    Does anybody else find it funny that Gin looks like a Preying Mantis and his bankai further drives that point? the way his sword bends, its kinda like a Mantis' leg....LOL....

    Kubo is a genius....LOl.

    Im not gonna lie, Gin's bankai is interesting to me. So far Ichigo is the only one who had a straight power up bankai, no transformations or anything, seeing another character like that makes his seem a bit less stupid.

    ^ Agreed, I think its just a massive let down to most because, 1: it's Gin, and 2: most everyone else's (excluding Ichigo) bankais are something flashy. Gin's is just a direct upgrade of his shikai, as it should be. If gin could angle his bankai at multiple ninety degree angles in hollow form I'd be quite satisfied, imagine a two page spread of a gigantic shinso maze darting towards Ichigo...I liked the mathmatics to show the speed at which Ichigo can dodge, maybe the reason why everyone else seems faster can be blamed on Ichigo's poor spirit sensing, they may be slower, but considering he can't sense reiatsu so well, he reacts slow and they manage to strike him with ease. Just a thought, although Byakuya and Yourichi DO still seem faster.....hum....

    That's not why im let down by his Bankai, it just seems lame to me I dont care how it looks and the fact that Ichigo of all people understands it with out an explanation is even more funny. The fastest Zanpakuto against a Bankai that makes someone faster and Ichigo aint even using hollow powers yet.

    I was more intrested in the line about it not being the longest Zanpakuto, and what's happening to Aizen this time because in one panel it shows his left arm then after his line of what it's doing to him is over his left arm is gone and his chest looks like it's opening up.

    yeah thats whay i thought. Gin's Bankai seems similar to Ichigo's in the sense that it compresses their power. While its a let down looks wise, its pretty cool in its ability: Gins cuts ichigo and then ichigo has to get the fuck out of the way before the delayed after shock hits him lol

    Matsumoto: Damn pills, I feel like shit.

    Ichigo: Is it super fast?
    Gin: Scary. It is even faster!
    **
    Isshin: Tired already?
    Aizen: I evolve.

    How sad is it that I am still waiting for next chapters. It is like being hooked on some cheap soap opera...

    Hmmm the chapter wasn't as big of a let down as the spoilers made it seem, not taking anything away from BF. Chapter was pretty good actually there was action and there was a little bit of talking, we already know we can't just have all out action because it would be nothing but black ink everywhere, and we don't want a chapter of just talking either, we have the anime for that. So Gin's bankai moves at an incredible speed, interesting indeed, I guess it is best him and Hitsu didn't fight seriously that one time in SS. I wonder if Ichigo is even moving as fast as he possibly can or is he still holding back like a little, like when he first went bankai against Byakuya and was running circles around him. I also like the fact that Gin a bonafide captain in every since of it, not someone that we were introduced to as a captain without any justification of it (ie Love, Shinji, Rose) is praising Ichigo's mental reasoning. I think that when reading Bleach and seeing beginner mistakes Ichigo makes a lot of people bash and discredit him, when in fact again he is fighting guys with lifetime upon lifetime of experience. People that all they do is train, learn, and practice what they learn, since they could hold a sword. Ichigo is learning on the fly almost what they already know, if he had been fighting as long as them I am sure he would not of gotten so many injuries in his battles. That can be shown by his dad who may not have "damaged" Aizen severly but he has no visible injuries and he is pushing Aizen like nobody has. This chapter really opened my eyes on Bleach, great job Kubo on the chapter.


    Question:
    What happened to Hacchi did he get injured again by Aizen or is he just nursing his lost hand?

    I completely agree. It's simple straight foward and powerful. It has all the bells and whistles of a good old fashioned honest-to-goodness Bankai. What I love most about abilities like this is that it's not about the ability in itself, but it's about how skilled the user is with it. It has the potential to be as weak as Komamura's Bankai if used wrong and surpass Byakuya's if used right, and with Gin being the wielder there are going to be fireworks in this case.

    Whats funny is that if Gin's Bankai DOES get an upgrade that would enable it to rapidly change directions like a crack-headed snaked the battle would be almost similar to Ichigo's battle with Byakuya when he uses his bankai through the manipulations of his 2 hands (which apparently makes his petal blades go faster). Although Gin's would be faster it's pretty much going to be the same in the sense that the key to victory would be Ichigo gaining even more speed to evade the winding, near unpredictable speed and movements, of an elongated blade to get close enough to his enemy in order to deliver his epic slash across the chest finish. Hence why im not too impressed with Gin's Bankai (as powerful and *unique* as it is).

    Im very apprehensive as to what next week's chapter might bring in terms of Aizen's imminent soliloquy on "What is the Hyoka's Will for him". He claims to Isshin that he's been push to his Shinigami limit, yet he hasn't even used his Shikai on his opponent (from what we've seen). All he's been doing was dodging and shooting off incantations but he's already done enough as a Shinigami?? BS Aizen, bs. Im perturbed about that fact because Aizen revealing anything more about the Hyoka's power right now just seems unnecessary and should be saved till the final moment AFTER he's exploited every skill up his Shinigami arsenal.

    "He is now declaring his words to the WORLD!"
