BLEACH QUEST XXII

First, let me explain how dice rolls work here on Bleach Quest. I take the best of three, barring any Critical Successes or Critical Failures. If I have not yet asked for dice, and you roll anyway, your roll will count towards the next time I ask for rolls be it for good or ill. After I get three results for a roll, all others are discarded. Normally I take best of 3. If you delete rolls, I will discard that and take the second highest roll.
>Last Time!

Crimson light condenses into a beam, creating an explosion that annihilates everything within its range. However, you were easily able to escape the blast radius. Looking at the crate, you tense as you hear the sound of static behind you a second later.

You eyes widen as you try to react, but the hammerhead’s remaining arm closes around your head and he slams you into the ground. His mouth is in twisted in a bloodthirst scowl.

“You took my arm, you bastard! I’ll kill you!”

Your mask is cracking, and you don’t have much time left in this state it seems. Things look bad as his hand contracts, but it lessens as he turns away in shock, his body forced back as he’s stabbed through by Harribel’s sword-arm.

Your eyes narrow as you spot an opening. Putting all of your strength into your swing, you glare murderously at him.

“No, you won’t.”

With one powerful swing, you cleave off his head. As he begins to fade into spirit particles, Harribel looks down at you with an unreadable expression. She looks like she’s barely better of than you right now, but you can’t tell what she’s thinking.

Your mask continues to crack.

“Looks like you can’t hold that form anymore, Kurosaki Ichigo.”

>Your response?

>>26015708
probably not. looks like I'm resting a bit longer before going home. you and your friends alright?

Dispel mask.

"Yeah, which means I just missed my flight home.

Would it be alright if Chizuru and I stay an extra night?"

>>26015708
"Well fighting a Shinigami Captain, coming here, getting very little rest, and now this kind of does that to ya."
>>
>>26015708
Take the mask off.

"Comes off easy enough. though i lose a bit of juice. You Ok? Can i ask what made you afraid before? Arrancar he said he was, how is that differant than a... Vasto lorde?"
Exposition and education, hooray!
>>
>>26015708

"No...I can't...shit, I don't know when I'll be able to open another door. Did you know this guy? What was he...he felt a bit like a Shinigami...like the reverse of what I partly am. I saw your friends leave with Chizuru, but lost sight of them...do you think they're alright?"

I almost forgot!

You all have completed an Arc of Bleach Quest! You all may decide on a question to ask me and I'll answer it!~

Hope you don't choose something too rules lawyer-y, though or else I'll have to only give you despair!~

You have twenty minutes!~

If we had a fullbring, would it be possible to use Zangetsu while alive, by channeling his soul into an appropriate weapon?

Oh! And one more thing.

"What's with all the spanish? Are we speaking spanish right now? Can you speak spanish?"
>>
>>26015792
>You have twenty minutes!~

I would like to propose this question.

Does Aizen need Urahara's Hogyoku, or does he just need to bask his imcomplete attempt in the rampant energies of the other?

>>26015813

Yeah she is, and if she presses it, I have a pretty good set of justifications to lend her, and to apologize if I've lost her respect...but I'll be damned if she hasn't maintained ours, and she will know it...also about Aizen before we're done.
>>

You mean not outside our body?

>>26015850
What kept Urahara? ... oh god.

... he was fucking Yoruichi, wasn't he?
>>
>>26015879
>Does Aizen need Urahara's Hogyoku, or does he just need to bask his imcomplete attempt in the rampant energies of the other?

Yeah, withdrawing my query for that one. Full bring is fun for down the road.
>>
>>26015884
it's the risk of wearing The Hat
>>
>>26015884
no Aizen killed him and is now using his Zanpakuto to impersonate him and lead our team into Hueco Mundo to retrieve the plot gem he so seeks
>>
>>26015792
I'm gonna ask what everyone's thinking: Does Harribel have a sex drive?
>>
>>26015792
LETS DO THIS

How can we get access to Fullbringer abilities asap?
>>
>>26015792
How do we get the good interlude?
>>
>>26015850
>Another Soul Reaper
>Went into hiding when Momo showed up
>Probably that we're dead

>>
>>26015905
yes. she wants Chizuru
>>
>>26015905

If she does, she has been completely soured on the males of the species.

Which will be good for Chizuru once she awakens...and is in control?
>>
>>26015884
Yep. This way, once we figure out the Quincy trick, and have a way to fight while in our body that isn't completely BLUT.
>>
>leave country for a week
>no internet access
>come back to Bleach Quest
>we actually have the beginning of a harem started
>we are allied with Sharktits
Was I holding us back?
>>
>>26015833
You just triggered me creating wild mass guessing theory: Ichigo never developed his Fullbring he was actually using Quincy powers during that arc. Why you ask? His fullbring seemed to be nowhere near as reality warpy as any of the others. I mean seriously we have my great friend Tsukishima who helped make this theory, Mr. I am The Lord of My Own Pocket Universe, Maybe Orihime, and the one with the knuckles who does the massive probability warping off the top of my head. Also what happens to the souls of hollows killed with a fullbring?
>>
>>26015813
I don't know, she wasn't exactly mad at Aizen when he killed Hammerhead was she?
>>
>>26015941
>>26015905
Didn't Kubo say that her Hollow Hole... is in an odd spot.
>>
She strongly opposes the notion of killing others, especially if done to gain power.
9 to 10 she shanks us as retribution if we say "no", then gives us a lecture and tells us to fuck off and leave.
>>
>>26015905
>>26015905
Right now? No. But if we get her to into arranccar, then it's highly possible.
>>
>>26015708
"Yeah, I'm running on empty again. How's everyone else, nobody got hurt did they?"

"Also, what the hell is an Arrancar and why was it so damn tough?"

>>26015792
Did Orihime and Momo get to safety after we left?
>>
>>26015959
Where her womb would be, not her love flower.

>>26015792
What's up with the Vizards, Soul Society, our group, and Urahara right now?
>>
>>26015813
>she's pissed at us for killing
That's stupid. We did it in defense of her and her friends. It's not like we ate him and stole his power.
>>
>>26015946

But BLUT is so fun, to put it Bluntly.

>>26015959
>Didn't Kubo say that her Hollow Hole... is in an odd spot.

Her Womb if I recall correctly, so between her stomach and the private area. Probably has something to do with the psychology of how she died? In childbirth perhaps, or during a miscarriage? Never knowing if her kid made it or not...and sinking into such a despair over that emptiness.
>>
>>26015991

Rolled 12

>>26016001
You mean to put it Blutly, right?
>>
>>26016010
It seems my pun is less than stellar in the eyes of the dice.
>>
>>26016010

Something like that. Man, I hope when we do wind up dealing with the Vanderreich that they don't throw us into an arena for Blut sport.
>>
>>26015993
>ask 4 things instead of 1 under the guise of it being 1
Ya, no way Cosgrove would let that fly. Even if I really REALLY want to know.
>>
>>26016027
All I know, is that it's a bloody pain to come up with puns related to Blut..
>>
>>26016001
>>26015993

Aight. That makes sense.

Also, I'm not crazy about the Harem. Heck, I'm not crazy about having two girlfriends at that.

