This is a list of silly, or Just for Fun wild mass guesses for the series Bleach Shikai Edition. More serious entries should go in one of the open pages.Please add new entries to the bottom of the page.
Tosen's idea that Kenpachi is a demon is frighteningly accurate because...Kenpachi Zaraki is really an amalgamation of souls who all died before their time in the most violent ways possible. Think Menos Grande made out of whole's and you'll get it. Who are these souls? Well let's review: He woke up in Zaraki, basically the projects of Soul Society. The only thing he knows how to do well is kill, and he loves it. Can't think of anything else. Repressed anger anyone? He's the absolutely most badass, twisted looking character short of the Espada and takes pains to look even more so. And whenever he sees our favorite Blonde-Orange haired hero goes after him like it's a blood feud. Who is Zaraki Kenpachi? Let's just say I think his Bankai will be 'Swarm, McCormick.' Every.Last.One.Of.Them.
Urahara Kisuke is actually Willy Wonka from the original 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory'Think about it. The coat, hair, and hat are reminiscent of each other and they both keep canes, even though neither of them seem to have any difficulty walking. They both possess mad scientist traits and bizarre methodology, and both go to extreme lengths to test characters and care nothing of anybody's safety.
Bleach is a Shonen series, but uses gender flipped Magical Girl tropes.Not so much a guess but an observation. Let's take it from the top.
Warren Peace from Sky High is actually the son of Zaraki Kenpachi and Yachiru in another dimention.It's okay as they're both Really 700 Years Old in this world. I think. Warren's father is called "Baron Battle" - which squad captain loves to fight the most? Warren also has that streak of reddish-pink hair - who has pink hair? Both of his parents have super-powers - Kenpachi is nigh-indestructible and more intelligent then he appears and Yachiru is super fast, super strong, and super adorable.
Byakuya was - briefly, long ago - the (* much* ) less eccentric pupil of Kamina.Seriously, how many other people could make such a potentially embarrassing mistake into a Crowning Moment Of Awesome!?
Bleach is in fact Kubo Tite's resumeThis theory is based around the fact that most of Bleach's cast is very well-dressed, at least when disguised or when inhabiting the human realm, the fact that the manga covers usually feature important cast members impressively dressed in clothing that would be in-character only in a non-sequitur setting like said manga covers, and that fashion-minded and highly talented Ishida Uryu is in fact a Mary Sue of Tite. Therefore, Kubo Tite is in fact a failed or aspiring fashion artist who is using the manga and anime primarily as a vehicle for his clothing designs.
The King of Soul Society is in fact one in the same as the King of the Shinigami Realm from Death NoteThis would imply that the Shinigami realm exists on some higher plane separate from Soul Society. Perhaps the Death Note shinigami and Bleach soul reapers are invisible to each other?
Shotaro Ishinomori, manga-ka responsible for creating Kamen Rider, was an agent of the VizardSpecifically, Mashiro. She had a lot of Rider-like characteristics 100 years ago- oval eyes, vaguely insectlike, speciality is kicks, powers come from use of The Enemy's experimentation, etc. Presumably, at some point in the seventies she got rather bored with the whole "wait until the story starts" thing, and hired a guy to create a rather fictionalized version of herself as a superhero. He took it and ran with it, and she was so pleased with his work that she adopted some of his ideas, like the scarf.
Orihime is making the whole thing upThe story resembles a long, involved version of one of her weirdo fantasies, Ichigo is the star, and before any of this happened, she was the only one who even knew who Ishida was.
Ichigo is making the whole thing up.Just look at Tite Kubo's face. He looks a lot like an older, albeit not as pretty, Ichigo.
Orihime is unspeakably kinkyCaused by a total misinterpretation of the word "fantasies" in the above WMG. Seriously, imagine what her sexual fantasies must be like. Assuming she and Ichigo become a couple in the end, and her CloudCuckooLanderness isn't utterly destroyed, Ichigo is in for some... interesting roleplay.
Ichigo and Naruto are alternate universe counterparts of each otherLet's check the facts, shall we?
