Man he was really the spookiest.

Speaking of Momo, she was convinced that Captain Aizen must have had good reasons for what he was doing, right?

>>118207908

Yes. Momo is the only one who really knows Aizen's intentions.

The foreshadowing is so obvious.
>>
>>118207908
She got over it after hanging out with Shinji. There's a side story and everything about them. Momo's cute, she could of got a bankai.

Nah not yet. He's only been killed once. Still got at least 10 chapters of killing the unkillable after getting unkilled by the perfect killer.
>>
>>118208054
But she still referred to Aizen as "Captain" Aizen the last time we heard her speak of him.
>>
>>118208057
She's actually pretty powerful with Kido and her Zanpakuto is strong. She nuked Harribel's Fraccion and they had to use Ressurreccion to beat her.
>>
For how long will Kubo continue to troll us?

>>118208057
The whole vice captain and captain thing is weird, because almost all vice captains and captains have been stated to be of a power level above what is appropriate, which makes the ones of normal power seem like chumps

This chapter straight up irritated me.

I knew monk was going to get beat, barring some kind of awesome twist that was the only option. I knew Jubi was going to pull through, of course he's not going down that easy.

I was just pissed off by the whole "nah, I'm just immune to your powers" thing, especially after up until now he's been getting his ass beat.

Have him pull of a neat trick or technique and then say some shit like "That was close, without BLITZKRIEG GERMANSOUNDINGWURD I might have died there"

But no, we just get my little cousin's "nuh uh, I had a forcefield the whole time and your guy's lasers cant break them" excuse

Kubo has created the ultimate villain: One who can't be harmed by people who explain the full extent of their powers to him.

In Bleach he is unstoppable.

>>118208916
The MS translation suggests something different than the Panda one, though.
>>
Why doesn't they just nuke Ywach?
>>
Yhwach's power is to see/understand something from any given perspective.

Meaning that he didn't forget his name because fat monk still knew it, and he could see his own name from his perspective.

Stop using that word for things it doesn't mean. It was a dumb power but it was by no means an asspull, most of us saw this coming over a month ago.

You know, Aizen didn't actually tell anyone about his power until he was sure that he got everyone and owned the plot device.
He should have never told, but hey, at least not too bad.
>>
>>118209793
No it really wasn't.
>>
>>118209064
The issue isn't him forgetting his name, that's just a byproduct of Ichibei's power. The concept of the name itself has been taken away.

Yhwach just has the ability to restore it.
>>
>>118209214
I'm not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. Hell, I'm not even talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara. I'm not talking Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara. I'm talking about Sage of Six Paths Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan doujutsus (with the rikodou abilities and being capable of both Amateratsu and Tsukuyomi genjutsu), equipped with his Gunbai, a perfect Susano'o, control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju's DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu, a third eye Rinnegan capable of casting Infinite Tsukuyomi, and five Limbo shadows which protect him from all physical harm.

Hmm I thought of something. If the Monk's power is to name someone anything he wants and in effect change their characteristics wouldn't he be able to power someone up to make them invincible, godlike etc.? For example, what if he just called someone 'God' or 'Undefeatable' or 'Winner'. In that sense, he could power up Ichigo or someone else to be able to win any fight, even against Yhwach...

Because chances are his power doesn't work that way and we take the explanation given too literally.
When he named Yhwach "black ant" he didn't literally mean he was an ant strength-wise. One ant wouldn't survive the 2 attacks that Yhwach survived. By naming him ant he probably meant that he's like an ant, fragile, weak (in comparison to a superior being), powerless.
Chances are too that he can't give powers beyonds his own powers, like naming someone God.
>>
>>118208916
So Gin is the only one who could beat him?
>>
>>118211055

>>
>>118211098

Considering it could defeat Hogyoku Aizen, it's a fairly accurate name.
>>
>>118208916
He doesn't need a explanation. He just need to "understand" the power.
>>
>>118211178
>Considering it could defeat Hogyoku Aizen
Except not really. It could probably kill anyone but Hougyoku Aizen, considering the hougyoku granted him immortality.

>>118211268

But really. It could harm him and kill him. The Hogyoku just insures he gets revived and gets back stronger.

That he could harm the current form was already a testimony to the brokenness of it's power.

