The bad news is that apparently shinigami have cells (and optic nerves) even though there is literally no reason for them to have these things because THEY ARE DEAD CREATURES WITHOUT PHYSICAL BODIES
The good news is that all of those smutty doujinshi and fics featuring Seireitei dwellers are now totally canon-plausible because being dead is just like being alive in a way.
You mean to tell me that all of my training was literally for nothing and my super move totally does not work against you?
Rukia, you are ignoring the fact that you are a Bleach character, which basically means that no matter how much you struggle and grow as a person, you are basically fucked until it is time for a magnificent ass-pull.
ALL YOUR NERVE ARE BELONG TO ÄS
The lower left corner should put to bed any and all claims of Rukia seeing Inoue as just a rival in the quest for Ichigo's D plzkthx like even Renji (presumably) is COVERED UP BY A SPEECH BUBBLE whereas we see Inoue's face clearly (even though the eyes are freaky, but everyone's are). These are the important people in Rukia's life, people for whom she cares and whose distress she fears.
Byakuya is her brother, Renji is her best gay friend with designs on Rukia's brother, Ichigo is her second best gay friend with designs on the future Quincy king, ergo Rukia and Inoue are married, obviously; bye. :DDDDDD
oh you didn't think this motherfucker was creepy enough, did you?
let's gouge out the eyes add a spiky halo and add some more DISEMBODIED EYES all around
A powered up Byakuya appears!!!!!!
DOES THIS MEAN BYA/REN DIALOGUE IN THE NEAR FUTURE????? 8D
But anyway, you know, it would have been nice if Kubo changed up the script for once and NOT had the female character rescued by a male character (and this time before she even really needed rescuing? like she was just temporarily incapacitated, come on), but I guess once you start phoning it in, you're phoning it in all the way. :\ [I mean, it's kind of possible Rukia is going to be like "no brother you shouldn't have interfered, I had this yo" but it would be highly out of character unless she spins it like "oh, you shouldn't have bestirred yourself for the likes of me against a weakling like this" or something.]
