Holy shit... Is this the end of Unohana? On the final page it looked like she was ready to accept dead, but will Zaraki show mercy once again?
For Unohana to kill him over and over again without even using her shikai she has to be ALOT stronger thenn zaraki is now, so if zaraki becomes much stronger thenn her from this he is gonna be redonculous. This will probaly go on for a while longer as we still haven't seen much from Unohana.
Makes me wonder wo Zaraki is going to fight? Besides for Juhabach wo is strong enough to give a good fight to him if he really becomes much stronger? The regular sternritters didn't seem all that powerfull they would probaly have lost to the captains if not for the bankai stealing.
Sweet, hit it on the head with her healing him (Zaraki + Unohana) at the point of death. Id assume he will just regain his old strength and because he appears to be very attached to her i think he will eventualy kick her ass but wont kill her. He will probaly fight one of the higer up captains of the quincies, if he had his ass handed to him by a simple copy of their boss, would make sence to bring him up to their level.
This chapter was okay. Kind of...boring reason Kenpachi is weak but lol.
She's technically alot stronger than him but she explains why. He's basically sealed the lion's share of his power away to make fight enjoyable. Rather than let it run rampant and just destroy everyone in one go. His first attack on Unohana is the only wound she has and he was still just a boy at the time lol If she manages to get him to release ALL of his sealed power then.... damn...
He's now managed to hit her once so it's obviously working I guess. Time to switch back to Ichigo and Renji for the next chapter I'd say.
He also seems to have his Zanpakutou from the very beginning, even when not a Shinigami. Makes me wonder if what he is using is really a Zanpakutou... or if he is just forcing it to be in that form to make the fights last.
Ichigo is going to have to have some super saiyan powers to be stronger than him. and let's face it, he has to be since he'll be the one fighting Juha Bach as the main character.
Makes me sad that it's almost obvious that Unohana will die now. I'm guessing she manages to unlock his true power and he learns his sword's name and his Bankai and they fight to the death with their bankais. It's the only way we'll see Unohana's before she dies.
I'm curious about when Unohana says she is stronger than anyone except Zaraki. Was she stronger than Yama-ji or does she just mean stronger than anyone around now? :S And does this mean that Zaraki will become stronger than Shunsui and Ukitake?
I'm not sure I like that idea in all honesty.
Also, is it just me or could Unohana's vice captain pass for Renji's Dad? >_>
I said we'd get the obvious flashback chapter at some point ^^ And I'm glad we did. But then, I like having the history behind things.
wierd chapter... kinda asks more questions than it answers .
Seems we were right about Unohana and Zaraki, this confirms that Zaraki will NOT be getting Bankai(for me at least), this training with Unohana is just to unlock the Reiatsu he is subconsiously sealing away, to make fights more interesting, want more evidence? I don't even think that's a Zanpaktou he's using, I think it's just some freakin sword he picked up along the way, he doesn't know it's name because it doesn't HAVE a name. This is why (IMO) Zaraki will never be as strong as Shunsui, Ukitake or Yama-ji. Because while he has INSANE reiatsu, his technique is non-existant. If he was to go against someone like Yama-ji in Zanka no Tachi, or Shunsui in Katen Kyokutsu (or Bankai, if he EVER shows us that) I still think he'd lose, regardless of how much Reiatsu he can bring to bare.
Seems they really are pushing towards Unohana's death, which is kinda stupid if you ask me... From a tactical standpoint why have your highest reiatsu fighter train up your SECOND highest, to make him the highest, but in the process kill the old highest?
and yeah UnifideDevide, I'm guessing she meant stronger in terms of pure Reiatsu, which as we know doesn't mean everything in Bleach world, so while her and Zaraki may be monsters in those terms, others beat them on many other levels. Yeah, that dude looked ALOT like Renji.. then again that WAS a flashback, so it could be his dad, or maybe grandad
I think we've not got long left of this fight, one maybe two more chapters then it's of to see what Ichigo and Renji have been up to.
Then again UD, that could have been his true power inside him, screaming to be released, NOT his Zanpaktou, but he's such a noob he didn't realise .
Also possible Zoma, AFAIK you can "Take" other peoples Zanpaktou, iirc didn't Tousen use the Zanpaktou of the girl he became a Shinigami with? the chick that died...
I doubt he will get a bankai as of now, it seems more that he just is too strong on his own to actually obtain bankai.
But this is kinda sad, like UnifiedDivide said; Ichigo has to go completely super saiyan cause main character 'should' fight the enemy leader (i hope its Zaraki that will...)
So Zaraki is official THE strongest of all Shinigami it seems...
Isane is her (well in a way "was") vice captain. In the flashback to when Kenpachi was a kid Unohana had an old man for a vice captain.
Her reviving him all the time is what has me curious. How does she do that?
Yama ji died. She didn't revive him. WHY?! And why did she oppose that dude from Squad 0 to "heal" Ichigo in those pools? I don't get it really.
She's not actually killing him, she's taking him to the very edge and then bringing him back just before he dies. This is different to what happened with Yama-ji, as he was cut into tiny little bits, then assploded.
As for opposing the Royal Guard guy healing Ichigo, it wasn't the healing she opposed, it was the moving. She thought that moving him would kill him, I think she also resented her skills being questioned.
Can someone tell me when the hell Kubo got amazing Character Development and Writing skills between the Arrancar and Blood War Arcs?
It seems most of the Captains will be getting power ups for the final battle.
I'm just wondering if Unohana will really die now..
I hope she doesn't. I always had a soft spot for her because we never knew her backstory or how strong she was, but now it's just obvious she's a caring "mother" to the Gotei, and especially Zaraki.
She seems to honestly care about him.
That caring 'mother' part, isn't it possible that well, Unohana is Zaraki's mom?
All in all, the most logical thing to happen is that Zaraki will have mercy / be stopped. Somebody will die when he is being stopped. (Yachiru...?)
Unohana as Zaraki's mum? God I hope not
Why does somebody have to die for Zaraki to be stopped? (and why would be it Yachiru :S), I'm guessing Zaraki will be about to lay down a killing blow, then SOMETHING will happen, either the Stern Ritter will attack, or someone will burst in to stop that happening. Just doesn't seem right to kill off Unohana like this.
