BLEACH QUEST XXXIX>But how do I work the system? Choices, choices… Previous threads archived: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Bleach%20QuestBleach Quest Twitter: https://twitter.com/QuestOpSkills and perks- http://pastebin.com/etq4kyMkFirst, 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>18>blut“Captain, look out!”Her eyes widen as you interpose yourself between her and her assailant as you call upon Blut Vene to reinforce yourself. Where the sinter should have penetrated, its deflected by your powers as a small Bee themed spirit floats in front of you, looking shocked.“H-How did you block me?!”Soi Fong’s look of disbelief toward you is increased as she looks at the spirit.“No, it can’t be? Suzumebachi?”The spirit nods at Ishida and Neliel appear, Momo is in Ishida’s arms. However, now isn’t the time for a tearful reunion as two figures approach.One is a girl in a shrine maiden outfit, the other is a brown haired man in a white furred coat, with purple accents.The man smiles at you, appearing right in front of you faster than you can react, as he reaches in an pulls a black shadow out of you.When the shadows clear what you see that he pulls out is… The Old Man Zangetsu.The old man gives you a cold look as he moves to stand beside the man in white.And you feel a pressure build up inside."Ichigo. /LET ME OUT./">You have control
>>26424114"And why would I do that?"
first of all- wonder how the fuck this is possible.Second of all, wonder why our monochrome bro wants to assume direct control so much.Third- wonder why that man is so fabulous- no wait, it's the coat. Nevermind.Third- Let Winter In.
'Keep talking to me and tell me everything you can Hichigo, we have to be careful'"Who the fuck are you and how did you pull my zanpakutou out?"
>>26424114Ask him to define out.Does he want to join the man in white, or does he want a turn in the driver's seat?Either way the answer is no.
>>26424114mental and verbal"guys what's going on?"
>>26424114"Okay partner!"OMZ is mad and our supposed hollow who is kinda nice wants out too.
>>26424114"Wow old man, you look, tall."Masa also never accounted for True Love. He's going to motorboat Jiggles first chance he gets. All the while making Hime believe, rightfully kinda, that he is just a part of Ichigo, and every part of Ichigo loves her.
>>26424163>HichigoStop saying that.His name is Zangetsu.
>>26424114Damnit Hichigo. You go out there and they'll kill us on sight. I'd pull your badge you hotshot but you're just too damn good.
>>26424114>also pastebin updated
>>26424114<Please tell me we aren't headed for another King/Horse moment Zangetsu>Then let him out. Maybe give everyone some warning to back the hell up before we do it.
>>26424114in our head"partner, what's going on? this have something to do with that voice earlier?"out loud"What's going on Old Man? Everything all right?"
>>26424114>>Zanpakuto - are currently at 10,000 out of 10,000 to reach next rank- SOUL PSYCHE HAS HIGH ENOUGH SYNCHRONIZATION RATINGS. MANIFESTATION IS NOW POSSIBLE.Define out Zangetsu
>>26424114'Zangetsu, what's going on?'"Old Man, what's going on?"
>>26424197If we are, I have just the song for it, courtesy of Pink Floyd.
>>26424181true true, but swap the name and it's my suggestion
>>26424114"Stay with me and tell me what is happening in there"
>>26424114"Sure thing. I trust you, Zangetsu."Don't give Masa-boy a chance to force him out without our consent.
>>26424114"As you wish"
>>26424114Well... Let him out?As long as he means not possessing us.
>>26424114Manifest Zangetsu-hollow because he's asking.
>>26424210Oh, that's what he means?Well then that's fine with me.
>>26424114"Are you sure partner? that voice isn't still calling to you, is it?"he says no, let him loose
>OMZ and Hichigo setting on the ledge of a building eating falaffle>"Man won't this guy ever shut up?">"Oh hey he wants to talk to us directly n-">OMZ holds up a hand and sighs>"I've got this.">Disappears>Sighs "Man... well at least the falaffle is good."
>>26424114Manifest him.According to our sheet we are fully synchronized with our zanpakuto now.
>>26424114"Fine, but you'd better not be trying to stand on your own so soon after reminding me about working together, Zangetsu."
>>26424114Let out the entity we know to be our Hollow and our Zanpakuto at once...why not...but not by pulling on the mask."Old Man Zangetsu? What is this?!" we have a good idea what this is, Soi Fon just called her Zanpakuto spirit by name...this shit is surprising, but we can play dumb whilst our allies form up."Hime, heal Kenpachi!"
Fucking OMZ holding us backwelp, GG Muramasa
>>26424114"Since your asking, I will manifest you. Why is the Old Man angry?"
>>26424114"What's going on?! Are you ok? What just happened?!"
>>26424264Heh, that sounds good.
>>26424114To Hichigo, via our brain: "Out like outside with us out here in the real world, or out like 'I'ma become a Hollow and devour the souls of the living', because remember how that second option turned out last time. Lets not do that again. No fun for anyone."To OMZ: "Yo, Old Man, you know this jackass? Whats this all about?"
>>26424114[x] let it out
>>26424114"I'm not sure what's going on... but I trust you. Whatever this is. We'll fight it together side by side."
>>26424264Sounds good to me.
>>26424114Manifest him. We have a high enough synch ratio.And then we gonna learn Bankai the traditional way mid-arc.
>>26424114Say yes to manifestation. Ask Zangetsu what's going on since he doesn't seem angry. Then ask Old Man what's going on.
>>26424114Manifest.And as we do, throw off the disguise with a flourish. Time to show Masamune or whatever his name is who he's fucking with.
>Ishidas face when
>>26424332Changing my vote to manifesting and exfiltrating as we shed our disguise.Still, say "What the hell is this? Who the hell are you (to white coated jerk)?"
>>26424210WHAT DOES IT MEAN
>>26424344Oh come on, not even Ishida is as big a shithead as Mort.
>So, seems like you all mostly agree to let him manifest.
So, who's in favor of ripping open a Garganta in a moment so all nonessentials can escape? We kind of need to stick around for the resolution but someone should take Momo out of here
>let the awesome out
Oh dear it looks like things are finally getting interesting.Can't keep track of all the weird wapanese names?:bleach.wikia.com/wiki/CharactersInterested in some sightseeing around town?:http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Karakura_TownWant to be an expert like Cosgrove? Read the manga:http://starkana.com/manga/B/BleachToo lazy to read? How about some /tv/?:http://www.watchcartoononline.com/anime/bleachIt’s on Hulu too. Well most of it anyway.Want more /tg/ related Bleach in your life? How about a d20 system?:bleachd20.wikidot.comHoly on a moment would you? My Zanpakuto seems to need something.
>>26424380Need to mask up for that. Let's not blow that particular secret just yet. Trump card it.
>>26424374Yeah.Worse case is we get our bankai through violence.
>>26424374cautiously. Ask his intent first, remind him not to go batshit, etc.We aren't just giving in, we're telling him "Just this once, because you've been good."
>>26424114Manifest Zangetsu while asking what the hell is going on and why Old Man is mad.
>>26424380Resolution?It's just beginning.
>>26424374What could possibly go wrong?
>>26424374Only if we do the DBZ fusion dance to put him back later.
>>26424374Be cautious first.Like make sure he's not with the man in white, or wants to control us.
>>26424417Do it!Even if it isn't necessary, he IS us, he would totally agree.
>>26424374Yep, he hasn't gone full berzerker, and he just worked with us to demonstrate how a Zanpakuto should fight with its wielder. We trust him enough, and if worst comes to worst, we fight him for dominance while our friends hightail it out of here.
So Muramasa was just the catalyst for us to achieve bankai... funny how that works out
>>26424374He's a cool enough guy. That and he keeps telling us to trust him. Also we have no idea what's going on anyway and it sounds urgent.
>>26424432Pretty much this.
>>26424374Yeah, let him out while asking what the situation is because we sure as hell don't know.
>>26424056Please don't. It would be incredibly bad for everyone.
>>26424374Be slightly wary, but for most part trusting of him.
>Are you thinking what I'm thinking partner?>Hell yeah I am!>DOUBLE>GETSUGA>TENSHO!
>>26424374Yes, but we need to ask what's happening.
>>26424462The post doesn't link to anything.
Requesting Large full body pics of Ichigos Inner Hollow and Muramasa.
>>26424481>Double darts>With Getsugas>Fist bump>"Fuck we're awesome.">"I KNOW RIGHT?!"
>>26424481>this happens>muramasa literally explodes from the full power of the utter bullshit that is ichigo.
>AgreeYou stare cautiously at the Old Man. “Hey, Old Man, what’s going on?”He impassively stares at you. ‘Ichigo. /PLEASE!/”You let out a sigh and incline your head in agreement. As you do, you see the Old Man tense up before he’s in front of you, swinging your shikai, Zangetsu, at you.As he’s about to connect, his blow is blocked by an inverted version of the same weapon, attached to a pale arm in a white shihakusho emerging from your chest. The Old man steps back as your Hollow pulls himself out of your chest, brushing himself off. He sneers at your other Zanpakuto spirit.“You screwed up, Old Man ‘Zangetsu.’”His words are mocking and hateful He glances back at you.“Ichigo. Tell me, what’s my name?”>You have control

>>26424540"Zangetsu, duh. What, you forget your own name or something?"
>>26424540"/straight face/ Zangetsu... We've gone over this."
>>26424540Don't be stupid Zangetsu. Did you forget your own name just because I used it?
>>26424540Oh fuck...Did we fuck up?
Rolled 2>>26424540zangetsu, motherfucker. now get your shit back together, the pair of you
>>26424540"Same as it always has been, you're Zangetsu, aren't you. Okay, lets do this"
>>26424540"Have you really been cooped up for so long you've forgotten your name...Zangetsu?"
>>26424540SAY MY NAME BABY!ZangetsuLOUDER!ZangetsuI CAN'T HEAR YOU PARTNER!ZANGETSU!YA THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! AGAIN!ZANGETSU!Hell ya mother fucker.
>>26424540Zangetsu. Ichigo. The three of us are each other, and are called each other
>>26424540"Zangetsu, as it's always been".Grin at him "Let's do it, partner".
>>26424565I'm trying to do a cover for 40; that won't work.
>>26424584Well the thing is that unlike in canon, our Zangetsu actually has a pretty great bond with Ichigo.That means that he actually cares about how the Old Man's been hiding things from us, and bossing him around.
>>26424540"Your name... is ZANGETSU!"
>>26424540> As you do, you see the Old Man tense up before he’s in front of you, swinging your shikai, Zangetsu, at you.Oh, OMZ is trying to wield True Zangetsu. That's not going to be happening without a fight, I suspect.
>>26424540"Really? You're gonna ask me that, partner? You should know this already. Did you space out so hard you forgot your own name?""Let's kick some ass, Zangetsu."
>>26424540>Raise eyebrow>You're both Zangetsu. At least as far as I'm concerned. Didn't we cover this before?
>>26424630Bit small, but thanks. I'l looking for head one, but side views can work too.
