Hmmmm... curious indeed.

I'm thinking the baiting of Isshin is less likely, although it's likely he'll show up anyway.

The Aizen control theory still stands, IMO. If no one know's they're under Aizen's control, it'd be easy to get them to do what he wants.

And there's always the possibility that SS is just flat out run by incompetent fools. *facepalm* I mean, I get that this is shounen, and placing all of your hopes on the shoulders of an overpowered teenager is common, but even Ichigo know's he's screwed.
_debbiechan_: Byakuya's Musical Glance by Distilled_debbiechan_ on November 5th, 2009 04:54 pm (UTC)

Did I or did I NOT say that any fight with Yammy would be slapstick-a-licious? His getting his fingers cut off! And that panel of Ken-chan lunging at his face! PRICELESS!

Like I said at BA, people can rag on Kubo-sensei all they want for his pacing but as those of us who read the very dialogue-heavy script know now, there's so much more to the story than what happens--Kubo's art tells so much. The perspective on that funky ceremony to open the garganta is so interesting and then we zoom in on Ichigo's goof face and Mayuri's furious eyeball--that's just so FUNNY.

Then there's all the drama of ebil ebil ebil Mayuri and who knows what he's planning with those bodies. Nemu's banal promise to make Ichigo look back fondly on the war (Hooooo!) and wow, I just live for Nii-sama's sidelong glances...

The closing panels were full of ominous stuff. I loved it... so much more than yeehah, here comes the hero to save the day--more like, WATCH ICHIGO EFF THIS UP, AND OMG WHAT COULD MAYURI BE PLANNING (and could Byakuya's eyelashes BE any prettier? <3)
Kylara: henshinkarenai on November 5th, 2009 06:11 pm (UTC)
I confess, Debbie, I EWWWWWWED when I saw the fingers come off. >.> but yah, looks like Yammy isn't getting a Srs Bizness fight, and I'm glad for that.

Oh, I think Mayuri does want his evil back. Whatever he's planning with those bodies, I both eagerly anticipate and dread.

Byakuya is the prettiest character in Bleach. He can out-pretty himself, but it's difficult, even for him.

Ha, ha, those things used to set up the garganta on the first page look ridiculously like those checkmark things you had to hit in sonic the hedgehog.

Other than that, I don't really have much to say about this chapter. That Ichigo's the only one who can fight? pssha. I can't believe it. After the total beatdown he received from first Ulqui (before going pyscho) and then Yammi? I think he's probably going to witness the shikai anyway and then everyone will be *facepalm* we're screwed, and then some Kubo-miracle-fan-mind-splitter will occur.

Well it just goes to show that you can't trust the spoilers. I had a completely different impression of this chapter than what it was.

For one thing, I'm less convinced that Ichigo will get destroyed. At the very least I think he will retain his immunity to kyoko suigetsu whatever happens.

selenityshiroiselenityshiroi on November 5th, 2009 06:39 pm (UTC)
I think someone ELSE will get their arse handed to them to MAKE SURE Ichigo keeps him immunity.

Or that Unohana slaps Ichigo down to make sure he doesn't get corrupted (in an 'I'm knocking you out for your own good' type of scenario).
Kashino: Bleach-Ichi-hostkashinosei on November 5th, 2009 05:29 pm (UTC)
LOL~~ This one is hilarious~ Ichigo looks so cool when he said he'll defeat aizen. that face is priceless. I love ichigo's side.

Mayuri and Byakuya's exchange is funny.

Some reactions while reading:

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Here I am eagerly anticipating Ichigo's failure, but the lower-right panel on this page:

http://www.onemanga.com/Bleach/381/02/

*cries* ICHIBOY, I want to take care of you... (sorry, coddling is not what you need right now.)

This page:
http://www.onemanga.com/Bleach/381/07/

*runs screaming into the night*

Uh. Unohana is freaking terrifying. I'm going to say for now that she's complicit in setting Ichigo up for massive failure, in using him as some sort of experiment, something - because those panels of her are very, very cold. She's scary again on 16. Oooh man.

=_= This chapter is a little depressing. There are just so many ways that this is going to hurt Ichigo, and while I'm part of the "this is necessary for Ichigo" camp, urgh, I always feel bad when I actually SEE IT.

Sigh. He's going to eat it and eat it hard, and Kubo is going to be s-l-o-w about it, too.

http://www.onemanga.com/Bleach/381/17/

Byakuya's scarves are like an extension of his hair. Just, look at that flow, that body!

I just submitted a comment - two down (I think) - saying something like this. I should've just read through and agreed with yours, and saved myself some typing, LOL.

But, yeah, I completely agree, they are setting him up for something. I mean:
1)They can detect when someone's spiritual energy changes, therefore there is no way that they don't know - or at least have some idea - of what happened on that dome.
2)They know Ichigo will do anything to protect and that he won't turn them down if they ask.
3)They know Aizen is a conniving bastard and that he doesn't have to speak to release his shikai.
With just those in mind, how can they not be setting him up in some way?

I still want to know how the blue fuck Ichigo is going to fight Aizen? Blindfolded? I guess the endless bandages he generates out of thin air will finally find a practical use.
Kylara: henshinkarenai on November 5th, 2009 07:38 pm (UTC)
You know there's a 90% chance Ichi will actually try this. I mean, this is the boy who thought he could chop up a Menos Grande like a cabbage.

KUBO, WHERE IS MY RUKIA!? Seriously, not even a reaction shot...

