    After 50 chapters of sitting on his ass, Yamamoto finally moves after everyone is out.
    Then, he is oh-so-surprised Aizen had a trap waiting for him. KUBO!

    I just Urahara to jump in at any moment, so Yamamoto and Ichigo can go own Aizen already.

  • February 25, 2010 at 8:14 pmSepiraph

    If Urahara shows up, Ichimaru will deal with him! (that’d be a cool fight)

  • February 25, 2010 at 8:25 pmmike

    we have yet to see yamamoto’s bankai that might do it

  • February 25, 2010 at 8:36 pmAznCoffee

    Urahara obviously.

  • February 25, 2010 at 8:48 pmAvenger

    God, talk about an absolute asspull. Good chapter otherwise.

  • February 25, 2010 at 8:55 pmye4595

    kubo makes aizen like mayuri vs number 8 of how he plans everything ahead, even if it’s deus ex machina.

  • February 25, 2010 at 8:56 pmbanzemanga

    Seriously, it has been a long time since i haven’t watched the anime because they kept dragging the story. But after reading the manga so long i realized that the manga is just worse than the anime since it is the one what is dragging both itself and the anime.

    It does make some sense though. Why did Aizen bring a special-needs kid to the battle? Tard strength. His entire existence is to stop the old man from killing everyone anticlimactically. And now that all those soul-filled subordinates have been sacrificed, Aizen can make the Key using the fake Karakura.

  • February 25, 2010 at 9:11 pmKyuusei

    How many of the cast are now missing a limb or two? Tite likes his armless characters doesn’t he?

    Still awaiting Isshin and Ryuken to show up….

  • February 25, 2010 at 9:22 pmHappy

    Aizen is god, SHUT UP everyone.

    Thank you.

    This chapter makes me wanna marry Aizen! This chapter is the reason he is beating everyone with ease: he is smart and unimaginably powerful, he has a back up plan for everything and unlike Captains he doesn’t dick around. When he has to cut, he cuts; when he has to attack, he attacks; when he has to provoke, he provokes, not just standing on top saying annoying things like “I’ll rip you to shreds… blah blah blah” as certain captains tend to do *cough* ice-cream kid *cough*.

    Aizen will NEVER be beaten. He has no equal. Fighting on his own, he eradicated the entire former-current captains with his unreleased sword. He is there to become god. No, he is already a god. bunch of no-name lame-ass stupid fugly week midget-looking shinigamis and some wanna-be hollows with stupid useless as crap powers and Halloween masks cannot interfere with God’s plans. besides, noone’s even CLOSE to his levels.

    Btw, the only reason some are not happy with the recent chapters is that they either hate aizen or have dysfunctional hormones in their bodies.

  • February 25, 2010 at 9:24 pmanimeE

    This is dragging out way to long. OK Kubo – we get the point. Aizen is awesome! Can we move this along now?

  • February 25, 2010 at 9:41 pmOverMaster

    God help me, but I think I agree with Hapy to some degree: at this point, I’m actually rooting for Aizen to win since he’s the only one in this manga left with a working brain. He deserves to win against the bunch with the absolute worst fighting strategy of all shonen fighting manga… which already is saying a lot.

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:14 pmBROOKLYN otaku

    after glancing the boring “oh so expected generic” Naruto chap, its kinda funny cuz when when u think of it how many “Heavy Hitter” characters in Bleach haven’t shown up yet?? any one of them right now can do a NARUTO and show up to finish wonder-weiss “terrible design btw”….but i digress.. keep building up the bad guy for their inebidible WTF face when they get owned. will it be ichigo who finishes Aizen?..i hope not..standard shounen fair here kiddies

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:14 pmnumba[1]

    happy: no trolling her please

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:18 pmBROOKLYN otaku

    @ Shad P..i thought he needed the “real” KaraKura??

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:26 pmHappy


    “Here” I think is the word you are looking for. And what trolling? Bashing the manga, calling everything shit is “constructive critisism” but my love for Aizen is not? I HATE YOU.

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:35 pmChaos

    how many years had this fight been going on

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:40 pmBen

    I’m kinda wondering why Ichigo hasn’t moved a finger during this whole ordeal. Like block Wonderretards attack or protect Hinamori from the other Captains. And don’t tell me it’s because he isn’t fast enough. Wasn’t the whole (and only) point of his Bankai that it makes him so much faster than everyone else instead of stronger?

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:42 pmBass

    Yamamoto should release his bankai if he hasn’t already.

    That should do the trick against Wonderweiss

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:46 pmdamian

    I think Nick Simmons has taken over for Kubo, which explains all the trolling.

