Lately, I've been staying up late for the family ritual of watching Bleach. Not particularly difficult, since I'm allowed unlimited naps on the weekend. Another thing that makes it easy is that every plot drags on way beyond its natural conclusion. The fight between Ichigo & BulkyAura ran about 6 weeks, and never changed.
BulkyAura: Why dont't you surender?
Itchy: I can't.
then Itchy powers up to the next level, gets his ass kicked, and repeats, until he completely hulks out & Bulky finally checks out. All to the background music of Urahime whining : Ichigo! Ichigo!
And what's an Ichigo? Thought you'd never ask.
Note that Barbie is never afraid to show her face. Barbie's Bankai is invincible. Not like the phony power of Koga Kuchiki. One look at him and you know he's a looser.
