I called those quincy technique way before when I saw their boss explode that dude's arm!
Basicaly they are like Ishida when he used his ultimate technique, except they can also take reishi from people. That is probably what Ishida's Grandfather couldn't accept.
Being able to take reishi directly from people and manipulate it means being able to seal techniques and such. Hence the Bankai being useless...
Now the question is "Why doesn't it work on Ichigo?"
Except Ichigo is special, as are all the Vizards and Aizen... Maybe their mixed reishi is a pain to absorb?
Was Chad and Orihime being absorbed? Like, their bodies. Cause none of these people have bodies made completely of reishi--Ichigo, Chad, and Inoue are all humans with squishy human flesh...right?...wait...yeah...
except for maybe entities that have a higher plain of existence than them(the user) like example ichigo<--- well this is just a guess
Really enjoyed this chapter. Opie absorbing Allon I can definitely say I didn't see coming and what the hell took Ichigo to attack...After all those preparations "His Majesty" still got in. This is going to be fun...place your best on who dies first, am just hoping it will be none of my favs even though I believe one or two of them will die down the road.
Dang that was brutal! Awesome chapter though, Im glad that when they absorb them it doesn' just power them up or make their natural powers stronger, but gives them some of the person's attributes that was absorbed/enslaved. I wonder how many people they can suck up? If its unlimited then why not just teleport into the middle of SS and absorb everyone/everything? Game over lol
Edit** Im gonna guess that the only way to beat him is the same way as was shown in Yu Yu Hakusho, pump him so full of reishi that he can't absorb anymore and explodes...
Wow, Bleach is back, awesome chapter.
Looks like humans have advantage, thanks to their real bodies (their shells), the body has to be first disintegrated (as you can see by skin pealing off and blood flowing out of Ori and Chad), before their souls can be absorbed (remember, the things from which human bodies are made, have souls as well).
I guess Yamamoto will die in this war, by being absorbed by the Quincy Emperor and in turn creating a beast above what HxCubexAizen was ?
I like the idea of being able to absorb powers and people. I think SS will do the stupid thing and send the grunts to fight and in the process, strengthen their enemies. In the end tho, I see this arc relying on Ichigo's fullbring maybe even to the point of temporarily absorbing people power(similar to what Opie did) it would be interesting to see Ichigo fullbring someone else's sword.
Great Chapter. Love the Hueco Mundo Fight...but in soul society, where the Hell are all the Captains and Lieutenants? Sure seems like they would have been spread out better so the low level soul reapers didn't encounter the intruders first.
