Bleach 397

How do you follow the worst manga chapter in a year? Let’s find out.

Don’t do extreme closeups of body parts when you can’t draw them properly.

You’re right, Aizen; it does seem strange that Ichigo encountered a Hollow for the first time mere moments after meeting Rukia. I was chalking that up to awful writing, but now you’re telling me that it’s all according to keika– er, plan. Great. That reflects well on the author.

As I continue reading, it seems the entirety of page six is a testament to Kubo’s pitiful writing. Not only can he not write, but now he’s even trying to take my job! Well, we’ll see about that.

… apparently he can’t draw, either. At least, not in a fashion that produces character designs that are pleasing to the eye. Proof positive: page 7, center panel.

I hate those ugly melting backgrounds as in the last panel of page 13. If I wanted to know what your manga looked like when set on fire, I’d light it up myself, thanks.

Right on cue, without a hint of surprise, Isshin appears.

Final Flash: Bleach is cementing its position as the embarrassment to shonen manga.
