well... expecting too much and end up disappointed...

I really hope Yamajii won't die in one hit... at least let him die in better way!

I really hope that explosion is made by Yamajii.. then he will appear and say "well, what you kill is another form of my bankai! it's only a decoy"
then an epic battle will start again...


hoping too much

I don't know...I like Yama-kun's death. As soon as his powers were raised to the nth degree, it became fairly obvious that he would be nerfd somehow. But, even beyond that, Crazy-Hair-Dude is effectively the vengeance that Yama-kun's past ruthlessness has enacted on the world. By being the monster he was in the past, Yama-kun set in motion the events that led to the destruction of SS. Consequently, I like how his last actions were to be depowered (effectively raped) and then eviscerated. It was bleak and hopeless and lots of fun.

I especially liked Crazy-Hair-Dudes choice of words during this chapters attack: "Violate Soul Society". Quite a chilling word choice...

Yamaji got taken out like a punk.
Really i can't help but compare this to how other old anime badasses got taken out. In Naruto the 3rd Hokage had a fierce fight against one of the most prominent villains and in death managed to severely injure him and force him to retreat; considering Bach was planning on leaving anyway to wait for the royal guard maybe Yamaji could have achieved something similar. In One Piece, we had whitebeard who stormed the battlefield plowing through even the toughest opponents; he was taken out by the shear number of wounds that was inflicted upon him by the entire ARMY he was fighting against. Yamaji of bleach... he wastes his best moves taking out a minion and is then taken down effortlessly by the villain. Thus he dies achieving nothing and dying like a punk

There are five special war potentials, Ichigo&Aizen confirmed, waiting for the other 3.
So after eliminating the stronger enemies, they use zerg rush to win?
We see the main cast fighting all the time, so I didn't notice it that much, but it looks like the average shinigami is really weak

Kubo gave us crap that Yamamoto wasn't fighting in full-power because he had an Albus Dumbledore thing with his arm that he refuses to let Inoue heal it because of some pride shit that serves as an excuse to kill him with one slash

at least KT had the "kindness" to show us his bankai first before killing the character off

iirc Kenpachi was labeled a special war potential

which is even more ridiculous when you think about how Yamamoto forced two-handed swordfighting onto Kenpachi

ah I missed that hahaha, firemonster and young Yama got the same hairdo

Well, his death is supposed to be tragic.

aka epic fail

It's Bleach's final arc afterall, and Kubo himself said that there would be lots of death.
And go read One Piece in case you hate characters dying lol

just wounded it seems, but if you stop reading because of his death then...well,



Anyways, to the chapter. They showed that Mohawk Stern Ritter was still alive (he was exhausted looking as the soldiers stormed in), but didn't we see Yamamoto kill him? I thought the Mohawk guy was part of the trio that tried to surprise Yamamoto with As Nodt and ended up fried to death?

Anyways, Yamamoto's upper body falling to the groun was pretty crazy...and young Shunsui . I wonder...is that Ichigo coming through...the person who helped Urahara...or the 0 squad coming faster than Bach expected?

haha yea, might as well have said rape and pillage. rangiku needs to watch herself

i don't really have a problem with yama-jii's death. he wasn't ever that interesting of a character until very recently. he may have been the most boring captain actually. everything in the past few chapters about him was cool, but that's after a decade of almost nothing substantial. so his death was pretty fitting i think. cut down by the avenger he created.

also, i'm in the camp that thinks the fire monster was oldschool yama-jii. he used to be a murder machine until he exterminated the quincy and got lazy and started enjoying life to an extent. given that description it makes sense that bach would be stronger now, since he's spent this time honing his revenge.

I assumed the picture was meant to symbolize his bankai. When he released it, we saw how it could decimate soul society if it went on for too long, so I just assumed that was when he first got his bankai, which meant that if he ever had to use his bankai again, he was telling shunsui, it'd be in a position where he would probably die by his enemy's or his own hands.

I think the One-Hit KO is fine. We don't need every fight to have East/South/West/North "modes" that takes forever to finish. The plot needs to move forward.

That's the same rationale that got us the atrocious, predictable ending of the Ichigo vs Ulquiorra fight, and now it seems those adjectives might make their return here. Of course, for the former, that was when I still was deeply invested in Bleach, so yeah, no anger this time, just a weary headshake.

And really, I could care less about Bleach's plot at this point, or how slowly it moves forward. It was really always the characters I was interested in, and my desire to see good guys actully die in the series was second to the desire to see them developed, rather than be shoved aside and ignored for new characters every new arc. And imo, Kubo's just shown again how he doesn't really have any idea what to do with them, killing them off frivolously one after the other rather than develop them, taking the easy way out. Then again, he did reduce most of these characters to cardboard cutouts long ago, so in a way maybe it's fitting they get knocked aside so indifferently.

My mind reels already at the level of asspull Ichigo's going to need to defeat the guy who just beat the strongest character in the series with one slash. It strained my disbelief when he beat Aizen, but I don't think I'll ever be ready for this.

The standing after death is a thing used even before One Piece Whitebeard death so don't start this stupid thing like "oh he totally stole that from there!", many things in life were done before, all we are doing is redoing it.
By that your logic if you see a guy saying "It's a good day", but you said it before he did then he totally ripped you off...

Anyway, Yama's death was now how I expected, and I doubt that, if it's truly Ichigo the cause the explosion in the sky, it would mean that Ichigo comes to the "rescue" but his previous mental state suggest that Ichigo comes to "slaughter".

^ Well then let's hope it's Hollow Ichigo and not Ichigo. Because Ichigo just isn't the slaughter type - and after seeing Yama's murder I really want to see some Quincy limbs flying about.

It seems Kubo is dead serious on killing important characters. First Byakuya, now old man Yamamoto. Who's next?
