Ichigo at Palace – Fullbringer’s are Back – Is it Grimmjow?? – Bleach 518

Bleach 518 begins to show some fantastic and epic hints in which we’re definitely going to see in the future, and it’s all under Ichigo’s nose! We witness that there is a mysterious man with Urahara who gets angry hearing Ichigo’s voice, looks like Grimmjow to me!? We also witness that Ganju has joined the Fullbringer’s with Ginjo, Tsukishima and Giriko. Ichigo finally arrives at the Palace!

Bleach 518 starts off as Urahara notices that the communication is working, he tells Ichigo that it’s been a long time, and that he knew that Ichigo would be worried. Urahara reveals that he’s reaction is a bit disappointing. Mayuri asks Kon what exactly he’s doing, Kon replies that he has no idea. Mayuri jokes around telling his subordinates to get him.

Urahara tells Ichigo and Mayuri that there is no need to worry because they’re fine, Mayuri asks Urahara how this works, because it’s using Kon’s eyes to communicate. Urahara tells Mayuri that Kon’s eyes are switches, it can act as communicators. Out of nowhere, Orihime appears, she notices Ichigo and says hey, she’s happy that he’s wounded by also safe.

Ichigo’s glad that Orihime’s doing fine, she then gets Chad to come forward. Chad says hello, and he’s glad that Ichigo’s safe. Ichigo tells him that he shouldn’t be worried about him, he was in fact worried about them. Urahara tells Ichigo that he wanted to contact them a little earlier but he was in restrains so he couldn’t get in contact.

Out of nowhere, a man says what are you doing here. Ichigo quickly recognizes that voice, the man also recognizes Ichigo’s voice and quickly gets angry, calling Ichigo a bastard as he approaches the camera. Urahara tells both Orihime and Chad to take this man out of there because Ichigo isn’t there, Ichigo asks Urahara what he’s doing with this man.

Urahara calls out Ichigo’s name, asking if what he had to do was to save Hueco Mundo, then there is no point because everything seems fine. Urahara tells Ichigo to do what is best for himself, he tells him to think on his own and decide what’s best for him. Urahara tells Ichigo not to worry about this person, he was able to make a nice contract with him. Urahara then ends the communication.

Chad asks Urahara if it was okay to say and give Ichigo the opportunity to think for himself,  this could cause him to run away from this fight. Urahara stops Chad there, he tells him that he shouldn’t say things which he isn’t even thinking about. Ichigo will do what he wants from the bottom of his heart. It’s likely that Ichigo will protect everyone till the end.

Both Orihime and Chad have been close to Ichigo for longer than Urahara, for sure they’d have to know what’s better for him, plus the only one who knows Ichigo the best is himself. Ichigo calls the bald guy, Oshe, Ichigo asks if there is a way to get his Tensa Zangetsu fixed in the palace.

He reveals that in the Palace there is a super reijutsu that can reforge the sword into one similar to the original. Ichigo quickly requests for them to quickly take him! They arrive at Kukaku Shiba’s places, it mentions that it’s the palace of her, but it really isn’t. Ichigo quickly gets into Kukaku’s nerves. He asks why they’ve arrived there, she gets annoyed that he didn’t even introduce himself.

She mentions that she’s not going to launch it for them, Oshe tells Ichigo that the Tenchuuren doesn’t have function to go back to Reioukyuu on its own. In the palace there is a super reijutsu that can only be found there, thus there isn’t one in Seireitei. Ichigo asks where Ganju is, she tells him that he became a huge rock and turned into stone, she uses him to hold the banners.

They set it up and quickly launch it. A man appears, it seems like it’s Ganju, he asks if she’s okay with them leaving, she says that it’s fine because during the next attack it will be the end of Soul Society itself. They must let him got, even if it means that uncle is sad. Ganju tells Kukaku to go back to the Training Halls, she must help with the training.

Three other people appear, Kukaku tells Ganju to put some spirit into it, in the next fight he’ll have to fight the Quincy’s even if he cries and wails. Ganju agrees as he walks with three well-known members! It’s Kugo Ginjo, Giriko Kutsuzawa and Shukuro Tsukishima. Ichigo quickly flies when he reaches the beautiful palace with large pillars and numerous floating lands. Bleach 518 ends here!

Wow, can’t believe we got so much in just one fantastic chapter! The return of the awesome Ginjo and Tsukishima and plus we’re one step closer to finding out that it’s actually Grimmjow who’s saved Urahara! Can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 519 epic chapter!

