376 is up  

Harri's not dead. I'm now officially going with the future "Espada Revenge on Aizen" idea.

But nuuuu not my baby Wonderwyce!

Ok dish, y'all.

Ugh, Mashiro really annoys me so I wanted Wonder to kick her ass. Why'd Kensei have to interrupt? What a bore. I wonder if Aizen will fly down there and take care of Wonder himself, since he's already dispatched of Harribel and wants to get on with whatever his plan is. I hope not, I've always imagined Wonder to have something huge up his sleeve.

Hee. I actually think Mashiro is cute and I like her but I wish she had adopted WW instead of fighting him? But that's not what happened, so yeah, I'm concerned. I dun want the crazy little guy to die. :(

Huh. I think I'm starting to like Kensei. Maybe it's the eyebrow ring. Also, Mashiro's kind of pretty? And Aizen's a super-conniving bastard who will be brought down with the help of his own hubris...
oh gallant piglet,: pretty quincyaizome on October 2nd, 2009 07:46 am (UTC)
I sure as heck HOPE Aizen is brought down via actions like his in this chapter. There's really no excusing it, y'know?

Reposted from the post above this one (now edited).

- No! Haribel! Though that cut didn't look fatal so there might be hope

- The mask on/mask off deal is given a little bit of explanation at least.The times mentioned way back before Ichigo-tachi left for HM are some sort of base time and exertion, such as combat reduces it. Which explains Ichigo's early problems which are just an extension of his initial all or nothing approach to using his power.

- Aizen's dialogue is interesting when challenging the Gotei 13 and Vizard. Specifically, at least in the version I read, he called the Vizard Arrancar wannabes effectively. I find that very... curious. Despite being essentially the same things approached from different directions Aizen seems to consider the Arrancar (the concept if not the particular individuals) as inherently superior to their shinigami derived counterpart. Yet if he chooses to take that route he would become a Vizard as well. Makes me wonder if Aizen is not merely a megalomaniac but rather off his rocker as well.

I wish I'd waited on the post, because your insights are much better than mine!

Aizen enthusiasts have been given loads of stuff to work with in this chapter. It will be most interesting to see how it all plays out for him.

Yesh Yesh Yesh! let's get revenge! XD i like that idea of the Espada getting revenge, though, sadly they're all pathetic now :( . Anyway, i still want (at least Halibel or Starrk) to kick dirty Aizen ass. but still, i don't think that's gonna happen cuz Halibel and Starrk , they might not dead but they're out of the picture now :(( (just like Grimm ;__;) and even if they're not, i think Starrk won't do such a thing (concerned his personality, but i love Starrk for that XD)

About WW and Mashiro, no doubt Kensei's gonna take care of WW for good, (i'm always on the Vaizards side *big grinnin*). Anyways, i think WW got some secret power that he's gonna show for the 1st time, since he's such a special one to begin with, or else, Aizen is coming to take care of WW, just like he did with Halibel.

Yeah, I love the ideas here! Realistically, I dunno. But the ride looks like we need to be buckled in, regardless!

I wonder if the Vizard have a slightly over-inflated view of their own capabilities.

After all, for the last hundred years they've been out of circulation. Their secrecy and flying-under-the-radar must mean they haven't had much of a chance to fight anyone else (Gotei 13 or Hollows) -- well, unless the victim of said fights never got back home to talk about it. They've only had each other to practice against. Nothing new. Nothing unexpected.

While they certainly have a raw strength boost and cero capability, they may not be quite the combo-breaking fighters they think they are.
oh gallant piglet,aizome on October 2nd, 2009 09:32 am (UTC)
This is a very good point and one I'm not sure what to do with. Thus far though, it's been proven? Yeah, Love and Rose are awesome, but they still needed bailing out. I'm interested to see if there's more to the TBTP arc, or well, maybe a sequel to that arc?

Hahaha! Kubo doesn't give plot that easily. ;) But yeah, I was thinking along the same lines for a bit there.

And I agree, there's got to be more to Harri's being cut down here.

missberlitz4 on October 2nd, 2009 11:07 am (UTC)
(new post coz I'm ocd and didn't want two seperate comments... and I wanted to add more)
I liked it this week!
I don't think those two wounds were enough to kill Harribel, but I'm not keeping my hopes up... I like her as a character though. And I'm actually glad that instead of falling to the ground and admitting defeat she tried to strike back at him. I've always sort of thought that the espada resented Aizen, even if only a little bit, instead of worshipping him wholeheartedly. And, on the subject of Aizen, geez, look at 'im and his flying tail coats. Again, why does he have to look so pretty?
.. but he is still a bastard nonetheless. I can totally see him having a breakdown and losing to someone that's stronger then him (ala shonen law- ichigo)

naaaw, mashiro, she's a bit of a dummy but I still like her. should've listened to kensei.. who was also pretty badass this week.

and wonderweiss is scary sometimes ;_; but he's cute too. I want to adopt him D:
georg_vanlunden: DU WERDEST EINEN KRANKENSCHWESTER BRAUCHgeorg_vanlunden on October 2nd, 2009 11:46 am (UTC)
If Kubo sincerely means to present Tousen, Gin and Aizen versus Yama-freakin-Moto AND the Vizards as an 'even' match-up... I don't think words alone will be enough to convey my rage. I may need to roar until I shatter the barriers of reality and my wrath resonates with the dark dimensions that lie close to ours, and turn into a black dragon with a hundred gaping maws spewing flames of pure bile and anger until my country is a charred wasteland of distaste.

