That brings us to Shutara, whom Mayuri seems to resent and does have some physical resemblance to Nemu. Perhaps she was his first experience? And she "outgrew" her creator, became "superior" to Mayuri — that would be the reason why he doesn't like her and is so controlling of Nemu: he doesn't want another Shutara situation in his hands, he doesn't want Nemu to surpass him. If she is actually the seventh experience, he might as well have discarded/killed all the previous ones when they started to act outside of his orders and were close to surpass him. (Or he might have simply have modeled Nemu after Shutara, but I like the other idea better.)
    Do you mean experiment? I'm sure Kubo will go forever without saying anything about it, then when no one cares he'll bring it up.

    He may, of course, and it wouldn't be out of character for him.

    It's just more interesting if there's more into it.
    Nemu being somewhat similar to Shutara and called "the seventh" makes one wonder.

    Chapter up.

    The Nemu-Mayuri moment was hilarious. Especially Mayuri being the one calling someone else creepy.
    Beyond that, this fight needs to end. Seriously. Dragged along enough as it is. It's turned into a loop, Mayrui thinks he has the upper hand, Pernida rebuffs it. Mayuri tries something else, Pernida rebuffs it. Needs to stop.
    And we can assume Nemu sacrifices herself, or puts herself near the brink of death, causing Mayuri to flip out and power up himself or something.

    Never noticed Nemu and Shutara looked like each other. Theory was interesting nonetheless.

    Welp, Mayuri underestimated Pernida's learning capabilities. At least he and Nemu worked together and now she must save Mayuri.

    Manga's out.

    Well now, a little backstory with Nemuri. Which was pretty interesting in my opinion.
    That smirk on Akon's face said it all. 'Masterpiece.'
    And she just flew through the hand and blew it up like it was nothing..

    The Shutara theory is dead I suppose.

    Though I don't remember anyone besides Ichigo getting this many chapters for a fight. I guess this'll be around for another few weeks..

    I'm getting a bit tired of this fight now, it's been great but time to wrap it up.

    So Nemu's really strong and will protect Mayuri. Okay. I want this fight to end though, hopefully by next week but I won't get my hopes up knowing Kubo.

    I give it two more at least, I'm expecting Nemu to die and Mayuri to live unfortunately.

    Even if Nemu dies Mayuri can just make a new one anyway. She's disposable. I hope the remaining fights against the other Sternritter aren't this tedious though.

    If she was disposable, Mayuri would've disposed of her instead of keeping her all this time.

    And given how long it took to perfect her, who knows if the next Nemuri will be as successful as #7.

    Well, #1-6 progressed stages to stages, with #7 progressing to be Nemu.
    #8 COULD be enhanced to be stronger than the current 'version'.

    That's little morbid..

    I'm hoping for no more deaths, as Unohana and Yachiru was sad enough.

    Why?

    This is a war, and war is hell. And it's not like we'll see them ever again since it's the last arc.

    I'm still angry Byakuya's supposed death ended up being reversed.

    In the sense of Kubo not dragging this out.
    Everyone dying has their teary farewell, followed by a flashback chapter.
    How much more do we need to see that?

    I just want to get this over with, and see how Ichigo plays out with a full-fledged Zan, what abilities and attacks he gets besides the OP Getsuga Tenshou.
    We only got a cross-shaped Getsuga.

    I believe we're past dragged out.

    This is, what, year three? Meanwhile Mayuri gets two fights while Renji and Rukia have had one each and Chad has had...zilch.

    Why are these guys in the main character group if they exist to...exist?

    Well, she did say 400 seconds. Chances are she'd die after that... maybe?

    We don't even know if Yachiru is dead.
    I mean she just sort of disappeared.

    Unless you were talking about Yachiru Unohana. But you already mentioned Unohana.

    And he came back being more OP than before too.

    We've seen Rukia's and Renji's new powers, so chances are they'll be forgotten in the future until... the end.

    I would expect the upcoming fights to show Byakuya's new powers. And maybe Orihime and Chad.

    I remember it being implied, Yachiru's bones crumbled and disintegrating completely.

    Chad never intrigued me. His powers always bored me out.
    Same with Orihime, but her powers played a huge part in the Aizen's plot.

    I do hope we move on to a different fight/Ichigo.
    Nemuri dying will be sad, but it's gotta happen. Hope Mayuri goes with her.

    Gremmy said his powers stop working if he doesn't focus on what he imagined.

    If Yachiru disappeared from his powers, then she would've done so long before Kenpachi used his Shikai.

    And that being how she dies would be a giant copout.

    Not even Kubo could write something so awful.

    Typical of Kubo to just ignore characters.
    How long did it take for Grimmjow to show his face after his silhouette and sword made an appearance early in the arc?

    Kubo can write something awful like that. He's done it before.

    Their fights will likely be the extreme opposite of this one and end quickly imo. I don't care for either of them though, so I wouldn't mind.

    Nemu isn't disposable, Mayuri himself stated how hard it would be to create another one; and Akon basically said it was a miracle how she was able to grow and develop.

    I meant in the sense that she's a minor character and wouldn't be missed much unlike if someone important died.

    Well, the Jump came out a day early.

    Bit brutal how she went out, disintegrated.. Yikes.
    And here I thought Mayuri would show a momentary sign of emotion, but nope. All part of his tricks.
    And Szayelaporro gets a cameo. Like that even mattered. When he mentioned Homunculus, it reminded me of FMA
    Hopefully, and I really mean hopefully this ends the fight.

    Not Nemu.

    She was one of the better ones. Probably because she didn't talk all that much.

    Or because she had zero character development.

    But he salvaged her 'brain', might see her in the epilogue as a child or something.

    Lol, so Nemu did die after all. I liked the Szayelaporro cameo at the very least. It was a cool moment, though watch Pernida survive still.
