    First, I'd like to point out that Yamamoto is probably going to be tricked/trapped again, like he was when he fought Aizen and Wonderweiss. I mean, one simply doesn't attack the most powerful shinigami in Soul Society without being absolutely confident that you can neutralize him.

    Secondly, we're probably going to start seeing a higher body count than we saw previously. I mean, this is the final arc, so there's no point in the author preserving the lives of all the fodder characters (which this manga has a lot of). From a story perspective, they brought Ichigo back because he was more powerful than maybe 99% of Soul Society, which means that it's a solid bet most of Soul Society is out-gunned by this new group of opponents.

    Thirdly, I don't think it was a kido spell that was used against Ichigo, it looked like another Quincy item. And it did have an effect, it looks like it removed the layer of power provided by his fullbring, the extra pieces on his bankai form.

    A kido spell that absorbs? naturally, for a quincy... for a moment there I was scared that Ichigo would lose his powers AGAIN.

    Saved by the fullbring...

    If Ichigo had lost his powers....again....Kubo could have kissed his ratings bye bye

    Looking at it again, I'd say it actually only damaged it a little even, it didn't take all the fullbring armor off.

    His left arm still has the white pieces, and on the next page, he still has the black pieces at his neck and chest.

    ----

    As for the person who asked about Sasakibe, it looks like he had been impaled on the ballista bolt, then shot into Yamamoto office/area in the tower. I don't think he's dead quite yet, he's still holding on to his zanpukto. http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/483/17

    ^ Wanted to point that out just now, oh well.

    What to say ? Sealing a bankai ? Well, Aizen sealed a whole zanpakutou, with his puppet Wounderwaiss, so they aren't better than him if they can only seal bankai, especially since sealing a zanpakutou before it's fully released seems a more logical thing to do.

    So, we still won't see Yamamoto's bankai, because it's going to be sealed ? Or, we are going to see it, but the moment he is sure of his victory, it's going to get sealed and then he is going to get killed.

    What's up with the kid ? Is it me or is Kubo giving him too many front pages and the thing on Ichigo's hood... could that kid be, Hichigo reborn ?

    Can someone translate the title and the name of their organization ? My German isn't at that level anymore (more like it's not at that level since years ago, if ever ;P).

    How so? I think that would be awesome, because that automatically makes the entire Gotei 13 the underdogs (hell, even Ichigo). And how better to create drama! We love rooting for the underdog, yes?!

    LMAO!!!!!!! So...we're just going with...no respect, huh? He just gets no respect from anyone?

    SHOULD be. But when has that ever helped him before...

    I dunno, but that coverpage was awesome in that "Kubo interpretive art" kinda way.

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU WON'T HONOR MY PIRATE KING DISCOUNT!!!

    Actually, anything involving Quincies, he usually uses German for.

    considering we were first shown his combat abilities in the SS arc along with the fat 2nd squad VC(prolly the only VC whom is more useless) and the 4th squad VC eye candy(where he busted out a wait for it.... french style rapier as a zanpakuto) all getting pwnt by Ichigo barehanded I don't think Kubo ever intended that guy to be respectable.

    Seeing as the previous 6th division captain, the grandpa Kuchiki, left, he probably couldn't force himself to diminish his useless, fighting wise, VC, because he would feel lonely, being the only one that looks so old... though there are 2 other captains with white hair and one VC with gray. They should make one of the Vizards his new VC although I wouldn't mind if he was to be replaced by Grandpa Kuchiki, unless he is dead.
