Chapter 370  

Chapter 370: Debating Life from God's Viewpoint

I guess this means Bargran is sent back to his grave from whence he came, finally. Not sure to be laughing, crying or shitting my pants right now with all this hungry ghost haunting 88DDD

Oh, Oomaeda! You finally managed to find your tongue when your Woobie Captain falls again. So CUTE! ^o^

Hacchi is THE MAN. Holy crap. Barry was sure a scary one, but Hacchi's got some serious strategy there, along with his Mad Kido skills. Good for the big pink-'stached dude!

Au revoir, Skeletor Espada.

Too bad Baragan didn't leave behind a dog bone...

8/Hacchi is the man indeed; too bad he had to sacrifice an arm for it.

Please Kubo, please for the sake of all that is holy and not boring the crap out of me PLEASE let Barragan finally be DEAD!!!

I've given up hope of us moving back to Hueco Mundo anytime soon, but could we at least move on to a different fight?

Omaeda and Soifon were pretty cute here tho. She must really be bad off because she didn't even punch Omaeda for catching her.

Yeah the Omaeda x Soi shippers (if they exist) will find this chapter cute. XD

Oh sweet mother of Kubo. It's about fucking time something happened.

Yeah, I have no sympathy at all for the fanboys crying over this.

You mean Barragan had fanboys?

great chapter indeed, Hacchi won my heart.

I really hope this was the end of Barragan, a great end indeed

finally something interesting

what's sad is that the anime filler is legitimately still keeping my interest more x_X
deathlike on August 21st, 2009 02:17 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't call it a filler this time... Kubo's hands are all over this Zanpakuto Saga.

Hacchi - my week's hero.

A bit funny though that Barragan regards himself as a god - wasn't that Aizen's position in HM? Not that faithful then, eh? Still, that Aizen tolerated that attitude does surprise me. But then again all three top Espada have their own mind.

My thoughts exactly when Barragan called himself God of Hueco Mundo. But then again, I guess it fits into his overly arrogant personality.

Thank goodness he's gone!

Barragan is fucking scary. Pardon my language. He freaks me the hell out.

But watching him go down after his "You are insects!" monologuing was richly satisfying. I ended up enjoying this battle MUCH more than I thought I would based on the spoilers.

Me too!

Baragan brought down by his own hubris. I love it!

Now I wonder if the other Espada will be brought down by their own "sins".

It was nice to finally see Baragan go. I didn't think what they did last chapter would work, and it didn't, but Hacchi sure used the arm eating technique against the old guy! I liked the irony in that... and if more people are going to lose their arms, why not put it to good use? Good thinking Hacchi! :D

Can we please see some more Shuuhei and Komamura now? I want to see Tousen get some punishment.

Oh and now Orihime can be really useful. If they can get her out of HM. There are plenty of arms and other body parts that need replacing!
Michelle: Thinkinggrrlgamer4ever on August 21st, 2009 09:14 am (UTC)
Is it sad if now I wonder if that's how Kubo's going to show Orihime having her really badass growth moment?

Instead of only being able to repair one body part at a time, she just pops everyone under a shield and goes "I reject!" and they all have body parts again?

I can see him going with mass healing for her over her being an ass kicker. :(

I for one would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Hacchi for joining the one-arm club! Also, the ending to this fight was fantastic! My vote also goes for Hueco Mundo, but I'd be satisfied with Komamura and Shuuhei making Tosen cry. :)

This chapter was much better than the spoilers earilier in the week had me believe.

1. Nice and fluffy Soi x Oomaeda interaction is fluffy and ...nice...

2. Hachi is a badass.

3. We learned Hachi and Barragan's full names at last!

4. I like how Barragan never let go of his Pride, and therefore died because of it. It really fit with his character.

*commenting as i read*

_is it horrible that i'm left thinking the best part of this chapter is the title? ^^;;; i'm sorry, it's just an awesome title! x3

_awww, oomaeda ♥ he fanbois over cares so much for his captain, it's so cute. =3

_this arc has made me really appreciate soi fong. i never thought i would, i didn't care much for her and her plot points before, but now i think she's pretty awesome.

_"the great emperor"? well, well, someone here thinks very highly of himself... *whistles* lol, now i finally get the whole "arrogante" thing.

_awwwwwwww, HACCHI FTW! that was so awesome. and the way he was all "forgive us for our unbelief"-- he's just too cool. sucks that he had to sacrifice his hand (is that enough for him to be able to join the club?) but it only makes him all the more impressive. i love fights like these, when it's all about strategy and not just brute force. i do hope barragan is now done for, although i guess the whole "i won't forgive you! i won't forgive you! i won't forgive you! (x100000)" thing is pretty conclusive.

i can haz shiro-chan nao plz? *big puppy eyes* or shuuhei, or starrk, or shunsui & ukitake, any of them. i'm not picky...

Great chapter, both Hacchi and Soifon have my respect.
But now, however obnoxious and fangirlish it may sound... hell, I want to see what's with UKITAKE!!!!

Thanks for posting bradc---I was looiing forward to this chapter from the spoilers because although I'm not quite a fangirl, BARRY IS ONE SCARY MOFO AND I WANTED TO SEE HIM GO. And I'm a sucker for all the hubris and G-d stuff that Kubo pulls--I was hoping for some kind of monologue on the order of Mayuri's perfection speech to Szayel, but after Barry did all this blowhard stuff about insects, Hutch just SLAMS him with one elegant put-down."Forgive us our un-belief." Awesome.

Also, is Hutch identifying himself with the Shinigami there?

Soi Fong. You kill me, you cute little thing. You're so messed up in the head. I'm really looking forward to seeing how Urahara gets out of the box she's sentenced him to.

It just occurred to me when I read your comment: even if Hacchi DOES put Urahara in the box (which he probably will because he strikes me as the honorable type), Hacchi's BOSS, Tessai, is Urahara's devoted assistant. Unless he also agrees to the imprisonment, I can't imagine Urahara being locked up for long.

The conclusion of the this battle was satisfying. I really can't imagine anyone one else of the good guys being able to take down Barragan. Hachi is amazing. I hope Kubo will continue to concentrate on one battle at the time. But I also want to go back to HM soon.
secila80: Snorkelingsecila80 on August 21st, 2009 03:15 pm (UTC)
I really enjoyed this chapter. debbiechan was right!!! Barragan ended his terrorizing with an exceptionally satisfying speech. All of my fears of disappointment in his pre-consequence demise are gone. That was perfect. Barragan's character was stripped down and revealed completely in under 20 pages. O.o How do you do it, Kubo?!!

His 'manner of dying' (lol) was just amazingly appropriate. No fireworks or fanfare, he just a prideful SoB fading into nothingness as he was done in by his own power. Soooooooo good. So long Barragan!!! Time to bring on Starrk!!! (but don't kill him, Kubo, please)
Kylara: rory cryingkarenai on August 21st, 2009 03:23 pm (UTC)
Initial thoughts:

Oomaeda to Hachi: Of course not, fatty!!!!

.... Oomaeda. I am .. not calling you out on anything, but .... pots.. kettles. Just sayin'.

And hey, bad-ass Hachi. You are a smart man. <3 And apparently a shinigami O_O

Is it just me that thought it was cute that Soi Fong is now sans a shoe?
Kylara: Rukia's eyekarenai on August 21st, 2009 03:38 pm (UTC)
Oh shit, Soi also called him "Ushoda Hachigen".

Kubo, give me a couple flashback panels, I want to see young!Soi Fong and Hachi XD
