Renji has grown up to be quite the man in the forty or so chapters he has been away from us. Not only has he been training to take out Aizen, but he also dislikes hitting girls; what a guy! But seriously, I sort of like the idea of everyone training to take out Aizen, so that if he does escape, even a crappy character like Iba would be able to take him out. Either way, let’s see if Renji will bring the Dirty Boots to the cleaners.
Hot damn Mrs. Dirty Boots sucks! One hit by Renji’s hilt was enough to completely floor her. How embarrassing for the full bring users, I mean seriously is this supposed to be a joke? None of them can even hold a candle to the captains, I’m sure even a group of hollows might be able to take out this rag tag group of crybabies. But I digress, they do have some good points when pressured like Jackie’s suicide to help Renji escape from this hellish video game.
Yukio and Hitsugaya go head to head as well in this chapter. Yukio like every other full bring user in these last few chapters gets his butt handed to him. But Yukio really has no excuse for loosing, since he can control everything in this world. I suppose not even God can take out Hitsugaya, which I’m sure will please his fan girls. So the question on all of our minds is this: Will Tsukishima and Ginjo be pushovers as well?
Supposedly if Jackie had no chance to defeat Renji, Yukio would pull the plug on their “chat room” and kill them both. What I don’t understand is why Yukio could not just pull the plug even with Jackie’s death and kill Renji? Why must Jackie die for Renji to be released? Isn’t Yukio the god of this world, can’t he just kill all the shinigami at once and get it over with?
Also I have no idea how Jackie killed herself. Did she chop her own head off or something? I know this is in Shonen Jump and everything so they can’t show much, but don’t leave me hanging!
THE VERDICT 3/5
I have to admit Renji really turned me on in this chapter with his awesome speeches about giving up his life rather than hitting a girl. I’m not really a fan of Renji, but I’m starting to see the light. I’m excited to see if Ikkaku’s fight will be just as easy, or if Moe is actually a lot stronger than we first imagined.
