Or it proves that Royal Guard training doesn't mean a complete smackdown of the opposition.
Did everyone forget that Renji and Komamura-taichou jobbed a lot harder throughout the series than Rukia?

Only when it helps them make the argument that Bleach is sexist. Welcome to the internet. ^_^

Well, it looks like Kubo is pretty much done with Rukia at this point.

Congratulations, Sensei, you've managed to destroy every female character in this series at this point: the ladygami are either not fighting much(Isane/Nanao) or nearly dead(Soi/Matsu) to being killed off just to powerup one of the big leagues(Uno).

Congratulations for killing off the last hope I had of Rukia being useful. Couldn't wait to bring back Nii sama couldn't you? What's wrong the editor didn't like Rukia fighting?

KILL THEM ALL AS NODT. MAKE SURE THEY ARE SCARED SHITLESS AND CRAP THEIR PANTS AND MAKE SURE THEY'RE BOTH DEAD THIS TIME

I seriously fear what will happen to Yoruichi now.

it already happened against aizen. she was the least impressive between herself, kisuke and isshin and the only reason she was capable of anything was because of those dumb boots and gloves that kisuke made for her

I wonder how people really expected Rukia to be useful.
The whole first part of the series, she was nothing more than a side character without any power. Even Orihime was more useful than her. (She could still be)

Did this just validate that it is okay to shitpost about Bleach?

It's not that this wasn't expected....but with the RG powerup she got, she should've been able to do a helluva lot more before switching over to Byakuya. Renji, whose track record is on par with Chad's when it comes to losses, beat someone that took out three captains and two powerful gami. Rukia is just being used as fodder to powerup her brother.

Making Rukia a VC is the worst thing that Kubo's done for her throughout the series.

Orihime has those shields working for her at least. But I doubt that Kubo is going to powerup her either. Same with Chad.

And with the way the female 'gami have been dropping like flies, I'm not expecting Yoruichi to stick around.

IIRC that Virzard that fought with Byakuya also had an eye attack that did something and now Nodt also has an eye attack that does something who's also fighting Byakuya. Ain't that a bit meh?

That's just overestimating the skills of a Shinigami under the training of a Royal Guard.
Hell, I'm happy that Rukia needed help because it doesn't make Royal Guard training an absolute powerup against the Sternritter.

Spoiler for Medaka Box:

Not as bad as making a VC like Momo who did nothing but be the first and most-hit victim to Aizen's Kyoka Suigetsu.

I don't think humans are capable of climbing into the current level of powerlevels, unless Shunsui has some plans for them back in Karakura Town.

It's not like the males have been standing strong either.

Swear to God that when Momo showed up a while back during the Bambietta fight, I half expected to see Aizen back, too, just so we could see her run through by or because of Kyouka Suigetsu again...

She got the worse fate of showing up and not showing up again.

The sad thing is, Rukia could have won with just shikai. All she had to do was chop his head off after freezing him. She found a way around As Nodt's Fear, and he was practically helpless until he used Vollstandig. Renji had to go bankai because Mask had James constantly healing and powering him up. As Nodt has no such advantage.

It looks like everyone participating in this war is retarded. Rukia didn't bother to do the finishing blow. Neither did Hitsugaya, and he got his ass kicked. Cang Du could have killed him easily when he was lying on the ground, but he just had to waste his time talking to a dying dude. Bazz-B didn't finish Hitsugaya and Rangiku off and just walked away instead. BG9 decided to sit and extract data from Soifon instead of killing her, and he kissed her bankai. And so on and so on. Kubo is deliberately making everyone look like morons.

But yet, ironically enough, she's still standing while her dumbass captain and comrades are all nearly dead since Isane gotta heal up everyone XD

Don't forget that Rose blabbed about what his bankai can do, Shinji stood around like an idiot and got blown to kingdom come and Urahara almost got everyone killed with Opie.

Arguably Byakuya and Kenpachi.

Outside of an arguably fanatical obsession with following orders and rules that almost had him aid in killing his sister, he hasn't done anything particularly stupid. He left Ichigo legitimately unable to fight back in their first fight, and every fight he's lost, he's been legitimately...oh wait, I forgot about the whole "These guys can steal Bankais so let me use mine". Never mind.

As for Kenpachi, you have to at some point not be "full retard" in order to go "full retard". That said, the only think he does stupid in fights is go up against people stronger than him. So far it hasn't been terminal...

Oh yeah. That. Shit, you know Kubo is messing up when even the smartest character in-universe goes full retard. Rose is arguably not a good example, since nobody could've seen Mask's next move coming.

No, but unlike Rukia, those two got the chance to actually do something USEFUL after they got their power ups, and got to shake off some of their low status (atleast for the moment)... Not Rukia though... even when given a rare and incredible power up she still has to deal with Damsel in distress status. Very sad for a character who is supposed to be considered one of our main characters. What was even the point of giving her any power up at all if she's just gonna be a waste of panel time and used to do nothing more than power up her brother? Heck we already KNOW that this particular villian is a lot more powerful than Byakuya; we don't need Rukia to reinforce that idea. Might aswell just skip to the part where she gets damseled; atleast then we wouldn't have been expecting her to do something.

She pretty much is the krillin of the series...
Chad would be the yamcha.
