Bleach 556 gets awesome! We see Komamura hide something awesome, after he’s armored is destroyed by Bambietta’s Explosive Bombs, we see something awesome, it’s as though he’s trained and learned to transforms into a human form. He’s learned to do a Human Metamorphosis Technique to which his clan could also use. It allows for them to gain an immense amount of power from it. When he activates his Bankai, Kokujou Tengen Myouou, Dangai Joue, we see a whole different Bankai!
Bleach 555, a number which is always great to see. Ichigo gets all ready after all his training. We see his new, calm and confident form to which his larger blade goes behind him while the smaller on his right leg. After finding out the Invasion began three hours ago, he runs out and quickly goes there. Bambietta’s Vollstandig enables and quickly strikes Shinji, to which it seems like he got quite the hit. Her subordinate’s Vollstandig also gets activated. When will Ichigo arrive, it should be soon!
Bleach 554 gives the Stern Ritters and Quincy’s a great advantage once more. It’s mentioned that after the stolen Bankai’s are returned to their respective owners. The Stern Ritters gain the ability to open up their Quincy Vollstandig (Literally Meaning Complete), which from what we saw with Kirge Opie, it’s something that can’t be easily defeated. Both Komamura and Shinji face Bambietta to which she enables her Quincy Vollstandig, at the same time Juha Bach had predicted this to which he see’s a number of Vollstandig get enabled!

Bleach is awesome, Bleach Cosplay is even better, however Female Bleach Cosplay is just mind-blowing! There are a number of great cosplayers all around the world, the amount of work they put into their cosplay is just amazing, that is why I’ve put together what I think the best Top 10 Bleach Female Cosplay’s are from the posts on deviantART. If you like the Cosplay below, share and follow their other work too.
1. Yoruichi Shihoin Cosplay - the-mirror-melts
Bleach 545 is out and it was awesome. So many questionable things have happened within this chapter that it might just make you crazy. Rukia and Renji are training with their final Squad Zero members while Byakuya is all healed up within the first member. Hiyori and the other Vizards are told to repair the unbalanced connection between Soul Society and Human World, they also receive a package from Mayuri. And finally, Shunsui meets with Ichigo’s friends telling them to prepare to part ways with him.
Shunsui is now the Captain Commander, and for him to come all this way to just see three mere humans is nothing short of suspicious. He reveals and tries to shock them by telling them that they should prepare to not see Ichigo again. Is this just a lie from Shunsui or is he actually telling the truth. We’ve known that Ukitake and Shunsui to be key characters in Soul Society, and they played an important part in many arcs, so why do I think there is something missing here.
It’s believed that both Orihime and Chad, who are Ichigo’s closest friends have received powers directly from the Hogyoku. If Shunsui can get Keigo, Tatsuki and Mizuiro to regret their powerlessness to help Ichigo then there could be a way in which they could still develop unique powers to help Ichigo, just like Orihime and Chad are. Therefor Shunsui could use the powers they have to his advantage.
The fact that Shunsui mentioned them parting ways could possibly mean that Ichigo could either die during this war. Otherwise he could join Juha Bach in the war, if this was his thought then it would mean that Shunsui has somehow found out the truth about Ichigo and his past. Shunsui is a clever guy, he wouldn’t just walk into a situation knowing nothing, he’s planning it really well, plus the fact that he came by person must mean that he either doesn’t want other people to know what he’s doing, or that he’s the only one that can perform his plan.
Another suspicious thing about this chapter was the fact that Hiyori received a package from Shinji and Mayuri. It’s understandable that Shinji would want only them to do such a thing because they’re trustworthy. The way they could repair the distortion between the Human World and Soul Society could be to either kill more hollow and to send more humans souls to Soul Society, thus balancing it out.
The more suspicious thing about this chapter would be the fact that Mayuri sent something back to the Human World. Could this point at the fact that Mayuri knows where Urahara is in the Human World and that he knows his in Hueco Mundo. The fact that Hiyori received the package could mean that she’s the only other person who could do this.
Furthermore, what is in the package which Mayuri sent, could it be some kind of human body control device which was spoiled to us, or could be a few order on how to collect something from human souls within the Human World? Could be anything. Furthermore, I notice that Hachigen had regained his arm once more.
