What was the name of the episode that was on Toonami last night?

What was the name of the episode that was on Toonami last night?
Firstly: Please join the club first if you're going to post here. It's a bit rude to just jump in and begin asking questions. Secondly: Most of us don't watch the dubs. I'd reccommend going to Adult Swim's site or Wikipedia.

Gonna have to agree with Golde and say that I was pleased with this chapter. It showed that even Bya-kun can be shaken to the point of hesitation.

Only disappointment was the unresolving of last week's cliffy.


If you expect Tite "Arsepull" Kubo to follow the normal rules of psychology (or anything for that matter), you're definitely not as observant as I thought you were. That said, maybe the fear As puts into its opponenets isn't fear at all. It could very well be some other phenomenon that makes the most sense to be referred to as "fear".

Actually Kusari, I think this is the only place left on SPPF that people can ask a question about the dub. >.<
The episode that aired Saturday at midnight was episode 263 (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Imprisonment%3F!_Senbonzakura_%26_Zabimaru).


What is up with Ichigo and his Zampacto?
What do you mean by that, exactly?
You're not giving any kind of reference there. xD
But be careful, you may need to use spoilers.

Everyone is coming back again *wipes tears of happiness*
looks like the reviving serum worked


It is a sort of cliffhanger, because I don't expect Byakuya to die like that. He won't as fas as I'm concerned. but there goes Kubo ending the chapter saying 'Farewell.'

You just had to, didn't you?

It was translated "R.I.P" in mangastream, soooo.

Yeah :P
Actually I saw that in the Bleach manga thread and thought it was pretty funny XP



Welcome to the Bleach Club! I am the Captain of the 12th Squad, I like Pokemon (...) though I also go by ILP/Ilp/Ilpy/Ilpeh/Ilpizzy/Aielpy/Aaroniero/Anternero/Ant/Whatever.

No, I finished them a month ago. I've just been very lazy.

*Wipes a single tear*

You also go by "Whatever"? Interesting.

I see.

You mean leaked oil


Welcome to the club! I'll put you on page 1 here shortly

Awwww look who's here :D
We need cookies to celebrate this. Lots and lots of them.


What is up with Ichigo and his Zampacto?

Zampacto Like Zam said, you need to elaborate more on what you mean by that :P Also use spoilers if it pertains to the latest manga / anything not out in the dubs yet

Makes me wonder if the Japanese term that Kubo used directly translates as fear.

I found out from the manga thread that As Nodt is a male. He uses "boku" to refer to himself... Which is rather interesting, seeing that "boku" is a polite form to refer to oneself.

Hi, whatever.
lol. That happened to me once. I said "You can call me whatever you want" and this one person called me literally that.

Then it simply means you cry a tear on one eye and oil on another :p

I'll save some for you. XP

Needs more Unohana D:


I am watching Bleach right now.

Umm. That's a one-liner (read: anything that doesn't really add to the thread) and you should refrain from posting such stuffs. Perhaps you could add in more by specifying what episode and commenting on it, rather than just saying you're watching it. Also remember to use spoilers where appropriate. :x

(unless you're watching the dubs in which case I believe you don't need to... idk).

While boku is generally used by males, it is not exclusively masculine. It's sometimes used by girls (the best example I can think of is Road Kamelot from D.Gray-man). The affect of this can be either an androgynous appearance (I think for quite a while people were unsure of Road's gender) or a tomboy-ish appearance if it is clearly a girl.
As for politeness, it kind of depends, I guess? It's common among schoolboys to use boku (so when I'm in Japanese lessons, I use boku even though I would prefer to use the more polite watashi). But as you become an adult, watashi becomes more neutral and boku appears more boy-ish and kind of immature, in a way.
Anyway, yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if As Nodt IS male, but that's more because that's kind of the default gender anyway, and less so because of which pronouns he uses. I kinda rambled there but w/e LURNIN IS FUN.

Srivats, you gotta put more in your posts, or else it's considered a one-liner. Those not only get you in the trouble, but they've gotten the club in trouble before. No worries but just try to put more in, i.e., feelings about the episodes or push the conversation forward.

And Mizuhashi/Ant I've been here like every other day :P I just haven't been posting much XD I'll try to post more though. I've just been busy and the internet's been consistently down. But I'm also still trying to commit myself to the fanfic again. So I'll be around yeah :P

Manga iz out.

Oh look. Byakuya is still alive.

... Not for long. Seems like we got a confirmation he's dead now.

Wait. Did Kubo chop off Byakuya's arm as well? o.o I saw an arm there. Not sure if it's dismembered or not though.

And they can still use shikai. So it's really just bankai that the SR steals.

Looks like Renji, Rukia and Byakuya are out of the picture now. Seems like Kubo is paving the way to let us see the other characters whom we've never really seen in a fight before. I hope. Unohana <3

It would be awesome to see Unohana vs As Nodt though. They look similar Which would prevail, her scary smile or his scary technique? :P

Aaaand it's Kenpachi vs Emperor Zangetsu. I wonder how will the fight go.


Anyway, yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if As Nodt IS male, but that's more because that's kind of the default gender anyway, and less so because of which pronouns he uses. I kinda rambled there but w/e LURNIN IS FUN.

I forgot to add there's the body stature as well unless it's a she with a flat chest
It is. 8D

So Byakuya did not die from last week's attack; unsurprisingly, really, would Kubo really kill him off like that?

Ah, so As Nodt was using Byakuya's bankai against him. Would probably be clearer in the ani-oh.

THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS MANGASTREAM. (http://mangastream.com/read/bleach/22539506/4)

And Rukia is hit.

Zam, there's another arm; third panel. (http://mangastream.com/read/bleach/22539506/14)

That SR is unnamed, correct? The one who just saved Renji's bankai.

I'm surprised that - if Byakuya really IS dead - he went out with less of a bang than I had thought. Byakuya being one of Kubo's/the fan's favourite characters, I figure would have a good few chapters on him, including a monologue or some kind of closure on his death. I suppose I'll chalk it up to either Byakuya's not really dead you have to always be suspicious of Kubo or that he just REALLY wants to push the story forward.

"Looks like the only weakness our SR have is naivete" Would you consider that naivete? Or is that just outright arrogance?

And Kenpachi - the only one who hasn't been affected. It's almost a shame, really, because so many of us are looking forward to when/if he finally achieves bankai - yet he clearly wouldn't be able to use it even if he could. I don't think the leader will jump into the fight just yet (though unless Kubo REALLY wants to speed things up...); it makes more sense to leave him for Yamamoto (and/or the top 3+Shinji). His right hand man, however, is perfect canon fodder.

Yes he did.

Well, yeah, since that's what they've been saying from the very beginning...

Well, "out of the picture" for now for Renji and Rukia. Renji's been punched FAR AWAY so he could come back. Rukia was knocked down and her attacker has probably gone off somewhere.

I would think waiting until the end of the war would be more prudent to start documenting arms. We're prone to see more being chopped off. More as it develops.

What, you want another crematorial chapter for him?

Kenpachi is also another one of those characters we've seen a lot in fights. Wouldn't surprise me is Kubo easily make him lose to Emperor Zangetsu next chapter.

Because there seems to be this theory that the SR actually steals the zanpakto spirit, and not just the bankai, seeing from where Hitsugaya couldn't sense Hyourinmaru within his blade.

I don't care :p I truly am hoping for some other character to fight. Ones we've never seen before. Like Lisa and Hiyori... we don't know what their zanpakto can do up till now. Unless the changes are purely aesthetic, which would be plain stupid.

I see.

I was thinking more... monologues. More thoughts on him not being able to protect Rukia, Renji, and the Soul Society... And his thoughts on how Ichigo is going to save them. Idk, something like that is what I expect.

Ah, I see.

Makes me wonder if there are any laws/rules restricting the Vaizards' use of their Hollow powers.

I was half expecting Kubo to switch to some other fight scene. XD

All I really have to say is... Kubo, I am disappoint. -_-
I would have expected Byakuya to put up a way better fight.
He's a freaking Kido master...wth?!
And I'm sure that he's at least decent in Hakuda.
And what happened to all his fancy Flash Step combos? >.<
Orihime better revive him after this is over....

But I did love the ending! http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b5/customizer13/imhappylaplz.gif
Kenpachi has already killed two Stern Ritters!
And now he's probably going to fight the big bag.
No matter who wins this, it's going to be an epic fight. :D

That's cruel...that's just cruel. >.<

What?

I'm not sure whether that's cut off or if Senbonzakura is covering the rest of his body.


Btw, what is this crud down here? When did they start putting these on posts?

Herro Preese.

My parents have been keeping uber-busy at the farm lately, so tired.

Too lazy to comment about last week's manga, but heres this week's.

Ah, so they can use the bankai they steal. Thats makes things even worse for the Shinigami.

And now Rukia and Renji are out for now.

Byakuya is "dead" too, kind of anti-climatic though. He could of taken more hits to add to the drama, imo.

Kenpachi killed a guy, not surprised one bit. Looks like we'll be seeing him for the next couple of issues.



Zanpaktou Name; Kusari

Zanpaktou Spirit; Sword
Release Command; Kusari
Shikai Details; It is a big, tall hooded figure holding a scythe.

Bankai Name; Zetsumei
Bankai Details; It is a big, tall hooded figure holding a scythe.
Anythin.g Else; It can bring back the dead.

Because it is very important.

I'm Rex, Captain of Squad 8. But may call me Captain or Sir. Nah nah nah nah, jk. Nice to meet you, but like what everyone has pointed out, please refrain from one liners, and I think your Zanpaktou needs a just smidgen more of details.

It looks like his arm was "outside" of the attack to me, but since Senbonzakura is made out of thousands of tiny blades, it could of been.

Its the perfect set up.

That's what I expected from Byakuya's death too.

Nope, the head huncho is reserved to be taken down by Ichigo only.

I'm not sure which would annoy me more; Byakuya's anticlimactic death, or Orihime saving everyone.



Nope, the head huncho is reserved to be taken down by Ichigo only.

Which means that Kenpachi almost has to fight the right hand man, otherwise Kenpachi will have to lose his fight again the leader (which would be... interesting), or Kenpachi's fight gets interrupted (which he would NOT like).

Unless it's a Man Behind the Man/Ascended Dragon situation and the effeminite blonde man is actually the big 'ol bad.

Not really much to say on manga.

Ok, I have an idea but I want feedback before I do it. Due to my current inablity to write anything good, I thought I'd post up the first chapter of the first Bleach fanfiction I ever wrote. Would you guys be into reading that?

I have a feeling that even if that was the case, Kubo wouldn't reveal that so soon. I think a "big reveal" like that would happen towards the end, because that would require the supposed "Big Bad" having to be defeated, and this is way too soon for that.
Nah, I've kind of grown out of fanfiction. I probably wouldn't even read it let alone comment oh hell yes

Either way, whatever he uses would be all that we've seen before. If Kubo really wants to show some other characters fighting, it would be no surprise he eliminated Byakuya quickly.

Oh, you don't know. Next chapter we'll see a heavily blooded Kenpachi lying down and Emperor Zangetsu wiping off blood from his finger. KUBO TROLLING YOU. PROBLEM?

In which case Kubo needs to learn how to pace thing properly - I'm sure Oda and Kishi have pulled it off before (though none come immediately to mind because I don't remember they're storylines as well as I know Bleach's).

The word "pace" doesn't exist in Kubo's dictionary :P
I mean, we just had that crematorial chapter a few while back. Now that the mood is set to fighting, he'd better off be continuing it rather than intercepting with some monologues and flashbacks and whatnot. I myself don't want to see another flashback in the middle of the fight.

I hope that doesn't need to be spoilered. Since I didn't say anything specific in particular.

I'm taking summer class. Quarter ends somewhere in August (with the finals week being the week before Eid. AWESOME). So yeah. I still have 4 exams I believe, for 2 subjects. 8D

"I'm here to tell you a story. A story that will torture your thoughts by day and poison your dreams by night. And though I will try my best, there are no words that can be written or brush strokes laid on canvas that can describe the stark and utter horror of the night that Annabel died this fanfiction that I made.

The terribleness will haunt you."

So, this is majorly terrible. I suck now but was pure **** back then. Terrible at plot. Terrible at original characterization. Terrible at errything. *Deep breath* And here we go.

Night in the desert: harsh, barren and freezing cold. No person in the right mind would be out in this place. But someone is just crazy enough to be out.

In the distance a man was walking across a dune as a sandstorm rips through the area. The back kimono he was wearing was covered by a brown cloak. A hood was pulled over his head allowing only a small amount of his snow white hair revealed.

“Rrrrrraaaaaawwwwwwrrrrrrrr!” A loud cry echoed throughout the vast expanse of the wasteland.

“Hey jump off.” The man commanded to the small cloaked figure on his back. His voice was that of a young man, most likely no older than twenty-one. The figure did as he commanded.

The man quickly spun to his right just in time to see a large beast appear in front of him. The monstrosity had a fully black body; perfectly normal sets of arms and legs. The most outstanding feature was the white bone-like mask with emotionless black eyes and a hole right in its chest.

“Rrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwrrrrrrrrr!” It cried again.

The white haired man stuck his right hand into the left side of the cloak and pulled out a sheath completely void of a sword. “Die you damn dirty Hollow.” He cried jumping towards the beast. The behemoth raised one hand and swatted the man away as if he were a fly.

He hit the ground and rolled, stopping right in front of the small ally. He ripped the brown cloth off his shoulders and head revealing his face. His white hair hung over his forehead and wildly across the rest of his head. His eyes were a striking shade of ice blue. Though it looked as if he had never had a formal home his face was very clean shaven.

“Die.” He said to the beast. He jumped and smashed the sheath against the Hollow’s mask. It roared as everything faded to white.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Finally Mizore we made it to the Seretei.” The snow haired man said standing in front of the large wooden gate. The gate was the entrance to the Seretei, home of all Soul Reapers.

Soul Reapers are the spiritual guardians of the World of the Living. They maintain the balance between the myriad of good and evil souls.

“Really Kai?” The girl on his back had soft lavender hair and emerald green eyes. Her face was made up of softer features and was just small enough to ride on her best friend’s shoulder or carried in his arms. The wooden gates opened up and standing on the other side was a man in the same black kimono Kai did. He also had white hair but it was longer past his shoulders. The man’s apparel had one major difference and that was over his kimono was a white robe with the kanji for thirteen on the back.

“Hello.” The older man said in a very compassionate voice. “I’m Jushiro Ukitake: Captain of Squad Thirteen. And who, may I ask, are you?”

“I’m Kai and this is Mizore.” The younger man responded. “Listen Jushiro how do I get respect here?”

“Well I’d say become a Captain or Lieutenant but since you just…”

“How?”

“How what?”

“How can I become a Captain?” Kai replied.

“Well I highly doubt you could but there are two ways: learn and perfect bankai or defeat another Soul Reaper who is presently at Captain level in a fight witnessed by two hundred or more squad members.”

“I choose the latter.”

“Go Kai!” Yelled Mizore.

“What? You can’t be serious.” Ukitake gasped.

“Damn right I’m serious.” Kai replied stern faced.

“Good cause I’m coming with you.” A voice came from above the group. They looked up and saw another man in a kimono. His dark-red hair was violently spiked with thick groups on each side of his face and one right down the center. His eyes were a bluish-gray and he was about the same size as Kai.

“Fine, you can come with me but first you need to jump down here so I can learn a little more about you.”

The man jumped down from atop the wall as Kai commanded and landed right in front of him.

“My name’s Ashido. And I want quick respect just like you.”

“Ok Ashido let’s go. But we need to get one thing straight first; I fight to defeat the Captain and Lieutenant. When I win I’m Captain, Mizore is Lieutenant and you can take the next spot after that. Is that clear?”

“Yes sir.” Ashido saluted.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The trio dashed across the white stone paved streets towards the barracks of Squad Five. They reached a series of elongated buildings with a courtyard in the center. As the group sped past another Soul Reaper, Ashido spun around and pinned him against the wall.

“Where’s your Captain and Lieutenant?!”

“Captain Rokin is in the next door on the left.” The rookie stammered.

Kai ran up and pounded on the next door. “Get the hell out here!” He yelled. A man with shaggy brown hair answered the cry.

“What do you want?” The captain asked.

“Bring all the members of your squad to the courtyard in fifteen minutes.”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fifteen minutes later…

“The entire squad’s here. So why’d you call us all out?” Rokin asked.

“Simple.” Kai said smugly. “I’m challenging you and your Lieutenant to a two on one match for control of this squad. Right now there are two hundred members present so if I win I win your Captain position. Mizore stay with Ashido for the time being.”

“Time to begin.” Rokin cried. He and his Lieutenant, a man with shaggy black hair, pulled their swords from their sheaths.

“Draw your weapon!” The Rokin’s subordinate ordered.

“Fine.” Kai said removing the sheath from his waist.

“That’s not a weapon where’s your zanpakuto?” Ashida yelled from behind.

“Never got one. When I tried to materialize it all I got was the sheath, but a voice kept telling me that when I get strong enough the sword will appear.” He shook his head to get the hair out of his eyes.

As soon as the fight began Rokin and Akani both charged straight at Kai. He didn’t move until two seconds before the attacks hit. He just raised his sheath and blocked their swords.

“Too easy.” Kai sighed. He thrust the sheath forward and knocked away Akani’s sword. While he was stunned Kai clubbed the Lieutenant over the head. The black haired man fell to the ground and ceased moving.

Rokin checked and found that the man on the ground had completely lost his pulse.

“One down.” Kai said quietly.

“You killed him you bastard!” Screamed the brunette. The older man clenched his sword tightly. “Eviscerate (1)! Kurosame (2)!” The sword became engulfed in a dark blue aura and began to change shape. The hilt and guard widened and the single blade split into two that curved together at the ends. Shark like teeth formed on the cutting edge of the blade.

“Oh so that’s your sword’s shikai.”

The battle raged for over two more hours, with Kai on the losing end. By this point both men had removed the top of their kimonos. Kai was covered head to toe in cuts and gashes while Rokin was virtually unharmed.

“Ha ha ha! Who’s losing now you arrogant little bastard?!” Rokin laughed manically. He struck as he did and laid Kai flat on the ground. He slipped into unconsciousness.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“What?” Kai jumped up quickly. He was standing in a grove of bare trees with orange-brown leaves all over the ground. As he stood astounded in the sudden change of scenery a gust of wind caused the leaves on the ground to be thrown into the air. They all converged right in front of him and started to take form. The snow haired man closed his eyes for a moment and when he opened them he was standing face to face with a beautiful woman. She wore a long dress made out of leaves.

“Who are you?” Kai managed to slip out.

“I’m the spirit of your zanpakuto.” Her voice was as soft as the breeze, her eyes were green as the first leaves of spring and her hair was a light shade of brown.

“Wait.” He said excitedly. “Do I finally get to use my sword?”

“Exactly. But only if you fight for those you care for. Okay?” She said softly.

“Yes. I promise.”

“Well then to use my power just say…”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He jumped to his feet and reattached his sheath to his waist except this time it held a sword. The hilt was wrapped in orange-brown thread; the guard was a gold rectangle with a leaf print.

“May the winds scatter the autumn leaves! Aki Kojaku (3)!” He drew his zanpakuto as the sword began to glow orange-brown. A tunnel appeared running all the way up the blade absorbing wind and the blade became superheated. A veil of autumn leaves swirled around him.

“Wha! What is this spiritual pressure?!” Rokin was feeling true fear. Through his fear the Captain charged in anyway.

“Big mistake.” When the swords clashed the heat from the challenger’s sword sliced the Captain’s clean in half. Kai re-sheathed his sword. He stepped forward and punched Rokin knocking him out.

He bent down and took the captain’s white robe and threw it over his kimono. He got up and walked over to the Lieutenant’s body and pulled the crest off the right arm.

“Ashida, Mizore get over here.” He tied the crest around the young girl’s arm and she jumped on his back.

“Great job out there.” The red head congratulated him. As his victory was being celebrated by the entire squad. A small black butterfly landed on Kai’s finger and relayed a message.

“Damn it.” Kai groaned. “Everyone shut the hell up. Let’s wait to have the party. Mizore and I have to go to a Captain and Lieutenant meeting.”

*cough* Have you been looking at my tabs <.<



Yeah, pretty much.

Haha, No :P You told me yourself :3

Well you know, it's the Final Arc, you expect things to be different and not get trolled every god-damn chapter >.>


XD

lol. As if you don't know Kubo. :P


Ickle Little Pervert He is ^.^

Same reason as above, expected more.



"I'm here to tell you a story. A story that will torture your thoughts by day and poison your dreams by night. And though I will try my best, there are no words that can be written or brush strokes laid on canvas that can describe the stark and utter horror of the night that Annabel died this fanfiction that I made.

The terribleness will haunt you."

So, this is majorly terrible. I suck now but was pure **** back then. Terrible at plot. Terrible at original characterization. Terrible at errything. *Deep breath* And here we go.

Night in the desert: harsh, barren and freezing cold. No person in the right mind would be out in this place. But someone is just crazy enough to be out.

In the distance a man was walking across a dune as a sandstorm rips through the area. The back kimono he was wearing was covered by a brown cloak. A hood was pulled over his head allowing only a small amount of his snow white hair revealed.

“Rrrrrraaaaaawwwwwwrrrrrrrr!” A loud cry echoed throughout the vast expanse of the wasteland.

“Hey jump off.” The man commanded to the small cloaked figure on his back. His voice was that of a young man, most likely no older than twenty-one. The figure did as he commanded.

The man quickly spun to his right just in time to see a large beast appear in front of him. The monstrosity had a fully black body; perfectly normal sets of arms and legs. The most outstanding feature was the white bone-like mask with emotionless black eyes and a hole right in its chest.

“Rrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwrrrrrrrrr!” It cried again.

The white haired man stuck his right hand into the left side of the cloak and pulled out a sheath completely void of a sword. “Die you damn dirty Hollow.” He cried jumping towards the beast. The behemoth raised one hand and swatted the man away as if he were a fly.

He hit the ground and rolled, stopping right in front of the small ally. He ripped the brown cloth off his shoulders and head revealing his face. His white hair hung over his forehead and wildly across the rest of his head. His eyes were a striking shade of ice blue. Though it looked as if he had never had a formal home his face was very clean shaven.

“Die.” He said to the beast. He jumped and smashed the sheath against the Hollow’s mask. It roared as everything faded to white.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Finally Mizore we made it to the Seretei.” The snow haired man said standing in front of the large wooden gate. The gate was the entrance to the Seretei, home of all Soul Reapers.

Soul Reapers are the spiritual guardians of the World of the Living. They maintain the balance between the myriad of good and evil souls.

“Really Kai?” The girl on his back had soft lavender hair and emerald green eyes. Her face was made up of softer features and was just small enough to ride on her best friend’s shoulder or carried in his arms. The wooden gates opened up and standing on the other side was a man in the same black kimono Kai did. He also had white hair but it was longer past his shoulders. The man’s apparel had one major difference and that was over his kimono was a white robe with the kanji for thirteen on the back.

“Hello.” The older man said in a very compassionate voice. “I’m Jushiro Ukitake: Captain of Squad Thirteen. And who, may I ask, are you?”

“I’m Kai and this is Mizore.” The younger man responded. “Listen Jushiro how do I get respect here?”

“Well I’d say become a Captain or Lieutenant but since you just…”

“How?”

“How what?”

“How can I become a Captain?” Kai replied.

“Well I highly doubt you could but there are two ways: learn and perfect bankai or defeat another Soul Reaper who is presently at Captain level in a fight witnessed by two hundred or more squad members.”

“I choose the latter.”

“Go Kai!” Yelled Mizore.

“What? You can’t be serious.” Ukitake gasped.

“Damn right I’m serious.” Kai replied stern faced.

“Good cause I’m coming with you.” A voice came from above the group. They looked up and saw another man in a kimono. His dark-red hair was violently spiked with thick groups on each side of his face and one right down the center. His eyes were a bluish-gray and he was about the same size as Kai.

“Fine, you can come with me but first you need to jump down here so I can learn a little more about you.”

The man jumped down from atop the wall as Kai commanded and landed right in front of him.

“My name’s Ashido. And I want quick respect just like you.”

“Ok Ashido let’s go. But we need to get one thing straight first; I fight to defeat the Captain and Lieutenant. When I win I’m Captain, Mizore is Lieutenant and you can take the next spot after that. Is that clear?”

“Yes sir.” Ashido saluted.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The trio dashed across the white stone paved streets towards the barracks of Squad Five. They reached a series of elongated buildings with a courtyard in the center. As the group sped past another Soul Reaper, Ashido spun around and pinned him against the wall.

“Where’s your Captain and Lieutenant?!”

“Captain Rokin is in the next door on the left.” The rookie stammered.

Kai ran up and pounded on the next door. “Get the hell out here!” He yelled. A man with shaggy brown hair answered the cry.

“What do you want?” The captain asked.

“Bring all the members of your squad to the courtyard in fifteen minutes.”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fifteen minutes later…

“The entire squad’s here. So why’d you call us all out?” Rokin asked.

“Simple.” Kai said smugly. “I’m challenging you and your Lieutenant to a two on one match for control of this squad. Right now there are two hundred members present so if I win I win your Captain position. Mizore stay with Ashido for the time being.”

>Yeah, all you do is read M rated Homestuck fanfiction >.>

All I do is read M rated Korrasami shipfics.

I like the title :3 Terribleness
This is, I presume, a Cross-over between us and canon?
Aww, a me-based fiction :D The way you portrayed me, looks like a bad-***, like a different. And I'm kicking some Captain's and Lieut.'s arses just like that? Over-powered much? :P
Well, from the looks of it, it's pretty much a bit like Ichigo, the Zampakuto showing up part.
Who's Mizore, and Ashido particularly?

Sorry about the review, not much.. I know. I have a headache, I'm starving, feeling like an insomniac and other crap what not >.>
I can't even think properly.

30th July 2012, 12:15 AM
their
The word "pace" doesn't exist in Kubo's dictionary :P
I mean, we just had that crematorial chapter a few while back. Now that the mood is set to fighting, he'd better off be continuing it rather than intercepting with some monologues and flashbacks and whatnot. I myself don't want to see another flashback in the middle of the fight.
Huh, I normally don't mix up my their/there/they're. Odd.

I suppose? Though it's really jumping around a lot, so it's hard to find a good stepping stone.


So, this is majorly terrible. I suck now but was pure **** back then. Terrible at plot. Terrible at original characterization. Terrible at errything. *Deep breath* And here we go.
Why.
Why did you keep this?
Why?