So I say pass Harribel to Chizuru. Maybe she can Plot Rock her into an Arrancar or something.
>>
>>26016050

Better to ask, but still in the same slighty unfair to Cosgrove's generous spirit: How are all of our allies doing right now?
>>
>>26015792
I don't want anything too informative on current events, just, what the fuck was urahara thinking when he gave Honsho the plot gem? What was his plan there?
>>
>>26016080
This sounds like a good question.
>>
>>26016066
>plot rock her into an arrancar
I get the feeling this will happen very soon.
>>
>>26016080
I've got a feeling we'll know about that in tonights interlude (man I wish there where more of those) for better or worse. Failing that, maybe we'll get to see how Rukia's doing?
>>
>>26016066
I thought Chizuru with a pile of girls in Mexico was already part of our plan as players.

>>26016082
Man, I don't think he was, maybe Aizen or one of the cronies was falling upon the Shoten, and he needed to eject it into unreasonableness, so he hit the panic button to let it launch at what may, as long as it wasn't Aizen.

It's our fault for Mystery Boxing Chizuru...but look where it has landed us so delightfully.
>>
>>26016066
>not wanting glorious hax reality-wrecking harem
Anon, you need to try harder...
>>
>>26016066
Why, if you want to know? Because I think that Harems are for oil sheik villains in bad action flicks. I don't think they're a 'romance' that a hero should have.

... it just irks me in terrible ways and I find it being a bad cop out with a writer's inability to pick one girl and stick with them and just go: Wait. This is so much better!

It's not. It really isn't.

No

>>26016224

Hey, our Ichigo has gotten enough guilt off of his chest early enough to be a lover, not a fighter.

Frankly, though it is totally in character for Orihime to go alone with this, I can't help but feel the relationship as it stands will explode hilariously for us, disastrously for Ichigo.

Only to learn most of the folks we care about were carted off to Soul Society or something.
>>
Guys; I have a feeling the number we ask for will affect how much will be shared with us.
Momo and Urahara are key here.
Momo may very well become depressed and suicidal because this is her fault, and Urahara was "delayed".

>>26016307
It is, true. I'm just saying that having a harem is... I don't know. I don't like it. I've never liked. And it kills fanfiction for me when someone does a rant about how they're doing better then the creator becasue they're giving the Main Character because they're giving Ichigo/Shirou/Naruto/Etc the Harem they Deserve.

Harem comedy is funny, but I always think in the end that someone wins in the end.
>>
>>26016430
Unfortunately yes.

I'm kind of starting to feel fatigued here, since this is now three threads in a row with really high stakes and very powerful opponents.

>>26016330
Momo, Urahara, and Shinji. At least Momo and Urahara.

We deserve a light hearted genre switch dream episode...

But I'm addicted to plot advancement.

Because while I love me some Rukia, it's just not going to work out in this quest.

>>26016451

We're not going to get a full on Harem, and polys are rare, they aren't unheard of in terms of dating relationships...though they require a significant amount of maturity...which in this instance the three involved have a problematically variable amount of. Hilarity will ensue, or they'll all make it work and be happy.
>>
>>26016475
>>26016452
A thread or two where we flip rolls (maybe Rukia for Soul Society or Ishida for Earth) for a little would be nice. Doubt it'll happen though.
In any case, we COULD use a little lighthearted fun...
>>
>>26016478
I think Two works, but don't let one guy complaining about harems stuop other people's fun.
>>
>>26016452
It sorta feels like an ever accelerating avalanche.
>>26016451
Eh, harems I'm fine with a harem, the shenanigans can always get interesting. My main question is always can the character make it work. This one I think we can.
>>
>>26016478
we shall see. I personally want to see Ichigo and Chizuru as Rance analogues with massive battle harems
>>
>>26016478
We limit OUR harem to two. Honsho's is about to become 4.
>>
>>26016503
Depends a lot on culture. There are cultures with harems or poly relationships as a common and accepted practice.
>>
>>26016514
I'd like for a breather episode where we play as someone else while Ichigo is away.
>>
>>26016524
So do I. Although I would be fine with simply adding in Rukia and capping it there.

Get home, learn while there was a damaging and injurous fight, everyone is mostly alive and Aizen was outed publicly in our absence. Dad & Urahara have to answer some questions for the Captain Commander, and some shinigami have been sent to debrief us and watch out for us. The episode is structured around us choosing whose answer besides Ichigo's we get to hear for each debrief question?

This would be fantastic

Building her a harem, eh? Normally I'd support it, because it fits the ridiculous tone of her character somewhat.

But right now she's... not that kind of character, if that makes sense. Perhaps later.

Isn't he always though? I can't think of a time where he wouldn't be killed by even one character letting their full power loose even slightly in his direction.

~Urahara Kisuke!

Currently, he’s doing some finishes touches on two separate portals! He’s been attacked by ninjas, you know? Well, he’s not happy as he’s lost something important and his enemies have made a move!

~Inoue Orihime!

Someone wanted to know about her panties? They’re orange today, but she’s got one for each day of the week! A Technicolor panty set!~

Currently, she’s not in a good mood. Mainly because the two closest people in her life now are gone! She’s currently training to do something about that though, such a spirited girl!~

~Hinamori Momo…

Well… she shouldn’t have given Hitsugaya that chance.... Really, really, really shouldn’t have!~

However, she’s still alive, as she currently holds knowledge important to various people!~

Best not let her stay put too long, lest someone be allowed to get a hold of her!~

Last guy only had a head up, after all!~

Alrighty, working on the next part!~

Hope you all feel better informed!~

But, /please/, feel free to despair!

>>26016570
>Honsho also into bestiality
>>
>>26016451
It's okay for comedy series, but it really doesn't work well in serious situations.

The only exception I can think of is Rin's harem (Rin/Shirou/Saber), but that's rather unusual in several ways. Besides that, it's just absurd...excepting situations like Ichigo's in this, where the girls in the situation are somewhat...off. Then it's disturbing in a rather different way, but also more plausible.

>>26016610

Chizuru deserves her sweaty pile of just dessert in the desert, especially after her heroic explosion earlier.

Well, the joke is that we do are best to make Keigo not a wimp through his terrible interactions and before you know it... *shrug* Who knows. I'm sure there's something that could happen to him to make him have powers.

My personal choice? He does something grand and heroic and dies and becomes an einherjar. Of course, that wouldn't happen, but getting other afterlifes involved is enough of a cliche in bleach fanficiton.
>>
>>26016624
2nd division attacked Kisuke and Momo got captured...great.

We need to hurry home...and we might as well take some Hollow/Arrancar reinforcements. Kisuke's cover has been blown anyway.
>>
>>26016673
>>26016675
So Hitsu send up a signal flair and now they're all coming... Alternatively he's escaped.
>>
>>26016624
>Momo got taken somewhere
>Apparently because she gave Hitsugaya a "chance"

Oh you poor, stupid Snowboy. If she dies its going to be a fucking bloodbath, and you've only got yourself to blame.
>>
>>26016675
What, no.

That's definitely the hougyoku. It just means that it's not in Chizuru on purpose.

>>26016673
It's like Byakuya, only we more or less one round 1.
>>
>>26016669
>As if learning what a shithead Aizen really is wasn't bad enough, now she has to learn her oldest friend isn't much better?
I don't think Hitsugaya would willingly put Momo into danger.

