Not true

Damsel in distress has been done since medieval times, you take that element away you've got typical anime plot of girl living in same room in secret, and girl with family problems.

Just summed up her entire synopsis, what a deep character Kubo.

Ichigo rescues everyone though.

He's asexual.

I don't know but I do know that I want more interaction between them. Its been like over 100 chapters. I enjoy Bleach for what it is a it one of the biggest reasons I enjoy it is sheningans between these two.

Kubo didnt.
The anime team did.
They have no chemistry in the manga. They're just acquaintances.

All the "romance" stuff was added in the anime. They also took out lots of Orihime moments which is why people dont realise shes the love interest, not Rukia.

No idea, but he's succesfully destroying one of the only things that made Bleach enjoyable. At this point Rukia is just another nakama.

It gets worse but with some amazing high points, and the earlier part of this final arc was honestly among the best chapters Kubo has ever done.
The later parts of the current arc and more decisive.

Nah, everything after Ulquiorra bites it is terrible. First the writing goes near the end of the Arrancar arc, and then the fights turn into shit, during the Fullbring arc, they were literally nothing but curbstomps, and now they're just each character showing their full power for the first time and it just comes off as contrived this late in the game.

If Kubo had put effort into the arrancar saga, and then ended it there, the manga would've been much better for it.

He couldn't though, Ichigo's mystery wasn't solved. We still needed to deal with the Isshin reveal, his relationship to Ishida's father, the origin of his vizard powers (clearly preexisting during SS) and the off hand RG and SK comments during SS.

It's clear the three power types/stages were planned, but how fucking long and drawn out the fights were came later as he just 'oh fuck writers block, lets add 26 new characters, try to keep to a theme, perfectly match them up against a few character yet to reveal their full power and have the skill sets range from basic physical attacks to crazy over powered conceptual shit'.

I've never gotten over the fact weak ass mooks or LT's get thrown in for a fight when a captain could just one shot the weakling and then take on the boss.

You know what would be freaking awesome?
If Rukia's sister shows up as one of Yhwach's closest people or even his daughter.
And everyone freƔks out and only Ichigo has a moment of truth and realises that this means Rukia is also a quincy.
Ichigo would have one of those slowy turning around moments when you realise something fucks you up from behind, as Yhwach shouts awaken my daughter or some other shit and suddenly like when Rukia stabbed him in the fullbring Arc to awaken him her blade pierces him.
Rukia's entire ice/light them would fit this perfectly, it could also explain her sisters misterious sickness, by shit like Byakuya had hollow particles on him that slowly poisoned her and Rukia was simply stronger and by becoming a pseudo shinigami she gained a resistance.

Only thing that I would like to see more is something like Yama being the founding father of the Isshin household and Ichigo absorbing Ryuujin Jakka and killing Yhwach with it, because it and Ichigo saying something like the old man beat you again, even after his death.

I found Unohana.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomoe_Gozen

'Tomoe was especially beautiful, with white skin, long hair, and charming features. She was also a remarkably strong archer, and as a swordswoman she was a warrior worth a thousand, ready to confront a demon or a god, mounted or on foot. She handled unbroken horses with superb skill; she rode unscathed down perilous descents. Whenever a battle was imminent, Yoshinaka sent her out as his first captain, equipped with strong armor, an oversized sword, and a mighty bow; and she performed more deeds of valor than any of his other warriors.'

Because it's basically a bromance with one of them being female. Absolutely no romantic feelings but they make a great bros. That is why they had such a great relationship earlier in the manga. It wasn't the cliche main guy x main girl romance we've seen so many times, they actually built up a great partnership.

It reminds me of Soul and Maka. They never became a couple and there wasn't really any romance between them through the manga but they had an amazing and close relationship.

Hyourinmaru can manipulate a nigh-infinite quantity of ice and snow, while SnS hits absolute zero in a localized vicinity, with significant drawbacks.

They have nothing in common except for 'vaguely ice themed', and both have plenty of room for improvement.

Well but he is right in that regard.
SnS fucks over causality with ist absolute Zero, just like how Ryuujin Jakka does with being able to burn shit out of existence.
Hyourinmaru also is more weather/cloud/moisture Manipulation from what we got from the Haribel fight.

You know people give Hitsugaya a lot of shit, but other than Aizen his jobbing was understandable.

I mean sure he was weaker than Harribel, but I doubt the any of the captains barring Shunsui and Ukitake could have taken her 1v1.

And he seemed to be pushing Gin, although Gin does reveal that he was probably just playing considering he was as strong or stronger than Ichigo when they fought.

Bleach is such a tragedy
astronomical potential squandered on ass pulls every few chapter
Also their relationship has advanced next to nothing over the however many hundred chapters there have been and that's criminal
Its been so long I can't even remember the last time they had romantic development
>>
>>133789000
The Vizards had their big thing where they were going to go fight Aizen before Geass Sundays.

Hueco Mundo started while Eureka Seven was airing.

Ichigo lost to Renji for the first and last time before the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

The first chapter of Bleach was published only four years after End of Evangelion. At the time of publication the Twin Towers were still standing.

