Mangaka: Tite Kubo Title: Battlefield Shallows, Otherfield Abyss Rating: 7/10
Synopsis: Hey guess what? It’s a Bleach review and stuffs =]. Chapter 442 starts off by confirming something that I long suspected: Riruka’s a [various unpleasant adjectives have been removed here], and everybody hates her. Lovely, glad to see we’re all on the same page. Meanwhile in the fishtank-with-a-face, Ichigo displays the typical hero-attitude by waiting for Jackie to bring out her fullbring before making a move. Not one to keep a guy waiting, she makes a split second trip to J.C. Penny for a new outfit and… oh wait no, it’s just her fullbring. Dirty Boots. That’s its name. Anywho, they rough it a bit and Ichigo asks her which outlet – I mean what the clothes do, but she’s too smart to tell him thaaaat [=O]. The fight goes on. Elsewhere, Inoue tries to have an intimate relationship with a lamppost but fails. Lol. She and Chad are finally having that heart to heart on the phone, where she fills him in on everything that actually happened before he and Ichigo rushed onto the scene.
Scene-switch. Tsukishima tells Shishigawara [whom Inoue seems set on calling “Sushigawara” lol] that he can step down on the Inoue case [see: killing her] because “she’s already taken care of,” and wonders who they should go after next…
Best Character: Ichigo. Seems like the guy’s on his way in the getting-back-his-powers department. Hoorah.
Worst Character: Inoue beats Riruka today, partly because Riruka’s lack of face time [yay!], but mostly because she walked into a lamppost. Like, really? =|
Likes: Progress from Ichigo. Good to see some of his mobility is back. Also, interaction between between the two long-named fellows was amusing.
Dislikes: Actually, there wasn’t much I disliked about this chapter… Not much really happened I guess but it wasn’t awful or anything.
More Chapter Ratings:
mu§e: 6.5/10 – And I feel like this is a very high rating for Bleach at the moment, but I’m TRYING to be nice here. Just a lot of useless talking and then talking back, trying to seem cooler and stronger than the other person when in fact, nothing is happening -_-. And yeah, I’ll say it. Am I the only one that thought that “Diry Boots” was some kinda lame knock off of “Dark Boots,” Lenalee’s innocence in D.Gray Man? I was not impressed at all. Imma stop there before I go into a rant.
§eraph: 6/10 – Well…at least Ichigo is moving on with his training. I’m interested in the mysteries concerning Orihime and the stabbing incident with the guy she-thought-was-her-friend-but-she-really-confused-him-for-ulquiorra-who-she-is-in-love-with-cuz-she-be-unstable-yo lol Are Tsukishima and Shishigawara really evil? I kind of don’t get that vibe from them. Especially Sushi-kun (hmmm….) This chapter wasn’t bad at all. Looks like it will take a while before things REALLY pick up in interest though -_-
Not-So-Random Question: Was Inoue always this stupid? Seems like she had an intellectual circumcision recently or something.
