Bleach 674

Aaron Johnson
Aaron Johnson

What do you guys think will happen next chapter? Will we see the two dads in action? Or will we go back to the Yhwach fight?

Will Orihime finally be able to stop Ichigo's rain? Or will it be up to Rukia to once again save the day?

Whats left to discuss? Seems like by this point in the week every Bleach discussion will inevitably devolve into shipper flame wars.

Landon Martinez
Landon Martinez

I think one of the more interesting things to discuss is the rain that is falling. This proves that he really wasn't able to get over the death of his mother, no matter how much time has passed.
Once again the rain is falling, even after all the character development he has had? I wonder if he'll be able to stop it himself, or if it has to be someone else like usual.

Nicholas Bell
Nicholas Bell

Forgot the picture of the rain.

Aaron Adams
Aaron Adams

It's also getting heavier and heavier as the fight goes on. I wonder if it'll cause him to drown.

Matthew Carter
Matthew Carter

Let's discuss bleach's future then.

Can't even break 300K in a full week, souma and bnha are also about to surpass it.

Vol 72
7 days) 294,275
14 days) 357,154

Atleast nisekoi, toriko and gintama are ending, so bleach will trample over their corpses and keep going I guess.

Brody Walker
Brody Walker

im not sure about this page containing any rain. we know whats going to happen though, right?

Ichigo isnt going to do his job correctly. Rukia will show up and give motivation.
Twist and/or suffering occurs. Orihime finally does something, and the manga ends with some gay shit.

Jack Reyes
Jack Reyes

manga ends with some gay shit.
implying it's close to ending

Elijah Jackson
Elijah Jackson

It's honestly not selling as bad as it used to. Plus, it will inevitably get a sales boost if the anime comes back (if the manga is still running at that point)

Alexander Diaz
Alexander Diaz

im not sure about this page containing any rain
I guess it's a stretch, but the rain is still falling. I just wonder if we're going to stay on the Ichigo and Yhwach fight. I really hope we are.

Speaking of this, when was the last time that Bleach was #1? It would have been more than a year ago, right?

Camden Sullivan
Camden Sullivan

still thinking Jump rankings matter
2016

Eh

Landon Kelly
Landon Kelly

Of course they don't matter much. Still, it's still an interesting way to gauge popularity.

Julian Perry
Julian Perry

Ichigo's shikai if not random transformation

Brayden Howard
Brayden Howard

I think Bakuman's criticism of the ranking system was fair. Also it's heavily influenced by the editorial department.

Lucas Bennett
Lucas Bennett

Okay, so let's go by sales. When was the last time Bleach was #1?

Samuel Hughes
Samuel Hughes

For what purpose?

Jordan Gutierrez
Jordan Gutierrez

For what purpose?
To gauge popularity. It'll be interesting to see when Bleach was last on the top? Plus better sales could lead to the anime returning.

Dylan Morales
Dylan Morales

I can assure you the question you're asking and the answer you're looking for are entirely unrelated.

Jacob Collins
Jacob Collins

Volume 18 (16-4-2012)
1. Bleach
2. One Piece
3. Naruto

After this the bleach anime ended and rankings plummeted almost permanently into the bottom for some reason.

The last good rating

Volume 16 (1-4-2013)
1. Toriko
2. Bleach

Nolan Young
Nolan Young

entirely unrelated.
I think those two things have a decent correlation. Why don't they?

Levi Green
Levi Green

Volume 16 (1-4-2013)
1. Toriko
2. Bleach
That's honestly impressive, I don't think I ever remember Toriko being #1. I wonder what this arc will have to do in order to bring its popularity back up.

Daniel Peterson
Daniel Peterson

for some reason.
I think you answered your own question, user. Having an anime running does well for sales. Regardless, it's been four years since it broke #1.
That really makes you think.

Asher Young
Asher Young

Try using critical thinking?

Ian Nelson
Ian Nelson

That really makes you think.
About...?

Jeremiah Nguyen
Jeremiah Nguyen

Try using critical thinking?
Usually when something sells better than every rival product, it is popular. Apparently, this is the wrong line of thinking. Care to help me out?

Jaxson Cooper
Jaxson Cooper

That Bleach has declined sharply in popularity. I wonder what would have happened if Bleach ended after Aizen was imprisoned and Kubo went and created a followup story.

Carson Martin
Carson Martin

You've lost me. What does that have to do with the anime coming back again?

Adrian Hughes
Adrian Hughes

That Bleach has declined sharply in popularity.

Yet the volume sales are consistently high and is in no danger of cancellation. So once again, your point is...?

Ayden Fisher
Ayden Fisher

I think you mean "if the anime had continued".

Luis Ward
Luis Ward

To see if Bleach could have kept its popularity. I'm not saying that Bleach will be cancelled, it would be interesting to see how successful a epilogue story would have been.
He could still do it, but Bleach has had its popularity declined already.

Dominic Smith
Dominic Smith

The anime couldn't have continued. It's hard when Kubo's chapters don't really have that much substance to them. Well, the anime could have continued if they produced more shitty filler.

Landon Kelly
Landon Kelly

Still not entirely sure what popularity has to do whatsoever with the topic at hand.

Evan Flores

Ulquiorra returns because Ichigo is the only guy left standing who isn't with his boyfriend.

William Morris
William Morris

Ulquiorra returns because Ichigo is the only guy left standing who isn't with his boyfriend.
Would he even help them? He pretty much never moved without an order from Aizen.

Brody Bell
Brody Bell

what popularity has to do
I'll explain myself for you, user. The popularity of Bleach has decreased dramatically in this last arc. Instead of having this arc, what would have happened if Kubo ended the story at the previous arc and instead started a new series / epilogue to Bleach.

I was just curious if that series would be able to reclaim Bleach's old popularity.

Matthew Murphy
Matthew Murphy

He found out what the heart meant. He'd do anything to help Orihime.

Luis Rodriguez
Luis Rodriguez

Why is popularity important to you, user? Are you the type who can only enjoy something if others think it's popular? That's why I'm confused.

Dylan Bailey
Dylan Bailey

It's just interesting to me to see how Bleach can get back into the good graces of the common folk.

