To be more precise, about it's size.

According to Nell, from the point they broke in, it would take 3 days to walk to the door.

So I did some calculations, and the place would be really fucking huge !

3 days to the closest door. We can assume Las Noches is circular, so in the most extreme case, the door is on the opposite side from where they are now ( see crafty picture ).

3 days = 72 hours.

So you walk around Las Noches 2 x 72 hours = 144 hours

This is the circumference.

Now the formula for the circumference is 2xPixradius

so this is 144 = 2 x Pi(3.14) x radius

From this you can figure the radius out :

144/ ( 2 x 3.14 ) = 23 hours = radius

Now I'm getting to the point.

Hime is most probably at the center of Las Noches, in those towers.

So the radius is the point from the center to the outside border of the circle ( Las Noches ), you should all know this ( elementary maths ).

So it is gonna take them 23 hours to get to Hime.

Note that the placement of the door at the opposite side is the most opportunistic placement. If the door is not on the opposite side, but closer, then it is gonna take them even longer !

Well, it takes 10 days to walk from one Seireitei gate to the other. And that's only a quater of the circumference.

So Seireitei's radius = 40days/2 pi = 6.36 days.

Yet it took Ichigo and co. one week(I think they used up their last week of holiday) to complete the mission. Minus the three day bankai training and nearly a day worth of time for Ichigo's recuperation after each fights, we see that they were well ahead of schedule.

So I believe this mission will end rather quickly regardless whether they succeed in getting to Orihime or not.

Las Noches is square or rectangular, I'm not sure but I quite remember like that. A big rectangular palace with a big dome.

"3 days away" doesn't mean you have to continously walk 72 hours in order to get there. When you say something like that about "walking" instead of driving or flying, you mean things like camping, eating, sleeping, etc included.

can probably factor in the fact that I'd imagine Ichigo and Co will be moving considerably quicker than a normal sort of pace as well.

Other than that nice calculations

Anything that has any relation with maths is made of fail. Those calculations are no exceptions.

Yes I realize there are tons of variations possible.

Traveling speed, offcourse getting injured in a fight will also delay them, and I'm sure they ain't gonna be travelling in a direct path.

Trias, you're making me doubt ...

But if Las Noches is a square, and the door is on the oposing side of the square, it'll take 18 hours to get to the center.

I estimate they'll make the journey in 1-2 days, no more, no less.

Ichigo travels faster than Nell.

But otherwise there's far more reasons that will make the journey longer :

- the door likely isn't at the opposite side
- battles will delay them
- it's likely a maze, so taking a direct road won't be possible

This is also a reason NOT to have split up. Help just isn't possible.

Of course I do. I rock.

They can take a direct road in maze by smashing wall through a linear way.

But they are splitting up. Because new arc's plot sucks. Horribly. Swallows.

haha 3 days away on the opposite side is best-case scenario. if its a square, and the closest door is 3 days away on the same side of the wall... O.o las noches is humongous. but yeah, seireitei was pretty big too. however, in SS, they had the added benefit of being dropped inside seireitei, not goin in thru the gate.

however, who the heck is goin to really care if it takes them that long?

Agh. Maths...

So much confusion. And so much thinking. >_<

Though I have to mention this. What about how long it'll take to get up the tower?

It might take 23 hours to get to Hime, but then it'll take longer to get up the tower she's in, won't it?

You're attempting to apply physics to anime/manga. Stop it.

Arrrrgghghhhhhhh....maths......mine eyes! My beutiful innocent eyes!

Seriously though, when we saw Las Noches when Ichigo & crew left that bunker thing, it look big but not enough to take multiple days to walk around

It was like with the Seireitei, when it was first introduced, the manga had a diagram of it which made it look ridiculously small and I had the image in my head that it was like the size of a big suburb

didnt nell say "it is A door just 3 day walks from here" ??

if this is the case, then then we can asume that it is much larger than LotA counted on. in any way its enormus and you made a good point

They used the cannon the second time, so their starting positions were closer to the centre.

Byakuya with bobbed hair and a green jumpsuit. You know you want to see it...

I still don't get the point of las noches. Do the hollows live in it? If it's a place for the most massive hollows, why aren't the passages bigger?

Yes my estimate was the most favorable for ichigo and co. , there's no way to find out what the placement of the door is.
