Admittedly, I have a little trouble discerning what exactly is going on in the Bleach battles. Half the panels are closeup shots of the combatants, and the other half are action lines and explosions. I especially couldn’t really tell what happened in the end, but I guess we’ll find out next time. It’s still not really clear what Jackie’s fullbring is either; because her kicks get stronger as her boots get dirtier, I would guess that her shoes are the object that she’s manipulating the soul of. Her clothes change too when she uses her power however, and she refused to reveal her exact fullbring ability to Ichigo. But fullbringers can also manipulate the souls of any object if I recall correctly, and so far I haven’t seen any of that.
Also, what happened to getting back Ichigo’s shinigami powers? Ginjou had explained they needed a person that was both shinigami and human to transfer their powers to, but so far Ichigo has just been training his own fullbring. It’s starting to feel like just another training arc where Ichigo is trying to power up to fight a villain. I would prefer to see more development in the story, but the plot just seems rather discontinuous and I tend to forget what’s happened even just a few weeks ago. Perhaps it’s some consolation that Chad has met with Ginjou again which is a great idea on his part, asking Ginjou directly what Tsukishima’s power was all about. It’s such an obvious move that I didn’t even think about it, but now they should be able to deal with whatever Tsukishima did to Inoue. These fullbringer are normal humans with the added ability to manipulate objects, so Ichigo should be close to even footing against them at least, since they don’t have the hundreds of years of experience and training that shinigami would have.
