No, it's just different. Funny, after 5 years of Spanish, I never knew what Arrancar was, so I looked in a dictionary, and it said that it means "to tear away" - Arrancars are hollows which tore off their masks, so that's pretty clever

It's got things like Huecco Mundo in it. Mr.Kubo seems to like writing his poems even they seem to have Spanish in the attacks used in Bleach. I could ask my best friend but I think shes scared of Bleach fillers..

I like the spanish refrences in bleach, and I am pretty sure in the bount arc that the bounr terms were German.

The Quincy terms are also in German.

I forgot about that! It would make sense since the Quincy's played a big part in the Bount Arc.

Actually, if I remember correctly. I think Kubo said in an interview that he's either been to Spain and loved it OR, that Spanish culture and language interest him. Which is why the Hueco Mundo arc had so much Spanish influence, (words anyway).

But yeah, I don't exactly remember which it is but he DID mention something like that. You might want to check his interviews.

Kubo said that he finds Spanish "mellow and bewitching" or something like that. That's why he uses Spanish for the Hollows.
