Bleach 439 – DAT ART :O
Sup guys and gals? Lol what am I saying, everyone knows there are no girls on the internets.

No generic Rock music this week. No, this week is something special. My favoryte Bleach musiq evar (I like it so much it impairs my ability to spell correctly)!
Hello and welcome to Kisu’s Breakdown of Bleach 439.
That cover art is pretty good. I’d say its the best part of the chapter, but then I’d be breaking my New Year’s Resolution. Frick! Nothing really happened this chapter. I’m a bit disappointed, but I did enjoy some of it. Well, if you counted events and sentences as more content than just counting the pages, then I’d say I enjoyed most of the chapter, because even though Orihime and friends took up 9 pages, the first 7 pages had more content.
The chapter starts where last week’s left off, Ichigo and Pig Yakuza Guy getting freed. Pig Yakuza Guy wants compensation for his “services” (no double entendre intended…okay maybe a little) instead of getting the heck outta there. He apparently thinks Ichigo was abducted as well and is quite friendly with him, despite kinda trying to kill him a few chapters ago. Riruka says she aint paying and throws him a cellphone. He’s her bootycall now. Then she tells Ichigo to GTFO but he wants to stick around and train, not realizing his limits. Ginjou pwns him again and tells him his body wouldn’t be able to handle anymore training and that he should rest.
We head over to Orihime and Shishigawara (this guy’s name just reminds me of a certain pokemon let’s just hope he doesn’t use Spark) just in time to see… nothing happen. Basically, Tsukishima is telling this useless little pokemon to go home, but he refuses because he want’s to be useful, then Tsukishima proceeds to prepare to kill/punish him for disobeying orders. We also get to see Tsukishima is in fact human and possesses Fullbring, which is called “Book of the End”. So he and Ginjou possess a similar ability (Ginjou’s is cooler), creating a sword from a treasured item, but surely these swords are capable of more.
Anyway, when Tsukishima is about to raise his sword against Shishigawara Orihime intercepts him. Tsukishima thinks its because of Orihime’s love for all creatures, but apparently its because she wants to stop the guy that beat Uryu. I say it again, if this guy could beat Uryu (a man who utterly destroyed a Privaron Espada), then what makes Orihime think she stands a chance? Okay, enough of that, the focus then switches to Chad and Ichigo.
Chad and Ichigo are walking home together (totally not a date, just to get you yaoi fans out there to stfu) when Chad tells Ichigo to take half of the pastries Orihime usually leaves for him. When he touches the bag he feels something odd about her Reiatsu. Now I wonder why the bag would have her Reiatsu feeling different when she wasn’t holding it while all this was going on. It would’ve made more sense if Chad felt the residual Reiatsu left from a struggle.
The pacing was horrible. Nothing happened this chapter that couldn’t have happened in last week’s. Did that stop me from liking it? Nah. I just felt I needed to bitch a little with the lack of Bleach-bashing.
