Bleach ch. 344

Posted on | February 6, 2009 | No Comments

With the previous chapters building upon a possible transition into hollow-like characteristics for Ichigo, I couldn’t help but notice the current appearance of his mask. There have been subtle changes to its pattern over the course of the manga, a gradual thickening and/or addition of the red streaks to cover a larger area. Perhaps this is indicative of Ichigo’s growing assimilation with his Hollow.

Now that Ishida has cleared the stage of its secondary players, we can finally get on with the main spectacle: Ichigo vs Ulquiorra. Boasting an awesome two-page spread of Vizard Ichigo, no doubt the best visual representation of his hollowification yet, and Ulquiorra spearing through the ceiling of the dome to go resurrecciĆ³n, I can hardly wait for the next chapter.