Which means he's been duped.
>>
>>26016690
Or is just on the run.

Are you really implying that Bleach characters can die off panel?
>>
>>26016709
I think Cos was implying they took Yorouichi. I mean he did mention ninjas, and we all know what that means.
>>
>>26016714

He has been duped and we're going to challenge Soul Society to save them...

Or do we approach them in a way that isn't just "Show up and beat people up until Aizen unnecessarily makes his grab for the Hogyoku and gloats at the collected Gotei 13 about how he murdered the Central 46 and they were just pawns in his plan.

Aizen is many things...he is a good chess master...he just loves to monologue...and he's been keeping that pent up for the last 100 years.
>>
>>26016748
I know how he feels.
>>
Despite the critical slot machine, this quest is doing a great job of showing how outclassed we really are. We can win fights, barely, but we just don't have the manpower to hold our ground.
>>
>>26016743

No, Urahara lost the Hogyoku, he will either be happy or pissed when we show up and it is in Honsho.
>>
>>26016772
Shouldn't Orihime have told him?
>>
>>26016748
Aizen is brilliant no denying it but his downfall is that he has to let others know that by gloating when he thinks he is in control.
>>
Oh god. Shiro has made a huge mistake. He has given Orihime desperation and from that flows intent to kill. Really the only reason that Tsubaki hardly ever got used was because Orihime was not capable of putting the intent behind it in order to get it to a decent power.
>>
>>26016748
I think that we can successfully fuck over his Hueco Mundo plans right now and stop him from doing that then. If all goes well he could be defeated before he has a chance to leave the SS. Also that means we save Gin.
>>
>>26016772
It could also have meant Yoru, since I know that Soi-Fon would love to have her chained to a bed.
>>
>>26016624
So we don't have time to start arrancarizing the hollow squad that is now hosting us. I am despair.

On a side note, I take it we didn't get any xp from dealing epithelial cracked mask?

But guys
What about Senna? And Rukia?
Weren't we going to try for them, too?
>>
>>26016801
We need to leave as soon as possible, it sounds like.

Ideally I'd like Chizuru to wake up first, but that might not happen.

...Also, have we been shirtless the whole fight, since we used our shirt to make a pillow for Chizuru?
>>
>>26016785
She would not know it is related to him at this point. However, If she decided to go and tell him the story, he might piece together that it's the hogyoku.
>>
>>26016801
>we don't have time to start arrancarizing the Hollow squad
We could easily do 1. Also we don't know any of this IC.
>>
>>26016797

Or be chained to a bed. Soi-Fon is still totally the bottom of the relationship. Their canon SS fight was just her trying to justify a century of betrayal and anger...only to fall right back into old patterns when she realized she was still trailing behind her goddess.
>>
>>26016848

But he still doesn't know where Honsho is, and by that, he doesn't know where Hogyoku is.
>>
>>26016830
Rukia... isn't the kind of person I can imagine wanting to be part of a harem.

Unless she has her own damn harem, and we're a part of hers as she is ours.

Orihime could probably muster her own as well.
>>
>>26016830
If it makes sense and Hime and Momo want it, maybe.

Stop getting hung up on this shit. We don't even know if we'll see either one of them and how much they'll have changed.

>>26016809
Same. I kind of wanted to see them go through the stages of grief while my brain plays dramatic music where they come to the conclusion to check for us in Ghost Mexico because there HAS to be a way.
>>
Watch. By the time we get back, Orihime will be working on earning Chessmaster status to beat Aizen and save Ichigo/Momo. She'll also be able to reject everything in front of her via a weaponized version of Santen Kisshun.
>>
>>26016830
I was thinking more friends with benefits for Rukia, probably more between her and Orihime than the rest of the trio. I still haven't bothered looking Senna up (I believe it was said that she's from one of the movies? Not something I followed).
>>
>>26016874
Like I said, the only common factor between Ichigo's friends is an inhuman amount of stubbornness and loyalty.
>>
>>26016830
Senna. Rukia is kind of up in the air, but we have to get Senna and force her into existence.
>>
>>26016830
You have no idea how difficult maintaining a consenting, all parties informed, polyamorous relationship. I've topped at 5 before it collapsed after 6 months.
>>
>>26016849

Hogyoku didn't appear to be sleeping when it went into and empowered Chizuru. We may be looking at an awake Orb of distortion that will reveal it's powers through her subconscious and conscious desires.

If she is awake when we catch up to the Tres Beastias...they might already be maskless from basking in her presence/pent up sexual aggression...

...unless unleashing enough energy to vaporize part of a desert was also climactic for her, and she's good right now.

Well, yeah. He just might figure out that she had it. Not where she is. Never said he would know our location. just that he might figure out chizuru has it, being a smart guy and all.

Best I've done is two (current relationship) It's tough, but we've made it work for just over a year now.

Indeed. Still would be fun watching their hearts sink a bit. I want those feels.

I kind of hope Chizuru ends up with Harribel and Co. as her harem (with the later addition of Soi-Fon). But I'm not she we'll have time to experiment with her powers here.

Dunno. Cosgrove seemed to imply that it is, saying that the thing was embedded in her chest slightly higher than aizen. Also, very little has diverged from canon without our (in)direct intervention. Just guessing though.
>>
>>26016942

It is 3/4 of the Hogyoku Aizen had to become Butterflaizen.

Aizen combined Urahara's Hogyoku with the partial one (of similar design, but differing execution) he had made with his early subordinates from portions of the spirit energies of young peasants.

Obviously, the one Urahara made with a budget and a research department was better than the ethically questionable slap job (but more inherently sinister) version Aizen's cronies crapped out before young Gin killed one and took his place.
>>
>>26016984
Don't forget that Aizen outright said that Urahara is a better scientist than he is.
>>
I'm just imagining Aizen kidnapping Chizuru... and getting fed up with her non stop molestation of the female arrancar. She'd be like Orihime except incessantly bitchy.
>>
>>26016984
And if my memory is correct, one of the young peasants Aizen's then secondary stooge harvested/violated was a young Matsumoto.

Also anyone think that the Captcha is getting harder to read? Like by a significant margin? [/spoilers]
>>
>>26017034
Not to mention that Aizen woke up female, as did Gin and the rest of the Espada.

Only Aizen knows about his own condition, of course, thanks to Kyoka.

>It's weird and confusing.
Fun though. It can be difficult to maintain the emotional connection to all partners involved, especially if some folks are in high stress positions. The sex can be amazing and incredibly silly.

You give a shaky nod of your head as it fully crumbles away as you struggle to your feet. “I guess not... it's strange, usually I can maintain control... Are you hurt?"

Harribel looks surprised, but you stare at where the hammerhead-like hollow, if it could still be called that, was. “What was that thing?”

Harribel gives a glance to where you look before shaking her head. “Something I thought a rumor. For Menos Grande hollows, barring the Vasto Lorde, regression is always a constant fear. However, it is said that there is a way to restore some humanity and reason to a hollow to stop the regression… at a terrible price.”

She shakes her head before looking back at you, intently.

“Kurosaki Ichigo, why did you not leave? Why did you fight?”

Her eyes stare into yours, searching for an answer.

You don’t break eye contact. Not for a second. There’s no doubt in your words either.