Concerning Shutara, her techniques concern the people and how they wear their clothes. Could this point to material which best fits a person, for example material which gives the person a certain ability or power. Furthermore her creation unknown to us, however I’d like to guess that it could be the basic Shinigami cloths, Shihakusho. Otherwise she could be the creator of artificial limbs like the four she has access too. Furthermore, as Rukia is worried about Byakuya during his meeting with Shutara, I’m not as worried as he’s less of a coward than of them.
So what did you think of my thoughts? Do you agree? Do you any suggestions to the questions posed in the manga and what I didn’t cover you can comment on using the comments section.
Bleach 545 shows Rukia and Renji’s efforts to becomes even stronger as they go through the training set by Squad Zero members, now it’s Ichibei Hyosube. We also see Hiyori talking to Shinji about a certain package, which Hiyori receives. She also receives one from Mayuri. Shunsui also appears in the real world, to find Ichigo’s friend in front of him. He tells them to prepare their parting with Ichigo. We also see Byakuya being all healed.
Bleach 545 begins as Yuzu at home begins to make the food, she calls Karin and Isshin to eat their lunch. Isshin mentions that he will treat his next patient then come to eat. Karin will come once she kills the game boss she’s facing. Yuzu mentions that she’s doesn’t even stop playing for a minute. Yuzu notices that Ichigo has not yet come back from training camp.
Renji and Rukia are both training hard, they face each other and state until the time has come. The bell rings after them, they shout and Renji falls over. He mentions that what they’re doing is cold blooded. Rukia mentions that what they’re doing is nothing but staring at each other, how could he get out of breath. Renji mentions that he doesn’t like what they’re doing. Standing around and pointing their swords at each other isn’t his idea of practicing.
Rukia mentions the same, that she doesn’t like pointing her sword at friends. That being his point, however it sure is hard to breath is that place they both mention. The concentration of spirit particles there is immensely dense. The sensation of feeling like I was being crushed by something no longer exists but It still feels as if she’s moving around in water. Furthermore, there might be other ways in which the dense concentration of spirit particles might be affecting them.
Rukia gets a call, she accepts the call and tells Renji that it was Kirinji, she mentions that Byakuya has finally regained consciousness, thus he seems to be healed. Kirinji mentions that he certainly took a long both, possibly the longest anyone has done so in his waters. Kirinji asks if he’s feeling woozy. Byakuya mentions that there is no need for such concern as he still lacks the strength needed to feel woozy.
However he’s made it far for him that he will need to regain the stamina needed to feel woozy once more. Renji gets happy that he’s finally back. Renji mentions that once he’s eaten and had his blade prepared, he’ll have to go to the next stage. Which they both fear. Which is Senjumaru Shutara who’s been described as the Great Weave Guard.
Renji mentions that going through that stage was a nightmare for him, by far the worst experience of his life. Rukia mentions that it probably was, both of them were literally stripped of their dignity, just thinking about it gives her the shivers. Renji begins to think of it once again while Rukia shouts at him not to.
Shutara mentions to Rukia to take his Fundoshi off, Rukia objects to this mentioning that he thought that they were only being fitted for new Shihakushos, she should be able to do so while his Fundoshi is still on. She mentions that it’s okay, she’ll simple take his measurements after she detaches little-renji from him. Renji quickly gets naked mentioning that it’s coming off.
Renji snaps out of the recollection, Rukia mentions that from his attitudes, it seems that he’s only recalled his memory before taking his clothes off, after that it would probably be really bad. Rukia mentions that she is okay with Renji going through with it, however she looks towards Byakuya and how he’ll react.
From the back comes a loud noise in which Ichibei Hyosube appears, as the Eyebyall Monk (Eyeball Monk) who mentions that they’re just gossiping like some hens. He also mentions that when they arrived, the spirit particle density overwhelmed them to the point that they were motionless on their knees gasping for every breath. And now they’re regain some stability. He mentions that he wants to continue his training towards the inner sanctum. Rukia and Renji both shout in eagerness.
In Soul Society, Shinji mentions to Hiyori on the phone that he’s not giving her a direct command however he’s asking as politely as he can so she could do it. Hiyori mentions that she can sense him, and that he’s not doing anything what he’s saying, in fact he’s just asking.
Shinji mentions that he’s going to leave it to his hands, she’s the only one that can pull it off, he then mentions that she should be feeling super special at this point, then hangs up the phone. A delivery arrives from Soul Society. It seems that there were two people who sent her packages, one being Shinji and the other being Mayuri!