>>26424540"Uur name is Zangetsu"
>>26424540It's Zangetsu, partner. We've had this conversation before, only now its the old man that needs some sense beat into him instead of you or me. I guess we're all pretty thickheaded, huh?"
>>26424630WRONG HOUSE NOW
You give him a confused look.“You’re name’s Zangetsu, have you forgotten?”Your hollow shudders, grinning. “Again, please.”Even more confused now, you stare at him. “You’re Zangetsu.”He begins laughing hysterically.“That’s right. /I/ am Zangetsu. Always have been. Always will be!”Sticking his tongue out in a sneer, he hatefully glares at the Old Man.“You? You messed up! You’re just a fake who stole my name! You aren’t even a Zanpakuto spirit, are you?“’Sealed King?!’”>response?
>>26424684this pretty much it
>>26424684this, completely and utterly this.OMZ done fucked up somewhere.
>>26424540"Old Man, I thought you said you'd challenge me before you faced me in combat."
>>26424718Did we just enter a fucking delorean and push ourselves some years into the future.Welp, there goes our plan of having the big reveal being dramatic
>>26424718ohshitdidn't expect him to pull that so early."...is that where you got the 'King and his Horse' bullshit from?"
>>26424718dafuq? look, getting sick of your shit, stupid spirits. get back in my head, or else i will pack up and leave back to the madhouse
>>26424718Old man, looks like its time for some secrets to come out
>>26424718"What is your name old man? You've been apart of me for all this time and I still don't know it."
>>26424718"So, I guess the time has come, old man? Fine then, let's settle this. Afterwards, you're going to explain yourself."
>>26424718>Response?"I know you and me like to keep taunting all day, but if the Old Man has gone AWOL, we need to focused on him.""I'll be asking questions after this though, you can guarantee that."
>>26424718stare at the old man"Explain further"
>>26424718just in a deadpan voice:"wat?"just at this point be confused as shit what the fucks even going on and why.
>>26424747Heh, just found that one. Thanks.
>>26424718"Guys. Something you want to clue me in on?"And who's the weirdo in the fur coat?"
>>26424718"Uh... partner, I get that this is a big moment for you, but is this really the most appropriate venue?"Turn to the Old Mansay>>26424731
>>26424718"Hey now, just because he isn't a Zanpakuto doesn't mean he can't be Zangetsu too. I was even Zangetsu for a little while. But let's remind him why we work together, and maybe explain why secrets aren't always a good thing."
>>26424718Maximum Frown.Then Frown Harder!"Glad that i was taught that i could be betrayed by someone close then. Who've thunk it would be closer than i thought."Point at Masamura"You started this then? You're the next guy im going through then!"
>>26424718Tell Zangetsu we've been over this already. It doesn't matter who he is, whether friend or foe we must move forward. The Old Man must've decided to fight us early.
>>26424718"Zangetsu, calm down. Once this is all resolved we're all going to have a nice long and serious talk about this. I know he has a connection to the king he warned me against, and here and now probably isn't the best time to bring it up. However, it does look like the time for aggression and defense until we get a better idea what is going on, and who the prick in the nice jacket it,"
>>26424764I think this is important.Like Soi Fon is literally standing right there, and even if she doesn't know what Yhwach looks like, she damn well knows who the Sealed King is.
>>26424747>>26424630We need to learn how to fight like Hichigo did in that episode.Because that shit's nuts.
>>26424718hey guys just a heads up soi fons still here, probably wondering what the flying shit is going on.i'm half waiting for her to just fucking end us while we arn't paying attention, in addition muramasa is probably gonna try pulling some kinda bullshit.
>>26424731this is the best response
>>26424771>I was even Zangetsu for a little while.10/10 fucking supporting
>>26424718"... I have no idea what's going on... Are we fighting now? Because you both seemed kind of cool with each other a while back..."
>>26424731I mean seriously.
>>26424718Goodnight everyone. This Eastcoaster is signing out.Try to fix this, and don't lose us our pseudo-friendship/aquaintance with Soi Fong. I think we could become close friends, oddly enough, with some effort.
>>26424771this. We bond with all the things
>>26424718And then OMZ went on a fucking tear and killed everything.
>>26424718Cosgrove, status report of everyone around us.Are they all just kind of standing around confused?
>>26424806>Now everyone calm down. We are all Zangetsu here.
>>26424799Don't talk about the "sealed king" situation outside of our mind. Soi Fon is here, and we've barely got her trust as it is.
>>26424771>>26424731best two response please combine
>>26424718"Zangetsu, I've known the Old Man was keeping secrets for a while now. Can we NOT do this in front of like twenty people, some of which are currently our enemies? Make no mistake, we WILL have works about this later, but now might not be the time."
>>26424718"Sealed Ki--Oh what the hell?! Screw it, after I beat some sense into you, I'm gonna grill you for information like a :insert Japanese grilled food of your choice here:!"
>Aizens reaction to all of this.
>>26424828>Soi Fong is shocked.>Everyone else seems confused>White coat seems baffled.
>>26424718Huh. I thought we were all Zangetsu at one point or another. What should I call you instead, Old Man? I mean, partner's already taken. How you like bro?
>>26424828Yeah, the remaining trio from Squad 11 are here, what are they doing.All of our teammates as well.Is Hime healing Kenpachi...this will probably be important.
>>26424718>Throw up hands>"WHAT THE SHIT IS HAPPENING?!"Lets not forget there's a weird white dude and a shrine maden who just pulled out half our zanpakuto here... not to mention ms. murderfly's murderfly.
"Wait, Sealed King? As in the guy he specifically warned me about and told me not to be anything like? He is that person? Or some image or imprint of that person?...It just never stops happening, does it?"
>>26424843So, everyone's confused. Okay,
>>26424839Yeah this.I mean there is a time and place Zangetsu.
>>26424843>White coat is baffledCLEARLY THIS IS THE CORRECT TIME TO STRIKE
>>26424843WE USE THE CONFUSION AS A SMOKE-SCREEN TO MAKE OUR FIRST....something.
>>26424861supporting these two
>>26424839This.I mean holy shit man. I know you're angry but information security is still important.
>>26424861>So something like these two, then?>is that right?
>>26424863with slight of hand to snag the coat? GENIUS
>>26424843Even Ishida?I could have sworn that he knows the Kaiser Gesang.
>>26424863But seriously. No.Let's see if we can get some answers out of our doppelganger or hitchhiker. Or something. >>26424861these sound good.
>>26424843PUNCH WHITE COAT IN THE DICK!Clearly he's a cock and was chasing Ishida. We don't know what the fuck is going on, but we're sure punches fix everything.
>>26424881Works for me.
>>26424850This plus: You know what, I need to beat something. Hard. You up for a tag team asswhoppin'?
>>26424881Yes, plus telling Zangetsu not to reveal sensitive information.
>>26424881As long as we're a little confused about it all, sure.
>>26424839>>26424731These two be my vote. >>26424881Eh.
>>26424881Possibly >>26424839Instead of >>26424771But >>26424731is good.
>>26424894we really like synchronized tag teams, don't we? Its starting to be as common as our mid-combat therapy
>>26424904>UpdateAll of these.
>>26424881I think >>26424839 is better, because it's not like the Old Man being suspicious is something new.
Thought these two where cool with each other now... guess not.
>>26424910Fighting alongside someone is much better than fighting -for- someone.
>>26424904This is better than the two I voted for I guess because the no revealing info is important.
>>26424881yeah, sure.Though now I'm imagining a new white board for Ichigo's powers."Okay, so I inherited Zangetsu and Shinigami powers from Dad...but Zangetsu is also my hollow...I inherited Old Man who is probably my Quincy powers, from my mom...but mom is where the hollow was sealed...so why is my shinigami powers from dad the same entity as the hollow that was in my mom? Shouldn't the hollow have been fused with Old Man? Argh this is confusing"Soi Fon is standing there with the Captain Commander "So, he helped stop the Zanpakuto Rebellion, but do we really want to deal with his weapons grade bullshit. Look at the other boards he already filled. I mean how doesn't he understand how he wound up making out with a Lesbian,"
>>26424920Their truce has been more about not constantly waging a war for dominance inside our head while we're trying to get shit done I think.
>>26424832WOULD THE REAL ZANGETSU PLEASE STAND UP!PLEASE STAND UP!PLEASE STAND UP!
>>26424884He does, shit just got real, and we might be able to make the leap about who the Vandenreich in mom's diary were in relation to the sealed king.
>>26424935>All of Soul Society stands
>>26424926>Fighting alongside someone is much better than fighting -for- someone.Something Ichigo has yet to really GET in canon.>>26424947> now I've lost it
>>26424904I'm fine with amending >>26424771 to say later instead of but.
>>26424935as sung by Oetsu, as he takes a solo trip to the Court of Pure souls to investigate this bullshit with his creations.
>>26424954>Something Ichigo has yet to really GET in canon.It's a machismo thing. Same reason Renji's obsessed with protecting Rukia. Really, he and Ichigo share a lot in common.
>>26424954that's because canon Ichigo has to maintain Shoenen drama by "protecting everyone" and "carrying the weight"we want as many people on both sides to not die, except the douchebags, which means TEAM SPIRIT
>>26424881I like it
>>26424718Well I guess Bleach Quest might be coming to a close sooner than I thought.
So...anyone have any idea what we should spend our xp on next? I'm thinking Quincy for Ransotengai
>>26425010>implyingwell it will once soi fon gets around the batshit insanity going around her and decides to kill us or some shit.
>>26424389Gin... you uh... might want to ignore that for now.
>>26425023I'd like to put a vote towards Sonido. Just so we have ALL THE GO FAST.
>>26425035If we stack all of our go-fasts together, does that make must the fastest?
>>26425010Dude Aizen has yet to make any serious moves yet.And there's still almost three years before the real Yhwach makes his move.
>>26425035And then we spend a week training to use them in concert...then when we get bringer light, we toss that in the mix too.We need to learn synthesis for all our disparate power sets.
>>26425035Sonic the Hybrid
>>26425044I don't know. But I'd like to find out.
>>26425025>implying that we aren't time skipping to the quincy arc immediately after finishing this one.I'm worried about the compressed time line, but what can you do.Also, get Orihime to heal up Kenny. We could use a meat shield about now.
>>26425035but then we become canon ichigo, and he's no fun
>>26425035But increasing Shunpo is more likely to give us a Perk, like Swordsmanship did.
>>26424881>No one freaking out that OMZ just tried to kill us
>>26425066He never stopped being shady.