Ulquiorra is really...L, from Death Note. First of all, compare the two http://account-hijacker.deviantart.com/art/L-quiorra-79603022 The same apathetic expression in all situations, the same monotone and the same general disregard for others. Keep in mind L is the guy who admitted to going after Kira for the hell of it. The scenario is, L died, and his soul through a temper tantrum at losing to Kira, and being betrayed by his only friend. When the Shinigami show up to collect him, he freaks out, and flees, or else transforms into a hollow right away, considering his reaction when he first heard about Shinigami, it's not too far of a stretch to conceive L already has some hatred towards them. So L transforms into the Hollow Ulqiorra, defeats the Shinigami, and retreats to Hueco Mundo. He then devours other Hollow because he discovers they taste like candy, and he needs to sate his sweet tooth. Eventually, h thecomes a Menos Grande, but manages to retain his personality and becomes an Adjuchas, and eventually a Vasto Lorde. When approchaed by Aizen, he leaps at the opportunity to get back at the Shinigami who he hates so much (but probably doesn't remember why anymore), and goes on to become an Arrancar, who looks almost exactly like he did when human...
The King of Soul Society is The King, aka Elvis Presley.When he shows up, he shall kick all *** with The Power of Rock.
The king of the Soul Society is Shinigami-Sama from Soul Eater, and Isshin and Death Scythe are from different dimensions, competing to be his replacement.They already finished the "reach your strongest possible form" stage of the competition, and are currently in the "who can have the more successful Successor" stage of the competition. Kishin are the SE equivalent of Hollows, Witches are basically a form of Arrancar (or possibly Visored, I haven't seen enough of Soul Eater to tell).
Orihime is Devon.I found these similarities listening to Inside the Fire by Disturbed:
Bleach is set in Old World of DarknessSoul Society is an island in the Tempest, or possibly a Far Shore. Soul reapers are wraiths of a legion unaffiliated with Stygia, who are given the power to fight spectres and bring wraiths directly from the Shadowlands to Soul Society. Hollows are spectres; most are the shade caste. Arrancar are nephwracks, and the Espadas are possibly malfeans. The Visored are spectres who have lost control to their psyches, and thus emerge as wraiths with spectre powers. Hueco Mundo, naturally enough, is the Labyrinth.
Orihime is the reincarnation of Himura Kenshin. Tatsuki is the reincarnation of Sanosuke.It explains her hair color, her overall demeanor, and her high spiritual power. If she were to ever pick up a sword, she would be very proficient—she just hasn't tried. The reason why her power manifested the way it did is because of a spiritual aversion to killing or causing harm.
Sosuke Aizen is the spirit of Uchiha Itachi.His name is vaguely similar to that of Sasuke, which got me laughing at all the potential leaps of logic to make them the same person. But then I thought: Mangekyo Sharingan. Who uses illusions to fight, having surpassed physical action? Who betrayed everyone they know and that trusted them to fit a "higher cause" and temporarily sided with the archenemy of their former people? Whose power can be used against anyone who sees its foucus? All Itachi. He'Engl to using the same old flawed logic that lost him his family in the first place just so he can take over the Spirit Realm and wage war on God/the gods in a Utopia Justifies the Means gambit. He keeps Tosen around, less because he's useful (which he is) and more because his power and blindness remind him of the later years of his life as Itachi.
Orihime is actually a descendant of Clow Reed or related to him in some way. Alternately she's related to Sakura from TRC.Think about it, a lot of things would make sense then:
Shakugan no Shana takes place in the Bleachverse.Or vice versa. Going along with the theories that there are alternate versions of Soul Society (and possibly the idea that these are fictional within the 'Verse in question), Tomogara are Hollow eating existence so that they can exist. The Flame Haze are the Shinigami of a different analogue of Soul Society.
