Bleach #510 - The Extinction
In a Nutshell
After a bizarre flashback where Quincy twins were delivered by minstrel show actors, it is revealed that the Juha Bach battling theCaptain Commander (who will be affectionately referred to as "Yamyam" from now on out) was an imposter. The real Juha appears, immediately steals Yamyam's Bankai and destroys the headquarters of the Gotei 13's First Squadron for the purpose of getting to the man held prisoner underneath it: AIZEN "That Dude" SOUSUKE!
- Um, AIZEN IS COMING BACK!
- Yamyam's arrogant ass gets made a fool of.
- Twins named Loyd and Royd? That's almost as bad as my high school Latin textbook where twins were named Lomax and Anti-Lomax.
Rants and Raves
Aizen is my favorite anime bad guy and one of my favorite anime characters period. He embodies everything that is right about bad guys. He is cold, calculating, and no amount of half-assing and luck will let you stumble your way into a victory against him. LikeGin so eloquently said during the Decide Arc, "even if you plan for the sky falling and the Earth splitting, Lord Aizen is beyond your plans."
Additionally, BLEACH is filled with arrogant bastards and Aizen is the grand equalizer for all of that. Who s*it talks the s*it talkers?Aizen, that's who. Seeing Aizen make a straight up mockery out of his opponents without even breaking a sweat is pure ecstasy. Especially, when they swear up and down about how powerful they are and how much Aizen will pay for his actions.
Just this weekend I had to fight strong urges to buy a replica of his Zanpakuto. The only reason I didn't buy it is because I knew I'd quickly break it running around the house watching episodes of BLEACH and swinging it like an idiot. So yeah, I loved this chapter and I got ridiculously amped to see that Juha was coming for Aizen. Additionally, anyone who blindly followed the orders to executeRukia has had my ire since that arc and Yamyam was the worst offender. I could write four more paragraphs about my hate for him, but I'll wrap this up with a simple LOL Yamyam.
S Rank. No amount of plusses behind an A could convey how good this chapter is.
William Taylor is enraged that chibi Rock Lee is robbing him of seeing his beloved Aizen in anime form. Follow the melancholy on Twitter @mrsickvisionz.
