THIS IS A MANGA ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS ANYTHING BEYOND THIS CHAPTER.
----------------------------------------
Bambietta Basterbine is one hell of an awesome name.

Also is that guitar guy that one Visored? What was up with him?

All in all okay chapter, lots of killing.

But as predicted everyone is nicely splitting up, finding an opponent to fight one on one. Let's just hope this is not going to turn into another Karakura arc, with showing every single fight in detail therefore taking FOREVER fot his to finish. Although my hopes are faint. Gonna take at least half a year for these fights to finish and the "plot" to continue moving. I call it. (God knows I hope I'm wrong...)

I think that's Rose who is indeed a Visored.

Awful, just awful. Kubo spent three quarters of this chapter to set up who's gonna fight who, one of which was filled with his trademark pretentious dialogue, and when it comes to the combat he decides to narrate what's happening instead of showing us the battle. Kubo should fix his horrible writing style rather than killing off irrilevant characters just to prove that the meme "nobody dies in Bleach" isn't true.

I thought it was pretty neat, and as OP said, "Bambietta Basterbine is one hell of an awesome name". In any case, pretty brutal, I'm excited for the upcoming fights.

Like others have said, I hope Kubo doesn't drag the fights out too much though. Here's hoping.

He probably has no choice but to drag the fights out since its a war. I just hope its one chapter per captain.

Did there need to be an entire chapter just to show who's fighting who? This is turning into Karakura all over again. In another year or so, these fights will still be going on and we'll get back to Ichigo still fighting one person.

Also, what's up with the guy asking why people are screaming before they die? Does he not know what pain is?

I actually quite enjoyed this, lots of badassness all around. And to be honest, the Quincy designs are something new and fresh for this series, not just more people with swords.

I have high hopes, Don't disappoint us, Kubo!

Ohh Byakuya, sexy as ever 8D lolol

This was a build up chapter so you can't expect too much. Actually I thought it was pretty good for a build up chapter.

Can't wait to see the captains fight. Pretty sure Kubo will drag out each fight. Oh well at least it's captains fighting and hopefully we'll get to see their bankais too. ^^

So the match-ups are somewhat set.

Seeing Kyouraku, Ukitake, Rose, Komamura and Byakuya serious like that was good and should speed things up. Soifon and Toshiro are paired up too it seems.

The fact that these guys even lasted a few seconds in front of these "Quincies", shared some words and got into fighting position means Aizen probably won't be necessary here. I mean Yama-ji and some other Captains havn't even appeared yet. (Or we could be trolled next chapter with Quncies 1hko'ing everyone lol)

Still though, I will patiently await Aizen, whether it's now, at the climax of the story or even the epilogue.

Rose looks really badass, hope he is going to beat that Quincy.

Kyouraku and Ukitake are already using their shikai, they are ready to kill some Quincy.

Byakuya was just like Byakuya and it was awesome.

Also, As' thorn pierced right through the head of a shinigami and Bambietta cut another one in half which showed once again that this arc is going to be brutal.

I don't like to memorize new names in Bleach (especially the enemies' ones) and this tradition seems to continue, anyone feeling the same?

Agreed.

I sort of liked this chapter although not much happened. Izuru might not have died though apparently since Rose quotes "If he dies, both I and my flying V will be sad". If you don't die from a blow like that then how the hell do you die?

I'm personally looking forward to seeing new bankais. Maybe Kenpachi/Yoruichi may surprise us lol? I'm sure Kyoraku and Ukitake have one but just haven't shown it but then again they didn't even show it when they fought captain Yamamoto. Oh well, who knows, just hope this shit doesn't drag on.

That would be interesting.
But wasn't either Kyouraku's or Ukitake's Bankai so devastating that they didn't use it even in a fake town with just captains and vice-captains around? Not sure they'd use it on Soul Society then...
And Urahara's bankai is apparently pretty deadly, too. I hope we get to see at least that one - though they've not been involved in all this at all yet. Yoruichi could at least give them all a good beating up without having to use a zanpakoto.

