(Sorry for the late post. I had a cold last week that was so bad, I couldn’t even stand up straight. I feel better now, though.)

253. Don’t Call Me Nino

Well, here it is–the end of the fight. I figured, along with most other people, that it wouldn’t last that long, and it was indeed only half a volume long (as was the Ichigo-Ikkaku fight).

Presentation-wise, I noticed that Doldooni’s release, Hiraruda, looked less awkward in this chapter than when we first saw it–even when it went all Medusa on us before Ichigo filleted him. I think it’s just reflective of how the general look of the series, particularly during the fights, is becoming smoother and more polished. But in the case of the chapter, that didn’t really help, as it didn’t add to the suspense very much.

Seeing Ichigo block Hiraruda one-handed, without the mask on, killed any chance that we’d be surprised that Ichigo would own him in Hollow form. On top of that, the fact that Doldooni went after Nell purposely again to provoke Ichigo left a pretty bad taste in my mouth–though it did give a better idea of why he was Privaron, since it seems like he’d consider fighting his opponent at full power more important that carrying out the mission.

Lengthwise, it was handled pretty well, though I wouldn’t have minded an extra page or two showing what at least ONE other person is doing right now. I guess that’s because this fight wasn’t that great to me–it didn’t add anything new to the table except Nell’s “Gorge ‘N Barf” defense, as someone so aptly put it in one of the discussion threads. I’m just glad that we’ll be able to focus on something else.

Let’s just hope it isn’t a “Las Noches” version of Ganjyu vs. Yumichika next.

Rating - 3/5

Despite how good it looked, the fight seemed even more boring than last week, but it’s over and done with now–meaning that we’ll see something new next week for sure. If the fight hadn’t ended in this chapter, I’d definitely have rated it lower, though.