You stare a bit disbelievingly at them. "Hey now, just because he isn't a Zanpakuto doesn't mean he can't be Zangetsu too. I was even Zangetsu for a little while. But let's remind him why we work together, and maybe explain why secrets aren't always a good thing."Zangetsu snorts. “Like he’s your friend. He even broke his word.”You stare at the Old Man, shock at the betray setting in. "Old Man, I thought you said you'd challenge me before you faced me in combat."He closes his eyes as your hollow laughs. “Yeah right. I’ll be honest with you here and now Ichigo. This guy? The moment you began to awaken my powers, he was already planning to kill you.”You look at the Old Man who closes his eyes in resignation.“See. He won’t even lie about it.”Ishida is staring between you and the Old Man trying to make sense of something while Soi Fong is staring in disbelief and shock at the Old Man.You grit your teeth. “Zangetsu, I knew that the Old Man was hiding something. But was now the best time?”Your hollow looks at you disbelievingly. “What?! You don’t think it better to know? I took this chance to tell you the truth. He’d never let it come out otherwise.”Zangetsu pops his neck. “Not that it matters. I’m going to kill him, right here and now.”The man in white looks confused at him. “How did you resist my call? How did you resist me drawing out your true instincts?!”Zangetsu smirks at him. “Because I /am/ pure instinct.”The man’s eyes open in realization. “Then, that means… you are a h-”He’s cut off as Zangetsu throws his weapon at him, forcing him to withdraw. “Hey, hey, hey. Didn’t you hear Ichigo? He doesn’t want that sorta stuff going around.”Hefting his weapon, Zangetsu looks back at you. “There’s no getting through to the old man any more, Ichigo. The only thing you can do is take him down.”He smirks. “I’ll take care of that for you.”>Actions?
>>26425050Plus Fullbringers and some movies along with the fact that Ichigo has only been /in/ with spiritual stuff for a month.
>>26425066Please. If we never made friends with people who tried to kill us at some point, we would have NO FRIENDS.
>>26425023Remember to save 1xp incase hollow spontaneously unlocks! We're in battle with our zanpakuto (sort of), the chances sudden power unlocks/acquisition are pretty high.
>>26424718I... I think we just gave him a chubby.oh god does this mean we unlock true form?
>>26425076Hi- Zangetsu stop that now, if you kill him ill lose my quincy powers and we cant be having that
>>26425076"Hey, we're partners. We take him down together."Captain Soi-Fon, Ishida, could you keep an eye on the weirdo in the fur coat? This fight's kind of personal."Attack Old Man with Zangetsu.
>>26425017Simon, more like.>>26424983>Really, he and Ichigo share a lot in common.Indeed, pity that wasn't really explored that much in canon.>>26424974PRECISELY.
>>26425076bash them both over the head, shout baka, and force them inside you. not in a lewd way of course
>>26425076Let Zangetsu and the Old Man fight while we go against that white cloaked guy because he fucking started interrupting our mission that was going completely smooth.
>>26425076"Zangetsu, he is still a part of my power. If you're willing to take him down, you do it our way. You're a part of me, and can do what I do...show him how we do things without killing, I've got the smarmy fucker in the nice coat."
>>26425076"After all that you said about us working together? Not likely."
>>26425076"WAIT! What's happening?!">Also did the guy in white do the tacti-cool retreat? Because I sure as hell would.
>>26425076"Lets just beat up the pompous little shit and take his coat shall we?"We need to have the team pop off our shinigami outfits now. The jig is up, it is time for class.
>>26425076"Why?"Blut Vene to prepare to defend OMZ if Zangetsu jumps the gun.
>>26425076"Hold on guys. I gotta go hit myself.""If it's a fight the old man wants, it is a fight he shall get. Zangestu! Strike as one!" >Number One begins
>>26425076"For me? Nah. We do this the right way. We do this together.""Hime! Heal up Captain Murderface! And then Fall back and get Yoruichi on the line! Getting caught up in this is bad news!"
>>26425076Correction. WE'LL do it, together. I might be a real moron sometimes, but I won't make you clean up my messes. I should have confronted him earlier, I'm sorry Zangetsu. I promise, I'll make it up to you after we wipe the floor with these guys.
"Don't waste him. Just smack him around so we can drag him off and have a nice civil conversation about this later. He's still a part of my being, regardless of his past and present actions. In the meantime, I do believe that it is now Beating-O-Clock."
>>26425144>"For me? Nah. We do this the right way. We do this together."And starkWe stummon everyoneWe are going to stomp the shitler in the face.
>>26425144withdrawing my statement, supporting this, suggesting we replace "Yoruichi" with "Support Leader"
>yfw we solo the rebellion arc AND the SS arc at once
>>26425127The problem with this is that Zangetsu really doesn't want a roommate. And, as a ball of instinct, he's mostly killing intent.
>>26425076WE STAND TOGETHER*Disguise comes off with a flourish*
>>26425144>YoruichiGet out you fucking idiot. Why would you even mention her name out loud, especially with Soi Fon right there?
>>26425076"Zangetsu, I know he was planning on killing me.He flat out said he would if I ever became like... him? I guess?Besides, whatever else he is, he's a manifestation of my powers as well."
>>26425076Whatever happens. The suits come out.
>>26425160Namefag are you really this retarded? Calling our hollow friends to fight means we reveal /everything/ and Genocide will torch us.
>>26425174Because he's a fucking idiot.
>>26425076"What, and let you have all the fun, after all that shit about working together? He's my problem too after all.""Captain Soi Fon, mind keeping an eye on the creepy dude in the white coat while I handle this?"
>>26425076"What're you talking about? We kick his ass together for being a douche, then we find out what he has to say for himself
>>26425144I think we should get one of the others to send Mizuiro the status report. We're going to be a bit busy fighting our zanpakuto and handing the true nature of our human and hollow friends (the discovery of non-shinigami trespassers would not be good for us).
>>26425144replace Yoruichi with "everyone" it might only be two more people, but it sounds a hell of a lot more intimidating
>>26425076"Man what are we doing, making this whole thing about the three of us.I'm pretty sure the creepy guy in the white coat has some kind of crazy plan he can't wait to monologue about."
>So, reveal outfit and fight together with him?>if so, then writing.
>>26425216So much this.
>>26425220Ayup. Cautioning him that we already knew that OMZ was planning that.
You stepped into the wrong ally motherfucker.
>>26425220Yeah, whatever works. I doubt we could stop Muramasa fast anyway.
>>26425220>Reveal outfitWHAT CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG?!
>>26425237Hey buddy, that's a mighty fine coat you got there. Rich looking feller like you'd hardly miss it, am I right?
>>26425220>reveal outfitWhat?that's just-we're wearing what's basically a quincy outfit. We don't want Soi Fon seeing the Quincy outfit.
>>26425238I hope we can't. I want me a war.
>>26425220Eh, I like keeping the shinigami uniform on.I mean if both Zangetsu and us are wearing white, it'll get confusing.Also dressing like Yhwach doesn't seem like a smart move.
>>26425244the only problem I forsee is attracting even more women by looking like a badass
>>26425248Soi fon won't recognise it.Also it's got the badass cloak.
>>26425220Hell no.Why the fuck would we reveal a quincy uniform.
>>26425248aren't we wearing a white tux with a black cloak
>>26425266>No uniform switch, then? Alrighty
>>26425220I'd prefer not to reveal the outfit yet, but fighting together with him is fine
>>26425248I think she knows we're not good already m8. Besides we need to look cool for things to work well.
>>26425265Until Cap. Comm. sees us as he strolls down the street to check out that bird problem.
>>26425220>The manifestation of our Quincy powers goes completely rogue>Hey guys, let's put on our Quincy-inspired uniformFuck no, what the fuck.
>>26425271Agreed. No sense making things worse.
>>26425266Its a badass suit that has a similar profile to the yet to be revealed Vandenreich's uniforms. It's a pimp ass white suit. I guess we can save that reveal for later though.
>>26425271Ya, not just yet. We can always do it later if out regular outfit gets shredded or when our full team gets together.
>>26425220Yes, our outfit is Zangetsu's isn't it?
>>26425220No revealing the outfit, but still fight together with Hichigo.
>>26425270>White>what is quincy everything>Sealed king>Soi fon is already making fucking connections>wearing a cloak just like OMZ'sTHERE IS NO WAY THIS COULD GET US KILLED
>>26425293Soi Fon's a noob. She doesn't know shit yet.It's only the old, old vets who would.
>>26425271Good! Thank the bargaining deity!
>>26425235I agree with the part about reminding Zangetsu that the Old Man DID say he'd kill us if he ever thought there was a risk of us becoming like the Sealed King.Which is... him?Somehow?
>>26425271Yes, no uniform switch.Doesn't make sense, and it's better fashion statement if we look the same as Hichigo but with just an inverted color palette.
>>26425311Good point, our life keeps getting more confusing
So, all for operation: "who ordered a beating?"
>>26425309And guess what the chief of the secret police -MAY- be informed about?
>>26425309You're right, but Quincies have always had a thing for white. That's got to be common knowledge, and our sword just called OMZ the Sealed King. There is no fucking way a CAPTAIN does not know about the Sealed King. Wearing a cloak JUST LIKE HIS would make us even worse in the eyes of the ALREADY UBER SUSPICIOUS CAPTAIN.
>>26425329More like operation beat some sense into OMZ and deal with this white coat dude, but essentially yeah.
>>26425216I feel like we should work this in.Because really, we haven't even had time to appreciate that Hinamori has been rescued.
>>26425220>fight together with him?Yes>>So, reveal outfit God no.
>>26425350Lets worry about the details later, for now, lets kick the ass of the guy who looks like the sealed king in front of her.
>>26425311I mean what is this?
>>26425358Remember Momo, our girlfriend?The reason we came here in the first place?I feel like there's too much of everyone just standing around and watching our bullshit happen.
>>26425309Isn't it her job to covertly assassinate threats to Soul Society? Wouldn't those threats include a resurgence of the quinies?
>>26425372a cautionary tale."Don't become like [your] old man," etc.
You shake your head. “After all that about working together? No, we’re going to do this together. As bad as he acts, he’s still a part of me, too.”You turn back to Soi Fong. “Captain, can you keep an eye on the creep in the white coat? Hime, could you heal captain murder face?”Orihime nods, on the move, as Soi Fong raises an eyebrow, dodging the bee spirit. “I think I’m going to be a bit busy here. So your name’s Ichigo? I have a lot to ask you when this is all over.”You see Ishida cut off the man in white trying to escape, his energy chainsaw out. “I’ve got this, Kuroski.”You give him a grateful nods and walk up beside Zangetsu. “Let’s do this, together.”He looks over at you and gives you a soft smile before his arm turns gigantic and he throws you over to Harribel. “Keep him safe, and out of this, girl.”You try to move but Harribel’s arms wrap around you, restricting you. “Zangetsu? What are you doing?”He gives you the same smile. “Ichigo, what you want to protect is not what /I/ want to protect.”/INTERLUDE ZANGETSU//beginning in a moment/
>>26425386they were genocided, remember?
>>26425385Because everyone is either trying to figure out what the fuck is going on, or is too amused or aroused to step in and help.
>>26425385why haven't they been hauling ass for the last five story posts?Seriously? Why?>>26425395OH SHIT ZANGETSU WHAT ARE YOU DOING
>>26425395>He gives you the same smile. “Ichigo, what you want to protect is not what /I/ want to protect.”OH SHITSUPERICHIGO BANKAI TIMESHITS GONNA BE NUTS
>>26425395>He looks over at you and gives you a soft smile before his arm turns giganticWhat?>He gives you the same smile. “Ichigo, what you want to protect is not what /I/ want to protect.”NO! YOU BASTARD! NOOOO!