The Bleach-verse and the Soul Eater universe are alternate versions of each otherThis is basically the (il)logical progession of the above theory and the "Aizen wants to eat the King" theory further up. The divergence point was the imprisonment of the Kishin. In the Bleach-verse he got trapped in the spiritual plane which was better at keeping him contained, Soul Society was formed and most of the weirdness was restricted to the spiritual world. The 'King' thing is misinformation intended to prevent anyone from getting any ideas (see the theory above). In the Soul Eater-verse he got trapped in the living world and Soul Society was never formed. Both of these things caused much weirdeness and since there isn't much of a spiritual world, said weirdness manifested in the physical one along with a generall blurring of the line between physical and spiritual, plus the absence of a holding area for dead souls (ie Soul Society) rendered psychopomp duties largely obsolete and necessitated the more pro-active measure of going after the things that want to eat them while said things are still alive. Despite the differences, in both universes there was a need to insure a steady supply of people to protect the souls of the dead and who were capable of fighting the 'king'/kishin if he ever got loose, and in both universes this led to the creation of schools to train people up for this purpose, the Shinigami Academy in the Bleach-verse and Shibusen in the Soul Eater-verse. Okay, that's that bit of craziness over with, feel free to start picking holes in it.
Kenpachi's sword spirit/Bankai is...A bunny rabbit! Rule of Funny, plus it probably isn't a very (normally) aggressive creature after years of the punishment their clashing spiritual pressures put it through (but those things can turn mean in an instant).
Aizen is really Elvis.Elvis died and went to Soul Society where he proceeded with his plans for world domination.
Uryuu is a fan of The Wheel of Time series.The endless descriptions of dresses are what inspired him to take up sewing as a hobby.
Urahara is the king, Gin kills him, Aizen kills him, Isshin kills him, the real Aizen kills him, Ichigo kills him.And Orihime inherits the earth.
Tite Kubo came up with the idea for Bleach after he had a near death experience at a Mexican Day of the Dead festival.That's why Hollows wear those masks and speak spanish. The Soul Reapers came when he was rescued by a group of Kendo students.
Aizen is doing it all because he's meta aware of the shonen manga nature of reality due to being a soul from OUR realityLike a guy who's studied a subject so often he knows it on an instinctually subconscious level, Aizen is actually the mixed up, time displaced reincarnation of an otaku from our reality, and while having lost all or most of his memories due to the process realizes gut deep the inferior nature of reality around him and thus is able to effortlessly manipulate all those around him and predict events simply by following a (not so) complex shonen protagonist formula and treating everyone like the stale archetypes they are. (take a breath) Realizing that he can succeed with patience against the relative dimwits around him, he seeks to overthrow the 'King', free the Hollows, Humans and Shinigami from the tired formula they're forced into playing and ultimately spread out over all similar realities building a geometrically increasing army until he's powerful enough to conquer the prime reality of shonen manga and gain true ultimate power...Dragon Ball Z.
Stark is Tony StarkOnce you get past the fact that death has apparently made him a lot lazier, their personalities are really similar. So are their looks. And their names are the same. Obviously, at some point he's going to release his sword and the result will be awesome red and gold powered armor. You know it's true.
Aizen's real plan is to kill anyone who reads this page.Aizen hasn't appeared to help his arrancars lately because he's found away to escape the series itself and observe Kubo Tite's writing. He has also come to the realization that his author draws inspiration from this page, as is evidenced by Yammy being the 0th Espada. He has all contributors to this page under mass hypnosis after viewing the release of his Zanpakutoh on T.V./Youtube, and is having them add increasingly ridiculous guessings, which will send anyone who dares to try and read the entire list in one sitting into uncontrollable laughter, ultimately killing them. With the primary contributors and viewers gone, Aizen will be free to assume control of the page and create guessings that favor him, causing Kubo Tite to write him into a sound, swift victory against the entire Bleach cast.
Gin will fight Komamura and defeat him with a dog whistleHe'll do it for the lulz.
Urahara is Santos Dumont in afterlifeWell, it's not only about the hat, but because both were considered quite silly for their time (Urahara is still considered silly), both were inventors, and both are famous for some, er... Problems with invention claims and that stuff (except that Urahara's case was pretty much the opposite of Dumont's, but karma works in weird ways). Oh, about his appearance? Let's just say that afterlife did good on him. Kenpachi, on other hand... Poor man.
