Soul King’s Power! Sosuke Aizen Appears – Bleach 621

Bleach 621 see’s Soul King’s Power overflowing within Yhwach as that power changes hand and it’s target also changes as that power mixed with Mimihagi’s power heads towards Soul Society and Seireitei. All available Shinigami’s get ready and begin attacking the power sent down by Yhwach, where Aizen appears telling everyone to use their reiatsu to crush the small creatures.

Bleach 621 begins as Ukitake falls to the ground as Mimihagi’s power within him begins to disappear, Urahara notices that it seems that its being absorbed. Out of nowhere the shield holding Seireitei blocks a large attack from above, it covers the whole of Seireitei.

Barro asks Yhwach that he seems to be not feeling well as he absorbs the power from the Soul King, small dark creature like things begin to appear, similar to that of Mimihagi. It begins to cover everyone when Jugram mentions that it will do no harm to them as this power is from Yhwach as it seems to be overflowing, it will only harm the Shinigami as the power is now owned by Yhwach.

The power flows down to Soul Society, it seems that it will flow through the hole made before which will begin attacking everyone thereafter. Soi Fon goes ahead and tries to use her Bankai against the creatures pouring in. However, it falls to quickly and covers her.

Everyone gets ready as they jump into battle, releasing their Shikai’s as they begin attacking the black creatures. There is a large surge of reiatsu out of nowhere when we hear a laugh, it mentions that they’re just waving their hands all crazily. Rukia notices that Aizen Sosuke has just appeared sitting on a chair, while Aizen mentions that they should use their reiatsu against the creatures. Bleach 621 ends here.

A fantastic chapter, Aizen finally shows his face to everyone, and it’s going to get even better from now onward. Aizen is one badass, he’s going to show everyone how to fight, can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 622, it should be a fantastic chapter next week!

    This chapter is silent before strom type chapter i think.i totally agree the last sentences by you. Aizen finally shows his face to everyone, and it’s going to get even better from now onward. Aizen is one badass, he’s going to show everyone how to fight, can’t wait for next week’s Bleach 622. but i think 1 or 2 more chapter to see real action, altough i like very much of the plot instead of action “sometimes”.

        So it seems whatever sealed Yhwach 1000 years ago is finally gone. So he was still sealed and he has all this power still? Damn that’s crazy. So now that he is becoming the new soul king, it means the Shinigami are the ones targeted as the enemies, not the Quincy anymore.

          Yhwach was defeated 1000 years ago, and he then went back to his weak and useless form. And I don’t think Yhwach is the new Soul King, it would go against what he said before. Won’t all the sternritters attack Yhwach then, since they “can’t accept the existence of a Soul King.”

            Nope. He stole the power of Mimihagi. Jugram said the creatures won’t attack Quincy, only Shinigami. That’s why the Schutzstaffel were not injured from the creatures. He is now targeting the Shinigami. I have a felling the Soul King did this to the Quincy 1000 years ago. Whatever happened to Yhwach is what you said, he went to his useless weak state. But sense Yamamoto couldn’t kill him, those fight must have been a tie or something.

        I believe so. He had to release some of the Soul Kings powers because 8th too much with his already massive Reiyoku. And I think Aizen will help the Shinigami for his own cause, to be the next Soul King and challenging Yhwach and loosing. Maybe we he dies, Kubo can give us a little flashback of why Aizen is the way he is. Maybe Yhwach isn’t the main antagonist. I mean, he told Ichigo is the leader of the enemy army, but not the true bad guy. Or whatever I’ll have to look back and see what he said.

