Bleach #505 - The Fire
In a Nutshell
- Cool art
- The Gotei 13 proves once again that they are the worst army ever.
- Nothing happened other than Soul Society reali
Rants and Raves
One thing that annoys me about Bleach more than anything else is the half-ass nature of the Shinigami. In reality, it's Tite Kubo's fault but it leads to these situations where the fate of Soul Society is on the line and the Gotei 13 is meh, who caresabout their duty. It's important to note here that they are the first and last line of defense for protecting Soul Society. This is their sole purpose for existing yet it takes them forever to realize this in battles and sometimes they never do.
The Captain Commander gets upset and all of the sudden people realize hey, you know what? Maybe we shouldn't get beaten up and killed. I like to imagine that during the battle prep meetings there's always this vote of Should we actually try and protect Soul Society? and twelve captains vote no while there is one captain screaming in the background like, "No, no, no! What? No. Are you fools?" Or better yet, it plays out like the Nay Guy from the Simpsons.
The saving grace of this chapter was the artwork and for that I'll give it a C. Outside of the Shinigami realizing that they shouldn't be idiots, nothing whatsoever happened in this chapter.
William Taylor holds Bleach deeply in his heart, but when he thinks about it, it makes him want to fart. Unlock the mystery on Twitter @mrsickvisionz.