"I fought because you had shown me kindness...and I'm not the type of man to let such debts go unnoticed. It is my way to protect, and anyone willing to keep me and mine safe are those I am willing to fight for...besides...I think I know who would have made this guy a thing...though it didn't seem like he got reason back at all."

You shake your head as you get up, bandages wrapping around Zangetsu, and put it back on your back, its strap to hold it snugly across your chest. You stretch your arm, continuing.

"He came here consumed with murder...and he was gloating about it when he did get here...no reason...no justice...just to have power over another...not even to test his own strength...I can't stand guys like that"

You look back at her over your shoulder. “I’d be glad to call someone like you a comrade anytime.”

Harribel stares at you incredulously. “A shinigami with a hollow’s mask wanting to be comrades with a Vasto Lorde…”

She lets out a husky laugh. “I’d never believe it otherwise.”

She shakes her head. “Kurosaki Ichigo, how things work for hollows is different, especially since you can be considered comparable in strength to me. Are you sure you want to call me your comrade?”

Harribel is staring at you with a strong intensity, her eyes seemingly dull and restrained before are now burning with the desire to know.

That... makes sense. Hurm. She's different, but all Hollows accept strength and follow it. Being tied for power might cause friction and rivalries. This is pretty vague. If we press her to find out more, she might grow agitated and retract it. If we accept... we might not like what happens next.

What if he's turned into canon Hichigo's power hungry bastard? I'd be mighty disappointed.
In any case, we should see if they're ok and thank them for the help when we get a chance.
>>
>>26017665
We're Vasto Lorde level at full strength: We we were fighting at max, but we also exhausted all of the reiryoku we'd recovered.

When we get Bankai, we'll probably be pushing the level of post Dangai-training Ichigo (without FGT), or perhaps non-Hogyoku Aizen. At least Ulquiorra.
>>
>>26017523
This does seem best.
>>
>>26017734
Hopefully he hasn't, because he's still a zanpaktou spirit.

Though he might not like how much we held back with Hitsugaya, I'm pretty sure killing the fuck out of Hammerhead might have pleased him.
>>
>>26017738
We were at 1/3 full strength. The only question is how much of Harribel's max power is she at?
>>
>>26017769

So, when we tried to bleed off Chizuru's Hogyoku...we bit off more than we could chew...and at 1/3 our power we school an Arrancar that could take down a Vastrolorde, creatures supposed to exceed a basic Shinigami Captain in power...

Oh dear...
>>
>>26017738
Unlikely. Vasto Lordes are said to outclass the "average" captain at the one-on-one level. We just barely survived Hitsugaya when he wasn't going all out, and that took a lot of help.

You let out a snort.

"Hey, I'm pretty sure I'm on Soul Society's shit list already.”

You lift up you hand and raise a finger as you reach each point.

“Several of my friends are wanted for desertion and accused falsely of seeking a hollowfication.

“I'm plotting to stop the guy who‘s behind it, a bastard named Aizen Souske.

“Who has the soul society tricked, so I have to prove their innocence.

“Without anyone of my comrades getting killed or sacrificing themselves.

“…and I'm part Quincy, who the Soul Society...at least from the perspective of the universe still existing, justly exterminated."

You show her open hand briefly before shrugging. “I don’t give a damn what other people think. I’d gladly call you my comrade easily, but I’d even call you my friend. And I’d defend you from anyone who tries anything.”

Harribel listens to your words. “You have conviction in your words, Kurosaki Ichigo. Rest and regain your strength, then. You will need it.”

You stare at her, confused. “…For what?”

Harribel raises an eyebrow at you. “Why for our fight. Hollows determine ranking based upon strength and you showed strength that was on par with mine. You also spoke of defending me, as if a subordinate. Is it not obvious that we will then fight?”

Her green eyes glitter energetically, hungrily. “You will fight for the right to lead and protect me and I will fight for the right to lead and defend you. So long as we are comrades, there can be no other way.”

You stare at her, in shock, and she nods, accepting your baffled silence as acceptance. “The moment you feel your strength return to full, tell me and we shall have our duel.”

She turns around and vanishes in the direction her comrades ran off in.

I'm not worried about fighting Halibel.
I'm worried because Aizen was likely watching that fight we just had. I'm worried because shit is clearly going down back home and we don't really have time to have a friendly match with HalleBerry. I'm worried because a fight between us might attract the attention of some stronger hollows (notably Baragan or Grimmjow). Or that Aizen might decide to throw some more enemies at us while we're weakened to see what will happen.

There's just too much stuff that could go wrong during or after the fight.

Depends on how quickly we can subdue Harribel, on the other hand, if we lose this fight our hollow stops growing in power, so we might want to make sure the pat we're actually at our best for this.

While we MIGHT be stronger then a non-starving Tier Hallibel right now we certainly aren't stronger then as she is as an arrancar.

Bleach Quest is a series starring a compulsive character who is headstrong and loyal who has mysterious and powerful abilities. Gameplay consists of leading and training your team to more effectively battle; however most players tend to focus on diplomacy/ dialog options and relationship building than fighting. The plot consists of the main character and his team gunning after a character they have only ever heard about who is a powerful and well respected member of the organization he has defected from. The organization are a peace keeping force and initially don't believe the main character however.

>Follow, check on chizuru

"wu..what? Wait...WAIT UP! Argh,"

You pull at your hair, giving a grunt of frustration as you open up your sixth sense. You grumble as you lock onto her spiritual pressure.

"This is what the universe does to people who die a virgin and come back, isn't it..."

You follow after her, not hard to keep track of her spiritual energy as you come across her and her subordinates, who seemed to have been heading back this way. Harribel seems to be explaining the situation to them, as Sung-sun nods her head in understanding. Appaci and Mila Rose seem to be staring at you in incredulity.

However, you don’t care about that. Chizuru is on Appaci’s back so you approach and pick her up, resting a hand on her forehead. Its still warm and feverish. You let out a mid curse before shaking your head. You look at Harribel. “I’m heading back. I have to look after her.”

Harribel gives you a curt nod and you shunpo back, moving as fast as you can without disturbing Chizuru. When you return, you lay her back down on her improvised pillow and let out a sigh.

Still no improvement, but she’s not worsening. However, she’s also not going berserk like before. And now you have this fight coming up…

>what do you do?
>>
>>26018395
I think (could be wrong) that she would understand us having to postpone the fight to rescue one of our subordinates. Especially if that rescue involved picking a war with the entirety of the shinigami organization.
>>
As much as I'd like to see the fight with Harribel, we don't have the time.
Maybe we can convince her that we need to postpone the fight, because seriously, Chizuru is in critical need of medical help and we can't get it here, and the longer we stay, the more dangerous for her.

Well, actually thinking about it more, if we lose, our subordinates technically become her subordinates, and she respects us enough that she might decide to assist us once she learns about SS kidnapping them. And a vasto lorde that early would cause SS to shit themselves.

Over the top, off color comedy without a healthy balance of seriousness, I don't have anything against it, per say, it just doesn't suit me.

>>26018428
This is coming from a harribelfag- as much as I like her, I can see the support on both sides, and unike other characters, like Senna, we seem pretty divided o n this, even though at the moment she has litterally no sex drive, and she's struck me as aggrophobic, not a man-hating lesbian.

"Yeah I suppose that's my fault for forgetting Hollow mentality, but I think there's a factor I neglected to explain?