Benjamin Thompson
Benjamin Thompson

the common folk

You mean elevens? The ones who make up the vast majority of its volume sales?

Grayson Turner
Grayson Turner

Normal people.

Josiah Sullivan
Josiah Sullivan

to be fair, bleach's fillers usually are better than other series' filler, and occasionally work well into the story thanks to kubo;s input.

Jace Campbell
Jace Campbell

Subtle

Carson Perry
Carson Perry

The popularity of Bleach has decreased dramatically in this last arc.

Not really, bleach went on the decline since aizen was defeated in the anime.
The anime ending and taking a big break is a good thing, gives everyone some breathing room.

Isaiah Taylor
Isaiah Taylor

Right, and it has only decreased further since then.
Some of the filler has been really shit though.

Parker Anderson
Parker Anderson

shipper flame wars.
Last thread was pretty good. We even had some comfy discussion about Renji and Rukia.

Robert Hughes
Robert Hughes

I think that the Rukia stopped the rain scene may not have been him getting over his mother's death but getting over his involvement in it, like Rukia with Kaien.
The rain may have started again because Yhwach is now showing him that, it's not true that it wasn't his fault.

Isaac Harris
Isaac Harris

So, who will stop the rain?

Jeremiah Martin
Jeremiah Martin

I still have some hope for my OTP.

Jack Brooks
Jack Brooks

They would be a cute couple, especially with their personalities. I'm fine with this ship as long as Ishida doesn't dissect her on the operating table.

Matthew Cook
Matthew Cook

Orihime is soul kings Heart.

Nathan Reed
Nathan Reed

Gerard is.

Austin Bell
Austin Bell

Right, and it has only decreased further since then.

Kind of hard to make an aging manga more popular without an anime to advertise it. But considering volume sales still top the charts it's far from obscurity.

Brody Smith
Brody Smith

I've always enjoyed their interactions and Orihime is much more cute and likeable when she's with Ishida than when she's repeating "Kurosaki-kun" at Ichigo.

Jonathan Bell
Jonathan Bell

This is wishful thinking but want Ichigo to get over it himself. Have a scene during the fight where Ichigo finally realizes if he lives in the past he'll never be able to protect his friends and family. Again it's wishful thinking

inb4 Orihime's useless again

I'm hope she's useful to the point where Yhwach sees no other choice but to attack her directly.

Jaxon Martin
Jaxon Martin

Not him, but Askin did say it was just a rumor.

Evan Russell
Evan Russell

top the charts
That's a little generous, user.

Christian Hall
Christian Hall

I'm hope she's useful to the point where Yhwach sees no other choice but to attack her directly.
I think that would be better for Ichigo. He'd realize that him getting overly angry will only endanger the people he currently cares about.

I just hope both Ichigo and Orihime get meaningful character development in this fight.

Austin Morales
Austin Morales

There's not much to specifically suggest it's Orihime instead, so I'm going with that.

Ryder Gonzalez
Ryder Gonzalez

Oh, I wasn't implying it was Orihime, I was just saying that we don't know for sure that he's the heart of the Soul King. There might be a very slight possibility that Orihime is one of the legs of the Soul King.

Austin Cook
Austin Cook

That's true, though I'd be more inclined to believe the legs would be Yoruichi and Kukaku, Yoruichi being the obvious choice and Kukaku being the head of another former high Noble family.

Landon Perez
Landon Perez

Why is everyone just focusing on the legs? There might be other organs and body parts. I'm convinced Gremmy will be his brain. And I find the idea funny that Giselle made a contract with his dick.

James Jenkins
James Jenkins

I'm hope
I meant I hope

I just hope both Ichigo and Orihime get meaningful character development in this fight.
It's almost a certain Ichigo get some positive development in one way or the other now that his dad's on the scene. However I have no idea what the author plans do for Orihime because we were literally shown scenes where Orihime wanted to protect Ichigo but couldn't before the fight began. I can only see her going too far in protecting "Kurosaki-kun" now that she sees Ichigo is fighting blind.

Luke Richardson
Luke Richardson

I want Ichigo to calm down and go all freudian samurai poet (as he did it before, on Tensa Zangetsu and Gin ) on Yuwabach. And ask him why does he want to kill Ichigo now, even though the Yuwabach from 1000 years wanted Ichigo to live. I think he could manage to guiltrip him if he goes about this the right way.
Unless os course this fight is just another trial to ensure Ichigo reaches the peak of his strength and becomes the new ruler of both the spiritual world, and the real world.

Matthew Perry
Matthew Perry

I don't think they will get together, Uryuu is pretty much set to become the next Quincy king. I don't think he would want to force Orihime into the new Quincy empire. Though I don't think Ichihima or Ichiruki will happen either,

Elijah Myers
Elijah Myers

Orihime wanted to protect Ichigo but couldn't before the fight began. I can only see her going too far in protecting "Kurosaki-kun" now that she sees Ichigo is fighting blind.
She has protected Ichigo in this fight, it's just hard to fully protect him when he's running past her shield. I just hope she says more than Kurosaki-kun. This is probably going to be her last fight, I hope there is at least some development.

Adrian Campbell
Adrian Campbell

Isn't him being the heart the best way to explain why he's that strong and still alive?
How many pieces of the soul king is still missing?

Dylan Sullivan
Dylan Sullivan

Unlikely. We have seven days left and since the fathers will take the spotlight very soon, Orihime is out of danger. I'm more worried about Isshin, since he will probably fight Yhwach and I don't think Yhwach will deactivate the Almighty again.

Jaxon Ross
Jaxon Ross

Abandoned and forgotten...

Christian Bennett
Christian Bennett

If it turns out that the sword of the Ise family was repsonsible, then I would say there are eight body parts since the sword disperses the power of a god into all eight (wind) directions. Though I'm not sure if the main body Ichigo killed counts as a body part.

Tyler Ward
Tyler Ward

We don't really know how many pieces there are. We can be certain that the SK has two legs, so we are at least missing the left/right leg.

