Bleach 419 is out  
Bleach #419 is out at Mangastream.

Remember NOT to Tweet to Kubo about this chapter, or using art from this chapter, until Monday.

Ichigo talking back to Aizen, mocking him so matter-of-factly, and Aizen getting outraged, still amuses me. <3333

... Ew, Aizen. Gross. >_>;; Yes, yes, he's becoming more of a monster with each new form, but yuck. His face is more like a hollow mask, he has even more holes in him, and his medusa-like appendages remind me of hollow chains (like when Ichigo was trying to regain his shinigami powers under the Urahara Shoten).

Aizen believes that the Hougyoku won't 'allow' him to lose. But how much is that the Hougyoku's will and how much of it is just the Hougyoku fulfilling Aizen's wishes?

Shot of the Karakura kids and Kanonji, then Tatsuki worrying about Ichigo.

On one hand, Ichigo gets totally blasted on the left side, and on the second, he's now shirtless once again. ... ... Well, considering he is completely unfazed by both Aizen's gross new form and by being burned, I'm going to celebrate the second option. \o/ (Really, Ichigo continues to look smoking hot.)

Blah blah blah, Aizen talking more smack, 'I'm so great, you suck so much, I'm the best, you're nothing,' then Ichigo telling him to STFU and easily getting out of Aizen's grasp. Love this panel, though it's a bit scary, too, given Ichigo's continuing unflappable, stoic attitude.

Yay, probably at least part of Ichigo's new Getsuga Tenshou next week! (Yes, Kubo is moving at incredible roadrunner speeds compared to most of HM arc, but...)

ok ok
so many "final" techniques already.
qwirky on September 9th, 2010 01:42 pm (UTC)
I might be forgetting something, but this is the first time we've seen someone have a "final" technique, isn't it? I don't recall Ichigo ever having a 'final' technique anyway, and this was something we've been waiting for since when Isshin first spoke of it in the dangai a few chapters ago. Not surprising that what he trained three months to learn is popping up now. It's why he learned it, after all.

That said, yeah, Aizen continues to evolve into much uglier phases. :shinyeyes

So, everything was fine until Ichigo lost the left side of his clothing ..

qwirky on September 9th, 2010 01:43 pm (UTC)
lol, I was at first horrified by that because of his burned arm, but since Ichigo brushes it off like it's nothing, I'm echoing your "Thank you, Kubo-sensei!" sentiment XD

...That can't be my Ichigo. He's WAAAAY too attractive to be that darling boy!
qwirky on September 9th, 2010 01:46 pm (UTC)
I really approve of him continuing to look wonderful, even when he's been blasted~ <333

Reaction Pages 1-10
Okay, I had soo many reactions to this chapter that I am going to align all my thoughts with the respective page numbers

*Don't look if you haven't read it yourself*

Page 4- Okay Ichigo, I know you’re trying to be epic and all but it's coming from being uncharacteristic to being "dude your freaking me out stop it."

Page 5- Nice "ON MY SOUL!" face Aizen...your doing it... right? Nice Byakuya face Ichigo...your also doing it...right? Umm, which one is the protagonist again?

Page 7- Aizen: *thinking* "Did I leave the stove on again...furthermore why is there a bleeding eye on my forehead, derp?"

Page 9- ...Meh...

I echo my previous thoughts.

This isn't Ichigo.

He doesn't talk like Ichigo, look like Ichigo, or even really act like Ichigo. It's not that I don't appreciate him kicking Aizen's ass, but I'm seriously unsettled by how he's pretty much thrown away (or hidden) all that has defined his character for the past 39029385235 pages of manga or so.

Yes, characters should change, but never like this...not ever like this.

It's too quick. Too sudden. :/

It's like Majora's Mask. The final boss just keeps transforming ._.
qwirky on September 9th, 2010 02:00 pm (UTC)
Or like many JRPGs. :D You think you're done with the final boss... no, he transformed. Now you're done. No, wait, he transformed again. I think this is transformation #3, unless one counts his cocoon phase as a form. :x

Ssssssooooo... the Hougyoku must be trying out all these new forms on Aizen because it's trying to settle in better, right?

I mean:

First, it went with the Giant Condom look - after all, it'd just witnessed Tousen prance around with that one, and maybe it thought it pretty cool.

Then it went the Semi Hollow route - because it'd just witnessed Ichigo mope around with that one, and maybe it thought it pretty sexy (though a little shotaish).

