    Eh, different cultural values. Byakuya's primary character trait is a strong sense of giri, a classic Japanese virtue which basically means "obligation" or "duty", often to the point of sacrificing ones own human feelings. (Ninjou.) It's a common conflict in Japanese drama. Basically, he is noble in the sense that he'll serve Soul Society no matter what.

    I'm calling now that ironically, Zaraki's zanpakuto's powers will be healing-based, and that's why its never spoken to him. It will not respond to carnage.
    Turns out all the best healers started out as blood-thirsty maniacs, because healing powers are fueled by irony.

    Besides, Byakuya never claimed to be noble in the "I will always give my opponent a fair chance" sense.
    Hell, flash-stepping behind people and stabbing them in the back is usually Byakuya's opening move.

    makes more sense that what Ichigo usually does.

    Aizen enabled Rukia to go to the human world. Uruhara hid the H-device inside of her. Aizen expected this to happen. since the H-device gave Orohime her super-powers that makes Aizen responsible for her current abilities. I think that's about as far as you could reasonable take the idea.

    the alternative is that Kubo was baiting the fan-community into writing kinky fan-fics about Aizen and Orohime... and that doesn't make any sense.

    everybody knows the only person Aizen thinks is worthy of Aizen is.... himself-- so I'd wager he's more likely to make a clone of himself and use it as a decoy/sex-toy than do anything with Orohime. "Aizen, you sexy devil, you...."

    "oh, you really think that's Aizen down there in that sexy chair? no, that's my sex-toy clone. I've been pulling the strings for the entire manga in the dark and all-concealing shadows!"

    That sounds incredibly nasty.

    Anyway, the thing Ulquiorra hinted at didn't have anything to do with Aizen assaulting Orihime, it had to do with him implying that Orihime could no longer go back to being with the nakama because she was something now more akin to them, or something like that. I don't think we ever got a follow up to what was meant there.

    ...well, okay, yeah. I see what you mean.

    New chapter is out.

    Apparently Hikifune doesn't even need a battle to turn into a hottie. Just cooking.

    I do like the intereaction between Ichigo and Renji in this chapter. It's always fun stuff between them.

    Also: "Being around Urahara Kiskue appears to have made you lose your faith in humanity."

    And I think that Kubo just took a stabb at Toriko.

    So to be a member of zero division, you cant just be ridiculously strong. You have to make some kind of revolutionary contribution to Soul Society. Very interesting.

    I can't wait to find out what the creepy spider woman did.

    Probably invented stabbing hollows or something.
    Siriel:
    Transient just likes to do that.

    Why he keeps picking up ridiculous arguments and then try to defend them, I will never know.

    I'm guessing she invented/discovered Kido. Although I was shocked by the mod soul belonging to Hikifune. I always thought Urahara had invented it. No clue what the last guy must have done. We never learned about the first guy did we? Did he discover the flash step or just invent those hot springs or...?

    I was right. Again.

    Also: "Being around Urahara Kiskue appears to have made you lose your faith in humanity."
    Hm, the one I read just said: "Kisuke Urahara made you quite suspicious."

    Anyway, I'm curious about the revalation that the zanpakutou was invested, rather than being a natural phenomenon. Maybe we'll finally get some answers regarding how they form and how closely they are tied to the shinigami?