DOESN'T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE IT[/B]"]


Night in the desert: harsh, barren and freezing cold.
Alright, okay, that was fine. A nice use of rule of three there, immediately sets the scene. This was the high point of the fic - everything went downhill from here... I'm kidding btw


No person in the right mind would be out in this place. But someone is just crazy enough to be out.
Their right mind.
The wording of the second sentence is awkward, and I'm having trouble thinking up an alternative.


In the distance a man was walking across a dune as a sandstorm rips through the area.
Could have been described much better, much more detailed. "A shadowy figure" instead of "a man", pretty much any verb instead of "walk", you should describe the scene to set the mood, and maybe even to foreshadow if good/bad things will happen later. I dunno, anything.


The back kimono he was wearing was covered by a brown cloak. A hood was pulled over his head allowing only a small amount of his snow white hair revealed.
Again, pretty bland description. "A few tufts of snow white hair escaped the dark hood which covered most of his head."


“Rrrrrraaaaaawwwwwwrrrrrrrr!” A loud cry echoed throughout the vast expanse of the wasteland.
The onomatopoeia is definitely not needed.


“Hey jump off.” The man commanded to the small cloaked figure on his back. His voice was that of a young man, most likely no older than twenty-one. The figure did as he commanded.
Needs a comma after "hey" (and a LOT of times elsewhere in the fic). There was a cloaked figure on his back and we only learnt now? Why keep "the figure" an unknown, whereas the protagonist was directly stated to be a man, and his description very quickly being described.



The man quickly spun to his right just in time to see a large beast appear in front of him. The monstrosity had a fully black body; perfectly normal sets of arms and legs. The most outstanding feature was the white bone-like mask with emotionless black eyes and a hole right in its chest.
Getting pretty tired of seeing "the man" again and again. Also, it's a massive monster, there's no such thing as "perfectly normal sets of arms and legs". Also, I would describe the hole in its chest at the point where you describe the black body, since we're working chronologically largest feature to smallest feature.00


“Rrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwrrrrrrrrr!” It cried again.
"Unnecessary onomatopoeia!" I cried again.


He hit the ground and rolled, stopping right in front of the small ally.
The small what.


He ripped the brown cloth off his shoulders and head revealing his face.
You should have mentioned something like "being able to move more easily now, he...". Otherwise it just seems like "A HOLLOW! I MUST TAKE OFF MY SHIRT."


“Die.” He said to the beast.
"Die he said" makes him sound so deadpan in my head.

It roared as everything faded to white.
"Everything faded to white"? What? Makes it seem like a movie scenario "fade to white, cue ending theme song".


“Finally Mizore we made it to the Seretei.”
Needs a comma.


Soul Reapers are the spiritual guardians of the World of the Living. They maintain the balance between the myriad of good and evil souls.
Is that really necessary?


“Really Kai?”
Needs a comma.

standing on the other side was a man in the same black kimono Kai did.
...kimono that Kai wore.

The man’s apparel had one major difference and that was over his kimono was a white robe with the kanji for thirteen on the back.
Mmm, I don't know what it is, but the phrasing of "the kanji for 13 on his back" really puts me off.

“Hello.” The older man said in a very compassionate voice. “I’m Jushiro Ukitake: Captain of Squad Thirteen. And who, may I ask, are you?”
Wait, why is Ukitake at the gate for the Seireitei? He's not on guard duty is he. Besides, he's kinda sickly, and that should have been shown.



“Well I’d say become a Captain or Lieutenant but since you just…”
No. He'd probably ask what squad he's from as well. And I'm sure Ukitake is definitely against the idea that only Cap. and Lieut. deserve respect. He would have answered something like "be hard working and compassionate" or something.

“How?”

“How what?”

“How can I become a Captain?” Kai replied.

“Well I highly doubt you could but there are two ways: learn and perfect bankai or defeat another Soul Reaper who is presently at Captain level in a fight witnessed by two hundred or more squad members.”
He just... answered him like that?


“What? You can’t be serious.” Ukitake gasped.
Ukitake would probably have just laughed it off.


“Fine, you can come with me but first you need to jump down here so I can learn a little more about you.”
"I have no idea who you are but come with me on my adventure!". Also, really awkard wording. If you were going to go with that, I would at least say something like "Come down here and tell me who you are - maybe I'll think about letting you join me."


“My name’s Ashido. And I want quick respect just like you.”
I should really just stop. Anything more is killing me.

“Ok Ashido let’s go. But we need to get one thing straight first; I fight to defeat the Captain and Lieutenant. When I win I’m Captain, Mizore is Lieutenant and you can take the next spot after that. Is that clear?”

“Yes sir.” Ashido saluted.
All I have in my review notes is:
wat.
Which, I think, covers my thoughts very well.

As the group sped past another Soul Reaper, Ashido spun around and pinned him against the wall.
They sped past him, then they pin him?


Kai ran up and pounded on the next door. “Get the hell out here!” He yelled. A man with shaggy brown hair answered the cry.

“What do you want?” The captain asked.
No description of the captain, or what he's doing, and he answers immediately, and... wow.

“Bring all the members of your squad to the courtyard in fifteen minutes.”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fifteen minutes later…

“The entire squad’s here. So why’d you call us all out?” Rokin asked.
HE ACTUALLY DID IT WHAT.

“Simple.” Kai said smugly. “I’m challenging you and your Lieutenant to a two on one match for control of this squad. Right now there are two hundred members present so if I win I win your Captain position. Mizore stay with Ashido for the time being.”

“Time to begin.” Rokin cried.

Okay I have notes for the rest of the fic but I am literally going to give up now. I'm not even going to bother reading through the fic a second time and properly typing out my response because I think I'm going to have an aneurysm.

Congratulations.

Ahahahaha. I forgot he has that nickname XD It was Eon I think who called him that first?

Anyway. Little perverts aside, seems like there won't be any new chapters for the next two weeks. Like Kubo is taking a break next week (or this, rather) and no Shonen Jump the week after that. Which means that next chapter will be out on August 15 (or we might get an early chapter like on Monday or Tuesday).

Sooooo.. Until that time. See you. :P

Actually, it might be three. The SJ scanlation page says to expect the next chapter on August 20th.

I heard from the manga thread (idk if it's true though) that Kubo has pneumonia. Gee, I hope he gets better soon.

And now we have to rely on topics to get the club going until that time

Maybe I should start writing again. lol. But I'm too lazy I have class until third week of August >.>

We haven't had a topic for such a long time too. Ran out of ideas to create a new one, maybe I should start brainstorming to create more forbidden Kido spells.

Oh gawd I hope so. My ability to read manga has been compromised recently due to attention span reasons and I've really only been reading two manga (Deadman Wonderland [cause the anime sucks dee-ick] and Bleach)


> I heard from the manga thread (idk if it's true though) that Kubo has pneumonia. Gee, I hope he gets better soon.

No he must stay sick forever. Recruit Ryohgo Narita and Kazuma Kondou. Kubo will create the basic plot, Narita makes it make sense and Kondou draws it. That team CANNOT. EVER. LOSE. EVER.


So, in an effort to keep us afloat for the summat weeks until the next chapter, I think I'm gonna go ahead and post some of the awesome pics I find on DA. Installment #1 is as follows:

EDIT: Over in the ASB, we sometimes get off on tangents about random things. Today (the 4th) we started talking about Dragonball: Evolution and other manga that would suck as live action movies. One of the guys I'm friends with came up with this:



> Bleach

Itchy-goo is now a complete redhead and uses his "spirit sword" to slay "demons" who were never human in any way, shape, or form, "spiritual pressure" is now called "soul energy," and it all turns out Itchy-goo is actually Jesus in Purgatory. Orohime is an obvious robot angel and Chad is a cyborg like Teen Titans' Cyborg. Either that or he's a sentai ranger, and Motsumoto (sp? [drunkish on Cape Cods]) is now a redhead A-Cup. Hollows are only given a cursory mention, and Aizen's plan to take down the soul society fails with less than three deaths, and he himself is locked up. Rukia is called "Lucy" and Itchy-goo is an only child.

Makes me wonder... I guess, if there's always at least one person to review, someone maybe me? could write a fanfiction. That would keep the club alive.

Source? Always post everything with a source!

No he must stay sick forever. Recruit Ryohgo Narita and Kazuma Kondou. Kubo will create the basic plot, Narita makes it make sense and Kondou draws it. That team CANNOT. EVER. LOSE. EVER.
Well, Narita is at least writing a Bleach Novel. (http://www.animenewsnetwork.co.uk/interest/2011-08-17/durarara-author-ryohgo-narita-to-write-bleach-novel) If we didn't already know.

It even kind of looks like Kubo's work.
But wasn't Orohime holding Nel when the mystery person(s) attack Kirge?
If Kubo brings back Grimmjow, I hope he brings back Gantenbainne too.

Rukia being Lucy was my favourite bit.
Kubo did say in an interview that a partial basis for Rukia's name was the word "Lucia" because she's like Ichi's "ray of light" and lucia means light or some shite like that.


I love Guess Who, that's a great piece of artwork right there!
It even kind of looks like Kubo's work.

If Kubo brings back Grimmjow, I hope he brings back Gantenbainne too.
My thoughts exactly.

That'd be cool. I like that character that I don't feel like spoilering for.



What's that 'ASB'?

Ohdeargod, my eyes! D':
Please don't let something like that ever happen.

so it might have been dropped or something...
"Anime Style Battling" aka "the place in which Eon learned never to fight a Gigalith with a Sandshrew"

You should see the one he did for Naruto

I'm hoping it got dropped. It'd probably worse than what we imagine.

This club is actually alive *tears of happiness* Cookies for everyone! I've got a new favorite now: oatmeal cranberry cookies


EDIT: I hear the Anime will resume once enough distance have been created with the Manga, and that it closed down because the Fillers created a drop in viewers everytime.

That sounds good :3 Would love to see Unohana in a battle. Animated. 8D
Though we may still be a long way off from there...


So, in an effort to keep us afloat for the summat weeks until the next chapter, I think I'm gonna go ahead and post some of the awesome pics I find on DA.

EDIT: Over in the ASB, we sometimes get off on tangents about random things. Today (the 4th) we started talking about Dragonball: Evolution and other manga that would suck as live action movies. One of the guys I'm friends with came up with this:

Awww, I've completely forgotten about dA. I wonder if jjchopper made any new drawings.

Orihime is a robot? Hell yeah she is. (http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/6596/bleach030113.png)


I blame Byakuya fangirls.

Makes me wonder... I guess, if there's always at least one person to review, someone maybe me? could write a fanfiction. That would keep the club alive.

Well, Narita is at least writing a Bleach Novel. (http://www.animenewsnetwork.co.uk/interest/2011-08-17/durarara-author-ryohgo-narita-to-write-bleach-novel) If we didn't already know.

That's it! Oh well. He'd better not kill Hitsugaya then or he'll get diarrhea next.

I'm waiting for Eon's chapter

Has anyone actually read the novels? Is there a place to read it online? :P

@Zam: Gantenbainne doesn't need to come back. He's... useless as far as I've seen him.

Unrelated - but that reminds me of something else. I had an idea to get a Guess Who gameboard, and replace the card with Bleach characters. We already have a LOT of characters, depending on how far you want to go (humans/Ichigo's group, shinigami, arrancars, vaizards, XCution, even zanpakutou and bount if you want). A quick search leads to a £5 board so...

I figure it's still in its development stage. They're kind of "alright, let's make a movie!" and are probably still finishing up on stuff like the script, cast, and all sorts of things that I have no idea about because I have no idea how a movie is actually made *shrug*.


Kubo did say in an interview that a partial basis for Rukia's name was the word "Lucia" because she's like Ichi's "ray of light" and lucia means light or some shite like that.
I probably like that little tidbit more than I should.

Hey, I put Unohana in my posts. They're Bleach related :P
Though I don't think it really matters? I've seen other clubs where members just talk about their daily lives and whatnot with no relation whatsoever to the club's main theme.
As long as it's not one-liners. I guess.
I like to think we're a pretty good club, standards-wise.

That is true. We usually talk about Bleach related stuff anyway. The only reason we aren't talking about it now, is because we don't have new material to talk about. And we thought up almost every reasonable topic make too.


And get bashed by everyone else? :p

Not if you do it strategically.

A recent Gravity Falls episode is similar-ish in idea to that.

High school maths is all about instructions. All about reading the questions, knowing what it is you have to do, and going through the steps of how to solve that kind of question.
But when you get to a much deeper level of understanding (think: learning to drive a car vs learning the mechanics of a car), then yeah, memorising isn't so much of a bother, because then things become more intuitive.

We have quite a lot of members (and at any time we usually have at least 3 active members), we almost always have at least something Bleach related, we strongly dislike one-liners, we make fanfiction and Kida makes fanart, we usually have topics, or at least discuss the manga/anime, we're pretty organised, and we have all sorts of fun with making our own OCs and zanpakutous and stats and stuff like that.

Chapter is out. /inb4 Zam comes in and comments

Three more SR revealed... dead. I would have liked to see what "The Question" was able to do, since Kenpachi didn't exactly state her powers, but eh. More juicy fights coming after this so not complaining :3

Aaaaand he attacks Emperor Zangetsu, who looks as composed as ever. My instincts tell me Kenpachi is going to bite the dust anytime soon, but who knows.

Switch to Ichigo... His "protect you" line never gets old. Total waste of pages if you ask me. I hope he doesn't escape anytime soon. I want to see other Captains fight. Not him.

Ohlook, it's the arrow with which Sasakibe was killed.
And yup, we're going to see his bankai, finally. Seems like the purpose of Sasakibe's existence was to die and let someone else reveal his bankai. How sad.

But hey. It's the Captain Commander. If he loses to his vice captain's bankai, I'm going to be very sad. His shikai should have been more than enough to scorch the Overkill SR guy.

That's it. Pretty nice chapter with loads of stuff happening, but we're left with even more cliffhangers. I wonder which of the three will be resolved first. I'm hoping to see Sasakibe's bankai, but knowing whose blade it was last few chapters wouldn't be so bad either.

Bahahaha, I love how Kenpachi explained how he killed the three Quinzis.
I like your term better Kusari, so I'm gonna use it. :p
Basically..."The first guy was too loud, so I cut him in half; the second one talked too much, so I sliced her throat; The third tried to copy me, so I showed him who the real Slim Shady was."
Then Kenpachi proceeds to attack der Führer, but Kubo cuts it off just as the epic battle starts. :/

Ichigo's still stuck...
Wait, did I just see Bringer Light?
And some black spiritual pressure, but that's probably from his bankai...

Woah, Sternrittern O is a bad-***, even for a Quinzi. :D
"The more I kill, the stronger I get"
He sure has quite a lot of moxie, huh?

Things and stuff about Bleach.

I love how Kenpachi explains his slay of 3 SRs. "They were all annoying me, so I just killed them."

And their letters stand for their powers, ok cool. But SR Y "The Yourself" Loyd Llyod, what kind of names are those? I get the powers, but both of his names don't sit well with me.

His majesty is a boss, he stopped Kenpachi's blade with his arm.

I predict that Ichigo discovered some kind of power boost trying/getting out of the sphere.

"The Overkill", I like this guy. Kind of wished he faced off against Kenpachi. Captain Commander up in here, sh*t just got real...er. Realer, because sh*ts already real with everyone dying and what not.

Its a figure of speech. Its happens when two or more guys get together and try to out do each other, either by story of accomplishment, competition or by just showing off in general.
When he thinks he has something over me, he'll literally turn his nose up, puff up his chest and starts to talk to me in a very condescending/arrogant tone. He always make me want to bash his face in.

Even though he might of broken loose, hopefully Kubo won't talk about him for a couple of chapters. Like how he hasn't mentioned Urahara in a while.

I'm guessing another Captain will jump in then Ichigo comes in after that.

Oh. You meant pissing off? XD

Not really, but in some instances it will lead to someone being pissed. But using a simpler explanation, pissing contest means you & your fellow males compete to become top dog/alpha male, saying anything you can do, I can do better than you. Just watch a dunk contest or some kind of other sporting event, thats pretty much a prime example of a "pissing contest."



Ahaha. I thought it was on your keyboard or something. So you've had to copy paste.

What did you think I did?


LOTS of posts...

Its a good thing.




Telekinesis would be best for me :3 Or almost anything involving time control or travel or stuff like that.

We're all just converting our bankai into mutant powers :P.




I was actually thinking of Homestuck

I don't read Homestuck, so...

Yeah...





If he's gonna make up names then at least have some kind of logic.

Yes, that.

Do you guys seriously expect me to mention EVERYBODY who occasionally comes on MSN? There's a reason why Cell, Zam and I are the first three mentioned.

I was actually thinking of Homestuck

If he's gonna make up names then at least have some kind of logic.

No, I meant presenting it to the club. Like all the other presentations that I did (which were all to the club), that were around this time.

Anything else?

I would expect nothing less from you.

You and your Homestuck.

*shrug* Be thankful it wasn't Nanana Najahpoop, or I would have seriously cracked up.
And you expect Kubo to have logic? Psssh. Tell that to his plot over the past few years. But he makes Unohana an awesome character so I won't complain. :P

OH. The way you said it (next week, presentation) made me think you were presenting this stuff for a, I dunno, math project in class >.>

There's another one: Who will be fighting Unohana :P


Wah na na, Jack Bandit! He's not a ninja, Rex.

Even though he might of broken loose, hopefully Kubo won't talk about him for a couple of chapters. Like how he hasn't mentioned Urahara in a while.

I'm guessing another Captain will jump in then Ichigo comes in after that.

Not really, but in some instances it will lead to someone being pissed. But using a simpler explanation, pissing contest means you & your fellow males compete to become top dog/alpha male, saying anything you can do, I can do better than you. Just watch a dunk contest or some kind of other sporting event, thats pretty much a prime example of a "pissing contest."

What did you think I did?

Jack Bandit, now that sounds like LF2

Amen.

Oh, let him be stuck there for another decade or so. :P

Ah, I see. Google is not your best friend on this

I dunno, pressing some combination of keys to give you that character maybe.

We could probably do quite a few of these. Pick a random word and turn it into a power:

Word: Exponent
Power: I can amplify a person's ability; this can mean making my allies stronger, and making my opponent's powers too strong that it damages them. For example, Mayuri's poisons become so potent, even he is affected by them (too strong for his own antidote/antibodies to fight against).

Letter: T
Word: The Talk
Power: He just... talks. Has the power to influence whoever he's talking to to follow whatever his commands are. Usually takes only two dialogues for his target to completely follow him, like "You know, you should kill yourself. Yeah, why don't you do that?" /suicide.

His powers are only limited to beings that possess their own spirit energy though, so he can't tell a tree to suddenly fall down or something. Zanpakto spirits are influenced though.

Not really hard to stop him once you know his abilities since you can just block your ears.

Bit cheap. :P

Hm.. I can make a bunch of these.

Letter: F
Word: The Flicker
Power: Simply flickers on and off in existence. I.e. is able to make parts of his body (or the whole body) disappear at times. No, totally didn't steal that from Tobi

Letter: I
Word: The Imitation
Power: He simply imitates your power. Different with the Yourself guy in the way that he doesn't change into you, it's simply mimicking your power. He also keeps mimicked powers in his memory so the more abilities he copies, the more dangerous he becomes.

... And so on...

Am I the only one who thinks of Clow Cards when I think about these? XD

I got bored. *yawn*

A pleasant warm breeze swept through the trees in Sereitei. The full moon was rising slowly, shining its gentle beam on the various buildings and landmarks, casting a pleasant glow in the silent night. Most of the shinigami were sleeping peacefully in their respective barracks, except for the select insomniac few (and also for those on guard duty).

As silent as Blue raiding the 4th Squad cookie stash, 3 figures appeared at the top of the Sokyoku hill; a petite girl who appeared to be in her early teens, a man of moderate height with white hair and a bulging head and a tall man with flowing yellow hair, in that order. The surrounding atmosphere decidedly got colder. After looking around and confirming their surroundings, the first to speak up was the white-haired man. “Well, that was easier than I thought it would be. The stupid shinigami are pretty lackadaisical with their security, with us being able to sneak in like this.”

“Loose,” the yellow haired man corrected. “Huh?” “You meant loose. Lackadaisical means to lack spirit or liveliness, or simply a purpose. The shinigami does have a purpose of protecting the place; it’s just that they aren’t too tight about it.”

The white-haired man grumbled. He started to retort. “Whatever, Ed. You and your grammar nazi can go-” but he was cut short by the man called Ed.

“Wrong word there, Rick. Grammar nazi is a person, not an act. You meant to say –“

“Oh shut up!” The white-haired man sighed in exasperation. “This is why Reina is so much more fun to be with than you. And stop calling me Rick. It’s Rico for Aizen’s sake.”

Ed shrugged. “Anyway, we’re here. Let us accomplish our mission first, eh? Then you can blather all you want. I want to get back to sleep already,” he yawned, and looked at the small girl who was eyeing them the whole conversation. “What do you say, Reina?” he asked, to which the girl simply blinked and looked away, showing no sign whatsoever that she understood or even heard what Ed said.

“It’s useless, I tell you,” Rico spoke up again. “Reina never talks. You know the Fuurinkazan battle standard? The third quote should have been ‘As silent as Reina’. Would have made a better fit.” He yawned. “God, your sleepiness is catching, and I’m not even usually sleepy at times like this. Let’s get this done with.” Rico started to make his way towards the steps on the side of the hill. Ed followed suit, but suddenly the atmosphere became quite. Dead quiet. There was not even the sound of the wind. Both men turned around and saw that Reina had whipped out a small knife from who knows where, and was holding it up her mouth.

“Cease all sounds, Eternal Silence,” the words were barely a whisper, but it had the intended effects nonetheless. A five-petal brooch-like white flower on Reina’s head began to glow and grew. In a liquid motion, the flower became a small elaborate pyramid-like structure on top of her head. Four tubes grew out from the sides of the structure and latched themselves onto Reina’s hips. She began to float and her feet morphed to form a trumpet-like shape. Her hands turned into deathly white blades, gleaming in the moonlight. Reina began to hum a slow, melodious tone. “Looks like we got ourselves a visitor, or Reina wouldn’t be releasing so fast. I wonder who?” Ed looked around. He saw three black-clad figures running towards them. Judging from their apparent spiritual pressure, these are nothing more than mere runts, he thought. Ah well. Let Reina have fun.

~ ~ ~

In the hospital, on one side of the room was Captain Commander Golde, sitting on a chair and sucking a piece of candy. He watched as Arceus walked around one shinigami who was lying on the hospital bed – enveloped in a column of water bubble – while scribbling on a notepad and muttering to himself. A few minutes later, he seemed to reach a conclusion and made his way towards Golde, who finished his last piece of candy and stood up. “Well?”

“Well, yeah.” Golde cocked one eyebrow. Arceus cleared his throat, and began shuffling through his notepad. He sighed. “I’m not much of a forensics person as I am a doctor, but I could surmise this much: this person died of internal organ damage. The other two shinigami died of external injury; that much is evident. This one… is more sinister than it actually seems.” Arceus paused. ”He experienced lung contusion and rupture. The tissue collapse then led to embolisms in the blood vessels and other organs, causing their damage and eventually death.” He looked at Golde, who returned a tell-me-that-in-simpler-terms look. Arceus scratched his head. “Urm. Simply put, he died of internal organ damage,” he repeated the sentence he stated in the beginning. “The reason for the damage is so far unknown, but I have my hunches. The shinigami showed no visible external injury, so we can rule out an outside force. I didn’t see any traces of poison or whatsoever in the body as well. Right now, the only possible cause is blast overpressure.”

“Blast overpressure… A noise loud enough to injure you?” Golde inquired, to which Arceus nodded. “Or in this case, fatally injure. But the missing piece is-“

“Why we didn’t hear anything last night,” Golde finished the sentence. “Would it be wrong to assume that you’d need an insanely loud sound to cause lung… concussion, or whatever it’s called?”

“Contusion. Yes. A normal conversation like this is normally around 50 – 60 decibels. For a sound to be loud enough to damage the delicate lung tissues, you’d need one over 200 decibels. Which is saying a lot, since a stun grenade is only as loud as 180 decibels. Even then... The effects are normally not instantaneous, but in this case it was. Which probably means that the sound was louder than that.”

Golde mused over the fact. “I never knew you were an expert on sound.”

“Of course…" Arceus beamed. "... not. I got all these from Ant. Where else?” he continued. “So that pretty much sums it up.” He closed his notepad, and looked expectantly at Golde, who seemed deep in thought.

“All right,” Golde decided. “I’ll call a Captains’ meeting shortly. We need to inform all Captains about this. And…” he gave a fleeting glance across the hospital room, before making his way towards the door. “Bring all that you’ve got to the meeting, as well. I’d like to discuss those with the other.”

Arceus nodded. “Roger that.”

God I'm rusty. XD There you go, ILPy


That is... IMPOSSIBRU

The full moon was rising slowly, shining its gentle beam on the various buildings and landmarks, casting a pleasant glow in the silent night. Most of the shinigami were sleeping peacefully in their respective barracks, except for the select insomniac few (and also for those on guard duty).
Seems like your pretty standard scene setting - reasonably calm, quiet, peaceful, ordinary night in the SS. Which, I suppose, puts emphasis on how unsuspecting the shinigami would have been of an attack. There were no ominous storms or anything that would have suggested otherwise.
I'm not sure if "(and also for those on guard duty)" needed to be in brackets. Maybe "...select insomniac few, and those on guard duty."


As silent as Blue raiding the 4th Squad cookie stash,
Haha, that's a nice simile.

3 figures appeared at the top of the Sokyoku hill; a petite girl who appeared to be in her early teens, a man of moderate height with white hair and a bulging head and a tall man with flowing yellow hair, in that order.
Instead of "in that order", you should have said "first, a petite girl... secondly a man of moderate height... finally a tall man". It makes the order seem less like "oh and here's a small detail I'll throw on at the end".


“Loose,” the yellow haired man corrected. “Huh?” “You meant loose. Lackadaisical means to lack spirit or liveliness, or simply a purpose. The shinigami does have a purpose of protecting the place; it’s just that they aren’t too tight about it.”
I don't think you should have that "Huh?" there, because part of me is saying "start a new line for a new speaker!", though it seems like that might break the flow. So I figure '...the yellow haired man corrected. On seeing a confused look, he continued. "You meant loose."'
Also, I figure this tells us a bit about their characters. Rico sometimes uses words that he doesn't really know the meaning of - so I figure maybe he wants to make himself seem a bit more important, or more powerful, or scarier than he actually is (bit of a stretch, I guess, but that's how I would do it); and Ed (like me perhaps) is very particular of what he and what other people say. Maybe he likes teaching other people? Or perhaps he just doesn't like seeing them be wrong? Either way, he seems to tease people a bit, or maybe just Rico, in which case their relationship would be like a teasing pair of brothers.


