Bleach 445 and 446 – Needs Moar Riruka
Taking a review from Naruto the Abridged Comedy Fandub Spoof Series Show, it fits perfectly with these two chapters. Yep, this review tops anything I could possibly say, just imagine it’s about Bleach.
Here’s this weeks AMV.
Hello and welcome to Kisu’s Double Bleach Breakdown. Sadly, I can still summarize this in two, maybe three paragraphs.
These two chapters were just a collection of fights, if you will. Tsukishima shows up and taunts everyone, but Ichigo takes the bait and gets ready to fight, however, Chad attacks first because he knows Ichigo isn’t anywhere near the level required to beat Tsukishima. Ichigo then goes in to battle with Tsukishima. Chad watches as he begins to analyze Ichigo’s power. He says that Ichigo’s Bankai always submerged him in power so it is only natural for his Fullbring to do so as well (remember the badge has kept a record of Ichigo’s battles), so he can fight the way he is most accustomed to.
As much of a Purveyor of Really Intellectual Criticism as I am, I gotta admit that the whole Tsukishima vs Ichigo fight was pretty cool. One glaring truth in their battle is that Ichigo keeps forgetting he’s in his human body. The Shinigami body is by far more durable (Hiyori survived being bifurcated from the waist for crying out loud) than the human body. Like Shinji said, it’s hard to change the way you fight when you’ve been doing it for a while, and I don’t think Ichigo is as skilled (or hax) as Aizen so he’ll be forgetting this in the foreseeable future as well.
Anyway, they appear to be evenly matched, well not really as Ichigo was putting a lot of effort into it while Tsukishima was casually deflecting his attacks. Tsukishima quickly turns the tables by getting a bit more serious and tells him his Fullbring “is still woefully incomplete”. Just as he is seemingly about to finish Ichigo off, Ginjou intervenes with his huge Claymore.
If the fight with Ichigo was cool, the fight with Ginjou was freaking Antarctica. I loved every second of it. The cool part to me was the overall lack of energy attacks and just two guys slashing at each other. But by far the biggest surprise this chapter was Ginjou used an attack without giving it a name! Doesn’t he understand Shonen Etiquette? I am very disappointed in you Ginjou.
While epicness is going on, Ichigo is trying to get in on the fight but Chad is telling him not to. My thoughts are Ichigo should just sit this one out. He hasn’t mastered his Fullbring yet and would be more of a hindrance than an asset. He rushes into the fight anyway and his Fullbring gets more powerful, however as Tsukishima is about to counter him, Yukio intervenes with his Fullbring, Invaders-Must-Die.
Let’s see if we can piece together what Yukio’s mysterious ability is. Kubo probably grew up when Space Invaders dominated arcade games. Then there’s the fact that Yukio is an avid gamer. Oh and he has a PSP in his hand. I wonder what his Fullbring could be based on. I have no idea. Then there’s the fact that this Arc is very similar to Yuyu Hakusho’s Chapter Black Saga. I bring this up again because there was a kid among the bad guys, Tsukishito Amanuma, with the power to make video games real. Hmm, I still can’t piece together what Yukio’s abilities might be. I’m at a loss here. Any ideas people?
These chapters…were actually good. I enjoyed the battles and what little revelations we got. Also, judging by Shishigawara’s antics, it seems Tsukishima is a much better boss than Aizen ever was, but what we’re seeing now is in contrast to what we saw a couple chapters ago when he said he’d kill Shishigawara. Whatever. I’d also like to know why Ichigo has Fullbring in the first place considering his mom was never attacked by a Hollow while he was inside of her… that sounds wrong. Perhaps he gained these abilities because he had an actual Hollow inside of him.
Also of note, it seems Tsukishima’s Fullbring doesn’t cut “anything” as Ginjou said, otherwise it would’ve cut through both Ichigo’s and Ginjou’s Fullbring.
