they have Harribel, then he has no chance.
Why would Grimmjow be urged to save Harribel?
From what I understand, most Arrancar didn't care for each other.
Excluding the Espada and their Fracción's relations.
And Nel seems to be the best exception, glad she's back btw. :D

This is like complete and utter mindf*ck.

So I guess Sasakibe is dead huh. Well umm hey at least he was a character most people forgot really easily and didn't really care too much about...? Umm. Yeah. Sucks to be him.

I'm more interested in HOW THE HELL NEL CAME CRASHING DOWN TO EARTH. It's kinda convenient that it was already said (in some interview or something...?) that she was gonna appear but hey I didn't expect it to be this soon... XD

I guess the other espada didn't just automatically die after the Aizen fight after all... ^^; Wish there was more to go on than just that though... =P

Anyway what exactly happened to Harribel anyway...? I'm so confused... >.< (Yeah uhh nothing new there. LOL)

I wish Nel wasn't cut off mid sentence... Damn troll Kubo. =/

Sorry for my inactivity... With last week having no chapter and school and life being really rough I haven't had a chance to come by. >.<

Here's some free cake for all of you guys, in hopes you'll forgive me... XD

I~saw~something~interesting~in~the~manga~thread~

Soooo during the 3-week break, there was something like an info column in the WSJ, which is filled with interesting tidbits.

There's the page, if you want to read it. (http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php/74735-REPEAT-REBOOT)

1. Soi Fon's arm has been restored. idk if anyone already knew this though XD Apparently, it was restored by the SS, not Orihime. I wonder how they heal something that's not even there in the first place.

2. Unohana is finally going to fight 8D
Kind of like old news, but it made my day anyway. XD And she'll reveal Minazuki's true form and unravel her braid :3

3. Renji's bankai apparently has some kind of changes

4. Shunsui's haori (the colorful one) has some kind of... history to it, which will be revealed in this arc.

5. Kubo says "I guess Shunsui will go bankai". I guess we'll finally see the bankai of the remaining captains as well. I hope.

6. Arrancars will most likely side with the shinigami.

7. "Grimmjoww might become a friend" This will make Eon's day but he said Harribell would not leave HM.

8. Hitsugaya's bankai has perfected, so expect to see some flashy new design or power I guess no surprise there

9. Kenpachi got a bankai. I wish Okay, maybe not. But Kubo doesn't seem to have plans for the 11th Squad so far. He also said that Kira's bankai is a bit... disgusting, which could mean he's already designed one for him. Who knows.

10. There's also a list of stuff that will be revealed in the final arc.. Ichigo's birth, Masaki's death, Isshin & Ryuuken's relationship, the remaining Vizards, Isshin's tie to the SS, Urahara and Yoruichi's past aaaaaaaaand the 0th Squad (heck yeah). He already designed their characters, and planned on something that will leave Sereitei in complete ruins. Something really major, perhaps more serious than Aizen.

Oh yeah. And he wants to draw Aizen somewhere in the restraints. XD


So. Needless to say, I was hyper after reading that first part of the interview. XD

Ok going back to Ivan. So he is an Arrancar. I'm guessing some kind of arrancar that they "engineered" to have Quincy like powers/DNA?
We've seen his with the cross. It's possible that you could just wear it and be trained to use your reiatsu/reiryoku so that it works.

At least we can't complain about him not killing anyone good now. XD
Finally.

You don't say? I was kinda sad though because we never really got to know what Gonryoumaru was capable of. :<

That, and the Arrancar were... kind of brainwashed (for lack of a better word) or some kind of genetic manipulation so that they have Quincy powers, or something like that?
Databooks and/or Omake and/or post-Bleach-explanation stuff.

He isn't actually Zangetsu XD Just making sure you know.
I think he killed them either with his reiatsu, or by being very very quick.

I think the Arrancars are being forced to work for the Vandenreich, or be killed horribly. They might have Quincy powers through the cross and being trained to use their reiryoku.

My replies to your comments are in bold.
Y U DO THIS?

Why would Grimmjow be urged to save Harribel?
From what I understand, most Arrancar didn't care for each other.
Excluding the Espada and their Fracción's relations.
I meant it like, he's probably in hiding, because he's not going to fight the Vandenreich. They're strong enough to capture Harribel (who was ranked 3 while he was 6), so he knows they're too strong. He probably doesn't care for her, but what it means for his chances of fighting and winning... yeah.
