Weekly Bleach Discussion: Chapter 402

Join us for a discussion about this week’s newest Bleach chapter, and how much we hate Aizen.

Congratulations, you survived hell. Last week was Golden Week in Japan, so we were all left high and dry without any of our favorite Shonen Jump manga. Starting today we are going to change the way we discuss these series. Instead of one giant Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach post, we will be separating them into each individual post. So up to bat first is Bleach with chapter 402. Finally we can see Urahara Kisuke in action, but does he give Aizen the beat down we have been waiting to see? Let’s find out.

 

Summary: After all these years, Urahara has finally appeared in front of Aizen, ready to hopefully kick his sorry ass. Aizen starts things off by taunting Urahara about not being able to control the Hogyoku as well as himself, though Urahara doesn’t seem to care. Either way Aizen finally decides talking is stupid, and stabs Urahara in the chest, but of course Urahara is smarter than this, and made a blowup doll to take his place. With Aizen thrown off guard, Urahara starts throwing bakudo kido or holding spells, at Aizen, which completely immobilizes him.

With him stuck their, Urahara lets loose a very destructive hadou spell, which would probably kill anyone in this manga. However, since Aizen is sleeping with Kubo, he survives. Aizen doesn’t have to care about dodging anymore, thanks to his Hogyoku. However, Urahara was expecting Aizen to be this cocky, so he used a kido seal that traps reiatsu inside of his hands, not allowing it to flow out of his palms. Which results in an enormous explosion that engulfs Aizen.

Prediction:
So Aizen just exploded, which means that he’s going to be awfully pissed in the next chapter. So obviously, he is going to survive this explosion. And I’m going to go out on a limb and say that he is going to be fully transformed in his pure hogyoku state when he regenerates as well. Also Urahara is going to get his ass kicked.

Final Thoughts: Even though we have all been waiting to see Urahara’s bankai, this is just as good. Urahara doesn’t need these things to kick ass, his skill with Kido alone is all he needs to get the job done.

I love seeing Aizen get his ass kicked, but then I remember that the walking PIS machine will always survive.

This.  Aizen, Hollow Ichigo and Urahara are about the only interesting things in Bleach imo.  Good chapter though.  Aizen+Urhara in one chapter is always win.

As much as i love Urahara, i thought the story has gotten piss poor now, I dont see how all of a sudden Aizen is getting hit by Kido spells, where before everything is dodged/ illusioned. Its just kinda getting ridiculous since Isshin arrived. Aizen suddenly has lost his god mode lol. I mean Aizen was hit by like four kido spells in a row? that aint ever happened before. And tbh Urahara shouldnt be any stronger than some of the other captains.
Aceron May 6, 2010 at 2:46 p.m.
@Chengy:  It was kinda explained. Aizen allowed himself to get hit, because he was confident that nothing Kisuke did would have no effect. In essence he underestimated just how smart and well prepared Kisuke is. What would you rather have Aizen constaly PIS his way out of each battle he's been in. Depends on what captains. Yamamoto, Retsu, Shunsui and Ukitake then no. All the others  he should be stronger, he was a captain for longer and before them. Mayuri is basically a understudy to Kisuke. He's just as smart as Aizen which makes him dangerous.
 
Still their was no reason for him to show up. Isshing should have been enough to fight Aizen.
Chengyon May 6, 2010 at 3:36 p.m.
@Acer: Well yes but its poorly explained with crappy reasons. "he didnt feel the need to dodge" stuff like that just seems out of character and lame.
 
And i was mainly thinking Shunsui, who got instantly cut down by Aizen in a second.

good chapter, i think in the next chapter aizen will be fine and proceed to kick kiske's ass.

Aizen fuses completly with the hogukyo but cant seem to move or control his body
Aizen "What the?"
Urahara "Fufu fu, you dont know that i planted my seed inside that object, you are a now a spawn birthed from the Hogukyo and im your papa"
GodLen staff on May 7, 2010 at 11:35 a.m.
@Chengy:  and then you are going to find out that Aizen was really Urahara in disguise. 
cfatalison May 7, 2010 at 12:08 p.m.
@Chengy: chestburster?
Chengyon May 7, 2010 at 12:09 p.m.
Mind fuck lol

I'm waiting for that other shoe to drop. So while Urahara did his thing... I've got a feeling tha's not gonna last too long. Hopefully I'm wrong. But his skill with kido was off the hook.
