In the Bleach manga-volume 57, chapter 502, page 56-you see

Byakuya on a wall with blood splattered everywhere, and a man with white hair (sorry for me not knowing his name; I have yet to actually read the manga, besides the first three volumes) says, "It seems Byakuya Kuchiki is dead."

My question is: is Byakuya really dead, here, or does he come back and whatnot? This scene looks as though he is, but we've seen desperate situations-like this-in the past chapters (or episodes) of Bleach where the character isn't truly dead; they come back later making a dramatic entrance, looking even more badass than before. See what I mean?

This CAN'T be the end for Byakuya Kuchiki. It just can't!

    Hmm... you could answer with a "yes/no". Hahaha. I'm not looking for anything complicated; this is just something my sister and I wanted to know ASAP. And I'm sure anybody else who wants the answer doesn't want anything complicated, but put enough so that the people here don't delete your answer. -_- Go ahead and make it a spoiler. ;) Jan 3 '16 at 4:32

You should probably just live with the dramatic tension as you keep reading through the series. That being said...

The short answer:

He gets better.

The slightly longer answer:

He gets better. And gets a power-up.

The longer, more detailed answer:

He hangs on by a thread. And then Squad Zero--recall we heard about them during the Turn Back The Pendulum arc--shows up when the Quincies leave. One of them takes Byakuya and a few others with them up to the Royal Palace. Byakuya and a few others then get healed up, equipped, and trained in the Royal Palace.

I left a fair amount of details out of the above, so some things won't be spoiled, but it still spoils a fair amount even in its vague brevity.


Kuchiki Byakuya didn't die here.

He was saved by the zero division.

And he shows up in chapter 655.

  • Does that mean he doesn't show up UNTIL then. Jan 3 '16 at 7:01
  • No, he shows up before that too. That chapter is just an example proof that he is still alive. Jan 3 '16 at 7:03
  • Do you know which chapter he first appears in, again?? Jan 3 '16 at 7:30
