Bleach 413

[scanlation by Binktopia]

Yes, Isshin, Bleach is still publishing

Back to focusing on Ichigo’s friends, and we’re still in the Deicide numbering scheme. The former is fine, the latter is incomprehensible.

Background of the week

Ichigo’s friends looting for supplies is actually fairly amusing. I don’t mind focusing on these kids. They’re decidedly less terrible than the main cast.

Years later, Kubo is finally getting back to Chizuru being the only one in this group who can’t sense spiritual aura. This storyline was interesting back when it was still fairly new, and while it’s lost almost all its momentum in the time it hasn’t been mentioned, it’s still more worthwhile than the current major plot.

This chase scene (or, more appropriately, this slow-walk scene) could work if anyone but Aizen was doing the chasing. Despite his broken abilities, his lack of proper character establishment means he’s not menacing whatsoever.

Similarly, all this pseudo-comedy could work, if only Aizen wasn’t involved.

Twist of the week

Final Flash: Actually, the “twist of the week” could be that I didn’t hate this chapter. The fact that Ichigo wasn’t involved in a non-horrible chapter is no coincidence.

    The thing was Chizuru is that she doesn’t know what’s going on. The fact that she’s awake guarantees she’s got spiritual pressure.

    How come Ichigo’s sisters are not with his friends? The older black-haired one (I think her name was Karin) was able to sense spiritual pressure from the beggining. It’s not like they are protected by Isshin or someone else. Kubo should have already had them meet with the rest of the group. Hell, Don Kanonji even made his appearance, why not them? I sure hope that they are not next week’s plot twist and that their disappearance is explained.
