    Could be any. Would be cool if it came back and did a good job, though.

    And current chapter was pretty flipping cool. Looking forward to what comes next.

      Spoiler:
      This chapter was full of creepy...
      The humanoid forms of the Asauchi, with little mouths instead of eyes, were bad enough.
      But then Kubo had to change Unohana's appearance and demeanor too.

      It feels like there are still somethings that have yet to be explained about the Ausauchi.
      But those'll probably be covered in future chapters.
      I wonder how Kubo will structure the next few chatpers.
      Will he continue this scene split, or focus on one of the two first and then go to the other?

      Ah, so that's why Unohana always wore her hair braid in front.
      I think the only time were she wore her braid back was in the swimsuit episode. xD
      Hmm, some foreshadowing by Kyoraku...
      I hope Kubo actually shows the fight between Unohana and Zaraki.

      Some actual chapter thougths for once;
      Spoiler:
      So according to funky dude, shinigami are given an "empty" zanpakuto when they enter the whole thing. That just leaves me confused as to how Ichigo developed a giant zanpakutou of his own independently, within seconds of getting his powers. I guess the only plausible explanation would have something to do with Rukia's reiatsu creating it for him or something. Of course nothing in Bleach makes sense if you think too much about it anyway, haha.

      I guess the same would apply to any being in Bleach that has a zanpakuto they can't have gotten from SS. Like the arrancar, for example. Or do they just find random katanas in the desert and imbue them with their powers?

      Anyway, the whole idea of zanpakutos having to be made by this dude throws a lot of things in Bleach upside down.



      But oh well, we'll get the Zaraki-Unohana fight! <3
      Wait, when Kubo said he had something special in mind for Yachiru, what if he actually meant Unohana? That'd be sneaky, hahaha.

        Well well well, that was a pretty neat chapter.
        Spoiler:
        I hope neither of them die, if one does it'll be Unohana though me thinks. Still, a powered up Kenpachi will be awesome.

        When Rukia gave him his powers she said "The percentage of success is not high", makes sense that they'd have a safer method, perhaps this guy didn't literally create them but instead created the safe method of obtaining a Zanpakuto.

        The Arrancar that had the swords were the ones that Aizen modded right? He was pretty good at SCIENCE!!!! and of course he has the god particle Hōgyoku. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he just stole the Zanpakuto recipe with his hypnosis whatnot decades ago.

        Damn lappy, you almost sense-making. :D

        Spoiler:
        Unohana dying would be a fair price if we get to see even more badass-Zaraki.
        Though I guess that'd mean Soul Society loses their next-to-best healer and one of their best fighters and minds of all time.


        EDIT: new chapter
        Spoiler:
        So basically, Kenpachi is Kenny McCormick. :3

          Bit of a boring chapter compared to recent weeks. Unohana styling though.

          Yah. The only interesting thing there really was was the odd thing Zaraki felt. Which sort of seems like immortality.

          Maybe he is instantaneously healed by Unohana somehow?


          also dammit now when they're both technically kenpachi everything becomes so confusing

            Spoiler:


            At first I thought it was something like what happened in the Ichigo vs Kenpachi fight during the ss arc. 45 seconds in.


            But I guess Unohana could have done something, her bankai is probably something stupidly overpowered like the control of all life and death.

            Oooooh. I didn't remember that.

            It would make sense if Zaraki got that feeling from Unohana, just like Ichigo got it from Zaraki.

            Although I doubt that's the case. Unohana very clearly still has the blood on her face that she got when Zaraki's throat was stabbed.

            The whole "you return stronger every time you die" thing is pretty evident as well.


            Can't really see any ability Unohana could possibly have being over-powered.
            I mean, Orihime exists.

              So basically Zaraki is a Saiyan Warrior. Cool.

                This fight would look some much better in the anime.
                Kubo just ain't Kishimoto when it comes to manga fight scenes. :/
                Where di that piece of blade, that got stuck in Zaraki's shoulder, come from?

                I feel bad for Isane and Yachiru. :(

                I don't have much else to say about this chapter, unfortunately.

                Well that was pretty cool. Zaraki "rejuvenated" would be nice, but on the other hand it'd be a real shame were to die by his hand (before we even get to see her bankai or anything).

                  I really like this chapter. This is Kubo at some of his finest, imo.
                  Unohana reveals through an inner monologue that even thought she's infamously the the strongest Kenpachi, Zaraki is still stronger than her.
                  Kubo also tied it in nicely with previous parts of the the manga.
                  Zaraki seems at first glance to just be a simple, battle loving brute, but in reality he's a deeper character than that.