“Oh shut up!” The white-haired man sighed in exasperation. “This is why Reina is so much more fun to be with than you. And stop calling me Rick. It’s Rico for Aizen’s sake.”
"For Aizen's sake" - I figure that was thrown in there as a funny comment, but that does tell us a bit more about the scenario. Probably a few millenia after the Winter War, all the captains have been replaced (they all have to die at SOME point), which are us. They were probably immortalised - Aizen, Yamamoto, Urahara, Ichigo, and the others, into figures of legends. The fact that Rico uses "Aizen" in place of "God" could show a kind of... allegiance of some kind? Perhaps a group of neo-Espada supporters. Or maybe he is also mocking the phrase, kind of like we do.


“It’s useless, I tell you,” Rico spoke up again. “Reina never talks. You know the Fuurinkazan battle standard? The third quote should have been ‘As silent as Reina’. Would have made a better fit.”
"Reina never talks" - quite nice foreshadowing - her power is of sound, and she never speaks. I like that.
"Fuurinkazan" - Google gives me two main suggestions; a Japanese Drama, and the other suggestion, quoted from wikipedia

Fūrinkazan (風林火山?), literally "Wind, Forest, Fire and Mountain", was the battle standard used by the Sengoku period daimyo Takeda Shingen, quoting chapter 7 of Sun Tzu's The Art of War: "Move as swift as a wind, stay as silent as forest, attack as fierce as fire, undefeatable defense like a mountain." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C5%ABrinkazan)
So I figure it's not much to look into, except a cultural reference.


He yawned. “God, your sleepiness is catching, and I’m not even usually sleepy at times like this. Let’s get this done with.”
Perhaps a foreshadow to Ed's powers? Something that induces sleep or drowsiness?


“Cease all sounds, Eternal Silence,” the words were barely a whisper, but it had the intended effects nonetheless. A five-petal brooch-like white flower on Reina’s head began to glow and grew. In a liquid motion, the flower became a small elaborate pyramid-like structure on top of her head. Four tubes grew out from the sides of the structure and latched themselves onto Reina’s hips. She began to float and her feet morphed to form a trumpet-like shape. Her hands turned into deathly white blades, gleaming in the moonlight. Reina began to hum a slow, melodious tone. “Looks like we got ourselves a visitor, or Reina wouldn’t be releasing so fast. I wonder who?” Ed looked around.
Few things:
- New line for new speaker
- Why does that release seem so familiar? I'm certain I've read that description before. Maybe someone's arrancar profile?
- What is she? Nothing of their appearance seems out of the ordinary, so my first thought of Arrancar (based on that transformation) is wrong (unless it's a "maskless arrancar"). Perhaps a shinigami? Though you left out the key detail of what they're wearing. HMMMMMMMMMMMM

“I’m not much of a forensics person as I am a doctor,
Which I think is a nice touch - people seem to kind of... group people together "scientist - must be good at all forms of technology/robotics/engineering, great at chemistry (read:can make explosives) and knows all about the human body!"
Though I would use "forensics expert" rather than "person". Makes it sound more proper.

“Why we didn’t hear anything last night,” Golde finished the sentence. “Would it be wrong to assume that you’d need an insanely loud sound to cause lung… concussion, or whatever it’s called?”
My first thought is simply that the frequency was too high/low, but you could still "feel" that, if it was that loud. So perhaps Reina kept him confined in a space, that prevented the sound from escaping?



Golde mused over the fact. “I never knew you were an expert on sound.”

“Of course…" Arceus beamed. "... not. I got all these from Ant. Where else?” he continued.
Haha, I like that.

Arceus nodded. “Roger that.”

Alright - off to a good start. It seems pretty standard, to be honest. "Group of people go in, some people get damaged, they leave". Though I wonder why they went to the SS in the first place? Especially just those three. They wouldn't have gone in just to injure a few people - that would have been pointless (as the SS would just become more wary and tighten their their security). And there would have been a need for all three people, too - so Ed and Rico had to have done something (unless one, or even both, were just back-ups and/or medics).

Next chapter will probably have the captain's meeting - which I figure will be pretty standard; Arc re-explaining things, but with someone (Ant?) revealing some more information (like, specifically, who/how many/what might have entered and how).

As usual, you're overanalyzing stuffs. I swear I don't even think about half of the stuff you write here when I was randomly writing the chapter.


Seems like your pretty standard scene setting - reasonably calm, quiet, peaceful, ordinary night in the SS. Which, I suppose, puts emphasis on how unsuspecting the shinigami would have been of an attack. There were no ominous storms or anything that would have suggested otherwise.
I'm not sure if "(and also for those on guard duty)" needed to be in brackets. Maybe "...select insomniac few, and those on guard duty."

Idk, that just seemed right (You're going to see a lot of this kind of reply).

It is.


Instead of "in that order", you should have said "first, a petite girl... secondly a man of moderate height... finally a tall man". It makes the order seem less like "oh and here's a small detail I'll throw on at the end".

I like "in that order" more in the sense that... writing "firstly... secondly... finally..." makes it seem like a... list-ish?


I don't think you should have that "Huh?" there, because part of me is saying "start a new line for a new speaker!", though it seems like that might break the flow. So I figure '...the yellow haired man corrected. On seeing a confused look, he continued. "You meant loose."'

They are Arrancars, btw


"Reina never talks" - quite nice foreshadowing - her power is of sound, and she never speaks. I like that.
"Fuurinkazan" - Google gives me two main suggestions; a Japanese Drama, and the other suggestion, quoted from wikipedia

So I figure it's not much to look into, except a cultural reference.

Yeaaaaaah it's the second one.


Perhaps a foreshadow to Ed's powers? Something that induces sleep or drowsiness?

No. He's just sleepy :P


Few things:
- New line for new speaker
- Why does that release seem so familiar? I'm certain I've read that description before. Maybe someone's arrancar profile?
- What is she? Nothing of their appearance seems out of the ordinary, so my first thought of Arrancar (based on that transformation) is wrong (unless it's a "maskless arrancar"). Perhaps a shinigami? Though you left out the key detail of what they're wearing. HMMMMMMMMMMMM

Putting that one dialog in a new line seemed like a waste of space to me, so I combined it :P

You should haaaaaaaaaave

YeahIforgotaboutthatlolhaha. Isuckatwritingdetailedstuffswithoutmakingittoorepe titive.
Butyeahthey'reArrancars.


Which I think is a nice touch - people seem to kind of... group people together "scientist - must be good at all forms of technology/robotics/engineering, great at chemistry (read:can make explosives) and knows all about the human body!"
Though I would use "forensics expert" rather than "person". Makes it sound more proper.

I don't know. XD I tried to find one noun that specifies forensics as a job but I can't, so I just added the person suffix in there.


My first thought is simply that the frequency was too high/low, but you could still "feel" that, if it was that loud. So perhaps Reina kept him confined in a space, that prevented the sound from escaping?

Yeahsomethinglikethat.


Haha, I like that.

Of course you would


Alright - off to a good start. It seems pretty standard, to be honest. "Group of people go in, some people get damaged, they leave". Though I wonder why they went to the SS in the first place? Especially just those three. They wouldn't have gone in just to injure a few people - that would have been pointless (as the SS would just become more wary and tighten their their security). And there would have been a need for all three people, too - so Ed and Rico had to have done something (unless one, or even both, were just back-ups and/or medics).

Yeahsomethingofthatsort.


Next chapter will probably have the captain's meeting - which I figure will be pretty standard; Arc re-explaining things, but with someone (Ant?) revealing some more information (like, specifically, who/how many/what might have entered and how).

Idk if I'm writing a second chapter. :P


So there's this idea ILPy and I had in our convo last night, but idrk how many would really want to join. ILPy, you explain

New chapter tomorrow? :3

I like Pokemon (...)
22nd August 2012, 3:44 PM
Surprisingly enough, I actually quite enjoyed that chapter.
Okay so that's about 5 pages showing off some lightning, and telling us it's a weather-based zanpakutou.

Man Yamamoto can taking a beating.

Hahaha, it's so weird seeing Yamamoto as young as that.

Choujirou looks kind of cool with the white hair + eyes... but his face looks very generic.

I really like the flashback, it very nicely shows the relationship that they share; and the mutual respect that they have for each other. It's just really sweet.
Also on "juujisai" - the "juu" part, I think, comes from the Kanji for the number 10, which looks like a "+", which is kind of like the cross on Yamamoto's head.

Man I love Yamamoto's rage face.




As usual, you're overanalyzing stuffs. I swear I don't even think about half of the stuff you write here when I was randomly writing the chapter.
*Shrug* I had fun with it. Imo it's really nice to have a detail and a reason for each and every thing you mentioned.


I like "in that order" more in the sense that... writing "firstly... secondly... finally..." makes it seem like a... list-ish?
I guess? Perhaps "Suddenly, a petite girl appeared. She was then followed by a man of moderate height and a tall man."?


"On seeing a confused look" sounds too formal :P
Then "When he saw a confused look".


Overanalyze
They are Arrancars, btw
So? It's fun
And ah alright.

Putting that one dialog in a new line seemed like a waste of space to me, so I combined it :P
Doesn't matter if it's a "waste of space", it's a writing convention that you have to follow.

I don't know. XD I tried to find one noun that specifies forensics as a job but I can't, so I just added the person suffix in there.
"Person" is not a suffix

Makes me wonder, when I review peoples' fics, how many of you actually fix the things I spot out? Arc seems to just be fighting his case so he doesn't have to change anything




So there's this idea ILPy and I had in our convo last night, but idrk how many would really want to join. ILPy, you explain
*Facepalm*
It's not an amazing idea, all we do is just write a fic, with each chapter being written by a different person. I figure it's not meant to have massive amounts of cohesion, so the story would be pretty simple, as would characterisation. Just a case of "I feel like writing something, hey, why not just throw out a chapter for this fic?" Or something.

Don't really have a response to the manga, except that it's nice to see a certain someone's bankai explained. Pretty awesome chapter imo.

For lack of a better word. What's the right word then?

idk if you're meant to change that. More like, pointers to write a better next chapter. Like how you write essays and submit it to the professor. His remarks and comments are meant to better your writing skills for improvements in the subsequent writing assignments, not just to correct the one you just did.

I mean, I could change them but then I wouldn't repost the same chapter again, would I?

*shrug* Could work. Because I sometimes feel like writing a random chapter but I don't want to commit to writing one whole series.

Started the semester this past Monday, and it was the best first day ever.

- Had Chem lecture, after the whole intro thing the instructor cancelled the chem lab thats later in the day.
- Only piece of "homework" he gave us was to buy safety goggles.
- Went to Jumba Juice with my friend and met her other friend that's A PROFESSIONAL DRIFT RACER IN JAPAN.
- He's also deaf and taught us how to sign our names.
- My friend and I went to watch Paranorman, and since she works there, got to watch it for free.
- Got home in time to watch Adventure time.



Took me a couple seconds to realize that it was Yamamoto. Sasakibe looks cool too.

So Sasakibe's bankai in general, controls the weather. Not bad.

That old man can take a beating.

And now The Overkill is dead.




That Doug?


As in Doug Funny, Porkchop, Patti Mayonnaise & Skeeter Valentine. Then yes, that Doug.



I got bored. *yawn*

A pleasant warm breeze swept through the trees in Sereitei. The full moon was rising slowly, shining its gentle beam on the various buildings and landmarks, casting a pleasant glow in the silent night. Most of the shinigami were sleeping peacefully in their respective barracks, except for the select insomniac few (and also for those on guard duty).

As silent as Blue raiding the 4th Squad cookie stash, 3 figures appeared at the top of the Sokyoku hill; a petite girl who appeared to be in her early teens, a man of moderate height with white hair and a bulging head and a tall man with flowing yellow hair, in that order. The surrounding atmosphere decidedly got colder. After looking around and confirming their surroundings, the first to speak up was the white-haired man. “Well, that was easier than I thought it would be. The stupid shinigami are pretty lackadaisical with their security, with us being able to sneak in like this.”

“Loose,” the yellow haired man corrected. “Huh?” “You meant loose. Lackadaisical means to lack spirit or liveliness, or simply a purpose. The shinigami does have a purpose of protecting the place; it’s just that they aren’t too tight about it.”

The white-haired man grumbled. He started to retort. “Whatever, Ed. You and your grammar nazi can go-” but he was cut short by the man called Ed.

“Wrong word there, Rick. Grammar nazi is a person, not an act. You meant to say –“

“Oh shut up!” The white-haired man sighed in exasperation. “This is why Reina is so much more fun to be with than you. And stop calling me Rick. It’s Rico for Aizen’s sake.”

Ed shrugged. “Anyway, we’re here. Let us accomplish our mission first, eh? Then you can blather all you want. I want to get back to sleep already,” he yawned, and looked at the small girl who was eyeing them the whole conversation. “What do you say, Reina?” he asked, to which the girl simply blinked and looked away, showing no sign whatsoever that she understood or even heard what Ed said.

“It’s useless, I tell you,” Rico spoke up again. “Reina never talks. You know the Fuurinkazan battle standard? The third quote should have been ‘As silent as Reina’. Would have made a better fit.” He yawned. “God, your sleepiness is catching, and I’m not even usually sleepy at times like this. Let’s get this done with.” Rico started to make his way towards the steps on the side of the hill. Ed followed suit, but suddenly the atmosphere became quite. Dead quiet. There was not even the sound of the wind. Both men turned around and saw that Reina had whipped out a small knife from who knows where, and was holding it up her mouth.

“Cease all sounds, Eternal Silence,” the words were barely a whisper, but it had the intended effects nonetheless. A five-petal brooch-like white flower on Reina’s head began to glow and grew. In a liquid motion, the flower became a small elaborate pyramid-like structure on top of her head. Four tubes grew out from the sides of the structure and latched themselves onto Reina’s hips. She began to float and her feet morphed to form a trumpet-like shape. Her hands turned into deathly white blades, gleaming in the moonlight. Reina began to hum a slow, melodious tone. “Looks like we got ourselves a visitor, or Reina wouldn’t be releasing so fast. I wonder who?” Ed looked around. He saw three black-clad figures running towards them. Judging from their apparent spiritual pressure, these are nothing more than mere runts, he thought. Ah well. Let Reina have fun.

~ ~ ~

In the hospital, on one side of the room was Captain Commander Golde, sitting on a chair and sucking a piece of candy. He watched as Arceus walked around one shinigami who was lying on the hospital bed – enveloped in a column of water bubble – while scribbling on a notepad and muttering to himself. A few minutes later, he seemed to reach a conclusion and made his way towards Golde, who finished his last piece of candy and stood up. “Well?”

“Well, yeah.” Golde cocked one eyebrow. Arceus cleared his throat, and began shuffling through his notepad. He sighed. “I’m not much of a forensics person as I am a doctor, but I could surmise this much: this person died of internal organ damage. The other two shinigami died of external injury; that much is evident. This one… is more sinister than it actually seems.” Arceus paused. ”He experienced lung contusion and rupture. The tissue collapse then led to embolisms in the blood vessels and other organs, causing their damage and eventually death.” He looked at Golde, who returned a tell-me-that-in-simpler-terms look. Arceus scratched his head. “Urm. Simply put, he died of internal organ damage,” he repeated the sentence he stated in the beginning. “The reason for the damage is so far unknown, but I have my hunches. The shinigami showed no visible external injury, so we can rule out an outside force. I didn’t see any traces of poison or whatsoever in the body as well. Right now, the only possible cause is blast overpressure.”

“Blast overpressure… A noise loud enough to injure you?” Golde inquired, to which Arceus nodded. “Or in this case, fatally injure. But the missing piece is-“

“Why we didn’t hear anything last night,” Golde finished the sentence. “Would it be wrong to assume that you’d need an insanely loud sound to cause lung… concussion, or whatever it’s called?”

“Contusion. Yes. A normal conversation like this is normally around 50 – 60 decibels. For a sound to be loud enough to damage the delicate lung tissues, you’d need one over 200 decibels. Which is saying a lot, since a stun grenade is only as loud as 180 decibels. Even then... The effects are normally not instantaneous, but in this case it was. Which probably means that the sound was louder than that.”

Golde mused over the fact. “I never knew you were an expert on sound.”

“Of course…" Arceus beamed. "... not. I got all these from Ant. Where else?” he continued. “So that pretty much sums it up.” He closed his notepad, and looked expectantly at Golde, who seemed deep in thought.

“All right,” Golde decided. “I’ll call a Captains’ meeting shortly. We need to inform all Captains about this. And…” he gave a fleeting glance across the hospital room, before making his way towards the door. “Bring all that you’ve got to the meeting, as well. I’d like to discuss those with the other.”

Arceus nodded. “Roger that.”


Not bad.

Pretty generic because we haven't seen much of it, I'd assume. Like someone mentioned in the manga thread, it Hitsugaya died when Aizen slashed him, his bankai would have seen to do nothing except for a pair of ice wings.

Even though it's kind of nice to see Kubo not draw out the death of every villain, I hope he has a few more to replace the few that have just recently died.
Or I hope that he focuses more on the remaining villains.

Well, as I said, Genryuu means current-limiting. Probably something related to lightning, that's why. Jyuu is 10 (I'm sure you know that lol). And ei means stingray or something like that. At least that's what Google Translate says, but I didn't see a matching kanji *shrug* For all I know, the shape is similar to the "no" katakana. But my knowledge of Japanese alphabets only go so far :p

Trouble is, sign and spoken language don't follow the same grammar rule. You'd be muddled up and end up signing everything weird. :p Unless you sign the words and not the sentences, which wouldn't make sense (or little sense) to the deaf people.

Ah. What library?

I do, cause that's what I'm facing now. XD I want to apply for a tutor job. But it requires that you go to the class you want to tutor (in my case, that'd be Gen Chemistry and I just took that class last year >_> ). Even the application process is... intimidating, for lack of a better word.

Sure, because guarding a barrier is more important than fighting someone who threatens to kill your king, yeah

Then plug on your charger. :P


Not bad, the week started pretty freakin sweet. Got a small cold now though.

For all we know, he even lazier than Omaeda. But we never saw it because he got so little screentime. :p

*Facepalm*
It's not an amazing idea, all we do is just write a fic, with each chapter being written by a different person. I figure it's not meant to have massive amounts of cohesion, so the story would be pretty simple, as would characterisation. Just a case of "I feel like writing something, hey, why not just throw out a chapter for this fic?" Or something.

I like this idea.

Also, sorry I haven't been around. Computer...broke. Video card asploded. Then our neighbors shut their internet down XD

I'm at school so I'll be here.

I love how intense this manga is getting. It's really coming around. Yama-sama went off the deep end and I love it xD

I like his Lt.s bankai. It's a bit lackluster but it's impressive nonetheless.

And the death of "O" was amazing.

HOLY. MOTHER. OF. ****ING. ****.

This chapter was better than the last sex I had (but not really if you read this for some reason my beautiful, loving girlfriend. Did I mention you're beautiful?).

The scorching of Overkill's skin into nothingness, Yama-ji's soul reviving declaration of mass killing, Shinji, Shunsui, Toshiro and Sajin's responses and Yama-ji's appearance before Juha were some of the series' most powerful, spine shaking and beautifully terrifying moments. Tite Kubo, I raise a glass and drink to your awesomeness. Keep it up.

Not sure about my feelings on Ken-chan's possible death. Especially since he ****ed up three Vandenreich (one having duplicated him, mind you) off screen with little effort and then gets owned by one guy, off screen again.

New info:

Vandenreich's leader revealed to be named Juha Bach.
-No real comments on this one.

Yama-ji revealed to have spared Juha's life years ago.
-The name Zeruda come to anyone else's mind?

Ken-chan is revealed to be a Special War Power.
-Ken-chan and Ichi are now revealed to be Special War Powers. Assuming this is a strength based thing, it surprises me Bya-kun wasn't called out as one. Assuming the three others are Yama-ji, Shunsui and Ukitake. Could be wrong though.

Hmm, that is quite interesting, MangaStream's translation does not mention that.
It just says that Kenpachi is 'number one in strength'.
I usually take MS's translation to be closer to the true meaning.

My favorite one is when Sajin and his subordinates jump in to line, followed closely by Shunsui's little monologue.

I was thinking Kenpachi was named a special war power because he has no bankai to steal, and him just being himself.

Chapter is pretty awesome. As Nodt coming to fight Yama and dying soon after means Renji is really wiped out... at least for now. And that Nanana guy also being there, I hope it doesn't mean Rose lost to him. Kinshara is such a unique zanpakto I want to see more of it.

Anyway, that's pretty much all. Yamamoto is going bankai, probably means that the Emperor doesn't use the medal thing (I doubt he really would have used it anyway, him being the leader and all) but we'll have to see.

So his shikai burns stuff. I wonder what his bankai can do. :3 Next chapter going to be fun unless it switches to Urahara, which I'm less excited about

But this could probably mean the old man will die in the battle. Oh well, that might lure the Royal Guards out.

"There's one thing you've miscalculated... you aren't the only ones to get fired up by your boss' battle!"
I just really love that quote so much. Because in a war, it's never simply "good versus evil", and that line makes everything seem a lot... grey vs grey. A lot of these soldiers probably look up to Juha Bach in a similar way that they look up to Yamamoto; which I think is really really nice.

Yamamoto has a thing for burning up three people in one go, no?

Juha Bach has a sword? Perhaps a zanpakutou?

OH MAN BANKAI THIS WILL BE GOOD. I think he maybe might try and just burn everything before he can steal it? Or perhaps he's banking on the thought that his reiatsu is so massive and his flames so powerful that trying to steal it would be too difficult/impossible? Maybe his bankai is like Ichigo's stoic phase where he "converted reiatsu into pure strength" or something.

I don't agree with this being shades of grey fighting against other shades of grey. It's definitely black vs. white; even the imagery is there (albeit often in reverse). Juuha Bach has all the "bad guy" overtones down pat, and even his sword has a few (in bearing a similarity to old WWII-era officer's sabers of the SS), and none of the others really give off a good or even neutral vibe. Whereas the Arrancar had Espada who fought for their own reasons or didn't even want to fight, the Stern Ritter are totally committed to their goal and seem to enjoy killing and demoralizing their enemies. The only exception to this I've seen so far is the effeminate blond guy. Yeah, maybe they have their reasons, maybe the conflict is even and both sides are right, but you're definitely swayed towards the Shinigami being good just off of how bad the enemy is. Lesser of two evils perhaps.

Yamamoto has a thing for burning up three people in one go, no?

Yeah... pretty sure these guys are dead, though.

Juha Bach has a sword? Perhaps a zanpakutou?

He wasn't the only one. Kirige Opie and the girl Komamura is facing (whose name I cannot remember for the life of me) had them too.

OH MAN BANKAI THIS WILL BE GOOD. I think he maybe might try and just burn everything before he can steal it? Or perhaps he's banking on the thought that his reiatsu is so massive and his flames so powerful that trying to steal it would be too difficult/impossible? Maybe his bankai is like Ichigo's stoic phase where he "converted reiatsu into pure strength" or something.

Too powerful? Really? Against the guy who (apparently) beat Kenpachi Motherf*cking Zaraki barehanded? Even Aizen couldn't have done that. So no. Definitely not, imo.

It's probably not going to be impossible to absorb it because, like Ichigo's Bankai, Yamamoto's is a compression of his Shikai. Whereas his Shikai is huge blasts of flames that make a volcano look tame, his Bankai is just a burning sword. It gets smaller, compressed to have maximum power in minimal space. I'd guess the absorption technique works off the fact that large bodies of power are always weaker as a whole in Bleach (cases in point, Ichigo's first Zanpaktou, Grand Fisher's Zanpaktou as an Arrancar) than an equal level with a smaller total size. The absorption lets them draw in the excess power, and since the reishi that makes up the ability is expanded, it's easy to absorb and contain, like a gas or liquid. Attempting to absorb Ichigo and Yamamoto's Bankai, on the other hand, would be like the reishi absorption equivalent of trying to suck up a solid chunk through a straw smaller than the solid it is trying to suck up. Or something to that effect.

A pretty bad-*** chapter, this was.

Although, it feels like Kubo just pulled another moment like Kensei vs. Wonderweiss from back in the FKT war...
Stern Ritter "U" was last seen about to fight with Rose, but now he randomly shows up to attack Yamamoto.
What the hell happened to his fight with Rose, and what happened to Rose?! D:
It just feels like Kubo is moving too fast with this arc.

Lesser of two evils perhaps.
Well, you could argue that no fight or war is ever a pure and absolute "black vs white", and if it is, that's pretty bad storytelling to be honest. While I definitely agree without a doubt that Juha Bach is definitely bad guy (though the reasoning for him taking revenge might help us sympathise for him the wording of that sounds off), and you could argue that for the other soldiers, that could be a mix of seeing it through SS' pov, or that they haven't had as much screentime to show their relationship or motive for joining the war. I think the sway to the Shinigami is probably a mix of reasons; perhaps if the entire story was focused on the SR rather than the shinigami, our views would be flipped. And "lesser of two evils" makes it lean towards "grey v grey".


He wasn't the only one. Kirige Opie and the girl Komamura is facing (whose name I cannot remember for the life of me) had them too.

Which seems to be the most logical thing, what with his flames disappearing at the end, and the previous times something similar has happened which is kind of what I was referring to by Ichigo's stoic phase; all the flashiness is gone and it's just complete power.

Well, you could argue that no fight or war is ever a pure and absolute "black vs white", and if it is, that's pretty bad storytelling to be honest.

The absence of a clearly defined good or evil is bad? Tell that to The Legend of Zelda.

While I definitely agree without a doubt that Juha Bach is definitely bad guy (though the reasoning for him taking revenge might help us sympathise for him the wording of that sounds off), and you could argue that for the other soldiers, that could be a mix of seeing it through SS' pov, or that they haven't had as much screentime to show their relationship or motive for joining the war.

Not even. As Nodt showed definite pleasure in tormenting Byakuya, Overkill was obviously a killing monster, Kirige is such a complete ******* that he has literally no redeeming qualities, and so on. The blond guy is the only one who shows no predisposition towards inherently evil traits, the girl is the only other one and you should always beware the happy ones.

I think the sway to the Shinigami is probably a mix of reasons; perhaps if the entire story was focused on the SR rather than the shinigami, our views would be flipped. And "lesser of two evils" makes it lean towards "grey v grey".

No. There are shades of black too. I never liked the grey metaphor because it's too all-encompassing.

