Week 13! Friday the 13th is this week as well... totally didn't plan that.
No One Piece this week, which honestly probably gives one of the others a chance to catch up a little. I think these comics have been in a bit of a dry spell though. Not that the stories are bad; I'm enjoying them and all. Just nothing has put me on the edge of my seat that much these last couple of weeks.
Also, if I remember to read it, we see what the hell Link was up to in D.Gray-man next week.
Don't forget... SPOILERS!!!!!
This week's all about the Ucha Lucha's again. Kabuto uses his silver tongue to try and sway Sasuke to his side. It doesn't really work, and there's a neat little flashback about the world after Itachi died. Then we get a little more history of Kabuto. A bit more talking and then some action is about to commence. Kabuto shields his eyes, and Itachi asks Sasuke to remember Izanagi. For those of you who didn't remember, that's the one that blurs reality and illusions... not that it worked for Danzo all that much in the end. But Itachi's not going to use that. He's going to use something better! Izanami! Oh Lord...
While Urahara's apparently joking about creeping around the Kurosaki household, I just can't bring myself to believe him. So they're off to Hueco Mundo. They land right in the middle of the hollow version of Nazi Germany. No seriously, they talk of camps and whatnot. Ichigo already decides he's had enough and he's going to go save what he can of what was once his enemy, because that's just the kind of guy he is. The rest of the Superheroes follow. We then find some of these Vandenreich soldiers (more German stuff, if you remember), lining up Arrancars to fill them with holes essentially. Two of them decide to fight back, and they are none other than Loly and Menoly, Aizen's personal lolicons! Loly and Menoly must only exist to get jakked up. Anyone remember Fluffy and Uranus from Duckman? Well that happens, but they are ordered not to be killed, since they fought back and passed the "test". Then suddenly a chakram comes flying at the soldier, and who else could it be? Well it seems that Halibel's Fracción wants a piece of the action as well.
A nice little summary of who we've lost starts this chapter. Very helpful if you haven't been paying attention. And with about 30 seconds of rest, the Vindice are back for Team Mammon... threefold even! Team Verde and Team Reborn meet up in the park, words are exchanged and then more Vindice appear to spoil the party. Verde proposes an alliance, but Mukuro ain't having it. Then the Vindice attack with full force. Also since Flan's asleep Mukuro and Tsuna decide to team up (that was quick), in a pose that I could just describe as ready to kick some ass.
And the Winner:
Bleach was alright overall, but I'll give it to Reborn! this week. All for the pose and changing of minds at the drop of a dime like a woman at the end.
