In one of the new Bleach novels, We Do knot Always Love You, two characters took several days traveling from one of Seireitei's gate's entrance to a barrack in Seireitei (the 7th Division barrack). They describe traversing mountainous terrain and forest as well over the course of several days. Here is the quote:

“Uncle gave us cloth to hide our faces, so we wore that and walked through Rukongai for several days……we were then concealed inside a wooden box and loaded onto a cart before a huge gate.”

"To start with, we thought we should meet Tetsu san, we asked uncle about the location of the 7th division. In order to not be discovered by people, we only traveled at night time, we passed through mountainous terrain and forests……on the night of the third day, in the middle of the forest we detected the scent of a fellow wolf……!”

So they walked for several days in the Rukongai until they arrived at one of Seireitei's gates, they entered Seireitei, and from there it took them three nights of traveling until they arrived at the 7th squad barrack.

Even if you say that they walked each night for 5 hours at the average walking speed (5 km/h), that's still 75 kilometers.

Also, the novels are canon. Kubo is a co-writer and the novels develop multiple characters and resolve a lot of the unresolved plot threads from the manga.

So, what do you guys thinks of this?

@ovy7:

Just keeps proving that’s the seretei isn’t just “city” sized and supports the 40 day diameter statement.

@leothegreatest: Yep, but I still see how people would try to deny it using the Seireitei's scans, even though those are very inconsistent.

It doesn't matter anymore, people will continue to lowball Bleach.

"Ichigo isn't mountain level" = Comicvine "That's not lowballing!"

"The Seretei is island to country-sized" = Comicvine "You're a Bleach wanker!"

Bump. Wow its funny how a lot of people don't even pay attention to this beautiful post cuz they will want to keep lowballing bleach.

Now where are those bleach haters and naruto wa*kers?? U won't find them comment on this thread cuz they know the truth hurts.

I agree, sereitei should be the size of a large island or small country. This just proved yourichi's statement.

I've been meaning to read the novels, but I'm hoping for an official translation.

Mountainous terrain and forests can still be within a 12 km diameter.