Hiyori gets excited mentioning that when life gives you lemons, you squeeze the lemons until they’re dry. She quickly gets prepared forming a team to repair the distortion between the human world and soul society. Everyone is surprised that such a team has been formed.
A few hours later, Keigo, Tatsuki and Mizuiro are walking home together. Keigo asks if they have any idea where Ichigo’s gone. Tatsuki mentions that she wouldn’t know and that he should try Karin and Yuzu. It was mentioned that he’s going to football camp, but that ended months ago. He’s obviously lying to them. Since Chad, Orihime and Ishida are also missing, there seems to be something fishy going on in Soul Society.
A man stand behind them, Keigo asks who he might be. Mizuiro mentions that he’s the captain of the 8th division, he heard it during the debacle with Aizen. Shunsui is flattered that they’d remember something without even exchanging who they are. Mizuiro asks what he’s doing there, mentioning that if a captain has travelled all this way, it must be important.
Shunsui steps forwards and looks at them directly, he then mentions that he’s there to pass an important message to his friends. It’s about Ichigo’s friends and how it related to Ichigo’s eventually parting away. This could be a grave thing, a different meaning are attached to here too. Bleach 545 ends here.
What an impressive chapter, and it surely did seem to be a long one. Furthermore it seemed like Shunsui is definitely checking all his option, could what he’s just done a way for him to recruit even more people or is he trying to tell them something. Can’t wait to see what he means during next week’s Bleach 546!
Bleach 517 is today’s fantastic chapter where members of Zero Division (Squad 0) all talk to the captains, some are noticed to have known them previously, like Kirio Hikifune is the large lady. We discover that Senshumaru Shutara has taken Renji, Byakuya, Rukia and Zangetsu, they also want to take Ichigo back to the Palace. Ichigo receives a call from the Kirge Killer in Hueco Mundo!
Bleach 517 allows the members of Zero Division to enter the place, they all seem to be happy and cheering themselves on, Ichigo notices that they’re more like children, the member with the long hair cheers that they’re here. Kirio Hikifune asks everyone how they’re doing and if they’re eating and sleeping properly. Shinji states that they’re kind of different from what he was expecting, she quickly smacks him across the face.
Shinji wonders why she slapped him, she tells Shinji that it’s been way to long, she asks if Hiyori is fine, Shinji wonders who she is referring him like she is, Shinji thinks for a moment when she reveals that she’s Kirio Hikifune, she’s described as Kukuou (Literally Meaning King of Cereals).
Shinji is flabbergasted at how much Kirio has changed, she tells him that she hasn’t changed much all this time. One of the other members walks up to Unohana telling asking her how she is, he asks if she’s using the healing techniques he showed her properly, she says that she is, he quickly shouts saying that after all the deaths it seems like she’s not.
The large man comes and quickly says oh well, he also seems to know Unohana, he then tells them that they can all talk later when they’ve done what they need to first. Shunsui quickly says that they haven’t changed much in such a long time. He then asks why they’ve come there.
The large man notices Ichigo, he tells Shunsui that since the King of Souls gave them a will, they’ve come to rebuild the 13 Divisions, but first the large man mentions that they’re going to take Ichigo to the Palace. Soi Fon get’s angry shouting at all of them, she says that after just waiting for Seireitei to get destroyed and coming here to talk about rebuilding is a mockery.
Out of nowhere, the man with the long hair twists Soi Fon’s arm backwards, he could easily break it with just one twist, she notices how quickly they can move, he tells Soi Fon that they’re suppose to protect Seireitei while the Zero Division protects the Soul King, if they’ve come there to help the Captains, then they’re not doing their jobs correctly. The large man hits the other member with long hair on the head.
The other woman’s who’s name is Senshumaru Shutara quickly tells them that whatever they needed to do has already been done, she uses her skeletal arms to capture everyone and everything she wanted, she grabs, Renji, Byakuya, Rukia and Zangetsu. Everyone notices at how quick she did her job, all they need to do is bring Ichigo.
Unohana tells Senshumaru Shutara to stop, she mentions that the people inside the object she carries will die if they leave Seireitei now, they cannot be taken away as they need more medical help, the Zero Division member who taught Unohana her techniques quickly reminds that they need to take them because they’re going to die unless he himself saves them.