Eli Wright
Eli Wright

She has protected Ichigo in this fight, it's just hard to fully protect him when he's running past her

Yes user this is what I mean, Ichigo is clearly not in the right state of mind to fight in a tag team, so there's a chance Orihime will go the extra limb to protect him, even from himself. Similar to how she did in pic related.

Tyler Hill
Tyler Hill

Orihime is out of danger.
I don't think she is quite out of danger yet. Isshin, Ryuken, Rukia, and Renji are both still somewhat far away from the fight. I think Ichigo will still be fighting with Orihime for at least one more chapter.

Joseph Perry
Joseph Perry

no.

Jose Thompson
Jose Thompson

Similar to how she did in pic related.
Oh, I don't even remember that. That's actually surprising.

I just hope she's able to retain her composure this time and actually do something. Last chapter she tried putting up a shield, but Ichigo just ran past her. Hopefully she's a little more proactive this time.

Andrew Bell
Andrew Bell

When he returns to save her it's going to redeem this entire shitshow.

Matthew Roberts
Matthew Roberts

Yhwach will deactivate the Almighty again.
I don't think Yhwach has activated the Almighty yet. Although, the last chapter has deliberately avoided showing his eyes, so who knows.

Adam Jackson
Adam Jackson

When he returns to save her
Nothing would make me happier. I know people don't really like asspulls, but I would love this. I don't even care how Kubo would explain him being alive, I just want to see him alive.

Elijah Russell
Elijah Russell

Isshin
At least he'll provide some comedic relief before dying. Kubo seems to be a fan of his, especially with Hitsugaya. Maybe Isshin will comment on Orihime's clothing, that'd be amusing.

Ryan Morgan
Ryan Morgan

They're still pretty far away and there's still a chance they'll come across Byakuya and Hitsugaya. There's also Ishida fighting someone on Yhwach's level, I doubt they'll skip over that if they're heading up the tower. There's still plenty of time for something for Orihime to do something effective or ineffective. She's not out of danger until we see someone outside the door to the room.

Jeremiah Rodriguez
Jeremiah Rodriguez

he said in the last chapter that he is not using his power yet cause he wants to really enjoy the fight with Ichigo

Owen Sullivan
Owen Sullivan

I meant, it's unlikely that he won't use the Almighty unlike with Ichigo. Should have worded that better.

Cooper Butler
Cooper Butler

Fucking speedreaders

David Taylor
David Taylor

I think Ryuken and Isshin are in the some portal that Bazz-B, Giselle and Liltotto used. So if that's the case, they should be around the staircase where Bazz-B and Haschwalth fought. And the chapters are already called father. I don't think it will take more than two for Isshin to arrive.

Henry Bennett
Henry Bennett

Maybe Isshin will comment on Orihime's clothing, that'd be amusing.

Has Isshin even met her since her brother's accident? Whenever she went over their house Kubo didn't show the family.

Benjamin Ramirez
Benjamin Ramirez

That could be the case. Who knows, it's hard to keep track of the landscape of the reshaped palace.

Hudson James

I think there's a chance but its far from certain.

James Perez

met her since her brother's accident
Twice. Once was when he invited them to hang out with him and the other was during the FB arc.

Nolan Rogers
Nolan Rogers

What's more likely, father/father and son/son tag team or Kurosaki and Ishida tag team?

Justin Watson
Justin Watson

Ishida / Ryuken is going to fight Haschwalth to the death.

Lincoln Ramirez
Lincoln Ramirez

Well it's not like the female Quincy would fit Uryuu. One is a rude preteen, two are skeletons, one is a pscho zombie and one is a fucked-up psycho lesbian.

Hunter Rogers
Hunter Rogers

Maybe Ryuken will let him go ahead in order to help save Orihime/Ichigo. It isn't the first time he's helped his son out.

Dylan Allen
Dylan Allen

implying he isn't going to fuck Nemu

Benjamin Myers
Benjamin Myers

I think it's more likely that Isshin and Ryuken will tell their sons to escape from Wahrwelt alongside their friends, so that they can train more for the invasion. Is probably the reason for Rukia and Renji to go to Ichigo, so that they also can escape. I wonder though if they would take Bazz-B, Giselle and Liltotto with them, since the three are also in the throne room.

Carter Cruz
Carter Cruz

...?
Rude Preteen I get.
But, two are skeletons? I assume psycho zombie is Bambi. No clue who fucked up pscho lesbian is.
But for the record, I think they stated that the Power girl was still alive.

Truly a great father.

Eli Gonzalez

Very friendly reminder.

Jackson Butler
Jackson Butler

Meninas and Candice were killed by the Auswahlen according to Bazz-B. It's unlikely they wouldn't have joined Giselle and Liltotto otherwise.

Giselle is the psycho lesbian. Whether Giselle is a boy or girl doesn't really matter if she identifies as a girl. There actually several Yuri about people like Giselle. Though after what happened with Hitsugaya, I'm not sure anymore if Yumichika is actually correct.

Jason Jones
Jason Jones

"rub it in" isn't quite right.
He was simply reminding ichigo that he can't act like he used to, since he doesn't have the power to do anything about it.
It was the right thing to do.

Gavin Harris
Gavin Harris

Giselle is a zombie and Liltotto's wounds aren't even severe. Shunsui has much worse wounds. Bazz-B is more unlikely, but I think the three traitor Quincy will survive. It's unlikely that Uryuu will be the last Quincy again. And I can't imagine that the next seven days will only be about five Quincy.

Ethan Sanders
Ethan Sanders

Good. She only had depth in the anime.

Easton Allen

Or he is going to implant Nemu's brain into the next infant. Though if Mayuri could make Nemu with just her brain, what would happen if he got his fingers on Gremmy? Didn't he have such a machine in the movies?

Zachary Parker
Zachary Parker

he posted it again

Everytime you post this picture user I question what Orihime is supposed to be eating. It looks like a paper bag.

Andrew White
Andrew White

Giselle is a lesbian
listen, if we're talking about Ishida chosing a quincy queen, Giselle isn't in the debate because he's male.
It's not about him identifying as female. It's about him not being able to reproduce with Ishida.

