Overall an acceptable chapter.

Why does Kube keep forgetting plot points he introduces? It wasn't even that long ago that he explained the time differential outside the Dangai is a ratio of 1:2000, yet somehow Aizen Aizen manages to threaten nameless Ichigo friends before Ichigo arrives. Let's say Aizen found them in as little as 5 minute, then that would equal 167 days of training time for Ichigo--which he has not yet had.

Also that black figure on the last page is totally Don Kannoji. More likely it's Ishida's dad or Tessai, since about every other powerful character couldn't reasonably be there.

While you're probably correct, it's also possible that they're not supposed to be running parallel and we'll focus on Ichigo's 163 days or whatever now - maybe the shadow is him or his dad and it's just being shown chronologically, perhaps deliberately to trick.

I'll be damned if it's another good guy saving the day. Bleach doesn't need any more of that. Every week ends with some silly cliffhanger (or two!), I've grown completely immune to them. Atleast there's some story progression, I suppose.

The only character I want to die more than him is Orihime. And if she dies, no one else can bring her back.

I think she can only heal, I don't think she can raise people from the dead.

Orihime can only do that because she's not "healing" anything, she's just "rejecting" (read: reversing) the injuries.

Hm, I wouldn't have minded if Kanonji just upped and died here, but this'll do, I suppose. Is it me or does the story actually seem to be picking up after about 1,5 year of standing very, very still?

...Oh.

It actually was Kanonji.

At this point, I think Kubo's just @#%^ing with us.


But I have to admit, Someone as hilarious/annoying/hilariously annoying as him blasting the Big Bad of the series in the face was probably a Crowning Moment of Awesome.

He's protected by the same weenie shield that Shinji Ikari and Wesley Crusher had.

First chapter in a while I enjoyed reading. Bleach started out being somewhat comedic, after all.

True, there was more humour in it at first.

I wonder what Kubo will do with Gin and Rangiku, another flashback chapter perhaps?

Can't have a useful female character, can you? Smiley: oyvey

At least the Don scenes were worth it. Nothing happened, though. Par for the course.

The sudden feeling that Asano is a soul reaper. He's never been able to sense anything before..

Oh god no.

Yeah, just seeing him bleed a bit isn't enough, where's the beating he's getting? :D

So let me get this straight. When Aizen stepped into town, almost everyone (including, what, two of the people in this very chapter) pretty much pass the freak out. And some people, who were slightly more powerful to not pass out, when they got near him just simply exploded. I got that much, right?

[nerdrage]SO WHY HAVE THE PEOPLE WHO PASSED OUT PREVIOUSLY NOT PASSED OUT NOW THAT AIZEN IS STANDING LIKE RIGHT NEXT TO THEM?! WHY HAS NOONE EXPLODED?! ARE YOU EVEN PAYING ATTENTION TO THE STORY YOU'RE WRITING ANYMORE?! IT WAS LIKE TWO CHAPTERS AGO![/nerdrage]

I want Gin to betray Aizen.

No, the inhabitants were put to sleep to move the whole town to SS. Anyone with a slight amount of spiritual pressure seems to just wake up. Since Aizen wants to kill every last of Ichigo's friends, they happen to stick together now. All defending from Aizen.

It is actually fairly reasonable. Reiatsu fields could propagate and interact in several ways. First it possible that like electromagnetism the strength of the field changes based on distance squared (or even a higher power) which means that it is only strong when objects are fairly close (like magnets only strongly attracting each other when they are fairly close) and diminishes quickly to a constant as the distance increase. People who "slightly more powerful" possess a threshold amount of resistance to overcome passing out. The point at which they would pass out is significantly closer to the point where they or other objects would vaporize, which means they are able to stand fairly close.

Kube is a fairly terrible writer, and I doubt he gave much thought to why these few characters are able to remain conscious while others aren't. But it is highly plausible based on a fairly realistic distance function of field strength.

Edit: Oh yeah I forgot, most of the inhabitants were put to sleep by soul society weren't they. Oh well, my explanation still covers the vaporization point.

The worst part of that issue is that in about three years when it finally gets turned into the anime, it'll get stretched into about five episodes.
