The Manji (Swastika) is somewhat prevalent in Manga. The character Manji from Blade of the Immortal, is fairly well known for it as well, as he sports a big one on the back of his outfit.

I'd be willing to buy this fullbring crap if the badge had ever been mentioned more than in passing. It's never been noteworthy, and acting as if it had been all this time just irks me.

That irked me as well, though I wouldn't go so far as to say I'd buy this crap otherwise. :P

Its not what it represents; Its how its interpreted. This is the internet we're talking about here.

New chapter: Really, we should all be used to the random *** pulls at this point. So what is Ichigo now? Half Human, half Shinigami, half Hollow, half Vizard, half Fullbringese?

Pretty sure you have to have a full *** to keep pulling stuff out of it when the moment calls.

One thing I wanted to point out, been itching at my brain.
He's all like "this feels like Getsuga Tenshou" he swings it a spinning circle comes out hit the creature and just pops. I mean it looked weak as sin, yeah the pig fell over but seriously?

It didn't look like it had any "oomph" it didnt cut through, it didnt blow up ,it just kinda popped out of existence.

As for all the Its a swastika stuff, kanji for Bankai is 卍解, Thats why it looks like that its actually how you write ban.

Quote:
卍, which is most commonly read as "ban" or "man" is an archaic Buddhist symbol that is also a Japanese kanji that is not widely used. It has a mystic holy and solar meaning that can be derived from various religious scripture penned by Buddhist scholars.

I stopped reading Bleach right after Aizen got owned. Has anything of value happened since then, or should I continue to not care?

Every female in the series has yet to flash their DD+ tits yet, so no.

Hey, with all the *** pulls this series takes, I'm having a hard time following. I don't remember if there was half a frame where it was being reattached or magicked back on or super robot armed or whatever.

Wasn't that partly the power of his original and final Getsuga Tenshou?

Remove things from existence?

Not really. It "turned him into Getsuga" or something, IIRC. He did a massive attack that oneshot ButterflAizen, but it didn't remove anything from existence or anything.

Here's a video of the attack from the anime.

Don't think so, but still the only thing it removed was itself the pig guy was just fine, he didnt go anywhere, Ichigo's spinning ban symbol just went pop and was gone.

I read the manga, but ever since Dattebayo dropped the series (and are now apparently also removed from thet internet too), I haven't been able to follow the anime. Crunchyroll doesn't allow me to view Bleach nor Naruto for copyright issues either. Ah well, local channels are bound to start with the series some time.


I just can't recall it exactly anymore, it's been a while, but I thought it was said just before Ichigo started to train to get the final Getsuga, most likely by his father. I'll have to try and find those episodes, see what exactly has been said, I just have lousy long term memory I fear.
