ITT: Bleach is bad and we should feel bad for reading it 10 years in a row.

And now reading this post is hilarious.


And guess what else? Urahara is back! And he actually did something important.

No, that entire spoiler (which apparently involved his bankai letting him travel through time) was fake.\

Also, I just found this.

I love that the anime staff clearly thinks much the same of Kubo that we do.

Well I guess we know why Aizen bitched so much about the Spirit King now. Guess it's like the Silent King from Planescape.

Ten to one, the reason it dropped him is to go with Ichigo.

That pretty much goes without saying.

>This chapter


Ya'know, Ichigo's new form was retarded for more than just appearance........It didn't really do anything, it just blew up.


>It didn't really do anything, it just blew up.
What? It destroyed most of Aizen's current body (he apparently needed an entirely new one that grew out of the old one) and everything else in a very wide area. Which was exactly what was needed to weaken Aizen enough for the Hogyoku to reject him.

And then it fell apart, hence, it just blew up.

Why does that matter? It accomplished exactly what it was meant to do.

That fact that it did so immediately, in one action, instead making a bunch of meaningless attacks leading up to the only one that mattered, does not make doing so "nothing".

Wow that was the most unsatisfying end ever.

But man oh man I would hit this with the force of ten thousand exploding suns.

he is rather pretty, isn't he?


It's narratively unsatisfying.

You're a loser. You lost; all your plans and ambition meant shit. Big surprise.

But strangely short for Kubo. Like he just gave up or someone got his shit together.

I get that, but not how "it didn't really do anything" isn't objectively false.

In hind sight the change in appearance wasn't even leading up to a "super mode" thing, just part of using that one attack.
I mean, Ichigo seemed pretty different when he first used it, but from this chapter it seemed all he did was get a cloak and something in his hair. Kind of like how Renji's bankai gives him that fur thing.

I'm honestly OK with it , since I really can't imagine anything else to do that wouldn't just be padding. And who am I kidding, this probably isn't the end of the battle, and definitely isn't the end of Aizen.

Now I know its been 400 chapters since the beginning... but didn't Ichigo get his powers from Rukia giving him her powers?
I'm sure another good stab to the chest by a shinigami will give his powers back

Well, it gave him the power he had then. Once he lost Rukia's power Urahara had to force him to get his own.

It may very well have made him incapable of getting soul reaper power in any manner.

So, spirit king confirmed for final boss then?

Though I'm saddened by a lot of what Aizen's been doing and acting for the past while, I at least still admire his last words. I'm hoping that once we get some backstory, he'll be the stand-up guy I always knew him to be.

Or something like that anyway.

You can take those leather pants and choke to death on them.

>It may very well have made him incapable of getting soul reaper power in any manner.

...of course he never said anything about loosing his hollow powers.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Kind of like Chad.

Wait, wait, wait...

Ichigo and Chad team up and become the Super Hollow Duo?

I'm pretty sure it's implied strongly that hollow and shinigami powers are two sides of the same coin, but Kubo can do whatever he wants. He's the goddamn master retard writer of this world.

Yeah, his last words were pretty badass, I'll admi--

..Have...have you even been reading this series?


Of course I have! I just don't think Aizen's a bad a guy as everyone's making him out to be. He obviously wants to change things in Soul Society; perhaps, I suspect, for the better. Maybe even for the Hollows.

So I'm putting a bet down that he'll have some good-guyish backstory. And I won't BAWW or whine over it like it seems a lot of you are going to. The only thing I'm disappointed in was that he didn't stay cool and suave right to the end, like the classy man I wanted him to be.

Soo.. the whole god complex, secretly experimenting on innocents, manipulating people all over the goddamn place, straight up declairing he was going to eat Ichigo, killing Soul society's government as part of his plan to kill Rukia and take the pebble of doom inside her, and assorted other things were just a reflection of his inner nobility as he heroically tried to change soul society for the better?
.....Goddamn. That "absolute hypnosis" bullshit works even better than advertised.

Fuckin fanboys/girls


Pretty much, yeah. Are you going to deny that the status quo in Soul Society sucks? That the Central 46 were assholes of the highest calibre? And lets not ignore all those times where Aizen just flat-out didn't kill people when it would have been his benefit to do so (or at least no more trouble than it would have been to do so).

Obviously, he's a bad guy. But does that mean his intentions, or his end-game, wasn't some brutal Bolshevik revolution type-deal, where the ends justify the means? No it doesn't.

So shut yer mouf and SIDDOWN, ya know-nuthin' PUNK! And we'll just see how it goes, shall we?

Or it could be that he really is the megalomaniac he presents himself as, and really does just want to be more powerful than everyone. Just because he's pretty doesn't mean he's secretly a good guy, even if you really want him to be. Now let's just let it go and see how badly Kubo fucks things up, ok?


