    This manga went to shit long time ago. But at least that was the one plot twist i didn't see coming.

    Kinda makes sense, since everyone always seems to be scared of her when ever her temper flairs just a tiny bit.

    Bleach is worse than all your ex-girlfriends combined. I can't stop going back.

    I'm more curious about Shunsui calling her Unohana Yachiru more than anything.

    Hmm, Yachiru was named Yachiru cause that was the name of the only person Kenpachi ever admired. I wonder if the original Yachiru he named mini after was Unohana? Maybe her being the first Kenpachi isn't Shinsui's only reason for choosing her to teach him the sword.

    Seems like the popular speculation at this point. One of the RG (Elvis dude with the healing spa) pretty much spat out her name Retsu with heavy sarcasm when he admonished her for staying on the sidelines during the Vandereich invasion. Retsu means is something like killer, violence, etc. So I guess we should have seen that one coming. They gave away Shunsui's full name so dropping the bomb at the end with Unohana seems fitting. All that crap for 10 years about everyone being scared of her makes sense now.

    I wonder if her Bankai/Shikai have other "uses" than just helpfully healing wounds. I seriously doubt a Kenpachi would end up with such a benevolent sword. Hopefully their is more to it, it would be the first interesting twist in bleach since we found out Aizen was behind everything going on in soul society.

    Maybe she doesn't like killing but was damn good at it. See that's the thing about Zaraki, he loves to fight. But there is a big difference between fighting and killing. He often doesn't kill his opponent. He'll walk away if he thinks his opponent is beaten and can't go on fighting. That's why she is going to teach him the art of killing.

    Basically they are explaining her not fighting as if she does she goes fucking mental? Yamaji wanted her to not go our against the Vandenreich because the consequences of her being forced to fight are too great?

    What they really need to do is get Kenpachi to learn how to talk with his fuckin sword. When that happens and he can fully use his Shikai - game over.

    I just realized that this whole royal realm thing is just like the heaven arc in dragon ball z. And yeah kubo always said that unohana was one of the most powerful shinigami's in ss. The old data books had her power close to yamamoto. I have to admit bleach is actually more interesting to read right now then naruto. Funny how better a manga is when a mangaka isnt trying to milk a single fight over months.

In that chapter, after he wipes him away, he was about just head back to SS before Yachiru reminded him of the Yamamoto's orders to stay.

    Reaction to this week's manga: About fucking time he comes a little clean about her.

    Anyone ready to double-down on Unohana being a yin-yang shinigami, meaning her zanpaktou has life/death modes?

    I will go with that. Her shikai is for healing, while her bankai is pure killing insanity. Most likely no one wants to see her get mad, and why she is always shown to be calm. I wouldn't mind several issues of Bleach dealing with the training of Zarakai, and the restructuring of SS by Shinsui.

    I told my wife (she watched the anime with me while we were living Japan together) that Yamamoto Genryuusai is dead for good since Shinsui got the promotion to Commander. She then replied " Did he die of old age?" and that was probably the best moment I had in Bleach for a while.

    Hmmm, I like where he's going here - with each of the Zero Squad being important beyond measure for something. I like how in one line though Kubo completely obliterated that entire filler arc with the half green/half blond haired guy that claimed to have been the creator of the Mod Soul/Artificial Soul.

    reverse tsunade -
    store chakra, become younger/big boobs -use up stored chakra become old hag

    bleach version
    store reiatsu, become fat -use up stored reiatsu become good looking/big boobs

    but then there's probably tons of that variation everywhere

    Also, the teacher in Ranma 1/2 would turn into an adult when she would absorb Chi and back into a kid when she would use it and the old female master in Yu Yu Hakusho would turn young again during fights as she uses a lot of reiki or whatever.

    I want to see what comes from this powerleveling that Renji and Ichigo are receiving...

    This shit should have happened when Aizen was invading soul society and they should have ended the series with Ichigo killing him :/ I liked the last couple of chapters but it's too little too late now.

    I can only hope that the zanpakuto hut kills them, and that's the end of the series.

    Orihime will turn out to be Ichigo's real Zanpakuto. Renji's will be a tentacle monster and Kubo will go XXX for the last chapter as the ultimate Rule 34 troll.

    That's because it talked about the real Unohana, ofc (who was drawn creepy as hell for this chapter - talk about letting your hair down, but shit, man).

    Also, am I the only one now hoping the anime actually does a filler arc centered on her history? (Nevermind; didn't know the anime had been effectively cancelled, heh)

    Yeah kubo has been holding on to this story for ages. He hinted years ago in an interview that she was not what we think her to be and would be showing a side of her we did not expect. I am pretty sure they will pick it up again and animate this arc once it has finished considering this is the last arc for Bleach.

