Bleach is getting better and better. I liked the interaction in this chapter. I'm liking Kirinji more and more. It's wierd seeing a character like Byakuya being tossed around like a doll. If he was concious I'm sure his pride would be damaged beyond repair.
PLUS, we got to see the Soul King!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didnt expect to see him so early on, but I'll take it. The question is "who" was talking to him? It's not one of the 5 squad zero members, so who is it?
Urahara = AWESOME!!!!!
Good chapter. Rukia part was nice. I do like peaches. :D
I'm wondering who was the guy talking to the King. And is it me, or is is current form kinda lame. I had the same opinion of Aizen when he was in his fist stage of transformation. I wonder who else lives in the palace and if there are a few others, I see them as being very talented people. Certainly captain class.
smells like kubo is adopting norse legend thor with the king of azgard
HAHAHA XD, the mangastream translation of the Peach thing is even funnier XP
Ahh, now that's a good chapter.
Rukia's butt automatically makes this one of the greatest chapters ever.
Aizen probably came up with his plan and desire after he had died and entered Soul Society, which means he wouldn't have been sent to Hell. As for his similarity in his transformed state to the Soul King, the Hogyoku was probably responding to his desire to replace the King, so it made him look similar in appearance.
I wonder if Uruhara has ever visited, or had contact with the Zero Squad. For someone in his position, he does possess an incredible amount of information and resources.
So in this chapter the bald dude says ordinary shinigami dont get to meet the King. However, both Aizen and Urahara seem to have seen it. I wonder, when and why did they have that opportunity. Also, it looks to be confirmed that Urahara has at least been to Kirinden. How else would be able to analize the water in the hot springs?
I'll go out on a limb and say these are the people that have seen the King:
Yama-ji - the ruler / commander of SS would have to have meet the King at least once, IMO.
Aizen - he seemed to have at least seen the soul king
Urahara - confirmed that he has at least been in the dead realm.
Yoruchi - no other reason aside from her connection to Urahara.
Isshin - I just have a feeling that he knows a lot more than he lets on
lastly, I wonder if Kirinji could have healed the vizards with his Hot Springs. The explanation given on how the Springs work sounds like it could have cured them.
Yeah, Narutoforums has actually made an "Official Rukia's Ass Appreciation Thread" thanks to this Chapter XD.

Also Soul King's pupils are shaped like dog treats. Try to unsee that now.
Well.............................................. ...................................Well, this episode of Bleach was better than this week's Naruto. At least we got to see the spirit king. I'm guessing the SK wants to see/visit with Ichigo.
Honestly, why do Mangas waste so many pages?
