Bleach 412 – Deicide 14 (why is it taking so long to kill a god dammit!? Do we need to lend them a copy of The Gutsy Ninja?)
*walks in whistling and looks over at the Naruto section*
Whoa its chaos over there! I’m glad I ain’t the one doing the Naruto Breakdowns, right Pickles? Getting Kamehameha’d and cero’d isnt good for my hair :). Once again its Kisuzachi welcoming you to another Ripthismangaoff breakdown, also known in some circles as Bleach (please don’t hurt me T^T). Well, without further adieu
The chapter starts off from where last week’s ended (this has got to be a first in months). Anyway, Rangiku spends much of the first part of the chapter convincing Don Kanonji to escape, but Kanonji…being well Kononji decides he’ll stick around. But after some choice words from Rangiku he finally decides to leave. Now the one thing that caught my attention here is Tatsuki. Two homicidal maniacs with enough power to level the city are standing there and she finds time to be mad at Ichigo for having a cute friend lol, women *hides from female readers*…
*comes out from hiding place in medieval armor* So now that they’re all alone, Aizen-sama goes back to being Aizen-sama and starts his usual Hannibal Lecture , but because it was so short this chapter, it gets demoted to being a maniacal-monologue-mind-rape. He tells her it doesnt matter if she’s there are not, it wont change a thing, and he’s right. Rangiku is just a Lieutenant and even if she does have a Bankai, it means nothing against a man that destroyed all the Captains. So then, why could she be there? HA! It must be because of Gin! She’s gonna convince Gin to turn on Aizen, that must be it! Then Tite confirms what we’re thinking when Gin asks Aizen for some alone time with her and then does this:
so now we’re all hyped up on Gin-giku juice, thinking they’ll form a plan and work together, but then Bleach surprises us. It actual did a decent plot twist. But I’m getting ahead of myself. First Rangiku and Gin have a little discussion. Rangiku tells him how she got there, which at first sounded like little more than gibberish, but let me explain. After Aizen and Gin left, Rangiku followed them into the Sekaimon (or Senkai gate). But due to the differences in time, she arrived a lot later than they did, and since it’s common knowledge that Aizen wants to create the King’s Key, she figured he would be going to Karakura town. But Gin tells her he didn’t care about how she got there, he wants to know why she’s there, especially considering the condition her body’s in. She then asks why he is working for Aizen and why he would betray Izuru, but Gin shrugs it off in his usual manner. Then comes the shocker of this chapter:
Gin gets up close and personal with Rangiku and puts Shinso to her neck. This wont end well…:(
The scene then changes to Kanonji and Ichigo’s pals. Keigo conveniently walks out of an alley when all the action’s done (we still love you Keigo!). I gotta say, I thought Tite was gonna say Keigo’s a Shinigami cuz then I’d be like “WTF over 9000”, but it turns out its just Afro’s zanpakuto. What’s funny here is that a Shinigami with a Shikai doesnt have enough Reiatsu to wake up, while mere humans with zero fighting ability do. This either means poor Zennosuke is unimaginably weak (not likely since he was put in charge f protecting Karakura Town) or Kubo just forgot. Anyway, we learn Keigo picked it up because Aizen is nearing them, but it really means nothing because only the owner can use its Shikai, and Tsuchinamazu (the Zanpakuto) isnt powerful enough to do a thing right here. The scene then goes back to Rangiku lying on the roof of a building with a bloody neck.
The last page pretty much sums up itself. Isshin is being drained, and by the looks of him (and the fact that he’s wondering why Ichigo is taking so long), it seems the 3 months are almost up, which in turn means, its almost a whole hour since Aizen has been in Real Karakura town. We also see blood running from Ichigo’s mouth, which probably means he losing….badly..,but that’s the story of Ichigo’s life isnt it? See you all next week!