                  Zaraki's odd visions from the previous chapter are explained.
                  Unoahana is killing him and then reviving him, which explains Zaraki's lose of consciousness.
                  Each time he's revived, Zaraki is getting a bit stronger and more deadly.
                  I wonder if Kyoraku knew that this is what Unohana was going to do...

                  The revelation about Kenpachi's true strength kind of reminds me Orihime and Ulquiorra.
                  Please keep up the good work Kubo!

                    Oh hey so I'm coming back now.
                    Yeah I'm not going to bother looking at the posts before this one, too many for me to care about.
                    Does this count as a one-liner? Oh well, I'm not really concerned, I'll post properly later.
                    This week's manga's not out yet?

                        Why did this feel like SUCH a short chapter?

                        slashslashslash

                        Her bankai (Minazuki) appears to be... taking all the blood, putting it on her sword, (obviously heightened strength), and possibly that whole skeleton-thingy? Not too sure.

                        Aww man maybe Unohana really IS gone? She's shown her bankai... I can't tell anymore.

                        Kyōraku will probablyexplain the bankai, but the whole thing was pretty cool, even though the entire thing got pretty transparent and got me thinking "yes, yes, just let it happen already", hahaha.
                        Once again, sad to have braid woman gone, but Super-Saiyan Zaraki will always be fun.

                        But in his fight with Nnoitra he could use both hands and be totally badass. Why didn't he do that against her, going all out and all?

                          This is pretty much how I felt when reading this chapter.
                          What the **** is Kubo thinking?!
                          This better turn out like Byakuya's death, rather than Starrk or Harribel's (yes I know she's still alive).

                            Ha. Congratulations Ichigo, you are officially the first shounen protagonist ever to
                            Spoiler:
                            fail a training arc


                            Anyway
                            Spoiler:
                            So yeah, she's about to die. Or maybe her bankai was some over the top Barragan thing which will will prevent that. Who knows?

                            Renji shown as his "friend to playfully bicker with". Implying he'd care about a traitor who is massively weaker than himself.

                            "You've been able to hold your own this entire time without the Asauchi's aid"

                            What does this mean? I'm guessing Ichigo never used an Asauchi like other Shinigami as his power was injected to him by Rukia meaning he missed a crucial step in the development process? If he did he would have had a stronger bond with Zangetsu and his sword wouldn't have broken?

                            "Not some Zanpakutoless human, go where you fit in"

                            Probably means he'll go and ask Isshin, Ryuken or the fullbringers for help. If he does go down the Quincy route I bet his bow will fire Getsuga Tenshous. Would be even better if he went back to his Karate club roots and had Tatsuki become his next trainer. Yes, the next hundred chapters of Bleach will be a sports manga!

                            Oh, I'd so read that.

                            Spoiler:
                            Anyway, liking where this is going. Certainly didn't expect him to suddenly fail, but this means he can go elsewhere and have the coming chapters be about something potentially more awesome than just magically getting his zanpakuto back.

                            ...Well, I say that, but chances are it's just gonna be Vizard new-powers-training arc v2.
                            ...Oh wait, that was Furblings, wasn't it.

                            v3 then.

                              Wild theory time because why not.

                              Ichigo is an experiment of unlimited potential, like the Hogyouku but in human form. His ability is to adapt and survive, he is simply a big ball of instinct that absorbs everything around him. His first sword was so basic because the only one he had seen was Rukia's, it improved second time round after gaining experience fighting with Renji and losing to Byakuya. The thing with his "mum" (Probably a set up, what better way to give someone a protecting nakama fetish), fights with hollows, the menos and later the chain in the shattered shaft introduced him to those abilities which he would appear in him when he needs. His only attacks are ones that Isshin has, he picked them up subconsciously whilst living in the Kurosaki houshold for all those year. His bankai looks and works differently to everyone else's as he obtained it not really knowing much about it, he only really knew it would boost his power and that's all it does. He gains the mask after training with the masks, he gains fullbring after training with fullbringers, that is how he works. The only thing he won't be able to obtain is the thing all of his actions seem to be based on, that of course being

                              I giggled.

                              Actually, that WOULD explain the sheer boringness of his abilities.

                                And Zangetsu is just a bipolar hollow messing with his head.

                                Oh, I forgot to mention in my first, slightly serious post.

                                This chapter has really made me doubt
                                Spoiler:
                                the fact that he really got his Shinigami powers back. Kinda thinking this current appearance really is just an awakened form of his fullbring. I don't believe Zangetsu would have been broken that easily pre timeskip.