That's not what 'defeat' means. Gin's bankai is clutch but it's no Mugetsu. Gin killed him once, and got killed immediately afterwards. Mugetsu killed him so hard that it forced Aizen to regress to a pre-trancendant state, upon which Kisuke's bindings were activated and Aizen was defeated.

Actually it is. Mugetsu did the same thing and he was about to regenerate and evolve further.

Sounds about Kubo.
>>118208817
Man, we don't even know how Ywach got out of it...I don't think its just an immunity thing
>>
>>118208146

Yeah, It's a bit frustrating, but at least not Orihime levels of frustrating. Hinamori was technically brainwashed by him, after all, so Aizen is still a touchy topic for her.

In a way, she actually understands Aizen, but him discarding her and attempting to kill her broke her. Even so, she seems to hold the good things she was taught from him and apply it to her work.

Shinji and Lisa's friendship and influence did wonders to her and she seems to be recovering nicely.
>>
>>118211039
I sometime worry that translation ruins the metaphors and make us think of some things to literal, this chapter was (unfortunately) as simple as :

Raepmonk: I'm going to rename you ant to represent the fact im stronger than you

YW: Too bad im actually omnipotent so you can't beat me.

I fail to see how his 'understanding' held any relevance to the fight, I think the whole he can understand anything part was just his right hand man brown nosing.
>>
>>118211868
It's just frustrating to see how unable she is to cope when Rangiku still functions normally. By all means, Gin had a bigger impact on her life than Aizen did on Momo.

rangiku's an adult it's obvious she's just more mature
>>
>>118208057
Through guts and hard work.

She's actually a very competent shinigami, good with kido and according to Shinji, strict with rules. Unfortunately, we mostly saw her doing shit with her during a state of mental disturbance, recklessness and later lack of resolve.

She seems to be doing better now, though her status is currently unknown considering all the shit that happened.
>>
>>118212048

yeah almost entirely disintegrating is actually not big of a deal compared to only going down a notch.

Fuck, I wanted his A to be "The Ant" and him to go rampaging around while being a huge ass ant, his new name having made him even stronger.

Not since the cicada guy got shanked out of nowhere was I this disappointed in Bleach.

It does. In the last thread some guy kept showing all of us why some names make WAY more sense in Japanese than in tranlations, like The Wind for instance.

>>
>>118212149
The key word here is "defeated" and is the word you used specifically. Kamishini no yari did not defeat Aizen, Mugetsu did. They're on completely different levels of power, as proven in the text. Did you forget to do your homework?

I caught up on Bleach yesterday after stopping in late August. Man Bleach is at its best when its not focusing on the Big Bad. Everything just gets so fucking ridiculous.

>>118207789
You think you are hot shit, don't you; spouting the same shit every fucking thread about how Aizen is going to rebirth the entirety of the spirit world with Ichigo as his weapon in some sort of twisted plot turn that makes no fucking sense.

Well guess what: you're wrong. Such a finishing to the entire manga would be so stupid, but fans such as yourself would just lap it up; wouldn't they? God you're so stupid. I'm just going to go to school tomorrow and know that you're still here, posting your hot fucking turd of an opinion on this loser anime and manga board, while I'm out enjoying life - proving you wrong.

I hope you enjoy being single forever, you loser; continue writing your pathetic monologues in your cum crusted underpants and fast-food covered floor.

>Yhwach isn't unstoppable.
He isn't.

Ichigo will fight against him with his newly acquired powers that no one has fully seen.
Or Kyoraku will. Goes bankai and it is a convoluted as fuck child's play with endless rules.
>>
>>118212301
I wonder if Kubo will attempt to explain Yhwach or if he'll just roll with the fact that he basically just wrote in a character who's power parodies one of the biggest cliches in Bleach.

I still like Monk because even if he is OP, he's not unbeatable, and for what position he holds it's believable that he can literally give and take names. Yhwach's letter was obvious as hell but I feel Kubo is going somewhere with it so I'm letting it slide.

Basically, what I'm saying is that I'm not as bored as I was during Deicide, where Aizen went from master troll to complete stock BBEG in a matter of two chapters.

It's literally straight from Urahara's mouth; his bakudo only took effect because he was so drastically weakened from Mugetsu.

