So much for everything I said last week – I guess it won’t be such an easy path for Ichigo to go save everyone after all. I mean, I have confidence that he, Byakuya, and Zaraki can take down Yammy eventually, but it’s probably going to take longer than expected, and even after that, it looks like Ichigo is going to have some problems bringing back his new mask and SSJ3 powers. All of which means that this’ll drag on for a while longer and that Ichigo is in no shape to face Aizen yet. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if he had to take another trip inside of himself to face his Hollow side again before this is all over. On the plus side, Byakuya and Zaraki (who I noticed has his eyepatch back on) made a nice entry, and the two form an amusing duo that theoretically should be able to kick a lot of ass – whether they actually will or not remains to be seen. And, as the title of this post implies, I liked the Halloween-themed color spread, so this wasn’t a total waste.