  • February 25, 2010 at 10:55 pmSummonEr

    Yeah, it’s really pathetic the whole SS being defeated this way, and Aizen hasn’t even used Bankai or his hollowed version yet. Well, everybody is already down, will Ichigo alone defeat Aizen, his Bankai and his hollowed version when everyone else hasn’t even touched him (not to mention Gin and Wonderwiss)? Come on.. surely there’s still someone alive and capable of doing something..
    And Aizen was a capitain of Gotei 13, he knows about everyone, and their powers.. and with a brain on his side, it isn’t a difficult thing to do about the other capitains..
    Urahara, I want to see your BANKAI!! ô.õ

  • February 25, 2010 at 11:29 pmakma

    Did everybody for get about ishida’s dad and ishin where are they

  • February 25, 2010 at 11:45 pmJarmel

    Agreed just have Aizen win as he seems to be the only one actually thinking. I mean Jesus nobody think of this shit? I mean christ these people are all hundreds of years old and nobody can come up with one decent plan?

  • February 25, 2010 at 11:47 pmfurifuri

    I hope we can see some kidou now.. since he can’t use ryujin jakka until wonderwise get defeated

  • February 26, 2010 at 12:38 amnbamaniac

    plot twist: unohana retsu kicks aizens ass

  • February 26, 2010 at 12:44 amKozue

    Urahara, Ryuuken, and Isshin need to come in, that would be nice. They’re really all that’s left anyway.

  • February 26, 2010 at 1:16 amabe

    I havent forgotten them at all. Urahara and the Thift Shop Crew, Isshin and Ishida’s dad are all just sitting around shaking their heads probably. I dont think I have seen Yoruichi participating either. Plus you still got the backup squad of Chad,Ishida,Orihime,Rukia and Renji with Byakuya and Kenpachi in Hueco Mundo.Despite the backup squad being totally useless against high ranking espada. I bet they come and manage to do something to keep Ichigo from going Vasto Lorde so he beat Aizen under his own power. Isshin and the others powerhouse characters are probably on some we did our time and its time to pass the torch on the next generation bullness.
    Anyway Aizen really showed his smarts in the last chapter. He made an arrancar specifically for countering Yamamoto. I kind of laughed cause I knew something would happen. It’s like watching Yugioh. “Now i will unleash my ultimate card haaa.” “Not so fast not when I got this little trap card up my sleeve.” “AHH you fiend!” While Ichigo is still standing in the same position as the last two or three chapters in his bankai form with his sword at the ready to do nothing until all his friends are dead. They said strike when you see an opening not when everyone is already dead. Jeez ichigo grow some balls dude.

  • February 26, 2010 at 1:20 amabe

    oh yeah and um Gin anybody?

  • February 26, 2010 at 1:36 amrai

    maybe its about time ichigos dad show up..

  • February 26, 2010 at 2:19 amSol Fury

    The more I see of this, the more I think Aizen’s being set up for his final defeat. Don’t know how or who, but a winning streak like this is more than likely going to end with him getting destroyed.

    Possibly, Aizen will end up on the cusp of getting the King’s Key – only for Zero Squad to show up and attack him en masse, utterly destroying him. And Ichigo’s father being revealed as the captain of Zero Squad, who came to the real world to father Ichigo because the King of Soul Society predicted Ichigo would be the greatest Shinigami of all who would defeat some huge, and as yet unseen, villain a dozen times worse than Aizen.

    Honestly, that’s a logical course.

  • February 26, 2010 at 4:12 amKaliayev

    @Sol Fury
    Exactly, this “progression” is getting so boring, especially when we know that the Royal Guard has been lingering in Kubo’s subconscious for ages. The likelihood of more than one member (Kirio Hikifune) of the Royal Guard having been compromised by Aizen’s zanpakuto is incredibly low. That, combined with the fact that they are the elite of the elite, makes them infinitely more suitable than Ichigo for killing Aizen. The only problem is the fact that, if they are deployed to stop Aizen, their involvement will have been part of the plan for the guy (Urahara anyone?) pulling Aizen’s strings.

  • February 26, 2010 at 6:37 amRise~N Seraphim

    I say Ichigo’s dad AND Urahara will show up and just kick everyone’s ass ^_^

  • February 26, 2010 at 8:10 ampaul

    old man might finally go bankai

  • February 26, 2010 at 8:11 amkaineng

    wow, we really need more sidekicks liao, but let’s see just how Kubo would actually tweak this; it’s not gonna end this soon is it?

    I’m SOOOOOOO waiting for urahara-sensei to show up…

  • February 26, 2010 at 8:15 amRasone0104

    Aizen’s just too strong
    maybe Bleach will end with him winning

  • February 26, 2010 at 8:26 amKaliayev

    Oh, and Yamamoto’s a dead geezer. If Aizen really wanted to create a key by sacrificing Karakura, he wouldn’t be wasting all this time playing with the Gotei 13. Yamamoto is the only person who knows the location of the real key. If he’s suffering from a mortal wound, he will be forced to reveal the location of the key to the next de facto commander. *insert exploit*

  • February 26, 2010 at 10:26 amRuu

    I just want Ryuuken to appear and beat everybode b/c he’s a beast and a quincy on top of that. So really one of his arrows could practically desintegrate Aizen.

