Let's be honest: Very little of Bleach has been worth reading since the Soul Society arc ended. I still read it because every now and then, amidst the stupidity of it all, something so retarded happens that it's funny. Such as Nel being a former Espada, the way Kenpachi beat Nnoitra, and OH HAI Yammy appearance.
Some parts are almost more stupid than I can bear, like Nnoitra having eight limbs, Kira being formerly of 4th squad, captains having to save vice-captains twice from different fraccion, a limb from each of Halibel's girls miraculously forming a creature more powerful than higher-numbered Espada, Matsumoto's wound not killing her, and Old Man Yama letting Halibel's girls live.
Well, fwiw, I'm actually pretty sure Yamamoto didn't let them live; he "burned [their souls] away." (He's big into the KILL THEM ALL these days, which I'm sure will in no way lead to Aizen getting the soul-destruction-power he needs anyway and another Just As Planned moment. ...Actually, that probably won't happen, because something stupider and more annoying will happen instead.)
Somewhere along the line, I just got fundamentally out of sync with the way I was supposed to feel as a Bleach fan. :/ The characters I couldn't care less about (or actively hate) are the ones who get panel time / "badass" moments, and the ones I like either start acting dumb or annoying, are lucky to cameo every couple of years, or both. And then I start wondering: was Bleach ever actually good, or was I just totally on drugs without knowing it?
(The resolution of Kenpachi vs. Nnoitra was fucking hilarious, though. And I'd be lying if I said all would not be instantly forgiven if the Arrancar medic revealed that she'd regrown her head and been behind the sofa the whole time and/or Hanatarou did something cool.)
Happy Birthday, Ms. Bub!
Now hypothetically, if someone were interested in reopening communication with you, whaaaaaat would be a good way of doing that?
Hop onto IRC and message me up. I'll give you my cell phone number and we can exchange text messages all day long and brush each other's hair and tell ghost stories and make s'mores and talk about Final Crisis.
Wait, is this supposed to be a sleepover or a camping trip? I'm confused and frightened.
Iiii don't have IRC anymore. D8 Why not just send an LJ PM or e-mail it to playing dot mantis at gmail dot com? :D
Happy Boifday. You're older than me again. I always relish this month of youngness...
You young people, with your loud hair and long music...
Happy birthday! Twenty-four is an amazing number.
You name your male characters "Tucker"? I knew that you sometimes named them "Jackie" from reading your Glucose journal 3240589340 years ago, but I didn't know "Tucker" made an appearance.
You make me miss video games and Bleach. ;_; MAKE SCHOOL STOP.
I'm not going to be prime again for five more years! :<
Yes'm! Usually Jackie. Sometimes Terrance, if it fits. (Nimue or Beatrice if it's a girl!)
I have performed the ritual for the ending of school; unfortunately, it'll take three and a half months before it fully activates. (My jokes are amazing! I should get a badge!)
Heyyyyy birthday! Did you do anything fun?
I went to Chick-fil-A for breakfast and Popeye's for supper and ate cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory and also watched an episode of Flight of the Concords!
As soon as I saw the spoilers for the previous Bleach chapter my thoughts went directly to you, and how unhappy you'd be about it.
At one time Bleach was definitely worth reading... Everything up until the SS arc ended was wonderful, and there have been parts of the Las Noches arc I enjoyed. Wonderweiss and Nel were great, except that, like every other character I like in manga, they've fallen off the face of the earth. Oh, and Szael and Luppi too. But they're dead.
I still want to know what Mayuri found in Szayel's closet. Also, happy birthday! 8>
Aww. :'D Thank you!
I'm pretty sure he found Cirucci and Dordonii's (mostly?-)dead bodies, so I wouldn't be too surprised if they get revived/healed and then Join the Party along with Grimmjow and Afro Man.
Maybe Hana, Nel, and Wonderweiss could have a tea party or something; I think they'd all get along. (It would make a nice between-chapters omake...)
JUST like! :D
I really like Rune Factory. I ended up doing the storyline-ish thing (kinda) and marrying Mist. I dunno. I just felt obligated to.
But I'd really like to marry Major Lynette. Doesn't she make you ~vaguely~ think of Beatrix? Maybe it's just the eyepatch.
I haven't actually met Lynette in-game yet, but omg, she's hot (I've seen her when I looked up what different girls like as gifts online, ha ha). I haven't decided who I want to marry yet! They're all way too hot!! :<
This is extremely late but this has been in my mind ever since the Arrancar/Hueco Mundo arc ended. But here I am, reading the latest Fullbring chapter.
