I think you guys forgot Ichigo's main power: His "I'm Inexplicably Stronger Than You Now" ability. Similar to the "I just realized something and my Power Level just doubled," "being Super Saiyan," and "Green Latern."

Apparently the anime is finally getting around to starting the Fullbring arc this week. I might pick it back up just to see how they go through things.

Yeah. Surprisingly, the little girl is the only other one I don't hate though. I would not have expected that. Still don't like her, of course.

Next we'll find out that the current bad guys aren't actually bad guys but the real bad guys are really bad guys in comparison to the not bad guys.

And I still bet it involves Aizen.

Early chapter, and I'm surprised considering how far he had to reach up his *** to pull this one off. I'm thinking at least shoulder.

Ukitake? Really? With absolutely no set up or anything? Did he just toss a list of names into a hat and pick one out at random?
I'm betting on at least a different looking Bankai, but the same old "My Power Level just multiplied ten-fold so now I'm faster, stronger, and generally better at everything" mode.
REALLY on Ukitake?

Ok, so they were monitoring him. So what? If their job is literally the safety of all existence, wouldn't they want to keep track of anyone even vaguely shinigami-level in terms of power?

I just fail to see how this makes Soul Society, or even just Ukitake evil.

Basically Ginjo is one of those crazy conspiracy theorists that gets super paranoid that they bugged his house. "ICHIGO. ICHIGO. OH MY GOD, ICHIGO. THEY'RE LISTENING TO US, ICHIGO. THEY PUT NANOBOTS IN VACCINATIONS TO KEEP TABS ON US AND ALKDJFALDFKAJJFLADK ILLUMINUTTY."

It's like the "horrifying revelations" that Android phones all have usage statistic collections built into the root of the OS. They're monitoring your every move! They know when your phone turns off and on! THEY KNOW YOUR SCREEN DISPLAY IS SUCKING UP FIFTY PERCENT OF YOUR BATTERY USAGE!!!!

... and I, like Ichigo, am like "Uh, so?" If it means they can figure out a patch to save me some battery life, I'm all for it.

Now that'd be brilliant, Ichigo throwing the argument back at Ginjou by mentioning he's a nutcase and probably the reason they SHOULD be monitored. I'd actually like that.

I like Ichigo's new sword design. That's something positive. Though on the opposite end of the spectrum we have Ginjo who seems to employ the "Look as evil as possible by piling on tons of evil looking things" design.

The power of heart friendship prevails again.

To be fair, though, this puts us back where we started. Either it was just something Ginjou attempted to break Ichigo's spirit or there's something serious about Ukitake/SS, which is unlikely as they're seemingly the good guys and just GAVE him his powers back.

Anyways, point being, we're still back to where we were. Ginjou is an immediate enemy and must be dealt with, but why? The reason he's given is pointless, he's just a paranoid psycho. There's absolutely no story to be told as it stands, which is what kind of bugs me.

We still don't know how/why Ginjo was made a "substitute Shinigami" in the first place.

I'm going with... they made the "watch his every move" badge just for Ginjo because they already knew he was rogue, but after the Rukia/Ichigo situation came up, it was a handy way to monitor those two as well, even if nothing Ichigo had done actually warranted monitoring yet.

They might think it is for the best to monitor someone who in a month or two of being a Shinigami just about matches a captain in strength and with that has a ridiculously high and unstable amount of spiritual power. as some have already stated that is probably a pretty good reason there given the Soul Society's duty.

Right, but he hadn't done anything wrong (aside from "taking" Rukia's powers in the first place, which itself has a huge question mark since he is kinda/sorta half shinigami anyway and it was more of an awakening of a natural talent than anything else.) He took his duties as a shinigami seriously and responsibly, and wanted to become better at it to protect everyone. Ichigo isn't power hungry, and at his core (like all shounen heroes....) he's a good person. The captains wouldn't have pooled together their own power to give his back if they didn't seriously think he was a benefit to them more as a shinigami than as a normal human.

Whereas Ginjo probably started being a stupid head badass and plotting with Aizen to overthrow soul society, or some stupid plot twist that is up and coming in a few weeks/months.

It's not that he did something wrong, they just want to keep tabs on him. They probably feel like anyone that powerful should be monitored, just in case. This would only be escalated by the Aizen incident.

And hey, if he gets in trouble or something they'd at least know where he is to help him out.

Inner monologue tells us he wanted a companion, yet a while back he robbed Ichigo of his friends, pride, family and powers and told a shattered Ichigo that he was lucky he let him live. Not to mention he hasn't flinched regarding the death/captivity of practically his entire X-cution group barring Moe and Riruka.

Contradiction

On the bright side, I still like Bleach's art style and the fighting bits are fun enough to watch. I just hope Kubo gets his act together on the story in the near future and give us an interesting backstory on Ginjou and the overall story 'some' purpose again. (Of course not until Ichigo has to get his hollow mask out after nearly dying to Ginjou's hollow powers/mask. Calling it.)

I think he's more looking for someone he considers an equal to him, something I doubt he felt for his former gang members. Combine that with a sadistic twist and I see it making sense imo.

I'm not sure that this fight is going to last all that much longer, nor that Ichigo will be in any serious trouble whatsoever. I mean, the Captains have left the field, I'm not sure about Kenpachi though.

I had to laugh at the line "From the very beginning he never changed." Because it show an assortment of Ichigo images from the past which reminded me of a collage of scenes from the anime and manga showing just how drastically the art has changed.

Sometimes I half suspect Kubo knows he's trolling.

They did get wtfpwned by the double whammy of him charging in and Aizen backstabbing back to back waaaaay back when.

Doesn't make Ginjo any less retarded. I'm not sure I got that right. He mentally raped Ichigo to try to make Ichigo argue with him?

Glad to see this fight isn't going to be drawn out endlessly, and I'm quite interested in seeing the pasts of Tsukishima and Ginjou. Surely there's gotta be something to them.

Possible, but more likely Rukia just trying to save Ichigo. Definitely something she'd do anyway...
