Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
Stark's Los Lobos
Nnoitara's Santa Teresa
Nell: Great one, she's funny, cool and powerful, I believe kubo worked very well in Nell
Ulquiorra: The "godly" aspect that Kubo is giving him is great, his speech and actions just intimidate everyone in his way
Szayelapollo: Great and perfect strategist, he was only defeated because Mayuri is another great Strategist; Szayel can counter every attack he saw, good enough to become one of the top 3!
Hehe, my bad Tsuki, I was referring about my top 3 arrancars!
I just forgot to implement the statement, lol
He's so brassy xD;<3
He's INSANE. That auto's +100 cool points imo =<
He makes me lol =< Cuz he thinks he's the secks but he's only moderately noticable on the scale of awesomeness. STILL<3
A) I need a woman on the list [She represents<3] B) I heard the 'Bleach Beat Collections- Nel Tu'. 1st song is the best thing ever, like a 4 year old on a sugar high at a rave ^_^~
1. ulquiorra he's just the best and his hair is ace just wish that when ichigo fights him he manages to smash his helmet to bits so we can see all of it
2. neliel youve got to love her cuteness in child form and sheer power in adult
3. grimjow the blue hair is amazing
4. halibel female espada are rare and she is in the top 3
5. stark he is a ncie evil dude

1. Nel Tu Oderschvank
2. Ulquiorra Schiffer
1) Grand Fisher (non-hybridized) - GF, to me, represents what's missing from the current Arrancar as antagonists. He had lots of experience with Shinigami, a truly horrible ability--using the image of someone you love to create openings--and a sickening propensity to target women and little girls. He was a monster; an inhuman beast with no morals and no redeemable qualities, who took away Ichigo's mother because of his disgusting fetish.
As Arrancar, none of the Numeros will ever be as odious as him. They're still crazy, yes, but they aren't driven by insanity or instability to feed, and they're supposed to be more human in nature--which GF himself showcased in his fight with Isshin. Also, none of the remaining Arrancar have long history with the main characters; any connections they have were forged in the past month or two.
GF is, and will probably always be, my favorite villain in the series. He, Mayuri and Aizen are the only ones I wanted to see killed.
2) Grimmjow - There are several reasons why he's a favorite. His arrogant way of carrying himself; his callous disregard for the lives of others; his fighting style, which blends sword arts and hand-to-hand street fighting (something I've always wanted Ichigo to do); and his voice actor, Junichi Suwabe, who's done a great job with GJ and other cool characters (Greed from FMA, Atobe from PoT, Seymore from FFX, etc.). He might not be the strongest Espada, but he's definitely the coolest IMO.
3) Nel (kid form) - She's such a sweetie.
Seriously, though, I like her because she's the most unique of ALL the hollows we've seen in the series, personality wise. Most of the normal Hollows are bloodthirsty beasts; the Numeros are all shonen vilain archetypes; Adult Nell prides herself as a saint for being reasonable among evil spirits, and has a dully chauvenistic design.
But Kid Nell? Who else is like her? She'd a toddler-sized, tactless pottymouth with a lisp, who has the propensity to headbutt people and/or punch them in the crotch. As great as the cast in Bleach is, Nell is one of the rare likeable AND original ones. She's so much fun.
4) Wonderweiss - Rather than try to explain it, it'd be better if you watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRtU-ICG-gQ
Other honorable mentions: Edorad, The Top 4 Espada, Yammi (for being such an entertaining punching bag), Luppi (for being such a satisfying kill), and Halibel's Fracciones.

