-Break down of Bleach Manga 346 is below-
This is the first week that iareawesomeness has done a breakdown of Bleach manga so many of you may be first time readers. For those few who have never visited the site before, let me tell you that I don’t take myself very seriously, I break down most issues with a tongue in cheek review, and I base most of my predictions and opinions off of emotions and not fact, which makes me wrong a lot but entertaining to argue with. The site will do the same with Bleach that it has been done with Naruto, which means character posts, goofs and analysis are on the way. Obviously not everyone that reads Naruto is a Bleach reader so I’m looking for authors to write on different Bleach subjects for the blog like we do for Naruto. If you’re interested email me at Jeremiah@iareawesomenss.com and give me an idea that you’d like to write about. So with out further delay…
Ichigo is having a ruff go at Ulquiorra and I know how the cycle goes but this time it seems different. It’s not the typical underdog battle that we are used to, where Ichigo doesn’t get any respect from his enemy until he digs really deep and pulls off the upset. This time Ulquiorra seems to be playing with Ichi and I’m thinking this is going to be the end of the story arc. Ulquiorra easily cracked Ichi’s hollow mask and as we see later in the issue, Ichi doesn’t change the tide much…
Orihime is so calm now… her demeanor has totally changed since her experience in Hueco Mundo. Who knows what direction her character will take after this arc settles and the character development starts again. Let me know in the comments section what you think Inoue’s future in the manga will be like. Until then we’ll vote on how big a part she will be once the dust settles.
With Orihime back it’s pretty much mission accomplished. Many of us want to see Ichi win every fight but can’t we keep some in the tank for another story arc? This arc has been massive and the key was getting Orihime back so is there any reason to have this battle continue any longer? In my opinion, no. I’ll explain more after I get an idea of where you guys stand…
Ulquiorra obviously does not fear Ichigo at all. He knows his limits, he’s measured him up and he knows that he is just that much stronger. It’s like in any fight, if the opposition offers you a free chance to hit them then it’s usually to intimidate the opponent. Sometimes its just for sadistic purposes (see Kenpachi) but not every one is looking to get off on pain. In this case it’s like Ulquiorra is showing Ichigo that he should run and run quickly, not try to humiliate him while kicking his ass.
After Ichigo fires off Gatsuga, Ulquiorra is completely unharmed and doesn’t even really seem amused at Ichigo’s level of power. Ulquiorra has been one of my favorite characters since he arrived on the scene so I almost hesitate as I write about his power because I want him to be as strong, or stronger than Ichigo. Is that a bad thing?
Another thing about that panel that I’d like to point out is that Ulquiorra mentions that Ichigo is “Just human after all.” This is interesting if you think about the possibility of the next or future story lines. The Captains have mentioned that these humans may be Shinigami one day when they come to Soul Society. Who’s to say that Ichigo has hit his limit and Ulquiorra is about to send him to Soul Society the hard way. What would Ichigo’s limit be if not tied down by the restraints of being human? Something to chew on considering the situation that he’s in.
The big thing this issue was Ulquiorra’s ability to use black cero or Cero Oscuras as he calls it. Ichigo gets enveloped in the darkness which he seems to have taken head on. Is Ichigo going to win this fight or is he going to just barely get away with his life… or >_< without his life. What do you think?
Well that’s about it for this issue. I didn’t realize how different it would be writing about Bleach rather than Naruto… I feel like a fish out of water >_< But it’s the first time so I’m sure it will feel like home soon. Let me know what you think in the comments section and hopefully we can have the same great discussions about Bleach that we do with Naruto ^_^ I’m not sure if the same spoiler hunters from the Naruto section read Bleach so feel free to post links to spoilers once they start coming out in the comments section and I’ll be posting them as they hit the net as well.
