Welp, I'm pretty much sold on the idea that the plot is so far gone now that it's brilliance on Kubo's part. The badassness scale had been turned up to eleven, and Ichigo is like the second coming of Jesus. Surprisingly I think this fits fine with Bleach.
Aizen transforming more times than Frieza just to be decimated in the same manner as he was by Ichigo/Super Saiyan Goku brings up some great parallels.
Mugestu seriously fucks shit up. So Long Strawberry?