Looks like we'll finally be able to see one of the vaizards actually duke it out for real. I was hoping for more of them though instead of the same old Renji and Byakuya and etc. (except for Kyouraku and Ukitake cause they're badass). And wtf is up with the quincy names? Nananananajahkoop? Really?

Loving it.Im interested in Bambietta Basterbine vs Komamura so much *w* and finally Kyouraku serious mode.Now theres no time to wait, USE BANKAI D:
Byakuya entrance ofc ftw.

Everything is looking wonderful, but i hope it wont be like all shinigamis won all fights in 1st chapter.Hoping for some death of good guys, and alot of injuries.Sounds like im sadist, but thats what Bleach needs, tho in last chapters we had some nice bloody scenes ^^
So...let me ask again, why the hell weeks are so long? >_>

Ukitake told Kyouraku that his bankai shouldn't be used with so many people around and Urahara's bankai isn't suited for training, I think we don't know more than this about their bankai. I doubt they wouldn't use it against such strong enemies

That the most stupid thing anyone can say since this is crazy fast events considering Bleach usual rhythm.

Actually since this is the final arc am surprised by this pace. Ether Kubo is ordered to finish fast, or he wants to finish fast and start something else Or this whole Quincy invasion and fights isn't what this arc is all about but just a tool for the following events of this arc.

People say he will drag the fights but seeing as how he didn't drag the build up to the fights as much as other times i am thinking that this fights will actually be smaller than what we previously saw with the Espada and such.

This chapter was good but once again we've reached a point where Bleach is building up a lot of questions -_-

Ehm, why don't they just go angel mode and turn soul society into a crater. Even if we assume the effects of what they absorb are irreversible, wouldn't it be worth it if they won?

Why is Renji's opponent holding back like that? It's like they're stalling for some reason, like this first charge is a diversion for something else...

And where's the quincy emperor, heading towards captain-commander Yamamoto? Or some other place?

This chapter was pretty much useless; not even a decent part this week. Where is Rukia? She has become so secondary ever since being rescued by Ichigo. The fight with the 9th Espada was long, but then few panels after that. She is the one who got me reading Bleach along with Ichigo. Their interactions were awesome, wanna see more of that.

Hey everyone! This is my first post since joining this site. I'm really excited to see the Captain's and Lieutenants ready to take on the Sternritter. I have a sneaking suspicion that a few Capt's and Lt's will die. I think Komamura will be the first to go. He doesn't bring much to the table.

I am really stoked to see Shunsui and Ukitake already in shikai! I really hope TK doesn't botch their bankai's after making the readers wait so long to see them.

Anybody else think that Yama sent Kenpachi to help Ichigo in HM and sent Shinji to Karakura town to get the remaining Vizords to bring back to SS?? I could be totally wrong but it wouldn't be the first time.

I'm glad to be here. Hope some of y'all stop by and say hello!

Awesome ch and Bambietta Basterbine really is an awesome name XD...the only one I bothered to remember.

I have the feeling that the king is heading towards some place or has another agenda for coming to SS.

I hope we finally get to see Ukitakes and Sunsui's bankais in this fight....they just have to QAQ

As awesome as Byakuya's appearance was I don't think he'll win this one. Ichigo is stronger than him and he's taking really long to finish the nazi angel.

Komamura will prob get offed by Bambietta, hitsugaya will likely win to please the fans, Rose will win as well considering how ridiculous that guy looks.

Don't see Soi Fon winning without her bankai, if she would choose to use it.

That guy is def holding back on Renji but he hasn't gone bankai and will not be offed cause well...he's popular.

All I wanna know is
- where the hell is Grimmjow
- where is Yamamoto going
- will Ichigo ever get dubs
- when will Aizen bust out or be released
- are we actually going to see Ukitake, Shunsui, Yamamoto and Urahara's bankais in this fight or later on

We'll get the bankai's for sure. The fight are really serious now!

I wanna know if Ichigo has any new power ups, because he lost his hollow side and only with bankai he's not gonna go far...Since Ginjo stole his fullbring, i don't know for sure, but he can't use it anymore, right? X)
