So, Yama released his bankai despite having previous knowledge that it will be taken away? Or was he not informed? Or does being over 2,000 years old make you impervious to this sort of thing? I'd really like to know.

Sorry, I just wish that Kubo would actually use the characters that can fight these people off and not just waste them. I know that Ichigo is going to have to save the day, eventually, but come on. This will be a waste of a chapter if all he does is 'showcase' Yama's bankai then quickly cliffhang the story, with a shot at the bad guy (on the verge of death of course) says, "Oh wait, I can take your bankai!" Cue shock face of Yama. Next chapter no bankai and gets shit kicked out of him. Cue maniacal laughter, "Now I truly have the power to destroy Ichigo Kurosaki!" ...Well, so much for that moral!

To me, it seems as if Kubo feels pressured into showcasing more bankais now, ever since the butterflizen debacle. Perhaps when Aizen gets his 'Get Out of Jail Free' card, we might see his as well (if he is even released from prison). Though I'd like to see Urahara's more, and I have a feeling, thought, that that will never happen. Here's to hoping.

It's called Alzheimer-Desease.


It was kinda surprising that, of all people, yama released his Bankai now. I really didn't expect this, though with it happening so soon, I don't exactly expect alot of ass-kicking either. :/

maybe he deduced from his fight with Driscoll that even if the Bankai is controlled by a Sternritter, it would not be as powerful as it was used by the original Shinigami. so he is confident that even if his Bankai maybe stolen, it would be weak.

just my 2 cents

Shikai being large scale AoE, and Bankai being something... different, to cover for Shikai's "weakness". (like in case of Yamamoto, when fighting someone as strong as Jucha he'll probably need to concentrate his power into one spot, not spreading it around)

My guess would be it condenses all of Ryujinjakka's power into one flame.
so the heat in the sword is so intense it capable to cut anything.

like lightsaber?

no bankai has had the right timing and mood to appear since ichigo's.....

am i the only one whose disappointed that there had to be another 3 sternritters get fried just like that especially since i had interest in AS NODT....

sternritter death count - 7
shinigami death count - 1 captain(tentative) 1 Vice captain, i assume rose is defeated too since nanana appeared to backstab yamajii..... + thousands of random shinigamis

seems pretty hard right now to even look at itchigo as the main character, his power seems so tiny compared to what we have seen so far.

and zero squad who I assume are going to be even more powerful. Insane.

Of course he knows. He only just finished incinerating the guy who stole his subordinate's bankai.

There is no way he'd release his bankai if there was a doubt in his mind that it could be stolen from him...

I doubt the "king" is going to steal his ban kai. It looks like a petty trick his subordinates need to use.

I don't know. Have we even seen Ichigo at full power yet? After he got them back he seems to be on a whole other level compared to how strong he was before.

Do we even know if he still has his inner hollow? And when it came to his fights, he has exuded nothing but utter confidence, gauged the power of his opponent and then proceeded to wipe the floor with them without going all out and maxing his abilities.

I think he's a lot stronger than what we've seen of him so far. I'd also really like to know if he still has his hollow because if he does, shit's about to get real.

So Yamamoto just one hits As Nodt, Mohawk (it's a shame, I hear a lot fo people were looking forward to him...but he's basically Kensei with a Mohawk, so...meh), and NANANANANA JAKOOP!?

Damn, Sternritter are getting dropped like flies...but this is probably just Kubo's way to get rid of lot of enemies for later in the arc. By 'final arc' methinks the story is going to cover a lot, and seem like multiple arcs.

Anyways, Yamamoto's Bankai! Finally! I really like the idea that Bankais that COMPRESS themselves can't be stolen, and then there's Kenpachi who has no Bankai, so I wonder who the others are that will be safe from the theft?

Didn't like all the sh*t talking between the two though...good chapter, but so much more could happen without 'it's be 1000 years' 'lol you're old', etc etc

Welp, this is it. Yamamoto is done for. I kinda thought he'd survive this arc since he couldn't use his bankai (and Kubo needs to show it before killing him off) but he's going to use it nonetheless. I hope he's got a plan and isn't retarded like Byakuya and the other two.

This whole final arc feels so fake and surreal. Suddenly we have a group that has never been alluded to (unless those two hanging bodies were quincies) after a villian that spanned most of the series. Yama doesn't feel AIZEN is a big enough threat to use his bankai against (christ he could have taken down all of the espada at this rate) but this guy is? Plus, aren't quincies just humans with power? How has he lived for over a thousand years?

Everything feels so rushed. I would love some real explaination.

That would mean that for them to steal someone's bankai, the Bankai needs to manifest itself physically.
My thoughts exactly. Perhaps he released his bankai so quickly is so he's going to try and defeat the enemies quick enough or leave them so hard pressed they cant use the seal.

Join the club, been saying this for a while. The 'Quincy' in this arc break all the aforementioned rules of Quincies that we know. Most of them don't use projectile based weapons and Juha has even brought out a sword. Driscoll and As Nodt are the only ones to demonstrate any kind of projectile/arrow based attack, and they're gone now.

As I mentioned though, everything is probably rushed because the arc will be a long one and Kubo is clearing out all the unnecessary clutter. The Stern Ritters needed their alphabet theme, so he had to fill those spots out. Right now I think he's just slaying the ones that don't matter--kinda hurts that we didn't see some of their powers though (NANANA Jakoop and Mohawk Guy for example.)

As for explanations, I hope we get one on how Komamura exists. I understand he's a dog, but how is he humanoid?

issit just me or?yama ji releasing his bankai too soon/too stupid?is bleach gonna end?i dunno.

anyways if YAMA JI bankai-ed means that buckbeard is REALLY strong.
IMO on all of this is that yama ji will defeat buckbeard and the real boss ends up being ISHIDA.ishida might have been used as a spy to infilitrate HC and SS without his knowledge during the previous arcs just so the vandenreich could learn.in the end ichigo and him will have to face off.thats why icigho and ryuken have some king of history.

also when is ichigos father gonna show up?flashbacks?and squad zero?
kubo really has alot of info yet to be revealed...

did they refer to themselves as quincies?i dont recall.all i remember is them being alluded as the vandenreich(maybe some kind of a next level quincy).like how theres hollows and arrancarrs and espandas.but the fundamental is they were quincies.i dont remember ishida having any kind of special ability like some of those guys and quincies can suddenly steal bankais?

Yes, I've thought this for quite some time, but heck, I've been reading Bleach this long I should finish it. It's kind of sad. Like watching a horse with two broken legs try to walk. But, yeah, the arc feels very much like another filler arc and I have the same issues with the bankais (Aizen not releasing his and vise verse with Yama); it's irritating.

Yeah, but it has been established (loosely through transformation sequences) that these people are more than Quincies. They're Vandenreich. So, once they do get they're sad, sappy back story, I'm assuming that they were once Quincies and somehow got infused with Hollow powers, maybe after they died or maybe Aizen did experiments again. (Though that won't explain why that Christmas decoration from hell [can't remember his name] didn't know who he was [but this story is already filled with inconsistency and plot holes, it really shouldn't matter].)

Erm, if Yama's bankai is what people tend to believe, then it'd be kinda useless against Aizen.
