Re: Bleach Manga 518 Discussion and 519 Predictions
Alright time to really get into what I think about this chapter.
Firstly, the reappearance of Grimmjow: Well, he was the most obvious choice and though he isn't my favorite espada by far, I approve of his return. Plus he's infinitely more interesting than Hallibel. With the way he talked to Ichigo and the clothes that we see, there's really no doubt that it's him.
The reappearance of the dead fullbringers: Fullbring arc was my least favorite arc, I can understand people not being thrilled to see characters they couldn't stand return (I hate Giriko) but the big picture matters more, if the FB arc had no more relevance in Bleach then that would mean Kubo failed hard. They *had* to be relevant again, there's no way Kubo was going to waste that amount of time on characters just to have them never be seen or heard from again. I would have preferred that it was just Tsuki and Ginjou though, Giriko should have ended up in hell.
The amount of trolling potential with Tsukishima and Aizen in the same realm...I don't even. I am very curious about how their abilities have been affected or changed since they died though.
I facepalm so hard that it never occurred to me that they would be in SS, since they were humans. xD
The Shiba clan: The mention of the "uncle" could only be Isshin I'd say, just as others have mentioned. Many people, including myself, have thought Isshin was part of the Shiba clan for awhile now so it's pretty epic to get this basically confirmed in this chapter. Ganju and Kukaku look cool as hell, I was really happy to see them again and knowing they will take part in this fight is awesome. The fact their cannon is used to transport people back to the SK realm is hilarious, should have thought of it sooner. Shiba are basically royalty then, most likely Isshin leaving SS and marrying a Quincy is the reason they are a "fallen" noble house. I believe Isshin took Masaki's name, it's also very possible his first name isn't even Isshin.
Lastly, loved the humor in this chapter as well, with Urahara and Kon, and the Shibas.