  • February 26, 2010 at 11:27 amTriLink

    My moneys on Ukitake making a surprise comeback to deal with Wonderweiss. He hasn’t really had a true one on one fight yet, and he owes Wonderweiss for the sneak attack during the fight with Stark.

  • February 26, 2010 at 1:36 pmDarkness

    this aizaen stuff has been going on for like what 4 years now? really, im no longer surprised.

  • February 26, 2010 at 3:19 pmyanipheonu

    At this point, Aizen’s so strong, I can only think of three outcomes:

    1. He wins, just like the last arc, but simply leaves to do the next part of his plan.
    2. Ichigo pulls out new power, probably something relate to Vizard powers, or even a third release for his sword.
    3. A similar Hax power comes in to stop him. I’m kinda thinking Orihime’s rejection powers will come in handy.

  • February 26, 2010 at 3:42 pmSplash

    Don’t forget Aizen needs 100,000 souls to make the kings key. Wanna bet a dozen espada between them have already eaten 100,000 souls?

    As far as Ichigo sitting on his heels for a few chapters how much time do you think has passed in them 3-4 chapters? Maybe 10-15 seconds? Ichigo is a teenager and he is used to seeing action but he gotta be overwhelmed to see all these overpowered people going down so quickly not to mention the fact many of them are his friends. If you were standing there talking to your best friend and a car came out of nowhere and ran them over would you instantly spring into action to run to them or wouldn’t you stand there in shock and disbelief a few seconds?

  • February 26, 2010 at 3:43 pmv

    Urahara, Isshin, Ryuken or Yourichi. Someone needs to show up and spice this up.

  • February 26, 2010 at 6:09 pmZetsuboushita


  • February 26, 2010 at 10:49 pmMatt

    GODD!!can Kubo please move on..look at how easily the old man got pwned by aizen..we didn’t even get to see his bankai..and also kyoraku and the rest of the vaizards.. -.- i bet the story’s gonna move on like this when ichigo fights aizen..

    ichigo fights aizen, then hurts him..aizen looks suprised..bla bla bla
    thenn~aizen pwns ichigo with his mask(ichigo’s mask)..with ichigo half dead,the overpowered,imbalanced hollow comes out(the one when ichigo vs ulquiorra)
    ichigo pwns aizen..but aizen has something up his sleeves..either his bankai or he has a HOLLOW MASK!(god help ichigo if he has one)then aizen pwns ichigo..then another crazy version of the crazy hollow of ichigo comes out..then pwns aizen~ WEEEEEE~~!!

  • February 27, 2010 at 1:44 amDenshi Otoko

    hmmm….. is the author killing everyone rather to fast….and that Aizen act like a fallen hero not a villein…. in a way… so~ what I’m saying is Aizen past… is it really all that??..oh compliments on wonderweiss but couldn’t Ichigo see that wonderweiss was getting near Yamamoto I mean I get it he didn’t see that coming If he was a Noobs..I mean he’s nearing Yamamoto’s monster class….what was ichigo doing?!?!….was he waiting for yamamoto to be linch?…o well will be waiting for the next chapter

  • February 27, 2010 at 6:46 amMyr

    Genryuusais Kamikaze-attack is actually quite understandable. The whole fight turned out to be worst-case scenario with all of the other captains defeated now, and the old man would rather have them (Aizen included) die thant to let the him create the key. That’s why he baited him.
    Everyone except Ichigo was prepared for this, hence Strawberry is being told to step back.

    Have to agree on the piss-poor writing however, Bleach has been a pointless drag for over a year now.

  • February 27, 2010 at 10:04 pmBROOKLYN otaku

    @Matt.. AHAHAHAHAHHA!!! hilarious man!! yet sooo possible, like many of the posts here. almost makes me embarrassed to be reading this stuff. i guess its at time like these that i appreciate older American cartoons and stuff. “bad guy enters,does bad stuff, hero comes, they fight,bad guy pulls secret card, hero gets beat, comes back and beats bad guy” ALL IN 22 MINUTES HAHAHAHAH!!

  • March 1, 2010 at 11:42 amUnknownYu

    let the Mr.Satan-like character buy time? that “Spirit is always with you” dude.

  • March 2, 2010 at 5:42 amnoctis

    we just hope ichigo’s dad,urahara and others will show up and AT LEAST show their bankai’s before they actually die by the hands of god.. -.- or maybe they’ll show up with some stuff to screw up aizen’s massive power.. :DD