Ah I'm forgetting a lot of details. I should write this stuff down or something.

I would, but I really don't care enough to.

Too powerful for the sealing-thingy. Think of Goku versus Yakon. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei-o42lgWQQ)

That metaphor falls flat because Goku could've kicked Yakon to sleep without Super Saiyan, and because it was only absorption, not absorption+sealing. Besides which, the rate and power of absorption differs depending on the user. Ivan Azigaro's took a long time and required an incantation, while As Nodt's was almost instantaneous and was cast silently.

Which seems to be the most logical thing, what with his flames disappearing at the end, and the previous times something similar has happened which is kind of what I was referring to by Ichigo's stoic phase; all the flashiness is gone and it's just complete power.

But it could not be just raw power. It's just a compression of his abilities. It could have some other effect that's entirely its own.



Awesome. I look forward to it.

Glad to hear it. It's coming along pretty well.

Yammamoto.. is scary. I mean, his expressions.. He's really angry. I didn't expect him to have anger-management problem. Burning up three people just like that? Sweet. I can't wait for his Bankai, must be something impressive. I have a feeling he'll lose his sword, the condition it's in.

I was looking forward to see the Vaizards fight.. Oh well.

I don't like the name Juha Bach. It's lame. I wonder if he'll steal the Bankai, seems likely.

WHERE IS ICHIGOOOO? No, really. He's like MIA for a while. Who's he going to fight? I don't see anyone left.
I have a feeling it'll be Uryuu.. A hunch really.

Yammamoto.. is scary. I mean, his expressions.. He's really angry. I didn't expect him to have anger-management problem. Burning up three people just like that? Sweet. I can't wait for his Bankai, must be something impressive. I have a feeling he'll lose his sword, the condition it's in.

I wanted to a pun about fire and anger but.... wait.... Nope, lost it.

I was looking forward to see the Vaizards fight.. Oh well.

Kubo did that whole rally cry thing with Yamamoto, which has to add up to something. And there are some SR running around, so you could get what you want. And

I don't like the name Juha Bach. It's lame.

I'm okay with it, its not as bad a Lloyd Lloyd

WHERE IS ICHIGOOOO? No, really. He's like MIA for a while. Who's he going to fight? I don't see anyone left.
I have a feeling it'll be Uryuu.. A hunch really.

I wouldn't be all that surprised if Uryuu turned out to be some kind of Strenritter sleeper agent.


I thought I'd have fun in Uni, but it's sad and lonely ._.

Bold stuff here too.

That sucks man, I hope your situation change for the better soon.



Here's a treat, watch it.

Hey guys. I hear there's a new Bankai?

Zanka no Tachi. Appropriately powerful. Pretty cool-looking too. It's abilities are straight-forward, but hella strong so there's not much for me to discuss here.

I like Pokemon (...)
11th September 2012, 5:52 PM
I really have to say, I like the font choice that Mangastream uses for the really heavy dialogues; I imagine Yamamoto's really gruff heavy voice and it just really adds to Kubo's more... menacing drawings of the characters.

I also like how everyone across the seireitei is feeling his power. Though I wonder how Hitsugaya himself knows this exactly? I figure they would have told him, but he hasn't actually experienced it himself.

Cutting a rock and... splitting open the ground. Bloody hell.

"Anything it touches is eradicated to nothing". ****ing awesome

I like how his sword was just cleanly cut in half. Very nice.

I want to see how Juha Bach responds to this...


The absence of a clearly defined good or evil is bad? Tell that to The Legend of Zelda.
I should really play that.


Not even. As Nodt showed definite pleasure in tormenting Byakuya, Overkill was obviously a killing monster, Kirige is such a complete ******* that he has literally no redeeming qualities, and so on. The blond guy is the only one who shows no predisposition towards inherently evil traits, the girl is the only other one and you should always beware the happy ones.
Even then, I'm sure that if Kubo really wanted to develop them, he would make them more well rounded characters. Even if that is something like "doesn't kick kittens" or "tormented past".


No. There are shades of black too. I never liked the grey metaphor because it's too all-encompassing.
Can you explain the "shades of black" more? Since the whole concept of "black" (and white) is that it is pure, with no varying degrees or other shades.


That metaphor falls flat because Goku could've kicked Yakon to sleep without Super Saiyan, and because it was only absorption, not absorption+sealing. Besides which, the rate and power of absorption differs depending on the user. Ivan Azigaro's took a long time and required an incantation, while As Nodt's was almost instantaneous and was cast silently.
I don't see how "Goku could've kicked Yakon to sleep without SS" is relevant? The point I was making is that the sealant/absorber/whatever would have had not enough "space" to absorb Yamamoto's massive reiatsu. Though, I guess, the entire debate is moot now that we know what his actual plan was.

Yeah, that is a really nice little touch they put on it.
It really helps you to feel the emotions more.

I'd like to here that too.


Here's my basic reaction to Yamamoto's bankai. (http://youtu.be/95SYdjRVCR0)

It's neat to see how the Head Captain's bankai is effecting the environment.
But I have a feeling this effect will be shown in greater detail later.

"But no zanpakuto exists where tha shikai and bankai hold different powers..."
Pfft, yeah right. (http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b5/customizer13/KuboProblem.png) There are quite a few zanpakuto like that. *rolls eyes*

I don't quite understand the "west" ability of Yamamoto's bankai, Zanji-tsugoki.
Is it like a cloak of flames that he uses as armor?
And why could anyone else see it initially?

arceus03
12th September 2012, 3:32 PM
Unohana WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
About time Kubo draws her more >.>
That is all.

Er-hem. Anyway. The new chapter kind of made me think... Does zanpakto gain more power over time? I mean, Yama can't have been THAT powerful when he first got bankai (or shikai, for that matter). Let's say, for example, one thousand years from then on Hitsugaya becomes the new Captain Commander no Eon, I'm not referring to your fic would his shikai become, idk, able to simply create ice anywhere he wants?


WHERE IS ICHIGOOOO? No, really. He's like MIA for a while. Who's he going to fight? I don't see anyone left.

It'd be stupid if he doesn't recognize it though, since they all sensed Yama's reiatsu from last chapter and already know he's in the fight.

Just you wait, his shocked face this chapter would be replaced with a smirk next one. Kubo loves pulling that.

Suì-Fēng's zanpakutō (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Su%C3%AC-F%C4%93ng#Zanpakut.C5.8D)

Suzumebachi kills one person in two hits. Jakuho Raikoben kills many people in one hit.


Kensei Muguruma's zanpakutō (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Kensei_Muguruma#Zanpakut.C5.8D) (maybe, not enough info on his bankai to say for sure)

Indeed, not enough info. We don't even know what Tekken Tachikaze could do.


Kaname Tōsen's zanpakutō (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Kaname_T%C5%8Dsen#Zanpakut.C5.8D)

Fine line there, but Suzumushi affects the enemy's hearing and makes them pass out. Suzumushi Tsuishiki: Enma Korogi affects not only the hearing but extends to all five senses of the enemy.

As for the second ability, Suzumushi vibrates when it releases the high-pitched tone. You could kind of say it creates a blade per vibration, so it vibrates enough time and produces lots of blade to rain down on the enemy.


Mayuri Kurotsuchi's zanpakutō (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Mayuri_Kurotsuchi#Zanpakut.C5.8D)

This one is obvious I think. Ashisogi Jizo paralyzes whatever it cuts by poisoning the enemy. Konjiki Ashisogi Jizo is... more poison on a larger scale; now it doesn't need to cut you to poison you. Either way it messes with your nervous system.

That's how I see it, anyway. As I said, more or less. *shrug*

Fullbring revamp, confirmation I have yet to die, and no real comments on manga that no one else has said.

Fullbring Name: Blueprint
Fullbring Item: Reality.

Activation Description: Because of the effects his Fullbring has on Time and Space, it has a gradual Activation. It takes an exact full minute, although he can maintain "Activation" for up to five if he needs to.

"Activation" Conditions: The preliminary part of his Fullbring involves the distortion of Time and Space, pre-stretching a sort of elasticity into them before his true ability pushes through. The overall trend of usage must go from low to high, and he must be using it almost continuously, if either of these fail to occur, the distortions will be random and the scale is wider; a room could randomly be feng-shui'd twenty miles away near the end of his time. What does "Usage" actually entail in this form? He has a limited control of time and space. In terms of Time, he is incredibly limited, only being able to speed his own personal time, causing potential age problems, but allowing his reaction time to be ridiculous, from an outer point of view. Until he starts changing his personal time to great extents, this is not too energy-consuming, designed that way so that he could simply use it to survive the minute. His manipulation of Space is, likewise, limited. For the most part, he just moves his own position short distances (Teleportation/Shortwarping.) If the situation demands, he has the capability to move inanimate objects with no rei output and change their densities.

Fullbring Ability: When the "Activation" period ends, he stops time completely and in that time he sees the world as a 3-D blueprint surrounding him. Because there are therefore no obstructions, his sight becomes absolute for the duration, although there are limiters that keep his sanity. He can "rewrite" the blueprint within his sight but he must follow the laws of physics (IE. Can't make an unstable/floating structure and drop it on someone when the time freeze is over with, or drop them into a pit.) and organisms with mildly significant reiatsu interfere with the blueprint-he can't form anything that goes inside of where they exist (IE. can't make a spike through their body) or do anything that interferes with them. He can, basically, terraform the world around him, and potentially convert spiritual energy to matter.

The main purpose of Blueprint is to defend, to remain in a territory where the user knows all and everyone else is blind, and to relocate the user (Cannot move other people either.) While there are absolutely no offensive capabilities, it is a perfect retreat weapon. And while he can stay within Blueprint indefinitely, the longer it lasts the higher chance someone with a high enough reiatsu can, of course, shatter it.

I'm also working on a powerful zanpakutou. Not for me, and not for any character in particular. It just seemed like a cool idea. Has to do with magnetism and aligning atoms.

Edit: New Chapter
As soon as I read the title I thought of this. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSS5dEeMX64)

So it's not actually flames, just his reitsu?

I thought the Sankt Zwinger was actually do something, but its just introduced so it might.

I'll say my thoughts for now and maybe or maybe not disappear for a while. Sorry it's hard to keep up with more than facebook lately because damn school. >w<

Thoughts on recent chapters
Not much because it's too slow pacedddddd

But anyway I um I think the Yamamoto backstory is interesting

damn I was gonna say more but

it's too slow paced I hardly even REMEMBER. =(

sorry.

Know what I will try to come by when I get an email from now on. I do get an email when there's replies so as long as I'm not rushing to class I will drop in from now on... I feel bad I'm never around. sorry >.<

Chapter:-

Chapter is... okay. Would like to see it animated, if the anime is going to continue anytime soon. Nice to see that the old man's bankai is so freaking powerful he himself would be burned by it, if it goes on.

Zanka no Tachi South... is unexpected. Zombies. lol.

Anyway. With the ultimate techniques and such, it seems like Juha Bach is losing... too fast. Either a serious event is going to turn the tables, or Juha Bach is... not the real big bad. Or it really is ending, which would be really quick o.o Unohana still yet has to show up. I mean, I know from last chapter we saw her for a few panels :3 but I want to see her in fight.

Also I saw this in the manga thread. Thought it was pretty hilarious.

This awesome fight is almost distracting me from the problems with this arc so far. ;p

I almost feel sorry for Juhabach...
Head-Captain Helios deflects any attack Juhabach throws at him.

Ooh~ a new Quincy spell!
I don't think he used a Ginto.
Juhabach called it a kirchenlied; manga says it means "holy hymn", Google says "church song".
It's not on the Bleach wiki yet.
I really hope we get to see some more kirchenlied spells.
I hate how fast Kubo is going with the pace of this arc. :/

Another new technique, this time for Yamamoto's bankai,; Zanka no tachi, South.
And this one summons burnt skeleton soldiers!
So now Yamamoto has necromancer powers. xD
Can't wait to see them in action.

I wonder which is stronger, Yamamoto's skeleton soldiers or Starrk's Soul Wolves...

And shikai. Also, you mean thousands. :P

This post is filled with strikethroughs. Strikethroughs, strikethroughs everywhere

Eh. Mine probably wouldn't change that much, except for even speedier healing. That and better offense. Like the water is really pressurized it could cut through practically everything, which means a better defense overall as well. And maybe being able to change between the states of the water (ice, liquid, gas) freely.

That's pretty much it, I'd assume.

So apparently, Yamamoto's bankai is a sword that compresses the power of the ****ing sun into a space the size of a walking stick. Fun. No, wait, what. That's so far beyond any other power in the series that it isn't even funny. NOTHING even comes close to that!

Also, apparently fire can corrode things without burning them and resurrect zombies. The fu-

*sigh* I really shouldn't expect any more from Kubo and his 'creativity', but COME ON MAN.

The only way I can see this ending is that Yamamoto's prediction does come true for when he doesn't finish Bach off quickly enough, and the Soul Society does get burned to ashes. At this point, it's the only way he can lose. He's just too goddamn powerful; Bach can't even touch him, nor is he fast enough to dodge his attacks completely, and his greatest defensive technique (by his own admission) has just been annihilated by Yamamoto. There's literally no other way for Yamamoto to lose.

Far more interested in the mysterious sword-wielder in Hueco Mundo than any of this.

Make a new version of your Bankai, after several hundred years of training.

Ehh. I guess mine would just become so powerful and fast that I'm literally creating massive sonic overpressure with every swing of my sword, meaning my attacks become almost impossible to block and truly impossible to dodge without getting completely out of the way. My Zanpaktou is already powerful enough that I destroy the surrounding environment almost effortlessly, so idk how much worse it can get. I suppose I could lessen the pain drawback, but then I'd have to make a stipulation of how much it damages my own body, which it really shouldn't because the power is latent rather than from an outside influence.

I know right? There's not much point to the Royal Guard now.
They were supposed to be there if you got past the 13 Court Guard Squads, including the Head Captain.
But if you can somehow manage to defeat Yamamoto's bankai, then the universe is ****ed and/or you're the new ruler... :|

The only way I want Kubo to kill off Yamamoto now, would be for him to die as a result of using his bankai; but only after defeating Juhabach.
If Yamamoto dies most any other way now, then I think I'll just rage quit Bleach...

Fukumi No Shimo: Gathering all the moisture in a large scale, the air in a decent range around him becomes heavily oversaturated with water, and the temperature drops significantly, causing ice crystals to form in the air, and basically turning the area into the inside of a cirrus cloud, low visibility and full of ice crystals. (Atmosphere of Frost)

Hisame No Zetsumei: From the clouds that form in the sky with the coming of his bankai, the same kind of weaponry that he usually summons rains from the sky, freezing anything they touch. (Hail of Death)

Mune no Kami: Originally, a glaring weakness was held in his major offensive attacks, he controlled his weapons by freezing them over. Now, he can directly control his weaponry, making him all the deadlier against fire and heat users. (Will of god)

Keiriku: All of the ice in a large area converges on one point at high speeds, causing sudden pressurization of the area around the target as the blankets and blankets of ice converge, leaving no escape route for air, water, or the target. This is quickly followed by being crushed by ice, water, and trapped air. (Execution)

Unnamed: By freezing his own body and some of his fluids, he can control his body with a mixture of his normally fast movement combined with pure thought-based manipulation of his frosted body. Numbed, he feels no pain, on top of being as white as the background he creates, as fast as he can think, and with skin as hard as ice. He can't maintain it for long, after ten minutes it truly starts to become dangerous. (Actually been thinking about adding this to normal bankai. Probably won't. Inspired by Eon's bankai. What do you guys think?)

Still not sure how I want to introduce the atom-aligning zanpakutou I thought of.

Also I saw this in the manga thread. Thought it was pretty hilarious.

"What the f*ck is this?" Gets me every time xD.



Awww.

Almost won a giant husky dog plushy too, but dems da breaks. Overall though I did pretty well, the two giant plushies would been icing on the cake.



seems legit Which makes me wonder what we could add to our bankai to make it more... broken. Captain-Commander-level, for a better phrase. :p

Hmm, I wonder.



Hm?

I think we lost each other lol.



Sadly no. Not yet. Soon though, my hunch.

It's my hunch too. I'm come on, it's too easy so far. Some kind of trolling has to happen.


What your Zanpaktou will be like after a thousand years.

Can they physically change, too? If it can, it would change from that full body, spandex-ish suit to a armor that covers the shoulders/chest with gauntlets and boots. Kind of like the Green Dragon Ranger or the White tiger ranger. I have a cane too, because I'm old.
Ability-wise, my kido canceling field has greater range. And I have more "special moves" that I can use with better proficiency.

Edit: Manga 509

Turns out the zombies were his past subordinates, thats kind of creepy.

For a second there I thought that he was going to make an epic comeback or something.

Ichigo's bankai can't be stolen because it's too"young" and Yamamoto's can't be stolen because it's too "old". Ok, bro,whatever you say.

Soooo, what does North do now?

He's not the real Juha Bach? Dun dun duuuuuuuuun!

So. I was *sort of* right. The big bad was not the real big bad.

Hahahahahahahaha. Another troll.

Looks like Yamamoto cancelled his bankai already.

And North is really... just a simple cut? That's kind of lame.

Meh. Now Yama is going to die You wanted that, Zam, no?. He lost the plotkai armor already, so that only adds more to the possibility. Which makes me think. Seems like Kubo is rushing to show off his bankai with all the different abilities so he could die faster. lol. I mean... We've hardly seen South. And North is not very much different from East.

Kubo can't wait to kill the old man already? As long as he doesn't do that with Unohana.

Hahaha. When you said "yeah, right" to me saying I make my own luck; in response I linked to Vader's infamous "I find your lack of faith, disturbing" video. If that makes sense.

We'll probably get it like 10 chapters from now lol.

I know right? What about Toshiro? Shouldn't his bankai be unable to be stolen too? Granted he had longer time with his bankai, but he is still "young" right?

Can't wait to see yfw Kubo does that to Unohana...

It's been a lot longer than it should have been.
Nice to see no one's even close to beating my post count.


Er-hem. Anyway. The new chapter kind of made me think... Does zanpakto gain more power over time? I mean, Yama can't have been THAT powerful when he first got bankai (or shikai, for that matter). Let's say, for example, one thousand years from then on Hitsugaya becomes the new Captain Commander no Eon, I'm not referring to your fic would his shikai become, idk, able to simply create ice anywhere he wants?
Of course; there's no reason to think that once you achieve bankai, there's no more growth. Especially considering how Hitsugaya has the limit of his flowers (as a timer); and by training he could extend his timer or completely get rid of it.


Fullbring revamp, confirmation I have yet to die, and no real comments on manga that no one else has said.

Fullbring Name: Blueprint
Fullbring Item: Reality.

Activation Description: Because of the effects his Fullbring has on Time and Space, it has a gradual Activation. It takes an exact full minute, although he can maintain "Activation" for up to five if he needs to.

"Activation" Conditions: The preliminary part of his Fullbring involves the distortion of Time and Space, pre-stretching a sort of elasticity into them before his true ability pushes through. The overall trend of usage must go from low to high, and he must be using it almost continuously, if either of these fail to occur, the distortions will be random and the scale is wider; a room could randomly be feng-shui'd twenty miles away near the end of his time. What does "Usage" actually entail in this form? He has a limited control of time and space. In terms of Time, he is incredibly limited, only being able to speed his own personal time, causing potential age problems, but allowing his reaction time to be ridiculous, from an outer point of view. Until he starts changing his personal time to great extents, this is not too energy-consuming, designed that way so that he could simply use it to survive the minute. His manipulation of Space is, likewise, limited. For the most part, he just moves his own position short distances (Teleportation/Shortwarping.) If the situation demands, he has the capability to move inanimate objects with no rei output and change their densities.

Fullbring Ability: When the "Activation" period ends, he stops time completely and in that time he sees the world as a 3-D blueprint surrounding him. Because there are therefore no obstructions, his sight becomes absolute for the duration, although there are limiters that keep his sanity. He can "rewrite" the blueprint within his sight but he must follow the laws of physics (IE. Can't make an unstable/floating structure and drop it on someone when the time freeze is over with, or drop them into a pit.) and organisms with mildly significant reiatsu interfere with the blueprint-he can't form anything that goes inside of where they exist (IE. can't make a spike through their body) or do anything that interferes with them. He can, basically, terraform the world around him, and potentially convert spiritual energy to matter.

The main purpose of Blueprint is to defend, to remain in a territory where the user knows all and everyone else is blind, and to relocate the user (Cannot move other people either.) While there are absolutely no offensive capabilities, it is a perfect retreat weapon. And while he can stay within Blueprint indefinitely, the longer it lasts the higher chance someone with a high enough reiatsu can, of course, shatter it.

I'm also working on a powerful zanpakutou. Not for me, and not for any character in particular. It just seemed like a cool idea. Has to do with magnetism and aligning atoms.
Okay so for the "activation condition" of time: he must speed up his own personal time; first only by a little bit, but the longer he uses it, the faster his personal time goes. Seems okay; there's a limit to how much you can control time, and while it is similar to my own power, it is MUCH more limited.
As for the "activation condition" of space: he can teleport himself, short distances at first which gradually increase. Not at all similar to mine (though more similar to flash stepping; isn't there a Fullbring equivalent already?).
Though when you say "he has the capability to move inanimate objects with no rei output and change their densities" this doesn't make as much sense. If he can only control the flow of time for himself, then why should he be able to teleport other objects? And the idea of changing the density of objects doesn't make much sense either; at least with my own zanpakutou, changing how space and time is affected around an object changes the gravity of the object; making it appear as though it has an increased mass, but in your fullbring, there's no relevance.

Also, funny thing, his ability to view the world as a 3D blueprint is as though he is a 4D-being, looking down at a world (think of it as though we are looking down at a 2D world - where we can see all sides of a square and what's inside it; not unlike Rotrum's ability, but one dimension up). Though can you explain how moving an object above his opponent doesn't follow the laws of physics?

Protip #1: Empty your pockets of loose change when you ride county fair ride that goes upside down.
All I could think of is a guy wishing it would rain money... and then immediately regretting it when loose change flies in the air.


Just as long as you don't make the explanation really lengthy and weird
*cough*


Make a new version of your bankai, after several hundred years of training.
Hmmmmm okay, in bankai, I simply need to touch an object in order to be able to change how space and time affects them. In ascended bankai (super-bankai?), I actually have a field around me, which I can extend and contract. Anything within this field I can control spatially/temporally. The further you are, the harder it is, but increasing the distance won't make it more difficult to me (so once you're in my control, that's it). Throw in a black-hole attack and I think we're done.


So apparently, Yamamoto's bankai is a sword that compresses the power of the ****ing sun into a space the size of a walking stick. Fun. No, wait, what. That's so far beyond any other power in the series that it isn't even funny. NOTHING even comes close to that!
I think that was the point? Because he's the Captain Commander, who's so above and beyond everyone else, his power is just absolutely absurd. While I personally much prefer if he was simply "the strongest" (kind of like Golde is? Like, if he was to be replaced, any of us could reasonably be powerful enough to be the Head Captain), Yamamoto is meant to be the super-ultimate.

I know right? There's not much point to the Royal Guard now.
They were supposed to be there if you got past the 13 Court Guard Squads, including the Head Captain.
But if you can somehow manage to defeat Yamamoto's bankai, then the universe is ****ed and/or you're the new ruler... :|
Went to the bleach.wikia page of the Royal Guard; no mention about how strong you actually need to be. While, yes, you need to be stronger than the average Captain, because this is the Soul King after all, it doesn't actually say exactly how strong. Take into consideration Hikifune, ex-captain of the 12th squad. It's highly unlikely that she was actually stronger than Yamamoto; most likely just around the Unohana-Ukitake-Shunsui level strength. Unohana would not move to Squad 0 because she needs to be there to heal the SS; Ukitake is too physically unhealthy to be able to take care of the Soul King; and Shunsui probably just prefers to stay at SS with his friends.



And really? Ichigo's Bankai will evolve?
Well, yeah, I mean, he got his bankai like 2-2.5 years ago or something? He can probably get even faster, with more moves ("super getsuga tenshou!"), etc.

MasterCharizard15

Holy hell, Yamamoto is amazing. Just dayum.
Also guys, I know exactly how to beat him! Get him bored and get him to take a nap while in Bankai, so he burns himself.
...what? You were expecting 10 paragraph detailed plan? PFFT. That sword has your zombie comrades trying to murder you, I am done. So done. All our captains are babies compared to him and his bankai.

Ichigo's will get better? ...we've had 500 chapters and yet it still has 1 attack. Then again 2.5 years isn't a lot of time, plus the bulk of that time was spent powerless. Hopefully get a new attack to spam like a maniac.

Trolling at its finest. Kind of anticipated that though, with the last chapter's ending and Juhabach's losing so easily.

This is Hitsugaya-stabs-Aizen-but-it's-really-Momo all over again.

Boy wouldn't I love to see Zam's face when he reads that chapter

Wait, so both could not imitate appearance. So... what now? Didn't those two just transformed into Kenpachi and the big bad?
I'm assuming it's meant to be "both could imitate appearance, one can imitate appearance and power and the other appearance and memory."

Oh well. Now for the Royal Guards to come in I guess. If they release Aizen first. Or whatever. Next week would be interesting.

Waiting for Unohana to show up.

He just did. Eyy.

Haha, yeah. I just don't get the squishing bug part.


I know right? There's not much point to the Royal Guard now.

If Yamamoto dies most any other way now, then I think I'll just rage quit Bleach...

But if the man that Yamamoto just defeated isn't the actual 'big bad' of this arc, I'm gonna be pissed...

So now you can sleep in peace; you have their purpose now.

Still ragequitting? :p

It has.
No one spams as much as you do

You...
I didn't mean it that way. Achieving and mastering bankai is one thing. That would fit with Hitsugaya perfectly. Further mastering your bankai (or developing it, whatever) was what I'm talking about. I mean... there have to be a growth limit or something. You can't have your bankai keep growing indefinitely. Take a look at Byakuya, for example. If he were to become Head Captain, how would Senbonzakura improve more? Like, more blades?

Oh what a surprise Juha Bach was not the actual villain that was being fought it was a decoy.

When I saw the first page I just thought "...okay then".
Though their powers are very unusual. What species are they even?

Loyd and Royd. I wonder how we wrote their names in Katakana.

It was quite nicely done, I think, the decoy. Though it would have been nice if there was more foreshadowing, besides "this is too easy".

Aaaaaaaaand Aizen. I do believe I predicted that he would return, at some point.

"Only I had enough power to absorb your Bankai", so what about Ichigo? Assuming the comment on the age of the bankai is now null.

Aaaaand slashed. Okay.

