TV Tokyo (ended 2012)
|So, let's see.... Masaki is going to end up getting disowned or something, and eventually fall in love with Isshin, which will make Ryuuken angry/jealous/anotheremotion. I hope we get to see the ramifications of Isshin's decision, and whether or not it will be considered a desertion, or if Isshin will just be considered missing in action. Either way, that would explain why he took Masaki's last name, so as not to be discovered for whatever reason. |
Something to ponder: how much does Masaki know (or how much will she know) about how she was saved? Will she find out that Isshin can't use his Shinigami powers as long as she's alive, and if she does know that, does she allow Grand Fisher to kill her rather than defend herself so that Isshin can be restored? Or does her partial hollowfication corrupt her Quincy abilities, preventing her from defending herself?
|Sometimes I wish the chapters were released 2 at a time, especially with lackluster chapters such as this. Interesting information was given though: Isshin has been in the real world for 20 years or so. |
Hmm... I'm curious and a little worried by the upcoming chapter. It's like going back and saying that Ichigo beat Byakuya... because Byakuya had a cold and was limited in his fighting ability... don't mess with key facts just for shock value.
I don't think it will be just for shock value. Ichigo was 8 at the time of masaki's death, and all we know about her death is that she was killed by grand fisher, and we know that because of his bait... but remember we only got glimpses of her just prior to and immeditely after her death and all from an 8 year old boys perspective (and kids tend to warp facts in their mind or even block traumatic events so as to cope with them ).. So it might well be a revelation of how she actually got attacked and/or why was she attacked... Putting aside Ichigo's sense of guilt, he might not be the reason why Masaki was killed (even by proxy) and I know that Ichigo saw the bait and ran to save it, but it was never stated that the bait was for Ichigo and not for Masaki.. Maybe there was an ulterior motive (maybe bach(everyone is forgetting about him it seems) or Aizen orchestrated the attack)
I'm actually going to feel very cheated if it is revealed that Bach is behind her death. No offense but if he turns out to be just like Aizen I might seriously just wait for the story to end before picking it up again. Aizen, for all his great build up, feels more like a let down in the end. Granted he isn't dead so he could return to glory but overall his story felt empty in the end. I don't want another Aizen, criminal master-mind who is manipulating everything. Just give us a super-powerful enemy that is well informed on our heroes and able to defeat most of them handily. It's great that he has some personal history (Yama-ji) but don't make him that master manipulator that Aizen was. Got one, don't need to overplay it with 2, ya know?
Speaking of things, I'm going to a bit upset too if it turns out that Ichigo's hollow struck out and killed Masaki. It would make sense but that's a little too much don't you think? If his fragile state of being isn't broken it should be after learning that. I'm obviously leaning towards Hollow Ichigo striking out to the presence of the Grand Fisher (ie. imminent death) where as Ichigo wasn't in immediate death with Rukia arriving on scene to start the series.
