spoilers out for 399  
Looks like Hirako Shinji has the color spread.

Spoilers here at Bleach Asylum.

My only thought is that at 13 km long, Gin's bankai should clearly run marathons.

A really, really long sword. Wow. It's got to have another feature for next chapter, or else Gin totally lost the Bankai usefulness lottery.

...or so long that it extends into the next chapter. That would be funny. Just this big line going through the panels for each page, until we get to the next chapter and see the end of it.

Gin's bankai is Longcat.
it's green and tastes like licorice.: ichigorionarch on April 6th, 2010 11:47 pm (UTC)
This is oddly appropriate.

13km? Wtf is Kubo smoking? Let's hope this looks better in pictures than it sounds.

Kubo is probably going to wait to give us Isshin backstory when he gets badly injured, he seems to link dramatic/tragic moments with their stories quite a bit. I am sure it is going to take some time and I am dying to know :P
Yeah, I hope Gin's bankai is better than it sounds there *sigh*.

Insert long sword jokes here.

Gin: "Check out my sword. It's long."
Ichigo: "Meh."
Gin: "... okay, well, my bankai? IT'S EVEN LONGER. IS THIS NOT IMPRESSIVE?"
Ichigo: "Eh, Rukia's fine with my sword length."

And so on.

But this chapter sounds kind of boring. :x Hopefully the real thing is more interesting. <33

Yeah, I am a bit disappointed on how Gin's Pinocchio type Bankai sounds... So, it grows 13Km long, rigid, straight in the air!? , woopty doo! lol. Apparently he can swing it, but... I wonder if it is also "thick" or wide and flexible and not just long, it might be a more "useful" that way to negotiate conners or sudden changes of direction, etc... lol, if not, it is going to be total fail with the limitation connotations. He was more the ambush type of fighter that just hides and waits like a sniper to shoot the sword to kill on command. When he fought Hitsugaya, it was a lot more impressive though, so we know he can do better than being sneaky.
It seems overall just a not very significant chapter as far as substance goes. More seconds of action stretched over 19 pages. Hopefully I am wrong, since there are things unsaid there and it is very sketchy. OOOH, I want to see that Shinji color spread *wha*.
Thanks K for the spoiler link ^_^ <3

Honestly, I have to say this sounds lame as hell. I'm beginning to wonder if Kubo's clear impatience to end this arc is driving him to cut more corners than he should.

I hope to God there's some kind of epic plot reversal and Gin beats Ichigo's ass like a Nemo pinata at a little kid's birthday, because if not this is going to blow serious chunks.

Re: .......

Trust Sensei. This is breather chapter. It is set-up chapter. Usually when guys pull ban kai, they do some impressive damage first then get pwned--this time Gin's bankai is unremarkable and he gets cut right away--HOW MUCH OF THE MORTAGE DO I HAVE TO BET THAT HE'S GONNA PULL SOMETHING SNEAKY NEXT WEEK?

In other news, Neha may have been right. Gin's bankai will really turn out to be a very very very extended weasel!

Next chapter is 400 and therefore will be epic. I think my heart would have exploded if Kubo had made this chapter MORE AWESOME then the last two.

Maybe a break would be nice!

I'm trying not to rage right now... I know this may be a fillery or setup chapter, but COME ON. This is chapter 399, you call that a setup? I'm making sure I have tequila on hand for next week just in case I'm let down again. :/
Kylarakarenai on April 6th, 2010 08:01 pm (UTC)
If 400 is really, really amazing, then 399 is worth it as a set-up and it's just one week.

If 400 sucks, well.

13 km is longer than the height of Mount Everest.

It is also the maximum estimation of the Tower of Babel, higher than the Mariana Trench, equal to the diameter of Mars's smaller moon, and higher than the cruising altitude for passenger planes.


Having gotten that out of the way, I don't like this chapter. Originality and pace right out the window. And like other people have pointed out, this is the setup for chapter 400.

Gin is playing around. No comment.

For some reason, Gin's bankai reminds me of Son Goku's weapon, the Nioybol, which can extend to an enormous length. The only difference is that it has blade on the edge.

This is a normal reaction for an early spoiler where "nothing" supposed to happened and yes, chapter 400 is next week. Wait, Isshin and Aizen are having a small bickering convo. You don't bet any smoke would come out from them?

I have been thinking that when a "sword" turned into a "lance", it just didn't do the work right. Remember, Nel's lance failed against Nnoitra, Ulqui's lame miss in lance throwing. And now Gin? We're having a strange trend here.

It's amused to me when Gin's bankai attack named such as "God Killing Lance" ; Oh Gin with "GOD KILLING Lance". I can't help but keeping thinking that someday, I would see that Gin would backstab Aizen using that lance.

Gin wouldn't release his bankai if it wouldn't be more advantageous to fight Ichigo than his shikai. I'll wait for the chapter, but I'm sure there is some awesomesauce part of Gin's bankai we have yet to discover. Give Kubo time, he'll pull through.
oh gallant piglet,aizome on April 6th, 2010 09:25 pm (UTC)
Hm. Well, Gin getting shot in the head with GT and bleeding sounds like a typical cliffhanger end, so I'm going to bet a sandwich we go back to HM next week.

At least we get a bit more Isshin this week. I can't complain with that. XD

I will bow down to you if it happens.

Oh Lord, I want you to be right.

I suspect that there's going to be more of a psychological aspect

I agree with this. It makes sense if Gin's bankai had a psychological aspect to it; it would fit in with his personality very well, considering how tricky he can be. Perhaps some sort of psychological game to mess with Ichigo's mind. I can't imagine that all there is to Gin's bankai is an extra long sword to cut things up. I don't think Gin is exactly the type to hack through enemies and that's that; no, he's got to play with them first before disposing of them.
