Oh I think I get it. Aizen needs to reach his limit so that he can properly utelize the Hogyoku... so all this time he's just been waiting for a strong enough fighter to push him to the edge.

Or something like that anyway.

I hope Isshin doesn't get absorbed or something. :X

As for Gin... hmmm... could Kubo be thinking of doing a fight based around... finesse, mayhaps? X)

Re: the hogy: That makes sense. Like before WW was "born" Aizen said that someone with twice the power of a captain could temporarily put the ball at full-strength. So maybe he's trying to seriously awaken it now? D:

Looks like Aizen is also trying to contain a god inside his vessel fortunately he doesn't need to use millions of souls in order to do that harhar. But these are the fights that clearly going to show the way that Bleach will continue and the cinematography keeps getting better keep it up Kubo-sensei.

Oh, Rangiku is extra gorgeous this chapter ♥ I am burning for some GinRan interactions!

RANGIKU! *also loves*

Ch. 400 is continuation but still just a set-up chapter. It seems Deicide is going to be the next End of Hypnosis and The Lust.

Aizen's on-coming power-up has me questioning what all was in Urahara's research on the hogyouku, and if Aizen is testing a hypothesis proposed by Urahara or if he figured this out himself. (All of Aizen's accomplishments are thanks to Urahara so far, so I wouldn't put it past him. Particularly considering Urahara's hunches are usually right.) As well, it makes me question what all Urahara did not include that all sides against Aizen could possibly use to defeat him once he's fused with the damn thing. This is another culmination point in Bleach that I am highly excited to see.

As for Gin, if Ichigo doesn't defeat him, I believe his bankai is set-up for a possible future scrimmage between him and Yoruichi. The fastest sword vs. the fastest shinigami.

Random observation from several weeks ago I thought I would bring up again: No Hanatarou this chapter. He was in 100, 200, and 300 (Check for yourself!), but not 400. That makes me sad, but we got a Rangiku appearance though. :D

I noticed. And again, the human mind that searches for patterns and meanings is disappointed. BUT WE HAVE GIN! AND RANGIKU! AND GIN!

Gin's bankai is not so bad after all. But smart Ichigo is smart :D

Rangiku,please get up!! <333 If she stepped into the fight it would be more than cool.
Lilyfoodisverygood on April 15th, 2010 06:30 am (UTC)
Erm Aizen doesn't seem to be up to his limit in Shinigami form. I feel like he didn't even bother to do anything flashy with his sword yet.

Wow the GinRan fans must be going crazy. I sense some sort of closure for them now. It would be amazing for Ran to deliver the final blow or something. Since we all know bad guys always die *sigh*
mrdracospirit on April 15th, 2010 06:43 am (UTC)
I wonder how Rangiku going to play into this myself. She doesn't look like she's in a state to do anything... but if this is the end for Gin, I can't see her being completely sidelined.

Maybe we get some meaningful and bittersweet last line of Gin to do with her? You know like...

"Tell Rangiku I'm sorry."
"Rangiku forgive me."
"Never forget those who truely love you kid *glance at Rangiku* no power worth te loss of the affection."

I might be adding a little personal bias into this, so I'll ask anyone else who might want to answer:

Does the fact that Rangiku was not only shown, but shown to be conscious too, seem kind of... bad for Gin? All I can think of is how Tousen would have triumphed in his buggy form if Hisagi hadn't shown up. Kira's (maybe still) down for the count, but since Ran seems to be at least mostly healed, there's a good chance she could join the fight. (Honestly, I want her to, but like I said, I could be projecting personal bias here.)
Kylarakarenai on April 15th, 2010 06:39 am (UTC)
Rangiku is healed such that I think she's... like, *alive* and will continue to be so for the near future. But I do think it's really interesting because basically, Kubo wanted her healed enough such that she can stand up if necessary.

I would love it if Rangiku and Gin could talk. If they fought, I think my shipper self would swoon.

