So when the Ichigo team went to the Hueco Mondo to save Orihime, they befriended Nel and her so called brothers and their pet. Nel introduces her self as an Arrancar and Ichigo says that she has the Arrancar reiatsu, but we don't see her carrying a Zanpakoto, aren't Arrancars hollows that broke their masks and GAINED SHINIGAMI POWERS? so is Nel realy an Arrancar?

    yes she is. be aware that if you haven't seen past the rematch with Grimmjow then the explanation of why you haven't seen her Zanpakuto and the dinfinitive evidence that she is an Arrancar would be a major spoiler

    if your talking about the season with Rurichiyo then just to point out they haven't returned. that season is non-canon and the next season after that takes off right after Grimmjow's defeat where they are still in Hueco Mondo. (i actually forgot that other people whats the filler seasons). it's this season i was referring to that has the spoiler evidence about Nel

Yes. Neliel Tu Odelschwanck is an arrancar. She may not have a zanpakto but she has a mask and some what of a regenerative ability with her drool. The only reson she is a child is because Espada 5 split her mask, sealing her powers.


Yes, of course she is. If she isn't, she wouldn't be wearing an arrancar mask on her head and she wouldn't have the ability to absorb Cero in her mouth, which is called "Cero Doble" (which is Spanish for "Double Zero").
