That Urahara face though.
Never seen that fucker so shaken
Ukitake is the real soul king, he's been hiding alongside his "army". Just think about it, he's been always acting frail and never fought against anyone ever. The ultimate kubo asspull.
I would just like Kubota to remember that the Shinigami are actually the bad guys as was first very obviously established in the SS arc. Everyone they've been fighting sonce have actually been the underdog good guys trying to overthrow an exceptionally corrupt and oppressive regime.
But for some goddamn reason, even though he's seen first hand how fucked up Soul Society is, Ichigo decided to forget everything he learned about them and join their side despite it obviously being the wrong one.
Though I guess they've got Rukia, so i guess that's what did it for him.
Soul King seems less like a governing body than a true king/god, and more of an empty shell holding the worlds together. Sure, all is lost without him, and he is the only thing keeping the world in existence. That may merit the title of a god/king but Aizen actually wants a proper leadership role to be taken
Since when were you under the impression of not being talking about construction equipment.
Also, fuck the online reades that keep forcing this shits into chapters
how did he realized this
is he a quincy or connected to the soul king somehow?
>tfw urahara is the second son
This was the only good thing to come out of yesterday's chapter.
Apart from the fucking roof crumbling there was an earthquake.
Did you read this or what?
Everyone else but Rukia has those reactionlines around them. She seems internally shocked, while others are still on the level here. I got the feeling that Rukia is more shocked about Ichigo failing than the Soul King dying.
Also, how the fuck would Urahara know what's going on? Why would he react like that? He has always been as cool as a cucumber, even against Aizen.
I bet he's just faking it so nobody would suspect him. He MUST HAVE KNOWN that Ichigo would react like he did. There's no way that Urahara would be so careless.
That's a good observation about Rukia, I didn't notice that. I wouldn't be surprised if she was more worried about Ichigo's well-being than the state of the entire world collapsing
I suggest that we spread this image around as a joke and claim that it's real.
Oblivious people always come to these threads asking if it's worth to pick up Bleach again after arc X
Tsukishima will stop it guys, don't worry
He can't let Inoue die
Shutara did say Aizen was the lesser evil. And although I don't think she knows shit about anything worth mentioning, this statement in particular should be correct. At the very least, with Aizen as the SK, the world might not be destroyed, as it seems to be Yhwach's objective.
>Ichigo realizes that Zangetsu makes him subject to Yhwach's will
>gets rid of it
>Shirosaki is the only part of his soul left
>Vastolorde Ichigo again
>Yhwach is raped
>Royal Realm is raped
>Orihime is raped
>some plot twist with Urahara and Aizen
When did you fall under the impression that your five isn't mine?
Can we just step back and...what
>Ywahch: The Soul King was made
Soul king is an artificial soul or something?
Xcution, as masters of matter manipulation, stabilize the world while Aizen, Kenpachi and Ukitake deal with Soul King in Buff/Control/DPS formation.
Series ends with Kubo submitting to illness , dying words "good to see you again, soul reaper"
Gotta say I'm hype for Ukitake. Since his introduction its been implied that the role he plays is far greater than has ever been revealed.
The final meeting between Ukitake and Shunsui seems to confirm this, as it is implied that either a) the two have a ulterior plan set or b)the two seemingly inseparable duo have been working at opposite ends their entire lives and have now reaching the deciding moves.
His face in the panel says it all. A man seemingly marsalled by the maxims of peace and serenity, a person who has likely actively nerfed his power with crippling illness, has the face of RESOLVE. Same face he had when Aizen left SS.
I'm feelin a real big Kubo around the corner
You'd have to be a bit stupid to not realize how they're foreshadowing for awhile now that Soul King is really more of a title, or a sacrifice, in the sense that someone can take his place as the pillar that holds the worlds together.
Ichigo is being set up to take his place at the end, which is why Shunsui gave Ichigo's friends those tickets to visit the afterlife while being all "Ichigo, what he's going to become after this all goes down, he's not going to come back this time".
He'll be the new sacrifice/king that protects the worlds with his body as the lynchpin, and two people set it up so it would occur like this.
>Yhwach is son of Soul King
>Masaki is daughter of Yhwach because he is father of all Quincies
>So Yhwach is Ichigo's grandfather
>Ichigo is descendent of the Soul King
When did people first start theorizing this? First arc?
something's wrong with hime's boobs this chapter...
One of two ways.
The first is, either Ichigo or Aizen become the new soul king. The second is, Rukia wakes up on the day of her execution and Kubo is trying to turn the series into something good again.
It'll be one of those.
Ukitake is being set up as the obvious choice, but something is going to prevent that and it will be someone TOTALLY UNEXPECTED, like Ichigo. Aizen is done, I'm pretty confident of that.
I heard people theorizing orihime would be able to fix the SK before this chapter but, as usual, she cant do shit.
Ukitake might do something drastic, maybe sacrificing himself or something along those lines.
But somebody needs to powerup soon.
Aizen is absolutely done, it'll be revealed through dialog between side characters that this whole Quincy bullshit could have only happened if he did what he did and that his goal of becoming the soul king or whatever was just a red herring to make someone else soul king and shake things up.
