Bleach Characters as Tumblr Memes
As requested by anon. :)
I love meme lists. So here is the ultimate (?) meme list! Which actual memes are Bleach characters?
1. The “Surprise bitch” meme: Aizen
This is a meme about someone who you think is dead and gone, but then that person shows up in dramatic and snarky fashion. Or, in the case of Aizen, somebody you thought was in prison, who then just keeps showing up.
Aizen: Although it should not have been a surprise, since I planned this all along. From the day that I…
Ichigo: EVERYBODY GET DOWN - HE’S ABOUT TO MONOLOGUE!!
2. The “Quit telling everyone I’m dead” meme: Grimmjow
This is similar to the last meme, only instead of the presumed dead person being cool and in charge, this presumed dead-person just shouts off-stage that he’s not actually dead. That sounds like Grimmjow to me.
Ichigo: And in the end, he fought alongside us. That is why it is so sad that we lost him.
Grimmjow: QUIT TELLING EVERYONE I’M DEAD
Ichigo: Sometimes I can still hear his voice.
3. “Dat boi” meme: Orihime
Okay, full confession: I don’t understand the “dat boi” meme. It’s just a unicycling frog, right? And then people write “here comes dat boi” “oh shit whaddup.” I even looked it up. And that is the only explanation I got. Why does this frog ride a unicycle? Where is he going? I don’t get it at all. So anyway, then I was wondering - who in Bleach likes absurdist humor that other people don’t understand? And that would be Orihime, of course.
Tatsuki: So…the unicycling frog is fighting the giant robot?
Orihime: They’re on the same side!
Tatsuki: Of course. That makes way more sense.
Orihime: I know!
4. “Bode”: Yoruichi
This is another absurdist meme. You post pictures of cats with the word “bode” written over the cat. It apparently came to someone in a dream. This one is good for Yoruichi because (a) cats and (b) it messes with people.
Ichigo: WHY DOES SHE KEEP SENDING ME THESE PHOTOS??
Ichigo: I DON’T UNDERSTAND
Ichigo: WHAT DOES THAT MEAN???
5. The “lost in a crowd” meme: Hitsugaya
This one is all about losing someone in a crowd and then shouting something significant to find them. Hitsugaya is short, and hence prone to lose people in crowds. Plus, he’s really good at shouting.
Hitsugaya: Hey! I’m an adult now sometimes!
Rukia: Wait…you’re an adult now?
Matsumoto: There she is!
Hitsugaya: THAT’S NOT EVEN HOW THIS MEME WORKS
6. The self-care meme: Kira
This is a meme where you define self-care as something impossible and/or ridiculous (self-care is tying balloons to your eyebrows and then going through a car wash). That feels Kira-like to me.
Kira: Self-care is drinking sake until you cry.
Hisagi: That’s less a hilarious meme and more a cry for help, dude.
Kira: That line is so hard to navigate.
7.The “you tried” gold star: Mask de Masculine
‘Cause he gave one to Rose, remember? With that star-shaped wound right through Rose’s torso?
Rose: …that’s not funny.
Mask: I think it’s pretty funny.
8. The “15 minutes late with Starbucks” meme: Unohana
I’m not saying Squad 4 is often late with the healing…but Squad 4 is often late with the healing. And if anyone’s gonna stroll in fifteen minutes late with Starbucks, it’s Unohana. Nor will anyone say anything.
Unohana: I am here.
Shinji: That’s cool but most of us are already dead.
Unohana: Good thing I only brought one cup.
9. The “color of the sky” meme: Yhwach
The original “color of the sky” post was Aizen: sure the pictures are cool or whatever, but it’s too long. Way WAY WAY too long. Much like Aizen’s monologues. Then the meme came along, where you take the “color of the sky” post, truncate it, and had some sort of surprise at the end. And sure there’s relief that it doesn’t go on for so long, but it’s also not as cool as the original. Kinda reminds me of Yhwach, for some reason. *coughs*
Yhwach: Sometimes I just don’t feel appreciated.
10. The “shoving breadsticks in purse” meme: Riruka
You’re on a date. The date says something bad. You shove breadsticks in your purse as you leave the restaurant. So this meme goes. It sounded kinda like Riruka to me.
Riruka: So what’s more important - being cute or something else?
Date: Uh…something else?
Riruka: [shoving breadsticks angrily into her purse] I have to go
11. The “hoe don’t do it” meme: Ishida and Ichigo
For the first part of Bleach, it was always Ishida saying “Hoe don’t do it” and Ichigo doing it. Then at the end, it switched and Ishida was the one doing things while Ichigo said “Hoe don’t do it.” Symmetry. It’s what makes Bleach what it is.
Ichigo: And that’s why we’re basically the same person.
Ishida: Oh god no.
12. The “looks at smudged writing on hand” meme: Ichigo
Not because he doesn’t care. He’s just…really bad at names.
Ichigo: Wow! Great job helping defeat the Quincy, Inoue, Chad, and…
Ichigo: [looks at smudged writing on hand]
Ichigo: Ugly Itching?
Ishida: YOU KNOW WHAT MY NAME IS
14. The “snail” meme: Chad
Wherein you take various words and replace the first consonant with “sn” to create a snail version. Snurch = snail church, snall = snail mall, etc. I feel like Chad would be on board with this mostly because he respects snail culture, as he respects all animals.
Chad: And this is the “snouse” (snail house) I built for my new “snuddies” (snail buddies) with their “snard” (snail yard) and their “snailbox” (mailbox).
15. “Bitch, where?” meme: Charlotte
This is a meme about someone calling you ugly, and you responding, “Bitch, where?” That sounds like Charolotte to me.
Charlotte: And that shinigami was all, “You ugly” and I was all, “Bitch, where?”
Yumichika: You’re ugly under the makeup too, though.
Charlotte: Bitch, where?
Yumichika: …I walked right into that one.
16. Kinkshaming meme: Kensei
I just feel like Kensei must spend a lot of time kinkshaming his fellow visored.
Shinji: I love being upside down!
Love: Personally I think nothing can top being a superhero.
Rose: Unless it’s a long, deep talk with your guitar.
Hiyori: Whatever. As if that’s as good as hitting people in the face with your shoes.
Mashiro: I prefer hitting them in the face with a super kick!
Lisa: Or ignoring them because you are too busy reading porn.
Kensei: …I’m gonna have to kinkshame you all.