Komamura suffers with his fox-like shape due to overly mistreating the Furry Fandom.Karma's a friggin' *** .
Barragán was a wuss before he was an ArrancarAll his aura did was make people complain about how much prices had gone up and yell at kids to get off their lawns.
Orihime's zanpakuto is a leek.Well, if she would become a soul reaper, that's what it will be. I mean, what humans or soul reapers can spin a leek at 360 degrees with their wrist?
The King of Soul Society is the Heavy from Team Fortress 2
The King of the Soul Society is the Shaman KingThis could work. Shamans can control spirits, and the Shaman King is one who has managed to take control of the Great Spirit. As a result they could use their skills to control virtually every member of the cast.
Ulquiorra's Second Resurrección was made up immediately after Kubo realized how dumb he'd made Ulquiorra's first Resurrección look.Really. His first form looked stupid.
Zaraki Kenpachi has one true weakness, he is afraid of needles.There is no proof as of yet to support this but lets face it, how many series have you seen feature uber badass who can handle gapping wounds like they are just a scratch but scream like little girls when they see a nurse with a needle in her hand, it just seems to be sort of classic characteristic a guy like Kenny would have.
Aizen's Couch is his bankai.Or, at the very least, his bankai's disguise.
Chizuru could have defeated Harribel, Apache, Mila-Rose and Sun-Sun single-handedly.Remember the Karakura-Raizer Team episode where Chizuru used her powers as Karakura-Raizer Erotic to sudue that busty female Arrancar? Now imagine Chizuru's reaction to seeing busty babes like Harribel and her Fracción. And if any of the girls released their Resurreccións especially Harribel, Karakura-Raizer Erotic would go into Super Hentaiyan mode out of sheer LUST.
Wait...Soul Society as akronym is SS...This sounds rather fishy!
A Shinigami will find a way to successfully fuse with their Zanpakutou spiritThe main villain of the OVA tried to do it, but went insane. So, maybe Kubo will use this idea as a power up for a Shinigami character. Maybe in this new form they would gain the abilities of their Bankai enhanced even more. So if Yamamoto were to have it, he would become fire.
Pesche is...a Jedi!He has a lightsaber, so why not? He's the hollow formed not only out of a Jedi, but Mace Windu! Just cause, y'know, that would be fun. Wait, better idea, to be a Fracción they would be at least gillian, a hollow formed of many hollows. Now, what group of similiar, powerful group were genocided upon? The Order! Something caused their souls to be moved to a different reality, becoming a Menos then eventually...PESCHE!
Don Kanonji is Isshin's Vice Captain.
Kenpachi will achieve bankai... and it will be... Super Saiyan KenpachiI actually lean more towards the theory of Kenpachi being Yachiru's shikai, but think about it: he would prefer not to have any kido-type bankai or anything that doesn't directly attack the enemy, so a power-up would be ideal for him. Furthermore, he is one of few characters in the series to have long, spiky hair. Finally, he has a Saiyan-esque love of battle, and, though it has not been implied or stated yet, a Saiyan-like ability to increase greatly in power after being injured in battle.
Kenpachi tastes like candy.That's why Yachiru never leaves his side. And he's so strong that she can bite him all she wants and it won't do any damage.
The name of Kenpachi's zanpakto is Chuck NorrisAnd after hearing this, Aizen will scream like a little girl and run away, never to be seen again.
Orihime isn't HaruhiShe's the Anti-Christ. Her reality-warping superpowers are explicitly defined as the power to reject events - she either destroys the negative events that strike her shield-shield, erases the negative events affecting objects within her healing-shield, or outright obliterates whatever is struck by her sword-shield. In other words, Orihime's superpower is the ability to destroy anything she doesn't like, which is diametrically opposed to Haruhi's powers of creation. Additionally, her powers are closely linked to the number 6...