    Well its definitely Grimmjow. I recognized his pants and black hukura or something. If Grimmjow was the one that saved them and killed Kirge then I don’t believe he could do it alone. If you know what I mean. When the Vandenreich conquered Hueco Mundo they gave Grimmjow and Halibel the choose of fighting in their army with Quincy powers to make them stronger then they already are. Grimmjow must have said yes cause he wants to get stronger. Then when he saw Ichigo fighting Kirge, Grimmjow came and killed Kirge with his Quincy powers the Vandenreich gave him. Making him stronger then he already is. The only reason Halibel is imprisoned cause she said no and she doesn’t need Quincy powers cause she’s already strong enough. So Juha is trying to make her submit to his grasp. This “Contract” that Kisuke made with Grimmjow must be that after all this War he can have a rematch with Ichigo. Still didn’t show where Neliel is!! She’s with Peche and Dondakkaka. I hope she returns to her original form soon. They’ll need all the help they can get!! XD

      I don’t believe that would have happened, Halibel would have been the next in line to be the leader of Hueco Mundo as she’s the most powerful at that point, and Grimmjow was left in the desert after Ichigo fought him, I’m pretty sure that Grimmjow is not a team player and doesn’t give a rats ass to what happened to Halibel or the others. He probably just went about his own business doing his own thing. And Halibel was the only defense line Hueco Mundo had, Juha Bach captured her to show the others Hollows that they’re power and should submit and join the Quincy’s.
      Contract wise, it could be anything from fighting Ichigo(as you mentioned) to getting something precious from Urahara, Nel could still be in her normal child form…

        You do seem right about Grimmjow. But honestly, I really don’t think he killed Kirge with his own power. Cause we all know Ichigo defeated Grimmjow, and when he was fight Kirge they were nearly equal in power. And its so true that Grimmjow go stronger to. Like everybody else in Bleach. But do you really think Grimmjows strength increased so much over the pass 17 months that he was able to swiftly cut Kirge in half and Sonidoed right in front of Kisuke and making say “OH NO!” Cause I think Kisuke said that cause he sees how much stronger the Vandenreich make when they give Arrancars Quincy Powers.

          Urahara never said Oh No when he saw Grimmjow, plus you’ve forgotten that Kirge can use Blut Vene and Arterie, if one is being used the other cannot be used at the same time, at that point, Kirge was attacking to get Ichigo in the Jail, so his body was in the attacking mode, not defensive proving that he was vulnerable at that point… And we’ve seen that Grimmjow is powerful but not like Ulquiorra or any of the others above him… Grimmjow would have gotten stronger in the 17 months…. he just found out that he was brutally beaten in his most intense form by a human… that wouldn’t make Grimmjow happy, and like every other character in Bleach, they want to get stronger… Grimmjow practiced and practiced to get as strong as he could…

    I thought Ginjuo Tesumika and Giriku were dead?! I also didn’t know Kuakku.and Ganjus parents were killed by Hollows. It would explain how Kuakku now’s Kido and Hakuda.

        Yeah they were human. So now there just dead Fullbringers. But now there going to be a lot stronger now cause they don’t have limitations like they did when they were human. And I think there on the Soul Societys side now. Something tells me the Vandenreich are gonna try and recruit them in there army. Like the Vizards too. Cause there’s only 5 members left Karakura Town.

      Well yeah he’ll be stronger then before but not so strong that he killed Kirge with just his Sealed Zanpaktuo. He probably does have second release but that really wont do much. Segundo Etapa is just a form that makes an Arrancar more Hollow like and there killing instinct increase. Ulquiorra achieved Segundo Etapa. But he was still the 4th strongest Separate. Plus Sazyal Aporro come back from the dead in Mayuris lab and he achieved Segundo Stalactites as well. His looks more like a Butterfly now. If Halibel comes gets out of the Vandenreich then she’ll achieve Segundo Etapa too.

        yeah but nobody knew about ulqiuioras second release…they ranked him fourth only with his first release…its not just a more hollowish form it the ultimate hollow form didnt u see that ulqi was able to survive even after he took full hollow ichigos attack?and
        kirge was already tired of the battle he had so it wouldnt be dificult
        for grimjow to take him out.

          Even though he survived a Cero from Hollow Ichigo. He still died cause his organs we’re destroyed. And yeah Kirge was tired and defenseless so yeah now I can kinda see Grimmjow killing him. What sucks is that Bult Vene can heal damaged organs unlike an Arrancars Regeneration. And Kirge didn’t expect a sneak attack so his Bult Vene was down. Like when Kisuke blasted him with Kido that mad a huge hole in his chest.

            nope thats not the reason he died…his internal organs were damaged yeah but he could stil survive withought them he stood up and was walking talking and teleporting fine for someone who got atacked so badly he could kill ichigo easilly but his segundo etapa wasnt as perfect and stable as he thought so he died cause his powers were
            fading away..ulquiora told him to kill him cause his time
            was out but ichigo said that he doesnt want to have a win
            like that so he let him die by himself and this match between them staid forever unsetled i can say that i liked that part of ichigo it showed that he is a good guy and he likes fair battles.if ichigo didnt had his hollow he would be dead from the begining.many peope after they saw that battle think that ichigo won when he barely survived he
            didnt kill ulqiorra it was ulqiorras power that killed him he
            used it for too long but it wasnt so stable..i mean even ichigo didnt accept this as a victory i dont understand why would anyone else say that he killed ulquiorra..