I love Unohana like oxygen loves hydrogen, but Ichigo cannot defeat Aizen. Look at that boy's face - look at his eyes, even he knows it. But he's going to go along with it even if it means he breaks (in every and any capacity) because that's what every one wants of him, what they expect of him. And the captains know that too. They are playing him.

And that's why, somehow, and I'm aware this is craktastic, I get the feeling that SS is planning to offer Ichigo up in some way in an attempt to get an advantage over Aizen.

Last but not least: I know there are those here attached to Mayuri, but I never liked him and every time he shows up I like him even less. If the shinigami should suffer casualties I want him to be one of them.

I have one question please...

Unohana speaks of 'Urahara's group'. Who exactly does she include in that? Just Tessai and the two kids or the Vizards as well? When and how were all the Vizards exposed to Aizen's shikai?

Also what about Isshin? When would he have been exposed?

That's the crux with characters stating things as absolute but the reader goes 'hu?' instead.

Aha. My reaction exactly. Who does she mean?

Maybe it's assumed when Aizen pulled his little hollowfication stunt he had to have revealed? Or since they were part of SS, Aizen has this whole yearly display of manliness to the new recruits whereby everyone gets to know.

(Look, my shikai, my bankai. Lol illusion my new pawns har har)

... How does she know about Urahara's group exactly? Is there constant communication? The Vizards showed up as a surprise didn't they? Hm. Or clearly Unohana knows everything and pwns everyone.


Isshin. Yes. But she doesn't know about him does she?

Why did I not see this post earlier? Goes to show big picture posts block all others.

Anyways, as I said in the other Ichigo has been looking so young, innocent, and beautiful in these latest chapters. It will be interesting ot see what happens next.

I think this is an important point. What have we seen of Ichigo lately? He's either been an inhuman monster or looking like a naive little boy. This all points to impending epic fail.

If the captains are plotting to use Ichigo somehow, then sending four captains to Hueco Mundo makes a lot more sense. They didn't go to help rescue Orihime or even the group. They went specifically to get Ichigo back. (Well, maybe Rukia and Renji being there too had something to do with it.)

I've never quite trusted Soul Society, and this makes me a bit worried for Ishida, Orihime and Chad, especially now that Unohana's gone and Mayuri's still there.

Oh I love chapters were there is more talking than fighting! Though I still hated how Unohana said Ichigo was the only one able to beat Aizen...I just did't like it. We all know it's inevitable but still, for it to be stated by Unohana of all people...D:

I loved Byakuya and Mayrui's exchange, I wish we had more exchanges between captains. I'm just glad Byakuya is back in the manga! Of course I also love the appearance of the other captains too (especially Mayuri).

Wonder when Urahara and 'his group' are going to come? Now that another Gargamta is open...what could Urahara be doing?
nehalenia: ichigo pensivenehalenia on November 5th, 2009 08:38 pm (UTC)
I tend to like the talking chapters better than the fighting chapters, so I'm glad we got so much convo and explanation.

I'm glad -- and a little jittery -- that Mayuri is back to being amoral and creepifying.

I'm not sure I can say I've actually 'enjoyed' the chapters since we came back to HM. I'm glad we're back in HM, I loved seeing Rukia and all the interactions, but to be honest? Since the moment Ichigo broke this vow -- http://www.onemanga.com/Bleach/285/19/ -- and said he'd leave his nakama there and go back to FKT, I have felt this overwhelming sense of wrongness. I don't know what's going to happen, but my gut tells me it's going to be bad and it's going to awful to watch. It's almost like watching someone say 'I'm going down to the cellar' in a horror movie only even worse, because Bleach isn't supposed to be a horror movie so the 'bad thing' isn't going to be some ghost or crazy guy with a chainsaw. It's going to be worse.

Right now I'm just in a "God, Kubo, whatever you're going to do to Ichigo, PLEASE do it and get it over with!" Still loving Bleach, but the sense of overshadowing dread is making it hard to enjoy.

Well, he can't kill Ichigo again. Or maybe he will?

Either that are Ichigo and Uno are going to come back to the shinigami captains/vizards all or nearly dead.

Or something will happen to his friends.

aeri: kurosaki ichigoiluxe_love on November 5th, 2009 10:03 pm (UTC)
OMG, Ichigo and Byakuya look so pretty *.*

I really do not quite understand Unohana's logic. She says that everybody else might have seen Aizen's zanpakutou, so Aizen has control over them? Is the condition of Kyouka Suigetsu that you only have to see it once in your entire lifetime for Aizen to be able to control you whenever? Ehhh, confused. *Blames poor memory*

I would love to know what's going on in Byakuya's head. So he doesn't completely believe in Ichigo's abilities, eh? (Well, I don't either at this point, but the other captains seem to.) Kenpachi himself points out that Ichigo gets beaten up everywhere he goes and needs the captains to bail him out, but they send him to FKT to go after AIZEN? Something doesn't make sense here.

And wait a minute, Ichigo jumps into the garganta without even a goodbye to Rukia, who is still lying injured somewhere??

Interesting chapter, nevertheless. I do enjoy talking chapters more than fighting chapters.
nehalenia: ichigo pensivenehalenia on November 5th, 2009 11:05 pm (UTC)
I hate it too, but Rukia's the one he couldn't quite look in the eye, remember?

Despite that big grin on Ichigo's face when he leaps into the garganta, I suspect this is really a case of "Hmm, do I stay here and deal with my friends and face what I've done when I lost control of my Hollow, or do I go bash something? BASH!"