>>118212588
Not him but yeah, people like Ichigo and maybe Aizen are the perfect counter to Yhwach.

They have weird powers (Aizen thanks to hogyuku and Ichigo due to Quincy/Shinigami/Hollow/Human genes) that are hard to properly understand and know the limits of.

I wonder now if Ichigo will have some unique quincy power kinda like the other Sternritter,? except obviously without the schrift thing, kinda like how Royd and Lloyd still had that copy and mimicing power even before meeting Yhwach.

I actually like the Monk. Maybe a little too much talking but this is Bleach after. In the end I liked the visuals of his power. The writing and the giant foot and hands were cool to watch but of course I knew he had to lose.

I wish this arc was more like the SS arc where Ichigo had a few rivals who weren't necessarily the strongest that he had to fight instead of the Aizen arc where we knew Aizen was going to waste a bunch of people until Ichigo showed up.
>>
I get the awful feeling we're going to jump back to the other royal guard at the end of this and find that they're all facedown on the ground and the sternritter elite are cleaning up when Ichigo & co. finally get there.

I think Yhwach made Ishida fodder for him, like all the other Sternritter.

So when we think Yhwach is finally, like actually dead, he's going to snuff Ishida and make a comeback.

The way you said it, it seemed as if you were implying that Urahara "rekt" Opie again AFTER Opie got back up.

And if Opie got back up, it wasn't a fucking oneshot, was it?

That actually happened, in one early bonus chapter where they're academy students Kira, Renji and Hinamori try to help Hisagi, who's an upperclassman fending off hollows. They're all saved by Aizen and Gin, who's Aizen's lieutenant at the time. That's when Hinamori at least start admiring Aizen.

I've been sitting on this prediction waiting for it to play out for over a year now, and I've even seen other people here on /a/ come to similar if not the same conclusion as me: Uryuu's plan to backstab Yhwach already failed when he drank Yhwach's blood. He's now basically being pressganged into staying a villain. That much is clear and obvious, but what's only slightly less clear (but still pretty fucking clear) is that Kubo's trying to use this to distract from the fact that Hashwalth is going to be the one to stab Yhwach in the back. When exposing Uryuu's unfaithfulness/uselessness to Yhwach doesn't dissuade him from keeping Uryuu as his heir, Hashwalth will put into play the final stages of some long standing play to steal Yhwach/Uryuu's powers for himself. Then Uryuu gets to sit back and be the damsel in distress, Yhwach offs Hashwalth, and Ichigo finishes off Yhwach.

>>118214312
He got defeated with a single attack. That's getting oneshot, isn't it?
Maybe I didn't word it properly, that would be entirely my fault.

I thought that the word oneshooting was fitting because he used a single attack. But now that you point that out I'm not sure if oneshooting implies killing someone or can be used when defeating someone.

Now your opponent is as strong as an Ant, extra easy to kill. But there is no point because you could kill a human just as easily with those powers.

It's not an ability in the same vein as the letters bestowed to the Sternritter were; Toofsy made it clear that it's part of his very existence- basically, no matter how powerful Monk's ability was it wouldn't have any effect.

However, I don't think this necessarily makes Yhwach invincible; however it does establish that he is 'godlike' in a sense, or has an aspect of a god, and thus further establishing a connection to the Reio.

You're missing the point of what a Bankai is, and what it says about Ichibei and his role as 'the one who bears the true name'.

It's one thing to erase a name, and reduce everything to a blank slate. But to then rename it- recreate anything with a single word? That's real power.

And let's not forget that Ichibei claims to have given Soul Society, and everything in it, it's name. He essentially made the 'Soul Society' that exists in the present.

And lets not forget where the Vandenreich came from: the shadow of Soul Society, the 'black'.

In all honesty, he probably wasn't strong enough at the time to beat Yama, even though Yama also wasn't strong enough to truly kill him either (Mayuri states that Yama had failed to do this in the past- his Almighty was likely the reason for this). But his bloodline spread and greatly magnified his power through various Auchwalen- death made him stronger, strong enough to change the fate of the world...