But that little foray into purple prose aside, really now Kubo? Tousen has been shown to be beaten, not easily but beaten nonetheless, by Kenpachi on his own. Gin does not seem to be that much more powerful than Tousen. Unless their little excursion into Hueco Mundo gave them some kind of super-power boost, there is no way I can see them as valid threats. And as for Aizen's immortal hypno-powers, well. The less I say about Aizen the better. Hint it's because I want to vomit whenever I just see his smug face

That aside, I hope that Mashiro is not taken out just yet. Okay, her mask dissolves because it's a different matter to wear it in battle than it is in regular situations, I can accept that IF Kubo explicitly states it is so. If he just demasked her just so that big strong Kensei could swoop in and save her from the Amazing Developmentally Challenged Wonderchild, I will be immensely put-off and call bullshit on Kishi. At the rate he's going he's shelfing his female characters almost as badly as Kishimoto. When that happens, you really ought to take a long, hard look at what you're doing.

I have to say I immensely enjoyed reading your post. You voiced my feelings perfectly.

This bit in particular. Aizen just rubs me the wrong way. I don't mind arrogance but sadly he is written with the ability to pull out far too many deus-ex-machina solutions. And the smugness doesn't help either.

I personally like Kensei/Mashiro and the panel when Kensei saved Mashiro reminds me of the part when Ichigo saved Rukia :D Honestly Kubo Tite has something to do with carrying woman like a potato sack.

_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on October 2nd, 2009 12:24 pm (UTC)

Well, it's awkward to carry a woman elegantly while wielding a sword. Kubo even has a volume poem about it--how I can't embrace you while holding a sword. It's another one of his sexy ironies.

My friend khyata was observing yesterday about that Kensei panel that Kubo does pull the epic porportions on us whenever a lad is being heroic saving a girl. Kensei IS HUGE. He's way bigger than he's supposed to be. And Kubo knows his heights of characters (see the chart scanned by Kylara in a previous post from the FTB goodies) so when he pulls this, it's intentional. Shinji standing before a teeny tiny Hiyori, Ichigo holding a feather of a Rukia--the guy looks SHOUNEN AWESOME. Okay, some people get their feminist sensibilities in a knot over stuff like this but this is the hero's quest-- to save the girl .

That said, I'm waiting for Kubo to pull the big one he's been hinting at for three effing years and have ORIHIME fight alongside her peers the way she swore to do.

Manjamoonlightspirit on October 2nd, 2009 01:05 pm (UTC)
hmmm Kensei x3 but Iam a little worried <.<' I just hope the fight doesnt end badly for him :/

and uhhh I really really hope that that one sentence of Aizen, that the gotei 13 and Vaizards should come, doesnt mean that he pwns everyone there <.<, a trap I can believe because Aizen is a manipulative deceiving little bastard but with pure fighting power? no, I honestly would want that :/ powerful villain or not, I think that would be to much but meh thats just me :/, I know that some fans are most likely waiting for Aizen to pwn everyone there so that they could have their good guy casualties...its would just be hard to believe in some cases for me, considering that Yama and Shunsui for example are quite powerful themself...

ohh and random observation: Shuuhei is still standing xD
oh gallant piglet,aizome on October 2nd, 2009 08:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm with you here. Aizen being all-powerful and unbeatable is, IMO, BORING.
wiltorawiltora on October 2nd, 2009 02:33 pm (UTC)
All this talk about Mashiro desmaskified makes me wonder... What the fuck do Vizards do normally when they wear their masks? People say it's different to fight with the mask on or do regular activity but what the fuck is that "regular activity"? Do the laundry? Does Shinji put on his mask when he's doing the history assignments?

I dunno, up until now I thought that when they wore the masks it was to fight or train, that is exert a lot of effort, fight practice among themselves and such. But seeing people's reactions I'm totally picturing them wearing the masks while riding a bike or doing the laundry, or even going shopping, good discounts for the huge guy with the freakish mask, rite?
wiltorawiltora on October 2nd, 2009 02:35 pm (UTC)
And now I'm totally seeing Kensei with his mask on washing his underwear in a corner, which means I can't take seriously his pose of "I won't go easy on a child" as I think "oh he's going to treat him like a pair of dirty boxers". T_______________T

That chapter was okay. Nothing like last week's chapter, which I REALLY enjoyed for all the depressing feeeeelings.

I don't think, by the way, that Aizen is going to fight the entire Gotei 13 + the Vizards. The instant he tries that is the instant we all know for sure that this really isn't Aizen, or some other conspiracy theory. He would NEVER bother - as I think andrew_jp said in the previous 376 post, Aizen is just too lazy.

Come on, plot. I lust for you.
oh gallant piglet,aizome on October 2nd, 2009 09:00 pm (UTC)
Aizen is just too lazy.

True. I've been on the That's-Not-Aizen bandwagon until recently, and am not opposed to jumping back on it.
 syx: angrydarksyx on October 2nd, 2009 03:18 pm (UTC)
My only thought: why the recruitment of arrancar to come to this? I want answers, dammit, and plot. And I'm afraid maybe in the next chapter we will go to the dome and won't have plot till December (as I initially thought months ago) -___-. Aaaagh, I have to hate the very, very, veeeeery slow pace.
andrew_jpandrew_jp on October 2nd, 2009 05:39 pm (UTC)
I didn't believe Aizen's "I didn't expect you all to be so weak" for a second. He's just pretending that this all wasn't keikaku doori to psych out the shinigami and/or be an asshole.

Consider the full implications of his galling disrespect for a moment. He isn't just disparaging the three Espada he brought with him, but everyone weaker than them: the three privaron, Aaroniero and Zommari, who called out to him in their last moments, all the fraccion, and even Ulquiorra, who was never anything except loyal and competent, as far as Aizen knows. Are the fangirls going to let him get away with denigrating their favorite woobie arrancar like that?