As for Meninas and Candice dying in the auswahlen, you're going to have to remind me when Bazz-B said that. Meninas was taken out but not killed by Liltotto.

Carter Parker
Carter Parker

Wait, what cellphone?

Charles Rodriguez
Charles Rodriguez

Or he is going to implant Nemu's brain into the next infant.
Nemu's brain is nearly the size of an entire infant.
You can't transplant an adult brain into something smaller than an adult skull.
Well maybe a late teen skull, but certainly not a child, let alone infant.

William Ramirez
William Ramirez

The art is shit, I guess it's supposed to be bread.

Liam Wood
Liam Wood

After it turned out that the petals don't mean the Bankai disappears, I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that Yumichika was wrong for a bigger surprise. But I don't have any proof for that. It's just my gut feeling. And that I think that after all the weird bodies the Sternritter had, Giselle just being male would be boring.

When Bazz-B talked with Haschwalth, he called the Auswahlen a massacre. And that everyone who got caught died. He spoke in plural, so Robert wasn't the only victim. But then again we don't know who the eight victim was.

Ryan Gutierrez
Ryan Gutierrez

I don't see anything wrong with this bread. It does look like the shit people call bread outside of continental western europe.

wierd bodies
Giselle reshapes flesh.
It's highly likely giselle is biologically male but just reshaped his penis into a vagina.
still not female in terms of genetics, which is what's important for procreation.

Andrew Rodriguez
Andrew Rodriguez

That's true, the entire arc was about making Ichigo like an outsider without powers. It probably wasn't his intention but it did come across a bit condescending. It's probably how it was translated that makes it seem that way to me.

Juan Morales
Juan Morales

I don't think you've ever eaten bread.

Josiah Lee
Josiah Lee

She wants the dick. Didn't Mayuri lick her vagina or something to heal her back in Mexico?

Thomas Cox
Thomas Cox

I'm going with the theory that Giselle can change his/her sex in certain intervalls or for certain tasks during the zombification. Or that he/she can be both male and female. And what Giselle's true sex is will be a mystery forever. Not much proof, but does fit the symbolism very well.

Blake Cox
Blake Cox

I just hope Giselle is alive. All of his/her interactions were fun.

Landon Roberts

Will Orihime finally be able to stop Ichigo's rain? Or will it be up to Rukia to once again save the day?
Why do you think it'll be either when Isshin is traditionally one to resolve things in regards to his mother?

Hudson Gonzalez
Hudson Gonzalez

ulq had a piece of yhwach's soul in him

Yhwach will take his ulq memories and give him a new body, Ichigo charges to fight him but orihime blocks it and goes with ulq.

Make it happen Kubo.

Dominic Carter

Why do you think it'll be either when Isshin is traditionally one to resolve things in regards to his mother?

Now it's up to someone new
Ichigo is facing off against the true murderer of Misaki. It can't be anyone else.

Elijah Gutierrez
Elijah Gutierrez

Okay here's some more

ulq had the whole heart and nihilism theme, so maybe Hell already sent him into soul society cause he was a good guy when he died

ichigo or orhime absorbed ulq since they have quincy/soul king related powers

ginjo will use his soul materialization powers and revive him accidentally

aizen's hogyoku revives ulq cause of orihime's strong desire

Ulq's soul was able to partly reassemble his form as a plus, because he'd found a reason to exist. But his form is still unstable, and she has to choose between bringing him back the rest of the way and protecting Ichigo.

Ethan Wright
Ethan Wright

Wow, it's still going.
I honestly stopped at about the time where Ichigo and grimmjow were fighting in Hueco Mundo.
I'm legit interested in what's happened but I just don't have time to read or watch hours of fillers. Can someone give me a tl;dr on what's happened?

We still have Aizen left and at this point it's not an absolute stretch that Urahara might become a villain

Just read it user. Anyone can spoil it for you but without reading it for yourself you'll remain unsatisfied. Bleach is far from perfect but without reading it yourself you'll end up strung to someone else's bias.

Well where's the best place to read it online? I just really don't want to watch the anime again. It was good for a while to me but it just slowly started deteriorating in quality as more filler was added

Can she actually move in her bankai form?

Thomas Phillips
Thomas Phillips

There's tons of free online readers, just pick one that still has licensed series.

Joshua Murphy
Joshua Murphy

The implication is 'no', at least not in it's initial state. She's learned some sort of reishi manipulation in her Shikai; perhaps with some training that may extend to her Bankai form.

David Perry
David Perry

No point in the outfit change if it's just a single nuke attack.

Bentley Wilson
Bentley Wilson

There's no way to tell. We literally never saw her bankai in action, we only saw the aftermath and the activation.

Camden Smith
Camden Smith

We'll see it when she uses it against Yhwach. She'll move when her dead body falls to the ground and shatters into a million pieces.

Leo Lopez
Leo Lopez

Kubo literally does not have the balls to kill off Rukia. He can barely even kill off fodder.

Nicholas Clark

one less annoying character, kek. But it'd never happen. 99% of all the good guys will live, we all know it :(

Charles Reyes
Charles Reyes

That was before he got on twitter. All of the hate has been building up inside of him for way too long. He's going to take it all out at once on Rukiafags. It's okay, I'll be here for you when it happens.

Joshua Diaz
Joshua Diaz

The outfit change is obviously to accent her beauty (yuki-onna theme) as well as showing how delicate her frozen body is in that state. Right now it's still just a one-hit-kill move, but perhaps she will learn to control her Bankai properly after a few years of training.

Colton Evans
Colton Evans

Kubo loves Rukia though user. He considers her the protagonist of the shinigami side. And no, even in this arc he can't bring himself to kill anyone off.

Christopher Gutierrez
Christopher Gutierrez

Like, the only three persons in the Shinigami side who really died are Unohana, Yamamoto and the guy with Long White Hair I cannot remember the name.
Unohana was merely there to be a plot device to make Kenpachi stronger, she wasn't an important charact.
Yamamoto was old as fuck, killing him was okay.
The White Haired dude, I think his name is Utikate, I'm certain never did anything in the series outside of being the Right Arm of the Soul King and in the end all he managed to do was give more power to Yhwach. He was so irrelevant Kubo couldn't even bother to show his Bankai before killing him and I'm not certain we ever saw his shikai.

