Agreed. But sadly not happening any time soon.

Ona related note, where did Yachiru go? Did he go and find some of the others to "kill"?

She is probably going to pop up at some random point during the upcoming battle to keep #2 from getting between Buckbeard and Ken-chan. Expect her to pwn him utterly.

Destroyed by Mayuri and the rest of Division 12 in order to offset the effect of the souls the Quincy destroyed.

You'd think they could just have sent them to some other dimension to achieve the same thing. Or... just resurrected the bastards.

If he is to die off-screen then Kubo would have to kill at least half of the Sternritters with him. Nothing short of that will satisfy the readers. But that's not happening anyway. Ken-chan's is too important to die off-screen.

on a sidenote: what happened to the two bodies from Szayel's lab? iirc Kubo said they would be of high importance later on, but I'm not sure if my brain is making things up about this

Anyway, likely the other guy will interrupt while Buckbeard goes on to look for Aizen.
It seems he sliced him half way down.......and not clean in half...

But he only looked scratched and not cut into half (neither halfway down nor halfway to the back) either.

The translation may have something to do with it too, I remember it saying that Berenice had her throat ripped out and another said it was merely slit - yet her corpse didn't really reflect it.

speaking of translations, mpanda's version says that Berenice is female while the mstream translation says that Berenice is a male *tehe*

whatever the case, I hope Kubo won't switch back to HM as I really wanna see the fight between Yamamoto and Overkill since I wanna see his former lieutenant's bankai in action

also I don't think Kubo is mad enough to make Ken-chan loose....off-screen D:

Solid flashback chapter. Good emotion, and great WTFPWN-age at the end.

I very much liked this chapter, but i could have done without the flashback. But if there was no flashback, then it would have been another too-fast paced action chapter. Am now confused

That was... a real Overkill. Like expected.

P.S. Btw, chapter name - "before the shadows" (at least in the translation that I've read).
Does that mean that next week we'll see Kenpachi fight vs that boss, since he's the one wielding this "shadow" power?

I agree. I thought I'd be disappointed since the story is hopping around a bit between viewpoints, but this was a nice read and a bad ass final page. It's one of those scenes that would be sweet to see animated.

Chapters like this help make Bleach's lesser used characters more than a footnote and really helps to flesh out the universe. Was he an important character for plot? Not especially, since we never really saw him do anything. But here we see that he was important to the characters, and through him we learn a little more about the bigger characters, like Yamamoto.

Sure beats the random "I'm a villain who just got killed, here's my sad story" flashbacks. Those feel like forced attempts at storytelling. So far this arc is a huge improvement over HM.
