    I feel kinda sad seeing Isane and Yachiru like that :/

    It seems that she isn't really fighting Zaraki till death, but teaching him after all the 'way of killing' by using the 'tricks'.

    Will he kill Unohana after all? Maybe when Isane get's in the prison and maybe even in between them?

    First couple of pages I'm all "Awwwwww, poor Isane and Yachiru!"
    Then as Unohana dodges and counters I'm like "Shit! Look at her go!"
    Then you realise that she is bringing him to the point of death and healing him so that he'll be stronger... I now get the feeling Unohana IS going to die.
    I do love the little smile she has on here face though lol

    It also seems like Zaraki fought differently when they first fought each other. But since he started basically emulating her, by fighting like her, he has fought sloppily, just to get that feeling of fear back. No wonder he got Ichigo to try cut him as much as possible...
    I guess that would be her sin that has been passed on. Zaraki wanting to be like her. She obviously knows now just how bad she really was back then and wouldn't want anyone to behave like that.

    I now really want to see how Zaraki fought back then... Damn you Kubo! Give me more!

    Sometimes updated...

    This was an interesting chapter.

    I loved that we finally got to see Yachiru, even if we didn't see her face. :/

    Either way, I guess it's possible that Unohana is indeed healing him, but how come did he felt like he got stabbed through his throat? Is it a side effect of a super, fast, OP heal from Unohana? I don't get it.

    Regardless, we now know who fought her, it was Zaraki and not Yama ji, so, this means we still don't know how Yama ji managed to get her to be a captain.

    So there basicly Saiyans getting stronger everytime they get beaten???

    Seems Unohana plans on beating him again and again without killing to give him a power boost.
    Which makes me think her sin is doing something simular to power herself, alto i wonder why she would think of it as that.

    Its good to see Zaraki getting his ass kicked

    I was kinda happy when I saw her stabbing him through his throat but I thought it was too soon and wasn't as happy, but it was good regardless.

    Yeah about that.....

    I just had a very interesting thought....

    First off: LOL Zaraki got oowwnneedd, good to see Unohana is JUST as hard core as we were expecting, utterly dominating Zaraki seemingly without breaking a sweat... But then you get to that last page. Now I think we can all agree, Zaraki got stabbed through the fucking throat, you don't just come back from that.. Unless an outside source is helping you

    Now I draw your attention to the last couple of panels "That is the mistake you imposed on you" I'm guessing that's supposed to read "That is the mistake WE imposed on you" then the following like "And also... My Sin"

    Now I don't know about Y'all, but to ME that sounds like Zaraki's insane durability and the fact he's pretty much impossible to kill is NOT just because he's a tank, but because of something Unohana (and maybe the top ranks of the Gotei 13) did to him.

    What do we know about Unohana's Zanpaktou? So far we know her Shikai is a wierd stingray looking cyclops monster, which you can put anyone into and the stomach juices heal them. What if her Bankai takes that one step further and either protects the person it's cast on from death, or Prayer of Healing style, STORES the healing inside them, so that whenever they take a mortal wound, instead of dieing they come back stronger?

    What if when they first dueled aalllllll those years ago, after Unohana destoryed him and he was MEANT to die, she used her bankai on him, because she enjoyed fighting him so much she wanted him to go away, get stronger and come back to fight her again later.
    Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.

    you have, its that massive flying stingray thing i believe (or was that the shikai?). The thing that heals people put in its mouth, maby it has another form?

    EDIT: yea my mistake, its her shikai. But thats the first shikai that doesnt resemble a sword of sorts ive seen (or atleast can remember). So really curious what the bankai will be, im thinking shark with head mounted lazer

    slightly better translation is out from MangaStream.

    This translation makes it seem like it's an ability of his shikai that he hasn't realized, an ability she brought out when they fought, also most likely linked to his insane durability.

    Oh wow. That site is a lot better lol.

    Quality is much better and the translation is better too. I was confused when I was reading the other manga site lol. And I now understand the last part.

    It means that he can only get stronger when he's about to die or lose because he imposed that on himself, he only gets stronger when that happens, and that happens with Unohana too I believe. I actually don't understand her part very well.

    So when he dies, he gets stronger. BUT! When they first fought, he did something to Unohana so she couldn't use her second hand like she is now. Maybe he had a completely different fighting style. And then comes this:

    What if when they first fought, he learned his Shikai? But for some reason, he forgot that, just like when he just got stabbed in the throat. It did happen, but for Zaraki it felt like something happened, but he doesn't care/remember well enough.

    But what could it be? Insta regen is a no go, fatal blows will not be fatal for x-period?

    Unohana said Zaraki lost consciousness for a moment... But he himself says "Now is the time to get busy off of basic instinct". It seemed like they still kept fighting, even tho he lost his counsciousness. He was cornered, his sword on the ground and got stabbed, the blood he coughed up in her face...