'Soul King' isn't a name. It's not something you can just become- at least not while the current Soul King exists. Consider Aizen and Kisuke's conversation at the end of Deicide- it's clearly a complex issue.
>>
>>118216306
Because he never had real shinigami powers before, those were quincy powers imitating shinigami powers awakened by Rukia giving him her power which caused the hollow powers to awaken despite being held back by his REAL shinigami powers (inherited from his dad), and normally hollow and shinigami powers don't mix but Ichigo is a special case so once one of his powers woke up they all started getting riled up, except for his shinigami powers which were still being suppressed because Yhwch as Zangetsu was boggarting his spiritual power until very recently.

Ichigo (xbox hueg hybrid reiatsu)
Kenpachi (incredibly high reiatsu)

>>118216729

The worst offense amongst many that Kubo has committed during this final arc is the fact that he wrote out all the central characters.

Ichigo has been going back and forth between places indefinitely. Every time he arrives somewhere, it turns out to be anticlimactic as fuck and then he's shuffled off to another location to build suspense for something that never happens.

Ishida is always in the background, most of the time completely invisible. Even when we know for a fact that he's present (like in the Royal Palace with Toofsy right now), Kubo never draws him or makes any mention of him whatsoever.

Not that it's anything new, but Orihime and Chad as well have been given the same treatment as Ichigo this arc. Either stranded in HM, or being shuttled around.

You'd think with all these characters being given the sidebar, Kubo would take the opportunity to delve into other lesser characters that we're interested in. But nope, just these terrible Quincy. And until just recently, they just kept popping up.

Rukia's the best character in Bleach, period. She's literally perfect in every way. 80% of the reason I read Bleach is for her.

But yeah that guy is wrong to say Bleach is all cowtits, there are other flat beauties as well. Soifong, Yachiru, Karin, Yuzu, Ururu, and that fullbring tsundere whose name I can't remember, and also I think Hiyori was another pettanko.

This guy is without a shadow of doubt God almighty. To think that Ichigo is related to this monster and not just him, but equally fucked up monsters on his father's side of the family.

Fodder doesn't really count; it was made clear from the beginning that the Sternritter weren't going to be as well fleshed out as the Espada. But then again it's hard for the author to dislike characters that he has put so much work into making. And the focus has been placed on Ichigo where it counts- like the flashback arc and training with the RG. Yeah it's bullshit he hasn't had a legit fight in ages, but it's clearly building to that.

I think its gotten worse over time. With the HM at least there was some fighting. Grimmjow and Ichigo were knocking each other around and Nnoitra and Kenpachi were swinging at each other quite a bit.

I guess what I'm mainly getting at is that this is all rising action. It's building suspense and anticipation for these characters that we've been following the entire series. And even though they've been given the sidebar for this arc, readers will still be interested in seeing what role they will play when the plot finally pans out - EVEN IF there was no foreshadowing in this arc that they will be important. And there HAS BEEN quite a bit, especially in regards to Ishida and Ichigo (duh).

So we're expecting some pretty big reveals, or at least some emotional scenes. And I just don't think Kubo can ever hope to deliver on it since he's been building it up for so terribly long.

At least wait until we get there before you make such a negative assumption. Stories need rising action, and at least we're not stuck in Hueco Mundo watching mid-bosses talk each other to death. Yhwach is at the Soul King's door. We're reaching the climax.

Rukia, Chad and Orihime are basically finished with their development, and have been for some time. The current arc is Ishida's 'rescue arc', and has established his conflict (hate the Shinigami vs. his bonds with his friends vs. Yhwach is a fucking monster) and will likely resolve once his friends arrive. Perhaps he knows the secret to defeating Yhwach (as they bear the same letter)?

Rukia is extremely feminine. She has the soft jaw and round facial structure common to young girls, a bust and hip line that although modest do show clearly in the right clothing. She also has pert lips, long eyelashes, and slender fingers. The parts of her I find particularly attractive are her short stature (a mere 144 cm) and her moderate, B-range bust and perfectly proportioned hips.

In the big heavy shihakusho that she normally wears her figure is almost totally hidden, but in the school uniform, casual wear, or that white getup she wore while imprisoned her slight curves are more visible.

Essentially she has a subtle feminine beauty as opposed to somebody like Rangiku where her tits are falling out of her shihakusho.

