Bleach (manga) – 313: To Close Your World

This is it. It looks like the Hueco Mundo arc is coming to an end. They are taking the fight to the human world — the home town of Ichigo and friends.

Why am I still following Bleach? Admittedly, Bleach’s basic story-structure is pretty simple and boring:

  1. girl get in trouble;
  2. guy vow to rescue girl;
  3. guy run into tough enemy;
  4. guy get ass kicked;
  5. guy power up;
  6. guy toss ridiculously powerful energy bolts around;
  7. guy save girl;
  8. ???
  9. PROFIT!
  10. Lather, rince and repeat

However, what makes Bleach still interesting is that

  • it has interesting match-ups of fights carefully picked from among a huge cast of well-developed characters and that
  • it gives a sense of a much larger story-backdrop than just the simple lives of its main characters.

For examples, some of the fights and story developments I look forward to see:

  • Ichigo vs. Ulquiorra, take 2.
  • Ichigo’s dad vs. Aizen. You know Ichigo will lose to Aizen and then will require his dad to come to the rescue.
  • Tousen’s betrayal of Aizen It’ll be interesting to see how Tousen’s ultra-sense of honor and Aizen’s deceitfulness will collide.
  • Orihime’s betrayal of Aizen Will she become the first major character in Bleach to pay the ultimate price?
  • What is Aizen’s reason against the King of Soul Society? Just don’t tell me he is his father. Eeeek!
  • What was Ichigo’s dad reason for leaving Soul Society?
  • Still waiting for Kenpachi’s shikai.

So have faith, my friends. Bleach is going to be good.

    Yes, it has been quite a while since an antagonist in any anime has been so charismatic as he is enigmatic.
