    Yeah, I know that, but I think it was said that it was also given to a person who never lost a battle or something like that, but I can't really remember...

    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
    A fine summarization of the community

    From Wikipedia: At the same time he also took on a name for himself: Kenpachi, the title bestowed upon the strongest swordsman, the one who has killed the most, and a tradition amongst captains of the 11th Division.

    He in no way, shape, nor form lost to Ichigo. They clashed and Ichigo fell, but he gave Kenpachi a HUGE run for his money.

    Aye, I think it's safe to say that his fight with Ichigo was a draw, with HEAVY plot armor saving Ichigo , same as in his fight with Byakuya.

    Well it seems the fullbringers are back. Didnt expect themm to show up. Gess that means the mysterius swordsman was Ginjō.
    Not very happy with Ganju showing up again don't like him. Hopefully next time we get to see the spirit king.

    Yea, seen them and was like.. wtf... I dunno whats going on, but I know somehow everyone is going to come back, and I think they are hinting at Aizen not joining the quincy's so i wouldnt be surprised if he came back too. I was NOT expecting the fullbrings to return, and really I dont think they should have

    Hmm. Well, the most interesting thing for me about this chapter was the Shiba sections. I was very surprised to see the Fullbringers back so soon as well! And even more surprised that Kukaku was able to find them so easily. Wasn't it supposed to be nearly impossible to find somebody once they'd died and gone to the Rukongai? Bit of a 'needle in a haystack' situation? Pretty sure that's how Kubo sold it before.

    I am also curious about Kukaku's connection to them. I am guessing she knew Ginjo while he was a sub-shinigami. After all, it seemed like he worked closely with Squad 13 and seeing as Kukaku's brother was the lieutenant of and pretty much stand-in captain for that Squad, it's likely Kukaku heard about him. I miss Kaien.

    What interests me most though, is who exactly is the Shibas' uncle, if the translation is correct and my interpretation of that section is on the mark? Why would he care about Ichigo? Curiouser and curiouser. Gief Ichigo=Kaien incarnation in some form, plez!

    You guys don't need to use the spoiler tag!! =p

    So, this chapter starts with Kisuke! Yay!

    Apparently he is all fine and safe and...he's transmit a message through, Kon? Man, that man never ceases to amaze me! xD And the face of Kurotsuchi! Ah, priceless, he's all like, "How did he do this?! I WANT THIS TOO!".

    Inoue and Sado are okay too then we hear another "voice", I still don't understand who this person is, is it Ichigo's father? I don't really don't understand who it could be. <.< But then he says something about a "nice contract with him", so does it mean that this man is that Quincy they defeated or what? Confusing.

    Then there's a boring talk about how Ichigo always wants to save everyone and everybody. bla bla

    Then he gets all serious on that bald dude to get to the palace! GET TO DA CHOOPA! Haha, sorry, I couldn't resist it.

    Apparently, there's no way to get to the palace without using Kukaku's firing thing. Her brother apparently turned into stone, dafuq. o.O

    Now.. The most weird part, the part I was not expecting. We see Ganju and his friends gain, !!!!!!!! I seriously did not expect to see them again!

    Also, if they are spirits now, do they have Shinigami powers or the powers they previously had? If so, does this mean that when a "super" human dies, that has abilities(Fullbringer or someone like Ichigo, or a Quincy??), will they be able to keep their powers? Hm..

    And finally!! The palace! Seems like a big place, I wonder who lives there besides the King, since there's a lot of houses in the lower part of those stairs.

    Well, this chapter, overall, was pretty nice. Ganju appearing was something I was not expecting.

    It seems like the uncle they talk about might be Ichigo's dad. Also the guy that Urahara was talking about might be Ichigo's dad too? So far i don't know who else it could be...


    Tbh, it was kinda to be expected (still weird tho) that they would return. A few of them died after all.


    Is that, Seireitei under the palace...?

    Hmm. Isshin being related to the Shibas actually would make sense. It'd explain why, with different hair and eyes, Ichigo could be Kaien's twin. There's no way Kubo drew them looking so similar by sheer coincidence. Either he did it with something deliberate in mind or did it to make us think he had something in mind. >.<

    I guess it would make sense for Ichigo to be, somehow, related to Kaien, still, dunno.

    I think they just look similar because of Kaien being Rukia's former lieutenant/friend and so she could have a reason to give Ichigo Shinigam powers.

    Is it just me or does the palace look strikingly like the innitial release of Byakya's bankai? With pillars instead of swords.

    As for the Fullbring people. I can only sigh, thought we'd be done with those.

    TBH with the person in the background i thought it was Grimmjow, it was just the 'Kurasaki you bastard' quote that made me think of him straight away.

    Hmm, kinda interesting chapter, kinda stupid

    I dont like the Fullbringers being back, although since some of them did get kinda gibbed, would be interesting to see them REALLY fight.

    We STILL don't know who the swordsman was ffs :'( although I think it must be a Fullbringer based on Urahara's use of the word "contract" the thing is... pretty sure all the Fullbring were with Kuukaku so.... yeah.

    Also the Kings Palace looks badass , I'm hoping Ichigo and Byakuya will get slightly tweaked Bankai, Byakuyas bankai wasn't broken, only stolen so it shouldn't be weaker. Ichigo hopefully will get a newish bankai, just as powerful as before but with a few tweaks to make it a bit more interesting.

    As for Kuukaku's use of the word "Uncle".... That was rather interesting, at this point it wouldn't surprise me if Ichigo WAS related to the Shiba's in some way, but I get the feeling that she was refering to a whole new character, not sure why.

    Although now that I think about it, don't you think Ganju and Ginjo look CRAZY similar maybe he is 'uncle' Ginjo?

    That is true. It could have just been showing a reason for Rukia gut response to help Ichigo when they first met.

    That was my immediate reaction. Urahara's tone/expression implied that the "contract" was actually closer to one-sided blackmail than a mutual agreement and I think Grimmjow is one of the few arrancar left that Urahara would happily extort. xD

    Ginjo and Ganju do look fairly similar, not to mention their damn names! Threw me off for a bit when I saw Ginjo. Only recognised them all the fullbringers when I registered Tsukishima's shirt 'n sword.
    I don't think Ginjo would be the "uncle" character. Remember up until a few weeks ago, he was human. The Shiba family are all at least several hundred years old. I doubt they'd refer to him with a paternal title. I think it's either an affectionate name for someone unrelated to the family (like you might call your dad's best friend your uncle) or a blood relative that will be a revelation to us. I'd like to know what the original Japanese title she used to refer to this character was. Might give some insight into whether or not they are actually family.

    I think I just nerdgasm'd reading that chapter >_>

    The guy in Hueco Mundo is obviously Grimmjow. He's the only one that rolled up his sleeves like that and would call Ichigo a bastard so easily.

    I'm curious why the Fullbringers are involved again. Ganju and Ginjo... what is the deal there?!

    I think the 'uncle' is going to be Isshin. Who else would be disappointed with Ichigo going somewhere nobody can get to without the Zero division or someone else like that?
    If Isshin is an actual uncle, then he's not Kaien's father. But, if Kaien's father was Isshin's brother, it would explain some resemblance. Though maybe not the almost twin-like looks :S
    If anything, I'll bet Kaien would have a different mother than Ichigo does. Could be a partial reason for Isshin leaving for the real world.
