Ichigo vs Juha Bach – Ichigo Finally Arrives! – Bleach 512

Bleach 512 reveals how Ichigo’s determination will go as far as protecting Soul Society even thought it has nothing to do with him, the last explosion was based on Ichigo’s entrance from when he broke the barrier which another Stern Ritter had placed. Ichigo finally faces Juha Bach, it seems as though it’s all about to go down!

Bleach 512 begins as large number of soldier’s reiatsu start to diminish as they are killed at a spontaneous rate. Even the power of the Ancient Shinigami Genryusai wasn’t able to stop the Quincies’ Invasion until someone shows up. A large crack in the barrier above occurs, a man from the Research Labs tells this person that he’s relived that he’s arrived, he wanted to open it earlier but it wouldn’t work.

A Stern Ritter shows up to kill the large numbers of Shinigami’s trying to bring Ichigo to this world. Ichigo asks who this person is, the Stern Ritter reveals himself as Shaz Domino, after saying just a few words, Ichigo quickly attacks him without delay, he smash’s something into his face instantly killing him. A large flash in the sky with reiatsu appears in the sky, this was due to the Barrier breaking due to Ichigo’s intense power.

Everyone, even Juha Bach, looks towards the sky to see who this person is, he runs out after destroying the Stern Ritter inside the barrier. He notices that both Renji and Rukia are hurt but still alive. Some of the higher Stern Ritter notice that their comrades Reiatsu had vanished.

Ichigo approaches Byakuya, Byakuya asks if Renji and Rukia are still alive, Ichigo replies that they’re fine and alive, he’s happy that they’re both still alive, he then says that he won’t last much longer. Despite being one of the Captain of the Gotei 13, he wasn’t able to defeat the Stern Ritter who faced him. He let many of his soldiers die causing suffering of their subordinates and families. He says that he’s ashamed for not being able to do anything.

Byakuya then says that Ichigo is a human, not only should Ichigo not be involved in this but he shouldn’t even be there. Yet Byakuya asks him a favor even after the despicable behavior of his. At this point, Byakuya lays his eyes upon the full body of Ichigo and asks him to Protect Soul Society! Ichigo’s determined faces has no other answer but yes!

Haschwald realizes that this reiatsu is that of Ichigo, Juha Bach also agrees. Haschwald asks if they should eliminate him, Juha says No and that they’re leaving. As Juha Bach walks, a large and thin object lands right in front of Juha Bach stopping him from walking. Juha Bach notices the sword and quickly knows that it’s Ichigo Kurosaki’s sword.

Ichigo also arrives right behind the sword, he picks up the sword and looks towards Juha, he faces Juha Bach with such a blank emotion to his face that he has nothing else to do but to defeat Juha Bach as quickly as he can. Ichigo get’s ready to protect both his world, Soul Society and even Hueco Mundo. Bleach 512 ends here.

That was an awesome chapter, Ichigo’s arrival has brought even more action, yet some say that it’s too generic for Ichigo to arrive because he is not a part of Soul Society. Nevertheless it’s going to be an awesome to see Ichigo go up against the head of the Vandenreich, Juha Bach, during next week’s Bleach 513 chapter. The mysterious repetition of words could prove that the other Twin from Royd and Loyd in action.

    Correction. He doesn’t spin the sword around. It’s just how he is holding the sword. It’s the same position as how Byakuya holds his sword before he releases it for his Bankai.

      Yeah I think that’s just an image of him in the process of picking up his zanpakuto. He just pulled it out of the ground while staring intently at his target- Juha Bach.

      Hmm before i wrote that I actually look at the image properly, if you look at the second last page, his arm has twisted clockwise because of where his thumb is, in the next full page, he then spins it anticlockwise to get that direction in the image. Yeah it’s kind of similar to Byakuya’s…

      1. deucee9s2wylde

        It only looks like he spun it around “counter-clockwise” because the first image is a view from the top of him pulling his zanpakuto out of the ground. In the second image he barely got it out of the ground and hasn’t fully recovered it… and also a view from the front.

    Awesome chapter, awesome drawning style. Ichigo’s so much of cool 😀 Just can’t wait fot the colourings, next chapter and anime. Fuck you Kubo, you play bad games with my mind 😀

    But, nothing special in story, except two points. First, finally the freaky quincy from Research and Development shows up and I suppose we guessed his abilities right. Next, the Hueco Mundo mystery. It is still a fucking mystery! A flashback must be huge to show it all, so I think things went like:
    1) Urahara faces Kirge Killer
    2) Ichigo breaks the cage
    3) Akon opens Garganta.

