    Pacing sucked ass as usual but still a better chapter than we've had lately. Bringing Shunsui back into the mix was the right call, or at least a better call than letting nanao take out the bad dude by herself.

    It could be worse, it could be better. At the least, it shouldn't so closely resemble the last freakin' fight and drag on for seven fucking chapters.

    Like Cronik said, could be worse(a lot worse, I might add). At the same time, could've been a lot better. True to form, basically nothing happened and I got the chapter read in a little under a minute.
    The flashback was mildly interesting, but it really didn't tell us a damn thing we didn't already know other than the asauchi anecdote, which is a nice bit of trivia but ultimately meaningless.
    Still, it was at least pretty good, by the arc's usual standards. And at least unlike the last time Kubo wasted our time with a flashback, not only was this one short, but it was spent on characters that we know and that deserve to be fleshed out, rather than two random enemy flunkies nobody gives a fuck about.

    I'm with everyone here. An okay chapter; not great, but not horrible, with slow pacing.

    One thing that puzzled me though. What was the deal with the 'changed kimono,' 'no hair pins' Nanao noticed about Shunsui when she joined Squad 8? Was that to retcon a change in look from earlier in the manga? 'Cuz honestly, I thought he always wore hair pins and that same kimono, even when he fought Chad for the first time.

    It's very obvious that Kubo made this chapter the way he did because of how people reacted to the last chapter. Cos last chapter he definitely intended to have Nanao fight X axis alone. But I must say this chapter felt like nothing happened. I couldn't believe how little the content was :eek:. Bleach chapters are even shorter than chinese manhua chapters lol. At least I have 'The Gamer' to read on Thursdays.

    Since that Sword repels Gods with it's own attacks I was hoping it would go into pancake mode so she could bitch slap him even thinking that would help him "see" better. But as everyone else said it was an okay chapter.


    Also i enjoy looking at that gif of curse420s XD

    He used his influence to have her assigned to the 8th where he could have her close and watch over her. Then he changed his Kimono and took out the hairpins so she wouldn't relate him to her mother. Of course, it didn't work. Because she'd already seen him before that by chance.

    This chapter officially confirms that Shunshui wears women's clothing and accessories. What a fashion challenged perv.

    Ah, so kind of a, 'I'll change up so she won't recognize me.' She recognized him anyway, therefore he changed back before the start of the manga.

    Yeah, it's like that. But, eh, I think it would've been like that in real life, too (barring the whole Zanpakutou and powers thing).
