Q: what is more beautiful than Ichigo and Hollow-Ichigo going Bankai at the same time?
A: Nothing!


Chapter 260 Review


Why so late? :darn

I’m really sorry about the delay but on Saturday when I started writing this review, I realized I have an unexpected company in my room: an ugly little black-gray mouse that was shamelessly staring at me with those evil-looking eyes of his. Worse came to worst when I realized he has a brother too. “What should I do?” the boy behind the computer asked himself. “Blast the house into oblivion, massacre the neighbors and surrender myself to the police? Or call for back up?” he thought within himself.
After 2 days of brutal battle between the army of darkness (being them) and army of angles (being us the humans) we finally managed to send them to heaven. Peace be upon them…

Now let’s start the review

This was the chapter we were all waiting for since 2005! The last battle Chad actually won was when he fought that weird Tatsuhusa guy In SS Arc.




But he lost every single fight after that,

Against Captain Shunsui Kyōraku...
and then Against Yammy :(
...and again this time Against D-Roy :s





Now before we get to his new power let’s go back to chapter 224. This is what Uruhara thought about Chad’s power. In fact Uruhara knew from the beginning that Chad (Or Sado, i prefer Chad!) has hollow powers but for some reasons he didn’t say anything…what a mysterious character!



And after that, in the same chapter, we suddenly see the hollow Ichigo. Kubo has told us what his true powers were long ago but I never noticed! I was always wondering what those new powers could be but I never imagined he had hollow powers inside of him. This is Chad’s release form and man, what a kick ass form! His second arm totally blew me away.





Time limit?

It seems unlike Ichigo who can only hold his hollow power for 9 seconds, Chad has absolute control over them in other words, there is no time limit and I am really happy about that. It’s very frustrating to see Ichigo so powerful for 9 seconds and suddenly so week that even a retired 900 years old ex-espada can kick his ass.
Now that Chad is back let him be cocky while he can, he'll eventually have to fight an espada and things won't go as smoothly. I want to see him beating the crap out of at least one espada with his arms.


Hueco Mundo can help controlling hollow powers?

According to Chad this is the first time he has experienced it.



Does H. Mundo help awakening someone’s 'true' power? Is that why Uruhara had no hesitation over sending them there in the first place? Or are these all preparations for Ichigo to finally get that hollow inside of him under control? Is that even possible?
I personally think he won’t be able to have absolute control over him. The hollow has to much power, having him in a fight with another espada is like having Kon fighting with Byakuya in his Bankai Form! It’s so one sided.

On the final note, his opponent’s true form is ugly as hell. Reminds me of some of those disgusting bugs in my garden! Ewwwwww….



This is what Chad needs:


Rating: 5 out of 5. This chapter had everything I wanted to see therefore I also give it my “Editors' choice” :)

Credits: Uberly cool people over at M7. Also the beautiful work at the beginning of my review is from www.animepaper.net

One more thing, I used a lot of pictures from previous chapter because I believe they illustrate my point better than anything else or as you English people say “Pictures speak for themselves”. Do you guys like this style or do I have to stick with pictures only from the most recent chapter?
Let me know what you guys think!
Btw, the arc review will be done soon, as long as those pesky animals leave me alone at home!