David Walker
David Walker

It's a good thing you have faith. However, faith will only get you so far.

Isaiah Smith
Isaiah Smith

I don't think it actually works like that. I think it's just that when she activated it for the first time it also did a normal attack, just like how Ichigo's first bankai activation also did a getsuga.

Rukia can still move and manipulate her body via Reishi even when her Shikai has complete frozen her body into a state of clinical death.
Don't want to be the guy who throw out dumb theories, but doesn't that sound eerily reminiscent of the Quincy's 'Heavenly wind-puppet' technique?

During SS all the power Ichigo gained was for Rukia's sake alone.
During HM Ichigo's continued expansion of power was proved to be Ichigo's innate desire to fight rather than for Orihime's sake.

Don't want to be the guy who throw out dumb theories, but doesn't that sound eerily reminiscent of the Quincy's 'Heavenly wind-puppet' technique?

Reishi Manipulation is a Quincy technique in general but Rukia did learn it while in the Royal Realm so its possible she learned it from someone in the Royal Guard. We saw only a fraction of her training there.

Jordan Peterson
Jordan Peterson

I sort of liked the way Kubo did it because it gave this feeling of Sasakibe and Yamamoto being part of this very old and forgotten story that was never told because it's not the focus of the manga, but nevertheless that they were rich characters both. It's like "oh that guy I never really thought about was actually a character", and it kind of puts things in perspective. Because very few people were still alive in soul Society would could relate to Yamamoto's rage.

Of course she would be scared. The only reason Ichigo was like that was because of her. Not only did he try to come and save her, but she also couldn't heal/protect him. It's only natural for her to be scared / mind fucked.

That was Ichigo's hollow side protecting Ichigo during the lust only when we saw him talking or thinking was that Ichigo himself.

user this part wasn't even her fault, after seeing her doubt Ichigo hurt him during Grimmjow fight she decided to believe in him and got her hopes completely crushed. She couldn't even heal him well enough. Her mind was gone during this scene.

your body
your power
they were never yours to begin with

his body is human
Ywach has no control over this
his soul is shinigami, hollow, and quincy all amalgamated into one
two of those are beyond Ywach's own reach--in the sense that while he can impact them, he cannot control them nor are they of his domain

On one final point, it bears mentioning that we possibly are not aware of what Zangetsu's real ability is. Everything up to this point, has been a misrepresentation of ability. Ichigo always a very strong spiritual being, but we know for a fact that Shinigami powers can change if they change owners.

This has happened, potentially, with Zaraki Kenpachi and Tousen where he took upon the blade of his fallen comrade. While the rain is of significance that it represents Ichigo's sorrow--it also bears mentioning that ONLY Ywach's shadow, in Ichigo's soul, states that he hates the rain.

At no point does Zangetsu, the real representation of his shinigami powers; and also his hollow powers, EVER, states that--that is the case for him.

Ywach's shadow hates the rain, maybe due to old memories where the real Ywach lost everything--where he was the only survivor of the shinigami purge of the Quincy race, and where at the end of his own battle, he was left alone to bury those he lost. That and whenever some character dies, there's ALWAYS rain involved.

Not realizing the moon parallel stopped meaning anything when it comes to Rukia

user Ichigo's called the black sun at times but Kubo usually represents him with a moon. The black sun and moon has nothing to do with Rukia anymore even if they have those matching covers.

Yhwach is having fun tormenting Ichigo for the time being so we have time to have Ichigo get over his Masaki issues and gain a new moon related power.

I'm reading your comments and literally getting cancer. user is explaining it to you so well, yet you still can comprehend that at the end of the day, popularity equals sales. Sales causes producers and publishers who Kubo essentially works for, to make sure the the manga keeps going to its full potential. Sales and popularity are what could inevitably be the deciding factor whether or not Bleachs anime comes back (or whether they should make Kubo rush the rest of the story out). How is this so hard to comprehend?

Landon Hall

I wasn't trying to say they'll end up together I just want it to be acknowledged they at the very least don't see each other as siblings.

Eye-fuck
Not, him realizing through Rukia's disappearance that he truly lost the power he worked so hard to gain.The very power that allowed him to see Rukia in the first place.
Not, watching Ichigo lose the very power he took so much pride in after he saved everyone and end up with nothing.
I'm okay with you ichirukifag I like this scene better without romantic undertones. Ichigo was literally losing the power he's had his entire life, to see ghosts and shinigami and etc. you see during the fullbring arc he literally breaks down into tears when losses his ability the second time. The beauty of this scene however is with or without romantic undertones it was emotional.

Henry Morris
Henry Morris

Kubo can be very good, if he would only try.

That should have been the ending of Bleach.

Wyatt Price
Wyatt Price

I forgot Kubo gave them matched outfits.
Fucking Kubo, just bring him back already. Orihime will need someone to confort her when Rukia wins the Ichigobowl.

Jaxson Evans
Jaxson Evans

It's not even that.
More like "bittersweet goodbye, knowing that they can say goodbye because Ichigo protected everyone, but still being sad it's goodbye for good"

You can't compare that to any RenRuki scene because the only time Renji had to say goodbye, he put on a brave face and Rukia ran away crying.
From the moment Ichigo gave Rukia to Renji and told him to never let go, even if he dies, Renji and Rukia never had to say goodbye to each other.

Ryder Miller
Ryder Miller

That should have been the ending of Bleach.
It was.
I forget the exact wording, but in an interview Kubo said that when he wasn't sure it was going to take off, he had an ending written in case Bleach got canned. He said he loved that ending and was glad he got to work it into the series even though it wasn't an ending anymore.
I think this was right before Byakuya arrived. I think the plan was that Ichigo would lose his powers fighting the big bad (which Kubo hadn't decided on yet) and that this is how the series would have ended.

Which is also why the Rukia shipping moments became so scarce after it. He didn't know what to do with her afterwards.

David Brown
David Brown

So, Rukia and Ichigo would have never ended up together?

