Well I admit it is impressive that Madara is able to take on all nine Bijuu and only come out with an arm lost, but the amount of questionable methods he used is concerning. Firstly how was he able to absorb Sasuke’s Amaterasu last chapter and how is he able to summon Susanoo this chapter when he had no Sharingan eyes? Can Uchiha actually utilise their jutsu without the need for their sharingan? I can’t really say the prior 657 chapters support that but who knows, Kishimoto-sensei may have some logical explanation to crease out these plot-wrinkles.
This chapter irritated me in so many ways…once again we have a Shinigami Captain reveal their secrets to how their Bankai functions to their opponent and immediately after get their Bankai countered and themselves thrashed to next Thursday. Kensei got himself a beat down usually reserved for lieutenants and Rose wilted before he even bloomed…and shamefully even more, what took him down was a ‘star beam’ attack. I don’t even know what to say anymore, two Shinigami Captains whom are Visored got themselves completely owned by one of the weirdest and uninteresting Bleach antagonist. Well at least Renji appeared, hopefully this time a Shinigami doesn’t go and blurt out the weakness to their Bankai.