              Ichigo didnt kill him, his “Inner Hollow” did. And when Ulquiorra took a direct hit with Hollow Ichgos Cero he did survive for a little longer cause his High-Speed Regeneration technique was his greatest. And the only think Ulquiorra said was unstable aboht his Segundo Etapa was his most powerful attack. Lanza Del Relanpago. He couldn’t control that technique very well when he shot one at Hollow Ichigo and missed. That technique is unstable cause if it explodes near him, he will get very injured. He dead cause his organs were destroyed and he used up all his Reishi regenerating and using Sonido and cut one of Hollow Ichigos horns off. Before he realized he cant fight anymore he asked Ichigo to kill him cause he lost and should die for it.

                yeah but did ichigo kill him in the end?nope and the hollow ichigo wasnt there ether cause after his horn cut he lost its strength and became ichigo again..so u cant say that even the hollow beat ulquiorra cause he was still alive and the hollow was defeated if it wasnt for ulqi ishida would be dead too…he defeated hollow ichigo and then he died so this match canot be called victory i call it a tie!

      Grimmjow is a badass and i definitely acknowledge him as having a greater amount of power than before, he could easily taken on Kirge, hopefully we can see something similar from Grimmjow as we saw with Ulquiorra 😀

    It’s Grimmijov. You can recognize him even just from the visible sleeve of his arm. It’s the same design he used to have.
    Awesome to see Ganju and Kukaku again. Glad to see Kubo bring back these awesome characters from the 1st arc. Ganju looks tough now.
    Uncle is definitely referring to Isshin. That’d explain why Ichigo and Kaien are similar looks wise. So that makes Ganju and Kukakku, Ichigo’s cousins.
    And finally we see that Ginjo, Tsukishima are back as souls.
    Good chapter. Lots of eye openers.

    Plus, bleach’s ranking in this week’s ToC’s is 5th. Ever since this arc started, Bleach has been going up and doing well. Glad to see that.

      You know they could be related. But Kuhakku is a lot older then Isshin. So make there was a Kurosaki clan like the Shiba clan and they both fell. Isshin and Kohakku might be cousins. How knows. They kept saying when Ichigo, Orihime, Chad, Uryu and Ganju. The Gotei 13 said that a orange haired Kaien Shiba was running around. Some say that Ichigo is Kaiens reincarnation. But there probably related.

        Nah. I just think we don’t know how old Isshin really is. He was definitely a captain. There is also a huge possibility that he was a zero squad member also. Kubo isn’t showing the squad design on his captain coat for a reason. Plus, Kyoruku looks young too. I wouldn’t be surprised if Isshin is just a little younger than Kyoruku and Ukitake.

          No Shunsui Jushiro and Restu are over 1000 years old. Isshin only looks older causes hes been a human for 15 years. Kisuke Yoruichi and Teesai are older then Isshin. They were Captains before he was. And Isshin is strong, but not strong that he was a Zero Squad member. And i know for a fact that Masaki is the Granddaughter of Juha Bach and was a Stern Ritter as well. I bet how Isshin and Masakis first meeting was an intense battle.

      If Grimmjow was the one that killed Kirge. Why did Kisuke say “Oh No!” To Grimmjow? I mean come on! Kisuke is much more powerful then him. Plus if Ichigo couldn’t defeat Kirge with his Bankai, what makes you think Grimmjow could have with just his Sealed Zanpaktuo? There has t be a good reason as to why Kisuke would feel thretined by him.

        maybe cause kirge already had a big fight with ichigo and that monster ayon and he was defencless he got attacked from behind it was more than easy for grimjow to kill him. also think that he must be stronger now from how he was back then i mean 2 years
        have passed so he got stronger..cant wait to see more of grimjow

          Yeah i guess your right. Cant wait to see more Grimmjow ether!! XD Also i really want Nel to change into her original form! Maybe when more Vandenreich come to see who killed Kirge and his men would be like other Jagdarmee coiming. Im guessing theres like 10 or 9 Jagdarmee and they are equal or most likely stronger then Kirge. I want to know his how did Grimmjow get away from the Jagdarmee? All of them are looking and recuting Arrancar.

    Not to state the obvious, but Clogs and Hat is standing. As is Inoue and Chad, also what is Chad using to “keep it out of the tent”? Food. He is holding food.

    If it was Grimmjow, Grimmjow would have loved nothing more then to gloat to ichigo about saving his friends. To Yammy, Ichigo is the bastard that chopped off his arm. Look a the usage of the word “Bastard”. Not something Grimmjow would use, but something Yammy would.

    I think its true about the guy being grimjou and the rematch or contract urahara gave him to fight ichigo after the war but wait ….just wait what if grimmjou jaggerjaks was more stronger what if he actaully made a big progress in the 17months he could trained and got the power to have a second resurecion just like ulquoria or even transend it with quincy powers and talking about ulkuoria it MAYBE he might come back idk oda never said he was actually dead and would be nice if ishin got bak to captain of division 10 or at least see toshiru since the kid was his aprentice at the tine and rangiku was still a vicecaptain