While in general, I'm not too big a fan of "you weren't actually fighting the villain at all!" it at least didn't feel like a complete asspull (we were all predicting something would happen). Though I have to admit, purely from a writer's perspective, I like how Kubo managed to jump to Yamamoto going Bankai, and a nice big epic fight that probably bumped the rating up (even just a bit), and now he can go back to "normal" story-telling/fighting.



Wait, so both could not imitate appearance. So... what now? Didn't those two just transformed into Kenpachi and the big bad?
I'm assuming it's meant to be "both could imitate appearance, one can imitate appearance and power and the other appearance and memory."

Translation I'm reading says:
"...who could copy another's powers/memories and abilities/spirit in addition to their likeness."
So "likeness" probably means physical appearance.



You...
I didn't mean it that way. Achieving and mastering bankai is one thing. That would fit with Hitsugaya perfectly. Further mastering your bankai (or developing it, whatever) was what I'm talking about. I mean... there have to be a growth limit or something. You can't have your bankai keep growing indefinitely. Take a look at Byakuya, for example. If he were to become Head Captain, how would Senbonzakura improve more? Like, more blades?
Ah, well, the way I would see it, your bankai can further grow as far as your imagination can stretch (so being able to create new moves, realising what your true abilities are [think of Orihime; it's not "I can heal" it's "I can bend space/time to reject events" - she can do a lot more with that]).
For someone like Byakuya, I figure better control (to reduce his "15 cm gap" or whatever), or being faster, etc. Though it feels like there's a point where "new attack/ability" sometimes doesn't have much to do with your actual ability (thinking of Yama's "South" ability).
And of course, the more you've mastered your bankai, the harder it becomes to further improve it; your learning curve becomes less and less steep as you go on.

What would your bankai be like, after several hundred years of training?
After several hundred years of training and developing the skills on my bankai with Keiri, I learned about a different, darker form of my bankai.

Bankai Name; Jingoku no Keiri (地獄の刑吏 ; Executioner from Hell)

Bankai Details; Jingoku no Keiri creates another dimension around the user and any opponents the user wants. The dimension appears as a flaming metallic sphere from the outside. Opponents are restrained with the Kidō spell Gōmon (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?423615-The-Bleach-Club-2&p=13668189&highlight=the+rack#post13668189) and are unable to escape. Inside the sphere, the user takes on an appearance similar to Keiri. The flow of time inside the sphere seems to be faster than outside. The user of Jingoku no Keiri can perform several different forms of execution on their opponent(s). Each time an opponent is executed, they can be brought back to life to be executed again with another method.

Shimekorosu (絞め殺す ; Strangle to Death): The blade of the zanpakuto transforms into a chains to strangle or squeeze opponents.
Sashikorosu (刺し殺す ; Stab to Death): The opponent is impaled with a flurry of blades to cause massive bleeding.
Yakikorosu (焼き殺す ; Burn to Death): Use of Hadō #54 (Haien) (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Haien) to incinerate the opponent.
Bukkorosu (打っ殺す ; Beat/Pummel to Death): The opponent is stoned with a flurry of softball sized metal spheres.
Oshikorosu (圧し殺す ; Crush to Death): The opponent is crushed between two large blocks of metal; about the size of a van.
Kirihanasu (切り離す ; Decapitate): A giant guillotine will appear above the opponent and then drop on their neck.
A drawback of the bankai is that it uses a lot of energy, regardless the number of opponents. After using Jingoku no Keiri, the user will be unable to move for three days.

Is Shunsui dead as well? Didn't quite get what he got hit with.
So he's waiting for the Royal Guards..
I have a feeling Isshin will be there, just a small feeling.
Oh, look up in the sky! Is it a bird? A plane?

Kind of like that opening scene. Would've been nicer if it was used earlier, as a kind of... foreshadowing, almost, to his Bankai and death.

Will love to see Shunsui, Ukitake, and Unohana's reactions. Arc, we might finally get to see some action.

Also wow he was just sliced in half daaamn.

Fighting to the last limb... Not surprising.

"5 warring potentials" did he go over this entirely? I think he mentioned Kenpachi as one; Byakuya was probably another. I figure Unohana/Shunsui/Ukitake are the other 3. Unless, perhaps, Shinji (if he knows him as a Vaizard), and/or Ichigo.

Huh, good point with not having his arm healed.

Hmm... I feel like there's a reason why he mentioned the "old" Gotei 13.

I'm not sure if I liked the fact that he mentioned the Royal Guards, or not.
Now it's not a surprise to the reader when they enter - because we're reminded of them.
But it also means that Juha Bach has something prepared for them. It might be like Aizen's plan to split up the 13 captains by taking 2 with him, and letting 4 chase after Ichigo; leaving fewer captains to fight in the actual war. So if/when he and Aizen go to the Soul King, there'll be fewer guards to fight.

Huh, I wonder what that is. Probably not the Royal Guard - Juha Bach seems to have an idea for when they're coming. It's definitely something he didn't account for; my gut is saying either Isshin and co., or perhaps whoever "saved" Ichigo.


Anyways, how be you guys?
I zast realised I'm going to be engaged for almost a year.. Scary.
I miss MSN ._.
Great; college is so much better than high school (would have been better if I didn't take economics XD)
Oh wow, already a yeah? Bloody hell

Is Shunsui dead as well? Didn't quite get what he got hit with.

I wouldn't chalk it up to old age. I think he's making the point that when Soul Society turned from bloodthirsty warriors to peaceful, and concerned about justice and pride, they had become weak.

I don't think he is. Probably just caught off-guard and winded now.

Wow, what's with the brutal chapters this week?

Naruto had Obito killing ninjas left and right. With blood puddles.

Bleach had this.

Cut in half. Then another hand. Close enough to an arm I guess And he stepped on Yama's head. o.o
And boom.
Oh well.

Still, it's getting interesting. :3 Explosion probably from Ichigo, idk.

I wonder why Juha Bach is waiting for the 0 Squad, if it's Yamamoto he's been holding grudge with.
Granted, they're shinigami as well, but...

Aizen will come out sooner or later, I think. Unless Kubo just mentioned him last week for fun, which I don't think it is.


Is Shunsui dead as well? Didn't quite get what he got hit with.

I don't think so. He got like 2 shots from the man, that's all. And he's got plotkai protection, so not yet.
Most likely.

Heck yeah. I just hope Unohana's fight won't be rushed like Yamamoto.

I was seriously expecting another Hado #96, but no.

We know Ichigo is one; he mentioned it earlier. And Kenpachi too.

Why would the Royal Guards chase after Ichigo, though? Not like he's special or anything from their POV; Yamamoto might have deemed Ichigo as one seeing how he exposed Aizen's plan accidentally and whatnot, but I doubt the RGs have anything to do with him.

/still wondering why Juha Bach wants to kill the RGs. Maybe he plans to exterminate the whole shinigami, but that would destroy the whole Living World - Soul Society balance. Ah well.

No idea, but I'm not complaining 8D

Ah, you've misunderstood. When I said "It might be like Aizen's plan to split up the 13 captains by taking 2 with him, and letting 4 chase after Ichigo; leaving fewer captains to fight in the actual war. So if/when he and Aizen go to the Soul King, there'll be fewer guards to fight." everything from "Aizen's plan" to "the actual war" was part of Aizen's plan. I should've said Winter War.
In this case, Juha Bach is Aizen, the Royal Guard are the captains, and Yamamoto is Ichigo. So like how Aizen split up the captains, by letting some of them chase after and save Ichigo, Juha Back might split up the Royal Guard, by letting some of them come and save the Seireitei.

It sounds more like "alright now reinforcements will be sent so let's just wait for them to come".

Well, at least I'm not totally raging over this chapter.
I actually thought Juhabach's script was pretty good for a villian.
I didn't notice that Yamamoto was cut in half when I first read the chapter. o.0
I'm still pissed the with the way Kubo is killing off the good guys...
I was a bit surprised at the mention of Squad 0, at least there's something to look forward to.
And it ends on a cliffhanger...I guess it wouldn't be a proper Bleach chapter if it didn't end on a cliffhanger.
I'm predicting that Ichigo will suddenly appear next chapter, with no explanation as to how until several chapters later.

You're pretty gore. :P

Ah, I see now. XD
What you're implying is that Juhabach is also planning to kill the Spirit King, then.
The whole RG concept though is really huge. I mean, we still have a handful of Captains whose bankai still need to be explained (Unohana, Aizen (probably), Shunsui, Ukitake, Shinji, Rose, Love, Kensei (if at all) and Isshin). Then you have the whole RG member.

No wonder Kubo is killing off old characters left and right. :p

... What?

Eh, let him. We need to see some other characters who still have yet to show their talents. Killing off (or at the very least, decapitating) Byakuya, Renji and a few other old characters pave the way nicely for that.

Really? I was kinda expecting it since Kubo did mention it in the interview :P

Haha, yeah.

Oh, let him be stuck in there for some more time.

The only differences I see are Gomon, time flow and resurrection. Faster time flow would make it a suitable hiding spot :p Resurrection is pretty... worthless? I mean, yeah, you could have fun torturing your enemies I guess but practically, it sort of does nothing.

I guess it's better than suddenly having cancerous cells all over your body :P

Is there a gratuitous violence theme this week in the manga, or is it just me? Bleach had Yamamoto getting bifurcated, dis-armed (or un-handed), and blasted to smitherenes; then Shunsui getting shot, tons of random Shinigami getting eviscerated, and ridiculous amounts of death. Naruto had utter and complete slaughter on a scale we haven't seen to this point, plus what happened to Rin, and massive amounts of gore via Obito-slaughterhouse.

Anyway, a somwhat interesting chapter. Nothing really happened, but the background about Yamamoto is nice, and I liked what Juuha Bach said about him being too weak because he felt the need to protect everything he held dear. It's actually a plot point that I have for my fanfic (which IS coming along, don't worry. It'll just take a while.)

I imagine that the explosion is going to be Ichigo+Friends+Urahara+Mystery Backup (probably other Arrancar, hopefully Grimmjow and others).

Bach wanting to go after Squad 0 is probably because he wants to claim supremacy. Without Squad 0, he probably sees the Royal Guard Spirit King as defenseless.

Also I just noticed the front page had Yama's cut-in-half body.. o.o

And people are speculating that the person (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/bleach/v53/c511/15.html) to the right of Yama is Unohana. Would be sort of cool and weird at the same time if she was indeed one of the ruthless captains at that time :P

And... this:
http://i.imgur.com/jymM8.jpg

Also, a question I've been wondering. For the sake of example, let's say every other Captain come out of the war alive. Who would be the new Head Captain? Either the three senior Captains or maybe a Captain from 0 Division?

Then again, Yama himself founded the Academy and Gotei 13, right?

I started thinking about this after Yamamoto's fight with Aizen, especially since a normal Soul Reaper would have died from using Hadō #96. Ittō Kasō (http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Itt%C5%8D_Kas%C5%8D).
I've actually incorporated my thoughts into my fanfic (that I stopped writing), the Neo-Quincy Arc.
I personally think that Shunsui Kyōraku would become the new Head-Captain, at least as an interim until a new captain for Squad 1 would be picked.
Although, it's also as likely that Unohana would be picked as an interim Head-Captain.
But seeing the mood Kubo is in now, I have completely no idea who might become Head-Captain after this war is over. >.>

If I remember right - Ukitake himself said that no one would be able to fill in the role as well as Yamamoto (at the end of the Winter War). Most likely Shunsui I would think; Unohana has to be a healer, and Ukitake is too ill. I don't really see who else it would be I wonder who could replace Golde, hypothetically

So that explosion was Ichigo!? No. Freaking. Way. I would have never have guessed. The sarcasm was a little heavy there.

Won't happen. Would really destroy all the emotional buildup so far, if it does happen. I mean what he said to Ichigo in this chapter, and all that really sounded like he would die.

Thinking of Akon, and he was referring to breaking Ichigo's jail from the SS side.

Isn't that what -ol mean anyway?

Hm.

And, well, all I can say is "it's Kubo". At this point he could easily bring them back if he wanted - we thought Byakuya, Rukia and Renji all died when they haven't (yet). I'm willing to bet the same for Kenpachi.

Yeah, but the emotional buildup was very intense last chapter. Not the stuff he would do if he wants to bring them back. Case in point, Rukia and Renji (and maybe Kenpachi): there wasn't much of, you know, monologue or dying speech or something to that extent with them.

Last time we saw Gin and Tousen die, both were accompanied by flashbacks and whatnot.

Oh those two. Weren't they with the 13th Division earlier? And from what we know of them, Halshvach or whatever his name is, the effeminate guy was with them the last time we saw the Division. I think we can safely assume they were at the very least wiped out, if not dead.

Don't they do that with their arrows though? So if like in Byakuya's case, where he was killed with his own bankai, would that still count?

There are quite a few times, I think, when Kubo has played with emotional build-up (or even lack thereof). While it was a while ago, I do remember that Ichigo's main battle with Byakuya in the Soul Sociey arc (I think it was his first time going bankai, too?) had quite an emotional build up with Byakuya and his wife. Then, of course, there's Ulquiorra who had no flashback or anything; just a big fight and a chapter or two talking about the existence of the heart (or something like that). To be honest, I think that if Byakuya was to die, killing him that first time would have been perfect. Having him "just barely hold on long enough to talk to Ichigo" kind of... killed the suspense for me.

Pffft that was a waste.

Holy crap.

We are so right. So the Masaki Quincy is back on track? :P

And this officially makes Ichigo every other kind of a spiritual being there is to be. Now I anticipate him to develop hairpin powers like Orihime, and it will be complete.

Still waiting for Unohana to show up.
Masaki being a Quincy, of some kind at one point, would make the most sense...with the plot that Kubo has concocted.
But it would be easier for Kubo just to make Ichigo have chameleon/leech/sponge powers that allows him to take on basic abilities of other groups.

Ichigo hasn't become an Arrancar yet. But he technically can't do that.
He also hasn't become a Togabito.
Bounts and Tojū don't count, since they are non-canon.

That wouldn't sort of make sense. I mean, other abilities he gained so far is because he more or less got exposed to the beings. If that made sense.
What I mean is that, he got shinigami powers from Rukia (and probably it's latent in him since Isshin was a Captain). He got the mask because Byakuya destroyed his Soul Chain or whatever, too lazy to check and he nearly turned into a Hollow. Fullbring is because of his mother being attacked by a Hollow when he was a fetus which is an arsepull but w/e, so you can't suddenly go and have him "Ohai I got your powers because I was friends with Ishida".

I'm looking at the more generic race of "Hollow" (which is dead souls gone sour bad, and Ichigo is (or was) a Hollow.
Togabito are for those who went to Hell, and Ichigo did not. Technically, he's not even dead yet, so yeah. And it's not canon either.

This (http://i2.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/008/301/christian_bale_american_psycho_patrick_bateman_axe _10989289_RE_PwnzElite_has_declared_war_on_Grammar _Nazis-s400x300-173837.jpg). But that's not gonna happen so yeah ^^

...We were right.
I actually can not believe it.
I am just laughing at this point.

"The memories within your reiatsu" - I wonder if this means there's the potential for his Hollow to come back? Or even Mugetsu/FGT.

I quite like the explanation of "Kirge's reiatsu reached the deepest part of your soul and awakened the memories of your reiatsu". Though, as I've said before, foreshadowing and stuff like that would have been really nice.

"I wanted to take you back and reeducate you from the start. [...] I'll drag you back!"
That actually sounds really interesting. So he went to the Soul Society to release Aizen, and get Ichigo; the latter part is to teach him about his mother('s history), and possibly turn him into his pawn (to use against the Royal Guard?).

The "shadow territory"? So there's some kind of... restriction in his movement. And it seems like it's based on time since he says "No way, there should still be..." so it sounds like he wasn't expecting it to happen yet. And we know that they've met before, too. HMMMMM

And his sword broke in half. Again.

"My son born in the darkness"? WELL THAT'S INTERESTING.

Actually kind of a good chapter, I think.

Well, it was all but literally been said that Ichigo's mom was a Quincy....
I just don't like how there was almost no foreshadowing of Misaki being a Quincy for most of the series.
But I guess that's how Kubo rolls, so I'm just gonna go with it. :/
I just hope she wasn't a Quinzi, but that very last panel...

I can't wait for a powered up Uryu to appear, with all or some of the newly revealed Quincy abilities. 8D

But he was a vaizard though. Which is a shinigami with hollow-like abilities, and arrancars were hollows with shinigami-like abilities. So it's similar but not really.
And the other 3 are non-canon so meh.

There you go Arc, Unohana.

Why did Ichigo have such a sorrowful face? I don't know, maybe because HIS LIFE IS A LIE!!!!

Aww dang it, Byakuya is still alive. That's bs, he even gave Ichigo his last will in testament. Now he and Kenpachi are stuck in that stupid soap opera type coma, where they might or might not make it. But guess what? I bet they'll wake at a crucial moment.

Shunsui for Captain Commander 2012.

An ok chapter. Got to assess the damage, but the Byakuya thing ruined it for me.

Hey guys. I'm not dead... no seriously, I'm not. I swear.

Agreeing with Zam on "lack of time" and "not cut out for this college thing".

Sigh... so apparently Emperor ******* is Ichigo's dad. Insert "you're not my real mom" comments here. And "Luke, I am your father!" comments over here.

A small part of me wants to see Ichigo turn to the Quincy side, it'd at least spice up the plot a bit, but that'd be too much of a cliche. Granted, this entire plot twist reeks of it, but still.

On the bright side, it's nice to see Hanataro not being a wimp, and I really loved seeing Soifon blow her top; it's about time something like that happened. Oh, and we get to see something of Unohana, but we need more. Also, am I the only one who thinks Shunsui looks really lame and old with an eyepatch?

Also, how the f*ck is Byakuya still alive? Kenpachi, I can understand; he was pretty much just manhandled, but Byakushi? He got curb-stomped by his own goddamn Bankai and left to bleed out.

ALSO, I've finally hit a breakthrough on my fanfic (the one that's been going on for at least a year, not the concept). Just saying, but it should be up within the next week, for real this time. Maybe even by this weekend if I keep going at my current pace. Be warned, it's also the longest chapter to date. It'll be at least sixteen pages by the time I'm done, likely longer.

Still no answer as to what happened in Hueco Mundo, of course. :/

This was quite an emotional chapter...
Unohana trying to holding her emotions back while Isane is like an overflowing dam.
Ichigo's trying to tone down his self disappointment.
The other captains are beside themselves with grief and anger.

But Kyoraku is stepping up and keeping them in line.
Looks like he's going to act as an interim Head-Captain from now on.

You should have seen the look on my face when I read the title.

Hah, a broken bankai can't return to its original state. Give it a couple of chapters.

I like the explanation of Komamura's link with his bankai; it gives him a little bit more respect, I think, because it shows that the bond between his zanpakutou and him is strong.

Good God Kon... How did he get in?

Finally, Zero Division!!

5 of them? Alright, at least there aren't too many members. Their combined power is greater than that of the Gotei 13, of course. Though this raises a few questions: why now, and not while they were fighting? Who is with the Soul King? And why do they look so underwhelming?

I have a feeling the one on the left is Hikifune (who Urahara replaced), because she gives more of a... motherly feel, than the girl on the right.

I feel bad for Renji and Ikkaku now, they're at a constant handicap. Or handicapable because they still kicked a** after their respective battles.

I chuckled at the dramatic emphasis. Once its broken...IT STAYS BROKEN. Even though he healed...HE WAS NEVER THE SAME.

I thought Komamura was cool before, now I got even more respect for him now.

P-90X + Insanity + Hip Hop Abs + Zumba + Body building = Kon? Dafuq has he been doing? And where do I sign up?

Cool Zero division. I thought there would be more than 5 members. Like at least 7 or something. And none of them look like they're that powerful. Maybe Kubo used up all of the intimidating designs already.

So there you go. Squad 0. Yay.

They sure don't seem fazed by Yama's death, at any rate.

If their total power surpasses the whole Gotei 13, I wonder when/how Unohana will join the fight. Eh.

Oh great. A broken bankai never goes back to its original state. Please don't tell me Ichigo is going to have another new design for a bankai.
Or he might not just join the fight at all after this. Highly improbable, but I'd take my hat off to Kubo if he does that.

Kyoraku is implying that the King now doesn't have any protection. Aizen would find that interesting.

Hm. Apparently it was regarding some troubles in Northern Ireland during the period of late 1960s to 1998; in particular the killing of 2 children during a bombing attack in 1993 I believe. That's as much as I could get from Wikipedia anyway.

Almost halfway through No Shave November. Don't know if I'm going to make it. xO

Cool Zero division. I thought there would be more than 5 members. Like at least 7 or something. And none of them look like they're that powerful. Maybe Kubo used up all of the intimidating designs already.



I haven't shaved due to pure laziness. That's my excuse. :P

I hate Zero squad. All of them. And it takes a lot for me to hate something this bad -.-

I actually liked the Kon part. At first, I was wondering why we were wasting time with it, because I just wanted to see Squad Zero...but now I wish they would've spent more time on Kon.

Chapter



If their total power surpasses the whole Gotei 13, I wonder when/how Unohana will join the fight. Eh.

Oh great. A broken bankai never goes back to its original state. Please don't tell me Ichigo is going to have another new design for a bankai.
Or he might not just join the fight at all after this. Highly improbable, but I'd take my hat off to Kubo if he does that.



Never.

He's going to be just as/even more powerful then he is now. Maybe Kurotsuchi has some kind of secret experiment thing that fixes it. Who know what that guy has hidden.





Go, Rex. Haha. Believe in yourself.
Or rather, don't believe in yourself. Believe in me who believes in you.
Yours is the drill that will pierce the heavens!
God, I miss Super Effective

I can do it! Because my bro believes in me!

Who's Super Effective?

And she and Hikifune were both from the 12th Squad, it seems. Interesting.
Not to mention she has extra arms 8D

Aaaaaaand Unohanaaaaaaaaaa :3
Joining the fight finally 8D I wouldn't mind some background stories of her with the hair dude as well though. Seems like he knows she can fight well. And that guy seems to be her mentor in medics. Really something since Unohana is one of the ancient Captains. Eh.

He made a good point about the Gotei 13 though.

I wonder why Renji and Rukia as well, if they were going to heal them. Weren't those two already stable?
And what about Kenpachi?

Somehow I expected 0 division to be that loud and semi-obnoxious. I like how Senshumaru used her extra arms to play their fan-fair (more on her a few lines later).

So pompadour man was Unohana's mentor, and the fat lady was Shinji's, interesting.

The big dude reminds me of Chang from King of Fighters (http://fenixware.net/fab/images/chars/game/chang1_kof-497.png) But yeah, we get to see the palace, yay!

Is it me or has Soi Fong been a little whiny these last 2 chapters?

And we get a "taste" of 0 squads power, even the captain of the covert ops has a hard time detecting on guy. Pompadour has a point too.

Senshumaru is actually pretty cool. She gots robot arms and floaty bubbles.

Wow pompadour guy is just straight up with Unohana, it's almost kind of mean.

And cue Urahara.




Of course. He's the main character after all -_-

I was wrong, so Mayuri isn't gonna fix it.



What, not who. Haha. It's an online comic. I was referring to this (http://www.vgcats.com/super/?strip_id=20) strip in particular. :p

I don't know if Senshumaru was part of Squad 12 before.
I think she was just the resident tech & security expert before Urahara and Mayuri.
There was no official R&D Squad before Urahara became captain.

He seemed to me more like a former rival of Unohana, than a mentor.

Kubo's signature is cliffhangers. :/

Ooooh looks like tension between that guy and Unohana... Interesting.
I wonder what the Soul King will do to Ichigo.
Also "Stairway to Heaven". I wonder who he listens to.

I do like his explanation for why they didn't save the SS from the Vandenreich; makes at least a bit of sense.

"Shutara Senjumaru." A nice, normal, Japanese name.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand Urahara. What happened with him I wonder. Also it looks like that's how Ichigo's zanpakutou will be healed.



Almost halfway through No Shave November. Don't know if I'm going to make it. xO

I wondered why Kubo wrote Retsu in quotes (at least in the scanlation). Apparently the Hiragana of Retsu also means sorcerer. The Kanji idk though. I wonder in the raw Kubo wrote it in Hiragana or Kanji.

Shame it doesn't get updated often... or anymore, for that matter.

Probably some messing stuff with 12th Squad.

A catgirl dies, ILPy would have said

Mhm.

I guess it would be for another reason as well? But hair man did mention healing. Eh.

You bet 8D It paves way to her joining the fight very nicely.

I hope we get to see that dude do some awesome healing :P

Same thing, same thing
She must have known Mayuri while he was still in the Maggot's Nest, though. Or she could be a newer member than Hikifune. Eh. Idk.

I think they should just give the true meaning, with a slight dialect accent if Kubo wrote that into the character.
But leave the it to the official translators to determine the correct accents for characters later.

The title sounds like a song.

For shame Chad, for shame. Thinking that Ichigo would runaway. He's the main character, of course he's have the courage to fight.

And there ya go, Zangetsu will be fixed. Wonder what the "resembling the original" part means.

Ganju! ahasldkhasfdbdsasb. He looks all sleek and cool and s*it as a "member" of the Xecution.

Welcome to Jurassic Park the Palace! *cue orchestra* (http://youtu.be/oEZh88vz8b8?t=4m19s)

So we got the vizard+ whatever is leftover of ss+ squad zero, Urahara store+ "that guy", Ganju+ the fullbringers and Kon can't forget buff Kon. Ichigo's army is slowly piecing together.

In some odd way he reminds me of Tetsuya Kuroko from Kuroko no Basuke. He's there with no one taking any notice of him at all.

Some elaboration info and tie-ins to previous stuff.

A good amount of humor too. :)
Byakuya floating in the water made me laugh so much.
Ichigo and Rukia's butts in the same panel, oh dear...
Beats and peaches, what a great snack! XD

So Kirinji's healing technique is some special hot spring water, hmm.
It's interesting at the least; those Japanese sure love hot springs.
But I wonder what his Kido based techniques are like.
I also wonder if the hot spring was what Kiriji was referring to earlier, with Unohana.
Hey Arc, you should open up a hot spring like that. ;p

That whole hot spring thing was funny, with the floating and the holding and the peaches, oh you know what I mean.

Not a bad chapter. And not much to say either that Penn-Macdonald fight got me in a sour mood.

HOLY ****! DAT ENDING!

I didn't even see that coming.
The first 2/3 of manga were relatively normal.
Kyoraku is promoted to Head-Captain & Captain of Squad 1.
Ichigo and Renji are all healed up and move onto the next floating city.
Kyoraku takes on two Lieutenants, a little bit surprising
And then....