    So, I think Ichigo didn’t fight the HM guy. So, how could he leave Urahara in HM? He knew about his problems, because Urahara dropped call in 501.

      yeah it’s going to be awesome seeing all the coloured versions. What do you mean by the Quincy from the Research and Development? I thought that was someone else controlling the person. Yeah the flashback has to be big enough because I really don’t want it to be tiny, I’d also like to see Urahara’s Bankai in that flashback 😀
      Plus Ichigo looks much more beaten up than before so he could have gone back to see whats happened… But Urahara could have told him to go back to help in Soul Society
      I think Akon sent a few of his men to open the Gate, which we saw being killed by that Domino guy.. Still a mystery of who it could be, and yeah i’d really like to see the fight between Juha Bach vs Ichigo Kurosaki, but may not happen during next week’s hopefully we go back to Hueco Mundo to finally see who it could be..

        Well, there was a guy, who controlled Jidanbou and the girl from Research and Development. And we saw these little blades with crosses, remember? And now we see them again, so I think it’s just the same quincy. And we guessed he can control mind or something. And yeah, Rukia was not beaten by him, I guess.

        Urahara’s Bankai is too awesom to apear in a flashback 😀 Hope he uses it to defeat the final villian. I noted some changes in Ichigo’s appearance, but I thought that’s from the fight with Kirge… Who knows, maybe he fought the mystery person, maybe he didn’t.

        Ichigo vs JB might happen, but if it does, it will be interrupted by the zero division for sure. They simply can’t let Ichigo die.

          Ohhh right, It seems I forgot the details of that chapter lol, thats very true, Urahara’s Bankai deserves to be shown asap but not up against the person to beat Kirge Opie.
          His appearance has gotten worse, possibly because he was trying to break the cage and went back to help Urahara or something… I’m hoping that he didn’t fight the mystery person, because I really want to see Urahara fight them because he/she looks powerful as hell!
          Hmm yeah they may need to learn how the Quincy take Bankai’s from other people except from Ichigo..

    Awesome chapter. Incidently it was the only Weekly Shounen Jump manga that I liked this week.

    Glad that Ichigo finally broke out…with some possible help, but he still did break out. Now I hope Ichigo takes these guys apart and saves the day. They’re strong, but I think Ichigo should be able to defeat them with ease. He did acend and all so he’s at another level.

    Plus, he hasn’t looked this serious since his fight against Ulquiorra. Things are finally getting real and it’s Ichigo’s time to pwn! Next week’s should also be intense unless it cuts away to another plot

      I think after seeing Byakuya with his own eyes and the way he asked him for help, for such a prestigious captain to ask for help, for him to save Soul Society is no joke, Ichigo will take this request to heart, and the fact that he didn’t wait for Shaz Domino to end his sentence usually means that he wants to equal the playing field for the number of Quincy’s and Shinigami’s bodies on the ground. He wants to dominate Juha Bach, it’s like the fight between Ichigo vs Ginjo, or the fight between Ichigo vs Aizen (Final), the way Ichigo acted, was like silent but really pissed off inside, it’s as though he wants to smash every cell in his body!

          😀 Althought since the arc is likely to be a lot longer, i presume that either Ichigo will be defeated here or Division 0 will step in and stop the fight somehow, this giving Juha and Haschwald the opportunity to escape and regroup..

    Artwork was beyond awesome in this chapter especially the Ichigo spread….. pure badassness!!!! 😀
    also the chapter portrays the sense of desperation the Gotei 13 captains are experiencing…. a sad moment for Bayakuya due to his utter helplessness….. IMO Bayakuya is one of the prime characters of bleach & one of the strongest aswell….. Im sure Ichigo will go all out on Bayakuya’s request who he respects as an older brother,…. partially due to Rukai & Renji but also due to the fact that he was one of the captains who were there to help him regain his Shinigami abilities.
    ill also add here that Toshiro , Kenpachi, & Bayakuya although required to show restraint being captains, openly acknowledge Ichigo as their equal whereas he is still only a substitute Shinigami (Not even private rank :D)
    Im guessing this level of respect is what will fuel Ichigo to go all out against Juha Bach…….
    i also predict Ichigo will not be able to defeat Juha bach because that will leave no reason for Division 0 to show up in the first place….. :S
    Im sure Ichigo will be able to give Juha bach a tough time at the cost of sustaining enormous damage to himself…. Juha bach will have to use Genryusai’s bankai ability to subdue ichigo’s onslaught.,, at which time Div 0 will show up and help Ichigo,….. this will force Juha Bach to retreat and fight another day,… whereas the combined shinigami forces will be left to restructure and account for their losses…… im guessing Ichigo along with Div 0 & Kenpachi & Other characters (Damnit Kubo!!! just frikin have him awaken his Bankai!!!) will raid Juha Bachs HQ for the final counter assault.
    ..*The other characters would include those who didnt have their Bankai stolen and ofcourse the ichigo gang orihime , chad , renji , rukia , etc….*

    Btw im curious where is Ishida in all of this….. cant remeber if ive seen him in the Final arc even?!?……. will he still fight alongside Ichigo or has he sided with the Stern Ritters……..

