Bleach: Chapter 396
It seems Yama sacrificed himself with his attack. (Single Stroke Cremation)
Aizen contemplates the attack as one of his arms is charred.
Ichigo's attack connects, but Aizen has embedded the hyougoku in himself
and is completely unaffected.
He begins to talk about Ichigo's battles up till now.
The fight against GJ where he mastered his mask, and against Ulq where new powers we awakened.
Kurosaki Ichigo-kun, I've been manipulating you in the palm of my hand.
I have no idea what's going on with translators this week but the part about Yama might not be true, it might be that Yama-jii arm is the one that is charred, and Aizen contemplates the attack after seeing yama-jii it.
Anyway, he even manipulated Ichigo? WOW, what a surprise xD
Sigh, this early in the week and the spoilers sound lame, I am waiting for Aizen to tell Ichigo that he is his father.
If it's true I think the good guys should just give up. Yama pulls off a huge attack and Aizen barely gets scratched? Then Ichigo pulls off a surprise attack and nothing happens? I said it before that anything that happens to defeat Aizen will be a complete Ass Pull. Unless of course Urahara does something, where is he anyway?
oh god... i'd like to read a shonen manga with a deaf-mute antagonist.
or protagonist. whatever.
i'm fine with just anything that would make it impossible for them to chatter in the middle of the fucking combat.
Kubo Tite pulled another plot line out his ass again...Must be a gold mine(LOL) since he seems to pull these plot lines left and right.... And this one be the dumbest plot line yet
wait......why exactly would putting the hougyouku inside himself make him immune to damage? Why would that do anything at all? Bleach and naruto's spoilers suck as usual......
^Actually it was already explained by Aizen that if someone with reiatsu higher then a captain unites with the sleeping hougyouku for a short time, it will have the power of the fully awakened hougyouku.
So basically Aizen for a little while has the power of a fully awakened hougyouku, so he's even more hax then before but even with that power up he still wasn't enough for the old man lol, Yama-Jii has just been put on an even higher pedestal.
^ that's the thing: exactly what can the fully awakened hougyouku do aside from turn hollows into arrancars and break the barriers between shinigami and hollow?
on a side note: I wouldn't be surprised if Aizen somehow created Ichigo's mother so she could have kids with isshin to create some sort of super Shinigami and then had her killed in order to further ichigo's growth and so that he would naturally have a grudge against hollows and then that would eventually lead him to meeting a shinigami, and set him on the path so that he got to this point.
Well not shit Ichigo was being manipulated. I think EVERYONE saw it coming..
So it seems like a flashback chapter so far..
Black and White 4, Dark Side of the Universe 4 soon? anybody?
