    Looks like Kubo got married. Congrats to him.

    So now Bleach will be really upbeat and optimistic for the next year, and then end with everyone dying. Am I right? /jk

    i have a theory: Tsukishima, Ginjo, and Giriko were brought back in to train Orihime and possibly chad into captain level threats. speaking from an out of universe standpoint

    Of the fullbringers, all but three of them have esoteric powers. The other 3 being ginjo, chad, and jackie.

    Of the remaining, only Tsukishima and to a lesser extent Riruka managed to be threats. and that was because they are both capable of using their powers creatively, and had the stats to keep up. Amongst the fullbringers, it's obvious that that trying to overcome your foes via sheer power is a bad idea. See Giriko vs. Kenny, Ginjo vs. ichigo, and 80 percent of Chad's screentime.

    Giriko represents what happens when a fullbringer ignores his esoteric abilities and powers through. Ginjo represents a fullbringer with the stats to keep up but no esotericness to exploit. and Tsukishima represents the ideal full bringer, who is fast enough to keep pace with captains and has an esoteric ability that's full of methods of abuse.

    Events will conspire that Ginjo teams up with the soul society, temporarily, in order to fight off the quincy. Although he have a major revenge boner for the Soul society, ginjo never struck me as a suicidally evil type. so it's believable that he'd put aside his hate to save the whole damn universe. So Ginjo will exposit to orihime and chad about fullbring, then offer to train orihime so she can fight by ichigo's side. If kubo is so inclined, Chad will then seek training elsewhere to overcome his fullbring's genericness.

    You speak of impossible things. Chad will never be anything but a disappointment.

    The rest makes sense though.

    Actually I think it would be readily in line with Chad's history to go through uber training, help fight the Quincy in the next invasion, stomp the shit out of the Luchador guy...

    ...and then get one shot-ed by Bambietta in the next chapter, and spend the rest of the invasion on the ground.

    I hope that's not the case.

    I hope that Tsukishima is about to dothe big damn hero thing and but is slaughtered viciously by some random quincy, gets pulled into hell to rot and is then never heard from ever again.

    Or Aizen shows up and stabs him from out of nowhere at his moment of victory, just to troll.

    No, Tsukishima worked for Aizen all along. It will end with Aizen flanked by Tsukishima on one side and totes-still-alive-Gin on the other, and it will be awesome.

    Yes. It will be revealed that Gin's flashbacks were caused by Book of the End, which Tsukishima used as part of Aizen's master plan.

    They're really Best Friends Forever. Tsukishima ending up in Soul Society is a ruse so he can go free Aizen.

    But why would Aizen ever want to get out of his comfy chair?

    So he can put it in the same room as his ridiculously giant couch, obviously.

    Everything must be exactly as how Sousuke Aizen envisioned it.

    And he envisioned it...a little to the left.

    I have a feeling that Bach tossed the couch out already.
