The following is a sober and not at all sarcastic review of Ch. 518.
The first beloved character to return is, naturally, index finger
|"You wanna be a man!?"|
Many mes theorize that Ichigo's sword will now be unlike the Zangetsu of the past (since he's clearly now going by the moniker of Yuha Bach) and, instead of compressing his power into an easy to draw small black sword, it will expand his power into an easy to draw gigantic black sword. This is corroborated by the following meaningfully huge panel.
|Foreshadowing for the design of Ichigo's next Aizen finger rest, an obscure and esoteric Japanese cultural code word that that can only be expressed by the unique Japanese concept of "sword."|
|Sound, sound advice.|
Could it be that Aizen will craft Ichigo's new bankai to contain more ridges on which to rest his pointer? The answer is undoubtedly yes.
|The best sword design for scintillating finger stroking action.|
Let's just say there's a reason Aizen aimed to slice away Ichigo's lower half for himself.
And in any case, clearly Aizen will be foremost amongst the hax beasts who will most richly color our worlds and
|This guy seems awfully familiar, could it be because he is history|
|And Ichigo went home with a renewed appreciation for Mr. Presley's unique life flipping through his copy of the king of swing's tour de force autobiography, "Tsukishima Shuukurou Is All That I Am."|
Shuu-chan's having been the progenitor of all doors is cleverly implied by his appearance as the skeletal guardians of the Gate of Hell in Chapter 12
|Why didn't Tsukishima go to hell after being such an unnice anus? Shuu doesn't ever recall saying he didn't invent hell.|
|"I don't recall saying I never crafted all of your individual atoms to look like my bust, Ichigo."|
Forgotten character reintroduction blitz notwithstanding, Don Kan'onji probably isn't going to be reappearing anytime soon, so he's on Venus with Amelia Earhart (otherwise known as Shuu-chan's number 14 historical love slave).
|You can't see it, but the ice fortress is made of dead Byakuyas|
Of course, a complete in-depth analysis would take far too much space here. For those who are interested in our one and only master of the universe who is everybody's friend, the University of Toronto will have a course on this subject starting in 2019, along with the famous "Rebuttals of "Common Sense" arguments regarding the Tsukishima case and a lecture by the esteemed historian Niall Fergusson called "Why Dates Aren't All That Imporant."
Meanwhile, the physicists at CERN have discovered that each and every mathematical equation governing the behavior of the Higgs boson looks like ASCII art of a man in suspenders, proof that the theoretical Tsukishima Maxim is on the fast track to global consensus. Biologists have concluded through decades of focused research that all living things are intrinsically friends with Tsukishima. And finally, to make a fine point of all of this, it would seem as though Tsukishima has literally replaced the sun.
There's also the Tsukishima of Tsukishima and Shuu-chan shuu chan shuuuushishimagawara tsuki sukiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
|Shut up, feet!|
