Watching this scene reminds me of the scene from the movie Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me where a character (Robin Swallows) was stabbed in the back, shot by machine guns, blasted by a missile in the face, fell off a high-rise (and landed as a cushion for Austin Powers), dragged behind a car—all that but yet still won’t die.
“Why won’t you die?!” asked Austin Powers.
That’s also what I wanted to say when I saw Ichigo looking like this.
The fact that Ichigo just won’t die no matter what kind of damage he takes is becoming more comedic rather than dramatic. Seriously, how can a Shinigami survive against an Espada who in his second form has supposedly enough reiatsu to destroy all of Hueco Mundo?
But we know he won’t die. He’s going to live. Not only that, he’s going to win! Why? Because, in his words, he has to. How? Who knows, but he simply has to. What?! Yea, I know how you feel: Bleach has become pure absurdity.
