Hey all, it's been a while since I posted here but I found some information about the "Cant Fear Your Own World," novel there's a lot of interesting information. It's as easy as 1-2-3. Spoiler: Reveals of Can't fear your own world. Part 1: Yhwach's corpse is the new Soul King. Squad Zero put a lot of barriers and seals into it and transported him to the Soul Palace. It is heavily implied that something similar happened to the old Soul King. Yhwach is not gone for good and still has an influence over the world. Of course no one knows what actually happened between him and Kazui, why it happened and what the consequences of that will be The general population doesn't know that the Soul King they are protecting or worshiping is now Yhwach. They were told that Squad Zero successfully protected the Soul King and that he never died. Shunsui and Ichibee initially planned to make Ichigo the next Soul King. They would have cut him up. Shunsui didn't like it much, Ichibee didn't care. He only trained Ichigo for that in the first place and honestly didn't expect him to win. He joked that the only downside would be that it would be a bit boring if Ichigo could not speak for all eternity. That's also what the soul tickets were there for. The reason he did not become the linchpin was, because Yhwach had decided to change his plans and absorb the Soul King after seeing Mimihagi out of fear that he could be devoured by his father. Ukitake's sacrifice and Yhwach's plans saved Ichigo. The history and origins of Soul Society are all based on lies. The actions of Squad Zero regarding the truth and the Soul King will be judged in ten (the epilogue) or 100 (when Soul Society is going to have 100 days without night thanks to Ichibee) years The ancestors of the five noble families committed an original sin regarding the Spirit King and it is their will that Squad Zero obeys to, not the Spirit King. It's one of the reasons why Aizen was so angry at the end of Deicide. Shunsui himself hates the ancestors and Ichibee. Squad Zero actually died, but was revived with the same trick as Ichibee. The reason for this is that they are kinda fused through the Oken with the Soul Palace. Nel rescued Harribel, who was transported alongside the rest of Yhwach's castle to the Royal Realm. She couldn't be rescued because she was in Yhwach's throne room. Kira is still a zombie and the events of the 13th Blade story actually happened The relationship between Quincy and Shinigami will improve and enter a new age thanks to the death of both kings. Lille survived the fight against Kira and the destruction of the Seretei and caused trouble for several days. Eventually the birds were removed from the Seretei. It's unknown what that means for him and what his ultimate status is. Shuutara's invention was most likely the Shinigami uniform Orihime's power has three limits: She can't heal someone who had mortal wounds for a long time, though the exact time frame is unknown, at least the duration of a night, was no problem for her. She can't revive someone whose body and Reiatsu are gone. And of course her mental will and stamina will affect how strong her healing powers are. Kensei and Rose were actually dead. Mayuri's science is just that good. Though it took almost six months to revert these two back. C46 has only few members left and did many reforms. Their leader is Nayura (from the Kira short story). Half of them were killed by Shaz Domino and many of the survivors resigned. There is actually a council of nobles that is above C46 Ichigo got his powers back within a short time Tosen knew the truth behind Soul Society, it's why he sided with Aizen in the first place Komamura is still a wolf Ryuken is financing Uryuu's studies, but beyond that their relationship and what happened to the dads after their sons got jobs is not known (from We do (knot) always love you). Part 2: Hitsugaya became a captain two to seven years before the story The Tsunayashiro family is the fourth member of the five grand noble families Tosen's friend is called Kakyou. Her husband Tokinada was a minor member of the Tsunayashiro family and thus not punished by the law for his crime Part 3: Hisagi got his motorbike back. Presumably Yamamoto couldn't keep it confiscated after his death. Ginjou is an acquaintance of the Shiba family. He, Tsukishima and Giriko are living there as freeloaders. They kept their clothes and weapons because of their ability to manipulate souls. The death of Kaien and Isshin's disappearance were major contributions to the fall of the Shiba family Tsukishima cannot create new people in memories. He can only insert himself and/or replace others. Ginjou was innocent. A Shinigami was sent to assassinate him. That Shinigami killed all of Ginjou's friends and