Yes MOST of them. so more then half Grimmy and maybe Zommari in that mix as well
That's right Shunsui took out a VL with a shikai (not really shocked by that one), Hitsuguya didn't get a singel mark on his body by a VL and he did it with a young Bankai.
Also we all called it BS when Kubo came up with the Espada meanings and we just got it confirmed, he was planning on doing 7 and each one having a meaning of the 7 deadly sins.
LOL at Harribel and Zommari switch.
He he probably wanted to have the whole "OoOoOoO the big mysterious black guy in a high position of an evil organization" kinda deal, but decided to switch last minute since Halibel had boob appeal -_-.
Well thats fucked up. All this time we were hoping Aizen had another secret Vaste Lorde army, for the sake of the plot, but in the end it was all flush. In retrospect, having Hitsugaya big up the VasteLordes power so much only to have them turn out to be the measly ole Espada we've been seeing all along is pathetic. Poor Kube is like a chicken with his head cut off. His sense of planning and direction is like a new born puppy's attention span. He'll just run after w/e's infront of him and looks playable. Exhibit A: Gollum Gin and ButterAizen!!!!
This really makes me think that the new antagonists will be the RG.
is this real? IF it is real then this explains a lot !!!!

Well, we now know that he does come up with stuff as it goes and changes stuff mid way through.
The Royal Guards are the only other powerful secret group that Kube has hinted at and still left in mystery so I guess it will have to be them. A little dissapointed that Aizen's Vaste Lordes were his espada all along but in the end its a good thing cause I was getting tired of these pathetic overrated hollows, Vizard included.
Me and my friend had a lengthy discussion about the integrity of Naruto, Bleach and One Piece and the room in those respective mangas for longevity. Oda thinks though his story so One Piece, to me, has a LONG as way to go and his "part 2" is just beginning!! One Piece can go on for another 500 chapters. Naruto is almost at the end of its ropes but Kishi has some room to lengthen his series and keep it going for at least 4-6 years. Bleach on the other hand just seems to be heading into a brick wall. That interview proves just how spontaneous Oda's thoughts are and to me spontaneous mangaka is a loose canon for a series because they end up whipping out shitty shit (butteraizen) at the worst times just to buy time and make up deuz ex machinas on the spot to tie everything in. Kube's Soul Society arc was the best 1 cause you could see he actually though out that arc a lot better and only at the end of it, where Aizen turned out to be the big baddy, he decided "hmmm maybe I should milk this out with Aizen at the end (which he does well since he's the master of bs stall chapters with nothing to further his plot)... O SHIT I dont know what I'll do though cause i havent planned on going this far, I KNOW!! I'll use the same formula with sould society but just at 7 deadly sin espada and Aizen as the big boss!!" People will love it!" -_-
The main thing the Hollow arc was plentiful at was full spread pages with black ink and drawings, no matter how awesome of an artist Kube is a full spread page to me is bs unless the message before it leading up that moment is profound and plot worthy.
Kube's ONLY saving grace in my book would be a lengthy Hiatus. He seriously needs to take time off Bleach, like a few months, to reformulate the direction where he wants to take it. The way he's so spontaneous makes him more susceptible to fricken fan service. If the story is going bad he'll throw in some Hitsugay in the mix because people like him and it will continue sales rather than Hitsu actually serving a purpose. Im ready for bleach to end so I can focus on better plot driven adventures. One Piece is seriously going nutz now.
I really wish i could get into one piece with all the hype i hear about it. But i seriously get bored trying to get through the first chapter.
^Thats a serious "Your lost" on that 1. I myself had trouble getting into it at first and to this very day I'm glad I gave it a try and kick myself in the ass, hard task, for not giving it a benefit of a doubt sooner. Boredom and need for more manga played a good factor in me getting into it in the first place.
Well I have one friend who absolutely loves it and can make a sound arguement for anything. So maybe i'll ask him to try and get me interested to persist.
