(I decided to skip 257 to get this done ASAP. I hope nobody minds...)

258. Seele Schneider

As Borat would say, this chapter was “very nice~.”

We haven’t had a fight that involved more than rudimentary strategy since Ikkaku fought with Eduardo way back in Volume 23, over a year ago. But thanks to Uryuu’s intellect, he was able to utilize the multifaceted sword-bow that is Seele Schneider efficiently and effectively, throwing back everything Chirucchi sent at him. My only concern was that it seemed to complement all of her attacks a little bit too well—but I’m still glad that Ishida’s style now extends beyond “Hirenkyaku + shooting a lot of arrows.”

We also got a bit more development of Chirucchi, where she showed her desperation to win after being pushed into a corner. Unlike with Doldooni, who seemed hell-bent only on becoming an Espada again, she was willing to put her all into beating Ishida simply because of her role as an Arrancar. That sense of duty helped flesh her out beyond the typical “arrogant bitch” stereotype she had been typecast into so far, as she was willing to permanently give up her complete released form in order to keep fighting.

At the very least, it helped give the fight some of the extra weight it needed.

Rating - 4/5