Namely I still have a dad, sisters, friends, girlfriend...s, all in the World of the Living.

Which is somewhere that you're not able to go?

And due to that evil shinigami I mentioned earlier, the soul society seems to have targeted them, and I need to put a stop to that..

So I really cannot consent to any decision that would result in me staying here on a permanent basis."

We can just tell her we have to delay the fight, as we are on the clock right now and don't know what's going on...but first Jinzen, and I want to stress that we should ask Zangetsu if he is capable of getting us in contact with Hinamori, and if he is, TELL EITHER OF HIM TO DO SO.

No. We fight Haribel. With this atmosphere, we should recover quickly, especially if we draw in energy as a quincy and consume it with our hollow powers...

No. Fucking NO. She'd lose all respect for us, which might just mean killing us outright.

If we win, we have authority over her subordinates through her. Have one of them tear a hole back to our reality.

I'm just saying the "But I'll miss seeing my family/friends/lovers" bit is going to sound like the cheapest, whiniest excuse and if we're going to postpone it needs to be with a valid reason. Like completing an oath of protection already given to one of our subordinates. If we lose we would want the responsibility of saving Momo to pass to Harribel after all. Right?
>>
>>26018777
>>26018765

Indeed.

Having a goddamn Vasto Lorde as an ally will help us a LOT. I mean, we ARE NOT cool with SS AT ALL. We need allies, poowerful ones or we'll need to hide in Hueco Mundo 24/7.

captains can lower their spirit energy so people don't blow up-she can too if we teach her. and if Soul Society shows up, we hide her in the clubhose. also we can ask Kisuke about gigai for hollows
>>
>>26018774
It's not the only option, but it is the best. We can potentially get her to help fight SS with us, after all we have subordinates. And with us as her subordinate, they also become her subordinates.

>>26018799
Or reveal Aizen for the jackass he is, so that even all his precious illusions can't save him.

>>26018799
At this rate, we'll end up as the one ruling Las Noches. Aizen'll be a little upset when we steal his throne, but that's okay.

>we need to go deeper

You sit yourself in the meditative pose, Zangetsu across your lap, and enter Jinzen.

When you arrive in your inner world, things seem like they’re covered in static, a good number of the buildings cracked or broken. Old Man Zangetsu is there, but he seems like he’s in deep discomfort.

“Ichigo.”

He gives you a pained nod and winces as he grabs at his abdomen. Nearby, several buildings erupt in cracks.

“Now is not the best time to be here. You should rest. Recover.”

He takes a deep breath and several buildings seem to start repairing themselves before we winces, returning them to their ruined state. He looks at you with one eye open.

“Just focus on your rest and recover Ichigo. I’ll sort things out. Until you feel fully recovered though, do not use your hollow powers.”

The inner world seems to fill with static. “Just trust in me, Ichigo. Everything will be fine.”

The static grows and you find yourself back in the cave, staring down at Zangetsu.

>Time to decide

>>26018712
I just remembered this, but to me, I was thinking how similar he was to uryu during that ark.
In most other arcs, he's pretty straightforward, to the point of 'If we chop at it's bpttom enough, we could get to the head" mentality of going at a gillian.
But in the fullbring arc, he deliberately hides his powers to beat people more effectively, that should by all reasons be allies.
Also he acted a lot like uryu during that ark, until he got his "shinigami powers" back.
>>
>>26018845
Decide what?

Also if we can't mask up we are totally fucked in this fight.
>>
>>26018845
It's not like we have that many options, we rest and try to take care of Chizuru, maybe see if the hollows have anything that might help.
>>
>>26018845
rest until we are ready. No real choice.
>>
>>26018822
...So we could say "by transitive property, the safety of all my comrades in the world of the living are now your responsibility, so what are you going to do about it?"

>>26018821
Nah man, pretty sure she needs to be an Arrancar before she can safely be in the World of the Living.

...Which would a: mean she is quite decisively stronger than us and b: can leave Hueco Mundo
>>
>>26018845
>Time to decide.

Rest. We need to mask up to Garganta back anyway, and we can't do that if our Hollow side is unstable.

Unfortunately, we might have to go through with the duel.
>>
>>26018845
Go and rest. Right now. Maximum recovery mode activate.
>>
>>26018845
Uhhhh, what?

Better just rest.
>>
>>26018845
Sounds like Hichigo is on a god damn rampage and Ojii-san is trying to absorb him with his quincy powers. I uh.. think this is fine to just leave as is? Let's take a nap next to Chizuru
>>
>>26018845

Rest, and fight. We might get our ass whupped, but who's to say we can't challenge her again later?
>>
>>26018845
Rest up then. We need to dominate a LadyShark.
>>
>>26018845
Rest like a madman. Rest like we've never rested before.
>>
>>26018845
>Time to decide
On what skills to unlock next? Goodie.
Shall we finish off the Shunpo skill then?
>>
>>26016451
Harems are situational. In 'modern' settings harem's are a pretty awful thing to try to work because they're so far from the norm it's unbelievable.

In a setting (loosely) based off periods of actual history like firebender quest a bit of background research isn't just 'framing' the world, it's also a shortcut to the average characters state of mind. Harem's may be more of the norm, an uninvolved/unmarried woman over a certain age may get desperate etc.
>>
>>26018845
Rest fully, and when Harribel comes back, ask for a rain-check on the fight.
We have an obligation to protect and save Chizuru, and the longer we stay here, the worse she'll get.
Harribel should respect us needing to save our own subordinate first.

And since Gargantua is a Hollow power, and we were told to not use Hollow powers again till we're fully rested, we need full rest.
>>
Put the mask back on.

We need to go full hollow right now!

Why? Because this train has had too many breaks!
>>
>>26018845
Rest and recover as much as possible. We need to be able to access our hollow powers without self destructing not only for the coming match but also to go home.
>>
>>26018845

Rest, spend XP on Shunpo. Stay close to Chizuru. Passively spirit sense for Mom whenever we wake.
>>
>>26018934
No.
>>
>>26018890
Well, not like that, 'cause that's rude. But yeah. With her attitude, it might not be that hard. We just have to establish before we fight that we have people that depend on us like Halibel's girls depend on her.
>>
>>26018845
>Rest

I think the problem here isn't the Hougyoku...

I think the problem is that we leveled up our Hollow abilities by a lot.

I mean High Speed Regeneration, Cero, and leveling it to Rank 3?

We've dumped by far the most exp into that area, so it makes sense that Zangetsu would get a bit rowdy.

We should probably invest in Quincy to level the playing field.
>>
>>26018845

...Wait, I just realized he said not to use our Hollow powers....however...he said nothing about our OTHER powers. I think he more or less inadvertently gave us the go ahead to go nuts with our Quincy powers.
>>
>>26018934
If the train iphas too many breaks, why are you trying to kill the engine?
>>
I wonder if there is a way to get Harribel to take us to menos forrest.

Look, I love Ashido. He's boss.