Ginjou killed him in a fit of rage. Finding out about that plus the truth behind the Shinigami badge led to him rebelling. He went to the Seretei during the final arc in order to know the truth. But thanks to the Kamikake Ukitake was dead and could not speak. Ginjou still doesn't know why someone would want to assassinate him. It's implied the order came from high above. Ukitake is a major suspect and Ginjou believes it was him, but so far there is no confirmation. Part 4: Hanatora's brother Seinosuke is alive. He is medical attendant for the Great noble families Shino (the female Shinigami substitute and partner of Yuki, that Ichigo saved in the beginning of the final arc) is the little sister/cousin of Ikkaku. Her full name is Shino Madarame. Her Zanpakto is a Naginata Shino and Ikkaku lost their parents at a young age in the Rukongai. Because they were shifted from one family member to another, they actually don't know whether they are brother and sister or cousins. Ikkaku eventually decided to become a Shinigami and Shino followed him. He was immediately accepted into Squad 11. Shino had to go to the academy first until she was accepted into Squad 13. It's unknown how Yumichika fits into this. The earthquakes that the death of the Soul King caused, led to the rise of several religious end-time sects. The founder of one rather popular one is lead by a woman of the name Michibane Aura. Yukio became the boss of his company after six months and thanks to his experience with Ichigo in the final two arcs, he decided to use it to help humanity and make a better world. Yukio's company is also evolving into a feeding ground to gather Fullbringer from all over the world, starting with Riruka and Jackie. Part 5: Rudborrn Chelute is alive. He used to serve under Barragan, but is content with both Aizen's and Harribel's rule because they brought order and rules into Hueco Mundo. He feels indebted to them for that reason. He also has the big dream of creating a pan-Arrancar nation that governs all of Hueco Mundo. The sight of Grimmjow, Nel and Harribel working together left him rather emotional and made his heart cry in joy. Loly and Menoly were degraded to become part of the Exequias. The three worked together with Orihime and co. probably and defeated the majority of the Jagdarmee, who either used guerilla tactics or suicide attacks. During Harribel's absence the hidden Vasto Lorde came to the surface and tried to become the new ruler. Rudbonn did not participate in the throne games, but repeatedly asked Grimmjow to help maintain order. He refused to fight small fry, as he himself put it in. Once Harribel and Grimmjow returned after the war was over, the Vasto Lorder went back to their own colonies, disappointed. The events of Sprits are forever with you are referenced, making them canon. Ruddbon learned from his fight with Rukia. He can now produce his branches underground to avoid them getting frozen. He also managed to increase the production rate significantly. He can produce thousands of Calaveras within seconds. He, like a Quincy absorbs Reishi in order to create the Calaveras. They also learned new tactics, like using their sheer numbers to create formations and figures, like tentacles. Grimmjow became a better person. All of Hueco Mundo changed for the better actually. Liltotto, Giselle and Bambietta are alive. Bambietta just wants Giselle's blood. Nothing perverted, probably. The reason for Bambietta's fragmented speech is that her injuries are not quite healed. Giselle could use her blood to do that, but thinks Bambietta is cuter that way and delays the healing process. She can think clearly actually, but because of her injuries (most likely because Giselle bashed her head), her ability to think has been degraded. They were rescued by Haschwalth's aide under Haschwalth's orders. Right after acquiring the Almighty, Haschwalth decides to order the evacuation and treatment of every Quincy outside the Schutzstaffel. This explains why Giselle's and Liltotto's bodies were not seen during Yhwach's fight with Ichigo and Orihime. Many Quincy were saved by Haschwalth's aide. It's actually quite possible that some Sternritter are among them, like Bazz-B and BG9. Haschwalth's aide believes that the Schutzstaffel is gone, though she doesn't know that Lille actually turned into birds. The Wandenreich HQ is in the human world. Whatever Haschwalth saw in the future changed him. He only described it as cruel. He willingly decided play both sides in order to balance the odds. He knew that Yhwach would sacrifice him, but Haschwalth saw it as a fitting punishment and sacrifice for his behavior. He knew that this would be his fate, but he went to the battlefield anyway. He wanted to fight Uryuu and see what drives him, for