            I just realized that Jugram called Yhwach The Soul King. And apparently, this chi things were sealed away by the Shinigami, which I am assuming is why the Soul King is in that crystal like thing. So if the original Soul King couldn’t contain all that power, it would make sense the his son Yhwach couldn’t either

    Very satisfying chapter. Nothing really happened, but the last page made it all worth it. Aizen’s right, these things are just minions so the aura should be enough to stop them. The captains can definitely learn a thing or two from him. It’s interesting that Bach is basically becoming the new Soul King since he despises it so much, but it’s similar to real life politics. Just look at the Volkswagon’s deal with the Labor Union and why it didn’t succeed or Anarchists who don’t want Capatilism, but end up using it to further their goals. It makes sense for Bach to take the position while he can. Of course, the power seems to be a little too much for him right now. ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º)

        Uryu could definitely overtake him at that point and push a Zexal esque ending on us. I think I would prefer for Bach to stay as the final villain, but it could certainly work. The power up would also help Uryu to be able to give Ichigo a solid fight. The creatures are definitely pretty fun and quick. If not for Aizen’s advice, they could have eventually overwhelmed the Soul Reapers.

Considering all the stuff Kubo needs to explain, like creation of Soul King, broth of Yhwach, all Shinigami and Quincy history including Quincy Massacre 200 years ago. I say it will last about 6 mote years. Kubo did say this arc would be his longest. And the longest Arc so far is the Arrancar Arc from 2004 to 2010.

Yhwach however, mist have a good reason. His history with the Shinigami is just too much. Yamamoto and Unohana were very evil back than. Hell, Kubo made Ichibei seem very evil during his fight with Yhwach. Whatever they did to the Quincy so long ago Mich have something to do with it. Unlike all the Bleach fans, I sympathize with the Quincy.

                      He is pure evil, but at least it’s a reason that I can sympathize with. With all of the bad things that happen to people every day, it would be nice to have enough power to make it all stop. Bach is also pure evil and I have a feeling that his reason for being so is going to be pretty terrible to be honest. Hopefully it’s good. Maybe Yamamoto murdered his family and that’s why the war started. If so, I will be on Bach’s side in the flashbacks, but still with Ichigo in the present. I just want to point out that Yamamoto and Unohana are still evil. They are helping Ichigo, but for their own purposes. They even got to die that way! I definitely don’t sympathize with the Quincy since nothing can change the fact that they are sending innocent souls to hell whenever they beat a hollow. It’s too late for me to like them anyway, but it’s always good for more characters to have fans so it’s cool.

It’s a bit of a stretch though and I could definitely see it ending in December. Kubo keeps stressing how this is the climax and the final battle after all!

If this isn’t the final arc though, it’ll make him look a little bad since he kept saying that it was, along with saying that the series is at its climax over and over again.

If the series really does last for like 4-5 more years, then it could actually be reasonably close to One Piece before this is all over.

I think kubo is making some changes. That’s just me I see a whole different scenario happening in the near future. Yhwach has already won the RR battle so I think he’s going to retreat into the final place where he will die or something. I personally think Uryu will be possessed by Yhwach whenever he dies or Blondie somehow steals both of their powers cause like I said he has yet to crack or show his sadistic side.

I believe Asguiaro and Luders have Quincy powers because Yhwach put his soul in their Reiyoku, and his soul is connected to their Shinigami side of their soul, so that their Hollow side doesn’t infect their Quincy side. Just like how Kisuke connected Isshin’s soul to Whites soul, and Masaki’s soul is okay, because his Shinigami soul is the bridge between the two souls.

    idk about you guys but every week as a read these bleach latest manga im beginning to think more that Kubo is making stuff up to just keep things going, i mean he has the potential of making an even better story out of this with what he has already but so far i have been less impressed with what he has been putting up..I like bleach alot & especially its characters, the art, the construct of it but lately, the story has been very very dull & weak, this arc had the potential of being the best by miles & probably could have put bleach in all new heights but fortunately, that hasn’t been the case at all, it was really interesting & exciting at first but as it went on it started to get dull, Kubo leaves alot of things hanging & mostly leave for his fans to figure them out watever way they perceive them(eg up to now, we dont know all the war potentials even thou the arc is heading to climax, we dont know Yhwach’s true intentions, we dont know wat happened to Ryuken who was said to be the last quincy & hasnt bn mentioned anywhere in this arc even thou he had a major part to play in it ), he is definetely getting out of touch, i have been reading fans predictions of upcoming chapters & few fanfiction stories & so far they have been coming up with far better ideas than Kubo….