    Unohana's 'sin' could be either his Shikai, or the way he fights now (on the brink of death). That could also explain her scar in the throat.
    She won't die until we have seen her Bankai, but she IS teaching him during this fight. But, maybe she wants to make it clear, and uses Bankai during this fight...? Zaraki in no-brain hack 'n slash mode seems like he really wants to try and kill her.

    Quick edit;
    Reading on Bleach wiki page that Tite Kobo said ""Consume everything, demon of the blood-thirsty sword." - Tite Kubo[1]". Once he starts fighting, he won't stop until his opponent is death? He wants to be the strongest i guess...

    Edit 2:
    The more he bleeds, the stronger he gets? When he is on brink of death, he comes back stronger. That would explain the blood-thirsty sword... And it would explain also why his sword would always be in Shikai.

    Kenpachi is going to learn his Bankai.

    At that point, dividing by zero will be possible.

    Thats when the world will end.

    Do you really think Kenny will either: 1) Learn his swords name and Bankai. or 2) During the course of the fight remember the name.

    It almost seems to me like he knew it at one time and just wanted to fight on pure power along.

    Also there goes my theory that Kenny's LT was his Bankai, seeing as she appears out of no where 99% of the time.

    Now I wait till next week to see if he does more of the fighting our moves over back to Ichigo..

    It's what Kubo says at the very top of the page. It's apparently from the Bleach Official Character Book Souls, page 140. But maybe it's a silent hint? During the Nnoitra fight he had this huge reiatsu skull. And he was very wounded back then.

    Now i am getting myself curious about wether this theory could be right or not :/

    I doubt he will learn Bankai, but he will learn the name of his sword tho.

    So I havent really followed Bleach after the Aizen storyline ended, but have loosely heard what has happened from a friend since then. But he hasnt given me the full details of this whole arc. Can someone tell me whats been happening. All I know is there is a group of Quincys still left, and they have declared war on Soul Society and Hueco Mundo, and have invaded both, with putting like Hollow Extermination camps or what not in Hueco Mundo. Also the last I heard was Captain Yamamoto has died by the big bad, and Ichigo and his gang are being taught by Squad Zero. Could someone tell me more details then what I have heard and what has happened since then if possible?

    -Aizen arc is over
    -Ichigo lost powers
    -Some worthless arc where Ichigo gets back powers
    -Small group of Quincies invades soul society, declares war, kills Captain Commanders vice captain
    -Nel shows up in Karakura, tells Ichigo that Quincies took over Hueco Mundo
    -Ichigo, Chad, Orohime, Urahara go there, fight with one of the "captain" level quincies. (in terms of captain "rank", not similar strengths)
    -Oh btw Quincies can steal bankai. They can't steal Ichigos though
    -Ichigo uses bankai, fucks up that Quincy in Hueco Mundo
    -As Ichigo is fighting, Big Boss Quincy takes his special "captain rank" Quincies called Sternritter to Soul Society and invade
    -All the Captains fight the Stern Ritter
    -Like 4 Captains try to use their bankai and lose it
    -Captains get fucking owned but no one dies
    -Kenpachi solos 3 different sternritter (those guys were undefeated, they each took down/fought above captains)
    -Kenpachi goes to fight head Quincy.
    -Kenpachi gets fucked up. (Byakuya also got fucked up by one of the Sternritter lol, what a fucking scrub)
    -Captain Yammamotto kills the sternritter who killed his vice captain with his shikai
    -Yama travels to Head Quincies spot, and reignites fire in the Captains who are still losing their fights to Stern Ritter
    -Yama meets up with Head Quincy
    -3 Sternritter show up at the same time and get owned with one hit with Yama's shikai
    -Yama makes head quincy bring out his sword
    -Yama bankais. Dude has FOUR BANKAI POWERS in one, most epic thing ever.
    -Yama beats the head quincy
    -Turns out head quincy Yama fought was some sternritter who had transforming powers
    -Head Quincy shows up, he was talking to Aizen.
    -Head Quincy kills Yama
    -Ichigo gets help by "someone" most likely Grimjow in Hueco Mundo
    -Ichigo goes to Soul Society
    -Ichigo meets up with Head Quincy
    -Ichigo gets raped in a fight but plot reveals he has some Quincy powers
    -Turns out Aizen distorted Head quincies sense of time during their meeting and Head Quincy has to go home
    -Ichigo tries to attack head quincy
    -Head Quincies second in command (apparently) uses his sword and breaks Ichigos bankai
    -Zero division shows up. 5 people
    -Zero division takes Ichigo to Soul King's Palace to repair his bankai. Bykakuya Rukia and Renji come along to get healed.
    -Ichigo and Renji are currently going through trials to repair and strengthen their bankai from the guy who invented bankai
    -Soul Society is trying to repair after war. Dude who fought Stark becomes new Captain Commander
    -Unohana is currently teaching Kenpachi how to fight. She's super strong and used to be 11th division captain.

    That's all.
