You know what I noticed.. I don't think the Quincy are actually taking the captains Bankai I'm starting to think they're actually taking away the Zanpaktou Spirit itself Hitsugaya couldn't talk to Hyorinmaru and Byakuya couldn't even use his Shikai against As Nodt. So why can't Ichigo use his Bankai? He already lost Zangetsu when he defeated Aizen 17 months ago he received his powers back but only because his Fullbring is substituting for Zangetsu therefor he can't be taken away. That's just what I think just a little crazy conspiracy : p
But yeah they are dead. Dying again simply means they will be reincarnated as a new soul in the Living World, so it kind of equals to dying. As in, gone forever.
No, it's all because Masaki was a Quincy
So you're saying that he doesn't currently have a zanpakto spirit?
Personally, I'm just waiting for Unohana to show up and kick some asses.
A soul that cannot be saved drifts and disappears,
In the instant it vanishes, it shines faintly,
Now, it creates a night with a full moon.
Zombie Rukia is the most graphic thing to ever come out of this series. I can just imagine all the creepypastas that are gonna pop up about it. Hope Kubo does some more creepy scenes like that.
Anyways guys don't worry about Toshiro. He's got child immortality.
Byakuya's probably dead though. It's sad but it might lead to some development for Rukia.
If you rooted for Dawn during A Grand Fight For Winning even though you knew she'd lose, then copy and paste this in your signature.
I don't know how that would extend to Menos Grande though. :x
there are rare occurances in Gillian where, upon transformation, an individuality that has not been completely lost surfaces. Now that I think about those energy laws, if that's the case, what happens to the Hollows that are killed by Quincies or other means that don't involve a Soul Reaper's sword. I'm thinking that when the souls are destroyed (like what happened to Gin or Hollows killed by a Quincy's attack), the energy goes through the Soul King. If I had to make a guess, I would say that the Soul King has the power to reconstitute destroyed souls, but he tends to consume the weaker souls in order to increase his own strength. The stronger ones, however, are given another life and are made another part of the Royal Guard, which could also be known as Zero Company.
Now why wouldn't the Soul King simply consume the stronger souls? It could be the same principle as what goes on with Hollows or monarchies in general: If the king has any vassals that are more capable in terms of both strength and will, that vassal will eventually cause uproar within the whole population and eventually become the new king after the old one is removed. If the Soul King consumed any souls with stronger souls, that one soul's will will eventually take over, and a new Soul King would come to be. Aizen was probably pissed off with the Soul King because he thought of him as a weakling who only survives by staying away from stronger foes and only consuming those that he knows that he can consume without fear of being controlled by that one soul's will. The Soul King is supposed to be preventing this loss of energy balance between the human world and the world of the living, but yet, the Soul King is potentially taking so much for himself. People could argue that this is a good thing because the Soul King has to be strong in order to reconstitute the destroyed souls and keep the balance, but if the Soul King keeps on taking in energy for himself and his army, then what would happen next? I'm betting that this idea is what motivated Aizen to go after the Soul King's head, and I'm also betting that the Vandenreich are causing anarchy in Soul Society in order to coax the Soul King into coming out of hiding in his pocket dimension, kill him, and take over before being consumed themselves.
And that's my incredibly long theory on what's going on.
The Vandenreich probably are after the Soul King. I don't see any other reason why they would attack Soul Society; sure, the shinigami killed off the Quincy, but that was probably on the Soul King's orders. I can't wait to see the emperor guy in action, hopefully against Yamamoto.
Seems like As Nodt is a boy just in case anyone was wondering.Originally Posted by QUOTE

But yeah, Hitsugaya only gets high stats because he's popular
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
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.
Aaaand it's Kenpachi vs Emperor Zangetsu. I wonder how will the fight go.
What the.. Kenpachi's already killing Stern Ritters? Oh wow I saw that one coming.. I wonder why he didn't go towards Byakuya though. And Renji seriously out for the count already? I actually thought we would get to see your new Bankai here but I guess not Ichigo just needs to get to S.S already god damn.
Anyone expecting Kenpachi to lose so easily clearly needs to read this manga from the start again.
Bye, Byakuya! Hitsugaya will probably be joining you soon!
Also I feel bad for Renji and Rukia they got defeated so easily.. I wonder how Ichigo is going to react to all this when he arrives in the S.S

Also, I just noticed. Buckbeard looks kinda like he could be Kenpachi's dad...
And you're right he kind of does look like the father of Kenpachi.. anyway I wonder how Ichigo will react to Byakuya's death and Renji and Rukia getting injured.
Damn, he really is dead. Toshiro please do the right thing and join him. I hate how kenpachi is that strong. I honestly wanna see him get his *** kicked for a change. -.-
So Byakuya could still use shikai. Interesting. I really wanted Renji to avenge Byakuya, but As Nodt and that other guy couldn't be beat. Talk about overwhelming. It looks like Byakuya is dead, but I know better than to believe the hype; this is just like when Rangiku was "killed" by Gin.