      I think the reason Kubo is “loosing” this touch is because his editors are rushing him too much. He has a way of doing things, but they str making him skip them and show other things instead. I don’t blame him for the things he has shown so far, it’s not really his fault.

        in the end, bleach is kubo’s manga. He can do anything he wants to as long as it does not cause an uproar among fans of his work or something similar. kubo could make the weakest character beat yhwach because it is his manga (this may cause hate mail but what can you do). it does not have to make sense because there is no logic in manga. The people who can accept kubo for his creativity will be able to criticize his work while enjoying it as it is despite its many flaws and PIS and plot holes. The other people who only point out the flaws, potholes, and PIS, will not be giving constructive criticism but hate instead. Kubo must respect his fans opinions but also create an enjoyable manga that can use comic relief at times. All fans will not be okay will some of his decisions but there are some fans who may think it’s okay. Everyone has different opinions so it is impossible to make everyone satisfied.

      It seems that way. I only see Yoruichi standing a chance against just of them. And Pernida just broke her arm do easily. Maybe Orihime has a chance with her celestial like powers. I believe she caught everyone from falling with her Soten Kisshun.

        Hey nick do you think the arrow called, “Seele Schneider” (used by uryu), is an outdated technique? i wonder if the sternritter can use it? uryu says that it is the only quincy weapon that has a blade, even though we as readers know that his statement is false because some sternritter use swords.

          Good question! Seele Schneider is a portable Spirit Weapon used to steal the Reishi of an opponent. Even though Uryu Has Used It As A blade, It’s Actually An Arrow like you said. I believe it is outdated. For the simple fact that Sternritter have Schrift/Vollständig. They have their own unique abilities, so they don’t need a weapon like this. Sense regular Quincy just have Spirit Weapon, Hirenkyaku, Blut Vene and Blut Arterie, and Quincy spells like Springer and Ransotengai, so they need a Seele Schneider to help them fight. So ya I don’t believe the Wandenreich uses Seele Schneider. Uryu got his from Ryuken’s volt. So I can assume Masaki, Ryuken and Katagiri used them in their prime. Hey Trinin, cab I ask you a question? Do you believe Ginjou knows Isshin, Masaki, Ryuken, and Katagiri? He seems to know alot about them. I believe when he was a Substitute Shinigami, the Gotei 13 asked him to find Isshin sense he just left without warning.

            Well ukitake knew him (ginjo). also toshiro knew him as well. And we know that toshiro was serving under isshin while he (isshin) was a captain. So to summarize, i believe ginjo does in fact know isshin and possibly ryuken and of course masaki because toshiro knew about ginjo and not a great deal of time has passed since isshin left soul society. Isshin also was constantly around masaki and katagiri so if ginjo left soul society he would have no doubt stumbled upon isshin, ryuken, katagiri, masaki, and other high reiatsu beings in the world of the living just as he was able to find ichigo and uryu and his friends. At least this is my interpretation of events.

              Very Good! That’s right! All the current Captains know Ginjou to an extent. Sui-Feng even said he killed so many Shinigami to increase his own powers. I guess when he looked for Isshin, he ran into Masaki. Maybe he saw her kill a Hollow and found our she was a Quincy. Also, Quincy do have Reiatsu, but they don’t have large amounts of it like Shinigami and Arrancar. They have standard level of Reiatsu. Plus, Quincy can hide their Reiatsu very well. They have been hidden form the Shinigami sense the Quincy Massacre 200 years ago. Why do I get the feeling Ginjou fought Masaki, she defeated him with her Spirit Weapon and Seele Schneider, and pierced his Soul Chain and he lost his Shinigami powers? Uryu did this twice. First to the 6th Seat of the 7th Division. And second to the 105th Arrancar Cirucci. I’m just guessing.

