Before I start, this is quite the 2nd time since I started this blog that I got so much readers in a day. And wow, from 4 different countries.
And oh, this isn’t meant to be a joke, rest of the time I get zero readers or just ONE person from the US, which is 99.9% accurate to be Chu.
So, drop me a comment to let me know how you got here! ❤
The comment button is in Katakana under each title.
Ok, so~! The whole time I had nothing positive towards the Espadas, nor anyone on Aizen’s side. I even thought that Momo and Kira are being insane to feel for their captains although it is only normal that these youths (in Shinigami context) felt that way.
The only exception is however Gin.
Maybe in the end I would agree with Chu that he is shit from beginning to end, but as for now…
I had thought that Tosen was one big self-righteous ass until the end. Aizen blasting him into bits before he can take a good look at Captain Komamura and (my) Hisagi really made me sad. Also, why is Cap. Komamura a bear fox?!
And I get that other than Ichigo, Aizen had pretty much hypnotised everyone, so the irrationality of his followers is somewhat justifiable. If not, he played such mind-games on them, they are totally being manipulated; explaining why so many Espadas turned mad at Aizen moments before they died.
But hey, as much as it is so, I still think they are responsible for themselves to a degree.
First up, all these while I was waiting for the Shinigami to kick the asses of the Arrancars. Like yeah, they are so pitiful.
Until it came to Coyote Starrk.
Apparently he was so alone, his soul split up another little girl (Lilynette Gingerbuck) so that they two can keep each other companied. And towards the end, Starrk is no longer clear if it was Lilynette that split out of him or he came out from Lilynette.
He too felt the pinch when his fellow Espada dies because… HE HAD TRULY FELT THAT WITH THEM HE IS NOT ALONE.
Homg. This alone really gave him much redemption, in the sense that he joined Aizen’s army really bcoz he wanted to be with others, but is righteous enough to not go inflict too damages according to Aizen’s whims. Seen when he battles Captain Shunsui.
And wait! If Captain Ukitake is so weak as to wield his swords, HOW DID HE BECAME A CAPTAIN?!
Another Espada I felt for is Tier Harribel and the ladies with her.
I don’t agree with everything she does but it seemed reasonable on her part to gather a few BFFs, look after each other and to kill as little as possible. Joining Aizen gave her better power to survive and yes she still fights but for a cause, Aizen’s cause, and no longer like how she had to look out for her life while wandering around.
The whole thing with Starrk and Harribel is, yeah, they kinda had no better choices like other Espadas, they did less than nice things, but from my opinion what set them apart is, at the end, they managed and chose to retained their own consciousness.
Also, I think Harribel’s battle outfit is pretty hot.
I missed gym again today and push back my class.
Can’t wait for Monday!! ❤