      Fully agree the artwork which Kubo shows us are totally epic! The expressions on his face are damn sick!
      Hmm noticed that you spell Byakuya’s name as Bayakuya? and yeah totally agree that the respect which he showed Ichigo was like wow, you wouldn’t expect for such a high ranked captain, as well as being a head of a noble family be like that towards Ichigo, a human!
      Yeah they all shared their powers with Ichigo, hopefully the power they gave Ichigo has ran out, and he’s making his own now… Yeah the respect and the fact that thousands of Shinigami died will drive Ichigo into raging towards Juha Bach.

      Yeah hopefully Division 0’s appearance is around the corner, Aizen’s appearance is also nearly here! Hopefully Ichigo notices Aizen and notices that he’s going to have to fight two people, he gets even angered and pressured that it drives him crazy!!
      Hmm completely forgot that Zanka No Tachi has been stolen, Ichigo’s not going to have a chance against Yamamoto’s Bankai… Division 0 may show up with some kind of defense from Zanka No Tachi therefore leading Juha Bach to run and regroup, Aizen may join Juha…. Basically a similar idea to yours 😛

      Lol Ishida is probably training or talking to his father about his powers, they probably know about the attack, he showed up in the start, in Ichigo’s bedroom, and fought some Hollows, and told Ichigo that he couldn’t go to Hueco Mundo.. Hmm good question, I think since the Quincy’s now regard Ishida as knowing old knowledge of Quincy’s, and not being part of them, they don’t bother with him, so he’ll probably join Ichigo or something..

    First off i thought them repeating the same thing was weird so i checked out another website for a better translation and the words that were supposed to be spoken but instead were repeated r hasvald says do u want me to eliminate him and juha bach says no were leaving. i found the correct translationon mangastream.com and kissmanga.com i think the people that translate for mangapanda.com need to pay better attention when they r translating it from japanese to english. But both the quincy twins r dead cause its been confirmed on Bleach.wikia.com

      Well Yamamoto’s anger did take the better of him during his fight with fake Juha Bach, he was completely destroyed at that point, but since it was the fake and not the real, Juha Bach saw Yamamoto’s Bankai and was able to steal it, at that point, he couldn’t do anything because his Shikai isn’t as powerful… nor did he have any time to put up a defense..

    Finished reading in about 30 secs. Damn you Kubo and your short chapters!! Anyways apart from that the chapter was very good. Seeing Byakuya alive makes me believe there is still hope for him. Probably only Orihime could heal him at this point but we still dont know what turn the story will take. Is Ichigo gonna lose or will Bach just leave and assign Haschwald for the job. Depending how fast the situation clears itself, will determine Byaks chances of surivival.

    Apart from that i liked how he admitted defeat, discarded his pride and asked for Ichigo to protect everyone. When we look back at the SS arc and what of a douche he was its not a stretch to say how much character development he has recieved untill now. I really hope he survives.

    The thing with Domino confused me a little tbh. Was that room above the sky or probably in the search and development center? Was the guy cut down or not? How did Ichigo break free from the cage? Whats with Urahara and the mysterious person? That are all questions we need to know. I heard about the theory that Ichigo slashed him and that the room was in the sky but tbh i am not sure about it. This chapter was good in terms of transition but still Kubo has to start explaining things.

    Artwork was epic as well. Kishi and Oda cant compare to this. What the guy does in a week is incredible.

            The criticism people usually have towards One Piece is the artwork. While I agree that lately Kubo gives less attention to the surrounding, his artwork is way more superior than Oda. Oda is too childish in artwork. I think Kubo just skips the background cause he can release chapters on time like that.