He mentions that they won’t be able to completely recover them unless they get their help, plus Byakuya Kuchiki is likely to die unless they help, Unohana cannot do anything, that’s why he has to heal them himself, he mentions that what she’s suppose to do is not heal now.
Mayuri quickly asks how Senshumaru Shutara was able to get into his laboratories to get Zangetsu, he mentions that she had broken into, he’s being underestimated badly. Senshumaru mentions that she did not break in, she just opened the doors because they were already open. She’s described as Ooorigami (Literally meaning Guardian of Weaving).
Ichigo stops everything, by telling them that he doesn’t need to be taken because he’s wounds are already healing, they are not as terrible thus he’ll be fine in Seireitei, plus he’s got other things to do. The large man tells him that the reason for him coming is different, after this Ichigo hears a voice, it seems like it’s an urgent message from “That” person in Hueco Mundo! They say that its nice that everyone is there. Bleach 517 ends here!
What a crazy chapter, the introduction of these members as stupid is an understatement, they are really powerful and damn quick, they are really worth of being in the Zero Division protecting the Soul King. Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 518 to find out who “That” person from Hueco Mundo really is!
Bleach 515 increases the intensity of the situation, even after they receive help from the medical team, they all mourn for the death of Yamamoto, they seem as though they no longer have any hope in them. Ichigo is seen to have shoulder what he heard from Juha Bach. We also find out that both Byakuya and Zaraki are alive, but could no longer be fit to fight.
Bleach 515 starts as Juha Bach and Haschwald as well as many of the other Quincy’s have all gone back to the Vandenreich HQ. Soul Society in an emergency in which they all try and get all the wounded back. Isane talks to Unohana that all finally all the wounded are being taken back. During the battle not even one person was carried here for help.
Isane asks Unohana if it was really right for them to stay in the 4th Division building during the battle, if they had gone to the battlefield, they could have had saved more people. Unohana quickly stops Isane and tells her that she must not talk based on her feelings, it’s easy to get anxious and leave this place but she must be strong and control what she does even in this situation.
Unohana notices that Isane cries, she tells her that there is no need because no matter what happens, they must not leave the building, that’s the last order in which Yamamoto had given Unohana gave to them.
Ichigo has returned and had been given some basic medical treatment. Ichigo is given a paper in which it states that Urahara had sent a message stating that Orihime and Chad are all safe. They were unable to get a vocal message but when they do, they’ll do their best to confirm it with Ichigo.
Madarame gets angry and tells them to quickly let him go, he shouts captain, as he has concerns with Zaraki. He keeps on going until someone get him in restrains. Ichigo notices him, Yamada notices Ichigo and tells him to come with him so he can heal him, Yamada tells Ichigo that he needs to be healed because anyone looking at his wounds would understand that they’re bad.
Shinji appears behind Ichigo, he tells Ichigo that he’s finished operating on Rukia and Renji. This time it was too late to heal with just reiatsu, so he had to operate them to suture the Reishi where it was necessary. Currently they’re out of danger, they’re conditions are stable, Ichigo tries to go when Rukia calls Ichigo’s name.
Ichigo notices Rukia and asks if she’s okay, she says that Shinji just mentioned that her condition is stable, she calls Ichigo a fool for not listening, Ichigo then tells her that she sounds healthy even in her condition. Rukia thanks Ichigo for coming to protect Soul Society. He mentions that or course he would come, but he couldn’t do anything this time.
Shinji corrects him by telling him that he chased away the enemy boss, Juha Bach. He hadn’t come, they would have gotten it worse, he should be more proud of himself. Ichigo notices what Shinji said. Someone calls for Ichigo, saying that Captain Kurotsuchi is looking for him, for the Zanpakutou thing.
Ichigo goes, Shinji notices that he’s always busy, he didn’t even heal his wounds, always thinking about others. Rukia asks why Ichigo had such a sorrowful face. He says that he seemed to have a hard time too, his Zanpakutou was broken in half and in the end he wasn’t even able to save anyone. He must be tired. Rukia is surprised.
Rukia feels as thought he might be shouldering something much more serious. At the first division HQ, the captains are surrounding Yamamoto’s sword, Zanka No Tachi, the say that the couldn’t find his body, it might have been destroyed by Juha Bach, which it was. The captains look down in grief for Yamamoto.
