BLEACH -108 "Turn Back the Pendulum"
Turning back the pendulum.
The story has continued far into the future but for a moment that story will stop.
We are turning back to the past for just a short time however the reason that we hurry this to you who is so far away: It should be known but it can’t be known, this is the truth of the “Vizard”.
TURN BACK THE PENDULUM
110 years ago
Aizen: Good morning.
Squad member: Good morning.
Squad member: Good morning vice captain.
Aizen: Good morning.
Aizen: Are you ready captain?
Hirako: Oh..yeah sure you can come in.
Aizen: Excuse me.
Hirako: Aren’t those clothes a bit normal? This is a festival, I told you to wear something dazzling Sousuke.
Aizen: You also captain.
Hirako: It’s ok I’m a captain.
Aizen: It wouldn’t be right if only I wore interesting clothes captain, and besides it is more of a ceremony than a festival.
Hirako: It’s a celebration, so it’s like a festival isn’t it?
Aizen: That’s not really how it is however what was that music playing a while ago?
Hirako: Jazz, it’s some new music from the living world, isn’t it cool?
Aizen: I don’t really get it.
Hirako: So why do you ask?
Hirako: Helloooooo it’s me! Captain of the 5th division. Can someone get the door? Heh I never come to first division cos every time I do the people get so nervous.
Aizen: These are the faces of nervous people? The ceremony is not that tiresome so please don’t fret.
Hiyori: You lot are so noisy, you know you can’t see the faces from that side Sousuke.
Aizen: It’s open now, please go inside.
Hirako is abruptly kicked in the face and sent flying.
Hiyori: Heya! Baldy Shinji! Doesn’t your face look easy to step on today!
Hirako: Hey you.. Hiyori.
Hiyori: I am not apologizing!
Hirako: I haven’t even said anything yet!
Love thumps Hiyori
Love: Apologize you brat!
Hiyori: why you…
Love: I can’t believe you..
Hiyori: What the hell Love! You think such a face is normal!
Love: Well if your captain isn’t around someone has to take care of the problems you make or there will be chaos.
Hiyori: Don’t talk to me like I’m a kid! I have no intention of apologizing! I can’t stand the sight of his face, it makes me sick!
Love: Yeah yeah..
Aizen: Captain please, maybe you should not make that face in front of everyone?
Hirako: Everyone is here already?
Love: Just about.
Hirako: The 11th division didn’t come?
Love: He is probably just playing hooky as usual and doesn’t seem to care what is said here ever anyway.
Hirako: I dunno Kenpachi real well since he never seems to be at these meetings. I wonder why we have to have a fellow captain who acts like such a pig.
Love: Well there is not much you can do, the seat of 11th captain is being held by Kenpachi whether we like it or not. If you want to blame anyone blame his predecessor.
Doesn’t say who, probably Kyouraku: I don’t really admire you lot talking smack about people.
Kyouraku, Ukitake and glasses (either Nanao or Risa) enter.
Love: Ah, hello, early today Shunsui san?
Kyouraku: What was that? Normally I am the first one here.
Glasses Nanao/Risa?: You can thank me for kicking that ass into gear today!
Kyouraku: Save that potty mouth for when we aren’t in front of other captains.
Ukitake: I don’t see Hikifune, she isn’t coming today?
Kyouraku: It seems she went over there already to check it out.
Ukitake: In such a hurry, it’s not as if it’s an urgent matter, it would be better to do it slowly.
Hirako: but it's kinda like that you know...... this rushed changing of captains is bad. Rose has only just recently entered the 3rd division as captain and now the 12th is also changing... I wonder if the Gotei 13 will be okay.
Kyouraku: There are often times when everything is changing, we just happen to be in one of those times now.
Kyouraku: There’s no one really left from 100 years ago except me Ukitake and Yama jii right?
Ukitake: That’s not true captain Unohana is still here.
Kyouraku: Oh yeah that's true, I forgot about the great senpai, I'll be scolded... scary scary…but really, the 3rd has retired, the 12th has been promoted and there is no way the captain of 10th is dead. Its peaceful enough isn’t it?
Hirako: Oi Sousuke!
Aizen: I’m sorry captain, please excuse me for intruding on the conversation.
Kyouraku: Nah, its okay, what did you want to say Sousuke kun?
Aizen: The fact is that we are never informed of such things…so 12th division captain Hikifune has not retired but has been promoted you say?
Kyouraku: That’s how it is.
Aizen: Has the captain joined the central 46? Although I’m not sure I would think that it’s most likely promoted captains join the central 46.
Kyouraku: It’s not central 46, she has joined the Royal Guard, Squad Zero.
Aizen: !! Royal… Guard…
Captain we don’t know the name of: Oh finally you are here new guy, Jii san has been waiting for you.
Urahara: Ehhh? Hmmm could it be I am the last to arrive?
Hirako: Oh…some smart guy has arrived?
Aizen looks up: That’s right…
The next chapter has a colour spread

Aizen was shinji's VC Oo"
Well. My mind is blown. The history of SS is shorter than I thought. Rukia probably knows all the Vaizards personally. Hiyori was a vice-captain? Makes sense but jeez thats kinda sad.
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

Kubo your pulling out surprises and twist every week now, good job. So this means that Hiyori was Urahara vice captain. So there were exiled altogether, which leads me to a question what i brought up before does Urahara have Hollow powers. Oh and how many people still think that Shinji would have lost to Grimmjow now that we know he must or should have a Bankai and he took him on with out releasing his Zanpakutou.

Hiyori as a VC actually makes sense in a twisted way. That certainly explains her numerous bitch-slapping of Shinjin, something commonly seen with other female VC's (except Aizen's Momo I suppose...).
Damn, I bet it's included in the job application. "Please check this square if you have a liking of kicking/slapping/annoying your superior."
But Aizen as Shinjin's VC? oh my gods... imagine the ownage...
<me giggling hysterically>
Anyone knows if the vaizards all defected in the same time? "All this happened 115 yrs ago". _What_ happened? They got turned into vaizards was that meant as to when the royal guard got dismantled?
Kind of suspicious if 1/3 of SS senior officers just dissappears at the same time and no one mentions them at all. When Sandal-hat and Yoruichi left SS, it caused a huge scandal. But if 3 captains and a couple of VC's left at the same time... wow...
Stealdragon: Dunno if Rukia knows the vaizards personally... Wasn't she intentionally kept as a low ranking shinigami? I can accept that she would recognize them as ex-senior officers from SS.
Rukia was only around for about 50 years, no time line mess up here.
That was unexpected.
There was probably no mention, well for one to keep this a big surprise, two they wouldn't deliberately mention that 1/3 of the captains have recieved hollow powers!!!
So kick them out without reason and get new ones..
If this turns out to be true, I'm actually disturbingly impressed. As bad as it sounds, I'd particularly like it if they focused on the Vaizard's stories for a while, interrupting the current events.
yeah, but most of that was in rukongai, not in seireitei, remember she grew up as a spirit in rukongai, so at most she might've been a shinigami for 70 odd years.
