Rukia new power is really cool, but the explanation could be better.

He's kinda not. It seems Rukia's ability is more about temperature and freezing (while it still can produce ice), and Hitsugaya is going with ice itself, while still being able to freeze his opponents in ice.

P.S. the explanation could be much, much better. Like, Rukia would need to experience actual death of her body during her zanpakuto training, stopping all processes in it, and she would need to acknowledge and accept that state of her body with her mind. Which would lead to her getting rid of the fear of death. Not moving around with absolutely frozen body driven only by reishi/reiatsu. (although, Kubo's version still makes some sense, within Bleach universe).

It'd make reference to some yoga/meditative techniques existing in RL, where you acknowledge death and stop fearing it.

Ok the thing with the death... I can go on with this because they somehow all die. But wait when she can move although she is dead doesn't that mean that rukia is a zombie?

NO. In metaphysical terms, all living beings in Soul Society are "reishi-based lifeforms".
Do you guys not remember about reishi? Or is this about Bleach readers being Bleach readers?

I hate how Kubo pulls out shit like this. It's ridiculous how good guys randomly have THAT ONE ABILITY that beats the one used by the villains.

Ok that was a bad chapter but then I expected as much, with the way this series has been for past years.
These fights now are just boring yammering of how their powers work and it's really just quite pointless on the whole.

However I will admit that chapter 567 wasn't a complete waste of time as when you reach that cover page you just kinda stop for a moment to bask in the glory of it all.
Now I will say that Rukia is not my favorite girl of the series, infact I could say she doesn't even get into my top 5 but as always there comes a time for a character to have their moment and by god this is Rukia's moment, a simple image but a glorious simple image.
Theres only one word to describe Rukia there and that's delicious!

It also makes me think that Kubo should really just stop with writing a manga story and just draw 20 pages of single images depicting whats going on(without dialogue) and just let us enjoy it then.

LOL. The author's not the one getting all hot and bothered arguing "real world" physics about a series based around "reishi-based lifeforms" that have all kind of magical powers and currently aren't even in their version of the real world, much less the real real world.

I would also like to congratulate you all, because they are now all dead. Every one. God has killed all the catgirls, thanks to the last few pages...

aaahhhhhh my brain! it feels like it's frozen to -42°...

rukia: "I'm dead, but this makes me deader. luckily i can control my deadness"
as nodt: "the joke's on you! I'm also dead. But wait. Now I'm deader. I can't control my deadness at this temperature!"

...

renji: "It's negative 9000!!!!!"

^ Correction: absolute zero, according to her. Oh, and the thing about reishi-based lifeforms is a response to those who complain about the laws of physics being violated with Hihio Zabimaru.

Speculah: As Nodt fights using a conceptual weapon that moves from reishi to reishi using the soul's innate "fear of death". It only works on living reishi for that reason.

Shouldn't the fear still affect her when she stops her technique (after the fight)?

I wouldn't count As out yet. I think Kubo's going to use Rukia as fodder in order to powerup Byakuya.

In either case......this is seriously the first time Rukia has been useful since the timeskip years ago. No wonder it's fucking snowing constantly....THIS IS THE RUKIA I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO SEE FOR YEARS!!!

I personally expect it to completely shut her down once she ends her technique. For her sake I hope she has actually defeated Äs Nödt by then...

She doesn't have to not defeat Äs Nödt in order for Byakuya to swoop in and have to save her. There are plenty of other Sternritters still running around invisible to her senses. Any one of them could come up on her as she's recovering from Äs's fear technique hitting her hard as soon as she thaws. Maybe we'll get lucky and Kubo will decide to view the ensuing battle from her perspective, warped a la Scarecrow's fear toxin from Batman... A demonic Byakuya vs an angelic (yet still "terrible" in the classic sense) Quincy...

EDIT:
LOL 5000 GET!