>>26425395Spontaneous Bankai or Resurreccion to escape?Could we just order her as her King to fucking stand down?
>>26425395Whelp, we're going to have to have our shinigami/hollow powers, quincy powers, or both replaced after all this.
Wait, so Harribel is just doing what the old man says?The shit?
>>26425452Eh, we can trust him for now.Might have a chance to catch up with everyone.
>>26425395>“Ichigo, what you want to protect is not what /I/ want to protect.”Aw shit, we're losing all of our Quincy powers, aren't we?
>>26425395Gad dummit Zangetsu, I'll have your badge for this!
>>26425462Nah, most Quincy probably don't have an avatar of Yhwach living in their heads.
>>26425468Fuck, you're right.Too early in the morning, too many Zangetsus, not enough coffee. Like, in the world.
>>26425395so wait what the shit?did he really just do the canon ichigo thing since we seem to be more workaroundy of sorts?
>>26425452We're more or less her equal, and so she has every right to protect us like we'd protect her. Plus, she has more than enough reason to want to protect us as it is. Now she has an excuse.
>>26425473WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN THAT DEAL.
>>26425395>Hichigo heroic sacrifice death flagWe'll never forget you man!
theres only a few more hollow skills i can think of:HeirroHollow formRessurectionGaping maw (Those giant mouth things that try to eat people)Any else?
>>26425473oh shit i forgot about that, this is gonna suck dicks isn't it.
>>26425473I don't think that's how it works?I mean even though the Old Man has pretty much completely ditched us, we still apparently have Quincy powers right now.Like... his existence isn't necessarily necessary for us to use them?Also that implies that Zangetsu isn't going to try to eat the Old Man, and make the Old Man's power his own.
>>26425491Fullbring before Aizen is dealt with
>>26425473Doubt it.We're a Quincy by blood same as any other. Just because the creepy old dude living in our head bites the dust shouldn't mean our bloodline stops mattering.
>>26425485Pretty sure she submitted to us as a hollow before.She can't just take that back, it's not about her protecting us, it's about the fact that we are her king.
>>26425491Eh, the thing is that right now Zangetsu's being the aggressor, which makes it more complicated.
>>26425508Also, Zanpakuto spirits "killed" while manifested by the dick in the coat don't die, they just revert to a broken Sealed Sword that can be fixed as normal for Zanpakuto.Kenpachi did it to Wabisuke.
>>26425510no she submitted to our hollow, which is hichigo.so yeah he gives orders, shit happens is my guess as to how it goes down.
>>26425481Actually, they do. OMZ is just a reflection of the Quincy Bloodline powers.Remember how Ishida's bow was supercharged by coming into contact with Zangetsu, ie, Ichigo's Reiatsu? Well, Ichigo's Quincy Blood has direct access to that same power source, all day, e'ery day. As such, OMZ is a tangible reflection of the source of all Quincy power.That's how I see it, anyway.
>>26425473Probably. Good thing we know how to get them back. By which I mean we really need to get Ishida working on restoring our powers, then convenient run into his father.
>>26425531>hichigostopped reading there
>>26425395Also "Momo! Wait, MOMO!"
>>26425539I don't think OMZ is literally Yhwach though.Just kind of an abstract representation of Yhwach due to genetic memory bullshit, and quincy blood mixing strangely with the shinigami and hollow powers.
>>26425531No- what?She didn't submit to Zangetsu. That's not what went down.At this point in time, I think preservation of the guy who turned her whole world around, and was one of her first true friends barring her followers, overrules any sort of hierarchy there may be.
>Old Man kills Zangetsu>Out Hollow and Soul Reaper powers vanish>We collapse; feeling like a part of our very soul has just been ripped out of us>The pain grips up, we collapse sobbing>Old Man stands over us>Raises his cleaver>"I'm truly sorry Ichigo...">His head fucking explodes, followed by the rest of him>Orihime standing a few feet away, tears in her eyes
>>26425581Don't think that's how it works.I'm pretty sure the battle is more for who consumes the other, as opposed to obliterates.
>>26425587It's a Quincy killing a Hollow.
>>26425581...yeah, Orihime rejecting him might nuke our Quincy powers.
>>26425587>I'm pretty sure the battle is more for who consumes the other, as opposed to obliterates.So EVERYONE WANTS A PIECE OF YOU?
>>26425596Not really, it's a Quincy using Skalervi to eat a hollow, just like he did in the past.
Okay this whole thing has gotten way too abstract and confusing.
>>26425620I know, isn't it wonderful.
>>26425620Such is life in FULL KUBO mode.
>>26425620Like the manifestation of our powers sacrificing themselves to save us is kind of inherently flawed.
>>26425564If it were an abstract representation, then he wouldn't 'Appear excatly as Yhwach did 2000 years ago', which one of the characters made mention when seeing OMZ manifest. Can't remember who off the top of my head.Also, Yhwach knew Ichigo had Quincy blood just by looking at him. That's why he called Ichigo 'Son'.This is all conjecture until KUBO anyway.
...Is this whole thing an excuse to make Ichigo be a fullbringer for a while?
>"Gin, do you have any idea what the ever living fuck is going on?">"What, can't hear you, too busy motor boating Rangiku and her cat girl Sword Spirit."
>>26425684I doubt it. It's probably going to make us choose shinigami/hollow or quincyas if we'd side with the shady old man over our awesome hollowbro
>>26425700Man but our quincy blood is as much a reminder of our mother as our orange hair.
>>26425700And Ishida in his fickleness abandons the friendship brigade.
>>26425700Quincies are still better.
>>26425719He'll be back.He always comes back.
>>26425719Yhwach is kind of responsible for his mom dying, so...
>>26425711>Choose HollowBro over OMZ>Hair Turns White>Realize this is going to earn you even more shit at school than the Orange hair ever did.
/INTERLUDE ZANGETSU/A hollow is the opposite of a human. Where they have a heart, we have masks, to cover our instincts. There’s a hunger that’s supposed to be gnawing away at my mind, a madness that makes me want to murder everything I hold dear. It wasn’t there. Where it should have been… was empty. /I/ was empty.From the moment I awoke, though, I had only one thought. “I will become King.”Because, somehow, I knew it would abate the emptiness inside of me.How could I think of anything else? After all, I, who was supposed to be a predator, could not tolerate being a horse. Not to someone who would inevitably reject me.But when I met /him/, there wasn’t fear. Or hate. Merely, all he wanted to know was more about me. Naturally I could not understand this, nor would I be allowed to. So I tried to frighten him away.But, when that hollow bait was used, when my instincts allowed me to surge to the surface.I had my chance. If I could kill him, I could be free. I could be /whole/. But, when I fought him…The emptiness went away. As he learned from me, I slowly felt myself fill up. When I was with this person, when he relied on me, on my power, I found myself changing. To me, this person who should disappear, I wanted to keep around.So, I learned hate. Hate for the things that would hurt him, for the collar on me that would betray him. >(1/2)
>>26425748Well at least it'd be easier to dye...
>>26425752And I was not to be denied. I forced to collar to do as I wished, to help him. To save the people he wants saved, I made it use its ‘shadow.’ When he needed to protect him, I made give it give him its ‘blood.’ I will see the collar broken before it can lay one finger on him.When his inner world weeps, I can only feel his sorrow. When its sunny, I can feel his joy. And, from him, I found my own heart.So, why would I not want to have my own name?Why should he be able to use /my/ name?My name is to be used for protecting him, not to make him hurt.So, naturally, I started to grow stronger for his sake.And I will kill anything that hurts him. Because, he is the one I want to protect.More than anything.So, even though my heart leaps at his words…There is only one course of action I can take…“Ichigo, what you want to protect is not what /I/ want to protect.”Be safe, Ichigo.I will protect you./INTERLUDE ZANGETSU END//Resuming in a moment/
...Man so on top of we still haven't rescued Momo yet, have no idea what Aizen's plans are, or what the fuck Muramasa wants, and the Soukyoku may break free any minute now, not to mention whatever Senna's deal is, now we have the two personifications of our powers in a fight to the death with dubious stakes?
>>26425748>give no fucks because you have the Girlpile>>26425759If we dye it, we dye it back to that "Japanese guy who bleached his hair" shade of orange.
>>26425765Momo's with us, we're just in a full nelson at the moment
>>26425752daww he learned to give a shit
>>26425763That's almost romantic.Holy shit.
>>26425763>And, from him, I found my own heart.>my own heart>THE HEARTKUBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>26425763FUCKING ZANGETSU YOU ARE THE MOST BRO THING EVER GOD I LOVE YOUDESTROY HIM
>>26425748>>Hair Turns White>>Realize this is going to earn you even more shit at school than the Orange hair ever did.Nah, we just need to dress in trenchcoats with BELTS and have everyone fawn over us.
>>26425752>>26425763Did...did he go gay/yandere for us?But seriously, that was touching.
>>26425809It must be a trenchcoat MADE of belts!
>>26425809NAh, just wear the suit. THen all the girls get wet over us.
>>26425752>>26425763Oh, we're saving you buddy. We're busting out of Harribel's pin, and we are saving you
>>26425763Have you ever wanted to kill something so hard you grew to love it instead?
>>26425763Damn, I really wish Zangetsu was a woman. That shit is fucking deep.
>>26425763We are the King.The King of love and friendship.We are strongest.
>>26425763My chest is swelling in unholy glee, I want our Hollowbro- no, I want Zangetsu to WIN. We will stand together atop the bodies of all those that would dare to harm our own. We will stand shoulder to shoulder on the battlefield and dare our enemies to dethrone us.Get some bitches.
>>26425763Okay, Zangetsu is officially "Bro" from now on.>>26425792We're brothers. Forged in flames and forever bound together.
>>26425833Eh, ask him if he thinks he can win or if this is some vague sacrificial gesture.
>>26425763...INB4 ZangetsuXichigo ship.
Well. Those are some interesting perks in the pastebin...
>>26425842>after we kick Aizen's ass we make him say"This world is made of... LOVE AND PEACE!"
>>26425763so thats why his exp is 9999/10000 we forged a bond of bros with our hollow.
>>26425763We need to break free and fucking help him. Christ, he deserves more heart.
>>26425850>Crit Master IIIOooooh yeah
>ZANGETSU, I'M THE KING, YOU'RE THE HORSE. HORSES CAN'T GO TO WAR ON THEIR OWN, THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY FUCKING SENSE!
>>26425752>>26425763Go Get Em, Partner.
>>26425854And to cap it off you used the mangafox image.Bravo. Bravo.
>>26425823>>26425849>Implying those are bad things
>>26425752>>26425763This seems rather... final.
>>26425874Have to say something about 'riding' him too.
>>26425849Do we get to have victory sex on old man genocides luscious beard?
>>26425866totally agree anon let's be a fucking awesome king to our brotastic horse."We fight better as a team partner"
>>26425897Yeah but the thing is he can't protect us if he's dead.
