I still want to know what Aizen'sKenpachi's bankai is.


I'm guessing Aizen has a version of Ichigo's Viking-Hollow form too, so doubt much time, if any, will be spent on Aizen's bankai.

I always thought that Gin's face looked awfully Hollow-esque to start with. I remember reading the manga, and when the Hollow-Shingami combo was first revealed, and Aizen's plans, I instantly though "Maybe that's why Gin looks so wierd, he's wearing a Hollow mask".

Not entirely impressed, still hope things get better from here on out. Atleast it's more interesting than just Ichigo vs. Aizen, but Hitsugaya vs. Aizen really isn't that much more interesting.

I like Hitsugaya, I like his sword, I like his attitude, I just don't like how his power level hits 9000² every time it's necessary. It's almost as absurd as Ichigo's.(Or he just gets brutally slaughtered on the first page of the next chapter, but I honestly kind of doubt it.)

Don't entirely get what the chitchat with Soifon was about, but meh, can't be that important. Overall, liked the chapter. Could've been far worse.

Zerg Rush tactics on Aizen?

I like this.

Though, the Conservation of Ninjutsu will undoubtedly come into effect here.

Blah blah blah. Aizen is powerful. We get it.

Can we skip to the inevitable conclusion and do the whole Deus Ex Machina thing yet?

And then Don Kanonji jumps in and is too dense to be affected by Aizen's sword and tears him a new one with that fireball of his.

I wonder if Ichigo's going to merge with the hougyoku, given that it takes 2*captain level reiatsu:

http://manga.bleachexile.com/bleach-chapter-229-page-14.html

And they made such a thing out of him having just over that when he and what's her face where on their way to the battle. It'd sort of make sense as a way for Ichigo to get strong enough, but we've got by without one so far.

Maybe Wunderweiss will stare blankly, coo and then kill Aizen, declaring himself the king of the rest of the cooing, blankfaced Arrancar.

Well now that Aizen is very clearly dead I want to say so long Bleach. I guess the next chapter will be wrapping up the series. It's seems like there are a lot of loose ends, never seeing Zarachi's Bankai, never knowing why Aizen wanted that darn key, but since Aizen is so very obviously dead beyond any sort of doubt I suppose we'll never know those secrets.

On a serious note, not a bad chapter (compared to some of the recent ones). It's nice to see the captains not just zerging him down and instead using some cooperation.

Wait, are you saying he might survive this? No way, he's definitely dead right? Smiley: grin


It was a good chapter, I can't recall all that many instances where all those captains actually joined up like that, even if it's most likely futile.

There are 4 ways the author could have Aizen resolve the situation.

1. Gin steps in. This can be combined with any of the others, but it would be a nice way to show that while Aizen may be strong, he does need help and that the captains' attack on him did actually matter and threaten him.

2. Is actually injured, but goes hollow form to regenerate. Not that that plot device is used much anymore, but technically the arrancar do gain a large amount of spontaneous regeneration upon sheathing their sword. It would be nice to see the author use a mechanic he introduced before and not having completely forgotten about it. Least likely scenario.

3. It was all an illusion. Aizen was munching on some fish n chips about 5 feet to the left. He reveals that he has them all under his complete control and thus it is time for the story to revolve around Ichigo again. Fairly likely

4. He just too darn strong! The worst outcome. Nothing anyone does to him matters. He didn't need regeneration, an illusion, or anything else. His reiatsu and skill are just so far beyond everyone else that they don't matter. HE shrugs it off and eventually Ichigo has to fight him.

Best outcome: he dies, Ichigo feels like a bit of a prat.

He fades away gradually until only his grin remains. Meanwhile, Aizen's blood rains on the flagstones below.

Aizen has been taking fighting lessons from the Saiyans.

The third one is indeed the most likely, especially given what Unohana said to Ichigo about him being the only one not under the illusion powers of Aizen.

I don't know what Gin is supposed to do, I don't even know why he's still alive, he's nowhere near as powerful as Aizen and has already taken out one of the Vaizards, a bit odd there was no retaliation for that. (chapter 377 I believe)

Agreed. This was actually a great chapter, and I also loved the cooperation between the captains. Too bad they're gonna ***** it all up next week =/.

As long as my favorite captain isn't harmed and will live on in the hope that he'll one day make sweet love to my other favorite captain.

Why can the healers cure everything--even bring back the dead but can't cure tuberculosis?

They just don't bother. If you could bring people back from the dead would you stop to cure every sniffle that came your way?
