    Sternritter X is an Arrancar? Did I read that, or was something translated wrong?

    Shunsui is aizen 2.0

    Just one long fight of silliness and kubo trying to directly troll the reader while you're aware he's doing it.

    I don't think Sternritter X is an Arrancar. He was seeing with his 'heart' and an Arrancar wouldn't have one.

    As far as the chapter goes: Eh, another power explaining and 'Now the fight really begins...' chapter.

    A more fitting game would have been - PULL MY FINGER.

    if kubo wants people to stop laughing at bleach and start taking it seriously again, this isn't the best way to do it.

    Previous chapter had everyone excited for Shunsui picking a fight, now that the battle is underway you're taking him apart for his zan playing childrens games? We've all known what his Shikai does since he fought Stark, nothing new here.

    i like shunsui's shikai. combo of fun and danger. like him. i hope we get to see his bankai soon and that it lives up to and properly surpasses his shikai.

    As much as I like seeing Shunsui in battle, Kubo should stick with the 3 Shunsui shikai games that we already know of, because as it stands it looks like Kubo is making games up as he goes along.

    I'm hoping to see Shunsuis bankai.

    I think limiting Shunsui's repertoire of "games" would be a terrible idea, he's far more versatile this way, predictability is death.

    Besides, we don't know that Kubo is just making up games, unless you happened to grow up in japan and thus know how and what their children play? Besides video games.

    Fortunately for you then, you are in luck, because Kubo seems to want to go down the route you're desiring; the route that grants Shunsuis shikai an unlimited number of abilities.
    Personally though, I think that shikai has enough depth and abilities already, at least compared to other shikai, thus I would prefer Kubo not inventing new game abilities for it on a whim.

    If nothing else, save the new abilities/games for Bankai. I have actually gotten to the point where I just want him to go Bankai. I honestly don't care if it's new or very different than his Shikai.

    Just Bankai so we can put that checkmark on the Bleach Bucketlist.

    ...Which is a disturbing 180 for me, considering how dissapointed I was Unohana only got a handwave Bankai.

    For the record shunsui has been a giant disappointment to me since he fought Yama.

    I thought the kid-game shit should have been someone else's schtick, and thought it was pretty stupid when he took down the strongest espada (yammy never counted and he never will) with haxx shikai.

    Someone else like Yachiru, you mean? That'd make too much sense. Also too obvious

    That would have worked decently.

    Shinji or one of the other vizored could have worked.

    Just not, you know, the cool looking dual-wielding samurai guy that had badass written all over him in the SS saga.

    He was way too cool to waste with haxx. Although I guess it makes sense since to kubo haxx > all.

    i like his style now. he seems to have a duality to his nature. on one side he is the playful whimsical fun drunk dude but on the other, when the occasion calls for it, he is a serious badass fighter. for me, that's what makes him so cool.

    Bankai = adult games or punishment