After that, it tried creating a Pretty Butterfly.

No idea where that one came from.

Maybe it just associated Tousen = Insect with Prettier Insect = Butterfly?

And now, it seems to have decided that CHAD is the best example of SEX ON LEGS at its disposal - what with his sculpted body and AWESOME ABS.

Maybe it's just seen episode 287 too.

Unfortunately for Aizen, I expect the Hougyoku to soon find out that there can only be ONE CHAD in the entirety of the Bleach universe.

So next week, I predict a 'Screw this s***' scene - with our poor Hougyoku abandoning Aizen and begging Rukia-chan to take it back and teach it how to be pretty again.

Aaah, if only.

Hobaby, go back to Rukia-mommy! <3

Aizen is transforming into Father now, which makes the Hougyoku a Philosopher Stone. So everybody knows how to stop Aizen now.

Side note don't sign me up for face splitting and getting pulled to the sides of my new face. Must be a side effect of keeping your mullet silky-smooth and smelling of Bad Spirits.

Ichigo wants to finish this fast because he needs to do better than the anime at eyesex, so it comes off out of character. I mean it has been 3 months and he is 16 that is a very long time, I bet he has a bunch of skyscrapers again at the thought.
qwirky on September 9th, 2010 03:43 pm (UTC)
... Toushirou transforms into his alter ego, Edward Elric, and saves the day while Ichigo and everyone cheers him on? :x

Great hair, terrible... everything else T_T

The anime really did set the bar high on the eyesex~

I love the Bleach 419 Page. It's the most emotional face that we've got from Aizen until now. He's very angry. And Ichigo looks very mature.

Aizen who loves to control people, now somehow it's like he's the one who is controlled by the thing that he obsessed the most (the hougyoku). Oh the irony..

And I still don't like this new Ichigo. He has shown no emotion even after he saw that ugly thing that Aizen has become to in page 10. Ichigo is a boy who wore his heart in his sleeve during all the fights he had been through, but now he has none ? Something smell fishy..

Somehow Ichigo's "I'm sick and tired of your logic" is what fandom feel toward Aizen right now :XD. I'm not blaming Ichigo for killing that Ugly Thing formerly known as Aizen. But somehow, if Aizen dies, all the plot regarding Hougyoku and Aizen's plan for sending Rukia to Ichigo's side (the destiny theme of that first meeting)seems a waste.

But Kubo-sensei can pull a surprise

I love Kubo for taking up the disgusting gross factor :D He looks SOOOO much better now! And Ichigo? Well, still keeping up the badassity that he has been lacking so far imo...
Malva: ysoserious?malva_lv on September 9th, 2010 03:07 pm (UTC)
Is the Hougyoku secretly Lady Gaga's stylist? *brickd*

Aizen continues to evolve into more and more ridiculous forms. Still, Aizen finally looks like what we've known him to be all along - not a god but a monster. And so he has failed in his aspirations though he himself of course does not recognize this.

Ichigo worries me. It's eerie how stoic he is, how different from the Ichigo before the training in Dangai. There's something sorrowful about him now... Makes me wonder what exactly happened in his inner world and what he had to give up to get the power that he has now.

Is it just me or Ichigo looks terribly like Urahara in these last chapters??
May I call him hawt mess?? xD

And eehh... Aizen? Miracle of evolution or what? How much more will Pokemon Aizen evolve anyway?

I just wish that Kubo would make chapters with more information... C'mon, Tite, a whole-20pages-chapter and all we have to see is Aizen and his new Lady Gaga outfit? Show us something more for f*ck's sake!
Tori: 00kim kibumviktorialouise on September 9th, 2010 04:07 pm (UTC)
this chapter had me smirking and thinking that ooh i knew aizen would do that. he'll show his powers. he'll use it as an ace as if to taunt and get the upper hand on the battle. i kind of got bored coz i was so looking forward to see ichigo's transformation.

i was actually thinking this chapter would have flashbacks as to how ichigo defeated the hollow in him and tensa zangetsu. but alas! it did not happen. rather aizen did another transformation. for someone who didn't want to be a monster but a god, he only transformed into an even more despicable form. the ultimate hollow for having three holes. ahahaha!

ichigo stoically watching aizen's gross transformation and indifference to pain when attacked are killing me. hehe! excitement is killing me, actually. so i hope the next chapter will really make up for this one's annoyingly aizen-crappy chapter. :/
