Certainly not bad writing. Kubo's too clever.
So, now in our analogous arcs, after the Grimmjow = Renji fight, we have a dude with INCREDIBLE IMPOSSIBLE POWER and an eyepatch who's run around lost for chapters and chapters finally meeting up with the strong one he wants to fight for fun. Hello, Kenpachi? And does this mean another fight?
There's no Jump next week, so we may as well have another poll.
Will Ichigo Fight Noitra?
Oh yes, it seems to follow.
Hell no, he'd be cremated.
HE BETTER NOT. Parallels bore me.
If the fight is interrupted, who will interrupt it?
Ulquiorra bursts out of his bubble!
Stark chides Noitra "Now now, kid."
Shinji to the Rescue!
Look in the sky! Renji and Arrow Lad!
Look over there! It's Mecha Chad!
A revived Grimmy will seek vengance
Orihime shoots offensive at Noitra!
I have no idea.
I forgot to put HALIBEL and her Amazons as ones who could possibly interrupt the fight. This is very likely, if you think about it, because remember Noitra and Halibel not getting along?