    I was thinking of the Bount one, where I thought the 11th squad was something else.

    Everyone can see where this is going. She is going to put him into a coma and while he is recuperating he will finally meet his shikai. One of the best bleach chapters in a long time. Keep this shit going kubo.

    "Everytime you cross the border to death, you become stronger" EPIC TWIST!! Zaraki is a Saiya-jin and she's trying to get his power level up so he can go SSJ! I agree though, this subplot is 1000x more interesting than the last and current arc...

    Not too bad. Killing Zaraki repeatedly to power him up? Neat little thing from Zaraki's POV about why he was losing consciousness - when it was from Yachiru killing him over and over hah!

    Ok I'll concede that chapter was good. It's a little dumb how when Zaraki met Unohana he somehow instinctively nerfed himself but I'll accept it for the sake of the story. Still I wonder if Zaraki is going to turn into the ultimate badass only to get iced by the main bad guy so Ichigo can save the day.

    you know all of this will be useless once ichigo enters the hollowworld and meets his red-haired mother, kuunago, which teaches him the power of love and how to be a quincy, adding yet another useless skill and no depth to the main character of the series

    If we are lucky he will get a really high fever and hallucinate some interesting story lines. He can't come up with them on his own anymore.

    Naruto was totally justified to come out earlier considering the possible magnitude of this week's chapter.

    Damn, for a second there I thought Kenpachi was going to say he finally realized his Zanpaktou's name, not something retarded like "I like fighting DURR".

    Rejected title of chapter... "How kenpachi got his groove back". Well that chapter was confusing as fuck. Her bankai made no sense. I guess it puts her opponents into a coma?

    Her Bankai melts flesh so she had to learn how to heal to be able to use it and not die. I assume she healed Kenpachi too.

    So now Kenpachi has "I like fighting" AND "Use two hands"... epic... wait... no.

    Little disappointed that this ends in an ambiguous powerup for Kenpachi with no real changes made.

    Makes no sense really, if she can heal people from being turned to a skeleton she can heal being stabbed by Kenpachi again.

    If it's not a fake ending and he doesn't learn the name of his sword (at least) then this is bullshit.

    Of course she can heal herself, but you know this is gonna be some bullshit about her "accepting her fate" and letting Zaraki take her place as the true Kenpachi.

    Found this while wondering wtf about her bankai. Basically, it's written two ways with the same kanji reading, so the translators put all of it in English as "Minazuki". Got this infos from here: http://randomc.net/2013/02/14/bleach...little-secret/

    That her Shikai. Her bankai was written as 皆尽. Although it also reads as “minazuki”, it has a different meaning.

    肉雫唼 (“purify the flesh”)
    皆尽 (“deplete everything”)
    (I don't have Chinese or Japanese character packs installed hence the squares). One post I saw speculated on the idea that her bankai removes literally everything, leaving Unohana and those affected by her bankai unable to do anything but sword fight, which would obviously tilt the odds heavily in her favor.

    Read the mangapanda one, then the mangastream...

    First translation made it sound like Ichigo was done. Second one seemed like he had to go through some more "rebuilding" first...

    Mangastream is almost always the more accurate translation.

    Mangapanda translations are always god damn awful.

    I think Ichigo needs to master SSJ4 by combining all his power sources.

    I got the impression (from both translations) that crazy zanpaktou guy was making Ichigo go through the basics; that his reforging has to go through a completely different process.

    So am I correct in believing that both Zanpaktous Ichigo has gotten so far have been acquired incorrectly?

    Maybe Getsuga is Inner Hollow's sword and this whole time Ichigo is just borrowing someone else's power.

    Technically this is true, though I think there's a hint of a retcon here as far as acquiring the swords are concerned. Ichigo manifested as a shinigami with a released Zangetsu from the start (Rukia transferring her power; the infusion from others in the Fullbring arc), yet this arc is implying shinigami won't ever have one without acquiring and imprinting on an Asauchi. So where the hell did Zangetsu come from at the start?

    I'll guess that Ichigo took so much power from Rukia is because he is part Quincy. So to recap Ichigo will be part shinigami, hollow, fullbringer, and quincy. That's why Mayuri's research is going to play a part and that Aizen will as well because he recognized the same. It will all tie in with Isshin, his mom, Ryuuken, Kaien, Ginjo and the rest of the fullbringers, and the Shiba clan. Another of my crackpot theories is his mom was a quincy and brother to Ryuuken which makes him Ichigo's uncle and Uryu his cousin, Isshin is a banished shinigami captain or royal guard that fell in love with a quincy and thereby shaming the Shiba clan causing it to fall from nobility, Isshin originally discovered Fullbring powers in the human world, Urahara is the mastermind behind all of this, and Ichigo is a grand experiment.

