ummmm we saw his eyes open like twice in the manga but i dont feel like searching for those pages.
Isshin literally having his face kicked in made the chapter for me.
Metered progression, Isshin's skills must be pretty formidable if even Aizen says it's powerful enough that he can't even sense him, Ichigo's maturity surfaces, and BINGO here comes Gin finally.
"For I being a poor man, have only my dreams & I have spread them beneath your feet. Tread carefully, for you tread upon my dreams."
Has anyone else noticed that Gin's sword is very small? It keeps me coming back to what Isshin dad said against the Grand Fisher.
EDIT: Also while snooping around I found this treasure
Gin: So... you're Kurosaki Itchigo
Itchigo: You know me?
Gin: So, he does exist.
he'll prob spend another year sitting on some chair before making a move (srsly, the dude is immune to hemorrhoids!)
And entire page that was essentially black, sometimes I think its to cut corners or something.
Otherwise loved the chapter though, Gin's bankai is something many have wanted to see for years.
i should say im surprised they cut it off at the bankai, but that be a lie, and Aizen vs ishin fabulous.
I am the bone of my sword. Steel is my body, and fire is my blood. I have created over a thousand blades. Unknown to Death. Nor known to life. Have withstood pain to create many weapons. Yet, those hands will never hold anything.
