Bleach Chapter 536-544 – The Embrace Of Bonds

Bleach chapter 542 - The Blade is Me - by i-azu (http://i-azu.deviantart.com)

The Blade is Me – colour by i-azu

This final arc in Bleach has seriously won me over and with each chapter, it gets better and better, it is such a pleasure to read. All the separated threads created and developed in past chapters have started to weave together and have begun to form an image that embodies just what Bleach is about.

Bleach Chapter 522 – It Flows Like This

Bleach Chapter 522 - Ichigo and Renji's sick pose

Ichigo and Renji just got Nimaiya’d, so incredibly hilarious!

Hahah wow, I was not expecting Nimaiya Ouetsu to be so charismatic, hilarious and awesome, what a pleasant surprise. I was expecting him to be serious, somewhat bland and underwhelmingly charismatic, but his introduction this chapter changed that perspective completely, he just oozes out awesomeness. He’s weird, extremely weird, but that’s what makes him so amusing and interesting to watch/follow.

Bleach 497-500 – The Maelstrom Of Despair And Courage

Bleach Chapter 499 - Kurosaki Ichigo - colour by VitalikLoL (http://vitaliklol.deviantart.com)

The Rescuer in the Dark, Kurosaki Ichigo – colour by VitalikLoL (http://vitaliklol.deviantart.com)

Beyond the shadow of doubt and the darkness of fright, a ray of light filled with warmth and resolution pierces the apprehensive filled moment revealing a source of courage capable of shattering all unease tormenting ones mind. A reason to attach ones hope onto, a foundation to support ones self back onto, a hero to cast ones belief in. Just as easily as fear and despair can paralyze someone, belief and courage can melt it all away.

Soul Society gripped by a terror so unfamiliar and close begin to waver and despair. Facing a reality so unknown and so foreign causes fear and hestitation to overwhelm whatever remains of courage and hope they have left. At a lose of what to do, they turn to their savour, Kurosaki Ichigo, whose presence and ability sparks up their will to fight once again.

Bleach Chapter 491-496 – Shades Of War

Bleach Chapter 494 - cover

The Gotei 13; Genryuusai Yamamoto, Sui-Feng, Rose, Unohana, Hirako, Byakuya, Komamura, Shunsui, Kensei, Toushirou, Kenpachi, Mayuri, Ukitake

Wow, so the Quincy were this tough, who would have guessed they would overwhelm the Shinigami to such an extent, although it’s more due to their plan (those “sealing medals”) than their fighting ability which we have only just seen the tip of. Now I begin to wonder, why hasn’t Uryuu shown off such power? Now I understand these Quincy are different from Uryuu but does Uryuu  have the capacity to reach the level where he can dispose of a Gotei 13 vice-captain like s/he was nothing? It certainly will  be interesting to see what Uryuu does during these events.

Bleach Chapter 484 – For The Sake Of Peace

Bleach Chapter 484 - the Empires King

Thats a pretty big cloak he has and he certainly does have some nice boots!

This King sure caught my eye, blowing (?) off one of his underlyings arms in order to stop the fight/squabble that was taking place right in front of him – he sure does stretch the meaning of peace to a strict definition. He seems like the type who would forceful end conflict before it inflates into something huge. While his actions are seemingly contrary to “peace” at first, this King does seem to want to end serious conflict before it begins even if through twisted and perverse means. Plus this guy has one badass character design.

Bleach Chapter 483 – Echoes Of The End

Bleach Chapter 483 - Yamamoto Genryuusai

Ohhhhhhhhhh YEAH! How badass Yamamoto Genryuusai

Now that was an enjoyable Bleach chapter; badass Ichigo and Soul Society in crisis, how exciting. I was not expecting it, but Ichigo has become quite the thinker in battle, analyzing his opponent and noticing the strangeness in his actions – I guess his training with the Fullbringers helped after all.

Bleach Chaper 482 – Fragments Of A Fued

Bleach Chapter 482 - The Quincy Return

The return of the Quincy and the revival of a deep seeded hatred?

Ho ho ho, so the Quincy return, this certainly is surprising. When I read the title of this arc the first time – “The Thousand-Year Blood War Arc” – I had thought that it was too short to be referring to the War between Hollow and Shinigami and I had thought that it was too long to be referring to the War between the Quincy and the Shinigami, but it looks like I read the “most of the Quincy were wiped out over 200 years ago” too literally, focusing on the ‘200 years ago’ closing my mind off to the possibility that 800 years before that something between the Quincy and Shinigami may have sparked the two factions fued causing this Thousand-Year Blood War to begin.

Bleach Chapter 480-481 – Imbalance

Bleach Chapter 481 - Ivan Azgiaro - coloured by Azley (http://azley.deviantart.com)

Hello hello, you certainly look like an interesting fellow, good sir - coloured by Azley (http://azley.deviantart.com)

Well well, so The Thousand-Year Blood War Arc begins, an interesting set-up so far – Hollows are disappearing at a rapid rate which will cause problems for the barrier between the Human World and Soul Society if nothing is down to stop the disappearances. The imbalance caused by the greater amount of souls existing in the Human World will start to cause Soul Society to spill into the Human World effectively mixing life and death.

Bleach Chapter 462-479 – Answers That We Seek

Bleach Chapter 475 - Ginjou Kuugo by Athakra (http://athakra.deviantart.com)

Those sad and distant eyes... - coloured by Athakra (http://athakra.deviantart.com)

Judging and perceiving, I thought I read his character, but once again I begin to realise the limits to my own views. I thought he had no heart, I saw him as sinister, I classed him evil, I labelled him the “bad guy”, but within all that twisitedness and darkness surrounding him, their was a man with a heart, a man with love and warmth, neither good nor bad, just a man lost within his own self, within the darkness in his own heart.
