I sleep way too much. First week only, and I’ve already missed 7 hours worth of lectures. Good thing they’re recorded, so hopefully I’ll have the will power to listen to them over the weekend.
After taking 5 shots – which Grimmjaw demonstrates to be extremely powerful – in the back, Ichigo’s mask cracks, and Grimmjaw begins to dominate the fight. Orihime tells herself that she can’t be afraid, but Vaizard Ichigo reminds her of her brother, and she fears that she has no place in this Ichigo’s heart.
Nell watches as Ichigo gets overpowered by Grimmjaw, and she’s shocked that Vaizard Ichigo could be losing, as he had previously overpowered both Ulqiorra and the Hundred. Nell cheers for Ichigo, and urges Orihime to do the same. Orihime is momentarily taken aback, and Nell asks her “Why are you scared of Ichigo?” The Ichigo who is only human, but takes on the roles of a Shinigami and Vaizard, so that he can protect others. The Ichigo who braves Hueco Mundo to save Orihime, who battles until his body is covered with scars, so that he can protect those dear to him. “Why are you scared of him? How can you not cheer him on?”
Orihime realises that Ichigo is in Hueco Mundo for the same reason that she is – so that they can protect others who can’t protect themselves. Orihime realises that her fear is unfounded, and she cheers for Ichigo. “Don’t die!” She says, “It doesn’t matter if you lose, it doesn’t matter if you don’t try so hard. So please… don’t get hurt anymore.”
Upon hearing this, Ichigo becomes filled with power and strikes back at Grimmjaw.
“No Ichigo you can’t die!” “You heard the lady.” *OMNISLASH BITCH*
What more can I say?
Oh and the brother thing. Completely slipped my mind until now. It must be shocking for her to see two of her most precious persons become hollows. Duly noted.
Both Sasuke and Deidara are on the verge of collapse, having used up most of their chakra in the battle. They both collapse on the ground, unable to move, but Sasuke’s gaze remains unwavering in the face of possible defeat. Deidara hates that gaze, the unwavering, confident gaze of the sharingan, and how, despite the fierce battle that just took place, Sasuke doesn’t seem to care about anything other than getting information on Itachi. Deidara despises the Sharingan, and how the Uchiha brothers don’t care at all about his “art”. He decides to show off his ultimate art, a true suicide bomb, an explosion that has never been seen, one that will leave a rift in the land, and one that will gain his art unrivaled praise. He silently apologises to someone, and an explosion 10 kilometres in radius blasts up and outwards from where Deidara’s heart used to be.
Talk talk talk *KABOOM*. Deidara’s vendatta against the sharingan is perhaps understandable. As a self-proclaimed artist, it must feel terrible to have his art completely overlooked.
One Piece 463
Luffy fights against Moria, but finds it difficult to get past his indefeatible shadow puppet.
Sanji arrives at the church and rescues Nami, but starts performing manzai with Absalom. Absalom underestimates Sanji, thinking that, as someone who was only given an animal zombie body, he can’t be too strong, but is quickly proven wrong as Sanji sends him flying with a kick. Sanji repeatedly attacks Absalom in his anger over how Absalom treated Nami and Robin on the Thousand Sunny. Additionally, it seems there’s some sort of old grudge between two.
This arc of One Piece, at least as far as I’ve seen, feels a little different from previous arcs. Despite the fact that they’re fighting one of the Shichibukai and his subordinates, the mood is so light and the humour so ubiqutious that there is no tension at all. I’m getting the feeling that this arc is going to really highlight how strong the Straw Hats have become, as they walk all over Moria’s ship.
And damn, is Sanji kicking (literally) ass.