                  Ya I know. I’m just guessing. I mean, that seems like the only logical way for a Shinigami/Arrancar to lose the powers. But knowing Kubo, he’ll come up with something special for Ginjou. I bet right after he lost his powers, he somehow found himself with new powers via Fullbring. And that’s when he searched for others like him.

                    other alternatives are: willingly transferring your powers to someone else (rukia’s case), having your powers stolen (ginjo did it to ichigo’s full bring not sure about soul reaper powers), or using a technique similar to final getsuga tenshou

    im trying to figure out ginjo kugo. He has an unknown history. According to wikipedia for bleach, ginjo was a substitute soul but no info is given as to how he became one (perhaps isshin gave him his abilities?) Then ginjo soon found out that soul society was spying on him so he disappeared. No info is given as to how ginjo lost his powers either. So maybe he gave his powers to someone else or he fought someone who forced him to lose his powers or maybe he gradually lost his powers if isshin did in fact give him his powers. There could be any number of ways ginjo lost his powers but it remains a mystery as of now.

      I don’t know really. I believe he found out that the Soul Society was spying in him when he was sent to find Isshin. Remember, he did lose his Shinigami powers, and the left the Gotei 13. Yamamoto would have been curious to how that happened and send someone to find him. I believe Jushiro is the one that gave Ginjou his Shinigami powers. Question is, did he have his Fullbringer powers when he met Jushiro, or was he just a normal human? I Know Masaki has a role to play in Ginjou’s past. If he knows about Ichigo That is.

    You guys I honestly don’t really care for the things that are going on as of now lol. But I do think we will get more background stories more so to the “four” who were featured in the first invasion whom were bg9, bambi, cang, and as nodt… The reason I said those four first was because of what kubo said in that chapter about yhwach giving pieces to other folks.. Lung disease, Lonely people, Leg Loss, and Cowards. That being Bg9 is the one who had lung disease..if you go to the chapter of him and sui fighting he stated ” I have never breathed”..that’s more than enough evidence for that. Bambi is more of the coward one. She basically was killing those soldiers because of a deeper meaning, she also went batshit crazy when the girls left her, her powers rely on her inserting something into an object and causing it to explode without touching it…she fights like a coward–exploding and not allowing things to “touch” her by it, she also displayed cowardice when she stated the stuff about Koma throwing away his life. Cowardice a trait wherein fear and excess self-concern or low self-steam override doing or saying what is right, good and of help to others or oneself in a time of need. She even feared about what Giselle was going to do to her which fits she the coward part. Cang Du obviously is the one who had either lost his legs or because of a disease. If you look back While fighting with Hitsugaya, Cang delivered a swift kick to the ice wing of his Bankai, and effectively kicked him away in the air, so is fairy normal to assume he indeed has strong legs. Cang basically had something that caused him to lose his legs as his ability is the “Iron” which probably coated them with great strength. Last but not least we all know As was lonely, the way he talked about senbonzakura and the way he was so afraid of death and all of that he basically fit the whole lonely people that needed their hearts filled. His is completed and showed already so I believe we will see the other three and then the rest of the sternritters like the 8-well 4 or 6 ones( the regular sterns) that are remaining. I think those 8 are going to be much deeper than the other “four” I stated already.

    Or the lonely one Could be Bambi and the Coward was As Nodt. Hence her lashing out about the girls leaving her and the Heart theme which could mean more than simply Meninas making them for fashion but for something of greater meaning probably like friendship bracelets which we know means wherever we are in the world we are forever friends. As Nodt was more of the coward using his fear and projecting it on others. Could go either way.

