| Well, Ichigo did conveniently and nonchalantly reply to Isshin's "I'm sure you expect some answers" by saying 'Nah, not really, I don't give a damn.' |
With that quote even Isshin admits because they were in a crisis the time had naturally arose for Ichigo to learn the truth. By Ichigo saying no I dont want to know especially at that point in time, it makes Ichigo less believable as a character. Any character driven by real motivations would want to know the truth, especially if you winning an upcoming death match hinges upon that truth. It makes me become aware of the machinations which as a reader/viewer I should never be aware of.
| The same goes this time around - Ginjo explains half of the loopholes in the storyline and as a response Ichigo does immediate bankai while shouting "Shut up!'. This at least explains what the show is about - fighting rather than any sort of straightforward plotline. |
Correct, part of the beauty of the Rescue Rukia arc was the story was just enough to manoeuvre Ichigo into fights. Somewhere, in between the story started to taking precedence over the fights and the problems to me at least, became glaringly obvious and more prominent over time. Kubo had the plan that Bleach would last five years. For all purposes included it makes sense but when one arc take 4 years in itself to complete, something has become bloated and indulgent.
And even if the fighting is what Bleach is about, can you say that the current fullbring fights are memorable infact are they even good. Maybe im bias but the fights seem a bit pointless especially with SS not even breaking a sweat and ending it in 5 mins or so.
The only thing I found fascinating was the names/references to songs and bands of fullbringers abilities. Like Yukio's "invaders must die" ability.