Wooww...Lately Ichigo has been saying deep meaningful words. I like this trend :D

And Anzai has been getting Gin the run of his money with that creepy last panel. So dark the aura there. The plot of Hougyoku finally starts to reveal. Big revelation will come up. I can't wait.

Knowing Matsumoto is alive is the only thing I liked about this chapter. I feel kind of disappointed.
qwirky on April 15th, 2010 06:46 am (UTC)
Rangikuuuu~! D: D: *waits for a Gin/Rangiku confrontation of some sort* *hugs Rangiku*

I like how Ichigo actually used his brain in this battle. Come on, who wasn't at least slightly weirded out by him forming hypotheses in the middle of a fight? We all know he's smart, but this is the kid who decided to play jenga with a menos. Of course he's obviously grown and matured a great deal since then, but...

No clue what's happening with Aizen and the hougyoku. But it's interesting that Isshin pushed Aizen to his shinigami limits.

Clearly chapters should not come out when my brain is too tired to process thoughts.

See icon, one of my favorite Ichigo moments ever.

I definitely took a double take seeing Ichigo think so much in a battle. I'm strangely proud of Ichigo these past few chapters. Isshin's headbutt worked wonders! XD

Oh my, the Gin/Ran moment where she sees him through the smoke is just gorgeous! I've been waiting for something to happen between them so this makes me hopeful that something might.

The only thing that really disturbs me about this chapter is the idea of Ichigo actually having a 'hypothesis'. I don't think that even Ishida has used the term 'hypothesis' so far. Coming from Ichigo, that's just kinda frightening. ;)
(Anonymous) on April 15th, 2010 09:06 am (UTC)
C'mon guys. Ichigo may have forgotten to have a brain during his battle boners (VS Grimmjow and VS Ulquiorra) but now that he's called down he remembers that he can actually stand and use it. He's rash but he's not dumb. Not in the intelligent sense. Now, battle intelligent... not so much. Especially when the battle boner goes up.

YES, GinRan. After a hundred chapters, here's what we've been waiting for.
Kylarakarenai on April 15th, 2010 07:23 am (UTC)
Actually. I went back. And this is the last Gin/Rangiku scene:


TBTP was eleven chapters that come inbetween. Altogether, honestly, it's 400-178 = 222 + 11 = 233.

RANGIKU!! **spazzes**

I got so excited about the fact that she got fixed, I almost don't care for the rest of the chapter! :D

kohi_no_torakohi_no_tora on April 15th, 2010 07:36 am (UTC)
More Isshin is always good and that whack to the head seems to have put Ichigo's brain back in gear.

Good to see that Matsumoto is still alive as well, though I'm of two minds about her getting up to fight. If she does though, I'm putting down good money that Gin will be going down and going down hard.

And I love, love, love, LOVE! that Ichigo is just using his bankai for this fight and for the moment at least leaving his mask alone. (I'm guessing that if he does use it in this fight, it will to deliver the final blow). Love your shinigami powers, Ichigo. Train them, strengthen them, push them to their absolute limits and then bust out your mask. Gin's comments on the power in Ichigo's blade are also an interesting call back to Byakuya's comments that Ichigo's bankai is a vast compression of his power rather than an expansion like every other.

Makes me wonder if Tensa Zangetsu has not yet yielded up all it's secrets.
Nagihan: dorky Ishidafuku_taicho on April 15th, 2010 08:08 am (UTC)
It would be awesome to see a new move from Zangetsu. It's about time. The last 2-3 years have always been the time limits of keeping up the hollow mask.
Seeing Ichigo injured from his shoulders made me hopeful actually. Just like old times, he's getting attacked on the shoulders and each time he was, he powered up ♥♥♥♥ My hypothesis is that if there is a hole in his chest, he powers up his hollow self. If he's injured from the shoulders, his shinigami self will. Lol, that's my hope anyway XD
