Chapter 372  

I am lazy, so I'm just copypasting my thoughts from s_s: I really enjoyed this one. Say what you will about the overall pacing of the manga (and oh, I do, frequently and at high volume) but this chapter feels like Kubo classic to me. Some fun fighting that's got as much character stuff as asskicking, little reveals here and there...thumbs up from me.

Lilynette, the world's first gun to give motivational speeches.

Yeah, this chapter is why I read Shounen. IT WAS SOME GOOD FUN FIGHTING. Starrk's humanity is being pointed to more and more--now, I know that spelled doom for Ulquiorra but I have a feeling that Starrk's either going to bail on Aizen or turn on Aizen. I just can't see him as dust in the wind.

To tell the truth, I'm a little scared for Lilynette because losing her would be the thing to motivate Starrk and you know it.

The page with the wolves--oh bow wow wow wow I love Kubo's art. And I love wolves. I really don't want to watch a bunch of doggies get killed, though. I'm genuinely scared for Rose and Love too--I LIKE THIS FEELING. THIS IS FUN. THIS IS SHOUNEN LEVEL SUSPENSE. I know they're not to going to bite it because they're so funny and cute but they could go down like Ukitake and Shunsui

I really liked this chapter, and am starting to like Love and Rose more and more. Those two really do work well together.

Stark realizes Aizen really is a cold, heartless *censor*, huh? Good for him. XD

On the last page - is Stark still carrying Lilynette? Or are the wolves actually her?

I can't make it out.

Ohhhhh, I don't think he has his gun... so SHE'S THE WOLVES? O.O NO LILYNETTE! DON'T DIE!
Vayshti: bleachvayshti on September 4th, 2009 02:41 pm (UTC)
If she is the wolves... she's the one with the revenge pep talk, not Stark, so there's every chance she will get utterly pwned for that moral transgression. Her being beaten/dying will be the thing to make Stark go over the edge - he'll be truly alone. He has no investment in this fight otherwise.

But I actually hope the fight won't go on that long, for it will take another good 3-4 chapters.

Ah, good spotting! I don't see any guns either D:

Kubo's probably just trolling me - my predictions are notoriously wrong. He's probably put her back in his holster or something.

Nice chapter. Oh Stark! *SIGH* Like you didn't already know Aizen was a cold hearted mofo using you for his own nefarious purposes? How on earth did you get to be #1 espada?

But this does point out that some of the arrancar are just as good as the shinigami and shouldn't be thoughtlessly slaughtered.

LOL anyone watching the anime? I'm enjoying the pseudo-Ulquiorra/Shirosaki fight. I think they are re-using a number of frames there. Not that I'm complaining.

*commenting as i read*

_LOL, oh rose, you. he almost seems like a prettier version of oomaeda, throwing in comic relief in the most random places ;)

_whoo, love... overcompensating much? xD anyway, you saw what happened to barragan and his big-ass axe. be careful there! =3

_there are so many panels of starrk looking surprised! ♥ not that i want him to get clobbered or anything, but surprised starrk is pretty ^.^

_something in the way kubo draws rose reminds me of my sailor moon days. maybe it's just the flowy hair.

_sounds to me like lilinette might've pep-talked starrk into accepting the first espada spot as well ^^;;; really doesn't sound like he'd wanna bother with that.

_well, kubo obviously happened to hear my comment about starrk being too emotional, because he put in that whole "i thought you hollow had no hearts!" thing. obviously, he can telepathically hear me when i whine about starrk's feelings but he doesn't hear me when i ask him to go back to the dome or for a bit more shiro-chan. go figure. *eyeroll*

_that last page just gives me chills. seriously, it is so amazing...

I like the tails of those wolves. *whip* They're so fluffy. Oh, but please, I don't want any affection for them, please please please. I have a problem with pets dying in stories, I find it traumatizing. If they start licking Stark's hand or if Stark is sad if they get injured or they have some kind of bond... D: D: D:

Love is a fun one to watch fight, swinging around that monsterous thing haha. It was fun to see and Kubo blended in just the right amount of suspense and awesomeness (Starrksomeness). WOLVES!!!! So cool! XD and how when Starrk gets serious he is surrounded by a pack of wolves -- like both a denial and an affirmation of his loneliness at the same time -- soooo cool.

Daaaaang that's a big cudgel. Almost looks like a cactus in some frames. And Rose is such a drama queen! I love the chemistry between these two characters.

Starrk... *sigh* Like others have said here, I'm concerned how this fight is going to end. Obviously he and Lily have been shown in a sympathetic light from the beginning, which has me absolutely dreading their deaths. Ulquiorra's end was sad enough, and I didn't feel half the sympathy for him as I have for the Primera pair.

Same here. I thought Ulquiorra's death was sad but well-done and served an actual purpose, and that it'd be a huge mistake to reverse it. But these guys? omg nooooo *clings to them*

He grabbed him by the hair. I expected one man to fling the other over his shoulder and carry him off to the woods.

I mean, uh! I also .. got.. vibes? o_O

My guess is that Stark is still holing Lily in his hand, which is kind of tucked behind his swoopy clothing? I don't think she could be ALL those wolves, oh goodness.

So Stark thinks the espada are cannon fodder? We know why Barragan followed Aizen--boredom and bloodlust. Why on earth would Stark follow Aizen, knowing Aizen could care less whether they all live or die?

I did like seeing Stark call up the Wild Hunt. First interesting thing he's ever done.
