Continuing right along from last time in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Isshin reveals that they can spend two thousand hours in the Precipice World. Contrary to what some people were hoping, it looks like there will be a training arc, or at least the training will be shown parallel to Aizen’s hour in Karakura Town. Considering Aizen was the one who destroyed the sweeper, I doubt he has a clue what Ichigo is doing. While their method isn’t very original, it is nice to see something new coming up (a berserk Zangetsu maybe). Ichigo is in sore need of a power-up, though I have a feeling this “Final Getsuga” will not be enough and his SSJ3 hollow form will be needed once again.

 


This chapter was mainly setup, and hopefully the next few will progress more quickly and not drag out the training. The main question now is how Aizen will go about making his Key, and how much he can do in an hour before Ichigo (or someone else) shows up. With Gin’s powers, simply destroying Karakura Town would be pretty simple, but at the moment next to nothing has been revealed about the King’s Key. Now that Tatsuki has shown up in the story, it’s possible she may play a larger part in this war as well, so I’m looking forward to that; anything is possible at this point.

  1. Tatsuki is my favorite character in the whole show. She reminds me of that girl from saikano who was shinji’s childhood friend Show Spoiler ▼

    Btw if you haven’t watched saikano its a great series, very heart throbbing.

  2. You know, I still don’t get how his dad can use Getsuga Tenshou. I mean, that was pretty much the redeeming ability about Ichigo’s shikai form of Zangetsu. Giving the same ability to another character just because they’re related kinda makes Zangetsu less special to me =P.

    And screw SSJ3. Fusion ha is way more badass (but would be even more insane and nonsensical than anything else that has happened so far it they did it) xD.

  3. If the second hollow form is SSJ3, what’s SSJ2? I can definitely see it being more a parallel with SSJ4 or the Golden Oozaru, seeing as its a combination of the primal side of his power and his controlled side. But then again it wasn’t very controled, seeing as he cut Ishida’s hand off and stabbed him.

    Anyway, time for Tatsuki to get a release form! And maybe Keigo. Though it’ll probably suck.

  4. I hoping that this training arc will not only be ichigo vs wild zangetsu but a 3-way battle between shirosaki vs zangetsu vs ichigo…
    that would be a better and interesting fight

  5. Great we get to see Ichigo’s friends again, this should at least be a little more interesting. Oh and look, Ichigo’s training with his dad and… WHY ARE WE EVEN STILL LOOKING AT ICHIGO?! We already saw him as useless as the Bount Filler. He has trained with Urahara, Yoruichi and the Vizards, I don’t want to watch him train AGAIN, but with his dad! JUST GO BACK TO KENPACHI AND THE OTHERS.

      1. Why do I have a feeling that if we actually return to Heuco Mundo, the first page would probably Mayuri with have his body missing and Kenpachi and Byakuya out of breath?

  6. I bet Aizen knows exactly what’s going on in there. He blowed up the sweeper not only because he didn’t feel like rushing. We’re going to get at some point the usual, as planned. If Aizen has been toying all along with Ichigo he won’t just stop now. He’ll definitely push it as far until he can devour him with pleasure 😛
    Also, what’s rather amazing is that they can assume that Aizen will just chill around town for an hour until they can make their grand entrance again.

  7. Perhaps Tatsuki and Keigo will just screw with Aizen a bit to kill some time? Tatsuki has some hidden power and perhaps Keigo does as well. They will probably say they are awake becuase they spent so much time around Shinigami, Rukia, and Ichigo so maybe that gave them some ability/immunity to wake up.

    Baldy and Pretty Boy (I forget their names) lived with Keigo and his sister for a while. Or maybe they will just talk to Aizen and being the blowhard he is he will be amused to tell them his plans for say around 60 minutes?

  8. Aizen will simply reach into them and take out the pieces of the key, then when Ichigo comes along, says to the tune of “You’re the final pieces, i hope you give me some entertainment before dying”

    Orihime and chad soming in to get smacked around purely optional

    Then in a surprise turn around, Aizen kills Ichigo, destroys the body and the final panel is

  9. so naruto went inside himself and battled the kyubi… and ichigo’s probably gonna do the same thing against the berserk zangetsu… if luffy does something similar like this i’ll be damned! X(

  10. Why are there complaints about a “training arc”? We haven’t seen Zangetsu in HUNDREDS of chapters. There is a ton left to be explained on the front of Ichigo’s inner world, including the hollow inside him, and I’m sure by the looks of where things are going, there is going to be plenty of excitement. There is absolutely nothing to complain about.

