    So I was just thinking about something, and to be fair I may just be jumping the gun since this arc isn't over yet, but does anyone else feel there was no reason to kill Unohana?

    Kenpachi had to kill her to unlock his "full potential" or w/e but he's pretty much out of commission after beating Gremmy so what was the point? It's not like he was weak or anything, yeah he got jobbed by Bach but so did Yamamoto, wouldn't it have been better to have both of them fighting together? Especially since she's such a goddamn monster? Was there an explanation for all this that I just missed/forgot or something?

    You're not wrong, but on the other hand I doubt that Kubo's thought that far ahead

    I can't stress it enough. Yes, Unohana's death was pointless. Well, there was a point but it's Kubo-logical one, which means 'dumb as fuck and illogical'. If Kenpachi needed to kill her just to unlock mere shikai, I guess he would need to kill Soul King to unlock bankai.

    Also, strong people don't work together in Bleach(or shonen in general). After all, you can't show off how strong they are unless they defeat enemy with their own hands.

    Implementing an Aizen of the week feature was all part of Aizen's plan.

    When did you start thinking Bleach wasn't in Aizen of the week format?

    We've had Aizen of the week format since before Bleach was first published.

    You know. I actually liked the name and reveal of Batch's power.
    It actually sounded cool, I'm referring to the title only...

    It's so furstrating to know how random Kubo's approach to his plot is. For all we know, he might have intended for Aizen to become a serious threat again, only to change his mind and give him Orochimaru vs Itachi treatment, where poor Orochimaru barely even finishes a sentence before getting pawned again.

    I'd love it if the plot was impossible to predict because Bleach was that good, but it's only impossible to predict because Kubo can't give two shits about the things he himself established earlier.

    Bruce Almighty - God decides to teach a man who complains about him too much a lesson.

    Evan Almighty - God makes a man build an ark to prove a point to the Congress. And save the environment! God also makes Evan's beard grow!

    Yhwach Almighty - God gives him power, he decides to replace him. His beard isn't growing, but mustache is. Beard and mustache are the same word in Japanese anyway!

    This is exactly the problem with a lot of the powers Kubo comes up with though.

    All style and no substance.

    Then when he does actually come up with one with some substance, he usually misuses it.

    Yeah, most of us have learnt not to expect great things in general when it comes to anything in Bleach.

    I stopped reading it a chapter or so after Kurotsuchi unleashed his band of zombies. I thought that was just whack and didn't like where it was heading... Started reading the chapter when that unkillable Quincy was killed by the Zanpakuto blacksmith or whatever so I missed the infiltration of the god realm. Did anything interesting at a all happen in that gap?

    Please don't tell me Hitsugaya was revived...
    beware

    Man I literally forgot about that until I read it just now.

    Read if you don't mind spoiling the pleasure of reading Bleach off the edge of your seat.

    Spoiler:
    This arc has been all about jumps from unresolved events, especially this last day. Ok, Komamura beat up the bitch. Turned into a dog. What then? The bitch appeared again but it would have been better is he hadn't. Kenpachi sort of wins, where's Yachiru? Ichigo starts fighting, interrupted. Other captains start fighting, offpanel some Sternritter. Sternritter bicker among themselves, take eachother out, Mayuri zombies, unresolved. RG fight Elite 4, unresolved. Going once, going twice. It's a question if we'll even see a conclusion of Ichibei vs Yhwach or will the scene switch to something else again. Like, I don't know, Urahara's cousin coming to help with some shit, or Mayuri's step sister coming up with some poison that can help kill Yhwach...

    You missed nothing of interest really, except for some more deliciously creepy Mayuri.

    Thank you both. I was ready for disappointment.

    But the good thing though is that Kubo can really surprise (well at least surprise me) with his art. I really like what he did with a few panels of Kanjuro (baldy- don't know his name)

    With so many hanging plots in this arc, I'm thrilled to see how messy it's going to be in the end of the road

    I always had the excuse to read bleach because of the art work and character designs were good even tho story is horrible. Now it's just getting unbearably confusing and sloppy. Jesus, it's always your so pathetic I'm so strong I can do x and you 'll be dead. Then x fails, and the opponent says well x can't handle my y so fuck you and die....next fight happens same result.....
