First and foremost, I want to dedicate this paricular 10 Comments column to my proofer and good friend, AkiDot. She really stepped up to the plate for me the last few weeks when I was out with a small fracture in my wrist, and for that:

THANK YOU! :p

Also, thanks in large part to resident admin Gold Knight here on MH for starting this weekly tradition; it's a great idea to kill time now that more and more Bleach translators are popping up here. Though, there was only one script this week, hopefully the last rush of people showing up can get sustained so I can just devote myself to this weekly column for Bleach here on MH. And last, but definitely not least, kudos for this week's images courtesy of the folk buzzing away at the M7 hive.

"I swear, I'm not a Hanatarou clone!"

1. Neru's Compulsions
Okay, we've pretty much established that the little girl's got some spunk and is easily the most loveable of the purely comedic relief characters (Hanatarou, Keigo). Though, you guys have to admit that naivety is going to have to come back and bite her and her brothers in the butt somehow to help round out their flat characters a bit. Hanatarou periodically overcame his cowardice and Keigo... err, nevermind. The point is, if Neru is an Arrancar (as she appears) she should at least be more latently powerful than her adopted siblings => SO DO SOMETHING!


Something about leaving breadcrumbs...?

2. The Great Desert Bros. Strike Back!
Well, while I don't expect much from Neru's siblings, I'm surprised that Kubo took precious panel space to break them up. If each one strikes out on their own (or at least preserve Neru being all alone), how will their brand of humor persevere? Still, it won't matter much in the short-term... (see #10)


The Arrancar obviously don't offer dental benefits...

3. When Eyepatches Don't Work
It's been a while since I've seen a thoroughly "ugly" (yet functional) character design from Kubo-sensei. Noitora's doesn't have that monstrous feel as he does that sleazy rat air about him. While not as imposingly devious as say, Mayuri, there's something about Noitora (personality aside) that just seems to click with me, especially that goofy headwear of his. Though, he needs to lose that eyepatch; it looks more like he slapped some tighty-whiteys on his face than a machismo statement.


Noitora: OMG did u liek t3h bewbz?

4. Sexual Harrassment! Part 1!
So, in the beginning we had Orihime's massive girth, then we moved on to being graced by Matsumoto's... two "friends." (Hell, who can possibly forget Kubo's summer spread with all the girls on the beach @__@?) The ecchi was fine and all for a shounen manga, but then appeared our short-lived friend and everyone's favorite blatant rapist Arrancar, Luppi. Is Noitora gonna be the new lecher mascot for the Arrancar? With a face for radio, I hope not!


Ulquiorra: I shall render you impotent with my robotic rhetoric.

5. THE CAGE
Seriously, it sounds like a UFC event or something... Anyway, props to Ulquiorra for managing to ensnare... wait a tick, it's Orihime, nevermind. Sorry to all you Ori-fans out there, but you've got to admit that even though she's got a bright sun in that head of hers, the forecast is perpetual overcast. Out of all the female characters in BLEACH, she's bound to be the one on the chopping block given the way her personality was designed (ah well, at least OriXIchi fans got a few tasty scenes a few chapters back). But wait... will I actually ever defend Orihime for once!? See part #9 for more!


Forget Kyouka Suigetsu, Aizen's sex beams > ALL

6. Sexual Harrassment Discrimination! Part 2!
So... all (most?) Arrancar servants seen thus far are female, eh? Well, I guess it'd be more forgivable if Rori (Menori?) didn't look like an Arrancar-ized version of Isane.


The world's most valuable breath mint.

7. Hougyoku: The Freshmaker
Gotta admit that if they don't exist already, home ergonomic design companies are going to be jumping all over that nifty cylindrical stacking shelves thingy. Anyway, I just had to point this panel out again simply because I can't get over just how small such an infinitely powerful thing can be.


So Orihime's power is a godly Freudian defense mechanism!?

8. Silly Aizen, you talk in RIDDLES.
Okay, so we've confirmed here and now that Aizen really needs the aspect of Orihime's powers that can reverse entire events and restore an entity to a previous point in its existence. But... WHY?


With my ability... I'll prove Djudge wrong--!!

9. CANON: Orihime sweats when she thinks!
Haha, okay okay, I'll lay off the Orihime hate for a while because she's seriously impressed me here in this chapter with this revelation here. The implications of this are enormous of course, but how will she able to pull it off with Aizen doting on everyone's favorite artifact every waking moment (hell, does he even sleep anyway?), not to mention the Espada lurking about?


"Hey Ichigo, want to see my Pokeymanz?"

10. It's the FOOT! Turtle power!
Ah yes, the return of the ever-popular "mystery" foot device that threw many of us for a loop back in the epic Soul Society arc. Betting early? 1:2 for Grimmjow, 1:4 for a new Arrancar, 1:10 for a random Espada member, 1:100 for a random Shinigami, 1:1000 for Neru. Personally, I hope there's some Jaggerjack in the near future...

11. The Bottom Line: 2.5/5
This was just an okay chapter, we got introduced to a new Bleach perv in Noitora and we found out that Aizen pretty much runs Las Noches like Lexcorp. Orihime's resolution to be useful used up a lot of ink over at Shueisha's presses (yay for black introspective backgrounds!) and lastly the stalker feet make a triumphant return! Please switch to a non-Shinigami perspective (Ishida or Sado) next week, okay Kubo-sensei?
