chapter wasnt a COMPLETE waste. It was mostly a waste, but not completely. We got to see Ginjo and Tsukishima. Like anyone really cares about them. Ginjo has a new look. I wonder how Tsuki will feel about Byakuya's current status. Seeing as how using his fullbring made him and Byakuya training partners/ bff's.
awww who am I kidding? This chapter was a let down. I wont hold it against Kubo because his last few chapters have been good. I just wish we got to see Grimmjow. Also, while we're at it, where is Yammy?
I'm guessing the Uncle is Isshin. I say that with absolutely no certainty. This chapter was a little confussing.
Well like most of us thought the mystery person was Grimmjow. I wonder if the uncle Kukkaku is talking about is Isshin (probably). Hey its the fullbringers, never thought I would be seeing those guys again (seriously). And a new-old blade for Ichigo? Liked the chapter, probably the only here who would admit it.
Don't worry Jai, I liked it too ;).
The sheer thought that Ganjuu is a new leader of Fullbringers, or rather that Fullbringers have joined his gang, is quite amusing :P. He must have powered up nicely.
I can see why Tsukishima and Ginjou might be considered semi good, seeing as they didn't commit any grave sins against humans, but the time user purposely killed his own wife, just WTF, he should go straight to hell.
I'm actually wondering about the state of their powers. I can see that Tsukishima retained his powers, since he wasn't killed with a cleansing blade like Ginjou and the time-guy. Their powers are hollow based, so by killing them with a Zanpakutou, their hollows parts should have been cleansed, thus their Fullbring powers should have disappeared.
Uncle... let's pretend that we don't know who it is :P. Still it's interesting that Kukakuu's father is a twin brother of Ishin, since the only way that Shiba and Ichigo could look almost identical, while having different parents, is this... then again it's manga so who knows ;P ?
So, am I to assume that the Spirit Key is a Spaceship ? Because form what I understood, those pillars are the only ones with the quality to pierce through the space fabric between SS and SKR, thought it still needed enough power to reach the barrier/rift.
only grimmjow can be that person
I can see where you're coming from but I have to disagree with one point. Urahara's call saved us from 10 chapters with Ichigo going to hueco mundo trying to save the people he thought were in danger, only to get the same thing. The rest however does seem a bit odd.

Kaien was her brother so no, not in reference to him, but I was puzzled by her mention of an uncle. There have been a few theories floating around about Isshin being part of the clan, and his involvement with his wife lead to the downfall of the clan. But it seems to likely now. I'm just expecting Aizen to come in and pull a total switcheroo on everyone. Something along the lines of his Bankai creates an alternate reality and there is no Soul Society, living world, or Hueco mundo, its allllll in Ichigo's head lol!
Your last point is the one I can relate to the most. How was it not noticed if its just up in the sky? Maybe it is sort of in another dimension? The Oaken may have worked like a Zanpaktou in the sense that when a Shinigami uses theirs as a sort of key to unlock the door to SS. The Oaken MAY have been the same way?
This is all babble cooked up by my fevered brain lol but trying to shine a positive light on what seemed like a long, drawn out chapter, Really helped me enjoy this one
Best first post ever! You sir deserves an award.

- The reason THAT Tenchuuren didn't have a return functing is to prevent anyone from sneaking into SS. If it had its own way to get back even Aizen could just simply walk right in there. This would also explain why Kuukaku is so strong, her purpose is to guard and protect that place since its the only way for ppl from the royal palace to get back.
- Kuukaku saved the fullbringers and now they are in debt to her. So in return for saving them she ordered them to train her brother so that he can become stronger for the upcoming war. He's not leading them and they aren't apart of his clan. I suppose after the deal is done everyone will go their separate ways. I wonder how Ukitake and Shunsui will react to the presence of Ginjo in SS.
-This "Uncle" is obviously who is close to Ichigo AND is kin to Kuukaku and Ganju. Of course this person is "obviously" isshin which would mean whoever Kuukaku's father is its isshin's brother as well.
- very glad the easy going, fearless, and cool Grimmjow is back! I'm sure the fans will be pleased. However, I'm kinda disappointed Kubo used a "One-Swipe Kill tactic" on a weakened Opi to introduce his new strength. Not impressed. But it makes me wonder if he's still weaker than Halibel "the King of HM" ?
- Effin LOVE the look on Mayuri's face at the site of Urahara, he's always salty in the presence of superior scientists especially Urahara. I kind feel for him because in the presence of Shutara and Kisuke he seems so tiny lol
^This guy. This guy knows.
That's a good point. Thanks for the perspective--I guess it could've been worse.