Ichigo's family is related to the Kuwabara family.Think about it. Both the Kurosaki family and the Kuwabara family have advanced spiritual awareness, and one son from each family (Ichigo and Kuwabara) developed advanced spiritual powers. Both Ichigo and Kuwabara have similar personalities and characteristics, being school-age street punks who are actually kindhearted, can see ghosts, and are very protective of their friends. Karin and Shizuru are also somewhat similar, both being strong-willed girls with some spiritual awareness, but no involvement in their brothers' affairs. Not only that, but both Isshin and Kuwabara's dad (shown here) look similar and have had dealings related to the Spirit World/Soul Society, which might just be two separate parts of the same dimension. Lets face it, if they're not related, then at the very least, they're WAY too similar for it to be a mere coincidence.
The King of the Soul Society is Haruhi Suzumiya.Because Haruhi can pop up anywhere.
Grimmjow is afraid of Zommari.Because Zommari ate Aaroniero.
Ichigo will shoot himself when he turns 27.And no one will get this way too obscure joke.
Aizen only wants to take over the world because Lelouche Geassed him into it.The final battle will be Ichigo vs Lelouche. It will be JYB's greatest challange ever.
When he was alive, Shinji was a priest called Xellos.But don't let it get out: it's a secret.
Zanpaku-to are the daemons of the dead.They're an extension of the soul, they have their own names, personalities, and forms reflective of their wielder's fighting styles and personalities... Yes, a daemon supposedly vanishes when a person dies, but not all souls have zanpaku-to in Bleach; maybe it just takes a certain amount of supernatural power and willpower for a dead person to get them back/get them at all.
Arrancar are another version of the daemons of the dead.It could be an excuse for their animal-based traits... and for that matter some of their names. Though I'm not sure how their own zanpaku-to fit into the equation, even though it is stated that the nature of an Arrancar zanpaku-to is way different from a shinigami one.
Onozuka Komachi of Touhou is related to Rangiku enough to explain her natureBoth are lazy big breasted shinigami that manage to get on their master's nerves i can only picture what would happen if both Rangiku and Komachi got together much to the ire of Shikieiki and Hitsugaya.
Both Ichigo and Rukia are in love with Orihime, and are eventually going to start having (sometimes comic-relief, sometimes not) territorial fights over herThere's actually a lot that suggests the two like her, and given recent events and their strong personalities, it makes sense for them to grow more protective/slightly possesive of Orihime. Due to her growing self-esteem issues, Orihime is not going to comprehend the two of them liking her and just think she's causing trouble for their relationsip. (making her self-esteem even worse.)
Somehow, Orihime has two different dimensional counterparts.
Lisa Yadomaru is japanese-american and got to the Soul Society in the past via time paradox.Because there is no way I will accept that a natural born japanese girl- born and raised in japan centuries ago- has the first name Lisa.
Nel is Yotsuba&!
Aizen's real plan for creating a new King's Key......is to trick us tropers into making this WMG page so long it collapses into itself, as a substitute for the 100,000 souls required otherwise.
Kyoraku likes to hang around at Duel Monsters Tournaments with his Shikai released.Which is why everyone in Yu-Gi-Oh! takes their children's card games very, very seriously.
Ryuken Ishida is related to Sachie Ishida (Hayate's doctor) of Magical Girl Lyrical NanohaThe two of them are doctors, and it's possible that Ryuken insisted that Sachie not become a Quincy since she isn't the Last Quincy. It's possible she shares his attitude on it, especially since she's a Muggle to the point of not knowing about magic, the TSAB or who the Wolkenritter really are in the third Sound Stage of A's when most of the cast's family and friends have heard about them.
Bleach takes place in an alternate history where Japan and Mexico are the only countries.Why not?
Aizen will be captured by Candle JackAnd Gin will have to find and untie him befo
Kubo has been playing too much ''WorldOfWarcraft''.He's turning Yammy into a raid boss.
Aizen has ONE WEAKNESSGetting hit with a telephone pole.
Aizen's bankai...Allows him to kidnap schmucks and dump them in a literal sea of Mind Rape water. So if drowning doesn't kill them, the mind rape will.
The Kido Corps consists of former auctioneers.Kido requires a wordy incantation for full effect. The best way to minimize casting time without sacrificing power? Talk really fast.