>>26425825Got you covered.Source is Amnesia, the adaptation of the VN by the same name.>>26425827...that could work as well.>>26425905>>26425890>>26425849>>26425823[fujoshi intensifies]

"So, Ichigo, what you're telling me is you can manifest your sword, which is a part of your soul and looks exactly like you, into the real world at will?""Um...yes? What are you getting at... HIME NO STOP PLEASE DON'T EVEN THINK IT.""Too late Ichigo! Its already factored into my calculations!"
>>26425919>"Ichigo. I have beaten your inner hollow and Zanpakuto. /I/ will be your dominant f-">silences via decapitation
>>26425931The question is can Momo manifest Homo into the real world?
>>26425923> dat imageThis is worse than JoJo and Bleach combined.
>>26425954orihime also needs to factor that into her calculations
>>26425954Not until she's approaching Bankai.
>>26425956>worse than JoJoThat makes it sound like JoJo is a negative thing.I hope that isn't what you're implying.
>>26425954Doubtful, her inner hollow is a hollow, unlike our Zangetsu.
>Wants to risk sacrifice to protect what he cares about.>introspective with no background events.Guys.... Hichigo became Canon Ichigo.
>>26425980Even then probably not, because Homo isn't a Zanpakuto like Zangetsu, she's just a Hollow.Momo would only be able to manifest Tobiume.For that matter we probably wouldn't WANT her manifested, because she's a straight-up Hollow. She doesn't need to be off the leash.
I am a horrible person.
You struggle in Harribel’s arms as the two fight. Sword clashing against sword, seemingly evenly matched. Again and again, as you’re forced to watch. Zangetsu’s form growing more and more frenzied, as he tries to keep the Old Man on the defensive. However, the Old Man is strong and not to be denied. He easily counters and parries every blow. Before long, even though he shouldn’t, Zangetsu takes on a different form. Large and Lizard-like, he attacks more animalistic ally, but he only continues to get cut down.You stare in horror as the old man shoves what you’ve known as ‘Zangetsu’ into your hollow self’s chest, right through where the heart should be as it slumps. Satisfied, he pulls out his blade and starts making his way towards you.You see Harribel tense up, taking on a defensive posture, as the Old Man approaches. Before he halts, holding ‘Zangetsu.’ He gives you a regretful look. “I’m sorry, Ichigo, but this is the end…”As Harribel moves to intercept, he grabs her by the throat and throws her away, sending her slamming painfully into a far away wall. After he does so, the next action he takes is throwing the giant cleaver at you. You tense up, closing your eyes, but where there should be a feeling of pain to match the sound of impact, there’s nothing.Opening your eyes, you see the large, pale form of your hollow, of Zangetsu, intercept the blade using the only thing he could.Himself.You stare down at the collapsed form as the Old Man extends and arm, creating a large sword of energy.Below you, your hollow's body cracks more and draws still with a death rattle.>Actions?
>>26425956> worse> IMPLICATIONSAlso, EVERYONE in Amnesia is over-dressed, even the self-insert.>>26425992> spoilerWELP.
>>26426024SLAUGHTER the Old Bastard.
>>26426024Harribel you stupid bitch, why would you even do that? She really just got our soul mangled, she didn't do shit to protect us either.
>>26426024pause for a moment, then yell and proceed to beat the shit out of the Old Man with our fistsNo style, No witty jokes, no speeches, just pure fucking anger
>>26426024Grab energy sword in one hand, place hand on Zangetsu with the other?
>>26426024Idiot running off by yourself now that youre all fucked up can I help?

>>26426024CQnecksnap. Not even nice. Full on fucking Krav Maga the little shit.
>>26426024Guys...We have to become canon OrihimeIt is the only way to save him.
>>26426024I REJECT! HOLLOWBRO IS BEST BRO! GIVE HIM BACK YOU BASTARD!
>>26426024Beat him down then beat the answers out of him
>>26426024Pull both of them into us.
>>26426024Absorb Zangetsu's power if it looks like it won't come back to us using Quincy powers. Continue the fight against the Old Man after giving some last words to Zangetsu.
>>26426024Touch Zangetsu and try to summon him back into us?
>>26426067What? No I mean we just beat up Ken..>the next action he takes is throwing the giant cleaver at you. You tense up, closing your eyes, but where there should be a feeling of pain to match the sound of impact, there’s nothing.;_;
"Old man! You just killed my friend." We take the large cleaver from Zangetsu's body and raise it at him. "I'm sorry, but only I get to say when this ends."THEN ATTACK!
>>26426024I want to break down and cry, but we can't. We have to fight even though our strength has faded and abandoned us.... Guys I think I know what we have to do. We have to eat Zangetsu.
>>26426024Absorb Zangetsu if possible.Then stand up to face the Old Man.
>>26426024Lay hands upon Zangetsu, "Old Man Zangetsu...why...I haven't abandoned anyone I call friend...no...its that man. Isn't it. He made Captain Soi Fon's Zanpakuto attack her...and it isn't just us. Is it."Stand Tall, hold up our physical sword as I don't see us having lost it anywhere.Hold it foreward. Eyes full of resolve."Ban Kai"Then this.
>>26426024Avenge Hichibro. Charge that motherfucker.Make. Him. Pay.
>>26426024"I recall being asked to make a decision on what side I'd take. I forget the specifics of that conversation...."Make ready to attack the Old Man while motioning for Orihime to take care of Zangetsu."...But considering how much of a DICK you're being, I'd say I am decidedly NOT on your side!"
>>26426072..Can we even Swordception our own Sword?Is that a thing?Because damn, son, I don't know how it be, but it do sound kick ass.
>>26426024Fighting the Old Man won't do shit when he could wreck Zangetsu in seconds. Pull Zangetsu back into us and tell him he was being a fool like we used to. Proceed to either pull the Old Man back in too or have a majorly defensive fight against him while trying to get him to fucking stop.
>>26426024Take the sword from Zangetsu's chest, attempt to call him back to us.
>>26426024where is our Sword?OUR Sword. Ichigo's and Zangetsu's.We're not going down empty-handed, and we're not going down with Ywach's sword. We're using Zangetsu's.
G'night again...crashing, good luck bros, good luck
>>26426024Hug Zangetsu, attempting to reabsorb himTactical retreet
>>26426024Try to pull Zangetsu back into us before he bleeds to death, fucking idiot.We need his power if we want to not die horribly right now. We can't do jack with a broken Zanpakuto.
>>26426024"No more horses. No more kings.""Partners."Stand tall, look OMZ in the eyes, and let him know fear with one word."Bankai."
>>26426132...Yes.If we can do that, then yes.
>>26426132This.This. All the times every time.
>>26426043>>26426065>>26426090>>26426098Are you guys really this revenge-crazed? It's doubtful the Old Man just suddenly decided to fight us early and Zangetsu is the one who pushed for fighting the Old Man by himself.
>>26426132>>26426096...You don't have Bankai.>But seems like people want to attack the old man or try or help Zangetsu?>Roll me 1d20!
>>26426144The thing is that the Old Man isn't a zanpaktou spirit, and is way too remorseful in general to be under Muramasa's control.
>>26426024"Why?"Kneel down by Zangetsu and grab his hand or put our hand over his heart and try and salvage something out of this fight. Grab OMZ's sword if he makes a move but otherwise, he has until Zangetsu is gone to either explain himself or give up. If he doesn't, full rampage, pulling on anything we can still use.
Rolled 11>>26426152Help Zangetsu!
>>26426144Beating him breaks the mind-control though.So we need to put everything we can into bringing him down so that we can stand together.
Rolled 6>>26426152And there it is. The consequences of the deal...
Rolled 13>>26426152No matter what; we save him.Retreat and regroup.
Rolled 14>>26426152Help Zangetsu, or at least call him back into us.
>>26426156Bring Zangetsu home.
>>26426159>pulling on anything we can still useWhich is nothing but Quincy powers which he will promptly turn off.
Rolled 14>>26426152"Old Man...TAKE THIS ! OUR LOVE, OUR ANGER, AND ALL OF OUR SORROW!GETSUGA TENSHOU!"
>>26426024Eat/absorb/return Zangetsu after admonishing him for being like we were. Attempt bankai because this fight doesn't look like it'll end unless Ishida can stop the white cloaked guy. If bankai fails, keep fighting him with anything .
>>26426152Help Zangetsu.As much as I want to rip the Old Man into tiny little pieces, it was Zangetsu's idiot choice to try to 1v1 him for no damn reason.Shit, its like he didn't even listen to our speeches about TEAM SPIRIT.
>>26426165Are you forgetting that the reason Ichigo had Bankai when rescuing Rukia was thanks to Yorichi's dummy training? Which we haven't had yet in this quest?
>>26426152Help/aborb/eat/return Zangetsu while telling him how much of an idiot he is and prepare to fight the Old Man. Hopefully he'll give us a free action.
>>26426198Plus he didn't really get that his whole idea was kind of inherently flawed.
>>26426152Since when were you under the impression we didn't have Bankai?
>>26426198Or his own speeches about not going it alone.
>>26426180Doesn't matter. We're the kind of guy who keeps fighting for what we believe in, even if it won't make enough of a difference. Didn't you see the first thread or most of the rest? Dying to the incarnation of our shady heritage and self-doubt is pretty fitting at this point unless our friends step in to save us.
Its been a hell of a month partner... see you around the bend.
>>26426201No, but we've hit the "manifestation" condition, which is the regular way to get Bankai.Basically, if we get Zangetsu to share our strength properly now, Bankai happens.
>>26426198Fighting yourself is dumb, destroying a part of your soul might just kill you. Zangetsu was being an idiot and so is the Old Man if he isn't being Muramasa'd.
>>26426156we fucking help Zangetsu.
>>26426201I meant how Zangetsu is now dead or dying by trying to solo OMZ. I can understand the confusion though, apologies.
We can't fight. We need to extract, withdraw and then regroup.
>>26426225>first threadWe're also growing up and knowing when to retreat after we pick up the wounded or save the dead.
>>26426253As unfortunate as it sounds, that's probably a good idea.Pretty sure the Old Man knows how to Vollstandig.
Total troll option but maybe it's time to mask up and go all cero GAU-8 on OMZ's ass.
>Help Zangetsu>19You shake his lumbering form.“Zangetsu?”It’s still. You try to pull on him, heal him, any thing.But there’s nothing.Nothing you can do. You dodge out of the way of the Old Man’s swing and tug on Zangetsu’s body. “C’mon, Zangetsu!”The old man’s eyes narrow as he increases his speed and swings at you. Before you can dodge or he can connect, the back of Zangetsu breaks open with a horrendous crack as a thing arm shoots out, grabbing the Old Man’s wrist.Rising fram the shattering frame of Zangetsu is something new. It looks no bigger than you, with pale white skin and markings all over its flesh. However, the mask is different. Like the horned skull of a demon, it covers the entire head as long orange hair falls down its back.The old man quickly jerks his hand free as its head follows it, yellow eyes narrowing as it extends its hand, its Zanpakuto flying into it as it slowly stalks towards the old man.It was brief, but you could have sworn it said something.“…tect you….”As it nears the old man, his eyes narrow as shadows engulf his form, revealing a smaller, hooded being, who reaches out as the normal Zangetsu flies into its hand.You stare at the two forms, not truly understanding what is happening right now.But, you have to do /something/.>Actions?>paste bin updated
>>26426291He could probably just absorb them or tank them.