Colton Hill
Colton Hill

We've had the most shippy moments since the power loss.

Ryder Martinez
Ryder Martinez

Like what? I guess it depends what you mean by shippy.

David Martinez
David Martinez

I forgot Kubo gave them matched outfits.
He didn't.
He gave a lot of characters winter outfits (which have scarves) but Orihime's outfit was in a stand alone image, and was a very different green, and was paired with white and pink/magenta where Ulquiorra's green is seafoam, paired with black.
He had just literally done the poll colorspread the week before the orihime one, and you can tell that shippers took it to mean something, but all the guys in the spread are wearing suit jackets (or in grimmjow's case a furry prince charles jacket) and all have scarves (except grimmjow, who has fur)
the doublebreasted jacket and scarf is a recurring winter clothing theme for kubo. Don't read too much into it, especially when they're not actually matching colors.

Logan Perez
Logan Perez

Brave Souls has over thirteen million players. Holy shit.

Adrian Cruz
Adrian Cruz

Soul Society arc did not have shippy moments other than the execution itself and their meeting on the bridge. The shipping mood was held up by the plot itself, saving Rukia, the struggle, their separate reactions, not their interactions.

With the Fullbring arc we got the Valentine's Day chapter of Ichigo cumming black swastikas while thinking about disappearing Rukia while Riruka talks about how Fullbring is actually the power of love. We got Rukia staring at the sky thinking about how amazing Ichigo is while he fights Ginjo. We got Ichigo and Rukia interacting in the hospital after the first Quincy Invasion.

Not even pre-SS arc had moments like that. There was only that once scene of Rukia looking at Ichigo after the Grand Fisher fight, and the abduction scene.

Gavin Bailey
Gavin Bailey

Ichigo and Rukia? Not at all. Unless you count her stabbing him with a sword while he cries like a baby as shipping...
Rukia has literally only been seen with Renji since the power return except for while she's fighting riruka (where he immediately carries her after she passes out) and As Nodt (where she immediately returns to him after she wins)

All the shippy moments were pre power loss.

Jeremiah Ramirez
Jeremiah Ramirez

I think the indication was that Ichigo wouldn't have ended up with anyone. Kubo would have left it open ended.
But then again, the pilot made it clear that Orihime was the love interest. There's no reason to think that still matters all these years later, but back then, when it was still so new, odds are he would have just defaulted Orihime into being "busty classmate turned girlfriend"

Nathan Sullivan
Nathan Sullivan

the pilot made it clear that Orihime was the love interest.

Orihime fucking died in the pilot.

Camden Murphy
Camden Murphy

and wasnt allowed to stay dead because Rukia fucked it all up.
Your point?

Jayden Stewart
Jayden Stewart

Exactly, it's alluding to what will happen in the Yhwach fight. She confesses her love to Ichigo as she lays dying.

Camden Garcia
Camden Garcia

That should have been the ending of Bleach
That would have made it a pretty cruel ending, granted I don't see it ending happily anyway but Ichigo felt like the most useless piece of shit with no powers it's a bit unfair to have only him kicked out of "that" world.
That scene was great because it's been their last goodbye for good moment.
Kubo has had Renruki side by side too much at this point. It's like the 40 years not seeing each other didn't matter especially when they do stuff in synch. I don't see emotional good-bye between them happening ever again because of that.

Isaiah Gonzalez
Isaiah Gonzalez

No, it's alluding to the fight with her brother, where her soul was put outside of her body.
Remember, her father was replaced with her brother, but pretty much everything else plot wise followed the same pattern.
And the pilot ended with her going back to being alive.

Kayden Hernandez
Kayden Hernandez

Every arc has ended with them being separated. When Renji and Byakuya take her away, when she decides to remain in Soul Society, and when Ichigo loses his powers.

Mason Gomez
Mason Gomez

As a writer myself I can assure you that the first female character is always the love interest. We project like there's no tomorrow. Rukia is Kubo's pixie dream girl.

At the same time, the manga will end with an open ending, leaning towards Rukia, because he's too much of a pussy to actually change the status quo of their platonic "will they won't they". It won't feel right to him. I can assure you of that too.

The shit he's doing with getting both Orihime and Rukia to Ichigo's location for the final closure is shit they even teach at school. It feeds the ratings and the sales and there's basically nothing else to it.

Nobody will even die.

Matthew Turner
Matthew Turner

It's like the 40 years not seeing each other didn't matter especially when they do stuff in synch.
Well, to be fair they've spent a LOT of time together, and both were pretty much fully developed personalities when they split.
Rukia goes back to soul society and has all her crimes waived and Ichigo already comments days after that if Rukia was missing, Renji was the only logical place she'd be off hiding with, unless she was apologizing to the shibas.
Then they have months together before the arrancars. Then they have 17 months together during the timeskip. They basically spent 2 years together before they got attached at the hip quite so heavily. Pretty easily to slide back into the way they were before the split, considering they grew up together.

I think before that, the only real sync moment was the tag team beatdown they gave Ichigo.

Jose Lopez
Jose Lopez

You're pushing meaninglessly, they grew up like siblings. as always the only people pushing this shit are those who want to get Rukia out of the way for Orihime to be able to accomplish impossible.

Oliver Davis

Kevin Barnes

Nothing new happened between Rukia and Renji that didn't already happen between them, including the loss of all their friends in Rukongai, joining the Shinigami, getting reckd by Aizen's hollows, etc. The story of the manga did not give them new dramatic depth that leads into fucking. There was only a reconciliation.

Thomas Roberts
Thomas Roberts

er, what?
We're talking about how Kubo writing them as being in synch with each other isn't odd considering their shared childhood, and that a lot of time has passed for them since they made amends.
And I'm also pointing out that the majority of the "in sych" behavior came, chronologically, much later, so they'd have ample time to adjust their relationship.

What is "pushing" about that?

William Hernandez
William Hernandez

that leads into fucking
no one's saying that.

