Did anyone else get the feeling that Tatsuki was supposed to develop powers (Like Inoue or Sado), but then the idea was abandoned? Can anyone confirm or deny this?
they really did seem like they where setting her up to join the team. Spiritual awareness, Ichigo's fight buddy, a protective friend.
And then we got orifuckinghime and all my desire to watch this shit went right out the window
to strenghten my case i would like to add that Tatsuki strikes me as a total ninja fighting type like Yoruichi , Keigo as a fighter and the other guy as the "Byakuya leader" type
Id like her more as a straight up brawler
I mean she fucking BIT a goddamn hallow
Orihime was a pretty great character back then. Problem was, she was stuck in a shitty "damsel in distress" role during Hueco Mundo arc, which got stretched out and prolonged to such obscene levels that she stayed useless for entirely too long. Didn't help that Kubo messed up and didn't know how to write her during the arc, nor did he take Tatsuki with the rescue force, which would have been a plot opportunity served on a silver platter to let her be a member of the core group again and let her catch up in the powerlevel bonanza.
tl;dr Kubo can't plan for shit and is prone to some bad story decisions, thanks to lack of proper planning, that ended up haunting his ass to this day.
>Orihime was a pretty great character back then.
Eh Not really. Inoffensive sure but she was still very ... orihme.
I was expecting them to work Tatsuki back into things when they got back from rescuing Rukia but halfway through that filler arc I just had enough
Then we'll have to agree to disagree. Her quirky nature was a great comic relief and she had cool moments, like the "princes protects the dragon" chapter, when she protected Tatsuki from a hollow. She had every bit as much potential as any other core character.
Kubo should have let Tatsuki be part of the adventure group as well though. That way, Orihime would have had someone else to play off and focus on, instead of just "Kurosaki-kun". As I said, Kubo fucked up majorly and his tendency to make things up on the fly didn't work out regarding her character. Tatuki's removal was a bad move on various accounts. A long term plan would have been necessary for both characters.
He did have some plans for characters like Urahara, who was supposed to be Aizen for a while. Tatsuki gives off the feeling that she was set up to become more important than she did.
Oh Kubo, that bait was such a "funny" prank.
>And it's come to this
>A sentai filler parody
Did anyone else get the feeling that the post Ghost Mexico cast is an utter disaster compared to everything before? All those dudes and chicks are solely notable for their powers, something which -though prominent in WSJ mango- was kept somewhat at bay till then.
Don Kanonji. ;_;
Yeah, even in the SS arc which introduced a bunch of characters with different powers, they still had relationships and motivations related to the other characters. Byakuya and Renji had their conflicts about Rukia, Soi Fon had a past with Yoruichi, the lieutenants and captains usually had a significant bond, and there were old classmates, officers that knew each other from their previous division, childhood friends and stuff like that which made you interested in them and the development of the plot. The only thing you wonder about with these characters is what their special power is.
Compare to the Vandereich, except for Yhwach and Toofsie everyone are just random underlings with random powers that fight because they're told to, feel like it or because they can.
Would they get along?
I mean, they're clones.
