Bleach #516 - The Squad Zero

This is what we've been waiting for?
This is what we've been waiting for?

In a Nutshell

Mayuri Kurotsuchi explains to Ichigo Kurosaki that it won't be easy to repair his bankai and is interrupted by the arrival of the Zero Division.

High Points

  • The Zero Division/Royal Guard is here!!!
  • One of the Royal Guard members is probably the best looking woman in Bleach.

Low Points

  • Wait, this is what I've been waiting for all this time?
  • Kon... and more Kon means more bad humor.

Rants and Raves

I've been eager awaiting the arrival of the Royal Guard ever since they were first talked about long ago but now that they're here, I'm incredibly let down. First off, there's only five of them. Second and most important, look at the character designs. We get a fat tranny that reminds me of Taikon from the latest movie, some goofball that makes Don Kanonji look cool, and finally some guy with a ridiculous bansho pompadour. I've got a terrible feeling that they'll all have personalities and dialog to match the ridiculousness of their designs as well.

Grade

C-. Extreme disappointment and bad jokes add up to a craptacular Bleach chapter this week.

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.

oh come on, kon wasn't that bad.

but yes, that is one of the best looking bleach ladies I've ever seen.

though it would be interesting to see if they are going to be stationed in the seretei or just temporarily there.

Somebody should be there to tell Kubo that he's not funny. Somebody also should have taken over the writing duties of Bleach.

I disagree, Yoruichi is still the best in my books

I have a feeling that lady on the left is Kirio Hikifune, the former 12th Division Captain :)

This how I feel about the chapter

@Destinyheroknight: Halibel stole Yoruichi's crown the day she got out of those Aizen pants and put on the bone skirt imo.

On a serious note, I hope these character just look kinda dumb but their powers are actually cool--and by cool I mean like more powerful sword, ice dragon cool... not magic PSP, nenodroid doll, cool. I've got this horrible image of the fat lady having some power called Lard Guard that makes people get stuck in her cellulite or turns them super obese in an instant and the dude who looks like DeeJay from Street Fighter summoning his shikai by saying feel di riddim and his bankai is a break dancing competition or something equally goofy.

@sickVisionz: Less is best :)

Well, I have somewhat fate in Kubo about his powerful characters having cool powers. Let not forget how weak the Fullbrings was :/

I think Ichigo got his Bankai broken before, and he managed to repair it without help

@Kuro_San: I think it was his shikai.

The first part legitimately made me laugh, but I roared when you got to the part about Lard guard and Dee jay because I was thinking the same thing XD These guys look pretty silly, except the girl. And really, stronger than all 13 put together? -_-;

I haven't finished the Fullbring arc yet, but I am massively disappointed by the look of the zero squad. The only cool looking character is the woman next to the guy with sunglasses and the worlds creepiest smile.

Here's hoping they at least have cool powers.

As silly as the Zero Guard look, they don't look all that different from the regular soul reapers. I'm guessing that Jubo felt that he needed to make the series a bit lighter after weeks of seeing the Soul Society getting stomped. To Kubo's credit, at least he didn't do this:

@Acura_Max:

You crazy, the Ginyu Force are awesome and also they meant to be jokes to (they not the strongest characters in the series). There other ways to be lighter then having your powerful characters look like clowns

Ginyu Force rules, Zero Guard drools

@Destinyheroknight: I'm not saying that the Ginyu Force is bad and I know that they were supposed to be a joke. I'm just saying that this is something we have seen before in Bleach (vizards) and that it could have been sillier.

@Acura_Max:

But the vizards are even in silliness and serious, the Zero Guard isn't even at all. (there only one serious person in the group).

Gotta agree about the Vaizards. Most of them were pretty straight forward designs. The fat guy was about as out there as it got and he was just funny because fat people in tightish suits are funny. His character was pretty straightforward and serious though.

The Royal Guard looks like less anatomically exaggerated One Piece characters.