UNOHANA WAS THE FIRST KENPACHI?! :O
I know it's been said that she's probably the best Captain in Zanjutsu, but dayum.
And Kubo revealed her apparent true name, Yachiru Unohana....
Well I guess we finally know who Zaraki named his Lieutenant after.

If Kubo is going to beef up Kenpachi Zaraki, then he needs to make Lieutenant Yachiru fight seriously too.
After say that to a friend, he showed me this comment on reddit...
"If kubo trolled us when he said we would see yachiru fighting in this arc and he meant only unohana Im going to lose my ****."
Which I totally agree with, but I'm hoping Kubo is playing a little different than normal with this arc.

I think this chapter will be Arc's new favorite chapter...until we see Unohana training Zaraki or fighting herself. XD

So his healing techniques actually decompose those who aren't strong enough, interesting.

And off to the next palace they go! I wonder whats next. Armor? More training?

BUT THAT ENDING THOUGH!
Unohana is the 1st Kenpachi! Who'da thunk! In a way it makes sense, someone who specializes in healing the body, would know the best way to destroy it.

Ya know, I've been liking the manga ever since it started on this Royal Guard saga.
The Quinzi Invasion saga really pissed me off and made me ask wtf a lot.
The current saga so far has had good pacing, interesting characters, good humor, and some nice teases of future events.
If the the rest of the arc is going to be more like the current saga, plot structure wise, then I think Kubo might actually end the series well.

Well, now we know why former Captain Kirio Hikifune is known as the Ruler of Grain.
I wonder how Sanji from One Piece could compare to her cooking. xD
It was funny and neat how she changes form after cooking. ;p
Anyone else notice that Kirio wears Crocs?

So former Captain Flava Flav created the sword form of zanpakutos?
I'm guessing that Ichgio and Renji might go through some special form of Jinzen in the next palace.
It might be wear they will "re-forge" their zanpakuto to make them strong again.
Too bad Ikkaku isn't there with them, if that's what they'll do.

I'll respond to this in my own comments.

Well, that'd definitely make it hard to recognize anybody. Also, he could've been looking forward to super attractive Hikifune. I feel bad for the Shinji.

Yes, the guy who looks to be the hammiest of Zero Squad hams is responsible for, argueably, the most important items in the series.

I concur with your opinions on this arc.

Hikifune is probably better considering she has decades, if not centuries, more cooking skills than Sanji. Though Sanji has the better face swirlies.

I actually think it makes a lot of sense that Ikkaku isn't with them. Ichigo is the main character and Renji need the power up so he doesn't ****ing Job in every single fight this arc.


I quite enjoy the comic relief Kon and the food provided. Nice to see that big body isn't just for further hurting Ichigo.

Well well well. Renji's a ****ing scholar all of the sudden. Good for him.

Kubo really needs to stop being awesome this arc. First badass-eyepatch-Captain-Commander Shunsui, then Kenpachi Yachiru Unohana and now the amazingness that is Kirio Hikifune. In the course of a few pages she manage to go from one of my least favorite Zero Division members (she was above Flava Flav) to my favorite Bleach girl. And those breasts. Holy ****. They just blew Rangiku right out the water. GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEH. Fanboygasm.

Oh. That weird guy who hasn't said a word created the Zanpakuto? Oh that's coo-WAIT WHAT? HOLY ****! THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

I am not dead, not one bit. Just been busy, really busy.
I lurk so much, yet I can't get myself to post *sigh*
We need to bring this place back to life.
How's everyone doing here?

Dem Breasts :3 What is it with Tite and big-breasted women? I mean she has everyone beat.

When did Renji become so smart?

I wish i could go to Hikifune's palace and eat and..

So that's how they'll probably get their zampakuto's back.
Not bad.
Pretty amzing he created the sword forms.

Another good chapter...What happened to the real Tite Kubo?

Well, Nimaiya is just a ridiculous as I thought he would be. XD
But like Kisuke, he seems to have a serious side burried in there too.

The Phoenix Palace is full of beautiful women, why does that not surprise me?
Oh geez, Ichigo is too paranoid. He just need to learn to enjoy view. ;p
But all the girls are Zanpakuto, I wasn't expecting that.
I wonder why they are all in human form, and why there doesn't seem to be any males around.
Maybe Nimaiya likes to manipulate the gender of the Zanpakuto spirits.

Zanpakutos' rage, hmm. I wonder what's lurking in that pit.

UHuh, another good chapter, are we sure we're not dead? Cause Kubo never is this consistent.

Phoenix Palace?
And Hello Ladies! Wouldn't mind going there myself.
They're ALL zampakuto's? Aww.

So we get to see Tensa Zangetsu again?:D
I hope he kick Ichigo's ***.
I wonder if we'll see Karakura Town destroyed this.
Another blade remodelling coming soon then. I hope it's a slimmer shikai.

It's been a merry Christmas indeed.

Mine was meh, Christmas itself was good, got some good stuff. But this Christmas break I gotta switch schools, jobs, and houses, and I got Influenza and I think I ripped a muscle off in my leg. So essentially I've been chair-ridden for several days, But I got a tablet so this helps :P

I'm liking Zero Squad more and more. Phoenix-man (Xineohp)is pretty cool (aside from, of course, being perverted). And they're addressing relationships with zanpakutou in cannon, which I've been waiting for. Ichigo's always seemed a bit distant from Zangetsu. I'm on pins and needles lol.

5th January 2013, 10:00 PM
So, Kusari is on one of those kicks where he overthinks things and makes a totally insane theory. So, here it is.

We'll start with various parts:

1.) People are suggesting that Isshin may not be Ichigo's real father due to Juhabach decalring that Ichi was "[his] son, born in the dark".

2.) It has been said that latent Quincy energy deep within Ichi was awakened which is implied to come from Masaki being a Quincy. (Not fully proven, but we'll be operating on the assumption that it is)

3.) After Kukaku shoots The Tenchuren back to the Palace, she talks with Ganju about their uncle reacting in some way to what was happening recently.

4.) Many times has Ichi been said to be physically similar to Kaien.

5.) The Vandenreich knew of the Ishida and it was recipricol with at least Soken.

6.) Ryuken and Uryu have a very bad relationship.

7.) Urahara and Isshin have a decent friendship.

8.) Isshin has knowledge of the Final Getsuga Tenshou destroying the Shinigami's abilities and implies he may have done it himself.

9.) After Isshin killed arrancar Grand Fisher, Urahara asked how it felt to use his powers after all these years.

10.) Masaki was attacked by a Hollow while pregnant with Ichi (proved by Fullbringers)

And now the theory itself:

To begin, Juhabach was speaking in a figurative way about Ichi being his son and Isshin is the true father of Masaki. Masaki, being a Quincy, was a member of the Vandenreich/its former version and was therefore connected to Juhabach in some way. During a patrol or something rather in the human world Isshin saw her and was like "Damn, gotta get somma dat ***" (yes, he was a stereotypical douchbag at one point). He met her and they started a relationship. After a while he revealed he was a Shinigami and she revealed she was a Quincy. They knew it was forbidden love or some **** like that and abandoned their respective alliances to start a family.

Now, before we continue, we must tackle why I brought up the Shiba clan. Theory is that Isshin is the uncle they spoke of. It (somewhat) explains why Ichigo and Kaien look similar and explains why the Shiba siblings think their uncle would have a reaction to Ichi going with the guard. And with that sorted, we move back to the main stream of crazy.

Now to tie in the Ishida. Ryuken chose to go against his father and join up with the Vandenreich. (When Uryu was born, Soken took the boy from his father and went to live in Karakura town.) During his time in the Vandenreich, Ryuken met Masaki and got all smitten. When the Vandenreich did find out that Masaki was getting it on with a shinigami, they sent Ryuken to kill her but do to the magical Power of Wuv he chose to instead hide the two lovers with his father in Karakura, tell the Vandenreich they were dead and leave the kingdom for Karakura himself. (Together, he and Soken kept the Vandenreich a secret from Uryu.) He and Isshin formed their rivalry at this point over their repective love for Masaki (Ryuken fell into the old "as long as she's happy" and let Isshin have her). And now that's cleared. Continue on.

Thanks to Ruuken leading him to Karakura, he met Urahara and the Vizards. This is how he keeps up with the current happenings.

While Masaki was pregnant with Ichi a Hollow attacked and it was killed by Isshin. This event caused Ichi's Fullbringer-ness.

During the time between Masaki's pregnancies, the Vandenreich caught wind of the Kurosakis location and attack, trying to kill them. Isshin, Masaki and Ryuken went Back-To-Back Badasses and fought them, during which time Isshin used the FGT and Masaki used Letz Stil (she left the Vandenreich before they invented their upgraded version) to win but lost their powers in the process. Powerless, neither could stop Grand Fisher when he struck Masaki down years later.

And then I was done. (•)3 Cyclops kitteh


Also, no manga until the third week of January. :(

Interesting chapter.
So most Zampakuto's are created due to the wielders emotions/strengths/imagination.
That's pretty cool.

I did not like it, one of them has to die.
Harry Potter moment. 'Neither can live while the other survives'Haha.
It.is logical, there can be only 1 Kenpachi, but still, Zaraki dying? Eh.

This may become Arc's all time favorite chapter.
I can imagine how his post will be.

Eh, it's pretty boring..
Can't really hangout with the new lot, all they do to hangout is go clubbing. *sigh*

This chapter is amazing. Amazing.

Unohana took a god damned left turn into insanity. I love it.

And they explained why she wears her hair like that...and where his eye scar came from. Dear god everything is beautiful. Kubo you beautiful bastard.

And the swords make sense. I never would've seen it coming but it makes sense. Untapped potential and all that.

My god. Beautiful.

Sorry for the short reply, a bit busy with schoolwork at the moment

This chapter was full of creepy...
The humanoid forms of the Asauchi, with little mouths instead of eyes, were bad enough.
But then Kubo had to change Unohana's appearance and demeanor too.

It feels like there are still somethings that have yet to be explained about the Asauchi.
But those'll probably be covered in future chapters.
I wonder how Kubo will structure the next few chatpers.
Will he continue this scene split, or focus on one of the two first and then go to the other?

Ah, so that's why Unohana always wore her hair braid in front.
I think the only time were she wore her braid back was in the swimsuit episode. xD
Hmm, some foreshadowing by Kyoraku...
I hope Kubo actually shows the fight between Unohana and Zaraki.


So, Kusari is on one of those kicks where he overthinks things and makes a totally insane theory. So, here it is.

We'll start with various parts:

5.) The Vandenreich knew of the Ishida and it was recipricol with at least Soken.

10.) Masaki was attacked by a Hollow while pregnant with Ichi (proved by Fullbringers)
5) What does that second part mean?

10) Actually, that was never stated, just implied, since Kubo seemed to randomly let Ichigo start using Fullbring. Even Ichigo himself was confused that he could use Fullbring.


To begin, Juhabach was speaking in a figurative way about Ichi being his son and Isshin is the true father of Masaki.

Now to tie in the Ishida. Ryuken chose to go against his father and join up with the Vandenreich.
Lol, whut?

I might believe this more if Ryuken hadn't expressed how much he hates his Quincy powers (despite having such mastery over them).

It's been so quiet lately.

Manga

The way the Asauchi's eye-mouths, cry-drool is pretty trippy.

I guess that shinigami and zanpaktou are supposed to be "one" entity then?


Who knew that letting down ones hair could change their personality.

That whole "sacred" underground battleground thing is pretty awesome, kinda sucks that one of them has to die.

This fight would look some much better in the anime.

Ok guys, two interesting things.

1.) I'm not dead. Shocking, I know. I blame college, Christmas, Bleach being boring, Fairy Tail catching my eye, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for distracting me. That game is still awesome after four and a half years. The final fight between Old Snake and Liquid Ocelot atop Outer Haven still holds up as the best boss-fight I've ever had the pleasure of partaking in, and the storyline is just as gripping and tearjerking as it was the first time through. The soundtrack is beautiful and powerful, and the nine and a half hours of cutscenes play like a movie. No other game could've distracted me quite so badly.

2.) My fanfic's next chapter is finally done. Yes, it took me almost a year, but I promise, it's worth it. Sixteen pages worth of awesome; 7,112 words not even including the recap and author's notes.. In fact, there's so much text that I can't even copy/paste it all in one go; my cursor just gives up on page fourteen and I have to copy what's left on a second run. I'll post it once somebody replies to this so I'm not double-posting. Be warned, preserving the formatting might take a while, but I'll get it out soon, and it is done.

I'm also kinda behind on the current Bleach chapters... haven't been reading much since late November. Meh, MGS is more interesting than Bleach even when the latter was in its heyday.

EDIT: I swear to god if this keeps happening I will change my name to Eon Got Ninja'd. See if I don't.

EDIT 2.0: Also writing an omake, hopefully. If it's not released with this chapter, it will be with the next.

EDIT 3.0: Finally, I have a few profiles of OCs (Rouga's retooled for the fanfic, Seijuro's, Kirio's, and Amara's) and I'm working on more. Arc asked for them a while back, so I'll post the links for what I have with the chapter.

^ Ok smartass. You asked for it.

And after about four hours...


'Narrator':Recap: The final Captain's meeting was held. The five battles were assigned, and information on the Innen Kreis was passed out. Senny ran into Rouga, who introduced him to his siblings and sent them back to the Seireitei. Golde flipped out upon seeing his brother Kirio, but that was nothing compared to the verbal lashing that Kida gave them both in private. After some talk about how the pack was coping under Gintakai (as well as Kida chewing out Kirio for being together with her niece), they parted ways. The chapter ended with the reveal of the Jager's full forces and the decision by Ant to move all forces to the frontlines. Now, the battle is joined, and the war begins in earnest...

Kai: Ok, that was better, but you're still missing out or skipping big chunks of the chapter.

Rouga: Kai? What are you doing here? Where's Ant?

Kai: Oh, him? He's inactive.

Rouga: ...what?

Arc: *walks in, overburdened with paperwork* Oh yeah. Ant, Golde, Dauc, Kida, MC... they're all way less active. Even you haven't been around for a while.

Rouga: ...what?!

Zam: *buried up to his hat in paperwork behind a desk* *muffled talking*

Rouga: Sorry Zam, I can't really understand you.

Zam: *swims his way out of the flood of paper* *GASP* Huff... Rouga, you haven't been around since November. At least Ant and the rest can call in and such, but you just up and vanished.

Rouga: Hello? Rouge wolf? Exiled Shinigami? Criminal and traitor in the eyes of many? I can't exactly keep poking my nose in and not expect it to get shut in the door.

Kai: Excuses, excuses.

Rouga: *gives him the pointer finger* I'm your Captain! Don't take that tone with me!

Kai: "Hello? Rouge wolf? Exiled Shinigami? Criminal and traitor in the eyes of many?" Besides, you've been gone. How are you supposed to be my Captain when you're never here?

Arc: *nodding while balancing paperwork stacks* He's got a point.

Rouga: *sigh* No respect at all. First my summaries, now my absences.

Kai: You talk too much.

Rouga: Stop talking to me like I'm your parent and you're a pissy teenager!

Kai: Oh yeah, and go do your paperwork. I'm gonna go read the new chapter.

Rouga: *sigh* Fine, fine. Ungrateful brat... *opens door to office only to be buried in paperwork* Ack!

Ghost!Seijuro: *fades into view* Sorry folks. He's gonna be a while. In the meantime, I'll take care of the summary... again. *glares at Rouga's twitching body*

Last time on Hunting Death Itself...
The final Captain's Meeting brought all the Captains together for one last discussion before the final showdown with the Jager. Kida, Hayashi, Senshuken, Kai, and Golde were selected to take on the Innen Kreis in light of Rouga's absence. After a short argument about the continued validity of Rouga's intel, the briefing was adjourned with the five Captains selected stayed behind. Senny took a walk to his favorite meditation spot, only to run into Rouga. After some verbal sparring, Rouga revealed that there was a traitor in Squad 7 and that Kai needed to be made aware of this. He also introduced his siblings, Amara and Kirio, Captain-class Fenrir who were intended as reinforcements for the war. Rouga then revealed that he couldn't go back to the Seireitei yet, but affirmed that he would be back and he wouldn't leave the Shinigami alone for the war. Senny brought Amara and Kirio to the Squad 1 barracks at the tail end of the Captain's meeting, causing a quick fight to break out when Golde mistook Rouga's brother Kirio for him. Kida quickly dragged the two Fenrir off to her quarters, and proceeded to interrogate Kirio on why he smelled like her niece, Hitomi. Kirio snapped her out of her rage, which Gintakai was feeding in an attempt to control her. After talking her through her fear, he told her of the going-ons in the pack, few of which were good. Rouga's goal, the Singularity Gate where one can train for a year in an hour at a heavy physical cost, was also discussed, before the former packmates parted ways. The chapter ended with the situation at mission going from bad, to worse, to completely awful, as the Jager revealed that their forces numbered no less than 50,000 foot soldiers. Ant made the only rational decision at that point, bringing all but two-hundred active Shinigami to the frontlines as the only possible method for holding back the massive onslaught. Now, the battle for the balance of the universe begins...
____________________________

Two huge pillars of golden light erupted from the hill where the Captains and their fellow Shinigami had taken positions, bringing Squads 4 and 12 into the fight, which added roughly three-hundred Shinigami to the total forces, now numbering just under 2,800. Seconds later, another, smaller circle flashed to life, and the ex-Captain of Squad 2, Jin Hunter, stepped out into the fight, garbed in all black with only his emerald-green eyes showing.

Golde nodded to the new arrivals. “Glad you made it.” He cast his gaze out to the sea of white-garbed Jäger before them, trying to pick out the individuals most dangerous to them. “What’s the plan, Ant?”

“The Captains, Lieutenants, and any Shinigami with the level of strength of a seated officer need to attack head-on,” Ant replied coolly, drawing his sword. “Squad 4 needs all medics present, so they will not be included. The remainder of Squad 2 will engage in long-range sniping tactics. Squad 7 should also remain fully intact for their charge. We need to force the Jäger’s vanguard into a smaller overall area; that way we can deal maximum damage with our charge, effectively cutting their numbers by at least one-fifth. The rest of our forces should form up into phalanxes and hold the line.” Ant drew in a deep breath. “The five designated Captains should hold off as much as possible until their target is spotted. At that point, it’s a rush to annihilate their target as fast as possible. Captains, remember your callsigns and don’t use your names over the open channel.”

“Why aren’t we engaging in guerilla tactics when we’re outnumbered twenty to one?”

“They’re too close to the Seireitei now. This is where we make our stand; maybe we can manage guerilla tactics once we’ve whittled down their numbers, but not now.”

“Alright, you heard the man,” Dre rumbled over the comms. “Hop to it. Kick ***, take names, etcetera, etcetera.”

“Nah, we need some kinda massive explosion to kick this **** off!” Aozora interjected with a ridiculously bloodthirsty grin.

Kirio laughed. “I’ll do it, then.” He reached for the blades on his back, tossing two identical saw-like blades into the air while joining his main and hollow blades together. The two back blades fell into place behind the v-shaped hollow sword, creating a completed buster-style profile. He hefted the massive sword out the side, his spirit energy glowing neon yellow and covering the blade. “Ryuuseiu!” he roared, swinging the blade once, then a backswing. Three yellow comets of energy discharged each time, all of them plowing into the enemy forces below and killing dozens of them.
“Charge!” Golde roared over the comms, leaping from the hillside directly into the mass of soldiers below.

“CHARGE!” the couple hundred officer-class Shinigami screamed in unison, throwing themselves into the melee and tearing into the opposition.

The rest of the Shinigami combatants vacated the hill, leaving three Captains still present, stoically watching the carnage unfold.

Shadowy tendrils rose from the ground like blackened serpents, grabbing Jäger and choking the life out of them, running them through, or warping them into the path of friendly fire. Bolts of lightning and blasts of flame vaporized enemies left and right, neither source of said attacks visible long enough for the Jäger to strike back in kind.

Ant slipped through the crowded battlefield like a wraith, lightly cutting any Jäger foolish enough to stand in his path with a snow-white scythe. Those afflicted seemed to freeze up, moving in slow motion, only to get cut down like stalks of wheat by the tide of the Shinigami’s offense.

Arc had released his Bankai and was simply letting the water do his work for him, grabbing up Jäger and shredding them with forceful water currents, drowning them, or slicing through their bodies with focused streams. Tsukibana’s water also grabbed and healed any Shinigami who fell within reach, allowing them to continue fighting even longer.

Zameric and Jin stood side-by-side, Zam killing off the Jäger a dozen at a time with his summoned blades, while Jin played defense, blocking attacks aimed at Zameric with his speed and Kidou ability.

Niche was practically invisible as he flitted around the battlefield like a hummingbird, picking off individual targets with his bow, trying not to squander his reiatsu while at the same time remaining effective in combat.

Senny and Kirio guarded each other’s backs, working in tandem much like Zameric and Jin. While Kirio annihilated anything in reach with his buster-style sword and an off-hand blade, Senny took to neutralizing or bogging down the Jäger with his Zanpaktou’s matter-shifting abilities or Kidou and Bakudou spells, giving Kirio ample opportunity to kill them in droves.

Despite the headway the Captain-class fighters were making, the rest of the Shinigami weren’t faring as well. The majority of the Jäger might have been fairly weak, but there were hundreds attacking any single formation, the evening sky nearly blotted out with thousands of spirit arrows.

The lower ranked Shinigami formed up into groups, half raising their Kidou shields and blocking as much as possible, then rotating positions when they winked out to recharge; the other half fired off whatever Kidou or ranged attacks they could at the enemies around them to try and beat them back slightly. The Lieutenants and officers weathered the storm of enemy projectiles, holding their positions and working in tandem as best they could.

“We’re ****ed!” Gosai Tenkyuugi, third seat of Squad 11, shouted over the din of the battle. His eight-hilted glaive spun through the air in front of him, deflecting away projectiles by magnetizing them to be the same polarity as the blade. “We’re so totally ****ed!”
“We’re not ****ed ‘till we’re dead, Gosai!” Luppi, the one-armed Lieutenant of the same squad shouted back. “And Squad 11 grunts don’t die!” She batted away projectiles with tremendous force, somewhat staving off any sort of direct attack, but she knew she’d tire before long.

“An eighth of our squad begs to differ,” Gosai snarled under his breath.

“Less talk, more ***-kick,” Luppi grunted, though she couldn’t really blame him. If there was ever a time for rabid pessimism, it was right now.

Luppi felt a shadow fall over her back and twisted around to find a Jäger officer with a bladed longbow knocked back into firing position, leaving her no time to dodge.

“Hitoshirezu Gengeki,” a cold voice spoke out, before the Jäger was suddenly riddled with throwing knives made of completely clear ice.

Luppi caught sight of a Captain, his black hair turned white as his frozen blue eyes stared at her emotionlessly, his arm still extended from the throw. “Captain Nadare.”

“Don’t let your guard down so easily, Luppi,” Rotrum ordered, flitting back into the battle.

“Thanks, Captain *******,” she muttered under her breath, turning back to the fight in front of her.

“I heard that,” Rotrum’s voice replied, right into her ear, making her jump. “Expect to be oar’d later.”

“Screw you!”

The Squad 10 Captain vanished again, a satisfied smirk on his lips after twitting her like that. Diving back into the bloodshed, he threw and targeted his weapons with expert precision, landing crippling or fatal blows with every toss. Any blades that landed on the ground immediately froze the area around them, trapping nearby Jäger by the legs or slipping them up mid-step.

Amara wove between and around her attackers fluidly, slicing at major arteries to kill or cripple without wasting excessive energy. She spun away from a trio of spirit arrows that just missed her long hair, raising the green-hilted shortsword in her hands. “Croon, Ookamigenka,” she whispered, a forlorn note to her voice, as though praying for mercy on her enemies’ souls.

The blade of her Zanpaktou suddenly vibrated subtly, letting off a quaint, haunting melody that went below the human and Fenrir range of hearing. Only she could truly hear the song of her sword, and only because it wanted her to.

The next Jäger charged her with Zanpaktou raised, but she didn’t even move, letting the blade bypass her before beheading him instantly. She danced into the midst of her foes, dealing death as all attacks seemed to flow around her, letting many Jäger kill their fellows with their subtly misplaced strikes. Throughout it all, she wore the same sorrowful, regretful expression; a dark angel unable to grant peace to the slain.

Kirio ducked under another attacking Jäger, swatting him away with the flat of his blade. The normally non-lethal blow had the force of Kirio’s tremendous power behind it, and still snapped the man’s spine. “Damn it. Möbius Actual!” he shouted over the comms. “If we’re gonna do this, now’s the time! Their forward formation is as compressed as it’s gonna get!”

“Agreed, Wolfman,” the Squad 12 Captain answered mechanically. “Frost 0-7, initiate Protocol: WOLF HUNT. Voice Command Authorization: Storm of Divine Judgement.”

“Acknowledged,” Kai replied, his voice locked down into the flat, icy detachment of the warrior he’d forced himself to become. “The time is now, Squad 7!”

From atop the hill at the very rear of their lines, a low, rumbling roar echoed over the battlefield, slowly growing louder and more deadly as more and more ‘voices’ added to it. Suddenly, a large array of searing white lights snapped on, blinding anyone foolish enough to look at it. With a ripping roar, the mass of black lit with white streamed down the hill, picking up absurd amounts of speed to a rate of nearly four-hundred kilometers per hour.

Only when the shapes dipped into the plain towards the battlefield did their true form become visible. Sleek matte black and brushed chrome mechanics gave them an intimidating profile, with two sets of paired wheels at either end providing the speed and traction for the vehicle. Each rider had their Zanpaktou unsheathed and released, many with two hands, and despite this they still managed to handle their machines perfectly.

The entire forces of Squad 7 now rode the Fenris Hyperbike. It was their trump card, the motorized charge giving them the momentum to rip right through the forces opposing them, and keep moving. This they did with extreme prejudice, driving headlong into the fray. Dozens upon hundreds of Jäger were ripped apart by blasts of Kidou, flashing blades, and elemental attacks. The Shinigami in the middle of the formation used shunpou, flickering out of existence and bodily hauling those who were too slow or too wounded out of the path of the onslaught.

Kai weaved through the throngs of enemies, sword blazing a bloody trail through them all. Ice crystals flew and sliced through throats and innards, dropping many with keening screams of pain.

Sora Kyokumei -the third seat- pulled his bike alongside his Captain and into a wheelie, standing with his feet braced on the exhaust pipes, and began conducting with an ornate silver baton in the shape of a dagger. A haunting melody began to echo, somehow audible even over the din of the motorcycles.