when it comes to Uryuu, Haschwalth is shaken with emotion. Haschwalth's aide is stronger than some of the Sternritter, but does not posses a Schrift, because she only wants to serve Haschwalth, but not Yhwach. She is the strongest archer within the Wandenreich. It seems that she is now ruling over the Wandenreich. Bambietta is still a zombie. She was never brainwashed or mind-controlled. Zombie Bambietta is the real Bambietta's personality. Behind her though facade is simply a meek and scarred little girl. Her encounter with Komamura deeply traumatized and she suffers from PTSD, so much that she forgets that she is already dead. It's possible that Giselle is highly intelligent and could rival Mayuri. It's just that she is too lazy to actually bother using much strategy. She is also a social expert, able to easily read other people and know what buttons she has to push in order to provoke them (or in Bambietta's case to make her break down and cry) The Glutton has more abilities. Liltotto can recover Reiryoku with her ability and like Aaroniero, she can actually use the abilities of the things she consumed. She can use the poison of Loly after she consumed part of her body. She combines Loly's poison with Licht Regen to create a rain of poison, which is just awesome. She also can use Pepe's Love and considered it using against Yhwach, but thought it would be useless. Apparently how things taste depend on what Liltotto thinks of their personalities. At the very least there seems to be a connection between taste and personality. Pepe tasted disgusting. Ruddbon appeared for Liltotto as more tasty than the tasteless Calaveras. Loly tasted quite good and spicy. Giselle actually got nicer. Just a little bit. She doesn't hurt Bambietta anymore. Though psychological domination is still fine for her. Liltotto outright refers her as an S-type. But Giselle truly doesn't understand why Liltotto would describe her as a sadist. The power that Yhwach steals will return over time. Only exception is Vollständig. Ryuken and Uryuu may be able to use Sklaverei. Every Sternritter can, but only in Vollständig. Mayuri collected the dead bodies of several Sternritter. Confirmed so far are Meninas, Candice and NaNaNa. Part 6: The nobles are living within their own city Byakuya is not very popular with the general population. None of the current great nobles are like. Except Yoruichi. Everyone likes Yoruichi. The higher nobles in general are not very popular. Exceptions like the Omaedas exist. Mayuri's Zanpakto Sex change device is canon. Omaeda is a ladies man. Hisagi and Renji not so much. Ukitake's exact involvement in the Ginjou incident is even unknown to Shunsui, but he is at least guilty of not interfering and just standing by. The reputation of Squad 4 increased significantly thanks to their efforts during the war. The reason for the fall of the Shiba family lies in the distant past. The Kaien and Isshin incidents were just the last straws. Yoruichi was the one who decided Yuushiro should become her successor. The noble families have an authority that is independent of Squad Zero and lies above them (even the Shiba retain that, as seen when Squad Zero had to ask for their permission to use the canon). The Tsunayashiro family is the most important of the noble families. Part 7: Mashiro and the girl with the glasses from the 12th division (the one who asked about the previous Nemus) are sisters. Mayuri has reanimated the dead Sternritter. Outside of the three that were already mentioned, these are the Sternritter, whose bodies Mayuri could have possibly collected: Haschwalth, Bazz-B (if dead), BG9 (if dead), Cang Du, Askin, Gremmy, Nianzol Arrancar get progressively stronger through battles The Negar ruins (the place Orihime met up with Chad and the Arrancar between the invasions) are actually a man-made stone temple built in ancient times. It's unknown what happened to the ancient civilization that built the temple or who the god of Hueco Mundo was (it's most likely not Barragan though). Soul Society is a fake world, a charade built upon lies, by the ancestors of the five noble families. The Soul King was always trapped and deprived of his power since the very beginning. The last time, the five great noble families met was 1000 years ago. It's made more and more ambiguous if Yhwach is truly dead and if the Soul King before him was actually alive. Urahara and Aizen knew about that. Yoruichi did not. Many people from the real world experience a crisis of faith once they realize that Soul Society isn't exactly paradise. Hisagi is poor because Urahara overcharges the prices for fuel for his motorbike. Tosen met Aizen for the first time shortly after Kakyou's funeral. He saved Tosen from the beatdown of Tokinada's guards.
