I voted for Fullmetal Alchemist, which is great, but I'm partial to some older titles. Flame of Recca in particular was rather excellent, as was Yu Yu Hakusho. I just finished a re-read of Recca last week, and I was surprised at just how much the newer shou ...

Doubt Rin will make an appearance, seeing as they would need her DNA and shit but how and why would they want her, don't see Orochimaru/Second/Kabuto wanting anything to do with her.
What I don't get is why Orochimaru didn't su ...

Does this mean that Obito's about to die? Pulling out the Jinchuuriki kills the host. If so, he's about to use the last of his strength to revive Madara, which was the original plan anyways. ...

I'm still not clear on why the other half of the kyuubi is still sealed inside Minato in the first place. Didn't Orochimaru break that seal like 30 chapters ago? How can all four Hokage's be freed from it but not the kyuubi?
PS: I get that he used a diffe ...

So... what form of zangetsu was that? Bankai? Shikai? Or is that how they look normally?
Is one his shinigami/hollow powers, and one his quincy powers? I'm assuming they'll have some other abilities as well? However it looks ...

What's strange is that it's not all that hard to believe. I think of this development much like the Fuji Kujaka- Ruri'iru Kujaka thing. It's just that the spirit inside him was suppressing the power without his knowledge.
However, I would like to po ...

Here's a question: with the new zanpakutou, are they going to have to redo the bankai training? I thought it took 10 years to achieve it unless you use Urahara's method. ...

actually, he sealed hal of kurama into himself and then he was sealed himselfinto the shinigami.
The shinigami technique IS the seal he used to split and contain the kyuubi. If he sealed the kyuubi inside himself with a different technique, there' ...

Okay, I get Minato having the Kyuubi chakra inside his body... that was a side-effect of using the shiki fuujin (They have to fight each other forever inside the death god), except for the fact that Orochimaru broke the seal so that he could summon them. If the Kyuubi ...

So now he will get his own Asauchi-based Zanpakutou. I guess the old Zangetsu was formed from whatever remnants were left of the original Shinigami whom Aizen used for his little experiment? This would make sense of the context of the ...

Has ichigo really lost his powers? He's still got the ability to take Shinigami form, and he definitely still has the spiritual power. But without his zanpakutou, he can't shape it or direct it in anyway.
I always wondered why no one eve ...

Im pretty sure he collapsed do to the awakening of the Mangekyou Sharingan and quite possibly the shock of killing Rin mixed with it.
It could be the awakening, or it could be that he over-used Raikiri. His limit when he was teaching Sasuke was 3-a ...

Yes, but if using Kamui is degrading Kakashi's eye (which he basically implied to Itachi when he fought the clone like 300 chapters ago (...when Chiyo was with him)), why wouldn't Tobi using Kamui constantly make him blind? Plus, his mask used to only ...

I have a sinking feeling that the villages aren't going to be separated again after the war (because they've learned to cooperate and be friends)... leaving perhaps one kage to rule all five villages or a small council to control them all, or perhaps a com ...

By strength and skill standards, Shikimaru is severely lacking. He may be a tactical genius, but that was never the qualifying factor for the position of hokage.
The reason the geneology is the way it has been is because strength breeds strength. The first and secon ...

Danzo was a student of the second, as was the third. They were from the two clans that first joined Konoha after the Uchiha and Senju.
Danzo was with an Uchiha and an Akimichi that I have forgotten the names of with the second hokage, while Hiruzen was with th ...

So does Masaki die and become a hollow or die and stay a quincy? Either way, where the heck is she?
That Grand Fisher thing is confusing everything about this series. At the beginning of the story, soul + eaten by hollow = 2 hollows. Then Grand Fisher happened ...

A reason why madara sensed it so fast was probably because he has hashirama's cells inside him that reacted or something whereas naruto didn't notice.

But can a human be turned into a hollow?
I would say technically yes, because a human soul that gets eaten by a hollow becomes a hollow. Whether a living human can be changed into a hollow is less clear -- Orihime got bitten by her brother, and even thoug ...
