Bleach 457 is out  
Bleach 457 is up at MangaStream.





That was a fast read. I wasn't really impressed with all the "action" and dramatic action scan lines, since the fighting wasn't really amazing.

Butler-san throws numbers from his watch at Ginjou, and Riruka has some kind of doll thing that looks sort of like Charlotte from Madoka Magica.

Ginjou definitely had no clue who ShiShi was.

My reaction to ShiShi's jackpot power was: "So he's Setzer from Final Fantasy VI, only he's not awesome, hot, sexy, or debonair." (But he's fighting with his hands, so maybe he's supposed to be Tifa from FFVII.) It's still a neat power, the ability to manipulate probability, though it's not clear if the probability is only linked to things ShiShi does with his hands (i.e., punching something or flipping a coin), if it affects the probability of anything he does, or if it has a greater sphere of influence.

Getsuga Tenshou...! D: D: D: D: Ichigo...

Tsukishima says that Ichigo has merged his shinigami powers and Fullbringer powers together, so presumably the Getsuga Tenshou is part of Ichigo's shinigami powers, not just a Fullbringer power that Ichigo happened to name "Getsuga Tenshou." (Annie suggested Ichigo might name his Fullbring power "Zangetsu," and I imagined a very irritated Zangetsu and shota!Zangetsu in my head with "Do Not Want" faces.) So not only is Ichigo faster, his powers are now, apparently, both shinigami and Fullbringer completely merged.

Does this mean we'll see Zangetsu soon? I prefer Ichigo in his shinigami robes with Zangetsu (either meat cleaver or Bankai form), rather than him dressed as Rave!Spider-Tron. Or did Tsukishima mean the shinigami powers and fullbringer powers have merged to form a new entity/type of power? Or was Tsukishima being more general and/or guessing?

Tsukishima's face is "just as planned." 'Oh, awesome, having Ichigo fall into despair by manipulating his friends made him complete his power. Time to eat!' This chapter makes it clear that Tsukishima wanted Ichigo to develop his powers; the question is still why - so he could make Ichigo his minion/eat him/some other thing? In any case, it seems evident that he chased Ichigo around for these past few chapters, rather than cutting him right away, because he didn't know the progress/status of Ichigo's powers. However, now that he knows Ichigo's done, it's time to slaughter the cow and make Ichigo-steaks.

Poor Ichigo D: Chad and Inoue defend Tsukishima again. Chad's oddly mute about Ichigo saying he doesn't want to fight them. Tsukishima uses his human shields as a decoy to attack Ichigo from the back -

And Ginjou goes down, taking the stab meant for Ichigo. Not going to lie - those pages have major Ginjou/Ichigo shipper vibes.

At the end, Ishida flies through the air looking determined.

Now that Ginjou's plummeted to the ground, I don't know how the next chapter will start off. Ichigo flies after Ginjou? Tsukishima and Ichigo fight pointlessly for another five pages? I would predict that Ishida would arrive next chapter, but I thought he'd actually arrive this chapter (and not merely be shown to be in transit)...

Wow. Ginjou. Thank you.

Ichigo is needing some serious backup pronto.

I really really hope that Ishida arrives next chapter.

Shishi's ability is kinda fun, though it reminds me a bit of Shunsui's shikai.

Wonder how Ginjou's fall will exactly affect Ichi? Can he really break evn more?

Okay seriously. I can't be the only one thinking 'Deja Vu' here.

Where did my war go?

Pretty sure that took less than a minute to read. ;_;

Wasn't expecting much, but I'm really liking Shishigawara even more now.
jpblackjpblack on July 20th, 2011 05:09 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the whole chapter should have just been the Fullbringers causing mass chaos. Ichigo angsted last week.

Well, Ginjou doubt seems to be gone now, he did take a serious blow for Ichigo there.

