Well people here it is: the beginning of the end of this series. See RockmanDash got out when he did because he knew this is where everything changes with our main hero dead, and time for a certain someone to finally step up. It's an epic character driven yet action packed tale with the development we've been waiting years to see as well as a status quo change no one saw coming. That's what we were promised from last time people and I think that Tite Kubo can deliever on that since hey it's not like this is a big negative turning point in the arc that got people to really start pouring hate down the series more then before right? No this is some powerful stuff so let me share with you what that power is. Opening 12:Change http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5CItnHJb_4&feature=related Ending 23:Stay Beautiful LAST TIME: Ichigo: Huh that attack hurt but... I can still take you- Ulquoirra: It's no use! (Attacks Ichigo) Orihime: Oh no Ichigo's in trouble. We have to go see him Uryu. Uryu: That seems like a very BAD idea. Don't you think we'd be in the way? Orihime: No I'm sure we'll be fine. (Stars nearly suffoicating on Ulqouirra's spirtula pressure). Uryu: I really need to get over the notion of ever listening to her. (Back at the battle). Ichigo: Well that really hurt, but I'm going to win because I'm Ichigo and I'm stronger then you- Ulqouirra: It's not use! (Attacks him with a black cero). Ichigo: Oh the super powerful release form cero. Hey wait how come none of the other Espada used that when they released? Or that Gran Ray Cero that Grimmjow used thinking about it. If those are suppose to be so powerful- Ulqouirra: It's no use! (slams him to the ground). Ichigo: Ha shows what you know. I knew you were stronger then me from the start of this battle, but I have to win so eventually I'll be stronger then you just by sheer attrition! (Ulqouira stares at him) ... Okay remember how in Star Wars when Vader killed Obi-Wan, Obi said "If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine" right? I think that means if you kill a hero they'll come back ten times greater. That happened there right? I didn't see the other two movies, or is that six now- Ulqouirra: It's no use! (Transforms into his second release form). Ichigo: Well that's... disconfronting. (Blinks) Wait a minute super emo Batman you said you were the FOURTH strongest of the Espada, but if you're the only one with a super second form that means you aren't the fourth stongest if they can't do that, thus technically you were totally lying before. Either that or it's some kind of plot hole, but no way we'd have that in this series right- Ulqouirra: It's no use! (Slams him into a pillar). Ichigo: Ow, that really hurt. But I'm not fighting cause I want to win, but because I need to win, thus I'm going to win because that's how that works- Ulqouirra: It's not use! (Sticks a hand through his chest). Orihime: Wait, don't kill Ichigo. Ulqouirra: It's no use! Orihime: So... was that a yes or a no- (Super Black Ceros through Ichigo's chest). Uryu; Oh, guess that would make this a noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. (Sees Orihime in trauma) Oh, sorry, not the right time for that. Tonght: The main hero of our story Ichigo Kurosaki is dead. The Espada Ulquoirra Schiffer ultimatley offed him and now seems poised to take down the rest of the young Ex-Subsuiste Soul Reaper's friends. He didn't count on one thing though: The Passion and drive of the woman who loved Ichigo with all of her heart. Orihime's been through physical, mental and spirtual torture over this entire story arc, wanting to prove herself and not show she's a burden. Ultmatley her effors have proven fruitless, and now Ichigo's death reigns on her concscience. But it's not all doom and gloom as remember, Orhimie has the power to manipulate space-time. She couldn't access it properly before but this final push by the henious Ulqouirra will give her all the right motivaion to showcase her powers and show everyone what's she made of. But will even that be enogh to take on th insidious Arrancar? I don't know but it's bound to be a powerful, emotional and tense battle that will cultimate the story arc of her character that's been built up for years. I mean, what other option would there be to continue this series? And now for the Espada Information Chart. Updated and created by yours truly, this details all the up to date info on what the Espada are currently going through in the storyline.