    I think that's a pretty good theory about it. Who knows if it'll wrap up that cleanly though.

    I assume Kenpachi's bankai will be a third arm that sprouts from his chest. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE POWER OF WIELDING A SWORD WITH THREE ARMS INSTEAD OF TWO. ERMGAHD!

    I took the last part to mean that Ichigo was able to do all this so far on his own power, meaning once he sexes up Zangetsu again he'll be in cheat mode and rape the hell out of the evil Quincies.

    Does Kubo forget what he writes in previous chapters or some shit? Like Tram said, he wrote it like it was a super secret revelation and we're all supposed to be like ERMAHGERD NO WAI!!! I swear this guy is on drugs for sure no joke...

    Ah but the key is she called herself Masaki Kurosaki. So Ichigo's last name isn't from Isshin...but from his mom. So, does that mean Isshin is not Ichigo's real father. Did he take her name? Or did Masaki get killed by the Quincy for siding or showing sympathy for the Shinigami? TK said Grand Fisher wasn't her real killer. Shit, were they truly married and he just banged her and knocked her up? Mini side note - Isshin is confirmed as a captain though his haori and about a 100 other clues over the years hinted 99% that this was the case.

    After rereading it, I am getting a serious Orihime vibe from Masaki. Doesn't Orihimi and Ichigo both have orange hair? 50/50 we have a Luke and Leia situation here.

    We always knew Isshin's last name wasn't truly Kurosaki. If it was, everyone in Soul Society would have KNOWN who Ichigo was, as they would have remembered a Captain Kurosaki. We're still under the impression that Isshin ran, abandoned or is in hiding from Soul Society, so him taking up his wife's name (probably the woman he abandoned all of that for) isn't too far-fetched.

    I always considered it a bit of a plothole(But what fucking isn't in Bleach?) that none of the fifty odd Shinigami Captains, Lieutenants, and Grunts which were downed during the Aizen battles didn't even seem to notice that Isshin was even there. Not one of them even stated afterwards: Who the fuck was that guy who could taken on Aizen 1 v 1 and put him through a building by flipping him in the forehead by a single finger? That's on the level of Yamamoto and these ridiculous royal guard, so HOW DID NOONE FUCKING NOTICE? And yeah I'm aware that he hides his reiatsu super well in Shinigami mode, that doesn't mean he can make it so he's invisible to them if they just fucking look up.

    Yeah have any of the former Vaizards even made hint that they know/knew Isshin at some point in their past? You'd think one of those old relics would have recognized him. And thinking about it, who all was still conscious when Isshin showed up? I'll have to check back. Maybe Yamamoto noticed him but its not like we'll hear anything from him about Isshin now...

    Isshin must have been a recent captain since he met Ichigo's mom who was a human, so he couldn't have been one centuries ago.

    Thats where the inconsistencies lie. Practically all divisions history of Captains from the Pendulum arc to the present is accounted for, and Isshin is no where in this.

    Unless....UNLESS he only served as a Captain for a very, very short time prior to his abandonment.

    Edit: After a little research its possible Isshin is from the 10th Division. Little is known about their history, and its known they hadn't had a Captain prior to Toshiro's promotion in a while. Shunsui/Unohana both claimed the former Captain died.

    Unless she was from the mysterious FASCIST QUINCY WORLD(Oh sorry, the Vanderreich, what the fuck ever) which is making all of these fucking new Quincies immortal apparently.

    Seriously, Kubo must be lurking Rerolled for his plot. Christ.

    But honestly the timeline is still off there. It seems like this stuff is taking place post-Pendulum arc, which means it's within at most the past 100 years. As easier as it would have been to fit Isshin in the Pendulum era, he's thrown him into a more recent time, contradicting himself.

    Hang on a second... so wouldn't Rukia know on sight her best friend's relative who was one of the Captains? Didn't she live with him in the first Manga Arc and didn't say a word!?

    You know Urahara probaby had a hand in this with his Gigai. He probably made it so it erased memories of Isshin when she donned the suit. According to the wikia Rukia has been part of the gotei for at least 40 years prior to her encounter with Ichigo so it is for certain that she would have been aware of Isshin.

    I kind of wonder how long Kubo's been sitting on this backstory (like with Unohana), because for once it doesn't feel like half a retcon. ;p