  11. this was an interesting episode, and some things make sense already (that “jinzen” thing, where hitsugaya demonstrated before), but with Aizen in Karakura Town, really anything can happen. maybe the protagonists could just chop off the Tenkai Kechuu Urahara-sensei had placed, then Aizen may just get pissed off when he had to get back to the real world, which makes Ichigo have 4000 hours of training?? I guess Isshin can’t really hold THAT long…

    IN OTHER WORDS! Anything can happen, just like Prooof said. We shall see, with time means people can get healed…

  12. YOU FOOLS, CANT YOU SEE I HAVE PERPOUSLY ALREADY SENT THE PAST CHALLANGES TOO ICHIGO TOO MAKE HIM STRONGER, THEIRFORE WHEN HE IS AS STRONG AS POSSIBLE I CAN FIGHT HIM AND EVOLVE MYSELF WITH THE ONLY OPONENT CAPABLE OF CHALLANGING ME. GOOD BOY GIN FOR NOT KILLING HIM ALTHOUGH YOU COULD HAVE HUNDREDS OF TIMES OVER BY NOW, AND FIRST GOING TOO THE GATE WHEN THEY FIRST BROKE INTO THE SOUL SOCIETY BEFORE ANY OTHER SHINIGAMI COULD AND THROWING HIM OUT UNTIL I WAS READY. MWUAHAHAH I SHALL BE GOD THANKS TOO ICHIGOS FINAL TRAINING!!!

  13. byakuya was the moon, that was peirced by the fang. jin was the wind that blew around the peircing fang and evaded before colapsing apart himself. AND I AM THE ILLUSION OF THE MOON ON WATER. i want him too try and peirce me, SO I MAY CHANGE FORMS.

    aizen
      1. Have you already forgotten that whole thing from the soul society arc, with renji being unable 2 peirce the moon that byakuya called himself. and ichigos zanpakto then being the moon peircing fang and defeating him. meanwhile aizens zanpakto is “the reflection of the moon on water” thank about it yourself.

  14. I’m hoping all the people in the town who have spiritual powers get actual powers to fight, probably due to the influence of the Hogokyo. Something like Chad or Orihime’s abilities suddenly coming out.

    😀 I really want Tatsuki to lay some smackdown with some spirtual power assisted martial arts.

  15. i bet that to make the key Aizen need some kind of super energized cero form like the getsuga of ichigo. An that’s the reason Aizen purposely let ichigo improve…mattaku!

  16. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm???????? well I’m no professor, but my math goes like this.. if it took this manga TWO YEARS to go through an ARC that in MANGA TIME took about 30 MINUTES this HYPERBOLIC ARC that spans 60 MINUTES SHOULD TAKE ABOUT FOUR FUCKING YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Screw this manga! “this is coming from a former *couple months ago* Die Hard FAN!!” the characters are soooooo boring already, and now the formula is sooo cliche, and its getting annoying how “shounen Jump” series seem to do the same thing at the same time,ie= naruto power up, ichigo power up…does this mean I’m growing up?? does this mean shounen jump really is for kids??? am i just a sheep like Tool that will continue to read this???? *answers* no, yes, probably! ahhhhhhhhhh…….what is an otaku to do??? I’ll shut up now, maybe there’s a new HSDK chapter out.

  17. I think the zangetsu that ichigo will encounter is his hollow ichigo….and i guess there will be gruesome battle whether Ichigo will be able to control his hollow or be controlled by his hollow. XD

  18. you know ichigo could sacrifice his leg and try to bring back his dead mother in Fullmetal Bleachball. haha seriously though, i feel like every time that bleach starts picking up (like when aizen first showed up) it jus dies down again really fast. plus i’m still waiting on some bankais to be shown… 🙁

  19. Here’s what’s going to happen. Aizen will take an hour to get to the town. When he reaches the town it will take him an hour to setup his key making kido. In the last moment before it is finished, the pillars are taken down in the real world transporting Karakura Town, without Aizen to the real world. Aizen will have to give chase, but since he’s in no hurry he just walks there. In that 3 hour time frame, Ichigo will have leveled up way beyond a power level of 9000.

  20. A training arc. We’re actually getting a training arc? We just had curb stomp battles* and the Big Bad about to destroy the hero’s hometown and we get a TRAINING ARC! I’m starting to listen to my paranoid self’s theory that the editors went to Kubo on hands and knees to beg him to keep the manga going for as long as he could.

  21. So JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure gets pushed into a monthly magazine, and Shueisha keeps running Bleach at its current rate.

    Damn, those merchandise revenues must ROCK.

  22. Tatsuki comes back at the perfect time– she can knock some senses into Ichigo and potentially be a love rival to Orihime. The series has been so focused on exotic fighting abilities that character development (including relationship conflict) has been lacking behind big time. My only worry is that Tatsuki may be captured by Aizen and be turned into an evil puppet, which would be the cheapest way to create “drama”.

  23. Uhm, am I the only one who absolutely loathes Tatsuki? I was thrilled to see her get written out of the series, personally. It might be worthwhile if she shows some Karakura Raizer-style powers, but if all the captains, hollow Ichigo and the Old School Trio couldn’t take him down I don’t put much faith in a dyke with a flaming fist. Tatsuki’s irritating and hopefully she’ll get the same treatment as Chad and Renji in the last 100 chapters (instantly down without bothering to explain how). Of course the other dude is equally annoying, now that I think on it. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if Aizen ate the supporting cast? Nah, Ichi’s sisters are too cute …
