Re: Bleach (Manga) 577: Spoiler I really have to question the purpose of making Bach look like a fool over and over again. Okay, maybe he's intentionally giving his Strenritter bad matchups so when they die they return to him and if they get lucky enough to win then he gets the Soul Reaper's power since he touched everyone or some bullshit, but letting Gemmy run loose? Someone that can destroy everything on a whim is fucking senseless and some explanation that Gemmy's powers aren't that strong at this point would make Kenpachi look weak for struggling against him enough to need to use his really big and silly looking shikai. I'm not sure Bach thinks having a bunch of wild egos with destructive superpowers run around uncontrolled is a good idea, he could have just kept the powers and killed the soul reapers himself. I was never particularly excited for Kenpachi's sword release, because it goes against what the character stands for and no release beyond a complete asspull would be all that interesting for him. So he does his Nozarashi and his sword gets bigger and eats the meteor or something. I might have been a bit clearer on this if the chapter hadn't wasted time and pages with everyone's reaction shots about how crazy Gemmy is. Overall, Gemmy is lame and this fight is lame. It's a really underwhelming return for Kenpachi, not that I was expecting much after what happened to him before.
