Bleach 432 – A Reasonably Good Attempt At Trying To Make An Entertaining Chapter By Our Favorite Troll Of A Mangaka, Tite Kubo. This Is Also Kisu’s Attempt At Breaking Tenrai’s Record For Longest Post Title. I Have This One In The Bag
Damn I wasn’t expecting any mangas to be released until 2011. Well I have a little time on my hands so I’ll give you guys a very short Breakdown this time around.
This chapter answered a lot of questions in my opinion.
1. I always wondered how Chad gaining an upgrade to his arm could’ve compensated for the speed difference between him and Gantenbainne, but this chapter made it clear. It wasn’t so much as the arm raised his speed, it was more like he gained more “dominance” over his environment, similar to a Quincy. Based on the info Ginjou gave, Chad must’ve used the high concentration of Spiritons in Hueco Mundo to help him speed up his movements, similar to a Quincy’s Hirenkyaku, so in a sense, these people are really just Quincies that don’t use arrows.
2. Humans can change the forms of tools they have a “bond” with. Chad originally changed the arm his grandfather gave him the Mexican coin in. Quincy have crosses they use to manifest their spirit bows. The Seele Schneider is also only a tool they manipulate to form a buzzsaw. Then there’s Orihime and her hair clips which she can transform into little pixie thingies. Ginjou changed a pendant into a BFS (Big F*cking Sword) this chapter and it looked freaking badass.
3. Apparently all things have souls, no matter how puny, even inanimate objects. I admit at first I was like “WTF?”, but then when the explanation was over it all started to make sense. This is how Soul Society repaired Karakura Town after Grimmjow’s Fraccion, Edrad Liones, and Ikkaku destroyed a small section of it. If spiritons weren’t involved I’d imagine it would be much harder for the Shinigami to repair it.
4. Chad showed up…AND HE’S NOT LYING IN A POOL OF HIS OWN BLOOD! BAH GAWD!
Plot Advancement: Ichigo learns about souls and meets Riruka.
Now I know what you may be thinking. “Why the hell is this so short and seems so rushed?” Well Kisu has an answer. I got very special help recently
Also of note: Kubo said Bleach will be going for at least 10 more years. Anyhoo, I hope you guys had fun on Christmas (hopefully not as much as I did, I’m still paying for it! T_T)