      Ill have to agree, Bleach chapters have all of a sudden started to get smaller and shorter… Although the artwork is literally mind blowing, the story development is somewhat short, there is a lot less chatter and a lot more showing..
      Orihime is nowhere to be found, it’ll be too late to when she gets back to Hueco Mundo, that is if she can revive the dead..
      It’ll probably be one of those stupid moments when Juha Bach is walking away after a speech, then Ichigo angrily attacks, this causing Haschwald to block the attack aggressively… the somehow Aizen appears, then Division 0 appears, then the whole disappearance act happens.. just like how Aizen went with Gin and Kaname…

      Byakuya is an awesome character, even at near death, he asks if Rukia and Renji are okay, he may die, but we’ll always know that he was an awesome dude!
      No, No… That room in the sky was a barrier made room by the members of the Research crew, who were sent by Akon, they were trying to open a Gate for Ichigo, but it didn’t work, as mentioned. Domino somehow got in and quickly started killing them, the guy who said Sorry was saying it to Ichigo when he returned from Hueco Mundo, he dies… Ichigo asks Domino who he is, he starts explaining who he is when Ichigo doesn’t give a donkey’s ass and attacks him! Releasing a huge amount of reiatsu and pressure breaking apart the barrier…
      Kubo is a badass when it comes to drawing, agree they can’t come close to this..

          He threw the sword to prevent Juha from moving. They were about to leave. So Ichigo intimidated them by doing that. I believe he shunpo’d so fast that one second there was no one there near the sword and the next he is picking it off the ground. I think his speed has increased somehow cause the SR’s were like his reiatsu disappeared. They couldn’t keep up with him.

      Everyone knows ichigo won’t win this fight if he attacks Bach now. And mostly it might be haschwald who might fight Ichigo now.
      And this is how it is in every series. The main character always comes to the rescue.
      Take One Piece or Naruto. Luffy is always the one who solves all the problems around the world ain’t it? The war in Arabasta, the fishman war ?

      And naruto ? He defeated Pain who Jiraya fought and lost to.
      Get over it. It’s how it is and it’s how it will always be in every series.

      And Ichigo may have beaten Byakuya but that was only because the hollow inside him surprised Byakuya and gave him a lethal strike. Right before that, Ichigo froze unable to move.
      Maybe at his peak Hollow mask on, Ichigo might be a stronger than Byakuya but that’s it. But Byakuya might be able to beat Ichigo cause he uses Kido also.

      If you saw and read, the Twins which copied Juha Bach actually copied both his memory and power, so Yamamoto did in fact beat a powerful Juha Bach, but due to the Real Juha Bach’s trickery, Yamamoto revealed his Bankai and thus he was unable to actually do a lot because the Real Juha Bach had taken his Bankai… this is the story until now when Ichigo arrived, i know your pissed because Yamamoto didn’t do much, but in fact he did, he would have clearly won against Juha but since it was the fake ones he couldn’t do much…
      I think when someone mentioned Ichigo and Byakuya equals, I think they may meant it in a way of what Byakuya said to Ichigo in the chapter, Byakuya didn’t care for the rules anymore and asked Ichigo to save Soul Society…

    @Tite, maybe you just want a new ending.. not the so normal and always happy ending where the super hero will come to save the day, where he is severely wounded and beat up and already use almost 50% of his strength and he still manage to defeat the BOSS .. I do understand that its kinda Corny, and i do understand what you are thinking. But even given the fact that that might be the ending we still don’t know what happen or what would make it happen, and that what makes us so crazy about it. Even tho we know that Ichigo will save Seretei or the captains or the humans as well, we want to see how he do it. We want to understand the twist or complexity of the story. We want to know what will happen.

    Another short chapter (getting tired of short chapters…zzzzz). It is very clear how weak

    Ichigo against Juha Bach so its safe to say that this is not the beginning of the end but

    another long story to watch out for.

    Now i have another suspect about the guy who point his sword on Uruhara’s face. Its either

    Ryuken Ishida or Uryu Ishida. Clue is where the last chapter ends, when JB said that

    Ichigo got Blut Vene.. How the hell he got that? And how the hell he escape that cell made

    by Opie? So i guess it is done by the help of another Quincy and there are 2 quincies that

    will possibly help Ichigo, its either Ryuken or Uryu Ishida.

    Im also thinking what made Uryu special. I remember when an enemy said to uryu (im not sure if its opie..) that “his

    majesty is expecting more than that.” tho i cant remember if he said it exactly that way.

    And also, it is clear that Juha Bach is planning something on Ichigo. That is why he’s

    avoiding him, not the fact that Ichigo can kill him but they’re letting Ichigo live for a

    purpose. I can still remember a part of a chapter before the Fullbringer saga where a guy

    on shadow is watching ichigo and said they will use him to destroy the gate. Or he will be

    the key to open the gate.. So i guess its JB pertaining to Ichigo. I guess i need to do a little backtrack.
