Bleach: Chapter 429
ichigo goes home
ichigo praises yuzu after looking at her tests
yuzu notices something strange about ichigo
isshin isn't around since morning
till now there is no trace of ichigo's reiatsu
she enters ichigo's room
hime: have you noticed anything amiss?
like a stranger following you around
ichi: no such thing
ishida is outside
that reiatsu is inoue's, nothing's up
when ishida goes home, he follows someone whom he sees walking on the power lines
he other guy looks tired and doesn't notice
ichigo takes out a card from his bag
in the distance there is the sound of a patrol car's siren, ishida is found on the ground spilled with blood
the card reads
welcome to XCUTION
end of chapter
So right off the bat, Ishida is fodder?
Would you honestly expect anything else?

Ishida is never gonna be a fodder he's been one of the main charecters for way to long, the biggest fodder of all time goes to Gin.
I meant in terms of power level. I hoped Ishida had become stronger with the year that passed, but seeing that he was defeated that means they'll need help, from Ichigo. Again.
Even if he had become stronger he would still lose just to show how strong the new foe is, plus he's been fighting nothing but hollows I cant see his power going up that much he's not like a shinigami or hollow where they have many abilities he's mainly come from his bow and arrows, Ishida greatest strength has always been his intelligence.
The last time Ishida was laying in a pull of blood was after Renji kicked his ass.
It concerns me that we might have characters stronger than the Espada or Aizen's trio so quickly in the new arc.
They may just be stronger than Szyael though. I think Ishida still has room to grow. He didn't even finish his training, which according to his father, is very important.
This was before they left to HM though so he could have finished it but I doubt anyone has actually trained or done anything.
It seems like they all just dropped off the grid.
Also Chad is NOT fodder. If anything I think he could be strongest one out of them all. It was probably extremely unfair that he had to fight #4 as soon as he activated a new power and was most likely tired.
I doubt they will be stronger than Aizen though. Although i hope by now Kubo would understand that making new villain stronger than Aizen would really fck up power levels. Wishful thinking on my part i guess.
Didn't he fck 'em up royally already like years ago...? :p
