Laying out the the backstory of the Soul King (Reio) in its entirety
[2] [3]

  • Also about when the Shiba family were 'demoted'. It was said in the novels that Isshin was still a soul reaper and wanted to visit Rukia when Kaien died in order to console her but he didn't: And another novel said that after Isshin left, that is when the family was broken up and demoted: I made a timeline post and in my dropbox link I put my timeline guide and terminology guide there with references to where some details were said:

    • It should be noted that if 5 families > C46, then it was the central 46 that demoted them, as if the 5 families had said "No. We cannot permit such thing for a noble family", then it would have just been brushed off.

    • @Slevin Channel You're entitled to your opinion, but the themes of why the soul king can be both for and against the shinigami are clear. One hand "pernida" is clearly in favor of the quincy, Mimihagi is in favor of the shinigami. This was very intentional, proving that the soul king could have very well been for and against the soul society at the same time. It's likely he wanted to protect the realms and wanted to go on with the noble house's plans, but that he resents the fact that he was cut into tons of pieces. The SS both protects and destroys, it's a corrupt organization that keeps the world from devolving into chaos, so I don't see why when parts of him are split and given their own identity they wouldn't pick sides.

    • All this Backstory revealed outside of the Manga is so freaking convcoluded. It's amazing. This whole backstory of the world way in the past... it's like from a whole other franchise. It's dumb as all heck. The Manga alone has Plot Holes about the Soul King, like Yhwachs statements that he's the bloody Enemy of the Shinigami. And also Statements about the exact opposite. (Lol). A lot of nonsense just there. But the Novels or where it was really add a whole Amount of Nonsense to it, so that it does not even feel like the same Franchise anymore. It's not even Bleach. Wow.

    • Ichibei was planning on making Ichigo the new Spirit King. Such an action would've entailed him being ritualistically mutilated and his hybrid power harvested, something worse than death. Shunsui, Urahara, Isshin and several others knew about this and obviously didn't like it but went along because it might have spelled the worlds collapsing into each other without such a battery. Of course that may not even be true at all given the wide range of lies regarding the truth about Soul Society's game with the Spirit King. It's been implied that controlling the Spirit King is the way Soul Society's aristocracy maintains their power so make of that what you will.

  • So if Gerard all ready had his power why did Yhwach have to resurrect him after he got one shotted by the squad zero zanpakuto blacksmith dude? They were completely outclassed at that point so why wouldn’t his miracle kick in after that. He has to get brought back by the holy selection thing. Then again trying to fill all the plot holes in bleach would take forever. I still love the series, even though it doesn’t make any sense sometimes lol

  • While no longer a Christian in the sense of what Christians describe themselves as: I see a 'possibly' intended parallel. The Soul King appeared to be God. While in Bleach he wasn't the first: the world he came from was BEFORE the world (of the living). He (through the 5 families efforts) created Soul Society, and Hueco Mundo. Perhaps not through a power too unlike the one Fullbringer kid who could create dimensions. The Christians would ascribe a number of somewhat incredible, somewhat tragic abilities to God. While I won't mirror all of these onto the Soul King because most aren't applicable, perhaps he had a actual infinite (or nearly so) amount of Spiritual Pressure/Energy. Certainly The Almighty (and the name itself insinuates a link with the alias of Yahweh) conveys Omnipotence/Omnipresence/Omniscience. Of course there is a double-edged effect to combining these with some of the other attributes from the link above: and likely intended to be similar to those of the Soul King. That being: fate is inescapable even as God: in fact, as God he's kinda more screwed by fate than anybody/anything else. As an 'infinite' (or if you look at The Endless of Gaiman's Sandman), 'Endless' as a better description rather than infinite, while his powers may have been endless or potentially so; so too was the restrictions of 'the primordial reality'. It goes beyond seeing your own death, it is thinking that there may be 'evil' or 'righteous' actions, and being unable to choose your own actions as that'd stray from the middle path (Buddhist concept sort of). The rate of Time in the Dangai vs the other worlds also indicates the temporal powers of the Soul King, which is a interesting one as not too many powers (other than like Tsukashima's) exhibited control over time. Now obv the Soul King abhorred and sought to destroy hollows, but that itself isn't evidence of a more subtle fact that it may have been 'somewhat' involuntary. If we look within Bleach this wouldn't be unprecedented as Bankais like Shunsui's and some other abilities 'force' the user or others in proximity to come under the influence etc. Emphasizing a lack of will. Fate itself insinuates a 'true' lack of free-will in the grander picture. It is interesting to note that Hell was primordial, as was the Garganta. But unrelated to my point. The more interesting thing being the Garganta, and that that it is true oblivion sort of with the different dimensions being bubbles and the Garganta being the actual ocean (of nothingness).

  • I like your video keep up the good work!!! I wanted to comment on the "asspull" part on Kubo's work. The problem with his world is that novels are used to fill us in small details in the main story, what Bleach novels do is explaining all the things that were totally unreasonable in the main story (I read bleach since it got firstly serialized and really after Aizen I believe it should have ended). So bleach world is a really good and interesting, the manga has the problem.