Orihime is really a Exorcist and her innocence manifests as the Shun Shun Rikka.Or maybe she's an Omega Level Mutant with a crazy new type of mutation that manifests outside of her because it's power is too great to be kept inside her body... And she will be called the Fairy Queen.
The next arcssomething I'd posted a while back in Recycled Script:
Kubo's hiatuses are......excuses to troll TV Tropes for ideas.
If Bleach starts to drop considerably, with low chances of recovering...Tite Kubo will (partially) turn it into a harem series. There's already a complete setting prepared for that (there are around five or six females that already talked a bit to Ichigo and fit the stereotypes, and two or three males to add variety), he'd only need more perverted jokes.
Shinji Hirako has become self-awareHe's realized that he's just a supporting character in a shounen series, and therefore cannot take down the bad guy. He's figured out that Ichigo is the main character and is just waiting for him to show up and take over. He's just planning on keeping Aizen busy until Ichigo shows up at the last moment.
Yammy was Bruce Banner in his prior life.Can't be too crazy can it?
Kenpachi's Bankai...will be a guitar, with which he'll defeat the Espada with the Power of Rock. While he's playing, allies will randomly be ressurected, things will randomly explode, Tousen's somewhat-better-than-average hearing will backfire horribly, and Kenpachi will end the song by banging down his guitar over the head of Tousen...or Aizen...or Yammy...whoever's left.
L is Ulquiorra.Just hear me out people. I suppose you've noticed the non-linear way that the title is compared to other Ulquiorra is L theories? That's because I think that after Ulquiorra died(again, technically), he was reincarnated as L. Hey, we're not entirely sure of the specific year Bleach takes place in, and reincarnation hasn't been proved to not exist in Bleach. IT COULD HAPPEN.
Aizen's bankai will be the Apple of Eden.Add mind control to his super powerful illusions.
Ichigo will get a Resurrección and it will include a chainsawThanks to Tosen we now know that a Vizard can have a Resurrección form, so what is the next logical power-up for Ichigo? Resurrección! I hereby predict that Ichigo's release command will be Rev Zangetsu and Ichigo will be transformed into something that looks like a Badass Biker with a Leatherface imitation mask. Zangetsu will become a a black, red and gold chainsaw with a twelve-foot blade that constantly drips oil and blood; belching black smoke all over the damn place.
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is an alternate version of BleachAfter numerous jokes about how the main character of said game is Ichigo Kurosaki, This Troper believes that the similarities run deep. Therefore, at the end of the series, Ichigo will discover that he is a squirrel who guards the source of all life.
The entire series is The Plan set up by Kubo......To revive his previous series, Zombie Powder. I predict that every main hero will be defeated, and when it looks like Aizen has won, a garganta opens, revealing the main cast of Zombie Powder!
In the Anime, when Aizen is defeated, and you know he will be eventually, the scene will have ColdPlay's Viva La Vida playing in the background.And if it doesn't, Youtube will promptly be spammed by a billion fanvideos with the song playing over the scene.
Kubo's final, god-level trolling of the Bleach fandom will come in the form of a revelation that he is actually a woman.Seriously. Think about that for a second. The existence of Double Standards alone would have the 'base shitting its collective pants.
Yachiru is a Time BeetleShe sticks to peoples backs, becomes nigh impossible to remove, then tells them to turn left.
Aizen is the Anti-SpiralOr at least one of his incarnations. He doesn't actually care about the King's Key, he just wants to troll as much "absolute despair" as he can. I mean, just look at the recently, where he tricks Hitsugaya into stabbing Hinamori. Unfortunately for the protaganists, nobody has any Spiral Energy, so they are completely helpless before him. Until Kenpachi finally uses his Shikai. Which will be a drill. Which causes him to GO BEYOND AND THE IMPOSSIBLE AND KICK REASON TO THE CURB, breaking all of Aizen's illusions, shortly before skewering him with a galaxy shuriken.