>And before the end of the arc, you will know the sting of betrayal as you have never known before>A life will be saved, another forfeit>Bleach Quest 39: Zangetsu vs. Zangetsu: From the Heart
>Got to call ti here, actually>will be back later.Fro now...BLEACH QUEST 39...ON HOLD.
>>26426301>>26426313Jump into the damn fight and help Zangetsu.We know how to do one thing, and that is kick ass. Lets fucking do this.
>>26426313Shouldn't it be the same monochrome form he had when "Tensa Zangetsu" called on him?
>>26426301We should realize that this some sort of hollow evolution and that the Old Man is doing some of his stuff too. Zangetsu seems barely aware so he might attack us if he forgets "Have to protect you...".I honestly don't know what do with a fight at this level.
>>26426301>updated: What changed? Maybe adding a * next to new stuff for the night?"Hey what about all that fight as one talk? Where you just bullshitting me?! I'm not going to let you fight alone. Not any more. Not ever again.""I don't know what that guy's done to you Old Man, but it needs to end here and now.">Ready ourselves; CQC, Sword, Rocks, fucking anything
>>26426301>paste bin updatedAnother Rank for Hollow? Dayum, back to the grind.>Actions?This fight is not something we should get in the middle of. It might get pretty indiscriminate.Step back for now; secure Momo, get a sit-rep from Nel and do a head count.
>>26426301>Full-Hollow modevs>"Tensa Zangetsu" a.k.a. Young Man YhwachThis is just getting stupid.
>>26426339He just had a bull mask then, not the full hollowfied form.
>>26426313shouldn't it be this?
>>26426342This seems good. No raging against the Old Man and no letting Zangetsu fight on his own when we don't know what powers the Old Man has. And holding back probably won't do anything since Soi Fon has probably seen everything.
Hey Cosgrove, any chance for a brief interlude from our captive audience?
>>26426353Thats Bankai. He's still in Shikai, just apparently with whatever the bull horns signify as well.He may have figured out Resureccion on accident.
>>26426301...Yeah no, let's just beat the shit out of Muramasa until he stops controlling the Young Man, or at least see if that's what's happening.
>>26426350I really just want us to Leave with Everyone, but that's not likely to happen any time soon.Christ this is a clusterfuck.
>No Idea What To Do Here.>Just Gonna Drop Some Art Instead.
>>26426350On the bright side, if we kill the Old Man then we might actually get a Bankai that isn't just GO FAST GOTTA SWORD FASTER.
>>26426376Well I think the good news is that I'm pretty sure what's happening is just as bewildering to us as it is to Muramasa.If Aizen's watching, even he might be confused.
>>26426349We should really level Quincy after this if we still can because our hollow powers are up pretty high now and our Shinigami stuff other than Kido seems good. Nabbing Ransotengai along with whatever else would be handy.
>>26426350>This is just getting stupid.It's Bleach, what did you expect?>>26426342Someone's going to call us stupid for all this, but ya ok.
>>26426392> KidoWe should really learn some. Perhaps with a focus on binding and sealing spells simply to mess with dad's attempts at messing with us.
>>26426342Eh, first we should shunpo over to Muramasa, CQC him into a headlock, and ask him if he's the one controlling YMZ, and if so, make him stop because what's happening right now is really just stalling things for everyone.
>>26426406I would choose Kido if we had a day or two of free time to actually learn some spells and if we could instantly boost it to levels where we can to some silently. But that's doubtful and why I want Quincy abilities, I don't see why we can't get some Ginto and just set them to explode instead of over complicated traps.
>>26426301I feel like the dramatically appropriate thing to do would be to get between Zangetsu and "Zangetsu".Only "Zangetsu" currently wants to kill us so...
>>26426425Unohana's healing kido.
>Ok, so someone broke the prisoner out of the tower>Right about the same time Zaraki went full power, only to immediately be taken down.>And then the Sokyoku went rogue, and promptly disappeared>All our Zanpakutos are going berserk>For some reason a random Quincy is fighting the guy fucking with the Zanpakutos >Yhwach is here, but not really, maybe>And he's fighting a Hollow which is also a Zanpakuto, but he's also using the same Zanpakuto, I don't even know whats going on there>I'm getting too old for this shit
>>26426428>dramatically appropriatePlease get out. Did you not watch/read the parts in canon where full hollow meant barely or not self-aware? Jumping in front of a rabid dog fighting someone who seems to want us dead for whatever reason is ridiculously dumb.
>>26426301"No. No more fighting on your own. Zangetsu, whatever both of you dumb punks want to call yourselves, stop this! You both crossed lines, and both of you have explaining to do, but you're not pulling this crap anymore. This fight ends here and now, even if I have to put a stop to it myself."
>>26426448>He sighs and mutters to himself "I guess it's a nice afternoon for a walk..."
>>26426425>get some Ginto and just set them to explode instead of over complicated traps.Preferable and realistic.>I would choose Kido if we had a day or two of free time to actually learn some spells and if we could instantly boost it to levels where we can to some silently. I don't think we're good enough for that, I fear. Ichigo is smart, but it seems to require stupidly high WIS and INT to get this system to do anything but blow you the fuck up. We should ask our aunt rather than Momo for advice on this, assuming we even know she can do it.
>>26426454I said dramatically appropriate, not smart.And pointed out in the next line that it wouldn't work.I'm just saying that I have no idea what the right course of action is here, since the cliche is definitely not functional.
>>26426448I really want some interludes for this stuff, especially if we get one when Toshiro first realizes this whole fucking mess started with us. His expression would be amazing.
>>26426454And you're using meta-reasoning to decide an important character moment. You get out, or come up with something better that makes sense in character.
>>26426458Eh, neither of them are in a state to listen to us right now.I'd say that force Muramasa to retreat is a good start.
>>26426465Kido is like Haskell.Quincy Magic is Ruby on Rails.
>>26426474>"Do you always fuck up everything everywhere you go?!">Don't move, just our eyes on him>I can crush you under the weight of my spiritual pressure... little snowman. Go home.
>>26426486Would it be in-character to just kind of get annoyed at this point?Because it feels like it stopped being dramatic and started getting silly.
>>26426497I don't think we can, considering our spiritual pressure is beating the shit out of each other over yonder.
>>26426465Yeah, I think we should just dump a bit of xp in Kido whenever we have some to /spare/ and wait the long time it takes to cast things expertly.While remembering to do that, just level normally with some balance.
>>26426487Yeah, it would be better to go after him, but then someone needs to stop them from killing each other when we know so little about the situation, and in character, there isn't anyone we would ask to step into a fight that essentially between parts of ourself.
>>26426486>meta-reasoning>realizing that a Zangetsu that can barely speak is probably not very nicePick one
>>26426527That's a good point; he's most likely very close to berserk mode and losing any and all reasoning.
>>26426486how about try to figure out whats going on fail then go check on everyone and try to get people away from the danger zone that is zangetsu vs the old man because it is dangerous as fuck for our friends right now and Tobiume might still be trying to kill our girlfriend we just got back?
>>26426548Yeah or at least get Momo's collar off so she can fight Tobiume.
>What's going on?>Why is the old man outside?>Who's this white guy and his girl?>Why is my hollow acting all weird?>What was that attack?>What are these forms?>Eh fuck it, lets just hit things
>>26426555we do that and suddenly Homo decides she wants to join the party.meanwhile bitchy ninja is trying to figure out just what the fuck is going on.
>>26426548Frankly, Tobiume ain't shit.Any one of the Tres could wreck her, probably without even bothering to use Resureccion.She's got Momo's Zanpakuto skills, but not her Kido (which is where she specializes) or her Hollow. She's pretty weaksauce.>>26426555Homo then decides she wants a piece of the action, and since she can't just manifest like Zangetsu, she takes over Momo instead. Bad move.
>>26426569>Other soul reapers are completely lost>Kenny wakes up>Sees hollow-go and quincy king fighting>Rushes in without a second thought
>>26426586>>26426569I thought Hollow Momo is still beaten, fair and square?
>>26426465low-level kido works well as a supplement to attack strength, stuff like lightning shot and the binding are low-level stuff. if we could do that, incant-less, itd give us speedy range attacks while still having our sword in hand
You know, I was thinking of listening to the Bleach OST while reading this, but now that we're at Zangetsu vs Ywach, all I can hear is It Has To Be This Way.And it makes me sad how fitting it is.
>"...You know, when I drugged Momo with that special tea, I was kinda hoping she'd rip the shit out of Ichigo, or he'd kill her, and he'd be a wanted man, or something.>What I DIDN'T have in mind, though, was him barging into Soul Society, bringing along some converted Arrancar and some friends, getting into a fight with 11th's captain, and then suddenly everyone's swords starts rebelling, only to find out he has TWO sword spirits, the Hollow one being the real one apparently, with the old man being a fake, I don't even know, and now they're duking it out! Christ, how the fuck am I supposed to salvage this shit heap?!">"...I don't know how, but I'm pretty sure this is all your fault, Aizen."
>>26426586she can throw a shitload fireballs like its nothing though, which shouldnt be underestimated
...I'm kind of suspecting the only way out of this is to somehow get between the two, grab both Zangetsu and "Tensa Zangetsu"'s wrists and make them stab each other at the same time.Though I'm not sure if that would allow us to get Bankai, or destroy our own powers.
>>26426601She isn't anything like our hollow m8. Ours is a zanpaktou with THE HEART.
>>26426543We just heard him say something after coming back from death in a new form that looks less bestial. until we see him fight or sense something off, we aren't just jumping straight to he's gone full berserk.>>26426548Better, but we just freaked out over seeing one of them die in front of us. We aren't staying out of it until we realize we can't do anything and give up, switching to damage control until we think of a better solution.
>>26426610I would be so interested to see Aizen's actual thought process right now.
>>26426618No, they have to pierce through us so their blades are going all the way through and into each other.Then we complete fusion
>>26426620Yeah but she is presumably like the Visored's hollows.By which I mean subdued.I mean the fat guy barely even uses his Zanpaktou.
>>26426610>tapped on the shoulder>"Not now Gin">"That wasn't me.">He turns around; an androgynous figure in long flowing white robes and long white hair holding a large mirror. It drops its sword with a smile.
>>26426637What, no.We just want Bankai, not the Final Getsuga Tenshou (which is totally Letz Stil, I mean he even had the fucking glove).
>>26426646I was joking.
>>26426642>In that second the sword was dropped, before it hit the floor, Aizen glares balefully at the sky, giving it the finger, as if to say "Fuck you God. Fuck you.">Rape, physical, metaphysical, and metaphorical ensues.
Soi fon is going to be pissed when she realises just how much she's failed to notice>5 arrancar>2 vizards, 1 of which she tried to recruit>A plethora of humans>Former bearer of the super happy funtime stone>"I am the worst secret police chief..."
>>26426637I could only think of this. I really hope that's not the case.
