Bleach, Volume 37: Beauty is so SolitaryBleach, Volume 37: Beauty is so Solitary by Tite Kubo

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This closes out the story from a century ago, giving out the details about how Yoruichi and Urahara ended up runaways from the Soul Society, and how those half – Hollows (I can’t remember their names) ended up the way they did.

Then it gears up the battle between the Soul Society and Aizen’s crew while back in Hueco Mundo Ichigo and the others are still trying to rescue Orihime. This time the plot and the battles were balanced well enough to be interesting. However, the drag queen villain was utterly terrifying.

BLEACH 38: Fear For FightBLEACH 38: Fear For Fight by Tite Kubo

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This volume begins to descend into the usual nothing but battles thing that dominates far too much of this manga. They have to defend the four pillars to keep Aizen’s men from getting through. We get to see warriors we haven’t seen before (some of them are truly interesting) and this time the fighting didn’t seem too drawn out. However, Ichigo and his friends aren’t even in this. Sometimes it’s very annoying that the hero of the series can be forgotten for a very long time.
