Bleach manga 349 <Spoiler><Pics><Raw><Translation>
-Breakdown of Bleach manga 348 is below-
This was an amazing issue of Bleach. It really justified a lot of the stuff we’d been talking about during the last couple weeks. The story had been getting stagnant but we, the loyal Bleach fanatics, didn’t give up. I feel like we are going to see the payoff for our patience in the upcoming issues, and I can’t wait to read it…
Ulquiorra is looking pretty fierce with his giant horns and all around satanic appearance, which is pretty bad ass looking. He’s given Ichigo every chance to back down it seems, but Ichigo isn’t having it. In the past, Ulquiorra has let Ichigo off the hook and let him walk away alive; this time, it’s different. He releases his final form, Segunda Espada, which he says that not even Aizen knows about, and that he’s the only one of the Espada to be able to do it. So does this make him stronger than Espada 1-3? He’s supposedly the only Espada capable of this level of release, so wouldn’t that make him the strongest? What do you think?
Orihime and Ishida are making their climb as quickly as possible and are feeling the ocean-like mass that is Ulquiorra’s riatsu. I thought that Orihime’s arrival would cool Ulquiorra’s temper and would be Ichigo’s only chance at survival, but this just wasn’t the case. She didn’t get there in time and Ichigo refused to quit, so this culminated in…
This was something I’d been talking about since we expanded to covering Bleach… Ulquiorra had made a comment that no human could ever dream of obtaining a power that could rival his. This led me to consider the possibility that Ichigo was going to kick the bucket soon. His father had to have died at some point, Urahara had to have died at some point, and both are living normal lives on earth, so why not Ichigo? This would release the restraints on his potential and begin his ascent to Soul Society… or would it? His riatsu has been compared to a hollow, not a shinigami, so would Ichigo be headed to Soul Society if he died?
Ichigo got his neck snapped and a basketball-sized hole in his chest… all the nay sayers have to admit that his death is a possibility at this point. Orihime just arrived on the scene, so potentially she could “reject” the fatal injuries, but what would that change? Ulquiorra will still be right there and Ichigo would still be stuck in a human body, limiting his potential. As I’ve said before, Ichigo dying would be good for the manga and make things a whole hellava lot more interesting. To see what he goes through and where he would go after he died would be awesomeness to say the least. So lets ask the question again…
I’m excited to see what happens next week for the first time in a while! This is great stuff. I just hope they don’t puss out and save him somehow and create some miraculous comeback victory over Ulquiorra. What do you think will happen in the next issue? Do you want to see Ichigo die to make the manga interesting again?
I know a lot of you dig the Naruto demotivational posters I do for the weekly Naruto breakdowns, so I’m going to start doing them for Bleach, too. Hope you like em.