And then Aizen comes in at the last page and kills the new soul king, becoming the NEW new soul king. And the Hogyoku was required to do this, it was all for this moment!
All according to keikaku.
The chance of Aizen escaping from his prison now is pretty high since all od soul society is crumbling, it would be logical his cell room is vanishing along with his restraints.
I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up all of a sudden or secretly escaped.
I don't think he'll escape by himself, that wouldn't be KUBOOOO enough.
I personally think Kyoraku is going to set him free as soon as he hears that the SK is dead, to take his place and become the new sacrifice.
Maybe he's already doing that.
Goddam you people are blind.
Ukitake and Shinsui knew this would happen so they made preparations. Why the fuck would they make Aizen a Soul King? It's obvious from the last page that Ukitake will become the vessel for the SK, remember when Aizen's condom form started to break apart before he want all Butterfly? Same thing is happening to Ukitake.
>Supposedly modern but we never see touch phones or internet
>All technology is from roughly when Tite was a high school student
It all makes sense now. Not even Tite could make this shit up...
1) Soul king was sealed involuntarily by royal guards
2) His physical state changes depending on the state of the world
3) Shutara has amputee fetish
4) Kubo forgot it just like everything else in this arc
>tfw this thread has me watching the first season of bleach again.
Holy shit its great.
>Dat relaxing starting bit.
>When everything was simple and nice.
But seriously. I'm worried I might ride this ride a bit too long.
>Aizen steps out and says everything has gone according to Kekaiku
>everyone is easily defeated
>A second Aizen comes out of ichigo
>says he came back in time to stop himself from killing the soul king
>Aizen had manipulated himself into letting Ichigao being born, Ichigao was always Aizen
>Second Aizen kills the first Aizen
>Aizen breaks out of Jail and aborbs the first and second Aizen and reveals he is actually from the far future and has to fight off alien soul reapers
I think he would kill himself honestly.
That's also acceptable, but only if it's with love.
Holy shit. Never been to a Bleach thread. What the fuck is going on? HAHAHAHA
Aizen. My guess is that kamekake or whatever can somehow stabilize things long enough to go and fuck Bach up. Aizen knew the SK was going to get killed, so now that the deed has been done Kyoraku's going to bust him out so they can set their keikaku in motion.
wait, hey guys. what if all worlds; Soul Society, Hueco Mundo, the Dangai, and the Human World are part of Soul king's soul or body.
you remember Fullbringers? They can manipulate the souls that reside in all physical matter.
Hogyoku and Aizen will return and make Ichigo's desire to have the power of the Soul King to save everybody come true and everything will be purified and everybody will be alive because Ichigo controls the souls and Orihime and Ichigo will say goodbye and much feelings and tears as Ichigo is locked away in Soul King palace to have orgies with the Zero Division.
And then, finally, Kon will be a real boy.
I'm surprised nobody else did this, tbh.
>wait, hey guys. what if all worlds; Soul Society, Hueco Mundo, the Dangai, and the Human World are part of Soul king's soul or body.

You know, the biggest problem with all this, he world ending, king dead, Ywach being the Asscracker.
I'm just not feeling it.
It's bloody pointless. The series is ending you know it's just all pointless now because you know there can't be long term effects.
Back when Aizen came up, or Ichigo turns Hollow, you know those things will count latter. That's just not here anymore. That's all.
Doesn't feel like anything.
>none of this will matter
>after bleach ends kubo announces next manga
>strawberry is soul king
>sporty sister is main character
Following the Bleach formula, the first arc would be REALLY good...And he'd still find a way to ruin it, eventually.
>Rukia wakes up on the day of her execution
>Kubo said this is the final arc
>use that to turn back and reboot every other arc and change the outcome
Bleach - The Second Chapter, coming soon to a browser near you.
The Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy aren't real either. You're waifu, too.
Just watch it from the start until Ichigo throws Rukia from the top of that giant crucifix after rescuing her. And then stop and watch no more.
The first arc from the start to Rukia's rescue is still my favorite arc ever in any anime.
Aizen distorded yawach time sense... permanently, so he can see the future, but shifted, so there's a time he has never forseen or experience, that tiny window will be the key, because he cannot forsee anything that originated during that time, so it's a "time blind spot"
Aha! So there are still people around who find this odd.
It is unfortunate that everyone is focused on that silly Urahara expression. To be fair, he never made a face like this before. Still, I think, as you also mentioned, there's currently more happening around the dual
Zanpakuto wielders. Ukitake making this face, Kyoraku and his plans. I wonder how many steps are left until those two turn around everything that happens. Like they did in the SS arc.
Everything that happened until now gave me the impression that those two had their own game running all along. They too seem to be capable players, fit for acting characters in one of Kubo's plot twists.
Naturally, we won't know for sure until next week. Those who have an eye for the bigger picture already presented their explanations for the Ukitake face in previous threads.
>yhwascabach can see the future
>aizen was sealed and powereless in his seat when moustachio man visited him
>aizen gets released when soul society breaks
>confronts ghostly burt reynolds
>uses kyoka suigetsu in the future to distort ychwachs sense of time in the past
But even with all of this, the soul king did nothing when yawach got there, even if it's implied that the SK has a will and express opinions.
Are the RG always talking in a figure of speech?
What the hell is going on here?
