I can imagine what Christmas time in the Kubo household; he promises a puppy, he even brings home a box that making cute puppy noises, then he leaves the box in the closet for two years before presenting us a box with a puppy skeleton in it.

I forgot to mention poor Inoue this chapter. There was something pretty pathetic about her when she had to point out "I helped too." It's pretty shitty when Kon gets a bigger role than a formerly important character.

And that's another example of Kubo trying to go bigger and better and failing. When Bleach starts out Ichigo is a fairly normal kid with the ability to see spirits. As a shounen protagonist he's special but no so alien that he isn't relatable to the teenage boy demographic reading the manga. After that he gets powers from Rukia but those are borrowed powers and still leaves him pretty grounded from where he's able to get powers of his own. Once again, he's getting stronger, but at heart he's still a normal teenage boy in extraordinary circumstances, still relatable and really ideal since all the normal boys reading could then fantasize for just a bit about having powers like that themselves.

Then things change first it's the Vizard powers, then it's full on hollowfication vasto lorde powers, then the mix with the final Getsugatenshio, then Fullbring and now we know he has parts of all those powers plus quincy powers. He's went from a simple relatable protagonist to this alien being that combines all the major powers in the Bleach universe. At that point he loses all relatability to the reader.

If you think about other Jump protagonists they keep at least a part of that relatable quality. It's an important connection to their audience. When you're rooting for Ichigo you're not even rooting for someone human. It's not impossible to be able to relate to a non-human character, but it takes skillful writing to make them human in other ways. At this point Ichigo's character is never around enough to be humanized nor to does his lineage leave him very much in common with humans.

And it's so convoluted to follow. Casual readers won't be able to follow all of that. It's a clusterfuck of bad ideas.

May I ask why this excites you? I am legitimately interested to know. Are you just happy to seeing the character again? Or do you think he's going to do something?

I thought it would have been funnier if the crotch shot had turned out to be her brother.