  • My personal theory: Before the soul circulation was established, everyone who commits crimes would be sent to the hell no matter what. After the evolving world was created, only sins carried out by human beings matter, which means a soul can literally do anything without worrying about being throw into the hell. The creation of the current world frame gives powerful souls the freedom to have their way.

  • honestly if Yhwach is the SK's son he's got the biggest daddy issues ever. He's essentially a child throwing a fit because daddy didn't pay him enough mind. The only difference is that Yhwach's fit almost cost the universe it's entire existance. Great job SK, you raised a real good kid.

    IcyPrincess215IcyPrincess215Il y a 2 mois
    • So far off. The truth is The SK was betrayed and split by the noble houses and Ichibei to create their ideal world regardless of who if affected to get to that point yet they shun Aizen and Yhwach for working to achieve the same thing, because this time it'd be them on the chopping block. Soul Society is a farce and Yhwach only sought to end his fathers enternal humiliation.

  • I think boiling down orihime's powers to just be a fullbringer is kind of stupid. They activate in a similar way, and supposedly are a fullbring in some sense but there is so much more to it. Hachi simultaneously states that her hairpins acting as a vessel of independent spirits is much like a zanpakuto, while the actual abilities themselves acted like high level kido. The seeds of fullbring abilities having some connection to hollows is clearly stated by chad, that in hueco mundo his power was fluctuating, surging and evolving. As if his powers had gone home. Yet at no point does something similar happen with orihime. She never claims that her powers began behaving differently, or even felt any different. I suppose that my head canon that I just came up with is that while they similarly manifest as a result of containing a piece of the soul king within themselves, her power is more "pure" than a fullbring because there was no indication her mother was attacked by hollows when she was pregnant and thus her reiatsu is not contaminated.

Regarding misspeaks I sometimes just can’t be f’ed to re-record especially when I’ve went through several retakes. Sorry. The Shuhei animation and the rest was already a Bit** and half to produce and edit. The whole part of the fullbringers I had to redo because I forget to place Aura’s ability to control people. Even shuhei Bankai I had to redo because I messed up the sequence of transformation and had to recheck the sequence from the novels. Plus, I didn’t post for long time so I was eager to post. You can even observe how only the first part had music. While I don’t generally want to fill out my videos with music. This video was intended to have more. All in all I thought “Ya’ll just gotta have to watch the video this way”

  • Would you please create a video detailing how Ichigo Kurosaki or as we found at the end of the manga his true name being Ichigo Shiba fits into all of this? You were talking about soul fragments of the soul king and those that contain them but Ichigo wasn't brought up. Surely he must have one or several give his hybrid nature as he has or been noted as having or wielding the powers of fullbring, Quincy (via inheritance from his mother) and Shinigami (via inheritance from his father) and it is my personal yet humble opinion that his true Zanpakuto contains the power of all three. As such, I would like to know your thoughts on this either through video response or response to this comment. Thank you in advance. Great video!😎😁🤯👍👍👍👍

    • Forgot to add ichigo XD. (As per the Novels) Since all fullbringers have a soul king fragment. If ichigo is a fullbringer that applies to him as well. I’m not sure what you want to know fits with the information that ichigo is a shiba. As you’ve mentioned, in the manga isshin details how he is a shiba and that’s pretty much how we knew.

  • So if I'm understanding this right. Fullbringers are essentially "alternative Quincies". Fullbringers contain a fragment of the Soul King. Quincies all contain a fragment of Ywach within them, which is why he can revoke their powers at will with the auschwalen. A Quincy's most fundamental and most powerful ability is reishi enslavement, or reishi domination, basically the ability to manipulate reishi at will. A Fullbringer's most fundamental ability is soul manipulation which is the same thing, but replacing "reishi" with "soul". This seems to also be the soul king's main power as he is literally the one who transports souls through the realms and keeps the cycle of reincarnation going. "Soul" is apparently more fundamental than reishi since inanimate objects in the physical realm do not contain reishi but apparently do have souls. Perhaps "soul" is a collective term from both reishi(spirit particles) and kishi(bleach's term of physical particles). Which would make sense as it basically means the soul king's powers are slightly more all-encompassing that Ywach's powers.

It's dumb as all heck. The Manga alone has Plot Holes about the Soul King, like Yhwachs statements that he's the bloody Enemy of the Shinigami. And also Statements about the exact opposite. (Lol). A lot of nonsense just there. But the Novels or where it was really add a whole Amount of Nonsense to it, so that it does not even feel like the same Franchise anymore. It's not even Bleach. Wow.

I think you will because you take things too literally, Karin might not even know who soul king is or might have misunderstood things but you will think she is actual soul king,

    • He was a branch member of the shiba family not a leader position and the shiba clan was already one of the confirmed clans not the unknown one.

  • hold on, if a soul king is human-reaper-quincy and hisfragments give powers to mortals, then it is not necessarily reio the soul king who gave sado and inoue their powers. there is one more character that is human-reaper-quincy and it could be his fragments that grant power. which would be consistent with the suspicion urahara had about the source of their powers.