Your first one is a good point. The second one however has a couple of flaws: first of all Chad's at least transmutes his arms quite a bit, Ichigo's on the other hand projects reishi weapons from a symbol he holds in high esteem held on a cord (cough cough Quincy cross cough). A good deal of the vandereich have been shown making non-bow weapons out of reishi. Sure theirs have solidity but then again so did Ishida's bow when he had the glove on. Then we get into the fact that if you view them from the right side Ichigo is throwing giant swastikas (which are themselves perfectly in keeping with Quuncy thematics). I admit that this theory probably has a few holes in it but it is close enough that it could get Kubo'd at a moment's notice. My point is less complexity and more far less noticeable warping of reality.

So I think we should either buy the Quincy utility ability for the 1500 or dump it all to get closer to leveling Quincy overall up.

Also could we train our Quincy Reshi gathering abilities since we're in Hueco Mundo? Just try sucking in the ambient spirit particles to help us heal faster perhaps? Didn't Ishida level up just by stepping foot into soul society after all?

Lets just buy the Quincy utility skill. If its that one that lets Ishida control his body with his spirit energy I bet we could extend and improve upon that. Maybe link up our zanpakto to it. Swing Zangetsu around by invisible spirit wires.

We should probably put some points into Quincy after we finish Shunpo. And just to clarify, our Zanpakuto can only gain experience while training with Zangetsu while in Jizen, right?

I was hoping out Bankai might be different due to our focus (and Ichigos is lame), but oh well.

>>26019513
Almost all of Shonen hates spellcasters. They're not reckless enough, and they actually have to use time, effort, and intellect to level up. The only exceptions are mage-centric universes.

I got no issues with it.

>>26019535
Don't we need a teacher for that though?
>>
>>26019535
Nah, I'm thinking Quincy to balance out Hollow; if we rank up Hollow too much then Hichigo is going to fight us for control again, and we won't have Quincy or Shinigami powers ranked up to beat him.

And besides, I like the idea of Hinamori taking us aside for private kido lessons.
>>
>>26019556
What we do when doingthe 3 day Bankai training is to use spirit threads to grasp all the swords at once and declare that "ALL SWORDS LEAD TO ZANGETSU"
>>
>>26019535
Depends on the situation. Besides, we won't automatically learn spells, I think.
>>
>>26019535
Sounds good. I just don't want to grab it right before our duel with a Vasto Lorde.

We would never get anything done.

Yeah, we'll most likely unlock spells we can dump xp into when we put in the first rank.

>>26019579
...I was just thinking we'd grab Zangetsu by the chest and say "found you", then he'd slap us for being a smartass.
>>
>>26019594

No, she'd probably get all stern and take charge, like when we first met...and we'd be snarky when she asks us if we have any questions and then get hit in the face with chalk when we ask her for a quickie before the exam.

...we'll still probably get that quickie.
>>
I agree, we should put some XP into Kido, but only once we have an opportunity to actually learn some actual incantations.
>>
>>26019594
We'd learn Hadō #1: Thrust

We'd learn it so hard
>>
>>26019613

THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER!

"You must find me, Ichigo, find the true Zangetsu and -WAHT"

Lifting Zangetsu over our head flailing him around by his foot.

"So, does another one of you show up or do I just have to start beating you against a rock?"

Tried to read the manga, stopped when I realized how episodic it was. Not surprised to hear that hot-blooded is the only road to usefulness.
>>
>>26019535

No fuck way. At least not yet. We need to level up our Quincy shit to keep Hichigo in check, use Blut more effectively, and probably learn how to suck the oomph out of peoples attacks by absorbing the spirit particles.

After that we can give Kido a pity level.

You spend the next two days resting, intermittently checking on Chizuru. Harribel seems to be avoiding you, though that seems more because she’s resting herself.

After two days you find yourself feeling like you’re back in action. Chizuru seems still feverish, but it’s strange. Its more like she’s in stasis. She hasn’t suffered from not eating or drinking, all she does is sleep, breathing lightly, with her body feverishly hot.

You feel out for Harribel, but it seems like she’s also fully healed. You enter Jinzen, finding yourself in your inner world. The old man Zangetsu is standing there, looking at you. It might just be you, but it seems like he’s a little younger. Not much though.

You look around, the static gone. The buildings are back and fully repaired. “Ichigo.”

You give the old man a nod. “Are you ready for your battle?”

You give him a conflicted look. “Old Man Zangetsu… I don’t know. I don’t want to turn them down, but… I have to get back to my friends and loved ones!”

Your Zanpakuto spirit lets out a sigh. “I doubt it is that easy. You have called them your friend, Ichigo, and put me into a very uncomfortable situation. If you leave now without settling things, would you not be abandoning them?”

He closes his eyes with a pained look. “My promise to you has come back to haunt me, it seems. My apologies.”

When he looks again at you, it is with regret. “I can tell you no more than your hollow abilities should be under control now. However, you need not fear loss so long as your rely on me.”

You give him a hesitant nod as he gives what looks like a dismissive gesture before looking scornfully at his own arm as things fade to black. For a second you think you can hear your Hollow’s voice.

“Soon.”

And then you’re back in the cave, Chizuru unconscious next to you.

Kido is for when we have earthly downtime after Aizen outs himself to the Soul Society as the big bad and flees to Mexico.

He has to drop the bomb soon, he has to unveil himself, his ego can't let him keep this up for much longer.
>>
>>26019661
It's 500 xp. That's not much.

Besides, if we max it out, we can Kurohitsugi Aizen. The irony would be worth it, as would all of the wounds.

When we only get 1500 at a time and we're only 1100 away from leveling up something else it kinda is. It'd be the choice of either new ability or level 1 of kido without any known spells to cast.
>>
>>26019712
>we can Kurohitsugi Aizen

All exp is going to Kido now just to do this.

I don't get the WE NEED TO LEVEL QUINCY TO BALANCE HOLLOW stuff people keep spouting, levelling Shinigami stuff would do the job just as well.

>>26019739
Wow, it's like you're trying to become the horse.
>>
>>26019748
I agree on this occasion. I'm just saying that it might be worth it later: We're going to be killing shit a lot stronger than cracked-masked hollow, and the payout is going to be higher.

>>26019683
We have to find Harribel and tell her we're ready.
Otherwise we will be betraying her trust.

Oh fuck, he's pissed again... Someone reset the clock.

>Ask her if she'll let us keep a promise and if we lose, to let us return to the world of the living so we can drop our friend off.

Also: anyone else alarmed at how god-tier we're getting and the pace of things? It feels like we're moving at breakneck speed and the series is coming to a head.
I don't want it to end...
>>
>>26019779
He said the hollow powers were under control.
>>
>>26019785

See, I disagree that the payout is higher.

Quincy's have spell like powers as well. Plus their powerset is basically tailored to beating down beings made of spirit particles. Which all shinigami and hollows are.

Leveling up Quincy is like leveling shinigami, kido, and shunpo all at once PLUS bonus powers.
>>
>>26019683
Go find Harribel.
"I realize that I have to fight you now. But Chizuru needs to be seen by a specialist, in the living world. So let's make this quick, with everything we've got."
>>
>>26019762

Or we could just go full hollow and tug-o-war for control of the power.
>>
>yfw we learn Resurrección before Bankai
>>
>>26019712
Oh wow. Remember Yamamoto's Kido 96? Bigass blade of flame that cost him an arm to use? Now imagine Ichigo doing that, then donning his mask and growing the goddamned arm back.
>>
>>26019794
I support this wholeheartedly, as long as you mean Magica Mundus arc Negi.

