anti ichihime i guess

I guess being a canon couple in Bleach isn’t enough! I guess getting what you always wanted (Ichihime) isn’t enough either! No, it’s the mere freaking entitlement you think you need to keep harassing Ichiruki fandom. We aren’t bothering you so please stay in your lane. We don’t need or want your validation nor will we ever give it.

Bleach 681

Okay, first of, I just wanna say: 
It was so GOOD. 

I dunno why some fans are so pissed of or disappointed. I mean, they’re all angry that things are rushed when last week they were all saying that there were only 5 chapters left - lmao, what did you expect? Another good 3 chapters of talking about their feels? Kubo don’t have time for that and y’all knew it. 

I mean, for a very rushed chapter, I have to say Kubo wrapped it up very nicely. In just one chapter, he showed some good things.

I have to admit, last week, I thought Rukia would head over to Ichigo. Which I, will openly admit, feared. I am a IchiHime shipper and I tend to get very insecure. Then, this chapter happened and damn… I’ve felt rush of great affection for my babes and great deal of disappointed in myself. Because, I claimed that I loved RukiHime then… I - I just plainly tugged down on Rukia’s character and - Wow, Kubo just straight slapped me and the shippers in the face. Because, how could I, how dare I doubt Kubo. I was no better than the crazy IR fans - I was blinded by ships and this single chapter just slapped so much sense into me. 

When I saw Rukia beside Orihime, I realized… I remembered that Orihime and Rukia are wonderful friends. Rukia mainly hangs out with guys and Orihime is one of the few girl friends she got and I just really love how she treasures Orihime dearly. 

I remembered Orihime is dear to Rukia just like her other friends. 

I remembered Orihime is not less important to Rukia than Ichigo. 

I remembered Orihime is an important dear friend to Rukia.

And you know what that is? That is canon.

Also, there are people who are angry at Orihime??? Like, now Antis are just bashing her because she’s there or smth? Because she didn’t do anything to damage your damn ship??? 

And speaking of ships, many IRs who hate Orihime are really angry, eh? Suddenly, it’s OOC for Rukia to be beside Orihime and not beside Ichigo. Rukia is suddenly OOC to be worried about her friend. Lmao, like, whut. Rukia apparently should be only worried about Ichigo and nobody else. [inserts sarcasm]

Like, it’s a very bad, illogical chapter because IR’s reunion did not happen… I am not applying every IR - There are just certain amount of people who only read BLEACH because of IR. [ I know many IRs who I actually respect. ]

Also, I saw someone bash Orihime for admitting she cannot heal the sword, saying her words are making things worse. Whut? Lol, her words didn’t do shit. Orihime apologizing did not worsen the situation or whatsoever. Ichigo knows her ability was futile. He did not even goddamn react to her apology. And suddenly, IRs who ignored Renji because they were awaiting for IR reunion is suddenly cheering for him because he interrupted Orihime. Pfff, what, suddenly your eyes see him? 

And, people saying Rukia being pessimistic is OOC - HAHAHAHAHA Whut. Are you sure you people understand her character? Rukia was never optimistic nor she is pessimistic. Her view of point is merely realistic. She is appalled, astonished by Yhwach’s ability and knows things are bad. Renji, on the other hand, tries to be optimistic and tries to lift Ichigo’s hope - quite literally, haha. He is, like Ichigo, tends to charge without a plan. Renji is not viewing things like the others because he thinks things can be fixed. You know why? Rukia and Renji have not physically and emotionally experienced Yhwach power, while Orihime and Ichigo did. That is why Renji tries to handle the situation like it’s rather simple. 

Speaking of Renji - I am also glad it was Renji who tried to lift Ichigo. It could’ve been Rukia - But it wasn’t. Because, why it should be Rukia? Why NOT Renji? Because he’s still important, he’s still a friend of them, he’s still in the crew. Stop plainly ignoring him just to justify your damn ship. 

THEN TSUKISHIMA. I must say, I was very surprised. But, I was pleased. It was rushed, yes, Ichigo quickly obtaining the power he lost in such horrible way is rather ridiculous. But, Kubo is told to wrap up, so, yeah this was to be expected tbh. 

