My Essay on Ulquiorra's Past  

Wow, this community is awesome! I'm so glad I've joined. I look forward to sharing thoughts, information, fanfics and essays (concerning Bleach, of course) with you guys. Don't worry, I'm not going to bombard you with stuff, just want you to know I'll contribute to this community.

Well, without further ado, here's a lengthy essay I wrote recently concerning the new Bleach UNMASKED 3 databook--specifically, the amazing comic concerning Ulquiorra's past as a Vasto Lordes class Hollow.

Please share your thoughts, comments and/or criticisms! ^^

A really good essay.

I like how your analysis is structured pointing out the details in the Backstory that formed Ulquiorra's character in the Arrancar Arc.

The comparison between Nnoirta and Ulquiorra as expression's of Nihilism on the Physical and Metaphysical terms.

I also like how you explained the significance of some of the symbology like the Upside-Down Cross and references to Shakespeare's Hamlet in the 'Not Be, But Be'quote and how you pay attention to Kubo's little details like making Ulquiorra slow to respond to Orihime's use of Ulquiorra-kun.

Great Work.

Reminds me of what I wrote about Ulquiorra: http://www.mangatherapy.com/post/1047934304/ulquiorra-cifer

I really do believe that he wanted to make friends with the other Hollows. I thought Ulquiorra was a character who wanted to experience good feelings, but the opportunity came too late. But, late than never, I suppose.

Great read!

Thank you! Wow, I loved your essay! I never thought about how Ulquiorra's tears could be self-guilt/pity...Interesting ^^

I do think they are in some ways. That would reflect his aspect of nihilism.

True ^^ I hope Kubo reveals more about Uquiorra...or simply reveal Ulquiorra himself.XD

Also, bring back Grimmjow too. XD

Oh yeah, him too! Grimm and Ichigo and Ulquiorra= Epic. XD

On a side note, it was nice to see Ulquiorra and Grimm on the 10-year anniversary color spread. :]

Omg yes it was so cool XD Interesting how Grimmjow had the exact same pissed-off expression and monkey-crouch as Hiyori XD And also Ulquiorra gazing at Orihime while she ate pie like 'Omg the woman is in a maid's suit...my dreams are coming true!!'

Now that I'm taking a closer look at it, it's like Ulquiorra is going DAT ASS.
icefrostyicefrosty on August 18th, 2011 03:35 pm (UTC)
LOL, yeah XD Or 'Woman, why u no give me pie?!' XD
