So this whole 1000 years bit...1000 Year Blood-War arc and Yamamoto couldn't kill Buckbeard a 1000 years ago. Earlier in the manga we had 1000 years mentioned in that no shinigami born in the past 1000 years is stronger than the Head Captain, and that the Shinigami Academy was founded about a 1000 years ago. I'm not sure if those last two pieces of information will tie-in at all, but I figured I'd bring them up again. Maybe Buckbeard was this "stronger" Shinigami, though a Shinigami/Quincy hybrid sounds loopy to me. Then again, we've had the Arcannar, so it's possible. This hunting captain seems to have a sword of his own.

Now, how would Mayuri know about what had happened a millenium ago when the Gotei 13 didn't even exist? I was under the impression that he's a random mad scientist that was picked up and imprisoned...

Interesting. I suppose in theory, there's nothing to technically prove it to be impossible for a shinigami to learn quincy techniques. So a shinigami/quincy hybrid seems plausible I guess. The only thing I feel worth mentioning is that, we've no way yet to know as to whether Yamamoto chose not to kill Buckbeard a millennium ago or he was too weak to finish him off.

*edit*
This is a long shot, but perhaps he's a shinigami, but also the very first Quincy--that is to say, a rogue shinigami who's ideas and philosophies pushed him into developing techniques for humans to wield spiritual energy, which then led to him passing those techniques on.

Soul Society does keep various historical records & archives. So that is one possibility. And we also don't know what important events throughout SS's long history have been passed down through word of mouth from generation to generation. So for all we know, this incident from 1000 years ago regarding Buckbeard might be one of those popular tales known all throughout Soul Society. Of course, I could be completely wrong about that too. I'm just throwing out possibilities here since I can't recall anything about this guy so far that confirms his history to have been kept a top-secret affair. As of right now, there's a strong possibility that the only reason we haven't heard of him till now is simply because the plot has given no character any good reason to bring him up.

sounds liek buckbeard is the quincy version of yamaji, which would make him stronger than aizen. they were probably best friends too, i jsut wonder why he looks so yougn if he's over 1K.

i think the captains are going to be destroyed... after all,, kubo still needs to use the 0 squad

P.S. I like Momo's new look.

Aizen went out of his way to occupy the main character, his cheerleading squad and four captains before beginning his invasion.

Yamamoto founded the academy over 2100 years ago. So the reason why Buckbeard probably looks younger than Yamamoto, is because there's a good chance, he's half Yama-jii's age or less.

My bad, yeah, the academy was founded a full 2000 years before. So that rules out a possible connection there, leaving just the "no stronger shinigami in the past 1000 years" bit.

Buckbeard being the very first Quincy? I could see that.

Kishi copies and pastes from the previous arc with different antagonist?

mayuri is awfully cheeky considering yamajii could kill him with spiritual pressure alone.

How can the enemy be this old?
Quincies are normal humans and therefore age and die normally. ???

Hmmm Mayuri's comments about Ishida were highly interesting. Maybe my crack theory isn't such a crack theory after all.

well, if they've been infused with Shinigami/hollow powers
they're not technically human anymore

anyway
I personally loved everyone's new looks
Kira's shorter bangs was great
I think Matsumoto cut her hair too
Momo looked great too with her new look
Nemu... is it just me or did her breasts got larger?
Nanao looked more mature
Tetsuzaemon and Yachiru didn't change that much though. maybe I didn't notice it

I wanna see the others too, like Isane
