Chapter 417 spoilers  
And we're off!

I knew Gin wouldn't be dead in just one chapter.

Judging by the pics Spacecat posted, Ichigo has a baby mullet going on. He's lucky he's cute enough to get away with it.

Reiatsu change for Ichigo, both from others trying to sense him and his ability to sense others? Oh HELL YEAH. I love this. He was shit about sensing reiatsu in others and masking his own before. This is a very good development for him.

I should have known that if a missing limb and a sword through the body wouldn't kill Ishida, it wouldn't kill Gin either. I mourned a bit too soon, it seems, but we'll see how this turns out.

Even Barragan didn't go out so quickly, and Gin has been in this story hella longer than Barry. Even if it's a prolonged death, it's more than the previous chapter had, and fans should rejoice. :D

OMG... one MORE DEICIDE????? damn, can't believe my eyes T__T
*so, maybe, deicide is about our butterfly, not Gin? ^^,*

I'd really like the title to be about ButterflAizen, TBH.

While my first pessimistic thought was that this could mean that he's only holding out long enough for another teary goodbye to Kira, or long enough to tell Ichigo Aizen's "weak" point... rigth now I'm a twitchy bundle of excitement!!!

Oh please, Kubo!!! Please, please, please!
I would love you forever and ever and ever if Gin survives (and I don't mean only for this chapter, but, you know, *really* survives)!
You hear me? Love! /fangirling

Oh and Ichigo! Looking mighty fine there! Now go and beat that miserably excuse for a butterfly to a bloody pulp! >D

I shall now go back to being a twitchy bundle until further (positive) confirmation or the chapter.

please please please

The lack of focus on Gin in this chapter makes it seem possible he might pull through. Don't quote me or anything, it just seems like his story is not really over yet.

Hmm...looks like its time I caught back up.

I was going to wait till the Deicide chapters were over but Ichigo and the potential to see something new from him is too tempting.

Also, yeay! The last layout update at BA lets the site work on my mobile again!
oh gallant piglet,: smileaizome on August 25th, 2010 08:51 am (UTC)
I've heard a lot of people saying lately that BA is loading easier. They also cracked down on huge-ass sig abusers, so that might have had something to do with it too. (Hell, my DSL isn't shoddy, but some of those sigs were sapping a lot of loading time. I was having to AdBlock a lot of them).

Ah, the joys of
*expletive deleted*

... no, no, that still doesn't some up my feelings.

*expletive deleted, expletive deleted, expletive deleted*

The first cut Gin got from Aizen was EXACTLY the same depth and length as the one that Kyoraku cut into Starrk. The result of that fight? Starrk dies before he hits the ground.

But wait, there's more.... after that first strike, which, if there were a just and loving god in bleach heaven would have been fatal, Gin then has his right arm RIPPED the **** off, and then gets run through for good measure.

The result? Still alive and kicking next chapter.

Now all that's left is for Rangiku to reveal that she was trained as part of fourth division for a while, out of nowhere. Come on Kubo, you know you want to.

I'm loathe to be so negative because I know this comment will stick out as the one angry one in what will otherwise be a joyous elation about Gin's survival, but really, this... the shinigami plot shield will NEVER cease to piss me off. Ever.

Why does bleach even need Ichigo? The shinigami are indestructible. so what if they can't touch Aizen? He can't kill them, either. it'll be an eternal stalemate.

Ordinarily I'm of the belief that if one has nothing nice to say, then they should say nothing, and I've held my tongue in public venue for this reason. I'll probably delete this later and move it to my private journal where it doesn't have to ruin anyone's good time. In the mean time I apologize, and beg your indulgence. Chalk this rant up to a butt-hurt Espada fanboy typing at 4 in the morning.

Re: Ah, the joys of
Dude, don't delete your expletives. (Ok I think it would be funny to read you swearing a blue streak. Yeah, I'm selfish and easily amused.)

For what it's worth, yeah, I agree with you completely. Even after reading translated bits of Kubo's 'Masked' interviews, it still rubs me wrong that non-shinigami get more damage from less hits. (Kenpachi vs. Ichigo in SS? Using that as an example, well... ok I'm preaching to the choir here.)

At this point, I just want to see Aizen get shredded. It would be infinitely more satisfying if it were done by a revived Espada coalition (seriously, that is my biggest Aizen-death fantasy), but right now even if Kon showed up and bankai-d the butterfly's arse I'd be satisfied. Not happy, but satisfied.

I'm getting like images of Kira all tending to Gin and the fan fics will come rushing in.

Its great Gin may live to fight another day! I honeslty wouldnt mind if he dies by the end of the series, but hopefully he will get in a REAL fight before then. (even if his style is short and sweet) Id like something more than a couple pages. Or maybe even an awesome kitsune hollow mask. :B

Ichigo's become so badass! I just hope he doesnt develop a Sasuke esque fangirl following... @_@
darkslover: Alucard Bowingdarkslover on August 25th, 2010 11:04 am (UTC)
... I thought the Deicide saga ended... Oh well.

Ichigo with long hair: Good

Ichigo with long hair being confident: Very good.

Ichigo with long hair being confident and taking down Aizen just like that: Awesome.

Ichigo being his usual "Stay back, I got this" self... not that Awesome. Still, I'm not complaining.

I wanna see what this "not feeling the reiatsu" means exactly. Looks like both Ichigo and Gin know something Aizen doesn't. Yeah, yeah, I know this sentence sounds impossible, but this is what I read. We'll see.

Oh, and Gin is alive. Whoop-Dee-Doo. Please Kubo-sensei, let him spill the guts!
(Anonymous) on August 25th, 2010 11:54 am (UTC)

...I'm just slightly irritated that Ichigo had his power-up offscreen. I like the turn Bleach is taking lately, but it feels like a lot of the revelations the past 20 chapters or so have been rushed and more than a bit sloppy.

Also, nobody dies in Bleach.

Also also, hang in there, Gin. (;_____;)

Grenatescarboucle on August 25th, 2010 02:57 pm (UTC)
No, I thought Ichigo would have his power up off screen because... that's also how he gained bankai already XD So I thought that Kubo was definitely going to do it :)

As for Gin, I have mixed up feelings. I love him, but I think he needs to die. Then again, I'm on a killing rampage myself, so this might not help (I mean, in my own story). XD

Gin: (Yeah, you've developed a strong eye. I'm glad. If that's what you've become I can leave things to you.)


That statement reminds me of Gin's recent color cover---With the "I must go this way (to the afterlife); You must go that way... I'm counting on you now." Which doesn't leave me hopeful for Gin's chances.
Capellaakai_gekkou on August 25th, 2010 12:11 pm (UTC)
Why does someone always have to bring up that cover? D:

It doesn't exist, you hear me?! ...just as your icon... doesn't really exist. ;)

I don't understand myself anymore. In one moment I'm all pessimistic (color cover), in the next I enter complete denial mode.
