^ Spot on kid. I meant to say Rose.
Harribel vs Lisa & Hiyori is understandable but he done the same thing again, he put 2 Vizard Vice Captains (VVC) against someone who didn't land a single hit on a Captain with a premature Bankai.
Barragan vs Hacchi & who ever, well this one I saw coming a mile away the best person to fight someone you can't touch or even get close to, is someone with very good kidou skills.
WW & SC vs Kensei & Mashiro, I can understand this fight as well Kensei is probably the strongest Vizard next to Shinji the Mashiro part is just gonna be comic relief.
This half confirmes some of what I said about, just because there Vizards doesn't mean there stronger then Captains especially the senior ones.
I see what youre saying BF but this is exactly why Kubo is a bad writer. It goes back to him saying Vizards and Arrancars are legitimately stronger than a Captain almost by default. Now we have this "winter war" going on that pretty much disproves everything he said before.
I bet he's going to say everyone from Ulquiorra to Stark are Vastolorde and WW is something completely new and more powerful. I'm not really trying to complain too much (cause hey I like to read it too) but I think if he just takes a week off from putting out a chapter to actually have a brainstorm session and just sit down and write the plot. Right now I really, really think he is winging it week to week. He might have some idea of where he wants to go but other than that he is just guessing :)
Edit:btw Kwasi thanks for calling me Yaz. I know it wasn't intentional but that is my nickname of sorts IRL. Considering my real name is Yazen.
Let it rumble !!!
Now we should bet who´s going down how fast xD
Senior Captains: Yama-Jii, Unohana, Shunsui & Jyuushiro.
When thinking back carefully, i don't think Kubo really screwed up. Even If the top 3 espada's are a vastolorde type, its kinda make sense that they are having a hard time fighting those captains for the first time. After all, look at those captains abilities, all freaking shiet new moves that they all haven't see before. Not that they are not strong enough 2 take out the captain, but they were caught out by the surprise element. After WW shout, look at Halibel and Barragan condition, after taking a direct hit from those captains bankai finest technique, they all still came out unhurt. This show how strong the top 3 espada are.
Strength isn't the measure of all things. A well plan strategy is the key 2 victory. I think that's y Kubo use the animal theme on the espada. To show the difference in way of thinking between animals and humans LOL. *Pls dont take this seriously ^^*
^ Why are poeple talking about Kyoraku's and Ukitake's bankai? They're both still using their shikai.
He isn't. He's talking only about Hitsu and Soi Fon which everybody already knows they are still meager captains compared to "senior captains." But honestly it just doesn't make sense for Yama-jii to let it go that far without him releasing (except for Allon). He didn't know that the Vizards were coming. He was willing to let his crew get annihilated. Ukitake and Shunsui as well. They were all holding back. Baaad writing. It's not strategy if you lose the rest of your platoon for holding out too long.
