Ehh...I don't think the wrestler will win against the two captains. Because unlike Shinji, I think Kensei and Rose will actually use their vizard abilities to end this. And we still have to see Rose's bankai.

Eh, a vizard getting panel time....to just get one-shotted,.Kensei is okay, never really did care much about the Vizards tbqh.

Then again, panel time screws most of Bleach's characters to the point I can't really like nor hate most of them :/.

Talking about Kensei's bankai did we ever get an explanation to what happened to his fight against the kid arrancar? Did the kid escape... or did the kid beat him?

Did you guys actually read the chapter, or did you just scan the synopsis? Shuuhei was out until after Kensei "defeated" Armstrong Mask. Kensei actually acknowledged this when Shuuhei started talking to him ("Did you finally wake up?"). When Shuuhei was awake earlier in the chapter, he was knocked back out before Shuuhei (and the readers) knew the Captains were on the scene. At no point before he finally did, could Shuuhei have warned the two Captains.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out. This was the best chapter in a while.

Kubo is at his best when dealing with goofy villains, and he's very effectively removed Shuuhei, Ikkaku, and Yumichika's "embarrassing" offscreen defeat last week and set up an upcoming "push" opportunity for Shuuhei.

Fair enough, I had read it, but I had only noticed Hisagi get knocked down. I hadn't noticed that he was knocked out.

that says a lot. obviously everyone has their own opinion, but really? it seems like people who like wrestling really liked this chapter, but that's so simplistic. the personalities and powers of these shitritters are so varied and random that it's laughable. let's say for instance that you really liked surfing. if a shitritter broke out a surf board and started surfing on a reishi-made board all over the place saying stuff like 'cowabunga' would that be the best chapter in a while as well?

So I guess Hisagi is back to being an imbecile again, or does he get a pass on this one?

Agreed, some, like Bam-bam, make sense when you think of the power that Ishida displayed when he went 'Super' back in the SS arc, but these other ones are just so WTF. While Bankais are random, we at least know what they are; Bankais. These Shitter powers seem to have jack to do with Quincies, so what the hell are they supposed to be? It seems jack decided to say, "F' it, I'm out."

I'm wondering if we're ever going to get an explanation as to how they stole Bankais, but I'm not waiting with bated breath.

The abilities being random are pretty much a given...we don't have to look too far back that each of the Espada's were supposed to represent something, which really was pointless.

At least the ability makes sense from where it's taken from and is even enforced when Kensei said that the fight made him look like a villain.

now you just sound bitter but my first question would be "does he look like the Silver Surfer?"

The only thing that really bugged me about the chapter was how did Hisagi know the source of Superstar's power?

Well the Espadas' abilities had an explanation. They were Hollows that had gained Shinigami-like power, the reverse of the Vizards that were Shinigamis that had gained Hollow-like power. So the Espadas' abilities were based on the idea of a Zanpakuto's release, similar to a Bankai.

The Shitters have had zero explanation as to what their powers are supposed to be. Hell, even the absurdly random Fullbringers had more explanation than the Shitters do.

The Espada's abilities had an explanation, but what each of them represented meant nothing. (Stark's Lonliness, Halibel's Sacrifice, etc...)

The Shitritter's abilities are random that come w/ a explanation, but what it has to do w/ being a Quincy is something that's more than likely not going to be answered even though all we really knew about Quincies before was that their main weapons were bows and arrows...and never was there even hinted at the possibility of some hierarchy, much less someone as powerful as Bach...

...there really should be more background information for this

I think it fitted their characters pretty well, except Nnoitra...but the others had their aspect of death directly related to their personalities.

So far, I see it as a special mod to their innate reishi manipulation power...but if LuchaRitter is getting stronger because he is absorbing the vibrations of the spiritual sound that comes from the audience, I'm dropping this!

I think I stopped caring about the powers when Tsukishima affected the memories of rocks...

Good chapter, I didn't see that coming, I though that lucha quincy was simply going to get a vollstandig after that blow. I hope that Kensei and Rose aren't done yet, it would be humillianting for them to be defeated that way.

Oh, that's obvious. It was done so that we wouldn't know they needed to take out the little guy. Kubo should have figured out a better way to show Shuuhei attacking. Maybe have the little guy riding on Mask's shoulders, or having jumped out of the way. If you want to give Shuuhei an in-universe reason, maybe he was confused (just regained consciousness), or he was planning to stall Mask until he could find an opening to cheap shot the little guy (stalling has been shown to work very well in this series).

Except that he was quite able to give the revelation when he regained consciousness with the captains there.

As for a cheap shot, those are usually best done when you don't try to draw attention to yourself. Case in point, attacking a big brute while he isn't even paying attention to you in the first place.

i think the espada powers made much more sense than these shitritters. they weren't perfect, but they were pretty close to their personalities and they were all fairly serious and believable in the bleach universe. only with fullbring and the VR have we seen completely outlandish unbelievable out of place nonsense powers and personalities

mr. satan made perfect sense as a wrestler. superstar and this ridiculous power make no sense to me

i was more bugged by us finding out what it was

Wrestling is kind of ridiculous to begin with

Spoiler for Case in point :p:


Hulk Hogan draws on the power of all the Hulkamaniacs when he's in trouble. John Cena draws the power of the fans in the WWE Universe Though I will admit the power would make more sense if it was more than one person cheering for Superstar.
