Oh ugh, the coloured version of Tōsen is even more revolting than the black-and-white one.
BUT OMG ICHIGO MAKES UP FOR IT:
Shinji's release? I squealed. There's an actual reason he likes hanging upside down. :DD Though I am kind of confused why Shinji said "doesn't it have a nice scent" -- this may be a translation issue; like, maybe that's just a Japanese saying for "nice, isn't it?", hmm.
Also, um, Aizen's a little bit early to gloat. Shinji hasn't gone bankai yet (he's a captain!) and he's not wearing his mask. >.> Which means he was able to score a hit on Aizen in shikai -- even Ichigo couldn't do that back at the end of the SS arc.
THIS HAS NOT HAPPENED BEFORE, EVER:
THEREFORE SHINJI IS AWESOME.
Hisagi and Komamura, you are way too good to Tōsen. >:(
Also, Tōsen thinks Hisagi is hot:
...and apparently Aizen does too, because I think he just exploded Tōsen for trying to touch Hisagi. I know, I know -- not really, but it would have been funny. Wow, Aizen doesn't fuck around.
ICHIGO YAY ICHIGO IS BACK :D But now we have to wait so long. 3 weeks -- that's almost a month! #ihatetheholidays >.>