Perpetual lightning form, not to mention becoming a magic-devouring pseudo-immortal demon, is pretty damn badass.

I've been watching Cosgrove hand you exp and you guys constantly put most of it into Hollow stuff for a while now. It's the platonic ideal of giving someone rope to hang themselves with.
>>
>>26019739

Seconding hollow bro.

I think we should just throw shinigami powers the bird and level up Quincy and hollow.

We don't NEED shunpo.
We don't really NEED bankai
Our Shikai is kind of gay.
Kido doesn't do anything that Quincy does better.

And.. and... oh! We can use quincy powers in our own body too!

Hollow also helps out with the pure power vs utility that quincy has and I REALLY want Cero Arrow. We need to give it a cool name.. like Megiddo Arrow or something german.
>>
>>26019799
>series coming to a head
Not at all.

Yhwach is still the better part of two years from waking up.

Aizen's plan is stuck at stage 1, because we keep ruining everything.

I'm pretty sure after this, we need to go to Soul Society and rescue Hinamori.
>>
>>26019833
That's supposed to be a suicide attack, he only lost the arm because he held back on it
>>
>>26019854
Min-maxers gonna min-max.
>>
>>26019854
It's combination of that and whenever we had to roll for xp, we seemed to always roll really well for hollow xp.
>>
>>26019833
>Ichigo just spams the attack while in Resurrección mode while laughing like a maniac

Only that's fucking wrong because being a Hollow affects your Kido abilities.

>>26019813
>>26019799
This
We tell her that our friend hasen't gotten better and we need to return her. Ask her that if we lose if she'll let us at least take her back. although that is showing weakness...
Also no to the "everything we've got" bit.

>>26019854

I meant that the battles will give more exp, not that the skills are worth more. We'll probably be getting 3000-5000 exp regularly as we start batting Captains and Espada often, at which point a couple of levels of Kidou will be no problem.

Not saying that, but if canon Ichigo hadn't been levelling Shinigami and Hollow powers at approximately equivalent speeds in canon then he wouldn't have been able to beat Hichigo for the role of King. If Hichigo decided he wants another contest for that role it'll be difficult to say the least.
>>
Fuck this hollow and quincy shit. Obviously the next thing we have to get is the glorious two handed method.
>>
>>26019956

Put the mask on!
>>
>>26019911
Yeah, exp points. Fighting Hichigo isn't that big of a deal, and he's conflicting with Zangetsu more than he is with us.
>>
>>26019956
Fight defensively using shunpo and blut vene.

Outlast her.

Only use hollow powers if defeat seems imminent.
>>
>>26019956
Try and last as long as possible without donning our mask, we have been relying to heavily on it recently.
>>
>>26019854
Why is that a problem? Honestly, I think it's pretty clear that he's wreaking havoc because he's stuck mid-evolution at 9999 exp. 1 more will fix that.

Worst case scenario, we have to remind him who is King.
>>
>>26019956
Mask. Fuck the price, we need to win.
>>
>>26019876

Who the fuck needs Bankai when you can just steal other's once you're a bad enough Quincy anyways.
>>
>>26019956
>action

Use control to tighten our Rieatsu and turn it back in on ourselves to increase our spirit pressure, ask Old Man Zangetsu to help us end this in one strike, make sure we're limber for some of our new high speed shunpo, and flush Blut Artie. We'll Mask up if this isn't enough once battle begins.
>>
>>26019956
ask OMZ and Hichigo advice, tell Harribel that win or lose we have to go to the living world afterward, thank her again, begin rolling 1s and 20s
>>
>>26019956
Don't start with the mask on.
Use shunpo and Blut Vene/Arriete to tank/hit her hard.
>>
>>26019956
can you just give us status updates through the fight? because we don't want to use the mask but will if we have to. A nice charge with Blut Arterie and lots of swording should do nicely for a while
>>
>>26019965
Hell no.

We put the mask on, he decides its time for a rematch.

Let's trust OMZ for now.
>>
>>26019956
>So, face Harribel?
Yes.

>Any plan of action or preparation for the fight?
Lead with speed. Try to settle it with just our sword (first five dice rolls) so we make it clear (or bluff) that we out class her. Augment those skills with Quincy Blut.

Use Hollow mask as a last resort. It has a time limit afterall.
>>
And so begins the great inter-thread war between the hollowbros and quincyfags.
>>
>>26019956
Analyze the area. Try and remember her fighting style from when you agreed to this silly deal.
Remind her that while this custom seems strange to you, and no matter the outcome, even if we win she's a friend; not a subordinate.
>>
Guys... Our Zanpakuto stat jumped up 2000 points. TWO FUCKING THOUSAND.

No one blow, do stuff like >>26020004 instead.

Consider this good practice with powerful opponents.

That's not how she works. It's an instinct that we'll have to work with.

She's a friend first, but she's a subordinate second.

Shit, didn't notice that. Okay, you've got a point. I still think people are overreacting some. Hichigo's a good guy, he's just a Hollow too. Really, our Horse-King battles are the same as our battle with Harribel here. The winner is in charge because they're the strongest.
>>
>>26020050
we are approaching full synchro
>>
Start out with Blut Vene and Shinigami abilities, progress to mask if things start turning south.

Also, I would be ever so delighted if the anon who archives this uses the following description:
"In which Ichigo attempts to befriend a Hollow, and learns that they're graduates of the Nanoha School of Friendship"
>>
>>26019956

Dont use mask unless we have no other option. Stick to Blut and Shunpo and wear down her defenses, get her to make mistakes, and then fire some decisive gestuga tenshos up her shark ass.
>>
>>26020075
And we have a winner! Surprised no one else noticed this.
>>
>>26020008

>Not trusting the Hollow that's always been there for you.
>Fighting a hollow to become her comrade/leader.

No. Shut up. You don't make sense.

Put the mask on. We'll be fine.

If it's rematch time, we'll ravage her with our zerker body while we wage war within.

We'll do an ichigo move and eclare that it was our loss because it wasn't "US" that was fighting or something.
>>

Yeah pretty much.

I really wish that Cosgrove waited a bit longer before choosing which post was the favorite.

Especially since the problem is I think this fight is also a test of Zangetsu's to see if he should rock the boat.
>>
Alrighty. looks like most people don't want to use the mask and use Blut (Artierie in the lead) and speed/shunpo.
>>
>>26020100
There's more to it than that. He has no reason to rebel against us AGAIN. The reason the old man is so fucked up is because Hichigo is rebelling against him, not us. He tried to tell us the truth, he tried to break free from control, and he tried to take advantage of the old man's weakened state to do it.
>>
>>26020050
Cosgrove is getting bored of the quest and wants to fasttrack us to godhood and be done with it?

No, Vene.

We need to out-tank her.

Fapfic guy here.
They're still coming. I've just been tied up lately. And not in a good way. Here's a sample:

You take a moment to collect yourself and regain composure. When you come to, Orihime is still straddling you, however her shirt and bra have been thrown to the side and you can feel her panties rubbing on your chest as she grinds into it, your hands subconsciously on her hips egging her along.

You feel your pants being tugged off, but Orihime blocks your view. You notice that her panties are darkening and a clear train has started forming where she’s been grinding against you. You feel a sticky wetness on your crotch and down your leg as your boxers are pulled off.

