The rumor is that Oda-sama has become so sick that he had to be hospitalized, so do have him in your prayers, or whatever is it you do. So no One Piece most likely for two weeks.
Chapter 537: Everything but the Rain Op.10 ‘Prinz von Licht’
Rightly so, knowing the fact that Masaki is a powerful Quincy it makes the conditions around her deaths a bit suspicious. Ishinn draws back to the ‘Blut vene’ ability. The armor ability. Ichigo displayed that ability when struck by Juha Bach.
Before he does onwards, he pretty much admits how he feels. He says: “It wasnt that I couldn’t save. It was I didn’t save her.” Even without his power he felt Masaki and Grand Fisher. He didn’t bother going because he knew Grand Fisher would be no problem for Masaki.
But, instead of beating him, she died on that encounter with the hollow.
Ishinn then ask Ichigo if he ever heard Uryuu say anything about his mother. Ishinn confirms that Uryuu’s mother is in fact Katagiri like I guess last time out. She collapsed on the same day as Masaki, nine years ago. She died three months later.
Ichigo asks the most prudent question. What the hell happened on that day.
I am not sure what it translates too in English, but is a ritual. A ‘Holy Selection’ of Quincy carried out by Yuha Bach I guess. As Ishinn explained it there was a legend of a sealed king(yuha bach). In the tales of that it took the King 900 years to regain his hearbeat. 90 years to regain his reason and 9 more to regain his power.
In order to get his power back Yuha Bach picked what he deemed as ‘impure’ quincies. and took their power for his own. So Katagiri was only a half-blood and her powers were pulled away from her. Apperently her body was already weak and thus the process was too much body to handle and she passed away. Masaki would have deemed to be impure because she was tainted by the hollow.
Yuha Bach absorbed her powers when she was in combat with Grand Fisher quickly turning the table around in her disadvantage. Without her powers she couldn’t possibly hope to do anything. In the end she sacrificed her life to save the life of her son.
Yuhabach is the father of All Quincy. In a sense he is to the quincy what the soul-king is to the Shinigami. His blood flows within all quincy, so even Ichigo has his blood flowing through him.
With that Ishinn has told his son everything he should know about his past, his bloodline. He is surprised and I guess proud to see Ichigo find his resolve returned.
I’m sure Ichigo wants to get back to Soul Society. He goes outside to find Ikumi-san waiting outside his house. She seems a bit nervous to me as she hands back his old badge. He gives her his thanks and heads out.
The scene switches to the unknown realm where thevandereich reside. And to my surprise. Uryuu is all dressed up and seemed to have joined their ranks much to Yuha Bach’s delight.
Now, I know that Ishida isnt stupid. I also wouldn’t be surprised that Ryuuken has told Uryuu about how his mother died. Even if he didn’t. I don’t think Ryuuken would allow his son to join the man who basicly is resposible for his wife’s death.
The plot thickens indeed.
Hello again, and welcome back. With shonen being on break last week, we had to wait 2 weeks to see what would come out of Kakashi and Obito’s battle, and also the 10 tails of course.
I am not sure exactly what the ten tails did with the storms, if he tried to kill the alliance with lightning or ferocious winds, either way it did not work as Naruto was there to protect them. And it seems that Naruto had control over the chakra that he gave to the shinobi alliance, I had thought that he had no control over it at all. Another thing confirmed is that Shikaku died for nothing. He died smiling, believing (and leading us to believe) that he had conjured up the ultimate plan to defeat the jubbi, now it is clear that he only succeeded in prolonging their deaths and suffering. While CESC might be right about Shikaku sacrificing himself for now, I (Jdogg) on the other hand disagree because we still have not seen that plan come into play. It is either Kishi already forgot about it or he is still waiting to reveal the fruit of this plan to take down the Jubbi.
It is interesting to note that the ten tails is more of a humanoid than an animal, all the other tailed beasts have been animals, but the jubbi stands on two legs and has the physique of a man, it can even form hand signs. This can lead to some very interesting outcomes, for starters, if the jubbi can form hand signs it means it can also think; if it can think, then surely it will seek to rule the world with its limitless power (and the fact that the SoSP is no longer here), there will be nothing stopping it.
That brings me to my next point, does the jubbi see Naruto as the SoSP? It certainly seemed that way, it is definitely Kishi foreshadowing something to come, I believe Naruto will get to the level of the SoSP by the end of the Manga, the only way he will defeat this beast that just keeps getting stronger. What also is interesting is that the Jubbi react to Naruto how Kurama reacts to Madara. When Kurama ever mentions or hears the name Madara he gets angry in fact it is one of the reasons he is working with Naruto so he wont be manipulated by Madara or the Jubbi. Nonetheless, cesc and I both agree that the Jubbi defiantly sees Naruto as a threat.
Naruto runs out of gas and can no longer protect himself or the alliance, and just as Madara is preparing to deal the final blow, the alliance come to his aid, they plan to protect him as he has been protecting them. So after the first day of the “war” 40k remained in the alliance, even if half of those remaining died on the second day, there should still be thousands left yet I only see a handful around. Where will this leave the shinobi world when all of this is over? Is the idea of ninjas going to be scrapped? I hope not, Naruto would be boring without ninjas.