But, Tsukishima appearing is logical - I don’t know why people think it came out of nowhere. We all knew they were alive and we all knew Tsukishima’s ability. 

Read here for his and Orihime’s ability and how it worked.

ALSO, I want to say to Anti and Pro Orihime: It was not only Tsukishima’s nor Orihime’s work. Antis are claiming Orihime barely did a thing, while Pros are saying Orihime did the main work. Both are wrong. They did the work with together, 50% - 50%. It’s very simple - If Tsukishima wasn’t there, Orihime, herself, admitted that she could not fix his sword. While, if Orihime wasn’t there, Tsukishima’s ability alone cannot fix the sword as well. 

AND, I am pleased Kubo did not do the ‘Friendship is Magic’ thing. That would’ve been a real asspull. Like, just because friends are there, doesn’t just boost their power. That was realistic. Tsukishima arriving and fixing things with his ability (+Orihime) was realistic and logical.

All in all, I was very pleased by this. C: 

Bleach has ended.

Welp, that’s the end. Bleach finally ended after 15 years.

I just want to say that Bleach was the first anime that I ever watched. I have been a fan for 8 years and it’s what got me into anime in the first place. I was immediately drawn to the idea, the story line, and the interesting characters.

Three years ago I stopped following Bleach as much as I did because it started to go down hill. The constant fillers, random ass extra characters, the pointless fights. The show that I loved had turned into some generic fighting anime and frankly, I grew bored with it. Bleach’s ratings continued to plummet for years, and I think that’s why SJ told Kubo to wrap up the manga (since the anime had already been discontinued) so the ending was rushed.

I don’t understand how he could end a fight with some all powerful villian, who took like 10+ chapters to even weaken, and defeat him in one rushed chapter with a 10 year time skip on top of that? Like…What?

But the final nail in the coffin for Bleach was the PAIRINGS.

I know that Bleach wasn’t a romantic anime. But you want to know what annoys me? The fact that Kubo used romance to pull in his audience because lets be honest, probably more than half of Bleach fans were only still following it to see if either IchiRuki or IchiHime became canon. I’m annoyed that he constantly dangled the prospect of IchiRuki having a chance, providing us with MULTIPLE scenes, color spreads and even a MOVIE dedicated to their relationship. The fact that Ichigo spent an entire arc moping about because he missed Rukia, how these two are literally bound at the SOUL and have an unbreakable bond. How Rukia basically changed his world and gave him the power to achieve what he wanted the most; the ability to protect the people he cared about.

Why hint all of that only for Ichigo to end up with a girl that he hardly EVER interacts with?? I don’t understand. Tbh, I wouldn’t be annoyed with this if Kubo had at least developed Ichigo’s relationship with Orihime. What trips me out is that even in the final chapter Ichigo STILLS PAYS MORE ATTENTION TO RUKIA THAN ORIHIME?? And Rukia STILL PAYS MORE ATTENTION TO ICHIGO THAN RENJI?

RenRuki and IchiHime were not even developed, it was like Kubo just made a last minute decision.

But you know what? I’m not angry. Just…disappointed? Perhaps if this were 3 years ago I would have been pissed. It’s just that IchiRuki had so much potential and made so much more sense. (especially with Ichigo’s dad being a shinigami and his mom being a human/quincy.) It would have made sense for the story to come full circle with Ichigo (Human) and Rukia (Shinigami) being together?

But hey, those are my thoughts on Bleach ending. Such a good show did not deserve these past 3 years of bad story telling and a rushed ending with such unpopular ships. That is my opinion, you don’t have to agree. I’m glad Bleach is over though. It was fun while it lasted I guess.

Antis can hate IchiHime all they want, lmao, who the hell cares.

But are they seriously gonna compare IchiHime with Trump? They too deep into that fandom. It’s time to leave or take a break and stand up to your country and world. Not being salty over a fictional ship and compare it to someone like that while mourning. They need a life.
