Rukia and Renji finished their training before Ichigo did. They were already at the final palace while Ichigo was still talking to his dad. They probably left hours before him.
The thing is, Ichigo was only away in the real world for a single night. That's about 12 hours at the very most so he couldn't have fallen THAT far behind Renji and Rukia. And that's the same amount of time Ichigo said it would take for him to arrive to the fight, and its only 12 hours because of how extraordinarily powerful he has become.
Now, either Renji and Rukia have dramatically increased the speed of their shunpo to the extent that its comparable to Ichigo's at full strength, or the Royal Guard is deliberately delaying Ichigo's arrival to the fight for some reason.

|I'm shocked. Can't say I was expecting Bambietta to be taken down with just that attack of Komamura's so easily. I figured that Komamura's attack would have injured her somewhat, but not to defeat her just like that... Especially after that hype and screen time she's gotten up until now which suggested that she was one of the more powerful Sternritter. Well on the bright side, I'm glad Komamura got his first legitimate win against a fairly powerful opponent although I don't like that's at the expense of Bambi and literally his humanity.|
That being said, I'm still pretty sure Bambi was the strongest of her group. Giselle and Candice said before that they don't like using the Volstandig since it wears them out quickly, and Giselle didn't even know that Candice was capable of using Volstandig before she accidentally resonated with the others and brought her wings out.
Well, Bambi didn't really fall that far from Yhwach's palace. Either Giselle gets her way, or Uryu intervenes and we get to see a glimpse of his new abilities....or Kenpachi just happens to defeat them all instantly while he's on his way to Yhwach. We all know he's going to fight him for real this time.

Anyway...unless there's some drawback/caveat I'm not seeing, transformed Koma shot up the tier list top Top 5ish, right?
This is probably Komamura's version of the FKT. His immortality is probably being sustained by his stamina and so you're probably not supposed to use it for an extended amount of time. Except he doesn't lose Shinigami powers when uses that up, he'll actually die and dissipate into nothingness.
Why else would Clifford look so depressed while staring at Komamura's heart? He knows Komamura won't have the chance to come back and retrieve his heart. He's going to run out of power long before that happens.

He can totes defeat Bambi. But when her posse shows up to help, I'm not so sure.
I really doubt Bambi even needs her posse to take down Komamura, who don't really seem all that reliable as posses to begin with since they apparently planned on ditching her from the start.
But as for Komamura as much as I like him, he's probably done for. I'm getting the impression that what he revealed in this chapter is likely the full extent of his new abilities and the deathflags he's been giving off isn't helping.
Meanwhile, Bambietta has gotten some of the most screentime out of all the Sternritter, and she has been hyped up and suggested to be amongst the strongest of the bunch too. It's way too early for her to start losing, let alone without backup.
Also, Bambietta might not be able to use Sklaverei. I mean, if anybody besides Quilge could use it, I'd like to imagine they would've done so by now.
Look at what has been levitating above her head ever since she released her Volstandig. She's wearing the same Halo that Kirge used to activate his Sklaverei and Ichigo himself deduced that without the Volstandig's Halo, Skalverei is impossible.
As for why they aren't all using it now, It seems like it's really their last resort since Kirge himself believed that using it corrupts his wings with evil. Which actually does make sense considering the obvious Nazi parallels with the Vandenreich.
|Miura starting new short series, Berserk to resume serialization (66) | Posted on Nov. 10, 2013, 10:50 a.m.|
Top 5 in realistic artsyles possibly but realistic =/= good, everyone can draw realistic given enough time. Fairy Tail's Mashima for example is an incredible artist who can draw a page with lots of detail very fast but his style is hardly realistic.
....You can't be serious. Sure, it's okay to make jokes about how long it takes for Miura to come out with a chapter, which is probably because of how burnt out he is. However, it's no wonder why he's burnt out when the amount of detail Miura puts into a single one of his pages is absolutely many leagues ahead Fairy Tail and 95% of other manga. This isn't even debatable.
He's been working on Berserk for 23 YEARS while Mashima is nearing only 7 years.

|Is Tite Kubo sexist? [SPOILERS] (27) | Posted on Nov. 9, 2013, 1:30 a.m.|
|There isn't really a correlation between power levels and the sex of characters in Bleach. Hell, Unohana, Yoruichi, and Harribel are amongst the most powerful characters in the series that are capable of defeating most of the cast, with the exception of extraordinarily powerful characters like Yamamoto, Aizen, and Yhwach and so far we haven't seen any males who'd fare any better either except for the Royal Guard, and Ichigo whose strength doesn't derive from the fact that he's male.|
Now Kubo doesn't avoid sexualizing his female characters, but I wouldn't say Kubo is being sexist and discriminating against women in a way that makes them look inferior and submissive when he does sexualize them. Actually I'd say it's the opposite. When Bambietta had literally split a guy in half because she sexualized herself, it obviously did not serve to shame and humiliate her. It endowed her with a sense of dominance. When Harribel first demonstrated her resurreccion with her not-so subtle attire, again it didn't endow her male opponent with a sense of power of her. Actually like Bambietta, Harribel immediately cut the guy in half although it was an illusion. Kubo seems to enjoy having women literally split men in half now that I think about it.

