Image-heavy chapter, light on text, but between this one and the last, Ichimaru Gin just became even more interesting than he used to be. :O
So Ichigo understands Aizen's power -- what is that supposed to mean! Is Gin obliquely referring to what Isshin had said a few pages before about only people "standing in the same place" as Aizen being able to read his reiatsu?
AT ANY RATE, THIS IS SO PRETTY.
BUT UGH HE BETTER JUST BE UNCONSCIOUS. T_T *shakes fist*
So... then Aizen asks Gin what he was doing to Ichigo just then, and Gin says he was just testing his strength. Um, guys, do you think maybe Gin is actually working for the Gotei 13? Were his words to Ichigo meant to awaken Ichigo to some fact -- and perhaps when they didn't work, Gin decided it'd be better to get rid of Ichigo because he doesn't meet some kind of condition for defeating Aizen? AHH I DON'T KNOW. But I am really curious why Aizen seems suspicious here, and what his plan is for Ichigo. Other than, um. Eating. >.>
Aizen has emerged from the weird-shaped incubation thingy to become... even prettier than he was before. I am telling you, there has to be some truth to the whole Hueco Mundo spa tinhat meme, because SERIOUSLY LOOK AT HIM.
Hmm, I didn't realise Ichigo was able to open senkaimon by himself. Doesn't he need a hell butterfly for that?
At any rate, this:
KAS;DLJKAFSDJKL;FKJL;ASDJFK;LASKJ;L OMG TOGETHER THEY FIGHT CRIME. HOW ADORABLE SRSLY OMFG. *_* Also, I guess Matsumoto is going to join these two? Or is she already waiting in Soul Society for Gin? WHAT IF MATSUMOTO HAS BEEN ON AIZEN'S SIDE ALL ALONG. >.>
ALSO ALSO KUBO DID NOT EXPLAIN ISSHIN'S GETSUGA WHYYYY *flails*
...but there are only what, 4-5 more chapters to go in this arc (at least according to the whole thing where Kubo supposedly said this arc was wrapping up in June)? SO EXCITED.