So, what's your favorite espada released now that we've seen them all? I'm gonna have to go with Barragan. He just looks awesome, not to mention unique (no trace of humanity in it at all).

well since they are the main enemies at this point.
I expected them to look really terrifying or powerful.
and so far Ulqs segunda etapa and Barragans bad to the bone release
are my favourites. but I have to go with segunda etapa.
which reminds me is the poll refering to looks or in terms of resureccion abilities etc?
I'll just go through the list and pick one at the end:
10/0 Yammi: Kinda lame, from an already giant unreleased state, to an even bigger one.
9 Aaroniero: His ability was cool (to copy the appearence and abilities of those absorbed), but his release was lame, it was just Kaien Shiba's body on top of a big blob of stuff, that's what it honestly looked like.
8 Syazel: Just wierd looking in every way, makes it even grosser when he is reborn from Nemu.
7 Zommari: First of the kinda cool releases, turns him into a pumpkin with a bunch of eyes, too bad it completely ruined his whole "having the fastest sonido" thing since he no longer had legs.
6 Grimmjow: I liked this one a lot, turned Grimmjow, who was known to be some kind of wild cat (eg. tiger, leopard, lion, etc.) into a very feline looking figure, plus, it had cool abilities (elbow bullet things, and his energy claws).
5 Noitora: Lame, just looks like him plus 2/4 more arms, I guess it goes with the whole, being only pure power thing though.
4 Ulquiorra: Awesome, looks like a normal human with bat wings in primera etapa, and then looks even more badass in the segunda etapa.
3 Halibel: Pretty good, although I have to say it reduced her sexy factor (I think she looked better unreleased but with her jacket open, but her abilities were lame since she couldn't overpower hitsu.
2 Barragan: This one is badass, turns his whole boddy into like, a skeleton with black smoky stuff around it, looks like a grim reaper with a giant axe.
1 Stark: Better than some of the lame releases (eg. Aaroniero, Yammi, Syazel, Noitora), but not liking the cowboy thing that much, it's alright though.
My top 3:
Either Barragan's or Yammi's. Probably Barragan's it was extremely badass how he turned into a skeleton.
But Yammi's turned him into a beast and/or dinasaur.
@Ohzero: I'm pretty sure that it's how it looks since Darth does say now that we've "seen them all" not "seen what they can do"(since Stark hasn't actually done something in his released form).
Looks (though feel free to praise their abilities too). Ability-wise it's a tie between aaroneiro and barragan for me.
And actually, concept wise barragan's abilities are eerily similar to abilities I designed for a shinigami I made up:
I figured one of his quirks was that his shikai is better than his bankai:
shikai - stops time completely in an area around him
bankai - scythe with a detachable spinning blade that ages and disintegrates anything it touches instantly
You guys didn't like Nnoitora's release? I thought the crescent thing was hella awesome and that his silhouette with the scythes looked friggin badass. Maybe I'm just a sucker for blades.
I, on the other hand, hated Grimmjow's release, which I thought took away that punky, devil-may-care quality of his and replaced it with a skinny little pussy (pun intended).
I'll do what Eddy01741 did.
Yammy - Never liked him. His release did nothing for me.
Aaroniero - Liked him as Kaien. Nejibana is a cool ass weapon. But his resurrection.....EW.
Szayel - I liked the whole swallowing the sword thing, but his resurrected form is just weird to me.
Zommari - Maybe my favorite. Not his actual form, but the way he released (breaking his neck and the sword bending). That was really cool. His actual released form is....meh.
Grimmjow - One of the better ones, in my opinion. The anime really made him look so damn cool. Just get rid of the long hair and it's perfect.
Noitora - One of my favorite characters. Cool name and a cool design. His resurrected form, however, also did nothing for me.
Ulquiorra - Another character who I liked in their non-resurrected state. His Segunda Etapa was pretty cool. There's one panel where he really looks like a monster from hell:
Harribel - Another whose sealed state was better looking than their resurrection. Her bone-mouth was really really cool. Her resurrection is....meh. I don't like her giant sword thingy at all.
Barragan - Yet another one.....his bone crown was cool. He even had a cool axe. His resurrected form is okay. Doesn't excite me that much.
Stark (who I REFUSE to call "Starrk") - I'll decide how I feel about him when this week chapter comes out. He looks cool so far.
So.....my favorite, I guess is Grimmjow's, but only because all of the others are "meh".
All of their un-resurrected forms are much better than their resurrected, imo.
Is that strange?
