Matsumoto: Why I'm the prettiest

As requested by anon. :)

“There’s lots of competition for the title of ‘Hottest Bleach character.’ We are all pretty darn attractive. But I’m just going to say it - I’m the prettiest. And if you don’t believe me (for some reason), here are some very good reasons!”

1. My boobs

“May as well get this one out of the way first, huh? Since I know you perverts are all thinking it! Yes, I have very nice breasts. No, that is an understatement. They are….magnificent. Do you know that these boobs can cause Hisagi to collapse from extreme blood loss in under ten seconds? Yeah.”

2. My hair

“Speaking of my excellent physical features, there is also my hair. I have very nice hair: thick, shiny, wavy. I don’t even have to style it much! I used to just wear it down, and it looked fantastic. Now I have a new haircut, and it still looks fantastic. I could probably gel it into a mohawk, and still make it work. My hair is just that good.”

3. My beauty mark

“I have a beauty mark on the side of my face. Some people might not single that out as one of my best features - it means my face is not completely clear, after all. But I’ve come to like it. I like that my face isn’t perfectly symmetrical, which would be boring. I have a tiny, adorable mole. It makes my beauty more stunning by making it seem less perfect and artificial.”

4. My confidence

“But all of these assets would mean a lot less if I weren’t confident about them! I don’t try to hide the fact that I’m beautiful. I’m not ashamed of it. I am self-assured and self-aware. And if I do say so myself, that in and of itself is sexy!”

5. My fashion sense

“Plus, I have really good fashion sense. You might recall a certain montage during which I tried on a bunch of human world outfits. Every one of which was super adorable! Because I’m just that good. Even working in an unfamiliar medium (human world clothing), I can put together rockin’ outfits that suit me perfectly! I am a fashion goddess.”

6. My willingness to shop

“Equally important is my willingness to shop for the cute clothing I wear so well. No, I’m serious here! I suspect sometimes that my captain is secretly stylish, but he would never pursue that quality. He thinks it’s pointless. But not me! I like clothes and I like looking cute, so I will always make time for that!”

7. My accessorizing

“And it’s not just outfits that I’m good at. When it comes to this shinigami uniform - which, let’s face it, is not the world’s sexiest uniform - I show my ability to accessorize. A nice scarf, a crooked bow….these are the things that can make a boring old uniform slightly less boring!”

8. My overall figure

“Basically, if you just glance at me as a whole, you will be confronted with extreme beauty. I’m tall. I’m shapely. I heave a beautiful face. My skin is clear. My hair glows.”

9. I take care of myself

“Plus, it helps that I take care of myself! Lotion, hair product….and of course plenty of naps! Getting sleep is very important.”

10. The Ichigo Test

“If any of you are still doubting me, I invite you to consider this: Kurosaki Ichigo. He is a dense block of shonen wood when it comes to the ladies. He doesn’t seem to really register their looks all that much. And that’s fine! In fact, I think just two women have gotten a physical reaction from him: Yoruichi, when she popped up totally naked, and me. By lifting my skirt just a little. And if doing just that can penetrate Kurosaki’s denseness………well, then. I’m the prettiest for sure!”
