As Ichigo moves closer, Aizen watches over everything as if nothing has happened. So villainous…



Boooooooo, you’re always late.

I know, sorry everybody for the very late review. If I tell you why it’s late you won’t believe me but in short: I tried to change my IP address but I screwed up so bad I had to reinstall my windows! Being pissed at my computer I forgot to backup my files and everything got deleted after I formatted my drive. My original review was pretty good, I worked a lot on it but I don’t have it anymore. So I decided to write this one instead. I Hope you enjoy reading it.


Chapter 261

This was a really nice chapter. It started with Chad showing off his new powers and beating the crap out of a former Espada and ended by his ass being handed to him by a new Espada. As I predicted earlier, Chad is not kubo’s favorite character but this was a very mean thing to do to Chad. Poor guy didn’t even have time to celebrate his first victory.

First lets’ start with Chad’s abilities. From the start I didn’t think Gantiban wasn’t much of an opponent for Chad. Gantiban attacked him full force but Chad just used one hand to stop him, and then counter attack so powerful it even broke the wall next to him!

Talking about his abilities, it seems his La muerte (attack of the devil) is very similar to a cero. Well it may not be a perfect comparison; however, do you remember when ichigo was fighting his hollow inside of him? His other hollow was fighting Vizards using his real body and he was about to use his cero when Ichigo finally came out.






But what’s more interesting is what happens after the fight. Unlike that loser, ishida (see [1]), and like ichigo he fought like a man; a true knight. After he defeated his opponent, when he saw him injured on the ground this is what he did:



How touching! (in your face ishida)




now before we get to this new Espada, let’s take a look at Ulquiorra (I believe he is a vasto lorde but that’s only me)
As we know Ulquiorra is espada number one. The main villain; Byakuya of Hueco Mundo with super-awesome-kick-ass powers which we haven’t seen yet! My point is that he is powerful; you don’t mess around with him. Remember when Grimmjow was about to release his Zanpakuto? He arrived and just put his hand on grimmjow’s sword and the poor guy didn’t say a word although he was pissed as hell!
Now the first time we see this Noitora guy, here is how he talks to Ulquiorra:






Early Conclusion:
He is either too confident, crazy or has incredible amount of power and doesn’t give a damn about his opponent. Either case Chad is in deep trouble.


Noitora
What is it with this guy? To be honest, he looks like as drug addict. Why the hell is he so slim? Reminds me of those anorexia-loving models in London fashion show! ewwwww…



This druggy also has an eye patch. Very similar to Zaraki in my opinion. Is he holding back against Chad? Oh man, with his abilities sealed, chad couldn’t do anything now imagine his full power. Scray…




Former Espada

There is an interesting point regarding former Espadas. They are not happy with what’s happening in H.M. well, I wouldn’t be either if, not long a go, I was at the very top and now I’m not in the circle of power anymore. What we saw at the end of ichigo’s fight was a sacrifice by an espada as an appreciation for not killing him. But perhaps it's little more complicated than that. Maybe they don’t like Aizen period! They went against his orders; they knew they’ll die if they do so.
This seems very interesting if we look at the last page of this chapter.


some people need to learn manners. How Rude!






Now having that in mind, Can the blood be Gantiban’s? If I’m proved to be right, then former espadas may all be thinking the same and that’s definitely good news for ichigo and his friends.


[1]
Based on an incredibly accurate survey, Ishida is still “the most hated character” in Bleach. This survey was done by nobody else but me since I could not find anybody more reliable and trustworthy. The results of this survey are very accurate and all the small details were considered. He got most of the votes and in the end, to make sure he will stay on top, I added two dozen to his votes. Manually adjusting the results, is justified when dealing with Evil characters. As it can be seen, I was merciful even toward the most ruthless, the most annoying and the most hated characters in the universe. May he die in agony.



EXTRA…EXTRA!

Since I was late for this review I decide to do something extra. As we all know bleach anime has gone back to the Manga storyline. Does that mean we are all happy and are going to celebrate? @#$% No! You ask why? Because the quality of the animation is so great most of us almost die of laughter at the beginning of the show. I’m utterly speechless by the beauty hidden in their drawings! Take a look:

Fantastic animation, is this suppose to be Orihime?!







This one is my favorite, do you know what the original looked like?



Surprised? Me too!

what with their faces? it's tringle. i can draw better




This is Ichigo, I recognized him from his “sword”


Shinji at it’s best:

Bottom line, read the manga, forget the anime! (and I was merciful enough not to show those bount dolls)





Rating: 4.5, I wanted to give this chapter a 4 but because there is a new Espada, I added 0.5 point.

Credit: M7 as usual for their super awesome scans, www.Bleach7.com and www.randomc.animeblogger.net/ for their Bleach anime pictures. And finally www.animepaper.com for their amazing wallpapers

We have one day until the new chapter comes out! Let me know what you guys think.