Jaxson Phillips
Jaxson Phillips

very different shade of green
Porky please, nobody else has winter outfits that shade of green. If you want to argue against it being a shipping hint by Kubo, at least admit they're the same, but then counter it by saying it doesn't mean anything, because after all, they're just clothes, and maybe Kubo just likes that shade of green and used it on two different characters without meaning to.
You'd still be a delusional shipposter, but at least it wouldn't be as obvious.

Jason Nelson
Jason Nelson

Heh. Bulma *is* the love interest, and she got Toriyama's megaphone character all right. Kishi is the same with Sasuke and Sakura. You think the main character is who the manga begins with, and it rarely is. Bleach is actually a unique case there. Even Togashi's main character is Killua, when you look at it you know it. He's the one presented with the drama of curing Gon. Gon is an insert character designed for the readers. Naruto too.

And if you want to talk about Oda, he married a Nami cosplayer he met at a con, so right back at ya. The reason why One Piece doesn't have shipping is because he's not sexually frustrated.

Jaxon Bennett
Jaxon Bennett

That would have made it a pretty cruel ending
Definitely, but it was one of the biggest emotional moments of the series. There always could have been an epilogue chapter showing Ichigo getting his spirit awareness back bit by bit or Rukia rejoining his HS class since she's been assigned to Earth on a more-or-less permanent basis.

Henry Jackson
Henry Jackson

Toriyama flat out said he didn't know why people liked Vegeta, and only kept him around because the fans responded to him so well.
he said in several interviews he didn't like Vegeta.
It was only recently, after everything was done being written and now super focuses on a different side of Vegeta that he said he likes where Vegeta's character has gone, because Vegeta embraced earth culture more than Goku did, but that's it.

Stop projecting so much.

You think the main character is who the manga begins with, and it rarely is

I'm pretty sure NARUTO is the main character of NARUTO.
so right back at you
right back at what?

At what point did you get the idea I was arguing that the authors favorite girl is the girl that gets the MC in the end?

Caleb Foster
Caleb Foster

Rukia was missing, Renji was the only logical place she'd be off hiding with, unless she was apologizing to the shibas.
I forgot about that scene.
I guess Kubo meant for them to be very close if Ichigo for some reason deduced only after a month that if Renji didn't know Rukia's location no one else would.
They don't have to be fucking to be close. Them reconciling was something that actually would have happened anyways even without Ichigo's help. I don't understand what you mean by nothing new happened are you talking about the current arc?

Aaron Ortiz
Aaron Ortiz

10 year timeskip after the fight with Aizen
ichigo has a 7 year old child
"Hey, daddy, why is that short girl over there wearing funny black robes?"
Ichigo looks where the kid is pointing, and says "Rukia...?" but then frowns when he realizes he still can't see her
The kid chimes in. "She says... you can't see her? But... she looks happy"
Ichigo smiles "Thanks... Rukia"

would something like that make it better, or worse?

Brandon Hughes
Brandon Hughes

Then he's not self aware because Vegeta was the only one with a character arc in Z. But then again, he lost interest in his series pretty hard by the end of Z.

Nicholas Martin
Nicholas Martin

Who here team masochist? I've been reading bleach for like 8 years now and I didn't always hate it. However, I was getting kind of tired of it few months before Naruto ended.

Now every week I rush through the latest Bleach chapter with minimal interest and seemingly every week the story crawls at a pace slower than the original Inuyasha anime. I don't even remember the last fight Ichigo had. Feels like it was Aizen.

Pretty much after the series should have ended a 2nd time the series was forever bad in my eyes. I've come 674 chapters deep and I want to see it end but eh. Maybe someday I will forget forever.

Ethan Cruz
Ethan Cruz

Then he's not self aware because Vegeta was the only one with a character arc in Z
that doesn't have anything to do with being self aware.
and you might have misunderstood what I was saying.

I was saying when he was introduced, Vegeta wasn't intended to be a recurring hero character, and that he kept him because he was so popular. He didn't get why he was so popular, but he kept writing stories with him.
It wasn't until he turned him into a family man who still followed his saiyan pride that he actually liked him as a character.

This means the end of Z.

So he liked him by the end BECAUSE he had such character development, but he didn't understand why Vegeta got popular in the first place.

But he also didn't understand why Gohan didn't catch on in popularity.

Sometimes that's just how it goes with writing. You create a character but don't realize its going to be a hit.

Robert Cruz

Kubo just likes that shade of green
Actually depending on the scan Orihime's shade of green is more saturated you'd have to be colorblind not to notice but it doesn't matter because literally every color page had something green related, even Rukia's Valentine's page was her in green. Kubo felt very green during those months so there's no need to call out boogeyman when someone doesn't see it as special.

forgetting that Rukia felt Ichigo's reiatsu before even Byakuya
forgetting the bath scene
forgetting that Ichigo mentioned Rukia, but not Renji, when they re-entered RR
hello speedreader

Okay, none of these moments are much to talk about, I give you that. But nothing has changed. They still have a greater bond than anyone else.

KEK. Rukia's beloved onii-sama severed that bond long ago. Nowadays, Ichigo only appears with Orihime beside him and Rukia has become part of the comedy duo with Renji.

Keep telling that to yourself, jealous rukiafag. Just look at the amount of doujinshi and tell me who is more popular.

Angel Reyes

You're joking, aren't you?
Or just plain deluded.
For the longest time Rukia has always been the most popular Bleach female, just look at the poll results.
The only reason why Orihime is getting so much attention right now is because she's in the spotlight with Ichigo's fight against Yhwach.

Justin Rivera

Orihime wasn't in the latest poll because that was Shinigami only. I rember though that Rukia was first place with female Shinigami and Shinigami in general. Sui-feng was second with females and tied eleventh and twelth with Aizen. Third was Hinamori and 16th overall. Fourth Rangiku and 18th overall and fifth was Yoruichi and 20th overall.

Aaron Nguyen
Aaron Nguyen

With the Femritter the ranking should be roughly like that:
1. Giselle
2. Bambietta
3. Liltotto
4. Meninas
5. Candice

If fanart is an indication Giselle is the most popular Sternritter followed by Haschwalth and then Bambietta/Äs Nödt. Then Liltotto/Cang Du. Then Bazz-B/Askin and then Gremmy. And tenth would be BG9 I think. Nobody cares much for the other Sternritter.

polls
You mean those things polluted by fake votes?
It's doujinshi that's most accurate about popularity, since they reflect how willingly people will pay with their money.