>>26426664Eh, I'm pretty sure if it was our Inner World, that move would be appropriately symbolic and effective, so.
>>26426497>not just flaring our Spiritual Pressure and saying "You know nothing, Jon snow... But yes, things tend to get crazy wherever I go these days."
>>26426618Actually wait no that wouldn't work.We need to wait for them both to use Deadly Darts at the same time.THEN we grab both Zangetsus, and get to stabbing.
>>26426693>Laugh maniacally>Hold them like Cervantes>"FINALLY! I can try the double sword technique."
>>26426672>she goes off to mope>accidently wanders into yoriuchi whos off to get closer to see what the shits going on>"you know what, just fuck today"
Has the Cosgrove abandoned us?I wouldn't blame him. It's almost 6:30AM
>kenpachi got healed supposedly>hes gonna wake up to quite literally the quincy king and ichigos zanpakuto fighting each other>soi fon and her zanpakuto seem to be just sitting there going what the shit>random assclown with a fur coatguys what happens with kenpachi decides to do stuff?
>>26426724His mind goes blank, his eyes wide, and his boner is set to maximum.Then he does what he always does and stabs everything to death.
>>26426672>"Lady, considering how fucking crazy this day has been, I don't think anyone will blame you for this one. Except for the 46, then again fuck them, they're assholes."
>>26426325>Bleach Quest 39 (part 1)>THE ONE WHERE NOTHING HAPPENS AND THE ROLLS DON'T MATTER
>>26426724>Point at Old Man Dickgetsu>"HE'S THE STRONGEST AND ALSO BAD">Everything went better than expected
well, everyone, I think this is about it for me.It's late, I need sleep, and I haven't gotten much drawing done tonight anyway.See you all tomorrow.....or...this evening?
>>26426724he is going to be like a little kid in a candy store but with just a touch more bloodshed.
>>26426301can we check if bel is okay then join in the fight?
>>26426733Where we're going, we won't need brakes
>>26426749>>26426741>>26426733>>26426729so question is will after this mess kenpachi will argue like fuck to drag us automatically under his squad so we can fight him for the rest of eternity or not?
>>26426756This should be a thing that we do.She just got thrown into a wall. Hard. I mean, I know that shouldn't hurt her, but it was OMZ that did it.
>>26426756If she's okay, can we lecture her for listening to the part of our power that's the manifestation of reckless behavior?
>>26426763>Knocks Ikkaku down to the empty 4th seat>Puts us as an honorary member in 3rd>Dares people to question him
So now that this thread never really got to serve its purpose, I think it'd be a good time to just chitchat about the quest.
>>26426782this may potentially be the greatest thing ever, we'd somehow skip the temp shinigami thing and end up to do whatever the shit.
>>26426773>>26426756She's a Vasto level Arrancar. Being thrown into a wall isn't going to hurt her, regardless of her velocity. >>26426775Yes. Yes we can."Hey Harribel, Ichigo is in danger! LETS ALL ABANDON THE CHAIN OF COMMAND AND DO WHATEVER WE FUCKING FEEL LIKE, SOUND GOOD?"But then we hug her, because we really can't stay mad at our friends.
>>26426763we beat him with just a third of our power he can't do shit. inb4 we just got KEN-FUCKING-PACHI as yet another harem member whether we like it or not. also Hallibel only likes us for our sword.
>>26426448for over a thousand years old, he thought he should have seen everything
>>26426798>Yumichika challenges us for the 3rd Seat because 3 is the most aesthetically pleasing number, and he can now get it without having to fight Ikkaku
>>26426763THAT WASN'T THE DEAL.
>>26426805>implying we beat her>implying the one in control isnt our hollow
>>26426805This. Chain of command shouldn't be ignored for something so stupid. She also wouldn't be hurt from hitting a wall.>>26426809You realize Kenpachi didn't go all out, right? He had all his spirit power for a few seconds, then we took him out before he could two hand or use actual skill.
>>26426816>We berserker smile>You sure you're not that attached to that pretty face of yours?and then he ODs on a fraction of our Spirit Pressure
>>26426818I'd be worried about that if Zangetsu wasn't an absolute bro.
>>26426809>>26426817>implying we arn't gonna get dragged in front of old man genocide after this mess>implying kenpachi won't use this entirely as a workaround so he actually has a sparring buddy to fight whenever the fuck.i can actually see this happen depending on how badly we fuck up ultimately getting out of here.
>>26426818You forget that Zangetsu is our bro and hasn't challenged our authority once.That logic doesn't track.>>26426816Pfffhahahaha.I'd like to see him try.
>>26426831>Yumichika is now after our dick too
>>26426835>"The world changes... people change... I changed. But war? War never changes Ichigo. Don't forget that... Final.... Final Getsuga Tensho.">"See you around partner... maybe next time."
>>26426813He was not prepared.
>>26426842>You forget that Zangetsu is our bro and hasn't challenged our authority once.He did that twice and we Nat 20'd him both times.On the first die cast.
>>26426860Aside from the Hollow Bait incident (where we established Dominance), the only time we fought him was when OMZ pitched a fit and locked us out of our Inner World, right?I thought he hadn't tried anything since we unlocked our Mask.
>>26426842>>26426860to be fair on his end, he seems to have actually learned we arn't a complete and utter assclown.and thus we earned his respect through our sheer stupidity all quest.i'm still rocking the idea that soi on and zaraki decide instead of wasting the idiot that is ichigo once everyone figures out what the fuck they decide to fight over who gets him as a minion in their squad.
"You should probably leave Ichigo... I don't want to spoil your Bankai for you..."also he needs a 10... no 20 gallon hat for all the times he says partner
>>26426787Eh. Why not?On that note, is Birdman still here? Was hopefully gonna bounce back ideas for the HoMo mask last thread, but shit got serious real fast.----------------------->Geisha's makeup in designHmm... wanna try trimming the purple eyeliner? Make it thinner and put it at just the edge of the eyes?Then put oval dots where the eyebrows should be, instead of the "V-shaped" ridge.It'll look like Ikkaku's though... so the effect might not be the desired one.---------------------------I'm with you in leaving the mouth for now, seems hard to conceptualize. Sorry if this is pretty much the only way I can help.I swear to God though that Cosgrove provided a reference pic for the mask, but for the life of me, I just couldn't find it.Even after combing through Threads 13-18.5 and the recap thread.And I know one draw-anon made a mask concept too with horns like the release form of Tobiume.
>>26426882Maybe we should start calling him Hoss in return.
>>26426870He hasn't because we're dominant. And now because we've redefined his very existence. Before his instinct was kill and fight. Now is is love and protect.
I just realised that back in Hueco Mundo when we tried to Jinzan after snorting hogyoku the disruption in our inner world was Zangetsu with all the power he had just gained trying to kill the old man before he tried any of this shit.
Ok it's almost 7 AM what the shit.Time for bed. I don't want to wake up at 2PM again...Although it did make waiting for Bleach Quest shorter...Night... morning guys.Friendly reminder that we may need to make a tactical retreat or to force Old Man and Creeper Coat to do that.
>>26426910What?Time to hit the archives I guess.I can't wait to form an uneasy alliance with the rest of the Soul Reapers then team up with Whitey and double team the little shit to death AND his pet Old Man.
>>26426871>"He was able to beat me">"A prodigy of hand to hand combat, and misdirection">"I must have him!">Constantly having to escape ambushes by the 2nd and 11th division, both trying to drag us of to their barracks And thus was soul society moved further up the list of places best to avoid
>>26426910so maybe perhaps since hogyoku happened and we simply wanted to make sense of what the fuck is going on as our wish, it kind of made hichigo into canon ichigo so that someones there that actually makes sense there.it explains the fill with something and make hims top being empty thingy.
>>26426937oh god damnit that means we may at some point end up friends and on a first name basis with 2nd AND 11th squadlike every week or so its we run into one of the groups and basically talk on a casual basis.
>>26426938>We more or less become Canon Hichigo lite>Our Hollow/ Zanpakuto (Hichigo/ Zangetsu) becomes Canon IchigoThat's good news. That means he'll keep moving forward... he'll never give up. He won't lose, because he can't. Not while there's something he has to protect.eager for that true Zanpakuto release
Even if we lose our Quincy powers, we should be pretty close to being able to learn Heirro thanks to our Hollow powerup, so the loss of Blut won't hurt that badly.Losing Hirenkyaku will suck though, because it means that once again we won't be able to go fast in our meat suit. Ah well, don't need to go fast when you know the basics of CQC.
>>264269689 to 10 Ishida feels great shame at being a Quincy after this or just flat out goes into Batarian style self exile.
>>26426960>school gets a new transfer student."Hello my name is Ken"
>>26426966Huh that makes me thinkIf OMZ was holding back our shinigami powers form the very begining, could he be the reason our shikai doesn't look complete?
>>26426968its like people forgot how it works with muramasa, we don't actually lose the powers, its more like a mental block that we need to overcome and beat the shit outta his phantoms when he pulls shit like this.however i'm not exactly sure how the flying fuck hichigo will work if he gets fucked up and killed by OMZ
>>26426991No; he's the gym teacher. He took the last ones place. He hasen't been seen since the new guy took over though... weird.
>>26426934And in the confusion, everyone completely forgets about Aizen.Shit.
>>26426917Ever fallen asleep during BQ or another one and woken up to see it still running?
>>26426993Supposed to link to>>26426968
>>26426999>he starts forcing random students who look strong to join the Kendo club
>>26427001Too bad for him that there's no way for him to get Urahara's Plotrock anymore.
>>26426991>>26426999oh god, either stuation sounds hilarious cause in one, trying to imagine kenpachi trying to fake being a teen may be the funniest thing ever conceived, but on the otherhand, him trying to explain to soul society why hes a gym teacher and fucking around with ichigo sounds like way to much fun.
>>26426996Science division can fix him as long as he doesnt die in bankai mode
>>26426993He IS the reason it's not complete.The blade we're using is more or less his own special weapon.He gave us a fake.If we boot him out for good... well the king an't gunna be happy, but the real Zangetsu might teach us our real release and form and our real Bankaiwhich Cosgrove can more or less make up
>>26427001waaaaaiiiit a second...wouldnt Kyoka Suigetsu be affected by muramasa too?
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Bleach%20Quest> dem scoresGuys... I'm proud.
>>26427001hes got the problem of his own zanpakuto is about to fuck him in the ass, literally metaphorically and mentally.
>>26427030see >>26426642Yes there is no way this won't eventually become a problem... unless Aizen was the one that allowed/ ordered Coat Creeper to enter /ss/
>>26426996I'm pretty sure Zangetsu is playing for keeps. He's fucking sick of that shitty old man freeloading in our inner world, and he wants him GONE.
>>26427026that involves giving mayuri zangestu.
>>26427021Unless he's already got it.Since when were you under the impression that we actually KILLED it?
>>26427046He took the only thing he actually had. His name. Then he was forced to share it. Then he learned that the one thing he actually cared about was to die at this mans hand one day. That day is now.He. will. not. lie. down.
