Uhh...what just happened?
Getting a little nervous that there's another fullbring in the form of a sword. Don't want it to be a "my dic...err...sword is bigger than yours!" fest again! Different abilities that have to be combined with strategy to overcome other abilities would be awesome.
So we learn the name and fullbring of what appears to be the leader of the other faction. I feel like Kubo should have gone on to show it in action (maybe explain it a few chapters later), but I'm hoping it's just more than a "I cut you. You bleed. The end" deal.
Overall, chapter was decently-paced.

Ok, I see what people mean now that he looks a bit like Aizen, but mostly in terms of hairstyle and the long face. I guess Kubo might develop the new guy's design a bit more later so he won't be so much of an Aizen-look-alike, noticably when he's drawn from a far away perspective, rather than close-up.
Not sure what to think of the chapter, but I found the whole "Orihime's reiatsu is odd" comment so off compared to the rest of the chapter, it didn't fit in at all. The first half was great, though. I really hope we see some more Riruka development (it looks like Kubo is getting that way), and she seems to be a bit of a Rukia replacement, even though it makes me sad to think of it that way. But it would be nice to maybe finally see some more mature development here, since we already know she has a crush on Ichigo, which is quite different from Ichigo's more platonic relationship with Rukia, yet she's obviously not suffering from the shy girl personality Orihime has for the past 10 years. It almost seems like Orihime *might* have gotten over her Ichigo crush, I sure hope so. It's so fucking sad if she hasn't. I mean, in real life, if a person cannot have another, you have a tendency to at some point try to move on, and it would be much healthier for the manga to bring in a character for Orihime that could replace Ichigo and let Orihime develop a more mature relationship. I can actually see Chad fulfilling such a role.
Ahaha, and the best part, Riruka and Rukia bitch fight! Damn, their names are too similar, too :(
Avatar and signature by me.
When Chad said Inoue's reiatsu is odd, could it possibly be she trained herself and got new powers?!!!! Instead of Shield, infinite heal, and dart attacks. That be awesome because than I can be hopeful of Chad's development too.
Seems we might get our answer to what Ichigos fullbring really is next chapter.
As I said before, Bleach only has two types of arcs: Training arcs and Rescue arcs.
Well, at the very least Orihime seems to have a bit more of a backbone than she used to.
While I know this is expecting too much, if this ''rescue'' involves Ichigo and Chad busting heads together like they used to in the manga's heyday, I actually wouldn't mind it that much. I'd be even happier if the whole thing gets subverted somehow, but that's probably just a pipe dream
Boring chapter was boring. Maybe the thing Aizen did to Orihime is finally taking effect.
Somebody's gonna DIE tonight. Somebody's gonna cry tonight.
Orihime prolly knows she won't last long anyways. Would be awesome if she activates her ability secretly and is revived/reversed after he leaves.
Damn he has some long legs. Tsukuyomi LongLegs is his full name now. And he's got a fire chakra sword and a grilled cheese sandwich on the other hand? That's just badass. He'll let her live till he finishes the sandwich
A bridge towards peace; the will of fire still endures!

i gotta feel sorry for the punk kids,Kubo fucks up the punk kids hairdo every other page that he's in. Seriously, half the time it's all black, the other it's a mohawk. Then again it was also like that last week, so maybe his fullbring is Inconsistent Art.
pregnant??? nahhhh ,she`s just speaking nonsense,"So you're protecting him?" "No. I can't just let you get away!" He wasn't going to leave.You mean, Orihime's pregnant?
