That was probably my biggest problem with this chapter. Bach's sword seems to warp in size within panels. At first it looked like it should have slit at least half of Ichigo's neck off, but then we pan to Ichigo (with the Blut Vene) and it's somehow just stabbed him straight through--even though it was a curved blade. But maybe I was looking at it wrong.

I cannot express how epically disappointed I am that Ichigo didn't lose his head. I was steepling my fingers with glee at the thought. But no... plot hax has to come in and ruin it. Ah well... There should've been a better end for Byakuya as well but what the hey. Kubo has just kind of given up at this point.

It’s quite obvious that he has and it seems that he only knows one way for Ichigo to win: powering up. Even if the proposed power-up doesn’t make much sense in the context of the world Kubo’s constructed, it’s going to happen.

But I think ever since Aizen merged with the hoguyoku, Kubo’s been in state of defeat, in a state of, “Oh, I’ve just got to write and it doesn’t matter if it makes sense or not—I’ll fix any inconsistencies later!” and he’s never really recovered. (Most will probably argue that the Fullbringer Arc was when Bleach nosedived [some will argue the Arrancar Arc], but I’ve always felt it most during Aizen–in-beast-mode Arc.)

During this arc though, Kubo will either make Misaki a quincy or possibly something even more bizarre and improbable. The problem is, Ichigo should already be strong enough to fight off these Quncies. The kid has gone through so many transformations that he should literally be a God by now—and seeing how these events are leading up, it’s prepping him to be one.

Ichigo = Next Soul King?

No longer a completely unlikely possibility. Would be an interesting if not strange end to the manga. Ichigo uses his super hax powers to bring the two sides to an impasse and then agrees to mediate them as the new King of SS. Wonder what that'd do for his social life... Poster boy of every newbie soul reaper in SS? Possibly... But poor Orihime... Whatever would she do without her Kurosaki-kun?

I wouldn't put it past Kubo. People specualted in the past that the Soul King didn't exist or had been long dead when Aizen was trying to invade. Maybe they'll just put a crown on Ichigo's head once he's fixed everything.

Settle for Uryu?

I mean I think there has always been this chain of unrequited love in Bleach. Uryu loves Orihime (but she doesn't know it). Orihime loves Ichigo (but he doesn't know it). Ichigo has a mutual admiration with Rukia (or at least there was at the being of the series--now she looks up to him).

Actually i believe you were looking at it wrong as that wasn't bach's sword warping in size; ichigo's skin managed to block the blade, thus the blade only when deep enough to merely scratched him instead of taking his head off. The reason the blade looked so thin was because you only see the tip of the blade

not to mention bacht already was giving orders to bring ichigo back. most likely he was intending to just disable him via a very deep wound rather than just killing him by decapitation.

assuming ichigo acquired these quincy powers after/during being imprisoned in the cage, i'd place my bet on the mystery swordsman being isshin and ryuken being the one releasing ichigo and teaching him quincy techniques. seems most logical to me at this point

good call. the only way to make sense out of ichigo getting freed from a quincy prison is by a powerful quincy. but given the short amount of time, i'd assume that ryuken or possibly ishida just implanted quincy power in him some how. there wasn't really any time to learn and train

I thought the science guy with horns from soul society released ichigo and he was alone. when would ichigo have had time to meet with ryuken?

thank you for clearing the difference or rather the lack of difference between Quincy/Hollow and Shinigami techniques.

i still do find the Quincy stuff with Ichigo is absurd but the manga has to end sometime. Inuyasha went for longer than it probably should've though i think Bleach has surpaseed Inuyasha in that sense long ago.

I kinda of wish bleach ended right after the SS arc. The story was excellent up to that point but things just kind of fizzled out into a repeat of the SS arc, pointless combat for 50 chapters followed by a completely pointless arc followed by this bounto 2.0 arc.

Haven't read Bleach since they killed Gin in such a manner despite many characters surviving through much worse. Ichigo being the main offender.

So.. Is Gin back yet and did Ichigo gain yet another power where he somehow becomes the best at? Like is he a Quincy now or something? Wouldn't be surprised if that ever became a thing considering he seems to be getting everyone elses powers and than owning them with it.

You know, ever since we heard that the Soul King was either dead/missing/whatever, my first thought was "Oh Ichigo has to be him reincarnated" or something to that effect. A bit of a stretch, yes, but, now who knows...?

The first and only real clues we heard about the soul king is that the king is a "thing" and serves as a necessary "lynchpin" of sorts. Assuming this is the case, it puts some much needed perspective on Aizen's old statements regarding heaven's vacant throne.

So I hope Kubo can do without drawing any connections between Ichigo and this king (whatever "it" may be). IMO, the connection doesn't seem necessary anymore towards explaining his power and unrivaled potential.

Gin does not want to come back due to what's happening right now in bleach... he's happy he is not involve in this. but really Gin's not coming back.
