Bleach 435 – Ichigo Plays With Riruka’s Pink Special Thing O_O

The Hogyouku. Those who possess it no longer bound by the law of “Good Characterization” in Literature. They troll without thought. Exist without “Good Characterization”. We wanted it, and we were trolled by it.
No character can be completely perfect if the writer wishes to make money. To have Mary Sues, authors must be willing to go bankrupt. That is Literature’s first law of “Good Characterization”. In those days we really believed that to be the world’s one and only truth.
Spot the reference? 😉 Here’s this week’s AMV.
Hello and welcome to Kisu’s Bleach Breakdown of chapter 435.
First of all, lemme point out something.
- I just want to call that Ichigo is going to use his Substitute Shinigami Badge as his tool that changes forms because of his bond with it. devourerofmemes said this on January 4, 2011 at 7:46 pm (edit)
Now I’m going to steal that guy’s thunder by saying “Sooooo what if you typed it first? Every1 alrdy new tht a-hole!1!!11! Tollololol”. Seriously though, good prediction devourerofmemes. All I got to say is….I liked this chapter. A lot. You see, with One Piece and Naruto pumping so much adrenalin now, I’m glad Bleach has come out of that phase for the time being. I mean, just how long was the Bleach war going on, since 2008 I believe? I like the slow pace right now, its just mindless entertainment with little tidbits of information every now and again.
The chapter starts with Riruka giving a more detailed explanation of her powers. Apparently, Fullbring is an “Ability of Love”, where you use an object that you’ve bonded with to do cool (for lack of a better word) stuff. Ginjou’s explanation sounded more manly, but it’s nice to hear how Riruka thinks of it. Well we did learn something new here. Ginjou worded it as if they can only bond with one item, but according to Riruka they can bond with an infinite number of items, but Ginjo just chooses the pendant of his.
Kubo once said he draws comedy in the manga when he’s bored, but its just really forced, silly slapstick. The true comedy in Bleach comes in surreal, pseudo-serious situations like this. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not taking any of this seriously, maybe that’s why I’m enjoying it so much. It also seems Kubo is having fun with it as well. I say enjoy it while it lasts, because when the next battle starts there wont be many chances to (like with Soul Society Arc, Fake Karakura Arc and the Arrancar Arc).
Anyway, its revealed Riruka kidnapped some Yakuza thug (its really fun how casually she says this after all kidnapping isn’t a major offense anyway :P) and threw him into her teddy pig. She tells Ichigo to fight it using Fullbring and that she can’t give him much advice on how to pull it out since they were all pretty much born with full knowledge of how to use their powers.
Eventually Chad shows up after going shopping for the Butler dude and sees that they’ve already started Ichigo’s training. He freaks out and runs over to the dollhouse then tells Ichigo to use his Substitute Shinigami badge as his Fullbring item, which, by that point was pretty obvious really. The chapter ends with the 15 minutes the doll was talking about ending as it transforms into an ogre-like-brute-pig-thingy due to a timer Riruka put on it.
I’m really liking this Arc. One of the main reasons, no, THE main reason I liked this chapter was Riruka. At first I thought she’d be the average annoying Bleach female, but she’s a pretty cool character. She’s what Hiyori was supposed to be in my opinion. I’m hoping Kubo doesn’t ruin her character with unnecessary slapstick “comedy”, because that’s one of the reasons I don’t like Hiyori. By the way, just how old is Riruka anyway? Shouldn’t her parents be worried or something? And isn’t she a bit too young for Ichigo to be calling her a “bitch” lol. But most importantly, there’s this dirty little line she said:
“My “doll house” ability allows me to take the things I’ve given “permission” to and freely insert and remove them to and from my favorite things!” O_O
Great chapter 😀