      It would be cool if kubo gave some background info regading the more known/fanfave sternritter like bazz b, the squad with bambi, as nodt, cang du, bg9, quilge the jail, and especially the elites with jugram. I mean jugram is almost like a plot device, always knowing and explaning everything about yhwach. He was the one who was able to bring yhwach to the royal palace in the first place. I wonder if he participated in the first 1000 year blood war…although he didnt know much about yamamoto’s bankai. I thought he was going to comment about ichibei’s bankai like he did with yamamoto but he instead he only explained yhwach’s “the Almighty” to, im guessing, uryu because he surely wasnt explaining it to the reader right? ?
      Ps- is it sternritters (with “s”) or just sternritter (no ” s”)?
      I might be in the minority here, but I for one would not mind seeing the backgrounds of all the sternritter’s members including but not limited to: Pepe, gremmy, Robert, shaz?, etc. I also have the feeling that the elite sternritter are going to have their background revealed just like the top 3 espada did with grimjow and nnoitra. Why didn’t kubo put ulquiorra’s background history in the anime or manga? I know it’s in the data books but why not in the manga?

        In the anime Kubo can do all the backgrounds. He did it with Harribel. With Ulquiorra, he was so popular, that he made a data book about his past as a Vasto Lorde. Jugram, Robert, Mrs. Black eyes, and Elite Guard seem to be part of the 1st blood war. Jugram looked very worried when Yhwach fought Ichibei.

I am so interested in Lille and Pernida because its so complex on how their abilities are and why they have them.

          That makes more sense. I like all the Elite Guard. I believe Askin was a physician and experimented on himself to resist all substances Lethal to any human. Hence why he said he couldn’t die even before becoming a Sternritter. Gerard I believe was a Nordic general. Lille I see was a master hunter and could shoot anything without fail. Pernida I see her being a Shaman that had the ability of telekinesis. That’s what I got so far for them. Jugram I believe was a Germanic Knight.

      Well when I think of the first 4 I think of As Nodt, BG9, Bambietta, and Cang Du. Like you said. I like how you view each of them. Seems pretty accurate. For Bambietta, I believe she was from Italy around world war II, and she saw all the destructive capabilities from the German forces and the American and Soviet forces. She was very amazed with explosions and loved how they looked and how they destroy anything. It goes with her personality. I wouldn’t say she’s a coward, I like her better than someone like Bazz-B or Pepe. But not that much

      As for As Nodt it’s pretty straight forward. He is the way he is because he has so much fear. He reminds me of the Grudge. How she and her son are so scary and cause so much fear. The only became that way because her husband abused and killed her and her son. He is from either Netherlands or Belgium.

      Cang Du is a mystery to me. I liked how you said he might have lost his legs. His Skill With Hand To Hand Combat Is Impressive. I believe his Schrift is The Iron because of the way he is. He views certain things his own way. He is strict about his own ways. I believe before being a Sternritter, he was hurt very deeply by something and that’s way he is so composed. He’s from China obviously.

      BG9 is interesting too. Its possible he was sick like you said he said he never breathed. I really want to know his real name to get a better idea where he’s from. I know for a fact he fears death. He Hayes the thought of dying. For a machine that’s strange. I like him alot, I just didn’t like how he injured Omaedas little sister. That was just cruel. Out of these four, I consider BG9 the strongest. As Nodt 2nd, Bambietta 3rd, and Cang 4th.

        I kind of do think Bambi is a loner who was never originally apart of the girls but was invited in but in her response she tried to take over by intimidation because she can blow up shit. I just think she’s a lonely coward that needed people to be around her all the time like the girls. That’s just my opinion. I don’t see how Cang should be a mystery he’s basically a martial artist and everyone knows how much an ma appreciates his/her body and i can totally seeing him having some type of disease that “broke” or made him “legless” but yhwach came along and helped him. As Nodt was pretty much explained so no more about him. BG9 is the only one I can think about who had some type of lung disease because of what he told sui gave off so much of a big ass hint. I am too interested in finding out his actual name and why.
