So I've been lurking here, on and off, since about the time the Bount filler came on. I watched the anime up until the filler started, then switched over to the Manga. I didn't think to much about switching over and just started reading from where the anime left off. Well today I was reading over some Quincy info and the page said Uryuu was rather poor in the manga. Not knowing this, I went back to read through the manga's early chapters. everythign seemed pretty close and from what I oculd tell nothign was really changed except the exclusion of some lesbian moments. Welp, that was until the Grandfisher fight. So I'm writing you guys to ask, who the hell is the guy on page 16 or chapter 25?
The doctor that forces his mask off (which I'll get to in a moment) we see later when Uryuu and Chad fight for the first time in Hueco Mundo. But the guy riding on the other hollow's back we've yet to see. At first I thought that maybe it was the first Vistro lord that we've got a clear veiw of, but then I released that the scene was happenign inside of Los Noches, as you can see by the walls. It's obvious that it's not one of the Espada we've seen. It doesn't appear to be Aizen either.
I got to thinking about it, and maybe it's been glazed over and forgotten. What makes me think this is the fact that Grandfisher looks completely different, size and face wise. You can see the comparisons on page 17 of 25 and page 14 of 187.
Comparing him to the doctor who we see later, he would not be the size of the Grandfisher we saw slaughtered at the hands of Isshin. The face is totally different in markings and everything. But not even that is what held me up the most.
What held me up the most was the begining of episode 8. In it we kind of see a few humaniod hollows, then Grandfisher saying he will go, as if he was reporting to them as superiors. The only face we see clearly is that of the doctor who later removes his mask...
So, who is this mummy-headed hollow? Is he Vistrolord? Do you think he was orignally going to be the main villian?