Sonido is wholly instinctual - it's the equivalent to being born with genetics that make you awesome at running. Starrk is so good at sonido that it's said to be teleportation.
Shunpo is somewhat trained - it's the equivalent to training hard at running fast. Yoruichi developed a whole line of technique based off of this and is widely regarded as the absolute fucking best when it comes to blazing speed. Also don't fuck with Shunko.
Hirenkyaku (flashing god step or whatever its translated as) is part genetic and mostly trained - it's the equivalent of being born with decent genetics, training hard, then being loaded up with cheaty illegal drugs (that don't have side effects!). It's the fastest *if* you're at master level and there's a lot of spirit particles around. Given Ichigo's spiritual powers, despite the high investment it's probably the best option.

>Also don't fuck with Shunko.

Shunko is actually a Kido technique, combined with skill in Hakuda.

This is why we need to level Kido and combine it with swordsmanship so we can put Kido in our sword.

>in the future I will require all uses of blue to be clearly Vene or Artierie. Failure to do so will make your suggestion null. Either/or or unlisted blut makes it hard as shit to do this accurately and causes fighting. As there was outcry, I will switch to vene.

I HAVE SPOKEN
>>
>>26020317

That's actually a really nice look at it.. I think we could probably combine Sonido and Fancyfeet(That's my translation). We van't really unlearn shunpo, but I think that if we want to outclass people in soeed, we need to combine hollow and Quincy movement types... The most sacrilegious of combos.
>>
>>26020271
A bit too much sentences starting with "You do this." Really this should be in third person.
>>
>>26020372

We also don't have any Hakudo skills. We have a bit of Karate and street fighting, but we don't have any Hakudo yet.

...I wonder if Hinamori can develop a swordmanship equivalent to Shunko and become a proper githyanki Gish.
>>
>>26020388
damn it guys, we're fucked
>>
>>26020392
>We also don't have any Hakudo skills

Which is why I specifically mentioned combining Kido with Sword.

>>26020335
Bloody hell, the Quincy/Shinigami/Hollow purists are everywhere.

Level everything. Maybe take a break from Hollow until we're a better Shinigami/Quincy, but we've seen that these skills improve exponentially when used together.

Shunko/Hierro/Arterie, for example, would be fucking terrifying.
>>
>>26020401

Vene is the way to go.

Mask up and tank her!
Fight like men!
Blow for blow!
Tit for tat!
Spank to pat!
Sword to board!
>>
>>26020317
So what kind of high speed movement is Ichigo's bankai? An extension of Shunpo or something entirely different?
>>
>>26020420
we needed to use arterie in order to keep up with Harribel in damage and keep her on her toes.
>>
>>26020391
Written that way to reflect as an extension of the quest.

I'll try and very it up so it's not as repetitive though.
Struggled for a little while on what the narrative should be and figured the same way the quest was done makes sense.

>>26020356
Thanks, hopefully I won't disappoint!
>>
>>26020432
*broad
>>
>>26020427
I agree, we should at least hit bankai or the quincy equivalent before leveling up our hollow anymore.
>>
>>26020432
>Mask up and tank her!
But we fight with speed. We're not tanking shit. All she's going to do is swing and miss. Hopefully.

>face Harribel

You look over a Chizuru, letting out a sigh.

"Well the old man was right... I can't just up and leave now... but if I lose... I might not ever get to go back..."

>blut vene 19

You approach Harribel, who stands in the middle of the desert. Her subordinates are back, in the cave. She readies herself.

"I realize that I have to fight you now. But Chizuru needs to be seen by a specialist, in the living world. So let's make this quick, with everything we've got."

She pauses and stops her stance. “Kurosaki Ichigo. You do not have the current strength that you had when we fought together, yet you say these words?!”

Her eyes grow dull, disappointed. “Put the mask on, Kurosaki Ichigo.

“Or do you not respect me?”
>>
>>26020433

His bankai just improves shunpo and basic parameters.

Boring.

>>26020450
I'm still all for going Hollow and Quincy evenly.

If we spread out too much we won't be great at anything.

And Hollow+Quincy seems to have the best synergy in pure stats vs utility. While shinigami is outright being a bard.

OMZ does'nt really WANT us using shinigami powers anyway... or something..
>>
>>26020474

Niggers, I told you to put on the mask.

We fight a hollow, like a hollow.

DO IT FUCKERS!
>>
>>26020474
MASK ON!!
>>
>>26020474
>"Ok... then I'm going to need to make this really quick."
>"Lets do it Langetsu."
>>
>>26020474
>Put it on

OMZ said our Hollow powers were stable, and we aren't going to win this without them.
>>
>>26020474
as you wish
put on mask, start draining the area of reiatsu
>>
>>26020474
"It's not me, it's my hollow that isn't cooperating, not to mention that a lot of my power is re-purposed for a bit of a surprise right now."
>>
>>26020523

>"I can only show it to you for a second..."
>>
>>26020474
"...Alright."
>>
>>26020523
Langetsu?
Also mask on. After all what could possibly go wrong.
>>
>>26020474

"That thing has a time limit. I'd been hoping to save it for when it would be needed. But well, if you insist."

And then we mask up and go full offense. We've got the Blut and high speed regen, so we can probably afford to take a couple hits to GET a couple hits.
>>
>>26020474
Well now we really DO need to go all out. None of that outlast her shit. Full tilt attack.
>"Ok... but if I lose control..."
>mask on
>"Take your friends and run."
>>
>>26020543

>Disrespecting a vasto lorde.

Man, you smokin some shit aren't you?
>>
>>26020474

Old Man Zangetsu did say our hollow powers were under control now...and we do need to mask up later to open the door home anyway...soooooooo

>Old Man Zangetsu, Zangetsu, lets do this, all three together. Let us respect the shit out of this nice woman, by defeating her soundly with violence.

"I wanted to see how far I had come first as myself, well then...no disrespect...no time to lose"

Pull down over face.
>>
Oh man I'm scared this is going to end oh so badly in one way or another.
>>
I'm surprised no one suggested siphoning more power from Chizuru.
>>
>>26020474
Mask on, i have no idea why we're not doing it in the first place
>>
>>26020567
>Let us respect the shit out of this nice woman, by defeating her soundly with violence.

>>26020561
Tanking a hit with vene is like to give an enemy pause and open them up for counterattack.

Imagine swinging a sword at a person's opening, and thinking that you've won, only for it to bounce off of their exposed flesh like some kind of fish.

Yeah, surprise, surprise.

When you come to, Orihime is still straddling your chest, her breasts swinging gently as she grind her warmth against you. Your hands drift lazily to her hips, as she smiles down at you. A sharp tug brings a gasp unbidden to her lips. " 'Hime," you murmur, as she slowly pendulums forward. Your sight is blotted out in equal measure by pale flesh and flowing hair. lighting brushing with lip and tongue, you tease at one nipple.
"Ichigoo." her thighs squeeze your chest. A tug at your pants alerts you to Momo's presence. Feeling your tongue cease, Hime suddenly drops forward, crushing her left breast against your face. Engulfed in the soft warmth you slowly open your mouth, taking in as much of her as you can. Rhythmically, you begin to suck upon her breast, feeling her hips rock in tandem.
