He is finally back and about damn time! The man who single-handedly took on the Gotei 13 (pretty much), makes his grand re-entrance in his usual cryptic style. Looks like without Kyouraku realising it, he got caught in Aizen’s Kyouka Suigetsu. I can’t believe I had been looking forward to this moment for so long and with such excitement, it is almost absurd how much I have come to love Aizen’s character since being out of focus. I guess sometimes you only realise how great a character is once they disappear from the focus of the story. Hopefully with Aizen free, Kubo-sensei has something really special planned for him.
Wow, that was quite the twist…so Ukitake survived his lung disease as a child because of the “mythical God” Mimihagi-sama, who happens to be the right arm of the Soul King. Ukitake’s lungs were offered as a sacrifice to Mimihagi-sama and since that moment Ukitake had expected for a time like such to arise, where he would have to invoke Mimihagi-sama again and use its power to save Soul Society from ruin. Ukitake with all of his internal organs as a sacrifice will give his life to become a vessel for Mimihagi-sama and become the new Soul King.
Oh Juhabach, he is going to be so surprised when things don’t work out the way he expects and foresees because something will inevitable happen that flips the whole situation around on him. Be it Ichigo doing something or Aizen appearing and messing with Juhabach’s senses ultimately distorting the “future” he foresees, in the end something IS going to happen to prevent the worlds from crumbling. I must admit though, I find myself quite distressed at seeing Ichigo once again trolled by an opponent and not even realise that him panicking is only making the situation more dire. Ichigo may be strong, but he seriously needs to think before reacting.
