So you are saying that Ichigo getting an apprentice that was already hinted at the beginning of this arc, as an example of the story shifting to other characters ?

Chad and Inoue are training ?
So are Uryu, Bach and Hashvalth the only ones that came to SS with their castle, while the rest of the Quincy take care of the Shinigami that were send to HM (the only remaining ones seem to be the one that were outside seireitei)?
Free passes for everyone to SS it seems. Way better than the thought they may never get to see Ichigo again.
So when Ichigo finishes his training he will be so strong that the human world won't be able to contain his power!? Nice.
Am glad Chad and Inoue is using their time wisely in HM to train because boy are they going to need it.
I like how Bach just phased his entire castle into the Seireitei.
Bummed that there will be 5 weeks without ma Bleach. Plan this thing out right Kubo and bring Bleach back better than ever.
I'm almost certain that they were made by Urahara (would Mayuri even agree to do something like this ?).

Since it's the last war, I can't wait to see Chad in His Full Devil Form (he is more of a Devilman than a Fullbringer :P) and Ori summoning Ulq :D, or at very last Making Tsubaki manifest in a bigger, human-sized form, or finally a 6-Petal Spell (currently she has 3-p, 2-p, 1-p spells, though they did grow stronger) ?
Castle ? He phased a whole city along with the walls around it and replaced it with his own Icy City and Castle, Clock Tower... damn, Kubo must be a big fan of the Lord of Shadows, because seriously, Bach is Dracul, he uses blood to fight, has red eyes, black hair and bearrd, has white-haired descendants, can suck out other people of energy and obtains new weapons by defeating bosses (Yamamoto's Bankai), and of course summons his own castle out of nowhere with dark arts :P.
Well, perhaps he is preparing a triple release like Mashima :D. Nah, can't be :p.
For those who didn't know.
5 weeks. Seriously. I expected a break but such a long one before the start of this last arc. Damn thats long. You'd think that he would have some Idea of what he wants to do before he started this arc.
She has a 4 petal spell too, its a shield that repels and sends the attack back at someone.

Uryuu becomes the Soul King vessel and Ichigo becomes the Spirit King vessel, sounds like an epic fight. I hope they do something in hell though, I feel like there is a lot of Quincy down there and probably a good place to battle it out. Get Kurotsuchi on it to try and teleport everyone down there to fight club it out
Oh right, right, you are right. Still, they need to power up in order to fulfill their promise of not dragging Ichigo back (because if it wasn't for Grimjow...).

Huh ? I think you meant the Next Emperor, but not really, though for Hashwalth to become the next Emperor, Bach still needs to die, so this war might take a bit of time.
I have to wonder if killing souls is a sin for which you go to hell ? Sure, mass murderess of humans do go to hell, but what about Hollow slayers ?
We will likely not see Hell (that was the whole point of the movie).
The Belmont clan, ehm, I meant the Quincy sure do not like Death Gods/Soul Reapers :P.
Oh right, if someone forgot to check Ulq's Side Story, you can check it here , or here (this one was done more in a cinematic way).
I am suspicious of the timing of Kyouraku's "gifts" to Ichigo's friends... what's he up to? If it were a simple matter of letting Ichigo's friends see him again and warning them, why bother? It's not as if having warning of it allows them to do anything about it now... or does it? If there's one thing we have learned about the new CC is that despite his friendly exterior, he can be a hard man who will not hesitate to do anything to save SS. Giving Ichigo's family and friends tickets to go see him in SS before the training much less the battle is even over suggests that he has some reason for wanting them there before hand. Does he think they can help in some way? Beware shinigami bearing gifts. They almost always have ulterior motives.

We still haven't found the origins of the Quincy so I wonder where they really human from the beginning or something else that mated with humans and gave them Quincy power.
Pretty much, Hashvalth mentions they have reached the limit of operating outside the "Shadow Zone" area, whatever that actually is. I have to wonder if Aizen knew about it, or simply was giving Ichigo enough time to come and save the day ?

Next thing we know and Urahara will suddenly start using Lycan Power of the Dog Clan or something :P.