Tiki's right, his deathrant suggests pretty strongly that Kubo's going to go for a FOR THE GREATER GOOD thing.

That doesn't mean it won't be retarded - it probably will. And it doesn't mean that I care. Maybe I would if this wasn't the very first time we heard that the Spirit King was secretly a douche. Probably not, though.

Even if the Soul King turns out to be evil and Aizen wanted to destroy him, I still doubt Aizen's intentions were at all altruistic.

Fuck you, I'm a fangirl and I want Aizen to stay his evil douche self. Though I wished he had kept his cool to the end, that would have been way more fun and sinister.

> I still doubt Aizen's intentions were at all altruistic.

Especially since, even you're an "ends justify the means" type person. That still doesn't mean you go completely out of your way to be the biggest douche you can possibly be to achieve those ends.

Such as luring a young girl to fall in love with you to help out with your plans then stabbing her while wearing a big douche-tastic smile just to rub in how much you destroyed every aspect of her world.
...then later creating an illusion in which you make the other people who care about her stab her damn near to death again!

No, sorry, there really is no justifying Aziens actions. Maybe if he'd gone about it differently, then yeah, I could maybe see all this as him striving for the "greater good". But with everything we've seen of Aizen, I think it's pretty obvious that his plan to replace the Spirit King (if that was what he was planning, I'm not even sure anymore) was completely motivated by his own lust for power and had nothing to do with trying to help Soul Society.

psst. nurse. come over here to the side of the thread for a second.

you're not a retard. i don't think anon is talking about you.

I'm pretty sure that Aizen actually did have good intentions... like two hundred years ago.
However, he was too willing to compromise, too in love with his own perfection and power that he lost his way.
I do believe that the fact that not a single shinigami (besides Tousen) has been confirmed to be dead is deliberate on his part. Aizen probably believes he's doing the soul society a favor, and that they'll see things his way.
...The Arrancar, however, were nothing but scapegoats, something for the shinigami to rally against. Aizen probably saw it as his duty as a shinigami to arrange their demise, especially if he only saw them as hollows, abominations to be purified.
...His biggest mistake was relying on the Hougyouku instead of Kyouka Suigetsu. It turned him into a monster instead of a god, and then it just went and turned on him. Aizen ended up being so deluded that he believed that his Zanpaktou dissolving meant he was becoming more powerful, instead of it meaning he was as near death as the Hougyouku would allow him to be.
...Maybe when he's sealed he'll have a chance to reexamine his life and ask 'where did I go wrong?' but I doubt his arrogance will allow him to do so.

No. It'll just turn out that Aizen basically cast this grand illusion on himself of being this Machiavellian architect for greater change, losing his need for his glasses or other physical and mental imperfections and becoming essentially a transcended god of brilliance and perfect reason in his head and his actions. The more he believed in this the darker and more sadistic he became. When he lost all that confidence folds and he becomes a scared little boy who needs to cast small shades of his better world to not kill himself in the seal.


I think he just...really lost it when he finally got 'dat Hoogykoo. Drunk on power; THAT close to doing what he wanted to do. I know the feeling well. You make mistakes. You go a bit crazy.

Not to say that he isn't a cunt or anything. But just because he is doesn't mean that he couldn't have ideals. Way back until recently, I'd even pondered on whether all of his actions were just to make everyone hate him and that all the actions they took to stop him were the actual actions he wanted to achieve. Would've been nice if that were the case, but alas...

Did you also kill people without any remorse before that? Why do you want Aizen to be redeemed by some greater cause he didn't give a shit about ever explaining or putting into place before?


I think you're stretching my motives here a bit. I simply believe it'd be a better story for it. Besides, in his own dickish, warped way, Aizen has shown 'compassion', if not remorse. LOSERS feel remorse for not winning, afterall. Compassion, however, is revealed when he argues with Yamamoto over his treatment of Wonderweiss, and indeed, the reason given for him stabbing his VC was also compassion-based (though I'm more certain he was saying and doing most of that to piss Hitsu off).

Before I make any final judgements on the matter though, I want to see if Halibel is still alive. That'll get me one way or the other on the matter.

One thing I have yet to fathom though is his reaction when Ichigo comes out super-strong, when that's exactly what Aizen intended happen when destroying the soul-train. Shit's illogical, even in the event Aizen didn't think he'd get THAT strong.

In my head I wanna compare Aizen to Roah, someone evil to the core and willing to do whatever it takes to get his way, however not without good intentions and even the occasional kind act to see justice done and even a hero to some ignorant of his ways........but the more I think about it, the more I realize Aizen is just a weenie.

It says BLEACH right on the box.