And in that time Berserk has done even less.

In the hospital, Rukia noticed that Ichigo was hiding something
She also felt his arrival before anyone else. Even Byakyua didn't notice it

Nothing from Ichigo's direction though. He was keen on reuniting with Renji and Rukia (pretty much losing it the first time) but that's it. I suppose he was really worried in the hospital though.

>>133790848
The main couple from Buso Renkin also came out after Ichigo/Rukia, but the author somehow managed to make that one work even better, maybe because it actually focused on the characters involved.
>>
In the bount arc, Rukia thanked Ichigo for saving her.

I wonder what Kubo feels about that, and everything else in the anime. He might consider it canon enough not to write it in the manga or even mention it. Maybe he even had some influence on the fillers, like the Ashido arc.
>>
>>133790894
It worked better because it actually ended! Ichigo Rukia would have been a fine couple had bleach ended after the SS arc, maybe with Rukia going back to earth rather than staying in SS. The way bleach is now I don't think Ichigo will end up with anyone.

i feel like this guy is really an underrated character, he's supposed to be one of aizen's right hands, yet he's never mentioned in discussions, far less so than gin. perhaps it's because he didn't have as big impact on the story as gin did, but i really liked him. He represented someone who went bitter and spiteful because of all the injustice he had suffered in the past

just try to put yourself in his shoes: You have this friend who you love and adore, unfortunately she goes to marry some asshole who works for the corrupt-as-hell military force who rules the area. She gets murdered in a petty argument, and the criminal doesn't even get a punishment! The shinigami were corrupt and originally just a mob of ruthless killers. I can easily understand why tousen was so easily swayed by aizen to destroy the shinigami. The shinigami weren't a group of peace-bringers as tousen's crush thought, they were more akin to a authoritarian military police who dictated what was right and wrong. It is perfectly understandable that tousen felt so much bitterness as he did, considering he wanted to infiltrate and undermine the entire organization.

As he himself stated, if he would lose sight of his goal and get fully integrated by the shinigami, THEN he would be fallen.

nah soul suicide is when a being explodes because its soul has been interfered with (ie a foreign entity has been added) and hasn't been balanced.

If it had ended after the soul society arc and Rukia had gone back to earth with him then he could have carried on being the substitute shinigami on patrole in karankura. Rukia didn't need to get her powers back (she was pretty fucking miserable prior to meeting Ichigo and the majority of SS where happy to sit back and let her get executed so fuck em) and she could have lived an normal human life. The life she never got to experience because she died as a baby.

The only thing that really needs tweaking is adding an extra Aizen battle at the end of the SS arc to finish him off, explain his motives etc, and you'd have a nice, neat, reasonably lengthed shounen series.

Then Kubo could have gone on to make a new series. He's always desperate to make new characters and hed be far more successful at that if he started a new series rather than trying to cram even more characters into an allready over crowded series.

Also, he was a massive bitch when he decided to ignore her once she joined the Kuchiki, clan no matter what his reasons. Not to mention how much of a shit he was when he came to earth to arrest her.

Renji is the last person Rukia deserves to be lumped with.

Besides, aging of souls in Bleach is probably tied to your mental age, how old you feel and such.

I'm not too invested in this series but I can appreciate the story giving the parts necessary to interpret it as a wonderful story of two people who share an unbreakable bond.

If it turns out to be much less than that then I'll be disappointed but still happy that I was able to enjoy that feeling while things were still uncertain.

If all you care about is winning then by all means make your bets and spam /a/ if you're right. I'll just enjoy the series for what it is right now.

Kishimoto didn't put romance in. He jumped ahead ~15 years and showed the characters already married off. Then he made a short sequel that shat all over one of the main couples.

>>133811052
Gin and Rangiku
Ryuuken and Katagiri
Isshin and Masaki
Nanao and Shunsui and Ohana
Giselle and Bambietta (?)
and many others who are love with someone or implied to be. Just because there is nothing with Ichigo, doesn't mean other characters aren't involved in romance or love. And it doesn't matter whom Ichigo loves or doesn't love, as his fate seems to be the new Soul King, trapped in a crytal cage with no limbs (and possibly be betrayed by the Shinigami).

It's the other way around.
The editors were the ones who looked at the readership demographics and pressed him to fujobait, in order to appeal to a wider market in hopes of keeping sales high.
The same pressure was put on Oda, but he told them it would actually be detrimental to pander, because it would alienate his male readers; and that's not what originally attracted female readers in the first place.

Because they both wanted to make a entire new system and be a different and more active Soul King. Wasn't that Aizen's main problem with Urahara, that he didn't thought how things should be. As things are right now, Ichigo can't change shit and probably doesn't want to be Soul King voluntarily. That could change, but for now it's more likely the Shinigami will force him to and cutting his limbs would probably make things easier. We just learned about a ceremonial sword, that can exactly do that.

Kubo wold pull out "She loves him so much that she deserves him" thing, but the problem is Orihime doesn't seem to show that love much. I remember one time she actually influenced Ichigo during Grimmjow fight, and Kubo didn't even let her overcome her fears, fucking Nel had to snap her out of it.
She could be the one kicking some sense into Ichigo after he got depressed when he saw Ishida going to the dark side, but it was Chad who helped him in the end. If Kubo really intends to make Ichihime endgame he does an awful job at it.