And then the storm began.

Lightning bolts and blades of wind manifested and struck indiscriminately in the midst of the Jäger’s ranks. Howling gales blew enemies off course or flung them under the wheels of passing Fenris bikes, creating unbridled chaos and killing any semblance of organization left in the enemy lines.
Within sixty seconds such continuous assault by the whole of Squad 7, the weakened and confused remains of the entire leading section of the Jäger formation were utterly annihilated. Ten-thousand soldiers down, forty-thousand more to go.

Kai’s Zanpaktou pointed to an area directly in front of him, firing a massive blue wave that slowly grew larger and larger until it became a mountain of ice which he was already halfway up; a ramp with which he’d gain the speed to punch straight through the rest of the enemy lines.

As though sensing his intention, hundreds of hunched, blackened monsters rose from the ground, letting loose guttural roars that shook the very air and made the ice ramp tremble under the wheels of his bike. Chunks of the structure cracked and fell off, crashing to the ground with enough force to kill anyone unlucky enough to be underneath it. Kai’s bike swerved and skidded, the vehicle losing traction and momentum on the bucking surface of the ramp. Kai pressed on, wrestling with the controls using both the handlebars and the hip-mounted steering system to keep it on track. The Fenris cleared the top of the ramp, and Kai slammed his blade into the ice, using his Zanpaktou as a lever to push himself off and onto the downward-facing section of the ramp. The sides of the Fenris shot open, deploying six compartments meant to house blades; Kai stuck his released Shikai into the first one and then slammed them shut. He gunned the throttle, shooting down the ramp with gravity and slippery ice speeding his descent to a ridiculous seven-hundred kilometers per hour.

The second act followed his departure from the ramp instantly, Sora leaping high into the air from the back of his Fenris and conducting at a furious pace, baton a silver blur in front of him.

The first song created a pressure wave, shattering the construct and sending it tumbling down, only for the second to kick up an absolutely massive gust of wind and hurl every last bit of ice into the Jäger’s formation in an avalanche of death. Sora tumbled through the wake of his two attacks, flipping through the air like an acrobat and landing heavily in a crouch on the back of his motorcycle before continuing forward with the rest of the squad.

However, the worst of the attack was yet to come, as Ant leapt into the midst of the storm of ice, slashing each chunk with the ebony scythe in his left hand, then the ivory one in his right. Each part expanded until it was double its former size, then seemed to speed forward and slam into the Jäger lines with several times their original force.

Kai bent low over his bike, flying straight through the mess that was made of the Jäger’s main lines, screaming across the battlefield in pursuit of the energy signature he’d sensed when the creatures were summoned; Randulf von Heidelberg.

A prickle of his danger senses got Kai to glance over his shoulder; fifth seat Jaku Satsujin was roaring up behind him, with his released gunblade pointing behind him, blowing out a jet-like exhaust of flames from the gun portion, and speeding towards him. Then his other hand drew Kai’s attention and the building Kidou spell there drove Kai into action.
He swerved aside just as the Shakkahou blazed past his head, the compartments on the Fenris bursting open and allowing Kai to draw his Zanpaktou again. Jaku pulled alongside the Acting Captain with a sneer, lashing out and forcing Kai to swerve back and forth between swings, blocking any strikes that got too close to him.

“Damn it Jaku, what are you doing?” he shouted over the roar of engines and the klangs of clashing blades.

“You really don’t know?” he taunted. “I’m trying to kill you!”

Kai’s eyes narrowed. So he’s the traitor.

The ice-wielder ducked another swing with a growl, driving the bike out of the way and pulling into a tight turn just as Jaku charged head-on. “Well if that’s what you want,” he snarled. He gunned the throttle, jolting forward and holding his blade up, the pair of riders charging like medieval knights on horseback. Their blades clashed and sparks flew as they spun their machines around for another pass, but Jaku slammed his blade into the ground, letting it rip up the dirt for several feet before using it as a pivot point and throwing his Fenris into the air with his legs, sending the metal projectile straight towards Kai.

Ignoring the feat of inhuman strength that had his jaw threatening to drop, Kai raised his Zanpaktou and hissed out the name of his attack. “Hasakigiri!”

He slashed up just as the motorcycle neared him, a frosted blade neatly bisecting it as he drove under it. Time seemed to slow to a crawl as his eyes met with the leering face of Jaku, who had somehow ended up underneath the destroyed bike, and was now poised to drive his blade straight into Kai’s skull. Kai’s eyes widened as the blade drew slowly but inexorably closer…

“Hadou #1: Shou.”

Suddenly Jaku and his destroyed bike were blasted back by the attack, throwing them to the ground about a dozen feet from Kai as the bike detonated. Kai slammed on the brakes and screeched to a halt, looking back to find his rescuer standing very close to where they’d been fighting. The man was extremely muscular and just below average height, with tanned skin from both a life under the sun and his natural color. Black wraparound shades covered his eyes, and his hair was in a buzz cut and was jet black. His arms were folded across his chest, and the middle finger of his right hand was still extended from casting the spell.

“Captain Blaize,” the man called to him without glancing in his direction. “I’m the fifth seat of Squad 5, Rekkusu Wŭgerén. You go on ahead. I’ll deal with the traitor, like I was assigned to do.”

“Who assigned you to take care of him?” Kai shouted back, suddenly suspicious at his timely arrival.

Rekkusu turned and let the corner of his mouth quirk up before he replied. “Rouga did.”

Kai’s eyes widened momentarily, but then his expression locked down as he nodded and peeled away.

Rekkusu turned his gaze back to the burning wreck of the Fenris that Jaku had been riding. “Get out here, Satsujin,” he stated flatly. “I know that wasn’t enough to kill you; you’re a fire elemental anyway.”

A low growl sounded from the area of the wreckage, and Jaku pushed the flaming remains of the bike off of him, brushing soot from his white hair and glaring at Rekkusu. “Bastard,” he snarled. “I’ll kill you for making a fool of me.”

Rekkusu simply raised an eyebrow calmly. “You’re welcome to try,” he offered, “but unfortunately, you’re not strong enough to follow through.”

Jaku let out a wordless snarl, his reiatsu spiking dangerously as fury fed his powers. “Stop looking down on me!”

“Kinda hard to look down on you when you’re taller than me.”

Jaku blurred forward, slashing downward with his Shikai’s blade, forcing Rekkusu to draw his own Zanpaktou and block. A few seconds later, Rekkusu’s blade creaked audibly, then snapped in half at the point of impact, forcing its wielder to jump back out of the way, just avoiding disembowelment.

Rekkusu looked down to his blade with an expression of mild surprise as Jaku sneered at him. “Still think I can’t follow through?” he taunted the other fifth seat.

Rekkusu let out a brief huff, placing his hand over the broken end of his blade. “Congratulations,” he said tonelessly, “you just broke my sealed blade with an enhanced Shikai attack. You must be very proud of yourself.” He swiped his hand out over the blade, which somehow reformed itself under the motion, then held it up in both hands. “Resign yourself to your fate,” he intoned, his Zanpaktou glowing with a light so intense it seemed almost solid. “My blade fueled by justice will overcome all. Hear our hearts roar as we charge into battle!”

Rekkusu’s blade melded around his arms, sheathing them in light as more trails ran over his chest and back. When the release ended, Rekkusu was revealed to be bearing two massive armored gauntlets, each a light blue color with silver and black tracery adorning them. Four black cords connected to a pair of crests in the form of a radiant black sun on his chest and back. “Kagayaki Kyoujou no Senshi.”

The fifth seat raised his two gauntlets and smashed the fists together, creating a shockwave that blew Jaku back a few steps. Rekkusu met his eyes with a glare hidden behind his sunglasses. “Come on, traitor. Your lies and deception end with me.”

***

Hayashi let out a chuckle at seeing the carnage that had resulted from Squad 7’s charge. “Looks like all that flash-learning paid off. That couldn’t have gone much better, in my opinion.” He was seated on the hill where the Shinigami had started off, one arm propped up lazily on his knee as he watched the battle unfold in front of him.

“It would’ve been better if it hadn’t happened at all,” Kida replied from where she stood, arms folded across her chest. “I don’t mind a good fight, but war is another story.”

“Hn. Fair enough, I guess.”

Senshuken was seated in a meditative pose behind them, his eyes closed as he felt though the thousands of chaotic reiatsu signatures in hopes of picking Noctal Himmeler out of the melee.

Suddenly, a panicked voice broke in over the open channel. “This is Foxtrot 2-1, bearing 0-4-0 at thirty! Is anybody out there?!”

“Copy 2-1,” Senshuken replied authoritatively, not even bothering to open his eyes. “Go ahead.”

“My unit has come under heavy assault from a single Jäger! We have a positive ID on him as Gurim Königswald of the Innen Kreis! Requesting immediate assistance!”

“Understood soldier. Hang in there.” He looked up, turning to Kida. “Gaia Three, this is your show.”

“Roger that,” Kida replied, raising her hand and casting a Kuukanten’i field around herself, letting her vanish in an instant.

***

Kida flashed back into existence at the given coordinates of Foxtrot 2-1’s transmission, arriving just in time to draw her Zanpaktou and block an attack from Gurim Königswald himself. She batted the arrow aside with effortless nonchalance, not even bothering to look. She critically examined the bodies strewn everywhere, and favored the last remaining Shinigami, most likely Foxtrot 2-1 himself, with a nod. He bolted just as Kida turned her gaze to lock eyes with her adversary.

“Kida Ookami, Captain of Squad 3,” he muttered disgustedly. “Just my luck.”

The odd statement puzzled Kida momentarily. “Why is that so bad for you?”

“Because our ‘benefactor’ wants you alive.”

“Oh really,” she replied, eyes narrowing. “And who is this mysterious ‘benefactor’ of yours?”

Gurim laughed, stroking his narrow black goatee. “I’ll tell you if you win.”

“I’m afraid you won’t have that chance,” she told him evenly, “because when you die, it’ll be in an instant.”

“Oh?” he asked snidely, summoning up his black cavalry bow and leveling it towards her. “Let’s test that theory, shall we?”

Kida smirked. “Let’s.” She spun her Zanpaktou in her hands and gave the command. “Hunt, Ryookami!”

***

Senshuken’s eyes snapped open. “Hayashi.”

“You found him?” he asked lazily.

“No. I found your target.”

He turned and raised an eyebrow. “How do you figure?”

“The reiatsu I’m sensing is stronger than the one Kai’s going after, but weaker than both the signature Kida is facing off with and what I’ve sensed from Noctal before. It can’t be anyone else.”

“Good,” he replied, stretching his neck. “Let’s get this over with so I can go take a nap.”

Senshuken shook his head with good-natured exasperation. “Godspeed, Vidar 1-3,” he said, turning his hand to face up. “Kuukanten’i .”

A circle of gold light flashed around Hayashi’s feet one moment, then the next he was gone.

“And now, it’s just us,” a new, horribly familiar voice broke in. Senshuken dove to the right and came up in a roll, drawing his Zanpaktou to clash with the falchion blade of Noctal Himmeler. His black hair hung over his face, obscuring his glowing red eyes, but not the ****-eating smirk his mouth had twisted into. “Long time no see, Captain Toumoku.”

“How the hell did you get here?” he all but growled. “I would have sensed you.”

“My Zanpaktou, of course,” Noctal answered over the grinding of their swords.

“********,” Senshuken said flatly. “When did you have time to release it to plant a shard?”

Noctal chuckled, apparently finding this amusing. “It had already been released. I simply slipped a shard into your sheath when I dodged your attack during our first meeting.”

Senshuken smirked. “Is that so?” He swept his arm out, throwing Noctal backwards, then let loose enough reiatsu for his body to take on a fiery reddish glow. “Thank you… for telling me exactly where to focus my reiatsu to destroy it.”

Noctal scowled, settling his stance. “Don’t get cocky just because you destroyed a single shard.”

“Wouldn’t dream of it,” he deadpanned back, holding his Zanpaktou aloft. “Immolate… Iroriryuu!”

Senshuken’s body literally erupted into fire, the grass at his feet blackening and catching as well just from its proximity to him. Out of the flames, crimson armor with a claymore gripped in his right hand and a dragon’s head cannon wrapped around his left fist slowly came into view. The Captain’s face, though hidden by his battle helmet and mask, twisted into an emotionless expression that was half smile, half grimace. “Game on.”

Both fighters charged forth, leaving sparkling glass and roaring flame in their wake. Senshuken clashed with Noctal at full power, forcing him back across the ground and into the air, pushing him away from the hill and ending up several hundred yards behind it, closer to the Seireitei.
Noctal disengaged and backflipped to avoid Senshuken’s Zanpaktou, landing several feet away with a questioning look on his face. “What was that supposed to accomplish?”

“Shouldn’t it be obvious?” Sen remarked. “Rouga lauded you as a worthy adversary capable of matching his strategy. If such a simple move isn’t obvious to you, I’d doubt it.”

“I’m flattered,” Noctal sneered right back. “I mean, aside from being a warrior of the highest caliber and a strategist capable of putting even the almighty Seireitei on the defensive, being complimented by a geriatric old fool with a hero complex just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.”

“ ‘Arrogance and rudeness are training wheels on the bicycle of life -- for weak people who cannot keep their balance without them,’ ” Senshuken quoted to him.

Noctal scowled, taking a front stance and gripping his falchion blade with both hands. “Cute. As though you’re going to beat me with words alone.”

“I could say the same.” Senshuken slid his foot back and raised his blade, the point facing his opponent and the blade turned up in the classic ko gasumi high cross stance.

The two warriors were stationary for an instant, then the dance began.

***

Hayashi arrived in a flash of light at the far right end of the Shinigami’s formations, coming into view of a lone female Shinigami being pressed by five sword-wielding Jäger. The redheaded woman twisted and turned, fending off attacks one by one with her ebony-bladed Zanpaktou without taking any visible damage, but her gritted teeth and tense posture betrayed her exertion. She parried constantly, stepping in and out of their attacks to the point where she was in the midst of them more often than not, but was immediately cut off by another Jäger whenever she had even the slightest opportunity to strike back at them. As he watched, her flowing movements began to stutter and become more jagged, and she began to stagger more than step amongst her enemies.

Hayashi ambled nonchalantly into the mess, beheading two of the Jäger before they even had a chance to react. He backhanded a third across the jaw with enough force to snap his neck, then kicked a fourth into the path of the last one’s blade. He sidestepped the dying man and drove his Zanpaktou into the heart of his horrified comrade, ending the melee.

“You alright?” he threw over his shoulder to the woman behind him, who had fallen to one knee from exhaustion.

“Yes, Captain Hayashi,” she huffed. “Thank you.”

He grunted and turned away, examining the surrounding area as he flicked the blood from his blade. “Now then… if I were a member of the Innen Kreis, where would I be?”

Due to the fact that his back was turned, he never saw the woman’s face morph into a positively evil smirk, as she raised her sword and charged him, stabbing right for his back…

…only for him to vanish into thin air and appear several feet behind her. “Nice try, but I already knew it was you, Marianne Lindstrom.”

The woman turned with a pouting expression on her face, stabbing her blade point-first into the ground and leaning on it. “How’d you know?” she asked, seeming honestly curious.

Hayashi yawned; he normally hated explaining stuff, but hey, no harm no fowl. “First of all, I know the faces of every Shinigami in the Gotei 13… and I don’t recognize you. Secondly, even though you looked like you’d been fighting seriously you haven’t been sweating; I don’t see it and I don’t smell it either. Thirdly, my spiritual senses are strong enough to tell when your reiatsu is suppressed because it feels like the space around you is emptier than it should be.” He stretched his neck, giving a slight grimace as the vertebrae popped. “And here’s the kicker: you don’t fight like a rank-and-file Shinigami. Seated officers and up have their own fighting styles usually, but the rest of them have one of seven basic styles. You don’t fight using any of them; if anything your style most resembles Tenjin Shinyo-ryu, and I can count the number of Shinigami who use that style on one hand. To top it off, one of them is a Captain, and the other is retired from active duty.

She laughed freely and openly at his reasoning. “Well, I never expected to be figured out so thoroughly. You certainly outperform all expectations, Hayashi Saiga.” She snapped her fingers, letting some sort of cloaking spell fall away to reveal her true form underneath. “I think it’s my lucky day.”

Her outfit was still black, but now her top crossed her torso in a sort of inverted hourglass, leaving her sides and some ample cleavage exposed while covering the rest of her. Her legs were covered by a long black dress that had a slit up the left leg to allow freedom of movement, while an equally long black cloak hung from her shoulders. Her skin was ridiculously pale, almost to the extent that it seemed grey, and it contrasted sharply with her fiery orange hair and neon yellow eyes. As if that wasn’t enough, her incisors were slightly sharper and longer than normal, making them very noticeable in her smirk.

Hayashi just stared openly at her chest for a moment before replying. “I’d say that it’s my lucky day too, but probably for a totally different reason than you.”

She scowled in a way that made her seem pouty. “Pervert.”

Hayashi scoffed in return. “You can’t dress like that and not expect to have men -and women- ogling you.”

“That doesn’t make you any less of a pervert.”

“I’m not a pervert. I just have an appreciation for the female figure and a pure, unadulterated love of the ladies.”

“So in other words, you’re a closet pervert?”

“…I don’t like closets.”

“…”

“…”

“Oookay then… are we going to fight any time soon?”

“…yeah, sure. Let’s get this over with.”

***

Just as night swept over the battlefield, a golden burst of light soared skyward, exploding in a shower of illumination over the edge of the forest on the far end of the Jäger lines.

“Gold 1-Actual, that’s all you!” Niche shouted over the comms. “Good luck, sir!”

“Copy that, Archer Two,” Golde replied. “Keep up the pressure.”

The Head Captain sped forward and slipped right through the whirling battle, dodging left and right, still lashing out with his spear and with bolts of lightning whenever he could to carve gaps in the enemy formations. All the while, he sprinted into the woods, sidestepping tree trunks with a grace that belied his large frame until he broke through to the other end.

Zeruda Harkinian stood before him, Kurai Enzeru’s stolen rapier glinting in her right hand, while a deactivated Seeleschnider sat in her left. She’d garbed herself in a slightly longer skirt this time, and her white corset top was devoid of any fashionable touches; combined with white high-heeled boots and her long white gloves, she seemed ready for battle.

“Head Captain Golde Okashi,” she said, a small but highly malevolent smirk twisting her lips. “To think that you would come to face me alone. Is it ignorance or pride that drives you to such… desperate actions?” She didn’t wait for a reply before continuing. “Tell me, where is Rouga Kouken?”

“Fashionably late, as usual,” Golde replied, hefting his gilded spear. “Fortunately, I’m here to keep you entertained for the time being.”

“Lovely,” Zeruda deadpanned back, lifting her Zanpaktou delicately. “Grasp, shred, and slice, Taka no Tsume.”

***

This is what it feels like to be Golde Okashi, Head Captain of the Gotei 13, right now:

You’ve seen the recordings. You’ve heard Rouga’s account of her powers. You’ve heard Ant’s analysis of her abilities. You’ve even delved into the archives to learn all the Quincy techniques. But now that you stand here, face to face with Seijuro’s murderer…

…you realize just how utterly screwed you are.

Her power washes over you in waves; even with nothing more than a stolen Shikai and a regular Seeleschneider as her weapons of choice, the force of her reiatsu is tremendous. This isn’t even what Seijuro faced, and you can already tell that she’s nearly at your level in Shikai. Her Vereinigung is likely to require your Bankai just to match, and god only knows what her final form is capable of. You certainly don’t.

You know that you are tired. The position of Head Captain is never easy. Sleepless nights, skipping or only partially eating meals, countless nagging injuries, and too much time behind a desk have dulled your edge. You’re not as young as you used to be either. Not for the first time, you curse Fenrir and their decelerated aging; your four hundred year-old body is already starting to wear itself out. Rouga is nearly twice your age, and he’s still going strong.

You know that if this becomes a battle of attrition, you will lose in a spectacular fashion. She’s got an entire level of power that you lack up her sleeve, and she’s well rested and ready to fight. You have no advantages here.

You just… don’t… have it. You know that this battle was lost before it even began. It was lost before you were even born.

You meet her cold green eyes and glare at the bronze and emerald diadem on her head and you realize…

…every moment spent working towards this battle was a terrific waste of time.

With a sigh, you heft the lance that is your partner’s Shikai form, and speak four words that carry a lifetime of regrets and the power of an army.

They are your only chance at surviving this fight. A prayer and command all in one.

“Ban-kai. Hakaisha Harangumo Zachiru.”

And the world comes alight with power.

***

Kai could feel the darkness seeping out of the massive clearing in front of him. In hindsight, he was amazed he’d missed it; the whole area felt like it was being smothered under a wet blanket and the light of the setting sun seemed to dim as the shadows lengthened. He knew it in his very bones.

His enemy was just ahead.

He stopped the Fenris hyperbike a ways back into the widely spaced trees; he liked the bike, and wasn’t about to have it destroyed so soon after getting it for himself.

As he stepped into the clearing, he saw a man seated at the opposite end of it. His pale skin and short red hair stood out like a beacon in the darkness, and his glowing orange eyes were round and exceedingly creepy looking. He moved forward a few paces, his Zanpaktou held out to the side and ready to strike…

…then a Shadow Beast leapt at him from the trees.

Kai pivoted, slashing up with Koorimizu and carving a large rent in the monster’s rune-covered chest. He sensed another dark presence flitting around in the trees and whipped out his blade again with a cry of “Kouu Hyoushou!”

The evening sky suddenly grew darker as clouds formed over the area and rain started to fall. Kai twitched his blade and the droplets that flicked from the metal froze over into tiny blades of ice. Another swing, and the shards decimated a few trees right in front of him, slicing the Shadow Beast taking refuge behind it into pieces.

A roar sounded then, and Kai whirled to find a third Shadow Beast skulking on the edge of the clearing. He gritted his teeth, gaze flitting to confirm that the other two were getting up as his re-sealed his Zanpaktou to conserve some of his energy. This is going to be tricky.

He bolted for the Shadow Beast in front of him, ducking under a clumsy swipe of its hand and jabbing two fingers into its chest. “Hadou #4: Byakurai!” he shouted, a thin beam of electrical energy piercing straight through the monster’s hide and out its back. He turned and shot back towards the other two, rolling just before he came to them and popping up behind the one on his right. “Hadou #32: Oukasen,” he muttered this time, letting a yellow ball of reiryoku slam into the creature’s unprotected back. The last Shadow Beast threw its head back to howl, but cut off in a muted gurgle of agony when Kai rammed Koorimizu through its throat.

“Splendid,” a rasping voice chuckled as Kai turned away from his kills. The man with the glowing eyes was rocking back and forth, cackling manically. “Absolutely marvelous. You’ve grown so strong, and in only a month! Truly, you’re worthy of your title as Captain now, Kai Blaize.”

“Save your breath, Randulf von Heidelberg,” Kai muttered, flicking the rainwater from his blade. “I’m only Acting Captain. Once Rouga comes back, it’s all his. I don’t want to be a Captain just because my superiors bit the dust.”

“Then what do you want?” Kai’s gaze snapped up and their eyes met across the clearing. “Are you so tired of being a pawn of the Soul Society? Tired of getting dragged through the mud by your superiors? I don’t blame you. Aside from the inner circle of Captains, the Shinigami have no real power, no real say in anything. The higher-up condone murder and genocide, and you have no choice but to follow in their wake. Don’t you just want to be free of such… evil intentions?”

“Again, save your breath,” Kai shot back, his bearing going from calm and detached to downright frigid and angry. “Your evil is not mine, Jäger. I lost a mentor, and friend, and a brother in everything but blood to your evil.” His lips twisted into a dark facsimile of his normal grin. “But still, I guess I should thank you. You Jäger taught me how to hate. How to feel bloodlust. How to want to murder someone in cold blood with as much pain and torture as possible. It’s all thanks to you and your kind that I can kill you today.”

“Oh, really?” Randulf remarked offhandedly, sounding as interested in this as he was with watching paint dry. “I’d love to see you try.”

Kai’s grin turned downright nasty. “I aim to please,” he snarled gleefully. “Now… freeze over, Koorimizu!”

***

“This is November 5-7, engaging along enemy’s left flank.”

“Fireteam Zulu here, under heavy enemy pressure in the southwest quadrant. Request backup, over.”

“This is Romeo 1-4 to Highground, calling in priority target. Coordinates Zero-Tango-Two-Zero-Zero-Five; full package on rapid delivery.”

“Sniper Team Bravo; target sighted. Fire for effect.”

“Roger that Romeo, full package incoming; target number Zero-Tango-Two-Zero-Zero-Five, out.”

“Fireteam Zulu, request denied. Fall back and regroup at Rally Point Lima.”

“Sniper Team Bravo; target down. Shifting positions.”

“Möbius Actual, we’re being overrun on the left flank, we need to reinforce –hck…”

“****! Möbius Actual, we just lost Fifth Seat Ouja! We’re being overrun, badly! Get us help, goddamn it!”

“Understood,” Ant replied to the last transmission, breaking through the dozens of others. “Wolfman, Shifter 0-8, move to reinforce left flank ASAP.”

“Acknowledged!” Kirio growled testily, a meaty thwack following the words as he killed another hapless enemy. "Shifter, pack up and move!”

“On it,” Senny shot back.

Ant withheld a strained sigh as he surveyed the battlefield before him from his location atop the central hill. He’d moved back to get a good handle on the overall situation now that the initial blitz was over, but it was quickly becoming apparent how outmatched they were. Roughly 17.5-to-1 odds did not a winning formula beget. At this point, only their group cohesion, their constant communication (and thus, constantly updated intel on the battlefield situation), and the power of their Captains were holding their enemies back from bulldozing them completely. Their losses were piling up. Sooner or later, the Jäger were going to gain the upper hand; the only question was whether they were going to find some weak point and break through the Shinigami lines, or just grind them into dust with overwhelming offensive pressure.

Ant sighed. He hated thinking in defeatist terms, but it might actually come to Plan C; Protocol: PATRIOT, the last ditch attempt at a pyrrhic victory, which would involve all the Captains throwing their full powers into the Jäger lines as the rest of the Shinigami retreated. It was suicidal, it was cruel, and it would be the Seireitei’s best hope of survival if it came to that. As it was, Plan A had already been exhausted with only one-fifth of the Jäger’s forces eliminated, and Plan B -Protocol: FOXHOUND- was already in effect. It all hinged on the five Captain vs. Innen Kreis matchups; drawing out each target, engaging them, and defeating at least four out of the five. If even two of the Captains were defeated, the entire plan was shot; they’d never manage to hold them back enough with the Innen Kreis members supporting the offensive.