>>26427058Not if we manage to get Urahara reinstated it doesn't.
>>26427070>>26427058>giving mayuri zangetsu>implying we won't be trying to figure out what the flying nigger dicks is with our sword>implying hes not gonna try dissecting the shit outta us so he can figure out what the craps with our sword>implying he wouldn't try to clone a horde of us.
i doubt cos will be coming back so i am going to hit the hay, if he does then...Good Luck!
So... Getsuga Tensho... always looked pretty Quincy to me since Ishida first showed up in the anime.It'll be interesting to see what, if any, changes come of this development.I never want this arc to end.
>>26427083>Implying he wont clone the fuck outta usImpossible, even the creator of mod souls couldn't do itBesides thats what our Eugenics program is for
>>26427094"Ok so with him gone... I can reform myself to whatever powers you need? What'll it be partner?">Cosgrove has us roll or pick our new zanpakuto release and bankaiI want to believe.
>>26427105i'm thinking bizarro superman to our superman to be honest.in other words, i'm fairly convinced he'd fuck it up but still be happy with the result.also in other news, when we inevitably have a kid, exactly how much MORE bullshit is he/she gonna be then us, cause jesus.
So it occurs to me that we're still talking as if Yamamoto is still up and walking around.More likely, he's already isolated himself in a barrier to prevent Muramasa from bamboozling his brain.
>>26427128Depends on who the mother is.
>>26427128Nah we were fine as a kid, That shit wont activate until its poked at.inb4 Child rescue arc
>>26426991and then soi fon gets in on it
>>26427134wait where the fuck was he during the zanpaktou rebelion arc?
>>26427094what shall we name this arc btw?
>>26427137Well, as candidates we've got:Orihime, the Fullbring reality warper of unfathomable theoretical powerMomo, the VisardAnd up to four possible Arrancar, assuming they're capable of reproduction.
>>26427137So there's the Reality-warping kid with Hime,The Vizard/Shinigami kid with Momo, Maybe a couple Arrancar kids with Bel/Nel/Appacci... I think we just started a new species.
>>26427156Probably hiding so that Soul Society wouldn't get burned to the ground.
>>26427161The Clusterfuck arc?
>>26427161Rise of tyrants arc
>>26427128>have a kid with over powered as fuck abilities>loses control, goes insane, turns bad or overly emotional>destroys the worldWe will probably be the Soul King by the time this is over. Having a kid who wants your throne is a bad idea.
>>26427156Chilling out in a cave, inside a barrier, so that Muramasa couldn't get him.Muramasa's entire plan revolved around tricking Ichigo into using a full-power Getsuga Tensho to break Yamamoto's barrier so he could pillage his memories and steal Ryujinjakka.Canon Ichigo is an idiot, so it worked.
>>26427183Which is why we raise him properly. And don't fuck up like 90% of Anime parents.
>>26427183we would just slap his shit and tell him to get himself together and that hes embarrising us
>>26427190Well, once he knew about Ichigo at least. His original plan was to hijack the captains into doing it, probably with Kido.He switched the focus to Ichigo after he figured out that he was both absolutely broken, and kinda dumb.
>>26427190and he just completely fucked that plan with our own zanpakutos beating the ever flying crap outta each other.
>>26427119unlimited Zangetsu works then he can be any power we may need all at once.
>>26427193>/tg/ raising a kid properly
>>26427183>We will probably be the Soul KingFuck that noise.All we want it to go back to our everyday life in Karakura with our massive pack of beautiful women. We ain't got time for that shit.
>>26427161Its all Aizen's fault arc.
Aizen's face this entire arc
>>26427142 inb4 this already is a child rescue arc cause Momo is preggers
>>26427155>Sudden influx of transfer students>The entirety of both the 2nd and 11th divisions>Both engaged in a cold war over who gets ichigo
>>26427211The chances of us becoming the Hueco Mundo literally is pretty high after Aizen's dead while becoming the new Genocide is high too since our locked power from OMZ makes us hella stronk. Becoming Quincy king is us over Ishida because we had Ywhach inside us.
>>26427238jesus christ how horrifying
>>26427238Cromartie High School: Bleach Edition
>>26427208>>26427193>>26427183>>26427128So she is gonna be the protag of BQ: Redux?
Rolled 19, 15, 9, 13, 7 = 63I wonder...
>>26427238only to be resolved with an agreement to have ichigo on certain days.after a week long dodgeball competition between 11th and 2nd squad resulting in blood shed and manly bonding.
>>26427238>suddenly we have some crazy unseated girl from Squad 11 following us everywhere and begging us to fight her
>>26427270"Please beat me and call me a whore, Kurosaki-sama!"And then Nel gets pissed that someone's edging in on her shtick.
>>26427248 >>26427254>Overtime this escalates and, the entirety of the gotei 13 has transferred so as to intervene>The school has yet to notice that anything is amiss>Ichigo has long since legged it to ghost mexico>Aizen staring at a deserted soul society>"I...don't know what to believe anymore"
>>26427284Think less "generic girl who likes to be abused" and more "Grey Fox with a Zanpakuto and tits."
>>26427288>Something is off about the new transfer student, but I juuuuust can't place it
>>26427295i picture his gigai is the fox from persona4 who has a kendo sword on his back
>>26427295maybe its because he is too handsome! yes that's got to be it!>>26427258along with her 28 half/full brothers and sisters ya.we should have an army that can outfight SS/HM and hell combined by then
>>26427295>people constantly come to him for help with their pets, but he's no good with animals
just a heads up we need pic related to join our group.
>>26426502There is something very Kubo about that second sentence that I think applies here.
>>26427412>her fullbring are tarot cards.yes i am somewhat impying something
>>26427288>A single student is spiritually aware enough to notice things>His face when
>>26427462Are you implying that at some point she will randomly be swept off by a plucky shonen action hero to another planet, where they'll fight the well-inentioned but needlessly extremist hordes of Sir Isaac Newton?
>>26427472THE SCHOOL IS OVERRUN WITH GHOST SAMURAI AND NINJA MASQUERADING AS STUDENTS!WHY WON'T ANYBODY BELIEVE ME?THEY'RE RIGHT OVER THERE, FIGHTING WITH SWORDS! DOES NOBODY ELSE SEE THIS?WHAT THE FUCK!
>>26427476only somewhatbut judging how cosgrove does things we will never know her power until its there.
>>26427505We World of Darkness now?>>26427360> 28Poor Momo/Orihime...
>>26427558imagine what ichi's future arrancar girls can pop up.
>>26427505THATS NOT A MAN, HE HAS A FOX'S HEAD! CANT YOU SEE THIS?!?AND WHY DO SOME PEOPLE HAVE BONE FRAGMENTS EMBEDDED IN THEM!OH GOD CHIZURO IS ONE OF THEM! SHE HAS YELLOW EYES! DON'T LET THEM TAKE ME! WHAT'S GOING ON, SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME! I NEED AN ADULT!
>>26426425What we SHOULD do is retreat like a motherfucker and cuddle Momo with Orihime.Of course, Ichigo's Split Selves are now fightan to the death, and lawd knows what kind of clusterfuck THAT is going to become.
>>26427589Which Arrancar girls?
>>>>26427642And then we accuse Nemu of being a robot
>>26426602>>26426513Agreed. Let's not try to get too high level but let's not go full 11th HURR HURR SWORD ONLY either.
>>26428098Plus some of the Utility spells are useful. Like the various divination and communication ones.Remember Byakuya is considered powerful because he mastered a good balance of Hoho, Zanpakuto and Kido.
Could we somehow channel power to zangetsu?Possibly using spirit sensing and jinzen?
So guys. What do we think in character is even going on now. We know this guy in white can do something with/too sword spirits, as it turned Captain Soi Fon's against her. OMZ warned us against the Sealed King, and we already suspected he was out Quincy Power...we never confirmed and let the matter rest. Whatever is going on here, OMZ is being used as a puppet and is likely not our true enemy in this instance. Now, with all our allies gathered, we need to work together. We need to tell the tres to make sure that Harribel is okay. We need to get back into the fray. "Keigo, run interference!" Is a good starting point.
>>26428953Forgot my name, morning folks.
>>26427119I doubt Cosgrove would do this, fun though it may be.Although mayve, just maybe he'll eat the Old Man and that guy in the white coat and gain their powers for himself.Perhaps that's Zangetsus true power after all.
>>26429051Cosgrove said several threads ago that we might not get Ichigo's canon Bankai, it wholly depended on us.
>>26429075Now... that IS interesting.Especially since I'm pretty damn sure it was just a ruse by OMZ anyway since all it did was just cut off our Riatsu bleed off and cycle it back into us like Quincy's are want to do.
>>26429075With our Zanpakuto at full and our Hollow near another evolution, this has me VERY hyped.In any case; in before we tacti-cool retreat and OM'z' pushes in Muramasa's shit and tries to get the war stated my himself, forcing Muramasa to do his bidding.
>>26428953>>26428975>make sure that Harribel is okayAre you joking or is this just you being a namefag? Captain level beings are tossed /through/ buildings and walls casually while being unscathed.You want to check if she is hurt after being thrown against a wall like nuisance? The throw wasn't even meant to kill, she was just in the way.
Really hoping Cosgrove gives us a little 'interlude' to let us know what's going on with the collection of people that have crowded around to watch us.It feels weird only focusing on us when there's so much happening around us.
Uhhh, if we kill OMZ, do we still qualify for Quincy arrow repowering?
>>26429326I'd want some recap, if noone has any problems with it.>Ron Paul: the arc
>>26429218No, it was wanting to make sure our friend was okay.Why do we seem incapable of casual disagreement sometimes?
>>26429333That's a good question."alive" he can just turn off our Quincy powers, but "dead"? I don't know... I think we still might have access to them, although they might not be as refined any more.After all he constantly wanted us to shy away from those kinds of powers anyway.
>>26429370No, I guess he's the personification and source of them.I guess every quincy has YHWH inside him.
>>26429183Remember, being able to manifest is a sign if being close to Bankai, I completely forgot that earlier when I suggested we try to do it.We may have Ichigo go through proper Bankai training instead of Urahara's training doll. I wonder what it will turn out like? Though a heavily internalized transformation with different special powers would be awesome.Also; at some point during all this I imagine Soi Fon demanding to know "What the hell we are, over who the hell we are" if that is the case after this skirmish is broken, we should answer, "Can I get back to you on that once *I* know what I am. It's gotten to the point where I'm not sure whether any one descriptor captures the whole of it. Hell, I'm exactly not sure if I'm still alive or not."
>>26429424And then we circle back to the fullbringer theory again.I'm wondering if he just manifested in us because we somehow are a soul reaper (technically we should just be a vasto lorde since we never had reaper powers transfered to us) and that's something they do, or if every Quincy has the capacity to see or interact with those manifestations if he is indeed in all of them.Personally I think the spirit thing is just a special case with us.
>>26429436We can shorten that to: "Your guess is as good as mine at this point."And stoop getting me excited about Bankai's and Shikais. Zangetsu has to survive this whole ordeal first; if the old man kills him... remember that it's for good.
