I always liked Rukia as a character and only kept reading for her scenes which became sparser and sparser
I think the moment I realized the manga had become bad was during Fake Karakura with its endless one-on-one fights. It was the first time I disliked the manga for simply being boring and not for neglecting Rukia.
Nobody gave a shit about Love and Rose
I was also underwhelmed by her bankai when she got it and finally dropped it after Bambi got fucked. Didn't pick it up again until I saw the "last chapter soon" threads and marathoned it to the finish
That's a really nice pic of Orihime. I always wonder why scanners never level images correctly.
She is. Poor dear gets bullied for her small bust and love for her older brother too much.
someone please tell me why best girl Rukia from a hit manga never has any doujins???!!!!
High Impact Sexual Violence.
I never thought Orihime was particularly attractive until the Shoujo S opening where they wear the same size outfit. It's outrageously sexy how much she's bursting out of that uniform, she's just too tall and too thick.
Always really preferred Rukia because she's bite-sized and smart and reminds me of when I thought Bleach was going to be about fashionable teens solving ghost mysteries. But what's his face really sucks, I'm glad she got together with Renji at the end.
Orihime is not tall. It's just that Rukia's really small.
No, which is ridiculous if you ask me, considering Orihime calls Riruka and Rangiku, who she knew later than Rukia, by their first names.
>Uryu/Ichigo (it's especially funny that Ichigo is on the first name basis with half the seiretei, including his rivals)
>Ichigo/Shinji (he uses other Vizards first names)
I don't know if it's a thing in Japan for some people very close to each other to never start using their first names, but that's definitely the case in Bleach.
For the men it may be a manly thing, and for people of opposite sex it might be a close-but-not-that-close thing (wrt Renji & Kira with Hinamori).
Ichigo is also a weird one. It's like he arbitrarily assign people with whatever name he likes and then stick with it forever. Orihime's pretty much the only person whose name changes for him (and it would be very weird if it doesn't).
>For the men it may be a manly thing
Kyouraku used to call Aizen by the first name (before him becoming captain), Ukitake calls both Sentaro and Kaien like this. I don't think calling people by last name is a "manly thing" for them. I'd assume they used to be like this in academy, and then it just stuck.
>for people of opposite sex it might be a close-but-not-that-close thing (wrt Renji & Kira with Hinamori)
They were friends since the academy days and are shown to care for each other very deeply in SS arc. I don't think Shinji (the only person using her first name) is really that much closer with Momo than these two.
Shit forgot pic.
Yes. Soi Fon is Soi Fine.
She was also bordering main in the first half of the Arrancar arc, defeating a few enemies (Espada included), getting Orihime's and Ichigo's resolve back and even getting some character development herself.
Rukia got one fight in the last arc and we barely saw her after that. Orihime used her powers in different ways from healing to shielding and even as transportation in some panels. Even in the end she used her powers to help fix Ichigos sword. We saw her a lot more than Rukia in the last three arcs.
