It was so epic–the fight, the revelations, and the end.
Isshin had previously lost his powers and only recently did his powers return. It can be assumed that he had at some point used the ‘Final Getsugatensho’ and became Getsuga. I really didn’t expect for Ichigo to use the technique and as a result lose his shinigami powers. I guess this opens up the path for a new story to begin. There was also that one thing that Aizen talked about– the Soul King. During that exchange of dialougue between Aizen and Urahara about the Soul King, for a moment, I felt that Aizen may have been doing something good but just didn’t approach it with the right methods.
I want to talk about Aizen’s defeat really quick. I feel everything that has happened before used to lead up to this final moment of Aizen’s sealing had been dragged out too long or that his defeat was just too quick. I expected for him to last a while longer and not be defeated in just an episode. Besides, it just didn’t really feel right to have him defeated because he was sealed. It’s kind of lame to me. Aizen’s slowly lost his composure and started talking a lot more than usual. Before, he just looked calm, cool, and conserved. During his fight with Ichigo, he just completely lost it and let his emotions free. Not saying it’s bad but just different from his usual self. –Hold on, if he’s sealed, there’s a chance for him to be unsealed in the future, right? I hope this is the end of Aizen… The show’s focused so much on Aizen that I’m kind of sick and tired of seeing him even if he was fun to watch when he gets all dramatic– melodramatic.
At first, seeing the final form, I was just speechless and overwhelmed with awe but then I became a bit sad because it meant that he was going to lose his shinigami powers. His powers take part in making him who he is and for his powers to disappear, it’s as if a part of him is taken away. It was also sad how all Tensa Zangetsu wanted was to protect Ichigo and not being able to do so because he would disappear or die… Does that mean that the Hollow Ichigo and Tensa Zangetsu die? Do they not exist when Ichigo loses his powers?
A question.. Before transforming and using the final form, he had his sword wrapped around his arm. Is there a special meaning to that? I’m thinking that it was there to allude to the fact that he was going to become one with his zanpakutou.
One more thing– The BGM was just amazing, greatly amplified the scene, emotions, rush of adrenalin, and the situation.
OMGGG, Ichigo looks so damn cool in his final form. Seriously, right when I saw it, I kept thinking ‘DAAMMNNN, he looks so good. *_*’ Lol, the same thought I had last week. I wouldn’t mind if he stayed in his final form forever because that’s how much I like it.
Well, I should go to bed now but… I still so excited, I don’t know if I’ll be able to sleep, hah.
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself… I kept taking screen shots of Ichigo because he looked so cool. and, and I usually try not to write that much but I couldn’t help it this time… I had so many thoughts after watching this episode.