So as someone mentioned earlier Rukia is 150 year old.

Ichigo is basically an infant to her. How would their relationship work when there's so much knowledge and wisdom that Rukia has which Ichigo is simply ignorant of?
>>
>>133837597
>knowledge and wisdom
I think this thing is overrated. Especially since she has lived all her life in a rigid feudal system.

Besides, since people age so slow, they won't have that many experiences - like having all their friends die as they grow old. Sure, Rukia has lost her three childhood friends and Kaien and his Wife, but that's kinda different since it was combat. She has no reason to ponder her own life that much because it won't end any time soon, naturally at least.

Stop spouting your lies and misinformation.
The manga showed a clear, strong chemistry between the two throughout the first arc "They're just acquaintances." that has to be the biggest load of bull I've heard, they might have started that way, sure but overtime Ichigo and Rukia formed a really tight bond with one another.

The only difference is Orihime, in the Manga she showed clear affection for Ichigo, however It was Ichigo who treated her as a mere acquaintance.

All the Anime did was remove Orihime's early infatuation with Ichigo, nothing was added upon Ichigo and Rukia's foundations.
While removing Orihime's early feelings may cause bias, don't spout lies claiming "Ichigo and Rukia were just acquaintances, the anime added everything about their relationship."

But, it isn't.
If you could actually read and if you'd actually read the manga, it is clear Ichigo and Rukia have a strong bond that Ichigo and Orihime did not possess.
Can you provide any form explicit evidence that shows the entirety of Ichigo and Rukia's connection is fabricated by the Anime alone?
It's as simple as this;
Orhime sympathizers notice that Orihime's feelings are cut from the early anime, they then start grasping at straws going as far as saying Ichigo and Rukia's connection is entirely false too.

I have always felt painfully and indescribably indifferent towards the Ichigo/Rukia relationship. Why so many people are constantly and furiously jerking off to it is beyond me.

I'm not your enemy at all, I just like anything shipped with Ichigo. The one thing Hime has over Rukia is that her and Ichigo are the same age.

Also, we shouldn't put emphasis on the fact that he saved both of them, or even the fact that he saved Rukia first. The way the arcs go is in the order of how the audience met different characters; Rukia (SSarc), Orihime (Hueco Mundo arc), Chad (Fullbringer arc) and finally Ishida (Quincy arc).

Clearly Kubo won't put any romance but there is a little fun in speculating.

I was merely playing a jest. We're almost the same.

Orihime needs to do something though. Even if it fails. I don't particularly like her, but she could redeem herself in my eyes by acting on her feelings. It would at least have some effect on Ichigo, and that's always fun. Particularly in this case.

After their collective tsundere reaches critical mass, they cool down and become a loving couple, having skipped confessing, dating and all that lovey dovey shit in one fell swoop.

Byakuya forces them to get married though, can't have a noble Kuchiki give birth out of wedlock.

Then what do you think it's going to happen?
>>
>>133847515
I cant imagine a confession by anyone. Orihime or Rukia. I can only see it where Kubo super cuts to showing the winner of the ichigo bowl and there family in a epilogue with no explanation.

>Ichigo and Rukia are both from noble families
It's like pottery

>Shiba
>Noble family
Also, the whole Seirtei doesn't even know that Ichigo is a Shiba.
Oh shit, not even Rukia.

If Ichigo can get someone pregnant through his leaking reiatsu, then one should take note he is hanging around far more women than just Rukia. They probably won't even need Nanao-chan's sword to get him dismembered and into a crystal.

Reminder that this still has to happen at the end of the series.

I gather they would find out once Isshin comes to the wedding.
Didn't Ukitake suspect? I recall something like that, and Byakuya shushing him.

>>133847953
But his bond is strongest with Rukia. After all, she penetrated him. Twice. And slept in his closet for weeks.

>>133847999
Yeah. And now he can also unwittingly mention that he's a Shiba.

Rukia's feeling so complicated

> After all, she penetrated him. Twice.
Thanks, thanks a lot, now I'm seeing Ichigo as the pregnant one.

The only purpose of that scene was already revealed, stop being so delusional.

>>133748613
He wrote two bros then drew one of the bros as a girl and just ran with it.

>>133848401
And then Ichigo had the talk with his father.

But he hasn't had it with Rukia yet.
>>
>>133843344
He didn't look like that when neither of them got injured. And the point of this scene is the fact that Orihime is jealous of Rukia. Do you take her for an idiot that gets jealous over nothing or give her enough credit to take her feeling seriously?
>>
Fuck, IchiRukifags are so annoying, I want Orihime to win just to spite them.

I guess dressing like a slut just to get his attention is a start?

When will they end?

Bleach really is bad now, Kubo even made up something about Ichigo having an incomplete zanpakuto and completely remade it's appearance and powerlevel because his shikai didn't do shit and was already in bankai 95% of the time even though it's supposed to be a "final release".