A reporter arrives stating that Byakuya and Zaraki have both escaped death! However it’s difficult to think that they’ll be able to resume their duties as Captains, also there is a chance that they might not even wake up. Soi Fon is angered, telling him to stay back.
She says that she doesn’t want to hear such a thing because Yamamoto has just passed away and they hear more about death, she’s angered by this fact and keeps on going until Kensei tells her to stop it, Soi Fon tells Kensei that he’s so calm and collected just because he disliked Yamamoto, he says How dare she say such a thing.
Komamura screams and tells Soi Fon to shut up. He mentions that she’s not the only one who wants to scream out aloud, she’s scared by this, everyone looks down, Shunsui appears and tells them to stop all this fighting. He reminds them that if Yamamoto was here, they would have all got a knuckle from Yamamoto. He would be shameful of them.
He mentions that the 13 Divisions weren’t created to mourn the dead or to feel sorry for a destroyed Soul Society, it was originally created to exist and protect Soul Society. He mentions that they should all look forward since they are all the 13 Division. Bleach 515 ends here.
A great and awesome chapter, Shunsui has tried to build up their morale, will this work and when will Soul Society strike back the Vandenreich? It’s going to be epic finding out all the awesome information, also what is Urahara hiding from Ichigo in Hueco Mundo? Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 516! It’s going to be awesome.
After a long 17 Months, Ichigo trains with the Xcution to regain his powers to helps his friends and family. He regains his powers but in the form of his Fullbring powers which is then stolen by Ginjo. Ichigo kills Ginjo as he was betrayed by Xcution.
When Ichigo regains his Shinigami powers, he notices that Shinji’s power was used to help restore his own. Around a 100 years ago, Shinji was once the captain of the Fifth Division, he was then betrayed by Aizen and accidentally part of an experiment where he developed a Hollow Mask. This meant that he had to go to the Material World to hide. Shinji and the others created Vizards (Visored) which where ex Shinigami’s who have Hollow Masks.
Shinji’s material world form looks quite similar to his new look as he is still wearing a tie and the hair cut is very similar. His current hair cut has a slanted fringe, like Kensei’s New Look, Shinji’s New Look is also better since they are all back at the Soul Society. Shinji is wearing the usual Shinigami garment which all captains must wear.
Finally Bleach 479 manga released! After a long wait due to the Christmas Holidays, Bleach 479 is here and translated. Titled “Goodbye to Our Xcution” is probably the start of another amazing arc which could explain about the past of Ichigo and his family.
We start of with Captain Ukitake in his house while a report comes in. “Kurosaki Ichigo is in good health. He was victorious against Ginjo Kugo in the Material World!”, this repeated once more so Ukitake could hear it properly. Ukitake replies with “What a relief” as if he knew Ichigo was going to win.
As Ichigo calmly returns to Soul Society, he sees Renji. Renji furiously asks why Ichigo is there all of a sudden. We quickly move where all the captains are being told that Ichigo is currently present within Soul Society. All being surprised that he’s there.
As Ichigo reaches the place where Captain Yamamoto is located, he sees that all other Captains are currently present there waiting for him. “Wow. Everyone came out to greet me, Huh?”, they all seem a little angry and surprised that Ichigo is there.
As a fantastic return, Kensei, returns to the Soul Society as a Captain. Kensei was part of the Vizards (Visored). Ichigo asks “You became a captain?” Kensei replies to “Shut Up. I said come in! You didn’t come here to chat, did you?”. Yamamoto comes by and compliments Ichigo for his hard work.
Ichigo quickly gets to the point and says “I came to take back the corpse of Ginjo that Renji brought here, and bury it in the Material World.” All the Captains are shocked at what Ichigo has said. At this point, someone really special comes by, Shinji Hirako comes wearing a full captain garment. He could be now be a Captain just like Kensei.
“That guy was fucking around with your family. You can forgive someone like that?”. Ichigo quickly replying with “This isn’t a matter of forgiveness. My family and friends are back to normal. I’m Alive. And he is a mere Shinigami Representative.” Says Ichigo.
This part of the chapter ends here. Ichigo very serious about his request and Captain Yamamoto acting as if his understanding. Sadly Bleach 480 will be releasing in three weeks time, on the 8th February. Fortunately, this chapter has hyped the story up a lot. Since I love the Vizard characters, there come back is an absolute treat, Tite Kubo has listened to out praise.
