    maybe he was being trained up by Bach, learning secret Quincy Techniques that will let him fight on par with Ichigo, or possibly he was being tested by Bach to make sure he's the real deal. Or maybe Kubo just wanted to crank up the drama a bit by waiting

    Unless Juha Bach can replace letters whenever he wants, which may be an option too. Guess we'll see soon enough.
    the theory was that there were 26 Stern Ritter, in the same way there were 10 Espada, of course now that 5/6 of them have been pwnd they're be down a few, in fact I think that's probably why they introduced the new ones now, the next big push is coming and they needed to bring in some bad guys to replace the ones that got killed in the previous invasion.

    p.s. Kaj the random footsoldiers are called "Soldat", they're the basic Quincy troopers, and I think the gunfighter guy that took Shunsui's eye is the general of them, or at least he was in charge of them for that attack.

    EDIT:

    Hmm, I just had a thought... Wouldn't it make more sense for the Arrancar that was pointing their blade at Urahara to be Neliel, back in her adult form? We know she was with Orihime and Chad while Ichigo was fighting Opie. Shortly after a "mysterious stranger" cuts Opie in half and we only see their blade. At a later point, we see Urahara, Chad, Orihime and hear a mysterious other person...

    Am I the only one that thinks it's Nel?

    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.

    Yeah that makes all sorts of sense! because IIRC Nel never dies, whereas all the others are more or less slaugtered?
    Nel makes alot of sense for me atleast, Thank you for divulging that to the rest of us kub....I mean "Gallahadd"

    Could be nel, but with grimmjow not dying and just the way the scene seemed it looked more like grimmjow to me. After thinking about it though it could have easily been nel.

    Based on the translations I've seen, Grimmjow is still most likely candidate.

    What occurred during Ichigo's call to Hueco Mundo:

    The stranger asks: "What are you guys doing here?" to Orihime, Chad, and Urahara.
    Ichigo reacts in a shocked, scared manner and begins to ask who's voice it is.
    The stranger seems to speak and refers to Ichigo in a derogatory manner, one translator used:
    "Kurosaki you shitstain, you're there aren't you?!"
    "Don't fuck with me, I heard his voice!!"
    "Quit it you sons of-!!"
    Ichigo tries to ask why he's with them, but is interrupted.

    For that last line, gender pronouns aren't used as heavily in Japanese, but if Ichigo really did refer to him as that guy or in some sort of gender specific way, then he must be male.

    Nel would not talk like this, unless the translators are trolling, Grimmjow is one of the few that could talk like that and trigger Ichigo's reaction.

    Ichigo would not be so surprised if Nel was back to her normal form anyway and the limbs of the teased character in the panels match Grimmjow, whom Kubo has already confirmed is alive.

    See ch. 518

    Apparently it's been confired by KT that it's Grimmjow, so I guess I was wrong

    but that raised the bigger question, where the frak is Nel? She was there when they were fighting Opie, but vanished in the next scene :S.

    its the thing that killed ichigos and ishidas mom where basicly those with impure or mixed blood were killed so that their life force or whatever went to the king so that he would come back

    When Juha Bach drained the mixed-bloods of their powers. It's what lead to the death of both Uryu and Ichigo's mothers.

    Btw, the way they worded it in the translation I read was confusing, was it saying that Juha intentionally spared Ishida, or that Ishida survived by some chance or hidden ability.

    From what i read Ishada has a power that is stronger thenn batch inside him and he survived because of it.

    The way I read it:

    "Mixed bloods died."
    "You didn't die.

    Implied Uryu isn't a mixed blood, he's a pure blood, which is a little weird since his Mom was a mixed blood. I suspect there's something weird going around there lol...

    Also, no idea what that fucking box is.

    has there been any news on if they will be turning this last arc into a anumated series as well?

  15. #1315
    I reread the chapter on mangastream and changed my mind.

    It looks like Uryu IS a mixed blood but survived for some reason.

    Also...that Sternritter girl fucked that guy and then killed him. I see...

    It's definately Grimmjow ^_^ in chapter 518 (he is so hot :c!) (also it can't be Neliel because she calls Ichigo "Ichigo", not "Kurosaki")
    here is proof! http://i45.tinypic.com/2uym5qw.png
    I'm a new Bleach fan and I just finished reading the latest chapter last night! I got to say that Bleach is a really awesome anime! Fullbringer might not have been good but it was still ok, I sort of liked that mental war they did to Ichigo! But now this Arc is so awesome X_X I really like that guy with the "fear needles" that nearly killed Kuchiki Byakuya T_T and AMG ! Unohana the first Kenpachi, that was sooo cool x_x, I never expected that adorable medical shinigami to be a walking terror!
    Now about Ishida.... I am confused to about him saying being the only Quincy that survived from the ones remaining. Maybe his father is a pure blood but his mother was a human so he was born a mixed-blood so Juha was surprised to see him alive.

    Say anyone else remember kubo mentioning he had 10+ years pre final arc?

    Well it dawned on me...What if what we saw with Aizen WASN'T what we thought....What if the plan was to have allllll that stuff up to then basically be the Auzen arc with almost everything else as sub arcs....

    Think about it the Quincy have a sort of supreme ruler but we haven't really seen Hueco Mundos(no Idomn't count Aizen and Barragon was still contested) so who WAS hueco mundos....


    Also what about hell? And then what we're seeing now..

    I for one am starting to think maybe ALOT of the things we're seeing were meant to be even semi more incremental and that maybe this would have even been the second arc or the begginning maybe with the true series finally having been a sort of war resulting in a unification undo the banner of the new god Ichigo...

    I think that migjt have been interesting and possibly one if the plans...

    Just a thought but I think I could have waited 10+ years for all of that LOL.

    I don't get what you mean Sorrior. That all of what happened now is contributing to the final arc? Yes I do believe that's what's happening but it seems obvious.
