Heeeeyy. So I said we would have stuff up last week but in all honesty, I’ve had zero motivation to read anything manga related. I did take ballet class and pilates and then went swimming yesterday though. Proud of myself! Now about this poll…
We received 87 votes in total! We are very pleased that you all took the time to share your opinions. You guys are great.
Let’s start our simple little discussion with the character(s) having the third highest vote:
3rd Place (13 Votes) : Ulquiorra – Bleach
§eraph: Look at this picture. LOOK AT IT!!! Do you SEE. WHAT. IS. HAPPENING? I thought so. As I’ve said before, Ulquiorra is my favourite character in Bleach. Yes… ‘is’. A piece of my heart disintegrated when he pretended to die. Fooled all of you didn’t he? Whenever I read Bleach my mood brightened every time Ulqui-sama appeared on the page. I want him to be resurrected somehow only because I reeaaally think he and the scatterbrained Orihime would make an electrifying couple…with their clashing personalities and all ❤ WHY CAN’T YOU PEOPLE SEE IT?! Oh, he totally died a virgin…and Ichigo will follow.
mu§e: Ulquiorra isn’t dead. you silly mortals. I refuse to believe it. My hubby will be back.
As usual, the wunderkind, je§ter, has something more sensible to say:
(comma ‘slice’ ?? :O )
The concept of coming back from the dead is a tricky subject. I’m personally quite indifferent to the resurrection of deceased characters. It’d be nice if everyone we thought shouldn’t have died were to pop up again, but then where would we place them in the story? Ulquiorra for example… Despite his unfortunately anti-climactic demise, what purpose would he serve now in the battle of Shinigami VS Vandenreich?

3rd Place (13 Votes) Jiraiya – Naruto
je§ter: Naruto has already obtained the true sage power AND the Fox’s power…what can Jaraiya do besides provide some perverted laughs? I really know nothing about Naruto or any of the other stories mentioned here though, so those’re just my musings.
§eraph: Jiraiya is turning in his grave at the horror story that is now Naruto. He should not be revived. I’m glad he died with his dignity and badassery in tact. Why would you wanna ruin that?
mu§e: Aahh, Ero-Sennin, your kickass ways coupled with your pervy actions…you never ceased to make me laugh. Your death horrified me in ways I cannot describe. RIP dude.

2nd Place – Itachi (19 Votes) – Naruto
mu§e: The only Uchiha I ever liked and they had to kill him off *sigh*…and all I got left is sasuke who I hate with a religious passion. Life is so unfair. Can we please trade them?
§eraph: Naruto again?? Um, no…just no. Zombie Itachi was bad enough. Has Sasuke encountered him in this form? He made too many awful sacrifices when he was alive to be considered for a proper resurrection. It would be too awkward for everyone. Was Itachi gay?

1st Place (26 Votes) Ace – One Piece
mu§e: Fire Fist Ace…….*sobs*…I can’t do this right now, don’t do this to me.
§eraph: Another no for me. I enjoy hating Akainu. Ace’s death created a perfect reason for Luffy to bash the shit out of a Fleet Admiral. Sounds like an inevitable showdown for the future Pirate King. I’m far more interested in seeing the big guys go all out. Why Oda no show us all-out fights with big guys? As much as Ace’s death upset me, I am grateful that he was sacrificed for what I hope will be an amazing and memorable fight (I’ll be 30 when that happens). Why else did Oda kill him off?

So there is some value in leaving characters who were awesome in their time as is…very dead. Even Kamina. You also voted for the following characters:
Fred Weasley (Harry Potter) – 7 Votes
Teresa (Claymore) – 4 Votes
Whitebeard (One Piece) – 2 Votes
Other – 3 Votes
Why wasn’t Kamina included in the poll? I forgot 😦