Her eyes are one of her best features. That lovely purple hue and soft parallelogram shape. And big eyes are instinctively attractive for people, they make a character seem more trustworthy and innocent. Narrow eyes are perceived as less trustworthy and make a character seem cunning or sinister. Which works for Soifong and gives her some gap moe when she gushes over Yoruichi.

Rukia also used to have a more austere appearance, she kept her eyes half-lidded and had this schooled expression on her face similar to what Byakuya has. Only she's far less adept at keeping that composure, since she loses it almost immediately after Ichigo gives her a boot to the butt.

it's nothing so complex. you just have to remember sometimes that /a/'s not as dense with neckbeards as we all like to think it is, the basement dweller population is pretty thoroughly watered down with 15 year olds. They're kids still being peer pressured into being deluded into thinking they know anything about their sexuality.

I really hate this series sometimes.

It's not even logical, or cool.

Oh, this monk's super cool power, which follows specific rules got completely defeated because "I'm Almighty, and I win."

I really hate manga and anime that have shit like that. "I SIMPLY WIN BECAUSE I DO, BECAUSE I AM AWESOME."

Fucking shit.I prefer series with rules and regulations and ways to break and counter them specifically.

This seems like the writer went "Oh, the baddies wins because he's the baddie."

It's been like this for a long time. No one but Ichigo could harm Aizen just because.

>>118219658
Ichigo's problem is that he lacks personal ambitions. He doesn't want to do anything, he just responds to external conflict. He'll help people who need help because he's a good guy, he's got an affable personality, but that's part of the problem. He's too easygoing and doesn't really want anything for himself. Additional problems are that he doesn't have very serious flaws. He's pretty intelligent (he scores above average in school, picks up new information quickly), very strong and a skilled brawler, has a well-earned reputation for being a notorious delinquent but suffers not real social setbacks because of this (see for comparison: Yusuke Urameshi, who was often blamed for things he didn't do and shat on by his teachers), and has a weird but overall positive relationship with his father, and his sisters adore him, seems fairly popular with the ladies... basically his only two flaws such as they are, are being stubbornly chivalrous in battle (which isn't even treated as a bad thing in Bleach really) and recklessly coming to somebody's aid without thinking about consequences (which again, not much of a flaw in a battle shounen).

Now, take Luffy. I actually like Luffy. I didn't like him the first time I read One Piece, but he grew on me. He's got goals, he's got flaws, and more than anything he has a strong, vivacious personality that allows him to take over almost any scene he's in. Luffy lives like a protagonist, Ichigo feels like he was designated it as a job.

i know this is a shit opinion but that was the reason I like ichigo, he's a main character against his will and I thought that was a really original character type.

nice dubs btw
>>
>>118220752
I can forgive it because Yhwach is literally based on the Abrahamic god. His name, his back story, the motifs that go along with his powers, everything.

Kubo is mainly using this fight to establish that Juha is really fucking strong, and even against a ridiculous powerful and haxed opponent like Ichibei, he can still come out on top.
>>
>>118220966
That's...a pretty good explanation actually.

I haven't read or watched Naruto or One Piece in years but at least Naruto had a goal(become Hokage, I wonder if he achieved that) and Luffy was trying to become the king of the pirates and find One Piece or some shit. That's something to work for in between fights. Ichigo just depresses me. What the fuck does he want? Just drag his feet through life until SS needs him again? He might as well move there full time.

Well Kyoraku hints that he won't be leaving this time, and then there is this scene.

>>118221108
Original != good. It seems interesting at first but its never really explored, Ichigo just silently accepts it and agrees to do whatever is needed. We never see him second guess himself or think about what he might want, he just fights for his nakama and that's it.

>>118221173
You mean Hinata? Good for him, Sakura a shit. I hope Sasuke died and Sakura was left all alone.
>>
>>118220922
People would complain then too. The reason why Kubo goes out of his way to explain powers is that when he doesn't people bitch and moan about it. If everyone used generic spells, footwork and swordplay all the time it would've gotten stale years ago.
Fans are always begging for releases, explanations and reveals. At least Kubo delivers.

