I have a series in which I imagine that various characters have been killed, and then ask Bleach characters to respond. Sometimes it crosses over into real manga events. Sometimes it doesn’t. Regardless, we will now pretend [BLG takes fighting stance] that Rose and Kensei have been killed for good! Everybody, your response?
Shinji: So I’m the only visored captain left in Soul Society?
Shinji: I must avenge my visored comrades!
Aizen: I don’t mean to scare you, Hirako, but you do know that would require winning, right?
Shinji: Shut up, Aizen.
Kira: Wait a second.
Kira: The last time we saw Captains Muguruma and Otoribashi, they were in Kurotsuchi’s care.
Kira: Are we to understand that Kurotsuchi killed them?
Nemu: Why are you always so suspicious of my squad?
Kira: BECAUSE YOUR SQUAD SEEMS TO INVOLVE A SUSPICIOUS AMOUNT OF MURDER
Unohana: *Is* there a scientific explanation for their deaths, Kurotsuchi?
Kurotsuchi: They were dead when I found them.
Kurotsuchi: What am I, a miracle worker?
Ishida: You invented a method of turning yourself into goo to cheat death.
Kurotsuchi: Yeah they should have tried that.
Kyoraku: I’ve noticed that a lot of captains have been dying under my watch.
Kyoraku: I hope it’s not me.
Love: I know I’m the one who says we visored shouldn’t use our masks too much because we’re heroes.
Love: But they should have used their masks.
Love: I just hope Rose got a dramatic final speech. He would have liked that.
Hachigen: Our family is getting smaller.
Hisagi: B-but Captain Muguruma can’t be killed!
Hisagi: He’s so strong!
Hisagi: He’s my hero.
Aizen: Didn’t you kill the last captain you considered your hero?
Shinji: OH MY GOD AIZEN, SHUT UP!
Mashiro: Well, Kensei, it looks like I’m going to be avenging you, this time.
Mashiro: Against all of these Quincy, who were recently and conveniently made totally helpless.