2) Yhwach never exactly gave us a motive as to WHY he kidnapped Halibel and chained her up at their headquarters. Recall that he was gonna basically do the same to Ichigo and slowly convince him to join his side. And second of all....why would he PERSONALLY approach Halibel to take her prisoner when it seems like Haschwalth or one of the stronger Stern Ritters could've accomplished this themselves?
Simple, Yhwach and Harribel are both leaders. Yhwach personally taking down Harribel with ease and then showing her off as a trophy behind his throne directly serves as a demonstration that shows the Arrancar that the Quincy have a leader that is far more powerful and is worthier for them to serve, and it of course diminishes Harribel's credibility.
Not to mention for whats left of the Arrancar still loyal to Harribel, it has to be utterly humiliating to have their leader suddenly defeated and captured so easily.
Having someone like Haschwald defeat and kill Harribel wouldn't have had the same effect, and she probably would have been able to at least put up a decent fight for a little awhile before losing.

|Well uh..I don't think the anime isn't doing that great a job of turning Elizabeth into a likable character. She preaches that she has an obligation as an aristocrat to protect the weak. That's all fine and well, except that doesn't really add up now when she had just deliberately reduced Satellizer to a cripple in a pretty agonizing way without warning, which effectively exiled her from Alaska and she rationalized the whole thing as protecting her from the Chevalier. So Elizabeth's way of protecting Satellizer from being targeted and tortured by the Chevalier was to simply...do it herself. That's some pretty psychopathic logic there. And all of this only happened because Satellizer had done the unthinkable, offer her an alliance and her family's support. In the manga, Elizabeth had simply told her that she had nothing to do with it and walked away, not immediately lash out against her like a psychopath.|
Then again, Elizabeth is the person who was the real mastermind behind the junior's attacks on her in the first season and interpreted Satellizer defending herself against a hostile junior that was sexually harassing and humiliating her as an act of rebellion against the Juniors. I guess I shouldn't be that surprised that Elizabeth has a pretty twisted sense of logic.
And since the anime is adopting Bali, Satellizer being crippled and away from the action isn't even worst of her problems. Can't the poor girl ever get a break?

That's only true for Yamamoto and Kyoraku, and Yamamoto had the excuse of needing to buy time so he could setup Ennetsu Jigoku. If Yamamoto had just incinerated all of the Espada from the start, then he would have been left without a viable counter to Kyoka Suigetsu. I say viable because Yamamoto could have defeated Aizen with Zanka No Tachi without too much difficulty. The problem is, it would have undoubtedly caused serious collateral damage to the world that he's supposed to be protecting, if not completely reduce the surrounding area to ashes.
Aside from those two and Ukitake, everyone else was clearly out of their league against the Espada.
|How strong is Candice? *Bleach spoilers* (14) | Posted on Oct. 30, 2013, 9:59 p.m.|
Rank means nothing in Bleach. Stark was #1 and he went down like a punk compared to #2.
Not really fair, Starrk had a much showing than Barragan and Harribel. Unlike those two he never lost the advantage during his fights and wasn't really threatened at any point until Kyoraku back-stabbed him.
|How strong is Candice? *Bleach spoilers* (11) | Posted on Oct. 30, 2013, 9:51 p.m.|
So far, their letters determine their rank. It can probably also determine their power level. Since Candice is T that means she is the 20th strongest, if you count Uryu in the ranks. That means Lolitoto is the 8th strongest.
I just remembered that the guy with the bizarre name who fought Rose to a standstill was ranked U, who is from we've seen a captain class quincy. I think it's fair to say that Candice is probably more powerful than most of the lieutenants thanks to her psuedo volstandig and the blut, but I really can't imagine her being at the level of a captain. Much less, being slightly stronger than the guy who fought on par with one. Heck now that I think about it, they're probably going to serve as the opponents for Harribel's fraccion while Harribel rushes off to stop Bambietta from finishing off Shinji and Komamura once her fraccion release her from captivity.
It's probably more accurate to say that the lower lettered Sternritter hold more authority in the Vandenreich, and are for the most part with a couple exceptions, more powerful than the higher lettered ones.

No, I've always just assumed that Lloyd Lloyd wasn't really that powerful in his own right without mimicking someone like Kenpachi. And as for Royd, well I've always thought of him as not a normal rank and file Sternritter who was meant to fight on the frontlines, but rather as an unimportant tool whose sole purpose was to trick Yamamoto into wasting his strength on a nobody and to allow Bach to have tea with Aizen. Nothing more.
It's not really all that implausible of an idea that the Sternritter's ranking does take strength at least to some extent if you consider that the two strongest Quincys including its leader are ranked "A" and if I remember correctly Buzzbee considered Haschwald's "B" as a higher rank than his own.
What I'm getting at is that the Sternritter's ranking system definitely has some sort of hierarchy with the first letters of the alphabet are more viable than the last and that Bambietta is pretty high up on the Sternritter hierarchy. It doesn't make sense that Bach would give weaker Quincys a higher rank in the Sternritter.
|Bleach 554 *spoilers* (24) | Posted on Oct. 22, 2013, 9:39 p.m.|
I'm surprised that two Captains are facing off against Bambietta. Is she really that powerful? We get to see the results of Komamura's training as well.
It really does seem like the Sternritter's alphabetical ranking system does indeed take strength into account and isn't just limited to being reflective of a particular power or ability.
If that's really true and you ignore Bach and Uryu, Bambietta would be the 4th strongest of the Sternritter so seeing her take on two captains simultaneously does seem fair enough. Still as much as I like Komamura and Shinji, I really doubt they'll be able to defeat her although they'll probably land in a few good hits.