>>118221255
Sasuke and Sakura had a kid, but Sasuke left the village, so worst girl got fucked anyway.
>>
>>118220430
It really was though. No 'I'm behind you', no asspulls, even the one 'Bankai' did nothing of any real note; it was a fight to the death, with real meaning for both parties involved. It was an unexpected development and fit well into it's respective arc. And the best part? Someone actually dies at the end.

I get where you guys are coming from, but I don't think not having a goal is necessarily a flaw.

Ichigo's story is of a guy thrust into a new world and discovering more about himself in the process. I think it's exciting enough watching him deal with the events around and grow as a character.

But does it only have to be one or the other? Why can't we have a little bit of both? And who says I would get bored with spells, footwork, and sword fighting? If you throw in a few special powers and some creativity that can go a very long way.

I was going to say something like "Well at least most of the powers are interesting", but just today a guy with some neat powers lost to "over 9000" and as simple as most abilities are in, say, Dragon Ball Z, I sure enjoyed Battle of Gods more than I have this arc.

>>118221137
Luffy is a strong protagonist, but it's very easy to get rubbed the wrong way by him at the start. I hated him for a long time and he was actually one of the biggest impediments to my getting into One Piece. I can't really say what made me start liking him, but I can say what appeals about him to me now.

First off is that Luffy has an extremely charming combination of naivete and honesty. He's practically incapable of lying and very rarely is able to read the mood, so he constantly says tactless things. It makes him a natural boke that forces everybody around him to play the tsukkomi, even other boke characters.

I also like the fact that Luffy isn't generically friendly to everybody he meets. He's affable even to his enemies, but he despises weakness and doesn't sugarcoat it, he'll straight up tell a person "I don't like you because you're a crybaby." He's said this to a few character who later went on to become his friends after nutting up a bit.

I also like how he is able to make up his mind about something instantly, and then sticks to it. He asked almost every member of his crew to join him within minutes of meeting them, and then spent the rest of their arc convincing them to join. The guy's got conviction, I admire that.

Luffy does share a few traits with Ichigo by dint of being a battle shounen protagnoist, which I also like: reckless bravery, protective of his friends, strength from resolve, and so on.

Ichigo has realistic ambitions and goals, in that respect he's a much more believable character.
Luffy and Naruto are made the way they are to appeal to younger user base, who most likely have similar dreams, like wanting to become firemen, or astronauts etc. It's much easier for a kid to relate to someone like that.

At present Ichigo reminds me of your average young adult. Not knowing his place in life, aimlessly in pursuit of higher education and knowledge, impressionable. His motivations behind are grounded in a childhood trauma and all he really does want is to save whoever he can, whoever they are. He's like the protagonist of a novel and the reason why people find him stale is because he's supposed to be a shounen MC.

so what we can establish is that YH has two types of powers.

The first being his quincy powers, which are the same as what the other vandenreich quincies have (but more advanced)

and secondly, his innate ability to give and re-absorb pieces of his soul, and inscribe schrift (a more advanced version of his soul sharing ability) onto his followers. this ability is exclusive to him

what im curious to know is whether or not A "The Almighty" was a power that YH simply gave to himself through schrift inscription, or whether it was an ability he was born with that he improved using the schrift method (not unlike how a shinigami "improves" their innate power through the creation of zanpakuto)

also, my crack theory for the week: YH foresaw all this when he was last sleeping, when he last had his eyes closed

Pretty much. A lot fot he other characters are more interesting. That;s pretty much par the course for shounen battle series but its particularly bad with Bleach.

>>118221636
But its not really explored much. We get hints of it but not nearly enough.

We did get some of it with the Fullbringer arc and it made that arc interesting. I actually liked that one because it felt a lot like the Ghostbusters arc in the beginning and it seemed like Chad and Orihime were going to get more focus but the ending seemed rushed and the Shinigami shoehorned in.
>>
>>118221650

He looked younger there for the same reason that Shirosaki there looked like his old full-hollow self.

Ichigo was seeing them as they truly were at the time the power became "his". That was how Ywach looked when Masaki's family became quincy's through a pact with Ywach, and that was how Shirosaki looked back when he was "white" before he merged with Masaki.

It was just how they looked when they were first introduced into his fucked up genetics.

>>
>>118221636
I thought that post my draw you or lab member out.

