Hello everyone!
This is my first Bleach review. This review will include the last chapter (257) and chapters 258, 256 and 255 partially. Before starting the review, I have to tell you that my English kina sucks a**! English is not my first language so please tell me if I made any weird spelling/grammar mistakes. However I’m currently in my Bankai-Writing mood so the probability of me making any mistakes is virtually zero. *Ehem, Ehem*



Chapter 255 starts with Aizen-sama once again reminding his subordinates who’s the boss in Hueco Mundo by nearly crushing the poor messenger by his monstrous spirit force.


Let’s start with something that has bothered me for some times now: what is Zaeruapollo intend to do with hollow ichigo’s reiatsu? We know that when Ichigo puts his mask on, there is no limit to how much power he can obtain so does that mean Kubo wants to make some obstacles in his ways? Is Zaeru. Capable of controlling the hollow inside Ichigo? Do hollows also have something similar inside of them?



Hollow + another hollow inside = Totally crazy!



In any case Ichigo Bankai/Hollow form kicks major ass! This was from previous chapters but it was so nice Iwanted to use it in my first review :)


Chapter 256 starts with one of the best scenes from bleach Manga, Dondo trying to stop Renji; it was hilarious! XD but the fun doesn’t stop there. These two pictures cracked me up! According to Pesshe, Ishida is even weaker than Rukia!!





Chapter 257 is one of the coolest chapters in the new arc; Ishida showing his ace. It’s been so long since I saw something especial from Ishida. After his battle with Mayuri taicho, he has been basically out power. When he showed his sword/arrow in the last page I wanted to cry! His new Jedi form was just too perfect! So star war-ish!




Chapter 258 This chapter is about just how much Ishida can kick ass. At first I thought he is planning to fight him at close range but the moment he changed the sword to arrow, I knew this fight is not going to last long! The last picture in the last page was so sad T_____T I liked this Espada; she somehow reminded me of my ex! (no, I haven’t kill her…yet!)





Criticism:

I have many friends who complain about the new arc. Their main criticisms are:

-The fights are formulaic:
“Guy is losing, random Arrancar ally shows up, random Arrancar ally helps out, guy reveals true power...”
-This arc is the same as SS. Arc


While I agree with parts of it, it doesn’t necessarily goes according to that logic. In the next chapter Ishida left that poor girl alone only to be killed by the Guards Aizen sent to investigate the fight. Ichigo on the other hand helped his opponent and as an appreciation he bought Ichigo some time. Besides, from the start of this arc I knew Ichigo and his group are going to loose big time. Their powers are great but not enough. Ichigo can’t even control his hollow that well. And finally remember, they are fighting former espadas not the new ones. If they struggle with the old ones there is no way they’ll be able to stand against those numbered ones 1-10.
In the Soul Society arc, we didn’t even know about Bankai until half way through. In this one almost everybody has shown his ace, even Ichigo is already in his Bankai form. My point is: “they can’t improve more than this while they are in Hueco Mundo.”



From the start of this review (if you can call it so) I tried to explain everything with pictures from Manga. I don’t want to/can not write long reviews since I’m not as good as “Gold Knight”! T________T

I’ll try to write a review for each chapter from now on but first I have to see if you guys like my style or not. What do you like/hate about this review? What should I do to improve it? Do you want more comments and less pictures or the way it is now is fine?
Love you all!

My Rating: for ALL the four chapters above is *5*! Well I really liked them, what can I do? However, chapter 258 is editor’s choice!


Credits: : Thanks to M7 for letting me use their HQ Edited Mangas! You’re the best :) Also, the Star Wars pic. is from www.postershop.com.
And of course “gigantor21” for patiently helping me with posting this review, you’re great too!
