@taichokage: Yes I would like to apologise for my aggressiveness there if it came across as such, I had just spent the last 48 hours awake finishing up some programs and a paper for my module among other things and the way I remembered how Kubo finished Unohana off when I made my first post. All that just left me in that kind of mood where eveything is annoying.
@taichokage: I hope you are right as she is one of the few characters I find likable. Didn't see the logic in killing her off 4-5 pages after her Bankai was finally revealed, she deserved a much better death than that if he decides to follow it through thats for sure.
A bit more info on her Bankai would have been nice too beyond just a flood of ink, I didn't like how vague it was beyond the apparant corrosive nature of it. At least she has some high level healing abilities to go with her status as the Captain of the 4th Squad now, so at least thats worth a mention.
There is seemingly no 'perfect' way to truly say goodbye. So I gathered a bunch of them!