And I would say that "believability" is not a useful metric by which to evaluate a character in a battle shounen manga. Bleach is not a believable story, the setting is not a believable setting, the events are not the subtle ennui of suburban Japanese youth struggling to find identity in the adult world.

It's about ghost samurai fighting evil ghosts and nazi spirit wizards and half monster-half samurais and so on. Yes, characters have some depth to them, Ichigo does resemble more of a typical teenager. I think that's the angle Kubo was going for. I didn't thoughtlessly remark that Ichigo was designated a protagonist as a job, he literally takes on the "job" of substitute shinigami in chapter 1, essentially taking up a protagonist role.

And this isn't uncommon in anime, it's actually a very common way to start an urban fantasy light novel.
>average Japanese teen
>girl falls out of the sky/appears before him
>sudden happenings
>awaken new power
Thing is, the main complain with that formula is often about how generic the MC is. A lot of harems also have typical nice guy protagonists that are more similar to Ichigo than different, and people call them generic as well. Because they lack strong defining traits that make them seem like their own person.

That's the main criticism I have for Ichigo lacking ambitions. Ambition is one of the main way s a shounen protag defines himself, but anything will do, really.

>>118221800
I'd disagree. There are some details I think Kubo did better back then but overall his style grew more refined and confident. He was a lot rougher and sketchier back then, which makes the art seem hesitant and unsure. Characters felt more jagged and stiff.

Comparing it to the most recent chapter, it seems almost amateurish. But in a way that showed a real amount of effort put into it to make it seem good, which I like.

Exactly, Ichigo's character is not exaggerated enough in a medium and a world that is exaggerated by design. What makes him interesting are his interactions and personal thoughts, but in a fighting manga those are drowned out. The HM arc lived on the idea that Ichigo was on a downward spiral towards insanity, or at least that it would change him permanently (and it did).
Ichigo's development ended with "The Blade is Me". We shouldn't expect him to do much from here on out. Just enjoy his new bankai and new forms. If he really does have the power of soul distribution then things are going to get a bit more interesting before the ending. That's all there is to say about him now.

Are you at high risk of fucking every woman you see? Like, should we put every straight male behind bars because they might rape women at any moment? No, because you have self control and probably also have empathy and wouldn't attack people. For some reason you assume pedos have neither of these qualities.

A lolicon is not a high risk pedophile. Hell, most actual pedophiles aren't high risk pedophiles. The ones who are a danger to themselves and others are the ones who seek to profit from the exploitation of real children. Pedophilia was made illegal due to the bodily harm sexual intercourse wrought on someone who was not sexually mature.

Pedophile =/= normal balanced hetero/homo. They are deviants and fantasise about abuse by default. Whereas normal people don't exclusively masturbate to rape.

The problem isn't so much how low key Ichigo's personal development is, it's how divorced it is from his outer development, as in his powers. This thing about saving people and getting stronger to protect them is something that's existed since chapter 1, and since chapter 1 it's something forced on him by circumstance. He saw his little sister in the clutches of a monster, saw a stranger sacrifice herself to save him, was given an opportunity do right by the stranger and save his family, and took it.

And his actions have remained consistent to that train of thought for pretty much the entire manga. He kept his schoolyard brawler sensibilities even when fighting against inhuman monsters (I don't want to win this way!) and it showed signs of rattling him, and initially he did fight against his hollow half, but ultimately this didn't pan out in any big way in terms of character development.

Ichigo, even after embracing his hollow and becoming Vizard, didn't have any corresponding change in his personality or beliefs, he remained more or less the same. And maybe that makes him "steadfast" but he doesn't really have anything to be steadfast to. He never really stood anything except "gotta protect my friends/family".

Basically there's no competing desires within Ichigo. He's pure in the sense that he's singularly devoted to this. For a brief moment it looked like the hollow-side was going to make him into somebody like Kenpachi, but alas, it was quashed.

Neither do I, as I mentioned earlier I'm not exclusively pedo-sexual. Which is the case for many people attracted to children. I can and do regularly get off to teens and adults. My spectrum of acceptable ages is just skewed younger than the average person's. Anyone over 30 is outside my strikezone, and generally speaking I don't find toddlers/babies attractive.

Also, categorizing all child-adult sex as abuse is at best willful ignorance, at worst willful disinfo.