The entire story is actually an anti-drug parable.Aizen represents a drug user, craving and wanting his fix of more and more 'power' and using manipulation and violence to achieve getting funds (i.e. the souls of others) to pay for his habit, ultimately becoming a drug dealer as well. The ultimate high is represented by the Hogyoku, which Aizen possesses and uses believing it to be the the 'key' to solving all of his problems, allowing him to be 'king' of his reality through artificial means. Unfortunately the end result is that he eventually loses his body, becoming little more than a physical freak, and his sanity as a result of overdosing on 'power'. The Arrancar, speciaically the Espada (being artificially constructed by Aizen, of course) represent not just mere death, but Aizen's death, as well as the side-effects of taking drugs, physically, emotionally and socially. The lieutenants who helped him betray Soul Society are his enablers and helpers, who only break free from his charism (because even on drugs Aizen retains some of that charisma up until he starts to physically change) themselves after Aizen pushes them aside in his increasingly obsessive quest for his fix (i.e. kills them). Soul Scoiety, on the other hand, represents people Aizen knows who go through life by evolving without drugs/help, and some are trying to get through to Aizen without success. Ichigo's friends represent people who tried the drug and ultimately resisted taking it. And Ichigo represents Aizen's antithesis: a man who does not need to use drugs to find his own power, but rather resisted the temptation fully and ultimately became the stronger person and conquered his own insecurities - which would have been the impetus into causing Ichigo to use drugs as well - thanks to the help of his friends and family. Hence why Butterflaizen's easy, artificially-provoked evolution is suddenly getting owned by long-haired Ichigo's difficult, but natural, evolution.
Aizen will become Big BrotherThe Soul Reapers will become the party members and the humans are the Proles.
The Amagai and Zanpaktou filler arcs are dreams that Grimmjow is havingThe former he dreamed about after he was briefly knocked out by Ichigo, and the latter after he faded into unconciousness after Nnoitra attacks him. By extension most of the filler arcs we're having now are also his dreams, explaining his long absence in the series.
There will be more attractive female characters to be introduced. Jackie's a good-looking one for those into tomboyish chicks. Riruka's nice-looking for those into early-teen girls. Ikumi's a really hot mom in her early to mid teens. There'll be more later on, mark my words.
Bleach was originally supposed to have been a hentaiAnd would've, too, had it been a seinen. Almost all of the characters are good-looking, nearly everyone is a Fetish Fuel Station Attendant, plenty of them get put in tons of different, alluring outfits, and they have some subtle and not so subtle Ho Yay, Les Yay and Foe Yay. All of the guys have well-sculpted abs and get their cltohes torn apart a lot. The girls are voluptuous with boobs, hips, asses and curves, or are just cute-looking, and tend to wear either revealing or provocative outfits. What's stopping them from getting some more action on the side?
Kubo is about to troll the shippers. Hard.Kubo always hinted that he had big plans for Tatsuki, evidenced by her frustration of the growing gap between her and Ichigo and now with her cryptic statement in the last chapter. It could be that Kubo is setting Tatsuki up to be both a Victorious Childhood Friend and Third-Option Love Interest in the most "did not see that one coming" way possible for an established character. Which, incidentally, will also make it Strangled by the Red String. You know it's something he'd do.
Mayuri Kurotsuchi and Yoruichi Shihoin are somehow relatedAnd why not? Both have fairly dark skin, yellow eyes, dark hair... I'm just thinking, why exactly was Mayuri in prison? Sure, he's batshit crazy, but that doesn't quite explain it. You know how families used to lock up their mentally impaired children in the attic or barn so no one would see them? I was thinking... maybe that's a bit like what's going on. Family didn't want to deal with him, so they locked 'im up. It sounds a little crazy... and that's why it works.
This is just something I like imagine, but...I personally think that Ulquiorra has a hidden panel in his closet. You know, the kind people only know about if they lean on it. Behind it, it would a thick piece of glass that holds a cabinet filled with all sorts of weaponry available that wouldn't make Aizen question it. Attached to the glass is a sign that states "In Case of Zombie Infection, Break Glass." He just seems like the kind of person who would have something to hide, or be paranoid about something that has a low risk of existing. And five bucks says there's a #-digit keypad or seven different locks to open the door just to get inside.