This battle was becoming a hellhole, and fast.

“If this continues as it has, we will all die,” Ant murmured flatly. “Rouga, hurry up and get here. We could use any help you can give right now.”

OFcourse, Zaraki was a freak since he was a child. Explains A LOT.
I swear his face scares me. Those sadistic eyes.
And Zaraki is still the stronger when, just when I predicted he was to die. But he's still getting his *** kicked.. as a benefit.
Gotta wonder, how much reiatsu has this guy in store..

You just made the scene before the chapter, a while ago. Didn't you. Bashing me away. Pfft. I'll get my revenge..

What would really, REALLY help me, is a list of characters involved, and who's who ._. Because at one point, I got lost. And I can't find the time to look for the previous chapters..

I'm getting so much screen time :3
I wonder if you had me mastered my Bankai there.

Phalanx formation.. reminded me of 300...

Love the walkie-talkie/radio code-names.

Fenris. I'm having a hard time.. imagining myself wearing shinigami robes and riding a dirt bike. Why is there a dirt bike in the Seireitei in the first place? But it'd be sweet riding one to battle.

Seijuro's supposed to be resurrected, or something.. Right?

'benefactor' who's that supposed to be? :/

Golde's thoughts after Zeruda released her shikai/bankai, was such an Ichigo moment :3
Cheesy, yet so empowering. Releases bankai and kicks ***.

Some-what review, because it's 7:00. Skype'd the whole night, and I have to run for my class.

Hope everybody comes back.

I really like this chapter. This is Kubo at some of his finest, imo.
Unohana reveals through an inner monologue that even thought she's infamously the the strongest Kenpachi, Zaraki is still stronger than her.
Kubo also tied it in nicely with previous parts of the the manga.
Zaraki seems at first glance to just be a simple, battle loving brute, but in reality he's a deeper character than that.

Zaraki's odd visions from the previous chapter are explained.
Unoahana is killing him and then reviving him, which explains Zaraki's lose of consciousness.
Each time he's revived, Zaraki is getting a bit stronger and more deadly.
I wonder if Kyoraku knew that this is what Unohana was going to do...

The revelation about Kenpachi's true strength kind of reminds me Orihime and Ulquiorra.
Please keep up the good work Kubo!

I like Pokemon (...)

*Insert dramatic return here*
Yeah I'll try and be more active... again... And I may or may not read up all the posts I've missed. Depends on how bored I am.
(Also I've moved from MSN to skype so if anyone wants that yeah).
I liked the manga - glad to see Unohana and Zaraki fight, since they're some of the strongest characters. Though if Zaraki always weakens himself, what does that mean about his fight against Juha Bach?




EDIT:

Oh **** Eon's chapter is here.

**** I’m going to have to review this thing.

I promise no quality. I have not reviewed in months.

I like the omake; actually pretty funny. Though you say “rouge” instead of “rogue” :p

Funny, I’m reading the first paragraph and I’m actually analysing more deeply than I thought I would… “golden light” suggests hope; “garbed in black” being the first description of Jin really helps make him more mysterious and ninja-y, and the emerald eyes show that he’s emotionally strong, since the eyes are the window to the soul and whatnot. 99% of that is ********, but hey it’s great food for thought.

I like Dre’s comment “kick ***, take names, etcetera, etcetera.” I think it shows his personality quite nicely, while still showing that he understands how serious this is.

And of course, Blue’s comment is perfectly fitting.

“Charge!” Golde roared over the comms, leaping from the hillside directly into the mass of soldiers below.
Personally, I think it would be nicer if “Charge!” Golde roared. was its own line/paragraph. I feel that would have a bigger impact as the beginning of the battle. So perhaps get rid of “Golde roared over the comms”, so that you could have “He leapt from the hillside…” to start the next line without it sounding awkward. The rest would follow as normal.

I like how you have a small paragraph for the captains that are fighting on the field, it’s quite nice. Especially with how each start with their names.
Love the comparison of Niche as a hummingbird.

“The majority of the Jäger might have been fairly weak, but there were hundreds attacking any single formation, the evening sky nearly blotted out with thousands of spirit arrows.” – I feel like this should be two separate sentences, with the first describing the number/size of the Jager, and the second focusing on the scenery, with a nice description.

Nice cameo of RG and Luppi.
I was literally just wondering where Rotrum was. Haha I love their interaction, very entertaining.

“The next Jäger charged her with Zanpaktou raised, but she didn’t even move, letting the blade bypass her before beheading him instantly. She danced into the midst of her foes, dealing death as all attacks seemed to flow around her, letting many Jäger kill their fellows with their subtly misplaced strikes. Throughout it all, she wore the same sorrowful, regretful expression; a dark angel unable to grant peace to the slain.” That was a really beautiful description, I love this paragraph.

“Mobius Actual” hahaha I love that! Very fitting.

…Bikes. Sword fights on motorcycles?

Woo, awesome, looks like the 1/5th prediction was spot on.

Really like the teamwork between Sora and Kai.

Jaku… Wait... really, you’ve made him the traitor? That’s actually quite funny and actually I should’ve been able to predict that haha.

I like how Hadou #1 was used. Sometimes it feels like you only need to use high-level kidou for it to be useful… but the use of a low-level kidou spell, but used intelligently, is really effective here.

“Kinda hard to look down on you when you’re taller than me.” – love that

Kida, Hayashi and Senshuken… God I can’t wait for their fights.

Foxtrot 2-1? I’m not too sure… my first thought is that Foxtrot is the NATO letter for F, so I think of Flash_Step… though I’m probably wrong. Gaia makes sense for Kida. Then again, later on you said “most likely Foxtrot 2-1 himself” so it doesn’t sound like a captain or lieutenant.

Vidar? Not heard of that before. Google leads me to Wikipedia, which leads me to Norse mythology; a son of Odin; foretold to “avenge his father’s death by killing the wolf Fenrir at Ragnarok, a conflict which he is described as surviving.” For that, I take my hat off to you, Eon, and your writing skills. The choice of his name is perfectly fitting for the story, I think. (Also, Vidar 1-3; 1-3 obviously means 13, as he’s Captain no. 13. What this means for 2-1 however…).

OOOOOOH HIMMELER IS THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE

(also “sh!t eating smirk” is censored)

“he all but growled.” Personally, I don’t like it when people use “all but”. Because it sounds like he did everything EXCEPT growled (or as implied, he “almost growled”), whereas I think common usage makes it identical to “he growled”. Unless you actually do mean the literal “he almost growled”, in which case, ignore me.

“When did you release?” “I was already released” WHY DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR HMMMM

““I mean, aside from being a warrior of the highest caliber and a strategist capable of putting even the almighty Seireitei on the defensive…” I can see MC’s blush from over here.

I love that scene when she revealed herself, and tried to stab him. Perfectly animated in my head.
And I LOVE his explanation… Hayashi is slowly becoming one of my favourite characters. Your description of “brilliant but lazy” is just absolutely perfect.
Hahaha okay scratch that, he IS my favourite character.

“Gold 1-Actual” I WONDER WHO THAT COULD BE
“Archer 2” – fitting

“This is what it feels like to be Golde Okashi, Head Captain of the Gotei 13, right now:
You’ve seen the recordings. You’ve heard Rouga’s account of her powers. You’ve heard Ant’s analysis of her abilities. You’ve even delved into the archives to learn all the Quincy techniques. But now that you stand here, face to face with Seijuro’s murderer…
…you realize just how utterly screwed you are.” Love this
Hell I really love that entire chunk. The way it was written was simplistic but effective; the change in tense to second-person-singular is powerful, and just… amazing.

I like Randulf’s description of how the captains have power, and everyone else kind of just… has to follow them. Because he is exactly correct.

Senny = Shifter; of course, since his zanpakutou allows matter to shift between states.

And… final summary. Definitely not looking good for the shinigami. Obviously, Rouga will come in and defeat Zeruda, since he is literally the only person capable of doing it. I think either 4 Captains win (can’t say for certain who’ll die), or MAYBE only 3; in which case it’ll be a fight to the skin of the teeth. I have a feeling though… if you really wanted a killer ending, they’d have to go with Plan C. That’d be sad. Times like this made me wish I still had my black hole attack.


IT'S SOMETHING RIGHT

Eon Master
1st February 2013, 2:59 AM
EDIT:

Oh **** Eon's chapter is here.

**** I’m going to have to review this thing.

I just started laughing so hard when I read this.



I promise no quality. I have not reviewed in months.

Tbh, this is one of your better reviews...


I like the omake; actually pretty funny. Though you say “rouge” instead of “rogue” :p

Lack of spell check. I typed that entire thing in the window within about fifteen minutes.


Funny, I’m reading the first paragraph and I’m actually analysing more deeply than I thought I would… “golden light” suggests hope; “garbed in black” being the first description of Jin really helps make him more mysterious and ninja-y, and the emerald eyes show that he’s emotionally strong, since the eyes are the window to the soul and whatnot. 99% of that is ********, but hey it’s great food for thought.

Wow. You pick up on my intentional color-coding and then dismiss it. Good job! ;]


I like Dre’s comment “kick ***, take names, etcetera, etcetera.” I think it shows his personality quite nicely, while still showing that he understands how serious this is.

I thought so too. It sounds like what he'd say in that kind of situation.


And of course, Blue’s comment is perfectly fitting.

It's Blue. Just go with killing, swearing, explosions, and manic laughter. You'll always be somewhat close.


“Charge!” Golde roared over the comms, leaping from the hillside directly into the mass of soldiers below.
Personally, I think it would be nicer if “Charge!” Golde roared. was its own line/paragraph. I feel that would have a bigger impact as the beginning of the battle. So perhaps get rid of “Golde roared over the comms”, so that you could have “He leapt from the hillside…” to start the next line without it sounding awkward. The rest would follow as normal.

I suppose. I don't like the fact that it wouldn't be over the comms because he'd have to SCREAM IT LOUD ENOUGH FOR THE ENTIRE BATTLEFIELD TO HEAR if he doesn't use them.


I like how you have a small paragraph for the captains that are fighting on the field, it’s quite nice. Especially with how each start with their names.

Eh, it was just the best way to showcase everybody and not waste space.


Love the comparison of Niche as a hummingbird.

Eheheh... I blame Siska.


“The majority of the Jäger might have been fairly weak, but there were hundreds attacking any single formation, the evening sky nearly blotted out with thousands of spirit arrows.” – I feel like this should be two separate sentences, with the first describing the number/size of the Jager, and the second focusing on the scenery, with a nice description.

Possibly. I could rewrite it, but I'm lazy and busy.


Nice cameo of RG and Luppi.
I was literally just wondering where Rotrum was. Haha I love their interaction, very entertaining.

Haha, glad to be of service.


“The next Jäger charged her with Zanpaktou raised, but she didn’t even move, letting the blade bypass her before beheading him instantly. She danced into the midst of her foes, dealing death as all attacks seemed to flow around her, letting many Jäger kill their fellows with their subtly misplaced strikes. Throughout it all, she wore the same sorrowful, regretful expression; a dark angel unable to grant peace to the slain.” That was a really beautiful description, I love this paragraph.

I thought it was a good way to show off her Zanpaktou, her personality, and her mentality in battle all at once.


“Mobius Actual” hahaha I love that! Very fitting.

All of us have very fitting codenames; yours was actually the easiest to pick.


…Bikes. Sword fights on motorcycles?

I blame Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete (wherein half of Cloud's fights take place with both parties driving motorcycles; not coincidentally, the Fenris Hyperbike is based off Cloud's motorcycle, Fenrir) and Metal Gear Solid 3/4, where there are motorcycle chase scenes backed by epic music.

Aside from that, it's the most efficient way to bring in a cavalry charge and still have the speed that Kai/others need to get to specific fights.


Woo, awesome, looks like the 1/5th prediction was spot on.

It was your prediction. Of course it was.


Really like the teamwork between Sora and Kai.

Sora = Soroft, btw. And yeah, those two make an awesome team because they can both manipulate/control weather.


Jaku… Wait... really, you’ve made him the traitor? That’s actually quite funny and actually I should’ve been able to predict that haha.

Actually, I'm amazed that you didn't.


I like how Hadou #1 was used. Sometimes it feels like you only need to use high-level kidou for it to be useful… but the use of a low-level kidou spell, but used intelligently, is really effective here.

Please tell MC this. Or I'll be forced to beat his barrage of six #80 and up Kidou spells with two spells under #10... again.


“Kinda hard to look down on you when you’re taller than me.” – love that

Kinda just came to me when I realized that Rex is average height while Jaku is supposed to be like, 6'5".


Kida, Hayashi and Senshuken… God I can’t wait for their fights.

I promise, they'll be more epic than anything I've done so far.


Foxtrot 2-1? I’m not too sure… my first thought is that Foxtrot is the NATO letter for F, so I think of Flash_Step… though I’m probably wrong. Gaia makes sense for Kida. Then again, later on you said “most likely Foxtrot 2-1 himself” so it doesn’t sound like a captain or lieutenant.

Ok, no. See, the NATO letters are for each undersized section / oversized fireteam, of which there are roughly 26 per Squad. The first number refers to the Squad, so in this case, they would be Squad 2 members. The second number refers to the order of command within that fireteam / section. Therefore, Foxtrot 2-1 is the commander of Foxtrot section in Squad 2.


Vidar? Not heard of that before. Google leads me to Wikipedia, which leads me to Norse mythology; a son of Odin; foretold to “avenge his father’s death by killing the wolf Fenrir at Ragnarok, a conflict which he is described as surviving.” For that, I take my hat off to you, Eon, and your writing skills. The choice of his name is perfectly fitting for the story, I think. (Also, Vidar 1-3; 1-3 obviously means 13, as he’s Captain no. 13. What this means for 2-1 however…).

Haha, I'm glad somebody picked up on that. Vidar is also the Norse god that most exemplifies kusari (according to him), so it was a win-win either way.

Also, the Captains' callsigns are intentionally screwy because it helps them blend into the rest of the troops while any enemies who hear them are wondering "who or what the hell is going to attack us next?".


OOOOOOH HIMMELER IS THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE

*cue dramatic music*


(also “sh!t eating smirk” is censored)

Blithering fudge monkeys.


“he all but growled.” Personally, I don’t like it when people use “all but”. Because it sounds like he did everything EXCEPT growled (or as implied, he “almost growled”), whereas I think common usage makes it identical to “he growled”. Unless you actually do mean the literal “he almost growled”, in which case, ignore me.


I did, in fact mean, "his voice came extremely close to a growl". Fenrir are the main growlers in my stories. Non-Fenrir don't generally growl unless they are extremely ticked off.


“When did you release?” “I was already released” WHY DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR HMMMM

Maybe you're "imagining" it ;D


““I mean, aside from being a warrior of the highest caliber and a strategist capable of putting even the almighty Seireitei on the defensive…” I can see MC’s blush from over here.

Somebody should show the quote he replies with to Dauc.


I love that scene when she revealed herself, and tried to stab him. Perfectly animated in my head.

Good. I was hoping for that.


And I LOVE his explanation… Hayashi is slowly becoming one of my favourite characters. Your description of “brilliant but lazy” is just absolutely perfect.

Hayashi is lazy because NOTHING is difficult for him. So he just doesn't care. At all.


Hahaha okay scratch that, he IS my favourite character.

"...I don't like closets." I don't know where the hell that came from, but it's funny as all get-out.


“Gold 1-Actual” I WONDER WHO THAT COULD BE

...*raises hand* I know...


“Archer 2” – fitting

Lame, but it was pretty short notice and I was trying for some commonality next to the extravagance of Mobius Actual, Vidar 1-3, and Gaia Three.


“This is what it feels like to be Golde Okashi, Head Captain of the Gotei 13, right now:
You’ve seen the recordings. You’ve heard Rouga’s account of her powers. You’ve heard Ant’s analysis of her abilities. You’ve even delved into the archives to learn all the Quincy techniques. But now that you stand here, face to face with Seijuro’s murderer…
…you realize just how utterly screwed you are.” Love this
Hell I really love that entire chunk. The way it was written was simplistic but effective; the change in tense to second-person-singular is powerful, and just… amazing.

That was actually an experimental passage, and I wasn't sure how well it would go over. I'm glad you liked it so much.


I like Randulf’s description of how the captains have power, and everyone else kind of just… has to follow them. Because he is exactly correct.

Exactly. Really, the Lieutenants are the only non-Captains with any semblance of power, because they're next in line to be Captains and take charge of the day-to-day operations in the Squad.


Senny = Shifter; of course, since his zanpakutou allows matter to shift between states.

Quite.


And… final summary. Definitely not looking good for the shinigami.

Definite understatement.


Obviously, Rouga will come in and defeat Zeruda, since he is literally the only person capable of doing it.

Actually, there is one other person who could do it. And no, it isn't Golde. Frankly, the only reason Rouga is doing it is because he actually has a reason to fight her.


I think either 4 Captains win (can’t say for certain who’ll die), or MAYBE only 3; in which case it’ll be a fight to the skin of the teeth. I have a feeling though… if you really wanted a killer ending, they’d have to go with Plan C. That’d be sad. Times like this made me wish I still had my black hole attack.

I will tell you this right now: You will never see the loss coming.

Also, I do not subscribe to the principle of "My Kung-Fu is Better than Yours". Take that for what you will.

Actually, this was a damn good review.


I'll get to yours later, Kai. I'm a little pressed for time lately. Maybe I'll just PM you my reply or something.

Look who's ba-

Oh ILPy already pulled it.
Yeah, been inactive. I blame ILPy. He's contagious, even with the North Atlantic Ocean between us.



Zaraki seems at first glance to just be a simple, battle loving brute, but in reality he's a deeper character than that.

Zaraki's odd visions from the previous chapter are explained.
Unoahana is killing him and then reviving him, which explains Zaraki's lose of consciousness.
Each time he's revived, Zaraki is getting a bit stronger and more deadly.
I wonder if Kyoraku knew that this is what Unohana was going to do...

The revelation about Kenpachi's true strength kind of reminds me Orihime and Ulquiorra.
Please keep up the good work Kubo!

idk if I'm liking where this is going, tbh...
This "I'm actually stronger, but I've been weakened" has been pulled so many times already. I guess that's Kubo arsepull signature move.
I'm hoping Kubo is not serious on letting either one of them die, because if he is, it'll be Unohana. T_T

I mean, last panel doesn't look so fun to me. =|
If she gets killed just to make Zaraki stronger, I swear I'd Tsukibana Kubo's *insert censored word here*

Aaaand what, she saw that her act of placing a 'shackle' on Zaraki as a sin, so she became a medic instead? Yeah right.
I wonder what pushed her to be a medic instead of, you know, continuing being a badass.

Still, enjoying the moment for now. UNOHANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA 8D
Sorry.


*Insert dramatic return here*

Oh hai there

Eh, Eon is back :D
I'll read the chapter... sometime. Week 8 is killing me. Python is killing me. Again. D8
Oh well.

And I saw the name Golde in one of the books I'm reading for my class. 8D He was a... doctor.

See you guys some time later. If at all.

1st February 2013, 3:48 PM
I just started laughing so hard when I read this.
Not my fault that your fics are so long and difficult to keep up with :p Though this time, it wasn't so bad. I figure that's because it's a mixture of "not many new characters" and "plot didn't develop a whole lot".


Tbh, this is one of your better reviews...
Oh the irony... I haven't given a proper review in months, and I haven't had an English lesson since May and I give a great review. Typical :p


Lack of spell check. I typed that entire thing in the window within about fifteen minutes.
I don't think I spotted any other mistakes though, not to my knowledge.


Wow. You pick up on my intentional color-coding and then dismiss it. Good job! ;]
Pfft of course, what else did you expect me to do?


It's Blue. Just go with killing, swearing, explosions, and manic laughter. You'll always be somewhat close.
Good point!


I suppose. I don't like the fact that it wouldn't be over the comms because he'd have to SCREAM IT LOUD ENOUGH FOR THE ENTIRE BATTLEFIELD TO HEAR if he doesn't use them.
“Charge!” Golde roared.

He leapt from the hillside directly into the mass of soldiers below. As his voice echoed over the comms, a few hundred officer-class Shinigami screamed "CHARGE!" in unison, throwing themselves into the melee and tearing into the opposition.


Possibly. I could rewrite it, but I'm lazy and busy.
Pfft alright.


All of us have very fitting codenames; yours was actually the easiest to pick.
Haha, oh?


It was your prediction. Of course it was.
Heh. If only I was the same person that my character is.


Sora = Soroft, btw. And yeah, those two make an awesome team because they can both manipulate/control weather.
Ah, I see.


Actually, I'm amazed that you didn't.
Haha, I'll take that as a compliment :p


Please tell MC this. Or I'll be forced to beat his barrage of six #80 and up Kidou spells with two spells under #10... again.
I'll be sure to pass on the message to him.


Kinda just came to me when I realized that Rex is average height while Jaku is supposed to be like, 6'5".
*Leans against ruler*
...Well, I am called Ant for a reason...


I promise, they'll be more epic than anything I've done so far.
I expect nothing less.



Ok, no. See, the NATO letters are for each undersized section / oversized fireteam, of which there are roughly 26 per Squad. The first number refers to the Squad, so in this case, they would be Squad 2 members. The second number refers to the order of command within that fireteam / section. Therefore, Foxtrot 2-1 is the commander of Foxtrot section in Squad 2.
Ah, alright. Makes sense.


Haha, I'm glad somebody picked up on that. Vidar is also the Norse god that most exemplifies kusari (according to him), so it was a win-win either way.
Woo, awesome.


Blithering fudge monkeys.
So using that somewhere.


I did, in fact mean, "his voice came extremely close to a growl". Fenrir are the main growlers in my stories. Non-Fenrir don't generally growl unless they are extremely ticked off.
Ah, alright.


Maybe you're "imagining" it ;D
*Grabs mackerel and oar*


Lame, but it was pretty short notice and I was trying for some commonality next to the extravagance of Mobius Actual, Vidar 1-3, and Gaia Three.
I personally like having lots of extravagant code names :p


That was actually an experimental passage, and I wasn't sure how well it would go over. I'm glad you liked it so much.
Though that might be because I'm so used to reading second-person-singular? Homestuck uses it as the narrative pov quite a lot, and a lot of HS fanfiction mimics that.


Actually, there is one other person who could do it. And no, it isn't Golde. Frankly, the only reason Rouga is doing it is because he actually has a reason to fight her.
I'd guess but I'd get it wrong.


I will tell you this right now: You will never see the loss coming.
What does that even mean?

Also, I do not subscribe to the principle of "My Kung-Fu is Better than Yours". Take that for what you will.
I'll TV Trope that for a more technical definition later.


Actually, this was a damn good review.
What was so good about it :p (yes, review my review).


Look who's ba-

Oh ILPy already pulled it.
Yeah, been inactive. I blame ILPy. He's contagious, even with the North Atlantic Ocean between us.
Good to see you back too, then :p I aim to get back to my "one post a day" habit, provided someone else is there to fill my gaps.



I'm hoping Kubo is not serious on letting either one of them die, because if he is, it'll be Unohana. T_T
Gut instinct says that won't happen; both are needed for use, later.

And I saw the name Golde in one of the books I'm reading for my class. 8D He was a... doctor.
The author of the book saw the bleach club, was fascinated by your character, and Golde's, and threw them together.

Okay so what are the current plot points we have running?
Ichigo and Renji with Nimaiya.
Unohana and Kenpachi killing each other repeatedly.
Shunsui getting Soul Society back together again.
Urahara, Orihime, Chad and "that person" (coughGrimmjowcough) stuck in Hueco Mundo.

Unohana is far more epic, and we don't know what her shikai/bankai can do. It would be horrible if she died.

On the other hand, she's just trying to make Zaraki a better Swordsman. So if she dies she'll only be replaced by what we've already seen, but with more strength.

I have a feeling that the whole "healing Zaraki even though she stabbed/"killed" him is actually part of her zanpakutou. It would kind of fit, in a sadistic way, as a ruthless killer; to slash slash slash and your opponent will STILL be alive. Though we hadn't seen her release, yet, it could have been a "why do you assume my zanpakutou was sealed?" situation. I should reread the latest chapters so I fully understand what's going on.

Hmm, possibly, which is why I think it's unlikely that one will die; because it'd be pointless, unless the outcome is that the one who survives is stronger than the sum of the Kenpachis who entered.

Urahara, Orihime, Chad and "that person" (coughGrimmjowcough) stuck in Hueco Mundo.

Any theories for where they're going?
Actually, not really. Kubo's kind of unpredictable in this arc, but in a good way.
After the first part of the arc, I'm willing to just sit back and see what he's got planned.
I wonder when he's going to send someone to save Harribel though...


RAWR!

Wild Rotrum Appears!

Unohana is far more epic, and we don't know what her shikai/bankai can do. It would be horrible if she died.
Zameric used Metal Claw, it's super-effective!
Hye Rotrum, long time no see! :D

If Kubo want's to keep his fans from getting pissed off, then he better not kill off Unohana.


Hipster Unohana :P
She doesn't look half bad wearing glasses

I have so much time, because I'm sick Arc :P

Hipster Unohana.. Um.. Uglyyyyyyy. Don't kill ne Arc

I'm pretty sure someone will die. I have that gut feeling. But then again, if either one of them dies, who else is there to defend the second wave.

Now, if these 2 are this powerful, where does this put Kurosaki?


One more day before the new chapter :3

Those look really nice... Hipster Unohana is meh.

Hipsters / Avatar TLA/LoA?


Favorite indeed. I spent most of the time designing teams and choosing movesets. lol.
Haha, yes. I like looking at some different types of metagames, too.

Have some faith, won't you? XD
What's that?

I wonder when he's going to send someone to save Harribel though...
I think Nel will probably want to save her.

Ichigo will, unfortunately, always somehow be better than everyone he fights.

Heh, no chapter. Just when things were starting to turn around.. *sigh*

Screw Ichigo. He needs more techniques.

Yopu have Evory and Ibony
Yes, that was intentional
Yeah, Python lab does too

Avatar one.

Just for that fight.
Well, at least he's scared of Unohana

Screw techniques. He needs less screentime, that is all

Bit of both, I think. A massive cast is great if we can see the right amount of each character.
But a main character with just one attack is seriously boring, even if he didn't get that much screen time. We need variety and there's a limit to how much "add more characters!" makes things interesting.

Thanks.

Fanart.. I was saying in general ;)

Too much Dragonball Z logic..

Technically, Unohana's getting more screen time than Ichigo for the last few weeks.. Not that you'd notice :P