Sebastian Reed
Sebastian Reed

I didn't get the results I wanted, it must be rigged!
Do you have any evidence to back that up?

Do you honestly believe doujinshi are the most accurate way of reflecting popularity for a goddamn shounen series?
Orihime obviously has much more sex appeal than that of Rukia, as a result she is much more marketable when it comes to doujinshi and the people that buy them.

You're a fucking idiot.

Believing in something which can be freely manipulated instead of something working according to the rule of supply and demand in real world
KEK. The counter example for you is Zero no Tsukaima. Louise has the similar physical appearance to Rukia and yet the amount of her doujinshi is the biggest among the heroines of that series.

Bulma *is* the love interest

Are you retarded? Or are you just backpedaling when you realized that Hinata, and Chi-Chi won the protagonist, and that they were more analogous to Orihime considering they all love the protagonist who is oblivious at first.

Besides Rukia isn't Kubo's favorite girl. If that really is what you're arguing there.

Grayson Garcia
Grayson Garcia

Again, you fail to cite any evidence that such a thing ever happened.
W-well it can happen! And the results don't represent my interests, so it must've been rigged disproportionately!
Please, if Orihime has more fans like you allege, whats stopping them from tipping the scales in their favor if polls are so easily manipulated?

But this other character from a completely unrelated series is getting lots of attention in doujinshi!
That doesn't mean anything, different series, different fans, besides Louise has a much more prominent role and is romantically invested in the male protagonist of said series, it's clear that she'd get much doujinshi attention to reflect that.
In comparison, there is no confirmed love either way between Ichigo and Rukia, but Orihime has on more than one occasion let the viewers know her feelings towards the MC, this is again heavily reflected in doujinshi production.

Honestly I like Orihime, but you must be seriously deluded if you think for one minute that she possess anything close to Rukia's popularity.

Oliver Jackson

Tatsuki
That's a pretty big downgrade from Gin desu.

Plus it's not new that Rangiku is seen as attractive to other characters. Hisagi and Iba both have seriously bad crushes on her.

Also if she would ever end up with another girl, it'd probably be Nanao since she called her sexy in the Bleach bootleg.

Matthew Wilson
Matthew Wilson

1. Rukia
2. Soifon
3. Hinamori
4. Rangiku
5. Yoruichi

Very good taste in that poll.

Lucas Smith
Lucas Smith

Hisgai's crush was added by the anime I think. Iba has never interacted with her yet. Manga omakes gave them a crush on Omaeda's sister actually. Nanao has more or less declared her love for Shunsui. There is a invasion to the world of the living and Karakura town will probably be the first stop. Things could happen there and Rangiku loves the human world.

Brandon Kelly
Brandon Kelly

No, Hisagi's crush is brought up whenever he shows up in bonus material like the chapter sketches that lead up to the top 11-20 snowball fight, he wants to learn guitar to impress he, or that when he locked himself in his office when she didn't like an article he wrote, and while Iba hasn't interacted with her it is Kubo's invention.

Is it true that Kubo adds more panels of Orihime whenever people hate on her just to spite them?

Connor Sanchez
Connor Sanchez

It's happened 3 times before, would it really matter to you if it happened again?

Wyatt Jackson
Wyatt Jackson

it was him and specifically his "hollow" powers getting stronger every time he used them. It was almost entirely a linear progression where he just added more stripes every time he made any noticable improvement, but then the stupid hollow fight with ulquiorra happened and Kubo just kinda tossed that shit out the window.

Jordan Taylor
Jordan Taylor

also this happened in the renji fight inbetween his two stripes following Urahara's training, and the 5 stripes when he first dons the mask himself vs byakuya

Aiden Lewis

Yeah, thats fine by me, I like Orihime too, she's not my favorite character by any means, but I far from dislike her.
But Orihime is not as popular as Rukia that is a fact, and it's only a vocal minority that spam her out of context, especially during moments where she is relevant, that causes the illusion of Inoue having more fans.

Jaxson Hall
Jaxson Hall

Sans Hitsugaya's new adult mode yeah. I don't think I missed any others at least

Too bad Rose's bankai ended up being complete shit, it looked really cool.

Entire thread was civil discussion with shipperfags giving and listening to opinions.

It might be hard for you to understand user but other people can like other characters. Not everyone who like Orihime is a troll.

namefag
inouefan
majority
You must be a really good troll or really delusional if you seriously think Orihimefags are the majority.
She's currently fighting Yhwach with Ichigo you have to be a delusional to not think that warrants some discussion whether you are or aren't a orihimefag.

i said kyoraku because his bankai has a fuckhuge AOE and gerards ability is the will of the masses. would karamatsu shinju be large enough to affect that?

Chase Sullivan

No, he's done for now. There's no one close enough to heal him. That would definitely be interesting though.

Aaron Jenkins

his bankai inflicts the same damage he receives once to the opponent, then a disease, then tries to drown you and finally beheads you.
Not enough to kill gerard.

Angel Cox

Nanao who is a kido goddess

it doesnt drown you. its an ocean of despair oppressing you. im thinking the despair part (similar to The Crow movie) could be used to affect the 'masses' that pray for gerards miracle.

Jackson Morales
Jackson Morales

If anything his despair thing would probably be the only sensible way to counteract Gerard's whole hope of the masses schtick. That or if Mayuri just drugged him up to the point where he's too messed in the head to even understand his own powers or recognize their necessary facilitators. Hanatarou could heal all Gerard's damage, depowering him, then inflicting twice the damage back, then healing and draining him again, in an infinite loop until one of them hits their limit and just explodes/implodes from shenanigans.

Ethan Stewart

hes basically Superstar + james on steroids

Jace Murphy

It would be interesting to see how well the Sternritter have been received compared to the Shinigami and Arrancar. Though I think outside Giselle, Haschwaöth, Bambietta and Äs Nödt, none of them will make it into the top 20 or top 30.