Ichigo is the super ego, Shirosaki is the id, and Ulquiorra is the ego of the reincarnated soul of Lelouch vi-Britania.That explains why Ichigo and Shirosaki are always at cross purposes and Ulquiorra, being the ego separated from the id, lacked purpose and was so obsessed with what he could see with his eyes. When "Ichigo killed Ulquiorra" he was simply reabsorbed into Ichigo and that is why he could feel something for Orihime as he died. Also it explains why Shirosaki was much more amiable after "Ichigo absorbed Ulquiorra." The id was finnaly refused and partially restrained by the ego It also explains why the Getsuga Tensho and Cero Obscuras were so similar. Why Lelouch? Because Johnny Yong Bosch voiced both Ichigo and Lelouch and I think Lelouch resembles Ichigo and Ulquiorra. Furthermore I think Orihime is Shirley reincarnated. They are both kinda silly redheads who fall face first in love with the good looking protagonist
We're going to see more old Soul Society and alot of loose ends are about to be tied up.Mayuri was chewing on the head captain's ass in in a recent chapter (490?) about how he failed to kill that man a thousand years ago, and it's right in the middle of a very important and critical plot point, so why wouldn't Kubo pull the nice trick of interrupting it with a flashback? Turn back the Pendulum did it, and we ALL know he has a bit of a habit of recycling plot points (not that it doesn't make an entertaining story). Personally, I would like to see Mayuri's backstory explained a bit more in depth, and I'm looking forward to seeing the head captain when he was younger, if that will be shown. Muttonchops probably gave him that nice scar on his head, the x-shaped one. You don't get a scar like that unless someone carves it there on purpose.
Grimmjow is Elvis.Because why the hell not? Grimmjow does think of himself as the King, after all.
Hanataro is the actual mastermind behind everything that's happened until now and the one we think is the Vandereich leader is actually just his Dragon.Just like Aizen, he's hiding his real evil self behind a mask of kindness and (in his case) incompetence. He was actually a Quincy when he was alive and his hatred of Shinigami lives on in him. He joined the Gotei 13 to destroy them from the inside, purposely joining the Fourth Division so he could make sure there were no survivors once the Vandereich invade.
Isshin's Zanpakuto name is "Ichigo" and it's release phrase is "Good Morning, Ichigo."Because it's funny.
Jesus is the Soul King.Soul society is about 2000 years old, right? after Jesus died and went to Soul Society he wanted to continue doing good so he founded Soul Society, and fashioned it in Edo period style to screw with people.
Aizen's bankai is just magic hair gel.During his Expository Hairstyle Change, he briefly used his Shikai to cover up the fact that he was releasing his bankai and gave everyone present the illusion that he was slicking back his hair. The reason this doesn't cause his shikai effect to end is because the illusions are his shikai's effect, not the shikai itself, since the shikai is instantaneous (that's why only people who see it being released are affected, and not people who see it in its released form). His bankai's duration is the exact opposite of the shikai: instead of being a high-cost instant effect, it lasts for years and years because it only expends a tiny amount of spirit energy in any given second. This is also supported by the Hogyoku's effects. After Aizen loses his zanpakuto, the Hogyoku imitates his bankai. After he comes out of the chrysalis his hair is longer and even more slicked back (absolutely more; relatively, it's only about the same). The top of his hair fusing into a single skull-like surface is the ultimate expression of the power that started with his bankai. His zanpakuto's name (mirror-flower water-moon) isn't about things that can be seen but not grasped, they're about literal reflections and vanity. His shikai is the illogical extension of letting him force people to view him however he wants them to view him- and this includes the context in which they view him. Thus, his bankai is the illogical powerup of his shikai: what's more powerful than changing how people see you? Changing how you actually look.
Komamura ate the Hito Hito no Mi fruit.Nuff said.
Since Ichigo's bankai clothes show how much reiatsu he has left...Should he use up all of his reiatsu in a fight, he'll suddenly find himself naked in front of his enemy
Uryu's question in Chapter 565 was for Yhwach to install some Tetris in the Wandenreich castleBecause of Tekking.