I don’t know what to make of Obito now, according to him Rin and Kashi were not the reason he turned evil, it was the whole system of shinobi that truly broke his hope in humanity. For me, Obito would have been better off sticking with the story that he is evil because his best friend let the love of his life die. He claims Rin’s death had nothing to do with it, but in fact it had everything to do it. Before Rin died, Obito had no issues with the system, then the moment Rin dies he realizes there is something wrong; does that mean she is the first shinobi to have ever lost her life protecting peace? I believe Kishi is trying to make Obito seem like less of a bitch, but to me he is just the same. Both his reasons are equally as pathetic, because in truth they are the same. I was expecting something new and exciting when Obito said Kakashi should stop flattering himself if he believed he cause Obito’s break down, but instead I was left disappointed by the “real” cause Obito gives. Smh Kishi, smh!
Kakashi has been disappointing though, failing to “pull the trigger” on multiple occasions, but I don’t really blame him too much. That being said, I am annoyed by it, and it seems Obito is as well as he purposely walks right into Raikiri. First I thought Obito used Kamui to teleport that area to the real world, then Kakashi removed his hand and revealed the giant gaping hole. My next thought after that, and especially after Obito’s words, was that Obito has replaced his entire body with zetsu, and not just the right side. Another possible explaining, and this could be more likely, is that Obito used a genjutsu. I am not sure, let me know what you guys think.
We have not been discussing the chapters much at all in the comments lately, perhaps they have been boring, or more likely my reviews have been boring. If it is the latter then please I am all ears, any tips on how to make my reviews more interesting would be very welcomed. And if it was the former, then discuss some theories, or post your opinions. I’d hate to see this page die, the only way to keep it alive is by active participation. I’ll see you guys in the comments. As for my (Jdogg) last comments on the latest chapter, I found it a refreshing chapters while we will still bit@# and moan about how we still have not seen the four hokages make their epic entrance. Because lets be honest the most exciting thing that we are waiting for right now is just that. As for me I think that seeing Naruto finally feeling the pressure and stress of being the savor of everyone just elevates his character higher.
I know this is not Naruto related, but it is just an epic picture.

Chapter 535: Everything but the Rain Op.8 ‘Defenders’
Time for a two parter after I missed the last one. So. Chapter 535 is first on my list. And Masaki soul’s is slowly pulled in by the darkness. She seems surprinsingly calm as the hollow as about to swallow her soul.
The odd couple has followed Urahara to his little shop. He isn’t unknown to Ishinn, but that shouldnt be a surprise. Urahara must be branded as quite the heretic.
As Ryuuken starts throwing a fit again, Urahara launches into an explanation. It’s best to divert to the chapter as it is quite lengthy. In short: In order to save Masaki from the Hollow. The hollow’s power must be balanced out by something of equal & opposite strength.
It needs the soul of a shinigami.
Urahara turn to Ishinn and pops the question. Is he willing to sacrifice his power to save Masaki’s soul from the hollow. If his agrees his soul will be eternally linked to hers. He will lose all his powers.
Ryuuken quickly settles that Ishinn would never do this, the sacrifice too great.
Right… or that. I don’t think Ishinn understands the science involves, but he doesn’t seem to care. The answer was simple to begin with for him. He wouldn’t have been able to look himself in the mirror if he didn’t save the person that saved his life.
So… with that Ishinn takes form inside Masaki’s soul.
Chapter 536: Everything but the Rain Op.9 ‘June Truth’
With that Ishinn is now facing the Hollow, holding on to Masaki. He quickly strikes down the hollow breaking its mask. At that same moment, Masaki recognizes him and starts asking his ears off.
Soon after though, Ishinn is back in his new body.
The procedure was a succes, he soul was saved. Masaki is alot like Inoue. Maybe less shy. Good humor in that little bit.
Before Ishinn continues to talk about his relationship with Masaki, the chapter turns to Ryuuken. His maid, Katagiri has followed him. To me, the scene that follows here is the start of a closer relationship between these two, no doubt ending up with the birth of Uryuu.
It seems Katagiri had developed feelings for Ryuuken a long time ago, but due to her status within the household, she was never able to do anything with it. Until all the recent events, watching Ryuuken suffer became too much to bear making her give voice to her feelings.
It seems, maybe evena little at this point. Her feelings have reached him.
So, after that things settle down in the real world. After High School, Masaki leaves the Ishida household. Ishinn starts a medical clinic with some tutoring from Urahara.
Slowly over time they grew closer and closer together. Ishinn having fallen completely in love with her. And thus eventually Ichigo was born.
The only noteworthy moment after that is that the hollow seemed to have transferred into Ichigo. Eventually when it came out it broke the link it had with Ishinn. With that link broken Ichigo’s powers started to return to him.
But, the kicker for this week is. The truth about the death of Masaki.
From the story’s pov exactly 9 years ago. June 17th.
Ishinn will reveal what really killed his wife.
Hello again. We had a pretty good chapter this week. Nothing big really happened, except for a few character ability demonstrations and of course Luffy's cover being blown, yet again. Be that as it may, this chapter is still in need of a good old dissecting. So without further adieu, lets get this thing started:
It's A Big World
I said it last week, but Oda has been introducing multiple new characters recently.