Tsukishima seems to want to finish up now... :O

Its annoying, one chapter we see one Senior with Urahara with Misterysword Frame/Page and next Chapter we see a Ishida Frame... :( Bring them into the action already, run faster dorks >.<

Translation quality alright? Seems to make sense to me at least....

ON BEHALF OF BALLADBIRD
//This chapter makes it clear that Tsukishima wanted Ichigo to develop his powers; the question is still why - so he could make Ichigo his minion/eat him/some other thing? In any case, it seems evident that he chased Ichigo around for these past few chapters, rather than cutting him right away, because he didn't know the progress/status of Ichigo's powers. However, now that he knows Ichigo's done, it's time to slaughter the cow and make Ichigo-steaks.//

While I agree that he feels everything is going according to his plan, I didn't get Aizen vibes from Tsukishima at all, quite the opposite, everything going according to plan seems to mean his inevitable death, if his words prior to Chad and Orhime jumping between them mean anything.

Other than that... *shrug*  average chapter?  Based on impartial observation, it's safe to assume that Ishida isn't affected by bookmark's power, so he should be there to back up Ichigo soon.  the end of the fight is a forgone conclusion, though now I'm curious as to who it is pulling Tsuki-chan's strings.

Re: ON BEHALF OF BALLADBIRD

Whose inevitable death? Tsukishima's? "It's over for me" didn't strike me as Tsukishima's way of saying "I'm going to die soon", though I suppose it could be read that way. If we're assuming MangaStream's translation on that line is correct, then it's at least ambiguous. To me, it signaled he was going to stop playing around with Ichigo and go in for the kill, or do whatever it was he wanted to do to Ichigo.
dvaB..aka..Yumicode_mari on July 20th, 2011 05:32 pm (UTC)
Oh my, the ending is so gay...
But anyway, this chapter ended so quickly, it wasn't even fun. Fua. Only made me want to re-read the chapters of Ichigo's fights with Grimmjow and Ulquiorra. And btw, Ishida can fly? 0o

/Tsukishima says that Ichigo has merged his shinigami powers and Fullbringer powers together/
Then, according to what Gingo said some chapters ago, Ichigo's form is not complete until he can use his hollow powers. It would be awesome if he fired something akin to cero.

What are you referring to? Sorry, I don't know what line you mean or why Ichigo would have to use hollow powers.

Ooh my Ishida senses are tingling!

Alright chapter. Ginjou got cut by Tsukishima's fullbring though? I'm wondering how that will play out.
Danielwdboldstar on July 20th, 2011 06:08 pm (UTC)
Hm. So Ginjou's taking a blade for Ichigo seems to confirm he's not on Tsukishima's side, unless Ginjou and Tsukishima are REALLY hamming this up.

That said, I still dunno that I trust Ginjou. I'm wondering if Tsukishima and Ginjou both had the same plans for Ichigo, and the Squabble here is just who gets to "eat" his powers/delicious flesh/whatever.

This was actually pretty exciting. Even though even though Rukia hasn't reappeared and Ishida hasn't reached the scene of the fight, it doesn't feel like filler to me. Speaking of Rukia, I don't think we're going to see her until Ichigo does. That's why it had to wait until after Ichigo regained his ability to see reiatsu.

Frankly, I can't wait to see what's happened to Ginjou. Can Tsukishima change his mind about the bookmark he's inserting?

As for Ginjou having no clue who Shishigawara is, the mangareader translation of 456 has him wondering not who he is but what he's doing there, which is suggests that Ginjou simply didn't think that Shishigawara was more than a housekeeper. This week's mangareader translation appears to be lifted from mangastream. They even imported the pages consisting of Photoshop colorings of manga panels.

It still bothers me that Jackie, Riruka, and Giriko didn't move to defend Shuu-chan from Ichigo in the previous chapter. Aren't they supposed to be attached to him?

Prediction: next chapter more slow plot. Ishida only shows up at the end of the chapter to act as suspense for the next chapter. Of course thats if we are lucky.
